THE TRUTH ABOUT TRUTH:

All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

MIXED UP, SHOOK UP PRODUCT REVIEWS (Or, PASSEL O’FLUFFS ‘N’ McSTUFFS)


LICENSE  PLATE  IN  THE  MOVIE  'FALLING  DOWN',  THE  INSPIRATION  FOR  MY  COMMENT  SECTION  SIGN-OFFS.
.
We hardly know where to start with this one.

I said “we” even though it’s just me, because... well, haven’t you heard that you’re not supposed to start a piece o’writing with “I”? Yeah, Henry David Thoreau hadn’t heard that either... or... i-ther.

I’m tryin’ to follow “the rules” here, but I admit that I ain’t no good at it, and I axe you to forgive me transgressions.

This is going to be a mixed up, shook up, semi-stream o’unconsciousness, kinda spontaneous-like blog bit o’product reviews... which reminds me that I got Dylan singin’ next to me and a glass o’sherry within arm’s reach, and the third band I ever paid money to see play live-in-concert was Mink DeVille. That was 1977, my senior year in high school. The year before, I had seen Styx (my favorite band) open for Journey at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. My second “professional” concert (again at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium) saw Mink DeVille opening for Styx (my favorite band).

All these years later, I realize that (the millionaires) Styx stunk, and that (the poor) Mink DeVille was a far better band. Sorry, blokes, but sometimes the crap also rises (to the top). Proof of my confident heterosexuality is the fact that I can publicly admit to having loved Styx back in 1976 / ’77. But I was a mere boy then, a lad of 16. And although I went out and bought Mink DeVille’s ‘Cabretta’ album right after their concert, it would be years before I’d come to realize that they were way cooler than Styx ever was.

Mink DeVille: ‘MIXED UP, SHOOK UP GIRL’
.
If you’re already familiar with Mink DeVille, chances are it’s because of their version of the song ‘CADILLAC WALK’, which I definitely dug and do dig:

Pretty good, right? Lean, clean, and mean. But by far my favorite Mink DeVille song was always ‘SHE’S SO TOUGH’. I used to crank that “up to eleven” in my bedroom and practice my Air Guitar. I absolutely loved (and still absolutely love) the “hiccup” in the rhythm guitar line! And note the orange, black, and wee bit of green on the album cover below. How Halloweenie, eh?...


.
In my last blog bit and its comment section, I related to all y’all how a woman stood me up for ‘The Retro Theatre’ showing of the movie ‘FALLING DOWN’. The dumb blonde orange has since contacted me via Email, apologized profusely, and said that she didn’t meet me at the theatre only because she was “under the knife” – having forgotten until the last minute that she had scheduled an appointment with her doctor for ‘Breast Augmentation’ surgery.

What could I say? Naturally, I forgave her (it was the ONLY excuse for standing me up that I would have accepted) and, like any other guy would have, I then asked her, “So... what are you doing ten minutes from now?”
.
We later caught another showing of ‘Falling Down’ and laughed ourselves silly. (Not really; it’s a drama, but there are several humorous scenes.) If you’ve never seen that 1993 movie, you’ve missed some great lines like... “You forgot the briefcase!” and “I’ll give you something to fix” and “Now you’re going to die wearing that stupid little hat. How does it feel?” (It’s that “How does it feel?” that prompted me to play Dylan’s ‘Like A Rolling Stone’.)
.
.
A few scenes from ‘Falling Down’ were filmed at L.A.’s famous Venice Beach.
.
VENICE  BEACH...  YEAH,  IT'S  A  "COLORFUL"  PLACE!
 .
And so shortly after watching the movie again for the godzillionth time, I was inspired to pour a beer (that never takes much arm-twisting) and dig out my old 1992 compilation compact disc ‘SPIRIT OF VENICE, CALIFORNIA. But first, let’s yak beer:
.
Below is the first beer I ever opened with my new, unique bottle opener (a gift from a good friend), which I then poured into my Dogwood design TERVIS TUMBLER, customized with a “Wastin’ Away Again In... Margaritaville” patch. I don’t care what Nappy says, Tervis Tumblers keep my beer colder longer and I LOVE them for that!
.
GREAT  ALE,  AND  GREAT  BOTTLE  OPENER,  TOO
.
TERVIS  TUMBLERS...  THEY'RE  THE  DOG'S  BARK!
.
That’s ‘DAYTIME ALE’, a limited-time offering from the Lagunitas Brewing Company and now one of my favorite IPA’s. It’s only 4.65% alcohol, so you can drink plenty of it, and it has a very bold, unusual, up-front flavor for something I would consider to be a “light” beer. And best of all, I’ve discovered that it doesn’t have to be daytime to drink it; it goes down very well not only for breakfast, but for lunch and dinner, too! Get it while you can. Pour it in your Tervis Tumbler. Drink it down. Pour another. Drink it down. Repeat as necessary until all your troubles are gone.
.
Another brew I tried fairly recently (but before I owned this new, unique bottle opener) is Boulder Beer Company’s ‘KINDA BLUE’. It’s a “blueberry wheat beer”. Now I do NOT like “flavored” beers. As I told 4-B Old Soul (Bryan of the blog ‘A Beer For The Shower’), I only like “beer-flavored beer”. But since I do love the taste of blueberries, I figured I’d give this one one shot, since I was able to buy just a single bottle of it at a reasonable price.

