Deadguy Memorial Buffy Tuesday Question


What are the top three scary episodes of BtVS?

Helpless - When I first watched this, I feared for Buffy surviving.

Passion - The trailers advertised someone would die and superimposed each of the scoobies faces over it. Sat on the edge of the couch as Angelus chased after Jenny in the empty hallways of Sunnydale High after dark.

The Gift - The omens were dark for Buffy.


Special mention: These two scenes in Lovers Walk

XANDER
Cordy...

CORDELIA
I can't see you...

CLOSE ON Cordelia as her eyes roll back in her head and her body goes limp. As far as we know, she just died.

XANDER
Cordy...

DISSOLVE TO:

EXT. CEMETERY - DAY

A wide shot of a FUNERAL in full swing. A PRIEST is saying all the typical "ashes to ashes" stuff (too far away to be seen) to the assembled mourners.

PRIEST (V.O.)
... because God did not make death,
and he does not delight in the death
of the living. For he created all
things that they might exist, and the
generative forces of the world are
wholesome, and there is no
destructive poison in them; and the
dominion of Hades is not on earth.
For righteousness is immortal.

We arm down just long enough that we're convinced it's Cordy's funeral, then the camera finds Buffy and Willow walking in foreground.

Might be a way to bring in Aggie form "Over the Rainbow," (Lorne's psychic friend; Lorne is in Texas with the other Fangsters but Aggie comes back because she has family in Sunnydale, her parents and younger sister Aura of the Cordettes. I plan to get Vi and Aggie together, working the "bad town for straight guys" gag.)

Christopher Marlowe,

Another lecture, probably from the same course, talked about a professor who
categorized emotions by facial expressions. He studied facial expressions
across cultures and concluded there were a fixed number of emotions as
expressed through the face, but that these fixed number could be combined.
1 For instance, "anger" and "disgust" are to of the basic facial
expressions of emotion and together they express "contempt".

Anyway, applying this to emoticons. Barring a mirror, we cannot see our
facial expressions so they probably evolved as a way to signal others our
mood. Such as, "Come and see me" or "Back off Bugaloo". I imagine that's
why emoticons were created. They provide context to words that might other
wise be ambiguous.


1 He taught himself how to control all of his individual facial
muscles so that he could demonstrate the different facial expressions of
emotion.

ChristopherMarlowe says:
(Tue Feb 21 03:18:36 2017 209.159.254.195) [Edit/Delete]

^ v
wolfguard says:
(Tue Feb 21 02:16:37 2017 4.28.180.2) [Edit/Delete]
Christopher Marlowe,

Could be.

A few weeks ago I was listening to a "Great Course" lecture on emotion (I
believe the course was ~Your Best Brain)1 The professor described
emotions as being mostly automatic and unconscious. He defined "feelings" as
our conscious take on what we were experiencing.2

He described emotion as how the brain filtered incoming information and what
guided filtering was what things were important to us (as both an individual
and a member of the human species). It's how people hear their names spoken
in a noisy, crowded room. It's why two people in the same environment likely
experience it differently.


1 If so, the professor also wrote Brain Rules.

2 When I was in college, 'sensation' referred to the
physiological changes that happened as energies were received and
transmitted by our sensory systems (sight, sound, etc). "Perceptions" were
sensations processed by both our brain's design and our experiences.

wolfguard Thank you...I wonder where most of the miscommunication occurs? I'm thinking with 1 and 4.

Like the sentence, 'I am Hot'

1. Person A is getting a fever and says 'I am Hot'
2. Person A posts that on facebook
3. Person B reads 'I Am Hot' on facebook
4. Person B infers this person is 'hot' aka attractive'.



^ v
wolfguard says:
(Tue Feb 21 01:54:38 2017 4.28.180.2) [Edit/Delete]
Christopher Marlowe,

A hypothetical ...

Person A wants to say something to person B. A has no desire to be deceptive
and B wants to understand A. Nevertheless, there are at least four
opportunities for A's message to be misunderstood.

1) "A" has to translate what she means into words.

2) The message has to be sent accurately.

3) "B" has to receive the message accurately.

4) "B" has to correctly understand the message.


And this is before we mix emotions and beliefs into the communication. See
Second that Emotion by Jeremy Holden. Here's one expert's blurb for
the book ...

