Gunblogger Duty Done
A brain fart left my Ruger SP-101 hiding in my lens bag, so Jo got a exclusive diet of automatics. She did equally well with the GLOCK 19 and 23, but struggled with cocking the stiff recoil spring on the .45. She seemed to enjoy shooting everything I offered and got most hits on the paper plate about 15 feet down range.
Next outing will feature the revolver and a 9-mm carbine.

Tiny, My Hiney!
|Photo hoarked from eBay.com|
I see lots of articles in social media about how the Tiny House Movement is so great; geez, they used to just call them "trailers/mobile homes." If you want to live in a Conex container, join the Army and feel at home with your housemates.
Me, I want more than a dozen of these, stacked double, insulated and covered in spray-concrete just like most of the new homes in Arizona. They would connect to towers containing spiral staircases (one would have a cargo elevator instead), and the outside walls would feature a crenelated parapet as a privacy wall for any sunbathing, etc., going on up there. The towers would be topped with solar panels and quiet vertical windmills.
Who needs windows? You can have all the windows you want in the inner wall. Cameras and HD monitors/TVs give a view of the outside world... or the latest NFL game.
Don't even get me starting thinking about the basement!

Steampunk Postal Match
Monday, April 28, 2014
1 of 3 OFFICIAL WINNERS of the TMBG "Am I Awake?" music video contest! From TMBGs new compilation album Idlewild! Judge John Hodgman speaks:
"Alex Italics, for the video I call "Don't Say 'Grassy Knoll,' say 'Grassy YES.'" The amount of talent that has been poured into this--from all the actors to the all the costumes to the set design and the video design, not to mention the elderly newsman tear deployment--makes it as hypnotic as the Zapruder film."
I'm in there somewhere.
