Pre-Labor Day Weekend Quarantine Cafe: Goth Party!

I know I posted Goth Nightclub Dancing Bats before.

But people have made new mixes.


Here's an old one from 2013, featuring a traditional bat folk dance:

Happy weekend!

4 Crazy bats!

5 I got darkly willowed just now:

"Yes, I know most Rosenbaums are Jewish"

How *do* you know that?
There's no Jew-name census. Cohen would be different, given that that
name actually refers to Jewish priests, as in the cohanim (plural).
(Whether cohanim are technically rabbis I don't know.) Actually, holy
matzah, I should start an all-MOT heavy metal cover band and call it
"Jewds Us Priest".

25 I was just reading about a Rosenberg. First name Alfred.

... from the old East, who got exiled to Germany and joined the NSDAP just so he could rule over the East again and kill him some Jews. Jews which weren't him. Because he wasn't Jewish.

A lot of these names are Eastern Germanic, which the local Jews took on just like the local Germans.

43 ...here is what I think it is - ace has been turned by the ChiComs and been tasked by his handler (code name "Quon") to give bats a good name. "Quon" used to give him instructions written in vinegar on rice paper at the seedy massage parlor named "Clouds of Peasure"....

107 don't know if Goth is just a weird way of dressing or some philosophy

An attitude, like punk, but [even] more cynical. The whole genre came out of "post" punk outfits like early Cure and Joy Division. Mostly English because, face it, life in Britain before Maggie was depressing.

110 Also, because I know we have so many cinema fans here:

Paramount Pictures is announcing, they're gonna release a new cut of Godfather III. The new title is "The Godfather Coda: The Death Of Michael Corleone."

This version should be extra special. They've restored the scene of Connie and Kay being dropped into the volcano, as well as all the musical comedy numbers, including the special-effects-laden duet between Corleone and Tony "Scarface" Montana singing together, "I'm Just A Boy Who Can't Say No!"

You might as well try to convince us that he's secretly gay and likes fat furries.

Actually, I would believe that before I'd believe these fake quotes.

302 Puddleglum, I've read that in Godfather III Michael is eaten alive by guilt over killing Fredo.
Posted by: qdpsteve


Yes, through out the whole movie that was always in the background, grinding Michael down. It was even affecting his health. GIII isn't a terrible movie, just uneven. Plus it's unfairly compared to GI and GII, which were cinematic masterpieces.

314 My introduction to goth came as a frosh at UC/SD in 1985 because I joined the campus radio station. I liked the aesthetic and mopey nature though I didn't dress the part (alcohol > new clothes). The music was ok: now-classic goth (Siouxsie, Sisters, Cure, etc.) and the industrial sibling (early Skinny Puppy, etc.) However, I had just developed a serious thing for early 70's hard rock deep cuts (basically, Blue Oyster Cult's first 3 albums and other bands that would have fit the bill). We had a DJ who did a metal show and he actually knew Dave Mustaine; got him and the rest of Megadeth to do a promo cart for the station. (Carts were like 8-tracks with pre-recorded PSAs or promos or whatever.) The really cool cart was from a DJ who knew Ian Hunter (Mott the Hoople) and got him to record a promo cart.

I was DJ'ing the night Gene Loves Jezebel played on campus, a few hundred feet away. I was told to let them in if they wanted, but no one else. Apparently the show was so good that the crowd practically chased the band into the station and I barred the door just ahead of it. (The station had a very thick, wood plank for that purpose.) Thankfully that was not the night I tried acid and shrooms for the first time.

"Agencies are instructed to identify any contracts or agency spending that funds programs teaching federal employees about critical race theory and/or white privilege.

Including any effort to teach or suggest that either "the United States is an inherently racist or evil country" or that "any race or ethnicity is inherently racist or evil."

They are all taking a breather, between the Covid nonsense and the election.

Hannity has been taking most Fridays off all summer. I think it was because he was on so much during the beginning of the Covid and built up a lot of vacation time.

407 I have some envy for those who can master more than
one language. I was supposed to have an aptitude for it, but somewhere
in the brain there has to be the ability to slide from one to the other,
and every time I tried it wasn't hard, but it felt, not like sliding,
but like crawling over broken glass.

