Pegasus Class

Sized for Mobile Frame Zero: Intercept Orbit, a Lego based tabletop tactical game. Based on the Pegasus Class from Mobile Suit Gundam.

The Pegasus Class capital ship is the epitome of the modern mobile frame carrier. 15 by 15 studs, this class jams everything a first tier naval captain could dream of into one elegant package; two hangars with sheltered launch catapults, eight missile tubes, two dual barreled compressed particle cannons, a state of the art command bridge with the latest in electronic warfare protection, two clusters of four powerful engines, and the ability to operate at the bottom of a gravity well due to its advanced anti-grav skirt system that's as expensive to maintain as it is to produce.

The Pegasus class operates as the core of a carrier strike group, often leading sizable groups of frigates and even occasionally other capital ships against the Solar Union's most grave challenges. If there is a system that must absolutely be retaken at all costs, or an enemy fleet forming to strike at a crucial transit gate, nothing draws the line in the proverbial sand like deploying one of the pride and joys of the Solar Union naval forces. Most often seen flying the colors of a Terran Expeditionary Marine flag admiral, rumors suggest that lone Pegasi are known to transit dangerously close to critical facilities for surgical mobile frame strikes with frightening effect. Shadowy and possibly illegal trials for prototype mobile frames, or the actions of an independent and desperate ship trapped behind enemy lines? The distinction, if even these rumors are true, often little comfort to the hulks of enemy ships and mobile frames surely left in it's wake.

For when elite mobile frames are assigned to a Pegasus, woe be unto any who dare cross under the shadow of its wings.

          British analyst: Venezuelan patriotism, Russian support will be crucial to defending Venezuela from US aggression      Cache   Translate Page      
03 February 2019
British political analyst says that Venezuelan patriotism and Russian support will be crucial to defending Venezuela from the aggression of the United States that is now intent on reasserting its authority in the international arena at the expense of the Venezuelan people after its defeat in Syria.
Dr. Marcus Papadopoulos’s remarks came during an interview with the Syria Times e-newspaper about the reasons behind Washington’s currently attempts to engineer a coup in Venezuela and how Caracas can prevent U.S. from reaching its goals.
“There is more than one reason behind Washington’s attempts to engineer a coup in Venezuela.  I hold the view that there are two key reasons accounting for America’s brazen act of aggression against Venezuela’s sovereignty, and that these are equal in significance to each other,” the analyst said.
He made it clear that one of the reasons for why the Americans are currently trying to overthrow the democratically elected president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro is the fact that Venezuela’s oil industry is nationalised and Caracas pursues an independent foreign policy.
“This deprives American energy companies, such as ExxonMobil, from taking control of Venezuela’s energy sector and exploiting it for their own gains,” Dr. Papadopoulos added, asserting that the US has an unquenchable thirst for oil and has, historically, gone to monstrously criminal lengths to secure control of, and access to, the largest oil producing markets in the world, most notably in the Middle East.
“With Venezuela geographically situated in what is, traditionally speaking, America’s sphere of influence, policy-makers in Washington are determined to take control of the country’s oil and gas industry, even if this means using military force to do so, as the Americans did in Iraq,” the analyst stated.
He emphasized that Venezuela is a major energy player in global affairs since it is , according to some sources, home to the world’s largest crude-oil reserves, while the country also sits on one of the largest reserves of natural gas in the world.
The close relationship between Venezuela and Russia
The other reason accounting for the US’ interference in the Latin American country, concerns the close relationship between Venezuela and Russia, according to the analyst, who  indicated that for some 20 years now, Caracas and Moscow have cultivated intimate relations with each other in the political, economic and military spheres.
“Today, Russia is the leading supplier of military hardware to Venezuela, and late last year reports surfaced about Russian plans to construct an air base for itself on the Venezuela island of La Orchila which would host Russian strategic bombers capable of delivering nuclear payloads,” Dr. Papadopoulos said
He went on to say:
“The prospect of a Russian military base in Venezuela, and one that can accommodate Russian nuclear bombers, is something that the Americans will bitterly resist.  Whilst Russia is only responding to the increasingly dangerous presence of NATO on its western border, coupled with both the threatening American missile shield in Eastern Europe and Washington’s diabolical withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, the US is determined that its tormenting behaviour on the international stage remains unimpeded hence why the Americans are trying to overthrow President Maduro and replace him with the pro-American puppet, Juan Guaido.”
The analyst stressed that a Venezuela led by the legally and electorally illegitimate Guaido would end political, economic and military co-operation with Russia and make the Latin American country, once again, subservient to the US.
In a response to a question about how Caracas can avoid a military confrontation with U.S, Dr. Papadopoulos said: “Russia is the only country that can either deter Washington from embarking on a military confrontation with Venezuela or indirectly defeat an American military campaign against Caracas, with the aim of overthrowing the legal government of President Maduro.”
“I draw a comparison with how Russia came to the aid of Cuba, following the Cuban Revolution, when the country was faced with imminent American military aggression with the objective of overthrowing Fidel Castro.  In that situation, Moscow ultimately ensured the survival of the Cuban Revolution and, with it, the independence and sovereignty of Cuba.  Russia will be all-important in defending Venezuela and the Venezuelan people from the clutches of Messrs. Trump and Bolton.”
Besides the essential support of Russia, both economically and militarily, the prowess of the National Bolivarian Armed Forces of Venezuela and the patriotism and fiercely independent nature of the Venezuelan people  are main obstacles for US quick military intervention against Caracas, as stated by Dr. Papadopoulos, who indicated that the US could ignite a war in Venezuela in which large parts of the Venezuela population and the economic infrastructure of the country are consumed by a fireball.
U.S. has no moral compunction in starting a war
“The US has no moral compunction in starting a war – either through an invasion or a bombing campaign, or through supporting illegally armed groups – so as to seize control of a country’s economic and military infrastructure and impose a compliant government in the country’s capital. Washington rained down death and destruction on Syria but the Syrian people, aided by Russia, thwarted American ambitions in the country.  Because of their defeat in Syria, the Americans are angry – very, very angry, and are now intent on reasserting their authority in the international arena at the expense of the Venezuelan people.  So the world could, at some point, be witness to Washington raining down death and destruction on Venezuela and its people,” the analyst affirmed.
He, in addition, made it clear that economic sanctions are one of the most potent weapons in the US’ armoury hence the Venezuelan Government could be vulnerable to Washington’s endeavours to instigate a coup through economic strangulation of Venezuela’s economy.
“However, providing that Venezuela still keeps producing and selling oil and gas, and providing that Moscow is able to economically assist Caracas, then Venezuela stands a reasonably good chance of prevailing against American aggression,” concluded, Dr. Papadopoulos, the founder and editor of Politics First magazine.
On January, 24, 2019, an open letter- signed by 70 scholars and Latin America, political science, and history as well as filmmakers, civil society leaders, and other experts- was issued in opposition to ongoing intervention by the United States in Venezuela.
The letter underlined that actions by the Trump administration and its allies in the hemisphere are almost certain to make the situation in Venezuela worse, leading to unnecessary human suffering, violence, and instability.

          Trump sees bright future for North Korea as 'economic powerhouse' under Kim Jong Un      Cache   Translate Page      


While announcing an upcoming meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, President Donald Trump predicted that North Korea would grow into an "economic powerhouse" under Kim's leadership.

Trump will meet with Kim for the second time in Hanoi, Vietnam, on Feb. 27 and 28.

"North Korea, under the leadership of Kim Jong Un, will become a great Economic Powerhouse," Trump wrote Friday. "He may surprise some but he won't surprise me, because I have gotten to know him & fully understand how capable he is. North Korea will become a different kind of rocket—an Economic one!"

Trump's glowing positivity toward North Korea comes despite the fact that the nation has taken no steps to honor a pledge made in the first Trump/Kim summit to denuclearize.

The result has been a stalemate: North Korea waits for sanctions relief, while the U.S. waits for some sign of denuclearization before providing that relief.

Trump left the first summit by declaring that "everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office. There is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea."

North Korea did not test any ballistic missiles in 2018, but intelligence shows that some North Korea nuclear testing sites are still functional, although not currently in use.

Additionally, U.S. intelligence heads don't believe complete denuclearization is a likely outcome for North Korea.

"While the president has started a promising dialogue with Chairman Kim, we still await concrete steps by North Korea to dismantle the nuclear weapons that threaten our people and our allies in the region," Vice President Mike Pence said in January.

          بهرام قاسمی ادامه فعالیت‌های موشکی ایران را برای تضمین امنیت کشور ضروری دانست      Cache   Translate Page      
به گزارش خبرگزاری دولتی دانشجویان ایران «ایسنا»، بهرام قاسمی سخنگوی وزارت خارجه ایران جمعه ۱۹ بهمن دخالت ایالات متحده در امور ایران را ناشی از سرخوردگی دانست و تاکید کرد که ایران به فعالیت‌های موشکی خود ادامه می‌دهد. او این سخنان را در واکنش به اظهارنظرهای مقامات ایالات متحده از جمله مایک پومپئو درباره فعالیت‌های موشکی ایران بیان کرد. قاسمی با اشاره به جنگ هشت‌ساله ایران‌ـ‌‌‌عراق و حمایت ایالات متحده از عراق در این جنگ برنامه‌های موشکی ایران و خودکفایی نظامی کشور را یک موفقیت مهم دانست. او مدعی شد که موشک‌های ایران برای تضمین امنیت کشور هستند تا بار دیگر جنگی شبیه جنگ هشت‌ساله رخ ندهد. قاسمی تصریح کرد: «ما بارها گفته‌ایم که فعالیت‌های دفاعی و موشکی ایران بازدارنده، بومی و دفاعی است ولی متأسفانه به هر دلیلی طرف‌های آمریکایی علاقه مند نیستند که در این زمینه گوش شنوایی داشته باشند.» قاسمی همچنین تاکید کرد که برنامه‌های موشکی ایران مغایر با قطعنامه ۲۲۳۱ شورای امنیت نیست و این قطعنامه نمی‌تواند مانعی برای پیشرفت توان موشکی ایران شود. اتحادیه اروپا دوشنبه ۱۵ بهمن /۵ فوریه با صدور بیانیه‌ای از ایران خواست به تعهدات خود نسبت به قطعنامه ۲۲۳۱ شورای امنیت پایبند بماند. اتحادیه اروپا در این بیانیه ۱۲ ماده‌ای، نسبت به برنامه موشکی سپاه و افزایش برد و دقت موشک‌های بالستیک ایران ابراز نگرانی کرد. وزارت خارجه ایران در پاسخ به این بیانیه اعلام کرد موضوع فعالیت‌های موشکی ایران صرفاً بومی و دفاعی است و ایران بر سر این موضوع با سایر کشورها مذاکره نمی‌کند. اما دو روز بعد امیرعلی حاجی‌زاده، فرمانده نیروی هوافضای سپاه ۱۸ بهمن رسماً اعلام کرد که آزمایش‌های موشکی شامل موشک‌های برد بلند نیز می‌شود و افزود برنامه موشکی از حدود اختیارات دولت خارج است و دولت در این مورد تنها می‌تواند از سپاه بخواهد که برنامه‌های موشکی را به خاطر مصالح بین‌المللی تبلیغ نکند. در همان روز سپاه پاسداران کارخانه زیرزمینی تولید موشک بالستیک خود را به‌نمایش گذاشت و از موشک بالستیک زمین به زمین «دزفول» با برد بلند رونمایی کرد. در این مراسم مسئولان سپاه گفتند اگر کشورهای غربی و اسرائیل «شیطنت» کنند در همان لحظه اول آن‌ها را آماج موشک‌های خود قرار می‌دهند. این نمایش با موجی از واکنش‌های مقامات ایالات متحده همراه شد. سخنگوی وزارت امور خارجه ایالات متحده در این رابطه گفت که کشورش در مقابله با ایران سرسخت و بی‌گذشت خواهد بود و به این منظور «همه» تحریم‌ها علیه ایران را به اجرا خواهد گذاشت. قطعنامه ۲۲۳۱ شورای امنیت پس از توافق هسته‌ای برجام با همراهی قدرت‌های جهانی ۱+۵ در سال ۲۰۱۵ تصویب شد و بر اساس آن تهران متعهد شد که تا هشت سال آزمایش موشک‌های بالستیک را که قادر به حمل کلاهک هسته‌ای هستند، متوقف کند.

          These big problems doomed the USS Fitzgerald before its deadly crash      Cache   Translate Page

  • The USS Fitzgerald was plagued with problems that potentially doomed the ship before it set sail on that fateful voyage that killed 7 US Navy sailors.
  • The US Navy destroyer collided with a cargo ship off the coast of Japan in June 2017.
  • A new investigative report from ProPublica called "Fight the Ship: Death and valor on a warship doomed by its own Navy" reveals just how bad the situation on the destroyer was before the accident.

A new investigation into a deadly nighttime collision involving a U.S. Navy destroyer heading toward a secret mission in the South China Sea reveals several warning signs leading up to the tragic accident that took seven sailors' lives.

ProPublica, a nonprofit that produces investigative journalism, published a series of reports this week on the destroyer Fitzgerald's June 2017 collision with a cargo ship off the coast of Japan. Titled "Fight the ship: Death and valor on a warship doomed by its own Navy," the report reveals multiple troubling mistakes made by Navy leaders, some of which were previously undisclosed.

It also details courageous actions and heartbreaking choices from the ship's crew.

ProPublica combed through more than 13,000 pages of investigative records and interviewed scores of Fitzgerald crew members, Navy officers and maritime experts. Here's a look at some of the report's findings:

1. Incomplete certifications

Even as the destroyer was headed on a secret mission toward contested waters in the South China Sea, the Fitzgerald had not met its readiness requirements.

"The Navy required destroyers to pass 22 certification tests to prove themselves seaworthy and battle-ready before sailing," ProPublica reported. "The Fitzgerald had passed just seven of these tests."

