Hilarious Easter lunch conversation between 2x late teen / early twenties youth, 1x older middle age (and v. clever in many ways) conspiracy theorist , 2x middle age Australian conservatives (wife and I) and 2x 90 year old South African ultra conservatives.

130 killed in Easter attacks eh?

That’s a Christchurch multiple of 2.6 and counting.

No doubt Sri Lankan politicians and newsreaders will be adopting christian symbols in solidarity with the victims, who were mostly churchgoers on an Easter Sunday.

The sandy place. Nobody says "raghead" anymore - it's "choggy" or "flip-flop."

EG:

Squaddie #1 "I just signed the line for a six-monther in the sandy place; I'll be leaving brassic-park and having a millionaire's month when I bounce!"

Squaddie #2 "You bone fucker, the flip-flops are going bezzy because of some Danish cartoons. £50 says a choggy shovel-recce sends you to Headley court!"

Squaddie #1 "Watch my fucking trace, y'cunt!"

(they shake hands making the wager official)

I’m sure no-one has forgotten that Earth Day is Monday 21 April while Easter resonates on Sunday morning. Which is apparently the third day after Friday 3.00 pm. Something I could never wrap my head around.

"community liaison"



Police boss blasts 'unacceptable behaviour' of officers filmed skateboarding and dancing at Extinction Rebellion protests in London

Police officers have been criticised by their own commander after being caught on camera dancing with Extinction Rebellion climate protesters and skateboarding in the street.

Met Police officers were spotted larking around with activists at Oxford Circus and skateboarding at the Waterloo Bridge blockade, where a ramp has been set up.

The videos emerged as the number of arrests so far during the environmental protests rose to 428 on Thursday.

Metropolitan Police Commander Jane Connors said she was "disappointed" by a video appearing to show officers dancing with protesters.

Obviously Jesus was crucified west of the international dateline, resurrected east of it, probably in California. Therefore, losing a calendar day.

The toll in Sri Lanka has risen to more than 200 people dead, about 35+ of those being foreigners, and 500 injured. And now I read there's been another explosion. Still anticipating "solidarity" for affected Christians (they did target a church after all) but still no response from "true leader" Jacinda. Oh well. :violin:

Also, it's a bit funny that in English, it's Easter, but in Swedish, it's "Påsk." Derived, I think, from Pesach, a Jewish holiday, while Easter comes from Ēostre, a Pagan festival. It's weird. It should be reversed. Old Nords were known to adopt Pagan rituals, not Christian or Jewish. That's why Christmas in Swedish is "Jul" (Yule).

Still, I don't think I've ever heard it called "Yule worshipping". Strange.

Why should she? No double standard there because....... I don't know, ask fly-by Homer. If Jacinda were to do the decent thing the hordes of murderous Islamophobic racist white supremacists would come out from under her bed and they've got RHETORIC. Have some understanding.

3.) I’ll be voting Democratic, as usual. Republicans by and large are an odious bunch with repugnant policies, and Trump doesn’t deserve to be dogcatcher, much less President. If we can get a Democratic President, House, and maybe even the Senate, then maybe we can get things done.
That's what people are afraid of.

I see Matt made a brief attempt at a reality check but the hyperbolic caravan of myopia rolls on. The highly educated really can be amongst the most politically deluded. Their opinions aren't subjective, they're scientific FACT, and they know what's best for the plebs. One of the amusing features of WEIT is that they really don't know that they're an echo chamber of sorts.

Speaking as a non-Yank, I really wish that the Dems would take their meds, or the GOP would learn some science and also learn something from Trump's successes. Then Trump can be discarded and the World can get back to tackling environmental isssues without the Marxist baggage. Trump is a discount Churchill, good for an emergency, no good in peacetime.

Does anyone else share this problem with me? I find that I can't stand much of the music I listened to in the 1970s and 1980s. So much of it now sounds like childish, stick-it-to-the-man, bullshit. I guess I have changed, but the music doesn't change.

I heard Boston's song "Peace of Mind" the other day and had to shut it off. These fucking guys are total hypocrites. They pretend they are not competing with anyone while simultaneously doing everything they can to be popular rock stars. They are getting all the bitches, drugs, and money, while telling their "fans" to not worry about shit. Total crap. Haha.

When I was a whiney, depressed, beta I used to love this kind of music. I would wallow in it. Today I am a much more accomplished guitar player and singer and I find myself playing the music that I used to look down upon. Funny... that's all.... just funny. A friend suggested we play "Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree". I just played a few verses and found myself feeling great joy. What a silly piece of music.... but it really is a celebration. I played it with a big smile on my face.

Anyway... here is a comment about the difference between Chuck Berry and Bruce Springsteen... and I think I agree with this guy.

