Overnight Open Thread (30 Jan 2016)
— CDR M

Ruling class blues.

I'll note that an integral part of Progressive mythology is the struggle. Despite being in charge for close to a century, Progressives still think of themselves as an insurgent minority at war with their oppressive overlords. Elizabeth Warren is worth millions, yet she spends her time in the Senate ranting about the one percent. Her neighbors in the one percent cheer her on. It's false consciousness.
Pay Gap

How about Hollywood and the White House lead by example on this pay gap BS. They won't. Just like they don't do things to lower their carbon footprint and have their bodyguards carry no guns. They just want you miserable while they live as they want.

Outrun a T-Rex?

Could you outrun a hungry Tyrannosaur? I don't know. If you believe Jurassic World, a woman in heels can outrun a T-Rex.

Bass Lines

Noisy Neighbors

God I hated living in an apartment complex, especially when they went and allowed section 8 folks in as they didn't give a shit about rules and such. Man gets revenge on noisy neighbors with an Arduino System that automatically blasts loud music back at them.

Refugee Ages

6' tall "unaccompanied minor" refugee in Sweden raises questions. Didn't we see the same thing last summer with the border crossers here?

In related news, this is what happens when your government fails to protect you and you continue to ignore the problem. 200 masked men in Stockholm station target and beat migrants after migrant youth gangs wreak havoc at station.

Snow News Bloopers

Bernie Sanders

If Bernie does not understand the issue with Hillary's emails, he's not fit for office. No Bernie, the State Department emails are not 'personal'; they are 'national'.

MSM

Journalists scared to criticize Trump. If only the GOPe had learned this a long time ago. Play tough with the media and they'll "watch their words" more carefully around you. Seriously though, whether it's Trump or someone other than the "D" candidate, the MSM will not be fearful and strike often with BS reports. They are more fearful of their own masters and what will happen if they do not do their bidding.

Spaceballs: The Schwartz Awakens

Oh yes. Mel Brooks' 'Spaceballs' sequel is a go.

Cat Video

Tonight's ONT brought to you by why you should probably stop worrying about the 2016 Election because these seven things suggest the end of the World is nigh:

17 I don't know. If you believe Jurassic World, a woman in heels can outrun a T-Rex. Meh. In Hollywood, people outrun cars, women outrun men, women can beat up most men, leading scientists and doctors are all blacks and women. If Hollywood were to be believed, the only use for white men is as straight men, criminals and idiots who, though stupid and unskilled, do nothing but thwart the great intentions and potential genius of the more powerful women and smarter urbanites. Hollywood doesn't paint a picture of make-believe, Hollywood exists in the world of "impossible to believe".

28 Sorry DangerGirl. I used to get infections a lot when I lived in Houston. Boils and throat infections, several times a year each. It was awful. Colorado seems to be more of an influenza and pneumonia place. But my immune system is better able to shake off the latter.

37 "Ruling Class Blues:" A conservative believes in government that is as small as possible. That point is non-negotiable. So when the author keeps ranting about the conservative establishment, who the hell is he talking about?!? Does he think there's a majority of Republicans in D.C. eager to cut the government? If that were true, the bureaucracy would be half the size it is now. And as I said, if they don't believe that, then they aren't conservatives. This seems to be a point of continual confusion among the alt-right: the inability to identify actual conservatives, as opposed to the many posers out there. It's almost like the alt-right doesn't know anything about conservatism...

38 AHCC is Active Hexose Correlated Compound. Japanese make it from mushrooms. Some say it has cancer fighting capabilities but no independent studies confirm this. Some lab studies indicate it may have immunostimulatory effects. I know I haven't really gotten sick since I started taking it last summer. On a trip to NYC last Nov, my wife and kids got sick and I didn't (as did many others on the bus). Could be luck, could be I washed my hands more, who knows.

Which, come to think of it, is probably a sign of the Apocalypse in and of itself. Drinking . . . not enough, or too much? And why is Paul Ryan pounding out bass lines? That's probably yet another sign of the Apocalypse.

And this is done when I go out and when I come back 30 seconds later. It could be 2 am and she will do it. Anything beyond hi she sees as an opening to hit me up for something. She is being evicted at the end of this month for non payment of rent. The landlord was old and sick and was scared to evict because she is black. He died and his son took over and took her to court. Any non payment over a year old, the court would not order her to pay. So, the landlord lost thousands of dollars. And tho she has driven me crazy, I am worried about what the new tennants will be like. These apts have no insulation. She didnt blast music but she talks so loud and constantly and is always fighting on the phone. She never shuts the fuck up. So so Hwd - look at me! look at me! Hate that type of behavior.

