My pitch on $VLRS, best value investment I’ve ever found, once in a cycle opportunity - coming from a former airlines analyst at a top 5 hedge fund

2020.09.05 23:34 Emerld33 My pitch on $VLRS, best value investment I’ve ever found, once in a cycle opportunity - coming from a former airlines analyst at a top 5 hedge fund

Thesis: VLRS is an underfollowed and catalyst-rich potential 10-bagger IF you can swallow the fact that its a levered Mexican airline. A best-in-class operator pre-crisis, VLRS is an immediate and long-term COVID beneficiary that has already doubled market share and almost recovered 2019 traffic levels as primary competitors collapse, creating a sustainable dominant position.
Description: VLRS is an ultra-low-cost Mexican airline serving domestic (~70%) and international, mostly US transborder destinations (~30%) with a focus VFR (visiting family and relatives) traffic (45%) and price sensitive leisure travelers (30%). Volaris is a best-in-class ULCC, the largest airline in Mexico and the largest ULCC in Latin America, with the 2nd lowest unit costs in the world.
Valuation: Our 2026 price target is MXN204/sh (USD$95/ADR), roughly 10x upside - based on a typical high-quality ULCC forward P/E multiple of 14x on FY27 EPS of MXN14. From 2019 through 2027 we expect an ASM CAGR of 10.6%, RASM CAGR of 1% (reflecting depressed pre-COVID environment and ancillary execution), CASM @ -1.5% (reflecting fleet transition and pre-COVID fuel prices).
Market Dislocation: 1.) Hairy, foreign listed small-cap airline and trades only 3m USD / day - high discoverability 2.) Poor sell-side coverage - despite significant interim newsflow, including the almost-complete recovery of volumes to pre-COVID levels, US sell-side coverage has not updated models since July. For example, current consensus capacity for 3Q reflects roughly 4,122k ASMs vs. 4,800 based on actuals through Aug and mgmts stated planes for Sep 3.) Sellside and buyside always fails to model the impact of upgauging and fuel efficiency during significant fleet transitions - many sellside models either don't model the fleet or actually apply the wrong number of seats entirely, underestimating growth implied and incremental costs associated 4.) Market anchors to minimum contractual fleet without consideration of significant ability to extend leases or pull forward deliveries if the recovery remains strong, especially if additional capital is raised 5.) IFRS 15 and 16 changes make spot check comparisons messy and the capital structure look worse than reality 6.) Persistent overcapacity in recent years is not reflective of earnings power in a more consolidated market. In 2019, Interjet was discounting aggressively to generate cash in an effort to maintain solvency which depressed fares below rational levels
Key Investment Factors:
1.) Accelerating secular growth of Mexican aviation demand – From 2007 to 2018 air trips per capita in Mexico has grown from 0.25 to 0.36 compared to 0.72 for Chile and 0.45 for Brazil. Since VLRS’s founding in 2006, the domestic market has grown at a CAGR of 7.6%, international market at 4.9% (US transborder >20%) and total Mexican market 6.2%. Mexico’s demographics are supportive, with a young population and an emerging middle class expected to comprise 50% of the population by 2032
2.) Bus switching presents a long runway for sustained growth – Mexico’s inter-city bus market is 70x the size of the air market (>3bn bus pax vs. 54m air pax in 2019). 41% of VLRS’s routes pre-COVID had only bus competition and VLRS sees buses as the primarily competitor and source of growth. Amazingly, VLRS flights are actually cheaper in many cases than the competing bus trips and VLRS runs ticket giveaways at bus stations to convert first time flyers. First time flyers comprised 6% of 2019 passengers and 82% of passengers surveyed would not travel by bus again. COVID has pulled forward bus switching given the difference in trip duration.
3.) Market share gains from 30%+ reduction of domestic capacity and collapse of primary competitors – a. VLRS has captured ~50% of the growth in the domestic market since its founding and has grown from a 4% in 2006 share to 31.1% in 2019. In July, VLRS held 45% share of the domestic market which is sustainable and could grow further. b. Aeromexico’s domestic market share has shrunk from 40% in 2011 to 24% in 2019 as the legacy carrier has basically ceded the domestic market to ULCCs and runs it primarily to feed international travel. Aeromexico is currently in chapter 11 and is expected to reduce its fleet by at least 30%. c. Interjet (19.7% 2019 domestic share) is the 3rd largest ULCC, but is the most important competitor to VLRS since they share Toluca as their main hubs and since Interjet has been aggressively discounting since 2018 in order to manage solvency issues. 60 of Interjet’s 66 planes have been repossessed leaving them with a ragtag fleet of six barely operable Russian Sukhoi Superjets. d. Viva Aerobus is another ULCC with 20.2% of the market in 2019, through Viva tends to stay in its lane geographically and focus in different airports than Volaris. Viva will definitely be looking to take their slice of Interjet’s and Aeromexico’s forfeited routes and slots, though its unlikely they’d be overaggressive with VLRS in an environment of massive undersupply
4.) Expanding and sustainable cost advantage embedded in underappreciated fleet transition – VLRS has the second lowest unit cost in the world and has a RASM lower than Aeromexico’s CASM. Airbus NEO (new engine option) are roughly 10% cheaper on a unit cost basis, driven by fuel efficiency (-14% to -16% fuel burn per seat) and increased gauge (operating leverage on per-departure and per aircraft costs like pilot wages, landing fees, etc.). NEO aircraft currently make up 30% of seats in the fleet and the latest fleetplan has that growing to ~60% by 2023 (and >90% by 2026 depending on lease extensions and deferrals), Overall this translates to a ~1% embedded annual reduction in CASM through 2026 assuming no other other cost improvements off of 2019. Said differently, we expect VLRS’s average seats per aircraft to grow from 185 today to 198 by 2026.
5.) Upside from price and/or fleet flexibility – VLRS has pushed out 24 neo deliveries from 2020-2022 to 2027-2028 in order to save USD$200m of predelivery payments – if demand recovers more quickly VRLS could reaccelerate those orders and grow the fleet 20%+ in the next three years. VLRS has historically also extended leases beyond the contractual redelivery date, though the published fleet plan only reflects contractual deliveries and redeliveries. VLRS remains nimble and able to accelerate growth and take share if demand is strong or to recover pricing and build cash
6.) Ancillary revenue upside – since 2011 non-ticket revenue per passenger has grown at a ~19% CAGR, and remains below comparable global ULCC peers in absolute value and % of revenue. We’d expect this to grow per management’s comments and historical execution, as well as supportive baggage attach rate data through July
7.) Additional growth opportunities from newly-freed slots in previously capacity-constrained Mexico City and expansion into Central America – Historically capacity constrained Mexico City airport has use-it-or-lose-it rules and given the fleet outlook, the incumbents (Aeromexico and Interjet) look as if they will finally lose it, opening the door for VLRS to land-grab valuable slots. VLRS is in the early stages of ramping up subsidiaries in Costa Rica and El Salvador, both of which are high-priced markets with limited ULCCs penetration and significant growth opportunities (watch out CPA)
Risks/Mitigants: 1.) Travel recovery - globally, passenger travel has been slow to recover, with some suggesting a structurally lower level of travel as the "new normal". VLRS carries primarily VFR and leisure traffic which is more resilient and quicker to recover than corporate travel, but of course the future is unknown and a second shutdown could increase the risk of a dilutive issuance.
2.) Liquidity - while VLRS is net-positive cash ex-leases and has executed a substantial and impressive liquidity preservation plan (see 2Q20 call and latest investor pres), a second shutdown VLRS would potentially require a further deferral of deliveries, limiting VLRS’s ability to fully capitalize on the opportunity market share opportunity. The company said on the 2Q20 call they expect 40-45m USD of monthly cash burn in 3Q20 and that all incremental capacity decisions would be made on the basis of incremental cash contributions - given the capacity recovery since the call we expect the 3Q20 exit rate to be much lower. VLRS is a critical customer to airbus, airports and other suppliers and we would expect further deferrals or negotiations to be successful if travel deteriorates from here
3.) Potential equity or convert issuance - The board has convened an Extraordinary Assembly for 9/18/20 at which they're expected to propose an issuance of debt, converts or shares. The uncertainty creates an overhang, but we believe it is more likely driven by a desire to re-establish a more aggressive fleet plan that was tempered in the depth of the crisis. We would expect that senior debt markets remain open to VLRS.
4.) Uncertain overhang from extended booking period - VLRS extended their booking period out to Oct 2021 and offered 125% flight credits for customers willing to re-book which could be an overhang on unit revenue through 2021, though the does maximize volumes on which to earn ancillary revenue and maximized aircraft utilization. This was a wise move by mgmt to minimize cash outflows from refunds, but with air traffic liability greater than 1/2 of available cash, a second shutdown could reintroduce liquidity risk or extend fare weakness a few quarters into the recover (though we’d expect this to be made up with close in pricing if travel surprises to the upside)
5.) General FX and macro related to Mexico
Catalysts: 1.) Consistently improving monthly traffic reports and 3Q earnings to drive positive earnings revisions even if general air traffic recovery is weak 2.) Earnings power in the post-COVID competitive environment to become clear 3.) Removal of overhang form potential capital raise following 9/18 board meeting 4.) Further clarification of Viva and Aeromexico's post-COVID fleet outlooks 5.) Re-launch of Central American expansion and reintroduction of use-it-or-lose provisions in Mexico City, forcing the expected official forfeit by peers of slots temporarily granted to VLRS
Management/Holders highlights: 1.) Indigo Partners/Bill Franke: Volaris is backed (15% current stake) by budget-airline guru Bill Franke's firm Indigo Partners, which also has stakes in Eastern-European carrier Wizz (another write-up to follow), Chile's Jetsmart and Frontier (with which Volaris has recently introduced a codeshare agreement with). Collectively, Indigo has an orderbook of 636 Airbus A320-family neo and XLR aircraft. Bill Franke is the former CEO of America West, Chairman of Wizz and Frontier. Indigo also launched and has since exited Spirit Airlines and Singapore's Tiger Air. Doug Parker (AAL CEO) and Scott Kirby (UAL CEO) are among the airline industry leaders originally hired by Bill Franke to America West. Other notable founding Volaris investors include Harry Krensky’s Discovery Americas (current stake 2.41%), as well as Latin American business giants Carlos Slim, Emilio Azcárraga (Televisa) and Roberto Kriete (TACA) (current stake 7.6%).
2.) CEO Enrique Beltranena (0.9% holder) has been an aviation fanatic since 8 years old and joined the industry with his home country of Guatemala’s Aviateca during privatization in 1988. He became general manager of the Aviateca and was responsible for its merger with, Sahsa, Nica, Lacsa and TACA Peru, forming a Grupo TACA and later serving as COO for the group. In 2003 the TACA boarded asked Beltrarena to develop plans for interconnecting airlines in Latin America – one of the six resulting plans was Volaris. In 2005, Beltranena left the 6,800-employee Grupo TACA founded with Volaris
3.) Enrique is supported by EVP Holger Blankenstein since VLRS’s founding, former Bain consultant who heads VLRS’s data-intensive approach to everything from network, fares, marketing and labor

I posted letter R on July 29, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/i0aqxd/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_the_letter_r_in_jeffrey/)
I have bolded some of the more interesting connections and information, but there could be much more that I overlooked. I hope something here strikes an interest in someone and maybe we can get more investigations out of this. Please, if you know anything more about any of these people than what is presented here, post below. I am working off of the unredacted black book found here: https://www.coreysdigs.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Jeffrey-Epsteins-Little-Black-Book-unredacted.pdf
S
Sacco, Amy: Nightclub mastermind behind Bungalow 8 and many other clubs. Listing her list of connections would take too long because her clubs are always hot spots for celebrities and the elite. The NY Times wrote a decent article (https://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/14/fashion/the-empress-is-in-amy-sacco-holds-court-at-another-new-york-nightspot.html) about Sacco’s clubs and clientele. Sacco has been photographed with Ghislaine, India Hicks, and Sophie Dahl, all of whom appear in Epstein’s black book (https://www.patrickmcmullan.com/photo/1563479).
Sachs, Jeffrey: Naming all of his titles would be an endeavor in itself. Sachs is a very influential figure who is best known for being an economist, an adviser to the United Nations, and a University Professor at Columbia University. Sachs serves on the Council on Foreign Relations, where Epstein served from 1995-2009. It is unclear whether he was there at the same time as Epstein, although given his popularity and influence, especially in the early 2000s, I would be surprised if he wasn’t around then.
Saffra, Edmund: Billionaire banker and alleged money launderer with tons of enemies who died under very mysterious circumstances in 1999. The official story was that one of his nurses - in an attempt to gain favor with Safra by saving him from danger - intentionally started a small fire in Safra’s home, which soon spiraled out of control, causing Safra to lock himself in the bathroom and suffocate to death. This article (https://www.vanityfair.com/culture/2000/12/dunne200012) does a good job of pointing out that Safra had many enemies, was a shady character, and was absolutely obsessed with security for himself and his family. It seems odd that Safra would allow his security detail (Mossad vets) to leave his home that night. This article (https://www.theguardian.com/theobserve2000/oct/29/features.magazine47) from The Guardian includes a statement from Ted Maher’s (the nurse who was convicted of starting the fire) wife, stating that he was coerced into signing a confession. Elie Wiesel, the author of Night who is also listed in Epstein’s contacts, was a good friend of Safra’s.
Safro, Wayne: Financial advisor.
Said, Wafic: Financier and businessman. Said is the Chairman of a children’s charity called the Said Foundation, where Prince Charles’s former private secretary, Sir Michael Peat GVCO, serves on the board of trustees (https://www.saidfoundation.org/pages/33-trustees-and-staff). The charity helps underprivileged children from the Middle East. Said has also contributed a lot of money to Prince Charles’s The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Fund, which, among other things, is dedicated to helping children.
Sainsbury, Mr Jamie: Descendant of the founder of the Sainsbury grocery chain. Old friend of Ghislaine Maxwell (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8466853/What-girls-frolicked-Bullingdon-boys-Oxfords-brightest-young-women-rose-top.html). James’s sister, Camilla, was married to British MP, Shaun Woodward, for 28 years. Camilla and Shaun are Trustees of The Woodward Charitable Trust, which helps disadvantaged children, women, and families (http://woodwardcharitabletrust.org.uk/portfolio/about_us/).
Salama, Eric: Former CEO of Kantar consulting firm. Also served as a Trustee for the British Museum (2000-2008). Survived a carjacking after getting stabbed last year (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6618395/Government-adviser-stabbed-carjacking-reveals-fine-punctured-lung.html).
Saltzman, Elizabeth: Contributing editor to Vanity Fair and Vogue, two of the three publications (along with Tatler) that continuously show up among Epstein’s contacts. Saltzman is also a celebrity fashion stylist with clients such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Saoirse Ronan, Stella McCartney, and Uma Thurman, the ex-wife of Arpad Busson, who is possibly one of the key players in this pedophile ring (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/cl34ju/arpad_busson_billionaire_businessman_or_possible/). Andre Balazs, the hotelier who also seems to be embroiled in this whole fiasco held a party in 1995. Those in attendance included Ghislaine Maxwell, Katie Ford, and Elizabeth Saltzman (https://www.nydailynews.com/archives/gossip/taming-liz-fortensky-rumors-article-1.686445), all of whom appear in Epstein’s black book. In fact, Saltzman is a long-time friend of Ghislaine (https://www.mintpressnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/Mysterious-business-of-the-queen-of-NY-Lon-1.pdf). This article also reveals that Ghislaine was introduced to Prince Andrew by the Duchess of York (Sarah Ferguson), and, even more telling, that Epstein was suspected of having Mossad ties when the article was written in 2000. In addition to all this, Saltzman is the ex-wife of hedge fund billionaire Glenn Dubin (https://www.nytimes.com/1987/09/14/style/miss-saltzman-editor-is-wed-to-glenn-dubin.html), one of the most heavily implicated people in Epstein’s pedophilia and child trafficking ring. I implore you to read more about Dubin (and his wife) in my D-F black book thread (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hlrba8/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_df_in_jeffrey/). Saltzman can also be seen here, sitting next to Prince Andrew in 2010 (https://www.grandforksherald.com/news/world/4780114-Britains-Prince-Andrew-is-stepping-back-from-public-duties-after-Epstein-controversy). The lists of celebrities and well-known figures that Saltzman has been photographed with is unending.
Samuels, Mia: Actually Maia Samuel, former Producer of ABC Primetime (1989-1994). Went on to work for NBC, Bloomberg, and CNBC in various producer roles over the years. Now works as Director, Content Studios for Reuters (https://www.linkedin.com/in/maia-samuel-92172a10). Epstein has quite a few television ties, most notably to ABC news programs.
Sandelman, Jon & Corrie: Jonathan is a hedge fund manager and former Managing Director of Bank of America Securities. Corrie is his wife.
Sangster, Guy & Fi: Son of racing tycoon Robert Sangster, Guy is Managing Director at Sangster Group, which is involved in the Horse Racing industry. He also works as an investment adviser with Hambro Perks, a venture capitalist company. Prince Andrew is a close friend of Guy and his wife, Fiona. Prince Andrew even attended Sangster’s 40th birthday party (https://www.the-sun.com/news/136709/prince-andrews-pals-claims-witness-who-saw-him-with-sex-slave-is-confused-as-he-was-in-club-3-days-late).
Sangster, Mr Ben: Guy Sangster’s brother and fellow racing heir. Long-time acquaintance/friend(?) of the Royal Family. According to this article, the Sangsters are “one of the most high profile society families in London and often hang out with the royals (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5008073/Robert-Sangster-s-son-marries-Princess-Eugenie-s-friend.html).
Santo Domingo, Julio Mario: Unsure if this is the father or the son. Either way, this is a billionaire Colombian businessman whose company has controlling stock in Bavaria Brewery and is the 2nd highest stockholder of Anheuser Busch (15%). The senior Julio Mario Santo Domingo died in 2011. His son died from cancer in 2009.
Santo, Mr & Mrs M Espirito: Likely the former owners (or high-ranking family) of the Espirito Santo banking dynasty., which was forced to shutter due to charges of fraud, money laundering, and falsifying documents (https://www.cnbc.com/2014/07/30/how-a-portuguese-banking-mess-took-down-a-dynasty.html). Banco Espirito Santo was Portugal’s second-largest bank.
Saud Prince Solman: Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was a close friend of Epstein’s and met with him many times. Epstein even had a photograph of bin Salman hanging on his wall. The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia has been linked to the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi dissident who was lured to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and subsequently killed. The Crown Prince, said to have ordered the murder, and those who were physically involved with the murder, ultimately went unpunished. According to this article (https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/jeffrey-epstein-what-we-know-about-paedophile-businessmans-ties-middle-east), the numbers listed likely belong to the Crown Prince’s father, King Salman bin Abdulaziz, Prime Minister of Saudi Arabia. Epstein’s Austrian passport had a fake name and Saudi address. This passport was to have been given to him by “a friend.” In November 2016, one day before the election, Epstein flew to Riyadh. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Amazon owner Jeff Bezos were in Riyadh at the same time, leading some to believe that the three may have met up (https://www.insider.com/epstein-riyadh-saudi-arabia-private-jet-2019-9).
Scerbo, Randall: A female (despite the name) fashion stylist and costume designer who eventually went into consulting. Randall also has credits as a producer and content creator for the Miss USA and Miss Universe beauty pageants.
Schiatti, Gianmarco: Creative director who helped several fashion companies (Gucci, Chanel, Coach, Ralph Lauren, Prada, etc.) with rebranding.
Schifter, Helen & Tim: Helen is a former arbitrage trader on Wall Street, as well as a socialite and a former editor at Hearst and Conde Nast (publisher of Tatler and Vogue), making this the 9000th Epstein-Conde Nast connection. Helen’s father is a businessman and has served as a consultant for the Du Pont Company. She runs in the same circles as Ghislaine Maxwell and has been at several of the same parties (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/helen-lee-schifter-ghislaine-maxwell-teddy-wong-and-news-photo/1169681659). Tim is CEO of LeSportsac, the luggage and tote bag manufacturer. Tim can be seen attending a Private Screening with Ghislaine Maxwell here (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/tim-schifter-and-ghislaine-maxwell-attend-private-screening-news-photo/590659962).
Sebag Montefiore Simon & Santa: Simon Montefiore is a British historian, television presenter, and author of history books and novels. Ghislaine attended the launch of Montefiore’s book, “The Court of the Red Tsar” (https://deepclips.com/clip/3225/exclusive-i-fear-i-saw-virginia-roberts-inside-jeffrey-epstein-s-creepy-new-mexico-ranch-contractor-claims). Santa is his wife and sister of Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, who died of an ulcer in 2017. The Palmer-Tomkinson family is so close with the Royal Family that Prince Charles was named Tara’s godfather. As such, Simon and Santa are good friends of Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/4721868/The-lit-girl.html). Simon’s great-great-uncle was an international financier who worked for the Rothschilds in the 1800s. Siimon and his family are still close to the Rothschilds to this day (https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2008/01/montefiore200801).
Seitern, Christine: Architect.
Sejournet, Isabel de: Belgian arts consultant and wife of French Count Eric d’Hauteville. Isabelle was photographed at an annual charity dinner hosted by The AEM Association Children of the World for Rwanda (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/isabelle-de-sejournet-and-caroline-sarkozy-attend-the-news-photo/157832558).
Shabtai, Benny: Israeli businessman who specializes in watches and telecommunications. Served as Chair for Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) and has helped raise millions for the charity (https://electronicintifada.net/content/manhattans-friends-israel-defense-forces/5526). Epstein toured Israeli military bases with Shabtai in 2008 after being convicted of procuring an underage girl for prostitution (https://pagesix.com/2008/04/24/just-visiting/). Shabtai also served three years in the Israeli army and is a former bodyguard for the Israeli ambassador in Paris, France.
Shad, Brenda: Lingerie model who has known Epstein since the ‘90s (https://www.reddit.com/EpsteinAndFriends/comments/hbiwye/epstein_with_lingerie_model_brenda_schad_in_1997/). Almost married Robert Hanson (listed in my Epstein G-H thread) in 1996, the billionaire financier who was accused of raping Anouska de Georgiou when she was a teenager. She first met him when he was dating Naomi Campbell. Pictured with Maxwell here in 2005 (https://www.the-sun.com/news/103520/is-jeffrey-epsteins-unholy-alliance-with-the-victorias-secret-boss-the-real-reason-the-show-was-scrapped/).
Shearer Andre & Angie: Andre is a South African wine importer through his business, Cape Classics. Angie is his wife.
Shore Chris and Maura: Chris is a bankruptcy litigator. Mara is his wife, a licensed lawyer.
Shriver, Bobby: Nephew of JFK, RFK, and Ted Kennedy. His mother, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, founded the Special Olympics. Bobby now serves on the Board of Directors for the Special Olympics (https://www.specialolympics.org/about/board-of-directors/bobby-shriver).

Shuster, Susie: Suzy is a sportscaster who is married to long-time ESPN and NFL Network anchor, Rich Eisen.
Siegal, Peggy: Famous NYC publicist and close friend of Epstein who helped him out by continuously getting him into elite parties even after he was convicted of procuring an underage girl for prostitution in 2008 (https://nymag.com/intelligence2019/07/jeffrey-epstein-high-society-contacts.html). Her career in Hollywood has been obliterated, although many still secretly think she has been a scapegoat (https://www.townandcountrymag.com/society/money-and-powea29643007/peggy-siegal-jeffrey-epstein-connection/), which once again proves the depravity of Hollywood.
Siegel, William (Bill): President of Chris-Craft Industries (1996-2001), a broadcasting company that owned several television channels across the U.S. Chris-Craft was eventually purchased by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation for $5.3 billion.
Sieghart, William: British entrepreneur and publisher. In 1986, he co-founded Forward Publishing with partner Neil Mendoza, who serves on the board of several children’s charities and is the current Provost of Oriel College. Mendoza appeared earlier in Epstein’s black book. Check out the letter ‘M’ thread for more information.

