2016: A ROUGH YEAR

Unless anyone’s residence is under a rock (not for 365 days), we all know how rough this year has been.

As years come to an end, there’s usually the perennial hope that the new one will bring good tidings and better things than the one that just ended.

However, it’s my personal belief that, we are in for a rougher ride in 2017 and beyond.

I really hope that I’m proven so wrong.

These lost lives can’t be replaced.

They will live in history and in the memory of our generation.

Dignity and self-respect can’t be replaced either and it will be much harder to recover.

Comey notified Congress of email probe despite DOJ concerns

Donald Trump’s oft-repeated claim that the FBI’s investigation of “Crooked Hillary” and the presidential election itself were and are “rigged,” seems to have thrown FBI Director James Comey into a state of panic.

In foolishly making a public announcement that the bureau is reviewing newly discovered emails related to Hillary Clinton’s personal server, he has inserted himself yet again into the presidential campaign.
The FBI virtually never announces the commencement or termination of ongoing criminal investigations or the discovery of new evidence. Such inquiries are often conducted in relative secrecy, enabling a more efficient investigation.

Trashing the Justice and FBI rule books in the interest of “openness” is likely to put the FBI front and center in one of the most contentious presidential races in recent US history.

J. Edgar Hoover loved to influence elections, but he had the good sense to keep quiet about it.

MATTHEW IS ON THE WAY

At the time of this writing, the morning is gray, overcast and rain is scant.

So far, only drizzling.

There’s an ominous feeling in the atmosphere, almost chilling.

I don’t know how long I’ll be able to post.

Will return to usual ‘programming‘ hopefully Saturday morning.

It will all depend on the effects of this massive hurricane.

I’ve been through several of them before.

Believe you me, it’s not a fun experience.

The worst of the storm, in my area, is expected to start this afternoon around 5 PM.

The peak is expected around 2 AM.

By Friday afternoon, hopefully, it should be gone, continuing the trek up north.

I will return as soon as conditions permit.

Hurricane Matthew is set to deliver a devastating blow to eastern Florida starting Thursday night,October 6, will hammer areas farther north up the coast in Georgia and the Carolinas Friday into the weekend.

An important point to make is that landfall does NOT need to take place for the worst impacts to come ashore. The strongest winds and most drilling surge will come to the coast in the eyewall, which surrounds the eye.

Landfall occurs when the calmest portion of the eye, or the center, comes ashore. Hurricane conditions will come ashore even if the center stays 20 to 30 miles offshore.

BREXIT

THE BRITISH ARE COMING … NO, THE BRITISH ARE LEAVING

I’m not am expert of any kind about this topic.

As a matter of fact, I’m bewildered by it.

I understand that the United Kingdom vote4d to leave the European Union.

I have a lot of reading to do.

I find this worrisome because I believe maybe other nations will do the same.

I think only time will tell if this is the correct move.

What is the European Union?

The European Union – often known as the EU – is an economic and political partnership involving 28 European countries. It began after World War Two to foster economic co-operation, with the idea that countries which trade together are more likely to avoid going to war with each other.

It has since grown to become a “single market” allowing goods and people to move around, basically as if the member states were one country.

It has its own currency, the euro, which is used by 19 of the member countries, its own parliament and it now sets rules in a wide range of areas – including on the environment, transport, consumer rights and even things such as mobile phone charges.

GoldSwirl

What has happened?

A referendum – a vote in which everyone (or nearly everyone) of voting age can take part – was held on Thursday 23 June, to decide whether the UK should leave or remain in the European Union.

Leave won by 52% to 48%.

The referendum turnout was 71.8%, with more than 30 million people voting. It was the highest turnout in a UK-wide vote since the 1992 general election.

I tell myself that I won’t dedicate any more time to this “man” in my spot.

Yet, he seems poised to get that nomination and his people have spoken.

The reason I’m posting about this is because The Daily Show created a skit with lyrics pulled verbatim from actual Donald Trump quotes.

