Thursday Overnight Open Thread (9/1/16) [Mis. Hum.]

You want news? Look, Iran is treated with kid gloves again. Iranian news isn't for you?

How about a new national monument without Congressional approval?

Hillary spoke to the American Legion.It appears she needed assistance walking to the podium.


Do you want commentary with your news? You could go here.


Do you want to think about the ever present Nanny State? Probably not. Amirite?


Would you like to discuss societal trends? You are free to travel here.


It just seems the world keeps getting weirder. Imagine a time machine. Today's Special Snowflake parents would stroke out.


Current events not your topic this evening? We could examine math and the consequences of taxation. No?


Would you like to discuss the weather?Everybody talks about the weather. However, you can't discuss climate change. You know settled science like salt and fat.

What's happening in the world of sports? Does the NFL want to celebrate "free speech"?

They won't celebrate heroes who gave their lives protecting people exercising their freedoms. According to the NFL, it's ok to mock the police. They could nip this in the bud. The NFL has a reputation of being the fashion police. They just don't want to.

Should we discuss news, current events, weather, sports? Let's not and say we did.

After All It's Musical Thursday Night


The following songs are well known. The videos are of the originals and subsequent covers. Are there any songs out there that you like which have been covered?


I Shot The Sherriff


Bob Marley


Eric Clapton

In 2003, Clapton's version was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Your humble OB always preferred Marley's version.

Stairway To Heaven


Led Zeppelin



Frank Zappa


Recently Led Zeppelin was victorious in a copy right case against them. Of course our legal system is screwed up. You win, but you still have to pay $800,000 in legal fees. The plaintiff? Win? You pay your attorney 33 1/3%. Lose? You pay your attorney's costs. Tort reform is way overdue.


Take Me To The River


Al Green


Talking Heads

This particular song has been used in numerous TV shows and movies.


Proud Mary


Credence Clear Water Revival


Ike & Tina Turner


Both CCR's version and the Turner's versions received Grammy Hall of Fame awards.


Little Wing


Jimi Hendrix


Stevie Ray Vaughn


A beautiful song that has been covered by numerous artists. A great cover was done by Derek & The Dominoes. How many others have covered this ageless song?

All Along The Watch Tower


Bob Dylan



Eric Johnson



Written in 1967. According to Dylan's own website, by 2012 he had performed the song 2,034 times. Dylan was said to have enjoyed Hendrix's version better than his and attempted to sound more like Jimi when he played it in concert.


Green Onions


Booker T & The MGs



Roy Buchanan


This is the only instrumental song in Rolling Stone Magazine's Top 500 rock songs of all time. In 1999 it received a Grammy Hall of Fame Award.


Super Star


Delaney & Bonnie


Sonic Youth



The Carpenters made this a Yuuuge hit. In 1971 it made #1 in the Billboard Adult Contemporary List. It also produced a Gold Record and a Grammy Nomination for Richard Carpenter for arrangement.

Both Sides Now


Joni Mitchell



Neil Diamond



There were numerous covers to choose from. From Bing Crosby to Leonard Nimoy. Yes, Spock had an emotional side to him.


Knockin' On Heaven's Door


Bob Dylan



Warren Zevon


A little history on Zevon's cover. He was dying of lung cancer when he recorded this. It can be found on his last studio LP, The Wind. Hard to believe September 7th he has been gone 13 years.


On Broadway

The Drifters


AC/DC



Covered by numerous artists. Can you name a few? One of them would be George Benson. Benson's version won a Grammy Award for Best R&B Vocal Performance.


Rosalie


Bob Seger


Thin Lizzy


The song "Rosalie" was written in tribute to Rosalie Trombley, the music director of CKLW-AM in Windsor, Ontario, which was one of North America's leading Top 40 radio stations of the 1960s and '70s. The song was made more famous by the Irish rock band Thin Lizzy, who originally recorded it for their 1975 album Fighting; another recording, included on their live album Live and Dangerous in 1978, became a hit single in the UK in the same year.

Since we are expressing opinions. Thin Lizzy's version kicks butt compared to Seger's version.


California Man


The Move



Cheap Trick


California Man performed by The Move reached number 7 on the UK Singles Chart in May 1972. Cheap Trick has it on several LPs and the song has been covered by other bands as well. Do you know who they are?


