20160911-imgp5712 PENTAX *ist DS (55mm, f/8, 1/350 sec, ISO1600)

(Riff Raff) It’s astounding
Time is fleeting
Madness takes it’s toll…

(Magenta) Ahh…

(Riff Raff) But listen closely…

(Magenta) Not for very much longer…

(Riff Raff) I’ve got to keep control.
I remember doing the Time Warp.
Drinking those moments when
The blackness would hit me.

(Riff Raff & Magenta) And the void would be calling.

(Guests) Let’s do the Time Warp again.
Let’s do the Time Warp again.

Day 26 of 365 – Flip or flop?

20160911-imgp5720 PENTAX *ist DS (26mm, f/11, 1/180 sec, ISO1600)

In electronics, a flipflop or latch is a circuit that has two stable states and can be used to store state information. Aflipflop is a bistable multivibrator. The circuit can be made to change state by signals applied to one or more control inputs and will have one or two outputs.


Day 24 of 365 – Rockin’ The Palace Theatre

PENTAX *ist DS (55mm, f/9.5, 1/350 sec, ISO1600)

So whatcha doin’ tonight?
Have you heard that the world’s gone crazy?
Young Americans listen when I say there’s people puttin’ us down
I know they’re sayin’ that we’ve gone lazy
To tell you the truth we’ve all seen better days
Don’t need no fast buck lame duck profits for fun
Quick trick plans, take the money and run
We need long term, slow burn, getting it done
And some straight talking, hard working son of a gun.
Whatcha doin’ tonight, I got faith in our generation
Let’s stick together and futurize our attitudes
I ain’t lookin’ to fight, but I know with determination
We can challenge the schemers who cheat all the rules

Come on take pride, be wise, spottin’ the fools
No more big shots, crackpots bending the rules
A fair shot here for me and for you
Knowing that we can’t lose

And we’ll be rockin’ in Paradise
Rockin’ the Paradise tonight
Rockin’ in Paradise
Rockin’ the Paradise tonight
Tonight, tonight…

Day 15 of 365 – Son of Zorn

20160911-imgp5732 PENTAX *ist DS (31mm, f/8, 1/90 sec, ISO1600)

This is in the window of the local Fox affiliate on Market St.  I like the comic book lettering look of it.

Zorn, the defender of Zephyria, conqueror of the tribes of Agon, decapitator of the dark herdsmen of Grith, is an overlord of pain from an island in the Pacific Ocean where everyone is animated, but he finds his greatest battle may be the adjustment to the banality of middle class America. Zorn returns to the suburbs of Orange County, Calif., on a mission to reconnect with his estranged ex-wife, Edie, and their son, Alan, but suffers a setback when he finds Edie engaged to another man. He decides to stick around anyway, hoping to forge a relationship with Alan, getting an apartment and a job in sales and trying to funnel his warrior energy into dealing with everyday foes — like the DMV

Day 12 of 365 – Hammer to fall

20160911-imgp5803 PENTAX *ist DS (55mm, f/5.6, 1/125 sec, ISO1600)

Here we stand or here we fall
History won’t care at all
Make the bed, light the light
Lady mercy won’t be home tonightYeah, you don’t waste no time at all
Don’t hear the bell but you answer the call
It comes to you as to us all
Hey, we’re just waiting
For the hammer to fall – yeah

Oh every night, and every day
A little piece of you is falling away
But lift your face, the western way, baby
Build your muscles as your body decays

Yeah, toe your line and play their game
Yeah, let the anaesthetic cover it all
Till one day they call your name
You know it’s time for the hammer to fall – yeah

Rich or poor or famous for
Your truth it’s all the same – oh no – oh no
Oh lock your door but rain is pouring
Through your window pane – oh no – yeah
Baby now your struggle’s all vain

Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh

For we who grew up tall and proud
In the shadow of the mushroom cloud
Convinced our voices can’t be heard
We just wanna scream it louder and louder and louder

What the hell we fighting for?
Ah, just surrender and it won’t hurt at all
You just got time to say your prayers
Eh, while you’re waiting for the hammer to hammer to fall
Hey, yes, it’s starting to fall eh, hammer, you know
Yeah, hammer to fall, wooh, ah, hey, eh woowoo, ha eh hammer
Waiting for the hammer to fall baby
Yeah yeah while you’re waiting for the hammer to fall
Give it to me one more time