Co-founder of pro-Israeli organization, One Jerusalem, which organized a rally in 2001 to protest Palestinian sovereignty. Flipped political affiliations to vote for George W. Bush post-9/11. As a result, Bush appointed him to several posts, including one in which he worked under Scooter Libby, adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney.
Silverman, Nancy & Henry: Henry is an entrepreneur and private equity investor. Henry helped build Cendant Corporation, which specializes in car rentals, travel reservations, and real estate brokerage services. Nancy and Henry divorced in 2012 after 30 years of marriage. They literally lived around the block from Jeffrey Epstein.
Simon, Bren: Bren was the President of MBS Associates, a property management company. She and her husband (now deceased), support many children’s charities. Bren directs the Mel and Bren Simon Charitable Trust, which works closely with the Clinton Foundation (Haiti), the Clinton Global Initiative, and the Clinton School of Public Service (https://brensimon.com/our-work/).

In 1998, Bren began working with the Mission International Rescue Foundation (MIR), which serves the children and young women of La Romana, Dominican Republic. Bren also created the Centro de Promocion Rural Max Simon, an orphanage that provides a safe environment for boys who have been abandoned, abused, or are living in extreme poverty. She also created the Bren Simon MIR Foundation Girls’ Vocational School (https://cancer.iu.edu/giving/simon/bren-bio.php).

In 2007, Rena attended a party for Allegra Hicks at Ghislaine Maxwell’s house (https://medium.com/@the_war_economy/investigation-jeffrey-epstein-d2ad68e2e845). Her husband, Sami, is a venture capitalist.
Slayton, Bobby: Actocomedian who admits to seeing Epstein in West Palm Beach a few times over the years. Slayton says that “they weren’t friends,” although he once went to Epstein’s Manhattan mansion for coffee (https://www.miamiherald.com/news/state/florida/article234312632.html).
Smith Osborne: Not enough info.
Smith Peterson, Noona: Public relations officer and consultant who has worked for Tom Ford, Armani, Valentino, Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, and Tod’s. She now has her own PR agency. In 2015, Forbes named her one of the 12 women who have changed Italian fashion (https://www.forbes.com/sites/declaneytan/2015/02/06/the-12-women-whove-changed-italian-fashion/#553827046f86). Noona is married to Enrico Erba, who is a client manager for Giorgio Armani.
Smith, James: Co-founder and CEO of Aegis Trust, an organization focused at stopping genocide in Rwanda. Aegis “enables students, professionals, decision-makers and a wider public to meet survivors and learn from their experiences” (https://www.aegistrust.org/what-we-do/).

Soames, Rupert & Milly: Rupert is a British businessman and CEO of Serco, a government contractor that provides health, transport, justice, immigration, defense, and citizen services. Soames and his company is heavily involved in many aspects of government (he is very close with former British Prime Minister David Cameron), and as such, has a huge impact on the public. For example, Serco has been contracted to work on a Coronavirus track-and-trace system for the United Kingdom National Health Service (NHS) (https://www.theguardian.com/society/2020/jun/04/nhs-track-and-trace-system-not-expected-to-be-operating-fully-until-september-coronavirus). Soames’s family is very close with the Royal Family (https://www.popsugar.com/celebrity/photo-gallery/44913948/image/44914915/Camilla-Dunne-Honorable-Rupert-Soames-1988). Prince William served as a pageboy at Rupert and Camilla’s wedding in 1988. Soames is the grandson of Winston Churchill and his brother, Nicholas Soames, served as a British MP from 1983-2019. Nicholas has been accused of being sexist and making inappropriate remarks by several female MPs. Nicholas is also a very close friend of Prince Charles (https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/profile-charless-biggest-buddy-nicholas-soames-royalist-minister-for-food-1466703.html). Milly (Camilla) is Rupert’s wife and High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire. Milly is a Patron/Trustee for Pace Centre, a children’s charity dedicated to providing education for children with sensory motor disorders (https://thepacecentre.org/about-pace/mission-values-vision/), Heart of Bucks (https://heartofbucks.org/committees-patrons/), an all-purpose charity that divvies up money to many causes, several of which involve children (https://heartofbucks.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/hob-annual-report-2018-2019-web.pdf), Action4Youth (https://www.action4youth.org/trustees/), which “partners with government, schools, youth clubs, businesses, trusts and foundations, and others (https://www.action4youth.org/about-action4youth/vision-mission-values/). Camilla is also the daughter of Sir Thomas Raymond Dunne, who served as a Lord Lieutenant of Hereford and Worcester, Worcestershire, and Herefordshire. Her brother, Phillip, has been a British Conservative MP since 2005.
Sobrino, Esperanza: Director of Acquavella art gallery.
Solomon, Andrew: Writer for The New York Times, The New Yorker, and other publications. Member of Council on Foreign Relations where Epstein once served.
Soros Peter: Nephew of George Soros. Works as an investment banker. Soros’s name is circled in Epstein’s black book. It turns out that Epstein’s former house manager circled the names of all material witnesses before he died in 2014 (https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2019/07/jeffrey-epstein-black-book-nick-bryant).
Soros, Peter: Same as above.
Soto, Fernando de: Real estate consultant.
Soto, Jaime & Marina de: No info found.
South, Hamilton: Founder of HL Group, a large marketing firm. Former Chief Marketing Officer for Ralph Lauren. South was a good friend of Carolyn Besette Kennedy (wife of JFK Jr) before she died. He was also a good friend of Lee Radziwill, mother-in-law of Carole Radziwill, listed earlier in Epstein’s book (check out the letter ‘R’ thread), before Lee’s passing.
Souza, Carlos: Works in public relations for Valentino.
Spacey, Kevin: Famous actor who has been accused of sexual assault by actor Anthony Rapp and 14 others (https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/2017/11/07/kevin-spacey-scandal-complete-list-13-accusers/835739001/). He was on the infamous Epstein Africa flight with Clinton and Chris Tucker. Spacey also made this chilling video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZveA-NAIDI), which many think was a direct threat to the Royal Family. As a lot of you know, Spacey was close with the Royal Family and Ghislaine Maxwell. Just last month, a picture surfaced of Spacey and Ghislaine sitting on the British throne (https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/04/uk/maxwell-spacey-throne-gbr-intl/index.html).
Squire, Hugo: See Hugo Swire below.
St. Bris, Edward: International license manager at Pierre Cardin.
Stanburry, Caroline: Reality TV star from the show Ladies of London. Stanbury has also worked in public relations and as a stylist. Ex-girlfriend of Prince Andrew (after his divorce from the Duchess of York) and actor Hugh Grant.
Stark, Koo: Famous photographer who dated Prince Andrew for nearly two years in the early ‘80s. Stark eventually married (and divorced) Tim Jefferies, who was listed earlier in Epstein’s book (check the J-L thread). Stark went on to have a daughter with someone else. Prince Andrew is the godfather.
Starzewski Thomas: Famous British fashion designer whose clothes have been worn by the Royal Family.
Steenkamp, Chris: Not enough info. Possibly the artist responsible for these lovely drawings (https://www.instagram.com/christophersteenkamp.art/?hl=en), but I cannot confirm.
Steiner, Jeffrey: Not enough info. Probably the co-managing partner of MWE real estate group. I could be wrong, though.
Steinkampf, Chris & Nina: No info found.
Stengel, Andrew: Former director of acquisitions for Miramax. Former aide to Governor Mario Cuomo (father of Andrew and Chris).
Stengel, Rick & Mary: Richard is an editor, author, and government official (Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs) under Barack Obama. Richard is now a Senior Advisor at Snapchat and serves on the board of CARE, a charity that caters to women and children (https://care.org/about-us/leadership/richard-stengel/). Mary is his South African wife. Nelson Mandela was the godfather to their son, Gabriel.
Stern, Allison & Leonard: Allison (nee Maher) is a former model and TV producer. Her husband, Leonard, is a billionaire businessman involved in real estate. Leonard founded Homes for the Homeless, a charity that aims to help the financially disadvantaged. A large focus of the charity is children and youth (https://www.hfhnyc.org/). Leonard is also quite the heartless bastard. He announced that he was selling a Homes for the Homeless apartment building in midtown Manhattan, forcing its inhabitants to move out (https://thejewishvoice.com/2019/12/billionaires-nyc-homeless-facility-boots-out-elderly-tenants-before-holidays/). Just to show an example of how all these wealthy people truly do know each other, here is a link with pictures of Malcolm Forbes’s 70th birthday party in Morocco in 1989. Forbes flew out 800 guests (https://www.newyorksocialdiary.com/this-was-then-malcolm-forbes-70th-birthday-part-i/), including Leonard and Allison Stern, Robert Maxwell (Ghislaine’s father), Rupert Murdoch, Ronald Perelman, Barbara Walters, Robert and Blaine Trump, Diane von Furstenberg, King Constantine, Henry Kissinger, James Goldsmith, Hamish Bowles, Gianni Agnelli, Kay Graham, Elizabeth Taylor, Calvin Klein, Oscar de la Renta, Walter Cronkite, Ann Getty, Fran Lebowitz, and more. Not only are these people rich, famous, and powerful, but many of them also appear in Epstein’s black book.
Stevens Michael: Not enough info.
Stopford-Sackville, Charlie &: Charles works in finance and securities. Owner of Drayton House (https://www.northamptonshiresurprise.com/organisation/drayton/) in Northamptonshire, England. Married to Shona McKinney, who I am guessing is the name that got cut off in Epstein’s black book. Shona is a good friend of Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/columnists/article-317052/Marks-married-maiden.html, who is a key figure in this whole Jeffrey Epstein saga.
Stracher Kate: Kate is an artist who went to Oxford with Ghislaine, but claims that she hasn’t seen her since then. (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1365733/How-Prince-Andrew-shared-room-Epsteins-Caribbean-hideaway-busty-blonde-claimed-brain-surgeon.html).
Sundlun, Stuart: Managing director of BMB Advisors, a private equity firm. Son of Governor Bruce Sundlun of Rhode Island (1991-1995). Stuart’s father also served as director of the National Security Education Board (NSEB) for four years under Clinton. Bruce is a great friend of Clinton right hand man (and multiple-time passenger on Epstein’s flight log), Ira Magaziner. Magaziner also appeared in Epstein’s black book (check out the ‘M’ thread for more info).
Sunley, Mr James & Amanda: James is CEO of Sunley Holdings, an investment company.
Sutherland, Harry: Likely refers to the investment banker who is Chairman of CrossInvest, an offshore corporate service company.

Swire, Jenny: Former Miss South Africa. Fashion director for Wedding Magazine and TV personality. Contributing editor for Tatler, a publication which has appeared more than ten times amongst Epstein’s contacts.
Swire, Mark: Involved in real estate.
Sykes, Lucy Ewen: Entrepreneur, fashion executive, and socialite. Fashion director of Marie Claire magazine. Former consultant for Ralph Lauren, T. J. Maxx, and Tommy Hilfiger. Good friend of nightclub guru Amy Sacco, who is one of the contacts listed earlier in this thread. Lucy and her husband attended a dinner for Prince Andrew at Epstein’s house in the early 2000s (https://www.thecut.com/2019/07/ghislaine-maxwell-the-socialite-on-jeffrey-epsteins-arm.html). Lucy’s husband, Euan Rellie, has been a friend of Ghislaine Maxwell’s for years.

Part 1/3

Critic's Criticisms Part I: Humor

A few months ago I completed a read through of all ~400 TLJ reviews on RT(now up to ~415). It was painfully boring at times, but that's salt mining for you. I wanted to get a handle on the critical reception which is commonly cited as universal praise. While it's generally true that critics loved TLJ, they also had some criticisms that would be right at home here at STC, and these come from super experienced and intellectual film critics, so they have to be valid, right? After all, these people know so much more about film than a layperson. They can fully evaluate a film on countless criteria that average fans don't comprehend. /s, but you see where I'm going here: many TLJ fans have put critics on a pedestal, as if their opinion is somehow more valuable as a baseline for TLJ's quality. So what about when critics are echoing our own criticisms of TLJ?
Almost every criticism we have lobbed at this movie was shared by at least a few critics, but there were three main criticisms that stood out as the most common. I'll start this series with humor in TLJ.
Peter Debruge, Variety -Fresh
Luke is funnier than we’ve ever seen him — a personality change that betrays how “Star Wars” has been influenced by industry trends. Though the series has always been self-aware enough to crack jokes, it now gives in to the same winking self-parody that is poisoning other franchises of late, from the Marvel movies to “Pirates of the Caribbean.” But it begs the question: If movies can’t take themselves seriously, why should audiences?
Harrison Ford was a good enough actor, and Han Solo an aloof enough character, that he could get away with it, but here, the laughs feel forced — as does the appearance of cuddly critters on each new planet.
Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter -Fresh
General Hux, who's goofily played by Domhnall Gleeson as if he were acting in a Monty Pythonesque parody
Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger -Fresh
humor is not only prevalent but often turned, mockingly, on the self-serious mythology of the whole saga. Sometimes there are too many jokes; certainly there's an overabundance of cutesy aliens.
Niall Browne, Movies in Focus -Fresh
It’s Finn’s mission which takes the film off on a diversion where it didn’t really need to go. There’s a lot of comedic hijinks involved in all of this which George Lucas would have excised from the first draft of anything he ever wrote.
There’s more humour in The Last Jedi than previous Star Wars movies; some of it hits, some of it doesn’t. The much publicised Porgs work for a moment or two, but they outstay their welcome. The film drew to a halt too many times to show-odd cute creatures. I didn’t care for the crystal wolves during the climatic battle and the aforementioned space Llamas feel like they belong in a Disney movie (wait, this is a Disney movie!)
Rendy Jones, Rendy Reviews -Fresh
"The Last Jedi" is a movie that follows elements of other Star Wars movies that works on its own but feels so similar to a Marvel film because the first half of this movie is a comedy. Seriously a lot of the first half of the movie has a silly vibe amongst all the death and destruction that surrounds it. It desperately tries to be a parody of itself by making serious situations comedic.
Ruben Rosario, MiamiArtZine -Fresh
Much has also been made of “Jedi's” jarring tonal shifts. Johnson inserts broad humor, then abruptly makes things serious, then back again to goofy content.
Christopher Llewellyn Reed, Film Festival Today -Fresh
[Kylo's] partner in evil, Domnhall Gleeson, as General Hux, is less fine, though much of the problem stems not so much from the actor as from the tonally strange, abusively co-dependent relationship between the two men; their jokey rapport feels like it belongs in a very different movie.
Alex Doenau, Trespass -Fresh
However, from the beginning there’s a discordant sense of humour that’s somewhat counter to the series’ ethos to date: rather than funny situations rising organically in the script, many of the characters openly seem to be making jokes. It’s how we introduce Poe this go-round, and it feels slightly off.
Owen Richards, The Arts Desk -Fresh
There’s a surprising amount of comedy in the film, quite a bit at the expense of beloved characters or series law; it’s funny, but not respectful.
Tim Brayton , Alternate Ending -Rotten
The Last Jedi has an impressively poor batting average for its jokes: it opens with a vengefully dumb "I have a bad phone connection" bit that put me on the movie's bad side basically as soon as it had a side to be on, and it's not exactly all uphill from there.
James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk -Fresh
Sometimes, however, his proclivities come at the film’s expense, such as his penchant for inserting quippy humor, sarcasm, and sight gags at odd times, which often undercuts the drama or simply smacks of too much effort.
Craig Takeuchi, Georgia Straight -Fresh
Weak points come with awkward humour that lacks comedic rhythm and an unnecessary casino escapade, where a disposable underworld character DJ (Benicio del Toro) is introduced, that subsequently soft lens into what is essentially a children's adventure tale about animals.
Rob Dean, Bullz-Eye.com -Fresh
Further pushing the disconnect is that the script is far too self-aware, constantly making the sort of jokes that nerds have been making about “Star Wars” for decades, as if it’s too cool to purely accept itself on its own merits. The comedy works about half the time, but there are a ton of jokes in this film that underscore all of the overly serious talk of hope that populates the movie.
Sonny Bunch, Washington Free Beacon - Rotten
Johnson tries too hard on the humor front. Just one, brief, example: The whole opening sequences involves Poe doing conference call shtick while trolling Admiral Hux (Domhnall Gleeson). It's weirdly un-Star-Wars in the sense that it feels like something you could see on any dreadful sitcom here on planet Earth; this sequence is more fit for The Big Bang Theory than a supposedly dark entry in the Star Wars canon. The Star Wars movies have always been funny, of course, and there are moments when Johnson makes it work in a Star-Wars-sort-of-way. On the whole, though, it feels desperate and forced.
Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru - Rotten
Johnson's screenplay awkwardly blend action and drama with comedy and little bit of tacked-on romance. One particular scene involving an image that's not what it initially appears to be comes out of nowhere and feels like it belongs in a parody of Star Wars even though it does generate laughter.
Tom Glasson, Concrete Playground -Fresh
With more gags, one-liners and quirky moments than all the other Star Wars films combined, The Last Jedi introduces a levity to the staid franchise in the vein of Roger Moore's turn as post-Connery Bond. At times it works, even to the point of guffaws, but ultimately the humour feels misplaced. In a story where loss abounds and crushing defeat looms large at every turn, the repeated cutaways to doe-eyed porgs purring like extras from a Pixar film distract more than they entertain. So, too, does Domhnall Gleeson, whose character General Hux plays more like a parody of a Star Wars villain. As a result, both the New Order and the film itself are robbed of their most enduring menace: the Empire.
Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com -Fresh
In “The Last Jedi,” we watch Poe poke at Hux, who’s been turned into a buffoon for the new film, teasing him by faking communication issues and sharing an opinion about his mother. It’s the first of many awkward attempts at humor from Johnson, who isn’t known for funny business
Kevin McCarthy, WTTG-TV -Fresh
The first act of the film features major pacing issues combined with unnecessary comedic moments that ultimately hurt the tone of the film. Unfortunately, a lot of this comes from Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker character.
Jonathan W. Hickman, Daily Film Fix -Fresh
I found myself frustrated that the tone was comedy and sometimes almost veered into parody.
Everything else is jokes and comedic references with a side of cheese. I found myself shaking my head more than laughing along.
Ray Greene, CineGods.com - Rotten
But it also doesn’t feel quite right — the language, the iconography, the weirdly campy humor at the beginning — it doesn’t feel a part of the Star Wars universe.
Josh Bell, Las Vegas Weekly -Fresh
The less said about the awkward attempts at comic relief, the better.
Matt Looker, TheShiznit.co.uk -Fresh
the comedy - and there is plenty of it - is spread out more evenly across the whole cast. In the case of Domhnall Gleeson's Hux, this becomes a good opportunity to poke fun at the horribly hammy performance he gave in The Force Awakens. But when he is playing those laughs off against his only foil - Kylo Ren - Johnson threatens to undermine their status as epic villains.
Christian Toto, HollywoodInToto.com - Rotten
Johnson drops plenty of cutesy comic moments into the mix, some of which would make even George Lucas blush. What was passable in 1977 no longer flies as easily today. And a franchise as esteemed as this one deserves richer comic relief.
Mark Hughes, Forbes -Fresh
The first act's humor is the shakiest, with some gags seeming more like something out of a Star Wars satire. The tone and irreverence of it was out of place, and a couple of bits went on one or two beats too long.
Scott Menzel, We Live Entertainment -Fresh
Speaking of laughs, the jokes and humor just fall flat. The jokes seemed out of place or were just so “on the nose” that I couldn’t help but be annoyed by them. I feel like the modern day humor didn’t feel the tone of the story and yet Johnson kept trying to lighten the mood by adding in cheesy jokes that weren’t even remotely amusing but instead were rather cringe-worthy.
Kevin Jagernauth The Playlist -Fresh
In the pursuit of providing some buoyancy to the picture, Johnson wields comedy like a sword, but it’s unfortunately the weakest element of the film. “Star Wars” has always been home to plenty of cornball one liners, and comedic passages, but there’s a delicacy to how they’re employed and delivered that allows them to land….or simply fall flat. Far too often, it’s the latter outcome in this picture, with some of the laughs feeling underwritten or simply shoehorned in. There’s a distinct lack of cleverness to the wit employed here — think something as seemingly spontaneous as BB-8’s “thumbs up” in ‘The Force Awakens’ — and while the gags don’t grind the picture to a halt, there are certainly some awkward patches where the expected laughs don’t materialize.
Rob Hunter, Film School Rejects -Fresh
The film is a series of points both high and low, and it’s nowhere more clear than in the humor. Several beats work well to bring a smile, but others fall tone deaf to the carnage and pain surrounding them. From the very beginning Hux’s scenes are made to feel like lost reels from Mel Brooks’ Spaceballs, and poor Boyega can’t catch a break as Finn is saddled with lame one-liners at every turn.
Alex Godfrey, GQ Magazine [UK] -Fresh
It’s funny, though not always when you want it to be – perhaps fearing too much gravitas, Johnson undermines it a little too often.
Robert Kojder, Flickering Myth -Fresh
Rian Johnson has crafted an installment that largely defies saga standard narrative structure and tone. There is a quick comedic dialogue exchange in the beginning between Oscar Isaac’s fighter pilot Poe Dameron and Domhnall Gleeson’s First Order General Hux that falls in line with the brand of humor Disney and Marvel inject into that particular cinematic universe.
John Serba, MLive.com -Fresh
Some stabs at comedy feel overwrought and clunky, including a stint on a ritzy planet of war profiteers, an extended sequence of skillfully directed silliness destined to be beloved fodder for apologists only.
Up next is Part II: Canto Bight.

