Jeff Beck — Beck’s Bolero, Immigrant Song (with Jimmie Page), and The Peter Gunn Theme, at Beck’s 2009 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
What’s on your mind?
mzchief! how’s your side of the coast range? pretty forking rainy and windy here
Debt is slavery…Now, failure to be a good slave can land you in prison. Perfect…Because prisons aren’t overcrowded enough. Smoke pot? Go to jail. Can’t pay your bills? Go to jail. What’s next? Perhaps they’ll put people in jail because of the books they read?
Ravel smiles. Just a little.
hey robert — how’s soPA tonight?
I hope you are warm and snuggly. I guess we got the rain before you did and it’s a bit colder tonight so that means Carter ‘jammies with hood and feet. Now the blossoms are gone and little green cherries are on the trees. :-)
hey newton — how was your day?
tis blowing up from the south and has been blustery here all day — so far i’ve gotten 1.04″ of rain today.
Funny. Rained, sunny, hot, cold. All before 3pm.
How about your digs?
no sun. lotsa rain and wind. woke up and started the fire cause it felt like forking winter (brrrr)
Aloha, Suz, and LLN pups…! I just filmed tonite’s sunset and a fog bank rolled in…! ;-)
aloha tut — didja find a photo site so you can share that sunset? i’ve not had a sunset since last week
It’s the coast and it’s in the rain forest. Double trouble!
yup… i knew what i was getting into when i moved up here from a temperate rain forest in the ca santa cruz mts — i averaged 70″ of rain a year there — same as what i get up here.
i would just like to see the sun every now and then :)
Santa Cruz mountains are choice. Meanwhile, I have learned to love rain wear and the hoodie.
I haven’t tinkered with it yet today, I’ll probably try again either late tonite or late tomorrow…! ;-)
twas beautiful living in the redwoods. unfortunately, i couldn’t afford to be retired and live in ca. i don’t mind rain that much — tis the lack of sunshine and the damp cold that i’m kvetching about tonight — i’m tired of wearing a hoodie indoors
sweet.. didja remember your snow cap tonight?
We’ve got showers and 70s here. Very comfortable, very unlike most late May weather that I remember here.
Does anyone have a good book suggestion? I keep getting books that look interesting at the library and turn out to be duds.
Beck left the Yardbirds back Then Rod Stewart was there. Clapton passed through for a cup of coffee, then Jimmy Paige showed up on their doorstep. He brought in Robert plant, changed the name to Led Zeppelin, and everyone else went on to their own things,.Clapton to Cream, Beck to Truthgroup, who cares about Rod Stewart.
hey margot — are ya looking for some funny escapism fiction? i would recommend the janet evanovich stephanie plum novels… the first is one for the money, the second is two for the dough, etc. she’s just released smokin’ 17
hey strat — beck was first inducted into the hall for his work with the yardbirds. one of the rare musicians who have been inducted twice
how ya doing tonight?
oh good suggestion! I haven’t read the last few.
If you like Sci-Fi, try the Vorkosigan series by Someone Bujold. One measure of how good a book is is by how often it has answers to life’s questions.
I like her description “I don’t know if I love him. But when he’s cut, I bleed.”
I love her books. I have read most but they are re-readable I think. Space opera!
I love that middle photo:)
Well here are warm thoughts.
“The Unseen Sea” by Simon Christen
me too — i think she looks like she is doing grouch marx say the secret woid with her hand up like that
hey ppd — how ya doing tonight?
that is fantastic eye candy… thanks mzchief
I’ve re-read most of them, quite happily.
You might also try C J Cherryh’s 4 book set “The gates of Ivrel”. Her writing is …terse. Much is hinted at rather than said.
hi Suzzz — tired, alot to handle this week preparing for the memorial.
when is it scheduled? how’s mom doing?
I have to say, that’s one cute picture of Marcy in ’76
aint it tho…. and her testimonial is a hoot!
You’re welcome. Here’s another one that’ll make you think you’re toasty dry.
“Sahara Wonderland” by zoomion
Vimeo.Com features a lot of art video like this.
We’re watching over Mom carefully. Family is gathering this weekend. Memorial’s on Sunday.
are you getting any down time ppd?
many thanks strat
I have to say, that’s one cute picture of Marcy in ’76
aint it tho…. and her testimonial is a hoot!
aint it tho…. and her testimonial is a hoot!
I found the image of a beaming underage schoolgirl defending “consensual blowjobs” pretty squicky.
