Louie Louie, an FBI investigation and probably unintentional misdirection

(For some reason, YouTube is no longer giving me Embed codes on my IPad.)

Earlier this evening I played rock n roll. How it works here is a local bar has a house band on Thursdays that you can sign up to play with - or sometimes a whole band comes and plays a few songs. I started a few weeks back and because keyboard players are rare I often sit in for most of the evening. My connection with the…

Single Sentence Saturday: On Anthony Bourdain

I think Bourdain would be completely amazed by how much attention he has gotten in death.

A photograph from a Palestinian demonstration

A while back I saw a post featuring a photograph of a big, fully armed IDF soldier with his boot on the back of a very small Palestinian child. It was a picture worth a thousand words. I was embarrassed by it even though I’m not Israeli. By the way, in spite of what I’m about to write, I still am. 

When I saw such posts I tended to keep my mouth shut unless I was sure I agreed with the point of the post, like the recent shooting of a sixteen year old demonstrator in Gaza by the…

The ADL on the Armenian Genocide and (not) on the destruction of Al Aqsa

On the pages of this site, a couple of accusations were made by Safe Bet’s Amy about the Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish organization founded to combat antisemitism. 

The first was that the ADL does not recognize the Armenian Genocide. Let’s see:

The second concerned alleged ADL statements calling for the destruction of Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem. I…

Weird stuff I learn on YouTube: Michael Jackson’s Human Nature became a hit because of a feature on a cassette player

I love YouTube because you can learn all sorts of stuff on it just browsing. Lately I’ve learned a whole lot about various entertainers and musicians just because I trip over stuff. This is one of those instances. This story is about a Michael Jackson song called Human Nature.

For some reason, I no longer get embed codes from YouTube videos, so I’m sorry I’m just providing a link. 

This morning, I tripped…

Something that doesn’t photograph

I took this picture knowing it wouldn’t work, from experience. I’m not sure if this can be done on video or not. 

This morning there was dew on the grass and if you looked Eastward the sun reflected in the dew. Probably still is, as I took this a few minutes ago and…

Privatization

If you talk to Republicans about the Government, they’ll tell you that the more we privatize, the better because of greater efficiency in the private sector. My answer has been that, aside from the greater efficiency being mythical (which is why Dilbert is about the private sector), the intrinsic problems are that privatization adds an extra layer of expense in the form of profits for stockholders and that the ultimate focus of the organization shifts from ultimate responsibility to the…

Challenge: Humor

I’ve written satirical stuff but I’m not up for trying to do that here. I notice a lot of people quote things rather than create things, so I’ll do that here. This is a joke from my childhood, probably early junior high. 

A very tired, bored boy is sitting in Sunday School class and is nodding off. The teacher notices and decides to catch him, and so she asks him a question:

Who created Heaven and Earth?

The kid behind him jabs him in the back with a pencil, he…

SBA/RR Challenge: About Entertainment, a question

This post may be mistagged. 

I do not understand this category. Is this meant for posts about the entertainment industry, like Mr. Leshi used to write here? If it isn’t, well, fiction can be entertainment, music can be entertainment, poetry can be entertainment, arts/photography can be entertainment. 

If someone will tell me what this means, I suppose I could take a shot at writing one, though I don’t know all that much about the entertainment industry. 

Just in case,…
