‘This Is America’ …. “🎼🎼 Childish Gambino …. Official Video …. What a Message 🎼🎼 …. “!!

THIS IS AMERICA

Quite a strong message within this music video.

Indeed, have to watch it more than once! In a blunt manner, not sparing any punches, Donald Glover presents the true and crude reality of America.

The title is right on target:

This IS America!

Be forewarned. Some content may be offensive to some who may shy away from the sad reality.

The video speaks for itself.

RedLineBOn the latest Saturday Night Live, Childish Gambino – the musical pseudonym for actor and Atlanta creator Donald Glover – released “This Is America,” a searing social critique of pop culture and the experience of being black in America today.

~DONALD GLOVER~

The actor, who has been riding high these days with both his series “Atlanta” and his role as young Lando Calrissian in the forthcoming “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” both hosted “Saturday Night Live” and was the musical guest as his rap/R&B alter ego, ‘Childish Gambino‘.
Glover as Gambino won a Grammy this year for best traditional R&B performance for his song “Redbone” and premiered two new songs on “SNL,” titled “Saturday” and “This Is America.”

Here’s what you need to know about the music video that has many hailing Glover/Gambino as a genius:
You will need to watch it more than once
Directed by “Atlanta” director Hiro Murai, the video is pretty surreal and packed full of messages.
It’s expansive and filmed in a warehouse, which allows for a lot of action.
As much as your eye will be drawn to Glover as a shirtless Gambino, pay close attention also to what is happening in the background.

~It takes on gun violence in America~
Murders occur, but the guns are treated more delicately than human lives in the video — a strong statement given the current debate over gun control.
The imagery also has sparked conversation about several other themes, including police brutality, social media habits and what people are really paying attention to in the United States.
“The fact that Childish Gambino’s ‘This is America‘ tackles police brutality, gun violence, media misdirection, and the use of African Americans as a brand shield, all while dancing in Jim Crow-style caricature, shows a transcendence or mere performance and demands attention,” one person tweeted.

“As it appears in … full read/full credit”

‘Nowhere Man’ …. “🎼🤨🎼 M’gawd …. As if Written Just for HIM …. 🎼🤨🎼 …. “!!


Nowhere

~NOWHERE MAN~

THE BEATLES

I was a young teenager in Puerto Rico when The Beatles came to America in 1964. Needless to say I was totally hooked on their music.

Their music gave me sense of belonging. Their music represented me and my generation.

To this day, I enjoy, respect and follow The Beatles’ music.

I was surprised when I found this ‘meme’, listened to the lyrics and realized how ‘prophetic’ the words were!

Nowhere Man” is a song by The Beatles, from their album Rubber Soul.

The song was written by John Lennon (credited to Lennon – McCartney).

It was recorded on 21 and 22 October 1965.

Nowhere Man” is among the very first Beatles’ songs to be entirely unrelated to romance or love and marks a notable instance of Lennon’s philosophically-oriented songwriting.

~NOWHERE MAN LYRICS~

He’s a real nowhere man
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Doesn’t have a point of view
Knows not where he’s going to
Isn’t he a bit like you and me?
Nowhere man please listen
You don’t know what you’re missing
Nowhere man, The world is at your command
He’s as blind as he can be
Just sees what he wants to see
Nowhere man, can you see me at all
Nowhere man don’t worry
Take your time, don’t hurry
Leave it all till somebody else
Lends you a hand
Ah, la, la, la, la …
Doesn’t have a point of view
Knows not where he’s going to
Isn’t he a bit like you and me?
Nowhere man please listen
You don’t know what you’re missing
Nowhere man, The world is at your command
Ah, la, la, la, la
He’s a real nowhere man
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody

Emma González …. “🙏🏽 March for Our Lives …. Eloquent, Stirring Speech …. What a Strong Message! 🙏🏽 …. “!!


~~March 25, 2018~~ 

… ‘and the children shall lead’ … 

WOULD NEVER

Ever since Valentine’s Day 2018, the day the Parkland, Florida mass shooting happened, this phrase has become ingrained in my mind.

These teenagers are taking over this sad American reality.

Like Emma, there are plenty others. There are those we know already by name who have been thrust into adulthood too soon. They have taken their role as serious as the reality is.

They are claiming their future as they should.

Here’s one of the many examples seen on March 24, 2018 …

MARCH FOR OUR LIVES

YET ANOTHER ‘HALLELUJAH’ COVER

CHILL FACTOR

Music for the Soul

As I’ve said before, for some unknown reason, covers of this song keep ‘popping up’.

