  • Tech help needed: Problem with Windows Live MovieMaker 2011

    Never used this program before, but I am trying to learn it for a project and have been watching tutorials on youtube. My problem is that the preview screen on the left side of my screen doesn't work, either for individual images on the right side of the screen, or when I try to run the images as a movie. All I get is a black screen, although I can hear the soundtrack. I have searched online and learned that this has not been an uncommon problem for WLMM 2011 (or 2012, apparently), as there are many discussions about it...
  • Fist bump: Furious reactions to Obama's joyful 5-hour golf game . . .

    Daily Mail Online ^ | August 21, 2014 | David Martosko, U.S. Political Editor
    President Barack Obama reacted to the on-camera slaying of photojournalist James Foley for five minutes on Wednesday, telling a global audience that 'when people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done.' Minutes later he began a five-hour round at Farm Neck Golf Course on Martha's Vineyard for his seventh visit to the links, so far, during a vacation that began August 9. The decision brought a chorus of condemnation from TV commentators, journalists, conservative partisans and Twitter denizens – and even an unintentional slap from the left-leaning New York Times. Retired U.S. Army Lieutenant...

    Washington Times ^ | August 14, 2014 | Joe Piscopo
    I’m a Democrat. I’ve been a Democrat my entire life. I used to utter those two sentences with pride and would shout them from the highest rooftops. Now, I’m almost embarrassed to say those words. I almost can’t articulate my political affiliation in public (or on the radio) without immediately offering an apology and an explanation. How did I get here?

    FULL INSIDE STORY! Gripped by dementia, the beloved TV star is wasting away and is said to be on her deathbed. Sadly, Mary’s battle with diabetes, kidney and heart disease – as well as Alzheimer’s and dementia-related symptoms – is nearing an end, sources say. With her eyesight and hearing nearly gone, the 77 year old’s remaining strength is fading, following a series of devastating emotional and physical blows, according to insiders. But now family and friends are joining Mary’s devoted third husband, Dr. Robert Levine, at her bedside in the couple’s Connecticut mansion, multiple sources tell The ENQUIRER. “Mary...

    Daily Beast ^ | August 4, 2014
    The Senate minority leader, long reviled among many on the right for what they see as kowtowing to Democrats, is in a tough race for his seat—and in trouble with the Tea Party. If Alison Lundergan Grimes pulls off an upset victory over Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in November, she may have Tea Partiers to thank. But don’t expect conservative voters to rally to Grimes—they simply aren't getting behind McConnell. Although the five-term Republican ended up winning a a tough primary challenge from businessman Matt Bevin handily, the race was one of the most vicious and ugly this cycle,...

    I am planning to develop an online music instruction course which I intend to make available online to paying subscribers. The content will be a combination of text, narration, videos/visual images with and without animation, and music audio tracks which will synch with the video/visual imagery. I will not be using videos of myself in the course material. When I first got the idea for this series of lessons, I was thinking in terms of making and selling it as a DVD, but now I think that idea is obsolete. Ideally, a user should only need a laptop or tablet...

    The effects of drug use may be gradual but for teens who fall prey to the addictive nature of illicit substances, the long-term impact can be profound. The Partnership at Drugfree.org reveals in a clever time-lapse PSA both the physical and intellectual damage that comes from adolescent drug use. In “Stop the Damage,” a fresh-faced kid begins by talking about how the prefrontal cortex--that part of the brain that controls cognitive function, such as memory, thinking, and learning--is still maturing in an adolescent brain. Taking drugs at that time alters key motivational circuits, forever changing the adult that kid was...

    I don't get it. Why isn't this Mexico's job? It's Mexico that allowed these kids through their southern border. I get that the Obama administration wants to destroy our nation by getting rid of our border and importing future Democrat voters. But can someone please explain why no conservatives, or even RINOs, are taking the position that this is Mexico's problem, and demanding that it absorb this population which at least shares with them a common language (for the most part)? And why isn't the United States demanding money from Mexico and every Central American country of origin to pay...

    Fox News ^ | February 10, 2014
    In this clip, aired four months ago, Geraldo scolds Bill O'Reilly for "stripping Obama of his majesty" during the Superbowl Sunday interview. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYLAG0V51_c In passionately defending Obama's "majesty," Geraldo says it's because Obama "is a direct descendent of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and Dwight Eisenhower." Perhaps Geraldo is too ignorant to know that in accordance with the Constitution, the founders deliberately decided against addressing President Washington as "Your Majesty" (along with other absurdly imperial titles), much to Washington's relief. That's why Washington and all presidents since have been officially called "Mr. President."

    OK -- I just saw the movie "America." Needless to say, I think all conservatives should see it. But we need to do more than preach to the choir. Because this movie not only refutes the 30-year libel and slander of our great nation by the Zinn/Alinsky left, but it also shines the spotlight on Hillary's and Obama's efforts to destroy our nation, by NAME -- all the while presenting a powerful positive message about who we are and what it really means to be an American. So I think we need to put this important film in the face...

