Aug. 12, 2019 | Robin Hilton — Well before arriving for this performance, the three guys in half•alive asked for the exact dimensions of the space behind Bob Boilen’s desk. Known for their live shows, with elaborate, synchronized dancing and costume changes, the group naturally wondered how they’d pull everything off in such a cozy space.

Their solution? Have the dancers sit for the performance. The choreography, now restricted to the width of two chairs, was incredible. You’ll see how it all works on the final song half•alive played, “ice cold.,” a new track from the band’s just-released debut full-length, Now, Not Yet. And, if you’re one of the 25-million people who’ve watched the band’s must-see video for the song “still feel,” you’ll likely recognize the dancers, Jordan Johnson and Aiden Carberry.

The band, fronted by singer and guitarist Josh Taylor, didn’t try to squeeze in any costume changes. But in addition to the sitting dancers, they also brought along cellist Callie Galvez and violinist Emiko Bankson for a beautiful but propulsive version of the song “RUNAWAY.”

Formed in Long Beach, Calif. in 2016, half•alive is a band with a clear vision and gift for design, not just in the earworms they write, but in their entire presentation, with often-matching outfits and carefully selected color schemes. It wasn’t at all surprising to see and hear the care they took to make their Tiny Desk debut a memorable one.

SET LIST
“RUNAWAY”
“still feel.”
“ice cold.”

re: #411 HappyWarrior

It really is something how the Greenwaldian left goes all out to deny the Russian shit but then again they like being willing ratfucks for Vlad since they’re morons. I don’t trust their judgment at all.

The Greenwald crowd continue to push the “RUSSIA WAS A HOAX!!!” bit largely because the moment people started talking about it, they stopped buying into “The Dems lost because they didn’t do enough to appeal to white people!” whine. A lot of folks forget that, in that short period between Election Night and Flynn getting caught, the media and the dudebros were singing from the same hymn sheets about how the Dems had totally blown the election because they hadn’t gone after the “economically anxious” crowd.

Just a reminder how Andy Ngo incited this latest confrontation.

One political organizer in Portland who has received death threats stemming from Ngo’s work says, “It’s an arms race for money, and the narrative isn’t the point — the grift is. The larger, more offensive thing you can do, the system rewards it.”

This appears to be Ngo’s model. He uses social media to push biased opinions in conjunction with selectively edited videos that play to the bigotry of his audience. His followers get worked up, and this is often followed by a deluge of threats against his subject.

The prick deserves to be in jail.

I’m finally starting to understand the economy of hate. In the old days hatebreeds would print stuff, make music, communicate directly. Minimally effective, and the consumption of the information generated little profit. Now that we’re in the age of mega info and monetized clicks there’s a middle man between the haters and potential recruits profiting off the transfer of information.

By the way, Erick, if 500K Union soldiers died “for the propriation of the nation’s original sin,” then what did Confederate soldiers die for? And if it wasn’t for what the Union soldiers were dying for, then wouldn’t you as a God-fearing man agree that we need to destroy all the monuments to them?

I’m reading the 1619 Times articles. They are just brutal.

I understand why the alt-right do not like them at all. It exposes the history of chattle slavery, the decision made by the founding fathers, damn them, to make the political decision to count slaves as 3/5ths of a human being so that the southern states would have more members in the House.

It was despicable, but necessary to get the southern States to sign on to the Constitution because the earlier agreed compact, the Articles of Confederation, were fatally flawed.

This is an excellent explanation of real history. Well documented, beautifully curated, and absolutely accurate.

The gaspers that are attacking it are, not to put too fine point on it, racist motherfuckers. Full stop.

Night all, I am still reading the 1619 stories and will be for several days.

They do not make for sweet scaly dreams. They make for significant questions about how the founders of this country dealt with the fundamental question of chattle slavery.

Just check out the relationship between Thomas Jefferson and his half-brother while he was writing the Declaration of Independance.

Now that we’re in the age of mega info and monetized clicks there’s a middle man between the haters and potential recruits profiting off the transfer of information.

I don’t know if I would go with “minimally effective” in the old days.

When neo-Nazis gained control of George Wallace’s “Youth for Wallace” membership lists, they leveraged it into the National Alliance, the best financed and organised Nazi group since the German American Bund (but a lot more violent). They then used their financial clout to acquire Resistance Records, a moribund white-power record label. With that record label and signing new “artists,” they were making tons of money and recruiting tens of thousands of members.

They were only broken when the Southern Poverty Law Center acquired a videotape of the leader of the National Alliance basically calling all the people who bought from Resistance Records a bunch of morons, which then set up a flurry of in-fighting between the groups that financed the National Alliance and NA itself. NA tore itself apart over political infighting, since in conservatism you can only gain power by reducing someone else’s power.

