Okay, for today's lesson, this y'all just have to read and figure for yourself.
I'm not sure what to think of this guy. I have to keep putting my mind into the 60's for this .... and this early .... that's just to much brain power for me.
( Not a morning person )

One quote from this that gets me though

In Soul on Ice, the women are either madonnas or whores. ... wtf ?

Ok Ayla I did some research on this guy and I think he was an ass. Sorry that is how I feel.



In the book, Cleaver infamously acknowledges raping several white women, which he defended as "an insurrectionary act." He also admitted that he began his career as a rapist by "practicing on black girls in the ghetto." He maintains that his criminal actions have nothing to do with the views expressed in the book.

Mixed feelings on Eldridge Cleaver as a person due to his disrespect and abuse of women (especially white women, or OGRE's, although he didn't start out respecting black women much more). I do think he was an eloquent writer and I admire that talent within him. Read pieces of Soul on Ice and it's disturbing and brilliant at the same time. Especially when you consider where he was coming from (liked his reference to having a 'higher uneducation').

I was aware of Soul on Ice but did some research and found he also wrote Soul on Fire which dealt with his years in exile in Algiers after fleeing the US to escape prosecution for Panther related activities. Did not know that Timothy Leary joined him there and that EC subsequently placed TL under 'revolutionary arrest' (anyway I couldn't recall this fact - like much from back then...) This book also deals with the Panther's relations with North Vietnam during the Vietnam War.

One interesting tidbit - an invention of Eldridge's which I don't think took off with public:

In 1975, Cleaver modeled anatomically fitted men's pants he designed featuring a "Cleaver sleeve" which was a penis sheath that was basically a sock protruding from the front of a pair of pants???

Jan 26, 2007... tune in



"Turn on, tune in, drop out" is a counterculture phrase coined by Timothy Leary in the 1960s. It is an excerpt from a prepared speech he delivered at the opening of a press conference in New York City in September 1966. This phrase urged people to initiate cultural changes through the use of psychedelics.

Leary later explained in his 1983 autobiography Flashbacks: "'Turn on' meant go within to activate your neural and genetic equipment. Become sensitive to the many and various levels of consciousness and the specific triggers that engage them. Drugs were one way to accomplish this end. 'Tune in' meant interact harmoniously with the world around you - externalize, materialize, express your new internal perspectives. Drop out suggested an elective, selective, graceful process of detachment from involuntary or unconscious commitments. 'Drop Out' meant self-reliance, a discovery of one's singularity, a commitment to mobility, choice, and change. Unhappily my explanations of this sequence of personal development were often misinterpreted to mean 'Get stoned and abandon all constructive activity.'"

Oh Yeah ...

Or sometimes was just way to much " tuned in " or at least I thought I was

Wharfy, I don't see Aretha as a figure skater , but she is from Detroit and still lives there, so what do I know about anybody's winter recreation.

. . . Oh, man:

“Rhythm and Blades” – Annual Ice Show
Figure Skating in Harlem students gave two crowd-pleasing performances of its 8th annual ice show “Rhythm & Blades” on April 1 and 2, skating to the sounds of the great women of R&B from Aretha Franklin to Alicia Keys. . . .

Girls Flip for Surya at Largest Ever SOUL ON ICE Skating Party {caps on page}
On February 7, 2004 the FSH {Figure Skating in Harlem} Parent Association hosted its most successful SOUL ON ICE winter skating party ever, sponsored by Carver Bank. Over 1,200 family members, friends and neighbors came to Lasker Rink in Central Park to enjoy skating, music, food, and a special exhibition by Surya Bonaly, a star of Champions on Ice and 9-time French National Champion and World Silver Medalist of African descent famous for her athletic back flips. . . .

STUDENTS PRESENT DAZZLING TRIBUTE TO HARLEM'S APOLLO THEATER
FSH students were joined by honored guests Grammy-award winning singer Roberta Flack and world-class professional skater Rory Flack-Burghart to celebrate Figure Skating in Harlem's 3rd season. This sold-out ice show called "Apollo on Ice" was held at Riverbank State Park in March. Students performed to recorded music by Apollo legends Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, and Stevie Wonder. . . .

I must've been born too late, because I don't think I've ever used the term "tune in" except in reference to radio and TV. Possibly also in reference to telepathic vibes, but even then re wavelengths and tuning in like a radio--I guess this is getting close to the '60s sense, except for being so literal and technical about it.

"Turn on," yes.

It is rumored that the song "Mellow Yellow" is about smoking dried banana skins, which was believed to be a hallucinogenic drug in the 1960s, but this rumor has since been debunked. According to Donovan's notes accompanying the album "Donovan's Greatest Hits" the rumor that one could get high from smoking dried banana skins was started by Country Joe McDonald in 1966, and happened to occur three weeks before "Mellow Yellow" was released as a single. Thus, the misconception of the song's meaning soon followed its release.

The song's title actually refers to the fact that Donovan had suffered from liver disease in the winter of 1966 and had become severely jaundiced

The first time I ever admitted to myself that I liked a girl, I was in grade school and this song was running through my head. I substituted the young lady's name for "Saffron" and sang it out loud, but quietly, to myself. I got a real thrill doing that! Even at that moment, I could tell I was crossing a threshold that could never be crossed back.

It wasn't for another 7 years or so that I actually heard the word mellow being used by anybody. Up to then it was just some distant hippie affectation. A couple friends and I were with Al's big brother, a college boy, who talked about a certain album being "mellow." Al picked up on that, and he was all eager to demonstrate his command of the lingo, asking his brother, "So it's a mellow one, right? That's a mellow band." Al was all "mellow" this and "mellow" that for the next hour.

I think I never quite got over the feeling that the word was an affectation, feeling unnatural, so I'd usually use laid back when I meant mellow like that. Otherwise, mellow of course could still apply, with very narrow meaning, to music and flavors. I don't think I ever said I was feeling mellow or somebody was "harshing my mellow" , except mockingly.

The case against mellow was significantly strengthened with the emergence of the mellotron and permanently sealed with Olivia Newton-John's "Have You Never Been Mellow?"

Jan 30,2007.. de facto Segregation

ethat happens by circumstance rather than by legal requirement. Something in fact (de facto) not by law (de jure). Example: When Blacks are concentrated in a neighborhood, the schools will be presominantely Black or segregated. The busing of school children to different districts during the 70's was menat to corect this situation.

For a brief time in college, some of us guys on my dorm floor used to say "de facto" instead of "in fact." We'd give it an emphasis, especially the "fac" syllable, to make it sound more mock-important and -professorly. "No, I haven't gone to lunch yet. De FAC-to, I'm going right now."

There was a little working in of "ipso facto" and "ex post facto," but they didn't catch on as synonyms for "de facto." The few times they were used, they were used more correctly than "de facto." So, the tone of voice was still there, but because the usage was not flagrantly wrong, the mockery and quirkiness lost its absurd punch. De facto, using the correct "ipso facto" could only be a hollow reminder of how multidimensional the incorrect "de facto" was.

Jan 31,2007.."What a long strange Trip it's been"

notable lyrics from the Grateful Dead song "Truckin". It is difficult to put into words what the hippie era has meant to this world. The year 1984 would have dawned as Orwell predicted had it not been for the counterculture of the 1960s and 1970s. We would all be living in a much more oppressive and controlled environment, rich and poor alike. The phrase, "what a long strange trip its been" has moved into our vocabulary and now examplifies the period, the movement, and the changes that transpired during the hippie era.
