Ever wonder what it sounded like during a shuttle launch? Well, to quote Youtube on this one….
—From the upcoming Special Edition Ascent: Commemorating Space Shuttle DVD/BluRay by NASA/Glenn a movie from the point of view of the Solid Rocket Booster with sound mixing and enhancement done by the folks at Skywalker Sound. The sound is all from the camera microphones and not fake or replaced with foley artist sound. The Skywalker sound folks just helped bring it out and make it more audible.
…in other words, that’s the actual sounds heard from that perspective during a shuttle launch, said perspective being that of the Solid Rocket Boosters…
Watched the movie Event Horizon earlier today and I have to admit, it’s not a bad movie, the critics’ notwithstanding…and its’ a sci-fi film, which I always try to watch whenever I can. It’s also got a pretty good piece of ending theme music, as evidenced by tonight’s musical selection, “Funky Shit” by The Prodigy.
…sometimes, the best thing to do is simply turn the volume up-to-eleven and let your troubles float away…

Just when I start to think the conservative love affair with perpetual war is beginning ever so slightly to wane, someone up and proves me wrong….our latest example: Glenn Beck-wannabe Lou Dobbs of Fox Business News, who believes that, due to China’s long-standing efforts to attack the U.S. via cyberwarfare, it is time the United States declares war on its’ largest trading partner….
Remember, a little over a year ago, the Joint Chiefs made a similar statement, that in certain instances, intrusions in cyberspace will be considered an act of war against the United States and will be treated as such. What more… what in God’s name would it take to create an act of war? You couldn’t do this in anything but the virtual world and have their be any doubt about it. It’s an act of war.(Crooks & Liars)
One of these days, conservatives will finally begin to drop the idea of perpetual wars….until then, God help America if they ever get back into power.
…just been that kind of day. Enough said.
