Giant Frogs (Goliath)
From an episode of 'Those Incredible Animals', recorded on VHS on January 2, 1993. The Goliath frog is the largest living frog on Earth. They can grow to over one foot in length, and weigh over eight pounds. Sadly, the population is in decline due to habitat destruction, human consumption and the pet trade.

Wolo Bad Boy and Big Bad Max {Don't buy THIS JUNK}
I'LL NEVER BUY ANOTHER WOLO HORN! From my experience, if your WOLO compact air horns last a year, you're lucky. If you've got money to burn, and your horns are easily replaced, go for it. I don't recommend them because they fail too easily, too early. As in this video, they sound good initially, but you'd better count on frequent replacement. I don't drive down the road blowing my horn for no good reason. I have bought 5 of them over the past 6 years. They sound sweet initially, but horn replacement in the smart fortwo is an ordeal, and I've spent way too much on Wolo horns, only to be disappointed with their short service life. I incorrectly assumed the horns would almost last as long as the car ... not so. If your horn's placement makes it an easy installation and you don't mind replacing every year or two, go for it. It sounds really good while it lasts, as in this video.

1996 Miracle Strip Tower demolition, Panama City Beach
Also called the Top of the Strip Tower. It was a Panama City Beach, Florida landmark for over 30 years until its demolition in 1996, the year after Hurricane Opal. Damage from the storm likely contributed to the decision to demolish. Miracle Strip Amusement Park, across Hwy 98 from the tower has also been wiped off the planet. The soul of Panama City Beach has been systematically eradicated over the last few decades.

This video documents a small part of my experience with Hurricane Opal, in October 1995. Those afflicted with a short attention span may skip to 10:08 to get to the closest approach. This is kind of a long video and may seem boring to some folks. Well, those folks aren't the intended audience, sorry. I had a condensed version posted. But, after 9-months it was viewed 13% of the two.

20170122 Nearby tornado, January 22, 2017
Had a little excitement mid-day today. A tornado indicated by radar passed, to the east of my location, headed northeast. It was close enough to hear after a minute into the video, and that's a first for me. I've heard people describe the sound as being like a freight train. Maybe it was because theirs was closer than mine. Mine sounded like a localized, moving, intense wind. When I first stepped outside the sound was coming from the south, and then gradually faded to my southeast. I commented, incorrectly, in the video that it was in the northeast. That's not my home and I got the direction wrong at the time. Sadly, the sound is difficult (but not impossible) to make out in the video I captured. The sound of the large magnolia tree nearby was louder than the tornado. The camera isn't as good at sorting out sounds as the human ear/brain combo. But if you do listen, you will be able to tell where the sound ends abruptly with a cut at 2:22. This was more than 3 hours ago and I haven't heard of anyone being hurt, or of any significant property damage from this particular tornado. It was passing through largely unpopulated woodland. And it's possible it wasn't even on the ground. There were some trees and power lines down from the thunderstorm. My cat's name is Spooky. She had no interest in going outside. Not like her at all, LOL You can see her video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8w8_7nCwcA&f

Central Oregon Coast
This video covers a few of my favorite locations on the central Oregon coast. The stretch covered is 120 miles long by road (or 80 miles as the crow flies). Location Index: 00:00 Cape Perpetua Scenic Area 00:10 Devil's Churn 18:04 Seal Rock State Park 30:43 Spouting Horn 36:07 Sunset Bay State Park 49:00 Depoe Bay The footage was captured in two visits to the area, 2006 and 2007. You may notice that in some scenes there is much more seafoam than others, even at the same location. 2006 is the foamy one. There was some pretty rough surf on that visit. I've traveled the PNW coast from Neah Bay and Mukkaw Bay in Washington State, down to the Northern California, for a total of about 3-weeks. And, I love it all. And hope I may one day return, perhaps to stay.

2013 Cripple Creek, Colorado - driving aimlessly
Due to the obvious smudge, either on the GoPro lens itself or on the camera housing, along with the bad shaking due to the poorly secured mount, I was really disappointed when I reviewed this video. I live 1,500 miles away and gawd knows when I'll be back. But, due to the flaws I won't likely spend the time to edit this. It is what it is.

Spooky's first year
Spooky showed up at my house one night in early May 2016, crying loudly after someone apparently dropped her off. I estimate she was 5 weeks old at the time and was born in late March 2016. We caught her after she climbed up a tree-bush. Because she's black and it was night, it was a challenge to catch the kitten. Very small at the time, she could actually sit in my hand. She had a lot of fleas and one eye was matted shut. Got her all fixed up and 10 months later she was anything but small, pretty big on the housecat scale. My Mother is 88 years old and Spooky loves to ride on her walker. She also seems to share my love of stormy weather. Thanks for watching my Spooky video. Please comment and give a thumbs up if you like it.

