And so begins Thanksgiving Week. I’m still in recoup mode from the weekend—at least a little bit, anyway—but awake and aware enough for a few observations. THE DEAL OF THE ART: According to “New York” magazine, the $142 million recently paid in an art sale for a Francis Bacon triptych surpasses, by $4 million, the entire annual budget for the National Endowment for the Arts. Priorities? LETTERS OF THE ALPHABET THAT *** OFF CONSERVATIVES: I just realized that two of the Rabid Right’s favorite punching bags both have “NEA” as their initials: the just-mentioned National Endowment for the Arts, and the National Education Association. Clearly, artists and educators are doing something right. BREAD—AND, ON THE ROADS, CIRCUSES: Local weather forecasts call for **what could be** light snow tomorrow morning, transitioning to a “wintry mix” and subsequently all rain. I’ll admit I get edgy at such forecasts, but then I don’t have to drive in whatever falls tomorrow. Have fun pirouetting wi ...
Francis Bacon was born on January 22, 1561 in London, England. Bacon served as Attorney General and Lord Chancellor of England, resigning amid charges of corruption. His more valuable work was philosophical. Bacon took up Aristotelian ideas, arguing for an empirical, inductive approach, known as the scientific method, which is the foundation of modern scientific inquiry.
God Almighty first planted a garden. And indeed it is the purest of human pleasures. - Francis Bacon

DROP THAT REVENGE PLAN! Roms 12: 19 reads "Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves... For it is written vengeace is mine; I will repay, says the LORD." NB:VENGEANCE IS MINE! This to say vengeance makes u to impersonate and steal what belongs to God. Which provokes Him to fight you! Little worder Francis Bacon noted: "A MAN THAT STUDIETH REVENGE KEEPS HIS OWN WOUNDS GREEN."

Have you ever emerged from a matinee movie, squinted into the sudden burst of sunlight and sneezed uncontrollably? Up to a third of the population will answer this question with an emphatic "Yes!" (whereas nearly everyone else scratches their head in confusion). Sneezing as the result of being exposed to a bright light—known as the photic sneeze reflex—is a genetic quirk that is still unexplained by science, even though it has intrigued some of history's greatest minds. Aristotle mused about why one sneezes more after looking at the sun in The Book of Problems: "Why does the heat of the sun provoke sneezing?" He surmised that the heat of the sun on the nose was probably responsible. Some 2 ,000 years later, in the early 17th century, English philosopher Francis Bacon neatly refuted that idea by stepping into the sun with his eyes closed—the heat was still there, but the sneeze was not (a compact demonstration of the fledgling scientific method). Bacon's best guess was that the sun's light made the e ...

And so another excellent day out in the big smoke :-). It all started out well when Sam and I made our way to Crystal Palace station just up the road and hopped on a train to Victoria. All going well till we got to Streatham Hill a few stops on, and the train stopped, and stayed put. Someone at Clapham Junction a couple of stops away had decided to throw him/herself under a train, and was killed, most fatally, according to our train driver. Poor soul :-(. So we jumped on a bus to lovely old Brixton, (did I just say lovely old Brixton ?, surely you jest Brian, yeah I jest), then the Underground to Victoria, and on to Sloane Square, and the Plus One Gallery. Man, have they got some works of art stacked up in the basement below or what !!! After that, a short walk back to the Saatchi Gallery, and some rather interesting "paper art".