Perhaps most troubling, according to the report, is that the Fitz "was not even qualified to conduct its chief mission, anti-ballistic missile defense."



2. There were other close calls

As previously reported by Navy Times, the Fitzgerald had a series of near misses before the June 17, 2017, collision with a merchant vessel.

The destroyer, ProPublica reported, had "maneuvered dangerously close to vessels on at least three occasions." But the incidents had gone mostly unreported. Eric Uhden, a prior-enlisted conning officer responsible for the safe movement of the ship, even told the Fitzgerald's second-in-command, Cmdr. Sean Babbitt, that there was a serious problem on the ship, ProPublica reported.

"And the only way for things to get better here is for us to have a serious accident or someone to die," Uhden added.



3. A ship-wide blackout

Spc. 1st Class Peter Burghart/U.S. Navy via AP

About a week before the collision, there was a fire aboard the Fitzgerald, according to ProPublica. It resulted in a ship-wide blackout, and the classified and unclassified email systems failed.

"Officers used Gmail instead," ProPublica reported.

Già fatto: nessuno dei due ha avuto un miglioramento!
è successo quando eravamo piccoli e nostra madre è andata via per una settimana: ha affidato il compito del trattamento alla pro-zia Ester, che già all'epoca ci vedeva poco.
Risultato? Io e Marco ci siamo tenuti i rispettivi sintomi da allergia: quando Mamma è tornata e si è resa conto del pasticcio, ha chiamato il Dottor XX che ci ha fatto prendere il Ribes nigrum sotto forma di Macerato di Gemme (fitoterapico!) e il rimedio "giusto".
In tre giorni (io) e quattro giorni (Marco) abbiamo avuto il miglioramento e poi la scomparsa dei sintomi, che si sono ri-presentati (attenuati) un anno dopo per poi sparire definitivamente!

Lei non si è firmata ma il post precedente è opera di Lavinia, che quando ha qualche sintomo di raffreddamento o il mal di stomaco "da stress" (come dice lei) si prende il suo costituzionale e riparte come un missile!

Это цитата сообщения Dmitry_Shvarts Оригинальное сообщение ✨ Суперхит XX века. Status Quo «In the Army Now»

Звезды в "Музыкальной гостиной" Легенды рока «Status Quo»

 

Песня «You’re In the Army Now» «не принадлежит» группе Status Quo: они её купили! После чего перезаписали, совсем чу-чуть изменив её, а потом стали знаменитыми. Теперь немного поподробнее...

В 1981-ом году братья Boland & Boland представили миру свой альбом The Domino Theory, в котором на первом месте шла композиция под названием «You’re In the Army Now». Все очень просто. Status Quo не придумывала всемирный хит, она просто взяла чужую композицию, сократила название и немного изменила текст, причём она внесла настолько несущественные изменения ... Впрочем, вы можете в этом сами убедиться.

 

Как придумывалась песня...

«You’re In the Army Now» задумывалась группой Boland & Boland антивоенная, и должна была символизировать протест против политики, проводимой странами-агрессорами. Альбом коллектива носит название «Теория домино», и да, это не спроста. Смысл, который заложен в альбоме, связан с политикой, проводимой США во Вьетнаме, Латинской Америке и т.д.

 
 

Bolland & Bolland. Ферди и Роб Болланды в радиостудии

Пластинка рассказывает историю человека, у которого нет выбора, солдата, которого послали воевать куда-то и зачем-то. Его вынуждают делать то, от чего он не в праве отказаться. В рамках альбома «The Domino Theory», группа повествует нам о «приключениях» бравого солдата, заложника ситуации. «You’re In the Army Now» - это вводная часть, начало его приключений...

 



Песня добилась хороших результатов. В исполнении авторов композиции она смогла попасть на 1-ую строчку хит-парада Норвегии и на 2-ую позицию чарта Швеции. Альбом понравился как слушателям, так и музыкальным критикам, последние отзывались о нём следующими словами: «отличный концептуальным альбом, заставляющий задуматься о жизненно важных проблемах». Тогда же он понравился и Фрэнсису Росси, об этом чуть ниже...   

 

 

Песня в руках Status Quo

 

Status Quo сделала из обычной, известной только в нескольких странах, композиции всемирный хит. Status Quo знаменита своим ритмичным рок-н-ролльным звучанием, которое вместе с буги-вуги и ритм-энд-блюзом даёт отличный результат: группа до сих пор занимает одиннадцатое место в Англии по количеству попавших в чарты хитов-синглов.

 



Мы не знаем, какие именно причины сподвигли группу взять композицию, которая существенно отличалась по стилю от того, что группа записывала до этого. Песню «You’re In the Army Now» нашла основателя группы Status Quo Фрэнсиса Росси, когда тот был в Германии. Он её услышал, ему понравилось и ... как результат: группа выпускает сингл в 1986-ом году, записывает на него клип в том же году, называет одноименно весь альбом и в одночасье становится знаменитой. Скорее всего, создатели хита, братья Boland & Boland, получают свою копейку с продажи дисков «You’re In the Army Now», и это, конечно же, радует! Но, опять же, это информация неточная...

«In the Army Now» - Status Quo

A vacation in a foreign land
Uncle Sam does the best he can
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now
 
Now you remember what the draftman said
Nothing to do all day but stay in bed
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now
 
You be the hero of the neiborhood
Nobody knows that you left for good
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now
 
Smiling faces as you wait to land
But once you get there no one gives a damn
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now
 
Hand grenades flying over your head
Missiles flying over your head
If you want to survive get out of bed
You're in the army now. Oh, oh, you're in the army now
 
Shots ring out in the dead of night
The sergeant calls: stand up and fight
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now
 
You've got your orders better shoot on sight
Your finger's on the trigger but it don't seem right
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now
 
Night is falling and you just can't see
Is this illusion or reality
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now
 
Каникулы за границей,
Дядя Сэм сделал все, что мог,
Ты теперь в армии,
Ты теперь в армии.
 
Ты помнишь, что тебе сказали в военкомате,
«Делать нечего, кроме как валяться в постели».
Ты теперь в армии,
Ты теперь в армии.
 
Ты станешь героем окрестности,
Никто не знает, что ты больше не вернешься,
Ты теперь в армии,
Ты теперь в армии.
 
Все улыбаются, пока ждут тебя,
Но как только приедешь, всем на тебя наплевать.
Ты теперь в армии,
Ты теперь в армии.
 
Ручные гранаты летают над головой,
Ракеты летают над головой,
Если хочешь выжить, вылезай из постели.
Ты теперь в армии,
Ты теперь в армии.
 
В глубине ночи слышны выстрелы,
Сержант командует: «Корпус, к бою готовсь!»
Ты теперь в армии, 
Ты теперь в армии.
 
Получил свое задание — стреляй без промедления,
Твой палец на курке, но все равно что-то не так.
Ты теперь в армии,
Ты теперь в армии.
 
Наступает ночь, и уже не понятно —
Это иллюзия или реальность,
Ты теперь в армии,
Ты теперь в армии.

Немного про «Status Quo»...

 
 
 
 

Status Quo - британская рок-группа, известная у себя на родине за свой 12-ти тактовый буги-рок, который они играли, начиная с 70-х годов. Между 1968-ым и 1990-ым у них было множество хитов, около 22 попали в «Top 10» Великобритании, включая самый популярный «Down Down» 1974 года. В Америке же самым популярным хитом была психоделическая песня «Pictures Of Matchstick Men», которая достигла 12-ой строчки в 1968-ом.

Первоначально коллектив назывался The Scorpions, он был основан вокалистом Фрэнсисом Росси и басистом Аланом Ланкастером ещё в школе в Лондоне вместе с одноклассниками: барабанщиком Аланом Кии клавишником Джесси Яворски.

 
 

Status Quo, 1970-е

Первое выступление «Scorpions» состоялось в 1963 году в «Samuel Jones Sports Club» в Далвиче, в Лондоне. В то время группа исполняла только кавера.

В 1963 году коллектив изменил «Scorpions» на «The Spectres». Произошла смена и в репертуаре, группа теперь начала исполнять свои собственные композиции. Это был Ланкастер - он первый начал писать свой собственный материал - его первой композицией была песня под названием «Ты моя девушка». Тогда же, в 66-ом, коллектив подписал с Piccadilly Records контракт на пять лет. У них вышло три сингла, которые были обречены провалиться в хит-парадах.

В 67-ом году, когда группа начала исследовать психоделию, она несколько раз меняла имя коллектива. Сначала на «Traffic Jam», но была вынуждена снова сменить прозвище, так как группа «Traffic» Стиви Винвуда называлась практически так же. Потом, в конце 67-го года коллектив стал именоваться «The Status Quo», тогда же к ним присоединился близкий друг Росси, гитарист Рик Парфитт, он вошёл в первоначальный состав группы.

 
 

Рик Парфитт

The Status Quo открывали благотворительную акцию «Live Aid» в Уэмбли в июле 1985-го. Первой песней, которую они сыграли, был их знаменитый кавер на песню Джона Фогерти «Rockin 'All Over The World».

 
 

Live Aid, 1985

 

Росси и Парфитт снялись в паре эпизодических ролей в сериале «Улица Коронации» в 2005 году. По сюжету, они были втянуты в драку с бездельником Лесом Баттерсби в баре "Rovers Return", а затем сыграли «live» на его концерте в качестве компенсации.

 

Status Quo организовала рекламную кампанию «Цены снижаются» для австралийского супермаркета "Coles", в которой они использовали текст песни «Down Down». Это был самый запрашиваемый видеоролик в "гугле". Австралийскую рекламу 2012 года супермаркета с участием группы Status Quo хотели увидеть многие, масло в огонь подливали сми, которые называли затею глупой.

 



Несколько хитов Status Quo, в том числе «Caroline», «Paper Plane» и «Down Down», были созданы вокалистом Фрэнсисом Росси вместе с тур-менеджером группы и гитаристом Бобом Янгом.

 

Гитарист Рик Парфитт, как правило, объединялся с клавишником Энди Бауном (они вместе написали хит-сингл "Whatever You Want") или басистом Джоном Эдвардсом. Фрэнсис Росси потом рассказывал:

«С Риком очень сложно записываться. Допустим, к нему пришла идея, и, если вы скажете: «то, что нужно», он ответит, что может лучше... - и он играет и играет, и, в конце концов, теряет это. Поэтому, когда он и Джон пишутся вместе, они окружены четырьмя микрофонами, которые пишут все изменения и следят за происходящим».
 
 
 
 

Status Quo выпустили свой первый полнометражный фильм «Bula Quo!» в 2013 году. В поддержку фильма, незадолго до его выхода, группа выпустила двойной диск с тем же названием. Росси признался, что группа не собиралась посвящать альбом фильму: «Мы пошли и налегке снялись в фильме»; а они сказали нам: «Здесь должен быть саундтрек». Тогда я подумал: «Саундтрек? Возможно, это надо будет сделать вместе с группой».

 

Status Quo вошла в Книгу рекордов Гиннесса в 1991 году: они исполнили четыре концерта в четырёх разных местах за один день: в Международном центре Шеффилда, в Шотландском выставочном и конференц-центре Глазго, в Национальном выставочном центре Бирмингема и на Арене Уэмбли, всё это было в рамках тура «Rock Till You Drop», посвященного их 25-летию. Группа отыграла четыре концерта за 11 часов и 11 минут.

В последнее время Рик Парфитт столкнулся с проблемами здоровья. Ему делали четырехкратное сердечное шунтирование в 1997 году, у него нашли рак горла в 2005, и у него было три сердечных приступа: в 2011, 2014 и июне 2016 годах. Последний заставил уйти Рика из коллектива.

Ланкастер и Коглан покинули группы в 80-х, но вернулись для туров в 2013 и 2014 годах. Последний концерт, когда квартет играл вместе датируется 2014-ым годом - «The Frantic Four's Final Fling: Live at the Dublin 02 Arena».

 



Парфит скончался в больнице в Марбелье, Испания, 24 декабря 2016 года от инфекции. Он скончался после того, как врачи выявили осложнения после травмы плеча, которую Парфит получил в результате падения.

Общий мировой рекорд продаж группы превышает 118 миллионов единиц.

Фрэнсис Росси сказал: «100 синглов кажутся невероятным событием даже для меня, я записал их все! Когда мы начинали, мы были бы счастливы хотя пару бы пару лет прожить в этом бизнесе, поэтому достичь этого рубежа просто невероятно».  

 



На счету Status Quo 106 выступлений на телепрограмме «Top of the Pops» на BBC. Это рекорд, такого результата нет ни у одной другой группы.

Суммарно за всё время Status Quo продержались 415 недель в английском чарте синглов - это одиннадцатое место за всю историю музыки.

У группы было 43 хитовых альбома (27 студийных альбомов, 11 сборников, 5 концертных альбомов) в чарте British Albums Chart - это больше, чем у любой другой группы, не считая The Rolling Stones. Они уступают только The Rolling Stones в хитовых альбомах Великобритании

 

По оценкам, за свою 48-летнюю историю группа отыграла более 6000 живых выступлений - общая аудитория на концертах - больше 25-ти миллионов человек. При этом группа проехала более четырех миллионов миль и провела 23 года вдали от дома.

В 1991 году Status Quo были удостоены премии «BRIT» за огромнейший вклад в музыкальную индустрию: наследие группы было официально признано,

«Aquostic (Stripped Bare)» был самым продаваемым независимым британским альбомом 2014 года и помог коллективу отметить их 500-ую неделю в чартах Великобритании (имеется в виду не сингловый, а альбомный чарт).




Не так давно, 9 лет назад... Не молодые уже ребята решили повторно сыграть на тех же аккордах и перезаписать клип. По заявлению Фрэнсиса Росси, они это сделали в «поддержку армии Великобритании и союзных сил в мире». Деньги, вырученные с продаж сингла были направлены в организации «Help for Heroes» (помощь раненным военнослужащим) и «British Forces Foundation» (реабилитация бывших военных).

