  1. I liked Cheech and Chong. My best memory is a sketch called Dave's Not Here. It's so ridiculous, but it reminds me of some of the crazy conversations taking pace around me many years ago. https://www.google.com/search?q=dave%27s+not+here+cheech+and+chong&rlz=1C1CHBD_enGB870GB870&oq=Daves+not+here+cheech&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j0l7.14742j0j8&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
  2. I had a great Father's Day today. Cards and presents from my two sons which included a great bottle of Chardonnay. Mrs eq and I had this on the beach after a kayak on the estuary. Bliss

    And maybe next we could do just bicycles, or 'pushbikes' as we say in the UK? CV19 has created a surge in popularity for bicycles here, all the shops are sold out and there's a long waiting list. Fortunately, I already have one. Here's my song:

    I think that we get six? If so, here's #6, Chris Spedding and Motorbiking. It's from the mid 1970s and sort of punkish, which is unusual for biker songs.
  5. Jamaican dub reggae for me. I love the music of Lee 'Scratch' Perry, also known as Scratch and the Upsetters. This is a typical track called Zion's Blood. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFWr6hlbcJQ

    How about songs inspired by motorcycles. Here's Steppenwolf from Easy Rider: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egMWlD3fLJ8

    @Rebel77s post (great post) reminded me of this:
  8. To be frank, they didn't like the idea of a black person joining the royal family. They don't like women being and sounding too independent either, but if you first have a vaguely independent princess and then a second one comes along who is also black, then the first one transitions into a sort of Virgin Mary/Mother Theresa figure and the second becomes a devil. Good news for the Duchess of Cambridge, not so good for the Duchess of Sussex. Do the readers notice the manipulation? No, not at all. And why not? Because it reinforces their own conscious or unconscious racist views.
  9. The UK media is a complex mix of TV and newspapers. On TV, we don't have anything quite like Fox TV which is so overtly partisan. But in our newspapers we have an extraordinarily diverse group. I won't describe them all but the Daily Express and the Daily Mail are probably the most insidious. They are both right wing, but their readers don't seem to know this and believe that they are reading a balanced middle of the road newspaper. The reality is very different. The BBC really is an honest unbiased media source, but because the Express and Mail readers have been drip-fed right wing poison for so long, they rage against the BBC as a left wing biased broadcaster. Both newspapers are staunch monarchists and love the UK royal family. And being right wing, they didn't like having Meghan Markle join the British Royal Family at all. Hence all the anti Meghan stuff. But that's just one issue. They drive me mad and I see so many of my neighbours carrying these newspapers, or pre-CV19, I would see them with a copy in their supermarket trolleys. Once I've seen that I know that there's no point in talking with these people, they're lost and happily wallowing in the right wing swamp.

    Try this. It's a great alternative version of Hey Joe. Brilliant acoustic guitar playing and they switched the gender of the deceased
  11. This is so depressing to see. The (peaceful) Black Lives Matter protests have been one of the greatest joys of my life, albeit that they were prompted by a terrible killing. The positive responses have been wonderful. But somehow I knew that there would be a reaction and we saw it in the UK today. The anti-BLM protests brought out the people who make me ashamed to be British and English. I can only hope that my fellow citizens who may have felt neutral, or unmoved about racism in our country, see these videos and decide to get off the fence and speak.
