Alfonso Cuaron’s Oscar-nominated arthouse film about his Mexico City childhood is coming to the Broadway stage! So far, this is all they’ve got for the musical adaptation, but, you must admit, this nails the Social Message of Roma in song and dance form:

    I haven’t seen this but ROMA seems to indicate HBD.

    If some white director made a movie about a black maid or some such NOW — “we had this submissive and mostly quiet black maid who served us like a dog” — , people would be offended by the idealized depiction of black as obedient figure.

    But no one seems bothered that a brown woman is depicted in this manner. An image of a duty-bound brown woman who devotes her life to serving privileged whites. Even progs seem okay with the stereotype, and I guess it’s somewhat okay because the white family is globo-libby.

    Why do you think so many are for open borders? The more immigrants, the more docile, diligent maids, and the less they'll have to be paid.

    How about the maids? Should they get a maid too? This could go on ad infinitum. It’s little brown maids the whole way down.

    A SIMPLE FAVOR – Utter filth

    ANNIHILATION – Total trash. imagine combo of female ghost busters with Tarkovsky’s STALKER.

    GAUGUIN – Nice work

    KILL LIST – Demented but well-done

    ENEMY – Pretentious Kafkaesque nonsense

    KILLING OF SACRED DEER – Pseudo-art-film feigns meaning to push sado-masochism

    ANTMAN AND WASP – The novelty of the original has worn off. Some nifty effects but more of the same with less charm and wit.

    THE WITCH – Really well-done but can’t hold a candle to BLACKCOAT’S DAUGHTER on the subject of dark magic.

    EIGHTH GRADE – 90 min of kids scrolling through smartphones. Zzzzzzz.

    That's news to me, but I guess that's what I get for never paying attention to lyrics. I never liked that song too much, as the title song of Harvest, and the hit Heart of Gold were much better tunes. I don't want to talk about Alabama, maybe the worst cut of Neil Young evah, but this is my favorite only because I learned to pick it on the guitar (not so hard - I'm no Authentic Jazz Musician, mind you.)

  6. To America’s elite ruling class the real crisis in the 1960s was the uppity negro’s decision to abandon his role in society as a harmless and deferential servant, so Teddy Kennedy, Emanuel Celler and Jacob Javits changed the national immigration laws so Leonard and Felicia Bernstein could have a cheap Costa Rican maid in their Greenwich Village apartment.

  9. The Best Picture Oscar nominees this year are supposed to be an incredible reflection of diversity, of the suppressed voices of the marginalized and downtrodden of the world. The funny thing is, though, when you look closely at them, they all seem to demonstrate something very different.


    Black Panther
    is a work of pure fantasy based on a concept originally concocted by white/Jewish writers. Furthermore, it largely favorably depicts a black monarchical ethno-state that fiercely guards its borders with the outside world.

    BlackKKKlansman fabricates the bomb plot at the climax of its story. As Steve has pointed out, this is pretty much the most boring true story ever filmed: A black cop calls up the KKK, pretends to be white over the phone, a white cop using the same name infiltrates the Klan, and…nothing happens. I wonder if normies ever reflect on what a funny coincidence it is that, while of course David Duke’s KKK is the most monstrous group of barbarians in all of human history, it just so happens that they weren’t actually committing any crimes in the true story the film is based on, and consequently a crime had to be manufactured out of thin air to blame them for?

    Bohemian Rhapsody is about a Marginalized Minority Person Of Color, right? Well, not exactly. Mercury was a Parsi, one of the most successful ethno-religious groups per capita in India. It’s funny how the non-white people who we’re told need to be celebrated for the sake of Diversity are so often from the most successful groups within their homelands (e.g. the Igbo in Nigeria.)

    The Favourite‘s suggestion of lesbianism at the court of Queen Anne seems to be at least very speculative and probably totally fictitious. Furthermore, it’s funny how much, in this supposed era of democracy and equality, people continue to enjoy hearing stories about the machinations of powerful hereditary nobles and royals, like Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones.

    Green Book‘s depiction of the friendship between a black musician and his white chauffeur was fictitious, according to a family member of the musician. I haven’t researched this exhaustively, but it seems that there is considerable controversy about the truthfulness of the film’s story.

