Small World (Or Town) Sunday

Seeking hints, tips & how-to info I decided to watch "Painting and Weathering a Brick Building", & what is the first edifice seen, as an example of a "ghost sign", than L.A.'s own Starkman Bldg., which by the mid-1980s had been converted to artist lofts & was a hotbed of post-punk artsy-fartsy whatnot?Academic jagoffery thereupon, to wit: "Towards a multimethod approach for film geography: a case study of Los Angeles’ Nate Starkman Building". 

Or, you could buy one, although this reporter wouldn't shell out US$235.00 if they won't even provide an image of the 3-D printed one. Hell, I wouldn't shell out that kind of money for anything railroad-related.

Fuck The Police, Part II

Ryan Grenoble / HuffPost:
Entire Town's Newspapers Stolen On Day It Runs Story About Rape At Police Chief's Home  —  “It's pretty clear that someone didn't want the community to read the news this week,” said Ouray County Plaindealer co-publisher Erin McIntyre. It's an old-fashioned paper caper ― but maybe don't call the cops.

Police Continue Murdering W/ Impunity Down South

Families in disbelief after hundreds of bodies found buried behind Mississippi jail

The families are angry their loved ones were buried in so-called pauper's graves marked by just a metal rod and a number and families were never notified of their deaths. The startling revelation came months after the mother of 37-year-old Dexter Wade filed a missing persons report last March. It wasn't until August when Bettersten Wade learned her son had been hit by a police car and killed, then buried in that same cemetery.

Bank Robber

A 71-year-old who served over 40 years in federal custody for four bank robbery convictions was arrested on suspicion of robbing a Sun Valley bank, the Los Angeles Police Department announced Tuesday.


Several witnesses observed Bell driving away in a 2002 silver Volvo sedan and called 911.

Officers located Bell in his vehicle near the intersection of Olinda Street and Roscoe Boulevard where he was taken into custody without incident, Melissa Ohana, a Los Angeles Police Department public information officer, told City News Service.

Sounds as if poor ol' Mr. Bell is institutionalized & wanted to go back to the joint.[CNS via]

Nostalgia Corner

Owned & operated one of these in the late '50s. Do not remember the helmet, but I must've had it too (Might've been too small for my giant head.) as I remember the oxygen mask had a piece of cellulose or plastic in it for the voice distortion. And I'm pretty sure the radar scope had something behind it to conceal the innards & make it a bit more realistic. 'Though maybe not. Nostalgia & memory are tricky.

Compare & Contrast

Rich people:Poor people:Limbo (A nice hotel.) vs. diarrhea & death.

Even in your Big Brother surveillance society some people can still get away w/ stuff.


One of the biggest remaining mysteries surrounding the riot is the identity of the person who placed two pipe bombs outside the offices of the Republican and Democratic national committees the day before the Capitol attack. Last year, authorities increased the reward to up to $500,000 for information leading to the person’s arrest. It remains unclear whether there was a connection between the pipe bombs and the riot.

Investigators have spent thousands of hours over the last three years doing interviews and combing through evidence and tips from the public, said David Sundberg, assistant director in charge of the FBI Washington Field Office.

“We urge anyone who may have previously hesitated to come forward or who may not have realized they had important information to contact us and share anything relevant,” he said in an emailed statement on Thursday.

The explosive devices were placed outside the two buildings between 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 5, 2021, but officers didn’t find them until the next day. Authorities were called to the Republican National Committee’s office around 12:45 p.m. on Jan. 6. Shortly after, a call came in for a similar explosive device found at the Democratic National Committee headquarters. The bombs were rendered safe, and no one was hurt.

Video released by the FBI shows a person in a gray hooded sweatshirt, a face mask and gloves appearing to place one of the explosives under a bench outside the DNC and separately shows the person walking in an alley near the RNC before the bomb was placed there. The person wore black and light gray Nike Air Max Speed Turf sneakers with a yellow logo.

Order Breaking Down

"Nah. Fuck that bitch."

At least Trump & Giuliani had the sense to wait until they were out of the courtroom before committing the same offenses for which they'd just been found liable.

It's difficult to get all of the truth. Full screen, longer, but w/o the naughty words.Course I'd like to see either of those senile wretches try a leap like that. And note the Admiralty/Maritime flag. Maybe "three-time felon" was justified.
