I remember the village voice, I was somewhat current with it in the early 90s, that's where Michael tomasky of the basiliak the late Wayne Barrett scourge of Giuliani and William bastone of the smoking gun got their start.

Captain Hate

I thought The Village Voice had already been defunct; maybe that was the dead tree version. For all the good stuff they had (Nat Hentoff mostly, although there's another writer I think I'm having a senior moment remembering) they had tons of crap. Once my younger daughter took me to a photo exhibit in some loft on the West Side; it was terribly banal and we both looked at each other and said in unison "this is so Voice". That was at least 18 years ago so it's been a parody for a long time.

A friend of mine who has good musical tastes used to, I thought, slavishly follow Robert Christgau's recommendations excessively although it probably introduced him to some good stuff I missed out on. I grew to hate Gary Giddins; my favorite story of that knob was that he had Cecil Taylor over to his place to listen to music. Giddins was all pumped up about impressing him with his rare imports and CT just wanted to hear some James Brown. To Giddins's self deprecating credit he included that in the article although there's the largest part of me that thinks he was hurting for word count because he wrote with no insight into Taylor's music.

Not that I'm opinionated. Nytol

Gus,

I don't mind Tom R's ideas, just the way he phrases some of them.

I saw your post. And I saw Tom R's reply to me earlier. He posted his response to you late because he was at a football game.

I thought it was gratuitous that he waited so long to respond. OK, he was late responding because he was busy. But Tom R, if you're listening, you stewed all over that response during a football game?

CH,

I know the feeling. I worked in photography in my early twenties. Looked at hundreds of books of photos to see what others had done. I could usually identify photos as being by Arbus, Adams, Walker, etc.

Went to some photo exhibits and all I saw was someone without an imagination who had money enough to travel producing unremarkable photographs.

If JMHaines took her her twenty best ice exploration photos and blew them up to exhibit size, she would have far surpassed some of them.

Random photographs without a theme or a sense of a photographer's style are boring.

I guess my sense was don't show me something mundane. Show me something mesmerizing. Show me that you've moved beyond average or explored something in depth and gained some understanding.

Because there's a financial cost to criticizing anything China does, and those foundations (just like FB and Apple and Google and...) aren't willing to pay it, because their so-called "principles" don't mean squat when there's a price tag of any kind attached.

Holy Shit, a Medicine Man got kilt [sic] by a Mountain Man in Indian Country:

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) -- Two more teens have been charged in connection to the November shooting death of a former IU School of Medicine doctor. An 18-year-old and a 15-year-old were charged in December.

The Marion County Prosecutor's Office on Friday announced charges of felony murder and burglary against 18-year-old Nehemiah Merriweather, while Devon Seats, 17, faced charges of murder, felony murder and two charges of burglary. New information obtained by IMPD detectives led to the charges, the prosecutor's office said.

Oy. In Joseph Wambaugh Cop Speak characters often refer to a senior SGT or mentor as their rabbi.

Two men headed to trial in October for an NYPD bribery scandal want potential jurors to be asked if hearing evidence about cops having sex with prostitutes would make them unable to be fair jurors.

Lawyers for ex-NYPD Deputy Inspector James Grant and de Blasio donor Jeremy Reichberg ask in a proposed jury questionnaire: “You may hear evidence or testimony from one or more individuals in this case about police officers having sex with prostitutes. Do you have strong feelings about such evidence or testimony that would make it difficult for you to render a fair and impartial verdict?”

FBI Arrests Five Jihadists Connected to New Mexico Compound Days After Multiple Charges Were Dropped

The announcement comes after local prosecutors dropped charges in the death of a 3-year-old boy at the compound site. Taos County District Attorney Donald Gallegos said Friday his office would now seek grand jury indictments involving the death. Gallegos said seeking indictments would allow more time to gather evidence.

"The defendants, Jany Leveille, 35, a Haitian national illegally present in the United States, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40, Hujrah Wahhaj, 37, Subhanah Wahhaj, 35, and Lucas Morton, 40, are charged in a criminal complaint that was filed earlier today in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico," the bureau said in a statement.

"The criminal complaint charges Jany Leveille with being an alien unlawfully in possession of firearms and ammunition in the District of New Mexico from Nov. 2017 through Aug. 2018," the bureau said. "The criminal complaint charges the other four defendants with aiding and abetting Leveille in committing the offense, and with conspiring with Leveille to commit the offense."

Ah yes, Canuckistan. That great country to our SOUTH.

As soon as we would turn 19 years old, we would head across the border to Windsor, Ontario, Canada to have a drink or ten. I thought it was great to go to THE BEER STORE and have what you ordered come out on a conveyer belt. We would invariably find some out of the way park and get drunk while playing frisbee. Ah, such memorable days that I cannot seem to remember.

As of July 1st, pot is legal in Ontario, Canada for those 19 and older. I wonder if they call them THE BUD STORE? We have a Ballot Proposal for Recreational Marijuana here in Michigan for the November voting.

Proposal 1 would allow individuals 21 years of age or older to possess, use, transport, or process 2.5 ounces or less of marijuana or 15 grams of marijuana concentrate. Individuals would be allowed to grow up to 12 marijuana plants, as long as the plants are not visible from a public place, and store up to 10 ounces of marijuana from the plants in locked containers in their residences for personal use. Individuals would be allowed to share or transfer without payment up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana to other persons 21 years of age or older. Being under the influence of marijuana would remain illegal while operating motor vehicles, aircrafts, motorboats, off-road recreational vehicles, or snowmobiles. Smoking marijuana would remain illegal in all public places.

Being a Libertarian, I will vote yes on this ballot proposal. The war on drugs has failed miserably, but it seems like we are restarting it again.

For me, it is all in the past. I celebrated 29 years clean/sober on August 28th. As I work on Federal Government Work for my company, I couldn't partake even if I wanted to as marijuana is still a Federal Schedule 1 drug.

And yet Ontario seems to be a sober province, a fellow I went to college with, like Ryan gosling could pass for American, he wouldn't have made that silly mistake.

How many more days does this funeral orgy (JMH) last?

At least they laid The Queen of Soul to rest after a ceremony lasting 7 hours!!!!!!!

Every local channel seemed to be covering her passing every chance they got. Can't they just let her rest in peace?

Sidenote: Back in the early 1990's, there was a delivery service called Door to Door that I worked for as a delivery driver when I was in college. Customers would call us to order, we would submit orders to the restaurants, then assign a driver via CB Radio to pick up and deliver the order. I had one delivery to Aretha Franklin's home, but still not sure who ordered it. It took 25 minutes to find out who ordered it and get paid for it, which someone just paid and said they would find out who ordered it. The house was a mess and seemed like 20+ people lived there. I guess I am not surprised to find out that she had no will and that 5 children had already filed claims in the county court system.

I just saw this on the Travel Channel (I think) so I dug it up.
