WKRLEM: I need a new muse

Excellent. That was my thought, too, but then again, hell, at this point any drug would be a new drug.

I always liked that video, too - the yellow Porsche Speedster, the ferry ride across the bay, the babe on the back of the boat, and, of course, the song itself. Nicely done, Huey Lewis et al, nicely done. It truly captures the Bay Area in that moment in time, before it all went to shit.

The aerial views of downtown, the TransAmerica pyramid, City Hall - all good. Makes me a bit nostalgic, but then again, nostalgia ain't what it used to be.

Did you notice the continuity error with the flower in the woman's hair? It switches sides as the video progresses.

A Muse once bit my sister. It was Urania, I wont tell you where.

Sixty Grit said...

In the library. With a candlestick.

I forgot to mention I always like the sax trio at 1:44 - soprano, alto and tenor - nice sound!

NYT Headline: "Facebook Ban Hits Trump Where It Hurts: Messaging and Money"

If messaging is free speech and money is free speech... access to the socials megaphones has got to be free speech.

Trump has initiated his own site,
https://www.donaldjtrump.com/desk
It's NSFW (not safe for woke) I urge everyone to hit it every day. The media will probably shadow ban it, then try to get it taken down and if that don't work get a Hawaiian judge to force it open to critical comments. Can someone add it to the blog roll?

XRay said...

Yep, good music.

SG, 73-74 I lived in an apartment building owned by Stephen Stills mother, 1200 block of California between Leavenworth and Jones. I know it was better just a bit earlier but even that late SF was fantastic, especially for an 'ol Florida boy. Good food, good vibes. Once saw a cable car derail while looking out the 2nd floor window down onto Cali st.

Lem at 6:18 I think/hope they are cutting their own throat by banishing DJT.

Very cool, XRay - I used to walk from Market street up to Coit Tower, then down the other side, then back up, through Chinatown and North Beach and points in between. Always made a point of stopping by the church of Saints Peter and Paul, and then wandering back to where I was parked. Not exactly the same neighborhood you lived in, but same part of town. How did you knock the cable car over? That's an impressive bit of work right there!

Dirty Harry had some great shots of SF. Great scene @ St. Peter and Paul.

Is the person who can do this seeing this request?

It's not in my purview or I would.

edutcher said...

Correct.

Since Troop is blog czar (sounds like something out of an Ahnold flick), he's the only one that has access.

Trooper York said...

I am trying but I have a new computer and I have to figure it out.

Trooper York said...

Got it finally.

Now I am going to go off and do some drugs.

Sixty Grit said...

Be sure to bring enough for all of us.

MamaM said...

It works. Thank you TY.

With Michigan first up for mention on today's post: 10:11am May 7, 2021

At 6:31 in the morning on November 4th, a dump of 149,772 votes came in to the State of Michigan. Biden received 96% of those votes and the State miraculously went to him. Has the Michigan State Senate started their review of the Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 yet, or are they about to start? If not, they should be run out of office. Likewise, at 3:42 in the morning, a dump of 143,379 votes came in to the state of Wisconsin, also miraculously, given to Biden. Where did these “votes” come from? Both were State Election changing events, and that is on top of the other corruption without even including the fact that neither state got Legislative approval, which is required under the United States Constitution.

That and the city of Grand Rapids in Kent County, staunchly Republican for years, and the last stop on the Trump Campaign tour, inexplicably flipped in the early hours, when the results had been been coming with Trump well ahead all through evening, before The Halt happened.

Excellent. Let us know if the Googpolice threaten to take it down.

MamaM.... Maricopa County Is Refusing to Provide Routers

MamaM said...

Yes, with the big question asked at the end, What exactly are county officials trying to hide?

While it appears as if the cluster that went on in Detroit was more of the same shenanigans they've pulled in the past, with extra paper ballots being rolled in while the count was being completed, it looks like something electronic happened in some of the other counties in MI. What seems most likely is a form of technical manipulation where votes for one were switched and counted as votes for the other. Whatever went on, the change in percentages that took place in the final hours, following evidence of a Trump lead, were astonishing to see and hard to reconcile with past voting patterns. I continue to believe something unusual and illegal took place in MI to make up the margin needed for Biden to win.