Six degrees of Francis Bacon. Tracing the influence & ideas of Bacon, Shakespeare, Isaac Newton:
Why are *** people so weird? We "act weird" only in the eyes of the heteros, because our function is a different one. Heteros ensure the continuation of the species; *** folk ensure human evolution. Man has no need for sharper claws or longer teeth. Homoseuxals advance evolution by the effect they have on society. Think of living in a world in which the following *** folk had not lived: Socrates, Plato, Beethoven, Michaelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Jean-Jacques-Régis de Cambacérès (author of the Napoleonic Code, i.e. the law of France and many other places, basis of much other law, incl. modern German law), Immanuel Kant, Schopenhauer, the Wright Brothers (aviators, inventor of the airplane), Felix Hoffmann (discoverer of Aspirin and heroin, also diamorphine, prescribed to kill extreme pain), Cecil John Rhodes (after whom two countries were named, for a while the granary of Africa: Northern and Southern Rhodesia, now Zambia and Zimbabwe). Francis Bacon, philosopher, statesman, scientist, lawyer, jurist, ...
To return to Francis Bacon, he once opined, “They are ill discoverers that think there is no land, when they can see nothing but sea.” Believers would offer advice to Atheists and Agnostics alike that God exists, whether seen or not, whether desired or not, whether considered proven or not. Argument to the contrary is just a distraction from a reality which will unfold as undeniable truth on a future day of joy for some, deep regret and horror for others. A great many people need not await the Day of Judgement to entertain such a conclusion, for all people faced with insurmountable trials find themselves drawn to belief, for when faced with desperate circumstances, Who else do people instinctively call upon other than God? Although few make good on the promises of fidelity made at such moments of desperate appeal, the evidence of the oath remains long after the promises to God are cast aside to lie neglected in the gutters of the memory. Can anybody help the insincere? Very likely not. The con ...

Why Edward Snowden's Leaks Have Empowered All of Us Edward Snowden has to some degree fragmented and dispersed the concentrated power of capital and the state. July 2, 2013 | If the expression knowledge is power - attributed to the English Renaissance philosopher Francis Bacon - is true, then it implies, among other things, that its opposite is also true. That is, if knowledge is power, then the lack of knowledge, or ignorance, amounts to a lack of, or exclusion from, power. As such, removing, obscuring, or hiding knowledge - in a word, secrecy - not only creates power, it produces powerlessness, weakness, and vulnerability as well. Indeed, as Elias Canetti phrased it in his Crowds and Power: "Secrecy lies at the very core of power." As the state, then, acquires ever more knowledge/power through such programs as PRISM, 'the people' in general - in spite of the State's dubious claims of enhancing security and safety - are only further weakened, put into an ever more vulnerable, precarious position. In add ...

Is it possible if you could tell me the intent of painting "Memories of Arusha" the way it is painted. Why the dripping paint? Thank you sir.
A Time When My Writing Meant Something More... In a message dated 5/28/02 12:31:03 PM Eastern Daylight Time Carlawrote to me and I responded... Below is our exchange: You wrote: “Education today is based on insane and false paradigms and how we arrived here goes back to Francis Bacon, Jesuit, intellectuality and Jan Amos Comenius.” But somewhere there must be an "outline" or model for learning, no? In reading the url you sent it seems that the "ideals" of learning through experience and with self discipline do not, to me, seem like a model of education today. If we are speaking of consciousness here, and not education, per se, I am interested in what everyone thinks of time collapsing. Time is actually speeding up (or collapsing).

However, since 1980 this resonance has been slowly rising. It is now over 12 cycles per sec ...

We lost our friend Roger Brace on Friday morning. He'd fought a ferocious battle against cancer for twenty years, taking it on as a mortal enemy and fighting it like a Tasmanian devil. Over the years his treatment had virtually wiped out his immune system which resulted in almost every infection he'd suffered turning to septicemia. This condition hospitalized him over 60 times, a number he'd been told was a European record, and every time he'd spat in its eye, picked himself up , and come back for another round, boosted by a regular supply of red wine and golden virginia rollies An artist almost all his adult life as a young man he exhibited alongside Francis Bacon and continued to create his unique work, painting almost 'till the end. Single minded, opinionated, sometimes angry, often funny and a wonderful teller of tales, immensely brave and never one for self pity, he leaves a ragged hole with his passing.

"Does the Bible say that an increase in technology is a sign of the end times?" Answer: Many people over the years have proposed that there would be an increase in technology as the end times approach. Among those espousing this view were renowned scientists Isaac Newton and Francis Bacon. On the frontispiece of Bacon's Instauratio Magna, ships of learning were depicted passing by the limits of human knowledge, with a quote in Latin from Daniel 12:4. In more recent times, this belief has been supported in books like Future Shock by Alvin Toffler and The Bible Code by Michael Drosnin. In Future Shock, first published in 1970, Toffler described the results of the rapid advancement of technology he had observed in the 1950s and 1960s. As technology brought ever faster changes in society, certain people were left on the sidelines, unable to cope with the speed of change. That stress and disorientation in people was dubbed “Future Shock.” Toffler did not attempt to use the Bible in his work, but the concep ...

