From the official Ramones Facebook page:

We are saddened to announce the passing of Tommy Ramone (nee Erdelyi), the original drummer for the Ramones, earlier today, 11 July 2014.

"It wasn't just music in The Ramones: it was an idea. It was bringing back a whole feel that was missing in rock music — it was a whole push outwards to say something new and different. Originally it was just an artistic type of thing; finally I felt it was something that was good enough for everybody." - Tommy Ramone, 1978

RIP Tommy.

Reliving Marc Anthony at AVA

Posted By on Mon, Sep 16, 2013 at 11:00 AM

Marc Anthony

Marc Anthony performed to a full house at Anselmo Valencia Tori Amphitheater, Saturday, Sept. 14. Opening up for Anthony was comedian, Joey Vega. Vega had the fans laughing as they waited for Anthony to perform. Vega completed his stand-up and the lights went out; the crowd went wild. A video began playing showing Anthony walking to the stage. Smoke filled the stage and Anthony began to rise to the top of the stage's staircase. The crowd could only see his silhouette, which brought on more cheering. He slowly walked down dancing and singing "I Need to Know." It was a night full of energy and dancing as he played a lot of Salsa music. Anthony sang his new hit "Vivir Mi Vida as well as classics, such as "Mi Gente," and "Vivir Lo Nuestro."

My only complaint about the show? It was too short.

Bad Astronomy: Martian Flash Flood

Posted By on Thu, Sep 5, 2013 at 1:30 PM

Phil Plait's Bad Astronomy blog flags a photo from the UA's HiRISE camera aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter to note that it may have rained on Mars a long time ago:

This fan is on the inside of the rim of Mojave Crater, a 60-kilometer-wide (40-mile-wide) impact crater near the equator of Mars. The structure matches an Earthly alluvial fan almost perfectly. Larger boulders are heavier and can’t be carried as easily by floodwaters, so they tend to stop soon after the terrain levels out. Smaller rocks can travel farther, which appears to be the case here. The branches, the shape, the direction: Everything indicates a flash flood on Mars.

What could have caused it? This part surprised me: It may have been due to rain, water rain, that could occur after an asteroid or comet impact. For example, ice under the surface could be melted by the impact, which would then rain down over a large area. This would be a temporary and local event, but could spark flash floods something like rainstorms do here on Earth.

But after that, gravity and terrain did the rest, on Mars as it is on Earth. That’s actually rather astonishing: Given some basic and fundamental principles, you can actually figure out how weather and erosion processes work on another planet. And when you look at it, it actually kinda reminds you of home.

Captivating Photos From the Arizona Borderlands

Posted By on Thu, Aug 22, 2013 at 10:00 AM

  • Lara Shipley

Slate's photo blog, Behold, celebrates the photography of Lara Shipley:

Lara Shipley became interested in doing a project in southern Arizona after moving to Phoenix in 2010. Shipley was raised in a small Midwestern town and sees this as the source of her interest in isolated and rural areas. Once she arrived in Arizona, Shipley began investigating the borderlands, spending time getting to know the various towns and their inhabitants and making as many as two trips a month from her home in Phoenix. She finds her subjects organically, meeting people during her visits.

Shipley’s stylistic approach is to use a blend of found and manipulated scenarios; some are staged, and others are shot as she finds them. This blending of actual, real-life documentary subjects with manipulated elements becomes interesting when applied to a region generally covered in a more straightforward documentary fashion.

Shipley's website is here.
