Dave Grohl's first song with Nirvana was Marigold:

I think Ringo said the same thing in the early years.

7 NonNativeTexan  Mon, Mar 30, 2009 12:21:47pm

Didn't Ringo at least collaborate on a couple of songs?

Ringo was happy to do Lennon-McCartney songs. He said (paraphrasing) that if you work with two of the best song writers in the world, why would you object?

In German you have "Der Herr" (Masculine The), "Die Frau" (Feminine The), and "Das Madchen" (Neuter The), which led directly to the question of why little girls were neutered and answered by the teacher, "because they carry machine guns".

re: #75 doppelganglander

I'm fascinated by languages that still have gender. I wonder if it leads the speakers to think differently.

A SPANISH Teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.
"House" for instance, is feminine: "la casa." "Pencil," however, is masculine: "el lapiz."
A student asked, "What gender is 'computer'?"
Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether "computer" should be a masculine or a feminine noun.
Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation.
The men's group decided that "computer" should definitely be of the feminine gender ("la computadora"), because:
1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic;
2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else;
3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval;
and 4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be Masculine ("el computador"), because:
1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;
2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves;
3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem;
and 4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.
The women won.

Seen him in concert, both with Genesis and on a solo tour. Pretty good in both, although his solo tour show had technical difficulties during this very song (early 80s). Pretty good showman, but the drummer on the tours is usually Chester Thompson. Collins only jumps in on a couple of solos and major drum parts.

re: #88 lawhawk

Seen him in concert, both with Genesis and on a solo tour. Pretty good in both, although his solo tour show had technical difficulties during this very song (early 80s). Pretty good showman, but the drummer on the tours is usually Chester Thompson. Collins only jumps in on a couple of solos and major drum parts.

You are right. Chester plays most of the drums now. I have seen him 3 times all solo. I have just about all of his and Genesis's DVD. I do prefer his early solo stuff and his Genesis work.

When him and Chester jam together I could replay that over and over. His DVD Finally The First Farewell Tour is great.

Hi Turn..Back in the 80's..I saw the greatest drummer of all time in Berkeley..
Billy Cobham..If I recall the jazz fusion combo it was Jon Scofield on guitar, Alfonso Johnson on Bass and the keyboard player from Zappa..
The night started out with this cool note from Bach and it just kept getting louder and louder and was shaking the house...ear spitting chord growing in loudness.
Then it stopped and they broke into the meanest funkiest guitar licks I have ever heard....we were high fiveing each other and it was the best start of a concert in all time...
During an extended guitar solo We could see Billy on the side stage doing push ups..We were screaming that dude is a monster!

re: #109 BeerDrinking_VictoryMonkey

Is gender a European-language thing? Does Chinese, Japanese, etc., use gender-designations for words?

An extract from Gendered Language:

Certainly the strong form of the gender-neutral language claim -- that language determines the state of sexual equality in a society -- can be easily ruled out. No sane person would claim that China (Chinese has no gendered pronouns) or Iran or Afghanistan (Persian has no gendered nouns at all) are particularly gender-inclusive societies. I suppose a better test might be to look at the impact of language in societies where most other things are equal. Finno-Ugric languages have no gendered pronouns: Did Soviet-era Hungary have more sexual equality than her Eastern Bloc neighbours? In bilingual Finland, do Finnish-speaking women have a better time of it than Swedish-speaking women? Maybe they do -- I haven't seen any figures. In any case, it would be hard to say that language was the determining factor either way. Hopefully some day a psychologist or linguist will come up with a controlled study of the question. Until then, most of this argument is just blather.

Still searching for a more definitive list, if that is possible.

Is gender a European-language thing? Does Chinese, Japanese, etc., use gender-designations for words?

It's mostly an Indo-European language thing but similar concepts are found in other languages.

Well, lets hope this works out.

I get the bill for my Emergency Room visit last month, $10k.

I call up my insurance and ask WTF is going on, they said the hospital I went to was outside their network.

I pointed out it was an emergency and that I was in an ambulance and they took me to the closest hospital they could take me and I wasn't exactly in any condition to have asked that at the time, plus I noted they approved the ambulance ride as being covered by my plan.

They said it wasn't entered into their system as a ER visit, so they'll throw it back in as an appeal and hopefully get the coverage worked out right.

I just KNEW you'd be the one to offer counter-point and detailed analysis to my comment. ;)

I was reminded of this recently, while watching the Spanish movie Pan's Labyrinth. One of the mythical creatures in it (the faun) is heard using the "vos" form, which in the context of the movie from Spain is supposed to sound archaic, like a faun in Narnia saying "thee". But at the same time, the "vos" form is normal usage today in Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay.

