matt - deplore me if you must

A friend posted a link to a documentary on the making of Aja today, so that was an hour gone from my day.

Went back and listened to some of the songs for the zillionth time. One of my favorite albums. Nothing like it that I have found.

Listening to the drummers and bass players describe what they brought to a song, or when Larry Carlton explained how he would interpret Becker & Fagan's ideas to the other musicians was really something. Bringing in Wayne Shorter was simply genius. Michael McDonald explaining the difficult of multi-tracking his harmonies on Peg, this represents some of the top musicians of the late 20th Century at the tops of their games.

I used to not pay as much attention to I got the News or Black Cow and Home at Last, and yet upon listening to them again, they are simply amazing.

I remember seeing Mahavishnu John McLaughlin and his Orchestra and saying to myself WTF, but the The Dan and Weather Report clarified what fusion could be and I don't think anyone equalled either in the genre.

Don Randi is good and Zappa had influences from all over the place, but those few albums are the ones that have stood the test of time.

Captain Hate

That's an old clip when he was on the Cavs by a Golden State fan.

jimmyk

Welp, presumably pomposity exists on a spectrum so that could be like saying I love arrogant bastards as compared to complete psychopaths. :)

Yes, there's that. And the ones I know of were women, so maybe less prone to arrogance. But also the missus is prone to generalizing based on a couple of data points.

Captain Hate

The entry points for fusion with me were Larry Coryell's Eleventh House and Chick Corea's Return to Forever. The latter group I saw opening for Weather Report promoting the Mysterious Traveler lp and frankly RTF stole the show.

Sidwhite

Time Out. There is no House Impeachment Hearing. Pelosi is not allowing the House to take that up. There is a Speakers investigation, but no House investigation. Trump team, and all GOP polls need to push back every time a dem operative in the MSM try’s to use the term. Don’t accept the premise.

I confess to being a bit confused by the actions of some Repub politicians.
Do they fail to recognize we are at a juncture? The time is coming quickly when they'll ask voters for support and be told "I'll give you every bit as much support as you gave my guy: President Donald John Trump."

GUS

We....the collective JOM we....who most certainly have an I.Q. 40-50 points higher than any MFM FULL COMMIE ENTITY......cannot, can no longer, can in no way...accept the FULL COMMIE/MFingM, template of horseshit to RESPOND TO.

They are CLEARLY, under no circumstances are "THEY" NOT...CLEARLY....trying to COUP, the very CONSTITUTIONAL EXISTANCE of our NATIONS' very EXISTANCE. JimNorCAL, do you have ANY DOUBT, that our REPUBLIC is being THREATENED by FULL COMMIES, that accuse YOU, of being a threat to AMERICA'S existance, because YOU, will not allow a COMPLETE overthrow of a DULY ELECTED PRESIDENT?????? There is NOTHING legitimate about what THEY are doing. Dot the i, cross the t, and carry the MFM disgusting FULL COMMIE BIASED MEDIA forward.
It's GO TIME my BROTHER.

Saw Weather Report at the Ahia Theatre in Cowlumbus mebbe 25 yrs ago. Jaco was at his peak. Wonderful. After a mid-session break, Jaco came out and did about a 15 minute solo where he recorded a loop on one bass and then picked up another to do the lead over the loop. Pretty well brought the house down.

Good morning!

Having a discussion with my friend yesterday, and AGAIN the question came up of why people don't retire and go home like normal people.

Elijah Cummings will bring the subject up again. I think corruption and seniority both play a part in it.

He’ll still easily get re-elected. Probably even vote.....several times.

I’ll repeat the earlier Bah!! and add a pffftttt...

MissMarple2

Jane,

I suppose that is true to a large extent. I am beginning to also wonder if some of it is "keeping an eye on things". Why is Mitt Romney there, for example?

MissMarple2

Is there a special election for Cummings' seat?

henry

Will Cummings wife run for continuity of graft?

MissMarple2

I listened to Peter Schweizer, author of "Clinton Cash," on You Tube this morning.

He gave a talk at a university back in 2016, when the candidates left were Cruz and Trump on the GOP side. A man got up (sounded Russian) and asked if the mood in the country was bad enough for a revolution.

Schweizer said that 75% of Americans thought DC was corrupt (that figure astounded me) but he trusted the American people. He then said that he thought his supporters looked at Trump the way the townspeople looked at the gunfighter they hired to clean up their town in the movie "A Fistful of Dollars." He noted that when there was criticism of something Trump said, Trump's supporters weren't bothered, usually saying that we needed someone who would talk like that and tell it like it is.

The signs of Trump's win were there. It's just that the political class couldn't see it.

henry,

I know. I wonder if Baltimore could use a rally....

Gentlejim@ 6:22 made me laugh.

Jane

Henry,

She has a company, a corrupt one which has been funneling money to herself IIRC. So it depends which “job” would be more lucrative. Cause it’s all about the cash.

Buckeye

I wonder if Baltimore could use a rally....

He should start be projecting images of the garbage piles and say,

"What have you got to lose??"

Buckeye

Glad that black victim prick is dead.

