Movie, TV Legend James Garner Dies

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Actor James Garner, whose whimsical style in the 1950s TV Western “Maverick” led to a stellar career in TV and films such as “The Rockford Files” and his Oscar-nominated “Murphy’s Romance,” has died, police said. He was 86.

  He was found dead of natural causes at his home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles Saturday evening, Los Angeles police officer Alonzo Iniquez said early Sunday.

  Police responded to a call around 8 p.m. PDT and confirmed Garner’s identity from family members, Iniquez told The Associated Press.

  There was no immediate word on a more specific cause of death. Garner had suffered a stroke in May 2008, just weeks after his 80th birthday.”

Cleaning A Record With Wood Glue

 

 

 

 

Uploaded on Apr 30, 2011

” I wanted to try cleaning an LP with wood glue. It made for quite an improvement – and I’ve read that multiple cleanings continue to clean up the snaps crackles and pops.

  Edit: I know I used way too much glue in this vid. :) But it was my first try so I wanted to get it right. You can use considerably less glue and still get the same effect – but it cuts the dry time way down. Just be sure that you get the whole record covered! “

 

 

 

    As someone with hundreds of old LPs destined to never make it onto CD I am extremely interested in this record restoration technique .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blues Legend Johnny Winter Dies At Age 70 In Zurich

 

 

 

 

 

” Texas blues legend Johnny Winter, known for his collaborations with the likes of Jimi Hendrix and childhood hero Muddy Waters, has died at the age of 70.

  His representative, Carla Parisi, confirmed today that Winter died in a hotel room in Zurich, Switzerland, on Wednesday. There was no immediate word on the cause of death.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Winter was a leading light among the white blues guitar players, including Eric Clapton and the late Stevie Ray Vaughan, who followed in the footsteps of the earlier Chicago blues masters. 

Winter idolized Waters — and got a chance to produce some of the blues legend’s more popular albums.” 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Rolling Stone magazine named Winter one of the top 100 guitarists of all time and he was famed for his lightening-fast blues guitar riffs and striking long white hair.

  His representative’s statement said his wife, family and bandmates were all saddened by the loss of one of the world’s finest guitarists.”

 

 

 

    Johnny may have departed this earth but thanks to his music we are “still alive & well” … RIP Mr Winter your absence will be forever felt .

21 Conservative Writers To Read At The Beach

 

 

” Conservatives have for a generation spent too much time complaining about the liberal dominance of popular culture, and too little making their own.

  But — as I argue in National Review this month — there is a growing countercultural revolt against the ingrained (and often unconscious) liberalism of mainstream popular culture, a revolt that has so far escaped widespread notice, though you can find some of it on Liberty Island, a website I founded that is devoted to the best in conservative fiction.

  After reading my introduction to this literary revolt, the editors of BuzzFeed asked me to suggest a list of conservative novels that deserve a wider audience. What follows is not the usual exercise of pointing out a handful of successful conservative authors like Tom Clancy, Tom Wolfe, or Brad Thor. Nor is it in any way exhaustive, but a brief, unsystematic survey of an as-yet uncharted territory. As such, it represents the barest hint of what is actually out there.

  This an introduction to 21 writers you probably have never heard of — and won’t, if the powers that rule the lit-crit, fanfic, and commercial publishing worlds have anything to say about it.

  So consider this a news dispatch from way, way, way outside the Beltway. Out in the lush, teeming jungle beyond the walls of the literary-industrial complex. The conservative countercultural revolt is on its way. Indeed it is already here. I didn’t say you had to like it. But give it a try — you just might! And if you have more ideas, add them in the comments section below.”

” The Holy Land is a delightfully un-PC science fictional allegory reflecting satirically on the Middle East conflict, set in the Pacific Northwest. A perfect gift for the BDS supporter in your family.”

2. John J. Miller

John J. Miller
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

” The First Assassin is a fast-paced and impeccably researched debut thriller set in Washington, D.C., by National Review contributor John J. Miller. In 1861, as the nation teeters on the brink of civil war, Col. Charles P. Rook duels with a cunning assassin out to kill the new president before he can save the nation.”

” Spare him your pained expressions of empathy and politically correct euphemisms: Dwarf attorney Will Tripp, Pissed Off Attorney at Law, will use them only to defeat you in court — and laugh all the way to the bank. Picture Peter Dinklage in a three-piece suit.”

” And All the Saints, the fictionalized “autobiography” of Tammany boss Owney Madden, evokes a time (the Roaring ’20s) when the soul of modern America was forged: a time when ethnic slurs and sexist comments flew like bullets, judges were for sale, and you voted the way the Democrats told you — or else.”

” In Good Intentions, Winston Jones, who works for the Department of Fairness, is chosen to be the next president because he is America’s most representative person. An entertaining entry in the emerging genre of nanny-state dystopia.”

” Conservative Insurgency is an alt-historical account of a successful struggle against progressive dominance, told in the form of oral history from the perspective of the year 2041.”