 




Конечно, это выглядит очень благородно, эстетично и т.д. Но если вспомнить, с какой идеей Boland & Boland писали своё произведение, а именно, они выступали против войны в целом и за свободу человека. Посыл похож, только направления разные. Boland & Boland в своих песнях обличали политику и армию, тонко намекая, что армии и войны в целом не нужны простым людям, они нужны политикам для достижения своих целей. А Status Quo изменив пару строчек в первоначальном тексте, добавив нужную окраску и сделав звучание жестче, сделала из песни военно-патриотический «гимн»: из пацифистского концептуального альбома Boland & Boland получилась «военная доктрина» Status Quo.

 



У нас на Родине песня, конечно же, стала хитом. На неё было записано огромное количество каверов...

 



Среди них есть и смешные. Люди переписывают, переводят и поют свои вариации на тему «войны», получая от этого несказанное удовольствие. Слава богу, в нашей стране все в порядке с юмором и шутками...

Very good account. According to an article Popular Science https://www.popsci.com/visa-bans-make-united-states-less-secure Qian was accused of being a communist and lost his security clearance. "Thirteen years before, while in grad school, Qian attended a social event that the FBI suspected was a meeting of the Pasadena Communist Party. They rejected Qian's application for U.S. citizenship. He lost his security clearance and was placed under house arrest. This was after years of contributing to the United States' aeronautic advancement. "Thirteen years before, while in grad school, Qian attended a social event that the FBI suspected was a meeting of the Pasadena Communist Party. They rejected Qian's application for U.S. citizenship. He lost his security clearance and was placed under house arrest. This was after years of contributing to the United States' aeronautic advancement. The last time the U.S. used security fears to steer its immigration policies, they chased away one of its top scientific minds and helped jumpstart a nuclear missile complex that now targets the U.S. As Cal Tech noted in an alumni award given to him in 1979, “No evidence was produced to substantiate the allegations, and [Qian] and his colleagues in academia, government, and industry protested that they were nonsense.” It didn't matter. Fear of outsiders trumped facts. Despite having so clearly contributed to U.S. security in the past and so evidently being a valued asset for the future, Qian was deported back to China in 1955. Dan Kimbal, then head of the US Navy, angrily commented, “It was the stupidest thing this country ever did. He was no more a Communist than I was, and we forced him to go.” "In China, the returning Qian was instead treated as a hero. Chinese leader Mao Zedong saw his expertise as a way to jumpstart China’s nuclear, missile, and space programs. Qian was set to work within the Chinese Academy of Science and helped establish the Institute of Mechanics in Beijing. "Over the next several decades, Qian became known as the “Father of Chinese Rocketry.” He worked on programs that ranged from the Dongfeng missile, the family of ballistic missiles that still make up China’s strategic arsenal that now targets the U.S. and its allies, the Chinese nuclear weapons program, and the Long March rockets that would carry China’s first satellite and then taikonauts into space. Qian’s impact was such that his old alma mater Cal Tech named him “one of the great scientist-engineers of the past century,” while science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke would memorialize Qian by naming a spaceship after him in the science fiction novel 2010: Odyssey Two." The underlying factor is American arrogance and preconceived notion that the Chinese cannot innovate or invent. In the minds of the Americans there's not much one scientist do in an impoverished China (at that time). All the accusations of stealing technology from US are actually laughable because it is a Chinese (Quantity Xueshen) who was instrumental in developing US's ICBM and space shuttle programmes. It is Chinese intellectual property returning to China. History seems to be repeating itself. You can still hear silly comments that China can only copy and has no inventiveness.
          Hoodlums attack APC campaign rally, burn nine cars      Cache   Translate Page      


Suspected hoodlums on Saturday attacked the campaign convoy of the All Progressives Congress in the Dei-Dei axis of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

The APC campaign convoy comprising the FCT Minister’s Chief of Staff, Bashir Mai-Borno, the APC Chairman in the FCT, Abdulmalik Usman, the Director-General, FCT Campaign Council, Musa Mohammed, candidates of the party to various offices in the forthcoming election as well as other supporters, was attacked while on its way to the palace of the Sarkin Jiwa.

About nine vehicles in the convoy were set ablaze while several others had their windscreens smashed. The APC convoy was reportedly pelted with rocks and other deadly missiles while few individuals sustained injuries in the attack.

The Media aide to the FCT Minister, Abubakar Sani, explained in a statement that other motorists were also not spared as their vehicles suffered serious damage, adding that no life was lost.

The hoodlums were said to have blockaded the road around the Timber Market, DeiDei, preventing the APC convoy from proceeding to the palace of the Sarkin Jiwa.


They were said to have taken advantage of a Peoples Democratic Party rally which was also being held around the Dei Dei Timber Market, to unleash mayhem on the APC Campaign convoy.

The security detail attached to the office of the FCT Minister and others covering the event, however, responded by firing shots in the air to calm the situation.

Unfortunately, the convoy was attacked again around the same spot while it was returning from the palace and heading to the grand finale of the APC FCT Campaign at the Old Parade Ground. It was during this second confrontation that nine vehicles were set ablaze.

Reacting after the incident, Mohammed described the attack as unfortunate, adding that intelligence information suggested that the attack might be premeditated.

The DG was, however, quick to dispel the notion that some PDP supporters or ethnic elements were behind the incident.

Οι πυραυλάκατοι κλάσης Ρουσσέν ή Super Vita, θεωρούνται από τα πλέον ολοκληρωμένα, και σίγουρα προηγμένα πλοία του Πολεμικού μας Ναυτικού.

Καθώς όμως οι εποχές που οι Styx βύθιζαν το Εϊλάτ χωρίς τιμωρία έχουν περάσει, τα πράγματα δεν ήταν πάντα εύκολα για τις πυραυλακάτους. Όσο βελτιώνονται τα μέσα επιτήρησης, έγκαιρης προειδοποίησης, αλλά και πολλαπλασιάζονται τα έξυπνα όπλα, οι πυραυλάκατοι μπορούν να μετατραπούν από θύτες σε εύκολα θύματα.

Αυτός είναι και ο λόγος ύπαρξης των πυραυλακάτων Super Vita. Προφανώς είχε γίνει κατανοητό πως τα OtoMelara των Combattante II/IIIA/IIIB και ο λοιπός ελαφρύς εξοπλισμός, δεν επαρκούσαν για την αντιμετώπιση των σύγχρονων απειλών. Στις αρχές της δεκαετίας του 2000, το ΠΝ κατέληξε σε ένα εξαιρετικά προηγμένο σχέδιο, με βαρύ οπλισμό. Αυτό που «ξεχωρίζει» είναι ο εκτοξευτής Mk31 με τους 21 πυραύλους RAM BlockI, που επιτρέπει στο πλοίο να αντιμετωπίζει όχι μόνο αντιπλοϊκούς πυραύλους, αλλά και επιθέσεις κορεσμού από την εχθρική αεροπορία. Με 3D radar MW08, ΚΠΜ Tacticos και ολοκληρωμένο σύστημα ESM, οι Ρουσσέν είναι πραγματικά σχεδόν μια μικρή κορβέτα σε επίπεδο δυνατοτήτων.

Το πρόβλημα είναι πως το ΠΝ, με την ένδεια σύγχρονων μέσων που το χαρακτηρίζει, αντιμετωπίζει τις Ρουσσέν, σε επίπεδο αποστολών, σαν κορβέτες κι όχι σαν πυραυλακάτους. Συχνά-πυκνά τους ανατίθενται αποστολές που υπό κανονικές συνθήκες θα έπρεπε να ανατεθούν σε μεγαλύτερα πλοία. Για παράδειγμα, βλέπουμε Ρουσσέν στην Ανατολική Μεσόγειο, ή σε αποστολές του ΠΝ στην Μαύρη Θάλασσα, ενώ η αποστολή των πλοίων αυτών είναι αυστηρά οι αποστολές που πρέπει να αναλαμβάνει μια πυραυλάκατος.

Σαν πυραυλάκατος μια Ρουσσέν μπορεί να επιτελέσει σχετικά επιτυχώς τα καθήκοντά της. Στήνοντας «καρτέρι» στα ίδια σημεία που εδώ και δεκαετίες κρύβονται οι Combattante, μπορούν να εξαπολύσουν τους εκπληκτικά φονικούς Exocet σε μεγάλες αποστάσεις, δημιουργώντας χάος στον εχθρικό στόλο, πριν αυτός έρθει σε επαφή με τις μεγάλες μονάδες του ΠΝ. Μερικοί αναγνώστες θα έχουν ήδη μείνει στο «σχετικά επιτυχώς» και προφανώς θα αναμένουν εξηγήσεις.

Όταν σχεδιάστηκαν οι Ρουσσέν, οι απειλές ήταν συγκεκριμένες. Η ΤΗΚ είχε περιορισμένα μέσα προκειμένου να καταφέρει να τις καταστρέψει, ακόμη κι αν κατάφερνε να τις εντοπίσει. Η απειλή τότε ήταν κατά κύριο λόγο ή αεροσκάφη που από μικρές αποστάσεις θα έριχναν κάποιο κατευθυνόμενο πύραυλο (πχ Maverick) ή θα προσπαθούσαν με strafing ή βόμβες βομβιδίων να τις βγάλουν εκτός μάχης. Φυσικά η τελευταία απειλή ήταν άλλοι πύραυλοι από πλοία, δηλαδή Harpoon στην περίπτωσή μας.

Τα πάντα τα λύσει η ύπαρξη του MW08 με το RAM BlockI. 21 πύραυλοι ήταν υπεράρκετοι για την αντιμετώπιση της απειλής. Ακόμη και τορπίλες υποβρυχίων θα μπορούσαν να αντιμετωπίσουν, αρκεί να είχαν εντοπιστεί εγκαίρως, ώστε να μπορούσαν να κάνουν ελιγμούς με μέγιστη ταχύτητα (προσοχή, μιλάμε πολύ «γενικά»). Γενικά οι Ρουσσέν ήταν ότι ήταν και οι ΜΕΚΟ200ΗΝ στην εποχή τους, τα καλύτερα εξοπλισμένα πλοία της κατηγορίας τους. Ξέρουμε, μείνατε κάποιοι στο «ήταν«. Δυστυχώς, εξηγούμαστε.

Η πρώτη Ρουσσέν παραδόθηκε το 2005, τότε ίσχυαν όλα όσα είπαμε. Οι τελευταίες δυο Ρουσσέν (από τις 7 συνολικά) είναι άγνωστο πότε θα παραδοθούν, αν και θεωρητικά την 6η πρέπει να την έχουμε μέσα στο καλοκαίρι του 2019. Τα Ναυπηγεία Ελευσίνας έχουν όλα τα υποσυστήματα που απαιτούνται, για να παραδώσουν, εν έτει 2019, ένα πλοίο με τεχνολογία του 2005. Δεν φταίνε τα Ναυπηγεία, ή μόνο τα Ναυπηγεία, αλλά μάλλον ο ανύπαρκτος προγραμματισμός μας. Χαιρόμαστε δηλαδή, που μάλλον, θα παραλάβουμε το 2019 ένα πλοίο, που έχει μια τεχνολογία 15 ετών -ή και περισσότερο- παλιά;

Ας εξηγηθούμε. Το TACTICOS (του 2005) και το MW08 δεν έχουν και πολύ σχέση με τα TACTICOS της Thales σήμερα (εντάξει, ίσως μόνο στο interface, αλλά στο hardware έχουμε πλέον την μέρα με την νύχτα), ούτε και το MW08 με πιο σύγχρονα 3D ραντάρ όπως το SMART-S Mk2. Μπορεί να έχουν πλέον μια -ας πούμε- ομοιογενοποίηση με τα ραντάρ των προηγούμενων Ρουσσέν, αλλά και των ΜΕΚΟ200ΗΝ, αλλά (α) οι ΜΕΚΟ θα αλλάξουν ραντάρ (hopefully) και (β) το MW08 είναι πλέον αρκετά πίσω τεχνολογικά.

Αυτό όμως που δεν έχουν σκεφτεί κάποιοι, ακόμη κι αν ξεπεράσουμε αυτά που αναφέρουμε σαν μειονεκτήματα, είναι πως οι Ρουσσέν δεν είναι επαρκώς εξοπλισμένες για να ανταπεξέλθουν στις παρούσες αλλά και μελλοντικές συνθήκες μια πολεμικής αναμέτρησης της περιοχής μας. Οι απειλές έχουν πολλαπλασιαστεί και η ύπαρξη ενός Mk31 με κάποιους RAM δεν επαρκούν για να φέρει σε πέρας την αποστολή της μια πυραυλάκατος. Ξέρουμε ότι σοκάρουμε πολλούς, αλλά οι Super Vita, είναι το πιο εξελιγμένο πλοίο επιφανείας του ΠΝ, αλλά σίγουρα απέχει πολύ από το να το χαρακτηρίσουμε προηγμένο. Ας σταματήσουμε να κρυβόμαστε πίσω από το δάκτυλό μας. Καλές οι Super Vita, αλλά λίγες (από όλες τις απόψεις).

