After my bike ride at Alki Beach at sunset I shot some night photos with my tripod and a couple of telephotos.

Enjoying the Northwest

Reviewer Rob

I went for a nice bike ride today along the Puget Sound. It was near Ballard, I think. It’s been a long-time goal of mine to get here and see this place, a real remarkable wonder of nature. Although it was a warm, sunny day and everything was perfect I have to say I was almost underwhelmed. Seemed like I was at the shore of a large lake and not a part of the Pacific Ocean. I guess technically the Sound is perhaps a separate body of water. But I had to reach down and scoop up a handful of wet gravel here to smell if it’s salt water. This really didn’t seem like to mighty Pacific, it was so calm and peaceful. The news reports were saying that this was going to be the hottest day of the year.

I’m uploading a behind-the-scenes video or two of my photo shoot the other day with K, a local art model (she works as a Seattle-based traveling nude model and also paints from her own photography so she’s an artist/photographer/model). The two black and whites posted below are from the shoot in her downtown Seattle basement art studio workspace. The videos are being uploaded to the Members folder here for Premium high rollers, SO JOIN UP.

Test Marketing The Unthinkable

When Is It Enough?

“Fascism does not need a majority – it typically comes to power with about forty percent support and then uses control and intimidation to consolidate that power.”

The past as prologue.

The past as prologue.

Reposted from the Facebook feed of Paul Kaufman

Fintan O’Toole wrote this yesterday in The Irish Times:

“To grasp what is going on in the world right now, we need to reflect on two things. One is that we are in a phase of trial runs. The other is that what is being trialled is fascism – a word that should be used carefully but not shirked when it is so clearly on the horizon. Forget “post-fascist” – what we are living with is pre-fascism.

It is easy to dismiss Donald Trump as an ignoramus, not least because he is. But he has an acute understanding of one thing: test marketing. He created himself in the gossip pages of the New York tabloids, where celebrity is manufactured by planting outrageous stories that you can later confirm or deny depending on how they go down. And he recreated himself in reality TV where the storylines can be adjusted according to the ratings. Put something out there, pull it back, adjust, go again.

Fascism doesn’t arise suddenly in an existing democracy. It is not easy to get people to give up their ideas of freedom and civility. You have to do trial runs that, if they are done well, serve two purposes. They get people used to something they may initially recoil from; and they allow you to refine and calibrate. This is what is happening now and we would be fools not to see it.

One of the basic tools of fascism is the rigging of elections – we’ve seen that trialled in the election of Trump, in the Brexit referendum and (less successfully) in the French presidential elections. Another is the generation of tribal identities, the division of society into mutually exclusive polarities.

Fascism does not need a majority – it typically comes to power with about forty percent support and then uses control and intimidation to consolidate that power. So it doesn’t matter if most people hate you, as long as your forty percent is fanatically committed. That’s been tested out too.

And fascism of course needs a propaganda machine so effective that it creates for its followers a universe of “alternative facts” impervious to unwanted realities. Again, the testing for this is very far advanced.

But when you’ve done all this, there is a crucial next step, usually the trickiest of all. You have to undermine moral boundaries, inure people to the acceptance of acts of extreme cruelty. Like hounds, people have to be blooded. They have to be given the taste for savagery.

Fascism does this by building up the sense of threat from a despised out-group. This allows the members of that group to be dehumanised. Once that has been achieved, you can gradually up the ante, working through the stages from breaking windows to extermination.

People have to be given the taste for savagery. Fascism does this by building up the sense of threat from a despised out-group.

It is this next step that is being test-marketed now. It is being done in Italy by the far-right leader and minister for the interior Matteo Salvini. How would it go down if we turn away boatloads of refugees? Let’s do a screening of the rough-cut of registering all the Roma and see what buttons the audience will press. And it has been trialled by Trump: let’s see how my fans feel about crying babies in cages. I wonder how it will go down with Rupert Murdoch.