First sip: “Hey, that’s not bad; kinda light and refreshing.”
Second sip: “Wow! Surprisingly decent for a fruit-flavored beer.”
Third sip: “I may have to mention this one to Brother Beer Boy Bryan.”
Fourth sip: “Ugh. I’m tired of this flavor. Never again!”

There you have it... a beer review in four sips.
However, I will say that I love the ‘Kinda Blue’ label. Notice the blueberry notes emanating from the trumpet? It’s obviously a reference to the Jazz classic ‘KIND OF BLUE’ by Miles Davis, considered by many to be the best, most influential and best-selling Jazz record ever made. I certainly dig it, but my favorite Davis album is ‘PORGY AND BESS’ by miles and miles.
.
'KIND  OF  BLUE',  THE  JAZZ  AND  THE  BEER
.
OK, so where were we? Oh, yeah... ‘SPIRIT OF VENICE, CALIFORNIA (A Collection Of Venice Street Musicians). Back in ’92, someone got the idea to record a bunch of the street musicians on Venice Beach, along with snippets of sounds like boardwalk chatter, children playing on the beach, the Pacific Ocean waves crashing near the lifeguard station at Rose Avenue, etc. The compilation includes songs representing a wide array of genres from Rock, Pop, Blues, Folk, Gospel, Reggae, Rap, and there’s even a traditional Russian song. Surprisingly, of the 13 full-length musical tracks, I genuinely like 11 of them (this compilation album goes “up to eleven”), making this, for me, much more than just a novelty souvenir reminder of my Venice Beach years. You can find the album at the great website CD BABY: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/henhouse3
.
ROCK: ‘Flim Flam’; ‘I’ve Been Searching’
POP: ‘Groovy Little Things’
BLUES: ‘Scarlet May’; ‘Don’t Come Here Running’; ‘Don’t Tell Me What To Do’
FOLK: ‘Under The Shade Of A Black Palm Tree’
GOSPEL: ‘I’m Listening’
REGGAE: ‘Eclipse My Soul’; ‘Rhythm Of The World’
RAP:Venice Beat’
RUSSIAN FOLK: ‘Gop Stop’
CHEECH AND CHONG MEET SIMON AND GARFUNKEL MEET BOBS WATSON MARLEY: ‘On The Road To Your Life’ [That was the closest classification I could come up with.]

From a second story, a post office building
Stands a friend of mine, a letter in her left hand
Looking down on the circles of town
And wondering why it’s not at her command

Some of us are shattered
Others worn and tattered
That’s the way life always seems to be
But you might find me
Somewhere in Venice
Under the shade of a black palm tree
~ Peter Demian
‘Under The Shade Of A Black Palm Tree’

I know just what he’s talking about in that song. In Venice, just two blocks East of the beach, there used to be a post office which overlooked a roundabout (or rotary, or “traffic circle”).

