George Lucas just sold his LucasFilms empire to Disney. 
Disney, in return, says they'll be adding a 7th movie to the Star Wars double trilogy. 
Perplexing, I know. But while you are thinking about that possibility, check this out. 
               Could this be one of their new promo adds for the upcoming film?

The Black Rock Congress


Author and songwriter Jeffrey Othello (Author of The SOUL OF ROCK'N ROLL: History of African Americans in Rock Music) felt that the next generation of Ethnic Rockers needed a Positive and Professional Base to learn about the music/entertainment business.

His hope is that THE BLACK ROCK CONGRESS will grow into a community of Artists who will continually share their experience, ideas and wisdom world wide.

Self Service Man



Your just a self service man with nothing to gain
But satisfaction as you dish out your pain
In a direction that will hurt someone else
So you can turn and run away from your self

Hard times come too easy
Thin line starts to fade
All the lies are so deceiving
As they try to push the truth away

Some have tried to give fair warning
And some have tried to heal the pain
But some will only look for others
To hold accountable for all the blame

Your just a self service man with nothing to gain
But satisfaction as you dish out your pain
In a direction that will hurt someone else
So you can turn and run away from your self

You raise your opinion
Just to bring people down
Can't take the competition
Unless you're standing on the highest ground

Some have tried to give fair warning
And some have tried to heal the pain
But some will only look for others
To hold accountable for all the blame

Your just a self service man with nothing to gain
But satisfaction as you dish out your pain
In a direction that will hurt someone else
So you can turn and run away from your self

Bad Bad Man Award for March 2012: Rush Limbaugh

This week's Bad Bad Man Award goes to the big, fat, racist, drug-addicted, lying, hypo-critical idiot himself:
Rush Limbaugh.
Or Rush Limpbowells, as I would prefer.

It has been way too long that we the people of the United States of America have had to listen to his chauvinistic pedantic and condescending attitude, squealing like a stuck pig on our national radio stations. It really is a testament to our tolerance as a people that we have honored our freedom of speech amendment for this long, considering the ineptitude of this loquacious backwards thinking butt-tard. And I may add that it is nobody's fault, really, that such a man could be so insecure about his own perverted weakness, that he would need to pop pills for endurance. Nobody's fault except Rush, that is.

Did I say pills?

Rush Limpbowell's latest scandal revolves around the continuing rhetoric and paranoia about birth control pills, so vehemently expressed by the majority of the GOP party. Now, of all the issues in the world I can think of that involve the shallow concerns of a helltarded glob of misery, I would think that pills would be the last. Because...if anyone should be the authority on any type of pill that is prescribed by a doctor (or not), I'm thinking Rush Limpbowell's name would not, could not and should not have ever EVER been brought up. Because after his famous Oxycontin episode (the drug now synonymous to Rush Limbaugh's name) I would think he'd have just kept his big greasy pork lips shut. But nooooo. Not Rush Limpbowells.
He can't shut up. It's impossible. He speaks from his bowells. And they are limp. And greasy.

For one, he has a shit load of fans who just loooooove him. And since the election of Obama, they have all been up in arm's fat over this black president thing, and the "state of our nation" and all that ridiculous racist paranoid bullshit. And maybe it's because they are all so very very afraid that one day...in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA...white people will become...
(you may wanna sit down for this)
The minority.
GASP!
And OH man, can you imagine what's gonna happen on that fine day? Every. Single. Civil rights amendment issue that ever was will be there for the skewering by the brand new minority:
the almighty white people. And I don't mean good decent white people. Most of them don't even see it as an issue because of their decency and common sense. I am specifically talking about the ones who are racist, evil, ignorant, sexist and dumb as a door nail. The ones who were, in fact, the very reason that civil rights had to be made into an issue in the first place. Yep, those fuckers. And they are all gathering momentum with the help of the tea baggers, the right wing GOP'ers, the neo nazis and ass tards like Rush Limpbowells. And in their little pee sized brains they have made arrangements with their higher power above to make this a holy crusade. (I knoooow. It's pretty fucking redonkulous, the consistency of these types.) And they breed like wild Jackal-Rabbits in the night, making it a holy law of the sacred cross to never use birth control. They are so far into their insanity that they are just gonna come out and say that rape should now be accepted as another way to make more pretarded babies. (Yup, I said pretarded. I don't want to insult the mentally disabled by comparing them to these helltards, such as Rush Limpbowells). Having rape babies means they have a better chance of converting brand new humans into Rush Limpbowell types, so that the almighty (racist) white people won't go extinct. Yes, that is what they are afraid of now. They fear equality. Still. (I knoooow) Which is the root of their insecurity. This insecurity starts when they are young. It's taught to them when they are little babies. Isn't that fascinating?

But it's no mystery that a lot of them grow up
to be exactly like Rush Limpbowells:
A Bad Bad Man.

The ballad of: Frothy The No-Man

Rick Santorum Sex Change Rumor: Was he a Hermaphrodite?