Πλέον, τα μέσα της ΤΗΚ έχουν πολλαπλασιαστεί, καθώς οι Τούρκοι έχουν στην διάθεσή τους ένα πλήθος πυραυλικών μέσων που μπορούν να πλήξουν στόχους κρίσιμους όπως οι Ρουσσέν. Πλέον οι AGM-65 είναι ίσως παρελθόν, καθώς η ΤΗΚ έχει να διαλέξει ανάμεσα από πολύ περισσότερα όπλα, που μάλιστα τα κατασκευάζει και εγχώρια η Τουρκία.
Το χειρότερο όμως δεν είναι τόσο τα μαχητικά F-16, όσο τα UCAV ANKA και Bayraktar. Τα UCAV αυτά μπορούν όχι απλά να προδώσουν πολύ εύκολα και γρήγορα τις θέσεις των ΤΠΚ του ΠΝ, αλλά και να τις πλήξουν καίρια με πυραύλους όπως ο UMTAS.
Σε όσους σπεύσουν να πουν πως η ακτίνα δράσης του είναι μικρότερη του RAM, θα πούμε πως -για παράδειγμα- ο UMTAS έχει μεγαλύτερη ακτίνα αν εκτοξευτεί από μεγάλο ύψος, ενώ είναι πρακτικά μη ανασχέσιμος. Σημειώνουμε πως σύντομα UMTAS θα δούμε και σε ελαφρά σκάφη του Τουρκικού Ναυτικού, που δεν μπορούν να χτυπηθούν με Harpoon ή Exocet. Φυσικά το τουρκικό ρεπερτόριο δεν εξαντλείται στον UMTAS.
Baynunah Class, μια εξαιρετικά οπλισμένη ελαφριά κορβέτα ή βαριά ΤΠΚ, όπως θέλετε πείτε την!

Και όλα αυτά, ενώ ακόμη δεν έχουμε εξετάσει τις απειλές που θα αντιμετωπίσουν σε περιοχές όπως η Ανατολική Μεσόγειος, το νησιωτικό σύμπλεγμα της Μεγίστης και τα παράλια της Κύπρου, που πιθανότατα να πρέπει να δράσουν. Εκεί οι απειλές είναι τόσες πολλές, που ακόμη και σύγχρονη φρεγάτα πολλαπλών ρόλων θα έχει θέμα. Η φίλη και σύμμαχος Αίγυπτος, που έχει χάσει ουκ ολίγες πυραυλακάτους σε ναυμαχίες, και «έχει πάθει κι έχει μάθει» εξόπλισε όσο μπορούσε καλύτερα τις πυραυλακάτους Ambassador MK III, προσθέτοντας στο Mk31 και ένα Phalanx Block1B.
Οι Ambassador MK III είναι αναμφίβολα εντυπωσιακής ισχύος πλοία, και σίγουρα με υψηλότερη επιβιωσιμότητα από τις Ρουσσέν. Αλλά και πάλι, η προσθήκη όπλων σαν το Phalanx δεν θα λυθούν τα επιχειρησιακά προβλήματα που θα αντιμετωπίσουν οι ελληνικές ΤΠΚ σε ένα φλεγόμενο Αιγαίο (αν και θα έλυνε πολλά προβλήματα που θα αντιμετωπίσουν οι Ρουσσέν σε καιρί επιχειρήσεων).


Η Baynunah class μπορεί να φιλοξενήσει κανονικά και ελαφρύ ελικόπτερο
Το ιδανικότερο λοιπόν θα ήταν να προστεθεί ένα όπλο με μεγαλύτερη εμβέλεια που θα μπορούσε να προσφέρει έναν επιπλέον βαθμό προστασίας σε μια «Super Vita Upgraded (διαλέξαμε τυχαία τον τίτλο, προφανώς και μιλάμε για οποιοδήποτε τύπο). Ο πύραυλος αυτός υπάρχει ήδη στο ΠΝ, και δεν είναι άλλος από τον ESSM. Αντιλαμβανόμαστε την αρχική σας έκπληξη, καθώς δεν συνηθίζεται πλοία αυτού του μεγέθους να μην φέρουν τόσο «βαρύ» οπλισμό αλλά υπάρχει και αντίλογος.
Η κλάση που θα πρέπει να δούμε, σαν ιδέα κυρίως, και μετά σαν υλοποίηση, όχι πια σαν «μεγάλη πυραυλάκατο» αλλά μάλλον μια μικρή κορβέτα κλάσης Baynunah των ΗΑΕ. Το πλοίο, σχεδίασης CMN, φυσικά φέρει πυροβόλο OtoMelara 76mm, 2 Rheinmetall MLG 27 27mm, 8 πυραύλους Exocet BlockIII, Mk49 με 21 RAM, 4πλό Mk56 με 8 (!) ESSM, έχει ελικοδρόμιο για ελικόπτερο επιπέδου Dauphin, μπορεί να εκτελεί επιχειρήσεις ναρκοπολέμου!
Φέρει προηγμένο ραντάρ Sea Giraffe, κι όλα αυτά με μόλις 37 άτομα πλήρωμα και εκτόπισμα κάτω των 1000 τόνων (μόλις 930, όταν η Super Vita πλησιάζει τους 680 έμφορτη). Σε όλα αυτά, προσθέστε κι ένα μικρό sonar που εντοπίζει νάρκες και άλλα εμπόδια.


Mk56 με 8 ESSM
Πλοία με οπλισμό αυτού του επιπέδου, μπορούν άνετα να «παίξουν» το ρόλο που ζητά το ΠΝ να παίξουν οι Ρουσσέν σήμερα. Φυσικά το κόστος ανά ημέρα επιχειρήσεων είναι πολύ χαμηλότερο από αυτό μιας φρεγάτας, ενώ το συνολικό κόστος του προγράμματος των 6 συνολικά πλοίων ήταν κάτω από 1 δις δολάρια το 2009. Θεωρούμε πως σε σημερινές τιμές, μαζί με τα όπλα, ένα αντίστοιχο πρόγραμμα, που θα μπορούσε να υλοποιηθεί 100% σε ελληνικό ναυπηγείο θα κόστιζε μαζί με τον οπλισμό πολύ λιγότερο από 1,5 εκ. ευρώ. Δηλαδή, το ΠΝ θα μπορούσε να εξοικονομεί πολλά χρήματα από το να κινεί τις κοστοβόρες φρεγάτες του.

Δηλαδή, με κάτι παραπάνω από 1 δις ευρώ (ας πούμε 1,2 δις ευρώ), το ΠΝ θα αποκτούσε 6 πλοία «νέας φιλοσοφίας», με πολύ μικρό κόστος χρήσης, που θα απαιτούσαν όλα μαζί μόλις πλήρωμα 1,5 φρεγάτας, θα έφεραν 48 αντιπλοϊκούς πυραύλους Exocet BlkIII, 48 ESSM, σχεδόν 130 RAM, θα είχε μια τεράστια ισχύ πυρός σκορπισμένη σε όλο το Αιγαίο, και θα μπορούσε να φιλοξενεί μικρά ελικόπτερα.

Μήπως είναι μια λύση που θα πρέπει να δούμε; Και φυσικά, μιας και δεν μιλάμε για πανάκριβες λύσεις, αλλά και έχουμε μια ικανή «ποσότητα», μεγάλο μέρος της επένδυσης θα είχε υψηλή προστιθέμενη αξία αν κατασκευάζονταν σε ελληνικό ναυπηγείο. Και ας κάνουμε απλά μαθηματικά. Ας κάνουμε τα πλοία αυτά 12, τα οποία θα πλαισιώσουν τις 4 εκσυγχρονισμένες ΜΕΚΟ200ΗΝ (και τις δυο φρεγάτες AAW που θα αγοράσουμε ίσως στο μέλλον). Τι παραπάνω χρειαζόμαστε;

 Κλείνοντας την σημερινή άποψη, θα πούμε πως δεν θέλουμε να επαναφέρουμε το δίλημμα κορβέτα ή φρεγάτα, ούτε να μιλήσουμε για κορβετοφρεγάτες ή φρεγατοκορβέτες. Θέλουμε να δείξουμε πως με απλό τρόπο, μπορούμε να επανακτήσουμε την πρωτοκαθεδρία στο Αιγαίο, και να πάψουμε να ακολουθούμε τις εξελίξεις.

War is first and foremost a profitable racket.

As a former member of the House of Representatives, I remember 16 years of congressional hearings where pedigreed experts came to advocate wars in testimony based on circular, rococo thinking devoid of depth, reality, and truth. I remember other hearings where the Pentagon was unable to reconcile over $1 trillion in accounts, lost track of $12 billion in cash sent to Iraq, and rigged a missile-defense test so that an interceptor could easily home in on a target. War is first and foremost a profitable racket.

          “Death to America” Means” Death to Trump”, Ayatollah Says      Cache   Translate Page      
Ayatollah says death to America means death to Trump
Iranian Supreme Ruler Ayatollah Ali Khamenei says “death to America” now officially means “Death to Trump” in Iran.

In a speech to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Iranian revolution, Khamenei told a group of Iranian air force officers:
“As long as America continues its wickedness, the Iranian nation will not abandon ‘Death to America’.” 
Trump pulled out of Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal with world powers last year and re-imposed sanctions on Tehran, dealing a blow to the country’s economy.
“‘Death to America’ means death to Trump, (National Security Adviser) John Bolton, and (Secretary of State Mike) Pompeo. It means death to American rulers,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
Zerohedge.com reports: And though the European signatories to the Iran deal have been doing everything they can to keep the deal afloat, Khamenei warned against trusting them, too, particularly since they have been stepping up criticism of Iran’s missile tests.
“I recommend that one should not trust the Europeans just as the Americans,” Khamenei said.
“We don’t say, don’t have contacts with them, but it’s an issue of trust.”
Maybe if European nations like Italy had stepped up their purchases of Iranian oil, or if the EU had succeeded in creating the alternative payments vehicle to help importers of Iranian crude bypass US sanctions, the Ayatollah would feel differently

          UstEK: Суперхит XX века. Status Quo «In the Army Now»      Cache   Translate Page      

Это цитата сообщения Dmitry_Shvarts Оригинальное сообщение Звезды в "Музыкальной гостиной" Легенды рока «Status Quo»

 

Песня «You’re In the Army Now» «не принадлежит» группе Status Quo: они её купили! После чего перезаписали, совсем чу-чуть изменив её, а потом стали знаменитыми. Теперь немного поподробнее...

В 1981-ом году братья Boland & Boland представили миру свой альбом The Domino Theory, в котором на первом месте шла композиция под названием «You’re In the Army Now». Все очень просто. Status Quo не придумывала всемирный хит, она просто взяла чужую композицию, сократила название и немного изменила текст, причём она внесла настолько несущественные изменения ... Впрочем, вы можете в этом сами убедиться.

 

Как придумывалась песня...

«You’re In the Army Now» задумывалась группой Boland & Boland антивоенная, и должна была символизировать протест против политики, проводимой странами-агрессорами. Альбом коллектива носит название «Теория домино», и да, это не спроста. Смысл, который заложен в альбоме, связан с политикой, проводимой США во Вьетнаме, Латинской Америке и т.д.

 
 

Bolland & Bolland. Ферди и Роб Болланды в радиостудии

Пластинка рассказывает историю человека, у которого нет выбора, солдата, которого послали воевать куда-то и зачем-то. Его вынуждают делать то, от чего он не в праве отказаться. В рамках альбома «The Domino Theory», группа повествует нам о «приключениях» бравого солдата, заложника ситуации. «You’re In the Army Now» - это вводная часть, начало его приключений...

 



Песня добилась хороших результатов. В исполнении авторов композиции она смогла попасть на 1-ую строчку хит-парада Норвегии и на 2-ую позицию чарта Швеции. Альбом понравился как слушателям, так и музыкальным критикам, последние отзывались о нём следующими словами: «отличный концептуальным альбом, заставляющий задуматься о жизненно важных проблемах». Тогда же он понравился и Фрэнсису Росси, об этом чуть ниже...   

 

 

Песня в руках Status Quo

 

Status Quo сделала из обычной, известной только в нескольких странах, композиции всемирный хит. Status Quo знаменита своим ритмичным рок-н-ролльным звучанием, которое вместе с буги-вуги и ритм-энд-блюзом даёт отличный результат: группа до сих пор занимает одиннадцатое место в Англии по количеству попавших в чарты хитов-синглов.

 



Мы не знаем, какие именно причины сподвигли группу взять композицию, которая существенно отличалась по стилю от того, что группа записывала до этого. Песню «You’re In the Army Now» нашла основателя группы Status Quo Фрэнсиса Росси, когда тот был в Германии. Он её услышал, ему понравилось и ... как результат: группа выпускает сингл в 1986-ом году, записывает на него клип в том же году, называет одноименно весь альбом и в одночасье становится знаменитой. Скорее всего, создатели хита, братья Boland & Boland, получают свою копейку с продажи дисков «You’re In the Army Now», и это, конечно же, радует! Но, опять же, это информация неточная...

«In the Army Now» - Status Quo

A vacation in a foreign land
Uncle Sam does the best he can
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now
 
Now you remember what the draftman said
Nothing to do all day but stay in bed
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now
 
You be the hero of the neiborhood
Nobody knows that you left for good
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now
 
Smiling faces as you wait to land
But once you get there no one gives a damn
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now
 
Hand grenades flying over your head
Missiles flying over your head
If you want to survive get out of bed
You're in the army now. Oh, oh, you're in the army now
 
Shots ring out in the dead of night
The sergeant calls: stand up and fight
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now
 
You've got your orders better shoot on sight
Your finger's on the trigger but it don't seem right
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now
 
Night is falling and you just can't see
Is this illusion or reality
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now
 
Каникулы за границей,
Дядя Сэм сделал все, что мог,
Ты теперь в армии,
Ты теперь в армии.
 
Ты помнишь, что тебе сказали в военкомате,
«Делать нечего, кроме как валяться в постели».
Ты теперь в армии,
Ты теперь в армии.
 
Ты станешь героем окрестности,
Никто не знает, что ты больше не вернешься,
Ты теперь в армии,
Ты теперь в армии.
 
Все улыбаются, пока ждут тебя,
Но как только приедешь, всем на тебя наплевать.
Ты теперь в армии,
Ты теперь в армии.
 
Ручные гранаты летают над головой,
Ракеты летают над головой,
Если хочешь выжить, вылезай из постели.
Ты теперь в армии,
Ты теперь в армии.
 
