REVIEW/AMG Joe Viglione

This solo album from Fleetwood Mac singer/songwriter Daniel David Kirwan has the future producer for Human League and Buzzcocks, Martin Rushent, utilizing those skills here, as well as engineering.

The sound is crystal clear, and a feather in the cap for Rushent as well as Kirwan. It starts off with an uncharacteristic “Ram Jam City,” which has more Lindsey Buckingham sounds than one would expect, especially since the two guitarists come from two different musical worlds.

“Odds and Ends” is more lighthearted, the kind of music Paul McCartney toyed with on The White Album’s “Rocky Raccoon.” What Second Chapter immediately sets forth is the importance of Kirwan as a pop artist, and how, despite Fleetwood Mac’s success after he left, his sounds could still have been beneficial to that supergroup. “Hot Summers Day” is a fine example of that, a beautiful song that could offset Buckingham’s gritty ramblings. It would have made a nice counterpoint as Stevie Nicks complemented Christine McVie’s tunes with her adventures, bringing an important change of pace to that popular band’s hits. The jacket looks like a dusty old family album-style book holding Kirwan’s Second Chapter. And the music reflects that old-world feel in titles like “Skip a Dee Doo” and “Falling in Love with You.”

Three of the best songs on this excellent outing are “Love Can Always Bring You Happiness,” “Second Chapter,” and a sleepy and beautiful number called “Silver Streams.” Kirwan’s tune is haunting as well with its lilting “all you need is love to show you the way from here” chorus. As on a follow-up album, he tends to sound a little like the group America, the vocals with that same America tone and warmth. They very well could have covered “Silver Stream” or “Cascades,” the album’s final track.

This material was crafted right in the middle of America’s run of hits, and maybe they should have replaced Dan Peek with Dan D. Kirwan? The artist’s three solo discs cut in the ’70s make for a very pleasant and thought-provoking listening experience, and that this collection is so good only shows he kicked his departure from the big band off with a vengeance.

And here we have a radically styled millipede of a grande size. Maybe a scoche bigger than his or her forest-mate just above, for this nifty critter lives in close proximity to the one above.

At the smaller sizes I saw these images at before I thought the yellow features were just dots but now I see they are cones. Must make it look both unappetizing and too much trouble to eat.

Published on Feb 26, 2016

Part 2 of 6: “Entering the Temple Through Sacred Geometry” Randall shares quotes from the great teachers including Protagoras’ “Man is the measure of all things” as related to the Divine Proportion, and from a 400+ year old Masonic lecture; addresses the symbolic use of the ‘Square and Compasses’ in ancient art with Fu Hsi and Nu Qua; references to the Great Architect of the Universe…

Randall Carlson is the man when it comes to interpretation of the geologic evidence left behind by the planet-wrenching cataclysm that happened a mere 12,900 years ago, give or take a 100 or so.

There is simply so much evidence on a world-wide basis that directly points to this event… and not stories… real physical evidence written into the surface of the earth.

I long to know about who came before and what they did. It is a nearly impossible dream in our current state. There remain only rare fleeting glimpses… unless we do some incredibly major digging in Bolivia, Peru, Mexico and the Middle East. Somehow it can be doubted that anything like that sort of project will occur without human society going fully over to the good side first. What little has been done has shown some truly amazing structures. The deeper you go, the more incredible the discoveries.

Hugh Newman: Forgotten Stones – Secrets of the Megalithic Quarries FULL LECTURE

MegalithomaniaUK
Published on Nov 18, 2017

Is there an ancient tradition of ‘the birthplace of the temple’, or the quarry where the stones that make up megalithic temples came from? Are megalithic quarries actually ‘sacred sites’? Hugh has investigated several of these quarries and realised the megalith builders may have passed down a very ancient tradition, through multiple generations, that was part of a ritual technique that was seen to bring the stones to ‘life’ and imbue them with ‘power’, as well as leaving clues to future generations as to how they worked, quarried and moved these stones. Modern Freemasons and tribal societies still have access to this knowledge, but now in a more ritualized form. As we’ll see as we survey these sites worldwide, it quickly appears that the ancients deliberately left ‘signatures’, incorporating abstract style, technique, relief carvings, and even hidden geometry, metrology, geodesy and number systems. These covert practices lasted for thousands of years and may give a clue into their mindset and spiritual purpose.

