LYRICS

God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen
We wish you happy holidays, whoever you may be
So merry Christmas, Kwanzaa, Chanukah, or heck all three
We’ve modernized these jingles for the massive bourgeoisie
Love, The Updated Christmas Carol Team

Santa Clause is Coming to Town
You better not judge, you better not hate
Better not bully or discriminate
Progressive Santa’s coming to town
He’s making a list of gluten free foods
He won’t take a peek at J-Law’s nudes
Progressive Santa’s coming to town
He’s 50 different races
And all for tax reform
He’ll protect all your children
Well, as long as they’ve been born

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
Rudolph the red nosed reindeer (reindeer)
Had an advantageous nose (he outlived his friends)
He passed his bright red traits on (traits on)
Darwin said that’s how it goes (evolution’s not a theory)

Mary Did You Know
Mary did you know that your baby boy supports the NRA
Mary did you know that your baby boy is white

Deck the Halls
Deck the halls with kujichagulia
Kwa wa wa wa wa wa wa wanza
Give zawadi, hang benderas
Kwa wa wa wa wa wa wa wanza
Throw your hands up in the air-uh
Kwa wa wa wa wa wa wa wanza

You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch
You’re a green one, Mr. Grinch
You’re lacking in finesse
That greenish epidermis determines your success
Mr. Grinch
Racist Whos constrain you to the issues they continue to suppress
You’re an outlier, Mr. Grinch
You give the Whos a fright
They say your heart is 3/5ths normal,
You’re either wrong or white
Mr. Grinch
Don’t walk the streets of Whoville you might fight a cop the Whos will not indict

White Christmas
I’m dreaming of a racially ambiguous holiday

Away In A Manger
Away in a manger with Jesus and crew
His schmeckle got cut cause hey Christ was a Jew

O Holy Night
O holy night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night Jesus did something holy
Joseph watched golf, his leather chair reclining
As Mary birthed a child, I think a donkey was involved
Three wise men came, with GPS they found him
Christ lied in a barn, as his omniscient baby-daddy looked down
Jesus crawled on his knees
His mom shared it on snapchat
O bright device!
O night, when Christ celebrated Christmas “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Salisbury Cathedral Spire Climb December 2014

 

 

 

    Watch as Philip Scorer ascends the Salisbury Cathedral spire to perform needed repairs on the weather station …

 

 

 

    Here is another video of the men at the very top doing the repairs to the anemometer and enjoying the view from 400 feet up … not for the faint of heart …

 

 

   Here is yet one more view of the spectacular climb up the Cathedral’s spire , complete with some conversation with the men before they begin their ascent . 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Published on Dec 18, 2014

” Man takes the ultimate selfie from the top of Wiltshire’s Salisbury cathedral while filming scheduled repair work.

  Is this Britain’s most terrifying selfie? Daredevil conservationist snaps a pic of himself at the top of Salisbury Cathedral’s 404ft spire

  A daredevil conservationist and his team have taken Britain’s most stomach-churning seflie – from the top of a 404ft medieval spire.

  Gary Price, 46, clerk of works at Salisbury Cathedral in Wiltshire, and a team of helpers took a number of pictures from the capstone at the very top of the spire while carrying out repairs.

  Kitted out in ropes, a harness and a hard hat Mr Price, who is in charge of the cathedral’s conservation, made the hair-raising climb to replace a faulty wind meter accompanied by rope access specialists.

  He climbed the 332 steps inside the cathedral to the base of the tower before scaling ten narrow ladders inside the spire to a small weather door.

  He then climbed through the door and pulled himself up the last 30 feet to the capstone using rungs set into the outside of the spire’s masonry.

  It is only the fourth time Mr Price, from Salisbury, has made the climb and something that will not be repeated for another three or four years.
He replaced the anemometer, a device for measuring wind speed, which had stopped working properly in wind and rain.

  Mr Price and his team also abseiled down the east side to check out and plug a leak that was discovered as a result of the September storms.

  While most cathedrals in medieval times took centuries to build, Salisbury’s was erected in just 38 years by 300 men from 1220 to 1258.

