The Saturday Night Joke

A girl Potato and boy Potato had eyes for each other, and finally they got married and had a little sweet potato which they called 'Yam,' Of course, they wanted the best for Yam, and when it was time they told her about the facts of life.
They warned her about going out and getting half-baked, so she wouldn't get accidentally mashed, and get a bad name for herself like 'Hot Potato,' and end up with a bunch of tater tots.
Yam said not to worry, no spud would get her into the sack and make a rotten potato out of her, but on the other hand she wouldn't stay home and become a couch potato either. She would get plenty of exercise so as not to be skinny like her shoestring cousins.
When she went off to Europe, Mr. And Mrs. Potato told Yam to watch out for the hard-boiled guys from Ireland and the greasy guys from France called the French fries. Yam said she would stay on the straight and narrow and wouldn't associate with those high class Yukon Golds, or the ones from the other side of the tracks who advertise their trade on all the trucks that say, 'Frito Lay.'
Mr. And Mrs. Potato sent Yam to Idaho P.U. (that's Potato University) so that when she graduated she'd really be in the chips. But in spite of all they did for her, one-day Yam came home and announced she was going to marry Tom Brokaw.
Tom Brokaw!
Mr. And Mrs. Potato were very upset. They told Yam she couldn't possibly marry Tom Brokaw because he's just.....
Are you ready for this?
Are you sure?
OK!
Here it is!

10 Signs You Might Have Already Been Abducted by Aliens

Most of us know and understand the general idea of alien abduction and what it might entail. It usually includes being taken from your car on a lonely road or even from your bed and then transported into a hovering flying saucer in a bizarre and intense light, for example.

(THE COLLEGE FIX) -- A senior research fellow at Australia’s University of Sydney believes plants are intelligent and can communicate.

Monica Gagliano’s personal anecdotes about our CO2-breathing fellow terrestrials include her “being rocked like a baby by the spirit of a fern” and getting advice from an oak tree … about a grant application

It's Saturday night. You're here. Let's look at beer in cartoons.

DETERMINING THE ABV OF THE MOST BELOVED CARTOON BEERS
From ‘King of the Hill’ to ‘The Simpsons,’ almost every cartoon has its own proprietary beer its characters are obsessed with. But what type of beer are they, actually, and which is going to do the best job getting me drunk?

“I would kill everyone in this room for a drop of sweet beer.”

You only had one job. Genius Award Winner.

A pizza company was handed the title of having the "worst name ever" recently thanks to an unfortunate blunder with the name of their website - as customers accidentally read their name as something very different.

Welsh Italian Pizza attracted the attention of hungry customers when they pitched up at The BIG ICC Wales Wedding Fair on April 10, which was held at the International Convention Centre in Newport, South Wales.

And while they were poised and ready to serve their tasty dishes to the masses, it wasn't their pizza that had people talking, but was instead the website URL that was printed on the front of their stall - as people saw www.welshitalianpizza.co.uk and thought their business was called 'Wel S**t Alian Pizza'.

I'm always amazed that people think that repealing the second amendment repeals the right to keep and bear arms.

The amendments in the Bill of Rights are *guarantees *, not *grants.* Repealing those amendments does no more than de-legitimize the the government that has the temerity to do so.

From ages past, in Usenet times, there was an story called:

Pooh goes apesh*t

"Piglet had wondered why Pooh had not called for him that morning, to have his tea and biscuits, and so he decided to visit Pooh instead. He admired the evening sun, blood red, and listened to the birds singing. Pooh watched him get nearer and nearer, and plugged in the drill."

A well-born but naive young woman was engaged to marry a man of an particular ethnicity with a rumoured predilection for buggery... Although she was amply warned of the "other hole" thing by all of her friends, she married him anyway...

After a month of marriage, the woman was asked by one her friends if her husband had claimed the "other hole" yet...

