ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On July 12th, 2019 at 7:04 pm

Because Friday night is Music Night

Another week done at the coalface of capitalism. Gosh, things are busy. I have itineraries to prepare for tomorrow, beers to chill and a Tour de France to watch on the box.

You were going to the first single (remember those?) I ever bought. Actually, got my mum to buy for me. But that can wait. There’s no end of great tunes on the Friday Night Jukebox, but they can all wait. I’m in the mood for something slightly different. A masterpiece of its type, I reckon. This noise came out of Scotland in the early 1970s. It came out of my new-fangled iPod thingy too this week. A good noise too.

Have fun whatever you’re up to this weekend. As always, feel free to share your top sounds down below.

CELEBRATE DIVERSITY

I know, I’m a sucker for multiculturalism, but you can’t deny that people should get out there and celebrate how they enrich society.

Some things are just fun to watch

RAUS! RAUS!

The BBC’s Panorama programme last night exposed the shocking extent of antisemitism in the institutionally antisemitic Labour Party. We are all shocked to learn that these pro-terrorist antisemites are antisemitic.

Cue the press awaiting Jeremy Corbyn this morning at his gate. The door opens, someone’s coming, it’s .. it’s .. a women ranting away and waving her arms around. She’s clearly mad. More than that, is she raving in Spanish? The man’s a complete shambles.

RAPINOE IS STILL AN IDIOT

World Cup parade: Megan Rapinoe demands equal pay for ‘badass team’

There’s a reason why top female models get paid more than men who model socks. And there’s a reason why top actresses earn more than jobbing male actors doing insurance adverts which appear on ITV3.

It’s the income derived from the demand for their services.

Men’s football is vastly more popular than women’s football. So the global income is vastly greater. So the men are sharing a vastly greater cake. That’s the way it is. That’s why Adele gets paid vastly more for a gig than a bloke who strums his guitar in a pub. This is simple supply and demand, straightforward economic justice. Megan Rapinoe is a fine player for a chick, but she’s as dumb as mud.

MEANWHILE, IN CLOWNLAND

A Christian doctor lost his job in a government department after he refused to refer to “a six-foot-tall bearded man” as ‘madam’, a tribunal heard.

Dr David Mackereth, 56, claims he was sacked as a disability benefits assessor by the Department of Work and Pensions over his religious beliefs.

The father-of-four alleges he was asked in a conversation with a line manager: “If you have a man six foot tall with a beard who says he wants to be addressed as ‘she’ and ‘Mrs’, would you do that?”

Dr Mackereth, an evangelist who now works as an emergency doctor in Shropshire, claims his contract was then terminated over his refusal to use transgendered pronouns.

I have no idea what his religion has to do with it, but this is the neo-Stalinist world of the British state sector now. Any deviation from the crazy, radical-left wing orthodoxy brings denunciation, loss of position and banishment.

Well I would like to make it clear that I too will not refer to “a six-foot-tall bearded man” as “madam”. This is because I live in reality and have self respect. Anyone who is offended or has a problem with that can get stuffed.

The Welsh can get stuffed. I’m thinking of the mentally deranged politicians and bureaucrats who have decided that school uniforms should be something called “gender neutral”. The poor boys and girls stand no chance. Boys wear trousers and girls wear skirts. That’s the way it is. Anything else is deviant.

R.I.P. Rip

By Patrick Van Roy On July 10th, 2019 at 1:43 pm

A unique actor Rip Torn started on stage moved to movie drama ended up in movie comedy. He has passed away at 88. He made some great film, but will probably be remembered just for the Larry Sanders Show or M.I.B. Here is a very short scene of him as a sheriff talking to Marshal Nick Nolte and a good little shootem up movie Extreme Prejudice.

According to the official statement announcing his death, Torn claimed his “secret weapon” was his belief that actors should “play drama as comedy and comedy as drama.” Among his other memorable film roles was a feckless country singer in Payday (1973), the taciturn farmer who takes a bride in Heartland (1982), the grizzled father to Mary Steenburgen’s Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings in the biopic Cross Creek (1984)—for which he was nominated for an Academy Award—and as an unctuous best-selling author in Wonder Boys (2000).
