They start with the obligatory major-league Opening Ceremonies (the director of the opening ceremonies was fired today for an inappropriate joke he made in the 1990s), which will be presented to a mostly-empty stadium, although there will be representation from the various Olympic organizations, participating countries,  and sports groups from around the world.

THE SPELL IS BROKEN: NEW ORLEANS CANCELS VOODOO FEST 2021. BACK IN 2022…

 

 You’re going to have wait until next year to cast some new spells, learn the latest techniques for turning enemies into newts or pick up those custom voodoo dolls you ordered.

New Orleans has announced that their annual Voodoo Fest will take a time out in 2021 and return in 2022. The gathering, held over the Halloween weekend (what a great time to have it) features music, food, and, of course, more voodoo and spells than you shake a wand at. Here’s the official announcement. 

It’s a great excuse to visit New Orleans, and having the fest in fall fits in perfectly with the weather of the Crescent City, which tends to the muggy in late spring and summer. You never really need an excuse to visit New Orleans, but the Voodoo Fest is a great reason to visit it on schedule: who doesn’t like the things that make New Orleans terrific: food and music. And who wants to miss out on the chance to walk around town dressed in skeleton and witch doctor costumes….not that such behavior is ever frowned upon in America’s most colorful city.

DAFT PUNK WALKS OFF INTO THE SUNSET

 

 

It was, of course, going to end sooner or later. The French electro/techno/pop group Daft Punk has decided to break up after 23 years and six Grammy’s and a history of changing one segment of the music world. They were fearless, innovative, more interested in the music than the fame and money (what a nice change), and confident enough to work with the very best musicians of our time. You might want to go deep background on the duo-infamous for wearing helmets to keep their visual personal identities confidential–by reading Joe Coscarelli’s piece on them in the New York Times. 

The duo, notoriously private, perhaps realized that they were at the end of their musical road. All music is on a timeline, and what was ground breaking ten years ago may just seem to be a vision/sound that no longer syncs with the times a decade later. Whatever the reason, the reality is that they had a huge impact on music and music performance, and wrote, produced, and performed songs that were so often the perfect soundtrack for our times. There is no more music in their archives to be released (as far as we know), so they left it all on the field. Would we like to have more from Daft Punk? You bet. But we must also realize that artists create at their  own pace and they also have the right to stop when they feel it’s time. For Daft Punk, it was time. Thanks for the melodies.

Powerless

rTexas is frozen. The “energy state”, home to the nation’s largest oil and gas reserves and the center of America’s energy business, is suffering through a massive power outage that spans the entire Lone Star State. It is more than embarrassing–people are dying, businesses cannot open, restaurants cannot serve, gasoline supplies are running low, and water supplies are shut off, frozen, or empty. Across the state, frozen pipes and frozen citizens are the new icons of America’s self-appointed new destination for modern 21st century businesses run by people like Elon Musk (Tesla) and Larry Ellison(Oracle). Apple already has an outpost in Austin as does Facebook. But none of it will work without electricity. A lot of things went wrong in Texas for this event to happen and cause so much damage, but we’ll leave the analysis of that for another time. To see the real impact, the Media Bunker staff gathered up a stream of messages coming out from the Ring/Neighborhood network that show the real situations faced by citizens in just one section of Houston (for those keeping score, that would be the Southwest section of town, close to the “energy corridor” commercial development. Nothing has been edited up (to make things more dramatic) or down (to make things less severe). Screen captures were pulled off an iPhone. It’s a glimpse of the world without power and it’s pretty sobering.

The Super Game

This is a repost of an article that originally ran in 2017. It’s still relevant and worthy of your time.

Annals of IP: The Super Bowl is the biggest sporting event in America. It is the most lucrative, the most widely covered, the most highly coveted event in which to be a sponsor (so popular for advertising that many people watch the game..only for the commercials), with a thirty-second spot going for US$5.0 million (source; Bleacher Report). For that amount an advertiser has the chance to reach 114 million people with their message (no pressure, don’t blow it, just like the game).
But there’s another thing going on at the Super Bowl: it is also the most tightly controlled Trademark of the season.
A funny thing happens every year at Super Bowl time. Advertisers who want to jump on the Super Bowl bandwagon by associating themselves with the event without paying the necessary and required licensing fees are  kicked to the curb, because the NFL takes it Super Bowl rights very seriously.
Understand, first, that there are two elements of IP at play here. One is copyright: the NFL owns the right to the game and rebroadcasts, presentations, etc. It’s OK to see it with friends, fine to watch it in a sports bar (that’s getting the signal legally, of course). Not fine to show it on a big screen and charge admission (that right is reserved to the league).  The NFL understands that the Super Bowl is part sports event and increasingly a major social event and they have evolved and relaxed their copyright rules to enable people to enjoy the game but not abuse the IP rights of the league and its owners.
The other element in the Super Bowl IP package is trademark rights and permissions of the name itself. The name is trademarked and that’s why local (or national or international advertisers) can’t have “Super Bowl” specials or “Super Bowl” promotions–unless they’ve paid for those rights, like the sponsors of the Super Bowl do. That’s why you hear the game referred to as “the big game” or  “the championship” or some other glancing reference. To understand precisely how this all works, here’s a ClickPak of articles on the IP issues surrounding America’s biggest football game.
The Superbowl trademark (Source: commonlawblog.com) 
Is The Superbowl proctected by Copyright or Trademark Law (Source: BroadcastLawBlog.Com)
Superbowl Trademark Rules You Should Know (Source: BeKnownforsomething.com) 
 
The Fine Print: Special thanks to the organizations (and the people inside them) who posted the articles referenced above about the IP of the Super Bowl. And thank you very much for sharing. One other point: if you deal in IP or media, it would be a good idea to put these sites into your bookmarks folder.  Enjoy…the big game.

The Revolution Will Be Televised

 

America was shocked by the events of 6 January 2021 when an angry, combative and armed mob stormed the U.S. Capitol building in an attempt to disrupt the certification of Joe Biden’s election as the next President of the United States. The coverage of this unprecedented event has dominated the airwaves, internet news and network television news shows and channels for the last week.

 

The net result of the Capitol attack was 5 people killed, hundreds either under arrest or about to be under arrest, and an impeachment charge against Donald J. Trump for inciting the riot after speaking to the crowd that gathered in front of the White House. Despite the very real threat to those in Congress (and the guards), the so-called “attempted coup” was suppressed, Biden’s election was certified, and now the investigations about precisely what happened, who was involved, and how it came to be, are in process.

What you may not know is that people in the mob that over-ran the Capitol police were filming/taping the event and in many cases live-streaming it to other like-minded and curious followers. Be fully informed on this key aspect of that very dark event by reading this terrific piece from The Columbia Journalism Review . 

You will be surprised (or maybe not)by the sophistication and monetization involved. We live in, perhaps, over-connected times.  Just remember this: if you do something in a public space of any kind, the odds are that someone is recording it.

