An Amazing Piece by Antoine Dufour on a Gorgeous Guitar: “30 Minutes in London” - «The Tree» Guitar

Music • Views: 29,459

YouTube

Here’s me playing a song called 30 Minutes in London on a Beauregard OM guitar belonging to Jamie who has ordered this wonderful custom guitar with the back and sides made from «The Tree», a very special Mahogany. I recorded this with Ernie Ball Aluminum/Bronze strings, no pickup used and using an MS microphone placement: Royer R10 as M and a Charter Oak E700 as the S.

HBO has a special they occasionally run about Latin American influence in America. It was mainly focused on music. There were a few things I found interesting in it. The first is that the United States is now the second largest Spanish speaking country in the world.

The second piece was about José Feliciano, he of “Feliz Navidad” fame. He was born blind but became a really good guitarist. His first hit was a cover of the Doors “Light My Fire” with a Latin sound. From what they described, it was a big hit. So big, that eventually, he was asked to perform the National Anthem at a baseball game. When he performed that, though, also with a Latin sound, he was blacklisted. Radio stations stopped playing his music up until “Feliz Navidad”.

The disingenuousness remains exhausting.

The problem isn’t that we’re not listening. It’s that we’re told we have to listen at the expense of every single other viewpoint, ever, or we’re somehow ‘stifling free speech’ or proving ‘why Trump won’.

Meanwhile, left-wing/Democratic opinion is almost wholly erased from coverage at this point except to erect strawmen. And it continues to fucking happen.

And English people restricted a lot of movement here for a while and English grew much faster than other languages, but there are now a lot of people here who claim Spanish as their first or second language.

The default assumption of good faith extended toward anyone spouting the right-wing line, while simultaneously treating any critique from the left with contempt and suspicion by default has got us where we are today. The constant rewarding of bad faith has empowered the worst of us into a self-feeding system that I’m not sure we’re going to break out of within my lifetime.

en.wikipedia.org
Eva Longoria’s Finding Our Roots results:

According to research done in 2010 by Harvard professor and Faces of America host Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Longoria’s oldest identifiable Spanish immigrant ancestor is her ninth great-grandfather, Lorenzo Suárez de Longoria (b. Oviedo, 1592), who immigrated to the Viceroyalty of New Spain (modern-day Mexico) in 1603. His family was based in a small village called Llongoria, Belmonte de Miranda, Asturias, Spain. Longoria is the Castellanized form of this Asturian-language surname.

In 1767, her seventh great-grandfather received almost 4,000 acres (16 km2) of land along the Rio Grande in a land grant from King Charles III of Spain. The family retained this land for more than a century. After the US-Mexican border was moved southwards in the aftermath of the Mexican-American War, the land ended up on the American side of the border. Her family had to deal with the influx of United States settlers following the Mexican-American War and the American Civil War.[110]

For comparison purposes… the Mayflower was 1620.

Guys, seriously, the Spider-Man PS4 exclusive from Insomniac is really goddamned good. Like, possibly worth buying a PS4 Pro for it alone good. The web slinging is amazing, the open world Manhattan Island is huge, detailed, immersive and well crafted. The combat is fluid like the Arkham games but massively more frenetic, three dimensional and insane.

My only gripe is that the New York environment is so good that I wish there were were side missions and random ground level interactions with the locals available a la Sega’s Yakuza franchise. Like, I wish you could go into an arcade as Spider-Man and play the 1991 Sega Spider-Man arcade game.

America, 2018:

Letter to the Editor: An Appeal for Creationism

Deep within our nation’s venerated “halls of ivy” lurk some ideas that are anything but true. So as school days are upon us there is need for a call to vigilance lest truth becomes lost in the shuffle of feet going from class to class to earn treasured grades needed for a bright future. Ideas have consequences.

The truths in danger are those of hope in the eternal God, who calls us and equips us for a journey of opportunity where we learn to sift good from evil and win eternal rewards through faith in him.

[…]

Meanwhile, from Arizona: Riggs, Hoffman advance in race for superintendent of public instruction

[…]

While much of the primary campaign featured challengers attacking Douglas and her record, the question of teaching evolution versus creationism also came up, particularly after Douglas had proposed making changes in the science curriculum.

Riggs said during the campaign he believes that the scientific theory of evolution belongs in anthropology or biology classes. But he also had a religious spin of sorts in what students should learn.

“They absolutely have to learn that our Founding Fathers believed in a Creator — they put it in the Declaration of Independence,” he said.

Riggs that, as well as the concept of “intelligent design,” should be taught in history and government classes, even if it means having one theory taught in science class and another in civics.

Hoffman, by contrast, called it “appalling” that Douglas sought to remove several references to the word “evolution” from the science standards.

Missouri college volleyball team replaces its Nike uniforms

A women’s college volleyball team in Missouri played in gray T-shirts after the college dropped Nike uniforms over the company’s decision to select Colin Kaepernick as the face of its new advertising campaign.

The College of the Ozarks volleyball team wore t-shirts during Friday’s match instead of the maroon long-sleeved jerseys that contained the Nike swoosh, The Springfield News-Leader reported.

The new attire came days after the College of the Ozarks President Jerry Davis said in a statement that the school would “choose its country over company” and remove Nike’s logo from its athletic uniforms.

[…]

If Nike is ashamed of America, we are ashamed of them,” Davis said in a statement. “We also believe that those who know what sacrifice is all about are more likely to be wearing a military uniform than an athletic uniform.”

