    the screechy part is Adrian Belew. But then it gets sweeter, even lovely.

    Happy dreams or no dreams~

    Here’s the funny song that’s been in and out my brain all week:

    Talk Normal Laurie Anderson, Home of the Brave, 1985?

    msm should start explaining that NATO actually stands for “But we need heat THIS winter!”

    Maybe big oil co’s should/can (or have) taken their US$ubsidies to help pay Putin for his ‘latest generous offer’… what a cold mess

    SUNY! That is a lot more complicated. I used to live in Saratoga Springs and remember how there were so many colleges around. I worked at a nuke training/research facility 20+ yrs ago owned by usnavy but run by GE/Westinghouse. I would get the civilian execs to talk about meetings with other research institutions around like Renselear Poly etc. and the disdainful competition they would have for each other always surprised me. This was awhile ago but can’t imagine that territorial sense ever really wanes.
    Mind you this was a place that had all these dated posters up everywhere with cheezy cartoons expressing the need for secrecy and silence, reminding all that the chinese and cubans wanted to know. True enough but even I could see that suspicion extended between native corporate regimes.

    yes, for them to be open to new ideas and even ask for them is great! Parties here where I am value outside, private beneficiaries over local ideas, it seems w/r/t schools. This has been a trend for some time. Still crossing fingers (not holding breath) that with new state reps there could be a move away at the state level from that.

    I’m well Suz. And you?
    It was cloudy all day here. Then in the aft the sun peeked out as a wind developed. Tonight it was clear and a stronger wind from west and north. Two shirts and a hoodie for a walk.

    my senses and emotions are bludgeoned and I have that still wide awake but wiped out feeling. Intense game tonight. Intense news-politics-media nutso-freakout that won’t stop. Like they’re getting their kicks out of finding out how much we can pychologically withstand.

    hi all!

    One thing to say tonight (besides congrats to SF Giants fans):

    War of the Worlds: Mercury Theater, Orson Welles, October 30, 1938… outrage followed for days over manipulative, ‘cruelly deceptive’ broadcast… pleas, petitions plagued FCC… producer of the show John Houseman in his biography* said of the event “…the structural device that made the whole illusion possible. … In order to take advantage of the accepted convention, we had to slide swiftly and imperceptibly out of the ‘real’ time of a news report into the ‘dramatic’ time of a fictional broadcast. Once that was achieved — without losing the audience’s attention or arousing their skepticism — once they were sufficiently absorbed and bewitched not to notice the transitions any more, there was no extreme of fantasy through which they would not follow us.”

    in KC no less!
    The Giants have shut Royals out this series, too. I get the feeling if there were 9 or 11 or 13 games, these two teams would take it to the disatnce. Extra innings tomorrow?

    openhope:) SF can have their dynasty. KC is pumped just to make it thru wildcard sets to ALC championship. Everything else has been gravy. And to do as well as this team has in the series, has sent fans to the moon. We’re already happy with any outcomes. Any other year I might root for the giants. But KC in it this year has got me to listen to baseball again, which I basically swore off thirty years ago.

    imo, there’s a similar dynamic all over. People see a power vacuum, and seek to exploit it, but that itself was created. The economic uncertainty, after the war, after 9-11. Relatively minor shock doctrines playing out in races all over country. Especially since ’10, ’12… corruption being discovered all over, are opportunists who saw the writing a few years ago… few are really paying attention at all to the patterns…

    oh sheeeeet! with the lapse in internet I totally spaced that!
    I kept thinking if you’d upped that last season and I was reprising it.
    COMPLETELY spaced it. Wow!
