I've been only 15 years old when I saw this movie for the first time and when Queen Aretha Franklin came into my life... It should turn out that this might actually have been one of the most important movies of my life. What did I know back then? But It's really never been the same again! Aretha and her voice has never left me ever since and so she will be with me for the rest of my days.


Aretha Franklin - Think (feat. The Blues Brothers) - 1080p Full HD
by Juanjo de Goya on YouTube

Her congenious partner in this clip, Matt "Guitar" Murpy, passed away just two month ago on June 15th. James Brown, Ray Charles, John Lee Hooker, John Belushi and Carrie Fisher. They're all going to live forever in the music that changed and made the lives of the people and the world as a whole a so much better place.

#FarewellAretha, may you #RIP

The Blues Brothers is also one of my favourite films. Just had the pleasure of passing it on to a new generation. Great to see how it still holds up and is still able to appeal to a younger generation. The music is a great part of that, I think. RIP and thanks for the great times.

"CLOSE YOUR EYES (AND COUNT TO FUCK)" | Run The Jewels and Zack De La Rocha
by AG ROJAS on Vimeo
Lyrics:
[Zack De La Rocha:]
Run them jewels fast, run them, run them jewels fast
Run them, run them, r-run them, run them, f*ck the slow mo

[Killer Mike (El-P):]
Fashion slave, you protestin' to get in a fckin' look book
Everything I scribble's like The Anarchist Cookbook
(Look good, posing in a centerfold of Crook Book)
Black on black on black with a ski mask, that is my crook look
How you like my stylin', bruh? Ain't nobody stylin', bruh
'Bout to turn this mothaf
cka up like Riker's Island, bruh
Where my thuggers and my cripples and my bloodles and my brothers?
When you niggas gon' unite and kill the police, mothafckas?
Or take over a jail, give those COs hell
The burnin' of the sulfur, God damn I love the smell
Like it's a pillow torchin', where the f
ck the warden?
And when you find him, we don't kill him, we just waterboard him
We killin' 'em for freedom cause they tortured us for boredom
And even if some good ones die, f*ck it, the Lord'll sort 'em

[El-P (Killer Mike):]
We out of order, your honor, you're out of order
This whole court is unimportant, you fckers are walkin' corpses
I'm a flip wig synonym, livin' within distortion
I'll bite into a cyanide molar before you whores win
I'm a New Yorkian, I f
ck for the jump
I wear my Yankee so tilted I actually walk with a hunch
Look at Mikey, I think he likey, we are sinister sons
(Aye, we the type to beat the preacher with a grin and a gun)

[Hook - Zack De La Rocha:]
Run them jewels fast, run them, run them jewels fast
Run them, run them, r-run them, r-run them, run them, r-run them
Run them jewels fast, run them, run them jewels fast
Run them, run them, r-run them, r-run them, run them, r-run them

[El-P (Killer Mike):]
A wise man once said, ("We all dead, fck it")
Just spit it disgusting youngin', and hold your nuts while you're gunnin'
I listened, tatted a sentence on my dick last summer
Now I'll never get that phrase off my brain, it's no wonder
I'm here to buy hearts, I got hundreds, honey
The cheaper the parts, the better buy for the money
I'm trained in vagina whisperin', glistenin'
Waitin' for their christenin', I know the neighbors can't help but listen in
A dirty boy who come down on a side of dissonance
I can't even relax without sirens off in the distances
Not shittin' you, little buddy, this f
ckin' island's a prison
The only silence I have is an act of conjugal visitin'

[Killer Mike (El-P):]
My solitary condition's preventin' conjugal visits
Go mane and missin' my misses, they keepin' me from my children
Conditions create a villain, the villain is givin' vision
The vision becomes a vow to seek vengeance on all the vicious
Liars and politicians, profiteers of the prisons
The forehead engravers, enslavers of men and women
Includin' members of clergy that rule on you through religion
(So strippin' kids to the nude and then tell 'em God'll forgive 'em)

[Hook]

[Zack De La Rocha:]
It's De La on the cut, liftin' 6 on your stitchy crew
I'm miles ahead of you, you can sip my bitches brew
My battle status is burnin' mansions from Dallas to Malibu
Check my résumé, your residence is residue
Call her a skin job and my honey dip'll backflip for you
You playin', God your eye sockets, she gon' rip in two
We sick of bleedin' out a trace, spray a victim, you
Done dyin', Phillip AK Dickin' you
With clips in the bottom, we dippin' from Gotham
Yes eclipsed by the shadows, a dark dance to the coffin
I'm a fellow with melanin, suspect of a felony
Ripped like Rakim Allah, feds is checkin' my melody
Yes aggressively tested we'll bump stretchers and penalties
Dump cases with face and the cop pleas when we seizing a pump
With reason to dump on you global grand dragons
Still pilin' fast, plus Afghani toe taggin'
Now they trackin' me and we bustin' back, see
The only thing that close quicker than our caskets be the factories

