Is it too late to talk about my news years eve?

In rare moments in life, when torrential rain drenches the depths of your soul then you find a gold mine to hide from the rain. You get dry then find out it was fools gold. This is how my new years eve went. Well…not really.

A song with no music

I have no idea on type of music I could put to this? Maybe rag time?

50 years ago this song was dropped.

Which way you are you going Billy? Poppy Family. This was Canadian pop group. They started a new genre called: Soft rock. It was love song with an anti-war message. That sold a lot of records back then. I didn’t like it much. If you so incline, read all about it.

The concert I didn't go to in 1969

During my high school days, I tried to bum a ride to concerts because I didn’t have a car. One day my friend offered me a ticket to see Led Zeppelin in Orange Country California. I told him I get back to him in a day. I never heard A Led Zeppelin song. I knew this band came from the ruins of the Yardbirds. I bought their 45 single on Atlantic Records: A whole lotta of Lovin. The flip side was: She just a Woman. I slapped the Vinyl donut on my Sears record player and…and…nothing happened. I was bored as student attending a lecture on the economy in Finland. There were some factors in my dislike for this song. Robert Plants voice. It was really grating like fingernails on a chalkboard. His voice sounded like a chicken getting chocked to death. There were too excessive echo-plex sound effects during the guitar break. I called my buddy that night and told him: Thanks, but no thanks.
One Christmas somebody bought me Physical Graffiti: Zeppelins double album. I listened to it once, then twice and it sat on my shelf for 2 decades.
This band was the official band for long hair white guys in California in the 70’s and 80’s. Critics labeled them Heavy Metal. Not! They were commercial limp hard rock. The Canadian band “Rush” was called Heavy Metal! Misnomer! They were Libertarian whip power pop. Hell! I remember when some music award show put Jethro Tull in a Heavy Metal category. They called the best metal band that year.
I’m glad I didn’t go to that gig.

Profile in cowardice.

Profile in cowardice. Back in the 60’s & 70’s, conservatives use to whine about permissive parents and lenient judges who let guilty criminals go free. Now the conservatives are treating Trump like he is a misunderstood man. The Republicans act like serial killer mother moms. Oh! My poor baby isn’t a bad boy! They treat his PROVEN crime like it is some type of misdemeanor like jay walking. Well…. extortion is not a peccadillo. Read my commentary on my Blog.

I am a Truck

I Am a Truck: 1960. Like most American kids, some of us grew up with Children Songs. Children songs rarely change. They are upbeat, happy-go-lucky tunes. Last years well-known kid song “Baby Shark” was not only an annoying song to adults but also an anthem to fans of the Washington Nationals baseball team. Don’t ask. This is a song from my childhood. The record laid around our house for 10 years.
