Odd measures, key changes, complex chord changes. And great bass playing! It was written by Michael Mercer and Gerry Goffin. First recorded in 1973 by Thelma Houston!

Meanwhile, I have to agree with Elton here… Where did actual songs go?

Update on Test iTunes Playlist Export to Html

This version adds a bit of a description for each item. Again it’s a little bit hit and miss because the script takes the podcast ‘Artist’, combines it with the episode ‘Name’, does a custom Google search for that artist/episode and then builds the link. The Google search has to happen because in my original iTunes playlist XML export, the item links to the downloaded mp3 on my computer.

DEA Manufacturing Caps for Oxycodone and Hydrocodone 2001-2017

The D.E.A (Drug Enforcement Agency) sets caps on the amounts of schedule 1 and 2 drugs that manufacturers can legally produce each year.   I was curious to see how the caps had changed over time and it was relatively simple to discover via the Federal Register. Considering all the lawsuits now targeting pharmaceutical manufacturers like Purdue, Johnson & Johnson, Allergen and Teva, I wonder if the D.E.A could also be considered an actor in the current opioid epidemic.

 

…final aggregate production quotas for the following controlled substances, expressed in grams of anhydrous acid or base, be established as follows:

(Not sure what ‘conversion’ means in this sense, but I think it has to do with converting one substance to another, i.e. one drug could be converted into another.)

McLuhan’s 1960 Report on Project in Understanding New Media | Norm Friesen

In the cryptic note at the top right (on p. 2), McLuhan writes to Harley Parker, with whom he later co-authored Through the Vanishing Point: Space in Poetry and Painting (1968) and Counterblast (1969). Parker also appears with McLuhan in the 28 min 1969 film Picnic in Space, directed by Bruce Bacon.

This text reflects McLuhan’s then-coalescing thought as it relates to both education and to multiple media forms; and the text serves as relatively direct and clearly-written precursor for the 1964 Understanding Media.

The full text of this report is available as a 7.5 Mb PDF file.

Avant-Garde to Electric Kool-Aid With Beats In Between

reallyTheBluesThe book was first published in 1946. It’s by Mezz Mezzrow and Bernard Wolfe and is about as Beat as anything I’ve ever read, although it predates the ‘Beats’ per se.   Mezz was a white clarinet player from Chicago who befriended ‘the race’ when sent
to reform school. He never really went back to white America. He became good friends with Louis Armstrong. He’s known as well for introducing weed to Harlem. It has a great index and an appendix of hipster lingo such as:
Beat: exhausted, broke
Bunk Habit: practice of lounging around while others smoke opium and inhaling the fumes
Collar a nod: get some sleep
Cop a Slave: get a job
Guage: marijuana

The book came to my attention when shortly after being dumfounded by the discovery of Lord Buckley (His Royal Hipness, Discovery 71001 on   cd) and his Be-bop stand up routines complete with weed references, recorded in 1951,   I exclaimed at a party- Where did he (and the obvious tradition he was a part of) come from? An old hoot (with all respect)   by the name of Oz   Janiger chimed in- “You need to read Really The Blues”. -Man!- this book is a missing link. It blew my mind. I guess mainly because it attaches the Beats backwards to the swing era and the beat Blacks who were floating   around underground making all kinds of wild music and language.

garretsAndPretendersWhile I’m at it,   from Really The Blues I go backwards with a book called Garrets and Pretenders- A History of Bohemianism in America by Albert Parry, written in 1933, and backwards from there to…

theBanquetYearsThe Banquet Years- Origins of the avant-garde in France 1885 to World War l, by Roger Shattuck. Is this where the Beats began?
Covers Alfred Jarry,  Henri Rousseau, Erik Satie, Guillaume Apollinaire and the zeitgeist of the day. Fascinating!

electricKoolaidAcidTestI go forward from the Beats to Kesey and his crew with Tom Wolfe’s The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, where we find our hero Neal Cassady behind the wheel of Furthur. Then Neal and Jack die and the whole thing sort of comes to an end for me. I mean, the thread of that tradition that you can trace back to the Montmartre of Paris in the 1880s. But you know, I’m older now, not paying as much attention. Can anyone point to where the juice went? My pet theory, ala McLuhan, is that now we live in Internet Culture and the global village and all that, so things are really quite different and we get Raves instead of Beat Movements.

Junk Mail Calendars From Conservation Groups? Conservation FAIL

Not something I’d normally write about in here, but this is ridiculous! In the last week I received two unsolicited calendars from conservation groups!

Your Free Nature Conservancy Calendar 2010
Your Free National Parks Conservation Association 2010 Calendar

Does sending bulk junk mail calendars send the wrong message?
I think so. I’m going to keep a list of the free calendars I receive (and throw away) here, just to remind me NEVER to support these clueless conservation groups.

Let’s add Carl Pope and the Sierra Club for this Free U.S. Wall Map.
And a bulky full-color guilt trip of a reminder letter from The Nature Conservancy that I still haven’t donated to them for the calendar I didn’t want or ask for.

E. Howard Hunt names the men who killed Kennedy

On November 23, 1963 I was a grade two student. I sat in the desk in the front row next to my friend Bruce. I remember that it was very unusual that the Sister who taught us rolled a television set into the classroom. She seemed to be very upset. There was the sense of something being very wrong. She turned on the black and white television and explained to us that the President had been killed. Today is the 45th anniversary (do you call it an anniversary if it was a tragedy?) of the murder of JFK
The following is a re-post of an article from May of 2007.
——–

I’m not familiar with prisonplanet.com, but they tell the story of a recording E. Howard Hunt made on his deathbed. The tape was recently made public by Howard Hunt’s son, Saint John Hunt. On the tape Howard Hunt describes a bitter LBJ and his involvement with the murder of JFK. Hunt names others who were involved in the conspiracy. Five minutes of the tape were aired recently on CoastToCoastAM.com
There is a direct link to the mp3 file here.

What’s been bugging me about it is, what if it’s true? I mean – just for a minute – inhabit a world where the Kennedy assassination has been solved- We know who did it, who helped who and why.
Now what?
How is justice served over 40 years later? Who’s going to pay?
What does it mean? What would change?
How do I heal, or why, or who cares?
Is it just miscellaneous information?