THE JACQUES COUSTEAU UNDERWATER MISADVENTURE THEATRE (Or, FISHING FOR ANSWERS TO OUR ECONOMIC WOES)


51-second video opening:



Some of you are old enough to remember John Denver’s hit song ‘CALYPSO’ which celebrated the life and ship of underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau, whom we used to watch on TV with such fascination.

Here is the first verse and chorus of Denver’s big hit:

To sail on a dream on a crystal clear ocean
To ride on the crest of a wild raging storm
To work in the service of life and living
In search of the answers of questions unknown
To be part of the movement and part of the growing
Part of beginning to understand

Aye, Calypso, the places you've been to
The things that you've shown us
The stories you tell
Aye, Calypso, I sing to your spirit
The men who have served you so long and so well

Following is a Jacques Cousteau quote from a 1991 interview published in the UNESCO Courier.

From Wikipedia:
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization... UNESCO is a specialized agency of the United Nations (UN).

Its purpose is to contribute to peace and security by promoting international collaboration through education, science, and culture in order to further universal respect for justice, the rule of law, and human rights along with fundamental freedom proclaimed in the UN Charter. It is the heir of the League of Nations’ International Commission on Intellectual Cooperation.

JACQUES-ASS COUSTEAU:
“Our society is turning toward more and more needless consumption. It is a vicious circle that I compare to cancer ... Should we eliminate suffering, diseases? The idea is beautiful, but perhaps not a benefit for the long term. We should not allow our dread of diseases to endanger the future of our species ... In order to stabilize world population, we need to eliminate 350,000 people a day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it’s just as bad not to say it.”

A reminder... JOHN DENVER's lyrics in ‘CALYPSO’:

To work in the service of life and living
In search of the answers of questions unknown
To be part of the movement and part of the growing
Part of beginning to understand

Uh-huh. Right. To begin with, although a few areas of the world are overpopulated for their own good, the world overall is not even remotely close to being overpopulated. In fact, watch the documentary ‘DEMOGRAPHIC WINTER’ and you’ll learn that many of the developed nations are suffering from and about to economically collapse from a severe population replacement deficit. (And that, by the way, is the real reason for Russia’s recent strident anti-homosexual stance.)

FYI, the Cousteau quote came from my copy of the 1998 book ‘YOU DON’T SAY: Sometimes Liberals Show Their True Colors’, by Fred Gielow. It’s a good book filled with a ton of valuable info. You should read it, Brothers and Sisters!
.
.
In keeping with today’s ocean theme, I want to recommend a second book to you as well...

Which one of these fish is not like the others?

Angelfish
Balloonfish
Catfish
Dogfish
Dizzygillespiefish
Frogfish
Goatfish
Hogfish
Jewfish
Kingfish
Lumpfish
Mudfish
Needlefish
Oarfish
Parrotfish
Rabbitfish
Shark

Did you answer “Shark”?

Wrong.

Dizzygillespiefish is the only one that isn’t real - I made it up.
.
.
Sharks, however, are real... and some of them walk on land with two legs, and take economic advantage of the rest of us.

Let’s cast our line out and see if an economy runs through it:

In his clever and easily-understood book on economics, ‘HOW AN ECONOMY GROWS AND WHY IT CRASHES’, Peter Schiff uses fish instead of dollars to explain sound economics as well as the opposite of sound economics (i.e., The Federal Reserve System). If you ever thought economics was too deep a subject for you to mentally hook, then you need to read Peter Schiff’s explanations, cloaked in simple, amusing parables.

It’s amazing what people can wrap their minds around when you change one thing into another... like dollars into fish and capitalists into island fishermen. Make it simple, make it fun, and people will learn deep (sea) stuffs almost despite themselves!
.
.
In his story, economist Peter Schiff names his fish characters after real politicians and money magicians (charlatans). See if you can guess who or what these “fish characters” represent in real life:

Franky Deep
Grouper Cleveland
Hughey Humpback
Ally Greenfin
Buddy Goldfish
Slippery Dickson
Cliff Cod
Finnie Mae and Fishy Mac
Piker Skiff
George W. Bass
Barry Ocuda
Carp for Carts
Nan ShallowSea
Hyperfishflation

So, how many of those did you figure out?

