The Curious Case of Todd Sees

a repost of an article I made on my old site originally published on February 9, 2014

What is it about power lines?  All of us know them and we see them carved all over the country.  They rip into hills and carry up to 800,000 volts across the landscape.  Since a child, I’ve always felt uneasy about the power lines around us.  I’m not a physicist or electrical engineer, but the idea of all that electrical energy passing through a wire conduit above and around us and it not being a health concern? Power lines, to me, have always felt unnatural to me. Continue reading “The Curious Case of Todd Sees”

Not a bad start to the weekend. Continue reading “Joe Meek : What Daft Punk Sounded Like in 1959”

The original Suicide Squad in action on October 31, 1936 (or in November, or December of 36…depending on the source)

***note : this is work in progress and I will continue to add as time permits

I recently was able to contribute a bit of information I had collected in respect to the mythos of Jack Parsons over the past few years to a conversation I had with Crrow777 and Jason Lindgren of the Secrets of Saturn podcast yesterday (4-19-17) afternoon.  The conversation centered around the creation of Pasadena’s Jet Propulsion Laboratories, and included many esoteric fragments that appeared to surround the evolution of JPL at the beginning of the 20th century.
