One Last Kiss…

01) KISS Announces ‘End of the Road’ Farewell World Tour

02) Kiss Online

“After a legendary 45-year career, KISS is taking a final run. The band announced their End of the Road farewell tour on NBC’s America’s Got Talent on Wednesday (Sept. 19).

The multi-year stint will give fans one last opportunity to witness the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees’ famous explosive live shows.

KISS is the latest of music icons who have announced final live shows recently, including Elton John, Paul Simon, Ozzy Osbourne and Lynyrd Skynyrd.”

After 45 years…Kiss is one hell of a lot deeper and diverse, than you would ever imagine if you are only familiar with their most famous hits [like Rock and Roll All Night, Deuce or Strutter]…

…Most of their early hits demand time to grow on you, before it hits you…that this is actually good…

…And for all the complaints about “over production”, or “too slick/commercial a sound [aka it’s not the true band]”…they still put out a number of great modern [even a tad bit more “pop-ish”, soft rock] tracks.

It’s interesting how polarizing Kiss seems to be, whenever they come up in conversation with just anybody…randomly…

Most people who hate Kiss, seem to have a very shallow exposure to their music.

…And I can more less understand that…Most of their more modern stuff, just does not get played on the radio…or anywhere…You have to seek it out, and purchase it online…or luck out, and find it in the tiny “music section” at a department store.

Kiss had a rebirth, and a metamorphosis, back in the early mid-eighties…It was their second heyday, and they were a lot more polished…They put out some excellent content, during and after that time.

…But Kiss will never truly escape the “type casting”, of loud, unsophisticated guitars, and unvarnished vocals…Not given what most people hear from them.

I always get a bit depressed, whenever I hear of another fair well tour…

…I think the first one that really caught my attention, was the Cher tour…and more recently, the Elton John tour…What a horrible loss, his departure is going to be…

So many people, who’ve produced the music of my life…are leaving us.

FBI Investigating Matt Whitaker Company…

01) FBI Investigating Matt Whitaker Company


“Trump’s pick for Attorney General is under investigation by the FBI.

The FBI and U.S. Postal Inspection Service have a criminal investigation underway against a company that paid acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker as an advisory board member who promoted the company, the Wall Street Journal and the Miami New Times first reported. The FBI doesn’t comment on active investigations.

Whitaker wrote at least one email on behalf of World Patent Marketing to a disgruntled customer citing his former job as a U.S. attorney and threatened the potential of ‘serious civil and criminal consequences.’ He received $9,375 for his advisory role, and was owed $7,500, according to company records. The firm’s CEO also donated $2,600 to Whitaker’s 2014 Senate campaign in Iowa. Whitaker appeared in promotions for the company and his name and background was used as part of its telemarketing script.

01) The moral roots of liberals and conservatives – Jonathan Haidt


“Psychologist Jonathan Haidt studies the five moral values that form the basis of our political choices, whether we’re left, right, or center.

By understanding more about our moral roots, his hope is that we can learn to be civil and open-minded.”

“Get ready for Hillary Clinton 4.0. More than 30 years in the making, this new version of Mrs. Clinton, when she runs for president in 2020, will come full circle—back to the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994. True to her name, Mrs. Clinton will fight this out until the last dog dies. She won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House.

I’m thinking at this point…the only graceful act we can expect out of Hillary, where it comes to any hope of her leaving the U.S. presidential races alone…is dying.

“Cenk Uygur speaks with Andrew Yang, an entrepreneur and 2020 presidential candidate who is running to combat job automation.

$1000 a month minimum pay is possible…It’s still poverty level income…but it is possible to do, on a social level…

The thing is…everyday people need to let go of this fantasy we’ve been fed for decades…that we are all able to become filthy rich, and attain a life of privilege…

It always goes through my mind, whenever this type of issue comes up…a time when Bill Maher was talking about unrealistic expectations in U.S. living standards…and he asked, “why cant we be happy, with enough to make us comfortable and content?”…

…And, in my opinion…Bill was correct…

…We have this out of whack notion, that we need to escape the rat race, by somehow amassing large amounts of money and stuff…

…We’ve allowed the pursuit of work, earning and sustenance to become such a treacherous, soul destroying burden…that most people spend their lives fantasizing on how to escape it…

…It’s pathetic…because anymore…people who simply got in on a retirement plan from their employer, are like some type of lottery winner…for that, alone…It’s about as good, as your typical person can hope for…they put in their decades, and escape with a monthly allowance, once their most productive years are over.

A base income could work…

…But we need a radical change in social/cultural expectations…

…We need a fundamental shift, in how we look at quality of life…and how we value life, which is not solely our own life.

I get it, that there are people who need to pursue uncommon heights…I get it, that this freedom is important…I get it, that sometimes this requires massive amounts of money…I get it, that some people thrive on power…

…When it comes to something so universal and foundational, as the currency which everybody is forced to rely on…some of these individuals are having a treacherous impact, on the masses of society…

…Their pursuit of turning themselves into some type of “self made royalty”, is impoverishing untold numbers of people…There is a high cost, which comes with that type of inequality in wealth, status and power…and it’s sustained by vast swaths of the common folk.

I’m not saying individuals are unethical for becoming [or being] wealthy…

…But pursing wealth while isolated in one’s own bubble, often leads to unethical outcomes.

The money, power and freedom which rests with all that consolidated money…it should be spread around, in the hands of the masses…the people who need it to survive…

…It shouldn’t be in some billionaires bank account, so they can get a jolly kick out of getting a few extra zeros on their bank statements.

What real world value does having these massively wealthy people, bring to the masses of the world?…What is the social cost, of that kind of hoarding?

Even if we consider that a lot of these wealthy people are philanthropists…the power of that given money, is being funneled and decided upon, by the bias of one person [or, that of a relative few people]…whomever “owns” the money…as opposed to a representative collective of the population…

…This has a terribly corruptive impact…

…Or…it does if we most value the voice, and the quality of life, of the common individual.

There’s far, far, far more common people, who are barely getting by…than there are wealthy people, who live a pampered lifestyle [and who will likely be able to continue doing so, even if their taxes go way, way up]…

…So…where should the most concern be placed?

Why Do We Undervalue Introverts?…

“About Susan Cain’s TED Talk

In a culture where being social and outgoing are celebrated, it can be difficult to be an introvert. Susan Cain argues introverts bring extraordinary talents to the world, and should be celebrated.

About Susan Cain

Susan Cain is a former corporate lawyer and negotiations consultant — and a self-proclaimed introvert. In her book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, Cain notes that although our culture undervalues them dramatically, introverts have made some of the great contributions to society. Based on research and interviews, she argues that we design our schools and workplaces for extroverts, and that this bias creates a waste of talent, energy and happiness.”

This is INFP stuff, right here…

…This explains a lot about me.
