Reader Tips

 
Good evening ladies and gentlemen, welcome to SDA Late Nite Radio. Tonight, for your delectation and pursuant to our Friday night international espionage show, here are Leo G. Carroll as Mr. Alexander Waverly, Robert Vaughn as Napoleon Solo, and David McCallum as Illya Kuryakin, with guest stars William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, and Werner Klemperer, performing The Project Strigas Affaire, II, III, IV, V, & VI episode of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., from which you surely no doubt recall that United Network Command for Law and Enforcement are battling their archenemy: Technological Hierarchy for the Removal of Undesirables and the Subjugation of Humanity; in 1965.

Your Reader Tips are, as always, welcome in the comments.

Very kewl Vit - I had no idea that Nimoy and Shatner paired up together before, . . . . um . . what was that TV show again?

It's funny watching "Nightmare at 20000 Feet" - I showed it to my girls - they thought it was funny - not scary at all. How times have changed

And Werner Klemperer too

As mentioned many months ago, Mahler's Second Symphony has many special moments, and is one of my favourite pieces of music. Otto Klemperer (pater) met Mahler whilst conducting the offstage group, and they were close for years afterwards.

For the Canadian connection, OK conducted the Montreal Symphony Orchestra from time to time as guest conductor. After falling in Montreal, he subsequently had to conduct from a chair

Despite all of his accomplishments, I'm sure he'll be remembered by history for his son's words . . . . "Ho-gan!!"

No it wasn't. That's why I said it was.

Gibbs on NCIS was right - Ducky did look like Illya Kuryakin when he was younger.

Posted by: Kathryn at May 8, 2009 10:17 PM

Well, Sysk, should one study the show, one would find that Waverly (British), Solo (American), and Kuryakin (Russian) were all acting together in concert to oppose generic third-party bad guys. Funny how that works. Still, the whole set-up, including the UN/CLE pronounciation, does provide fertile ground for thought, in retrospect some 44 years ago now, don't you think? And while I'm certainly not in favour of the subjugation of humanity, I think one can reasonable argue in favour of the removal of undesirables, at least if it's gotten to the point where they're puking into the Port decanter.

Meanwhile, for those of you who think that Kuryakin looks like Trotsky, Kuryakin was in disguise in that image I captured supra. Please, watch the show, or pick your own reader tip. Thanks. And look on the bright side, David McCallum is currently scheduled for a role in next Friday night's SDA Late Nite Radio too ;-)

Posted by: Vitruvius at May 8, 2009 10:28 PM

Sorry Vit - I will be a more patient person and will sit and watch the show now!

Posted by: Erik Larsen at May 8, 2009 10:33 PM

Why does Kuryakin look like Trotsky?
Kirk and Spock, huh?
Better question: does Kuryakin look like Ducky?

Posted by: Vitruvius at May 8, 2009 11:01 PM

That doesn't really work, Peter. If you want to riff off the UNCLE thing, and not vary two parameters at the same time (which is always dangerous in incremental comedy), and given that C and G are glottally distinct, then you would probably be better off with one of: carbuncle, endosiphuncle, furuncle, homuncle, nuncle, peduncle, prepeduncle, pseudonymuncle, ratiuncle, sectiuncle, sermuncle, siphuncle, subpeduncle, or vibratiuncle. I'm just saying; you know.

Change of subject: Isn't ANYBODY responsible for ANYTHING any more?

I just watched the National and two of the stories, with sympathetic clucking from Carol McNeil were:

- Another child was lost in a house fire on the Sandy Bay Reserve in Manitoba. That's the second fatal fire there this year. In each instance, there were a dozen people in the house, including eight children. So who is to blame? Why we all are of course.

The adults couldn't get all of the children out in time, "because the houses were overcrowded", and they were overcrowded because the gumint hadn't built more. The most recent one to burn was only a few months old BTW.

- The fool who lost his wife to hypothermia this winter when they skied out of bounds, without food, adequate clothing or even matches and without telling anyone of their intentions is now suing everything that moves. The pair got lost, ate snow for a week and were rescued a day after the woman expired.

Someone should take the clown helicopter skiing without skis and without landing the helicopeter.
Unloading at 1,000 feet above terrain would be about right.

Remember that American comedian who made a quip at three in the morning about the Canadian military? Well, get this, my channel guide (I'm on Satellite) said I had "mail." I opened it. This is what it said:

"We've made changes to how we offer Fox news. There have been recent inappropriate and disrespectful comments on the channel regarding the Canadian Military's efforts in Afghanistan, comments that were found to be offensive to our customers. In response, we are moving the channel to an opt-in service starting May 19."

In other words, Fox will be removed from customers' channel lineup unless the customers contact Shaw to tell them not to delete it.

Ridiculous.

