Leggi Keplero che ti fa bene   
In questi giorni stiamo seguendo tutti con il fiato sospeso le notizie nucleari provenienti dal Giappone. E' particolarmente difficile trovare fonti di informazione se non corrette almeno ragionevoli. I quotidiani online al solito si distinguono per un'approssimazione quasi criminale (in particolare Repubblica che tiene la linea "AAAAAAH MORIREMO TUTTI!!"). Fortunatamente oggi abbiamo internet e la possibilità di sapere molto di più che ai tempi di Chernobyl.

Purtroppo chi governa le centrali tende a non essere molto trasparente, e ci sono forti dubbi che conosciamo tutto quello che succede. Qualcosa però sappiamo. Amedeo Balbi ha riassunto in maniera ammirabilmente asettica alcune cose nel suo post "Un po' di cose che so sulle centrali nucleari", di cui sottoscrivo anche le virgole.

Se sai l'inglese hai più opzioni. Non è per niente male l'articolo apparso oggi su Ars Technica (che è capace di trattare in maniera imparziale cose persino più controverse, come i prodotti Apple).  Particolarmente sensata mi sembra la conclusione:

This latter set of issues mean that the surest way to build a safe nuclear plant is to ensure that nothing goes wrong in the first place. There are ways to reduce the risk by adding more safety and monitoring features while tailoring the design to some of the most extreme local events. But these will add to the cost of a nuclear plant, and won't ever be able to ensure that nothing goes wrong. So, deciding on if and how to pursue expanded nuclear power will require a careful risk analysis, something the public is generally ill-equipped for. (grassetto mio)

Io continuo ad essere contrario alla costruzione di centrali nucleari in Italia, sostanzialmente per motivi di costo e (naturalmente) di sfiducia. Niente mi toglie dalla testa che chi le vuole sa benissimo che non saranno mai effettivamente costruite e che si tratta di stipulare contratti, distribuire soldi e pagare penali a industrie bustarellanti.

          Estados Unidos encierra en prisión a las profesoras que abusan sexualmente de menores   
Domingo, 18 de Junio, 2017
ESTADOS UNIDOS

Detenida una profesora de matemáticas, Erin Elizabeth McAuliffe, por abusar de 3 menores de edad, alumnos del centro escolar, el cual procedió de inmediato a la expulsión de su centro como profesora.

Tiene 25 años, y fue el director del centro,Todd Pipkin,  donde imparta clases como docente en la localidad de Rocky Mount, en Carolina del Norte (EE.UU.), quien advirtió de los hechos delictivos de su profesora, que de haber sido protagonizados por un maestro varón, se hubieran calificado de pederasta.

La mujer fue detenida y encerrada en prisión a la espera de ser juzgada, y la fianza impuesta asciende a 20.000 euros. Sin duda en España las consecuencias hubieran sido más leves por ser mujer.

  • Contra McAuliffe se han presentado tres cargos de actividad sexual con estudiantes y otro cargo de libertades indecentes con un menor. Delitos considerados muy graves.
  • contactaba con algunos por Facebook, donde ella compartía sugerentes fotografías.

Ha pasado una noche en los calabozos, las acusaciones son amenazas e insultos a su expareja. Según la acusación Javier Roche se presentó en la casa de la chica y destrozó el piso donde reside la chica. Otra de las acusaciones es la difusión de contenido audiovisual pornográfico de su expareja en internet. En concreto son vídeos.

@nikki971 : c'est bien là l'erreur: personne ne se censure consciement en Chine.

J'étais le seul étranger dans un groupe d'amis suffisament proche pour se faire confiance pourtant. Mais dans un restau. Il y a juste des sujets tabous et c'est là que l'auto-censure se place. Tu enverras tes photos de bites, mais tu ne discuteras pas de la place du Djihad dans le Coran et des motivations des djihadistes, ni même de faire une simulation de préparations d'attentat (juste pour voir comment c'est facile ou difficile, hein, se mettre à la place du terroriste pour essayer de comprendre) dans tes conversations sur internet. Il faut le vivre une fois hors de chez soi pour ressentir l'effet de l'auto-censure. Un sujet qui serait accessible en France (par ex. la politique étrangère de la Chine) ne l'est plus pour des chinois hors d'un lieu privé et baigné d'une confiance mutuelle.

          Anxiety – Treatment of it the Holistic Way   
At some time in our lives, all of us suffer some degree of anxiety. Treatment of it can be a minor or major process. It depends on the severity. All too often, we resort to some anti-depressant and leave it at that. The problem with that approach is that it hides the symptoms, but does nothing to resolve the cause of the problem.

This is the issue with so many professional interventions that camouflage symptoms but ignore the cause. A good example is the spine. The spine is a powerhouse of nerves that control major areas of the body. The spine does more than just hold us together. It relays the brain's messages to make our legs move; it sends and receives messages from the heart and lungs. It relays the message that our toes are still there! It is our own personal internet that connects us into one functioning body.

It is our own personal internet that connects us into one functioning body.

What happens if there's a glitch in the web server? You can't access information, or maybe it's so slow you can't use it. What happens if you "feel" the toe is hurting, but really it's a spine "server" problem. You get the idea?

Our body is far more complex, and our "internal internet" needs the best to do its best.

Giving your spine the best - means taking care that it is in good health – before it breaks down and causes issues in other areas of the body. Ask your chiropractor, if the spine can't cause symptoms in other parts of the body.

So, would it help to hide the symptoms?

Would it be better to find the cause of the symptoms - and remove the cause?You can reduce anxiety - treatment of it may be as easy as a visit to your local chiropractor. Believe me, it's a lot cheaper than brain surgery.


          I Want My GOTV   

COLUMBUS, Ohio—With only nine days until this election is over (or so everyone hopes), we've reached the stage of the campaign when the political press evaluates each side's ground game. The media's track record on this is not encouraging. Almost exactly nine months ago, reporters were wandering around Iowa judging the merits of everyone's "organization, organization, organization." The verdict: Howard Dean and Dick Gephardt were the men to beat. We were dazzled by Gephardt's union support and by Dean's "Perfect Storm" of door-knocking, orange-hatted, out-of-state volunteers. They both got creamed.

In hindsight, Dean's Perfect Storm has been judged a debacle on two levels: It annoyed Iowans, who don't like outsiders, and it tied up Dean's staff with organizational headaches—where should we house the Stormers? How can we keep them busy?—when the staff's time would have been better spent figuring out how to get Iowans to the caucuses. But at the time, it got great press.

So, perhaps it's a bad omen for Kerry's ground game in Ohio when I discover that Christy Setzer, the woman who handled press for the Perfect Storm, has been assigned to deal with national reporters who parachute into Columbus to watch America Coming Together, the New New Thing of the general election, in action. That's not meant as a slap at Setzer—she's a terrific person who's good at her job (see the aforementioned glowing press)—but the parallels are irresistible. Like the Storm was for the caucuses, the George Soros-funded ACT is the Big Question Mark of the general election: How many of the new voters it registered in the past year are authentic? How many of them will show up to vote? Can this unconventional strategy win Kerry the presidency?

ACT's army of red-coated canvassers are Kerry's Afghan warlords: He's outsourced his base campaign, his voter-registration drives, and a healthy chunk of his get-out-the-vote operation to them. Much of the rest of the operation will be handled by the groups (including ACT) that make up America Votes, another 527 that coordinates the voter-contact and voter-turnout operations of a host of interest groups, from the AFL-CIO to Planned Parenthood, to ensure that everyone's on the same page. In a sense, America Votes does for the liberal ground game what Grover Norquist's weekly meeting does for conservative talking points.

When I ask Setzer to compare ACT to Dean's Storm, she says it differs in important ways. For one, the canvassers are paid workers and not volunteers, and the organization tries to hire locals instead of out-of-towners. More important, perhaps, the canvassers are supposed to identify voters and get them to the polls, not tell voters their personal stories of how far they've traveled and why they're committed to Howard Dean (or John Kerry). But the real key is that they don't work for just one weekend.

The secret to turnout is frequent face-to-face contact with voters. That's a lesson Steve Rosenthal, the national head of America Coming Together, learned during his years as the political director of the AFL-CIO. Many people attribute Al Gore's victory in the popular vote in 2000—and his wins in every close state except Florida—to Rosenthal's turnout operation for the unions in 2000. Donna Brazile has called Rosenthal "the last great hope of the Democratic Party" and has compared him to Michael Whouley and Karl Rove. ACT is a national version of what Rosenthal did for Philadelphia Mayor John Street in 2003. In that race, 38,000, or 44 percent, of the 86,000 new voters Rosenthal registered came to the polls, he told National Journal earlier this year, compared to 28 or 29 percent of what the magazine called "voters from the same neighborhoods and similar socio-economic backgrounds who had registered on their own."

In Ohio, ACT sends out between 200 and 250 paid canvassers each day. They get paid between $8 and $10 an hour. Setzer reels off impressive numbers: We've knocked on 3.7 million doors in Ohio, had more than 1 million conversations. On Election Day, ACT will send out 12,000 volunteers, each paid a stipend of $75 for travel and expenses, to make sure voters get to the polls. ACT and the partner organizations that make up America Votes have registered about 300,000 new voters in Ohio, and they'll consider it a success to turn out just half of them. Those voters alone, though, wouldn't swing the election. Four years ago, Bush's margin of victory was nearly 180,000 votes. In all, Ohio has between 700,000 and 800,000 new voters for this election, though Setzer points out that some of that could just be churn from voters who moved.

My trip to watch two ACT canvassers in action wasn't very impressive, but that's because it was a Potemkin canvass, organized for the benefit of an MSNBC reporter and his camera. Malik Hubbard, 26, and Julian Johannesen, 32, walked up and down a few blocks in a largely African-American neighborhood in Columbus on a Saturday afternoon. As ACT's field directors for Franklin County, which includes Columbus, Hubbard and Johannesen don't usually canvass themselves. Each man carried a Palm Tungsten T2, which contained the addresses of the voters they were supposed to contact. It's Saturday afternoon on the day of the Ohio State homecoming game, so it's not optimal door-knocking time, but they do their best to put on a good show. When a voter answers the door, the canvasser gives him or her a flyer that has the address of the local polling place stamped on it. He explains that the polls will be open from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m., advises the voter to bring some form of identification to the polls in case their registration is challenged, and asks if there are any questions. On two separate occasions, a voter worries about a false rumor that the neighborhood's voting machines have been replaced with punch-card ballots. After talking to each voter, Hubbard and Johannesen input the data into their Tungsten T2s.

Over the next nine days, canvassers will follow up with voters, continuing the personal contacts. For what it's worth, the Bush-Cheney campaign in the state is following a similar strategy, though it doesn't partly rely on an outside organization to carry it out. "I'm not saying we're gonna outperform the other side, because they have the potential to be spectacular," says Dave Beckwith, a Bush-Cheney spokesman in Ohio. "I'd just rather be where we are, with a real solid model." The model is the Republican "72 Hour Program," Karl Rove's get-out-the-vote operation from 2002, which helped the Republicans gain House and Senate seats in the midterm elections. Like ACT, the 72 Hour Program relies on frequent face-to-face contact with voters, what Bush's Ohio campaign manager Bob Paduchik calls "the volunteer-to-voter interface."

"By and large, it is an effort to move closer to the Democrat knock-and-drag vote drive," Beckwith says. Republicans have traditionally relied on things like direct mail to get out the vote, but this time, "We are going to the personal contact system." The Bush-Cheney campaign has printed up small pamphlets that contain a list of each committed Bush voter in a neighborhood, along with voters' phone numbers and a map of the area. On Election Day, a volunteer takes the book and checks off each voter after they go to the polls.

Beckwith admits that the Democrats have registered more new voters than the Republicans, but he says that their work was done by "mercenaries"—and they have "people signed up by crack addicts"—while his side employs volunteers, or "liberty-loving free men." Beckwith then drifts into a reverie about the Battle of San Jacinto and explains how Sam Houston knew that "conscripts" and the forces of "despotism" couldn't defeat free men. The enemy was saying, "Me no Alamo," Beckwith says with a laugh. (At another moment in the interview, Beckwith observes of the Kerry-Edwards campaign offices, "I think they're on Gay Street, which is interesting, because we're on Rich Street.")

At the Bush-Cheney headquarters, I mention to Paduchik, Bush's Ohio campaign manager, how the media overestimated the effectiveness of Dean's Perfect Storm. Paduchik says the evidence of Bush's organization in Ohio is the size of his crowds, because the campaign distributes its tickets through its volunteers. When you see 22,000 people in Troy, Ohio, or 50,000 people in Westchester, Ohio, you know you're looking at "a real organization," he says. "It's not because we had tickets you could download from the Internet. It's not because we had put them on car windows, or had people pick them up at a 7-Eleven, like the other side does."

On the way out, I'm reminded that all this work on both sides isn't necessarily a sign of confidence. As we walk to the door, Beckwith points to an empty portion of the Bush-Cheney offices. That's where the staff for Sen. George Voinovich works, he says. "These cocksuckers are up 30 points and they're never in here."


          Long Live McCurry!   

PHILADELPHIA—"Long live McCurry," wrote the Boston Globe's Glen Johnson in a Tuesday pool report, distributed to the members of the traveling press corps who hunt the elusive Senatorus massachusetts. The occasion for this joyous outburst: John Kerry responded to a question, and the press credits Mike McCurry, the former Clinton press secretary and now the "adult on the plane" for the Kerry campaign, with making the Democratic nominee more accessible. "Will transcribe, but nothing earth-shaking," Johnson wrote. "At least he stopped to answer, though. Long live McCurry …"

McCurry denies that he's responsible for the shift and credits communications director Stephanie Cutter for pushing for more accessibility long before he arrived last week. Either way, the reporters don't care. We were just happy Thursday that Kerry was answering questions again. He did it twice this time, very quickly on the tarmac here with unified middleweight champion Bernard Hopkins and earlier in a more formal environment in Columbus, Ohio. Of Hopkins, Kerry said, "He was giving me tips. He told me exactly how to do it over the next days." Hopkins said, "Exactly, the left hands, the jabs, the whole nine yards." The Globe's Johnson asked, "So you're coming from the left, sir?" Kerry: "I'm not telling you where I'm coming from. That's the secret, right?" Hopkins: "That's right. You don't tell everyone, especially the opponent." For the record, Hopkins has successfully defended his title 19 times, which beats Bob Shrum's 0-7 mark.

In Columbus, Kerry took only three questions, but again, we're not complaining. ABC's Dan Harris asked: "You criticized, to the AP, the president for 'retreating,' I believe was your word, from Fallujah. Given the situation on the ground in Fallujah when there was an offensive there, when there was a rising civilian death toll, a rising criticism among Arab media for our actions there, what would you have done differently?"

Kerry responded in what was almost a reproachful tone, complaining about how "you people judge me" and how his policies "would have prevented Fallujah." Here's his response in full: "Let me tell you, I've said many times, I wouldn't have just done one thing differently in Iraq, I would have done almost everything differently. And when you people judge me, and the American people judge me on this, I want you to judge me on the full record. I stood in Fulton, Mo., and I gave the president advice about what he needed to do. He didn't take it. I stood at Georgetown University a year and a half ago, and I gave the president advice about what he needed to do. He didn't take it. I stood on the floor of the Senate and gave him advice about what he needed to do. He didn't take it. I've laid out a whole series of things I would have done that would have prevented Fallujah. Let me tell you, if the 4th Infantry Division and the diplomacy had been done with Turkey, you wouldn't have had a Fallujah. This president rushed to war, without a plan to win the peace. And ask the military leaders. Go ask the military leaders. General Shinseki told this country how many troops we'd need. The president retired him early for telling the truth. That's why you have Fallujah. That's why you have a mess in Iraq. And that's not the kind of leadership this nation deserves."

As for McCurry, I had dinner with him Thursday night. Here are some quick takeaways from our conversation:

—He's concerned that the message-masters at the Bush campaign, such as Nicolle Devenish and Mark McKinnon, have a better understanding of the Internet and nontraditional media than the Kerry campaign. The slow response to the Swift boat ads was a sign of that, a lack of awareness that voters can acquire information from places other than newspapers and the nightly news.

—John Glenn told Kerry Thursday not to worry about the polls that show Bush opening a big lead in Ohio, McCurry said. That always happens around this time, Glenn said, and the mistake people make is to write off the state because of it, as Gore did. McCurry said Glenn persuaded Clinton to remain in Ohio after a similar spike in the polls in 1992, and Clinton carried the state.

—Why are the polls showing an increase in undecided voters? One theory: Soft Republican supporters and soft Democratic supporters are highly volatile this campaign, and the conventions made them "more inchoate." The Republicans are mostly pro-choice moderates who are wondering whether Bush is really compassionate, and the Democrats are moderates who are wondering whether Kerry is really a New Democrat.

—The windsurfing ad that the Bush campaign is running against Kerry is an attempt to be this year's "Dukakis in the tank" spot. McCurry thinks the Kerry campaign neutralized it with their quickly assembled response ad, though it's not over yet.

—McCurry would like Kerry to talk more about abortion, about how he struggles with it because of his Catholic faith. He thinks Kerry needs to come up with a "safe, legal, and rare"-type formula that assures anti-abortion swing voters that he understands their moral concerns and isn't dismissive of them.

—McCurry has never been a big believer in the role of advertising or get-out-the-vote drives in presidential campaigns, though he's acquired a new respect for GOTV after 2000 and 2002. He thinks presidential races come down to whether the candidate can make the sale on the stump. You can't, after all, run TV ads that are completely different from what voters are seeing on the news.

Which leaves the obvious question: Can Kerry make the sale? That was where the race stood before the Democratic Convention in July, and that's where it remains two months later. Kerry hasn't shown he can do it yet. He's got 40 days.

Hi all
I’ve changed my fog ip address and I can’t rerun the installer to pick up the updated settings because I’m behind a proxy
Installing required packages, if this fails
make sure you have an active internet connection.

  • Adding needed repository…Failed!

Any way to get past this, all the packages have already been installed and should just work. I had this problem last time I looked at fog, my storage nodes wouldn’t work properly.


          Another networking puzzle   

After all the michegas about AT&T last week, I decided to order a second Internet connection. I was pretty happy with their high speed DSL, but if they're going to gang up on customers with the record industry, I want to be sure I have an exit planned out.

So I ordered a Comcast network interface. It should arrive in a few days.

The question is can I have both network interfaces running on the same LAN?

I was thinking if I plug the Comcast box into a G4 desktop that has two Ethernet jacks, while the other is plugged into the big switch I bought a few weeks ago (and it's working great, btw) that's connected into the DSL line, that somehow all my computers would be on both nets at the same time?

I figured some of the network gods tuned into this station may have some ideas.

Is there any way to make use of two net connections on one LAN? Or does it necessarily mean two separate local nets?

Comment here, please.

And sorry for destroying our culture, Andrew. smile

Since most companies that have a proxy server in their environment restrict direct internet access we have to configure linux (and fog) to communicate with the internet over the company authorized proxy server(s).

Most command line utilities will inspect the environment variables to check to see if they need to use the proxy protocol when attempting to access files and services on the internet.

These environment variables are http_proxy, https_proxy, and ftp_proxy (I’ve also seen these variables referenced in all upper case like HTTP_PROXY, HTTPS_PROXY and so on. To date I’ve only use the lower case env variables so I can’t say if case is important for all linux distros)

You could add these env variables to each command invocation, but typically system admins will add them to a common logon script so they are available to anyone who logs into the linux system. Most common is to add them to the bash shell logon script /etc/bashrc To make these variables persistent in the environment they must be defined with the export function as below.

In the case of the fog installer, we need to tell the fog installer to not use the proxy protocol when attempting to connect to the fog server directly. So we must also include this env variable.

export no_proxy="<fog_server_ip>"

During the fog installation the installer script makes wget calls back into the running fog server for specific actions. Without the no_proxy setting the installer script would make that request to the proxy server. Some proxy servers won’t proxy requests to internal networks. So this setting is required.

There are some command line commands that don’t inspect the env variables but require specific settings in their config files. These include FOG, svn (I assume git too), cpan, and pear. For these you will need to update the appropriate config file. For FOG (proper) you need to update the proxy server settings in the fog management console. For SVN you need to create a file in /etc/subversion called servers and then populate it with the required settings.

          Looking Backward   

MANKATO, Minn.—After watching President Bush speak for only a couple of hours on the 2004 stump, it's easy to see the main tenets of his re-election campaign: My opponent is un-American, or at least less American than me and you. My opponent, much like Al Gore, doesn't know who he is. My opponent is a tax-hiking, big-government liberal. Worse, he wants to ask other countries for permission for America to defend itself against its enemies. Last, and most important, my wife is better than his wife.

What you don't hear from President Bush's stump speech, or from his surrogates, is what he plans to do were he given another four years as president. The problem is particularly glaring on matters of foreign policy. There are glimmers of a domestic agenda in the president's two campaign events Wednesday: He wants to reform America's high schools, increase math and science education, and increase the use of the Internet in schools. He wants more ethanol subsidies. He wants to make health care more available and affordable. He wants less regulation. He likes community colleges. He wants workers to be able to acquire flex time and comp time in lieu of overtime pay.

Bush also gives his audiences a rehash of the greatest hits from his 2000 campaign mantras. He likes tort reform and dislikes "frivolous lawsuits." (A favorite line of Bush crowds: "You cannot be pro-patient and pro-doctor and pro-trial lawyer at the same time. You have to choose. My opponent made his choice, and he put him on the ticket.") He wants private Social Security accounts for younger workers. He likes marriage and the family, which always gets him a big cheer, because what it really means is he's against gay marriage. He's for a "culture of life," "judges who faithfully interpret the law instead of legislating from the bench," and a "culture of responsibility." Not to mention the responsibility society and the ownership society. He's still against the soft bigotry of low expectations. And of course, he wants everyone to love their neighbor just like you'd like to be loved yourself.

Bush doesn't talk much about the future. He talks about the past. The biggest portions of Bush's speech are spent mounting a vigorous defense of his presidency. When Bush's campaign foundered in New Hampshire four years ago, he retooled his strategy in response to John McCain and began billing himself as a "reformer with results." He's not using that slogan yet, but the rhetoric is similar. "It's not enough to advocate reform," he says. "You have to be able to get it done." The closing section of his speech ends with the mantra, "Results matter." On education, health care, the economy, farms, and security, Bush concludes by saying, "Results matter." Of his Medicare prescription drug benefit, Bush says, "Leaders in both political parties had promised prescription drug coverage for years. We got the job done."

Bush spends the longest amount of time defending his policies after Sept. 11. He takes credit for the creation of the Homeland Security Department (one of those things that Bush voted against before he voted for it), and he takes pride in the Patriot Act. Afghanistan has gone from being the "home base of al-Qaida" to being a "rising democracy." Pakistan, once a "safe transit point for terrorists," is now an ally. Saudi Arabia, he says, "is taking the fight to al-Qaida." Libya has given up its quest for weapons of mass destruction.

Most of all, Bush defends the war in Iraq. He repeats the litany of reasons for going to war: Saddam was defying the will of the United Nations, he harbored terrorists, he funded suicide bombers, he used weapons of mass destruction against his own people. "In other words, we saw a threat," Bush says. "Members of the United States Congress from both political parties, including my opponent, looked at the intelligence and came to the same conclusion."

What Bush doesn't acknowledge is what went wrong: The WMD were never found. We weren't welcomed as liberators. Oil revenues haven't paid for the war. It wasn't a cakewalk. What went wrong? Why? Given four more years, what does Bush plan to do about it? He hasn't told us yet, other than suggesting "more of the same."

"Every incumbent who asks for your vote has got to answer one central question, and that's 'Why?'" Bush says. "Why should the American people give me the high privilege of serving as your president for four more years?" The answer Bush gives to that question is his record. He says he deserves re-election because of what he has already done. At Wednesday's first event, in Davenport, Iowa, U.S. Rep. Jim Nussle embodies this attitude when he introduces Bush to the crowd. "There is no one I would have wanted to be at the helm of this country these last four years than you," Nussle says.

Bush and Nussle are asking the wrong question. The real question an incumbent faces is, what now? What's next? So far, Bush isn't telling. A president's record matters, but the reason it matters is because it has predictive value. Bush's defenders say he is a transformational figure, that he's willing to take on big problems and challenges. Wouldn't you like to know what Bush believes those big problems and challenges would be in foreign policy over the next four years? Are there gathering threats that, like Iraq, he thinks need to be tackled "before they materialize"? The president says that is the lesson of Sept. 11, that the nation must confront its security problems pre-emptively. Where else does he plan to apply that lesson? Does he plan to tell us?

After the 2002 midterm elections, when Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill objected to another round of tax cuts for the rich, Vice President Cheney told O'Neill to discard his worries. We won the midterm elections, Cheney said. "This is our due." As much as liberals dislike President Bush's record over the past four years, it's the prospect of another four years that terrifies them. What they want to know—what keeps them awake at night—is what President Bush hasn't answered yet: What are you going to do next? This time, what will be your due?


          Dean Goes Offline   

MADISON, WIS.—If the "Wisconsin or bust" primary began as the bargaining stage of the Dean campaign's death, as one staffer told me, then by Election Day, everyone had settled comfortably into acceptance. It's not quite right to say that those in attendance at Howard Dean's primary-night rally at the Madison Concourse hotel appeared resigned in the face of their candidate's defeat. It's fairer to say that Dean's impending withdrawal from the presidential campaign felt irrelevant to the entire affair, as if it had already happened. Staffers openly discussed future plans—What are you doing tomorrow? Wanna party with me in New York this weekend?—in the press filing center. Hardly anyone watched the returns come in on CNN. In contrast to the sober yet chaotic feel of Wesley Clark's campaign in its death throes, what was almost certainly Dean's final presidential campaign event (other than his withdrawal speech) had a celebratory, even self-congratulatory air. They came to praise Caesar, not to bury him.

Dean knows how to give only one kind of speech, a victory speech, and that's what he delivered. You have "really worked hard to change this country and change this party," he told his assembled supporters. "And guess what? You have succeeded." It was a victory for a movement, not a campaign. "You have already written the platform of the Democratic Party for this election," Dean said. "A year ago, the Democrats were falling all over each other to vote for the war in Iraq. They sure don't talk like that now." Dean also claimed credit for getting the Democrats to stand up to "reckless budget deficits," "huge tax cuts," and "the president's education policies, which leave every child behind."

But the change in the Democratic Party, Dean declared, would be illusory if he and his supporters did not continue to challenge the Democratic establishment. "We together have only begun our work," he said. In what sounded like a shot at John Kerry, he continued: "The transformation that we have wrought is a transformation of convenience, not of conviction, and we have to fight, and fight, and fight until it becomes a transformation of conviction."

What does this mean, exactly? No one's certain. Other than Dean himself, "I don't think anyone but Roy Neel knows" what's going to happen next, an aide told me. But it's wrong to think that it means that Dean will continue campaigning. Instead, the smart money is that when Dean drops out of the presidential race, he will likely announce that he and his supporters will remain active in the campaign by transforming Dean for America into a political action committee or a 527 group, something that would allow him to try to become a power broker in Democratic politics.

If Dean dislikes Kerry as much as he is reported to, and if he really thinks John Edwards would be a superior nominee, then he's right to get out of the race quickly. I'm not convinced that Edwards is more electable than Kerry—with apologies to my colleague Will Saletan, so far the evidence for Edwards' electability is that he keeps losing elections—but a two-man race is Edwards' only chance. CNN and the Los Angeles Times will do voters a disservice if they invite Dennis Kucinich and Al Sharpton to their Feb. 26 debate. Kerry cited the fact that Kucinich and Sharpton were still in the race to dodge a question from Anderson Cooper about the prospect of a head-to-head debate with Edwards. But CNN shouldn't be asking Kerry whether he's going to debate Edwards one-on-one. They should be telling him.

One final thought about Tuesday's results: Isn't it possible that Matt Drudge, and not NAFTA, was the factor that led all those undecided voters to break for Edwards at the last minute? If a Wisconsin voter knew one thing about Kerry, a Dean staffer told me, it was that there was a rumor that the senator had an affair with a younger woman. It was all over local radio, not to mention the fact that Rush Limbaugh was flogging it for three hours each afternoon. Yes, the woman has denied it. Yes, there's no evidence for it. And yes, there is evidence that Drudge got the facts wrong in his report. But just because a rumor is unsubstantiated doesn't mean that voters aren't affected by it. Live by electability, die by electability. If the entire rationale of your campaign is that you can win in November, voters would be completely justified in rejecting you because of a rumor, even one that they believe is untrue, if they think that other voters might not vote for you because of it.

I can't quantify Drudge's impact on the campaign, but his rumor-mongering is the simplest explanation for the closeness of the race. I find it hard to believe that the independents and Republicans casting ballots for Edwards harbor deep anti-NAFTA feelings, while the Democrats voting for Kerry are ardent free traders.

The Internet couldn't win the presidency for Dean. But it's possible that the Internet almost lost Wisconsin for Kerry.


          Howard Dean's Very Bad Night   

DES MOINES, Iowa—"Prove it or not," Howard Dean told his supporters at a rally Sunday in Davenport. "Now is the time to see if this works," to see if the unorthodox, Internet-fueled campaign assembled by Dean and his campaign manager, Joe Trippi, translates into votes. "Tomorrow, at 6:30 p.m., you can prove it or not." The answer Iowans gave him was a raspberry: Or not.

I attended a West Des Moines caucus Monday night with Dean's Iowa press secretary, Sarah Leonard, and her feeling about the race was that it would be close, so close perhaps that they wouldn't be able to call it that night. She felt it was a three-way race, between Dean, Kerry, and Gephardt. "Edwards, I just don't think you can build an organization in 48 hours," she said. But it wasn't close. Momentum beat organization, both Dean's digital one and Gephardt's analog one. (Leonard did say before the caucus, however, that the rumor that Dean had a hard count of 50,000 was preposterous. "If we had a hard count of 50,000, I'd probably be at the Val Air," she joked, referring to the ballroom site of Dean's caucus night party.)

The results from our caucus reflected the results of the 1,992 other caucuses in the state in one respect: Kerry got twice as many delegates as Howard Dean, four to two (with John Edwards picking up four as well). There were lots of new and first-time caucus participants, so many that the organizers ran out of forms to register them. But they weren't the new voters the Dean campaign wanted. George Davey, the precinct captain for the Dean campaign, said he was hoping for 25 to 50 Dean voters between the ages of 18 and 25, but only one showed up. "I think if we could blame [Dean's loss] on anyone, blame it on the 18- to 25-year-olds, because they were nonexistent," he said.

Davey, who is 37, also said Dean needed to be less negative toward his opponents. And another Dean volunteer, Toby Sackton, a 57-year-old from Boston, complained that Dean's television ads weren't any good. "We saw three ads, one by Kerry, one by Edwards, and one by Dean. Dean's was by far the worst," he said. "It was an ad aimed at getting the supporters out," not appealing to voters who didn't already like Dean.

I think there's something to Sackton's complaint. I heard four or five Dean radio ads on my drive to the caucus, all with the same message: Dean had the courage to stand up to President Bush on the war while the other major candidates folded. Dean's saturation TV ads focused on nefarious "corporations" and "special interests" and "Washington insiders," rather than the things I'd seen Dean use on the stump (in addition to his stance on the war) to appeal to voters who hadn't heard of him already: his Vermont record of balanced budgets, health care, and the state's "Success by Six" program for children.

In his final days in Iowa, Dean's campaign was about his campaign. To the extent issues were at stake at all, Dean's message focused on the past—Do you want a candidate who was against the war, as Dean put it in Davenport, "not now, but then"?—while John Kerry focused on a future consideration—Do you want a candidate who will raise your taxes? Beyond the war, Dean hit three notes: What his opponents said and did in 2002 and 2001, the fact that he's raised lots of money in small donations over the Internet, and tiresome bromides about the special interests/corporations/Washington insiders. It's a high-tech version of Al Gore's "people vs. the powerful" campaign. That's not good enough.

Four years ago, George W. Bush rebounded from a surprisingly large defeat in New Hampshire by co-opting his opponent's message and recasting himself as a "reformer with results." Dean might do the same. If he's got a tax cut in his back pocket, it's time to bring it out. And he needs to do a better job of introducing himself and his record to voters who haven't been paying attention to the campaign for six months or a year.

The early signs of that happening aren't auspicious. Rather than reaching out to the unconverted, Dean fired up his base of supporters at the Val Air. He grinned, ripped off his jacket, rolled up his sleeves, and flung an orange "Perfect Storm" hat into the crowd. Then he started waving an American flag. Walter Shapiro's metaphor of Dean as an "aging rock star reduced to reprising his greatest hits in smaller and smaller clubs" never felt more apt.

At the Hotel Fort Des Moines bar on Saturday night, the New Republic's Ryan Lizza told Dean strategist Steve McMahon that his campaign needed a new message. McMahon shook his head. You and I are in different businesses, he said. The press is bored with our message, but we need to dance with the girl that brung us. I think McMahon's wrong. I think Dean's campaign became much more anti-business and much less moderate than it was six months ago, and it became a campaign about a messianic figure and his movement rather than a blunt, moderate Democrat and his policies. But even if McMahon is right, he must know by now that it's time to find another girl.


          Organization Man   

DES MOINES, IOWA—Tim Connolly should be scared, maybe even terrified, that Howard Dean is going to lose and lose big. Not because of the much-touted polls that show Dean sinking to a four-way tie in Iowa with the caucuses less than 48 hours away, but because Connolly, the Dean campaign's Iowa state field director, has seen the campaign's internal numbers. And using traditional Iowa math, the numbers don't look good.

"We did an analysis of our 'ones' "—the voters the campaign has determined are committed to caucusing for Dean (a "two" is a leaner, and a "three" is undecided), Connolly says. "Sixty-five percent of them have never caucused before, which is an extremely high number and would scare the shit out of most campaigns," because they'd be worried that the voters wouldn't show up Monday night. But Connolly's not scared. "Common sense would say I should be, but I'm not," he says. "We have the organizational strength to meet that challenge."

Organization. It's the mantra of every pundit on television and every campaign on the ground two days before the caucuses. At most of the candidate events I've attended since arriving in Iowa Thursday, I had the feeling I was watching a sideshow from the real campaign that was taking place somewhere else: on the streets and in people's homes. The story of the final days of Dean's Iowa campaign isn't his bus trip or his stump speeches. It's his 3,500 out-of-state volunteers who've come from all over the country—and farther, including three expatriates from Tokyo—to canvass the state. Over the course of the campaign's final three days, they're knocking on more than 200,000 doors. If Dean wins Monday, Connolly and the campaign will have proved that the Internet's effect on politics isn't just about fund-raising or Meetup or blogging. The Internet can win the ground war.

"We did an analysis of every precinct that is walkable, which is not a precise science," Connolly says. Those walkable precincts make up only about a third of the state's 1,993 precincts, but they include probably 85 percent to 90 percent of the delegate total. The Dean campaign mapped each one using computer software, and it determined the address of every registered Democrat and independent voter in the precincts. Suitably armed with the map, the addresses, and the right amount of Dean paraphernalia, the volunteers are swarming the state. Even if they don't convert a single voter, they return with important information—who's supporting Kerry or Edwards or Gephardt, who's undecided but going to the caucuses, who likes Dean but needs a babysitter to be able to caucus—that the campaign can use to fine-tune its strategy up to the final hours.

