Another Aquarium


A lot of my old animated fish animations can be found on Giphy and Best animations but they were made years ago and are pretty awful so I have not chased up for attribution . I think my latest version built with the same models but improved are a little better. If you want to use this animation feel free to do so.

Why am I putting on weight?


After all, I get enough exercise queuing outside the supermarket, keeping to the social distancing and pushing the shopping trolley around

August 18, 1969
The wrap-up, as many had left the mud swamps and headed home. But for those who remained: this.

Ghost Town - Pt. 3

Bodie Barber Shop and Saloon/Casino

A work in progress… from home. Another ghost town at the moment. This gold-rush era mining town long intrigued me.
This is what I was working on a year ago, ironically, in the very last days before the creation of another “ghost town”, G+.

Images of Bodie





A work in progress using some unexpected #stayhome time. I'm working to refurbish and update/improve the “Collection” I had been working on at the time #googleplus told us to be prepared to be obliterated like an #evilgoogle virus.

The world is now transforming, some to ghost towns and others to new realities. For the living: Stay Safe!

California Gold Rush Ghost Town - Pt.2 - Saloon, Slot Machine & Church





Bodie Church

A work in progress... from home. Another ghost town at the moment. This gold-rush era mining town long intrigued me.
This is what I was working on a year ago, ironically, in the very last days before the creation of another "ghost town", G+.

Images of Bodie


I've just begun playing - the page is a working draft thus far. But suddenly finding more #stayhome time, I've begun to reconstruct something like the "Collection" I had been working on at the time #googleplus told us to be prepared to be obliterated. Deja vu

So here's a sample. From my new ghostly vantage point - at a very safe social distance. More to come. Mind the plague. Stay Safe!

GHOST TOWN

Seems appropriate enough.... with many places in quarantine, shut down, empty... From China to Italy to WA and Times Square, N.Y.

Photo (mine) is from Bodie, California, once a thriving gold mining/stamping town during the days of the Gold Rush.
Images were part of a Google+ Collection, my last before that plague (Google) wiped out that community. :(

Old Arbat - Part 2

Six years ago yesterday, a mission to find a suitable hat in Moscow's Old Arbat...
Along the way I saw this very interesting building, which turns out to be a Georgian restaurant - Genatsvale, known for its khachapuri.

Close by is the shop we visited, with the vintage cameras (of which I posted an image) as well as hats for sale.
Here's another sample of things in the store which I did not swap for my Nikon, despite the offer. (Maybe next time?)

Borscht, Anyone?
This image of an ornately trimmed door is from exactly 6 years ago, +/- 12 hours.
Sifting through images on this laptop which I had with me, and finding a great many things I've never posted, or deemed "2nds".

Here's a door I often passed. Not the best image (as it seems to be approaching darkness and overly lit by flash or spotlight) - but it highlights this wonderful traditional art style. I liked it. It's a restaurant entry, near the gate from Revolution Square into Red Square.
I learned to enjoy piping hot borscht here. With a dollop of sour cream. (I know have some images of that too!)

I did see some traditional Russian art, including masterpieces - from giant murals and statues to metal engravings and this 19th Century fireplace, at the State Gallery, Tretyakov.

Below is the well-known master work, Ivanov's "The Apparition of Christ to the People" More information about this, along with images of other works of art at the Tretyakov, along with city sights around Moscow - all reside at my web dacha @

"You want to trade?"


Context: I took this photo exactly 6 years ago today. It's in Arbat, a section of Moscow with many shoppes and activities.
I was brought to this store for an appropriate Russian hat for February. Meanwhile the shop owner took an interest in the camera I had around my neck (which took this photo), and asked that question: Want to trade? Hmm... I liked the tchotchkes and historical figurines as well as the interesting cameras.




So, this was an "interesting" time to be in Moscow - the tail end of the Sochi Winter Olympics, with athletes returning home whom I'd see in Central Moscow doing quick sightseeing between flights. I gave some talks to interesting audiences in interesting places, and then.... the newspaper and local news described a warning by Ukraine to "back off" or else, and soldiers in Red Square to keep things calm, and the U.S. ambassador left the embassy, the day I gave a talk there. (No, not because of me! Just some odd timing!)




And that's my anniversary memories of Feb 2020.... and that day 6 years ago in search of a warm(er) hat, suitable for Moscow's cold.

These photos were part of a large collection on Google+. Many more mages of Moscow, from street scenes to an art museum, to Red Square and St. Basils Cathedral, now in my own Google-proof collection @ http://www.fenichel.com/moscow

Pictures of Lily

.... &/or Picture of Lilies


Have others heard this song sometime this past week or two?
For some reason I had it playing onboard (internal head drive), and two people mentioned the song in passing.
Is it in a movie trailer? Advert? Cosmic rays? Anyway... an oldie but goldie.

