Sonntag 31 May 20. "Then came the last days of may"-
Blue Oyster Cult. 0500, cup of coffee, Bounce TV: "Superfly
TNT"!!! "blaxplotation/drama". screenplay: Alex
Haley! (pre-Roots!). release date: 15 June 73 (I first jammed
with O. Rex 3 june 73). I heard some GREAT music playing and it's
the 24 Sept 73 (I was crankin' We're an american band album, gold
vinyl c/o WIUS Bloomington,Indiana!) soundtrack album by Osibisa!
("genre: British Afro-pop"). Mostly GHANA musicians
with French cameroons, Guyana and Trinidad. The congas sounded
like Santana's "Jingo" on steroids and I liked the lead
guitar also. Wake up the right tyme Bouce WILL be playing '70s
blackspoltation films as the sun comes up! Carpe diem!"....

"Monntag 1 June 20. IF it were 1967 I'd maybe have purchased
Sgt Pepper on day of, BUT "meanwhile back in the States"
Jim McCarty, my Facebook friend and Mitch Ryder's guitarist WAS
doing that great guitar solo in "Sock it to me baby".
NOT as exciting, I googled BBC mystery on youtube and got THE
MONITORS (1969). NOT British AT ALL, this 'sci-fi/drama"
released 8 Oct 69; maybe I was lissenin' to 45s of "Honky Tonk
Woman" or "Come Together" or "Green River"....this
movie "shot in Chicago!" https://markdavidwelsh.wordpress.com....quotes
the PSYCH-OUT corny flower pop dialogue; aliens have invaded and
want to turn everyone into flower children! They're stuck in a prison
resembling THE PRISONER (#6) but on acid AND steroids! I also read
a couple of the "babe" actresses HAD been in Star Trek....IF
the Orson Welles Thee-ate-er still had SCHLOCK AROUND the CLOCK (PSYCHOUT:
1982!) this WOULD be on there....how I DO miss the non-social distant
film festivals where I'd wake up in a movie seat at zero-dark-30
and go "wat da fug wuz DAT?!?!?"...CONSIDER this movie
one of those and quit watchin' the news, THO this movie came out
when Steppenwolf's MONSTER lp came out and no truer words were spoken
by an Aries german Canadian! (oh that that's MY sign and DNA.....)"......

Til Tuesday 2 June 20. I belong to a doo-wop facebook group; lots
of HOPELESSLY OBSCURE doo-wop 45s (like lou reed collected). One
improbable one: The Prodigals from Clarksburg west
virginny. it's 28 miles south of where dad's grandaddy McBee was
borned in basnettsville (population 408!) and the once i road the
ole Mountain Lion Transit from Fairmont to Clarksburg, passed a
young calf feedin' off his ma; springttyme in Appalachia! Stonewall
jackson o' the Civil war borned there as was his cuzzin Mudwall
jackson, whom some of my distant Youst cuzzins served under onc't
they "gone to Dixie". Labour Day there's even an italian
ethnic festival! (seeing the Italian flag and also an orthodox church
in marion county WV DID seem sureal but SOMEBODY had to work in
the mines!). To wit: the Prodigals. "marsha'
b/w "Judy" was their february 1958 single (I's livin'
in Quantico,virginny then). it's
on youtube, Falcon records. Just remembered i DO have harrison
county WV DNA matches but the washington irving high school news
has plethora of memories on the Prodigals! wihs59.
tripod.com >news0803. lastly https://books.google.com>books.
Doowop: the Chicago scene. ROBERT PRUTTER,
1996. "The prodigals were not what they seemed. Listening to
their vee jay records, one pictured a vocal group from the streets
of the big city, and an african american one to boot....Most readers
would be surprised to learn that the group, which was racially mixed"
(ala Del Vikings) "played instruments and thus was a self-contained
ensemble". DO read this chapter AND the "Happy days' memories
of washington Irving high school!"

D-Day and if you DONT know what date that is, listen to "reincarnation";
"on the sixth day of 1966 in June"! why, stoned on Big
Daddy (Killslug) weed did i sing that? Answer: cassette on la plaza
from La Internacional Food, Somerville mass. "Serie Escatogica
#2. Dr Dario salas. LOS 4 CABALLOS DEL APOCALIPSIS y el 666!"
(sending photo). "El dr. dario Salas es un maestro en la exposicion
de la Biblia, de nacionalidad Chilena con residencia en Brazil".
With Dad's Iberian penninsula DNA (AS i get darker every minute
I'm "into the Sun"); this is four horsemen of apocalypse.
Did some research and looks like he is from Chile, live in Brasil
BUT : "club televideo cristiano Po Box 39 Ontario Ca'....In