Hugh Newman is an author, conference organiser, world explorer, tour host, and Megalithomaniac. As well as organising the Megalithomania conferences, he has spoken at events in the UK, Malta, France, Peru, Egypt, Bosnia and North America. He has appeared on BBC TV, Sky Channel 200, Bosnian TV and the History Channel in the last four seasons of ‘Ancient Aliens’, and recently in ‘Search for the Lost Giants’. He is author of a book about the North American Giants with Jim Vieira, and has published four articles about the secrets of the megalithic quarries online. hughnewman.co.uk

The quarries. Yes! Newman is onto something as it seems somewhat obvious that the quarry is vital to the existence of any sizable stone anything.

I, for one, have always been impressed by how far away quarries can sometimes be from the art or structure. And the bigger the stones and greater the distance the more wonderful it is. The Romans were fab at humping gynormous rocks around… think intercontinental. … Dig? But we are interested in those that came long before the Romans even existed, for those folks had skills that fall squarely into Sir Arthur C. Clarke’s “magic” category.

As you will be able to imagine after this vid.

There’s also a nice tribute to the late and inimitable John Michell near the top, a man I am proud to call friend.

Well, enjoy

Seriously.

The world is certifiably insane. Has been for a while now.

Possibly even comes under some as yet undiscovered and unnamed condition even more tragic than insanity.

It’s somewhat like this out there:

oi

Some things seem o be getting better… but some things are definitely tanking.

I have senior moments with an alarming frequency and my body is crapping out right quick. And my eyes… oh Lord have mercy on my eyes.

Trying to finish up the hedge trimming, i.e. cart away the debris today and I’m almost done but I had to come in after an awfully brief time which surprised me because I chopped it all in one go pretty much and it was a full 20 degrees more out there then than now.

Quite disconcerting. Quite.

oi

oi

oi

Trying so hard to ignore what my mind keeps telling me. If I do not, bad things invariably happen due to my profound social stupidity. I have no clue. Not even a hint of a trace of a rumor of a clue.

Yup, yup. But today, which is well after the words above the words in the previous paragraph, is mentally painful. God damn demons.  Note, we shall, that this is despite the great time that was spent on the phone this morning with the Angel of the North. Which involved music and audio, even! Far from normal.

Yesterday the aforementioned yard cleanup occurred with past debris included and the front lawn got mowed. A new muffler was then ordered, along with some other stuff, after it finally hit the ground halfway through. I do not have the ability in my current state to grow veg instead of grass, but I think that would be really neat. Something to ponder. Just had a vision of those awesome old manual mowers … those things make the coolest noise. Worth it just for that, ya know?

Okay, there’s more but if I don’t post it will languish in the drafts bin for countless eons… so…

ETA: Doh! During the decapitation of the thousands of helpless green beings, Local Angel appeared, as if by wizardry, for an exceptionally brief encounter which was prime for it’s duration.

I had an encounter with a very very large bird. Looked like an eagle but bigger. I had told the park ranger about it when I was leaving the National Park. They said it was probably a Thunderbird. I was told that they can be seen during late summer in the Olympic National Park, from time to time. I’ve been trying to get a picture of one ever since I saw it, but no luck yet (maybe this year, who knows) …

This is part of a reply in a thread about an unusual Thunderbird sighting in Arizona.

Calling all cryptozoologists!

I stumbled across this juicy little tidbit quite by accident the other evening via an interesting and new-to-me blog called bizarre creatures which had a December 2007 post called gobi desert creature which led to another interesting blog called Dreaming Of Danzan Ravjaa. The tagline reads: “An American Buddhist Monk in and out of Mongolia: Religion, Culture, History and Birdlife.” In a post from September 2007, we read:

I need a day or two to edit several hundred photographs, recall and refine details, and just process. But rest assured, I’ll share as much as I can this week, undoubtedly over several posts.

