OH yeah ZED is not DEAD… He lives in all his glory!

In tonights Apocalypse Update. (Link to Ha’aretz.)
Lebanese army on alert after reported Israeli Defense Forces build up on border.
had a gentle mist and/or rain going on all day here nahant. temps in the 60’s – no wind. twas getting crispy and dry – hadn’t rained in a month and that was just something like 1/10th of an inch.
hey greg b
got the Yodel running??
Wish I was still here…
hey ce – that is a link to a photo in an email – no one can see that but you
sorry –I guess that’s why I thought it would work.
Jimmy Page and Clapton were gods back then.
Led and Zed are what nahant said!
I’m starting to think that hold region is going to be on a tripwire again.
Have you all seen the story indicating that the AP’s John Solomon was helping the Bush White House spin the attorney’s scandal?
i almost used this one tonight
hey emerson how goes it?
since we are distracted with our own troubles – they figure its a good opportunity?
Always a good one!!
Dood, enjoying the cool, cool bay. You believe that heat?
was brutal here… we are not used to that kind of crap here!
I saw them at Madison Square Garden that tour. Robert Plant could barely walk, but he sang great!
Hey Suz! Thanks for the Led.
We had sheet lightning here (parts of the sky would just randomly light up, no zig zag, no sound) and then a very hard rain fell.
Here’s Al Sleet with more weather.
Right? Thought I was back on the EAST coast!
how kewl – sounds like perfect weather to be listening to zed
i like weather that is not boring.
I went to Congresswoman Gwen Moore’s Health Care Reform session in Milwaukee today. It was described in the local paper as a “spirited, but controlled debate.”
However, the paper did not print Gwen Moore’s best sound bite quote which was,
“The insurance companies and the pharmaceutical companies need to come to the table with something besides their appetites,” Moore said.
The heavily pro-reform crowd all stood up and applauded that statement. A large majority of the attendees were strongly favoring the Public Option. A University of Wisconsin-Madison professor gave a power point presentation on the bill’s specifics. He explained the reasons these proposals were in the bill. It was very informative and for that reason much less combative than other town halls I have seen in media reports.
However, the local newspaper seems to continue to carry water for the opposition by not reporting that many of them are there to “sound off” against the reform proposals because they simply don’t want President Obama to succeed. It wouldn’t really matter what the content of the bill was to them. They oppose it because it’s all about Obama. Just like Blue Texan posted earlier.
Yeah Margot! Love Hippy Dippy Carlin.
dayam i miss carlin
saw him live – in the 70’s when he was doing his 7 words…
I was talking to billbugs in Mass yesterday and he said it was 90 with 85% humidity UGH and we are going back to Boston for 11 days… I just hope it doesn’t get so hot and humid..
I am hoping to meet up with bb in on the 25th..
I am not sure.
It appears that Lebanon is beginning to coalesce around Hezbollah. The Lebanse PM is using the threat of Israel as a call for unity.
Hezbollah poses a second front threat to Israel should they choose to strike Iran.
did you report this on the event tracker report what happened at your event feature?
I may have to head down for a coffee too.
It’s been hot the past two days. Dog days of August are here.
Sounds like a Letter to the Editor opportunity, PonchoLefty? Thanks for attending. Madison is pretty progressive, right?
That’s right, when are you flying back?
What part of Mass do you live in? Maybe we can get a few others to show up for coffee??
I remember those days although I was in Nahant!
On the 20th!! Two Weddings to go to on successive Saturdays!!
This meeting never was put up on the event tracker board. The meeting was not entered on the calendar. I sent in the info, but nothing was posted. I don’t know why. I am disappointed with FDL because they passed on misinformation about another Gwen Moore event held last week that was totally unrelated to health care. Even though I repeatedly emailed that the event should not be on the calendar it stayed up there. So, IMHO someone at FDL owes Gwen Moore an apology for getting the information wrong.
Home of the Red Parrot, right?
I’m over the border in NH.
Cambridge is a fine middle ground though.
P.S. AP reports that militias are on the rise again. Who would have known?
Has anyone seen the BBC doc “Why we Fight”? On PBS tonite and it’s one of the best things I’ve seen. The most honest treatment of war and America I have seen by far.
Emerson- Madison, Wisconsin is possibly the most Liberal community in all of the Midwest. Their representative Tammy Baldwin is very progressive and as far as I know she is solidly supported in her district.
oh :( i’m sorry
there is an ‘add an event‘ feature also – you could have added it yourself :(
i’m so sorry
What a party! Too bad you don’t drink. Oh wait…
BB is in Webster We will be staying in Westford and we were thinking somewhere around there!!
What Gwen Moore was most successful at with her presentation today was the principal issues were explained coherently. Something the Dems have been having a hard time doing.
OK, that’s funny. I thought Mass in your first comment meant, like CHURCH.
Whew. Somebody cut me off. Or pour me one. Or…something!
Greets, Suz and Pups!
