The Gods Made Girls

A brief word of warning – While the song in question is couched in the normal Christian monotheism of America, my commentary is in the framework of my faith, which is generally described as Pagan. If that’s going to be a larger issue for you than the actual meat of the commentary, there’s this thing called the Back Button. 😉

The Gods Made Girls

Not only is RaeLynn aka Racheal Lynn Woodward delectably cute and a fine singer, she’s got the right of things in “God Made Girls.” The Gods made women to complete men and men to complete women.

Maiden, Warrior, Mother, or Crone – whichever Aspect they currently evoke, the Gods made women to make men better than they’d otherwise be. That’s the crux of it that underlies any and all expressions of gender roles in the world.

A Hot Spaghetti Western

Before I going any further with this, thanks need to be tendered to Cmblake6 for this video which I scarfed off of his blog.

Thank The Gods They’re Country Girls

OK, I’ve always been a fan of spaghetti westerns, but when a Italian band like the Village Girls releases “Thank God I’m A Country Girl” my enjoyment of the genre reaches whole new heights.

Bluegrassification

Bluegrassification – Is it an insidious plot to “mountainize” music, an example of returning music to its roots, or just of means of keeping bluegrass music alive in the 21st Century?

Bluegrassification

I know some people will dislike it and think it a heinous thing, especially when non-White music is “mountainized.” They’ll consider it some horrid form of cultural appropriation. Others, without certain prejudices, will think it’s awesome. Still more I think will just shrug, not being the least bit fond of bluegrass music in the first place.

Personally, I think it’s oddly cool. It’s also, in my opinion, musically significant that so many genres of music can be so thoroughly “blugrassified” without losing the character of the original score at all.

ObamaCare By Morning

Ridicule is not only an effective weapon, it is often the only weapon that can be used against dangerous, inane foolishness.

Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.

— Saul Alinsky
Rule 5 – Rules For Radicals, 1971

~*~

Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them.

— Thomas Jefferson
July 30, 1816

Some surprising citizens of America understand this and are not afraid to make use ridicule in the attempt effect change and restore hope for the rebirth of America and the cessation of certain forms of destructive stupidity.

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley Lampoon The (U)ACA’ Failure

During the opening segment of the 2013 Country Music Awards (CMA), hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley did a hilarious skit and song about the abysmal but expected failure that has been the ObamaCare quasi-launch.

As you might guess, American viewers were laughing out loud at this lampooning of Obama’s signature and singular “achievement.” Contriwise, Liberals and their minority tenants – the few of the latter that actually watch the CMA show – were outraged.

The outrage is unsurprising. After all, this was a pair of country music performers – a quintessentially White and American musical genre – performing for an audience that is overwhelmingly equally White and American, is going to be declared as racists, knuckle-draggers, and with other epithets for lampooning any of Obama’s many failures.

Of course, the Liberals’ and minorities’ outraged response is just more evidence that ridicule is both effective and the best and only non-lethal weapon against Obama, his destructive foolishness, and his followers. 😉

BONUS: If you’re like Brad Paisley and myself until quite recently and don’t know what twerking is, this is twerking:

I’ve got to say that, while I don’t care for music in the least, I do like the moves these women are doing. Much like traditional – not Cabaret! – belly dancing, it’s a very pleasant mixture of eroticism and extreme precision and muscle control.