2019: The Year in Lists

 No matter which way you look at it–the good, the bad, or the ugly–2019 was one of the most wildest, least predictable, over/under-hyped, culturally significant/insignificant years on record. The bad guys won more than their share of major events and the good guys somehow managed to stay in the game.  It was a year of outrageous personalities, incredible statements, ethics-bending, line-crossing, tweet-storming weirdness. Here’s hoping we don’t have a repeat of all that worldwide nonsense in 2020, but who knows.

But…and we’ve said this before, in this same space ….you never really know a year until you see it in a series of lists. And so, here again, is one of our favorite posts of all time, updated to fit the mood and the times: The Year In Lists. You shall know us by what we track and recognize–sobering to be sure.

Re-Set: 2021

Embed from Getty Images

The Latest Word:
New Year’s Day is the most important day of the year.
Unlike religious holidays, it is universally celebrated and universally enjoyed.
New Year’s Day requires no special decorations (confetti is nice, but not necessary); has no special set of colors (unlike the red and green of Christmas), is non-denominational and completely international. It wraps the globe like a warm wave of positive energy, moving from culture to culture as the grey line of propagation makes its daily revolution around the planet.
For Americans, the New Year—in this case 2019– starts on one side of the world and in a vastly different time zone (Asia), and then works its’ way around to us, arriving—conveniently for network television—at prime time in America.
Midnight is the demarcation line and seldom has midnight had more importance. Within the space of one minute, one year will go and another one will arrive. One door shuts and another one opens; it’s concrete and finite and everyone on earth knows it.
Unlike much in modern life, it is unequivocal; there is no room for debate or no grey area: 2020 Out. 2021, In. Carry on.
The New Year comes in; the old one goes out and you get a re-set.
Whether or not you are the type that likes to stay up until midnight partying and socializing or prefer to bring in the New Year more privately, the time-space effect is going to be the same: you will say goodbye to 2020(really, not a terrific year) and hello to 2021 in just a matter of hours and you will join billions on the planet in doing so.
The New Year’s celebration (New Year’s Eve/New Year’s Day)is best understood as a two day event, not a single day one, although a bit of partying can easily make them run together and seem like one never-ending holiday. I’ve had those moments myself, although not as much lately as in the past.
New Year’s Eve is the big celebratory party day, starting, depending upon your schedule, at about 4PM and continuing past (or well past) midnight. It is time for partying, eating, dancing, loud music, and new found enthusiasm for kissing people you do not know particularly well as well as kissing people you know extremely well.
“You must remember this, a kiss is a just a kiss, the fundamental things apply as time goes by”, was how Dooley Wilson summed it up in “Casablanca” and you’ll do well to take his advice. 

New Year’s Eve is the last day of the old year. Congratulations: You made it. You have the right to get silly and celebrate. (Safety note: just don’t drive if you drink; crash in place and tell everyone you didn’t want to miss anything when you wake up the next day).
New Year’s Day itself –the daylight portion—is of course, the first day of the New Year and is for recovery, family, football and begging for forgiveness if your enthusiasm for kissing people you do not know particularly well got out of hand, as it often does on such a night. If that turns out to be the case—well, best of luck to you. You may find out the hard way that the old saying that it’s “better to ask for forgiveness than to seek permission” does not apply to random groping and hot twerking in a tuxedo. Just hope that no one from the press or a particularly well-circulated internet site was snapping photos in hopes of making one reputation (theirs) while crushing another one (yours).
In addition to post-celebration recovery and football, and a full day of grazing at the New Year’s Day buffet table, New Year’s Day is also famous for New Year’s Resolutions. As a matter of fact, that (and begging for forgiveness) might be the very best option for New Year’s Day.
Although one can make a resolution at any time of the year, New Year’s Day is always the very best time to do so. Making them in June or July seems a bit pointless and lonesome.
You’re expected to re-start and re-set on New Year’s Day. This is the day of forgiveness for habits past(see above). Have at it. You’ll be in good company. Literally millions of resolutions will be made by sundown of New Year’s Day (and no doubt another million broken by dawn of the next day) but it’s a tradition and a form of personal positivism that should be encouraged. New Year’s resolutions speak to your best intentions, so indulge and encourage yourself. If you want to re-set some part of your life, career, health program, or diet New Year’s is the very best day to do it. The timing is in your favor.
Take society up on the open book for reconciliation and change it’s given you and understand the dynamics.
New Year’s Eve is the end; New Year’s Day is the beginning.
So do with yourself what you so often have done to your computer. Hit the re-set button. Enjoy shutting down the old days, the old ways, the memories past (both good and bad), flash  your personal RAM and relish the re-start, the new energy, the revised perspective, the bigger dreams. Simultaneously enjoy the freedom of letting go and the exhilaration of unbounded possibilities. Dream a little.
One day is for reflection; the other for projection. One set of stories and days and events are now complete; another set of adventures and trials and days and nights are to come.
More than any other holiday, New Year’s celebrates the possible, the unknown, the future, the passage of time and the new journey.
Once a year, mankind is all on the same page. And while the moment of synchronicity will disappear in just hours, we are all united by the hope (and promise) of a new year, a new start, a new beginning. New Year’s Day 2021 remains what all New Year’s Days have been through time: one more chance to really, really get it right.
It’s the New Year. Celebrate tonight. Recalibrate tomorrow.
Re-Set.

The Christmas Channel: How Hallmark Rules the Season

Paying Attention:
Embed from Getty Images

Continuing with our look back at how we’ve covered the Holiday Season, here’s a post that went live in December 2017–before everyone in the world was watching–and has proven to be absolutely dead on in terms of predicting how the Hallmark Channel has become one of the icons of an American Tradition. We were paying attention then and we pay even more attention today. Here’s the background behind America’s favorite Christmas Channel…

The most watched channel during the holiday season is not ESPN, Netflix, MSNBC or Disney. It’s The Hallmark Channel. Why? It’s the programming: Hallmark values, as expressed in the movies shown on the two (soon to be three) Hallmark Channels closely match the values that most Americans associate with the Holidays: love, sincerity, generosity, kindness, goodwill toward men, and finding/understanding the true meaning of Christmas. In an America which has just completed one of the darkest of sociological/cultural/electoral years, the programming of the Hallmark Channels brings us back to a world that’s kinder, nicer, easier to understand and live in, and which represents core American values that we don’t want to lose. A couple of hour’s worth of Hallmark Channel programming is all that’s required to re-center even the most frazzled of holiday shoppers and party goers. The production values are consistently good, the scripts solid if predictable, the acting professional and believable. More good news–not only does Hallmark get it, the company is making it easier to see its programming, by expanding the number of channels and technologies on which you can see its programming. For a closer look at why so many people like the Hallmark Channel, read this piece from the Christian Science Monitor…
Although lots of my friends and contemporaries (including a surprising number of TV producers and editors) have developed the Hallmark Channel habit this holiday season, The Nightshift and Media Bunker team were early in, highlighting the rise of this very American media outlet, with this post published over a year ago. 
If you’re not (yet) a Hallmark Channel fan, there is no better time to dig into the alternate vision of America that the Hallmark presents than right now, because seeing is believing.
Set the Holiday mood, check out the Christmas One More Time XV playlist at Spotify…just type http://sptfy.com/12dC into your browser and you’ve got music to get you through all your projects.