Marc Theissen of the Washington Post came to the defence of fascists and Christian groups trying to take rights or promote violence by claiming the SPLC “has lost its credibility by smearing good people.”

re: #30 Anymouse 🌹🎃

From the opening paragraph of the article at SPLC on the National Alliance and the lack of effectiveness in the Seventies and Eighties before the advent of social media and outlets like YouTube:

Explicitly genocidal in its ideology, NA materials call for the eradication of the Jews and other races — what a principal foundational document describes as “a temporary unpleasantness” — and the creation of an all-white homeland. Founded by William Pierce in 1970, the group produced assassins, bombers and bank robbers, among other things. Pierce’s novel, The Turner Diaries, was the inspiration for Timothy McVeigh’s 1995 bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City and many other acts of terror. After Pierce died unexpectedly in 2002, the group suffered several splits and ultimately lost most of its members.

(bold mine)

Groups were quite effective before Endless September.

re: #30 Anymouse 🌹🎃

The issue the SPLC had that Theissan was saying the SPLC “lost all credibility” for was over Maajid Nawaz being included on an SPLC list of anti-Muslim extremists.

The SPLC fell into the same thought trap that many religious people often do. Nawaz was at one time a Muslim extremist, and served a prison sentence in Egypt for that. During that time, he rethought his positions and abandoned Islam, becoming an atheist, calling for a “secular Islam,” and attacking the tenets of the faith.

The SPLC took “attacking the tenets of Islam” with “attacking Muslims.” (Been there, done that with Christians who send me threats occasionally over counter-apologetics.)

Conservatives will now cite this one case like parrots to say the SPLC has no credibility (especially people like Pamela Geller and Marc Theissan).

So, some shower thoughts for August 20th 2019.

Let’s say Trump loses come next November (knock on wood!); would he resign and in return, Pence issues a blanket pardon for Trump and his family - and cronies - for any Federal crimes committed during Trump’s presidency as Pence steps in as a caretaker President until the new Democratic POTUS formally takes office in January 2021?

I was thinking in that scenario, Trump could well resign as early as a week or two after Election Day.

Now granted, there’s absolutely nothing Pence could do regarding pardoning state-level charges, so on that, Trump would be on his own. So in order to avoid any consequences for state-level crimes, Trump and company would have to flee the country to another nation that has no extradition treaty with the United States. Quite famously, Russia has no such treaty with the USA……and who knows? Maybe that’s what Trump and Putin talk about on the phone and in private - we have no way of really knowing, do we?

In The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, author Michael Chabon describes a couple of aspiring Jewish comic book artists in the 1930’s, one of whom has fled the Prague ghetto. They create “The Escapist”, whose power is to get out of any restraints put on him.

And these figures were fighting Nazi villains long before the US armed forces ever were.

If Trump fled the US, his ability to earn money from speeches and appearances would be seriously compromised. And that is what he will have to do once the courts seize his assets. That is the only flaw in this scenario.

Yesterday my team of 3 volunteers and I went eyeball-to-eyeball with1000 college students. Today is a light class schedule, so fewer of us will give fewer of them the chance to register to vote. In terms of registrations and student awareness the results are “mixed”. A few of these kids will be voting when I’m 50 years dead, so it’s a good action. It’s a thousand year war.

True, but he could “sell” his assets to, let’s say, a Russian investment group prior to flying the coop.

You know, Trump Tower and other real estate holdings. Of course, he’d likely lose Mar-a-Lago and his golf resorts, unless some Russian “investors” bought that too.

But……that would require foresight, diligence and careful planning. And, well, we’re talking Donald J. Trump here.

I’m not on Twitter either, and have no intention of being on twitter. I was on LiveJournal until shortly after the Russians bought it and I abandoned the platform, and I am on tumblr, and I am on Facebook (after having resisted it for a few years), where I deliberately keep myself to around only fifty well-vetted friends (most of whom I’ve interacted strongly with for 25 years as part of a now-defunct e-mail list) and immediate family members, a couple of college friends, and three former schoolmates who are definitely not members of my alma mater’s Alumni Fascist Appreciation Society.

Someone cue up Queen’s “Another One Bites The Dust”:

A fifth member of the National Rifle Association’s board of directors has resigned, the latest in a string of high-profile defections within the powerful gun rights group in recent weeks.

