garage and musak -Kurt Cobain


Canadian Interview

Cobain spoken of his artistic profession, and the non-artistic hassles of entertainment business, and clears some misinformations of inspirations ans such. From my fan readings of art guilds, its appears to be still relevant. Social observations of “coercions” such as alleged forced “trolling” forced stalking from fans, slander, pirating is a problem that goes on today.
Musicians, actors, and soon “INTERNET celebrities react by seeking protections of including lawyers and security.

Today more people understand the street theater and “mobbing” consciousness – perhaps Cobain was a victim of it, as it is alleged about the music business (put a finger on that ). plausible scenarios:

  • the musician faces harassment, the harassment COULD have been provoked, this is not the musicians problem directly, but the reaction is to hire lawyers, security, etc.
    The emotional and social pressure can affect the artists art and personal life and health.

word-music interwoven

Kurt Conbains and Nirvanas releases stand as integraded woven Gestalts, neither the music or the lyrics stand alone as half the quality of the whole of any song. thats my estimation.
Cobains influences include early folk-blues Woodie Guthrie and LeadBelly, as he cited in his interviews; Early REM, Leonard Cohen, and amplified deconstructions of Sonic Youth and the Raincoats.
Some of my Favorite Nirvana Hymns as

  • ” In Bloom ” -the lyrics remain as fresh and topical as when written
  • ” Come as You are” – disarming friendship song
  • ” Mollys Lips” – crisp cover of the Vaselines
  • ” Aneurysm ” – long time ago my alarm clock was set to wake up to this song, Daily
  • ” Sliver ” – child frustration at grandmas house

The “Priest” They Called Him – collaboration between Curt Cobain And William S. Burroughs, spoken of in the interview can be found at https://is.gd/ul7DK6

This Machine – Apologetic Angst. “Rape me”

The lead singer and songwriter of the music band NIRVANA, spoke of releasing rape me do his own desire to clarify earlier masterpiece as “Polly” Cobain felt his art is out of context and that he is misunderstood. All though this was true of casual fans, his most loyal fans understood the his work completely. perhaps fans of T.S Eliot “Waste Land” understood its narrative style.
(“Polly” is a daring peace of art, where the musician perspective-takes , the detached emotions and reality of victimizing, and very probably mental ill psychopath.)

Kurt Cobain and Nirvana

Nirvana formed circa 1987 and is best known as a trio,that included Kurt Cobain (1967-1994), Krist Novoselic, Dave Grohl
Album hi-lites, my opinion, Bleach, Nevermind , Incesticide , In Utero
and the Live Cuts: “MTV Unplugged in New York” , “From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah” , and “Live at Reading”

fanning the “Big Game” victory

Philadelphia Eagles played with a style of football that the “old school” football fan loves.
they line up, they dont mind “telling” what they are doing. – ” gwa’an  ahead stop us.
on and off the field the same swagger. Dictate the Game.
the coaches implement simplified play structures(relatively) the focus on exploiting the talent and synergy of the athletes. You would expect that Doug Petersons staff spends more time scrutinizing his Own athletes on film, then next weeks Opponent.

the Offense

last year the Eagles adapted the “zone blocking” scheme, as a scrutinizing fan, i believed they abandoned it because of the costly “holding penalties” on the line.  But, they kept the base “spread formation” (a style demands an excellent Center,) and keeps the play in front of the entire offense, lineman, QB, Backs and receivers.

the Defense

As with some remarkable NFL Defenses in the past, Chicago Bears, Tampa Bay – the Eagles base is a cover-2 “one gap ” Defense. Again: the Defensive style keeps the play in front of the Defense, demanding the athletes to make plays. In passing situations, they spread the Dline formation. a line with exceptional talent, and force the oppositions QB to throw into high percentage interception lanes. in Fact, if the Defense caught their many dropped interceptions, they would have led the league in take aways. – room for improvement.
Getting ready for another successful year.

meanwhile

THANK YOU, Philadelphia Eagles for ANOTHER great Football season. it doesnt get any better than this one.

Journey of life – education


Nice rendition of a popular lecture of Alan Watts.
journey of purpose TJOP – on youtube.
Video address the relative standards of how one or a group is trained in the present post academic job and career market.
When does one, or a family feel the sense of achievement, satisfaction and purpose in the context of finances, when goals and quotas are more tangible then in the moment rewards.
Another Edit of Alan Watts Lecture- can be found here:

* Alan Watts talks the human game / Universe At Play *

Making Plans for the for future is only Useful to those who are capable of living in the moment,”
