Sperm Count: Twatter

2017-02-06-1486391336-7142789-51QSdRKDNhL._SX331_BO1204203200_.jpg

Everybody knows Twitter, the social network. As they used to say Grand Union always opens opposite an A&P and one wonders why there’s no Twatter. As far as social networking is concerned Twatter could be a major site, offering people a lot of twat. Twatter could be a place that encourages the ultimate in free expression since twat is a pejorative for a female secondary sex characteristic that’s also called snatch, though Snatcher neither rolls of the tongue as well, nor exudes the associations of twitter whose 140 character missives have opened up new worlds of brevity. Twatter would say it all and without even the need for characters. But how would it actually work? If the number of men and women in the world is almost equal, Twatter would provide a venue where at least one half of the population could show their goods. Underneath all social networking is the threat or enticement of sexual contact and Twatter would be the most bold-faced of the offerings in cyberspace. Your only qualification for being able to post would be to have one and once you were on, you would be home free, though males would be able to friend their favorite twats. Gone would be the headshots that you find on most dating sites. Put up or shut up, Twatter would live up to its name and give twat it’s place in the sun.

Watch This Guy Count To 100,000 For No Reason Whatsoever

If you’ve got 24 hours to spare, you could always entertain yourself by watching this video of YouTuber MrBeast counting up to 100,000.

MrBeast admits he only did it because he was “bored,” and it may sound a tedious prospect ― but it had garnered more than 6.5 million views by Saturday morning. 

It could be worse, however, as the American YouTuber says he actually spent a total of 40 hours counting upwards ― and sped certain sections of the final video up because his editing software caps the limit at 24 hours.

“This is the most I’ve ever tortured myself,” MrBeast wrote in a caption at the start of the clip, which he posted online Sunday.

While the sheer number of hits that the video is garnering undoubtedly prove it’s a viral smash, it’s probably best you don’t try this at home ― as a lack of sleep can seriously harm your health.

The Huffington Post has reached out to MrBeast for further information, but in the meantime it appears he’s already planning his next mega-hit:

(Disclaimer: HuffPost did not watch the clip in its entirety because, well, we have other serious issues to investigate. Like trick shots and clever donkeys.)

Sperm Count: Was Blind Justice Multitasking?

2016-12-26-1482764873-9924808-HK_Central_Statue_Square_Legislative_Council_Building_n_Themis_s.jpg

When you’re young you masturbate, but when you get on in years you masticate. You’ve seen old codgers chewing their cud. A young man in the heart of his prime doesn’t think twice about carving up a piece of steak, but as you get older things that were taken for granted now become the mountain to climb, especially if you’ve got to work around implants or dentures. A young man can shake a leg literally, holding his penis in one hand while gnawing on a drumstick with the other and there are young women who eat their take out Chinese with a vibrator in one hand and chopsticks in the other. Multitasking is really for the young who don’t think twice about having sex while relieving themselves on the toilet. Remember plumpkin, the sexual act that occurs when a guy is being blown while taking a shit? It’s a pleasure of the young. Can you imagine aging Lothsarios having the aerobic wherewithal to indulge in such a pursuit? There are some people who think that the model for the Statue of Liberty was up to some kind of strange activity when she held the torch on high. Every one subscribes to the notion that she was embracing freedom, but there are those who think she was holding on to something else–only you have to be young to engage in activities like that. You even have to be young to pull the wool over people’s eyes and what about Justice with her scales and blindfold. What if Blind Justice were a fetishist?

There Are So Few Women In Music Production, No One Bothers To Count

In February, Taylor Swift took the stage at the 58th annual Grammy Awards to accept Album of the Year on behalf of the large team behind her highly celebrated album “1989.” During her speech, Swift touted a message of female empowerment, encouraging women to take credit for their own success.

“There are going to be people along the way who try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame. But if you just focus on the work,” the pop star said, “[someday] you will look around and you will know it was you and the people who love you who put you there. And that will be the greatest feeling in the world.”

Swift hoped to encourage women to take credit for their own success. The message was well-intentioned, but diluted somewhat by the people surrounding her: a large number of producers, all of them male. Quickly, the criticism started to fly online — why couldn’t such a powerful female pop star, especially one as publicly feminist as Swift, find some other women to collaborate with? 

