Gloomy ONT

Usually I have a theme or a hook or something in mind for the ONT, but tonight I got nothin', so this one's going to be all over the place like a prehensile colon*. Here, go buy something while I get the links together.

*Turns out the theme is "things suck", at least for the first half of the ONT

Police: 'MS-13 associate' pays gang $100 to have sex with trafficked 14-year-old girl


Obviously this guy is the next Einstein or Bach, and we need him in our country. But hey, who are we to point fingers? It ain't like we're not embracing our own homegrown perverts.


You don't even want to see the picture below that one in the thread. Besides, we need to learn from cultures that weren't started by cis-het white bigots, right? Ancient cultures that far predate the horrors of US imperialism.


You really, really don't want to watch this clip on YouTube. I'm not even going to embed it.


Don't Worry, Be Happy

It'll all be better when we're more like our enlightened European brethren. She Was Getting Treatment for Depression But Otherwise in Good Health. Doctors Euthanized Her I mean, 64 is about at the end of a human's useful life to the state, anyway. After that we're just pensions and healthcare and a drain on resources. It's just a little pin prick and they'll be no more AHHHHHRGH, right?


Wait, did I say Europe? Hell, all we have to do is look north.


Did I say look to the north? Hell, look right here. People Can't Flee These US Cities Fast Enough. Then there's this bit of back-to-the-1970s-future. Bystanders spit at, throw soda on, a group of soldiers waiting for a bus.

Gah, I should avoid the news, it's bad for my mental health. Question: What's better, knowing what's going on, or the bliss of ignorance?

It's a Different World

Watch 2 adorably clueless teens, 17, baffled by a rotary phone
It took them 4 minutes to figure it out. Speaking of outdated references, the Canoe-head singing the Star Spangled Banner before the Flames/Panthers game tonight sang it like he had a stomach flu and needed to use the can right now. My thought was “Holy cow, this guy sounds like an LP played at 78”. How many 17 year olds would get that reference? He was a little better on Oh Canada, sounded like someone had turned the speed down to 45.


Lets Close With Some Feel Good Stories

Rob Lowe on Dancing With Snow White and Getting the Last Laugh Back in the 80s, Lowe didn't seem to be much more than just another airhead member of the Brat Pack, destined for obscurity. Since he got clean, however, he's shown a marked level of substance. I like him.

But now, it turns out there was an error in the researchers’ analysis that invalidates their initial conclusion, and the study has been retracted."

113 ***TOP FIVE OTHER THINGS YOU CAN DO WITH YOUR 'LOVE RUG' ONCE YOUR LOVED ONE LEAVES YOU***

5. Cut it into strips and use as rope for lots of handy things around the house, such as lassoing and stealing other kids' frisbees off neighbors' roofs, or hanging yourself

4. Shred it and eat it like cereal every morning. Love rugs are known to contain lots of healthy industrial-grade fiber to keep your colon humming as reliably as a Peterbilt truck

3. Extra luxurious beach towel for those surfside visits in the summer. Impress all the beach bunnies!

2. Works as a super extra-absorbent blanket to wipe away your tears of inconsolable loneliness after your Love Rug soulmate leaves

"Largely considered a 'psychotic fortunately defused,' this failed painter, author, musician and animator was the benefactor of 'the Horde's' largess, potentially (as he insisted we say) averting...and we are forced to quote, 'one of those really big things, what are they called? Extinction events! Yeah, that's it!'

The current whereabouts of this being are currently unknown, but it is common knowledge he possesses none of the infinity stones. He does have a Wacom pen, and an unreliable phone, much like the worst president ever known, but the course of history is unlikely to be changed by these commercially available products."

...Sorry. Every now and then, it hits particularly hard. You folks are really, truly terrific and the best folks I have ever encountered in my life, and I apologize for the odd need to be indulged. I love all of you, and hope you have a terrific weekend.

The best way I can put this is to relate to the riders (requirements on site) for some bands I have worked with. One called for a large bowl of M&Ms with all the brown ones removed. Talking thousands of them to go through. His requirements are equally stupid and vain.