 

8. Kia Heavey

Unfiltered Creative

” Written for the YA market but appealing for all ages, Underlake is the story of a pampered cell phone–addicted urban teenager forced to spend the summer in a small town where she ultimately comes to question her assumptions and prejudices. Also check out Night Machines, a spooky psychological thriller about the danger of indulging in fantasies that threaten the things we value most.”

9. Andrew Klavan

Thomas Nelson

” Andrew Klavan’s Empire of Lies attacks liberal media culture and The Identity Man owes an acknowledged debt to Shelby Steele. His four-book YA series The Homelanders is like 24 set in a high school. Another YA book, If We Survive, is set in a Central American country during a Sandinista- (or Chavista-) style revolution. Check out his latest, Mindwar, set to publish this week.

” The Weed Agency by National Review’s Jim Geraghty deftly skewers the out-of-control world of the federal government “in which federal budgets balloon every year, where a career can be built upon the skill of rationalizing astronomical expenses, and where the word ‘accountability’ sends roars of laughter through D.C. office buildings.”

 

“11. Myrna Sokoloff

Myrna Sokoloff

” Sokoloff is a post-9/11 conservative whose writing career spans politics, finance, and film. Hand of Fatima, a prescient political thriller about a military cover-up, receives uniformly positive reviews on Amazon.”

12. Karina Fabian

Swimming Kangaroo Books

Damnation Books

” Karina Fabian is the creator of Vern the Dragon Detective, whose mordant wit laces her novels with sharp, politically incorrect social commentary. Check out Magic, Mensa and Mayhem, and Live and Let Fly. You also won’t want to miss her laugh-out-loud zombie novels, Neeta Lyffe, Zombie Exterminator, and I Left My Brains in San Francisco.’

Larry Correia

 
Baen Books

” Larry Correia, who lists his occupations as “gun dealer, firearms instructor, accountant and writer,” is the author of the popular Monster Hunter books. Monster Hunter Nemesis, his latest installment, is out this month. Correia has recently been the target of an Emanuel Goldstein-style hate campaign by intolerant leftists in the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America. Conservatives (and those liberals still concerned about protecting speech they disagree with) should buy his books to show their support.”

14. Kate Paulk

Naked Reader Press

Naked Reader Press

” Kate Paulk’s Knights in Tarnished Armor is a tale of manly knights and lovely ladies struggling (and sometimes failing) to remain true to their vows of chastity. Also check out her entertaining VampireCon series from Naked Reader Press: “There are vampires in the lobby, succubi in the beds, and bodies in the bathroom. It’s ConSensual, where the editors are demons, the writers are crazy and the vampires and werewolves might be the most stable people in the room.” Sounds like a normal day in publishing to me.”

” Ric Locke’s self-published space opera Temporary Duty is a funny and inventive first effort from a talented author who died unexpectedly in 2012.”

16. John Ringo

” The work of the prolific John Ringo is best described in his own words: “I’m a professional author of… Well, I used to say ‘science fiction.’ Then came There Will Be Dragons, which is sci-fi with a distinct fantasy twist. Then came Ghost which is techno-thriller crossed with porn. Then came Princess of Wands, a Christian soccer mom battling demons through the power of God. Who knows what’s next?” Indeed!”

17. Tom Kratman

Baen Books

” In books like CaliphateCome and Take ThemCarnifex, and A Desert Called Peace, retired Army Col. Tom Kratman pulls no punches in his literary war against militant Islam and other foes of American freedom, undeterred by niceties like international law.”

” Literary den mother Sarah Hoyt is a force of nature — writer, critic, blogger, cat fancier, wife and mother, and relentless promoter of other people’s work. A prolific author who has published 23 novels in multiple genres under a variety of pseudonyms, Sarah definitely deserves a bigger audience.”

21. Roger L. Simon & Sheryl Longin

Roger L. Simon & Sheryl Longin
Criterion Books

” And let me not forget The Party Line, an original play by novelist, screenwriter, and Pajamas Media founder Roger L. Simon and his wife Sheryl Longin. Well worth a read since it is unlikely to be staged on Broadway any time soon.”

” That ought to hold you until Labor Day. And remember, with e-books, there’s no need for a brown paper wrapper to hide what you’re reading. Feel free to suggest your own favorites in the comments thread!”

 

 

Film Critics Hate ‘America’

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Dinesh D’Souza shocked the movie world in 2012 with his anti-President Barack Obama documentary “2016,” which became the second highest-grossing documentary in U.S. movie history. On July 2, he unveiled his new documentary called “America: Imagine the World Without Her.” It has already grossed $5 million in its first week. One fictional competitor, the abortion-promoting comedy “Obvious Child,” barely grossed $2 million in its first month.

  But there’s a more dramatic contrast. Film critics are supposed to judge art, but their liberal politics are smeared all over their reviews. Metacritic.com collects and analyzes movie reviews. “Obvious Child” drew a high Metacritic.com score of 75 (out of 100). For D’Souza’s “America,” it was a ridiculously low score of 14.” “

 

 

   Brent Bozell tells the tale , but is anyone surprised that the film “critics” pan anything at all that shows America in a positive light while gushing over all things anti-American ? They are as predictable as the sunrise .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Year’s Best Drone Photography, From Eagles To Fireworks

 

 

Bali Barat National Park, Indonesia

http://www.dronestagr.am/bali-barat-national-park-indonesia/

 

 

 

” While small “drones” have raised controversy in the US, they’ve made a lasting contribution to the world of photography. A light camera and a quadcopter can capture beautiful aerial shots that might once have been difficult or impossible for most photographers. Last year, Dronestagram launched as a place for both amateurs and professionals to upload their work.”

