Y Fait Chaud



Ce n'était qu'un rêve



Nice voice for her age.

Le Vieillard Pleure Ses Ennuis



I find it ironic that Country music originated in the North, New Brunswick to be specific.

Laurie LeBlanc is from New Brunswick. This song is a great example of Franglais.

Lady Gaga and the death of sex

Finally, someone writes an honest review of Lady Gaga. Early on, I kind of liked Lady Gaga, but quickly she revealed herself to be a shallow thief of the ideas of more talented people. Her latest video was nothing more than a verbose pretense to say, "Look, I have a vagina."

I'm only quoting the first paragraph of the review, so please do click on the link and read the whole thing. It's a rewarding read.

RE: Lady Gaga and the death of sex

Lady Gaga is the first major star of the digital age. Since her rise, she has remained almost continually on tour. Hence, she is a moving target who has escaped serious scrutiny. She is often pictured tottering down the street in some outlandish get-up and fright wig. Most of what she has said about herself has not been independently corroborated… “Music is a lie”, “Art is a lie”, “Gaga is a lie”, and “I profusely lie” have been among Gaga’s pronouncements, but her fans swallow her line whole…

Ska de la tierra



Me dio ganar a entrar "la tierra".


I can't wait to hear her new CD. It's been five years.






"La Bicha" literally means "little female bug." It's used for young women, between about 14 and 19 years old.

I love her dialect. It's my favorite Spanish dialect.

I was looking for "Un Homme" by Annie Villeneuve, but YouTube has no good version by her, so here's a cover that I liked.




OK, so I really like this woman's nose. I think it's sexy. (It must be the French in me).

Here's a live version by the real Annie.

A Religion of Peace?

The Old Testament is a fairy tale about a bully God that murders and pillages for the benefit of his homies, so Rabbi Ovadia Yosef is just following in that tradition of hate.

RE: Abbas, Palestinians should die: Israeli rabbi

JERUSALEM — An influential Israeli rabbi has said God should strike the Palestinians and their leader with a plague, calling for their death in a fiery sermon before Middle East peace talks set to begin next week.

"Abu Mazen and all these evil people should perish from this earth," Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, spiritual head of the religious Shas party in Israel's government, said in a sermon late Saturday, using Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's popular name.

"God should strike them and these Palestinians -- evil haters of Israel -- with a plague," the 89-year-old rabbi said in his weekly address to the faithful, excerpts of which were broadcast on Israeli radio Sunday...

Night Riders Lament



I relate to this song. Back when I was 18, I heard Jerry Jeff Walker's version of this song and I knew, then, that this song was me. 30 years later I still believe it is me. I've spent most of my life wandering and there is nothing I love more than solitude and my wanderlust has shown me more of the world than most people will ever see.


I've never been a cowboy, but I think the deeper meaning of this song is wanderlust, solitude, and being one with the universe. It is the choice of adventure and experience over materialism. I regret nothing I've lost.

Jerry Jeff Walker-LA Freeway from Austin Pickers 1984

It might surprise some people that Jerry Jeff Walker is one of my favorite artists. I've been a fan of this guy since 1980.




The above song is one of my favorites by Jerry Jeff because it strikes a chord in my of my feelings when I left California for the last time (in terms of my place of residence. There are many things I like about California, but I love New England much, much more. All things considered, I believe the negatives of California outweigh the positives. Heck, even Texas is a better place to live than California.)

This next song is aimed at pissing off all of the radical feminists out there.

Yeah, I've got some redneck in me.






I'm a New Englander, but I lived a total of 7 or 8 years of my life in Texas and some of it rubbed off on me.



I end with my favorite Jerry Jeff Walker song, Night Rider's Lament. In some ways, this is my song.

Taylor Swift - You Belong With Me

I wish my life was still so simple as to have her problems. Taylor really speaks well to what it is like to be an adolescent. When you get to my age and you look back to the feelings she sings about, they seem light years away and it is difficult to resist the nostalgia for such a simpler existence - the existence of youth.

