The stars are mocking me! Last night I stayed up for the meteor showers. I saw one every couple minutes, but I could not predict where they would be. I took several 10 minute exposures, but where I would aim, the stars would not be. With the amount of amient light in the area 10 minute exposures (f5.6, iso100) came out looking almost like day light. While I was unable to get any meteor's, I did get a couple good shots, which I will later edit to remove the noise and darken so it looks like night. But here are the pre-edit images.



Star trails over our house. This was taken right at midnight. Look at how bright that sky is!!!

The images, when viewed at full resolution, look far nicer, as you can see a lot more of the fainter stars and it gives you more of a sense of motion.

This quiz has me thinking, when I get old and crotchity, and finally kick the bucket, I would love a New Orlean's style jazz wake. But then I was thinking I would really prefer to be there for it. Anyone else agree with me on this one? I mean, what the point of having a party if you can't boogie down at it. If you agree with me on this, let me know. I think it would be fun to have a huge faux wake party. Maybe right before or on Halloween, and then all of the "deceased" can have a faux zombie ritual at the end and can be zombies for the rest of the evening. Sounds like fun to me. Come get zombified with me!!! :-)

It's angsty, whiny, mopey, and cheesy, but I like it. I just got the new Telepopmusik cd, Angel Milk, and like their earlier cd it is nice dreamy lazy summer afternoon music for just sitting back a chilling. Though I suspect one of the band members must have had a major break up mid-recording process as most of the songs are about breaking up or new romance. Anyway, I suspect it will make good angsty mix cd fodder.

Also, after listenning to their interview on NPR and the songs they played I had to order The Brazil Girls cd. A yummy mix of world music and trip-hop.

My music tastes all of a sudden have me wishing for a UV reactive fun fur lined chill room with many soft couchs and cushions. Is that a bad thing? I think not!
