Aaron Freeman, otherwise known as Gene Ween of the band Ween, is dropping his first solo album on May 8th. The album is titled “Marvelous Clouds” and is a tribute to poet/songwriter Rod McKuen. In my opinion it’s some great pop music. Give it a listen, the entire thing is streaming below. When you are done give Aaron Freeman a call (or text) at (609) 542-0751 and let him know what you think.
Sure, I too am a little tired of the all the time-lapse photography on the internet these days.

NASA has recently published highest resolution image of the Earth from space ever. The 64-megapixel image of Earth was captured by the VIIRS instrument on NASA’s most recently launched Earth-observing satellite, the Suomi NPP. You can read more about the Suomi NPP at its official website.

As always, click for a larger photo and more can be found on my flickr page. I wasn’t the only one to notice this castle in the sky though. These other Denver bloggers caught photos too:
Look west 30 to 60 minutes after sunset when the Sun has dipped 6 to 16 degrees below the horizon. If you see luminous blue-white tendrils spreading across the sky, you’ve probably spotted a noctilucent cloud. Although noctilucent clouds appear most often at high latitudes–e.g. places like Scandinavia and Canada–they have been sighted as far south as Colorado, Utah and Virginia.