В глубине ночи слышны выстрелы,
Сержант командует: «Корпус, к бою готовсь!»
Ты теперь в армии, 
Ты теперь в армии.
 
Получил свое задание — стреляй без промедления,
Твой палец на курке, но все равно что-то не так.
Ты теперь в армии,
Ты теперь в армии.
 
Наступает ночь, и уже не понятно —
Это иллюзия или реальность,
Ты теперь в армии,
Ты теперь в армии.

Немного про «Status Quo»...

 
 
 
 

Status Quo - британская рок-группа, известная у себя на родине за свой 12-ти тактовый буги-рок, который они играли, начиная с 70-х годов. Между 1968-ым и 1990-ым у них было множество хитов, около 22 попали в «Top 10» Великобритании, включая самый популярный «Down Down» 1974 года. В Америке же самым популярным хитом была психоделическая песня «Pictures Of Matchstick Men», которая достигла 12-ой строчки в 1968-ом.

Первоначально коллектив назывался The Scorpions, он был основан вокалистом Фрэнсисом Росси и басистом Аланом Ланкастером ещё в школе в Лондоне вместе с одноклассниками: барабанщиком Аланом Кии клавишником Джесси Яворски.

 
 

Status Quo, 1970-е

Первое выступление «Scorpions» состоялось в 1963 году в «Samuel Jones Sports Club» в Далвиче, в Лондоне. В то время группа исполняла только кавера.

В 1963 году коллектив изменил «Scorpions» на «The Spectres». Произошла смена и в репертуаре, группа теперь начала исполнять свои собственные композиции. Это был Ланкастер - он первый начал писать свой собственный материал - его первой композицией была песня под названием «Ты моя девушка». Тогда же, в 66-ом, коллектив подписал с Piccadilly Records контракт на пять лет. У них вышло три сингла, которые были обречены провалиться в хит-парадах.

В 67-ом году, когда группа начала исследовать психоделию, она несколько раз меняла имя коллектива. Сначала на «Traffic Jam», но была вынуждена снова сменить прозвище, так как группа «Traffic» Стиви Винвуда называлась практически так же. Потом, в конце 67-го года коллектив стал именоваться «The Status Quo», тогда же к ним присоединился близкий друг Росси, гитарист Рик Парфитт, он вошёл в первоначальный состав группы.

 
 

Рик Парфитт

The Status Quo открывали благотворительную акцию «Live Aid» в Уэмбли в июле 1985-го. Первой песней, которую они сыграли, был их знаменитый кавер на песню Джона Фогерти «Rockin 'All Over The World».

 
 

Live Aid, 1985

 

Росси и Парфитт снялись в паре эпизодических ролей в сериале «Улица Коронации» в 2005 году. По сюжету, они были втянуты в драку с бездельником Лесом Баттерсби в баре "Rovers Return", а затем сыграли «live» на его концерте в качестве компенсации.

 

Status Quo организовала рекламную кампанию «Цены снижаются» для австралийского супермаркета "Coles", в которой они использовали текст песни «Down Down». Это был самый запрашиваемый видеоролик в "гугле". Австралийскую рекламу 2012 года супермаркета с участием группы Status Quo хотели увидеть многие, масло в огонь подливали сми, которые называли затею глупой.

 



Несколько хитов Status Quo, в том числе «Caroline», «Paper Plane» и «Down Down», были созданы вокалистом Фрэнсисом Росси вместе с тур-менеджером группы и гитаристом Бобом Янгом.

 

Гитарист Рик Парфитт, как правило, объединялся с клавишником Энди Бауном (они вместе написали хит-сингл "Whatever You Want") или басистом Джоном Эдвардсом. Фрэнсис Росси потом рассказывал:

«С Риком очень сложно записываться. Допустим, к нему пришла идея, и, если вы скажете: «то, что нужно», он ответит, что может лучше... - и он играет и играет, и, в конце концов, теряет это. Поэтому, когда он и Джон пишутся вместе, они окружены четырьмя микрофонами, которые пишут все изменения и следят за происходящим».
 
 
 
 

Status Quo выпустили свой первый полнометражный фильм «Bula Quo!» в 2013 году. В поддержку фильма, незадолго до его выхода, группа выпустила двойной диск с тем же названием. Росси признался, что группа не собиралась посвящать альбом фильму: «Мы пошли и налегке снялись в фильме»; а они сказали нам: «Здесь должен быть саундтрек». Тогда я подумал: «Саундтрек? Возможно, это надо будет сделать вместе с группой».

 

Status Quo вошла в Книгу рекордов Гиннесса в 1991 году: они исполнили четыре концерта в четырёх разных местах за один день: в Международном центре Шеффилда, в Шотландском выставочном и конференц-центре Глазго, в Национальном выставочном центре Бирмингема и на Арене Уэмбли, всё это было в рамках тура «Rock Till You Drop», посвященного их 25-летию. Группа отыграла четыре концерта за 11 часов и 11 минут.

В последнее время Рик Парфитт столкнулся с проблемами здоровья. Ему делали четырехкратное сердечное шунтирование в 1997 году, у него нашли рак горла в 2005, и у него было три сердечных приступа: в 2011, 2014 и июне 2016 годах. Последний заставил уйти Рика из коллектива.

Ланкастер и Коглан покинули группы в 80-х, но вернулись для туров в 2013 и 2014 годах. Последний концерт, когда квартет играл вместе датируется 2014-ым годом - «The Frantic Four's Final Fling: Live at the Dublin 02 Arena».

 



Парфит скончался в больнице в Марбелье, Испания, 24 декабря 2016 года от инфекции. Он скончался после того, как врачи выявили осложнения после травмы плеча, которую Парфит получил в результате падения.

Общий мировой рекорд продаж группы превышает 118 миллионов единиц.

Фрэнсис Росси сказал: «100 синглов кажутся невероятным событием даже для меня, я записал их все! Когда мы начинали, мы были бы счастливы хотя пару бы пару лет прожить в этом бизнесе, поэтому достичь этого рубежа просто невероятно».  

 



На счету Status Quo 106 выступлений на телепрограмме «Top of the Pops» на BBC. Это рекорд, такого результата нет ни у одной другой группы.

Суммарно за всё время Status Quo продержались 415 недель в английском чарте синглов - это одиннадцатое место за всю историю музыки.

У группы было 43 хитовых альбома (27 студийных альбомов, 11 сборников, 5 концертных альбомов) в чарте British Albums Chart - это больше, чем у любой другой группы, не считая The Rolling Stones. Они уступают только The Rolling Stones в хитовых альбомах Великобритании

 

По оценкам, за свою 48-летнюю историю группа отыграла более 6000 живых выступлений - общая аудитория на концертах - больше 25-ти миллионов человек. При этом группа проехала более четырех миллионов миль и провела 23 года вдали от дома.

В 1991 году Status Quo были удостоены премии «BRIT» за огромнейший вклад в музыкальную индустрию: наследие группы было официально признано,

«Aquostic (Stripped Bare)» был самым продаваемым независимым британским альбомом 2014 года и помог коллективу отметить их 500-ую неделю в чартах Великобритании (имеется в виду не сингловый, а альбомный чарт).




Не так давно, 9 лет назад... Не молодые уже ребята решили повторно сыграть на тех же аккордах и перезаписать клип. По заявлению Фрэнсиса Росси, они это сделали в «поддержку армии Великобритании и союзных сил в мире». Деньги, вырученные с продаж сингла были направлены в организации «Help for Heroes» (помощь раненным военнослужащим) и «British Forces Foundation» (реабилитация бывших военных).

 




Конечно, это выглядит очень благородно, эстетично и т.д. Но если вспомнить, с какой идеей Boland & Boland писали своё произведение, а именно, они выступали против войны в целом и за свободу человека. Посыл похож, только направления разные. Boland & Boland в своих песнях обличали политику и армию, тонко намекая, что армии и войны в целом не нужны простым людям, они нужны политикам для достижения своих целей. А Status Quo изменив пару строчек в первоначальном тексте, добавив нужную окраску и сделав звучание жестче, сделала из песни военно-патриотический «гимн»: из пацифистского концептуального альбома Boland & Boland получилась «военная доктрина» Status Quo.

 



У нас на Родине песня, конечно же, стала хитом. На неё было записано огромное количество каверов...

 



Среди них есть и смешные. Люди переписывают, переводят и поют свои вариации на тему «войны», получая от этого несказанное удовольствие. Слава богу, в нашей стране все в порядке с юмором и шутками...

Data Age

  • Encounter At L-5 – Most sprites are slightly warped but you can see it most on the Data Age logo at the top right. Sounds are mostly the same with an off note here or there, nothing serious. Conclusion… Completely playable
  • Bugs – Most ‘Bugs’ are intact but some are scrambled to high hell, the transition scene is unaltered. Sounds are intact with nothing seriously out of the ordinary. Conclusion… Completely playable.
  • Warplock – The only sprites that show signs of being off are the score sprites at the top of the screen, everything else is unchanged. Yep sounds are still terrible so there’s nothing wrong there. Conclusion… Completely playable.
  • Bermuda Triangle – Most of the graphics are unchanged except now the sprites will wrap around the screen before they emerge from the sides, you’ll see half of a giant fish on either side of the screen before it appears then the two halves vanish. There is a constant buzzing noise that plays while the game is turned on, nothing will change it. Conclusion… Completely playable.
  • Sssnake – The graphics are slightly screwed up so that some of the squares are together forming large channels of nothing in the grid. The track that you’re stuck on has moved to be partially inside the grid, I have now found out that the squares do in fact kill you on contact, which they really didn’t need to program. Sounds are fine but the game is completely unplayable.
  • Airlock – The color pallet is completely off since the floors and walls are now blue instead of pink/purple. The movement is rather jerky but the enemies still behave the same. Sounds are slightly off but nothing too noticeable. Conclusion… Completely playable.
  • Journey: Escape – DEAR GOD THE MUSIC!!! MAKE IT STOP PLEASE!!! The weird swirly background is now relegated to a one pixel vertical strip moving side to side and the opening scene is completely butchered as parts of sprites are either missing or in the wrong place.
  • Frankenstein’s Monster – The monster has been cut in half has skinny chicken legs and is yellow, the environment is largely unchanged.  The spiders are also yellow, but sounds are pretty much the same, apart from the jumping noise which sounds very off now. It’s still completely playable.
U.S. Games
  • Eggomania – The bird has become a twisted evil creation of Satan, the frog is blue, and the music will kill your ears, but it’s still playable.
  • M.A.D. – The cities are even more scrambled than they were before but otherwise everything is fine, the sounds are largely unchanged as well. It’s still completely playable
  • Gopher – The farmer has three faces, one looking left, one looking right, and one look straight into your soul. Everything else is largely unchanged and is still playable.
  • Entombed – some of the corridors are only half the standard width and despite being that perfect size you still can’t squeeze through them rendering the game unplayable in some circumstances, the music is also butchered to hell and back.
  • Name This Game – That octopus has seen better days since its pixels are spazzing left and right making it look very frightening. There is some minor sprite warping on everything and the sounds are mostly all right apart from the jingle but otherwise it’s playable.
  • Raft Rider – Same things as Bermuda Triangle except there are now thick green vertical bars on either side of the screen. There is some gnarly sprite warping on the moose but otherwise everything is fairly normal and completely playable.
Froggo
  • Sea Hawk – The color palette is out of wack since the sky is pink and the waves are green, the sprites are surprisingly intact as well. Also you explode immediately whenever you respawn rendering the game unplayable.
  • Sea Hunt – The colors are also out of wack but the sprites are unaffected apart from the Sancho logo at the bottom of the screen. The tune that plays is absolute murder on the ears as it seems almost all the keys have been jumped up several octaves and are being played in the wrong order, the game is still playable though.
  • Cruise Missile – The enemies at the top of the screen are stuck as the explosion sprite rendering them invincible and making the game unplayable, otherwise the game is almost completely fine.
  • Spiderdroid – some girders are completely invisible or show up in the wrong place but it’s otherwise unchanged in terms of graphics, sound, and gameplay.
Apollo
  • Wabbit – All the graphics are unchanged apart from the field which appears to be participating in a rave since it’s flashing through every shade of brown the 2600 can muster at light speed. Sounds seem unaffected as does the gameplay so it’s still completely playable.
  • Shark Attack – The diamonds have a tendency to flicker and duplicate giving you twice the normal amount as usual, unfortunately you are unable to access 75% of the maze as you appear to be too fat, rendering the game unplayable unless you want to wait for the shark to eat 45 diamonds.
  • Infiltrate – Almost completely unaffected, the only thing wrong is that the elevators are shifted to the side a little bit but you can still use them. This game is completely fine.
  • Lost Luggage – Some minor sprite warping and the color palette is slightly off but it’s otherwise pristine.
  • Spacechase- Same as Lost Luggage, it’s completely fine.
  • Final Approach – Same as Spacechase…
  • Space Cavern – Same as Final Approach…
  • Racquetball – since it uses sprites for the lines of the room they are either missing or located in the wrong part of the room, the balls shadows are also out of sorts not allowing you to see its proper location rendering the game pretty much unplayable.
  • Skeet Shoot – Nothing wrong, but still unplayable.
Taiwan Cooper
  • Tank mission/Thunderground – Only some very minor sprite warping coupled with the color palette being completely screwed up.
  • Mr. Postman – The graphics are mostly unchanged but the music is absolutely mangled. The final screen, Silent City, makes the game unbeatable since the passageways have constricted not allowing the Postman to squeeze through and complete the game, rendering the game unplayable.
  • UFO/Condor Attack – The sprites for the enemies are screwed up but that’s pretty much it, everything acts and sounds normal.
  • Mission 3000 A.D. – Everything looks and acts normally but the sounds are now even more abrasive than before.
  • Cross Force – There is a constant buzzing noise that is frightening to listen to. The shooting only works on half the screen, and the act of shooting makes the whole screen flash and judder, the game is only semi playable though it’s probably a good handicap for skilled players.
  • Karate – the fighters now have pinheads and are missing one of their knees, but the game still acts the same
  • Open Sesame/I Want My Mommy – The music is butchered as usual but the graphics and gameplay remain fairly unchanged only everything that was white is now yellow.
  • Spider/Spacemaster X-7 – half of the shield is missing and has reappeared on the far right of the screen leaving the left half of the station completely unguarded making the game a breeze to play even in the harder difficulty levels, I easily quintupled my previous high score.
  • Squirrel – completely fine, apart from the standard sprite warping there is nothing wrong with it.
Tigervision
  • Polaris – the sonar sound effect is even worse to listen to than before, otherwise the game plays the same and apart from the standard sprite warping looks fine as well.
  • Jawbreaker – the game behaves normally and apart from some thick blue bars outside the play area and some of the dots not being where they should the game looks fine as well.
  • Miner 2049er – First off… Ow my ears that music is mangled to shit, otherwise everything is fairly normal apart from a crazy color palette.
 
