Saturday Night Joke

Last Saturday afternoon in Washington, D.C. an aide to Nancy Pelosi visited the Bishop of the Catholic Cathedral in D.C. He told the Cardinal that Nancy Pelosi would be attending the next day's Mass, and asked if the Cardinal would kindly point out Pelosi to the congregation and say a few words that would include calling Pelosi a saint.

The Cardinal replied, "No. I don't really like the woman, and there are issues of conflict with the Catholic Church over some of Pelosi's views." Pelosi's aide then said, "Look, I'll write a check here and now for a donation of $100,000 to you if you'll just tell the congregation you see Pelosi as a saint."

The Cardinal thought about it and said, "Well, the Church can use the money, so I'll work your request into tomorrow's sermon." As Pelosi's aide promised, Nancy Pelosi appeared for the Sunday worship and seated herself prominently at the forward left side of the center aisle. As promised, at the start of his sermon, the Cardinal pointed out that Ms. Pelosi was present.

The Cardinal went on to explain to the congregation, "While Ms. Pelosi's presence is probably an honor to some, the woman is not numbered among my personal favorite personages. Some of her most egregious views are contrary to tenets of the Church, and she tends to flip-flop on many other issues. Nancy Pelosi is a petty, self-absorbed hypocrite, a thumb sucker, and a nit-wit. Nancy Pelosi is also a serial liar, a cheat, and a thief. I must say, Nancy Pelosi is the worst example of a Catholic I have ever personally witnessed. She married for money and is using her wealth to lie to the American people. She also has a reputation for shirking her Representative obligations both in Washington and in California . The woman is simply not to be trusted."

The Cardinal concluded. “But, when compared with Hillary Clinton, Ms. Pelosi is a saint."

Somebody is lucky that she was only arrested and not shot.

MONROE, La. (AP) — Police in Louisiana say a woman came home to discover a naked stranger in her tub, eating her Cheetos while taking a bath.

A Monroe police affidavit says 29-year-old Evelyn Washington was arrested on burglary and property damage charges.

In Section 60 at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C., amongst the thousands of rows of white granite headstones for American soldiers killed in action, stands a marker bearing the names of four servicemen killed in Vietnam. At first glance, there’s nothing remarkable about the stone, one so similar to the countless others at this hallowed ground.

Even the name at the top of the headstone – Maj. Larry Allan Thorne – is not unusual. It sounds quintessentially American, especially when compared to the names of the three South Vietnamese soldiers who are buried with him in this collective grave.

Firefighters are called upon for many feats. It's all fun and games until somebody's raccoon gets high.
Fire department spokesman Michael Pruitt told the Washington Post that there wasn’t much firefighters could do to help the creature, who was a little early to celebrating 4/20.

“We typically love to help, especially when it comes to animals. We have a lot of animal lovers in the fire service,” Pruitt said. “But in this case, they just recommended, ‘Hey, the raccoon is going to have to sleep it off.’”

According to the Post, the woman said the raccoon had gotten into someone else’s weed stash—which is convenient since marijuana use isn’t legal in any form in Indiana. Pruitt joked that the animal had “moved from Colorado, and he didn’t know.”

There are a number of us 29 year olds who grew up with a certain magazine. Mad Magazine is back.


Meanwhile, the magazine couldn’t up with the rapidly metastasizing appetite of the internet, where users demand their satire be as swift and severe as possible (in the early ‘00s, MAD was even lapped online by its long-time imitator Cracked. That’s like The Simpsons being canceled in favor of Fish Police!). A few years ago, the demise of MAD seemed inevitable—the sad end of an already drawn-out drama.

The new MAD—which will be published bimonthly, and goes for $5.99 an issue (kinda cheap!)—will never be able to compete with online comedic first-responders (though the magazine does have plans to launch a Twitch channel, as well as a new podcast). But to succeed in 2018, maybe it doesn’t have to. There’s so much pop culture now, and so much commentary about that culture, that a six-times-a-year spoof-filled digest almost feels like a relief: a safer, saner vantage point from which to view the world.

Mrs. Mis. Hum. and I go on a date every payday. Our excitement is grabbing a burger and out to the local grocery store. As we don't have a Whole Foods in town we never got to break up with them.

Dear Whole Foods- We’re through. It’s not me. It’s you.

You know how it is, Whole. You know. And I know you know. We just can’t pretend it is what it was any longer.

Bad things have been happening between us whenever I’ve tried to get into your sack for quite some time. It’s time to face the fact that we just don’t have that old natural spark between us any longer. We’ve faded from organic to conventional. It’s time to move on to fresh fruits and vegetables new — elsewhere. Ditto your firm, moist, and alluring meats of many flavors. None of what you’re doing to me is doing it for me any more

A federal judge sentenced a 23-year-old man to more than 10 years in federal prison on Monday for his role in a bold string of armed robberies in Anchorage over one week in August 2016.

During the spree, in which he and a childhood friend held up liquor stores, a gas station and finally a downtown bank, Kaleem Tikori Fredericks searched "how to rob banks" and "how to sell diamonds for cash" on his phone, according to an indictment in the case.

If one wishes to ponder questions of infinity and the relationship with free will and consciousness, I recommend "Infinity and the Mind" by Rudy Rucker.

No one has a clue what consciousness is. There is a tendency to make the question go away by pretending it doesn't really exist.

Free will is...problematic.

Posted by: Pope Francis

Didja see the Pope rewriting theology in an admittedly difficult situation. A boy whose father had been a "nonbeliever" and had just died asked if his father was in Heaven. The Pope told him:

"That man did not have the gift of faith, he wasn't a believer, but he had his children baptized. He had a good heart," he continued. "God is the one who says who goes to heaven."

240 Saw "Beirut" this afternnoon with Ms K, and we both liked it.

Jon Hamm, Rosamund Pike, and the actor from Breaking Bad that played the DEA BIL, plus that great actor from Boardwalk Empire that played Nucky's brother. Shea Whigham's his name.

Imagine Hollywood doing a film in which the palestinians are killer assholes. I couldn't, but they did.

Or at least the PLO are killer assholes. We gotta remember, it was the PLO that murdered Israeli athletes and others in Munich, and this film opens at about that time, then time-shifts to the story, happening in 1982.

And then there was the bombing of the Marine barracks.

But we've forgotten all that, right? The palis are now oppressed good people, and the Israelis are the devils.

Thanks, Obama!

"That man did not have the gift of faith, he wasn't a believer, but he had his children baptized. He had a good heart," he continued. "God is the one who says who goes to heaven."

Posted by: gNewt at April 22, 2018 12:17 AM (MM3j3)

946 so i was at the market this evening, getting some things to go with the main course, and this ginormous MB SUV GL 6 whatever was staggering down the lane, looking for a space, and, apparently, tug boats to help it dock.

the license plate frame read "Long Live The Resistance"

it finally moved forward far enough for me to back into one of the crippled parking spots, and i hung by the truck for a moment, waiting for the sharp faced harridan to dismount, but it would seem that getting out of such a vehicle is difficult, so i said "fuck it" and went inside to get the shit i was there for.

came back out, and it was still there, so i grabbed a random sheet of paper from a recent public meeting and, using an empty wine box as a desk, wrote her a love note:

"6 More Years of President Trump. Get Used To It! #MAGA!" and left it under the driver side windshield wiper...

because i'm a giver.

Mike Kennedy made it into the Utah primary against Mittens Romney. I don't know Mike but I do know blowing out Romney will send a big message to the eGOP.

I'm kind of worried that Kennedy might be just as bad (or worse) than Romney.

Of course Utah's more than ten miles from my house, so what do I know?

If he's just as bad as Romney then the message will be worth it.

It will be difficult to be worse than Romney considering the national name recognition, brand reinforcement and influence he will bring if elected.

1290 Hey everybody. I know it's late but just had to share this response to a question at Quora:

What is a typical day of a conservative like?

...by Caleb Beers, not left-wing

Well, the first thing I did when I woke up today was kiss my Hitler plushie and burn some incense in front of my portraits of Mussolini and Augusto Pinochet. Then I went ahead and made some chicken deep-fried in the tears of oppressed gay people, which I had for breakfast, and hopped on the bus to get to the Patriarchy Meeting, where we sat around a long table shaped like a phallus (of course) and swapped racist jokes while eating steak made exclusively from endangered species.

