Ferry auditioned to front KC? And didn't get the gig. More evidence that vocals are Fripp's weak area.

Always thought Ferry & Robert Calvert shared a common .. something .. in vocal technique. BF was the stronger of the two, but there are moments when they could be "almost" interchangeable.

what is dignity?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/12/17 3:56pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Interesting to consider. Sometimes I think Obama was too much about 'dignity'. Too much of that & it's passive Normalization & Stockholm Syndrome. Too much passivity & presumption has got us here generally, I think. & by here I mean - colossal wealth inequality, irreversible climate change, environmental mass extinctions, class war leading to global embrace of Fascism, failing justice systems, utterly degraded infrastructure, economic & societal collapse, & other trivia...

Yeah - I don't think it's all one or the other - but what reason to not expect the worst administration in history (@ least our own)? There's already damage to civil society - & his cabinet is full of Oligarchs & people determined to destroy the very departments they're supposed to run. He's surrounding himself w/ Generals & dispensing w/ Diplomacy...Were that it was only 'ridiculous'. The country & the world are @ critical junctures - & the reins are being handed to a hate-filled racist nationalist business fraud, bankruptcy pest, & game show host famous for terminating people. But - this is not Unreality TV - this is the real stage...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/12/17 4:11pm coelacanth∅:

okay, MacGuffin -good points; but it's not about one's "side" having a setback. that shit's for the republicans and, to a smaller degree, the democrats. it's about the world having setbacks. (see RR @3:56) -people who are passionately upset are so because they are concerned - or scared- for all the people of this planet.
...but yes, at least this era shall be entertaining.

OED, first entry on "dignity": "The quality of being worthy or honourable; worthiness, worth, nobleness, excellence."

Best quotation that supports RRN63's remark, justifying scare quotes around "dignity": 1836 H. Taylor Statesman xv. 107 It is of the essence of real dignity to be self-sustained, and no man's dignity can be asserted without being impaired.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/12/17 4:21pm Cliff in Prague:

Yes, they're switching to DAB, you can still receive stations for free, it's just that it's digitally encoded instead of analog. Kind of like HDTV vs. NTSC/PAL.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/12/17 4:22pm dale:

instead of just 5 stations they will get 22 so it isn't a bad thing.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/12/17 4:24pm Cliff in Prague:

Digital encoding = no interference or static, however a weak station will just drop out instead of fading out.

digital radio is shit, relatively speaking. that's sad. ...although it can't sound any worse than sirius.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/12/17 4:25pm Ike:

@RRN63, yeah but most 40+ folks have far more radios than TVs. Cars have radios built in, but not TVs built in. I have something like 5 or 6 radios without even trying. They're just lying around. Also upgrading to HDTV was a clear huge improvement in pic quality but digital radio will NOT be any better-sounding, I'm sure. Already-existing "HD radio" is useless garbage and doesn't sound any better than analog.

Did you ever think that Obama had to keep an aura of dignity because he was our first black President? You see it on Fox News and the idio-right sites. He chastises someone gently, it's lashing out. He's doing normal lame-duck pardons and other business he knows he can get through, Fox News calls it "a year-long temper tantrum".

And don't even get me started on how Hillary was treated. Yes, she was an Establishment candidate, but I heard from the left and right that her only qualifications were that she was a woman

@C'ec: Oh absolutely true - true. Obama could not be 'the angry black man' - & wasn't. I think Democrats went NeoLiberal as a response to the NeoConservatives - that is, dragged the DemParty to the Right/'Center' - & found there was no Left anymore - & no 'Center' to stand on.

...yeah yeah - I know. Bernie for example is both an Independent & a Senator: trying his best from Inside a System a true Left would say should not exist. But he decided not to run Independent & divide the vote. This election result is a symptom of Default System Failure - & the radical Left says even the end-stage disintegration of it...Unfortunately, Libertarianism, got highjacked into the Tea Party & getting even more radical Republicans in the back door under the guise of 'Deregulation' & 'personal freedumbs' & being 'pro-business'...so I'm feeling excessively Socialist these days...

look up the definition of 'failed state'. we're right on schedule. we are not exceptional. not at all. we can easily fit the profile.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/12/17 4:51pm Cecile:

yeah, I know, Linda Lee.

I remember voting for a mayoral candidate, even though he was personally conservative, because he said that his agenda would be to get the roads fixed, snow plowed in the winter, better police protection in the inner city neighborhoods,spruce up the community gardens and give more money to the schools. He didn't get out of the primaries, but the candidate who won, borrowed heavily from his platform.

Our stuff is hanging in there, but we have a good tax base and unusually involved citizenry. It's fragile. And the police protection is not anything to write home about.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/12/17 4:58pm Cecile:

he's out of office. People used to call him "the music man". He often talked a big game. He wasn't a terrible mayor. Just more into being liked than effective. During the bus strike of '04, he was one of the last major officials in the area who wasn't a wingnut to throw his support to us strikers. US reps, the mayor of St. Paul, every other official made a statement of support. He squeaked his displeasure in around Week 4 of a 6 week strike.
