Real Vs. The Unreal

Practical Effects - 1.jpg


I don't think it'll be a terribly controversial thing to say here that practical effects work better, generally, than computer generated effects. I think the models used in 60s and 70s sci-fi are more convincing than many cutting edge special effects today. Even comparing the original King Kong model to that of the Peter Jackson film, there's a very palpable difference in how the two carry on film. In the original, you may notice when Kong is part of a background while live actors are part of the foreground, there being a difference in lighting and clarity between the two, but you're never unsure that the camera was actually looking at something real. In Jackson's movie, for all the money they threw at the screen, Kong often had a weightless quality (especially when he jumps) that make the visual look somewhat less real by comparison. It's an effervescent quality that's hard to define.

Although it's easy to find examples from big budget action movies, I think that the effect of actually capturing things on film is better encapsulated with smaller examples. We don't have much experience with space ships, but we do understand what a bird flying through the sky looks like.

Below are two examples from some older movies where the fact that the filmmakers actually captured the events on camera had an appreciably visceral effect on me.


Bad Day at Black Rock

Practical Effects - 2.jpg

Bad Day at Black Rock is a very small little movie from the 50s staring Spencer Tracy as a man who shows up to a very small town called Black Rock looking for a man he's never met for personal reasons. It turns out that the townspeople killed the man he's looking for and don't really like the fact that Tracy is poking around. At one point, Tracy is driving back from a farm outside of town and one of the hoods, played by Earnest Borgnine, is pursuing him in a car.

The two are driving, one in front of the other, along a single lane road with what looks like a steep drop off to one side. It also looks like they're driving at about 50 miles per hour when the car behind rams into the car ahead.

It doesn't seem like much, but it shocked me, because it really looked like they went out to the desert, by a dangerous drop off and rammed two cars against each other. The normal faking that a modern day movie would use (composition and green screen predominantly) were very obviously not being used. That feeling of reality was cheap to attain the way they did, and wildly effective.


Kes

Practical Effects - 3.jpg

Kes is a tiny little British movie set in a small coal mining town. It's about a boy, largely isolated from the other boys his age, and he finds an escape from his miserable little world of bullies and neglect in a kestrel. He adopts it and trains it.

Why I bring this up is because of the little scenes where the boy actually trains his bird. I didn't need to even look up any background on the movie to conclude that the kid had a real connection with the bird. The bird hadn't been trained by someone else and the boy hadn't been given a quick hour of training himself on how to handle the bird. He was comfortable with it in a way that can't be faked. It turns out that the boy did in fact train the bird (three of them, actually), so the connection we see is real.

I imagine what would happen if someone made this movie today, and I can't escape the idea that the kid would never have been given the bird. The production crew wouldn't trust him. The insurers would object in case the bird hurt the boy. They'd probably use some CGI to capture some shot they just couldn't do practically. And it would all create a distance between the film and the audience by comparison. Would it matter narratively? Not really, but movies are about emotional connection, and part of that equation is the audience buying the events on screen as actually happening on some level.

Having the boy actually train the bird enhances that experience that high quality fakery can't.


One More Example

One modern direction who understand getting as much in frame practically as possible is Guillermo del Toro. He loves men in suits for monsters. He loves intricate costumes and makeup effects. He's definitely not a guy who will plaster some green cloth on something, throw up his hands, and say, "We'll do it in post!"

One great example of del Toro's visual approach is near the end of Pan's Labyrinth. The step father of our main character Ophelia got a nasty cut on his face, splitting his cheek on one side. Alone, he looks in a mirror and sutures the wound shut, all in frame. It looks very real, and it's because it mostly is.

Practical Effects - 4.jpg

Well, it's mostly makeup. I could imagine another director just placing some green cloth on the actor's face and throwing the problem to the CGI folks months later. Instead, they built the outer layer of the wound with makeup and placed a small sliver of green at the center to allow the post production team to add the inside of the mouth.

It's a small effect, but it looks very real, and, combined with the actor's performance, it feels very real.

Again, it's a small effect, but it represents a wonderful combination of old school and new school effects to create an emotional resonance.


Lessons

For any filmmakers out there (I doubt it), I'd say that things in frame are better than things done in post. Think of the practical puppet creature effects in John Carpenter's The Thing versus the terrible and fake looking computer generated effects in the remake from a few years ago. The production of that remake actually did create puppet effects which were, apparently, on par with Carpenter's movie, but because the director had no idea what he was doing or how to use puppet effects, they refused to use any of it. There's a story where the director looked at a puppet which was designed to work from a specific angle, but he wanted to look at it from a different direction, so he chose the terrible CGI so he could put the camera at a different place instead of doing as he had designed it and having something that looks good.

What are some of your favorite practical effects? What about modern day uses of practical effects?

6 There's an older (bad) movie about a giant octo-squid. I remember that at the end, it hauls its bulk onto land... and then suddenly gets sluggish. To such an extent it can be killed easily.

Also a good effect, because the cephalopods really DON'T do well on land. I'd rate it better than Peter Jackson's watcher-in-the-water.

7 I understand using computer graphics for fantastical beings and futuristic cities and suchlike, but they are using CGI for ordinary backgrounds now, I swear. Like they are too lazy to do some location scouting.

Soon it will be just actors in front of green screens, followed shortly by full-on CGI with no actors.

12 I just watched Kes. Interesting little movie. I was fascinated whenever the bird was onscreen. Unfortunately, that wasn't very often. It took half the film for him to make his appearance, and then he was only seen a few times. Not really the movie's fault that it wasn't really about the bird. Just my expectation.

One other thing about the difference between then and now. The dead bird was a real dead bird. They killed a bird for that scene. No way they do that today.

Meet The PetMorons

-pettread 1.png

Long story. My Mom got dog, Doberman mix. Next thing you know she has granddaughter (my daughter that dog loved). Dog howled when granddaughter left. Now dog lives with us. Cold (north texas ha!) night Sophie sneaked up hall from laundry room to sleep in from of fireplace. She was about 11 or 12 then. She died in 1996.

So Sophie was lonely (ha!) and needed a companion. We adopt a ridgeback mix named Dottie. This is her chasing fettuccini Alfredo under dishwasher. She died in 2005. I am a better person because they were in my life.

Unfortunately this Moron didn't give us his name. But as with all pet owners we are better people because of our pets. Thank you for the submission. If you are around today let us know who you are.

The next two pictures are of my Wire Fox Terriers. Tucker (the one with the bandage) was 14 pounds of sheer combative machismo, while Monty was a more substantial and dignified gentleman. They were both adorable.

Finally, my beloved rescue Lab mixes, Dallas and Houston. They were brothers but were completely different in all ways except one - food was their number one priority. Dallas (the brindle) was the sweetest dog ever, just 100 pounds of cuddle bug. Houston (the chocolate), who was obviously part pit bull, was my best friend ever.

Thanks for the Pet Thread! -Yui

Quite the gang! Thanks for sharing.

My #3, #1 (of 4) son wanted a kitten to cuddle at night. He is now over 30, but has inherited his father's insomnia. We had no idea that the cute, playful little brown and white kitten at the shelter would become an 18 lb beast. But Klaus is a very nice kitteh and very intelligent (but autistic, like most cats.) He has some "pet" names, like "Klausdale" or "Kitler."

Halloween special! Another cat of ours, affectionately nick-named A-hole, didn't ike her bath.

I wonder how much of it is being a bit further from subsistence level, culturally speaking.

I also think it is partially do to seeing them as valued members of a household (dogs for warning against intruders and animal threats, cats against vermin.) I wonder if dogs were used as herding animals in the far east and whether that had anything to do with it. Once you put a certain amount of training into an animal to make it useful to you, it becomes much less likely that you want to eat it.

31 So, kinda on topic.

They finally did study on which were better pets...cats or dogs.

Conclusion: Dogs.

Before the uproar posts, let me tell you why.

B/c dogs make their owners get off the couch and take them for walks. And get exercise. That was it.

They also added all dogs & cats were better to have than none at all.

So you could also argue cats are better b/c you don't have to get off the couch.

33 I cant believe i have to point this out. We don't eat cats and dogs in our traditions because they eat vermin and garbage. Thats gross. Also our religion says its a big no no. Since dogs and cats are damn useful on farms theres no reason to eat garbage/vermin eaters in our society. Now they are friends. But there's more to it than "i think it'd be wrong" it'd also give you parasites.

41 I can see better now
Dottie story: We lived in a house with a patio door and sliding patio screen door. We got Dottie and she was about 6 inches tall. There was a small split in screen she could get through. So over the next 6 months as we left screen door open Dottie kept going in and out of small tear. Ending up being about tall/wide enough to push a spinet piano through.

So Dottie is barking and growling. She has a racoon of about 30 lbs (she weighed about 4 in the yard and they are fighting like day 3 at the Alamo. I proceed to separate them and the coon runs up a tree. About an hour later, more ruckuss, more blood, it is dark and I cannot see anything. I call Dottie, blood everywhere and she is smiling. Smiling like the cheshire cat, most fun she has had in here life, I am talking Las Vegas fun!. So I bring dog in house and clean up blood, none was hers. So next morning I looking out window of second story bedroom double doors. There in the fork of oak tree was dead coon. Oh crap, that is going to smell bad. I walk out on balcony and there he is, dead coon. Wife and I have coffee and I go to figure out how to get dead coon out of tree about 20' off ground. Then TADA, Rocky raises his head, he is alive, beaten and tired. I tell him Dottie is locked up and he scampers down tree, never to visit (much to Dottie's vexation) again.

43 We've had at least one dog continuously for twenty years and a season. Now, two weeks without one.

The three we've had each just walked up on us one day. I couldn't imagine going to the shelter to get one. Well, I can, but I can't imagine getting just one...!

We pet them, teach them, train them, feed them, groom or bathe them, give them shelter and territory and purpose, control their reproductivity, chip them, vaccinate them, tend them when sick, and then deal with so much when they're dying... no small cost of material and peoplepower.

When Gimli walked up and adopted us, we took on all that with a groan, but happily, immediately. We're not quite in the same shape as we were then...

Hard to imagine going to get a dog...

However, if the Lord of Pets throws another good one at us, I suppose...

46 Two weeks ago I had granddog (keep falling asleep when PetThread comes around) for a few days. Newest grandson is wonderful, but can't get him away from other grandparents, so my consolation prize is the puppy. Went to a family wedding and son put puppy in the crate. We argued a bit because I turned back from one of my walks when her howling got so loud I was worried, but she was put in the crate with my old dog and cat for company.

Puppy managed to get out of the crate and greeted me coming home early in the front window. Our forensic examination determined that she picked up the sides of the crate and slithered out. Wait a minute, that's not the cat in the window. It was funny, but I am still picking pieces of the rug she ate from the crate out of the rest of the house.

Good thing I went home early with eldest grandson. Who knows what havoc she could have wrought.

55 33 I cant believe i have to point this out. We don't eat cats and dogs in our traditions because they eat vermin and garbage. Thats gross. Also our religion says its a big no no. Since dogs and cats are damn useful on farms theres no reason to eat garbage/vermin eaters in our society. Now they are friends. But there's more to it than "i think it'd be wrong" it'd also give you parasites.