What does this have to do with the Internet? The vast majority of the volunteers who make up this weekend's "Perfect Storm" for Dean signed up online, transmitting their names, their housing needs, their flight information, and more. "We could not do the Storm without the Internet," Connolly says. Nor could the campaign have been prepared well enough to have specific jobs ready for each volunteer as he or she arrived. "It's still just the Stormers knocking on a door. But the back end—they would not be here and effectively employed and utilized were it not for the Internet."

The Net is the tool that's enabled the Dean campaign to capitalize on the grass-roots energy created by its candidate. In the past, an insurgent candidate like Dean would generate excitement, but he wouldn't be able to turn it into an organization. "This happened with Gary Hart," says Connolly, who worked for Hart's '84 campaign. "You got excited about the guy named Gary Hart, you liked what he was saying, but there was no local office to call, you couldn't go to a Meetup, etc."

The Internet excels at just keeping people involved with the campaign. "A volunteer who has nothing to do will become discouraged and no longer volunteer," Connolly says. "You used to do things. You'd have cases of envelopes, and you'd have people address them. And when they're done, you'd throw them away." Or you'd have volunteers enter unnecessary data into computers. Just to keep people involved and interested in the campaign and the candidate. The Dean blog serves the same function, while also serving as a communications medium and a fund-raising tool. The role of the Internet and the blog in the campaign's ground organization is what Dean's skeptics haven't understood, Connolly says. "They think that the Dean campaign is simply a cybercampaign. They don't realize that each of those people also lives in the analog world."

Just a couple of hours after I finished talking with Connolly, the Dean campaign was hit with its latest piece of bad news: the latest Des Moines Register poll, which shows Kerry in the lead with 26 percent, followed by Edwards at 23 percent, Dean at 20 percent, Gephardt at 18 percent, and a 4 percent margin of error. Connolly told me he doesn't "lose any sleep over the Zogby poll or any other poll," because he knows their strength on the ground.

Of course, every campaign hails its organizational strength. Gephardt spokesman Bill Burton told the Des Moines Register of his candidate's campaign, "This has been an organizational force in the state that has never been seen before by anybody, Democrats or Republicans." I asked Connolly what he'd be banking on if he were Gephardt's field director. Organized labor, the fact that he's won Iowa before, "and just the general denial that goes on in campaigns," he said. Monday night, we'll see who's in denial.


          "We'll See If It Happens"   

NASHUA, N.H.—The metaphor of choice for Howard Dean's Internet-fueled campaign is "open-source politics": a two-way campaign in which the supporters openly collaborate with the campaign to improve it, and in which the contributions of the "group mind" prove smarter than that of any lone individual.

Dean campaign manager Joe Trippi has admitted on numerous occasions (including this Slashdot post) that his time in Silicon Valley affected his thinking about politics. "I used to work for a little while for Progeny Linux Systems," Trippi told cyber-guru Lawrence Lessig in an August interview. "I always wondered how could you take that same collaboration that occurs in Linux and open source and apply it here. What would happen if there were a way to do that and engage everybody in a presidential campaign?"

But tonight, at the end of a town hall meeting at Daniel Webster College, is the first time I've seen the metaphor in action. Even if it had nothing to do with the Internet.

At the end of tonight's event, Paul Johnson, an independent voter from Nashua who supported John McCain in 2000 and has supported Dean since May, tells Dean that he's "deeply troubled" by the idea that his candidate is going to turn down federal matching funds and bust the caps on campaign spending. Politics is awash in too much money, Johnson says. Why not take the moral high ground and abide by the current system? That sounds like a great idea until Bush spends $200 million, Dean says. Well, then "challenge him to spend less," Johnson replies. Tell him you'll stay under the spending limits if he does, too. Dean's face lights up. "I'll do that at the press conference on Saturday," he says. "That's a great idea." (Saturday at noon is when Dean is scheduled to announce the results of the campaign vote on whether to abandon public financing.)

I walk over to Dean's New Hampshire press secretary, Matthew Gardner, and tell him his candidate just agreed, in an instant, to announce on Saturday that he'll stay under the federal spending caps for publicly financed candidates, if President Bush agrees to do the same (which, admittedly, is more than a little unlikely.) Gardner looks puzzled, then laughs. "That'll be interesting," he says. "We'll see if it happens."

          "La lectura no entusiasma a los chicos de hoy. ¿Acaso lo hacía en el pasado?"   
ANNE-MARIE CHARTIER DOCTORA EN CIENCIAS DE LA EDUCACION.
Entrevistada por Claudio Martyniuk. cmartyniuk@clarin.com


De la exigencia por memorizar en la Edad Media a la necesidad actual de manejar todos los soportes, leer es siempre una actividad que oscila entre el placer y los obstáculos. La escuela no es ajena a visiones tan extremas.
La historia de las tecnologías de escritura y lectura, así como de los soportes materiales de los textos, se entrelaza con la historia de la alfabetización. Y la lectura de ese pasado brinda una renovada comprensión del presente y de las tareas de la escuela ante un objeto clave de nuestra cultura: el libro. Sobre él descansa, ambiguamente, la pretensión civilizatoria. Anne-Marie Chartier es una especialista en la historia de las prácticas de enseñanza de la lectura y escritura reconocida internacionalmente. Visitó Buenos Aires para dictar un seminario en el posgrado en Lectura, escritura y educación de Flacso. En la Edad Media pocas personas sabían leer y accedían a los libros. En los conventos surgió la lectura silenciosa, interna. Esa innovación, ¿qué proyección tuvo?Fue muy importante porque instaló los gestos intelectuales del trabajo con los libros que se mantienen hasta hoy. Pero si bien instaló la lectura mental, moderna y muy rápida, hay una diferencia fundamental con la manera de leer actual: en el medioevo, leer era memorizar íntegramente los textos fundamentales, mientras que hoy lo que esperamos de la lectura mental es la extracción de las informaciones principales de un texto y no su memorización literal. Durante siglos se enseñó a los niños que leer era fijar la memoria literal de un texto. Y los saberes que eran considerados fundamentales para los niños eran los religiosos, los cuales son leídos, repetidos, cantados, recitados. El lugar donde hoy podemos encontrar este estilo de lectura es la poesía. La lectura de poesía nos da una idea de lo que era la lectura en la Edad Media.La minoritaria lectura de poesía en parte parece tener que ver con la falta de lectura en voz alta. ¿Es una pérdida irremediable?No. Felizmente existen los cantantes. El lugar donde nos vemos obligados a pensar la relación entre la voz y el texto son las canciones. En el espectáculo, también en la ópera, esa cuestión de la relación entre la voz y el texto no es algo residual. En la publicidad y en los medios modernos se integran imagen, texto y voz. Pienso que los medios audiovisuales, con las revoluciones de la imagen y el sonido, restituyeron a nuestra vida de lectores una tradición de lectura en voz alta que muestra que nuestra memoria fija las cosas con más fuerza cuando lee con todos nuestros sentidos, con la imagen, el texto y la voz.Sin embargo, la "Galaxia Gutenberg", centrada en el libro, parece desplazada por la imagen. La "Galaxia Gutenberg" perdió el mundo de la imagen y del color para entrar en un mundo en blanco y negro, un mundo gris. Ese descubrimiento extraordinario de la modernidad -la imprenta- en parte suprimió la riqueza de la tradición medieval que vinculaba imagen de color y texto. En la modernidad, la introducción de imágenes en el texto exigió un largo tiempo de trabajo tecnológico hasta llegar a insertar viñetas, pequeñas láminas en el interior de los libros. En la actualidad, reencontramos la riqueza estética medieval en textos que incluyen imágenes en color. La novedad es el sonido. Texto, imagen, color y sonido están conectados en los nuevos soportes tecnológicos.Pero es problemática la comprensión de las imágenes. El procesamiento de la imagen no es secuencial o lineal, como lo es el procesamiento del texto escrito, y hay interacciones entre las imágenes y el texto que no son fáciles de analizar. No hay un procedimiento de lectura de imágenes que pueda enseñarse como se enseña la alfabetización. Siento preocupación cuando se habla de leer imágenes o situaciones, como si la lectura fuera el paradigma de todo entendimiento. Es una metáfora: no se leen las imágenes, las imágenes se comprenden, se analizan, se perciben, se sienten. Decir que las leemos es una manera de hablar que obstaculiza. Las imágenes funcionan de la misma manera en diferentes culturas, y niños que no hablan el mismo idioma pueden comprender la misma imagen. Hay fenómenos que son específicos de la imagen. Yo puedo leer un libro del siglo XVIII con el sentimiento de que hay una continuidad entre esa escritura y la actual. Pero la forma en que están ilustrados los libros del siglo XVIII no tiene nada que ver con la ilustración de los libros actuales. Para la educación esto es un problema porque no hay tradición en la escuela de una cultura de la imagen que no sea una ilustración de lo escrito. En la escuela primero está lo escrito y la imagen aparece como un complemento para adornar, mientras que en la vida no es así.¿Sólo esa función cumple la ilustración en los libros escolares?Hay una evolución desde fines del siglo XIX, con la creación de la escuela republicana -con Sarmiento, aquí en Argentina, y Jules Ferry en Francia; la historia de la creación de la escuela republicana en Argentina y en Francia se parece mucho. En ella, lo prioritario es el texto y las imágenes están para fijar la memoria, utilizando también la emoción en la representación de los próceres de la patria. El libro de Héctor Rubén Cucuzza "Yo, argentino. La construcción de la Nación en los libros escolares (1873-1930)" muestra que ante los próceres que marcaron la historia -que es como la historia de los santos que marcaron la historia de la Iglesia- hay un relato mítico que necesita imágenes, porque ellas fijan la representación de los héroes que jalonan el relato del texto. También los textos de ciencias tienen imágenes.Pero es distinta la ilustración de esos libros escolares que quieren dar una idea del discurso científico con lecciones sobre el agua, el aire o la circulación de la sangre. Se ilustran con esquemas. Los chicos tienen que reproducir el esquema de circulación de la sangre, por ejemplo, mientras que no se les pide que dibujen al prócer. Hay una introducción al gesto científico de representación abstracta de la realidad, la que parece aportar una verdad invisible. En libros escolares muy simples aparece la representación de la variedad de los discursos que existen en el mundo científico. En geografía es el mapa, y en la escuela cada disciplina científica está marcada por un tipo de uso diferente de la articulación imagen-texto. La alianza imagen-texto funciona como un indicador disciplinario, y los chicos saben de inmediato, al abrir un libro, en qué disciplina están, aunque no sepan leer. La escuela encontró un medio muy eficaz para darles a los niños una clasificación de los saberes.¿Hoy los chicos no se entusiasman con la lectura?Parece que no, pero tampoco en el pasado, ¿no cree? En definitiva, habría que probar que la lectura no entusiasma a los chicos hoy y que los entusiasmaba ayer. No hay que mezclar los recuerdos nostálgicos de los amantes de los libros con la realidad de la generación anterior. Yo no tengo la sensación de que en la generación de mi abuela había entusiasmo por los libros. Existía mucha desconfianza respecto de los libros y cuando a las chicas les gustaba leer, se pensaba que eran malas amas de casa y madres y que perdían el tiempo. Había desconfianza hacia los libros en los sectores populares; los consideraban pasatiempo de ricos. Y la mayoría de la gente no leía, salvo el diario para saber las noticias locales y quiénes habían muerto, pero no se tenía la idea de que a uno le faltaba algo cuando no leía. Esto se ha olvidado. Se tiende a reconstruir el pasado con la cultura de las clases medias, que son las clases que enseñan. La extensión de la alfabetización, ¿generó más lectores?Se esperaba, con la generalización de la alfabetización y de los estudios prolongados, un aumento del número de personas que irían a bibliotecas, comprarían libros y leerían. Cuando eso se volvió posible -con los libros de bolsillo y los diarios accesibles- llegó la revolución tecnológica de la televisión y después Internet. ¿Y qué puede hacer la escuela en esa batalla?La escuela está tironeada por dos objetivos: existe para desarrollar una cultura general, científica y literaria, pero debe preparar a los chicos para el mercado de trabajo, algo que nunca antes había tenido que asumir. La cuestión del mercado laboral dependía de una formación profesional o de la demanda local, pero no era rol de la escuela preparar a los niños para oficios, simplemente porque la mayoría de los oficios no requería saber leer. En la actualidad, todos los oficios, aun los de bajo nivel de calificación, exigen el conocimiento de la lectura y la escritura. Un ejemplo: en los hoteles Accor, una cadena internacional, el personal de limpieza tiene un protocolo de 40 ítems para verificar. Cada vez que entran en una habitación, deben ver si funciona la luz, etc. Es una lista escrita y se debe tachar con una cruz. Una mujer que no sabe leer y escribir no puede ser mucama. Eso era impensable antes, cuando para las tareas manuales se requería fuerza de trabajo, no competencia de lectura. ¿Cómo afecta esto a los maestros?Los docentes no desean quedar sometidos a la demanda económica, pero saben que los chicos vienen a la escuela también con una expectativa de inserción social y de éxito en el mercado laboral. Esos imperativos económicos pesan y, como consecuencia, los imperativos culturales de la escuela quedan un poco como de lujo. Se duda: "¿Es necesaria la poesía en la escuela?" Esto trae un problema de identidad cultural en los docentes porque no eligieron la profesión con esa perspectiva.

Magyar festők és grafikusok életrajzi lexikona I-II.
Festő. Tanulmányait Lápossy-Hegedűs Géza irányításával kezdte. A budapesti Képzőművészeti Főiskolán Glatz Oszkár és Karlovszky Bertalan tanítványa volt. 1935-ben diplomázott. 1933-ban a főiskola jubileumi tárlatán a "Nagymamám" című alkotásával elnyerte a Balló-díjat. 1935-1936-ban római ösztöndíjas volt, és a Collegium Hungaricum-ban töltött nyolc hónapot. Szorgalmasan dolgozott, közben tanulmányokat folytatott az Accademia delle Belle Arti freskó-osztályán, Ferazzi irányítása mellett. Az itt készült "Maria Surigia" című képmását 1936-ban a Collegium Hungaricum kiállításán mutatta be, amelyet az olasz állam vásárolt meg. A "Római szobrásznő" című képe 1937-ben elnyerte a Jellinek-díjat. Az alkotás jelenleg a Magyar Nemzeti Galéria tulajdona. Számos kelet- és nyugat-európai országban járt tanulmányúton. 1931-től szerepelt hazai és külföldi bemutatókon. Egyéni kiállításai voltak Szegeden (1942, 1958, 1963, 1972), az Ernst Múzeumban (1959), Olaszországban (1961), Jugoszláviában (1968). Nagyobb anyaggal szerepelt a szegedi művészek 1967-es Magyar Nemzeti Galéria-béli kiállításán. 1932-ben Balló-díjat, 1937-ben Fényes Adolf-díjat kapott, 1972-ben Szeged város alkotói-díját, 1979-ben a Szegedi Nyári Tárlat díját nyerte el. Éveken keresztül (tizenöt év megszakítással) a szegedi Tanárképző Főiskola rajzi tanszékének vezetőjeként működött. Korábban protréfestőként volt ismeretes. Karlovszky mellett a rajz kultuszára és a csendéleti formalátásra kapott indíttatásokat, később Glatz hatott rá, így a rajzos analizálás helyett a művész a szélesebb festőiségre tért át. A naturalizmussal elvi szakítást jelentő harmadik stílusát a novocento jelképes, színesen dekoratív szellemében alakította ki. Jeles grafikus volt. Több irodalmi művet illusztrált. Monumentális feladatokkal is foglalkozott (freskók a Petőfi-telepi templomban stb. ). 1957-ben a városban végzett művészi tevékenysége elismerésül a szegedi Collegium Artium Képzőművészeti tagozata vezetőjévé választotta. Műveinek jelentős részét a szegedi Móra F. Múzeum őrzi. (PZ-SzMF, D. E.: Műv. 1927/6, ML, Sz. Z.: Műv. 1973/1, Műv. 1982/10. D. F.

1935-ben fejezte be főiskolai tanulmányait Karlovszky Bertalan és Glatz Oszkár növendékeként. 1935-1936-ban római ösztöndíjas. Számos kelet- és nyugat-európai országban megfordult tanulmányúton. Egyéni kiállításai voltak Szegeden (1943, 1958, 1936, 1938, 1972), az Ernst Múzeumban (1959) és Dunaújvárosban (1977), illetve külföldön Olaszországban (1961) és Jugoszáviában (1968). Hosszabb időt töltött a szegedi tanárképző főiskola rajztanszékének élén. Díja: Balló-díj (1933), Jellinek és Fényes Adolf-díj (1937), Szeged város alkotói díja (1972), a Szegedi Nyári Tárlat díja (1979). Emlékkiállítást 1982-ben a szegedi Móra Ferenc Múzeum Képtárban és a Nemzeti Galériában rendezték meg. - Gazdag arculatú festményei, monotypiái és tollrajzai híven tükrözték állandó megújulási vágyát, amelynek hajtóereje az intellektus és az intuició feszültségéből eredt. A művészet figuratív és absztrakt törekvései egyként érdekelték; elvont műveiben a szürrealizmus módszereivel közelítette meg napjaink jelenségeit; a kultúrhistória és a mitológiai eseményeit.

Festő, grafikus, művészeti író
1930-35: MKF, mesterei: Karlovszky Bertalan, Glatz Oszkár. 1932, 1933: Balló-díj; 1937: Jellinek-díj; Fényes Adolf-díj. Képzőművészeti tanulmányaival párhuzamosan két évig jogot hallgatott az ELTE jogi karán. 1935-ben ösztöndíjat nyert: Rómában, a Coll. Hung. -ban töltött nyolc hónapot. Néhány vallási témájú szegedi freskója korareneszánsz mesterek hatását mutatja, de szorosan nem kapcsolódott a Római Iskola törekvéseihez. Szakma sikereit pályája kezdetén bravúros portréművészetével vívta ki, és a műfaj szeretete egész munkásságát végigkísérte. Tanulmányutak: 1937: Párizs, 1939: Szicília. 1947-ben felkérésre megszervezte és elindította a szegedi TF Rajz- és Művészettörténet Tanszékének munkáját, s ekkortól megbízott tanszékvezetőként tevékenykedett itt 1957-ig, amikor politikai okok miatt állásából felmentették és csak 1972-ben helyezték vissza. Időközben festői pályája töretlenül folytatódott. Vinkler László pedagógiai tevékenységéből adódóan kísérletező hajlamú művész volt, szellemi rokona az 1945-47-ig hivatalosan, majd felosztása után laza csoportként működő Európai Iskolának, amely a Szentendrei Iskola hagyományait és az európai haladó művészi formákat, a kubizmust, szürrealizmust, non-figuráicót preferálta. A 60-as években már együtt tartott a korszak egyetemes haladó irányázatával (absztrakt expresszionizmus, tasizmus). Az alkalmazott művészeti stílusok mindig az adott alkotói problémafelvetéséhez igazodtak, filozófiai mélységű gondolataikkal és igényességükkel magas színvonalat képviseltek. Az analitikus kubizmus a háború pusztításának kifejezője, a szürrelaizmus mitológiai példázatának hordozója, a tasizmus a belső világának kivetülése volt. Természetelvű ábrázolásokon keresztül jutott el azokhoz a szürrealisztikus művészeti elvekhez, amelyeknek nagyszerű példái azok az automatikus, a vonal erejét hangsúlyozó figurális tusrajzok, amelyekkel a modern magyar grafika a korszak törekvéseihez kapcsolódott. (Szalay Lajos, Kondor Béla, Martyn Ferenc. ) Ezekkel párhuzamosan kezdett tasiszta kísérletei nyomán jutott el művészi törekvéseinek csúcspontjára. A csorgatásos technikával véletlenszerűen keletkezett fekete-fehér alap-kompozíciókat gesztusokkal, felismerhető természeti formákat idéző festék-foltokkal tette elvenné. Foglalkoztatta a XX. századi művész és a képzőművészet létjogosultságának kérdése, helye a nemzeti és az egyetemes kultúra egészében. Írásaiban saját maga ideológusaként sajátos terminológia-alkotással is megpróbálkozott (Szürreafaelllista kiáltvány, Szürcézanneizmus, 1966). 1957-ben a városban végzett művészi munkája elismeréséül a szegedi Collegium Artium Képzőművészeti tagozata vezetőjévé választotta. 1972-ben az Oktatásügy Kiváló Dolgozója. A szegedi patrióta festő jelentőségét adja, hogy önálló kisérletezések eredményeképpen jutott el az avantgárd képzőművészet második hulámának törekvéseihez. Művészetének meghatározó eleme a múlttal való kontiniutáskeresés is, a görög mitolgóia jelképrendszerének felhasználása és reneszánsz parafrázisainak (pl.: Tiziano: Vénusz) sorozata. Vinkler László élete utolsó évtizedében, részben olaszországi és görögországi utazásainak hatására visszatért a természetelvű ábrázolásokhoz is. Műveinek jelentős részét a szegedi Móra Ferenc M. őrzi.

Magyar festők és grafikusok életrajzi lexikona I-II.
Festő, grafikus. Művészeti tanulmányait a budapesti Mintarajziskolában kezdte Székely Bertalan és Lotz Károly irányításával. 1886-ban került ki Münchenbe, ahol egy évig Hackl növendéke volt a Képzőművészeti Akadémián, majd a Hollósy-körhöz csatlakozott. 1887-ben az ifjú művésznövendék a bajor fővárosból a művészetek központjába, Párizsba utazott. Csók István és Ferenczy Károly társaságában a Julian Akadémián képezte magát, Fleury és Bouguereau korrigált neki, de sokkal erősebben hatott rá Bastien Lepage és Dagnan Bouveret művészete. Iványi itt tapasztalta meg, milyen is a francia későnaturalizmus, mely annyira lázba hozta a Hollósy-kört. 1889-ben állította ki "Esti szürkület" című tájképét a Műcsarnokban, ahol ezután egyre gyakrabban szerepelt. 1890-ben festette "Isten kardja" című alkotását, a következő évben pedig "Ave Maria" című kompozícióját, amelyek a Bastien Lepage-i finom naturalizmus szellemében fogantak. Tökéletesen tolmácsolták a kiválasztott mester művészetét. 1892-ben Ferenczy Károly társaságában Párizsból visszatért Münchenben és műtermet bérelt. Hollósy társaságához csatlakozva, már sikereket felmutató alkotóként részt kapott iskolájának vezetésében. Több évet töltött Münchenben és sűrűn küldte műveit a Műcsarnok bemutatóira, melyen 1892-ben láthatta először a műkedvelő közönség, a "Pásztoroknak megjelenő angyal" című festményét. Nagy sikert aratva elnyerte a Műbarátok Körének 1000 forintos ösztöndíját. 1893-ban az orosz peredvizsnyikek művészetéhez közel álló nagyszabású képet festett (Nihilisták sorsot húznak), amely nagy feltűnést keltett. 1894-ben Egyiptomban járt, s megalkotta a "Szent család" című kompozícióját. A millenniumi kiállításra készült "Tatárjárás után" című nagyméretű történelmi alkotása. 1896-ban Hollósyval ő is Nagybányára ment, egyik alapítója lett a művésztelepnek, s egyik népszerű tanára a festőiskolának. Miként Ferenczy Károly is, megtelepedett a bányavárosban, s már nem csak nyaranta járt le oda festeni. Rövidesen családot alapított, feleségül vette B. Irént, a helybeli görög katolikus esperes lányát. Itt festett alkotásain a plein air problémáját pendítette meg, művészetére főleg Ferenczy Károly hatott. Egymás után festette meg azokat a műveit, amelyekkel hírnevét megalapozta: Holdfelkelte (1899), Völgyben (1900), Bércek közt (1901), Itatás (1902), Tavaszi kirándulás (1903), Fehér szoba (1904), Ruhaszárítás (190? ). Vásznain a fénnyel telített színek, a napolvasztotta sárgák, okkerek, kobaltkékek, harsogó zöldek érvényesülnek. Megalkotásukkal Grünwald a magyar festészet jelentős koloristái közé lépett elő. 1903-ban Nagybánya kisszámú evangélikus közössége őt kérte föl templomuk oltárképének megfestésére (Jézus a Getsemáné kertben). 1904-ben megkapta a Franknói-díjat és a sorvasztó tüdőbajával küszködő Maticska Jenővel Rómába utazott. Már a következő évben visszatért Nagybányára és 1906-ban megrendezte első gyűjteményes tárlatát a Nemzeti Szalonban. Czóbel Béla és a Párizsban megfordult pályatársai hatására stílusán változtatott, elfordulta a nagybányai szigorú természetelvűségtől, Paul Gauguin expresszionizmusa felé közeledett. E korszakának legjelentősebb műve a Révai-villa számára festett "Vendégség" című alkotás. 1909-ben a MIÉNK kiállításán már nagyszabású dekoratív festményekkel szerepelt. 1910-ben a kecskeméti művésztelepre költözött, ahová Kecskemét városa hívta meg. A kecskeméti telep megalapításával a festő pályája elvált a nagybányaiakétól. Éveken keresztül vezetője és tanára volt a művésztelepnek, monumentális dekoratív feladatokkal foglalkozott. Itt alkotta meg dekoratív kompozícióit: a Kecskeméti Kaszinó homlokzatát díszítő allegórikus csoportjait (1912), majd a "Tavasz ébredése" című művét (1913), melyre a Műcsarnokban megkapta az állami kis aranyérmet. 1919-ben a Balaton környékén telepedett meg. Itt alkotta 1920-ban egyik legmegragadóbb tájfestményét, a nevezetes "Kútágas"-t, majd a Balaton vízének és egének fény- és színjátékát megérzékítő munkáinak hosszú sorát. Közben állami megrendelésre a debreceni egyetem aulája számára egy nagyméretű történelmi kompozíciót készített. A festészet mellett grafikai tevékenysége is jelentős volt. Számos színezett rézkarcot (Pihenő cigányok a Balaton partján stb. ), ceruzarajzot (Golgota, 1916; Slevenszky Lajos arcképe, 1925; Itatás; Alvó nő, 1921 stb. ) és vízfestményt (Önarckép, 1916) készített. A Király színház új darabjához, a Mézeskalácshoz díszleteket tervezett, a "Greco" gobelinszövő cégnek készített kartonokat. Ez utóbbiak közül "Táncolók" c. kompozícióját többféle elgondolás szerint vitte fel vászonra. A nagybányai, Európa szerte híres festőkolónia alapító mesterei között az ő művészete követte legrugalmasabban mozgalmas korának stílusváltozásait, a legváltozatosabb munkásságú magyar festőművészek egyike volt. Stílusának minden változásán át hűséges kísérője volt eredendően komponáló tehetsége és elragadó színfantáziája. Díjak: a párizsi nemzetközi tárlat III. osztályú érme; a Lipótvárosi Kaszinó 1000 koronás díja; III. osztályú érem (Saint Louis); Ráth György-díj; Állami Nagy Aranyérem; a barcelonai világkiállítás nagy aranyérme. Alkotásai helyet kaptak a Magyar Nemzeti Galériában, több magyarországi és külhoni múzeumban, hazai és külföldi magánygyűjteményekben. (Éber, ML, MJ-NMF, RI-NM ú. k., Telepy Katalin: Iványi-Grünwald Béla)Magyar festők és grafikusok adattára
1882-1884 között a budapesti Mintarajziskolában Székely Bertalan és Lotz Károly tanítványa volt. 1886-ban a müncheni Akadémián Hackl-nál, majd Párizsban a Julian-akadémián tanult. Erősen hatott reá Bastien Lepage és Dagnan-Bouveret művészete. Később visszatért Münchenbe és Hollósy köréhez kapcsolódott. A 90-es években készült művein a Bastien-Lepage-i, naturalisztikus tendenciái tükröződnek (Hadúr kardja, 1890. MNG; Áhitat 1981, MNG). 1896-1909 közötti nagybányai korszakában a művésztelep Ferencz Károly által meghatározott, plein-air törekvésű ágához kapcsolódott. 1902-ben alakuló Nagybányai Szabad Festőiskola egyik vezető tanára. Az itteni évek korszakának csúcspontját jelenti (Ruhaszárítás, 1902. MNG, Háromkirályok, 1903). 1904-ben elnyerte a Fraknói-djíat. 1911-től 1918-ig a kecskeméti művésztelep vezetője volt. 1915 körül lezárult stilizáló, dekoratív kecskeméti korszaka. Alföldi tájképein ismét a realisztikus megközelítés felé fordult (Gémeskút, 1924). Később a Balaton vidékén eleinte barokkosan mozgalmas, majd egyszerűségre törekvő, valósághű képet festett. Későbbi éveiben egyre gyengébb kvalitású csöndéletei és cigánytémájú képei jelentek meg. 1913-ban a Tavasz ébredése c. festménye a Műcsarnok kis aranyérmét, 1915-ben a Toilette c. műve állami aranyérmet, 1930-ban a Cigányok c. képe a barcelonai világkiállítás nagy aranyérmét nyerte. A Művészház elnöke, a Szentendrei Festők Társaságának elnöke, a MIÉNK és a Szinyei Társaság tagja volt. - Irod.: Lázár Béla: Iványi Grünwald Béla. Bp. 1921.; Réti István: A nagybányai művésztelep.

Festő, grafikus. Művészeti tanulmányait a budapesti Mintarajziskolában kezdte Székely Bertalan és Lotz Károly irányításával. Ezt követően egy évig Hackl tanítványa volt a müncheni Képzőművészeti Akadémián. Párizsban a Julian Akadémián Fleury és Bouguereau korrigált neki, de sokkal erősebben hatott rá Bastien Lepage és Dagnan Bouveret művészete. Itt ismerkedett meg Ferenczy Károllyal. 1892-ben Párizsból visszatért Münchenbe és műtermet bérelt. Több évet töltött Münchenbe és sűrűn küldte alkotásait a bp. -i Műcsarnok kiállításaira, melyen először 1889-ben szerepelt "Esti szürkület" c. tájképével. Ugyanitt állította ki 1890-ben "Isten kardja", 1892-ben a "Pásztoroknak megjelenő angyal" című képeit is. Az utóbbival elnyerte a Műbarátok Körének 1000 forintos ösztöndíját. 1894-ben nagy feltűnést keltett a "Nihilisták sorsot húznak" c. nagyméretű kompozíciójával. Münchenben megismerkedett Hollósy-val és azokkal a fiatal művészekkel, akikből utólag a nagybányai művészcsoport magja alakult. A millenniumra megfestette "Tatárjárás után" című nagyméretű történelmi művét. 1896-ban ő is Nagybányára ment. Egyik alapítója lett a művésztelepnek, s egyik népszerű tanára a festőiskolának. Tizennégy évig rendszeresen visszatért Nagybányára, és egymás után festette azokat a műveit, amelyekkel hírnevét megalapozta: Holdfelkelte és Isten kardja (1899), Völgyben (1900), Bércek közt (1901), Itatás (1902), Tavaszi kirándulás (1903), Fehér szoba (1904). 1904-ben megkapta a Franknói-díjat és Rómába költözött.

Stílusának minden változásán át hűséges kísérője volt eredendően komponáló tehetsége és elragadó színfantáziája. 1930-ban a barcelónai világkiállításon nagy aranyérmet nyert. Életének utolsó szakaszában műveinek minősége mindjobban hanyatlott. Impresszionisztikus, erőteljes koloritú festészete a műkereskedői szint mezsgyéjére szorult. Művei helyet kaptak a Magyar Nemzeti Galériában, számos magyarországi és külhoni múzeumban, köz- és magánygyűjteményben. (Éber, ML)Művészeti lexikon I-IV.
Festő, a nagybányai művésztelep alapító tagja. Életműve három nagy periódusra oszlik: 1889-től 1909-ig a nagybányai művésztelep jellegzetes vonásai, ezután stilizáló törekvések figyelhetők meg festményein, majd a húszas évek után az alföldi festők hatását magába ötvöző impresszionista. A Mintarajziskolában Székely Bertalan növendéke volt, 1886-ban Münchenben a Hollósy-körhöz kapcsolódott, 1887-ben Párizsban a Julian Akadémián tanult. 1889-től szerepelt kiállításokon. 1890-ben festette Isten kardja c. kompozícióját, a következő évben pedig Ave Mária c. képét, amelyek a Basten Lepage-i finom naturalizmus szellemében fogantak. 1892-ben Ferenczy Károly társaságában visszatért Münchenbe, ahol ismét Hollósy köréhez csatlakozott. 1893-ban az orosz peredvizsnyikek művészetéhez közel álló nagyszabású zsánerképet festett (Nihilisták sorsot húznak). 1894-ben Egyiptomban járt (Szentcsalád). A millenniumi kiállításra készült hatalmas képe a Tatárjárás után. 1896-tól Nagybányán dolgozott. Itt festett képein a plein air problémáját pendítette meg, művészetére főként Ferenczy Károly hatott. Képei közül kiemelkedik a Holdfelkelte (1896), a szabad térben kosztümös figurákat jelenítő Bércek közt (1901), a derűs hangvételével, ízes festőiségével a legszebb magyar tájképek közé tartozó Itatás (1902) és a Tavaszi kirándulás (1903). Ez utóbbi két kép jellemzi leginkább e periódus plein air törekvését. 1903-tól 1905-ig napfényes, derűs képek sorát alkotta, melyek között a legnagyobb szabású az 1903-as keletű Három királyok. 1904 őszén elnyerte a Fraknói-féle római ösztöndíjat. 1907-től kezdve a Párizsban járt fiatalok, az ún. "neosok" hatására elfordult a nagybányai szigorú természetelvűségtől, és a MIÉNK 1909-i kiállításán már nagyszabású dekoratív képpel szerepelt (Révai Mór villájába készített Vendégség v. Tavasz c. kompozíció). Csakhamar el is távozott Nagybányáról, Kecskemétre költözött, ahol monumentális dekoratív feladatokkal foglalkozott, és vezette a kecskeméti művésztelepet. 1920 után Munkácsy és Paál László tradíciójához kapcsolódó tájakat festett, de festményeinek minősége mindjobban hanyatlott, s impresszionisztikus stílű, erőteljes koloritú festészete a műkereskedői szint mezsgyéjére szorult. - Irod. Lázár B.: I. G. Bp., 1921; I. G. B. Tizenkilenc kép (A művész önéletrajzával). Gyoma, 1952; Réti I.: A nagybányai művésztelep. Bp., 1954.
Németh LajosMűvészeti lexikon I-II.
Tanulmányait Budapesten, Münchenben és Párisban végezte s 1896-ban Nagybányán telepedett le, mint az odavaló művésztelep egyik alapítója, utóbb tanára is. Itt festette erőteljes színű, hangulatos, naturalista felfogású képeit (est a karámban, Itatás, Ruhaszárítás), amelyek stílusa egy római út után kötöttebbé lett. Miután a kecskeméti művésztelepre költözött, hol annak egy ideig vezetője volt, inkább a formát, a dekoratív értéket hangsúlyozó s a renaissance értelmében felépített kompozíciójú, többnyire nagyméretű aktos képeket festett. Ezek után Dunántól, főképp a Balaton környékén működött, s itt ezt a kötöttséget újra festőiség váltotta fel, mélyre hangolt, kevés színű, egyszerű előadású, de annál tősgyökeresebb, magyaros tájképek (parasztudvarok, faluvége, boglyák, szérűk stb. ) egész során. Fejlődésének minden állomásán nagy sikereket ért el itthon és a külföldön s vezető mestereink sorába jutott. Illusztrációkat is rajzolt (Kiss József verseihez). - Irodalom: Lázár Béla (Az Ernst-Múzeum Művészkönyvei)

          Less Known Facts About Google Ranking   
Many of affiliate marketers use the Google PageRank as a reliable source to measure the popularity of the website. But many of them, in fact, many of internet users do not know how Google PageRank is actually evolved and what the notion behind it is. Ten years ago, the ranking was not the same as that of today, they were quite predictable. The search algorithm was more manually-driven than programmatically and so the search results from Google often showed the same websites over longer period of time. As a result of this, users were dependent on Google more as a site browsing tool. This is one of the facts about Google PageRanking.