Addicted To Love

Robert Palmer



Eagles of Death Metal


The song entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart the week ending 8 February 1986. The song ended up topping the Billboard Hot 100, as well as the Billboard Top Rock Tracks chart. It was one of the last 45 RPM singles to receive a million-selling Gold certification. It also reached number one in Australia and number five on the UK Singles Chart.

The Eagles of Death Metal were on stage when the Le Bataclan attack took place in Paris, France November 2015.


Hello It's Me


Todd Rundgren



John Legend

Rundgren's early career had numerous Pop Music hits that hold up well today. This was his only Top Ten pop hit, reaching #5 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Eye Of The Tiger


Survivor



Paul Anka



Sylvester Stallone is to blame for this song. He requested Survivor for music for Rocky III.

It gained tremendous MTV and radio airplay and topped charts worldwide during 1982. In the United States, it held number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for six consecutive weeks and was the No. 2 single of 1982, behind Olivia Newton-John's "Physical". The band won a 1982 Grammy Award for "Best Rock Performance by Duo or Group With Vocal" at the 25th Annual Grammy Awards.

Dig Paul Anka? Want to slice like a f*$%@# hammer? Join the group.

1 Rise of the Banana-less Republics

Latin America, both the Spanish speaking countries and Brazil, are stereotypically known for being "banana republics" run by dictators. Indeed, Venezuela and Cuba seem to personify this. However, there is an increasing trend of would-be tyrants and corrupt "El Presidente" types being legally removed from office in a triumph of democracy.

187 Hello all.

So a guy I went to high school with is now a Methodist pastor in Ohio, and has become increasingly left-wing over time. Partly it's because his parents are the same way, partly it's the Social Gospel distortion of Christianity he's signed on for. Anyway, the other day he posted on Facebook about how proud he was that his 10-year-old had just ripped his 7-year-old a new one for "misgendering" a transgender celebrity (didn't say who).

Just thought I'd share that, lest anyone thought these SJWs might be going away in the next few years or so. They are a plague and they are reproducing.

I can't agree (which I guess is the point of these discussions). I found the MTV Unplugged version of Nirvana and I don't think it tops Bowie. Maybe the album version is better.

Bowie is so sui generis. There's no comparing him to anything.

201 Except in rare instances, the original version of a song is better--especially if it's a good song that you already like. How can that be improved upon?

There are exceptions to this --Hendrix doing "Watchtower"; Santana doing "Black Magic Woman"; Johnny Cash , "Hurt" and Sonic Youth covering "Superstar." In all these cases, the cover version goes places the original didn't and thus the cover artist makes it their own.

Oh I saw a documentary about that. It was an old song, but Dave van Ronk claims that he invented a new chord progression for it. Dylan (he claims) stole it and put it on his first album.

So then Van Ronk was playing "his" song and people said why are you covering the Dylan thing? Then the Animals did their version and they started asking Dylan why he was doing the Animals song.

252 Bertram: After years of HPs, I thought I would try and Epson. I also wanted to see if using/having *4* ink tanks instead of two would save money or make ink last longer.

Good news: the Epson printing quality, *while it worked,* was very good, just as much so as all my HPs. Pictures came out great too. And I have an LD Products company store close by me, so I was always able to get remanufactured ink tanks for $6.99 each.

Bad news, and the dealbreaker: About two months ago, it inexplicably *stopped printing black ink.* I have tried everything, changing ink, using a NON-remanufactured ink tank... nothing works. And when I looked for a fix online, the only one I could find was: Epson printers are built to break, get another make next time.

So, sigh, I'm back to HP.

255 in a similar vein, carly simon recounts how she came to write "you're so vain" about warren beatty in her upcoming memoir.

seems they had been having an affair when he showed up at her ny home one night. he had flown in from l.a. desperate to see her and they made love. he left early the next morning to get back on the set.

later that day she told her therapist about warren and their night together. the therapist cringed and interrupted telling her that she wasn't the first that day who gushed about having sex with beatty the night before!

Screw it, back to HP. At least the new one I'm getting will have *two* paper trays, so I won't have to switch out regular paper and photo paper anymore. And it uses the old 2-cartridge "black/color" system.

It's a doc about a 13 yo Mongolian girl who becomes the first Eagle Hunter in Mongolia's 2000 yr history. This might be the year's best film.

