My title, of course, is one of the great Lemmy Kilmister’s most well-known lines, as well as the name of an album by Lemmy’s band. So I’m sure you can easily guess what I’m going to be embedding for this evening’s Tune Damage segment.
Mass shootings just one sign of the systemic collapse of western society… more hunger, violence, debt and destruction yet to come
We are watching the downfall of western civilization as we know it.
The rule of law is dead. Elections are rigged. Free speech is disallowed and a criminally corrupt government now runs an actual Ministry of Truth “disinformation” board. “Science” is a total fraud and the medical system is a murder system. Most of the youth refuse to work, and real-world skills are practically non-existent among those under the age of 30. The education system is run by pedophiles and groomers, Hollywood has gone all-in with satanic programming of children and the US military, under the leadership of woketard Pentagon officials, has become a pathetic shadow of its former self.
On top of all that, the dollar is collapsing in real world value, even as it rises against other currencies (temporarily). The Fed is trapped in an inescapable economic collapse scenario, and the housing bubble is in the process of bursting. Our “president” is a dementia patient who was installed in a rigged election, and our news media — if you can even call them that — are journo-terrorists who parrot CIA lies and corporate disinformation to invoke race wars and covid panic while pushing depopulation vaccines that are designed to exterminate humanity.
None of this is going to get resolved through sanity and reason. It’s all headed for collapse. And when I say “collapse,” I mean the total collapse of western civilization as we know it. This includes the collapse of Western Europe, which is also run by retarded lunatics who are wholly incapable of functioning in any sort of rational way whatsoever.
The West has lost the ability to reason. Logic no longer applies to anything, not science, medicine, journalism, elections, etc.
Oh, I assure you it still DOES apply, and always will. It’s just that most “Americans” have fully bought into the Left’s cherished delusion that logic, like reality itself, can be suspended completely at their capricious whim, then reinstated soon afterwards with no real harm done.
“Journalism” is now just parroting the lies of the corporations and deep state agenda-setters. “Elections” now simply means Democrats running vote-stuffing mules to achieve whatever number of faked votes is necessary to “win.” “Science” means rigging studies, censoring data and destroying the careers of scientific whistleblowers who dare to speak out and warn the world. “Medicine” is a process whereby hospitals and doctors gain financial wealth by murdering patients for profit. “Wall Street” is a Ponzi scheme propped up by seemingly endless money printing. The “gains” are ephemeral. Pension funds and retirement funds are ghosts, and they will collapse toward zero as the house of cards collapses.
Western countries like the USA manufacture almost nothing. We have virtually no domestic supply chain for steel, rare earth minerals, electronics or industrial chemicals and polymers. We are a nation that has abandoned industry and embraced “financialization,” which is the scam of creating make believe wealth by pretending to move numbers around on computer screens, creating derivatives and CDOs and “synthetic CDOs” and other incomprehensible financial instruments that ultimately produce nothing in the real world.
Meanwhile, as China is stockpiling grain in anticipation of a global food shortage — and India has just banned all exports of wheat in order to feed its own people — America continues to export corn, wheat, soy, millet and other agricultural products to China, helping make sure that China won’t starve even while America’s population faces mass famine this year (and next).
There is no longer anything resembling sanity or reason in America. The nation has lost its mind, and the oblivious masses are getting angry enough to start shooting each other with greater frequency. This should come as no surprise.
Believe me, it doesn’t. But odd as it may seem, it ain’t a bad thing, nevessarily. In fact, it’s abundantly clear by now that “shooting each other with greater frequency” is our only way out of this mess. To be specific: sane, sensible, normal Americans are gonna have to start shooting Leftards in job lots if they want their situation to improve. As the saying goes, you don’t have to like it, you just have to do it.
Update! Dang it, forgot the embed.
Why yes, of COURSE I have a great story about meeting and hanging out with Lemmy once. Ill have to tell ya all about it sometime.
Updated update! A 2009 live version so racy it has to go below the fold.
GOD, I love that damned band.
“The Mule” was played by Deep Purple during their 1971, 1972 and 1973 tours, and was recorded live for the Made in Japan album in August 1972. During this live performance, and most others, Paice played a 6-minute drum solo. On the recording heard on Made in Japan, Gillan starts the song by saying:
“Alright…everything up here…please. And a bit more monitor if ya got it.”
[guitar noise] “Ah?” [echoing kettle drum] Ritchie Blackmore can faintly be heard saying, “You want everything louder than everything else?” then Gillan saying,
“Yeah, can I have everything louder than everything else…alright…ha ha”
And ends it with:
“Ian Paice on drums! YES!”
As a huge D-Purp/Blackmore fan for my whole life, I am ashamed to say I’ve never heard that story, which is a great one. Many thanks for hipping me to it, brother.
I always liked Deep Purple way back when. Of course with my musical dysfunction I could not have told you who they were or even name a song.
So when I got on my latest music kick/preference for Celtic sounding music I discovered Blackmore’s Night which is Ritchie’s band. Damn good stuff, it’s my favorite.
Second the rec for Blackmore’s Night. Very good stuff.
Being a diehard rocker, I keep it strictly Deepest Purple. Never cared for Rainbow, because Ronnie Dio, which is reason enough (UGH!). Blackmore’s Night, as I understand the deal, is an acoustic/trad-folkie combo which Ritchie put together with his wife, Candice Night. Not of much if any interest to me; I’ve never heard any of their music and doubt I ever will, even though for years and years I’ve rhapsodized to anyone I could get to hold still for a minute that Blackmore is like a God to me. It’s perfectly true, too. But even veritable Deity status still isn’t strong enough stuff to wash away that acoustic/folkie taint for me, I suppose. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy to hear you guys dig ’em, and that the Blackmores appear to have enjoyed some success with the project; I have no desire to insult or offend anyone on this, I promise. But, well…meh.
Oh, and while we’re at it, I found the “Everything louder” intro to The Mule listed as a separate track on the triple-album (!) release of Made In Japan, which I don’t have; I only ever had the original two-platter vinyl version, which is still regarded as one of the greatest live rock & roll albums ever recorded, a truly seminal masterpiece that shaped the nascent hard rock-heavy metal sound into something genuinely new. That incredible album has been in my regular rotation since I first got it back in 1973, and I still love it. Blackmore’s brilliant solo on Highway Star is so perfectly ferocious it could make a charging lion back off and slink cautiously away in defeat.
No problem, Mike. Blackmore’s Night is definitely a very different kind of music than Blackmore’s work with Deep Purple. People like what they like, and it does not have to make any kind of sense. Amazing talent, whatever sort of music he is playing.
I don’t consider it folk music. It is in the genre of Celtic which is how I discovered them.*
The only thing I listen to is Pandora. I “discovered” pandora on the internet in 2005 or 2006 when it was no adds and free. I now pay the basic subscription fee. I bought a new radio for the truck just to be able to get it from my phone.
You should give it a try. Night’s voice is worth the entry fee.
*yea right, like I know what anything is called.
OK, so there is this internet thingy that allows one to look up stuff. And according to sources, they are of several genre’s including folk rock. Also, Celtic Rock which is what I think I mainly get on the Pandora channel I created years ago.
I’ve never been very fond of what I consider folk music, but maybe it’s because I don’t know what the hell it really is.
