Movie Review 77: The Jolson Story
Not accurate as a biography, but accurate in its depiction of the progress of popular music from Stephen Foster, through ragtime, through jazz, through swing and then into the easy listening ballards of the late 40s.

Al Jolson was the first pop star of African-American influenced music. His very original and theatrical performances shouldn't be missed. Three stars.

Our Favourite Canadian Idol
Mood:  special
Our favourite singer on Canadian Idol is Jason Greeley. Sure he's a dynamic rock performer with good looks, but he's also from Newfoundland AND related to my wife, Irene(3rd or 4th cousin).

If you were from Newfoundland would you vote for anyone else??? Who???

I had a nightmare trying to renew our business website with the domain name:

Domain hosting is so much easier and cheaper in the US. Our business webpage is now located at

A domain address simply makes it easier to remember and reach a certain webpage.

Some Days Are Busier Than Others
It was a busy day yesterday, preparing for my mother's 80th birthday party in two weeks and making sure family gets there including my mother.

My wife and I have reinvented our garden and that also takes a great deal of work.

Graceworld Is Another Eternal World Of Jesus Christ
From my knowledge, Graceworld was and still is the most recent "eternal world" of the Lord.

As I stated in other posts, rock and roll has a tendency to reach into our subconscious far deeper than we expect. Since the conditions of Graceworld provoked many unpleasant past life memories, it was determined that this planet would be the home of mental therapies that got rid of these memories.

Does any of the above ring a bell with you?

If we were all good superbeings like Harry Potter or Spiderman, things might have worked out differently.

Take a look at Meatloaf's cosmic view of "Rock And Roll."

The Exportation Of Rock And Roll From Graceworld
Mood:  on fire
Few of us would question the idea that there is more youthful energy in a rock song than any other form of music. The music developed its own dances like the Twist, the Mash Potatoes, the Shake, the Popeye, the Hustle, and God knows what else.

Rock defined an era of mankind like no other music before. Many boomers doubted they would ever get older than thirty(Check out the movie "Logan's Run" below).

Rock was tapping into our subconscious and some of the memories coming out weren't pretty. The eternal Beach Party/Sock Hop gave way to the metal heads of the 70s and 80s like Black Sabbath, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Guns and Roses, Mega Death, AC/DC, etc. etc.

As promoted by "The Grateful Dead" and others, the symbols of death seemed to be everywhere at heavy metal concerts.

Michael Jackson's "Thriller" gave much insight to the darker side of life(or death?)on Graceworld.

Many MTV videos seem to portray beings who were obsessed not only with rock, but with sex and negative experiences.

I would like your comments on my point of view. Do you feel that you're from Graceworld too? What subconscious memories come to the surface when rock music is played?

Job Application Of The Week
Mood:  party time!
Up Against The Wal-Mart(An Actual Job Application)

NAME: George Martin(The Fifth Beatle)
SEX: Not yet. Still waiting for the right person (or one who'll cooperate).
DESIRED POSITION: I like doing it on top, company president or vice-president. But seriously, whatever's available. If I was in a position to be picky, I wouldn't be applying here in the first place.
DESIRED SALARY: $185,000 a year plus stock options and a Michael Ovitz style severance package. If that's not possible, make an offer and we can haggle.
LAST POSITION HELD: Head gopher and target for middle management hostility.
SALARY: A lot less than I'm worth.
MOST NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENT: My incredible collection of stolen pens and post-it notes.
PREFERRED HOURS: 1:30-3:30 a.m. Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.
DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL SKILLS? Yes, but they're better suited to a more intimate environment.
MAY WE CONTACT YOUR CURRENT EMPLOYER? If I had one, would I be here?
DO YOU HAVE A CAR?: I think the more appropriate question here would be "Do you have a car that runs?"
HAVE YOU RECEIVED ANY SPECIAL AWARDS OR RECOGNITION?: I may already be a winner of the Publishers Clearing house Sweepstakes.
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE DOING IN FIVE YEARS?: Living in the Bahamas with a fabulously wealthy dumb sexy blonde supermodel who thinks I'm the greatest thing since sliced bread. Actually, I'd like to be doing that now.
KNOWLEDGE?: Yes. Absolutely.
SIGN HERE: Sagittarius

This was an actual job application that a 75 year old senior submitted to Wal-Mart in Arkansas .... and they hired him because he was so honest and funny!

Where Did Many Of The Baby Boomers Come From?
Of course physically, they came from their mothers, but spiritually that is another question.

Never in human history has a group valued non-conformity, individual spiritual insight and peace so highly. The boomers also found it hard to imagine life over thirty or life without youth(Remember the 60's movie: "Wild In The Streets").

It's my theory that when rock and roll was exported from Graceworld to earth, many of the original spiritual inhabitants came along with it.

The civilization which lost its world in a nuclear holocaust found new life and a new mission on a planet where obedience to political and religious authorities was looked upon as the highest virtue.

The counter culture moved forward in North America and Great Britain with challenging movies and music of the 60s. Do you remember "Easy Rider", "Cool Hand Luke" and "Billy Jack?"

"Where's it's at for you dad, isn't necessarily where it's at for me." was one of the defining slogans of that age.

What do you think of the boomer phenomena?
