There are three parts to this song that every fan can play in his head....sing the lyrics perfectly, play the synth part right on cue...and rock the song beginning to end on the drums. Very few can actually do it but everyone can do it in their mind. I know I can. Viva Pert! He's a drum God!

You gotta wonder what kind of tall grass the astronomical society is smoking these days. Is it a planet or is not a planet? First we have 9, then 8, now maybe 10. Wtf dudes. 
This year's missions to the outer solar system are set to shake up the planetary family tree

I've been reading this off and on all day. There's an entire section dedicated to Technology and Human Values. Quotes heavily from Arthur C. Clarke and even Nietzsche "....reminds us of Nietzsche's idea that man is a rope stretched across the abyss between the animal and the superhuman." The really interesting thing are the concerns about Technology. It sounds very much like the rhetoric of today. "The impersonal quality of technology's effect has been noted frequently...technology's concerns are: Will it work? Is it effecient? Can it be used? Is it economically feasible? These are the familiar tests. They are really part of that quality once called Yankee Ingenuity and more recently American Know-how."

......"in the ages to come dullards may remain placid on Earth and real genius will flourish in space---the realm of the machine not flesh and blood" (Clarke)

NASA is mourning the passing today of actor Leonard Nimoy, most famous for his role as Star Trek's Vulcan science officer Mr. Spock. The sci-fi classic served as an inspiration for many at NASA over the years, and Nimoy joined other cast members at special NASA events and worked to promote NASA missions, as in this 2007 video he narrated before the launch of the Dawn mission to the asteroid belt. Nimoy also was there for the 1976 rollout of the shuttle Enterprise, named for the show's iconic spacecraft.

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden issued the following statement upon hearing of Nimoy's passing: “Leonard Nimoy was an inspiration to multiple generations of engineers, scientists, astronauts, and other space explorers. As Mr. Spock, he made science and technology important to the story, while never failing to show, by example, that it is the people around us who matter most. NASA was fortunate to have him as a friend and a colleague. He was much more than the Science Officer for the USS Enterprise. Leonard was a talented actor, director, philanthropist, and a gracious man dedicated to art in many forms. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, and the legions of Star Trek fans around the world.”

Sleep all day
Just waiting for the Sun to set

I hang my clothes
Up on the line

When I die
I'll my hang my head beside the Willow Tree

When I'm dead
Is when I'll be free

And you can take my body
Put it in a boat

Light it on fire
You can use the kerosene

Take my body
Put it in a boat

Light it on fire
Send it out to sea

Ooooo Ooooo

Yeah yeah yeah...

Sleep all day
Just waiting for the Sun to set

I hang my clothes
Up on the line

When I die
I'll my hang my head beside the Willow Tree

When I'm dead
Is when I'll be free

So you can take my body
And put it in a boat

Light it on fire
You can use the gasoline

Take my body
And put it in a boat

Light it on fire
And send it out to sea

I've been to this Taco Bell three or four times this year for an after 10 PM urge for some Taco Bell. Service hasn't been the issue at all for me. My order has been correct every time and they always put enough hot sauce for my tastes. The drive-thru attendant has always been friendly if sometimes a little distracted. The reason I will go somewhere else next time is the food. Something is up with the taste. Last night I ordered a Been and Cheesy Burrito and two soft beef tacos. That's my under $4 meal. I ate the burrito first and was satisfied, but my tacos were inedible. On the first bite there was a strange taste to the meat like it had gone bad weeks ago or been stored under someone's sweaty armpit for days. I spit that bite out and took one more just to make sure it just wasn't my taste buds. Same result. Spit it out threw it away. Opened the 2nd taco all the way and I could smell the same awful flavor the other taco had. Threw it away and made a decision to never eat there again .