Here's the thing. When Girl Power is about millionaire actresses remaking a thirty yo film that's on cable every other week, that's just dumb. But when Girl Power is a 13 yo Mongolian girl who never heard of Hollywood juggling a golden eagle on horseback better than any men - that's pretty cool.

Exactly. It's like a form of falconry, and the Mongolian version goes an extra step in that they release the bird back into the wild after hunting with it for a few years, so that it may mate. And yet, I'm sure the Lefties would love to whine about animal cruelty regardless of the fact that it's the furthest thing from it.

331 Jim, color laser printers are quite affordable nowadays. Go to Amazon, they've got some that I saw for around $200-$350. Dell, HP, all the usual suspects.

But, they use four separate toner cartridges that are even more expensive than the ones for your inkjet printer.

Me, too. I like her voice and she was the gateway for me at the ripe old age of 6 or 7 to discover the people, like Dylan, who wrote many of her hits.

Worse for me, I also love Joni Mitchell and think she's an amazing songwriter, singer, and guitarist. That's not going to earn me any Brownie points here. :-(

It's amazing that artists have such periods of creativity they just give away songs.

Springsteen wrote Because the Night and gave it to Patti Smith.

Prince wrote Manic Monday and gave it to the Bangles, then wrote Nothing Compares to U and gave it to Sinead.

These guys were just in the zone and it was nothing to say "oh, here's a hit that will last a lifetime".

361 Seriously though, vertov, that sounds interesting.



I wonder if it will screen at the Toronto International Film
Festival? I've never been to one but maybe I'll check out the TIFF
schedule to see if it'll be included.

I would check it out - it looks like an incredible film. The filmmakers used a drone to get some shots, so there are these incredible vista's of steppe and mountains. Almost John Ford-like. And I think there's a "Nanook of the North" aspect to it. I don't the people in the film really knew what the filmmakers were doing - what it really meant to have a film made about them. And the girl - you've got a 100+ lb. eagle flying at you, with talons that could rip your eyes out in an instant, you're on horseback, and it's supposed to land on your hand. And there's a heck of a father-daughter story. And evidently there's footage of the "village elders' discussing whether they should really let a girl eagle hunt.

362 Might have to check me out some laser printer stuff, after all.

It's got to where I take a USB drive to Office Despot, and print on their high speed, high quality machines.

Still cheaper than dealing with dried up cartridges and un-renewable print heads.

That's where the Epson dies, too. If they'd let'cha click in a new print head for a reasonable price, I'd keep the printer for damn near ever. It does a great job, but I don't use it enough, so it dies.

363 Really OT:

I've been working with a freelance client for several years, and they asked me to put in a bid on re-doing all the text of their e-commerce website. It's a huge project that needs to be done in eight weeks. To make a long story short, I have twisted myself in 100 different knots to make the pricing work and have given them several different pricing options.

However, they want it fast, cheap and good.

They don't seem to understand you can only have two out of three.

Today I got an email from their UK office saying that my rate isn't in their budget at all and asked if I could do it for 17% less. Which means several thousand dollars less for me. Basically, I'll do the same amount of work, they'll get the same quality (for their website and product packaging) and I'll get a lot less money.

So, tomorrow morning I'm sending them a very polite 'thanks, but no' email.

Sigh. I need to just give up, get a job at a bookstore and start collecting money from Uncle Sugar like everyone else in the USA.

Far out. I would really encourage you to go. At these film festival screenings, you never know who will be there. I know the father and daughter were at Sundance. I saw them interviewed - they were totally out of their element. And I don't mean that as an insult, I mean that as a compliment. They were REAL people. In Toronto - maybe the filmmakers will be there, and they'll talk afterwards. You can get an awful lot of additional info at these film fests.

They take my money all the time to build and pay for crap all the time. If the money flow out of the US to Mexico is larger then the money flow in.

398 Yet another reason for Wall Stree and the Big Banks to oppose Trump. If he's serious about seizing cartel money, well, he's gonna step on a lot of toes.

The drug cartels deal in billions and billions. There is no way they could do business without using the banking system. In fact, the big banks are up to their eyeballs in laundering money for the cartels. And Uncle Sam benefits as well. The Cayman Islands banking system is one of the biggest holders of US debt, 3rd or 4th largest foreign holder.

All they ever do is just give the banks a slap on the wrist if the drug money handling is so obvious they have to do something.

I've read claims that really cracking down on drug money circulation through the banking system would actually cause a little crash -- a little seize up in the system until you adjusted for it.