But in the meantime, what in the hell are these?

weird gobi creature

weird gobi creature

weird gobi creature

On the first day’s drive, we happened upon a pea-green, brackish pond, along the edges of which hundreds of these bizarre creatures were scuttling about and fighting whenever they encountered each other. I recalled at once the horseshoe crabs I used to find in childhood visits to Long Island, tales of the Mongolian Death Worm, and the hideous tracking robot that burrowed into Neo’s bellybutton in The Matrix. They’re about three inches long, and about 300 million years out of place. Please forward to friends who may be zoologists; I have no idea where to even begin researching what these are and how they came to be in a small pond smack in the middle of the Gobi Desert. I just stood there watching them, my face locked somewhere between a scowl and a gawp, contemplating karma until summoned back into the car.

Neither blog has heard one single peep from anyone since they posted in 2007.

That’s terriblecan we do better?

Patrick Stevenson – Bass

Shaw Davis is quickly becoming an artist to watch in Contemporary Blues-Rock.  He’s a fast and flashy player whose approach rests equally on technical assurance and musical intelligence.

Born April 4, 1995, the young guitarist has burst his way onto the Blues-Rock scene and is already known for his raw and emotional style.  Backed by long-time friend, drummer Bobby Van Stone and bassist Patrick Stevenson, Shaw Davis & The Black Ties feature their own brand of Psychedelic Blues-Rock that continues to win over fans and crowds of all ages.

Formed May of 2016 out of Pompano Beach, Florida, the young power trio made multiple appearances on Blues Radio International and has been featured in South Florida Music Magazine for their crowd pleasing performances.

The group released their debut album on June 14, 2017 and played a sold-out release concert at The Funky Biscuit in Boca Raton, Florida.  The album has been receiving steady airplay on blues/rock radio stations in the United States as well as the UK.

New to me via Ray Edling!

This kid is great! He obviously understands the Blues and what it’s all about.

Which is great news for the future.

Eulogy For Clare

Clarinta Elda Elizabeth Moore
(aka Clare P. and Clarita)
May 12, 1922 – November 16, 2017

Growing up I thought of Aunt Clare as that happy lady who came over a lot, was my
Aunt and loved to pinch my cheek really hard, call me an embarrassing name and give
me tons of presents. She’d always be sure to remind us to never say nine but instead to
say ni-yun, so people would be sure to understand what we meant. That came from
being a teacher for Ma Bell, teaching all the girls how to be operators. She did that at
least two, maybe three decades…a lady not afraid to try new things.

Now I see her more as The Giver, The Helper. Always giving. To the Indians
especially, others,too. But wait…

She always brought tons of food, too, remember?

A passion for food took root in Clare early on… she’d tell stories of behind the scenes
happenings in the kitchens of her clients… when she was twelve years old. She was a
pro that early because she stepped up in support of her family. Her dad had been
called to the Lord very early on, you see. She took that support as a mission to heart…
to her Soul and kept at it right up to her last day here. That is so beautiful a thing.

But the food…

She loved food and cooking and seeing to it that every single person there; and
sometimes there were quite a lot; wound up stuffed and happy. I was always amazed at
how much food she could make on a moment’s notice.

Holidays always saw everyone pounding pound after pound of perfect pasta sarde,
serious shrimp cocktails, delicious Dolly breads for Easter, astounding apple pies and
of course, her glorious Baked Beans, which define the phrase “indescribably
delicious.” They are one of those treasures of a lifetime that simply can never be
duplicated, for not a one of us has that God-given magical touch.

Clare’s devotion to family especially her siblings was powerful right to her dying day.
There’s Orlando, who everyone called Tim, Anita and Louise, Evalyn and Lena, her
parents, husbands Joe Greco and Clay Moore, cousins, especially Bobby Morrell, as
well as friends she adored… with very deeply felt emotions for each and every one.

Her heartthrobs were Erroll Flynn and Randolph Scott and the music was by Gene
Autry, the Sons of the Pioneers and our very own Uncle Tim, who could hold his own
with those guys for sure.