The topic of the meeting was, pursuant to the Pinochet portrait, a charitable venture whereby the Patriarchy funds free helicopter rides for Communists. Presently, we're trying to put together the funds to extend this-- ahem--
privilege to registered Democrats.

Come home from work.

i haven't had steady pharmacy work since GWB was POTUS: something about being anaphylactic times 3 to cephalasporins makes people leery of hiring you to w*rk around them.

well, that and having helped close two pharmacies that were massively breaking the law, and having dented a few others who were doing stupid shit. (true stories)

ulcerative colitis doesn't help either: kinda hard to get to w*rk on time when you can't even get out of the bathroom.

I shitt, shower, and shave all at the same time every day! Out on the sidewalk often in front of your house. Or on playgrounds, in BART station elevators, or while pleasuring a stray dog in front of your favorite restaurant.

i'll drink to that....

and beavers.

true story: when i left that position, which was created prior to me being hired, they broke it up and split the duties amongst several other positions, because no one else they had could do it.

which was also why they hired me to begin with. my

forms, etc, were supposedly adopted as a corporate best practice. that would be the part where i audited the anesthesiologist's narc usage.

i left because my immediate stuporvisor told me i wasn't any better than any of his other slugs... i mean "techs".

1394 I've long believed that the beaver will eventually evolve into a gigantic marine apex predator, (much like the great whales before them) which will use its enormous tusk-like incisors (and acidic saliva) to collect the rusting steel girders and crumbling concrete slabs of what was once human civilisation to build its lodges at sea...

70 Off topic, but I just had a chance to read Mollie Hemingway's piece at the The Federalist on the Comey Memos. The bombshell that CNN was the driving force outside the Obama administration {the O Adm was the driving force on the inside} should be scrutinized and a new look should be taken on James O'Keefe's piece of the FNN. If I recall O'Keefe recorded several CNN personnel who said the Clinton paid for Fusion GPS op research "dossier" was a nothing burger, sham, etc. CNN always knew the dossier was fake, i.e. not grounded in fact.

102 @28 Remember when Mitt was gonna step in and stop Trump and be the Republican nominee or something. Like, ya know, the people had no choice. Or they were sure the people would choose Mitt...it was some cranapple crazy thing like that.
-----------------------

I remember breathless reports about the latest rumor - a new one every week or two - that Romney was about to enter the 2016 presidential campaign. And I remember every last one of those rumors turning out to be false.

I also remember a post made here VERY early on in the campaign season about how Romney wasn't particularly interested in running, but that a number of his supporters were trying to persuade him to run by creating stories about "rumors" that he was going to run. The idea was that these "rumors" would generate a groundswell of support that would then convince him to actually go ahead and run. Apparently not very many here remembered that post, though, given the reactions here every week or two when another one of those rumors was breathlessly reported.

There was no plan by him to run in 2016. It stories that he was going to was all a bunch of failed manipulations by people who wanted him to.


Now as for the current bit in Utah...

It's a bit too early to congratulate each other. If I'm reading this correctly, because Romney's opponent didn't get 60 percent at the convention, the two will face off in a primary. So Romney might still turn out to be the Republican candidate for the Senate seat.

Of course, the fact that it was a post might explain why no one seemed to remember it - everyone must have skipped the post and went straight to the comments.

Summer Movie Season

58. Summer Movie Season 01.jpg

Yes, it's April, but that's not going to stop movie studios from getting the summer blockbusters in front of you as soon as possible.

Granted, the kind of movies that were released exclusively for summer in decades past are now being released all over the calendar. Hell, what may end up being the second biggest film of the year was released in February (Black Panther). Kids are still more able to go to the movies in summer, though, so for the foreseeable future, summer is still king.

Let the rush for children's dollars begin! Next week!


A Very Brief History

58. Summer Movie Season 02.jpg

Summer movie season really began in 1975 with the release of Jaws. Steven Spielberg's superb monster movie exploded in the cultural consciousness in a way that a movie hadn't really done before. It was far from the first movie designed to scare and entertain an audience, but it was the first that had grabbed hold of the American psyche in a way that created the term: blockbuster.

News crews saw the lines of crowds waiting to get into the theater and experience the movie with the shark, and it looked like they were going to crack the sidewalk. Released in June of 1975, it was rated PG so anyone old enough to buy a ticket could go in, which meant a lot of teenagers free from school could spend a couple of bucks to get into the theater and get out from the heat while being massively entertained at the same time. It was a phenomenon, and like any phenomenon, it had it's pretenders and successors.

Summer became the time to release the types of movies that would appeal to younger audiences that couldn't go and see The Godfather on their own (the biggest movie of 1972, ahead of The Poseidon Adventure). Two years later came Star Wars, which combined the traditional hero journey with fantastic special effects and great editing to deliver an easy to digest adventure that anyone could love. With that huge success, the summer movie season was cemented as a cornerstone of American movie culture.


Personal Recollections

58. Summer Movie Season 03.jpg

You people will rake me over the coals for this, but my chief memory of the summer movie season was 1999 when I saw The Phantom Menace nine times in theaters. I'll admit it, I liked it at the time (although revisiting it a decade later I discovered how inept the movie actually is), but that was how my mother got me out of the house throughout that summer.

"TJM!" my mother would call, using the abbreviation as we all do in my family, "Here's $10, go see Star Wars again. I don't care. Just get out."

And you know what? It was great. I spent hours and hours in the movie theater, cool from the hot Florida days and taking in sight and sound from celluloid. Sure, I was evidencing a hit on the head with my choice of entertainment, but the experience of going to the movies time and time again to watch things blow up was the kind of innocent fun that movie going can be.


This Year

So, do we have anything other than franchises coming out?

Probably nothing that will crack the top ten financially successful movies of the summer. We've got a new Star Wars movie, two Marvel movies, a new Mission Impossible sequel, another Purge, Jurassic Park, Incredibles, and Deadpool. Hell, we even have a second remake of Ocean's 11 (this time all girls).

For all people's caterwauling about a lack of originality in Hollywood, the stuff listed above is perfect fodder to get adolescents of all ages into the theater. I'll most likely go see a couple of these in the theater, confident that they will be at least competently made formula driven experiences that deliver their modest thrills effectively enough.

Summer movie season is the easy movie season, which is fine. Movies as a medium can accommodate many different types of stories, from tiny character pieces to giant effects laden extravaganzas to pompous virtue signaling nonsense.

So, bring on the new Jurassic Park. Sure, it looks dumb as a bag of rocks, but what else do you expect from a movie that has genetically engineered dinosaurs being stolen from an abandoned island and being put up for auction?


Back to You

What are your favorite summer movie experiences? What are you looking forward to this summer?

One Final Note

58. Summer Movie Season 04.jpg

Milos Forman died last week. I don't normally make mention of recent deaths because I tend to write these posts far ahead of time, but I have to mention Mr. Forman.

He directed one of my top ten movies (Amadeus), and while he hadn't done much in recent years, it's still sad to see the man who made one of my favorite pieces of entertainment pass. He was smart and a wonderful filmmaker. I haven't felt the loss of a filmmaker this much since the passing of Robert Altman.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Forman.


Movies of Today

Opening in Theaters:
I Feel Pretty
Super Troopers 2

Next in my Netflix Queue:
The Young Girls of Rochefort

Movies I Saw This Week:
Gods and Generals (Netflix Rating 3/5 | Quality Rating 2/4) Poster blurb: "The first two hours are unfocused, stilted, and simply bad. The last ninety minutes, though, is a surprisingly good film with one scene that stands out as something to really treasure." [Netflix DVD]
Ready Player One (Netflix Rating 4/5 | Quality Rating 3/4) "Classic Spielberg awash in CGI. Unchallenging and fun." [Theater]
Atomic Blonde (Netflix Rating 4/5 | Quality Rating 3/4) "Stylish, propulsive, and fun, if a bit over plotted." [HBO]
A Kid in King Arthur's Court (Netflix Rating 2/5 | Quality Rating 1/4) "The definition of 'Crap Actors did before They became Famous' for Daniel Craig and Kate Winslet." [HBO]
Get Out (Netflix Rating 4/5 | Quality Rating 3/4) "Quite effective horror film that I'll probably end up enjoying more with a second viewing." [HBO]
Everything Must Go (Netflix Rating 4/5 | Quality Rating 3/4) "Why do comedians end up playing sad sacks so well? Good, though probably a bit less than the sum of its parts." [HBO]
Martyrs (Netflix Rating 2/5 | Quality Rating 1/4) "Feels smarter than I think it is. I really don't think it rises above torture porn, which its fans insist that it does." ["Library"]

9 I'm not holding out much hope, but I have to admit I'm a little curious about Super Troopers 2 turns out. It's not going to get me into a theater or anything, partly because that's the kind of movie you can really only appreciate at a dorm party, but I don't think it's out of line - or even controvertible - to say that the first Super Troopers is unquestionably the greatest story ever told.