 

 

 

 

Sofia, Bulgaria

http://www.dronestagr.am/sofia-bulgaria/

 

 

 

” This year, it opened a contest to find the very best ones. The winners, picked with the help of users and National Geographic, represent the spectrum of drone photography, from high-flying nature shots to athletic spectacles to people who are just wondering what’s up there looking at them. “Went back to my home town in the Philippines. I was flying in the park one Sunday morning when suddenly people had become really interested,” writes Jericsaniel, who captured the second-place photograph above. “Looking at this picture, I realized how happy my drone makes these people.” And the winning photographer, who deserves every bit of that accolade, has actually managed to make a drone fly with the eagles.”

” Finnish artist Tuomas Markunpoika makes beautiful vases, but what those vases are made out of makes them even more impressive. Yes, Markunpoika uses wood, but not just any kind. To make his vases, he uses the lumber of talking trees that gained magical powers from being struck by lightening multiple times on the eve of summer solstice–I mean pencils. He uses pencils to make his vases. Less dramatic, but still pretty cool!”

This Top Turns See-Through If You Leave Personal Data Exposed

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A Brooklyn-based designer has created a 3D-printed sculptural boob tube to spark social commentary on the state of privacy in a data-driven world — by making the top gradually more sheer.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

” X.pose’s striking black webbed rubber structure was engineered using a Stratasys printer, moulded to the body to ensure comfort and very much inspired by creator Xuedi Chen’s previous work, Invasive Growth (moss-grown jewellery based on the parasitic cordyceps fungus). But underneath, its layers tell another story about our lack of control and veritable vulnerability when it comes to who uses our data, what for and how much they take.”

 

 

The artist describes her creation thusly …

 

 

” x.pose is a wearable data-driven sculpture that exposes a person’s skin as a real-time reflection of the data that the wearer is producing. In the physical realm we can deliberately control which portions our bodies are exposed to the world by covering it with clothing. In the digital realm, we have much less control of what personal aspects we share with the services that connect us. In the digital realm we are naked and vulnerable. “

The Star Spangled Banner Lyrics

 

” Oh, say, can you see? By the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming;
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming.
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air.
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there:
Oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave?
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

  On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In fully glory reflected now shines in the stream:
‘Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh, long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

  And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution!
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

  Oh, thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust”:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.”

Story behind this video:
After a dog graduates my off leash training program, I’ll offer a “doggy outing service”. I pick up the dogs (usually between 8-12 dogs), take them to dog beaches or other dog friendly places, let them play together, while continuing to practice the training they’ve learned. I’ll rinse off any sand, trim their nails (if needed), then take them home. 2 1/2 year old Didga, aka ‘Worlds Best Skateboarding Cat’, who I adopted from the shelter at 13 weeks old has been joining us on the outings her whole life. Especially being a part of the group photos or videos I make. A GoPro camera was used for all the shots for this “Happy” video.

When I’m not on the group outings, Didga still joins me everywhere and loves riding in the car, at times she is very “dog like” sticking her head out the window as we drive down the road, riding on my stand-up paddle board or enjoying a little swim. Most cats don’t like being in water, BUT when she was young she didn’t react too negatively to water, so I took on a HUGE challenge of ‘desensitising’ her even more to the water. FYI – It was several months of patience and dedication to achieve what you see in the video. I’m a professional animal trainer so PLEASE don’t try getting your cat to swim at home.

Although I don’t make any money directly from this video because I used the “Happy” song, I couldn’t think of any other song that goes so perfectly with the – HAPPY DOGS!” 

Thanks for the Likes, comments (I read them), shares and SUBSCRIBING. Check out my other videos, (6+ million views) I’m just getting started, so more videos on the way.

Thanks, Robert And Didga

LYRICS:

Well they’ll be there in an instant
with the stars and stripes unfurled
glady going to the most dangerous
places in the world

But today it seems our fighting folks
are in danger once again
You may have seen the headlines in the news
or watching CNN

When we heard the wait times on our list
were so long that patients died
We said “This is government-run healthcare”
“So we’re gonna do what’s right”

We’re gonna grab a piece of paper
and we’ll make a second list
We’ll just say that wait times aren’t that long
and that no deadlines were missed
and when people die we’ll cross them off
and pretend they don’t exist
cuz there ain’t no doubt we can’t be fired
God bless the government

It ain’t just about the soldiers
you see we also sacrifice
There are days you’ll find us working
until the crack of 4:45

But for all the soldiers out there
who sick and need some help
What can they do to get the government
to care about their health?

They could grab a piece of paper
and write down something like this
and abandon your whole unit
then they’ll care when you get sick
and if people die when they look for you
we’ll pretend they don’t exist
cuz there ain’t no doubt we can’t be fired
God bless the government.”
