Mother Gray Whale Lifts Her Calf to See Humans

A mother gray whale lifted up her calf, seemingly to help it get a better view of the excited onlookers, and we caught it all on camera.

The gray whales in San Ignacio Lagoon frequently approach small tourist boats, seeking the human interaction. While they could easily avoid the people, whose small boats are not allowed to closely approach whales, they actually seem to enjoy making contact.

Laguna San Ignacio is on the Pacific coast of Mexico's Baja peninsula and is the destination for hundreds of gray whales, who migrate annually to the region from their feeding grounds in the Arctic. Here, where the water is shallow and warm, they give birth to their young. It lies within El Vizcaino Biosphere Reserve and is the gray whale's last undisturbed nursing and breeding ground, largely thanks to an environmental victory in 2000 that stopped the development of an industrial salt plant.

Whale watching here is highly regulated, with limits on how many boats can be on the water, how long they can stay, and how close they can get; rather than closely approaching the whales, they must idle their engine and wait for the whales to approach the vessel, which is a common occurrence.

Sympathy for the Devil is also the title of a producer's edit of a 1968 film by Jean-Luc Godard whose own original version is called One Plus One. The film, a depiction of the late 1960s American counterculture, also featured the Rolling Stones in the process of recording the song in the studio. On the filming, Jagger said in Rolling Stone: "... [it was] very fortuitous, because Godard wanted to do a film of us in the studio. I mean, it would never happen now, to get someone as interesting as Godard. And stuffy. We just happened to be recording that song. We could have been recording 'My Obsession.' But it was 'Sympathy for the Devil,' and it became the track that we used

Verse 1
Its like Eminem and Dr. Dre
If I loved you more I might be gay
And when I'm feeling down
You know just what to say
You my homie, Yeah you know me
And if you ever need a wingman
I'd let any girl blow me off
Cus you're more important than the rest
I confess, I'm a mess
If I'm not hanging with my BFF
You know its true, you my male boo,
Now sing the chorus with me if you're feeling the same way too.

Bromance, nothing really gay about it
Not, that there's anything wrong with being gay
Bromance, SHouldn't be ashamed or hide it
I love you in the most heterosexual way.

Verse 2
Hold me
To a promise that I"ll be the kind of the friend that in the end
Will always keep you company
Because when the world gets tough
And times get hard
I will always love you, I'll be your bodyguard
Cus you're my bestie, and if you test me
I'll prove it time and time again, I got your back until the end
A brotha from anotha motha never knew how much I loved ya
Till i started singing this song... huh?

Bromance, nothing really gay about it
Not, that there's anything wrong with being gay
Bromance, SHouldn't be ashamed or hide it
I love you in the most heterosexual way.

Now that I told you how I feel
Hope you feel the same way too
BUT if you dont, this song was just a joke
BUT if you do, I LOVE YOU

Bromance, nothing really gay about it
Not, that there's anything wrong with being gay
Bromance, SHouldn't be ashamed or hide it
I love you in the most heterosexual way.

Neil Young on The Johnny Cash Show

The first half of this clip is all over YouTube, but I couldn't find the second song of Neil's two-song set anywhere. So here it is, from the Feb. 22, 1971 episode of "The Johnny Cash Show," the full Neil Young performance featuring "The Needle and the Damage Done" and the previously-missing number (and one of my personal favorite Neil tunes), "Journey Through The Past."
