Trevor Gordon Hall: “Chase the Chills” (Exquisite Solo Acoustic Guitar)

Music • Views: 17,608

YouTube

Trevor Gordon Hall’s tone is absolutely gorgeous in this video. Sumptuous, even.

“Chase the Chills” - opening track from the 2021 full length album “This Beautiful Chaos” with GRAMMY Award-winning Corin Nelsen (SynchroSonic Productions)

In preparation for every album, I work hard for months, sometimes years, to get each song I have composed and am about to record just right. Inevitably though, there is always one that somehow emerges at the last minute whole and complete. I don’t know why and I never force it, but it has happened enough times that it is sort of a tradition in album prep now . This spontaneous “Bonus-tune” helps me zoom out, put everything in perspective and remember what the whole thing is really all about for me. It has become a life philosophy when I feel stuck musically (or in anything really) and don’t quite know what to do next. Just continue to ‘Chase the Chills’ and it will be fine.

This was how various white supremacist groups got shut down. Bankrupted by big judgments. This one is pretty significant. I wonder if they’ll try to appeal to reduce the punitive damages but ultimately I think it stands.

They deserve to be bankrupted. It pairs nicely with the moral bankruptcy of those fuckers and their enablers from Trump on down.

I have so many queues and chats to check during my work day, and I finally looked at my email at the end of the day and … my evil too big to fail employer, in addition to tripling down on the We Are All Going To Work In An Office Building, We Don’t Care are requiring a fully up to date vaccine card to be uploaded. Or you’ll have to do weekly testing. Blergh. It’s still not safe.

I’ll upload the vaccine card, but I’m still not going into that den of disease.

Well, he’s definitely that. Someone thought they could use him to be a voice of reason in the GOP - that was equally stupid. He’s not educated enough to understand the difference between Lin Wood and Mike Lindell - one who financed him and another who probably would have fucked up his legal hopes, but both of whom want to surf his fifteen minutes of fame for personal gain.

Greg Abbott, running scared.

“…The ad’s first deceptive edit deleted key O’Rourke words to make it sound like he had issued a broad, unreserved endorsement of Black Lives Matter activists for bringing attention to the idea of defunding the police. O’Rourke’s actual words were narrower: he praised the activists for bringing attention to the idea of defunding “line items that have overmilitarized our police.”

The second deceptive edit deleted key words to make it sound like O’Rourke had called for “dismantling” police departments, end of story. He had actually called for dismantling “and rebuilding” departments in “some necessary cases.”
The third deceptive edit was especially egregious. This one mashed together phrases from three different O’Rourke sentences. The stitch job made it sound like an O’Rourke comment about the importance of Black Lives Matter activism, and how it is part of a tradition of civil rights activism, was a comment about the importance of defunding the police and dismantling police departments.

For emotional effect, the ad juxtaposed O’Rourke’s altered words with a series of video clips of rioting and looting.”

Conservatives and climate crisis deniers on Twitter are buzzing about rumors (based on something MTG said) that Nancy Pelosi bought a waterfront “retirement” mansion in Florida.
Which obviously proves everything negative they wanted to think about San Francisco, and disproves the possibility of sea level rise. Is any legitimate news outlet reporting this? I can’t find the story anywhere other than highly suspect sources.

If they made a decent pizza fine, but damn, little caesar’s is easily the worst chain pizza I have ever had. A while back I was in a hurry and decided to pick up one of those hot n ready pizzas and it was literally worse than gas station pizza that’s been sitting under a heat lamp all day.

I found it preferable to Dominoes, Pizza Hut or Pappa Johns. Yeah, it’s more like breadsticks squished flat with sauce and a little cheese and pepperoni but that’s still better than the other three to me. Was my boy’s favorite and cheap, too.