She replied that he had not, and went on to describe how she often literally begged her husband to take the "other hole" to no avail... She said her husband feared she might become pregnant were they to do that, and they just simply could not afford a child at this time!

new "music" turned into lip sinchers and prancers and dancers and actors, and most of the real musicians quit the studios and went to go do their own thing in much different venues. Rap was one of the last things that still had a mass market; of course it was never actually "music", just performance art with some rhythmic elements. But apparently that kind of thing appeals to people who don't really care much for actual music.

I got into this a lot on the COVID stuff. Basically I'd show them, for example, that according to government stats more people died of COVID after the clot shot was introduced then before - which flat out means it doesn't work.

And they'd tell me their doctor told them it was good, the CDC said it was good, and the news said it was good and...you aren't even a doctor are you?

195 I'm generally not a fan of rap, but it's very danceable, which rock is not. There's a lot of low effort rap today, but, even though I don't really like it, I can acknowledge a lot of rappers, especially in the past, are very talented. You also have some metal where the lead vocalist screams the whole time. Rap takes more talent than screaming, IMO.

Anyway, it's largely a matter of taste.

A huge part of the devolution of music within the Church.

We went from Bach, to Psalms set to classical music, then the music became bar tunes with Psalm-like lyrics, then it turned to Fanny Crosby and the Wesley brothers. For a generation or two there were hymnals with four parts and most people could read musical notation. Then rock ballads were introduced with slight word modifications and the lyrics were projected on to the wall (sans musical notation). Then they reduced the ballads down to highly repetitive choruses that had the wisdom and length of bumper-stickers. Then that was reduced even more to lyrics with lots of long vowels so that tone deaf people can stylize what was once simple into nearly a yodel. During all of this decomposition, the abilities of the musicians depreciated from accomplished pianists and organists to strumming guitars and shaking tambourines.

Soon we will be grunting to bongos.

The loss of AM Top 40 radio stations which played a little bit of everything, rock, soul, ballads, pop, country ('A Boy Named Sue'), Louis Armstrong, et.al. AM Top 40 was cross cultural.

239 While I agree with some of the sentiment about church music, I find it pretty Western-focused. Other cultures around the world will worship differently through song.

I think the critical thing about church worship music is that it should be doctrinally sound and focus on God, honoring him. I think passion is also good - I don't think worship requires people to stand still. A lot of it is, again, a matter of taste.

Rap is hardly the only type of AA music. There's R&B and neo-soul, for example.

I'm not sure black folks have ever really been big on reading and writing music - a lot of people/most (?) play by ear and are fantastic at it and able to go with the flow. I didn't grow up in the US, but this is what I have seen in my experience.

Back in the 70s and 80s, you might hear about something from a comment in an interview, a mention on an album sleeve, a name dropped in a rock book...but you weren't going to hear it on the radio and an album for a kid was a big investment not to be taken lightly, and that's if you could even find it to purchase. Now if you are curious about anything you can quickly find it for free on You Tube and see what you think. Easy as pie.

One of the Doobie Brothers was a regular on Gutfield's Red Eye and he'd go in to the science of how we form our musical tastes. He indicated it's like you said, we mentally associate a type of music or sound with the whole range of emotions and experiences that we were in when we first heard and liked that music. And it is very hard to rewire. You can appreciate new types of music but it isn't going to move you in the same way.

276 "Top 40" was the exact opposite of radio stations that played a little bit of everything. Before Top 40 format, each big station had a classical department, a dance program, separate religious and public-service time, its own news and editorials, and often a studio band that was called on to play different genres at different times of the day. It was the coming of the single-format station that made all-pop, all-rock'n'roll, and all-country a generation war. FCC rule changes that allowed for the new (higher ad-content) format was a major factor in the behind-the-scenes political rise of Lyndon Johnson. We seem to have forgotten.

291 We went from Bach, to Psalms set to classical music, then the music became bar tunes with Psalm-like lyrics, then it turned to Fanny Crosby and the Wesley brothers. For a generation or two there were hymnals with four parts and most people could read musical notation."

