Who doesn’t like a black and white landscape image? Especially when the landscape itself is black and white:

Note that places where the lava last pooled are still too hot for snow to stick.

And the crater itself has clearly crumbled quite a bit.

re: #28 jaunte

A lot of stupid American white men view Putin as just another white man fighting for white man’s rights, manifest destiny or something similarly simplistic and idiotic. The facts are by word and deed, Putin is specifically a Russian Nationalist, who views anyone not the right-sort-of-Russian as somehow “different” and implicitly inferior. Everyone else in the world lacks the “Russian soul.”

This is where we are. Our white male supremacists in America are so in hate with everyone that they are willing to side with someone who wants all of us gone, or diminished in some capacity. The road is long in how we got to this point, but it should have been put into a coffin back in the 1860’s.

Okay, so here’s a thing you all should know.

Russia is run by 100 families. They are a kleptocracy. They have pretty much ruled Russia, on and off, since the 1917 revolution. Certain families climb up, certain families get destroyed. They have rebuilt their power since Stalin’s death. Putin is the first among equals, a spokesman for the 100 families.

But.

And this is the vital thing you must understand about Russia. Vladimir Putin is an At Will employee who is the Public Mouthpiece of the 100 families.

If he fucks up, he will be cast aside like a bag of reeking garbage.

And this is what we are facing in Ukraine.

He is trying to bluff NATO, and he has no backup plan if NATO tells him to stick a rusty T-54 seventy-five millimeter tank barrel up his ass.

Are the 100 families willing to risk nuclear annihilation over Ukraine?

Oh, hell no. And if Putin pushes the envelope, he may well get defenestrated.

This, to me, is why the solidarity of the west in support of Ukraine is so vital. It’s being expressed by the shipments of weapons and ammo and now I see at NPR (npr.org) that we have 8500 troops on alert. That’s not a big number by any means but it’s enough to be a significant symbol of US support.

Someone needs to stand behind Putin and whisper “remember the Winter War” in his ear.

Neil Young/Spotify
“Neil Young Wants His Music Off Spotify Over Joe Rogan Vaccine Misinformation - ‘They can have Rogan or Young. Not both.’”: bit.ly

What I hate about anti-vaxxers is they don’t know how to use Google.

Today two guys sent me e-mail about Alex Berenson, how he’s providing excellent data, he’s the authority.

If you Google Mr. Berenson, you’ll find out that he’s been banned from Twitter for Covid misinformation and is constantly on Fox spewing falsehoods.

Check it out:

“Twitter Bans Conservative author Alex Berenson”: bit.ly

And:

“The Pandemic’s Wrongest Man - In a crowded field of wrongness, one person stands out: Alex Berenson.”: bit.ly

Read the “Atlantic” article, the second one above. This isn’t opinion, this is FACT!

If you’re doing your own research you’ve got to use Google or Bing or even DuckDuckGo, your search engine of choice. And the very first article that comes up on Google, the very first hit, is the “Atlantic” article.

This happens each and every day. I’ve got some ignorant doofus who e-mails me this garbage each and every day. All you have to do is Google and you’ll find out the site is notoriously biased and untrustworthy. You don’t have to dig deep, you barely have to dig at all.

But these anti-vaxxers don’t. So the truth is they really aren’t doing any research whatsoever, they just don’t want to get the shot and they’re looking for articles that support their position.

Now the fact is Joe Rogan reaches more people than any cable news outlet, even Fox. Funny that it takes a rock star to shine a light on this.

As for music, read this article from the BBC:

“More and more musicians are releasing their own music: Here’s why”: bbc.in

Bottom line? Today songs break on TikTok, and the truth is the major labels have almost no power on the platform. It’s owned by its users and the creators who provide the content. And I hate to tell you, these TikTokkers are not listening to terrestrial radio, and they’re not watching late night TV, the major labels’ power has been diminished by change in the marketplace. But they don’t want you to know this.

It’s all about ignorance and obfuscation if oldsters are in charge ad there’s money involved. If you think the head of any record label knows how to make and post a TikTok video you’re just plain wrong, there’s a very good chance they’ve never even visited the platform. Youngsters have all the time in the world, and they’re willing to work ‘round the clock in the pursuit of their goal. Suits are into lifestyle, acquisition, clothing, when in truth all you need to post content on TikTok is a smartphone.