Considered one of the first of the British empiricists, following the tradition of Francis Bacon, he is equally important to social contract theory. His work had a great impact upon the development of epistemology and political philosophy. His writings influenced Voltaire and Rousseau, many Scottish Enlightenment thinkers, as well as the American revolutionaries. His contributions to classical republicanism and liberal theory are reflected in the United States Declaration of Independence. Locke's theory of mind is often cited as the origin of modern conceptions of identity and the self, figuring prominently in the work of later philosophers such as Hume, Rousseau and Kant. Locke was the first to define the self through a continuity of consciousness. He postulated that the mind was a blank slate or ta ...
Augustan literature (1700–1750) During the 18th century literature reflected the worldview of the Age of Enlightenment (or Age of Reason): a rational and scientific approach to religious, social, political, and economic issues that promoted a secular view of the world and a general sense of progress and perfectibility. Led by the philosophers who were inspired by the discoveries of the previous century by people like Isaac Newton and the writings of Descartes, John Locke and Francis Bacon. They sought to discover and to act upon universally valid principles governing humanity, nature, and society. They variously attacked spiritual and scientific authority, dogmatism, intolerance, censorship, and economic and social restraints. They considered the state the proper and rational instrument of progress. The extreme rationalism and skepticism of the age led naturally to deism; the same qualities played a part in bringing the later reaction of romanticism. The Encyclopédie of Denis Diderot epitomized the spi ...

Francis Bacon, (22 January 1561 – 9 April 1626) Was an English philosopher, statesman, scientist, jurist, orator and author. He served both as Attorney General and Lord Chancellor of England. After his death, he remained extremely influential through his works, especially as philosophical advocate and practitioner of the scientific method during the scientific revolution. Bacon has been called the creator of empiricism. His works established and popularized inductive methodologies for scientific inquiry, often called the Baconian method, or simply the scientific method. His demand for a planned procedure of investigating all things natural marked a new turn in the rhetorical and theoretical framework for science, much of which still surrounds conceptions of proper methodology today. Bacon was knighted in 1603, and created both Baron Verulam in 1618 and Viscount St. Alban in 1621;[b] as he died without heirs, both peerages became extinct upon his death. He famously died by contracting pneumonia while stu ...
“He that gives good advice, builds with one hand; he that gives good counsel and example, builds with both; but he that gives good admonition and bad example, builds with one hand and pulls down with the other.” ~Francis Bacon One of the courses I took in college was called "Interviewing and Counseling." One of the things about the course that was so enlightening and exiting was that we had a chance to begin to show everyone, including ourselves as individuals, how we conduct ourselves in a one-on-one dialectic interview with a client. Now, our professor told us this story about when he went to school in San Marcos at Texas State University over thirty years ago. When he was in graduate school, his professor would have kids from the Jerry Job Corps. come in so graduate students had a chance to play the role as counselors and work with these kids. They would be observed by the rest of the class behind a one-way observation window. In that particular program they have observation rooms. In the c ...

(US Admin 2) Excerpt: After telling the story of Mohammed’s boast that he would make the mountain come to him, only to be forced to go to it, Francis Bacon observed, “If the mountains will not come to Mohammed, Mohammed will go to the mountain.” Americans, Englishmen, Frenchmen and countless others went to the Muslim world hoping to turn it into another Boston, another London and another Paris. Instead Boston, London and Paris are turning into another Kabul, another Islamabad and another Mogadishu. Mohammed has come to the mountain. Five years ago, the sight of Muslim terrorists beheading British soldiers was a horror that could happen in Afghanistan or Iraq. Now it has happened in broad daylight in the capital of the United Kingdom. In a decade, 600,000 white Londoners have fled the city. Those are the sorts of numbers you would expect from the Syrian civil war. Their place has been taken by the million Muslims occupying the city.

