Bohemian Rhapsody

Way before the movie came out, I had noticed that Bohemian Rhapsody was one of the most-covered songs I came across online.

Why?

I THINK it’s the same reason we landed men on the moon. Not because it is easy… but because it is hard!

So – We will start with the original, and them move into ‘more interesting’ territory. I don’t expect you to get through them ALL… the mandatory videos are listed in RED LETTERS!

The ORIGINAL!

The famous LIVE-AID PERFORMANCE

Of COURSE I have to include WAYNE’S WORLD!

My FAVORITE! What if SYSTEM OF A DOWN did it?

SAME GUY that did the SOAD cover.. but this time.. in 42 STYLES!

FLOPPOTRON!

PENTATONIX (Think “GLEE”)

WHAT? Zakk Wylde, Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen & Nuno Bettencourt? YEP!

DRUGS! PILLS! HEROIN! CAPTAIN CODY!

I originally posted this on the @HollywoodWalk Instagram accountbut now I see they are blocking/hiding/limiting ANY posts that use the hashtag #heroin so I am posting it here.

Basically it is just a rant. I saw a sign in Rite Aid that said you can get Naloxone without a prescription and thought it was interesting. I started typing out a small caption… and that turned into a rant that went until Instagram would no longer accept any more characters in the post! So- Here it is…

*********************************************************************************

I have NO idea what I am talking about here, but actually – this [making Naloxone easy to get] seems like a step in the right direction. Maybe, just MAYBE someone won’t have to bury their brother or son or mother or best friend. 

It’s easy to say “I have no sympathy! They did this to themselves!” ..and it is easy to think of drug addicts as a bunch of dirty hoodlums who don’t contribute to society…. UNTIL it is your 12 year old daughter or 80 year old aunt or your father or best friend.

If you think YOU are ‘above’ narcotic addiction, you are absolutely right… until you aren’t.

People make stupid mistakes all the time. Unfortunately, opiates are the mistake that keeps on taking. It will take away everything and then: it will take away MORE. And just when you are done burning every relationship you ever had, losing your job, stealing your own child’s lunch money, slamming your fingers in a car door so you MIGHT get a prescription and taking medication from the bathroom cabinet of someone dying of cancer…. THEN: you get sick!

IMAGINE the worst parts of every sickness you have ever had. The worst flu… diarrhea.. vomiting… sweating and freezing… fluids coming from every orifice… But wait! There’s more! You’ll also get soul-crushing mental anguish and excruciating despair that will not stop. And all of this all has you BEGGING for the third and final act: When the opiates finally put you out of your misery …and they find you 3 days later on your bathroom floor in a puddle of your own feces. [Not to mention ALL the other people you cause to suffer.] Needless to say- It’s a terrible thing… but there IS help.

Tell your best friend what is happening

RIGHT NOW: Make an appointment with a DOCTOR. They WILL help you. In fact- You can just CLICK HERE to get a phone number of someone to help! Tell them it is URGENT.. because IT IS. 

If you are addicted to opiates, YOU CAN STOP THE SUFFERING. You don’t have to go to the hospital or even use vacation time! You can continue to go to work AND hang out with friends and family! AND– Only your BEST FRIEND needs to know what is happening!

Find help BEFORE you find out what “rock bottom” looks like. You will THINK you are at ‘rock bottom’… and then you go WAY deeper. It’s not all ‘cool’ like in the movies…. …but hey! What do I know?

If you have FAMILY or a FRIEND with an opiate addiction, BE COMPASSIONATE. You may not be able to understand the GRAVITY of the THOUGHT of giving up opiates to an addict. It is NOT about being ‘high’. It is ALL about NOT BEING SICK.

If you just want to provide some general help/make a donation I would suggest giving to Music Cares. They have helped many of my friends AND probably all of your favorite bands.

If I were God

"CHURCH" by Will Pendarvis

If I were God…

…the Universe would be 2-dimensional and drawn in crayon. That is because I am a big dummy and can’t even BEGIN to fathom things like infinity, free-will vs omniscience, string theory.. or even simple division if I have to be honest.

But perhaps, if a great scientist could explain to me the Big Bang as if I were a two-year old.. then I could get it!

Nope. Astrophysicists talk in a language that I can barely wrap my head around. And when I DO wrap my head around it, it makes me physically dizzy.

I was just reading this article from CNET: March 2018 [Stephen Hawking explains what happened before Big Bang ]

Here are some of my favorite quotes from the article:

  • “Ordinary real time is replaced by imaginary time”
  • “Imaginary time behaves like a fourth direction of space”
  • “Imaginary time is a four-dimensional curved surface like the surface of the Earth, but with two more dimensions.”
  • “We should steer clear of aliens entirely”

It all sounds like lyrics from a Pink Floyd song or something. In fact:

Here is Roger Waters with a few final words on the subject. Regardless of your politics or theology or understanding of the nature of the astronomical objects… I’m sure you are capable of appreciating an AMAZING PERFORMANCE!

 

Star Trek “Set for Stun” is Finally Here!

Did is EARF

We’ve got our flying cars, robots, digital assistants, on-screen telephones, Artificial Intelligence, homes run by computers… but where is our Star Trek “Set for Stun” guns?

Well- the STUN LAZERS are RIGHT HERE!

