In 1977, Roxy Music released their first ‘best of’ package, “Greatest Hits.” This unique art-rock band has so many classic tunes that there is a grand introduction here for the uninitiated. If you want to hear one of the finest musicians of the day as well as someone who musically has it together and is the third pillar of Roxy Music, this album is one YOU need to own. Please use our link so you can redirect your browser to Amazon.com where you can get it for a somewhat hefty price unless you can find an acceptable used version—you will be glad you did.

Original Beverly Carrick Artworks, Beverly Carrick—World Famous Artist, The Ohio Players, Vincent “Venny Wu” Thomas, The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show, Vice President Henry Wilson, Sonny & Cher featuring Sonny Bono, Just the Facts, Roxy Music, Barack Obama, Illegal Aliens, Kyoto Global Warming Pact,

[i] At some point, we will do the music of the Mamas and the Papas the same time we do the music of Sonny & Cher. We hope you will continue awaiting that glorious day.

[ii] 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.

[iii] This is a HOKEY pseudo-science, much like palm-reading and tarot cards to forecast the future. The Sun is the prime driver of climate change across our Solar System, no matter what that crackpot loony tunes, pot-smoking loser, Bill Nye the ‘Science Guy’ claims. Climate on all nine planets (yes, Pluto is a planet) is driven by or the lack of solar flares, sunspots, and solar winds. Do not allow leftist scumbags to terrorize you into believing something that simply that is impossible for humanity to cause. Consider this: in the previous century, s-o-o-o many bombs were dropped, so many artillery shells rained down upon humanity, and so many nuclear weapons tests below ground, at ground level, in the atmosphere, and in the oceans occurred and yet, here we are. Next time some loser attempts to frighten you into surrendering all of your liberties to ‘save the planet,’ tell them to go suck an un-circumcised schlong and to shut the f**k up. You will feel much better.

[iv] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band. The Ohio Players are amazing

[v] Many people believe that President Barack Hussein Obama deserves an asterisk after his name in the history books seeing as how he never cleared up the matter of his birthplace. Yes, he did present a birth certificate of sorts but many contend it was a forgery and that he should be removed completely from the history books of the United States.

I predict once South Carolina is OVER, Lying Liz and Piccolo Pete will be OUT, Joe will either be reinvigorated and on fire or whose collapse will open the door to Hillary, Michelle, or both

Likewise, neither will Mayor Pete, Liz Warren, or Mayor Bloomberg going to do well in the South which is why a large proportion of the black vote will go to Joe Biden or Donald Trump. I mean, unless Hillary Clinton revs up her engines or Michelle Obama decides it’s now or never to save her husband’s crumbling legacy, for whom else will they vote?

WINTER SESSION 2020

 

BLOG POST #3,395 AT THE AICP-END

 

264 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

Lyin’ Liz Warren and Piccolo Pete will NEVER win the nomination and here is why…

Delano, CA 93216, 02-16-2020 Sunday: Greetings, folks, today is my final day of this stint in the BIG CHAIR.  What a week it has been, one in which, we saw the Dems go toe to toe with one another in the New Hampshire Primary this past Tuesday.  Although the people in charge there did a better job than the jumble that occurred in Iowa a couple of weeks back, one still gets the feeling there are people in the backroom attempting to find some way by which, they can boot Bernie Sanders in favor of Joe Biden, Liz Warren, or one of the other less-frightening candidates seeking the 2020 nomination of their party.

Now, I lack ESP but the way things stand right now, everyone is banking on the Vermont socialist.  That is my personal opinion, take it for what it’s worth but I think the next two events- the Nevada Caucuses and the South Carolina Primary could throw the biggest monkey wrench into the gears yet seen in this dismal race.

I suspect Bernie might win in Nevada because that caucus stuff seems extremely corrupt to me as if one employs morons to run apps they have never seen, you are going to get some messed-up results.

However, in South Carolina, I think Old Joe is going to rev up and become Smoking Joe again and he is going to clobber the hell out of not only Bernie Sanders but also Princess Pete, Lizzie (Borden) Warren, and Bloomberg.

The last guy has BIG PROBLEMS now what with all the clips coming out showing him for the closet left-wing, liberal racist that he is.  Black folks are not going to turn out and vote for socialists nor are they going to vote for bigots and racists, even if they claim they are WOKE now.  No one is going to do that so while Bernie might win BIG in the Silver State, he is not going to win in the Deep South.

Likewise, neither will Mayor Pete, Liz Warren, or Mayor Bloomberg going to do well in the South which is why a large proportion of the black vote will go to Joe Biden or Donald Trump.  I mean, unless Hillary Clinton revs up her engines or Michelle Obama decides it’s now or never to save her husband’s crumbling legacy, for whom else will they vote?