Also, he expected a perfect technical show, but would not do the 30-60 minutes of prep work with the sound/lighting/video crew to make it happen. No rehearsal, as his time was "too valuable" for that.

Borne from another uniquely American art form, the blues. When I first started listening to jazz, I was pretty lost until I started noticing all the songs that were in the blues form of I-IV-V. A big ol' lightbulb went off then.

256 lin-duh, I enjoy blues a lot too.

Although I admit, it's a pretty cloistered format of music. Pretty much only a handful of basic melodies and themes.

But in the right hands, performed by really talented people, it still works, over and over and over again.

And yeah, just like rock, jazz has some annoying themes it keeps hammering. Such as, if you listen to New Orleans stuff, 'Birdland.' Manhattan Transfer just could never stop singing about that.

So are the small bands of the late 40s early 50s. Before Bop and Hard Bop took over.


but throughout there have always been guys doing it right.

Early Mingus. Monk's quartet. Brubeck.
Shit, Count Basie and his orchestra worked right up through the 80s. You could see them all over the place.

The key to Robbins' shtick I think, is that he lures people in with a way to run your business better, but then he sets the hooks with self-improvement stuff.

None of the concepts he seems to teach is really objectionable or even new, but the self improvement aspects makes you think you are talking to the business equivalent of cross-fit devotees.

It gets better, not just dedicating his bio to Tony on the same level as is wife, but he now sends morning messages based on Robbin's Emotional Triad, whatever in the blue stupid fuck that is.

e.g. Today's message is about Focusing on your State and how you can change your State with a better Focus. Thats almost ad verbatim.

They also have tony robbins mastery classes for coworkers now.

I am less than enthusiastic about it all to say the least, for which they would tell me I need to Focus on changing my normal State to a better State.

I thought this kind of corporate horseshit was a one off thing, but my last job with a completely different company had the same bullshit, and a fried of mine works for an accounting firm heavily into the Law of Attraction Oprah horseshit. It seems to be everywhere.

I made the mistake of suggesting a book to the office manager here that had a chapter regarding why Tony Robbins would not appeal to introverts like me, and now he's been a nasty asshole to me ever since because I shit on his little idol. I ddint even say anything derogatory about Robbins, just that certain people might not have the same perspective.

One company I worked for was actually unique in my experience and tried to get training for managers/leadership- which is something that I have observed is sorely lacking at most places.

So they ran their existing leadership team (management) through classes like 'Lean Manufacturing', 'How to train people and write good work instructions.' Nothing revolutionary, but important things that most people just expect people off the street to know and just do for some strange reason- then get pissed off when the newly minted managers don't know how to do it.

It was good stuff, although I did not think at the time they followed through on it enough.

That one's been around a while, I played with it in 2003. Very easy to point-and-click and get a musical phrase out, then loop it and see what else you can build from it. Nice to hear it's still around.

If you have a Mac, you probably already have GarageBand, which is roughly the same thing. GB also lets you sample from live instruments and incorporate them into your recordings. If you've got a Mac, GB should be free to install from the App Store.

361 Jazz is not for everybody. I assume we're talking old school Jazz, from Thelonious Monk, or Cannonball Adderly. I sort of like Miles Davis "Kind of Blue" but.. Is it because I'm "supposed" to like it?

One thing, most, if not all, of the big hits from the 50s and 60s and 70s - we're played by session musicians. You didn't really think they'd waste valuable and expensive studio time letting Dennis Wilson try to play drums on take 53? Nope. They needed to get it done. Guys like Glen Cambell, Tommy Tedesco, Hal Blaine, a whole bunch of people you never heard of. That's who is playing on your favorite records.

Most of those guys, were in turn Jazz musicians. It's true. Playing pop music was a piece of cake for them. One thing I've learned after learning to play a little, in my opinion, is the REALLY good musicians don't always get appreciated, and probably never made a lot of money compared to the famous names.

