I’ve been a fan of 30 Seconds To Mars for a while. One of my all-time favorite music videos is “From Yesterday,” released in 2005. I’ve seen it countless times. And continue to listen to it on repeat. I totally dig the short film approach to music videos.
I recently discovered a documentary the band put together called “Artifact.” From 2012, I’m a little late to the party, but it chronicles the band’s epic journey and battle with their music label, EMI, as they try to release “This is War” in 2009 (as well as the documentary). Highly recommend if you have Netflix.
They have another awesome short story / video from This is War called Hurricane (check it out. warning: uncensored).
Couldn’t help but take a bracketed exposure of this evening’s sunset at the ranch. Simply spectacular.
The John Muir Trail.
A total hike of 210.4 miles. Starting from Yosemite Valley (Happy Isles), summiting Mt. Whitney 210.4 miles later (or vice versa).
How has this been in my backyard all my life (literally), and I’ve not heard of it?
Of course I’ve heard of John Muir. I’ve lived most most formative years in a small town named Visalia (after being born in Dinuba). We looked up at at Mt. Whitney every day. And, as kids, we even attended 6th grade summer camp at Scicon in the John Muir wilderness.
After my family moved out of the valley … where did we move? To the higher Sierras. At that point, I was looking out over Jose Basin and the Minarets on a DAILY basis.
I’ve been staring at the JMT my entire life. Yet, I’ve never experienced it. I feel like I’m being called.
That would have been an awesome show to go to live. dangit.
They were right about you. [32:55]
If you ride BART with any frequency, you should be signed up for BART alerts >here<. Otherwise you're missing out notifications of critical timing delays at worst, and at best, some mild entertainment.
Without further ado, this evening’s entertainment:
11:04 PM PT:
BART service has stopped between Coliseum/Oakland Airport and Bay Fair due to a structure fire near BART tracks in San Leandro.
11:16 PM PT:
BART service has been restored between Coliseum and Bayfair.
11:18 PM PT:
BART is recovering from an earlier problem. There is a 15-minute delay between Coliseum/Oakland Airport and Bay Fair due to an earlier station closure.
Let’s recap: full-on stoppage due to “fire” to a 15 min delay, all within 14 minutes.
BART. You are epic!
