Mid-Morning Open Thread

Rosenquist.jpg

Lady Dog Lizard
James Rosenquist

J.J. Sefton told me of the artist's death (last Friday) and suggested him as an Art Thread topic. His comment was...

Not a fan really of pop art but I appreciated his work (see "F-111"). I thought at least he had a technical ability and knew how to paint.

...which says it all for me.

I found this in the NYT obituary, and it reinforced my opinion of the guy. Think what you will of his art, he had real-world experience and didn't minimize his connection to everyday life.

"Much of the aesthetic of my work comes from doing commercial art," Mr. Rosenquist said. "I painted pieces of bread, Arrow shirts, movie stars. It was very interesting. Before I came to New York I wanted to paint the Sistine Chapel. I thought this is where the school of mural painting exists. You were painting things up close, like big chocolate cakes. In Brooklyn, I painted Schenley whiskey bottles two stories high, 147 of them over every candy store."

10 This is sort of neat, I guess, but I can't help but thinking "why?"

It's clearly not like it's depicting a scene that you'd ever actually see somewhere, so that means that it's supposed to be more abstract in purpose, in which case I definitely don't get it.

Lines up with what Camille Paglia said in a recent talk (she's got a new book out). Someone asked her about that Canadian professor who refuses to play the gender pronoun game, and she went off on the LGBT crew insisting we change the language - she emphatically said: create your own new language, don't try to destroy what already exists/tell us what we can and cannot say.

But that's the key to every progressive pursuit, whether it's comics, marriage, pronouns or even James Bond: they desire to destroy what exists vs. create their own.

I feel like it's impossible to write stories about the same characters for 50 years and not have things just run their course. The best TV shows lose steam after 10 (and most don't even make it that long), and there's only so many times that you can scale up the size of the conflict until things get ridiculous. You've also explored just about every interpersonal issue that can arise between the characters, so the only thing that's left to do is retcon things either through time travel, multiple universes, or some other means and inevitably you leave the franchise in a mess.

2) They were the same lot of wags who just knew there was no way Trump could win the Presidency
3) From the primary to the Presidency, we saw the same thing from Trump: Early missteps then, ruthless, targeted efficiency as he tested multiple actions and honed in on the most effective. All under the radar of the commentariat.

Not only the Wayans but Jim Carey, that Wanda thing, Jamie Foxx, and who knows how many others. Jamie Foxx even got to play Ray Charles and win an Academy Award IIRC.

I suspect the reason the left feels so superior to us is that they have twice the standards most of us do.

91 Marvel may have been able to introduce new, diverse characters if they didn't require that the character they were replacing be made to look like loser scum. At least that's what I read.

92 The F-111 was supposed to be a one-size-fits-all replacement for most of the Air Force & Navy inventory. In that it failed miserably (looking at you, F-35). However, it excelled as a bomber for the Air Force. It's particular niche really hasn't been filled since it was retired.

102 There's no doubt of James Rosenquist's talent. I'm not a big fan pop art as art although it can make interesting images. The composition of this painting means nothing to me but I find the colors, both in intensity and placement, very appealing.

I wish I had more profound insight into this painting and its school but this damn head cold makes me feel like I'm pushing thoughts through thick cement. Bummer.

120 Pop Art, at least in the early formations, was being done by those who had more formal training and skills.

It was, if anything, a magnification and meditation on the confluence of High Art and commercial art and a blurring of the lines between the two. People forget that in order for works to be transgressive in the formal meaning of the term, there must be boundaries which can be crossed. That's the main issue with what passes for modern "transgressive" works. What boundary are you pushing? None. None boundary is what.

Yup. What's the not actually a joke? The most transgressive thing to be today is a married couple with four kids and a small house and no debt other than the mortgage.

I need to go spelunking to find the article on a guy who is teaching Kids These Days how to paint in the classical style. It was fascinating because a lot of it is about how the skills are literally dying off and because some of the students were taggers who found other kids who were all dude dude dude have you seen this Rembrandt shit, dope ass shit dude you have to see it, dude I wanna paint like that.

Guess what? Those kids couldn't find people to train them how to paint like that because pffft who wants to do *that*? Nope, no schools teach that, instead this guy is running his own classes.

168 I'm an engineer.

Hydraulic pressure resonance suppressor is either a buffer tank of some sort or simply flex couplings or maybe both.

I had a project at a previous employer where I had to remove pressure fluctuations from a coating system. Our Japanese sister plant bought a $150,000 special pumps that made the pressure pulses 180 degrees out of phase. I put a small vertical pipe inline with an air bubble to absorb all the pulsations. That was fun.

171 Insomniac, for you:

The body-mind loop works like this: mind freaks out, body responds by tensing/adrenaline dumping, mind reads the body tension as a reason to keep freaking out.

So, either work to relax the body (breathe deep into the upper chest, limbering the shoulders, and then breathe out about ten percent further/slower than normal, for several breaths in a row), or run around a bit so that the mind can have an alternate explanation for why the body is so hyped up.

