2010 On The Good Foot With Maceo Parker

Here we are in the last week of the first decade of the millennium. We are all looking back and reflecting on things that happened for what ever reasons they did. Some of us are happy. Some us are forlorn. Some of us are apathetic. And some of us are not forgetting what the republican administration actually did to the whole world. And that makes me want to forge a future so bright and amazing that they will never be able to do THAT again. And the only way I have ever known how to do this is with music. The remedy continuum.

So now I am hell bent about bringing music back to the foreground with relentless drive and ambition. It is the only way I know how. So count me in! We are looking at a brand new decade approaching. What better time to inhale a deep breath and begin cultivating with every exhale. Excuse me for having such optimistic relevance, but that is what music does to my soul. It empowers me to do the impossible. Jimi Hendrix called it the power of soul. And that's what it's going to take to get what I want. And those that know me, know what it is that I want and who I want in my life...

With that I will turn you over to Maceo Parker. This song somehow reminds me of the years 2000 to 2008. I have to remember to keep my feet from out of the way of bad politics and economic trampling. Maybe even try and reteach some of these greedy politicians of all parties with the music. Some of them, at least.
This is a good year for self redemption. The best way to show others the path is to walk down it.

“Elephant’s Foot” by Maceo Parker

Lightnin' Hopkins "Happy New Year"'s about to be the next decade. Thank god for that. Since 2000, America has been a little tense, if you know what I mean. That administration was not very fun. The first decade of the 21st century was , pretty much owned by them.
But that was then and soon we will start a new. A perfect time to let go and move forward.
By the middle of 2010, I should be alright and the last decade will have been worth wading through. Sometimes the pains of life are overshadowed by the future that is so bright.

Meanwhile I need to revel in the blues with some Lightnin' Hopkins...

Why I Like Pink, Besides How Hot She Is...

RESPECT to Pink. She manages to say the things that should be said from a celebrity's mouth with out losing basic common sense. Whenever Pink is quoted, I usually agree with her statements as if I were listening to her at a local pub or something. She just doesn't seem that big headed about herself. A very good role model, so far, for other artists, I think...maybe Britney should listen to her...Here's that article:

Pink 'Blasts Britney For Miming'

Pink is not impressed by Britney Spears when the singer performs - because she hates the fact the 'Womanizer' star mimes to her hits.

The 'So What' singer said: "I'm not taking anything away from Britney because I really like her a lot, but I would never go to a show where the person was lip-synching." (continue reading)

Golf Star Tiger Woods Reputation Uncaged

Well, it seems you can't have it all. Even if you have a billion dollars. And to me, that's having most of all of it. But in lieu of this scandal, I admit that if you are going to live one it to the fullest. I think as Tiger Woods get's older his memory will split into two categories. One for the life he lived below his belt...and for the one above.
His 22 apologies ought to sort things out, eh?

Anyway, out of all the things said so far from his "affair committee," these stand out in my mind the most:

Tiger mother-in-law rushes back to house

Tiger Woods’ stricken mother-in-law, Barbro Holmberg, rushed to the hospital after collapsing yesterday, was treated and quickly rushed back to Woods’ home today, sources reported. “I hate missing any of this fun,” she texted a nurse she had met at the hospital.

Tiger Woods’ gardener collapses, rushed to hospital

An unknown woman, believed to be a sex slave of Tiger Woods’, called 911 today and frantically pleaded for an ambulance to be sent to the golf superstar’s residence. “Tony the gardener is down!” she could be heard saying on police tapes while sobbing. “He can’t take the stress anymore.”

Have a grrrrreat weekend!

"67" Part 2

This version has me on guitar playing along with the same loop as previous video posted.
I must admit I have way more fun on the guitar...

Jimi Hendrix would have been 67 years old on November 27th 2009
