The Evidence Laid Out That Joseph Smith was the Founder of Polygamy PART 3 FINAL
F.) Nauvoo ExpositorThe only issue of the Nauvoo Expositor published on June 7th and was a 4 page publication. According to William Law, Smith had made several proposals to Law's wife Jane, under the premise that Jane Law would enter a polyandrous marriage with Smith. Law's wife, Jane, later described Smith's proposals, saying that Smith had "asked her to give him half her love; she was at liberty to keep the other half for her husband." On January 8, 1844, Smith removed Law from the First Presidency. On April 18, 1844, Law and his wife were excommunicated from the church, along with his brother Wilson Law, a brigadier general in the Nauvoo Legion. Also excommunicated were Robert D. Foster and Howard Smith. The publishers of the Expositor were William Law of the First Presidency, and his brother, Brigadier General Wilson Law of the Nauvoo Legion, Charles Ivins, Col. Francis M. Higbee of Nauvoo Legion, and his brother Chauncey L. Higbee, Brothers Robert and Charles Foster. The editor was Sylvester Emmons, a non-Mormon member of the Nauvoo City Council.
  1. front page and their agenda generally
  1. The Specifics in the Expositor
    1. Left hand column. How Joseph carried out a preemptive strike before Foster could testify rather than follow procedure.
    2. 2nd from the left - The Charge
    3. Affidavits of William Law (William Law was formerly a member of the First Presidency and excommunicated on Jan 8th 1844) , Jane Law (William’s Wife), and Austin Cowles
  1. William Clayton’s entry that matched D&C 132: 1-4
  2. William Law's mention "in this world and the world to come" Matches D&C 132:15
  3. Jane Law - she mentions that women who will not permit their husbands to practice the doctrine will be damned D&C 132:52-54 & 62 &63
  4. Austin Cowles - Not only confirms that Fullmer, Johnson, and Allred’s testimony is true but also remembers D&C 132: 26-27 & 38-39
G.) Nauvoo City Council Minutes - June 8th - 11thNauvoo Expositor was published on June 7th 1844
Joseph Smith called an emergency City Council Meeting on June 8th, where "he proceeded to put the Expositor and its editors on trial, as if that body was of a judicial instead of a legislative character." The trial "lasted all of Saturday, June 8, and a part of Monday, June 10." where The Expositor was declared a public nuisance and Smith issued two orders for the Expositor's destruction. City Marshall John P. Greene, accompanied by a posse of several hundred, & carried out the destruction. The members of the Nauvoo municipal government were: Mayor Joseph Smith, Councilor Hyrum Smith, Councilor John Taylor, Councilor Sylvester Emmons, Councilor Jonhnson, Councilor Benjamin Warrington , Councilor Hunter, Alderman Samuel C. Bennett, Alderman Elias Smith
  1. Almost 1 year after the Nauvoo High Council Meeting, shit is hitting the fan and Joseph and Hyrum admit to Hyrum teaching the plural Marriage revelation and try to explain it as only having to do with the past and not present times
  2. Nauvoo Neighbor 19 June 1844 (Juxtaposed to August 13th 1843 Nauvoo High Council)The Nauvoo Neighbor was a weekly newspaper edited and published by Latter Day Saint apostle John Taylor in Nauvoo, Illinois, from 1843 to 1845. While it was not an official publication of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the Neighbor was consistently pro-Mormon and its primary target audience was the Latter Day Saint residents of Nauvoo. When The Wasp ceased publication in April 1843, the Neighbor replaced it as Nauvoo's premier secular newspaper. The first edition of the Nauvoo Neighbor was dated March 3, 1843. The final edition was published on October 29, 1845. Publication ceased when the majority of Latter Day Saints, including Taylor, decided to leave Nauvoo and emigrate to the Salt Lake Valley under the direction of Brigham Young.
  1. Close Up of the pertinent parts of the Nauvoo Neighbor
  2. Councilor Hyrum Smith with Joseph in attendance admits to reading the revelation in the August 1843 High Council Meeting and claims the “revelation was in answer to a question concerning things which transpired in Former Days” and “not present time”
H.) Conclusion: William Marks & Accountability
  1. William Marks
  2. First sentence is best understood as an event that took place formally within church structure rather than a practice being done unofficially in the shadows
  3. Marks while on Emma’s side and against polygamy and inspite of having a perfect chance to denounce Smith’s involvement admits that Smith “had done wrong”
  4. Uses the word Doctrine 3 times
  1. Bubble Image - Recognize that The data shared tonight is numerous and much of it connects to other pieces but very few do so in terms of influence meaning the ability to amend some other piece of evidence. The claim is Brigham Young manipulated the evidence and Joseph never practiced polygamy. It is true that Brigham said and did really unhealthy things. And it is also true that Brigham and the early church has been guilty at times of altering the historical record. Yet there are so many pieces of evidence here that are separate from Brigham’s influence, isolated from being manipulated, and which not only corroborate other parts of the story but also corroborate the overarching narrative that Joseph Smith originated and perpetuated the Doctrine of Polygamy. To argue otherwise one would need to explain the collective evidence shared tonight not only in a way that requires an alternate explanation, but also must do so with less conjecture and inference aka Mental gymnastics). Otherwise the conclusion imposed by us, is the most rational conclusion one can arrive at and those who argue or believe otherwise would need to collectively deal with the repercussions of Joseph Smith not only as a polygamist but of a human who used deeply unhealthy Predatory and manipulative behaviors in order to carry out the practice.


