Posted by: t-bird at January 27, 2020 09:39 AM (Z1eux)

58 Picasso and Braque experimented with Cubism. Gris, a very serious and earnest sort, ran with it, and (in my view) took it as far as it could go. Along with Picasso, Gris' Cubist paintings and drawings are among the very few Cubist works that I find aesthetically pleasing.

Braque, the real originator, the guy who came up with the initial idea, was a brilliant conceptualizer but a terrible technician. He just never had mastery of his materials. Granted, attempting to capture time in a two-dimensional picture plane is one of the great challenges in art, so props for trying.

Posted by: troyriser at January 27, 2020 09:39 AM (E2EAq)

59 Interesting. The lack of boldly colorful geometric shapes is perhaps a fault, a serious fault I think we can all agree, but the fun-house mirror aspect is certainly intriguing.

Posted by: Miklos, paraphrasing at January 27, 2020 09:44 AM (QzkSJ)

87 Analytic Cubism. The general idea is that the subject was broken apart into hints of its composite shapes and forms. The viewer was then supposed to analyze the work and piece it back together in his head. In this way, the viewer examines the work deeply and has a personal relationship with it. If this were a Picasso/Braque piece, the work would be much more complex and tougher to read. The colors are usually drab so nothing distracts from the analysis.

Very soon, around this same year, Analytic Cubism will give way to Synthetic Cubism. The Cubism of Picasso and Braque will never devolve to total abstraction. It would get very close tho, which is one of the reasons why Synthetic Cubism was developed.

Yeah, Picasso was a great painter, but didn't care to do the usual.

Schiff must release the IG report, without changes or tampering, which is said to be yet further exoneration of the Impeachment Hoax. He refuses to give it. Does it link him to Whistleblower? Why is he so adamant?

Some people want to believe the anonymous leakers because Trump isn't as smart or savvy as they are and he needs to "get serious".

Others are grabbing this fan fiction based on anonymous leak because it confirms what they believe about Bolton.

Alternate Title:

"Nadler Five Days After He catches the Chinese Coronavirus"



Last night, the movie "Contagion" was on cable.

I'd never seen it and it was actually pretty good.

On the upside:

Gwenyth Paltrow died and had her skull sawed open (Take that, "Seven"!)

On the downside, tens of millions of people died worldwide and it severely disrupted society.


Funny thing was, "Contagion" rhymed a lot with the current Chinese Coronavirus

Beginning with the plague was "birthed" by bats and pigs.

Avant garde was the goal of Modernist art at the time (and still may be). Something new, something different. A new way to think about art and to look at the world. Art movements at this time were notoriously short-lived-- 5 to 7 years tops before they became too popular and accepted and no longer, by definition, "avant garde". To be new was its reason for existing.

Cubism is probably THE most important modernist style in history, a very close second being Fauvism (To some scholars, they are even). Almost every style in Modernism borrows something from Cubism.

Exactly. The poseurs who wanted and still want to be like Picasso don't get the reality that you have to learn your craft (in this case, putting realistic images on canvas or paper) before you can break the rules of that craft.

In prose terms, you need to be able to write as clearly as Steinbeck before you can break the rules like James Joyce.

Back in the analog cable days, at least where I lived, the premium channels were blocked at the box by little round canisters - they were band-stop filters blocking those particular channels. All you had to do to get the channels was catch the box unlocked (it happened) and pull the filters. If you got caught, play dumb.


My dad was never as proud of me as when I figured that out.

Back in my childhood, there was a pay over the air channel called ON TV. After midnight, they would go to Adults ONly and show porn.

I was in a training class once and we were doing post-course exams. The instructor did this weird thing where we took the exams for each person, but as a class group. To keep it from getting out of control, she put a time limit on it - use one song. It played in the background. If the group finished the exam before the song finished, great. If it took longer than that, you stopped there and submitted the exam.

A lot of people did the predictable ones - American Pie, In In A Gadda Da Vida, etc. I went with John Cage's farce of "4:33." This is a piece of "music" made by the asshole Cage that is actually just silence. There's no music at all. As a result, when playing in background, you don't know when it ended. Unlimited time.

Instructor was not amused.

"But to me, when I see the president do this, you know, as someone who' 's been around awhile, I saw Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan didn't do this. George W. Bush, his dad [George H.W. Bush], none of them did it. Why does Donald Trump think that this is good? It divides the country."