Part 2/3

Critic's Criticisms Part II: Canto Bight

This is the continuation of my series highlighting specific critic's criticisms of TLJ. Part I on Humor is here, which also details my reasoning for this mining operation. Here we are covering Canto Bight, and we have everything from run of the mill iodized stuff to hail-sized rock salt on display, so adjust your goggles accordingly.
Johnson overplays his hand occasionally — most notably an unnecessary sequence at the casino city of Canto Bight that goes straight from a political sermon into a plot hole
Ethan Sacks, New York Daily News - Fresh
The bad news is, this involves an unnecessary trip to a kind of casino planet that doesn’t really advance the story.
Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic - Fresh
A scene in an opulent casino is easily the most painful yet in this new generation of Star Wars flicks, eliciting images of the green screen busy set pieces of the early-2000 franchise additions, enticing to the youngest members of the audience who need their stories overly padded with shiny spectacle.
Matt Oakes, Silver Screen Riot - Fresh
Boyega is a loveable hero, and his new compadre Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) is a nice addition. However, as much as it isn’t overbearing, their entire sub-plot is when the adventure loses steam. This moves the film away from where all the interest is – Luke. At this point, it becomes a little disjointed and unnecessary, never reaching a point of excitement required for a chunk of plot of this degree.
Cameron Frew, FrewFilm - Fresh
an extended digression with Finn and Rose that doesn’t end up counting for much plotwise
Bob Chipman, Moviebob Central - Fresh
Sadly, Boyega's Finn -- still an appealing character -- is saddled with a go-nowhere plot-line that has him and Resistance mechanic Rose show up at a space casino and cross paths with a rogue with a heart of a gold (or maybe just rogue?) played by Benicio Del Toro. There's the kernel of interesting idea there as we glimpse the socioeconomic underpinnings of this galaxy far, far away in a way we've never seen before, but it's a digression whose payoff doesn't warrant the build-up. And when you're already the longest Star Wars ever made (two and a half hours!), some snipping here and there might not have been a bad idea.
Zaki Hasan, Zaki's Corner - Fresh
I’m not a big fan of Finn and Rose’s side adventure, which has the air of a spinoff story being tacked onto the main narrative (probably to give Finn a purpose, since Rey is doing her own thing with Luke). Apart from showcasing the power of hope on a younger generation, it’s not as well integrated into the seams of the larger story as it could’ve been.
Tomas Trussow, The Lonely Film Critic - Fresh
It’s Finn’s mission which takes the film off on a diversion where it didn’t really need to go. There’s a lot of comedic hijinks involved in all of this which George Lucas would have excised from the first draft of anything he ever wrote.
Niall Browne, Movies in Focus - Fresh
Much of the Canto Bight sequence feels unnecessary
Molly Templeton, Eugene Weekly - Fresh
First, both prominent new characters Rose and DJ seemed shoe-horned in, and Rose especially doesn't seem to have a real place in this film nor does she add anything to be hopeful about in the future. And while both Rey and Poe fans will probably be pleased with where their characters go, Finn sort of takes a step back, as he is sent off on a side adventure that seems like second-tier Star Wars. It's a diversion that takes up a good portion of the film and really serves no purpose to the overall story...worse yet, it seems to contain some heavy-handed political messages not commonly found, at least not this blatantly, in the Star Wars universe. These are more than just quibbles too: Most fans will not be used to the slow, lumbering pace or the general unevenness of this film...especially coming on the heels of the action-packed pacing that JJ Abrams brought in Episode VII.
Tom Santilli, AXS.com - Fresh
There’s some stuff that feels extraneous (the whole Canto Bight sequence, which seems to exist to set up a new Lando-like character played by Benicio del Toro), and the cycle of attack and retreat — mostly retreat — gets a bit monotonous.
Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com - Fresh
Muchas de las situaciones se sienten forzadas e innecesarias (por ejemplo, la aventura de Finn y Rose, me parece innecesaria).
Ruben Peralta Rigaud, Cocalecas - Fresh
Their jaunt to the casino planet of Canto Bight serves little purpose besides introducing Del Toro, updating the cantina scene, and offering up a tired CGI chase scene that wouldn’t have looked out of place in Attack of the Clones. Kudos (maybe) to Johnson for introducing income inequality to the Star Wars universe, but the entire sequence feels rushed and shoehorned into an already long movie.
Pete Vonder Haar Houston Press - Fresh
The weakest of these is Finn's. It's briskly paced and full of action yes, but let's just say a casino is no cantina... Worse, it also sees him interacting with Prequel Trilogy levels of CGI critters.
Karl Puschmann, New Zealand Herald - Fresh
But the worst distraction “The Last Jedi” has to offer involves erstwhile Stormtrooper Finn (John Boyega) and a Resistance maintenance worker named Rose (Kelly Marie Tran), a subplot every bit as visually and narratively inept as Lucas’ prequels were taken as.
J. Olson, Cinemixtape - Rotten
Finn’s entire storyline could be cut and the film would be better off. As Finn was one of the driving-force leads of The Force Awakens and also a charming character, this is a disappointing development. His adventure is such a low point that it would not seem out of place in one of George Lucas’ efforts from between 1999 and 2005, and it serves little purpose to the film’s overall plot.
Alex Doenau, Trespass - Fresh
there’s too much going on in The Last Jedi, and a lot of it feels like filler. Besides the aforementioned, stalled-out space battle, there’s a clunky sequence in a casino that goes on far too long, a lot of distracting cameos, and new characters inhabited by Laura Dern and Benicio del Toro, who bring close to nothing to the proceedings.
Bob Grimm, Reno News and Review - Fresh
Finn and Rose (a new addition to the principal cast) distract the audience with an overlong and ultimately unnecessary side plot.
Richard Dove, International Business Times - Rotten
And this plotline feeds right into the absolutely unforgivably terrible subplot, which is the adventures of Finn (John Boyega) the cowardly ex-storm trooper, and Rose (Kelly Marie Tran), the class-conscious engineer, who go on a fetch quest that is every bit as pointless as the whole matter of the military nonsense, only even worse, because it hinges on terrible comedy, bad CGI, and a spectacularly horrible moment when Johnson stops the film in its tracks to provide a ruthlessly on-the-nose lesson about economic inequality and the military-industrial complex.
Tim Brayton, Alternate Ending - Rotten
Some of what happens on the casino planet — called Canto Bight, and sure to figure in the next film — is goofy on a level as cringe-inducing as things we saw in the prequel trilogy; like, Jar-Jar Binks–awful.
MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher - Fresh
Johnson does his best to hustle from one location to the next, but the narrative has a tendency from time to time to drag. The biggest example of this are the scenes on Canto Bight. Which is a shame, because a huge chunk of the film’s message is established on these scenes. But the very nature of the story, with its many moving parts, inadvertently makes this section of the film feel like a diversion.
Chris Evangelista, Slashfilm - Fresh
The humour is kind of sour in other places, too, such as the silly neo-cantina scene as Finn and Rose track the whereabouts of a mysterious encrypter, who might be the rebellion’s last hope, into a sort of galactic Monte Carlo. The abundance of slapstick there and in other parts of the film doesn’t click and feels forced.
Diva Velez, TheDivaReview.com - Fresh
In an unnecessary and quite frankly preposterous third subplot, Finn (John Boyega) and a new character, Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran), race against the clock to locate an underworld figure who can help them neutralise the First Order’s tracking device, thus allowing the diminished rebel fleet to escape.
Vicky Roach, Daily Telegraph (Australia) - Rotten
Weak points come with awkward humour that lacks comedic rhythm and an unnecessary casino escapade, where a disposable underworld character DJ (Benicio del Toro) is introduced, that subsequently soft lens into what is essentially a children's adventure tale about animals
Craig Takeuchi, Georgia Straight - Fresh
Unfortunately, we keep getting dragged away from the only emotionally resonant portion of the film to watch Finn and Rose engage in sub-prequel hijinks on the casino planet. Everything here is forced and awful, visually uninteresting and often dark to the point of unwatchability, lousy with mawkish little kids making bug eyes at the camera as we marvel at the horror of economic inequality, and drowned in an atrocious patina of truly terrible CGI. It calls to mind the droid factory in Attack of the Clones and the pre-podrace sequence in The Phantom Menace. Most offensively, the whole Finn/Rose diversion has absolutely no importance to the forward momentum of the plot—it's utterly irrelevant, even nonsensical.
Sonny Bunch, Washington Free Beacon - Rotten
Not everything in the film works: a few of the goofier comic moments fail to land and true to the legacy of Lucas there’s a fair amount of eye-wincing dialogue. More importantly, the second act bows under the weight of too many narrative strands; Finn’s away mission comes off as a bit superfluous, as does Laura Dern’s Vice Admiral Holdo, and both Rose and the beloved Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) are sadly underwritten. In a trade-off that brings scope and complexity, Johnson has sacrificed narrative efficiency.
Christopher Machell, CineVue - Fresh
I didn't like the sequence in a casino--a callback to the Star Wars Cantina, of course, but also a chance to discuss the evils of war profiteers and the 1%. There are creatures there, there's slapstick, there's a heist of sorts, and it all harks back to my favourite of Johnson's films, The Brothers Bloom, in the interplay between the characters, in the lightness and clarity of the scheme. But it's tonally disruptive, and it introduces a trio of children who seem like part of a different film.
Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central - Fresh
Finn and Rose’s trip to a gambling planet – basically a space Monaco – flits between light fun and on-the-nose political narrative.
Richard Whittaker, Austin Chronicle - Fresh
It also begs the question why the space casino sequence, arguably the least relevant to the core story, wasn’t dramatically trimmed back. Aside from a throwaway final shot, this section of the film is the weakest – designed to depict profiteering space-capitalism run rampant (ironically, also depicting a stable of space-horses also running rampant).
Patrick Kolan, Shotgun Cinema - Fresh
But as ingenious as this setup may be, it also gives rise to the film's most pointless subplot. After waking from his coma, Finn (John Boyega) contrives a means by which he can disable the New Order's tracking device, albeit one that requires him to sneak off the fleeing vessel, travel to a Monaco-styled casino planet, track down a master codebreaker and infiltrate the enemy's warship undetected. This enormous MacGuffin sees Boyega partnered with the charming Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, a Resistance engineer low in status but high in pluck. The problem is that their side adventure does absolutely nothing to advance the actual story.
Tom Glasson, Concrete Playground - Fresh
Unfortunately, John Boyega’s Finn, Oscar Isaac’s Poe and Kelly Marie Tran—as Finn’s new partner-in-rebellion Rose—are given the equivalent of busywork while the rest of the cast moves the plot along.
Simon Miraudo, Student Edge - Fresh
A detour to a casino planet where Finn and a resistance mechanic named Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) search for a codebreaker to help them disrupt the First Order's tracking of the retreating resistance ships feels like a trip into another movie. The stakes here seem far lower than the live-or-die scenario facing Poe, General Leia Organa (the late Carrie Fisher) and the others trying to make their getaway.
Greg Maki Star-Democrat (Easton, MD) Fresh
The only characters not doing a huge amount of growing are Finn (John Boyega) and mechanic Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran), and not for nothing, their subplot opens up a momentum drain that is the only weakness in The Last Jedi. Boyega and Tran are perfectly enjoyable, and their subplot isn’t a complete waste of time, but you start to feel the length of The Last Jedi when it veers off with them, and Finn’s arc is a pale echo of Poe’s so it’s not like much is being accomplished.
Sarah Marrs Lainey Gossip Fresh
Rey’s journey toward learning the ways of the Jedi is far more entertaining than Finn’s convoluted (and ultimately pointless) storyline
Josh Bell Las Vegas Weekly Fresh
Rose’s character is front and center in the film’s weakest sequences. We’re diverted to a city where the worst of the worst frolic. No, not the usual hives of scum and villainy. It’s a casino where the very, very rich cavort. The evil One Percenters! If you’re not immediately yanked out of the story here you deserve a prize. The accompanying dialogue is equally clunky, as is the reason all these vapid souls gained their fortunes.
Christian Toto, HollywoodInToto.com - Rotten
Far less successful is the time spent with the rebels on the run from Hux and the First Order. Not only is it centered on the slowest space chase in sci-fi history, but subplots featuring Poe, Finn (John Boyega), and Rose (newcomer Kelly Marie Tran) go absolutely nowhere. Sure we get introduced to DJ (Benicio Del Toro) and Vice Admiral Holdo (Laura Dern), but it’s with actions that fail to connect either through sheer stupidity or the simple truth that their absence wouldn’t change the story in the slightest. They’re obvious filler, and as is the Disney way (witness their Marvel films) the studio’s never met a character that couldn’t be jammed into a movie for no reason other than the misguided belief that more is better. Finn and Rose’s adventure in particular offers some additional action beats and a visit to a casino — think the Mos Eisley Cantina scene from Star Wars, but for the 1% — but it is meaningless noise.
Rob Hunter, Film School Rejects - Fresh
Meanwhile, what feels too much like the “B plot” side adventure has Finn and Rose on a mission that takes them into another film entirely, a sort of intergalactic James Bond-meets-Free Willy. It’s hard not to feel that their entire subplot could be axed in order to make The Last Jedi stronger and tighter, which is unfortunate.
Kaila Hale-Stern, The Mary Sue - Fresh
There is a whole section that feels out of kilter and harks back to the CGI naffness of the prequels — and is also virtually pointless to the plot.
Jamie East, The Sun (UK) - Fresh
The film’s epic 150-minute runtime allows plenty of room for Johnson’s inventiveness, but there’s also a tiny bit of fat in the middle of the movie, specifically in the Canto Bight scenes with Finn and Rose. The casino city itself is gorgeous and has some crazy-cool characters, plus Finn and Rose’s presence there shines a light on some new, worthwhile themes for the Star Wars franchise. However, in terms of the overall story, the whole escapade feels a little pointless and small. It doesn’t help that Benicio del Toro’s new character, DJ, who is part of the same storyline, is largely insignificant.
Germain Lussier, io9.com - Fresh
Star Wars: The Last Jedi does have a clear weak spot -- specifically the side plot that develops between Finn (John Boyega) and newly-introduced Resistance member Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran). Following a genuinely funny meet-up between the two characters, they are given their own special mission searching for a codebreaker who can assist in the battle against the First Order. But this storyline never feels particularly inspired or impactful as everything else going down in the movie. While it is constructed to fit with the larger themes of the film, features its own interesting expectation-flipping turns, and does eventually have a key impact on the macro scale, it's also the only part of the feature that ever feels expendable, and not helping anything is that it features the weakest visual effects of the blockbuster (especially during a second-act chase sequence).
Eric Eisenberg, CinemaBlend - Fresh
Finn and Rose’s mission takes them to Canto Bight, a kind of Monte Carlo peopled by extras from Babylon 5, and feels like it is just ticking the Weird Alien Bar box started by the Cantina. A ride on space horses also feels like a needless diversion, as does Benicio Del Toro’s space rogue, whose strange, laconic presence never really makes its mark.
Ian Freer, Empire Magazine - Fresh
It’s a shame, then, that the righteousness of Finn and Rose’s place in the film is undermined slightly by the limpness of their mission. Perhaps feeling there had to be some kind of Mos Eisley–esque sequence in the film, Johnson sends the pair to a casino city full of all kinds of creatures. It’s fun, sure, but the whole operation ultimately turns out to be a red herring. At least there’s some nice musing on liberation during this stretch, reminding us of the real stakes of this long story—freedom is, after all, what the Empire denies and the Rebel Alliance promises. And in a gorgeous third-act sequence—which includes the film’s true Empire Strikes Back homage—Finn and Rose finally get the emboldened moments they deserve. I just wish they fit more integrally into the central thesis of the film, that they were just as special, in their way, as Rey is, glinting with messianic power as she ascends.
Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair - Fresh
Of the three simultaneous plots, it’s Finn’s that sometimes drags down the energy, particularly with an introduction of a shady thief played by Benicio del Toro, the only new addition to the cast that doesn’t quite work; he seems to be acting in his own private movie, and it’s not as good as this one.
Will Leitch Paste Magazine - Fresh
Where the film struggles the most is on Canto Bight. Taken on her own, Rose isn’t a bad addition to the Star Wars mythos, and the movie definitely needs someone to play against Finn. Unfortunately, they lack the electric chemistry we saw between Finn and Rey in The Force Awakens, and their secret mission in a casino feels like it should be far more entertaining than it actually is.
Matt Goldberg, Collider - Fresh
Some action sequences are superfluous and unengaging. Benicio del Toro all but cameos as a sort of hobo hustler, while John Boyega’s Finn is sidelined, relegated to relatively inconsequential hi-jinx.
Alex Godfrey, GQ Magazine [UK] - Fresh
Finn (John Boyega) and newcomer Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) attempt an espionage mission that takes them to what is the Star Wars equivalent of the French Riviera. It’s a casino city named Canto Bight, and their adventures here push the Rick’s Café sensibilities from the original Star Wars’ cantina sequence to their limit. Nevertheless, this entire subplot amounts to a whole lot of padding while the real tough and revelatory decisions are made on Ahch-To.
David Crow, Den of Geek - Fresh
Plot-wise, I felt the entire side story at the casino world of Canto Bight was unnecessary. If you cut the entire sequence out of the film, it would have little impact on the core narrative.
Scott Chitwood ComingSoon.net - Fresh
Finn (John Boyega) wakes up, meets a admiring fan down in maintenance named Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran) and they head off on their own adventure, a detour that somehow combines the louche slickness of Cloud City and moralizing at its most Disney.
Joe Gross, Austin American-Statesman - Fresh
But The Last Jedi’s two-and-half-hour sprawl still includes an awful lot of clunky, derivative, and largely unnecessary incidents to wade through in order to get to its maverick last act. This is especially true when it comes to the plausibility-straining mission of stormtrooper turned Rebel Alliance fighter Finn (John Boyega) and puckish series newcomer Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran).
Sam C. Mac, Slant Magazine - Rotten
There are a couple of big names that fail to deliver much aside from, perhaps, realizing their childhood dreams of being in a “Star Wars” movie. A trip to a city that might as well be called Space Macau also fails to pay many dividends.
Christopher Lawrence, Las Vegas Review-Journal - Fresh
Case in point is the plot involving Finn (John Boyega) and new hero Rose's (Kelly Marie Tran) McGuffinesque mission to Canto Bight, which is of the ashtray-on-a-speederbike variety, and takes away from the tension cranked up elsewhere.
Harry Guerin, RTÉ (Ireland) - Fresh
The remaining 20% is made up of two different locales, one of which is entirely superfluous to the story. Essentially, there is a subplot that introduces Benicio del Toro’s mysterious work of eccentricity, except it doesn’t really do much of interest with him. Admittedly, it feels as if the character could be destined for bigger things in the final chapter, but I can only go off of what I watched, and well, the middle portion of The Last Jedi is stuck in the furthest setting from lightspeed. The journey expands to a space-Vegas full of various alien life forms and inhabitants, but it’s not as visually striking as previously explored planets. Additionally, by design, there seems to be filler injected simply because the other characters need things to do while Rey accomplishes what she needs to with Luke.
Robert Kojder, Flickering Myth - Fresh
The scenes on Canto Bight seemed like an unnecessary divert for Rose (a new character I actually really like) and Finn. This “casino planet” was like a scene right out of a low-budget Sy-Fy channel movie shot in Vancouver. It felt too familiar and earthbound to be a scene in an other-worldly scene in a Star Wars movie. The Rose/Finn alien horse race through the casino that ruined the galactic one-percenters good time and did some property damage was just ridiculous and should have been cut. Rose and Finn flopping around on the alien horse just looked like a bad theme park ride.
Chris Gore, Film Threat - Fresh
There’s a lengthy diversion to the casino planet of Canto Bight that feels pointless and tacked on just for the sake of giving us a cool new corner of the galaxy to feast our eyes on.
Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly - Fresh
And that's it for Part II. Happy Holidays to all my fellow fans and miners! Next week I will conclude with Part III, which will cover- well, let's just say it's the longest of this series by far. Heh.

31st October: Sheet Version 2.1.2 now up. Contains some minor additions of the Haunted Forest Mods and Divinity's changes in the 2.6.1 patch. I think that's going to be it until next Season!
20th October: Sheet Version 2.1 has now been implemented and all Shadowkeep modifiers introduced this season has been transitioned onto the 'live' sheets. Providing Bungie doesn't yeet some new ones in during Halloween or end-of-Season that's it until next Season! :)
 
 

Original Post

It's been over a month since my last post - which you can view here - which detailed a lot of post-Shadowkeep changes to Buffs, Debuffs, and other Sandbox changes. A quick reminder further down this post.
If you're brand new (hi New Light o/) to these series of posts I have constructed a spreadsheet which details all in-game Damage Modifiers - from Buffs, Debuffs, User Damage, Exotics, Perks, and Mods - if a modifier does something to your damage then it's in this spreadsheet - of which I call a 'catalogue'; literally an index of all in-game Modifiers. I have three versions which may interest you: a bandwidth- and download-heavy Images version, a non-Images version, and one which I've been working on since before Shadowkeep a "developer" version which contains up-to-date testing, new modifiers, and more - basically the sheet I use to input all my data before migrating it to the other two. Note: the Dev sheet isn't intended to be used as a "live" version and there are a lot of testing, broken structuring, spoilers, and whatnot.
 
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1i1KUwgVkd8qhwYj481gkV9sZNJQCE-C3Q-dpQutPCi4/
 
The link takes you directly to the 'Gateway' tab where you can choose which version you wish to view. Once again a note regarding the Images/Dev versions: these are very bandwidth-heavy and due to the way Google Sheets loads images you may need to slow-scroll to the bottom of the sheet before using properly. There are also bonus sheets like the NF Tracker and Catalyst List, but these two are merely for fun and I don't intend to support them as much as the catalogue.
The rest of this post details some specifics, like Sandbox changes and new additions with Shadowkeep now released. If you're a numbers Guardian nerd then enjoy this wall of text!
 
 

A Quick Reminder!

I've been seeing a lot of confusion regarding the main changes to Global Buffs, Debuffs, stacking in general, and Multiplicative changes. Quick reference for those nerds who like this stuff (me) as to Luke Smith's goal re: Modifiers here.
 
To recap:
  • The visual UI has changed to limit or stop completely Damage going over the visual cap of 999,999
  • These changes do not mean you do less damage, it's just restructuring the health pools, damage from Guardians, etc.
  • Most Buffs, Debuffs, Modifiers, etc remain unaltered - other than a few rebalancing and Stacking rules implemented (detailed below)
 
Multiplicative Damage & Stacking Rules
Multiplicative means modifiers are multiplied together in a single calculation. There was a lot of commentary pre-Shadowkeep that the ability to do multiplicative/stacking would be very restrictive but it turns out its not as bad as people were making out. As detailed:
  • All Modifiers can be stacked together in a manipulatively fashion, with notable exceptions like Riven's Curse and Transcendent Blessing which are Additive (each Mod is added in a single calculation)
  • With Shadowkeep Sandbox changes, only Global Buffs, Global Debuffs, and some specific Mods/Perks cannot stack on themselves
  • For example you can't stack a Well of Radiance and Bubble together, or a Tether and a Melting Point Cannon application together
  • In this above example the Buff with the highest Modifier, in this case Bubble, would take precedent; however secondary effects (like Well's health buff) will continue to work. When a Buff disappears the next highest Modifier will kick in [more details below]
  • Global Debuffs have not stacked with each other for some time now and follow a rule of different precedence: in the above example the Tether would apply over the Melting Point Debuff, effectively removing (and wasting) the Melting Point application [more details below]
  • You can still stack a Global Buff and a Global Debuff together!
  • Some new Perks/Mods incoming in Shadowkeep also follow some stacking rules (i.e. they don't stack with themselves) - but these aren't listed in the spreadsheet (yet)
  • And some other specific minors, but I won't go into detail here
 
Types of Buffs, Debuffs, and Modifiers
Another quick reminder about the types of Modifiers, as these are split into their own categories and 'types':
  • Global Buffs: Weapons of Light (Bubble), Banner Shield, Well of Radiance, Empowering Rift, Guiding Flame, Sun Warrior and Lumina's Buff; with specifics of Inertial Override and Frontal Assault
  • Global Debuffs: Both Tethers, Shattering Strike, Hammer Strike, Tractor Cannon's Debuff
  • User Modifiers: Combination Blow, Line 'Em Up, Knockout, Chaos Accelerant, etc
  • Gear & Weapon Modifiers: Exotic, Unique Legendary, Pinnacle Weapons; Exotic Gear, etc
  • Gear & Weapon Amplification Modifiers: Leviathan Mods, Spec Mods, Perks, etc
  • Activity Modifiers: Gambit and Reckoning Mechanics, Strike Mods, Prestige Raid Mods, Seasonal Event Mods, etc
 
  • 35% Modifier to all Damage provided by: Weapons of Light, Banner Shield, and Lumina's Buff
  • 25% Modifier to all Damage provided by: Well of Radiance, Empowering Rift, and Guiding Flame
  • 20% Modifier to all Damage provided by: Sun Warrior
  • 20% Modifier to Weapons Damage provided by: Inertial Override, and Frontal Assault
  • Global Buffs DO NOT STACK WITH EACH OTHER can be be used with other Global Debuffs and Modifiers
 
  • 30% Modifier to all Damage provided by ALL Debuffs
  • Notable change I: Tether can now effect Heavy damage!
  • Notable change II: Tractor Cannon no longer boosts Void damage more; it effects all Elemental and Kinetic damage equally!
  • Global Debuffs DO NOT STACK WITH EACH OTHER can can be used with other Global Buffs and Modifiers
  • Global Debuffs stacking precedence: Tractor Cannon > either Tether > Shattering Strike > Melting Point
 
Damage Perks
Shadowkeep brought in a slew of changes related to damage to 'Minors', buffs to weapons, and more - but here I'm focusing on the trusty weapon perks like Kill Clip and Rampage.
Before Shadowkeep dropped we got a snippet of the changes incoming. Weapon Damage Perks would be nerfed to their respective PVP values (yes, they had different Modifiers for PVE and PVP). I'll list some here:
  • Kill Clip - 33% Precision / 30% Body
  • Rampage (stacks to 3) - 10%, 20%, 30% (The Huckleberry keeps the old Modifiers)
  • Multikill Clip (stacks to 3) - 17%, 33%, 50%
  • Swashbuckler (stacks to 5) - 5%, 12%, 19%, 26%, 30%
As a reminder as what used to do: Kill Clip ~50%, Rampage could get ~65% at 3 stacks, and Multikill Clip could do double damage at its max stack!
Other & New Modifiers
  • In general, mostly unchanged; they will interact with Debuffs and Buffs as before
  • Combination Blow, Liar's Handshake, and One-Two Punch have had their potency reduced
  • OG Nightfall appears to have lost the ability to put Heavyweight, Grenadier, and Brawler (but these still exist in Strike Playlists and other activities)
 
  • Shadowkeep added a plethora of new Modifiers, Perks, and Mods - some which are not on the catalogue (yet) as they require more testing and well.. to actually obtain them
  • The Unstable Essence Buff you get from picking up those delicious orange orbs from Nightmares provides a stacking Buff towards Nightmare enemies. Starting at 20%, it increases by increments of 10% up to 80%!
 