"Second That Emotion gives voice to a simple, pervasive - but profound -
fact of human thinking and reasoning: that fact-based emotions and the self-
authored narratives they shape are nothing less than the engine of history.
As Holden aptly points out, emotions rule the roost, and he deploys a wide
palette in elucidating this crucial aspect of human existence."

DaddyCatALSO,

Many people write fanfic, because the official story isn't going where they
want it to go (or not fast enough). Sometimes the fanfic writer wants to
make a point about the relationships or verse that they feel needs to be
spotlit.

For instance, I wrote Prodigal Daughter in early 4th season after
learning Faith would be returning. I 'knew' how Joss would take the story
and I wanted a different take (as it was, Joss used the same take, just
began it differently and stretched it over three seasons).

Wrote Equinox to say, "Buffy can't be in two places at once". The
first five stories I set in 8th season shared a common theme - Buffy can't
deal with the new world she and Willow created without allying with the
resurrected Council.

That said, some stories you just get a prompt or some constraints and take
it from there, such as all Algerina's summer fanfic contests. OTOH,
many of her and others' prompts leave a lot of room to fall back on writers'
preferences and prejudices. Some prompts we have written to here at the
Bronze ...

- story has to include fireworks

- story has to include a ghost

- story has to be a comedy

- story has to have Buffy vs./meets Someone

- story has to take place entirely in the library


I wrote Nightwings after discussing Alfred Hitchcock's The
Birds
and posting "spoilers" about such a BtVS "episode".

What great memories. :)

macpro75 I'm not sure what that link was supposed to be, do , or mean, since the discussion boards shut down 3 days ago:-).
*Harvard Man* I took a s a lesson learned, I got *Simply irresistible* on the same day, then watched it first. So I was ready to go to sleep and had to do that with *HM* being the last thing I'd watched.
So when I got *Date Movie*, I was prepared. I had also gotten *North To Alaska*, and believe me, after *Date Movie* was done I had this overwhelming urge to get the taste out of my mental mouth and couldn't put in *North To Alaska* fast enough!

I've never really thought about movies with Jewel Staite in them as things I wanted to include in my collection.

wolfguard That's kind of the issue; it's all backstory, not sure what kind of a fic I'd want to load it into. Maybe use Kayleigh as the viewpoint character when the first disasters start to happen, which could also be the lever for getting her to know that 'verse's intial incarnation of the Scoobies, Buffy, Xander, Dawn, Tara, sort of Anya, Faith, Wesley, Kennedy, Vi, & Renee & Satsu form the comics.

wolfguard Maybe. I'm still up in the air about Simon's specialty, since I want it to be a lucrative, high-status one. In addition, he does volunteer work one or two nights most weeks at various free clinics, a nd so is close to at least technically qualifying for a second specialty in emergency medicine.
What triggers Kayleigh's decision to leave him and take a job in Sunnydale is that he has always talked about doing something more meaningful with his life. So, an opportunity (maybe with UNICEF or the Agnecy for Intenrational Devlopment) comes along where he could do something truly great, both in the humanitarian and the scientific sense (and she could go along and put her multiple mechanic's certifications to good use) and he turns it down. So s he has to "take some time."
And, as luck would have it, she's in Sunnydale when Willow goes nutsy, destroys civilization, and opens up the world to multiple demon invasions.

Worst movie starring a Buffy alum was, I believe, "The Crow: Wicked Prayer," with David Boreanaz. I saw it unexpectedly on some cable channel and it was a jumbled mess. As I remember Edward Furlong, who was in one of the "Terminator" movies, played The Crow, and David played a villain character and it did not take place in a City, but out in the open, close to an Indian reservation. (Methinks, the Crow works best as a city drama.) David's character's name is Luc Crash, which should tell you all you need to know about the sensibilities of this movie. I think it was so bad that I fell asleep in the middle of it. cc: macpro75


Voyaged to the Library. Brought home:


1. "Longmire: The Complete Third Season." As I've admitted in the past, once you get past the 2nd or 3rd episode in the First Season, this series about a reticent (quiet) Sheriff in Absaroka County, Wyoming, has episodes so well written they compare to Sherlock Holmes. It stars an Aussie doing a good American accent named Robert Taylor. He's effective in the role. Also in the cast are Bailey Chase, Katee Sackhoff, and Lou Diamond Phillips.


2. "A Mind to Kill: Season One" a British detective series.


3. "Magic City: Season Two" stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan. It's about gangsters in Miami in and around 1959. Morgan plays a hotel operator.