  The spire was added later between 1300 and 1330 and the cathedral is the tallest medieval structure in the world.

  Salisbury Cathedral also has Britain’s largest cloister and largest cathedral close, the world’s oldest working clock and the best surviving of the four original copies of the Magna Carta.

  Mr Price said: ‘It’s a very exciting day for me because I don’t get to go up the spire very often at all and it’s probably going to be the last time for another three or four years.

‘ The cathedral is the tallest medieval structure in the world, 404ft to get to the capstone.

‘ When you climb out the weather door the spire is quite wide, but the higher you go the more narrow it gets and you do feel a bit like “is this going to take my weight?” but it will, it’s been there for 800 years.

‘ It is quite exposed and you can see all the way around you.

‘ When you get up there your heart is definitely in your mouth and all of your senses are heightened.

‘ You’re super safe but it’s certainly an adrenaline rush.

‘ The hardest bit is making yourself climb out of the door when you’re perfectly safe inside and when you abseil back down to go in the door, with the harness and all the equipment you need and it’s a narrow door it can be quite tight to get back in.

‘ If there’s two or three of you up there and one of you moves you can feel the spire slightly swaying.’ “

John Mayall: Jammin’ With The Blues Greats 1982

 

 

 

Published on Jun 30, 2013

” One hot night in June 1982 at New Jersey’s Capitol Theater, John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, featuring Mick Taylor (Rolling Stones) on lead guitar, John McVie (Fleetwood Mac) on bass, and Colin Allen (of Rod Stewart’s band) on drums, paid homage to and were joined by five blues immortals: Albert King, Etta James, Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, and the 83-year-old Sippie Wallace. Each of the blues greats were backed by the Bluesbreakers, resulting in some amazing musical moments. Awesome is the only word to describe the guitar jams among Albert King, Buddy Guy, and Mick Taylor. “

Students Sign Petition To Deport Americans In Exchange For Illegal Immigrants

 

 

 

” Students at George Washington University (GWU) willingly signed a petition supporting the deportation of one American citizen in exchange for one illegal immigrant.

“ Please sign our petition for President Obama to deport one American citizen, in exchange for one undocumented immigrant,” read the petition. “Everyone must be allowed a shot at the ‘American Dream.’ Americans should not be greedy. Let us right the wrongs of our past and make another’s dreams come true.”

“ It makes sense,” one student told Campus Reform. “Like, I’ve noticed that there is a lot of like hatred against undocumented immigrants and it’s not necessarily their fault.” “

 

 

    As one of the commenters on the Youtube page says , these students should be told immediately after signing that they are the ones that have “volunteered” to be deported … LOL … we’ve gone from the “greatest generation” to the most idiotic generation in just 50 years . We have State education to thank for it , that and political correctness . Feh …

With our institutions of higher learning turning out students like this is it any wonder that we have the leadership that we do ?

Sausalito Crash 12:14:14

 

 

 

  While Silas Patlove was out for an afternoon cycling excursion though the hills outside of Sausalito he experienced a dangerous encounter with a sizable specimen of the species Odocoileus virginianus , otherwise known as the white-tailed deer . As Mr Patlove was speeding downhill on the shoulder of Alexander Avenue he had the all too common experience , among motorists at least , cyclists thankfully not so much ,  of watching helplessly as the buck in question leapt the highway guardrail directly in his path .

    As luck would have it , the cyclist was armed with a helmet-cam which survived the crash and herewith provides the reader with a visual record of his deer encounter . Readers will be pleased to know that Silas escaped with a minor concussion and some small memory loss but is otherwise ok . Watch the video and be thankful for both bicycle helmets and helmet-cams .

There was much to do on both sides of the aisle about the video , most of which commented on the fact that said video was unintended parody .

