This visual is from the SOHO / Solar Heliospheric Observatory that orbits around the sun. You can see all kind of stuff flying around in these images as well as the sun's discharges from the link above. On this SOHO sight you can create a gif and even save it to your computer if you care to. To get the view above, Select - LASCO C3 and enter a start date and end date and press search and then wait a bit watch the Sun! As I said you can see a lot more then just the sun, you can see planets. Planets reflect vertical lines off them & move slowly. I would guess maybe the other stuff you see from the SOHO could the defined as space junk. It is hard to really know... but it is interesting.
I watched this last night and found the whole thing rather interesting. To see anything that shows the creative process of John Lennon is interesting. I would have rather watched a literal making of Johns first solo album, but I don't think that is out there. It seems to me like Phil Spectors presents is almost useless. At one point Phil is messing around and trying to add echo to one of the songs and it is hard to tell what he says, but you can tell the "wall of sound" thing isn't working out. Also there is one point where Phil and John are going to add harmonies to "Oh Yoko" and Phil is holding back from singing, when they are trying to sing. I am not sure if Phil is actually on the album singing, but at the same time they where having trouble with finding the correct point in the song to do the harmonies due to the engineer not being able to find the point John wanted to sing harmonies on. Additionally at one point John says to Phil after recording a song "You really are great Phil... one of the Greats" in a very sarcastic manner and Yoko is just sitting beside John laughing and you hear a few other laughs, but it is not the kind of good buddy laugh. It is a making fun of kind of laugh, so I don't think Phil was very useful. He also seemed withdrawn from everyone and when he did speak it was very soft spoken and had the most minimal input. Maybe he was shy around the camera, it is hard to tell what really happened because you can only see so much, but these are my impressions from the film. You should watch it and tell me what you think!

Dragoon Babi is a Rock Jam sort of thing... I plan for it to be the final track of the Dragoon Babi Kluster Album. It will be a short album of about 5 songs.
One Night at a Time is a little pop rock single that I wrote and recorded in about 8 hours of time. This song will be on the 10th Eshniner Forest album. The next Eshniner album will be about 10 or 12 songs long. I don't want it to be as long as Temples and Pyramids, because I want to make an album that is worth 10 to 12 dollars.
I ultimately would like to be paid for my music... but for now most all my music is free on my Eshniner Forest Bandcamp Page.

The second album is Eshniner Forest's 10th album. I have about 4 or 5 songs completed & want it to have about 10 songs in total for the entire album. I only want it to be 10 songs, because ultimately I would like it to only cost about 10 dollars. My last album had 18 tracks & I want to sell it for close to 20 dollars. I know I don't really mention money to often but it would be nice, if some day people actually liked my music enough to pay for it. It would be nice & I am in no hurry, but as for now most all my music is for free on my Bandcamp site until that distant unknown day in the future.
Check out SANTA ON THE MOON! You can either listen to on that page or download it. The Santa on the Moon Single is Free Free Free as are most all my other albums on my BANDCAMP page.
1: Back to the Future - 1985
2: Star War's The Empire Strikes Back - 1980
3: The Great Dictator - 1940

Check it out if your interested, It is titled Emptiness is Nowhere...
It is a simplistic sort of album. I was thinking about John and Yoko's Wedding Album as well as their first album Two Virgins. I liked the idea of making an album of short tape recordings... I would have used a tape recorder but I got a similar result by just using a computer. I wanted to convey my recent thoughts and emotions as well open a little "window of me" without going to deep and to just keep things simple.
Tonight I also recorded a cover of Jingle Bells the Christmas song. I would like to record a few more Christmas songs, but I am not to interested in making a whole album... maybe I will just stick to recording one Christmas recording a year. Last year I released a Christmas Single called Curtain of Blue. It has 2 tracks... Curtain of Blue and Christmas Message 2015.

