Please see Pete Seeger Lisa Kalvelage

For everyone who wonders how we came to be quietly accepting the slide into fascism.

Sorry, I’m having trouble linking a video.

Separated at birth? Musk and Lewis

https://www.theguardian.com/media/article/2024/jun/19/will-lewis-washington-post-publisher-boris-johnson-partygate#img-1

Does anyone else see it? It looks like the same arrogant pissy pursed-mouth expression that’s fixed on Eloon Musk’s repellant face.

I’m holding on to my WaPo subscription for now, but am holding my nose while I do.

After the Flood on Britbox, anybody?

I am in danger of bingeing! Really good drama from the creators of Happy Valley.

"Bodkin" anyone?

I haven’t finished it yet, but I think it’s one of the best series I’ve seen. Darkly funny.

Northern lights!

The last time I saw such a show, there was a comet, Hale-Bopp, surrounded by the aurora. Tonight was another glorious display. Lots of red and shifting sheets and columns of green, at one point filling fully half the sky to the apex over my head. I wish I had had better dark, but even just a couple of miles west of town, it was amazing. Yow.

I’m in central Maine, by the way. I hope folks farther west get a good view in turn!

Geminids are putting on a show

Even in town here (it IS a rather small town, but we do have streetlights) I just saw several nice falling stars within about 10 minutes.

About the hilarious moms protest

The slimy misogynist Chris Rufo asked on twitter “on a scale of 1 to 10” how effective is this protest. It has been suggested, by someone on the battlefield, that a bomb of replies of “eleven!” Would be fun.

If you do twitter, would you consider that?

Thanks!