To see, as most commentary has done, the deliberate traumatisation of migrant children as a “mistake” by Trump is culpable naivety. It is a trial run – and the trial has been a huge success. Trump’s claim last week that immigrants “infest” the US is a test-marketing of whether his fans are ready for the next step-up in language, which is of course “vermin”.

And the generation of images of toddlers being dragged from their parents is a test of whether those words can be turned into sounds and pictures. It was always an experiment – it ended (but only in part) because the results were in.

And the results are quite satisfactory. There is good news on two fronts. First, Rupert Murdoch is happy with it – his Fox News mouthpieces outdid themselves in barbaric crassness: making animal noises at the mention of a Down syndrome child, describing crying children as actors. They went the whole swinish hog: even the brown babies are liars. Those sobs of anguish are typical of the manipulative behaviour of the strangers coming to infest us – should we not fear a race whose very infants can be so devious?

Second, the hardcore fans loved it: Fifty-eight percent of Republicans are in favour of this brutality. Trump’s overall approval ratings are up to 42.5 per cent.
This is greatly encouraging for the pre-fascist agenda. The blooding process has begun within the democratic world. The muscles that the propaganda machines need for defending the indefensible are being toned up. Millions and millions of Europeans and Americans are learning to think the unthinkable.

So what if those black people drown in the sea? So what if those brown toddlers are scarred for life? They have already, in their minds, crossed the boundaries of morality. They are, like Macbeth, “yet but young in deed”. But the tests will be refined, the results analysed, the methods perfected, the messages sharpened. And then the deeds can follow.”

Let us protect our freedom with all our democratic power, and continue to be brave with everything we must face.”

Going Private Members Only

Members Only

I’m going to upload the members’ videos to the website now rather than put them on all Vimeo. It’s easier to add a new member’s username and password to the website one time than it is to manually add a new viewer to each private video on Vimeo, where you have to first follow them and then select them for each individual video as you go along adding new files. I don’t see that as a viable way of doing things as the list of video and members continues to grow.

Recently shot videos are being uploaded in their original hi-rez format, which I may change soon, reducing them to speed loading on most browsers. Right now Chrome followed by Firefox seem to be responding best.

These three videos were added to the secure section of the website, with more on their way:

Portland’s Annual WNBR

The World Naked Nike Ride came to Portland again and we got video for you.

by Reviewer Rob

Being on the road like this I should develop a way to bring in some income rather than rely on savings. Therefore I’m going to make full length videos available only to paying customers/patrons/members, starting with this one from the World Naked Bike Ride in Portland last weekend: .

Nightriding Portland

Get A Light

I went on a bike ride last night along the Pdx Willamette River waterfront. It was great to see the city that way but while heading back over Steel Bridge a female cyclist with a helmet, proper lights and other safety gear on her bike yelled at me angrily, “Get a light, man!,” as we passed going in opposite directions.

I like riding in the dark at night. The streets are usually pretty well lit anyway, you’re more in-tune with your environment and it keeps your night vision intact. But it was the second time a female bike rider yelled at me for breaking the rules while riding here; the other time was after the NBR last weekend when I jumped a red light even though no cars were coming. The women are really vocal in this town apparently.

So I guess I better find a bike store tomorrow or buy a light at Walmart before any more night rides. Portlanders take their pedal transporstion seriously.

Steel Bridge bike ride, PDX.

Nicaraguan Student Protests Turn Deadly

Deadly Riots Dispatch

U.S. State Department Orders Families Of Staff Out Of Nicaragua

“At Least 24 Dead…” ~ NPR

The words below are a reprint from the 4/23/18 Facebook post of American expat Tim “McSheep” Bolen in Nicaragua:

5 days Protesting were not in vain!
Please share, repost and comment! Sometimes history needs an active audience.

I wrote a post earlier but think I accidentally deleted it so here’s a rewrite.

(Updated and revised as of 4:45 p.m. my time.)