I’m not saying that Rogan’s reach is a good thing, it’s just THE THING!

The labels couldn’t truly make the switch to the modern era and nor could traditional media. And I’m betting against Meta/Facebook in the metaverse, because once everybody knows about the new paradigm the established players usually don’t win in the transition.

So Joe Rogan gets his popularity from being the voice of the UFC. Hell, boomers refuse to watch it, to them boxing is still king, they remember Muhammad Ali. But today boxing means nothing, except if the match features social media star Jake Paul.

You see the social media stars know how to tell a story, it’s all about presentation, whereas journalists employ some of the most boring writing ever. It’s all formula. Young people don’t even bother to read the paper, and they never will. They’re going to be reached another way.

And we live in the era of the cult of personality. Newspapers are faceless. They should build up their stars and promote them to compete with the online kings and queens. But the papers are so busy being egalitarian, keeping everybody equal, that they take themselves out of the equation. Cable news figured this out, it’s all about stars, whether it be Sean Hannity or Rachel Maddow.

I’m not saying the papers are not the source of facts. It’s just that most people don’t get the news from said papers. That’s right, when it comes to news print is king. Supersedes everything else. TV has got very few reporters, what you see on screen is just about all they’ve got, they take their lead from the Big Three: “The New York Times,” “The Washington Post” and “The Wall Street Journal.” It’s all top-down in an era where it’s all bottom up.

Yes, you start at the bottom these days, you build your own audience. Don’t think about world domination, don’t even try to get a deal, just do the work yourself, you have to gather your tribe, and it’s the hardest thing to do.

And the people spewing these falsehoods online have been building their audiences for eons, and now they’re dominant.

So Neil Young takes a stand. After a slew of doctors took a stand last week. Will Rogan go?

Well, the doctors’ blowback was circulated only amongst those with the same take, that Rogan is a fount of misinformation and must go.

But now we’ve got rock god Neil Young!

Neil Young’s new album was featured in every dead tree outlet known to man, and a ton of online ones too. He’s back with Crazy Horse, the reviews say it’s a return to form.

But it’s already gone, nobody cares, there’s no action whatsoever.

At this point only ONE song on the album has over a million streams on Spotify. Seven of the remaining nine don’t even break four hundred thousand! I don’t think Neil can even treat his team to lunch on this payout.

You see Neil Young no longer counts. He’s old. He’s history.

But it’s not only him, it’s all the old acts. Not only classic rockers but MTV stars too. Do you know how many years, DECADES!, it’s been since their heyday? Young’s comeback, playing on stage at the VMAs with Pearl Jam, was in 1993…TWENTY NINE YEARS AGO!

Neil’s got four tracks with triple-digit million streams on Spotify, but Fleetwood Mac has many more. Yes, even in the classic rock world Neil Young is not burning up Spotify.

This is no judgment of Mr. Young’s music, not whatsoever, but the truth is Spotify could can all of his music, take it down like he wants, and the streaming platform wouldn’t be hurt economically at all.

No, the only way you hurt Spotify is to get all the rest of the acts on board. But this is where they make their money, so they’re loath to unite in the cause, and some of them are right wing anti-vaxxers anyway.

Which brings us to the strange case of Interscope Records. Burning up the charts with Dr. Dre and his proteges, the blowback was so bad that Warner Brothers decided the label had to go. So, it gave Interscope its freedom and then it was subsumed into the Universal group, the worst of the major labels, and now Universal has 40% market share, dominates.

So, could the same thing happen to Spotify?

Now I don’t expect Amazon or Apple will pick up Rogan exclusively for a big check, then again, Apple hosted Rogan’s podcast before Joe made an exclusive deal with Spotify.

Can Joe Rogan be killed? Metaphorically, I mean.

Well, in truth you can do it alone, unfettered, and make MORE money. Yes, most analysts felt that Rogan left money on the table when he made his exclusive deal with Spotify. So Rogan wins no matter what.

Then again, if Rogan isn’t on all the readily available platforms, then what?

Well, OAN is being killed by the cable companies, it’s being squeezed off their systems, which say it’s a cost-cutting measure. Who knows the real motivation, but this right wing bloviating nonsense provider has been hindered in its reach.