Posted by: BurtTC at September 04, 2020 07:45 PM (hku12)

My problem is that i would bounce from one to the other. I do the same with other interests and i guess that makes me well rounded. But modern society is not all the supportive of the well rounded individual. Comparative advantage is what is mostly rewarded.
Anyway, I probably know a few hundred words in more than a couple languages. I took this stuff in college but I doubt I have met many who can truly speak another language well unless they have a good reason. There is usually a specific reason such as living abroad a long time or living around foreign language speakers here as far as I have seen. It is one think to study some verbs and read some literature, but another to speak a foreign language with ease.

it works both ways though. We had many native Spanish speakers who took Spanish in school and were not much better than the others. There are many illiterate people but pretty much everyone can speak their native tongue.

420 I am utterly hopeless at learning other languages, though I've learned that even a little helps. After 4 years of German, I had barely enough to check in at a hotel, but that's better than nothing.

Especially the time I got into a taxi in Hamburg, gave the address, (some-number) (some-Strasse), and the driver replied in German. Really fortunate that I knew he was saying "we have no (some-Strasse)." At which point I knew to pull out a map and prove to him that there was such a street. I don't really blame him; Hamburg goes on quite a ways.

431 Braenyard, thanks for posting that (re "critical race theory" administration action).

Somewhat reassured at how quickly they acted, and only a bit disappointed that there was (obviously) no systematic review earlier, to remove this toxic idiocy.

But note the really illustrative first paragraph, the lead paragraph, of the story. "With November looming" - as if this is some unreasonable move regarding some obscure, unobjectionable govt. training program.

And, even better - "opened a new front in the culture war". WTFFF?

This is so good, it's really an excellent example of the gross distortion (not "bias") that has destroyed the press as a legitimate or useful source of information for the citizenry.

The *entire* "culture war" is an offensive by the racists, the historical illiterates, the freaks, the authoritarians, those seeking to destroy and control. All actions against it are by definition defensive, reactive.

And the "front" in the "culture war" represented by "critical race theory", which is just absurd, vile racist gibberings, hate, resentment, and ignorance, was - obviously - opened by the racist-authoritarians, years ago.

Trump has not "opened" or started any conflicts or "fronts". He's just taking a very, very over-due step to begin purging the toxins. Reactive, defensive.

This one paragraph is an outstanding example of how *everything*, every topic, every story, that isn't simply omitted or buried, is distorted beyond recognition, inverted, by media distortion.

Hello!

Generally speaking, I prefer EdP, or best of all, pure parfum.

I like very rich, deep perfumes best. I could do without top notes altogether, I think. EdP and extraits are usually much richer because of less alcohol, so that's probably why I prefer them?

I would argue men could wear most extraits and I think it sucks that they don't get sold in men's fragrances.

And of course I hate the gender labels anyway.

Local news here is concerned that we are trying to minimize the Covid death count.

"President Trump retweeted a blog post claiming the true national death toll is closer to 9,000. That prompted both the Centers for Disease Control and Indiana health commissioner Kristina Box to explain that post is wrong.

Box says the claim stems from a misunderstanding of CDC data, which show 94% of coronavirus death certificates list other contributing causes of death. That's just a reaffirmation of what Box and other health officials have warned for months: people with underlying health conditions are at greater risk from coronavirus. Box says a death certificate will list those contributing causes. But she says conditions like high blood pressure or diabetes don't mean coronavirus isn't the cause of death, any more than they'd be the cause of death for a cancer patient whose tumors metastasize."

Same with Russian class. With a very few exceptions, Russian-Americans thought the class would be an easy A, and discovered that:

1) They came over here when they were seven, and although they could speak kitchen Russian, they couldn't read or write Russian very well.

2) There are enough Russians in Portland that a English-Russian patois has developed, with a lot of English grammatical structures, so they didn't even have Russian grammar nailed down very well.

488 Foreign language instruction for adults or even teens is a tough road really. Like I said, I know few who easily speak another language who took some classes in school. The flaw is once you leave the class, you revert to your own tongue.

If we look back on it, we realize we didn't learn to speak English in school. You learn that at home and with your friends. You learn to write and read at school, but not to speak.