I have heard before that Ridgebacks have a pretty strong drive when it comes to critters.

Dogs seem to have an instinct when it comes to these kinds of things that transcends experience. Ajax is a Australian Cattle dog who has never seen a cow or sheep. However, when he about 6 or so, he was staying at my parents. They went out to do something an did not notice when he slipped out while they were leaving the garage. They were gone for about two hours.

This is in a suburban neighborhood. A lot of kids usually run through my parents yard. When my parents returned after a couple hours, they found Ajax sitting proudly in the middle of the yard, and not a kid in sight. The neighbors related that he had chased the kids every time they got close to the yard, but never once they were beyond the yard. He evidently did not bite a one, just chased them and nipped at their heels to get them moving.

71 For the past nine months or so, my cat has been licking a spot on her back. It's not bare... but it's getting there.

The vet said "fish oil," but that's not doing anything. I've tried an expensive cream, but that... did nothing.

The place she licks is usually associated with allergies; I don't think it's her food, so my guess is "seasonal allergies." She's not under stress, so I don't think it's that.

Any ideas? I don't want to put her in the cone, since she gets super depressed when it's on; as for a sweater... no. She won't got for that either.

77 Neighbor has an old jack russell (turning cranky in her old age) and got another to keep the family dog tradition going. Unfortunately, the newer one ran out the door and bit 3yo grandson when he was trying to get into his carseat. Daughter is used to dogs, so didn't panic, but made it clear that they couldn't let dog run loose if he was going to pull that nonsense. Hope it works out, but I am not a terrier fan overall.

sometimes pets will do that from anxiety. Also, do you use plastic or ceramic bowls for food and water? That sometimes triggers allergic reactions in pets. Use glass if you can. For anxiety - try regular sustained active play sessions. See if that helps.

I have 2 Bengal cats, Ava was 10, Reagan is 8. I noticed over maybe the past two months Ava was losing weight. I must've been in denial, I attributed it to her getting older.

Long story short, she either had cancer or IBD and also possible bowel obstruction. She had some secondary problems in her blood work also. Three home vet visits, steroids, antibiotics, anti nausea meds, sub q fluids. She didn't respond to the treatment.
She lost a half pound in her last week and she was eating.

We gave her a fighting chance but it wasn't enough, the vet yesterday told me we were doing the right thing.

She also caught a mouse when she was coming off the anesthesia Monday. I was shocked. She was tough.

1. I actually started the apple cider vinegar and water, but didn't follow through.

2. She's using stainless steel bowls. More play might be the answer. She's stopped coming upstairs at night, which makes me wonder if something is wandering around the yard that's upsetting her. I've sprayed some anti-anxiety stuff where she hangs out.

I got one that's going down fast, too, CaliGirl, although not as fast as I thought. Stunned he made it cross country and clearly approves of his new home, still gets off the bed at night and finds one of his pookies (fave toy, all his life) and demands play. But I don't think he'll make it to Christmas, maybe not even Thanksgiving. They're tough critters and we know going in that we'll be on the wrong side of goodbye. So hard to let them go, though.

I'll be sad when he's gone. While he's here, we just go business as usual. I just hope he goes on his own. He'd rather have me shoot him than take him to the vet, so I'm not doing that. And I'm 2000 miles away from any people doc who might help me ease his transition on my own, as I did once before.

I don't think they understand language that well. When I had a cat, it would play this game. I'd be reading something in bed, and it would crouch, and start wiggling its behind in order to pounce. I'd shout, "No! No!" and it would attack, I brought up my forearm to shield myself, and it would tap it with its front paws and run away.

There was a huge Ash outside my bedroom window it was over 25 years old. 5 stories high and almost as wide. I loved it. It got that Ash disease & had to come down. People actually hugged it good-bye. I was lucky enough to get a big chunk of it.

But I used to lay in bed and watch the squirrels play in it with their babies. And birds with their nests and young uns. It was so alive. And in fall it filled my windows with blazing red, orange, and the colors in between. It was glorious.

Do a search for a vet that does home visits. I live in horse country so the vets come to me. They do surgery and have X-rays and ultrasound machines in their big trucks. Some vets will do housecalls for euthanasia.

I think some vets will do it at your home even if they don't have a mobile clinic.

Cat does the same with me with the underarm thing. Maybe to clean his eyes, I don't know.

My kitty is an older female Maine Coon that I inherited from my father several years ago. She's a rooster cat. She grew up with him going to dialysis for the early shifts.

She insists upon the social ritual of refilling her food bowl every morning before sunrise. It doesn't matter if I refresh her food and water before bed.

I yowl at her from bed when I don't wanna get up, and she looks at me like she doesn't give a shit.

Seeing the birds reminded me of a pair of 'keets we had years ago. I got to name them and they were called Maggie and Drumstick. People, mostly women, were horrified about naming a bird Drumstick but I thought it was hilarious. (I still do.) Those two lived 3 times the average span for parakeets, so I guess the name didn't cause any stress.

Oh, I expect we won't. Our hearts are still too heavy to think about getting another pup (we already took in my mother's Yorkie a couple years ago, so we're not pup-free).

Our inclination is toward getting another golden retriever puppy, for several reasons. First, they're such sweethearts, and so totally adorable as puppies. Second, to maximize the amount of time we have with him.

But let me think about getting a rescue dog. The problem here is that the pound is full of pit bulls (left by Marines going on deployment, I expect), and we're simply not pit bull people.

A friend just stopped by for an hour coffee visit and from the start Lydia's all "meyow meyOWWW" and licking her ass ferociously, bounding around and climbing on the coffee table (where of course she's not allowed) knocking things over and getting hairs in the snacks.

Finally I barked "Grandma! Will you STOP BEING A BRAT and GET BACK IN YOUR CRATE", and she did, even though of course she got all pouty about it. That's when the cat started acting up.

And not just our lives. We had friends take care of him when I was in the hospital last month. Just to give him a run in the back yard and feed him. Our friends fell in love with him which took about 5 seconds. (He is a love bug.) They took him home to play with their 10 month old Rotty, who is about four times Prince's size. Those two romped together for hours then fell asleep cuddled up. I got the impression they would not have minded if we were away a bit longer. :-)

You wouldn't know it to look at her, because she's a blue-eyed blonde with an American accent, but she's a missionary kid who grew up in the South Pacific. She took one look at the picture and calmly said, "Good question. I'd probably eat both of them." And she went on her merry way, leaving the PETA twerp totally dumbfounded.

191 Ben Had, Be careful about doxies. We had one for 15 years as our family pet growing up. They will attempt to eat you out of house and home (no self control at all) and find a permanent place in your heart. We still talk about her 40 years after she passed.

Have you looked outside your local area & shelters? Sometimes they will transfer a dog/cat from a shelter to a person outta state. Plane and everything. You pay though, iirc. I was really surprised by it...TV show years ago. Or if a few hundred miles, you could do the drive.

Sorry if you already did all this, just offering idea. The internet makes it really easy to look at all the shelters in the country.

I just know after typing all this you have already done it.

Max's predecessor was the late, much beloved Bud. Although everyone thought he was named for the movie, we had actually named him that before the movie came out.

We saw the movie back when, but cannot bear to watch it now. Air Bud was a ringer for our Bud too.

You'd have to know my family. They'd be like 'oh yea, pull the plug.' I don't know why I'm laughing but it's true. Maybe because of our various ties with medicine. I just hope and pray there's a cure before I get to that age. Parents don't have, but one grandparent did.

That is a Vancouver City transit bus, owned by a Provincial government entity, the B.C. Transit Corporation (or some variant thereof; it changes names periodically, as it gets reorganized from one cluster-fuck to another). It's also an electric bus; those diagonal wires you see go up to trailing poles mounted on the vehicle's roof, and those pole carry shoes which pick up current from overhead power lines. Those electric buses can scat pretty good, way faster than their Diesel counterparts. I knew a guy who drove them.
Vancouver is Moonbat Central, hence the PETA ad.

206 The big problem for me with PETA and all the other offshoots is that so few of them have pets or deal with them on a long-term basis. For most of us, the dog or cat who lives with us and is a part of our lives is a long-term commitment. I am darned sure that most of the sanctimonious creeps we all know and despise have never lived the long-term commitment of a pet.

Yeah, my rant is starting early about all the college kids who talk about how much they love their pets and every year the nice animals are abandoned.

She answers me sometimes and we have quite the chat.

Noodle is getting up there in age. The ASPCA says the average lifespan for an indoor cat is 13 -17 years, so she's in the middle there. She overnights in the basement where her litter box is and the other morning she sat at the bottom of the stairs, meowing. I went halfway down and asked her if she was feeling kind of stiff and did she want me to come and get her and she just blinked at me. ("Duh." ) So I carried her upstairs for breakfast and right afterwards she hops on the back of the wing chair in the family room as agile as you please. ???I

Totally played.

I'm so sorry Caligirl. It was 2005 when I lost my most favored feline, who live to be 21 years old, and was the best mouser I've ever seen.

I could go on for pages with tales of her. Her name was "Boo-boo", sort of silly, but naming her that is a story in itself. She would really respond as I kitten when I made a "booo-boooo-boooo" sound while tickling her belly.

If there is truly a heaven, when I cross over, I will be able to call "Boo-boo?" and her meow in response once again.

Saturday Gardening Thread: Lookin' a little seedy [KT]

rraccoon.jpg

Where did that corn go?

Hello, gardeners and friends of gardeners. Today's pre-Thanksgiving thread was partly inspired, appropriately, by last week's Food Thread. It featured some foods with seeds, like Avocados. If you have an avocado tree, you may want to check out the key to ripening avocados from The Deplorable Jay Guevara. Leave a piece of stem.

I have a question for the Food Thread: I'm still somewhat confused about whether or not refrigeration messes up further ripening of avocados. If so, at what temperature?

If you are thinking about growing an avocado tree, let us know. Not a frivolous undertaking.

Artisanal'ette presented recipes in the main post and also in a comment for pumpkin and sunflower seeds. She asked a question about the harvest season of those seeds. This set me off on the subjects of naked pumpkin seeds and seeds for little birds. More fun stuff below the fold.

Pumpkins with Naked Seeds

Artisanal'ette, some pumpkin seeds can be harvested now. Others may have already sprouted inside the pumpkins. There is a vast array of pumpkins in the world. They are basically squashes, from three different species, that someone decided to call "pumpkins".

All pumpkin and squash seeds are edible, but most have a tough hull. Some are meatier than others. Still, you can toast the seeds with hulls and either remove the hulls with your teeth or eat them hull and all. But the seeds Artisanal'ette bought probably came from a naked-seeded pumpkin.

Here is a nice summary on How to grow pepitas. Below, a photo of a traditional Styrian pumpkin with naked seeds.

pumpkint jpg.jpg

Territorial Seed now offers a naked-seeded pumpkin that looks like a "normal" orange pumpkin and that can be used in pies. Though their favorite in the pie category is 'Winter Luxury', which has netted skin. Going traditional this year at Thanksgiving? Here's how to make a Traditional 18th Century Pumpkin Pie from George Washington's Mount Vernon. No eggs?

