The Beatles Weren’t & Aren’t The Greatest

When it comes to music, there are certain names you will hear over and over again to the point of being made physically ill – such as Bruce Springsteen, who never could (in my opinion) sing a note, the guy has one of the worst voices ever, though not as terrible as Tom Petty’s – and Diana Ross, the skinniest bug-eyed bitch I have ever laid eyes on, not the prettiest of The Supremes nor was her voice spectacular…not to mention her greed for more fame & fortune and her lust for European males…

Anyway, my rant today concerns The Beatles. Yes, The Beatles. Why they are supposed to be so great has me puzzled, as I have never held that opinion nor will I ever – the same reason I would not call Elvis Presley ‘The King’ or Michael Jackson ‘The Prince of Pop’…they simply weren’t and aren’t, not to me anyway. No one else is either. There are some good musicians and even great musicians out there, and people with fantastic voices that can bring tears to my eyes, though usually it’s the lyrics.

If you Google ‘Why are The Beatles so great?’ you will get page after page of fanatics waxing rhapsodic about the alleged ‘greatness’ of this English band. Probably most if not all of them are White because I truly do not know of any extreme Beatles fan who isn’t outside of my brother – and he is more of a Prince fan to be honest. If you Google ‘Why are The Beatles so overrated’ you will at least come across pages that explain why, in the writers’ opinions, that English band wasn’t so hot after all.

I believe they are very overrated in the same way Nirvana is, Beyonce is, Kiss is, Jimi Hendrix is, and Madonna is. We all have our own viewpoints about music, movies, books, TV shows, etc, and mine concerning The Beatles is that they are definitely overrated. When I listen to their music, I hear songs with lyrics that many critics exclaim in ecstasy are just unbelievably fantastic, but hell…I think Prince wrote better music and far superior lyrics even though a lot of his songs were on the sex-crazed side. I have also heard songs by bands many people have never heard of, simply because they are outside of the mainstream, yet their songs are as good, if not better, than anything recorded by The Beatles.

When you really listen subjectively to the music of The Beatles, you can hear the ordinariness. Most of their voices weren’t even that great, particularly noticeable in such songs as ‘I Wanna Hold Your Hand’ – which has some of the goofiest lyrics ever in a Beatles song – ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’, and ‘Ob La Di Ob La Da’, to mention but a few. The music was not anything to get stirred up about and neither were their looks, which was too English to be considered hot looking, other than George Harrison that is (he was always my favorite). Paul McCartney looked like a sad-eyed puppy, John Lennon had a slinky Asian appearance – maybe that’s why he caught Yellow Fever – and Ringo Starr was just…well, damned ugly.

The Beatles were a good band maybe even a great band – but they damn sure aren’t the greatest band!

People Magazine is Awful

People Magazine is the worst publication I have ever had the misfortune to thumb through whilst sitting bored and impatient in a doctor’s office. It is very whitewashed, celebrity-obsessed, and wholly dumb into the bargain. I would not waste a penny on this terrible rag, nor would I even want a free subscription. It is just another publication that glorifies the White race here in this country (as well as globally), putting Caucasians up on a pedestal more so than any other rag in existence. True, they may have a brown face on the cover sometimes but that is rare – almost as rare as a blue moon.

I know that there are other star-fucking magazines out there, but People takes the cake. I have never suffered from that hideous disease known as Celebrity Worship Syndrome, and I honestly don’t know how it feels to be a fan of someone so deeply and feel so strongly about that person, an individual I have never met (and will undoubtedly never meet), that it physically hurts when that person kicks the bucket. I mean, really…who cares anyway? Sure, it’s sad when someone dies but if I don’t personally know that person, it does not truly affect me in any way. I’m certain that when Stephen King or Dean Koontz or Joy Fielding pass on, I will be rather sorrowful but it will be for selfish reasons like when Anne Rule left this world last year: no more will I read another great book by this author.

People Magazine’s 100 Most Beautiful list is particularly annoying, especially when they have for the cover some two-bit actress that one can barely call even cute. Take Jennifer Anniston, for example. On the plain side to me, Jennifer for some reason was considered – by the Caucasians that run People Magazine at any rate – the most beautiful woman in the world for 2016. WHAT?!?! That bleached blonde bimbo is not beautiful, not even close, and to put down millions of other women who are far more beautiful is, in my opinion, one of the most criminal actions of this magazine for idiots.

