CC. 1969 Saturday: Today is the second day of the Woodstock Music and Arts Fair. The bands performing today were heavier than the folk artists of the previous day. Some of the performances would be legendary, captured on the first two Woodstock albums. The first album was a 3-LP set while the second album was a 2-LP set. Fantastic music that everyone must own because compared to the crap of the 2000s, there is nothing that will compare.

Blodwyn Pig/Mick Abrahams released an updated version of “All Said and Done,” (March 28, 2004), “Cat Squirrel Blues,” on May 01, 2013.  Mick Abrams and band redid portions of Jethro Tull’s first album, “This Was,” and what a difference between Ian Anderson’s ultimate version and guitarist Abrams musical views.  Remember, after “This Was,” the creative difference between Ian Anderson and the fiery guitarist caused the latter to bolt and everyone knows the rest of the story.  The songs spread across two discs, one of which is acoustic while the other album of this two-disc set is a smoking, red-hot album, both of which make a highly desirable package.  We hope you will go out and seek this album out wherever it is you shop for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.

Monday, August 16, 2021:


[i] We hope to promote the music of the Soft Machine at some point within the next 3-5 years.  We hope you will be with us when that celebrated day arrives.  We thank you.

[ii] We look forward to promoting the music of INXS sometime within the next 15 years or so.  We hope you will be there when we do.  We thank you.

[iii] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[iv] Quill began the day coming on at 2:00 P.M.  Following them were (in order of appearance) Country Joe McDonald, Santana, John Sebastian, the Keef Hartley Band, the Incredible String Band, Canned Heat, Mountain, the Grateful Dead, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin with the Kozmic Blues Band, Sly & the Family Stone, the Who, and the Jefferson Airplane.  The official end of the musical festivities occurred the following morning at 9:40 A.M.

[v] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[vi] When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so.  Please, stay tuned.

[vii] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

[viii] Not exactly sure when we will begin promoting the music of Black Sabbath but when we do we will definitely follow them with AC/DC, the wild and wooly and definitely demonic Australian rock band.

[ix] We won’t be doing the music of this skank unless we are still going in another 50 years or so…you never know, what with HGH, all kinds of strange things are occurring.

[x] When we begin celebrating the music of Motown, Aretha Franklin will be among those artists.




It is becoming clearer: our ‘betters,’ the leaders of the world, may have conspired with the Chi-Coms to infect the world so they could amass incredible wealth and achieve total dominion




If the Chi-Coms are monkeying around with American DNA, the next pandemic could herald the end of the world…




Today, we begin tracking stock prices of the BIG FOUR PHARMA companies manufacturing COVID-19 vaccines in the U.S. cos you know politicians are investing heavily in them hence the full court press on getting the jab…




You can’t make this stuff up: on Day No. 1, Joe Biden destroys U.S. oil and gas production and now that gasoline prices are sky-high, instead of flipping the switch, he is begging OPEC to increase production…WTF!




Message to Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame: God bless you for doing the Lord’s work in exposing just how far down the tubes the United States has fallen and who is responsible for it…




If they can send the army door to door in Australia, you know the Democrats will be doing the exact same thing here…folks, it’s time to fight








The Antitrump strikes again: with the collapse of Kabul complete, the war in Afghanistan is over, and now with millions of illegal aliens roaming the U.S., the war could be coming for us soon…

As have the rest of my colleagues, local Bakersfield street artist, Simone, created these portraits of me that you will see over successive days here at the blog. I guess Simone did ‘okay’ in capturing my likeness; I guess it could have been worse. I was a young cook back in the early 1960's when I commenced my culinary career. I served underneath a Master Chef for many years before striking out on my own. I went up the coast of the Western United States and Canada, working all the way, until I made it to Alaska. From there, I moved to Hawaii for a couple of years (1994-1997) before I returned to Washington State and it was there that I met Stinkbug. El Chilote writes from Shafter, California. El Chilote is a moderate Democrat. Contact me at elchilote2121N@yahoo.com or elchilotegrande10@gmail.com