Always the traveler, the adventurer, Clare would go out West, ride horses, stay at dude
ranches and just be toolin’ around in her Model A Ford, gobbling up life with gusto. She
must have been quite something back in the day.

Clare was never afraid to tackle any issue in order to keep us safe and secure no matter
where she was or what her situation was. Clare was likewise never afraid to spread her
love as far as she could with the hotspot being her family. She did these things with
remarkable success and her example lives on as inspiration for all of us to follow.

She taught me so much in those last few years. Taught me without even knowing she
was… about dealing with my profound sadness and inner anger and especially about
what love really is. And that is nothing less than giving solace and comfort, protection
and security with no expectation of return. But even in her final days she managed to
give me clear messages of love in return. Truly a remarkable lady.

Fare thee well, my dear Aunt Clare – I know you are up in heaven now, watching
over us, keeping us safe. I feel you here sometimes.

Enjoy your new journey knowing that you will live in love in our hearts forever.

— Iggy Makarevich

I read that today at Clare’s funeral. Made it to the end in one shot with just a couple of quavers toward the end! Thank you to those who hlped me get to where I could do that.

It was a small, intimate and lovely ceremony and just as I had hoped it would be. The crowd was small but the people there were the right people and that was definitely a welcome thing. All my love to everyone that was there. That goes for the man from St. Mary, too, who I sadly forgot to exchange names with. He was so pleasant, which was a good result as I had no clue what to expect.

I was blessed to have my dear friend Andy Raynor, (the holiest person I’ve ever met), do the interface with the divine. She is so good at that and then there came the fabulous, unaccompanied Amazing Grace sung by my dear cousin Jamie Petrone which gave us the sweet, soulful sound we needed at just the right time. Quite a few commented how great it was. Jamie is so inspiring.

Such wonderful family and friends … made me feel at ease and loved.

And then … wouldn’t ya know it…

There was a bit of paranormal in it, too, thank God, as Aunt Clare was there (!!!) in the form of a tiny bird seated at the peak of a nearby pointed monolith watching us and at just the right time chirped at us directly and then flew off, fortunately right after I got in a rockin’ thumbs up!

I will treasure it always.

Alien Artifacts Recovered from Crashed UFOs are NOT of This World

UAMN TV
Published on Mar 20, 2018

With a new focus on physical proof via the scientific study of known UFO crash artifacts, Jacques Vallée has been organizing isotopic and elemental analysis of evidence. Some of the samples Vallée had tested were found to be outside of the terrestrial norm, and so pure in their form that they appear to be fabricated in a method not possible on Earth.

There are many remarkable alien artifacts that have been hidden away in secret vaults, they could re-write history as we know it. These artifacts are highly controversial and need to be tested.  We are constantly finding new ufo artifacts that defy our current understanding of the universe.

Jacques has always been a hero… an astronomer, an actual scientist (as opposed to a claimed one), a computer communications visionary, buds with Hynek and a writer of tomes that are intriguing on many levels. He’s not at all like your usual ufologist. And that’s good. Real good.

1ofthe9 noted and I agree that Its pretty strange and out of character for him to do this imho.

Hoping he’s just happy about findings, seems to be. It is true that he doesn’t do this sort of thing anymore as a rule. But I will give him room … we owe him a tonne.

Finally!

In the world we live in, strange things happen. Some, of course, are stranger than others.

You’d have to go a long way to find a phenomenon stranger than Spontaneous Human Combustion. That moniker definitely does not do it justice as it is far weirder than the visualization one might get from just those three words.

I’d been hoping the guys at The Existence of Strange Things; my buds Sean Forker, Lon Strickler and Butch Witkowski; would get Larry Arnold on. He is – without question – the world’s foremost authority on this subject.

He used to emcee most of the International Fortean Organization conferences I used to go to and do sound for. He is a good and honest man who really is passionate about finding out just what is going on.

This is a real phenomenon… I have seen the photos and listened to Larry live several times. I have seen the behind the scenes videos and seen the photos taken at the tragic events. It’s real, folks. And it’s mind bogglingly weird.