Examples of Scientists Operating from a Christian Worldview If science is a strictly secular endeavor without any need for a biblical worldview, then why were most fields of science developed by Bible-believing Christians? For example, consider Isaac Newton, Gregor Mendel, Louis Pasteur, Johann Kepler, Galileo Galilei, Robert Boyle, Blaise Pascal, Michael Faraday, James Joule, Joseph Lister, and James Clerk Maxwell. Were these “greats” of science not doing science? Francis Bacon developed the scientific method, and he was a young-earth creationist and devout Christian. Even in modern times, the inventor of the MRI scanning machine, Dr. Raymond Damadian, is a Christian working with Christian principles. The founder of catastrophic plate tectonics, Dr. John Baumgardner,is also a devout Christian. And those who recently founded the scientific field of baraminology are also Christians. Also, I (Bodie Hodge) developed a new method for production of submicron titanium diboride for the materials science and ...
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle “Don’t bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.” ~ William Faulkner ~ “Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand-and melting like a snowflake.” ~ Francis Bacon, Sr. ~ “People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are.

The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them.” ~ George Bernard Shaw ~ “People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things.

Continental drift was one of many ideas about tectonics proposed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The theory has been superseded and the concepts and data have been incorporated within plate tectonics. By 1915, Alfred Wegener was making serious arguments for the idea in the first edition of The Origin of Continents and Oceans. In that book, he noted how the east coast of South America and the west coast of Africa looked as if they were once attached. Wegener wasn't the first to note this (Abraham Ortelius, Francis Bacon, Benjamin Franklin, Snider-Pellegrini, Roberto Mantovani and Frank Bursley Taylor preceded him), but he was the first to marshal significant fossil and paleo-topographical and climatological evidence to support this simple observation (and was supported in this by researchers such as Alex du Toit). However, his ideas were not taken seriously by many geologists, who pointed out that there was no apparent mechanism for continental drift. Specifically, they did not see how continent ...

Jacob's Ladder is a 1990 American horror film written by Bruce Joel Rubin, directed by Adrian Lyne and starring Tim Robbins, Elizabeth Peña and Danny Aiello. The story centers around Vietnam veteran Jacob Singer, whose experiences both prior to and during the war have resulted in strange flashbacks and bizarre hallucinations that continue to haunt him in his everyday life. Made by an independent film company Carolco Pictures ten years after being written by Rubin, Jacob's Ladder drew from several inspirations for its story and effects, including the short film An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge and the paintings of Francis Bacon. Though only moderately successful upon release, the film garnered a cult following and became a source of influence for a number of other works, notably the horror media franchise Silent Hill.

Could Life Originate by Chance? WHEN Charles Darwin advanced his theory of evolution he conceded that life may have been “originally breathed by the Creator into a few forms or into one.”1 But present-day evolutionary theory generally eliminates any mention of a Creator. Instead, the theory of the spontaneous generation of life, once repudiated, has been revived in a somewhat altered form. Belief in a form of spontaneous generation can be traced back for centuries. In the 17th century C.E., even respected men of science, including Francis Bacon and William Harvey, accepted the theory. However, by the 19th century Louis Pasteur and other scientists had seemingly dealt it a deathblow, having proved by experiments that life comes only from previous life. Nevertheless, out of necessity, evolutionary theory assumes that long ago microscopic life must somehow have arisen spontaneously from nonliving matter.A New Form of Spontaneous Generation A current evolutionary position on life’s starting point is ...

A little historical background on the roots and psychology of Narcissum... stemming from Greek mythology. Narcissus was a handsome Greek youth who rejected the desperate advances of the nymph Echo. As punishment, he was doomed to fall in love with his own reflection in a pool of water. Unable to consummate his love, Narcissus 'lay gazing enraptured into the pool, hour after hour', and finally pined away, changing into a flower that bears his name, the narcissus. The story was retold in Latin by Ovid in his Metamorphoses, in which form it would have great influence on medieval and Renaissance culture. 'Ovid's tale of Echo and Narcissus...weaves in and out of most of the English examples of the Ovidian narrative poem'; and 'allusions to the story of Narcissus...play a large part in the poetics of the Sonnets' of Shakespeare. Here the term used was 'self-love...Feed'st thy light's flame with self-substantial fuel'. Francis Bacon used the same term: 'it is the nature of extreme self-lovers, as the ...
Cleanliness is Next to Godliness "Bible Verse" Forms of this idea can be found in some ancient Jewish writings (not the Bible), Francis Bacon, and John Wesley.

