"With those kind of wizened, old Woody Herman experts who would kind of scold you as you bought a record, like, 'You're buying that one but he sold out on that record,' where I'd go, 'Okay, well tell me the Stan Kenton record I really need'. Then, they'd come running out and throw a record into your hand and grab you by the ear and drag you back to the counter and lecture you for another 20 minutes. We're trying to do that with the The Sound Of Vinyl website", he says.

This is all pure fantasy. She's married a non-existent power with a highly improbable prescience to create a kind of retrospective, fantasy football version of the nomination in which the momentous and weighty decisions all fell to her. It is highly reminiscent of the agonizing call in which she purportedly informed Bernie Sanders that he'd been right all along and the nomination race had been "rigged".

Trivia Question from Yesterday

China leads the world in the production of cabbage. What country consumes the most cabbage?

       Russia                                                      Source

In 2014, global production of cabbages (combined with other brassicas) was 71.8 million tonnes, led by China with 47% of the world total. Other major producers were India, Russia, and South Korea.

Cabbage consumption varies widely around the world: Russia has the highest annual per capita consumption at 20 kilograms (44 lb), followed by Belgium at 4.7 kilograms (10 lb), the Netherlands at 4.0 kilograms (8.8 lb), and Spain at 1.9 kilograms (4.2 lb). Americans consume 3.9 kilograms (8.6 lb) annually per capita.        Source

Tapings Canceled

'Tonight Show'

Tapings of "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" have been cancelled for the week of Nov. 6-10 in light of the death of Jimmy Fallon's mother, according to a statement from NBC. Repeat episodes will be scheduled.

Though Fallon keeps much of his personal life private, he revealed touching moments with his mother over the years. During a #MomQuotes segment of the show, he shared a memory of Gloria.

"My mom and I were talking on the phone for the third time that day and she actually said, 'We don't talk enough,'" he tweeted.

Fallon described his childhood with mom Gloria, dad Jim and sister Gloria in a 2004 New York magazine article. "My dad was in Vietnam, and he was in a doo-wop group," Fallon said. "My mom was like a total square; she wasn't allowed to leave her stoop in Brooklyn. She was a nun for about a month, but then she was like, 'You know what? I didn't get the calling!' Ha!"

Collins Dictionary

Word of the Year

One of president-for-now Donald Trump's (R-Fat Fingered Vulgarian) oft-repeated phrases has won an award. Fake news, the term regularly employed by Trump to describe a broad spectrum of media outlets, is Collins Dictionary's word of the year. The decision was made following a 365 percent rise in usage over the past year.

The term will now make its way into the group's next dictionary, with the definition of the noun reading: "false, often sensational, information disseminated under the guise of news reporting."

As Trump approaches the end of his first year in office, it's perhaps unsurprising that the word played such a big role in events. The president has decried a number of outlets for fabricating stories, including CNN, ABC, the New York Times, CBS and the Washington Post. In one instance, he declared them all fake news in a single tweet, ignoring an attack on a Minnesota mosque in order to tweet about himself back in August:

Fake news wasn't the only political term to make the shortlist. Other words considered for inclusion included Antifa, a short-hand term referring to the anti-fascist movement, and echo-chamber, used to describe an environment, especially on social media, in which a person doesn't receive exposure to conflicting ideas. Corbynmania, referring to the frenzy around British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, also rose in usage again with the country's summer election.

Bid To Save Species

Vaquita Porpoise

Mexico said Saturday it had captured a rare vaquita marina porpose -- a female of reproductive age -- as part of a last-ditch bid to save the critically endangered species.

The vaquita, the world's smallest porpoise, has been pushed to the brink of extinction by illegal gillnet fishing and there are just 30 left in the wild.

The Mexican government and conservation groups have launched an unprecedented plan to save the species by transporting as many as possible to a protected marine reserve.

A six-month old calf -- the first vaquita ever captured -- was caught last month but had to be released as it was too young to be separated from its mother.

However the second porpoise "is an adult female and of reproductive age," Pacchiano said on Twitter. "It's a great achievement that fills us with hope."

Archaeologist Criticises Pyramid Void 'Discovery'


An Egyptian archaeologist overseeing a project to scan a pyramid for voids on Saturday criticised the announcement of a discovery of a passenger plane-sized cavity in the Great Pyramid.

Scientists with the ScanPyramids project revealed on Thursday that the void discovered with subatomic particle scans was the first major structure found inside the pyramid since the 19th century.

It is thought to be at least 30 metres (98 feet) long and located above the "Grand Gallery" -- a sloped corridor almost 50 metres long and nine metres high which links Khufu's burial chamber at the pyramid's centre to a tunnel leading outside.