1.) Clayton Journal Entries are reliable
2.) D&C 132 is reliable as the text of the revelation that Smith received
3.) There is substantial Evidence that imposes that Smith originated and perpetuated Polygamy
4.) Hyrum Smith read the revelation in a High Council Meeting and Joseph and Hyrum tried to excuse the revelation away in the Nauvoo City Council but not a the way that allows Polygamy deniers to impose a narrative of "Eternity Only Sealings" or "Dynastic Sealings". Hence they must confront why Hyrum and Joseph don't respond using the narrative they have created.
5.) That any attempt to explain Joseph's practice as "eternal only" and not time is irrational in light of Hyrum and Joseph's attempt to walk back the doctrine/revelation of plural marriage by explaining it was in regards to former times and had nothing to do with the present. In other words Dynastic Sealings or relationships in the hereafter that are not binding or sexual in this life is not going to strike fear and anger and rebelliousness in Emma, along with pushback and resentment in Marks, Cowles, and Soby and can be explained without embarrassment. But when Joseph and Hyrum tip their hand by making the excuse that this revelation is about former times and not the present, we can rationally conclude this wasn't eternal only or dynastic relationships that lacked sex or marriage in this life.(While we didn't show it, Orange Wight's autobiography also imposes that Smith had Flora Woodworth as a wife and he was notified that because of such, she was taken. Hence this wasn't a eternity only relationship.)

2023.06.07 04:58 sleepybullmoose Rearranging Ringer Mock Draft Lottery Picks (Player Comps and Projections)