Huh. I never even thought about it like that.
thanks, Mzchief — we’re doing OK
hey ev — from what i understand marcy picked the photo of herself and wrote the testimonial. there are several to be rolled out this week.
I hope everything resolves itself in a good way and I send you all good thoughts.
i hadn’t either — i looked at it as a patriotic marcy – a photo taken in ’76 was my guess looking at the flag and her shirt
not much, Suzzz — I’ll hit the wall next week.
Yeah Levis shirts and corduroy pants were also big at the time. The Centennial was a huge deal and folks were excited about it.
ya gotta take care of yourself so that you can take care of others dood
Awwwww…just scrolling by….but the jujube pix were an irresistible lure. What a cutie….wha? 6 1/2 weeks? Already? Cripes, time flies.
Love those socks…if you hadn’t said they were socks that “look like mj’s” I’d have thought they were shoes and socks. Adorable with the flower petals behind her…and the groucho pose is cute, too.
Well, what a lucky grammy you are, Suze.
And so, good night, all.
i know i was… 1976 america seems like a very different country than 2011 america
from what i understand marcy picked the photo of herself and wrote the testimonial
But unless one knows Marcy or any of the context, all there is is a smiling 13-year-old defending giving adult men blowjobs.
Which is still better than torture, and also pretty Clintonesque, but squicky.
hey tejan — thanks — i got her those socks when i blew the budget for baby shower gifts :) they stay on too!
I know, Suzzz — we have to make it through this weekend
i had not thought of it that way until you mentioned it.
time for some sleep – be well
Doing okay. Slipped away from LLFDL to continue the back and forth with a former native retired to China that started with my opinion piece ( currently holding the position of #1 viewed)about the Ed Schultz flareup.
The Old Codger (his handle) live serenely in China after having lived 50 years in the states, and believes any conspiracy, including the buying up and gagging of the media by Randians is my overactive imagination; that whatever Hell we may think we are living in in America we created by ourselves….
why did he leave?
Anyone watching DS tonight?
hey things — the daily show? they are on vacation this week iirc. how ya doing tonight?
Jon has clips of Ted Nugent Huckabee’s last guest before he announce he is not running saying… well the front pagers should be handling these insults.
Its a rerun and the Lake didn’t cover this? Chicago is cold we had 90 degrees 2 weeks ago now we are around 44 degrees for a low I expect crop losses huge crop losses this year you should grow a garden Suz
I suppose that’s better than “we wanted to attract more pedophiles.”
There are enough elected officials here already.
He didn’t really make the why of retiring to China clear, except he loves the serenity he found there.
Must be nice to accept the censorship of China, yet take lightly our fears of such happening here.
Ed show has a problem about Laura? Considering what she has said about everyone? Or is this new?
You could read Freedom Riders, Sunday’s book salon choice.
It really is good.
You’ll both learn a lot and be inspired.
i believe the nugent thingie was covered — back when it first aired…
its been a cold and damp may and june’s not looking any better… grounds still too wet to plant
I think I’ll retire as well before the carriage turns into a pumpkin and the horses become mice. Sweet dreams all!
“Lullaby” performed by violinist Benjamin Beilman (piano accompaniment not credited)
gregg levine is the managing editor and who is responsible for the front page content per the about us page. you will find his email listed there — i would suggest writing him about it.
I missed an FDL take down of draft dogger Ted ? sob:(
It is a manufactured outrage even a lot of Progressives are falling for. Sure, he first called her a “right-wing slut” then self-corrected to “talk slut”, but neither was a reference to her sexuality, only a discriptor of her willingness to spout lies she really can’t believe herself in order to defend the extremist ideology of her paymasters and listeners….
no kidding.. perhaps he is one of those responsible for what has been created here….
hey mauimom — how’s your island tonight?
It sounds like a wonderful book, and I’m looking forward to the book salon.
It’s easy for him to deny the hell going on here from his comfortable pogota thousands of miles away.
He outsourced himself….
Psychopath test on DS by the guy who wrote men who stare at goats. I think the Lake needs its Psyche people to weigh in on the book and the GOP candidates.
must be one of them authoritative types that likes living under the iron fist of the chinese govt — probably also likes rove and thinks the bush administration was swell
Ok as long as context was given then its no worse than calling Clarence Thomas an Oreo.
I think Rove liked Bush in a leather jacket and cod piece either that or he really liked playing with dolls...who did his exact will.
just a pathetic drive-by to invite y’all to the FDL Book Salon on Saturday, where I’ll be hosting a discussion session on a great book about… you guest it: puns.
pun! i’m so enjoying this book — i can’t forking wait for your salon — you are the perfect host for the pun also rises
This weekend ? Your hosting I didn’t miss it?