This was my first visit to Renfield's Corner. I didn't have the opportunity to sample all that Renfield's has to offer. However, the short time there was enough that I would certainly love to go back. I honestly can't remember the name of the other places I visited before or after Renfield's Corner. The name may have something to do with that I think. When a friend suggested we go to Renfield's Corner, I was immediately interested. I had recently been listening to several compilations by the composer Philip Glass. One piece is titled "Renfield (From Dracula Solo Piano)". Anyone not familiar with the story of Dracula's favorite lunatic, Renfield, might not ever see any connection between Renfield's Corner and Dracula. My imagination had conjured up something Gothic and along the lines of The Munsters.Thankfully, the owners opted instead for something simpler, spacious yet inconcpicuous and friendly. Very pleased with the bartenders, They were timesavers. These days many places have a large assortment of beers to choose from so reading a lenghty menu or trying to read a wall of taps is just time-consuming. So we asked the bartender for a suggestion. Without hesitation, he suggested a Hefe Weise by Franconia. We said ok and he poured the best Hefe Weise I've had in a long time. I'm not the biggest fan of this kind of beer because usually it's not very fresh, too cold, too hot, poured in wimpy mug or 12oz water glass, but this was very fresh, very smooth, chilled properly and served in proper size glass. I hope they maintain that. Also, great music selection playing in the background, Nothing ruins a bar faster than worn-out, house party standards from the 80s and early 90s. An up-to-date and choice selection of music. Eclectic but not obscure, and thankfully not Indie or Folk intensive. Next time I want to sample the food and take a better look inside. Good Beer, Good Service, Good place to stop in for a minute while you're in UpTown, and as far as I know it is also vampire and lunatic free.

I read all the negative reviews so far about this Sprint store, decided to go to the store and see for myself how bad could service actually be. This is the store I went to when I got my first mobile phone 6 yrs ago. Been a Sprint customer ever since, but I have not been back to the store since that day because I moved and I can pay my bill online and when I have questions I call Sprint, who have always been very helpful especially when I needed extra time to pay my bill and asked if I could do a "promise to pay" in order to keep service until I could pay. So I went. I walked in. They were pretty busy already, early in the day. I was in line for only a few seconds before someone asked me how I could be helped. I needed to pay my bill. I pretended to have no idea about the bill pay machine (I have heard about it through friends) and just said I needed to pay my bill. The associate not only told me about the bill pay machine, but also how I could wait and pay through a cashier if I needed change. So I made it clear I'd like to use the machine. She walked me through each step of using the bill pay machine. She was nice, courteous, and had stopped what she was doing to help me. That's very good service in my opinion ;)

Over the years the park has evolved. When my family moved here in 1983, one of the big attractions was the park. It was by no means a new park but it was still in really great shape. Today, if you were to circumnavigate the entire length of the trail, you will still find some of the old workout stations located along the trail. After 30 years the lumber that was used to construct them has fallen apart so most have been dismantled over time. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, the Mesquite Parks Department decided not to rebuild those areas that had suffered the most wear. The blue signs that once described how to do various exercises are no longer there, so you may be left to your own imagination as to how to use some of them. Most people don't walk the part of the park between Sybil Dr. and Hwy 80 which is wear you will find those old stations. Between Sybil Dr. And Peachtree is what is known as the newer part of Westover Park. During the late afternoon and early evening on any given day you will find many people running and walking the trail. Westover has 4 pavilions. The one located along Southwest Parkway closest to Peachtree is the most popular and best equipped pavilion: having not only a rest area close by but also two play areas for the kids to keep entertained. It also the most difficult one to reserve. Plan ahead. Those who show up and try to use it without a reservation are taking a huge chance of being asked to relocate to one of the pavilions farther down the trail. I would use the one at the opposite end of Westover park near Hwy 80. That part of the park is relatively forgotten but is still in great condition. There is also a good size parking lot which is almost always empty except for the occasional car or two belonging to athletes who still run the full length of the park. In case you find parks a little scarey, especially those that have trails that wander into wooded areas, Westover is perfect for you. It is rare to find yourself alone along the newer part of Westover. Even if you meander down the older part where fewer and fewer people still go, you are never very far from the road and there are houses located all along Southwest Parkway which goes the entire distance of the park. Late night visitation is discouraged. Police regularly patrol the park at night. They won't tell you to go home if you do decide to walk it late at night, but from experience I'd suggest enjoying the park during the suggested hours. I'll never forget one night walking the park when I came upon a giant spider web across the entire span of the trail. If I had not been using a flashlight, I most likely would have walked straight into it. For the most part, Westover is still a great park for your average outdoors aficionado. It is no Bob Eden Park but it still has the same charm and welcoming personality it had in 1983.
