Ike Can’t See Clearly Now, Lorena’s Gone. Ike Can’t Seal All Opticals In Mauway.

Monday, 7 October 2019 by

Her pet turtle burped as she took the photo and the turtle focused for the first time. I have no idea who Lorena or Ike are, and I had to google Mauway. I think it’s somewhere in the Philippines near Manila. All I know is that they make great reusable large envelopes and folders there.

Occasional Cortex got punked by a girl advocating eating babies, but that’s not the funny part. AOC’s non-reaction and acceptance of the premis IS.

Are you a freelance worker? Are you a tech guru? Are you self-employed? California AB5 should interest you. Employers and consultants are about to get screwed.

There’s a movement to recall California’s Governor Gavin Newsom (Nancy Pelosi’s nephew). Here’s his response as shown on the Petition:

Nah. Can’t be Newsom’s socialist policies that are crippling the State’s economy. No way. Nope. LOL

Saturday Matinee – The Sounds Of Water & Beer, Chick Music, Ten Years After & Robbie Robertson

Saturday, 5 October 2019 by

Just in time for Oktoberfest. [h/t Nancy H.]

I’m speechless. I hope Archie McPhee got some royalty bucks from this one [via].

Ten Years After was one of my favorite blues-rock bands before I even knew what blues-rock was. Alvin Lee was killer.

Yeah. This. I never quite knew what the song meant, but I still like it [found here.].

Have a great weekend, folks, beware of liars, & we’ll see you back here tomorrow for stuff.

The Drolatic Dreams of Pantagruel (1565)

Tuesday, 1 October 2019 by

“In 1565, twelve years after the death of François Rabelais (1494-1553) — the French Renaissance author best known for his satirical masterpiece The Life of Gargantua and of Pantagruel, the bawdy tale of two giants, Gargantua and his son Pantagruel — the Parisian bookseller and publisher Richard Breton brought out Les songes drolatiques de Pantagruel (The drolatic dreams of Pantagruel). The slim volume, save a short preface from Breton, is made up entirely of images — 120 woodcuts depicting a series of fantastically bizarre and grotesque figures, reminiscent of some of the more inventive and twisted creations of Brueghel or Bosch.”
[…]
“Despite the claims (echoed too in the book’s subtitle), the book’s wonderful images are very unlikely to be the work of Rabelais himself — the attribution probably a clever marketing ploy by Breton. […] The creator of the prints is now widely thought to be François Desprez, a French engraver and illustrator behind two other sets of imaginative designs, similar in style.”

Those prints remind me of Jim Woodring’s stuff.

[CORRECTIVE UPDATE: Apparently the story posted by The Federalist on 27 September 2019 (linked at top) is inaccurate. The US Intel Community accepts hearsay (info from second-hand sources) but won’t act on it unless they uncover first-hand corroboration. If there’s no corroboration, the hearsay is dismissed as such. In other words, the rules did not change, but their website and the reporting form did.]
