   Today is MAY 14 I am at FRANCE actually!  oops I typed in the wrong CITY yesterday...
The day is at the Cannes Film festival from May 7 to 9, although it continues til the 17th i_ believe...  and  I am here  CANNES FRANCE...
                 Italy love to my capos
my sponsors and my team of hungry people, and of course the team that has eaten:)     
   here is the airforce showing planes they have 
 the 12 airplanes totally cool
                                       
And of course thanks to my good friends at The Air Force I have received info on my "good friend" Putin, although I only playfully said hi one day in Prague as he was entering a black limo, he seemed like a nice guy...then all hell broke loose with the Trump Administration and Mueller etc. So, I thought, what is it really like to live in Russia under Putin and a couple of university students have said, "He is a nice guy. Overall as leaders go. He isn't a bad guy. He is a good guy, and yes I feel safe in Russia. What Putin is most concerned with, the country is China. He sees China as the silent nuclear threat that is slowly and silently building its strength underneath the nose of the entire world. And yes Putin is worried about China. He sees America as a Peaceful country and not really a threat to any other country. They, meaning you, (they say as they point at me as if I am America) see you as a peaceful country that has never and will never force their power on another country in a aggressive takeover position. You only go into countries who attack America or the world. America isn't seen as a aggressive hostile country. 
Yet at the same time, Putin is rather funny. I mean he basically helped orchestrate the pushing out of the Syrian people to the world, about 3,000,000 or the Syrian and other refugees, yet he keeps a very tight control on his borders and has been known to say off-handedly, "No I am not worried about the refugees coming into Russia. It is impossible, we have strong border patrol!" Aaa... "And what could they find in Russia? They wouldn't want to come to Russia anyway. There is nothing here for the refugees." OK! I guess it is alright to invade Syria, take the country and make everybody move as long as the rest of the world takes care of these witnessed protected relocation syrians and they can't come into Russia. No way no how. 
   Mean while back at the ranch, the Syrian people are blending in just fine with the Europeans and the English and the Australians and pretty much everywhere else they go. They have jobs, wives, husbands, new babies, new lives, careers, businesses and a gentle undisturbed humor and way of seeing the world.

"The cultures of the world have changed dramatically the last 5 years. The pure lines of Italians and French, and Germans and Europe and United Kingdom, etc have become a little more Americanized without the American structure and open lands. Which means that in America when all the immigrants come and make themselves American, the word itself is a combination of races and backgrounds. German and English, French and English, Italian and Austrian. Each person is a mixture to become a american. Yet the land and the modernization of the country United States of America, the land of opportunity, the vast amounts of businesses to be built and people to support these businesses is vast. No so in Europe. You have a way of life and a established way of doing business and established businesses and some must go before new ones can be built. That is essentially the difference. One in Italy must become Italian and function in a already existing community with a business that fits. In Venice you pretty much have to 100% be in the tourism business. In Oklahoma, or Denver, or Wyoming, or Houston or New York even, there is many opportunities, cultures, business opportunities and land is plenty. America has huge miles and miles and miles of land undeveloped, untouched, unknown to civilisation. That is the difference I believe that people would love to come and develop American frontier lands if given the chance, o yes and the green card...Mr. Trump?

                                          POLITICAL NEWS OF THE DAY from Lori

     YESTERDAY had a American student in Russia say that while he stdied in Georgia, Moldovia,and Russia, the Russian government had telemarketers make Facebook accounts, befriend American citizens 6 months before the election and once they had the smericans as friends and they trusted each other started s Facebook telemarketing push to vote for Trump. I asked why they would do that? He said he figured Putin thought Mr. Trump would be more easy to manipulate than Hillary. He also said they said they had a network set up in America to "lose" voters applications do that when you went to vote they said you were not registered. My question to him is why? Putting aggressively campaigned his people propogandaized Americans and to stay the vote. If that is true Mueller should seize Facebook accounts of Russians that were set up within one year before elections and check out their conversations. It wouldn't t affect Mr Trump if it all came unasked for from Putin

