Video: Art of the Storm

(For politics, please scroll down)

A metaphor for our times?


  1. I think it's high time we got all these RNC Establishment "gatekeepers" to the Republican nomination OUT of the conservative voter's way. RedState speaks for the RNC Establishment, NOT conservative voters. If Erick Erickson has a problem with Trump not being "conservative" enough for RedState, that's one thing. It's quite another thing if Erick Erickson thinks that "The Donald" isn't PC enough for RedState. And no honest conservative gives at rats ass about PC'ness.

    1. Titan,
      Can the GOP weather the brewing storm?

    2. They can weather it. But they'll never win another presidential election without conservatives showing up at the polls. And conservatives have NO reason to show up with the weak Tea that the Establishment has to offer..

    3. Titan,
      they'll never win another presidential election without conservatives showing up at the polls

      Does the GOP understand that FACT?

    4. If the "ratings" for the debate didn't clue them in, nothing will. All they have to do to lose "ratings" is to exclude "populists". Which is EXACTLY what they did in 2012 with Romney.

  2. btw - That storm footage is quite exceptional!

    1. Finally, someone publishes this story....thanks, AOW.
      We're nowhere near hearing the extent of the migrant crisis in Europe and it's a curiosity that the news covers other international stories but what's happening re immigration is largely not being spoken about here....and hasn't been for years in Germany, France, England, etc..

      I think it's no surprise...these truths don't support the media agenda, do they.
      Our adversaries are counting on us to ignore and deflect and not even call it for what it is. The Perfect Storm, indeed.

    2. Z,
      If I am not mistaken, the United Nations is urging Euroe to take in these migrants and assimilate them because these waves of migrants have been declared a humanitarian crisis.

      What Obama and Hillary promoted with regard to Egypt and Libya is a large part of the blame for this crisis.

      Arab Spring? Nope! Arab Winter!

  4. Wow. That reminded me of some very early Pink Floyd...

  5. Lovely AOW.. Always a surprise on Sunday.

    1. Bunkerville,
      I do strive for variety with my Sunday blog posts. :^)

  6. The time-lapse photography (I assume that's what it is, anyway) gives a good idea of the power and immensity of Nature. A very "modernesque" mid-nineteenth-century Turner painting "Seascape with Rain Cloud,"which I just happened to receive linked in an email earlier today, captures a remarkably similar Storm Event in oils.

    I didn't particularly care for the music –– or Sound Effects rather (too LOUD!) –– but at least it did capture some sense of the awe most feel while witnessing a cataclysmic weather event.

    1. FT,
      I knew that you wouldn't like the music much, but it does convey the right atmosphere (pun intended).
