Choice Women Of Music Week Day 3 - Stevie


I never liked the bird in this album cover. It is a Cockatoo?  Excuse me...?  Cockatoo?  Nah that just doesn't seem to fit the Stevie Wild Heart image. Faerie light, a snow bird, a vortex of white and blue neon? A silver dragon fairy Or the fucking MOON? 

This is probably how it went down: 
The photographer after having snorted his bullet for the 20th time looks over the scene and says,  "Hey something is missing the picture needs more....We tried the rose in teeth stomping your boots when holding the tambourine while spinning...let's just put that down..oh wait- yea stack them up -YES that is good right there next to Ms Nicks...but still something is missing?"  Stevie adds, "Maybe..a white winged dove sings a song sounds like she's singing Whoo baby Whoo".  Prop man digging in prop box quickly pulls out a white feathery stuffed COCKATOO.  The photographer is staring off in a glaze thinking that Ms. Nicks could put crap on her head and spin around saying "Dookie Dookie" and make a million...then noticing his bullet is empty snaps out of his daydream, "Let's wrap this up, Cockatoo it is"!

Stevie is 62 yrs old. She is looking still so magically beautiful.

Choice Women Of Music Week Day 2 - Patti



Digital Art-Photomanipulation

Patti Smith has been called "The GodMother Of Punk" and is now in the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame since Nov. 2010.  Because of this, I was compelled to do her right away and drawing up a Guadalupe frame.
The photo was taken by Annie Liebovitz of Rolling Stone Magazine fame.

I really love Claude Monet, so it is really hard to blaspheme. 
Because of this, I did two just to be bad.

List of Celebrities Who Had Genomes Sequenced

While crawling in The Virtual Dumpster I call the internet:

You're No Different by Ozzy Osbourne from YouTube

I was checking out my facegook news feed and Io9 magazine has an article in it about the Orangutan Genome discoveries.  Orangutan genome has not changed for 15 million years.  This is in comparison with human and chimpanzee have experienced large-scale structural rearrangements of their genome that may have accelerated their evolution blah blah blah...I will spare you. Not everyone likes to read this stuff.

I like a good science news article, me thinks. Then me thinks...back in October Scientific American had an article about Ozzy Osbourne's genome.  It was the top science article of the day


When I Googled "What famous people have had their genome sequenced?" = About 108,000 results (0.18 seconds)



And they just didn't have a list...I had to dig around.
Sequencing is a million dollar process on just one subject!  There is a big push to make Genomics more affordable. There is the project called The X prize.  [source]
Of course and in addition, finding specifics in genomes of people to fight diseases within will be advantageous.  The video to the X Prize in Genomics is almost scifi-ish and is included in the above link.  .




You would think that the sequencers of genetic material would have some organization!  I had to go to a bunch of different articles and weed them out!  I will update this as I find them.  
I titled my blog so that the next curious layman can see an actual list upon searching The Virtual Dumpster I call the Internet!
 

This is it THE LIST:
Ozzy Osbourne
Larry King
Glen Close 
Steven Hawking
Paul Allen Microsoft co-founder Of Microsoft
Craig Venter American Biologist
James Watson  co-discoverer of DNA
Desmond Tutu Archbishop
Sitting Bull Lakota Chief
Inuk the Ice Man from Greenland
Esther Dyson Swedish notable techie entrepreneur
Steven Quake Engineer who designed a cheaper test...
Hermann Hauser entrepreneur
Marjolein Kriek Dutch clinical geneticist
George Church Harvard molecular geneticist.

SNPedia has a compiled list of 55 public genomes listed with some minimal summary. [link]

There has got to be more...maybe they aren't telling.


Another thing I dug up:
"The Human Genome Project (HGP) refers to the international 13-year effort, formally begun in October 1990 and completed in 2003, to discover all the estimated 20,000-25,000 human genes and make them accessible for further biological study". [source]

There are of course big time problems with what is now labeled  ELSI (Ethical, Legal and Social Issues)
Their FAQ page has all the questions you might wonder when it comes to genomes...[link here]
 The government...answering your questions.


Summary of my crawling the Virtual Dumpster on this topic is:
Genomic studies should be of everyone's interest.  They are taking pieces of our literal human code and trying to find out how it ticks.  With any theological beliefs aside, you must be interested!  Although what they are finding out is still in the baby stages...It is a tremendous undertaking that will be scientifically revealed possibly in future generations!