I may be somewhat dim in my recollections but the last northeastern liberal who did well in the South with black voters was John Fitzgerald Kennedy.  Other recent Democrats who did well winning the black vote were Lyndon Baines Johnson, Bill Clinton, and of course, Barack Obama.

I do believe the 2020 campaign among the Democrats is going to get worse, way worse in fact.  We are already witnessing the claws coming out as everyone is perusing the Internet in their hectic search to find more and more incriminating information on billionaire Bloomberg.

If Bloomberg thinks he is going to weather this storm, I predict he has another thing coming simply because when one is a stuffed shirt like that old codger, one never thinks they will be held to account for past words.  Good luck with that.

Bloomberg’s downfall is not going to be the nectar to revive flagging campaigns like that of Liz Warren and Piccolo Pete as neither of them stood much of a chance to start with and here is why:

Elizabeth Warren is a liar.  Need I say more?  She stood atop the backs of Native Americans to get cushy jobs.  She has lied about her and her family’s privations.  She has as many skeletons in her basement than does Mayor Bloomberg and most likely more.

Likewise, Mayor Pete is a smarmy little piece of scum.  Rush Limbaugh is correct when he says ‘Americans are not going to vote for a squirrely guy who loves slapping wet kisses on his little hubby bubby’ all the while preaching to us about religion.  Not going to happen.

I suspect both of them will be out after South Carolina, wondering WTF hit them while Old Joe will either be reinvigorated or will open the door for either Hillary or Michelle OR both to enter the race.

Bloomberg?  He can spend as much money as he likes, he’s a New York liberal and that does not play well in most of the rest of the country.  Besides, I am already sick of seeing his TV commercials as much as I am those of another putz, Tom Steyer.  STFU, you two guys are not going to win the nomination.  Period.

See you sometime in the summer.  On to victory!

#BF01.1c Lets Stick Together #3 08-19-16 (400)

Bryan Ferry released his third solo album in 1976, “Let’s Stick Together.” Ferry wanted a solo career at the same time as he performed with Roxy Music because Roxy performed a certain style of music whereas Ferry wanted to do a wide range of unique styles. Unlike the relationship Rod Stewart had with the Faces, he kept his two performing styles separate from one another instead of ripping off the crème de la crème and putting them on his solo efforts. Please, seek this album out wherever you buy the absolute best in rock music- this is one you will enjoy for decades to come.

[i] We presented the music of the Kinks, as well as of Ray and Dave Davies, beginning on Monday, 22-December-2014 through Sunday, 15-March-2015. We hope you will check out the music of this original British invasion band as they are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago. Sure beats the hell out of Maroon Five.

[ii] We are not sure when we will present the music of Supertramp but we hope to do it within the next year or so. You will not want to miss this group, that we can tell you.

[iii] We should have promoted the music of Journey around the time we did the music of Santana. We hope to do so sometime within the next 10-12 years. We hope you will remain alert for the day when we do.

After the entire Trump-Russia collusion hoax was disproven and the president acquitted of impeachment, everyone involved in the entire scam deserves immediate amnesty

Millions of Americans do not understand WHY people are still being punished or having their lives demolished when the underlying crime(s) for which they have been charged turned out to be as phony as the riots that broke out over Michael Brown, a few years back after officer Darren Wilson took his life in an altercation.

WINTER SESSION 2020

 

BLOG POST #3,394 AT THE AICP-END

 

265 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

The Founders never intended for our nation to be the way it is now…

Delano, CA 93216, 02-15-2020 Saturday:  I have to say…tapping the eraser end of my pencil on my desk for emphasis’ sake…that the breach between President Donald J. Trump and Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr is problematic.  There have been times when I have found the president’s tweets distressing but then again, that is the only way he can get his thoughts out to the world without any type of filter inserted between his base and him.  We know that much of the news media does everything possible to distort his words all the while magnifying words tumbling out of the mouths of morons, imbeciles, and frauds such as Nancy Pelosi, Lizzie (Borden) Warren, and “Crying Chuck” Schumer.

Millions of Americans do not understand WHY people are still being punished or having their lives demolished when the underlying crime(s) for which they have been charged turned out to be as phony as the riots that broke out over Michael Brown, a few years back after officer Darren Wilson took his life in an altercation.

Why Roger Stone is having his life trashed by James Comey-Andy McCabe-and-Robert S. Mueller III holdovers is beyond many of us.  The man did little to nothing except to make an unfortunate statement or two and now faces a death sentence of 7-9 years in a prison much like poor Paul Manafort earned for his part in this charade.

