Tiny Desk (Home) Concert From South Korea: Coreyah

The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music’s Tiny Desk (home) concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It’s the same spirit — stripped-down sets, an intimate setting — just a different space.

Bob Boilen | June 30, 2020
This week we’ll publish four Tiny Desk (home) concerts from around the world. We begin in South Korea, where Tiny Desk Concerts are quite popular. In fact, I invited the Korean band SsingSsing to perform in 2017 and that Tiny Desk concert has been viewed more than 5 million times.

Today, I bring you the music of Coreyah. According to the band, the name represents “inheritance,” and that’s evident in the way this six-piece presents old or traditional Korean music with a modern twist. It’s an uninhibited vision of Korean traditional music with some psychedelic rock, Balkan gypsy, even sounds from South America and Africa. You’ll see and hear instruments including the daegeum, a large bamboo flute and geomungo, a large Korean zither that lays on the floor.

When translated into Hangul, the Korean alphabet, Coreyah means “whale,” which is the group’s good luck charm. The music was recorded in the band’s music studio in Seoul, with COVID-19 shutting down most of the country. Strict social distancing is still ongoing in South Korea, though they are streaming their concerts to fans.

And just a note from the band: The geomungo player in this video is Park Dawool, as Coreyah member Na Sunjin was forced to miss this recording due to a personal emergency.

A quick story to tell about my company. I work for a government contractor in Greenville, Tx, one of those large second-tier companies. During to virus, the company has been trying to keep us coming to work as much as we can. We now wear masks everywhere but our cubes. We have a daily online screen that we have to show to the gate guard. There are temperature checking cameras at the entrances to our buildings. And over the last three working days we were told about:
2 people on Friday that had tested positive the prior week
2 people on Monday
4 people on Tuesday

Prior to that we had a report of one a week ago, and 8 scattered from the end of March to the middle of June.

The have made people who came in contact with the positive people self-quarantine.

Looking at the locations, though they never get more specific than a building, it doesn’t currently look like anyone has gotten affected at the company itself. Instead, it was people getting sick outside and coming in with it.

Draw a 40 mile radius circle around Greenville, and you will catch about 98% of the employees, with over 70% being in Greenville and Rockwall. But I suspect a number of them, though not a majority, don’t wear their masks outside of work. The company is full of conservatives. I’ve even seen a QAnon sticker on one car. But as the virus spreads more and more into the rural areas, the more it is going to show up at my job.

hi

Panhandle Public Health District’s Website is down, so no updates from the Old West.

My wife and I went to the store right after we had lunch with her brother and his wife. Mask use seems to be falling off in the area: about 30% of the people in the store (and none of the staff except a few) were using them.

That’s a problem here because of the lack of grocery stores. Within a sixty mile radius I only have the choice of Safeway in Scottsbluff, the co-op in Gering, Sonny’s and the butcher shop in Bridgeport, Safeway in Sidney, the general store here and the one in Dalton (both with limited selection), or the Oshkosh Superette (the only store enforcing distancing, numbers in the store, and masks). It looks like for the near future we will be taking the eighty-mile round trip to Oshkosh for the foreseeable future.

The large number of reports a couple days ago here was traced to a single golf outing at the county golf course. Golf wasn’t the problem (as social distancing is easy with that game, plus outdoors), the problem was the clubhouse and the locker room.

My brother- and sister-in-law are still on the road home to Texas.

My state governor (R-Ameritrade) is back on the idea of bashing “government schools” (public schools) in favour of private schools (his brother owns a chain of private schools).

Oklahoma is still run by conservatives.

If it’s like the Medicaid expansion passed by referendum in Nebraska, they’ll do the same thing as our Republicans. “Okay, so the referendum passed. Now we won’t pass the enabling legislation to enact it.”

Such referenda only demand the state enact legislation to make it happen. Now get Republican legislatures to do it.

The solution is to get rid of the Republican legislators. The problem is the GOP is extremely good at ginning up culture wars to get their voters out so that doesn’t happen, coupled with change scaring the bejesus out of a conservative voter.

Looking at my regional newspaper, it shows the superintendent of schools in Scottsbluff says the school district will open as scheduled.

The most cases of Covid-19 reported here are in the age group 10-19.

This fits in with conservative claims I’ve seen recently that schools “must” open because children “must” be in schools.