   Below are the lyrics so you can follow along …

” LYRICS:
Just like the last time around
Republicans are gonna frown
Mitt Romney and Ben Carson now?
Like Twitter stock you’re going down

You’d that you were riding in
Billy Joel’s car I swear
because you’re gonna see
shattered glass everywhere

I’m talking Arkansas Badonkadonk..
Perfect voting record make you wanna vote along
Gonna bring along ol’ Bill Clinton
and ooh-wee, shut my mouth, slap your grandma

You think she’s gonna lose
in the early primaries?
You’d sooner see Al Sharpton
promptly filing quarterlies

Somehow I’m a crusader
Can label you a hater
While I say “nominate
anybody with a baby-maker” “

Jeff Beck & Imelda May – Rock n Roll

 

 

 

 

Published on June 30, 2013

” One of the most influential and charismatic in the history of rock guitarists, mainly for his seminal work with the Yardbirds and diversity of styles.

  After passing through the Wimbledon School of Art Art in London, Jeff Beck (born June 24, 1944 Surrey) began professionally in the world of music with a band called The Tridents. His big break came when Eric Clapton left the Yardbirds in 1965 to understand that they moved away from blues and welcomed more commercial sounds.

  Beck’s entry into the group opened new perspectives for English training with his imaginative style, making the band pioneers of psychedelic pop-rock and mirrors the American garage with his innovations in distortion and feedback.

  Also Beck decided to quit the Yardbirds in 1966 to form a new group that called Jeff Beck Group, set in the future were Faces, Rod Stewart and Ron Wood, with keyboardist Nicky Hopkins and drummer Aynsley Dunbar, who was replaced by Mickey Waller.

  Before that and Mickey Most as a producer, Jeff had recorded a simple pop that had been well received in the British charts, “Hi-Ho Silver Lining”.

  With the Jeff Beck Group, Surrey guitarist adopted a rocky and powerful sound based on the blues-rock.
Their live performances were enthusiastically received. Alongside them, the band released two essential Lps, “Truth” (1968) and “Beck-Ola” (1969), both produced by Mickey Most. In 1970 the group ceased to exist.
After suffering a car accident which prevented the creation of supertrío Beck, Bogert and Appice with Vanilla Fudge members Tim Bogert and Carmine Appice, Jeff Jeff Beck Group reformed with new components, recruiting the singer Bobby Tench, bassist Clive Chapman, drummer Cozy Powell and keyboardist Max Middleton.

” Rough and Ready” (1971) was the first Lp of the new project, a job that failed to sell too in Britain despite its attractive mix of jazz, funk and rock.
“The Jeff Beck Group” (1972), an album produced by Steve Cropper, also failed to draw the attention of press and public, which led to the final Beck Appice and Bogert binding, who had begun prior experience with Cactus.

  The trio also failed to reach valid conclusions and another interesting project of Jeff finished collapsing.
“Blow by blow” (1975), a large Lp blues-rock with jazz scraps produced by George Martin , like “Wired” (1976), were two important works of Jeff Beck fully recovered.
After a live album recorded in 1977 with Jan Hammer, Beck published works very occasionally, without returning to the studies to 80s.

  His new album, co-produced with Ken Scot, took the title of “There and Back” (1980), an album continued by Lps as “Flash” (1985) album produced by Nile Rodgers and Arthur Baker he returned to associate with Rod Stewart on a version of “People get ready” and “Jeff Beck’s Guitar Shop” (1989), one of the best jobs in the last stage of his career that afforded him a Grammy Award.

  In the years 90 published by Jed Leiber’s soundtrack telefilm “Frankie’s House” (1992), a tribute album to Gene Vincent called “Crazy Legs” (1992) and “Who else” (1999), Lp in which Beck showed his ability to accommodate current sound times.

  Also the legendary guitar this great amateur automotive appeared in collaborations with various artists like Donovan, Tina Turner, Mick Jagger, Rod Stewart and Roger Waters, offering his expertise in the six strings Service of hard rock, blues, psychedelia, jazz or pop-rock. “

Australian BASE Jumper Nathan J Jones Completes Incredible Wingsuit ‘High Five’

 

 

 

 

 

” An Australian BASE jumper has pulled off the seemingly impossible to complete what is thought to be the world’s first air-to-ground ‘high five’.