4. "Angie Tribeca: Season One" stars Rashida Jones as a cop. I don't know anything about this but she's always been a favorite of mine.


5. "13 Moons" with Steve Buscemi. Looks interesting. He's always good.


6. "Killing Jesus" is based on one of those Bill O'Reilly books and I wouldn't touch it BUT it was done on the National Geographic Channel and "someone" said it was "Very Well Done." As much as I liked "The Passion of the Christ" I'm sure I'll get something out of it, as I'm currently reading Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John's versions.

BronzeBetaNoob ~ Hello and welcome! This is a great board! When Buffy was on the air, I posted here all the time. I destroyed my back and had to drift away, but I have always regularly lurked. I recently started actively posting again and was met with a warm welcome, which was great!

Has anyone mentioned using CTRL-F to you yet? I apologize if this is a reiteration, but just in case, here goes: Some posters, particularly if the board is very active, will use CTRL-F to search for their names (or topics of interest). That's why it's a good idea to post messages to one or more board members. Just remember to start from the bottom and go up, and don't forget to check older pages (which are archived). You'll find what works best for you!


Have you seen the entire series yet? If not, what season/episode are you up too? I don't want to spoil anything for you.


Enjoy! I look forward to posting with you!



CC: lostinamerica Wasn't there an old get-to-know-you quiz that was given to new posters? Something silly with questions like: Chocolate or caramel?

Dogmeat!!!! ~ Hello yourself! I miss all the NYCB folks. *sigh* Please say hello to them from me if you are in contact. Did you know that we missed MozzarellaDemon's birthday. Which conveniently brings me to:


MozzarellaDemon HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! (belated) Eat stake! Or, you know, cake, if you're going to be all traditional about it. ;-)




lostinamerica, DaddyCatALSO ~ RE: Movie you watched because a Buffy or Angel actor was in it This is a cut-and-paste from IMDb Buffy message board [ Specifically here (which is conveniently where I stole the idea from): ]

I think Harvard Man would still be my choice, although I disliked it enough to kind of skip through it so it technically may not count. Maybe I should rewatch it some day and give it another shot? Another huge letdown was Idle Hands with Seth Green, although I shouldn't be surprised given the reviews it received.

Widow on the Hill (Jewel Staite) was actually pretty good, but since it was (IIRC) based on a true story, the movie/storyline made me kind of angry. I also saw Veronika Decides to Die (SMG) which was okay but I felt that it had far more potential than it delivered. That's another one I should probably rewatch.

Cabin in the Woods was also good, but I felt that it could have been so much better, although my expectations were probably unreasonably high.

I have got Southland Tales (SMG), Coherence and My Neighbor's Secret (both with Nicholas Brendon), as well as Deadly Honeymoon (Summer Glau) all ready to go when I get the chance. What can I say, I live in hope! (I'm waiting for Much Ado About Nothing to come around for free on a streaming site.)

That's funny -- I had not realized that I had seen so many movies with Jossverse alumni. Although I did not specifically seek out those actors, I was very interested to see them in different roles.

||| Hmmm I'm feeling way too stalkery right now so I think I should probably just go on to another topic. :-) |||




lostinamerica, ChristopherMarlowe ~ RE: "That's true about the Annointed One, he was killed off so quickly we never really got to see what a threat he would be and why he was "annointed" in the first place."
I agree. That would have made more sense to me. But as it stands, I will probably forever call him The Annoying One.
Was he ever actually even specified as being a vampire? I realize that he dusted in sunlight, but were there any other direct/indirect indications? (I tend to block him out, so my memory is fuzzy.)

lostinamerica RE: I was on the original Bronze but more a lurker--when the show started I already had four children :) Most times I relied on the old VCR to
tape the show for me, since I usually didn't have the time to watch.

Four kids?!? I barely have time and I just have cats! I'm impressed! And just a bit in awe.

I started with The Wish which is sort of a hard one to start with. I then had to try to play catch-up with whatever episodes I could find for sale on VCR. They were expensive and incomplete but I truly loved the show by then. I eventually just asked Lurkerfish to catch me up. Thankfully he did and I could finally start to wrap my mind around the mythology of the Buffyverse. He's also the one who suggested The Bronze to me.

DaddyCatALSO,

I hope the information I provided helped you with your story. *g*


Agent Cooper,

I saw the original airing of the original series. I watched the first season
of "Next Generation", but didn't care for much of its take on the verse.
Including ...