Methodology: I looked at highlights of every player, glanced at their stats, and noted down the nba player of was reminded of the most when seeing them play.
Ringer Rankings
  1. Victor Wembayama
Worst Case: always injured, Best Case: 7ft 4 Tim Duncan (HOF)
Explanation: Victor has good defensive instincts and offensive skillset. Couple that with his tremendous size, and you get someone who could potentially become GOAT. Only barriers to HOF will be injury.
  1. Brandon Miller
Worst Case: Fringe starter, Best Case: Poor Man's Kevin Durant
Explanation: Great shooting stats in college. Bad defensive stats. Movement reminds me a lot of KD but with worse stats. A big forward with good spacing will at worst be a fringe starter in the NBA. Basically if Jabari Smith was bad at Defense but much better at scoring.
  1. Scoot Henderson
Worst Case: backup pg, Best Case: Westbrook with shot and higher IQ
Explanation: Very explosive, strong body, good handles and footwork. Bad shot, bad defense, and injuries will prevent him from reaching ceiling. Good athleticism and IQ should make him a career backup at worst.
  1. Cam Whitmore
Worst Case: Bust, Best Case: Charles Barkley
Explanation: Plays like a ball handling big man stuck in the body of a wing. Explosive leaper but lacks the effortless of Scoot and the Thompsons. Shooting is supposedly iffy, Barkley-esque in his movements. If his offense does not work out he will struggle to stay in the league given his lackluster defense.
  1. Jarace Walker
Worst Case: Role Player, Best Case: Draymond Green/PJ Tucker
Explanation: Big body but plays under the rim indicating lack of explosiveness. Bad shooting stats. Good feet, will be a defensive specialist. Could stay in the league as situational defense only player. Needs to improve offense if they wish to stay on court. Similar game to Draymond minus the playmaking. DPOY potential if he can find ways to stay on the court.
  1. Amen Thompson
Worst Case: Bust, Best Case: Skinny Zion
Explanation: Very interesting player due to OTE. Amazing athlete, glides effortlessly across the court. I see him more as an undersized point forward than a wing or guard. Body control at rim and explosion is like Zion. Good playmaking but see him more as a secondary facilitator than a primary. If the outside shot never comes through he will have to become a DPOY level player otherwise he will become a bust.
  1. Taylor Hendricks
Worst Case: Role player, Best Case: Better Jonathan Isaac
Explanation: Good shooting stats, good length, and good defensive instincts. Bad ball handling forces him to play the big man role. DPOY potential.
  1. Ausar Thompson
Worst Case: Bust, Best Case: Better Jaylen Brown
Explanation: Better shot than his brother. Less of a guard game. Plays more like a wing. Reminds me of a young Jaylen Brown but more athletic. Shot is still worrisome but supposedly less than Amen's.
  1. Anthony Black
Worst Case: Fringe starter, Best Case: Jason Kidd
Explanation: Surprisingly athletic despite complaints. I see him as a mix between Lonzo and Lamelo. Not the defender that Lonzo is and not the scoreball handler that Lamelo is but somewhere in between. If someone told me that Black was the true third Ball brother (not LiAngelo) I wouldn't really question it. Good size. If he can play defense and he can space, I at worst, see him as a fringe starter.
  1. Cason Wallace
Worst Case: Role player, Best Case: Mini Jimmy Butler
Explanation: Funny enough he has the same wingspan as Jimmy Butler. Cason isn't the most explosive PG but he knows how to make good use of his length a little bit like Jalen Williams. Good defense, scoring potential, and the Kentucky guard stereotype could end up with a solid backup at minimum.
  1. Gradey Dick
Worst Case: Role player, Best Case: Reggie Miller
Explanation: Good body control at rim. Good shooting stats. Looks like he has some ball handling game. Not sure about defense but he at least looks like he will have a solid Nba career at minimum. Plays like a taller player. Given the right opportunity, I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up being one of the best players in this draft.
  1. Derek Lively
Worst Case: Bust, Best Case: Mitchell Robinson
Explanation: Plays a lot like Mitch in his college games. Horrible shooting stats. Defense only bigs aren't as valuable in the league anymore. Could very easily bust out of the league if he gets injured early.
  1. Jalen Hood-Schifino
Worst Case: Role Player, Best Case: Less Athletic Dame with worse shooting
Explanation: Decent athleticism. Good size. Looks like he has potential of driving and finishing, being a secondary playmaker. I see his best case as being a borderline all star.
  1. Keyonte George
Worst Case: Role player, Best Case: Deangelo Russel with better shooting worse playmaking
Explanation: Has that sluggish nonathletic feel to his game. Similar size to Dlo. His shooting form looks better but his stats are worse.
My Ranking:
My ranking of the prospects based on floor
  1. Victor (AllNBA1st/AllDef1st/DPOY)
  2. Scoot (AllNBA1st)
  3. Miller (AllNBA2nd)
  4. Anthony Black (All StaAllDef)
  5. Cason Wallace (All StaAllDef)
  6. Dick (All Star)
  7. Taylor Hendricks (DPOY/AllDef)
  8. Jarace Walker (DPOY/AllDef)
  9. Cam
  10. JHS
  11. Keyonte
  12. Ausar
  13. Amen
  14. Lively
Ranking of prospects based on ceiling
  1. Victor (MVP/HOF)
  2. Amen (MVP/HOF)
  3. Scoot (MVP/HOF)
  4. Cam Whitmore (HOF)
  5. Anthony Black (HOF)
  6. Ausar (HOF)
  7. Miller (HOF)
  8. Dick (AllNBA)
  9. Cason (AllNBA)
  10. Taylor Hendricks (AllNBA)
  11. Jarace (AllNBA)
  12. JHS (AllNBA)
  13. Keyonte (AllStar)
  14. Lively (AllStar)
Admittedly, the floor and ceiling rankings are way too generous and there are probably going to be players drafted after the lottery who will end up better than the ones in the lottery. I would probably drop some of the recruits here out of the lottery.

