Dizzy Gillespie 93 !

Ken Burns JAZZ Collection: Dizzy GillespieThe father of BeBop, Dizzy Gillespie, would have been 93 years old  today! The fact that I am 33 years old is an automatic handicap to my knowledge of this Jazz great! I do know that as a young boy I would often take my elementary school issued plastic recorder (flute-like thingy) and attempt to make my jaws look like ole' Dizzy's. The result: a double ear ache, two dried up tear ducts, and a head buzz much like that of a nitrous oxide WAH-WAH! ---Whippet! I ain't talkin' bout  Devo either! Seriously, the guy was amazing judging from my limited knowledge of jazz music. As I get older, I find that my ear welcomes the sound of jazz way more than it used to. I spent my teenage angst years blasting out my eardrums to Henry Rollins and various booty Bass music. On any given day you would find me bumpin' around the armpit of Ohio in my 83' Cadillac Coupe Deville, fully loaded with the 12'' JL Audio speakers. I've got the tattoo to prove it (unfortunately true)! If only I would have listened to good old Dizzy Gillespie back then. I would not be in the market for a Whisper 2000 now! Rest in peace Dizzy.

Dizzy is a legend.

No disrespect to the Diz but he's not exactly one of today's hot topics. What are your thoughts on the GQ cover with the Glee stars? Or Marisol Garcia fighting against drugs in Mexico when she is only 20? Let's hear some more of your humorous prose on more timely topics. That will increase your readership and spur some discussion.

Flowergirl, some people like Dizzy. But I do see your point that the Glee cover is all over everything today. I think the Glee photo shoot went over a line.

I wrote the Dizzy article at 2:30am, so it was the only thing burnin' in
Google trends oven. I'll hit you up in a little bit.

wow you didn't even mention the Glee photo shoot and you're getting shit about it, lol! Who cares. Everyone in the photos is over 21 and there's no nudity so it's a freaking non topic. Diz however is a fantastic topic! Why must bloggers always post on non events like a GQ photo shoot? The answer is that they shouldn't! Great work JSL keep it coming!

My Poems

My wallpaper art Babes!

Sexuality introduces Death to Being; and indeed Life simultaneously. This is the profound Myth of the Eden. The work of the Serpent. Bringing us out of "blessed" Standstill. So, in contrast to the mindless pietism of vulgar Christianity, my personal "Christo-Satanism" should be given serious thought by the Enlightened Few, the Pneumatics, the 1% Outlaws. The Light Bringer must be rehabilitated, beacause if not, the All of it simply doesn't make sense: true Catholicism is necessarily Meta Catholicism.

Un orage nocturne illmuna maintenant l'Amazonie, franchis les Andes, envoya des jeux de cartes gigantesques et frappantes en bas à la Pampa –

My prosepoetry in French:


Et je traduise la poésie française en suédois:


Schwarzes Birne!
Aufforderung zur Erotik.

My poetry in German:

Fremde Gedichte

Casualidad sopla la sangre
de alguno señor desconocido
durante los pocos restantes
momentos del resplandor de faroles

que se vislumbran tras el follaje
flameando de las obsesiónes
igual efimero como gotas
del cinzano de la soledad –

En aquel tiempo me levanta
dentro uno incidente avejentado
que en seguida palidece
al camouflaje de abstraccion;

chica, nadie conoce que tus grisos
ojos significan aún; con todo
el sueño que hube evacuado
tu escudriñas nuevamente.

Mi poesía aproximadamente española

The best way to do it is lining up as a Follower, since then your icon will advertise you indefinitely, and I will follow you in return. Let's forge a mighty alliance of synergy and common interest.
