Hold On Tight A Little Longer



The Meshuganeh-Cat is Back - For Good



Hard Love
By Need To Breathe


Trading punches with the heart of darkness
Going to blows with your fear incarnate
Never gone until it's stripped away
A part of you has gotta die to change

In the morning you gon' need an answer
Ain't nobody gonna change the standard
It's not enough to just feel the flame
You've gotta burn your old self away

Hold on tight a little longer
What don't kill ya, makes ya stronger
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
You can't change without a fallout
It's gon' hurt, but don't you slow down
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love

You know the situation can't be right
And all you ever do is fight
But there's a reason that the road is long
It take some time to make your courage strong

Hold on tight a little longer
What don't kill ya, makes ya stronger
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
You can't change without a fallout
It's gon' hurt, but don't you slow down
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love

When the wolves come and hunt me down
I will face them all and stand my ground
'Cause there's a fire burnin' in me
They will see my strength in this love I found
 

 Oh - Hold on tight a little longer
What don't kill ya, makes ya stronger
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
You can't change without a fallout
It's gon' hurt, but don't you slow down
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love


It's a hard love... Hold on tight a little longer

What don't kill ya, makes ya stronger 
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
You can't change without a fallout
It's gon' hurt, but don't you slow down
 Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
'Cause it's a hard love 


May I be like Gideon - Judges 6:36-40

Remember Who We Are





Remember Who We Are 
Its our time to take a stand
Remember Who We Are
There’s a call across this land

Remember Who We Are
We were a city on a hill
A candle in the dark
It started long ago
We have come so far
[Chorus]
We keep our faith
When there is no way out
When there is little hope
We show no doubt
We know the distance
No matter how hard
Remember Who We Are 
We’ve paid a price to be free
Remember Who We Are
With our blood sweat and tears
Remember Who We Are
Will our children be the ones asking us one day
Why we didn’t do enough
Why we gave it all away
[Chorus]
We keep our faith
When there is no way out
When there is little hope
We show no doubt
We go the distance
No matter how far
Remember Who We Are
Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes we will run and not be faint
The time has come for taking chances
We are the masters of our fate.
[Breakdown]
We keep our faith
When there is no way out
When there is little hope
We show no doubt
We go the distance
No matter how hard
[Chorus]
We keep our faith
When there is no way out
When there is little hope
We show no doubt
We know the distance
No matter how hard (oh oh)
Remember Who We Are

I Am America Lyrics




I Am America

Pay no attention to the people in the street,
Crying out for accountability.
Make a joke of what we believe,
Say we don’t matter cause you disagree.

Pretend you’re kings, sit on your throne,
Look down your nose at the peasants below.
I’ve got some news; we’re taking names,
We’re waiting now for the judgment day.

I am America, one voice, united we stand.
I am America, one hope to heal our land.
There is still work that must be done.
I will not rest until we’ve won.

I am America.

You preach your tolerance but lecture me.
Is there no end to your own hypocrisy?
Your god is power, you have no shame,
Your only interest is political gain.

You hide your eyes and refuse to listen.
You play your games and abuse the system.
You stuff your pockets while Rome is burning.
I’ve got a feeling that the tide is turning.

I am America, one voice, united we stand.
I am America, one hope to heal our land.
I will not give up on this fight,
I will not fade into the night.

I am America.

You stuff your pockets while Rome is burning.
I’ve got a feeling that the tide is turning.

I am America, one voice, united we stand.
I am America, one hope to heal our land.
I am America, one voice, united we stand.
I am America, one hope to heal our land.

I will not give up on this fight,
I will not fade into the night.

I am America

Pastor Mike Branch's comment on You Tube:
"We only ask that you make your point with respect without profanity, vulgarity, talk of violence or personal threats. If you chose to do so we will delete it. This song is stating our disgust with corrupt politicians.

This includes Republicans, Democrats, Independents or any other 3rd party. If they break the law or give in to any form of corruption ALL VOTERS should hold them accountable on election day... (judgement day)"

Ditto.

In Memoriam to George Carlin



Still reverberating from the stunning loss of the beloved Tim Russert along comes Mr. Death to twist the knife of unanticipated loss and drown us once again in grief.

George Carlin is in the rarefied pantheon of the few, too few, truly great stand-up comedians. Along with Mort Sahl, Lenny Bruce, Dick Gregory and Richard Pryor, George Carlin embodied the Swiftian, Twainish culturally astute rapier wit and wisdom that every era needs. The love of language the horror, ecstasy and sublime ridiculousness of human behavior along with the sensibility to synthesize psychology and sociology into the unique poetry of joke-telling is the very recipe for comic greatness.

And now immortality...
Good night sweet Prince.

Richard Belzer - June 23, 2008, Huffington Post


My Favorite Comments:"What Carlin had in common with the pantheon Richard Belzer names is that he was as much (or perhaps more) a cultural observer than a comedian. He made people laugh but he didn't really tell jokes in the classic sense. He seldom if ever tried to act silly for cheap laughs. Instead he'd grab hold of some aspect of our culture or of life and strip it down to the bare bones of its absurdity. He'd make me see things I'd always passed over or never thought about in quite that weird way, and make me wonder why I'd never seen it that way. And even when he did push the silly envelope, his riffs would stay in my mind sometimes for weeks, like tunes I couldn't get rid of.
The first time I heard where is the blue food? I must have spent days trying to think of a natural food that was actually anything near blue. Why my mind insisted on working this absurd problem I don't know, but like so much else he said, the idea was so out there that it just got inside me. I had to know whether this tweaked perception was really true, so I could write him and prove he was wrong. No chance. How many other human beings other than Carlin would actually have been curious and insistent enough to work this out?" -starboymikey
=^..^= ......
Well said Belz. Saw you on "Morning Joe" when your dog barfed on Mika and the chaos it created was almost a perfect way to pay tribute to Carlin. You're reaction when they informed you that SNL was going to air the first time he hosted SNL this weekend was raw and real. Belz, you are also a comic's comic and I'm glad you're out there talking so fondly about the iconic Carlin.

I was shocked to my inner bones when I read that one of my big brothers of comedy was gone - I have not yet recovered...

Still, I will not give up eccentric observationism, nor will I give in to culturally purposeless whims. Thank you, George for clearing the path so the different drummer could follow your example. You were a rare bird, but thankfully, the sacred fool will never be exterminated.

(So there, Orkin Man - go play Old Maid with the Maytag repair guy.)

The foolish will always confound the automated wise.

Get On The Bus Already!

Richard Belzer On Fame:
“...you have to really humiliate yourself early on,
make a fool of yourself… which you probably will any way.
Then you’ll see how bad it is when you look at it again. And you’ll adjust.”