Why We Love Christmas Music

The Inside Track 
Why does Christmas and Holiday music always seem so magical?
The easy answer is….it’s traditional. It’s something we look forward to, something we expect, a tradition with which we are all totally familiar. And now, of course, there are more channels for Christmas music than ever before–from CDs, radio, satellite radio, streaming internet sites, TV music channels, even the music beds for commercials (Coke does a great job of breaking new Christmas songs via TV commercial).
If you want to hear some Christmas music, you have a lot of options, starting in early November and running through New Year’s.
Christmas music comes out of the box once a year and when it does, one resonates with the sounds of holiday seasons past, stirring warm memories, and it’s all good. And Christmas itself is tied to your past memories. During the Christmas season, the events of the past year pile up like leaves on a just raked fall lawn, just in time for holiday retrospection and New Year’s resolutions. And, of course, Christmas itself is something of a depository of your entire life history and that of your  family. It’s where great memories from the past are remembered and retold again and new memories for the future are created. And it all needs a sound track.
Music is very good at that—bringing back memories. Five bars into “My Girl” by the Temptations and suddenly you’re back in the fraternity house at a post-game party, squeezing someone tight with one hand and holding a drink in the other.
But the resonance of music with memories may not really be the impetus behind our affection for holiday music.
Perhaps the real reason is that Christmas/holiday music is a known commodity—my goodness, we’ve been listening to the stuff since we were old enough to recognize sounds—and each year we hear a huge group of new interpretations of Christmas music (every hot recording artist puts out a Christmas album, shamelessly promoted by artist and record company alike) which serves to both enlighten us about the potential of individual expression and to make old songs new. “New water over old rocks” a mountaineering friend of mine calls it and I think that sums up the situation pretty well.
The tradition builds on itself every year, as new favorites emerge, new interpretations shake up the Christmas music landscape, time passes and the meaning and affection for the season evolves and changes.  And, Christmas music cuts across a lot of demographic lines: young, old, rich, poor, white, black, urban, suburban, country. It’s a unifying soundtrack for a unifying season and even when you know the song, you may still be surprised at the rendition, interpretation, or production.
The re-casting of traditional songs combined with the influx of new soon-to-be favorites produces a warm and memory-filled soundscape for the season.
So turn it on, play it loud, enjoy the memories and build some new ones.
It’s Christmas music–one of our very best traditions.

Baby, It’s Sweater Weather Outside (Re-setting Christmas Classics for the Modern Era)

Editor’ Note: Originally published in December of 2018, when the PC police went one song too far and came after “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”….and republished this year because traditions are important and it’s also important to realize the false pretense and logic of trying to apply one generation’s cultural perceptions vs. an earlier generation’s ideals….we side with Mel Brooks on the PC movement: not a good idea and very bad for comedy.

Paying Attention:
Embed from Getty Images
A radio station in Cleveland,Ohio has completely lost both their nerve and the holiday spirit.
WDOK (FM 102.1) has pulled all versions of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” from their holiday playlist because of a complaint from a single listener–although the station said, in a namby-pamby press release–that the move was the result of a “decision by our listeners”. The station cited a poll as the basis for the decision but–in a namby-pamby move–didn’t give the results of the poll.
On Facebook, another source said the station’s site noted that “92% of the listeners favored the song” and only “8% were for removing it from the playlist. ” The station’s program director pulled it anyway, showing true namby-pamby spirit.
The usual suspects also chipped in with over-reaction to the song, saying “it’s not something I want to promote” in commenting on the lyrics of a song first published in the 1940s and played during every Christmas season since.  We have seen this problem before, when someone applies standards (not necessarily advanced) of one century to cultural icons and practices of the past.
It’s always a disaster. Different time periods. Different standards.
Wait until they start going after all those early suggestive paintings, like Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus” or Goya’s “The Nude Maja”. Oh boy…….
Here are the lyrics:

“I really can’t stay (Baby it’s cold outside)
I gotta go away (Baby it’s cold outside)
This evening has been (Been hoping that you’d dropped in)
So very nice (I’ll hold your hands they’re just like ice)
My mother will start to worry (Beautiful what’s your hurry?)
My father will be pacing the floor (Listen to the fireplace roar)
So really I’d better scurry (Beautiful please don’t hurry)
Well maybe just a half a drink more (I’ll put some records on while I pour)
The neighbors might think (Baby it’s bad out there)
Say what’s in this drink? (No cabs to be had out there)
I wish I knew how (Your eyes are like starlight now)
To break this spell (I’ll take your hat, your hair looks swell) (Why thank you)
I ought to say no, no, no sir (Mind if move in closer?)
At least I’m gonna say that I tried (What’s the sense of hurtin’ my pride?)
I really can’t stay (Baby don’t hold out)
Baby it’s cold outside
Ah, you’re very pushy you know?
I like to think of it as opportunistic
I simply must go (Baby it’s cold outside)
The answer is no (But baby it’s cold outside)
The welcome has been (How lucky that you dropped in)
So nice and warm (Look out the window at that storm)
My sister will be suspicious (Gosh your lips look delicious!)
My brother will be there at the door (Waves upon a tropical shore)
My maiden aunt’s mind is vicious (Gosh your lips are delicious!)
Well maybe just a cigarette more (Never such a blizzard before) (And I don’t even smoke)
I’ve got to get home (Baby you’ll freeze out there)
Say lend me a coat? (It’s up to your knees out there!)
You’ve really been grand, (I feel when I touch your hand)
But don’t you see? (How can you do this thing to me?)
There’s bound to be talk tomorrow (Think of my life long sorrow!)
At least there will be plenty implied (If you caught pneumonia and died!)
I really can’t stay (Get over that old out)
Baby it’s cold
Baby it’s cold outside
Okay fine, just another drink then
That took a lot of convincing!” 
–Songwriter, Frank Loesser, Lyrics (C) Kobalt Music Publishing Company

The people who thought “Baby It’s Cold Outside” is not proper ought to take a few minutes to listen to some rap lyrics if they’re looking for verbal targets. Good luck with that crusade……those are guys are going to tell the too-easily-offended to beat it–although in much more colorful language.
There will not be a poll.
The solution to this particular type of my-taste-is-better-than-your taste/ my-perception-sees-sexual connotations-where-there-are none situation is dead simple: if you don’t like the song or it’s lyrics, turn it off or change the channel and don’t listen.
Freedom of speech covers the right to play the song and also the right to not have to listen to it. Just because some see evil in every lyric or photo doesn’t mean that others do.
No one needs a press release or a quote from the self-appointed PC police. Just turn the song off on your radio and keep it to yourself.
As for the rest of us?
Baby it’s cold outside.
We’re turning it up.