    Candidates for House GOP majority whip are pushing their cases hard in the last hours of the race, each promising to heal a party scarred by infighting and at the same time wrangle the conference into a united voting bloc. In the run-up to Thursday’s pivotal vote, Rep. Peter Roskam, currently chief deputy whip, is touting himself as the most experienced candidate — and the only one who will be a disciplinarian toward rambunctious members who vote out of step with leadership. The Illinois congressman said he would punish members who vote against leaders’ priorities, according to a member familiar...

    A fed up Michelle Obama is outraged that her husband’s widely criticized prisoner exchange could wreck her political ambitions – and she’s blasted him as an “idiot,” say sources. “Michelle was so furious about the public backlash that she sarcastically asked him, ‘Whose side are you on?’” revealed a Washington insider. “She not only believes he made a dumb decision but also thinks it will negatively affect her post-White House career. “She’s contemplating a run for Senate in her home state of Illinois, but after the prisoner exchange, she said it looks like the only speeches she’ll be making now...

    They’ve given John Boehner constant headaches during his three years as speaker. Now, Boehner’s friends are trying to make sure that a small pocket of tea-party-aligned Republicans won’t have a chance to derail his speakership next year. And if they try, they could be punished. A group of his closest allies — including fellow Ohio Republicans like Pat Tiberi — are discussing tactics such as trying to change GOP Conference rules to punish members who do not support the party’s nominee during a floor vote. A lawmaker who bucks the Republicans’ choice for speaker could lose committee assignments — or...

    According to Chris Matthews, the American Revolution is an example of liberalism in action, on par with fighting for gay marriage. In a new Lean Forward ad, the Hardball host appeared at Philadelphia's Independence Hall. Matthews equated, "It took 22 months of men debating in this room to achieve the Declaration of Independence. Progressive change takes time." Claiming the ending of slavery as a "progressive" cause, Matthews continued, "Abolition would take a great Civil War, but it came." Of course, it was the Republican President Abraham Lincoln and Republicans in Congress who freed the slaves and then passed the 13th,...

    Adult Swim via Mediaite ^ | April 30, 2014 | Josh Feldman
    Now that the Donald Sterling fracas is starting to fade from public consciousness, it’s an excellent time for the internet parodies to start pouring in. An early frontrunner for best mash-up is something cooked up by Adult Swim, a video combining Sterling’s now-infamous racist rant and the awkwardness of Seinfeld. A scene featuring George Costanza on the receiving end of another George Steinbrenner lecture (remember, George worked for the New York Yankees for a while) is repurposed for that Costanza is confusedly reacting to Sterling lecturing him about not publicly associating with black people. Another interesting factoid: this is also...

Kiefer Sutherland was seen shooting scenes for the new 24 series Live Another Day in London on Monday, with glimpses from the set showing that the 12-part season will be more action-packed and exciting than ever. The action picks up as Kiefer's character Jack is a fugitive in the capital and on the run from the CIA. [Full story and photos at link.]

    Most of us don’t grasp the variety of animals species that inhabit the Earth today, and some even get surprised as they find out there’s an animal they haven’t heard of before. But seriously now – out of 1,367,555[1] identified non-insect animal species that live on Earth today, how do you expect to know every single one of them? To put it into perspective, take into account that this number represents only 1% of all animal species that ever lived! Scientists themselves keep discovering new species every year and admit that modern science is not familiar with all existing animals....

  • Classical Music Lovers: Stravinsky "Rite of Spring" Piano Duet (Extraordinary)

    01/09/2014 7:21:35 AM PST · by Maceman · 9 replies
    This is an extraordinary piano duet performance of Igor Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring" ("Sacre du Printemps") by pianists Michael Tilson Thomas and Ralph Grierson. If you are familiar with the orchestrated version, this is an entirely different listening experience -- one that really clarifies the harmonies and individual lines that are sometimes obscured by the orchestration. "Rite of Spring" has always been one of my favorite pieces since I first encountered it when I saw Disney's animation of it in "Fantasia" in college. About a decade later, I discovered this piano duet version, and was thrilled to recently find it...

    The polls are now closed in Virginia, and Fox News can report that Democrat Terry McAulliffe has a slight lead over Republican Ken Cuccinelli, although it is too early to call the race. According to the latest wave of Fox News exit polls, the surprising closeness of the race can be attributed - in part - to the disastrous rollout of ObamaCare. Virginia voters in general oppose ObamaCare by a margin of 53 to 45 percent, according to exit polls. Of those who oppose the law, 80 percent voted for Cuccinelli and 11 percent voted for McAuliffe.

    OK. Here's a question for brighter minds than mine. Roe v. Wade established the "right to privacy." I personally believe that the right to privacy is inherent in the unenumerated rights referred to in the Ninth Amendment, although I don't believe it is applicable to the abortion issue, but that's a subject for another day. So the question is: If the right to privacy designated in Roe v. Wade is widely accepted (especially by leftists) as the Law of the Land, wouldn't that mean that the government has no right to our personal healthcare information? Doesn't that put Obamacare at...