20 For all it's faults, episode 1 was a decently watchable movie compared to everything that's come after in the franchise.

A nice tease of action at the start, the podracing action in the middle, and the lightsaber duel in the finale. Good enough to get through the parts that dragged, imo.

7 was enjoyable enough, but left too many JJ Abrams sized plot holes. If those got resolved the movie would've worked fine, but Disney has clearly decided they aren't going to bother.

45 When I was in elementary school the local 1-screen movie theater had a summer matinee series for kids, they'd screen one kids movie per week. You had physical tickets and you'd just show up to whatever showing you wanted each week. Being the 70's, we went alone. Being the 70's it was also a lot of trippy 70's movies like (IIRC) Jonathan Livingston Seagull and Swiss Family Robinson.

55 I finally saw Sicario, based on recommendations from more than a few, here. Very good movie. It struck me as sort of a lighter version of "Unthinkable". Same FBI chick playing the same basic role, though - both infuriating beyond belief.

One thing I couldn't figure about Sicario was the chick kept wailing about things being illegal and done wrong and all ... and I didn't see anything of the sort. Most of the people they were dealing with weren't Americans (none, actually, it seemed) and she was bitching about shooting outside of the country. I couldn't figure that out.

This brought to mind another movie that I just saw again that was pretty good - Boot Camp. This is another one where the writer/director are trying to say that the boot camps were such terrible places run by evil people, but that isn't even what was portrayed in the movie, itself. The kids there were all terrors and this was a last resort for their parents. In the end they had some statement that these boot camps have operated since the 70s, having had hundreds of thousands go through them ... and that there have been 40 deaths!!!! 40 deaths, over 30 or 40 years, and hundreds of thousands of screwed-up trouble-makers? That seems like pretty good results, to me. Anyway, good movie ... and with Mila Kunis, so there's that.

78 I remember the lines for Star Wars, around the block. I've never ever seen a movie like that again (except for the next two star wars movies, as they came out). It was unreal, lines for weeks.

Jaws, nobody expected to be a huge hit. It was just a summer movie, some fun cheese with horror in it. Cheap budget, little-known young director. MONSTER hit, for no real reason. It doesn't hold up all that well except for Shaw's brilliant portrayal of Quint. Ultimately its kind of a dumb movie but Spielberg uses his usual bag of tricks, to grab you as a viewer.

86 I liked "The Greatest Showman". I saw it theaters about 5 weeks in. The theater was full, mostly with families and kids. The movie is great for them. If you been to a circus, remember it, and don't think it was like watching a slave auction because the Elephants, Lions and Tigers were caged; then it brought back memories. The songs were competent and performed well. Pacing wasn't as boring as La La Land. And if you like singing, the Soundtrack is awesome.

87 We've got a new Star Wars movie, two Marvel movies, a new Mission Impossible sequel, another Purge, Jurassic Park, Incredibles, and Deadpool. Hell, we even have a second remake of Ocean's 11 (this time all girls).

For all people's caterwauling about a lack of originality in Hollywood, the stuff listed above is perfect fodder to get adolescents of all ages into the theater. I'll most likely go see a couple of these in the theater, confident that they will be at least competently made formula driven experiences that deliver their modest thrills effectively enough.


========

Question. Were you really able to sit through the Purge? I got it (from the library thank goodness so I didn't have to pay anything), and watched about half an hour of it, and that was all I could stand.

Pure propaganda designed to psychologically bully you into using a liberal template to evaluate the world that has nothing to do with reality. Even if it got rave reviews as being competently made, would that be enough to overcome the annoyance at seeing one sided propaganda? For me, the spectacle often isn't enough to overcome that. Other people may have a different tolerance point I know, but that film was really odious.

94 5 points to the first guy who says, "Movies suck," on a post about movies!


Okay, other people posted "movies suck" but there was nothing else in their post. So technically, they did not meet the standards for 5 points.

I have to say that the list of summer movies, plus all the other re-boots Hollywood is considering (or re-makes) shows an absolute lack of originality. Like everything else in society, it indicates movies are devolving, not evolving. Movies suck!

I'll take my 5 points now please. Thank you.

95 87 Question. Were you really able to sit through the Purge? I got it (from the library thank goodness so I didn't have to pay anything), and watched about half an hour of it, and that was all I could stand.

Pure propaganda designed to psychologically bully you into using a liberal template to evaluate the world that has nothing to do with reality. Even if it got rave reviews as being competently made, would that be enough to overcome the annoyance at seeing one sided propaganda? For me, the spectacle often isn't enough to overcome that. Other people may have a different tolerance point I know, but that film was really odious.

The fanboys were rowdy and cheered when the movie began.

Slowly, though, the room got quiet.

When it ended, there was polite, but subdued, applause.

And as the lights came up, lots of disbelieving looks around the room. They were uneasy. They weren't sure if they should admit to each other what they really thought of the movie. There was a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of ticket-buyers suddenly cried out in disappointment and were suddenly silenced..

I was there the summer when Jaws opened. My goodness, the crowds! What an experience that was. I must have seen parts of that movie a thousand times. It's still one of my favorites. The ushers and candy girls loved to stand at the back of the theater when the head popped out of the boat when Richard Dreyfus was investigating the abandoned boat. Popcorn would fly everywhere.

In Open Water they only had a budget of about $100,000 so the actors had to do their scenes with real sharks. No joke.

Posted by: ThePrimordialOrderedPair at April 21, 2018 07:44 PM (8gDQu)

120 Well done TJM. Only thing I would add is that for those who did not experience those times, you just can't compare the impact Jaws had on the nation. Jaws had a greater impact than Star Wars in many ways. People wore Jaws tee shirts, people actually stopped going to the beach, they changed their behavior over a film.

Yet, Star Wars was the bigger hit at least as far as I could tell. People did line up around the block and kids would stay in the theater and watch it over and over. People bought Star Wars cards even before they got into the figures. Everyone saw it and everyone talked about it all Summer long.

It is cool as a young lad you got to have a similar experience with Phantom Menace. Similar in the joy of the movie theater spectacle, not so much in movie quality.

My personal opinion is that movies don't have the same impact on society that they did in the 70s and 80s. I don't see movies having the impact of E.T, Jaws, Rocky, Star Wars, and Raiders of the Lost Ark. Of course when we have 100 channels and the interNOT, how can they have the same impact. OTOH, I may just be missing the cultural impact since I am not a kid anymore and movies don't entrance the same way. I think time and place is everything, not just with movies but most experiences.

129 I was five when Jaws came out. My parents didn't take us to theater hardly ever ("you can see it when it comes on TV") but that film did get them out of the house. It took a few weeks because the first time we wen the line was around the block to get in and there weren't any other theaters nearby.

The scariest part for me was when the diver was investigating the sunken boat and the head popped up in the hole in the side. I jumped out of my seat and onto my older brother. Good times.

I think the most incredible thing about the Disney Star Wars movies has been that they make the prequels look imaginative and remind us that, even though they were crap, we at least went to see what would happen.

I didn't see the last Star Wars that was released (last jedi?). I doubt I'll see The Han Solo Story: Everything You Wanted to Know About How He Did The Kessel Run. I definitely won't go to see Boba Fett: The Lost Years.

But I went to see Lucas' shi*tshows. Ponder that.

