    I know a tad about music. :}

    Back in 1966 , the Beatles did a song called TOMMORROW NEVER KNOWS. This may be 1 of the 1st times a drum fill was looped and used repeatedly throughout a whole song. In other words, Ringo did not play the drums thru the whole song . He came up with a drum fill that lasted a few bars and that was just repeatedly looped for the whole song . IMHO, this is 1 of the earliest examples of this idea which is now prevalent in rap music which uses a single drum pattern repeatedly from a drum machine/keyboard.
    Then in 1968 , The Beatles did a experimental song called REVOLUTION 9 { its awful
    } . It was a bunch of looped sounds/ noises . Lennon is quoted as saying " THIS IS THE MUSIC OF THE FUTURE, BECAUSE YOU DONT HAVE TO EVEN KNOW HOW TO PLAY A INSTRUMENT TO CREATE IT " . Kinda prophetic ?

    More recently, the band Blondie is often cited as creating a song that was a precursor to the rap style , with their song called RAPTURE.

    Read this link if you are curious. The story unfolds in the comic books that followed the series.

    I looked that one up on Hulu and watched the first episode. Looks interesting, lots of mystery, intriguing characters and definite potential for action. I'm in for at least a few episodes, maybe more.

    I got your point. Trump doesn't have first amendment rights because he's part of the government and despite him taking no tangible action you still want him to shut up.

    Fwiw - unless and until he tries force I'm behind him.

    I forgot El Chapo

    Caracol Tv, Telemundo and others are putting out some great action dramas based on drug traffickers in Colombia and Mexico. Some of the best television I ever watched. The subtitles are even helping me learn Spanish.

    This is not about rights! Of course they have the right to protest where and how they want within the law. I also have the right to financially and morally stop supporting their sport and spend my time and money elsewhere! No one's rights are being violated!

    Simple as that! Everyone is severely overthinking this! Stop arguing with the leftie commies. They HAVE no argument against what you want to do with your own free time. It's your time to use as you please. No confrontations or uncomfortable discussions ending in frustration with some communist idiot need to take place. You don't need to say a word. Just act! Can you imagine how they'll react to that??

    Nielsen: Football Ratings Off 11 Percent this YearThe Associated Press
    by BREITBART NEWS26 Sep 2017784

    NEW YORK (AP) — Through three weeks, viewership for national telecasts of NFL games is down 11 percent this season compared to 2016, the Nielsen company said on Tuesday.
    Nielsen said the games averaged 17.63 million viewers for the first three weeks of last season, and have dipped to 15.77 million this year. The 2017 figures don’t include this week’s Monday night game between the Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals.

    Figures. Colin Kaepernick Has Never Registered to Vote
    by Cristina Laila 66 Comments
    Social justice warrior and political hero of the left, Colin Kaepernick has never even registered to vote.
    Kaepernick began his protest of the national anthem and the American flag in August of 2016 while he played for the San Francisco 49ers.
    He made headlines when he decided to sit for the national anthem during a preseason game. Since then the number of athletes protesting has also grown.

    Backlash from angry fans reached a fever pitch this week after President Trump lashed out at NFL players protesting. It has turned into an all out war with fans burning NFL gear and bombarding their network providers with phone calls cancelling football packages

    Wheelchair-bound teen stands for flag

    [​IMG]
    (Fox 35/Myron Leggett)

    Arek Trenholm, 16, has spina bifida, but didn’t let his disability get in the way of his patriotism. Trenholm, who last stood on his own seven years ago, was watching the local high school’s homecoming parade on Oct. 12 when he hoisted himself up as the American flag passed by.

    Photographer Myron Legget, Trenholm’s uncle, was with the Leesburg, Florida, teen as he and his little brother watched the parade.

    "Here come the junior ROTC, marching along and chanting, and I heard ... 'He's standing!' and I knew what he was standing for, in an instant,'" Leggett told Fox35. "I whipped around real quick with the camera and just started snapping pictures of him."

    Legget snapped a photo of his nephew using his arms to “stand,” as his legs are unable to support him and posted the image on Facebook.

    Trenholm was born with spina bifida, a congenital condition which impacts the development of the backbone and spinal cord.

    "He's making that effort, where so many ... that have legs, that could stand, are sitting or kneeling,"
    Leggett told the news station, "and not using their 'well legs' to stand and respect those who have fought and died for our flag and for our country.

    I think the Monday Night game got a little bump, due to people tuning in just to see what would occur for the National Anthem. Tomorrow's game, Packers/Bears, should be a good one to gauge viewership, since it's one of the marquis rivalry matchups. This weekend should also be the beginning of the cliff dive (hopefully).

    Plus to get the Ratings Report out on time the Monday Night Game data would not have been compiled in time.

    I know I did not watch.

    I lost interest in spectator sports loooong ago; a major component being the premeditated murder of the TV itself.

    I have since prayed that the TV would be turned off on the entire nation in order to awaken some to the life of clear thought and productivity that awaits.

    The NFL has answered my prayer as many of the former sports fanatics are being slapped to consciousness beyond the boob-toob.

    I agree 100% but in as much as there are I would like to see Americans man up and turn the tables for once. They had a player strike years back how about a fan strike.

    National People's Radio yesterday said the "take a knee" and the Trump stuff will cause ratings to go up for the NFL.

    Claims liberals love it and are tuning in to the NFL to see the players protest.

    I kid you not.

    There ain't enough liberals to keep even a radio show on the air. NPR would be done in a month without taxpayer funding.
    Ever wonder why there is no rush limbaugh of the left? Not enough leftist listeners.

    Good. Let 'em have it. They're catering to those types anyway. I'm guessing the NFL will nip this eventually. However, the NBA will/has picked up the baton. More Libs tune in to the NBA anyway.

    I just talked to my Dad, he cancelled NFL ticket today. They gave him a refund no questions asked.

    This is bigger than the stupid NFL can even imagine.

    Bengals get "WELFARE FANS" that get in for free. When the Bengals fail to meet their Season Ticket goals Hamilton County is on the hook to make up that difference. The county gets the tickets and only NON-TAXPAYERS aka WELFARE recipients can get those tickets.
    Mr. Ham & Eggers / 9-5ers / Working Stiffs get nothing yet pay for those tickets.