Just like Trump being off Twitter.

Then there’s the story of David Geffen and Geto Boys. He didn’t want them on the label, he let them go and they had no success. Then again, Geto Boys wasn’t a household name when the act was signed to Geffen. But David said my label, my choice, and acted. But not only is Spotify not independent like Geffen at the time, but it’s publicly traded… What’s best for its bottom line?

Then again, corporations can be swayed by public blowback, which is what happened with Warner and Interscope.

Then it comes down to the old issue facing Facebook and other legacy companies, are they tech platforms or publishers/media companies? In other words, are they responsible for the content on their sites? They don’t want to be, which is why they keep saying they’re just tech platforms.

And we can try and thread the needle, but what are we going to do about all this misinformation and the death of democracy, just stay silent as the edifice crumbles? Mitch McConnell changes tack on a whim, no new Supreme Court Justice in the last year of Obama’s term, wait for the election, but he lets Trump install a new Justice just days before the 2020 election. Sure, there are rules, but they appear to be malleable.

Spotify already tried to crack down on hip-hop lyrics and then pulled back. But this is just one guy.

Then again, there are other people on the platform spewing misinformation, albeit with fewer fans, but do they have to go too?

And then you’ve got Aaron Rodgers, who lied about being vaccinated, said he was “immunized,” whatever that means, got Covid, missed play, and now says he doesn’t believe Biden is the legitimate president. This is the guy who says he was cured by Joe Rogan. Yup, if you’ve got medical issues don’t call your doctor, but JOE ROGAN!

So it’s Spotify’s choice. Neil Young means nothing to them. The only way to get to Spotify to take action is to make more noise.

But Spotify does have power. Look, Alex Jones’s reach has been neutered to a great degree. Distribution is king and if you don’t have it you’re in trouble.

Used to be the sweet science known as boxing was the realm of gangsters, not to be trusted, fights were fixed, it was a lowest common denominator enterprise. The UFC is barely better than the WWE. Well, it’s not that bad, but it’s based on physicality, not intellect, and the bozo embedded in this sport of mutilation is who the youngsters listen to, where they get their information.

This is a problem. Neil Young is right. If you want change, you’ve got to join him. If every classic rock act threatened to pull their music from Spotify, believe me they’d can Rogan. Because if every classic rock act goes, the audience will be pissed, and will go to Apple or Amazon and subscriber acquisition is the biggest hurdle in building your business.

Maybe it’s not about Joe Rogan, maybe it’s just about misinformation. Twitter has got its three strikes rule, why can’t Spotify have the same thing?

Neil Young lit a match, will it turn into a fire?

It depends on you.

Spotless
Trailer: bit.ly

We had to finish this before we dug into “Ozark.”

I almost wrote about “Ozark” last night, we’re not quite two episodes in, so please don’t e-mail me about stuff and ruin it, but what got me so excited, what made me want to communicate with you, was how they got the family stuff exactly right. The only show to do this on an equal level, at least that I’ve seen, is “The Sopranos.” You remember when Tony asked Meadow what her punishment should be and she suggested taking away her gas credit card? Tony and Carmela agreed and then Meadow went into her bedroom, called a friend and said how she’d completely snowed her parents, that they were clueless, that this wasn’t much of a sacrifice at all.

Well in “Ozark” you see two styles of parenting, the good cop and the bad cop. Justin Bateman and Laura Linney. That’s how it is in most families, and even though the father might mete out punishment he’s usually clueless, or he’s like my dad, who went from zero to a hundred instantly and took off his belt and whipped me. But in this case, it’s the mother, Ms. Linney, who keeps pushing, Mr. Bateman is the softy, trying to see down the line, envision the consequences.

And then there are the children. Who are never completely aligned, They share their status as underlings, and sometimes they’re united and sometimes they’re not, sometimes they positively hate each other.

Have you been in the midst of a family argument where your two parents are on different sides of the issue, at least re punishment? I certainly have, and they nail this in “Ozark.”

But “Spotless” is completely different.

I’d never heard of it. Then Karen Bliss e-mailed me about it, and I watch nothing on sheer recommendation, I went to the data, and on RottenTomatoes “Spotless” got a critics score of 100% and an audience score of 94%. This we had to watch, and we did.

