Fail Cat

Introducing Fail Cat, I don't know how FC got on top of the door and I don't have any idea what it's plan is, the strategy is destined to failure, that's obvious.

Still, there's success here, the Fail Cat provides a wonderful metaphor for human failure. So, in the future, if I refer to a fail cat, or a fail cat move, or a fail cat business model, or some such, just remember the kitty on the door, that had the gumption to see impending disaster as fortuitous opportunity and go for it.

Kung Fu Hillbilly

I guess this guy made a few appearances on the Jerry Springer Show a couple of years ago, see, this is what I miss by not watching television. So if anyone needs catching up on their kung fu training, here's your chance. Pay particular close attention to the section on the "Judy" chop, that looks like a truly devastating move.

Taylor Park

I spent a couple of days in Taylor Park over the weekend and I thought I'd share some photos.
These were taken from my campsite.

The view to the North.
The beautiful Taylor River.
And to the Northeast, these peaks are to the right of the ones in the top photo.
The day after I took these photos I got home and in the afternoon I shot the video posted below, somehow that took precedence at the time, now I wonder why.

Cold Air Funnel Over Denver, Colorado

Had some interesting weather around here today, Funnel cloud were seen above Denver and the authorities took no
chances and activated the alert systems. I shot this video and if you can listen you'll hear multiple sirens and dogs
going off.
I apologize for the poor quality of the video, I'm not the best cinematographer and while my camera shoots video,
I lose the zoom feature in that mode, you can probably still see the rotation in the funnel cloud.
