    Yeah, without make-up. Which bands would you RUN  from? I have two suggestions…

     

    Molly Hatchet

    http://img2-ak.lst.fm/i/u/arO/a872a03b63d14887b6513291c037ae33


    I’ve seen these guys on two continents and 7 different venues over 3 decades (holy shit…I’m OLD!). Molly Hatchet is straight up righteous, beer-drinking, honest to GOD music. THEY LOVE playing

    Bachman Turner Overdrive

    Never got to see these cats but they were my first ever Album purchase.

     

    As an aside, my dad was hammering the overtime when that BTO song was big…and all was good in life. we flew down to see our relatives in KY (uncle in the Air Force). Flew, FLEW!!! in 1975…that was money then, 4 passengers,  the plane had tables to sit around! We were treated like royalty. i guess it never ends, mrs coldwarrior and i hit the OT, our girls get a beach house once or twice a year, no worries,  and all is good in life. i hope that one of the kids remembers our effort later like i did here…it never ends, does it!

    i love both of these bands, however, in their heyday, they looked more like Teamsters than rock stars. And that asks the question made above.

      MTV killed the Radio Star. Before MTV any ole ugly mug could be a Rock Star, MTV brought in all the “Pretty Boy’s” and suddenly you had to be a super attractive movie star to be a Rock Star.

      an fyi, showed up in my twitter feed. We’ve got an Army vet w/ over 18 yrs of service in his last days and people are finding it difficult to spend time with him because his speech is impacted. Texts – anything – just to let him know he’s still connected to the world – that’s his final wish

      This is a BRILLIANT piece by Evan Sayet.

      Donald Trump is America’s first wartime president in the Culture War.

      while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

      I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party. I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

      Chris Wallace just had Jay Sekulow on. He kept badgering him and disrespectfully kept interrupting.
      Sekulow asked Wallace a question and was met with “I ask the questions, you answer”
      I wanted Sekulow to say something like, “I came here to be interviewed not deposed by a partisan hack”
      I have never liked Wallace and I never understood why they replaced Tony Snow with him.

      Chris was ok until Trump won. After Trump called the media the enemy of the people, he went on the warpath. A clear and present danger to his protected status/class.

      Too bad he doesn’t feel the same way about CNN/NYT

      I think that he has got worse, but I never liked his style anyway.
      To your point he has got worse since Trump. When Megan Kelly said, “We have a strategy to deal with Mister Trump
      Wallace was part of the we. But, Trump slapped him down immediately at the debate, and he became pretty timid.

      The “decadent, lazy, spoiled” Americans who aren’t good enough for Bill Kristol and who ex-conservative Bret Stephens wants to deport and replace with cheap foreign imports, the small towns that National Review’s Kevin Williamson says deserve to die are fighting for their lives. They want their country back. And they have more in common with Kid Rock
      than with the Republican elites who have turned their backs on flyover America.

      Yeah, I think low taxes, guns and strippers beats Joe Brzezinski any day. Instead of a debate, they could have a concert play-off.

      the thing with the chickenhawk neo-cons, the globalist-socialists, and the rest of the nevertrumpers is that they went to college with the liberals on the ‘other side’ . they smoked dope together back in the day and now they go to the same parties and have the same friends.

      they all are part of the same industry. this industry does not include the flyovers. the only thing the flyovers can do is service them. they are the ‘leaders of the movement’ both gop and dem, they make words and expect the rest of us to OBEY.

      well, that time is over and their industry is being threatened. this is the way they make money. kristol and the rest of them cant just up and move to get a new job, there arent any outside of the i95 corridor. they are threatened with uselessness by the likes of us flyovers and trump and they are fighting back with the only tools they have, empty words.

      when trump goes after china for ILLEGALLY dumping steel here, they will howl in disapproval because their masters told them to and they so want to be elite, so want to be part of the club. they so need and want to be art of the club that they will go against their own economic interests and sell out their neighbors.

      that they went to college with the liberals on the ‘other side’

      it started way before college. In Kristol’s case, he was literally to the manor born, daddy one of the founders of conservatism, mother a highly respected historian. It is absolutely a class/status issue and that, more than anything is their issue with Trump. What happened to William Buckley’s son Christopher? Nothing. Stasis. A couple crappy books, one of which trashed his parents – and he was done. But he is still ‘theirs’. They simply cannot imagine any world outside their own. Anything else feels like – and in truth is – an invasion, an absolute violation.