Then there’s the Sexiest Man Alive. Channing Tatum was it one year, and Maroon 5’s Adam Levine another – neither guy comes close to being sexy, and Adam’s voice is not even remotely good. Maybe for the bullshit type of music his sorry band puts out…! Now I can understand someone like Johnny Depp, but Channing is not sexy at all by my standards and when you throw in something that looks like Dwayne Johnson…all I can do is shake my head.

I don’t know who fills out these surveys but if it’s White America, they damn sure have no taste. Then again, most yuppie ass White people have zero taste anyhow – geeks and nerds for the most part. Any person who follows the lives of celebrities has no life and ought to be reprogrammed immediately so that they can learn to have some self-respect as well as self-esteem, because if you are a fanatic for any celeb, you obviously have a screw loose somewhere. People Magazine is really a waste of paper and money, and those that read it are sad excuses for human beings, practically brainless and totally pathetic. All I can write here is, I feel sorry for you sheeple.

To Kill a Mockingbird

To Kill A Mockingbird is the only novel written by Harper Lee, published in 1960 after several years of rewriting and polishing the manuscript upon the advice of the publisher, J. B. Lippincott and Company. Ms. Lee was born Nelle Harper on 28 April, 1926, in Monroeville, Alabama, the youngest of four children brought into the world by Amasa Coleman and Frances Finch Lee. Ms. Lee attended several educational institutions, including the University of Alabama, where she studied law from 1945 until 1949, and a year at Oxford University. However, she never obtained a degree though she has collected many honorary degrees.

During the 1950s, Ms. Lee worked as an airlines reservations clerk and one year she received, as a Christmas gift from friends, funding that would enable her to take a year off from working so that she could work on a novel. That novel turned out to be To Kill A MockingbirdWhen she first submitted the manuscript to the publisher, she was told that it was a ‘bunch of short stories’ and that she needed to refine the work, put all the little ‘short stories’ together. It took Ms. Lee nearly three years, but she finally completed To Kill A Mockingbird and on July 11, 1960, it was at long last published to almost instant critical acclaim—only two years later, the film of the same title was produced, with Gregory Peck playing Atticus Finch and young Mary Badham cast as clever little Jean Louise ‘Scout’ Finch.

Calpurnia was one of the strongest Black characters in the book, and even she resorted to ‘nigger talk’, as Scout so eloquently put it, around her ‘own people’. This leads the critic to examine the use of the so-called ‘N’ word in the novel. Scout Finch, purportedly a child wise beyond her years, uses the word frequently and without much forethought. Jem, a boy, never uses the word and that is something that struck this critic as being odd—in my own experience, I have heard the word ‘nigger’ used by a white female only three times (three different girls under the age of 18), while I’ve heard at least a dozen white boys and men use the word. And yes, the connotations are ugly and hearing it used does make one’s blood boil and the hatred does flow…

However, one can look over how many times the ‘N’ word is used in this novel set during the 1930s in the Deep South (a small Alabama town of all places) when compared with how many novels in which Stephen King, a modern writer who lives in Maine, a state that is over 95% White, uses the ‘N’ word, or some other ugly slur against Blacks…even when there is no cause to do so. The language of the time (1930s) and place (Deep South) has to be considered when examining the use of the word ‘nigger’ in To Kill A Mockingbird. Blacks were routinely referred to as ‘niggers’ right to their faces, as well as ‘darkies’, ‘nigras’, ‘coons’ and called by their first names, while they had to ‘Yes, ma’am’ and ‘No, sir’ the Whites, even those that were their junior. While this critic would not say that Ms. Lee had total empathy for the plight of the Negro, as we then called (or ‘Colored’), she did seem to understand enough to be able to write the courtroom scene where poor Tom Robinson had to endure the sneering countenance of the prosecutor, Mr. Gilmer. Tom is clearly afraid for his life, as any Black man had a right to be in those days of the wild-eyed, bloodthirsty lynch mob, and Mr. Gilmer’s attitude was surely one of a condescending bigot.