Photo is mine, once in a G-plus collection from Denver Botanic Gardens. At the Monet Pond, actually.

John Lennon: Nobody Loves You (when you're down and out) - Acoustic/Solo )

Here is take # 9 ("a favorite number") of a studio demo with just Lennon & his acoustic guitar. Clean and soulful.

While I'm at it, and "here"... Here's something with many great songs which is relocated intact (?) from the old world.
With some help from friends on Google+ I put together a collection of #9 themed songs - Beethoven, Beatles, lots between.
I found it now, through some time/space warp @ https://diaspora.flidais.net/posts/8a7de3b00d3c0137d113005056264835

LYRICS
Nobody loves you when you're down and out
Nobody sees you when you're on cloud nine
Everybody's hustling for a buck and a dime
I'll scratch your back and you scratch mine

I've been across to the other side
I've shown you everything, I got nothing to hide
And still you ask me, "do I love you?"
What it is, what it is
All I can tell you is, it's all show biz
All I can tell you is, it's all show biz

What it is, what it is, what it is, what it...

Nobody loves you when you're down and out
Nobody knows you when you're on cloud nine
Everybody's hustling for a buck and a dime
I'll scratch your back and you knife mine

I've been across the water now so many times
I've seen the one eyed witchdoctor leading the blind
And still you ask me, "do I love you?"
What you say, what you say
Everytime I put my finger on it, it slips away
Everytime I put my finger on it, it slips away
What you say, what you say, what you say, what you say

Well I get up in the morning and I'm looking in the mirror to see
Ooo wee!
Then I'm lying in the darkness and I know I can't get to sleep
Ooo wee!
1-2-3-4
Nobody loves you when you're old and grey
Nobody needs you when you're upside down
Everybody's hollering about their own birthday
Everybody loves you when you're six foot in the ground

(whistling past the graveyard)
:(
He'd be turning 80 in 2020.

Mucha on my Mind


Description (from MuchaFoundation.org)
"Stained-glass Window designed by Mucha at St. Vitus Cathedral, Prague (Early 1930s)
Coinciding with the Millennium Jubilee of the Czech patron saint St. Wenceslas (Duke of Bohemia), the Gothic reconstruction work for St. Vitas Cathedral in Prague was completed in 1929. The new stained glass window, designed by Mucha, was installed in the north nave in 1931.

The window portrays the boy St. Wenceslas with his grandmother St. Ludmila in the centre, surrounded by episodes from the lives of Saints Cyril and Methodius who spread Christianity among the Slavs. The image of Slavia is also included below Christ, and as an emblem of Slavia Bank who funded the stained glass window." The 'signature' of Alphonse Mucha is on in the bottom center panes.




Many more images of Prague's churches, orloj, Gothic and Czech-Renaissance Art, Castle, Mala-Strana and more, at:

Thinking of Kaua'i






Feeling bad about the helicopter crash in Kaua'i (Hawaiian Island, home of the majestic cliffs (pali), rain forests and ... Jurassic Park.
The lost helicopter was owned by Safari, whose advertising proudly claims "perfect safety record" for 25 years. I took these photos from one of their 'copters - no other way to see the interior of the island. Sad reminder of the majesty and dangers of nature & Pele.

Stream, stream, "Stream".... OK, my stream of pora* consciousness has me considering "life in the Fediverse" vs. other online worlds. My context/perspective is from having been forced to flee a doomed and then exterminated Google+.

In this world and week it has been a very rapid change from summer to cold and several important holidays very close together.
Now "home for the holidays", only days to deal with gifts and bills and biz and family and 2020 and so many of these .....

Things


THINGS - Joe Walsh

I like to take things one step at a time
One foot in front of the other
I like to think things will all work out fine
And follow along behind those
One act play-things can give you a thrill
Guess it depends on the actor
Dreams can come true, but some things never will
As a matter of fact, those things are driving me crazy

Those things are keeping me sane
I like to take things and make a design
Keep a low profile. Oh and
I like to take things and put them to rhyme
Like those things that are confusing
And the things that seem so clear
And the things that seem so far away
And yet they seem so near
There are some things I have lost
And a few things I have found
Well it's so hard to keep track of things
There's so many around
There's so many around


And there's things we have to look for
And a few we never find
And we all have things in common
You got your thing, I've got mine
And some things they just happen
And some things you can plan
And some of those things you just can't help
But some of them you can
Oh, some of them you can
As a matter of fact, those things
Are driving me crazy
Those things are keeping me sane

Some things turn out all wrong
And some things turn out all right
Some things don't turn out at all
But then again they might
There are things that come too soon
And some things that come too late
It's the best thing to come too early
So you have some time to wait
Oh, have some time to wait
Well it's hard to talk with words
There's some things you just can't say
And it's best to leave some things alone
In case they go away
You can share some things with friends
There's some things we've all been thru'
Well it's things like this and things like that
And how are things with you?
Oh, how do you do?
You can hang things on your wall
You can leave your things around
You can mark some things 2001, and put them in the ground
And maybe later on, they will dig them up some day
And ooh and ahh, and 'how 'bout that?'
Who knows the things they'll say

Here's a great example. Not only the song I was looking for, but an album section, so pure and such a great sample. Enjoy.