Very few people can name any of them, although some huge stars came from them, including both Sonny *and* Cher, Glen Campbell, and Harry Nilsson.

393 Interestingly, the Beatles would often times have three or four bands opening for them. Basically anyone they liked and wanted to help promote.

And they didn't perform live for very long, mostly just from 1963 to '66. When they *did* perform live, their shows were literally only 45 minutes to an hour long. Probably because they literally couldn't hear themselves playing a lot of the time, over the screaming girls. PA tech at that time was supposedly horrible.

415 402 Main Stream Protestant churches are definitely not growing. Maybe there are some more conservative/evangelical churches taking parishioners away from other churches, but the over all church attendance is shrinking.

Look at the empty cathedrals of Europe. Many of them are more tourist destination than place of worship. They are more examples of historical art and engineering than they are active evangelists of the Good News.

My sister and her family went to a church plant that eventually failed. They were there when it went from a storefront to borrowed space at another denomination's seminary to an actual church which then closed down. The closure was mostly due, IIRC, the pastor getting cancer and the church relying too heavily upon him. At the last service, many of the old congregants showed up and were lamenting the church's demise. My sister nearly lost it because her family had poured so much energy into the church while these people had just left. To this day I wish she had smacked those people (metaphorically) with a cluebat.

448 Someone upthread said there's nothing particularly new or objectionable to Robbins schtick, and I would agree with that. He also is geared towards people in sales-type jobs, and those people can benefit from energy and enthusiasm, which goes a long way in those fields (exhibit #1 for the prosecution is Robbins himself. Remember what his job is-it's to sell you on the value of the money you shelled out to attend his seminar, and to sell you book/tapes/podcasts/future seminars, etc.. How does he accomplish this? Using energy and enthusiasm. Q.E.D.). I'm in that type of field and I've seen co-workers who have improved dramatically after attending a Robbins or Robbins-like seminar.

That being said, remember he's just a salesman, and while there is value in what he's selling, he isn't the messiah or some new guru, he isn't doing anything that Zig Zigler or Tom Hopkins haven't done before, he's just more...flamboyant about it.

Finally, I can distill everything he's saying down to a three word phrase that, if you utilize it, will result in every bit as much success as a dozen Robbins seminars: get to work. Sales is a hard job because most people don't want to put in the effort it takes to be super successful. get to work, work your ass off at the hard, no-fun parts of your job like prospecting, customer service and follow up, and you'll be successful (within limits, if you have no aptitude or skill and refuse to learn any, the hardest worker will fail, it's usually not a really good profession for true introverts, for example). Hard work makes up for an awful lot of flash and dazzle.

461 Somewhere on YouTube, there is a mix of Dolly Parton singing "Jolene" at 33 RPM or whatever. I mean a 45 RPM record. Or just slowed down or whatever.

If you haven't heard it, take a listen!

I like interesting stories about recordings, the nuts and bolts, the trivia. A fair number of #1 hits were not necessarily thought of in those terms, sometimes, though not always. Once in a while a band would be tasked to come up with another song - anything - to fill up an album. So the filler song, an old tune they had kicking around, or the "B" side becomes the hit after it gets played. The music business as far as I know is pretty much dead. At least the business model is. They have to tour these days. Nobody is buying south pacific island lairs like they were in the 60s and 70s off album sales.

Posted by: Cicero (@cicero) at January 11, 2019 11:33 PM (UGqF

Correct. I saw Led Zeppelin 3 times in Seattle, and they never had a warmup band.

Interesting local angle on Led Zeppelin. In 1969, there was a concert facility in a suburb on Seattle's Eastside in Woodinville called the Gold Creek Dome. The headliner band was The Doors. An unknown band from England, Led Zeppelin, was the warmup.

They were supposed to play a half dozen songs and then clear the stage. The crowd was going crazy and demanded a couple of encores. LZ did it.

About 20 minutes later, The Doors came on. They lasted about 4 songs, until they were booed off the stage. The crowd screamed for more Led Zeppelin, and they came back and played another few songs.