I don't know how many here have ever done "shape note" singing, often referred to as Sacred Harp from the 19th century hymnbook of the same name. I have, and although it's a different type of musical notation, it's not that hard to pick up. What I found so surprising is that while it has the reputation of being some backwoods countrified version of choral music, you actually have to be quite talented musically to be able to participate in it, both in reading the music and singing it.

One thing I particularly like is that as opposed to standard 4 part arrangements, in shape note singing the Tenor line is most often the melody, and the top line is a descant. And women without the range for a top descant sing the tenor part along with the male tenors.

296 Seemingly the last gasp of rock as mainstream young people music was grunge, which was basically 70s album rock mixed with punk and heavy metal. It was artist driven and when that generation of creators imploded, the music industry decided they weren't about to be at the mercy of artists for product to sell any more and started hyping the rap and dance music as most of it is created by producers who wish to make product to sell and the performers are easily replaceable. The artists retreated to "alternative" where a big part of the appeal is NOT to be commercial so that the people who like it can feel superior to the people who don't like it. In the grunge era you could watch as bands that hit it big without changing their style suddenly became "uncool" because they were now popular. Its been nearly 30 years since the last new gen of popular rock stars..I suspect rock is now like jazz and blues in that it will become.a field that will no longer be mainstream popular. What this rap\disco\electronic thing eventually turns into I don't know. Personally I can't stand any of it, and I liked early rap OK, but I am probably going to be like those people that disliked rock after Sinatra.

Most of the instrumental tracks are synthetic.
No human involvement whatsoever.
It's more or less a click track.
Loops. Endless repetition is boring.

Melody is interesting.

There's a British guitarist with a YouTube channel, 'Wings of Pegasus' (the guy's name is Fil), who breaks down videos of many guitarists, from Roy Clark to Glen Campbell to Steve Howe to Tommy Emmanuel and many others, basically any good guitarist. Explains their fret technique, finger work on the strings, all of it. There are some videos of his band (the name of his channel) on YouTube as well and he's not bad.

Much of the industry, and the cities, are in the flood zone downstream. China would lose a huge chunk of its industrial capacity if the dam were destroyed. Plus they'd lose any electrical generation that the dam provides.

388 I don't think it's about being popular. I think it's more about having to live up to other people's expectations and demands on your time and talent.

Well the demands on time and talent is why they call it work right?

As for the expectations, is that really true anymore? Sure there are career paths from Taylor Swift pop tartlet to One Direction boyband...but you can do just about anything you want (as long as it doesn't seem to be culturally conservative)

399 My last comment reminds me of a joke... An old woman tells her husband to pick up a cabbage. He goes and stands in line all day and when he finally gets to the front, they're out of cabbage.

He starts shouting. "I'm a worker! I've worked every day since I was stripling, but for the time I fought in the Great Patriotic War! Is this the Socialism I built? Feh!"

A man in a trenchcoat wades through the line, and grips him by the shoulder. "Comrade," he says, "you should be more careful how you talk."

The guy clams up. He goes home, and the wife starts bitching... "You've been gone all day, and you come home with no cabbage!"

"Darling, I've got some bad news, and some good news. The bad news is, they're out of cabbage."

"Well, what's the good news?"

"They're also out of bullets."

417 The ability to read and write music is so difficult, I am constantly amazed anyone can do it.

Some 50-odd years ago, I started "reading" the scores of various classical works that I knew well, often following along with a recording of said work. For no reason at all, I've maintained this "hobby" ever since.

It's gotten to the point that, if I have even the slightest memory for how a work sounded, I can pick up the score and read it, "hearing" everything that goes on.

Of course, my adamant belief that new music went extinct after about... oh, let's say 1945... colors my judgment a bit.

Seriously, can anyone name a composer other than Shostakovich who was (a) born in the 20th Century, and (b) has composed works that have acquired permanent places on concert programs?

Try West Coast Swing.

It's versatile. You can dance it to contemporary, blues, classic rock. You don't have to wait for two-step music or go to a milonga to tango.

