CNN ‘What Happened?’ / Howard Kurtz “Reliable Sources” = merely ‘Spin Cycle’ ???

Posted in Uncategorized by ynot on the June 28th, 2008

i was starting this laster sunday… but then George Carlin died & i had also wanted to get a music related post up & that took a few daze longer than i had expected…

a coupla weex ago i snagged this @ greenburp library fer 25 cents…
HoWie KuRTz - ‘SPiN CyCLe’ iNSide The CLiNToN PRoPaGaNda MaChiNe ( 1998 )

Fum Th’ BaCk: “Bill Clinton is the most invesigated president since Richard Nixon – facing inquiries into Whitewater, campaign fundraising abuses, and sexual misconduct -and yet he began 1998 with approval ratings as high as those of Ronald Reagan. But the new year has brought a barrage of new allegations, and the president and his advisers face once again the challange of spinning the news to their advantage, a challange they have mastered many times before.

In SPiN CyCLe, award-winning Washington Post reporter Howard Kurtz reveals the inside workings of Clinton’s well-oiled propaganda machine – arguably the most successful team of White House spin doctors in history. He pulls back the curtain on events and tactics that the administration would prefer to keep hidden, including:

*A tense, almost paranoid White House atmosphere in which the spinmeisters do not question the President about the various scandals because they don’t want to learn information they might have to reveal to prosecutors or the press.

*Bill Clinton’s success in reaping favorable publicity by secretly courting selected reporters and columnists in off-the-record White House Meetings.

SPiN CyCLe is an all-too-human drama in which political operatives wrestle with their consciences as they struggle to protect the boss. As the scandal drums beat louder and louder, Kurtz tells what it takes for the president and his people to survive, and what happens to the truth along the way.”

WOW! can yu fLeekin’ believe this?

hey Howie, where’s the ‘fair & balanced’ account of the Bush administration?

i watched all of this paster sundaze sho & there was not one second of air-time dedicated to Scott McClellan testifying before John Conyers House Judiciary Cmte. watch it here!

Mr. Kurtz, this is truly a shocking dereliction of any journalistic standard, as McClellan’s book was No. 1 on both Amazon.com
as well as No. 2 @ The New York Times, instead we got 10 minutes of ‘First Wife Wars – Michelle Obama vs. Cindy McCain’. I can’t help thinking that there is a twist on the scene in King Lear where the fool taunts Lear about being whipp’d for lying, …to have his ear abus’d, etc… except that it is the chattering class on the right pours lye after lye into th’ ears of th’ supposedly ‘neutral’ press, but then again Mr. Kurtz et al really should kno BuLLShiT by this point. So, No, sorry Howie NO PaSS on this ‘un… there REaLLy Needs t’ be ANSWeR fer this completely obvious O’eRSiGhT…

George Carlin (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008) ….it was 1972… ‘Class Clown’ 8-trk playing constantly in the car stereo…

Posted in Uncategorized by ynot on the June 23rd, 2008

Yesterday Sunday June 22, 2008, George Carlin died…

July 21 1972 Milwaukee Summerfest Arrest Mugshot

i don’t know what i can add that hasn’t already been said, i was 8 yrs old when i first heard ‘Class Clown’, we played th’ 8-trk constantly, where it had replaced th’ worn out ‘bootleg’ Cheech & Chong tapes purchased @ ENGLiShToWN FLea MaRkeT… what made Carlin SO DaMN fLeekin GREaT as a MaSTeR WoRdSMiTh was his uncanny astute ability t’ find th’ holes in language, meaning & symbolism… and to exploit th’ contradictions lying therein… for instance… he stated he believed in ‘frisbeetarianism’ ( which he created on a lark for a newspaper contest ), it was as he defined it, as the belief that when a person dies “his soul gets flung onto a roof, and just stays there”, and cannot be retrieved. When you sit there & think about that statement, there is another pearl that can be pried as a bonus prize, which i believe Carlin, as th’ LaPSed CaThoLic that he was, fully intended; and that is that christianity requires evangelical ‘saving’ of th’ soul… an eternally vigiliant pursuit by ‘believers’ of those they suspect as ‘needy of saviour’… Carlin’s terse comedic moebius strip wrenches this blind willy-nilly ‘reaping’ into harsh reality; the soul of th’ dead lies in eternal ‘purgatory’ like a frisbee on th’ roof because it requires too much energy for th’ evangeliser to go & retrieve it… pointing out that most ‘evangelisers’ are human all too human & like all of us too self-absorbed in constant ‘cost/benefit analysis’ & would rather walk away from a difficult task than to expend energy on someone else’s soul when deep down inside they as well as each & everyone of us all doubt the depth or validity of ‘virtuousness’ of our own potentially soulless existence … SiMPLy AWeSoMe!

Carlin was admitted to St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica, California after complaining of chest pain. He died later that day at 5:55 p.m. PDT of heart failure at the age of 71.

BiLLy GuY - “WoMeN” ( The DeSTRuCTiON oF MaN! ) 1963 CoaSTeRs!

fum Claus Röhnisch ‘These Hoodlum Friends of Mine’ website

Billy Guy & Will Jones
Billy Guy made his first attempt as a solo artist back in 1962, when he recorded 16 tracks för ABC-Paramount and Lloyd
Price´s Double L label in New York – with no great success, although the recordings were pretty interesting (and later turned up as by “The Coasters”). Still recording and touring with the Coasters up to 1973, he often was substituted by Vernon Harrell on stage and later by Jimmy Norman. Guy continued recording several records in his own name for other labels after 1973 but also waxed couple of sessions as by “The Coasters” during the 1970s – especially a session for King/Gusto in Nashville in 1977 with Will “Dub” Jones. Jones himself had already recorded as “The Coasters” (the album “The World Famous Coasters”) around 1976 together with Leon Hughes. Jones settled in Los Angeles around 1979. He acted during the ´80s with an L.A. Coasters group, often including Billy Guy and sometimes Grady Chapman. They worked as “The World Famous Coasters“. Will was semi-retired during his later years, mostly acting as a gospel singer. Billy Guy embarked a Las Vegas “The Coasters”, often billed as “Billy Guy´s Coasters“, managed by Larry Marshak of RCI Management in New York during the latter part of 1998. Marshak had negotiated a business deal with Guy after the termination of a similar contract with the Billly Richards group (see more on “
Coastin´ with The Coasters“). Marshak is the organizer behind several of the new, phony name-sakes in the U.S. – young groups billing themselves and touring as “The Platters”, “The Drifters” or/and “The Coasters”.

my initial search… only a coule of daze ago… had turnip v. little…
but there is a wealth of related infos…
fum Wikipedia italian lang only… puter generated translation… un edited & complete /w/ mistakes…
http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_Strange
No. Strange, the seminal group neopsichedelica international, was born in 1980 in Turin under the name No Strange, on the initiative of Salvatore D’Urso (better known as Ursus) and Alberto Ezzu.
In 1984 he began collaboration with the famous record producer and Julius Tedeschi (Toast Records).
In addition to D’Urso and Ezzu, alternate over time many other musicians, including Franco “Franz” Presutti and Antonio “Tony” D’Urso.
The band has always focused on activities to record live.
The live appearances were then few choices carefully, preferably in special occasions, such as “Bom Shankar Event” held in La Loggia (TO) March 20, 1988, registration of which was published in the compilation Oracle.
Ends its work in 1992.
