LYRICS

I don’t know what to say about these days
I’m seeing people changing in the strangest ways
Even in the richer neighborhoods
People don’t know when they’ve got it good
They’ve got the envy and they’ve got it bad

When I was a kid everything I did was trying to be free
Running up and down Tinsel Town with the fire inside of me
My planets all in retrograde, the best of all my plans got laid
I made my breaks and some mistakes
Just not the ones people think I made

I’m a long way gone
Down this wild road I’m on
It’s going to take me where I’m bound
But it’s the long way around

It’s a little hard keeping track of what’s gone wrong
The covenant unravels and the news just rolls along
I could feel my memory letting go some two or three disasters ago
It’s hard to say which did more ill
Citizens United or the Gulf oil spill

I’m a long way gone
Down this wild road I’m on
It’s going to take me where I’m bound
But it’s the long way around

It’s never been that hard to buy a gun
Now they’ll sell a Glock 19 to just about anyone
The seeds of tragedy are there
In what we feel we have the right to bear
To watch our children come to harm
There in the safety of our arms
With all we disagree about
The passions burn, the heart goes out

And we’re a long way gone
Down this wild road we’re on
It’s going to take us where we’re bound
It’s just the long way around

Gazprom has turned off the gas to Latvia.

“Today Gazprom stopped gas supplies to Latvia within the framework of the July order due to the violation of … conditions,” the company said in a Telegram post, without providing further details.

Gazprom had already halted or reduced deliveries to 12 EU countries in retaliation for Western sanctions on Moscow over its invasion of Ukraine. The Russian gas giant stopped all deliveries to Poland, Bulgaria, the Netherlands, Finland and Denmark after energy companies in those countries refused to bow to Kremlin demands to pay for deliveries in rubles.

And fears are growing in Europe that Russian President Vladimir Putin will shut off the gas entirely. EU energy ministers this week reached agreement on mandatory, bloc-wide gas rationing in case of winter supply shortages.

Why this obsession with what consenting adults do in private in their spare time?

I understand in such cases where it is no longer consensual or private or if they are doing it at taxpayer’s expense, then we might have some vested interest in the matter, but up to that point IT’S NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS and if you still insist on making it your business, you are the one violating others’ rights and privacy.

re: #10 Wendell Zurkowitz ((slave to the waffle light))

Well, C.S. Lewis put it quite well (if a bit indelicately, but then again, this is from 1971):

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.”

Remember “entry-level drug”?

Keeping in mind that the first thing most addicts smoke is a legally obtainable cigarette and their first buzz is from legally obtainable alcohol, or a legally obtainable prescription med. (not that I used legally obtainable, as they were not necessarily legally obtained)

But if ALL other drugs are illegal, then smoking pot will put you in contact with people who also purvey other drugs that are a lot more addictive (and profitable). And why have dozens of smelly stoners coming by once a week with 50 bucks for some weed when you can have a handful of people who you can count on showing up every day with a hundred-dollar bill?

Ah, the British Royals, keeping tabloid journalists busy since…..well, forever:

Prince William is currently trending on Twitter for all the ‘wrong’ reasons. An anonymous post has created a spark on social media about the alleged affair of the British Royal.

The post, however, doesn’t name Prince William. However, the tidbits are pointing toward him and his alleged marital discord following his alleged affair with Rose Hanbury, a long-time friend, who is Marchioness of Cholmondeley. The anonymous post from an account named Deuxmoi on Instagram shares a scandalous story about Prince William and his alleged extramarital affair.

When we are children, we are taught that sequences of letters, strung together, form words, and that words have meaning, and their meaning shapes the world around us. Then, you get older, the bright sheen of youthful innocence wears away, and you learn that words mean nothing, life is chaos, and the name “Cholmondeley” is actually, against all odds and logic, pronounced “Chumley.”

Someone here in California did get 5 whiteballs which grossed them $4,234,962.

That’s a lot for a single draw 5-white-ball win. On a typical draw it goes up between $100k and $200k and since someone won that 5-ball prize last Tuesday, for it to go up to $4.2M in one draw means about 20x as many tickets were sold as usual.

The post with the hashtag #PrinceOfPegging alleges that the real reason behind the alleged affair of the British Prince was his love for pegging. The post further claims that Prince William’s wife does not mind the alleged affair.

So consenting adults doing it in private…but at taxpayer’s expense, which does open them up to this sort of scrutiny.