 I try to say a serious quote once in awhile, the events as described since they happened to me personally I should be allowed to state my opinion and having good naturedly said that nobody has ever told me my days and events of 1991 were classified and I shouldn't talk about these events...and they had 27 years to let me know, so that being the facts here it is...
In 1991 the Kuwait war happened, I studied in London at LAPA, and the Russian coup of 3 days happened, the people toppled the statue in Kremlin square, while I was in Venecia Italy and Milan. During those days nobody spoke english and all we had were italian papers and italian television in Italy. Maybe military( ours)? Stole KGB files, from the Kremlin where the civilians had 3 days of free reign and who knows what else, anyway when we went to Athens airport where we were held at Grand Bretagna 1 day, our flight to New York was canceled and I had to really sweet talk my way into a ride h ome, they then put us on a air bus back to JFK where upon landing with military personnel of 400 we all got the gates of customs opened up and told to run through customs...we were literally waved through go go go go... 
     Talking and chatting with General Schwarzkopf years later he told me that they had wanted and hoped to find
 "the baby on the lap..." Here is the allegedly sentences from here to   The website is started in 2009 in Paris with the help of lovely Parisians that I interviewed! so I don't have to keep saying allegedly. 

       I always wondered if those military secrets from Russia were in the World _Trade Center and Pentagon and if Russia organized 911 to destroy all codes evidence etc. Was Lockheed Martin a company in the World Trade Center? And if America had the KGB files, and codes of all intel of Russia why do we constantly have to do FBI probes to see what Putin is doing? Was the entire packages stolen from the Russians during that time of 3 days destroyed in the World Trade Center and Pentagon. Was anybody killed in the Pentagon that would of been privy to that information? And do I have to say allegedly? How much intel could 400 plus military people carry through customs and didn't they have disks in 1991 or was there no time? Were hard drives taken instead...what else was taken? 
           And the last question is WAS IT RUSSIA who did 911?  and the "muslim" influence was a red herring?

                   Here is the totally approved Immune Booster for anybody who needs to strengthen their immune system, basically everybody, it is written in German...
Okay mein Immungebäude Essen von 30 Tagen ... Seit ich meine Metatarsalen an meinem Fuß gebrochen habe, musste ich mein Immunsystem wieder aufbauen ... ja das ist richtig die letzten 37 Tage war das folgende ... bereit Um das Immunsystem für dich zu arbeiten, anstatt gegen dich?
Tag 1 bis Tag8
1 Raw Clove Knoblauch täglich, 1 rote Paprika täglich, 1 Kopf Brokkoli täglich, 1 gebratenes Stück Huhn täglich, 1 Tasse Sonnenblumenkerne alle 5 Tage (ehrlich die einzige Defienz, die Sie töten wird, wenn Sie es nicht haben Dass man ... wenn man allergisch auf Sonnenblumenkerne ist, muss man jede Woche Öl auf Salaten verwenden.) 1 Orangen- oder Orangensaft 100% täglich, 1 Kiwi oder Zitrone oder Limette täglich und Zitrone und Limette müssen die Haut ... Vertrauen Ich gewöhne mich daran, 450 Milligramm Echinacea pro Tag in jeder Form und ehrlich verdoppeln, dass die ersten 5 Tage, um das Immunsystem zu arbeiten, Holunder, wenn Sie es wünschen, grüner Tee, um das System zu reinigen, Ingwer und 1 Thunfisch frisch jeder 5 Tage oder 1 Lachs frisch alle fünf Tage.
     Sie sagen, o wow das ist neue Neuigkeiten. Außer das ist alles, was du die ersten 8 Tage essen kannst. Das ist es. Keine Beilagen, etc. und man kann ein Glas Wein pro Tag haben, da das eigentlich hilft.

      Jetzt Tag 9, das oben mit Ausnahme einer Mahlzeit können Sie Nudeln oder Reis oder Cheeseburger oder Steak oder Heilbutt oder was auch immer Sie wollen. Eine Mahlzeit. Die anderen Mahlzeiten rein die oben Sie sehen, ich kann keine Antibiotika haben. NONE Zilch Darum denke an das Essen, das ich als deine Medizin umrissen habe. Wenn Sie sitzen, um das Essen zu essen 3 mal Tag oder 5 mal am Tag erinnern, dass es Medizin ist.