No I wasn't there, but an older cousin, who was in the local music scene, was and told me the story.

And Humble Pie was underrated.

Activision has other problems too. After they "bravely" decide to make another Overwatch chrarcter gay they've had a lawsuit filed against them in federal court for harassment and discrimination. Oh along with the controversy of "overwatch Ellie" a girl that had been recruited to a pro team and then it was revealed that she was actually a he after the sjw npc game journalists all wrote about how "she" was harassed for being a girl and didn't join the team.

I am not a mouthpiece of the left, nor a homosexual. I just try to lift up Jesus, proclaim the Gospel, love people as much as God gives me the strength to do so, pray a lot, read the scripture and other devotional books and leave it up to God. Some of you complain about womens ordination after I leave if you want to to but I never debate that because it's pointless for me.

Nope. It's not even dead now, it's still there, the Republicans just zeroed it out. Literally, the penalty is $0. Couldn't get rid of it w/o 60 votes in the senate, and couldn't use reconciliation because removing it would be, on paper anyway, a net cost to the government. The zeroing out applies starting this year, it was still in effect last year.

It's childishly easy to avoid, however. Drop me a line if you need to know how.

This church had just gone through a painful split and the congregation was mostly older and worried about the future.

My mother asked them why, and one said, "We never thought we'd hear a baby's cry in here again!" And now Nephew #4 wants to become a pastor.

545 Fenelon:

As I lay beneath God's grace, I find myself impatient and even angry at the situation before me.

Through His light, I am able to offer hope to those who require salvation and strength.

Through Him, I am granted the love and patience that was once unreachable. Unfathomable to my worried and impatient soul.

As I ask not of God; as I find love through Him to show love to my fellow fallen man, I am granted my own salvation.

Through one moment's patience, faith and pardon can be passed as His lesson to alleviate a burden upon my Brethren.

I seek consolation through the salve of Our Lord, as I find those who may have lost the light.

Yours is a blessed adventure through passage and prose. Through learned study of sadness and joy.

For you, I can only wish blessings as you find and understand them. Through fallen human heart and individual failings, we find that only through giving do we receive.

God love you
God keep you
God bless you.

-In Jesus' name, I pray...

*screetches to a stop*

otho, I have a '93 Fender Jazz Plus V straight into a Fender Rumble 500 combo amp (V3), 2-10's and a bullet tweeter (and only 37 lbs). They only made that bass for about three years in the early '90's. Kubicki designed the Lace Pickups (active, with an off position, which I like because it saves the battery) before he struck out on his own. No pedals. Been my main axe for about 20 years now. It needs a fret job badly, I play round-wound strings.

The slick trick would be to weigh an opossum that is in the process of dying, so we could see if any mass were lost as its soul left its body.

There was a time around the summer (when they all had a randomly-selected nick starting with 'c', as was the style of the day) when they were on topic but still read like computer-generated Mad Libs. Some of them had a gimmick that made it hilarious if you read it in a Borat voice.

Now they'll crash a movie review thread with some bizarre shit like "y trum no liek yams? IMPEACH!". They're not even relevant to the topic. Or show up five hours after everyone's left a thread to get the last word that nobody will ever read, and that doesn't make any sense anyway. This is what happens when the herd doesn't get culled, you get sickly trolls with crippling degenerative neurological diseases staggering through the lawn and garden section at Meijer at 10am, walking into things and foaming and twitching.

I once met a couple at the Monroe Swap Meet in Washington State, who had a baby possum as a pet. It rode on Dad's shoulders. Cute little critter, with about twice as many teeth as it properly ought to have.
Mama said she would stop and check road-killed possums, and often the females would have live young in their pouch. She would rescue the babies, and bottle-feed them.

615 Each day I am granted is a gift. I wish to refuse to wail about my self-driven infirmities, maladies and prior sins that brought me to this precipice. I can only honor my Mother and Father through His beloved understanding of sacrifice, love, hope and light.

