Do as I say as an old man, Not as I would have done as a young man? Rob Reiner lusts for war, death, bloodshed. What is wrong with California?

Mr Reiner’s Civil war speeches are public record on which I am so stunned I cannot comment.

People do better, as Senator Graham alluded to at a GOP 2016 debate, where [there is playful, fun] banter. President Trump raised more eyebrows and moved more attention the North Korea Kim Jong Un [sp] peace deal with his simple Elton John reference. Elton John song in common, world freedoms are breaking out every day.

They often are not as pretty as some of the haircuts that Senator Gore has sported=, especially in the 1992 fight for the Democratic nomination.

“In The Air Tonight” | Phil Collins | declassified tempo maps and video link

There are many opinions as to how fast In The Air Tonight by Phil Collins is.

These are the times I measured it.

To me, the coolest thing about the entry of the drums with a savage rawness that makes this song one that “will outlive [me],” as Phil Collins referred to himself and how the song has become more famous than *he*is.

The universality of being able to feel as though something is going to happen, especially at night, with an intensity that in the hands of most writers doesn’t translate. That is what music is for, correct? To express messages of any kind in a way humans have done far before their were any etchings on any cave walls.

But let me not drown (he’d throw me a lifevest if I was drowning, Phil would)

That sounds like it could be a bummer, but it is not!  If someone told Shakespeare that in 600 years parents would still be naming their children Romeo and Juliet [and all the other turns of the English language that dates back to and were formed by the creation and performance of his dramas], would he even have believed it?

Kanye West: Contemporary Socrates, Plato or Reagan with the Benefit of History?

When I heard this track on the day it was released, I thought to myself: there is much more to this man than just being a [colored man] from Chicago with a nice flow.

When I was a child on Chicago many restaurants were open at lunch and had bands like you hear about he Beatles in Hamburg now.   That, but simple lunch.  I remember strolling around Chicago at 4-6 years old, with all the bad memories cut out (our memories are so pink sometimes – well, mine are), and the songs in my time, in my parents’ library was essentially – Bach, Beethoven,

 

 

Beatles, Bacharach, Debussy, Ravel – as my dad was an eye surgeon [in training] at Northwestern University and the aforementioned composers set me on a path of [Pat Metheny / Lyle Mays] addiction and the conviction that with no way to explain this to myself – and this is true not only for a high percentage of not only musicians and non-musicians,  that there were certain still un-copyrightable [grove patterns]. That said, if any of us make it to heaven you know Bo Diddley is going to be there. Can you image if could have copyrighted the foundation of 1/2 of pop music?

Bo DiddleyIn that light, I think Kanye can pick up the Bo Diddly torch and with reason and mercy and ease over whining and having reason bypassed straight to slogans where Socrates would even say: I thought this would have stopped by now, by good for Mr. West.