- Enterprise looked like a vacuum cleaner.

- The Bridge looked like the set of a talk show.

- Maroon uniforms

- Most everyone appeared to be outstanding citizens of an all-inclusive
Federation.


I did like Picard. He was spot-on as a modern ship captain. Kirk would
likely never have lasted in a modern naval/space service. OTOH, Kirk might
have done well as a privateer, pirate, or swashbuckler.

ETA I remember in the pilot (~Something at Farpoint??) Picard called Riker
to his ready-room (?). Picard confessed to not being able to relate well to
children and would need him, Riker, to assist him when it came to kids. (He
may have been talking about the teenage son of the ship's doctor). I also
have memories of two other episodes ...

- A two part one where Picard was kidnapped and tortured. Picard managed to
stay defiant, but by the time he was freed was perceiving - lights? - as the
torturer as telling him (As I recall, the torturer was telling Picard the
lights were this or that and that Picard should see them so. Picard resisted
each time, but even though he said the lights were not as the torturer
insisted, Picard was beginning to see them that way.


- An episode titled, ~~ Yesterday's Enterprise ~~. The chief of security,
woman with short blond hair, had been killed in first season. In this
episode she was back - some sort of time travel anomaly. The character
played by Whoopi Goldberg sensed something was wrong, told this security
chief ~~ You really don't belong here. I don't remember anymore other than a
feeling one or more characters made the ultimate sacrifice.

Chris Marlowe: The holodeck ones were great! My favorites were the one when one minor crew member (portrayed by the guy who played Murdock on A-team in fact) was this red shirt who programmed the holodeck to make himself a hero and made all the senior officers of the ship the bufoonish villains. Which they found out about of course.

Also the one were Moriarity gains sentience on the holodeck. That was pretty creative. Hard to pull off seriously but I think they did it well.

In one it was a Westworld thing with Data as the bad guy, whiche meant when it went wrong Worf as the white hat was in real danger because of the robotic physical abilities. Stopped wtachign when I got married; last ep. I really saw in s equence was the season finale where the Romulans come back form dealing with something else and become active against the Federation again.

SO I do know Next Gen did at least one ep like that, maybe more. I sorta kinda remember one where data is all alone on the ship, or at least he seems to be. Really he is just phased out of time with the rest of the crew. Something like that. I should really google these things.

Christopher Marlowe,

I don't think they'd be that much different than now, though perhaps stated in
a more sophisticated way. That said, I came across the information after
watching a couple lectures on the progressives and the 1920's. The professor
began saying political labels we use today did not always carry the same
meaning. He said the meanings of both 'liberal' and 'conservative' have changed
since then, several times.

I also believe it would a mistake to assume because the Alabama delegation, to
a man, voted against the Klan meant those delegates were not segregationists. I
suspect most of them were, that being the nature of the times. The article
spoke of the Alabama 'oligarchy' vs the Klan. The oligarchy were TPTB. They
would not have wanted an unsanctioned body of masked vigilantes running around
the state.

(Thu Feb 16 01:06:49 2017 4.28.180.2) [Edit/Delete]
The Democratic National Convention of 1924 was also known as the "Klanbake",
because the Klu Klux Clan had a major role in it. Following the movie,
The Birth of a Nation, the KKK had experienced a resurrection and
they were looking to capitalize on it at the convention. They were not
unopposed.

The business and civic elites of Alabama viewed the Klan as a threat.
Alabama's senior senator, Oscar Underwood, said of the KKK ~ (the)
organization is a national menace (both the Klan) and the United States of
America cannot survive. Between the two, I choose my country."

Underwood and Forney Johnston, also of Alabama, sponsored a condemnation of
the Klan at the DNC. All of the Alabama delegation voted to condemn the
Klan, but the condemnation lost 542.85 to 546.85 (Not certain how fractions
played into the vote. Another source said the condemnation lost by a single
vote).

As it was, the 1928 Democratic National Convention lasted 16 days, June 24
to July 9, and 103 ballots before nominating John Davis. (There were
fistfights in the aisles). Davis went on to lose against Republican Calvin
Coolidge. The electoral count ...

382 Coolidge

136 Davis

13 La Follette Sr. (Progressive)1

One writer said the Democrats lost because of ~ prohibition, prejudice, and
prosperity ~.

