Mostly clear skies in northern NJ, so I headed out with my colander at the appointed moment. A cloud passed over it briefly at its max so I snapped a pretty good pic of it. Will have to do until, what, 2024, but still better than the 100% overcast weather we had for the '79 one!

George Martin produced the orig recording of this--there weren't any quality didgeridoos in England at that time, so he got 8 upright basses to give the pulsating, bass twang feel. He was an amazing problem solver.

He also invented the "Cathode-ray tube amusement device" in 1947, appearing the earliest in the possible "first video game" list. You'd have to define what a "video game" is, but his was considered the first "interactive electronic game".

I should see NRBQ live then. I too have mixed feelings about them.

They did a great stint as the "house band" of The Simpsons in the late 90s with some original songs ("Mayonnaise and Marmalade", anyone?). And I feel they were on other shows like "Eek! The Cat" as well. But on the one hand NRBQ seem clever and Zappa-like, on the other they seem unfocused and all over the place. But I'd like to see them play and find out what they're about.

I saw NRBQ for the first time last night; not that well versed in the band, so don't know the lyrics that well (I can't make them out live-struggle off records. Maybe that's how I wound up getting into jazz, don't have to worry about them). Musically, though, they are spot on, lots of changes in the music, rock n roll with jazz (MONK!!!) and country blended in, and Terry Adams is fun to watch. I had a good time.

The Dragon swallowing the Moon is prob a Chinese/East Asian myth of the eclipse, while in India two halves of a split serpent are responsible. Rahu and Ketu are considered "shadow planets" along with the other 7 classical planets Sun, Moon and Mercury through Saturn.

Their Navagraha astrology is pretty interesting, they have a whole set of myths apparently created to explain the sometimes unusual astronomical observations.

Scott Williams your show is amazing; so is your guitar playing. I watched the eclipse with a kind stranger who of course shared his full helmet Welding Mask to watch the eclipse; a really yellow moon upside down. Excuse to live, go outside and party on top of Eagle Rock mountain. Report over. Love is Laughter; lost of tears.
Avatar    Mon. 8/21/17 4:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Ha, a neighbor was also using his welding mask to view the eclipse!

@Matt: no, it's just some generic eclipse shot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/21/17 5:01pm Jeff:

The welding mask thing is dangerous - while welding masks are indeed designed to dim glare and block the invisible wavelengths which can also cause eye damage, apparently most welding masks of a practical darkness for welding aren't dark enough for sun viewing. NASA's site says only "Shade 12" or darker welding masks are likely to be safe - and that probably the fairly rare Shade 13 would be optimal.

A Jewish myth about the eclipse is it happens because you don’t eat enough.
  Mon. 8/21/17 5:13pm JakeGould:

Also if the eclipse falls on Saturday, it means you should spend more time with your mother.

Because you don’t go to the bathroom enough the sun has to hide itself. The whole solar system knows this!

If you don’t eat your pierogis the moon has to hide away in shame that you leave food behind like that.

"the Arapaho Plains Indians, who saw the celestial bodies as siblings, a brother sun and a sister moon, were alarmed to see that the two were suddenly converging. An obvious question was prompted, ... : “What are they doing having sex in the sky?" "

@Jake: There's starvation and suffering in the world! And you won't even finish your pierogis?!? And it's not like this is garbage, is it? This is your bubbe's pierogi recipe, this is wonderful food! You know what your bubbe ate for dinner when they first came to America? Half an egg! Try to leave any of THAT behind!

We used a welding mask at my mom's, but there was also a layer of clouds to block the rays. I'm not blind just now, so all is well.