Once again, the nation is being tricked into focusing its attention on a time-tested diversion by the PDP. Nigerians’ attention is being diverted from massive, unresolved scams around the power sector, fuel subsidy and pensions as well as failures to implement budgets or tackle crippling insecurity in much of the nation. The nation is being fleeced by crude theft, grounded by a public service that does not serve any useful purpose, and challenged by serial and basic failures by an administration that shows no capacity to improve. Yet people are being dragged into a needless and diversionary ploy over the ambition of a President with a long way to go before elections.

he long-running trial of Major Hamza Al-Mustapha, the Chief Security Officer to late military ruler, General Sani Abacha, is probably one of the most pathetic cases of slow process of justice. Although his appeal against the death sentence on him is due to be heard on April 29, 2013, it is never too late to once again call on President Jonathan and the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Tunde Fashola to intervene politically and grant him pardon. Prejudice or hostility against suspects or convicts should not deter governments from intervening in legal matters to provide a political solution. In the case of Al-Mustapha, there are even worries whether the inconsistencies and discrepancies in witnesses accounts could have justified the death sentence imposed on him on January 30 2012. Pardon or amnesty is not a new thing in many countries. The famous British jurist and statesman, Mr. Francis Bacon, described revenge as a form of wild justice, which the law should seek to weed out. If Nigerians could support state par ...

Hill: The Sense of 17th Century English Radicals The 20th century's leading English historian of the 17th century, Christopher Hill, gives a detailed and complex account of dissenters in his 1972 The World Turned Upside Down: Radical Ideas during the English Revolution. The thing is, there were so many different kinds of dissenters in that messy century that things get complicated. Don't worry about the many names here, just notice how this fits with the comments of Berman, who only follows the big names in the scientific revolution. Hill sketches many disruptive movements, most of which were articulated in terms of some particular reading of the Bible, and often a belief in some secret ancient knowledge (hermeticism). So cool and level-headed a sceptic as John Selden was at once a supporter of the new heliocentric astronomy [Copernicus] and a great admirer of Robert Fludd [alchemist]. Francis Bacon himself had been inspired by the Hermetic [=ancient knowledge of magic] religio-social ideal of controlling ...

Francis Bacon, the famous philosopher, has rightly said that a little knowledge of science makes man an atheist, but an in-depth study of science makes him a believer in God. Scientists today are eliminating models of God, but they are not eliminating God. If you translate this into Arabic, it is La illaha illal la, There is no god, (god with a small ‘g’ that is fake god) but God (with a capital ‘G’).

At last! I found George Melly on vinyl I have his books, now I feel complete. Melly saw himself as a Surrealist, a pal of Francis Bacon, and without a doubt a hardcore Soho London character. His book "Style In Revolt" is a classic look on the subject matter of personal style and the music world. And on top of that he is a pretty good blues/jazz singer. What's cool is that one can hear his British accent while singing these standards. Very good album!

SCIENCE Introduction Observation Hypothesis Prediction Verification Evaluation The enunciation of a scientific method by Roger Bacon in the thirteenth century described a repeating cycle of observation, hypothesis, experimentation and the need for independent verification. This view, itself inspired by an arab alchemical tradition not endorsed by christian ecclesiastical authority, led to Francis Bacon (in 1620 with the New Organon) laying down some methods for identifying causation between phenomena. With these articulations, unfounded speculation and analogical arguments began to be replaced by consistent and logical methods of investigation. It is common to speak as if a single approach of this type were how scientists operate literally and all the time. Most historians, philosophers and sociologists regard this perspective as na飗e, and view the actual progress of science as more complicated and haphazard.

This he arranged with The Priory of Sion, who hold his genealogical records as well as his movements through the transmigration of the Soul, so when he arrived at Axat in the South of France as Henry Boudet, everything was arranged so that he would enter the priesthood and take over the parish of Rennes les Bains, which is what happened...Then the next part of the plan was to have the church of Mary Magdalene at Rennes le Chateau redecora ...