MORE LIBERAL HYPOCRISY

Tonight, CBC.Ca is featuring a story where Fred Doucet, Mulroney's adviser and trusted friend, allegedly hid facts in the 1985 Air India Flight 182 bombing.
Is this going to overshadow Ruby Dhalla and the "slave" story?? I doubt it!
It was a cheap shot on the part of the CBC to run a 24 year old story to try and cover up for the three day old "Dhallagate"

Thanks for the memories Vitruvius. Haven't watched Man from Uncle for quite a long time and remember thinking it was really neat when I was a kid. I liked Ilya Kuryakin's character then and it's probably why I watched NCIS as it appeared something was familiar. I didn't hear the line "what did Ducky look like when he was younger" until after I'd decided to Google David McCallum as I knew I'd seen him somewhere before. Now that History Channel has NCIS on every day of the week I finally heard the Ilya Kuryakin line.

Another series that I'd like to see again is Get Smart mainly to see if I still find it as funny as I did 40 years ago.

On a more serious note, there is a lengthy article at wattsupwiththat on use of ocean temperatures over the last 10-20 years to refute AGW. Atmospheric temperatures are of relevance to people who happen to be immersed in a volume of air at a certain temperature but the heat content of the atmosphere is miniscule compared to the heat content of the oceans. The first 2.5 meters of ocean have the same heat content as the whole of the atmosphere about them and the mean ocean depth is somewhat in excess of 2.5 meters.

Check out: http://wattsupwiththat.com/2009/05/06/the-global-warming-hypothesis-and-ocean-heat/#more-7646
for the most damning refutation of the AGW hypothesis. The AGW fanatics have made explicit predictions regarding ocean heat content as a result of the massive amount of global warming that is occuring primarily in their observations. Their predictions are that ocean heat content has substantially increased over the last decade. There is only one minor problem with this theory: ocean heat content has been slowly decreasing over the past decade. The difference in their predictions and actual measurements is on the order of 4.2 x10^22 joules over the last 5 years. A quick glance at the AGW theory graph superimposed on the actual data reveals that there is a very major problem with the AGW models. IMHO this is enough to totally discredit the theory. Here is a prediction that they made and it was proven false.

I'd like the mathematically inclined SDA readers to peruse this article to see if there are any defects. If the logic withstands scrutiny then this is something that can be used in legal actions against governments who have enacted legislation based on invalid principles. I'd love to be involved in a class action lawsuit against the BC government to force them to return all of the carbon taxes they've collected by lying about the reasons they were collecting them. I'm saving all of my reciepts for gasoline and natural gas and all other reciets in which an environmental levy is collected and am looking forward to getting this money stolen from me back.

I have this vision of the year 3,000 AD, some future version of the CBC holding daily meetings to interrogate Mulroney's brain held in a bottle, a new scandal every week. By this time, the total number of viewers is seven.

In this vision, Harper is still not letting anyone say anything without his permission.

And Iggy is getting really bored with Stornoway.

Garth Turner no show
"Failure to show means that more than a dozen people working directly on the program and 200,000 regular viewers were inconvenienced.

I have to say, however, that with former MP Garth Turner I'm not particularly surprised. Turner has been on my show several times over the years, sometimes requesting the opportunity, and now that he has a book out, Sheeple, we were willing to give him a full hour of interview. Rather generous of us, actually. "

Alan, MSM has been very irresponsible on this. In peddling his book trashing Harper, he was very popular last week, doing the book promotion tour on the tv news programs (the friendly ones). But now that his credibility and reputation is in tatters (okay, it has been for a log time) there's nothing to report it seems. Certainly Coren's 200,000 viewers per night is a lot more than any program of its kind would get (such as Politics or Power Play) so it should be reported. But what I love is the irony. Garth's claims in his book are that Harper is controlling and doesn't tolerate dissent. And yet Garth himself doesn't won't address criticism and shuts the COMMENTS off on his website.

bryanr: "Why is Ruby Dhalla always the victim?"

Because, her equity/feminist/multicultural/kid-of-a-single-mom bona fides are all in place.

Given this pedigree, Ruby gets what Ruby wants every time. Nothing is ever Ruby's fault, it's everybody else's -- and we all get to pay, and pay, and pay.

The host culture/apple is being eaten from the inside. Soon, the parasites will ensure there's nothing left of the apple -- the seeming intention of the lib-left/equity/feminist/multi-culti lobby -- but, then, what are they going to feed off?

Rasmussen has a tracking poll on Congressional Support.

In Jan of 08, the Democrats were at 43% and the Republicans at 38. Over the 2008 year, the Democrats were always in the high 40s, about 47% average, while the Republians were about 37% average.

The Democrats began to lose ground in March when they slipped below 40; they are now at 39%, while the Republicans have moved to 40%.

This is still not a trend; it could be a blip and it is time, now, for the Republicans to define a few leaders and issues. They couldn't do this too early in the Obama regime; they had to allow independents and indeed, everyone, to realize that Obama is harmful to America.

