    Enjoy the smooth sounds

    I thought you would all enjoy a blast from the past in the sultry Brazilian sounds of the 1960's. I remember hearing this song as a 4 year old kid in the department stores. Back then, cars were big, there wasn't such thing as an environmentalist, gas was cheap, everything we bought in the stores was made in the United States and the best music came from Brazil. Kick back, relax, floor the gas and enjoy this blast from the past.

    Damn, I remember that world, too...

    I love and respect the natural world; I don't litter and I value preserving natural beauty; that's what used to be called conservationism.

    Then came this "environmentalism" BS... typically peddled by an SmooVee driving suburban shyster type such as Al "full release" Gore.

    You got to admit, the music was far better back then than today. You can't help but smile when watching that vid as well.

    No rap.

    That alone was a night and day difference.

    This was back in the days when "music" had musicians - and singers.

    cRap has neither; just a balloon-lipped, gorilla-faced thug mumbling/shouting doggerel of the crudest sort to the accompaniment of a simplistic, repetitive beat generated by a boom box or some other electronic means.

    In other words, Zulu savagery meets modern technology.

    But certainly not music.

    That's another beautiful collection there. That is real music.

    I'm only 46, but I appreciate the way things were. People think about the 60's as a time of long haired radicals and whatnot, but the old America existed back then. I will remember that time as a period of scientific advancement, an unparalled standard of living, and a period of economic upward mobility. I wish I was born 40 years earlier. I would be so past the shit going on now.

    I remember it, too.

    Whenever I watch the footage of Apollo 11, it literally almost make me cry. The contrast between then and now - civilization and achievement vs. barbarism and shysterism - is just striking...

    A man's greatest mistake is to think he is working for somebody else.
