79 Some of us probably already know this, that harbors where ships routinely grounded at low tide is the origin of the nautical term "ship-shape and Bristol fashion", meaning everything in it's place and secured.

Bristol harbor was shallow and ships would routinely settle in the mud at low tide and lean to one side. Unless everything from cargo to gun carriages to the ship's galley was fully secured it would fall to the low side and perhaps lay the ship all the way over. So the term Bristol-fashion meant all gear and cargo was tied in place securely.

This ends today's lesson in obscure nautical history which probably nobody cares about anyway. But it's better than election or covid crap news.

198 79 Some of us probably already know this, that harbors where ships routinely grounded at low tide is the origin of the nautical term "ship-shape and Bristol fashion", meaning everything in it's place and secured.

Bristol harbor was shallow and ships would routinely settle in the mud at low tide and lean to one side. Unless everything from cargo to gun carriages to the ship's galley was fully secured it would fall to the low side and perhaps lay the ship all the way over.

Over a gateway pundit

There are a stunning 3,276 precincts where the Presidential Votes Cast compared to the Estimated Voters based on Reported Statistics ranges from 84% to 350 reveals 431,954 excess ballots.. This pattern strongly suggests that the *additive algorithm* was activated.

Posted by: rhennigantx at November 19, 2020 09:28 AM

Wouldn't it be hilarious if Trump and his team knew about the rigged voting machines and set some kind of trap for the Left.

Such as inserting some kind of program in the machines that would execute as soon as the Left enabled their algorithm. The Left would think that by enabling the algorithm, it would give them just enough votes to closely win certain states.

Instead, once they enabled the algorithm, the program would execute and blow up the vote totals to ridiculously massive numbers that make no logical sense.

Kinda like what happened in "Office Space". When Michael Bolton misplaced a decimal point and instead of stealing a small amount of money no one would miss, it was hundreds of thousands of dollars that was obvious to everyone paying attention.

(Yeah, I know, not likely, but... would make for an interesting plot for a book/movie?)

If there was any evidence to be had that could be acted upon, they would be.

Even if there was hard evidence besides "statistical anomalies and improbabilities", the courts would instantly dismiss it. The public at large would not be able to handle or process the proof of widespread systematic voting fraud committed by the Democrats.

It's also profane to speak of The Lord with such liberal use of profanity. But maybe that's the author's point is to throw out traditional Christianity in favor of cursing about Christianity.

Quote Tweet Mollie @MZHemingwayDemocrats Are Reaping Fruit Of Years Of Anti-Trump Conspiracy Theories -- thefederalist

imo Mollie is wrong, Dems are NOT reaping the fruit of their Trump-Russia conspiracy theories. Those lies were The Coup. The election fraud is a continuation of The Coup.


Mollie is dead wrong to claim Trump and the MAGA response to the massive cheat is ANYTHING like the Clinton initiated SCAM (not a conspiracy theory, an orchestrated False Narrative PsyOp, run in coordination with our FBI)

It is an insult to say uncovering their coup and election rigging is anything like the lefts subversive efforts against a duly elected president. And it completely ignores the hard evidence of Biden and company crimes, as opposed to the crimes AGAINST Trump by DNC/MSM/FBI.

I have no problem with Murray, but I think he was wrong for the role.

He's too removed and cynical, and his supposedly earnest announcement at the end (which kind of goes on forever) in front of a crowd feels like a comedian stretching for a laugh at an open mic night rather than the result of a character change.

Repost of repost.


Safeway is giving a free turkey to anyone spending over $150. Lady asked me if I wanted a free turkey, informing me of the unbeknownst to me deal. I said sure, why not. We already got one. The FiL will get a free one, because he cannot pass up such, and we have no room in the freezers.


So I gave it to the elderly gentleman behind me, shopping alone, with a few items. He was very grateful, and the clerk was touched. It felt good to remember that there are other people in the world, and no matter how pissed I am at current events, I am blessed beyond my worth and can share my blessings.

Posted by: Asshoes at November 19, 2020 10:18 AM (22mNy)
+++++++++++++
There is only one way to save the economy, and it comes in two phases:
1. Reopen everything right now and life *all* COVID restrictions. No phase-in, no planning, nothing. Just lift the restrictions and let 'er rip. This will be disruptive. So be it. We need real production and we need it *now.*
2. After one year (for things to stabilize), but non-interest Federal expenditures by at least 50% over the subsequent five years. No sacred calves, no exceptions, no exemptions. Half, including the armed forces. We spent a ton rebuilding, let's ride on that while we recover the budget. If there's a war, that will change things.

Scribbling over someone else's artwork is childish and, IMO, detracts from the actual point the author is making. As does the off-point, virtue signaling reference to police violence. All that said, if her interpretation of the Greek is correct (and I have no idea one way or the other) she may have an interesting point. I've often thought that Martha was being treated rather unfairly by the way the passage is traditionally taken.

383 To me, what makes Murray's performance in Caddyshack so exceptional is that he wrote his own script. The producers realized they had a bomb on their hand as written, so they called in Dangerfield and Murray and told them just to adlib whatever they thought would work. Obviously, both of them hit it out of the park.

