Just hung out with a farmer upstate, who studied books from the 1700’s about cow rearing and how to till the best soil. He knows everything about the hair pattern on the haunches of cows and how that correlates to the shape of their birth canals, and what diameter of bird houses to put up to attract the right species of bird to eat ticks. He is also a bee keeper who makes his own honey and raw milk and is a champion horse rider. People like him and his Amish neighbors are the real post apocalyptic punk rockers who will survive and thrive when the rest of civilization crumbles. #LearnSurvivalSkillsCitySlickers #CantEatSoundcloudRap

Some clips from one of the first videos I ever directed (and edited, styled, cast, did props and set design for as usual). Was awesome working with senior citizens. Later saw the old lady pouring sugar in my video on an episode of My Strange Addiction about a teenage boy obsessed with dating women his grandmother’s age...she was all tarted up and giving him a lap dance! Anyway thanks to @gregkadelstudios and @lukelanter and @thedavidstrange for production crew and working overtime (swipe to see the sugar lady)
Happy birthday to my dear friend and mentor Billy Corgan, or as he prefers, William Von Patrick Corgan the III ;) Love you in all your glorious oddity, and that brightly burning high octane train engine of a brain. Thanks for inspiring me and so many kids of the last era where music was actually cool, and rock gods still existed. Hope I make you proud one day. xx
For Women’s day, I pick Katherine Johnson, the african american woman who’s equations helped get us to the moon.
A math prodigy from West Virginia who said she “counted everything” as a child — “the steps to the road, the steps up to church, the number of dishes and silverware I washed” — Mrs. Johnson was eventually hired by NASA as a “computer” (before machines took over this title and job.) She spent her early career studying plane crashes, until the Soviet satellite Sputnik sent the space race into full spiral.
Calculating the trajectory for an orbital flight to return safely to earth was the biggest challenge, as there had been fatally failed attempts. “I said let me do it,’ ” Mrs. Johnson recalls. “You tell me when and where you want it to land, and I’ll do it backwards and tell you when to take off.”
This paper marked the first time a woman wrote a technical report in NASA’s elite flight research division.
Hollywood has since tried to embellish her story, and had her running a mile to segregated bathrooms, but in reality she says she “never experienced discrimination, but that’s just me. I used whatever bathroom I wanted.” Clearly this was a woman who commanded respect.