Some notes:
—The thing I’m most unsure of is what’s gonna happen with Searchlight. Poor Things has a bad release date and looks way too weird, but Next Goal Wins looks too conventional to have a lot of passion and an extremely low nom ceiling. So right now I think Dafoe will have the flashiest role and will get his semi-frequent random nomination (see also him being the only representation for At Eternity’s Gate and The Florida Project) and Waititi will get a sole writing nom for the quirky, crowdpleasing script.
—Based on test screening reactions Mulligan is going lead, but if she’s supporting I think she happens instead of Foster easily.
—I think it’s really likely that Triet gets a Director nomination but I have no idea who to swap out. Maybe Nolan but right now it seems unlikely for Oppenheimer to get 0 ATL nominations.

2023.06.05 00:10 spunchy M&B Lecture 5: The Central Bank as a Clearinghouse

M&B Lecture 5: The Central Bank as a Clearinghouse
For our schedule and links to other discussions, see the Money and Banking 2023 master post.
This is the discussion thread for Economics of Money and Banking Lecture 5: The Central Bank as a Clearinghouse.
The lecture begins our discussion of banking as a payments system. We start with the interconnectedness of bank balance sheets that allow the payment system to operate smoothly. The central bank helps knit the payment system together to approximate the behavior of one big bank. We cover correspondent banking and central bank cooperation.

Part 1: FT: Martin Wolf on QE3

As the press release of the open market committee stated: “If the outlook for the labor market does not improve substantially, the Committee will continue its purchases of agency mortgage-backed securities, undertake additional asset purchases, and employ its other policy tools as appropriate until such improvement is achieved in a context of price stability.” This is also “consistent with its statutory mandate”, to foster “maximum employment and price stability”.
—Bernanke makes a historic choice
How should we understand QE3? The Fed promises to buy MBS, and possibly other assets, at a fixed and steady pace until employment improves. The immediate effect is to absorb such assets from elsewhere in the financial system. This is, in the first instance, a boost to the liquidity of these securities: when a big-time buyer is out there, it will be easier to sell, and knowing that a big-time buyer will continue to be out there, others will be more likely to buy.
— QE3 The Money View
I've added "Builders" to the balance sheet from the blog post to show where the money goes and where the houses come from:
At the highest level, finally, does QE3 get at what is keeping aggregate demand down? If the problem remains, still, overindebted households unwilling to increase their demand for newly produced goods and services, then this liquidity-providing operation will have very little effect. If there is too much debt out there, and it is to be reduced, someone will have to write that debt down against equity. This is not a feature of QE3 as announced.
— QE3 The Money View
The goal was to return to nominal GDP trend, but we were falling further behind.