151 Some summer movie memories:

Going to see Amadeus with my mother. At the time we both sang in a community choir that performed all the major choral works, so we both really appreciated the movie. And when we sang the Mozart Requiem several years later scenes from the movie came back to me.

Going to see Ferris Bueller's Day Off with my sister. I saw this the same day I saw Amadeus with my mother. She couldn't understand how I could go see Ferris Bueller after the sublime Amadeus, but both movies are perfect in their own way. FB was a great way to bond with my little sister.

Going to see Star Wars with my family. We made plans to see it the second week it was out. We kids stressed to our parents that we would need to get there early. Everyone agreed, so we finished dinner, cleaned up and everyone was ready to go, only my mother decided to start making chicken cordon bleu. By the time she finished and we drove to the theater, all the tickets were sold, of course, so we didn't get to see Star Wars. One of the rare times my mother deliberately sabotaged a family outing. It was so unusual and just so bizarre.

A few years ago we had a ridiculous heat wave, and the AC in my house was not keeping up with the heat. My sister and I decided to spend the day at the movie theater on her day off, a Monday. We started with Ratatouille and saw two other movies that day. We got the big bucket of popcorn with free refills, and by the end of the day I was so tired of popcorn.

And I have many fond memories of going to the drive-in as a kid. It was cheap entertainment for a family of six. We'd put the back seats down in the station wagon and bring blankets so we kids could watch the movie all stretched out in the back. I'm sure we slept through most of the movies, but it was always a big treat and encouraged much good behavior on the day.

I don't see movies having the impact of E.T, Jaws, Rocky, Star Wars, and Raiders of the Lost Ark. Of course when we have 100 channels and the interNOT, how can they have the same impact. OTOH, I may just be missing the cultural impact since I am not a kid anymore and movies don't entrance the same way. I think time and place is everything, not just with movies but most experiences.
Posted by: Quint at April 21, 2018 07:44 PM (n13/j)


I think Martin Scorcese (sp) had the best quotes on this. "Words don't matter anymore. Images don't matter anymore." He was be-moaning the death of movies. Because it is true, we have images and words hurled at us 24/7 from all sorts of devices. Our handheld smartphones are a constant source.
So movies? Meh.

It used to be that movies were special. Other than TV and radio, it was pretty much real life and books the rest of the time.

So yea, movies don't have the same impact. And definitely don't have apmuch originality, unless CGI is considered that...which it is not, IMO.

179 SCTV was never huge. I think those quotes you're thinking of came from a parody song about Canada they did that made it up the charts - "Take off" or something. But SCTV was never anything but a 3am show that almost no one heard of and less people actually saw.

All I know is, in 1980, suddenly everyone in high school was talking about it. Before the song came out. People were quoting skits, talking about characters. I dunno what it was like elsewhere.

The only drive-in movie I remember watching was Silent Rage, one of Chuck Norris' better films. But Cat People was on a different screen we could see, and while we didn't have the sound, watching Nastassja Kinsky was just fine without it.

Lego Batman: the first 20 minutes was just about the funniest thing I have ever seen. After the actual plot kicked in, not so much.
Logan: Too dark, too boring. I gave up at the hour mark when I realized there was whole 'nother hour to go, and I didn't want to spend any more time with these characters.
Buckaroo Banzai: Yeah, I expected it to bee dumb, but this dumb? Who decided to pay money to actually film this nonsense?! Funny, though.
Zardoz: Again, I knew this was going to be bad--infamously bad--but I didn't expect it to be so boring. I bailed out part way through.
The Great Wall: Not a bad or dumb as I expected. The female lead is hot, and once you're done laughing at how factually-wrong the premise is, it turns into a half-way fun fantasy movie.

(Why, George, why? Why wait so long. Oh wait, I know...you didn't have any ideas and couldn't steal anything that would fit into Star Wars)

I remember the opening scene, the odd crawl talking about....trade disputes. But ok, let's see where this goes.

We see the Jedi at last, not in a video game (the Bioware Old Republic games are better than any movie to come after them), but a 'real', mature Jedi.

And I'm excited. I'm seeing them do all sorts of superhuman feats. I was genuinely excited to see them escape the droid ship and land with the invasion forces.

And then....Jar Jar.

And it was the literal turd in the punch bowl.

Not the only turd, no. The gungans, the stupid pacifist humans, the weird Chinese sterotype bad guys, MIDICLORIANS...there are many, many turds.

But Jar Jar....he's the biggest. And he's everywhere.

He didn't ruin the canon, the Midiclorians did that. He was annoying, though.

Something sorta twisted in my stomach then.

We'd put the back seats down in the station wagon and bring blankets so we kids could watch the movie all stretched out in the back. I'm sure we slept through most of the movies, but it was always a big treat and encouraged much good behavior on the day.

Darth Maul was legit scary for a villain. Ray Park doing a fine, athletic performance.

And the duel at the end of the movie, the music (John William's last shining moment), the death of Qui Gon....those all work.

But there were so few shining moments in the movie.

I sat in the theater in 1999, and I wanted to get the DVD to pause to enjoy the special effects. I did. But I didn't...enjoy the movie.

236 But for all his many, many, many chins flaws, George Lucas DOES have good ideas.

He just desperately needs someone to sit on him, to tell him 'no' and to pick and choose among the pile of things Lucas wants to do.

He needs an Editor. He needs a Producer. Honestly, he needs to have someone else direct his ideas.

The new Star Wars movies have got the classic old set designs. They fixed that, the CGI crapfest is gone.

But the new Star Wars is now just....SJW politics before story. Bad writing, bad plots, bad ideas. With none of George's good ones.

If you really want to break away from the role of James Bond running around in a red nappy and pony tail will sure do it. Of course a much better movie of his from that time period is The Offense with Ian Bannen

-
In real life, when the Spartans finally defeated Athens in the Peloponnesian War and sealed their victory by destroying the Long Wall from Athens to Piraeus thereby destroying democracy, they were greeted with flutes and tambourines. That may have been due in part to the end of 30 years of war.

Works for me. Some political I don't mind. That Key and Peele vignette about zombies, for example -- it had a political point, and it was funny as hell. Practically anything below "I hate you personally for political reasons," I can tolerate.

Here's a movie contrast, using Rusty Cundieff: Fear of a Black Hat: definite political elements, but, except for a gratuitous dig in the first seconds of the movie, incredibly funny. His next movie, sort of a horror thing, didn't work; the politics went over the line to bitter.

309 Saw the Star Wars Costumes exhibit last year and I can say with near certainty that Lucas spent more time on the costumes than the stories of the later 3 ones. There was an incredible amount of thought and work put into Padme's costumes in particular - single dresses on screen for 1 min took hundreds of hours, handmade fabric and embroidery, research of various cultures' attire to imbue all sorts of meaning into what a dress/cape/whatever was communicating in it's particular scene.

Fear of a Black Hat made me laugh so hard I hurt myself. Its a classic, up there with Spinal Tap. I wonder if rappers admit the truth of the film like headbangers do with Spinal Tap? Rockers love that film, actual members of the bands its mocking. Every one I've seen interviewed or read, they all admit they've had moments like that, all through the movie. I think it was Bruce Dickinson admitted that he got lost in a venue and went to the wrong stage, ran out and there was nobody there.

326 Movie trivia: The film was made and released about a year after the 1974 publication of its source novel, "Six Days of the Condor" by James Grady. The novel's time period was compressed for the picture, hence the "time-compression title change" as show-business trade paper 'Variety' put it. Grady followed up the book with a sequel in 1978 called "Shadow of the Condor" but this property has never been filmed.

same impact on society that they did in the 70s and 80s. I don't see
movies having the impact of E.T, Jaws, Rocky, Star Wars, and Raiders of
the Lost Ark.



Same thing with TV shows and music. When a big band put out an
album, it was an event. When a hit show was on TV, everyone knew it and
quoted it. I remember the year SCTV became huge and everyone was
quoting Bob Doug McKenzie. I remember when a new episode of even
Seinfeld came out, everyone talked about it. Today? With on demand,
binging, and DVR, people just have no connection with shows or each
other.

Athens had that "30 Tyrants" time after the defeat, but rebuilt the Ling Walls within a decade.