I think it is best just to create content at my own pace. I think more interactive videos is the way to go... just not myself playing a cover... possibly a VLOG of some kind. As hopeful as creating something to hear or see is via the internet is... the likelihood of someone else experiencing it other then myself is almost zero. I would love to make more and create more and post more, but with out a reason to post something... I find the result of no interactions boring.
I know it only takes one thing to get a billion views, but I am at the point that... I have already made a lot of internet content and another thing in my pile of internet content seems to have no effect. I also know that internet is the way to go, but my direction is loosing its focus. I would like to have a purpose to post things that I love and have more then a handful of fans that are waiting for the next thing from Eshniner Forest.
I love the internet and the few fans as well as friends that I do have, but again... I want to share but without fuel I keep getting dimmer and dimmer.
If anyone wants to work on anything artistic or creative via the internet... lets do it!

I have this blog but other life activities happen & you forget about it for a while & then I'll remember I have a blog again & then I'll use again until I forget again. Its the life of a blog I guess. I mostly post on twitter because it is easy to say things quickly & have a few people actually read it but here ( this blog ) is an empty void waiting for random readers. I have noticed on facebook if I post something original like a comic or a song it gets far less views then if I post a little text update. It seems the simpler & less time is oriented in the post the more people see it. So if you put your heart into something artistic no one cares or has the time for, but if you say something brief in text it gets read because it only takes a few seconds to read.
I personally will click on a friends song or read a friends comic & spend maybe a little extra time checking out their art or music online. I will even leave a comment or a like if I like it. I guess that's where my interest is... I like looking for new artist & hearing new music.
I remember when I first started using the internet back in the late 90s & over all the experience was a lot more social then it is now. I had pen pals all over the world & as junking & messy my art was at the time I got a lot more interactions. It was thrilling to meeting new people via the internet back then, but now people are more cautious to whom they meet on the internet. They might check out someone's art or music without ever telling the artist just because its easier to say nothing or maybe they think it would be bothersome to to the artist if they wrote them.
These are some social media odd times. I wish things were different but these days you have to be careful. Its sad & true.

More amazing clouds coming from the east. Looks like the next clear sky will be on wednesday in the morning. Thursday is estimated to be mostly sunny & friday is clear with slight chance of rain. I will be trying to get some moon shots on friday. Cross your fingers. Also these radar images are not detailed enough. They only show clouds in higher regions. A lot of the main cloud coverage is very low.

At least ever monday & friday someone other then my self will get the lucky opportunity to hear & see the music I make. So... yes get ready to watch some live action music videos of Eshniner.

I mostly only have been interested in Nintendo games all my life. I like the challenges & the pergressive difficulty they provide as well as the style & I have always stuck with action adventure. Mario Kart is really the only sports related game i've ever gotten into but as much as I love all the Mario Kart games, I excluded them from my list because Mario Kart would take up 6 positions on this list.... so here is my top 10 games of all time.
10: Contra. NES
9: Mega Man 1. NES
8: Star Fox. N64
7: Zelda-Link to the Past. SNES
6: Super Metroid. SNES
5: Star Wars - X-Wing. PC
4: Minecraft. PC
3: Super Mario World. SNES
2: Super Mario Brothers 3. NES
1: Zelda-Link's Awakening DX. GBC

I have been working on quite a few new songs. At least 7 songs but have yet to record anything. Life has been quite busy with maintaining a stable foundation. It is all good are fare & recording time is just around the corner. Keep on the look out for my next musical single. Cheers!

What's the deal with humans? Some of them I just don't understand nor do I want to understand, but when these "off the beaten track humans" start to engage me in some conversation that makes me want run for my life... then I start to think.... go away. Being kind hearted can only last so long & when events start to repeat & form some sort of disruption of my happy go lucky self... then its time to stop this bull crap.
I like dogs... they don't talk.