NRA board member Richard Childress, a former NASCAR driver and the owner of a self-titled car racing enterprise, submitted his resignation to the board, John Frazer, the organization’s secretary, and NRA President Carolyn Meadows on Monday, according to a copy of the letter obtained by Newsweek.

This marks the fifth resignation from the NRA’s board of directors since August 1, when three board members quit after they allege they were sidelined for raising questions about apparently lavish spending and mismanagement by top executives.

Childress, along with former NRA President Lt. Col. Oliver North, had previously authored a memorandum to the chairman of the NRA’s audit committee and Frazer (in his dual capacity as general counsel) expressing how they were “deeply concerned” about the billable hours being racked up by the organization’s outside counsel, William A. Brewer III.

re: #44 Dr Lizardo

So, some shower thoughts for August 20th 2019.

Let’s say Trump loses come next November (knock on wood!); would he resign and in return, Pence issues a blanket pardon for Trump and his family - and cronies - for any Federal crimes committed during Trump’s presidency as Pence steps in as a caretaker President until the new Democratic POTUS formally takes office in January 2021?

I was thinking in that scenario, Trump could well resign as early as a week or two after Election Day.

Now granted, there’s absolutely nothing Pence could do regarding pardoning state-level charges, so on that, Trump would be on his own. So in order to avoid any consequences for state-level crimes, Trump and company would have to flee the country to another nation that has no extradition treaty with the United States. Quite famously, Russia has no such treaty with the USA……and who knows? Maybe that’s what Trump and Putin talk about on the phone and in private - we have no way of really knowing, do we?

Great - if somewhat overwrought* - scenario: but unlikely for a couple of reasons:

1. It’s likely Trump will have spent probably the entirety of the actual campaign making hysterically shouting baseless claims of “ELECTION FRAUD!!!” : it’s more likely he is going to stick it out screaming and yelling til the last minute (and then suddenly decide - on January 19 - that he’ll leave quietly “for the good of the country”). Remember that comment he made in 2016 about how he believes the only “legitimate” election is one he wins?? Like so much else, it was waved-away as a bad joke: but unfortunately, this is Donald Trump: he and his cultists actually go for this line….

2. A resignation-and-pardon scenario is basically going to be seen (however frantically the Admin and GOP may try to spin it otherwise) as an admission of guilt. One thing Trump has NEVER been known to do (NDA settlements notwithstanding).

*or would have been, pre-Trump-Era

he might, though he would go down as another president who resigned in disgrace (mostly because he was chicken)
the pardon would prove the ‘in disgrace part’
further, under that scenario i think the pardons would definitely be challenged

further, further, i read they dont have to wait till that scenairo. try this one:

trump signs the 25 amendment letter - as if for a general anesthetic surgery
pence is in charge
pence pardons…
trump signs second letter, or however it works, “im back in business”

again, while it might be how the constitution reads, it would be seen for the cynical ploy that it is

re: #139 Joe Bacon 🌹

Andrew Sullivan has always been a White Supremacist. That was made abundantly clear when he championed Charles Murray and The Bell Curve. Don’t forget how he went into a racist rant against Malcolm Nance. He’s just your typical sneering Tory Queen who should have been deported years ago.

Yet despite that, Sullivan was an enthusiastic supporter of Obama in December of 2007. He saw something in Obama that he thought would transcend the divides in this country; unfortunately he didn’t understand the depths of Republican depravity. I started reading him about that time and was impressed by his insights and his eventually realization that his views on Iraq were entirely wrong. Of course, I didn’t realize that he is also a misogynist. His racism reemerged after Obama left office.

Sully is an American citizen and so is entitled to the same rights and privileges as the rest of us, including expressing views that are totally misguided.

Ever time the ‘but’ clause appears in a sentence, everything after the but makes the sentence to be complete bullshit.

‘I’m not a racist, but…’ is the premier exemplar.

For too long, America has been content with low-Earth orbit & missions focused on the Earth, instead of aiming for the stars. Under President @realDonaldTrump’s leadership, all of that is changing. After 2 1/2 years, I’m proud to report: America is leading in space once again!

Any WSJ opinion piece is trash and has always been trash even before Murdoch (except for the few times in the 1980’s when they had a token liberal). The news section isn’t terrible but editorials and commentary should be treated as garbage and ignored.

Does “E.S.” stand for “Extremely Stupid”??

Normally, I’d imagine that such an ill-composed, semiliterate threat-screed like that would be the work of somebody going out of their way to feign coming across as a crank/doofus/nutbar: unfortunately, it sounds all too real.

Norman Rockwell HAD TALENT. Also he was a liberal. McNaughton is a hack with less talent than the North Korean artists who create the Kim posters… at least they pay attention to composition.
