    Ah, international disease. Hope you're on the mend. I recently experienced an intercontinental cold.

    South Dakota. "Stratobowl" Historic balloon flights. This is why the Stratobowl is "on the map". From here, in 1934 and 1935, the Army Air Corps and National Geographic Society launched manned balloon flights into the stratosphere to a record 72,395 feet. It was then that this little valley became known as the "Stratobowl" and the birthplace of the space age. Much has been written about these historic flights since they were very significant, newsworthy events. The National Geographic documented them and there was a lot of media and newpaper coverage. You can easily find a great deal of information about the history of the Stratobowl by doing a web search and checking out any of the many excellent websites available, such as Morning Star Balloon Company and wikiepidia.com. The Explorer II Gondola. The Smithsonion National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC is home to 1935 Explorer II gondola. Clearly, this underscores the historical significance of these flights - the beginning of the Space Age. To learn more, see the Smithsonion Museum site. If you happen to be in the Black Hills area, there are two museums which have high quality displays about these flights. They are the South Dakota Air and Space Museum, which is located next to Ellsworth Air Force Base, in Box Elder, and The Journey Museum, which is near downtown Rapid City, SD.

    Movies that messed you up as a kid

    Nor can I. I remember having those spine-chilling moments, but as for being "messed up", that didn't happen, AFAIK. [involuntarily jerks head]

    The Swamp drainage has begun

    Let me guess: no drainage will happen? Same as it ever was? Sure wasn't going to waste 26 minutes on "Millennial Millie".

    Again, here's a good time for that bit of Latin I quoted earlier. Damned phone.

    This. Never understood the metric of hit recording = quality music. Captain Beefheart wasn't a terrible poet, either.

    I enjoy the Captain. But at the moment, I've got that fuckin' Seger tune in my head.

    Exactly. Whether or not they produce something I enjoy. But I don't listen to music to "feel good" necessarily. Music for films, opera, performance art can evoke a great range of emotional responses. Edited to add- I enjoy technical precision, counterpoint, superimposed meters, dissonance, atonality, vocalists who have tone control and know when it's not needed. Oops, I misspelled "Seger".

    Welcome to my world. Why do a lot of people think Bob Segar is a good musician?

    Learn the proper use of apostrophes, and never forget.

    Then definitely not anarchists in the classical sense. Proper anarchists have been vilified by the PTB, in print, false flag attacks and through infiltration of movements, for over a century. Hie thee to PA.

    Those weren't real anarchists. Especially if they were wearing black and had masks.