Soundtrack for the News- America The Beautiful

RAY CHARLES SINGS AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL  

We’ve really been through it this year–the west on fire; the coast pounded and punished by hurricanes; a pandemic that has killed over 200,000 of our fellow country men; an economic downturn not seen since the great depression and a bruising, contentious, difficult, scathing presidential election. It will all soon be over, and maybe, just maybe, we can lay down the polarizing political issues which have divided us and get back to what made us great and the huge tasks we face. If we need a theme song, I nominate Ray Charles version of “America, the Beautiful”….just brilliant and it gets better every time you hear it. This particular version was performed in a concert Ray did in Washington DC on the 4th of July, 2000. And yes, the fireworks interfere a bit with the sound, but no, the song is not diminished in any way by the celebration. So tee it up, turn it up, and get your head and soul straight. This is the soundtrack we need for America.

The Nine Truths Of Moving

You Can’t Take It (all) With You

It’s that time .

Time to move. 

American is now more mobile than ever and if you haven’t moved recently, the chances are pretty good that you will soon. 

According to Moving.com, 1 out of 10 people in the U.S. will move in 2020, just like in 2019 and 2018. For those keeping score that’s  10.1% of the US Population, or 32,252,000 people out of our population of 319,310,000 citizens. No wonder you see lots of moving trucks on every interstate and back road in America.

We’re a mobile society and on the move.

After the dust of 2020 (what a year…) and the pandemic hangover are in the past, there’s reason to believe that even more people will be moving in the future. 

Why? 

The pandemic introduced corporations and employees to the joys of working at home and, given the choice between a really great house on a ranch, in the mountains or at the beach or a townhome jammed in close to downtown, most will opt for more space and instant access to the great outdoors. Cell phone service (check the signal strength for any place you’re considering) and fiber optic  internet(check that too) means you leave little behind if you decide to move further out. Companies are encouraging employees to work at home, some are even offering stipends, and mortgage rates have not been lower in ages. It’s a good time to make a move, for any reason: new job, new position with the same company in another part of the country, kids off to college, move closer to the grandkids, or entry into the witness protection program. There are as many different reasons to move as there are people but the one common factor is that moving is a time consuming and labor intensive process so maybe a few tips on how to get it all done will help. 

Context: I am a bit of an expert on the topic. I went to 14 different schools between the 1st and 12th grade, moved multiple times before I was even out of kindergarten. While in college, I never went back to the same house for Christmas that I left for school in September. Out of college, the personal trend continued. My mother, who organized all the moves, got very good at moving and she made sure that those survival skills were passed down to me. We lived a very streamlined life, but looking back on it now, don’t think we missed much.

Facing yet another move—and not just across town, but across states—I thought it might be a good time to revisit and pass on what was learned in all those moves.

Below: The Nine Truths of Moving that will help you survive the uprooting and replanting.

  1. Take a realistic inventory of what to move. Go through your place and see what you really want to take with you and what you might want to leave behind. Start by looking at your home and editing it: what is really necessary and important to your life and what is not. Start with the big stuff: furniture, case goods, armoires, rugs and carpets. Then look at the smaller essentials, like kitchen equipment, tools, outdoor gear. Edit out your electronics: old computers, equipment, sound systems (more on that below). Then media: books, CDs (everyone does streaming now), photos (always a good idea to edit photos as you create them). Then Artwork (almost always requires special handing because It’s easily damaged in transit). And, clothes…work clothes, hangout clothes,  workout clothes. Clothes move easier if they’re not on hangers, by the way. Fold and pack them and pack the hangers separately. A lot more streamlined and easier to deal with.  That collection of old barbells you seldom use….that’s hard to store and expensive to pack and move…give them to the future linebacker down the street. Be very, very critical because you will have to pack and load every single thing (and unpack and unload).  Cut it down to the essentials and the essential you. Not only will you lighten your moving load, you will no doubt find a more defined, unique, you in the process, when the excess is trimmed away. 
  1. Start Early. Moving is a huge chore. There are few, if any shortcuts. In brief you have to go through everything in your home (and office ) and see what goes (literally) and what gets left behind, in the form of donations or trash. You have to go through every cabinet, under every sink, into each closet to see what’s there and what has to be packed or otherwise disposed  of( see below). This is not hard but it is very time consuming.  The sooner you start the better. Also: gather up all your personal and important papers and valuables and keep them together, in one briefcase, special box, or backpack. You need to know where this stuff is at all times for personal and security reasons, so sort it out, pack it up, and secure it. You’ll thank yourself when it comes time to pack up and leave.   
  1. Don’t move it twice. A key mistake lots of people make is to pack up and move stuff with the idea of going through it once they get re-settled. Don’t do it. Why delay the inevitable: it’s expensive. A move is a chance to edit out the stuff that is no longer essential to your life. So…do the edit before you load the truck/van/SUV and don’t move something with the idea of sorting it out when you get there. What goes on the truck is what stays in your life. Everything else gets left behind, literally. Do not MOVE IT TWICE.  
  1. Keep, Donate or Sell/Toss. We’re not going to the existential argument of “does it bring you joy” promoted by Marie Kondo. That implies a lot of philosophy that you don’t have time for if you’re moving. 

You need an action plan and here it is:

Keep—If you love it, it’s necessary for your life, enjoyment of life, sentimental or a part of your life or work. Keep it. This should be about 40% of your stuff.

Donate or sell—An object that does not have value to you, but might have to someone else, can be donated to a good cause, given to a pal,  or sold to someone else who might cherish it. Into this category go all kinds of goods, from tools to clothes to Christmas decorations. Your obligation is to clean the object up, price it to sell  very quickly or match the no-longer-necessary stuff to someone who will really be glad to have it. This will turn out to be  20-30% of stuff. It applies also to clothes (as does the Toss category). 

Toss—The clutter, the seemed-like-a-good-idea at the time Halloween costumes, excess gadgets purchase from infomercials, plastic no-longer-functional anything, unwanted toys, books that do not deserve a place in a serious library (“Fifty Shades of Grey” or “The Art of the Deal”).Toss. Sometimes the local schools will have a book drive and need books to sell. Donate your books. A lot of them. There’s a hospital or retirement home that would love to have them. Make some calls and give.  Books are great and impressive for visitors  but they are heavy, heavy, heavy, so keep only your cherished first editions, coffee table showpieces, and the childhood favorites (“Rabbit Hill”, “The Long Winter”, “Lord Chesterfield’s Letters, Sentence, and Maxims”). 

Dump and toss ruthlessly.  If it’s Incomplete or I’ll-get-around-to-it stuff, toss it.  Remember: the less you have to move, the lower the cost to move. That should be enough of an incentive to really clean house. This should be between 40-30% of your previously prized possessions.

