Happy Birthday to one of my favorite vocalists. I know he's not "rock" but no one else sounds like Michael Franks.  Great tunes to take things down a notch in the evening. Enjoy!

HURRICANE IVAN Anniversary (video)

#caymanislands #hurricaneivan #rockfile
Nine years ago today, we began to dig our way out of what Hurricane Ivan brought to the Cayman Islands.  The islands had not had a direct hit in 80 years and no one expected Ivan to head our way. But, instead of turning north at Jamaica, the storm hit the islands with full Category 5 force.  For 36 hours (Sept 11-12, 2004), winds exceeded 150 miles an hour, gusts to 220mph.  Our jet ski wound up in a tree down the road, our car was never found. (Thank goodness for insurance!)  

It was the longest 36 hours of my life. And I am thankful for every day I have had after!

I had recently moved from these condos. Most of the two story units just disappeared.

My friend Brian filmed this on the 12th
He has more on his YouTube page.

ROBOCOP First Official Trailer (video)

 #robocop #movietrailer #rockfile
I am a huge fan of the original movie but not the sequels or TV shows/series. Although the first movie is showing it's age, it is still a gritty commentary/satire on corporate America. Hopefully, José Padilha's version of the story will be entertaining. Remakes are never as good but the cast is great and the trailer is not too shabby!

MIRROR'S EDGE in Real Life (video)

 #mirrorsedge #parkour #rockfile
To be honest, I only played the demo of the first Mirror's Edge. News of a sequel did not even register on my radar until this fan film was released as a tribute to the original game.

And here is the trailer for the upcoming Mirror's Edge 2:

Have you played the first one? Going to get the second one? Parkour anyone?