One other notable actor who was allowed to do that was Tony Shaloub, in Galaxy Quest. The character's name is Tech Sargent Chen because it was intended to be an Asian, Sulu type character. Then they found out Shaloub was available, and hired him, but none of the lines written for the character worked anymore. So they asked Shaloub if he could come up with a character on his own, and he said "oh yeah, I got this."

I have no idea how the machinery is working, but Barr successfully delayed past the election, Weiner laptop and Hunter laptop are maybe small potatoes compared to Ukraine and other crimes. Yet so far ... Here comes Fingers Joe to finish cleaning up the mess made by voters electing Trump.


Barr is out of the Bush camp ... which is probably to have a controlled president with BigBank and MIC making the real decisions ... contractors run everything, Joey has his lobbyist team ready to roll. Barr can go write a his seven figure book deal?

Posted by: Wolfus Aurelius at November 19, 2020 10:36 AM (wQDH5)

Most Classic Star Trek fans agree, as TJM wrote, that it was the best ST movie ever made. It was about us. And as far as the obsessiveness of the young fans when it was off the air, and all we could get were re-runs in the late 70's - my roommate and I would have a contest with each other, whenever an episode came on. At the beginning of the opening scene, before the credits, the game was to be the first to name the title and the episode number, based only on the musical cues and the opening shot. One of us could always nail it within 10 seconds.

441 Alan Greenspan (yeah he's still alive) said Biden needs to "save the economy" and he's never seen anything so bad in his life.

Yeah, not surprised Greenspan would think that a $30K DIJA and record low unemployment pre-lockdown was the worst thing ever. Recall that he's the guy who gave us the phrase "irrational exuberance" to describe strong growth. I remember a political cartoon from his time at the Fed. Greenie was drawn as a stereotypical state trooper "smokey" writing a ticket to a car labeled "Economy" or something. The driver asks "Was I speeding?" Greenie replies "No, but you looked like you were about to."

Oh, there's a whole lot extremely suspicious public, too. I visited my cousin yesterday to give her some things for an upcoming trip. She is sort of a default liberal (at least historically). She's had it up to here with the 'Rona and the bullshit. She isn't politically active, watches the news sometimes - a sort of normal, reasonably smart lo-fo and she called out a lot of stuff about the BS and destruction that is all insane and unjustifiable.

Sort of. But the BttF scene has a comic or satirical undertone, to me, whereas the Wonderful Life sequence does not. See the moment when George comes down off the stoop and stares wildly around him at Pottersville. The camera comes in close on him, and we see a man who is damn close to the end of his rope.

==========

Mel Brooks didn't understand the appeal of Star Wars, so I think Spaceballs misses the mark a lot. It feels like a lot of rote replication rather than pointed satire. The merchandizing stuff is the only stuff he gets exactly right, and it's perfect.

Star Wars is about archetypes doing archetypal things. It's so steeped in Joseph Campbell's theories on storytelling that Campbell should have gotten a co-writing credit.

I think a better satire would have attacked Star Wars there, about its predictability.

Of course he didn't, but he brought it together in The Hero with a Thousand Faces that popularized the idea for a larger audience than academics.

Lucas has said that Campbell's book was the heaviest source of inspiration for how he built Star Wars the story. There are other influences, of course (The Hidden Fortress and Flash Gordon for a couple), but Campbell was probably the biggest.

"White Christmas" was written for Holiday Inn and won an academy award for best original song in 1942, so I think that qualifies it as a Christmas movie. It also has the infamous Blackface scene "Abraham", and I wonder if it will be allowed to be shown anymore because of it. I expect they'll just delete that number for all future showings.

544 So Mr. Lily and I were just disenvited to Christmas with the three of our children and the grandchildren who live in Reno. Because of COVID. The numbers are too high and "they can't take that chance."

We were going to meet our new granddaughter who is set to be born December 17th.

So disappointed. However, Grandpa and I talked it over and our original thought was to use the money we saved on not flying out there to buy extra presents to send. Then we thought, to heck with it and we will remodel our basement bathroom and put in a spa tub instead.

I miss the grandkids for sure. Their parents, less and less. We are seriously considering not leaving a penny to our children after we are gone and giving it all to the grandkids.

So, in a positive note, we can continue to enjoy our best lives while they cower at home. And the best of all is that when we talk to the older grandkids they are seriously offended by how stupid shutting everything down is.

There are TWO of them, often confused.

Holiday Inn, 1942, with Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire, featuring the song "White Christmas"

White Christmas, 1954, with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye, loosely based on the previous one, and ALSO featuring the song "White Christmas".

or at least it seems we are fighting ... War is Hell ... surrender is worse. Time for uplifting battle cries I guess ... face paint and drums? Instead we get layers of lawyers and billionaire operatives facing off.

In Bryson City, Tennesse they do a polar express train ride through the smoky mountains. It's short, maybe a couple hours trip up and back. They serve hot-chocolate, read from the book and Santa hops on to hand out gifts. Everyone wears pjs and it's fun for the kids.