I yet pine for "The Days of Old" when the Devil's pitchfork on my shoulder and I laughed about the undying love we had for the Frivolities of Life. Carefree folly through a maze of careless youth.

Useless chiding of mistakes given to the past merely waste time as I navigate the Seas of the Present.

For it is now that I am given to His love, through trial. It is now that I am asked more than I ever thought I had. It is now that finding others of faith and honor is most important.

Without these Fellow Warriors, I am the sole soul upon a battlefield of endless consternation and woe.

This will not be my fate. For it is not the Earthly house in which I reside. It is within the grasp of faith to find His Kingdom where I may reside in His house.

Under His love
Within His care
Through His light

I will persevere.

647 Not sure exactly what you mean by compose, but if you have a keyboard that you can just hunt and peck the note you're looking for, these might be helpful. VERY basic.

I've seen huge possums on the California Central Coast, in San Diego County, and in Santa Clarita. Maybe I've lived in neighborhoods where the garbage is full of growth hormones and fats.

The Common Cormorant or shag

Lays eggs inside a paper bag.

The reason you will see no doubt

It is to keep the lightning out.

But what these unobservant birds

Have never noticed is that herds

Of wandering bears may come with buns

And steal the bags to hold the crumbs.

711 Greetings, Morons.

My 'possum story:

Couple o' months ago our dog finds two baby 'possums hiding out in our jasmine vine. Dog, out of curiosity, nabs one of the possums then drops it, and it scurries across the yard and into a small space between a low concrete retaining wall and the fence between our yard and the neighbor's. Average Wife shuffles the dog inside, I don a pair of gloves and nab the other 'possum out of the vine, and put it in a cage.

Average Daughter calls animal control, since the 'possums were quite young and their mother was no where to be found. Animal control comes, helps me try to locate the 'possum behind the retaining wall, which we did, briefly, but it eluded us.

So before the animal control officer leaves with the other 'possum, she informs me that my dog is under quarantine because he had contact with wildlife. Takes a pic of the dog, leave me some paperwork. Dog can't leave the house or have contact with other animals for 60 days.

Yeah, right. We resumed life as normal with the dog.

Time passes, I get a call from animal control saying that they had to come see the dog before releasing him from quarantine. I had completely forgotten about it, but played along. I only remembered after they hung up.

So they come, look at the dog, and leave.

A week later, we get a bill from animal control for $50.

Bastards.

tl:dr: If your pet interacts with wildlife, don't tell anyone from the gov't.

I started choking there. Sure. Unassuming vintage MBZ. I mean, talk about your lame, basic transportation.


Then I got to the contents: a Faberge egg and a Staridivarius. Lying on the seats. Uninsured.

754 Possum'/Opossum story.

So i was alone in the house. I heard a strange scratching noise. This noise was scary as hell. I went to the sun room, and through a glass door I saw a huge Opossum that seemed sick and possibly rabid. It was scratching at the door and looked sick as hell.

I thought about shooting the thing but this was late at night an the suburbs. I am not sure how clearly I was thinking at the time but I did end up outside with a compound bow with broadheads. I was this close to the thing and had him in my sights with the arrow drawn. Then I realized I could easily send this arrow into the neighbor's yard and that the whole deal should be reconsidered.

In the end, the Opossum left and probably died on its own account. Anyway, it was not the normal night in the 'burbs.

Harvey's is not really that bad, and is not cheap. Sure, there are way better sherries but American's may never get sherry. But Andre? I don't get that one. Try Korbel it is way way better. You want the real stuff, go for Gruet, you can usually get it for $16 bucks. and you can tell people their "champagne" came from New Mexico, which is a conversation starter.

I have not looked into it in years but the way I understand it, the Gallo family owned more wine than basically anyone. The Gallo name was low end, but they owned lots of high end wineries. A decade or so ago the kids took over and started selling high end "Gallo" wine. You don't see that anymore so I guess they gave up on it. I think I heard that Gallo produced more wine than all other states outside of CA. This is from memory, checking the net would be cheating in my world.
