When your town has a street festival, but for some reason doesn't close down the street to cars, and the Google Street View Car drives down that street...

#PeakAmerica ;D

There's even a stage with a band!

And the seats to watch them play are across the street. ;D ;D



They'd better hope Dokken doesn't drive through on the back of a semi!



It's not so obvious in the video (probably by design) but in this still you can see that Don's weight issues weren't brand new at Monsters '88.  Now that I think about it, Day 1's temps may have been part of why they were so off sync Day 2.

Bet I can guess how the role of "truck driver" was cast.   #CDLnotrequired.



Yeah but Wild Mick Brown and Pilson had probably been doing coke all night for days at Monsters of Rock

Apparently the Apple Maps street view vans will be driving around Butler County tomorrow.

NPR did a story last week on how Google Maps came about.  It was accelerated by the Iraq War because CNN bought the rights to the technology around 2003 to have go-to imagery for its 24-hour coverage.  Then Google bought it from the little-known startup in 2004 or 2005 for a ridiculous sum.
