This town is like an animal curled up at our feet
It’s full of intangibles and friends I’ve yet to meet
From up here on the canyon, all the cars
On the freeway, through the city, flow like veins of stars

Ghost Beach puts on a great show, filling the room with high energy and awesome sound throughout. Amongst the toe taps and clapping I found time to capture cell phone video of Close Enough, the last song of their set. 

A halo around the sun this afternoon, high above my back yard.

Tonight’s a great night to look up. Starting at 2AM EDT and peaking from 3am to 4:30, there will be a lunar eclipse visible from all of North America. To make things better, Mars is currently very close to Earth, making it the brightest object in the night sky. 

If you’re lucky enough to be viewing tonight’s events from Central Florida, Space-X will be launching a Dragon 9 capsule to the ISS at 4:58PM EDT - adding a little extra something to the sky.

See you in the stars.

I walk in the room and see you waltzing around
The love that you give is such a familiar sound
You just fly straight up and calm the fuck down
You see a house fall because you built it on the wrong ground

If you’re looking for a narrative behind the Pet Shop Boys’ Coachella performance I think the answer is LSD.

When I was out did you get in?
Did you draw the right stamp on your skin?
Saying “I am ready to owe you anything”

Amazing.

Phil is one Bad Astronomer. Love this.

Take me up before you let me down.

RAC ft. Matthew Koma - Cheap Sunglasses

Your limousines get stuck in traffic
And we all know you’re made of plastic
You may seem like something classic
You’re cheap sunglasses, you’re cheap sunglasses
And I see right through you

theoriginofthespecies:

In its 4.6 billion years circling the sun, the Earth has harbored an increasing diversity of life forms:

for the last 3.6 billion years, simple cells (prokaryotes);
for the last 3.4 billion years, cyanobacteria performing photosynthesis;
for the last 2 billion years, complex cells (eukaryotes);
for the last 1 billion years, multicellular life;
for the last 600 million years, simple animals;
for the last 550 million years, bilaterians, animals with a front and a back;
for the last 500 million years, fish and proto-amphibians;
for the last 475 million years, land plants;
for the last 400 million years, insects and seeds;
for the last 360 million years, amphibians;
for the last 300 million years, reptiles;
for the last 200 million years, mammals;
for the last 150 million years, birds;
for the last 130 million years, flowers;
for the last 60 million years, the primates,
for the last 20 million years, the family Hominidae (great apes);
for the last 2.5 million years, the genus Homo (human predecessors);
for the last 200,000 years, anatomically modern humans.

Periodic extinctions have temporarily reduced diversity, eliminating:
2.4 billion years ago, many obligate anaerobes, in the oxygen catastrophe;
252 million years ago, the trilobites, in the Permian–Triassic extinction event;
66 million years ago, the pterosaurs and nonavian dinosaurs, in the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event.

Dates are approximate.

Too damn high to be stoned.

Who’d of thought there’d be such a creative outlet behind a circuit board, soldering iron and LEDs?

Vegas won’t have shit on my living room.

Lincoln Jesser - Certainty

Cause baby I ain’t perfect
But I’m trying to make it worth it
Sitting on the edge of certainty
You ask me where my mind goes
I tell you where the time goes
As we wait to fall asleep
