Governor/Self-Promoter”Mario’s Son” Cuomo’s Windows Media Player Kosciusko Light Show And A Bridge Too Far To Bother With

https://i2.wp.com/static.lakana.com/media.fox5ny.com/photo/2017/04/27/lights2_1493341188521_3218938_ver1.0.jpgWhoop-dee-shit

Brooklyn-Queens, N.Y.

On an overcast Thursday evening above the polluted creek dividing the boroughs, our governor and tax payer funded glorified event planner and party promoter, Andrew “Mario’s Son” Cuomo opened the new Kosciusko bridge, a name he still can’t pronounce, to great cheesy fanfare to about under a hundred attendees and assembled elected officials, appointed aides, corporate news vans, and assembled cops and EMT’s to provide security and medical aid in the unlikelihood of a terrorist attack.

He christened the bridge with a drive in a vintage car once occupied by Franklin Delano Roosevelt, which had to be procured from a state museum and restored for use. The speculative costs for this vanity joyride is surely not cheap and sure to infuriate everyone who has to commute after this pompous act of self-aggrandizement. The only good takeaway from this sight and the subsequent mocking footage of Andy’s little trip is that he resembles Raymond Babbitt driving his dad’s car for the first time on a hotel driveway at Las Vegas in Rain Man.

I’m an excellent driver, EXCELSIOR!!!!!

After fulfilling his life long dream of driving a car that was used previously by a politician that Andy will never hold a candle to for what is ultimately some aspirational photo op for his DNC approved presidential bid, the long awaited and heavily promoted  promised debut of the bridge light and music show. It did not disappoint to say the least, for you can’t disappoint if it already sucked. Get ready as Governor Cuomo pulls the switch!!

Immediately noticeable is that the title posting on the youtube supplied by Mario’s son’s office refers to new infrastructure as the “K”, maybe it’s for brevity or to start a nomenclature trend, but that not only that Andy still can’t pronounce the name but probably can’t spell it. And to thwart any silly internet wisecracking or valid counterpoints, unfairly derided as trolling, GovNYCuomo closed the comments section (very clever Andy).

And for all the pomp and circumstance and millions of dollars in ad production and paying for broadcasting time promoting it (these ads are not available for online viewing, very clever again Andy), what the gargoyle prince of the state gave all those passing by and in attendance by the polluted creek was a display of cheesy lighting befit of two decade old windows media player 9 visual download plug in. So lame was the visuals that when the lousy laptop dj supplying the tunes, who sped up the city ballad anthems of Billy Joel and Frank Sinatra so they terribly segue into and from heavier and danceable jams by Ace Frehley and Alicia Keys. The worst part may have been when “New York State Of Mind” went into “New York Groove” and the visual produced on the latter song hilariously was syncopated to the beat. A drunk with a flashlight could probably do something comparably entertaining. And this was just the first part, this thing actually had an intermission.

The second part played 3 songs in their entirity that was supposed to fit the theme of Mario’s son’s glory hogging achievement (why didn’t they just play the NY songs in full instead of poorly mixing them in a medley?) The first was the worst song of all time, “Happy” by Pharell Williams, the second was “Signed,Sealed, Delivered” by Stevie Wonder and the last was inexplicably was “Born This Way” by Lady Gaga. The meaning behind this setlist could mean that with this bridge and show, Andy brought happiness, he signed, sealed and delivered it, and his political legacy was anointed to him at birth or yearns to be a unapologetic flaming drag queen.

All this effort exhibited and executed for a little ass bridge over a smelly ass creek in grossly, obscenely overvalued rental market rate areas certainly took precedence, if Cuomo and his stalwart aides deigned or cared to notice over the alarming recent state of a bridge across the borough of Queens, the Whitestone Bridge, reported by a concerned citizen, Alfredo Centola, last Sunday.

Queens Crap: The Whitestone Bridge Is Leaking Big Time

Severely scary stuff. This was after a rainy day of scattered storms. Looks like there is an alarming breach on the south side of the bridge. I am not an engineer, but this comment should be noted for future reference:

The new roadbed is already cracked, the runoff isn’t making into the drains.
The real issue here is whats going on inside the structure we cant see (or some contractor doesn’t WANT anybody to see)!!

Its a drainage failure alright. The fail could be 800 feet away in the suspended part of the roadway
Now if an expansion joint or roadway rebar and steel re-enforcement eventually fails due to rust & corrosion guess what happens ?

And this following comment for it’s sardonic morbidity

GERONIMO!!!!

