For these bands unwilling to add to the dysfunction of an already corrupt and money driven machine like the "music industry", <em>selling out was never an option</em>, hell, they never even got the chance too <em>sell out</em>,........<em> the music and record industry had well and truly been all stiched up in America by the mid eighties by the Corporations and their tin-earred spreadsheet brained non creative pencil pushing accountants</em>!</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;"></span>  <span style="font-size: large;">I've often heard people say to me how music nowadays is...................... well fu*ked, sure there maybe talented people out there still and i'm sure as fu*k NOT saying there aren't, it's just pre MTV, the musicians <strong>didn't</strong> have to fit a certain social "ideal" in appearance, and talent was the first prerequisite for them being on the radio or whatever, we're talking well and truly long before the Internet as we know it today, just look at that manufactured Corporate "boy band"<strong> One Direction</strong>, five members, each with a completely different  and specific tailored and manipulated "image" for maximum identification and differention with the rest of the cast of this musical version just like <strong>The Village People</strong> did. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;">I don't know what or how much "Branded" sh*t <strong>One Direction </strong>has out there but i can only imagine it would be enough to fill the<em> new</em> <strong>Dallas Cowboys</strong> football stadium several times over!</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;"> Just look at each one of them, just sickening, these pre-pubescent boys being held up to the world as role models of future manhood across the known universe, that's right, for these young twerps are being idolised worshipped and imitated all around the world even as i write this..........................scary eh!</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;"> <em>I'm SOOOOOO fu*k'in glad i'm not a teenager nowadays, with hideous and repulsive programs on television like <strong>GLEE</strong>, and MTV constantly playing a rotation of "girly-boys" wanting to be the epitome some kind of totally gay pop star, aswell as their programs like "Sixteen and pregnant"? like WTF is this sh*t doing on fu*k'in MTV, MUSIC TELEVISION was what MTV was, not some kind of program dishing out parenting advice and tips for teenagers dumb enough or stupid enough to be having ANYKIND of sex WITHOUT protection.....................are they fuck'in stupid or what?</em></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;"><em>  MTV</em>'s role should be to steer well clear of this, for this enters the realm of dictating personal religious and societal ideals onto people who never asked for it, and now can't watch MTV because it's become another mouthpiece for the religious right to impose their beliefs onto others once it airs, <em>MTV</em> has <strong>not</strong> got either the mandate or the approval of the society or parents to put to air such religious swill, stuff that is so bad and damaging to the American AND Australian youth turning them into the dumbest of the dumb! Real life walking talking imbeciles, learning about life through a television and <em>MTV</em>, what part of society are these people going to add to? </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;"> Jails and the Military of course, this is where many of the social outcasts and poor end up, can't exist in "mainstream" culture so what options are left, well in <strong>America</strong> there are none, you've got the Military or the Military, the stratification of the population through forms of class distinction and education<em> really do limit</em> the options one has if one's born poor in American today and in the last thirty five years or so......................... well since <strong>Reagan</strong> and his regime took over in nineteen eighty i'll leave it at that!</span></p> Sat, 29 Dec 2012 03:44:16 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Articles/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Articles/list I was totally pilled out and stoned again! <p>       To be read after "Playboy and Hef the Monument  to American culture" for continuity in - <strong>96hrs. to L.A. and back</strong> -</p> <p><span style="font-size: large;">  <em>Well that had been fun</em>, meeting <em>Hef</em> finally and watching him at his work, this was something like watching DaVinci i'm sure, yes two completely different types of expertise and genius but <strong>UNDOUBTEDLY BOTH</strong> will be remembered throughout the future annuls of history.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;"><em> Sonya</em> and <em>Meredith</em> had been waiting just outside for me while i'd been in my meeting, and when i exited, they both came up and playfully kissed me on the cheek and told me we were heading "home" now for the night well and truly, i'd seen <em>Hef</em> and we'd had fun at the party earlier on and met a whole new array of personalities and new contacts what more could i have possibly wanted now except to go back and unwind with these two! </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;"> We head for the main door exit, i look at my watch and it's alittle past four, we leave the main house proper with not a soul in sight, the music is non-existent and the security guards are the only ones around, although the<em> BIG</em><strong> Maybach</strong> is still here which could only mean one thing,..................<strong>Snoop Dogg</strong> is still somewhere on the property!</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;"> I decide to let better judgement take course here and forget about catching up with <strong>Snoop</strong> tonight that's for sure, sh*t.................... if i hadn't just come half-way around the world i'd of surely been ready to see the sun come up that's for fu*k'in sure, as it was though, i was <em>NOT</em> in that condition and my best and only option then was to split and head home A.S.A.P.!</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;"><em> Otis</em> was there just where we left him earlier, this guy was good, real professional, and i was so glad that none of us had to drive, <em>probably because to drive safely it's normally a prerequisite too "<strong>NOT BE DRUG EFFECTED"</strong>, well that sure as SH*T wasn't any of us here and now</em>, and the funny thing was after we got back into the limo to leave, without either of them on top of me this time, i look and see Sonya starting to roll up one of her "<em>trumpet</em>" doobies out of the "Charlie Sheen", <em>fu*k she must of read my mind, this girl was good, i'd been "sting'in" for a joint as soon as i had left the building, this was fun sh*t , you could smoke your guts out and it never really wiped ya out, or it didn't wipe me out atleast, just tasty flavourful buds!