If you ever thought the subject of economics was “too many” for you, ‘HOW AN ECONOMY GROWS AND WHY IT CRASHES’ is the book for you. Peter Schiff Piker Skiff will ‘splain it to you, Lucy Lungfish.

A few days ago, ‘The King Of Blogs’, Arlee Bird of ‘TOSSING IT OUT’ fame Emailed me with a link to a video. I wanted to find a way to post it. Although it states the truth, it does not include a lot of verifiable facts like most of my blog bits do. Nevertheless, I thought it was a cool video... in a very blue way. Here it is, and only 5.5 minutes long:
.
The Real American Theatre Is All An Illusion!



NOTE: Up until just now - as I write these final words - I believed that I was dealing with one theme: ocean fishes (particularly sharks). But I paused long enough to check my Email before posting this (to see if I’m taking this woman to ‘The Retro Theatre’ tonight) and what I found was another link sent by Arlee Bird. I watched the video and was amused, but it was at the point where Tim Hawkins sings of the government, “They’re power-hungry and malicious; their economics are fictitious”, that I knew I would add this short, last-minute video as the coda to this blog bit.

And the moment I made that decision, my mind realized that I was dealing with a second theme and a third “theatre”. The first one, I had already nicknamed the “The Jacques Cousteau Underwater Misadventure Theatre”. The next one on my mind was ‘The Retro Theatre’ (now playing ‘Falling Down’ starring Michael Douglas). And the third one, Tim Hawkins himself named “Uncle Sam Theatre”. Hokey-Smoke and Hoo-Wee times three! Life can be so weird sometimes!

Anyway... forget John Denver! How many of you remember the 1972 Sammy Davis Jr. #1 hit song ‘The Candy Man’? It was 1972 and I was a paperboy [“I want my TWO DOLLARS!!”] and there was a man on my route who would often give me a piece of candy. (No, no, it wasn’t like THAT! Times were different then, and a nice man could innocently give the paperboy candy.) I nicknamed him “The Candy Man” after the Sammy Davis Jr. song.

Sit back now for three minutes and enjoy...

‘BATTLE OF THE BANDS’ #6 (Or, ‘ZEVON VERSUS RONSTADT’)


[‘BOTB  #6’  Is  Dedicated  To  Kimberley  At  ‘Staples’,  Store  #377  On  Peoria  Avenue  In  Phoenix,  Airheadzona.]

. 
THE  BATTLE  OF  THE  BANDS!
.
.
Shoop-Shooby –
Shooby-duh-Dooby-Doop-Dooby-Dooby-Doo-Wah –
Buh-Doo-Wah!

Yes, it’s time once again for ‘Battle Of The Bands’ (BOTB).
.
EUGENE  MARTONE  VS.  JACK  BUTLER
.
I have enough potential 'BOTB' match-ups to last me from now until ‘The Twelfth Of Never’. Until recently, I had those match-ups scribbled on paper in three different places: a pocket notebook, the back of an old employer memo, and a sheet of computer paper. On October 3rd, I decided to combine them all into one source and then to xerox the source in case I lose my original copy.

So I went to my local Staples and asked Kimberley, the young woman with the good personality behind the Copy counter, to xerox my ‘BOTB – 2013’ list. When she returned, she said to me, “I can’t help being nosey. What does ‘BOTB’ stand for? Best of the best?”
“No”, I answered. “It means, battle—”
She cut in quickly, BATTLE OF THE BANDS!!”
“Right”, I answered.

Then looking at the first match-up at the top of my list she asked, “Did ____ ___ really do a version of the song ‘________ __ ______’?!”
Understanding her surprise, I laughed and said, “Yep. Hard to believe, isn’t it?”

Kimberley and I went on to have an entertaining discussion about weird, warped, and wacky things related to music. At one point she mentioned Warren Zevon’s song ‘Excitable Boy’ and asked me if I was familiar with it. Why, of course! Agreement: ‘Excitable Boy’ is just too creepy for our tastes.

