Is Music Necessary? (recent essay by George Duke, who passed away last night...)

I was waiting for part 2 of this GREAT essay by George Duke on the necessity of music education...

I guess I'll have to ask him about it in the afterlife...

R.I.P. George. I'll try to get everyone to at least read your essay, if not listen to a ton of your stuff...


The Zigganator

I'm not particularly proud of it. His supporters will probably start calling him that.

Faster than an unarmed pedestrian!
More powerful than a recalcitrant prosecutor!
Able to duck the law with a single smirk!

Sometimes I wish my brain had a mute button.

What am I grateful for this morning? Hmmm...

Oh yeah...

It would be nice to have one of these in California... Last time the subject came up, we continued to be held hostage by Dianne ("Hah! Dare to primary me and I'll make sure you end up with Jon Voight!" Feinstein!

SKYRIM: "The elf was recalcitrant, but eventually snuggly..."

Some of you liked the last two, so here's part 3:


DU photoshop enthusiasts... what perfect timing!

EDIT: DU borked the link. You will have to copy/paste it.


At this particular point in US history, I can't possibly imagine anyone being interested in this...

I just don't know what to say... so...

Pickett's Rant

Today is the anniversary of Pickett's Charge, the ill-fated Confederate assault that decided the Battle of Gettysburg in favor of The United States of America.

I watched Fox News' coverage of the occasion a few minutes ago. Shemp did not mention who won the battle... at all. Fox's point-of-view was completely that of the rebels--the losers. The army that lost the American Civil War. If you didn't already know much about Gettysburg, here's what you missed on Fox:

1) Robert E. Lee! Fox mentioned his name about 30 times
2) The hardships, the starvation, the dysentery--that sapped the glorious courage and strength of the rebel army
3) The Battle of Gettysburg lost the war for the South
4) The emotional turmoil that set in when you realized that Fox News was mourning the slave-owners who tried to overthrow the United States government.

...and that's about it. You wouldn't have even found out who was President.

Of course, the Confederacy has gained a lot of ground since they stopped firing bullets and started fighting with money, lobbying, bribery, lying, stealing, and assassination.

What are you going to do today to prevent the Confederates on Wall Street from putting you to work on their retail plantation? What are you going to do today to keep your town from becoming a company-town?

McDonald's is already trying to get away with paying employees in company scrip--debit cards with high bank fees. Banks are already lobbying to tax credit unions... because controlling 93% of all the money in the country is not enough for them. That's just two things; this paragraph could go on for about 33 years.

Do you still have enough money stashed away to ignore this?

Is it time to start an Alison Grimes group?

Just sayin'

Turdle-Boy has GOT TO GO!


Just heard that the poor widdle cowards tabled the vote until 7/9.

That will (hopefully) backfire and even more protesters will show up then.

That also gives us "Independence Day" to consider... I'd love to see a show of fuerza on that increasingly ironic holiday

See McCartney on Colbert last night doing "Mr. Kite?"

Still wanna talk shit about electronic music?

I didn't think so.


EDIT: They took the video down. Sorry My statement about pooh-poohers of tech still stands, however.