MOODY BLUES: "In The Beginning"- "Lovely To See You"- "Dear Diary"- w/Lyrics


In the Beginning

I think, I think I am, therefore I am, I think.
[Establishment:] Of course you are my bright little star,
I've miles
And miles
Of files
Pretty files of your forefather's fruit
And now to suit our
Great computer,
You're magnetic ink.

[Inner Man:] I'm more than that, I know I am, at least, I think I must be.


It riles them to believe that you perceive the web they weave.
And keep on thinking free...

Lovely to See You
Lovely to see you again my friend
Walk along with me to the next bend.....

...

Dear Diary,

It's over, will tomorrow be the same?
I know that they're really not to blame
If they weren't so blind then surely they'd see
There's a much better way for them to be
Inside me, yours truly, dear Diary

Money for nothing..... "I want my MTV!"

Money for Nothing - Dire Straits


LYRICS
Now look at them yo-yo's, that's the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Money for nothin' and your chicks for free
Now that ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Lemme tell ya, them guys ain't dumb
Maybe get a blister on your little finger
Maybe get a blister on your thumb
We got to install microwave ovens, custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators, we gotta move these color TV's
See the little faggot with the earring and the make up
Yeah buddy that's his own hair
That little faggot got his own jet airplane
That little faggot he's a millionaire
We got to install microwave ovens, custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators, we gotta move these color TV's
We got to install microwave ovens, custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators, we gotta move these color TV's
I shoulda learned to play the guitar
I shoulda learned to play them drums
Look at that mama she got it stickin' in the camera man
We could have some-
And he's up there, what's that?
Hawaiian noises?
Bangin' on the bongos like a chimpanzee
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Get your money for nothin', get your chicks for free
We got to install microwave ovens, custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators, we gotta move these color TV's
Listen here
Now that ain't workin' that's the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV
That ain't workin', that's the way you do it
Money for nothin' and chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' get your chicks for free
Money for nothin' and the chicks for free
Money for nothin' and the chicks for free
Look at that, look at that
Money for nothin' chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
Money for nothin' chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
Money for nothin' chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
Money for nothin' chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
Easy, easy money for nothin' (I want my, I want my MTV)
Easy, easy chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)

Dazed and Confused - Jimmy Page and his "Dragon" Guitar

Winner (guessed whose this was): @tomgrz :))

This is the Telecaster (1959; hand-painted by Jimmy Page, 1967)
Catalog Notes: Ash body, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, two single-coil pickups.

"Jimmy Page received this guitar from Jeff Beck and used it for his 1967 work with the Yardbirds, playing it with a violin bow on experimental live versions of 'Dazed and Confused'. After the Yardbirds disbanded, he used it to record all of Led Zeppelin (1968)"

Here's a classic concert clip where you can see & hear it in use:

Timely, i-Ching pull from a rescued "tape"..... and a great album probably little known. Sting, ripe and pithy. Lyrics below.

We Work The Black Seam | Sting

LYRICS

This place has changed for good
Your economic theory said it would
It's hard for us to understand
We can't give up our jobs the way we should

Our blood has stained the coal
We tunneled deep inside the nation's soul
We matter more than pounds and pence
Your economic theory makes no sense

One day in a nuclear age
They may understand our rage
They build machines that they can't control
And bury the waste in a great big hole
Power was to become cheap and clean
Grimy faces were never seen
But deadly for twelve thousand years is carbon fourteen
We work the black seam together

The seam lies underground
Three million years of pressure packed it down
We walk through ancient forest lands
And light a thousand cities with our hands

Your dark satanic mills
Have made redundant all our mining skills
You can't exchange a six inch band
For all the poisoned streams in Cumberland

One day in a nuclear age
They may understand our rage
They build machines that they can't control
And bury the waste in a great big hole
Power was to become cheap and clean
Grimy faces were never seen
But deadly for twelve thousand years is carbon fourteen
We work the black seam together

Our conscious lives run deep
You cling onto your mountain while we sleep
This way of life is part of me
The is no price so only let me be

And should the children weep
The turning world will sing their souls to sleep
When you have sunk without a trace
The universe will suck me into place

One day in a nuclear age
They may understand our rage
They build machines that they can't control
And bury the waste in a great big hole
Power was to become cheap and clean
Grimy faces were never seen
But deadly for twelve thousand years is carbon fourteen
We work the black seam together

2 Fly-by Aircraft

Hawai'ian Islands


Both of the planes above are in the Hawai'ian Islands, among many military aircraft of all types, plus the carriers (think: Pearl Harbor)

So image # 1 (or two) is a huge Lockheed C-5 Galaxy transport plane (the biggest still, maybe), lumbering over our tiny "puddle jumper" Cessna over the pacific, our tiny plane crossing the channel to Moloka'i.

