    Not for the fainthearted. These guys are the most skilled exponents of the Rap/Metal hybrid. WARNING: Contains explicit language, violence, and bulk satire!

      Delightful Phantom, tho’ I far more enjoy Ice T’s performances in SVU. Angry music makes me feel less angry, so here’s another old favourite…

    A Claytons frost last night (a few litle patches) was followed by a glorious day. No excuse for putting off the lawnmowing…geez, what a job it was. No wonder the horses were stuffing themselves.

        Actually that might even be Mercury, that low on the horizon.

          Look to the East, Saturn is rising.

            Oh yes I know Saturn PG – it’s been stunning and unmissable for weeks now. It’s directly overhead around 11 pmish lately.

            That photo was taken on 19 May, so It could’ve been Venus, although when I see Venus it’s mostly in the morning. I’d need to check if it was Mercury. When I think about it, it’s unlikely. It’s usually too low on the horizon to be seen from my place because of the hills. It’s so close to the sun I think you can only usually see it for a short period when the sun sets or just rises.

            From my observations, Venus always has a brilliantly white light, Saturn’s light is always yellow, & when it’s up although Venus is next in brightness to the Moon, you can’t miss Saturn, it’s so big compared to other stars.

            And Mars will be up there tonite too, I expect. It looks yellow as well, but there’s a reddish tint to the edges. The naked-eye-visible outer planets all follow more or less the path of the sun which is handy if you’re not sure whether it’s a star or planet you’re looking at.

          It’s Venus G. Mercury is generally elusive to the naked eye, unless one knows where to look

            Covered just above. Low on the horizon and close to the sun.

              Yup, Mercury is elusive, but is an unmistakable pinpoint just after sunset, at the right time. Matariki is almost upon us, keep your dawn eyes on te horizon, e hoa 😉

            Full moon tonite. If you go out now and you can see it, you can’t miss Jupiter above and to the left, patu.

        Funnily enough Pants, that talented pianist was once a ‘one hit wonder’. Personally, I love this song. Feel free to disagree…

    “Something kinda sad about, the way that things have come to be.
    Desensitized to everything, what became of subtlety?
    How can this mean anything to me?

    Been lurking thru the threads, and really can’t be arsed arguing with anyone. Opinions are like arseholes, everyone has one, but most folk are polite enough to not ‘moon’ everybody else. Goodnight y’all…