The bigger cost of the war was the lost generations, including almost all the senior commanders of Athens, killed by the mob rule of Athens itself. They lost confidence, and lost to other tyrants after that.

353 The thing which has killed a number of recent (and not-so-recent) movies for me has been the "blatant video game level scene." Like in Attack of the Clones when they're riding through an automated droid factory hopping between conveyor belts. Or in The Hobbit (part 2) where the dwarves have to activate this huge Rube Goldberg smelting furnace in order to attack the dragon. Or in Rogue One where the main character chick has to use a stupid control interface to get the tapes, then climb up to the antenna on top in order to transmit them. There are others I'm probably forgetting. It just knocks me right out of the movie, usually forever.

Seven Days in May was how a young President thwarted a military coup. With some help from a few friends, and a loyal Marine officer.

The book by Fletcher Knebel was better.

Harry Potter is mainly a kids' thing. Mainly. But okay.

Now, as to Game of Thrones, I wonder.
I've never seen it.
I don't have HBO. How many Americans do?

I wonder how many people watch GoT compared to say, the audience for NCIS --- or better yet, the audience for the more popular programs before cable came on the scene.

I remember all the talk about Girls, what a hit it was, how Lena Dunham was "the voice of a generation." But the audience for that show was tiny.
IIRC, at its peak it had one tenth the number of viewers as the Mary Tyler Moore Show had at its lowest.

I seriously rank that movie as 4 stars. The rest don't even come close imo, I know that might not be popular. To me Rocky was about the story, Jaws was about the story. In both cases, the follow ups were about boxing and sharks.. Hollywood always misses what made the original great and repeats what's ancillary.

370 I grew up in a small beach town in South Florida where the ocean is clear and warm. But when Jaws came out I was two years out of HS and living up north, so Jersey Shore was the only beach available.

The combination of that cold, murky Jersey water and Jaws was too much. I didn't swim in the ocean again till I returned to Florida.

376 The thing which has killed a number of recent (and not-so-recent) movies for me has been the "blatant video game level scene." Like in Attack of the Clones when they're riding through an automated droid factory hopping between conveyor belts.

The first of those I remember was that damned mine cart scene in Temple of Doom. It just was so blatantly designed to be for a ride. I thought the same thing you did about the Robot factory where suddenly R2D2 could FREAKING FLY.

The moment that the movie starts working is when you realize that it is a Game of Thrones fanfilm, made by someone who just really loves the Nightswatch storyline, and just wants to make a tribute where the White Walkers actually attacked, and the Wall was actually defended! The bungee thing was just a flashier version of something shown on the episode where the Wildlings attacked Castle Black. I counted at least three other direct parallels, plus the casting of Oberyn Martell as Matt Damon's sidekcik...

415 I think Martin Scorcese (sp) had the best quotes on
this. "Words don't matter anymore. Images don't matter anymore." He
was be-moaning the death of movies. Because it is true, we have images
and words hurled at us 24/7 from all sorts of devices. Our handheld
smartphones are a constant source.

So movies? Meh.



It used to be that movies were special. Other than TV and radio, it was pretty much real life and books the rest of the time.



So yea, movies don't have the same impact. And definitely don't
have apmuch originality, unless CGI is considered that...which it is
not, IMO.

Posted by: prof disarray, gumdrop gorilla channel at April 21, 2018 07:55 PM (Ze9kt)
Could not agree more. And CGI sucks, it makes everything look worse by far. I will take 70s/80s special effects over them any day. Of course, the story is the key, effects alone will always be a loser. OTOH, I hear that stuff sells well in China. From my understanding, the fewer words the better, i.e. fast a furious series.

431 Disney paid $4B for Star Wars. That the opportunity cost of that number climbs at the rate of whatever typical investment, of maybe 10% or more per year.

What's funny is that line curves up and away, while the line that shows the money made so far has a downward curve to it. At no point did the profits approach what they paid.

But hey maybe they will sell a shitton of Admiral Gender Studies action figures this Christmas.

One of fave lines from the book "Jaws" was when the trio got their first look at the size of the shark. Hooper mutters... "It's a damn Megalodon." Odd that they didn't use it in the movie.

437 The moment that the movie starts working is when you
realize that it is a Game of Thrones fanfilm, made by someone who just
really loves the Nightswatch storyline, and just wants to make a tribute
where the White Walkers actually attacked, and the Wall was actually
defended! The bungee thing was just a flashier version of something
shown on the episode where the Wildlings attacked Castle Black. I
counted at least three other direct parallels, plus the casting of
Oberyn Martell as Matt Damon's sidekcik...

Here's what scares me: Siri, Alexa, Cortana breeding helpless idiots.

Recently the local news did a story on some city plan to install smartphone chargers. The did some 'man on the street' bits with young people saying how scary it is because "you can't find your way home" when your battery dies and other examples of how they are helpless without Siri giving them directions, etc.

It's not a single robot that will destroy us, but allowing people to give up thinking on their own because, "Hey Siri, what is [whatever}?" instead of thinking, or bothering to possess a map, etc.

Now, as to Game of Thrones, I wonder.
I've never seen it.
I don't have HBO. How many Americans do?

I wonder how many people watch GoT compared to say, the audience for NCIS --- or better yet, the audience for the more popular programs before cable came on the scene.

I remember all the talk about Girls, what a hit it was, how Lena Dunham was "the voice of a generation." But the audience for that show was tiny.
IIRC, at its peak it had one tenth the number of viewers as the Mary Tyler Moore Show had at its lowest.





Posted by: Margarita DeVille at April 21, 2018 08:50 PM (0jtPF)



Game of Thrones the first season got 2 million viewers on average. Last season got 10 million on average. But let's just go with seasons 4 and 5 which got 6.8 million on average both seasons. I don't know if that's first airing views or views over the first week or really how HBO calculates that number.

Now looking at the stupid show "Girls," which has had a run similar in the timeframe to GoT so HBO subscribers is equivalent. The best rated episode only hit 1 million. Most are only 500,000. So that's to GoT what about to a show that is probably close to its equivaltent like say Sex and the City? Well Wikipedia doesn't have numbers for every episode but that show seemed to get 3 - 6 million viewers.

So yeah the claim of Girls ever being a hit was always a load of bull shit.

AI is summoning the devil...I agree with that. And Musk is far from the only one trying to warn people.

I remember reading over a decade ago the warning about Robotics in warfare. I'm diverging from AI here. Anyway, the warning was that once we could replace humans with robots it would be endless war, bcz there would be no incentive to stop it.

Anyway, it was very dark. As I watch us hurtle toward destroying ourselves, I find myself despairing.

The stuff with Jackson and the girl are all very nice, but the scene I mention is one during Christmas.

Two soldiers, on Union the other Confederate, meet in the middle of a river and exchange gifts, some tobacco and some coffee. It's largely wordless and very small. But easily the best thing in the movie and made me glad I watched the whole thing just for that. YMMV.

I grew up in the Bronx of the '50s and '60s. The closest movie theater to us was the Jerome. Admission was 20 cents for adults and 15 for children 12 or under.

One wing of the orchestra section was designated as the (unaccompanied) children's section which was monitored by a rather large woman in a nurses uniform complete with matching headpiece.

After enjoying the double features, the cartoons, newsreels, and perhaps some "Three Stooge", any remaining energy could be burnt off by having her chase you about the adult section and balcony which was served by two separate stairways. This was before aerobics had been invented.

The scene with the confederate line advancing out of the woods onto the union position in the wilderness was pretty good. Though the director couldn't help himself and it bore dramatic soundtrack music. It would have been 100 times better if done without it. The confederates attacking in silence... as they were doing. The images would been more powerful if executed in the same spirit as the attack. Still a very good cinematic moment.

A book will allow you to surround a story, holding onto past, present, and future, in whatever order allows it to make sense.

Movies, if they are going to play with timelines, have to be very careful about it. Some do. Most don't.

Vader is a jump scare that was sprung early in the first film. Composing three films during which he is shown turning into the scary, are not only irrelevant, they're self-defeating in their execution.

His doppleganger, Walter?, was dedicated to humanity. It's all in the programming. The only reason to fear AI would be how much under control it is, and whether or not someone evil is making a variant.

