61 Those hands and feet do look pretty mannish. I don't think this could have been about a tranny specifically, not in 1988. Such things were known, but they were rare and society at large looked at them, shall we say, askance. There wasn't the "You Must Celebrate Xer New Gender!" craziness of today.

76 I see it as a study in contrasts, of colors and of angles (the plane) and human body curves.

Or it might just have been that the artist liked planes and painted one atop his favorite model.

97 Seems like it's cropped oddly. I'd like to see her hair more. Also, I don't know if the foot seems a bit large due to some forced perspective, but I cannot rule out an alopecia suffering sasquatch as the model.

The multiple shadows are well done. I don't think I've seen that done before.

101 There's an interesting contrast of motion here. The work has an upward thrust to its lines but is very bottom heavy. My eye keeps going up and down like a roller coaster over this work. It's quite dynamic for a static subject.

The colors work well here too. The red should dominate the gold and pale ivory skin tone, but the centrality of the nude and the large white wall counter it effectively.

144 I've spent a bit of time looking at it now. I'm in the minority, but I like it.

Probably because I am a runner, I am more attracted to an athletic female body than the more traditional softer approach.

Clearly the artist is trying to convey a "hard" style rather than a "soft" style. Which is about as far as my art ignorant brain is able to go.

It works for me. And I would have found the model to be very attractive as well.

So Stiglitz was having an affair with O'Keeffe and his wife literally walked in on then...Awkward....

Looking at the pictures, Emmy wasn't a bad look woman but also a lot older then O'Keeffe.

One of my old co-workers (from Ford Aerospace in Las Vegas back in the late 80's) passed away about five years ago, and his friends organized a reunion in his memory.

He was a big model rocket builder, so we all got together on some salt flat between Vegas and the California state line, and I got to assemble my first model rocket. Attached a GoPro camera to it as well.

Man, that was the most fun I'd had in a couple of decades -- a total blast and laugh-fest at those unfortunate ones that crashed & burned off the launch pads ...

273 If we want to talk politics, I find it interesting that a group of Germans were arrested for plotting to overthrow their government. I have a feeling that one of these attempts will eventually succeed.

Germany has signed the death warrant for their country, by shutting down nuclear, and signing on with the EU on banning Russian gas. Their entire manufacturing model relies on abundant and cheap natural gas, not only for electricity, but for feedstock for their manufacturing. With no cheap gas, there is no way that Germany can maintain their manufacturing base, and therefore the entire country goes bankrupt. It reminds me of 1920, when the French occupied the Ruhr Valley in order to take the reparations Germany owed, and we know how that turned out.

It also lends credence to the theory that Germany was about to agree to a separate peace with Russia in order to get the gas, so someone affiliated with NATO blew up the Nordstream.

I can't speak to furniture, certainly not too good for surfaces that need grain, but for painted wood - doors, door/window casings Bondo is brilliant. Far more durable than most wood fillers, still works pretty easily, dries fast.

They sell a red version specifically labeled as a wood filler, still a two part polyester resin, I haven't found a difference between that and the usual gray auto body stuff.

Just keep the area well ventilated while using it and wear a mask and keep the shop vac handy while sanding.

I think some of those things are still around but way more expensive then when we were messing around with them.

I do occasionally pull out my older model DJI Phantom 3 quad copter drone and fly it around. It takes a lot of effort to get it prepped to fly though since it sits for months on end between flights. And the software app to run it is junk.

312 Those hands and feet do look pretty mannish. I don't think this could have been about a tranny specifically, not in 1988. Such things were known, but they were rare and society at large looked at them, shall we say, askance. There wasn't the "You Must Celebrate Xer New Gender!" craziness of today.

315 Their entire manufacturing model relies on abundant and cheap natural gas, not only for electricity, but for feedstock for their manufacturing.

THIS is the point I keep yammering on.