  1. Dump the mismatched sets of anything and obsolete electronics. If you have a set of mis-matched pots and pans, donate them. They’ve served their purpose and you’ve learned to cook. Reward yourself with a nice set of All-Clad from Williams Sonoma. You deserve it, they work great, and you can replace and/or add pieces as necessary. And someone else can use your old cookware and will be glad to get it. Keep the cast iron frying pan…it’s season and has a future. As for older electronics (that Tivo project?). Dump it or give away. It is not coming back. 
  1. Beware of computers (and office equipment): they get obsolete faster than ex-NFL football coaches. Don’t keep them around. The dirty little secret of the computer world is that even if the computer still has a working life, the software often doesn’t, and sites you need for business and personal activities (i.e. banks, brokerages, etc). often won’t take anything but the most recent browsers and operating systems. There are entire sites devoted to what to do with an old laptop (repurpose as a media center; use it to control the security system, etc.) but if you don’t want to deal with all that, just do this: back up the data to a standalone hard drive and then wipe the computer of all data, personal and otherwise, delete all specialized(and often expensive) software that shouldn’t fall into unauthorized hands; give it a good clean up and then donate it to some organization in your community  that is providing computers to kids who need them for internet remote learning classes. Streaming is one of the least digitally stressful actions that a computer can perform and what was a PITA for you will be a godsend for some young student. And you’ll feel very good about it. 
  1. Also—now’s a good time to rethink your media system. It is no longer necessary to have a large collection of CDs to hear the music you love—Spotify and iTunes and Pandora and Amazon music can fill that function. The most modern, and flexible setup today is not a stand alone hi-fi system, with big speakers and 200 watts/channel amplifiers, but something that’s almost as good and takes up a lot less space: a flat screen TV, a fiber optic internet feed, an AppleTV or Roku TV or Firestick, and a sound bar with two or more speakers and a sub-woofer. The sound is astonishingly good (for physiological reasons that we won’t go into here, but just remember that you typically lose a little hearing ability each year,) and takes up little space. By going full-in on modern digital music and video, you upgrade the experience and downgrade the amount of space required. 
  1. One size does not fit all: what vehicles to use for the move. If you have a household full of goods you’ll need a moving truck of some type. If you’re moving across town, you can make multiple trips with a panel truck or mid-size truck and a small moving crew and do it over a couple of days. If you’re moving across country, you’re going to need a moving van, one of the 40ft long variety. The moving pros should handle the big stuff: furniture, fridge (if you’re taking it), appropriately boxed (and cushioned) dinner ware, etc. You, the movee, should take some things yourself in your car, SUV, or, more appropriately van or small moving truck: all of your art, current computers, electronics, papers or anything that’s personally important and/or valuable. If you don’t have a big SUV (I’m partial to the Suburban for these type of missions), rent it. 

The philosophy for this is simple: keep the important(Personal papers), breakable, irreplaceable stuff with you and under your care; move the bigger, not-so-breakable stuff goes via moving company/van. Sometimes, this requires a couple of trips but…so be it. You spend a couple of extra personal days on the road but you’ve assured yourself that the stuff that is important..the stuff that really makes a new place your place…arrives intact and ready . 

  1. You don’t need it. One of the great benefits of moving is the chance to edit and re-set your life. It’s just like re-starting a computer: you get a fresh start on everything from where to go after the game for a beer to finding a new jogging trail. With all that you leave behind (literally and psychologically) you can now  live a life that’s more about the experiences and less about the stuff. You’ll be surprised at how little you need to live a really terrific life and how much smoother everything seems to run when there’s a lot less to keep track of, put away, organize. 

Moving is a major life event. It requires a lot of physical effort, thought, and emotion. When you pack up to move, you glide through the items and times and places and people of your past and make decisions about what continues on with you and what gets left behind.

It’s not easy, can actually be quite stressful in unforeseen ways, but it is, at its most basic, a growth experience. You get a new life. So grab yourself some good attitude, take another shot of courage (tequila works just fine), and hop to it. The sooner you get the move done, the sooner you move into your new life where new adventures, people, experiences and yes, stuff, awaits. And that is certainly a pretty great reward.

 Good luck and remember one thing: when in doubt, toss it out.

Transitions: Kenzo Takada (1939-2020)

Transitions: Kenzo Takada (1939-2020)

He had two names, Kenzo Takada, but like a lot of very iconic people who’ve had an impact on the world, he was known only by one: Kenzo. Kenzo was one of the world’s most creative and inventive fashion designers, born in Japan and realized in Paris, a city which he intended to visit only for a short time but was so entranced by it (and it by hime) that he ended up spending the last 56 years of his life there. In the process he became one of the world’s great clothing designers, whose sense of style, line, color and pattern were unduplicated, as was his sharp wit and huge sense of fun.

Kenzo got it. He believed that great fashion should be available to all, not just the very, very wealthy. He was a rarity in the fashion world, not just for his designs but for the quality of his ideas and the joy he put into his work and life. “Fashion is like eating”, he once said, “you shouldn’t have the same menu all the time”. And so he changed, evolved, revolutionized, stirred it up, progressed, experimented, delighted. 

Kenzo was prepping a fashion show for the next season when he was hospitalized in early fall.  He died of Covid-19 on 4 October 2020, the same virus that has taken so many of our very best and brightest far too early. Although at 81 he was in the “kill zone” for the virus (it disproportionately affects older people), he was very active, very sharp, but–because of age–very vulnerable. He will be missed, not just for his work but the new talent he brought to the scene including such contemporaries as Yohji Yamamoto and Rei Kawakubo.

The New York Times (our go-to for details of lives well lived) published a wonderful obituary on Kenzo,which you should read. To see his work, check out this wonderful link from Lina Naamani on Pinterest. 

To get the full Kezno treatment, click this link to the Fall-Winter 2020 Show. 

The very best way to celebrate someone’s life is to take an element of it that you really admire, and build on it, yourself—whether it’s not taking things too seriously or opening doors for young talented people or something else they did that you admired. In the world we live in now, we’re running a little short of really good stories. Best to start creating some ourselves, in the shadows of the reputations of those who’ve left us too early.

SOUNDTRACK FOR THE NEWS :

THE MAN IN THE TIN FOIL HAT

Time once again for some soundtrack for our current situation….no need to tell you, highly intelligent and perceptive reader/viewer that the good ole USA is in a pickle of a situation currently. Between the coronavirus pandemic, the economic slowdown/meltdown, the political advertising and constant media barrage of us vs. them opinions and policy situations, we’re just fatigued with all of it. So…no written editorials. Instead one song that gets right to the core: “The Man In The Tin Foil Hat”, this one by Donald Fagan and Todd Rudgren. Great music, even better lyrics. Perfect for our times (hopefully, the chaos will stop soon with the coming November elections).

Soundtrack for the News: How Long Has This Been Going On

Time for some soundtracks for our current situation. Why not start off with a classic, featuring Paul Carrack and Eric Clapton, performing “How Long Has This Been Going On”, in Switzerland. A perfect song for our less than perfect situations around the world. It asks all the right questions, rouses all the right feelings, and while it may not solve anything, it will make you feel a little bit better, a little more optimistic about what comes next.