  • Monte Carlo - basically uses old (pre-Shadowkeep) Swashbuckler and at 5 stacks can boost Damage by 65%!
  • Exotic Sniper Rifles had their exotic perks readjusted due to Snipers getting a general PVE damage buff - the changes aren't drastic and on paper they operate as before, but Izanagi's Burden (the weapon every one was hailing as the new 'go-to' in Shadowkeep) has been hit the hardest in terms of DPS. More details on the sheets as to their new modifiers
  • Eriana's Vow - the Damage buff provided is 33%
 
  • There are Nightmare mods called "Banisher", "Breaker", and "Crusher" which effect Super, Shield, and Melee/Grenades Damage respectively - and they have three tiers: NORMAL, ENHANCED, and SUPREME
  • The Gate Lord's Eye Artifact provides 3 Damage-boosting Mods: Thunder Coil (Arc Melee after Finisher), Oppressive Darkness (Void Grenades adds a Debuff), and From The Depths (Void Super Damage if cast
The above are not on the 'live' sheets yet, but will test/get data when they come but added here for exposure.
 
 
That's it for yet another wall-of-text! There is a lot to cover and discuss, but the spreadsheets gives you a broad view of new modifier, sandbox changes, and more. If you have any questions from a Modifier guru then comment below and I'll try to answer them. Reminder that all Modifiers are listed on the spreadsheet with their individual 'Notes' section to explain any thing.
Once again the link to the catalogue:
 
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1i1KUwgVkd8qhwYj481gkV9sZNJQCE-C3Q-dpQutPCi4/
 
Reminder: the 'Live' sheets are currently on version 2.0. Version 2.1 - which adds missing Mods, Artifact Mods, etc - will be (hopefully) released some time mid-October.
 
Just a quick personal comment regarding questions I've been getting regarding the Catalogue:
 
"Will you still support this?"
Yes, I do intend to keep supporting this document. I've made it very clear in previous comments and in the spreadsheet itself I don't intend to let it dip into deprecation. For as long as Destiny is supported, I'll support this document - and having fellow Guardians share and support (corrections, data, etc) also assists in making and maintaining this document a lot.
"Mobile-friendly version? I find it hard to use on non-desktop versions."
Yes - in time. I've been putting off an 'abridged' version for use on mobile platforms for some time. I am aware the sheets are a bit cumbersome on mobile. This abridged version may also be used as a quick glance even on desktop (it removes everything except the Modifiers and their numbers). When? Not sure, once the Shadowkeep honeymoon dies down I'll get one sorted.
"What does [insert non-Damage perk]/[this weapon's DPS] do?"
Not in the scope of the catalogue intentions; the spreadsheets only delve into explicit Damage-boosting Modifiers. However you can view some other documents which I've linked in the sheets, such as SkyWarrior's DPS sheets!
"Do you keep an update/log of what you do? What about future changes? How can I contact you directly?"
Absolutely! The 'Log & Credits' and 'Updates' tabs gives you a view of what I've been working on and updated/old modifiers respectively. The 'Developer' sheet is where I spend a lot of my time testing and adding data to avoid messing up with the 'Live' sheets - it also is the next sheet version, so you can view what is coming. You can contact me via Reddits DMs or Discord - preferably the latter. If you have any corrections or wish to give feedback then please let me know - providing data will ensure quick updates, and a shout-out on the Credits tab!
 
Thanks for all the support, and a special shout-out to a number of awesome people who have assisted, sourced, and corrected - they are listed on the spreadsheet in both the their own special 'Credits' tab - and of course Bungie themselves for making Destiny, where this project would not have been made.

The post is a continuation of : The Epstein Associate Nobody's Talking About: The IDF-Linked Bond Girl Infiltrating the UK NHS....Nicole Junkermann
I have a story to tell you. A story that causes my heart to pound and my blood pressure to rise as I type each and every word. A true story of a woman of great wealth and power, who rode on Jeffrey Epstein’s “Lolita Express” private jet on several occasions. She appears to be a German-born Israeli state intelligence operative based in London. An ex-model whose name appeared in the Panama Papers from the Mossack Fonseca leaks and who became embroiled in a FIFA corruption scandal with Sepp Blatter and his family. She is perhaps the closest example that you could possibly find to a real-life “Bond Girl.” Yet, she is almost completely unknown to the majority of us.
This lady has recently infiltrated the NHS through the UK Department of Health and Social Care with the help of Matt Hancock MP, and her presence signifies a major threat to the data security of every citizen of the United Kingdom. Every single piece of data about you, your health issues, your blood type, the model of the wireless pacemaker keeping you alive, every detail of every embarrassing medical problem in the hands of the Israeli state apparatus and potentially sold off to the highest bidder. ..
When I was first researching the Jeffrey Epstein case, I trawled through every piece of official documentation that was available. I knew what I was looking for and how very dangerous it was. I had begun attempting to identify state assets through their movements, actions, associations, and by good old fashioned detective work. I was interested in identifying any MI5 or MI6 agents, Israeli Mossad, CIA, or any other part of a nation states spying apparatus. It’s possibly one of the most dangerous hobbies on earth, spy hunting, and if I’m honest, I’m not even sure why I’m doing it. Regardless, Jeffrey Epstein’s sweetheart deal was probably what they would give to a foreign intelligence operative. Epstein was a perfect place to begin fishing for potential spooks....
As of 2019, Nicole Junkermann’s current business portfolio is very impressive. She’s often described as an ex-model, entrepreneur and investor, but Ms. Junkermann is much more than just what you see at first glance. Born in Dusseldorf, Germany on 27th April 1975, Nicole Junkermann studied Business Administration at the International University of Monaco, and then went onto study Management Development at the prestigious Harvard Business School in the United States. Amongst her many talents she is multilingual and can speak German, English, French, Italian, and Spanish. In 1998, after graduating from the University of Monaco, she co-founded “Winamax,” which was an early online gaming platform that existed before online gaming regulation became a priority for the authorities. Winamax was sold in 2001 and Junkermann would go on to invest in a recently created media rights company called “Infront Sports and Media AG,” where she would soon serve as the Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors.
..In 2002, Junkermann acquired the rights for the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany with her relatively new company Infront Sports and Media. The company was best known at this time for its president and chief executive, Philippe Blatter, the nephew of Sepp Blatter, the then president of FIFA. This overt nepotistic corruption left Junkermann’s Infront Sports and Media as the company to market the TV rights to major FIFA tournaments. It went on to acquire the rights to all of FIFA’s World Cups, and even though this deal was watered down in 2006, in 2011 FIFA again gave Infront permission to sell the TV rights, in the Asian markets, for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.
During her time at Infront Sports and Media, Junkermann would be caught flying on Jeffrey Epstein’s “Lolita Express” on three occasions. The first flight recorded, on 22nd March 2002, she would share with Epstein, Sean Koo, and one other passenger, but it’s her second trip which really stands out. On Saturday 31st August 2002, Jeffrey Epstein and Nicole Junkermann would fly from Paris Le Bourget Airport to Birmingham Airport, in the UK, alone. They would return to Paris, via the same route, on Monday 2nd September 2002. For Jeffrey Epstein to fly without any of his normally present entourage is very unusual. So what was happening that weekend? I’ve done a lot of research on these dates, but as of yet, I do not have any answers....
Since her very first acquisitions which I’ve already referred to, Junkermann has invested in or purchased: Shanghai Really Sports, Ziggurat, Thousand-Child, Aloha, Jobbio, Emoticast, Elvie, Auctionata, Coindrum, Spoon Guru, Optiopay, Grabyo, Magnum Global Ventures, Songza, tausendkind, Revolut, Sentient Technologies, Here be Dragons, Soundtrack Your Brand, Groq, Catapult, Delivery Club, Relate IQ, DollarShaveClub, Bruhouse Brewery, Cage Warriors, Eagle Alpha, Gokixx, Rebuy.de, Travelbird, Healthtech Digital, OWKIN, Reporty Homeland Security, and Carbyne911. The latter four of these companies are of significant interest. The Israeli Intelligence Connection
...The ominously named “Reporty Homeland Security” was the first incarnation of what is now called “Carbyne911” and is referred to as simply “Carbyne.” Described as a “global leader in public safety technology,” Carbyne is a call handling platform app that allows you to, amongst other things, stream any ongoing emergency directly to the responding emergency services. ....They can pinpoint your location, even indoors, to within three feet, and they claim that they can even collect data from dropped calls.
One of the directors of Carbyne is Nicole Junkermann. The chairman of the board of directors is Ehud Barak....Another of Carbyne’s directors and board members is Brigadier Pinchas Buchris, the former Deputy Commander of an elite IDF operations unit and former Commander of the IDF 8200 Cyber Intelligence Unit. Amir Elichai is the Founder and CEO of Carbyne, he is also a former Israeli Army officer who served in various positions in the special elite forces and the intelligence corps. Alex Dizengof is Carbyne’s Co-Founder & CTO. He’s described as a Software Architect and Algorithms Developer. Dizengof had previously developed machine learning algorithms for robots and mobile platforms, as well as cyber security software for the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office.
...Matt Hancock, Member of Parliament for West Suffolk and Secretary of State for Health and Social Care in the UK, appointed Nicole Junkermann to the Healthtech Advisory Board. For the vast majority of people living in the United Kingdom, the NHS is an institution which we cherish and adore. Many of us will protect the National Health Service with our lives because that’s what it has done for us in our darkest days.
..The two members which are of note relating to this story are Nicole Junkermann and Parker Moss, the latter happening to be the Chief Business Officer at OWKIN, which is one of the many companies in Junkermann’s vast portfolio. OWKIN is an AI startup that uses machine learning to augment medical and biology research. On its own, the company would probably be a perfect fit for the future of the NHS, but because of its connection to Nicole Junkermann and Israeli intelligence, OWKIN should be seen as too much of a risk to the data protection for NHS users.
...I believe that the future unsealing of previously hidden evidence will confirm that Jeffrey Epstein had been working for multiple intelligence agencies. But he is most likely to have been recruited by the Israeli state. Junkermann has managed to avoid her connections with Epstein being out in the open, until now. But she is skilled at controlling her public profile. Nicole Junkermann has become more powerful over the past eight years, and I have seen negative information relating to her previous scandals being removed from the search results. Go check yourself. Type in Nicole Junkermann on Google search and go through all the articles which appear. They are overwhelmingly positive, or simply relate to one of her businesses, and this is very different to what you would have found only a few years ago. When I first started investigating Nicole Junkermann, there were many negative articles which have all but vanished. I’m not even sure that this story will survive.
So, I ask you all to share this and publish it on your blogs and websites, and to bring the name Nicole Junkermann into the public eye.
Also, if I disappear anytime soon, remember. It was probably the Mossad.
Nicole Junkermann with husband Ferdinando Brachetti Peretti at the Vatican:
Ferdinando Maria Brachetti Peretti (born in Rome on January 13 1960), from the wealthy Brachetti Peretti family, is Chairman and CEO of an Italian energy company, API Group.

Del Lavoro Ferdinando Peretti.[citation needed] His mother, Mila, worked for more than 30 years in the Red Cross and is the only woman in Italy to carry the military grade of General.

He subsequently obtained his specialization at Boston University. He completed his military service as an officer of the Carabinieri.
After 1990 he started working as a manager in the family business of which he and his brothers are 100% shareholders. During his time with API he has held many positions, at first operating the "downstream cycle" (a combination of activities such as deliveries, transportation, refining, sale and marketing of oil). In 2007, after a series of promotions, he became Chairman of the company.[2] In this capacity, he focused the Group's activities back to the oil sector, with the strengthening of the distribution network and the improvement of the Falconara refinery.[3] He holds several other chairs, vice-chairs and advisory positions within API as well as being a member of the boards at UniCredit, the Executive Council of the "Rome Industrial Union" and Unione Petrolifera.

I have a story to tell you. A story that causes my heart to pound and my blood pressure to rise as I type each and every word. A true story of a woman of great wealth and power, who rode on Jeffrey Epstein’s “Lolita Express” private jet on several occasions. She appears to be a German-born Israeli state intelligence operative based in London. An ex-model whose name appeared in the Panama Papers from the Mossack Fonseca leaks and who became embroiled in a FIFA corruption scandal with Sepp Blatter and his family. She is perhaps the closest example that you could possibly find to a real-life “Bond Girl.” Yet, she is almost completely unknown to the majority of us.
This lady has recently infiltrated the NHS through the UK Department of Health and Social Care with the help of Matt Hancock MP, and her presence signifies a major threat to the data security of every citizen of the United Kingdom. Every single piece of data about you, your health issues, your blood type, the model of the wireless pacemaker keeping you alive, every detail of every embarrassing medical problem in the hands of the Israeli state apparatus and potentially sold off to the highest bidder. ..
When I was first researching the Jeffrey Epstein case, I trawled through every piece of official documentation that was available. I knew what I was looking for and how very dangerous it was. I had begun attempting to identify state assets through their movements, actions, associations, and by good old fashioned detective work. I was interested in identifying any MI5 or MI6 agents, Israeli Mossad, CIA, or any other part of a nation states spying apparatus. It’s possibly one of the most dangerous hobbies on earth, spy hunting, and if I’m honest, I’m not even sure why I’m doing it. Regardless, Jeffrey Epstein’s sweetheart deal was probably what they would give to a foreign intelligence operative. Epstein was a perfect place to begin fishing for potential spooks....
As of 2019, Nicole Junkermann’s current business portfolio is very impressive. She’s often described as an ex-model, entrepreneur and investor, but Ms. Junkermann is much more than just what you see at first glance. Born in Dusseldorf, Germany on 27th April 1975, Nicole Junkermann studied Business Administration at the International University of Monaco, and then went onto study Management Development at the prestigious Harvard Business School in the United States. Amongst her many talents she is multilingual and can speak German, English, French, Italian, and Spanish. In 1998, after graduating from the University of Monaco, she co-founded “Winamax,” which was an early online gaming platform that existed before online gaming regulation became a priority for the authorities. Winamax was sold in 2001 and Junkermann would go on to invest in a recently created media rights company called “Infront Sports and Media AG,” where she would soon serve as the Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors.
..In 2002, Junkermann acquired the rights for the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany with her relatively new company Infront Sports and Media. The company was best known at this time for its president and chief executive, Philippe Blatter, the nephew of Sepp Blatter, the then president of FIFA. This overt nepotistic corruption left Junkermann’s Infront Sports and Media as the company to market the TV rights to major FIFA tournaments. It went on to acquire the rights to all of FIFA’s World Cups, and even though this deal was watered down in 2006, in 2011 FIFA again gave Infront permission to sell the TV rights, in the Asian markets, for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.
During her time at Infront Sports and Media, Junkermann would be caught flying on Jeffrey Epstein’s “Lolita Express” on three occasions. The first flight recorded, on 22nd March 2002, she would share with Epstein, Sean Koo, and one other passenger, but it’s her second trip which really stands out. On Saturday 31st August 2002, Jeffrey Epstein and Nicole Junkermann would fly from Paris Le Bourget Airport to Birmingham Airport, in the UK, alone. They would return to Paris, via the same route, on Monday 2nd September 2002. For Jeffrey Epstein to fly without any of his normally present entourage is very unusual. So what was happening that weekend? I’ve done a lot of research on these dates, but as of yet, I do not have any answers....
Since her very first acquisitions which I’ve already referred to, Junkermann has invested in or purchased: Shanghai Really Sports, Ziggurat, Thousand-Child, Aloha, Jobbio, Emoticast, Elvie, Auctionata, Coindrum, Spoon Guru, Optiopay, Grabyo, Magnum Global Ventures, Songza, tausendkind, Revolut, Sentient Technologies, Here be Dragons, Soundtrack Your Brand, Groq, Catapult, Delivery Club, Relate IQ, DollarShaveClub, Bruhouse Brewery, Cage Warriors, Eagle Alpha, Gokixx, Rebuy.de, Travelbird, Healthtech Digital, OWKIN, Reporty Homeland Security, and Carbyne911. The latter four of these companies are of significant interest.
The Israeli Intelligence Connection
...The ominously named “Reporty Homeland Security” was the first incarnation of what is now called “Carbyne911” and is referred to as simply “Carbyne.” Described as a “global leader in public safety technology,” Carbyne is a call handling platform app that allows you to, amongst other things, stream any ongoing emergency directly to the responding emergency services. ....They can pinpoint your location, even indoors, to within three feet, and they claim that they can even collect data from dropped calls.
One of the directors of Carbyne is Nicole Junkermann. The chairman of the board of directors is Ehud Barak....Another of Carbyne’s directors and board members is Brigadier Pinchas Buchris, the former Deputy Commander of an elite IDF operations unit and former Commander of the IDF 8200 Cyber Intelligence Unit. Amir Elichai is the Founder and CEO of Carbyne, he is also a former Israeli Army officer who served in various positions in the special elite forces and the intelligence corps. Alex Dizengof is Carbyne’s Co-Founder & CTO. He’s described as a Software Architect and Algorithms Developer. Dizengof had previously developed machine learning algorithms for robots and mobile platforms, as well as cyber security software for the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office.
...Matt Hancock, Member of Parliament for West Suffolk and Secretary of State for Health and Social Care in the UK, appointed Nicole Junkermann to the Healthtech Advisory Board. For the vast majority of people living in the United Kingdom, the NHS is an institution which we cherish and adore. Many of us will protect the National Health Service with our lives because that’s what it has done for us in our darkest days.
..The two members which are of note relating to this story are Nicole Junkermann and Parker Moss, the latter happening to be the Chief Business Officer at OWKIN, which is one of the many companies in Junkermann’s vast portfolio. OWKIN is an AI startup that uses machine learning to augment medical and biology research. On its own, the company would probably be a perfect fit for the future of the NHS, but because of its connection to Nicole Junkermann and Israeli intelligence, OWKIN should be seen as too much of a risk to the data protection for NHS users.
...I believe that the future unsealing of previously hidden evidence will confirm that Jeffrey Epstein had been working for multiple intelligence agencies. But he is most likely to have been recruited by the Israeli state. Junkermann has managed to avoid her connections with Epstein being out in the open, until now. But she is skilled at controlling her public profile. Nicole Junkermann has become more powerful over the past eight years, and I have seen negative information relating to her previous scandals being removed from the search results. Go check yourself. Type in Nicole Junkermann on Google search and go through all the articles which appear. They are overwhelmingly positive, or simply relate to one of her businesses, and this is very different to what you would have found only a few years ago. When I first started investigating Nicole Junkermann, there were many negative articles which have all but vanished. I’m not even sure that this story will survive.
So, I ask you all to share this and publish it on your blogs and websites, and to bring the name Nicole Junkermann into the public eye.
Also, if I disappear anytime soon, remember. It was probably the Mossad.