The comments are too often painfully vitriolic at OpedNews. There is expressed so much contempt for writer opinions, other progressives–just too often off-the-wall.
That’s why I find FDL so much like Heaven.
The tendency of too many in the Progressive Universe to jump on the bandwagon of the rightwing in tearing down the few voices we have leading the charge to fight with us is disgraceful. You will never find the righties savaging one of their own….
Front Pagers should write this up you helped define Snark Dude!
tis on sat, 5/28
woops, my bad… pun’s is this sat… mauimom’s is this sunday
are you kidding? it’s the only one I could ever host!
you are the only one who could host it dood — when bev said she had the author and was looking for suggestions for host, there arose a chorus of ‘punaise’
You have to wonder just how much the Rove and Rahm trolls influence other blogs with paid commentors and people voting on net polls? Lets say 5% of comments but 30% on topics they care about.
( numbers off the top of my head we need actual numbers.)
Not to let the chat out of the bag, but I will be evoking the rollicking pun fests of FDL yore.
Cool MauiMom was talking this up weeks ago to me.
looking forward to it dood… g’nite pun
You should do a post on humor and why the GOP only seems to do put other people down humor.
Ok who is the new GOP frontrunner?
Ok who is the new GOP frontrunner who can beat Obama?
Ever see Fox’s attempt to mimic the humor of The Daily Show? The Red Line writers must think the nastier it is, the funnier….
congrats on snagging the lucky happy 100 things!!!
Join FDL as a founding member and make sure your on the FBI’s No Fly List!
No thank God… I’d rather watch puppy’s in a blender
I wouldn’t underestimate Ron Paul. The country may be ready for him now….
Cool I wish for a job I wish for a job a better than living wage job, a better than living wage job, a better than living wage job.:)
fingers and toes crossed ya find one things
Flabbergasted Beck could hit it like he did in the vid at his age.
Dude looks n plays like he was still 19.
Incredible vid Suz . . . . .
N I’m gone, by by, but that was insanely wonderful.
Yer Da Queen!
The nastier the funnier? I think putting others down is how stupid people respond to us making fun of their funny facts:) An look at Lefty vs righty humor is over do both now and historically when we get into power do we become what the right is now in humor?
hey larue — glad ya liked it — how’s sac tonight?
I remember in 2007 being pulled into the grope room and made to lower my jeans and underwear in front of other passengers. I should have just feigned nervousness and dropped them to the floor, but I had to make that flight to Chicago….
Of course, to see me in person, I guess I could look like a terrorist.
Hitler was waiting for a similar moment and he found it but Sarah has the emotion Ron does not.
I got stopped from Maine to Chicago but never had to get Nakid. I guess the feds just don’t like Brown Lefties???
Ron has the brains Sarah lacks.
Still, I would not wish Ron Paul on the nation….
Join FDL as a founding member and never have to worry about people threatening you on the phone. It helps to have the FBI listen to every phone call:)
I’m so gdamn white, I vanish when I stand against my white plaster walls….
Ron’s Austrian school Economics is just Pretentious Chicago School Economics with a Eurotrash name. Ron can complete a sentence without ADD and or drugs interfering though.
’bout time for me to head out folks. thanks for letting me hang out with ya tonight.
Ask the Feds next time if they like Arnold Films like Terminator and Predator. Then ask if they notice he does tend to star in films that involve him taking off his shirt but notice their is no female lead.
Then say your an FDL founding member as they take you to Guantanamo Bay an demand your own Private Cell!
Become an FDL founding Member and have your passport to Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Afghanistan rejected.
But FDL is working with Cuba and Venezuela to get its members an easy pass in and resident rates for healthcare!
Become an FDL member and become Over Qualified to teach economics in Chicago:)
Interesting. I know a lot about comedy, one of the classic comedy set ups is that people in power are taken down a peg. But when people in power take down less powerful it’s just cruel. George Bush kind of humor.
Become an FDL Commetor and watch your rankings as a sperm or egg donor rise!
I’m a card carrying member of FDL. If I was single I could use the card to help me pick up progressive women. I’d casually let it fall out of my wallet by “accident”.
Chicks dig progressive guys.
It lacks a difference weak mocking the strong has a difference. Difference is needed for humor to be something other than a put down.
Lefty Guys really dig Alternative Chicks Become a member of FDL and get laid with girls/guys you want to talk with the next morning.