19970719 Hurricane Danny, Mobile Bay, Alabama - July 19, 1997
Hurricane Danny was very cooperative, from a chaser's point of view. When I went to sleep Saturday night it was drifting slowly and appeared to be headed for a landfall somewhere in the Florida panhandle. I figured I would get some rest and would probably awaken to deteriorating weather conditions. But, when I woke up and checked on the current stats I was surprised to learn that it had become nearly stationary over Mobile Bay. Within a half hour, I had my camcorder, Weather Radio and other paraphernalia packed up and I hit the road. The east shore of Mobile Bay was about a 170-mile drive, but well worth it. I spent about 6 hours scouting out the east side of the storm, a most unusual opportunity because it was still nearly stationary. The Mobile radio stations were providing excellent coverage, including live call-ins from listeners with updates from locations all around the bay. By listening to these reports and to the NOAA weather radio I managed to position myself at Point Clear and witness what appeared to be the eye wall. That is if you can even say Danny had an eye wall. If you're interested in Danny, you can read a storm summary from the Weather Channel's John Hope. http://www.peacepond.com/Victor/HopeDany.htm

1996 President Clinton motorcades, Panama City, Florida
Recorded September 6, 1996: Air Force One landed at Tyndall Air Force Base and the entourage motorcaded to and from there. In this video, the outgoing motorcade was recorded at the intersection of Tyndall Parkway and Business Hwy 98 in Parker. The return motorcade was recorded after dark, south of the intersection of Tyndall Parkway and Cherry Street. Later, I could see Air Force One depart from TAFB, even though my location was at least 7-miles line-of-sight from the runway. I was impressed with the angle of attack. I didn't know a 747 could climb that steeply...outta here!

199809 Hurricane Earl, Panama City, Florida
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Earl_(1998) "Hurricane Earl was an atypical, short-lived Category 2 hurricane that caused moderate damage throughout the Southeast United States. It formed out of a poorly organized tropical disturbance over the southwest Gulf of Mexico late on August 31, 1998. Tracking towards the northeast, the storm quickly intensified into a hurricane on September 2 and made landfall early the next day near Panama City, Florida."

19901009 - Paradise Lost, WaterSound, Florida
Taped in 1990, at a time it was apparent "civilization" was about to devour what had been my favorite Florida beach. Back in the 1970s we called this place Seagrove. While not accurate, it fit for lack of a better name, and Seagrove Beach was the nearest development, some 3-miles to the west. This was never a sanctioned nudist beach, contrary to what some folks thought. It's just that there usually wasn't anyone else up and down the beach as far as the eye could see, so nobody to get uptight. To me it is sad that it is now just one of many beach side developments. A playground for the wealthy who clearly don't give a damn that paradise was flattened in order for them to have their development. Kinda makes you root for hurricanes. But, they just collect insurance, subsidized by poor folks who don't moronically live on the shore, claiming it for their own, and rebuild 'bigger and better' than ever. After telling their sob stories on TV, boo hoo.

1990 Graveyard Shift at a Radio Station, Panama City, Florida
Closed Captions provided for those who aren't fluent in southern mushmouth. Recorded October 6, 1990. Behind the scenes look at a radio station more than a quarter century ago, featuring yours truly when my mustache was still brown. Yes, I sure DO mumble. This video is a bit over a year from the end of a 17-year broadcasting career, primarily in Panama City. But, including 3-year stints in Las Vegas and in the megalopolis known as Marianna, Florida. At this point in my life, I was working two full-time jobs plus overtime, sometimes putting in over 90-hours per week. I'd get off here at 6AM and begin my second job at 7:30AM, often catching some shut-eye in the parking lot of my other job before clocking in. This was part of a video letter I'd done for a buddy I used to work with at WDLP in 1975.

