Capturing Kazakhstan’s Two Capitals

Beautiful photographs of the capital(s) of Kazakhstan.


In documenting the old and new capitals of Kazakhstan, Amsterdam-based photographer Ryan Koopmans managed to capture the country’s ever-changing urban landscape with its huge tower blocks and peculiarly symmetrical public gardens.

Confessions of a Social Media Dork

My friend Brian, over at Bonnywood Manor, states very concisely how I feel about “anti-social” media in this well-written article.🙂

Bonnywood Manor

Social Media Dork 2

I do know some things. I’m fairly hip to what’s going on in politics (although my use of the word “hip” dates me severely), I’m generally savvy about what constitutes good music and what does not (more dating with the “savvy”) and I can kick your ass when it comes to movie trivia. (Unless you’re talking about movies released in the last five years or so, because a lot of them are crammed with noise-filled crap that doesn’t amount to anything. But I’m not bitter.) What I don’t seem to be able to grasp? The nuances of this thing called social media, which has overtaken the planet faster than the Bubonic Plague wiped out half of Europe, back in the day when the wearing of codpieces and the subjugation of women were considered respectful leisure activities.

Granted, I was born long before technology allowed one to spontaneously share with the…

Sepultura’s Friday Fun-time: Movies!

The topic of this post might surprise those who follow me and actually read what I write!

For those who are new to my blog, or just haven’t been paying attention, I don’t do movies or television shows. When I do watch, I watch sports or reruns – most of what is aired these days bores me to tears, save for comedies, animated series, or my anime on [adult swim]. I prefer books, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t watch ANY movies! I decided to post an awesome scene from three films that I genuinely like, and me liking a movie is a rare thing, indeed. The movies that I like might surprise many, as well – but, that’s what you get for having prejudiced expectations, LOL!


First movie: Ladyhawke. It was on TV last weekend, and I had it on while I did some housework. Hadn’t seen it for years, and I’m sure many consider it a B-movie, but it wasn’t bad as far as I was concerned. Here’s one of the best scenes from that film: “The Transformation.”

Second movie: Hero. This movie was awesome, in my not-so-humble opinion – and I despise Quentin Tarantino, so that says a lot! I love this scene in particular: “Courtyard Battle.”

Last, but definitely not least, Blade Runner. To me, it is, and always will be, one of the most epic films ever made. The best version of the movie, for me, is the 1992 Director’s Cut. I think that it is the most pure, unadulterated version of the 1982 original, without the annoying, unnecessary narration. Even though the movie is nothing like the book that it is based on, titled Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (which I own and have read), it is brilliantly done.

This scene is the climactic moment: “Tears in the Rain.”

Friday Flashback: Weekend Fun

I found a few more photos that seemed alright to share, so here they are: scenes from the Puyallup Fair, where I first got to see the Moody Blues in concert; and the well-known, annual, Seattle Seafair! I also decided to add two old gaming screen-shots, and a Moody Blues song that I enjoy almost as much as ‘The Voice’ – I hope that you like it, too.


The Moody Blues in concert, sans orchestra…and a couple of people sailing in for a touchdown.

All-natural…it’s the best – and only – way to be!🙂

Black Women of Brazil


Note from BW of Brazil: Wow! Has it been three weeks already?!? Ya know, as a regular blogger, I am always consistently preparing new material for the blog’s readership. Whether translating new material or preparing my own thoughts on such material, sometimes I lose track of articles that are already done and just need posting or those that sit in my “post bank” just waiting for official release. As I’m writing now, I just realized that I have 23 such articles sitting in the bank, some going as far back as September of last year! Incredible how time flies sometimes! Today’s piece is a great example. 

11 Women arriving for the 2nd annual March of Kinky/Curly Hair Pride

I had prepared this piece almost three weeks ago and had planned to post it on the following day. But then what happened? The 2016 Olympics soon approached and the piece got…

Right-Wing Radio Host Gets Owned By Neil deGrasse Tyson For Lying About Him

Have I mentioned what an awesome person Neil deGrasse Tyson is? This reblogged post shows one of many reasons why I hold him in high esteem!🙂

The Fifth Column

Right-Wing Radio Host Gets Owned By Neil deGrasse Tyson For Lying About Him

Featured image via screen capture


Note to conservatives who want to pretend to be journalists: be sure that where you get your information is not a satirical site, or you’ll be humiliated like this idiot.

This is especially true if you decide to attack a professional scientist, because if you haven’t done your research properly you can rest assured they will discover that fact when they research your claims.

In this case, that’s exactly what popular scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson did to right-wing radio host Neal Larson this week after the conservative mouthpiece repeated the charge that Tyson “mocked” a little girl for wanting to live on Jupiter, a planet where no human could survive.

The alleged “mocking” supposedly took place in front of a crowd and on Twitter, Larson crowed in the vicious hit job on Tyson and his character in an op-ed criticizing Tyson for simply inserting…

un peu de calme et de tendresse…

A beautiful montage of photos in Iceland…take a walk through a Virtual Playground!🙂

my virtual playground

parmi toutes les tragédies humaines – guerres et catastrophes naturelles – qui se déroulent 24/24 à travers la planète, voici qqs images paisibles – un peu de calme et de sensibilité, de douceur et de sérénité dans la pure simplicité, dont il faut profiter envers et contre tout… essayons de regarder la vie comme une alliée, certes exigeante, dure et sévère, mais pas comme une éternelle “rivale”… on reparle souvent du “bonheur”, en lui attribuant de nouvelles définitions, alors que pour moi, ce sont les courts instants de tendresse, de paix, d’émerveillement, ici et là, parfois dans un silence délivrant et détachant… ce qui me fait penser aux mots d’Albert Camus:”Certains soirs la douceur se prolonge, et cela aide à mourir, de savoir que de tels moments reviendront sur la terre après nous…” “les fruits” de mon 3e périple islandais auront été plus importants que la destination elle-même – une…