OF course there are exceptions. If you are really motivated, you can do it. I know people who took the courses offered by the state department and went whole hog. But there is usually a reason such as a job or assignment abroad. The only other thing I have seen is people who lived on the border and had to learn to speak with others just to get on with the business at hand.

490 Ordinary American, D. Horowitz (Conservative Review one) has been screaming about this (he screams about everything, yet is mostly correct, so, an odd situation) for a while, think he just did an article or podcast on it. The attempt to institutionalize this baseless unscientific authoritarian s**t-show.

The fact that so many Americans are now illiterate (whatever their education or profession) and compliant North Korean-like creatures might make almost any effort to return to normal difficult.

But as long as vandals like Newsome and DeWine and Doucey and Whitmer et al have top cover from CDC, it's pretty hopeless. Unless the business sector revolt gets much more serious.

The CDC and the WH task force are a disaster, have been for months, and absent radical fixing of both, risk of longer term damage pretty high.

I had a reason that I missed the thread about the WSP busting antifa. Damn, I have been on that very spot of freeway thousands of times.

Got a call from an old friend who works for UPS as a driver. Haven't talked to him in over a year. He's also the union steward for his depot. He is good with people, and also knows how to read the fine print, and also will not back down to anyone.

He has worked for them maybe 12 years, and has been suspended or fired at least 5 times. Every single time, the Union attorneys spank UPS and he gets his job back, with pay and extras. Mainly, because he knows the rules.

So he tells me the drivers are about at the end of their rope. UPS forces overtime, but after a lot of it, they are limited to 3 days of 9 and 1/2 hour days, per contract. Then they can ask you to drive, and there is more pay, but not supposed to force it if you say no.

They have been forcing them to work anyway, directly against the contract, since Covid started. And the packages are supposed to be limited to 70 pounds and certain dimension limits. Otherwise, the shipments are supposed to be a different department that handles the commercial large stuff, like pallets of boxes, etc.

Customers are throwing the business to the regular UPS depts, and UPS is accepting it.

With the Jay Inslee experience, people in the last few weeks are ordering desks and all kinds of stuff normally that a school would buy. It's exploded.

And the package counts are crazy. Same time, double the deliveries. Two years ago, an average package count would be 150 to 200 a day. Yesterday, my buddy had over 400 packages. And had worked over 60 hours a week for the last 4 or 5 months.

And because he told them to pound sand when they told him he was working this Saturday, even though that 3 day, 9.5 hour rule was clearly in effect.

After a half hour of talk, as he was delivering, he said he had to go because his phone was blowing up with texts and voicemails. The messages?

Seems that 8 drivers out of his depot had quit that morning, just walked out, because of the continued forced overtime and doubled deliveries.

Oh, and their truly asshole boss, (I met him once and that is exactly what he is) who has fired and suspended my friend, got back from a long vacation, and refuses to wear a mask inside.

Boss got formally reprimanded yesterday for not wearing the mask inside, like every other employee.

If you need a job that is hard but pays well, with outstanding benefits (Teamsters), UPS is hiring in Puget Sound now, with all the hours you can ever want.

My problem is that i would bounce from one to the other. I do the same with other interests and i guess that makes me well rounded. But modern society is not all the supportive of the well rounded individual. Comparative advantage is what is mostly rewarded.
Anyway, I probably know a few hundred words in more than a couple languages. I took this stuff in college but I doubt I have met many who can truly speak another language well unless they have a good reason. There is usually a specific reason such as living abroad a long time or living around foreign language speakers here as far as I have seen. It is one think to study some verbs and read some literature, but another to speak a foreign language with ease.

it works both ways though. We had many native Spanish speakers who took Spanish in school and were not much better than the others. There are many illiterate people but pretty much everyone can speak their native tongue.

This stuff is so fascinating, how different brains do different things well.

Then they grow up and can fix any car (pre-computer age), but are functionally illiterate.