      And listen – from a female perspective – they are REALLY not happy about Melania. Their wives can have all the Ph.Ds in the world – but – go find a photo of Bill Kristol’s wife Susan. She may have been attractive when she was younger but she’s not that much older than Melania. That hurts. I was a trophy wife when I married Hubby because of the age difference and still fairly young. We both got shit you would not believe. I nearly punched out one guy in a bar. These people live on acquired status, it’s the air they breathe. They cannot stand it.

      Case in point. David Brooks. Who was certain a friend of his was uncomfortable in a sandwich shop because she didn’t recognize the Italian words (‘pomodoro’ appearing on every Olive Garden menu in the country notwithstanding).

      Recently I took a friend with only a high school degree to lunch. Insensitively, I led her into a gourmet sandwich shop. Suddenly I saw her face freeze up as she was confronted with sandwiches named “Padrino” and “Pomodoro” and ingredients like soppressata, capicollo and a striata baguette. I quickly asked her if she wanted to go somewhere else and she anxiously nodded yes and we ate Mexican.

      American upper-middle-class culture (where the opportunities are) is now laced with cultural signifiers that are completely illegible unless you happen to have grown up in this class. They play on the normal human fear of humiliation and exclusion. Their chief message is, “You are not welcome here.”

      Notice HIS self-applause for recognizing his own ‘insensitivity’ and his assumption of his friends humiliation. It will not occur to him that perhaps she didn’t like the food or the prices. She has no college degree, therefore incapable of swimming in his pool.

      The hubris is breathtaking.

      “I think the one possibility that’s of concern is that melanomas are known to go to the brain and they can bleed,” Dr. Stieg said. “They’ll have to wait for the pathology to come back. The good news is that five centimeters is a sizable blood clot, but in the frontal lobe, it should be well tolerated and hopefully he won’t have any neurologic deficits.”

      Supra-orbital craniotomy (often called “eyebrow” craniotomy) is a procedure used to remove brain tumors. In this procedure, neurosurgeons make a small incision within the eyebrow to access tumors in the front of the brain or around the pituitary gland. This approach is used instead of endonasal endoscopic surgery when a tumor is very large or close to the optic nerves or vital arteries.

      this crap is not even close to minimally invasive, clots dont get to 5cm, ever, period. this whole story is total bullshit. mccain has brain cancer and it metastasized from previous melanoma. brain tumors cause bizarre behavior and are not picked up on routine exam. something neurologically emergent happened.

      Stephen Colbert Calls Kellyanne Conway “Satan’s Trophy Wife”

      Left-wing comedian and all-around weasel Stephen Colbert put his stunning hypocrisy on full display this week by referring to White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway in a way that would have triggered massive backlash had he been a conservative speaking about a liberal woman.

      Neither progressives on social media nor liberal pundits in the mainstream media have said anything about this disparaging remark, despite the clearly sexist and misogynist nature.

      Stephen Colbert Calls Kellyanne Conway “Satan’s Trophy Wife”

      Left-wing comedian and all-around weasel Stephen Colbert put his stunning hypocrisy on full display this week by referring to White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway in a way that would have triggered massive backlash had he been a conservative speaking about a liberal woman.

      Romanians seeking asylum are in California, Pa. as part of U.S. Immigration program

      CALIFORNIA, Pa. — Most of the 40 or so Romanians who have moved to this community in the past two months do not speak English well, if at all. They do not know American customs and are unfamiliar with codes of conduct.

      And they had no idea that their sudden arrival would upset so many of the residents of this small town 35 miles south of Pittsburgh.

      More than 150 residents packed California borough council’s municipal meeting room Thursday evening to voice concerns about the influx of the Romanian refugees.

      The Romanians, who said they came to America to escape persecution in their Bucharest-area homes, have been processed through U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and have been released as part of the government’s Alternative to Detention program, which monitors flight from other nations. They are members of the group known as Roma, or gypsies, and are distinct from ethnic Romanians. Roma are minorities in many European states and often face prejudice and discrimination.’

      The federal program allows the immigrants find temporary homes, a cheaper and more humane alternative to keeping them in detention.

      But the Romanians, nearly all of whom are renting apartments from local real estate agent Vito Dentino, have had challenges in the community of fewer than 7,000 people.

      Angry residents at Thursday’s meeting said the newcomers throw trash around, park their cars in yards, disobey traffic rules, and are disruptive in markets. Others said that they’ve seen Romanians killing chickens and children defecating in public.

      And then there are the internet-fueled rumors about them.

