The World We Live In: American Pathway to Communism… and the Fulfillment of Prophesy….

Here is the outline of how we get to a revolution leading Communism… or Statism ruled by an Oligarchy of the Wealthy Elite… with absolutely no constraint on their power….

http://www.theguardian.com/business/live/2015/jun/17/greek-crisis-austria-default-ecb-banks-live

First… impose Socialism….
Next… bankrupt the country….
Then… blame everyone who has lent you money… that you begged for… and promised to pay back….
Finally… destroy the banks… the churches… the schools… confiscate ALL private property… and impose martial law…. Provoke the poor to riot… because they lack the money… the POWER… to oppose you… and education and intelligence to recognize that they are just being used… to serve the oligarchs….
Keep the populous ignorant….
Bring in people who are even more profoundly ignorant… and have no history… or knowledge… of the good times… that would lead to Nationalistic sentiment….

When someone mentions the International… they are talking about Communism… which is often described as Anarchy… or rule of the people… but is actually the most extreme form of dictatorial Fascism possibly imaginable… Statism…. The ANTITHESIS of Democracy… or rule of the people….

But… no intelligent group of people would give up freedom… for Totalitarianism….
However… ignorant people’s allegiances can be bought…. Cheaply….
Deprive people of education….
Deprive people of jobs….
Make them dependent on the State….
Make them nothing more than animals….
Then sic them on the Free….
Pavlovian….
Marxist….
Orwellian….
1984….
Brave New World….

When the Pope calls for a Centralized Govermental Authority….
An International….
Justifying that with a belief in Anthropogenic Climate Change….
Trusting the power of humans… and Humanism… to save man… over God… and Scripture….
Well… I suppose some Prophesies might suggest just exactly these two scenarios….

Throw in a few earthquakes… in say… Alabama….

Well….
God is Sovereign.
What can I say?

Making Strange-R n Stranger

The Hip-Hop background tracks are basically the same as those on the rest of the Mississippi Homeboy Throwdown series: Dub Smash, Electric Buzz and Vintage Synth Bass patches in Garage Band created synthetically.

The acoustic guitar tracks are recorded as sample patches, then pasted in position. The guitar is a cheap, old Yamaha SJ-180 using a Jim Dunlop thin Delrin pick drinking luke warm coffee, at least at the beginning, and tuned in Standard E. Shure SM 57 microphone using Natural Strum Patch. The thrills at the end are the only bits of several hours of work yesterday that were salvageable and they were recorded using the Shure SM 57 microphone straight through Mbox2 Pro without any Garage Band patch.

I should point out that during recording and production today, Brother JAY!-rEE Strange-R dropped by to teach us how to use some patches to augment and adjust the sound on the acoustic instruments as they are recorded. He was also kind enough to point out that if you turn the Recording Volume knob all the way down on Mbox2 Pro on Track 2 while you’re recording vocals on Track 1… then switch over and record acoustic instruments on Track 2… without adjusting the Recording Volume… meaning TURN IT UP… you won’t be able to hear a durn THANG on the track when you try to mix that puppy… no matter HOW many samples you record and how much time you waste recording that waste! All you get is just a tiny little almost imperceptible noise… that is overshadowed by the background buzz of the chickens cluckin’ in the chicken coop when you’re recording…. I would also like to point out that not only is Mr. Strange-R kind… butt he also has kind hair…. The kind you find on a pig’s butt….

The tiny amount of acoustic slide guitar was done on a cheap black Briarwood… that actually has a sweet sound… but a high action… that cannot be adjusted… because the guitar is too cheap…. The guitar was tuned to a Mountain Modal Open D minor DADFAD… which we have never used before…. Recorded using Shure SM 57 microphone using Echo Strum Patch.

The harmonica is a Hohner Blues Harp in the key of C played in third position… which is Mountain Modal Dm…. The harmonica part was recorded using the Natural Vocal Patch…. Tried some of the Fuzz Vocal Patch, but decided to go with Natural…. Recorded using Shure SM 58 microphone and Natural Vocal Patch….

The narration was recorded using the Shure SM 58 microphone and Narration Vocal Patch… or no patch….

The vocal was recorded using the Shure SM 58 microphone and Natural Voice Patch….

Tried to make sure everything was lined up pretty good….

