Out of This World Theme Brothel to go Operational

This is one of those stories that just makes you kinda grin. Then shake your head in bemusement. And then for others, they get all disgusted with the very notice of sex for sell. But its making the rounds and what the hell, I decided to go ahead and post it on my blog as well. Any excuse to post sexy looking female aliens will not be passed up I have decided as a New Years resolution for 2012.

Seems like there is the brothel owner by the name of Dennis Hof who is age 65 and runs the Moonlite Bunny Ranch. He is friends with the infamous "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss who has been selected by Hof to design some of the costumes. Her "new" title is that of Chief Alien Design Queen.

The location for this Alien Cathouse is near the infamous Aera 51 which is 90 miles northwest of sin city.

And the type of clients Hof is hoping to attract to this new brothel? quote: The important details regarding the working women are still being hashed out, such as whether or not to paint the women green to resemble Orion Slave Girl characters from Star Trek.

However Hof tells CBS Las Vegas that for the clients he is reaching out “to everyone, all the Star Wars fans and Trekkies,” and cater to all flavors of geek fantasy. end quote.

Heck, he even wants to get Star Trek icon Captain James T. Kirk (aka William Shatner) to get onboard with the project.

LORCS Field gets a Update

The Lubbock RC Oddball Society is getting a face lift this Christmas season!

Ricky got himself a tractor and has been busy! From the pictures, one can see more dirt added to the "mountain with a tunnel in it." The "Ocean" is being dugged out. But next to the tank battlefield is a RC car/truck race course and that is located in between the north/south model airplane runway and the battlefield.

Plan is for a stand to be set up between the race track and the "ocean" for the models to watch their cars and or model boats.

Reaganite Republican: I Hereby Endorse Newt Gingrich for President of th...

Being a follower of the Reaganite Republican blog, I found this article most interesting. Like the RR blog, I was hoping that Michele Bachmann would have done better than she has. Problems with her campaign staff maybe not supporting her enough, providing some new ideas for her to present to the American public, is the root problem with her. My state's governor Rick Perry shot himself too many times in the foot. Like Sarah Palin, he will have to step out of the political limelight for a election cycle to rebuild his image. Ron Paul has good ideas for the homeland, but his foreign policy ideas - I just cannot support.

As of this date, it looks to me that Newt Gingrich will be the GOP nominee for 2012. Newt has said that he wants former UN ambassador John Bolton to be his Secretary of State (that's good!). Now we just need to see who will become the second banana (i.e. the Vice President nominee). For that slot, I still have high hopes for either Michele Bachmann or Pick Perry.

Walk Through That Door by Madison Rising

Discovered this music group from a link posted on The Jawa Report. Music video "Walk Through That Door" shows the sacrifice that our wonderful veterans go through to have that wonderful "Welcome Home Again" moment. Watch it and then check out the groups own website. Both links are posted below in the Ref. section.

On that website, you can listen to their new album and there is a section that shows the lyrics to each song. Below, are the lyrics to the song "Walking Through That Door" from their website. Video from YouTube below. Again, if you cannot view it on my blog, just go to YouTube to see it.


We fell in love the moment we first met
And everything was perfect in our lives
But I'm a soldier and I wont forget
The call of duty came and I went with pride
I found myself over seas, just protecting the dreams that we have
And there’s’ nothing more important than giving all I have to give

I'm fighting for the things that I believe
Its time to go my country's calling me

When I go walking through that door
I'm leaving with my head held high
I'll serve my country through this war
But I'll come back with pride

When I got home after my tour was through
I couldn't wait to take her as my wife
I asked her father if he would approve
And he said "son give her a happy life"
I found my self overjoyed when she told me a baby boy, was on the way
But my face grew pale when I picked up the mail
And saw my second call of duty came

Still fighting for the things that I believe
Its time to go my country's calling me


I love my family, but I serve my country
And I'll be the man who swore an oath to those above me
And I'll fight harder, and I won’t be martyred
And I'll make it home so all my children know me


So all my children know me
I’ll come back alive
So all my children know me I’ll come back alive.

Watch the video. I dare you not to tear up.
There is another song on that album you should hear and those lyrics are below. It's entitled: In The Days That Reagan Ruled....


