This is my "curated content" blog which is mostly reblogs of stuff I like but occasionally some other stuff I find across the internet as well. Normally everything comes out of the queue, six posts a day, in the evening.
I have an etsy shop where I sell pins of some of my pixel art, as well as vintage women's and men's clothing - please check it out!
The shop has its own tumblr too actually: penguincoast.tumblr.com (my main blog used to be called penguincoast but I switched the names in case you're confused)
The Kuba Komet. This is the Kuba Komet from Germany. The KUBA Corporation manufactured the Komet from 1957 to 1962 in Wolfenbuttel, West Germany. These were kind of an early version of the entertainment center, as there were 8 speakers embedded in this along with a record player, a radio, and a TV tuner in the bottom cabinet. For an extra charge you could also get a early version of a type of tape recorder and a Remote control with UHF tuner. Another cool feature of these sets was the ability to swivel the top as you can see in the above picture. Komets were not small by any means. The set stands approx. 5′ 7″ tall, it’s over 7′ wide and weighs about 300 pounds. The cost then was approximately $700 – $1,250.00 US.
Weighing 15.5 tons, this iron meteorite is the largest ever found in the United States and the sixth-largest in the world. The smooth surface melted during its blazing entry into the atmosphere, while the pits formed on the Earth’s surface.
The Willamette Meteorite was originally located within the Upper Willamette Valley of Oregon. It was revered as a spiritual being that has healed and empowered the people of the valley by the Clackamas Indians who occupied the region.