But Zahi Hawass, who heads the ScanPyramids science committee overseeing the project, said there was no new "discovery".

"The pyramid is full of voids and that does not mean there is a secret chamber or a new discovery," he said.

Massive Document Leak

The Paradise Papers

An enormous document leak of over 13 million files was revealed on Sunday, in what is being collectively referred to as the Paradise Papers. It's one of the biggest data leaks in history, and involves the elaborate offshore assets of top politicians and corporations, as well as some of the world's wealthiest individuals and celebrities.

Millions of the leaked files come from a single company, Appleby, which is based in Bermuda and offers offshore legal services. Appleby has denied any wrongdoing in relation to the findings from the documents.

A German newspaper called Süddeutsche Zeitung first obtained the leaked documents from an unnamed source, and then shared them with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists when it became clear there was too much information for one organization to handle.

So far, one of the most notable findings for U.S. politics is a report that President-for-now Donald Trump's (R-Corrupt) Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross shares business interests with Russian President Vladimir Putin's son-in-law. Ross previously failed to disclose the connection during his confirmation hearing earlier this year, according to NBC News.

A business associate of top White House adviser Jared Kushner is also named in the files, The Guardian reports. The documents show that two Kremlin-linked financial institutions invested significant funds into Twitter and Facebook, using companies controlled by Kushner associate Yuri Milner as a go-between to invest the money.

Our Tax Dollars At Work

'Tremendously Successful'

Donald Trump's (R-Crooked) press secretary used an official briefing to promote the billionaire's "tremendously successful" Hawaii hotel in what experts have said is an "ethics violation".

Sarah Huckabee Sanders (R-Unethical) was asked why the President-for-now had stopped off at Trump International Hotel Waikiki before he left the state to continue his tour of the Asia-Pacific region.

She told reporters: "It has been a tremendously successful project and he wanted to say hello and thank you to the employees for all their hard work."

Ms Sanders' comment again blurred the lines between Mr Trump's business and political lives, setting ethics experts on edge.

Norm Eisen, White House ethics czar under Mr Obama, tweeted: "ETHICS VIOLATION by @PressSec: under 5 CFR § 2635.702, can't promote Trump's businesses--same violation as @KellyannePolls committed."

Dozens Of Alligators


Disney World knew it had an alligator problem long before one of the beasts killed a toddler at the famous resort last year, official data showed Friday.

In the 15 months before an alligator dragged two-year-old Lane Graves underwater on June 14, 2016, 45 of the reptiles were captured on Disney property, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

From the day of the attack until September this year -- the latest data available -- trappers caught 95 alligators on Disney property.

There was a no swimming sign where Graves was captured while playing on a lakeside beach at a Disney hotel -- located across from the Magic Kingdom amusement park -- but nothing warning about alligators.

Soon after the attack, Disney put up signs at the lake warning of snakes and alligators. But the measure only works as a deterrent to tourists, since alligators can climb over barriers.

Air Quality 'Too Clean'

Environmental Protection Agency

A man who once claimed that the air in America was "a little too clean for optimum health", has been appointed to an advisory board of America's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Robert Phalen once claimed that children's lungs need to breathe irritants so their bodies can learn to fight them.

The former director of the Air Pollution Health Effects Laboratory at the University of California Irvine was appointed tothe agency's critical Scientific Advisory Board by EPA Director Scott Pruitt.

Speaking to the the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2012, Mr Phalen told the audience: "Modern air is a little too clean for optimum health."

Mr Phalen has also argued that the risks associated with modern particulate matter are "very small and confounded by many factors".

Weekend Box Office

'Thor: Ragnarok'

"Thor: Ragnarok" thundered to one of the year's best box-office debuts with an estimated $121 million domestically, proving again - just as its flexing its muscle - the might of the Walt Disney Co.

The weekend's other new nationwide release, STX Entertainment's "A Bad Moms Christmas," opened with $17 million over the weekend and $21.6 million since opening Wednesday, according to studio estimates Sunday. The holiday-themed sequel, which returns stars Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn, came in shy of the 2016 original's $23.8 million opening.

Several films opened in limited release, including Greta Gerwig's coming-of-age tale "Lady Bird," with Saoirse Ronan. On four screens in New York and Los Angeles, the A24 release drew some of the most packed theaters of the year with a $93,903 per-screen average.

Rob Reiner's "LBJ," with Woody Harrelson, debuted with $1.1 million in 659 theaters. Richard Linklater's "Last Flag Flying," with Bryan Cranston, Steve Carell and Laurence Fishburne, brought in a per-screen average of $10,500 in four theaters.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

Do you have something to say?
Anything that increased your blood pressure, or, even better, amused or entertained?

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?

In other words, submissions are welcome.
