Analysis of Hubris, the movie

Before YouTube, MTV, hell before almost everything for a great many people, many of us late night folk would wait until the airways cleared from the powerful AM stations and tuned into the new, fledgling, local FM radio stations, CHOM in Montreal and I think something sounding similar in Vancouver and Dave Pritchard on Chum FM in Toronto. It was the only time and the only place that we could hear our music. The audio was limited to small stereo receivers and the visuals were self prescribed.

But then for a brief moment in time, Reiner Schwarz talked a TV station into giving him a half hour devoted to night music and Reiner mixed it up good. Classical, jazz and our music played while the camera zoomed in and panned out on sections of amazing paintings and cool photographs, with Reiner rambling on, between sets. The show didn't last long and maybe it was just experiment, but it had a lasting effect on me. Of course back in those days most things did.

Anyway, this is my tribute to Reiner Schwarz, night music and my first political movie. Play it late at night.

I used to listen to rainer on CHOM in the wee hours of the morning - some of the best programming I ever heard - very adventurous and perfect for that time of the day/night. Unfoirtunately your video is blocked for copyright reasons. Damn.

Things that piss me off, today

Government Negotiations
Do you think that it might have been wiser to wait for the federal court decision on the legality of the approval process used by the National Energy Board when giving the go ahead for expansion of the Kinder Morgan bitumen pipeline, before spending 9 billion plus dollars on what was originally purchased for 110 million dollars by Kinder Morgan, ten years ago?
Considering that we all knew that Harper’s National Energy Board was nothing more than a corrupt industry rubber stamp. Isn’t that one of the many reasons we got rid of Harper, including of course hiding in a closet when we were attacked (in case anyone forgot)?
Somehow I am now supposed to be confident that our government can successfully renegotiate NAFTA with the Orange Asshole.
Jesus I’m sounding like a conservative.
Dating Apps
My son has become a player, in his dad’s mind. He has three different dating apps that apparently are for daters wanting three different types of dates. He showed me one app in…

PizzaGate explained

Never heard Bernie speak until after the US election, saw the debates and thought Hillary cleaned Trump's clock. Knew Trump was a prick and couldn't understand how any sane person would vote for him, yet for some reason, I called myself a Bernie guy, didn't trust Hillary and had no idea why.

But, at least I didn't take my gun to a pizza joint to break up a pedophilia ring in the basement and end up getting four years in prison, like Ed Welch from North Carolina.

RollingStone in partnership with the Investigative Fund and the Centre for Investigative Reporting along with five other journalists tracked down the origins and methodologies used to propagate the most successful fake news story of the past election,
