I Need A Hair Peace

October 9th, 2010 by sonrisas

always torn by just regurgitating old, well known video especially considering this isn’t mass communicatin…but i see people using glen beck as their primary source of information and i figure the only way to potentially get through to a person like that is via pop culture…and it’s nice when pop culture can be so called weird to the masses.

Manifesto

Yo no canto por cantar
ni por tener buena voz
canto porque la guitarra
tiene sentido y razón
tiene corazón de tierra
y alas de palomita
es como el agua bendita
santiguas glorias y penas
aquí se encajó mi canto
como dijiera Violeta
guitarra trabajadora
con olor a primavera

Que no es guitarra de ricos
ni cosa que se parezca
mi canto es de los andiamos
para alcanzar las estrellas
que el canto tiene sentido
cuando palpita en las venas
del que morirá cantado
las verdades verdaderas
no las lisonjas fugazes
ni las famas extranjeras
sino el canto de una lonja
hasta el fondo de la tierra

Ahí donde llega todo
y donde todo comienza
canto que ha sido valiente
siempre será canción nueva
siempre será canción nueva
siempre será canción nueva

“I don’t sing for love of singing
or to show off my voice
but for the statements
made by my honest guitar
for its heart is of earth
and like the dove it goes flying
tenderly as holy water
blessing the brave and the dying
so my song has found a purpose
as Violetta Parra would say
yes, my guitar is a worker
shining and smelling of spring
my guitar is not for killers
greedy for money and power
but for the people who labour
so that future may flower
for a song takes on a meaning
when its own heartbeat is strong
sung by a man who will die singing
truthfully singing his song

I don’t sing for adulation
or so that strangers may weep
I sing for a far strip of country
narrow but endlessly deep
in the earth in which we begin
in the earth in which we end
brave songs will give birth
to a song which will always be new”





Must See Documentary

April 14th, 2010 by Jaime

This Documentary won the Special Jury Prize at the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam (IDFA). I was lucky enough to see the woman receive the prize for it at the encore viewing.

It is truly an amazing set of circumstances wrapped around one person simply doing the right thing instead of his J O B.

If I may be so bold, you live (and will for a long time continue to live) in a world shaped by the events in this documentary …. you will be inspired by this human being and, according to him, ignore him just as quickly as you were inspired. I think you might be amazed how little you knew about these events - and wonder why.

Then try to believe 9/11 was an “outside job” one more time … you won’t be able to do it.

See this Documentary if it kills you.

Ok - if that didn’t work - the things a VERY FRUSTRATED Nixon says will make it worth the viewing - Ok?