Since there are those like the malware script kiddies loosing malevolent computer viruses just for kicks (and profit), my concern would be AI controlled by bad actors.

489 There must have been some Disney summer releases when I was a kid in the 50s. The most memorable was Jaws. I was visiting my parents in Florida. On the way to the theater there were shark alerts for beaches in the area and a girl had lost a leg to a shark on the east coast. Coming out of the theater I was checking the trees for sharks waiting to swoop down. It was an effective movie, to say the least!

The closest I got to the water on that trip was fishing from a sea wall. Swimming? No way!

I think my biggest fear with Infinity War right now is that the sheer size of the cast is going to overwhelm the movie. They're bringing in a *lot* of characters that have been main characters in their own movies. And that means that a lot of people are likely to be disappointed at how little screen time their favorite character gets.

Considering the fact that no one has any clue as to what free will might actually be - even assuming that it exists, which is not a given - this is probably a concern that will never have any application or resolution.

In modern society, the concept of free will is pretty much treated like infinity is treated in modern physics - as nonexistent.

No. At least for now, we don't know how to make a machine that is more than its programming. We tell it what to do through its programming. How could it decide what to do outside its programming? Other than having it do random, there's just no way for it to have independence.

One day, the teachers decided we'd worked hard enough and brought us into town to see a movie.

The movie was Jaws.

The next day no one wanted to wade into the water very far.

607 every time an entity makes a decision, it exercises free will

if an AI can make a real decision, not predetermined by a programmer, that is free will.

Posted by: votermom certified russian matryoshka bot at April 21, 2018 09:35 PM (hMwEB)


Well ... just the phrase "make a decision" starts the problem. It's an ill-defined term that doesn't seem to correspond to anything. You don't really "make decisions". They appear to your conscious. That's it. You don't actually DO anything.

ANyway, things get very murky when you try to nail down any piece of "free will" (which is why our courts are such mockeries of reason). It is something that is extra-physical in most estimates - organization that comes from nowhere at no cost, pretty much. You cannot know if there is any such thing as free will and you cannot know, by the same token, if any program exercises any sort of free will.

As to applying the concept to other animals ... that also gets very murky very quickly. Many who do accept the concept don't apply it to other forms of life. Most, I might even hazard.

619 I've thought about writing a blogpost on the anti-Christian message of Amadeus. But it doesn't do it well, because the Salieri character has such an unChristian concept of God. So I think it was trying to be anti-Christian for those who dont know much about Christianity. "Yeah, why would God give Salieri the desire to write music and then deny him the talent?" Since Forman followed it up many years later with a hagiography of Larry Flynt and the demonization of Jerry Falwell, I thought he might have had issues about Christianity, but I'm inferring an awful lot from very little evidence.

If one wishes to ponder questions of infinity and the relationship with free will and consciousness, I recommend "Infinity and the Mind" by Rudy Rucker.

No one has a clue what consciousness is. There is a tendency to make the question go away by pretending it doesn't really exist.

Free will is...problematic.

from me in Dallas and I was friends with them, especially Peri. Peri

serious about acting and she moved to NYC. I was happy to see her move,
she was just spinning her wheels in Dallas. They are a nice family.

20180421 chess pic.jpgThe Polgars At Home


Pic Note

The photo is from The Polgar Variant, a documentary by Israeli filmmaker Yossi Aviram:

The extraordinary story of three Hungarian-Jewish sisters who were raised in Communist Budapest of the 1970s to be chess masters.

The Polgar sisters did not choose to become the heroines of this story. It was their father, who, driven by his educational vision, determined their destiny before they were even born. László Polgár believed that “Geniuses are made, not born,” and he set out to prove it. The canvas he chose was his three daughters. The medium he chose was chess.

No kindergarten, no school…. Three girls, isolated from the normal world of kids, studied and practiced chess...

I haven't been able to find this documentary (cough)bittorrent(cough) online but you can watch a trailer here.

More Challenging Problem - White To Play (139)

Here's a fun one. Without the pawn it's a win for White, albeit long and tricky. But Black still has one pawn left to push, and that makes all the difference. What is White's best course of action?

Hint: You can block the pawn with just the knight.

There are a couple of variations, all starting with

#1:
2.Bxg2 Qxh3+
3.Bxh3 Rxg1#

#2:
2.Qxg2 Qxh3+
3.Qxh3 Rxg1# (or 3.Qh2 Rxg1#)

So it's a mate in 3


More Challenging Problem - White To Play


20180421 - Problem 2.jpg
8/4K3/8/3k4/8/1N1B4/6p1/8 w - - 0 1

The key for White is to realize there is no way he will able to win with that pawn on the board, but he can secure a draw.

1. Bc4+! Kxc4

White doesn't need the bishop to draw

2.Nd2+ Kd3
3.Nf3 Ke3
4.Ng1 Kf2
5.Nh3+ Kg3
6.Ng1

And White can keep dancing thatnight around all day. Black will never be able to catch it.

If Black decides to not to take the knight:

1...Ke4
2.Bd5+ Kxd5
3.Nd2 Ke5
4.Nf3+ Kf4
5.Ng1 etc.

This technique of blocking a pawn with a knight may come in handy at some point. You may need it to salvage a draw from a seemingly lost endgame.

Hope to see you all next week!

Or, Windows users can just "triple click" on it and the entire line will be highlighted so you can copy and past it into your chess app.

2 Woo! Game Thread!

Big game news comes from the Netherlands, where at least 4/10 lootboxes instances are deemed to be illegal gambling. The others are questionably legal.

4 Having reached the ripe age of 29 I'm having a hard time finding video games that interest me. Just picked up a used copy of Resident Evil: Biohazard. It was so painfully dumb and unscary. Despite the mature rating it seemed like it was aimed at 14 year old boys. Last game I enjoyed was Diablo III but after a couple years I'm kind of over that one.

Yes, do this if you're at all interested. It's fun on a bun with morons and voice chat, all levels of experience and character levels. Plus even with - what, maybe three other players back when I tried it - it seems like there's always someone there to say hi whenever you manage to drop in.

18 The Polgar sisters did not choose to become the heroines of this story. It was their father, who, driven by his educational vision, determined their destiny before they were even born. Laszlo Polgar believed that "Geniuses are made, not born," and he set out to prove it. The canvas he chose was his three daughters. The medium he chose was chess.

That's the same story with Norbert Weiner, basically. His father told everyone that he was going to make his son a super-genius ... and he did. Of course, the family was pretty friggin smart to begin with ...

34 OT/ But heart-warming

-Loyal until the end: Secret Service agents who served Barbara Bush for decades and who she treated like 'family' refuse to leave her coffin

-The agents stood by the former First Lady's coffin at St Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston, Texas

-Some have served her for decades since she left the White House and said she treated them like family

-Barbara's Secret Service code name was "Tranquility" which former agents said was perfect for her character

When I see these B/W photos, or even photos from the 70s of Charlie's Angels actresses, I think half of women in America have silicone injected into them somewhere. Lips, bust, butt, face...somewhere. Because this is not natural anymore. Just a recent conclusion.

Right? Curves, some sharp claws, strong teeth, faint smell of rich cardamom, silky raven hair made from real silk ravens, and a carefree laugh like a frozen torchlit cathedral full of hundreds of thousands of tiny exquisitely-carved crystal figurines of children, all shattering at once.

Guess I'm just old-fashioned that way.

They're not synonymous. A stalemate is a special kind of draw, and pretty rare. It happens when you are not in check, but any move you make would put you in check. Therefore you have no legal move to make.

And before the rules of chess were internationally standardized, a stalemate could be the same as a checkmate -- depending on what country or region you were in.

We're talking hundreds of years ago.

I don't recall having run into one in an actual game but they show up all the time in puzzles. There was an underpromotion example a few weeks back that came from the chess.com forums. Promote to queen and it stalemates, promote to rook and you can checkmate.

Posted by: hogmartin at April 21, 2018 06:08 PM (y87Qq)

128 So ... I guess you really just want to go with g2+ in problem 1. If bishop takes pawn, then knight takes bishop and either queen takes knight (and is then lost for rook) or rook takes knight, Qxh3+ to end with Qf1#.

I still like my Nxf1 better. It might be a bit slower of a mate but it's more of a gentleman's move, not some barbaric pawn attack on the poor king.

