Ok 8, take back everything I said. I c u can feel ur music 2.
Tomorrow, the people of and around Springfield, Missouri are marching in honor of Hailey Owens and her family. Hailey was the 10-year old girl who was brutally kidnapped and murdered on Tuesday. We intend to conduct ourselves peacefully and respectfully; however, Westboro Baptist Church (a.k.a. Westboro hate-club) has decided to picket and protest the event. I and Mrs. Gump will be among the marchers/human shields. Anybody good for our bail money? 😉
Sure Bubba, we can ask Jack to give the money we send him every week (Realm Rental), that should be enough to cover any bail.
I heard Jack invested all Realm Rent Money into Haggis Futures????
Good Morning Realm,,,,
Saw that Bebe stopped in for a bit!!,,,,wherever you are Bebe,,,good morning to ya!!!
Constance Demby – Novus Magnificat: Through The Stargate-Part 1
The title Novus Magnificat is Latin for “New Magnificat”. Inspired by Western classical and sacred music, Novus Magnificat was self-defined as “A Magnificat and Exaltate for digital orchestra, choral voices, and special electronic images” and “Dedicated to the Infinite One…”
The music was performed using the Emulator II, one of the first digital sampling synthesizers available: this provided and combined the sound of real symphonic instruments and choirs under a single keyboard, hooked to a Roland Juno 60 “for arpeggiated effects and enhanced sounds”.
Nothing being written down or scored in advance, the album was directly composed and recorded in 1985 by Demby at the keyboard.
The music was further enhanced with electronic textures by composer Michael Stearns and refined with record co-producer and label co-founder Anna Turner.The result was termed, “Music conjured by the future, rooted in the Western sacred tradition.”
Will post Part 2 tomorrow…..

The Broken-Down grace of Bill Murray
WITH CAREER VIEW, THE DISSOLVE OFFERS AN EXTENSIVE SURVEY, AND CRITICAL SUMMARY, OF A CAREER IN FILM.
In January 2014, Bill Murray created a minor pop-culture event by participating in a Reddit Ask Me Anything chat to promote his latest movie, The Monuments Men. He isn’t a recluse—he appears in movies regularly, and he’s a favorite guest of David Letterman—but he’s probably as far off the grid as someone can be while still remaining a major movie star.
It didn’t seem to matter that Murray was promoting one of his lesser movies, or that he isn’t the star of The Monuments Men, but part of its ensemble. All that mattered was that Bill Murray was talking directly to his fans in a manner that was funny, smart, charming, and at times even mildly revealing.
It was, in other words, precisely what fans wanted from him. In his own strange way, Murray has always been a man of the people, a performer whose essential relationships are with his fans and fellow artists, not with the media, studios, publicity people, or any other part of a show-business machine he’s done everything in his power to avoid. In that respect, the AMA made perfect sense.

For all you Bill Murray fans,,a great break-down of his career,,the SNL yrs,,,and everything!!
D.C. Insider: There’s a Shadow Govt. Running the Country, and It’s Not Up for Re-Election
Power centers in DC and the corporate corridors of Manhattan and Silicon Valley are calling the shots.
BillMoyers.com / By Mike Lofgren
There is the visible government situated around the Mall in Washington, and then there is another, more shadowy, more indefinable government that is not explained in Civics 101 or observable to tourists at the White House or the Capitol.
The former is traditional Washington partisan politics: the tip of the iceberg that a public watching C-SPAN sees daily and which is theoretically controllable via elections. The subsurface part of the iceberg I shall call the Deep State, which operates on its own compass heading regardless of who is formally in power.
How did I come to write an analysis of the Deep State, and why am I equipped to write it? As a congressional staff member for 28 years specializing in national security and possessing a top secret security clearance, I was at least on the fringes of the world I am describing, if neither totally in it by virtue of full membership nor of it by psychological disposition. But like virtually every employed person, I became to some extent assimilated by the culture of the institution I worked for, and only by slow degrees, starting before the invasion of Iraq, did I begin fundamentally to question the reasons of state that motivate the people who are, to quote George W. Bush, “the deciders.”
a rather lengthy read,,,but worth it; http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/dc-insider-theres-shadow-govt-running-country-and-its-not-re-election?paging=off¤t_page=1#bookmark
I’ve always known the Deep State as the Government…Moarnin’, Major!….8-)

Ukrainian Protesters Take Control Of Presidential Offices In Kiev
Reuters | by Timothy Heritage and Pavel Polityuk
KIEV, Feb 22 (Reuters) – Protesters seized the Kiev office of President Viktor Yanukovich on Saturday and the opposition demanded a new election be held by May, as the pro-Russian leader’s grip on power rapidly eroded following bloodshed in the capital.
Anti-government demonstrators entered Yanukovich’s compound in the capital and were controlling the entrance, a Reuters reporter said at the scene. Security guards were present inside the building but were not trying to expel the protesters.

I wonder what’s going to happen after the Olympics are over,,,and the camera’s
and spotlights are no longer on “Mother Russia??”
I’m sure Vlad the Scumbag has some kind of plan…
we shall see…
Yes, I posted something similar yesterday. What will happen when the spotlight is turned off? Almost to horrible to guess. Let’s hope the international community stays focused.
Mercury is an average distance of 48 million miles from Earth, and is the closest planet to the Sun,,I’m gonna go out on a limb and say it freakin hot there,,ok?,,Retrograde stuff,,,don’t know about all that,,Mercury is the crap we put in thermometers,,,and we throw it in our oceans
so we can eat it in our Tuna Club Samiches…
Although am still pretty cranky and feeling out of sorts,,,,and such,,,I just don’t know
Mars,,,is another planet,,,and is also a candy bar 🙂
Neptune,,,is another planet,,and the UnderSea King,,,and a good friend to AquaMan 🙂
One dismisses the influence of the planet Mercury on the human experience at their own peril….8-)

Good Morning! Off for a rather ‘damp’ bike-ride, back later…
A brief Cycling Update:
Froomey strikes again! Chris Froome (Sky) has once again mastered Green Mountain and takes the overall race-lead in the Tour of Oman in the ‘queen’ Stage 6 (with one more bumpy stage to go tomorrow) – Froome is looking to grab his second consecutive overall-victory in this race. Columbian Rigoberto Uran (Omega Pharma / Quickstep, and Froome’s ex-Sky teammate) is 2nd both in the stage and the GC, Tejay Van Garderen (BMC) third in the stage followed by Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha) and Robert Gesink (Belkin).

Good morning, Realm.
Sandy Koufax was hit in the head by a line drive at Dodger spring training yesterday.
He’s 78 years old, but. apparently. okay.
Lebron James suffered a broken nose.
(I guess that’s the only way to stop the man.)
Hope you all have a good day.
Bubba……if you see this,
I will bail you out…… no problem.
Those folks from Westboro are beyond cruel,
just hateful, mean people.
