YAMASAKI ARCHITECTURE

Minoru Yamasaki (1912 – 1986), a Seattle-native, had a major impact on 20th Century post-war American architecture.

His famous airport terminal in St. Louis pre-dated his love affair with thin white columns.

He ultimately settled in Michigan, which has an abundance of his buildings. This one is at Wayne State University.

Yamasaki’s Northwestern National Life Building in Minneapolis is the epitome of the Yamasaki style.

Of course, his most famous work was the World Trade Center. It’s no longer there.


Yamasaki - World Trade Center.JPG

Buildings with thin white ornamental columns were everywhere when I was growing up in Texas – lots of Yamasaki knockoffs. Maybe that’s because Texas was booming in the ‘60s and ‘70s, so all the thin white columned buildings were supposed to make the New Texas seem more modern.

SOMEONE WHO WAS GENUINELY STUNNING AND BRAVE

In May 1862, 23-year old Robert Smalls and his family were enslaved in South Carolina. Risking death, he commandeered a ship, ”The Planter,” in Charleston Harbor, gathered up his family, and sailed through Confederate defenses to deliver the ship to the Union (United States) Navy, also delivering freedom to his family and fellow crewmembers. Charleston was firmly in Confederate control, but the Union Navy was not far offshore, trying to enforce a blockade against Confederate trade.

When Smalls judged the time was right, he ordered the steamer to leave. The fog was now thinning, and the crew raised two flags. One was the first official Confederate flag, known as the Stars and Bars, and the other was South Carolina’s blue-and-white state flag, which displayed a Palmetto tree and a crescent. Both would help the ship maintain its cover as a Confederate vessel.

The Confederate guard stationed about 50 yards away from the Planter saw the ship was leaving, and even moved closer to watch her, but he assumed the vessel’s officers were in command and never raised an alarm. A police detective also saw that the ship was leaving and made the same assumption. Luck seemed to be on Smalls’ side, at least for now.

The Planter’s next task was to stop at the North Atlantic Wharf to pick up Smalls’ family and the others. The crew soon reached the North Atlantic Wharf and had no trouble approaching the pier.

All had gone as planned, and they were now together. With 16 people on board, and the women and children belowdecks, the Planter resumed her way south toward Confederate Fort Johnson, leaving Charleston and their lives as slaves behind them.

At about 4:15 a.m., the Planter finally neared the formidable Fort Sumter, whose massive walls towered ominously about 50 feet above the water. Those on board the Planter were terrified. The only one not outwardly affected by fear was Smalls. “When we drew near the fort every man but Robert Smalls felt his knees giving way and the women began crying and praying again,”

With steam and smoke belching from her stacks and her paddle wheels churning through the dark water, the steamer headed straight toward the closest of the Union ships, while her crew rushed to take down the Confederate and South Carolina flags and hoist a white bedsheet to signal surrender.

Robert Smalls went on to become a Captain in the US Navy during the Civil War, and after that a US Congressman, and a Customs Collector. He died in 1915.

OH, THE HUMANITY

While talking about Disaster Movies in last night’s Overnight Thread, I included a poster for the movie The Hindenburg. Below is a link to the actual Hindenburg disaster. The movie made famous the line “Oh, the humanity” which was uttered by WLS radio reporter Herbert Morrison while covering the 1937 catastrophe. The famous line is at the 38-second mark.

Since it’s Thanksgiving week, you are likely to stumble upon a link to the hilarious WKRP in Cincinnati Turkey Drop, in which radio reporter Les Nessman utters the same famous line, “Oh, the humanity.” That line may now be more closely associated with WKRP than with the Hindenburg.

*****

THE HINDENBURG’S LAST SURVIVOR

Of the 97 people aboard the Hindenburg, 62 somehow survived. Werner Doehner, the last survivor of the Hindenburg, died just two years ago, in November 2019. He lost his father and a sister in the disaster, but his mother and brother both survived by jumping from the burning dirigible.

Doehner was 8 years old when he departed Frankfurt, Germany, on May 3, 1937, aboard the colossal zeppelin airship with his parents, Hermann, 50, and Matilde, 41; an elder sister, Irene, 14, and elder brother, Walter, 10. The family lived in North America, where Hermann Doehner was a pharmaceutical executive for a German company in Mexico City. Three days later, the Hindenburg’s 7 million cubic feet of hydrogen erupted into a firestorm as the dirigible attempted to dock at Naval Air Station Lakehurst in New Jersey on the evening of May 6, 1937.

Walter and Werner leapt from the observation windows onto the ground below, with the help of their mother and a ground crew member. Matilde followed. But when it was a reluctant Irene’s turn to jump, either in panic or shock, she attempted to flee into the interior of the burning ship to ostensibly go look for her father, who was likely in the family’s private compartment when the disaster struck.
Mother and sons survived, but Irene died that night from devastating burns while being treated at an area hospital. Hermann Doehner’s body was later recovered in the wreckage.

