You are in the current BP disaster ROV number 42. Number 41 is here.

Please DO NOT Rec this diary, rather REC THE MOTHERSHIP instead. She needs your love to stay afloat.

Please be kind to kossacks with bandwidth issues. Please do not post images or videos. Again, many thanks for this.

For a description of the mothership/ROV liveblogging process, check out this thread.

BP put up a video explaining the LMRP procedure and the future plans.

BP has a good diagram of the cutting process.

Crashing Vor has posted an important diary listing things you can do to help the Gulf Coast.

Breaking News:

Please DO NOT Rec this diary, Rec the Mothership here.

Here is a tutorial on the sources of pressure on the well

Here is an excellent image of what is supposed to exist under the wellhead. Take the comments from Halliburton with a grain of salt since this is part of their "blame those two" PR campaign.

Admiral of the Sea Mix

  1. Admiral of the Sea - Grant Hart.

    I am an Admiral of the Sea.
    I'm know from far and wide inside the Admiralty.
    What's this ahead in front of me?
    I am an Admiral of the Sea.

    I am an Admiral of the Land.
    There are many men and armies under my command.
    When things are getting out of hand,
    I am an Admiral of the Land.

  2. Back to the Sea - The Thermals.

    but i'm turning around
    and i'm gonna crawl
    back to the ocean i know
    back to the ocean i need
    back to the sea

    judge us now
    Lord, won't you judge us now?
    we know exactly who we are
    we know exactly what we do
    i'm gonna crawl back to the sea

  3. Reject All American - Bikini Kill.

    sports car

    BP Incorporated

  4. The End of You - Sleater-Kinney.

    I am not the Captain.
    What a cruel, cruel myth.

    For when we hit the roughest seas,
    we'll need all we can get.

  5. Submission - Sex Pistols.

    It's a mystery
    under the water
    under the sea.

    I can't tell you
    what I found.

  6. When the Levee Breaks - Led Zeppelin and Neil Young.

    When the levee breaks
    Lord, you've got to move.

  7. Biloxi - Jimmy Buffett.

    And the sun will set from off towards New Orleans.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
