    Thinking

    Leonid & Friends is an extremely tight, contemporary jazz-rock band from Moscow ...

    And their cover of this song from 1971 truly epitomes yesterday/today's human dilemma ...


    Dialogue (Part I & II) - Leonid & Friends (Chicago cover)


    Dialogue is a song written by Robert Lamm for the group Chicago and recorded for their album Chicago V (1972) ...

    In Part I, the song's lyrics are a dialogue between two young people with different views. The first person (whose lines are sung by Terry Kath) is very concerned about events of the early 1970s, such as the Vietnam war, starvation, and "repression... closing in around." The second person (whose lines are sung by Peter Cetera) maintains that "everything is fine." The dialogue between the two people is also reflected musically, with Kath's guitar and Cetera's bass feeding off each other. As Part I comes to a close, Kath's character thanks the other character for the talk, saying "you know you really eased my mind/I was troubled by the shapes of things to come." (Kath’s probing questions of Cetera’s character challenge him to think beyond the self-centered, superficial level of his unobservant, stoned existence. Everything is not fine.) Cetera's character response is of gratitude for the eye-opener: "Well, if you had my outlook, your feelings would be numb - you'd always think that everything was fine". But, it is not.

    With the two characters acknowledging the other's position, the song moves to Part II, where more propositive lyrics such as "we can make it better", "we can change the world now" and "we can save the children" are sung by the whole band. In the finale, the music fades away with the band singing a cappella the optimistic appeal "we can make it happen".

    Are you optimistic 'bout the way things are going?
    No, I never ever think of it at all

    Don't you ever worry
    When you see what's going down?

    No, I try to mind my business, that is, no business at all

    When it's time to function as a feeling human being
    Will your bachelor of arts help you get by?

    I hope to study further, a few more years or so
    I also hope to keep a steady high

    Will you try to change things
    Use the power that you have, the power of a million new ideas?

    What is this power you speak of and this need for things to change?
    I always thought that everything was fine

    Don't you feel repression just closing in around?
    No, the campus here is very, very free

    Don't it make you angry the way war is dragging on?
    Well, I hope the president knows what he's into, I don't know

    Don't you ever see the starvation in the city where you live
    All the needless hunger all the needless pain?

    I haven't been there lately, the country is so fine
    But my neighbors don't seem hungry 'cause they haven't got the time

    Thank you for the talk, you know you really eased my mind
    I was troubled by the shapes of things to come

    Well, if you had my outlook your feelings would be numb
    You'd always think that everything was fine

    We can make it better
    We can make it better
    We can make it better
    Yeah Yeah Yeah

    We can change the world now
    We can change the world now
    We can change the world now

    We can save the children
    We can save the children
    We can save the children
    Yeah Yeah Yeah

    We can make it happen
    We can make it happen
    We can make it happen (We can make it happen)

    We can make it happen
    We can make it happen
    We can make it happen

    We can save the children
    We can save the children
    We can save the children
    Yeah Yeah Yeah

    We can make it happen
    We can make it happen
    We can make it happen

    We can make it happen !

    After seeing/reading your posts about clowns I heard a piece on the radio about the group Insane Clown Posse and their followers who are known as juggalos. They are a sort of community. They also wear crazy clown makeup.

    I wonder about the kind of anonymity that imparts. What will they do/say in the clown makeup that they wouldn't in plain face? Just musing...

    And white contact lenses, yes. I've known a guy like that. He was an IRC Operator for a short while at my IRC network at the time, somewhere around 2003-2004.

    He's crazy, though. He's a confirmed schizophrenic, he has ADHD, and he was doing drugs all of the time.

    I was in Walmart one day and there was a guy walking around in a Jason getup, he was with several other normals. My 1st thought was 'wow/wtf'. I was cool, though. I acted as if all was perfectly well.

    Those that follow 'Hiking With Kevin Nealon' might find this video/docu interesting - in regards to the modern history of its wooded hills backdrop for many of the episodes and more importantly for the people and city of Los Angeles ...

    Griffith Park - The Untold History



    At more than 4,500 acres, Griffith Park is one of the largest municipal parks in the United States. Its founder, the controversial and complicated Griffith J. Griffith, donated the land to the city as a public recreation ground for all the people—an ideal that has been challenged over the years. In this episode, visit a Mexican-era adobe within the park boundaries and ride the historic Merry-go-Round, where Griffith’s ideal of equal access was challenged.

    ONE DAY IN ARMENIA | Inside A Little Known Country

    Gabriel Traveler



    A day of traveling in Armenia, a small country in the Caucasus region at the intersection of Europe, Asia and the Middle East. I started the day in Yerevan, the capital city and took a taxi to the small village of Pokr Vedi where I had a guesthouse reserved for two nights. I then walked to the famous Christian monastery of Khor Virap, within sight of Turkey and Mount Ararat, where Noah's Ark landed and an important spiritual and cultural symbol for Armenians. I finished off the day with an amazing feast of Armenian food.

    How do you know that? Please tell me.

    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)