  Nathan J Jones from Avoca Beach did the death-defying stunt in early December for Project BASE to raise awareness for a water well project in the Amhara region of Africa.

  Footage shows Jones skimming just metres above boulders and tree tops in Chamonix before smashing through a large hand held up by another member of their team.

  The leap was filmed by Sam Hardy and was dedicated to “absolute legend and good friend’ Alex Duncan, the West Australian BASE jumper who died in the Swiss Alps earlier this year.”

Obama To Troops You Guys Are Like Santa In Fatigues

 

 

 

Published on Dec 15, 2014

” The president got nothing but a polite chuckle or two after comparing his audience with Saint Nick on Monday.

Obama silences military audience with ‘Santa in fatigues’ joke at New Jersey base

The president got nothing but a polite chuckle or two after comparing his audience with Saint Nick on Monday

  The president was greeted in New Jersey by U.S. Senators Robert Menendez and Cory Booker as well as Governor Chris Christie

  President Obama left a New Jersey military audience awkwardly silent Monday with an awkward Christmas joke that totally bombed.

‘ You never stop giving,’ Obama told a Fort Dix audience of military members and their families. ‘You guys are like Santa in fatigues.’

  According to Business Insider, the president managed to salvage the humorous moment with another joke comparing a cargo plane that sat nearby to Santa’s reindeer-drawn ride.

‘ Although I’ll bet one of those C-130’s is a little more efficient than Santa’s sleigh,’ he said.

  The audience reacted slightly better that time.

  Obama spoke to hundreds of the camouflage-wearing troops in a hangar at Fort Dix to thank the U.S. military for its actions around the world. In a display of bipartisan support for the troops, Obama was joined by New Jersey’s Republican Governor Chris Christie, a potential candidate to succeed Obama in 2016.

  The U.S.-led coalition in Syria and Iraq has had some successes against the Islamic State group but has yet to force a major rollback from the territorial gains the extremists made in seizing large swathes of Iraq last summer.

‘ Make no mistake. Our coalition isn’t just going to degrade this barbaric terrorist organization. We’re going to destroy it,’ Obama said.

  Obama said gains are being made. Hundreds of vehicles and tanks and more than 1,000 fighting positions have been taken out, he said.

‘ We are hammering these terrorists,’ he said.

  ‘They may think that they can chalk up some quick victories, but our reach is long. We do not give up. You threaten America, you will have no safe haven. We will find you and like petty tyrants and terrorists before you, the world is going to leave you behind and keep moving on without you, because we will get you,’ Obama said.

  Obama also said the United States is on track to end its combat mission in Afghanistan at year’s end, leaving behind a force dedicated to training Afghan security forces and carrying out counter-terrorism operations.

  Obama last month approved a slight expansion in the U.S. role in the counter-terrorism operations. There are concerns in Afghanistan, however, about increasing Taliban attacks in the capital, Kabul.

  Obama, who made ending the war in Afghanistan a priority, said challenges remain there. “

Some notes that came with the show:

  Johnny Winter Timeline 1977
After playing “Rock and Roll” for several years, in 1977 Johnny Winter returns to his musical roots: playing the real blues. His stage shows become calmer; he ceased to jump around from one side of the stage to the other; while playing rough guitar riffs. Now he remains seated, close to the mike. For recordings he uses the notorious all metallic self-made John Velano guitar with the thin silver neck.

  Johnny Winter produces the grammy award winning album “Hard again” with Muddy Waters which launches the comeback of Muddy

  Muddy Waters : during an interview on Johnny:

  Tim: Talking about collaborations, I was curious how you got together with Johnny Winter.

  Muddy: I met Johnny in Austin, Texas. He opened the show for me back in ’60, I think.

  Tim: And how did his producing your Blue Sky album come to be?

  Muddy: He was on it. He was with CBS, and CBS distributed Blue Sky, and the guy that owned Blue Sky was Johnny’s personal man all the way through, Steve Paul. So we was looking for a record contract, and when my manager went to CBS, they said, “Well, we got a good place to put him.” And they put me on Blue Sky with Johnny. ‘Cause see, Johnny, he loves me, because he learned a lot of things under my music. He likes me personally as a friend. So when he heard that we wanted him to produce the record and all — Man, that was just what he wanted. It’s like a little family thing we got. So we did good over there. This is the fourth one out, and we done won three Grammy awards. Every one we put out, we win. This might be the one this time, who knows.