This will also tell you exactly what their core philosophy is:

In the 2003-2004 semesters a professor revealed that one of the college’s deans, Larry Cockrum, had received his Ph.D. from Crescent City Christian College, a fraudulent college (“diploma mill”) run out of a coach’s basement.[17] The professor who brought this information to light was suspended for the 2004 semester, and his contract was not to be renewed for the fall semester.[18] The college’s president, Jerry C. Davis, defended the dean with the fraudulent degree, while terminating the professor.[19] Cockrum has been appointed to a new position as president of The University of the Cumberlands.[20]

Seems like they have no issues with credential inflation/fake credentials.

HBO has a special they occasionally run about Latin American influence in America. It was mainly focused on music. There were a few things I found interesting in it. The first is that the United States is now the second largest Spanish speaking country in the world.

The second piece was about José Feliciano, he of “Feliz Navidad” fame. He was born blind but became a really good guitarist. His first hit was a cover of the Doors “Light My Fire” with a Latin sound. From what they described, it was a big hit. So big, that eventually, he was asked to perform the National Anthem at a baseball game. When he performed that, though, also with a Latin sound, he was blacklisted. Radio stations stopped playing his music up until “Feliz Navidad”.

Interesting. That didn’t slow down José Feliciano’s career in PR and Latin America. He kept making album after album. Nowadays he’s basically retired.

Here’s a tribute special that Banco Popular did to him: Jose Feliciano—Guitarra Mia—BPPR (varios artistas)

This is what happened from the week before through the week after I was born:

Former U.S. Attorney General John N. Mitchell, former presidential Chief of Staff H. R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman were found guilty by a jury or 9 women and 3 men, on charges of conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and perjury in the cover-up of the Watergate scandal. Robert C. Mardian, a fourth defendant, was found guilty on one count of conspiracy.[1][2]

The Wiz, a musical adaptation of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz with an African-American cast, opened on Broadway. It would go on to win two Tony Awards and run for 1,672 performances.[21]

The game show Wheel of Fortune, created by Merv Griffin and inspired by the children’s game “Hangman”, premiered on NBC at 10:30 am Eastern time. The original hosts were Chuck Woolery and Susan Stafford, who would be replaced in 1982 by Pat Sajak and Vanna White, respectively.[25]

The Boston Globe broke an exclusive story that Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev was going to arrive in Boston’s Sidney Farber Cancer Center to receive treatment for leukemia.[32] The hospital, the Kremlin and the White House quickly denied the story [33] and the Globe soon admitted that it had been the victim of a hoax.[34] Brezhnev, who did not have leukemia and who was not coming to the United States, would live on until 1982.

The Queen Elizabeth 2 began its first round-the-world cruise, departing New York City under tight security with 1,200 passengers.[41]

Caryn Campbell vanished while walking from the lobby to her room at the Wildwood Inn at Snowmass, Colorado. She was the 15th victim of serial killer Ted Bundy, but the first for whose murder he ever stood trial.[46]

The House Un-American Activities Committee, most notable for its investigations and accusations of Communist infiltration of Hollywood, was disbanded by the U.S. House of Representatives after 37 years. In 1969, it had been renamed the “Committee on Internal Security”.[52]

Concur.

Academia is all too self-serving, and this has caused a serious blindness in the politics of the likes of Sanders.

Stodgy old me - more can be done in the tax-supported 12 years of education than now happens in many schools.

I’ll even go out on a limb and claim that in America we under-educate our children, compared to the best education in other countries in the developing world.

And I’m not going to blame school teachers. Rather, it’s the American cultural practice of using school as babysitters.

Not quite sure where you’re going with that. At one level, schools are obviously babysitters. They’re looking after our kids for most of the hours we’re at work. But, they’re also professional educators. While I could teach my kids, it would take up most of my time, and I’m a better contributor as a software developer.

As for what the kids are learning, there are basics they need to learn, some of which we’ve cut in the need to get them ready for being an employee. We need to offer the basics, and then offer them the ability to go to trade school - yes, trade school - or college after that. We don’t really need them to jump into the major workforce until they are ready. And we should pay for all education. I even think we should offer taxpayer paid continuing education classes for every level (evenings or weekends at high schools). We’re going to pay for it one way or another, so we might as well do it when it’s cheap.

Large classroom sizes are just ways to warehouse children for 7 or 8 hours per day.

Learning, on the other hand, comes from interacting with another who is older/smarter/wiser than oneself.

Instead of spending hundreds of billions of dollars on “free” college education, as a society I propose we’ll be better off if we put that money into primary schools where children can be taught in small groups with a well-trained teacher.

I kept waiting for the scene at the end of Giant where an inebriated James Dean takes out a whole row of tables. I looked for a YouTube clip but I couldn’t find one.

Depending on the local laws, that still might be a bit too lenient. The circumstances are still kinda muddy….Hard for me to conceive of circumstances where the shooting was not intentional.

Any ‘murder’ charge requires evidence of intent. That’s basically why Zimmerman wasn’t convicted for killing Trayvon Martin.

Dory and Rango are really starting to play with each other. Rango will start it by taking a toy to his bed, but Dory will zoom over and get there first, then she’ll roll over on her back and paw at his face with all 4 paws. Rango ‘Howrowrowr’s at her the whole time. Today, she waited till he looked away then ZOOMED behind the chair and emerged from the side. She was on her hind legs, dancing toward him with her front paws up, and when he’d get his face in range she’d start pawing at it.

Rango got his revenge, when she dropped a toy she was dragging past his bed. He reached over and snagged it without even getting up, then curled around it.