That said there’s a lovely place I found in Memphis that has flatbread crust that you then order the sauce, toppings, etc almost like at a sub sandwich shop, they toss it in a very hot oven for just a short bake and it’s glorious. What was that name… < googles >

Specifically, Williams writes that Trump should be nervous that the court “notified lawyers for Trump, the House committee and the National Archives that they should be prepared to address whether the court even has the legal authority to hear the dispute.”

In other words, it seems the court is already telegraphing that it may not have jurisdiction in the case, which would mean that the earlier ruling against Trump would stand.

Copy pasta babbling and baffling bulkshit. The US Supreme Court is the court of original jurisdiction only for matters between the states. An individual cannot go directly to the Supreme Court without going through the process of all the lower courts. It’s just not how any of this works.

All true, of course, but are the mouthbreathing goobers who think of Mike Lindell as some sort of genius “warrior for freedom” or whatever going to know the facts- or care??

Very strong recommendation, because I suspect a lot of lizards are also Kurt Vonnegut fans, given his appeal to iconoclasts and rebels: the new “Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time” doc is so worth seeing.

It hits all the points you’d want a good author doc to hit, covering his whole career with lots of interviews and archival footage, but it’s also intertwined with the director’s own story of befriending Vonnegut and then struggling for decades with how to address that in the film, plus some twists about family and relationships that I won’t spoil here.

It’s in limited release in theaters and streaming on the usual platforms, for five or six bucks. Really good stuff.

That paella(?) pan looks to be made out of lined copper - always expensive for cookware - and at some toney kitchen store in Paris (not exactly a bargain-shopper’s destination) I’d say $375 is nowhere near exorbitant. Especially as it will probably outlast all of the Harris and Emhoff families by decades….

And while it may seem pricey, dropping $600 at an upscale cookware outlet isn’t all that hard to do (this clown been to a Sur La Table recently??).

I have lots of lined Le Creuset skillets, pots, dutch ovens, and associated cast iron cooking bits I’ve acquired over the years. I also have a fair amount of raw cast iron cookware.

Quite frankly, I’ve never paid $375 for a piece of cookware and I never will. Mostly because I bought it years and years ago.

But I will tell you that a well-seasoned cast iron dutch oven that costs $50 new will do as good a job on the stovetop or in the oven as a new $375 Le Creuset equivalent.

Winters in Salt Lake City are what pushed me to go to and stay in Phoenix (besides my ex-bf and parents living here). Every winter there was about a month or so when there would be a stationary inversion in the Salt Lake Valley, the temperature would hover in the 10s-20s F and it was warmer in Park City and the ski resorts. Oh, and the Not Seeing The Sun For A Month Or More was hell on my depression. I was reminded of how much I hate overcast days because today was a gloomy, overcast day in Phoenix.

One of my coworkers messaged me after work and let me know that our former senior manager, who retired in August 2016, died over the weekend of a massive heart attack. She was only a year older than me. The reason I remember when Heidi retired is because it was a month before the shit hit the fan at the evil too big to fail employer and more than a couple of us wondered if she knew what was coming (dunno how but hey) or if it was just sheer coincidence. At least she had five years of playing golf with her husband and working in her garden. Man, life is short and it can end suddenly.

A quick check of the article shows that it’s an even deeper lake of bullshit than just that. It’s not that she spent a bunch of money on cookware, it’s that she did it in France, which is somehow a betrayal of the American worker and further evidence that she’s totally not fit to be VP.

Honestly, the whole business with China developing a hypersonic missile reminds me of the “missile gap” that the US supposedly faced during the early days of the Cold War. The Soviets lacked the technology to build strategic bombers that could reliably defeat the US defense network, and what bombers they did have were largely derivatives of outdated US tech as the newly-minted Air Force was rolling out first-gen jet bombers with second-gen bombers in the works. So they went big with ICBMs, as they would be (at the time) virtually impossible to defend against and could carry the massive nukes that Soviet tech could not yet miniaturize.