But the truth is, the low number of women involved in the making of “1989” is actually fairly high by industry standards. A group of 19 people, aside from Swift, are credited with making the album. Included are two women: Imogen Heap and Laura Sisk. And while neither of the women appeared behind Swift at the ceremony, their presence in the studio meant that nearly 11 percent of those involved in creating “1989” were female. A sad number, but even more tragic is that it is still better than the gender balance in the industry at large.

For the few women in those technical roles, their daily work life is sometimes flavored by skepticism from their male peers: Is she really here to work?

“A lot of people assume I’m someone’s wife or girlfriend when they first see me in the studio,” Sisk, a sound engineer who’s worked with pop stars including Carly Rae Jepsen and Shakira, told The Huffington Post in an email. “I’ve gotten used to giving overly technical explanations of why I’m doing what I’m doing, because I’m always questioned at every step.”

A few things to ponder when considering the state of female producers in the music industry: There are so few of them, we couldn’t find a single stock photo showing a lady on the technical side of the booth. There are so few of them, women in the industry are often asked whether they’re really getting help from a man. But most important, there are so few of them that audio recording associations haven’t bothered to count their number in over 15 years.

Look at the website for Women’s Audio Mission, a nonprofit dedicated to supporting women in audio production, and you’ll find a statistic that says only 5 percent of people who work in the production of music, television, news and film are women. It’s a figure occasionally referenced by media, and sometimes mumbled within the industry. (If music professionals don’t know the number of women producers exactly, they’re at least well aware there are not many.)

When reached for comment, WAM founder Terri Winston told HuffPost that “5 percent” number was actually an estimate made by the Women in Audio Committee of the Audio Engineering Society back in 2000. Today, Winston’s organization believes the number is even smaller than that, based on attendance at Audio Engineering Society conventions. 

“It is still too small of a number to spend time measuring,” Winston wrote in an email. A representative from the Audio Engineering Society agreed, noting that time spent counting could be better spent on educational efforts. AES, which serves audio engineers and those in the “allied arts,” does not keep any more recent statistics on women producers, either, although a separate representative told HuffPost that 7 percent of AES members are women. 

The number aiming to enter the field may be slightly higher. Susan Rogers, former producer for Prince and current professor at the Berklee College of Music, which offers a major in music production and engineering, put the number of women in those classes at around 10 to 15 percent. But in professional studios, there are signs that there are even fewer women that that.

Asked how many female producers she knew of, Shakari Linder, a female music producer who goes by TRAKGIRL and has earned credits with Timbaland and Omarion, among others, told HuffPost, “I can count on my hand, actually — probably five.”

Early on, Linder explained how she built mental “armor” to defend against subtle accusations against her professional abilities.

“Coming up, some men view women as, ‘Oh, they don’t know what they’re talking about,'” she said. “Once you hit that play button, it’s a whole different story.” 

While there is an undeniable lack of female producers, any attempt to count their number would likely be complicated by the absence of any agreed-upon definition of what a “producer” does. Some involved in the production of audio identify as “engineers” taking on sound boards, while others have little technical expertise, focusing more on fostering working relationships between other producers. Still others might also be considered musicians. Some who do production work, including some women, therefore may not self-identify as such. 

Album credits full of male names may also create the false perception of a male-only field that precludes women from joining in or getting credit when they do. Sisk recalled an incident where, after a week of recording, editing and mixing an artist’s work in the small confines of a studio, the artist sounded shocked to hear that she was actually serving as the audio engineer on his album. (Upon its release, she wasn’t credited.) 

Claiming a producer credit for oneself can take a lot of confidence, according to Esthero, a singer who involves herself in every aspect of production. That’s a bold quality that she believes may not always come naturally.

“I have the audacity to call myself a producer,” Esthero explained. “I have the ego to be like, ‘Wait a minute! I did that. I participated in that. I made those choices. All those compliments you’re getting — I did that!’”