Originally I had intended to make muffins, but I hate using the muffin tins.  So I baked it in the 9" square cornbread pan.  It is easier to clean, at least.

185 The one thing I really like about Gump is the way it portrayed the Boomer generation via his girlfriend (what was her name??), who's a complete flake, falling for every stupid idea and fad from 1965 to her deathbed. Posted by: qdpsteve at January 30, 2016 10:55 PM (ntObR) Jenny, who was inferred in the movie to have been sexually abused by her widowed, alcoholic father during her childhood. I believe that is why she tended to fall for every stupid idea.

195 Carlson's Trump article was mostly good ... though going public with the raw Trump comment is not nice.  And he left the "schlonging" term as if it really was a sexist attack, not a term used of Ferraro's loss, shortly after she died.  It's a legit term. 

But Tucker is correct, why has no one else been able or willing to take on these big issues so boldly ... the Clinton's sex attacks, the criminal element of the illegals, the need to pause letting in unvetted Muslims (even Bill Maher agrees on that)?

Alleged conservatives are as herd like as the left at times.  They have their own Bill Nye or Neil D' Tyson, who make them feel smart about not so conservative positions.  And most of media and many blogs hate Trump and work to destroy him.  The big issues are border control and trade, as those are swamping US and will change the country if not stopped (or it may be too late).

That 14 year old "kid" must be 25, like many of the illegals Obama was covertly busing around the country.  Yet no one was making waves or doing anything except giving Obama a promise not to shut down government, and scolding the tea party.  Our chickens are not yet home to roost, but maybe they are coming, but not the ones Rev.

217 Also weft-cut, there's more than one way to tell a story. True, most stories have a protagonist who's an example to *emulate.* BUT... you can also tell a great satirical/comedy (or horror) story with a protagonist who's an example to *avoid at all costs.* "Where's Poppa?" from 1970, written/directed by Carl Reiner, is another example. His #1 problem: a mindbendingly clingy, ruinous, crazy, unthinking Jewish mother. How does the protag, played by George Segal, *finally* solve his problem? By finally giving in, crawling into her bed, and SLEEPING WITH HER at the very, very end of the film. Not kidding, check it out. Very dark.

I think that would fall under the category of Tragedy. No protags in tragedies.

And, opinion though it may be, tragedies are inferior to narratives with a plot. Tragedies are found in almost every culture, but a plotted narrative is one of the great parts of our western heritage.

252 qdpsteve, 'way back up there somewhere: if you could own for free, one pristine/perfect/new model of ANY car EVER manufactured, which would you take? Without giving his any serious thought, it occured to me (hardly for the first time) that I should never have sold my first car, 1968 Mustang. Saw some kids in one just like it a few years back, stopped 'em and asked, yep, 1968. I probably wouldn't've taken good enough care of it. But if I had one pristene, new, well... Hello and good night, folks. Sweet dreams of funny movies and good bass lines.

265 Japan has ordered its military to be ready to destroy any missile fired by North Korea that threatens the country, local media reported, as concerns mount that Pyongyang is preparing a rocket launch.

Defence Minister Gen Nakatani issued the order, the Nikkei daily and Kyodo News reported, after reports of suspicious activity at Pyongyang's main satellite complex fuelled speculation a launch could come as early as next week.

A Japanese defence ministry spokeswoman declined to confirm the report when contacted by AFP, saying that "would reveal our strategy".

"But we are taking all possible measures to respond (to a missile launch) by collecting information and coordinating with countries concerned," she added.

North Korea is banned from using ballistic missile technology by UN Security Council resolutions, so any launch would further raise tensions among the international community only weeks after its latest nuclear test.

Two US defence officials confirmed to AFP on Friday there was ongoing activity at the North's Sohae satellite complex, which Pyongyang has been upgrading to handle larger, longer-range rockets since 2013.

If I might be forward -- make sure that both of you remember that he's a giant heartache because you love him so. My uncle did OK with Lithium (though he was older); there are many indications that SSRI's are too dangerous to use for patients under 25 years unless in an inpatient facility. I well understand the stress, confusion, and exhaustion that can quickly build-up in such times -- each malady reinforcing the others. I hope you can find calm, clarity, and comfort to resolutely meet the challenges ahead.

I was poking around on Youscrewb a few years ago looking up cheesy 80's artists that didn't get much airplay and hit upon one that blew my mind, Level 42.