There is a rumor that just started that Senator Rick Santorum had a sex change. I wonder if that's true. New gossip is saying that he use to be a hermaphrodite and decided to go with one set of genitalia, finally. I just wonder if there is any confirmation that this information is true. Or if it is just some sort of political scandal and or propaganda add by Romney or Gingrich. And does it mean he will finally be a woman? And how many women will be upset by this news?

Anyone know?

Rick Santorum: Frothy The No Man

I may be right or wrong but I think
Frothy the No Man says NO to:


gambling
contraception
gutter politics
common sense
freedom of rational thought
premarital sex
Obama's creation of 240 million jobs
woman's rights
evolution and the science that explains it
fossils
pornography
Romney
Obama
Gingrich
African/Americans
Mexicans/Americans
Chinese/Americans
Japanese/Americans
Arab/Americans
Irish/Americans
French/Americans
German/Americans
Australian/Americans
American people who think for a living
women's opinions
any religion not christian
green energy
electricity
houses/apts
craigslist
kangaroos
professional sports
firemen
the US Military
musicians
music
poetry
LGBT/Americans
foreigners
global climate change
puppies
kittens
voting
old people
young people

I'm sure the list goes on and on.
And by using this Santorum based process of elimination, all that is left as a result...
is a frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter.

And that is not very American. Not at all.
Not even to decent American Christians.

Google Santorum for Frothy Mixture of Lube and Fecal Matter results


I really can't add anything to this fact. Because it is simply a fact. The top result search for google searching Santorum, as in Rick Santorum, the GOP presidential candidate is this:


santorum (san-TOR-um) n.

1. The frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter

that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex.


Google never lies.


All I can really say is that back in 2003 during a 6 month trip to England, I remember having to explain our country's reasons for electing GW Bush over and over. That in itself was a mind bending and shameful task. But, if Rick Santorum gets elected as our Prez, I will have no other choice but to say that our right wing republicans are REALLY into some dirty messy anal sex. Google it yourself!

I'm not sure what the reaction will be from people abroad, or how many people approve a president of the USA with these moral standards, but I can be certain of one thing: Right-wing Christian virginity shall always remain in tact as long as it is addressed with Santorum decorum. I can only assume a sponsorship from the Depends diaper company is behind his push for election.

Laws And Sausage - The Uptones of The United States Of America



Winston Churchill said,
"THOSE WHO LIKE LAWS AND SAUSAGE SHOULD NEVER WATCH EITHER BEING MADE."

And most of us agree. The process in which laws (and sausage) are made is a horrible and disgusting, step by step process. In ordinary day to day peace we may find disagreements. Disagreements can turn into to arguments. Arguments turn into fights. Fights lead to political upheavals. Political upheavals turn into war. The winner of wars make new laws to reestablish peace. A bizarre cycle. It is a strange hoola hooping of history, I say. But that isn't the worst of it. Nay. The greed that motivates politics is the worst of it. The reasons politicians go to war are usually not that complicated. It's always for money and the power to control the money. The method is this type of madness. And it destroys everything in its path.

With that being said, I would like to lighten the subject matter.

My good friend Eric Din from The Uptones has addressed this topic with one of my favorite methods of topic addressing. With a song. A catchy song, too. An amazingly well written and very poetic reprise of Churchill's quote. A tune called Laws and Sausage. This tune has a habit of getting stuck on replay in my brain for hours. I had so much fun with The Uptones when we recorded this. I think this song should be attached to our national anthem, actually. A mandatory musical suffix, if you will.

Anyway...

A brilliant woman named Lisa McElroy took The Uptones' "Laws and Sausage" song and illustrated it most poetically with archival footage, says Eric on his new facebook page called Laws and Sausage. Check it out if you want to get your rant on. I will see you there if you do. And now...

Too Strong

Looking back on American history, I have to stop and realize how far we have come. Our definition of civilization weighs heavily on the results we get from our struggles. All Americans are not going to see eye to eye on this, either.

On one side, there are the Americans who have always believed that the white race is superior to all races. Their historical demonstration of this psychotic philosophy has been proven wrong over and over again by our own United States constitution.
On the other side, are the people who continue to fight for freedom and civil rights. The people who have made adjustments and amendments to the constitution in order for it to stand for all people. We the people.

This song is about 3 of those law changes.
The *colored water fountain* and the *whites only water fountain* law change is depicted in the first verse.
The *women's right to vote* change is told in the 2nd verse.
And the last verse is about the change in marriage equality. Depicting an issue regarding gays and their right to marry in the United States. The recent defeat of the Prop 8 attempt by the right wing conservatives. The new breed of American haters that my generation must deal with.

I know they will never change their tired ways and that is sad and crazy. But then neither will we...and we get stronger and stronger each and every day...

