I read that the Florence was coming for us because Trump didn't know enough about climate change.

My theory is that he has read two papers on climate change, knocking it down two categories, and he's working his way through a third.

45 Well, figuring out when it's from is no fun today because the drawer put the date right on it.

The artist has a definite affinity for the male form. Those are well rendered bodies.

I absolutely don't get it. Why would Dante and Virgil want to bite each other in the neck? Who's the guy on the ground who's out of the fight?

What are the Cardinal and the Toga Party guy looking at? Did they bet this fight? Why is the demon laughing, did he rig this bet?

So many, many questions, mostly consisting of "why?".

87 However, since this painting speaks to something that has been gnawing (SWIDT?) at me for about a month or more, I give you something I read recently - The Letter From Beyond.

I quote: It is the story of a young woman, Anne, who met an unexpected death, faced God at her private judgment, and was condemned to that terrible forever of suffering in Hell. Anne relates her fate in a letter, which she delivers to a friend, Claire, in a dream.

You can imagine Claire's shock. She had heard the news about her friend's car accident and sudden death only that morning. It upset her since she realized Anne was not a good Catholic, and she said some prayers for Anne's soul. Then, that night, she had a dream, so vivid it seemed real. In it, Anne delivered a letter addressed to her.
Do not pray for me, the letter read, for I am condemned. I didn't take God seriously. I didn't take advantage of the many graces He gave me in this life. I made a god of pleasure, of my own self-satisfaction and whims, of the good things of this life. And now I am suffering an afterlife of eternal torment.

Nobody noticed that Trump had Iceland moved down to 50 miles off the coast of North Carolina to cool the waters and decrease the energy transferred to Flo. He'll have it hauled back as soon as its usefulness is finished. Unless, of course, the Icelandic people prefer to stay in a place where the temperatures don't get down to Lunar levels.

You've started too late. When his daughter was born, my brother said he was already looking at boys with more suspicion.

What you should have done was 5 years ago, to get a Rottweiler, and have him trained to be (a) absolutely devoted to your daughter, and (b) to attack teenaged boys at sight. No boy, no problem, to paraphrase Stalin.

I think Katrina was Cat5 at one point in the Atlantic. It came in to Louisiana as a Cat 3. New Orleans is actually inland quite a ways, so Katrina was Cat1 or 2 when it reached the city, but a lot of water had already been pushed into the lakes (Pontachartrain and Borgne), and across the marshes to the south.

I don't know whether or not Spielberg knew Lincoln was a Republican or not--I'm sure he did--but the comment I heard ( in publicity interview for the release of Lincoln) was more about the Republicans as a party. He was surprised to learn that they were the opposite of what they are today. Or something like that.
Hollywood gets a lot wrong. In Scorcese's Gangs of New York, the villain Bill the Buthcher who was anti-immigrant was painted as also being racist and pro-slavery. Total bullshit. The Nativists like Bill were anti-immigrant (and anti-Catholic) but they were abolitionists interested in the welfare of blacks-who after all were native born and Protestant.

Remember Ain't It Cool News?

Harry Knowles, the founder, was apparently (and unsurprisngly) a bit of a creep. He was a disabled fat guy who found some level of fame from the internet and couldn't quite behave himself with female fans (no rape, just lots of inappropriate touching).

Anyway, when that came out, I had largely stopped paying attention to the site because it had become boring, but I couldn't help but troll the site with comments defending Knowles.

"He voted Democrat, so he obviously did nothing wrong," sort of stuff. It took a surprisingly long time (about 2 days) for the moderators (who was probably Knowles himself) from blocking me.

It was amusing.

184 We've seen other William-Adolphe Bouguereau paintings before. Usually nudes from the classics. His ability to paint skin tones and physiques is as good as any artist. But today's painting takes those attributes and puts them in an incredibly powerful image. I find much of his work exquisite but this one adds power. Frazetta could have done this.

That Bouguereau's works went out of fashion because it wasn't in the avant-garde of art, as if there can be only one TRUE style, is disturbing but not surprising.

A. Trump gets the blameB. 1. for the hurricane being so strong 2. or for the hurricane being so wet 3. or for wasting so many resources on such a small hurricane 4. or for causing global warming which causes hurricanes

If Florence is vengeance upon America, it must be because we're not forcing the rest of Europe to become independent from Russia fast enough. Once that's done, then they can turn to cleaner natural gas and begin to lower their own emissions.

250 OK, how about something cheery? And this is cheery, despite how I'll introduce it.

One of the most popular music hall performers of the late Victorian and Edwardian era was Marie Lloyd.

https://tinyurl.com/y88vjupz

Known as "Queen of the Music Hall," she began performing as a child, making a professional debut in 1885 at the age of 15. Her performances were lively, with a good deal of back-and-forth with the audience, but they were criticized as risqué, and she spent her career in conflict with theatrical censors.

She suffered through abusive marriages, financial reverses and changes in taste, so that by 1919, her star was on the wane. Luckily for her, that year she was given her most famous song, "My Old Man (Said Follow the Van)," which remained a staple in her act until her death in 1922.

In 2006, the BBC featured actress Jessie Wallace in a documentary of her life, Miss Marie Lloyd, Queen of the Music Hall, with recreations of her act.

