I don't know about you all, I'm about to burst, seems like so much is out of sync with my own sense of right & wrong, many years ago noticed that things i saw or knew to be false where taken as gospel truth by many more people than saw my perception of the situation, and a host of other " my brain is hanging upside down" moments (great Ramones song by the by)
Also noticed that people where less and less likely to say thank you or even understand that you've done them a good deed and I'm not just talking about small kindnesses but big ass hook ups and many times over the last several years I've received the Golden "F**K YOU for helping me" I've been pretty floored by some of the people in my life who have pulled this stunt....
This constant grade school level BS is well just that and it ain't just me, I've spoken to too many Brothers and Sisters lately that have been tracking this awful trend in human relations don't know if it's our age, the environment of our times, all of the above or just my own personal myopic karma but it seems to be getting hairier and hairier at a much quicker pace than ever before.
So the whole point of this yammer is that I found some tunes that comment on these and other current issues better than i ever could done by C/Si™ dig them and get back to me there might be a quiz....
I never ever really cared about them either way but it seems like there's an even greater fascination and getting worked up about cele"brat"ies and the culture of them, yes it's been bad for a long time with this but it's reaching Everest peaks which is horrific, if you like me believe that this is yet another pivotal point in human history, no offense to the celb's out there, well maybe a little bit to a few of em', yea yea, i know the ruling elite media [Liberal or Neo Con take yer pick] wants to keep us stupid and there plying us with all this yada yada....i don't really buy that line, these media outlets are businesses which while they might have to answer to a governing body or even government sell what people want and if people didn't want it ie: no one watched it, bought it, surfed it or put up with it they'd switch gears pretty quickly. Even the so called news channels now have way to much celeb info in between their hard hitting celeb talking heads sugar coating stuff or grabbing a moment to propel themselves into the uber celeb stratosphere oi vey I think it was Pogo who said "I've met the enemy and the enemy is us" here's a slogan " Turn it Off, Tune In, Wake Up!"
Voting machines with no paper trail that can be hacked by almost anyone seems to be just a tad bit more important than who's zooming who, electronic voting without checks and balances isn't just bad for one side of the issues it's bad for all, even if the people who control the machines seem to be how do you say diametrically opposed to most i hold dear.
I wonder if the media (Web and Terrestrial) took one week off from giving a hoot about which dimwits is having a problem with their poisons (is it really our business anyway) and discuss this and the other pressing issues confronting us if we'd see and up tick in involvement or has apathy got us gripped so tightly that we can't see the forest cause of the trees...
HBO has got this documentary coming out looks like it's worth a peep, and not to kick a good thing why release this only a week away from E-Day it should be out now and shown daily oh yea one more thing on this subject IF YOU DON"T VOTE your really outta line and letting them ( whomever you perceive as them) win, also if you don't vote please don't talk politics to me at all as voting is what can effect change (if the booths ain't rigged, and a host of other dishonest unjust unethical behavior, my mom said we should all just wear Blue or Red hats and the satellites will tell us who's won..) I'm hip to the fact that people can be manipulated and votes bought and Joe Kennedy's famous quote about buying a landslide..... however this electronic boondoggle (no paper trail what evil genius thought that one up?) by passes a whole lot of people issues and takes the sport out of any vote regardless of which side of any issue you happen to be on...
Alright I'll shut up for a bit and there much better articulations and even great dialog going on about this stuff I'm spewing about here and I could go on and on but the ranting of an old man just ain't that sexy knowwhati'msaying
love my Apple MPFree™(C/Si™) player but this was too good not to share with ya and I've been having some fun with this here spot and just in case here's the link again to some really "dynamite" music C/Si™ thinking peoples blues
Well Thanks for reading the rant don't know what got over me
this place is usually about Music and odd bits of ephemera and still is i'm not going all ranty on ya's But feel more than ever that now is the time
for all of us to get involved in making this realm work, whatever your
leanings get up off the couch chair and do some good, the distractions will still be
there when you get back, and you might find that the sweet person you met while doing something for others is more entertaining than lonley girl15 (yawn) or whatever.....
A huge tip of the hat and Thank You to those who endeavor the Garbage Collectors the Butchers the Plumbers the Mechanics
the Post People the Hospital Workers, Cops, Fire Peoples, Teachers, Cabbies, EMS Crews, Cable Installers, Yardworkers,Secretaries, The people who Cleaning the streets, even the snotty pricks who work at Fourbucks and music stores, the folks at the ticket office....Hard working under paid rarely appreciated and sometime ridiculed People working the line and
walking the line everyday so that we can do the fun stuff these are celebraties to
me and most are much more kind & interesting or would be if they weren't made to feel like less than by our times which seem to worship materail and fame over what just might really matter in the end.
To all of you who line up to buy $300 sneakers or even $500 lp's (it's a scam, sell em' now while ya can and buy some land...)
Can we Please Please respect each other as it is the most important aspect of any activity casual, political, social business whatever and there seems to be so little of it..
we don't have to agree but we don't have to act like idiots while we figure out a way to move forward into the future instead of taking all these big leaps backwards either, and name calling and mud slinging is a waste of time. solutions and questions and dialog is where i dance where do you dance.......
