Tunesday: Cake–Comfort Eagle

I don’t have a big, personally significant story that goes with this song–it’s just a freaking fantastic tune by a super cool band that too few people know about.  If I needed to claim a personal theme song it might very well be this one.  Just imagine me walking through the scene, maybe wearing boots and a cool jacket, looking grim and cocky.  It fits. Cake rocks. This isn’t the last Tunesday appearance for them.

And yes, if you noticed, this week’s Tunesday post is actually posting on WP Wednesday, which where I live is still Tuesday by four hours. Why post late?  Becuase I’m busy, and because I liked the Memorial Day post a lot and wanted it to stay up at the top of my blog stream longer, so more folks would notice it.

2015 Summer Wonders #2: I Scream

The calendar might not say summer–yet, but….

Summer Found Photos–Daily Visions of Summer found floating around the interwebs: many vintage, some not, a lot shot on the beach, but not all. The only criteria is that these images evoke something quintessential about summer. What do you think about when you think about summer?  Like most of these pictures, I have no idea who made it, who the subject is, or even where the image originally appeared.  I do know that I love summer.

Mobula Rays Fly, Fly Away

This is awesome, but don’t take my word for it.  Look for yourself.

mobula rayAccording to the narrative on Fuzzysnail.com…

“Mobula rays aka flying rays are also known as the devil fish of the ocean. They are similar in appearance to manta rays and they fall under the family of eagle rays. They can attain a disc width of up to 5.2m (17 ft). They can weight over a ton and are known as the second largest Manta species in size. But other than this, not much is known about them. That is why this video is extra special.

NatGeo managed to capture this beautiful event where a record-breaking school of mobula rays arrived off the coast of Baja. Thousands of mobula rays are gathered in the ocean and it is really mind-blowing to see them fly….”

Is Pittsburgh The New Austin?

pittsburgh

Clickhole poses the question, making a compelling argument:

http://www.clickhole.com/article/pittsburgh-new-austin-austin-we-hoped-and-dreamed–1227

…but no, gentle readers, Pittsburgh is neither the new Austin nor next Portland.  Those places were just plain old rough drafts for the final, perfected product.

My Parents Were Awesome (Well, not my parents, but…)

Here’s a Found Summer Photo I can actually source.  I lifted it from a cool as cucumbers tumblr page called My Parents Were Awesome.  Sadly, my parents were not awesome–they took us on vacation in October because the crowds were shorter–visiting every restored Colonial Village from Saint Augustine (we had time to tour the fort, but not to actually step on the beach–mom hated sand) to Black Creek Village, Ontario.  I’ve seen more women in bonnets demonstrating spinning wheels than I care to admit.  Maybe the couple below would adopt me.
