How to Write Music

How to Write Music

When you write music, you should do it with lust and passion. The song should evoke the highest sentiments of the spirit. You should be able to sing the glorious melody on the peak of Mount Everest…the wind blowing through your  hair.

Do away with the “clever” postmodernism. The rearranging of order for the sake of re-arranging. The charlatans that offer a cerebral type of “music talk.” Reject the latest media dilettante: the plastic artist whose “music” is nothing more than the marching orders of a Frankfurt school.

We’re talking about music here: an elevator to the human soul. It’s no small matter, no trinket that’s placed on your mantle as a nifty collection. It’s the reflection of your greatest emotions.

Music is about a personal revolution; not a social one.

The lofty strings, the majestic horns. Humanity stretching forward to witness the grandeur of the moment. The deepest well of human lust…the highest peak of a man’s passion. The greatness of the human experience, embodied in the floating air waves.

That is music!!!

The Greatness of Henry Ford Was in His DNA

The Greatness of Henry Ford Was in His DNA

I’m reading My Life and Work by Henry Ford. It’s important to read the autobiographies of GREAT MEN: primary sources being superior to secondary ones, generally speaking.

In a revealing part of the story, he discusses the first time he ever witnessed a machine other than a horse-drawn carriage. He was sitting on a wagon with his father when he saw a primitive road engine passing by. Ford—only 12 at the time—was mesmorized. Without any coaxing, he approached the engineer and began asking questions in order to learn more:

The engine had stopped to let us pass with our horses and I was off the wagon and talking to the engineer before my father, who was driving, knew what I was up to.

Nobody pushed him to learn more…he did it himself. No social programs were created to help him “find his passion”: the passion was already inside of him. In short, nature is stronger than nurture. You have a destiny with greatness or you don’t.

Note that many children would be apathetic in the same scenario. They’d be dreaming of a toy, staring at a cloud, or thinking of a fantasy. Others would be interested, but would remain seated. But not Henry Ford. He was pro-active, jumping at the opportunity to challenge his intellect.

The greatness of Henry Ford was written in his DNA.

You Have to Support the Prejudice of Your Spouse If You Want to Stay Happily Married

You Have to Support the Prejudice of Your Spouse If You Want to Stay Happily Married

Everybody has a prejudice. For some, it might relate to a group of people: blacks, whites, Jews, Muslims, etc. For others, it might relate to a topic: abortion, adoption, patriotism, etc. The prejudice comes from years of personal experience. And by the time that person becomes an adult, the prejudice becomes ingrained in their personality. If you remove the prejudice of the individual, you remove an important aspect of their personality.

Again, everybody has at least ONE prejudice.

If you want to stay happily married, you have to support the main prejudice of your partner. You can’t play the contrarian: “Yes honey, but…” Or, “I don’t think you’re considering the following…” Only a fool would contradict their spouse in this regard.

man and wife
They supported the prejudices of one another for 50 years

My wife has a prejudice against a certain group of people. But she is not alone…every woman that I’ve dated has had a prejudice of some sort! So I never contradict her. I either agree with her or remain silent. And she does the same for me; she understands the bias I have on certain topics and she never contradicts me in this regard.

The secret to marriage is being able to respect the discrimination and bigotry that lies in your partner.

Relationship experts will tell you the opposite. They’ll tell you to overcome your bias, to live in a cotton-candy universe. They’ll repeat the globalist agenda of the day…all the while ignoring the realities of marriage. In short, they reserve the right to be secretly prejudiced, yet they want you to remove yours.

Remember: If you want to stay happily married, you have to support the prejudice of your partner.

In Appreciation of “Sleepwalk”

Todd Clayton does a great job on this version of “Sleepwalk”: a classic instrumental tune that conjures up feelings of tranquility, desire and sadness. I remember the first time I heard the song. It transfixed me and I was drawn into its web. The popularity of the song shows that I am not alone in that sentiment.

Enjoy your Saturday, my friends. Remember that God is good…even if the world if often clouded with darkness.

Hitler’s Bar Mitzvah

Hitler’s Bar Mitzvah

I’ve noticed that conspiracy theories are like a drug addiction. It starts with a little hit….a small injection on a Friday night. Perhaps an enthralling two hours of JFK by Oliver Stone. The mystery leaves you with a cerebellum rush! But then addiction deepens. You start overdosing on false flag theories, Reptillian shape shifters, and space aliens in Egypt.

From there, it’s a only a short jump to another outlandish theory – Hitler was Jewish. I’ve heard this bandied about on the internet. And the other night, a neighbor of mine repeated this idea. I just nodded (it’s best not to disagree with people you see on a regular basis). Save the arguments for things that matter!

I’ve actually read Mein Kampf. And from that book, it’s pretty clear that Hitler hated the Jewish people. He discusses  – in great detail – the reason behind his hatred. He provides a number of examples, anecdotes, etc. But nowhere in the book does he mention a Jewish uncle, a bar mitzvah, or a circumcision. His autobiography, not to mention the history of WW2, should be ample proof that he hated the Jews.

We could discuss the implications of the theory in detail. Was WW2 a globalist hoax? Was Hitler a planted stooge, put into power by the world banking industry? Or was the entire war a theatrical front…an event that never even existed? All of these questions are pointless, of course.

Conspiracy theories are rarely about the conspiracy; they’re mostly about the theorist and his quest for power.

The conspiracy theorist is trying to subvert your knowledge. He’s trying to convince you that your ideas cannot be trusted. To use a Manosphere term, he’s trying to gaslight you. By inserting false information about the past, he can make you question your own sanity. And when the confusion reigns, he can assert his power over you.

Now I’m not stubborn or pig-headed. I’m willing to learn new things, or to deepen my knowledge. But outlandish theories require proof! We need examples, anecdotes, or studies. We need empirical evidence.

Show me photos of Hitler’s Bar Mitvah and I’ll believe that he was Jewish.

On the Birth of Minor Styles (My Son)

On the Birth of Minor Styles (My Son)

Minor Styles arrived on Saturday. My wife was feeling dizzy so we went to the doctor to check it out. After a series of exams, we heard the news – the umbilical cord was choking Minor Styles. Long story short…time for an emergency C-Section.

The good news: I have a healthy baby boy. We pulled him out before any damage was done. He is 6.5 pounds and my kingdom has added a noble prince:

Welcome to the world…my prince.

 

On Robbie Robertson’s Version of “Broken Arrow”

On Robbie Robertson’s Version of “Broken Arrow”

Robbie Robertson is not a great singer, per se. Note how most of the vocal duties in The Band were carried by Levon Helm or Rick Danko. However, his voice is serviceable: it’s more of a conversational tone than an operatic one.

However, sometimes a song is just made for a singer…and “Broken Arrow” was made for Robertson.

Sure, Rod Stewart did a great version. And Stewart is the more professional singer with the amazing, raspy tone, etc. (We won’t talk about the Phil Lesh version). I love Phil, but he’s not a singer.

For my money, Robertson’s version is the best one – it has that extra “spark.” And he wrote it after all!

Often times, only the original composer can channel the emotional center of a song.