Part of the reason my brother-in-law is headed back to Texas now is his school district is requiring normal opening as well (he is a teacher). His wife (an immunologist when she lived in the Soviet Union) sees a disaster for his school district.

She’s been trying to get him to say “nope” because of his heart bypass surgery last year. He is complying with his school district’s return to work order because he is one year away from qualifying for his retirement.

Bill Mitchell claimed a couple months ago he had to go to the hospital for an emergency, where they found a blood clot in one of his lungs.

If that’s true and he’s struggling to breathe in a cloth mask, he should see a doctor right away.

If a mask is too much for him, he could wear a Klan hood bandanna.

When will this guy hang up his bad takes?

CAL THOMAS: DC is already a ‘state’ (Scottsbluff, Nebr. Star-Herald)

“DC,” as it is often abbreviated by locals, is already a “state.” It is a state of corruption, crime, and dysfunction. The only reason Democrats favor the nation’s capital becoming a state is that it would gain two senators, who would almost certainly be Democrats and its “delegate,” Eleanor Holmes Norton, could then vote in the House. Currently she can only participate in committee hearings with the permission of the chairperson.

Why the scare quotes around delegate? She is in fact the delegate. “DC” is abbreviated that way by everyone, not “locals.”

As for DC gaining two senators who are Democrats, could that be because Republican policies are overtly racist, as well as crap?

I have a problem with my co-workers. Most of them in front of supervisors will wear a mask. A good part of them only cover their mouths and leave the nose exposed. When they are away from the supervisors they take off the masks completely. Like an idiot I do not take off my mask until I eat or drink and when I get home.

Here in my area mask use is near 100% and we’re still seeing a surge. It’s probably from bars which have now closed again and churches which are still allowed to hold services. I have friends who have gone to restaurants, I haven’t talked to them since. That was 2 weeks ago. I’m still not venturing out much. I have the blue surgical masks and some KN-95 masks. I have no problem breathing through either.

Since the regional newspaper was too cowardly to print my letter defending freedom of the press from the police last week, maybe they will print this one I just sent (LOL no, the publisher is a Trumpist).

With outlets around the world now reporting on Russia putting bounties on American servicemembers in Afghanistan, no Republican has condemned that action.

The White House Press Secretary has given a dizzying array of excuses, none of which amount to condemnation of Russia or proposals for action. Republican politicians are headed for the exits when questioned. That includes those who represent us in the Panhandle.

Perhaps if Russia has paid the Taliban to kneel before a US flag we would hear performative outrage from the GOP.

I am not the only veteran who is outraged by the GOPs stunning cowardice, hiding behind the Administration’s skirts.

OK, here’s something a little different …

Today is Bobby Bonilla Day!

The former Pittsburgh Pirates and New York Mets player is set to receive $1.19 million dollars today as part of a deferred contract agreement when the Mets bought out the remainder of his contract in 2000. Bonilla has been receiving the annual payments since 2011 and will continue to do so until 2035.

I remember playing blackjack at Caesars Palace in early 2002. Bonilla sat down at my table, having just ended his career after brief stints in Atlanta and St. Louis. Shook his hand and could not believe the size of his meat hooks. And, yes, he was using a match bet coupon at a $25 table.

I used to work for Reggie Jackson’s manager, who negotiated one of the first million-dollar contracts in baseball, and also arranged a deal by which Reggie also got 25 cents from every ticket sold in Yankee Stadium.

Most of that money got invested in real estate in and around Phoenix, Arizona when it was a major boomtown in the 70’s and 80’s…

Meanwhile, in Prague:

The World Health Organization (WHO) warned this week that the pandemic was not even close to being over, but in the Czech Republic, a party has been held to give the coronavirus a “symbolic farewell”.

Thousands of guests sat at a 500 metre-long (1640ft) table on the Charles Bridge in Prague on Tuesday sharing food and drinks they had brought from home.

Guests were encouraged to share with their neighbours and there was no social distancing, something people in countries under lockdown will find hard to relate to.

There have been fewer than 12,000 infections in the Czech Republic, a country of 10 million. About 350 people have died.