I am glad and relieved that Larry is staying the course… if only the firefighting, medical and scientific communities would lend a hand.

Hippie Jack brings hope and help to “invisible people”
Latest Episode

Humankind Stories added a new episode.

December 11, 2017

Many of them don’t have power, water, or even food. But they have Hippie Jack and Mrs. Hippie, beacons of hope in a rainbow-colored bus.

Frank has found and sent a treasure.

This is love. Real, true, actual love. That is what this is. People like these two are needed for the future. Assuming of course that it might be more of a pleasant path than if we took on an action-packed Mad Max type of existence.

If the ratio of good people is high enough, the world can be a very nice place. I am certain that it has been so in the past, although probably not as a true living memory … just legend, like Shangri La…

Which was likely quite real.

We shall see.

My friend, who told me this guy was profound, suggested I look him up to put more meat on the intended healing which started with Lama Yeshe. That is kind of significant, methinks. Seeing as I was still… grumpy.

So I did. Here are some clips that relate to my demons. There are a bunch to look through, I’m sure yours are there, too.

CHOGYAM TRUNGPA SPEAKS ABOUT LONELINESS & LOVE

Chögyam Trungpa

Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche on loneliness and love from the talk “Loneliness.” A short audio clip from talk six of the Vipashyana Meditation Seminar, September 12, 1974, Karme Choling, Barnet, Vermont.Chögyam Trungpa (February 28, 1939 – April 4, 1987) was a Buddhist meditation master and holder of both the Kagyu and Nyingma lineages, the eleventh Trungpa tülku, a tertön, supreme abbot of the Surmang monasteries, scholar, teacher, poet, artist, and originator of a radical re-presentation of Shambhala vision.

Recognized both by Tibetan Buddhists and by other spiritual practitioners and scholars as a preeminent teacher of Tibetan Buddhism, he was a major, albeit controversial, figure in the dissemination of Tibetan Buddhism to the West, founding Vajradhatu and Naropa University and establishing the Shambhala Training method.

Among his contributions are the translation of a large number of Tibetan texts, the introduction of the Vajrayana teachings to the West, and a presentation of the Buddhadharma largely devoid of ethnic trappings. Regarded as a mahasiddha by many senior lamas, he is seen as having embodied the crazy wisdom (Tib. yeshe chölwa) tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Some of his teaching methods and actions were the topic of controversy during his lifetime and afterwards.

The idea you are awake. Absence of bullshit. Beyond conceptualized mind. Possibilities of all kinds. Clear fantastic space. “That moment where you catch yourself between that and this you begin to realize that who you are is not particularly certain on the spot, but you begin to catch yourself between two points, which is not really two points, it’s one point, which is split already  in two points. You begin to realize there’s this or that possibilities of it, on the other hand there might be some.. But so what? Try to find out. And let has have a good time with that, whatever it is.”

Aggression not in the sense of that you’re angry, you keep on loosing temper. But aggression in the sense of fundamental obstacle. …surrendering, seems to be the only way to overcome aggression.

I think I need to spend more time with this. It might stick.

I wonder if there are any current teachers who have achieved the heights this fella and Lama Yeshe did. Or are just good teachers.

This video is Lama’s introduction to this series and constitute a wonderful explanation of the fundamentals of tantric practice.Please visit us at http://www.LamaYeshe.com

An old friend sent me the first part of this in a valiant attempt to soothe my tattered soul. As regulars may suspect, the demons have gotten some pretty good footholds of late. A playground, they have here.

She did well. as although this fellow has some unusual eye activity and swaying about a bit, which I was advised to look past; his message comes through and he managed to hit on some big ones affecting the comfort level of my stay here on earth. Thank you, dear heart. What the man says makes good common sense and is realistically presented.

I was impressed with the dude and figured part two should be up here as well. And so it is. Enjoy.

Let us have

peace

edit: Oh dear I have learned that Lama Yeshe passed in 1984. He left us with a lot of good teachings, so we should give him a nice, grateful tip o’ the hat!