Personally, I believe there should be a general amnesty now because everyone with half a brain more knows that the charges of collusion between Trump and Moscow are bogus.  It has been disproven no matter how much the slimy Democrats want to cling to it, like leeches to one’s privates, that it was a doggone, well-orchestrated, attempted coup against a duly elected president.  Enough!

The problem with the Democrats is that they seldom learn from their mistakes.  Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, thought he had things well in hand when he went to the nuclear option to pass judges through to the nation’s federal courts.  Never did he think in his wildest wet dreams that the GOP was capable of winning back the U.S. Senate anytime soon during the Obama years and then, lo and behold, they did, and the Grim Reaper uses the nuclear option like it’s nothing.

He fought off Obama’s judicial nominees in the last 18 months or so and then when Donald J. Trump became president, he and Mitch were able to get a record number of judges onto the nation’s appellate and district courts as well as get not one but two justices onto the U.S. Supreme Court, much to the horror of the foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats.   You reap what you sow, losers.

President Trump spoke up on behalf of his friend, Roger Stone, because what the Mueller holdovers want to do is to make sure an old man who did nothing to warrant the treatment he is getting to die in prison and most likely in one of their worst.  Why?

I think the message this sends is that anyone who works with Trump and who is not squeaky clean could and most likely will face the anal exam of a lifetime as well as a second one run down the throat to check the upper gastrointestinal tract.  This is what will happen and woe to anyone who makes a careless statement- especially a flipping joke- because the liberal Democrats will come after them like a mob of banshees after a couple of travelers.

This is not justice as Americans know it, SHOULD know it, at least when I went to school, we never feared that justice in the courts could be extremely difficult to obtain, depending upon one’s party affiliation.

I mean, look at what we now know about the foreman of the Roger Stone jury, a political hack and lawyer named Tomeka Hart, a POS who made numerous anti-Stone and anti-Trump statements in person, on social media, and anywhere else someone would provide her a soapbox.  This is justice?

We have all agreed that if the FBI ever comes calling (or any other federal law enforcement agency, for that matter), we will not willingly speak with them sans an attorney.  Why?  One false or imprecise statement is enough to have federal prosecutors charge one with making erroneous false statements which can send one to prison for a lengthy stretch.

Again, I say this is not right and it is something the nation definitely needs to fix.  Otherwise, we are at the untender mercies of liberal left-wing socialists and thugs and that was never what the Founders of the country intended for us to face.

Thanks for joining me today, folks, we will wrap everything up tomorrow.  I will see you then.

In 1976, Roxy Music released their first live album, the wonderful, “Viva!” Of all the English bands of the 1970s-early 1980s, ONLY Roxy Music has the amazing musical ability and talent with which to transcend both space and time through the unique style of their music. The vocals and keyboards of Bryan Ferry intermingled with the minimalistic guitars of Phil Manzanera and the flavors of Andy Mackay’s sax-and-oboe work had the ability to bring tears to the ears of their listeners. Augmented by the rest of the band—Eddie Jobson (violin, keyboards), Paul Thompson (drums), and several bass players—the band delivered a sterling live album compiled from several performances. We hope you will seek it out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best rock music in the world. Enjoy.

We finish shoveling the dirt atop the second batch of failed, forlorn, and forsaken 2020 Democrat presidential candidates and wait- there’s room for more, Pt. 2

Where were we? Oh, we were looking at the Democratic Party 2020 Boot Hill for the failed candidates and man, they are piling up although one or two seemingly do not want to join their fellows with their boots up. Tulsi Gabbard refuses to quit and God bless her, why the heck should she? Unlike Wall Street-Princess Pete, she actually has substance.

WINTER SESSION 2020

 

BLOG POST #3,393 AT THE AICP-END

 

266 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

We finish dispatching the losers to the 2020 Democratic Boot Hill- far better place than the ‘Clinton Boot Hill—they got like 150 people on that one…

Delano, CA 93216, 02-14-2020 Friday:  Happy Valentine’s Day, folks.  This is one of the most profitable holidays in the foodservice industry but almost all two-tops and hardly any larger tables.  Occasionally, we get a four-top or two but it’s always two tops which means we have to move some tables to the back and bring in some additional two-tops so star-crossed lovers can gaze into one another’s eyes.  Man, do we sell loads of our house specialty desserts, particularly a glorious white chocolate-raspberry cheesecake complete with some specialty liqueurs such as Chambord.  Great stuff, I can tell you, we macerate the fresh, locally grown- that’s right- I said locally grown berries.  Not for the kids, I can tell you but who the f**k brings their kids out on Valentine’s Day.