Yeah, this is 100% consensual and it seems that the wife of the “unnamed Prince” (nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more) knows about it. It’s not like he’s hidden it from her or anything or he’s visiting some VIP bordello or anything. Most likely, it’s just not something she’s into.

As an ex-spouse, he would have no legal standing over Ivana Trump’s remains (right?). So, either Ivana Trump was on board with this scheme prior to her death or it’s the kids. On the other hand, it would be so 2022 if Trump went down for desecrating a dead body.

I’m right there with you. I hope she had some say in this. Her body, her choice and all.

I’ve never really given a rat’s ass what happens to my body after I’m dead. My current plan is to donate it to help train cadaver dogs (or science if it would be helpful). But I now know I don’t want to end up on a Trump property.

When Trump loses in 2024 (I’m practicing my optimism here), the next business venture for the Trumps will be Trump-brand burial plots.

It’s almost certain to me that the burial plots thing is mainly as a tax reduction/dodge thing.

I’m not sure what Trump’s plan for himself are. I somehow doubt it’s to be put in a simple grave at a golf course. (The golf course part, yes. Not the simple grave part.)

I also wonder if he wants Ivana there to provide him a location he can pee on.

There is a difference between picking up brains off the floor after the violence has stopped (certainly a stressful and traumatic job) and seeing the brains of your classmates fall to the floor during the violence (stress and trauma amplified by overwhelming fear). It’s the fear that a forensic scientist doesn’t experience.

Self awareness just isn’t some people’s strong suit.

Hope is held out at the end:

But she also knows that a progressive challenger, like Rep. Ruben Gallego, is all but guaranteed in 2024 if she’s held responsible for killing the Democrats best shot at a climate bill in years.

Pressure should be kept on her at home. Make her warmer.

I hope your both correct. But with the number of times I’ve see her, Manchin or both derail Dem legislation, I not holding my breath.

She also may be pushing away her own trauma so hard it’s made her very strong. She’s started to push away other people’s trauma.

good point

She will do what’s best for her post-Senate career.

Also, great move by Ruben Gallego offering to help with a townhall. I like the cut of his jib.

This is fascinating. Berlin. Die Sinfonie der Großstadt, a 1927 film by Walter Ruttmann.

deutsche-kinemathek.de

What’s notable about this particular film shot in Berlin, Germany is the time when it was made: several years before the influence of the Nazi regime, and well before Joseph Goebbels’ Propaganda Ministry took over German film production, which killed creativity and forced many filmmakers to leave the country. It’s basically a time capsule, providing a historical filmed record of the city of Berlin in the mid-1920s. Over 30% of central Berlin was totally destroyed by the end of World War II, which totally changed the face of Berlin from that depicted in this film. Many places and buildings that didn’t survive the war appear in the film, like the Anhalter Bahnhof train station, and the Hotel Excelsior, once the largest hotel in Europe.

Until the 1930’s, Germany’s UFA Studios and Hollywood were near equals on the world market for popular filmmaking, but after all the ((creative people)) fled to Hollywood, there was no longer any competition.

Yeah, the pre-Nazi German film industry was a force to be reckoned with.

The bittersweet part of watching that 1927 film is the scenes of kids on their way to school. In 12 more years, they’d definitely be draft-age - and you really have to wonder how many of them survived the war. Or how many of the civilians featured in the film survived.

A world gone forever, and in less than two decades from when that film was released.

I get the same sense of nostalgia looking at movies of the city I grew up in, large swathes of which look like the RAF and the Red Army have recently had their way with it

I can only imagine that Gary, IN must have had a significant population decline over the decades.

I looked up Berlin’s population, and it still hasn’t recovered from WWII. Its peak was in May 1939, at 4,338,756. By August 1945, it was down to 2,807,405.

As of today, it stands at about 3,570,000.

“heartwarming inscription”?!?!

It’s her name (married name from her first marriage, maiden name not included, or names from later marriages) and the dates. That’s all. Not even “beloved mother”.

It was around 150K when I left in the 1970’s, now around 95K. They recently demolished my old High School.

Ostrava is gradually depopulating as well: peak population here was back in 1991, where it stood at 327,371. Today, it’s 284,982.

People are moving out, mostly young people seeking fame and fortune in Prague or elsewhere in the world. And of course, the population is aging out, too.
