Nutcase Takes on Gator While Gator Takes on Cop Car

The beast was either dull in the skull or wanted to take a bite out of crime when it latched on to the vehicle’s front bumper and wouldn’t let go, even after the Alachua County officer put the car in reverse. One moxie alligator decided to stand up to the long arm of the law near Gainesville, Fla., by going head to grill with a deputy’s squad car Sunday. Once it was dragged by its teeth several feet, it finally released its grip and was taken into custody by a trapper. Officials wouldn’t say if the beast would be relocated to the nearby state park from which they thought it came, but added that aggressive gators are usually harvested… a nice way a saying he might be looking good as a pair of boots soon.

I was in Florida that same day to set up my new lake home I purchased recently and got to meet a similar wildlife neighbor. By coincidence, “Al” I cleverly dubbed the almost 7-foot gator as he approached shoreline just off the screened-in pool in the backyard. There he sat for more than an hour eyeballing my three Chihuahuas that immediately signaled the alarm while on border patrol behind the screen. After listening to the Mexicans yap for much too long, I decided not so cleverly to take matters into my own hands and scare the gator away. Armed with a long-handled pool brush and wishing Steve Irwin were still alive, I nervously hit the ground several times with the brush as I walked toward Al. He didn’t move. I think I heard him laugh. Then, I backed off as the beast gave me what I presumed was the big stink eye. From behind, I heard one of my human neighbors, who had been observing my stupidity, say amusingly, “Proceed with caution… it’s mating season.”

theyosttheater.com for a CD release event featuring the long running act of Los Angles based LA Guns as the premier performers and they did not disappoint. Their new CD is off the hook with great songs, a hard hitting bass beat with the rhythmic sound Tracy Gunns is known for. Opening the show was the Orange County based Vietnamese band DaVang, who are always willing to kick things off, the bass player, who is known by the nickname Dr. Phil once told me it does not matter when or where we go on we just want to rock America. Other bands such as Sheer Lust, Lizard Fish and Beyond Retaliation kept the crowd well entertained in anticipation of what was to come. But to the surprise of all who love and know the Los Angeles based band Stonebreed, they came ready to entertain, and entertain they did with a hard hitting set of familiar tunes along with some new innovative songs, however they ran out of time and the set was cut short to keep on schedule.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — In a Twitter post Tuesday , the Anaheim Fire Department asks: “Ever wonder what happens when a car is parked in front of a fire hydrant and a fire breaks out? A California fire department enflamed some social media users but amused others by posting pictures of the busted-out windows of a car parked in front of a fire hydrant. Is a closer parking spot worth the broken windows and the citation and towing fees?” The post included four photos showing the sedan’s rear side windows busted out to make way for a fire hose. “We posted this incident to illustrate and educate, not to humiliate anyone,” the post said. One man joked: “The owner of that car is totally hosed.

The department penned a new post Wednesday after a virtual firestorm of responses, including many saying the hose could have gone over the car, or that the department shouldn’t have shamed the driver by posting the photos, which don’t include any identifying information. “In answer as to why break the windows instead of going under, over, or around the car … it doesn’t work. The hose needs a straight line out of the hydrant. We do not damage property unless it is needed.” The department further explained that putting the hose on top of the car would have caused “even more body damage.” Other users had little sympathy for the driver, with some saying there should be a special fine for slowing down firefighters when every second counts Rightfully so.

Centuries-Old ‘Witch Marks’ Found In Ancient Cave What The Hell Is Down There?

If there is a gateway to hell, a portal from the underworld used by demons and witches to wreak their evil havoc on humanity, then it could be in a small Creswell Crags cave. “What were they concerned about that they would go to this level? There is no area that hasn’t got a mark on it somewhere.” “You can’t help but wonder: How scared were they of something?” asked Paul Baker, director of Creswell Crags, an ancient cave system about 150 miles north of London. In what sounds like the opening scene of a horror movie, British cave enthusiasts have discovered hundreds of centuries-old protective marks and ritualistic drawings designed to capture, trap and repel evil forces. The nonprofit organization said it could be the largest collection of apotropaic marks in the United Kingdom. The drawings, which date to the medieval and early modern periods, had been spotted before but dismissed as graffiti from more recent eras.

However, cavers from the Subterranea Britannica organization noticed that the etchings we re actually apotropaic marks ― essentially protective marks ― scrawled all over the wells, ceilings and around holes and crevices, the cave’s operator said in a news release. The markings, at Creswell Crags, a limestone gorge on the Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire border, include hundreds of letters, symbols and patterns carved, at a time when belief in witchcraft was widespread. The etchings include “diagonal lines, boxes and mazes” believed to be “devices for capturing or trapping ‘evil.’’ ” There are also V V marks that are believed to represent Mary, “Virgin of Virgins,” as well as P M, for “Pace Maria.” But it’s not clear what, specifically, the “witches’ marks” were aimed at. “It could be fairies, witches, whatever you were fearful of, it was going to be down there,” Alison Fearn, a University of Leicester expert on protective marks, told The Guardian. The cave’s organization said the marks could have been made to ward off sickness, death and poor crop yields.