Part 2: One Big Bank

The payments system functions as if it were operating on the balance sheet of one big bank. Everyone can pay each other using bank deposits as if all bank deposits were equivalent.
The IMF works more like a "pure money" one-big-bank system. Its balance sheet does not expand or contract as countries make payments to one another.
In a "pure money" one-big-bank system, the quantity of money (deposits) doesn't change. Depositors pay each other by assignment, which appears as novation on the balance sheet of the bank: one deposit account takes on liabilities previously held by another:
The Fed works more like a credit system. A "pure credit" one-big-bank system has no reserves. Instead, surplus agents have deposits at the bank, which they hold as assets. Deficit agents have "overdrafts" at the bank, which are their liabilities.
Depositors make payments through the bank. Below is the matrix from the lecture that shows whether the bank's balance sheet expands, contracts, or stays the same size. Payers are on the vertical axis. Payees are on the horizontal axis.
Surplus agents pay each other by assigning deposits. Deficit agents pay each other by novating overdrafts. Deficit agents pay surplus agents by issuance, intermediated by the bank. Surplus agents pay deficit agents by set off, again intermediated by the bank.
This matrix assumes that the bank's balance sheet expands only when necessary. It shrinks whenever possible. Otherwise, everybody could make all payments by issuance, and balance sheets would only ever expand.
The Money Stock
In a footnote to the lecture notes, Perry points out that the elasticity of credit makes it hard to define the size of the money stock.
Note in passing that this way of thinking about the payments system raises deep questions about how properly to measure the money supply.
—Lecture Notes
He provides three options.
  1. The sum of deposits.
  2. The sum of deposits minus overdrafts.
  3. The sum of deposits plus credit limits (the "minus" is a typo in the notes).
The first option is closest to how people usually think about the money supply. But in a world with the possibility for overdrafts, it doesn't measure agents' spending potential.
The second option also doesn't measure people's overall purchasing power. If you're in a pure credit system, deposits and overdrafts exactly net out to zero, but we know there's purchasing power in the system.
The third option reflects the idea that there's more gross purchasing power when people have higher credit limits. But credit limits don't appear on anyone's balance sheet. How do we measure them?
The balance sheets tell the same story regardless of how you define or measure the money stock.

Part 3: Multiple Banks, a challenge

In the real world, the challenge is to knit multiple bank balance sheets together into a single payment system. When deposits move through the banking system, there is a notional flow of reserves behind the scenes.
Notice that reserves move (assignment) along with the deposits (novation). In quadruple-entry accounting, this is a transfer of portfolio. Bank A's balance sheet contracts on both sides while Bank B's balance sheet expandson both sides. In the example above, the consolidated balance sheet of the banking system as a whole remains the same size.
Unlike with one big bank, the reserves matter. The deficit bank can run out of reserves and come up against the settlement constraint. There's more discipline than in a system with one big bank.
Banks run the payments system by expanding and contracting their balance sheets on both sides. The net worth of neither the individual banks nor the banking system as a whole changes as depositors make payments to each other.
If banks refused to run the payment system, it would force depositors to withdraw cash whenever they wanted to make payments.
See the below set of balance sheets.
There are two scenarios here: A and B. Each is a different way for Depositor α at Bank A to pay Depositor γ at Bank B. Both start and end with the same balance-sheet positions.
Scenario A has 5 steps:
  • A1: Bank A exchanges reserves for cash. This is a refinance operation with the central bank's balance sheet (not shown).
  • A2: Depositor α withdraws the cash. This is an asset disintermediation.
  • A3: α pays the cash to γ in payment by assignment.
  • A4: γ deposits the cash into Bank B, which is an asset intermediation.
  • A5: Bank B exchanges the cash back into reserves (deposits at the central bank).
The payment takes place outside the banking system. Whenever depositors are making payments in this way, the reserves are just gone from the system.
It's more convenient for the banks to send the payment directly to the other bank instead of having depositors withdraw their money. This is scenario B.
Making payments directly through account balances reduces the need for depositors to withdraw cash. It allows banks to economize on reserves. Offering demand deposits, therefore, basically forces banks to run the payments system.
When appropriate, we can treat bank deposits as outside asset for our layer of the hierarchy simply by ignoring the balance sheets of the banks.

Part 4: Reading: Charles F. Dunbar

The reading for this Wednesday is a chapter by Charles Dunbar about how the United States checking system worked in the late 19th century before we had a central bank.
Below is a simple representation of payment by check between depositors at two banks at the same level of the hierarchy.

Part 5: Correspondent banking, bilateral balances

A check is an order to pay. Each bank receives orders to pay throughout the day and then nets them out.
After they clear by netting out offsetting promises to pay, the banks could settle the difference by paying in reserves (transfer of portfolio). But it can be more convenient for the banks to have deposit accounts with each other. These are called correspondent balances.
There are two ways to resolve a payment from a bank A customer to a payment to a bank B customer using correspondent balances:
  1. A liability disintermediation that contracts A's balance sheet.
  1. A liability intermediation that expands B's balance sheet.
In practice, there's a hierarchy of banks, and the small country banks will be the ones that hold deposit balances in the bigger city banks. The action will happen on the big bank's balance sheet.
  • Here's Perry's source on bankers' balances by Leonard Lyon Watkins: Bankers' Balances

Part 6: Correspondent banking, system network

Here's a diagram similar to the one Mehrling draws on the board. Money-center Banks A and B have correspondent accounts at New York Bank C. Depositors α and β's banks have correspondent accounts at money-center Bank A. γ's bank has a correspondent account at Bank C, and λ's bank has a correspondent account at Bank B.
There are multiple layers of the correspondent-banking hierarchy. The idea is to economize on reserves. Do as much netting as possible so reserves don't have to flow. Use credit as much as possible so reserves don't have to flow.
Here's what it looks like (notionally) for α to pay λ.
I've arranged the balance sheets so you can see the hierarchy. Each balance sheet uses as reserves deposits in the bank above it.
This flow of reserves is only "notional" because it might be offset with a payment going in the opposite direction. In that case, no reserves will actually flow.
Now imagine that λ has its correspondent account directly at money-center bank B. When α to pays λ, there is a contraction of deposits at an intermediate layer of the hierarchy.
From the perspective of α and λ, it's all the same.
Note that, since the correspondent system is a credit system, we are not constrained by the quantity of gold, only by the various bi-lateral credit limits.
—Lecture Notes
The accumulation of orders to pay throughout the day is not constrained by reserves. Only the final settlement (after netting) is reserve-constrained.

Part 7: Clearinghouse, normal operations

Banks cooperating to form a clearinghouse is an example of the emergence of hierarchy. The banks are installing a layer of the hierarchy above themselves for the purpose of providing elasticity. That elasticity can then propagate further down the hierarchy.
Here are some simple balance sheets showing the New York Clearinghouse Association.
Clearinghouse certificates are notes that stand in for gold. They're not just promises to pay gold. Each note corresponds to gold that's actually held in reserve.
All promised payments are mutual obligations of members of the clearinghouse. The credit of the aggregate is better than the credit of any individual bank.
The clearinghouse is a credit system during the day but a money system when settling at the end of the day.
If a member bank is a net debtor at the end of the day, it has to choose from the following options:
  1. Pay with clearinghouse certificates.
  2. Borrow from another member.
  3. Default.
The second option is what we call a money market. The money market is the market where banks borrow reserves from each other short-term to meet payments deficits. In addition to facilitating the payments system, the money market can also fund longer-term positions that need to be continually rolled over. We'll talk about this more in future lectures.
Here's a book about the history of clearinghouses that Merhling recommends.

Part 8: Clearinghouse, private lender of last resort

In times of stress, when member banks collectively lack sufficient reserves, the members can borrow from the clearinghouse itself. The clearinghouse funds the loan by issuing a clearinghouse loan certificate. Whereas the clearinghouse certificate is directly backed by gold, the clearinghouse loan certificate is backed by the loan instead.
The Clearinghouse is a private lender of last resort.
Clearinghouse loan certificates are like banknotes, but they're issued against member loans rather than the special 2% government bonds. Before 1907, it wasn't clear that they were legal.
Sometimes, it was hard for the clearinghouse to get the loan certificates back because they paid so well.
Here's a paper by the same author as the above book that describes clearinghouse loan certificates in more detail.

Part 9: Central Bank Clearing
Central banking can be understood as nothing more than one step beyond the clearinghouse, a kind of regularization and strengthening of the clearinghouse system that goes the extra step of obliterating the difference between clearinghouse certificates and clearinghouse loan certificates.
—Lecture Notes
In the above set of balance sheets, "money" is an umbrella term for reserves (deposits) and Federal Reserve Notes. It shows that the Fed can support members by lending to them through the discount window (not the same thing as discounting) or by buying assets from their balance sheets (more analogous to discounting).
Today, there are two clearing systems: one public (Fedwire) and one private (CHIPS). CHIPS is the modern version of the NYCA. CHIPS clears first, and then everything settles on Fedwire.