But you have to admit as far as plastic surgery addictions go, it's relatively benign.

Stick another silicone bag in the cheeks, what's the harm?

181 All your beautiful wimminz belong to us!

A female Iranian chess master named Dorsa Derakhshani -- possibly the best female player in Iran, who played on the Iranian national team -- suddenly became an international hero last year when she refused to wear the team's mandatory hijab during a major tournament -- and was kicked off the team.

So she decided to go "on vacation" to the US -- and then never returned to Iran! She enrolled in an American college and as of today is now playing in -- the United States Women's Chess Championships!

The best part? She looks exactly like a younger, sexier version of Sarah Palin:

There's a good horror story in here somewhere. Lovecraft often uses the history of an accursed family in order to build up suspense before he advances the story to the present.

The Kardashians would provide an excellent family for such a backstory. "First Lamar Odom married this Kardashian and was driven insane and tried to destroy himself with drugs. Then Bruce Jenner married into the family and went mad trying to mutilate himself. Then Kanye West developed severe mental problems".

191 The first person who had the "correct" answer to the second problem was Anon Y. Mous, post #65...

65 1.Bc4+ Kxc4 2.Nd2+ Kd3 3.Nf3 Ke3 4.Ng1 Kf2 5.Nh3+
Knight just keeps popping back and forth from blocking the pawn to checking the king.

After his post, a couple people posted the same "solution" and it was confirmed by the host.

I agree that Bc4+ is the best hope for white, but it depends on black's poor play to get the draw. There's no reason the black king must take the bishop. If black simply moves his king away from the bishop, out of check, then he can queen his pawn on the next move, and should win the game.

Posted by: bradc


No, that's not true -- and that's the whole point behind the problem. Even if black DOESN'T take the biship, wherever he goes white will be able to harass him with the B+N and eventually get enough tempos to get the N back to cover the pawn's queening square Look at the position mopre closely. If, for example, Bc4+ Ke4, then white has Nd2!!. If black, queens, the N forks. If black then goes Kf3, then Nf3!! KxN and Bd5+! and BxP.

Other lines are similar.

No, this isn't true. White secures the draw no matter what Black does. Even if he does not take the bishop, White can chase the black king around on the white squares (the black ones are covered by the knight) until he can gain time with a knight check to get into the blocking position.

That is one version, but I don't think it was quite that diabolical.

Iirc, when Kim was dating some guy named Ray J, they made a tape. Once she became semi#famous on KUWTK, he decided to cash in. Since it was out there anyway, or going to be, her Mom made sure she got some $ from it, bcz it was too late to claw it back.

Now, I haven't followed closely, but I find that the Mom had it filmed & leaked in advance too much to accept. I know Kris is diabolical, but they already had their TV show. She did, however, encourage Kim to pose for Playboy. And Kris did also. She's a strange kinda mom. More like a sister.

224 If the King doesn't take the bishop, he has two moves to choose from: Ke5 or Ke4. But, if he goes Ke4, he will get checked by the white knight's next move on his way to the pawn. So, he goes Ke5. That let's him get his queen, but he immediately gets forked.

Admit it. You're suggesting that this is the type of immigrant we want, aren't you?
Which is just a sneaky way of saying that there are certain immigrants you DON'T want.

But seriously, this isn't a "dog whistle" -- I just come right out and day we should let in all the sexy ladies from whatever country they happen to have been born in.

E-mails are hard to get rid of. Hillary's 33,000 lost e-mails would likely prove Clinton Cash Pay for Play, with Huma at point, and maybe even more.

Weiner's laptop could also prove a lot.

Either would help show how the Comey-led FBI tanked the Hillary investigation.

John von Neumann gets my vote as the smartest guy of the 20th Century because of his seminal contributions to so many fields. He calculated in his head over a cup of coffee, the math of how A-bomb critical mass would work. He started Game Theory with John Nash to take a break from his harder stuff. Which led to his Mutually Assured Destruction to avoid a hot Cold War. And the list goes on. Liked a good joke at cocktail parties. Converted to Catholicism to hedge his bets.

Von Neumann was considered a super-genius of a different sort ... even among the rest of the people at the Advanced Institute.

BTW, he developed Game Theory with Oscar Morganstern. Nash was much later.

Von Neumann, by himself, shaped a huge part of the 20th century. His PhD thesis was a radical reformulation of Set Theory that presaged the advent of Category Theory and the biggest change of Math through the 20th century.

Of course, we all still operate on computers built on Von Neumann architecture. The guy was truly something else.

Daisy and the Tootsie Pop.jpg


20170724_142244.jpg

The first photo is Daisy (18 months) - our backup dog – a mixed retriever Craigslist find from Johnson County, TX. The photo was a late night, Ambien-induced Tootsie-Pop sharing moment. Her hobbies include hole-digging and staring off into space.

The second is our primary dog Jasper ( 3yrs) , a registered Akbash. He was adopted from a working farm in Oklahoma, and at nearly 150 pounds, he makes for an unusual city dog. In his free time, Jasper enjoys eating remote controls and howling at anything that moves. When he has the chance, he also sheds like a cheap rug.

Both enjoy breakfast at McDonalds on the weekend, long walks, raiding the cat’s food bowl, and taking up 84% of the bed at night. Sometimes, life is just perfect.

Love the blog. Wish that Ace would host a weekly kick-around podcast where he rants profanely and randomly, while the CB’s try to keep him on topic. That would be a hoot. - Robert

Wonderful photos of these characters Robert. They sound like a blast to live with. As far as the podcast will pass along to The Boss.

sunshine no doubt. - Safewrite

Longtime lurker and AoSHQ fan. Last year my mom needed to stay at the hospital for a few months, and so her pets came to live with me and my cat, Powder. Fortunetly, Powder was a gracious host. Here she is making sure Teddi the Dog is clean enough to stay in her house. Powder also got along very well with Abbott the Rabbit once she learned that Abbott made a better pillow than he did a snack. All three of them get along just great.

Mom is now better and I drove her and all three pets to her home this week, and I’ll take Powder back with me. She probably won’t admit it, but I think she’ll miss the dog and bunny. -Darren


So glad your Mom is better now. Quite an interesting household, cat, dog and rabbit.

Sweet Jasper.jpg


Little Jade.jpg

I took in a litter of five foster kittens right at Christmas. They were feral, and I set about socializing them. Three of them have good homes now. I still have two. They are so sweet and charming! The potential adopters, though, not so much. They've ranged from a couple with a chaotic home life, along with pit bulls, to a couple where the woman appeared to be blasted on heroin. There have been others, some not so bad, but they wouldn't agree to the adoption agreement. I will keep them for as long as it takes to find them good homes. We have five cats of our own, so it's a houseful. I've sent pictures of some of our kitties in the past, but wanted to share the photos of these two.

As to the pit bull comment, I don't necessarily lump all pit bulls into the undesirable category. But the couple who had them seemed to have a somewhat chaotic home life, and I had no idea how those dogs behaved. In addition, these kittens haven't been around dogs, so I just didn't think it would be "a good fit." That's what we (the fosters helping kittens for the cat rescue that is helping us) sometimes say to people we just don't want to adopt our kittens to. I have to be able to sleep at night. - Cheri

Cute kittehs Cheri. I don't find fault in you for wanting those cuties to go to good and safe homes.

***


assner1.jpg

I've sent in pictures of my cats Smokey and Boots before, but I wanted to share our newest pet, a feral kitty my kids dubbed Assner. (Long story, don't ask.) We first saw this little kitty on Thanksgiving day and I noticed she had a bum front leg. Since then we've had a pretty cold winter here in OH, so my husband and I made a little hut for the cat and put out food. At first we thought she was a he, until I got close enough to see Assner is a female. Of course, the telltale howling of a cat in heat also confirmed her gender.

Assner (middle name Dumpling) had her kittens a week ago and just now (about fifteen minutes before I sat down to send this picture) my husband and I spotted Assner Dumpling in our woods and determined she must have her litter under a big pile of railroad ties we have piled up.

Hopefully we can get Assner to the vet for TNR and build a new shelter for her and her family.-Victoria

So how many kittehs did you keep? You folks seem to have open hearts for cats.

