I miss this show.

Clicks, clacks

My, my the clock in the sky is pounding away
There's so much to say
A face, a voice, an overdub has no choice
And it cannot rejoice

Wanting to be, to hear and to see
Crying to the sky

But the porpoise is laughing good-bye, good-bye

Clicks, clacks
Riding the backs of giraffes for laughs
is alright for a while
The ego sings of castles and kings and things
That go with a life of style

Wanting to feel, to know what is real
Living is a lie

But the porpoise is waiting good-bye, good-bye

Wish me luck. I am going to try this stuff. Heather swears by it and many others agree that it puts them out. It is 10:56 p.m. and I just made it home. I bought the movie Control today and I really want to watch it so badly, but sleep is the priority at the moment.
Friday I will spend time with someone who noticed I was behaving better without meds(a future blog). She was the first to notice and she means a lot to me. A very good listener and an open mind. I love you Val for this and our time spent together is always treasured. You were the first mind that can keep my manic mind grounded when it is up. I alway think of you first when I am in this mood. Over the past years I have acquired a few more friends that have this power and I value them dearly. Yoko, you are the most recent one and I hope that I did not lose you my dear.
I can't wait to see this movie, it played in Washington D.C. for a second when it was released than it disappeared. If you are reading this Bonnie, this was the movie that we were going see when we met. Too bad you were ill. Some movies are best seen at the theater and I know this would be great on the big screen. Oh yeah Val, you better find I really need a good laugh.


i'm otta here like last year


11:32 p.m.


2 hours of rest/need more!!!

It Was 40 Years Ago Today

I started looking @ this camera and went in different directions, but still come back to this model. A good friend suggested the name. Thank you! I have spent a lot of time researching, talking to others and viewing it's results. A few weeks ago I held a friend's D80. I had it in manual mode and just aimed it at random subjects without hitting the shutter and felt like {Oh yeah! this is what I need}. I feel good about this next step. My mind needs this badly and all I do is see images everyday/night that can not be captured. I have so many concepts in my head and also have a human subject that I want to document and experiment with. I just need the key to unlock my kaleidoscopic mind that has been somewhat closed and limited to a web cam for a month now. It has been one of the roughest months in my life. Up, down, diagonal and crushed to bits.
My art needs and will flow much better with this.  

After years of waiting. Nothing came. As your life flashed before your eyes. You realize
I'm a reasonable man
get off, 
get off, 
get off my case
I'm a reasonable man
get off my case, get off my case
After years of waiting
After years of waiting
Nothing came
And you realize your looking, 
looking in the wrong place
I'm a reasonable man
get off my case, 
get off my case
I'm a reasonable man
get off my case, 
get off my case, 
get off my case
I'm a reasonable man
get off my case, 
get off my case, 
get off my case
After years of waiting
I'm a reasonable man
get off my case, 
get off my case, 
get off my case
I'm a reasonable man,
get off my case, 
get off my case, 
get off my case
I'm a reasonable man,
get off my case, 
get off my case, 
get off my case
I'm a reasonable man, get off my case, get off my case, get off my case

Big Ideas (don't get any) from James Houston on Vimeo

Don't get any big ideas
they're not gonna happen
You paint yourself white
and feel up with noise
but there'll be something missing

Now that you've found it, it's gone
Now that you feel it, you don't
You've gone off the rails

So don't get any big ideas
they're not going to happen
You'll go to hell for what your dirty mind is thinking

Sometimes Thom adds this verse when performing:

She stands stark naked and she beckons you to bed
don't go, you'll only want to come back again

Found on:
In Rainbows
This song was originally introduced by the band as an untitled piece, but on Web sites it is often referred to as "Big Ideas (Don't Get Any)." Thom first heard this title from Matt Pinfield in a MTV interview for 120 Minutes. The title "Nude" is the title that appears on the band's set lists, though the song has never been referred to elsewhere by this name. The piece features both Thom and Jonny on keyboards, and it is as gorgeous and mysterious as both "Motion Picture Soundtrack" and "True Love Waits" as far as the unreleased material is concerned. Influenced by the notion that we live in a man's world, a place where men can get whatever they desire, the song also explores the guilt that men feel when they commit certain acts, like cheating on their partners.