Special thanks to YouTube for making the music available. “Sound Track For the News”  post  produced by Perception Engineering and The Media Bunker team, who spend a lot of time listening and listening and listening some more to the songs and performances.  Copyright 2020 donald pierce and SouthchesterGroup, LLC.

The Act You’ve Known For All These Years

The Hunt For New Music:

“It was twenty years ago today, when Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play”….
Sg. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (Lennon-McCartney)
Editor’s Note: Actually, it was more than 50 years ago that “Sgt. Pepper’s” was introduced in America. In celebration of that event, there are several posts and interesting links to checkout and enjoy about the most celebrated album of our time. 
There is an exact moment when The Beatles started the transition that would move them from their position as the world’s biggest rock band into the dominant cultural and musical influence that they became after “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” was released.
That moment was 29 August 1966, when The Beatles played their last live rock concert, in San Francisco’s Candlestick Park. The stadium was jammed and security for The Beatles was so tight that they had to be taken to the stage in an armored truck. One of The Beatles–looking out at the crowds and chaos that surrounded them–said simply “we can’t do this anymore”.
And after San Francisco, 1966, they didn’t.
As the band grew in popularity all over the world, the music was getting left behind. The screaming at the concerts was so loud that band members couldn’t hear each other, couldn’t hear their own instruments and, individually, they were getting restless–creatively, intellectually, musically. It was time for a change.
Ten months later that change materialized, in the form of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”. It was the first rock concept album, a total break with The Beatles tight and carefully Brian-Epstein- groomed image, a reach in terms of music and technology and instrumentation, a musical composition so complex it could not be performed live and stressed the limits of the then-available recording technology, a very complete break from the past. Those paying attention to the musical evolution of The Beatles knew that their music was changing, becoming more adventurous and complex. It started with “Rubber Soul” and gathered momentum on “Revolver”, an album that provided an early test of some of the concepts and musical ideas (“Eleanor Rigby”, “Tomorrow Never Knows”) that would reach full definition in “Sgt. Pepper”.
To produce “Sgt. Pepper”  took 400 hours of studio time and 129 days–an immense amount of time for that period in popular music, but nothing compared to the amount of time it can take a 21st century band to record an album today. Working for The Beatles was their drive to change, to create, to push the boundaries, along with a team that included their legendary producer George Martin (later and deservedly, Sir George Martin) and recording engineer Geoff Emerick. Working against them was the technology of the day: all analog, a modest four track Studer tape recorder, analog audio tape, the limits of electronic recording technology and techniques of the time.
It mattered not. Through diligence and drive and experimentation–and listening to what each other had to say–The Beatles pushed through, expanded the very limits of what was possible in the studio, turning the studio itself into a musical and creative instrument, not merely a recording device, and produced the album, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band”,  that Rolling Stone magazine has called the greatest rock album of all time.
At the core of the album’s concept was a step away from all The Beatles had been before and a step into what they would be going forward. Everything changed, from image and dress to composition complexity and musical density. The Beatles, in essence, created a band that could free them from the success and popularity of their past and give them again control over their musical destiny.
It was a risk. A massive, huge, intellectual, financial, business risk. If it went wrong, if their audience didn’t “get it”, if the album failed commercially, The Beatles could easily have been “over”.
But they did not play it safe, and that is the very greatest thing about “Sgt. Pepper’s”. They were fearless and opened a door into the future for themselves and for other bands by expanding the vocabulary of rock music. They elected to toss out the known for the unknown. Brian Epstein–their manager at the time” Sgt. Pepper’s ” was written, produced, and released–proved again to have perfect pitch for what to do and when to do it. Unlike other managers who  might discourage such an adventurous leap, Epstein–admittedly a little bewildered but totally committed to the group–backed the venture.
On June 2nd, 1967, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” was released in the United States. It was released in the “summer of love” and became the background music for a huge cultural change in the United States and the rest of the world. The album was loved, hated, revered, despised, analyzed, deconstructed, misunderstood, applauded.
But–it worked. “Sgt. Pepper’s” changed music and the possibility of rock; it also became the soundtrack the world needed at a time of volcanic change and international unrest.
There is a cost to change–there is always a cost to change. By August of 1967, Brian Epstein had died, the victim of “incautious self-overdosage” according to the English coroner. Friends of Epstein noted that he was worried if his management contract would be renewed, that he had been contemplating suicide for some time, that he knew his value as someone expert in staging large concerts and drawing huge crowds might be less valuable going forward when all the creative work would be done within the confines of the Abbey Road studio; that the band he had nurtured and grown into a worldwide phenomenon had, finally, and with his own urging, outgrown him.
By 1970,  after the release of  “Let It Be”,  it was over, as The Beatles, rich and famous and influential beyond comprehension,  lacking a centering influence (Epstein),  displayed signs of transitional difficulty from being merely the biggest rock band in the world to the dominant creative influence of an era, as infighting and self-absorbed musical and personal directions and personality conflicts mixed in with confused business activities and management, took it all apart.
What was left was the music, and in particular, this one rather spectacular piece of music, that changed everything.

The Coronavirus Guide: 19 May 2020

 

This is a special post from DonaldPierce.Com (“DPC”)  designed to serve as a workbook/guide/clearing house of current and valid information on CV (also known as Covid-19). We will add new material to the sources, articles, and links listed here on a regular basis. Our last post was on 18 May 2020. Articles listed in the order in which they were published. Please note that this site spotlighted the positive results of Remdesivir on Coronavirus patients a week before national media noticed the drug. It is now the lead drug in treatment testing. All the more reason to stay in touch with our research databank. We also added the very complete Coronavirus Dashboard from Axios, which has been running on The Nightshift international news sites (as well as Axios, of course).

One Song: Alessia Caro “October”

Alessia Cara performs one of her hit songs, “October” for Jimmy Fallon’s very innovative at-home version of The Tonight Show. A terrific artist and a surprisingly good rendition and recording. Very nice video, too (pay attention and you can see the rhythm section going in).

Special thanks to YouTube(and the Tonight Show) for making the music available. “One Song” post  produced by Perception Engineering and The Media Bunker team, who spent a lot of time listening and listening and listening some more to the song and performance. Alessia’s got it going on. Copyright 2020 donald pierce and SouthchesterGroup, LLC. Stay well, stay safe, and wash your hands. And practice safe distancing….it’s not so bad.

The Coronavirus Guide: 11 May 2020

 

This is a special post from DonaldPierce.Com (“DPC”)  designed to serve as a workbook/guide/clearing house of current and valid information on CV (also known as Covid-19). We will add new material to the sources, articles, and links listed here on a regular basis. Our last post was on 8 May 2020. Most recent articles are marked by an asterisk. Please note that this site spotlighted the positive results of Remdesivir on Coronavirus patients a week before national media noticed the drug. It is now the lead drug in treatment testing. All the more reason to stay in touch with our research databank. We also added the very complete Coronavirus Dashboard from Axios, which has been running on The Nightshift international news sites (as well as Axios, of course).