In 1928, the KKK would march on Washington, D.C. - some 40,000 of them.

1 Current progressives might recognize some of the programs and
policies promoted by the progressives of the 1920's, but not all. For
instance, the progressives of that era were against immigration and some
approved eugenics.

Agent Cooper,

Was Make Room, Make Room a novel or a short story? Do you remember the
original Star Trek episode where Kirk found himself aboard an empty
Enterprise? When he searched the ship he found one other person, a
strange woman. Later he would hear heartbeats of multitudes through the hull of
the ship.

ETA The Mark of Gideon, episode 71 or 72 in season three.

That feels like it should be on there someplace. Not sure if it's considered a classic of the genre though.

Shan,

Good news. I found some of my notes on Life Serial. *g*


DaddyCatALSO,

What I remember of the discussion on Brave New World was on the ethics or epistemology (?!) of the roots of happiness. Apparently in the novel the state/government/TPTB artificially induce happiness. Should this matter? If you're happy, you're happy, right? (I've heard more than one parent say of their kids, ~ I just want them to be happy.) In this regard, one of the participants mentioned The Matrix - Red pill or blue pill?

A few weeks ago I was reading an anthropology perspective on China that said one of the founders of Tao said ~ peasants should have strong backs and soft minds. They should be happy with their work, clothes, food, shelter they have. No need to think about anything above.

wolfguard Agent Cooper Christopher Marlowe The only one of those I've read or even especially want to was *Animal Farm*.
Some critics consider *Brave New World* to be not so much dystopian as anti-utopian.
When-not-if-he-says I write *the Animals Of Utopia*, it won't have any utopian aspects, just a straight-up safari story, and will spend only a very little time in the Commonwealth of Utopia itself (in the beginning, the journey from the airport and dinner with the Cardinal,) mostly in the other nations of the continent.

A fair number of Twilight Zone ep.s came form previously published stories, not sure if that one did (it was the one with Larry Blyden and Sebastian Cabot.)

Me to, at first reading. Gulliver's Travels is in lecture 3 which looks
at the two centuries of the genre following Moore's Utopia. According to
the lecture description the professor distinguishes between classical utopia
and 'critical utopia'. The description also includes ~ understand how laughter
is an integral part of 18th century utopian storytelling ~. Satire uses
laughter.

From my previous ETA ...

"... On the NPR program one of the participants, I believe one that was an
author, said stories based on (true) utopias are hard to write or sell because
there's no conflict..."

After I posted it, remembered the story of a man who died and went to heaven.
It was a great place. Anything he wanted he got. Just ask. But eventually it
became boring, being served all the time. So he told the servants, I'll do it
myself - You can't - Why not? - Because - Well, to hell with this. I want to go

in lecture nine. Some of the utopian works included are Utopia, Candide,
Gulliver's Travels, Erewhon,

Last week I listened to NPR program on dystopian novels. Here are some of the titles noted ...

1984
Brave New World
Animal Farm
Black No More
Fahrenheit 451
A Clockwork Orange
The Illuminati Trilogy
The Handmaiden's Tale
Minority Report
Watchmen
The Hunger Games
Neuromancer
Atlas Shrugged
The Giver


Also ...

The Plot Against America by Philip Roth, copyright 2005 (Amazon)

It Can't Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis, original published 1935 (Amazon)

When this title was mentioned, one of the participants on the show, author Lionel Shriver, asked about the writing. Another participant replied ~ the plotting was a little heavy-handed. Curious if this was shared by others, I checked the readers' review on Amazon (a lot of reviews). Here are brief excerpts of two positive and negative reviews ...

"Not Sinclair's best"

"I wanted to like it"

"Very worthwhile"

"I would best describe my mood as sullen" (not of the book, but how the reader compared the book to current events)


The Mandibles: A Family, 2029-2047 by Lionel Shriver (Amazon)

Excerpt from publisher's description ...

"...this near-future novel explores the aftershocks of an economically devastating U.S. sovereign debt default on four generations of a once-prosperous American family..."




Notes on some comments made by the participants ...

- dystopia's validate one's fears

- sometimes the fear is not of chaos, but of order (protagonist's often in conflict with authority/ TPTB)

- One novel predicted a wall being built between the US and Mexico, but it was built by Mexico to keep Americans out (book was written way before the past presidential election)

- many (of the novels) have a generational divide with the villains being the old folks and the heroes being the young folks.

