Jack is Back!

Damn. I just posted a request for catsmeat to send me a workable link to the opera.

Jack is Back!

GUS,

Sill a friend.

TM, is that opening on Broadway?

Captain Hate

War Eagle with momentum!

Manuel Transmission

Henry: the “non weird” countries cannot be built into democracies any time soon, they will remain tribal shitholes for generations to come.

That smacked me upside the head like a 10lb mackerel. If we based our policies on fundamentals instead of fantasies and wishful thinking, we could immediately refrain from ever trying to impose democracy on those 3rd world shitholes.

henry

MT, I am amazed that article ever got printed.

Wtf. Auburn. No War Eagle tonight.

GUS,

He was torn between going into the clergy and marrying his sweetie, so he went to NM Tech first then to Navy..

Jack is Back!

Goodbye Auburn. What a mess. Congrats Georgia.

From the last thread:Amy Barrett, get the haircut and color, and make sure your toiletry bag is in order.

Maybe a suit of armor too. It will get ugly, though they'll have a hard time smearing her the way they did Kavanaugh. I'm guessing they'll find a way to call her racist and anti-LGBTQRSTUV.

GUS

Did Amy Barrett ever beat that GANG RAPE rap????

henry

Jimmyk, impeached Presidents can’t appoint judges. Just wait for it.

jimmyk

LOL, the WSJ posts this "breaking news": "A White House official feared a leak of the transcript of Trump's Ukraine call could be politically damaging, testimony shows."

Yawn. This is supposed to be impeachable? That some official thought the politics wasn't good? I remember when doing what you think is right despite the politics was considered a good thing.

JM Hanes

jimmyk:

I had to laugh when somebody insisted that Republican judges ought to have to recuse themselves from any LGBTetc cases for bias.

JM Hanes

jimmyk:

Probably meant damaging to the Dems.

jimmyk

JiB, I believe Catsmeat said the video would soon be available here:

And also on YouTube. I'm sure she'll post a link, but you'll probably be able to find it by searching.

Jack is Back!

Still cant find it. Back to football.

Another Bob

Amom, you want to link us up on that RBG news? My feed got nuthin’ like that.

JM Hanes

For the non-players, if there's actually anyone else around:

All is not well at Notre Dame de Paris:

A public dispute has arisen between the French officials in charge of the reconstruction of the fire-damaged Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. General Jean-Louis Georgelin, who is President Emmanuel Macron's special representative on the project, stunned MPs by insulting the chief architect in charge of the cathedral, telling him “to shut his big mouth” in front of the National Assembly’s cultural commission.

Let's hear it for that famous French diplomacy. As far as I know, nobody has blamed Trump for the fracas yet.

Also in Paris, a century ago, we find Loie Fuller and the Serpentine [sic], a performance in which the dancer transforms herself into... something.

Loie dust


Think You’d Make a Great Museum Director?

Mondo Museum, a simulation game out next year from Kitfox Games, will task players with building their own institutions, filling them with interesting things to see, and making sure the whole place runs smoothly. It’s like Sim City or Roller Coaster Tycoon—but for people who want to run the Met.
You're wondering about the "metrics" of success, aren't you?
[B]y and large, the game is not about replicating the modern museum. Instead, it posits an alternative form of institution, one free from colonial histories, strict genre restraints, and underpaid labor.

In the world of Mondo, art is never purchased, and artifacts are never obtained through imperialism or theft; all historical objects live in institutions near to where they were created.

Oh never mind.

Captain Hate

jimmyk,

Even though I haven't subscribed to Rupert's Gazette for almost a decade, I still get email alerts. When I got that one I thought of terminating it once and for all before shrugging for now.

JM Hanes

Is Narciso locked out again?

Jack is Back!

Let Notre Dame collapse because when I type it in I get this: (Not)Recipes .

Think about that.

JiB@7:55, “soon” meaning not yet. I missed the first half of it so I’ll be looking for it too.

MissMarple2

I a, home! Been home for half an hour but had to feed the dogs, unload the car, and get caught up with all the news here.

I am so sorry to hear the news of matt and Kev. I really understand and sympathize, having gone through the same thing several years ago. At least you guys can settle it face to face, rather than getting the news in an email!

Lovely shower at a winery restaurant basement bar in old Cincinnati. Great wine, lovely and exotic hor d'ouevres, NO games except for a raffle which my teacher sister won, which prize was a basket with a bottle of wine, a throw, and a candle.

Coming home on I-74 traffic was backed up due to an overturned semi in the median, which looked frightening and if we hadn't have stopped for gas, we would have been right next to it. Pretty scary!

JM Hanes

Remember back when you won't supposed to doodle on your homework? "Thanks to a doodle experts now say this unattributed painting is by Botticelli. I'm posting a picture of the painting because I couldn't actually make out the doodle on the back.

Can you tell that I finally bit the bullet and paid the extra fee for Photobucket to keep hosting pix for me?


Sooo, what do Vermeer and anonymous Egyptian muralists have in common? Yellow paint.

Hi, Jack--it's not there now, but in a few weeks there will be a cleaned-up youtube (with the better of the scenes from the two performances merged) which I will send you by email and also post here. So it's coming, just not available yet.

Doodle looks like a medici silhouette to me, JMH.

About MOMA. Once years ago I took a visiting friend from aHK to the National Gallery of art. She was astonished how easily the guards interacted with us, talking about the paintings and showing us interesting feature we might have missed--like a dead cockroach embedded in a Jackson Pollock painting we were looking at.
Very different than British Museums where the guards treat you suspiciously and show no great interest in the art.