The event’s organiser said the celebration was possible due to a lack of tourists in the famously charming city.

bbc.com

There’s still one significant outbreak, stemming from the Darkov coal mine in the city of Karvína (strict restrictions are still in effect there) a smaller outbreak at a nursing home in the city of Liberec (it’s under complete lockdown, and the staff and their families are under lockdown as well) and of course, a declining outbreak in Prague, where some restrictions are still in effect, such as wearing a facemask on public transit.

Everywhere else - including where I live - is entirely back to normal. Had to stop off at Tesco on the way home from work, and the shopping center it’s located in was busy, fairly typical for a Wednesday morning.

Where are they going to be redeployed to? I mean, if they’re gonna move them to Poland or something, eh, that’s not that bad.

The governor of Moravian Silesia floated the idea of leasing Leoš Janaček Airport to the US Air Force; the airport is currently hemorrhaging money and it’s idle most of the time, so he figures, “Hey, might as well put it to good use.” It has a runway long enough to accommodate that big-ass Antonov plane and B-52’s, 747’s and A380’s can land there with no problems whatsoever. It’d be a perfect choice.

And it’d bring some much-needed American $$$ to the region to boot. Win win. The only real obstacles are the Prime Minister, who’s in hock to Russian and Chinese banks for his failing agribusiness and the Czech President, who’s become an inveterate Russophile as he not-so-quietly fades into senility.

Let’s hope so. Also, I’m personally hoping that a Biden Administration will bring the pain to Putin.

Granted, that certainly wouldn’t go down too well with leading Czech politicians, many of whom are still wedded to pan-Slavism; after all, it was 19th century Czech intellectuals who started the pan-Slavist movement and a lot of Czechs are still stuck to that idea…..sadly, because they really have nothing else.

Pan-Slavism is also another form of window dressing for expanding Russian influence in the region, as it has been since the 19th Century. You would think that the Warsaw Pact would have been enough of an object lesson in that.

Let’s hope so. Also, I’m personally hoping that a Biden Administration will bring the pain to Putin.

Granted, that certainly wouldn’t go down too well with leading Czech politicians, many of whom are still wedded to pan-Slavism; after all, it was 19th century Czech intellectuals who started the pan-Slavist movement and a lot of Czechs are still stuck to that idea…..sadly, because they really have nothing else. If pan-Slavism somehow disappeared tomorrow, Czech culture would suffer a profound identity crisis.

It’s interesting what happened in the Slovak Presidential election. I really like President Caputova. What she does is have pro-West and liberal positions like being pro-EU, LGBT, climate change action, etc while also acknowledging the non Slovaks in her country. Her speaking in Rusyn has definitely been appreciated as well. I’m definitely interested in seeing how a Biden administration plans to counteract Putin’s influence in the Slavic countries. I think we really need to expose what a bully tyrant Putin is and how little he actually cares about people and instead his own power. Point out how corrupt the fucker is too.

This has gotta be one of the dumber hopes that the WH has pinned the election on:

The political reporter told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that Trump’s campaign is hoping to dangle a judicial nomination in front of Republican voters, as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell did in 2016 by stalling President Barack Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland.

“There are some people inside of the White house that are around this president who are hoping at this point, knowing that it may not happen, but they are hoping that there might be a Supreme Court vacancy,” Costa said. “Clarence Thomas, the justice since the early ’90s, could decide to retire.”

Imagine going to pissed off wingnuts who think Roberts and Gorsuch are apostates and saying “Give us another 4 years and we’ll put another FedSoc nominee on the bench!” Hell, at this point, there’s a very good chance that no nominee Trump could put forward would win approval if the Dems win back the Senate.

Such as the case of the “tampon” in the Starbucks coffee, where the reporter who “broke” the case tried to lamely insist (after thousands had called bullshit) that the case had to have merit because the cop would be guilty of “filing a false report” if it turned out he’d lied.

The Czechs feel culturally insecure; more than a few Czechs I’ve known over the years have remarked that there’s an inferiority complex at play. They can’t quite decide whether they’re east or west, Slavs or (as one of my favorite students once put it) “Germans who talk funny.”

Of course, it’s up to them to decide. But Czechs are uncertain of themselves and until that gets sorted, one way or the other, it’s going to continue that way.

Oklahoma is still run by conservatives.

If it’s like the Medicaid expansion passed by referendum in Nebraska, they’ll do the same thing as our Republicans. “Okay, so the referendum passed. Now we won’t pass the enabling legislation to enact it.”