Spain has an official Royal Spanish Academy to regulate the language; an old-world concept not followed by the Mexicans, who are derided for inventing new words.

[Link: en.wikipedia.org...]

So does France...

"Académie française
The Académie française was established in 1635 to act as the official authority on the usages, vocabulary, and grammar of the French language, and to publish an official dictionary of the French language. Its recommendations however carry no legal power and are sometimes disregarded even by governmental authorities. In recent years the Académie has tried to prevent the Anglicisation of the French language.[4]"

NEW YORK – CNN is poised to finish March third in the prime-time weeknight ratings behind Fox News Channel and MSNBC, the first time this has ever happened for the channel that pioneered the cable news genre nearly three decades ago.

Makes sense to me. CNN is a left-wing news outfit that always did its best to hide its bias, cultivating a reputation for professionalism. Fox and MSNBC are right-wing and left-wing outlets, respectively, that have never even tried to appear neutral or professional. I think extremism is what appeals these days.

I had a bunch of Puerto Rican friends I hung around with one summer I spent in Madrid. It was absolutely hilarious to watch and hear them interact with Spaniards. Just their casual and frequent use of the word "anyway" to break up a (mostly) otherwise-Spanish sentence would cause the poor Spaniards to come close to conniption fits.

A musician dies and goes to heaven.
He notices a series of doors with numbers on them.
St. Peter explains: “They’re IQ numbers. You choose a room based upon the IQ of those you’d like to be with.”
“Cool!” replies the musician.

He opens the door marked ‘155’ and hears the following:
“String theory is actually quite simple, much simpler than Einstein’s theory of relativity…”
“….way over my head….”, he thinks.

He moves on and opens the door marked ‘75’:
“I just LOVE reality shows! Don’t you?”

“……good grief…..” he mutters to himself.

Finally, in exasperation, he opens the door marked ‘12’.
He spots several people just sitting in complete silence…..no conversation whatsoever.
Suddenly, one of the occupants turns to another and speaks:

“So……what kind of sticks do you use?”

Many of those tunes are 40 years old and are still incredibly popular. I can hear them being played in 60 years from now, easily. Michael Jackson's "Thriller" was the turning point, in my humble opinion. Sure it was the first LP to sell 40 million copies. But would you listen to any song from that LP right now? I mean do any of those tunes beckon you? I think not. From that point on, music was made for the moment. No real staying power. Sure there is the odd exception.

I had a werck last March, and though I wasn't hurt, I went to the hospitial for every kind of test you can imagine. I got out, and my car insurance (Allstate) payed without question. They didn't even raise my rates. My health insurance was a different nightmare. They refused to pay for the ER.

It was a $16,750 bill. Keep that figure in mind. I fought it through three or four appeals, and they kept trying to weasel out of paying on technicalities (it had to do with the fact that my auto insurance had a $1000 medical on it. That paid for the ambulance and a little bit else, leaving me almost seventeen grand owed).

I fought withthem, and kept fighting with them until I finally crossed every "t" and dotted every "i" and jumped through all of the hoops that they wanted me to. They paid the ER its agreed in-plan cost.

If they are going to rob people, they should use a gun. Why the hell would they do so many tests if you weren't hurt? Like they couldn't tell that? And don't give me that CYA shit. This kind of shit is gonna get us Dr. Obama.

$750.

Yes, I meant seven hundred fifty dollars. Down from almost seventeen grand. If it had been the $750, I'd have just said "fuck it" and paid it myself. Seventeen grand was out of the question.

A Canadian court has upheld the government's position to not allow into Canada George Galloway. Galloway has given money in support of HAMAS, a terrorist organization, in excess of 40,000 dollars, and is thus barred from entry into Canada. (Seeing as how Galloway would be, no doubt, fund raising for yet more money to be given to the terrorists.)

re: #214 Taqiyyotomist

I SO wish I could go back in time and tune the E string on the bass in Bob Marley and the Wailers' "Stir it Up". It's hard to listen to that song for me, the bass is so out of tune. First bass note in the song makes my teeth grit, like nails on the chalkboard.

You reminded me of this: Jamie Lidell: "Multiply." Not a reggae song, but the guitar riff reminds me a little of the one in "Stir it Up," even though this riff is actually much more reminiscent of "She Caught the Katy." More importantly, in "Multiply," the high E-string on the guitar is very, very flat, and it really bugs me. Not the guitar that's playing the repeating riff, the lead guitar. I really wish I could just reach in there and tune it up for the guy.