The Hockaday girls' school in Dallas has been a bastion of Snooty White Feminism & Upper Class Bohemian Chic,
going-back to Gertrude Stein & Alice B. Toklas touring the school in 1935 (a visit endlessly self-mythologized by the school).

It's the kind of place where 'notable alumna' are more notable for their parents' achievements (the daughters of George W Bush, Mark Cuban, Ross Perot) than their own (Lisa Loeb).

Now the Hockaday School is embroiled in a schism, between the old guard-- who savor their Feminist Entitlement & Privilege to effortlessly embrace both White Gown Cotillions and Hairy Legged-Bra-Burning/ vs. a cretinous SJW new guard-- who attack the Trappings of Privilege, in favor of the Symbolism of Squalid Rebel Insurgency. (They aren't actually renouncing the actual benefits of their Privilege, of course. Just the embarassing white gowns. And female pronouns.)

Anyhoot... there's a pretty good article about the schism in the Dallas Morning News...

Judging by my mp3 player - I'm still enjoying the old stuff that I used to...

Johnny Cash
Warren Zevon
Tom Petty
The Ramones
Husker Du
Elvis Costello (a bit)
...

Though as I recall - it used to be the love songs that were seen as cliched and over done - rather than the activisit / protest songs. Now things seem to have flipped around.

Obviously Jesus was crucified west of the international dateline, resurrected east of it, probably in California. Therefore, losing a calendar day.
If we can't put our faith in global corporations like Google - what immortal entities are we to trust?

Ah, but the Dems don't consider it peacetime anymore. That's the extent of their lunacy. They think the election of Trump marked the beginning of another civil war.

They need to disband the whole sodding party and start over from scratch. If I was a septic Democrat and saw the complete meltdown over Trump, I would have lost all confidence in their ability to think straight, let alone govern. In 2010, 215,000 attended the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear, led by two staunch Democrats (one posing as his conservative pundit counterpart), to argue against "vocal extremes demonizing eachother" ... and "intended to promote reasoned discussion." Before Trump got elected and polls showed Hillary would sweep the vote, Democrats urged people to be calm and understanding, to mend, heal, restore. What the fuck happened?

Still anticipating "solidarity" for affected Christians (they did target a church after all) but still no response from "true leader" Jacinda. Oh well. :violin:
Look at the tortured language the BBC uses:
A wave of bombings that killed 290 people in Sri Lanka on Sunday was carried out with the support of an international network, officials said.

The government has blamed a little-known local jihadist group, National Thowheed Jamath, although no-one has yet admitted carrying out the bombings.
The only mention of muzzies reports them as victims of a previous attack. Nowhere does the story mention islam.

Can't say I have the same issues. My musical taste(s), or lack thereof, are pretty much indelible - when an act or artist makes the grade and enters my archive, they're pretty much guaranteed "air time" until I kick my breathing addiction. Some of my earlier choices may be a bit "cringe" but I'll still give them a play and will ignore any pointing/laughing they prompt.

First album I ever bought - "Ace of spades" by Motörhead is constantly playing.
The Sex Pistols (especially "Nevermind The Bollocks") - as above.
The Cure - still love them.
Pink Floyd - hippies (*spit*) but great music, constantly playing - "Wish you were here" (the track) is my #2 all-time song.
Bauhaus - very much an acquired taste, I'm still a huge fan of their stuff("Hollow Hills" is amazing!).
The Cult - brilliant "basic" rock music.
The Clash - Early stuff is best.
Lots of Metal acts, happily blasted at ear-shattering volume, fuck the naysayers.

Then there's my #1 act - Nine Inch Nails - Trent Reznor is a god! Love his dark/warped lyrics. Consider the following...



I love the mechanical drone in the above track - it sounds almost identical to the metadynes in a Challenger tank turret on full traverse-demand.

Anyhoo, just my shit-posty 2 cents.

Over the years I have gotten thoroughly bored with much of the music that I grew up with and some of it I have come to actively dislike. The example that most typifies my current attitude is The Who. They were one of my favorite bands for decades, saw them multiple times in concert... and now I can't stand them. I think part of it is boredom, part of it is me growing up, and part of it is annoyance at Townshend's often abominable (to me, anyway) lyrics. This may be sacrilege to many here, but today I just think of the Who as an immature and merely adequate band who were highly overrated.

Unfortunately, there is nothing from today's music to inspire me, so I guess I'm stuck with the"classic rock" that hasn't yet bored me to tears. And classical.

TL;DR - we're getting old, dude.

I'm still hooked on Mike Oldfield (maybe not all of his later electro ventures, but the classics still have a strong hold on me.)