Part 10: Central Bank Cooperation

If someone above you in the hierarchy needs to be paid in reserves (external drain), your choice is to pay up or to default (suspend payments). If someone below you in the hierarchy needs to be paid (internal drain), your liabilities are their reserves. You can expand your balance sheet. No problem.
When you're a central bank and you run out of gold, you suspend specie payments. That's suspending the exchange rate fixed with gold. It suspends the promise that you will maintain the mint par with gold.
Instead of suspending payments, it's possible for all the central banks to expand their balance sheets at the same time when experiencing stress. It's like an international clearinghouse adding elasticity at the top of the system.
In 2012, the five central banks that matter were all expanding their balance sheets together: Fed, ECB, BoE, SNB, and BoJ. Today, Mehrling adds the Bank of Canada to that list and calls them as a group the C6, with the C standing for "central bank."
Please post any questions and comments below. We will have a one-hour live discussion of Lecture 5 and Lecture 6 on Monday, June 5th, at 2:00pm EDT.

2023.06.04 18:30 SteveAndChalamet Books for sale! Hardcover and paperback. $4-$6 each. Will deliver!

Hi! We are raising money for our very sick cat so I'm trying to sell some of my books to the good people of Astoria. (We also have a GoFundMe for him here if anyone is so inclined.)
Delivery or pickup! I'm thinking $6 for each of the hardcovers and $4 for the paperbacks. Happy to give a 20% discount to anyone who buys 5, and willing to go even higher for people who buy more than that. (I'm crossing them off as people claim them, FYI.)
The books are all in good-to-excellent condition. The hardcovers in particular are in great shape. Most have been purchased within the last few years and read only once or not at all. I have included some pictures of them but happy to send more if anyone has questions about a specific book.
I can legit deliver these books to you and will take cash or Venmo. No idea if this will work but willing to do anything for our boy! Please reach out if anything catches your eye.
ETA: I should note that I can only deliver if it's within walking distance of 36 St/28 Ave (so basically Astoria/LIC/Woodside). I don't have an unlimited Metrocard so using public transit wouldn't really be cost-effective unfortunately. But I love to walk and am happy to walk to you if possible!

My fancast
Now that I’ve finished the game here’s my own fan cast of just the Van der Linde gang. And here are a couple of my own opinions on popular fancasts: Tom Hardy is too short to play Arthur, Norman Reedus is too old to play John and same for Clint Eastwood as Hosea. We also don’t need three Walking Dead cast members playing characters (JDM as Dutch, Reedus as John and Lauren Cohan as Abigail). Its cool but personally, I’d like to see some new blood in what could be roles of a lifetime.

2023.06.03 22:17 mdeceiver79 A Green and Pleasant day

A Green and Pleasant day
Today I visited a little town in Yorkshire called Wortley.
We were driving through and decided to look at the graveyard and church, then decided to look at the hall there, expecting it to be the usual aristo/private event bs.
Turns out the place was taken over by a union back in the 50s after the former owner had let it go derelict, the local workers took over the manor and renovated it, doing up the gardens etc turning it into an educational centre and worker run cooperative - attempting to make a "home of the labour movement".
I can't describe the pride, hope and inspiration I felt upon learning workers had done that, entry to the garden was free, parking was free, the food and services are comparatively affordable, lovely gardens etc - all because profits arent stolen by parasitic lords and are instead reinvested in improving the place.
The walled garden there is also open to community projects, open to the public and they grow food for the restaurant. Visiting that place is the first time things have felt green a pleasant in a long time for me. It's a nice day but it's also a monument to what can be done when people get together, how things could have been or could be.
I'd recommend it to anybody nearby if they fancy a nice day out - also very cheap for stuff like weddings. The graveyard in town is lovely too.

2023.06.01 06:51 dayfirstblogs Released in 1941

Released in 1941, "Citizen Kane" stands as a landmark in film history, revered as one of the greatest movies ever made. Directed by Orson Welles, who also co-wrote and starred in the film, "Citizen Kane" broke new ground with its innovative storytelling techniques, visual aesthetics, and thought-provoking themes. In this article, we will explore the enduring legacy of "Citizen Kane," its impact on cinema, its narrative brilliance, and its contribution to the art of filmmaking.

