Doctor Doctor – Please!

finally got back to Flight to Mars last night after an absence of 3 years – true, ROCK. This was the 15th year show – ‘wow’ doesn’t begin to describe it, definitely one of the best rock shows I’ve seen in a long time – looking at the most recent years (that i’ve missed) it looks like they’ve been on a Thin Lizzy kick of late too – there were several played last night – great stuff!

someone video’d the opening F2M song:

Looks like Mr McCready broke out a little Eruption in the Sat show:

Previous years’ clips can be seen from this search too.

Alex…we hardly knew ye….

Thu ,13/04/2017

just finished this book, Alex & Me – very interesting read. here’s a short video of what the book is about – Alex, the amazing African Grey parrot! Sadly he passed away in 2007, but his legacy and insights learned from his ‘birdbrain’ – live on.

Alex also made an appearance on Scientific American Frontiers and met Alan Alda – watch the whole episode here. You can fast forward to about 9:59 if you want to just watch Alex.

Museum of Flight, part deux….

Sat ,01/04/2017

So following on from the previous post regarding touring the Shuttle Trainer at Boeing’s Museum of Flight, here’s the rest of all the ‘plane nerd’ photos from most of the rest of the museum – enjoy!

I have to say, despite no flash, that ridiculous new phone of mine actually takes decent pics…..click on one from the gallery, then click it again to get the high-res version….

Mike B stirs up trouble… :)

Sat ,04/03/2017

–PROFANITY and SPOILER ALERT–

So we saw a Mike Birbiglia show last night (on TV) from a gig he did in Brooklyn (Thank God for Jokes) – very funny. In it, he references his stint as the emcee for The Gotham Awards and how he ended up reading VERBATIM this rant from David O’Russell’s recorded ‘attack’ on Lily Tomlin while filming I Heart Huckabees.  David O’Russell was directing that film at the time of the rant several years ago, and was now getting a lifetime achievement award at these same awards where Mike B was the emcee – boom!

Here’s a couple articles about MB’s emcee event:

David O. Russell’s Lily Tomlin Rant Came Back to Haunt Him at the Gotham Awards

Oh, Russell Roasted!

Definitely a funny comedy show, have always like Mike B (you’ll have to watch his show to see the bit), here’s the original video rant MB’s referring to:
