Hamilton and the KotGC


From Playbill - Face value of tickets purchased at the box office are as follows: Standard tickets start at $139 and Premium tickets start at $549. So a family of 4 can sit in the cheap seats for about $550 which is worth it if you love musical theater (I don't) and want to see conventional US history retold as a song and dance gimmicky minstrel show. And what does the audience get for their money aside from a sore ass, control group tested melodies, Disneyfide costumes and set design, hammed up "acting" of high school history book characters - well, if you're the soon to be VP, you get lectured on your way out the door. It's to be expected that a Knight of the Golden Circle would feel compelled to speak truth to power when he has a hated Republican trapped in the theater but there is something particularly ironic when that "truth" teller is Brandon Victor Dixon (dressed as Aaron Burr) graduate of 0.01%er St. Albans School located beside the National Cathedral on one of the 7 hills of New Rome and Columbia University (known as King's College in Hamilton's day). So BVD's little speech was not so much T to P but rather, strange to say, Multi-Cult NWO Power speaking to Hoosier Truth.

The KOTCB blog pointed out in a previous post, Trump is exactly the type of person who founded the USA and all the talk about how the Founders never intended someone "like" Trump to attain the office of presidency is rubbish - worse, it's a lie propagated by lousy history and bland corporate pop culture. The fact is that Trump believes the same thing as Alexander Hamilton and, like Hamilton, he is despised by the same kind of people. Those people are Americans Loyal to Leviathan and in colonial times they thought Hamilton and all patriot revolutionaries were insane for turning on their English masters. Once the war was over and the Americans had won their independence many of these wealthy urban swells packed up and moved to Canada - and they've looked down on the lower 48 ever since - but unfortunately not ALL of them left. These loyalists are not represented in modern day musicals (or history books) but their progeny are still living in New York City, and many other cities in coastal America and they still threaten to move to Canada but unfortunately I don't think they will.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work."

I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months viewershi…

I've Got You Dumb Motherfuckers Eating Right Out Of My Hand

In 2011 John Lasseter wrote an opinion piece for The Onion which exposed Pixar's production strategy and shocking success in the marketplace: "Yes, after the success of our first few movies we had a hunch you'd continue to enjoy the wonderfully designed animation and our smart, lyrical writing, but I didn't think we'd create a horde of drooling morons ready to drop everything just to watch a fucking rat cook dinner." This observation was in reference to a Pixar film titled "Ratatouille" about a rat who dreams of becoming a French chef which, to my lights, created one of the most unappetizing and subversive stories ever told. The idea of rats running roughshod in a Michelin-starred restaurant is bad enough but when the proposition that "Anyone can cook" is taken to its evil and impossible extreme I must object for France and humanity. Using that movie and others as an example Lasseter makes the point that his audience (he calls them "…

New York Values

“Global Reach :30” CME Group—Commercial Spot from VSA Partners on Vimeo.

Don't mind me, I'm just going to use the island of Manhattan as my own personal driving range. I'm  in the futures and derivatives game and you never know what's going to happen. "Opportunities aren't always obvious" as I like to say and they "drop in" unexpectedly.


Sometimes it works out great.

Other times...


And those poor souls with a lump on their head don't like the game or putting the driving range on top of the Pan Am building. Last nights election was a long par 5 for the Constitutional Monarchist in this years election and he shot a triple bogey. One of the reasons:
"Unsurprisingly, it was Bernie Sanders who won the vast majority of the anti-Wall-Street Democratic vote." New York Democrats are crazy, but a majority of them are not dumb (in truth, a lot of the dumb ones have emigrated to Vermont) so while they'll flirt with "revolution" wh…