[Hook]

The director A.G. Rojas about the music video:
When Run The Jewels sent me this track, I knew we had the opportunity to create a film that means something. I felt a sense of responsibility to do just that. We had to exploit the lyrics and aggression and emotion of the track, and translate that into a film that would ignite a valuable and productive conversation about racially motivated violence in this country. It's provocative, and we all knew this, so we were tasked with making something that expressed the intensity of senseless violence without eclipsing our humanity. For me, it was important to write a story that didn’t paint a simplistic portrait of the characters of the Cop and Kid. They're not stereotypes. They're people - complex, real people and, as such, the power had to shift between them at certain points throughout the story. The film begins and it feels like they have been fighting for days, they’re exhausted, not a single punch is thrown, their violence is communicated through clumsy, raw emotion. They've already fought their way past their judgments and learned hatred toward one another. Our goal was to highlight the futility of the violence, not celebrate it.

Killer Mike about the music video:
this video represents the futile and exhausting existence of a purgatory-like law enforcement system. There is no neat solution at the end because there is no neat solution in the real world. However, there is an opportunity to dialogue and change the way communities are policed in this country. Salutes to AG Rojas for his unique take on the subject matter and to Shea and Keith for giving us their all and bringing it to life.

El-P in a mail to the Huffington Post about the music video:
this is a vision of a seemingly never-ending struggle whose participants are pitted against each other by forces originating outside of themselves.

Bebe, danza, sueña,
Siente que el viento
Ha sido hecho para ti
Vive, escucha y habla
Usando para ello
el corazón

Siente que la lluvia
Besa tu cara
Cuando haces el amor,
Grita con el alma,
Grita tan alto
Que de tu vida, tú seas,
Amigo, el único actor.

This is to introduce myself to the !Music Forum, but this is also about my passion about Willie Nile. He's one of the friendliest people I know. He's certainly the most energized 70 years old punk-rocker of all out there in the jungle. He's a survivor, he's a fighter, he's a friend. This is his newest release 'Earth Blues' off ‘Children of Paradise’. Video directed By: Ehud Lazin

Pero así,

Beautiful song about the human condition in difficult times in our lives whatever you believe (I am an atheist myself). :-)


No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one's laughing at God
When they're starving or freezing
Or so very poor
No one laughs at God when the doctor calls
After some routine tests
No one's laughing at God
When it's gotten real late
Their kid's not back from that party yet
No one laughs at God when their airplane
Starts to uncontrollably shake
No one's laughing at God
When they see the one they love
Hand in hand with someone else
And they hope that they're mistaken
No one laughs at God
When the cops knock on their door
And they say "We got some bad news, sir"
No one's laughing at God
When there's a famine, fire, or a flood...
But God could be funny
At a cocktail party while listening to
A good god-themed joke
Or when the crazies say he hates us
And they get so red in
The head you'd think they're about to choke
God could be funny
When told he'll give you money
If you just pray the right way
And when presented like a genie
Who does magic like Houdini
Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket
And Santa Claus
God could be so hilarious
Ha-ha, ha-ha
No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one's laughing at god
When they've lost all they got
And they don't know what for
No one laughs at God on the day they realize
That the last sight they'll ever see Is a pair of hateful eyes
No one's laughing at God
When they're saying their goodbyes
But God could be funny
At a cocktail party while listening to
A good god-themed joke
Or when the crazies say he hates us
And they get so red in
The head you'd think they're about to choke
God could be funny
When told he'll give you money
If you just pray the right way
And when presented like a genie
Who does magic like Houdini
Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket
And Santa Claus
God could be so hilarious
No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one's laughing at God in a hospital
No one's laughing at God in a war
No one's laughing at God
When they're starving or freezing
Or so very poor
No one's laughing at God
No one's laughing at God
No one's laughing at God
We're all laughing with God

“Cuando un músico Negro* coge su instrumento y empieza a soplar, improvisa, crea; sale de su interior. Es su alma. El jazz es el único espacio de Estados Unidos en el que el hombre Negro puede crear libremente”.

Así es como Malcolm X describió el espíritu del jazz en un mitin político organizado en Nueva York en 1964. Entre el público se encontraba el músico de jazz John Coltrane.