REVIEW © SMG Newspapers, 2001. Reproduced with permission. The heady ferment of Sixties culture: the sharp-suited world of cockney hustlers, the intoxicating buzz of Swinging London in its heyday - fashion, theatre, film and above all the great pop music, pulsing through Soho clubs, Chelsea coffee bars, Carnaby Street boutiques and decadent country-house weekends. In his Diary of a Teddy Boy: A Memoir of the Long Sixties, Mim Scala the Pied Piper leads us on a kaleidoscopic dance down the years, from ice-cream salesman in the East End of London, to gambler, agent, record-producer and hippie traveller. Wherever the action was, Mim Scala was there. Riding high on a roller-coaster of flickering fame and fortune, Mim entertains Diana Dors, hosts gaming parties with Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud, evades the wrath of the Kray Twins, bumps into Bill Burroughs in Morocco, hires Dennis Hopper, cajoles Jean-Luc Godard into filming the Rolling Stones, turns down the musical Hair on the say-so of Salvador Dali, sig ...
REVIEW Written by Andrew Lycett for The Independant, London 8th February 2001 An Irish paper missed the point when it compared Mim Scala's book about the "long Sixties" with Kerouac and Hunter S Thompson. Diary of a Teddy Boy, first published in Dublin last year, is a gentler, more entertaining read. It captures the excitement of a period, from the Suez crisis of 1956 to the Yom Kippur war of 1973, when social barriers broke down and confident youngsters such as Scala, whose family owned an ice-cream parlour, could prosper in the entertainment and music industries, cavort with fun-loving aristocrats, take masses of drugs, drop out, and still emerge, tolerably compos mentis. "The Sixties had a rarefied atmosphere," Scala says. "So much was happening then and I was often there. But I was always a fringe player; I was never blinded by the dense fog of fame. Some people had to be there, but I was there because I wanted to be there." Scala ran a gambling den frequented by the artist Francis Bacon. He was agent ...
Henry Ford said 'History is bunk'. Francis Bacon said 'histories make men wise'. Whatever one feels it is an undisputed fact that all the knowledge that we have today is the result of achievements and failures of great men recorded in the past. If you look into the evolution of the orthopaedics you can see that a few fundamental truths are enunciate at the earliest recorded time. Then the pattern of developments is mostly one of lapses of memory, rediscovery of forgotten knowledge and fresh application. History often serves as a deterent to fraudulent claims by persons for a new discovery, which perhaps was already known for many yeas and forgotten. In the following pages I intent to cover this history under the following heads.

This week we celebrate the birthdays of Francis Bacon, Virginia Woolfe, and Lord Byron. A personal celebration on Saturday - Australia Day! So throw a shrimp on the barbie and enjoy family and friends.
"Bacon's portraits are an interrogation of the *limits* of the self. Up to what degree of distortion does an individual still remain himself? To what degree of distortion does a beloved person still remain a beloved person? For how long does a cherished face growing remote through illness, through madness, through hatred, through death still remain recognizable? Where is the border beyond which a self ceases to be a self?" — From today's essay, "The Painter's Brutal Gesture: On Francis Bacon," by Milan Kundera
To all the "scientists" out there who think there's no way a person of higher thinking could possibly believe in a divine - Copernicus, Francis Bacon, Johannes Kepler, Galileo Galilei, Rene Descartes, Blaise Pascal, Isaac Newton, Robert Boyle, Gregor Mendel, Max Planck, and Albert Einstein all believed in a creator.
Congratulations to Francis Bacon for his 40+ Shakespeare plays (by Christopher Marlowe)

If today is your birthday - Happy Birthday! If You Were Born Today, January 22 You are highly intelligent, although your viewpoints are not always understood and your thinking is often far ahead of its time. Easily bored and quickly distracted, you can be impatient at times if others are not as quick or clever as you. While broad-minded overall, you can also be quite stubborn in your thinking. Work and daily routines need to change, even in small ways, in order to keep you interested and challenged. Many of you have a strong travel itch. Famous people born today: John Hurt, Graham Kerr, Francis Bacon, Diane Lane, Sam Cooke, Michael Hutchence, Linda Blair.
Two food based facts: philosopher Francis Bacon was born on this day 1561; ballerina Anna Pavlova died 'tomorrow' in 1931.
If today is your birthday, you share it with: Francis Bacon, Jack Nicklaus, Benny Hill, Christian Dior and Wolfman Jack. Benny Hill and Wolfman Jack are two of my favorites. BJ