Paulina, I like her for reasons completely different than those for which I like Julieta. I can't write them here without sounding like a pig, so I'll refrain.

Arctic greenhouse may lead to farms on Mars

Canada rocks!

RE: Arctic greenhouse may lead to farms on Mars

Lettuce, radishes and beets have been planted in a remote Arctic greenhouse, where researchers are learning how to grow crops without human contact in an environment that can't normally support edible plants.

Alain Berinstain, the Canadian Space Agency scientist in charge of the project, said no other greenhouse is designed to operate autonomously like the Arthur Clarke Mars Greenhouse on Devon Island in Nunavut.

"Every greenhouse needs … electrical power, it needs heat and it needs people, to some extent," said Berinstain, director of science and academic development at the space agency. "The way we provide the people is through a remote link."

On the flip side, humans will need greenhouse-grown plants to provide food and clean the air and water if they begin to spend a lot of time on another planet or the moon, Berinstain said

The greenhouse is at the Mars Institute's Haughton-Mars Project research station, which is staffed for just a few weeks each summer. The surrounding environment is a polar desert where temperatures can dip below freezing even in July and there is little annual precipitation.

"There's very little vegetation, [it's] very rocky," Berinstain said. "It's beautifully desolate."

The harsh conditions and rocky, Mars-like landscape make it a popular spot to test robots, space suits and other technology designed for use on other planets.

"Wherever we end up operating greenhouses on other planets, it will be an extreme environment," Berinstain said. "So it's about learning to work with a greenhouse that way."

The project was established in 2002 after the Canadian Space Agency heard the Mars Institute was interested in having a greenhouse at the research station.

The researchers visit every summer to set up a spring crop and a fall crop. They also upgrade the computer systems that let them monitor the plants and keep them watered and warm during the growing seasons.

The greenhouse is heated with propane during the summer, and the computers run on solar power. Water comes from a nearby stream and some of it is saved over the winter. The plants are monitored with webcams and sensors that detect the acidity of the nutrient solution, the water levels and the temperature.

When fall arrives, the propane runs out, the plants freeze and the computers are kept running with wind power during the 24-hour darkness of the Arctic winter...

TU M'AIMES QUAND MÊME



This is a nice song, but for reasons of greed it is cut-off early.

Monitor

I recently saw this artist in concert (in a room about the size of your average living room). She is AWESOME.





She has a large lesbian following. I don't know whether she is a lesbian, but I seem to have a thing for women like her. Perhaps I'm a lesbian trapped in a man's body? Who knows. She's about 25 years old, definitely too young for me.

Piel canela



Natalia LaFourcade is someone I absolutely must see in concert. Can you believe she is 26 years old? She has such a beautiful voice. Recently, I saw her friend Ximena Sariñana in concert in an extremely small venue. She was an arms length in front of me.

King Tut’s DNA is Western European

I don't find this very surprising. The same haplogroup is found in Greece, just across the big pond from Egypt and we know that Greeks and Egyptians exchanged DNA. Political "correctness" is the primary motivator of theories dismissing the presence of Europeans in places like Africa, East Asia, and the Americas, but there is solid genetic evidence proving that Europeans spread into North Africa, Asia (what is now called Xinjiang), and North America (the X halpogroup).

While it is true that the first homosapians evolved in Africa, it is not true that we stopped evolving in Africa. Recent evidence proves that Europeans are part Neanderthal and we know that the Neanderthal became Neanderthal in Europe and not in Africa (though there antecedent species came out of Africa). We also know that the color of European skin evolved in Asia and not in Africa.

RE: King Tut’s DNA is Western European

Despite the refusal of the Secretary General of the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities, Zahi Hawass, to release any DNA results which might indicate the racial ancestry of Pharaoh Tutankhamen, the leaked results reveal that King Tut’s DNA is a 99.6 percent match with Western European Y chromosomes.

The DNA test results were inadvertently revealed on a Discovery Channel TV documentary filmed with Hawass’s permission — but it seems as if the Egyptian failed to spot the giveaway part of the documentary which revealed the test results.

