There's something wistful about that picture, as if Madame can't wait for those nice June evenings on the bench, her arm around her sweetie.
Well, we've certainly got as much snow as I've seen for the final turn into March. People are weary of it, but the up side is that you know it won't be around for long...
Watch and listen to this. ("You Never Need Nobody" by The Lone Bellow).
I don't know why this comment is failing.Watch and listen to this. ("You Never Need Nobody" by The Lone Bellow).I've tried to publish it two times prior to this attempt.Maybe Blogger doesn't like music.
Professor, someone is deleting my comments.
Interesting. It appears that comments that link to YouTube are deleted.
... we've saved you a seat.I'm on the food chain.
Google has banned me again.
Interesting. I tried to post this link:You Never Need Nobody by The Lone Bellow.Google banned me. Why? Is some idiot at Google playing God again? Professor, you should find a real server. I could host it for you easily. This is awful.
Wrong link. I tried to post this: You Never Need Nobody.Strangely, Google deleted my previous link. What goes on?
Wow. Google is deleting very well.
"Don't be evil."
FYI: I have tried to link to a YouTube video several times. It's a nice song by The Lone Bellow. Blogger has deleted all of my links and the comments that included them. What goes one?
Google is evil. Ban that!
Google's board of directors suck armadillo dicks and spit. They laugh and then throw up in their shorts.
While away from the computer... it occur to me that the Woodward White House imbroglio is one similar to what Rush calls his media tweak.Rush says something "controversial" and he gets a lot of the leftist press talking about him.In the case of Woodward however... Woodward tweaked the White House... and he got them to respond in such a way that it guaranteed to make news.
"I work at blogger" is shorthand for "I pick nits out of Kim Jong Un's navel and then eat them. I like them with mustard. I also lick alpaca balls for fun."
Here's the dastardly link: "You Never Need Nobody" by The Lone Bellow.
Wow. That one worked, for now.
Triumph is thrilling.
Bob Ellison said...Professor, someone is deleting my comments.Two of mine in an earlier thread were eaten or deleted and so was one of Victoria's in the same thread. I emailed the Professor, but never heard back. So much for policy or else they haven't released them yet.
Maybe they're trying to find out what Charlie Foxtrot Blogger has rained down upon us this time.
We have not deleted any comments today.
"Professor, someone is deleting my comments."I'm not deleting anything and I'm not seeing anything in the spam filter, so there's nothing visible from here.
As weird as this sounds, I honestly think Google Blogger just borks some comments sometimes. I've had the occasional comment disappear myself, and not just here but other Blogger sites. I just think the site's backend software just occasionally fails. Call me crazy.
@Althouse, there's something wrong with your web site. I can't get to anything older than "Woodward's Gone Rogue."Google don't love you, lady.
(But thanks for reminding me why I left the Midwest!)
(The snow, I mean.)
Hmmm, and I got the dreaded "double post."
Well something deleted them because they appeared normally on screen but then disappeared after refreshing--twice. At this point, I blame Blogger because it's so easy to do so.
Google is evil. Leave.
Lanny Davis says the same thing happened to his blog.
I posted several safe-for-work comments from both Android and Windows 8. They disappeared without notice or error. Then the assholes at Google asked me for my cell phone number. I complied, and now I can comment.This is evil.
I confess.I was the one who deleted Bob Ellison's posts. I was bored during Idol. Those singers tonight! Aack!I had to do something.I prevented Big Mike from seeing old posts.For my next trick, I will make the snow disappear. But this one may take a while.
Call me a fiend for doing this. I will delete it!!!Muahahahahaha!Okay, I'll go walk the dog now.
So, I had a crabby day today because my "Mars" professor, who is usually an equal opportunity grumbler about stupid political tricks played with the NASA budget (having worked on a number of projects that got tossed out due to regime changes) made a gawd awful unfactual snark about Jindal not wanting to spend money to monitor seismic activity and volcanoes. You all remember it... when we just HAD to have a stimulus to save the economy, which pretty much all Republicans were on-board for, but horrible terrible "anti-science" people like Jindal (and others) thought actually ought to go to programs that had a chance of directly STIMULATING the economy? And then most of it ended up getting paid out to government programs and local governments so that they could continue with the status quo instead of tightening their belts, as if the freaking STATUS QUO was going to stimulate the freaking economy.But the take-away is that Jindal doesn't think earthquakes and volcanoes are important?And we're sitting in class wondering if there will be geology jobs, or *any* jobs when we graduate. But we're hoping so, even if it is a gamble. If nothing else, it's a gamble that by the time we graduate someone will offer to forgive our student loans in exchange for voting him into office.
