Cold ashes of an old camp fire
A scrap of cloth caught on a briar
Could these be us? Were we once here?
When did we both disappear?

I hear a voice among the trees
Maybe just the nighttime breeze
Maybe it’s the wild things roaming free
Wild like you, wild like me
Calling now to you and me
We must follow, can’t you see? – come with me

CHORUS:
Forget the city and its false lights
They steal your dreams, they steal your nights
Leave your troubles, your worldly goods
And run with me, run with me
to the dark woods

Footprints in a hidden cave
Mementoes time chose to save
Initials carved in the frost
How did we ever get so lost?

Can’t you see? It’s all so clear
No one else has ever been here
Except for the wild things roaming free
Wild like you, wild like me
Calling now to you and me
And we must follow, can’t you see? – run with me

CHORUS

In the dark we have no fear
In the woods no one can hear
Except for the wild things roaming free
Wild like you, wild like me
Only the wild things, here to see
Wild like you, wild like me

CHORUS

(Lyrics and music: Mary James, Jean James)

Nice and Neat!

And it seems that Mary has developed a signature sound.

This is certainly an excellent thing.

 

 

Beth & Joe – I’d Rather Go Blind – Live in Amsterdam

HartAndBonamassa
Published on May 29, 2015

This video was taken from “Beth Hart & Joe Bonamassa – Live In Amsterdam” DVD and is owned by record label J&R Adventures, LLC, the operator of this channel.

The song “I’d Rather Be Blind” was originally written by Tina Turner Publisher: EMI Blackwood Music Inc. (BMI), EMI Unart Catalog Inc (BMI).

Hot on the heels of their GRAMMY nomination, force-of-nature blues-rock vocalist Beth Hart and guitar hero Joe Bonamassa will deliver Beth Hart & Joe Bonamassa — Live In Amsterdam (DVD/Blu-ray/CD) which is in stores since March 25, 2014. — the very first live experience from one of music’s most powerful female voices and one of the world’s greatest guitar players.

Against the backdrop of the beautiful, historic Koninklijk Theater Carré in Amsterdam, the performance wows with scorching soul covers from the duo’s 2011 debut album Don’t Explain and 2013 follow-up Seesaw, originally made famous by artists such as Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Billie Holiday, Tom Waits, Ray Charles, Donnie Hathaway, Lucinda Williams, Bill Withers, Delaney & Bonnie, Buddy Miles, Tina Turner, Slackwax, Melody Gardot, Nina Simone, and more.

It is beautiful to watch interactions such as this.

Magickal.

 

 

Reblogging from my friend Mike Campbell’s blog, EarhartTruth.wordpress.com, simply because I want more people to see it and learn the truth about what happened to her, a story that came to world attention in 1960 in the Californian press. It was quickly buried and there has been tenaciously relentless suppression even from the first days when it all started.

Smithsonian rejects my comment on Earhart story

By earharttruth on August 6, 2019

As if we need more evidence that Smithsonian magazine is among the vanguard in the U.S. government’s ongoing program of deceit in the Earhart disappearance, the following is submitted for your information.  (Boldface and italics emphasis mine throughout.)

On Aug. 2 a reader sent me the link to the Smithsonian’s July 31, 2019 screed, Why the Much-Publicized Mission to Find Amelia Earhart’s Plane Is Likely to Come Up Empty,” subheaded, “The explorer who discovered the ‘Titanic’ is searching for the lost aviator. A Smithsonian curator doesn’t think he’ll find it.”

Here we have the incompetent advising the accomplished and misguided.  Dorothy Cochran, the Smithsonian’s Air and Space curator, has taken over from Tom Crouch as that institution’s selected mouthpiece about all things Earhart, but this is the same gibberish we heard from Crouch, and will continue to hear from the Smithsonian until Judgment Day.  We know that the famed Bob Ballard, who found the Titanic, is out of his depth in the Earhart search, but we certainly don’t need an overpaid PR hack to tell us why.

smith cover

The January 2015 issue of Smithsonian magazine, with its classic photo of Amelia and the standard shyster hype about “new clues” that aren’t new or clues, but the usual flat-out lies glorified as mainstream “theories.”

