Sonntag 22 March 20. Turner classic movies. 0600--0800. A Tale
of Two Cities (1935; black and white!) My parent/cuzzins were
infants then. wikpedia: 'set in London and Paris, 1775-1792".
my Quebecois and Huguenot ancestors had already left France two
Louis's before, so no French Revolution BUT my great-great-great-immigrant
grandfather Thomas Highland; his father Peter born in 1780s, near
Ashford Kent. movie opens 1775, road from London to Dover which
kinda passes by there. So all "agricultural labourer"
extras in movie COULD be my Highland/Hyland ancestors! rest of movie
was just plain fantastic and 1859 publishing means: Thomas and Elizabeth
Highland sailed London to New York arriving "no occupation",
but 1850, farming in South Lyon, Michigan and the two Highland boys
that survived and had descendants, they born in 1850s. Only their
father, ole Tom Highland "signed his 1839 marriage certificate
with an X; his wife taught him how to read and write'....maybe she
read Dickens to him after a hard day farming AND, with cow pies
a-bundling; dealin' with bullshit every day! (cf. Mothers of Invention
"trouble every day"!)".....

Montag 23 march 20. Miss Lyn walked past La Internacional Foods
Corporation (grocery store 318 somerville ave across from sally
o' brien and OPEN!! support them!) and saw FREE latin music so since
record stores are "unnecessary", Kenne Highlando can review
some excellente musicia! Sonora
had a cd of Con Sabor Sensacional. They're basically
a marimba band from gautemala and the cd has bright fruit-flavour
colours; I spent a "Sunny Afternoon" b/w "In My Room"
eating takeout from Macchu chicken (Peru!) listening to this 2018
cd; almost reggae-type horns but what is da fuggin' huevos (Schmel
herbie Culo! JETSET!) is: "Mary La Orgullosa" which is
John Cameron Fogarty's "Proud mary' sung in espanol....This
is the huevos rancheros and I still have MORE Latin music to grok!
(Stranger in a strange land/sci-fi reference....there's Willie Loco
and Mui Loco!!!!)".....

sealed cassettes!: $8.00. then $7.00. Por moi: gratis! Merenbooty
Girls. Merenbooty Mix. fabuloso! Discogs>

that fuses disco and merengue into a dance mix'. Cue up "you
cant sit down"! (The Dovells, i think, Blowfish WOULD know!)
four singles and e.p.s 1996-1997 (same as Goody Goody Gumdrops!)
and one 1997 album on Epic. The 1996 cassette I own (the mui linda
Linda gave me a birthday present that is the fa kin' huevos!) says:

disco". medley Uno: "I will survive" (Yo Vivire"),
"total eclipse of the heart' (eclipse total Del Amor), "ring
my bell' (danced to this at the enlisted club in Charleston SC,
me-n-the bruthas gettin' done! "Dr. Funk' (self-samed by me
to marines of colour coz I LOVED George Clinton!!) "I dont
know WHAT the fuck you were doin' on the dance floor out there!";
two years later, 25 walbridge street, allston,mass. dancin' BETTER
than James Brown to my HOT PANTS 8-track!) and "celebration"
(celebremos). medley dos: (RADIO EDIT): ymca/MCArthur Park/Funkytoen/
Last dance....yes this WAS 1979 L/Cpl KE Highland guarding your
country!. Medley Dos: (dont ask why it counted twice): turn the
beat around/funkytown/YMCA/macarthur park. There's five of 'em like
the Spice Girls and they're all dressed alike like
madonna's s and m period. I found one singer on Twitter: "former
singer....lover of Jesus Christ'.....sounds like a madonna/'ho complex.....this
was THE best way to spend Sunday in lockdown in my haunted room!".....

day of Wodin 25 march 20. Aybike Celik Ozbey (Marina
Poison) sarkici- srki yazan at reptilians from andromeda
turnt me onto 60s singer Debbie Burton. wikipedia
proves I HAVE heard her! 1962 she sang a duet with Bette davis on
"whatever happened to baby jane" which
is on youtube. Aybike (living as a punk in Istanbul one MUST
have a cat tattooed on arm!) put up Debbie's 1964's "The
Next Day" from youtube showing that wonderful orange/yellow
Beatles Capital label ("Help"/"Yesterday" era
label); I played it and it's Leslie Gore on steroids! on a 2004
comp Girls Go Zonk: US Beat Chicks and Harmony Honeys, lotsa
good gurl groups on it. (and it's wicked rare!! $975.00 on Amazon!)
Song co-written by Perry Botkin Jr. (he did string arrangements
on my Harpers Bizarre albums, I had four back in the '60s, pre-
Funhouse) AND: NILSSON SCHMILLSON! Followed by a 1966 Capital 45
"Baby it's over" written by Schmilsson and produced by
Botkin. There's a sax solo that sounds like John Keegan
on a Leslie Gore 45 on stereoids! Since I know TWO words of Turkish
evet! das ist gut turta musik! (mixed with German, that's "yes!
that is good pie music" meaning a tasty musical dessert! Check
Burton for certain!".....
(adendum). "Aybike Celik Ozbey, Istanbul Groupie News and
"stray cat blues", re: Debbie Burton "The Next
Day". "I found it today. i really love the song and
sounds like the shrangi-Las ("the girls got rhythm"
and good taste!-me). and the story is every girl's story. am i
right?" teen drama going for the "sensitive' guy....ya
gotta hear it! (me) TWO Gizmos fans TWO continents cant be all
wrong can they?".....