Where are the time travelers? Recently in the news people have come up with the genius idea to look for key historical events on the internet that mention these key events prior to the event happening in the hope to prove time travelers are real. There are sites that would never come up on search engines. On google the only way searches work is if the site has been posted on another site via a link. So even if there is internet proof it is most likely in a place that is unsearchable, but hopefully time travelers are lazy & would post information on a public forum such as facebook.
I must say I really enjoy the Kroft brothers tv shows. Lydsville is my favorite followed by Land of the Lost. Some of the writers for the original Star Trek wrote for land of the lost. I also wish Far out Space Nuts was out on DVD.

How can you put all your eggs in one basket and say the only life in the entire universe that exists is on planet earth? I would think if that's all you want to believe, then you are not even giving humanity the chance to even to gain enough technology to possibly become what I think is most inevitable outcome. It might take us another 3000 years or more or less, but sooner or later we will be leaving earth for some reason, unless we destroy our selves.
Sooner or later I would think any sort of developing intelligence would ultimately become a space faring race.
The universe is the oldest thing to ever exist & to say that earth is the only habitable planet in the entire universe is quite a statement. A statement that I would find incredible boring & as said in the movie contact... " An incredible waist of space."
Why would you even want to believe that Earth is only planet with a race of self awareness, intelligence & the ability to adapt?
As of February 2014 - 1,075 planets in 813 planetary systems including 178 multiple planetary systems have been found & the numbers are rising everyday.
We may not be a deep space faring race now, but we are not the kind of people to take things at face value. We want to understand where we come from and who we are & it seems we are still struggling with the question of our own identities & we will continue looking for the truth to these simple questions.
All I know is... I want to believe the truth & I have yet to find it. We will never be the kind to just sit back & not question. As long as we have self awareness & passion for life that is all we need to continue.
The truth is out there....

I recently started a star trek voyager twitter account & I post pictures with dumb subtitles from the show. I started it as a kind of test, to learn more about twitter & following large amounts of random people & I'm getting followers faster then my personal account.
I find it dumb that all I do is take screen shots & post them with sub titles & it grasps peoples attention more so then anything else i've put on the internet. Its seems the more effort you put into something its to more difficult to grasp.
Maybe its a time aspect... if what you see on the internet takes more then a few seconds to think about... then most will just ignore it or move on. On my band camp site most of the listening times are just a few seconds & rarely do they listen to a full song.
I find this information a downer. Grow an attention span people.

I hate it when you loose a friend to pitiful little things. It just seems so boring on the grand scale of things... I guess you just can't win them all.
I am very likable in person well at least I think so... I guess I can understand how my internet persona can be a pain when you read something like "Seven of Butt" or "moo years day" on twitter, however its not all that thin of subject matter on the other side of the mobile device. What else is there really to tell a bunch of people you don't want to get to know... other then complete bull shit & hopefully its at least funny bull shit.
I guess I just wish things were different. I guess things were not as internet cool as I thought... as I said... you can't win them all. However the internet is super cool & you can't let these little interactions get you down.
I love Star Trek B-) !!!
I'm getting to a point where I am not seeing the point in doing anything creative in the hopes that I inspire someone. Maybe I am going at it all wrong... & I don't think I am, but as a song writer, I would like to hope he or she has fans / a listening audience. I personally hardly see anything from others in the ways of "getting totally giddy" about my creative side. Maybe my music does suck, but i've heard music by friends of mine & they make terrible music & they have more fans. No one seems to go out of their way to hear my latest recording. I do my best & share enthusiasm about others work such as friends of mine whom write, record, draw & paint & its all like good in the moment & at the same time you try to be nice even when what they made is horrific & at the same time some are beyond amazing!
I just don't get it... I know my music is not what a lot of people want to hear. Its the kind of stuff that takes an acquired taste. My newest album recordings are more contemporary then ever & its most likely going to take a while to catch on... even for 30mins in some teenagers attention span... & that 30mins might be 30 years from now... these recordings of mine just seem like... its all just dust in the wind. Even the music that is offered for free download, is having a hard time getting heared. The internets content search is exspanding everyday & for one person to come across my silly album is mostly due to random chance. No one is searching for the word Eshniner. Eshniner is not even a real word in any language.
So pretty much I'm writing music for my walls to hear.