There are many motifs running through the work, not just the image of the little mockingbird but that of childhood innocence lost, of Southern small-town life during the Great Depression, of racism, poor Whites versus those more well off, the mentally ill, and interracial relationships (as of Ms. DuBose and her colored maid, and Mr. Dolphus Raymond with his rumored Black wife and brood of ‘mixed chillun’). The mockingbird theme clearly applies to both Tom Robinson, accused of raping a poor White woman whom he’d helped out with chores from time to time, and Boo Radley, shunned because he is rumored to be addled in the brain, a pitiful creature that eats squirrels and does weird things by the light of the full moon.

Many reviewers found fault with the prose style, which they stated was more of an adult’s than a six-year old child’s, and even a precocious child as Scout Finch. Phoebe Low Adams (Atlantic Monthly) wrote that ‘It is frankly and completely impossible, being told in the first person by a six-year-old girl with the prose style of a well-educated adult.’ However, at the very beginning of the novel, Ms. Lee informs us that the entire work is the recollection of the adult Jean Louise Finch, looking back on a few turbulent years of her childhood.

Some of the reviewers tend to feel that Ms. Lee’s novel is mainly one about growing up in the Depression-era South, and not a story of racial injustice at all. I tend to agree with that particular outlook. When I first read To Kill A Mockingbird, I was sixteen and had to review the story (as well as the movie) for English class. I found it a difficult read at the time, since at that age I was more or less into V. C. Andrews and Harlequin romances—what many term ‘trashy novels’–than I was literature, but the film engaged my interest and I did receive an ‘A’ on the paper that I wrote. At that time, I thought of the book as being more about Jem’s and Scout’s childhood than one of social inequality; that judgment still holds true today, more than twenty years later. The book is extremely interesting to me and clearly defines the relationships between the haves and the have-nots, the more affluent Whites and the Blacks, the poor Whites and the Blacks, and even the ‘normal’ Whites and the ‘abnormal’ Whites—as in the case of Boo Radley. I have read the novel at least thirty times since that first reading, and I never grow tired of the children’s adventures with Dill during the summer months (Dill is actually one of my favorite characters), bright little Scout’s problems in school, and Miss Maudie Atkinson’s bit parts (Miss Maudie definitely had some sympathies toward the plight of the Negro).

All in all, I felt that this novel was well-written, and while some of the words may cause many readers whose vocabulary isn’t very large to go rushing off in search of a dictionary, I find it clear to understand. It is not a child’s book, as Ms. O’Conner put it. It is a book about children, yes, but the novels obviously has some appeal to adults; in fact, it is really a book to be read by those over the age of fourteen…read and dissected and critiqued. It makes one think. Imagine how the United States would be today if we still lived in such rather primitive times? Imagine how the Deep South would be if Jim Crow yet reigned and Blacks had their ‘place’ and Whites had theirs? Imagine how life would be if Emmett Till had not died at the hands of two white racists, thus pushing the Civil Rights movement into the faces of the very people who benefited most from those dreadful segregation laws?

I believe that everyone should read To Kill a Mockingbird at least once. (I wrote this essay, edited for my blog, several years ago for a college literature class. A second novel of Ms. Lee’s has since been published but it was slammed harder by most critics than her first in its day. Ms. Lee passed away 19 February 2016. May she rest in peace.)

Homosexual Violence

According to reports from the Centers for Disease Control, those involved in ‘alternative’ lifestyles are far more likely to be the victims of violence than heterosexuals, for instance. Of course, the Rainbow Nation refutes the findings even though the survey participants came from varied sexual backgrounds. The following data is from the 2010 published results of the CDC’s National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey.

Sexual minority respondents reported levels of intimate partner violence at rates equal to or higher than those of heterosexuals.

 

• Forty-four percent of lesbian women, 61% of bisexual women, and 35% of heterosexual women experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime. 

• Twenty-six percent of gay men, 37% of bisexual men, and 29% of heterosexual men experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner at some point in their lifetime. 

• Approximately 1 in 5 bisexual women (22%) and nearly 1 in 10 heterosexual women (9%) have been raped by an intimate partner in their lifetime.

 

Rates of some form of sexual violence were higher among lesbian women, gay men, and bisexual women and men compared to heterosexual women and men. 

• Approximately 1 in 8 lesbian women (13%), nearly half of bisexual women (46%), and 1 in 6 heterosexual women (17%) have been raped in their lifetime. This translates to an estimated 214,000 lesbian women, 1.5 million bisexual women, and 19 million heterosexual women. 

