Test #2 Completed

I completed another test the other day. Data has been compiled and is being compared.

My suspicions have been confirmed, but one more test will be conducted solely for shits and giggles.

As if there was any doubt in the first place.

Again, no surprise. Predictable, per usual.

It is to laugh.

Last Week Tonight: Italian Election

In this installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver points out the fact that America isn’t the only country dealing with conspiracy theories and neo-fascism when it comes to politics and elections. That shithole country, Italy, is the just latest one to do so.

Saturday Songs for “the Quiet Beatle” (Re-blogged)

R.I.P., George. You are missed by many.

George Harrison: 25 February 1943 โ€“ 29 November 2001

I wanted to play some Saturday songs in honour of George Harrison, known as โ€œthe Quiet Beatleโ€ of โ€œFab Fourโ€ fame. Today marks what would have been his 74th birthday, were it not for his untimely death in 2001 at the age of 58 due to complications from throat and lung cancer. He also survived an attempt on his life in 1999, when a madman broke into his house and proceeded to stab him multiple times. From Wikipedia:

โ€œOn 30 December 1999, Harrison and his wife were attacked at their home, Friar Park. Michael Abram, a 36-year-old fan, broke in and attacked Harrison with a kitchen knife, puncturing a lung and causing head injuries before Olivia Harrison incapacitated the assailant by striking him repeatedly with a fireplace poker and a lamp.[166][168] Following the attack, Harrison was hospitalised withโ€ฆ

5 Songs on Sunday

There have been snow flurries off and on over the weekend, but not enough to stick around much. Warmer here on the coast than it is inland. Seattle has gotten a nice blanket of the stuff while we stay wet with the rain.

Since I didn’t do an official “5 on Friday” post I figured I’d play these five songs which I heard over the past couple of days. Musical themes are fun.

Saturday Sensibility

No preface needed. Watch, listen, and learn, if you have the capacity and capability to do so.

Inevitable

That’s my word of the day. Some things are inevitable, even if they occur slowly. The wheels of justice turn at glacial movement at times. A bit of forward progress followed by regression. Movement which leaves indelible marks.

Criminal behavior, even that done covertly, can be discovered and rooted out. Those scumbags in California, for example, were finally imprisoned for the disgusting things they did to their own children. Each is being held on $12 million bail. I’m not surprised that they pled “not guilty.” Delusional people have the uncanny ability to justify their mindless, hateful, despicable actions.

If you know of a crime and do nothing about it, then you can be held responsible. This goes for cybercrimes as well.

I can’t wait to see the house of cards fall. I wonder who will go down with it, and how many others will collapse in turn.

It is inevitable.

Some Funny Friday Memes! (Re-blogged)

Happy Friday, everyone! Enjoy this reblogged post of mine from November of last year.

Thursday Mashup

Since there was no new episode of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee aired last night, I figured I’d mash up this blog post with a few comedic clips from my other late-night helper elves.

Some of the clips are from 2016. You will see why.

Midweek Music: Nina Simone

Today marks the birth anniversary of the late, great, talented and beautiful Nina Simone. She was born on this day in 1933 and passed away on 21 April 2003. She would have celebrated her 85th birthday today.

Also called “the High Priestess of Soul,” she was a singer, songwriter, pianist, arranger, and a prominent figure in the Civil Rights Movement. Nina’s broad range of musical styles and influences included classical, jazz, blues, folk, R&B, gospel, and pop.

Her words from her autobiography, I Put a Spell on You, continue to inspire me. She wasn’t an artist who could be easily classified or pigeonholed, either.

Enjoy the musical selection.

Tuesday Tidbits: Cooking & Comedy

Author’s Note: This post was originally published in March of last year. I updated it slightly.

It’s a nice, relaxing Tuesday. Snow is falling outdoors while the delicious aroma of home-made beef stew wafts through the house. Cooking is such an enjoyable thing to do, especially with fresh ingredients! I figured that I’d show a few of the vegetables which I like to use in stews, much like my previous post about the things I toss in with my chicken soup.

Onions, shallots, and garlic make up the base of most dishes. I don’t think that any dinner is complete unless it has at least one of those flavourful bulbs included! Carrots may or may not be used, since the variety of root vegetables used more than makes up for their omission. These herbs and vegetables round out the meal:

Thyme

Rosemary

Oregano

Parsnip

Turnip

Rutabaga

Red potatoes

I love using fresh herbs of many different types…the picture below shows a few of my go-tos.

Since I’m amusing myself with some choice comedy bits, I thought that I’d share them with you. A good laugh does a body good, and these clips had me in a fit of giggles!

Shining the Blacklight on American Democracy

Drumpf’s Agenda: Today, America…Tomorrow, the World!

Conan O’Brien talks about the United Airlines dress code

Conan O’Brien hits Comic-Con(R) Mad Max-Style (2015)

Finally, this post wouldn’t be complete without a few short clips about bots and the role they play in various online scams. Behind every bot, troll, sock-puppet and cat-phishing attempt / attack is someone looking to give you the old “Rick-Roll.”
