MK Ultra – The Re-education of Lauryn Hill

More evidence of the Hollywood mindfuck industry that yesterday saw Annie Lennox and last week Sinead O’Connor slamming the convergence of pop music with pornography that is turning performers (!) like Miley Cyrus and Rhianna into camera fuckers.

Lauryn Hill Ordered by the Court to Undergo ‘Counseling’ Due to her ‘Conspiracy Theories’

‘The name of Lauryn Hill’s breakout album was The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill but it now appears that the powers that be would like her to record a new album called The Re-Education of Lauryn Hill. After appearing in court for tax evasion, Hill was sentenced to three months in jail PLUS she must attend “counseling” due to her “conspiracy theories”.

According to the IBTimes, Hill told the court: “I am a child of former slaves who had a system imposed on them. I had an economic system imposed on me.” Furthermore, Hill also believes that artists are being oppressed by (what the article calls) “a plot involving the military and media”. Because of these statements, Hill was ordered to undergo “counseling”, which is a way of saying that she is mentally ill and that she needs some sort of re-programming session regain “sanity”.’

Too Hot To Twerk – Another erotic dancing epic fail

If you thought Miley Cyrus’ twerking at the VMA awards was too sphincter clenchingly embarrassing to catch on. The dance performed by Miss C and based on Keith Lemon’s dry humping technique as spawned a host of imitators, all eager to post their even less erotic efforts on You Tube.

As usual however, some people just went too far. Here’s one young lady whose twerking was just too hot to be classed as erotic. Witness the worst twerking disaster ever …

Now We Know Scientists Are Weird And Sexless

Well we knew before, but the evidence was not conclusive as the science wallahs would say. Now the matter is beyond doubt.

A study by scientists at McGill University, Montreal has concluded that listening to music is as good as sex (full story).

Listening to a new piece of music sparks the same part of the brain triggered by a delicious meal or a night of passion said Dr Valorie Salimpoor, leader of the research project. Scans found areas in the brain’s ‘pleasure’ centre became active when people heard a song for the first time.

And the more the listener enjoyed what they were hearing, the stronger the connections were in the reward region known as the nucleus accumbens. This is operated by the chemical dopamine which promotes desire.

Do you get the impression that none of the people involved in this research have ever had a good shag.

A Sea Symphony?

The violin that was played by the brave bandmaster on the Titanic can be revealed for the first time.

The wooden instrument used by Wallace Hartley as the band famously played on while the liner sank was thought to have been lost in the Atlantic in the 1912 disaster. Incredibly the instrument was rescued after drifting in the Atlantic Ocean for ten days.

Though the rescue was reported at the time nobody knew what became of the violin which was lost for many decades.In 2006 the son of an amateur musician who had been casually given the instrument by her violin teacher unearthed it in the attic of the old lady’s home.

Now, after seven years of forensic testing the violin has been proven to be the one played by Hartley on the night of the tragedy.

Though still in working order the violin will only play Handel’s Water Music. Full story at The Daily Mirror

Not like a bat out of hell. Songs to drive safely by.

In yet another scientific research project aimed at proving science is a career for tossers who like to have lots of time on their hands and do not have enough imagination to fill it intelligently, a bunch of scientists have been researching which songs are the safest to drive to.

Each of the songs in the top ten have an optimum tempo of a song for safe driving, mimicking the human heartbeat at around 60 to 80 beats per minute.

Among the top ten safest songs to drive to are Come Away With Me by Norah Jones, I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing by Aerosmith and Tiny Dancer by Elton John. Anyone who would listen to that crap would never dare risk going above 30 mph of course so we must assume the science did not extend to looking at the risk of being rear ended by Jeremy Clarkson. Actually I wouldn’t mind read ending Norah Jones myself.

The Scientist by Coldplay and Justin Timberlake’s Cry Me a River also appeared in the top 10. A song called The Scientist? And it’s by Coldplay. What kind of driver would listen to that? They don’t sell Ladas in this country any more do they? Morris Minor drivers maybe? Tofu noshing G Wiz drivers?

The study, conducted at London Metropolitan University, also revealed the type of songs that cause motorists to drive dangerously.

Now this is what really pisses me off about scientists. FFS why do they insist on trying tell us what we already know and then getting it wrong.

The songs most likely to result in a write off, as any fule kno, are:

Bat Out Of Hell – Meat Loaf,
Paranoid – Black Sabbath,
Born To Run – Bruce Springsteen,

none of which were named by the study.

Having said that, I’ve always like to get my wellie down to O Fortuna from Carmina Burania.