If it were up to me, I would of been one of those hocus pocus believers: I would of said in the past,
"Yeah I know that maggots come from rotting meat.  You guys are so fucking smart!  Cool name Spontaneous Generation!  And it looks better after I ate a bunch of those funny berries"!

They are actually looking for volunteers for genome study in one of the websites I traveled to.
[Personal Genome Project looking for next wave of volunteers Link]


The total genetic difference between humans and chimps, in terms of number of bases, sums to about 4% of the genome.

(Evolution Vs. Creation Chart below raised my brow as I dug it out of the virtual dumpster...)

Here is a chart that comes from a 2010 Gallup Poll on belief systems and percentages:

I really think that when Hasselhoff's (The Hoff's) daughter posted his drunk video on YouTube, she was in the wrong.  I guess we can all put each other in check and threaten to post it on YouTube or Facebook.
I tease my grand daughter when she acts up, that I need to find my camera and take that picture and post it to UglyBadKids.com.

I Googled Anachronism just to keep to my theme line.

Amanda could just fart accompany a song and still come out a winner and possibly coherent with a thing she would do.

Amanda's latest album is free streamed in it's entirety on her blog  "Amanda Palmer Goes Down Under"

Some Trash Is Other's Treasure!



While crawling in The Virtual Dumpster I call the Internet:

Found another BlogWorthy Barbie!


[Source Link: OOAK Barbies
Last September, I did a post on Altered Barbies. My "Barbie-The Undead and more.." is my second most viewed.  "Robbing Banksy" is my top viewed post. My hit count went from 38 in early September to 2052 right now.  Amazing!  Yet these are only due to the images.

It is no big deal that I don't have a dedicated following who comment.  I blog selfishly to please myself and to put an electronic imprint of my bizarro on the world wide web.  But let me retype...I actually get stoked when someone comments, and thank you very much!

I pride myself that my blog is animated, colorful and has sound!  I keep it to an urban theme based on the Dumpster concept.  I feel it is unique in it's design.

If you go to the Barbie source check out some that are selling for $350 bucks!






 Who know's? If you ever watched Battlestar Galactica or Caprica, they could compile my electronic imprint and make an avatar for the virtual world . This avatar could be downloaded to a Cylon!  Later they could design a flesh job Cylon that does not gain weight or age. I could still blog from the deck of the yacht of some human fool who adores me, feeding me grapes in the sun.


Narcissus by Caravaggio 1599 manipulated using GIMP 
added to "Profane The Arts Project" 
Madeline Woe 2011.

From Ovid's Story of Echo and Narcissus [link]

"No mountains rise, nor oceans flow between.
A shallow water hinders my embrace;
And yet the lovely mimick wears a face
That kindly smiles, and when I bend to join
My lips to his, he fondly bends to mine.
Hear, gentle youth, and pity my complaint,
Come from thy well, thou fair inhabitant.
My charms an easy conquest have obtain'd
O'er other hearts, by thee alone disdain'd.
But why should I despair? I'm sure he burns
With equal flames, and languishes by turns.
When-e'er I stoop, he offers at a kiss,
And when my arms I stretch, he stretches his.
His eye with pleasure on my face he keeps,
He smiles my smiles, and when I weep he weeps.
When e'er I speak, his moving lips appear
To utter something, which I cannot hear".


Actually my favorite of Salvadore Dali is "Metamorphosis"
 
"To the cold shades his flitting ghost retires,
And in the Stygian waves it self admires.
For him the Naiads and the Dryads mourn,
Whom the sad Echo answers in her turn;
And now the sister-nymphs prepare his urn:
When, looking for his corps, they only found
A rising stalk, with yellow blossoms crown'd".

A Dumpster treasure:  "Rosebud's Moon Links" 
Do you know what all the moon names are?  Are you curious?
[Link Here]


Well 3% of the Full moon is already gone.  If you didn't know, the last Full Moon was NOT a Blue Moon.

If you are planning to know when the next Blue Moon will come around...there are two definitions on what a Blue Moon is. 
-When there are two full moons in one month, the second Moon is called a Blue Moon.
-The third full moon in a season of 4 full moons is also called a Blue Moon (old way).
The second definition is a never ending dumpster dive of trying to get the date, so I found pictures and a calendar with the moons phases on it.  And counted the third Full moon from this latest Winter Solstice.  Well, that was too much work for me, but I did it. Here are the links so you can do it, too. 
(What fucking fun! I could use one of those Blue Moon Beers, now)!