Growing Sunflowers for Seeds

It may be a little late to harvest sunflower seeds for munching in much of the country unless you are a bird. Because the birds (or other critters) will already have stripped the seeds from the plants. But a lot of people leave some flowers to go to seed in the garden, like the
Maximilian Sunflowers
and other perennial types we have previously discussed. Note: Pollen-free varieties may not produce seeds.

If you want sunflower seeds for human consumption, start with a cultivar bred for that purpose. The traditional ones are very tall with huge heads. Really fun for kids. Make a fort. But this summer I saw vast fields of very short sunflowers in the Sacramento delta (where I expected to see rice). The petals were already falling off.

Here is a nice summary on growing and harvesting sunflowers for seed and on making suet cakes for birds.

harvesting-sunflowers-24.jpg

More flower seeds for little birds

When we did the post on Illiniwek's mystery pond flower, I don't think we noted that little birds pick over the seed heads in winter. You might like to review the post if you are thinking of planting some hybrid Heleniums in your garden. But don't comment on old threads.

We've seen photos of butterflies on Illiniwek's wild Helenium flowers. Now it's time for the little birds to show up.

The helenium have given me a second bloom. I'm guessing some seed fell and as the pond level dropped it found a new place, which then bloomed later. Here is the browned first bloom ... really brown already.

brown helenium.jpg

Then these came along, and are still blooming
the darker brown behind them are the old helenium. they ring most of the pond except where the cattails crowded them out.

cattail h.jpg

I see bird habitat there.

Safflower

JTB mentioned putting out safflower seed for little birds. It is a commercial crop around here, to make Safflower oil. There are apparently types high in monounsaturates and others high in polyunsaturates. I didn't know.

The plants that are grown around here aren't too tall, but are spiny and miserable. You can buy garden types with varying degrees of thorniness. 'Zanzibar' is supposed to be almost thornless. The Cherry Gal sells seed of a thorny type for seed (requires a long season). She notes that dye from the petals are the original source of the term, "red tape".

Thornless safflowers apparently produce fewer seeds than thorny types, though work is being done to develop the plant as a forage crop. It is also popular in Europe as a cut flower, exported from Africa

Carthamus_D03o.jpg

Here are some more fun facts about safflower.

Safflower petals are sometimes used as a substitute for saffron. But don't go too wild with this herb. Plant extracts have adverse effects on mouse testicular tissue. Human testing has not been done.

Photos by the Horde and Friends

This fascinating photo is from GeoffB:

We always have hordes of English sparrows at our bird feeder but in the summer of 2014 we had an unusual one. A full albino.

It was hard to get pictures as the feeder is right outside the sliding door and any movement inside causes the birds to fly away. This one best shows the albino sparrow. Taken through the vertical blinds and door glass.

The photo below is the last bouquet of the year from my cousin's miniature rose bush. She's the cousin with the geraniums in her basement for the winter.

merns rose.jpg

Don't forget to take a look a Don's new orchids. Or his other plant photos.

Tolumnia-1-768x469.jpg

Gardens of The Horde

I harvested a little watermelon this week that grew from a volunteer seed in our front yard. The plant was already dead. The fruit was not bad, surprisingly.

Anything going on in your garden?

Have a great Thanksgiving week.

2 Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life.
It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.

9 Okay, two gardening questions came up during the week for me.

A bored grandkid took the little balls a cactus (green stem reddish ball on top) and there were little red balls growing on the thing. The problem is that now I have fruit flies. Will the wounds heal up, or should I just dump the thing. I was so proud of myself that it has lasted this long, but I don't want the fruit flies from the sweetness in the cactus itself.

Second, anyone else get the 'folk wisdom' from a natural gardener that you plant stuff in prime numbers. My dad would plant anything and make it grow by stomping it in the ground. Nothing fancy as far as soil, etc., just 'grow dammit' -- and they did. He insisted on stuff being done by prime number, 1,5,7,11 for a hedge or annuals. Anybody else hear this folklore?

I think artistically there's something to be said for growing in odd numbers. Two of something looks contrived, while three seems esthetically more natural and pleasing.

The wounds should heal. Try increasing the air flow around the plant. Maybe put a fan on it. Check to see if the fruit flies laid eggs. If so, kill them.

About the prime numbers thing, it may be to make plantings more interesting to the eye.

24 @12: "About the prime numbers thing, it may be to make plantings more interesting to the eye."

Subconsciously, your mind tends to divide even numbered groups like four through twenty into halves, and imbalances and between those two subgroups become naggingly obvious.

These are the kind of trees you grind up and turn into toilet paper, not ornamental Christmas trees. Not sure if that makes a difference. I'm going to talk to the county extension agent, I think.

For buying them, I mean. They're pretty much impossible to find any other time.

28 It's time to trim some trees around here. We have some dead pine trees and a cypress tree that needs to be cut down.

We also need to trim the eucalyptus trees of some branches that may fall and clean up the redwood trees.

The leaves on the grapes have changed colors and it looks pretty.

I will get some pictures. The vineyards across the road are even prettier.

That's as fall as we get around here.

29 If you are thinking about growing an avocado tree, let us know. Not a frivolous undertaking.

We weren't, but my daughter, who lived in a dark apartment in Boston at the time, decided to grow one from a pit. We christened it the Grandplant. It was a couple of years old when she moved back down to NoVa, and had the physique you'd expect given it's light-starved infancy. We put it on our deck, which gets lots of sun, and it shot up from 3' to 9' before we topped it and moved it inside into our sun room for the winter. It started putting out limbs last winter, expanded them this summer, and is now comfortably (for it) ensconced in the sun room again.

I've asked for a plan as to it's future, since it's outgrowing even the cathedral ceiling in the SR, but thus far, it's lots of handwaving and pleas for it's continued survival. Sigh.

No, the pomegranates are just in our small orchard area near the chicken coop. We planted a bunch a fruit trees 2 years ago. We have Asian pears, Granny Smith apples, cherry trees, peach, plum, nectarines and figs, pomegranates.

The things we grow commercially are head lettuce, red and green leaf, red and green cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, napa/bok choy, cilantro, spinach, strawberries, blackberries, and during the summer,zucchini, yellow straight and crook neck squash, bell peppers, jalapenos, red fresno chilis, poblano, anaheim chilis. We also grow hay during the winter too. I think alfalfa. I could be wrong about the hay.

47 speaking of bird habitat, I'm thinkin' a lot of raccoon have to "go" to bring back more turkeys and doves and quail. We have way too many coons, and hunting has declined ... pelts not worth much. Just 10 years ago I'd hear groups of turkeys most mornings, rarely even catch a couple on the trail cams now. A few quail, haven't seen a pheasant in years.

Shotgun this weekend for deer ... my friend had some a few feet from him but was waiting for something bigger. A couple ten points have been around ... two separate shots next door may have gotten one or both. The three counties here are called "the golden triangle" since they "harvest" so many nice bucks here.

One little food plot has some dried up corn ... when I walk through I hear the little birds before I see them as they rattle the dry leaves. Just one of those quiet little joys of walks in the country.

True. I was at grocery store last night and they had little containers of pomegrante seeds. I wanted to by some, but wasn't sure what to do with them. Can you eat them like that...or do they need sugar. Yes, I'm clueless about food...yes, you can judge me.

But any help would be appreciated. I do like the pomegrante juice, but they usually mix with sweeter juices. So I imagine it is sour. Seeds I know nothing about.

52 Question: Can sunflowers, appropriate for birds to eat from, be grown in containers? Even if it's one plant per container?

Also, should the stalks be supported, like tall tomato plants?

I mentioned we will only be container gardening next season but I like the idea of a few sunflower plants for the song birds.

If I were to delve into artistic speak, say you put two candles on a dining room table. No one would notice. One would look just silly. Put three on the table and you create a certain tension that would make someone stop and ponder for a moment.

I always plant in odd numbers. A pair of something looks too formal. You want your landscape to be something that stops people in their tracks, so they can appreciate the natural appearing beauty. Not see two of this, two of that, as if your landscape was waiting to loaded aboard Noah's Ark. Odd numbers create that tension that says 'natural'.

Those suckers can mess up a good nights sleep. They've figured out how to open the 'buggies' that the trash services use in our area. Usually with a loud thud. Then the racket while they drop in, root around, then climb back out. I figured out that drilling a hole through the top and base then inserting a screwdriver through it would keep them out. Approach trash, pull out screwdriver, open lid, toss, push screwdriver back in. So far, so good for the past six months.

I can tell you this, as I grow bentgrass, it is the penultimate grass that you can walk barefoot on. My 'velvet bentgrass' can achieve blade counts in the 50,000 blades per square inch territory. That's not a misprint. It grows left, it grows right, it stitches itself into this incredible mat.

It's like gravity no longer exists as you walk.

What a great place you have there with the shooting and the TP trees. That's gonna be a lot of fun.

We were just at the coast with some other couples, and one guy is a long range shooter. Each day he'd wear a politically incorrect t-shirt with some message like "Black Powder Matters". Good folks.

They are devilishly smart little creatures. I remember finding lots of little muddy footprints on the edge tiles of my parents swimming pool in the mornings. They weren't just drinking or cleaning themselves, but washing scavenged bits of food before eating too.

97 Been raking all month, but we're nearly done. Only the apple trees are still hanging on to their...

Leaves, leaves, and more leaves!

(At least we don't have 100s of pounds of apples to pick up as well--like last year. And no 'coons hanging around to eat them!)

It's sunny out, not too windy. Maybe better get off my butt and finish the yardwork, lol.

The indoor poblano has one pepper on it and a few more blooms coming on. I have a soft little paintbrush to dab the pollen around--looks like it's working!

Can't believe the Holidays are nearly upon us. Again. Already.

I need to dig out the lights. Been saying that to myself for a month, thinking to put them up while it's nice out instead of doing it in 30-40 degree temps. And so it goes.

Thanks for the threads, KT.

Happy gardening, everyone.

99 Weasel, it is kind of important to know what sort of trees they are, and what you site index is--the suitability for trees your site has due to soil, water, and sun exposure. That you can get from the county extension agent.

At about 10 years or so, or when the trees start touching you want to look into "pre-commercial" thinning. If your trees get to closely packed for their size they get stunted and may never recover.
If you have fir or one of the wood type pines, you may want to look into limbing up the trees--it is called side pruning--so that keeps the knots really small in the main trunk and you get a better price for your logs when you sell them to the mill. It also lets you walk in among them without getting a face full of branch every other step.

When your trees get older and they close canopy a lot of the underbrush and the critters will go elsewhere, so you may be interested in being extra aggressive in thinning to make sure you have empty spaces for underbrush and critters.

Oh, and if you are shooting, make sure you don't shoot trees going to the mill. Some mills if they find one bit of metal, they don't pay you for that log and they start looking at your logs with suspicion since they can break a saw blade that way.

Thanks Kindltot- these are loblolly pines at about year 7. I'm planning to meet with the county extension agent this winter. Good tip on the shooting, but I'm planning to clear a few acres for an actual range with a berm.

Posted by: Weasel at November 18, 2017 03:19 PM (Sfs6o)

101 Oh, they look like Ponderosas.

I don't think they will canopy over like Douglas Fir and Hemlock, so you will have better hunting in those groves.

