If we're talking punk-rockabilly-pop fusion, the iconic Annabella Lwin from Bow Wow Wow is by far more interesting, melodic and entertaining than Excene and her drab band. Annabella Lwin was the essential inspiration behind Gwen Stephanie, Excene, and a bunch of other girl-fronted bands up-to-date: https://youtu.be/A-B82bxnudI But really, the most 'unique' angst-ridden performer of that time (probably ever!) was Wendy O Williams (R.I.P.): https://youtu.be/pBd26f1XoyY

(p.s. to Rudy - what are you doing to get the vid embeds to work?  Inquiry minds want to know.)

Very interesting perspective, Rudy. CIA ops certainly reached absurd levels of imagination from way back in the 60's.

Never really explored the depths of TG - I thank you for you insights on their material - I'll keep it in mind next time I get a chance to listen to TG. Being an eclectic listener of music does not make one 'peculiar'. You'll be surprised how many humans share your song list.

Vaguely reminds me of Laura Riding (in a beatnik cafe sort of a way). Thanks

I find the band X overrated - what a bore! Their long-time manager is an old friend of mine and he tried hard to change my view and failed. And Excene reckoning herself a major generational poet is really off-putting. Venice Beach city has one of Excene's stupid poems emblazoned on a public shower wall, surf side. This only brings down the standard of American poetry, imho.

Should we be worried or excited about the direction that humanity is heading towards?

Chu,

How is Jarred Kushner any different or scarier than, for instance, Denis Ross?  The only difference between them is the latter has experience in deep politics and diplomacy.  This means that it's actually bad for israel and for Palestine to have the inexperienced Kushner take on the Sisyphus-esque task of achieving peace between Palestine and israel. 

I actually see the reason behind Trump's choice of Jarred as two pronged:

1- appease his daughter and pay back Jarred for his election loyalties.

2- mollify the minority extremist likudists who supported his election.  It's important to note that most US zionists, left and right are against Trump - witness their ugly and relentless attacks on him in the zionist MSM - only extremist likudists are Donald's pals - so we can say that Donald's victory divided even the jews.

I don't think for a minute that Donald thinks that Jarred is going to be effective and actually deliver "the biggest negotiated deal of the century" to add to Trump's eventual legacy.  I think Donald will go along with Jarred's direction till they hit a massive wall - and hit a wall they are bound to - then the Don would have learned a new thing or two about the ME and he will take it from there.

For sure though, Donald will hit a fork in the road where he will have to choose between making America great again or making greater israel.  My money is on the former, especially if Donald has already given the likudists everything that he could possibly give them.

I will also go as far as saying that even Netanyahu himself is not 100% sure that Donald is THAT malleable.  Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, is 100% certain what Trump will be doing after January 20th.  Not even Trump himself knows - and he won't know till he's got the WH keys and he's read secret presidential documents pertaining to what Empire requires him to deliver during his term - which I believe will be more wealth and not more wars.  Mindful here that every president must put the interests of Empire before those of the Republic.

The worse the zionist that Trump picks for his team, the better for America and for Palestine in the long run.  This is my view.  I'm not concerned at all with the meantime zio dramas and Trump this and Trump that.

I would have been more worried if Trump had picked the infamous Denis Ross, israel's lawyer - cuz that would have indicated 'business as usual' on steroids.
