” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

 

After a hard day at work check out your local country station.  The same thing that happened in the 60′ to rock  is happening now in country.

a infusion of other genres of music within the structure of country but it is still retaining its roots.

The layering of melodies harmonies back up voices and yelling  rapping gospel and footstomping fiddler music is intricate… if you really listen to it-

The bands the musicianship THE BANDS!!! the guitar licks – 

Ask me how I know by Garth Brooks is a masterpiece- there is nothing you could add to that song it is a world unto itself- bresthtaking…

( too many fab artists to mention all of them)

a remembrance of what American ideals use to be respect dignity friendship and good old fun roaming around in cornfields and dusty backroads pondering the meaning of life..

Anyway check it out !! I can gaurantee you will dance!!

 

Peace

Me Too…Only I Did A Hepburn and Davis…

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

Yes, I too have a few stories to tell but- I took matters into my own hands and respectively told the guy to buzz off in no uncertain terms and in the other instance landed my arm between his shoulder blades – the only time I ever hit anyone, it happened in public at The Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

One guy in the crowd said “aw he was just joking.”

another guy said ” Good for you. he deserved it.”

The details are not important except for the fact that I was 19 and 26 respectively at the time –

The question to ask is what would have Bette Davis or Katheran Hepburn don– if asked to watch something —to get a job…

I am not talking about rape or physical assault -I am talking about being somewhere and having to deal with a jerk- What would Susan B. Anthony do?  

I am talking about the fact that men are not more powerful than women– we are equal that is what the feminists of the past, taught me.

Country Is A little Remembrance Of What Music Use To Be

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog ”

Music use to build one upon the other, the footsteps of the past shadowed the steps taken in the pressent.

Country has resisted corporatization, I think because it is based on the so -called red necks which were in reality US citizens that wore a red ‘neckerchiek (oops my red neck beginnings are sneakin out) round their necks who resisted the big bosses and fought for unions and  justice.

They were labeled red- necks in an effort to discredit them by the powers that be at that time – in fact they were the remnants and still are of the original American revolution!!

A I listened to the litany of what a red neck is I realized I am ONE – my grandfather was a coal miner in Wilkesbarre my father repaired railroads got his law degree in Louisville Kentucky working at the derby to make ends meets – my other grandparents grew up on farms- all served their country when the call came even my marine mother!-

Semper Fi!!  Yes from Daniel Boone ( whom I am descened from- his brother Squire Boone) to today my family has lived of the land  – I guess Daniel Boone was a red neck too …

Freedom is the link between all us red necks we love it and will stand up for it.

So listen to some red neck country music today and you will be dancing by tonight!

Peace