Check out this from Popular Mechanics:

The Secret History of Plasma Weapons

…and since the movie is ALWAYS better than the book (or perhaps you are too lazy to THINK or READ) you can watch “the US Navy’s laser weapon in action”!

How long does a Formula 1 Race car need for a pit stop?

I grew up around racing and cars my whole life, but there are aspects of it that amaze me all the time.

To be honest, I’m more of a NASCAR guy… but you can’t help but be impressed by the Formula 1 pit crew.

So- How long does it take for a pit stop INCLUDING 4 new tires?

YouTube won’t let me embed the video, so SPOILER ALERT:

Sometimes… it takes 1.97 seconds.

CLICK HERE to SEE FOR YOURSELF!

Then again… SOMETIMES it takes 1.92 seconds!

…and FINALLY- If you STILL haven’t had enough pit stop action… Check out how they all compare!

TODAY IN HISTORY: THE EXPLODING WHALE

November 12, 1970

The crew of Apollo 13 were resting comfortably at home after a successful splashdown in the Pacific Ocean …The Beatles had decided to call it quits… future Baseball Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Gibson had just won his second NL Cy Young Award…. and 6 cents would buy a United States postage Stamp.

THEN – It happened.

THE EXPLODING WHALE.

IF you are not familiar with THE exploding whale…  I would suggest that you NOT watch this while eating your lunch. You might choke to death from laughing.

(and you might vomit a little)

HOW TO TELL IF YOUR CHILD HAS BEEN ‘IN THE CEILING’

  • When you say the word ceiling they avert their eyes.
  • Hair or clothing covered in plaster.
  • Unexplained noises from the attic.
  • New friends who are all covered in plaster.
  • Broken ankles.
  • Visiting ceiling-oriented websites and message boards.

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR CHILD HAS BEEN “IN THE CEILING”

  • Confront them immediately by saying “Have you been in the ceiling?”
  • Tell them they are no longer allowed in the ceiling.
  • Explain to them the dangers of falling out of the ceiling.
  • In case they relapse, buy THICK carpet and stack empty cardboard boxes throughout your home.

WHERE did TRUTH go?

Ahhh... Remember the good old days? 

The weather was determined by nature…. Man landed on the moon… and the Earth was ROUND!

Early Greek philosophers alluded to a spherical Earth.. and of course Magellan and/or Enrique were sailing completely around the thing back in the 1500’s… but – In 2018 we find ourselves DEBATING the shape of the Earth!

Can you IMAGINE going back in time and telling your 4th grade self “In the future, lots of people will think the Earth is flat!”

What is the opposite of the Age Of Enlightenment?

Are we now in the AGE OF DECEPTION?

Why are INSANE conspiracy theories being taken seriously now?

One huge contributing factor is pointed out by TV host Chris Hayes in THIS INTERESTING TWITTER POST that talks about how one of the most popular destinations on the internet uses an algorithm that leads people down the path to stupidity. 

Scientifically- You are prone to believe horsecrap if you are a person who is susceptible to what is called teleological thinking …where you think that every RESULT is the cause of the actions leading to that result. (To simplify it: “everything happens for a reason”.) 

But I 100% believe that ALL of us have the ability to discern truth from lies. If you don’t let outside forces enter the equation. If you simply sit somewhere quiet and think “What is the TRUTH of this matter? What is the RIGHT thing to do here?” You will KNOW the answer.

Whether it is learned or instinct- We ALL have the intellectual process and internal knowledge to inherently know ‘murder is wrong’. We KNOW stealing is wrong. We KNOW hurting others is wrong. You CAN use that same force to know what is the RIGHT thing to do in ANY situation. 

And if THAT doesn’t work for you, maybe you should try Occam’s razor. Basically:

THE MOST SIMPLE ANSWER… IS MOST-LIKELY THE TRUTH.

*___________________________________________________________________________*

NOW- Here are some NON-PARTISAN RESOURCES for your research that you WILL be doing:

But the long-time truth-preaching beacon of the internet has ALWAYS been: 

  • SNOPES.com Remember all those stories you heard in fourth grade? That email warning about gangs that your mom forwarded to you? That person at work who knows everything? SNOPES is the resource you need for EVERYTHING.

———- THE BOTTOM LINE ————

HERE is my “TWO-STEP PLAN TO THE TRUTH”.

1- RESEARCH the topic. Look at BOTH sides of an issue. REALLY listen to the other side. Put yourselves in their shoes and understand how they came to that conclusion.

2- Don’t trust me… or a newscaster.. or a politician… or family member/friend. Instead-Trust yourself. Get past all the CRAP and just SEE the truth.

It’s there … if you want it.

WHY does your LOCAL RADIO STATION SUCK?

When I was bit younger, during Reagan’s deregulation of media ownership/killing of the Fairness Doctrine… I took a fishing trip with a local guy who had taken an interest in politics. His name: Jeff Sessions.

I tried to slip into casual conversation how deregulation would mean lower quality radio and loss of countless jobs.. and REALLY the loss of an artform.

Deaf ears. 

Check out THIS ARTICLE from Dick Taylor to find out why your local radio station sucks. The short story: ENORMOUS corporations bought everything and squeezed every penny out of it until it was dead.

“I’ve always believed that what happened in the halls of my radio stations were transmitted out, over-the-air, to the listener. We transmitted so much more than just the music we played, the news we delivered, and the entertainment we provided. We transmitted an intangible spirit that was contagious and attracted loyal listeners.”
