We have had some stellar days of late with the air so crystalline and fresh that it has been an added bonus to be outside.  The temps have been manageable as well.  I began this post more than a week ago, but put it on the back burner until now.  I am no doubt busier now than I ever have been (particularly at work), but I’m still finding the time to be involved with my own art.  And I must confess…if I have to prioritize whether to stay home and work on a blog article or go to the river and participate in life at that level…well, I think you know what my answer will be!  I have enjoyed blogging, but must admit to myself that what I do will never be most people’s’ idea of a good read, especially since there are now literally millions of blogs out there!…

What are your favorite Bad books?

My top choice is Catch-22 by Joseph Heller. The film clip pretty much gives you the lay of the land.

List of commonly banned books in the US via wikipedia.

  Sept. 25 to Oct. 1 is banned books week.

 Exercise your right to read freely.

Sherman Alexie’s The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian is also one of my favorite bad books. And Kurt Vonneguts’s Slaughterhouse-Five is another dark keeper from the usual banned books suspects. I have to admit that unlike the other two books which make you laugh and cry, Slaughterhouse-Five seriously lacks in the laughs column. But it’s a powerful book about the horror of war.

So what books would you stand up for in the age of manipulative mind control?

 

Commentary on Schaefer Riley’s Column on the DAPL Case

Oh yeah, Matthew L. M. Fletcher’s rebuke of the Washington Post’s Naomi Schaefer Riley is well worth taking the time to read.
#NoDAPL

Turtle Talk

Naomi Schaefer Riley offered commentary on the Dakota Access Pipeline matter in her regular column in the New York Post, “How the Standing Rock Sioux should have been able to stop that pipeline.” This column continues NSR’s mockery of Indian peoples’ economic and cultural interests expressed in The New Trail of Tears.

The lede says it all:

Quick quiz: What’s the best way to stop a company from building an oil pipeline on a piece of land you find valuable? Answer: Buy the land.

Assuming that the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and other affected tribes had the resources to do so, it probably wouldn’t have mattered — energy companies usually just confiscate the land under their delegated power of eminent domain, as Dakota Access has. Sure, property ownership helps, but in the end, the law is tipped in the pipeline companies’ favor.

NSR cites to the Mormons…

NO Means NO Megaloads Sit-In

Take a load off on Sept. 28.

Wild Idaho Rising Tide

Are megaloads preparing to again invade U.S. Highway 12, through the remote Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forest and the Lochsa-Middle Fork Clearwater Wild and Scenic River corridor? [1] On September 7, 2016, the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) distributed a media release, read by a Wild Idaho Rising Tide (WIRT) activist to participants in the #NoDAPL Fundraiser and Rally in Lapwai, Idaho [2, 3].  ITD is proposing new, illegal rules for oversize shipments – megaloads – on Highway 12, seemingly to circumvent ongoing mediation among several parties to a federal lawsuit.  In September 2013, in response to this case argued by Advocates for the West for Idaho Rivers United (IRU) and the Nez Perce Tribe against the U.S. Forest Service, a federal district court in Boise issued an injunction blocking any transport wider than 16 feet, longer than 150 feet, and traveling slower than 12 hours on the 100 miles of Highway…

BP polluters, not good art sponsors

Ah Big Oil leaks everywhere. The infamous BP gets its oily fingers into everything it can in order to influence and intimidate via the proceeds of its gigantic profit margin.

Dear Kitty. Some blog

This video from London, England says about itself:

UK: Theatrical flash mob protest BP sponsorship at British Museum

25 September 2016

A theatrical flash mob descended on the British Museum in London on Sunday to protest against BP sponsorship at the museum, in particular the oil company’s sponsorship of the ‘Sunken Cities’ exhibition.

By Sofia Lotto Persio in Britain:

Activists stage splash mob at British Museum

Monday 26th September 2016

Protest group calls for museum to remove BP logos from Sunken Cities exhibition

A WAVE of activists joined the theatrical protest group “BP or not BP” at the British Museum yesterday to protest against the renewal of a sponsorship deal with BP.

BP’s logo is visibly displayed on all advertisement for the museum’s latest exhibition, Sunken Cities.

To fit the marine theme, protesters performed a “splashmob,” dressing up as fish, mermaids and other underwater creatures…

Cake ~ Taste a Slice

 

Some times when you’re catching up on your list of films to view you discover the most unexpected things.

In the case of Cake the surprise is that Jennifer Aniston can truly act. As with Adam Sandler I find Aniston far more interesting in a drama than in simple minded comedy. Actually she’s more than interesting, she’s downright captivatingly great as a woman suffering physically, emotionally and mentally. If you’re in the mood to get a respite from the reality show otherwise known as election year politics and drama laced with biting comic overtones is a penchant then grab Cake wherever your film meals are served.

Oh, and Adriana Barraza is equally wonderful as Silvana, the only person capable of dealing with Aniston’s antics for the long haul.

Supporting the Fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline by Matt Remle

LRInspire

Recent events in Cannon Ball North Dakota have brought a spot light on the on-going fight to stop the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. The Army Corps of Engineers recently approved the final permits for Energy Transfer to build its multi-state pipeline from the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota to Illinois.