Such referenda only demand the state enact legislation to make it happen. Now get Republican legislatures to do it.

The solution is to get rid of the Republican legislators. The problem is the GOP is extremely good at ginning up culture wars to get their voters out so that doesn’t happen, coupled with change scaring the bejesus out of a conservative voter.

You are right of course

Trump seems to be the only holding it up. Even the feckless Senate Republicans are open on this. And yeah I’d love to see them after CMOH winners and other heroes. Fort Dick Winters would also be great.

re: #166 Shiplord Kirel, Friend of Moose and Squirrel

My FB gang was talking about the religious school funding ruling and we started speculating on the schools we could set up to cash in. There were suggestions for various Muslim, Hindu and Pagan schools.
I had two ideas:
1. Satanic Temple High (which we could bill as “the best damn party school you ever heard of.”)
2. Aztec Traditional Middle School, where misbehaving and lazy students could be threatened with sacrifice on the high altar in the cafeteria. This approach would no doubt meet with approval from conservative disciplinarian parents

Summerisle High School, which specializes in producing organic products.

And the King and Queen of the Prom are set alight in a wicker man while the rest of the prom revelers join in singing “Sumer Is Icumen In”.

Or maybe Hälsingland High School, where - in a similar vein - the Prom festivities are like this: (in a private tag for what some might consider disturbing content)

Trump always projects his failures and crimes on to others.

So, when he claims Biden is incompetent, confused, incapacitated, or that Obama committed treason, that’s the tell that Trump is actually, incompetent, confused, incapacitated, and a treasonweasel.

This is all Trump has ever done.

Meanwhile, he’s busy tweeting up a storm again today, attacking NYC and claiming cops support him all while the leading cause of death among cops in 2020 is the hoax (followed by firearms deaths). Two things the GOP doesn’t give a shit about as they move to reopen further and faster than any health expert recommends.

Renaming the military bases is really a slam-dunk. Trump’s resistance is the crudest kind of pandering to an ignorant and bigoted audience. The names will be changed once Cheeto is gone, to Russia if his escape plan works, prison if it does not. The Pentagon should be as forthright as possible in the announcement: “These names were assigned purely to mollify local segregationists during the Jim Crow era, and a change is decades past-due. We have plenty of real heroes for whom they can be named.”

Trump’s great economy, part 666:

Trump’s wrecked the economy and we’re seeing the ripples of his failed covid19 response everywhere. Everywhere except the stock market, which continues to ignore reality and facts on the ground (or Main Street). That will not sustain given how the economic contraction will ultimately wreck earnings on Wall Street, and a bunch of companies have decided they’re not even offering guidance at this point because that’d spook investors too much. The reality is that everyone knows the markets are overvalued, but the millionaire class wants to keep the bubble going as long as possible before they cash out.

Expect it to collapse right around Election Day, just so that Biden gets yet one more thing to have to “fix.”

I mean, honestly, you’re like a reporter for a major — I respect you, Kristen — you’re a reporter for a major network and you’re gnawing on the same bone three days later. Why?”

“It’s not a three-day-old story,” the reporter pressed. “Because there’s a reckoning on race in this country. That’s going on now. And the president still hasn’t come out and condemned it.”

“Condemned what?” Conway interrupted.

“White power,” the reporter said. “It’s a longer story.”

This appeals to Trump, which is all the reason he needs.

I have a student who’s a bit like Trump. He’s terrified of any form of change whatsoever, even though he admits that changes are necessary. He and I can have lively debates; when he once remarked that, “There’s no need for change, as things have been working well for decades now and given us social stability” to which I retorted, “Once upon a time, we used to toss virgins into volcanoes in the name of social stability but you don’t see anyone doing that anymore.” He laughed and conceded the point.

Sometimes, change is necessary and sometimes, that change is painful; we have to look into the mirror and recognize the ugliness within. But we cannot shy away from it - we have to confront it and make efforts to change things, not only for ourselves and our time, but for future generations, so that they may live in a more just and equitable world.

Crazification factor aside, how do you end up with only 67% of poll respondents saying a man with eight years as VP and 30 in the Senate has “the right experience” to be president?

I may not have liked GHWB’s policies, but if you’d asked me in 1988 whether his 8 years as veep, Congressional experience and time as CIA director were the “right experience,” I can’t imagine I’d have said no.

