#6WordFortuneCookieAnswers Part Two

Posted in Poem, The Internet by chamblee54 on January 31, 2017






1/3 Now, the old motivator is being trotted out. If you are silent in the face of evil, you aid the oppressor. Or something like that. 2/3 What this chestnut doesn’t say is that maybe the evil you are reacting to is a fake out powers that be want you to react to over react 3/3 They can then continue to do what they intended. It is time to be smart. When you are goaded into foolish action, you are complicit. 10:56 AM – 31 Jan 2017

As you have heard a thousand times by now, we are in deep doo doo. After long narcotizing dysfunction will set in, the powers that be will pause, and continue to line their pockets. When every body is crying wolf, the sheep are confused. This is the plan.

If you can’t say anything good, write a poem. The project for today is a companion to #6WordFortuneCookieAnswers. Some twitterbird started a hashtag, PG copied the results, and a poem was born. The original was 20 lines, which was split in half. Today’s effort is part two.

@BernieSanders We should be looking for guidance now not from pollsters and political consultants, but from leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr. @chamblee54 @BernieSanders please take your own advice and shut up you have caused enough damage @commonsense quit looking at twitter and get to work. The spell check suggestion for @BernieSanders is @Bandleaders.

This project may be more work than anticipated. There are few unused folders. The next step is to go into the archives. The folders from 2013 have been little used. The first one to try is a cemetery collection. The first picture went smoothly, but number two is proving troublesome.

The first podcast is a New Yorker story, David Gilbert Reads “Underground”. It is about a New Yorker. He fusses with his bf, has lunch with his mother, and picks up his twin daughters at school. While in the subway station, a homeless man jumps on the train tracks. The hero lives a life that connects to PG at a few points, but overall seems like science fiction.

Today is a good day for podcasts. There are new episodes from You Must Remember This,
Sex with Strangers, and RISK. “Southern Folk: Donna Edwards, Dave Kendall and Randall Robinson share stories of growing up down South.”

Yesterday, the guest on WTF was Robbie Robertson. The Band had always seemed a bit public radio, but Mr. Robertson told a different story. The Hawks were a “other side of the tracks” juke joint band, before they met Bob Dylan. They were a typical band, with heroin, and fights over royalties.

@ChrisCrocker Do not describe people of the Alt-Right as “eccentric” My public hair is eccentric.Call a fucking Nazi a fucking Nazi.@chamblee54 alt-right is a bunch of losers in mom’s basement third Reich would laugh at them calling them fucking nazis is a compliment

More pictures are working. Progress is being made. Sex with Strangers, is the current podcast. This show is titled “War on Porn.” It is about straight, commercial porn. When a performer tests HIV+, the industry shuts down until it is resolved. The last episode of industry related HIV transmission was 2004. The rest of the show deals primarily with a digital content law in the UK, which will largely ban adult content from the island.

The picture is finished now, and posted above. Other than making a tacky picture, there were relatively few interruptions. Before leaving, there is a story to be told.

In 1966, PG’s dad won a tv in a contest. It was black and white, about 19″ diagonally, and had UHF channels… a first for PG. At the time, channel 30 was the only UHF station in Atlanta. About a year later, PG got home from school, and turned the tv to channel 17. At four o’clock, a commercial from an ad agency played, followed by a movie, “Della.” It would be a few years before billboard company owner Ted Turner bought channel 17.

Getting back to that sunday afternoon when a new tv arrived. This was the first season for the Atlanta Falcons. That sunday afternoon, they played the Packers in Green Bay. This team was coached by Vince Lombardi, and was on track to win the first NFL-AFL championship, later known as the Super Bowl. The Packers beat the Falcons 56-3. A few weeks later, the Falcons beat the N.Y. Giants, in the original Yankee Stadium. It was the first victory for the Falcons.

Richard Spencer

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on January 24, 2017









Richard Spencer was not well known before Inauguration day. He was an alt-right star, who made noise about white nationalism. Mr. Spencer became a national celebrity when he was sucker punched during an interview. Many people label Mr.Spencer “nazi,” and say he deserved it.