The protested changes to pensions and income have been repealed! But the 30+ lives that were lost and ongoing damage to property will remain. Right now in Managua, Nicaragua’s capital, electricity is in and out and water has been cut off. It’s been days since three of the country’s independent news outlets have been cut off the air and silenced, as the other Sandinista stations continue. As of two days ago the military was deployed to Managua and to other cities. In Leon whole city streets have been burnt, there and in Masaya and the capitol, rock roads have been taken apart and formed into barricades to protect neighborhoods and are being patrolled by citizens. Police, military and Sandinista agents have been looting supermarkets all over the country. Now citizens are protecting the gates of the markets and retrieving stolen goods, though all blame is being put on protesters. Remaining open markets are expected to close if discord continues. As of this morning many gas stations have been closed and the one in town is empty (but it is said to have some more this afternoon).

The president, after talking to business leaders, has repealed the issue that started these protests. But since that time so many people here have other issues to handle with the ruling “party”. Once police had locked students in universities and shot in them and also at churches a wave of disgust and anger has echoed through the community.

I put out my best intentions for this conflict to be over soon. Though some people think that revolution or civil war may be on the horizon. I put my best in tensions out to people here, in Syria and all over the world, for peace. So many kind people all over the world trying to just live a decent life and provide for their families are being destroyed by the bad decisions and greed of the wealthy few.

The Growing Weed Map

Cannabis Will Be Free

testimonial from a formerly underground weed commerce worker

(originally on her Instagram @apneatic)

Yesterday was 4.20 🌬I was given this shirt in 2012 by a vendor when I worked at a dispensary for 3 weeks in Seattle. When Chase and I were making @wmrtwo we ran out of money from our investor during post production and I had to move to Seattle and grow medical marijuana to finish funding our movie. I went and worked at a dispensary to make sure I was completing my first grow cycle properly. This was back when I could sell my hydro flower for $240/oz or $640/qp at farmers markets around Washington state. I got out of it soon after weed was made recreationally legal and the prices growers could get dropped really fast. But we got all the money we needed for our movie so I quit growing and selling it. Then I moved to Portland to study physics 🌈 instant photo of me studying organic chemistry by @tmronin

STORMY FOR PRESIDENT

STORMY FOR PRESIDENT IN 2020!

Or, Why The Stormy Daniels / David Dennison Saga Really Matters: She May Do What All Those 2016 G.O.P. Candidates Could Not…

by Bob Yunger

Stormy Daniels sure is good at what she does. She only had to have sex with him one time, and after she got her hooks into him she never let go. What a pro! You’ve gotta admire her for the dedicated professional she is: only fucks Donald Trump ONE TIME in a hotel room and now, like a chump, TWELVE YEARS LATER HE’S STILL PAYING FOR IT! Ha. Ha ha. Nice work, Stormy Daniels, niiiiiiice werrrrrk.

With all the criticism the adult entertainment industry has to put up with on a regular basis, it’s really amazing. Today it’s still the ultimate tenderloin district for law enforcement due to the fact that so many of the people in it are young and naive and have something to hide. The ones who survive and carry on for a number of years have to develop real skills to deal with the constant parade of nonsense.

Stormy Daniels reportedly began her career in the stripper business at the age of 17 in her native city of Baton Rouge. So by the time she met Donald Trump she had been working the traps for ten years, AND she was starring in porn films by then. She was a veteran who had seen it all. She’d heard it all too, from every pathetic loser with an “I’ll make you a star” story and walked into the club thinking he’d find a dumb blonde to suck his dick on the false hope that he’d be The One to save her and whisk her away from this life.

Well Stormy liked her chosen life and she saw right through this rich guy’s bullshit I’LL PUT YOU ON MY TV SHOW lies. When he backed out as expected that was okay. She had a fallback plan, one that would turn her personal Donald Trump experience into a payout for her. No amount of shaming would turn her back, because, as they said about her in print, ‘shame isn’t especially useful to a porn star’.

So finally Donald Trump, after a career as a philandering shark, one ripping off contractors and investors left and right with his fast talking salesman spiel, it may be a woman who takes him down after all. A woman who is just as ruthless and without pity as he is. A true top-of-the-food-chain apex predator.
