Friday October 27th – Open Thread

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    Canadian artist Rob Gonsalvo has made quite a career out of confusing people with his art.

    He’s been a surrealist painter since he was just 12, and he uses his knowledge of architecture, portraits, and perspective to make mundane scenes otherworldly.

    Here’s a few of his works:

    “The Sun Sets Sail”

    “Arboreal Office”

    “Cathedral of Commerce”

      As my eldest d., (b. 1979) and I were discussing, technology makes it easy to act ugly today.
      In the past, if you wanted to spread an unflattering photo of someone, you had to
      a) take the picture
      b) take your camera to 1-Hour Photo
      c) wait an hour (or until after school)
      d) make some copies of the photo
      e) spread them around.

      (Yes, a Polaroid would make this easier, buy who lugged one of those around?
      Plus, no copies…)

      Same goes for slam books (remember those?).

        Yes, Instant messagings, Instant rumosr, Instant slanders, Instant lies. Yes, it has gone ugly–Sad.

        It”s the same ‘mind set method’ the MSM (and Clintons) uses. MSM tries to get ahead with their fake news to the public before the real truth comes out/gets blocked. MSM hopes to lock in their fake news as “true news” in people’s minds, so that the clueless masses won’t hear the real news/truth. Hollywood then moves in and hammers it home into the brains of the Duped, thru talk show, movies, music, magazines, and esp. late night shows.

        It’s why President Trump’s Twitter has been highly successful, building up a movement of Truth, Truth Seekers and reality.

        The heart of MAN have gotten much uglier, cruelier, hardened, and colder as they find new methods of destroying the good men and women.

      That makes me think of “The Swan” from “Carnival of the Animals” by Saint Saens, where a swan is pining over the loss of her mate. Here is a recording of Pablo Casals playing it (over 100 years ago, in 1915!).

      He was probably the greatest cellist ever (Feuermann, Piatigorsky, Klengel, and Boccherini notwithstanding) and was from Catalonia (which is why you’ll see huge arguments over “Pau” versus “Paul” versus “Pablo”). One person said “I have heard others play the Cello but only Pau Cassals can make it cry”…

    Chilling ‘high school massacre’ posts of Columbine-obsessed teen duo arrested with guns, a bomb and a hit-list of students ‘they planned to slaughter at their school’
    26 October 2017

    The two students accused of planning to blow up their high school with a homemade bomb made a number of disturbing social media posts about the Columbine massacre and feeling suicidal.

    Alfred Dupree and Victoria McCurley, both 17, have been charged as adults with attempted murder and making terror threats after police received a tip off they were planning to bomb Etowah High School in Cherokee County, Georgia.

    Now it appears that the pair made a number of unsettling posts on social media, under secret pseudonyms, about mass shootings and suicide.

    One post, by McCurley, showed a picture of the High School Musical movie poster, which had been altered to read ‘High School Massacre’ – with photo-shopped photos of students being gunned down.

    McCurley also made multiple references to the Columbine High School massacre which killed 15 in 1999.

    […]

    She posted a picture of the Columbine killers Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold with the threatening message ‘Fear the nobodies’ and another surveillance still of the shooting which read ‘Outrun my gun’.

    McCurley also made multiple posts featuring guns, knives and swords, and even posted a picture of a hand drawn pentagram with the words ‘hail Satan’.

    Woman gets knocked out cold, bystanders stop to take selfies
    October 26, 2017

    Shocking surveillance video shows the moment a Pittsburgh woman was knocked out cold by a man on a busy sidewalk — but that’s not the worst of it.

    The footage also shows the woman being beaten and robbed by bystanders — who proceed to take pictures of her, including selfies — as she lay unconscious on the ground.

    […]

    In the clip, the woman appears to approach her attacker for a brief second right before he throws his haymaker. A group of men can then be seen walking over to her — cell phones in hand, snapping pictures and video — as she lays unconscious on the sidewalk.

    “Nobody called 911 to help her,” a police source told KDKA. “They took what looks like her phone while she’s out cold.”

    Shortly after leaving, the men reportedly returned and began taking even more photos.

    “They actually come back,” the source said. “A kid lays beside her and takes a selfie.”

