Its not that it's made of albums but it's because of what SPECIFIC albums are there. I sees me some Dean Martin and especially Harry Belafonte. I would listen to that Calypso record of his in my youth for hours. When it played I WAS from the Caribbean baby. And we would sing...
"Come Mr Tallyman, tally me banana...daylight come and me want throw up"
- k those weren't totally the real words but they always sounded funny to me. Loved singing that song back when I did drink and sing a lot. Some jukebox somewhere always had a great old tune like that shook everyone up a bit and got them to forget who they were and where they were at for a moment.
- or we would break into one of the old negro spirituals..."I meant a song, a REAL song"...
- Me and my roommate in University would smoka a bit of the ganja and make up our own songs. We imagined our reggae hits album to have us on the cover wearing those beaded hat they all wear and some of our songs were titled...
'I Feel It In My Pocket' 'I Left It At My Bitches' and the classic - 'Yes It's Me Mon'.
- Then one of us would have to ask the other - "Hey Mon, are we planning to sit around here all evening?" And the other would reply - "No Mon, we not planning it, we just doing it."
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
