The convention that North is at the top on most modern maps was established by the Egyptian astronomer Ptolemy (90-168 AD) and was adopted by other cartographers.

Derek’s Daily 45s

PAT STALLINGS - EVERYBODY KNOWS

PAT STALLINGS - EVERYBODY KNOWS

Absolutely NOTHING is known about Pat Stallings, and apparently this is her only release. A real pity, as she WAILS on this red hot track from '72.

My favorite moment happens at 1:23; Pat if you're out there, drop us a line!

Arranger Wade Marcus worked with several jazz and soul artists throughout the '70's, including Stevie Wonder, The Emotions, The Blackbyrds, and The Dramatics.

from 1972...

Spotlight[Technology]: The Man's Man

In The Spotlight

A digital magazine for the "man's man". We scour the internet to find the manliest stuff around.

Who is this Man's Man??  First off, we are avid outdoorsmen.  If not in the office slaving away, you'll find us on our local rivers fly fishing, rafting, or hiking around in the mountains.  We are not professional bloggers (we actually get out into the outdoors).  That being said.....we aren't English majors either.  So please excuse any poor, grammatical hygiene. -more-

Anaconda Bus Optical Illusion

 Anaconda Bus Optical Illusion
Trompe L’oeil

You have no doubt seen cars and buses with advertising painted on them before.  But this advertisement for a local zoo on the side of a public transit bus goes above and beyond.  It is really well done and almost looks like something out of a bad horror movie.  Despite the fact that the anaconda is one of the largest snakes in the world, it would be hard to believe that one could grow to the size required to crush this bus.

LOCOMENTE  |  A Crazy mind Talking about.... its Life :) Thoughts :) Passion :) and all other blah blah blah under the Sun :)

When heaven blessed...

The Sun had set. Mother Earth was enveloped with darkness. Stars were not shining above like diamonds. Crescent Moon was hiding behind the clouds, as if playing hide and seek games with me. It was now I felt as if my vision was blurred. Then, I realized… It had started raining… Suddenly!
 
Gentle breeze was replaced by a little fiercer one. I moved a little away from the railings of the lobby in fifth floor. I closed my eyes and clutched my blue and black duppatta tight. I realized that the color of my salwar suite was no different from the bluish black evening.  As the chill breeze swayed past me, a gentle smile creaked on my face. I felt as if someone was caressing me; as if someone was pampering me.
 
The touch of breeze was very resonating. It reminded me of the loving touch of my mother… Her tender hug filled with lots of love! Suddenly, a few raindrops hit me as if was kissing me…
 
I was transported to a surreal World…A World free from worries and heartbreaks… A World where heartaches cannot be felt… I was smiling when I opened my eyes… I realized that a strange serenity had injected within me. The real World seemed pleasant as ever; as if someone had cast spell with magical wand.

BlogDogIt Note:

It seems that unhipster.net has "flown the coop." I know he was talking about a major upgrade to his site, so we will keep watching... and waiting...

Bruce Willis and the Temptations

Bruce Willis – Under The Boardwalk…

Something strangely hypnotising about Bruce Willis wearing Jerry Seinfeld’s trainers and swinging his hips. It’s like a dream you don’t want to wake up from.

Does Bruce Willis have the voice of an angel?

Did you make it all the way through this video?

Should John McClane start singing to the terrorists instead of shooting them?

Are all actors good singers and all singers good actors?

Did you find this unsettling?

February 19

Planet Buddha was sabotaged by someone last week, and we have been dislodged as a result from the usual website; we still are even as we speak, and have 0-percent search hits on Google at this time. He had taken off some of our contributors too, but we have recovered most of them except for two people. If you're one of them and see this, please know why you're not on our list, it was not the doing of the current admins.

PLANET BUDDHAhttp://www.planetbuddha.com

Connoisseur Collections and Recollections of Occult Esoterica and Fringe Noumena. The blog was started January 2011, we current have several authors who specialize in various fringe subjects. Notwithstanding its name, it is not a religious blog, though religious topics do get covered. We so far make it a policy to not discuss politics or conspiracy theories. We keep the subject matter non-mainstream (it sounds paradoxical but there is such a thing as "mainstream fringe"), i.e., we could call it "abstract fringe."         Source: Technorati

Mayan Calendar - DIY
 
Does the "Mayan Calendar" baffle you? Are you still wondering what it is and how it could possibly predict the "end of time"?

Did you know that 17 Mayan Calendars were discovered? So, what makes this particular (T'Zolkin) calendar so important? And, what does it look like?

AZTEC Calendar
This is NOT the Mayan Calendar - It's the AZTEC Calendar.
When you hear the term "Mayan Calendar" - do you see the image to the left? This image is NOT the Mayan Calendar - it's the Aztec Calendar from centuries later than the post-classic Mayan era.

I've always been of the mindset that in order to REALLY learn about something, do the research.

Below you will find a series of Links - all informative and all regarding the Mayan culture, documented writings and lessons in the Julian, Gregorian and Mayan calendar systems.

This should keep you busy until the end of time, this coming Friday 12/21/12 at 12:21pm. *snicker* Have Fun and See you on the "Flip-side".

The Mayan Codices - 4 of them spared from Spanish Conquistador and Priest destruction - each stored in a different city's museum:






It's all about Time - Yes, other people besides Gomez, Martinez and Thompson worked on the T'zolken's "end date" by determining the beginning date of 3114 BCE. The Boehm Brothers made key discoveries in the mid-20th century.
