Close Call Asteroid

Here be some kinda doom…

I may be pretty late at seeing this but i apologise i have been at work.

It seems there may have been certain doom tommorow (Monday) as there has been a giant asteroid spotted heading our way.
The space rock is going to just miss us but will reach within 11,000 miles of the surface. Apparently the telegraph states it as coming ’23 times closer than the moon’ to me that doesn’t make sense, but anyway the asteroid will reach within 11,000 miles of the surface which is close enough to be spotted by some telescopes.

Even if it did enter the atmospere an asteroid expert has said ‘We are certain that it will miss us, but if it did enter the atmosphere, an asteroid this size would mostly burn up in a brilliant fireball, possibly scattering a few meteorites.’ Which is good by me. This asteroid was only spotted wednesday in New Mexico and is only between 10 and 50 yards wide.

Another asteroid has been spotted to come by on November 8th and from what experts say it is 400 metres wide weighing 50 million tons and is expected to fly within the moons orbit, this will pass by at a distance of 201,000 miles thankfully. This one is the largest object to approach us so close that folks know about.

Phew…

Article read from Here!

To be honest though this original artice does make with the fear-mongering.

Heavy metal or no metal at all

Had to click on a link earlier which read ‘Heavy Metal not just music its a religion’. It made me think of Manowar, who are awesome and this is precisely how they think. They believe Heavy metal is a way of a life and much more than music and it seems some people are going along with it now. I love some metal but this was just funny.

Just saw this on metal hammer along with another article.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father,
Who art in metal,
Lemmy be thy name,

Thy hairs be spun,
Moshpits to come,
At Hammerfest as it was in Wales,

Give us this day our daily death metal,
And forgive us our bodyslams,
As we forgive those who bodyslam against us,

And lead us not into Christianity,
But deliver us from Cliff Richard,
For thine is Metallica, Megadeth and Gojira,

Slayer forever,
Amen.

Haha
The article i looked at on there was http://www.metalhammer.co.uk/news/independent-on-sunday-asks-will-metal-be-a-religion/

Take a look at the guardians article on it.http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/this-britain/census-2011-heavy-metals-not-music-its-a-religion-1886350.html Praise Halford!

Also i didn’t realise Sikhs were a race and not just a religious people.

I see this all as good fun and i’m not too bothered. But would rather have more people be honest. That way it would show the government the religious majority or maybe the non- religious majority. Hmmm.

Go and listen to Manowar. Metal!

Town Mill

The town mill is/was the best place for local bands and upcoming music and now it seems it is now time for the place to close.

I stopped drinking a few years ago so i’m not bothered about the beer side of it all but i went for the bands, the atmosphere, the friends, a place to get a away from the other places inhabited by narrow minded folks and for memories.

Such memories as playing there with a couple of different bands, singing along to friends bands and watching new guys who i’d never heard of before.

When i heard that the mill was closing i thought, ‘what about all the bands and the guys who run the place and live there’. What is going to happen to those. The people who ran the place have been lovely and kind to everyone for so long and they have been tolerant and giving and now we can give back. There is going to be a gig on sunday and its supposed to either help keep the place running and/or to give Mr Kev and his family and maybe the staff some money. I say don’t just give it to keep the place running, give your money to say thanks to him and the staff for all the times you wanted to get away from the world or watch a few bands whilst having a drink with your friends. Think of your life without the mill, maybe your friends would be different, maybe your life would be different. So just think before you give.

Here are a couple of links

There are many videos of gigs at the town mill on youtube.
Here is 8 seconds of my old band playing there. Short and funny.

Thanks for reading, hope some of you guys can make it on sunday.

Bad Universe

I’m going to make this short. I watched the first episode of Bad Universe today and loved it. Its such a clever show and very entertaining just like any show that makes things go boom.

Phil Plait is also excellent in this and presents everything in chunks which your brain can feed on quite delightfully.

So yeah watch it, just a suggestion. Its too good to just pass on by.
The fate of the world may be in your hands.

Boom (Asteroid Doom)

Here is a sneak peaky thing from youtube.

Now off to amazon to buy his book.

Death from the skies!

Asteroids

Just spotted this on http://news.uk.msn.com/odd-news/features/articles.aspx?cp-documentid=154628674.
Its about how two asteroids passed within our orbit last wednesday. I think its the first time i have actually noticed something like this on msn and apparently its the first time NASA has seen two pass within 24 hours. Awesome.

Nasa has revealed that two asteroids passed within the moon and our planet’s orbit on Wednesday.

Both objects were identified at the weekend by the Nasa-funded Catalina Sky Survey near Tucson in the US state of Arizona.

The first asteroid, dubbed 2010 RX30, was about 65 feet in diameter and flew past at a distance of 154,000 miles at 9.51am.

The second, called 2010 RF12, was roughly two-thirds the size of its companion and was estimated to pass within 49,088 miles of Earth a few hours later.

Neither posed a risk to the planet, but scientists said it was rare to witness two such objects coming so close to Earth within such a short space of time.

“This is the first time we’ve seen (two) combined within a 24-hour period but that’s probably because we don’t know everything that is out there,” said Lindley Johnson, executive of the Near-Earth Object programme at Nasa’s headquarters in Washington, according to the Daily Telegraph.

In July, Nasa experts gave details of an asteroid measuring more than 600 yards in diameter that has a one-in-a-thousand chance of colliding with Earth in 2182.

Such a collision would create more damage than that of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima.