It was hard for me to see Your plan for me
And I tried to believe struggling won't last always

See night after night, night after night, night after night
I prayed Lord, "Don't take Your joy from me"
And then late one night, then late one night
I read in Your love letter that it's gonna get better

Don't You know that I've been looking for You?
I realize nothing else will satisfy me
I'm so glad I found You
Now that I'm changed no one can keep me away from You

You been so good to us
You brought us from a mighty long way
That's why we love You

When my enemies tried to come for me
And they thought that my world was coming to an end
All the while You knew that I would make it through
I feel closer to You now than when I first began

Jesus You are, Jesus You are, Jesus You are
You are my sunlight after the rain
Wherever You are, wherever You are
I just wanna be near You I'm so glad I can hear You

So I want y'all to remember
No matter what happens tomorrow
God's got it all under control
All things brought together

Here here. 7:20 here, and the sun is a big badass orange ball teabagging the mountains to the west.

Just finished dinner, and will head outside in a bit and watch the sun bounce off the eastern mountains.

Three months from now this will be the middle of the night.

531 The C19 death count thing is misunderstood and it is not 6% of all mortality. It's a bit complicated. Actually cause of death is itself a complicated subject, was before, will remain so, unrelated to C19. In terms of medical data.

I know Twitter is a sewer and for corpulent NT addicts and - well, you know the script - but it's also where one finds info, analysis, and links for adults with minds, unlike the garbage cartoons for retards one gets from the "press".

@kylamb8 had a decent but still not complete/perfectly clear explanation of the death count issue on his twatters a few days ago.

Read that, or just settle for basics:

* CDC does not say, data does not say, that only 6% of total fatalities were C19 - those are *only* C19 on the certificate

* death count is almost surely inflated, owing to several factors: sloppiness of reporting, difficulty of assigning cause and aggressive approach to not miss any, perverse financial incentives, and inclusion of what are in reality "lockdown deaths"

Actual number is far, far above the 6% number everyone seized on, and substantially *below* the current grand total.

533 The media is totally the Democrat Propaganda
ministry, even the CDC admitting most Covid-19 deaths only was under
10,000 I never heard anywhere only read it on line. Even the other day
was posting somewhat NPR was saying about the Covid-19 and it was doom
and gloom . Many Deaths were sure to rise I have heard a few places on
radio and tv.

you have a way with words lol. But I get what you are saying. Comparative advantage has made many well off but unable to fend for themselves. I grew up in a mostly middle class area and what I have seen over the years is the guy that can actually fix things has become more and more valuable. I recall when my old neighborhood was all military or white collar. Today, you have many who fix things with their hands. The others have no clue and will pay a pretty penny to someone who can take care of their problems.

If I could advise anyone, it would be A) Join the military and not the infantry. And B) listen to Mike Rowe. Then if you really want to go to college, go with a purpose and goal at hand. College can be great, but go in with a specific goal and use it to your advantage. If you don't have a good reason to go, then don't.

He's Trump's biggest mistake (second only to Sessions).

Sessions was Trump's mistake.

many military leaders did this during campaigns I recall R.E. Lee and Grant getting little sleep over long periods. I doubt this was confined to the Civil War. Sure it is not healthy, but if someone has a serious task at hand, they can do amazing things. If you are just living a normal life, I doubt it is good for you. Even in the guys in the most extreme situations knew in the back of their minds that this would end at some point.

567 I began teaching myself German years ago after I started doing mileage runs to Germany (and going to WGT/Treffen, the world's largest GOTH festival). Unlike my previous foray into Japanese, I did bother to learn the German written language too, heh. (Actually, Japanese not being tonal, can be written easily in American script. That's right, I said American. Latin's dead. However, Japanese people don't write Japanese in American; they use a combination of kanji and hirigana. (Hirigana represent the syllables of the language, and there are only about 34, so not hard to learn at all. They are also not pictograms, but more like letters. Think of American letters as atoms. Japanese hirigana would be the equivalent of molecules.)

Anyhoo, I found the keys to learning German were: One, read kids' elementary school age comic books. You pretty much get the same language, although it's informal (du vs Sie) and it's dumbed down, but after awhile you really start to pick it up. The other thing is to listen to people talking (youtube, recordings, whatever) at a moderate rate. Don't try to understand any of it. Just listen to the flow of the sentences. After awhile, you'll start putting half the verb at the end of the sentence (where it sometimes belongs) automatically because it just sounds right.