I do have to moderate as Dr’s would be mad if they found out… but still I will have to be a good boy *g*
Suzanne- The “add an event” feature seems to be set up to support an event that “I” am organizing. It did not appear to be set up to simply post an officeholders event. So, I did not use it.
hey funny – how’s seattle tonight?
Yeah, I’ve heard that. Don’t think I’ve been in Wisconsin, but that would be the place I’d want to go.
I never saw him, but I did see Lily Tomlin in Albuquerque. Very happy to see what a long career she’s had.
My local happy hour joint makes a delicious mock-mojito with tangerine and mint. Is there a way to do flavor without challenging your liver too much?
it was my understanding that if you learned of an event in your area that one could enter it.
this is a brand new gizmo and we are all learning how to use it
Damp. Cool this week, and now rainy.
Gonna miss the meteor shower because of the overcast…:(
same here funny – but i am enjoying the mist/rain/drizzle that has been constant today. was getting way too forking dry here
*sigh* i was looking foward to the meteior showers – i’ve got a great place for viewing with very little light
As Sergeant Schultz would say, “I see NOTHING!”
If I am very moderate I will be fine… my liver is doing fine… all my counts are right where they should be.. They had just misdiagnosed me with cancer and they got it wrong… Whew what a fucking relief that was to hear.
Gateway to Chelmsford!
Well, my e-mail is XXX(edited by mod)
Let me know when you are around.
No kidding. I know you’re not 100%, but not needing a transplant, wow!
Hope you have a great time.
nahant – let me know when you have the email addy and i’ll zap it to prevent it being picked up by spambots
uh oh…Suz could you modify that live email address, please?
you have mail…
good thanks suz don’t want the neocons bugging Greg
Hey pups. Inspired by Julie/Julia I bought rambutans and longans at the asian market. Longan took no courage, but rambutan….. scary. Both were delish.
They might send a digital virus that will cause me to mind meld with a tea-bagger.
hey sunny – i’m actually thinking about seeing that movie
read a good review of it today… at et’s place of all places.
OH Noseys! DOG forbid!!
jon stewart is going after the health care/i want my america back bruhaha…
Watching that guy from New Hampshire talk about he brought a loaded gun strapped to the outside of his pants really made me wonder about lead.
The sad thing is, you know there were many more people in that crowd carrying concealed lead.
Hell, I went to a wedding in Texas where I met a little old lady who proudly showed me her loaded pistol, she reached into her little pearl wedding-accessorized purse and showed it to me.
This guy wore it to a town meeting, where our President was speaking to the people of our country.
No one can deny now that this is racism, anger and fear stoked from FOX news.
Good baby jebus on a stick, can you even imagine someone showing up at one of Bush’s town hall’s packing heat?
The DOJ better step up on this or there will be deaths.
Couldn’t find a good youtube live clip-but one of the great Led songs
it certainly worries me – and the fact that there was arrest of a guy with a knife there…
I’m just shrieking over his commentator.
The stew is gettin’ darker!
Just think how you’ll feel when young black teenagers try to talk like you!
Pocket knife, according to KO/Rachel/LateNight. In fairness. But, yeah, why would anyone think they could show up to hear the pres with more than you can carry onto a commercial airline flight?! I mean, DUH!
dood – i listened to I on my ipod and just played that one from II. love that forking song.
they don’t think this shit through – remember teddy’s thread sun nite about the birthers.
same result – different style but the end result is the same. they do not want him as president.
Totally agree. Was talking about that in the last thread too.
I just went outside to look. No luck. Too much light all around.
link to teddy’s thread sunday nite
crap – i guess that explains why we are here on the thread instead of outside watching em — we are either rained out or clouded out or too many lights.
Yeah. Just wish the M$M would just tell them to grow the fuck up. I mean, how many of us wanted W for 8 years?
Deal with it, Bitchez. The pendulum swings. And you’re just lucky we’re too busy trying to make the country better for EVERYONE to make sure that what goes around comes around…
hey katy – how’s az tonight?
like a buncha spoiled brats whining because things are not going their way. a time out is long overdue
Oh…and that congolese translator that forgot who the POTUS is? How dumb was that. Frankly don’t blame HRC for being terse.
Even without the mis-translation, it’s kind of rude to remind a Sec of State that “you’re not the PRESIDENT.” Like she’d be there but NOT speaking for the administration.
I didn’t get the e-mail!
Time out nothing.
My dad would have given me one upside the head. My mom would have told me to quit cryin’ before she gave me somethin’ to cry about–and meant it.
And this is the party of personal responsibility and decency and family values…blah blah blah.
little humid but no rain or monsoon storms….. will have to go out and see if we can see the meteor showers
Shorter Goolsby: We can’t be broke—Treas can still print money!!!
i was going with time out to avoid that whole fantasy violence thing … :) but yeah, i know what you mean
fingers and toes crossed ya can katy
Where and when are the meteor showers?
shit had an extra . after the addy
starting late tonight, best in the small hours of wed-to-thurs, iirc. So, yeah, what Suzanne said. I’m under overcast, so if you can get out somewhere dark and enjoy, take me witcha in spirit, OK?
me too – i’m viewing them vicariously through others this year :(
good evening, all
just speedread my way through the thread. going outside to see if there are any meteors visible…local weather guy said visibility would be good, thanks for reminding me
and suzanne, thanks for the Zed Leppelin, er,…I am so confused!
