TDK60, two out of five that voted were for Le Pen. A worrying trend.

@Brian: from what was reported it was low voter turnout & many voted "against LePen" rather than for Macron. Either way , I'm glad it went the way it did.

The sad reality is that here in the U.S. an even higher percentage will vote for somebody openly fascist.

I blame the British, that brexit vote seemed to open flood gates for latent racism. The idea of taking back control is purile.
Woods, did not want to mention that in friendly company.

  9:33am P-90:

The Left hasn’t evaporated in France, they’re just very disappointed in the pace of progress on things that matter to them. Their frustration that Macron hasn’t “done more” doesn’t mean they’re going to vote for a reactionary nutjob. Also remember, a lot of the criticism of Macron is about how “aristocratic” he iOS, how “elitist” his style is. Style’ important in France.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Always noting WWII followed the Depression. Conditions get rough, people get 'protectionist'. You suppose the Oligarchs are unaware of this?
In the USA - lower voter turnout *very reliably* favors the Right. Drumpf lost our popular by several millions - but of course not the Electoral College. Which has happened to the Democratic Party a few times now. The U.S. Senate is now @ about 50/50 - but please remember that because every state gets two regardless of size - which is not Democracy either ...the Republican Senators represent something like 43 (?) Million fewer citizens... The Right can just wave the flag of one mad Ideology & get its followers to the Polls, but bing Liberal by definition means tolerating wider views - & its a different challenge to get us in single file - tho we are a very notable Majority !... Supposed 'Left' politicians like their Careers quite as much as Right ones do... They appeal to a 'Center' that does not exist to stand on (which they themselves help to hollow out in fact) - & the discontent instead go (far) Right. I think Terence McKenna was correct: we empower Politicians as Leaders, but they're the last to advance. & the Least among - in vision, morals...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34am WoodsOfNH (now Maine):

@YETI BOB. No, he got over 46%, which I find frightening.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:35am YETI BOB:

Electoral College and Senate are inherently anti-democratic and must be eliminated (along with the Supreme Court). But I think in this country it's pretty hard to get 58% of people to agree on *anything*.

Woods, I agree, it's frightening as hell, just trying to keep the numbers straight.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:35am Glorious Estephonic:

this is so beautiful, thank you Joe

  9:38am P-90:

Macron’s “approval” in the polls has been 40% (or less), below Biden’s polling here. But when it was time to actually choose, he got close to 59% of the vote. It’s the same here: only 40% will tell a pollster they “approve” of Biden’s performance, but when it’s time to choose between Biden and some republican-socialist piece of shit?

Bread: I lost my older brother Dave in a car wreck in 1995. A good friend sang Bread's "Everything I Own" at his funeral. Just thinking of the song brings me to tears.

"Is there someone you know
You're loving them so
But taking them all for granted
You may lose them one day
Someone takes them away
And they don't hear the words you long to say

I would give anything I own
Give up my life, my heart, my home
I would give everything I own
Just to have you back again
Just to touch you once again"

I noticed in all the tizzy revolving around Joni Mitchell and her late-career adulation(well-deserved, of course!), that little if any mention has been made of the contributions made to her large catalog by the late Henry Lewy, her wonderful engineer and sometime-producer. She would be the first to acknowledge his invaluable contributions, if anyone bothered to ask!

@Chuck: if you weren't selling volume, all the labels of the time were guilty of neglecting their artists. Some were better than others, but all were guilty to some extent. Probably the best two for good promotion were Atlantic & A&M because they had people at the top who really cared about the music

@Gerry: i am lucky enough to call bass legend Harvey Brooks a friend (haven't seen him in years, now living in Israel). He worked with Botnick on The Doors Soft Parade record and corroborated this info from the pediaofwiki in conversations we had in a local studio & at a local watering hole :

"In November 1968, the band entered the newly established studio Elektra Sound West on La Cienega Boulevard to continue work on The Soft Parade, a process that was not completed until early 1969. Without any album-ready material to work with, record producer Paul A. Rothchild took control of the recording sessions and insisted on numerous retakes of songs, much to the group's indignation. "It was like pulling teeth to get Jim into it", sound engineer Bruce Botnick recalled. "It was bizarre ... the hardest I ever worked as a producer." Rothchild, who by this time was addicted to cocaine and incredibly strict in his leadership, caused severe strife in the studio, especially with his advisor Jac Holzman, who argued that the drive for perfection was "grinding them [The Doors] into the ground".The album was by far the most expensive by the group, costing US$80,000 to create in contrast to the US$10,000 required for their debut.
