When Did it all go Bad?

Yeah, I have a third blog that I don't contribute to that much because it makes me feel like the guy with the septic pump truck making house calls.

But I feel like making a contribution. That's what my girlfriend and I will say to each other before we take a dump. On occasion we will announce to whose benefit this contribution is dedicated.

But here is where it started, way before the Nirvana pinheads when bad lyrics was the soup de jour-

“Let’s Dumb them Down”
“Ooh baby I love your way (everyday)
Ooh baby I love your way (everyday)
Shadows grow so long before my eyes
And they're moving across the page
Suddenly the day turns into night
Far away from the city
But don't hesitate 'cause your love just won't wait
Ooh baby I love your way (everyday)
I Wanna tell you I love your way
I Wanna be with you night and day
Moon appears to shine and light the sky
With the help of some fireflies
I wonder how they have the power to shine, shine, shine
I can see them under the pine
But don't hesitate 'cause your love just won't wait
Ooh baby I love your way (everyday)
Wanna tell you I love your way
Wanna be with you night and day
But don't hesitate 'cause your love just won't wait
I can see the sunset in your eyes
Brown and grey and blue besides
Clouds are stalking islands in the sun
I wish I could buy one out of season
But don't hesitate 'cause your love just won't wait
Ooh baby I love your way (everyday)
Wanna tell you I love your way
Wanna be with you night and day
Ooh baby I love your way (everyday)
Wanna tell you I love your way
Wanna be with you night and day”



This loathsome piece of shit was on an album that sold ten million copies. If I tried I couldn't write a song that bad. I think it was also number 1 as a single. It's right up there with Achey Breaky Heart.

I constantly ask myself, "are people that stupid?" But I don't take my own advice which is to research shit before you say it. I can be forgiven in this respect; it doesn't take much research. Recently Madonna said that anyone who interviews her must maintain eye contact. And they can't ask her about her publicity baby or any of that because there's larger money involved. There was another point, just on the cusp of disco when "I'm a material girl, living in a material world" came out.

I won't bore you to death with the transition of bad singers with no message like 'Smashing Pumpkins' and 'Stoned Temple Pilots' all I can say is that it turned me off music for good and that was a good thing because then came rap, sometimes called hip hop. sometimes called whatever they want to switch the marketing to.

Now you have thousands of songs you can't remember and it's not an accident. And it's all about 'bitches and ho's' and it's all good and fine because there's money in it, but god help you if the industry doesn't have your back.

Opps, before I forget, go listen to my 'ho'-mage to Madonna. Links being what they are here you have to travel a quick circuitous route. Go to www.lesvisible.com and then click on Les Visible and the Critical List and then in the right hand menu hit music. It's really easy. Trust me, you'll be amused.

Why am I writing this? Because for a long time I have been asking myself, "are people that stupid?" See... I thought they were just putting up with it and that it wasn't part of what they would have made their game plan; if they had had a choice, or a game plan.

I have come to understand that a huge majority of what passes for human beings on this benighted sphere actually like this stuff and will put up with it. Therefore, people actually are stupider than I ever imagined and it is no wonder that shit does happen.

Bad things are in the offing when a noted walking Pepsi Cola ad who sells sex that she can no longer deliver (fantasy wise) presumes to be studying the kabala with a couple of cats who are running a real estate scam. The thing about the Kabala is this- it's not mainstream. It cannot, after a certain point, be transmitted except in an interior bios flash and it is never transmitted by cats running real estate deals.

So it goes...Madonna- kabala- bo bana etc Tom Cruise and a legion of other types, Scientology; which is just the reactive mind... any idiot can do that on their own. Now Pope Rottweiler says that only people that pray in churches where the priests molest their children is qualified as an extension of God.

God's not interested in that shit. And God is not impressed. No one has ever described God. No one has ever comprehended God and therefore, no one is empowered to legislate or 'interpret' God.

You know the end is near when the most shallow people on earth are telling you what God intends and getting idiots to go to Walmart to buy a red string to tie around their wrist which is a direct ripoff of the Buddhist initiation ritual. But, let's face it, in a world where people really are that stupid...anything goes.

Those who say there is no God are actually correct. The God the atheists don't believe in doesn't exist. Their mistake is that they don't know what they mean; that that God is not real and those less wise take that as an excuse to shitcan the whole thing. I'm not here to tell you your business. You'll find out soon enough. I'm just saying.... it's weird out there and you ought to come in from the cold before you catch your death.

My grandmother used to tell me when I was a kid '99.9% of people don't get past 6 year olds, mentally'.
Through my life I have kept an eye out for the things my nan told me and I think she was 99.9% right.
The reason why your work doesn't reach 99.9% of the population is as my grandmother said, Les.
Please keep up your excellent work, knowing that there is a small fraction of a percent ‘out there’ that think you are one of the most brilliant writers around today.

That's exactly what I always found irritating about atheists, but never could put into words! Thank you for that, Les.

Atheists are so right about some things, but on the other hand, they totally don't get it that there's a spirituality beyond traditional religion.
