audio: flames from trane 1965

Posted in audio, jazz music with tags , , on September 25, 2010 by Word-Drum

Close your eyes and hold on. Something got into Trane in 1965. Where ever he flew, Elvin was there with him.

The tempo is the speed of light. The feeling is a little mad, like Vincent van Gogh, yet the music’s brilliance burns like the sun. (It’s a live recording so adjust your ears accordingly.)

This ain’t ‘Smooth Jazz.’ This is as hard as it gets.

I put lyrics to Coltrane’s urgent repetitive riff: “We Don’t Like This Government!” Do you feel me?!

One of the most amazing political stories of the last year is how hard John McCain fought to keep his seat in the Senate.

Arizonians were amazed at the media blitz of nasty spots, not just negative advertising. Herman Goering would be proud of the way McCain brought down J.D. Hayworth. So would the National Wrestling Alliance.

We are all thinking why didn’t he fight like that for the Presidency?

Now I have to go to the polls in November thinking “He’s a war hero. He’s a war hero…the commies tortured him for five and half years…he was Jimmy Cagney…a tough guy…war hero…”

But he did say the commies broke him. Even though he never gave in to their demands.

Will he go back to giving into the endless demands of the American Left?

He might throw in with the new conservative movement. It wouldn’t hurt to have an old soldier in the Senate. The endless battles in Washington could be made irrelevant by larger issues of the economy and war. Others can deal with the former but the later is McCain territory. I would prefer a fresh crop of conservatives including some with combat experience in the Global War On Terror, but Big John must see where we are now as a nation. It’s do or die time.

Do you get Food Stamps, yet you’re overweight? Did your girl-friend throw you out leaving you homeless? Did you vote for Obama?

Do you call yourself a jazz-musician yet you live where people prefer other kinds of music? Did you think you were some-kind-of genius but you couldn’t convince enough people to agree with you?

Do you feel out of place at a Tea Party? Republicans think you are a pan-handler. You show up to say a prayer at Church or Synagogue and they think you’re a terrorist.

“Do you hate people?

I don’t hate them…I just feel better when they’re not around.”

— Charles Bukowski

You should join LFF(Losers For Freedom). We are the ones you’ve been waiting for.

We will pick up the stragglers and also help clear the way for the coming Conservative Revolution. In doing so we shall redeem ourselves for our past sins.

We might continue to sin, but our hearts will be with the those on the straight and narrow.

It’s like being a Democrat, except we’ll be on God’s side.

Word-Drum News Headlines:

                              Bar Explodes Killing 2

The victims were Father Finnegan and Rabbi Rosenberg. This time a bar went into a Priest and a Rabbi.

————————————————————————————-

                              Poultry Heist

“I had to ask him why the chicken crossed the road.” said Melvin Moorehouse who witnessed the crime. “The thief offered the birds some feed and tried to lead them away from the truck. But one of them ran across the street. He told me he loved that chicken, that’s why he crossed the road. I think he loved him too hard.”

————————————————————————————–

Why did Barack and Michelle Obama cross the road?…

To get away from the White House.

Why didn’t they cross the road?

BAAAAACKKK! There was a huge Tea Party going on across from the White House.

—————————————————————————————-

A Priest, a Rabbi, and a chicken cross the road…and go into a bar.

“Welcome Rabbi. Welcome Father.” says the bartender.

”Get out of here, Chicken. I told you to go across the street to The Colonel’s if you want a drink.”

(OK, so that answers why the chicken crossed the road…)

“What would you like, Gentlemen?”

“Whiskey all around, my friend.” says the Priest.

“We are going to a Tea Party so we will just need a small glass of bolstering spirit.”

“Was that chicken going too?” asks the bartender.

“No, he’s a Moderate. He thinks he’s smarter than us, like all Moderates. But we know he’s really just a chicken.”

This is an art blog. That’s all. It’s not about art, it is art…that’s all it is.

Word-Drum believes in tough love. Tough love for liberals and Muslims.

How are some Muslims going to learn about freedom of speech, our most cherished right; and Modern Art, one of the fruits of freedom?

Here’s one way:

(I’m lighting a copy of the Koran on fire.)

(It’s burning well and I’m cooking some pork chops over the flame.)

I call this piece “No More Jihad On The West Or This Will Happen To Everyone Named Mohammed, Not The Jews In Israel”

The book burns but don’t worry there are millions of more copies. It was only symbolic destruction. Not the kind of destruction committed by too many Muslims in the name of Allah all the time.

No one was hurt and I had a nice little snack out of this harmless work of conceptual art.

We are at war and it’s about time we acted like it.

The Mujis are just like the people we called Japs and Krauts. They have to be beaten down before we can be friends and cuddle.

Every Muslim must know that we question their loyalty because of the actions and hatred of the Islamists(who control Islam). We question their so-called Religion. Even liberals do this. Though some would mark 9/11 with a telethon to wipe out ‘Islamophobia.’

Thank Allah it was only an old copy of the Koran that burned. If you now want to “protest” my art work in the manner we are accustomed to coming from crazed Muslims, Bring it.

I always have a few loaded weapons at hand and plenty of ammo. And there are millions of art lovers around me.

Because some people take Art Criticism too far when they target people. Their face could easily become my target…not a pretty picture.


I knew Theo Van Gogh, like many people who lived in Amsterdam. You know what happened to him. Those days are over.