  1. Context and Production: To understand the significance of "Citizen Kane," it is essential to delve into its historical context and production. Orson Welles, a young and ambitious filmmaker, was given unprecedented creative control by RKO Pictures to bring his vision to life. This creative freedom allowed Welles to experiment with unconventional techniques and storytelling approaches, resulting in a film that challenged traditional cinematic norms.
  2. Narrative Structure and Themes : "Citizen Kane" is renowned for its non-linear narrative structure, which recounts the life of Charles Foster Kane, a newspaper magnate, through a series of fragmented flashbacks and multiple perspectives. This narrative technique not only serves as a mystery surrounding the enigmatic character but also explores the subjective nature of truth and the complexity of human memory.
The film touches upon various themes, including the pursuit of power, the corrupting influence of wealth, the loss of innocence, and the emptiness of material possessions. Through the character of Kane, "Citizen Kane" examines the limitations of wealth and the ultimate loneliness that can accompany success.
  1. Visual and Technical Innovations: "Citizen Kane" revolutionized the visual language of cinema through its groundbreaking cinematography, inventive camera movements, and innovative use of lighting and deep focus. Welles, along with cinematographer Gregg Toland, employed low-angle shots, deep focus shots, and striking visual compositions to heighten the emotional impact of the story and create a sense of depth and complexity.
The film's technical achievements extended to its sound design, editing, and production design. From the innovative use of overlapping dialogue to the seamless transitions between scenes, "Citizen Kane" showcased meticulous attention to detail and advanced filmmaking techniques that were ahead of its time.
  1. Performance and Character Study: Orson Welles delivered a remarkable performance as Charles Foster Kane, capturing the essence of a complex and larger-than-life character. His portrayal effortlessly navigated the various stages of Kane's life, showcasing his charisma, ambition, and eventual downfall. The ensemble cast, including Joseph Cotten, Dorothy Comingore, and Agnes Moorehead, contributed equally compelling performances, breathing life into the supporting characters that orbit Kane's tumultuous life.
  2. Critical Reception and Legacy: Upon its release, "Citizen Kane" received critical acclaim for its technical achievements, narrative innovation, and Welles' commanding performance. However, its initial box office success was modest. Over time, the film gained recognition as a cinematic masterpiece and became a staple in film education.
The enduring legacy of "Citizen Kane" can be seen in its influence on subsequent filmmakers and films. Its impact on visual storytelling, narrative structure, and thematic exploration can be felt in movies across various genres. The film's critical examination of power, media manipulation, and the complexity of human nature continues to resonate with audiences to this day.
Conclusion: "Citizen Kane" remains an enduring masterpiece that revolutionized the art of filmmaking. Orson Welles' audacious approach to storytelling, technical innovation, and thought-provoking themes have solidified the film's place in cinematic

2023.06.01 06:00 Analypiss Respect Juggernaut! (Marvel, 616)

Respect Juggernaut

This won’t hurt me! Nothing can!
Cain Marko was the son of nuclear scientist Kurt Marko, who worked in Alamogordo, New Mexico with Brian Xavier. After Brian died in a lab accident, Kurt married Brian’s widow Sharon for her family’s money, resulting in Cain becoming the stepbrother of the Xavier’s son Charles, the eventual founder of the X-Men. Kurt proved to be an abusive father to both Cain and Charles, which combined with Cain’s jealousy over his brother’s telepathy, fostered a lasting resentment between the two of them. After Kurt died saving them from another lab accident, Charles and Cain would end up serving with the army together in Korea. During their service, Cain would stumble across a cave that had a temple dedicated to the powerful mystic being known as Cyttorak. Touching a crimson gem at the heart of the temple, Cain was transformed into Cyttorak’s avatar on Earth, an unstoppable human Juggernaut. Shortly after, the cave collapsed, with Xavier barely managing to escape. Years later Cain would dig his way out and seek revenge on Charles for the perceived slights he had inflicted upon him. In doing so, Cain would come into conflict with the X-Men, Hulk, Spider-Man, Thor, Doctor Strange, and many other superheroes before eventually burying the hatchet with his brother. However, despite joining the X-Men and later Thunderbolts, Cain would return to being a villain each time. Throughout his life and various goals and motivations, only one constant has remained for Cain Marko. No matter the obstacle, he will never stop.
