We Talk About:

This is the story of the night my friends & I spent backstage w/ music legend Donovan:

We shared a joint.  My friend got groped…and we learned about a future where every thing & every moment has its own scent.

(…yup, that Donovan–the ‘Mellow Yellow’ guy…)

The words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (01.15.1929)…

…with music by: dirtbike. (featuring sax by: Nate Lumbard)

I listened to ~400 hours of Dr King’s words. Whenever he was talking about Vietnam, it sounded like he was talking about Iraq/Afghanistan…I put it to some of my music…THE END.

 

 

Wrath (Latin, ira), also known as anger or “rage”, may be described as inordinate and uncontrolled feelings of hatred and anger. Anger, in its purest form, presents with self-destructiveness, violence, and hate that may provoke feuds that can go on for centuries. Anger may persist long after the person who did another a grievous wrong is dead. Feelings of anger can manifest in different ways, including impatiencerevenge, and vigilantism.

I know, I know…Why should YOU care?

Well, because maybe you like record shopping…or maybe you like stories…or maybe you like music…or maybe you like talking…or maybe you like people?????  Give it a shot, it can’t hurt…Why not turn the sound down on your (favorite?) talk show and listen to this?  It’ll be our private little version of the ‘wizard of oz/dark side of the moon thing’…just you and me, I promise…wanna clean your house to it?  I’m okay with that, too.

 

Here are some of the comments from the youtube video for ‘Supernaut’ by Black Sabbath
(Sábado Negro).
One would think I would have a lot in common with people who like the same semi-obscure song from this band, but somehow internet comment pages always seem to end up with people doing this:

I feel like the only one I kind of relate to is ‘chutoi26’. Then, they go and bash the Ramones out of nowhere (plus, the whole ‘calling yourself “chew toy” thing’ creeps me out a little).

Next is where it degrades to a hate-fest…
First of all, how does not liking this song mean you’re a man who likes having sex with other men? I’m not seeing the connection there…anybody?
(and why, of course, do people resort to gay and racial slurs so fast online–especially about things like the degree to which you like a certain song?)
Secondly, how can someone be gay AND a motherfucker?
I think I have a grasp on what those words mean…
…and it seems like the logic is falling apart on that one.

Anyway, the song is still muy bad-ass. Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, Ozzy Osbourne, Bill Ward…
Here you go (check out the rare percussion break!):

P.S. The new show is coming soon, I promise.
