Keith Jarrett Trio: Standards (1996 - Full Concert)

Jazz
Music • Views: 23,603

Discovered this amazing treat at YouTube - the full concert DVD of the Keith Jarrett Trio’s “Standards” concert on March 30, 1996 at Tokyo’s Hitomi Memorial Hall. This DVD is long out of print, and it’s one of the most beautiful and virtuosic sets this exceptional group has ever played. (I have a DVD copy but it got damaged somehow and won’t play any more.)

It’s been a tough few days, but music like this reminds us of the best human qualities: invention, improvisation, and humor, with a touch of chaos. Enjoy.

A Serious Question From Religious Right Caveman Bryan Fischer

Moar God, moar gunz
Wingnuts • Views: 26,966

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer noticed that people didn’t respond very well to his statement that God could have protected the children in Newtown, but “God is not going to go where he’s not wanted,” because he’s a “gentleman.”

So today he posted this plaintive tweet on the Twitters:

Excellent question, Bryan. I would have to say yes, of course, but that doesn’t begin to capture the true essence of Fischer, the Eau de Fischer, if you will. I know Twitter limits us to 140 characters, but here at LGF we have no such constraints.

In addition to shockingly arrogant, immoral and insensitive, Bryan, other adjectives that pertain to you (and your organization) include: repulsive, disgusting, abhorrent, repellent, repugnant, offensive, objectionable, vile, foul, nasty, loathsome, sickening, nauseating, hateful, detestable, execrable, abominable, monstrous, noxious, horrendous, awful, terrible, dreadful, frightful, obnoxious, unsavory, unpleasant, disagreeable, distasteful, ugly, hideous, grotesque, ghastly, horrible, horrid, gross, and noisome.

Also: fanatical, zealous, extremist, militant, dogmatic, intolerant, single-minded, blinkered, and inflexible.

Does that answer your question?

Right Wing Bloggers Blame Everything but Guns

Nuts about guns
Wingnuts • Views: 25,953

Roy Edroso takes a run around the right wing blogosphere to see their reaction to the Newtown massacre, and discovers that every single one of them is chanting MOAR GUNZ! MOAR GUNZ! GUNZ ARE THE SOLUTION, NOT THE PROBLEM! After Newtown, Rightbloggers Agree: Guns Don’t Kill People, Everything Except Guns Kills People.

After the gruesome murders of children and teachers by Adam Lanza in Newtown, Connecticut, apparently mostly performed with a Bushmaster AR-15 (“the civilian version of the military’s M-16 and M-4,” says the New York Times, “a logical choice for anyone whose goal is to kill a lot of people in a short time because of their ability to rapidly fire multiple high-velocity rounds”), rightbloggers were clear and united in their response: There are a lot of things that may have been the root cause of this tragedy — a lack of God, mental illness, public schools, liberals — but one thing that definitely had nothing at all to do with it was guns.

All the raving wingnuts are represented: Instapundit, Jeff Goldstein, Ace of Spades, National Review, neo-Confederate Robert Stacy McCain, and the Internet’s Dumbest Man, Jim Hoft. The leading lights of the right.

And speaking of Glenn “Instapundit” Reynolds, here he is retweeting a deranged, paranoid video from conspiracy lunatic Alex Jones:

Because that’s how the right wing blogs roll.
