Rod Run to the End of the World…2017! (Re-blogged)

Here’s a re-blog of mine from September of last year. I take photos of events I attend and post them here once in a while.

The pictures that I take aren’t of interest to anyone else. Then again, I don’t take pictures for the benefit of others. I take pictures of things that I like and which catch my eye.

Just like anyone and everyone else who photographs things, no?

This event is one which we have attended and participated in for the past three years: the Rod Run to the End of the World. It is an enjoyable event for those of us who love the allure, artwork, and sheer poetry of the classic, American-made automobile. This is the 34th time that it has been held, and the town which hosts it has changed very little in those 34 years.

Other than the vehicles, the only other reason to attend is for the opportunity to taste some of the best barbecue this side of the Rockies! Terrell’s Texas BBQ, out of Portland, Oregon, is slow-cooked to bring out the juicy tenderness of ribs and brisket. Award-winning and succulent, even southern-fried rednecks can’t help but glomp down on a spicy ‘Hot Mama’ and smile! Nomnomnomnomnom…

Here are just a few of the pictures I took today. The sun…

Titanic Tuesday

Every warrior-woman needs a good bodyguard. Or two. Or, even three. The truly fortunate find five.

I have three. That’s a good enough number.


Test #2 Completed

I completed another test the other day. Data has been compiled and is being compared.

My suspicions have been confirmed, but one more test will be conducted solely for shits and giggles.

As if there was any doubt in the first place.

Again, no surprise. Predictable, per usual.

It is to laugh.


Last Week Tonight: Italian Election

In this installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver points out the fact that America isn’t the only country dealing with conspiracy theories and neo-fascism when it comes to politics and elections. That shithole country, Italy, is the just latest one to do so.


Saturday Songs for “the Quiet Beatle” (Re-blogged)

R.I.P., George. You are missed by many.

George Harrison: 25 February 1943 – 29 November 2001

I wanted to play some Saturday songs in honour of George Harrison, known as “the Quiet Beatle” of “Fab Four” fame. Today marks what would have been his 74th birthday, were it not for his untimely death in 2001 at the age of 58 due to complications from throat and lung cancer. He also survived an attempt on his life in 1999, when a madman broke into his house and proceeded to stab him multiple times. From Wikipedia:

On 30 December 1999, Harrison and his wife were attacked at their home, Friar Park. Michael Abram, a 36-year-old fan, broke in and attacked Harrison with a kitchen knife, puncturing a lung and causing head injuries before Olivia Harrison incapacitated the assailant by striking him repeatedly with a fireplace poker and a lamp.[166][168] Following the attack, Harrison was hospitalised with…

5 Songs on Sunday

There have been snow flurries off and on over the weekend, but not enough to stick around much. Warmer here on the coast than it is inland. Seattle has gotten a nice blanket of the stuff while we stay wet with the rain.

Since I didn’t do an official “5 on Friday” post I figured I’d play these five songs which I heard over the past couple of days. Musical themes are fun.


Saturday Sensibility

No preface needed. Watch, listen, and learn, if you have the capacity and capability to do so.



That’s my word of the day. Some things are inevitable, even if they occur slowly. The wheels of justice turn at glacial movement at times. A bit of forward progress followed by regression. Movement which leaves indelible marks.

Criminal behavior, even that done covertly, can be discovered and rooted out. Those scumbags in California, for example, were finally imprisoned for the disgusting things they did to their own children. Each is being held on $12 million bail. I’m not surprised that they pled “not guilty.” Delusional people have the uncanny ability to justify their mindless, hateful, despicable actions.

If you know of a crime and do nothing about it, then you can be held responsible. This goes for cybercrimes as well.

I can’t wait to see the house of cards fall. I wonder who will go down with it, and how many others will collapse in turn.

It is inevitable.


Some Funny Friday Memes! (Re-blogged)

Happy Friday, everyone! Enjoy this reblogged post of mine from November of last year.

Eyrie Of An Aries

I have a number of in-game screen-shots to sort through for my “Five on Friday” post, so here’s a bit of comedy and some music to tide you over until it gets published. Keep in mind that said post might be delayed until Saturday!

Music is oftentimes in the background when I’m in a creative mood, so why not share the joy and the laughter?

Thursday Mashup

Since there was no new episode of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee aired last night, I figured I’d mash up this blog post with a few comedic clips from my other late-night helper elves.

Some of the clips are from 2016. You will see why.