I still enjoy the tune.

I kept a big old box of souvenirs for the kids that I sprung out a couple years ago when they started to get interested in music

only my youngest took up music (guitar)
and I had a guy who played in one of that vintage, who lived nearby, give him lessons for a year or so

and even though he offered modern "music" instruction
son wanted to only play 70's

and damnit
I so wanted to be the manager of my kid's band
but he wants to be a freaking doctor

My daughter is in College and is a total Led head..I am very proud..2 of the boys like 50 cent and hip hop and my Son in the Marines thinks Peter Frampton is G-d.. ( his musical tastes kind of freaks me out..Peter Frampton? He is also a humble pie freak) What have I done?

I wasn't totally opposed to him, but I only hoped he'd beat out McCain because McCain is, well, McCain. I expected him to run a limp campaign, and he fulfilled my expectations.

I think Romney would have been a better choice, but that campaign is over. Why does Romney merit a second look from me?

Romney got a second look from me based on comments from TFK, to tell the truth. I'm still open to other candidates, but right now fiscal matters have taken a front seat for me.

Bad news for Galloway:

[Link: www.hurryupharry.org...]


Controversial British MP George Galloway’s request for an injunction to enter Canada has been denied by a Federal Court judge.

The decision prevents Mr. Galloway from appearing in person at an event in Toronto this evening, the first of three scheduled events in Canada.

The federal government has told Mr. Galloway he could not enter Canada because he allegedly engaged in terrorist activities.

In a letter to Mr. Galloway, the government says the MP delivered humanitarian goods to war-torn Gaza and gave $45,000 to Hamas, which is a banned terrorist organization in Canada.

On Sunday, one of the lawyers who made the injunction bid said the British MP gave money to the head of the government in Gaza, not to the head of Hamas, even though they are the same person.

Romney was a superior candidate to McCain. He would have run a sophisticated campaign, particularly on the economy.
Further he wouldn't have slobbered over Obama. At one rally McCain damn near endorsed BHO.

Mccain really pissed me off. I partially blame him for the mess we are in now. His no-negative stance towards Obama was stupid. I feel like that's what's going on now. Why aren't the Republicans all over this guy?

Do you view it as a symptom of a larger problem? The music. Gap clothes & trendoids like Urban Outfitters. Strip malls. Truly unique stuff just doesn't seem to make it.

As I've stated once before. I believe MTV destroyed music. Who could produce the coolest video began to outshine who could produce the coolest song. So the focus was on video. Shlock songs sold millions because the video stuck in kids heads like bazooka Joe gum. I think that's what started it. Then it progressed to stage presence, where, video hungry teens needed their eyes fed more than their ears. Hence the S&M productions put on by Madonna, etc. etc. etc.

"Classic Rock" to me can now be defined as the finite collection of about 200, maybe 250 songs that they have played all day, every day, on every classic rock station, and now beamed from space on XM/Sirius. I asked a radio station manager once if these songs (you know them...the five songs from each artist that they are willing to play, despite the 300 songs in that artist's reportoire(sp), most of which are far better) were now public domain like "mary had a little lamb" or something, and if that's why those are the only 250 songs I've heard on Classic Rock stations for the last 38 years of my life.

We got our 13 and 11 year old sons Rockband 2 for Christmas and added the Rockband 1 songs for one of their birthdays. They are now into listening to bands on classic rock stations when we tell them which songs from the Rockband games those bands have done. The 11 year old is into the Who (yay!) and Bon Jovi (Lord help us). They recognize Gimme Shelter, Carry on Wayward Son, Eye of the Tiger, and a bunch of hair bands (oh well). The hubby and I have actually found some newer rock songs that we like that they're into so it's been a pretty fun experience. It's funny-we've exposed them to classic rock for years but not until Rockband did it really take.

This discussion reminds me of a conversation I had once over the development of hip-hop as offering a simulacrum of the development of art as that about which narratives were made, with the interpretation as that which bestows meaning on the thing interpreted.

All that was necessary was to remember that the MC used to provide commentary and explanation of the skills of the DJ and the dancers. Gradually, the virtuosity of the DJ became unimportant, as the functions could be performed by computer, and all that remained was the MC, who now had no point of reference for his rap except his own sorry self.

that's fascinating because if true, it means John Kerry and Rep. Keith Ellison (Minnesota) probably DID meet with Hamas when they visited Gaza recently.

Remember how the disingenuous Kerry kept insisting he had not met with Hamas? Bwahaha.

How stupid does Kerry think Americans are?

Kerry always meets with the country's sworn enemies.