Saying this as a veteran of several dozen professional orchestra auditions.

Good luck to you sir!

My limited knowledge on the subject says that most of the gas in the world would be spoiled after a couple of years.

I don't actually know if that means "completely unusable" or just "doesn't work as well as it should."

It seems to me that it would still be flammable but there is a lot about the chemistry I don't actually understand.

One thing that always irked me about TOS was that every planet had a monoform culture. There never seemed to be any breakdown by country or area. Every Rigellian was the same as another. It would be as if the Enterprise beamed down to Keokuk and presumed the rest of Earth was just like it.

Middle-aged women are leading the anti-Trump resistance

A new survey indicates that a huge proportion of the progressive activists opposing President Donald Trump are middle-aged women, per Lake Research Polling, which examined Daily Action users.

Daily Action is a tool that suggests a civic-minded task via text message each day like calling one's federal or state representatives to "resist extremism in America." Since the survey results reflect Daily Action users who chose to respond it's not a scientific poll, but Lake Research told HuffPost that they're confident the survey reflects "the group's most active users."

The raw numbers: 86% of those who participated were female and 66% were over the age of 45 - with 72% of women saying they'd already taken part in a protest against the Trump administration and 77% saying that they were very likely to protest in the future. h/t axios

Law school story!

There's a famous British case on justifiable homicide in which a student killed a teacher at a Brit public (remember that means private) school. It's pretty much a standard case for teaching how the standards on deciding what is justifiable have developed.

We get assigned the case to read, come in the next day and the prof is all okay who thinks it was justified. About half the hands go up. Okay who thinks it wasn't. The other half go up.

Prof then says you do know that he killed him because he was buggering him, not bugging him, right? Annnd that's when the penny dropped for a whole bunch of people. There were many requests for a revote.

It's not funny except for all of the ways in which it is.

Scott died in his tent because the soldered tins that held their heater fuel had allowed the contents to transpire out. It's...a canning thing. One legend is that Sir John Franklin's lot went loopy from the lead seals on their canned food.

JD Rockefeller was touring Standard's drum plant and asked a foreman why they needed 40 drops of solder to seal each barrel. The boss told him they'd tried 38 drops, and the lids came off. Rockefeller said "Try 39." The resulting savings paid for Williamsburg, or built a mansion, or bought off some politician, I forget which.

I especially liked the part when she had to help boost Moe up on her shoulders to help get over a wall and he kept missing her shoulder and instead stepped on one of her giant hooters which was accompanied by the horn honk sound effect. Of course, this happened multiple times. How can that ever be not funny?

Personally I was praying that they would fill the plot hole of Rick's psychotic break after Lorie died as never getting better. And have him creating the Saviors because he did not like the way his people always had him doing stuff and acting like ungrateful turds. Basically a completely heel turn.

Have Rick brutally kill Megan after the first 10 minute spoech because he is too mouthy. Carl decides to fight is evil dad, and Rick's people have to band together with their leader playing the role of psychopath Negan.

But they went full comics, which they can't and don't pull off well at all because it's impossible.

Their base honestly believes that McConnell will nuke it no matter what whenever he gets sufficient pushback.

So why not do the stupid thing now and have it die instead of later when the pick might not be as acceptably, there might be a stronger call to keep the court "even", and more Republicans might be willing to side with them because they obviously weren't unreasonable during the Gorsuch hearings? This all being the alternate universe where Democrats told their base to cool it, and they just let Gorsuch sail through, of course.

Xhe and Songbird the Bile Filled Hating Nutcase have become all so shopworn in their travails against the interests of this great nation. They and Egg McMuffin should lather themselves in Crisco, buy a truck load of poppers and go have a life long Lemon Party and leave the country alone. ~spit~

Nah, because Gorsuch doesn't have adopted children to be blackmailed over.

TWD should have thrown a crazy twist in when they first introduced Negan to set up a end of the series by the end of season 8.



Personally I was praying that they would fill the plot hole of
Rick's psychotic break after Lorie died as never getting better. And
have him creating the Saviors because he did not like the way his people
always had him doing stuff and acting like ungrateful turds. Basically a
completely heel turn.



Have Rick brutally kill Megan after the first 10 minute spoech
because he is too mouthy. Carl decides to fight is evil dad, and Rick's
people have to band together with their leader playing the role of
psychopath Negan.



But they went full comics, which they can't and don't pull off well at all because it's impossible.

(sorry for any spoilers)
The season's story line with Carol has been weak. Seemed like every episode she wanted to be left alone, wouldn't fight, etc. Now all of the sudden she's back in it again?Eugene and Negan's encounter at the end -that could have been played out much better too.And those crazy bitches - that story line can't die fast enough.

378 I think even the establishment Republicans have finally accepted the fact that 95% of the Democrat congressmembers are full on socialist/communist believers and hate the constitution and the majority of the country's citizens.