Nicole Junkermann with husband Ferdinando Brachetti Peretti at the Vatican:
Ferdinando Maria Brachetti Peretti (born in Rome on January 13 1960), from the wealthy Brachetti Peretti family, is Chairman and CEO of an Italian energy company, API Group.
https://www.specchioeconomico.com/200712/brachetti.html (translated from Italian)
Ferdinando Brachetti Peretti is managing director of api holding, president of api energia and api nòva energia spa. api is written with the initials strictly in lowercase and with the horse logo, operating for about 80 years in the oil and energy sector and family safe. One day before this affirmation Jim Rogers, founder with George Soros of the Quantum Fund, a fund famous in the world of finance for double-digit returns, had predicted a rising price up to $ 150 a barrel for oil; and Paolo Scaroni, CEO of ENI, had assessed the world reserves sufficient for another 70 years. Meanwhile, between the stock exchanges of London and New York there was a surge in prices for companies operating in the photovoltaic sector, along with an unmotivated loss for those operating in the wind farm. An energy world, therefore, in full turbulence. At the Rome Fair, where the World Energy Congress was taking place, Ferdinando Brachetti Peretti looked to the future of the companies entrusted to him and planned new developments. Representatives of Iberdrola, a Spanish company operating in all energy sectors, awaited him.
...Great commitment to work, confidentiality, mutual respect of people and roles in the company and in the parental group are in the family tradition. The founder of today, the knight of Labor Aldo Brachetti, at the time of his marriage with Mila Peretti wanted to unite, to his own, the surname of his father-in-law, founder of the company, starting the lineage of Brachetti Peretti. No interviews, very few public appearances, no gossip, despite being related to important names of Italian high society. Ferdinando is married to SAR Mafalda d'Assia, nephew of the princess Mafalda di Savoia, second child of Vittorio Emanuele III and wife of Filippo d'Assia.
Ferdinando's brother, Ugo, who heads the oil sector, refining, marketing and distribution, married Isabella Borromeo of the princes of Angera, elder sister of Lavinia Borromeo, wife of John Elkann, heir of Fiat. 47 years old, tall, thin, Ferdinando starts the day early in the morning. Exercise bikes in the home gym, at 7.00 race in the avenues of Villa Borghese, then at work to take care of the oil holding and the two electricity companies entrusted to his particular care. After the classical high school, enrollment in the Faculty of Economics and Commerce, the move to London for two years, the start of the oil trading office. Then to Paris, to follow administration and finance at the Paribas Bank.
At the same time he practiced various sports, he was an Italian helicopter pilot champion, he participated in motorbike competitions, he was an officer of the Carabinieri in the 1980s and 1981, earning the solemn commendation from the Head of State Sandro Pertini on the occasion of the earthquake of the 'Irpinia. This has been the case for 25 years, during which he first followed all the sectors of the Group managing the "downstream" cycle which he considers one of the most alive and interesting, that is the set of activities from the supply of crude oil to transport on ships, to refining, marketing, selling oil and its derivatives, as well as green gasoline, diesel, lubricants, LPG in cylinders, turpentine, sulfur soap, up to the asphalt with the latest product of the non-stick bitumen from the Alma refinery of Ravenna,..
Brachetti Peretti's father, Count Aldo Maria Brachetti Peretti, was for thirty years, until September 2007, head of the family Group “API” (Anonima Petroli Italiana), founded by his maternal grandfather Cav. Del Lavoro Ferdinando Peretti.[citation needed] His mother, Mila, worked for more than 30 years in the Red Cross and is the only woman in Italy to carry the military grade of General.
Mila Peretti
Her son Ugo and brother-in-law of Junkermann: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ugo_Brachetti_Peretti
Ugo Maria Brachetti Peretti (born July 8, 1965, Rome) is an Italian oil executive. ..His father, Count Aldo Maria Brachetti Peretti, Cavaliere Del Lavoro was the head of the family group, Anonima Petroli Italiana (API) for thirty years, until his retirement in September 2007. The company was founded by his maternal grandfather Cavaliere Del Lavoro Ferdinando Peretti. His mother, Mila Peretti,[1] is the National Inspectress of the Italian Red Cross, which she has served for over 30 years. She is the only woman in Italy to carry the military grade of General. In 2005 Peretti married the Countess Isabella Borromeo Arese Taverna.
He was educated at the American Community School in London where he graduated in 1983 with an international Baccalaureate degree and then qualified for a degree in Business Administration at the American University of Rome in 1987. He subsequently obtained his specialization at Boston University. He completed his military service as an officer of the Carabinieri.
After 1990 he started working as a manager in the family business of which he and his brothers are 100% shareholders. During his time with API he has held many positions, at first operating the "downstream cycle" (a combination of activities such as deliveries, transportation, refining, sale and marketing of oil). In 2007, after a series of promotions, he became Chairman of the company.[2] In this capacity, he focused the Group's activities back to the oil sector, with the strengthening of the distribution network and the improvement of the Falconara refinery.[3] He holds several other chairs, vice-chairs and advisory positions within API as well as being a member of the boards at UniCredit, the Executive Council of the "Rome Industrial Union" and Unione Petrolifera.
Through social media one can see the deep ties to the Vatican... I'm archiving those connections..
Red Cross and Vatican helped thousands of Nazis to escape -
Corps of Gendarmerie of Vatican City
The Gendarmerie Corps of Vatican City State (Italian: Corpo della Gendarmeria dello Stato della Città del Vaticano) is the gendarmerie, or police and security force, of Vatican City and the extraterritorial properties of the Holy See.
In 1816, after the dissolution of the Napoleonic empire, Pope Pius VII founded the Papal Carabinieri Corps for the service of the Papal States.
Ugo is married to Isabella Borromeo Arese Taverna ..her half-sister is Beatrice https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beatrice_Borromeo
Beatrice dei Principi Borromeo Arese Taverna (born 18 August 1985 in San Candido)[5] is a member of the ancient aristocratic House of Borromeo, and she is well known in the Italian news media as a television personality. She is the wife of Pierre Casiraghi, younger son of Caroline, Princess of Hanover...
Through her father she is related to Carlo Borromeo (1538–1584), who became a cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church, Archbishop of Milan, and a canonized saint. The family currently owns most of the Borromean Islands in the Lago Maggiore, Milan city, and many other estates in the Lombardy and Piedmont countryside .
House of Borromeo https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Borromeo
The best-known members of the family were the cardinals and Archbishops of Milan; Carlo (1538–1584), who was canonized by Pope Paul V in 1610, and Federico (1564–1631), who founded the Ambrosian Library. The figure of the Borromean rings, which forms part of the family’s coat of arms, is well known in the diverse fields of topology, psychoanalysis and theology.
I'll stop there for now. But y'all have heard about the thousands of bones found buried in the Vatican City, right? Wonder what that's all about. Story here:

2019.06.19 10:26 sc00b44 Team Alpha (suspense)

Jon is a highly trained individual in the field of military tactics, weapons knowledge his resume runs though everything! You can see it in his eyes that he has seen some serious action during his active duty time in the Navy SEALS. Jon was only 18 when he joined the military, and finally made his way up through the ranks and all of the training to become an elite Navy SEAL after years of training. Jon is a special type of soldier, the guy you send in when stuff needs to be “handled” and “handled” quickly and correctly. Jon lived a pretty normal life outside the military, he had a wife and a little girl. He picked his daughter up from school and went to soccer practices. Jon was a normal guy to everyone that knew him, they didn’t know about his incredibly extensive military training, that was classified information due to his military status and SEAL team. Jon would play golf with the neighborhood guys, and go to barbecues with the family. A totally normal life. But during the day, at the military outpost/base “Bravo” that his SEAL team was currently operating out of. They were in Miami, and the SEAL team was actually working with the Customs and Border Patrol to intercept large drug shipments coming from Cuba. Jon was just living a normal life in Miami working in unison with the CIA, FBI, Border Patrol and of course his branch, the Navy. There goal, to intercept the largest shipment of meth ever attempted to be sent into the US from Cuba. The intel that the team had was that the meth was coming from a super lab somewhere in Eastern Europe, but the producers were quite intelligent and were moving their large operation from country to country about every 2 months at the most, they could be in Mexico they could be in Iraq. These guys were ghosts, able to dodge nearly everyone that had gone after them, only one or two teams ever even got close enough for a photo of two of the guys. But their main mission was already set, there was a shipment ready to be sent across the water of 1,000 kilos of meth, worth well over 1 billion US dollars. The team that consisted of Jon, the highly Trained Navy SEAL, Trevor the computer guru, Evan, the Army Ranger who specialized in heavy weapons and bombs. And Rick, a retired Air Force pilot and FBI agent. The team was ready to go to Cuba and collect intel on the shipment that was being stored somewhere in a safe house in Cuba. They knew that the mission was dangerous and they knew the types of people they were dealing with. This wasn’t any of the guys first rodeo. A month before the operation was to go down, the team rendezvoused in Cuba. They all met up in a safe house in a small neighborhood outside of Havana that the FBI had surveilled before they arrived. The safe house was a perfect base for the team to set up their computer gear, and set up for a successful operation. They had done a lot of preparation to make sure that the safe house they were using was in a good location to where they wouldn’t be “made”. The team was naturally nervous as they should be taking on an enemy like they are, ruthless and ready to protect their profits at any cause. Trevor the teams tech guru, had set up quite the array of camera, and other tech safety nets. He was ready to see whatever was coming and going within a mile of the safe house. He was ready to keep everyone safe and secure, good thing that they brought along the techie! Our heavy weapons and bomb specialist Evan, had set up mines around the perimeter to ensure that anyone trying to infiltrate the compound would be sorely mistaking on doing so, not only might those mines kill the attackers, but would give the team ample time to prepare and attack accordingly. This wasn’t just any old drug interception mission, this was the biggest the US had ever seen or even heard of being prepped to com into the US, and they were not about to let that happen. Essentially they were ready for war. Trevor and gathered quite a bit of intel over the dark-net on the transaction that they were trying to stop. Since the dark-net is notoriously anonymous it is hard for him to identify the people, but he was able to procure the conversations being had online about this deal, which was quite useful. He knew everything from the drop off and pick up plans. But other than that they people were ghosts. They had spend months trying to identify the people that would be able to legitimately supply this amount of drugs, and that narrowed the list substantially, to only about 5 groups of people. And through hard work and some insiders they narrowed it down to two. But they still were not ready to take action since they didn’t know exactly who they were looking for. Jon had done some old school recon around town to see if he could gather any word on who would be able to do such a thing, he came up empty handed most of the time, especially since he was so low key as to not try to draw attention to himself. But one day, at a tiny local bar, he overhead a conversation that would turn this investigation on its head. Jon was sitting at the bar, having a beer when two men walk in and to his luck take a seat right next to him. Jon nervous already, didn’t say a thing, and let the men go on with their business. Usually he would have introduced himself, but not this time, he had a feeling something was up. They two men began talking quietly to themselves when Jon overheard talk of a “shipment” and “goods” immediately tying those to drug terms. He was right, the two men were talking about the shipment that Jon and his team were out in Cuba to stop, talk about the right place at the right time. The two men spoke in detail about the buyer and the logistics on the whole deal, much more than Jon had ever hoped to gather. Jon was floored that he was hearing what he was hearing, they were basically giving themselves up, if only they knew who they were sitting next to. Jon frantically trying to remember every single detail he could on everything they said, seeing that he couldn’t be taking notes right on front of them, so he sat at the bar, and casually drank a couple of beers as to not seem out of place. And boy did he gather the intel that they needed. Carlo and Nico were the two people that sat next to Jon that night in the bar in Havana. Carlo and Nico were the people who were going to be supplying the shipment of meth. And Jon had heard them talking about an American buyer named James, and this shipment was making its way to the US but ship into Long Beach. Jon briefed Trevor on what he had heard so that Trevor could cross reference all of that information online and see what else that he maybe able to find. Trevor was able to verify that those were indeed the people that were supplying the drugs, and that was a huge win for the team to have identified the people who were supplying the drugs, that was the primary objective, to cut the head off of the snake. This was a big mission and a huge priority on the “war on drugs”. After a few months at the safe house in Cuba, getting the lay of the land and gathering intel through the locals and just sitting and listing, hence Jons huge break in the case! The date that they drugs were to hit the water to the USA was rapidly approaching so the team needed to begin to get ready tactically. They were 4 men, against an entire cartel who was willing to protect this deal with their lives, this was absolutely no joke. The nights before the official drop date. The team would make dinners at the safe house and pray. Pray that they would be able to come back to their families, and pray that god would keep them safe. They also enjoyed to spend time with each other before a big mission, and dinners were like sitting with family, these men were family they trusted each other with their lives. They drop day was one day away, so the team was spending the majority of their time going over plans, cleaning and prepping gear, and getting mentally prepared for anything to come. They were determined to nail these guys and go down in history. The mental part for most of the guys was the hardest, most of them the day before the left wrote letters in to their loved ones in case they didn’t come back, which is very emotional, and really puts what they are about to take on in perspective. They were ready to take down Carlo and Nico. Nothing was going to stop them but a lethal bullet. Which was all too real of a possibility. Even with all of their experience and combined skills there was always a posed risk. Today was the day, they were packing up and leaving the safe house, only man that would stay behind was Trevor, for communication and all of their tech surveillance etc. They were ready to go and take down Carlo and Nico. They had worked tirelessly day and night to make sure that their intel was good, and that they were going to be as safe and organized as possible. And that took a lot of work from everyone on the team, and some outside. But today was the day, they were gearing up to intercept the shipment before it made its was on the ocean linear. They wanted to made the bust in Cuba so that they can persecute the dealers, that we’re in Cuba. They will for sure arrest the intended recipient but their eye was on the main prize, the produces are the suppliers of tons of meth. They were all gearing up their bags and weapons making sure everything was in perfect working order so their wouldn’t be any surprises if shot were to be fired and shit hit the fan. Ideally that wouldn’t happen and the bust would be clean without any shots fired, but they were on foreign soil and that was a high possibility that shots would be fired and they would see some action, but the team wanted to make this go down without a shell hitting the ground. It had just gotten dark so the team deployed under the cover of darkness, they same thing that they dealers were Donny. They left the safe house with Trevor behind for all the communication and tech support. According to the intel that they had they shipment was in a white container with 2 cars inside, with the meth in the panels of both of the vehicles, so they target was clear. Each container is opened and inspected before they are loaded, but a lot of these customs officials on ship yards can be bought fairly easily especially with the resources that Carlo and Nico had available. The team set up in the ship yard all close but in tactical positions, they had Evan in a sniper spot ready to go with C4 charges that he had at the ready, as well as a rocket launcher if shit really hit the fan. Rick with on the roof at the ready with a helicopter ready to rain down hell at a moments notice, and Jon was on the ground plain clothed with just a pistol and a radio, watching each container as closely as possible he looked like he worked in the ship yard, so it really was the perfect cover for him to stay close to the inspection area. Evan had his scope centered in the same area that Jon was in not only for cover but also an extra set of eyes to see what is in each container in case Jon were to have move and not be able to see what was in the container, so no container was getting on that ship without the team having eyes on what was inside. Trevor had even set up HD hidden camera in the inspection area so that there was no chance that a container made it on the ship without them seeing inside. And once they identified the target container they would go into action. The big debate was if Carlo and Nico weren’t there was it worth it to take it down in Cuba? Or just wait for it to get to the states and seize it there? They didn’t want to blow their cover that they were on Carlo and Nico’s tails. It was go time, they were all set up and just waiting at this point for the target to show up. Not only do they have to hide from any potential looks out and the targets themselves but also any Cuban police or officials because they aren’t in on this operation so that would totally blow the op. They ship was set to leave the dock at 3 am that morning, so sometime between now and then that target container was going to show up. After hours and hours of waiting and carefully watching every move and and every container, boom, the white container with two dodge panel vans inside opens up and there it is, the target. The only thing missing were Carlo and Nico, the head of the snake. The team has already identified the container and knows that it is getting on the ship so they can seize it at any time, but what they really want is the two together they Carlo and Nico with the shipment. So they decide to let the container get loaded. All of a sudden over the radio Trevor from the safe house says “target spotted” Trevor was running a military style drone over the ship yard and got eyes on two men hanging out on the other side of the yard, “guys I think these are our boys” Trevor says “I cant make out their faces 100% but this has to be them, not a whole lot of guys in suits in a shipping yard. They are about 300 yards to to the south of your position. In the main parking lot” looks like the patients has paid off. Ryan leaves his sniper post to meet up with Jon and go see if they can get a positive ID on the two men, carefully they make their way through the yard without being seen. They get to the lot and take cover behind a big rig. “Base, this is Jon, we have eyes on the men, these are our men, we have a positive ID” Rick then launches the chopper as sort of a distraction so that Jon and Evan can make it closer to make a take down. So Ryan launches the chopper from the roof and begins to circle the ship really taking Carlo and Nico’s eyes on the chopper, thinking that it could be trouble, and trouble it was. Jon and Evan continue to sneak closer and closer until they are only about 10 feet from Carlo and Nico just behind another car next to theirs. They could hear them talking to someone on the phone assuming it was the buyer “the shipment has just been loaded onto the ship, and everything is a go”. This giving Jon and Evan everything that they needed to take these two down. As soon as they get the opportunity they jump out from behind the car, and yell “Get on the ground, get on the ground!” They physically take both of them to the ground and cuff them They got their targets! But the mission isn’t done yet, they still need to stop the ship from leaving the port and seizing the drug filled container. They arrested Carlo and Nico, and radio to home base that they have the men in custody, but they now need help from another agency to get the ship stopped. They quickly send over the photos that they have of the container and now the two men and Trevor was able to hack into the shipping yard system and pretty much completely put a stop to the whole yard, he killed their system buying the team plenty of time to board the ship and search the container to verify the drugs were there and complete their task. Now that Trevor put a virtual hold on the yard, the team had time to rendezvous in the yard to board the ship, they had help from the US military from a small base in Cuba, so they were holding Carlo and Nico while Jon, Evan and Rick all boarded the ship to look into the white container. They locate the container on the ship grab a set of bolt cutters and open up the container, at first glance its two vans. But then it hits them, a chemical smell, the smell of meth. They pop open on panel on the driver side door on the first van and, jackpot, this is it, they did it! Not a scratch on anyone except for maybe Carlo and Nico from getting taken to the ground fairly “rough”. After a massive group effort from all different agencies and branches of the military they have made the largest drug bust in history. What seemed like a small deal at first with just two men, turned out two be the largest shipment of meth ever seized by any agency anywhere in the world. The team was elated that their plan went down without a hitch. Jon, Trevor, Evan and Nick were all very proud of their effort and their success. Usually bust of this size end in violence, and the team had caught them totally off guard and just swooped in like an eagle and grabbed it. They were successful in prosecuting Nico and Carlo in the United States and they were sentenced to life in a federal prison. They team were all given awards of valor by the President for their bravery and success. Each of these men had an array of military training and were all also given medals from their specific branch of the military like Jon got an award of valor from the Navy. After month of recon and being out in Cuba in the field Jon was able to finally return home. He never went a day without thinking of his kids. He couldn’t do this anymore being gone for 3 to 4 moths at time, he wanted to be with his family. So later that week Jon requested to be discharge and that was granted, Jon was able to leave the military in good standing so he could finally live out his life normally with his wife and children. He would Jon ended up moving to Colorado and buying a ranch were he lived out his life with his wife and kids, working as a rancher and occasionally helping out the military on short contracts. But he was finally able to relax and really sit back on his front porch with his family and know how would be there tomorrow and next week, he was home and he was with his family. He had it all.

2019.05.22 01:29 danl999 The Chaotic World of Sorcerers

This stuff works as Carlos promised. For the hecklers out there who've been saying he's a fake since he died, what were you doing all that time? Yoga postures? Buddhist acts of servitude?
Obviously you weren't practicing Carlos' techniques, or you would have noticed it actually works.
What we imagine it'll be like, that's the part that's probably not true. So keep that in mind while reading the chaos described in these notes, taken from that link recently posted in the workshop notes thread. Don't let the chaos give you any doubts.
It's just interesting.
I never heard the witches being this chatty, but I guess it was because when they attended private classes, they were not the featured speaker. Carlos was.
Note: I heard a rumour from one of the women in the classes that Carol Tiggs was in a mental institution for 10 years. I really didn't think much of it at the time, but now I wonder if that doesn't correspond to don Juan taking her away, as mentioned in these notes.
We still don't know what happens to the Tonal body when we switch worlds, and there's talk of needing another sorcerer to protect your body while you're in dreaming. But then, we also don't know why Carlos gathered up so many women, and whether he put them up to saying some of the things they did. Also, he liked to weave events and names in this world, to those in his books. I think it was an act of intending. Or maybe giving that person a hook to help them out.

***************************************
Report on the Tensegrity Workshop held May 19-21 in Mexico City.

A Tensegrity seminar was given this past weekend in Mexico City (19-21 May) at the Sheraton Maria Isabel hotel in the heart of the city thethree Chaacmools were present along with Florinda, Taisha and Carol Tiggs. The event draw 1,000 people. and it consisted of three evening talks (fridayCarol, Saturday Taisha and Sunday the event was closed by Florinda), and two tensegrity sessions one on saturday for 500 people and another session on sunday for the other 500 people. This sessions started at 9 am and ended at 6 pm following the conferences at 8 pm.

To keep the reports short i'm going to start with the event that took place on friday 19th which corresponded to Carol Tiggs talk. The bigballroom that was rented at the hotel for the ocassion was packedfull with over a thousand people because they let in people without tickets this day. The gruop (Florinda, Taisha, Carol, Kylie, Renata, Nyei and a couple more associates) arrived at 8:30 Carol and a translator sat on the stage and the others remained in the first two rows wich were reserved for them just in front of the stage. Carol started the talk presenting herself to the people and then recited a 'poem' in spanish and then in english wich draw everybody's attention and it went something like this:

Give me god what you still have
Give me what no one asks you for
i dont ask you for health or for success, not even for help
people ask you for all that so often, that you can
not have anything left
Give me god what you still have
Give me what people refuse to accept
i want insecurity and disquietude
i want hardship and strugle with no end
and if you should give them to me... god
give them to me once and for all
cause i will not always find the courage
to ask you for what you still have.

Then she spoke about when she first meet CC at the Alameda park in Mexico City and how DJ hooked her first with a loud 'burp' and then withhis eyes, and let her know that she was a 'double' woman and that CC was energetically the same as her. Then she told us about her disappeareance for more than tenyears from this world and she saud that for her it had been like a dream but that time lost it's significance during that event. "When i was back from these place i found myself in Tucson Arizona ten years later it was hard for me even to recognize the place but i'm sure that DJ knew beforehand that this was going to happen because he made me hide plastic packs with money in different parts of this and other towns wich at the time seem to be absurd for me but at this moment i understood perfectly, so i went and retreived one of these packs and with tis money i went to L.A. and lurked there for a while like in a zombie state until i found out that CC was going to give a lecture at the Phoenix bookstore at Santa Monica and i went and CC saw me and he talk for two hours without knowing what did he said because he was asttonished of seeing me there."

"Carlos and i used to find ourselves in dreaming laying in a bed naked in a strange room, there was also this little girl that cameinto the room shouting not again mami' when things were getting out of hand in this wierd world Carlos had me jump into the bed and shouted 'twirl Carol twirl', and both started twirling and twirling until wewoke up in our bed"

(She also mentioned an american actor from the 30's or 40's who smoked apipe and this character became a regular also in that world where she and CC went in dreaming. this old man wich spoke with a special accent used to call Carol "honey" and also used to call Carlos "shorty")

"..like any other visit to this world it started when we found ourselvesnaked in that bed, suddenly we heard someone coming, carlos got himself inside a closet that was in the room, he wanted to hide from whoever was coming but he was not able to shut the door closed from the inside. At that moment the little girl came into the room shouting as ever 'not again mami', she went directly to the closet and shut the door closed right on carlos's nose. At that moment i heard the footsteps of the old man with the pipe, he entered the room and said "whats up honey", i noticed that he had a newspaper in his hand and i became intrigued with it, i tried deperately to catch a glimpse of it trying to figure out in what language was it written or what was the date on this publication, i knew that Carlos will be very interested in this newspaper because since he is scientifically oriented he would love to corroborate whatever info from this world in "our real world". so i dont know where i got the nerve to snatch the paper from his hand as the old man was leaving the room and hurried to lay it flat on the bed to see its contents. There were color pictures of people but when i fixed my attention to the text i noticed that the characters where not the alphabet we use, they where some sort of "symbols" like spirals, triangles and circles. i was so excited that i wanted Carlos to see it so i went to the closet to let him out but i noticed that there was no door knob or anything to open it i started to get anxious that the oldman would come back when i heard Carlos voice comming from inside the closet instructing me about a dark spot on the floor that i had to step on, i looked down at the floor and i saw the dark spot wich looked like a button, i steped on it and the door opened and Carlos jumped out with feline agility. i showed him the newspaper and he was perplexed all he told me was "this is real Tiggs... this is real" we heard footsteps again and we jumped into the bed and started to twirl like the other times until we woke up in our beds."

"... in order to get in and out of these "other worlds" one must be verysober and in control because if you "hooked" to something in that world (like the newspaper) you will be lost in that world cause you will forget from where you come from and you will end up living and dying in this world. that is why the path of the warrior needs to be impecable because when you become a "navegante" (navigator) you can not afford any mistake. This world was very similar to ours because people also got old and died. actually we saw the little girl grow up."

Carol also revealed that CC is writing another book when she said that"Carlos is naming a chapter of the book he's now writting The return of Carol Tiggs"

"...energetically CC and i have been very distant for the past three years, some time ago Carlos made an energetic jump and maybe thisis what has kept us apart (energetically), but three weeks ago i again woke up in this strange world....."