      “We’re a very diverse town, we’re very open, but they aren’t assimilating to our laws,” said Pam Duricic, 59, a lifelong resident of California. “We are understanding that these are immigrants. But this is not the same scenario as our grandparents. They didn’t come here to raise havoc.”

      Council members, the borough administrator and police Chief Richard Encapera said they had no warning that the immigrants were coming and have had difficulty contacting federal authorities for assistance and explanations.

      But they also said there have been no instances of violence or aggression, and the immigrants involved in minor infractions have been duly cited and paid their fines.

      The first few Romanians arrived in mid-May and contacted Mr. Dentino about renting some of his apartment. Others quickly followed.

      “They call themselves gypsies,” Mr. Dentino said. “They throw trash in their yards, but I’ve talked to them about that, and they clean it up. I think people around here are just overreacting.”

      Ali George, 24, a native of Bucharest, said they were drawn to California by the same things that might attract anyone — a friendly, inexpensive place to live. Many in their group are related; others knew each other back in Bucharest.

      “We left our country, not because we are poor,” said a friend of Mr. George, who did not want to give his name. “We left because of racism and we’re seeking political asylum.”

      Still, the answers baffle many residents.

      Janet Bateman, who has lived in California for more than 50 years, demanded that council members contact federal authorities to explain the Romanians’ presence.

      “Charleroi didn’t get them. Brownsville didn’t get them. How did they come to be here?” she said. “This isn’t sunny California. This is California, Pa. We are a small town. How did the federal government come to know about us? There’s Pittsburgh, a big city. There’s Maryland, there’s Ohio, there’s West Virginia. Who threw a dart at a map and hit California, Pa.?”

      An ICE official contacted by the Post-Gazette said immigrants who are released decide where they want to live.

      “ICE does not place ATD participants in specific jurisdictions,” the official said in an email. “There are (ATD) program participants living in California. … [But] while ICE tracks all ATD participants, we cannot disclose where those residing in California, Pa., are from, nor can we confirm that all foreign nationals residing in California, Pa., are ATD participants.”

      California officials said some of the Romanians wear ankle devices to monitor their movements, but the devices are not for criminal behavior, borough police said.

      Mr. Dentino and other residents said they had interacted with some of the Romanians and found them to be pleasant but unaware of American culture and customs. Several suggested organizing a group of town officials and others, perhaps from California University of Pennsylvania, to initiate an outreach and education effort.

      Especially, Mr. Dentino said, because as many as 100 more Romanians may move to California in the months ahead — and there is no legal reason to stop them.

      Pete Ware, a graduate student at the university, said he’d be willing to help the newcomers. Other supporters said the suspicions of the neighbors are born out of fear and ignorance.

      “I have not had one problem with them,” said lifelong resident Lisa Buday, 50. “I say hi to them. … This is a community. Let’s be human. This is not a fast process.”

      California residents saw a sharp and sizable increase in the number of Romanians in the community less than two weeks ago, after a young man, related to several of those living here, died in an accident in Bucharest. Unable to return to their homeland, more than 100 of them came from across America to California to mourn together.

      The visitors stayed in the apartments of those already here.

      One of them, a 36-year-old Romanian who came with his wife and two young children from their home in Baltimore, said the last of the relatives would be leaving in the next day or two.

      “People here have been nice to us,” the man, who refused to give his name, said in broken English. “We say ‘Hello, good morning,’ and they tell the same back to us.”

      Charlene Redmond, 28, of California, said she met some of the Romani boys down by the creek and they invited her to dinner. She asked if she should wear a scarf and they said yes, out of respect.

      “We sat on the porch and ate and I learned some words,” she said. “And it was awesome.”

      RIP.

      George A. Romero, Father of the Zombie Film, Dead at 77

      NEW YORK (AP) — George Romero, whose classic “Night of the Living Dead” and other horror films turned zombie movies into social commentaries and who saw his flesh-devouring undead spawn countless imitators, remakes and homages, has died. He was 77.
      Romero died Sunday following a battle with lung cancer, said his family in a statement provided by his manager Chris Roe. Romero’s family said he died while listening to the score of “The Quiet Man,” one of his favorite films, with his wife, Suzanne Desrocher, and daughter, Tina Romero, by this side.

      Romero is credited with reinventing the movie zombie with his directorial debut, the 1968 cult classic, “Night of the Living Dead.” The movie set the rules imitators lived by: Zombies move slowly, lust for human flesh and can only be killed when shot in the head. If a zombie bites a human, the person dies and returns as a zombie.

      Romero’s zombies, however, were always more than mere cannibals; they were metaphors for conformity, racism, mall culture, militarism, class differences and other social ills.

