Satanic ceremony? Superstitious ritual? Or just some fun on a sunny day? Guess. Just guess!

During the Full Frame Film Festival yesterday I worked in the booth at Carolina Theater's Fletcher Hall. It was the first time that I got to see 35 mm projected. This was a shadow on the floor during the screening of THE HEART OF THE GAME.

I won't say exactly why I found myself in the parking lot of Wendy's just now. But I did. It happened, yes, I admit it. Anyway, something caught my eye as I was in the parking lot. Something getting all excited about their big streetlight, way, way, way up there in the air. But it wasn't any ordinary moth. It was a huge Mothra moth! Or butterfly? Am I confused?

To be clear, I'm not sure why the creature suddenly got tired and was laying down and being all still for me while I took its picture. I hope it is not sick. I'm thinking that it's okay because it was flying just seconds before it started hanging out on the ground. But still, why would it do this unless it was sick? Anyway, I hope my poking does not look too menacing. I feel bad that I poked it. But I did.

This installment is from one of my best friends who was gracious enough to let me post this. This is footage from the Kilauea volcano in the Volcano National Park on the Big Island of Hawaii. This movie has sound. It is mostly the wind.

Kilauea has been erupting slowly since 1983. From some Googling, I think she must have been standing in the caldera which is a crater. Most of this volano is under sea level.

I especially like the last few seconds of this video when the cooled lava crust is shown up close. She said that the surface was sharper than glass which made for a treacherous hike. Boiling rock, man. It's serious stuff.

Special thanks for this.