How odd.My last 3 comments doubting MadMan have all disappeared.
edutcher said...Triumph is thrilling.Yes, but "Triumph des Villains" is menacing.
Is there a profile setting somewhere where I can auto email myself my own comments made on other's blogs?
I delete my comments... before ice releases them.
Maybe Madison Man is really that Sergie guy from Google.
Professor, someone is deleting my comments.You know... we have a carrier going without fuel tonight... and what are you worried about?(Sadly, the carrier meme is not going anywhere either)
Lem, that's a brilliant insight.Those comments aren't being deleted; they're being sequestered.
Seven minutes til sequester Armageddon. You central time people have another hour+ to catch a plane before air traffic control shuts down.
Happy Birthday, Myrna!
Well, my Amish friend Ervin was out today to cut and skid some trees off the ranch. He brought two giant Percheron horses to do the heavy lifting. Always an amazing sight watching these horses pull monster logs on voice command.
You will regret going up against Madman.If you see an Italian sausage walking up your driveway... Run!
Seven minutes til sequester Armageddon. You central time people have another hour+ to catch a plane before air traffic control shuts down.Its seven minutes past sequester time here in the east coast... if you are still reading this it means I have survived... this is not a recording.
Lem, I just heard a bunch of laid off teachers walking by the house. Quite somber. Breaking news on the local station, all the east coast interstate highways have shut down. Not sure what to make of this ... I think we're done fer.
Is Donna Brazile idiot, liar, or both? I have a hard time believing that she's seeing nasty surprises in her insurance coverage just now. BCBS tripled my deductible the year after they passed Obamacare.
I have something akin to a good chunk of a decade's worth of comments, mine and others', due to the simple selecting, routinely, in a mostly, if not always, disciplined fashion, of a check-box.I hope that answers the question.
DB's shocked! shocked! tweet.
I have something akin to a good chunk of a decade's worth of comments, mine and others', due to the simple selecting, routinely, in a mostly, if not always, disciplined fashion, of a check-box.Ah! I didn't know that that worked for your own first comment. I thought it just alerted you to subsequent ones. I say that because I once tried it on TY's blog where everything runs shipshape.
I just heard a sequester ship landed on a farm near Grovers Mill, New Jersey... Governor Chris Christie was there to welcome them (whoever they are) and take them on a tour of the Sandy devastated, Seaside Heights.
Lem, just curious: What's your personal, considered opinion, over time and taking into account all factors, of Gov. Chris Christie, as a governor, as a politician local to you, as a person, as a potential national candidate [whatever: U.S. Senator, U.S. Representative, President & etc?]. What do you think?
chickelit: Well, it does when you remember to do it. ; ) Can't say I *always* have, though I have often enough. (Same goes for archiving and keeping stuff, especially over time, as devices have changed, due to dying or upgrading.) Still enough.
Christie is a RINO of political convenience... meaning if it would not be politically advantageous to be a RINO he would not be.But, compared to what we have now in the WH he looks great... As far as electability I would have to look again down the road.
@Big Mike: same here. For me, since last night, the blog shows down to the headline (only) of "Forms leaned together," and no further. IE9.
You know, now that you guys mention it... I'm only seeing up to what I believe is the Gatsby sentence from last night.Forms leaned together in the taxis as they waited, and voices sang, and there was laughter from unheard jokes, and lighted cigarettes outlined unintelligible gestures inside.Nothing beyond that... further back in time I mean. I cant even comment on the sentence tread.
A person walking in snow photographyGo in the bitter cold to find beautySnow, just wear snowSnow religious new flowers blooming beautySnow religious life some old pineQuiet river side forest snowThe vast earth and sky white colorScenic artist busy shootingThat as well baby show moremillion dollar makeovers
If your last night's Gatsby sentence didn't show up all the way, here's what it looks like. There's a bunch of Gatsby sentences over there mixed with other things if you care to click through. Not all the sentences, but several.But after they were in that taxi singing, laughing at insider jokes, and smoking pot in there and freaking each other out tracing the red joint embers in the dark, they went out for something hot to warm them all up, and the whole Gatsby crowd agreed it is the most delicious cream of poblano soup they've ever tasted.