- a recent reprint of one novel had a run of 75,000 which is very good for a novel, but would be viewed as an astronomical failure if a tv show or film.

Notes from Professor Childer's
lectures on Hitler's Empire

Plus Wikipedia article on Reichstag Fire


How Hitler became Dictator

- 30 January 1933, Adolf Hitler sworn in as Chancellor of Germany

- Aware that President Hindenburg can remove him at any time for any reason
and that Hindenburg does not like him, Hitler is "sweetness and light" and
treats the President with respect.

- The new cabinet has only two other Nazis on it, one head of the interior
ministry and the other of the interior ministry of Prussia (largest state,
3/5 of Germany). The interior ministries oversee police and judiciary.

- Since the failure of the Munich putsch in 1923, Hitler had sought to come
to power through legal means and then destroy democracy and replace it with
a dictatorship.

- Given the German constitution of the time the key was to become chancellor
and pass an enabling act. The constitution's article 48 let the German
president issue emergency decrees (the chancellor would actually draft such
a decree and present it before the president for his approval). However,
such decrees could be vetoed by a simple majority vote in the Reichstag
(parliament). An enabling act allowed a chancellor to issue decrees without
recourse to the Reichstag for a period of four years. However, it took a
2/3rds vote in favor to pass an enabling act and the Nazis had 32% of the
seats.

- Consequently, Chancellor Hitler asked President Hindenburg to dissolve the
Reichstag and call for new elections on 5 March 1933. The goal was to get a
more seats, preferably at least 50%.

- Following Hitler becoming chancellor many past NSDAP members returned to
the party. They were "jubilant". The SA was stoked (NSDAP's party militia).
OTOH, many Germans were expecting a civil war between the Nazis and the
Communists (they had got 17%) of the vote. In the lead up to the election
the Nazis warned of a planned Communist putsch.

- On 27 February 1933 a fire broke out in the Reichstag building. Nazis
suspected the Communists. Communists believed the Nazis started the fire as
a pretext to arrest them. As it was, one man was found in or near the
building, ~Marinus van der Lubbe. He and four or so others were arrested,
indicted, and tried. Only van der Lubbe was found guilty and executed.
1

- On 28 February 1933 Hitler ask Hindenburg for a Reichstag Fire Decree.
Hindenburg grants it. The decree essentially ends all civil rights in
Germany (habeas corpus, freedom of expression/press/association/public
assembly, privacy of mail and telephones)

- The Communist party (KPD) is banned.

- 5 March 1933 NSDAP wins 44% of the vote. Begin intimidating or banning
other parties.

- 23 March 1933 Enabling Act is passed.

- The Reichstag Fire Decree and the Enabling Act have given Hitler all the
power he needs to be dictator. But to be certain ...

- May 1933 Trade unions banned

- July 1933 All political parties are banned, excepting NSDAP

- July 1933 A Condordat is signed with the Vatican. Hitler viewed this as a
seal of approval, others differ.2

- The German Army numbered around 100,000 men. The SA, the Nazi party
militia numbered around a million men. This concerned the Army. As
Chancellor, Hitler needed the Army more than the SA. So ..

30 June 1934 "The Night of the Long Knives" Hitler as 150-200 SA leaders
summarily executed.

- President Hindenburg was always a threat, but he was an old man. He died
in August 1934. Hitler had already arranged that upon the old man's passing
that the roles of president and chancellor would be merged into one.

In 1923 he had escaped death in a failed putsch in Munich. Eleven years
later he was the Leader of Germany.


1 Professor Childers said the historical consensus was van der
Lubbe had actually done it alone. While googling the fire came across more
recent article(s) claiming the Nazis did it.

2 During the various elections from ~ 1928 to 1933, Catholic
priests would tell their flocks that is was ~ not consistent with being a
Christian to vote for Nazis or Communists.

There is a video of Trump with Japanese PM Abe, where they are both seated and Trump pretty much has a grip on Abe's hand that last a long time. Much was made of Abe's reaction to it.

Notes from Professor Childer's
lectures on Hitler's Empire

PLUS commentary based on various Wikipedia articles on Eric von Schieicher
and Franz von Papen (in parentheses). Schieicher and Papen were the last two
chancellors before Hitler. They had been good friends, but fell apart in
last months of 1932 (they had taken turns stabbing each other in the back).