• Four in 10 gay men (40%), nearly half of bisexual men (47%), and 1 in 5 heterosexual men (21%) have experienced SV other than rape in their lifetime. This translates into nearly 1.1 million gay men, 903,000 bisexual men, and 21.6 million heterosexual men.

From the results, the CDC has concluded that far more gay women than gay men experience violence in their relationships, and that bisexual men report more violent behavior such as stalking and rape, than do exclusively homosexual men. There is also the deduction that the reason so many women and men choose a gay lifestyle is because they were molested as children by members of the opposite sex. I have personally known people who were molested by family members, all of them women – with brothers, uncles, and even once a grandfather, who were their molesters. All women lived as lesbians, mostly with ‘studs’ – women that strongly resemble men – as their partners.

But, also according to the CDC’s site showing the results of the survey and what they possibly mean for homosexual violence –

However, despite the numbers indicating otherwise, the homosexual activist organization  Human Rights Campaign (HRC) claims that “poverty, stigma, and marginalization” are the cause of sexual violence.

National Center for Lesbian Rights Reproductive Justice Fellow Lauren Paulk admits that these issues have existed within the LGBT community and have largely gone ignored even among the members of that community.

The comments on the CDC’s article are pretty revealing, and mostly truthful. I must agree that there exists a great deal of violence within the Rainbow Nation – while they may march in their Gay Pride parades and make their unnatural lifestyles appear ‘gay’ and ‘jolly’ and ‘happy’, most of those people are anything but and I write from experience, having known & worked around several gays in my lifetime. The LGBT community loves to point the finger at us straight people and proclaim that we are violent against them…yet how about the violence that exists within their own community? How about all the atrocities committed by homosexual serial killers, for example? I believe that homosexuality is a sickness that never should have been removed from the DSM.

Liberals: Stop Being Sore Losers!

Have the Democratic Party and its followers stopped whining yet? I haven’t heard or read anything about protests or riots or Trump supporters being ‘beat down’ lately, but that doesn’t mean the insane violence isn’t going on still. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a Trumpet – my term for Donald’s usually racist fans – but I am not a believer in the Far Left either. I am more middle of the road as far as my political leanings, but that is neither here nor there. Let’s write about the election result protesters.

Apparently, a recount of the election results is underway because the Green Party of Wisconsin is concerned that there were discrepancies in voting due to electronic voting being used in some areas, whilst paper ballots were used in others. Trump has accused Jill Stein, Green Party candidate who wasn’t even on the ballot in many states, of using a recount as a ploy in order to rake in millions. But Stein claims that the monies, some 5 million, were placed in a ‘dedicated account’ that can be used only for the recount.

Trump tweeted that even Hillary Clinton has conceded the win to him, and that ‘the people have spoken’ – which is what I have been thinking myself since I learned the results of the election. The people voted, they chose Donald Trump, and for those who decided to sit this election out…well, you really have no reason to gripe and bitch and cry about Trump’s triumph as you are part of the reason he’s going to be inaugurated on 20 January 2017.

“Hillary Clinton conceded the election when she called me just prior to the victory speech and after the results were in. Nothing will change,” Trump tweeted.

However, I have discovered that Clinton herself has joined the recount crowd, not surprising since she took her loss so bitterly, with much weeping and gnashing of teeth. I think these women should just accept the fact that Donald is going to the White House and learn to live with that fact. I have. The same goes for all the other pissed off Liberals and Democrats out there. 

In other news: Trump is now accusing several states of voter fraud! I’m not sure what’s wrong with the guy, but he seems to think that illegal aliens can actually vote. Evidently, this is a widely believed misconception with the Far Right, people so bigoted and narrow minded that they can’t see the fork in the road even when they stumble upon it.

Serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California – so why isn’t the media reporting on this? Serious bias – big problem!

“In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally,” wrote Trump. “It would have been much easier for me to win the so-called popular vote than the Electoral College in that I would only campaign in 3 or 4 states instead of the 15 states that I visited. I would have won even more easily and convincingly (but smaller states are forgotten)!”

