Why Trump Would Almost Certainly Be Violating The Constitution If He Continues To Own His Businesses
Huffington Post - about 1 year
The meaning of the Emoluments Clause is fairly clear. And it all goes back to a diamond-encrusted snuffbox Ben Franklin got from Louis XVI. by Richard Tofel Far from ending with President-elect Trump’s announcement that he will separate himself from the management of his business empire, the constitutional debate about the meaning of the Emoluments Clause — and whether Trump will be violating it — is likely just beginning. That’s because the Emoluments Clause seems to bar Trump’s ownership of his business. It has little to do with his management of it. Trump’s tweets last Wednesday said he would be “completely out of business operations.” But unless Trump sells or gives his business to his children before taking office the Emoluments Clause would almost certainly be violated. Even if he does sell or give it away, any retained residual interest, or any sale payout based on the company’s results, would still give him a stake in its fortunes, again fairly clearly violating ...

Liz Smith: Power in Hollywood
Huffington Post - about 5 years
"THE THING women have yet to understand is nobody gives you power. You just take it," said Roseanne Barr as she climbed the heights in Hollywood, taking power, and not apologizing. PEOPLE ARE again talking about: Rosanne Barr's return to network TV in a series for NBC. This is good news for those of us who still like to watch real television. Rosanne, the groundbreaking sitcom than ran for nine seasons, was not only one of the best and funniest, it was a fascinating journey into Rosanne's own mind, as she morphed, emotionally and physically. She brought her volatile personal issues to the set and into the scripts. It was like watching somebody go a little mad, season by season. Roseanne -- with the help of her brilliant co-stars John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf and Rosanne's TV "children" -- developed into a fabulous comedienne. She wasn't in the beginning. In the first couple of seasons, when Rosanne and her family were at their most blue-collar and normal, Rosanne...

Interview: Keith Morris (of OFF!)
Misformusic - almost 6 years
OFF! is a hardcore supergroup with members from Black Flag and the Circle Jerks (Keith Morris, vox), Redd Kross (Steven Shane McDonald, bass), Burning Brides (Dimitri Coats, guitar), and Rocket From the Crypt and Hot Snakes (Mario Rubalcaba, drums). After four EPs, the band finally released its first full-length, OFF!, on May 8th. Recently, Consequence of Sound spoke with Morris about the band, its formation, and how they don’t have the time for songs filled with pomp and circumstance. We also chatted about riding the party train that was the Circle Jerks, checking egos at the studio door, what it means to sell out, and how much he loves the Dream Syndicate’s Days of Wine and Roses. I used to believe that if a punk band was around long enough, they simply became a rock band. You seemed to have proven me wrong. We could just as easily be a rock band, because the guys in this band, they love… two of them, I think maybe three of them, were members of the KISS Army. Nice! So I...

Lois and the Love Interview & Gig Preview
Obsessed with Film - What Cultur - almost 6 years
The year was 1993. I was watching Channel 4′s ‘The Word’ (it’s not a crime, honest!), dreaming of leaving the one horse town I lived in for University the following year when my speakers started crackling a sound that was like a locomotive rushing headlong towards me… ‘Supersonic’ by Oasis was blaring out and I knew I needed to follow these guys through thick and thin! Since then bands have come and gone – I’d continually listen to new sounds hoping to revisit that same raw energy feel I had that day, but nothing really had the same impact… Until last week! A good friend linked me You Tube Footage of ‘Lois and the Love’ playing live with the words ‘this sound is going to explode’. A handful of songs and twenty minutes later the goosebumps had returned and like those 19 years ago I was listening to a band standing on the edge something huge. What grabbed me straight away was a raw live energy, a dirty psychedelic almost sleaze like sound reminding me of a mixture of classic late ’6...

Listomania - Top 10 Psychedelic Albums
NME - almost 6 years
Richard Norris is a man of many psych talents. With Erol Alkan he makes up The Wizard’s Sleeve and alone he’s the talent behind Time & Space Machine. His second T&SM album, ‘Taste The Lazer’ is out next Monday (April 9th). Here he runs down his all-time greatest psychedelic albums. 1 Love, 'Forever Changes' Arthur Lee's startling, revelatory classic highlights the extremes of the psychedelic era. It's joyous, uplifting and sweet in parts, while at the same time menacing, introverted and paranoid. I don't want to spoil it if you've never heard it before, so all I'll say is if you haven't heard it, you need to. It's unreservedly recommended as one of the all time greatest albums.