From what I hear, it's not as bad as sars or mers viruses. But it has killed more than the elderly or young, or very weak as they originally claimed. I think it's just another flu virus we need to be aware of and take precautions, like normal during cold and flu season.

313 So.

I hate my Boy Scout district.

Gotta get this out, and it may be a little long so skip to the next post.

My kid's Cub Scout Pack is a bit of a mess. Few volunteer parents, and the Committee Chair was basically phoning it in last year. He left with zero notice in September and left a HUGE mess behind. Since the only other person on the Committee was...me...I now have to clean this mess up. Adding insult to injury, he also acted as Cubmaster and did an even worse job there.

Anyway, got a Cubmaster who is awesome but we're still behind on basic things like, oh, a Pack roster and new applications. Whatever, we're getting it done slowly.

What's now frustrating is the new District Commissioner is being a giant butt. He's very "concerned" that the rechartering is late. Yeah, because there's money for the Council involved here. He "offered" to "help" and is making a hash of everything, pissing off our few remaining volunteers in the process. But hey, this is important because golly we have to get that check written to the Council!

What's more galling is that he's fronting like this is all for the benefit of the Scouts, but when we have actual real issues (and I'll spare you descriptions of the 47 times I called the District for help) he's nowhere to be found. But if the Council thinks we owe them even $50, this Commissioner is calling me two-three times a day.

He promised to help with the Pinewood Derby - never showed up. Later that day he calls me with demands for dues collected by Scout and such. I flipped and told him off but good. This is usually the timeframe where I feel a bit regretful but I gotta say...I don't. Assmunch deserved to get pushback. I said he's worse than my HOA because at least the HOA gets the street plowed and the common area mowed....he doesn't even do that much, only around to take credit for our work.

Sorry to vent. BSA is rocketing down a trough now.

Iranian Christians own no property and have no income because they but the church.
Those Christianity are strong supporters of the Jewish people and Israel.

373 Listen to an expert. Drink more liquor. True Fact - liquor was invented to find some way to keep water drinkable over long periods of time. The alcohol content kills the bacteria."

It wasn't just to keep it drinkable, it was to start off with it being drinkable. In the great Typhus epidemic of London that finally led to the imposition of water quality standards and a public water supply, it was found that one of the few groups who seemed to be immune to the epidemic were working men who only drank beer, never water. Having been boiled during the distillation process, beer was bacteria free.

Going back in time, unless you had your own private well that you were very careful with, all of your water had flocks of sheep and herds of cows crapping in it upstream from you. Not to mention Country Joe and his inbred offspring.

400 Somebody at one of the cable-nets had several classic modern plague movies all cued-up and ready to roll as this story broke several days ago. One that you don't see every day, and has some truly frantic acting, is Elia Kazan's "Panic in The Streets" (1950), with Richard Widmark, Zero Mostel, Jack Palance, and Barbara ("Watch your step Johnny-O!") Bel Geddes.


I remember it as being my first indication that Public Health Service officers wore Navy uniforms and insignia, how fascist-statist it was for an immigrant libertarian who also ratted on the commies, and the main thrust of the plot appearing to be how poorly paid federal civil servants were. Tough tho.


It is a noir film indeed, with a gritty close-up look at why my Aunt Miriam from Leesville often told me that NYC was just muscling in on the Mafia history that rightfully belonged to New Orleans.

438 In Oz, even the cake kills you.

Sydney (AFP) - A woman died while taking part in a cake-eating competition to celebrate Australia Day, local media reported Monday.

Paramedics were called to a pub in the state of Queensland on Sunday afternoon after a woman was involved in a "medical incident".

Public broadcaster ABC reported the 60-year-old had a seizure after she "shovelled a lamington into her mouth".

440 Somebody at one of the cable-nets had several classic modern plague movies all cued-up and ready to roll as this story broke several days ago. One that you don't see every day, and has some truly frantic acting, is Elia Kazan's "Panic in The Streets" (1950), with Richard Widmark, Zero Mostel, Jack Palance, and Barbara ("Watch your step Johnny-O!") Bel Geddes.


I remember it as being my first indication that Public Health Service officers wore Navy uniforms and insignia, how fascist-statist it was for an immigrant libertarian who also ratted on the commies, and the main thrust of the plot appearing to be how poorly paid federal civil servants were. Tough tho.