MUSICAL SAW


Musical Saw.JPG


If playing a Musical Saw will make me popular, then sign me up! The extra money sounds good too. I only wish I had known about musical saws during my awkward teenage years when I was trying to stand out from the other guys in my efforts to attract girls.

Here’s a lovely version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow played on the musical saw.

What weird instrument have any of you played? Mouth harp? Washboard? Alphorn? Steel Drums?

I’ll be very disappointed if Miklos can’t play the Cimbalom.

CLASSICAL MUSIC YOU KNOW BUT CAN’T NAME

Franz Van Suppe’s “Light Cavalry” must have been played in cartoons or westerns or something in our childhoods, because we’ve all known this tune our whole lives. Skip ahead to 2:15 and it will become very familiar, with a “galloping horses” feel about it.

PUTT-PUTT

This is a glorious 53-second video of America when it was at peak-miniature-golf. And not just any miniature golf, the was the 1971 Texas State Putt-Putt Championship! $2,200 was at stake.

I’m deeply impressed with the hole in one at the 23-second mark. That triangle-looking thing always sent me to the wrong side of the green, from which it took about 10 shots to work my way back to the correct side of the green.

Let’s hear your Putt-Putt memories! Any first tween-age dates there? Did any of y’all ever play in a Putt-Putt tournament?

THROCKMORTON’S FIRST LAW OF LIVE MUSIC: IF THERE’S AN UPRIGHT BASS IN THE BAND, IT’S PROBABLY GOING TO BE GOOD

I first saw Kelly Willis perform in the beer garden of a Texas barbecue restaurant about 30 years ago. My buddies and I had heard about this young singer with amazing pipes, doing a retro-country sound. We couldn’t believe the big voice coming out of that delicate looking singer. She’s had a great career. Here she is performing with husband Bruce Robison on the classic old country song “9,999,999 Tears To Go”

Hmmm, If they had just swapped Europeans for Spanish/Portuguese they would have been all right. That the Vikings were so white they glowed in the dark does not appear to dawn on them either.

I guess I hadn't paid full attention to the specifics, but I grew up dropping off and picking up my father at that St. Louis terminal throughout the '90s. Northwestern National Life Building in Minneapolis is right there along major bus and bike routes. He also did the Olin Hall of Science at Carleton College in southern Minnesota. All of the campus tour guides were proud to point out the building designed by the WTC guy.

And, Buck: if you're into architecture, check out William Periera sometime. I personally find him interesting. He appeared on the cover of TIME in 1963, back when that meant something.

Pereira was popular about the same time as Yamasaki, and did various styles, including Googie (hmm) and Brutalist (yuck).

119 I played the piano. And if any of you all think that's not an odd instrument to play then you don't know how to play one.

It is not as easy as it looks. It's one instrument that can never be tuned. It is always slightlly off. Each not is made of 3 strings struck by a hammer and altho one would think that's pretty straight forward, one key down == one note played, that's not the case.

Believe it or not but a piano key can be stroked in such a way to give one slightly different notes or harmonics that make a difference besides changing the loudness.

Thus to play a piano one almost has to play it like a violin which is to say by ear. It's a very difficult instrument to improvise on also unless one has spent years practicing and playing. I gave it 5 years and barely could play a tune. Anytime you hear or watch a piano solo remember this and don't believe it's so easy anyone can do it.

Posted by: 18-1

Real estate has 'sticky' prices just like labor due to loss avoidance preference. People have a natural aversion to taking a loss or accepting less for a day's work. If you couple that with a stagnant market--few people moving in or out, then the few open houses bring higher prices.

There is a stone yard in Houston, just a block or so each way from the N.E. quadrant of the intersection of I-10 and Beltway 8, on the West side of town.

Granite? Yeah, that's maybe ten, fifteen percent of the yard. Architectural Marble? Now you're talkin'. They have some that looks like sweeping galaxies in the night sky. Or wild western desert sunsets. EXOTIC stone, things that are breathtaking in view and in price.

Roughly two or three acres of rack after rack, row after row. Bring heavy gloves, a strong back a camera and a notebook. You're not going to memorize the catalog of everything you see, and you're going to see too much to take in at one viewing. The one thing you won't need to bring is your imagination. The slabs will exceed your wildest, anyway.

273 The problem with "Pro" sports is that it has devolved into pro acting - it's all a theatrical production - not quite pro-wrestling, no one has dissolved into scripting a football game or NBA final - but it's being produced and presented and represented by athletic actors, not sports guys who did this for the love of the game or that was the only way they could earn a living...