     Jetzt Tag 10 die strenge Medizin, die Sie hatten und das ist es. Tag 11 Sie können eine Mahlzeit mit Nudeln oder Reis etc. haben und das ist die Art und Weise müssen Sie Ihr Leben wechseln die nächsten 30 Tage.
   Um die strengen Immun-Booster können Sie einen grünen grünen Salat und Kohl, fügen Sie Gurken und Zucchini, fügen Sie Kaliflower statt Brokkoli eines Tages, Papaya-Saft statt Orangensaft, Tomaten und Gemüse-Säfte, fügen Sie Mandeln ... fügen Sie Früchte und Säfte . Diese sind der 12. Tag bis zum 30. noch müssen Sie die Knoblauchzehe und den Brokkoli und die Sonnenblumenkerne mindestens 3 Mal pro Woche mit der strengen Diät essen. Denken Sie daran, Sie sind auf Medikamente für Ihren Körper für Immun-Gebäude.
    Darüber hinaus, wenn aus irgendeinem Grund sind Sie auf Strahlung, müssen Sie verdoppeln die Dosen jeden Tag wie zwei rohe Knoblauchzehen, etc. Der Grund dafür ist, dass Strahlung zerstört das Immunsystem und daher müssen Sie doppelt aufbauen. Der Grund, warum Sie ab dem 12. Tag wechseln, ist, dass Sie Ihr Immunsystem lehren müssen, wie man sich allmählich aufbaut, doch geben Sie ihm Hilfe für die ersten 30 Tage. Nach 30 Tagen musst du die strenge Diät 3 Tage die Woche mit nur den strengen Speisen und Wasser und sonst nichts machen ... und an den anderen Tagen kannst du eine Mahlzeit mit etwas machen, was du liebst. Sie können beginnen, sich stärker und besser innerhalb von ein paar Tagen und das Immunsystem ist wirklich besser in etwa 3o Tage.
     Und ja dein Körper kann und wird gewinnen. Es ist entworfen, um zu leben und zu überleben und wenn du es lehrst, wie es wird. Diese Lebensmittel bauen weiße Blutzellzahl und das ist, was Sie brauchen ... wenn Sie die hohen Dosen von Knoblauch stehen können (nach ein paar Tagen, die ich nicht tun kann, können Sie und werden besser zusammen mit Echinacea, die ich konnte 'T von getan ohne.) Viel Glück im neuen Leben!

THE ANATOMY LESSON

Sixteenth-century sexual transgressions.

In 1525, Antonio Vignali, a young Sienese nobleman, founded a lofty-minded humanist society that he called, with boyish irreverence, the Academy of the Stunned (Accademia degli Intronati). The commandments of its motto—“Pray, Study, Rejoice, Harm No One, Believe No One”—were honored selectively. The Intronati were an élite cenacle of scholars who shared a devotion to vernacular literature; passionate republicanism tempered by contempt for the common man; flamboyant misogyny qualified by awe for women’s supposedly insatiable sexual appetites; hatred of clerical hypocrisy; youthful Weltschmerz; and a fervor for sodomy that, at least in Vignali’s case, bordered on the evangelical. The academy convened on Sundays, behind closed doors, to discuss philosophy, music, law, poetry, and language, and to critique its members’ work. It appears that quite a bit of member exercise took place also, as is the case at all frat parties, however exalted. The Intronati made a specialty of scandalous theatrical productions (one of their several affinities with the fin-de-siècle Decadents who orbited Oscar Wilde and the coteries that formed around d’Annunzio, Artaud, and Cocteau). Nevertheless, or perhaps therefore, they acquired an illustrious reputation that they still enjoy. Their most famous collaborative effort was “Gl’Ingannati” (“The Deceived”), a comedy with a cross-dressing heroine that influenced Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night.”

Sometime between 1525 and 1527, Vignali wrote a radically obscene satire on politics and sex that he called “La Cazzaria.” The sixteenth century was a golden age of the outré, particularly in France and Italy, and this slight opus, the length of a novella, took the form of a mock-Platonic, mock-scholastic dialogue narrated mostly by disembodied genitals. The manuscript was intended for private circulation among like-minded freethinkers, but someone—friend or foe, it isn’t clear—pirated a copy and had it printed without the author’s consent, crippling Vignali with a notoriety that he didn’t outlive. He went into exile a few years later and published nothing else in his lifetime.