What is it going to take to get this the refurbishment or attention it needs. Does it count in this new New York, it does feature the bridge in the new ads promoting growth and prospective bridge light shows, but it has various big buts against it. There isn’t any mass transit near the bridge in both boroughs, it’s not bike accessible, and the residency there lacks the millenial demographic with all their senior citizens and families with children. Still this is one of the major bridges, if not one of the biggest in the city. And it would really be a bit of a disaster if it developed a sudden sinkhole as cars are finished crossing over or heading to the Bronx, and who knows the conditions of the middle of the bridge.

So our stargazing future and event promoter governor better not park FDR’s car back in that museum or let go of his tech laser light show buddies yet, because he has to roll up his sleeves, creak his neck east, come up with some other fond memory of his cursing father and get some professionals over to Whitestone, stat. If he is such the big boy bridge builder and want’s to be the next leader of the free world in 4 years.

EXCELSIOR!!!

THIS Was The Moment Donald J. Trump Became President

https://i2.wp.com/www.reimag.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/51C4Vkw0E2L._SX327_BO1204203200_-1.jpg

And It never will be

Washington, D.C., United States Of America Under Trump

On April 26, 2017, with the announcement of the nation’s tax plan, This was the moment Donald Trump became President.

(In deference and disagreement to prior arguable proclamations by professional wealthy pundits Van Jones and Fareed Zakaria.)

The Executive Producer and Figurehead of the nation’s government, announced by proxy from his two equally avaricious plutocabinet members, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and Chief Economic Adviser Gary Cohn (there to make sure Spicer doesn’t fuck it up), both who certainly concocted this legislative Lufthansa Airlines heist, laid out the economic tax plan for the country.

This was the moment Donald Trump became President.

This tax plan is exactly what he ran on, aside from being immune from conflicts of interest with his businesses around the world that extends to his daughter and son-in-law. Since his burgeoning days as a inherited real estate magnate in NYC, he always found ways to mine and plunder government funds to obscenely enrich himself and in the process, like the media generated coverage of John Gotti, turn himself into a celebrity doing it.

This is precisely the only motivation why he ran for office. Ripping off people from all professions, blue collar, small business, or investor, is where Donald is a viking, a master. That is all he did his entire adult life, manipulate and rob off the backs, blood and sweat of people. Even recent history shows this with his settlement involving his criminally fake college. Especially since the most viable avenue to achieve billions is through equally conniving and avaricious yet weak officials holding influential positions they were elected to.

Everything about this budget plundering proposal is designed to benefit the former populist firebrand elected to run the country, in addition to all his appointed sociopath oligarchs in his cabinet.

From the hacking of the corporate tax rate from 39 to 15%, focusing on the phenomenon of a money hoarding loophole called “pass-through” income, a great boon to all the hedge funds, private equity and venture capital firms, which will be great news for all those who profit from real estate, think LLC’s where partners can remain practically anonymous, and brand recognition, say google and apple, or Trump who has 500 of these particular businesses and partnerships.

The repeal of the estate tax, which will liberate the Figurehead’s precious daughter and greedy bastard sons from the burden of contributing to the fiscal health of the country they never had to apply for a job in. The destruction of the alternative minimum tax, so Trump and like minded evaders can hoard millions more from creative deductions.

With this blatant diabolical plan, supposedly all those who store their piles of festering stinking dirty wealth in off shore tax havens to avoid contributing to the health and security of this country, arguably an act of financial treason, will suddenly repatriate their savings back here at a lower rate and with all that money saved, an mass influx of businesses will rise and jobs will insue. History shows that it’s unadulterated bullshit.

Sure, the Figurehead had to get to fulfilling the desires and needs to the people that voted for him, mostly to the motivated angry throngs that attended his campaign rallies. The Muslim travel ban, cracking down on illegal immigrants and defunding sanctuary cities, all which subsequently led to failure for under unconstitutional grounds, and the lowball estimated border wall, which has now been put on hiatus to avoid a shutdown of the government. Certainly, this won’t pass either because of the psychotic redistribution of wealth and loopholes the size of the Milky Way to easily take advantage of by our wealthier betters.

But now that this is officially and mortally threatening imminent policy, it’s safe to state the obvious. Because of the reason that this is Trump. He has always been obvious. There is no subtlety with the Figurehead.

In fact, the main reason this greedy bastard wanted the honor to represent you, the people is to get out of his documented deep shit debts he has to international banks.

So forget all this nonsense about conflicts of interest, emoluments clauses and his personal tax forms from the past 20 years, including last year, that he refuses to release to the public, his employer, that demands it from him. Forget about his defiant hypocrisy and his gas lighting defense of it. And forget the way he talks to journalists, especially after that maddening interview he gave to the Associated Press that was released on Monday, an interview with audio that is being suppressed by the government we keep running with our tax dollars. And for fucks sake, forget about his stupid twitter social networking defecations.