The author of the current Smithsonian drivel, one Brigit Katz, writes that “Dorothy Cochran, a curator at the aeronautics department of the Air and Space Museum, doubts that the upcoming expedition to Nikumaroro, will turn up any tangible signs of Earhart’s plane.  It’s highly unlikely, she says, that Earhart and Noonan ever ended up on the island.

Cochran, who in a better world would be arrested for impersonating an Earhart expert, is right about that, but not for any legitimate or coherent reason.  In her government-apologist role, Cochran remains stuck back in July 1937, connected at the hip to the Navy-Coast Guard verdict that the Earhart Electra landed on the water within 120 miles of Howland Island — volumes of evidence to the contrary be damned.

As a trusted, highly placed representative of the U.S. establishment, that’s her story and she’s sticking to it, just as her predecessor so stubbornly did.  But does the reality-challenged Cochran really believe the garbage that she’s forced to disgorge by her masters, given, that is, that she’s ever read anything at all except her marching orders?

The “crashed-and-sank” canard, a natural assumption without a single trace of supporting evidence in 1937, was soon overwhelmed by evidence and events, including the 1944 discovery of the Earhart Electra in a hangar on Saipan, if not long before.  “Crashed and sank” became so ludicrous and untenable by the mid-1980s that it forced the Powers That Be to commandeer the current Earhart lie, the only slightly less ridiculous Nikumaroro theory, dressed up as a “hypothesis,” by its TIGHAR proponents.

Unknown to most, the Nikumaroro fiasco is itself a third-hand idea initially conceived by famed inventor Fred Hooven, who presented his research paper, Amelia Earhart’s Last Flight at the Amelia Earhart Symposium at the Smithsonian Institute’s National Air and Space Museum in June 1982.  Hooven called it the “McKean-Gardner Island landing theory,” but was later convinced by Fred Goerner that Amelia and Fred Noonan could not have possibly landed there.  (See Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last, pages 56, 303 and 304 for more.)

Note also that unlike the National Geographic story touting Ballard’s upcoming visit to Nikumaroro, which mentioned Saipan in passing, the Smithsonian story assiduously avoids anything that hints at the hated truth.

Though Jerry Adler’s January 2015 Smithsonian cover story,Will the Search for Amelia Earhart Ever End?,” attacked and attempted to undermine Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Lastwith a flotilla of lies, at least Smithsonian editors referenced the book along with their litany of falsehoods.  I responded appropriately, with a 5,000-word rebuttal, Smithsonian mag throws “Truth at Last” a bone: Says, “it’s possible . . . Campbell is on to something, that I hope you will take the time to read, if you haven’t already.

cochrane

According to the Smithsonian’s Air and Space Museum’s website, “Dorothy Cochrane curates the collections of general aviation aircraft; flight materiel (specifically personal, business, and utility production aircraft); aerial cameras; and the history of general aviation and women in aviation.”  Not included is the fact that she also spreads government-approved disinformation about the disappearance of Amelia Earhart at every opportunity.

The below was my second of three attempts to post my comment on Aug. 2,  despite being convinced it had no chance for approval:

Why did you delete my below comment, as if I don’t know that you are among the leaders in the campaign to keep the masses ignorant about the truth in the Earhart disappearance.  I think I’ll do a blog post about this. If you change your mind, you can delete this paragraph and post the original as sent.  Fat chance.

The very idea of the “Earhart Mystery” in itself is one of the most enduring lies of the 20th, and now 21st century.  Neither Nikumaroro nor Crashed and Sank have a shred of evidence to support them, while Earhart’s landing at Mili Atoll in the Marshalls and later death on Saipan are supported by mountains of evidence in the forms of eyewitness and witness accounts, letters, documents, and the words of three flag officers — Adm. Chester Nimitz and Generals Graves Erskine and Alexander A. Vandegrift — and much more, attesting to the presence and deaths of Earhart and Fred Noonan on Saipan.

According to my Discus account profile, the above comment was in Pending status until about 7 p.m. Saturday night, Aug. 3, when it unceremoniously disappeared without explanation, as did the others.  But on the afternoon of the next day, Aug. 4, the comments mysteriously showed again as Pending.

