Earle Hagen’s Harlem Nocturne by the Ray Anthony Orchestra


Here are some white musicians being less nerdy than Bibbing’s “Happy Face” goobers.

The best version of this I ever heard had an alto saxophone playing the lead, but it’s not on YouTube.

Texas Supreme Court: Return Sect Children to Parents


“AUSTIN — In a crushing blow to the state’s massive seizure of children from a polygamist sect’s ranch, the Texas Supreme Court ruled Thursday that child welfare officials overstepped their authority and the children should go back to their parents.

The high court affirmed a decision by an appellate court last week, saying Child Protective Services failed to show an immediate danger to the more than 400 children swept up from the Yearning For Zion Ranch nearly two months ago.

“On the record before us, removal of the children was not warranted,” the justices said in their ruling issued in Austin.

The high court let stand the appellate court’s order that Texas District Judge Barbara Walther return the children from foster care to their parents. It’s not clear how soon that may happen, but the appellate court ordered her to do it within a reasonable time period.”

The more I learn about this particular polygamous Mormon sect, the more difficult I find it to have any sympathy for them, but this was just like Janet Reno’s Waco debacle without the burned, dead women and children (Hope Janet enjoys her stay in Hell).

It’s frightening that our government has become so tyrannical that it will seize hundreds of children based on an anonymous phone call that turned out to be a lie, no corroborating proof required. This means anybody can ruin anyone’s life simply by picking up a phone, dialing 911, and lying to the authorities. Put simply, it’s horseshit: The bar must be set very high for authorities to get involved with anything. Yeah, that means bad people will get away with things from time to time, but it protects the innocent, which is all that really matters in the end, because innocent people being brutalized by shysters and pigs is a bigger tragedy than the occasional bad guy getting away with something: Bad guys tend to stay bad and get themselves caught sooner or later anyway.

So, though I have decided this sect is a deranged cult, I’m happy with this decision. Perhaps my Home State will think twice before going off half-cocked next time.

On The Revisionist History Channel Tonight…


Ladies and Gentlemen,

Tonight I have the esteemed honour of being able to watch what will surely be the TV highlight of the year. The History Channel presents:

The True Story of Che Guevara

Life of a Rebel: A righteous Robin Hood to some, a war-mongering menace to others, his quest to expand revolution across the globe would have Armies vying to crush him, and thrust him into a life cloaked in danger, mystery and intrigue.

What’s the bet that there’s very little “true” about this documentary?

I should mention that this is also the channel which displays shows like “Loose Change”.

UPDATE: “Ernesto became a revolutionary because he was a terrible dancer.” Based on that, I’m destined to become a revolutionary too! Or Guevara can’t take a little bit of criticism… I know what I’m thinking.

UPDATE II: “Che always rushed to the front lines in battles, to protect his ideals.” Unlike his Left friends, who merrily let good men die so they can then go on to criticise the Fallen.

Three Dog Night – Eli’s Coming


A bit of history…Three Dog Night (Aussies, you may know this)….

An official commentary included in the CD set Celebrate: The Three Dog Night Story, 1965-1975 states that vocalist Danny Hutton’s then-girlfriend June Fairchild thought of the name when she read a magazine article about indigenous Australians, in which it was explained that on cold nights they would customarily sleep in a hole in the ground while embracing a dingo, a native species of wild dog. On colder nights they would sleep with two dogs, and if a night was especially cold, it was a “Three Dog Night”

Wikipedia

BTW…Speaking of “coke” (like cocaine)…the lead singer with the long hair and mustache..snorted all of his money. Don’t know if he’s still penniless.

A little diddy to crank the day…followed by one other…The (fuck) THREE Dog Night.


All About Me…By Victor Davis Hanson.


Here is how our baby-boom generation solves problems:

Recently, George Bush went to Saudi Arabia to ask the ruling House of Saud to pump more oil. That request had about as much chance of success as the Democratic-led congressional effort to “sue” the Saudis in American courts for their selfish “price-gouging.”

The current debate about energy in the United States has devolved into doing the same old thing — consume, don’t produce and complain — while somehow expecting different results. Congress talks endlessly about the bright future of wind, solar and new fuels, while it stops us from getting through the messy present by utilizing abundant coal, shale and tar sands; nuclear power; and oil still untapped in Alaska and off our coasts.

For the past five years, we fretted over a “housing boom” that had priced an entire generation out of the market. In response, government and lending agencies got “creative” by relaxing standards to allow shaky “first-time” buyers into the red-hot market of high-priced homes. Home-improvement TV shows proliferated on how to “flip” houses and buy “no-down-payment” properties.

When the bubble inevitably burst, cries of outrage followed about how “they” (never “we”) caused a “depression” in housing. Our leaders shrieked about greedy lenders and incompetent regulators who foreclosed on us — never that the American people themselves caused much of the speculation problem, or that housing prices are finally becoming affordable again for new couples.

Over 70 percent of the American people, and a majority of Democratic senators, wanted to remove Saddam Hussein — overwhelming support for the administration’s war that rose even higher as a brilliant campaign finished off the Baathists in three weeks.

