The Making of Rubber Soul vinyls, 1965
Almost as good as the photo of people getting to test every copy to make sure it sounded good enough; dream job.
wonder if they each had a favorite tune on this album?
God save us from people who mean well.
Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.
Freedom isn’t free
Fifty years ago citizens were not considered a threat. You could buy machine guns and dynamite at your local hardware store. Fast forward fifty years and our elected government considers us such a threat that we can’t be trusted with more than 10 rounds and fireworks. I have to ask what has changed in fifty years, the citizens or our government? Why would they think we are a threat. Why do they cripple our economy. Why do they tax us to death and pay people to do nothing. Why do they divide us racially and by gender to make us weak as a nation. Why do they dumb down our children and teach them all alike. Why do they legalize drugs and open our borders to anybody and anything that wants to come in. Why do they pass laws to destroy our families and marriages. Why do they want to cripple our military while at the same time build huge internal bureaucracies that arm themselves with billions of rounds of ammo, tanks, humvees, and high explosives. What will our beloved country be like in 10 more years. I doubt I will live that long but I feel sorry for the youth who really don’t know any different. May God bless them and protect us all from evil hearts.
(some old guy who’s asking some great questions)
