Autumn Bliss

For those of us who could use the extra help. Capricornus the Seagoat

The name Capricornus has been shortened to Carpricorn by some folks. But that is a very recent thing, like only in the last hundred years maybe. Either way, it means Seagoat. And Seagoat is the oldest known name still in use for anything in the whole sky. People have been calling these stars the Seagoat for more than 7000…

Summer Swelter

The fish gets bigger every time he tells it. Scorpius the Scorpion

In the scorpion we find lots of bright stars that make an obvious fish hook shape, especially when you ignore the claws that the Romans surgically shortened in order to make Libra. In fact some natives of the south pacific call this constellation "Maui's Hook." You see Maui is one of the gods in the lands down under. His…

Spring Thaw

With great bangs comes great responsibility. Leo the Lion

The big kitty is one of the few real connect-the-dots sort of allegories. It makes a reasonable stick figure of an animal at least. The Chinese call it the horse. It takes some imagination. If you try to connect the dots you may get something that looks like a coat hanger after it's been used to unlock a car door. That's how I drew…

Winter Beast

Did you know that the artist who made the Wall Street Bull was never paid? Taurus the Bull

Taurus is a bull, well half of a bull anyway. The front half. Actually mostly the head, with a shiny red eye. I think he’s been drinking. He’s charging Orion who appears to be perfectly prepared to defend himself from the assault. Orion also appears to have lost his pants but we don’t talk about…

Ten Commandments of Star Parties

Moving it ahead for daylight savings time was a real bitch.

  1. Shatter not the darkness at the site of observing. Man-made lights thou shalt eschew, save the faint of red.

  2. Thou shalt not illuminate thy headlights of thy automobile, nor the car door shalt thy open before the disconnecting of thy dome light. Even a match strucketh in haste is…

Rise of the Coffee Party - The Tea Party's Nemesis?

Shortly after Barack Obama was elected, a bizarre phenomenon came, seemingly out of nowhere. Suddenly the news was full of stories and images of a group of angry protesters calling themselves "The Tea Party." Although they claimed to be "populist" and "non-partisan" it should be obvious to anyone who has been following their political positions and the candidates they choose (all hard-right republicans) that they aren't "progressive" nor "populist"; and they are especially not…

Curiosity didn't kill the cat

My cat, spooky, has gone missing. He's been gone for 5 days now, and while I am quite worried he may have been hurt, or worse, killed or caught by the cat-catcher, I still hold hope that he's about, and that he will return soon. He's done this before, but never for so many days, and I suspect he may have another home out there somewhere. Damn cats and their curiosity! It never comes to any good! Whenever he goes missing, I can't help but think of the saying "Curiosity killed the…

Judgment Day party at Valhalla in Hells Kitchen NYC

Hey all, with the shadow of impending doom looming over us tomorrow, May 21, I thought I'd invite some of you heathens over to my bar for a Judgment Day/Rapture party.  This is a shameless plug, sorry if this is frowned upon, but...I own a bar called Valhalla on 54th St and 9th Avenue in Manhattan.  Lots of unintentional symbolism there, Valhalla being a mythical (maybe not?) beer hall heaven in the sky for Viking warriors, and being located in Hells Kitchen.  

 

Anyway, maybe…

Armageddon Music

I’m putting together a playlist for my rapture party on Saturday.  If you haven’t heard, Jesus is coming back on Saturday and you’re fucked.  We’re gonna party like there’s no tomorrow.  See http://wecanknow.com/ to find out how much trouble you’re in.  Anyhow, I’m open to suggestions for the playlist, but I’m trying to stay away from metal, too many obscure tunes, and too many downers.  I need some armageddon-themed tune…

..I'm not a liberal.

(But I'm thinking of starting a brand name. :)

 

I participate in more than a few news sites.  In fact, my cousin owns one of my favorites (No, I'm not telling which one.) 

I stay as publicly active on TA as possible. 

I vote in EVERY government election. 

We have come a long way.

We are quite possibly living in one of the most significant times in modern…

This is what i read every single day...

This is a copy of a letter to the editor of my local hometown paper. These are the kind of people i deal with in a daily basis.



The election is over and the American people have spoken. It is a new day, but what will…
