(This is edited from before; also, the links in the prior post have changed) Democrazy Liberals love democracy. They worship it. It’s so…equalizing. (That’s why they also love communism). So it was interesting for me to learn that a noted liberal, the late and talented rock singer Lowell George, regretted running his band Little Feat […]

Arguably the best Iron Maiden album. Not a dud song on it. Iron Maiden, “Piece Of Mind” (1983)

(Above: Bill Haley). I like Elvis Presley, but he wasn’t “The King of Rock and Roll” music. (And forget Chuck Berry, who is called “The Father of Rock and Roll” by many people: he came along in 1955, after Elvis). Those two titles belong to Bill Haley. Indeed, Haley enjoyed a number of “firsts” in […]

(Above: Kurt Cobain) Here’s some armchair amateur psychiatry. Ever since about 1973, divorce in America has been a popular trend. Millions of family homes have been “broken” on the altar of feminism and gender equality. I’m not a psychiatrist, but I know a little something about psychology. I know that childhood trauma usually stays with […]

Alex once asked (paraphrasing) “how can Wagner be a musical genius when he only wrote one memorable piece of music (Ride of the Valkyries) and even that one isn’t exactly jaw-dropping?” Yes. He’s right. Most of the “musical geniuses” in history aren’t really geniuses. If you want Mozart and Beethoven, you can keep them. For […]

Black Sabbath, Into the Void (1971). I always found it interesting that the rock critics really hated Sabbath. Too European??

Normal (repeat, normal) human beings are creatures of habit. They don’t like change. They like certain things every day: coffee, toast, the morning newspaper, etc. They need routine. They don’t want to suddenly start wearing yellow shoes, or move to another neighborhood, or whatever. They see change as a bad thing. Liberals, however, are the […]