The Coronavirus Guide: 3 May 2020

 

This is a special post from DonaldPierce.Com (“DPC”)  designed to serve as a workbook/guide/clearing house of current and valid information on CV (also known as Covid-19). We will add new material to the sources, articles, and links listed here on a regular basis. Our last post was on 2 May 2020. Most recent articles are marked by an asterisk. Please note that this site spotlighted the positive results of Remdesivir on Coronavirus patients a week before national media noticed the drug. It is now the lead drug in treatment testing. All the more reason to stay in touch with our research databank. We also added the very complete Coronavirus Dashboard from Axios, which has been running on The Nightshift international news sites (as well as Axios, of course). Today, May 3rd, is WORLD PRESS FREEDOM DAY, which promotes journalism without fear or favor. We’re with them.

Downhill

In another era, decades ago, traditions and the clubs to support them flourished in the world’s great resorts and high adventure locations. One of these great clubs is the St. Moritz Tobogganing Club, founded in the late 1800s. The St.M.T.C. is the home of the world famous Cresta Run( if you’ve heard of the Cresta Run, you’ve been raised in a very appropriate household) , a 3/4 mile sledding run on which riders can top 80MPH. The riders go down the run on a skeleton sled, a sliding device that is brutally simple and bears little resemblence to the Flexible Flyer you had a kid; it has no steering mechanism and is steered by the shifting of the rider’s weight. A skeleton is a one person only device and skeleton riding as a sport is considered worthy enough to be a sport in the Winter Olympics. Traditions evolve to survive and to reflect changing times and the St.M.T.C. is no exception; although it once had a “no women” membership policy (denying access to the famed Cresta Run)times change and in 2018 the club decided to allow women into the club (in a bit of a test). Now, one fifth of the 1250 members of the club are female. In March, the New York Times ran a terrific article on the Cresta Run, the St.M.T.C. and the changing times in which we live.  The article is well worth your attention as it reminds us, again, of a past and cultural history that is special and well worth preserving. Perhaps, one day in the near future, “the new normal” will have settled in and we can enjoy again some of the traditions and events which make life so special. In quarantine, however, we will have be satisfied with looking back.

Transitions: Stirling Moss, Race Car Driver (1929-2020)

 

Stirling Moss died in bed.

Unthinkable.

The legendary British racing driver, who ran in over 500 races, racing all types of cars from F1 to sports cars, and was one of the most decorated and honored race car drivers of all time passed away in London on Sunday,  12 April 2020, after a long illness at the age of 90 

No one who knew Moss in his racing years—that would be from 5 to about 80 (he participated in his last racing meet at age 81 at Le Mans in a special event)—would believe such a thing could be true. He had just exposed himself too often, in too many different types of circuits, in too dangerous conditions (he was very, very good in rain and on ice), at too many different times of the day (late night endurance racing), to make it through to a very ripe old age. But, defying the odds (one of his specialties) he  did spend a lot of time in harm’s way, and he walked away from it in one piece. His destiny was not to go out in a ball of fire.

Moss himself endorsed the idea he was going to be one of racing’s casualties in a biography written by the brilliant Ken W. Purdy, called “All But My Life”. The book, which is a very great read and was based on Purdy’s extensive interviews with Moss, details a life of living at the edge of everything he liked, from beautiful girls to race cars to equestrian competitions. We’ll leave it to Purdy and other sources to detail that side of his life.  Moss, however, proved adept at escaping the fate that became so many of his contemporaries. 

A committed prodigy in a race car, Moss entered 529 races and won 212 of them. He was not a specialist, like today’s F1 or sports car drivers are, who only drive one type of car on one type of track in one type of competition. Moss drove everything, from the Monte Carlo Rallye to the 12 Hours of Sebring to the F1 Grand Prix of Germany. He ran F1, sports cars, rally cars, hill climbs, endurance racers. He is one of only three drivers to win a Coupe d’Or  for three consecutive penalty free runs in the Alpine Rally. He was second in the 1952 Monte Carlo Rallye, with driver Desmond Scannell and a magazine editor, John Cooper,  as co-drivers. He was the first non-American to win the 12 Hours of Sebring and won the 1000KM of Nurburging endurance race three times in sports cars. It was said that Moss would drive anything with four wheels and a place to sit and it was said that he had driven 107 different types of cars He drove cars from Aston Martin  (in Aston’s glory years), Vanwall, Ferrari, Maserati, Lotus, Cooper, Porsche; he drove for factory teams and private teams (his partnership with private team owner Rob Walker was particular effective). His attraction to racing was deep and passionate. 

Moss has been described as the greatest driver to “never win an F1 Championship”; from 1955 to 1961, he was runner up to the Championship 4 times and placed third three times. There are writers (Purdy among them) who believe that Moss’ failure to win an F1 Championship was because of his patriotic affinity for racing English cars at a time when the very best F1 cars were produced by Mercedes or Ferrari or Maserati. Enzo Ferrari believe that Moss would have won multiple F1 Championships if he had been “more reasonable and less passionate” and driven F1 cars produced by other manufacturers, not just English ones. Moss believed he could win in anything and actually he was right; He literally gave away the F1 Championship in one year through an act of sportsmanship, on behalf of fellow English driver Mike Hawthorne in 1958. If the near misses of the F1 Championship bothered Moss, he never mentioned it, saying that it was the respect of his fellow drivers that meant the most to him; he spent zero time of his life in the shade of not winning an F1 title.

Moss was exquisitely gifted as a race car driver, with a terrific sense of balance, great eyesight, superb reflexes and instincts honed from starting to drive at age 5. It was said that he was the fittest man to ever race in F1 and that, combined with his extreme versatility, helped to created his legend. Moss was the ultimate natural racer, extremely precise in “setting up” car for a race. Once, he was racing in an F1 off-season series held in Australia and had just set the lap record when, walking past another driver, the driver commented “good run, Stirling, but that new Lotus is a big help”. Realizing that the other driver was not having a good session, Stirling Moss then graciously asked the other driver if he might take a few laps around the course, just to check out the car.

The driver consented.

Moss did a few laps, broke the record he had just set, and then pulled back up to his fellow competitor. Getting out of the car, he casually noted that “nothing’s wrong with the car” and walked off. He was just that good.

Purdy noted that Moss also had exceptional eyesight, often picking out a particularly attractive girl from a crowd during a race and setting up a dinner date for later; he was a gifted equestrian and no doubt would have been a world class competitor had he continued in that sport. His sister, Pat, was also a terrific rider and eventually ended being a world-class rally driver as well (she married world rally champion Erik Carlsson). Moss’ ability to drive any car was unique and because he loved racing so much, he raced a lot. Check out this link to Moss’ driving record on WikiPedia to get an idea of the range of the man’s career.