Monday, Aug. 5 has now passed and my comment has been pending for four days.  Instead of rejecting my comments outright, the Smithsonian magazine editors have chosen to do nothing, a non-action that seems quite appropriate for these unsavory characters.  While permanent pending status is the same as deletion or rejection, I do wonder how long they’ll wait before actually deleting it — like cowardly thieves hiding and waiting for the coast to clear.  Or could this post shame them into finally approving it?  Not if they have no shame, which has pretty well been established.  Be sure I will keep you updated.

I’m not a lawyer, but it occurs to me that as a publication of the U.S. governmenttheSmithsonian magazine’s editors, by not allowing my comment to stand, are in direct violation of the First Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speechor of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

vandegrift

General Alexander A. Vandegrift, eighteenth commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, confirmed Amelia Earhart’s death on Saipan in an August 1971 letter to Fred Goerner.  Vandegrift wrote that he learned from Marine Gen. Tommy Watson, who commanded the 2nd Marine Division during the assault on Saipan and died in 1966, that “Miss Earhart met her death on Saipan.” (U.S. Marine Corps photo.)

The comment of publisher Doug Westfall, whose Special Books, a vanity press that has historically provided a platform for authors with certifiably crackpot ideas about the Earhart case, was allowed to stand.  This isn’t surprising, since Westfall’s statement is an insipid, meaningless aside, promoting another lunatic fringe theory that only serves to militate against anyone taking legitimate research about the Earhart matter seriously.  The Smithsonian magazine is quite happy to publish comments such as Westfall’s, as it makes their own propaganda sound less absurd:

I whole-heartedly [sic] agree.  They are looking in the wrong place!”  (Salah to Indiana in Raiders of the Lost Arc.)  We published William Snavely’s book, Tracking Amelia Earhart — and he shows how she turned back and splash landed off Buka Island — see the map in this article.  As well, he found a plane.  Smithsonian Magazine published Snavely’s story in the January 2015 issue.  Since then there have been two more dives.

So what?  People go diving all the time.  “He found a plane,” Westfall says, but he doesn’t tell you it wasn’t Earhart’s.  Westfall has always been part of the problem, and neither he nor Snavely even bothered to put Tracking Amelia Earhart on Amazon.com,where 30 million books are available in the world’s largest book marketplace — such is their confidence in their unsellable fish wrapper.  

Lies and Deceit: Thy names are Legion. Thy names are the American Media.

It really is unconscionable. The Smithsonian has managed to strip itself of any integtity it may have held in my heart. To publish horsepoops is simply not on.

If you’ve got an interest youd do well to listen to a great interview with Mike Campbell here. It should go ready to rock, but, if needed it’s item number 46. Highly recommended!

Aloha.

New Finds for Mars Rover, Seven Years After Landing

NASA’s Curiosity rover has come a long way since touching down on Mars seven years ago. It has traveled a total of 13 miles (21 kilometers) and ascended 1,207 feet (368 meters) to its current location. Along the way, Curiosity discovered Mars had the conditions to support microbial life in the ancient past, among other things.

And the rover is far from done, having just drilled its 22nd sample from the Martian surface. It has a few more years before its nuclear power system degrades enough to significantly limit operations. After that, careful budgeting of its power will allow the rover to keep studying the Red Planet.

Curiosity is now halfway through a region scientists call the “clay-bearing unit” on the side of Mount Sharp, inside of Gale Crater. Billions of years ago, there were streams and lakes within the crater. Water altered the sediment deposited within the lakes, leaving behind lots of clay minerals in the region. That clay signal was first detected from space by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) a few years before Curiosity launched.

“This area is one of the reasons we came to Gale Crater,” said Kristen Bennett of the U.S. Geological Survey, one of the co-leads for Curiosity’s clay-unit campaign. “We’ve been studying orbiter images of this area for 10 years, and we’re finally able to take a look up close.”

Rock samples that the rover has drilled here have revealed the highest amounts of clay minerals found during the mission. But Curiosity has detected similarly high amounts of clay on other parts of Mount Sharp, including in areas where MRO didn’t detect clay. That’s led scientists to wonder what is causing the findings from orbit and the surface to differ.