WAM, which counts about 850 women members, is one of a small handful of organizations working to ensure women consider audio recording a viable career option, having trained thousands of women over the past decade and placed them in professional roles. Another women-focused organization, Women in Music, offers panel discussions and networking events for women involved in music as producers, managers, attorneys and label executives. 

It will take many more women to consider a career in music production for the gender imbalance to right itself. But changing the perception of behind-the-board roles as the realm of men is also a much-needed step.

In an interview with NPR, the singer Claire Boucher, who goes by Grimes, explained how making songs with other people is a gendered experience. Women, historically, create the “top line,” or vocal melodies, while men take care of the beats. Despite her experience in production, Boucher said she wasn’t allowed to touch a computer in those cooperative songwriting environments.

“I came in with experience as a producer and I wasn’t allowed to produce — so how could any woman who didn’t have experience as a producer ever learn how to produce?” Boucher told NPR. “If there are stereotypes of, ‘Women do certain jobs in music and men do certain jobs,’ the way the studio works, it’s not easy to escape that.”

    The Count of Monte Cristo + The Three Musketeers + The Man in the Iron Mask (3 Unabridged Classics)

    The Count of Monte Cristo + The Three Musketeers + The Man in the Iron Mask (3 Unabridged Classics)


    This carefully crafted ebook: “The Count of Monte Cristo + The Three Musketeers + The Man in the Iron Mask (3 Unabridged Classics)” contains 3 unabridged classic books in one volume and is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Count of Monte Cristo is an adventure novel by Alexandre Dumas, first published in serial form from August 1844 until January 1846. The story takes place in France, Italy, islands in the Mediterranean, and in the Levant during the historical events of 1815-1838. It begins from just before the Hundred Days period and spans through to the reign of Louis-Philippe of France. The historical setting is a fundamental element of the book. It focuses on a man who is wrongfully imprisoned, escapes from jail, acquires a fortune and sets about getting revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment. However, his plans have devastating consequences for the innocent as well as the guilty. The Three Musketeers is a novel by Alexandre Dumas, first published in serial form in 1844. Set in the 17th century, it recounts the adventures of a young man named d’Artagnan after he leaves home to travel to Paris, to join the Musketeers of the Guard. D’Artagnan is not one of the musketeers of the title; those are his friends Athos, Porthos and Aramis, inseparable friends who live by the motto “all for one, one for all”, a motto which is first put forth by d’Artagnan. The Man in the Iron Mask climactically concludes the epic adventures of the three Musketeers. The Man in the Iron Mask is a name given to a prisoner arrested as Eustache Dauger in 1669 or 1670, and held in a number of jails, including the Bastille and the Fortress of Pignerol. He was held in the custody of the same jailer, Bénigne Dauvergne de Saint-Mars, for a period of 34 years. The possible identity of this man has been thoroughly discussed and has been the subject of many books, because no one ever saw his face, which was hidden by a mask of black velvet c

    A Pilgrim’s Process To “The Gospel According to Thomas Jefferson, Charles Dickens and Count Leo Tolstoy: DISCORD”

    Twenty-seven years ago I had an idea for a play. This week, it opens in Los Angeles at the NoHo Arts Center under the title “The Gospel According to Thomas Jefferson, Charles Dickens and Count Leo Tolstoy: DISCORD”. I don’t know how audiences and critics will respond to it, but I know this epic process has enriched my life.

    The journey started in June 1986 with a near death asthma attack that landed me in the hospital for a week. Upon my release, I experienced an epiphany like Saul on the road to Damascus. Or Scrooge on Christmas morning. I instantly evolved from cynical comedian to non-affiliated deist. It became the B.C./A.D. moment of my life. I went into a bliss which faded after ten days. Which I did not want to happen. I wanted to permanently become the better man that I had been during that time.

    So I began a spiritual journey, making a pledge to the universe that I would henceforth consider anyone who wanted to talk with me about God, have me read their literature or attend a ceremony.

    So it was with great interest that, on October 5, 1988, I watched an episode of “A World of Ideas” on PBS. Host Bill Moyers was interviewing Rev. Forrester Church of All Souls Unitarian in New York. And it was here that I learned about the Jefferson Bible.