"...we are (energetically) a strand of energy that is cyclic and it expands through the diferent worlds (which are like the layers ofan onion) and it seems that in this other layer of the onion we (CC and Carol) have found a couple of beings that share this other world as we share this world, and wesee ourselves in this world like humans but this is due our tendency to "anthropomorphisize" but maybe the creatures on this world have a different mold than ours, the point is that our "perception" goes with us even when we go to other "layers of the onion""

She ended her lecture reading the poem again in english and in spanish.

Dios dame lo que aun te queda
Dame lo que nadie te pide
Yo no te pido riquezas ni fortuna
ni siquiera te pido salud
La gente te pide todo eso tan seguido
Que tu ya nada de esto debes tener
Dios dame lo que aun te queda
Dame lo que la gente no quiere aceptar
Quiero inseguridad y desasosiego
Quiero privaciones y lucha sin fin
y si me das todo esto... Oh Dios
Damelo ahora de una vez
porque no siempre tendre la fortaleza
para pedirte lo que aun te queda.

This day the tensigrity workshop got started for half of the people enrolledin the workshop (total of 1,000) it consisted of one morning session from 9am to 1:30pm hours and an afternoon session (3:30pm-6:00pm) for review of the exercises thaught in the morning session. the chacmools arrived alone (Florinda droped in later just to watch) and started a series of warming up exercises and then begun teaching 14 new passes which they said "where specially intended for the peolple who lives in the valley of mexico at this particular time". when people started asking questions about this matter Kylie responded with the next story. "...life is like a river with cristaline water people keep on picking up the stones at the bottom of the river and treasure them without knowing that the most precious part of it is its water wich can not be held or kept all you can do is flow with it..."

"...the water is the Nagual and the stones are the Tonal we must learn to let the Tonal in its place so we can go with theNagual.." after this story people gave a good thought before asking a question. the 14 passes shown were:

1- Using Energy with the Foot
2- The Gate to Stars
3- The Gait of Power
4- Defining the Width of the Energy Body
5- Circle Within a Circle
6- Axing the Energy
7- Up and Low Blow of Energy
8- Amassing Energy
9- The Energy House
10- Storing Energy
11- The Animal Step
12- The Pyramid of Energy
13- The Sorcerers Breath
14- The Sorcerers Window

They finished the afternoon session with a superb performance of four parts of the "tensigrity of affection" by Reni and Nyeimurez.

Evening talk by Taisha Abelar.

When seers "see" they see that "stalkers" have like a "chal" of luminous fibers hanging down from their shoulders,and "dreamers" look like if they had a "hawaiian skirt" of luminous fibers hanging down from their waist.... i am a "stalker". My teachers were a woman named Clara and a man called Emilito, inorder to start my apprenticeship i had first to stop the "voladores" (flyers) from eating my awareness. Don Juan used to say that as we humans keep the chickens in "gallineros" (henhouses) the voladores keepthe humans in "humaneros" to do the same thing that we do to chickens.... acording to the old nahual (DJ) when we are born our luminous egg shines brightly with the light of awareness, but as we grow old and enter thesocial world creatures that share our world called by the "seers" the "voladores" feed of our awarness until they only leave that shine in our luminous egg to the height of our heels (so, they eat us down toour heels), DJ said that this awarness is enough for living in the social world because it is the awarness of self reflection. the problem for the man of knowledge is to find a way to stop the "voladores" from eatingwhatever new awarness grows on top of the heels (because,yes it does grow back). This awareness is so easily eaten by the voladores because of self-pity and a "poor-baby" kind like attitude towards life and ourselves,so one way to stop the "voladores" is thru disciplined acts like recapitulation and tensegrity. by doing these disciplined acts we generate a kind of awareness that is not the kind of what the voladores like so nowyou can begin to grow your awareness past your heels without worry that the "voladores" will "eat" it as long as you behave impecably as a warrior.

Carlos is always on the look for people that have developed their awareness past their heels, and one day somebody told him that there it was a"guruess" (a woman guru) that lived in LA and that was very popular and had "lots" energy and was having success recruiting many people for meditation. Carlos took the three of us (Carol, Florinda and I) tosee this woman, and when we "saw" her we noticed that his awareness was just like everybody else the brightness was only up to her heels, the only different thing that we "saw" was that thiswoman had a larger than normal assemblage point and this resulted on a big big EGO that made her into an egomaniac so that she could belive and also make others belive that she had powers of "enlighting" people. (then with the help of Kylie, Taisha showed a picture of a "volador" taken at the Teotihuacan piramids during the equinox ceremony last year by a friend of theirs. it looked like a human like flying shadow on top of the crowd). This is a particular good place for "voladores" to feed because it is filled with "self-importance" because everybody there is feeling that "his/her energy" is been used to who knows what "saving the world" purpouse. Or maybe they feel so important because they are the receptacles of the "cosmic energy" that is sent by the gods through the heavens to the "choosen ones" that are there for the taking. Also other good places to find "voladores" are funeral homes where people gatter to indulge in self-pittyness and "poor-baby" attitude, is not their fault is just the way it is. Thats why when we come across a situation like this we must be "aware" (through the continuos practice of recapitulation) of what is going on, and not fall prey of our own "self-importance" or "self-pitty", which will make us vulnerable to the "voladores". Thats why we do not need rituals, "cleansings", "protections", "amulets", "talismans", etc. The best possible protection and offering to the spirit that you can make is to get rid of your "self-importance" and to follow and impecable path "a path with a heart" (un camino con coraz 'n).

I lived in the top of some trees at the sorcerers house for two years aspart of my training as a stalker. The stalker is a master on the fixation of the assemblage point into a different place. When you sleep the AP moves naturally, but unless you start "dreaming", for which you need to store some energy through the techniques we've already mentioned, you will not be aware of this movement. Now after you are aware that your AP has moved in order to get advantage of its new position you need to fix it there, and that's stalking. When i lived up in the trees one of the most unusual things that moved my AP to a new position was the fact that i lost the reference point of the "horizon" all i could perceive was the folliage and the sky, the ground was always "down" whereas we normally move when we are stuck to the ground in a four directions system, living in the top of the trees you enter a six direcctions moving system because i was not allowed to touch the ground this made my AP to move and to be fixed in a new position. The AP as the "seers" see it has a brilliant side which in men is oriented towards the outside of the "luminous egg" and in women this bright side of the AP is pointing inward. Due to my living in the top of the trees my AP started to twist outward to man's orientation, when DJ "saw" that he made me do another stalking in order to correct this. He sent me to live to a mexican town where Nelida lived as a whealthy high society woman very well know in this town, i was to became its niece which came to live with her to find a husband. So they thaught me everything about being "femenine", the art of make-up, cooking, good manners, knitting, dancing, to play the piano and even i had french lessons. We used to go to all of the high-society parties and i was displayed as a well educated girl in search of the right man, until one day after six months of arriving to this town i meet a excomunicated priest that was havin deep emotional troubles and all that occurred to me was to hung him from a tree to try to help him. This was a big scandal in town so DJ "saw" that it was time to change the strategy and he told me that since i still wanted to have "everybodies attention" he was going to set a stalking for me that will either cure me or will kill me so he set me up to be a beggar. They started by changing my nice white dress for a "rag" then they put all kind of sticky things in my hair, i remember that emilito came with the idea of putting chewing gum in my hair while Nelida put grease on my skin so i will look darker and dirty. After they had "dress me" to be a beggar DJ called a woman called "Alfonsina" which was a beggar in town he told her that i was crazy and that they could not have me any more with them so DJ gave this woman some money and told her to take care of me. I left with this woman and i remember she told me "you don't seem to talk much eh...that's good i think that we will get along fine..." so we arrived at her home and i was terrified it was the worst dirtiest and smelliest place i ever saw. she lived in a 6 by 6 room made of cardboard and tin, on the dirt floor there where two "petates" ((straw mats)) crawling with insects it was so horrible that i was compelled to leave. I ran to the house but when i got there the servants told me that everybody had gone to a long trip, but that it might be possible to still find them in downtown. I inmediatelly ran to downtown and to my relief i saw Nelida's car stoped in a corner waiting for the red light to change, i got to the car and saw DJ who was driving and begged him to let me off this crazy stunt, i told him that i did not wanted to be a beggar and that all this was going too far that alfonsina's house was a "shit-hole" and that i did not wanted to spend a night in there. DJ looked at me with fixed eyes and told me that it was the design of the spirit for me to do that so that i either succeded or i will not see any of them again, he reached into his pocket and threw me a coin and said "go and find what you have to find and you will see that people will give you their money but they will despise you for what you are, but there's always the other side of the coin if you find somebody that really cares for you then you will have succeded in your task, and you will learn not to be seeking attention for yourself anymore". The light changed and they left, i stood there at the main plaza thinking that i had no option but to go back to alfonsina and play the roll of a beggar impecably without any expectation or concern on when it is going to end or what is going to happen, i was prepared to be a beggar for the rest of my life if that's what the spirit wanted for me. I arrived to alfonsina's house, she was kneeling down in front of the wood stove and was preparing some corn "tortillas" to eat without saying a word she handed me a "tortilla" and i sat down quietly and started to eat. Since we were in a small town i needed to have a history behind me so this is what alfonsina told the people. I was her crazy daughter that used to live in the big city with her father but know the father died and they sent me with her. So i started calling alfonsina "mama" and everyday i came back to the house i will say "hello mama this is what i collected today" and i gave alfonsina everyday whatever i got from the day of begging. Life was hard as a beggar i had to fight other beggars for a good corner to beg. Alfonsina told me that the best places to beg were outside restaurants or sport clubs (gyms), she said that when people is well eaten or well exercised they will give to the poor, also she said that churches were not good places because people already gave to church and that they would prefer to give to the church than to the beggars. Alfonsina also thaught me to carry always a small pack of wood to use it as a shield when i was attacked by other beggars because i was invading their territory, this little pack of wood happened to be very useful for this purpouse. I always liked to go to church, not to beg but to see a very beautiful woman that came everyday, she had something that draw my attention to her. As i became more in depth with my beggar roll i started to hear "people's thoughts" and i could hear thing happening block from where i was. One day i was begging outside church and this beautiful lady came out and spoke to me, she wanted to take me to her home to wash me and to give me clean clothes, but i refused for somtime until want day i remembered what DJ told me about "genuine concern" an i accepted to go to her house. The lady inmediatelly put me into the shower and got rid of the rags i was wearing. As water started to fel in my body and the dirt disapeared from my skin the lady was horrified to the fact that i was a "white girl" she screamed "what have they done to tou !", i was spechless, the lady then gave me a "cardigan" dress and a big sum of money and told me to go back to wherever a came from but to get off the streets. I went back to alfonsina and handing her the money i told her as always "mama, mama look what i collected today". When she looked at me she fainted, when she got back she said "you've been touched by an angel". She became ill and i took her to Nelida's house. There i found DJ, Nelida and all the others. Nelida took alfonsina to her bedroom to give her attention. I stayed at the living room with DJ, i was anxious about what was going to hapen to alfonsina because at that time i knew that i loved her, unconditionally, up to this time i did not know what love was. I tried to relay this to DJ but it seemed that he already knew my feelings and he told me that i had succeded in my task and that i dont needed to go with alfonsina anymore, that alfonsina had a daughter that loved her truly, but to alfonsina this daughter had died today. At this time i knew that in the sorcerers world things come and things go and one has to flow without attachments.

Here is a description of some tensegrity stuff taught at the Mexico City workshop. Kylie and the cousins taught us 20 exercises. She told us that:

(1) Tensegrity should be done every day but should not be made into a routine. The practitioner should apply extreme concentration but should not permit the exercises tobecome routine. She said that doing something repeatedly does not necessarily make it a routine. If you practice assiduously, you will move beyond the need to do them in any order, ever. She said this was one of thecontradictions (paradoxes) of sorcery. She also played on the theme that you start everything in sorcery by doing it formally and then you drop that formalism and move into *fluidity* both mentally and practically. This themewas expressed indirectly throughout the workshop and apparently applies to just about every concept in sorcery.

(2) the order of the exercises is important (to beginners) and was established by CC just prior to the workshop. The order expresses a particular *intent* designedspecially for the people of mexico city. They said to do the exercises in order, even if you have to stop your session and restart later (pick up where you left off). Kylie says that CC can sense what the proper intent ought tobe for the particular group of people in question, and designs the order of exercise for them.

(3) Kylie said that the witches *saw* that the combination of Tensegrity, Recapping and Intent practiced by the CMs, had moved their APs down their backs, around in front,and up inside their bodies (she pointed with her hand to demonstrate the path it took). She said that when the AP is at that position (i.e. inside the body), that any previous damage to the luminous body such as holes, "isunimportant". This plays on the theme that we don't need to worry about some of the images the old nagual gave us (like children leaving holes in our bodies etc.).

(4) Kylie said that we are "each on a solo journey" - you have your fight just as each of us has our fight.

(5) It is impossible [for any of us] to feed off other people's energy.

(6) You only recap what you want to get rid of. Recapping is a very individualistic practice.

(7) We [chacmools] don't want to give advice, we only want to tell you what we've seen.

(8) Intent is a force, Freedom is the goal.

(9) Children should practice Tensegrity. (I personally think this is a great idea.)

(10) always wear shoes, don't do Tensegrity outside. Sorcerer's *see* stuff "going up into the body" from the ground (like "bacteria" and such).

(11) CC is compelled to help everybody if he can.

(12) Kylie took about a dozen questions related to details of the movements. She patiently explained over and over again that the point of doing the exercises is to focusyour attention intensely, and to gain the moments of inner silence that come with that. Most of the details, about starting with the left foot or the right foot or how many breaths to take etc etc are not really very important.

Here is the list of movements:

  1. Shoulder movement warmup
  2. Arm swing warmup

3) Hip thrust warmup

4) Neck warmup

5) Ankle movement (hop) warmup

6) Fluidity Foot version 1

7) Fluidity Foot version 2

8) Stellar Hatch
This is an interesting movement that I had not seen before. You visualize a ball ofenergy between your feet which you pull with your eyes until it "hooks" on your chest. Then you look up as the ball rises until it hits the top of your personal energy region. You want to let the ball out of yourpersonal sphere so that it can travel to the stars and return with "abstract energy". So you slice a hole in the top of your personal energy region and unscrew the "hatch". The ball travels out to the starsand then returns to "splash" all over the back of your neck. You breath in the energy, then screw the hatch closed. Then you allow the ball to go back into the earth where it came from.

9) Step of Power
Exaggerated stepping motion while keeping the weight on one leg and raising the knee high and"stepping" forward to touch the heel and then stepping backwards to touch the toe. Done for each leg a number of times.

10) Drawing the Width of the Energy Body
Exaggerated circle with the foot extending well to the front and thensliding all the way around back while keeping the weight on the other leg.

11) Making the Circle Within the Circle
Making small circles with one foot while balancing the weight on theother leg. Clockwise and then Counterclockwise with each foot and then for each leg.

12) Axing Energy
An interesting martial-arts-style strike. Clap the hands together and hold. "Axe"the air starting at your right shoulder and going to the left hip. Continue holding the hands and make a large CCW circle (holding hands) and end at the right side of the chest. Then "strike" straight ahead at solarplexus level holding the hands clasped. Actually, this would be a better block than a strike I guess.

13) Slap/Hit
A sort of highly modified palm strike at head level followed by a slap straight down ending asthough hitting a table at mid-body level. Done with alternating hands in rapid succession.

14) Amassing Energy

15) Little House of Energy

16) Storing Energy

17) Pawing like a Bull
(this is not their name for it) � Just push your feet back along the ground as though you were a bull about to attack the matador.

18) Pyramid of Energy

19) Sorcerer's Breath

20) Seer's Window
(I don't speak spanish but itsounded like "Las Ventana de Vidente") � This was a very cool movement. Imagine you are a mime and you are surrounded by a soft clay barrier that is preventing you seeing the unknown (the abstract). You want toform a window in the clay with your hands so that you can peer through it into the unknown. You start with a large circular motion of both hands which finishes with a movement like you are spreading a rolled up paper on a tableto form the window sill. Then you form the outside of the window box sides by moving your hands, palms facing each other, slowly, straight up and down about 8 inches apart, three times (if you want a bigger window hold yourhands farther apart ). Then flip each hand one at a time so that the palms are facing opposite directions and form the inside of the window box sides by sliding your hands straight up and down three times slowly. Thenflip your hands palm up and raise your arms, move your hand back and forth to smooth out the upper part of the window box. Then put your hands on the window sill and lean forward slightly and peer out. When Kylie does this shelooks like she is actually leaning on a window sill. Then relax for a moment in the standing position and yell INTENT! 9 times. Or if you speak spanish, you yell Intento, Intento, Intento ...

P.S. Kylie said that a new video would be available Monday.

2018.12.02 17:02 KyletheAngryAncap The flaws with the Cosmological Argument.