Sometime later, I was at MOMA and they had an exhibit which featured a guard's work. A donor had somehow learned about his work , loved it and sponsored the exhibition. My friend from HK would never have imagined such a thing.

CH, apparently there was some change in the routine for Trump’s physicals.

As far as I can tell, no reputable party is reporting that even as unconfirmed report or rumor.

Dafuq is "routine" emergency surgery anyway?

I don't wish bad things on little old ladies, but man it wouldn't it suck all the oxygen out of Schiff's little circus?

“Which account about RBG is correct--chest pains of emergency surgery?”

I don’t see even a hint of either. I wish someone would supply a link.

I have scrolled through 3 re-loads of my Twitter page and have seen nothing else.

The Infamous Ignatz

--MT, I am amazed that article ever got printed.--

Interesting theory I suppose but it seems to ignore the fact that Christianity itself turned the world upside down as far as tribalism, kinship, individualism and all the rest of it are concerned from the very start.
Your family was no longer blood relations but your fellow children of God. You were no longer a possession of the state or your master but were a creation and possession of God. And you were no longer connected to God through birth, tribe or even religion, but each believer had an individual relationship to God with no need of priest or shaman or other intermediary. We could now, as Hebrews 4 says, boldly approach the throne of grace ourselves.

Catsmeat

Ig, so right.

Miss Marple:

I LOL'd when I got to the end of that report on the President's excellent health over at The Hill. Is it just me, or does it seem like they can't help themselves as they wrap up the column with:

The health report released in February did not indicate that Trump took a cognitive exam during his most recent checkup.
I guess today's test didn't include one either, but since it was only Part 1 of the exam, they had to go all the way back to February to insert cognitive testing into the mix.

clarice

I think the ABC twitter report on RBG is not true. No one can find it.

JM Hanes

Are the election returns for Louisiana coming in yet? Or does their election counting generally extend into the wee hours of the next day. Or week.

CH,

You're too entertaining to killfile.

I must have missed your link, but with all the subsequent comments I wanted to see the video of Myles Garrett.

Bing videos was bereft of that video. The few I found wouldn't play or were a series of still shots. And a shot back at ya :)

If you had read my post of last night on Iran suddenly, on Friday, raising gas prices you might see a connection to the burning of the central bank.

This thread has statements from the White House.

Another Bob, I know things can be pre-scheduled on Twitter. I was trying to collect whatever evidence was available for Captain Hate.

MissMarple2

This morning I posted my suspicions about Chad Pergram's news that Mark Sandy had been subpoenaed. I just ran across this tweet:


Lee Zeldin
@RepLeeZeldin

Just finished the depo of OMB staffer, Mark Sandy, in Schiff’s Capitol basement bunker. He came in to testify about why there was a hold on aid to Ukraine. His answer was very bad for Schiff’s fairy tale. This transcript needs to be released BEFORE the next public hearing on Tue!

Another Bob

Gotcha MM. Was only trying to spread word that we can’t make too much of tweet timing. 👍🏻

Thought it was obvious JMH. If articles are voted out of the house, chances are about 100% the democrats and media will try to strip Trump’s power immediately. It’s up to Mitch to not get sucked into that re. appointments,

ABob:

These days I'm never sure whether people are using the word "Impeached" technically or generally. I assumed McConnell meant impeached and convicted, as most people seem to be u sing the term these days. Technically, of course, you'd be correct that it's the House that impeaches the President. I'm also sure you're quite right that the Dems will immediately start claiming that it is incumbent on the President to abstain from exercising his powers, but I have a hard time seeing McConnell, Wizard of Rulz, falling for that. He might sell somebody out, but he's not going to get tricked.

The transformation of Kanye has just been incredible. Although he's far from someone I willingly listen to, I know having him on your side is a lot more significant than, say, James Taylor.

Captain Hate

Rispone will probably lose but that it's even close is winning.

Ah, I see. I missed that. Thanks for the correction.

“New Orleans precincts coming in.”

Not good. Don’t think Fast Eddie will make it.

JM Hanes

Captain Hate:

It's not quite as much of a transformation as you might think. Kanye's first big hit, back in 2009 was Jesus Walks, has some pretty clear religious roots.

MJW

The link given earlier seems to provide more up-to-date Louisiana results.

With 79% in:
John Bel Edwards (DEM): 622,727
"Eddie" Rispone (REP): 632,350

It all depends on which precincts remain.


JM Hanes

CH:

Or perhaps you were talking about his political transformation, which has certainly been transformed since his pronouncement that "George Bush hates black people."

JM Hanes

transformed s/b dramatic above

clarice

rispone has an 11K lead with only one parish left to report.

JM Hanes

Still 700+ precincts to come in, but I wouldn't know a what that means even if I knew which ones they were. That portal is a bit confusing, because in the governor's race the Republican progress strip is green, while the Republican Sect'y State candidate's is purple. I wonder what the total number of absentee votes might be, and if enough will remain uncounted till they know how many the Democrats will need. The craziest people in America come from Louisiana, so no telling how things will come out.

Captain Hate

Or perhaps you were talking about his political transformation, which has certainly been transformed since his pronouncement that "George Bush hates black people."

Exactly. I never thought that within my lifetime the GOP would be on the right side of popular culture.

JM Hanes

How high is the bar set for challenging the results in LA, I wonder? Too lazy to look it up.

MJW

Sadly, with 90% in, the Dem has taken the lead.

mike in houston

Clarice that is one parish absentee vote. There are still about 400 precincts to report