Another thing to look into is what is called Special Forest products, and that is everything from pine straw to mushrooms to ginseng. It is a bit of extra cash while you are waiting for your trees to mature.

Something else about the 'velvet bentgrass' I mentioned above. I've seen it labeled as an 'invasive species' by the EPA and I can no longer find a vendor selling it. I know that Trump uses it at his signature golf courses in New Jersey. So he's shit out of luck re-seeding with it.

So you have this grass with incredible characteristics, perfect for golf courses, or even home outside play areas, that the EPA has effectively banned.

It's grass, it grows, it spreads at maybe an inch a year, it's not creeping through someones window while they sleep at night, strangling them.

But this is how you get Trump.

There's probably a million stories of government overreach in the past two decades. This is just one.

I think you could plant most any kind of ornamental sunflower (except the pollen-free ones) to attract little birds. There are some dwarfs.

The big sunflowers are kind of ungainly for an earthbox. You might also consider some of the other flowers birds use for seed in winter. I can include a basic list for songbirds next week.

Sunflower seed hulls inhibit the growth of many other plants. Something to consider in the garden.

105 JTB,

The survival of your rosemary over winter in Northern Virginia may depend on the cultivar.

Also, you will want to keep it on the dry side during the winter, maybe somewhere close to the house, to give it the best chance for survival.

106 52,
"Question: Can sunflowers, appropriate for birds to eat from, be grown in containers? Even if it's one plant per container?


Also, should the stalks be supported, like tall tomato plants?


I mentioned we will only be container gardening next season but I like the idea of a few sunflower plants for the song birds.
"
Posted by: JTB at November 18, 2017 02:04 PM (V+03K)



I don't see why not as long as they can grow tall. We grow tomatoes, herbs, and flowers in containers and all do fine. Even have sunflowers that start from the birdseed that gets scattered but I pull them when I find them as they are not what was planted in the pot.

I haven't seen a pheasant for years out here, either. Never thought to connect that to less hunting of bird egg eaters. Here, that might be coyotes. Or protected kit foxes. Maybe rats. Eeew.

108 I'm musing on what to say in my "Treasure Valley of Idaho report" other than : Leaves.

The last vegetable garden cleanup was last weekend, chopping down the asparagus forest. Now we're focused on mostly leaves. The 4 sweet gums have finished dropping; ditto Eric the Half-a-Maple, and the oak. I think the only trees still with leaves are Jupiter the Silver Maple, and the 4 Damned Sycamores. (If that's not their official name, it *should* be.) It's supposed to be dry tomorrow, so we'll see if we can't get more of the burnable oak and sycamore leaves collected up. Lots of rainy days predicted for Thanksgiving week.

I did trim all the flowers off our 3 new mums. I cut all the dead leaves off the 2 mini daylilies out front. And I pulled most of the dead leaves off the large daylily out back - it has some little green leaves down inside, so I wanted to leave some parts of the plant there to protect those. I can always pull more of the dead leaves off in spring.

Siberian Iris are supposed to be cut down to 1-2" after all their leaves die, so I did cut down the 3 clumps behind the kitchen. I think there are 5 clumps on the south side, and at least 8 out front, so this will be an ongoing project! The Calamagrostis bunchgrass clumps are supposed to be trimmed down in late winter, before the new shoots come up, so that can wait a few months.

(On a side note, are there Morons and 'ettes who know who Al Stewart is? We've been listening to his music - um, might be 30 or more years now... He did a concert last Sunday night in Boise, and husband ponied up extra so we could get "Meet and Greet" tickets - about 20 of us got to shake his hand, chat for a bit, and get his autograph, then sit front and center for the concert. A wonderful evening!!)

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, and may you always have much to be thankful for!

109 CaliGirl, back when I lived in Moorhead MN a friend who farmed stopped by. It was harvest time. Michigan had a wet fall that ruined their edible dry bean crop. My friend also grew them. He had a farm truck full. He said, "I thought you would want to see a load of beans worth more than the truck." It was a newer truck, too.

110 yeah KT, some here blame the turkey reduction on increase in bobcats, which they now started hunting in limited numbers. But there are way more raccoons. We have some coyotes also ... I see them occasionally in the day. No rats fortunately. At least the raccoon are cute when they're little.

Thread before the Gardening Thread: The Gods of the Market Place [KT]

Serving your mid-day open thread needs

mktplc.jpg

The Forum is connected to the Marketplace, etc.

Happy Saturday, Horde! What a week. It's been kinda of hard for me to keep up with the latest approved opinions from our Gods of the Marketplace. The ground seems to be shifting under some of them. In the midst of all this, a troll-type guy in another venue accidentally reminded me of the video in which Bill Whittle recited Kipling's poem, The Gods of the Copy Book Headings. You may have seen it. It's below the fold if you would like to watch it again.

When Whittle re-worked Kipling's poem for modern ears, he replaced "Gods of the Market Place" with "Gods of the Here and the Now". That phrase takes on added meaning for me this week, with all the transitory moral posturing that has been going on. Prostration to each new pronouncement is still expected, it seems.

What statement from the Mount Olympus network surprised you the most this week?

Kipling's "Gods of the Copybook Headings" also became Whittle's "Gods of Wisdom and Virtue" for the purposes of the video. Speaking of Wisdom and Virtue, Maggie's Farm linked a piece on A Europe We Can Believe In. It includes 36 conservative tenets and is signed by a number of European intellectuals. I can hear the howls from the Gods of the Here and the Now. But it included some interesting ideas:

Paradoxically, Europe's multicultural enterprise, which denies the Christian roots of Europe, trades on the Christian ideal of universal charity in an exaggerated and unsustainable form. It requires from the European peoples a saintly degree of self-abnegation. We are to affirm the very colonization of our homelands and the demise of our culture as Europe's great twenty-first century glory--a collective act of self-sacrifice for the sake of some new global community of peace and prosperity that is being born. . .

There is a great deal of bad faith in this thinking. Most in our governing classes doubtless presume the superiority of European culture--which must not be affirmed in public in ways that might offend immigrants. Given that superiority, they think that assimilation will happen naturally, and quickly. In an ironic echo of the imperialist thinking of old, Europe's governing classes presume that, somehow, by the laws of nature or of history, 'they' will necessarily become like 'us'--and it is inconceivable that the reverse might be true.

This was followed by a different point further down the page:

Only empires are multicultural.

Take a look. What do you think?

Hope you have a great pre-Thanksgiving weekend. Doing anything interesting?

The holidays for me are about survival, which gets harder to justify each year.

I don't like the shortcut of calling harassment of a sexual nature 'Sexual Harassment'. It blurs the meaning.

It either is, or is not, harassment of a sexual nature. Obviously you can harass someone without it being of a sexual nature. Bag of dog poop, porch, ignite. Later, rinse, repeat.

Run what Franken did through that filter and it's obvious that photograph, taken on the plane ride home, was the culmination of repeated pattern of harassment of a sexual nature. He's a pig, unworthy of the title of Senator.

71 "Doing anything interesting?". Yeah I'm recovering from the Mohs surgery from hades. Ok ok i get that relatively speaking it is a minor procedure and so many others are so much worse off, including some in my personal network.

But I had expected a repeat of the first time I had it done: one cut, and I was clear. I guess I was just lucky that first time. Because of the extent of the cutting they did and the location, I had to get a plastic surgeon to stitch me up. Now I have a shiner and wear dark glasses everywhere. I know women who get their eyelids did go through this but this was not a vanity procedure and I reserve the right to kvetch...yada yada yada.

I have only one thing to say in closing: Morons, please stay current with your six month dermatologist visits if you have any history of skin cancer. I'm not even going to proselytize against sun bathing, just be reasonable about it. But those tanning booths are deadly.

73 Most in our governing classes doubtless presume the superiority of European culture--which must not be affirmed in public in ways that might offend immigrants. Given that superiority, they think that assimilation will happen naturally, and quickly. In an ironic echo of the imperialist thinking of old, Europe's governing classes presume that, somehow, by the laws of nature or of history, 'they' will necessarily become like 'us'--and it is inconceivable that the reverse might be true.

========

I don't give the "governing classes" that much credit. They want to destroy the existing culture, so they import a hostile culture as a means to that end, and use emotional blackmail in order to trick their own people into being submissive and putting up with it.

Feminist writer Kate Harding wrote in the Washington Post that she doesn't think Sen. Al Franken should resign over sexual assault allegations because he is a Democrat.

Harding, the author of "Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump's America" admitted that having Democratic abusers resign would be harmful to her own political goals, and thus those sexual assaulters and harassers should be forgiven. Franken is accused of forcibly kissing a woman and there is a photo of him groping her while she is sleeping.

This is like wimpy Republicans thinking "If the public sees how mean the Dems are in attacking me, and they see what a gentleman I am by smiling and not responding, they will side with me and vote for me".

No. You admonish Europeans to downplay their own culture, and encourage the immigrants to have a chip on their shoulder, as if they've been wronged in some way, of course there will be no "assimilation".

===========================

One and a half hours? That's terrible! Who can eat Thanksgiving dinner over a lunch break? Awful.

136 Harding, the author of "Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump's America" admitted that having Democratic abusers resign would be harmful to her own political goals, and thus those sexual assaulters and harassers should be forgiven. Franken is accused of forcibly kissing a woman and there is a photo of him groping her while she is sleeping.

151 " Brattleboro would rather have the economy grow at 1% with a Presdent of Color rather then 4% with that H8ter Trump !!"

It is very useful to understand exactly why this is so, and to do that we must understand the purpose of economic growth. Economic growth does NOT primarily benefit the Elites; they have already got it made, they are already in control. In fact, by creating more wealth and empowering new persons and groups, economic growth can threaten their control.

Economic growth always primarily benefits those who need jobs, those who are up and coming, those who are young and are looking for work, and those who have a bit of ambition and who are looking forward to starting some new entrepreneurial enterprise - perhaps a new restaurant, perhaps their own firm. THESE are the people who need economic growth to flourish, and the elites have no use for them.

THAT is why a policy of economic growth does more for both the poor and the middle classes than any liberal policy ever devised can possibly do.

And the Elites hate it, and the Elites have always hated it.

Just for the record, Leean Tweeden was a civilian entertainer when that photo was taken. I don't think the photo itself is proof of groping; it's clearly a "gag" photo, with him mugging for the camera, but given the history of petty sexual harassment perpetrated by him against Tweeden, it's also clearly disturbing. Posing the photo itself could be considered an act of harassment in this instance, given the history.

Many women simply don't think things out. They're told that Republican conservatives hate women because they believe in traditional family values.

Many liberal women don't look at the Big Picture and see that women who live in traditional families and have a stable marriage have better lives and emotionally healthier children.

They just rely on Traditional Values= Republican = Bad, and let The View, etc. tell them what to think. It's easier that way.

We don't know if he actually grabbed her or not. The photo isn't sure one way or the other, and who knows (as President Trump says) where he put his hands after that photo was taken.

But it doesn't really matter. That picture even if he wasn't touching her would get you fired from of 99 out of 100 jobs. Not to mention the nasty tongue kiss story, and the stalking story.

