How better to begin anew than with a cover?

Robyn Adele Anderson (best known by me through PMJ) has this wonderful cover of "Blue (Da Ba See)".https://youtu.be/VJvEOPvKdIU

Catch Carmen Sandiego in Google Earth

Google has partnered with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt to launch The Crown Jewels Caper, the first in a series of Carmen Sandiego games in Google Earth. It plays just like the old Carmen Sandiego PC games you remember: visit different landmarks, talk to the locals, and figure out Sandiego’s next destination from their clues.

Though the game is made for promoting the animated Netflix show, it’s still a great collaboration, combining the fun, adventurous aspect of Carmen Sandiego with the immense 3D map resources of Google Earth. The pixel art is charming, though it’s too bad the game is missing sound. I miss the “Fly by night” theme songs from the PC games that played when you’re traveling.

Still looking for your new home after Google+ shuts down?

So many options out, yet the nearest one that looks and feels like home is YouMe Social.

The site is still evolving so new features coming regularly.

Some things that aren't acceptable on the site are lovely ladies looking for a faithful loyal man , porn, spam, phishing, hate speech.

Oh, did i mention that YouMe Social is freehold?

We don't have VCs or other investors breathing down our necks wondering when the site will make money to pay them back.

https://www.youme.social ... your future home .. come join the other 1100 Google+ers there already.

Check it out and if you like it, stay; if you don't, by deleting your profile, all your content is deleted as well .. but do make sure you download it first.

PS. Do save your data on G+ as 1Gb files. The smaller the file, the faster you can upload them to …

Do you know what happened to him, Sir?

Judging by the evidence I can see, he was attacked by an unlicensed Foley artist.

How do you know they are unlicensed?

All the licensed ones have signatures...

Like Wilhelm?

Exactly. All of this is generic. You might as well have stock footage of alligators entering a river, or kookaburras laughing in an African jungle.


(With many thanks to +Alicia Smith for the rationale for being unlicensed!)

I did not know this existed. I mean, Bill Oddie's version is the one that resonates...but this tribute is pretty good with the visuals.
