Interesting that an artist subsidized by the Public Works of Art Project, essentially the New Deal, would paint Atlantic Class boats racing on Long Island Sound. This was painted in 1934...the depths of the Great Depression.

It's perhaps unremarkable to observe that a LOT of that New Deal-financed art looks quite a bit like Soviet propaganda paintings.

I'm sure that there was nothing nefarious or propaganda-ish about it.

85 CBD wrote, "This was painted in 1934...the depths of the Great Depression."

So what should the artist have painted, miserable, homeless folk queuing up in bread lines?

The painter Henri Matisse took a great deal of criticism for the subjects and themes of his paintings afterPicasso's politically charged work,'Guernica', came out. People were demanding to know what the hell Matisse was thinking, producingfrivolously pretty portraits of ladiesin brightly colored dresses andflowers and nudes in color drunk blues and oranges and reds.

Paraphrasing, Matisse said it is precisely troubled times like these when one should be painting such things.

I agree. More sailboats and blue skies, please.

Even though there is no cancer, she still has something going on with her BP-doc has no idea. That plus the anemia, the fatigue are still making it a challenge to get everything done she needs to do. But...she's tough, and she doesn't whine or back down. Puts her shoulder to it, and keeps going. I pretty proud of her.

When we were driving by the marina in Victoria there was an absolutely stunning sailboat docked.

Interesting that an artist subsidized by the Public Works of Art Project, essentially the New Deal, would paint Atlantic Class boats racing on Long Island Sound.



Foster was an avid sailor, so it was sort of his thing.

And: "Once completed, the artworks were displayed in public buildings to uplift a dispirited nation through portrayals of what project officials called 'the American Scene'. These diverse representations of people, industry, cities and farmland were meant to reassure viewers of the countrys strength and purpose on its road to economic recovery."

So the American Socialist version of happy Russian peasants harvesting wheat-fields and Red Chinese revolutionary operas.

111 I like the scene but the composition is too regular. I would have preferred a more abstract approach but that doesn't fit with the WPA style that I've seen, which tends to be slightly exaggerated in its features.

We have a Hatteras hammock that I bought my husband for Father's Day years ago. It is finally showing signs of wear - some of the ropes are starting to fray. And this last weekend, one of them broke.

The HH website has a rope repair kit that comes with directions, but I don't know - seems like a lot could go wrong. However, at $35, it's way cheaper than ordering a new hammock.

Night Gallery

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0064725

Posted by: Bertram Cabot Jr. at August 29, 2016 10:08 AM (IqV8l)

The weird thing about the whole 'Night Gallery' show was that the producers didn't want Rod Serling to write any of the scripts. They wanted the name, the face, the voice and the associations but didn't want the talents of the guy who wrote at least half of the Twilight Zone scripts as well as the screenplay for 'Requiem For A Heavyweight'. Serling is arguably one of the finest television screenwriters who's ever lived. Their decision is even more baffling in retrospect.

As an aside, Rod Serling was a paratrooper in the Pacific theater in WWII. He saw a lot of action and his unit suffered an atrocious casualty rate. In a documentary on Serling's life I saw not too long ago, one of his childhood friends said he thought Serling's writings were a way of working out his demons.

Iliked finding out Rod Serling was a paratrooper. So was Jimi Hendrix. So was I. Proof all the cool kids are paratroopers.

-------------

Thats the nature of sailboats and racing in particular.

Usually day racing is just "around the buoys" which means that there's a circuit that they have to complete kind of like a race track on the water.

Then of course there's the fact that sailboats navigate upwind (and apparent wind boats - downwind as well) by "tacking" across the breeze. This is where much of the tactics of sailboat racing kicks in - where you try and use the right-of-way rules to screw over your competitors.

As for my boat's name... its going to be called "benchwarmer" since my wife's sports medicine practice is paying for it. Got the deposit in, contract signed...

When you have a boat being pushed over by the wind like that, you always sit on the high side, where your weight stabilizes the boat and allows you to grab more wind, not the low side. The way those people are sitting, their boats are all getting ready to flip.

I can't imagine that the businessmen who were plotting a coup were serious about it, since they approached Gen. Butler, who was a vocal anti-capitalist & anti-war activist. They literally could not have chosen a worse person to inquire about overthrowing FDR. I personally think the whole thing was just idle talk that Butler ran with to prove his agenda was right.

258 Too bad the picture's so very wrong.

When you have a boat being pushed over by the wind like that, you always sit on the high side, where your weight stabilizes the boat and allows you to grab more wind, not the low side. The way those people are sitting, their boats are all getting ready to flip.