How Hitler became Chancellor


- The NSDAP (Nazis) had won the most votes in the summer 1932 federal
elections, but could not form a government without allying with another
political party. The Reichstag (parliament) was dissolved and new elections
were called for November.

- This greatly worried Joseph Gobbels who ran the Nazis' propaganda unit. He
knew that few of the Germans voting for the NSDAP were true believers. Most
voting for the Nazis were protesting the existing government. Further the
Nazis had built a coalition of interest groups, promising all things to all
people. Contradictions abounded. The coalition was coming apart.

- In the November elections the NSDAP lost votes. Hitler was despondent. Why
is this important?

(The NSDAP was not the only political party seeking to end democratic
government through the constitutional process. The conservative-monarchical-
right wanted a presidential government - one that would not have to answer
to the Reichstag (parliament). They wanted the chancellor to answer to the
president and not to the parliament. Their formula, in short-hand, 25/48/53,
which referred to articles in the constitution:

Art 25 The president can dissolve the parliament
Art 48 The president can sign emergency bills/decrees without the bill first
going through parliament
Art 53 The president appoints the chancellor

Their idea was to get the president to appoint the right chancellor who
would rule through decrees and use the threat of article 53 to keep the
parliament at bay. Why do you have to keep the parliament at bay? Because
the constitution let the parliament vote to veto any emergency decree with a
simple majority vote if done within sixty days of the decree.

Chancellor Bruning (1930-1932) had been governing through decrees, but the
Social Democrats in the parliament had tolerated him. The Social Democrats
would not tolerate a chancellor from the right. So the conservative-
monarchical-right was looking for a political party that would support such
a chancellor and the NSDAP looked like such a party)

- In the spring of 1932, Eric von Schieicher was a leading figure in the
above endeavor. He approached Hitler saying he would arrange for Bruning to
be removed as chancellor, dissolve the parliament, create a presidential
government, and remove the ban on the Nazi SA and SS militias in return for
the Nazis supporting the new government. An agreement appears to have been
made, but neither the Nazis or the conservative party got enough votes in
the July elections to form a government alone and chose not to form a
coalition.


- Returning to the aftermath of the November elections. The Nazi vote had
dropped from its mid-summer high. Consequently, Hitler was more willing to
work with Papen when the latter approached him with another deal: I, Papen,
will persuade President Hindenburg to accept a role for you in the
government and in return you will have your party, NSDAP (Nazi), support the
government. The agreement was made and an appointment was made to see
President Hindenburg. Papen and Hitler had not sorted out which of them
would be chancellor and which vice-chancellor.

- Once in audience with President Hindenburg, Hitler demanded to be
chancellor or he and his party would go home. Papen said, fine. You can be
chancellor. On 30 January 1933, Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany.

- Professor Childers said the news pundits at the time saw Hitler as the
puppet and Papen as the puppet-master. They were, of course, wrong.

lostinamerica macpro75 I have made a ppoint of it, e vne have 1 or 2 Expendables for Charisma (haven't watched.) Except for Mercedes, I avoid stories where the Buffdom Babe isn't the Final Girl, so no Taboo, Intemrdio, scream 2, or grudge 2 Plus I disliked The grudge.) Have long list of things I haven't gotten yet, though.

Trivia Girl--My oldest daughter is at IU and the sinking library story
is an urban myth, sorry :(


ChristopherMarlowe--I know, the weather has been crazy here too! Though
it's usually crazy since we're in the middle of the country ;)


macpro75, DaddyCatALSO--You know, I've never sought out a movie with a
BTVS character in it, don't know why.


macpro75, ChristopherMarlowe--That's true about the Annointed One, he
was killed off so quickly we never really got to see what a threat he
would be and why he was "annointed" in the first place.


macpro75--I was on the original Bronze but more a lurker--when the show
started I already had four children :) Most times I relied on the old VCR to
tape the show for me, since I usually didn't have the time to watch.


Happy Belated Birthday Holy Water!

Join me in thanking President Trump for personally ending Obama drought in California.

If people are going to blame him for things that a President has no control over, they should also thank him for things that a President has no control over.

Happy Birthday from the Bronze, to Anne #3, Blaberus, Holy Water, Liz!



Played with Kaylee. Sun came out, and I walked on my feet and heard with my ears. I ate the bits, the bits stayed down, and I work. I function like I'm a girl. I hate it because I know it'll go away. The sun goes dark and chaos has come again. Bits. Fluids. What am I?!