I don't believe stories just because they're told. A bare accusation is not enough. But a bare accusation plus the photo plus an admission? Now I'll buy what people say about him, yeah. Now he has to give some kind of compelling evidence that they aren't true.

The PC Elite have been rejected, but like Weinstein and Franken, they "persist". The war against the West has been coordinated ... the PC left keep grabbing us, trying to stick their PC tongue down our throat and demand we accept their alien probing. But they claim rape if we stand up to them, or even try to speak on "their" campuses.

And as Franken did to his victim, even when fully rejected, he tries to ridicule and demonize the victim while we are sleeping (as America has been, mostly, for the last 50 years). Now we are deemed deplorable and racist, worthy of punching, if we don't accept the Franken Forked Tongue. Bite it Off next time.

Anyway one evening I witnessed another hostess calling out, she took it like she was disappointed but if she really couldn't make it in she would take the shift herself,. After she got off the phone the names were flying and took it that woman's days as a employee were done or numbered.

I stopped the regular check-ups because I got sick of it. (I had to go every three months due to a melanoma.) The basal cell carcinoma that wasn't detected until last month grew to such an extent that they had to take a piece of skin the size of a quarter off my forehead. (The lesion itself pre-surgery looked about the size of a grain of wild rice.)

I usually don't like to post about medical issues. I'm doing this because it seems a lot of people dismiss the skin cancer reality, as did I, even having a case history - and it really is nothing to play with. It always seems to behave way off the template, too.

244 "Multiculturalism" commits the Odd Couple fallacy. Different nations can appreciate aspects of each others' culture, some of one's citizens can be friendly with citizens of the other. That does not mean it's a good idea to force them to live together.

And of course there's different types of multiculturalism. African Anglicans have a different culture than we do. If we must be multicultural, they would be preferable to machete wielding Somalis. Being more selective about immigration is also being multicultural.

And I still it's stupid that liberals think multiculturalism is a moral obligation (like reporting a crime). It's an aesthetic preference along the lines of preferring one flavor of ice cream over another. It can't be pushed on everybody.

256 The persistent problem with churches is that they always get infested with virtue signallers too, ESPECIALLY the liberal protestant churches these days. (ok, the reformed jewish movement too)

meaning that a goodly number - in some churches I've seen, I would even say most - aren't there because they believe in any particular thing, they're just there so other people can see them being there, and that makes them feel good about themselves. The only good thing about SJWism is that as it grows, these types are giving up on Christianity as a vent for their warped self expression and just moving into pure SJW-dom full time. And the true Christian Church is far better off without them.

Sure. If you're wearing a t-shirt and shorts. Which I doubt people in Alaska or the upper Midwest do much in the winter. When you're bundled up, and not much apart from your eyes and maybe your cheeks are showing, the UV you get is de minimis.

266 Grammie, that sounds discouraging. I wonder if something can be done to wake up this church? I will pray for your husband and the congregation.

Our church is kind, friendly, encouraging, giving, humble, fun, smart, and sweet. They are very prayer-centered, seeking God's guidance in everything we do.

I guess you know that not all churches are like the one your husband serves. I sure hope they begin to learn from him and develop a healthy habit of gratitude.

I don't go to church regularly like I used to growing up. My husband is catholic and I'm a Protestant. But when we leave mass we shake the priests hand and say thank you, nice to see you. At my mother's church I compliment the pastor and say thank you, great sermon, etc.

This is the last thing I'll say on the subject:

After the grueling day of getting skin cut off in installments, the doc told me he was going to send me to the plastic surgeon to get stitched up. I just wanted to get out of there, I was like: Can't you just stitch me up so I can go home?

A: No, because of the location of the wound, if it's improperly closed you may end up with a permanently skewed eyebrow.

I said, OK then. With everything else going on in my life, looking in the mirror to see a perma-raised eyebrow just may be the thing that will push me over the edge.

286 Hearing Grannie talk about her congregants in Wisconsin, I'm reminded of my dear departed german grandparents from Milwaukee. And when I say German - grandma Irma was born in Milwaukee, but didn't learn to speak English until she was 9, when WW1 started and speaking German went out of fashion here in the states. Her dad had snuck over to the states by hiding in a coal barge of a freighter back in the 1880's. (so I guess I'm descended from an illegal alien)

While deep down they were decent, they were also constantly critical of everyone around them and themselves, if they talked at all. (theirs was not what you would call a happy house) You could tell when they were happy with something you did when they didn't say anything, and if they were really overjoyed they would look in your direction and kind of grunt a little bit. I remember when I was a kid that the first time I ever saw my grandmother acting truly happy was after grandpa had died. (even though to be fair she was usually the instigator of most of the arguments)

And if you're in a congregation of people like them, I can only pray for you.

Sure it does. Just more slowly maybe than a tanning bed. If a light is truly full-spectrum, it has the same spectral distribution as sunlight.

UV-A, the ultraviolet wavelengths down to 320 nm, comprises the vast majority of the UV incident on the earth's surface, and is responsible for most tanning, skin cancers, AND vitamin D production.

The thing is, your church sounds a lot like mine used to be: lots of northern european immigrants and their kids, raised with a different culture than a lot of us. They don't express their appreciation or emotions the same. They care, they just don't show it by talk or sentiment. When you need them, they are there. When you don't they presume you can stand on your own and need nothing, as they would prefer to be thought of. Its kind of unsettling if you aren't used to it.

The very genesis of the insult 'redneck'.

There might have been some coordination between some GOP groups and her station. Maybe.

Bur right now, the Moore story is dead, and the left looks like hypocritical scum for defending Franken after screaming for a week that Moore must dangle for being accused. All their cries of how much of a scumbag Trump is are eclipsed by how much they defend Franken.

And for what? If he's somehow forced to resign, he'll just be replaced with just as much a fool by the governor. Its odd. I guess maybe they are afraid of setting precedent that sexual misconduct can get you thrown out of the Senate because they've got pervs and molesters backed up by the dozen on the Dem side.

This is a bit silly, trading on the ambiguity of the term "latino".

Just because he's from Cuba doesn't mean he's non caucasian. Looking at him, it seems obvious he has about as much non-caucasian lineage as Elizabeth Warren. His family are basically Spaniards who emigrated from Cuba.

He can't claim to be an ethnic minority like Cubans or Central Americans who have Indian and African ancestors in their lineage. As I said, playing the Elizabeth Warren card.

In fairness to the crook Menendez, he himself did not use the word "racism," for the obvious reason that he is white. He claimed anti-Latino bias, which is just as ridiculous and loathsome.

I suppose he is playing to his next jury. He cannot possibly believe that Obama (Holder/Lynch=Obama) would have gone after him out of ethnic hostility.

I wish the sleazy bastard had spoken the truth (as I see it.) Obama, who let all kinds of corruption and crime pass, went after Menendez because he dared to openly oppose the capitulations to Iran and Cuba.

But Menendez won't say that because (1) Democrat and (2) sleazy bastard. BIRM.

410 Chinese BOLO: "Be on the lookout for someone who looks like exactly no one else in the country."
=====

True story: My giant kid and another neighbor kid with wild red hair ditched school one day. The two idiots went to the playground behind the elementary school where they both attended. PE teacher called middle school and asked if they were missing some kids. I swear to this day that the entire town was laughing so hard they couldn't notify anyone. My mother's take was, 'they thought their Harry Potter invisibility cloaks were activated'. The two most noticeable kids in town. As parent, I couldn't even be stern enough because I was laughing too hard as well.

411 I'd be interested to know how this Nork escaped his indoctrination. How did he spot the contradictions and figure out that the assertions couldn't be accepted on face value? I'm guessing most Norks aren't as cynical as most Russians, which is why the DPRK is still a thing.

420 If multiculturalism means giving up your virgin daughters in the West Midlands of England to muslims immigrants then WTF is the purpose of an empire? A few bucks for the rich. Appointments to governor positions in remote countries for you elites. And then turn over your civilization to vandals.

Same thing here. What is the purpose of Amazon, Google, The Internet, and the whole Tech Revolution if we have sacrificed the entire black family culture and lower middle class to import some diseased, ignorant, third world ne'er do well to mow yards, nail boards, destroy school districts, decimate healthcare, and kill our women and children.

My guess is illegal aliens cost about $250 to $500 Billion per year. Who knows, maybe a Trillion. In my lifetime (hope I last another 20 years) there is no way to assimilate the illegal and legal immigrant population into our Judeo Christian society. That means we will become more multi-cultural society and accept more violence on women and children, more corruption, and more depravity. It sounds fun until it is your 10 year old daughter groomed to be a sex slave, your son forced into gangs, and your wife raped.

Think on it... 1 million LEGAL immigrants per year... then add H1Bs...

Over 33 years... that's well over 33 Million Immigrants... of a total population of 330 Million people in America...

And that does not even count ILLEGAL immigrants... which realist estimates put north of another 30 Million...

We could easily have 20% of the population who are Foreign Born.

So just a few things that didn't get their full attention at the AoSHQ this past week.

If these stories don't trip your trigger feel free to open thread away. As always we ask that you don't tug the 'ettes pony or pig tails. Play nice with one another.

17 Concerning the "service pig". Every time I see a cropped haired, bitter faced old bint with her "service animal" I realize who and what makes up the ranks of the democrat party.

I usually see a couple of them around here and they have made their "service animal" a cool vest with patches on it supposedly to symbolize how important they and the animal are.

I always fell sorry for the dog/pig/Joe Biden on the leash as the poor things remind of Ralphie when he had to wear the bunny outfit.

I was at a beer garden in Flagstaff. Guy comes into it with his "service" dog. Waiter explains that dogs are welcome but he needs to sit in another section. Guy says it's his service animal Waiter shrugs, takes his order and walks away.

Can I light up and tell them it's a service cigarette?

77 Keystone cops

First, make pot legal and this would never happen.

Second, the undercover cops missed a chance to establish their street cred by being arrested.

Third, the undercover cops can't tell the other cops about their undercover work because you can't trust the cops.

Fourth, the arresting cops might have been doing it to protect the neighborhood drug dealers from the under cover cops.

101 Commando unit may get new 'super rifle' in coming months
IDF Navy's elite Shayetet 13 soldiers receive a new multi-terrain vest, with new MCX rifles possibly on the way, to replace 5 different kinds of rifles currently in use by the unit's highly-trained marksmen.

The IDF has also begun examining a new brand of "super rifle," which may replace the individual rifles of the unit's most elite and highly trained warriors in the foreseeable future . The multi-purpose MCX rifle by US company SIG Sauer is one such weapon, considered by the IDF for its ability to hit its target for several different distances. The rifle is due to arrive within the next few months.

I guess it would be a help to be able to shoot accurately at different ranges.

Terrorists aren't generally cooperative about that.

Dead in car crashes, hospitals strike first.
Keeps growing yet government not knowing what it is trys to explain it away, coves up effects.
Breakout in a stadium unleashes thousands of zombies in a city
Government over panics , quarantined off areas get totally taken over, mass zombie groups break out forcing more area to be quarantined.
But spreading virus to living keeps quarantine ineffective.

Define the word "urge."

Most of the time we don't have to think to breathe. It happens naturally. So if by urge we mean "something I am thinking I want to do," breathing doesn't usually occur that way.

