Another One Bites the Dust: Twitter Permanently Suspends Notorious Right Wing Bridge Troll James O'Keefe

Thu, 04/15/2021 - 17:26

At long last. He's not really worth a whole lot of attention, but getting permanently suspended by Twitter deserves at least a quick post-it note.

He'll get no career retrospectives from me.

UPDATE at 4/15/21 2:36:11 pm by Charles Johnson

According to an update on a crazed wingnut blog somewhere in cyberspace, O'Keefe may have been given the boot because he was operating fake accounts. Oh yeah, and of course he's threatening to sue Twitter. It's how the wingnuts do.

UPDATE at 4/15/21 2:42:02 pm by Charles Johnson

Another update from Fox News with more details:

A Twitter spokesperson told Fox News that O'Keefe was "permanently suspended for violating the Twitter Rules on platform manipulation and spam."

"As outlined in our policy on platform manipulation and spam, 'You can’t mislead others on Twitter by operating fake accounts,' and 'you can’t artificially amplify or disrupt conversations through the use of multiple accounts.'"

Lyrics
sink into the ground wide and steady while the burning
flickers to a glow out the temple of your ear
while the levy of our predicament’s unyielding -
love come flood through here

in and round the walls of your heavy-minded palace
suddenly the air goes miraculously clear
un-cupping your brim of the never-ending chalice
in rushes love’s atmosphere

body, you’re the bell sounding through the heavy pulling
ringing out a calm from the belly of your sway
all there is to do now is really re-remember
that love is and tune its way

body is your bell sounding through the heavy pulling
ringing out a calm from the belly of your sway
all there is to do now is really re-remember
that love is and tune its way

A Beautiful Acoustic Guitar Piece by Dustin Furlow: "Airborne"

Sun, 04/11/2021 - 13:11

While recognizing my own experiences are comparable to drops in the ocean, “Airborne” is a piece I composed to illustrate the isolation, emotional turbulence and small triumphs I’ve felt since the beginning of the pandemic. Everyone has had an individual journey throughout this time - be it smooth sailing or stormy seas - and I wanted to dedicate this piece to those who have lost loved ones, their livelihood, or been separated from their lovers or families from closed borders.

Big thanks to Matt Thomas for recording, Antoine Dufour for mixing/mastering and Karlijn Langendijk for filming/color grading.

The guitar is a Cedar/Rosewood OM handbuilt by Rebecca Urlacher in Bend, Oregon.

Filming locations include Washington DC, Norfolk, and Amsterdam International Airports as well as the dunes of Castricum, Netherlands

It was a pleasure putting this all together and I’m proud to share it with you all. Let me know what you think and feel free to share this if you enjoyed it.

Tiny Desk Meets SXSW: Steady Holiday

Sat, 04/10/2021 - 22:43

Every year, NPR Music participates in the SXSW music festival, whether it's curating a stage or simply attending hundreds of shows at the annual event in Austin, Texas. Last year, the festival was canceled due to the pandemic, but it returned this March as an online festival. We programmed a 'stage' of Tiny Desk (home) concerts and presented them on the final day of the festival. Now, we present to you Tiny Desk Meets SXSW: four videos filmed in various locations, all of them full of surprises.

Bob Boilen | April 5, 2021
We've posted close to 200 Tiny Desk (home) concerts in this insane pandemic year. Few have made me smile and laugh out loud as much as this one from Steady Holiday. I'll stop with the spoilers now.

Steady Holiday is the music of Dre Babinski. This video, filmed for our virtual SXSW showcase, finds her by the fireplace, a dog at her feet, an acoustic guitar in her arms. Steady Holiday is singing "Living Life," a tune about a favorite topic of mine: the everyday, the mundane, and living in the moment. All the songs in this Tiny Desk (home) concert are from Steady Holiday's 2021 album Take The Corners Gently, a top album of mine this year. Laughing while her dog grabs a chew toy, she performs the album's opening track, "White Walls,", a song about self-reflection and how doing the same thing over and over ("painting white walls white") won't make life better.

As her printer cues the last song, (oops, small spoiler), Steady Holiday takes us out on a lovely tune, "Love Me When I Go To Sleep": "Fragile aren't we, who would guess / Here today, tomorrow's taking bets." Her refrain amplifies that fragility with a reminder to appreciate the gift of life. "Love me when I go to sleep / Love me with no certainty / Love me when I go to sleep."

SET LIST
• "Living Life"
• "Tangerine"
• "White Walls"
• "Love Me When I Go To Sleep"

Lyrics:
i'm in the space force now i'm on my way back home
i've got my cell phone on me so i'm never alone
i heard he hung himself from the bathroom wall
i'm in the space force now so i'm having a ball

i'm in the space force now i got a brand new hat
you used to hold me down just like that
but the flames rose up and took you away
i'm in the space force so it's ok

it may come as no surprise
it may come as no surprise
i'm in the space force now did you get my card
i wrote it to you from the bottom of my heart
i swore i'd always be a friend to you
i'm in the space force now so you know its true

i'm in the space force now i work out all the time
i got my butt to poke out and my teeth to shine
and i'm at the point where i don't give a fuck
i'm in the space force now so you better duck

it may come as no surprise
if you peel away the lies
it may come as no surprise
i'm the lord of the flies

i'm in the space force now i'm out in vietnam
you can really stretch a dollar this place is the bomb
you can do what you want i mean you really can
nothing's off limits in this beautiful land
i'm in the space force now and i'm AOK
i'm walking in circles but i'm on my way
to where all my dreams will come true
i'm in the space force and I love you

it may come as no surprise
when you peel away the lies
it may come as no surprise
i'm the lord of the flies