    Roma is of course directed by Conquistador descendant Alfonso Cuarón, who, though now renowned for making a film about how great Mexico is to live in, just so happens to have been living in London for the past couple decades, personally.

    Why is it so hard for Hollywood to tell a mostly accurate pro-The Narrative story about genuinely marginalized people of color/women/gays? (Of course, we know why here, but this might be a useful starting point when trying to redpill less educated acquaintances.)

There's no reason a group of working families couldn't work that all out for themselves, except for one - Big Gov.

Is it permissible to actually write the letters H_i_t_l_e_r without being branded a white supremacist? Oh wait, I’m Syrian, too. so for intersectionality points, the answer is yes, but because it’s Syrian intersectionality, that’s a double negative, so the answer is no. Oh, double-plus wait!

    Moore is a skilled propagandist.

    He wants to sell economic leftism to middle and working class whites. Showing happy white socialist utopias providing benefits to employed white people works much better than brown NEETS with burkas on welfare for life.

    If we had the demographics of 1995 I'd agree with Moore. Now it's too late. The purge of white guys from the economic left party makes this especially obvious today.

    I admit I never saw The Help either, and I don’t plan to. Pretty sure I got the picture’s message from the trailer.

    My grandparents had a black maid for almost 2 decades. They had to fire her when they became infirm and needed a medically trained helper instead. The maid was a sour old bird with a moustache, always grumbling to herself about something, though she didn’t have to do much.

    Pretty sure she arranged a burglary of their home a couple of months after she was let go. Unless mutts from Southeast DC always know to break open a locked basement credenza to find old, engraved silver bowls and jewel encrusted daggers from Saudi Arabia. While leaving everything else alone.

    Which of course is ... the problem.

    One of the scams the left has run--mostly under the enviro lable--is to make two children the norm for a successful marriage. But if you have feminism, female careerism, late marriage--which of course creates more bioligical fertility failures--a fair amount of no marriage, divorce, then two-children in successful marriages is ... drastic population decline!

    If you have any sort of "modern" behavior of late or skipped or failed marriage then norm for successful marriages of healthy people needs to be 3 kids, just to maintain population.

    For example
    10% -- 4+ (call it 4.5 for the math)
    40% -- 3
    15% -- 2 (ran out of time of just ... enough)
    15% -- 1 (ran out of time or marriage fails with introduction of 1st child)
    20% -- 0

    Yields a 2.1 TFR which is just a tiny bit above replacement for a modern industrial society with modern safety and medical care.


    As with immigration and pretty much everything else surrounding our demographic issues, the left position is--intentionally--innumerate. Designed to destroy.

    ~~

    A rare piece of actually useful AnotherDad old-man advice:

    For you younger folks here, have more kids. Not having one or two more is my only significant regret in life.

    Children are a blessing. My kids have been and continue to be the great joy of my life. Their moving forward in adult life, getting themselves established, finding good mates and starting their own families is what i look forward to and try and help out with. This is the stuff of life that makes the old man thing--the slow decline to the inevitable end, not such a terrible fate.

    In the long run, you'll never regret having another child. You may well regret choosing not to.
  33. I really liked the movie, “Roma”. Last weekend, I was walking to a dog park, wherein I have to pass a,
    mostly stinking, stagnant, duck pond. As my dog and I approached the pond, we came upon a Latina nanny and her 2 Anglo charges. One of the charges was in a stroller, the other was walking and started towards the duck pond, the nanny was oblivious. I was sadly/hilariously treated to the sight of one of the Anglo kids falling into a hole. Half of him disappeared! After he fell in the hole, his nanny started to scream at him. I told everyone whom I encountered at the dog park about the incident. Some laughed, some not. Ladies, take care of your own children.

White motel maids and Eastern European home health were the more interesting characters caught up in the raids, in addition to the various Chinese and S Americans probably brought hear with no clear non prostitution purpose.

    Anyway the government sends you a nanny, heh, and for all of France’s glorious diversity she’s miraculously a polite young white woman.
     
    Heh...More like the nanny was born in The Congo or Djibouti, one of 8 siblings, and the entire family immigrated to France. Or claimed asylum in France. And her brothers are all rappers and graffiti artists who have received recognition and awards from the French Ministry of Culture.

    The maid said she was a government employee. In France. She's not starving.

