Finally! After years of trying I finally got my lightning and rainbow picture. What an awesome evening. I headed out late afternoon, shot a little on the SE side, then drove across town catching up with Bryan Snider and Chris Frailey, two awesome photographers/stormchasers. We shot for a little while, then got dumped on by a microburst while driving up the freeway. I-10 slowed to a near crawl, with half the traffic pulling over and stopping completely. Can't blame them as visibility dropped to 20 feet. At the next stop Bryan and Chris headed NW back towards home and I headed SE towards this rainbow. I was just trying to find a foreground without telephone poles or other junk in the way. Found it just in time as this was the last bolt to strike before the storm dissipated into nothing. This photo is now available on my web site at

Chiva Falls 1/31/15 - Kim Lusk via FB AZStar comments.
Never seen this place with anymore than a trickle

A murder of crows met a manslaughter of grackles; the park was never the same.

via Car Talk, Quotes from Tom Magliozzi:

“It's only a car.”

"Do it while you're young.  You may never have another chance to do anything this stupid again!"

"Happiness equals reality minus expectations"

“How do you know if you've got a good mechanic? By the size of his boat.”

"If money can fix it, it's not a problem."

“Our Humility is what makes us great.”

“Reality often astonishes theory.”

"Life is too short to own a German car.”

“Kids: get away from the cell phones, get away from the computers, and mail someone a fish before it’s too late.”

“Non Impediti Ratione Cogitationis” - “Unencumbered by the thought process.”  Tom’s self-proclaimed motto.

“Never let the facts stand in the way of a good story"

"Some guy I met said it's amazing how we use cars on our show as an excuse to discuss everything in the world—energy, psychology, behavior, love, money, economics and finance. The cars themselves are boring as hell."

“It is better to travel in hope than arrive in despair.”

"If it falls off, it doesn't matter.”

"I like to drive with the windows open. I mean, before you know it, you're going to spend plenty of time sealed up in a box anyway, right?”

That thing you see when a girl isn't used to wearing  long dress and gets in the car.

 "Chattanooga-based photographer, Daryl Thetford, creates digital collages. "Branding Day at the Bird Ranch," a fun, brightly colored composition of a sunglass-wearing cowboy rounding up the flock of grackles at his feet. The cowboy was doing rope tricks in Fort Worth, Texas."
 "Thetford replaced his face with that of a friend (he liked the campiness of the sunglasses). One of Thetford's own hands stands in for the the fast-moving cowboy's blurred one."
 "Thetford photographed the grackles in a park on that same Texas trip. He added Chinese characters on their feathers and, in fact, words run all through the background of the picture, some in English, some in Chinese."
 "Other text was sourced from paper stuck on a gas pump, part of a circus sign and writing from a chalkboard at a produce stand. The large stars in the collage's top half were plucked from an old sign."

To our community of photographers: We're currently working to understand and resolve Sherwin Williams' use of our blog photos —your photos — on its website without permission. The "Chip It" service seems to be a strange interpretation of Pinterest. Full-size images link back to the blog, but the culling of images for commercial purposes is absolutely unacceptable to us, and we're working to stop the practice. Our blog and your photographs are protected by copyright, and we'll be enforcing it. Please bear with us as we wade through the details.

Once it's in social media its like a free-for-all.

You know it's bad when even the Suggest Bot is pushing Blue Head Dead profiles. As far as I can tell Dave hasn't posted anything in 18 months. Hey Matthew, I think you need to do some housekeeping.

A recap of Frontline, the Generation Like episode

Depending on your age group you're going to see a completely different Facebook or YouTube than other people. From the videos that are suggested along the right hand side to the recommended posts to the advertising in your stream, it's all tailored to your demographic. One thing advertisers have figured out is after years of exposure to the come-on, people over 30 are not your prime market. They're too resistant. You have to get the kids hooked before they know better and the economy of Likes is the ideal way to turn the teen consumer into the teen marketer.
It's not monetary wealth that gives Facebook its value, rather its worth is based on the volume of Likes they can generate. It's the same social currency that powers Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and all the other platforms.
They visited a company called The Audience. They're a combination of talent agency, publisher, promoter and network all in one. They orchestrate a calendar of content to push their talent, complete with corporate integration. But they don't call it corporate sponsorship. Instead, they congratulate you on the fact that you found someone to fund your art.
They also featured Ceili Everdeen, a total Hunger Games fan. For the amount of time, hours a day, she was devoting to tweeting and re-tweeting Hunger Game content, she could have her own office in Hollywood making 70K a year. But instead she does it all just for a few Sparks, Likes and the outside chance an actor from the series will respond to a tweet. Clips from the movie were kind of a spoiler for me because I have yet to see any of those movies but they did draw some interesting parallels to social media. Surviving meant getting people to like you and people in high places were pulling strings behind the scenes.
