[216] Santini and my Antiversary

Dios mio!  Vi la atroz postal navide/na de Santini (tacky just doesn't cut it) y decidi buscar informacion irrelevante para escribir un post.  Simplemente expongo que han salido varias cosas que debo sacar ya.  Primero, la postal de Santini, ajustada para sus sensibilidades con gatitos.  Porque todo con gatitos se ve mejor:

Me hizo pensar.  Tanto passive agressiveness en una imagen.  Creo que los comentarios de El /Name y de Santini Family Fights son sumamente interesantes:

En esa misma onda hice referencia a una imagen de Simba y Scar en Lion King.  Gran imagen para mi Antiversario el dia 11...Siguiendo esa linea passive aggresive (http://www.zefrank.com/punc/) esta linda postal:

Dios mio!  Hay asperezas pero no es para tanto.

En otros temas, he estado revisando CDs viejos y los toco por momentos.  He tropezado recientemente con un grupo folk llamado Fiery Furnaces.

En particular por un video dedicado al gran Dubya, we got back the plague....  Video debajo:



Letra:
That easygoing man of blood
Mucking about in the McClennan County mud
If you're hoping he won't, well course then he must
While driving his truck through the McClennan County dust

Well I read in my book on Sunday afternoon
So it's easy to think the end's coming soon
But though sometimes the signs from heaven are vague
Early November we got back the plague

While beautiful Laura's sweeping the porch
He's teleconferencing up his operation torch
And I don't care if he bombs Babylon to hell
Except for he's building Babylon here as well

Well I read in my book on Sunday afternoon
So it's easy to think the end's coming soon
But though sometimes the signs from heaven are vague
Early November we got back the plague

Waking up in Cedar Rapids looking for allies
Praising his leaches and looking for likewise
Down in St. Charles local talent he hawks
Smirking and sowing the wind as he talks

Well I read in my book on Sunday afternoon
So it's easy to think the end's coming soon
But though sometimes the signs from heaven are vague
Early November we got back the plague

In Northern Virginia on their excursions
Or LUVN with all their diversions
Horns for hounds and spurs for horses
Release the committed 72-hour task forces

Well I read in my book on Sunday afternoon
So it's easy to think the end's coming soon
But though sometimes the signs from heaven are vague
Early November we got back the plague

Bentonville and Dallas with gasoline douse
Then back to Crawford going over the firehouse
Behind the curtains not too much of a trick
Sicking ourselves to make ourselves sick

Well I read in my book on Sunday afternoon
So it's easy to think the end's coming soon
But though sometimes the signs from heaven are vague
Early November we got back the plague

That easygoing man of blood
Mucking about in the McClennan County mud
If you're hoping he won't, well course then he must
While driving his truck through the McClennan County dust
OK, mas passive agressiveness pero esta vez contra George W. Bush.  A lo que voy.  Investigo McClennan y llego a Waco y a Crush Texas.

Tropiezo entonces con William Crush...

William Crush

William George Crush was the general passenger agent of the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad, known familiarly as the "Katy" railroad.[5] Observing that curiosity-seekers inevitably showed up at train wrecks, Crush persuaded the railway's management to let him pursue a publicity stunt involving the staging of a collision. For the public spectacle, to which the Katy offered to transport spectators for $2 each, on September 15, 1896 near Waco, Texas, Crush placed two locomotives, facing in the opposite directions, on a 4-mile (6.4-km) track. The event had to be delayed by several hours because the crowd of some 40,000 people resisted being pressed back by the police, to what was supposedly a safe distance. The crews, after tying the throttles open, jumped off and let the engines, pulling wagons loaded with railroad ties, steam at full power into a head-on collision, the combined speed of which was 90 mi/h (145 km/h). An unanticipated effect, making the intentional accident more dangerous, was that two boilers exploded. Several individuals were wounded by flying debris, and three were killed. A flying bolt took out one eye of the event's photographer, Jarvis "Joe" Deane.[6]
The total kinetic energy released at the point of impact in the collision was equal to 200 megajoules (MJ), or about 50 kg of TNT.
The event, which became known as the Crash at Crush, was commemorated in "The Great Crush Collision March" by Scott Joplin, who dedicated the composition to the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railway.[7]



Que puedo decir?  La estupidez trasciende la historia.  Things going boom.  Trenes.  Heridos.  Show.  Habia que novelerear:
http://www.lsjunction.com/facts/crush.htm
http://www.unmuseum.org/crash.htm
Crash at Crush -- 1896 By 5 p.m. the afternoon of September 15, 1896, nearly 50,000 people had gathered anxiously on a wide stretch of Texas prairie near Waco. Moments later, they watched two 35-ton locomotives, each pulling seven boxcars, collide head-on at a combined speed of 120 miles per hour. The publicity spectacular was staged at Crush, Texas, a short-lived town established just for the occasion. Organizer for the event (and namesake for the town) was William George Crush, a passenger agent for the Missouri, Kansas & Texas Railway Company, commonly known as "the Katy."

Que conste, ninguna directa con la alegoria del choque de trenes...

The collision, intended as publicity for the railroad, was planned and promoted for months in advance. The locomotives, Old No. 999 and Old No. 1001, were displayed prominently during tours throughout the state.
Rather that the usual entrance fees charged for major public attractions, Katy officials announced that they would charge no admission for the well publicized event. Further, they promised that food concession contractors would not be allowed to sell lunches at extortionate prices, and that containers of "fresh Waco water" would be abundant and free. The only fee would be the train fare required to transport the many thousands of spectators to the crash site. Even these fares were offered at bargain rates--none over $5 from anywhere in Texas. As a result, the excursion trains were so packed that some people were obliged to ride on top of the cars for lack of room inside.



Finalice mi paseo musical redescubriendo un grupo llamado Goldfish.  Les dejo un videito de lo mas gracioso:



Otro mas



y algo del grupo:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goldfish_(band)
Goldfish are an electronica and dance group hailing from Cape Town, South Africa, consisting of Dominic Peters and David Poole. They create dance music containing elements of jazz and African music, combining live instruments like double bass, saxophones, keyboards, flute, and vocals with samplers, effects and synths. They have opened for many international electronica acts, including Basement Jaxx, Faithless, Fatboy Slim, Mr Scruff, Audio Bullys, Paul van Dyk, Pete Tong and Stereo MCs.[3]
Their work features many different vocalists, including Sakhile Moleshe, Max Vidima, Monique Hellenberg, Hlulani Hlangwane and the duo's own David Poole.
An advertisement for the Kia Soul automobile featured their track "Fort Knox."

y lo dejo asi, crudito...
