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-

These handlebars are handcrafted from 4 mm plied oak that has been oil treated for weather protection. Durable, light, and pretty damn good looking.

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.

The Sanford Family Misfit

The Misfit
I am a Southern born and bred mother of two who is always looking for new ways to keep herself busy. I am a bartender who is hoping to graduate from college – sometime in the next hundred years. I’d like to graduate with a double bachelor’s in creative writing and history and maybe take history all the way to a PhD. During my down time I am usually parked in front of the computer doing research or writing new blog posts. [ continue... ]

About The Sanford Family Misfit

Welcome to The Sanford Family Misfit – A blog dedicated to spreading the culture, heritage, and history of my continuously growing family!

My name is Cassie Sanford Clark and I’m a family historian.  You can read more about me on the About the Misfit page – but I wanted to take a moment to explain what The Sanford Family Misfit is all about and how it came to be.

Claude Johnsons Sanford Claude Sanford – WWII

In 2004 the biggest change of my adult life occurred when I lost my papaw, my lifetime hero, to cancer.  Losing Papaw left a huge void in my life and suddenly I felt completely disconnected.  In an effort to deal with his death and make myself feel connected to him once more I started looking for things of his that I could physically hold on to.  My passion for collecting physical memorabilia of my papaw’s led me to census records, his birth certificate, his CCC records, and compelled me to compile family stories about his life.  Once I had located everything of his that I could – I moved on to the rest of his family and then the rest of my family.

Some of the lines that I have researched have been relatively easy to track down.  Others before me had taken an interest in those lines and were more than willing to share the information that they had.  My other lines were not as easy.  Those lines have no books written about them, websites dedicated to them, and only a hand full of forums that have knowledgeable researchers who are willing to share their data.  My frustration mounted as I stumbled through tracking my ancestors down.  It was this frustration that fueled my stubborn desire to find every thing I could about my ancestors in spite of the lack of information floating around out there.

Mills House Mills House – Delco, NC

During my journey of tracking down records, hunting down photos, locating living relatives, stomping through over grown cemeteries, and getting lost on back roads while trying to find falling down houses – there were numerous times I wished that someone was out there who could help me.  I found myself wishing that there was a place I could go that held all of this information for me or at least a place I could go that would tell me where to look.  After I spent years tracking down all of my treasures…  I decided that it was time to create a place that made it a little easier for those who would walk down the road behind me.  I wanted this place to be full of personality, full of stories, research notes, pictures, history, and highlight the unique heritage that my family shares.  It was this decision that led me to create The Sanford Family Misfit.  [smiley::)]