Centuries passed, and “La Cazzaria” was more or less forgotten, though a few copies were conserved in the dirty-book archives of various august institutions and in the collections of libertine bibliophiles. One was unearthed about ten years ago in a Spanish house that was being demolished. Two sixteenth-century editions found their way to the Enfer at the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris—a restricted room legendary among French schoolboys (and the object, in fantasy, of more midnight break-ins than the vault at Fort Knox). Another copy settled into the bowels of the Vatican, and a nineteenth-century French translation was bequeathed to the British Library. There, in the early nineteen-nineties, Vignali’s work was discovered by a graduate student at Columbia—Ian Frederick Moulton—who was doing research on Renaissance erotica. Even at the end of the twentieth century, credentialled readers who had wangled entrée to the “Private Case” (a collection of pornography donated by the Victorian erotomane Henry Spencer Ashbee, the author of “My Secret Life”) were, Moulton notes, obliged to consult its contents at a special desk close to the librarians, presumably with both hands in view. Moulton has translated “La Cazzaria” into English for the first time, as “The Book of the Prick” (Routledge; $18.95). His exemplary introduction is nearly as long as the text itself and twice as worthwhile. It provides the historical perspective and intellectual sobriety missing from what Moulton tactfully describes as a “learned, but childish,” fable that is, even by the most liberal modern standards, a complete gross-out—though probably not to anyone who has tuned in to Howard Stern.

Cazzo is the vulgar Italian word for the male organ, hence the title, whose “closest English rendering,” Moulton writes, “is probably ‘cockery’—but that is too close to ‘cookery.’ . . . ‘Prickery’ might work, but it lacks the specificity of the Italian word. In English, ‘prick’ is a word with many meanings; in Italian, ‘cazzo’ can mean only one thing. In the text, I have translated ‘cazzo’ as ‘cock,’ but ‘Book of the Cock’ sounds like it might have something to do with poultry, so for the working English title, I settled on ‘Book of the Prick.’ ” Anglo-Saxon sexual slang, however, has a much harsher impact on the ear than its mellifluous Romance counterpart, and equivalent terms don’t carry the same charge. The percussive monosyllables and/or double final consonants of cock, balls, shit, dick, buttocks, jerk-off, prick, cunt, and fuck have a blunt, expletive force that isn’t rendered by (and betrays the puckish delicacy of) cazzo, potta, culo, fica, scopare, merda, coglioni, and cacca. The verbs incazzare and inculare, especially used reflexively, are certainly rude, but hardly so heavy-handed as “to take it up the ass.” It’s the difference, perhaps, between Ariel’s nimble tongue and Caliban’s thick one.

It would be satisfying, if only for the worthy Moulton’s sake, to report that “La Cazzaria” is a masterpiece rescued from obscurity by a feat of heroic exegesis, but, even making allowances for the nuances inevitably lost in translation, a masterpiece is something shapelier and more solid than an extended riff, however much fun it is. Vignali’s antic prose staggers in and out of coherence like a student video ad-libbed as it is shot, and it also reminded me of the scatological graffiti, most of it in Latin, that one finds in the catacombs of Roman churches, and which seems to have been etched into the stone expressly to deflate, for future generations, the mystique of antiquity.

The animator of “La Cazzaria” is a priapic scholar steeped in the classics who refers to himself by Vignali’s own nom de plume, Arsiccio Intronato. Arsiccio means “burned,” as in scorched by lust, and when the dialogue begins he is intent on seducing a younger academician named Sodo Intronato—the pseudonym of Vignali’s friend Marcantonio Piccolomini. Sodo is laughably ignorant of human anatomy and plumbing, and of nearly all sexual matters, including such basics as “why kissing feels good”; “why women have periods”; “why the crotch is hairy”; and “why jerking off was invented,” not to mention such headier questions as “why monks invented confession” (to ascertain if there were any “secrets in the art of fucking” they didn’t know) and, on a slightly more elevated note, “why no one today has profound knowledge” (people are too busy “making money, dominating others, and similar things . . . because wealth has placed its feet on virtue’s neck”). The conversation is introduced by a letter from a third member of the confraternity, Il Bizzarro, who claims to have borrowed this “naughty” text while waiting impatiently in Arsiccio’s study for a “filthy, succulent, and smutty” wench his host has promised to serve up. “Although our Arsiccio has always shown himself to be an enemy to women in all his affairs,” Il Bizzarro writes, “he is nonetheless as eager for their secrets as a monkey is for crayfish.”

The conceit of a found manuscript was a convention of the Platonic dialogue. Castiglione, for example, employs it for the “Book of the Courtier,” and it briefly occurred to me that Moulton’s account of finding a sensational text with an arcane publishing history written by a sex-crazed proto-Foucault was the conceit of a postmodern novel. In this case, it promises rather more in the way of esoteric revelation than the text delivers, partly because Sodo is such a dimwit, and partly because Vignali’s fable runs on raw nerve rather than imagination.

