Night owl chat – TEDTalks: Nature, beauty, gratitude

From YouTube:

Nature’s beauty can be easily missed — but not through Louie Schwartzberg’s lens. His stunning time-lapse photography, accompanied by powerful words from Benedictine monk Brother David Steindl-Rast, serves as a meditation on being grateful for every day.

Revel in beauty, and chat on, Night Owls!

Night Owl Chat – Northern Soul

Party time!!

From Wikipedia:

Northern soul is a music and dance movement that emerged in Northern England in the late 1960s from the British mod scene. Northern soul mainly consists of a particular style of black American soul music based on the heavy beat and fast tempo of the mid-1960s Tamla Motown sound.

The northern soul movement, however, generally eschews Motown or Motown-influenced music that has met with significant mainstream success. The recordings most prized by enthusiasts of the genre are usually by lesser-known artists, released only in limited numbers, often by small regional American labels such as Ric-Tic and Golden World Records (Detroit), Mirwood (Los Angeles) and Shout and Okeh (New York/Chicago).

Time to dance, night owls.

After today, depressing and all a read as it was, maybe Charles Pierce was right: President Obama “should have run for president of a better country than this”.

But, there’s always hope:
