And NOW, once again, for something completely different: As we near the beginning of Autumn on September 23rd, 2010, it strikes me that to many some things are now “out of season” with the “end” of another summer meteorologically and astronomically.  Therefore, let me hip you to this one thing: whatever you dreamed of happening during this past summer, can still come to pass as the leaves “fall”.  And so, to that point and because I have the musical mind that I do, I dedicate this post to all of us with dreams – may they never be out of season.

The Montclairs were out of St. Louis, Missouri.  At one point their lead singer made a move, and then they put “featuring Phil Perry” on the moniker.  There was also the erroneous assumption that they hailed out of Montclair, New Jersey for a while.   Check out their gear!  Stone cold 1972- style vines! LOL   An Oliver Sain production on the old Paula/Jewel Records label out of Shreveport, LA..  I miss those old classic record labels like “King” or “Chess” and “Checkers”, et al…

I keep trying to “stump the YouTube” but there are apparently other  incredible musical minds out there who have posted stuff like this that you cannot find on vinyl any more and “beat me to the punch” (Marvelettes).  Major props..Bravo!!  Fore the simple answer is that if you didn’t get it done during the hot summer, then you just have to make up for lost time before this year runs-out! And Me and my Ukraine fiancee` Nina, have a lot of making-up for lost time to do whenever we finally are in the same zip code. “Ohhh, Father, PLEEZE!”

yees, my friend, THIS is a rare “two-fer” from yours truly…these guys really SANG…let us bring that back; coach the young “Hip- Hoppers” to take it to the next level and actually SING is my challenge.

Remember, Dreaming Is (never) Out Of Season if we are to have a chance to make them come true!  Does anybody reading this remember this sound?  I’ve got more if you like it…I’m thinking about another group of this era right NOW!

At the time and with more unabated oil in Gulf of Mexico [these modern-day oil barons “have gotten away with too much for too long” a colleague told me yesterday]; a future “ocean” without fish, edible or otherwise, long time air pollution which led to changes in our climates; too many gadgets and devices leading to  less sleep and increased distraction (especially while driving our vehicles – people who “text” while driving are road hazards no matter how “good” you think you are) and slower reactions to what is basic and true to our interpersonal relationships and species as a whole.   All of this makes me want to write traditional letters on PAPER even more and opt out of Facebook (it is useless, ISFAICS).  I still value my LAND line more that the mobile celly device. We were a better ilk without all of this “instant communication” and until we can scramble and unscramble our bodily molecules in order to transport ourselves aka the Star Trek “transporter room”, I’m feeling it all less and less.

Human technology enthusiasts and inventors are increasingly advancing the Robots and machines who will make Man obsolete by the next century at this rate. Convenience is ONE thing, Big Brother intrusion is totally another.  “Sheepole” is a phrase I read the other day on The Scholarly Kitchen’s blog comment page, 17

and describes those among us who just follow blindly every trend, fad or gadget like the zombies in “Night Of The Living Dead”.  “A ‘fembot’ might be nice,” I think to myself on these lonely bachelor nights, “but I worry that ‘it’s’ robotic vagina might short-circuit and trap my real penis in a love-lock that I might have to call the electronic EMS to embarrassingly extricate my chewed member from!”

I’m glad I didn’t become the classroom teacher I thought I’d be while in college, because I’d want to punch a kid’s lights out if another cell phone went off while I’m trying to articulate the cleverness of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.  Yes I’ve heard all the arguments by (especially) mothers who now can keep in  constant contact with their young-uns, but I always come back the “one” : didn’t my generation and those prior to survive without an electronic leash pressed to the ear?  I offer that we became more independent and stronger for the lack thereof as well – but nobody wants to hear that, it is all about convenience, convenience, convenience!!  And these modern parents still  worry about them just as much if not  more because of the play-by-play factor, so what is the advantage? Arrggh!  In yester-year, some things were better left to play themselves out unbeknownst to our parents when we got home.  C’mon, I know you can “testify!”

I am increasingly having that “this the beginning of the end of the world” conversation with people.  Have you had it?  If not, well I am glad you stopped-by for a wake-up call as at the rate things are desintegrating both naturally and having been advanced by “man”, I doubt things will be tolerable for Human Beings one-hundred years from now, few real people outside of government and chilly corporations will have jobs, making me glad I will not be around for the torture – I  already am allergic to enough stuff as it IS!  I could continue, but not now; why beat a dead transistor…or circuit board…or whatever they used yesterday before it became obsolete and  smaller today, to death?

 pickhitt: Relationships are still better enhanced by telephone communication rather than emails whether the distance is short or long; I will admit that Skype makes me feel like one of The Jetsons and is a great “next best thing to being there” innovation. D-Uh??