They think we're stupid enough to keep electing him.

re: #377 Jimmah

From your link...

TORONTO — A court decision Monday upholding a ban on George Galloway from entering the country amid allegations he engaged in terrorist acts will see the British MP deliver speeches to Canadian audiences via a live video link from New York.

Following the Federal Court ruling, organizers of Mr. Galloway's now aborted speaking tour said the maverick politician would not attempt to enter Canada.

“We're not interested in doing anything illegal whatsoever,” said James Clark, a peace activist and one of the speaking tour's organizers. “Our expectations were such that we were already implementing Plan B, which was to make sure that he can still deliver the speech from a live broadcast.”

James Clark is NOT a peace activist, he's an extreme leftists agitator who has made a career of inserting himself into activist cause in Toronto for the past 30 years.

In German you have "Der Herr" (Masculine The), "Die Frau" (Feminine The), and "Das Madchen" (Neuter The), which led directly to the question of why little girls were neutered and answered by the teacher, "because they carry machine guns".

Mark Twain pointed out that in German, a train is feminine, but a girl is neuter, which he feels gives far too much respect to the train, and none at all to the girl.

But Twain had a grudge against the German language.

Patchouli can be actually pretty on clean skin (if you use a little). Put it on someone who doesn't do soap though and it takes on its own atomic half-life.

We call them Mobys on line, pretty easy to spot. What's different on the right is that other conseravtives bash them, not join them as happens on the left.

Unless you're on Little Green Footballs - Charles Johnson only allows the echo-chamber posters on his site. But he's not a conservative, but rather a leftist plant designed to split fiscal conservatives from social conservatives, water down the GOP vote. Good scam tho...

Don't have to go all that far, wiping the PC, I think. Try a program called Spybot Search & Destroy, it's free. I've been using it for years, with great success.

Also, go into add/remove programs in your control panel, and remove all the crap that's in there that might be causing the problem (like SuperSearch toolbars and crap like that...I just made the name up, but there are hundreds of them out there that hijack your searches like that).

Also, try this search term (if you can find a PC that allows you to search)
"google yahoo searches redirecting"

Also, Firefox3 with an addon called NoScript, and this will never happen to you again. Noscript doesn't allow any scripts to be run unless you allow them. What is happening, I think, is that there is a piece of malware running a script on your site.

I also found these 2 sites.

But there is a minority of intellectual pacifists whose real though unadmitted motive appears to be hatred of western democracy and admiration of totalitarianism. Pacifist propaganda usually boils down to saying that one side is as bad as the other, but if one looks closely at the writings of younger intellectual pacifists, one finds that they do not by any means express impartial disapproval but are directed almost entirely against Britain and the United States. Moreover they do not as a rule condemn violence as such, but only violence used in defence of western countries.

The federal wilderness designation provides the highest level of government protection from logging and other forms of commercial use and development.

The land protected by the 2009 Omnibus Public Land Management Act extends across nine states.

Obama signs public lands reform bill
Posted: 03:28 PM ET

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Conservationists claimed one of their most significant victories of the new administration Monday as President Barack Obama signed sweeping land reform legislation designating two million additional acres of public wilderness areas.

The federal wilderness designation provides the highest level of government protection from logging and other forms of commercial use and development.

The land protected by the 2009 Omnibus Public Land Management Act extends across nine states.

The whole fucking country is gonna be a wilderness. ODS kicking in.

We need that land for the new tent cities Obama is bring on.

I truly hate Patchouli. I studied at a place where loads of hippie girls were drenched in that stuff.

Last Saturday I had a guy in the shop for about an HOUR who reeked of patchouli (is that redundant?) I burned some piñon incense while he was there and some more after he left. The next customer could still smell him.

There used to be a guy in town who was a fellow cyclist and a patchouli abuser. I had to be at least two blocks behind him if we were riding on the same street.

All most every one of my daughter's colds turned into pneumonia. Finally, at age nine, her pediatrician detected a heart murmur. To make a long story short she was diagnosed with Atrial Septal Defect. There was essentially no wall between the upper chambers of her heart. Open heart surgery at Arkansas Children's Hospital fixed the problem and she has not had bout of pneumonia since.

I don't want to scare you but that avenue ought to be explored, just to rule it out.

At our middle school, the boys come out of PE reeking of AXE! I wish they would ban that fragrance! Axe on Sweat in not a pretty scent!

Ugh! Poor saps! I'm considering work on a corrective volume, intended to guide young gentlemen from their teens through their late 20's. The goal will be to expose the poor saps to the true lore of gentlemanship - which beer to drink, which wine with which meat, which ties to wear with which spats, pocket squares, proper knots for the ties, etc., etc. There's a lot of work to be done, I tell you that much.

