The Genius Behind The Motown Sound...





And one of the biggest success stories of Motown was: Diana Ross & The Surpremes...

Local Natives - Another Relatively Unknown Indie Band...



Recently heard this track on a local radio station as well (no pun intended) and thought it was surprisingly good, and at least worth bookmarking somewhere...

How Billie Eilish's Bad Guy Works | Artists Series S3E1



One thing that I found particularly interesting (for more reasons then one) in relation to this video, and regarding this particular Indie artist, were the comments on YouTube about Billie Eilish recording this specific track, and at least some of her other songs, in her bedroom. (That may not necessarily include the mixing and mastering part of it though). From what I understand, with all the changes in the Music Industry, and with allot of the online services available today, and all the advances in digital recording technology for instance, this has become increasingly more common these days, especially with Independent Artists and musicians...

Joe Biden Partially Responsible for The Huge Amount of Student Debt...



Another great case in point for why we need an Amendment to the Constitution to remove the dark, dirty money from politics, and another great example of why Joe Biden is bought, that allot of people, especially the democratic voters, are mostly not aware of. Yea, I also agree with Cenk Uygur here, that the Progressive candidates (like Warren and Sanders) not only do a great disservice to this country, by not saying much to make voters aware of this, but also risk their own candidacy, by not bringing home this extremely important point and fact. Biden is a bad joke, and a phoney, I'm sorry to say. But unfortunately, it is the truth. And he would definitely be bad for the country if he was ever elected president, and be a bad candidate to run against Trump. 'Cause all Trump has to do is use the facts (including Biden's own voting record) about why he would be a bad choice to run the country, and therefore, just by exposing some of Biden's quite refutable, bare-faced lies, and phoney talking points, irregardless of Trump's own questionable character, would once again (like in the 2016 election) symbolize two of some of the worst choices for President in the country's history.
Also worth noteing here, is that this is another great example of why we need INDEPENDENT media, because most of the (American) Main Stream Media (and the pundits there) are bought themselves, and have their own agenda...

The Curse of Lake Ronkonkoma



Whoa, just read about this. I lived on Long Island, and actually swam in this lake as a kid (before I lived on Long Island myself) but am not sure if I ever heard of this particular legend, or curse. Hmm? Interesting, for more reasons then one...
Note: Ronkonkoma is also a village on Long Island, in which the lake is located...





Very interesting. The dream the lifeguard describes, in this brief video documentary,
is very similar to the dream depicted in a movie, that is also based on real events called: 'The Mothman Prophecies' - starring Richard Gere. Great flick. Allota' somewhat related food for thought there...

You NEED To Know This About Christopher Columbus



Yea, I'm not a Historian, so I don't have access to all these journals and documents mentioned here on a first hand basis and all, but from what I understand, and in all fairness, Christopher Columbus was not necessarily directly involved with most of the atrocities mentioned here and in some of the other commentaries about these incredibly sickening things. In fact, from what I understand, he considered many of them extremely abhorent. (Could be mistaken though). From what I also understand, Columbus took with him allot of prisoners who were like sorta' given amnesty to assist him on at least his first voyage. (Possibly by the Queen of Spain, but not sure).
And they were individuals who were thieves, murderers, rapists, psychopaths, etc.
The bottom line though, is if he witnessed these things happening and did nothing about it, that would not make him a good man, for sure. And definitely, not someone we should celebrate, or name a holiday in his honor. Also, I found kinda' odd in this discussion, is what one of the commentators said here, in relation to Italian immigrants, and the reason why President Roosevelt established Columbus Day as a National Holiday to begin with; where he said, something to the effect, that Roosevelt really didn't need to do that, because Italian immigrants were not necessarily treated as badly as other immigrants. Which is really not true. I seen a documentary once, and yea, it was pretty bad. And I'm not just saying that because I'm an Italian American myself. It is a fact. Also, from what I understand, many of the Indigenous people at the place where Columbus and his men found themselves, did not necessarily die out solely because they were all slaughtered, but much of it was also because of diseases that the Europeans brought with them that the natives had no immunity for. Either way, the incredibly terrible crimes discussed here, and more, did happen. And that this was a VERY dark chapter in American history, that has seemingly been glossed over in our school text books, does appear to be true. And it is just one more telling example of Imperilism (or Colonialism) run amock, and some of the things that were to come...

Ellen Defends Hanging With War Criminals



I just had to post a comment on YouTube regarding this as follows...

"Yea, I have to say, the REALLY strange thing about Rosie O'Donnell's tweet, that completely blew me away as well, and just didn't make any sense at all, is that she is also a 9/11 Truther!!! WTF? 
In other words, she basically believes that Bush was involved with the (alleged) terrorist attacks on 9/11. I'm not saying this is necessarily not true either, but my point is, is the problem with the statement in her tweet on just so many levels. It doesn't even line up with her own beliefs! What? 
(Its like she completely made an about face for some reason). Very strange. 
I'm not sure, except to think, possibly, that maybe some spooks got to her in some way? (Quite possibly, because they noticed we are currently following each other on Twitter?) 
Some kind of intimidation? Not sure. But things just keep getting stranger and stranger. (And a big part of the reason why, in my strong opinion anyway, is all the things that just don't seem to add up regarding the 9/11 thing). 
Anyway, just my 2 cents here. People can be weird man. I definitely learned that. 
And with all due respect to Rosie, maybe that's why Trump himself goofs on her? 
I don't know. Maybe, its like some kind of personal animosity we don't know about? 
But she REALLY does hate him, that may just go beyond political differences, because, as you say Jimmy, Bush was even worse then Trump! I don't get it myself. (At least, not right now). Yea, but there may be something going on there, that we just don't know about. But, once again, it just goes to show you how strange the country has become. Sad..."

Also, could it be, there is really more to George Bush that we just don't know about? Especially in relation to the incredibly strange events that transpired on Sept. 11th, 2001 and the Deep State? Things that very possibly go allot deeper (no pun intended) then we actually realize? And that they (like Ellen DeGeneres and other celebrities, and non-celebrities) are sorta like all part of the same club? And then, that opens up another whole can of worms, as to what that club exactly is...