    She's also pretty enough to find a quality man. The fact she chose a helping profession means she'll likely have a couple kids.

    Which of course is … the problem.

    One of the scams the left has run–mostly under the enviro lable–is to make two children the norm for a successful marriage. But if you have feminism, female careerism, late marriage–which of course creates more bioligical fertility failures–a fair amount of no marriage, divorce, then two-children in successful marriages is … drastic population decline!

    If you have any sort of “modern” behavior of late or skipped or failed marriage then norm for successful marriages of healthy people needs to be 3 kids, just to maintain population.

    For example
    10% — 4+ (call it 4.5 for the math)
    40% — 3
    15% — 2 (ran out of time of just … enough)
    15% — 1 (ran out of time or marriage fails with introduction of 1st child)
    20% — 0

    Yields a 2.1 TFR which is just a tiny bit above replacement for a modern industrial society with modern safety and medical care.

    As with immigration and pretty much everything else surrounding our demographic issues, the left position is–intentionally–innumerate. Designed to destroy.

    Children are a blessing. My kids have been and continue to be the great joy of my life. Their moving forward in adult life, getting themselves established, finding good mates and starting their own families is what i look forward to and try and help out with. This is the stuff of life that makes the old man thing–the slow decline to the inevitable end, not such a terrible fate.

    In the long run, you’ll never regret having another child. You may well regret choosing not to.

Is it permissible to actually write the letters H_i_t_l_e_r without being branded a white supremacist? Oh wait, I'm Syrian, too. so for intersectionality points, the answer is yes, but because it's Syrian intersectionality, that's a double negative, so the answer is no. Oh, double-plus wait! My grandfather was a Jehovah's Witness and grandmother a member of the Antioch Eastern Orthodox Church, you know THE church, so we're back to yes again. Shades of Princess Bride. I know, I know. Where was I? Oh yes, I was rambling.

    I wanted to do Aids, the Musical. The hit number was going to go like this:

    Had as much luck with that as I did with my first attempt at country music. It a ballad about a truck driver trying to make it through traffic in Atlanta.

    Yes, as a young working guy who wants to have fun in my twenties, I really, really want to have utility- and beer-money taken out of MY paycheck every week to support someone else's nanny, so that Mom can not be a Mom.

    Before you all chime in "oh, it's good for society!", I do understand your point. However, that's what charity and voluntary association is about. There's no reason a group of working families couldn't work that all out for themselves, except for one - Big Gov. Big Gov. takes the incentive away ("hey, there already IS a program ..."), takes the money away (with the usual economic theft, OK, "friction") and DOES NOT LIKE COMPETITION.

    The Best Picture Oscar nominees this year are supposed to be an incredible reflection of diversity, of the suppressed voices of the marginalized and downtrodden of the world. The funny thing is, though, when you look closely at them, they all seem to demonstrate something very different.


    Black Panther
    is a work of pure fantasy based on a concept originally concocted by white/Jewish writers. Furthermore, it largely favorably depicts a black monarchical ethno-state that fiercely guards its borders with the outside world.

    BlackKKKlansman fabricates the bomb plot at the climax of its story. As Steve has pointed out, this is pretty much the most boring true story ever filmed: A black cop calls up the KKK, pretends to be white over the phone, a white cop using the same name infiltrates the Klan, and...nothing happens. I wonder if normies ever reflect on what a funny coincidence it is that, while of course David Duke's KKK is the most monstrous group of barbarians in all of human history, it just so happens that they weren't actually committing any crimes in the true story the film is based on, and consequently a crime had to be manufactured out of thin air to blame them for?


    Bohemian Rhapsody is about a Marginalized Minority Person Of Color, right? Well, not exactly. Mercury was a Parsi, one of the most successful ethno-religious groups per capita in India. It's funny how the non-white people who we're told need to be celebrated for the sake of Diversity are so often from the most successful groups within their homelands (e.g. the Igbo in Nigeria.)


    The Favourite's suggestion of lesbianism at the court of Queen Anne seems to be at least very speculative and probably totally fictitious. Furthermore, it's funny how much, in this supposed era of democracy and equality, people continue to enjoy hearing stories about the machinations of powerful hereditary nobles and royals, like Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones.