Super 80's cheese, easy enough to have dismissed as just an ephemeral phart of the age. Turns out the lead, Mark King, is well known among the bass heads. He popped up a few years ago doing his old songs live. Quite cool.

  A prize possession is an old Sunrise tying vise, from Cabela's that I cannot seem to kill.

  Thing was made in India and will accept 1/0 or #20 hooks without a whimper and holds them like visegrips.  I use it instead of my Orvis.

378 Went to the Silver Antique car auction at the Ft. McDowell casino this afternoon. Saw many nice cars, and some not-so-nice. Never got a bid card. Didn't see any that I would have absolutely had to have, were money no object. Did see quite a few that I would happily let grace my garage, were money no object. Saw a very nice white TR6, 56000 miles, that sold for $12000. Nicer car than mine by far, but it did need a few things fixed. What it did tell me is that I could spend quite a bundle on mine, and still not be in it for more than it is worth. Saw not one, but two '63 Avantis, both nice, but nowhere near 400-point cars. Might have seen Alice Cooper, or at least a guy who looks like him.

And, BTW, you want big -- Mary Jo's Cloth Store in Gastonia, NC. For a little background, you have to realize that there was a lot of industrial production in the mill towns of the south -- but they weren't making iron and steel, they were making furniture and cloth. A lot of the production has moved on; but a lot of the trading posts remain.

All Hook did on it was make a lot of discordant noise. But Sumner did pretty well with the bass. The "song" wasn't even a song, so much as Ian Curtis doing beat poetry....

Just as a reminder -- the founder of Taco Bell's last name was Bell....and he'd also tried "Burger Bell"; "Pizza Bell"; "Chicken Bell"; "Gumbo Bell"; "Falafel Bell"; "Sichuan Bell"; "Meatloaf Bell"; "Wiener Bell"; "Sushi Bell"; "Pretzel Bell"; "Stew Bell"; "BBQ Bell"; and, of course, "Pasta Bell" [ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdxkVQy7QLM ].

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at January 31, 2016 12:38 AM (Z8fuk) At different times, I owned both. 1966 and 1978. I found the cockpit design and convertible top preferable on the latter. The former was not notably faster or more maneuverable, in my experience. But 1978 was the last "good" year for the design, as 1979 and 1980 had serious QC issues, coming from labor disputes, I believe. Realized as you asked about the MGB that I left one car off my list. Sunbeam Tiger, not particular about the year. Or Alpine, 1964-1967. I owned an Alpine and enjoyed it greatly, and the Tiger was a car that I worshiped from afar.

Worse, I cant remember the name of one of my favorites. Loved looking at all the shit. Not having an art background, often the supplies were mysteries to me. My favorite store had a lot of paper, paint, books, and other stuff and on the other side of the store, drafting instruments and technical tools. I calligrapy, you do a lot of lining of paper. At first it is tedious but then it is relaxing. Having the right tools helps. Going to see if I can find the name of the store on an old credit card statement. Maybe they just moved.

I listened to about 30 seconds of their cover of Walking on Sunshine. It was OK. Video showed singer singing, musicians music-ing. I fail to see what's revolutionary about that. I was watching Youtubes of Little Feat last night. Singer singing, musicians music-ing. And the music was better, IMHO.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at January 31, 2016 01:02 AM (Z8fuk)



That's one of three.



The thing about recording sound+video, and mixing them both down simultaneously, is somewhat innovative. Multitracking Nataly doing background vocals and recording the video of each track is clever -- it's not the be-all and end-all of musicianship, but it's a nice fillip.



Try another two vids.

There was a lot of musical diversity at that time and it was great. You had NIN or Ministry. You hade Depeche Mode or The Cure (for example). Slayer and Sepultura exploded as did Metallica and Megadeth. They did destroy those faggy hairbands, which to this day make me want to put a bullet thru whatever device sh*ts out their music. The early 90's had much to offer musically.

534 Well, since the press has been reporting that all the "immigrants" are children, despite most of them being military-aged men, I have to give them credit for being consistently propagandistic. Every sentient being in the world knows they are lying about every aspect of the "immigrant" "crisis", so when they report that "children" were beaten, I'm sure most Swedes know exactly who got pounded and have no problem with it.

597 535 Well, since the press has been reporting that all the "immigrants" are children, despite most of them being military-aged men, I have to give them credit for being consistently propagandistic.