Of course, the reality is that the “gap” never existed, but both sides exploited it to their own ends. The Soviet launchers took hours to prep, they were all scouted out by spy planes within a matter of months, and were reliant upon those huge warheads because they were wildly inaccurate. But screaming about the “gap” helped the MIC get fence-sitters to vote for wildly larger defense budgets to build up US ICBM numbers, with launchers that were quicker to prep, easier to hide, and were smaller due to the US lead in developing smaller nukes.

tl;dr: China’s wagging its dick around because it has neither a competent strategic bomber force or enough ballistic missile subs to be seen as more than a regional threat.

So what we used to do back in the 1970’s:

Mix up a packet of Jello, with just a bit too little water. As it cools in the refrigerator wait until it starts to set - when it starts to become thick.

Then take the bowl out of the fridge and whip the jello on high with an electric hand mixer. Keep the bowl cold. The mixture will be quite foamy.

Then mix in some cut fruit, small pieces. Fold into the jello, don’t use the hand mixer.

Put back in the fridge to the coolest part so it sets quickly.

Then you can enjoy a super-foamy jello creation!

It was a strange time.

The big thing that has to be kept in mind is that US threat analyses depend a lot upon estimates and sheer guesswork that doesn’t always pan out. And that the media are often getting fed such stories not because somebody wants to sound the alarm, but because somebody wants to stir the pot in order to make their proposal for a new wunderwaffe look less like a massively expensive white elephant and more like a sound investment.

Example: Reagan demanding a “600 ship navy” based upon US intel insisting the Soviets were going on a building and modernization binge in the early 80s, only to come back after the Wall fell to admit that their analysis had largely been based upon Soviet propaganda and wild-assed guessing.

Love-Child of Cassandra and Sisyphus  Nov 24, 2021 • 1:43:45am

Over the past year or so I’ve ranted at length about housing, in particular real estate prices and the skyrocketing prices of residences.

About a month ago PBS’s Youtube channel Two Cents did an entry about this:

Will the Housing Bubble Burst?

It’s ok as far as describing some big problems but it falls way short in understanding what is happening in American society.

It also has an ideological bent that I think is blinding the hosts from uncovering some very difficult items about life.

Yes, there is not enough stock being offered up for sale.

But no, this is not about a lack of land in general in the US.

Housing in San Francisco is high because there is no more room. Adding more apartment buildings won’t help because there is no room to build the additional infrastructure in that small county. It’s the tip of a peninsula that is forever limited to what it can handle. Much like Manhattan. Yes, Manhattan has rail that allows for greater number of people to move around, but that is thanks to the 19th century planners in that city.

San Francisco is doomed to have major earthquakes every now and then. This defines what it can ever become.

California has high real estate because there is competition for the land. All over the state.

And this is what the video really misses - prices really are a reflection of demand and supply. Not just supply.

While it is a favorite hobby horse of activists to blame single family residence ordinances for the ills of Americans, I think that such assignment of causes is too easy and frankly false.

Yes, housing restrictions were often exploited as tools of racists.

But that does not mean housing restrictions have no other purpose.

Our housing prices reflect what we want.

No matter how much freshly-minted-from-university critics want to deride single-family housing, it is what many people want.

The video claims that the National Association of Realtors says we need to build 2.1M houses every year for a decade to have enough stock.

What the video fails to mention is that NAR is a sales organization. Realtors (a trademark that has been very successfully implanted into the minds of Americans) make money by selling houses.

What the video does not disclose is that structure count is high in the US.

We are not short of structures.

High prices reflect a choice in how we live that is beyond the trope of blaming racists.

What the video also doesn’t explore is what function a piece of real estate plays as a primary residence.

It’s more, much more, than just keeping the rain off of our heads.

We Americans have designed our society so that the primary tool of savings is our primary residence.

One’s house/condo often represents nearly all the complete asset of an individual’s net worth.

To prevent a financial crisis, we’ve designed an economy where we can’t let housing prices fall down.

Other items’ prices are allowed to fluctuate greatly. From gold to grains to belts, prices go up and down all the time.