Parker Bros.
  • Gyruss - As is common with all forms of sound coming from Phillip it is a twisted and evil sound that this game spits out of the speakers. The gameplay is perfectly fine and even the graphics are only affected to a minor degree, it's fine as long as you press the mute button.
  • G.I. Joe - Good lord that snake is twisted, it's face has separated from the rest of it's body and is now purely nightmare fuel. The small running soldiers now resemble cave drawings (seriously) and the palette is overall ruined, but the game still plays alright though the cobra seems a bit harder to hit than before.
  • Amidar - Exact same as Spiderdroid.
  • Sky Skipper - The opening tune hits notes so high I think I can hear the neighborhood dog population going crazy. The game is rendered unplayable due to the fact that as soon as you hit reset you phase into the floor and lose all of your lives in approximately four seconds, the game is just broken plain and simple.
  • Tutankham - The music is completely broken as usual but thankfully it isn't too much of an ear-sore. Sometimes there are walls narrowing the pathways but you can walk right through them, the game behaves normally and apart from the sounds it's completely fine. Even the color palette is normal.
  • Frogger - Apart from the hellish music, once more the game looks and acts like it should apart from a few flickering bits on the borders which is standard across the board, even the sprites look fine.
  • Reactor - I can never tell if this game is behaving correctly or not, but it seems to be fine, only a misplaced block or two.
  • Spiderman - The webs are invisible, and the graphics are warped, Spiderman looks like he was run over by a truck and I can't even get up high enough to see what the Goblin looks like, yeah the game's pretty much unplayable. Though, invisible web mode would be a good variation for experienced players.
  • Star Wars:Death Star Battle - The sounds and graphics are about right, though the grid pattern on the shield is messed up and the death star is missing a large chunk of it's right half. The game is still completely playable.
  • Star Wars: TESB - This is most definitely the worst rendition of the Star Wars theme I've ever heard, the palette is fine and so is the gameplay. There is very little wrong with the graphics, only a few juddering sprites and parts of the background detaching and jumping around, nothing gamebreaking.
  • Star Wars: Jedi Arena - I take it back... THIS is the worst rendition of the Star Wars theme I've ever heard. You're swinging around a lightsaber thicker than a human torso but that's about it for broken graphics, the game plays fine. There's nothing much wrong with this one.
  • Q*bert - He only has one leg! The music is also completely trashed but the game plays fine.
  • Super Cobra - The game plays fine but there is a wall of tiles situated in the center of the screen at all times and if they make contact with any of the terrain the terrain vanishes and reappears, also the sounds are screwed up, but you knew that already.
  • Popeye - Screwy sounds, flickering and slightly muddled visuals but you can still make everything out and play the game just fine, you're just going to get a headache while doing it.
  • Strawberry Shortcake – The music is ungodly, every theme has been made squeaky and ear grating by Phillip, it is so bad I might just make a video of all of them.
Spectravision
  • Gangster Alley - The game looks and plays okay apart from a screwy color palette (It's not the color wheel I've checked multiple times). The sounds are okay because there just aren't any in the first place, yeah this one's fine.
  • Planet Patrol - honestly... It's just fine, the only thing that stands out is the random disco mesa in the background but otherwise everything is fine.
  • Chase the Chuckwagon - At first lance it looks fine, the graphics aren't screwed up and some of the text is even legible but when you hit the reset switch nothing will happen... If you press the game select switch the game will go into full seizure mode. You will be stuck in place and killed as the screen flashes red and a horrible buzzing assaults your ears. The game is unplayable.
  • Bumper Bash - the playfield is all sorts of screwed up, most of the walls are in the incorrect spots, in fact you can even get the ball stuck in the blue border. The game is impossible to play since the ball will get stuck every time, or the physics will break and the ball will get stuck in an endless loop of bouncing.
Imagic
  • Fathom – Amazingly enough the only thing wrong with it is a bit of mild sprite warping, even the sounds are fine!
  • Demon Attack – a classic case of screwy sounds, but the graphics are fine with just a few screwed up sprites.
  • Dragonfire – sounds are fine, so are the graphics. The gamebreaking bug though is that you are not allowed to go right when collecting treasures, if you do you will be taken back to the doorway instantly, but you don’t lose a life for doing so, but if anything is to the right of the door or directly above then the game is over.
  • Quick Step – completely fine… seriously!
  • Moonsweeper – Apart from some minor sprite warping and some slight tearing on the larger sprites there is nothing wrong sound-wise and play-wise.
  • No Escape! – The sounds are particularly nasty here but otherwise everything is correct apart from everything that was formerly white being yellow.
  • Solar Storm – Everything from the sounds to the sprites to the palette are perfect.
  • Cosmic Ark – the graphics, sounds, and gameplay are all fine, with one exception. When first starting the game the background is just like it was with Journey: Escape where it is a single vertical line moving side to side.
  • Atlantis – The screen has been cut into two halves, and the land is freaking out around the cities, it’s all juddery. Sounds and gameplay are okay.
  • Trick Shot – The brown on the table has been turned to black, but otherwise everything is fine in all departments.
  • Fire Fighter – The building flickers between grey and yellow occasionally and the ladder is spazzing out but the more complex graphics are untouched. Sounds are good and the gameplay is unaffected.
  • Star Voyager – the palette’s been hit, the blue border is now vomit green, but otherwise pretty much everything is fine with an off-key note here or there.
  • Riddle of the Sphinx – All the palm trees are missing their trunks, and the desert has turned into a yellow I can only describe as Kraft Single. The gameplay is unchanged so you can at least enjoy the eye rotting yellow.
  • Shootin’ Gallery – Apart from a spot of bother where I couldn’t move the gun right, it later fixed itself, the game works as it should, even most of the sprites are unsullied by Phillip’s devilish influence.
Telesys
  • Cosmic Creeps – There is some major sprite tearing on the spaceship and sun but everything else is fine. The sounds are mostly alright except when it tries to do anything complicated. Gameplay is unaltered and completely playable.
  • Fast Food – Some of the sprites are a little bit messed up but he “You’re getting fatter” and “Closed” intermissions are screwed up beyond comprehension. The gameplay is fine, nothing wrong there and even the sounds are untouched
  • Coconuts – the tree trunks are completely missing, and the monkey is now the spawn of Satan’s asscrack. Gameplay and sounds are fine, nothing wrong there.
Brazilian Bootlegs
  • Bobby is Going Home – The music is now thoroughly unsettling as it is now in the minor key and just plain disturbing, the jumping sound has been destroyed. The gameplay and visuals are untouched for the most part.
  • Crackpots – The guy is now a Cyclops with a toupee that has a mind of its own, apart from that the palette is a bit screwy and parts of the game will flash on the black left border. Gameplay is fine, as are most of the sounds with perhaps an off-key note once in a while
  • Fast Eddie - The ladders are very screwy but the game behaves normally otherwise.
Amiga
  • Mogul Maniac – You are skiing in the land of Kraft Singles since the whole planet has turned disturbingly yellow. Gameplay has remained unaffected, and apart from the awful rendition of the Olypmic Anthem being made even more awful, the sounds are unchanged.
Panda
  • Tank Brigade/Tanks But No Tanks – The graphics and sounds are mostly fine, but the game is rendered unplayable if you shoot either the far left or far right border walls since your shot will just stick into them not allowing you to shoot again until you die or an enemy drives into it. The enemy AI has become dumber than a box of rocks driving into the walls until they either warp to the other side or vanish and respawn. Enemy shots will also stick to the walls which might be why they’re freaking out… Hard Mode?
Zimag
  • Dishaster – The music is even worse than before, but the other sounds are okay. Gameplay is unchanged, but the graphics are a bit screwy, the poles will fracture in some places or be two pixels thick, and some of the plates will spaz side to side on occasion. The game still sucks though.
Universal-Gamex
  • X-Man – On the intro screen it seems the woman has swallowed a tire since she’s gotten quite round, the man is now grey and has little skinny chicken legs that grow in size whenever he’s walking, and the enemies will make the screen flicker a little bit as well. The game has been rendered unplayable for the same reasons as Entombed, the pathways have constricted and you are unable to move anywhere. The maze selector is also broken only picking two of the three mazes and one far more than the other, the one it usually chooses also constantly plays a high pitched sound just to give you a headache, the sounds are just horrible and off-key. Even if you wanted to play it you couldn’t.
Mythicon
  • Star Fox – The sounds are just as broken as is it was on a functioning console except all the annoying ones have been reduced in pitch to a near tolerable level. Gameplay and graphics remain unaltered. Hmmm it seems playing Star Fox on a broken console has wound up making it slightly better.
  • Fire Fly – HOLY SHIT THAT MUSIC!!! My ears hurt! It’s all been raised a couple octaves apart from a few notes that were on the lower end staying correct. The graphics couldn’t be more messed up in the first place so it seems Phillip has actually improved some of them by destroying them further.
  • Sorcerer – the white mountain top is made of year old Cheez Whizz but everything else seems fine with the graphics, scratch that the mountains have turned yellow and the mountain top is now grey, now it’s back to normal, what the hell. I’m afraid to hit reset, but here goes…  OH GOD MY EARS!!!
Atari Red Box/Label
  • Realsports Boxing – The ring graphics are very glitch, often flashing and warping, the fighters are fine as is everything else. Sounds are alright except for the countdown sound that sounds mangled and strangled. Still completely playable.
  • Crossbow - On the map screen every location sprite has been split in half and jumping around wildly, and unfortunately the aiming reticule/cursor is invisible making the game very difficult to play without a turbo function. The stage screens are fairly mangled as well with much of the lava on the volcano stage missing entirely, and the cacti in the desert screen flickering wildly.
  • Donkey Kong Junior – The game is still fully functional apart from one rope that will repel you if you approach it, the graphics are as fine as they were and the sounds have become extremely screechy and nasty.
  • Jr. Pac-Man – some parts of the maze fail to appear visually but still have collision detection, and the maze itself will flicker violently between several different shades of poo brown and vomit green. The game plays fine but the sounds make it so you’ll never ever want to do that in the first place since the opening tune is murder.
  • Dark Chambers – The title screen actually names the game as Dark Chairbel’s so that’s a good sign. The game still plays normally and the sounds seem unchanged, some of the enemy sprites are a bit screwed up but due to how simple most of them are the warping is fairly unnoticeable.
  • Midnight Magic – The ball is now 1X3 pixels but most everything else is still functional unlike in Bumper Bash. The sounds are mangled of course but it’s less noticeable here than in other titles.
  • Solaris – This is some of the nastiest sprite warping I’ve seen so far… Not a single item is left untouched, the planets are no longer circular and have corners and enemies are missing chunks of their bodies. Sounds just sound off as if everything has been changed to the minor key. The game is very difficult to play since enemy behavior has been thoroughly defiled and now some enemies will simply self destruct or is impossible to catch up to so you can shoot them; you also have a nasty habit of exploding randomly.
  • Venture – The game looks mostly intact but in some cases walls will be missing or elongate slightly which makes moving around a bit difficult, on the map screen one of the rooms was missing a wall so I was able to enter the room from the other side of the door. In the room with the moving walls however the walls on the top and bottom around the treasure had lengthened making it impossible to actually get the thing rendering the game unplayable.
  • Super Football – The opening screen shows a football player who has been sawn cleanly in half. The game plays fairly normally except all the players judder around in a rather distracting fashion, there is also a yellow line on the screen that will change color when a player is on the same horizontal plane as it. Sounds are fairly untouched apart from the crowd noise that now sounds like a dying lawn mower.
  • Desert Falcon – The only part of the game that isn’t horribly wrong is the Sphinx, everything else has something wrong with it. The opening tune is mostly clangs and screeches, as is the background accompaniment, with other sounds either raised or lowered an octave. The palette is FUBAR and some graphical elements will fail to show up, the obelisks mainly but a few pyramids were no-shows as well simply leaving their shadows, to confuse things further the shadows are the correct sandy color making it look like much of the game had been gone over with a steamroller. Some elements will flicker and move independently and the whole game shifts slightly to the right whenever you land. Despite all of that the game is still playable
  • Gravitar – Honestly… Apart from the sprite warping the game plays and sounds just fine.
  • Xenophobe – the game plays fine, and apart from a slightly screwy palette and the basic sprite warping it looks fine as well. The sounds appear to be even worse before, if you thought the music was bad before now try it with completely unrelated sounds taking place of the already discordant notes… It makes me shudder.
  • Ikari Warriors – I’m not kidding here… It’s almost perfect, there’s barely any sprite warping, the sounds are fine and the gameplay is fine.
  • Motorodeo - Apart from some atrocious music the game is also untouched by Philip’s influences. It looks fine and it plays fine.
CBS
  • Blueprint – The only thing that has been altered is the player character who is now a top hat and small line. Everything else is as it should be.
  • GORF – Apart from a few ships being slightly scrambled the game is almost entirely unaltered in graphics, sounds, and gameplay.
  • Wizard of Wor – The game starts by screaming in agony then the player automatically phases through the walls of the maze and gets stuck, not allowing any continued play. Much like in Entombed some of the walls constrict blocking pathways which would have made the game far more difficult since you couldn’t access over half of it, but the game renders itself unplayable right off the bat.
  • Omega Race – I can’t really comment since I don’t have the Booster Grip adaptor.
  • Solar Fox – the game is almost playable, and would be a very fun ‘Hard Mode’ of the game since the enemies shots move incredibly erratically across the screen, but you automatically lose a life when you start the game and with every new level meaning you could get to level three then die immediately. The game is totally unplayable unless you really like playing levels one and two forever.
  • Mountain King – The game still acts normally, a few things are screwed up like there only being half of the diamonds present, the rest have vanished, and the player is now wearing a skirt. The ‘Secret World’ is still there and you can still access it as you normally would.
Konami
  • Strategy X – The graphics now look even worse since everything is jumping and juddering around like it’s recently been caffeinated, even more so than usual. The color palette is all sorts of screwed up and the tank looks like some sort of insect. Sounds like to switch from one octave too high to one octave too low seemingly at random, making for a very obnoxious playthrough.
  • Pooyan – The game plays as it normally does, the sounds are all several octaves too high and the graphics are vanishing and rematerializing randomly whenever they feel like it. The game is still almost unplayable though.
M-Network
  • Kool-Aid Man – The graphics are almost untouched, all that’s wrong is the palette and some parts of the edges of the screen flickering. Sounds have been raised by an octave or two except when they haven’t; all the notes in the opening tune apart from the final two have been raised. Gameplay has been unaffected and is still totally playable.
  • Air Raiders – It plays normally, all the issues are with the graphics and sounds. The sky is now a sickly shade of green and half of the brown border of your cockpit had turned red. The sounds have been raised in pitch as we’ve seen before except with these noises it is particularly obnoxious.
  • Super Challenge Baseball – The diamond is flickering about like a madman and the players have suddenly grown extremely wide. The game has only one quirk that players may find annoying, after any pitch, the catcher will automatically run up the screen, nothing you can do will stop him, even if he has the ball he is uncontrollable basically making the game unplayable.
  • Adventures of Tron – The game skips the title screen and immediately starts the game, you are actually able to control how fast you fall down with the joystick, otherwise the game plays normally.