The song is based on an old religious Southern Appalachian folk ballad variously titled Poor Wayfaring Stranger… and a few other names… that dates back to the American Revolution…. The first time the song was published… was in 1816 by Ananias Davidsson in a song book titled Kentucky Harmony…. The title at that time was Judgement. This version is in C Major… at least theoretically… but actually in Mountain Modal D minor… if that makes any sense….

The arrangement is fresh. VERY fresh….

Making of Mississippi Homeboy Throwdown: Introduction & First Bowel Movement (Wayne County Remix)

Let’s see….

Added Frailing on Fender Banjo tuned Open G, which is most common Banjo tuning. Not particularly adept at frailing….
Fiddle tuned in sort of a Old Tymey Appalachian Mountain Open G, but the thing is cheap and won’t stay in tune for even a minute….
Dobro tuned in Dobro Standard Open G… which is GBDgbd….
Harmonica is Hohner Blues Harp in D played in second position which is G major affecting E minor…. Recorded using Narration Vocal patch…. A bit of bluesy bending….

Most of the vocals are recorded using Telephone patch in Garage Band… which introduces a bit of a delay that makes synchronization a bit tricky.

Piano is Concert Stein Grand Piano patch played using keyboard dropped two octaves. First and third parts are recorded straight. Middle part was created synthetically (notes pieced together).

Hip-Hop stylings include Dub Smash, Vintage Synth Bass & Electric Buzz patches arranged synthetically.

Oh…. Almost forgot to mention…. That sound of a the bass dropping… was the bass… dropping….

Idea is kind of Uncle Dave Macon reincarnated as a Hip-Hop artist at the Ryman Auditorium of the Grand Ole Opry…. The Dixie Dew Drop…. First Star….
Music and Comedy co-mingling….

And… please notice that the Wayne County Cousins are the ones who are up-to-date in their appreciation of music….
And if you must know… yes… it’s in 4/4…. Four Beats to the measure….
Hence… Beat Four….

Mississippi Homeboy Throwdown: Chapter 1 (Politically Incorrect Version… consolidated… expanded… edited….)

Sitting outside the local Vietnamese restaurant… Pho Shizzle… enjoying an iced coffee… made fresh at my table…. Soaking in the oppressive heat and humidity…. Hoping my shirt is soaking up my sweat…. But it’s starting to tickle just a little bit… running down… there….

I feel a little embarrassed at the moment… but not as embarrassed as I probably will be when I stand up… looking like I just went… SOMEWHERE… in my shorts….

Anyway….

Oppressive heat and humidity ALWAYS make me reminisce about home….

So… I worked on consolidated and expanding the lyrics to Mississippi Homeboy Throwdown: Chapter 1 (Politically Incorrect Version)….
I wrote a bit last week that I was afraid might be perceived as being offensive to some. So… I left it out of what I posted….
Certain events of this weekend suggest I should not be so timid….
So… here it is….

Well… just for some perspective… I sure LOVE to clown around….
I was born in Mississippi… and this is MY Homeboy Throwdown….
Suppose I should just kinda warn ya’ll all… you know… about my Home Town….
While I throw down these Beastie lyrics… and lay down this Phat Sound….
First… let me tell ya’ll all just a little ‘bout myself….
I ain’t gonna invade your home… drink up all the Hennessey U got on your shelf….
(Nothing. Like. THAT!!!)
My first name is Johnny and my daddy’s J.N.
I ain’t no John or Jonathan… so let me say it again….
My first name is Johnny and my daddy’s J.N.
Those is the names my momma gave me and his momma gave him.
I ain’t no Hip-Hop artist… not even Old School….
And I ain’t signed with Def Jam Records… Nope. I’m just some old fool….
So I sure ain’t no Gangsta Rapper. I don’t wear my pants low.
Cuz showin’ off your underwear just ain’t cool way down in Shady Grove!
(Shady Grove, my little love,
Shady Grove, I say.
Shady Grove, my little love,
I’m bound to go away….)
Yep, I was once a Mustang… went to school in Soso…
And when we really wanted to get WILD… we’d cruise on out to Gitano….
(That don’t even rhyme….)
So… was I ever in a gang…? Well… I sure ain’t no Blood or Crip,
So… this may be my Throwdown… but don’t confuse me… with Busta Phat-Lipp….
Now… I ain’t no politician… so I can drop all ya’ll some TRUTH….
As Mr. Shakespeare might say… harken up to this Forsooth!