Same with McCain and Dole and Kerry.

The candidates I might have said “no” on the experience question were the ones with little or no federal experience - Dubya, Reagan, Romney. Arguably Carter and Bill Clinton, too.

Obama didn’t have the experience on paper, but his innate skills and life experiences were so exceptional that he transcended the usual ways of thinking.

Governors have executive branch experience. So, even GWB, Reagan, Carter, and Clinton had that. TX and CA are big states, so they would arguably have more experience with a more diverse set of problems/issues than someone from a small state like GA or AR. Senators typically have less experience as leaders, but personal knowledge/experience comes into play - McCain, Dole had decades of leadership roles in the Senate; both had military experience too.

Of all those mentioned, Obama had the least amount of traditional kinds of experiences associated with being a president - no military experience, no executive branch experience at any level, and limited experience in Congress.

Trump had absolutely no experience at all. None. His business experience was that he inherited a real estate business and required bailouts; outside that real estate business, he went ahead and needed bankruptcies and failed outside what he’d consider a core competency.

3.5 years later, he’s still a failure in everything he’s done.

There would be a lot of ancillary costs to renaming the town. To say nothing of all the small businesses that would have to throw out their souvenir inventories and buy new ones.

Today, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security, Chad F.

“DHS is answering the President’s call to use our law enforcement personnel across the country to protect our historic landmarks,” said Acting Secretary Wolf. “We won’t stand idly by while violent anarchists and rioters seek not only to vandalize and destroy the symbols of our nation, but to disrupt law and order and sow chaos in our communities.”

“As we approach the July 4th holiday, I have directed the deployment and pre-positioning of Rapid Deployment Teams (RDT) across the country to respond to potential threats to facilities and property,” said Acting Secretary Wolf. “While the Department respects every American’s right to protest peacefully, violence and civil unrest will not be tolerated.”

You are right of course

Meanehile trump and co are still trying to kill the ACA. They filed that brief last week with scotus.

Tphalf if totally red Oklahoma, that trump won by like 36 points does indeed want Obamacare and the expansion

One would think trying to kick millions off insurance during a pandemic isn’t a winning strategy

.

It is with his base — minorities benefit from the ACA, including the Medicaid expansion, and coronavirus is especially lethal to minorities. His base hates the ACA and salivates at the thought that people of color are harmed.

As has been repeated here many times, Lyndon Johnson’s words:”If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.”

Right, America stayed in the middle of the road despite Mitch’s constant efforts to undermine it in every single fucking way possible. His only regrets are that reconciliation is a one-per-year deal and that it can only be used for budgetary items.

[In November after Biden wins]
Media for the next four years: So Biden won, but why were his supporters so unenthusiastic?

I was once reading a book about the first Gulf War. An officer was asked about morale. He told the interviewer that high morale was not always about smiles or cheering or “hooah!” He further explained that high morale was just as often a quiet determination amongst the team members, all of whom knew their job and could just get down to the business at hand, with no fanfare.

That is Biden’s kind of morale. He knows it. So do we. Doesn’t mean we aren’t happy with him. Doesn’t mean we don’t like him. But, that we are confident enough that we sit down and engage with the things that matter.

I’m in IT. One of the most unusual compliments I’ve ever received in my work, was that it was a pleasure to watch me at a computer, as I looked competent, I looked like I knew very much what I was doing. I’m a nondescript, disabled, autistic. This is shocking to me. But it is very much like this type of morale that the Gulf War officer is referring to.

The “so what” (IMO), is that this shows that the “MSM” is going to stick with its same-old, same-old “horse race” and “both sides” narrative for their campaign/election coverage, and also, obviously, never give up their bedrock principle that “Republican rule” is the only normal situation for American politics, and that anything that contradicts or shades that narrative has to be reflexively countered.

A vote is a vote, whether it is cast with a lot of, or little enthusiasm, indifference, resignation, or nose-holding disgust. What ultimately counts are the number of votes: motivation is only partially relevant.

The world is changing on them rapidly, and they are having trouble adjusting. I suspect some of them would prefer a candidate that shot someone on 5th avenue.

And I’m not saying that West Virginians are dumb yokels. I’m saying rural Republicans love to play that act as they fold over like lawn chairs for right wing bullshit. A real yokel would see Trump for the fake he is.