Triggered By Oral Sex Woman Has Stroke Almost Dies

The Crow here for c4oc radio

According to a new report from the British Medical Journal, an unidentified 44-year-old woman suffered a “transient loss of consciousness (TLOC)” while receiving oral sex from her partner. The British woman had to go to the hospital after an intense impending orgasm triggered the stroke.
The woman was unconscious for two to three minutes after the sex, her partner got nervous and took her to the emergency room at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London. Doctors later learned she had experienced a blackout caused by a sudden lack of blood supply to the brain, also known a reflex-mediated syncope, according to IFLScience.com. The woman told doctors she had a headache that she described as a 6 out of 10 on the pain scale, according to the The Sun, the man told doctors his partner’s body had gone stiff during their session. At first, doctors believed, based on the symptoms, that the woman had suffered a seizure.

“On closer history taking, the patient reported nearing orgasm while receiving oral sex from her partner before losing consciousness,” the authors wrote in their report for the BMJ. A CT scan and a CT angiography showed she had an aneurysm, leading to a subarachnoid hemorrhage ― a kind of stroke. “Studies with intra-arterial monitoring during coitus demonstrate that during sexual activity blood pressure, as well as heart rate, is very labile, with particular rises during orgasm.” “Activities that involve sudden increases in blood pressure and sexual activity is well described as a precipitant,” they write in the case report. The researchers said it’s not unheard of for orgasms to cause stroke. The report said doctors treated the woman with a procedure called endovascular coiling, which uses a catheter to transmit a tiny coil to seal off the aneurysm from blood flow. She was released from the hospital 15 days later. Four months later, doctors say, she’s suffered no further problems.

In Order To Explore Human Emotions This Artist Photographs Sex Dolls

The Crow here for c4oc radio

Sex dolls — sometimes called love dolls — often transcend their function as toys. They’ve been used to spark not just physical but also mental and emotional responses in human beings. “It would be impossible to live forever if you’re human, but dolls will never go anywhere. So I thought about giving the gift of life and identity to dolls,” the artist explained. In his project “Still Lives: Eva,” New York-based visual artist June Korea explores loneliness and other emotions through a series of photographs featuring a female sex doll. Korea has been photographing dolls since 2001, a pursuit driven by his personal feelings of loneliness. He often finds himself meditating on the ephemerality of life and happiness, he told HuffPost Korea. Korea says that the emotions he was able to curate in this essay were drawn from personal encounters. “Most of the scenes are from my own memories and experiences,” he explained. “These photographs are like a mirror that reflects who I am.”

After meeting her for the first time ― in a FedEx box ― he decided to name the doll Eva. “The name is a combination of forever, representing eternity and Eve, humanity’s first woman,” Korea said. In the photo essay, Korea and Eva share a meal, go shopping and go for walks. In different images across the collection, the doll appears to be lonely, vulnerable, pensive and even disappointed. Korea plans to continue to photograph Eva. “I think of this as a lifelong project, but I still haven’t decided how the story will end,” he says. But he already anticipates that he will face a few challenges. “As time passes, I will grow older, but Eva will not,” he noted. “I expect that the story will portray this process and the feelings of estrangement, alienation, loneliness and other various emotions that may follow,” Korea concluded. “Could the ultimate ending be death, a breakup or a happy ending?”

Creating A Band Image.

Image is important! But is it as important as the music you play? Experts say “yes”!! Image is tied to professionalism… your look, appearance, the way you carry yourself (on and off stage) are all important factors in portraying a professional musician.

Here are a few pointers in helping you to build a healthy band image.

1. Email Address

I know it seems silly but something this simple is one of the first impressions you make as a band. Potsmoker420 does not send a positive message. Stick to your band name or the persons name that does your correspondence.

2. Social Media

Never (ever) discredit a promoter, venue, vendor or booking agent on social media pages …if you wish to continue doing any business with them. Word spreads quickly and you do not want to get a difficult to work with” reputation.

3. Follow up/ Follow through

Call back, email, private message as soon as possible. A timely response shows that not only do you care about your band but also respect the time and hard work of others. It shows punctuality!

4. Promptness

Be on time… even early if possible, it shows respect for your fellow hardworking musicians. Be prepared.

5. Never stop a song in middle

If you have rehearsed, it will show…. just as it does when you have not. Yes, to err is human but 9 out of 10 people will never realize you’ve made a mistake unless you draw attention to it!! Its not the mistakes you make but how you recover from them!

6.  Drunk musicians are not hot!!

Save the majority of your drinking for after you perform. I think we’ve all seen a show where one band member had way over indulged.. not often a pretty sight nor is it at all professional. Above all… never make a drunken scene , you’re not likely to be asked back.

7. Clean spaces

Always remember… clean up after yourself! Take your glasses to the bar, your empties to the trash, etc. It shows respect for the band performing after you, as well as the venue staff!

These are just a few things I’ve learned over the last few years that make a lasting impression. What do you want your image to say about your band? Do you want people excited to book you , to come out and see you, to buy your music? If so, i hope these  few tips help!!

 

Stonebreed…. Not only do they look like rock stars and sound like rock stars but have a stellar reputation of professionalism.

Kantation. The band has the look and the sound!! Always do what they say they are going to do! As well as being extremely supportive of other bands by attending as many gigs as possible when not performing themselves.. always give back to the community.
