Abraham ben Samuel Abulafia   (1240 - 1291) An originator of visionary Kabbalah.

He wrote a handbook, Prophecy for Dummies.

The secret is to immerse yourself in the concreticity of the Hebrew alphabet -- letters, numerals, and vowel points in all manner of combinations and permutations.

What's never explained is how this torture of the Babylonian alphabet gets the adept closer to Yahweh.

Theodor Adorno Theodor Ludwig Wiesengrund (1903-1969) [father] "critical theory" critic who
  • criticized the "Culture Industry."
  • hated jazz
  • believed that the USA, his refuse, was fascist,

(2) Daniel Estulin: Walter Lipmann wrote their songs and was "charged with ensuring that the Americans liked the Beatles." [ "Autumn of the Driveler" ]

"... I knew I was helping Hercules divert the mainstream, which would soon eddy in pop's psychedelic era." -- "Let's 'Ave a Larf," The Blacklisted Journalist (1995).

Two "Failures To Communicate"

Beastie Boys began as punk in 1979, became hip-hop in 1984, and still perform in 2011:
They intended their song, "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party!)", to parody the idea that teenagers should drink themselves silly, and yet the dumb audiences took that as the message. Now they have disowned the song and never perform it.

CONCLUSION: "Satire is what closes on Saturday night." (George S. Kaufman)
Biohazard, another punk and hip-hop fusion, was founded in 1988, by
The "Jew/Nazi dyad" is essential to punk, and the theatrical performance signals the irony. But when Liberals griped about "fascist and white supremacist views" in their music, the boys back-pedaled ignominiously.
  1. They "strenuously denied" the accusations of "racism."
  2. Then It was a publicity stunt to win over fans of Carnivore.
  3. They promised never to do it again and began preaching tolerance.

"God Bless America" (1918) [ mental floss, Minstrelsy ]
Its first six notes are taken from the opening of "When Mose with His Nose Leads the Band" (1906)

the words come from "God Bless America" (Robert Montgomery, 1834)

[IB had a] "habit of interpolating bits of half-remembered songs into his own numbers."

Woody Guthrie hated the song, "This Land Is Your Land" was first "God Blessed America For Me".

It is anti-climactic - ending on the cliche, "Home Sweet Home." Let's get Nikki Sixx to do a rewrite.

Don Kirshner was [a mastermind of the] “Brill Building” genre which dominated the American charts in the period between Elvis Presley being enlisted in the US Army in 1958 and the onset of the British invasion, spearheaded by the Beatles, in 1964.
     ...He described his writers as “normal Jewish kids," many of them barely out of their teens, whose songs both shaped and reflected the conservative dreams of most American teenagers, with their time-honoured themes of
  • infatuation and heartbreak,
  • summer romances,
  • first kisses,
  • and living happily ever after.

QUERY: What would possess a man named "Fiszel Czyz" to change his name?

If ever a name was poetry, that was it.

Oh well, lets get on to the prosody of the record business, circa 1955:
some record companies assigned co-composer credits to disc jockeys and others who helped "break" a record, a form of "payola" via composer royalties.

So disk jockey Alan Freed got co-writer credit for "Maybellene," as did Russ Fratto, a money lender to Chess.

[Anna] .never forgot the main family business -- the exploitation of millionaires. Dorothy Burlingame, a millionairess on the run from a failed marriage, brought her bratty kids with her to live in Anna's London house.

Anna helped the kids strengthen their little egoes. All went well until years later when the little Burlingame boy, now grown, returned to London and killed himself in Anna's house.

The treatment of Matty Burlingham was "the template for a giant social experiment to control the inner mental life of" Americans.

Allen Ginsberg   (1926-1997) Legendary Beat poet

A Jew is an ethnic Jew who has rejected Christ. An ethnic Jew who has accepted Christ is not a Jew. Ethnicity is the necessary but not sufficient condition for being a Jew. The sufficient condition is rejection of Christ.

Jacob Neusner [said,] “While not all Jews practice Judaism [it is] the iron-clad consensus among contemporary Jews, Jews who practice Christianity cease to be part of the ethnic Jewish community, while those who practice Buddhism remain within.” -- EMJ.

Philip Glass   (1937) composer
Jewish composers are underrepresented when it comes to rock and roll, although we do have Paul Simon, among others. Bob Dylan's music is sometimes called "folk rock," but it has little in common with traditional rock and roll.

Minimalist music is the classical analog of rock and roll. It shares with rock and roll a strict regularity of rhythm and, as its name suggests, the repetition and exploration of a small - minimal - number of melodies.

Philip Glass and Steve Reich are two [such minimalist composers].

The Jewish creative energy that did not go into rock and roll found its home in minimalism. -- Jochnowitz.

The Worldly Philosophers (1953).
Heinrich Heine   (1797-1856) German poet later set to music by Franz Schubert. How do we know he was a great poet?
Heine's later verse and prose is distinguished by its satirical wit and irony.
On a wall of the room where the Romanovs were killed is:
"Belsatzar ward in selbiger Nacht Von
seinen Kuechter umgebracht"
Some wit's spelling includes the word "tzar" in the reference to "Belsazar" killed by his slaves. Like Falstaff, Heinrich is "the cause that wit is in other men "

One astonishing aspect of the Beatles was that they wrote their own songs, and the publishing rights to these songs were a commercial property that manager Brian Epstein could sell.

