as usually great stuff Al. did i tell you that as soon as i put this poem on my site i got a visit from the DOD. i often have a look at what servers are looking at my site and there dod was one day after i posted this poem on my site. big brother is watching and i am sure they are scanning your site as well and it is good. perhaps it will open their eyes just a little bit. perhaps it will stir some consciousness. somewhere deep down there has to be soul there somewhere. they seem to scan all sites that mention Iraq, afghanistan and the two towers and your site has plenty of that.

your site is my all time favorite to keep track on political artistic movement in da world. hey by the way i know how your financial situation is and even though mine is bleak i want to give you a little gift so can you send me your snail mail? i have perhaps never told you but i consider you one of the heros of our world

with joy as always

JIM McREYNOLDS DIES

Subject: Buddy Woodward & The Nitro Express: January Gig Announcement
Date: Thu, 02 Jan 2003 11:27:39 -0500

To: info@blacklistedjournalist.com

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of bluegrass & country music legend JIM McREYNOLDS, of Jim & Jesse fame, on December 31st, 2002.  Jim was an astounding high harmony vocalist, right up there with Ira Louvin.  1997 National Heritage Fellowship winners, Grand Ole Opry members, & the pride of their native Virginia, Jim & Jesse were known as much for their integrity as the tight vocal harmonies & musical virtuosity that defined their sound over an astonishing 50+ years in the business.  There is a good overview of their career highlights & musical innovations here: http://arts.endow.gov/artforms/Folk/Mcreynolds.html

Jim had just suffered the loss of his wife during Christmas, so this must be an especially hard blow for his loved ones. Our prayers are with brother Jesse McReynolds & the rest of the family during this sad holiday season, & we ask that you please keep them in your thoughts.  ##

Everyone seems to be wondering why Muslim terrorists are so quick to commit suicide.

Let's see now . . No beer, No booze, No bars, No television, No cheerleaders,  No baseball,  No football,  No basketball,  No hockey, No golf,  No tailgate parties,  No Hooters, No hot dogs,  No burgers, or even frozen fish sticks. Rags for clothes and towels for hats. Constant wailing from the guy next door because he's sick and there are no doctors. Constant wailing from the guy in the tower. No chocolate chip cookies, No Chanukah. You can't shave, Your wife can't shave, You can't shower to wash off the smell of donkey cooked over burning camel dung. The women have to wear baggy dresses and veils at all times. Your bride is picked by someone else. She smells just like your donkey. But your donkey has a better disposition. Then they tell you that when you die it all gets better! No mystery here.  ##

DEATH OF JOE STRUMMER OF THE CLASH

Subject: GREAT SPIRIT BLESS YOU JOE
Date: Thu, 26 Dec 2002 16:05:24

To: info@blacklistedjournalist.com  

Thorloks Mass in Reykjavik its rainin rainin rainin i step into a record job and hear the news JOE STRUMMER IS GONE-DIED IN HIS SLEEP!!!....my oh my the memories start to fly...my 1st visit to London Jan.80...bought the double lp CLASH - LONDON CALLING and cant begin to describe the kick i got out of hearing ( still do!!! ) the songs - Guns of Brixton , London Calling, Caddilac and ooooooweeeee!!! The Clampdown! :) These songs This Power made my heart beat faster , blood run hot & spirit fly high! At the time i was pumpin guitar fire in the engine room of a new Icelandic group UTANGARSMENN and in many ways musically/lyrically we were very much related to Clash in Spirit so perhaps it was no coincidance ( nothing ever is ) that The Clash & Utangar smenn joined forces the summer of 80 for a Great Concert at Laugardalshll in Reykjavik , Iceland.

What can i say about the cat who sang STRAIGHT TO HELL, THIS IS ENGLAND...played with THE POQUES...produced the beautifull Pogues song SUMMER IN SIAM & So Much More......i clasp hands, bow down , wish Joe Strummer a good journey and send my love out to his friends , fans & family...kindred spirits everywhere...Play On!

Infinite Blessings, Michael Dean Odin Pollock . Rvk. 2002  ##
