Can You Still Feel It?

O

One question: What happened to the New Age that we danced and meditated and held Hands Across America for? “Where is the love?” said Roberta and Donny and me, right now?

¿Dondé esta el amor, gente?

I understand that an “age” is about 2160 years. So “The New Age” of the mid Eighties that we ushered in with such sincere intentions for global peace and harmony should still be in full effect? N’est pas? Instead of unity, peace and understanding, we have racism raging, hate and violence expanding and (by the way) we are at FULL BLOWN WAR!! – the longest war in American history in fact and nobody even remembers or seems to acknowledge it! AFGHANISTAN – It’s more than a knitted throw. You should look into it.There’s a lot of murdering and child killing and corruption. Seriously, it’s even worse than MASH. But my beef with the entire earth right now, here today is, this is not what was supposed to be happening in 2019! By now “all the colors of the world should be lovin’ each other wholeheartedly” – remember? …from the video right up there? Those are the lyrics, folks, okay???

There’s only one possible solution to re-ignite the loving energies of that old New Age that our struggling planet so desperately needs again….A HANDS ACROSS AMERICA RE-DO!!!! YAAAASSSSS!!!!!! Bring it back in 2020! (OMG I just realised that next year will be sharing it’s name with Hugh Downs television vehicle. this is wrong on many levels)

And you can bet your ass I would be there AGAIN for it. When I remember Hands Across America I remember two things; being way too overly excited about the whole thing, and Lesley Chilkes singing at the top of her lungs out there along the West Side Highway on that gorgeous sunny day. Hey, we tried, we really did. So…who’s with me on this Hands2 project? Can I see a show of hands for Hands2 please? – Can we take it all the way around the world somehow? Does anybody have Richard Branson’s cell # ??? Anybody???? No??? Elon Musk’s land line….anybody???? No???? Okaaaayyyy……how about Hands Across 14th Street? maybe bringing it down could work? -No? no.

Well, looks we’re out of time for our first meeting. Great work, guys. I’m feeling this. Email me with your ideas and I’ll see you back here for our next meeting which is…let’s see…January 7th, 2051. Cool!

love you guys.

Hands2..think about it…we need ideas…sooooo, you know, ask other people for some and email me – or text me. LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!!

be safe…okay? safe home everybody. Great job today. Great meeting.. WE GOT THIS!!!!!

BYEEEEEEEEEEEE.

Roger Sanchez Presents Secret Weapons – There It Iz

This track makes me crazy…still. What was this, 1994? That was the golden arc of house music in New York. Thank you Jesus for putting me on the dancefloor through those times. I started listening tothis track again last week and well, it’s still playing. I’m not finished listening to it yet. The arrangement is the thing. It’s like it comes in backwards, then doesn’t arrive but then all of the sudden…THERE IT IZ, Y’ALL ! I think I’ll play it again while I’m writing this.

Roger Sanchez is just…I mean…the King of House Music? At the very least.

I never realized until very recently that in fact I have been in love with him for about thirty years. It’s a difficult situation since we have never met.

DJ Will Serving Your Main Course

This is such a unique and sophisticated mix. I wish I wouldn’t have fallen asleep last night and missed Will at Le Bains. Ooops. Will’s expertise is showing. I’ve recently been re-inspired to walk over to Vinymania and see what music I can find in hopes of being current and relevant. After listening to Will’s Main Course mix, I’m worried. It might be too hard…I think he bought all the good records… Give it a listen – it moves along an interesting path that seems perfectly mature to this over fifty house fan. (Wheeze) “Can you feel it?” – “yeah I feel it right here and also in my lower back and sometimes I get dizzy.” I’m feeling it.