      “The zombies, they could be anything,” Romero told The Associated Press in 2008. “They could be an avalanche, they could be a hurricane. It’s a disaster out there. The stories are about how people fail to respond in the proper way. They fail to address it. They keep trying to stick where they are, instead of recognizing maybe this is too big for us to try to maintain. That’s the part of it that I’ve always enjoyed.”

      advertisement
      “Night of the Living Dead,” made for about $100,000, featured flesh-hungry ghouls trying to feast on humans holed up in a Pennsylvania house. In 1999, the Library of Congress inducted the black-and-white masterpiece into the National Registry of Films.

      Many considered the film to be a critique on racism in America. The sole black character survives the zombies, but he is fatally shot by rescuers.

      Ten years after “Night of the Living Dead,” Romero made “Dawn of the Dead,” where human survivors take refuge from the undead in a mall and then turn on each other as the zombies stumble around the shopping complex.

      Film critic Roger Ebert called it “one of the best horror films ever made — and, as an inescapable result, one of the most horrifying. It is gruesome, sickening, disgusting, violent, brutal and appalling. It is also … brilliantly crafted, funny, droll, and savagely merciless in its satiric view of the American consumer society.”

      Romero had a sometimes combative relationship with the genre he helped create. He called “The Walking Dead” a “soap opera” and said big-budget films like “World War Z” made modest zombie films impossible. Romero maintained that he wouldn’t make horror films he couldn’t fill them with political statements.

      “People say, ‘You’re trapped in this genre. You’re a horror guy.’ I say, ’Wait a minute, I’m able to say exactly what I think,” Romero told the AP. “I’m able to talk about, comment about, take snapshots of what’s going on at the time. I don’t feel trapped. I feel this is my way of being able to express myself.”

      The third in the Romero’s zombie series, 1985′s “Day of the Dead,” was a critical and commercial failure. There wouldn’t be another “Dead” film for two decades.

      “Land of the Dead” in 2005 was the most star-packed of the bunch — the cast included Dennis Hooper, John Leguizamo, Asia Argento and Simon Baker. Two years later came “Diary of the Dead,” another box-office failure.

      There were other movies interspersed with the “Dead” films, including “The Crazies” (1973), “Martin” (1977), “Creepshow” (1982), “Monkey Shines” (1988) and “The Dark Half” (1993). There also was 1981′s “Knightriders,” Romero’s take on the Arthurian legend featuring motorcycling jousters. Some were moderately successful, others box-office flops.

      George Andrew Romero was born on Feb. 4, 1940, in New York City. He grew up in the Bronx, and he was a fan of horror comics and movies in the pre-VCR era.

      “I grew up at the Loews American in the Bronx,” he wrote in an issue of the British Film Institute’s Sight and Sound magazine in 2002.

      His favorite film was Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s “The Tales of Hoffman,” based on Jacques Offenbach’s opera. It was, he once wrote, “the one movie that made me want to make movies.”

      He spoke fondly of traveling to Manhattan to rent a 16mm version of the film from a distribution house. When the film was unavailable, Romero said, it was because another “kid” had rented it — Martin Scorsese.

      Romero graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh in 1960. He learned the movie business working on the sets of movies and “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood,” which was shot in Pittsburgh.

      The city became Romero’s home and many of his films were set in western Pennsylvania. “Dawn of the Dead” was filmed in suburban Monroeville Mall, which has since become a popular destination for his fans.

      It looks as if some of the manufacture is also being done in Huntington Beach in CA as well. They look as if they are 3D printing some Ruterford engines in CA as well as Auckland. Each engines takes about a week to 3D print in Titanium and each vehicle needs 10. Nine atmospheric engines and one exo-atsmospheric engine.

      The Turbo pumps by the bye are powered not by complex plumbing heavy turbines but by battery powered electric motors. A very innovative design and you get 150-250 Kg into a low Earth orbit for just $5 million bucks. The company is very into nano-satellite swarms and the like.

      Interesting you should say that. Rush Limbaugh said it too – that it used to be the democrats feeding the liberal media the talking points. Now it’s apparently the other way around.

      Local TV newscasts are in trouble as audiences disappear

      Fewer people are watching the local news, according to numbers from Pew. In fact, the three most important time slots—morning, early evening, and late night—for NBC, ABC, CBS, and Fox local affiliate channels have all seen a steady decline since 2007. Late-night newscasts have been hit the hardest, dropping 31%. Meanwhile, early evening news dropped 19% and morning 12%.