Al Gore to tout fed boo$t to Hub green projects


Former Vice President Al Gore will team up with Mayor Thomas M. Menino today to announce that the city is receiving $6.5 million in federal stimulus funds to help kick-start “Renew Boston,” a program aimed at reducing the Hub’s greenhouse gas emissions.

The money will help create a program that will reduce energy consumption by weatherizing homes and retrofitting city-owned buildings. The money also will be used to spur the development of “shovel ready” municipal solar-electric, solar-thermal and wind-energy projects, according to the city.

Teachers and cops are getting laid off and the city of Boston is spending $6.5 MILLION on this B.S.

This is a partial repost. I am putting it here because I think the other thread is dying.

There are many papers like the following one. The bottom line is that when we do the numbers in any reasonable type on modeling we have without human driving factors -CO2 is just one of them, we get vastly different results from what is observed, and from models with those factors. The models with those factors are much closer to reality. In short, by doing this process all over the world again and again, we begin to rule out purely "natural" causes for global climate change.

Attribution of polar warming to human influence

Author(s): Gillett NP (Gillett, Nathan P.)1, Stone DA (Stone, Daithi A.)2,3, Stott PA (Stott, Peter A.)4, Nozawa T (Nozawa, Toru)5, Karpechko AY (Karpechko, Alexey Yu.)1, Hegerl GC (Hegerl, Gabriele C.)6, Wehner MF (Wehner, Michael F.)7, Jones PD (Jones, Philip D.)1
Source: NATURE GEOSCIENCE Volume: 1 Issue: 11 Pages: 750-754 Published: NOV 2008

Abstract: The polar regions have long been expected to warm strongly as a result of anthropogenic climate change, because of the positive feedbacks associated with melting ice and snow(1,2). Several studies have noted a rise in Arctic temperatures over recent decades(2-4), but have not formally attributed the changes to human influence, owing to sparse observations and large natural variability(5,6). Both warming and cooling trends have been observed in Antarctica(7), which the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fourth Assessment Report concludes is the only continent where anthropogenic temperature changes have not been detected so far, possibly as a result of insufficient observational coverage(8). Here we use an up-to-date gridded data set of land surface temperatures(9,10) and simulations from four coupled climate models to assess the causes of the observed polar temperature changes. We find that the observed changes in Arctic and Antarctic temperatures are not consistent with internal climate variability or natural climate drivers alone, and are directly attributable to human influence. Our results demonstrate that human activities have already caused significant warming in both polar regions, with likely impacts on polar biology, indigenous communities(2), ice-sheet mass balance and global sea level(11).

True enough, but there's a certain physical corollary to the attitude; one has obligations to others, and these extend to matters sartorial as well.

There's no trick to choosing spats; they basically only come in grey, fawn and white, and anyone who would wear fawn spats with a blue or grey suit has already banished himself to the outer darkness.

Harlan Sanders considered "Extra Crispy" an abomination and would not eat it. It was "invented" after he sold the company, and due to his contractual agreements he was forced to peddle it.

Darn. That's my favorite. Also the biggest-selling version here in Ohio.

Rather ill-advised. A gentleman's hair ought ever to be well-kempt, of course, short without being shorn, and in its natural color, of course. All that should be applied to the hair is shampoo and water, as needed, of course, and a brush or (for quick maintenance) a comb.

Interesting you made that comment. Where I work, we are doing Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt's "The Visitor" which is a fictional account of a stranger, who claims to be God, visiting the great atheist Freud during the Nazi take over of Austria.

The visitor has a line about listening to Mozart, hearing the music for the first time and wondering what it was and he states... "Mozart... enough to make God believe in man."

Mozart vs. Yoko. Honey bread vs. buzzard shit. Mozart heard God's heart and put it to music. Yoko............ah, never mind.

I have to leave, but I just want to point out that the models you refer to are crap, and therefore repeating them over and over, all around the world, produces nothing but more and more junk science.

Any model that throws out evidence that doesn't lead to the desired conclusion is a deliberate lie. Any model created by somebody who does not understand all aspects of the original system is flawed, and how badly it is flawed can only be guessed.

And by the way, even IF the models are exactly correct, they predict that even if we all immediately reverted to a pre-industrial lifestyle, it would barely make a dent in the system. HUGE costs, VIRTUALLY NO gain. Screw that.

All you have said is that you will completely dismiss what you do not want to hear. All models are not crap. Real measurements go into them, real physics goes into them and they are compared to real measurements afterwords.