The Beauty Of Trash

 (Instant Karma hit me. I was bragging about how when I get sick I don't take antibiotics. Well, last night, my head just felt all swelled up and my throat was sore and I could not swallow without pain. After tylenol, chloraseptic and sleeping most of the day.  I can swallow now. And I get to eat ice cream with out guilt).

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average American produces about 4.4 pounds (2 kg) of garbage a day, or a total of 29 pounds (13 kg) per week and 1,600 pounds (726 kg) a year. This only takes into consideration the average household member and does not count industrial waste or commercial trash. If this sounds like a staggering number, you would be surprised to know that Americans are not the number one producers of garbage in the world. In Mexico, the average household produces 30 percent more garbage than in America.

While the numbers may be difficult to grasp, consider this: with the garbage produced in America alone, you could form a line of filled-up garbage trucks and reach the moon. Or cover the state of Texas two and a half times. Or bury more than 990,000 football fields under six-foot high (1.8 meter high) piles of waste. According to WM Recycle America, LLC, Americans alone throw away enough aluminum to duplicate the full commercial air fleet of the US


With all this build up, there are some ingenious people who see it as a venue of expression.

The best program I ever found in the Dumpster!




post edit February 2011
DUE TO RECENT RESEARCH ON WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO BUST PEOPLE WHO PREACH COPYING IS OK:  i deleted this post.
I am just a grandma is bored blog. I don't want any trouble with big brother. I use the free stuff online because I am not a consumer I am a survivor. If it were not available here, I would not buy it. I would listen to radio and watch TV and rent a redbox now and then...I would probably get out more, too.
Can you imagine the shut ins and handicapped people who benefit from being able to access things online?  Well I am neither of the latter, but it is inviting to see streams of new movies and listen to all the songs the order I want them in from time to time.


The MP3 format is not illegal, because it just a way to compress numerical data. On the other hand, its use may be illegal. MP3s must comply with copyrights: you can make a copy (backup) of a song for which you have the original. Thus, if you download an MP3 you may not keep it more than 24 hours if you don't have the original.
However, there are many free-distribution MP3 files. This allows lesser-known groups to distribute their work at a lower cost, and is a great way to discover new talent at a lower price.
It may also be very practical to burn an audio CD from these files. This may be read on any CD player or car radio with a CD player... [read more about MP3 format and audio CD's here]
On June 23, 2010, Judge Louis Stanton ruled in Google's favor in a motion for summary judgment, holding that Google was protected by provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, notwithstanding evidence of intentional copyright infringement.  
Viacom announced its intention to appeal the ruling.
[from wikipedia] The links to DMC act works.


I REMEMBER BACK IN THE DAY WHEN I WOULD USE MY DAD'S RECORDING EQUIPMENT AND MAKE TAPES OF MUSIC OFF THE RADIO. WITH ALLOWANCE BEING SO SMALL AND REALLY I HAD NO MEANS TO GET AROUND AND GO BUY A RECORD OR A RECORD PLAYER TO PLAY IT,...

WHO SAYS THAT KIDS THAT DO IT NOW ARE CRIMINALS? THEY ARE DESPERATE AND WANT TO LISTEN TO TUNE IN THE ORDER THEY WANT TO IF THEY WANT TO, BUT ARE CONTENT WITH THE FREE RADIO AS WELL.

BUT WHAT HAS INTERNET BECOME? A BAITING GROUND FOR YOUTH TO GET IN TROUBLE.  YOU WANT TO PUT A SONG ON YOUR MP3 BUT YOU ARE LUCKY YOU GET YOUR WARDROBE AND SHOES RENEWED BUT EVERY SCHOOL YEAR AND MAYBE CHRISTMAS....DAMN AT LEAST HEARING YOUR FAVORITE MUSIC IS FREE ONLINE, AND IF YOU WANT TO TAKE IT AND PUT IT ON YOUR MP3 AND RIDE YOUR BIKE WITH IT...YOU ARE NOT A CRIMINAL...YOU ARE A HAPPY BROKE YOUTH!  MAYBE GO TO 7-11 TO CELEBRATE WITH A FRIEND AND SHARE A BIG GULP!

