Nothing burgers for sale – $10 each

A reading of all 448-pages of the Mueller Report is taking place in Queens, New York on Saturday and Sunday.

Isn’t it always the case that we find out about events too late to buy tickets or to cancel other plans?

For example, U2 have just announced an Australian tour but, unfortunately, it’s too late for me to attend as the concerts coincide with a long-planned appointment I have with slamming my cock in a drawer.

But back to the performance art by people who are absolutely sane and in no way caught up in an echo chamber of views;

Beginning on Saturday evening, volunteers will read from the report over 24 hours. Music will play over some of the redacted portions.

Riveting stuff. I bet there won’t be a dry seat in the house.

Ticket sales must be huge, somewhere between the Alien Sex Fiend reunion and “T’Pau’s Greatest Hit rebooted” tour, I imagine.

“The American people paid for the Mueller Report and not a lot of people have read it,” Steven Padla, a member of New Neighbourhood, told Business Insider. “We want it to be heard by as many people as possible.”

“…..not a lot of people have read it”?

It’s not as if there’s a concerted effort to censor it; it’s a free downloadable PDF.

Frankly, if you’ve not had an utter gut full of CNN talking heads trying to find something, anything, of interest in the report for the last few months, can I suggest Rachel Maddow over on MSBC would welcome the extra viewing numbers?

Bill’s Opinion

The Kübler-Ross model is generally accepted as a good indicator of where people suffering from grief and loss are on their journey to some semblance of normality.

The stages are as follows;

  1. Denial
  2. Anger
  3. Bargaining
  4. Depression
  5. Acceptance

It would seem stages (1) and (2) are quite hard to leave for some folks.

  1. Sore Loser Syndrome much? It’s a pity for them that there isn’t an option to take their ball and go home. Disclosure: I’m not a Trump fan, fortunately as it turns out as he goes out of his way to embarrass his supporters.

    1. To say that Trump is a divisive character is the understatement of the century.

      Put simply, he divides people into three camps;
      1. Supporters
      2. Sane non-supporters
      3. The insane

  2. I have always maintained and still do that Muller is in the Trump camp, Trump would like nothing better than the continuous doomed impeachments attempts to persist, even Pelosi knows this now and unsuccessfully tried to shut them down.

    As for your admiration of U2 and Bono, we are on the same page here. Although I recently spent some time in Sarajevo and one of the things that struck me about their siege in the nineties was that it lasted for just under four years, ffs! Anyway I devoted a bit of my time there to better understand the siege and spoke with many that survived it. All of them spoke very highly of Bono, yes he may have being doing it for the fame, but it was very helpful to those in the shit and they thought very highly of him, which was good enough for me. I was making a video of the siege and in the end I done a bootleg of a video that a Bosniac dude made, he gave me permission and due to the length of the siege the video could not be edited any shorter than 9.5mins, I am typically a 90 sec and 180 sec max video guy. I also dubbed the Bono and Pavarotti live performance of Miss Sarajevo over it and the subsequent performance as the soundtrack.

    Just saying.

    1. “…. Muller is in the Trump camp”.

      I’m not saying you’re wrong but for that to be correct you would need have the power of mind reading and for an explanation with many unproven assumptions to be correct.
      You may well be a mind reader but the second point goes against my patented razor.

      Glad to see you’re still alive, by the way. Tim and I were almost about to call the Gold Coast coast guard.

    1. Very nice.
      I’ve just been watching the nutter viking guy’s latest YouTube video sailing solo from Shetland to Faroe…. in min-winter. Brilliant.
      Look him up; No Bullshit Just Sailing is his channel.

      1. I met a mad Danish dude at a concert In Vienna, he reckoned that he was royalty. He probably was, we were talking about empires etc and I mentioned that later in the trip that I was going to Iona and that the Romans never conquered the Scots and he chimed in with they (Vikings) did many a time.

        By the way the Radesky March was huge at the concert everyone was clapping and stamping their feet including the Royalty.

        Will have a squiz at that blokes voyages as well. One last thing on sailing I did a two day trip up and down the old Forth Clyde canal that has reopened and would recommend it plus you can see Antonine wall as well.

        I am now on the Mull to Oban Gerry that has t’internet.