Have a quick look around you.
Are you sitting in a chair? Did you ever wonder how that chair got there?
I’m willing to bet you or someone else placed it there. I doubt you created it, though; more likely, a team of people fashioned it out of wood and metal, gave it to another group who transported it to a store or warehouse, where another bunch helped deliver it to you. Where did that first team get their materials, though? The wood was probably harvested from a forest, the metal dug up from a mine. The trees got their nutrients from the soil and the sun. No matter which path you take, both trace back to the Earth or the Sun.
So far, everything we’ve discussed has come from something else. The materials came from elsewhere, and somebody or some process helped shape it. The chair was “caused” by human effort and the proper materials, the tree was “caused” (in a loose sense) by sunshine and nutrients gathering in the right place and the right way. We can do this thought experiment for every object in the universe.
We should be able to do this for the universe itself. It’s a material thing, after all, though perhaps a little larger and more complicated than our chair.
At this point, the chain of causes breaks down. We can’t name anything within the universe as a cause since by definition that’s a part of the universe itself. Any potential cause must come from outside. But what lies outside the universe, in a place we can never hope to explore?
There’s only one being we know of that could live outside the universe. God, after all, is the only possible being with enough power to create a universe, and in countless religions, she does exactly that:
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
(Genesis 1:1, Jewish Old Testament, King James translation)
They say it happened long ago when there were no people nor anything, and when earth and the black sky did not exist “Let us make the earth and the black sky,” he said. He began to study and talk about how both the earth and sky might be made.
(“Myths and tales from the San Carlos Apache”, collected by Pliny Earle Goddard)
Nights, days, weeks and seasons; wind, water, fire and the nether regions—in the midst of these, He established the earth as a home for Dharma. [11]
(from the Sikh religious text “Siri Guru Granth Sahib”, translated by Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa)
Then, at last, slowly uprises Tane-mahuta, the god and father of forests, of birds, and of insects, and he struggles. With his parents; in vain he strives to rend them apart with his hands and arms. Lo, he pauses; his head is now firmly planted on his mother the earth, his feet he raises up and rests against his father the skies, he strains his back and limbs with mighty effort. Now are rent apart Rangi and Papa, and with cries and groans of woe they shriek aloud: ‘Wherefore slay you thus your parents? Why commit you so dreadful a crime as to slay us, as to rend your parents apart? But Tane-mahuta pauses not, he regards not their shrieks and cries; far, far beneath him he presses down the earth; far, far above him he thrusts up the sky.
Therefore, there’s only one possible cause for the universe, and that’s god.
Golden Oldies The Cosmological proof is, without a doubt, the most popular in its class. Surprisingly, it’s also one of the earliest formal arguments we know of, dating back to Plato’s last work, Laws. In the tenth chapter of this dialogue, the wise “Athenian[12] ” scoffs at those who deny the existence of the gods, who claim they were man-made inventions that bend to human whims. To show their folly, he builds a simple proof by cataloging the types of motion that exist in the universe. After ticking off nine, the “Athenian” describes the tenth type, that is capable of moving itself and other objects. He then points out this tenth must be the greatest of all and reaches the core of his argument:
ATHENIAN: I mean this: when one thing changes another, and that another, of such will there be any primary changing element? How can a thing which is moved by another ever be the beginning of change? Impossible. But when the self-moved changes other, and that again other, and thus thousands upon tens of thousands of bodies are set in motion, must not the beginning of all this motion be the change of the self-moving principle?
CLEINIAS: Very true, and I quite agree.
ATHENIAN: Or, to put the question in another way, making answer to ourselves: If, as most of these philosophers have the audacity to affirm, all things were at rest in one mass, which of the above-mentioned principles of motion would first spring up among them?
CLEINIAS: Clearly the self-moving; for there could be no change in them arising out of any external cause; the change must first take place in themselves.
ATHENIAN: Then we must say that self-motion being the origin of all motions, and the first which arises among things at rest as well as among things in motion, is the eldest and mightiest principle of change, and that which is changed by another and yet moves other is second.
From there, the “Athenian” needs only a little bit of hand-waving to turn this primary mover into what he calls a “soul,” but modern readers would recognize as a god.
The argument next appeared roughly 1,300 years later, in Avicenna’s studies of ancient Greek thought, only this time it proved the existence of Allah instead of the Greek gods. Later scholars, most notably the influential Al-Ghazali, would condemn all of Plato and Avicenna’s work as a corrupting influence, but retained the handy Cosmological proof.
Thomas Aquinas independently claimed Cosmological for Christianity some 200 years after Avicenna, in his Summa Theologica. Aquinas’ version shows why this proof continues to be so popular. Not content to merely repeat Plato’s chain of movers, he created three more variations of the same proof and claimed each as a newcomer. One is the chain of causation I used in my introduction to Cosmological; another is a chain of creation, which traces back to the singular creator; and the last is a chain of perfection, leading to the most perfect being possible.
Plato’s original argument has endured because it is so very plastic. To come up with your own variant, all you need is some way to organize every object in the world into a hierarchy.[13] You then claim that an infinitely deep hierarchy is absurd or impossible, then place atop this tower of induction the god of your choice. In the 2,500 years since it left Plato’s mind, Cosmological has been polished down to an invincible single sentence:[14]
You can’t create something from nothing unless you’re a god.
Because I Said So It would help if we had a more formal version of Cosmological to run through point-by-point. The Kalām[15] version of Cosmological, as promoted by William Lane Craig, seems like a good start:
Whatever begins to exist has a cause. The universe began to exist. Therefore, the universe has a cause. We can easily modify this to cover all other versions of Cosmological:
Whatever begins to exist was created has a cause creator. The universe began to exist. A finite number of movers must exist. Therefore, the universe has a cause. a being more perfect than all must exist. Returning to Plato, he rejected the idea of an infinite chain of movers or causes because he didn’t think infinite things existed in the real world. Most thinkers who invoke the Cosmological proof agree, and like Plato stop this infinitely long cascade by placing an infinitely-powerful being in its path. Thus in order to stop an infinite thing from existing in the world… they propose the existence of an infinite thing in the world. Hmm.
And looming over it all is a cherry of a contradiction that Cosmological tries to ignore. If everything has a creator or mover or what-have-you, and god is something, then what created/moved god? After all, this proof rests heavily on the idea that everything can be put into a hierarchy, with no exceptions, but then it turns around and grants one exception. Doesn’t this derail the entire train of thought? If we’re allowed to grant exceptions, what prevents me from saying the universe is an exception too? Philosophers have been fine labeling their god of choice the “First Mover” without any evidence to justify it, so I fail to see why I can’t slap the same label on the universe, given an equal amount of evidence.
[13] Why a hierarchy? Let’s take creation as an example: a lump of clay can be used to create many things, like pots or plates, while those pots or plates have only one creator, the clay. The same one-to-many branching applies to causes, movers, or whatever other mapping you use, and when laid out on paper naturally leads to a hierarchy.
[14] Sorry, that’s a lie. The ancient Greek Parmenides nailed it when he said “ex nihilo nihil fit,” and he pre-dated Plato!
This line of thought brings up another objection, one that was first noted by David Hume.
Hume, who lived from 1711 to 1776, was one of the first philosophers to examine proofs of god with a skeptical eye. As my future self will mention, my thoughts on miracles will be little more than his thoughts with a light dusting of cheese and vinegar. He also examined the Design proof and weighed in on Cosmological as well. While he gives several objections to the last one, I’d like to focus on this one:
… The WHOLE, you say, wants a cause. I answer, that the uniting of these parts into a whole, like the uniting of several distinct counties into one kingdom, or several distinct members into one body, is performed merely by an arbitrary act of mind, and has no influence on the nature of things. Did I show you the particular cause of each individual in a collection of twenty particles of matter, I should think it very unreasonable, should you afterwards ask me, what was the cause of the whole twenty. This is sufficiently explained in explaining the cause of the parts.
As I’ve mentioned before, at the core of Cosmological’s argument is a hierarchy. I can turn this into a visual metaphor by drawing a series of ever-branching pipes:
As we follow the flow down these pipes, we jump from cause to effect, or from mover to moved, or from creator to create, or along whatever relation was used to construct this version of Cosmological.
Since these pipes have a finite length, we can attach a rope to one point, then swim around the pipes until we run out of pipe but still have some rope in hand. We can just as easily picture the rope attached to the top of this pipe hierarchy, and then pull ourselves along it until we reach the very source of all the flow.
Thanks to the rope trick, it’s easy to ignore the branches and just think of it as one pipe with a well-defined beginning. Note that we don’t care about an ending; so long as there’s a beginning, we can always pull ourselves towards it. In contrast, consider a long pipe with no beginning or ending at all.
If we attach the rope and explore, we’ll run out of rope no matter how much swimming we do. Likewise, if we pull ourselves along an attached rope, we’ll still have plenty of places to explore once we’ve reached the end of it.
Cosmological compares these two layouts and rejects the second one. It claims an infinite pipe or chain of relations is an absurd idea, and faced with no other alternative claims the hierarchical version is the only way to go.
But are those two the only possible choices? Consider instead a loop of pipe, like so:
We have a finite length of pipe, which satisfies Cosmological’s rejection of the infinite, and yet at the same time, there’s no beginning or end to this pipe! If we pull ourselves along a rope we find drifting in the current, we’ll again be faced with a void that we’re free to explore. We can use this rope as a measure of how far we are from the “beginning.” If we just float and let the rope spool out, we note that we get further and further away. If instead, we pull ourselves up, our rope gets shorter and shorter until we run out of rope. From this point, everything is after the beginning, since we need to let out some rope to move away from this point. This will come in handy later.
But for now, we’ve found a third way, one that avoids infinite spaces while also avoiding the need to stop at a First Mover. This derails Cosmological, since it was counting on finite space implying a First Mover, and again renders the proof useless.
No doubt you’re skeptical of my metaphor. We know our universe had a definite beginning because we’ve found the evidence in and between the stars. Real life is not a one-dimensional loop, but a four-dimensional expanse of space and time. How can the two be similar?
Very easily, in fact, so long as you think four-dimensionally.
Back in 1905, Albert Einstein published his theory of Special Relativity. In this landmark paper, he proposed that space and time are actually the same things, differing only in what direction you look and that both of these are warped by gravity. It sounds crazy, but one hundred years of observation have backed up Einstein’s claim, and Special Relativity 2.0 (better known as General Relativity) has become one of the most successful theories ever proposed. [A]
The standard metaphor for General Relativity, handed from generation to generation, is the rubber sheet. Plunk a heavy round object, like a bowling ball, on one that’s been suspended in air, and it’ll sink down and pull the sheet with it. Take a smaller round object, say a marble, and roll it across the sheet towards the big one. It’ll go in a straight line until it reaches a bent part of the sheet, where it’ll veer towards the heavy object. Do this well enough, and you can get the marble to orbit the big ball before friction ruins the fun.
If we’re allowed to warp the sheet, however, what’s stopping us from warping it around until it touches itself? We’ve just reached the other standard cosmology metaphor: the rubber balloon. This is usually used to explain the Big Bang, by showing how space stretches and makes everything look like it’s rushing away from you. But we could also think of it as a potential model for how the universe is shaped. It has a finite area, even if you continue to inflate it, but at the same time, you could walk around this shape without ever reaching an edge. This is exactly like the ring of pipes I outlined above, only in two dimensions.
A three-dimensional version is too big for me to visualize, unfortunately. That one-dimensional version is actually in three dimensions; I needed to twist the pipe around so that it would meet itself, and the only way to visualize that from the outside is to invoke another dimension, and I also implied the dimension of time indirectly by having our metaphorical swimmer swim. This diver within the pipe has no way of accessing the second spatial dimension, let along proving it exists, so I haven’t spoiled the metaphor. Likewise, to explain the two-dimensional version I really used four dimensions to get the point across. I need one more dimension to describe a three-dimensional extension, but my poor brain was only designed to work in four dimensions and fails miserably when dealing with five.
And yet that hasn’t stopped similar brains from thinking about higher dimensions. Einstein was able to cope with a four-dimensional space-time by using math as a crutch, and other scientists have used the same trick to think about our world in eleven or more dimensions. To name an example, Stephen Hawking has proposed a theory that would visualize time as a sphere like the Earth, with the “North Pole” label replaced with “Big Bang.”
I was never built to be comfortable with higher dimensions, but that doesn’t rule out their existence. We humans were convinced the world was flat for a very long time until a few of us realized we actually lived on a very, very, very, very big sphere. It only looked flat from our limited perspective. Cosmological makes the mistake of assuming its narrow perspective is the only one, that there must only be two ways to organize the world.
All this talk of spheres brings up another good rebuttal, though. Let’s return to my pipe metaphor again, with the rope attached to the head of Cosmological’s hierarchy. The proof asks us to pull ourselves hand-over-hand up the rope until we run out of space and rope. It then asks what would happen if you tried to take up one more length of rope. It points out this would take you outside the pipe, and that the only thing which could survive out there is a god. Ergo, God exists.
But does that make sense? In our metaphor, we are constrained to follow the pipes and to always have a length of rope greater than or equal to zero. We have no way to get outside out of either limit and yet Cosmological is asking us to think about what’s on the outside. That doesn’t fit into our metaphor at all! David Hume indirectly realized this; since you can’t reach outside of the pipe, once you’ve swum around and reached every point within the pipe, you don’t have any place left to go. If you understand everything within the pipe, you understand everything.
Let’s now extend the metaphor back to the proof. Note that “cause” and “effect” are exclusive; one object cannot be the cause of, and the effect of, another object. The same applies to creation, movement, and any other system used by variations of Cosmological to organize the hierarchy. This not only creates Cosmological’s hierarchy, but it also defines a direction; if we just let things play out naturally then creators create, movers move, and so on. Having established all this, the proof asks us to go against the natural flow and walk back up the hierarchy to the top, being careful never to backtrack. Once it runs out of material for the universe and reaches the pinnacle, it tries to take one more step. The universe defines where we can and cannot go, however, so this is the same as asking us to step outside the universe. The result is nonsense, even though every step before then seems perfectly reasonable.
This assumes a hierarchy, of course, which has a definite start. If our universe is more like a circular pipe or spherical balloon, our choice of start is arbitrary. Fix our metaphorical rope to whatever place you wish to call the start, and then take a stroll. Sometimes the rope will lengthen, sometimes it’ll shorten, but in no direction will you be forced to go beyond the “start.” Even if you make a beeline straight for it, the rope will merely shrink down to nothing then immediately lengthen again, without forcing you to backtrack.
This fits perfectly with our modern view of the universe. Relativity makes time and space interchangeable, so any physical metaphor works equally well with time. While asking “what happened before the universe” seems to be a valid question at first, it’s actually the same as asking “what’s beyond the end of the rope,” “what happened before time existed,” or “what’s North of the North Pole,” all of which are absolute nonsense.
And yet the Cosmological proof requires us to ask those questions and requires us to think of them as perfectly valid, otherwise, it has no place to insert a god. We’ve found another flaw in the proof, only this time there’s no escape hatch.
[A] Whoops, past me screwed this one up. As Rob Grigjanis points out, the Special Relativity papers of 1905 ignored gravity. I also misunderstood spacetime a bit. While space and time are integrated, there’s a difference between purely spatial paths and purely temporal paths through this space. I think one of Brian Cox’s book covers this well for a lay audience.
While Hume has me in a philosophical bent, let me ask a question of my own. Can you prove to me that the universe exists?
It sounds like a trivial question. Shouldn’t the keyboard under my fingers, the photons smacking into my eyeballs, or my ability to think about myself suggest an obvious answer?
But think about it a little more. That keyboard is not the universe, but something that exists within a universe. The same can be said for those photons and even my thoughts.[16] In fact, at no point in my life will I ever interact with the universe, I will only deal with the things contained in it.
We can’t say the same about my keyboard, those photons, or the thoughts bouncing around my skull. I can verify my keyboard exists by looking at it, test my eyes’ ability to detect light by comparing where it says my hands are to what my body has to say about the matter, and hook myself up to a brain scanner and watch the activation patterns of my neurons change over time. These aren’t absolute proofs of existence, true, but by combining multiple lines of evidence I can push my uncertainty down to an arbitrarily low level.
As this simple question demonstrates, the universe is qualitatively different than any physical thing. It is an abstract container, which can only be properly described by referring to the things within it. And yet Cosmological wants us to treat it the same as any other physical object. The sloppy nature of language hides this conflict from us, making the proof seem more rational than it actually is.
It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World All that would be bad enough, but so far all I’ve discussed is a theory. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was also some hard physical evidence that the Cosmological proof fails?
There might be, but it’s going to take a little explaining.
Remember the phrase “you can’t get something from nothing?” Imagine we’re able to break that rule, exactly once. Something would pop out of nowhere, and set off a chain of causes, moves, and so on. This would form its own hierarchy that might intersect the primary one at some point, but would still lead back to separate single “mover.” Applying the Cosmological proof to this tree would result in two gods, one per tree. This is a bit of a problem if you only believe in one god.
Polytheists would be fine with it, but even they have limits. The highest number of gods I’ve heard of is in the 300 million range, for Hinduism, but this seems to be an estimate of historical and forgotten gods instead of the number actively worshipped. Nonetheless, once we get into the trillions of trillions of gods it becomes difficult to keep a straight face. If this exception can happen with no limit, those numbers are easy to reach.
So if we could find some way to get “something from nothing,” we’ve again broken Cosmological. I can think of two: the Casimir Effect has been well-demonstrated but only goes half-way, while Dark Energy is probably a clean break but needs further study to prove this.
Bring two metal flat metal plates really close together, to within a few thousand widths of an atom, then attach a force gauge to at least one. You’ll measure a force tugging the two together, even if there are no electric or magnetic fields to draw them together, and everything is in a complete vacuum. What’s creating the Casimir Effect is likely virtual particles popping out of empty space unevenly.
Wait, empty space is creating particles? It’s strange but true. To explain how I have to tackle a much more fundamental problem: energy.
Philosophers had long thought there was some sort of force or fluid driving life. From the time of Gottfried Leibniz in the 1600s to the work of Lord Kelvin in the late 1800s, this definition became more and more abstract:
There is a fact, or if you wish, a law, governing all natural phenomena that are known to date. There is no known exception to this law—it is exact so far as we know. [17] The law is called the conservation of energy. It states that there is a certain quantity, which we call energy, that does not change in manifold changes which nature undergoes. That is a most abstract idea because it is a mathematical principle; it says that there is a numerical quantity which does not change when something happens. It is not a description of a mechanism or anything concrete; it is just a strange fact that we can calculate some number and when we finish watching nature go through her tricks and calculate the number again, it is the same.
The best metaphor I can think of is money. It used to be a physical thing, a solid coin or token you carried, but in my time it’s been reduced down to a few magnetic disturbances on a computer hard drive in some far-off land. You could exchange some “cash” for tea, chocolate, or a good massage. Likewise, by selling tea or giving a massage you can earn some of this abstract quantity back. Just like energy, money only becomes useful when it’s transformed into an action or something material.
Also like energy, it’s a positive quantity; you cannot have less than zero dollars,[18] and once you reach zero dollars you’re stuck until someone gives you a donation. Forces can front you some funds; if you hold up a ball above the surface of the Earth, it has some money/energy “stored” thanks to gravity, and once you let go it hurriedly starts converting that into motion. The two Relativity theories say that matter itself can also supply some currency, like in a nuclear reactor or radioactive decay.
In empty space, where forces like gravity and magnetism are absent and matter doesn’t exist, you’d expect the bank balance to be firmly at zero. This makes sense; otherwise, you could use empty space to do some useful work, by creating something out of nothing.
There’s another possibility, though. Canada used to have “Vagrancy Laws” which mandated that every citizen must carry a certain amount of change on their person.[19] On the surface, both lead to the same results since you can’t spend below your limit, whether it’s zero or a greater amount. There are some subtle differences, though. For instance, you could temporarily go below the legal amount when consolidating your change at the bank, or during a private card game. If you had no cash on you, however, both scenarios would be impossible. This doesn’t have to break the law, though, so long as you always end up above the limit while in public.
Werner Heisenberg added a key feature to Quantum Mechanics in 1926. His “Uncertainty Principle” states that there are limits to how defined some quantities could be. If you knew the momentum of a particle very well, for instance, you couldn’t be very precise about its location. This perpetual uncertainty is not the fault of the experimenter but built right into the fabric of the cosmos.
The Uncertainty Principle applies to empty space, too. Thus a perfect vacuum cannot have an energy level of zero, because then you would know its value with certainty. In fact, not only must it contain some energy, but that energy must fluctuate too lest it is known with certainty. So while every other physical theory we know of views an empty void as, well, an empty void, Quantum Mechanics views it as a perpetually churning, frothing hotbed of action.
Just like in our metaphor, a non-zero minimum energy has some side-effects. The twin Relativity theories point out that energy and matter are interchangeable, so the fluctuations in a perfect vacuum wind up creating “virtual” particles that live for incredibly short periods of time before popping back out of existence. These don’t have to play by the rules of normal matter, leading to such oddities as negative energy and time travel. The kind and strength of these particles depend on the size of the void, and this leads to the Casimir Effect. The tiny distance between the two metal plates constrains what particles can pop out of the vacuum, yet the open space behind the two plates does not. The pressure of the interior particles can be less than or greater than those of the outside, depending on the exact distance, and thus the two plates are forced together or apart.
This sounds like a clear violation of the Conservation of Energy but remember the money analogy. If everyone has the minimum amount of cash, then everyone’s equally poor and no work can be done. Likewise, all that virtual particle action averages out to a minimum value, which cannot be borrowed against.
Does it make sense to call this an “empty void,” then, if it isn’t empty?
This is where “something from nothing” begins to break down. If we call this void “nothing,” then it clearly is creating “something” in the form of matter and forces. It’s tempting to declare it to be “something” and dodge this bullet, but then what can we call “nothing?” If no such thing exists, then the “something from nothing” argument is meaningless since there must always be something!
There is a way around this counter-argument, though. If we redefine “something” as anything above this minimal vacuum energy, then the contraction goes away. Since these virtual particles are exactly at the minimum, we can dismiss them as averaging out to nothing in the long run. I’m not certain the Casimir Effect can be waved away so easily, but some physicists like Robert Jaffe think it can be explained without needing to invoke virtual particles. This would mean the void is not producing force, and thus not producing “something.” The Casimir Effect is very small and difficult to study, so it could take some time to sort out who’s right.
Or, we could look for the answer in the stars.
The calculations of Edwin Hubble[20] and others before him have been tested, re-tested, and verified via other means. Physicists and astronomers are convinced the universe is growing in size. On this grand a scale, the only force that can affect expansion should be gravity; the weak and strong forces have no effect here, and all charged particles average out to zero electromagnetic force. Gravity may be the weakest force on the block, but it only pulls; over long distances, this adds up and has the effect of pulling the universe back together. We should see the rate of expansion slowing down over time, as a result.
Instead, it is accelerating. Two competing teams first discovered this around 1998, and other observations have backed them up. Something within the universe is pumping out extra force and energy that is pushing everything away from everything else, and yet the source of this isn’t visible from our lonely planet. The prime suspect behind this “Dark Energy” is the energy of empty space, as I just described above. These virtual particles create a force or pressure that drives matter apart, and more virtual particles are created as the size of the universe increases. It’s a tidy explanation, which also vindicates the Casimir Effect as I described it.
It isn’t a perfect explanation, though. For one thing, the energy of empty space is at least 1050 times greater than Dark Energy’s observed value, and could even be a staggering 10120 times too strong. It also leads to problems in the early universe, where this energy suddenly turns into an attractive force, and there are some observations related to the density of our cosmic neighborhood that further muddy things up.
Still, it’s the best explanation we have right now. And no matter what the true answer is, we know that we have something currently within our universe that’s creating energy out of nothing, in clear violation of the “something from nothing” assertion.
Yet again, we find the Cosmological Proof amounts to nothing.

Good Thursday morning. GET READY FOR THROWDOWN THURSDAY. James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intel Committee starts at 10 a.m. Today all the networks and all the cables will be live -- with a few of them offering up live streams for free online. And if James Comey’s much buzzed about statement is any indication of his savvy and willingness to dish, Trump will be more than tweeting today. He’ll be seething. Comey’s statementhttp://bit.ly/2rMG1bK
FOLLOW POLITICO’s two reporters in the hearing room (Hart 216) today: Josh Gerstein (@joshgerstein) and Kyle Cheney (@kyledcheney).
THE PRESIDENT’S THURSDAY -- Trump speaks at the Faith and Freedom Coalition's Road to the Majority Conference at 12:15 p.m., and then will host governors and mayors at the White House for an infrastructure summit at 3:30.
-- NOTES: The president has nothing before his 12:15 speech. Some of the newsiest bits of the hearing will be at the top. THE PRESS BRIEFING TODAY is with Sarah Huckabee Sanders and it will be off camera. Speaker Paul Ryan is holding his weekly press conference at 11:30 a.m. today in the Capitol.
REMEMBER THIS -- Comey isn’t constrained by traditional political considerations. Today will shape his legacy. Our reporting tells us that members of Congress don’t expect him to accuse the president of a crime, but expect him to be extremely open about what transpired behind closed doors. We are told that he will, at times, go beyond what he wrote in his statement.

THE BIG PICTURE -- NYT, A18 -- “Comey’s Political Shrewdness Is on Display in Tussle With Trump,” by Peter Baker and Glenn Thrush: “The morning, at least, seemed to go reasonably well for President Trump. He announced a new F.B.I. director, and two intelligence chiefs told Congress the president had never pressured them to interfere in the investigation into Russian election meddling.
“And then James B. Comey … dropped the hammer. By authorizing the immediate release of the opening statement he plans to give in his much anticipated appearance before a congressional committee on Thursday, he instantly changed the conversation back to his assertion that the president tried to shut down part of the F.B.I. investigation.
“Mr. Trump may be relatively new to Washington, but Mr. Comey is not. A savvy veteran of the capital who has worked in high positions in multiple administrations, he has usually emerged on top in any internal power struggle. And in the month since his dismissal, Mr. Comey has shown why presidents are normally loath to fire F.B.I. directors.” http://nyti.ms/2sGpeXF
THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE sent an email at 9:56 p.m. last night to people around town with the subject line: “Talking Points and Digital Packet for Senate Intelligence Committee Hearing.” The first item under “top takeaway” is “President Trump feels completely and totally vindicated by Former FBI Director James Comey’s opening testimony and is eager to move forward.” It includes a “suggested tweets” section. The RNC talking pointshttp://politi.co/2sGgWPA … WSJ: RNC says they’ve dedicated 60 aides to the pushback effort. http://on.wsj.com/2s6pNx0
THE COUNTER ATTACK -- “West Wing aides fearful of directly attacking Comey: The White House has outsourced its counter-messaging effort during Comey’s testimony, as aides try to avoid more personal legal risk,” by Matt Nussbaum, Josh Dawsey, Darren Samuelsohn and Tara Palmeri: “‘It’s fair to say a storm is coming,’ one administration source said. ‘We’re boarding up the windows for the impending hurricane.’ ... The [RNC] is taking the lead in the response and has prepared a surrogate operation. ... Two former Trump White House officials — former deputy chief of staff Katie Walsh and former communications director Mike Dubke — are helping coordinate the effort. Press secretary Sean Spicer was at the RNC on Wednesday as preparations took place. ... For official comment, the White House has directed all questions to the office of Trump’s outside counsel, Marc Kasowitz.
“Kasowitz’s office, in turn, has directed inquiries to Emily Thall, the law firm’s director of business development and marketing. On Tuesday, Thall declined to comment in a brief conversation with POLITICO about Comey testimony. By Wednesday, inquiries to Thall were met with an automatic response: She would be out of the office on vacation until next week. By Wednesday night, Kasowitz’s firm had retained longtime political communications pro Mark Corallo to handle media inquiries.” http://politi.co/2rY3CYY
QUOTE OF THE DAY – From the quadruple-byline story: “White House aides are trying to keep Trump busy Thursday morning with meetings so he won’t watch TV and tweet during the hearing. ‘But if he wants to watch it, it’s not like we can say, ‘oh, the TV doesn’t work,’’ one official said.”

FUN READ -- “‘Must-See TV’: Free Drinks and Canceled Meetings for Comey’s Testimony,” by NYT’s Mike Grynbaum and Katie Rogers: “By the time details from Mr. Comey’s prepared remarks surfaced on Wednesday ... the hearing had leapt from Beltway curiosity to required viewing, a cliffhanger episode of the nation’s real-life reality show. … At Union Pub in Washington, a sports bar steps from the Hart Senate Office Building, bartenders plan to dole out a free round of Budweisers or bourbon shots every time Mr. Trump blasts out a tweet. For those wondering: No, there will not be a limit. ‘We’ll give out 20 rounds’ if the president tweets 20 times, Ashley Saunders, the bar’s general manager, said.” http://nyti.ms/2rXKSc3
THIS TOWN -- “White-collar lawyers see opportunity in Trump scandals,” by Darren Samuelsohn and Andrew Restuccia: “More than a dozen attorneys and crisis communications specialists have already started working for Trump associates touched by the unfolding Russia scandal, according to a POLITICO tally. People close to the probes say that number is only expected to grow as more than 20 other senior campaign aides and White House officials begin receiving subpoenas, grand jury summons and other requests from special counsel Robert Mueller as well as congressional committees.” http://politi.co/2qYR2Wa
ACROSS THE POND -- BRITISH ELECTION TODAY -- “Polls open in UK election after campaign marred by attacks,” by AP’s Danica Kirka in London: “Polling stations opened across Britain on Thursday for national elections, amid heightened security worries following a series of terror attacks in what one senior police official described as ‘unprecedented times.’ The public is being asked to be alert and to report concerns to police as voters choose 650 lawmakers for the House of Commons. Deputy Assistant Commissioner Lucy D’Orsi acknowledged concerns about Thursday’s general election.” http://apne.ws/2qYLB9t
ANNIE KARNI:THE FIRST FAMILY -- “Melania Trump set to make her D.C. move next week: Staffers hope the first lady will be a stabilizing presence in a White House that's been consumed by scandal and infighting”: “With the school year over, first lady Melania Trump and the couple’s son Barron are expected to finally make their official move to Washington on June 14, according to people familiar with the planning. ... Over the past few weeks, the often stiff-in-her-role first lady has been spending more time in the White House, building out her East Wing staff, preparing the residence for the family and slowly increasing her schedule of public events. ... [T]he June 14 date is seen as a major marker on the White House calendar — when the first lady puts away the full matching set of Louis Vuitton luggage that she travels with and settles in for good.” With cameos by Sam Nunberg, Chris Ruddy and Anita McBridehttp://politi.co/2simMJL

CAPITOL HILL WATCH -- “Trump ‘all in’ on Senate Obamacare repeal,” by Burgess Everett and Josh Dawsey: “At a meeting with congressional leaders on Tuesday, Trump urged Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to follow through on an aggressive timetable for repealing the law in order to quickly turn to tax reform and help avoid a calamitous autumn full of key fiscal deadlines, according to multiple sources familiar with the meeting.” http://politi.co/2rOpxzU
-- IT’S IMPORTANT TO NOTE: Senators don’t like being told by Trump, or really any president, about how to run the Senate. While Republican senators have been working their way through how to pass a health care bill, GOPers across the ideological spectrum have been pessimistic about legislation actually passing. But most insiders note: don’t count out Mitch McConnell.