But we can’t allow that for our houses. We don’t allow it.

And so we create a price structure for housing that is overwhelmingly strongly tilted to an ever raising price for a house (and land rents in general.)

So this long ramble gets me to a bottom line: land rents are very much a reflection of the wealthy in our society. Land banking is one of the foundations of how the wealthy stay that way.

For quite some time, millennia, human life has been about fighting over land. Whether it’s a land war in Asia or pricing of your local housing stock, you are competing with your fellow humans.

And simply adding apartment buildings to every lot in a city won’t lower prices.

I dare any activist who has fixated on housing zones as the cause of high housing prices to show me evidence that adding more multi-family dwellings per square mile has caused land rents to go down.

Show me. Show me the data. (hint: they can’t.)

It seems a few years back began the trendy thing for shiny young progressives to fixate themselves on housing ordinances in cities/counties.

What a way to double notch your belt: hit racism and high rent prices all in one villain.

Alas, I think it’s a false quest, sort of like that thing with windmills.

However, it’s easier to blame housing regs than to tackle the systemic issue of how we humans work: by hierarchy.

The other night I was rambling on here about not getting the Canon (camera) software to load on my Mac.

No matter what I tried.

Looking for a different application tonight, I looked in an old “Applications” folder on another drive (no longer my boot drive - this was a recovered drive from an old backup.) Sure enough in that Applications folder were a bunch of programs, including the Canon imaging software.

So I tried to run Digital Photo Professional (the Canon software to use their camera raw data files)… and it runs just fine.

Sigh.

Here’s a thought; let’s make it easier for people to immigrate to the U.S. to work.

……..

Given the existence of the Senate filibuster, Republican opposition means the Democrats’ only real hope of delivering on this issue is to include something in the unfilibusterable reconciliation bill. And that, in turn, means that immigration reform has to have a substantive budgetary effect. The blue team tried to sell Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough on a plan to provide 8 million undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship, and she said “no way, José.” Then they tried to pitch a proposal to update the national immigration registry and to grant green cards to millions of undocumented workers. That also got a negative response from the parliamentarian.

On Tuesday, Democratic staffers met with the Parliamentarian yet again. Their new plan is to issue work permits for millions of undocumented immigrants that would allow them to be paid above the table, and would also afford them protection from being deported. And it could be that the third time is the charm, because after the presentation, MacDonough did not say “no.” She didn’t say “yes,” either, but given that the last two proposals didn’t even get out of the starting gate, the Democrats see this as progress.

She’s not wrong. People want immediate gratification. They’ve been conditioned to see cases resolved in under an hour thanks to CSI, Law & Order, and that entire genre of shows. DNA evidence solves the case and prosecutors get the outcomes they want within minutes of presenting the case.

The reality is quite different. It takes months of work to build cases in complex scenarios - and this is the most complex case the DOJ has ever had to take on because of the unique nature of the participants from the president on down. You don’t act with haste, even though the political needs are such that you want to get this resolved before Trump can get back in power and scuttle the whole thing.

Every measurable statistic about the economy is good except for having to pay a few pennies more for some things which happens to currently be a global issue. I guess that kind of thing happens as the world tries to move on from a global pandemic. But people are generally too fucking stupid to understand why other than “government”.

GMA was talking to the CEO of Kroger, and the interviewer was trying to get him to talk about how bad the supply chain was.
“Can you tell me about things you are short on?”
“We’ve got plenty of turkeys, ham, and the other things, though you might have to substitute for fresh cranberries. But we’ve got plenty for people.”
“You mentioned cranberry shortages. Are there any others you’re not telling me about that people should be worried about?”
“Not really, no.”

They had plenty of fresh cranberries at our Kroger.