For with this odious and inherently evil tax plan. Donald J. Trump is now President Of The United States Of America.

Donald Trump was seen patting a Marine on the back after saying goodbye to Argentine President Mauricio Macri and his wife, Juliana Awada. The Marine had tended the limousine doors for the Argentine couple's departure

(You be the judge, this guy is a hipster douche and street stupid)

Requiem For A Public Servant And Death Metal Drummer

https://impunitycity.files.wordpress.com/2017/04/f53a4-firefigher.jpg?w=359&h=439

William Tolley

A firefighter tragically died as the ladder he was on clearing smoke from an apartment building roof in Ridgewood malfunctioned and he fell 5 stories to the ground. This is the second death involving city emergency units, the other being the tragic death caused by a rabid drug fueled thug to courageous EMT worker and single mother Yadira Arroyo.

William Tolley was not only a 12 year veteran of the FDNY, but an accomplished and acclaimed musician of death metal band Internal Bleeding that had fans spanning the world. They have 2 eps and 5 albums, including 2 sensational releases from the past 3 years.

Truly a terrible loss to the community and music world. What music he could have made with his band when he retired, because death metal is the only rock and roll music with any vitality and he surely would have had a full time career fulfilling his talent.

 

 

The Music Industry Is Directly Killing Rock Music

http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/metallica/images/8/8e/Metal_Up_Your_Ass_%28demo%29.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20120607164938

There is something strange going on in the realm of popular music. And it’s not just the dearth of solid albums (except by the two subjects at hand) and well crafted anthemic songs of universal appeal. It’s not even the glaringly and distressingly obvious fact that there isn’t any revolutionary music being made considering the sign of the times under the aegis of HyperNormalisation and the dominance of plutocratic and autocratic leaders, widening economic disparity and the existential threat against knowledge, information and privacy (I’ll get to these later).

Judging by the recent incidents involving two legendary and successful bands spanning 3 and 4 decades, it looks like there is an attempt by the consortium of corporate music distribution and promotion to destroy rock and roll.

Consider the incident at the Coachella Festival last week with headliner Radiohead.

The band was at the end of their song “Ful Stop” when a abrupt “boop” cut the sound off. Members of the band walked off the stage to see what the hell happened. When they followed up with their classic “The National Anthem” the sound crashed again and cut it off mid song and they walked off the stage. After a long delay and some wisecracking and banter by frontman Thom Yorke, the sound came back in the middle of “Street Spirit (Fade Out)”. They followed this fracas with a jokey sluggish rendition of their worst but most popular song “Creep”. The audience, sounding equally stoned and annoyed, cheered on and the show went on.

This got a lot of national news attention for something as seemingly benign as technical difficulties, which isn’t hard because what passes for televised journalism is 60% viral videos. But mishaps like this doesn’t usually happen to big headliners, at least not Radiohead, who I have seen 4 times and they never had these problems with their own shows. They have played this festival and the many other multi-day ones in the past decade surely without a hitch, but there is something about this one that is off-putting. It seems that in spite of their popularity, which has crossed over to a new generation, that the band is being undermined. And it could be because this band’s music delves into myriad issues from politics, love, alienation isolation, music that provokes thought and expression.

And in this era of manufactured consent and content, that is an inconvenient problem for the new powers that be.

Also a threat to said powers is music that is aggressive and just flat out fucking rocks.

Take the peculiar case of Metallica at this years Grammy awards show, and the penultimate disrespect towards them by those in charge.

What was initially confusing and eccentric about this pairing turned into a blatant act of artistic sabotage by the Grammy producers. Everything about this pseudo-inspired duet made no sense, especially from the side of the one time residents of Jamaica, Queens. Metallica weren’t nominated for anything but they recently put out their stunning comeback album a few months earlier. Lady Gaga, despite releasing her pretty good album Joanne was not even nominated either for the worthless dubious award. The only thing that has precedence involving The Fame Monster with offbeat duets was her sensational album with Tony Bennett.

