New Favorite Album (1/7)…

I just discovered this album even though it has been around for over a decade: Rage Against the Machine. Awesome. Their guitarist is quite good. He does some really neat tricks with his axe. The first song I listened to on this album was “Killing in the Name” and really liked it, especially it’s repetitive use of “fuck you, I won’t do what you tell me.” You can definitely tell that they have a very leftist tilt after listening to half the songs on the album. And i mean leftist, not just progressive/Democratic. It is very leftist, but enjoyable to listen to.

Happy Perihelion Day (1/4)…

Today the Earth is its closest to the Sun in its yearly orbit. It is .983273 AU (91420479 miles or 147095551 km). And aphelion will be July 4, 2009.

Friday Kitty Blogging (1/2)…

OK, once again, time for more kitty blogging with the usual cute cat, but tonight a special guest: Puffalump. Puffalump is the orange cat in the picture and she has taken to becoming Queen Isabelle’s “mother”. Even though Puff is spayed (or is it neutered?; i can never remember which is which), and is 3 years old, once Izzy came into the house, Puff took right over as her guardian/protector/play pal. They really have fun playing and wrestling with each other, and after a good match they then lick each other all over and do it again. Very cute.
