Quotation: George Eliot on love


People who love downy peaches are apt not to think of the stone, and sometimes jar their teeth terribly against it.

Today’s Birthday: EDWARD DE VERE, 17TH EARL OF OXFORD (1550) gifted linguist (some think of him as Shakespeare)


Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford (1550)

A brilliantly gifted linguist and one of the most dashing figures of his time, Oxford was also reckless, hot-tempered, and disastrously spendthrift. He was the patron of an acting company and wrote highly praised poems and plays in his earlier years, though none of the plays are known to have survived. He is considered by some to be the true author of Shakespeare’s plays, since his own literary output apparently ceased just before Shakespeare’s began. Which of his writings have survived? More… Discuss

Canter & Siegel Post the First Commercial Mass Usenet Spam (1994)

Spam is now a ubiquitous part of the Internet, but that was not always the case. Early in the Internet age, two enterprising immigration lawyers—Laurence Canter and Martha Siegel—opened the floodgates of unwanted online commercial solicitation when they posted an ad for their services on thousands of Usenet newsgroups. Though not the first Usenet spam, the “Green Card Lottery” notice was the first to be commercial in nature and ushered in the modern era of Internet spam. What became of the duo? More… Discuss

 

FINDING LOVE NO LONGER A MATTER OF RACE OR RELIGION


Finding Love No Longer a Matter of Race or Religion

It may be tempting to stretch the truth in your online dating profile, but if you are in the market for a serious relationship, it might be wise to resist. In a recent poll, singles rated honesty as the most important quality in a mate. And while race and religion were of little concern to most respondents, the same could not be said formustaches on women—female facial hair was a top deal-breaker for 68 percent of the men surveyed—or male body odor—87 percent of women said they would refuse a second date with an odoriferous man. More… Discuss

North Korea: These Shoes Were Meant For Walking


Communication for Development of Ideas

While the G8 Summit unfolded today, Kim Jong-un thought of marketing a vampish war threat and released the above picture presumably pointing to the imminence of a catwalk war.

I sense some Soviet style in the hat, accessories seem fine enough, scornful look aside, but definitely capitalism standing tall in killer heels. Are they supposed to run in those or just open the ceremony???

Jazz Pizzicato, the first song I remember to have ever listen to


That would be a instrumental piece, older than myself; it’s a very well known, but rarely played lately. I blame the ever increasing volume of information growing around us.

Do you remember Leroy? Yes Leroy Anderson, an congenial composer, who studied music with George Enescu, among others?

Well, I believe, his first composition titled “Jazz Pizzicato”, is the first tune I recall ever to have listen, on a GE rectangular AM – LW RADIO, before FM, and so on…I remember, how fascinated I was by that enticing song, With its surrounding mystery, and pizzicato rhythm, but it took me a long time to associate that song with its composer, and the rest of his marvelous compositions, which by the way, the world should play more often.

Let’s listen to Jazz Pizzicato now:

Wasn’t that a treat?

Thank you Friends!

Army Email Labels Christian Ministries as “Domestic Hate Groups”

 

 

“A U.S. Army officer sent an email to dozens of subordinates listing the American Family Association and Family Research Council as “domestic hate groups” because they oppose homosexuality — and warned officers to monitor soldiers who might be supporters of the groups.

“Just want to ensure everyone is somewhat educated on some of the groups out there that do not share our Army Values,” read an email from Lt. Col.  Jack Rich to three dozen subordinates at Fort Campbell in Kentucky. “When we see behaviors that are inconsistent with Army Values – don’t just walk by – do the right thing and address the concern before it becomes a problem.”

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, told Fox News he was disturbed by the contents of the email.

You Don’t Matter


We Matter, let’s matter

Shackled and Crowned

AOpinionated Man allowed me to record his VERY moving poem.  I hope you enjoy the poem and the recording of this lucid piece.

You Don’t Matter – by AOpinionated Man

Left bin, right bin…

They fly in the air, carelessly thrown.

They fly like the angels they were… the angels they are soon to be.

Scrub, scrub, wash, and wash the blood away.

Down the drain goes the blood, sweat, and tears.

A crying soul joins them.

And as that soul dies, it is left with one thought.

You don’t matter…

Lyrics to Going Home :

I love to speak with Leonard
He’s a sportsman and a shepherd
He’s a lazy bastard
Living in a suit

But he does say what I tell him
Even though it isn’t welcome
He just doesn’t have the freedom
To refuse

He will speak these words of wisdom
Like a sage, a man of vision
Though he knows he’s really nothing
But the brief elaboration of a tube

Going home
Without my sorrow
Going home
Sometime tomorrow
Going home
To where it’s better
Than before

Going home
Without my burden
Going home
Behind the curtain
Going home
Without the costume
That I wore

He wants to write a love song
An anthem of forgiving
A manual for living with defeat

A cry above the suffering
A sacrifice recovering
But that isn’t what I need him
To complete

I want him to be certain
That he doesn’t have a burden
That he doesn’t need a vision
That he only has permission
To do my instant bidding
Which is to say what I have told him
To repeat

Going home
Without my sorrow
Going home
Sometime tomorrow
Going home
To where it’s better
Than before

Going home
Without my burden
Going home
Behind the curtain
Going home
Without this costume
That I wore

Going home
Without the sorrow
Going home
Sometime tomorrow
Going home
To where it’s better
Than before

Going home
Without the burden
Going home
Behind the curtain
Going home
Without this costume
That I wore

I love to speak with Leonard
He’s a sportsman and a shepherd
He’s a lazy bastard
Living in a suit

Leonard Cohen – First We Take


Leonard Cohen – First We Take Manhattan Lyrics

Artist: Leonard Cohen Album: I’m Your Man Genre: Folk

They sentenced me to twenty years of boredom For trying to change the system from within I’m coming now, I’m coming to reward them First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin I’m guided by a signal in the heavens I’m guided by this birthmark on my skin I’m guided by the beauty of our weapons First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin I’d really like to live beside you, baby I love your body and your spirit and your clothes But you see that line there moving through the station? I told you, I told you, told you I was one of those Ah, you loved me as a loser But now you’re worried that I just might win You know the way to stop me, but you don’t have the discipline How many nights I prayed for this, to let my work begin First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin I don’t like your fashion business, mister And I don’t like these drugs that keep you thin I don’t like what happened to my sister First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin I’d really like to live beside you, baby I love your body and your spirit and your clothes But you see that line there movin’ through the station? I told you, I told you, told you I was one of those And I thank you for those items that you sent me The monkey and the plywood violin I practiced every night, now I’m ready First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin I am guided Ah, remember me, I used to live for music Remember me, I brought your groceries in Well, it’s Father’s Day and everybody’s wounded First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

Pickpocket Protest Shuts Down Louvre

The Louvre is more than just the most visited art museum in the world; it is also, apparently, a pickpocket’s paradise. Petty thievery is rampant at the site, and the staff is fed up with it. Visitors and employees alike are regularly targeted by thieves, who often work in organized gangs and are becoming increasingly violent. In protest of the problem, hundreds of Louvre employees staged a one-day walkout that forced the museum’s temporary closure. Officials are looking into ways to improve security. More… Discuss