On May 6, 2006, "Nude" was performed by Radiohead in Copenhagen at their first concert of the year. It is speculated that the band have recorded this song and it will be included in their next release.


As the full moon rises this Wednesday evening, June 18, many people will be fooled into thinking it's unusually large.

The moon illusion, as it's known, is a trick in our minds that makes the moon seem bigger when it's near the horizon. The effect is most pronounced at full moon. Many people swear it's real, suggesting that perhaps Earth's atmosphere magnifies the moon.

But it really is all in our minds. The moon is not bigger at the horizon than when overhead.

The illusion will be particularly noticeable at this "solstice moon," coming just two days before summer starts in the Northern Hemisphere. The reason, according to NASA, lies in lunar mechanics: The sun and full moon are like kids on a see-saw; when one is high, the other is low. This week's high solstice sun gives us a low, horizon-hugging moon and a strong, long-lasting version of the illusion.

If it's any consolation, space station astronauts report the same effect.

Here's how it works: Your mind believes things on the horizon are farther away than things overhead, because you are used to seeing clouds just a few miles above, but the clouds on the horizon can indeed be hundreds of miles away. So if we think something (such as the moon) is farther away, and it's not, then it seems larger.

If you remain doubtful, test the idea yourself. Go out at moonrise with a small object, perhaps a pencil eraser. Hold it at arm's length as the moon rises and compare the sizes of the moon and the eraser, then repeat the experiment an hour or two later when the moon is high in the sky. A rolled up tube of paper works well, too.

Moonrise times vary by location. On Wednesday, it will come up at these local times at these locations, according to NASA: New York City, 8:58 p.m.; Miami, 8:35 p.m.; Seattle, 9:51 p.m.

The moon rises about 50 minutes earlier Tuesday night, when the effect will also be noticeable because the moon will be nearly full. Oh, and that raises another fallacy: There's no such thing as a full moon.

Additional moonrise times for your location are available from the U.S. Naval Observatory Web site.

June 16, 1884: A Technology With Plenty of Ups and Downs

This video is from 2006

The first amusement-park roller coaster was really two roller coasters: one ride out and one ride back. The continuous circuit came later.
1884: The first gravity roller coaster designed and built specifically as an amusement ride opens at Coney Island, New York. It is a commercial success and leads to the building of roller coasters all over the world.

LaMarcus Adna Thompson's Coney Island coaster, which, for a nickel ($1.10 in today's money), hurtled passengers down an undulating 600-foot-long track at speeds of up to a blistering 6 mph, would hardly be recognizable to riders of modern-day roller coasters.

Passengers faced sideways, for one thing, and the track was not laid out in a continuous loop. Like the switchback gravity railway used by Pennsylvania coal miners that inspired it, the Coney Island coaster ran point-to-point, with nothing but gravity to provide the propulsion.

The ride began atop a 50-foot-high platform, and when it reached the other end, passengers had to disembark so the cars could be switched over to the return track for the ride back to the starting point.

From Thompson's Coney Island coaster, the technology quickly evolved. Within a year, the original tracks were replaced by an oval course that allowed riders to remain seated from start to finish. The seats on this new coaster, which was known as the Serpentine Railway, faced forward in what became the standard configuration for roller coaster cars the world over.

Thompson reportedly developed his idea from the Mauch Chunk switchback gravity railroad in Pennsylvania, a coal-hauling device that, in 1827, was used to provide thrill rides to the locals when not in use to deliver coal to the town of Mauch Chunk (since renamed Jim Thorpe).

But the origins of the roller coaster go back much further, to 17th-century Russia. The earliest coasters were actually slides, carved from specially constructed ice hills outside St. Petersburg. The first man-made coaster using structural support is believed to have been built on the orders of Catherine the Great in that city's Gardens of Oreinbaum.