The abomination starts with the tranny actress Laverne Cox from the hyped streaming bingeing show Orange is the New Black, introducing Metallica and Ms. Germanotta without mentioning the band’s name. Giving the audience the ludicrously false impression that a band that has sold over 100 million albums worldwide was her backup group

The song starts, and there are a bunch of extras on the stage and in the crowd assembled below simulating thrashing about and slam dancing, which long time heavy metal DJ Eddie Trunk rightly compared to a scene from the atrocious Broadway musical Rock Of Ages. Then when James starts to sing, there’s nothing for entire verse. Gaga starts singing and is having trouble keeping up with the ferocity and speed of the song, and does ridiculous gyrations all the while. She doesn’t notice James is off until the chorus and winds up sharing her mic with him. It gets even more retarded as when Kirk goes into his blistering solo, the camera remains on Gaga as she does a stage dive into the models in the assembled crowd. It ends with both artists humiliated with James kicking his mic stand and throwing his Gibson Destroyer guitar across the stage in disgust as Lady Gaga crouched by the drumriser like a mental patient.

It should be noted that the band that actually won the Grammy this year was ex-bandmate Dave Mustaine and his band Megadeth, which the producers regaled with by playing Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”

This isn’t the first time Metallica got insulted by the dubious music awards show. When these annual arbiters of musical taste decided to deign to the metal genre by giving them a category in 1989, they had the band show up and perform “one” in it’s entirety, only to give the award to Jethro Tull.

Metallica has been around since 1983, they are arguably the only rock and roll band to release 5 classic albums in a row. They have made a glut of terrible albums and bad judgements over a decade (the Load albums, Diaper and Pant, St Anger, the orchestra album, Lulu) and came back with a phenomenal album that puts today’s crop of snowflake bands to shame. But it may have been too strong, and they are certainly, being in their 50’s, too old.

What makes this almost a conspiracy is the correlation of these disasters since they were ostensibly to promote Lady Gaga, who also happened to be the headliner of the festival the day after Radiohead. Why, especially since her new album is not selling as well like her last proper album and the last hit album she made was old standards with Mr. Bennett.

Add to the fact that the music industry is run by just  3 major labels (and a comparably minor glut of indie labels),  commercial and satellite radio is run by 3 corporations (clear channel, Iheartradio) and festival and individual concert promotion is run by 2 (AEG, Livenation) and that is a disturbing amount of consolidation that you don’t dare offend or mess with the machinations of.

That’s what makes this so fishy. Although this actually may have started in the late 90’s with the boy bands and disney sluts (and is still continuing), recent preventable mishaps like this just seem too timely. And that’s including the Mariah Carey’s New Year’s Eve meltdown. It’s like they don’t want this generation to embrace the legends and want to stifle anything new, steer them to irrelevance and regulate them to the oldies circuit or retirement.

This may be truly the beginning of the end of musical expression or maybe the bastardization of it (check out Zakk Sabbath. yuk). And as mentioned, the lack of protest music, in addition to quality lasting music is distressing. With the exception of death metal, which is limited by indecipherable vocals, there is no loud, fast, aggressive and most importantly passionate music out there to get the kids riled up or even think for themselves, the reality of their surroundings or the state of the nation and the world. Basically, there is no punk music. Or even a rock version of Kendrick Lamar or Run The Jewels.

And the music industry with these recent acts of artistic sabotage, are willfully exacerbating it. And are complicit with the widespread malaise.

What needs to stop the consortium of lame music is a malignant tumor in the form of raging uncompromising rock and roll band or more preferably a metal up the ass to all these promoters, labels and radio stations again. It’s the circle of life after all.

Executive Carnage On The Eve Of 100: Executive Producer In Chief Trump Greets His Cultural Muses

https://i2.wp.com/ll-media.tmz.com/2017/04/20/0420-trump-nugent-twitter-2.jpg

Washington D.C., America

I used to be fans of the Nuge and the Kid. I still adore Tina Fey. Oh wait that’s the repulsive former half-governor/worst vp candidate Sarah Palin.

The most offensive thing about this picture is that Figurehead Trump has now solidified and established my depiction of him by meeting and greeting with supporters instead of conducting crucial foreign policy decisions like the current missile crisis and war ratcheting with North Korea, Syria and Iran, leaving it up to that opportunistic christian hypocrite chump Pence and greedhead redneck Tillerson. This in addition of having 2 tax dollar hemorrhaging easter egg events at the cost of you, the people while Kim Manchild was shooting off missiles and showing war agitprop.

Donald Trump, the elected president, by relinquishing and dispensing his decision making duties and responsibilities to his VP, Secretary Of State, and his generals, is now a de facto executive producer, no different than he was when he still got that credit on the last season of the celebrity apprentice. As he and his third wife, his sons, daughter and son-in-law get to hedonisticaly enjoy the spoils of his entitlement entrusted by you, the people.

To quote Rick James from the writings of the late lamented Charlie Murphy, they never should have given these niggas money.

Just a reminder to all those christians that voted for Don Worthless, this is the company he keeps-