    In 1804 President Jefferson bought two identical copies of the King James Bible. He needed two versions because he would need both sides of the page for his secret project. Then, over three consecutive nights, he took a razor and cut out from the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John only the verses he liked. (As you’ll hear, his audacity in condensing Holy Scripture was compounded by what he edited out.) Jefferson then pasted his chosen scraps of scripture into the pages of a blank book. He named his volume The Philosophy Of Jesus of Nazareth. Then, in 1819, while retired at Monticello, Jefferson produced a sequel to called The Life And Morals Of Jesus Of Nazareth. For this more elaborate work, he bought eight Bibles — two each in Latin, Greek, French and English. He then divided a scrapbook’s pages into four columns so one could follow his expanded chronicle of Christ in a single language by reading down or, by reading across, scan a verse in a quartet of tongues.

    Jefferson died on July 4, 1826, the 50th anniversary of the Declaration. His heirs sold Life And Morals to the Smithsonian in 1895 for $ 400. In 1904, Congress printed 9,000 copies of it to be given to incoming Senators and Representatives. In 1956, Idaho’s Senator Frank Church received a copy that he then gave to his young son, Forester. Church the younger later credited Jefferson’s work with leading him to Harvard Divinity School and on to a career working in a, well, church. In 1988 he was editing a new edition of Jefferson’s Bible with Yale Divinity School’s Jaroslav Pelikan — and thus the subject came up on Moyers’ program.

    Now, I had recently seen the great English actor Alec McCowen perform his one-man show of the unabridged St. Mark’s Gospel. So I thought that there might be a play here. But that’s as far as it went.

    In 1996, I was producing Comedy Central’s “Politically Incorrect With Bill Maher.” The show moved that year from New York to Los Angeles. My wife and I got a house near Larchmont Village. There is a bookstore there called Chevalier’s and, one day, I found a book called “The Life Of Our Lord” by Charles Dickens. It turns out that he, too, had written a gospel. His was for his children and he included all of the miracles that Jefferson’s razor had cut out. There was a play: the two of them debate their visions of Christ.

    But not so fast. While reading Stephen Mitchell’s excellent “The Gospel According To Jesus,” I discovered the Leo Tolstoy had also abridged the gospels. So I my debating duet became a trio.

    One hundred drafts and 50 readings later, the play is coming to fruiting.

    And, as I look back on the research that I have done, I’ve come to understand that the careers of Jefferson, Dickens and Tolstoy as something of a trajectory of humanity’s quest for liberty:

    In 1776, young slave-owner Thomas Jefferson asserted, in his Declaration of Independence, the “self-evident” truth that all are “created equal” and endowed by God “with certain unalienable rights,” including “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” His words sparked a Revolution.

    After which, Jefferson became our Ambassador to France. Just before their Revolution. Which devolved into the Reign of Terror. Which was described in A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.

    Dickens became the favorite novelist of young Leo Tolstoy.

    Tolstoy’s success as a novelist prompted a suicidal depression. Which launched a spiritual journey. Which culminated with his assertion that the central teaching of Jesus Christ is for us all to “resist not evil.” This was developed, as revolution fermented in Czarist Russia, into the technique of “passive resistance.” Which Tolstoy described in the last letter he ever wrote, in 1910, to a young Mohatma Gandhi.

    Gandhi, by passive resistance, liberated India. He inspired a young Martin Luther King, Jr. to apply the philosophy of passive resistance to struggle for African Americans to be able to free ride at the front of a bus, eat at a lunch counter or attend a puclic school.

    In his most famous speech, King asserted that the “magnificent” words of Thomas Jefferson and the other “architects of our Republic” were a “promissory note to which every American was to fall heir” and that he and others in the American Civil Rights movement had come to “cash this check.” And a nation’s slumbering conscience slowly but surely awoke. And these rights – deemed “self-evident” and “unalienable” by Jefferson – were increasingly asserted Black, female, gay, brown, red, disabled, yellow and poor Americans.

    And, in 2008, a president was elected whose skin color could have, in 1776, made him eligible to have been owned.

    Humanity has come a long way. And, in pursuing this project, I have, too.
