#1190: Noctilucent clouds

I actually saw one last night.

I've been looking for a while, ever since Spaceweather.com gave me the idea to look for them. They're not common this far south.

Last night, though, as I was leaving for work, I saw--right overhead--an electric blue cloud. The color alone told me it was unquestionably a noctilucent cloud.

Sadly, I didn't have time to look for more. But that was pretty cool. I plan to keep looking, of course.

I would have liked to have gotten more sleep this afternoon than I did, but my stomach and execretory system had other ideas. One wanted input; the other wanted to output. And once that was taken care of, I was wide awake and wasn't going to bother trying to sleep. Well, maybe after dinner....

Back in 1986, a friend of mine took the instrumental version of the "Super Bowl Shuffle" and used it to make "The Vazales Rap".

Mr. Vazales was the Humanities teacher at Crete-Monee High School, and he had this tendency to give vent to his loquacity through excessively bombastic circumlocution. So my friend, as a form of satire, made this rap song. As "old school" rap goes, it was actually pretty decent, considering that he somehow managed to include all of the rap schtick of the time (eg the rapper saying "I am the best") and--for recording equipment--had a couple of tape recorders.

Still, over the past couple of days I've been thinking about what I could do with FL Studio and a couple of hours' time, and concluded that it's not outside of my capabilities to make an actual real professional-sounding version of the song. (Except, probably, for the vocals.)

Hmm.