My tattoo artist, Stacy, showed this cover to me three days ago.

This song soothes my raw feelings.

It calms me, it centers me.

In the days after another mass shooting in Florida, this song comes to mind.

This song has attained a new meaning in my personal musical library.

It reminds me of so much …

Jeffrey Scott Buckley (November 17, 1966 – May 29, 1997), raised as Scott Moorhead, was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. After a decade as a session guitarist in Los Angeles, Buckley amassed a following in the early 1990’s by playing cover songs at venues in Manhattan’s East Village, such as Sin-é, gradually focusing more on his own material.

In 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine listed him at number 39 on their list of greatest singers of all time. In 1997, Buckley moved to Memphis, Tennessee, to resume work on the album, to be titled My Sweetheart the Drunk, recording many four-track demos while also playing weekly solo shows at a local venue.

On May 29, 1997, while awaiting the arrival of his band from New York, he drowned during a spontaneous evening swim, fully clothed, in the Mississippi River when he was caught in the wake of a passing boat; his body was found on June 4.

Jeff Buckley

Well I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
Well it goes like this:
The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
She tied you to her kitchen chair
And she broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah …

Ellen DeGeneres is Celebrating her 60th Birthday …. “🎁 Michelle Obama Visits the Set …. 🎁 …. Memories and Advice …. “!!

MICHELLE OBAMA CELEBRATES WITH ELLEN DEGENERES

JUST BEING HUMAN

Two of my favorite people in the world, celebrating together, reminiscing and plainly enjoying each other.

Refreshing to see, soothing to the soul and celebrating with both of them.

That’s how it felt for me as I watched yesterday.

Former first lady Michelle Obama offered a passionate appeal for empathy during her first televised interview since leaving the White House a year ago.
Speaking to Ellen DeGeneres, who told the wife of President Barack Obama that she felt frightened after a year of political turmoil, Michelle Obama encouraged anxious Americans to tune out the noise.
And she offered a glimpse into her post-White House life, one she said is more normal than some people might expect.

“We have to be an open-hearted nation and that’s who we are. And that’s the truth of who we are. We can’t lose sight of that. So, let’s just keep living our lives like that every single day and forget what they’re saying in Washington,” the former first lady said in the interview, which airs this week.

“We know who we are and I know who this country is,” she said.

It was a familiar entreaty from one of the most popular national figures in the country. But it came after a period of relative quiet from both her and the former president. Both have been at work on memoirs and have spent the past year traveling and speaking to groups.

THE GOOD OLD DAYS

~VERY SERIOUS TOPICS~

“Laughter is the best medicine.”

Thanks for keeping us kinda sane with these videos during this endless fuckery that it is Drumpf.

RANDY RANDY RANDY!!

I love you so much. I started to seriously think that the craziness of “now” was just cuz I’m older and paying attention to politics a bit more but you called it out perfectly regarding “Monica’s Stain”.

I thought of that recently saying “The GOP impeached Clinton for a Blow Job which didn’t endanger the country like these people!!”

Anyway – thanks for bringing humor and wit – love you!!

At times as serious as these, humor always lightens up the situation, even though momentarily.

These are very serious topics.

Humor is the best way to get through this in spite of the seriousness of it all.

Once again Randy Rainbow provides much of it.

PENCE COSTLY, SEE THROUGH, SLEAZY POLITICAL STUNT

AMERICAN NATIONAL PAST TIME

Football is a family of team sports that involve, to varying degrees, kicking a ball with the foot to score a goal. Unqualified, the word football is understood to refer to whichever form of football is the most popular in the regional context in which the word appears.

~Wikipedia~

BLine

I don’t know anything about football. It really doesn’t impress me much.

There’s a bunch of tough guys, placing hands up a player’s behind, shouting numbers, running into each other ending up on a heap of male muscle, increased testosterone and frequent stops.

The only interesting thing nowadays is the #TakeAKnee protest. 

By now, all fans and non-fans know about Pence’s costly, fake trip to Indiana. The cost of this charade has been calculated.

Nothing much!

HortyRex©

BLineP1BLine

It seems like we’ll never know exactly how much it cost taxpayers to have Mike Pence abruptly leave a football game Sunday between the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers.

But conservative estimates say it was at least $200,000 – and that’s for the air travel alone.

CNN did a back-of-the-envelope calculation and figured the flight from Las Vegas (where Pence attended a memorial service for the victims of the mass shooting) to Indianapolis and then to Los Angeles for a previously scheduled political event cost at least $242,500. The cost of a flight straight from Las Vegas to Los Angeles would have been around $45,000.