It is a noir film indeed, with a gritty close-up look at why my Aunt Miriam from Leesville often told me that NYC was just muscling in on the Mafia history that rightfully belonged to New Orleans.

Panting, sweaty, feverish grisly death "on the waterfront."

I saw it again recently. It was filmed on location in pre-"We're a theme park now!" New Orleans. You can see the original riverfront with its warehouses. The block that Widmark and wife Bel Geddes live on, we're shown, is as poorly paved a bit of street as this place has to offer (I bet you it hasn't been paved much since 1950), and nobody seems to have air conditioning in homes or offices. A very good glimpse of the city before Tourism became the be-all and end-all.

Oh, and it is a good noir, too.

Youngsters who haven't been around hospitals much don't understand that one of the worst things that can happen to someone who's sick is that they take so many strong antibiotics that all of their gut bacteria is wiped out. When that happens the intestinal tract starts to malfunction in all kinds of nasty and painful ways like spastic colon and all of that. A lot of people have had sections of their intestines surgically removed when probably all they really had was a gut bacteria problem.

Commissioner is angling to try and insert a Friends of Scouting fundraiser/begathon talk in our February Blue and Gold dinner. Said it's ideal because all the parent will be there.

I told him to forget it - the parents are there to accept our thanks for them being a part of our Pack, to hand out PWD trophies, and so on. They aren't there to get lectured to with a hand out for more money by the District.

Well, I didn't say all that - I just said "Gosh, the program is already very full and I don't think we have time for that. I'll ask the B&G coordinator. Stand by."

Yeah, no way am I buying dinner for that grifter.

My hometown ditched the Boy Scouts several years ago because all the money was going out of the local org and into the national. Now most only did cub scouts up to the 4th or 5th grade so there weren't any full fledged Boy Scout groups beyond that and you had to go county level I think. They replaced the Cub Scouts stuff with a boys club. They essentially do all the exact same stuff without the Boy Scout name.

If you're interested I could probably reach out to find out what they all did and if your area would have the interest to ditch the dying organization but continue with the local tradition.

I use them when I am sick but absolutely *must* be in the office. This is rare. My box of 20 masks has been around for years. They're sealed and should be fine. I have only used a few of them - I try to stay home when I'm sick.

499 infectious contagions have at times (and with good reason) been compared to a wildfire.

The rate and extent of the spread hinges on multiple factors. The suggestion that this virus is genetically similar to SARS suggests there will be a similar pattern of contagion.

Mathematical modeling of contagion is helpful but not infallible.

Lay reporters when interviewing an epidemiologist or infectious disease specialist will likely be given a range of possible severity and the headline will scream the worst-case scenario presented.

Be aware, stay informed, but don't light your hair on fire. Sneeze-uational awareness.

There is another possibility.

In order to believe Team Trump was blindsided by this you have to believe Trump is and idiot who doesn't realize there are disloyal people in his administration who are constantly leaking and trying to bring him down. That seems unlikely to me.

I also doubt that Bolton has decided to kneecap Trump and go against the team he has supported his entire career to side with people who hate him and who he hates. The Democrats have no idea at all what Bolton will say and it seems to me the odds are way in the favor of him saying LOL GFY.

Trump has a yuge, bigly advantage - he knows he didn't do what he's being accused of.

Almost unfair, really. Yeah - let's just shut this all down, quietly, and avoid making a scene.

Nah - on second thought, let's make a scene.

As far as athletes go he was a good egg.


I heard a story retold that he was being interviewed during the Olympics and he said he was proud to be representing his country and the interviewer said that that wasn't considered a cool sentiment in this day and age.


Koby replied, it's always cool to represent your country.


So apparently he wasn't a typical basketball deschebag.

611 Most Libertarian-haters these days are from the nudge-liberaltarian era, and hate Hillary stooges who were never any kind of libertarian in the first place. But if you are old enough to have quit The Party a long time ago, you'll remember Harry Browne and his get-rich-slow schemes. Old radical libertarians used to characterize him and his bright-eyed enthusiasts as "How You Can Profit from The Coming Cholera Epidemic."

That's only funny if you actually remember him, or his many books.

Remember that kook in the early 80's who had the "Dow" books? Wild predictions of where the Dow might go someday. Like, "Dow 20,000."
And we laughed...