George Martin recommended a publisher called Dick James . Brian met him and James won the manager over by promising The Beatles an appearance on a TV show called ‘Thank Your Lucky Stars’. Their appearance there [exposed] the band to a wider audience.

In return for arranging the appearance, Epstein gave James 50 percent of The Beatles publishing rights. It was inconceivable at the time that this transaction would make James a multi millionaire, but of course it did. -- suite101.

Despite stiff competition (itself a potential Kiss song title), Stanley takes the honors over his bandmates [for worst lyricist]. ***

Worst lyric: “Baby, let’s put the X in sex/Love’s like a muscle, and you make me wanna flex” (“Let’s Put the X in Sex”)

Bonus Worser lyric: “She’s a dancer, a romancer/I’m a Capricorn, and she’s a Cancer” (“C’Mon and Love Me”)
Let's take a bonus moment to look at Blender.

Everyone mocks Kiss's crude lyrics, but there's a special place in Hell for Carole King's "Believe in Humanity." No one excoriates the killer combo of namby-pamby and goody-goody, and until they do, the category of excoriation is illegitimate.

Let's hear from the man himself.

One episode portrayed the Chasids as violent, hot headed and foolish savages and directly attacks the Talmud, giving the viewer the idea that Talmudic Judaism has no standards or ethics and that anything one likes to choose at any time is just fine with Jews. This is a truly vicious anti-Jewish canard produced by, you guessed it, Jews. -- Gerhard Falk.

Cesare Lombroso (1835-1909)
  In a precursor of Max Nordau's Degenerate Art, Lombroso said that ciminality was an inherited character trait.

We can identify the born criminal by physical stigmata or "atavisms."

He was like Mortimer Randolph in Trading Places (1983).

Freud loved him. Karl Kraus called him a "charlatan."

Lombroso presaged Alfred Kinsey by studying convicts alone without a control group and publishing his results in two volumes:
L'Uomo delinquente (1876) Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948)
La donna delinquente (1893) Sexual Behavior in the Human Female (1953)

Isaac Luria Isaac (ben Solomon) Luria Ashkenazi (1534-1572) The biggest thing to hit Judaism since instant mashed manna.-- he put Kabbalah at its center.

A man of few words, his legion of disciples had logorrhea.

In his creation story,: God, who is Everything (the Ein Sof), had to withdraw (the tzimtzum) part of himself from a little vacuole (the khalal) inside himself, in order to create something Other.

Into that other, he sent a ray of light [the kav) which created everything in the known universe, but tragically -- because the vessels (the kelim) that magically sprung up to contain the light, broke (the shevirat ha-kelim), raising cain.

So we live in a broken world and still need a Messiah.

Punk - Because a Good War Should Never End

punk band (1974-1996)

ranked the #2 band after the Beatles by Spin Magazine.

Two founders were Jews The third founder, a Shaygets, was:.
"bassist Dee Dee Ramone, son of a U.S. soldier stationed in Germany, developed a fascination with Nazi regalia." Then Tommy was 'very disturbed' by the Nazi overtones in Dee Dee’s lyrics and said he was 'sure it must have hurt us tremendously.'"
This is creepy. It is unbelievable.

Two Jews just accepting Nazi lyrics?
"Well, what can you do?"

Given the packaging of punk by the oligarchs, such as Serge Grainsbourg and Malcolm McLaren, we suspect that the emphasis on the Nazi is part of the show.
Then we read, in the literature, that the "Jew-Nazi Dyad" is a standard trope in punk
So much for the authenticity of the Ramones.

Jerry Ragovoy   (1935-) lyricist

Ragovoy wrote "Time Is on my Side" (1963) as Norman Meade.

At the time or recording, the lyrics consisted only of the words "Time is on my side" and "You'll come runnin' back."

Jimmy Norman (1937-) a black man, completed additional lyrics "just in time."
When the Rolling Stones recorded it [also in 1964] ..., Mr. Norman received partial credit on the label, but in later releases of the song that credit disappeared. (He received a letter from the song's publishers 10 years ago saying the initial credit was due to clerical error and was not binding.) - NYT (2004)
So, by creative accounting, the black man is out of luck again.

  Joe Shuster (1914-1992) comic book artist
Jerry Siegel (1914-1996) comic book writer

In 1938, they sold Superman to DC comics and saw nothing of his enormous grosses until they shamed Warners out of a $20,000 a year payment until they died, their heirs to revert to nothing. The heirs began lawsuits in 1999 and these are still in the courts ten years later.

But novelist Philip Wylie got ripped off even more. Even the jumps-only-doesn't-fly and throws-a-car-when-angry traits of the original Superman come from Wylie's Gladiator (1930).-- Cracked.

Joe had a secet identity of his own, as an underground cartoonist of S&M scenes.

Bugsy Siegel Benjamin Siegelbaum (1906-1947)

In the movie, Bugsy (1991), Virginia Hill abandons Bugsy in the desert. He spends hours alone, staring at the vast sandscape, then gets his bright idea for a casino outside the Las Vegas city limits.

But, in fact, William R. Wilkerson founded the Flamingo Hotel. Bugsy just took it over.

Warren Beatty took the desert scene from Lawrence of Arabia (1962).

And why did he take over the Flamingo? So he could rip if off. He evidently didn't think it would be worth a hill of beans. Some visionary.

You can't believe anything in the movies!

So it's okay for Hollywood to lie when it steals from itself?.