Naw, it's become the athletic equivalent of the Kardashians. Its not sports, its "Sports Broadway" - you now need a program to see who will be Labron James' or Dak Prescott's understudy tonight...

276 Totally OT, but I think meth-heads burned down our hay barn today at the farm.

No electricity, no volatile chemicals, no lightning strikes, and no hay bales (it was already sold to my rancher neighbor), yet it went up in about 3 minutes.

It took six fire trucks to put out the 20 acre grass fire as it was trying to run off or our property. We didn't even try to save the 80-year-old hay barn.

Pro tip: Classic pre-reclaimed barn wood goes up fast when it has dried in place for must of a century.

279 Good news at last!

July 2020, the company I worked for had to let me go. The fed contract they worked had shriveled due to excessive coofness, and the whole division ceased to exist. It was a great company that treated me well and kept me as long as they could - I was almost literally the last person out the door - and said that if they ever got another contract similar to what I had worked, they would gladly have me back.

I was unemployed for a while, and then ended up in a job in the same industry - a much lower-end job with much lower-end pay. Then, my previous company called me last week. New contract, and they want me in on the ground floor of it, at a bit more money than I made for them previously.

308 If a structure is insulated well enough and work active stuff is going on inside you don't have to worry about heating it. You actually just have to worry about cooling it always. I worked in an office that was suspended above a factory floor and the office didn't have a heating system just AC for the summer and a vent to exchange air in the winter. One winter the vent broke. It was in the single digits outside and 85-90 in the office. We were sweating like pigs and they allowed us to wear shorts and t-shirts until the system got fixed.

Maybe these trees are unusual -- its a fantasy setting.

Maybe the sap inside the trees carries its own warmth. The walls are self-heating / insulating due to the sap running through the walls.

If something were to cause the sap to stop flowing in the walls, the "house" would be unlivable and abandoned.

I knew someone who did just that. He was a manipulative little shit who had served time for armed robbery, son of someone I knew. A few years after he got out he married a 23 year old girl, got into a development business with friends, and somehow bought a house that was probably worth more than a half million. A year after the wedding everything blew up in his face. He hadn't told the bride or business partners about his felony record. He ended up dying suddenly when he was around 40. I still can't figure out how the hell he got that house.

348 Had an interesting day, attended a formal military funeral at Arlington National Cemetery which was beautifully done. Sun came out and it was a beautiful day except for the wind chill.

The Old Guard performed flawlessly, but one side note: There was a seven man rifle squad and at one point in the service they fired three volleys. I listened very carefully, because I was convinced there was only one rifle firing although they were rather loud volleys. I figured they were saving money and using only one bullet per volley. I simply could not detect any staggering of the volleys; but at the end of the ceremony, a rifle man came over and handed one of the sons a black bag containing 21 fired shell casings as part of the ceremony. So the amazing thing to me was that the rifle squad was so perfectly synchronized in three seven shot volleys I never heard a perceptible delay among the shots. Those guys are amazing!

The wake was rather nice as well.

RIP my friend!

445 110K doesn't seem like enough for a half million dollar house. Not only would the mortgage be super high, but also the insurance and property tax. You wouldn't have any money left for groceries.

I'm gonna put in some guesstimations here. 110K gross is about 4230 every 2 weeks or so (26 pay periods). Take out about a third for taxes,bennies, etc, leaving about 3200. Unless it's a blue state then take out half, leaving about 2115. Mortgage on a 500K house with 20% down at 3.1% for 30 years is about 2100. So, tight, but it's only most of one paycheck.

So they're probably getting some interest only variable rate monstrosity because they're planning on bailing in less than five years anyways.

457 "I'll be very disappointed if Miklos can't play the Cimbalom."

My grandfather played that. He also played the violin and trumpet. He was a talented musician who gave up a good job at the Railroad to play music during the Depression. They almost lost the house and my grandmother almost lost her mind.

Pop-pop was a character. He was gassed at the second Battle of the Marne in the Great War, and was put on a ship to return stateside (presumably to die). On board, they asked for volunteers who knew how to type. While he was doing that he found his orders and changed them to be sent home.

Later he met and married my grandmother, but not before joining a movement to support priests being able to marry and got himself excommunicated from the Church and disinherited by his father. The Church took him back, but his father never did.

I immediately thought of 'Juice harp' but then remembered that an instrument that I had only known for 99% of my life as 'the juice harp' was actually called a 'Jews Harp' then wondered who my subconscious was trying to insult. I am coming down on 'Juice harp' and that my subconscious is not anti-Semitic.

Kamala is just a floozy.

Rocket stove mass heater made from Cob, it draws air from outside and routs the heat and smoke through a riser and heats a thermal mass for re-radiation.