RE supply chain. I was at Fred Meyers (Kroger owned) yesterday and the only thing that they didn’t have was my sour cream. But that’ wasn’t a big deal as they don’t carry the brand I like anyway. But there was plenty of everything else. They even had a turkey breast I could eat on my (current) soft food diet. The thing that irritates me the most is I forgot to pick up a bag of celery for the stuffing.

Kim Jong Un keeps Kim Jong Uning…

Last week, Radio Free Asia reported that copies of Squid Game had been smuggled into North Korea on USB drives and SD cards. Now, according to RFA, a man who is said to have smuggled in the show has been sentenced to death by a firing squad.

Sources tell RFA that a North Korean student who purchased the USB drive has been given a life sentence, while six others who watched the show must serve five years hard labor. Teachers and administrators at the school have been fired, expelled from the Workers’ Party, and could end up being exiled to work in remote mines.

“This all started last week when a high school student secretly bought a USB flash drive containing the South Korean drama Squid Game and watched it with one of his best friends in class,” a source in law enforcement in North Hamgyong province is quoted as telling RFA’s Korean Service.

“The friend told several other students, who became interested, and they shared the flash drive with them.” Government censors received a tip, and the students were arrested.

How she even managed to get to her flight without getting arrested is pretty amazeballs…

“The woman, later identified as Alspaugh, had been involved in a prior incident at the security checkpoint, police said. During that incident, Alspaugh reportedly attempted to punch another passenger that pointed out Alspaugh was not wearing her mask, police said. The other passenger refused to press charges and Alspaugh proceeded to board her flight,” the network reported.

I see that price “with card”. Here bonus shopping points can be used to purchase a turkey. It breaks down to 400 points which would mean 40 cents off a gallon of gas.
Or the bird.

If she’d been caught after the plane got off the ground, this is probably what would’ve happened. A passenger getting violent in the cabin would be cause for the captain to request an emergency diversion to the nearest airport, with the passenger getting arrested upon landing. And probably some words from the captain and flight crew for all the FAA paperwork they’re now responsible for as a result of her shenanigans.

Every time someone raises this possibility I think about a ride I took on a DC-3 during my first trip to the Brazilian back country in 1978. There are many fine examples of this great old aircraft still flying. This wasn’t one of them. It had a cargo interior with fold down canvas seats on the sides. It was the last line of backwoods transport, which is very backwoodsy indeed in Brazil. They would take anyone, and anything that would pay and could fit through the door. One old guy got on with a crate of chickens, gifts for his son he was going to visit. They did have a steward, a pleasant young chap who served snacks and cans of soda and local beer (pretty good). He looked like a pro wrestler, though, and the plane was un-pressurized. I had the distinct idea that his real job was to chuck would-be hijackers or unruly passengers out the door.

Played banjo at a Shakey’s as a side job during my 1960s college days.

Learned a lot of old time sing along songs, and from time to time a fight would break out (benches and chairs make a unique sound when they’re pushed back in anger).

Ruby, the piano player, would react by reaching for her gun in her purse, and siting with my back to the wall, I’d just watch. As I full well knew that anyone who approached Ruby would be shot without hesitation. Ruby once told me that if she were a man, she’d either be dead or in jail.

“Donald Trump and his allies are starting to dangle the threat of the speakership over House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s head, teeing up a yearlong dynamic that is already emboldening the MAGA wing of the GOP conference and influencing the California Republican’s decision-making as he crafts a strategy to win back the House next year,” CNN reports.

“Some in Trump’s orbit have even floated the wild — but technically possible — idea that the former President should make a play for the gavel. While it’s a highly unlikely scenario, the fact it’s even being teased in some conservative circles is putting McCarthy on notice and reminding Republicans of the leverage Trump still has over the party.”

MAGAts have the historical memory of a sand flea and it’s been more than 12 years since the last fatal airline crash in the US (Colgan Air Flight 3407). They probably have no idea how dangerous their airborne antics really are.
In my admittedly biased opinion, any practical level of force is justified to neutralize a disruptive passenger. I don’t see anything wrong with using tasers and duct tape, if not handcuffs and leg irons, in these situations. Anyone has the right to restrain a violent felon until law enforcement arrives (or you arrive where they are).
It’s odd that the MAGAts are all for arming teachers, principals, and jerks on the street but arming flight attendants would give them the DTs. The rules are different when privileged white assholes might find themselves in the line of fire though.