Now, consider one's excretory system. There are urges that occur in that realm, and it depends (see what I did there?) on the situation, but that urge can be as great as anything.

In a move certain to please conservatives, President Donald Trump on Friday added five names to his list of candidates for a prospective U.S. Supreme Court vacancy as he presses ahead with a campaign to move the federal judiciary to the right.

Two of them are appellate judges who were nominated by Trump earlier this year and confirmed by the Senate: Amy Coney Barrett and Kevin Newsom. Another, Brett Kavanaugh, sits on the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, long viewed as a stepping-stone to the high court.

The others were Britt Grant, a Georgia Supreme Court justice, and Patrick Wyrick, a Oklahoma Supreme Court justice.

specialization optimizes efficiency, but any organization that over specializes gets brittle, unable to react quickly to rapidly changing situations, and is prone to having too many critical links knocked out.

Cross training and ability is essential (the CNC operator in a shop gets the flu you want someone else to be able to set it up and run it, for example, or else your production is shot for a week) but you really don't have the guy that runs the lathe grinding welds unless that's the only thing to do at the moment.

Dad's birthday was earlier this month, and he told me not to get him anything.
He drinks the caramel and fireball whiskeys, so I got him a fifth of Pisco--a white Chilean brandy--for a change.

He mentioned that it tastes terrible (and this from a man who used to buy Georgia Moon by choice) but I noticed it is half gone, so I suppose "waste not, want not" is still in effect.

204 Re: service animals. As an MD I get requests for this pretty frequently. I try to be conservative about granting them, as it is far too easy for an MD just to write a letter for even the most bullshit case. I recently lost a patient over this. A young guy I had seen exactly once, who did not mention anything about anxiety, PTSD, etc at that visit.

He later emailed me requesting a letter so he could take his dog with him because he gets "anxious." I told him that I would be happy to see him and discuss, but that I felt it was more the provenance of psychiatrists to write said letters and that another option might be to try medication if he had significant problems with anxiety. He wrote back a very self righteous and nasty letter stating that he would leave my practice if I wouldn't write the letter and that he could not believe that I wanted to put "toxic chemicals" into his system.

Well as they say, "Challenge Accepted." I declined to write the letter and I haven't heard from him since. No great loss.

times higher than that of private-sector workers (6.4 percent). (See table 3.)

--Workers in education, training, and library occupations and in protective service
occupations had the highest unionization rates (34.6 percent and 34.5 percent,
respectively). (See table 3.)

266 Airlines need to put a rule in place that if your "emotional support animal" isn't certified by a psychiatrist, it isn't flying. And possibly specify what kind of animal can fly. Normally I'm not in favor of more regulation, however this is not only an annoyance, but a safety issue. Of course certain animals aren't going to do well on a crowded plane at 30,000 feet! Stop making people suffer and putting their lives at risk just so some SJW doesn't get her feelings hurt!

267 247 I get a bottle of brandy in the winter, so after a day out I have something to warm me up. Most often French brandy, but this year will get cognac for sure. I have a feeling there is a outside job coming and as I have been to it a few times sure I will be there soon. It will be outside all day every day through the winter.

Going better than I expected.

All the screws and plaster washers recessed below the plaster surface, and mudded.

Andover two days of slowly tightening the drywall screws into the overhead joists, the rock lath panels have pulled back up against the joists.

Taling and first coat of mud are done.

And I hope to finish the mudding today, and than start the painting.

There isn't a contractor alive who would have done all this. They would have simply torn down the old plaster ceilings and replaced them with drywall.

But, I like the feel and sound of plaster.

59 " The continental US is now divided into 4 standard time zones. Canada still has 5."

Minor quibble. Newfoundland has its own time zone (UTC - 3.5), i,e, a half hour shifted from Atlantic time. This is the cause of many jokes in Canada. One could argue that Nfld time shouldn't be counted, as the island is not part of continental Canada. However, part of Labrador (which is in Nfld) is on Nfld time. So, the strictly correct statement is that Canada has 6 time zones.

They used to have 7, but the Yukon territory moved off Yukon time and went onto PST. Yukon time later became Alaska time, which is used in most of AK, except for some of the Aleutian Islands.

The creation myth for railroad inspired time zones in Canada is that they were invented by Sir Sanford Fleming. The engineering building at U of Toronto is named after him.

________

Her political career was an accident. Her candidacy in 2006 was one of those take-one-for-the-team losses against an unbeatable candidate. Then that whole anti-Republican "Culture of Corruption" meme got traction, and the GOP incumbent had some issues about the cops going to his house for domestic disputes. Gillibrand (a woman, of course) said she was against domestic violence. That was all she needed to get elected to Congress. After the election, it came out that the congressman was the one calling the cops on his wife, but no matter.

She advanced to the Senate when Hillary Clinton vacated her seat to become Secretary of State.

I can't think of a less accomplished person in the entire world than Kirsten Gillibrand. Then again, it's early and I'm not really trying.

70 'yes if to much damage tear it out and drywall it.'

Oh yes, if really busted up, replacement is the way to go.

But, I should have been a little clearer on the house construction.

and if you already are familiar with this, just sky over it.

Rock lath was an intermediate method of wall and ceiling finishing, which was a transition between traditional wood lathe/plaster construction and modern drywall construction.

Rock lath was a gypsum subpanel, usually 48x16 inches in size that was nailed to the studs or joists.

Then, the brown, or mid-coat of plaster was troweled into place, and finally, the smooth coat was applied. This gave a traditional plaster finish wall, but easier panels as the first layer, instead of the thin wood lath strips, and plaster keyed into place.

As our homes were built in around 1953, the wood joists have lost much of their ability to grip and retain the original drywall type nails used in construction, allowing the ceilings to begin dropping down and separating from the ceiling joists.

As the dropping progresses, in some cases, the plaster will crack right at the joints between two of the panels as well.

The new screws and washers spaced ever six inches on joist centers, and then hand tightened evenly across the entire surface of the ceiling exerts lifting force, and eventually pulls the ceiling panels back into place.

The plaster washers are originally intended to simply be installed on the surface and then mudded into place. But, I prefer to not have to try to put over 1/8" of mud on a ceiling, do I take a dremel with a carbide bit, and skim cut into the finish coat enough that the washer and screw are just below the surface. More time consuming, but a much more uniform finish, retaining more of the original plaster surface.

It looks good so far. Let's see how it finishes up looking.

They even bought out the small local paper here. And it immediately changed from a conservative paper to a Democrat PR rag. All the newspapers in SC are now Democrat PR rags despite this being a heavy red State. I dropped all my newspaper subscriptions and told them why.

And a Malwarebytes scan informs me that there is malware embedded in Microsoft's Mahjong time killer. Since it is the kind of adbot that I hate the most and since Mahjong is used only to kill time, I decided to remove Mahjong.

There seems to be some degree of dislike between Malwarebytes and Microsoft since Microsoft updates often kill Malwarebytes. And from years ago, it was said that you can not run two kinds of antivirus software packages at the same time, but Malwarebytes kills adbots that MacAfee does not.

Yes, I know that blogs sell advertising just as broadcast media sells commercials, but I despise that business plan, even as so many websites refuse to permit me to view content until I turn off adblock.

There has to be a better way.

I don't think so. In the article he's trying to strike a pious pose, distinguishing between "actual" Christians like himself, and "cultural" Christians who value politics over spirituality.

In the quote, I think he's saying, clumsily that "cultural" Christians will go with Moore because the other candidate is a Democrat, but a true Christian can reject Moore because of what he allegedly did.

The problem is that Erickson is lying about the facts in order to make Moore seem guilty. 18 year olds are adults, not teenagers. And the yearbook cannot even be properly examined, as Allred won't release it. He's simply being manipulative to erode support for Moore. Bearing false witness. Some Christian.

101 Another little interesting tidbit here.

As many of you know, Baltimore lost a Police Detective to a murderer several days ago.

Shot in the head on a public street, while conducting street interviews on another homicide from 2016.

And the residents of the city are justifiably enraged at the murder of this Detective.

But, during the hours of listening to local talk radio, and surfing local social media, there is one subject which has not been brought up a single time that I am aware of.

Gun Control.

In a liberal, Democratic city such as this, if someone had told me that gun control would NOT be an immediate topic to emerge, I would have told you that just could not happen.

Liberals are attracted to gun control as a fix-all like Rosie O' is attracted to Twinkies.

-------------------------------

I kinda thought that. Microsoft solitaire is the same way. It is 'free' if you agree to accept advertising which comes with the 'challenge' games. They are short videos and I have the bandwidth now. But the adbot company embedded in Mahjong was specifically identified, leaving me with the impression that company had a history of injecting malicious code. It popped up again when I opened the Firefox browser making me suspicious.

All the adblockers have cut deals with advertisers to whitelist their adbots if they pay money to the adblocker developer.

Firefox solicits funding from anyone, everyone, and I suspect the Electronic Frontier Foundation supports Firefox because there was an extensive commentary in the Firefox announcement of a new release that explicitly linked the TOR network and their browser.

I always laugh about these public VPNs, anonymizers, and TOR because I always imagine the CIA, FBI, and NSA running the public VPN/anonymizer.

As I've said before -- age of consent has nothing to do with going out on a date.

Only to the leftist mentality does 'going out on a date' automatically mean intercourse. Because they have few if any morals they automatically assume (but of course, because they are so superior) that everyone else is just as morally challenged.

When I was young, first or second base only meant that she was interested in continuing a relationship. It didn't mean I wanted or expected sexual intercourse, just an indication of physical attraction. Or lack of.

The 'new rules' applied to actions forty years ago is bullshit.

No, actually that's a thing.

Gun control, gun control, gun control is what you hear when there is a shooting EXCEPT when the person shot is law enforcement.

The gun control crowd wants to take guns away from law abiding ppl because they might use them for evil someday.

But anyone who shoots a cop is not in that group, so they don't want to talk about taking guns.

No, it's like someone who creates a twitterbot that posts the same like under 500 different accounts, in order to make people think "So many people believe this. Surely there must be some grain of truth to it".

They are relying on sheer volume in order to put doubt into people's minds against Moore, even though the accusers aren't credible, like with Allred's laughable demand that people shoud just accept the yearbook story as true, and then won't release the yearbook to be properly examined.

133 The campaign against Moore is part of the campaign against Trump. Basically the Establishment Uniparty wants to use the Access Hollywood tape to impeach the President.

Here is the problem with that: there is a phrase on that tape that the left always leaves out of their hysterical shrieking: "...if they let you." That is a rather important phrase - it means that everything that proceeds that phrase is a description of consensual activity - not an assault.

When I was the same age, I had plenty of young girls flirt with me. Fortunately, I didn't see the attraction of young women, even when I was young. And I was living in Dallas at the time although I went to Europe 5 times a year. The young girls seemed the same there as they did in Dallas. And this was in the same time period,70's and 80's.

scrunt despite massive cheating in toss-up States like NH and VT. Even
your own party is telling you to STFD and STFU. Just go away."vic

it seems more like Hillary is keeping up this finger pointing game to redirect the criminal probes.

