With CDs, VHSs and old cassette tapes stacked floor to ceiling, Rainbow Music is a hoarder’s paradise. However, its quirky owner, known as ‘The Birdman’, knows exactly where everything is. Amidst the Starbucks and Subways popping up on every corner of the East Village, Rainbow Music maintains its mom and pop feel, and is a hidden gem to its patrons. Due to the weak economy, online music sales and pirating, and the changing neighborhood, this charismatic curmudgeon is struggling to sell what he has in his store. Despite these challenges, The Birdman carries on to his own tune.

Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael) - The Importance Of Studying History,
Stockley Carmichael, breaking down the paradigm of social & cultural racism which was historically backed through scientific racism from the 18th century till today in some places. However this ideological view is on it’s deathbed.
So it’s proponents are desperately reevaluating, revising, and rationalizing the justifications for their obsolete racist views. Yet, they’re failing miserably. They’re facing the inevitable; IDEOLOGICAL EXTINCTION.
Furthermore Kwame reemphasizes the importance of people on the continent and diaspora knowing their history. He emphasizes the importance of Africa being the Centre of history for the people on the continent.
The thing he said that got me going, was, ‘If the indigenous people of America Started their history with the Arrival of Columbus they would be in trouble’.
richoncongress: “Great blog bro, was hoping to get a prescription filled regarding some Chicago type of stuff. I love Elmore James, was hoping to get turned on to some lesser known folks of that ilk. Thanks!”
Postwar Chicago Blues, a time when Muddy Waters & Howlin’ Wolf ruled the Chicago clubs, Chess recorded all the best blues, and Maxwell St. was where they played in the open air. Muddy’s band was called the “Head Cutters” because they were notorious for stealing gigs from lesser bands. The Wolf and Muddy had an intense rivalry, stealing musicians from each other. Most of the great Chicago harp players interned in Muddy’s band. It was a magic time and place for the Blues.
Dr.’s Note: Dosage: 14 artists x 2 tracks = 28 tracks, TRT: 1hr. 20min. Listen as needed. As you can see this is Volume 1, for complete treatment, you will need to listen to Volume 2: West Side Chicago Blues and Volume 3: South Side Chicago Blues. Enjoy!
This is actually a personal favourite of mine, an Italian production based on a popular comic/fumetti. It’s directed by Mario Bava, who’s better known for quite a few really good horror films of the time, and this probably won’t surprise you, but it’s one of the films that directly inspired Austin Powers. It’s a pop-art dream, with a really swinging score from Ennio Morricone, including this theme song. Speaking of music, if it all looks a bit familiar, you may have seen this Beastie Boys video that paid tribute it. It also ended up as the final episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000, but even Mike and the Bots admitted it was much better than their usual fare. This is well worth seeking out, it’s a tonne of fun and a surprisingly early example of the comic book movie, with direction and photography that truly looks like a comic come to life.
Note from rp: we need body rockin’ not perfection.
