Vigilante Tantrums

H3nry has been chatting about some very interesting items of concern to everyone who loves cyber-surfing–and other things about internet freedom and other freedoms that are of vital concern to the freedom of the imagination. He’s neatly covered a few things simmering in my brain-pan, so I thought I’d like to share his fun little take on those items of concern. Aside: yes, DuckDuckGo is real search engine. It quacks along quite nicely with the clucking hens and cheeky rooster. If you haven’t yet discovered H3nry’s blogcasa, now might be your chance. He has some fun Cool Reads, rants and strolls too. No, not trolls, strolls, as in cyber-strolling. Now where did Mr. Hyde get to?

Friends, Romans, countrymen, and even my fellow psychic explorers who tune in from time to time, I think a chat is somewhat overdue. Today’s controlling archetype seems to be the valiant sentinel chicken and a clucking is in order. Got some stuff on my mind that just might interest you.  In the realm of epidemiology, our friend the sentinel chicken is housed several miles from the outskirts of a population center to indicate potential infectious threats.  Well, it seems to this vagabond toting words, that the infections associated with Consumer Capitalism 2.0 are mental in nature and require identification to facilitate distillation within the crucible of your lives.

Lemme first apologize about the radio silence as every now and again I like to engage my mental cloaking device for a minor reprieve from the information overload. The incessant data delivery is definitely detrimental, even to devotees of the Dewey decimal…

Change Come and Done and Dawning, Revolution Music Theme underway…..

Okay, I picked this Revolution Music Theme and yes, I’m enjoying it, about as much as I did in posts quite a while prior to ever starting Musical Theme posts with Bear. Yeah, there’s more of this Revolution Music Theme on the way as time and computers permit. No way am I done with this theme yet.

In the span of the long term swing of things, some revolutions require more human species time zones than others. Oh, do I have a Tibetan flag? Why yes I do.  This song headlines because its content covers a fair number of the motives for revolutionary action.

Free Tibet Now ~ “That sounds like a revolution.”

Written and performed by Liberation Dakini.

Consider this an ongoing revolution in progress world-wide due to the vast numbers of Tibetans in exile and supporters.

Czech Velvet Revolution 1989 — Guess the song.  No, I’m not going to tell you.

The Revolutions of 1989 – Yes, plural–in case you weren’t paying attention at the time or marooned in a part of the usa which does not concern itself with a damn thing beyond the gravel county line road, the events of 1989 in other parts of the world might have escaped your notice. Or you may not have been born yet, in order to pay attention or to care about paying attention now. A sad but true state of mind affairs for some folks.  Hence, an offering of a very brief historical capsule w/ background music.

Frankly I had never heard this song before or even known of its existence until I was fishing for such songs. The imagery is wonderful. Who wants camo pants when there’s buckskin to be had? Hmm….

I suspect this is a part of American history that does not make it into the educational indoctrination system in the failing public school districts in much of America. Why? Oh do these guys raise issues or do they raise ISSUES?

The San Patricios Battalion

Sung By: David Rovics http://www.davidrovics.com/

SAN PATRICIOS – THE IRISHMEN WHO DIED FOR MEXICO
Saint Patrick’s Battalion, “The San Patricios,” a notable arm of the Mexican Army during the Mexican-American War of 1846-1848.

Dubious about why they were fighting a Catholic country and fed up with mistreatment by their Anglo-Protestant officers, hundreds of Irish, German and other immigrants deserted Taylor’s army and joined forces with Mexico.

Led by Capt. John Riley of Co. Galway, they called themselves the St. Patrick’s Battalion (in Spanish, the San Patricios) and fought against their former comrades in all the major campaigns of the war.

The history of the San Patricios is a woeful tale of angry, bewildered, naive, or calculating young men, from varied backgrounds, who deserted for a myriad of reasons and paid a fearful price.

The San Patricios, in the words of one Mexican general, “deserved the highest praise, because they fought with daring bravery.” But eventually, Mexico surrendered, ceding almost half its territory to the United States.