The person who painted that picture has clearly never actually sailed in a boat.

Not necessarily. The Atlantics are keelboats, 4'9" draft in a 30' boat, so the weight of a crew member or two isn't going to make much difference. They aren't centerboarders, where you're point would hold. (Frankly, they seem to be heeling quite a bit, relative to the sea, the wind seems strong. Not that the LI Sound has much wind, anyway.) On some boats you can have a good view of the sails that way - others not so much. I've never been on an Atlantic; I'm from the S Shore, where there's not enough water for them. But I've seen R-boat sailors sail them that way.

What IS wrong is the directions they are going. The buoy should directly astern two going downwind, so either they have an immense lead on the others, or the ones still beating are overshooting it. (They are clearly going to pass it on the starboard tack, which is what they are on.)

Obama is in phone in mode now. He will not do anything other than release Gitmo prisoners, pardon every possible Federal prisoner that's black, golf, go to Hawaii to vacation, and help issue transgender, gay, and minority regulations to confer special treatment to them.

Don't be surprised if he spends little to no time between now and January in the White House. He said earlier this summer that he had "blocked out the entire month of October to campaign for Hillary". Because being preszy is boring now.

283 I still have my little 15' sailboat in the garage. I haven't sailed it since 2011 though, when a strong gust dumped me and my beer cooler into the drink. Luckily, those sailing lessons I took 30 years earlier came in handy for the first time ever. I got up on the centerboard, and it flipped right back up. Some friendly powerboaters rescued my beer cooler, and complimented me on my skillz. That ordeal sobered me up right quick, and I limped back to shore for the last time...

The cartels are transporting pot OUT of Colorado, not in. The problem is that the cartels have moved into Colorado to grow and distribute elsewhere as they found a safe haven if they can stay quiet.

LInk to Denver news article and video regarding the cartels moving in.

I agree. Trump's celebrity is bringing people out to see him. Yes, they are going to vote for him, but elections aren't won on the size of rallies.
The Hillary voters have their marching orders already and they know what they have to do, so there's no need to attend any of her rallies--which are hand-picked and staged anyway....

I could be wrong, but I thought that CO was not raking in the pot taxes they thought they would. The taxes practically doubles the price of pot so people buy it from black market instead...black market made up of entrepreneur pot growers and Mexican drug cartels smuggling in their product.

The cartels have to bring it to CO via interstate highways, has been a problem for law enforcement in the surrounding states. But we were told it would not affect anyone else just CO! Yeah right.

Posted by: LizLem at August 29, 2016 11:17 AM (hvf9s)







Not to mention the fact that a lot of legal grow operations and dispensaries divert a big chunk of their production and inventory to the black market. As an example, a few years back, the guy who owned several legal dispensaries on the CA central coast (including the most successful one in Santa Barbara) was busted driving a huge load of weed to illegal dealers in Oklahoma.

Posted by: IllTemperedCur at August 29, 2016 11:30 AM (xxSK3)

306 But I DO know they have to deal with pot tourists at the UT/CO border.

That's true. I think 3 states have tried to sue CO but they haven't been successful. One case where a CO driver was pulled over in another state (forgot which one) just because of his CO plates. He won his case just recently. We do have a lot of transients on the Western Slope that come here for the pot and of course end up committing crimes and creating havoc.

Ah, there's the rub: unlike other states, CO granted people with a medical MJ license permission to grow up to 99 pot plants. So....yeah, people have ways of getting pot w/out going to a legal pot shop. Also, this has attracted new cartels, including Cubans, that are growing so much dang "legal" pot here that state is now exporting it over the border.

315 Colorado Care proposal calls for funding in the form of a 10% payroll tax, two-thirds to be paid by the employer and one-third to be paid by the employee. Non-employee income to be taxed at the full 10% rate. It's not clear from the wording of the initiative whether this would include things like capital gains income.

Employer can voluntarily pick up any or all of the employee's contribution.

This 10% is on top of any existing payroll taxes.

Proponents claim that this will be more than offset by the savings in health insurance premiums, which would theoretically be eliminated as the state takes over all health care reimbursements.

325 WPA-funded commie paints boats in communist "heroic style," so why not sailboats on Long Island. It was, "we are all communists now," especially in New York.

Of course the painting is all wrong. Racers always move to the high side of the boat when tacking. Holds the sail up into the wind. Oh but that would be COMPETING. That's right, this is a commie "race." Not allowed to try to win.

Unless you are at the top, then you slaughter by the millions everyone who is perceived as offering the slightest competing thought. Sail in the wind, hah. Just drown the other sailors!