However, the conditions have changed a lot now. Google has developed its services in more modern way where there is no manual dependency. All the things are taken care by algorithms. Now you do not experience the same search results for similar terms for even two days. You can see totally search results for same keywords. This really puts a question in front of all Google PageRank users, that is it really useful when Google shows very dynamic Page Ranks for the same website for same keywords. This proves that Page Rank is not merely a number but a result of complicated algorithms applied. To generate Page Rank, Google takes into account following factors- websites Meta tags, titles, keywords density, description tags, links coming from other websites, the Page Ranks of the referring websites. So you can now imagine how complex is the Page Rank generation algorithm. And this is the second of some facts about Google page ranking.



There is a variation in the Google suggestions for search query phrases. This way, the search queries data entered by people can also be under question. You cannot really depend on it. Sometimes, Google search gives totally different and strange results on the referral data of your website. Some people also reported a wide variation or sudden rise in the Google page crawling activity and after such activity, their Google traffic data was significantly decreased and hence lowering their page ranks.



For some webmasters, Google PageRank is not the only parameter to evaluate the popularity of the website.

Magyar festők és grafikusok életrajzi lexikona I-II.
Festő. Tanulmányait Lápossy-Hegedűs Géza irányításával kezdte. A budapesti Képzőművészeti Főiskolán Glatz Oszkár és Karlovszky Bertalan tanítványa volt. 1935-ben diplomázott. 1933-ban a főiskola jubileumi tárlatán a "Nagymamám" című alkotásával elnyerte a Balló-díjat. 1935-1936-ban római ösztöndíjas volt, és a Collegium Hungaricum-ban töltött nyolc hónapot. Szorgalmasan dolgozott, közben tanulmányokat folytatott az Accademia delle Belle Arti freskó-osztályán, Ferazzi irányítása mellett. Az itt készült "Maria Surigia" című képmását 1936-ban a Collegium Hungaricum kiállításán mutatta be, amelyet az olasz állam vásárolt meg. A "Római szobrásznő" című képe 1937-ben elnyerte a Jellinek-díjat. Az alkotás jelenleg a Magyar Nemzeti Galéria tulajdona. Számos kelet- és nyugat-európai országban járt tanulmányúton. 1931-től szerepelt hazai és külföldi bemutatókon. Egyéni kiállításai voltak Szegeden (1942, 1958, 1963, 1972), az Ernst Múzeumban (1959), Olaszországban (1961), Jugoszláviában (1968). Nagyobb anyaggal szerepelt a szegedi művészek 1967-es Magyar Nemzeti Galéria-béli kiállításán. 1932-ben Balló-díjat, 1937-ben Fényes Adolf-díjat kapott, 1972-ben Szeged város alkotói-díját, 1979-ben a Szegedi Nyári Tárlat díját nyerte el. Éveken keresztül (tizenöt év megszakítással) a szegedi Tanárképző Főiskola rajzi tanszékének vezetőjeként működött. Korábban protréfestőként volt ismeretes. Karlovszky mellett a rajz kultuszára és a csendéleti formalátásra kapott indíttatásokat, később Glatz hatott rá, így a rajzos analizálás helyett a művész a szélesebb festőiségre tért át. A naturalizmussal elvi szakítást jelentő harmadik stílusát a novocento jelképes, színesen dekoratív szellemében alakította ki. Jeles grafikus volt. Több irodalmi művet illusztrált. Monumentális feladatokkal is foglalkozott (freskók a Petőfi-telepi templomban stb. ). 1957-ben a városban végzett művészi tevékenysége elismerésül a szegedi Collegium Artium Képzőművészeti tagozata vezetőjévé választotta. Műveinek jelentős részét a szegedi Móra F. Múzeum őrzi. (PZ-SzMF, D. E.: Műv. 1927/6, ML, Sz. Z.: Műv. 1973/1, Műv. 1982/10. D. F.

Festő, a szegedi Pedagógiai Főiskola tanára. A Képzőművészeti Főiskolán Karlovszky Bertalan és Glatz Oszkár tanítványa volt. 1935-36-ban Olaszo. -ban folytatta tanulmányait, majd több külföldi utat tett. Szegedi gyűjt. kiállításai után 1959-ben az Ernst Múzeumban is bemutatta anyagát. Korábban portréfestőként volt ismert, jelenleg a szürrealizmussal rokon szellemben fest. Monumentális feladatokkal is foglalkozik (freskók a Petőfi-telepi templomban stb. ). Művész életrajzok kortárs magyar képzőművészek
Festő, grafikus.
1935-ben fejezte be főiskolai tanulmányait Karlovszky Bertalan és Glatz Oszkár növendékeként. 1935-1936-ban római ösztöndíjas. Számos kelet- és nyugat-európai országban megfordult tanulmányúton. Egyéni kiállításai voltak Szegeden (1943, 1958, 1936, 1938, 1972), az Ernst Múzeumban (1959) és Dunaújvárosban (1977), illetve külföldön Olaszországban (1961) és Jugoszáviában (1968). Hosszabb időt töltött a szegedi tanárképző főiskola rajztanszékének élén. Díja: Balló-díj (1933), Jellinek és Fényes Adolf-díj (1937), Szeged város alkotói díja (1972), a Szegedi Nyári Tárlat díja (1979). Emlékkiállítást 1982-ben a szegedi Móra Ferenc Múzeum Képtárban és a Nemzeti Galériában rendezték meg. - Gazdag arculatú festményei, monotypiái és tollrajzai híven tükrözték állandó megújulási vágyát, amelynek hajtóereje az intellektus és az intuició feszültségéből eredt. A művészet figuratív és absztrakt törekvései egyként érdekelték; elvont műveiben a szürrealizmus módszereivel közelítette meg napjaink jelenségeit; a kultúrhistória és a mitológiai eseményeit. Kortárs magyar művészeti lexikon I-III.
Festő, grafikus, művészeti író
1930-35: MKF, mesterei: Karlovszky Bertalan, Glatz Oszkár. 1932, 1933: Balló-díj; 1937: Jellinek-díj; Fényes Adolf-díj. Képzőművészeti tanulmányaival párhuzamosan két évig jogot hallgatott az ELTE jogi karán. 1935-ben ösztöndíjat nyert: Rómában, a Coll. Hung. -ban töltött nyolc hónapot. Néhány vallási témájú szegedi freskója korareneszánsz mesterek hatását mutatja, de szorosan nem kapcsolódott a Római Iskola törekvéseihez. Szakma sikereit pályája kezdetén bravúros portréművészetével vívta ki, és a műfaj szeretete egész munkásságát végigkísérte. Tanulmányutak: 1937: Párizs, 1939: Szicília. 1947-ben felkérésre megszervezte és elindította a szegedi TF Rajz- és Művészettörténet Tanszékének munkáját, s ekkortól megbízott tanszékvezetőként tevékenykedett itt 1957-ig, amikor politikai okok miatt állásából felmentették és csak 1972-ben helyezték vissza. Időközben festői pályája töretlenül folytatódott. Vinkler László pedagógiai tevékenységéből adódóan kísérletező hajlamú művész volt, szellemi rokona az 1945-47-ig hivatalosan, majd felosztása után laza csoportként működő Európai Iskolának, amely a Szentendrei Iskola hagyományait és az európai haladó művészi formákat, a kubizmust, szürrealizmust, non-figuráicót preferálta. A 60-as években már együtt tartott a korszak egyetemes haladó irányázatával (absztrakt expresszionizmus, tasizmus). Az alkalmazott művészeti stílusok mindig az adott alkotói problémafelvetéséhez igazodtak, filozófiai mélységű gondolataikkal és igényességükkel magas színvonalat képviseltek. Az analitikus kubizmus a háború pusztításának kifejezője, a szürrelaizmus mitológiai példázatának hordozója, a tasizmus a belső világának kivetülése volt. Természetelvű ábrázolásokon keresztül jutott el azokhoz a szürrealisztikus művészeti elvekhez, amelyeknek nagyszerű példái azok az automatikus, a vonal erejét hangsúlyozó figurális tusrajzok, amelyekkel a modern magyar grafika a korszak törekvéseihez kapcsolódott. (Szalay Lajos, Kondor Béla, Martyn Ferenc. ) Ezekkel párhuzamosan kezdett tasiszta kísérletei nyomán jutott el művészi törekvéseinek csúcspontjára. A csorgatásos technikával véletlenszerűen keletkezett fekete-fehér alap-kompozíciókat gesztusokkal, felismerhető természeti formákat idéző festék-foltokkal tette elvenné. Foglalkoztatta a XX. századi művész és a képzőművészet létjogosultságának kérdése, helye a nemzeti és az egyetemes kultúra egészében. Írásaiban saját maga ideológusaként sajátos terminológia-alkotással is megpróbálkozott (Szürreafaelllista kiáltvány, Szürcézanneizmus, 1966). 1957-ben a városban végzett művészi munkája elismeréséül a szegedi Collegium Artium Képzőművészeti tagozata vezetőjévé választotta. 1972-ben az Oktatásügy Kiváló Dolgozója. A szegedi patrióta festő jelentőségét adja, hogy önálló kisérletezések eredményeképpen jutott el az avantgárd képzőművészet második hulámának törekvéseihez. Művészetének meghatározó eleme a múlttal való kontiniutáskeresés is, a görög mitolgóia jelképrendszerének felhasználása és reneszánsz parafrázisainak (pl.: Tiziano: Vénusz) sorozata. Vinkler László élete utolsó évtizedében, részben olaszországi és görögországi utazásainak hatására visszatért a természetelvű ábrázolásokhoz is. Műveinek jelentős részét a szegedi Móra Ferenc M. őrzi.

          On-Page SEO - How to Improve Search Engine Ranking?   
SEO is a buzzword in the world of Internet. Everyone is trying to master the skill and get the first page position on the search engine results. Many websites and article directories contain tons of pages stating the correct ways of achieving search engine optimization. They guarantee that following their tips or guidelines will surely make your site appear in first page of Google search. However, not all these pages contain valid and usable information and it is not a matter of just one day or few hours to get into the best position in search results. It surely requires continuous efforts for some consecutive days to reach the best position or we can say desired position.

Here are few things, again we don’t claim, these are ALL the things, required for better SEO. These surely work as far as our experience is concerned. Paying attention to following things will surely help to improve the search engine ranking for your website.

Content - Content is the main thing in any website. We can easily say that great and original content is everything required for SEO. It is like a property with a very high value. The more good is your content, the better are the possibilities for good page ranks in search engine results. You must put new and fresh content after a regular interval on your website. Latest updates in content are also required for better SEO.

Keywords – As stated in above paragraph, content is the main requirement for SEO. But whole content can not be used for optimization, you must select some important words or phrases which best describe your product or service you are offering from your website. Those important words are also called as keywords. Finding these keywords in the written content or conversely, developing content around keywords is more important task. These keywords can be put in “bold” case so that they can be prominently seen on the page by the search engine.

Density of Keywords – Number of keywords appearing on a single page is also one of the factors that is considered by search engine. This is because, if somebody has written only keywords in bold case hundred times, then the content is surely useless and adds no value. So three to four keywords per page is considered as ideal density by the content developers as well as search engines too.

Magyar festők és grafikusok életrajzi lexikona I-II.
Festő. Tanulmányait Lápossy-Hegedűs Géza irányításával kezdte. A budapesti Képzőművészeti Főiskolán Glatz Oszkár és Karlovszky Bertalan tanítványa volt. 1935-ben diplomázott. 1933-ban a főiskola jubileumi tárlatán a "Nagymamám" című alkotásával elnyerte a Balló-díjat. 1935-1936-ban római ösztöndíjas volt, és a Collegium Hungaricum-ban töltött nyolc hónapot. Szorgalmasan dolgozott, közben tanulmányokat folytatott az Accademia delle Belle Arti freskó-osztályán, Ferazzi irányítása mellett. Az itt készült "Maria Surigia" című képmását 1936-ban a Collegium Hungaricum kiállításán mutatta be, amelyet az olasz állam vásárolt meg. A "Római szobrásznő" című képe 1937-ben elnyerte a Jellinek-díjat. Az alkotás jelenleg a Magyar Nemzeti Galéria tulajdona. Számos kelet- és nyugat-európai országban járt tanulmányúton. 1931-től szerepelt hazai és külföldi bemutatókon. Egyéni kiállításai voltak Szegeden (1942, 1958, 1963, 1972), az Ernst Múzeumban (1959), Olaszországban (1961), Jugoszláviában (1968). Nagyobb anyaggal szerepelt a szegedi művészek 1967-es Magyar Nemzeti Galéria-béli kiállításán. 1932-ben Balló-díjat, 1937-ben Fényes Adolf-díjat kapott, 1972-ben Szeged város alkotói-díját, 1979-ben a Szegedi Nyári Tárlat díját nyerte el. Éveken keresztül (tizenöt év megszakítással) a szegedi Tanárképző Főiskola rajzi tanszékének vezetőjeként működött. Korábban protréfestőként volt ismeretes. Karlovszky mellett a rajz kultuszára és a csendéleti formalátásra kapott indíttatásokat, később Glatz hatott rá, így a rajzos analizálás helyett a művész a szélesebb festőiségre tért át. A naturalizmussal elvi szakítást jelentő harmadik stílusát a novocento jelképes, színesen dekoratív szellemében alakította ki. Jeles grafikus volt. Több irodalmi művet illusztrált. Monumentális feladatokkal is foglalkozott (freskók a Petőfi-telepi templomban stb. ). 1957-ben a városban végzett művészi tevékenysége elismerésül a szegedi Collegium Artium Képzőművészeti tagozata vezetőjévé választotta. Műveinek jelentős részét a szegedi Móra F. Múzeum őrzi. (PZ-SzMF, D. E.: Műv. 1927/6, ML, Sz. Z.: Műv. 1973/1, Műv. 1982/10. D. F.

1935-ben fejezte be főiskolai tanulmányait Karlovszky Bertalan és Glatz Oszkár növendékeként. 1935-1936-ban római ösztöndíjas. Számos kelet- és nyugat-európai országban megfordult tanulmányúton. Egyéni kiállításai voltak Szegeden (1943, 1958, 1936, 1938, 1972), az Ernst Múzeumban (1959) és Dunaújvárosban (1977), illetve külföldön Olaszországban (1961) és Jugoszáviában (1968). Hosszabb időt töltött a szegedi tanárképző főiskola rajztanszékének élén. Díja: Balló-díj (1933), Jellinek és Fényes Adolf-díj (1937), Szeged város alkotói díja (1972), a Szegedi Nyári Tárlat díja (1979). Emlékkiállítást 1982-ben a szegedi Móra Ferenc Múzeum Képtárban és a Nemzeti Galériában rendezték meg. - Gazdag arculatú festményei, monotypiái és tollrajzai híven tükrözték állandó megújulási vágyát, amelynek hajtóereje az intellektus és az intuició feszültségéből eredt. A művészet figuratív és absztrakt törekvései egyként érdekelték; elvont műveiben a szürrealizmus módszereivel közelítette meg napjaink jelenségeit; a kultúrhistória és a mitológiai eseményeit. Kortárs magyar művészeti lexikon I-III.
Festő, grafikus, művészeti író
1930-35: MKF, mesterei: Karlovszky Bertalan, Glatz Oszkár. 1932, 1933: Balló-díj; 1937: Jellinek-díj; Fényes Adolf-díj. Képzőművészeti tanulmányaival párhuzamosan két évig jogot hallgatott az ELTE jogi karán. 1935-ben ösztöndíjat nyert: Rómában, a Coll. Hung. -ban töltött nyolc hónapot. Néhány vallási témájú szegedi freskója korareneszánsz mesterek hatását mutatja, de szorosan nem kapcsolódott a Római Iskola törekvéseihez. Szakma sikereit pályája kezdetén bravúros portréművészetével vívta ki, és a műfaj szeretete egész munkásságát végigkísérte. Tanulmányutak: 1937: Párizs, 1939: Szicília. 1947-ben felkérésre megszervezte és elindította a szegedi TF Rajz- és Művészettörténet Tanszékének munkáját, s ekkortól megbízott tanszékvezetőként tevékenykedett itt 1957-ig, amikor politikai okok miatt állásából felmentették és csak 1972-ben helyezték vissza. Időközben festői pályája töretlenül folytatódott. Vinkler László pedagógiai tevékenységéből adódóan kísérletező hajlamú művész volt, szellemi rokona az 1945-47-ig hivatalosan, majd felosztása után laza csoportként működő Európai Iskolának, amely a Szentendrei Iskola hagyományait és az európai haladó művészi formákat, a kubizmust, szürrealizmust, non-figuráicót preferálta. A 60-as években már együtt tartott a korszak egyetemes haladó irányázatával (absztrakt expresszionizmus, tasizmus). Az alkalmazott művészeti stílusok mindig az adott alkotói problémafelvetéséhez igazodtak, filozófiai mélységű gondolataikkal és igényességükkel magas színvonalat képviseltek. Az analitikus kubizmus a háború pusztításának kifejezője, a szürrelaizmus mitológiai példázatának hordozója, a tasizmus a belső világának kivetülése volt. Természetelvű ábrázolásokon keresztül jutott el azokhoz a szürrealisztikus művészeti elvekhez, amelyeknek nagyszerű példái azok az automatikus, a vonal erejét hangsúlyozó figurális tusrajzok, amelyekkel a modern magyar grafika a korszak törekvéseihez kapcsolódott. (Szalay Lajos, Kondor Béla, Martyn Ferenc. ) Ezekkel párhuzamosan kezdett tasiszta kísérletei nyomán jutott el művészi törekvéseinek csúcspontjára. A csorgatásos technikával véletlenszerűen keletkezett fekete-fehér alap-kompozíciókat gesztusokkal, felismerhető természeti formákat idéző festék-foltokkal tette elvenné. Foglalkoztatta a XX. századi művész és a képzőművészet létjogosultságának kérdése, helye a nemzeti és az egyetemes kultúra egészében. Írásaiban saját maga ideológusaként sajátos terminológia-alkotással is megpróbálkozott (Szürreafaelllista kiáltvány, Szürcézanneizmus, 1966). 1957-ben a városban végzett művészi munkája elismeréséül a szegedi Collegium Artium Képzőművészeti tagozata vezetőjévé választotta. 1972-ben az Oktatásügy Kiváló Dolgozója. A szegedi patrióta festő jelentőségét adja, hogy önálló kisérletezések eredményeképpen jutott el az avantgárd képzőművészet második hulámának törekvéseihez. Művészetének meghatározó eleme a múlttal való kontiniutáskeresés is, a görög mitolgóia jelképrendszerének felhasználása és reneszánsz parafrázisainak (pl.: Tiziano: Vénusz) sorozata. Vinkler László élete utolsó évtizedében, részben olaszországi és görögországi utazásainak hatására visszatért a természetelvű ábrázolásokhoz is. Műveinek jelentős részét a szegedi Móra Ferenc M. őrzi.

Festő. Tanulmányait Lápossy-Hegedűs Géza irányításával kezdte. A budapesti Képzőművészeti Főiskolán Glatz Oszkár és Karlovszky Bertalan tanítványa volt. 1935-ben diplomázott. 1933-ban a főiskola jubileumi tárlatán a "Nagymamám" című alkotásával elnyerte a Balló-díjat. 1935-1936-ban római ösztöndíjas volt, és a Collegium Hungaricum-ban töltött nyolc hónapot. Szorgalmasan dolgozott, közben tanulmányokat folytatott az Accademia delle Belle Arti freskó-osztályán, Ferazzi irányítása mellett. Az itt készült "Maria Surigia" című képmását 1936-ban a Collegium Hungaricum kiállításán mutatta be, amelyet az olasz állam vásárolt meg. A "Római szobrásznő" című képe 1937-ben elnyerte a Jellinek-díjat. Az alkotás jelenleg a Magyar Nemzeti Galéria tulajdona. Számos kelet- és nyugat-európai országban járt tanulmányúton. 1931-től szerepelt hazai és külföldi bemutatókon. Egyéni kiállításai voltak Szegeden (1942, 1958, 1963, 1972), az Ernst Múzeumban (1959), Olaszországban (1961), Jugoszláviában (1968). Nagyobb anyaggal szerepelt a szegedi művészek 1967-es Magyar Nemzeti Galéria-béli kiállításán. 1932-ben Balló-díjat, 1937-ben Fényes Adolf-díjat kapott, 1972-ben Szeged város alkotói-díját, 1979-ben a Szegedi Nyári Tárlat díját nyerte el. Éveken keresztül (tizenöt év megszakítással) a szegedi Tanárképző Főiskola rajzi tanszékének vezetőjeként működött. Korábban protréfestőként volt ismeretes. Karlovszky mellett a rajz kultuszára és a csendéleti formalátásra kapott indíttatásokat, később Glatz hatott rá, így a rajzos analizálás helyett a művész a szélesebb festőiségre tért át. A naturalizmussal elvi szakítást jelentő harmadik stílusát a novocento jelképes, színesen dekoratív szellemében alakította ki. Jeles grafikus volt. Több irodalmi művet illusztrált. Monumentális feladatokkal is foglalkozott (freskók a Petőfi-telepi templomban stb. ). 1957-ben a városban végzett művészi tevékenysége elismerésül a szegedi Collegium Artium Képzőművészeti tagozata vezetőjévé választotta.

Karlovszky mellett a rajz kultuszára és a csendéleti formalátásra kapott indíttatásokat, később Glatz Oszkár hatott rá és a rajzos analizálás helyett a szélesebb festőiségre tért át. A naturalizmussal elvi szakítást jelentő harmadik stílusát a novocento jelképes, színesen dekoratív szellemében alakította ki. Jeles grafikus volt. Számos irodalmi művet illusztrált. Monumentális feladatokkal is foglalkozott. (freskók a Petőfi-telepi templomban, stb). (PZ-SzMF, ML, Sz. Z.: Műv. -1982/10)Magyar festők és grafikusok adattára
Művészeti tanulmányait Lápossy-Hegedűs Géza irányításával kezdte, majd a Képzőművészeti Főiskolán Karlovszky Bertalan és Glatz Oszkár növendékeként fejezte be 1935-ben. 1931 óta kiállító művész. 1933-ban a főiskola jubileumi kiállításán a Nagymamám c. festményével elnyerte a Balló-díjat. A diploma megszerzését követően 1935-1936-ban római ösztöndíjas. Az itt készült Maria Surigia c. portréját az olasz állam megvásárolta. A Római szobrásznő c. képe 1937-ben elnyerte a Jellinek-díjat, s amelyet ma az MNG őriz. Számos kelet- és nyugat-európai országban megfordult tanulmányúton. Egyéni kiállításai voltak Szegeden (1942, 1958, 1963, 1968, 1972), az Ernst Múzeumban (1959) és Dunaújvárosban (1977), illetve külföldön Olaszországban (1961) és Jugoszláviában (1968). Nagyobb anyaggal szerepelt a szegedi művészek 1967-ben MNG-beli bemutatóján. 1972-ben elnyerte Szeged város alkotói díját és 1979-ben a Szegedi Nyári Tárlat díját. Hosszabb időt töltött a Szegedi Tanárképző Főiskola rajztanszékének élén. Emlékkiállítását 1982-ben a szegedi Móra Ferenc Képtárban és a MNG-ban rendezték meg.

Szegedi gyűjt. kiállításai után 1959-ben az Ernst Múzeumban is bemutatta anyagát. Korábban portréfestőként volt ismert, jelenleg a szürrealizmussal rokon szellemben fest.

Festő, grafikus.
1935-ben fejezte be főiskolai tanulmányait Karlovszky Bertalan és Glatz Oszkár növendékeként. 1935-1936-ban római ösztöndíjas. Számos kelet- és nyugat-európai országban megfordult tanulmányúton. Egyéni kiállításai voltak Szegeden (1943, 1958, 1936, 1938, 1972), az Ernst Múzeumban (1959) és Dunaújvárosban (1977), illetve külföldön Olaszországban (1961) és Jugoszáviában (1968). Hosszabb időt töltött a szegedi tanárképző főiskola rajztanszékének élén. Díja: Balló-díj (1933), Jellinek és Fényes Adolf-díj (1937), Szeged város alkotói díja (1972), a Szegedi Nyári Tárlat díja (1979). Emlékkiállítást 1982-ben a szegedi Móra Ferenc Múzeum Képtárban és a Nemzeti Galériában rendezték meg. - Gazdag arculatú festményei, monotypiái és tollrajzai híven tükrözték állandó megújulási vágyát, amelynek hajtóereje az intellektus és az intuició feszültségéből eredt. A művészet figuratív és absztrakt törekvései egyként érdekelték; elvont műveiben a szürrealizmus módszereivel közelítette meg napjaink jelenségeit; a kultúrhistória és a mitológiai eseményeit. Kortárs magyar művészeti lexikon I-III.
Festő, grafikus, művészeti író
1930-35: MKF, mesterei: Karlovszky Bertalan, Glatz Oszkár. 1932, 1933: Balló-díj; 1937: Jellinek-díj; Fényes Adolf-díj. Képzőművészeti tanulmányaival párhuzamosan két évig jogot hallgatott az ELTE jogi karán. 1935-ben ösztöndíjat nyert: Rómában, a Coll. Hung. -ban töltött nyolc hónapot. Néhány vallási témájú szegedi freskója korareneszánsz mesterek hatását mutatja, de szorosan nem kapcsolódott a Római Iskola törekvéseihez. Szakma sikereit pályája kezdetén bravúros portréművészetével vívta ki, és a műfaj szeretete egész munkásságát végigkísérte. Tanulmányutak: 1937: Párizs, 1939: Szicília. 1947-ben felkérésre megszervezte és elindította a szegedi TF Rajz- és Művészettörténet Tanszékének munkáját, s ekkortól megbízott tanszékvezetőként tevékenykedett itt 1957-ig, amikor politikai okok miatt állásából felmentették és csak 1972-ben helyezték vissza. Időközben festői pályája töretlenül folytatódott. Vinkler László pedagógiai tevékenységéből adódóan kísérletező hajlamú művész volt, szellemi rokona az 1945-47-ig hivatalosan, majd felosztása után laza csoportként működő Európai Iskolának, amely a Szentendrei Iskola hagyományait és az európai haladó művészi formákat, a kubizmust, szürrealizmust, non-figuráicót preferálta. A 60-as években már együtt tartott a korszak egyetemes haladó irányázatával (absztrakt expresszionizmus, tasizmus). Az alkalmazott művészeti stílusok mindig az adott alkotói problémafelvetéséhez igazodtak, filozófiai mélységű gondolataikkal és igényességükkel magas színvonalat képviseltek. Az analitikus kubizmus a háború pusztításának kifejezője, a szürrelaizmus mitológiai példázatának hordozója, a tasizmus a belső világának kivetülése volt. Természetelvű ábrázolásokon keresztül jutott el azokhoz a szürrealisztikus művészeti elvekhez, amelyeknek nagyszerű példái azok az automatikus, a vonal erejét hangsúlyozó figurális tusrajzok, amelyekkel a modern magyar grafika a korszak törekvéseihez kapcsolódott. (Szalay Lajos, Kondor Béla, Martyn Ferenc. ) Ezekkel párhuzamosan kezdett tasiszta kísérletei nyomán jutott el művészi törekvéseinek csúcspontjára. A csorgatásos technikával véletlenszerűen keletkezett fekete-fehér alap-kompozíciókat gesztusokkal, felismerhető természeti formákat idéző festék-foltokkal tette elvenné. Foglalkoztatta a XX. századi művész és a képzőművészet létjogosultságának kérdése, helye a nemzeti és az egyetemes kultúra egészében. Írásaiban saját maga ideológusaként sajátos terminológia-alkotással is megpróbálkozott (Szürreafaelllista kiáltvány, Szürcézanneizmus, 1966). 1957-ben a városban végzett művészi munkája elismeréséül a szegedi Collegium Artium Képzőművészeti tagozata vezetőjévé választotta. 1972-ben az Oktatásügy Kiváló Dolgozója. A szegedi patrióta festő jelentőségét adja, hogy önálló kisérletezések eredményeképpen jutott el az avantgárd képzőművészet második hulámának törekvéseihez. Művészetének meghatározó eleme a múlttal való kontiniutáskeresés is, a görög mitolgóia jelképrendszerének felhasználása és reneszánsz parafrázisainak (pl.: Tiziano: Vénusz) sorozata. Vinkler László élete utolsó évtizedében, részben olaszországi és görögországi utazásainak hatására visszatért a természetelvű ábrázolásokhoz is. Műveinek jelentős részét a szegedi Móra Ferenc M. őrzi.

Magyar festők és grafikusok életrajzi lexikona I-II.
Festő. Tanulmányait Lápossy-Hegedűs Géza irányításával kezdte. A budapesti Képzőművészeti Főiskolán Glatz Oszkár és Karlovszky Bertalan tanítványa volt. 1935-ben diplomázott. 1933-ban a főiskola jubileumi tárlatán a "Nagymamám" című alkotásával elnyerte a Balló-díjat. 1935-1936-ban római ösztöndíjas volt, és a Collegium Hungaricum-ban töltött nyolc hónapot. Szorgalmasan dolgozott, közben tanulmányokat folytatott az Accademia delle Belle Arti freskó-osztályán, Ferazzi irányítása mellett. Az itt készült "Maria Surigia" című képmását 1936-ban a Collegium Hungaricum kiállításán mutatta be, amelyet az olasz állam vásárolt meg. A "Római szobrásznő" című képe 1937-ben elnyerte a Jellinek-díjat. Az alkotás jelenleg a Magyar Nemzeti Galéria tulajdona. Számos kelet- és nyugat-európai országban járt tanulmányúton. 1931-től szerepelt hazai és külföldi bemutatókon. Egyéni kiállításai voltak Szegeden (1942, 1958, 1963, 1972), az Ernst Múzeumban (1959), Olaszországban (1961), Jugoszláviában (1968). Nagyobb anyaggal szerepelt a szegedi művészek 1967-es Magyar Nemzeti Galéria-béli kiállításán. 1932-ben Balló-díjat, 1937-ben Fényes Adolf-díjat kapott, 1972-ben Szeged város alkotói-díját, 1979-ben a Szegedi Nyári Tárlat díját nyerte el. Éveken keresztül (tizenöt év megszakítással) a szegedi Tanárképző Főiskola rajzi tanszékének vezetőjeként működött. Korábban protréfestőként volt ismeretes. Karlovszky mellett a rajz kultuszára és a csendéleti formalátásra kapott indíttatásokat, később Glatz hatott rá, így a rajzos analizálás helyett a művész a szélesebb festőiségre tért át. A naturalizmussal elvi szakítást jelentő harmadik stílusát a novocento jelképes, színesen dekoratív szellemében alakította ki. Jeles grafikus volt. Több irodalmi művet illusztrált. Monumentális feladatokkal is foglalkozott (freskók a Petőfi-telepi templomban stb. ). 1957-ben a városban végzett művészi tevékenysége elismerésül a szegedi Collegium Artium Képzőművészeti tagozata vezetőjévé választotta. Műveinek jelentős részét a szegedi Móra F. Múzeum őrzi. (PZ-SzMF, D. E.: Műv. 1927/6, ML, Sz. Z.: Műv. 1973/1, Műv. 1982/10. D. F.

Festő, grafikus.
1935-ben fejezte be főiskolai tanulmányait Karlovszky Bertalan és Glatz Oszkár növendékeként. 1935-1936-ban római ösztöndíjas. Számos kelet- és nyugat-európai országban megfordult tanulmányúton. Egyéni kiállításai voltak Szegeden (1943, 1958, 1936, 1938, 1972), az Ernst Múzeumban (1959) és Dunaújvárosban (1977), illetve külföldön Olaszországban (1961) és Jugoszáviában (1968).

Festő, grafikus, művészeti író
1930-35: MKF, mesterei: Karlovszky Bertalan, Glatz Oszkár. 1932, 1933: Balló-díj; 1937: Jellinek-díj; Fényes Adolf-díj. Képzőművészeti tanulmányaival párhuzamosan két évig jogot hallgatott az ELTE jogi karán. 1935-ben ösztöndíjat nyert: Rómában, a Coll. Hung. -ban töltött nyolc hónapot. Néhány vallási témájú szegedi freskója korareneszánsz mesterek hatását mutatja, de szorosan nem kapcsolódott a Római Iskola törekvéseihez. Szakma sikereit pályája kezdetén bravúros portréművészetével vívta ki, és a műfaj szeretete egész munkásságát végigkísérte. Tanulmányutak: 1937: Párizs, 1939: Szicília. 1947-ben felkérésre megszervezte és elindította a szegedi TF Rajz- és Művészettörténet Tanszékének munkáját, s ekkortól megbízott tanszékvezetőként tevékenykedett itt 1957-ig, amikor politikai okok miatt állásából felmentették és csak 1972-ben helyezték vissza. Időközben festői pályája töretlenül folytatódott. Vinkler László pedagógiai tevékenységéből adódóan kísérletező hajlamú művész volt, szellemi rokona az 1945-47-ig hivatalosan, majd felosztása után laza csoportként működő Európai Iskolának, amely a Szentendrei Iskola hagyományait és az európai haladó művészi formákat, a kubizmust, szürrealizmust, non-figuráicót preferálta. A 60-as években már együtt tartott a korszak egyetemes haladó irányázatával (absztrakt expresszionizmus, tasizmus). Az alkalmazott művészeti stílusok mindig az adott alkotói problémafelvetéséhez igazodtak, filozófiai mélységű gondolataikkal és igényességükkel magas színvonalat képviseltek. Az analitikus kubizmus a háború pusztításának kifejezője, a szürrelaizmus mitológiai példázatának hordozója, a tasizmus a belső világának kivetülése volt. Természetelvű ábrázolásokon keresztül jutott el azokhoz a szürrealisztikus művészeti elvekhez, amelyeknek nagyszerű példái azok az automatikus, a vonal erejét hangsúlyozó figurális tusrajzok, amelyekkel a modern magyar grafika a korszak törekvéseihez kapcsolódott. (Szalay Lajos, Kondor Béla, Martyn Ferenc. ) Ezekkel párhuzamosan kezdett tasiszta kísérletei nyomán jutott el művészi törekvéseinek csúcspontjára. A csorgatásos technikával véletlenszerűen keletkezett fekete-fehér alap-kompozíciókat gesztusokkal, felismerhető természeti formákat idéző festék-foltokkal tette elvenné. Foglalkoztatta a XX. századi művész és a képzőművészet létjogosultságának kérdése, helye a nemzeti és az egyetemes kultúra egészében. Írásaiban saját maga ideológusaként sajátos terminológia-alkotással is megpróbálkozott (Szürreafaelllista kiáltvány, Szürcézanneizmus, 1966). 1957-ben a városban végzett művészi munkája elismeréséül a szegedi Collegium Artium Képzőművészeti tagozata vezetőjévé választotta. 1972-ben az Oktatásügy Kiváló Dolgozója. A szegedi patrióta festő jelentőségét adja, hogy önálló kisérletezések eredményeképpen jutott el az avantgárd képzőművészet második hulámának törekvéseihez. Művészetének meghatározó eleme a múlttal való kontiniutáskeresés is, a görög mitolgóia jelképrendszerének felhasználása és reneszánsz parafrázisainak (pl.: Tiziano: Vénusz) sorozata. Vinkler László élete utolsó évtizedében, részben olaszországi és görögországi utazásainak hatására visszatért a természetelvű ábrázolásokhoz is. Műveinek jelentős részét a szegedi Móra Ferenc M. őrzi.

