  • Ted Cruz Will Lose, if He Tries To Divide Rock Music and Country Music Fans

    04/06/2015 9:25:43 AM PDT · by pinochet · 99 replies
    Ted Cruz would make a great President. Cruz is a patriot and an expert on the US constitution. He has made freedom-loving Americans happy with his attacks on ObamaCare, and his call to abolish the IRS. But he is obviously not an expert on everything, and does not seem to know much about music and the demographics associated with music. Cruz recently said: "...I grew up listening to classic rock, and I’ll tell you sort of an odd story: My music taste changed on 9/11. And it’s very strange. I actually intellectually find this very curious. But on 9/11, I...

    Each time the word ROCK is used in the Bible in reference to any providing of the people, it is used as God being the one provided. Here is the first verse in the Bible in the KJV showing just that. (Exo 17:6 KJV) Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel. Who pointed out where the ROCK was? God did. What came out of...

The black comedian told New York magazine’s Frank Rich that racial progress in America is “nonsense” and that the only thing that’s changed is white people aren’t as crazy as they used to be. “When we talk about race relations in America or racial progress, it’s all nonsense,” Mr. Rock said. “There are no race relations.

Even Seacrest took a turn crooning, proving as a singer he’s a great host. He was joined on Richard Marx’s “Right Here Waiting” by the singer-songwriter.

He took it to experts and they realized he had captured a meteorite falling during its “dark flight” — when it has been slowed by atmospheric braking, and has cooled and is no longer luminous. Norwegian astrophysicist Pål Brekke confirmed to Universe Today that the story is true. “I...

    An IDF force lying in ambush shot dead an Arab terrorist who was preparing to throw rocks at Israeli cars traveling on Road 60, north of Jerusalem. The incident took place near Givat Asaf, in the Binyamin region, on Monday evening. The ambush was placed following an uptick in the number of similar attacks as of late. It is too early to say whether it signals a change in IDF policy toward rock throwers, but the military action appears to be a departure from the policy of the last few years, which has been marked by extreme hesitance to use...

The Beau Brummels may very well have been the best rock vocal quartet to find themselves in the right place at the wrong time. Their recording career spanned the years 1964 through 1968, a time when radio air play meant just about everything and groups that couldn't be conveniently classified as rock/folk/country/whatever had a time getting played. Unfortunately, the country-flavored rock style of the Brummels was too smooth and too vocally sound for them to be portrayed as...

The rock panel, now in two pieces, was found on the west wall of a shallow sandstone wadi, or valley, in the Kharga Oasis, located in Egypt's western desert about 108 miles (175 kilometers) west of Luxor. Facing east, and illuminated by the morning sun, the panel is a "very unusual" find, said Egyptologist Salima Ikram, a professor at the American University in Cairo who co-directs the North Kharga Oasis Survey Project.

Taylor, seen destroying a 200 million-year-old goblin sandstone formation in Utah's Goblin Valley State Park last week, filed a personal injury lawsuit last month claiming to have been disabled after a car crash four years ago.

    Faces -sometimes known as The Faces- were an English rock band formed in by residual members of the legendary Small Faces when Steve Marriott left that group to form Humble Pie with Peter Frampton et. al. in 1969..  The name derived from English 'mod' slang of the era, where 'happening' or socially-known people within the mod scene were known as 'faces'- along with the fact that all five band members were somewhat vertically-challenged. After the highly-successful Small Faces broke-up, the remaining band members - Ronnie Lane (bass guitar), Ian McLagan (keyboards) and Kenney Jones (drums) - were joined by two (taller) blokes,...

    Billy J. Kramer (born William Howard Ashton 1943) in Liverpool, England came to fame as yet another Merseybeat act that went on to join the 'British Invasion' of the US market in the early 1960s. Like the Beatles, he was managed by Brian Epstein, and in fact Kramer went on to record a number of Lennon/McCartney compositions over time. I myself am a big fan of the band, as I've become interested in Merseybeat bands in general over the last few years. But somehow this particular song catches my imagination, even though I only first heard it a couple years...

    'Reg Presley, lead singer of 60s rock band The Troggs, has died aged 71. The band's frontman died at his home in Hampshire, his daughter, Karen, confirmed to the BBC. The Troggs had a number of hit songs, including Wild Thing and Love Is All Around. Music publicist Keith Altham paid tribute to Presley on Facebook, saying his "dear old pal" had died "following a succession of recent strokes and a losing battle with cancer". Presley announced his retirement from music a year ago after being taken ill during a concert in Germany and then being diagnosed with lung cancer.'

    Perhaps the hottest rock act to ever come out of Boise, Idaho was (and is) the group Paul Revere & the Raiders, who saw considerable commercial success in the 1960s and early 70s with hits such as 'Kicks' and 'Hungry' (1966), 'Him Or Me- What's It Gonna Be?' ('67) and then in 1971 their only #1 single, 'Indian Reservation' ('Cherokee people, Cherokee pride...' -you know, that one). The band was together as early as 1958 as The Downbeats, and enjoyed an early Northwest-only regional hit with 'Like, Long Hair' in 1961. Influenced by British Invasion bands such as The Beatles,...

  • Men's Imagination Became Evil Continually...Genesis 6 pt 4

    And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.(Genesis 6:5-6) We have been looking at the universal conditions that led directly to the flood , in the “days of Noah”, because Jesus told us that this same state of affairs will be duplicated in some way at the time of the Parousia, and the final judgment of this world. “As in the...