‘The Daily Show’ Premieres Rap Video Using Only Donald Trump Quotes

By Matt Wilstein

Donald Trump desperately wants Americans to believe he is capable of acting “presidential,” but as The Daily Show demonstrated Thursday night, April 28, his natural demeanor more resembles a hip-hop star.

“Trump doesn’t belong in the White House. Donald Trump belongs in a rap video,” correspondent Roy Wood Jr. told host Trevor Noah.

“Everything Trump says is straight out of a rapper’s play book.

He brags about his money, he’s disrespectful to women, and there’s always fights at his concerts.
“You could make an entire rap song with just Donald Trump quotes,” Wood proposed. “All you need is a dope beat.”

To prove his point, Wood reprised his role as “Black Trump” in an elaborate music video called “They Love Me,” featuring only words that have been uttered by the candidate, complete with dates for reference.

In this context, lines like “Careful Lyin’ Ted I’ll spill the beans on your woman” and “I have black guys counting my money” suddenly made so much more sense.

DONALD TRUMP PARODY

A very dear friend of mine, a blogger who I follow, and lives across the oceans, posted this YouTube video this morning.

I was impressed by the presentation and the idea behind this video.

I mentioned to my friend that I was stealing it for a post on my blog.

I think the video is “right on the money”!

I hope she doesn’t mind that I’m using it here.

LADY GAG’S TRIBUTE TO DAVID BOWIE

I finally watched the Grammy’s which I had DVR’d. I think it was an amazing show in so many ways. Many different genres were represented. I saw people that I didn’t even know.

Kinda sad to sad that most of those mentioned in the “In Memoriam” section I knew

(that tells me a lot!)

Glad to see new talent recognized.

One of the performances that impressed me was Lady Gaga’s tribut to David Bowie.

Indeed, who else could have channeled this awesome talent lost early this year?

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Lady Gaga’s David Bowie Tribute at the Grammy’s Was Fabulously, Perfectly Weird

Kevin Fallon

Could anyone else have paid homage to David Bowie?

Channeling Ziggy Stardust, Lady Gaga saluted the icon at the Grammy’s the only way that fit: with unapologetic weirdness and glee.

How can there be a successor to someone so singular, so unique, so impossible to pinpoint and unabashedly weird  – all the while so undeniably genius.

Lady Gaga may not be the next David Bowie.

But if anyone can approximate the mood, the message, the spirit, and the stirring camp as the recently deceased icon, it’s the human and the alien in our Mother Monster, Lady Gaga.

It’s a testament to how fiercely we possess our affection for David Bowie that Gaga’s big, ambitious tribute at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards, February 15, was met with such polarizing reaction on Twitter. For everyone 140-character fawning over Gaga’s tenacity and extraterrestrial talent in the loving salute, others found her drag and kitsch to border on blasphemous.

Of course, poking and prodding outrage and testing our tolerance for performance was a habit of Bowie’s. It’s fitting that such a raucous homage to his legacy at the Grammy Awards by the pop star with the most experience in the realm of instigating and provoking would elicit the same kind of reaction.

Let’s be clear, though. No one but Lady Gaga could have performed this tribute.
For sheer significance, there is no other artist today who engages with such glee the orchestration of new personas and the reinvention of identity.

GoldSwirlGagDGoldSwirl

She started with a stirring, technically precise few bars of “Space Oddity,” lighting effects washing some of the most iconic Bowie images over her face.

She then sped through a dizzying medley of Bowie’s hits. “Changes,” “Ziggy Stardust,” “Suffragette City,” “Let’s Dance,” “Heroes,” and more: each one stoking an eruption of giddy applause from the audience, each one fading to the next hit all-too-quickly – Gaga barely had time to get into the groove before it was on to the next.

She peacocked and pranced and strutted and boogied. Her vocals were flawless. Her wardrobe channeled Ziggy Stardust, the performance styled to the Aladdin Sane album. There were robotic legs, a dancing mechanical keyboard, and psychedelic lights.

And there was Bowie.

There was Bowie’s joy. His exuberant weirdness. There was scale and spectrum and ambition, all of it at once scattershot and meticulous.

It was queer and cheesy and 100 percent committed by Gaga.