The Manson Family

Back in the late 60s, there arose from the hippy-filled streets of the Haight-Ashbury a man with a terrible vision. Ex con and illegitimate son of a teenage prostitute – Kathleen Maddox – and, supposedly, a man named Colonel Walker Scott, Charles Milles Manson (he took his stepfather William Manson’s surname) was recently released from a stint in prison – his usual abode – and ready for action anywhere he could find it. He particularly desired a record deal and set about his goal with a single-minded determination that netted him a few songs recorded by the Beach Boys no less.

Enthralled by redheads, apparently Manson hooked up with Mary Brunner and within a few months, was surrounded by slutty women from all backgrounds, mostly the middle class. What they saw in this wide-nose, criminal runt astonishes me even to this day, but to each her own. At any rate, Charlie boy got hold of a bus which he and his followers outfitted in grand hippie fashion, before taking off for other states but typically staying within a couple hundred mile radius of California, to which they returned eventually. Males began flocking to Manson’s little clan, lured by the thought of endless sex and various hallucinogenic drugs. Before long, the group had expanded to a couple dozen members.

This group, in due course to be known as the Manson Family or simply the Family, had only been together for a few years when Manson began his White Album-inspired indoctrination of a racial war that would take place when Blacks grew tired of their mistreatment at the hands of Whites. Manson believed – or pretended to feel – that the Beatles were the 4 Angels of the Book of Revelation and that their so-called White Album was directed at him and his devotees. When ‘Blackie’ had not started this race war with ‘Whitey’ by a certain time, Manson took it upon himself to show Blackie the way, and this is one reason the Tate-LaBianca murders took place. Another reason was merely that Charlie boy wanted to get back at the Establishment that had rejected him and his music.

Victims of the Manson Family

Sharon Tate, Jay Sebring, Abigail Folger, Wojciech Frykowski, and Steve Parent were slaughtered on the infamous night of August 9, 1969, when I was still a fetus in my mother’s womb. This is probably one of the reasons I cannot get over the brutal killing of Sharon and her unborn son, who would be the same age as I am now (or rather, he would already have turned 47 because he would have been born a few months before I was in January 1970). Manson adherents Charles ‘Tex’ Watson, now dead Susan Atkins, and Patricia Krenwinkel committed the unspeakable acts. Linda Kasabian served as the getaway car driver and lookout.

The very next night, Charlie Boy decided that he had to ‘show them how it was done’ because the Tate murders had gone so messily, and after having Linda cruise the affluent neighborhoods of LA, chose the home of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca as the scene of their second murder rampage a la Helter Skelter. Accompanied by the killers from the previous night, along with Leslie Van Houten and Clem Tufts. Tex, Patricia, and Leslie were left at the house with strict orders to not the victim know that they would be killed, and the others vanished into the night.

It is a sorrowful testament to the gullibility of the human mind that there are Manson fans all over the globe. How anyone could worship this uneducated, exploitative, unattractive felon is astounding but there are sheeple and there are people. When I first heard of the Manson murders, I was a child riding in a car at night and hearing about a group of people breaking into a house and butchering everyone inside gave me nightmares. Then I read Helter Skelter – also The Family – and I wanted to learn ‘why’. Why would Charles Watson, Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel, and Leslie Van Houten commit murder at the command of a nobody who didn’t even know his own father? What was wrong with these young people?

Today, if such a crime occurred, I would not be as horrified. I have become oh so jaded to the horrors that we humans inflict upon each other. On the other hand, I would not fall to my knees in homage to the killers either. This is what happened with Charles Manson and his slavish devotees…and it is also what’s happened with a lot of sheeple out there. Too bad Charlie boy is still alive and well at 82. They say evil lives long, and it’s true that a great many wicked individuals tend to have long lives. Unfortunately.

People We Wish Would Disappear

There are some people who are so annoying that just knowing they breathe the same air as you do irks the hell out of you. Then there are those other irritating bastards and bitches whose faces you keep seeing on TV or in magazines and movies (even though some of them can’t even act), whose voices you keep hearing on the radio (though their music sucks and they can’t sing a note, which goes for probably 99% of the so-called singers in these horrible times), and you just wish they would vanish from the face of the earth.

Join the effing club, mate!

This post is to dishonor those infuriating mo’fos we get so damn sick and tired of…assholes like a certain Black rapper/singer come to mind instantly,,,and reality star shits who would ordinarily not ever have their names known by anyone outside their immediate family and local law enforcement…