I didn't even check but I'm sure it's canceled this year as is everything nice in the world.

That scene was edited out, at least on local TV in L. A., in the late 60s - early 70s. I first saw the scene on a VHS release of the movie. TBF, the song isn't one of Berlin's best, and Crosby looks distinctly embarrassed.

However, Grandpa and I talked it over and our original thought was to use the money we saved on not flying out there to buy extra presents to send. Then we thought, to heck with it and we will remodel our basement bathroom and put in a spa tub instead.

I miss the grandkids for sure. Their parents, less and less. We are seriously considering not leaving a penny to our children after we are gone and giving it all to the grandkids.

So, in a positive note, we can continue to enjoy our best lives while they cower at home. And the best of all is that when we talk to the older grandkids they are seriously offended by how stupid shutting everything down is.

I love that movie, that's one of my favorite Leslie Neilson spoofs! It's a lot funnier if you watch some of the classic Dracula films first, and you can get how much of a scene by scene spoof it is. Not just of the Bela Lugosi version, but of the Hammer Dracula film as well.

The scene where they stake Lucy in her coffin is one of the best of all. Recall that is was incredibly bloody, with gallons of blood shooting out while Mel Brooks character hides off stage. The joke is that no one told Steven Webber (he was the star of Wings) what was about to happen, so his reaction to being soaked in gallons of nasty red goo is quite real. When he's asked to stake her a 3rd time, he just says "she's dead." and drops it all. At that point, of course, there isn't one square inch of him that isn't soaked.

The story about how Rickman got that first movie role - Die Hard - is pretty cool.

Joel Silver saw Rickman in London, when he was the Valmont character in Dangerous Liaisons. That role made him a star in the UK, but he didn't make the cut when Silver made the movie - Malkovich got that role.

Die Hard was the consolation prize.

Posted by: AnnaS at November 19, 2020 10:53 AM (l4l/z)

Someone nailed it upthread or in prior thread. Hoft is about 80% accurate - better than lefty media - but oversells it way too hard. Let the facts tell the story. And the facts say we ain't out of the water, but our chances are improving daily.

Just a typo. I admit I've never seen any part of the film except the moment when Christina Applegate gasps about his cologne, "It smells like a diaper filled with Indian food!"

LOL!

I try to pride myself on being open minded and I've tried to watch movies that people say are great and funny, but anything with Ferrell in it I've found myself turning off in the first 20 minutes.

Did it with RB and TN.....I couldn't understand why anyone told me those were funny and I needed to watch them.

Posted by: Balrog of Morgoth at November 19, 2020 10:50 AM (CLteG)

Boobies, with whipped cream and honey almost sounds like a recipe I'd see on Pioneer Woman. With artful pictures of the prep and finished product. I'd try it and screw it up of course. The girl would wiggle too much and the whipped cream would lose its peaks. Oh well, I'm sure it would taste just as good.

644 Mel Brooks didn't understand the appeal of Star Wars, so I think Spaceballs misses the mark a lot. It feels like a lot of rote replication rather than pointed satire. The merchandizing stuff is the only stuff he gets exactly right, and it's perfect.

Star Wars is about archetypes doing archetypal things. It's so steeped in Joseph Campbell's theories on storytelling that Campbell should have gotten a co-writing credit.

I think a better satire would have attacked Star Wars there, about its predictability.
Posted by: TheJamesMadison, going back...to the Future! at November 19, 2020 10:47 AM (LvTSG)


Eh, no. I think Brooks understood Star Wars just fine. He made a cheap ripoff of an expensive ripoff or classic sci-fi movies with cardboard characters, doing predictable things.

That he had actors basically overacting was... brilliant. Let John Candy riff. Let Bill Pullman be a douche. Let Rick Moranis be Rick Moranis, which is always a genius move.

648 And he hit the scene older than average and with a bang. He did a couple of TV appearances but his first real movie was Die Hard. His first big movie role was iconic, and then he did great work from there on out.

First saw Alan in, I think, Smiley's People.

He played a desk clerk at The Savoy Hotel.

649 Oh, almost forgot.

Love Love LOVE The Polar Express. One of the best Christmas movies ever.

Can't forget that one.
Posted by: Grapefruit LaCroix at November 19, 2020 10:56 AM (BmPUd)

This is cancelled for this year due to Whitmer, but the actual train that was the model for the Polar Express is located in Owosso Michigan. it's called the Pere Marquette and is one of only a few working steam locomotives left in the US. The train normally runs fall color excursions and then in November/December it runs daily and nightly trips to the small village of Ashley that turns into the movie version of Vernon. Residence dress in costume , there are reindeer, Christmas trees and shopping, characters from the movie, etc. The kids get hot chocolate on the train and a bell. It normally sells out weeks in advance. This year, the railroad society that owns the train and other steam and railroad cars, has been shut down the entire year and is in desperate need of funds, as the trips are what fund all the restorations, etc.

654 Careening

"Careening (also known as "heaving down") is the practice of grounding a sailing vessel at high tide, in order to expose oneside of its hull for maintenance and repairs
below the water line when the tide goes out."
