This happens to be a VERY moving video & one of my personal FAVORITE versions of this song. It sort of puts things into perspective......I hope you enjoy it as much as I do....EXCELLENT JOB CHRIS!!!!
OK...while sitting here at the computer staring at one of my friends Facebook post....I have gotten angrier & angrier....to the point of actually wanting to yell racial slurs at this one "out of touch" person who was "correcting" my friend. Now I am ONLY racist when I need to be. And THIS brings me to the POINT of this whole thing. My friend was posting her OPINION concerning the current President & the whole US Government Shutdown thing. AGAIN...it was her OPINION on it...she even prefaced it by saying that she didn't mean to upset anyone or make anyone mad. As soon as I read her post...I thought "AMEN SISTER" becuase she was spot on with her opinion, then there were a few comments in agreement with her opinion...and BAM here was some guy posting his Democratic bullshit...about how she was not right etc, etc. And then some literally ignorant girl joins in as well as another fellow....the last 2 being black. The black girl does the obvious....twists it into a RACIAL issue. So I did the next best thing....turned off Facebook...to keep me from saying something that I shouldn't.
Opinions are just that...a view that a certain individual has concerning something. YES, it can be argued that some opinions are a much better representation of the truth based on facts or historical information. While, other opinions are clearly nothing short of ignorant & misguided. The problem is that even opinions based on fact & historical info can be "torn arpart" by someone who does NOT share the same view as you. No matter how much you argue or "prove" that your opinion is correct...99% of the time you will fail to change the other's views...so why even bother.
That is one of the BIGGEST problems with Social Media....you cannot even state your OWN opinion on your OWN page without some of your supposed friends & aquaintences doing their best to "correct" you. It's an OPINION. You cannot correct an OPINION. The best you can do is either agree or disagree...NOT write an entire short story as to how your "friend" is wrong. GO FIGURE...It just shows how STUPID & IGNORANT people REALLY ARE!!!! On my page...when I post my views & opinions on things...if I see someone attempting to correct me...most times I don't delete them or their comment or even my post (like some of my friends)...I simply IGNORE their comment...it's sometimes BEST this way...I do it to simply save time...because ultimately it will evolve into some nasty & hateful thread....and there's NO need for that to occur. So I basically tell myself how stupid the person who attempts to "correct" me is & go on about my business. NOW depending on my mood...I reserve the right to argue, which is known to happen on occasion.
And this SHOULD go for your other friends & aquaintenances as well...BE COURTEOUS...if you agree...then show your support...if you do not...then SHUT IT & just don't say anything at all!!!
just something to ponder until next time...bondo
I am sitting here listening to Jimi Hendrix’s “NEW” studio effort “People, Hell & Angels” and while I am sitting here, I am thinking one thing…..Why is there STILL music people have never heard after 43 years. Don’t get me wrong…I am one of the biggest music fans in the land and I am all about hering new &
unreleased songs. BUT…take Jimi for example…during his life, he made 3 records….then in the last 43 years since he died there have been something like 12 “new” studio albums.
With bands like the Grateful Dead, The Doors & Elvis Presley….we have gotten a few unreleased compositions over the years….mostly various compilations & unreleased concerts and shows nowadays. BUT to release a studio album of never before heard songs 43 years after a person died is bizarre at best. My thoughts are to release the stuff…but do it alot sooner after his death. I am sure there are or were diehard fans, no longer alive, who would have LOVED to had the chance to hear these songs before they died.
I don’t know, but it just seems abit odd….I mean..I can understand if some recordings were found hidden someplace and remastered and put out into the peoples’ hands and thats great…but….I am sure greed (to some extent) played a role in all these new records…maybe on the family’s part but definately on the
record companies side. But it worked….and how I know it did…is because I have bought most everything Jimi has released in the past say 20 years.
So in 5-10 years…I would imagine we’ll see yet more “new” recordings…and of course..I will still be buying them…..
But one thing is certain….Jimi Hendrix was & is an extremely talented artist….and I am glad for the music that he has put out….and I will always be excited for the chance to get my paws on more…..
