A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/27/17 9:42am Itzall Ablurr:

The problem at Kingsland is a crisis of (lack of) imagination, and action. Sonic devices could be installed to emit CONSTANT predatory calls which would frighten away any bird approaching the area. This has been done to great results in cities experiencing the "pigeon problem". It absolutely deters them from going anywhere NEAR the origin point of the disturbing sounds.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/27/17 10:13am Passaic River Blues:

@Trouble-n-Co.: that story is demoralizing. There are so many obstacles we create for birds on top of habitat loss and introducing environmental toxins. Every year I see dead warblers on sidewalks around town in the spring and fall. Last fall I tried to save a lady Northern Parula that had apparently struck an office building window on Raymond Blvd. but I failed. But, as Itzall suggested, this Kingsland methane problem may have a potential partial solution in auditory signals (hard to say if it would be effective for all species at all times, but seems like it would certainly mitigate to a great degree).

And don't even get me started on Trump's tax plan. Next time some NJ finance bro starts shouting about the virtues of Trump's tax plan, ask them what they think about the proposal to eliminate/reduce the state and local tax payment deductions, which will slam many NJ homeowners and serves no purpose other than to slightly offset the insanely huge cuts for the super-wealthy. Or ask them why when Reagan and Bush II applied these fallacious Laffer Curve principles it resulted in massive deficits and not magically increased revenue. They've tried this shit as long as I've been alive and it never fucking works.

As citizens we have more control over elected representatives than we do the CEOs of health insurance and other healthcare operations. Politicians are supposed to represent us and there is at least a system in place for allowing us to have some control over what they do, private-sector profiteers are not accountable to citizens, they answer to shareholders.

Maybe we should handle putting people in Congress the same way we do jury duty. And disqualify anyone who actually wants to server. People who are attracted to power generally should never have it.

Hi Troubled ones! Nice music today.
"The rich are just not rich enough" << basic idea in a song I'm writing.

as long as our election cycles are supported by donations to the candidate of your choice we will be represented by those who raise the most cash, weak to the vagaries of the donator. france has heavy controls on how $ is spent yet look what they now have on their plate

Clinton outspent Trump almost 2 to 1 and still couldn't pull it off. So the office doesn't always go to the highest bidder

Army of Shadows... that is something no one should miss. See it on the big screen, not at home on your computer..its a bit of history. Harsh reality, gorgeously written and shot.

Trouble, thank you ! I am packing to leave Atlanta. Finished teaching this semester at Georgia Tech. Flying back to Mexico City this afternoon. Your two suggestions Pasaquan pasaquan.columbusstate.edu and Atlanta Contemporary Art Center atlantacontemporary.org... have been highlights of my time in Atlanta. Thank you ! -Mark

Any fans of cool artistic women planning a trip to Rochester can visit the graves of Lee Morse and Louis Brooks. Cemeteries are across the street from each other. RIP to both.

In the 90s Brazilian Octopus album was the most sought after bootleg in Sao Paulo. I remember How excited I was when I finally got a copy. Finally somebody reissued it!

Fuck this Anthony Lane! Just fuck that shit, just totally sucker punch that guy. Okay he writes for the New Yorker, great: DON'T READ IT! he gives away the main plot line every single time, what a bitch-ass. That is NOT criticism. Sorry dude, you suck. Sure, go to the films as Trouble says , you needn't look further than her good word . Anthony lane sux. as a critic, he is a "SPOILER ALERT-a-Hole". Any questions?