Warren Zevon? He’s the One-Hit-Wonder whose one hit, ‘Werewolves Of London’ went to #21 on Billboard’s Pop Chart in 1978. The weirdness known as ‘Werewolves Of London’ was written at L.A.’s Venice Beach. Where else? Surely you weren’t thinking “London”, were ya? 
.
I suggested to Kimberley that she should someday compare the lyrics of Warren Zevon’s original recording of his song ‘POOR, POOR, PITIFUL ME’ with the lyrics in Linda Ronstadt’s Top 40 Billboard cover version.

I already had “POOR, POOR, PITIFUL ME: Warren Zevon Versus Linda Ronstadt” on my ‘BOTB -2013’ list and figured I’d get to it eventually, but had something else in mind for #6. However, it was while having this discussion with Kimberley @ ‘Staples’ that I made the decision to make this my next ‘BOTB’ entry. My spontaneous conversation with Kimberley, combined with the fact that Linda Ronstadt has been in the news lately for announcing her decision to cease singing publicly due to her problems with Parkinson’s Disease, convinced me to bump this battle up to the top (a.k.a. "today").
.
GODZILLA  VS.  KING  KONG
.
Yes, in 1978, Linda Ronstadt took her version of Warren Zevon’s song to #31 on the Billboard chart. Zevon recorded his song in 1976 and it appeared on his self-titled ‘Warren Zevon’ LP, which would have been his debut album if not for the fact that he had previously released an album. (Funny how that works.)

Ronstadt’s version of the song appeared on her album ‘Simple Dreams’, but below is a picture of her album cover for ‘Hasten Down The Wind’ (the title of another song written by Warren Zevon), which I am posting instead for no pointicular reasons:
.
.
Lyrically, there were some expected changes considering the shift in gender viewpoints. For example:

Linda Ronstadt: Well, I met a man out in Hollywood
Warren Zevon: Well, I met a girl in West Hollywood

He/She put me through some changes, Lord
Sort of like a Waring blender.

But the REAL lyrical surprise occurs when comparing the third verses of each rendition (understand, I’m yakking “verses” here, NOT “choruses”).

Linda sings:

Well, I met a boy in the Vieux Carré
Down in Yokohama
He picked me up and he threw me down
He said, “Please don't hurt me, Mama.”

*Ahem!*

Warren saw it differently when he penned it. But first, before the infamous third verse, a little background info is in order...

The ‘Sunset Strip’ in Los Angeles is located in WEST Hollywood, not Hollywood. The ‘Sunset Strip’ is where the world famous nightclubs and concert venues were/are located. Right next to The Roxy is The Rainbow Bar, where all the visiting Rock stars like Donny Osmond John Denver Jimmy Page and Robert Plant hung out when in town for sold-out shows. Further East down The Strip was the Hyatt House Hotel (also known as “The Riot House’), where Led Zeppelin would stay and throw TV sets out of their windows into the swimming pool below. 

[For Rock ‘N’ Roll Trivia Buffs: It’s the roof of the Hyatt House Hotel where the ‘END OF TOUR: Los Angeles’ scene in the movie ‘This Is SPINAL TAP’ was filmed. That scene, by the way, includes what to me is probably the funniest line in the entire movie... “...cranking out some mediocre head-banging bullshit!” Ha!]
.
THE  RAINBOW  BAR,  JUST  TO  THE  LEFT  OF  THE  ROXY
.
THE  HYATT  HOUSE  ("THE  RIOT  HOUSE")
.
Alright, keep that stuffs in mind when you get to the Warren Zevon original. But first, Linda Ronstadt’s hit version:

Linda Ronstadt - 1977-07-Poor Poor Pitiful Me



And now Warren Zevon’s 1976 original (listen for the 3RD verse difference!)

Warren Zevon - Poor Poor Pitiful Me

DICKTATORS, CHICKTATORS, HELLFIRE TYRANTS, AND CHRISTIAN LIAR RANTS


The junkyard dog bark is back! 
The D-FensDogg snark is back!

Just when you thought order had been restored to the Blogosphere, crazy Doc Brown fixes the flux capacitor on my computer (for $150.00 worth of Valium and CRUZAN Black Strap Rum) and I’m back in bidnith.