  • Armor Ambush – The game looks and sounds like an absolute disaster, everything is scrambled in awful ways. Player two will move forward no matter what even if there is a controller plugged in, the game is still playable though player two us just unable to stop.
  • Super Challenge Football – Same issues as with SC Baseball, the players have grown extremely wide and player two won’t stop running. I’m not sure how playable this is since I can’t play effectively by myself.
  • Dark Cavern – The game has been rendered completely unplayable due to the fact that you cannot move down and will only move up trapping you. The sounds are fine and the graphics are fine apart from the enemies gaining 80 pounds and filling up the entire passageway.
  • Space Attack – You are unable to actually battle the aliens not matter how closely you follow the instructions, the game cannot be played.
  • Astroblast – The sounds are screwed up, and the shots look funny, but the game still plays just fine.
  • Lock ‘n’ Chase – The game is almost  unplayable since you always want to move upwards, (are you sensing a theme with these games?) and due to how the game treats movement you are unable to turn around until you stop which means you just keep running into the police over and over again.
  • Bump ‘n’ Jump – This might be the only game that benefits for automatic forward movement, you never have to worry about accelerating ever again, and braking even works as well. The sounds are tortured and crying for mercy, and the palette is completly wrong, (why is the road yellow and flashing?), but the game is entirely playable.
Coleco
  • Mouse Trap – the game is imploding on itself, the game starts with about 10 seconds of pink flashing and cat screams, and when that’s over you’ll find that the game is unplayable since the pellets have been shited over to the right meaning some of them are inside of the walls, while some corridors have constricted so that you can’t pass through. The game is completely broken.
  • Donkey Kong - Mario now has yellow skin and some of the ladders are now invisible, the game is still playable despite this. The sounds are mostly fine apart from when you get hit and the console squeals in agony.
  • Smurf: Recue – HOLY SHIT MY EARS!!! The graphics are fine but the music is the work of Satan, and might just be the ugliest thing I’ve ever heard, and I like Skrillex.
  • Carnival – Apart from some seriously wicked sprite warping, and sounds that would make a person go deaf after prolonged exposure, the gameplay is fine.
  • Front Line – I actually managed to beat it for the first time on Philip, the graphics are pretty darn screwy, much of the landscape has shipped to the side slightly or is flickering and jittering. Enemy soldiers are now wearing black uniforms but the actual sprites are fine. Near the end of the game the ground began to flash yellow and grey which isn’t easy on the eyes. The sounds are fine with only a few off keys every so often.
Starpath
  • Communist Mutants From Space – First off the loading noise has a tendency to jump octaves until it gets so high pitched you can’t hear it. The graphics are fairly muddled, the brood mother has split in half and the uniform layout of her spawn has been disrupted. The evil spawn have the standard sprite warping that we’ve come to expect.
  • Suicide Mission – Despite its graphical complexity it remains wholly intact and pretty much unsullied by Phillip.
  • Killer Satellites – The sounds are torched and off-key, even the simple ones, the score is having an epileptic fit at the top of the screen and the ground is flashing between dark red and not-so-dark red. The game is still playable though, even if you really don’t want to after looking at it.
Sega
  • Congo Bongo – This game is not happy… The sounds are squeaky and off-key and everything that was once yellow is now gray. The pathways on top of the cliffs have shifted very far to the right so now some of them are in the waterfall and river. The Frogger screen is fairly untouched but has rendered the game unbeatable since you cannot pass the rampaging rhinos (?) without dying, the entire horizontal plane is death, and no, you can’t jump over it.
  • Buck Rogers – Apart from the horrifying sounds the game plays and looks fairly normal, nothing to say here.
  • Tac-Scan – Honestly there is almost nothing wrong, not even sprite warping.
Vidtec
  • Sneak ‘n Peek – I’m uncomfortable, the sounds are butchered to hell and the people are both missing a leg and are hopping around the house, otherwise the gameplay is unaffected.
  • Towering Inferno – The graphics are fine but the controls have been reversed, left is right and right is left, you’re always moving forward unless you hold back then you stop, also you can only move using the right controller port not the left as is standard. You cannot move backwards which makes the game unplayable.
  • Commando Raid – The game looks fine to start with bit when you start playing you’ll notice that the little parachuting guys have been reduced to three horizontal lines, which is mildly distressing. The sounds are mostly alright except when the console shrieks in agony. Also the hit detection of the missiles is gone so you can’t shoot them and whenever they appear it’s game over every time, the game is unplayable unless you can hit the planes before they drop the bombs, Hard Mode?
  • Word Zapper – Apart from the letters flickering between yellow and white the game is untouched.
  • Space Jockey – There is very little that Phillip could do to destroy such a basic game so it appears he hasn’t even tried, the game is fine.
20th Century Fox
  • M*A*S*H* - This game is frightening. The opening screen is mostly fine, the trees don’t look like trees but apart from that it’s okay, but screen two, surgery… That person is beyond the healing powers of even the gods, I would almost call it gory. The game may not be unplayable, but I really don’t want to play it after seeing that.
HOLY SHIT!!!.jpg
  • Mega  Force – It’s fine, there is only some minor sprite warping and the sounds are a bit off but the game plays alright, if you really want to play Mega Force that is.
  • Flash Gordon – The maze appears to be confused since some passageways will not appear on the map but still allow you to fly through them so it looks like you’re flying through solid rock. There is some minor sprite warping as usual but it’s not severe. The game plays okay and the sounds are for the most part unaltered.
  • Alien – Oh dear! The pellets have materialized outside the maze and are flickering back and forth in a mesmerizing fashion. The game is still completely playable except the pellet graphics are in the wrong place not their hitbox meaning you can still collect them all except you just don’t know where most of them are.
  • Fantastic Voyage – Holy Hell what a mess. The walls of the blood vessel are freaking out, shifting and juddering side to side, so much so that sometimes it will wrap to the other side of the screen. Most of the time the enemies are outside the walls which means you cannot hit them, or they will be in the walls but the walls will shift allowing the enemies to escape to the rest of the screen. The game is virtually unplayable since half of the enemies are untouchable.
  • Turmoil – Believe it or not this game is absolutely fine with only an off note here and there, after Fantastic Voyage I was a bit scared, but who can blame me.
  • Worm War 1 - The sounds are a bit screwy and the palette is all wrong but otherwise everything is fine. 
Activision
  • Pitfall II – Since the game has a separate chip used for the music the actual sounds are fine, thankfully. The graphics are mostly unchanged with only a few flickering background elements here and there and the yellow (ish) ground turning grey in some areas. Also the ladders are just straight up invisible, which makes the game a little more interesting.
  • Ghostbusters – As you can guess the music is torture of an otherworldly kind, and this is with a different TIA chip that does sounds better (I swapped them after I made the video). The music is still off-key in grotesque ways, but it’s not as bad as before. The streets still flash horribly between yellow and grey, which is very hard on the eyes, otherwise much of the game’s graphics are fairly untouched apart from Ecto-1 which looks like Picasso got to it.
  • Enduro – The game has been rendered unplayable since you start  the game riding on the line meaning you are colliding with it forever and will never move anywhere, also your ears are assailed by the streams of the damned as you constantly crash into the wall
  • Commando – This has some of the most ear-splitting music I’ve heard to this point, the notes aren’t off-key per say, they are just so high pitched that I can’t even hear some of them. The graphics are almost fine, the ground will flicker from yellow to grey on occasion and the palm trees appear to have become sentient, but otherwise the main graphics are fine.
  • Private Eye – Holy crap what a mess I have been presented with… The sounds, atrocious, the graphics, atrocious, the game, confusing. Everything that was once grey is now yellow, and the opening tune is so awful I have intentionally repressed it, background elements are flickering and jittery which makes the game feel like it’s about to fall apart.
  • Decathlon – It’s okay, the graphics are mildly scrambled but the game still plays as it should.
  • River Raid – At first it seemed like this might actually be a pretty decent Hard Mode, but the game quickly turned sour. If you are on the same line as an enemy it is the same as you touching them, same thing for the fuel, you don’t actually have to touch them for them to hit you, which means you have to hit EVERY enemy otherwise you’ll die since you cannot pass them. This would be alright apart from the fact that the game has branching pathways and it is literally impossible to hit every enemy on the screen when that happens. The game is unplayable end of story.
  • Keystone Kapers – The game has the standard sprite warping and background flickering we’ve come to expect, but the sounds are fine. The game plays just like it should, let it pass.
  • Megamania – the game starts fine but as soon as you finish level one you will just die over and over again for no reason rendering the game unplayable past level one.
  • Spider Fider – Apart from some of the sounds being rather mangled the game plays as well as it should.
  • Pressure Cooker – Graphically the game is fine but the sounds are otherworldly and the gameplay is STILL confusing.
  • Pitfall! – The game has curled up into a ball and gone into a catatonic state. Pitfall Harry has no frames of animation, he cannot jump and when he falls down a ladder he cannot climb back up since the ladder has shifted to the right and Harry can’t climb through solid rock. There is also a high pitched screaming noise that plays constantly making the game absolute agony to experience.
  • Frostbite – The game looks, plays, and sounds, just like it should.
  • Fishing Derby – The fishing lines remain straight lines if you move them a certain direction but move realistically if you move them another, the graphics are fine for the most part apart from the dock which is flashing and flickering, but the game is still playable.
  • Oink! – Graphically it has the same issues as many before it; everything that was yellow is now grey and vise versa and everything that was white is now yellow. The sprites have a small amount of warpage but not enough to raise an eyebrow, the game still plays normally and the sounds are fine, the game is still playable.
  • Space Shuttle – Apart from the sprite warping we’ve seen in a hundred other games, it’s fine and plays as it should.
  • Tennis – The court is in distress… Instead of being angles like they should, the left side lines have decided that they want to be straight, making the court much smaller than it was before. The game plays normally however and the changes seem to only be cosmetic.
  • Checkers – Scarily normal.
  • Seaquest – The sounds are squeaky and weird but the graphics and gameplay are overall unaffected with the exception of one thing. You can see the swimmers wrapping around the side of the screen much like with Bermuda Triangle.
  • Ice Hockey – Oh dear the ice rink has turned yellow but otherwise the game is okay.
  • Skiing – It’s completely normal apart from the fact that the mountain is now made out of cheddar cheese.
  • Sky Jinks - Horrible things have happened to these graphics. Much like with Desert Falcon the sprites for the shadows have been replaced with the sprites for the objects themselves creating a loopy land of pancaked pylons and hot air balloons that are fragmented but still flying, it truly is disturbing.
  • Starmaster – The graphics are almost okay with only a small amount of warping present but the real kicker is the fact that the shooting is all screwed up. One of your shots will actually go where it’s supposed to, while the other will fire straight up the right edge of the screen, and from what I’ve experienced you can’t actually hit enemies either way so the game is pretty much impossible.
  • Grand Prix – Screwy sounds and yellowed visuals don’t hamper the gameplay which remains the same.
  • Dragster – Unblemished.
  • Kaboom – Um… Well the game looks fine, the game’s sounds are overpowered by a high pitched beeping noise and the score constantly goes up, forever and ever. Easiest rollage of my life.
  • Dolphin – The game has had the difficulty ramped up exponentially, since the game relies heavily on sounds it doesn’t help that most of them are so off-key it hurts or missing entirely due to them being so high pitched, the game is still playable but it’s just incredibly difficult.
  • Barnstorming – Graphically the game is mostly untouched, the same s true for the sounds as well but there is something odd. Whenever you hold down the button you will accelerate but only for a second because as the timer changes to another second you lose all the speed you accrued and begin to accelerate again for one second making the game a hurky jerky mess.
  •  Boxing – It behaves normally, and apart from the basic sprite warping and color issues that are standard the game looks alright as well, even the sounds are untouched, let it pass.
  • Freeway – Sounds, Graphics, and Gameplay are all untouched.
  • Laser Blast – It’s fine, seriously.
  • Chopper Command – Same issue as in River Raid which makes the game unplayable since you are unable to kill enemies without dying first. The game is completely unplayable.
  • Stampede – Those cows or now twisted abominations that jerk around like vessels of Satan. The game is completely playable; the only things wrong with it are the cow and horse graphics and the sounds which are far more shrill than usual.
  • Robot Tank – This game is very, very angry, the sounds the game makes when you move side to side are startling to say the least and the explosions, apart from being seizure inducing, are so violent sounding that the ESRB might have to stick a T rating on it. Graphics are mostly fine apart from the standard sprite warping, and gameplay is unchanged as far as I know.
 Sears
  • Pac-Man – As far as graphics go this is probably the least messed up Pac-Man title of the lot. The entire maze is off kilter and the dots intersect with the walls but are still accessible, both the ghost and Pac-Man sprites are unaltered, and the sounds aren’t too butchered. Unfortunately the game takes a turn towards unplayable since some of the dots are invisible or unaccessible I can’t tell which.
  • Asteroids – Off the bat the game looks fine, but it shows its true colors as you begin playing. The ‘dun-dun’ sound effect has been pitch shifted up several octaves making it an annoying beeping noise. The asteroids look fine until shot then the sprites for the smaller asteroids begin mirroring themselves giving them an erratic and disturbing look. The game is still perfectly playable though, if you don’t mind being disturbed.
  • Baseball – Um…. This might be the first ‘perfect’ game here… There is quite literally nothing wrong with the game.
  • Race – You cannot move left, right is fine, but not left, rendering the game unplayable
Absolute
  • Skateboardin’ – The game looks alright, just some very minor sprite warping, also the kid doesn’t have a body. The music isn’t altogether horrible, it just gets a bit high in some places, and the gameplay is unaltered.
  • Pete Rose Baseball – It’s all just the standard sprite warping coupled with everything that was once white or grey becoming yellow, the sounds are off-key as usual but the gameplay remains unaltered.
  • Tomcat – The game is playable but the warped graphics make figuring out what all the scrambles letter and numbers mean a huge hassle, on a technical level it’s playable but in action it’s just impossible.
Mystique
  • Beat ‘em & Eat ‘em – Graphically there is very little wrong with it, apart from the fellow’s member which appears to have shrunk in girth to that of a pencil. There are a few off notes but nothing ear bleeding, it’s all right.
  • Custer’s Revenge – Custer’s legs are missing, the clouds are made of cheese , and the sounds are murder. ‘nuff said.
Epyx
  • Winter Games – The games are all functionally the same as if the game were functioning normally. Everything white is now yellow, and the sprite warping is immense in areas like the ski jump and bobsled. Also the music couldn’t be worse if you smashed your head into a piano (anywhere on the piano not just the keys) and called it a day.
  • Summer Games – Music is murder but the game plays fine, pretty much just like with Winter Games.
  • California Games – I am uncomfortable… The foot bag kid’s legs detach from his body when he turns around. Otherwise it is much like with the previous two, the games are playable but the graphics are a bit funky and the sounds have been brutalized.
 Commavid
  • Room of Doom – Functionally the game is fine, graphically the game is also fine, auditorially it is also fine, the game is just fine.
  • Cosmic Swarm – The blocks don’t show up in the proper locations which leads to the game being a bit of a crap shoot on whether you’re going to run into a block or not. Sounds and most of the gameplay still work as normal.
Atari Silver Label
  • E.T. – Apart from some very minor graphical issues and the music being turned to a mess of beeps the game plays perfectly normally.
  • Moon Patrol – The game is fine, nothing to report.
  • Crystal Cast