Searching in the distance
For a shining city on a hill
For I was told in days of old
That it would be there still

But what I see is killin’ me
It tears right at my soul
Just enemies of liberty
Now victims they are called

The people can’t communicate
No language as a glue
And the communists in Hollywood
Who tell you what to do
But things were so much different --

In The Days That Reagan Ruled
In The Days That Reagan Ruled
In The Days That Reagan Ruled
He was the Gipper, he had the knack
He took a bullet and he still came back
In The Days That Reagan Ruled!
In The Days That Reagan Ruled!
He was an honest man with a simple dream
A dream we should hold true

When he met with Gorbachev, he stood firm and proud
Not like other men, who would’ve knelt down and bowed
All his rivals couldn’t stand the plot
But he destroyed our greatest enemy - without a single shot

Negotiate, yet dominate; peace through strength he’d say
No hostages he’d let you hold, not for a day
Things were so much different --


California was still the Golden State
Our culture we could celebrate
Our First Lady still had some class
No race-baiters talking all of their trash

In The Days That Reagan Ruled
In The Days That Reagan Ruled
Things were so much different
In The Days That Reagan Ruled
In The Days That Reagan Ruled


Tearing down an iron wall
Acting in his greatest role
Made all his critics look like fools
‘Cause even jelly beans were cool!

WizKids Games Star Trek Fleet Captains Wargame

I just heard about the new WizKids/NECA Star Trek based war game entitle: Star Trek Fleet Captains (STFC).

Designed by Mike Elliot and Ethan Pasternack, STFC is a stand alone strategic space exploration and ship-to-ship combat game.

Twenty four 3D HeroClix starship miniatures and 300 cards are included for game play. This game was released this past September.

The reason for my renewed interest in Star Trek space combat games was a friend asked to used my Star Trek minis for a demo game that was to be held in Abilene, Texas recently. When they were returned to me, I found out about the 'new' Starfleet Battles being produced in a joint venture between the Amarillo Design Bureau, Inc; and Mongoose Publication.

Their new miniature line would be made out of resin instead of metal and be slightly bigger than the original ones at 1/3788 scale. Star Fleet Miniatures have been sold by various vendors, mostly from Amarillo Design Bureau for the Star Fleet Battles and Federation Commander Games.

Quoting from website on the new line of miniatures: Under our joint venture with Mongoose, we will in November launch the new 2500 series which will be larger, have more detail, and will be done in resin instead of pewter. end quote. This series will correct some previous omissions, re-scale some of the ships (compared to each other), and make some changes that vary from subtle to profound. Check out the link below in the Ref section.

In my younger days, I enjoyed painting and collection the Star Trek miniatures from first, ADB, then later; the FASA Star Trek Starship Combat Simulator miniature line. Now the Wizkids version that is coming out is good news.

Friends 1978 Triumph Spitfire Project

My friend Ricky Taylor always come across these great vehicle deals. It was through him that I manage to get a 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport. He drives around Lubbock in his (now yellow) 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SL.

Today, he collected his latest project car - a 1978 Triumph Spitfire 1500. That's him posing next to the car while it is still in the trailer in front of his garage. His plans for this is to repaint it British racing green and to convert it over to electric power after finding a YouTube link. And all of us got to get our picture taken with us behind the steering wheel. Ricky Taylor, Tucker Mack, and myself (see top picture).

Some specifications for the Spitfire. Length - 83 inches, width - 57 inches. Height is 48 inches and has a curb weight of 1,568 pounds. The typical engine for this car was a 1,493 cc displacement motor is missing from this particular vehicle. The sportscar was designed by Giovanni Michelotti. The manufacturer was the Triumph Motor Company (also known as Leyland Motors).

Ricky had several Spitfires back in the past. As for me, I kinda like the Triumph TR 7/8. As well as Mercedes-Benz convertibles.

Biggest Dust Storm for Lubbock in Decades!

I could not believe what was about to strike us - a huge, old fashion Dust Storm. One that I have not seen since the late 1970s. In my younger days (i.e the 1960s-70s), I remember these big brown dust storms - but never lived through one that turned the sky literally 'black.' I remembered my parents telling me about that part of the dust storms from the 1930s.

Looking out one of the garage doors at Ricky's Auto Repair this afternoon, I was amazed. We had to close the doors and get everyone inside before the dust storm hit.

A strong cold front hit Lubbock county about 6pm. Visibility dropped down to between zero to less than a quarter of a mile. That zero visibility at the garage lasted about 2-3 minutes. Wind gusts as high as 74 mph.

The FAA had to evacuate the control tower at Lubbock International Airport and air traffic was directed from a backup control cneter on the ground floor.

Trees were toppled, roofs lost shingles. Rail road crossing gates bent. A small cargo plane was overturned at the airport.

The dust cloud was a by-product of the persistent drought in West Texas. Back on October 6th, the National Weather Service in Lubbock reported that there was a "high likelihood" that 2011 could be the driest on record across the South Plains.

With this blog post are some images that I took with my cell phone camera.

9,000 year old proto-civilization discovered in Saudi Arabia

Named after the site's location, the al-Maqar neolithic civilization is going to be challenging many theories about "when" civilization truely started.