Those that are now distancing themselves from the Clintons may just want to move the party in a new direction, but they may well see the Clinton Crime Syndicate in trouble and want to be well away from the explosion. Those like Brazile are complicit ... and need to be testifying or getting their own defense attorneys.

But Mueller/Rosenstein and many on the inside still, are also complicit. So we'll see if they still manage to skate as usual. If they do it convicts the whole FBI (and IC), at least the heads, which means the whole fish is rotten. (it IS rotten, but maybe it can be salvaged if heads roll) imo

Stream of Consciousness ONT

Hey, it's ONT time. What's this one about? No clue. Seriously, not one clue. I mentioned yesterday that I had lost all my tabs with content, so I'm winging it. We usually open with a picture, don't we? Lets see what a GIS for “picture” brings up. Oh, look, a prairie dog drinking.

81.jpg

Alright, enough of that. What's next? Actually, what's next for me is dinner. Been working 15 hour days lately, and it's chow time. Lobster. Yum. That's right, lobster. We COBs are living the life of Riley, at least until Riley reports his credit cards missing. Here's a picture of a lobster I ate last month.

Lob.JPG

Boy, that hit the spot. What's that you say? You're tired of hearing about my stupid dinner and my stupid life? Fine, be that way. Here, watch a clip of Sarah Palin's answer when she's asked whether she's been sexually harassed at work:



Now that's an answer. I've always liked her. Granted she seemed to crack up a little bit over the last few years, but I think that's an understandable by product of the unimaginable media scrutiny and ridicule she's been subject to since 2008. She was an early supporter of Trump, looks like she got the last laugh.

Oh, wait, I'm supposed to put in those little header things, aren't I?

Podcasts

Is anybody listening to any podcasts they can recommend? How about a rule here: no politics, or at least minimal political content. We get that enough of that all day, every day. I've been listening to a couple of Mike Duncan's history podcasts for a while now. For a long while now. First, I listened to his epic History of Rome podcast. Folks, when I say epic, I mean epic. Almost 200 episodes and over 75 hours of content, Duncan covers Rome from Aeneas's arrival in Italy to the exile of Romulus Augustulus, last Emperor of the Western Roman Empire. The nice thing is that it is all straight history, with basically no political slant. I think that Duncan probably leans left, but honestly I couldn't say, not based upon the podcasts themselves.

His newest podcast is Revolutions, a weekly podcast examining many of the great revolutions of history. He does somewhere between 15-20 episodes on each one and then moves on, starting with the English Revolution, then the American, the French, etc..Here's a film he made as part of his graduate studies examining the true story behind Paul Revere's ride:

He's also just published a book, The Storm Before the Storm, which is on my Christmas wish list.


Ok, now what? Wait, it's Friday, that means I need some dog related content, right?


Fido Friday


Here's a dog that doesn't know how to dog.


I was laughing, but started to feel sorry for him by the end. He missed a steak!

Hmmm, maybe some music? I'm not sure I like the new, toned down Guns N' Roses:

garden.jpg

Does this count as music?

No huh? How about a NSFW Disney parody? Naughty Little Mermaid

Did you know there's a whole sub-genre of people putting dirty lyrics to Disney songs? Yea, me neither, but there is. I do have to say that Elsa from Frozen singing “Fuck it all” is pretty much thematically the same as 'Let it Go”.

Screw it, I'm going to embed a truly dirty song. Watch it at your own risk.


So, anyone been paying attention to what Millennials are up to lately? Last time we covered them on the ONT, they had just invented the tent, so they could nap at work. It seems that they've gone back to the drawing board, and come up with something even better:

Roommates.jpg

Oh good Lord. That's called ROOMMATES you pretentious, neurotic twat. ROOMMATES! You just "invented" ROOMMATES!!! Stop the world, I want to get off.

Tonight's ONT brought to you by the Mariners:

33 One of the things on Palin: it is interesting (and sad) to see her mind work when she is answering any question now. One of the most refreshing things about her used to be that she spoke very much without a filter and came across as very genuine. The unceasing and horrific attacks over the years have made her completely change that, and I think it is a very sad thing.

It is refreshing that Trump seems to completely not give a fuck.

48 Podcasts.

He's a (not too rabid, thank God) lefty, but I recommend Ken Levine's weekly podcast. It's a grab bag of stuff from his careers in TV sitcom writing, 70's radio Dee-jaying, and other stuff that strikes his fancy. Usually about 30 minutes long and drops every Thursday. kenlevine.blogspot.com and his last couple of episodes are at the top of the page. On iTunes, too.

Also Adam Carolla's podcast is usually a lot of fun. It's a morning-show format with a lot of different and interesting guests. And Gina Graad sounds sexy as hell.

I used to subscribe the Escape Pod short science fiction (stories, so it's like audiobooks) podcast, but they've turned way too SJW since Steve Eley moved on. Their older (before episode 300 or so) catalog is quite good, though.

And there's a Baen podcast that often includes interesting interviews with their authors and a serialized audio retelling of a featured Baen novel weekly.

I like some of the NRO podcasts, but I know they're in a bad odor around here.

I think she causes the left to become hysterical because she's an alpha and the left's beta men know they can't harass her, and the left's beta women envy the fact that she can be confident and strong without erecting a web of SJW taboos.

82 Well, so much for GAINZZ for me:

At Amazon, I guess I'm on a Monin syrups kick. I got the Mango (which was great!) and the Dutch Chocolate (good but not exactly super-chocolaty). Now I have the Lime, which is also IMHO pretty good but could be just a tiny bit better. Glad I bought all of them though. Next I want to try their Cinnamon and their Coconut.

Also, I bought a box of "Iconic Candy" Reed's Cinnamons from Amazon; I thought they weren't available anymore. Good news: the retread still tastes good; the bad news, the lozenges don't look half as beautiful as the old ones did. Then again, it's the taste that matters most, I guess.

83 Revolutions is good. English Civil war was interesting because I had no idea how little I actually knew about it. Turns out it wasn't started by people who wanted to kill Charles I, and he kind of milquetoasted his way there. It also had a war on Christmas and real live commies. I don't think I could follow the French Revolution(s) with a roadmap and Virgil acting as a tour guide. The Haitian Revolution was a Bosch painting set to Yakety Sax, and the American Revolution wasn't anything I didn't already know but was still enjoyable to listen to.

Dan Carlin's Hardcore History always gets a mention whenever pogcats come up as a topic. They're fun to listen to on a long drive, but not without their flaws. Historically, it's kind of like reading the comic book version. Fun, yeah, but it's not exactly rigorous history.

90 There was a piece today by the Daily Caller about a new book by a Guardian reporter about the Steele "dossier."

http://tinyurl.com/y9ovnhgf

There are a number of thing just in the short piece but this jumped out at me.

First.
"Steele has revealed in London court filings that he did not distribute the dossier to anyone outside of Fusion GPS, British intelligence, Arizona Sen. John McCain and one of his associates, David Kramer."

McCain and his associate Kramer got copies in Nov. 2016. Kramer from Steele himself and within the next day McCain got another copy from Fusion GPS head Simpson.

But the reporter for the Guardian wrote...

"In October an email written by a person in the Clinton camp reached my inbox. It set out some of the unproven allegations against Trump, including sex with prostitutes in Moscow. The email said the claims came from a source inside the FSB. This was not Steele's work, but some of it echoes the dossier."

The Hillary camp was peddling the "pee-party" story to reporters in October and claiming they got it themselves from the FSB. Either they had their own contacts with the FSB or they were upset that the Steele "dossier" hadn't gotten traction with the press and were feeding some of it to reliable left reporters trying to get it fed into the US MSM.

Also it seems that the "dossier" was the main part of a briefing on the Congressional Intel gang of 8 in August 2016. Russians talking to and about Carter Page were the main topic. This is a month before a FISA warrant was issued to grab Page's electronic communications which happened after he left the campaign.

gracias for the kind thoughts, as we say here in #Failifornia...

Flonase is a steroid, and my immune system is already a hot mess, due to 3 anaphylactic reactions AND ulcerative colitis...

the GI docs at the VA keep trying to put me on immunosuppressants, because it's easier for them, and i keep telling them i don't want to be like Glen Frey, dying of pneumonia at 64 (or younger) because they killed what's left of my immune protection.

they really don't give a shit about individual patients, they just want to lower their patient load, and if that means filling us full of drugs so we'll go away and die faster, they're good with that outcome.

to them it's a feature, not a bug.

92 F***, now I want lobster. Do you know what it costs to get a properly lively lobster on the West Coast?


You can't. Money doesn't matter.

Even in New England you can't get a good lobster unless you catch it yourself. The few days that they spend between the trap, the pound, and the market change they way they taste.

Fresh lobster out of a trap is inimitable.

(It's been a dozen years since I had a boat and traps a recreational lobster license, I'm just being a dick).

If you are gonna freeze crab, mix in a bit of either buttermilk or coconut milk... the high fat content does an amazing job preserving the flavor.

2 weeks ago I processed 24 drabs we pulled up, 40 pounds of whole crab. Did 1/2 Bmilk 1/2 Cmilk (we do a large amount of asian dishes). Taste tested last week, amazing!

When you eat real scallops, you are eating only the adductor muscles that operate the shells. Not the guts. When you eat fake scallops, you are eating fish meat punched out of the fins of skates.

I had that epiphany a few years ago, too. For me, the secret to a clam dip I would accept was onion juice. What was it for you?

Crab is really different, it's so delicate. Never tried to make a dip, but if I did, I'd go very minimal. Might even resort to shallots.

The history of English one is historyofenglishpodcast.com by Kevin Stroud.

The Mises one is from Mises.org, and it is all sorts of lecturers. All sorts of subjects too--mostly economics.

Oooh, HEY! The stone pages archeo podcast is back and running! It was down for a while. It is mostly reading news releases with some research behind them. The current reader is Philip Hansen, who is Danish, and it is a hoot listening to him try to pronounce Spanish place names

Rob Crawford #199: Smaug. He was the voice of Smaug. So iconic that Jackson tried to mix Cucumberpatch's voice to match.
It failed.

It has been blasted with radiation to kill bacteria. Once the bacteria have been killed, they stop pooping all over your beef. Less bacteria poop = less sickness.

Some screenwriting points. Make sure you include...

1) Touching philosophical insights into the human condition. Regret, hubris, longing for the unobtainable, are all good elements in characterization.

2) Sharp dialogue that resonates with the viewer. It should be real and it should hit home.

3) Include boobs. As often as you can come up with ways for chicks to get their tops off.

4) Include really, really big boobs.

278 Anon, I've read that the beef carvers actually don't want irradiation, because (among other things):

It makes the carvers and inspectors *too lazy.* Supposedly everyone gets the idea, "eh, it'll die once it's irradiated anyway." So you end up with product in the market that's maybe not unclean, but looks unclean.

Of course, it doesn't help that the gubmint also insists irradiated meat have a big sticker on it that reads IRRADIATED. People wonder why it's not glowing green when they see that.

With little brown eyes

True enough, by themselves. I even agree with the "ashy" thing, though it seems subtle to me. But when you are doing the "melange of different chilis" style of chili, Ortega can have a role in that.

2) Sharp dialogue that resonates with the viewer. It should be real and it should hit home.

3) Include boobs. As often as you can come up with ways for chicks to get their tops off.