Learning a foreign language as an adult is hard if you try to learn a foreign language as an adult. Try to learn it as a kid.

594 Most of the people that want to abolish Daylight Savings don't want to abolish it.

They want to make it permanent year round.


And for reasons that people are profoundly stupid, the entire planet won't accept my brilliant proposal:

Eliminate Time Zones. We all live under UTC.

By accepting Daylight Savings, we already agree that we don't care to have noon be the zenith of the sun - and hour later is fine.

Instead of chopping up states where literally across the street is an hour earlier, or regions where some arbitrary county line or river twist determines the time, we all agree that UK gets to own the sun at zenith at noon.

Most people don't even know what the 'M' in AM and PM mean, so they won't miss it.

Lets say I have a conference meeting with someone in CapeTown South Africa, I have a consultant in Seattle and one in Israel. We rely on the smarts in our calendar to sort out the times so that we don't miss the meeting by several hours. Put the UTC Right There in the invite, so if you accidentally step over the time zone and forget to update your computer, you are still good to go. The US changes its Standard/Daylight times differently than UK. Afghanistan moves the clock an additional thirty minutes. Stop the madness. Stick to a UTC. If you live in the Eastern Time Zone, instead of waking up at 0600, wake up at 1100 YEAR ROUND. If you don't like that, then wake up at the crack of noon - but then don't bitch about less sunlight after dinner.

If you want to have sunlight after dinner, then get your ass up out of bed earlier and eat earlier - don't sit around with a hungry stomach waiting for six PM to roll around before firing up the kitchen. Its a tradition that doesn't make sense anymore because we work with people literally around the world.

With sportsball no longer a factor, and with on-demand streaming, who cares when a program comes on?

I'm not asking for something so hideous and evil as converting to the metric system - just that we look at time differently.

Anyhoo, I found the keys to learning German
were: One, read kids' elementary school age comic books. You pretty much
get the same language, although it's informal (du vs Sie) and it's
dumbed down, but after awhile you really start to pick it up. The other
thing is to listen to people talking (youtube, recordings, whatever) at a
moderate rate. Don't try to understand any of it. Just listen to the
flow of the sentences. After awhile, you'll start putting half the verb
at the end of the sentence (where it sometimes belongs) automatically
because it just sounds right.

Learning a foreign language as an adult is hard if you try to learn a foreign language as an adult. Try to learn it as a kid.


Posted by: SFGoth at September 04, 2020 08:30 PM (KAi1n)

we had someone bring this up in our college Spanish class. It did not go over well with the teachers but I always remembered it and agree with it. They do a poor job of teaching foreign languages in school imo. The standard in college is four semesters. You learn two semesters or grammar and then two of literature appreciation, which basically destroys the grammar lessons you just learned.

i agree about comic books. But in my mind, the only true way to learn for most is to go abroad and get in a situation where you have to learn the language. When you need to hit the head in a foreign country, you will figure out pretty quickly how to ask about that.

Handful of Arabs who needed to learn German to work (imagine that). The Arabs were a mixed bunch - one guy really good, one ok, the others were almost as unintelligible as the Scot. LOL After hours, though, everybody socialized in English since it was everyone's best second language. At our final night dinner, about 30 of us, this one French guy was talking about naekd women. It finally occurred to me that he didn't know how to pronounce naked. The oddest conversation I ever had was in Germany, with a Serb, who had tourette's.

Walter had missed a *lot* of votes in the Senate. This was, I think, one of the first times that attendance record was used against an incumbent, successfully.

Where's Walter? A bloodhound, sniffing through the woods, looking for Walter. Devastating.

I had senators explain to me how that ad/election result revolutionized things, and missing votes was suddenly a big no-no.

And sometimes the actions they'd take to not miss a vote, but also get away to something else, were hilarious. A Danforth/Helms thing was the best I saw up close.

I understand, you sound like me on the ONT a few nights ago.

But I believe that The Senile One will mentally freeze during the debates, making his condition obvious to even the most ardent supporters.

It will get so obvious, like a record that skips, skips, skips, and Trump will stop debating and ask if there is a doctor in the house.

