We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
She teaches part-time in the university writing program with courses focused on the representation of women and reading hip hop as poetry. Finally, she is a doctoral student in higher education administration with research interests including intersectional analysis of working-class students and faculty and their experiences on campus.
On the See The Stripes website, Carson says he wishes he would have known he was attending a “school on a plantation.” However, he says that even had he been more aware of the southern history of South Carolina school, he still would have chosen to attend the university after he explained his decision to his friends and family.
It only took about a hundred years from the founding of Islam for Muslims to become powerful enough to attempt to fulfill their destiny by trying to take over Europe. Every so often, there is an Islamic resurgence where by violence, they try to assert their dominance. To say what ISIS is trying to do - and doing - had nothing to do with Islam is ridiculous. It seems obvious that whatever the Koran says, it seems pretty easy to interpret it as promoting violence in its name.
I didn't see Eric Clapton, Sir Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Elton John, Brian Wilson, Neil Young, Paul Rogers, Ringo Starr, Pete Townsend, Roger Daltrey, Roger Waters (though he arguably should have made that list) to name several on his list.
Click bait - and horribly inaccurate click bait to boot. While I agree with the Springsteen, Fogerty and Crosby assessment, with respect to Dylan being a plagiarist, I'm reminded that JS Bach lifted passages from Handel, Scarlatti and Pachelbel and the Graun's lifted entire passages from Bach. Kind of like a little musical incest going on if you will. And ideas from from all kinds of sources. If, as claimed, Dylan was a plagiarist, then most musicians are plagiarists because there are only so many combinations of scales that make pleasing sounds.
Garcia was an experimenter and the Dead were a Jam band - there is no denying that. Did it "ruin rock n' roll" - no, its just different form of music done for a different audience - mostly stoners.
Santana a hack - no, no, no. He's just got a hair across because Santana isn't "pure" classic rock. Idiot.
Where he really goes wrong is Frank Zappa. Zappa never considered himself a "rock" musician. He considered himself a musician to be sure, but a musician interested in the mathematics of music, the juxtaposition of sound and rhythm and the nexus points where the musically disparate and seemingly incongruous came together to form pleasant sound scapes. Besides, anybody who could some up with a concept like "Suzy Creamcheese" and Ruben and The Jets ("Cheap Thrills") has to be a genius.
