It’s snowing metaphoric chyrons 8
[ by Charles Cameron — auditioning, pledging, pitching, animated by animus, focusing fire, kicking, lashing, assault, shocked, strike, slammer ]]
First, some ouroboroi (serpents that bite their own tails):
This strikes me as a negative ouroboros —
— the point here is that the serpent snaps at its tail and misses:
Next, a fairly plausible ourob — the newspaper is reporting on a suit against itself. There’s a frame-switch here, between headline and paper, which is why I call it “plausible”:
And this one — can we call it an ourob? Trunp, after all, is part of reality, so in this case it’s a part raging at its own whole:
If, as I keepm arguing, ouroboroi are often markers of significant content — not always, but opften enough — it’s worth testing the boundaries of what constitutes an ourob. And simply getting practice= in identifying them.
What do you think?
Writing in Inside the London tech scene’s frantic plan to stop Brexit of tech folk in Britain,
these people eventually congealed into an unofficial pro-Remain guerrilla operation, determined to use their skills to make the Brexit train stall before it goes flying over the white cliffs of Dover.
the group’s “numer” or leading light is quoted as saying:
MTP: Bernie Sanders is flexing his fundraising muscles ..
m39 one-to-one ..
Ari Melber 2/20/2019: We love to speculate about this [timing of Mueller release ] because it’s uniquely high drama ..
Hardball: Bernie Sanders comes fast out of the gate with his fundraising
It’s kicking it into Dan Coats’ court ..
We don’t know whether Joe Biden or Beto O’Rourke who are auditioning for the role of Hamlet, when they’re finally going to decide what to do ..
There’s so many wild cards out there on the Democratic side, and to some extent on the Trump side of the equation ..
All In, Chris Hayes:
CH to McCabe: What do you say to the basic idea that there’s these people inside the FBI, you among them, who just don’t like the guy [DJT], didn’t like the guy from the jump. and were animated by animus essentially in the actions you took ..
Enemy of the people .. these very loaded terms ..
The President calling you out, Fox News focusing its fire on you ..
Dan Coats is the latest one to be sort of in the cross hairs with this President ..
We still don’t know about Wikileaks ..
Clint Watts: The belief has always been that should Wikileaks ever go down, that day or the next day there would be an unbelievable release of material. It’s always been thought that they’re on an information timebomb ..
Morning Joe 2/21/2019 We should be shocked that we’re not more shocked ..
CNN Situation Room 5pm m59 2/20/2019 chyroon NATO MTP chyron NYT Enemy of the People
And a George Mason ouroboros:
We weren’t always so ready to label far-right extremists domestic terrorists, but now it’s happening ..
Okay, Ari Melber and the Roger Stone trial:
Roger Stone’s very well known effort to turn serious proceedings into a baroque theater of the absurd .. **
— both kicking myself and pledging “epic fight” — twofer!
Ari: Quite a performance. This is the reality part. Stone was doing the reality show part. We’re in the reality part today ..
Nick Ackerman: In a way, this is like baseball: the third strike and he’s off to the slammer ..
Rogow (defense): It’s indefensible ..
NA: If she’s put into place at the time a full gaga order, he would have gone directly to jail, do not stop Go, do not collect $200 ..
AM: This is his last, last strike as she puts it ..
And that’s my last stroke for the day.

I don’t know how you keep up with all these, Charles! I get dizzy just reading through. My mind starts shaking like popcorn in hot oil — or something like that. lol!

To be honest, I feel much the same, Sally. I keep hoping each time that I haven’t duplicated any chyrons from a previous posting. But I have a certain rhythm going — I take notes while I’m in the dialysis chair, where watching TV is pretty much the only choice, Monday Wednesday Friday, then try to download the videos the sane evening, and go through them writing up the quotes and catching the screen grabs the next morning..
I guess I’m a little obsessive, and this keeps my motor running.

Well, I admire your work, Charles. And appreciate — very much so — that you do it.

Thanks, Sally — that’s encouraging, very helpful!