And I believe that will override the massive, unprecedented, historic voter fraud that is about to happen.

that is another issue with learning a language and deciding which language to pick. Will the language be valuable and will you time have been well spent? I can see why many go with Spanish though I think that has been over done. For the most part Spanish speakers will appreciate your efforts and speak with you. Some say the French are disdainful of foreigners that try to speak their language, but that has not been my experience.

If you study Swedish, be prepared for the fact that the Swedes likely speak English better then you will ever be able to speak their language. I have heard Mandarin Chinese can be a tough nut to crack but I can't really speak on that subject. Italians love someone who can speak their language but the issue with that is it is pretty much only spoken in one place.

I can throw a few words of Ethiopian Armaric and get a new friend just like that. There are many things to consider when you decide on a language. My only other piece of advice is to decide and then go for it. Don't let anyone put you off or try to influence you. The tired line that everyone has to study Spanish doesn't hold up. i love Spanish for many reasons, but it is bs that Americans can only choose that language because a neighboring country speaks that language. Well, guess what, Quebec is French speaking and is on our border too. More than once they almost became their own country.

If you just like to learn languages for fun and want to make someones day or have a cultural exchange. I would say go with something exotic. Even a few phrases can make someone glow with pride and make their day as well as yours.

to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark,
lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy.'You
ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: It is victory, victory
at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and
hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival....
'But
I take up my task with buoyancy and hope. I feel sure that our cause
will not be suffered to fail among men. At this time, I feel entitled to
claim the aid of all, and I say, 'Come then, let us go forward together
with our united strength.'
...
'It would be foolish . . . to disguise the gravity of the hour. It would
be still more foolish to lose heart and courage or to suppose that
well-trained, well-equipped armies numbering three or four millions of
men can be overcome in the space of a few weeks, or even months...
'We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on
the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing
strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may
be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing
grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight
in the hills; we shall never surrender...'



Fight chavez and know that we fight with you.

666 If I could advise anyone, it would be A) Join the
military and not the infantry. And B) listen to Mike Rowe. Then if you
really want to go to college, go with a purpose and goal at hand.
College can be great, but go in with a specific goal and use it to your
advantage. If you don't have a good reason to go, then don't.

I did it backwards then, I guess. Went to college, got a fairly useless degree. Then went into the military.



Infantry.



Probably the single greatest practical skill I learned in the military was threat assessment/situational awareness.



If the end times come, then I guess my ability to kill commies will
come into play, but so far I haven't had to kill any commies.

I was infantry too and there was never a second place. You have to be who you are. But I know of many who got a world class education in the military and instead of paying for it, they got paid. I knew a guy who they taught to make dental implants. He became rich after serving as an enlisted man. I meat so many young people today who would never even consider the military. We went wrong some where down the line.

667 I'm bummed! These lies are getting to me! I'm worried Trump will lose because of them.

I hope he totally blows off the first several debate questions to blast Joe for repeating them and to challenge every person in the nation to go look it up.

668 Trump tells OMB to end for any and all spending on programs teaching critical race theory.

"Agencies are instructed to identify any contracts or agency spending that funds programs teaching federal employees about critical race theory and/or white privilege.

Including any effort to teach or suggest that either "the United States is an inherently racist or evil country" or that "any race or ethnicity is inherently racist or evil."

Good. That should shut down those cock-gobblers peddling "critical race theory" at Sandia Labs.

669 Probably the single greatest practical skill I learned in the military was threat assessment/situational awareness.

a great life skill. I hope I did not come off wrong as I was trying to give a hot take based on my life experiences. I love the infantry. My comment was about the world today that mostly only values very specific skills as in how much money you can make me today. Most of the people who make a ton today couldn't set up a hasty firing position or win at Trivial Pursuit.

I wold rather have kids learn a marketable skill in the service than go to one of these lefty brain washing centers. Of course 11B is best.

677 My buddy Emanuel Rivera moved back to Bolivia a few years ago. He mines bat guano for use in cosmetics. I havent talked to him in awhile, should give him a call and see how he feels about bat borne diseases. Last time we talked he was telling me how explosions were a real danger. It turns out bat guano dust is highly explosive.