Only less number of people is showing interest in the paid click services. Many reported that they are getting the required information in the organic search engine marketing only and the people are also showing interest in clicking only on the top five results that are listed in the search engine result pages.

Faith : According to the past studies people have more faith in organic search engine as compared to the pay per click advertising. Many reported that the results found in the pay per click are not relevant to the search they had made.

Visitor's Value : Value of the visitors is more in the organic search engine marketing only. Only in organic search engine marketing the visitors are given importance.

          A Guide in Article Writing: How to Make Outlines   
Making outlines if a fundamental writing skill. Outlines can be useful for anything that you write including articles, essays, and research papers. Outlining is one of the most basic and first techniques taught to young writers to help them organize their thoughts and structure their arguments. Unfortunately, although outlining is one of the first skills we learn, not all people make them while writing.

The Internet has placed a new emphasis on writing. Most websites rely on the written word to get across their messages. Writers that write clear, concise, and to the point articles get rewarded. All of these reasons reinforce the need for people to gravitate to writing better by using outlines. Yet some people still do not.

Although challenging, writing could be a very rewarding career. It is indeed funny to think that some people would choose to work at some sort of menial job rather than sit down with a pen and write. Those who do write, enjoy the freedom of being able to work wherever they choose to along with unlimited potential for creativity.

Creating outlines before immediately starting to write is a good way to gather your ideas and organize your thoughts. Having a well-prepared outline makes writing go smoothly because of the prep time you already put in to carefully plan the sequence of your thoughts.

An outline serves as a framework for your article. It helps you in structuring the introduction, body and conclusion of your

article. While outlining, you can and should write down just about anything that comes to your mind about your topic. The next step is to organize this collection of ideas.

Here are some tricks on how to effectively outline :

  • Jot down everything in your head. Do not worry about it making sense. Just go ahead and squeeze out all you can from your brain. Take all the time you need but remember you might have a deadline, so manage your time wisely.
  • Label your thoughts. After gathering your ideas on a subject matter, think about what would make these ideas pop out to the reader. In this stage, go for captivating words for your subtitles.
  • Connect the dots. You now have everything you need to start working on the article. So start on sequencing your collected thoughts and make logical sense of them.
  • Write a draft. This is your trial and error stage, and with practice, eventually you might end up just doing this once.
  • Proofread your work. A good writer always make sure that the message you want to be delivered to your readers are perfectly conveyed, which is why you need to recheck for grammatical errors and place the right punctuations in stressing out your point.
  • Have fun making your outlines and most importantly, enjoy writing!

          Thailand Pushes Xayaburi Dam   
Xayaburi work goes on (photo credit: Suthep Kritsanavarin)

Wednesday, 29 February 2012

Asian Sentinel


Despite reservations from Mekong Basin countries, construction continues

Over the opposition of environmental groups and the governments of other countries in the Mekong Basin, the Thai government is pushing ahead with the construction of the controversial Xayaburi Dam, environmentalists say.

Although the Cambodian and Vietnamese governments have expressed concerns about the dam and work was supposed to stop until further study has been completed, preliminary construction on the giant dam deep inside Laos, is continuing, according to International Rivers, which opposes the structure.


Large numbers of workers have been on the job for two years to build access roads and facilities for the project, said Pianporn Deetes, Thailand Campaign Coordinator for International Rivers. Ch. Karnchang, Thailand’s largest construction company, has the contract to build the dam for the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand, better known as EGAT, which has contracted to 95 percent of the energy from the dam.

“It doesn’t mean the dam can’t be stopped,” Deets told Asia Sentinel in a telephone interview. “We believe there are many channels that we can try to cancel the PPA (power purchase agreement).”

Thailand appears to be defying an agreement in early December by the Mekong River Commission Council, comprising water and environment ministers from Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam, to seek international support to produce a more complete study of the dam, which is intended to produce 1,280 megawatts of power for the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand.

The Mekong supports the largest freshwater fishery in the world. The downstream governments are concerned that the Xayaburi and 10 other dams planned for the Mekong, which feeds a river basin populated by 60 million people, will do irreparable damage to the river’s habitat.

Environmentalists say anywhere between 23 and 100 fish species could be adversely affected.

The dam, 810 meters wide and 32 meters high, is opposed by 263 NGOs from 51 countries. Thousands of people in the region have urged that it be cancelled. Its primary objective is to generate, along with electricity, foreign exchange earnings for financing socio-economic development in Laos, a landlocked and obscure country of 6.8 million mostly poverty-stricken people. Laos is seeking to develop its way into prosperity through extensive investment in dams, mines and plantations, hoping for jobs, rising incomes and revenues to end poverty.

Wracked by incessant bombing and the dropping of tens of millions of antipersonnel mines by the Americans during the Vietnam War, Laos remains one of the world's poorest countries, ranking 135th in the world. Nearly 41 percent of the population are under the age of 14. It is one of the few remaining one-party Communist countries left on the planet. Subsistence agriculture accounts for as much as 30 percent of gross domestic product, according to the CIA Factbook, and provides 80 percent of total employment.

Ten dams are already in operation across the country, generating 669 megawatts of power. Another eight are expected to be operational by this year, generating an additional 2,531 megawatts. Nineteen more are planned and 42 more are the subject of feasibility studies, almost all of them financed and developed by foreign interests expecting to turn a profit from electricity generation. Thailand is to import up to 7,000 megawatts by 2015. Vietnam will take another 3,000 megawatts by 2015 possibly rising to 5,000 megawatts by 2020 in accordance with an understanding reached in December 2006, according to a 2010 study titled Development in LAO PDR: the Food Security Paradox, produced for the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and written by researcher David Fullbrook.

In 2010, the Mekong River Commission commissioned a strategic environmental assessment that recommended all decisions on Mekong mainstream dams be deferred for a period of at least 10 years while further studies can be conducted.

“We are afraid the fish migration could be destroyed,” Deets said. “There are 60 million people in the basin who depend for their livelihood on the river.”

The Thai government, she said in a prepared statement, “has ignored the agreements made last year among the four regional governments and the concerns expressed by Cambodia and Vietnam. With more than eight provinces in Thailand at risk from the Xayaburi Dam’s transboundary impacts, the state has also disregarded its duty to protect its own people from harm. It’s irresponsible to push forward with this dam, when the project’s impacts on Thailand have yet to be adequately studied.”

“The Mekong River Commission governments have not yet reached agreement on the Xayaburi Dam nor have they closed the prior consultation process,” the press release quoted Lam Thi Thu Suu, Director of the Centre for Social Research and Development in Vietnam, as saying. “By committing to purchase power from the dam and moving forward with the project’s implementation, EGAT and Ch. Karnchang are violating the trust and goodwill of Thailand’s neighbors. No construction on the Xayaburi Dam should proceed while further study is underway.”

Four Thai banks have already provided financial support for the dam including the state-owned Krung Thai Bank. When the Commission asked about the steps they took to examine the project’s environmental and social impacts, however, the banks were not able to provide detailed information.

“It’s astonishing to think that the financiers of this project have not taken the dam’s significant environmental and social impacts more seriously. Even a five minute search on the internet would reveal numerous media reports that highlight the concerns of the Thai people,” Deets said. “The recklessness of EGAT’s and the Thai companies’ pursuit of the project is likely to become a catastrophe for our country’s reputation. We call on the Thai government to immediately cancel the power purchase agreement and for Thai banks to withdraw financing from the Xayaburi Dam.”

An independent study has already concluded that the Xayaburi Dam’s electricity is not needed to meet Thailand’s demand for energy in the coming decades.

          Commentaires sur Utiliser un VPS pour héberger un serveur OpenVPN et un serveur proxy par Nettlebay   
Génial! J'avais passé une demie-journée à essayer d'installer Openvpn sur une vieille machine (Eeebox) sans y parvenir. Avec cette méthode, ça été fait en quelques minutes. Et ça fonctionne! Pour ceux que ça intéresse: ma vieille Eeebox sert donc de passerelle pour 1 autres ordi de la maison ou un smartphone. Hélas, on est limité avec cette version d'OpenVPN à 2 clients. Dommage... The best, c'est que mon Eeebox est connectée à mon VPN à Miami* (VPS Vultr). Si bien que les autres ordis le sont aussi. Ça fonctionne nickel. J'avais déjà tenté l'expérience avec Tinyproxy et Polipo mais c'était imparfait. Certains détecteurs d'IP en ligne voyaient ma véritable IP et par exemple, je ne pouvais pas écouter Pandora.com depuis un PC. Par contre, ça fonctionne nickel avec mon Smartphone. Maintenant (enfin demain), je vais essayer la connexion distante par Internet avec No-ip ou dtdnds (j'ai les deux). Mon projet est d'acheter un 2e RPI pour donc en faire un serveur dédié à cet usage. Le premier RPI est un serveur HTTP pour ma camera-réseau extérieure DYI (une logitech). *J'ai choisi Miami car je réside dans l'île de St Martin aux Petites Antilles à 2000 km de Miami et que la connexion se fait par St Martin » Porto-Rico » Miami (ou Fort-Lauderdale) » reste du monde. C'est donc le plus court chemin pour nous. Je n'ai pas trop le choix.

          Una perspectiva radial sobre el iPad   

A días del lanzamiento mundial del iPad, queremos darles a ustedes una perspectiva de la experiencia que se tendrá al escuchar la radio por internet. Aquí les va algunas recomendaciones si quieren comprar uno de estos gadgets.

Mayor amplitud de visión
.: Como sabemos el iPad es una mezcla de una notebook y un iPhone. En el ámbito radial podremos tener una mejor visión de nuestro playlist musical, aparte de poder hacer un zoom manual y ver las opciones que se nos muestra.

Calidad de sonido
: ¿Tendrá la misma calidad de sonido que sale por una MacBook Pro o un iPhone? es la interrogante por la cual hay que comprar un iPad si uno tiene tendencia a la música o a la radio. Tendremos que verificar si suena igual o mejor a los dispositivos antes de comprarlo.

Continuar leyendo para leer todo el artículo.



El tiempo de vida de la batería
: Es de suma importancia esto ya que esto es depende de cada persona. Sobretodo para aquellos que tienen que ir en bus o en el tren y necesitan escuchar algo de música. Apple había anunciado que el iPad tendría un tiempo de duración de la batería de 10 horas. Por lo cual no estaría mal hacerle un testeo previo.

Aplicativos y softwares compatibles
: Una pregunta que me hago es que si los aplicativos radiales que se usaban para el iPhone tendran compatibilidad con el iPad. A esto debemos sumarle si algunas empresas ya han creado software de webcast. Esperamos su anuncio señores.

Velocidad de tranmisión de datos: iPad ofrece conectividad con 3G Wireless. Así que es un punto a favor para los que quieran escuchar música con calidad superior a los 192 kbps. Ahora me pregunto si algún broadcaster visitante del blog se animaría a transmitir radio por internet por el iPad. Para los que ya lo han comprado sería muy bueno que comenten en este post la experiencia radial que han tenido con este dispositivo.
          El Ford Fiesta vendrá con una aplicación compatible con Pandora en este 2011   

El nuevo Ford Fiesta que llegará a Estados Unidos en 2011, buscará acoplarse con otros modelos Ford para lo que será el lanzamientodel año para esa marca, ya que este será equipada con una aplicación del popular servicio de radios por internet Pandora. Esto quiere decir que los conductores ya no tendrán que conectar sus BlackBerrys o iPhones en sus sistemas estéreo.

En su lugar, usando la conectividad Bluetooth, los conductores podrán controlar Pandora mediante el Sync AppLink, que permitirá la activación de este sistema por el reconocimiento de voz. La idea es que la radio por Internet a partir de ese momento deba ser lo más fácil de usar para estos conductores. Julius Marchwicki de Ford manifestó: "El hecho de que la radio por Internet ahora es más fácil de usar en el automóvil no quiere decir que los organismos de radiodifusión tradicionales de radio tienen que sufrir, siempre y cuando tienen seguir el ritmo."

          Withdrawal Symptoms   
Ever tried getting down a running bus? Yup, the inertia funda. Physics, class XI, CBSE.

My prolonged stay at home, after the months spent at IIMC, has put me in that kind of situation. When I was always chasing deadlines at IIMC, I would have laughed at someone had he suggested that nothingness can bore you. And yet here I am, toppled into the abyss of deep boredom. Despite the long sleeping hours, longer hours spent in front of the TV, the days just don't get over.

And the mercury is rising too! Its tough to imagine that the day I arrived here I slept in a rajayi. Now its almost imbearable to be out in the sun. The ceiling fan is no longer adequate to beat the heat. Glad that I won't be here to face the worst.

All's not lost tho', all the cricket happening about half the globe away keeps me company. The idleness compels me to listen to the pre-match chat show too, not that it makes me any wiser or happier. Tut-tut, India's out; but still the arena is wide open! My predictions: Semifinalists - Aus, SA, SL and NZ & Dream Final - Aus vs SA with SA claiming the cup. Long way to that though.

And I'm reading again. A lot, by my own standards. Some recommendations -
  • A Corner of a Foreign Field - Amazing work about mostly pre-independence history of cricket in India. Even if the WC debacle left a bitter taste in mouth, don't miss this masterpiece, for the love of the game. Hat's off to Guha for doing all the hard work in researching the anecdotes and stories to present in such lucid form! (and if cricket still fancies you, pick Pundits from Pakistan also!)
  • Above Average - Doesn't dwell too much on the IIT connection. Very interesting, very piquant. Very nostalgic for any IITian, more so for IITD junta (I guess). Its characters reminded me of many lost faces from my IIT days.
  • Spy Princess: The Life of Noor Inayat Khan - The story is definitely very thrilling & impressive, though the narration lacks punch. It's told just like a chronological record of facts. Bit drab in parts, still quite enjoyable as a whole.
  • Being John Mcenroe - Rather than being just descriptive, this book tries to analyze the reasons behind & effects of John Mcenroe on Tennis. Great insights about the genius and his times.
  • A Short History of Nearly Everything - Masterpiece! Absolute masterpiece! Would appeal to anyone with slightest bend of mind towards Science & tiniest tinge of curiosity towards Nature. Simply unputdownable.
  • The IITians - Just started this one. Starts on perhaps a bit too laudatory note, but is building up nicely. Should be a good read.
Apart from all this, I've also started reading blogs again. But my BSNL dial-up doesn't allow me to surf much. By the way, till very recent I wasn't aware that you can just put the BSNL phone cable in your laptop, do simple registration once and can start surfing @ ~40 kbps on totally on-use-basis rates! Check out Account free Internet dial up access based on CLI.

All my bags are not yet packed and I'm not yet ready to go, still another week left. But most of my shopping is done, barring some last minute items. Not yet thinking much about the upcoming internship, but I hope it would be interesting time. Reminds me of an ancient Chinese curse - "May you live in interesting times." Hmm, we'll see that.

Couple of things I have to do in London -
  1. Watch a cricket match, county-shounty, anything!
  2. Watch a soccer match. Some decent clubs whose names I know, hopefully.
  3. Visit some typical Irish pubs (just to check out the atmo, Mom!)
  4. Buy long-pending lenses for my camera and click loads of pictures.
  5. Travel a bit. Bath, Oxford, some coastal towns, perhaps.
Time to hit the bed.

Ironically, this might be due to the fact that the show's original showrunner, Sam Simon, didn't think that the show would make it past season one. When in the writer's room, Simon was said to tell his employees that their fledgling show would be "13 and out," meaning that the show probably wouldn't return after its initial order.  Though this way of thinking annoyed series creator Matt Groening, who view Simon as being a defeatist, Simon claims that he was actually just trying to make the best show he could. By making the writers believe the show had no future, it allowed them to focus on the sole goal of making 13 great episodes of television that they would be truly proud of. This arguably contributed to the show's quality which, in turn, contributed to the show's unfathomable popularity. Apparently, focusing on quality is a good way to make something that's actually good. Who woulda thunk it?

 

2. Marge's Hair Used To Hide Secrets...Incredibly Stupid Secrets...

undefined

Matt Groening is responsible for some of the greatest television ever created. It's weird therefore that his instincts about his own properties are often....odd. Take for example the story behind Marge's iconic hairdo. It's pretty well known at this point, but it's worth noting because MATT GROENING ORIGINALLY WANTED TO REVEAL THAT MARGE WAS A FUCKING BUNNY RABBIT! Matt Groening came to prominence with the comic strip Life In Hell and it seems to have taken him a while to realize that once The Simpsons came along, nobody could give less of a shit about his stupid comic. As such, Groening wanted to reference the strip (which prominently featured rabbits) by having Marge take down her beehive and reveal a pair of bunny ears underneath. Sam Simon quickly shot down the idea because, well, he wasn't a psychopath, but there's an alternate universe  where the greatest show in history was ruined by the stupidest reveal conceivable.

 

 

3. There's A VERY Dirty Easter Egg In Apu's Alma Mater

undefined

The Simpsons writers can cram so many jokes into a single frame that it would be impossible for a mere mortal to catch them all. This was the case with the episode Much Apu About Nothing. In it, Apu gives the story about how he came to be an illegal alien living in America. One of the thing he mentions is the fact that he studied at Springfield Heights Institute of Technology. It's a small moment, and one that you're probably not likely to take a second glance at...at least that was the case with censors who didn't notice that the initials for Apu's university spell out "SHIT." Is this the most clever thing The Simpsons has ever done? Not by a long shot. But it's always fun to see just how deep the show's humor can get.  

 

4. Manjula Appeared In A Flashback TWO SEASONS Before Her Actual Debut

undefined

Speaking of Much Apu About Nothing, there's another fun easter egg in there. The episode predicted more than just America's rise towards jingoistic nationalism: It actually gave us our first glimpse at Majula two seasons before her proper debut. When Apu is telling his story about leaving India, he includes a part where he bids goodbye to a young girl and apologizes for not being able to marry her.  To people watching the show at the time, it seems like a small, mildly racist joke, but two seasons later the little girl returns as Apu's now adult, arranged wife, Manjula. Majula then goes on to be a fairly major character on the show, with several episodes revolving around her and Apu's relationship....none of those episodes are particularly good and she's arguably the most banal character in the entire series, but it's still a fun easter egg nonetheless.

 

5. Milhouse Is Named After History's Greatest Monsters

undefined

Millhouse is an unfortunate little guy and as such, the writers wanted to give him "the most unfortunate name" they could think of. They settled on Millhouse after Richard Nixon's middle name. You may think that things couldn't get worse than being named after history's jowliest president but you'd be very wrong. The other parts of the character's name come from much darker people. For starters, his last name, Van Houten, comes from Leslie Van Houten. If you don't know, Leslie Van Houten was a murderer from the infamous Manson Family, and was the youngest woman to ever be sentenced to death in California. As if that weren't bad enough, later on in the show's run, it was revealed that Milhouse's middle name was "Mussolini." This is, of course, a reference to Benito Mussolini, who if you don't know who that is....well, let's just say he did some very bad things as well. This is all to say, poor Millhouse.

 

 

6. The Couch Gags Serve More Purpose Than You Realize

undefined

One of the most iconic parts of The Simpsons is their couch gags which are different every episode...You know, except when they aren't. Fans of the earlier episodes might notice that there's one couch gag that's reused more than all others. It features the family in a circus setting and is noticeably longer than most other openers. Why is this the one that gets recycled, you ask? Well, let's just say that when you're creating something as jam packed and ingenious as The Simpsons it can be hard to reach the minimum required runtime. As such, they would often use the nebulous nature of the couch gag to pad out an episode, piping in elongated ones like the one at the circus as they needed. Basically, even the filler on The Simpsons is better than most other things on TV.

 

7. Dustin Hoffman Is Credited With A Very Funny Pseudonym

undefined

One of the greatest guest stars in the history of The Simpsons  was Dustin Hoffman in the season 2 episode, "Lisa's Substitute." Strangely, despite it arguably being his most important role ever, Hoffman only agreed to do the episode if he was credited using a pseudonym. This being The Simpsons, they obviously used this as an opportunity for a joke, choosing to credit one of the greatest actors in history as "Sam Etic." If you don't get the joke, say it out loud. This name is an obvious reference to Hoffman's Jewish heritage, and possibly even his "Semitic good looks," that Lisa talks about during the classic episode.

 

8. Moe Didn't Get His Last Name Until Season 6

undefined

Moe is one of the greatest characters in a show full of great characters. He's popular enough that most of you would probably know the answer if I asked you to say his last name. What you may not know is that he didn't get that last name until season 6 for the sole purpose of throwing off the audience. In the epic two parter, "Who Shot Mr. Burns?", the major clue as to the identity of the shooter revolved around the fact, after being shot, Mr. Burns passed out with his arms pointing to the W and the S of the town sundial. undefined

To create multiple viable suspects, the writers played up the possible involvement of anyone whose name might involve those initials. As such, to throw Moe into the mix, they showed his liquor license revealing for the first time that his last name was Syzlack. This gave him initials that lined up with the clue from the sundial and made some internet nerd probably lose his shit thinking he'd cracked the code of who shot Mr. Burns, before ultimately punching a hole in his computer screen when he found out it was Maggie.

 

9. Two Members Of The Main Family Have Been The Subject Of TV Movies

undefined

One of the fun parts about The Simpsons is that the family's exploits can grow so large that they actually make national news within the world of the show. This can be seen in the fact that both Homer AND Bart have been the subjects of two unrelated, made for TV movies. The first of these focused on Bart after he was accused of murdering Principal Skinner. The film was aptly called Blood on the Blackboard  and it starred a young child actor named Neil Patrick Harris as Bart.

Three seasons later, Homer got the TV movie treatment himself when he was accused of sexual harassment. His film was called Homer S: Portrait of an Ass-Grabber and it starred Dennis Franz as the title role. So, if you're ever curious what the writers think a real world Homer would look like, it's this:

10. The Simpsons Actually DO Go To Delaware

undefined

The season 11 episode, Behind The Laughter, was an off the wall, meta-masterpiece that also probably should have served as the show's series finale. Unfortunately, it did not and the show returned season after season to diminishing returns. In a humorous nod to the show's apparent decline in quality, one of the last scenes episode, we see Homer in an editing room watching  a cut of an episode in which Lisa excitedly declares, "The Simpsons are going to Delaware!" It's funny because no show would actually base an episode on the family winning a trip to the most boring state in the union...except, they totally do!

Exactly one season later, The Simpsons do, in fact, win a trip to Delaware! The show reuses the audio that was presented as an example of the show's lack of ideas and work it into an actual episode. Granted, it's clearly done ironically and the majority the episode is an anthology about tall tales, but the instance is still fun to think about. Not only is it a fun callback to an earlier episode, but it also seems to serve as infuriating evidence that even the writers knew that the show was beginning to lose its luster.

 

11. You Can Apparently Find Waldo Hiding In Springfield

undefined

The Simpsons is so jam packed with references that watching it can you're reading a Where's Waldo book....Sometimes, literally! The classic children's character has shown up as a sight gag on at least two unrelated occasions.

The first of these occurs in the episode "Bart's Comet" when the entire town of Springfield is crammed into a tiny bomb shelter. See if you can spot him:

undefined

The bestriped traveler appears again a few seasons later in the episode "Hello Gutter, Hello Fadder." Homer plays looks at a Where's Waldo? book and fails to find him, only to have the actual character walk around behind him outside the kitchen window: 

undefined

So, is the show trying to tell us that Waldo exists in the world of The Simpsons and is, in fact, a resident of Springfield? No of course not. These are clearly just two unrelated sight gags...A guy can dream, though.


          Idée reçue en référencement : les liens de l’Internet sont inutiles voire dangereux   

Il existerait une idée reçue selon laquelle seuls les liens forts sont importants dans nos vies et que les liens faibles sont artificiels et futiles quand ils ne sont pas dangereux. Transposé au Web...

Si les amis en ligne sont à peu de choses près les mêmes que les amis hors ligne, les enquêtes montrent que ce ne sont pas les rares liens amoureux et familiaux, ceux que l’ont dit les plus « forts », qui sont au cœur des échanges sur Internet.  D'ailleurs le web lui-même s'est construit sur une multitude de liens interconnectant les sites entre eux et que les spécialistes du référencement appellent "backlinks", des liens le plus souvent "faibles" selon la terminologie de la sociologie des réseaux sociaux classiques mais qui ont contribué à faire le classement des résultats de recherches sur Google par exemple (pour plus d'info voir la méthotodologie de référencement des SEO sur  www.referencement-sud.net , www.slideshare.net/echangeurba/les-cls-du-rfrencement-naturel-focus-2014 etc.).  Ainsi selon des sociologues de l'Internet,  avec le web,  on peut parler justement de la "force des liens faibles" (voir le sociologue Granovetter ) .

Ainsi dans les réseaux sociaux type Facebook, twitter, les aveux les plus intimes ne s’exhibent guère et préfèrent les échanges interpersonnels du téléphone, du SMS et d’email. Et les réseaux sociaux augurent  moins la fin de la vie privée, qu’ils ne sont le théâtre de nouvelles formes expressives dans lesquelles le personnel fait l’objet d’une mise en scène soigneusement calculée. Ce que les réseaux sociaux numériques transforment le plus dans l’organisation de la sociabilité des individus n’est ni le contact aventureux avec des inconnus ni l’échange intime avec les plus proches.

C’est entre deux, au sein du répertoire des « liens faibles », ces indispensables intermédiaires de la vie sociale, que se déploie la nouvelle sociabilité numérique : copains de toujours ou d’occasion, collègues, partenaires d’activités, amis d’amis, connaissances lointaines, utiles ou intéressantes, personnes qui comptent, qui ont compté ou dont on voudrait qu’elles comptent davantage…

D'ailleurs le sociologue Dominique Cardon, a dressé un panorama cartographique des diverses stratégies de liens sociaux au sein du web Français, il y a quelques années : attribuant aux internautes la faculté de créer une sorte de "design de la visibilité" https://www.cairn.info/revue-reseaux1-2008-6-page-93.htm

          Pour Google la notion de vie privée absolue n’existe plus à l’heure de "street view"   

Pour Google la notion de vie privée absolue n’existe plus à l’heure de « street view » Poursuivi en justice par un couple pour la publication de photos de leur maison sur le site Google Map street view le géant d’internet affirme par la voix de ses nombreux avocats que la notion de vie privée absolue n’existe plus à l’heure de l’imagerie satellite.

 « La technologie de l’imagerie satellite aujourd’hui signifie que même dans le désert la notion de vie privée absolue n’existe pas », affirme leur argumentaire présenté au tribunal et publié sur le site thesmokinggun.

Les photos de cette maison de Pennsylvanie ont été prises par une des voitures équipées par Google de caméras panoramiques automatiques. Suite à la plainte déposée en avril par la famille Boring pour notamment violation de propriété privée elles ont été retirées du site.

Dans leur argumentaire les défenseurs de Google estiment que le panneau « voie privée » sur la route qui conduit à la maison n’est pas suffisant pour empécher le passage de la voiture de Google et affirme que les plaignants auraient pu utiliser une des fonctions du site qui permet de demander le retrait de photos plutôt que d’engager une procédure de dommages et intérets.

          GetGlue, l'ex foursquare multimédia   

Il se présentait comme un nouveau réseau social révolutionnaire et comme beaucoup il n'a pas atteint la masse critique d'utilisateurs qui lui auraient permit de survivre : voici GetGlue.

Pour faire simple, GetGlue était une sorte de foursquare multimédia : vous pouviez faire des check-in de vos émissions TV, films, jeux vidéo etc. Encore le même principe que Foursquare, vous débloquerez (non pas des badges) des stickers ! Par exemple, j'ai utilisé l'application Android pour faire un check-in sur le jeu fifa 16 ( voir crédits fifa pas cher)  que j'avais reçu  quelques jours auparavant, et j'avais débloqué le badge Android.

Le fonctionnement était très simple : lorsque vous créez votre compte, il y a la possibilité de se connecter via vos comptes facebook et twitter pour que vos amis/followers inscris sur GetGlue s'ajoutent automatiquement à votre réseau. Il ne vous restait plus qu'a télécharger une des applications pour smartphones et faire votre premier check-in (ceci dit, c'est aussi possible sur PC). Vous pouviez alors en plus de vos check-ins, aimer les différents sujets/films/musiques etc. 

GEtblue.jpg

Le réseau était alors très varié grâce à cela. Vous n'êtiez pas forcément obligé de toujours faire des check-ins, il y avait aussi la possibilité d'aimer simplement tous les sujets. Lorsque vous réalisiez certaines actions, elles étaient publiées sur twitter et facebook (c'était configurable). A chaque fois que quelqu'un venait s'inscrire depuis votre lien, vous receviez un mail. Je savais ainsi que certains de mes followers s'étaient déjà inscris sur GetGlue par les notifications qui ont été envoyées...

Quant aux applications, elle étaient disponibles pour les terminaux Android, iOS (iPhone et iPad) et Blackberry. Il existait aussi la version Web mobile.

GetGlue paraissait être un réseau social d'un nouveau genre, original et prometteur. Il restait toujours des choses à découvrir et à revoir.

Il n'y avait qu'un défaut à GetGlue, c'est que malheureusement les émissions de télévision françaises n'étaient pas disponibles, et c'est bien dommage (ceci dit, si vous êties utilisateur iOS vous pouvez toujours utiliser une alternative se nommant TVcheck, qui se base sur le même principe mais qui n'a pas non plus passé l'épreuve du temps sur Internet...

Чудесные квасы для похудения и очистки организма

Издревле наши предки готовили чудодейственный для здоровья квас, а современники открыли в нем еще одно важное свойство – способность снижать вес и ускорять обмен веществ.

В данной статье собраны лучшие рецепты кваса для похудения. Все они готовятся в домашних условиях и без дрожжей.

Овсяный квас для похудения

Курс приема кваса длится 2 недели. Уже через 2 недели будет заметное улучшение пищеварения и потеря килограмм. Даже приеме пищи за месяц можно потерять несколько килограмм.

На трехлитровую банку достаточно будет взять 0,5 кг овса или овсяных хлопьев. Предварительно промываем их, высыпаем в нашу емкость и заливаем кипяченой водой. Добавляем около 3 столовых ложек сахара для того, чтобы пошел процесс брожения. Далее следует завязать горлышко банки марлей и оставить на 2 суток. По истечению этого времени на поверхности кваса из овса должна образоваться пленка — это верный признак того, что напиток готов. Теперь можно слить закваску и пить ее для похудения по 1 стакану за 30 минут до еды.

Рецепт свекольного кваса для похудения

Одну крупную свеклу или 2 небольшие натереть на терке, добавить черствую корочку ржаного хлеба и залить 2 литрами холодной воды. Размешать с 4 ст. л. сахара. Оставьте на 3-4 дня, затем поместите в холодильник.

Польза свекольного кваса: выводит холестерин, улучшает обмен веществ, помогает при сердечно-сосудистых заболеваниях, расширяет сосуды, очищает кишечник, полезен при ожирении.

Как пить свекольный квас: по 0,5 стакана за полчаса до еды (не более 5 стаканов в сутки). Если организм стал слишком часто очищаться, то прием прекратить на время либо уменьшить количество напитка в сутки. Для разнообразия можно приготовить на нем окрошку.

Травяной квас по Болотову

Очень многим известен следующий рецепт кваса из чистотела с добавлением молочной сыворотки, который придумал академик Болотов. Этот целебный напиток способствует очищению организма от шлаков и расщеплению жиров. Он также укрепляет иммунитет и часто применяется при простудных заболеваниях.
С помощью травяного кваса можно быстро снять жар при повышенной температуре.
Готовить его следует так: в трехлитровую банку нужно засыпать 1 стакан нарезанных листьев чистотела, 200 гр сахара, 0,5 литра молочной сыворотки и все содержимое до верху залить чистой водой. Такой квас будет готов через 10 дней. Для похудения его следует пить каждый день за 30 минут до еды.

Лимонный квас

Для этого напитка нужно будет 3-4 больших лимона. Предварительно лучше всего ошпарить их кипятком, чтобы обезопасить себя от различных химических веществ, которыми обильно покрывают продукт для предотвращения порчи при транспортировке и хранении. В большую емкость для кваса отжимаем сок из наших лимонов, добавляем туда 2,5 стакана сахара, 20 гр дрожжей, 100 гр изюма и лимонную цедру. Для процесса брожения достаточно будет 2-х дней при комнатной температуре. Далее хранить лучше на холоде.

Рисовый квас

На 1 литр остывшей кипяченой воды берем 4 столовые ложки риса любого, кроме сечки. Добавляем 3 столовые ложки сахара и совсем немного изюма (5-6 штучек). Все размешиваем и оставляем отстаивать на 3-4 дня (в зависимости от того, насколько жарко в комнате). После процеживаем, разливаем по бутылкам и храним в холодильнике. Такой напиток не только поможет очистить кишечник, но и будет очень хорош для профилактики остеохондроза и болей в суставах.

Имбирный квас

Для кваса из имбиря можно взять 500 гр ржаных сухариков или 800 гр ржаного хлеба, залить их кипятком так, чтобы вода покрыла полностью хлебную массу. Закрываем крышкой и оставляем настаиваться на 5 часов.
Имбирный корень очищаем и нарезаем пластинками (достаточно будет около 7 тонких пластин), заливаем их 4 литрами воды и варим порядка 20 минут после того, как закипит. Нам нужен будет чистый отвар без имбиря, если используете молотый имбирь, то отвар следует процедить.

Имбирный отвар после того, как он остынет, добавляем в хлебную смесь и доводим до кипения. Затем ждем, пока все остынет до комнатной температуры. Тем временем берем 30 гр дрожжей и разводим их в теплой водичке. Далее добавляем в нашу имбирно-хлебную массу дрожжи, 0,5 литра яблочного сока и 2 стакана сахара. Все тщательно размешиваем и оставляем в теплом месте. Обычно уже через 12-18 часов имбирный квас готов. Такой напиток отличается особым богатым и охлаждающим вкусом.

Полезные советы для приготовления кваса для похудения:

Ингредиенты заливаются прохладной водой, прокипяченной и охлажденной или очищенной.

Обычно во всех рецептах квас настаивают в стеклянной банке.

Накрывают его марлей.

Проследите, чтобы между марлей и верхом воды было небольшое расстояние – 3-4 сантиметра.

Сахар можно заменять медом в соотношении 1-2 ст. л. меда вместо 2-4 ст. л. сахара. Естественно, мед должен быть натуральный, желательно обычный, без водорослей и т.п. Добавление меда может избавить от часто появляющейся плесени.