Roller coasters were built in other European countries as well, before catching on in the United States.

What we think of as the modern roller coaster appeared soon after Thompson's success at Coney Island. Because entrepreneurs were scrambling to make money, there was a lot of experimentation. and a lot of these rides were just flat-out dangerous.

The classic coaster was built on a wooden frame (and was referred to as a "woodie" in the business). Since all coasters rely on gravity to gain and maintain speed, track layout became all-important. The cars themselves make the initial ascent using a pulley-operated chain.

The world-famous Matterhorn bobsleds at Disneyland, which opened in 1959 almost 75 years to the day after Thompson's coaster, became the first roller coaster to use tubular steel track. This innovation allows designers to incorporate maneuvers like loops and corkscrews into the course.

The Scenic Railway in Melbourne, Australia's Luna Park, built in 1912, is currently the oldest operating roller coaster in the world.

In 2050, your lover may be a ... robot

Romantic human-robot relationships are no longer the stuff of science fiction -- researchers expect them to become reality within four decades.

And they do not mean simply, mechanical sex.

"I am talking about loving relationships about 40 years from now," David Levy, author of the book "Love + sex with robots", told AFP at an international conference held last week at the University of Maastricht in the south-east of the country.

"... when there are robots that have also emotions, personality, consciousness. They can talk to you, they can make you laugh. They can ... say they love you just like a human would say 'I love you', and say it as though they mean it ..."

Robots as sex toys should already be on the market within five years, predicted Levy, "a sort of an upgrade of the sex dolls on sale now".

These would have electronic speech and sensors that make them utter "nice sounds" when a human caresses their "erogenous zones".

But to build robots as real partners would take a bit longer, with conversation skills being the main obstacle for developers.

Scientists were working on artificial personality, emotion and consciousness, said Levy, and some robots already appear lifelike.

"But for loving relationships -- that is something completely different. In loving relationships there are many more things that are important. And the most difficult of all is conversation.

"You want your robot to be able to talk to you about what is interesting to you. You want a partner who has some similar interest to you, who talks to you in a manner that pleases you, who has a similar sense of humour to you."

The field of human-computer conversation is crucial to building robots with whom humans could fall in love, but is lagging behind other areas of development, said the author.

"I am sure it will (happen.) In 40 years ... perhaps sooner. You will find robots, conversation partners, that will talk to you and you will get as much pleasure from it as talking to another human. I am sure of it."

Levy's bombshell thesis, whose publication has had a ripple-effect way beyond the scientific community, gives rise to a number of complicated ethical and relationship questions.

British scholar Dylan Evans pointed out the paradox inherent to any relationship with a robot.

"What is absolutely crucial to the sentiment of love, is the belief that the love is neither unconditional nor eternal.

"Robots cannot choose you, they cannot reject you. That could become very boring, and one can imagine the human becoming cruel against his defenseless partner", said Evans.

A robot could conceivably be programmed with a will of its own and the ability to reject his human partner, he said, "but that would be a very difficult robot to sell".

Some warn against being overhasty.

"Let us not exaggerate the possibilities!" said Dutch researcher Vincent Wiegel of the Technological University of the eastern town of Delft.

"Today, the artificial intelligence we are able to create is that of a child of one year of age."

But Levy is unyielding. He is convinced it will happen, and predicts many societal benefits.

"There are many millions of people in the world who have nobody. They might be shy or they might have some psychological hang-ups or psycho-sexual hang-ups, they might have personality problems, they might be ugly ...

"There will always be many millions of people who cannot make normal satisfactory relationships with humans, and for them the choice is not: 'would I prefer a relationship with a human or would I prefer a relationship with a robot?' -- the choice is no relationship at all or a relationship with a robot."

They might even become human-to-human relationship savers, he predicted.

"Certainly there will be some existing human-human relationships where one partner might say to the other partner: 'if you have sex with a robot I'm leaving you'.

"There will be others who say: 'when you go on your business trip please take your robot because I happen to worry about the red light district'."
