  54. 2020 Memorial Day Monday: Failed New York Governor releases a 51-page edict outlining how the state will reopen in the event COVID-19- communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ which is sad. The (former) Empire State will never be the same what with a constant stream of middle-and-upper-middle class citizens leaving for elsewhere. Here are the statistics for the Wuhan Virus for today, first the globe: 5,490,954 confirmed cases, 345,962 confirmed deaths, but 2,228,952 confirmed recoveries which is amazing and a good sign.
  55. 2020 Memorial Day Monday A: Here are the statistics for the United States: 1,696,874 confirmed cases, 99,459 confirmed deaths, but 352,612 confirmed recoveries which would resemble the percentage of the globe IF the various Blue State governors would be honest and present the numbers of recoveries but they won’t. They seek to keep things locked down which in our view is criminal: it demonstrates the COLLUSION between the Democratic Party and their communist Chinese taskmasters in Beijing and here in our country. We must thwart them.
  56. 2020 Memorial Day Monday B: In the three states in which the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the numbers, California first: 94,558 confirmed cases, 3,785 confirmed deaths, BUT NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries which demonstrates the scumbag Gov. Gavin Newsom KNOWS that if he shared them, NO one would obey his stay-at-home orders. In Hawaii, here are the figures: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 591 confirmed recoveries for which, we must thank Gov. David Ige for his honesty. Finally, in Washington state where whacked-out Governor Jay Inslee holds power (people, vote this baboon out!), here are the stats: 20,065 confirmed cases, 1,070 confirmed deaths, and sadly, like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. You know, Washington was once a wonderful state but now- in the grip of Democrats- languishes in the throes of Democratic-Socialism! Free California! Free Washington! Free Tibet! Free Hong Kong! Free Macau! Free and independent Taiwan (until they liberate the mainland)! Free from Democratic-Socialism and Communism!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#PF001.2j Pulse #36 05-08-2020 (400)

 

On June 05, 1995, Pink Floyd released a new live album, this one a two-CD effort that featured more of the band’s tunes from its career. It is a fabulous album and a film also exists that demonstrates how powerful this group was and why they are so important in the annals of music history. We love this album and know you will, too, which is why we encourage everyone to seek it out and to add it to your collection. We know you will love it as much as we do and it’s a shame that Roger Waters could not have been enticed to return to the fold.

Politics aside, we wish her a full recovery and a swift return to work. This woman is amazing, she has survived numerous health crises in her life and always comes back strong. God bless you.
  55. 2020 Tuesday Part A: Meanwhile, the COVID-19 update for the day: confirmed cases globally stand at 3,659,271; confirmed deaths are 256,929; and confirmed recoveries are 1,197,735 which is extremely good. In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,233,146, confirmed deaths are 71,921, and confirmed recoveries are 163,841. In the states connected to this blog, stats for California confirmed cases stand at 56,705 while confirmed deaths are 2,309. Sadly, Gov. Gavin Newsom won’t provide confirmed recoveries. In Hawaii, confirmed cases are 625, confirmed deaths are 17 and confirmed recoveries are 551. Finally, in Washington state, confirmed cases are 15,557 and confirmed deaths are 862. No information on confirmed recoveries so Gov. Jay Inslee is behaving just like Gov. Newsom. Shame on them. Question: WHY won’t Democrat-controlled states present recovery statistics? Finally, communist China’s statistics, the place where this curse began remains the same: confirmed cases: 88,423; confirmed deaths: 4,633; and confirmed recoveries: 81,785 same as they were a week ago. Shame.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#PF001.1p Animals #16 04-19-2020 (400)

 

Following the success of “Wish You Were Here,” Pink Floyd returned to the studio following extensive touring and delivered a lengthy concept album, the classic, “Animals.”  This album hit record store shelves on January 21, 1977, and is exceptional, extremely exceptional in that to us, it represents a musical facsimile of George Orwell’s “Animal Farm” crossed with H. G. Wells’ “Island of Dr. Moreau,” in that it deals with humans but in animal form and the revenge they might enact on their persecutors.  We hope you will seek this album out by visiting your favorite site for the all-time greatest rock-and-roll albums as we know you are going to enjoy it as much as we did back then and still do now.  We thank you.

#PF001.1b A Saucerful of Secrets #2 05-24-2014 (400)

 

On June 29, 1968, Pink Floyd returned with its sophomore effort, the acclaimed “A Saucerful of Secrets.”  This album is the ONLY album among the group’s efforts to feature a quintet.  Besides Syd Barrett (vocals/guitars), Roger Waters (bass/vocals), Nicky Mason (drums and percussion), and Rick Wright (keyboards/vocals), was David Gilmour (guitar/vocals).  Gilmour was coming on board due to the mental meltdown of Barrett who would soon be confined to insane asylums with periods of wandering the streets of London.  This album was not quite as strong as its predecessor but still ranks among the top releases of its time.  We hope you will seek this one out at whatever site you shop for nothing but the absolute best in music as folks, you damn sure are going to love it.

#BF01.1e The Bride Stripped #5 08-19-16 (400)

 

We have mentioned that sometimes, Bryan Ferry hits the nail on the head and other times, he leaves his listeners stumbling around in the dark searching for a theme. Well, “The Bride Stripped Bare” (1978), is an album that has some dark movements but then, every album Ferry records is a stunning individualistic effort that fans enjoy. Ferry defined Roxy Music, Roxy Music defined Ferry, and one can see and hear common threads roaming through the works of each.  We hope you will look for this fabulous album out wherever you shop for the finest in rock music. We know you will enjoy it.

  55. 2020: Following a speech by President Trump at the National Prayer Breakfast, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi goes to the microphone banks and gives one of her most incoherent, rambling, ambling speeches yet, attacking the president, condemning the president, and trying to justify tearing up the president’s speech at Tuesday night’s SOTU address. How this senile crone clings to power is beyond millions of Americans; we expect her to pay the price on Election Day 2020 becoming the first House speaker to lose the position not once but twice, along with her congressional seat. Later, President Trump thanked his supporters in both House and Senate, as well as his cabinet members, and other assembled VIPS. The speech was absolutely wonderful and concluded with the president’s determination to help as many Republicans win or keep their seats in November. Godspeed, Mr. President, Godspeed. Meanwhile, in China, more and more images come out via social media showing the outbreak of the corona virus to be far worse than what the communist authorities claim. We think a biological warfare experiment went awry and now the world is going to pay the price for their bumbling. Thank you, President Xi, thank you.

#RM01.1b For Your Pleasure #2 03-06-2015 (400)

The second album by Roxy Music, “For Your Pleasure” came out in 1973 and featured a slightly altered lineup of Brian Eno (vocals, electronics), Phil Manzanera (guitars), Andy Mackay (oboes, saxophones), Paul Thompson (drums), and John Porter (bass). As with most sophomore efforts, the band had more time to devote to the album, which yielded some amazing tunes such as “Do the Strand,” and “In Every Home a Heartache.” The band ranks at the top of all 1970s bands because Ferry has a unique vocal style, Manzanera and his guitar are raw, and primitive while Mackay and his oboe and saxophones capped off with Brian Eno and his synthesizers and electronics make a fantastic combination. This is a superb album so please buy it wherever you buy the finest in music.

 

As always, we thank the good folks at Brainy History for doing the extremely challenging work of compiling historical happenings, dates, and everything else by which at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day publish a blog that draws readers from all over the world! Thank you and God bless you for doing this especially important work!

 #BOM0001.1l Kern CA #2 07-21-2019 (400)

[i] Just like what the Democrats are attempting to do in 2020 as they try to remove President Donald J. Trump from office and to subordinate the office of the presidency- head of the Executive Branch- to the House speaker in the Legislative Branch.  How well did things work out for Europe in the 1930s-1940s?  Not so good.

[ii] We began offering the music of the Doors on Saturday, 18-February-2012 and concluded them on Monday, 02-April-2012.  We encourage everyone to seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iii] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[iv] We presented the music of Roxy Music at the secondary blog and hope to do it at the main blog sometime within the next 3 years. At the secondary blog, we began promoting the music of this famed British band as well as of Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, and Phil Manzanera beginning on Wednesday, September 07, 2016 through several successive months.  We hope you will seek them out.

[v] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.

[vi] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vii] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing and what is even more exciting is the fact that the band is still alive today and performing to this day.

[viii] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.

[ix] We promoted the music of Buffalo Springfield beginning on Saturday, 17-November-2012 through Saturday, 24-November-2012.  We hope you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.

[x] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.

[xi] We presented the music of this British prog-rock band, the amazing King Crimson, beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[xii] We should have promoted the music of Asia around the time we did King Crimson and/or Family but we failed to do so.  However, we hope to do so sometime within the next 10-15 years.
