How tall, dark and handsome this album is.
“Moods: You, the Night and the Music”-various artists style.
No kiddies or noise toys. No monotonous thunks or lame and base innuendo.
Sophisticated jazz. Energetic. Smart. Lots of sly winks. And I mean plenty of sexy smirks teasing you to ease up and do “your thing”.
I could go on forever about this one, but mealtime’s better spent actually tasting the food.
Note: Regarding the song “Bloodstream”. If you have recently broken things off with a romantic partner, go lighten the heck up and then come back to give it a spin. It’s a gorgeous number which deserves you smiling, dancing next to a shaft of sunlight. It would seem a shame to spend it on memories of you both shopping for engagement rings in Sam’s Club. Or fantasies of you rushing back to one another for some slow motion kissing. Yeah..naw, enjoy this one fully.

Every time I would lift my head, over the years..decades, and see this man perform-it was like hitting the light switch.
From top to bottom, then to now..what a gorgeously brilliant man this one turned out to be. In more ways than one.
When you catch a long passed favorite song playing, it’s like reuniting with a dear, old friend.
You’re all smiles and admiration over how it hasn’t changed one bit. Memories flood back, strung between first and last notes, of who you once were. Just as you remember each lyric and quarter beat, a song remembers each of your fears and wishes from the time you first met.
Here’s one of my old friends-weary after traveling from the eight track player in my father’s car , umpty years ago, to here.. with you.
It is amazing…
How some songs, like the rarest of friends, come to you already aware of your dreams.
This is one of my more cherished finds of a song. Good thing too, as I had to listen to it quite a bit during multiple edits.
Thank you for taking the time.
We need to be reminded that the Constitution is a very real thing. In it, runs the blood of souls who thought it was what they were dying for. Its roots are saturated by the tears of mothers whose children were forced to die for it, as well.
The following video provides evidence of presidents SWEARING oaths to uphold the words in it. In the front end, it means those words were meant to be honored. Protected. Law.
In the back end, presidents who failed to honor it..including the branches that allowed it, have robbed us of the freedoms we deserve.
Not the freedoms they TELL us we have.
I couldn’t see things in front of my face, some times, if they were dipped in phosphorus powder.
Live and learn, right?
Take the UFO controversy. Believe or don’t believe… here comes a little bit of common sense figuring that many of us should do.
If you subscribe to the theory that a secret and all powerful group of guys is running things “behind the scenes” without challenge or shame, then chances are likely you aren’t unfriendly to the notion of secrets being kept from us. UFO cover-ups are a common enough example of such secrets.
Now. If there is a belief that the Big Secret Guys own and manipulate us on a grand scale, our media is usually thought to be the vehicle by which they best accomplish their so-called evil deeds. The topic of Big Guys pulling the strings of government puppets.. Also standard fare.
If it is the same Big Guys who own the networks producing shows on the “unveiling” of a government hiding truths on aliens….where’s the sense in believing what they have to “reveal”? How can we believe we’re getting tantalizing hints of what’s “really going on” via the very hands of the very same entities that we claim major distrust in?
There is no common sense in that direction of thinking. Not at all. Comically so-called Mega Mind Villains would have to be complete fools to uncover “top secrets” out in the open…for billions of eyes to see…from their own front yard.
(President Ronald Reagan, United Nations in 1987)
“Perhaps we need some outside universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.”

The week of September 11th is coming upon us soon.
I choose to focus upon this Loving Brother, Mr. Bill Cooper.
I think about his prediction regarding an attack upon the American people, which came to be.
I think about how he predicted his own death, at the hands of highest authorities.
A death which was suffered at the end of a life mostly dedicated to trying to save us…slandered mercilessly throughout.
You know. Like Jesus.