-- THE NRCC reported another $545,541 in spending against Jon Ossoff in Georgia’s 6th congressional district.
DRAIN THE SWAMP! -- “Trump White House lacks waivers for longtime lobbyists: Critics are questioning whether White House officials with broad portfolios can truly steer clear of conflicts of interest,” by Theo Meyer: “At least a half-dozen former lobbyists are working in President Donald Trump’s White House even though they haven’t received waivers from the administration’s ethics rules, raising questions about how much the rules do to prevent conflicts of interest. ...
“The Trump administration has granted exemptions from the rules for a handful of staffers, as President Barack Obama’s administration did. But at least six former lobbyists now working in the White House haven’t received such waivers, meaning they must recuse themselves internally from any issue where they have conflicts, according to the White House. ... Five of the lobbyists POLITICO identified who haven’t received waivers work in Pence’s office.” http://politi.co/2sicWYj
NEW TIME COVER -- “The Swamp Hotel: How Trump’s D.C. outpost became a dealmaker’s paradise for diplomats, lobbyists and insiders,” by Alex Altman: “[The hotel] is the new town square in Donald Trump’s Washington. Tourists perch on the blue velvet sofas in the lobby, snapping cell-phone pictures as power players stream across the dark marble floors and cream carpets: international businessmen, Republican operatives, wealthy donors, foreign diplomats, former Trump campaign aides, the occasional Administration official. That’s partly because a President who once promised to ‘drain the swamp’ of influence peddling now owns the city’s newest bog.” http://ti.me/2s72K5i ... See the coverhttp://bit.ly/2s5AkbA
HISTORY LESSON -- “The Greatest Hearings in American History: James Comey’s testimony joins the pantheon of dramatic congressional moments,” by Joshua Zeitz in POLITICO Magazine: “This isn’t the first – and it won’t be the last – time that congressional testimony captured the nation’s imagination. From the Army-McCarthy hearings of 1954 to the Iran Contra hearings in 1987, House and Senate committees have held ordinary citizens in rapt attention. ... Comey’s testimony is in this sense an absolutely American phenomenon.” http://politi.co/2rY5nFI
NICK SCHMIDLE in The New Yorker, “James Comey’s Intellectual History”: “Comey has told associates that he never tried to lure Trump into improprieties. ‘It wasn’t like Jim was going to the Mob boss, all wired up, trying to secretly extract a confession,’ one associate told me. Yet, in Comey’s view, Trump’s behavior toward him repeatedly crossed the line, making him ‘an obstructor.’ Based on Comey’s prepared remarks, his Senate testimony will lay the basis for this legal claim, without explicitly making the charge. His testimony is likely to be supremely assured. A senior intelligence official said of Comey, ‘He likes the stage. He takes politicians’ questions apart. He loves the fact that he’s smarter than them.’” http://bit.ly/2sGe9pz
RICH LOWRY, “Comey’s fizzle”: “The document has considerable entertainment value in its dead-pan account of a profound mismatch, a Washington buddy movie gone bad. It’s a tale of a bureaucratically agile and self-serving careerist matched against an institutionally ignorant and self-serving outsider. One is careful, memorializing every conversation and calculating his every more; the other is blundering around in the dark — and eventually blows the whole thing up.” http://politi.co/2rNXfFB

MEDIAWATCH -- Greg “Gianforte to give $50,000 to press freedom group after assaulting reporter,” by Hadas Gold: “‘I write to express my sincere apology for my conduct on the evening of May 24. My physical response to your legitimate question was unprofessional, unacceptable, and unlawful,’ Gianforte (R-Mont.) wrote in a letter [to Ben Jacobs]. ‘As both a candidate for office and a public official, I should be held to a high standard in my interactions with the press and the public.

2017.04.27 00:07 duralexglass Super 2013 interview

One of the classic interviews. Read original here http://www.mvremix.com/urban/interviews/cherrywine.shtml
Ishmael Butler aka Cherrywine (formally known as Butterfly from the group Digable Planets) has traveled a long road and has come full circle in both his life and his music career. In the early/mid 90�s, his jazz-influenced group Digable Planets released 2 very different LPs, won a Grammy (for Best Rap Performance By A Group), and traveled all over the world. Their breakthrough hit single �Cool Like That� was one of the first jazz/rap fusion songs. The hypnotic bass lines, peaceful expressions, cool feelings, and spaced-out lyrics made Digable Planets very accessible to both jazz fans and hip-hop fans. In a time when the violent music of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg was America�s representation of rap music, the debut Digable Planets LP �Reachin: A New Refutation Of Time And Space� had everybody cooling out, listening to poetry, and thinking about philosophy, Black culture, and existentialism. After winning a Grammy, Digable Planets released the very militant LP �Blowout Comb� that had an intense pro-Black message. Even though the LP had deep, thick beats and bass lines along with guest appearances by Guru of Gangstarr and Jeru The Damaja, �Blowout Comb� did not sell as well as their debut LP. After a break up in 1995, fellow �insect� Doodlebug (aka Cee Knowledge) released an album but nobody heard from Ish or Mecca (Ladybug). Ish did show up at the end of Camp Lo�s video for �Luchini / Swing� but that was it. Even though his performance on Camp Lo�s �Swing� was impeccable, fans yearned for more like he was heroin.
Every once in a while, fans would hear news that Ish was working on a solo hip-hop album but those albums were never released. Fast forward to 2003: While many people may have forgot about Digable Planets, Ishmael Butler moved to Seattle, WA and formed his own band.
Now known as Cherrywine, Ish and his band create cool, funky music with wild electronic synths, wah-wah guitars, and electro-funk beats. Even though it has a hip-hop feel, Cherrywine sings much more instead of rapping. Their debut LP �Bright Black� (released on Babygrande Records / D-Cide Records) is 11 songs of emotional, funky, pimped-out grooves. Once again, Ish has released something different. The final track �All I Can Do� has Ishmael singing over an acoustic guitar. On �Bright Black�, the lyrics are a little more abstract in places with subjects ranging from lying, love, sex, drugs, cars, money, and romance.
On a hot weeknight in July, I spoke to Ishmael Butler in a hotel room in New York City. Without a doubt, he�s one cool cat. After almost 10 years since his last release, Ishmael Butler aka Cherrywine has returned with an entire band to back him up. Put your shades on, cool out, get out your fly clothes, and sip your Cherrywine, because everyone is down to get down. We all look fly and we�re feeling so high. Get ready because Ishmael Butler is one of the coolest motherf*ckers in music today�
MVRemix: What goes on?
Cherrywine: I'm good, man! Everything is cool, man! New York City! I'm hanging out in the room, getting ready to do S.O.B.'s. I'm just chilling.
MVRemix: The debut Cherrywine album is called 'Bright Black'. Tell us about it? Who is on it? Who produced it?
Cherrywine: 'Bright Black' is 11 songs. Me, I'm Cherrywine. Thaddeus Turner on guitar. Tugboat on bass. My man, Bubba Jones is playing a little guitar too. We recorded it in Seattle and mixed it in New York. As we say in Seattle about anything that's cool, it's real music.
MVRemix: What is the meaning behind the title 'Bright Black'?
Cherrywine: It's like some Mark Rothko stuff� illumination coming from within, breaking up the stereotypes of Black being dark but not in some kind of corny clich� way. It's more like some real physical illumination, black illumination. Cool things, beautiful things, and substantial stuff. The rhythmic thing. Everything about being Black.
MVRemix: How did you get the name Cherrywine? What's the meaning behind the name?
Cherrywine: I don't really discuss the meaning of that, bro.
MVRemix: Do you have a favorite song on 'Bright Black?
Cherrywine: It changes probably every 2-3 days, depending how much I listen to it. The last time I listened to it, I loved the last song, 'All I Can Do'. It's a short song with guitar.
MVRemix: Why did you choose Babygrande and D-Cide Records?
Cherrywine: They were interested and sincere about it. They wanted to put the record out. They let me do what I felt like doing. I liked them a lot. They seemed like they like me too, so, I went ahead with it.
MVRemix: Do you go into the studio with pre-written rhymes, lyrics and themes or do you hear the beat first and write then and there? Do songs come from improvisation more often than not?
Cherrywine: If I see something in the world that makes me write down a sentence or if I have an idea or image that I want to remember, I have a book that is filled with that stuff. So, I go into the studio, or wherever. I got equipment in my house like that. It's almost like it's a collage of my memories, my thoughts, my ideas, and my plans. It's just a musical collage of� I don't even know how much time. There is always some spontaneity. There's a lot of free styling going on. I always want to feel the music and see what it makes me want to say.
MVRemix: What emcee/group or musician would you like to collaborate with in the future?
Cherrywine: I would like collaborate with Beyonce. I don't know, man.
MVRemix: After Digable Planets, you moved from New York to Seattle. Why? How did this move affect you and your music?
Cherrywine: Well, I just moved to Seattle about a year and a half ago. I stayed in New York long after the group (Digable Planets) broke up. Seattle's cool. It's relaxed with nice people. There's a lot more nature with the atmosphere and the landscapes. So, you get to think about less. You get to slow your pace down and get a little more time because transit time and waiting time is cut down. You slow down, man. You get more time to do stuff. It's pretty.
MVRemix: What is a Spiddyock?
Cherrywine: My father is from West Philly and went to West Philly High School. He was born in 1944 and went to high school in the 50's. That was what they called cats who listened to jazz and had a certain casual mod type of dress code. That was the type of dude he was and that was the slang name they had for them. It was like the equivalent of jocks and nerds.
MVRemix: It has almost been 10 years since Digable Planets released their last album 'Blowout Comb'. Why did it take so long for you to do another LP after Digable Planets? What took you so long?
Cherrywine: Well, if you can imagine your life, personally, things that occur in it, they take place over, what seems like to you, both really long and extremely short periods of time. In the moment, you have all of these plans, wishes, and dreams but you also have things to do in the moment. When you think about your plans, it seems like a long time. But, when you are doing them, the time is going by at breakneck lightning speed. I was just living life, man. I did a couple of different albums for different labels and they didn't work out. The albums never came out. Music and everything continued but the business part of it slowed and f*cked up.
MVRemix: So, you have all of these recordings, finished albums, and they are just sitting on a shelf somewhere?
Cherrywine: Yeah. It's not really that simple to release them. This one record I did on a label, the label owns it. You know? They paid for the production of it. They have to decide to put out or some sh*t. It just drags like that in the business.
MVRemix: Cocaine is mentioned quite often in the song 'See For Miles'. Is there a lot of cocaine in Seattle?
Cherrywine: I don't know. I don't really do a lot of that. The song ('See For Miles') was inspired by those years that Miles Davis stopped playing, and was up in his house just getting high. It comes from what I read in the book and also, some of the rumors I heard in the world of music from some of the cats that I have met. It's about that and instant gratification, and reclusiveness. It's about people having emotional leverage on people who they claim that they love. Entrapment, claustrophobia, and even September 11th.
MVRemix: What was it about the word 'cocaine' that you loved so much?
Cherrywine: It's so white! You know what I'm saying? When you think of it in that context, the song becomes real, real, real, real, real, real heavy because of everything that has to do with whiteness.
MVRemix: What was the last incident of racism you experienced?
Cherrywine: A couple of minutes ago. I was standing in the hotel lobby about a minute ago and I was talking on the phone. The people at the front desk didn't really understand that I was just talking on the phone and wasn't ready to approach the desk or need help yet. So, they all stood around, really frozen, wondering why this Black man was standing in their lobby just talking on the cell phone. Loads of people asked 'Can I help you?' and they kept on asking each other if they knew who I was talking to and what I was talking about. I asked them 'What made you think that you could help me out because I was talking on the phone?' That happened just 5 minutes ago. I felt like I was just on CSI Hotel Lobby.
MVRemix: How did the Digable Planets come together?
Cherrywine: I used to ride up to New York, Philly, DC, and Jersey to all these different parties, step shows, and concerts. Whatever it was, I was there. Every time I would be somewhere, I would see this cat, Knowledge (C-Know The Doodlebug). When I saw his face, I would think to myself 'Damn! This cat is everywhere!' Finally, I saw him in Philly, and then, we talked and stuff. He hustled. He knew how to throw a party and had a couple of groups. We hooked up like that. At the time, he knew Mecca (Ladybug) and we all just hooked it up. We started writing rhymes and it turned into a style. That's just how it came about, man.
MVRemix: When was the last time you spoke to Doodlebug or Ladybug? Do you still speak to them?
Cherrywine: I speak to Doodlebug.
MVRemix: On 'Blowout Comb', you had an incredible track called 'Borough Check' with Guru of Gangstarr. How did you hook up with him and what was that collaboration like?
Cherrywine: Once again, that was Knowledge, man. He used to be out at a lot of parties and sht, with him and Guru. He was cool with Jeru and Guru. We all kind of lived in the same neighborhood in BK and we always ran together. We went on tour through Europe with Guru for our 'Reachin' album because he had the 'Jazzmatazz' album out at the time. We did a lot of European dates. Actually, my mom and him got cool down in Brazil. They were hanging together at a lot of the after parties. It was Guru, Big Shug, and my mom. Guru is a real cat, a cool ngga. He's a n*gga I definitely looked up to. Everything was blessed. For him to come and do music with us was a blessing. He was very professional. It was obvious that he had many strong years in the studio. His etiquette was real street, but at the same time, he was all about business and completion to the optimum effect. That was just cool to see. As a group, Gangstarr has never floundered.
MVRemix: The album 'Blowout Comb' was very revolutionary in spirit and political in many ways. Even though Cherrywine is not very political, militant, or revolutionary in the lyrical sense, do you still consider yourself an functioning activist?
Cherrywine: Yeah, I think that I'm much less rhetorical and much more economical with my words. Even though the subject matter in my stories seem more literal, it's more abstract because it represents a wider interpretation of sugar and poison of life.
MVRemix: Cherrywine is not considered straight hip-hop because it has more singing and a there is a full band involved. How have hip-hop heads reacted?
Cherrywine: The thing about it, as far as that goes, I'm in my 30's. When I became of age, like in my teens, which are real formative years, it was straight R&B and Jazz. I got that from my pops. I loved everything from that genre because my people were eclectic. But the years when I was most respondent were the early days of hip-hop. That's what I am! Whatever happens, subsequently, musically, I don't give a f*ck, the song 'All I Can Do' is a hip-hop track. It only has an acoustic guitar and me singing. That's what it's really like.
MVRemix: On 'Bright Black', you have a song called 'Anchorman's Blues' about how sometimes people feel that they have to lie to the person they love in order not to hurt them. Where did the title come from?
Cherrywine: I was thinking about my ngga Roger Mudd and the days when cats like that get calls from high places, and get told what to say. That's heartbreaking for them to do. Me lying to histories of people. It was just to parallel two things: When you have to lie to somebody you love or when you have to lie to everybody for crazy reasons. The reasons are always bullsht. N*ggas are always saying 'This is why�', but in the end, it's just so you don't look like a bad person.
MVRemix: Digable Planets got the Grammy for Best Rap Performance By A Group. How did winning the Grammy affect the group?
Cherrywine: Well, when you win the Grammy, you get to do a couple of things. You don't have to lobby for yourself as much and you get to charge more money for the sht that you do. At that time, you had the negative connotation of the Grammy in the hip-hop world so, it kind of changed things. At that time, nggas didn't take no bullsh*t in hip-hop. Success ain't like it is now. Just because you have money, your record is suppose to be hot. So, the atmosphere back then was different. It kind of bent us in a foul direction too.
MVRemix: What led to the break-up of Digable Planets?
Cherrywine: I don't know, man. Say you're 32 and a little after high school, you had a girlfriend. Back then, you probably thought you were going to get married to her or some sht like that. Something went wrong a long the way. It doesn't mean you hate her or nothing but you aren't about to get back together. You know what I mean? We loved each other. We liked each other. We were happy to be doing what we were doing but something wasn't right. A lot of things have to be right for 3 motherfckers to stay together. We weren't the type of people that were like 'We're making money, we need to do this just because�' It was real like that. Money didn't matter. If you weren't happy, you shouldn't stay that way. We liked each other enough to know that was real.
MVRemix: What do you think hip-hop or music (in general) needs these days?
Cherrywine: It's lacking that care-free, that kind of Bob Dylan, that kind of Myles Davis, that kind of Mark The 45 King, early hip-hop feel. I don't give a fck about nothing but trying to have the baddest music out that doesn't sound like your sht. Remember the word 'bitin'? Remember that used to be a real word? It meant that if somebody else had anything that remotely sounded like something you just did, they got their sht thrown in the trash. It kept the barometric pressure down. We policed sht. You couldn't be a cornball, man! That made hip-hop rich! It made it real abundant and un-accessible to anybody else. That's why they thought it wouldn't last until they got a hold of it. Now, it has got to be bullsht. Now that they have it, it really is. It's crazy now. Of course I like a lot of new sht because it's good sht. Nggas are always going to make hot beats and say dope sh*t. That's what it is lacking, I think.
MVRemix: Word association time. I'm going to say a name of a group/emcee and you say the first word that pops in your head. So, if I say 'Chuck D', you may say 'Revolution'. Okay?
Cherrywine: I got you! I liked the interview man! There's a girl waiting to interview me downstairs in the lobby but I liked how this was going.
MVRemix: Gangstarr
Cherrywine: The best.
MVRemix: Curtis Mayfield
Cherrywine: Jesus.
MVRemix: Gil-Scott Heron
Cherrywine: An angel.
MVRemix: Dead Prez
Cherrywine: Real.
MVRemix: Jay-Z
Cherrywine: Wow.
MVRemix: Eminem
Cherrywine: Pffff. Come on, man.
MVRemix: George Bush
Cherrywine: Old man.
MVRemix: What is the biggest mistake that you made in your career?
Cherrywine: I don't look at it like that because I don't guide it like that. My career is a real amazing by product of what I'm meant to do. It's almost like coincidences. I don't really pursue that music business sh*t. You got to understand. Boom! I know I need to get money. I want to buy that, I want to buy this� once I take care of these people. That's easy. It's a hustling thing, man, and that's all it is. If I need to do stuff to make more money, then I'll do it but it will never be at the expense of me doing always what I want to do. I just want to make music.
MVRemix: What are some major misconceptions that people have of you?
Cherrywine: I think that they think that I'm so neo-soul type of n*gga. That's the biggest misconception and that one is a pretty wide one too.
MVRemix: What is next in the future for Ish and Cherrywine? Is Cherrywine just a side project?
Cherrywine: I think that I feel like an author now. I have concepts that represent my life, and I project them onto non-fictional stories. I'm talking about non-fiction in the Richard Right sort of way. Even when it's fantastic, it's fantastic on some Octavio Butler kind of sht. It's fantasy but it's still about some real sht. I think I do pieces. Different sh*t has different names. It's like episodes.
MVRemix: Any final words for the people who are reading this?
Cherrywine: I'll say a nice rap for you about Seattle: We say 'safe to say' / We say 'say that then' / The homies just get on the streets and then, they go back in / He had a lick against the law but he didn't win / Come home, get his gat, and try again / 88 Monte Carlos with the shiny rims / Look like Aristotle down in Kingston with the bank's lotto / Lick a shot, let your bling hang / Pop a bottle / Fck a cop / Do your thing, thing / That's the motto / 23rd, Union, Jackson, Cherry Street, MLK, Rainy, and Henderson / Young dudes and the old thugs gangster-ing / Balling like Carmello / Calling all the fresh sht!

2017.02.22 04:58 cuavas MAME 0.183 has been released!

MAME 0.183

Hi everyone! It’s been a busy month for MAME development, and we’ve got a whole lot of surprises to unwrap today as we continue to celebrate twenty years of MAME. First up, we’ve added some incredibly rare systems to MAME. Omega is an Arkanoid-inspired arcade game with a production run of about ten boards. Dodge Man is a rare Omori title from 1983. The vertical version of Flash Boy, a DECO Cassette title that borrows more than a little from a well known anime is another very rare game that was at risk of becoming nothing but a memory. Westinghouse Test Console #5 is possibly a one-of-a-kind wire-wrapped prototype machine for field-programming some kind of interlocking equipment (it has a rude easter egg – press XTRAN in calculator mode to see it). Less rare, but still awesome, are arcade titles Galaxy Games StarPak 3, Sega Sonic Cosmo Fighter, and a U.S. release of Puzznic with the digitised photos intact.
This release adds support for a number of electronic toys/handheld games, including Atari’s Touch Me (a clone of Simon, which is itself a clone of an Atari arcade game), GAF Melody Madness, Lakeside Le Boom, and with possibly the most awesome title if not gameplay, LJN’s I Took a Lickin’ From a Chicken. Many of these games have colourful, clickable artwork. MAME is dedicated to preserving more than just video games, and these systems are great examples of some of the other experiences you can relive through emulation.
If you use MAME’s computer emulation and have been frustrated by modifiers not working properly in natural keyboard mode, you’ll be pleased to know that this release addresses that. Natural keyboard mode now works properly with many more systems, including Amiga, Sun and RM Nimbus. Speaking of Amiga, we’ve emulated a 3rd-party variant of the Amiga 1200 keyboard and added support for many different language variants, so chances are you’ll be able to use keyboard that matches your Workbench language. And speaking of keyboards, the Zorba keyboard now works properly, so you can try out one of the last luggable CP/M machines.
Other improvements include fixing the crash on encountering invalid cheats, allowing multi-part software list entries to load each part on the correct interface, emulation of the Poly-Play light organ, a brand new preliminary Interpro 2800 driver and Clipper CPU core, support for VIC-20 and C64 speech synthesiser cartridges, support for the Osborne-1 Nuevo Video 80-column modification, protection MCU emulation in Bad Dudes vs. Dragonninja and Bouncing Balls, audio improvements to a number of supported games, and optimisation of the netlist emulation.
Some of these improvements might seem inconsequential, or apply to systems you don’t use, but they often lie in common components used by many other systems. For example, the Amiga 1200 and Zorba keyboards use the same MCU family used in a lot of arcade games published by Taito. The same change that fixes the Zorba keyboard also fixes enemy spawning and timing in Xain'd Sleena. The Nuevo Video board uses a common Motorola CRT controller, so improvements made to support it stand to benefit a lot of other systems.
Of course there are plenty of other improvements not listed here, and you can read all about them in the whatsnew.txt file, or grab the source or Windows binaries from the download page and join in our 20th anniversary celebration.
