  1. BEIJING (AP) — China’s government banned effeminate men on TV and told broadcasters Thursday to promote “revolutionary culture,” broadening a campaign to tighten control over business and society and enforce official morality. President Xi Jinping has called for a “national rejuvenation,” with tighter Communist Party control of business, education, culture and religion. Companies and the public are under increasing pressure to align with its vision for a more powerful China and healthier society. Broadcasters must “resolutely put an end to sissy men and other abnormal esthetics,” the National Radio and TV Administration said, using an insulting slang term for effeminate men — “niang pao,” or literally, “girlie guns.” That reflects official concern that Chinese pop stars, influenced by the sleek, fashionable look of some South Korean and Japanese singers and actors, are failing to encourage China’s young men to be masculine enough. https://apnews.com/article/lifestyle-entertainment-business-religion-china-62dda0fc98601dd5afa3aa555a901b3f

  3. some good stuff coming through! thank you all. yes of course Quinn, Dylan and the Irish stuff... he has long talked about his appreciation of Irish ballads, probably made known to him initially by Liam Clancy who he met way back in 1962. Indeed he did say that Liam was the best ballad singer that he has ever heard. Here before the song are bob's comments. So then, how about some Liam stuff. And topically, Clancy singing Restless farewell, Dylan's rewritten version of The Parting Glass.

  4. Well well - Seamus O' Grunt - Irish now ! Why was you hanging around with a band named after a Spanish Ladies Headress ? Anyway this bloke Hansard - can't say I've ever heard of him. The song however I know well after running a Folk 'n' Blues Club for 10 years with an Irishman. I did though recognise one of the punters on stage - Paul Brady - excellent singer and guitarist - from the band Planxty. Here's his rendition of 'Arthur McBride. Not only but also another song by Brady - 'The Lakes of Pontchartrain' - not an Irish song but very popular with Irish folkies. This is a version from the seventies. There is a link with these songs ! Bob Dylan. ! Both these songs Bob has belted out. On You Tube there is an interview with Brady and he tells how he was asked to visit Bob (in London) to teach him the pickin' etc of this song (it's in an open 'G' tuning). Brady obliged and went to see Bob and sorted his finger picking out. listen.

  12. Howard Stern to Joe Rogan: 'A doctor would also give you a vaccine, so why take horse-dewormer?' https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/howard-stern-joe-rogan-covid-vaccine-horse-dewormer-192053902.html On his SiriusXM show, Stern once again addressed"s***heads in our country who won't get vaccinations." He also took a shot at Joe Rogan for taking "horse-dewormer from a doctor" instead of a "cure." Stern went on to address the blowback he received over vaccine comments on last Tuesday's show. "All I said was everyone should get the vaccine, it should be mandatory. This brought down a slew of publicity like I haven't seen ever, it was mind-blowing. I was trying to figure it out, 'Why am I getting so much press for saying this? Is it really so wild?' All I'm doing is speaking common sense," he said. "We have a cure for this dreaded COVID and we're not taking it — take it. Make people take it the same way we take polio vaccines and every other vaccine." Stern said "we have it so good in this country, people forgot about disease" and that there are "cures." "It always wasn't like this. You don't get to live to 80 years old automatically. It's done with science," he added. "The reason we live longer is because of science." The radio host doubled down on his stance that unvaccinated people should be refused treatment at hospitals. "We're trapped in a country with imbeciles," he added. "Guess what? When we get COVID, we don't end up in the hospitals so we don't overload the hospitals. So what did I say? We have no time for idiots in this country anymore. We don't want you. We want you to all, either go to the hospital and stay home, die there with your COVID. Don't take the cure, but don't clog up our hospitals with your covid when you finally get it. Stay home, don't bother with science, it's too late. Go f**** yourself, we just don't have time for you."

  14. Thanks Papa Sam for the cool pics and Mongers Hall of Legends suggestions, Yes they come too late for the 2000 inductions, but they are very timely for the 2021 intake, in regards to which let me recap where we stand: Josh, Nick Jackson and Ernesto are in. Josh was my own ad hoc choice back in March so I could announce and induct him ahead-of-schedule while he was still alive. Nick J and Ernesto were announced, respectively, in this thread and in the "Impromptu Nominations" thread and will be officially inducted towards the end of 2021. Nick J was proposed by PG and I gave it my immediate concurrence and am still wondering why I did not think of it first since I was good pals with him and the Hall of Legends prioritizes departed mongers who are fondly remembered by most in the community. I should have inducted Nick J ahead of Jimbo who got his Hall of Legends wings by carrying on the mini-cabaret concept Nick had pioneered. Ernesto almost made it last year (2020 intake) through the BM popular vote path and he is overdue since he already had legendary status on our Board with his own subforum even before the Clubs and the Hall of Legends existed. When by chance I saw (on one of Ernesto's old TRs) action pics of him with one of the most iconic ladyboys ever in the Philippines who used to be my main squeeze there 11 years ago!, I said it's time to move him up the ranks into the Hall of Legends. I believe Ernesto has the full concurrence of the admins, who have a special say with one of the annual inductees at their choice. To remind: Any BM can nominate another BM here or at PY for the Hall of Legends, and, as far as I've noticed, for 2021 we have a standing nomination by The-Sith for PG (at the top of this page). Not sure if The-Sith was serious, but the nomination stands. We have a quasi-nomination for The-Sith himself when I mentioned it as a matter of time and a couple BMs seemed to like the idea. I would want to see some more explicit BM support for The-Sith to be counted as a 2021 nomination. Now as to your (Papa Sam) nominations: Nick will be inducted in December as per above. Kendo and Scott are unlikely. They are the reason this thread was started. They are legends in their own right but too controversial by their association to the PY regime that has antagonized far too many of their monger peers. They are what I call "legends on the bubble". I would only induct them if there was significant support from LBR BMs, which has not happened. I tried Kendo last year as a matter of due dilligence and he got a couple of Ayes and far more Nays! Not trying it again anytime soon unless circumstances change. Crippsy and David Bonnie I don't know who they are. If Crippsy is Petesie he is in the same situation as Kendo and Scott. Friendly popular monger who unfortunately does the bidding of the thickos who now control PY. Last and foremost: lengcj ! I accept your (Papa Sam's) nomination. He is a bit of a one-trick pony but it's an awesome trick. Not only he has a ladyboy in uniform fetish, but it has to be vintage uniform from the Mao cultural revolution era of the PRC. And it gets even more kinky and specific: it's the engraved BUTTONS on the uniform that he focuses on to ejaculate... I would only like to see him drop by once in a while here at LBR (last log in was 2015!) but at least he is a BM here. Maybe some BM in good standing can PM him at PY and tell him he was nominated to the Hall of Legends and perhaps he will show up again. I would PM him myself but don't want to give the thickos the satisfaction of busting me another account as lengcj fits the profile of the free-monger whose PMs are being read by those who like to stop things... I need 5 Ayes in excess of Nays for lengcj to be inducted into the Hall of Legends? (He already has 2 Ayes from me and Papa Sam...)? Ayes or Nays for lengcj gentlemen please ??? !!! Hope this helps. Please all BMs feel free to participate with nominations and objections... Rom and here is a pic that lengcj might like and that intrigues me: A Thai ladyboy in Thai army combat uniform in what seems to be a military location? Staged or Real ? or is she a GG? not what the caption said...