Hawass previously announced that he would not release the racial DNA results of Egyptian mummies — obviously because he feared the consequences of such a revelation...

When I explained it to her, she guided me into the town, which was a primarily Black town with English and Garifuna speaking residents. The town was named by racist white Dole Fruit Company owners many years back.

ISRAEL ATTACKS JUSTICE BOAT; KIDNAPS HUMAN RIGHTS WORKERS; CONFISCATES MEDICINE, TOYS AND OLIVE TREES

[23 miles off the coast of Gaza, 15:30pm] - Today Israeli Occupation Forces attacked and boarded the Free Gaza Movement boat, the SPIRIT OF HUMANITY, abducting 21 human rights workers from 11 countries, including Noble laureate Mairead Maguire and former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (see below for a complete list of passengers). The passengers and crew are being forcibly dragged toward Israel.

"This is an outrageous violation of international law against us. Our boat was not in Israeli waters, and we were on a human rights mission to the Gaza Strip," said Cynthia McKinney, a former U.S. Congresswoman and presidential candidate. "President Obama just told Israel to let in humanitarian and reconstruction supplies, and that's exactly what we tried to do. We're asking the international community to demand our release so we can resume our journey."

According to an International Committee of the Red Cross report released yesterday, the Palestinians living in Gaza are "trapped in despair." Thousands of Gazans whose homes were destroyed earlier during Israel's December/January massacre are still without shelter despite pledges of almost $4.5 billion in aid, because Israel refuses to allow cement and other building material into the Gaza Strip. The report also notes that hospitals are struggling to meet the needs of their patients due to Israel's disruption of medical supplies.

"The aid we were carrying is a symbol of hope for the people of Gaza, hope that the sea route would open for them, and they would be able to transport their own materials to begin to reconstruct the schools, hospitals and thousands of homes destroyed during the onslaught of "Cast Lead". Our mission is a gesture to the people of Gaza that we stand by them and that they are not alone" said fellow passenger Mairead Maguire, winner of a Noble Peace Prize for her work in Northern Ireland.

Just before being kidnapped by Israel, Huwaida Arraf, Free Gaza Movement chairperson and delegation co-coordinator on this voyage, stated that: "No one could possibly believe that our small boat constitutes any sort of threat to Israel. We carry medical and reconstruction supplies, and children's toys. Our passengers include a Nobel peace prize laureate and a former U.S. congressperson. Our boat was searched and received a security clearance by Cypriot Port Authorities before we departed, and at no time did we ever approach Israeli waters."

Arraf continued, "Israel's deliberate and premeditated attack on our unarmed boat is a clear violation of international law and we demand our immediate and unconditional release."

101 uses sought for ex’s wedding dress

I wish I had thought of this. Ideas of what I could have done with my ex-wife's wedding dress are flooding my mind. I think the best thing I could have done with it is to pay a prostitute to wear it for a night, fucking every man that offered her 10 bucks. I think it would have been appropriate. (And about that naked picture of her on her honeymoon in Cancun, the one that her current husband posted on the Internet?)

RE: 101 uses sought for ex’s wedding dress

Kevin Cotter never imagined the day would arrive when he’d be flossing his teeth with wedding-dress fabric. Or using a wedding dress as a yoga mat. Or straining pasta with wedding-dress mesh.

But, of course, life takes wildly unexpected turns sometimes. And when your high school sweetheart and wife of 12 years abruptly walks out the door, leaving you stunned and single in your mid-30s, it can send you reeling.

That’s what happened to Cotter last July. He turned to close family members to help him get through the earliest — and most difficult — phases of adjusting to singlehood for the first time in his adult life...

Ximena Sariñana: From the Concert I Was At Last Night




I had the pleasure of attending a concert by Ximena Sariñana last night. This is a video from the actual concert I was at. I was about 15 feet from her. It was a very small venue. The only unfortunate thing was that some of the women at the concert were loud and obnoxious. Apparently, Ximena has many loud and rude lesbian fans. The other fans were just fine.



Ximena is pretty well known in Mexico. Here are a few of her videos...
