Cats in space: A few words on felines and the space program

Cats. Cats in space. Even better right? I know. Anyway, cats have been helping the space program probably since before you were born. Since 1947 cats have been being studied by the air force to learn about reflexes in micro gravity. The techniques that astronauts use today to deal with weightlessness are derived from watching kittens in a near weightless environment.  Continue reading Cats in space: A few words on felines and the space program

Closest Comet Approach in 250 Years as P/2016 BA14 Passes Earth Tuesday

March 22, 2016 at approximately 7:30 a.m. CDT comet P/2016 BA14 will buzz earth closer than any comet has in over 250 years.

Mortician imagery ripped off again but with a twist this time…

This. This is what it all comes down to. You work hard in a rewardless scene for decades making little to no money, bootlegged to no end, copied and poorly replicated by many for it to come down to this. I can handle all of that.

Fashion company Avalone premiered their new  Fall/Winter Collection of Dark sportswear inspired by ’90s death metal bands. Anyone notice any similarities here? Pricks…  Continue reading Mortician imagery ripped off again but with a twist this time…

That time things got heavy man!

Back in September of 2015 scientists detected  a pair of black holes that spun towards each other and combined into an even larger black hole, all taking place about 1.3 billion light years away. These black holes are around 30 times bigger than our own sun and I would assume this event is just what they were hoping for to help shed some light on a bunch of the mysteries surrounding things like gravity, time, space, dark matter, etc.  Continue reading That time things got heavy man!

Dee Snider and the School of Rock

So I met Dee Snider today. Totally down to earth nice guy. My girl’s daughter goes to the School of Rock here in Las Vegas and Dee’s doing a song with a few of the students at Vegas View Recording in Henderson for his upcoming solo record. She got to record on a track doing backups with Dee and it was produced by Grammy and Oscar award winning producer/musician Damon Ranger. Both guys were gentlemen, a bunch of fun, and did just great with the kids.  Continue reading Dee Snider and the School of Rock
