“Humans from Earth” the ~ We Be Human ~ Theme for Wednesday 13/11/2013

Hello fellow Homo Sapiens.

It’s Sunday in my part of the world. I’m picking a Musical Theme for Wednesday, 13 of November 2013. Everyone interested is invited to join in–either with full length posts or shorter versions or to share your favorite picks one at a time. It’s all cherry coke with a slice of fresh lime on the rim.

I think this little ditty illustrates the Theme I’m reaching for: Humans, as in ‘us’.

Yes, this is open to other treatments in Art of all genres, your own works, and whatever you care and/or dare to dig out of your kitchen mind sink.

Have FUN.

Humans from Earth by T-Bone Burnett

From Wikipedia:

Homo sapiens (Latin: “wise man“) is the scientific name for the human species. Homo is the human genus, which also includes Neanderthals and many other extinct species of hominid; H. sapiens is the only surviving species of the genus Homo. Modern humans are the subspecies Homo sapiens sapiens, which differentiates them from what has been argued to be their direct ancestor, Homo sapiens idaltu .

Hey Johnny, Willow, Bear and Deborah—and other intrigued parties–drop a line for play, pass or chipping in. Cheers. 🙂

 

 

Overweight Wolves? Where? Come on, where are these obese predators?

Come on, show me some wolves too fat to run because they’re overstuffed with so many meals of beef cattle.  I really want to see these monsters of the food chain. Apparently wolves are such a threat to the human food supply that they need to be hunted to the point of extinction yet again–according to cattle ranchers.  Wolves of all ages are under attack from us not so delightfully egocentric humans in Wyoming, Michigan, Montana, Idaho, Wisconsin and Minnesota.  According to Predator Defense, the War on Wolves has commenced with a vengeance since they were removed from the Endangered Species List. Approximately half the wolves in Idaho have been killed–of about 1,000.

So which species is relentlessly destroying the habitat of all living things, including its own, on the planet? Grizzly Bears? Wolverines? Wolves? Nawwww.  Homo sapiens gets the out of balance, eat till you bloat and then some more, selfish, greedy Top Predator Prize. Hey, we’ve even got airplanes and helicopters to fire away at animals from the safety of our  friendly skies. We usually don’t take on other predators face to face if we can avoid it. We’re working on drone warfare so that we don’t even have to look our human targets in the eye ever again. Just send in the Drones. They don’t discriminate at all. They aim to destroy anything programmed into their target range.

The “Good Wolf” community is also on Facebook with some harsh photographs of hunters with their wolf kills. Beautiful images of wolves are also posted on the timeline. (I would post a direct link, but for some unknown reason that is not currently possible.)

If there was a Dangerous Species List we humans would be at the very top. Why do we refuse to share the Earth with other living creatures? Is Homo Sapiens in essence an out of control cancer destroying every other living cell on this planet? What are we going to do about “us”?