‏@machinegunkelly I’m super proud of all my friends walking in the women’s march today. also proud of whoever punched Richard Spencer in the face
@rembert the coward who punched richard spencer needs to come forward and apologize for cutting me in line
@ItsTonyNow the Nazis who spent all year threatening to put people in ovens are now extremely triggered by Richard Spencer getting laid out
@catchdini “Punch them” is, like, Nazi 101, I don’t see the problem here
@KaraCalavera Who said punching Nazis is wrong? Punching Nazis is the most ‘Murican thing one can do. Captain America does it!
facebook: I think punching that nazi was the wrong approach. Should came at him face first with a baseball bat (15 like, 2 love, 1 ha ha)
Fuck Racism, Nazi’s get punched. I thought the picture of Richard Spencer getting punched would make a good hardcore band style shirt.
@20committee Two months ago, Richard Spencer had trouble getting 200 people to attend his “big” DC event. Now he’s a celebrity. Way to go, antifa!

Many onlookers use “nazi” as a label for Mr. Spencer. Apparently, nazis are so odious that public assault is encouraged. (Mr. Spencer “says he is not a Nazi. In an interview on Saturday, he said he was a member of the alt-right, which he calls “identity politics for white Americans and for Europeans around the world.”) The term nazi is usually used to refer to the Nationalist Socialist party, of Third Reich Germany. These “real” nazis were not people that you should mess with. If you hit one in the face, you would probably get a bullet in return. Calling Richard Spencer nazi is a bit of a stretch.

PG saw this, and was horrified. If it is ok to punch nazis today, who is the target tomorrow? Are we a civilized people, or have we descended to the level of der fuhrer? Internet logic (oxymoron alert) did not take kindly to this. @chamblee54 #RichardSpencer it is now OK to hit someone because you disagree with them we are less civilized than we were before @adamd243 Punching Nazis is how we saved civilization before, buddy.

A facebook friend was disturbed by the spectacle. In the comments, someone went full Godwin and produced an alleged Hitler quote. ““Only one thing could have stopped us – if our adversaries had, from the first day, smashed with the utmost brutality the nucleus of our movement.” A reddit thread comes to the consensus that the quote is fake. There was a lovely comment: “I doubt anyone has any real evidence whether he said it or not. Probably not worth taking seriously. If someone has a good point to make, they can make it without quoting historical figures.”

Twitter had a link to an essay, When You Punch A Nazi In The Face, You Punch Me In The Face. The essay said many of the things PG felt. We are a civilized people. When you hit one person, you are also hitting me. The essay was great, until you got to the last line. “Gawken is a satirical publication.”

Some times you just want to give up. Pictures for this commentary on internet badassery are from “The Special Collections and Archives, Georgia State University Library”.

Two Tweets

Posted in Library of Congress, Politics, Quotes, Race, The Internet by chamblee54 on December 2, 2016













Twitter can be a fun place to visit. Yesterday, this item floated ashore: @BlakeTheSequel “@kat_blaque GIRL. I have gotten into it with soooo many people over RuPaul’s coonery w/regards to Lucien Piane. I got put in Facebook jail!.” Urban Dictionary defines coonery as “Acting in such a manner as to perpetuate black stereotypes in society such as music videos solely about cars, money and women. / Pejorative term to describe behavior that is seen as unbecoming of African-Americans.” As we will see in a minute, this is a versatile term.

Music producer and songwriter Lucian Piane sometimes works with RuPaul. Mr. Piane, aka @RevoLucian, might have emotional problems. There is a series of tweets, presented here with the naughty word StarrBootied out. @RevoLucian“If black people stopped being so ashamed of themselves we could call them n*****s and they would laugh. Backwards shit.” @RevoLucian“I love @RuPaul, and he’s the wisest n*****r I know”@RevoLucian“If Jews stopped the Holocaust victim shit we would all get along. #truth” @RevoLucian“Someone please explain why Chinese guys have such tiny dicks…” @RevoLucian No drugs. Just divine inspiration.

@RuPaul has replied. @RuPaul “If you only knew how fragile your own mental health is, you wouldn’t be so cavalier.” @RuPaul “Show some compassion. Please.” @RuPaul “You can’t expect your factory job to come back AND continue shopping at Walmart.”