I think we have Schumer's insane asylum behavior to thank for finally getting it through the Rep. thick skulls. Not to mention mayors such as DeBlasio, etc. who not only call for their PD to hide illegals, but have been suggesting things such as asassinations, etc. The "unmasking" of Obama and company's illegal and subversive activities to undermine Congress, illegal deals with other counties and the politicization of the intelligence and law enforcement services.

I wanted to tell you about this since Saturday, on the Pet Thread.

I know you're thinking about getting a cat to keep your older cat company. This site:

http://www.wayofcats.com/blog/

Has lots of good information about how to match cats up using their personality. There's a menu towards the bottom on the right side that will help you find articles. Basically she categorizes cats into Alpha (very active), Beta (sociable) and Gamma (shy). Betas get along with everyone, but Alphas can be too much for Gammas.

435 One side plays by the rules and the other side makes up the rules as they go. Which side to you think has the advantage moving their agenda forward?

Yes electing a majority slows down the evil train but it doesn't stop it. You either have to join the opposition in ignoring the rules or you have to use your majority to force them to follow the rules or face consequences. We have done neither so far.

The TransAm Trucking decision is an excellent example of the differences
between liberals and those who want judges who actually rule on the
law. I don't think the two views can ever be reconciled. It's a
fundamentally different view of the role of the courts. Posted by: JackStraw at April 03, 2017 11:44 AM (/tuJf)

448 I'm sure the MSM will ALL OVER this. Not.

White House lawyers last month learnedthat the former national
security adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in
raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the
Donald Trump transition and campaign, according to U.S. officials
familiar with the matter.
The pattern of Rice's requests was
discovered in a National Security Council review of the government's
policy on "unmasking" the identities of individuals in the U.S. who are
not targets of electronic eavesdropping, but whose communications are
collected incidentally. Normally those names are redacted from summaries
of monitored conversations and appear in reports as something like
"U.S. Person One."

They along with college students were the groups used by the progressive New Left to take control of the Democratic Party.

These groups were the people who had lots of time to devote to political activism as opposed to blue collar working folks who depend on others to represent their interests as they don't have the time to do so personally.

597 I need a cat expert. My daughter's 12 year old cat (that use to be ours) has twice in the past week bitten her hard. This cat has always been a bit pissy but she seems to be getting worse. The bite last week required a trip to the doctor as it was swollen and red. I learned that 90% of cat bites cause infection because of the bacteria in their mouths and can be extremely serious if not taken care of. They had to give my daughter an antibiotic shot and pills. They said if it got worse go to the ER. Thankfully it got better.

Well she bit her again this morning. She does this for no reason....just walks up to my daughter and bam, bites her. Hopefully the antibiotics she's still on will take care of the second bite because if we have to go to the doc again, animal control will come take the cat and my daughter will freak out. Daughter is temporarily living with us and has to keep the cats upstairs in her bedroom...we have one dog that HATES cats.

Any ideas?

Pryor saw that, made a comment about the monk not even flinching, dosed himself in brandy, and intentionally lit himself on fire.

Your first sentence here is the answer. The cat probably hates the dog right back, and sees your daughter (correctly) as the reason they're there.

"I still know," said the cat.

They can show their anger in ways like that. Or peeing on the bed, as a cat I used to know did.

But I don't know how to solve it! Maybe lots of attention as soon as she walks into the room so the cat doesn't need to "ask" for attention. Or start talking calmly when the cat starts to walk over to her. That has helped with some anxiety one cat has, but don't know how much it would help with anger.

We've had the cat it's whole life....it grew up with my daughter (she rescued it actually). When we moved she took the cat. Long story. Anywhooo...the cat has known her her whole life. She's lived exclusively with her the last 4 years.

It could be the cooped up thing. Husband is putting new hardwood floors upstairs and we haven't been able to open up the other jack and jill bedroom that would allow her more room to roam. He's just finished that bedroom so I'm going to have him put the door back on and open up that room for the cats.

Yeah, cooping up a cat (as opposed to a dog) is going to cause all sorts of anxiety for the animal. It's not the cat's fault.

Now, from what you describe, if the cat WAS allowed free roaming privileges, I think she and the dog would sort it out themselves (with the dog likely getting to worst of it).

As for the bites, I get bit all the time. All. The. Time.

One of my cats, he likes to ambush me, and he's never gentle about it. The extent to which I tolerate it depends on how much I do or do not need blood on me.

I wouldn't even begin to know what kind of infection to expect from it. It's a way of life for me. Scratches, bites, it's what they do. They are wild animals, regardless of what we think. It's one reason why I treasure their company. My own little nature show at home.

681 My theory is that low education or intelligence leads women to choose these names, but those same factors lead to bad life choices such as drugs or divorce and live-in boyfriends, which creates the kind of home situation that causes young girls to go into porn later in life.

One of the chapters in the first Freakonomics book IIRC was how how certain names start as high-class, become middle-class, and then low-class. Think "Tiffany" and "Madison" and such.

Other names (John, many others from the Bible) remain popular, others ebb and flow (Emily). Interesting stuff.