4) Include really, really big boobs.

403 Seems to me that, years ago, there was a play that had the chattering classes all a-twitter, called, "The Effect of Gamma Rays Upon Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds". I think it was mostly angsty shite, and had little to do with actual gamma rays.

Heh. They turned the play into a movie. It was all angsty and had little to do with gamma rays, but it was still a good little movie. Paul Newman directed wife Joanne Woodward, who played the crazy mother. They call it a drama, but it was pretty funny too.

Regarding Manson.....

My Dad was a corrections officer at Corcoran in the SHU where Manson was housed for many years. Had to deal with him all the time. Two things he mentioned about Charlie.

First is that Manson HATED to be called "Chuck". So of course, when he started getting froggy (which was quite often), the COs would just stare him down and say "whatever......Chuck". He was a coward, so he'd always back down.

Second is that that evil fucker always had visitors on visiting day. Always. Even 20 or 30 years after he was tossed into the slam. And not lawyers or journalists, but people who idolized him.

People suck.

One huge stumbling block confronting QT's Manson Family movie, is that he relies heavily on pop/rock classics for the soundtrack. He's going to pushing shit uphill to get The Beatles for the film, no matter how much they offer. It's integral to the story and pretty crucial to making such a movie well.

424 navybrat, I'm okay with a Manson movie as long as it shows him for the small, crazy evil shitstain he is/was.

Unfortunately that's hard to do. I believe Stanley Kubrick himself once said, it's next to impossible to make an anti-war movie, because war as it's depicted on the screen always looks/seems so exciting.

After History of Rome try History of Byzantium! Picks up exactly where HoR leaves off.
The series is up to episode 157 (1025 ad) and will poke right along to the year 1453.

https://thehistoryofbyzantium.com/

Another one I like is History of Europe: Key Battles.
The title is misleading. It's mostly about the events leading to key battles. For example the one about the Battle of Hastings (1066) spends a minute or three on the battle and 35-40 minutes on previous 3-400 years of English history.

The episodes on the Crusades and Islamic Spain are tremendous.

It's ongoing. Made it up to the 15th century so far.

479 470. As a kid, I remember the old women used to make these sorta pullover smocks from old army blankets. They'd cut and stitch them - they'd be maybe twice as big as needed in all dimensions - then they'd actually 'boil' them with a bit of soap and borax for a while, wring, rinse, ring again, and then dry at high heat - sometimes in a dryer, sometimes by the woodstove.

497 I'll just bet there's an old DSRV salt or two aboard. I believe many countries have one or two, and there is a common connecting collar that most submarines have. The Argentine one does, but Argentina has no DSRV.

Looks like we have the only one that can be air-transported, although it takes a C-5 to do it. We have a tradition of helping or at least offering to help whenever men are in peril beneath the sea. I hope the President is on the phone. Wonder who in the Fleet is in charge of keeping tabs on this.

And we should do this in remembrance of Swede Momsen, who invented submarine escape and rescue after watching his best friend's S-boat stuck just under his tender's hull while everyone on board asphyxiated. And that's how we got the Squalfish. He ran a mean post office, too.

I will say, Final Draft thus far has been *very* easy to use, and is making my script writing much easier. I was sick of dealing with tab stops and formatting in Word.

You know what isn't a benefit of OTA television? Doing stuff during commercials. Watching a show on cable, that you pay for monthly with your primitive earth dollars, you can see a commercial come on and know you have time to get up, take a leak,* make a sandwich, grab a drink, and come back without missing anything. You're not even watching a show! It's like a commercial montage with show breaks. Free TV that comes directly into your living room straight from the æther? Haha, nope. you get 60, maybe 90 seconds, then it's right back to the grinding slog of the content you wanted to watch in the first place.

Posted by: hogmartin at November 18, 2017 01:30 AM (y87Qq)

558 The impression I have thus far:

Final Draft - great for writing movie, TV or play scripts

Scrivener (which I've never used) - great for writing a classic novel, short story or non-fiction work.

561 Johnny, oh man.

Halfway decent audio recording tech just wasn't available yet before the late 1940s, when (as I understand it) the Allies discovered BASF perfecting tape technology.

I've always noticed the audio tracks of movies made before 1939, always just don't seem that clear to me, though preserving them via optical tracks was probably the most reliable and high-tech way they possibly could have been preserved. I think the first movie to really concentrate on the audio 'sound', and tech, was The Wizard Of Oz.

566 qdpsteve! Very cool. You are right; life will be easier. If only because you can concentrate on your story, and stop worrying about your formatting.

Here is free advice, worth what you are paying for it: print out your completed draft ten pages at a time. Check for what I like to call burps, or blank spaces where there should not be, where the software might not have adjusted when you went back to alter anything.

This is something I have never trusted to be bred out of that system! And it saves you from having to correct and reprint whole drafts.

Electronic, i.e. amplified and balanced, recording was invented in the late 1920's and was practically universal by the early 1930's. And a well-recorded 78 has decent fidelity.

$45 full price from their website. I think it was on sale for $20 when I got it. I'm not trying to sell it or anything, just wondering what distinguishes it from FD or whatever other packages people use. It falls into the same category as, say, video editing software or garage-class stick welders or a woman's loving touch or combine harvesters or hi-fi recording gear - I have no experience with it, am unlikely to ever encounter it, and am just curious about what features are worth paying more for.

Remember, much of the audio you hear from that era is being reproduced from recordings, be it acetate records, or film, that has been treated less than well, and the quality has suffered. And in many cases, the techs are indifferent to the quality, or figure "it all sounded that way".
Clicks and pops can be removed from records. I have done it myself with the freeware program Audacity. And you can do filtering to boost or cut certain audio frequency bands to make up for known characteristics of the original recording equipment and/or the EQ's they used.

Oh My: Anti-Aging Drug Trials To Begin in Dogs in 2019, and Humans In 2022, if the Dog Trials Are Successful?

What I'd give to be 29 again.

Why start with dogs? Interestingly, it's not just that dogs are a big animals with some similarities to humans. It's that if it works on dogs, bang, you have a salable product right there-- people will pay to de-age their beloved mutts.

Which would then fund the next research phase, for humans.

George Church describes the roadmap for to human aging reversal treatments

We will see the first aging reversal test in dog trials in the next year or two. If that works, human trials are another two years away, and eight years before they’re done. Once you get a few going and succeeding it’s a positive feedback loop.

His company Rejuvenate Bio is actually working on the dog trial now.

The particular dog model we’re using has a heart disease issue. Rejuvenate Bio is still semi-stealth mode, incubator mode, but the trial is not a secret. Dogs are a market in and of themselves. It’s not just a big organism close to humans. It’s something people will pay for. And the FDA process is much faster for dogs than for humans — a little over a year versus nine years or so. We’ll do dog trials and that’ll be a product, and that’ll pay for scaling up in human trials.

FDA does not need to classify aging as a disease in order for them to treat it

The FDA does not need to classify aging as a disease. If you actually have something that causes aging reversal, [the FDA] will approve it. You’ll frame it in conventional terms, but it can have additional benefits. In other words If you have something that fixes one disease problem and happens to fix a bunch of others, you don’t need to put them all on the label. The FDA doesn’t stop you for using things off label or curing two things at once.

I mean, what I'd give to be 29 at some point this year. I'll be 29 then at some future date.

But what I'd give to then stay 29.

Bullshit? Probably. But... if the rule is "disbelieve 99% of what you read," fine, this is in the 1% I'm choosing to believe.

31 Why start with dogs? Interestingly, it's not just that dogs are a big animals with some similarities to humans. It's that if it works on dogs, bang, you have a salable product right there-- people will pay to de-age their beloved mutts.

Which would then fund the next research phase, for humans.


No. The next stage is to use the same technology to super-age various human assholes.

Re dogs, I'd give a lot to have been able to give Max something that slowed the ageing process. If it came bundled with something that accelerated it, I'd have paid even more, and attended a few liberal mixers.

Yeah, I thought people died because the cells in certain organs did not reproduce (that is, by splitting into two new cells).

So I'd think any treatment of aging would have to consist of using stem cells (and adults do have stem cells).

Or you could alter the genes in the fertilized egg before it divides, in order to eliminate the genes responsible for aging.

But you can't just drink an elixir. It doesn't make sense.

111 Aging is being approached from a number of different medical directions e.g. senescent cells, teleomeres, etc and there are a number of different substances people are taking now with varying degrees of benefits (some quite significant) e.g. rapamycin, epithalon (teleomeres), Nicotinamide riboside etc. You can read the forums at longecity and read what people are working with as well as different theories behind aging.

NB: when you read about some new research study which showed possible benefits of some substance for aging, there are people on forums trying (often successfully) to find a lab to make that substance and test it on themselves.

201 Getting a Dog May Save Your Life, Especially If You're Single
Swedish researchers found that people with furry friends, especially the unmarried, have fewer heart problems than those who don't.


I love pups, but this is a classic example of selection bias.

Besides exercise, if you're open to having a pup, i.e., putting someone else before you and taking care of him, then you're psychologically healthier right there, have more to live for, and more likely to eschew self-destructive choices.

Kinda like getting married, or having children, in that respect. The Ted Kaczynskis, Jeffrey Dahmers, and Ted Bundys of the world tend not to have spouses or pets.

I have had to research this because of nuerological issues. Not only goes biodentical HGH and testosterone reverse damage, but it slows the aging process.

But it's expensive as hell. Think 100 grand. And its not approved by insurance companies for use of healing injuries so you have to look to anti-Aging clinics in Florida.

It crushed my soul and spirit when my only chance at healing and reversing damage had a no plebs allowed sign via super high prices. In other countries not nearly as high.

Maybe you'll live to 90 with much better health, maybe 150 or 200.

But this is also just part of the picture, because it probably won't do that much about age-related brain conditions.

Don't get me started on this bullshit. I know first hand that to get opioids the pain clinics will demand that you have dangerous and unnecessary surgeries via injections into the nerve at 5000 bucks a pop 3 times a week. Nerve blocks that do nothing for most intractable pain like I had.

Opioids work. Naloxone works better. Naloxone ain't covered by insurance so 20 bucks a pop.

Here in Colorado, we elected a murderer to the school board. He accidentally shot a guy in the head five times.

"It was obviously a set of horrific mistakes compounding on one another, which led to me serving time in prison," Seaba told KKTV about the 1997 murder.

Seaba shot the victim in the back of the head, and then later returned to shoot the man four more times. Seaba said he was initially arrested on first-degree murder, but pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

He was a stray, and is dear enough to me that I want him around as long as possible.

I would totally consider this for The Wonder Dog. And then for me.

252 By the way, I like this idea, no matter what the means are of accomplishing it.

Death is necessary for evolution because as one generation reproduces and dies, the offspring will have genetic variations differing from their parents. Then they in turn reproduce creating further variations, and these variations are the only way that life becomes more advanced.

But at this point, I think we're evolved enough.

There is nothing strictly *necessary* about death. The only reason that death exists is because that is the only way creatures like us could have been brought about.

But if you cross a river with a boat, you can dock it and continue on your way. You don't have to lug the boat around once it has served its purpose. And there is no longer any need for us to lug death around.
