Videos Of ‘Blue Angels’ Missing-Man Fly By At John McCain’s Funeral!

by Anura Guruge






‘Missing Man’ fly by is always special — evocative and cool.

I heard they were going to do one for John McCain and I wanted to see it. I knew I could find at least one video on YouTube. I found these three on YouTube and wanted to share with you.

Wow. I checked the ‘Blue Angels’ Website. They have issues. It is way out-of-date. Not what I expected.

Nikon Z6 Piqued My Interest, Rumored Canon EOS R Full-Frame Mirrorless Has Blown My Socks OFF.

Click to ENLARGE. From “The New Camera” @: thenewcamera.com


The Nikon Z6 announced last week had me quite interested, but I acknowledged that I was going to wait to see what Canon was going to rejoin with. Well, it is still rumor and conjecture, BUT I think there is some fire behind this smoke.

IF the rumors are true we should get an announcement next week! Wow.

Again, as with the Nikon Z6, much of my interest is in the possibility of getting my hands on a broader selection of affordable lenses — albeit via an adapter.

This Canon, like the Nikon Z6, is unlikely to be available much before Christmas 2018 — and I will NOT preorder. Have been burned too many times. Will wait for the second batch of production units. By then I would have gone past the 30,000 photo mark on my now 18-month old Sony a7 II. 30K is a respectable number of shots with any camera.

Stay tuned.

AGT Electric Violin Sensation, ‘Brian King Joseph’, Tattoos & Neuropathy.

by Anura Guruge


IF you have not seen him, PLEASE check out this video.

You will thank me. He is GOOD. Very Good. YouTube has MORE.



Google “tattoos nerve damage”. I did after watching him. This is what I found. Check it out. Click to ENLARGE,


I liked him and was impressed by his virtuosity from the very first time I saw him on “America’s Got Talent” (AGT) 2018, way back — a few months ago.

He has now made it to the semi-finals and we are happy. We rooted for him. He is beyond good. Extremely gifted.

While his music & talent should speak for itself, from his very first appearance MUCH has been made of his nerve pain and nerve damage (i.e., neuropathy). AGT milks it, given that they love to add color and contours to the performers.

So, I was watching him, intently, the other night and was struck by the extent of his tattoos. He has a lot of tattoos on his arm.

This got me thinking. When I was writing my “Central Pain” book I came to appreciate that nerve damage and nerve pain typically occurs because something ‘major’ triggered it. I got to wondering if all of his tattoos MIGHT HAVE HAD something to do with his never issues. I had never thought of that connection before.

Well I Googled and you can see the results above.

I am BY NO MEANS saying that this might have been a case. It is something to THINK about. Something to look into. IF I was him I would be asking my doctors … ‘could it in any way have been triggered by my tattoos?’

Look into it. Stranger things do happen.