Where were we?  Oh, we were looking at the Democratic Party 2020 Boot Hill for the failed candidates and man, they are piling up although one or two seemingly do not want to join their fellows with their boots up.  Tulsi Gabbard refuses to quit and God bless her, why the heck should she?  Unlike Wall Street-Princess Pete, she actually has substance.

Okay, the tenth candidate to have given up the fight is someone everyone knows (just kidding, folks, just kidding), Congressman Joe Sestak of Pennsylvania.  Joe joined the war against Trump on June 22, 2019 and hung it up (no one noticed) on December 01, 2019.  Gee whiz, maybe next time?

The eleventh candidate to tug the parachute cord was a guy who seemingly could have been a contender back in 2008- Gov. Steve Bullock of Montana.  The guy is ‘together,’ he’s not a nut, he has his head squarely on his shoulders and the insane asylum Democrats running the show blew him off, although he did make it into the first debate as I recall and did very well.  Oh, well, it is what it is.

The twelfth Democrat candidate to tell the referee “No más” was someone we couldn’t wait to see climb over the ropes and out of the ring was our very own, Senator Kamala Harris.  She made a big show when she entered on January 21, 2019- the 90th anniversary of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.- and gave up the fight, putting away her manos of stone on Tuesday, December 03, 2019.

Oh, woe, folks, she only got her position from schlepping former Assembly Speaker Willie Brown of the Golden State so when she departed, no one noticed or gave a hoot other than the race-conscious Democrats.

The next fellow who managed to go a tad bit farther than the previous loser was El Paso, Texas, Mayor Julian “I’m a Mexican” Castro.  This anti-American loser joined the food fight on January 12, 2019 and decided to move back home to Juarez, Mexico (just kidding, folks, he claims he is an American) on January 02, 2020.  Then, he stumped around with Lizzie (Borden) Warren until she sent him to run his taco truck.  What a fall.

You know things are bad when a good bud of Oprah Winfrey- Marianne Williamson, psychic and someone who communes with the gods- becomes the fourteenth candidate to leave the race.  I think Marianne made it into the first two debates and then went ‘bye-bye,’ which is sad.  She seemed like someone you would want to smoke crack with.  Ah, well, she entered the race on January 28, 2019 and sadly called it quits on Friday, January 10, 2020.  So much for having the Big ‘O’ for a friend, huh?

Alas, the fifteenth loser (I mean, ‘candidate’) to tell his fellow Democrats to “GO F— THEMSELVES” was Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey.  “Old Chrome Dome” entered the race to much trumpeting and banging of drums on Friday, February 01, 2019 and much to his surprise (but not that of rational, thinking political observers like me, a professional chef) went home with his tail between his legs on Monday, January 13, 2020.

Yesterday, we began with the sixteenth entry into the 2020 Democratic sweepstakes because he was the first in- former Congressman John Delaney of Maryland.  He was a great fellow but you can read about him by re-reading yesterday’s post.  This guy could have been a stunning nominee.  Truly tragic to see him go.

Now we come to numbers seventeen and eighteen, both of whom tossed the towel in on Tuesday following the destruction of their candidacies in the aftermath of New Hampshire’s primary.  The first to go was Andrew Yang, one thousand bucks a month to every adult man and woman was not enough.

The other person was poor Senator Michael Bennett.  Much like Delaney, a smart, rational guy (but looks sort of dopey), he never stood a chance.  Yang entered on November 06, 2017- the second longest to run while the Coloradan joined the fight on Thursday, May 02, 2019 and left with the billionaire tech guru, one after the other.

We almost had a nineteenth bailout- Tom Steyer- on the same night as the previous two but for some reason beknown only to himself, the moment he tossed the towel he pulled it back.  The question is WHY.

That will do it for today.  Please, tell me what YOU think- I’m all ears (or eyes if you will).  Happy Valentine’s Day.

#PM01.1a Diamond Head #1 08-19-16 (400)

 

In 1975, Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera released his first solo album, the well-received “Diamond Head.” Phil ranks among the best guitarists of the decade as he brings a minimalistic approach to playing the guitar, saying MUCH with little effort. This album contains NINE songs upon which, he has a who’s who of British rockers as well as some bandmates from Roxy Music joining him and what is even better, some of the guests provide some stellar vocals, which is why we wholeheartedly promote this CD to all fans of the band and of its individual parts. Please, look for it wherever you purchase the best in rock music- you will definitely enjoy it.