Here's Wallace in "My Old Man." Every time I watch this, I weep, whether it's from misguided nostalgia, anger / depression or because I'm just psychologically fucked up, I don't know. But for you, it's two minutes of sheer joy:

Brutus was close enough to Caesar to be a son (some rumors said he WAS), and Cassius, despite being an early opponent, was appointed to various offices by Caesar after his defeat. It was a thing with Caesar to put defeated enemies in places that looked like he'd forgiven them; he likely intended to do that with his former son-in-law Pompey except the little Pythagoran prick had killed him.

I guess Dante thought Cassius should have been loyal after being appointed to an office?

Who is leaving these blue states?

There are sizable red sections of the states that might be more inclined to move south that those in the cities.

I honestly don't know, but it doesn't seem so clear cut to me that someone moving out of Illinois will be a liberal rather than a conservative.

391 Even the Government of PR admits this is a 6 month total. If someone was speeding and died in a car wreck 5 1/2 months after the hurricane, the study says well he must have been speeding because the hurricane gave him PTSD, so he's a casualty of the hurricane and is included in the total.

I'm serious, wish I was just being sarcastic, but I'm not.

Posted by: Tom Servo at September 13, 2018 10:42 AM (k1TUh)


Not exactly. There is no attempt to attribute cause. It is a straight numbers game. Here is what the study says about its methodology:

For observed mortality, we used records for all deaths occurring from September 2017-February 2018, provided by the Puerto Rico Vital Statistics Records (PRVSR) division of the Puerto Rico Department of Health (DoH). The estimates of excess all-cause mortality attributable to the hurricane are the result of comparing the projections for the census and displacement scenarios to observed mortality in the vital registration data.

So, yes, all deaths in the 6 months after the hurricane, if they are more than a calculated average adjusted by other factors, are "excess."

This has never been done for calculating deaths in any other event. Ever.

I had friends visit DC this summer and they stopped into the Trump Hotel DC, which is owned by the government, is leased to Trump and is on the National Historic Register after the completely restored the empty building and turned it into four or five star hotel.

Also, bear in mind that Trump divested his company to Eric and Don Jr. and everything is in a blind trust. There is zero chance the liquor board or whoever in DC is going to deny a multi million dollar hotel in the heart of DC a liquor license because one of it's shareholders makes liberals upset.

I tracked down the story, looked at what they claim.

Then she forgot all about it and never said anything to anyone at all about it for 40 years.

We estimate that in mid-September 2017 there were 3,327,917 inhabitants and in mid-February 2018 there were 3,048,173 inhabitants of Puerto Rico, representing a population reduction by approximately 8%. We factored this into the migration "displacement scenario" and compared it with a "census scenario," which assumed no displacement from migration in the hurricane's aftermath. We found that, historically, mortality slowly decreased until August 2017, and that rates increased for the period of September 2017 through February 2018, with the most dramatic increase shown in the displacement scenario accounting for post-hurricane migration.

512 All these Bohemian Rhapsody jokes reminds me that there's an interesting little trend on youtube the last few months of mostly millennial black hip hop fans listening to classic rock for the first time, and loving it. And Queen seems to be these dudes' favorite band, along with Pink Floyd.

515 Bouguereau became a student at the École des Beaux-Arts.[4] To supplement his formal training in drawing, he attended anatomical dissections and studied historical costumes and archeology. He was admitted to the studio of François-Édouard Picot, where he studied painting in the academic style. Dante and Virgil in Hell (1850) was an early example of his great, Neo-Classical works.

So he was just doing this as an exercise, to learn anatomy. He probably didn't enjoy it.

518 May said, basically, we never asked Freddie and if you wanted to know you should have asked him before he died."

I remember another interview years back where one of the band members said they were in the studio working on it, and they just started throwing Italian words into it because it was operatic and a lot of fun, and it was mostly just a big fun day of goofing around for their own entertainment. And that none of them ever thought it would turn out to be so popular.

There's a lot of neat little classical structuures they throw into that song that you don't really notice - first of all, the mood and tempo changes at various points give it an epic storytelling vibe, with an opening, then dramatic action, finally a denouement, and the "poor boy" sets up a statement/counterstatement Greek Chorus effect with "will you let me go?" "BISMILLAH, NO! WE WILL NOT LET YOU GO!!!"

And of course, if you're going to go all the way over the top, the final ending just HAS to be a giant GONGNGNGNG..

Apparently it's song lyrics being quoted so it's all o.k. and we're just supposed to ignore it.

525 And people are surprised when companies settle lawsuits instead of always fighting them. This is a perfect example of a nuisance complaint/suit. Imagine having one of these pop up every day against your company and yet you have to respond to it.

530 seeing this on a big monitor for the first time today.


Bougueareau's technical excellence is just jaw-dropping. The head of the dark haired man, the bitee - is just perfect. And it's hard to get the proportions right when a head is tilted at that angle, there's reverse foreshortening going on.


The ginger devil's body is all out of whack and misshapen - look at his ribcage. The profile on Dante - classical Roman. This is just a great work, one by Bougueaureau I hadn't expected.

Added benefit: the devil's victim is a ringer for my Sicilian boyfriend of years past. Glad to see he's getting his just desserts.