The science team is thinking through possible reasons as to why the clay minerals here stood out to MRO. The rover encountered a “parking lot full of gravel and pebbles” when it first entered the area, said the campaign’s other co-lead, Valerie Fox of Caltech. One idea is that the pebbles are the key: Although the individual pebbles are too small for MRO to see, they may collectively appear to the orbiter as a single clay signal scattered across the area. Dust also settles more readily over flat rocks than it does over the pebbles; that same dust can obscure the signals seen from space. The pebbles were too small for Curiosity to drill into, so the science team is looking for other clues to solve this puzzle.

Curiosity exited the pebble parking lot back in June and started to encounter more complex geologic features. It stopped to take a 360-degree panorama at an outcrop called “Teal Ridge.” More recently, it took detailed images of “Strathdon,” a rock made of dozens of sediment layers that have hardened into a brittle, wavy heap. Unlike the thin, flat layers associated with lake sediments Curiosity has studied, the wavy layers in these features suggest a more dynamic environment. Wind, flowing water or both could have shaped this area.

Both Teal Ridge and Strathdon represent changes in the landscape. “We’re seeing an evolution in the ancient lake environment recorded in these rocks,” said Fox. “It wasn’t just a static lake. It’s helping us move from a simplistic view of Mars going from wet to dry. Instead of a linear process, the history of water was more complicated.”

Curiosity is discovering a richer, more complex story behind the water on Mount Sharp – a process Fox likened to finally being able to read the paragraphs in a book – a dense book, with pages torn out, but a fascinating tale to piece together.

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, leads the Mars Science Laboratory mission that includes Curiosity.

The rovers thrill me no end.

Having grown up with space exploration always in the news, sometimes in the most exciting of ways, any such efforts are almost Holy, being that exploration is in our blood and in our genes, it’s kind of an inevitable given.

I hope it goes on until we land folks there so it can record it.

She sat for twenty minutes in 24-degree weather in a thin jacket while being photographed.
When I complained that my fingers couldn’t move, she said, “It’s not cold.”

LYRICS

Run from your people
Run from your home
What is the matter?
What’s goin’ on?
I see the panic
I hear the howl
Tell me what did they do now

There is blood in the water
There is blood in the water

Where will you go?
I’d like to know
‘Cause I’ve been thinking ’bout cutting out too
I see you still
It’s just a chill
A thought that haunts everything that I do

There is blood in the water
There is blood in the water

A far wind blows
The bones exposed
While I was staring at the ground
All of those fears finally disappeared
How could we forget you now?

There is blood in the water
There is blood in the water
There is blood in the water
There is blood in the water

LYRICS

You got me trained to sit on a stage
Not show my rage for you
You got my love, its not enough
I need to prove it to you

What’s the difference, what’s the difference, what’s the difference in me now?
I can change, I can change, I can change oh tell me how

I’d turn this on you, I’d turn it on you, turn it on you, oh but you’re bulletproof
Turn it on you, I’d turn this on you, turn it on you, but you’re bulletproof

You got my gaze, I’m just a phase,
A shift in your point of view
Your rocks are off, you demagogue,
I’m just someone to talk to

Make me feel something real, I’d fall for your muse
Where’s the spark thru the dark for you light my fuse?
But it’s all about you

I’d turn it on you, turn it on you, I’d turn it on you, but you’re bulletproof
I’d turn it on you, turn it on you, I’d turn it on you, but you’re bulletproof
It’s all about you baby

Broken things, I kick and scream, I’d fall apart to move you
Shot down in vogue, I got the joke, you need me bulletproof

Twisted up and turned out you say I’m crazy now,
You’re bellicose, I loved you so, I’m on my way out

I’d turn it on you, turn it on you, I’d turn it on you, but you’re bulletproof
I’d turn it on you, turn it on you, I’d turn it on you, but you’re bulletproof

“Cripple Creek” on the banjo, by Tracy Newman

Tracy Newman
Published on Aug 11, 2015

In 1965, I did 6 episodes of a public TV series for children called “What’s New.” I presented folk songs from all over the world, and many instruments, to the best of my ability at the time. We shot these episodes at Brooklyn College and Joan Sheppard was the director.

I have posted this before and will again because I love it, the lady is just delightful and it is one of the few renditions out there that get the dang song right!

Another is by Stringbean – that is also posted here – and it was played properly every week on Hee Haw but I can’t find that particular bit on yootoob, despite the many posts from the show on that site. Other than that the searches have been mighty bleak.