      It is more than sad that so many people see their present, no matter what it may be, as the only present of any importance.
      Ran into an old co-worker at the grocery last week. She told me had had a recent fall from a curb, and when she fell, she ended up in the street.
      She was hurt, and couldn’t stand up, and cars just drove around her! And no one on the sidewalk could be bothered to help her.
      Finally, a Veteran stopped to help her, and they were mutually dismayed at the callousness of so many so pre-occupied with themselves that it did not occur to them to help her.

    Ellen gets slammed for tweet about Katy Perry’s breasts
    October 26, 2017

    […]
    In the wake of the recent Harvey Weinstein scandal, of which DeGeneres was an outspoken critic, dedicating part of her show to sharing her thoughts on the “#MeToo” movement, many fans were quick to mention the idea that this tweet wouldn’t fly had a man posted it. Many began responding to the tweet with the hashtag “#doublestandard.” Others went as far as to compare her to Weinstein and call her a “pig.”

    As The Wrap notes, actor Michael Rapaport caught wind of the tweet and voiced his displeasure to Ellen, arguing that “the world would stop” if a man had sent this tweet.

    Piers Morgan too speculated that, had a man tweeted something similar, Ellen would be leading the “cries of ‘SEXIST PIG!’”

    Previously, the star dedicated her opening monologue to denouncing the growing environment of sexual harassment in Hollywood with an impassioned speech.

    “This is not a male thing or a female thing, it is not a Hollywood or political thing, this is a human thing and it happens in the workplace, it happens in families, it happens all over the world and we are all the same,” she said. “We all want the same thing, we want respect, love and kindness. And if I could have those three things and an iPhone X, I’d be happy.”

        Yes, it was a very different time. Feelings and emotions were very very raw. It was bad timing for this runner, but the runner knew what he was getting himself into. America obviously wasn’t ready to play Kumbaya at that time.

        My aunt’s husband was a POW there and in the whole time I knew him he was a man of very very little words and his only brother was killed and was buried in Punch Bowl. I visited Punch Bowl decades later and made a point to seek out his grave, took a photo, and sent copies to him. I was told later he cried which he never had before as he nor his parents never got to see his grave.

        My dad had many close friends at our church who, like Dad, were WW2 vets. One was in the Bataan March and survived…another wonderful man of few words. Another was on a tugboat, patrolling Pearl Harbor when they were attacked. There were others in that group my Dad (President Trump reminds me a lot of my dad, wanting to get things done and be positive, helping others) had gather together to minister to…they all had fought in the Pacific as well as Europe, like Dad was (Army Air Corp B-24 in No. Africa/Italy/Israel). They all hated the WW2 Japanese as the Japanese were vicious and unspeakable. Yes, it was different back then, but now it’s all good-thank God, the forgiveness of Christian soldiers slowly came thru. We are the one nation that have the capablity to do so. It is why it is important we hold onto and value our American Christian heritage.

        President Trump reminds me a lot of my dad, wanting to get things done quickly, being positive, helping others and kidding around, too. (I so get President Trump’s kidding around.) Dad would have LOVED President Trump, saying “It”s about d— time”.

        Sorry I rambled on, but it is more important we keep these WW2 vets’ stories alive as it is being faded into obscurity. I have stories of what happened to my dad but that is for another day.

        Sure he can imitate a typical social group that meets in person (but not in heart).

        If you want to experience *how* the Body of Christ is *different* from a social setting, you probably need to visit a country where *persecution* means you could die.

        Rare is the fellowship that allows the Holy Spirit to breathe the deep abiding love of the Father into their hearts for each other, for those outside the church, and for their enemies.

    Sorry to pollute things here with such a person, but I noticed today that Kathy Griffin has added yet another person to her “feud” list, some guy named Andy Cohen, who is evidently someone in show business.
    The reason I bring this up is because Ms. Griffin is feuding with more and more people, but way back before Donald Trump ran for president, she still practiced “feuding” with more successful men, as a way to hitch her wagon to their star.
    https://www.thewrap.com/jerry-seinfeld-gave-kathy-griffin-instant-diarrhea-video/
    Notice how she parlayed a bit part on Seinfeld into more widespread name recognition, due to her willingness to knock the star publicly.

    She may pretend her Trump attacks were based on some sort of ethical concerns, but it was just more of the same status-seeking at someone else’s expense.
    I only bring this up to draw attention to the fact that no one serious is giving her the time of day.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
