60s surf


On this day in music history: April 12, 1966 - Musician Jan Berry, one half of the surf music duo Jan & Dean is involved in a serious car accident in Beverly Hills, CA. While driving to a business meeting in his Corvette Stingray, crashes into the back of a parked truck on Whittier Drive. Having recently split from Jill Gibson, his girlfriend of the last seven years and under the stress managing the group, Berry becomes distracted and loses control of his car. Most ironically, the incident mirrors the scenario painted by Jan & Dean’s 1964 hit “Dead Man’s Curve” (#8 Pop), and the scene of the accident is located in very close proximity to that infamous stretch of roadway. Berry suffers severe head injuries and is in a coma for more than two months. When he finally awakens on June 16, 1966, he begins the long and painful process of recovery having sustained brain damage and partial paralysis. By the early 70’s, Berry has recovered enough to begin recording and performing with his partner Dean Torrence. In February of 1978, a film about the duo titled “Deadman’s Curve” (starring Richard Hatch and Bruce Davison) airs on the CBS television network, depicting Berry’s accident and road to recovery. As a result of the head trauma he receives in the accident, Jan Berry suffers from seizures for the rest of his life, passing away from one as a result on March 26, 2004 just eight days before his 63rd birthday. Jan & Dean’s single “Dead Man’s Curve” is inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame in 2008.

Ball Pythons are not pet rocks!

People often like to say all ball pythons do is sit around in holes and do nothing else, and the only time they begin to move is when their husbandry is incorrect or they aren’t being fed correctly. This is just not true. Appropriate enrichment encourages natural behaviors including movement.

Temperatures from each enclosure vary slightly but range between 88-92 degree hotspots, 78 degree cool ambient, and 84-86 degree warm ambient. Humidity is regularly between 60-65%.

No one “surfs” looking for meals, and no one misses meals unless in shed.