Each San Patricio who deserted from the US side was interned after the war in Mexico and subsequently given an individual court-martial trial. Many of the Irish were set free, but some paid the ultimate price. Roughly half of the San Patricio defectors who were executed by the US for desertion were Irish

No, I’m not going to tell you the name of the song. Guess or watch the video online to find out. Raspberries for everyone. Both kinds. All kinds.

For the moment…yeah there’s more dawning/coming.  So much change everywhere.

Freedom To Be Free ~ Who Said There Could Be Music?

freedom

being free

is a not a package bought in a store

often fought for

mental, physical, political, social, spiritual, emotional . . .

wars in many forms

outworn hearts torn

open

freedom

if everyone wants to be free

why aren’t we?

Poland’s Dirge  by Chopin

myyellowlabfan

Chopin left Poland around 1830, just before the uprising of the Polish people against the government… This song, which was never meant to be published, was one of the songs that he composed for friends and private occasions, or just for himself… although it was not dated, I think it was about the tragic end to that uprising, when he was afraid for his family and friends still in Poland, and for the Polish people, and their hopes for freedom… Aleksandra Kurzak sings this patriotic song with a lovely legato line and a heartbreaking and exquisite sensitivity to the text and music…
Nelson Goerner is her excellent accompanist.

The words are important – here they are in English

Tree, so free and noble, fast thy leaves are falling!
From the grave a bird with mournful note is calling:
O! Poland misfortune hate thy home o’ertaken,
thy truehearted children from death shall never waken,
Ev’ ry town and village lonely watch is keeping,
Through the fields deserted wander women weeping,
All the sturdy reapers hath the wartime needed,
And the corn, fully ripened drop the grains unheeded

Warsaw saw the banners which our youths unfolded
Free united Poland shall in glorious form be molded.
And they fought in winter, fought when suns were burning
and the autumn found us still for freedom yearning
All in vain for freedom strove our valiant brothers
None were left to comfort Poland’s mourning mothers.

Did they fall in battle? Captive were they taken?
Did they haply wander homeless and forsaken?
Heaven itself hath left us, left us here to languish:
God and man desert us in our bitter anguish

O! unhappy Poland! unhappy Poland! O! Poland, O! Poland,
Were thy sons restored to us, could the brave that perished
Help once more afford us… All dismay and terror
from our breast would vanish, war no more our dear ones
from our homes would banish.

Though by hands of traitors, Poland’s freedom perish,
Still of Poland’s heroes shall the mem’ry flourish..

Shout Out! To KCPT and ALL PBS viewers. Share your mind with KCPT about pulling the film “Citizen Koch” from the air.

Hello KCPT,

We, your viewers,  really want to see “Citizen Koch.” It should not have been pulled off the air. The public has a right to see the documentary and the station should not be fearful of upsetting the Koch brothers.

Public television should be used to inform us; that was the purpose of Independent Lens, was it not?

If you watch PBS, please call for the national showing of this important documentary.

That’s why I signed a petition to KCPT Public Television Station, which says:

“I think the public has a right to view the film “Citizen Koch.” We are requesting you to please show this film. Koch money shouldn’t influence what we can or can’t see aired on our PBS station.”

Will you sign the petition too? Click here to add your name:

The people of Wisconsin have not given up. Why should the rest of us?

 

Raise your voice, Tweet, Facebook and reblog at will. Please help fight media control.

Thanks!

Celebrating John Lennon on KKFI

If you’re a Lennon lover than stream into www.kkfi.org for the Thursday Night Special at 7pm CST–USA. It’s a celebration for solo John Lennon.  Incompletehistory’s posting of “Imagine” on One Earth for All reminded me of this radio program.  While searching for some video for this post I came across this one which has some news footage that includes the incredible Tank Man. If you don’t know who Tank Man is—well, just watch for the segement featuring the young Chinese man facing down a line of tanks.