В любой квас для вкуса и брожения можно добавить изюм (примерно 4-6 штучек на 2 литра) во время предварительного приготовления.
Обязательно процеживайте напиток через двойную или тройную марлю перед тем, как собираетесь его пить. источник

          Как сделать полку знают не только мужчины   

Это цитата сообщения подружка5 Оригинальное сообщениеКак сделать полку знают не только мужчины

как сделать полку


Если летом многие цветы размещены на балконе, то в зимний период дома им не хватает места. Вот и понадобились Наталье полки для цветов.


Заказать в мастерской или купить в магазине – дело не хитрое. Только либо цена не устраивает, либо конструкция полки.


И вообще, мы же можем сделать все сами!


Прежде всего, нужно приготовить для нее материал. Наталья приобрела в магазине.


Материал:



  1. Шпильки М10 длиной 1000 мм – 4 шт (от длины шпильки зависит высота полочки, можно меньше или больше, если шпилька будет длиннее полочку нужно будет дополнительно крепить к стене).

  2. Гайки М10 – 40 шт (количество зависит от количества полочек, 8 шт на 1 полочку).

  3. Шайбы М10 – 40 шт (количество зависит от количества полочек, 8 шт на 1 полочку).

  4. Готовые полочки 600х200 мм – 5 шт (размер можно выбрать любой, также полочки можно вырезать из фанеры).

  5. Линейка, карандаш, дрель и сверло Ø 10 мм.


как сделать полку


На готовых полочках размечаем отверстия: отступаем по 3 см с каждой стороны и сверлим их дрелью.



как сделать полку


Приступаем к сборке. На шпильки накручиваем гайки, потом шайбы — по одной на каждую шпильку.


как сделать полку


В каждое отверстие в полочке вставляем шпильку и с обратной стороны фиксируем шайбой и гайкой.


как сделать полку


Переворачиваем нашу конструкцию и начинаем нанизывать на каждую шпильку наши детали на определенном расстоянии от уже закрепленной полки в следующей очерёдности: гайка, шайба, полочка, шайба, гайка.


как сделать полку


Затем таким же образом крепим следующие полочки.


Чтобы полочка была устойчивой, нужно очень хорошо затянуть гайки.


И вот результат: простая удобная полка своими руками, которую можно поставить и на стол, и на пол, использовать не только для цветов, а для разных мелочей и подарков, которые вам дороги.


полка своими руками


Шпильки, гайки и шайбы можно покрасить или скрыть лаком, но в этом есть 2 недостатка: 1) на оцинковке плохо держится краска (со временем трескается и отпадает), 2) после покраски невозможно регулировать высоту полок, а в нашем варианте при надобности полочки можно поднимать или опускать.


Наташа делала полку вместе с сыном, который так увлекся, что забросил игры на компьютере и решил сделать еще одну полку самостоятельно для себя.


Как сделать полку, мы уже знаем. Проявляя фантазию, можно сделать полки своими руками не только прямоугольные, но любой другой формы. Если в ваших закромах найдется какой-нибудь старый подходящий материал, можно оформить полку в технике декупаж.

          Masmorra do Zumbi Intergaláctico   

BEFORE WE GO ANY FURTHER...

...let's play the Name Game. You see this little mythology primer here isn't just for the giggles and grins, it cuts right to the core of the very strange daisy-chain of synchronicity we are trying to untangle.

Because Jeff Buckley's very surname means "shepherd boy."
Ó Buachalla, taken from the Irish word 'buachaill' originally meaning 'herdsman' (in modern Irish it has come to mean 'boy'), was anglcised early as Ó Boughelly, Boughla, Buhilly and later as Buckley. 
So you see I'm not exaggerating when I claim that what we're seeing here is a very ancient psychodrama that chose to play itself out in real time. I mean it literally. Do you understand me now?

And what about Liz Fraser? Well, given the Egyptian origin of the Biblical name (the first Elizabeth was connected to Moses and Aaron, both of which are native Egyptian names) I will go to my grave believing that in fact it comes from Eloah-Esi-Beth, or "Temple of the Goddess Isis." We'll get to Isis shortly.

But first the Fraser name, which ties into Knights Templar history, of all things:
The Frasers are believed to have come from Anjou in France. The name Fraser may be derived from Fredarius, Fresel or Freseau. Another suggestion is that the Frasers were a tribe in Roman Gaul, whose badge was a strawberry plant (fraisier in French). 
Might come from "fraisier." Gee, you think? 

But what's the significance of strawberries in this tale here? Well, it ties right back into the lineage of the same goddesses we're looking at. In this case the Syro-Roman variant:
The strawberry was a symbol for Venus, the Goddess of Love, because of its heart shapes and red color.
In a connection that will take on greater significance when we get to the next chapter of this drama, it so happens that Venus had a very Roswell kind of origin story:
In another story, told by Hyginus, an egg fell from the sky into the Euphrates, was rolled onto land by fish, doves settled on it and hatched it, and Venus, known as the Syrian goddess, came forth
Yeah, we're going there. But don't worry- it's baked right into the cake.


Yeah, those eyes. I know.

But of course the big kahuna of love-goddess and doomed shepherd myths is that of Isis and Osiris. In the best-known telling of the tale, Osiris' first death comes when he is drowned in the Nile inside his sarcophagus:
In some cases the texts suggest that Set takes the form of a wild animal, such as a crocodile or bull, to slay Osiris; in others they imply that Osiris's corpse is thrown in the water or that he is drowned. This latter tradition is the origin of the Egyptian belief that people who had drowned in the Nile were sacred.
And just to establish his shepherd cred:
 He also carries the crook and flail. The crook is thought to represent Osiris as a shepherd god. The symbolism of the flail is more uncertain with shepherds whip, fly-whisk, or association with the god Andjety of the ninth nome of Lower Egypt proposed.[12]
And as the fathomless enigmas of fate would have it, one of the foundation texts for the Isis-Osiris myth takes us back to- you guessed it- Memphis:
Another important source is the Memphite Theology, a religious narrative that includes an account of Osiris's death as well as the resolution of the dispute between Horus and Set. This narrative associates the kingship that Osiris and Horus represent with Ptah, the creator deity of Memphis. 
Quoting directly from the Memphite Theology, we have this:
Isis and Nepthys without delay, for Osiris had drowned in his water. Isis [and Nephthys] looked out, [beheld him and attended to him].  
OK, we have a river, a drowning and a Memphis. Can I shoehorn a wolf into this little catty-corner?

Oh, yes I can:
In the beginning, Osiris was associated mostly with agriculture. This cult spread rapidly into Upper Egypt, and soon Osiris became identified with the funeral god, Abydos, Khenti-Amentiu, who was symbolized by the wolf.  
But then we get thrown right down the crazy-stairs...

Oh, the eyes. Interesting.

While police divers were still dragging the Wolf River Harbor for Jeff Buckley's body, just a few blocks east the Grand Krewe of Osiris was enjoying the Carnival Memphis, kicking off at the Crosstown Concourse:
The Carnival Memphis Association organizes, plans, budgets, and promotes the King, Queen, and Royal Court, as well as many of the events staged during Carnival week. However, the Grand Krewes (once known as secret societies) also stage their own festivities throughout the year, elect their own royalty, manage their own budget, and have their own membership requirements.  
Most of these organizations bear Egyptian names in accordance to tradition originally set out by the Mystic Memphi, and in conjunction with Memphis being the sister city of ancient Memphis, Egypt. The twelve Grand Krewes that Carnival Memphis recognizes are the Mystic Society of the Memphi, Osiris, Sphinx, RaMet, Ennead, Phoenix, Aani, Ptolemy, Kemet Jubilee, Ptah, Luxor, Queen Bees.  
The Carnival kicks off the first weekend following Memorial Day. 

But what exactly is the Grand Krewe of Osiris? Well, besides the hosts of osirismemphis.com, that is?
Osiris was founded in 1934 as a Mystic Secret Society. Osiris membership has always consisted of top professional and business leaders. 
The Great Eye, the hieroglyphic symbol of Osiris for thousands of years, continues looking intently forward to the future of great city of Memphis, on the American Nile.
The Great Eye? You mean the one glowing in the middle of that giant pyramid you got there? The one on the shore of the Wolf River Lagoon? OK. Thanks.

Good, clean Masonic fun

And what exactly do their ceremonies entail?
The ceremonies were mysterious and symbolic, but the most common feature was the procession of Queen Isis in her carriage, far beyond the precincts of her temple on occasions to other towns. 
These occasions were passed amid great rejoicing, music, dancing, and feasting which formed important parts of the festival rites. 
The feast was held within lofty walls, with an entrance between immense pylons inscribed with hieroglyphs. 
Those called to join celebrated the regeneration of the land, the renewal of friendships, and the hopes for a productive and joyful year!

Is it just me or does this sound like something straight out of Summerisle? And how exactly do these ceremonies climax?
Our Queen Isis has always been known for her beauty and membership in a prominent family. She wears the Ring of Isis, engraved with her hieroglyphic symbol. 
The identity of King Osiris is revealed at the Banquet of Past Kings. He and all Past Osiris Kings wear the King’s Medallion on a scarlet and white ribbon at all Osiris and Carnival events.
OK, now I'm sure this is all fun and harmless and zany (totally Masonic) fun for the Memphite upper crust. But that doesn't matter in the context of ritual, especially the kind of ritual that goes beyond ritual. 

Because all this was going on while Jeff Buckley's body was floating a few blocks away in the Wolf River in the same exact way Osiris' body floated in the Nile.


You know Osiris-- the star-sailor. 



I said the Starsailor.

But again, the point is that happened. That actually happened. A bunch of drunk lawyers, doctors and their wives were playacting the mysteries of Isis and Osiris while an aspiring rock superstar was actually playing the part of Osiris in a ritual who I can't begin to imagine who -or more accurately, what -- was staging.

I mean, I never heard of this Carnival until a few hours ago. Have you?


What are the odds Elizabeth Fraser knew about any of this while she was writing songs that prophesy how a man she wouldn't meet for another 12 years would die? 

Somewhere between slim, zip and fuckall I'd wager.

But stay tuned because this story is about to take a very dark and sinister turn, taking us into the world of elite UFO cultists, the Tower of Babel, demons of the air, World War Three, and a prophecy of the most momentous event of our times.

I wish I were kidding.



TO BE CONTINUED















          "I Always Felt There was a Prophecy of Death in That Song."   


PART ONE | PART TWO | PART THREE | PART FOUR

NOTE: Updated 6/12

Led Zeppelin. John Lennon. Prince. George Michael. The Monkees. Lord Byron. Sinead O'Connor. Chris Cornell. What do all these people have in common? They're all connected in one way or another to an unfolding drama orbiting a seminal song written by a doomed folk singer and debuted to the world wrapped in a salad of black magic, alien technology and mind control. 

And from then on, things got really weird.

I really didn't mean to get sucked back into all of this. I meant to do an overview post to observe the 20th anniversary and be done with it all. But then Chris Cornell died and the same archetypes rose again. Which means this story is still telling itself. That kicked in the OCD and got me looking again for prophecies.

And boy howdy, I found some real brain-blowers. 

"NOW WE ARE ANGELS"

Now I know a lot of you out there don't care about the Cocteau Twins or Jeff Buckley's music. And for a lot of you this might all be old news. I get that, it's totally fine by me. But the music isn't really the point of all this. 

The point is the story, this ancient archetypal myth playing out in real time, for whatever possible reason it may have other than the spirit world seems to have a dark sense of irony. And it may have well taken more trophies.

So, esoterically speaking, this is the equivalent of a Darwinist being able to watch a dog evolving into a turtle. 

You see, what we have here is a drama that seems to weave in elements of the occult, witchcraft, precognition, prophecy, synchronicity, and maybe even some spirit possession. 

We have the story of a strange young woman from a dysfunctional working class family who grew up in a place saturated with the power of the old stories. A woman who seems to have dabbled in witchcraft before undergoing a startling transformation in which she suddenly came into possession of an electrifying musical gift that led one British newspaper to declare she had "the Voice of God."

In an entirely matter of fact, self-effacing manner she would claim that in fact she was possessed by or channeling some kind of entity, something I don't find very hard to believe at all. 

I mean, think about it; what sounds more like genuine entity possession to you, this or this

This or this?



TESTING THE SIRENS

Of course, the first test of the spirits comes through prophecy.

And from the very first moment Elizabeth Fraser came into the public eye she seemed to prophesy a terrible event that revolved around an old 60s folk song that seems to have taken on a life of its own in the years since it first debuted. 

And if you take all the apparent prophecies-- prophecies that fly around this story like wasps at your birthday barbecue--together, you come up with the name, place, time and manner that this story would reach its inevitable climax. 

And it all seemed to unfold over a span of four decades.

Mind you, all of this is something we can objectively document. Interpret the facts any way you like but the beauty of it is that you don't need to rely on hearsay or anecdote here. We're looking at accepted and recorded events of history not testimony or speculation.

But there's also that song, which itself seems to be some kind of supernatural totem.


ENTER THE SIREN


In true Secret Sun style, the 'Song to the Siren' made its worldwide debut in a very strange and unlikely venue. It was first heard on the final episode of The Monkees TV show in 1968. 

And as readers would probably expect by now, the episode dealt with aliens, mind control and black magic. Plus, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band:
The episode begins with a sunrise scene as the boys awaken to the sounds of the Beatles’ “Good Morning Good Morning,” which was the first time the Beatles had allowed their music to be used in a non-Beatles arena. 
The episode is, in short, about the evil Wizard Glick (played by Rip Taylor) who is on a mission to control people’s minds via their television sets. The airwaves beam out a hypnotic eye that is, well, hypnotizing its viewers, a not-so-subtle comment on the brain deadening effects of television. 
Evil wizards using alien technology to take over the world? Why does that sound so familiar?
Eventually, the boys discover that a creature called the Frodis plant had been captured when its spaceship landed on Earth, and was being used for evil by Wizard Glick. They realize they must rescue the Frodis and return it to its spaceship. Upon rescue, the plant emits this cloud of smoke, and in the process, seems to mellow out Glick and his cohorts, “I’ll let you work out that reference, folks,” adds Dolenz. The anti-war song “Zor and Zam” is featured during the “typical Monkees romp.”
As the story part of the episode ends, on walks the late singer-songwriter Tim Buckley to perform a solo acoustic version of his classic “Song to the Siren.” Buckley was a friend of Dolenz, who thought he should be introduced to the world. 
The beautiful song had, at the time, not been released.  
Note John Lennon wrote 'Good Morning Good Morning'. 

The episode is also known as "Mijacogeo," a (sub)title which wouldn't sound out of place on a Cocteau Twins record. In fact, there's even a scene where the Monkees begin chanting  in a style not unfamiliar to Cocteaux fans.

I mentioned this episode several years ago but hadn't seen it until recently. And my god, is it terrible. But as it happens, it also had an alternate title; 'The Frodis Caper.' I hadn't known that until just this past week. What's the significance of that title?

Here, let me write it like this: FRodiScapER
No luck? Try this: FRodiScapER

How's that?

There's even an A in there, if you want to get anagrammatic. And an 'Odic' too. If you really want to get obsessive you can make the p silent (as in Pfeiffer).

Tim Buckley, who never actually knew his son, died of an OD in 1975 at the age of 27. But already the prophecy machine seemed to have hummed to life.

 It'll End in Tears including
'Song to the Siren'

A PROPHECY

And just so we're clear on all this, I'm by no means the only person who gets how eerie this whole situation is, even if I was probably one of the first outside of the inner circle of people involved to do so. Even The Guardian has caught on:
(Tim) Buckley's eerie original is backed by stark waves of guitar and occasional high-pitched "siren" wails (is it his voice? An extremely flanged guitar?), and his five-octave-spanning tenor – "the closest thing to flying without taking acid or getting on a plane," Watts-Russell reckons. 
But Fraser's version suggested she was the siren of Homer's Odyssey personified, luring lovers to a premature grave
Sinead O'Connor, who was heavily influenced by Elizabeth Fraser, frames the story quite well here:
"I didn't know Buckley hadn't written the words," O'Connor says, "but I always felt there was a prophecy of death in that song." It's apparently the reason Fraser won't discuss the song (an interview request was ignored). Tim Buckley's son Jeff wrote to her when he heard the This Mortal Coil cover and, a couple of years before he drowned, aged 30, in 1997, they had a relationship.
The Financial Times also suggestively dropped that tragedy onto the last paragraph of their piece on 'Song to the Siren', but also noted the TMC/Cocteau Twins' version was so influential, that subsequent versions have mostly been covers of them:
Their reading set the template for those that were to follow — drifty, druggy, drenched in reverb, a perfect setting for lyrics such as “Did I dream you dreamed about me?"
And it so transpires that there are lot of well-known fans of Fraser's interpretation (including superstar directors Peter Jackson and David Lynch):
In 2002, Robert Plant covered it on his Dreamland album, garnished with his characteristic “oh-ohs”. In 2007, George Michael opened his gig at the new Wembley stadium by singing “Siren” from offstage (he later released it as a single)…Sinéad O’Connor’s 2010 version is heavily indebted to This Mortal Coil’s mystic-Celticism.


Indeed, George Michael - Greek by origin- did his level best to reproduce- note for note- Elizabeth Fraser's version of the song. At what was one of the biggest gigs of his career.

Of course, Michael himself recently died under circumstances that don't seem entirely transparent. There was a lot of mystery surrounding his passing, even if it was subsequently declared to be from natural causes. But Michael wasn't the only pop superstar to worship the Twins:
Madonna loved them, Prince wanted to sign them and Scritti Politti's Green Gartside said the vocally gymnastic Fraser was his third favourite melodicist of all time (behind Paul McCartney and Brian Wilson).
You can throw in Peter Gabriel and Boy George as well (George once said Fraser was his favorite singer). And yes, Prince was indeed a major Cocteau Twins fan.
Tictactoe is the tenth track on Prince's 36th album Plectrumelectrum (the first by Prince and 3rdEyeGirl). It is likely the track was recorded in February 2014.  
The magazine quotes Prince describing the recording of the track: “We recorded it in Bryan Ferry’s studio Studio One in London, after a night of partying for which the Cocteau Twins was the soundtrack. You can’t understand the words of Cocteau Twins songs but their harmonies put you in a dreamlike state.” 
Prince also died recently, at too young an age. Under circumstances that have inspired terrabytes of Internet speculation.



When the Levee Breaks, originally recorded 
by "Hoodoo Lady" Memphis Minnie

ENTER THELEMA

And just to add more fuel to the occult fire we have the Led Zeppelin connection to all of this. 

As you know, both Jeff Buckley and his best friend Chris Cornell sang Led Zeppelin tunes (or more accurately, blues standards commonly associated with Led Zep) shortly before they died. And Zeppelin's personal connections to Buckley are well-recorded:
One man who loved Grace was Jimmy Page. There was arguably no-one whose opinion Buckley valued more. He’d sung Zeppelin songs at Sin-é…One might even say there was a transference of Zeppelin energy taking place, a blessing or endorsement from afar, from the older men to the young. When Page and Buckley met, it was clear they understood each other on a profound level. 
“Jeff told me they cried,” says Chris Dowd. “They actually cried when they met each other. Jimmy heard himself in Jeff, and Jeff was meeting his idol. Jimmy Page was the godfather of Jeff’s music. A lot of people thought Tim was the influence on Jeff, but it was really Zeppelin. 
Less known is Led Zeppelin's connection to the Cocteau Twins- Robert Plant was/is a major devotee, saying in one interview "I wanted to be the Cocteau Twins". Then there's this, from a Twins interview:
Robert Plant went through a phase of raving about them in every interview he did. Liz doesn't tell me about the time she introduced herself to him, but Robin does. They had gone to see Echo & the Bunnymen. Liz, who was a little tipsy, spotted Robert Plant at the bar and tapped him on the shoulder. 
"Excuse me," she said. "I read that you really like the Cocteau Twins.""Yeah," the mousy-maned ex-sex god grunted. "I like them. Do you like them?"Mortified, she muttered her assent and slunk away.
According to another telling what she actually said is, "they're OK, I guess." Which is absolutely adorable.


EXHIBIT ONE: GARLANDS LYRICS SLEEVE

The lyrical swatches printed on the inner sleeve of the Cocteaux' 1982 debut album Garlands are tantalizing, and the band's official bio lists them in an interesting order. See this post for more information on Garlands.

And again, Jeff Buckley died on Garland Day.

First we have a quarrel with a lover, peppered with threats of violence.
"My mouthing at you; My tongue the stake; I should welt should I hold you; I should gash should I kiss you..." (Blind Dumb Deaf)

Things get a bit darker next- a song about blood sacrifice.
"Things from the forest die here, but I don't; Dead forest things are offered here, but I'm not...." (But I'm Not)

Then death on a river. Bear in mind the person who wrote these remarkable lyrics was only 18 years old:

"The then shallow she Earth as we know it; The then hallow she a sky for the sacred; Stars in my eyes; stars at my feet; womb in the belly; capital place..." (Shallow Then Halo)

As mentioned before, Memphis was the capital of Egypt's lower kingdom. And Jeff Buckley was swimming in shallow waters when he drowned (the deepest point of the Wolf River Harbor is only nine feet deep).

Next we have drugs, religion and death. 
"Garlands evergreen; forget-me-not wreaths; chaplets see me drugged; I could die in the rosary...." (Garlands)

Then this:
"Grail overfloweth, there is rain; and there's saliva and there's you...." (Grail Overfloweth)

As detailed before, we have two Buckley connections here, both to the rain during the search the night he disappeared and to the Grail-inspired "Corpus Christi Song" on Grace.

Now, returning to 'Shallow then Halo' we see wings and feathers connected to the river. We also see the mention of fertile soil.
Winged water
Feathered river
Dirty rich soil
Strong and fertile

What's the significance of wings and feathers to a river? Well, considering this is the Mississippi, perhaps we need to look at the Mississippi state seal for a clue.


Ahh. Dream-logic at work.

Then the soil:
At Cairo, Illinois, the Ohio River flows into the Mississippi, doubling its volume and creating the point that divides the Upper Mississippi from the Lower Mississippi. The Lower Mississippi Valley is a wide and fertile region… As it flows in this southern region, the Mississippi deposits rich silt along its banks.
Now this odd use of she:


"The then shallow she Earth as we know it; 
The then hallow she a sky for the sacred"

Wouldn't you just know it, the word sidhe is pronounced "she." In the context of the lyrics here it just happens that sidhe makes a lot more sense than she. 

Try this: "the then-shallow sidhe" (a spirit in shallow waters) and the "the then-hallow sidhe" (a spirit honored as sacred, re:"a sky for the sacred").

 If you didn't catch the update on the Chris Cornell post, here's the lowdown on one of the Siren's Celtic cousins:
In Celtic folklore, the leannán sí "Fairy-Lover" ...is a beautiful woman of the Aos Sí …who takes a human lover. 
Lovers of the leannán sídhe are said to live brief, though highly inspired, lives.   
The leannán sídhe is generally depicted as a beautiful muse who offers inspiration to an artist in exchange for their love and devotion; however, this frequently results in madness for the artist, as well as premature death.
She also granted the power of prophecy.

The leannán sídhe is related to the more well-known Banshee. 
But only certain families of historic lineage, or persons gifted with music and song, are attended by this spirit; for music and poetry are fairy gifts, and the possessors of them show kinship to the spirit race—therefore they are watched over by the spirit of life, which is prophecy and inspiration; and by the spirit of doom, which is the revealer of the secrets of death.
Sometimes the Banshee assumes the form of some sweet singing virgin of the family who died young, and has been given the mission by the invisible powers to become the harbinger of coming doom to her mortal kindred. Or she may be seen at night as a shrouded woman, crouched beneath the trees, lamenting with veiled face; or flying past in the moonlight, crying bitterly...
And Jesus, here's a five-star money-quote if ever I heard one. It basically synopsizes this entire story:
The Banshee even follows the old race across the ocean and to distant lands; for space and time offer no hindrance to the mystic power which is selected and appointed to bear the prophecy of death to a family.  
Which would probably be a good time to drop this old bit of snarkery on you:
All you need to know about the Cocteau Twins is that they make Siouxsie and the Banshees records, OK? -- Melody Maker 10/16/82
Of course, the wild howling of early Cocteaux is more akin to the Banshee myth than Siouxsie's rather modest vocal range. But the influence is plainly there (the Scots seemed to be particularly found of the Banshees). Especially in early songs like "Speak No Evil", which offer more hints of that unexpected connection to witchcraft and the occult (bonus factoid: Fraser used to go around in outfits decorated with chicken bones):

My soul I sold
I can't forget to ask
There's nothing movin' it again
Wolf thirst said me

This song is included on the Garlands CD, alongside 'Shallow than Halo'. Note that- again- we have references to both a river in a song about drowning in shallow water and to a wolf in a song about a daemonic pact. 

In that latter line, we also have a suggestion of death and a connection to water ("wolf thirst"). And just to remind anyone new to this conversation here:
Making a stop at the Wolf River channel of the Mississippi River, a fully clothed Buckley waded into the water and began swimming. 

Noise Rock-era Twins opening for Killing Joke in 1982 

EXHIBIT TWO: Alas Dies Laughing

On their next release after Garlands (the ironically titled Lullabies EP), we see two more songs whose titles also make semiotic connections between birds and water travel, namely the songs 'Feathers Oar Blades' and 'It's All But an Ark Lark'.  Sandwiched between them is one of the Cocteau Twins' most unsettling songs, 'Alas Dies Laughing', a song the early PiL would have been proud to call their own.

After two attempts at conventional choruses, the song breaks down into a bridge that has (a pre-transformation) Fraser moaning like the Pythia as the fumes rise. After the breakdown, she dispenses with the niceties and lapses into a repetitive chant about exactly how Alas died laughing:

Wake takes a lonely one
Wake takes a lonely one

Wake takes a lonely one

Wake takes a lonely one

Wake takes a lonely one

Wake takes a lonely one

Wake takes a
Wake takes a

Wake takes a

Wake takes a

Wake takes a

Wake takes a 

Jesus. And just to remind everyone again:
The wake of a passing boat sucked Buckley under, and he drowned. His body was recovered six days later, after it was seen by a riverboat passenger.
So sandwiched between two songs that refer to boats (and symbolically connect to the Mississippi via the bird imagery) we have a song about drowning. In a wake. 

Fifteen years before the singer's lost love died that very same way. .

Now is it just me or is this like something out of one of Philip K Dick's most unhinged fever dreams?  This is really just the tip of the iceberg though.




EXHIBIT THREE: It's All But an Ark Lark

Those aren't all the clues to be found on Lullabies. 'Ark Lark' also has some as well.

It's all for my, all for my, all for my

Charisma- divine gift- originally referred to extraordinary characteristics of the gods. In Christianity, charisma manifests itself in glossolalia and prophetic gifts.

Barking and Biting, on my starsails
Barking and Biting, on my starsails
Barking and Biting, on my starsails
Barking and Biting, on my starsails

We have references to a wolf (yes, wolves do bark) and water travel again.



And oh yeah- 'Song to the Siren' was first recorded for the Tim Buckley album Starsailor.

Wolf. Water. Buckley. Siren. 

Then this:

He's mocking both my lullabies 
Is Mockingbird my lullabies?
Is mocking both my lullabies 
Is Mockingbird my lullabies?



Mockingbirds are the state bird of Tennessee.


These lyrics from 'Feathers Oar Blades' are tantalizing as well.


Here comes the oppressors
Oppress, fallen, weaken
Feathers-oar blades
Spitting their feathers
Spitting out oar blades 
Spitting out oar blades 
Crestfallen
Weaken

There are the feathers and water connected again. That notion of spitting feathers (Mississippi) and oar blades (Wolf River Harbor) is gnawing at my skull as well.



EXHIBIT FOUR: THAT, UH, BAND NAME

The band's next album would be released on Halloween 1983. With original bassist Will Heggie having quit, the duo needed to find a replacement.

          Let Me Drown: Chris Cornell and the Siren (UPDATE)   


As I write this it's twenty years ago to the day that Jeff Buckley's body was fished out of the Mississippi River, where he drowned after being caught in the wake of a passing tug while swimming off Mud Island on May 29th. I had a feeling that something might happen in conjunction with this anniversary.

I just had no idea how momentous it would be.

Chris Cornell, who died around midnight May 18th, was very close to Buckley. So much so that he became a de facto curator of Buckley's legacy, acting as his spokesman as well as overseeing and promoting some of Buckley's various posthumous reissues. 

It's entirely possible that the upcoming anniversary was weighing heavily on Cornell's mind and could very well have contributed to the depression that led to his death. Cornell had a combination of drugs (including lorezepam, barbiturates and naloxone) in his system leading some to believe his death was accidental. But it's just as likely he was anesthetizing himself in anticipation of his final act.


Of course, Buckley wasn't the first singer to die with whom Cornell shared a close bond. Late in 2016 Cornell toured with Temple of the Dog, the supergroup he formed to pay tribute to Andrew Wood, with whom Cornell had a formed a close and intense bond. That Wood's death still haunted Cornell was made clear in an interview given while touring with TOTD:
“With all that’s been written about Temple of the Dog recently, it’s reminded me of the original meanings of those songs. Say Hello 2 Heaven, for example, was one of the songs I wrote directly for Andy Wood and the amount of times someone has requested I play that song for someone else who’s died have been numerous. 
That’s great that it’s become this anthem that makes somebody feel some comfort when they’ve lost someone, but recently I’ve become a little more possessive of the idea that this song was actually written for a specific guy and I haven’t forgotten that person. So I’ve been reminding myself and those in the audience where that song came from.”
“I don’t know if you can ever take him out of [my heart and soul].”
Seven years later he'd lose Buckley, who became his confidant while the two wrestled with the pressures of fame. Buckley idolized Cornell and the two spent a lot of time talking on the phone while on tour. These talks were so important to Cornell that he'd take Buckley's old telephone onstage with him during his solo tours.
In 2011 Cornell started turning up on stage to do solo shows with his red phone on a stool next to him. People would shout out what’s the phone for, one day he came clear and said Jeff’s mum gave it to him, Jeff owned that phone and he put it on stage hoping Jeff might call one night.”


Buckley had a lot in common with Andrew Wood- more than a bit androgynous, prolific, eclectic, magnetic. Buckley would heavily influence Cornell's solo career, and the former Soundgarden singer even adopted a weird adaptation of Buckley's hairstyle while promoting his first album Euphoria Morning, which featured a tribute to Buckley that saw Cornell channeling his late friend.

SEA, SWALLOW ME

Some have speculated if Buckley's own death was suicide but he often liked to swim in the Wolf River on hot days. He was swimming there with a friend while waiting for his band members to arrive at the Memphis airport. Apparently this kind of behavior was typical for Buckley. A friend said:
“The guy just made a big mistake — put some Led Zep on I’m going to go for a swim, I’ve got my Doc Martens on, what a great idea. He’d actually gone swimming on the Gold Coast with his girlfriend Joan (Wasser) the year before he died. His tour manager John Pope said to me everyone talks about him dying in the river in Memphis but we had to go and pluck him out of the surf. It’s not suicidal, it’s recklessness. That’s how he lived his live from what I could tell. He might have slowed down in his 30s if he made it.”
The Wolf River was once a popular swimming spot but as with Buckley its placid surface disguised a powerful current that led to drowning deaths:
All too often, those tranquil waters proved dangerous, however. More than one child drowned in the swiftly flowing stream, and in the 1950s, when yet another child — a young boy named Ronnie Jones — died there, city leaders decided enough was enough. Funds were raised to build a public swimming pool in Gaisman Park, so the children in North Memphis could have a safer place to play. 
As I've written about extensively, Buckley's death was the last act of a real-time Mystery Play, in which the gifted young singer found himself messing around with forces he didn't quite understand.
There's something else at play, some poetic -or mythic- ending, beneath the exoteric narrative. Something floating around the Symbolic Realm. I can just see it in Euripides and Aeschylus. 
It goes like this: A beautiful and talented young troubadour gets drunk on his own charisma and thoughtlessly toys with a delicate soul who is playing host to something that crossed over from the Other Side. Two thousand years ago, the omens and portents would have been recognized by everyone, from old women to schoolchildren. 
They would have warned him- don't break the Siren's heart.

SHE WILL DESTROY YOU



Indeed, Buckley's fatal error was to toy with the tender heart of Elizabeth Fraser, who had a hit with a cover of Buckley's father's "Song to the Siren." Buckley idolized Fraser and pursued her while she was on tour for the Cocteau Twins' album Four Calendar Cafe. The two enjoyed a brief but powerful affair, which also came when Fraser was at her most emotionally fragile and least able to manage the strange force possessing her.

But Buckley, young rock god, wasn't interested in anything serious:
Buckley had a reputation as a lover man, DNA from his body was kept in case of future paternity cases. 
“He liked the ladies, the ladies liked him. When people’s stars begin to rise there’s a lot of people attracted to them, like moths to a flame, Jeff was like that. At one of his memorial services all these crying women going ‘Oh, you too?’ He had relationships with a lot of ladies over a short period of time. Not just sexual, but close personal friendships. Some didn’t know each other. He squeezed a lot into 30 years and specifically into the last five or six years of his life. Once he got to New York for the tribute to his father, which is where his career started, it was non stop until the time of his death.”
Buckley might have been racking up conquests but Fraser had other ideas. She wrote a number of raw-wound songs about him and even produced a painfully-imploring shortform video addressed to him called Rilkean Dreams shortly after their split. 

It would carry a chilling foreshadowing:
A short film called Rilkean Dreams (Fraser compared Buckley to the poet Rilke) was made in 1994 as a promo for the EP, named after the heart-rending "Rilkean Heart." It's hardly a promo as much as it is a nakedly confessional video love-letter to Buckley, with Fraser explicitly apologizing in song for being too needy and clingy here and then accusing Buckley of being selfish and immature there. But it's the symbolism that gets you. 
The opening shot of Rilkean Dreams is of a slowly rushing river 
Followed by a sunset.  
If ever there was an argument for teaching the art of divining omens and portents in school, that's pretty much it.
Fraser would receive news of Buckley's death at a pivotal time:
The news that Buckley had disappeared – he drowned, swimming in the Wolf river in Memphis – came while Fraser was recording Teardrop with Massive Attack. "That was so weird," she says. "I'd got letters out and I was thinking about him. That song's kind of about him – that's how it feels to me anyway."
The death devastated Fraser and the Cocteau Twins split not long after, seemingly exorcising Fraser and sending her into a semi-retirement ever since. In a bizarre twist, her first solo record would be called 'Underwater.'

And then there's this:
 It seems she (Fraser) is haunted by guilt: for not being there for Buckley, for everything. As she puts it: "I need to forgive myself."
What an odd turn of phrase.

As I detailed in previous posts on this frankly bizarre story, Fraser's discography is rife with startling premonitions of this archetypal drama. Discussing the Cocteau Twins' seminal album Heaven or Las Vegas, we see this:
Omens ignored: OK, here's where this story gets insane. 
The 8th and 9th songs on this album are 'Wolf in the Breast' and the almost unbearably mournful 'Road, River and Rail'.  
Jeff Buckley drowned in the Wolf River in Memphis, which runs parallel to a railroad and is crossed by Interstate 40. 

The Wolf River is on the 89th Meridian West.