  Tim: That’s kind of a strange partnership. He’s a relative newcomer to the blues compared to you.

  Muddy: Yeah, definitely. He’s a young boy, compared to me. But he learned under my records, and people like me. But he mostly studied my records when he was a kid coming up. And a lot of more of ‘em did too.

  Tim: And he’s helped to bring the blues to a bigger population, wouldn’t you say?

  Muddy: Sure. Definitely.

  Muddy about Johnny : ‘Cause see, Johnny, he loves me, because he learned a lot of things under my music. He likes me personally as a friend. So when he heard that we wanted him to produce the record and all — Man, that was just what he wanted. It’s like a little family thing we got. So we did good over there. This is the fourth one out, and we done won three Grammy awards. Every one we put out, we win. This might be the one this time, who knows.”

Video Recording © 1971, 2013 Robert C Lewis – incidentally my first ever 2-camera live-switch direction – and without camera monitors or a clue … recorded on an IVC 1″ – and transferred to 3/4″ that wouldn’t play because of tape breakdown – careful pre-baking and dozens of headcleaning sessions, most of the set finally played well enough to post. I’ve omitted really unwatchable parts but left it if the distortion was short. thanks for watching … “

” Woah: Man Gets His Head Stomped To The Ground By Police Officer Because He Told Him To Stop Blocking Traffic!

    Sacramento sheriff’s deputy caught on video beating man with his flashlight

  Law enforcement officer in California forcefully stomps a man’s head into the concrete ground following an altercation that escalated after the man asked the cop to move his sqaud car from blocking the road.

  Video has emerged of a law enforcement officer in California forcefully stomping a man’s head into the concrete ground following an altercation that escalated after the man asked the cop to move his sqaud car from blocking the road.

  KCRA reports that a Sacramento County sheriff’s deputy was also captured on video by another citizen striking the man hard with a flashlight after pepper spraying him in the face and electrocuting him with a taser.

  The man seen in the video, 51 year old John Madison Reyes, says that the incident started when he asked the deputy to move his car as it was blocking the road.

“ I asked him kindly to move the car,” Reyes said. “He glared at me and stared at me. And then, I said an expletive, ‘You need to move the car because I can’t get through.’”

  That’s when things took a turn for the worse.

  Reyes, now covered in bruises, said that the officer began to question him about being on probation, after he was previously arrested for drug possession and carrying a concealed weapon.

  The exchange devolved into physical altercation when Reyes “resisted arrest,” according to a sheriff’s spokeswoman.

  The video begins with the deputy standing over Reyes, who is lying on the ground. He then forcefully stomps his head into the ground with his boot, and begins striking him repeatedly with a flashlight.

“ America help me!” Reyes cries, saying “this officer is abusing me in public.”

  When the deputy orders Reyes to lie on his stomach, he yells back, “I’m trying to” and “I’ll turn over if you let me up.”

  Reyes told reporters that it was impossible for him to turn over because he was being tasered. “How can I roll over when my body’s twitching with 100,000 volts going through it,” Reyes said.

  Sacramento County Undersheriff Jaime Lewis, who is now conducting an “investigation,” claims that the video isn’t representative of the entire incident. “Let’s face it, had the subject complied with the officer’s directives from the initial contact and beyond, we wouldn’t be sitting here talking about this today,” Lewis said, noting that the officer has been placed on paid administrative leave while “concerning” portions of the video are assessed.

  The witness who shot the video, Michael White, says that Reyes was not resisting arrest and had not done anything wrong.

“ The cop was walking around him, and he Tased him several times, and you could see the guy’s body convulse about three or four times,” White said. “And he’s not yelling or anything. He was not trying to get away.”

“ I think [the officer] should get fired,” White said. “I think he should go to jail. I don’t think administrative leave is enough.” “