On Thursday, July 4, 2013, I posted a blog bit titled... [Link:] OUR FOUNDING DOCUMENT – 21st CENTURY AMERICAN STYLE. What I did was to take ‘The Declaration Of Independence’ and off-the-cuff and on-the-fly reinterpret that great document for our (post)modern times and our Masters of today – primarily International Bankers and their ‘New World Order’ political and occult cronies, all supported by the mainstream media.
.
SATANIC  SYMBOL:  INVERTED  PENTAGRAM
.
That blog bit received several fine comments, one of which came on July 6TH from my McBuddy SHEBOYGANBOY SIX who wrote:

I would like you to consider which 56 people you think would sign such a document, and let me (or us) know. I suggest not limiting yourself to just contemporary times, but go back as far as you like. (Lincoln may be as far as necessary... don't know what you'll decide.) Some are obvious, but when you get past the first 20 you may find it difficult to choose one conniving, evil asshole over another.

I replied:

That's a major assignment, some serious homework, but I'll see what I can come up with. This will probably take me quite a few days, maybe close to a week, if I'm going to give it much thought.

[*Ha!-Ha! And what’s today’s date again? Well, at least we’re still in 2013, eh?*]

[...] My first thought was that I'd be going back much further than Lincoln. But then it occurred to me that maybe, since this was a take-off on 'The Declaration Of Independence', the founding document of the United States, you intended for me to limit myself to Americans when coming up with 56 signers. That changes things quite a bit.

Is that the question then? What 56 Americans do I think would sign this 'Declaration'? Or what 56 persons regardless of nationality?
.
EUROPE:  MANY  TONGUES,  ONE  VOICE

Quote:
Above "on the right is a poster produced by the European Union symbolically depicting their mission. It combines the 12 stars of the EU flag with the rebuilding of the tower of Babel, with the motto ‘Europe: Many Tongues, One Voice’. Note also that the stars are shown as inverted pentagrams, an occult symbol for Satan."

Sheboyganboy Six ~
Betcha thought I wasn’t going to follow through with this assignment, eh?

Despite the fact you never answered my question, on my own initiative I came to my own conclusion: I decided that since this is an imaginary American document, I would restrict my signers to American-born people only. (That left out some A-list individuals like Charles Darwin, John Maynard Keynes, John Kenneth Galbraith, Henry Kissinger, and John Lennon.)

Was it difficult coming up with the names of 56 signers for this “New World Order” Global Government declaration? Pshaw! A day or two after you proposed this idea, I sat down with a pen and paper and, going just off the top of my head, in 15 minutes I had TOO MANY names!

So, the difficulty of the assignment was in trying to whittle down my list, while maintaining a good cross-section of various types of elite fascists. I wanted a good representation of different careers including both genders.

The fact is, this project was too easy. I mean, theoretically, I could have posted the names from the current ‘Council on Foreign Relations’ (CFR) membership list and that alone would have given me a few thousand signers, without even delving into ‘The Trilateral Commission’, ‘The Bilderbergers’, ‘Skull And Bones’, and ‘The Club of Rome’. It was too easy. Literally, any American communist could have been included.

Again, I decided to go for a good representative list of “types” rather than, say, the MOST important or influential Totalitarians (even though many of those made my list).

Despite the fact that my imaginary ‘DECLARATION OF INTERDEPENDENCE – JULY 4, 2013’ mentions the goddess Gaia as its deity, I did not permit that to influence which names I included on my list. Sure, Al Gore would have no problem kneeling and praying to an imaginary Earth goddess, whereas communists like Bill Clinton believe in no god but the State (or themselves).

But I figured that most or all of these Fascists would be willing to PRETEND belief in ANY kind of so-called “god” so long as it advanced their own global agenda and/or benefited themselves in some personal way.

So, below is my list. I could just as satisfactorily alter it on any given day, and there are probably plenty of other names that just as easily and/or more deservedly could replace some of those I’ve included. But, at this moment, THESE are the people I FEEL like outing. I worked on a whim du jour basis.

I will add a label to each of these dastardly dudes and dudettes, and in some cases will include a URL link to a site featuring text or promoting a book that would tell you a bit more about the person in question.

Are we ready? Here is today’s list - in no particular order - of 56 signers to my imaginary DECLARATION OF INTERDEPENDENCEJULY 4th, 2013.