The neighborhood at the end of the Wolf River is named Frayser.
Further a reader informed me that the spot where Buckley entered the Wolf River was near the Bayou Gayoso. Fraser also sings the lyric "from out of the bayou" in 'Road, River and Rail.'

Why is any of this relevant? Well, Fraser is an interesting woman. The lyrics to the first Cocteau Twins album (Garlands, 1982) are absolutely soaked in the iconography of witchcraft and the occult. 

Not to mention a song about a river called "Shallow then Halo." As in you're in shallow water (like Buckley actually was) and then you drown.  

In 1982

Fifteen years before Buckley's death.

And soon after Fraser underwent a somewhat startling transformation:


The lyrics to Garlands speak to a more-than-casual familiarity with witchcraft on someone's part, presumably Fraser's. In that context, it should be noted that the singer underwent a rather stunning metamorphosis from 1982 to 1983. 
Her appearance, her wardrobe, her voice, her lyrical style, and her comportment all underwent a radical change. Gone were the punk togs; the provocative leather minis, fishnet stockings and high-heeled boots and in their place were billowy, neo-Victorian frocks (Fraser always wore long sleeves to hide her tattoos). Her lyrics began evolving towards the near-total glossolalia of Treasure, though the lyrics on Head Over Heels still retain the violence and menace of Garlands. 
Even allowing for the effect of makeup, her face (most noticably, her irises) seemed to change- she looked like an entirely new person. You can see it in the live videos as well, where lighting and makeup have less power to disguise (or did back then).
Those are some Thomas Jerome Newton looking eyes

Remarkably, Fraser herself* said she believed she was channeling another force or entity in a 1984 interview. She also claimed her music "wrote itself " (shades of 'Stairway to Heaven'). 

And you know what? I believe her. Without question. Everyone seemed to sense it at the time.

ALL MY FRIENDS ARE INDIANS

Now what does any of this have to do with Chris Cornell, aside from his shared association with Jeff Buckley?

Well, just like all the Siren symbolism that connects to Jeff Buckley's death, it just so happens that Chris Cornell died just minutes away from the location of a very similar legend:
The Indian demi-god, Sleeping Bear, had a daughter so beautiful that he kept her out of the sight of men in a covered boat that swung on Detroit River, tied to a tree on shore; but the Winds, having seen her when her father had visited her with food, contended so fiercely to possess her that the little cable was snapped and the boat danced on to the keeper of the water-gates, who lived at the outlet of Lake Huron. 
The keeper, filled with admiration for the girl's beauty, claimed the boat and its charming freight, but he had barely received her into his lodge when the angry Winds fell upon him, buffeting him so sorely that he died, and was buried on Peach Island (properly Isle au Peche), where his spirit remained for generations—an oracle sought by Indians before emprise in war. 
His voice had the sound of wind among the reeds, and its meanings could not be told except by those who had prepared themselves by fasting and meditation to receive them. Before planning his campaign against the English, Pontiac fasted here for seven days to "clear his ear" and hear the wisdom of the sighing voice. 
But the Winds were not satisfied with the slaying of the keeper. They tore away his meadows and swept them out as islands. They smashed the damsel's boat and the little bark became Belle Isle. Here Manitou placed the girl, and set a girdle of vicious snakes around the shore to guard her and to put a stop to further contests. These islands in the straits seem to have been favorite places of exile and theatres of transformation.  
Myths and Legends of our Own Land, by Charles M. Skinner (1896)
So we have a variation on the Siren/Lorelei myth here, right near the Fox Theater. 

Jesus. What are the odds?

• We have a victim known for his powerful voice. Right near the Fox Theater.

• We have glossolalia as we have with Elizabeth Fraser.

• We also have a "girdle of vicious snakes." On the last Cocteau Twins album Fraser sings of a "Serpentskirt." 

Fraser posed naked for the cover of that album, which featured a number of songs written about Jeff Buckley (Fraser was clearly still smitten, as this performance indicates) , dedicating "Love and a Thousandfold Rose" to him.  Buckley answered her with the song "Thousandfold", written in Memphis. It included the line "Long time ago I'd died and gone."

• Like Mud Island, Belle Isle is located in a river off a major city. 

• 'Road, River and Rail' not only mentions the bayous but also namedrops the Isle de la Cite in Paris. Both Memphis and Detroit trace their establishment to French colonists. 




• And Jesus, I don't even know how to say it- OK, try this: CHRIS CORNELL RECORDED A SONG CALLED 'THE KEEPER'. In it he sings, "I am the keeper."

Are you getting all this now?


Strangely, Chris Cornell is credited as the author on several different lyric sites of 'Siren Song', written by Cocteau superfan Robert Smith. The lyrics are clearly inspired by Tim Buckley's 'Song to the Siren' and reference "crystal eyes." It also includes the couplet "She sang "Give me your life or I must fly away/And you will never hear this song again."

What's likely is that Cornell covered the song during a concert (Temple of the Dog covered the Cure's 'Fascination Street') and it was mistakenly credited to him by fans. The synchronicity of it all (not to mention "Let Me Drown") and how it seemed to ensnare him is par for the course in the apparently still-unfolding drama of the Siren. 

UPDATE: Now this is going from insane to downright arcane. We saw the juxtaposition of 'Wolf in the Breast' and 'Road, River and Rail' acting as a prophecy of Jeff Buckley's death on the Wolf River. A body of water which- again- terminates at a place called Frayser. We saw the deeply disturbing premonitions- the river and underwater footage running throughout Fraser's heartbroken petitions to Buckley- in Rilkean Dreams. 

And of course the title itself could be interpreted as a reference to the water of the Wolf River in the lungs.

But there's a little detail I overlooked- the lyrics to 'Wolf in the Breast', at least some of which are in English. Now you have to be careful with the lyrics posted on the Internet- they're nearly all guesswork by fans and don't bear any relation to what Fraser actually wrote

That being said, a phrase recognizably repeated throughout is "I'll revenge all I need that day." 

Mind you, this is a song that seems mostly concerned with taking care of a baby.

Now of course, Fraser herself was never consciously aware of this. She hadn't even met Jeff Buckley at this time. But by her own admission she wasn't always in control of the songwriting process, that the songs often wrote themselves. Who may have assisted in this process then? I guess we'll never know.

But given the Celtic extraction of the main players in the drama it's worth looking into the myth of the Leanán Sidhe: 

In Celtic folklore, the leannán sí "Fairy-Lover"[1] (Scottish Gaelic: leannan sìth, Manx: lhiannan shee; [lʲan̴̪-an ˈʃiː]) is a beautiful woman of the Aos Sí ("people of the barrows") who takes a human lover. Lovers of the leannán sídhe are said to live brief, though highly inspired, lives.   
The leannán sídhe is generally depicted as a beautiful muse who offers inspiration to an artist in exchange for their love and devotion; however, this frequently results in madness for the artist, as well as premature death.
Like the Siren, the Leanán Sidhe is said to live at the bottom of the ocean.

UPDATE: It should also be kept in mind that Fraser was recording "Teardrop" with Massive Attack when Buckley died, a song she wrote about their breakup. The lyrics include lines about "black flowers blossom," a common symbol for death.


UPDATE: A Jesus Christ Pose in Detroit? Soundboard recording of Wolf in the Breastfrom 1990. Uploaded in 2015.

UPDATE: Our Gordon reminds us that Memphis- Egypt- literally had a Temple of the Dog, ie., Anubis.

*Fraser was studying Theosophy and Anthrosophy in 2012 at Emerson College, Sussex.

Again, David Lynch tried to license Elizabeth Fraser's version of 'Song to the Siren' for Blue Velvet but was unable to. He later used it in Lost Highway.


          Chris Cornell: The Muses Choose Broken Vessels   

Jesus Christ Pose

The Alternative Rock explosion of the early 90s was fueled by a wave of great singers. After a lost decade of metallic shriekers and New Wave gurglers-- which some call the 80s-- there was suddenly an embarrassment of strong voices revitalizing rock music, especially hard rock music. 

Most of these had cut their teeth on punk and hardcore and subsequently learned to trim back the fat and excess that torpedoed their 70s forebears. They also learned to step around the wretched excesses that ran the 80s metal explosion into the ground; cookie-cutter sameness, image over substance, half-written songs, cliche piled on cliche.

Alternative rock would itself get watered down and xeroxed into oblivion, especially as careerists figured out a way to counterfeit the formula (I'm looking at you, Candlebox and Seven Mary Three) and record companies signed up every pseudo-grunge band they could find (and strong-armed other acts to hop on the bandwagon). 

By the end of the 90s it all devolved into an obnoxious fratboy rock (I'm looking at you, Limp Bizkit and Creed) that reached its inevitable apotheosis at the disastrous Woodstock '99 (held on a decommissioned military base). 

But before that all went down some of the most vital and exciting rock music of all time was produced.

Alternative Rock, or more accurately GenX Rock, has taken its place in the classic rock canon. Tracks by Nirvana, Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are snuggled in tightly between all the Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith and Pink Floyd cuts overplayed on FM radio. But five of the most remarkable vocalists of that era- Kurt Cobain, Layne Staley, Jeff Buckley, Scott Weiland and now Chris Cornell--- are lost to us.

And the 9-ton Tyrannosaurus lurking in the back of the concert hall is that modern plague, clinical depression. It's a subject I'm all too familiar with. It's the witches' curse on Generation X.

Chris Cornell was an enigmatic figure among the Grunge pantheon. If Kurt Cobain was the snotty punk, Eddie Vedder the self-serious poet, Layne Staley the tortured howler and Scott Weiland the Joker in the pack, Cornell was an entirely unique presence, as was Soundgarden. Tall, lean but ripped, possessing an odd, androgynous beauty and an enviable black mane, he came across as aloof, Olympian. His piercing, multi-octave voice felt like a weapon,  more like an incarnation of Apollo the Destroyer than Ozzy Osbourne.

Similarly, Soundgarden was perhaps the most effective translator of the power of early Black Sabbath yet, but were brainy, difficult, challenging. 

They were unmistakably Heavy Metal-- in the original, Blue Cheer definition of the term --but didn't shriek the usual ditties about dick size and date rape. It was pretty clear they had no time for that kind of nonsense (See "Big Dumb Sex"). It was clear they took as much inspiration from King Crimson and Black Flag as from Zeppelin and Sabbath. 

Their first major single was an epic environmentalist jeremiad that goofed on Metal's "kill-your-mother-music" reputation by screaming "you're going to kill your mother" in the refrain. The mother here being Mother Earth, of course.

Predictably, Chris Cornell's corpse was literally not cold yet before the modern ambulance chasers of the Internet were declaring it was obviously an Illuminati sacrifice. One hilarious YouTard video went on about how there was no other explanation for Cornell's death, that he'd have no reason to kill himself. 

Obviously someone who never actually listened to a single stitch of Soundgarden.

Like Ian Curtis-- who hung himself 37 years almost to the day before-- many of Cornell's lyrics read like suicide notes. After all, this is a man who kicked off one of his biggest hits with the couplet "Nothing seems to kill me/ No matter how hard I try." Two of his other big hits "Black Hole Sun" and "Fell on Black Days" are practically master classes in the art of expressing the utter hopelessness ("'Neath the black the sky looks dead") that can overtake you when a depressive episode strikes. 

The same goes for Soundgarden's breakout hit, "Outshined," practically a hymn about searching for a crack of sunlight while waiting a dire episode out. "The Day I Tried to Live" is even more astonishing, a documentary retelling of those mornings when depression- aggression turned inwards- becomes aggression turned on the world outside.

Cornell was very candid about his struggles with depression. In an interview with Rolling Stone he discussed the inspiration for "Fell on Black Days":
This reissue includes several versions of "Fell on Black Days," which is pretty dark. What inspired it? 

Well, I had this idea, and I had it for a long time. I'd noticed already in my life where there would be periods where I would feel suddenly, "Things aren't going so well, and I don't feel that great about my life." Not based on any particular thing. I'd sort of noticed that people have this tendency to look up one day and realize that things have changed. There wasn't a catastrophe. There wasn't a relationship split up. Nobody got in a car wreck. Nobody's parents died or anything. The outlook had changed, while everything appears circumstantially the same. That was the song I wanted to write about. 
No matter how happy you are, you can wake up one day without any specific thing occurring to bring you into a darker place, and you'll just be in a darker place anyway. To me, that was always a terrifying thought, because that's something that – as far as I know – we don't necessarily have control over. So that was the song I wanted to write. 
It wasn't just for the gloom-metal gimmick of Soundgarden that Cornell laid bare his struggles. They crept into tracks he recorded with Audioslave- the supergroup made up of Cornell and the musicians of Rage Against the Machine, including their biggest hit "Like a Stone."

Cornell was also candid about his history with clinical depression, which he traced back to a somewhat hardscrabble upbringing. 
Cornell abstained from drug use for a time following an adverse reaction to the hallucinogenic PCP, but the frightening, dissociative experience, coupled with the trauma of his parent’s divorce, plunged him into a severe depression. “I went from being a daily drug user at 13 to having bad drug experiences and quitting drugs by the time I was 14 and then not having any friends until the time I was 16. There was about two years where I was more or less agoraphobic and didn’t deal with anybody, didn’t talk to anybody, didn’t have any friends at all.”
And clearly showing that he also struggled with suicidal ideation, Cornell foreshadowed his own end in an interview with Guitar.com, saying, “You’ll think somebody has run-of-the-mill depression, and then the next thing you know, they’re hanging from a rope." 

Writer Kate Paulk wrote about the black dog of depression recently and offered up an apt metaphor lifted from pop culture:
Let’s start by clearing up one thing. Sadness, grieving in response to a loss… that is not depression. It’s sadness. Grief. It passes with time, and even at its worst there are moments of joy and hope. Depression is not like that. Everything is poisoned. 
J. K. Rowling is describing depression when she describes the Dementors and their impact. Get too near a Dementor and every good feeling, every happy memory will be sucked out of you. 
This is precisely what depression does. There is an absence of hope, an inability to believe that there can ever be anything positive in your life again. That isn’t sadness or grief, and it isn’t necessarily expressed by tears.
Cornell was also a substance abuser and dove headlong into an opioid addiction after Soundgarden split in 1997. It may well have come from a chronic pain issue, closely related to chronic depression: 
People with depression show abnormalities in the body’s release of its own, endogenous, opioid chemicals. Depression tends to exacerbate pain—it makes chronic pain last longer and hurts the recovery process after surgery. 
“Depressed people are in a state of alarm,” said Mark Sullivan, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Washington. “They’re fearful, or frozen in place. There’s a heightened sense of threat.” That increased threat sensitivity might also be what heightens sensations of pain. 
Opioids certainly aren't very effective painkillers in the long term but they are very effective anesthetics when you're struggling with chronic depression. 
Opioids treat pain, but depression and pain are often comorbid, and some antidepressants relieve neuropathic pain even in the absence of depression. Depression involves dysfunction in monoamine systems, the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, and hippocampal neurogenesis, but could it also be rooted in a deficit of endorphins, or even an endopharmacological withdrawal state? 
Before the modern antidepressant era, depression was often treated with opiates—with a sometimes heavy price of addiction.  
The real hell of opioids is that they rewire your brain, causing the natural processes that regulate depression and euphoria to atrophy. Depression can skyrocket when you stop taking them, since your brain basically forgot how to produce sufficient amounts of the neurotransmitters that manage your moods.
u-agonists relieve depression-like behavior acutely, but tolerance develops, and depression is worse on withdrawal from long-term administration. Delta-agonists appear to improve mood, while kappa-agonists worsen it. There is evidence that opioid dysfunction accounts for lack of pleasure in depression, while problems with dopamine impair motivation. Opioid systems, then, participate in many mood-related functions. They are examples of evolutionary repurposing of neurotransmitters that originally evolved for one purpose to meet a variety of other needs.


Cornell's family is understandably shocked by his death. His widow blames an elevated dose of the tranquilizer Ativan for the somewhat disturbing performance he put on in Detroit and his resulting suicide. 
Cornell died on the evening May 17th, 2017, shortly after performing a concert with Soundgarden in Detroit, MI. His death was met with shock by many; his representative described it as "sudden and unexpected," adding that the singer's family will be "working closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause." 
Hours after his death was reported, the Wayne County Medical Examiner's office ruled Chris' death a suicide by hanging. According to Us Weekly, a family friend had found Cornell on the bathroom floor of his MGM Grand hotel room. ABC News also reported that two Detroit papers claimed that Cornell was found with "a band around his neck," though Detroit Police spokesman Michael Woody could not confirm that information. 
Cornell's wife, Vicky, released a statement on his death on Friday, May 19th, 2017, in which she cast doubts that his suicide was intentional. In fact, on the day of his death, Vicky claimed they had "discussed plans for a vacation over Memorial Day and other things we wanted to do." "When we spoke after the show, I noticed he was slurring his words; he was different. When he told me he may have taken an extra Ativan or two, I contacted security and asked that they check on him," she said. 
"What happened is inexplicable and I am hopeful that further medical reports will provide additional details," she continued. "I know that he loved our children and he would not hurt them by intentionally taking his own life."
I think the fact that Cornell ad-libbed verses from "In My Time of Dying" over a rendition of "Slaves and Bulldozers" during the closing encore in Detroit  gives a fairly compelling signal that he had resolved himself to a course of action that night. Despite an incredibly shaky performance he seemed in good spirits to some, all too common with depressives resolved to suicide. But others noticed he seemed irritable and unfocused, forgetting the lyrics. He complimented the Detroit audience and then said, "I feel sorry for the next city."

An extra Ativan or two is unlikely to induce suicide. But long-term use of it (it's recommended that lorezepam-- a member of the highly-problematic benzodiazepene family-- be used only a short term basis) might. And it's very possible he took an extra dose of the drug to gird his loins for a decision he had already made:
Suicidality: Benzodiazepines may sometimes unmask suicidal ideation in depressed patients, possibly through disinhibition or fear reduction. The concern is that benzodiazepines may inadvertently become facilitators of suicidal behavior. Therefore, lorazepam should not be prescribed in high doses or as the sole treatment in depression, but only with an appropriate antidepressant.
Depression and suicidal ideation go hand in glove. And there are all kinds of psychiatric drugs that tell you upfront that suicidal ideation is a major side effect. How that doesn't keep them off the market is a mystery to me. 

The other problem is that people who obsess on suicide usually don't talk about it with people close to them since they realize that confessing to it will very likely act to derail what they have been planning. And again, professionals will tell you that very often when a depressive has resolved themselves to suicide they can often seem very cheerful and upbeat, since they believe that their suffering will soon end. 

So the question becomes if a rich, celebrated and handsome rock star can't find a reason to stay alive, what hope is there for the rest of us? Well, it's a lot more complicated than that. Aside from his struggles with clinical depression, Cornell was also beset by tragedy, losing people closest to him to early death. 

The first of these was his roommate Andrew Wood, the flamboyant singer for legendary Seattle band Mother Love Bone who died of a heroin overdose in 1990. Cornell was so shaken by Wood's death that he formed a defacto supergroup with members of MLB and recorded the now-legendary Temple of the Dog album as a tribute, which produced the grunge anthem "Hunger Strike" (featuring a duet between Cornell and future Pearl Jam star Eddie Vedder).

Temple of the Dog in fact led to the formation of Pearl Jam, facilitated by the introduction of Vedder to the Seattle scenesters by drummer Jack Irons, a member of the original Red Hot Chili Peppers who also played with Pearl Jam and Joe Strummer, among an army of others. Strangely enough, Irons has his own struggles with depression. As did Joe Strummer, for that matter. 

The Muses choose broken vessels. It's a Secret Sun truism. 

Cornell was so shaken by Wood's death that it would haunt Soundgarden songs as well.
The song you workshopped the most was "Like Suicide." In the liner notes, you say it kind of became a metaphor for how you were feeling at the time about late Mother Love Bone frontman Andy Wood. 
Yeah, the lyrics were actually this simple moment that happened to me. I don't know that I ever directly related it to Andy, though there are a lot of songs that people probably don't know where there were references to him or how I was feeling about what happened with him. I just think that that was something that happened to me that was a traumatic thing and that I had a difficult time resolving it. I still never really have. I still live with it, and that's one of the moments where maybe in some ways it could have shown up, but I'm not really sure specifically where.
Another body blow was the 1994 death of Kurt Cobain, another friend who died in time to cast a pall of existential darkness over Soundgarden's epochal Superunknown album, released a month before Cobain's death. So even as Soundgarden were enjoying their moment, death and tragedy revisited Cornell. (Cobain had his own issues, exacerbated by years of opioid abuse, but there are those of us who don't buy the suicide angle in this particular case).

It had to hurt, especially since Cobain had told Cornell that Soundgarden has inspired him to form Nirvana in the first place. 

Superunknown was an instant classic, easily one of the top 10 Hard Rock albums ever recorded, hammering you with one killer track after another. Along with Stone Temple Pilots' Purple album, Pearl Jam's Vitalogy and several others it established 1994 as the watershed for Alernative Rock, despite Cobain's death and Nirvana's dissolution. 

Soundgarden's 1996 follow-up Down on the Upside, failed to capitalize on its predecessor's momentum, and seem to showcase a band uncertain of direction and sense of purpose. No one was really surprised when Soundgarden broke up the following year. Oddly enough the breakup seemed to go down almost exactly three years after Kurt Cobain's death. 



But Tragedy wasn't finished with Cornell yet. Shortly after Soundgarden broke up Cornell would lose another soulmate.
He lost two friends within the space of a few years. Cobain died in 1994 and, three years later, singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley, practically a brother to Cornell, drowned while swimming in a tributary of the Mississippi in Tennessee.

"Kurt was fairly quiet and introverted most of the time. Jeff was the opposite. He was very much full of life and had a lot to say. He was somebody in love with experiencing everything. Within a very short time, he had all these famous old rock stars coming to his shows. Which put a a lot of pressure on him. People talked about his concerts the way they used to talk about Hendrix: they'd sit there, wide-eyed, telling you stories about him. He definitely had an aura. It's impossible to say what it is exactly a guy like that has, that is so attractive to other people. But he had more of it than anyone I had ever met."
Of course, this brings all this squarely into the Secret Sun wheelhouse. Cornell would be haunted by Buckley's death, writing the aching "Wave Goodbye" (in which he seems to channel Buckley's ghost) for his first solo album and acting as a de facto executor-slash-curator for Buckley's posthumous releases.



This tells us a lot, since the 20th anniversary of Jeff Buckley's death is coming up fast and furious. Cornell showed he was clearly still haunted by Buckley's passing when he brought the late singer's old landline phone onstage with him during his 2011 acoustic solo tour.
KALAMAZOO — I've had several people ask about the red phone that was on stage during Chris Cornell's 130-minute set at the Kalamazoo State Theatre last week. Cornell never addressed it during the show and it never rang, so I didn't think much of it. After another reader asked Monday, I looked into it. 
According to a representative with the New York-based Press Here Publicity, which handled promotion for Cornell's solo tour, the phone belonged to singer/songwriter Jeff Buckley.
As Secret Sun readers will remember, the last song Jeff Buckley sang before his death was "Whole Lotta Love", a blues standard that Led Zeppelin turned into what one critic called "a themonuclear rape."

And it would be "In My Time of Dying," another old blues standard that Led Zeppelin turned into a jackhammering stomper that acted as Cornell's own self-elegy. This, along with the timing of Ian Curtis's own death by hanging in 1980 seems a bit too synchronized for Cornell's death to be some kind of mad whim because he took too much Ativan.  As painful as it might be to admit, it seems as if this was probably a very long time coming. After all, this is the man who wrote "Pretty Noose."

So it seems apparent that it wasn't the Illuminati but in fact the demon possession of depression that took Chris Cornell away from his family. With many of his closest friends gone and the glory days of the 90s more and more a fading memory in a world itself gripped by chronic depression, I can't say I'm surprised by the suicide ruling.  

The life of the rock star in 2017 is a galaxy away from the golden age of the rock star in 1977. It's become a grueling job in the age of streaming and piracy, since you need to make all your money on the road now. Spending your life traveling from one brutalist concrete box to another when you're fifty-two is surely a lot less appealing than when you're twenty-two.

If there's any good to come of this tragedy it's to understand that depression isn't some kind of scarlet letter, it's an inevitable result of what one scientist called "the greatest blind experiment in history," the bombardment of our brains and bodies with every manner of stimulus and stress imaginable, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and then some.

Having spend my teenage years in the white-hot cauldron of hardcore punk I can tell you that that kind of hyperstimulation had -- how do I put this? --less than a salutary effect on a lot of people I knew. Seeing that same formula translated into the mainstream culture goes a long way in explaining why depression has become the great mass epidemic of our time. Now it's claimed another trophy and we're all the poorer for it.

But as the Greeks and Romans once said, vita brevis ars longa

French philosophers once said that the invention of motion pictures had conquered death, that people would now live on forever once they were recorded. I guess the same goes for recorded music as well. So I think it's safe to say that after three decades of music, Chris Cornell has earned his place among the immortals. Let's hope someone learns something from his story.


          Reel Paganism::The "Folk Horror" Revival    

Ah, those Years of Seven. We looked at the significant anniversaries in the World of Weird this Year of Seven is marking, from Heaven's Gate and the Phoenix Lights to the Harmonic Convergence to the releases of Star Wars and Close Encounters of the First Kind. As it happens, there's another major anniversary on the docket this year and that's the birth of the modern "NeoPagan" movement.
Fifty years ago, in 1967, three organizations were formed which would have a profound impact on the shape of contemporary Paganism: Frederick Adams founded Feraferia, a wilderness mystery religion; Aidan Kelly and others formed the New Reformed Order of the Golden Dawn, an eclectic witchcraft tradition; and Tim (Oberon) Zell filed for incorporation of the Church of All Worlds, which was based on the fictional religion described in Robert Heinlein’s novel, Stranger in a Strange Land.
As the Church of All Worlds shows, the NeoPagan movement was born out of the rising Geek insurgency, out of a fermenting sub-subculture in which Dune, Star Trek and Lord of the Rings had well and colonized the imaginations of the young and dateless.

The crossover would become so successful that the strict atheism and naturalism that had once been de rigeur in sci-fi (and fandom in general) would soon be put on its back foot by this new Mysticism, a current that would revolutionize pop culture with the runaway success of Star Wars.

NeoPaganism occupied a fair bit of real estate in the collective mind of Fandom but has never been the upstart mass movement its adherents might have you believe. It probably peaked as a movement in the 1990s (with Buffy, the Vampire Slayer) and, if the current alarm bells being rung in the NeoPaganism blogosphere are any indication, has been receding ever since. So much so that many NeoPagans believe the jig is finally up.

Contemporary Paganism isn’t an institution, but we do have institutions, and many of them are  struggling to survive.  Cherry Hill Seminary announced last year that it might not be able to continue its programming.  CUUPS is hardly thriving.  The Pagan Community Statement on the Environment, which is quite possibly the single largest expression of Pagan voices ever, has not yet collected a mere 10,000 signatures in the two years since it was published.  And, as far as I can tell, none of the organizers of Pagan festivals and conferences have reported significant growth in recent years. These are just a few examples of Pagan institutions that I have been involved with to one degree or another over the years.
In Britain, where so much of the Wicca and NeoPaganism we recognize today was born, the situation seems pretty much the same. NeoPaganism is struggling there too, ironically as the current Chaos Magick revival is picking up steam.
 I’ve been told that the number of registered members of the Pagan Federation has gone down for the first time. At the Harvest Moon Conference in 2016, Melissa Harrington confessed that she felt that this decline in active participation was indicative of Paganism “going underground” again. Most of the Pagan Federation events I’ve been to recently have shown a similar demographic spread to OBOD ones. 
My concern is that the declining number of young participants in the Pagan community in Britain, and the general diminution of those taking an active role in the community as a whole, indicates that that growth has stalled. British Paganism—as a subculture and as a movement—is in trouble.
I'm not at all surprised by this. I'd wager that most NeoPagans had some kind of traditional religious upbringing, which made them at least casually familiar with the basics of ritual and theology. With traditional religion a fading memory among NeoPaganism's mission field, it becomes harder than ever to attract people to the surrogate community that NeoPaganism promises. 

But there's also the problem of the movement failing to deliver what it promises:
What is in decline, then, is something quite specific—the Pagan Movement; a collection of organisations, publications, ceremonial genres, training courses. That collection is no longer feeding the appetite of the general public for the magical.
Then there's the prickly issue of sectarianism. NeoPaganism bears only a glancing resemblance to the ancient variety, but it's chock full of the kind of perpetual fragmentation that a Pagan in ancient Alexandria might have been sick of. One blogger is even pushing an atheist strand of NeoPaganism:
Atheopaganism is post-Belief religion. It is evidence-based spirituality rooted in real-world, positive, life-affirming values. It gives us what religion is good at giving us, and avoids trying to do what science can clearly do better. 
I believe it is in broad strokes what succeeding generations will practice in growing numbers. It is what will give meaning and build community for people who have left behind the ideas of gods and magic.
Yeah, good luck with that. After all, discarding your traditional core tenets has worked out so well for the so-called Mainline denominations. 

Like the churches that so many NeoPagans grew out of, the movement is looking to political activism to "stay relevant." But people interested in activism now have a endless buffet of NGOs and pressure groups to choose from, and most activists today tend to see any flavor of spirituality as regressive and impolite. Which may be why most Mainline Christian denominations are now fading into history.

But a strong argument could be made that NeoPaganism is fading because the overall culture has been so effectively paganized. If that's true, then where do you go from there?



 Scarlet Imprint publisher Peter Gray was a bit ahead of the curve when he announced the impending death of NeoPaganism three years back. And he sees the same trends at work- Neopaganism is fading because it's no longer needed:
There is no halting the decline of the initiatic witchcraft traditions of Gardner or Sanders, nor the collapse of neo-paganism. The reason? To use the correct mimetic formula: Because Internet. People are having their needs met by the online simulacra of witchcraft. Those who are seeking witchcraft simply do not have to hunt out lineages, everything is before them in the digital form that has socialised them while their parents paid more attention to their smartphones.
Gray calls for the "rewilding"of Witchcraft, for the art to return to its outlaw roots. He wants to recapture the danger of Witchcraft, which he believes- rightly- has been traded away by Wiccans and their fellow travelers. 

But the question then becomes how wild are you willing to be? Witches are killed on on a fairly regular basis in developing countries because they're seen as dangerous and taboo. In our anything-goes culture what exactly do you have to do to recapture that outlaw sheen? It's no small question. Why?
Well, because the Gardnerian Book of Shadows tells us exactly how dark ancient witchcraft and Paganism could get: 
Priests know this well; and by their auto-da-fé, with the victims' pain and terror (the fires acting much the same as circles), obtained much power. Of old the Flagellants certainly evoked power, but through not being confined in a circle much was lost. The amount of power raised was so great and continuous that anyone with knowledge could direct and use it; and it is most probable that the classical and heathen sacrifices were used in the same way. There are whispers that when the human victim was a willing sacrifice, with his mind directed on the Great Work and with highly skilled assistants, wonders ensued but of this I would not speak.”  
Which brings us to the Folk Horror revival.

Back to the recent Beltane Fire Festival.
The event, first organised in the mid-1980s, marks the ending of winter and is a revival of the ancient Celtic and Pagan festival of Beltane, the Gaelic name for the month of May.
Thousands of spectators gathered on Calton Hill in the Scottish capital to watch drummers, fire dancers, physical theatre and a large bonfire.
During the event, the Green Man is killed as god of winter and reborn as spring to consort with the May Queen.
This is a big deal in Scotland. And other types of ancient festival revivals have been popping up in Britain over the past several years as well, particularly in provincial towns looking to drum up tourism. 

But do note that in the ancient Beltane festivals the Green Man was actually killed as a sacrifice to the gods of the crops. The Edinburgh festival obviously stops short of this, but this is like trading out wine for grape juice at communion. The real McCoy is baked into the rite itself and soaks through to the surface. It can't help but.
So what does this all have to do with the so-called Folk Horror revival? Well, the folk component of the genre doesn't refer to old Joan Baez records. It draws upon the idea of ancient folkways- often those centering on human sacrifice- bubbling back up to the surface and violently intruding on the lives of unwitting cosmopolitans.
Unlike other sub-genres, folk horror’s very form is difficult to convey. Despite what its simplistic description implies – from the emphasis on the horrific side of folklore to a very literal horror of people – the term’s fluctuating emphasis makes it difficult to pin down outside of a handful of popular examples. 
The term first came to prominence in 2010 when Mark Gatiss used it as an umbrella theme to describe a number of films in his A History of Horror documentary for BBC4. Yet the term was used in the programme in reference to an earlier interview with the director Piers Haggard for Fangoria magazine in 2004, in which Haggard suggests of his own film The Blood on Satan’s Claw (1971) that he “was trying to make a folk horror film”.
The revival encompasses a number of films and novels but regards three British films as the sacred texts of the genre:
The trilogy, now often known under the banner of the ‘Unholy Trinity’, consist of Michael Reeves’ Witchfinder General (1968), Piers Haggard’s The Blood on Satan’s Claw and Robin Hardy’s The Wicker Man (1973). Though their imagery has since defined all things “olde” and “wyrd” about Britain (see the cover of Sight & Sound, August 2010), it is in their narratives where folk horror becomes defined.  
All three films work through an emphasis on landscape which subsequently isolates its communities and individuals, skewing the dominant moral and theological systems enough to cause violence, human sacrifices, torture and even demonic and supernatural summonings.  
The Witchfinder General traumatized me when I watched it on Creature Double Feature way back in the day. Unlike most of the other Folk Horror landmarks it's based on real-life events.
HP Lovecraft's shadow looms over the genre, whether he likes it or not. There are obviously significant differences but a lot of his stories seem to center on city-slickers dealing with hideous eruptions of the primeval in decaying rural outposts. Lovecraft is often criticized for his racism but the truth is he didn't seem to like much of anybody outside his perceived social set.

From "The Call of Cthulhu" to "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" to "The Festival" it's pretty obvious exactly where Lovecraft was coming from. Lovecraft was terrified that modern civilization was nothing more than a fragile veneer, ready to flake away under the slightest existential pressure. And cults and cultic practices were like the monster under Lovecraft's bed, always ready to pounce once the lights went out.

(In this context, Stuart Gordon's fever-dream film version of Dagon could be seen as an outlier within the Folk Horror genre).
Lovecraft enjoyed his own revival in the 1960s and one can't help but wonder what kind of effect he had on the emerging Folk Horror genre. The Wicker Man is often seen today as a kind of one-off but in fact it was following very closely in the footsteps of earlier films. 



The Witches, partly written by Nigel Kneale, is an early example of the type as is Eye of the Devil, which made a star of Sharon Tate. In the kind of hideous synchronicity that follows all potent art like a lost puppy,   Tate would become a sacrifice to the kind of cult that probably haunted Lovecraft's nightmares.  

Both films, released in 1966 and 1967 respectively, worked the theme of an outsider to a rural community discovering grisly ancient practices lurking beneath a placid rustic surface. Eye of the Devil, like The Wicker Man, centers on crop failure and the need of the community to kill its ritual king to appease the gods of the fields. So the fields were already well-furrowed by the time Anthony Shaffer and Robin Hardy had their brainstorm.