A key problem is that almost 70% of GOP voters think that Congress Republicans are out of touch with the base. Indeed, what is emerging is a Washington governance that is completely out of touch with Americans.

The Democratic latte crowd IS in touch, but latte-drinkers are passive govt-funded employess, not entrepreneurs. They absorb money; they don't make it. Therefore, no economy can function with the latte crowd in control; that group has to be marginalized to their conferences and rhetoric.

From today’s National Post vis a vis WHO and the swine flu:

http://www.nationalpost.com/news/story.html?id=1578331

"Sometimes some of us think WHO stands for the ‘World Hysteria Organization,'" said Dr. Richard Schabas, who was Ontario's chief medical officer of health from 1987 to 1997. "There seems to be a culture at WHO where they've convinced themselves that a pandemic is such an imminent danger that they overreact."

WHO is “the directing and coordinating authority for health within the United Nations system ... responsible for … shaping the health research agenda, setting norms and standards …providing technical support to countries and monitoring and assessing health trends” (http://www.who.int/about/en/).

Hmmm … 'sounds like a pretty far-reaching organization, doesn’t it? Lots of potential to play power politics favouring the UN view of things …

I was curious to read the full lyrics of the infamous Rolling Stones song:

She would never say where she came from
Yesterday don't matter if its gone
While the sun is bright
Or in the darkest night
No one knows
She comes and goes

Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still I'm gonna miss you...

Don't question why she needs to be so free
Shell tell you its the only way to be
She just cant be chained
To a life where nothings gained
And nothings lost
At such a cost

There's no time to lose, I heard her say
Catch your dreams before they slip away
Dying all the time
Lose your dreams
And you will lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind?

Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still I'm gonna miss you...

Hodge Re the star & buy canada policy

This is exactly what we Dont want is Protectionist's policies & that's what the O' wants, Can you imagine what would happen to the amount of trade that flows between the Canada/US alone!.
The PM has spoken out on this, realizing that protectionist policies in a time of global recession would only further the problem and delay recoveries.
Many local govt's Ie city councils have already started this trend & have adopted policies to buy strictly Canadian & that could prove to be detrimental in the long run.
Now here is my question to that part, If city councils are so concerned about strictly canadian then Why were they Not adopting that policy Before this Global Recession occured? The reason because they were looking for the Best Price(in most cases,Toronto not incl.) such as you would do as a consumer.

Before the election, I remember a sda post on Obama's protectionist tendencies that would nail Canada. Of course, our beloved media sat on it.

[As reported by the Star's Les Whittington, the recently installed piping for a new health centre at a military base in California was actually ripped out of the ground when it was discovered that it was made in Canada. Meanwhile, a manufacturer of pumps who has been selling into the American market for more than three decades finds that, for the first time, he is being required to certify that his products are "made in the U.S.A." As a result, he may have to shift some of his production south of the border.]

"The “precarious state of the U.S. polar bear population”
9 05 2009

Today’s MSM is woefully inept at catching mistakes.Worse, reporters are often woefully inadequate at getting facts straight in the first place. And, with instant electronic distribution, it is much like a Roman vomitorium. Eat, regurgitate, repeat, rinse.

Yesterday’s LA Times story on the Obama administration deciding not to use polar bears as a global warming tool that we covered on WUWT had this whopper of a mistake:

“…the precarious state of the U.S. polar bear population…”.

It seems many other news outlets were content to pickup and regurgitate this story. A Google search on the phrase yields 283 results (as of 9AM today) and some big name media names are attached, like the Chicago Tribune."

Posted by: maz2 at May 9, 2009 1:05 PM

Let's take conspiracy theories to ridiculous heights: Maybe the Liberals got Ruby Dhalla on the front pages of our newspapers to take away from Prime Minister Stephen Harper's surprise visit to Af'stan. You know? Even though they probably didn't know he was going to Afghanistan, they made sure to minimize Canadians' exposure to PM Stephen Harper's concern for our men and women in the military ...

We're not hearing much from the MSM about this trip, I guess because it puts our Prime Minister in a good light. Their tactic at all times is to make PMSH and his party look bad and the Librano$, their party of preference, look good.

Once you've figured this out, it's not hard to read between the lines to the real story.

Posted by: batb at May 9, 2009 1:12 PM

And, irony of ironies, one of the first things PMSH did when he arrived in Afghanistan was to board a Canadian Forces helicopter to fly to the Arghandab Valley 37 kilometres northeast of Kandahar city to view the Dahla dam project.

We know which Dhalla/Dahla the Canadian MSM find more fascinating.

Slightly off topic:
Whats with the references to Tuesday?
-Band called Till Tuesday
-Stones tune..Ruby Tuesday
-Moody blues...Tuesday Afternoon

I KNOW there is some profound significance to this phenomemnon.