Music Only From YouTube video By Changing The HTML

Not much of a post...just on a veg mode watching streams tv episodes and  ran a test for music FX. It worked! 
If you like the song, but the video sucks and you want it for FX to your pics and blog you can edit the HTML as done below:



The song is the theme song to the TV show I have been streaming.  It came out in 1996 and ran until 2000.  I only saw 2 episodes, maybe.  It ran four seasons.

On Season 2.5 so far....
Do you know the name of the show?

Oh My Stars!




What I like about being over 50 is that when I have a veggie sort of day, I can look like the sea hag and my adult kids accept it as I am old. LOL I then further accept it by wearing my ugly pink crocs shorts possibly a tad unshaven legs and a baggy T shirt no bra and my hair is a mess.  Oh and I might stink a bit. Not even showering today.  

I had a health issue yesterday and decided to relax. It is my day off from watching my gbabies. I am catching up on tv series I missed in the past. I had a playlist already for today.









My daughter wakes me up and says, "Mom, you got to get on the internet.  Amanda is freaking out.  It is her birthday and she found out the whole fucking zodiac changed because the Earth shifted or something."  I am in a grog and I instantly think sci fi movie?  Huh? What a way to wake up!  I tell her, yeah I doubt it is a big change maybe if she is born at the beginning or end of the sign date-a cusp child.


Well I was wrong!
In fact yea Amanda is now a Sagittarius.  I am an Ophiuchus. And I had no idea how to pronounce it.  Apparently in the Virtual Dumpster I call the internet, there is a place for me to crawl.


Google Search- Ophiuchus pronounce you get - About 92,200 results
(0.24 seconds) 
Well that is well enough resources to fix this problem!
Ophiuchus - off-ih-YOU-kuss
Huh? So I get this video below and watch the story.  She says it three times and it is more like
off ee YOU kuss.  Well now that is dandy.

Hope this didn't fuck up your cool tattoo! My kids had matching intertwined signs.
Now the Scorpio is a Sag....
The glyph is cool, but the art is not much available in Google searching standards 
About 38,200 results (0.45 seconds) . 
Since my name is Susan...and I see the S in there...
I amuse myself with the zodiac, but
I am not a fanatic about it.  My mom, sister and one of  my daughters are mad.


I think that maybe learning to channel my artistic wants and abilities into making a better looking (I have to think on how it is spelled before I type) Ophiuchus! 

Oh people are gonna be pissed about this, but this is the astrologically correct way of interpreting your sign as I see it:

"What constellation or sign were you born under"?

So you are the sun sign that was originally assigned to you because you were born under that sign.  

This new zodiac would affect the younger not yet tattoo'd youth. 

So chill!  Your cool tattoo has not lost it's meaning.


And with out taking anymore of your time, I will be off finding my self at a place that I got when I google searched "best syndicated horoscope"

Edit Jan. 15th-
Astro Dienst at Astro.com makes a chart with info you give them.  It is based on the stars etc WHEN you were born and WHERE and WHAT TME.  Check your birth certificate if you don't know the time.
Astrologers are not including Ophiuchus in any of the searched horoscopes.
The world is in a stasis of denial.  Then again, it would be logical to assume that all the robot software that predicted the below, now needs to be upgraded?  Stimulus to the economy via the stars!  More work for Astrologers and programmers!


Another one site I found an Ophiuchus daily horoscope:

You are trying to escape the routine, dull, and ordinary aspects of your life. You try to find new things that will make your life more exciting and stimulating. But with every effort of this kind, circumstances, duties, and obligations seem to hold you back and keep you stuck in an oppressive situation. You may get to a point where the pressure is unbearable, and then you will make a sudden break for freedom. You may suddenly leave a relationship, an oppressive job, or your place of residence, without warning anyone. 

Ophiuchus's beware! LOL

Here is my version:

You are feeling caged in by the cold of winter and financial circumstance due to the holidays.  You have become stagnant and bored and possibly bloated from too much yuletide feasting. Go out Ophiuchus's and embrace the winter wonderland. You have concealed secret plans on building the ultimate snow fort using cardboard boxes as forms and waiting for just the right amount of snow to do so.  It might be cold, but shoveling and the flame from your cigarette lighter when taking breaks should keep you warm.  Go Ophiuchus and build that snow castle and keep that coffee pot a brewing!
