Since I'm more in a mood to listen to music than write at this website, I thought I would post a couple more "music that time forgot." I noticed of late a certain amount of 80's retro interest on the music lists and elsewhere -- and which I think can be a good thing -- that is, at least, if one treads cautiously. Well, here are three right by me (certainly) selections from that time "They Don't Know About Us" with Tracey Ullman; "Strut" by Sheena Easton; and "Love My Way" by the Psychedelic Furs (from a very recent concert in San Francisco actually.) You may perhaps notice also that as different from each is from the other they still all have their own little life message or wisdom to impart -- as well as being simply flat out great numbers.



Later Note. Respecting the last video here (with the Psychedelic Furs doing "Love My Way" live), see also as an alternative link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l39whXMMUUw&feature=related

Dig it! -- Excerpts from the Young Rascals live at the Hollywood Bowl, Aug. 16, 1968; playing 1. "Do You Feel It?" - 2. "A Girl Like You" - 3. "A Place In the Sun."
It doesn't get more groovy than this, however, I do seriously recommend turning the YouTube volume down about half way in order to clear out the distortion.

In one sense, nature must be incredibly childlike and naive; for who or what else could think that horns, antlers, tusks, fangs, or claws (even such as a lion's) would be sufficient to fight off evil?

If Christianity offends you then pluck out what ever it is in it that causes you to be offended -- that is, as long as you do so morally, rationally, and in good conscience; for there is nothing in honest Christianity that should offend either proper morals or logic.

At the very least religion is and should be something one can both be good at and a help to others with, and without any false guise or ulterior pretense. Because to be false is to defeat the essential purpose of true religion; assuming the person actually knows to value and appreciate it in the first place (which obviously they may well not.)

When a person listens to a spirit person, chances are they do not listen to their heart and mind (in the spiritual or most refined sense of heart and mind) but are instead manipulated by feelings and images doctored according to what spirit people want to use them for and get out of them. So that it is being without a healthy heart or mind that can (though I do not say must) cause a person to be, so to speak, damned.

In one sense, the occult is simply a form of warfare; and the occult being present in people's lives a manifestation of a war that is taking place. In fact, we can even and legitimately go so far to say that criminal spirit people and the occult are the very essence and at the core of all excessive and unnatural strife; and high ranking civil and military leaders can no longer be permitted the childish luxury of talking about fighting or winning a war without in some way taking such spirit people, on some level, into consideration.