Moss raced in the era, from the 1940s to the 1960s, also known as the “killer years”,  when the sport was at its most lethal. The line “when sex was safe and racing was dangerous” has been applied without irony to that period. Everything was hazardous then: the cars, the circuits, the helmets, the partying, the safety regulations; an incredible number of drivers died in racing accidents. Twenty-nine F1 drivers died in the sixties alone.  The rule of the sport then was “everyone has one big accident; if it doesn’t kill you, you’ll be fine” but no one wanted to test that rule, which proved to be uneven. Lots didn’t get a second chance. Lots of drivers had multiple crashes with the last one killing them(this holds true in stock car racing as well as F1 and sports cars). 

Moss was not impervious to the hazards of the sport. After all, there are three ways to have a wreck in a race car: you can make a mistake, the other driver(s) can make a mistake, or the car can break. It doesn’t have to be your fault, but you are just as dead if someone else causes the accident or if the car breaks. It can happen and mishaps play no favorites, everyone will get their share. He ran into dirt embankments, had brakes fail and wheels roll off, suffered flat tires. But he raced on, seemingly bulletproof.  Moss   had his first serious wreck in an F1 Grand Prix car  in 1960 and it made him miss three races on the F1 calendar that year, but he recovered and finished his year by winning the U.S. Grand Prix.

 It all came to an end two years later. In 1962, he suffered another racing crash, this one severe enough to put him into a coma for a month; he had eye and head injuries and Moss was partially paralyzed  on the left side of his body. A difficult recovery followed and later that same year, after recuperation from the accident,  he had a private test in a Lotus 19 on a closed track.  After his session, he checked his times, found he was off by a few tenths of a second vs. his previous best and announced his retirement from professional racing. In Moss’s mind, Stirling Moss not-at-his-best—even by a tenth of a second– was not Stirling Moss. It was time to go. He was 33. 

After racing, Stirling Moss was a major sports hero in Great Britain, a world wide sports celebrity,  and always a fixture on the automobile and racing scene. In many ways, the living legend was the patriarch of the sport; his appearance brought out the best aspects of racing: a legend with easy good manners, innate kindness, a sporting outlook on competition and impeccable etiquette. While racing, he was the highest paid driver in the sport, making a million dollars a year in an era when a million dollars was a very, very significant sum. He invested well,  lived a very active (and decorated life) and avoided conflict and scandal; He remained someone to look up to, not just for his racing achievements, but for the way he conducted his life out of racing.

Stirling Moss won so many memorable races, it’s hard to pick one out for special recognition, but the general consensus is that his win in the 1955 Mille Miglia (also known as Rome-Brescia-Rome), a race staged over a 1000 mile course of public roads in Italy. The race over very deadly open roads (ever driven in Italy?) was a timed event: fastest car from start to finish wins. Moss was driving the legendary Mercedes-Benz 300SLR and for a navigator he took motoring journalist Denis Jenkinson, who had mapped the route  and turned the map into a scroll which could be advanced as they drove on. The map was precise enough—and Moss had enough confidence in Jenkinson’s work—that Moss would enter uphill blind corners at over 170 MPH, the car would fly through the air at the crest of the hill, and  then land and move on. Moss and Jenkinson won the event, averaging 99MPH.

Second in the event was another legend, Moss’s friend, Juan Manual Fangio, also in a Mercedes 300SLR; he was Moss’s Mercedes team mate for the race and finished an astounding thirty-two minutes behind Stirling. Racing historian Doug Nye considered Mille Miglia win to be “the most iconic single-day’s drive in motor racing history”. For others, it just confirmed that Moss was simply the most gifted race driver of his era, or perhaps any era, because of his ability to win in so many different types of competition. Fangio, a gracious, fierce competitor, was five times F1 champion and a competitor of Moss’ on the F1 circuit. But in matched cars on that historic day,, he was half-an-hour behind Moss in the Mille Miglia. 

To escape alive from over 500 races is a bit of a miracle, but Moss did it and lived a very full life over the next 65 years.

So now, as the motor racing press writes the appreciations, the racing teams send their regrets, the great drivers acknowledge the passing of a contemporary, the newspapers fine tune their obituaries, you will have ample opportunity to read about the man who is debatably the best race car driver of all time, a true legend in a dangerous and deadly sport,  and who added one more unthinkable thing to his incredible list of achievements in this life.

Stirling Moss died in bed.

The Poetry of Rock: “Angel from Montgomery” by John Prine

 

 

For a couple of years, the idea has been kicked around the Media Bunker that we need to do a series of posts on the Poetry of Rock. We’re the type that really listens to music, all of it—the intros, the solos, the backing vocals, and the words, especially the words. 

There are plenty who love music, but really don’t do the deep dive into the lyrics, where so much of the soul and message of a song live.

We do, because so much of the magic of music is in the lyrics. Everyone knows a song that could be great, but the lyrics hold it back…..for a song to be complete, to be totally great, it’s got to have both a great tune and outstanding musicianship and great lyrics. The bar is high.

Most of us were introduced to poetry in school at some level but eventually moved away/on from it as we got older. When was the last time you actually bought a book of poetry, by anyone?

But poetry’s still here, a bigger part of our lives than you would image if you just recognize that it now comes wrapped in music as the lyrics of the songs we hear all around us. Like all art, beauty is in the eye (or the ear) of the beholder. Some lyrics are great, some are nonsense, and some are unforgettable and legendary. Here in the media bunker, we lean in to the unforgettable and legendary, and so it’s time to resurrect the “Poetry of Rock” series (and we are including all forms of music in the Rock category, just to keep it simple) and so will be bringing out some examples of the great lyrics that accompanies great music (and vice versa) to show our appreciation for the genius level art that can surround us, if we just look a bit, do a drill down. 

This post was brought to the top of the editorial calendar by one event: the death of singer/songwriter John Prine. Prine was a humble man with an uncommon gift—he was one of the very best songwriters of his generation, good enough that he was someone Bob Dylan listened to. That’s good.  You can read about Prine’s life in this obituary from The New York Times. It’s well worth your time, as is this editorial from the Times that focuses (with performances)  on a key selection of John Prine’s best songs

One of Prine’s very best songs–and he had a bunch of them–was the song “Angel from Montgomery”. The lyrics are below:

I am an old woman named after my mother
My old man is another child that’s grown old
If dreams were lightning, thunder were desire
This old house would have burnt down a long time ago
Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
Just give me one thing that I can hold on to
To believe in this living is just a hard way to go
When I was a young girl well, I had me a cowboy
He weren’t much to look at, just free rambling man
But that was a long time and no matter how I try
The years just flow by like a broken down dam
Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
Just give me one thing that I can hold on to
To believe in this living is just a hard way to go
There’s flies in the kitchen I can hear

–John Prine

The song is mournful, painful, biographical, real, raw. The lyrics are short, the poetry is brief, but what’s not included in word is implied by its absence. It is, in short, a bit of a miracle. To fully grasp the genius of Prine is to hear his music performed, and one of the very best versions of this song is the one by Bonnie Raitt. But to add to the depth, we managed to find a live performance, by Bonnie with Prine, that you will find quite marvelous.

John Prine gave us a lifetime of great music. No better time than now to stop and appreciate it.
