+ 1

It was one of my entries into music so, even though I am not big on them currently and have not been for a while, kudos for them, I still revisit some old albums from time to time, Try Master of Puppets. Ciff Burton is great, and so is his piece Orion.

I don't hate Metallica because I haven't heard them, rather the other way around! ;)

It took under 5 minutes to grow an intense dislike to Metallica.

hope you guys find the errors of you ways.


Grammar police eh? Well, because I was a teenager in the late seventies, and in the early eighties, when FZ was putting out an album every other month (i exaggerate sometimes), and lot's of people were really into Metallica and AC/DC. I HAD no use for that band. It goes without saying that I still HAVE no use for that band, probably because I possess "At the Mountains of Madness" in my record collection and that particular album blows any metal band to pieces.

HOWEVER !

Maximum respect for that band for getting the Polar Music Prize. Bravo!

Sorry to say that but it's business as usual in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

Samba shut up the voice of big corporate media in Brazil...

Starring role! Rio carnival dancers sparkle at samba parade as 72,000 spectators watch 'greatest show on Earth' in sweltering heat

Rio de Janeiro came alive on Sunday night as the Brazilian city's famous carnival hit its peak with huge parade
Thousands of dancers wearing colourful and outlandish costumes performed to pounding samba anthems
Two-night extravaganza began in city's Sambodromo, where 72,000 spectators sat in roasting conditions


It is dubbed the 'greatest show on Earth' with thousands of sparkling Brazilian dancers ignoring sweltering heat to put on a spectacular samba parade.

Rio de Janeiro came alive on Sunday night as the city's carnival hit its peak in a stunning cocktail of glamour, eccentric costumes and pounding samba anthems.

The two-night extravaganza began in the Sambodromo, where 72,000 spectators sat in roasting conditions, with many thousands more milling around outside selling drinks, putting on colourful outfits or simply soaking up the atmosphere because they were unable to get tickets.

But amid the feather headdresses, sparkly G-strings and dancers dressed as everything from trees to Chinese merchants, serious politics marked this year's parades.

One reveller dressed up as Dracula to represent Brazilian President Michel Temer while a giant backside mocked Rio de Janeiro's mayor during the unusually politicised event.

Latin America's biggest country is only just emerging from its worst recession on record. Violent crime in cities like Rio is rocketing, and politics is riddled with corruption and lack of leadership ahead of October presidential elections.

Rio kicks off Carnival parade with anti-establishment tone

IO DE JANEIRO (AP) — There are some Brazilians who probably aren't finding much to enjoy in Rio de Janeiro's colorful Carnival parades — the mayor, the governor and the president.


An anti-establishment tone is echoing through this year's celebrations in Brazil. And Sunday night's parade at Rio's Sambadrome featured entries that blasted the country's political leadership at a moment of economic slump and political scandal.

President Michel Temer, Rio de Janeiro state Gov. Luiz Fernando Pezao and Rio Mayor Marcelo Crivella were expected to skip the two-day bash at the Sambadrome. The samba parades used to be a magnet for politicians before a sprawling corruption investigation around state-run oil giant Petrobras began in 2014. Now officeholders fear being booed and even attacked by critics during the party.

Temer, whose popularity is in single digits, spent his last Carnival as president with a group of 40 people on a military-guarded beach south of Rio. Earlier a few hundred revelers in the capital of Brasilia organized a street party to make fun of his recent poor health and his unpopular pension overhaul.(...)

Calvin, do you go to Everytown meets in your town? They work at canvassing for awareness and push for legislating that aim to limit such attacks. They're legit and care. Please tell others, don't get stuck in the cricket's chorus...

Mueller indicts 13 Russian nationals over 2016 election interference

(CNN) Special counsel Robert Mueller has indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for allegedly meddling in the 2016 presidential election, charging them with conspiracy to defraud the United States, the Department of Justice announced Friday.

In addition, three defendants were charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud, and five defendants with aggravated identity theft.

"The defendants allegedly conducted what they called information warfare against the United States, with the stated goal of spreading distrust towards the candidates and the political system in general," Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said.

Mueller had convened the grand jury as part of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election as well as any possible connections between Russia and Trump campaign associates.

Here's a moderately interesting tidtit:

Last month my credit card was cancelled. A consulting firm in Kosovo tried to make a $12,000 charge against it. The bank didn't even bother to check with me: it was pretty obvious that the credit card had been hacked, so they rejected the charge and automatically issued new cards.

Here's the interesting part. I just found out the consulting firm in Kosovo is connected to a Russian guy who was indicted in the Mueller investigation.

Hooray! I'm part of a criminal enterprise...