In a seventeenth-century history of the Intronati, Vignali was described as a “brilliant spirit” who “was accounted almost a monster because of his deformed body.” (The writer doesn’t specify the nature of the deformity.) He apparently fathered two legitimate sons, but extant documents make no mention of a wife. His work flaunts his preference for pliant youths of his own class. Homosexual camaraderie in general and man-boy love in particular flourished in Renaissance Tuscany, as it tends to in cultures that worship women’s purity by keeping them locked up. Moulton makes an interesting analogy between the “hyper-intellectual” machismo of Vignali and his circle and that of the (mostly) hyper-heterosexual Spanish artists of the nineteen-thirties, whose graphic forays into coprophilia and masturbation (Dali), priapism (Picasso), and perversity (Buñuel) were also part of a revolt against orthodox Catholicism, and an impulse to take refuge in absurdity and surrealism from an increasingly repressive and chaotic political climate. Intronato can mean “deaf” as well as “stunned” (though, with a little poetic license, one might also translate it as “stoned,” and the rambling tone of “La Cazzaria” leaves the impression that Vignali dashed it off in a state of intoxication). But the name, Moulton tells us, was an ironic reference to the spiritual battering that refined characters endure in periods of civic violence and instability. Siena’s independence was being menaced externally by the competing forces of the Hapsburg Empire and the Valois of France, and from within by the murderous intrigues among the five hereditary factions (monti) that ruled the Republic.

Despite the fact that his own noble family belonged to the preëminent Monte dei Nove, Vignali made them the villains of a parable that a less faithful translator might have been tempted to entitle “Genital Farm.” Drawing ironically upon accounts by Livy and Plutarch of a speech by the Roman senator Menenius Agrippa to a revolutionary mob (which Shakespeare, a little later, and without the irony, cribbed for a scene in Act I of “Coriolanus”), he dramatizes the internecine struggles that were wasting his city as a tale of warring body parts, though not the head, belly, and limbs of the classical version. Arsiccio describes to Sodo how the Big Cocks and their prideful consorts, the Beautiful Cunts, once formed a dominant party that tyrannized a coalition of the lesser-endowed: the Little Cocks and their allies, the Ugly Cunts and Assholes, whose plot for a democratic revolution was betrayed by the cowardly and opportunistic Balls. In the course of the fable, the victors reassert their mastery and wreak their revenge with the kind of atrocious violations that recent history has reclaimed from the realm of Sadean fantasy. But then, Arsiccio continues, at the urging of a wise if bloodthirsty seeress known as the Great Cunt of Modena, the vanquished negotiate their differences in a fraternal fashion, and strike back at their oppressors, who are, in turn, slaughtered or dispersed. “I will say this about the Big Cocks,” Modena concludes. “It is very possible they have taken refuge with some foreign power, from where, in a short time, seeing our discord, they may return to ruin and destroy each of us.” Her moral is a little vague, though it seems sound: the phallus represents power without a conscience; it cannot, therefore, be trusted; while it sometimes lies low, you can’t keep it down.

Vignali lived at a moment not without a certain cautionary relevance to the present, in which the avidity of a privileged generation shaking itself free from fundamentalism coexists with profound anxiety at the prospect of losing that insouciance to a dictatorship of the right-thinking. Rabelais and Aretino are probably the best known of the many pungent writers working in the same mode. They, as Moulton puts it, “revel in bodily functions, both sexual and digestive.” He also cites the poet Lorenzo Venier, the author of “La Puttana errante” (“The Wandering Whore”), and Niccolò Franco, whose political diatribes in verse employed “shocking, sexualized invective to attack their enemies.” “La Cazzaria,” he continues, “never mentions Machiavelli directly, but it is not hard to sense his influence” in the conception of the state both as a much violated woman and a “female body” of “abiding and unfathomable strength . . . which no man can completely control.”

Though Vignali is more extreme than the least inhibited of his contemporaries, and less artful and lucid than the greatest of them, he shares their rebellious impulse to subvert the sanctimony of pedants, the cruelty of the potent, the authority of patriarchs, and the prestige of virtue; to challenge the medieval dualism of mind and body; and to dose his readers with a bitter aphrodisiac grown in that fertile mire of carnal knowledge which, he believes, nourishes the blood of a secular body politic. “No matter how ugly and vulgar a thing is,” Arsiccio argues, “it is more ugly and vulgar” not to understand it. Almost three hundred years before Sade, Vignali conflates enlightenment with corruption, and, in one of the earliest and, it has to be said, most repellent test cases for free speech, he asserts a quintessential civil liberty, one that becomes more precious as it grows more fragile: the freedom to offend. ♦