It’s a crime story. And by the end of the first episode you think you know where it is going. But ultimately you don’t, which is what keeps you hanging on.

AND THE TENSION!!

You know it’s not real, but you can’t help but get wound up.

But really I’m writing about the performances, most especially Denis Ménochet as the ne’er-do-well brother. He’s the glue that holds the show together. At first he appears to be a bumbling, uneducated nincompoop, but as the show progresses you realize he’s incredibly wise, incredibly street smart.

And at times charming.

The rules don’t apply to him.

So you want to be him.

Not that he’s a beautiful specimen, like in an American series, hell, he’s got a big belly, but because he is never afraid of speaking his truth, he doesn’t play by society’s rules, he’s willing to go all in on his position.

Not that he’s stupid. He knows when it’s a losing proposition. But if there’s any chance of things going his way, he’ll play the odds.

His brother Jean wants to go to the cops, but Ménochet, as Martin, says that in his experience nothing good ever comes from going to the cops. I have to say I agree with this. The cops are not on your team. They are not looking out for you. They’ll be charming, play like they’re on your side, when that’s completely untrue. Not that I won’t dial 911 in an emergency, but shy of that…one thing I know for sure, THE POLICE WON’T COME! Ever since 9/11 police have been portrayed as gods, I don’t think so.

And Martin can appear a buffoon, a bull in a china shop, and then he can smile ever so slightly, stare at you with those eyes and you’re on his side.

And you can count on him. Not when you want to, but when it looks like you’re screwed, he reads the situation and shows up, when it truly matters.

And he can relate to the children in a way their parents cannot. Maybe because he’s an overgrown child himself, but also because he’s got better insight into life than their parents.

Now you know how it is with guests, with family, they can come and stay, but only for a few days. But Martin keeps hanging on and on…

And he gets Jean into trouble. With the bad guys. The equivalent of the Mafia. And you know how that plays out. Certainly Martin does, he says they kill you in the end, and you’ve got to be prepared for it.

That does not mean Martin doesn’t screw up. He’s constantly trying to fix the situation by doing the dirty work behind the unknowing Jean’s back, but it always blows up in his face.

As for the rest of the characters…

Brendan Coyle as the underworld Nelson Clay is utterly fantastic. Because he’s subtle, he doesn’t overplay his hand, or the role.

You know, bad guys are always hotheads, or pure evil, or if they’re calm it just takes one thing to set them off, but Nelson… He’s almost always soft-spoken and dignified, he dresses just like a businessman. There’s power in his quietude.

And the kids! Jemma Donovan as the daughter Maddy is rebelling against her parents who are too rarely available, never mind understanding, while testing the limits of society all the while.

Meanwhile, her brother Oliver becomes fatalistic and is into blood and gore and…

You know that Martin and Jean are going to be brought in deeper, but how it plays out…the twists and turns, like I said, are not always foreseeable.

Looks like the Wisconsin judge lifted the restraining order on the at-will-workers:

An Outagamie County judge has lifted an injunction, freeing seven members of ThedaCare’s accredited stroke care team to take jobs with Ascension Wisconsin.

Judge Mark McGinnis said, “Based up on the testimony, the exhibits that have come in that ThedaCare has not satisfied its burden that it will likely suffer irreputable harm without an injunction.”

Seven of the stroke care team’s 11 members accepted work at St. Elizabeth Hospital. They were supposed to start their new jobs on Friday. However, ThedaCare filed for an injunction, claiming Ascension recruited the employees. The lawsuit also sought a 90-day partnership with Ascension Wisconsin until ThedaCare could fill those positions.

My assumption on hearing this was that Biden is an experienced politician and this was not a spur of the moment thing.

My presumption is that he wanted to send a deliberate message and gamed it out in advance.

One example is that Biden never lost control of the situation and brought it to an end at a time, place, and way of his choosing.

Remember when the press excused or even cheered for a president who “spoke his mind”? And who eventually began arguing that swearing on live TV actually helped a president with his supporters?

Yeah, amazing what happens when the (R) turns into a (D), huh?///////

Thanks for the tip.
I am glad I am not active anymore.
When I was in, we had to measure shell holes with a tape measure and use a compass to locate artillery. Now, they can locate your artillery battery in seconds.

Looks like another 1L219 Zoopark-1 counterbattery radar system