@chescaleigh “I’m not offended by ppl calling me Franny, but i think it’s telling that randoms online use in an attempt to speak down to me @JayShabazz” PG has interacted with Franchesca Ramsey before. It come to an end. @Chamblee54 “@chescaleigh when you say the n-word you demean yourself it is in your best interest not to use it” You are blocked from following @chescaleigh and viewing @chescaleigh’s Tweets. #tweetthatgotmeblocked

@JayShabazz aka Rick, is a “Breitbart and Sowell fan! I love the context, facts and logic! kinda agnostic. I also love comic books.” He has 118 followers, or 20 more than @Chamblee54. He may, or may not, have sent out a tweet yesterday. (Pro tip: If you see something that interests you, copy the link. You may not be able to find it later.) The comment was something about Barack Obama having Larry Sinclair killed in a hit and run accident. Maybe it was @RevoLucian who sent the tweet.

Larry Sinclair was a minor celebrity a few years ago. He peddled a strange story about a cocaine fueled “date” with State Senator Barack Obama. Mr. Sinclair gave a bizarre press conference, which ended with Mr. Sinclair being arrested. A book was written, Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair: Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder? The book was published after Mr. Obama won the election.

November 14, 2011 is the date of the alleged hit and run accident. If you google “Larry Sinclair hit and run” you will see some reports from sketchy websites. Google does not seem to have much information about whether, or not, these reports are accurate. Wikipedia does not have a page for Larry Sinclair. The Larry Sinclair website will harm your computer. For some reason, Larry Sinclair seems to have vanished. Pictures today are from The Library of Congress.

Twice a week, Marc Maron puts out an episode of WTF. This is not Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. Mr. Maron is a retired drinker/druggi. If he can dance, he keeps it to himself. The show is ten minutes of chatter, and an hour of talking to someone. Mr. Maron has a gnarly personality, and more than ten minutes of solo talk is too much.

WTF usually bats about five hundred. The celebrities alternate with the standup comics. Some of the stars were not that great. The comedy talk can be inside baseball. Once, PG turned off the show when conversation turned to growing up with a jewish doctor for a father.

Out of the last five episodes, four have been great. David Crosby, Sarah Jessica Parker, Ron Howard, and Roger Waters made their way to the garage. Tomorrow is Paul Major and Jesper Eklow. It might be more talk about jewish doctor daddy issues. There are lots of other things to listen to.

The first star was David Crosby. The man is a legend in his own time, or his own mind, or both. Croz admits that the Byrds fired him because he is an asshole. PG has always been fascinated by the contrast between the pretty, pretty sound of CSN, and putrid personalities of Stephen Stills, and David Crosby. Graham Nash is the most patient man alive. Neil Young, who?

“You are blocked from following @thedavidcrosby and viewing @thedavidcrosby’s Tweets.” Before blocking @chamblee54, this conversation took place.

@chamblee54 @thedavidcrosby Did you ever meet Bing Crosby?
@thedavidcrosby@chamblee54: @thedavidcrosby Did you ever meet Bing Crosby?” Yes I did
@FoxH2181 @thedavidcrosby @chamblee54 DC tells the late robin williams about it on youtube.

PG is easily amused, and decided to go for part two. David Crosby tells a story of going to see the symphony as a young boy. He is impressed by the sounds that are produced by all the elbows sawing on violins at the same time. David Crosby winds up as someone that likes to collaborate, to be a part of a team. At 24:01 of the show, David Crosby says, regarding CSN, “We do shit together.”

@chamblee54 @thedavidcrosby David Crosby on CSN at 24:01 “We douche it together”
David Crosby retweeted your tweet. @chamblee54 @FoxH2181 @thedavidcrosby David Crosby on CSN at 24:01 “We douche it together”

Sarah Jessica Parker was on the next monday. PG saw a few episodes of Sex And The City, so it was familiar territory. It turns out that SJP was a child actress, dated Robert Downey Jr., and had a crush on Harold Pinter.

Ron Howard appeared three days later. PG is the same age as Opie, which helps PG fit in to the The Andy Griffith Show. Mr. Howard has a nice guy reputation, but tells a story about being an asshole. It involves raising money, and John Belushi, so maybe he can be excused.

During the previews for Apollo 13, there was only one negative comment. “This movie is typical hollywood bullshit. There is no way those guys survived.”

Both Miss Parker and Mr. Howard were fun to listen to. The next monday, PG thought that there was sure to be another unknown jewish comedian. Instead, the guest was Roger Waters. Pink Floyd was famous for music, and stage shows. The individuals are fairly anonymous. Mr. Waters told about his story. His grandfather died in World War I, and his father perished in World War II. The plans of world leaders, for never ending war, do not impress Mr. Waters.

Pictures today are from “The Special Collections and Archives, Georgia State University Library”.