    Green Book's depiction of the friendship between a black musician and his white chauffeur was fictitious, according to a family member of the musician. I haven't researched this exhaustively, but it seems that there is considerable controversy about the truthfulness of the film's story.

    Roma is of course directed by Conquistador descendant Alfonso Cuarón, who, though now renowned for making a film about how great Mexico is to live in, just so happens to have been living in London for the past couple decades, personally.


    Why is it so hard for Hollywood to tell a mostly accurate pro-The Narrative story about genuinely marginalized people of color/women/gays? (Of course, we know why here, but this might be a useful starting point when trying to redpill less educated acquaintances.)

    The tween girl in front of me on an airplane a few months ago was watching a Disney style movie about high school boys falling in love.

    Several years ago, I decided to learn Spanish so in my final years I would be able to hear and understand my caretakers at “the home” plotting to smother me with a pillow - I’ll be too weak to fight them but I’d rather know it’s coming. That may have been a waste of time - by the time I need assisted living care it may be poor whites changing my bedpans...

    Though it is about the easiest one for Americans, learning Spanish is still 10X as hard as learning to quick-draw and shoot a small CCP, say .380 caliber, so you can stop any devious senorita in her tracks. Leave it behind that very same pillow.

    If some white director made a movie about a black maid or some such NOW -- "we had this submissive and mostly quiet black maid who served us like a dog" -- , people would be offended by the idealized depiction of black as obedient figure.

    But no one seems bothered that a brown woman is depicted in this manner. An image of a duty-bound brown woman who devotes her life to serving privileged whites. Even progs seem okay with the stereotype, and I guess it's somewhat okay because the white family is globo-libby.

    Human Highway - This is a great tune ( I think it's Nicolette Larson singing backing vocals):

    That solo is pretty nice, which is why I had it on my itunes for a while. Had to delete it after hearing the lyrics repeatedly. ‘Southern man when will you pay them back?’ GTFOH you snaggle-toothed Canadian hippy ghoul. He did make quite a few rocking tunes though.

    I haven't seen this but ROMA seems to indicate HBD.

    If some white director made a movie about a black maid or some such NOW -- "we had this submissive and mostly quiet black maid who served us like a dog" -- , people would be offended by the idealized depiction of black as obedient figure.

    But no one seems bothered that a brown woman is depicted in this manner. An image of a duty-bound brown woman who devotes her life to serving privileged whites. Even progs seem okay with the stereotype, and I guess it's somewhat okay because the white family is globo-libby.

    How about the maids? Should they get a maid too? This could go on ad infinitum. It’s little brown maids the whole way down.

    A couple of years ago there was a trailer for a feature film that was almost a dramatization of this story -- except that the pimp network was solidly white Gentile and presided over by an iteration of the Southern sherriff from In the Heat of the Night. Also, the protagonist was a college-educated Asian who subverted the patriarchal network by sensitizing mid-level personnel to the systemic abuse they too suffered.

    Did either you or Achmed E. Newman ever travel through the South back in the day?
     
    That depends on what "the day" was. Mid-1970's, yes. Ronnie Van Zant's lyrics did confuse me on "in Birmingham they love the governer", as north Alabama is where the white folks are concentrated in that state, and Miss, too, for the most part. The capital is Montgomery, so ???

    As far as people badmouthing their "hick towns" and locales, that's a standard virtue signaling deal, though John Derbyshire hadn't been around to invent it yet. I don't put much stock in that. If you're not happy with it, move the hell up to Pennsylvania or something.

    Alabama by Neil Young is just stupid. He'd probably never been out of Canada and Los Angeles when he wrote it, along with Southern Man. But the guy can play electric and acoustic guitar in his own great way ... from Canada or Los Angeles... a Southern man don't need him around - true dat!

    Ronnie Van Zant’s lyrics did confuse me on “in Birmingham they love the governor”, as north Alabama is where the white folks are concentrated in that state, and Miss, too, for the most part.

    I’m not sure if Birmingham was already majority-black back in 1970, but it has been pretty much since. It has always been a blue-collar industrial city (like its namesake in Blighty) whose fortunes rose and fell in parallel with the Rust Belt’s.

    As far as people badmouthing their “hick towns” and locales, that’s a standard virtue signaling deal…

    Eastern media types eat this up; they get a special frisson hiring self-loathing Southerners and apostate Christians.