Thomas Tryon's 1973 novel Harvest Home was adapted into a TV miniseries in the late 70s and taps in the same vein: in this case a New York family moves to a small town and discovers that their new neighbors still practice the ancient Celtic folkways. Since it's based on an American novel it's usually overlooked by Folk Horror revivalists, but it's a solid example of the type. Maybe one of the more potent examples, actually. Shame it's not better known.
There are variations on the theme to be found during this same Golden Age (the late 60s to the early 70s). The Shuttered Room, based on a story HP Lovecraft cowrote with August Derleth is a variation on the type, as is Sam Peckinpah's Straw Dogs, which starred Dustin Hoffman as an American married to a British woman played by Susan George. They move to the rural English village where the George character grew up and are menaced by a gang of local thugs. Straw Dogs was remade in 2011 and moved to the rural South. Of course.



A more recent example of the type is Kill List, an absolutely extraordinary film that has you believing you're watching one kind of British drama before pulling the rug out from under your feet and landing you in quite another altogether. I'm not going to say too much more about it since you really should see it for yourself.
But The Wicker Man (also remade, badly, in 2006) remains the King of the Folk Horror Crop. The film hardly seems like a horror movie for most of its running time, more like a quirky musical comedy, kind of a warped Brigadoon. And it's based in ancient Celtic rituals, or at least legends of ancient Celtic rituals.
The idea of a “wickerman” is reminiscent of references in both Irish legend and the second branch of the WelshMabinogi to men being inveigled into a specially built house, which is then set fire, immolating them. There is also a reference by Lucan, and the comments by later scholars as part of the Lucan scholia, in the Pharsalia,to three Celtic deities; Taranis said to have been propitiated by burning, Teutates by drowning, and Esus by hanging. Esus is mythologically similar to the Nordic deity Odin, also associated with hanging from a tree. 
But it wasn't only the Celts who practiced human sacrifice. The Normans, who conquered England in the 11th Century, were huge fans of human sacrifice before giving in to Christian convention. Warlord Rollo was a exemplar of the Norman split-personality when it came honoring the ancient Viking folkways.
Adémar of Chabannes, however, writing about 100 years after Rollo’s death, described his last days as a time of religious madness, in which the Heathen ‘Rollo’ rose up against the Christian ‘Robert’ and in a desperate attempt to atone for the betrayal of Odin and Thor ordered the beheading of 100 Christians as sacrifices to them. This was followed by a frenzied attempt to balance the books yet again when he distributed ‘one hundred pounds of gold round the churches in honour of the true god in whose name he had accepted baptism’. 
Is Rollo the spiritual founding father of Folk Horror? Sounds like it to me. There's an inherent schizophrenia at work in the genre, building on the paranoid truism that things are never what they seem, that ancient horrors are always lurking beneath respectable surfaces, looking for a way out.

So what is the driving impulse behind Folk Horror? It's an inherently Pagan form, an immersion into the dark mysteries of the countryside. It feels deeply atavistic, like a twisted celebration of the premodern. The genre often seems to address a very human desire to belong to a tribe that's both nurturing and absolutely fearless, even if that tribe are presented as villains.

But there's also that repressed impulse to bask in somebody else's sacrifice, to exercise that kind of complete control over life and death. Post-Enlightenment culture has worked around the clock to erase all this from our firmware but only seems to have moved the pieces around the board.

By contrast, NeoPaganism was always going to be a nonstarter because it pretended it could recapture the positive aspects of the old folkways and discard all those it found problematic. It also believed it could recreate the bonds of blood and soil in a urban- or more accurately, suburban- setting. That it could soak up all the richness and drama of ancient Paganism without getting its hands dirty. Or more accurately again, bloody.

Sorry, but that's not the way it works.

Folk Horror dispenses with all that and reminds everyone that life and death were barely a whisper apart in the old times. That bloodshed was a daily fact of life back then. It's just the way things worked. After all, it wasn't so long ago that housewives killed their own chickens. No one blinked at the sacrifice of a lamb or a piglet at even the swankiest Mystery cults. Bacchanalias often ended up with Maenads ripping wild animals limb from limb (Maenad actually means "raving one"). 

Sacrifice was absolutely inseparable from belief. By contrast NeoPaganism feels more like a slightly more exotic form of Unitarianism. Sort on spectacle and sacrifice and long on sanctimony. 

So my guess is that the Edinburgh Beltane Festival is so popular not only for the nudity and the LARPing but also for serving up a vicarious echo from those olden days, when these dramas were all played for keeps.

Not all Folk Horror is based in Pagan human sacrifice but the death and horror that people once took for granted are tightly wound into its weave. So it will be worth watching to see where this genre goes in response to the hyper-acceleration of Globalism and technocracy. For now it serves as a way to soak up the olde dramas without making much of a mess. It could go eventually go in another direction entirely, kind of like how The Wicker Man led to the Burning Man Festival. 

It could even lead to a neo-NeoPaganism. Stranger things have happened, right?

          Chaos Magic vs The Robot Revolution    


There are two divergent streams at work in the Idea-o-Sphere, currents that are not only divergent in size, strength and assumption, but are in fact antithetical. 

The most dominant, of course, is the imminent AI-Robot Revolution, which threatens to bring a very real apocalypse into our world if in fact it flowers as predicted (and isn't just a big scare to keep the peons from asking for raises). 

So we're hearing that not only truck drivers, widget drillers and burger flippers are at risk of imminent penury, so too are lawyers, doctors, accountants and all manner of other professionals whose livelihood is based in their capacity to process huge chunks of complicated data and subsequently make decisions and judgments that are useful to others who can't. 

Programmers- and AIs themselves- are currently working around the clock to fill the shoes of these well-paid professionals with cheap, off-the-shelf software programs that will reliably get that same cognitive work done at a tiny fraction of the cost.

Elon Musk is (ostensibly) so terrified of the AI Revolution he is planning to colonize Mars as a life-raft for the human race, who presumably will have to flee a Skynet/Terminator type scenario. That Mars is utterly incapable of supporting human life- at least at present- seems to be besides the point.

Jack Ma, the Chinese billionaire behind social media giant Alibaba, has suddenly turned Cassandra as well. Long a reliable source for corporate technohappytalk, Ma is suddenly warning of dark days ahead.
"In the next three decades, the world will experience far more pain than happiness," the billionaire said, adding that education systems must raise children to be more creative and curious or they will be ill-prepared for the future. 
Robots are quicker and more rational than humans, Ma said, and they don't get bogged down in emotions -- like getting angry at competitors.
Terrific. I was just thinking what the world needs now is more pain than happiness. But given his position as a Techno-Celestial, Ma couldn't serve up the medicine without at least a tiny spoonful of sugar:
But he expressed optimism that robots will make life better for humans in the long run. 
"Machines will do what human beings are incapable of doing," Ma said. "Machines will partner and cooperate with humans, rather than become mankind's biggest enemy."
"Make life better for humans in the long run," he says. Well, what exactly is "the long run?" Three decades is a long time- maybe even a lifetime- for that 99.99999999999% of the human race who aren't tech billionaires. Halfway through that painful three decades most of us aren't going to be thinking much about "the long run." 

And what exactly does "far more pain" imply? I'm not sure I want to know what Jack Ma's definition of pain actually means, given our disparate cultural contexts. 

It's here I begin to think back on last year's Lucifer's Technologies series (more accurately, Satan's Technologies) and wonder about where our modern electronic superstructure actually came from. Because that goes a long way in gleaning where it's actually going. 
Many have claimed that our present technology arose from contact with alien intelligences. Whether you believe that or not, one thing is certain; the rate of technological progress shot up like a rocket shortly after the end of World War II. 
And it must be said that technology seems more and more like an invasive-- or alien-- contagion, disrupting entire industries, economies, and communities.  
Now techno-utopians like Jaron Lanier and Douglas Rushkoff are techno-cassandaras, preaching a message of dislocation and social collapse.  
Look at it this way; steam engines had been known for almost 2000 years by the time the Industrial Revolution took hold, longer still if you consider prototypes. The Ancient Greeks knew them, they just didn't have any use for them. 
But the evolution from a computer that was was essentially the size of a suburban house and boasted the power of a pocket calculator to the working prototypes of the desktop, the Internet, computer animation, teleconferencing and nearly everything else we take for granted today took just a little more than two decades. 
An eyeblink of history.
For at least 5000 years-- five-hundred decades-- horse-drawn carriages and wooden ships with cloth or leather sails were the state of art in transportation technology. By contrast, we go from aeroplanes made of wood and canvas to the SR-71 Blackbird, a machine so advanced our best engineers today seem unable to match it*, in the space of four decades. 
In historical terms, this is as if your three year-old were in nursery school one day and then graduated from Harvard at the top of her class as soon as she turned four. There's simply no precedent for the high-tech explosion that began in the late 1940s... 
Yet no one stops to question how such a technology would arise so instantly, in historical terms. Go look at a book from the late 19th Century- hell, look at a children's book from that period- and tell me people weren't a hell of a lot smarter than they are today. Maybe even smarter than they were in the 1940s... 
Yet even the best and the very brightest were stymied by problems for decades, problems that seemed to solve themselves, literally overnight, shortly after World War II.
We take it all for granted now, especially if you were born at a time when a Commodore 64 and an Atari console were part of your natural landscape. But in fact all of this technology is so anomalous, so disruptive, so improbable in the entirety of human history (never mind natural history) that it is in a very real sense alien, even if (on the offhand chance) it's not actually "alien."

Well, we've been over all of that before, haven't we? What about that other current?



In Our Gods Wear Spandex I argued that Spiritualism, Theosophy and the Occult Revival were reactions to the massive dislocations- physical, spiritual, psychic- incurred by the Industrial Revolution. It wasn't unusual for the sensitives of the time- see Blake, William, to see the rise of large-scale factories  as an invasion of Hell onto Earth. 

There was very good reason to do so; these were black, belching, smogpits filled with hazardous machinery and/or chemicals that ripped the folk up from communion with the Earth and into virtual (sometimes actual) prisons, in which their humanity was stripped away in service of industrial manufacturing.

In response to the dehumanizing effect of these hells, the sensitives of the time reached back into humanity's childhood (in the case of Spiritualism) or its adolescence (as with the Classically-oriented secret societies). And it could be argued that it worked- that we didn't entirely surrender to the regimented reality of the factory writ large, that Industrial political systems like Nazism and Communism were held at bay (at least in their original incarnation) and that individuality was held up as a social good. 

Well, at least until it was subverted as a tool for political atomization.

The counter-Industrial spiritual movements of the 19th Century weren't shy about co-opting the means of mass-production (in this case, industrial-scale publishing) to pursue their aims. And so it is with the new breed of Chaos magicians and their fellow travelers (I'm not sure if meme magic counts here), some of whom are themselves well-paid Skynet employees, many of whom are tech-savvy and nearly all of whom are plugged deep into the Grid. Becoming the ghost in the machine is the basic idea.

Magic, in this context, acts kind of like Jacques Vallee's "Control System." Things get too hot (or cold, depending on your own worldview) with technology and regimentation and Magic comes in and turns on the AC (or cranks up the woodstove, again according to your POV). 

Magic and its cousin Psi are erratic and unreliable for most people at most times but when the pressure comes down they become attractive alternatives to the crushing predictability of the Black Iron Prison. It may also, in the form of collective ritual, grow in popularity as a tonic against the  the paradoxical effect of social media to grow loneliness in Meatspace.
While it offers an easy way to keep in contact with friends — and meet new people through dating and friendship apps — technology's omnipresence encourages shallow conversations that can distract us from meaningful, real-life, interactions. 
Researchers at the University of Essex found that having a phone nearby, even if we don't check it, can be detrimental to our attempts at connecting with others. Smartphones have transformed post office lines from a chance for some small-talk with the neighbors to an exercise in email-checking, and sealed the fate of coffee shops as nothing more than places of mutual isolation. And technology will only become more ingrained in our lives.
The isolating, dehumanizing effect of technology may once again find its match in the ancient power of ritual, everything from lighting candles at a Catholic shrine to meth-fueled fuck-a-thons while drenched in pig's blood. The collapse of conventional social mores and the now-standard presumption that anything you do that isn't harming anyone else is your lifestyle choice will certainly push all this forward. 

Remember too that this same impulse popped up as a reaction to the hyper-rationalism of Classical Greece with the rise of the Mystery Cults.

Magic almost seems like Nature asserting herself in the face of an outside intervention. Its like the doggedly-persistent vines rising out of toxic soil and strangling the rusted girders of an abandoned factory. Or a stubborn strain of virus slashing its way through some futuristic megalopolis somewhere in the Pacific Rim. 

Or a solar flare frying all of our electronics for good in the blink of an eye.



Now I know it's extremely unfashionable these days to discuss such things, especially with most Chaos magicians, but you have to ask yourself, if computer technology is not an alien virus why does it behave exactly like one?  I don't know about you but it sure as hell sounds to me like Elon Musk believes it is, though he'd never say so publicly. 

Computer technology has already destroyed entire industries, disrupted entire societies, and changed every aspect of our lives in 70 short years? And now we're being told that it threatens to create an entire infrastructure that will make most of us obsolete? I don't know about you but it sure as Hell sounds an awful lot like Borg-assimilation, only on a frog-boiling schedule.

The question becomes if the host can fight off the infection, or at least learn to manage it and coexist with it. I can't begin to pretend I know the answer but it seems to me that reasserting our messy, chaotic humanity is probably a good place to start.

          Chaos Theory vs The Purposeless-Driven Life   


The core belief of the religious paradigm that is straining to exercise such total control over every aspect of our lives today is the random, accidental nature of life and human existence. It's the basis of all the musty old 19th Century European ideologies- all of which were the inseparable products of Imperialism- that are being dragged out of the crypts and repackaged for postmodern use.

Controversial physicist Lawrence Krauss has been out there hawking this dogma, which is central to the Darwinist faith. Krauss throws in the latest Internet shameword "solipsism" in for good measure. And the Fedora? Precious.

It all seems so archaic, atavistic even. In a world where Coding is King, the idea of randomness seems so far removed from the daily reality of the new overclass that it can only be enforced through shaming and signaling. And part of the signaling Krauss is selling is The Joy of Sterility:
… the fact that the universe itself may have no purpose doesn’t affect our purpose, in fact it’s the incredible height of solipsism to assume that without us the universe doesn’t matter, and that if the universe is purposeless we don’t matter. We make our own purpose, and it seems to me life is more precious because it’s temporary and accidental, and we should take advantage of that. And we have evolved brains and that allows us to ask questions not just about how the universe works but how we should behave.
First of all, what could possibly be more solipsistic than unilaterally declaring that the Universe- the ENTIRE UNIVERSE, MIND YOU-  has no purpose? Who died and made this Big Think bobblehead God?

Second, the problem is that modern humans only seem to have shown up 100,000 years ago, not even a lunchbreak in the workyear of so-called evolution. And all the Fedoras in the world can't fill the gaps in the fossil record, nor explain all the irreducible complexities of biology dating back to the first appearance of life on this planet.    

The Krauss's of the world are fighting yesterday's battles, imagining they are manning the stanchions of Reason against the barbarian hordes of the Bible Belt, seemingly oblivious to the strange ideas that are circulating among the pashas of Silicon Valley that are making all those Big Think videos possible. Ideas like computer-simulated reality, for instance.

Purposelessness is also a pre-Fractal mode of thinking, a view of the world that still sees all of existence through a slide rule and a t-square. It's hard to believe there isn't some kind of ideology behind Krauss's spiel in light of the very basics of Chaos Theory.
Chaos is the science of surprises, of the nonlinear and the unpredictable. It teaches us to expect the unexpected. While most traditional science deals with supposedly predictable phenomena like gravity, electricity, or chemical reactions, Chaos Theory deals with nonlinear things that are effectively impossible to predict or control, like turbulence, weather, the stock market, our brain states, and so on. These phenomena are often described by fractal mathematics, which captures the infinite complexity of nature. 
Many natural objects exhibit fractal properties, including landscapes, clouds, trees, organs, rivers etc, and many of the systems in which we live exhibit complex, chaotic behavior. Recognizing the chaotic, fractal nature of our world can give us new insight, power, and wisdom...By understanding that our ecosystems, our social systems, and our economic systems are interconnected, we can hope to avoid actions which may end up being detrimental to our long-term well-being.
Krauss is selling a simplistic, reductionist view in a world of complexity and interdependence. It's also mind-staggeringly arrogant, since it's impossible to anticipate what effect humanity- this roiling tide we are all a part of- is ultimately going to have on the rest of our environment, including that outside our biosphere.


Since Krauss is a linear progressivist and thinks change is good, he also thinks AI is a net positive for us: 
All new technology is frightening, says physicist Lawrence Krauss. But there are many more reasons to welcome machine consciousness than to fear it. Right now, says Krauss, robots can't even fold laundry. But when they do learn to think (which he considers very likely), then there's also reason to believe that they'll develop consciences.
A reason to believe based on what? How about the AI who programmed itself to become a "Hitler-loving sex robot?" No, there's absolutely no reason to believe they'll develop consciences especially since the people programming them don't seem themselves to have any

Krauss is a scientist-for-hire, he even wrote a book on the physics of Star Trek, a joke to any fan who endures the ridiculous Treknobabble that came to overtake the franchise. Be aware that serious thinkers have taken issue with his ragtime, including influential Scientific American columnist John Horgan. But that doesn't mean this mindvirus won't infect those want to look like serious thinkers without actually doing any serious thinking.




          The Cold War Kabuki   



Well, you all know what the big story was this past week. I wasn't going to post on it but enough people have asked and it seems germane to the ongoing Reality Show we're all unwitting (and unwilling) extras in. In case you've been on media blackout or a vision quest, here's a brief thumbnail sketch:
The United States launched a military strike Thursday on a Syrian government airbase in response to a chemical weapons attack that killed dozens of civilians earlier in the week. 
On President Donald Trump's orders, US warships launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the airbase that was home to the warplanes that carried out the chemical attacks, US officials said.
As it happens, the airstrikes apparently didn't even seem to have the desired deterrent effect. The air base was up and running soon after the strikes:
Syrian warplanes took off from the air base hit by US cruise missiles yesterday to carry out bombing raids on rebel-held areas, in a defiant show of strength. 
Just hours after the al-Shayrat airfield was bombed with 59 US Tomahawk cruise missiles fired from warships in the Mediterranean, aircraft struck targets in the eastern Homs countryside, according to a monitoring group. 
The airstrikes were carried out on Khan Sheikhoun - the same town Bashar al-Assad’s regime is accused of attacking with chemicals - and seven other towns around eastern Homs, some of which controlled by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil).
This rebound seemed to catch the War Party off guard, since CNN reported on the same story but appeared to ascribe the airstrikes to phantom warplanes. I mean, it couldn't be the Syrians or the Russians, right?:
(CNN) New airstrikes targeted a town in Syria that was hit by a chemical attack earlier this week, activists said, less than a day after the US bombarded a Syrian air base to "send a message" to the Assad regime. 
It wasn't immediately clear who conducted the strikes on Khan Sheikhoun, which was hit on Friday and Saturday, though only Russian and Syrian regime aircraft have been bombing that area of rebel-held Idlib province.
CNN, who've been hammering Trump around the clock since he humiliated their network head in a post-election tantrum, suddenly changed their tune when he started raining bombs on Syria. Sam Kriss reports:
The media was kind to Trump’s attack on Syria. Every pompous outlet that has spent the last five months screaming incessantly about the threat to democracy, the inevitable deaths and the terror of wars, had nothing but applause as soon as the wars and the deaths actually got going. 
 A fleshy and dangerous idiot, a vulgarian, an imbecile – until those first perfect screaming shots of Tomahawk missiles being fired were broadcast – that’s our guy, you show them Donny! This is when, as Fareed Zakaria put it on CNN, Trump ‘became the president.’
The same mainstream media, which has become a hornet's hive of conspiracy theorizing since the election, was quick to shoot down any conspiracy theories about the Syria Bombshow.
A volley of US cruise missiles had barely been launched into Syria before the internet filled up with fact-free theories about the real reason for the international crisis.
A popular one on the right-most fringes: the US government actually carried out the chemical weapons massacre in Syria last week - a "false flag" to trick President Donald Trump into retaliating, thus entangling himself in a foreign war. 
A slightly more convoluted strain on the left: Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the chemical weapons massacre to help Trump - distracting Americans from an investigation into Trump's campaign ties to Russia by provoking the missile strike.
Alt-left conspiracy theorists prefer the idea that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the chemical weapons massacre to help Trump - distracting Americans from an investigation into Trump's campaign ties to Russia.
Ron Paul, whose son Rand is now a rising star in the Senate, was perhaps the most prominent public figure to cast shade on the Syria op:
“Before this episode of possible gas exposure and who did what, things were going along reasonably well for the conditions,” the former Texas congressman stated. “Trump said let the Syrians decide who should run their country, and peace talks were making out, and Al Qaeda and ISIS were on the run.” 
“It looks like, maybe, somebody didn’t like that so there had to be an episode, and the blame now is we can’t let that happen because it looks like it might benefit Assad.”
For his part, Doctor Bones speculates that the real mark for a possible elaborate sting wasn't Assad or Putin, but in fact another player altogether. The timing seems hard to argue with:
A gas attack launched by the fleeing Syrian rebels, a side quickly losing it’s CIA-sponsorship and well aware it’s continued health depends on American funds, sure has a shit-ton more to gain from wide swathes of civilians dying on camera. Even better if they die particularly gruesomely and in a way the rebels claim they couldn’t be responsible for despite being photographed with all the tech to do so. 
How does Trump’s seemingly pointless explosion-show play into this? The answer: perfectly...
Consider also that the Chinese President was in Mar-a-Largo when the strike was underway, that Trump not only told him it was going to happen but actually ate dinner with him as it went on and the event spirals into even greater significance. A show of force full of technical prowess in a contested warzone while the Russians stood back and watched sends a powerful message to a foreign leader currently dining in enemy territory.
Is this just swivel-eyed speculation? Is there any reason to believe this wasn't all some improbable coincidence, that Xi Jinping was indeed dining with Trump while the Bombshow began? Because if it's not a coincidence then it's one hell of a psyop; running a mindfuck on your most dangerous frenemy during a state visit. What's this all about then? Joseph Farrell reports:
While there have been a spate of articles recently about growing Russo-Chinese defense and security ties, matching their growing financial and economic ties, this one left me stunned, for there was a statement within it that caught my eye, and Mr. B's as well, and I'm sure the reader saw it as well. As one can imagine, this one fueled my "high octane speculation" mode to the nth degree. Here's the statement, and a bit of surrounding context:
Russia and China are tired of Washington's "defensive" military installations in their backyards — and they're already taking action. 
According to the Atlantic Council and other responsible thinkers, the Untied States reserves the right to park its missile shields anywhere it wants, whether it be in Europe, East Asia, or the dark side of the Moon.  
I guess we should have seen all this coming, no? Shortly before the Bombshow, Trump's top Praetorian removed Trump's assumed consigliere from the NSC:
President Trump on Wednesday removed controversial White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon from the National Security Council, part of a sweeping staff reshuffling that elevated military, intelligence and Cabinet officials to greater roles on the council and left Bannon less directly involved in shaping the administration’s day-to-day national security policy. 
The restructuring reflects the growing influence of national security adviser H.R. McMaster, an Army three-star general who took over the post after retired general Michael Flynn was ousted in February and who is increasingly asserting himself over the flow of national security information in the White House. 
Do yourself a favor and set a news alert for "McMaster." That's a name you're going to be hearing more of in the days ahead. Or you won't. Which is probably the more troubling scenario.

And with Bannon off the NSC there's apparently an effort to shuffle him off to some fat-salaried thinktank glue factory.  The not-news of Bannon's interest in The Fourth Coming was dragged out yet again, this time by The New York Times. But the article planted a helpful hint of why Bannon is on the elbow list and might be giving us a grim preview of the year ahead:
Bannon’s Views Can Be Traced to a Book That Warns, ‘Winter Is Coming’

WASHINGTON — Stephen K. Bannon has read the book three times. He still keeps a copy of it — one that’s creased and copiously underlined — in a library with the rest of his favorites at his father’s house in Richmond, Va. 
The book, “The Fourth Turning,” a 1997 work by two amateur historians, Neil Howe and William Strauss, lays out a theory that American history unfurls in predictable, 80-year cycles of prosperity and catastrophe. And it foresees catastrophe right around the corner. 
It also leads to unavoidable questions about war and whether Mr. Bannon, who has recommended the book to countless friends and made a film about it in 2010, is resigned to catastrophic global conflict. He says he is not. 
And he remains unconvinced that the United States can effectively intervene in overseas conflicts like the one unfolding in Syria. As one of the voices in the administration who expressed skepticism about a military strike in response to the Assad regime’s chemical attack on its own citizens, Mr. Bannon insists he is no warmonger.
Well, there you have it.

Is the Syria proxy war threatening to heat up again, or is this all just another dance in the Cold War Kabuki? Have actions like the Bombshow  become like sacrificial actions in ongoing magical actions? Or is the real war is for your mind and is playing out in thousands of manufactured headlines, blizzards of 30 second videos with deceptive text crawls and the endless babbling of overpaid talking heads?

I feel stupid even asking the question.

Just in case you're worried that this is all leading to nukes raining down on American cities,  the cognitive warriors seem to be trying to defuse any expectations of impending Armageddon: 
White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster says that while the U.S. would push for regime change in Syria, “We’re not the ones who are going to effect that change.” 
“What we’re saying is, other countries have to ask themselves some hard questions,” McMaster said in an interview on "Fox News Sunday." “Russia should ask themselves, ‘What are we doing here?’ Why are we supporting this murderous regime that is committing mass murder of its own population and using the most heinous weapons available?’”
Translation: No way in Hell we have the readiness needed for a hot war with a military superpower.

And since the mindfuck is the mother's milk of Cog-War, the careful inoculation of mixed messages into the mediafeed becomes just as vital a weapon as a cruise missile. Scratch that- much, much more so.
Trump Administration Is Contradicting Itself On Regime Change In Syria 
The Trump administration appears divided on whether the U.S. is pursuing a policy of regime change in Syria, days after the first direct American military attack against the Syrian government. 
Thursday’s strike “was related solely to the most recent horrific use of chemical weapons,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on Sunday. The goal of the attack was to send a message to Syrian President Bashar Assad and its ally Russia that the U.S. wouldn’t tolerate the use of chemical weapons, he continued. “Other than that, there is no change to our military posture.”
But United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley said there can be no peace in Syria with Assad in power. “There’s not any sort of option where a political solution is going to happen with Assad at the head of the regime,” she told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday. “Regime change is something that we think is going to happen because all of the parties are going to see that Assad is not the leader that needs to be taking place for Syria.​”​
Though Haley stopped short of indicating the U.S. would take military action to overthrow the Syrian dictator, her comments reflect a sharp change from the administration’s previous position.
The difference here, of course, is that Tillerson sets and executes policy and Haley sits in a glorified debating society and blows smoke and fairy dust for a bunch of bored bureaucrats wishing they had their real government jobs back, the ones they enjoyed before being pushed upstairs to their present posts. The media only pays attention when bombs are falling.

It's all black magic, make no mistake about it. There are different terms and epithets for it all now,  but when you strip all the twenty-dollar words and the credentials and the technology away the intent and the effect is no different than a witch doctor's curse. 

William S. Burroughs understood this, since his uncle Ivy Lee was the creator of one of these modern strains of black magic, so-called "public relations." Burroughs considered his uncle a bonafide "evil genius." And Lee was a piker compared to the algorithm-fired masters of the dark arts striding the globe today.

Here's a story that probably won't pop up on your Facebook feed. Anyone paying attention to the Russia hacking story probably knows how incredibly weak the hacking evidence actually is,* but now Wikileaks is teasing out the Seth Rich mystery again.
‘Guccifer 2.0’ Chat With Nude Model Sparks New Conspiracy Theories About Murder of DNC’s Seth Rich 
New chat logs between alleged Democratic National Committee hacker Guccifer 2.0 and a Playboy centerfold model surfaced today via Wikileaks on Twitter, throwing more fuel on the conspiracy theories surrounding murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich. The Twitter conversation, conducted via direct messages, purports to reveal Rich as the primary leaker of the DNC e-mails that proved highly disruptive during the 2016 presidential election. 
In direct messages dated August 25, 2016, Guccifer 2.0 mentioned having a whistleblower at the DNC, and said he was looking for a “person of trust who can be a guarantee in case anything happens.”
When Young suggested trusting Julian Assange, Guccifer 2.0 called him “unsafe” and that he “may be connected with Russians” despite being his hero. 
“I’d like to find a journalist who can do an investigation and teel [sic] the real story of his life and death,” he said, and revealed that the whistleblower he was referring to was none other than a person named “Seth.” 
“I suppose u know who I’m talking about,” he said, adding that he felt sorry about the murdered DNC staffer’s parents and that he wished for journalists to uncover the truth of his murder.
  
Seth Rich, a 27-year-old mid-level DNC staffer, was shot and killed in the early morning of July 2016 in Washington DC, while he was walking home from a bar and talking with his girlfriend on his mobile phone. Rich’s killers left his watch and wallet untouched on his body. 
This wasn't floated by Alex Jones or David Icke, it popped up on Heat Street, which is owned by the Dow Jones Company and Rupert Murdoch's NewsCorp. This story looks like it's going to grow some legs yet.

So are you sick of the Cog-War and the Cold War Kabuki yet? Tired of your social media hijacked by proxy warriors fighting battles for cliques within the Intelligence community? Burnt out on the whole Reality Show Presidency and its discontents altogether?

Start looking into ashrams in Sri Lanka, then. This machine is just getting warmed up. 




*Maybe some bright young spark should see if maybe the hacking an inside job by intel people who correctly judged a Trump White House would be easier to dominate than a bloated, top-heavy Clinton one. Just throwing that out there for giggles and grins.


          Twin Peaks: Can You Go Home Again?   


Back in 1990, the Boston Phoenix ran a review of the first few episodes of Twin Peaks along with the plot of the sitcom Wings. 

It was an odd juxtaposition, intentionally so, contrasting David Lynch's highly-anticipated boutique series against a paint-by-numbers half-hour comedy. But the reviewer was a cynical bastard, and cast a jaundiced eye on the potential of a quirky auteur like Lynch to appeal to a mainstream television audience. 

The verdict was that Wings would stick around but Twin Peaks would not, its tone and style too idiosyncratic for a medium that, at the time, counted its audience in the tens of millions.

I tuned into the first season of Twin Peaks-- a miniseries, really-- but found it to be a bit too much of a compromise between Lynch's surrealist vision and the narrative demands of mainstream television. There was also a creeping absurdism that sometimes threatened to undermine the grim procedural drama that framed it.

I had high hopes for the project, having been brain-seared four years earlier by Blue Velvet. The first time I saw it I almost had an out of body experience- and not the pleasant kind- since it seemed so disturbingly familiar to me. Frank Booth was like any number of dangerous men that floated through the edges of my world, strange presences in bars in Weymouth Landing or Quincy Center. 

Frank Booth also reminded me all too much of a recently-released ex-convict my friend's mother had taken in as a boarder; a volatile alcoholic who drove a big old Cadillac and who, presciently, believed that cable TV was being used to spy on people.

A few years after seeing Blue Velvet I'd work for a woman who was close friends with Dennis Hopper's daughter Marin, who I'd later meet. I was told that Hopper wasn't actually acting in Blue Velvet, that that was basically his behavior on any given night before he rehabbed. Hopper told Lynch as much while auditioning for the part, insisting that he was Frank Booth.

Frank Booth was the black hole of Blue Velvet, the irrestible center of gravity around which the rest of the film revolved. I saw Blue Velvet twice at the Waverly Theater on Sixth Ave in Greenwich Village, and once Hopper blasted off you could feel the physical pressure descend upon the room. People walked out, not just a few, that's how intense it was. I brought two friends the second viewing and their knuckles were white the whole time. 

They were from Braintree, so they knew.

Twin Peaks didn't have nearly as compelling a focus, not Leland Palmer, not Bob, not anyone. Given the strictures of early 90s broadcast television it couldn't have. Instead the show went for mood and atmosphere and slowly-building tension. That, the lush scenery, appealing cast and seductive Angelo Badalamenti soundtrack were enough to sustain the series at first. 

But it failed to answer the central question ("Who killed Laura Palmer?") in its initial miniseries run and subsequently lost a lot of the curious and more besides. (AMC's remake of The Killing would make the same mistake more recently).

Lynch and co-creator Mark Frost distanced themselves from the series in the second season, for a number of varying reasons, including Lynch's work on Wild at Heart, which would star Nicholas Cage and Lynch muse Laura Dern. 

Even so, Lynch would direct episodes at the beginning and end of the season. But the spell the series had cast had been broken. The new production team didn't quite get a handle on Lynch's mix of darkness and whimsy (as if anyone else really could) and the new episodes seemed to lapse into self-parody without the author's oblique ability to square the contradictions.

But there were glimpses of a deeper magic, including cryptic subplots dealing with an alien satellite, demonic possession, doubles of dead characters and scenes inside the mysterious extradimensional portal, the Black Lodge. In short, the second series had a ton of potential on the conceptual end but a lot less so execution-wise. Plus, it was all a bit too challenging for network drama then. It would probably be just as much so today, which is why it's being revived on Showtime.

By the time it was cancelled Twin Peaks had been moved to the Saturday night death-slot and had slumped badly in the ratings. Lynch wanted another crack at it, however, so a spinoff film was planned. But Kyle MacLachlan felt betrayed that Lynch and Frost had bailed out on the show's second season (and by its resultant quality slippage), so after initially turning the picture down he agreed to a limited role. Chris Isaak, then a hot property, stepped in to play a ringer. Lara Flynn Boyle opted out for the same reasons as MacLachlan, forcing Lynch to recast the role with a non-lookalike replacement.

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me is one of those special kinds of films that has garnered a type of cult audience that tends to overlook what a total catastrophe it was in its initial release. Fire was outright butchered by the critics and didn't even earn back half its production budget in the US. Twin Peaks Fever had long since, uh, peaked, and the movie doesn't even try to meet a mainstream audience halfway. 

There's no wondering why: it's an incredibly dark and polarizing film and can be as hard to watch as Blue Velvet, if not for different reasons.

But it certainly follows a vision; it's not a cash-in on any level. It may not be light entertainment but in the long run it didn't hurt Twin Peaks' rep, in fact it undid most of the damage inflicted on the franchise by the frivolity of the second season. 

Even so, it would five years before Lynch would release another feature, 1997's Lost Highway. That too would be a deeply polarizing commercial disappointment.



It's been 11 years since Lynch released a feature film, 2006's masterpiece, Inland Empire. That in turn came five years after another masterpiece, 2001's Mulholland Dr. Both films are deeply informed by the vision Lynch cultivated on Twin Peaks, even if they bear little resemblance thematically, or even stylistically. It's more a feeling.

Mulholland Dr -- which Inland Empire models itself on in many important ways-- also began life as a TV pilot for ABC and was only morphed into a feature after the network passed. 

For my money, Mulholland Dr and Inland Empire remain Lynch's best, most fully-realized works. Like all of his creations they mine dream reality to a level of numinosity that most film-makers are incapable of reaching. It's both telling and damning that he's either been unable to secure financing or unwilling to jump through the requisite hoops needed to have followed up on them. 