Every sentient being in the world knows they are lying about every aspect of the "immigrant" "crisis", so when they report that "children" were beaten, I'm sure most Swedes know exactly who got pounded and have no problem with it.

Posted by: Sharkman at January 31, 2016 01:25 AM (V5YnQ)



It's all lies, all the way down -- they're not refugees, they're invaders; they're not women + children, they're fighting-age males; they're not from war zones, they're from barbaric lands; they aren't seeking relief; they're seeking conquest; they're not without papers, they discarded them along the way; they don't seek to join a productive society, they wish to rule it; they're not the best and brightest from Syria, they're the insane, infirm, incarcerated, and oppressed from every 3rd-world shithole with transit to Europe.



When 95%+ of the rapes in Sweden belong to these thugs; when people admitted as "14-year-old children" wouldn't be carded to buy liquor in the US; when aidworkers are knifed to bleed out in shelters....it should be noticed.



And the lies should all be reversed. As I noticed in a previous thread -- every "immigrant" should have a chance to be dropped off on a random streetcorner in Aleppo. If he'd rather be flown to Karachi, Baghdad, or Cairo, he needs to testify against the lies. Otherwise, he gets four hours of instruction with 100 practice rounds on a 1911 and 300 rounds in boxes before being dropped-off.

686 Regarding that "Noisy Neighbors" video about the guy who set up a microphone to detect the neighbor's loud music, which would then trigger his own counter-loud music being automatically played back at them: I myself set up something similar a while back to shut up the neighbor's dog -- and it worked! My device was simultaneously less sophisticated than his while also being partly more sophisticated. First thing I did was research the loudest "anti-bark ultrasonic beeper" device available on the market. These devices emit an extremely loud and extremely annoying noise -- that only dogs can hear! (Because it is too high for the human ear to detect, thus "ultrasonic.") They make these with noise detectors to set them beeping, but they're only ever designed for "in-home use" and can't detect a dog that's barking too far away. Furthermore, they sometimes respond to extraneous noises, which ruins the effect because they exist to train the dog not to bark. If the ultrasonic beep goes off randomly, the dog won't be trained, because the annoying sound won't be caused by its barking. So what I did was sneaky and clever: I rigged it so that the beeper was activated by a remote control -- this was actually the hardest part, but I ended up buying a second dog-beeper that had a remote control function, yet had a quieter useless beep, but then took it apart and connected the remote-control part to the louder beeper of the first device. They were both all open with their guts out, but that didn't matter because... I housed the combo remote-contolled loud beeper inside a birdhouse and hung it up in a tree near the neighbor's fence, with the "hole" of the birdhouse (behind which was the speaker of the beeper) pointed straight at the dog's usual barking spot. So now I had a nice loud beeper pointed at the dog, which I could control remotely. But in so doing I had disabled the autodetect activation feature. But that's not a problem, because I, me, became the detector. I put the remote control next to the window facing toward the birdhouse, and every time I heard the neighbor's dog bark, I pressed the remote control button, which activated the ultrasonic beep. I couldn't hear it, but you could see the dog flinch! At first he only barked louder at it, but I just kept beeping him more, until eventually after several days the dog felt defeated (not to mention deafened), and retreated inside. All of this was inaudible to the human ear, and completely invisible, so the dog's owners never had the slightest clue what was happening. The dog stopped barking completely for a while, but eventually it did start up again -- but only either inside the house (where it was muffled and not so bad) or on the front side of the neighbor's house away from my window (also not nearly as bad). But not since then has the dog had the nerve to come out back and bark in my direction! So -- success! I didn't silence the dog completely, but enough to be satisfactory.

690 Mornin' Going to be in the mid-50s here in WNY today. Woot! Listening to Bowie's album 1. OUTSIDE. What a fantastic album. Totally off my radar until lately. Shame that it often takes death to spark an interest in an artist's back catalogue. 1. OUTSIDE is a sprawling, challenging yet mostly quite accessible work. Brilliant stuff. One of his most Prog-Rock albums ever. Love this one a lot.

812 Mac keyboard sensitivity. I had this problem. Most infuriating. Your keyboard imagines you're a delicate flower girl ballerina. You must tell it you are actually gorilla. Apple symbol far upper left, Systems preferences, keyboard. Play around up there with changes. I was just now thinking how satisfying each keystroke feels, exactly as it should, like a typewriter that tells my fingers the right thing is typed. And recalled that precise same difficulty last week that came with re-install, and that too is brilliant. I must say, credit where it is due, they made things easy as possible.