    Moore is a skilled propagandist.

    He wants to sell economic leftism to middle and working class whites. Showing happy white socialist utopias providing benefits to employed white people works much better than brown NEETS with burkas on welfare for life.

    If we had the demographics of 1995 I'd agree with Moore. Now it's too late. The purge of white guys from the economic left party makes this especially obvious today.

    That one (Albuquerque) must be one of the "newer" ones. I am not familiar. To me, if not Rust Never Sleeps or Comes a Time, the best could be Hawks and Doves.

    Here is one that could be played on VDare and be called a MAGA anthem, though I don't know how Neil intended it - great fiddle on here:

    Oh, this country sure looks good to me, but these fences are comin' apart at every nail.

    It's a dumb idea, but there is a company in the UK that has drop-in , reversible EV conversions for vintage Jaguars and Aston Martins. Someone is buying them.


    While the car was being converted to a biodiesel-electric hybrid, things didn't quite turn out for the best. In 2010, "a malfunction while the car was charging set off a three-alarm blaze on Quarry Road on Nov. 9, 2010, that caused about $1 million in damage. Most of the damage was done to a lifetime of rock 'n' roll memorabilia -- instruments, photos and film footage as well as the Lincoln -- Young had stored in the warehouse." (source)

    Young's company is now being sued by Unigard Insurance, claiming negligence. "The altering of a gas-powered 1959 vehicle and its components is an extreme departure from what a reasonably careful person would do," Unigard Insurance Co. claims in the suit filed in San Mateo County Superior Court. There has been no problems with Young's conduct after the fire, though. Unigard says that he's been very responsive and helpful.

    The only good news in this is that since the fire, Young has decided to rebuild the car and it has been improved from the original version. You can keep track of the LincVolt's progress on its official blog.

    The album's advance single, "Long May You Run", peaked at #71 on the UK singles chart.[6] The song was an elegy for Neil Young's first car (which he nicknamed "Mort"[7]), a 1948 Buick Roadmaster hearse that died in 1962 when its transmission blew in Blind River, Ontario.[6] Mort was a different vehicle from the 1953 Pontiac hearse, nicknamed Mort 2, that Richie Furay, traveling with Stills, saw Young driving in a Hollywood traffic jam in 1966 that led to the formation of Buffalo Springfield.[8] "Long May You Run" was performed by Young on the final broadcast of The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien on January 22, 2010, and during the closing ceremonies for the Vancouver Olympics on February 28, 2010.
     
    Worth noting that Buicks of that vintage with Dynaflow transmissions have a torque converter that because of its design and materials, is highly sought after for making banjos out of. Buick restorers are frustrated at the lack of availability of this part, since the Buick has a torque tube driveline a trans swap is tough unless you rip out the rear end and go to an open driveline.

    Traditional musician and craftsman Jenes Cottrell (September 14, 1901-December 7, 1980) was descended from the earliest settlers of Clay County. Known for their farming and trading, the Cottrells also worked with wood. During the arts and crafts revival beginning in the 1960s, Jenes Cottrell became one of the best-known practitioners of the old ways. He made toys, rolling pins, chairs, and canes, and he put in chair bottoms of woven wood splits. He had a fine foot-powered, spring-pole lathe which he used to demonstrate his skill at festivals throughout West Virginia and beyond. He drew people as flies swarm to sugar. Somewhere along the way Cottrell had begun to make banjo rims using aluminum torque converter rings from 1956 Buick transmissions. He quickly became known for making and playing banjos. Murray Smith, a Clay County banker, began treks with Cottrell all over the country to carry him to meet the public.

    Cottrell was born, lived, and died on Deadfall Run, the home of his ancestors. He lived there with a sister, Sylvia O’Brien, also a musician and an exemplar of the old ways. There was never any electricity, gas, or running water in Cottrell’s home. The house had never been painted. He never owned a car or a telephone. Jenes Cottrell was a quiet man with simple wants and a simple life who was proud of his heritage. He is buried on the farm.
     
    I question that '56 Buicks were really what he used: I've heard that late forties through very early 50s ones had the right material. I have talked to several vintage dealers who assure me that torque converter banjos have no real value, but they do in fact appear to bring a good sum on eBay.