Wisconsin looks ghastly/wonderful/romantic/depressing right now. We in SoFla are to hit the LOW 40s this weekend, so I can commiserate somewhat at the continued harsh weather.Stay safe, peeps!Cheers, Victoria
We here in NE OH OTOH will hit the low 20s, mum.My heart bleeds for your roses.
i can still see every thread here. At least I didn't do anything to piss off the White House.But the day's still young.
The sequester apparently takes place at midnight tonight (Friday).The Today Show opened with an "eclusive" interview with Bob Woodward. Matt Lauer introduced it by chastising Woodward for "going public". He said these comments happen all the time between gov't and reporters. Lauer says Sperling was right, and goes on to demonstrate as best he can that Woodward is a whiny bitch. Woodward's all "whatevs" in response.
Read this! And don't miss this part: When the inevitable recession occurs, they need to find someone or something to blame besides a Bush or the deep blue sea. Enter sequester. Dick Morris explains: “He knows the economy is tanking. He realizes that we are headed for a double-dip recession. He expects unemployment to soar. He understands that his almost $300 billion in tax increases this year will drive us into recession. So he needs an out. That’s where sequestration fits in: If it goes into effect, he can blame Republican budget cuts for the economic disaster that will probably unfold this year.” Bob just ruined it for them. Funny that the Woodward book citing newly confirmed Treasury Secretary (then Budget director) Jack Lew as the genius behind the sequestration idea, wasn’t attacked by the White House when it was released last year nor when Lew was initially nominated this year to replace Tim Geithner in the cabinet. BTW, what Dick Morris says there, was said on Hillaryis44.org blog first.
Obama's sequester cuts just kicked in. Is everyone Ok? Clock starts ticking on the next manufacturered Obama/Media crisis.oh and Sarah Palin understands. The left's collective assortment of liars and bad faithers? Never. Obey the king or die!...Palin said if Americans cannot “stomach modest cuts that would lower federal spending by a mere 0.3% per year out of a current federal budget of $3.6 trillion, then we might as well signal to the whole world that we have no serious intention of dealing with our debt problem.” “If we are going to wet our proverbial pants over 0.3% in annual spending cuts when we’re running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then we’re done,” Palin wrote on Tuesday. “Put a fork in us. We’re finished.”
I'm intrigued by the broken English deployed by some blog-comment spammers. They say stuff like:Correct is the stuff you say! I learned many things on this site that may make you gasp with apprehension! [link to spam site, probably containing viruses]This could be a whole new genre, maybe counteracting the Gatsby sentence thing, which doesn't appeal to me. I'd like to see a blog, maybe even a novel, written entirely in blog-comment-spammer style.
Just changed my avatar again. It was depressing looking at that wreck.Like the model Rhone Aero Engine this train is also at the "Craftsmanship Museum" in Carlsbad Cali.It is 1/4 or 1/5 scale and everything works just like the full size ones.
It's the last day of the Zurich Chess Challenge. The only decisive game of the event so far was Fabiano Caruana's victory with the black pieces over World Chess Champion Vishy Anand. World Champion's don't allow themselves to be defeated with black very often. They also don't often find themselves last in the standings of the tournaments they enter.
Naked Ed Gein Robot would sit forlornly on that bench, waiting for the next Gatsby sentence to wear as a hat.
Naked Ed Gein Robot has made many Gatsby hats.
@edutcher, if you're still checking in, I use the Microsoft IE8, both at home and at work.At any rate it's a moot point since today the "Older Posts" link is visible again.If I ever use Google Chrome it will be because someone is paying me tens of thousands of dollars a month to do so.
Imus's Bernie McGuirk suggested in a background comment that the Pope is going to have an upscale line of red shoes called Air Benedict.
@Big Mike: "Older Posts" is there, but still only takes you to the Gatsby post headline. No "Older Posts" on that page.
Mike, the nice thing about Chrome is it's a bit less hackable.
hey Ann:Scalia said "perpetuation of racial entitlement" was a thing, a thing that had been written about.Where? By whom?
