Need something to watch ?
Half way through Generation Kill and it is both thrilling and funny and terribly disturbing. One of the writers is David Simon who was behind Homicide.
Something to listen to?
Sam Phillips who is kind of like Aimee Mann but a little more awake, a little rawer (not the best quality here but you’ll get the idea). Other than that, though I was not initially crazy about the last Wilco cd, now I am. Been playing that and Gaint Sand who are all over the map but in the same musical county as Calexico.
But the big buzz lately is all about The XX, and listening to it, you just aren’t sure if they are really good, or another narcoleptic background band…see what you think.
Onto an oddity:
The tubular clouds as reported at Wired:
These long, crazy-looking clouds can grow to be 600 miles long and can move at up to 35 miles per hour, causing problems for aircraft even on windless days.
Known as Morning Glory clouds, they appear every fall over Burketown, Queensland, Australia, a remote town with fewer than 200 residents. A small number of pilots and tourists travel there each year in hopes of “cloud surfing” with the mysterious phenomenon.
Similar tubular shaped clouds called roll clouds appear in various places around the globe. But nobody has yet figured out what causes the Morning Glory clouds.
