"I'm feeling dumber than before""

How I Became Stupid by Martin Page

*I'm astounded by the parade of stupidity on display during this time of an incredibly serious and fact-based global-health pandemic, a loose-cannon idiotic President, more killer cops and race-relation riots circa 1968. 

Without insulting you or your beliefs - if you are reading this and still do not understand the enormous results of all this haphazard behavior - WTF are you thinking? 

Your family and friends are the people most apt to be harmed by a refusal to follow 
the basic laws, rules, morals and precautions. Anything other than basic care and civility is both 
selfish and inhumane.

Most of us are outraged for a myriad of reasons, but violence, racism in all it's forms
and/or ignorance of the offensiveness your words, messages and actions is not an answer or excuse!

 We might come out of this with great sadness, 
yet increased empathy, if we could all just 
smarten the fuck up.

rage on the set resulting in his eventual entry into the where is he now club(?).

Could it have been the wicked world of
 drugs = drink,
the devil's music
and unprotected animation puppet sex?

Meanwhile, the whereabouts of Goliath remain
a mystery and amongst the most famously-unsolved canine cases.

As Far As The Ear Can Hear

Bob Dylan
Van Morrison
Jaimie Brockett
The Beach Boys
Lee "Scratch" Perry & The Whitebellyrats

"Ohhh, this just brings us up to what's happenin' again folks. The Titanic she's sailin' around in between the icebergs. Everybody else is havin' parties. The Jewish people they jumpin' up n' down they tradin' wives n' Cadillacs n' diamonds n' drinkin' booze. Everybody else is hoistin' up land lubbers, battenin' down hatches n' doin' sail things. The First Mate's hangin' over there on the rail havin' himself a little smoke n' diggin' icebergs. And the Captain's out cold on the wheelhouse floor"


*The inspiration that fuels the Deep Listening sessions at RFW
is the lost art of immersing oneself into music without distraction or interruption,
as opposed to it being relegated to background or ambient sounds
(which have a place - just not hear now)!