The War on Drugs is nothing but a hypocritical sham.

Another really good cover album IMO is "The Anatomy Of" by Between the Buried and Me. It's really impressive if you compare it to their normal stuff - they really have a lot of range. I'm actually not a huge fan of their original material, but some of the covers on that album are great.

422 OK, this is sort of on topic because it's music. Someone just posted a version of God Bless the USA on Facebook and said "is that E flat"?

I love music. Songs are an important soundtrack of my life. I have no idea what makes music.

I can speak convincingly in four languages, I can pass for native in one that's not mine, I can make realistic noises in ten languages that I don't know except for the phrases but I make the right sounds.

I don't get why I don't get pitch. Everybody but me hates my singing. (I quite enjoy it).

423 416 The soundtrack to Not Another Teen Movie is all pretty solid covers of 80's tunes by mostly 90's alternative acts. I really like the Stabbing Westward cover of "Bizarre Love Triangle" and Phantom Planet's version of "Somebody's Baby." Also has the super-odd (but IMO catchy) System of a Down cover of Berlin's "The Metro."

I can sing decently because I do voice mimicry, and they aren't completely different skills. Apparently I'm good at matching pitch. But I have no idea about the nuts and bolts of music - when musicians talk shop, it's all Greek to me.

Just got through the Zappa Stairway to Heaven cover.

Someone said Zappa looked bored. He always looked aloof.

I was most fortunate to see him several times.

One time I saw him not so aloof was when the Mothers were the homecoming band at my college (seriously - guess where & when) and at one quiet point, some guy in the audience called out, "EAT ME FRANK!" Zappa did a long pause, smiled, and managed to say, "I hope that's a girl with a deep voice!"

Oh, he was also delightfully genial introducing guest star "Mister Sting" at a great concert in Chicago.

An odd thing I don't understand: composers like Handel and Bach remained creative all their lives, rock stars generally dry up after a few good albums. Is it because they just decide to rest on their laurels and spend the rest of their lives on tour? I'm surprised they don't go nuts playing the same stuff over and over again.

I couldn't handle more than a couple minutes of that. First he lies that the intention of O-Care was to slow the rate of increase. Then he chooses the 2000-2010 timeframe as comparison which ignores that rates were significantly slowing after 2005 when HSA's really started to kick into gear. Oh, and I never heard of a significant crisis of insurance providers in rural areas except after O-Care decided counties, instead of states were just great community sizes.

.Looks legit. It is a poll of likely voters. One disturbing thing is there is 19% don't know or refused. That's quite a bit this close to the election. 1/5th of likely voters either won't say or don't know who they are voting for is yuuuge at this point.

Rasmussen did a survey on the issue of hidden Trump voters this week:

"A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 17% of
Likely Republican Voters are less likely this year to let others know
how they intend to vote compared to previous presidential campaigns."

So it does appear that there are a significant number of Trump voters out there that polling is not picking up.

536 Is the College of Cardinals ever going to get rid of this communist before he destroys the Catholic Church?

Short answer: no.

Long answer: no. Because, much like here, where real government power isn't with Senator Blutarsky from North Sodomy, AK, but with the permanent class of unelected bureaucrats who put papers in front of him to sign and make "summaries" of pending legislation so that he doesn't have to go to the trouble of actually reading a bill, the CoC is controlled by the lavender mafia which has been steadily infiltrating the Church for over 50 years and which was instrumental in persuading Benedict to "resign."

The decision to depose Frankie Fabulous lies not with the cardinals, but with the shadowy camarilla who control them.

I don't think it has to be that sinister. I mean, the motives are base, Weener is now an untethered liability, so whatever prior impulse there was to offer him protection is gone.

There must be some kind of blade over here
Said the Mullah to The Thief
There's too many contusions
I can't make this chop neat
Taliban, they stone my wife
Bombers scorch my earth
Nobody in this land of strife
Knows what a poppy is worth

No reason to get Wahhabist
The Thief unkindly spoke
There are infidels among us
Who think salafis are a joke
But you and I we've been thru that
And this is not our faith
So let us stop chopping falsely now
My stump is starting to ache

Wa ALLAH's on the watchtower
Sniper's kept their view
While unveiled women came and wept
Cause we stoned them too
Outside in the Kush distance
Warthogs did prowl
Hellfires were approaching
And the shaykh began to howl