Well… I was born in Mississippi down in that Free State of Jones;
Down here we’ve got two County Seats cuz we just can’t seem to get along.
I’m Southern and I’m Christian and ExtrEMELY Wright-Wang.
I think Ronnie was a Commie. That’s just the way I schwish-ZWANG!!!
(Liberals can’t understand: It’s a Conservative thang.)
Well… I schwANG to the right, and then I swang to the… right….
I never swing to the left. I guess probably just too uptight….
Now if I want to hold on to my gun and Bible, that’s my Constitutional Right.
And if you don’t try to force your views down my throat, then we ain’t gotta fight. (Swallow THAT!!!)

Well… I ain’t agin no Muslims and I ain’t agin no Jews…
I ain’t agin no Atheists… I just think everyone should be FREE to choose….
So… I ain’t agin no Hindus… and I sure ain’t agin no Jains…
And though I’m Christian & Conservtive… I think I should just treat EVERYONE the SAME!!!

U C… I ain’t agin Hispanics… and I ain’t no Blacks….
But we’re all in this boat together… so we can ALL drop our attacks….
I KNOW I’m a pasty white boy… and I know some of us are jerks…
But we ALL need to get more learnin’ so we ALL can get TO WORK!!!

Now… WORD to Left-Wingnuts… we ReDNeX all ain’t the same….
We’re all believe in HARD work… and some… even have some brains….
We all love our COUNTRY… and some love our guns….
Some love our God… but ALL of us LOVE to have fun….
(Let’s get REAL… bad….)
If police profilin’s so bad… then why ain’t that rule applied to ALL
Cuz when YOU claim all of us are stupid… you’re just pinnin’ our profile TO YOUR WALL!!!
So… you can STOP all your h8n… blovi8n… and SHI-zzle….
While I drop this bacon in the fryin’ pan…. Ah-h-h-h! Just listen to that SIZZLE!!!

I may not float like no butterfly; I sure don’t sting like no bee.
I may be just a phew pounds phatter than Michelle thinks I ideally SHOULD be….
But I love my Ward’s Chili Cheese Dogs and my PDI shakes…
And I pick up the bill for all Barack’s golf and all Michelle’s Hawaiian Clam Bakes.
Yep, I’m paying for her well-planned meals. I’m even paying for her chef….
I think it sure would be nice… if she’d let me help myself… to what’s left….
So now… I’m gonna thump my Bible and my Bros gonna grab some guns
And all my posse’s gonna saddle up and we’re all gonna have some fun….

(Hey, Sheriff! Wait up! We SUPPORT Law Enforcement!
Wait UP!!!

Somewhere South of Sheer Insanity (Anonymous Androids version #1)

Not quite done, but not sure how much will be able to post….
Limitations regarding equipment….
But this is far more complete… and complex… that what was posted previously….

Warning: Anyone considering listening to this one might want to seek some protection….
A tin-foil hat…. Beanie…. Something of that ilk….

Otherwise… just strap on some strange… step out of your comfort zone… and take a hike… go for a walk in the weird….
Or… get out of the way….

Oh, yeah….
The key….
Just pick one. It’s in there.
This piece is atonal.

Essentially everything previously posted has a key signature. Most are some variation of !-IV-V… Blues… chord structure….
This one is definitely NOT….
There IS a melody. Of sorts….
Not likely one that anyone will hum. Maybe hm-m-m-m-m-m-m a little….
Or a LOT!!!

Not much more to say….

The Collective Intelligence suspects that Schoenberg… and Stockhausen… and even that other Mississippi boy Babbitt… and all of those other Atonal and Serial and Twelve-tone composers could have done a much better job….
That’s why they’re famous….

Organum….

Lost in a Daydream contains a very ancient musical idea: organum….

The idea of organum… is one sustained tone… that is present throughout the entire musical piece….
The idea comes out of some of the ideas of Medieval Polyphony….
One note or tone… often the lowest bass note… was sustained throughout the entire piece….
That’s what happens in Lost in a Daydream…. The low E… which is an open string… that rings… sustains the musical idea of the piece.

I think the piece is probably composed in E major, but the melodic… and dissonant… components certainly require a Blues Scale bordering on the frankly Chromatic….

By the way…. Most Medieval Polyphony… such as Gregorian Chants… were composed in 3/4 time… because Waltz Time simulated the beat of the heart… and was therefore the only acceptable time for musical composition within the Church….
So… a 4/4 piece would definitely have been considered secular….
And… not in a good way….
