BLIND SPOT: PEAK OIL AND THE COMING GLOBAL CRISIS

October 04, 2009

American television is filled to the brim these days with a bumper crop of very loud, off-the-cuff, not very well educated demagogic talking heads who have plenty to say but very little of it of any value outside of a sound bite for the next “24 hour news cycle.”

If you want a look at some serious, sober journalism that you won’t see on TV these days outside of PBS – and journalism that actually adds to the public knowledge – watch the video on the next page.

YO. DO YOU ZYDECO?

September 16, 2009

Both Cajun music and the Creole music that evolved into what is today called Zydeco are products of a combination of influences found only in Southwest Louisiana and nowhere else in the U.S.

These Cajun and Creole traditions of Southwest Louisiana are also unique in the way they blend European, African, and Amer-Indian musical influences.

It all started with the “Acadians” (later shortened to Cajuns) who came to Louisiana beginning in 1764 after their expulsion from Acadie (Nova Scotia ) in 1755.

They brought with them music that had its origins in France but that had already been changed by experiences in the New World through encounters with British settlers and Native Americans.

The music of Creole culture drew on the same French traditions as Cajun music but added to that the influence of African music in the New World – the rhythms of the Caribbean or the soulful melodies of the blues or a combination of these sources and more.

Through the years these influences fused into what is now called Zydeco.

Clifton Chenier, the King of Zydeco and a great Zydeco accordion player, sang many of his songs in Creole. Many other Zydeco bands include music from the older Creole tradition as part of their repertoire, so, in practice, the terminology used to describe “Creole music” in Southwest Louisiana can be applied in a variety of ways.

Check out some modern Zydeco with strong historical roots in this video from Lisa Haley & the Zydekats recorded before a live audience at Mad Dog Studios in Burbank, CA.

SHE NEEDS A MAN WHO’S GOT NO BAGGAGE TO CLAIM

September 15, 2009

If you’ve never heard of Melody Gardot then by all means allow us to bring her into your field of view for the first time.

Melody is one of the most interesting, refreshing jazz vocalist/musicians/songwriters to come down the road in a long time. And how she got here is an amazing story.

By all rights Gardot should be six feet under instead of recording and playing in jazz clubs around the world. Just a few short years ago she was horribly injured (almost died) in an accident. She was hit by a car while riding her bike. She has steel rods now in her spine among other problems. A day does not go by that she is not in pain.

At the time of the accident she was a visual artist. Unable to continue that career she turned inward to music as an art form she could still work.

Music gains what oil painting lost. To this day she lives and performs in constant pain from the life long injuries she sustained in that accident. She says performing on stage is one of the few times in her post-accident life where she doesn't seem to notice the pain. Gardot is a truly gifted artist who, in a big way, was able to turn lemons into lemonade.

The song she does live in this video is WORRISOME HEART the title cut of her first hit CD. CLICK READ MORE to bring the video player up.