          Session: Phantom Leader Deluxe:: Operation Linebacker USN-1972 Day 2      Cache   Translate Page      

by gracillus

12 May 1972

Continuing our mission of interdicting the transportation of men and materials supporting the PAVN offensive, command has tasked us with the destruction of a P/O/L storage facility. Without this precious fuel, the PAVN will be unable to resupply it’s forward units.

The pilots and aircraft:

Poco(average) F4 Phantom
x2 AIM-9 Sidewinder, x1 AIM-7 Sparrow, x2 2.75” Rocket Pod

G.O.(average) F4 Phantom
x2 AIM-9 Sidewinder, x1 Mk.84 Iron Bomb

Gringo(skilled) A-6 Intruder
x2 Mk.83 Iron Bomb, x1 Mk.84 Iron Bomb

Again, our target was in Route Pack 4. So -1 WP for the mission.



We drew Down Time as our Target Bound Event card. This gave us +2 SO points. The scuttlebutt around the ready room is that we’ll soon have some of the new GBU-10/12 bombs.

Turn 1
“Blue Bandit! Bullseye Zero-Four-Zero at 70!” The call goes out. A MiG-21 has been spotted loitering over the target area. Poco and G.O. move to engage the dangerous aircraft while they have the element of surprise. The enemy MiG finally notices the F4’s closing in, but not before Poco engages with his lone Sparrow. The missile homes in, exploding beneath the MiG and sending it spinning, trailing smoke and debris, to the ground below. Remaining at high altitude, all three aircraft move into the east approach.

Turn 2
Not much to do on turn 2. Our Over Target Event card was A-1 Skyraiders. Pilots flying this mission gain 1 extra experience. Unfortunately they also suffer 1 more stress. With nothing else to do, all three aircraft drop to low altitude and move into position to make their attack runs on the fuel storage facility.

Turn 3
As Gringo approaches the facility, an S-60 opens fire on his aircraft. Poco who is operating as cover, attempts to suppress the gun crew with his 2.75” rockets. They miss terribly. Unperturbed, the S-60 crew continues to pour the lead on Gringo. Jinking in all directions, Gringo manages to maneuver through the hail of gunfire, but not without a few near misses. He picks up 3 stress points for his efforts.
After surviving the AA fire, Gringo releases his ordnance on the target. With his +2 ATG all three bombs find their targets. One of the Mk.82’s manages to strike the main storage tank, setting off a chain reaction of secondary explosions that decimate the facility. With the fuel storage facility now a raging inferno of burning petrol, G.O. decides to drop his 1000 lb Mk.83 on the pesky S-60 that gave Gringo so much grief earlier. The gun and it’s crew are so focused on Gringo, they never see the aircraft that drops the bomb that kills them. All aircraft move to high altitude and move into the west approach on their exit path.

Turn 4
Nothing to do on turn 4 but move to our exit area. The two SAM sites on the board were poorly positioned by the enemy, lucky for us. We draw our Home Bound Event card and get... Show of Force. Pentagon Support moves the Politics tracker one spot back to to the left. Obviously, the Joint Chiefs approve of our efforts thus far.



So here’s what the boys look like post mission:
Gringo(-1 cool) 5 stress
Poco 3 stress
G.O. 3 stress

5 total VP’s after 2 days. We need a few high value targets if we want to get enough points for a great evaluation. I wonder if we get bonus VP’s for bandits? That would help tremendously. All in all, a good day. We’ve gotten really lucky on our Event card draws and our die rolls. The dice usually hate me, but here’s to hoping our luck continues.
          Forty years later, Iran's youth are divided over the revolution's legacy      Cache   Translate Page      
Born after the 1979 revolution, Iran's "revolution babies" have to deal with the legacy of the uprising as the country struggles financially under reinstated US sanctions. As Iran inches closer to celebrating 40 years since Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi's overthrow and the creation of the Islamic Republic, many young Iranians believe the revolution's goals remain out of reach. "We had some goals and still believe those goals were right. We had demands and still think those demands were fair. But the revolution failed to fully realise our demands, while we rose in rebellion for those demands," Farzad Farahani, a 22-year-old university student, told The Associated Press. The revolution was meant to bring economic, education, and social progress to Iran. The leaders of the uprising also promised the people a share of Iran's profit-making oil industry. But some believe the economic situation is worse than it should be. "The economic situation is very bad. My father went to the war and was wounded in action, he was ready to sacrifice his life, and he loved Imam (Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini)," said Kimia Zakeri, a 20-year-old student. "My parents are very unhappy. They think that the economic situation should have been much better. People's beliefs are a bit less firm than before," she added. But others see some positive changes since the fall of the Shah. "Before this 40-year period, people had no right to vote, said Mohammad Ahadi. "They said the Shah had said this or that, and what he said had to be done. But today, when we look at everything after 40 years: our missile and nuclear technology, and our achievements in the Middle East and around the world are talked about everywhere around the globe," added the 25-year-old cook. In general, society is more equal since the revolution. Today, nearly all Iranians can read compared to only 47% of the population in 1976, according to the latest government statistics. More people also attend higher education, with university enrollment being very high now. The problem in Iran is high unemployment as at least one in four graduates can't find work, according to the International Monetary Fund , which predicts an unemployment rate of 14% in 2019. Mania Filum, 27, said that even though more Iranians are educated many seek opportunities to leave because of the country's economic situation. "Everybody plans to win funds for PhDs and leave Iran," Filum said. Who's fault is it? Iran has experienced a higher birth rate since the uprising because family planning clinics were dismantled after the revolution. Young Iranians have experienced moments of heavy political tension but also lived through a brief cut in sanctions after Iran reached a nuclear deal which limited its enrichment of uranium in 2015. However, a sanction-free Iran didn't last long after Donald Trump reinstated them when he withdrew from the agreement in 2018. For Shayan Momeni, 27, Iran's problems are produced by the US. "America likes to dominate the Middle East, but it can't achieve that. Now it's struggling to bring us to our knees, but it hasn't succeeded." But Filum disagreed. "Japan could have cut its ties with America forever after Hiroshima and could have kept saying, 'Death to America' until now, but it kept its ties, enjoyed the benefits, and this greatly helped its progress," she said. "But Iran is not like that. It still insists that America is bad, it's our enemy. Britain is bad, it's our enemy." "This is independence at what price? At the cost of our lives getting worse?" she asked.

          Conjoined twins die in Yemen due to lack of medical equipment      Cache   Translate Page      

Conjoined twins die in Yemen due to lack of medical equipmentConjoined twin boys born under blockade in Yemen nearly three weeks ago died on Saturday after attempts to secure a potentially life-saving evacuation failed.  In a statement carried by the Houthi-run Saba news, the health ministry said the twins’ deaths reflected the humanitarian situation Yemen's children are facing as a result of the war. The boys’ plight and the flurry of international media it generated has cast the politics of Yemen’s war and their human cost into stark relief. Abdelkhaleq and Abdelkarim were born in Houthi-controlled Sanaa, at a hospital so woefully underequipped after years of bombardment and blockade by the Saudi-led coalition that doctors could perform an MRI. The twins’ doctors had begged for them to be evacuated to a hospital equipped to give them life-saving treatment.  "They need to travel immediately. They will not be able to survive in Yemen under the social, political and economic circumstances in this country,” said Dr Faisal al-Balbali, the head of the neonatal unit at al-Thawra hospital in Sanaa. But Yemen’s airspace is controlled by the Saudi-led coalition and, following Houthi missile attacks on Saudi Arabia, no civilian flights have taken off from Sanaa since 2015. The only flights permitted in and out are those operated by the United Nations. Despite offers from a Saudi organisation, the King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Works, to provide the needed medical care, no way around the blockade was found. Yemen’s nearly four-year war has seen the country brought to the brink of starvation, its infrastructure destroyed, as Iran-backed Houthi rebels battle the Saudi-led coalition which aims to restore the government of Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, who was ousted by the Houthis in 2014. UN-led peace talks re-started in December 2018 and aim to implement a ceasefire and military withdrawal in Red Sea port city Hodeidah, and to reopen Sanaa airport.



          Poland to buy US rocket system for $414 million      Cache   Translate Page      

Poland to buy US rocket system for $414 millionPoland said Sunday it will buy mobile rocket launchers worth $414 million (365 million euros) from the United States, as Warsaw seeks closer ties with Washington amid concerns over a resurgent Russia. The deal, due to be signed Wednesday, will "significantly increase the Polish army's capacities," Defence Minister Mariusz Blaszczak told journalists Sunday, adding that delivery was expected by 2023. Made by US weapons giant Lockheed Martin, the HIMARS system can launch six guided rockets with a range of 70 kilometres (37 miles), or a single missile with a 300-kilometre range.

          Iran showcases a massive underground missile factory, new rockets, warheads      Cache   Translate Page      
As Tehran unveiled its newest weapon, it also shared rare footage of a secretive underground complex where Iranian missiles are being built. It has vowed to carry on with its missile program, despite objections from the West. Iran's new missile was showcased on Thursday, with top military officials unveiling the weapon and, in an unprecedented move, showing the subterranean factory. The location of the facility was not disclosed, for obvious reasons. The facility was described by the Iranian media as an "underground city" - and its scale appears to be quite impressive. Footage from the scene shows vast corridors, full of various missile parts, including warheads, all at different stages of assembly. The videos also showed workers at the plant fulfilling tasks, from merely spinning nuts to fine-tuning some tiny electronic devices, thought to be parts of the missiles' guidance system.
          US killing INF treaty further hampers any hopes of peace      Cache   Translate Page      
The decision to withdraw from the INF was not based on a military necessity, but a political one. With his announcement that the United States is suspending compliance with and withdrawing from the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has sparked a fundamental debate about the future of arms control. The INF Treaty was at the heart of a new arms control regime created by the Reagan administration that helped lead to the end of the Cold War. Now, far from being the no-brainer the Trump administration is suggesting, the death of the treaty could easily harm rather than bolster U.S. and allied security.