Alternately a Russian stove (Pech) , either the full giant bed ones or the smaller masonry mass heater. (Who among us has not wanted a Winter cabin with a bed built on top of a wood burning fireplace?)

Of course if you are trying to make magic be engineering, I would look at Maxwell's demons sort of thing, or accelerated bacterial decay - my compost can get pretty hot by itself and magic might make it turbcharged. If you wanted you could do a subtle infomercial on biochar and clay for capturing N and nutrients, too . . .

528 >>So they're probably getting some interest only variable rate monstrosity because they're planning on bailing in less than five years anyways.

You guys are overthinking this. Not all blue state home buyers are first time buyers. Some of us move around in the region. I have multiple times.

And some in my town have been here for generations. They bought the land and house when it was peanuts.

I have been here for only a few years and in my case my home is appraised at 56% more than what I paid for it and I came from an area where I sold my home after a similar increase. The pace has accelerated but homes here have increased in value every year for a very long time.

Many people aren't just putting down 20% and taking an enormous mortgage.

Felt better after that. I think it was a combo of taking a tramadol last night, having insomnia, taking my morning meds on an empty stomach with just coffee, and my husband's driving. But I got a couch, paid too much for it and still have to wait 2-4 weeks for delivery. The only other one we liked was a little more expensive and had a 12-16 lead time since it was a custom upholstery dealio.

549 All reality TV lies. I had a friend who was on one of the those H&G reality shows where they have to pick a house they want to buy and then there is drama as work gets done to the house, or whatever.

The show concocted his entire family, lied about the fact that he was buying the house (in fact, he had already bought it), and then goaded them into some fake drama about the contracting work.

House Hunters is almost certainly much the same thing.

My wife and her friends used to hang out with Jaye P's son and his friends in Malibu. The son never said anything about who his mom was, until one day they were over at the house and it was Jaye P! She was a little too young to realize that it was a big deal, and maybe it wasn't, since they used to run into minor celebrities all the time.

590 Before the trial was over, Wood made legal moves to get the $2 million bail. Pierce, the first lawyer, also wants it and his law firm is the entity that posted the bail. But, other ppl, including Wendy, fund-raised to get the full bail, so probably lots of litigation. Kyle did not mention any of this tonight.

629 Good point. I'm a decent rhythm guitarist. Never got into lead guitar / solos until recently. Since WuFlu, I've spent more time on that. I know several riffs now -- mostly intros.

Posted by: Doof at November 22, 2021 11:06 PM (mZUr4)

I think the whole lead/solo thing kinda happens naturally. After you get bored of just doing rhythm, and as you come across songs with more and more melody notes that you start playing its just a short jump to solos from there.

Anywho, wound up throwing up. Felt better after that. I think it was a combo of taking a tramadol last night, having insomnia, taking my morning meds on an empty stomach with just coffee, and my husband's driving. But I got a couch, paid too much for it and still have to wait 2-4 weeks for delivery. The only other one we liked was a little more expensive and had a 12-16 lead time since it was a custom upholstery dealio.

I dug up a postcard that I bought when we were at an archeological excavation in Vuollerim in northern Sweden. It shows a reconstruction of a communal hut (partially underground) from 6000 years ago. An air intake feeds a fire near the end of the hut, with a tunnel that leads the smoke out and upward. Maybe you can use that idea to come up with a plausible description for your hollow trees.

All the crap is happening in the same areas: the looting is in union square and certain other flat areas or at walgreens. The drug trade is in the tenderloin (check out TL popo's twitter feed, it's fun) or certain parts of market st./SOMA (such as 6th St.) and there's random property crime wherever. The no-go zones are the same they've been since i first moved here in 1988. We have serious hills. Check a topo map; it's no joke. The "bridge-and-tunnel" crowd tends to avoid inclines. IMO, outside of "where the luxury goods are", the real mess here is the homeless/vagrant problem which is every-fucking-where.

Might've been junkies not meth-heads. No volatile chems = not meth cooks. Heroin, et al., need to be cooked in a spoon of water in order to dissolve for IV use; meth doesn't, so IV junkies would've had a flame.

680 COVID hasn't been a thing where I live since the first 2 week shutdown.

I think restaurants did stay closed for several weeks, and they did (and still do) enforce the mask thing at the hospital and clinics, but no other places ever enforced it and the only people I see wearing masks are either extremely old, or are obvious transplants from up north.
They didn't even shut the schools down after the first two weeks, and probably wouldn't have done so at all but for the Federal funding.

Homeschooling -- For The Win. I went to public schools, 18 of them to be exact by HS graduation, the result of a military brat life. But I entered the 1st grade able to read, due to diligent parents.

Jokes -- I suck at them, though my snark is greatly improved.