Wonder if the media will try to turn him into a Saint?

Another Bob

“Bah?”

CH noted that I posted an obviously old link, not realizing it, which annoys me.

But if it’s representative of a certain JOM zeitgeist, I’ll sign up for that too.

jim nj

Finally something worth commenting on. No false platitudes. Cummings is dead. Good for him. He was a slime-ball.

I suppose I should be more gracious, but it would be wasted on such a partisan hack.

Another Bob

Some of the best things were invented or discovered while trying to do something else. So I’ll take any credit that might accrue for any trend of seemingly random but deeply meaningful “Bah”s.

Another Bob

“Wonder if the media will try to turn him into a Saint?”

You’re really wondering about that?

The world is a little bit better this morning for him not being in it anymore.

Heard this story on last night's news and thought it was so bizarre. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/10/17/valerie-lundeenely-married-tarzan-actor-ron-ely-stabbed-death/

Not an actor I had thought about in years, but that show was a vivid memory from being a kid. I really did want a cheetah and ended up with a silk kimono instead as a continuation from one of my gf's trips went on from africa to japan.

Implicit acknowledgement that Cocaine Mitch doesn’t have the votes to dismiss impeachment articles, making a trial entirely up to Pelosi and Schiff?

https://twitter.com/foxreports/status/1184541997048258565?s=21

I keep telling you people we’re nowhere near in a good place re. Swamp draining.

What more damage gets done by permitting those clowns to use impeachment simply as a way of overturning elections they don’t like.

Buckeye

Let's be really obnoxious. Who do we want next?

Nancy.

Let the House devolve into a brawl over the Speakership.

And Little Adam Schitt won't be able to hide behind her skirts anymore.

I suspect he just kept it private. I Googled over the previous couple weeks and this was the only story I found that mentioned he had been ill, and it doesn't suggest he was dying:

I think the IG report is being held up by the people who get to review it - who may also be the people included in it.

Another Bob

“ Cummings was in hospice care when he died, his staff said.
======================

Wouldn’t shock me to learn he’s been dead for a few days. Issues of secession (meaning the required deals and payoffs) need to get sorted.

Anyone check if RBG was in the bed in the adjacent room?

Jane, pretty sure there's a time limit on the review. But they must be able to request changes (you know, change "reckless" to "careless," or "criminal" to "in poor judgment," that sort of thing), so then the report has to be rewritten.

Another Bob

Ok, I’ll own being fooled by the “foxreports” handle (just got the first coffee).

Bah. There, I’ve made it official.

But at this point, not a lot of reason to believe they aren’t on the winning side. Did you really think this nonsense would get even this far?

Heh, presuming that's a William Jefferson allusion, not a Jeffrey Dahmer one.

Much comment on this article. Legal analogies--grand jury, cross examination--are useless. House can do what it wants. Point is, Volker testimony seems to show Dems dead set on proving a story and resistant to evidence that doesn't support the story. ow.ly/tw2850wNxlO

James D.

How did we not know this before today?

I suspect he just kept it private.

He didn't have the right to keep it private, as CHAIRMAN of a major freaking House committee!

If he was that sick, which obviously he was, he should have stepped down from the chairmanship, and resigned his seat in the House, and THEN requested privacy for him and his family.

The seat is not HIS. It's not hereditary. It belongs to the people of his district. And the Chairmanship of the committee does not belong to him, or to the unelected staffers who obviously have been running amok in his name for God knows how long.

And I would say the same about a GOP congressman who I liked and respected. It's is ABSOLUTE FUCKING BULLSHIT, in plain English, that these people are allowed to act as feudal lords and barons and we're supposed to treat them that way. ABSOLUTELY NOT. If you are no longer capable of doing your job - for which WE pay you a generous salary and gold-plated lifetime benefits - then you RESIGN. It's really simple.

James D.

Did you really think this nonsense would get even this far?

I did. We already knew the Dems were drunk on their own power and believe their own lies; we already knew the MSM was a fully bought and paid for appendage of the DNC; we already knew the House GOP leadership is utterly useless; we already knew the federal bureaucracy is completely corrupt and treasonous; we already knew the GOP Senate is a snakepit of treachery and ego run amok.

I think he could actually be removed from office. I absolutely believe there are enough corrupt/greedy/cowardly/petty/you-name-it GOP Senators to go along with the Dems and do it, regardless of the damage it will do to the country.

James D.

Sorry, I am COMPLETELY out of patience, and I don't feel like - despite all the good that the President has accomplished - that we are actually winning at all, and I don't find any of the political games fun or amusing in any way.

And I don't trust ANYONE in Washington outside of the President himself. I don't think there are ANY white hats at DoJ. I don't trust Barr, I don't trust the IG, I don't trust anyone in the GOP House or Senate contingent. NONE of them. If any of them ARE trustworthy, or patriotic, it's FAR past time for them to show it, regardless of the possible cost to themselves.

They took oaths, it's time to honor them.

Geez Jane! "The old fashion way." I spit out my coffee. :)

James,I agree with your comment. These people think they are indispensable,even when they become ill or so elderly they have to be wheeled in to vote.