How much of something like a Tesla can you build without elastomers, polymers, vast amounts of energy (more than you'll ever get out of 'renewables') to smelt and forge aluminum, etc? Just about nothing.

I'd imagine unit cost on Shanghai-build Model Ys is SUBSTANTIALLY lower than Berlin-build, and I think Brandenburg is subsidizing the hell out of that plant anyway.

New furniture is made from mysterious space wood. There was a long workbench with 16 good sized drawers in the basement of my old house that was there when I moved in, and all built with 3/4 pine. Last year when I moved I dismantled it for the wood. I pulled every nail and flat packed it. The wife asked why. I told her thats probably 50-60 year old pine, and you're not going to find wood that nice these days. I planed one of the pieces recently. Nice stuff, tight straight grain.

The most compelling reason to think they're making examples as they're entirely corrupt is that half the old "royal families" of Europe, still tout their lineage and call themselves kings and princes. And they could do no worse than some of the people in power now. The Bonaparte heirs could not be worse than Macaroon, and they're probably worried that some of their people might long for the days when they could take pride in their nation without being called raycisss

I knew a guy who did upholstery. Ex con I think. He would drive around apartment complexes where a lot of elderly lived, checking the dumpsters. He was looking for old furniture. He said the springs were steel and way better than anything we get today, even high end stuff. He would trash pick it and fix it up, put it in the window of his shop and it would sell within days. It was better than you could buy in a high end store and it was his time, knowhow and cloth/batting etc. He did pretty well. Pretty sure he wasn't paying taxes tho.

386 If one has some woodworking skills, the best place to get furniture is where old items are being discarded - junk shops, etc. New furniture is rarely made of real wood, and old furniture, made of solid wood, can be restored relatively easily.

Posted by: Thomas Paine at December 08, 2022 10:28 AM (lTGtQ)

New furniture is made from mysterious space wood. There was a long workbench with 16 good sized drawers in the basement of my old house that was there when I moved in, and all built with 3/4 pine. Last year when I moved I dismantled it for the wood. I pulled every nail and flat packed it. The wife asked why. I told her thats probably 50-60 year old pine, and you're not going to find wood that nice these days. I planed one of the pieces recently. Nice stuff, tight straight grain. Miles ahead of anything you'll see in home depot.

I'mm going to buy 40 acres in Tenn. Plant black walnut, and just let it grow. After I'm dead a few decades my kids can harvest and sell it. It'll hold its value better than my 401k.

387 You can't get #1 pine anymore; is all #2
The irs changed the rules and wood cut and drying, but not for sale, has to be counted as inventory.
Meaning, the sawmill can't let it sit and dry for 2-5 years, they have to sell it that year.

I remodeled my old house. 2×6×14 in the attic. One or less knots the whole length. You will never find that in any lumber yard today.

400 I'm sitting next to an art object I rescued from demolition in 1983. It's an oak panel-8'X8'-fresco enamel and gold leaf. Came from a bakery company headquarters near Madison Square Garden. It's titled "What's in a Donut" and has scenes of wheat harvest, farm with cows and chickens, spices, research, etc. The artist was Louis Ross, who was a WPA artist. Dated 1941, it's done in Art Deco style and is quite beautiful. I think the artist would be amused to find out how his art made it to a home in NC. My wife drove our van down the West Side Highway to pick it up, as I was running the renovation it came from. We tied the art to the roof of the van, since it was way too large to fit inside.

405 I read somewhere that American manufacturing orders for China have dropped by 40% and they're holding shipping for full loads.

Posted by: Miley


Companies are pulling their manufacturing out of China as fast as they can. Add to that the surprising move by the junta over here to shut down chip technology to China has made a big impact. In addition, in January, Russian oil can't be insured in tankers, and China was getting a lot of their oil that way, and suddenly the idea that China won't be manufacturing in a few years becomes possible.

The only company doubling down on Chinese manufacturing is Apple that I know of.