But when a messy insurgency erupted, suddenly we heard that our victory was ruined by “their stupid occupation.”

— The current Social Security system is unsustainable. But the baby boomers who gave us Botox aren’t about to up the retirement age and freeze their own cost-of-living hikes to allow the cash-strapped next generation a little help in paying for our out-of-control benefits.

There is a pattern in all these dilemmas. And it is not conservative-versus-liberal politics, but generational chaos. Those who came of age in the 1960s now hold the reins of power and influence — and we are starting to see why their values have worried almost everyone for nearly a half-century.

History has seen something like them before in the “blame them” years of Demosthenes’ Athens, the self-indulgence of Julio-Claudian Rome, the “after me, the deluge” generation of late 18th-century France, the Gilded Age, and the Roaring Twenties.

What are the baby boomers’ collective traits? Like all perpetual adolescents who suffer arrested development, we always want things both ways: Don’t drill or explore for more energy, but nevertheless demand ever more fuel from other suppliers.

There are never bad and worse choices, but only a Never Never Land of good and even-better alternatives. Housing not only has to stay affordable for buyers, but also must appreciate in value to give instant equity to those who have just become owners.

When things don’t go well, we always blame someone else. Why drill off Santa Barbara or Alaska when we can sue those terrible Saudis for not putting more oil platforms in their Persian Gulf?

And why accept that the conduct of all wars is flawed and victory goes usually to those who persevere in making the needed adjustments when we can just keep pointing fingers at the official who disbanded the Iraqi army or sent too few troops after the invasion?

The sense of self-importance is never far away. We “earned” our generous unsustainable Social Security benefits, so why should we have to suffer by cutting them?

Sociologists have correctly diagnosed the perfect storm that created the “me” generation — sudden postwar affluence, sacrificing parents who did not wish us to suffer as they had in the Great Depression and World War II, and the rise of therapeutic education that encouraged self-indulgence.

Perhaps the greatest trademark of the 1960s cohort was self-congratulation. Baby boomers alone claimed to have brought about changes in civil rights, women’s liberation and environmental awareness — as if these were not prior concerns of earlier generations.

We apparently created all of our wealth rather than having inherited our roads, schools and bountiful infrastructure from someone else. And in our self-absorption, no one accepted that our notorious appetites created more problems than our supposed “caring” solved.

Our present problems were not really caused by an unpopular president, a spendthrift Congress, the neocon bogeymen, the greedy Saudis, shifty bankers or corporate oilmen in black hats and handlebar moustaches — much less the anonymous “they.”

The fault of this age, dear baby boomers, is not in our stars, but in ourselves.

BOMB COMMUNITY SLAMS BBC


BOMBERS OUTRAGED AT MUSLIM SLUR

May 30, 2008

Exeter, Eurabia

Prospective suicide bombers in Exeter, Eurabia, today expressed outrage at being labeled Muslims.

This follows a report by the BBC yesterday that inferred a link between radical Islam and terrorism.

Spokesperson for the Pan-Islamic Autonomous Continuation Organisation, Percy ‘Mohummed’ Winchester, slammed the BBC.

‘That we have been labeled Muslims when all we are demanding is a caliphate and the right to blow ourselves, and others, up is plain racist.

‘We are not Muslims.

‘We are bombers and terrorists in training and I wish people would understand the difference.

‘We are the bomb community.’

Several prospective bombers have since filed complaints with the Devon Racial Equality Council.

When questioned how a charge of racism could be applied regarding a religious matter, Winchester noted that despite some success since the fall of the new millennium, radical Islam was ‘still losing the the race’.

Pooh-pooh to AGW


One of the strangest things I’ve learned in the past year about the US Historical Climatological Network is the propensity for placement of weather stations at sewage treatment plants… but they themselves are their own mini islands of waste heat and humidity, especially in winter and overnight. Yet, a significant portion of the US climate data comes from these locations.

With thanks to Anthony Watts.

Earle Hagen, The Greatest Composer You Never Heard Of, Has Died


“LOS ANGELES, California (AP) — Earle H. Hagen, who co-wrote the jazz classic “Harlem Nocturne” and composed memorable themes for “The Andy Griffith Show,” “I Spy,” “The Mod Squad” and other TV shows, died Monday. He was 88.”

Via CNN

Earle’s list of credits just floors me: Make Room for Daddy, The Andy Griffith Show, Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer, I Spy, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Gomer Pyle – USMC, That Girl, The Mod Squad, Eight is Enough… the list goes on. Plus, he played with Benny Goodman, and Tommy Dorsey, as well as wrote Harlem Nocturne, one of the most instantly recognizable jazz standards of all time.

Here is Earle whistling the theme song he wrote for The Andy Griffith Show, one of my favorite shows when I was a little kid.

Of course, this has given me a great idea: I can’t sing, but I’ve whistled this tune for decades. All I have to do is learn the guitar part, and I could perform this. I put a lot of humorous stuff in my set, so this would be so me. LOL!

RIP and Godspeed, Earle.
