Zack gets a new middle name today! (See the show title.) He has made it safe and sound to Karenland, along with the Knodel Clan, and it seems they couldn’t be happier. Bobbo was a bit spooked by the sound of the cicadas singing as this is a year for them to emerge, at least the smaller horde, and it is an eerie sound if you’ve never heard it, for sure. Zack has sore fingertips now that he has his guitar back in hand, and Walt commiserates, now that he is in E standard tuning again…which lands us firmly in Guitar Geek Realm for a few.
–Blanets, dammit, Blanets. No, really. NASA may be trying to be more politicorrect about astronomes de plumes, but there are not trying to be smarter with their name game.
–Ok, John Savage, here’s one for your gematria files: Astronomers May Have Found a Star That’s Just 33 Years Old.
This star is a 90s kid. No. Really. A team of astronomers has “observed” what they “believe” to be a neutron star being born following a supernova first detected in 1987, in a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way 170,000 light-years from Earth, dubbed SN 1987A. Until now, astronomers weren’t sure if the neutron star survived the powerful event and didn’t just collapse in on itself to form a black hole — but a new paper published last week in The Astrophysical Journal suggests that it may have survived after all.
That means the neutron star would be a millennial, no older than 33.
If confirmed, it would be the youngest neutron star known to mankind, as Astronomy reports. To date, the youngest supernova remnant is the 330 years old Cassiopeia A, about 11,000 light-years away from Earth inside the Milky Way.

We get caught up in quite the Willy Willy this morning, flinging Faraday all about the plane, energies are all wackadoo, coffee abandoned, but we forge ahead (YES! Noice one!) and come up with a few brain bursts in spite of the extra bad mojo that has us all in a weird place. –We expound...

Money, money everywhere, but not a drop to think. Is it live or is it Memorex? (Do you even reMemorex that reference?)

They’ve mocked us with it for years. Now it seems we may have the last and loudest laugh after all. Between the idea of Turtle Calendar and Turtle Island, plus piezoelectric pagodas mixed with Dean’s idea about Earth being Babel’s buildings on top of Babel’s buildings…things that make you go huuuuummmmmmmmm!!! –NASA nixer? Nay? Yay?...

We are all over the place, including memory lane, looking for those lost cassette joys of days gone by, which, seems not everyone can access. Visuals. Memories. Linked? Genetic predisposition being part of the soul’s choosing who to hang around? Were the Beatles really THAT good?? –Apes are everywhere these days, films, flinging, and now...

Are we really here to save the world…or just to play a good game? Is that sound in your earsight the dawning of enlightenment for all of Humankind…or just the owls laughing at us? Is the Silver Surfer busy warning us of Galactus’ arrival…or just jamming to Spank The Monkey? Do I really like ellipsis…or...