Image # 2 (or 1 - YMMV) is a ?? . Not the ideal shot (un-cropped here) but it was the view I had standing by a waterfall (in Hilo) and being shaken by the sound of this. I don't know what it is, but... it definitely has propellers!

More images from many of the Hawai'ian islands, from the Moloka'i peninsula to the Volcanos of Kilauea and Mt. Haleakala, plus my own music video of Moloka'i featuring locally made music, flowers, and sunsets - no more fly-bys, @ www.fenichel.com/hawaii2.shtml







Haleakala Silversword, endemic to the very top of Mt. Haleakala Volcano, at 10,023 feet (3,055 meters) above sea level.

Bethesda Fountain # 2 (Central Park)


One more look - from a longer/wider perspective - at Bethesda Fountain in its entirety, with people sitting, selfie-ing, etc. As you can see, as of mid-October, the trees are just getting tinged with yellow, later each year in fully changing colors (peaking) so it seems.

This is the view, atop Bethesda Terrace, or on the fountain level, walking down the stairs which are atop a very elegant arcade, where performers are often found (and wedding photographers). The stairs themselves are fascinating, with carvings depicting the "early birds" of the park on the eastern (sunrise) side of the stairs, while the western side features daytime and evening creatures.

Off to the right the Boathouse (restaurant) and rowboat rentals. Behind the trees, to the left here, is the larger expanse of pond and Bow Bridge. Nearby also, Imagine (the mosaic), the Bandshell, and Strawberry Fields.

You can see more images of autumn (in full fury) and Bow Bridge at

Central Park Boathouse - Revisited October 2019


This is more of a little gazebo (the big "clubhouse" is where one rents the rowboats). I took a photo of a couple and their rowboat, stopped at this exact spot, many years ago. That became a book cover! I re-visited this favorite spot a few years ago in the height of autumn and you what that looks like here .. with a link to the original photo as well, and to many more photos of Central Park.

"Donut Taste Good"

Well, it's a different type of donut than Dunkin or Tastee Creme! More like whole wheat, simple, no frostings or anything. But warm.
At 14,110 feet elevation (4300m) it is a challenge to leaven dough!

Sadly, my "Colorado" collection on G+ was exterminated by #evilgoogle. With Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, Manitou, etc.

I have yet to replicate that collection "here" or on my own site, but a few samples are on flickr.

And here is a chunk of my Google posts, still available (to me at least, and probably anyone with access to Photos, or anyone at all).

Hidden


How many hidden creatures can you find? Here is a hint: Look for a beak, and a pair of yellow eyes - not in the same place.

More from the rivers, swamps, and marshes of the Gulf Coast and Central Florida, 'here' in albums, and @ http://www.fenichel.com/florida2.shtml

Money for nothing..... "I want my MTV!"

Money for Nothing - Dire Straits


LYRICS
Now look at them yo-yo's, that's the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Money for nothin' and your chicks for free
Now that ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Lemme tell ya, them guys ain't dumb
Maybe get a blister on your little finger
Maybe get a blister on your thumb
We got to install microwave ovens, custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators, we gotta move these color TV's
See the little faggot with the earring and the make up
Yeah buddy that's his own hair
That little faggot got his own jet airplane
That little faggot he's a millionaire
We got to install microwave ovens, custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators, we gotta move these color TV's
We got to install microwave ovens, custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators, we gotta move these color TV's
I shoulda learned to play the guitar
I shoulda learned to play them drums
Look at that mama she got it stickin' in the camera man
We could have some-
And he's up there, what's that?
Hawaiian noises?
Bangin' on the bongos like a chimpanzee
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Get your money for nothin', get your chicks for free
We got to install microwave ovens, custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators, we gotta move these color TV's
Listen here
Now that ain't workin' that's the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV
That ain't workin', that's the way you do it
Money for nothin' and chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' get your chicks for free
Money for nothin' and the chicks for free
Money for nothin' and the chicks for free
Look at that, look at that
Money for nothin' chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
Money for nothin' chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
Money for nothin' chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
Money for nothin' chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
Easy, easy money for nothin' (I want my, I want my MTV)
Easy, easy chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
Easy, easy money for nothin' (I want my, I want my MTV)
Chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
That ain't workin'
Money for nothing, chicks for free
Money for nothing, chicks for free

Autumn? Not so much yet, in NYC.
91℉ and still not much color among the mostly-all-green trees.
A last "summer day" in Central Park. (Unofficial)
