What's All This Then

Why should I care what this guy has to say?

The correct answer is that you shouldn’t. We’re all entitled to our opinions. Develop your own. I try to be sane and rational, but that may change with the level of caffeine intake. I’m just telling my stories in the hopes they may amuse and/or inform others. And... I Confess... I'm showing off my bitchen collection a bit.

Political Circus

We have a new president and the world hasn't blown up yet.  Well, maybe it has by now. I'm writing this post a good two months before it's scheduled post date.

Political turmoil between The Right and The Left is as old as  - well - The Right and The Left.

In the 60's it rose to a head and the establishment had to take notice.  The voting age was dropped to 18.  The war in Vietnam had to go and even the war hawks agreed.   

In 1969, renown exploitation studio American International Pictures cashed in.  They produced 'Wild in the Streets' which gave a 'what if' scenario of a radical young rock star becoming president.

In the film we are treated to such things as Shelly Winters trying to become a hippie and congress being dosed with LSD.

It produced a bitchen soundtrack album as well

Original Motion Picture Soundtrack - Wild in the Streets  (Tower 1968)

Great songs on this as well.  'Fourteen or Fight,' 'Fifty Two Percent' and the Classic 'The Shape of Things to Come.'    Songs by Brill Building tunesmiths Weil/Mann

Awesome cast featuring the film debut of Richard Pryor.

So see it if you can.  Everyone over 30 gets dosed and thrown into a concentration camp.