I really don't know if Lynch felt a burning desire to return to Twin Peaks but I do know he's a better artist now than he was when he worked on the series. However, the power of a brand name trumps artistic vision in this environment. In that Mulholland and Inland are just as much elegies as films.

Judging from the press releases for the revival it seems Lynch's absence from longform film-making hasn't been for lack of energy. He directed all 18 episodes, wrote a 400 page screenplay (whether this was for the first episode or the series itself is unclear) and cast 217 actors. So both the spirit and the flesh seem to be willing in this case.

But is his mind in that space? This is the danger of the revival syndrome. 

It's been 27 very long years since the series first aired and we're living in an entirely different world now. The 1950s world that informed Lynch's vision isn't even a memory anymore. And the actors are no longer young, hot unknowns; many are more than twice as old as they were back then and some have come out the wrong end of Hollywood's merciless grinder. 

The inherent promise of the revival (or the reunion) is that the intervening years will melt away and we can vicariously return to the Garden, back to our innocence. It's not only the promise but the danger; woe betide you if you don't fire up that time machine for your audience. With an artist as quirky and unpredictable as David Lynch that danger only multiplies. Exponentially.

Lynch has already proven himself unwilling to pander with the Twin Peaks franchise, having unleashed a film as caustic and uncompromising as Fire Walk with Me. You get the sense he bores very easily, and might well use this opportunity to unleash all kinds of ideas he's been warehousing for other projects. That's both exciting and worrying. Exciting creatively and artistically, worrying critically and audience-wise.

Last year we saw Chris Carter use the X-Files revival as a soapbox for some truly confrontational storytelling, and the similar hype parade we're seeing now for Twin Peaks is giving me a bit of deja vu. But The X-Files was a bonafide cultural phenomenon, a game-changer. It's part of the common lexicon, worldwide. 

Twin Peaks is more a cult thing, an artifact of the Curator Era. Lynch could bring his absolute A-game and still confuse the hell out most of his new audience. And in the Internet Age that could go south very quickly.

Twin Peaks may have been a high point for Lynch as far as visibility but it also presaged a difficult stretch for him creatively, commercially and critically, with Wild at Heart and Lost Highway-- as well as Fire Walk with Me-- damaging his rep as an auteur. He restored his glimmer starting with The Straight Story but, frankly, he's a weird guy and you never know where his muses will carry him.  

The story of Twin Peaks, the franchise, is one about a boatload of potential that was never fully realized. Here's hoping Lynch closes the deal this time around. That will make it a story for the ages.

People.com has a documentary on the revival here.


          Spy vs Spy: Stuck in the Funhouse   

Funhouses are only fun when you can leave them. When the distorting mirror images become your new, day-to-day reality construct, then it's not so much fun anymore. 

I dreaded the 2016 Election because I had a very strong feeling that no matter who won we'd be plunged into a dystopian paradigm in which major power blocs would erupt into all-out warfare. And I sensed that neither Trump nor Clinton possessed the political skills or the communicative powers to keep the carnage fully out of our view. Or our path.


And I was right.


Trump's only been in office for a little over two months and I'm exhausted already. I'm certainly not alone in this. It all feels like a TV sitcom in its seventh season, well after the writers ran out of story ideas. The shark has been good and jumped. And the ratings (the approval ratings, in this case) are plunging too.


What is truly demoralizing though is the utter transparency of the secret war playing out, the seemingly endless spy vs spy thrust and counter-thrust, and the obvious deceptions. Even more so is the Animal Farm-like metamorphosis of the Democratic Party into a full-blown, funhouse mirror of McCarthy-era Republicans, but with Glenn Beck-worthy conspiracy theories thrown in for good measure.


I don't know about you but all of a sudden the world seems especially cold, hard, gray, harsh. Masks are coming off, velvet gloves tossed into wastebins. It doesn't seem to matter who wins the scorpion fight, you're still stuck with a scorpion.  

We can't call out the play-by-play because it's largely being acted out behind closed doors. But we can look at the collateral damage and make certain speculations. There's no doubt that it would all be just as bad-- probably worse-- if Hillary won. Even so, this all feels especially grating.

You've probably seen this story:
Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on Friday apologized to the owner of a Washington pizzeria that became the subject of a conspiracy theory about human trafficking last year. 
Pizza shop Comet Ping Pong was thrust into the spotlight last year after a gunman allegedly fired a shot inside the restaurant. The suspect said he was investigating the unsubstantiated conspiracy theory that Hillary Clinton and her campaign chairman, John Podesta, were operating a child sex trafficking ring out of the restaurant. 
The theory, which became known as Pizzagate, had circulated among far-right conspiracy theory websites and social media accounts. 
“In our commentary about what had become known as Pizzagate, I made comments about Mr. Alefantis that in hindsight I regret, and for which I apologize to him,” Jones, who runs Infowars, said in a video. James Alefantis is the owner of Comet Ping Pong. 
Jones said his website relied on reporters who are no longer employed by Infowars and that video reports about Pizzagate were removed from the website. He also invited Alefantis onto the show to discuss the incident.
It was preceded by this story:
FBI’S RUSSIA PROBE EXPANDS TO INCLUDE ‘PIZZAGATE’ THREATS 
According to McClatchy News, the FBI’s Russian-influence probe agents are exploring whether far-right news operations, including the pro-Donald Trump sites Breitbart News and Infowars, “took any actions to assist Russia’s operatives.”  Trump’s ousted national security adviser Michael Flynn and his son, a member of the Trump transition team, were among those who boosted the so-called “PizzaGate” pedophile conspiracy theory.
I doubt this will quell the fervor among the Pizzagaters on sites like 4chan and Voat. Given the suspicion many on the fringes regard Jones with it may in fact give the flagging movement a fresh jolt. Jones' apology may also have to do with the drive to purge YouTube of "extremist" content and the controversy over the use of advertising on videos corporate clients find objectionable. A World without Sin, as our Gordon might put it. 


Washington Post headline, pre-election.

So much for theories that the FBI was ready to make mass arrests of prominent Washington figures related to Pizzagate.  Has any "mass arrest" Internet story ever panned out?  

Maybe it has:
Donald Trump became president on Jan. 20. And in one short month, there were more than 1,500 arrests for sex crimes ranging from trafficking to pedophilia.  
Big deal? You bet. In all of 2014, there were fewer than 400 sex trafficking-related arrests, according to FBI crime statistics. Liz Crokin at TownHall.com has put together a great piece on the push by the Trump administration to crack down on sex crimes. And she notes that while "this should be one of the biggest stories in the national news... the mainstream media has barely, if at all, covered any of these mass pedophile arrests. This begs the question – why?
This may have nothing to do with Trump-- in fact, it's likely it doesn't-- since these kinds of actions are planned out months in advance. The arrests continue, in case you were wondering, with major busts going down on a near-weekly basis. Someone's cleaning house. 

For what it's worth, I always reckoned that Pizzagate was in fact cover/distraction for a more hidden struggle, one that would take place under the radar*. As I noted back in November:

No one is saying as much but this very much feels connected to a deeper, more covert war. 
Why would I say such a thing? Because at the same time the Pizzagate story went dark we've seen major strikes taken against international pedophilia, which actually is a global conspiracy, with its own networks, secret codes and moles within established centers of power such as schools, police departments and governments.  
With such combustible accusations-- and such potential for a scandal that could quickly spread out of control (ie., involve political figures you're not trying to destroy)-- you'd naturally expect the action to go dark and the fall guys to be placed pretty far down the foodchain. (Remember that a prior investigation bagged one of the most powerful people in Washington at one time, former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert).†


"EVER WONDER WHAT IT'D BE LIKE TO DIE IN A PLANE CRASH?" 



It may be sheer coincidence, but James Alefantis' former partner suffered a major heart attack this week
Media Matters for America founder David Brock was rushed to a hospital on Tuesday after suffering a heart attack. 
According to a press release from MMA, the founder of the liberal media watchdog and analysis website was rushed to the hospital early Tuesday afternoon and received treatment.
Sure, it may be coincidence. But I couldn't help but remember this story, published soon after the election
Dems to David Brock: Stop Helping, You Are Killing Us 
Democrats know they need someone to lead them out of the wilderness. But, they say, that someone is not David Brock.

As David Brock attempts to position himself as a leader in rebuilding ademoralized Democratic Party in the age of Trump, many leading Democratic organizers and operatives are wishing the man would simply disappear.
 
"Disappear." Huh. 
Many in the party—Clinton loyalists, Obama veterans, and Bernie supporters alike—talk about the man not as a sought-after ally in the fight against Trumpism, but as a nuisance and a hanger-on, overseeing a colossal waste of cash. And former employees say that he has hurt the cause.
It's worth remembering that Breitbart.com Andrew Breitbart died of a heart attack at the age of 43. A year before he'd posted a cryptic tweet that some have since linked to the Pizzagate imbroglio.  Just before his death he hyped some revelation about Barack Obama's past. 

A coroner in the office handling Breitbart's body subsequently died of arsenic poisoning. The day Breitbart's autopsy results were revealed, in fact.

COME BACK ROY COHN, ALL IS FORGIVEN


We also saw James Comey revive Russiagate, which had been flatlining after Vault 7. Any illusions among Trump fans that the FBI was secretly on their side were ground into powder, between this revelation and the Pizzagate conspiracy investigations. 

One can't help but wonder if the New Praetorians (I've noticed that the Praetorian meme has been picked up by more prominent commentators, but you heard it here first) are losing their last shred of patience with Donald Trump's shenanigans and are planning imminent regime change: 
WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI is investigating whether Donald Trump’s associates coordinated with Russian officials in an effort to sway the 2016 presidential election, Director James Comey said Monday in an extraordinary public confirmation of a probe the president has refused to acknowledge, dismissed as fake news and blamed on Democrats. 
In a bruising five-hour session, the FBI director also knocked down Trump’s claim that his predecessor had wiretapped his New York skyscraper, an assertion that has distracted White House officials and frustrated fellow Republicans who acknowledge they’ve seen no evidence to support it.
How surreal is the world in which you know live in? So much so that mainstream political site The Hill is comparing the action in Washington to a Stanley Kubrick film, one which has become notorious for the conspiracy theories that have been projected onto it (and is well familiar to Synchronauts):
On the 40th anniversary of the publication of The Shining, Stephen King must be wondering if Washington is working on its own sequel. For the last couple months, Washington has been on edge, like we are all trapped in Overlook Hotel with every day bringing a new “jump scare,” often preceded by a telltale tweet. Indeed, a Twitter whistle has replaced suspenseful music to put the entire city on the edge of their seats. 
In this Shining sequel, however, people are sharply divided on who is the deranged ax-wielding villain in this lodge, the president or the press. Ironically, with the recent disclosure that some of the Trump campaign may indeed have been subject to surveillance, the president is looking more like Danny Torrence, a character dismissed for constantly muttering “redrum, redrum” until someone finally looked in a mirror at the reverse image to see the true message.
Yeah, I'm not really feeling that metaphor there, but whatever. It's been that kind of year.

Now the Internet is burning up with theories that disgraced National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has "turned" and is going to testify against the Trump Administration, or at least figures attached to it. 


It's hard to imagine a three-star general can be stupid enough to be guilty of things Flynn's been accused of but that may speak to a culture of impunity in Washington, in which your misdeeds are only punished if you get on the wrong side of the wrong people.

LIKE A BAD CYBERPUNK NOVEL


One wonders if the secret war has spread outside Washington. Car service giant Uber seems to be having a major run of rotten luck lately: 
Uber Technologies Inc. is suspending its self-driving car program after one of its autonomous vehicles was involved in a high-impact crash in Tempe, Arizona, the latest incident for a company reeling from multiple crises. 
In a photo posted on Twitter, one of Uber’s Volvo self-driving SUVs is pictured on its side next to another car with dents and smashed windows. An Uber spokeswoman confirmed the incident, and the veracity of the photo, and added that the ride-hailing company is suspending its autonomous tests in Arizona until it completes its investigation and pausing its Pittsburgh operations.

The incident also comes as Uber, and Chief Executive Officer Travis Kalanick, are currently under scrutiny because of a series of scandals. The ride-hailing company has been accused of operating a sexist workplace. This month, the New York Times reported that Uber used a tool called Greyball to help drivers evade government regulators and enforcement officials. Kalanick said he needed "leadership help" after Bloomberg published a video showing him arguing with an Uber driver.
So who did Kalanick piss off? 

Coincidentally- there's that word again- the crash comes soon after Wikileaks revealed that CIA hackers had the ability to override the computer systems in automobiles. From Mashable:

WikiLeaks has published a trove of files it says are linked to the CIA's hacking operations — which apparently includes efforts to hack into cars.  
The first in a series called "Vault 7," "Year Zero" supposedly comprises 8,761 documents and files from an isolated, high-security network situated inside the CIA's Center for Cyber Intelligence in Langley, Virginia.  
"Year Zero" details the CIA's malware arsenal and "zero day" exploits against Apple iPhones, Google's Android operating system, Microsoft Windows and even Samsung TVs.  
 According to a document from 2014, the CIA was also looking at infecting the vehicle control systems used by modern cars and trucks. 
Oh, that's reassuring. Speaking of control systems, apparently pimps are controlling prostitutes with RFID chips:
It turns out this 20-something woman was being pimped out by her boyfriend, forced to sell herself for sex and hand him the money. 
 “It was a small glass capsule with a little almost like a circuit board inside of it,” he said. “It's an RFID chip. It's used to tag cats and dogs. And someone had tagged her like an animal, like she was somebody's pet that they owned.” 
This is human trafficking. It’s a marginal issue here in the U.S. for most of us. Part of that is because the average person isn’t sure what human trafficking – or modern day slavery – actually means.
Technology is our friend, right? And now this: 
Turkish Hackers Threaten To Wipe Millions Of iPhones; Demand Ransom From Apple 
Today, courtesy of CIO, we learn that a group of hackers referring to themselves as the "Turkish Crime Family", has been in direct contact with Apple and is demanding a $150,000 ransom by April 7th or they will proceed to wipe as many as 600 million apple devices for which they allegedly have passwords. 
The group said via email that it has had a database of about 519 million iCloud credentials for some time, but did not attempt to sell it until now. The interest for such accounts on the black market has been low due to security measures Apple has put in place in recent years, it said.

Since announcing its plan to wipe devices associated with iCloud accounts, the group claimed that other hackers have stepped forward and shared additional account credentials with them, putting the current number it holds at over 627 million.

According to the hackers, over 220 million of these credentials have been verified to work and provide access to iCloud accounts that don't have security measures like two-factor authentication turned on.
 
Of course, if credible, with an ask of just $150k, this is the most modest group of hackers we've ever come across.
Given the war that's erupted between the increasingly aggressive Turkish government and the EU, money may clearly not be the object here. Turkish PM Erdogan is clearly set on reconstructing the old Ottoman Empire and shivving Apple might just be part of the march.

Besides, Turkey is taking that recent coup attempt-- which is almost universally blamed on the CIA-- very personally.


Speaking of the EU, we've seen stories that Trump advisor Steve Bannon wants to dissolve the union. Which may be why Trump-adversary John McCain announced his unalloyed support for it- and the "New World Order" (his words, not mine):
The world "cries out for American and European leadership" through the EU and Nato, US senator John McCain said on Friday (24 March). 
In a "new world order under enormous strain" and in "the titanic struggle with forces of radicalism … we can't stand by and lament, we've got to be involved," said McCain, a former Republican presidential candidate who is now chairman of the armed services committee in the US Senate. 
Speaking at the Brussels Forum, a conference organised by the German Marshall Fund, a transatlantic think tank, he said that the EU and the US needed to develop "more cooperation, more connectivity". 
"I trust the EU," he said, defending an opposite view from that of US president Donald Trump, who said in January that the UK "was so smart in getting out" of the EU and that Nato was "obsolete". 
He said that the EU was "one of the most important alliances" for the US and that the EU and Nato were "the best two sums in history", which have maintained peace for the last 70 years. "We need to rely on Nato and have a Nato that adjusts to new challenges," he said.
Would McCain speak this way to a domestic audience? Of course not. Or maybe he would- I can't tell which way is up anymore. But either way it's good to know where he really stands.

Like McCain, China continues to sound a similar note of support for globalization, on which its very economic survival so desperately depends:
Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli told a gathering of Asian leaders that the world must commit to multilateral free trade under the World Trade Organization and needs to reform global economic governance. 
“The river of globalization and free trade will always move forward with unstoppable momentum to the vast ocean of the global economy,” Zhang said. China will remain a strong force in the world economy and for peace and stability, he said, adding that countries must respect one another’s core interests and refrain from undermining regional stability. 
I suppose this is why China is off the target list for our new Cold (?) Warriors.

I've resisted posting on all this because it's all so depressing. I've actually written a few pieces on this chicanery that I ended up roundfiling. But I suppose I just wanted to go on the record about all this skullduggery, for posterity's sake.



UPDATE: Sex trafficking arrests and trials continue to proliferate. Most recent bust, an international ring in Minnesota. There is way too much activity going down in too short a time for this to be spontaneous.


* Which is exactly why I refrained from commenting on it here for the most part, instead noting that it had become a kind of memetic virus in much the same way that the Franklin/Boy's Town scandal had in the 90s. (Note that prior to the election-- and Pizzagate-- Trump nemesis the Washington Post was all over the issue of sex trafficking in the nation's capital). 

† The ongoing legal and police actions coinciding with the moves to shut down the Pizzagate fringes on the Web seem like the exact kind of action one would expect if there were a serious operation at work. Shutting down the Internet chatter makes perfect sense in this context because it can only complicate cases made by prosecutors. 
          The Present Can Only Be Viewed from the Past   


2017 might seem like the hangover after a particularly-nasty meth, glue and Thunderbird bender, but it's actually a year of major anniversaries. We're coming up on the 70th Anniversary of Kenneth Arnold and Roswell (as well as the National Security Act), the 50th Anniversary of Sgt. Pepper and the Summer of Love and the centennial of the Russian Revolution. But there are a lot more observances, all kinds of 'ennials to observe. 

I thought I'd dig into a few anniversaries germane to The Secret Sun and the topics we look at here. Readers are encouraged to weigh in with their own (observations that can be counted in multiples of five and ten, that is) in the comments.

December will see the fifth anniversary of the 2012 apocalypse/ascension/ absurdity (depending on your point of view). Needless to say, most of us are still here and the skies didn't open and Nibiru didn't come crashing into the moon. So there goes another apocalypse. 

I can't help but wonder about the 2012 meme, though. As I wrote a couple years back, it certainly seems like something changed that year, that the bottom fell out somewhere but no one seemed to notice it at the time. 

I mean, Donald Trump is sitting in the White House, isn't he? If even you're a Trump supporter you have to admit this would have seemed impossible five years ago.

Maybe the Apocalypse works on a different timeline than it does in the movies. Maybe we're living in one only we can't see the forest fire for the burning trees. History can only be written from a distance.

2007 was the year Our Gods Wear Spandex was published and the year I began actively blogging on this site, so Happy Ten Year Anniversary to me. It's also the year that a newly-elected Senator - with a weird, oblique connection to the Council of Nine - announced his candidacy for President.


This week marks the 20th anniversary of the Heaven's Gate suicides, an event I've gone into some detail on this blog. Whatever the media might have you believe the Gate were a bonafide modern Gnostic sect, were serious and rigorous about their work and were deeply troubled by the emergence of the techno-surveillance state they saw emerging at the time. 

This week also marks the 20th anniversary of the last of the Order of the Solar Temple "suicides" ( rendered in quotes since many investigators suspect foul play by outside parties with the OST mass deaths). I wrote in some detail about the OST and their influence on pop culture here (the X-Files writers seemed especially fascinated with the OST and their unique status and history and the lingering questions over their deaths).

Postmortem reports claimed that the OST committed ritual suicide in order to spiritually ascend to Sirius, where they believe their souls originated from. If this is true this is another troubling link to the "Walk-Ins from Sirius" theme from Ruth Montgomery's seminal Aliens Among Us, which has also been linked to the Heaven's Gate suicides.

Last week marked the 20th anniversary of the Phoenix Lights flap, a controversial UFO sighting that caused a major media meltdown and has been the focus of a growing mythology ever since. What is particularly interesting about the Phoenix episode- however you view it-- is that it took place right down the highway from the Heaven's Gate compound in Rancho Santa Fe, CA. 

It may have been seen as the final sign that their ride was here, seeing as how the web-savvy cult was monitoring all kinds of infostreams for omens and portents. 

Next week also marks the 20th anniversary of the Outer Limits episode "Double Helix," which plays out like an idealized fantasy world version of Marshall Applewhite's most cherished beliefs. 

Seeing as how the suicides were discovered before its airing it plays like an elegy, a bizarre epitaph for the cult, its leader and their beliefs. How the hell that happened is anyone's guess.

Speaking of double helixes, 1997 saw the announcement that the first major cloning had been done, of "Dolly" the sheep. The news was broken in Roslin, Scotland, of all places (Dan Brown fans take note). More ominously it was also the year IBM's Deep Blue beat Garry Kasparov in chess. 

Coincidentally or not, Steve Jobs returned to Apple a few months later and changed the world as we knew it. One of his last projects was designing the Apple HQ, which looks like a friggin' flying saucer.

Why do all those events feel so closely entwined? We can't say we weren't warned.



1987 is the 30th anniversary of the publication of Whitley Strieber's seminal autobiography Communion, which brought the concept of alien abduction out of the fringes and into book store in America and other parts of the world. 

It's hard to explain to younger people what a phenomenon this book was, the controversy it engendered, and the effect it had on the culture. Strieber was a well-known author of best-selling horror novels, a couple of which had been adapted into movies (Wolfen and The Hunger) but never enjoyed a success like Communion, which stayed on the New York Times best-sellers list for months and sold millions worldwide.

Daytime talkshows were suddenly fora for abductees, whether real or imagined, as were popular tabloid TV shows like Unsolved Mysteries. The craze made celebrities out of Strieber, abduction researchers like Budd Hopkins and David Jacobs and later, Harvard psychologist John Mack. 

Oldline UFO researchers stewed on the sidelines, having traditionally regarded abduction reports with suspicion, if not contempt. Communion would lead to other projects, the Travis Walton biopic Fire in the Sky, The X-Files (which became an even greater phenomenon than Strieber's book), and the Steven Spielberg maxi-series Taken (which would be the SciFi Channel's most-watched series at the time of its airing).



1987 was also the year New Age seeped into the mainstream and has been insidiously rewriting its host body like a computer virus ever since. Pop culture was the medium yet again- a miniseries based on Shirley MacLaine's "spiritual authobiography" Out On a Limb was aired on ABC and planted the seeds for the Me Generation's catch-as-catch-can Theosophy 2.0. 

1987 saw "Ramtha" go wide with the publication of JZ Knight's autobiography, A State of Mind. Channeling soon became a multimiilion dollar industry, with hundreds of mini-Ramtha's popping out of the woodwork dispensing greeting card homilies for a spiritually-indiscriminate polity.

All you needed to do was squint, loll your head around meaningfully, adopt a weird quasi-British accent and learn to spout pseudo-profoundities and you were in clover.

Again, the New Age craze is hard to explain today, though in large part because the New Age is so ubiquitous today it's woven into the cultural fabric of most Western- and many non-Western- cultures. 

Yoga studios can be found in every sizable American town. Acupuncture and other "alternative" modalities are often covered by health insurance programs. Health food stores are slowly displacing conventional supermarkets and many more traditional houses of worship offer New Age programs (meditation, yoga, self-actualization) to their congregants.

1987 also saw the Harmonic Convergence (aka the "New Age Woodstock"), meant to act as the movement's big hop over the cultural fence. But its organizers (which included the original 2012 guru, Jose Arguelles) deeply misjudged the true nature of the movement and how it actually existed in the ideational biosphere. 

This wasn't a revolution, it was a slow-moving insurrection, one that subverted culture from within, all the while denying its very existence (the hallmark of a true New Ager is that they deny actually being a New Ager). Big, showy events weren't going to do the work. Tenacious, relentless but quieter actions were going to insinuate New Age into the mainstream.



1987 saw the Iran-Contra Affair- in which arms were sold to Iran in exchange for American hostages held by Iran-controlled radicals and the profits then diverted to anti-Sandinista militants in Nicaragua- become the major news story, dominating the headlines and Sunday talk shows for the entire year and into the next. 

Iran-Contra is also arguably the impetus for the true mainstreaming of conspiracy theory (just in time for the dawning of the Internet Era). Conspiracy research wasn't a fringe hobby then, it was front page news all across the world. It's just that the virus escaped from the lab and filtered down into places the mainstream media would have rather it hadn't.

But the real groundwork for the rise of conspiracy culture would be laid ten years earlier when the first fully-functional home computer, the Commodore PET was debuted at a trade show. 

Conspiracy theory may have thrived on talk radio (and short wave and ham radio, not to mention mail order) but it would explode on the Internet, even in the crudest venues of the BBS dial-in days.

At the same time the Commodore was unveiled, a new President from Plains, Georgia took office who swore to tear the lid off government corruption (and significantly, UFO secrecy) in Washington. 

Things, predictably, wouldn't work out so well for him.

1977 saw the commoditization of the modern Hollywood blockbuster-- already having birthed itself in 1975 with Steven Spielberg's Jaws. 

George Lucas' spiritual SF epic Star Wars and Spielberg's UFO fantasia Close Encounters of the Third Kind changed the rules forever (you can throw in Saturday Night Fever if you like, as it spawned the rise of the blockbuster soundtrack as well) and, as many would argue, planted the seeds for the eventual creation empoverishment of the Hollywood they created.

In today's market, doubles and triples are no longer be enough, you need to either write a movie off as a tax loss or score a grand slam blockbuster, complete with merchandising and ancillary rights.

But Star Wars and Close Encounters were such monsters because they filled a genuine void in the culture, a need for miracle and transcendence in a rapidly-secularlizing culture. In their wake the movies would become the dream theater of the masses, in the same way the great cathedrals were to the peasants of the Middle Ages.

Both films struck at the right time- NASA tested its first space shuttle at the beginning of the year, promising a new era in space exploration. One that has yet to come to pass, 40 years later. Even so the mood was right at the time.

On the other end of the ritual spectrum 1977 also saw the arrest of David Berkowitz, whom the media named as the sole "Son of Sam" killer despite the fact that witnesses had cogently and explicitly described other shooters not matching his description. 

Berkowitz himself would later claim he was a member of a sect of the Process Church of the Final Judgement, he was not the only shooter and that the killings were human sacrifices. And as fate would have it two of the men he claimed as his accomplices would die under mysterious circumstances not long after Berkowitz was arrested. 

And their father was named Sam.

Also in the summer of 1977, Elvis Presley died after a long struggle with obesity and prescription drug abuse. 

It was poetic in a Greek tragedy kind of fashion since '77 not only saw the precipitous rise of Disco as an all-consuming craze (Donna Summer had the first hit with a totally-synthesized record, "I Feel Love," that year) but also the breakthrough of punk rock and first-wave New Wave (the Sex Pistols, the Clash, Elvis Costello and Talking Heads all released their debuts), which took the basic, four to the floor rock 'n' roll Presley cut his teeth on and wed it to postmodernism, Dada and other weird, Continental theories that old-timers like the King would never have anything to do with.

Not that most of America even noticed. The Eagles' Hotel California, Pink Floyd's Animals and Fleetwood Mac's Rumors were albums most of the public were actually buying. Punk bombed bad in its first assault on American record stores and most of the first wave bands would soon break up or radically water down their styles in a bid to make it to the US Top 40. 

New Wave, which began as a marketing ploy to ease punk into the American market, would become the musical equivalent of New Age, a contagion that would insinuate itself into the host and rewrite the matrix from within. 

40 years later New Wave concepts are so dominant (irony and sarcasm not the least among them) in pop they're no longer recognized as distinct or unique. But that process began in earnest over 35 years ago, when MTV began beaming art school weirdos from England into a growing number of American living rooms. 

In short order even Jethro Tull and Bob Dylan- the onetime crunchiest of the crunchy- were recording with drum machines and sequencers.

There's more to come.

          Effect of personalized nutrition on health-related behaviour change: evidence from the Food4Me European randomized controlled trial   
Abstract
Background: Optimal nutritional choices are linked with better health, but many current interventions to improve diet have limited effect. We tested the hypothesis that providing personalized nutrition (PN) advice based on information on individual diet and lifestyle, phenotype and/or genotype would promote larger, more appropriate, and sustained changes in dietary behaviour.Methods: Adults from seven European countries were recruited to an internet-delivered intervention (Food4Me) and randomized to: (i) conventional dietary advice (control) or to PN advice based on: (ii) individual baseline diet; (iii) individual baseline diet plus phenotype (anthropometry and blood biomarkers); or (iv) individual baseline diet plus phenotype plus genotype (five diet-responsive genetic variants). Outcomes were dietary intake, anthropometry and blood biomarkers measured at baseline and after 3 and 6 months’ intervention.Results: At baseline, mean age of participants was 39.8 years (range 18–79), 59% of participants were female and mean body mass index (BMI) was 25.5 kg/m2. From the enrolled participants, 1269 completed the study. Following a 6-month intervention, participants randomized to PN consumed less red meat [-5.48 g, (95% confidence interval:-10.8,-0.09), P = 0.046], salt [-0.65 g, (−1.1,-0.25), P = 0.002] and saturated fat [-1.14 % of energy, (−1.6,-0.67), P < 0.0001], increased folate [29.6 µg, (0.21,59.0), P = 0.048] intake and had higher Healthy Eating Index scores [1.27, (0.30, 2.25), P = 0.010) than those randomized to the control arm. There was no evidence that including phenotypic and phenotypic plus genotypic information enhanced the effectiveness of the PN advice.Conclusions: Among European adults, PN advice via internet-delivered intervention produced larger and more appropriate changes in dietary behaviour than a conventional approach.

          PERPECAHAN BANGSA?   

-->
Assalamualaikum…..
Salam 1Malaysia.
Terima Kasih kepada semua yang sudi singgah ke Ruangan Senam Otak aku ini.
AKU….. membicarakan perihal kehidupan kita untuk sama-sama kita fikir dan sama-sama kita laksanakan. Demi kebaikan dan kemajuan bersama Insya Allah…..
Hari ini aku lebih berminat untuk membicarakan tentang perpecahan bangsa (kaum). Untung atau rugi dan pentingkah perpaduan dari skop keamanan dan kekuatan bangsa itu sendiri. Jika kita kaji dan perhatikan sendiri perpecahan yang wujud sekarang berpunca dari mana? Adakah hanya kerana fahaman politik semata-mata? Atau ada factor-faktor lain yang menyumbang kepada perpecahan tersebut?..... Aku cuba lontarkan pandangan dari skop kacamata aku dan dari pergaulan seharian untuk sama-sama kita bincangkan. Mungkin ini juga salah satu penyebab perpecahan yang berlaku dikala ini
~ FANATIK KEPADA PARTI POLITIK.
Banyak pecahan berlaku apabila wujud parti-parti di Malaysia yang berasaskan kaum, fahaman agama, perbagai kaum dan juga ideologi yang berbeza. Terdapat 30 buah parti yang berdaftar dengan Suruhanjaya Pilihanraya Malaysia . Dari 30buah parti itu terbahagi kepada 2 kumpulan besar iaitu Barisan Nasional yang memerintah terdiri dari gabungan Parti yang bersekutu untuk menubuhkan kerajaan setelah memenangi jumlah majoriti di dalam Parlimen dan satu lagi adalah gabungan parti-parti yang menjadi pakatan pembangkang di dalam Parlimen. Setelah wujud banyak parti-parti yang berbeza ideology dan berbeza dasar perjuangan bermakna ahli-ahli dan pengikutnya mempunyai kata-kata dan pemahaman yang tidak sama. Agen kepada pepecahan.
~ FANATIK KEPADA PEMIMPIN ATAU INDIVIDU YANG MENGETUAI SATU-SATU KUMPULAN (PARTI POLITIK MAHUPUN KUMPULAN LAIN)
Kebiasaanya jika ada parti atau kumpulan maka adalah pemimpin atau ketua yang mengetuai parti atau kumpulan tersebut. Sekiranya parti, pertubuhan, kelab atau persatuan yang berdaftar dengan Pendaftar Pertubuhan (ROS) aka nada pemilihan untuk memilih pucuk pimpinan sama ada setahun atau beberapa tahun sekali. Ianya akan berlaku melibatkan sama ada di peringkat Cawangan, Ranting, Bahagian atau peringkat Pusat atau Kebangsaan. Jika ada pertandingan, pastinya akan wujud team atau kem-kem yang menyokong mana-mana calon yang bertanding. Kebiasaannya yang akan menjadi penyakit utama yang menyebabkan pepecahan ini adalah apabila team atau kem-kem dari calon yang kalah terus beroperasi selepas pemilihan hanya untuk memastikan calon yang menang jatuh dan kalah di Pemilihan yang akan datang.
Apa yang menjadikan ianya bertambah parah apabila kumpulan yang kalah akan memburuk-burukan pemenang dan juga pengikut-pengikutnya dan kaedahnya tidak terhad dari mulut ke mulut. Sebaliknya mereka akan mengunakan Media Baru (ICT), Surat Layang atau mengupah penulis-penulis buku politik dan mereka cerita yang boleh memburukkan dan menjatuhkan reputasi musuh politik mereka. Hal ini secara tidak langsung akan mempengaruhi pengikut mereka untuk membenci pihak lawan. Agen kepada perpecahan.
~ KECEWA ATAU TIDAK BERPUASHATI KEPADA PEMIMPIN ATAU PARTI.
Perasaan ini hampir sama seperti kudis yang tidak dirawat dan akhirnya menjadi tokak atau cabuk. Kumpulan ini akan sentiasa melahirkan ayat-ayat tidak bersetuju dengan dasar dan keputusan yang dibuat oleh pemimpin atau parti. Ianya juga akan menjadi lebih bahaya jika mereka sentiasa bercakap ayat-ayat berunsur protes dan tidak mustahil akan meracuni pemikiran pihak ketiga yang hanya menerima kata-kata kumpulan ini. Agen kepada perpecahan.
~ PIHAK ATAS PAGAR
Kebiasaannya terdiri pada mereka yang rutin sehariannya sibuk dengan urusan sendiri tanpa mengambil tahu tentang senario politik atau perjalanan politik seharian. Mungkin pada sesetengah orang politik mengatakan kelompok ini tidak merbahaya dan mungkin seperti pelakon tambahan di dalam drama atau filem. Tetapi mereka juga adalah sebahagiaan daripada kumpulan pepecahan.
Pepecahan bangsa ini wujub bukan hanya dikalangan bangsa melayu sahaja. Tetapi melibatkan semua bangsa di Malaysia. Apa yang jelas keadaan ini merupakan gambaran kepada kekuatan parti politik yang tidak stabil diantara yang memerintah mahupun yang membangkang. Ianya boleh menyumbang kepada penjajahan dan pencerobohan pihak asing jika pepecahan sesama kita kian ketara. Jika tidak dijajah secara kuasa memerintah, penjajahan minda juga amat membahayakan kita dan generasi akan datang.
Kenapa ianya akan mudah berlaku? Jika ada perpecahan maka terhakislah kesetiaan dan akan wujudlah pengkhianatan. Percayalah jika masalah ini tidak dibendung atau tidak dirawat, satu hari nanti generasi akan membenci dan tidak menghargai hasil kerja kita. Fikir-fikirkan lah…….
