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.

The Jacksons – Walk Right Now

No idea what the lyrics mean – but Michael sounds great and this production is GLOSSY. (three horn hits) Valentina played this one on Thursday night  high up overlooking Manhattan from the closed in terrace of Company 3. It filled the floor. It’s a floor filler. When you just can’t listen to “Can You Feel It” one more time, throw this one on. It has all the same effects and did I mention?…(Three horn hits.) This would be a great track to teach a toddler how to count to three.

Written, produced, arranged and performed by The Jacksons, this track never made it past seventy-three but went to number seven in the UK in 1981 (when the music was better.) This is a special promo 12″ version. The album is TRIUMPH by