Psycho mockingbird (auditory time lapse)
A B O U T T H I S R E C O R D I N G : (an auditory time lapse) The original recording is a little over three hours in length. It was recorded in the wee hours of the morning, which is when this single, solitary bird (male I assume) would sit in a tree in my yard and sing until daybreak. Again I assume, my yard was his proclaimed territory and he was broadcasting that fact to the larger neighborhood of mockingbirds, which were also audible at various distances from my home. I am not a birder, so my level of expertise is like the first rung on a long ladder. Having said that, I'm impressed with the variety of calls this fellow knows. This roughly three hour recording then went to an editing process which removed almost all of the "dead air" ... quiet moments of non-singing for the bird. I also attempted removal of the occasional passing motor vehicle. However, the playback speed of the original recording is unaltered. It is not "sped up". The images were collected from various sources on the interwebs. If anyone objects to the use of any of them, please speak up and I'll remove them pronto. Thanks for listening. I hope you find the psycho mockingbird to be entertaining. ====================== L'enregistrement original est un peu plus de trois heures dans la longueur. Il a été enregistré dans les petites heures du matin, ce qui est quand ce single, oiseau solitaire (mâle je suppose) serait assis dans un arbre dans ma cour et chanter jusqu'à l'aube. Encore une fois, je suppose, ma cour était son territoire et il a été proclamé radiodiffusion qui à la plus grande quartier des moqueurs. Cet enregistrement d'environ trois heures, puis est allé à un processus d'édition qui a supprimé la quasi-totalité de la "air mort" ... moments tranquilles de non-chant pour l'oiseau. Je également tentative de retrait du passage véhicule à moteur occasionnelle. Les images ont été recueillies auprès de diverses sources sur les interwebs. Si quelqu'un fait objection à l'utilisation de l'un d'eux, s'il vous plaît prendre la parole et je vais les enlever pronto. Merci d'avoir écouté. Je l'espère, vous trouvez la moqueur psycho être divertissant. ============================== La grabación original es un poco más de tres horas de duración. Fue grabado en las primeras horas de la mañana, que es cuando este solo, pájaro solitario (masculino supongo) se sentaba en un árbol en mi patio y cantar hasta el amanecer. Nuevamente supongo, mi patio era su territorio proclamada y él transmitía que al barrio más grande de sinsontes. Esta grabación aproximadamente tres hora y luego fue a un proceso de edición que eliminó casi todo el "aire muerto" ... momentos tranquilos de no cantar para el pájaro. También intenté retirada del vehículo de motor que pasa de vez en cuando. Las imágenes se obtuvieron de diversas fuentes sobre la interwebs. Si alguien se opone a la utilización de cualquiera de ellos, por favor, hablar y voy a quitar ellos pronto. Gracias por escucharme. Espero que encuentres el sinsonte psico ser entretenido. ============================= Rekaman asli sethitik liwat telung jam ing dawa. Iki direkam ing jam wee saka esuk, kang nalika siji iki, manuk dhewekan (lanang aku nganggep) bakal njagong ing wit-witan ing yard lan sing nganti tumeka bangun raina. Maneh aku nganggep, yard ana wilayah nyatakake lan piyambakipun nyebarake sing tetanggan luwih saka mockingbirds. Iki jam rekaman kira-kira telung banjur tindak menyang proses editing kang dibusak meh kabeh "online mati" ... sepi moments saka non-singing manuk. Aku uga nyoba aman saka kendaraan motor maringaken occasional. Gambar padha diklumpukake saka macem-macem sumber ing interwebs. Yen sapa obyek kanggo nggunakake sembarang wong, please ngomongake munggah lan aku bakal mbusak mau pronto. Thanks kanggo ngrungokake. Mugi sampeyan nemokake Mockingbird psycho kanggo nglipur. =========================== Den ursprungliga inspelningen är en drygt tre timmar lång. Det spelades in på småtimmarna på morgonen, vilket är när denna enda, ensam fågel (man antar jag) skulle sitta i ett träd i min gård och sjunga tills gryningen. Återigen antar jag, min trädgård var hans proklamerade territorium och han sänder det till större stadsdelen mockingbirds. Detta ungefär tre timmars inspelning gick sedan till en redigeringsprocess som tog bort nästan alla "döda luft" ... lugna stunder av icke-sjungande för fågeln. Jag försökte också ta bort enstaka passerande motorfordon. Bilderna togs från olika källor på interwebs. Om någon motsätter sig användningen av någon av dem, tala upp och jag ska ta bort dem pronto. Tack för att du lyssna. Jag hoppas att du hittar den psyko mockingbird att vara underhållande.

20160622 United States House of Representatives Gun Control Sit-In - June 22, 2016
The 2016 United States House of Representatives sit-in began on June 22, 2016, when members of the House Democratic Caucus, led by Georgia Representative John Lewis and Massachusetts Representative Katherine Clark, and Illinois Representative Robin Kelly, declared their intention to remain on the floor of the United States House of Representatives until its Republican Speaker, Paul Ryan, allowed votes on gun control legislation in the aftermath of the June 12, 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting. The sit-in was staged by about 60 legislators. Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and Hillary Clinton showed their support via Twitter. The sit-in, which was quickly organized and caught House Republicans off-guard, resulted in the Speaker pro tempore, Dan Webster, ordering the House into recess, with the cameras which provide video coverage of the chamber's daily proceedings to news networks including C-SPAN consequently shut off. Democrats refused to leave the floor during this recess and instead gave speeches, streamed online to over a million individuals via Periscope and Facebook, demanding Congressional action to combat gun violence.

Grabe Pilot Stephen S. Oswald Mission Specialist 1 Norman E. Thagard Mission Specialist 2 William F. Readdy Mission Specialist 3 David C. Hilmers Payload Specialist 1 Roberta L. Bondar (CSA) Payload Specialist 2 Ulf Merbold (ESA) Mission description from wikipedia ... "STS-42 was launched on 22 January 1992, 9:52:33 am EST. The launch was delayed by one hour due to weather constraints. The launch weight was 243,396 pounds (110.403 Mg). Discovery carried into orbit the International Microgravity Laboratory-1 (IML-1), a pressurized manned Spacelab module, to explore in depth the complex effects of weightlessness on living organisms and materials processing. The international crew, divided into Red and Blue teams, conducted experiments on the human nervous system's adaptation to low gravity and the effects of microgravity on other life forms such as shrimp eggs, lentil seedlings, fruit fly eggs and bacteria.
