Simplisme voor gevorderden deel 93 “just give me my equality”

The name of this tune is Mississippi goddam
And I mean every word of itAlabama’s gotten me so upset
Tennessee made me lose my rest
And everybody knows about Mississippi goddamAlabama’s gotten me so upset
Tennessee made me lose my rest
And everybody knows about Mississippi goddamCan’t you see it
Can’t you feel it
It’s all in the air
I can’t stand the pressure much longer
Somebody say a prayerAlabama’s gotten me so upset
Tennessee made me lose my rest
And everybody knows about Mississippi goddamThis is a show tune
But the show hasn’t been written for it, yetHound dogs on my trail
School children sitting in jail
Black cat cross my path
I think every day’s gonna be my lastLord have mercy on this land of mine
We all gonna get it in due time
I don’t belong here
I don’t belong there
I’ve even stopped believing in prayerDon’t tell me
I tell you
Me and my people just about due
I’ve been there so I know
They keep on saying ‘Go slow!’But that’s just the trouble
‘Do it slow’
Washing the windows
‘Do it slow’
Picking the cotton
‘Do it slow’
You’re just plain rotten
‘Do it slow’
You’re too damn lazy
‘Do it slow’
The thinking’s crazy
‘Do it slow’
Where am I going
What am I doing
I don’t know
I don’t knowJust try to do your very best
Stand up be counted with all the rest
For everybody knows about Mississippi goddamI made you thought I was kiddin’Picket lines
School boy cots
They try to say it’s a communist plot
All I want is equality
For my sister my brother my people and meYes you lied to me all these years
You told me to wash and clean my ears
And talk real fine just like a lady
And you’d stop calling me Sister SadieOh but this whole country is full of lies
You’re all gonna die and die like flies
I don’t trust you any more
You keep on saying ‘Go slow!’
‘Go slow!’But that’s just the trouble
‘Do it slow’
‘Do it slow’
Mass participation
‘Do it slow’
‘Do it slow’
Do things gradually
‘Do it slow’
But bring more tragedy
‘Do it slow’
Why don’t you see it
Why don’t you feel it
I don’t know
I don’t knowYou don’t have to live next to me
Just give me my equality
Everybody knows about Mississippi
Everybody knows about Alabama
Everybody knows about Mississippi goddam, that’s it

Sheep Hero

Gisteren deze film mogen zien op uitnodiging van Gingermood.
Prachtige film over de rasidealist en herder Stijn, die tegen de windmolens van het systeem vecht en uiteindelijk….
Nee ik zeg niets, ga maar kijken van februari 2019 in de bioscoop

I was really a failure, really, really, really a failure

James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem), according to himself, was a real failure, listen to his story.

“And all of a sudden I was kind of cool..”

“Just trying to actually be as much myself I possible could..”

Keep up the good work

Wow, de schoonheid van het verouderingsproces in een kleine vijf minuten door Anthony Cerniello.

Deze korte film waart al weer meer dan een jaartje rond in cyberspace en was even aan mijn aandacht voorbij gegaan.

Dank Joyce voor de inspiratie.