It's also an awesome looking dance and an unending challenge. If you get into it you'll find an entire community of WCS dancers and places where dances are held.

When I think of metal I think of Judas Priest or GnR. Maybe that isn't metal, I don't know.
I think you have heavier bands in mind.
I'm bummed that everything is pop or stupid rap and I know I'm old.

Posted by: CaliGirl at May 29, 2022 01:26 AM (P8YqT)

Definitely priest. GnR is pretty much hard rock.

I think Lamb of God, Slipknot, Dime Bag Darrel, Chimera, System of a Down. I really enjoy Tool, but I'm not sure why they are considered metal.

464 Try West Coast Swing.

It's versatile. You can dance it to contemporary, blues, classic rock. You don't have to wait for two-step music or go to a milonga to tango.

It's also an awesome looking dance and an unending challenge. If you get into it you'll find an entire community of WCS dancers and places where dances are held.

My BIL is/was a drummer in a heavy metal bar band. He introduced me to Priest. I wouldn't have listened to them on my own. I will still sing Breakin the law. I was in 7th grade when he would cover that song.
He liked heavier stuff than Priest but I don't remember it all. He and my sister divorced by the time I was 18.
I think metal is Priest and GnR is rock too, but I know nothing about metal.
I saw Priest at the Us festival and they rocked.

474 OK, I'll agree that Samuel Barber makes the list. Besides the Adagio for Strings, he wrote many fine works that deserve more performances than they get.

Aaron Copland doesn’t count. Born on 14 November 1900... six weeks before the start of the 20th Century.

There are two other composers that should be included, but I'm waiting to see if anyone else mentions them.

I looked it up, Benny Hill has been dead for 30 years. He died in 1992, found him dead in a chair where'd he been watching TV. Heart attack (he had other health problems on top of heart problems).

There was a rumor started that Benny was buried with gold bars, per his will. Some idiots actually dug up his grave based on that rumor one night. There was no gold, of course. After that, they poured a concrete slab over the top of his grave to prevent any more such attempts.

One tonight, Benny, the little bald old man, and some others are robbers trying to rob a jewelry store. The cops, which are all female, give chase. They run through a pasture, and have to cross a fence. The female cops, trying to get through the fence, get their clothes snagged and ripped off, down to their bras and garters.

The chase reverses, with Benny and the robbers chasing them. Yakkity sax ensues.

499 I read through a number of the music comments tonight. A critical innovation that took place in the 1600s was the standardization of having tempered scales. Prior to that scales were biased to certain keys and as you modulated out of them or just played in different ones they would sound completely out of tune. Tempered scales in effect detune everything to reach a reasonable average so you can play in any key and it sounds harmonious. Bach was a huge proponent of this and to prove the advantages of a tempered scale system he wrote The works known today as the well-tempered clavier. The standardization would permeate the keyboards that would follow and laid the foundation for what would be recognized as classical music theory which it's still in use today some 400 years later.

503 Prior to the 20th century music had to be written down if it was to be preserved. That radically changed with the advent of recording which became quite robust by the 1920s. The effect of this is you didn't need to know how to read or write music to build an audience plus your music would be preserved. This innovation allowed the great early African-American musicians whose musical culture was centered in the voice and not the architecture of classical music to take over the world. This cultural basis of modern music, which we think of as popular music but in reality is truly now classical music because of its endurance, as I have come to understand it endures because it's Central feel is in the offbeat or as I like to call it the backbeat. This allows emphasis forces the body to move upwards which is the essential heartbeat of dance and is opposed to what you find in standard classical music. Toss in some amplified guitars, an American drum kit, Elvis's hips and we're off to the races. After years of thinking about all this I'm now believe that American 20th century music is absolutely on par with the previous thousand years of western music. It is truly a profound body of work.

You'll see the edit when he starts heating it. Just cut out the time in between. This is the traditional CHicom street popcorn vendor method, I see. It takes about 10 minutes or so to heat it to release pressure. If you carefully watch the gauge, you'll see it has moved.