Ladychristmas.jpg


ladyonblueblanket.jpg

Longtime lurker here and I love your Pet Thread. This is my girl, Lady. She was a German Shepherd-Beagle mix and she was my next door neighbors' dog. When Lady was over a year old and had her first litter, the neighbors decided she was of no use to them and surrendered her and her puppies to Animal Control. I saw her being put in the wagon and I asked the driver if I could have her. He agreed, and she became mine that day. She was a super skinny, unhealthy dog, but I committed to improve her health. My goal was just to get her to live to age 2. She had many health issues, but she was the best dog I ever had. She went from a skinny, undisciplined, fearful and aggressive dog to a goofy, funny, sweet, gentle, super smart and amazingly disciplined one. I couldn't have loved her more. As she seemed to thrive and be happy on a daily basis, I dared to hope that she live past 10 years. Unfortunately, she died at the young age of 8 on October 22, 2017. Anyone who has ever lost a dog understands the pain involved, so I don't need to go into that. Yes, it is still painful, but I'm grateful I had her for the amount of time I did. I consider it a huge honor of her short life that she be included in your Pet Thread. Thank you so much for letting me share her with you. -Cynthia

Sorry to hear of your loss. She looks like a sweet dog who got to live in a special home.

It's funny because it looks like she's whispering something into the dog's ear and he looks scandalized.

13 We have enough food in this country that we should not be eating dogs and cats. In fact, if you listen to some people, we have an obesity epidemic in this country and fat people should not be eating dogs and cats.

If we were North Korea and starving, it would be a different matter. Then we should be eating government bureaucrats as we hunt down the tyrant who is starving us.

His back legs are still really weak but he manges to get on and off the bed. Hasn't had any more accidents. Just hope he can keep going for awhile longer.

53 The baby fox story, wow, what a cutie.
I have seen some domesticated foxes. I hear it takes 3 or 4 generations to get them to be like pets.
They are remarkably feline. Will lay on their backs and invite you to rub their bellies.
The foxes I see in the wild are also very cute, but I would never consider them to be a pet.

54 Lost a pet to death or disappearance... been there. It hurts.

The worst hurt was the best blessing. A dumped Aussie sheep-herding
dog that had been treated like a junk-yard dog... she found heaven at our
abode, and was a fellow traveler and swimmer. Lost her to cancer three
years later. But, thanks be to God our Creator for the blessing of those
three years!

68 When we bought our house (many moons ago) it had a pet door in the back.
One evening we had pizza, left some slices out on the counter, then we went out to a concert.
When we came back home, raccoons had helped themselves to the pizza.
I had to clean up tomatoey raccoon footprints all over the house.
We sealed it up after that.

Saturday Gardening Thread: [KT]

Tulip Magnolia April 6 2018.JPG

Happy weekend, gardeners and friends of gardeners! The photo above is from a special person.

I read but have never commented on the garden threads, but I thought this might be a good time to start.

I have a rather large tulip magnolia that is quite magnificent (until the April winds destroy the blooms) and thought I'd share this with the horde!

I do enjoy the pictures of flowers but I have pretty much given up active gardening myself.

Regards
Hrothgar

That tree is impressive. And it is next to an impressive evergreen, too.

Update: I really wanted to show how the evergreen next to Hrothgar's magnolia sets it off, so I decided to pan out a little, from his original photo:

Owl Updates

They grow up so fast! CaliGirl's update from this week:

The owls are getting big. The mom stays in the nest with them when it's cold. It was in the low 40s. It sprinkled a bit too in the morning.

And she sent videos! Some wing-flapping with Mom:

And mouse-eating:

Wow. Meanwhile, a neighbor friend gave me an owl. Surprised to find it in front of a snapdragon.

CaliGirl has also sent some lovely camellia photos, which we will be featuring with photos from other members of The Horde. If you have any trees or shrubs you think are interesting, send in a photo!

Spring Kitchen Gardening and Farming

Special Rhubarb

A good friend sent along this piece on Growing Rhubarb in the Dark. Sounds like it produces superior rhubarb. Would take some space and patience. Not as much constant attention as some crops, I would imagine.

We have mentioned regular rhubarb before. You might recall that it grows on the banks of the Volga River. And that dried rhubarb was once more expensive than cinnamon. Note that the stalks contain malic acid, like apples. Not "malice acid". Don't comment on old threads. Keep the acid jokes on this one. Heh.

Forced rhubarb, which is made to mature in near total darkness, grows at such an alarming rate -- as much as an inch a day -- that it actually makes squeaks, creaks, and pops as it gets bigger. It makes for sweeter rhubarb, growers say, and sick beats.

"I'm not patient enough to sit in the building, but I have heard the noise before. Growing against each other. You really have to listen for it," says Brian French, a fifth-generation rhubarb grower and co-owner of the Lennox Farm in Melancthon, Ontario. . . .

The method of growing forced rhubarb dates back to the early 1800s, and continues in much the same way today. Farmers let the rhubarb grow out in the open for two years, as the roots collect and store calories. Then the plants are transplanted to lightless growing sheds around November, where they continue to grow -- warm, but out of season and in the dark. The rhubarb grows without photosynthesis, which normally makes the plant tough and fibrous. . . . The process also results in deep, red stalks, without the normal green shading.

I have never bee a big fan of rhubarb pie, but I like rhubarb stewed, with a little heavy cream, with or without fresh strawberries. I have noticed that the ends of the stalks near the base have superior texture. Perhaps where the stalks were protected from the sun, as in forced rhubarb?

Do you like rhubarb? How do you like to prepare it?

More on Strawberries

Here's a recipe and light-hearted video showing how to make Easy, Classic Strawberry Shortcake. The new detail here is browned butter.

I'm gonna try it. I would serve the biscuits warm. I would slightly crush the sliced or quartered berries. Maybe spread the warm biscuits with butter. And add more cream. Don't know about ice cream.

From the Spinach Tiger, a crumblier, more traditional shortcake dough. Says you can re-heat the biscuits in a microwave before assembling the shortcakes. This recipe calls for sweetened, whole berries, so I expect that it would be a good one to try with alpine or musk strawberries, which we have discussed recently. Don't comment on old treads.

Or maybe with another type of small, pale strawberry, the pineberry. About the size of a nickel. Different from white or yellow alpine strawberries. Not self-pollinating. This one is planted with a red strawberry for pollination. Could be striking on shortcake in combination with blackberries.

The Spinach Tiger link above also includes recipes for Strawberries and Cream Biscuits (fresh basil from your windowsill garden optional), Strawberry Blueberry Pie and Gluten-Free Strawberry Scones.

Strawberry-Basil Biscuits at a Garden Party

Strawberry-cream biscuits with basil sounds a little odd to me, but if you're growing it, why not try it? I remember a salad with strawberries and mild diakon radishes, which also sounds odd, which was very good. You got any radishes growing?

Timely Tips

Gordon sent along a piece on the Curse of the Bradford Pear. I guess you really shouldn't plant this class of trees where there is enough water for them to grow on their own. They need to be pruned to a central leader. Some cultivars are better than others, if you are in the West.

Doesn't mean you can't plant fruiting pears, though.

It is rose-planting season for some and rose-pruning season for others. Hank Curmudgeon sends a warning that rose thorn punctures are dangerous. Gardening - not for the faint of heart!

Gardens of The Horde

We have had some pretty warm weather this week, some cold nights, high winds, hail in parts of the Valley, and a day of glory yesterday. How has the weather been treating you and your garden? Anything new going on?

3 Trees are starting to flower though temps are hardly in the 60's, but I think they go by hrs of daylight unlike other plants. My Daffys just really came out this week.

4 This link isn't about gardening, but it involves the outdoors, trees, and nesting birds.

https://explore.org/livecams/birds/osprey-nest

They have nest cams for a lot of birds. Click the hummingbird nest cam and if the mom is away you will see two chicks. Last year these critters provided this dumb critter with a lot of intertainment. Sadly about half of the chicks from eagles to hummingbirds didn't survive. Nature is not kind.

6 We went through an afternoon tea phase a few years ago and I started making Smitten Kitchen's cream scones. They are great for strawberry shortcake, too.