Can’t see anything right now, will try a little later. Very crisp, clear night here, so that’s good.
I am on a kidney cancer list-serve and there is a couple in AU and he wants to have HDIL therapy since he cannot find a certified center in AU, this was the therapy which was billed at over 1/2 million each stay (2) and the insurance paying around $127,000 for one…..
trying to explain how this works, how I and no one can say that the cost would be XYZ….. what with employers plans, a million different negotiated contracts and regional differences.
I just gave up…..
I’ll try to catch it this week. Haven’t finished reading her blog posts and want to complete that first.
Very cool! Thanks!
its such a forking minefield you are having to negotiate at this time when your energy is best used at fighting this forking disease.
health care is a basic human right.
how are the skies at your place sunny?
Thanks. Yep, odd – I linked to full screen enlargements.
well, I went outside, it’s clear here and I saw moon, stars, maybe a couple of planets…but nothing moving. maybe it’s the wrong time of night–or too much city light
Way the fuck OT, Google ain’t my friend so I considered my “other Family”. smooches in advance.
I has a conundrum. My Uncle showed up, his daughter has had major medical problems since the day she was born, she is in town to find out if they will remove the trach tube she has had since she was born.
My question, what is this little girls relation to my father, she is my mothers brothers kid.
First cousin, niece?
Help a guy out please.
crap – guess i’m gonna have to wait to see them on APOD’s site
Try later or tomorrow. Or patience, or less city light…
oh dear.. i’m thinking cousin to you and niece (by marriage) to your dad
1st cousin to you, Busted.
Suzanne’s link says,
“But Tuesday night should offer a better view as the waning gibbous moon doesn’t rise until 11 p.m and the sky will be darkest before the moonlight interferes…”
The link is to the SF Chronicle so I guess that means it should be happening about now…but maybe over west coast, not midwest
I will go back out and give my eyes a little more time to adapt to the lighting conditions, as the link recommends…
Sounds like niece, but by marriage–no blood relationship.
nevermind, what Suzanne said. The website didn’t like my family tree chart…
Jimmy Page with a Burst thru a Marshall!!! I never saw Zep live but saw this (The Song Remains the Same) at a midnite movie at the Casa Linda Theatre in Dallas (anyone remember that?) in about ‘82 and was Blown. Away.! I said to myself, ‘Self-this is what you want to do’. Still playing music all these years later.
Politics: Well, the tea/wing/baggers have three more weeks before their schtick becomes passe. C’mon, y’all- bring it!
Me neither, Neuro. About 15 miles north of SF. The moon is a beautiful bright orange, though.
I knew you would know.
I know she is my cousin, and now Daddy is going to get a verbal beating.
First cousin Busted.. I have/had lots of uncles mother’s brothers and their kids ARE my cousins..
Oh and there lots and lots of them.
hey chuckindenton – glad ya liked it.
smooches back dood
OK, Daddy is STILL going to get a verbal beating. Thanks.
Wait! I knew, too! Where’s my smooches?!!!
A lick and a promise just won’t do.
Nah, I think a coupla folks got confuzzled by your question.
Suzanne is “correct as usual”!
Basically your dad’s BIL has a daughter with a medical issue, right? So this gal is your first cousin, and your mom’s niece, and also your dad’s niece, but not a blood relation (unless yer uncle is married to yer dad’s sister).
Anyhoo, sounds like somebody’s sticking their nose in a bit too far?
overcast:( mebbe tomorrow.
Thanks for the memories (sang Bob Hope…).
Thank you, I feel better now!
OK I have a question kind of like Busted’s.
What relation to me is my grandma’s sister’s granddaughter?
crap – no one has been able to see any.
fingers and toes crossed for tomorrow night.
my pleasure chuck
second or maybe 3rd cousins?
The Family Relationship Chart
doG bless teh Google!
either second or third cousin shit when you get that far out we just call them Kissing Cousins *G*
looks like 2nd cousins, because you and she both have the same great-grandparent
Now ya get a lick, and a promise.
thanks Suz,and thanks nahant and thanks Funny Diva and did I not know where to turn to when Google sucked?
Y’all are the shit.
yay funny diva
Likewise, buddy. Yer da shizz, too!
Go get ‘em!
sometimes da google just falls on it’s face
Heh, raining like hell right now.
Yeh. Sometimes it’s the in search terms. Sometimes it truly sux.
night Busted and best to your cousin… hope everything works out for her..
Thanks Suz, FWDiva
Edit: that is a cool little chart there!
*humming theme to jeopardy while waiting for katy to let us know*
I can’t believe I ate the whoooooole thing!
Wish I could find the Monty Python “intermission” clip…
Well, Pups…I’m fading fast here. Thank you all for the great company and excellent snark!

Thanks Suz.G’nite pups.
Hi Pups… late, late night…