Susan G. Komen: Sleeping With The Enemy (song)


The Susan G. Komen For The Cure foundation has been in the spotlight of the news for the last couple of weeks. Initially pulling funds from Planned Parenthood, and then after a viral attack and pressure from thousands on the web, reversing that decision immediately. It was surprising to a lot of people. A shock, really. It also put Planned Parenthood in the limelight during these critical decision making moments of the GOP presidential race. The GOP has been attacking Planned Parenthood for years over the abortion-rights issue. Their campaign to take this decision and choice away from women is no secret. The Susan G. Komen foundation must have cracked under pressure from anti-abortion groups and caved in to their demands. Only to reverse that decision later:

“We want to apologize to the American public for recent decisions that cast doubt upon our commitment to our mission of saving women’s lives,” the Komen foundation announced in a statement Friday morning.

Now, usually when something like this happens on this scale, the GOP remains firm in their decisions. They don't allow emotions to alter their decision making in business and especially politics. Because the GOP is dominated by the men who don't really react to anything emotionally. Because they are focused on money, only.

And that is why this case is so unique to me. Because the one thing the GOP didn't anticipate was the fact that, yes, women do react emotionally. And in this particular case it WAS a business decision effected by an emotional reaction. Because this business decision effects the lives of women in the United States Of America. Which should warrant an emotional reaction to every man who has a female relative. Why shouldn't it?

And for the first time in a long time, I see before me the one crucial element in balancing out the power struggle in America. Because there have been millions of women who've caved into the rhetoric of men and given up their personal freedom and choices. There are too many women who do not feel safe because they fear this rhetoric. This rhetoric of fear which has been lavishly garnered by men in search of power and wealth. And backed by brutal physical and unwarranted abuse sold as punishment. But now, in this new age of technology, women can read and feel the support of millions via the internet in regards to their issues. Our issues. Women are speaking out with more confidence than we have ever seen. And getting results.

Because it simply makes sense. As if your own grandmother was telling you. And more and more, women like this are breaking free from the greedy, selfish, power thirsty businessmen who have been oppressing women longer than any other group of people in the history of mankind...

To all the fathers, brothers, sons, uncles...
This message has to be shared and spread in anyway possible. Any format. Any version.
This song is my version of this message...

Sideways by The Musashi Trio



The ability to compromise the changes of our own demise
Tucked inside and lost behind the darkness we've just enterprised for funds
Just for monetary funds
Motivated everyday to lose and find another way
Until the path illuminates the vision that might blind you like the sun
It might blind you like the sun

Enlightenment strikes like thunder to the mind
Reeling back you open up your eyes
Shed another layer to be pleasantly surprised as the world goes SIDEWAYS or a little while

The constant change of everything has written one more song to sing
Voices ring in harmony with those who don't take more than what they need
Don't take more than what they need

Enlightenment strikes like thunder to the mind
Reeling back you open up your eyes
Shed another layer to be pleasantly surprised as the world goes SIDEWAYS or a little while

Motivated everyday to lose and find another way
Until the path illuminates the vision that might blind you like the sun
It might blind you like the sun

Enlightenment strikes like thunder to the mind
Reeling back you open up your eyes
Shed another layer to be pleasantly surprised as the world goes SIDEWAYS or a little while

Big Brother



<
Big brother has a name and his name is url
(aka) H double T P colon with 2 slashes, Girl
You know his plan and execution of the big take over
Ballin’ dollars on the web like an arachnid rover

Sittin’ trapped like a bug inside a virus on line
My legs have atrophied and petrified right under my spine
And my vocabulary’s changin’ and my memory, too
Do you remember browsin’ links at your dads barbeque?

I try to talk to my friends they put their book in my face
I’m sending letters of affection to the stars in my space
Yeah I’m attached to my server like the phone in your head
We used to talk about clothes now we discuss them on threads

You leave the house in your pajamas wearin’ Ugs and no socks
You can’t deny it I just read it in your friends comment box
You say you have an education but I say LOL
You got no punctuation skills and you’re too lazy to spell

Oh B T W I’m guessing that your B double F
Has got a photograph of you photographing your self
And so I’m ROTFLMAO clutching my side
As you continue texting messages to friends while you drive


Big Brother is growing so big bright and blue
And his huge electric globe has been caressed by you
And if you think it’s hard enough to get connections through
Then think about the link he wants to send to you

Wild Wild Mess (short version)




Yeah I'm thinking 'bout a girl I love
She's like the sun and the stars above
When I sleep it's what I'm dreamin' of
As I wake up to a world that's tryin'
So hard to keep the hope from dyin'
Every woman's got an endless smile
To help guide another full grown child

Oh I'm talkin' 'bout a girl I know
She really knows how to love me so
She'll remind me what I'm living for
As I wake up to a world that's tryin'
So hard to keep the hope from dyin'
Every woman's got an endless smile
To help guide another full grown child

Sometimes I'm living in a fantasy
That my woman seems to give to me
Helps to deal with reality
As I wake up to a world that's tryin'
So hard to keep the hope from dyin'
Every woman's got an endless smile
To help guide another full grown child

In this wild wild mess
Such a wild wild mess we're living in
It's a wild wild mess
We got a wild wild mess to straighten out and never give in
