Jimmy Dore - NBC’s Jawdropping McCarthyite Smear of Tulsi Gabbard

Jimmy Dore says that Jonathon Morgan, one founders of spooky outfit, New Knowledge, is the scum of the Earth. I agree.

Where do all these fruitcakes come from, and there seems to be loads of them, like Rachel Maddow, Bill Maher, and others? All crazy!

And then you have the Guardian, the BBC, and all the nice presenters on TV putting out pro-war propaganda. All these well educated, reasonable people stirring up war ever every day. No one would believe that these people are bold-faced lying.

Then you tell your friends the truth thinking they will understand because they have known you a long time, but instead, they say your a conspiracy theorist who has done too much internet, looking at 'fake news' sites. I wind them up now and say with a straight face that Putin is quite a nice guy, on the whole, and we're are lucky to have him.

It's reminds me of The Invasion of the Body Snatchers, where in the end there are only two people that haven't been taken over - the leading character and his girlfriend - and everyone else looks alright, but they are gone, all re-programmed. It's spooky!

On 4 Feb 2019 New York Times said that, “Corruption is in Russia’s DNA, as it is in Mr. Putin’s.”

Imagine if someone said that about Blacks or Hispanics or (gasp) Jews.

There would be a global outcry.


It’s okay to vilify and insult Russians, just as it’s okay to insult straight white males. Indeed, straight white males are as evil as Russians. Therefore straight white males are all Russians.

The Times also says that Putin is “No friend of democracy,” and is “vindictive and petty.”

I doubt that anyone reads such trash. It is written because if you want a job as a journalist, you have to moo like the rest of the herd.

Javier Navarrete from Spain wrote the soundtrack to a New Zealand / South Korean movie titled The Warrior’s Way (2010).

This was a Clint Eastwood-style Western, except that it involved Asians as well as whites.

In the music below, the trumpet work is reminiscent of Ennio Morricone’s music for the Clint Eastwood westerns. This music plays as the main protagonist and main bad guy face off for a final dual with a magnificent sunset behind them.

60-second snippet...


Konrad said...

Also in the style of Ennio Morricone was Marcello Giombini’s soundtrack to the Italian western Ballad of a Gunman (1967)


TRIVIA: Those Italian westerns were mostly filmed in Europe’s only desert, which is the Tabernas desert in Spain. Many of the stories are set in Mexico or in the USA near Mexico. There is no place anywhere in Mexico that looks like the scenery and buildings in the movies, except perhaps the state of Guanajuato. (wah-neh-WAH-tow) The only place outside of Spain that looks like the Italian movies is a few places in New Mexico, USA.

The scene of the famous three-way shootout in The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly was filmed in northern Spain, and has become a place of pilgrimage for cinemaphiles. Over the years it became completely obliterated, but fans rebuilt it, added grave markers, and so on. You can see it on MapQuest…


Konrad said...

Movie fans even made a grave marked "Unknown" beside the grave for "Arch Stanton," as seen in the 1967 movie.

Some epic stuff there, Konrad. I keep finding stuff in my collecting I think you might like. You might this -

Frazier Chorus Living Room


And this. But it takes a while to get going.

Sloppy Heart


Kaivey said...

It sounds terrific on a good hi fi. I have it streamed from my tablet.

The guy behind Frazier Chorus was classically trained. They were never big, probably because they were unusual. This is a good track. We will have to start calling this The Mike Norman Economics and Music Sharing Site.

Frazier Chorus - Cloud 8


Typical https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-w3deHdO0R4&time_continue=154

From the mad end of my music collection. They are very unusual. From the British underground electronic music scene. It is not techno, it's plink-plonk crazy, but I think it's lovely.

I stopped reading right there.

More great songs from a group (Frazier Chorus) I’ve never heard of.

My favorite is “Sloppy Heart” (1987) which I love. Wow. Number 2 is “Living Room” (1990). The singing style reminds me of Moby, who came later…



In 1984 Georg Deuter from Germany visited a very picturesque cape on the California Coast called Point Reyes (Kings’ Point in Spanish). I’ve been there. It’s 30 miles (50 km) north of San Francisco. On windy days the surf makes great clouds of mist. Deuter did this instrumental song to commemorate that mist…


You can swim in the ocean in the bottom fourth of California’s coast, but north of that, the water is far too cold. The water off Point Reyes is so cold it hurts.


James Asher is from the UK. The instrumental below is nice “ambient”-style music, or background music, or…whatever.

“The Great Wheel.” (1989)


Kaivey said...

I just played the Great Wheel right through. It chilled me out nice.

Kaivey said...

I haven't played that Moby track for years, but when I pressed on the link it took me back to the last time I played It where I had got halfway through.

Kaivey said...

After all these years it remembered where I had got last. And your link took me to the one I last used.