Sex And Folk Music: A Dodgy Cocktail

Having been a folk fan in the 1960s when it was all Bob Dylan Donovan, Joan Baez, Vashti Bunyan (now there’s a name to exercise the memory cells) Fairport Convention and such, I recall folk being quite sexy. Maybe that was just an impression I formed because folk females who wore gauzy semi see through tops with no bra and doused themselves in Patchouli Oil tended to be more gererous with their favours, so much so in fact that us male folk followers were even willing to persuade ourselves Patchouli smells quite nice.

Ah the wonderful shallowness of those who would pretend they are serious minded.

It was all too short lived, that folk boom. Dylan went electric, Donovan went bonkers and Vashti Bunyan went off in a gypsy caravan. For years Richard Thompson and The Dubliners held the fort against the return of Aran sweater and Jesus sandals folk, the blokes with beer bellies and fuck off beards who would stand with a finger in their ear as they droned a capella through all 579 verses of The Ballad Of Blind Old Tom or something.

Sometime in the last few years modern folk has staged a bit of a comeback. The Pogues and The Levellers had provided a crossover between folk and indie which enabled live music fans to find their way to people like June Tabor and The Oysterband, Mumford and Sons and Laura Marling and to verterans like Martin Carthy and Steeleye Span.

Folk may be a bit of an acquired taste like the scent of Patchouli Oil but the performers are all talented and are eccentics, more interested in music than fame. A night out at a folk gig can be a great experience in an era that has seen rock and pop sanitised, plasticised and given a corporate makeover. The performers are real people and love what they do.

It’s hardly likely of course that Maddie Prior of Steeleye Span could still be the thinking man’s sex symbol but some of the younger acts both male and female are trying to sex up the genre. It will be great if they can and a bit of sex appeal goes a long way. There isn’t much substance behind the gloss of modern girl and boy bands, manufactured droids all of them, so the real people of the folk scene, people who might not boast surgically enhanced faces and bodies but who look as if thery would be game for a tuppeny upright backstage between their spots, have a chance.

A great regular in my part of the world gig for seeing fresh talent is The Hole Note in Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire, where if you are lucky you make see my son performing as Brother Bastion.

Or if you like remoteness you can try The Green Dragon at Hawes, (Yes, it is the pub Tolkein describes in The Hobbit – he once taught at nearby Stonyhurst College.) It’s a bit out of the way but a wonderful setting.

A Fistful of Dollars for a Few Dollars More

The world lost another 80’s icon this week in the form of Whitney Houston. However, what bothers me more is that a few days after reading of Whitney’s sad demise, I read that the remake of the film The Bodyguard has been given the go ahead.

Is it not enough that the music industry has been taken over by Simon Cowell and a string of one-hit wonders, who are basically a variation on a similar theme every year? Is it not enough that Simon Cowell is also partly responsible for a string of crap reality TV shows where people just want to become famous, although they’re not sure why? Is it not enough that young girls want to be a WAG when they grow up?

Apparently not. The lack of ability among film makers to come up with imaginiative and original ideas is becoming increasingly tedious. Films that were just fine the first time round and have achieved the status of classic do not need to be remade.

The Italian Job, Alfie, Oceans Eleven (the sequels of which were definitely not required there), Point Break, Dirty Dancing, The Bodyguard to name a few. I have a sinking feeling this trend will continue for a few more years to come. With the exception of Oceans Eleven, the ones I have witnessed have been a waste of time and effort and the money could have been put to better use setting up an ostrich farm, which is equally pointless but would create jobs and the end product would be high in nutrients at least.

Please don’t misunderstand me, in no way do I believe that The Bodyguard is one of the best films af all time. Give me John Hughes and Martin Scorsese any day. But we really don’t need to see it rehashed for the sake of a few bob, do we?

Zombies Getting Back Together?

Older punters may remember the Zombies, younger followers of Boggart Blog will perhps have heard their biggest hit “She’s Not There” with singer Colin Blunstone straining his vocal cords to sing way above his natural range and behind him probably the greatest bassline in rock music ever.

Well it seems the Zombies may be getting back together. Old rock stars are coming back from the dead all over the world.

The latest is a man who recently made the news in South Africa by claiming he is the late Zulu traditional music singer Khulekani Khumalo, also known as “Mgqumeni.” The man arrived at the musician’s home last week at Nqutu village in east South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal province.

News that the musician had returned spread like wildfire, prompting fans to descend on his home. The putative Khumalo claimed that he had fallen victim to witchcraft but that he was rescued by his ancestors. He did not die, he added, but was kept with zombies in a place he could not recall.

There must be something about death that Boggart Blog should be putting in bottles and selling on line. The Zombie Mgqumeni is considerably younger than the one who died in 2009.

Announcing a comeback tour at a press conference the singer said the line up for his new band will include John Bonham, Jimi Hendrix and John Entwistle.

He was later arrested and is currently in custody pending a criminal investigation. Detectives have been questioning the man this morning and are conducting further investigation, said police spokesman Jay Naicker.