One reason I believe has been that our local media is actually full of different colors of humans. The local ABC lost a beloved anchor, a woman of color named Jovita Moore to breast cancer. The outpouring of love and concern here for her was amazing to be honest. The coverage of this has been fact based and not full of bullshit like the rittenhouse case.

The other night I was rambling on here about not getting the Canon (camera) software to load on my Mac.

No matter what I tried.

Looking for a different application tonight, I looked in an old “Applications” folder on another drive (no longer my boot drive - this was a recovered drive from an old backup.) Sure enough in that Applications folder were a bunch of programs, including the Canon imaging software.

So I tried to run Digital Photo Professional (the Canon software to use their camera raw data files)… and it runs just fine.

Sigh.

I guess I’ll just use this older version.

These creations of ours, the maze of software which are now the tools of our contemporary software, will be the doom of us.

I have a Mac (MB063LL/B) Snow Leopard, 4 /3GB Ram, which works perfectly fine, but has become unusable.

Can’t update any browsers to enable accessing customer web based data programs.

Figured, OK , load Ubuntu specified for that Mac, and use it for my shell account, maintain my meager Bash/BSD chops, read usenet and email.

Nope - neither myself or the local MAC guru were able to do so.

It’s just a pretty black paperweight.

re: #331 Dopamine Fish

I want to get right out in front of one thing: Yes, these men are evil. Yes, they did an evil thing. Yes, I’m glad they’re being punished and that justice is being served. No, I am NOT okay with the conditions they may suffer during their lifetime of imprisonment. Nobody deserves to be degraded and broken, no matter how heinous their crimes. Maybe that makes me soft, but whatever. Prison jokes are rapidly becoming a hard line in the sand for me.

I agree. Inhumane prison conditions just creates hardened criminals.

All you should ever use when eating eastern shore blue crabs is a knife. Possibly some pointy thing. Mallets are just wrong. Vinegar and Old Bay, and butter if you’re weak, are permitted for dipping.

I’m thinking that the Red States having low unemployment might have something to do with a shitton of their citizens dying, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Mallet for the claws. Gently crack them. Science. I/we use my/our fingers for everything else.
Slathered in Old Bay.
No butter.
No vinegar.

I am guessing that for the next couple of years Fox News is going to show a great deal of interest in improving prison conditions because of their new crop of residents, inshallah.

Improving conditions for the correctly colored people.

Agreed. One commentator mentioned that they will probably ask to plead to Federal Charges so they can spend their time in The Big Fed Greybar Motel in Atlanta rather than be put into the Georgia system where their lives would be brutish, viscous, and short.

They’re talking about that over at Balloon Juice, and someone had the best response to the insurrectionists: may they stay in jail until prison reform is enacted.

Though they would’ve gotten away with it if they hadn’t been stupid enough to videotape their crime.

Nah, it’s worse than that, they would have probably gotten away with it if their own damned attorney hadn’t leaked the video under the (hilariously bad) belief that it would bolster his client’s claims of innocence.

And by viscous, do you mean they’ll be smeared across the yard like a spilled can of oil?

re: #287 darthstar

I’ve got cooking and cleaning them down to a science. I’ll boil four or five of them, rip the shells off over the sink under running cool water and throw all the guts & shit into a bag. Dungies are great because you can crack most of them with your fingers…just keep a small bowl for shells as you go.

Or go old school and lay out a bunch of newspaper and let everyone tear at them like savages. Either way is good.

On newspaper with crab dip, sliced tomatoes and french fries

I suspect they’re changed their mind whether capital punishment should be a legal penalty in the state of Georgia.