Current theory is that 5,500 years ago, animals were domesticated. The al-Maqar civilization not only domisticated horses and other animals, but they also had arrowheads, scrapers, tools for spinning and weaving.

For more information, please visit the orignal Reuters article with the link below.

Quarter Scale Nieuport 28 - Being Painted Now

This is the Nieuport 28 being painted by Tabitha Tinsley - age 14, who is also a radio control model airplane pilot. She is moving away from her trainer into larger models and the Nieuport was a gift from her father Patrick Tinsley.

She is in the process of doing a first class painting job as one can tell from these pictures that she and her father recently sent me.

When more pictures become available, they will be posted. Hopefully, this bird will take flight before the West Texas Warbirds event on August 6 & 7, 2011; in Abernathy, Texas.

They are basing the paint scheme on the American WW1 fighter pilot who had the first "shark's mouth" ever painted on a warplane I'm told. I will have to dig up the historical information and post that with this article at a future date.

BIG RC model of Kawanishi H8K (Emily)

I found this cool looking video on YouTube of a Japanese World War 2 flying boat known as the Kawanishi H8K (Emily).

The full scale aircraft had a wingspan 124.67 feet and a length of 92.29 feet. Height was 30 feet. Max speed was 290 mph and a range of 4,461 miles. Crew of 10 and powered by (4) Mitsubishi Kasei 22 radial engines - 14 cylinder heads producing 1,850 horse power each.

The video was uploaded to YouTube by one SkyCaPtainJP2008 on September 15, 2009. Reading in the comments section, the model flew twice before being disposed of - sad.

The same video also shows a big Mitsubishi G4M "Betty" twin engine bomber that had a accident on landing.

USS Lone Star Shuttle Work Day

The following pictures were taken today to get our club's shuttlecraft ready to the 4th of July parade here in Lubbock, Texas.

The biggest part of this - and the focus of the pictures presented - is getting the insulation put in the ceiling and closing up the ceiling. Just doing this LOWERED the interior temperature by almost 20 degrees F! And it makes the craft look nicer too.

UPDATE July 5, 2011: Picture taken by fellow club member Alice Carey of their Ford F-150 pulling the "new" shuttlecraft in the parade.

Third Flight of My eRC B-25

This is the third flight of my eRC B-25J from Hobby Lobby. This flight, the engine cowlings are mounted and I used the retracts in flight for the very first time.

The flight to place on the evening of June 21, 2011. Ricky Taylor was using my camera as I made this flight at the Lubbock Oddball RC Society (LORCS) airfield (i.e. Ricky's backyard).

It was a hairy take-off, I almost aborted when it finally broke ground and started climbing. It looks like one of the main landing gears did not retract fully.

The Youtube links are down in the ref section. Part one is the take-off. Part two is the landing.

Starfleet Region 3 Summit Additional Pictures

Another Summit is coming to a close now and I'm exhausted! And I didn't even attend the final Sunday events either.

I put on my uniform again for the dinner last night and over the next several days, I will upload several photographs that I took with my cellphone camera.

First up is my table assignment and dinner card. There was some singing at the start and at the end. In the middle, there was the Final Mission Ceremony. A salute to friends and family members who had passed away in the previous year.

The Starfleet Marine Corps conducted nurf combat patrols in the hotel all day.

Region 3 is a compilation of all the members and chapters of STARFLEET, the International Star Trek Fan Association, Inc. It covers both Texas and Louisiana.

Slaton Air Show 2011

Rarely now days does anybody take any pictures of yours truly. So it came as a surprise that fellow WINGs Miniature Aircraft Society (WINGS MAS) club member Tom asked me to join him on a walk down the flight line - where we took each other's picture standing next to some warbirds.

Every year, the Slaton airport holds a airshow fly-in. This year, Wings MAS had a charity booth spot in the north hangar to hold a raffle of a ready to fly Hangar 9 P-51 PTS trainer with a transmitter, that was won by a young boy. The star attraction didn't show up -
a FW-190. Something to do with a broken cooling fan. Instead, I got to finally see a Hawker Sea Fury in the flesh (so to speak)! There was a fly-over of a C-47 done up in D-Day paint scheme. Turns out the the Silent Wings Museum at the Lubbock International Airport was holding a event the very same weekend!

Of course, no airshow with Warbirds is complete without a Tora, Tora, Tora re-enactment. So, I had my picture taken with both the Japanese Zero and the Japanese Kate Torpedo bomber. There was also the big yellow T-28 Trojan in US Navy paint scheme and carrying the noseart of "Maid in the USA."

When I get around to it, I'll update this posting with some additional pictures that I took of the Sea Fury.

UPDATE June 6, 2011: Here are the pictures that I took of the Airshow.