</em></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;"><em> </em>It wasn't long before i had handed to me a "specimen" of a doobie, decidely "top shelf" these "trumpet" doobies look just like something you'd get at the <strong>Amsterdam</strong> Coffee houses, i was just totally taken back at her dexterity in being able to do such perfect doobies in an <em>almost totally pilled out and stoned frame of mind, ...........just a wonder!</em></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;"> I lit this little bastard up as fast as i can and take one "BIG" toke on it and pass it on to <em>Sonya,</em> i held it in for five seconds or so and before i even blow it all out i feel this cooling rush flowing around my brain, just amazing,..............,., i'm just fu*ked as i melt backwards into the cushions, <em>Sonya</em> and <em>Meredith</em> see this and both come on either side of me and sit right next to me, they looked worried so i gave them a two thumbs up sign which set a look of relief across their faces, and like the drug freaks we all had become,  by the time our trip home was over these two were laying flat out with just the doobies hang'in out their mouths, could barely move, they looked like they were fu*ked out on opium, totally toe down the both of them, made me laugh i can tell ya!</span></p> Fri, 21 Dec 2012 12:59:00 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Articles/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Articles/list Thank you to ALL my 20,000 subscribers on Artslant.com!!

Please........... have a seat for me James and i'll just finish this up as we speak.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;"> "Have ya had some fun tonight James"?,........... "fun,...........fun would be an under-statement" i reply, "this whole day full stop is beyond my wildest dreams" i added. "Good, good, we were hoping the house and party would be suitable for your visit to see us",..........i was more than suited with the way i'd been treated as a guest i add, "the house and the Art in it are incredible let alone the cars" i relay to him, "did you like shooting the "<strong>Casull</strong>" he asks, " that .<strong>454 Casull</strong> was a real kicker"!,............ "yeah...<em>laughing</em>, it looked like you need some practice with that "<em>beast"!</em> That's funny, he referred to it as a <em>beast</em> just like i had when i had been firing it down in the shooting range.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;"> "So what <em>DON'T</em> you know about what i've been up to since i arrived at the house" i ask,   "hey it's a security measure,......... don't worry about it, have you <em>not</em> been able to do whatever <em>you've wanted to</em> do since your arrival",................ ,<em> he was right about that that's for sure</em>, he may of known my location but what i was doing was info he didn't have which was fine with me,............i didn't really want him to know anyway as any right minded person would of wanted.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;"> "Come here, .... i want you to have a look at the next issue and tell me what you think" so i slowly walk over to where it was layed out, my torpidity of earlier on had vanished and i was virtually back to "normal", <em>"wow,.... this looks sensational"</em> was what first came out and i meant it,  as i carefully view what would be on the magazine stands soon enough!</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;"> "He starting laughing, quite hard actually "i haven't seen a reaction as good as that in years <em>James</em>.....(<em>laughing</em>) you crack me up" continuing to laugh, i guess i was sightly more "<em>out of it</em>" than i had ever realized but i didn't care as i was having a good time and that was all that was ever asked of me the whole time i was staying there with him!</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;"> My opinion was something that of course wasn't in the slightest bit required, i like to think he was being inclusive, which to me was as an Artist, was a very kind and appreciated gesture of goodwill and friendship,<em> what more this great man could've done for me while i was there is nothing, he had all the bases covered that's for sure!</em></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;"><em> </em>I was fairly sure by the way he was talking to me about my "companions" <em>Sonya</em> and <em>Meredith</em> that he'd only wished he'd been my age, as these two were as i had found out already were "<em>special</em>" and he instinctively knew this, sh*t,....when you've met and seen nude as many babes as <em>Hef</em> had in his "<em>lifetime</em>",... let's just say he had "<strong>impeccable taste in the female of the species".</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;"><strong> </strong>" I'm having a few people around this afternoon for an "<em>after-party" James</em> can i expect to see you there"?, "sure, i'm gonna need to leave and get some shut eye now though as i'm feeeling the "<em>jet-lag</em>" pretty hardcore now" i reply, "good, .......i'm off soon myself and just want to make sure you'll be there so we can talk some business", "the three of us wouldn't miss it" i reply, "O.K.<em> James</em>.........................see ya tomorrow" as his head bowed down to the glow table and the  hand with the magnifying glass went up, i stood momentarily in the shadows of the brightly lit room before exiting and watched this living monument at what someday would never ever exist, this moment captured in time and in my mind will last longer than he. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;">"I dazed out when i did this and the next thing i know he asks "was there anything else <em>James</em>"? ................"Oh,............oh no,no, i was just in a daydream" i tell him as i turn and head for the door for the final time leaving silently. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: large;"></span> </p> Mon, 17 Dec 2012 12:59:51 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Articles/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Articles/list
