I could not upload a musical information post without adding something about my favorite music – the Devil’s Music, the Blues.
The video below is a great Documentary for Blues lovers AND a really informative introduction to the the Blues for those who haven’t discovered the Blues yet. The Robert Johnson music gives the video just the right feel. This Road Trip is the Blues!

NOTE: Although it may appear on the screen below that the video is unavailable if you click on the screen the video will appear. This happens on a very rare basis and I haven’t figured out how to correct it yet but I’ll keep trying. . . .ED
Ever wondered what your brain sounds like when it thinks? Researchers in China did — so they invented a way to translate the brain’s waves into music.
In initial attempts, the scientists had ended up with tunes that were jangly and sometimes discordant, but more recently they discovered a way to make brain music sound better by combining data from the brain’s electrical impulses with brain blood-flow measurements. Besides combining science with art, the researchers hope that, one day, brain music can be used to help people control their brain waves, easing conditions such as anxiety and depression. . . .

Doc Watson played the acoustic guitar with such pure precision that Bob Dylan once compared his picking to “water running.”
The folk-music icon, 89, died Tuesday, (May 29,2012) after a fall last week at his home in Deep Gap, N.C., and subsequent colon surgery.
Blind from infancy, Watson grew up playing harmonica and a homemade banjo but learned guitar after his father bought him a $12 Stella acoustic when he was 13. Born Arthel Lane Watson, he picked up the nickname “Doc” at the suggestion of an audience member at a radio broadcast when he was in his teens. . . . Read Complete Report w/links to video and photos
Last month, a controversial anonymous letter entitled “The Secret Meeting That Changed Rap Music and Destroyed a Generation” hit the internet by storm. The letter, which claims that an unnamed top music industry executive promoted gangsta rap to fill private prisons, was republished by hundreds of blogs and websites, and was reposted on countless forums, Twitter, and Facebook profiles. Everyone from Public Enemy’s Chuck D to Freeway Ricky Ross had something to say about it. Various YouTube videos were posted to discuss the anonymous letter, and translations of the letter were posted in French, Spanish, and other languages for international audiences. The Huffington Post even published a critique questioning the validity of the claims made by the anonymous author who, fearing for his wellbeing, provided no names or details that might reveal his identity.. . .

There are all kinds of Conspiracies and cover-ups going on in the secretive world around and below us. One of the worst we are facing is the lose of any free press. And we are trying to keep our readers here at THEI abreast of all the stories the Controllers media, for whatever reason, seems to ignore so often that it has become blatantly obvious. Since I added this NEW Hollow Earth Insider alternative news section to our site we’ve reported on stories they just refuse to talk about. Well, I found another. When over the last several years have you heard about THIS from our vigilant media? Me neither.
Actually the story it self has everything; we start with the Rock Legend Bob Dylan, the undisputed leader of flower power and the hippie movement of the 60s-70s add in a literately unknown song writer from the same time-period with rock solid proof of his claims, add in plagiarism, a should-have-been-high-profile court case and a cast of music bigwigs, sprinkle in a handful of characters and this story should be way out front. yet the story goes unmentioned by the main stream media.
But it was Mr. Damiano’s evidence and his promise of revealing connections to the media blackout of the case involving conspiracy red-flag contenders the Federal Reserve Bank and Goldman Sacs. Just my meat. I”l be following this closely. …EDITOR
“No artist can lay claim to the controversy that has surrounded the career of songwriter James Damiano. Thirty two years ago James Damiano began an odyssey that led him into a legal maelstrom with Bob Dylan that, to this day, fascinates the greatest of intellectual minds. . .”
Once again … Strange sounds … this time from a lake … or could these mysterious sounds, like may others we have reported on over the years, actually be coming from UNDER the lake thus actually making them underground sounds? . . . EDITOR
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK — Yellowstone Lake and the rugged backcountry that surrounds it is a place where millions go seeking solitude and silence. Yet it in a well-documented but rarely discussed phenomenon, some visitors to the Lake area have experienced remarkable celestial sounds of unknown and unexplained origin.
“They resemble the ringing of telegraph wires or the humming of a swarm of bees, beginning softly in the distance, growing rapidly plainer until directly overhead, and then fading as rapidly in the opposite direction,” wrote Hiram M. Chittenden in 1895 in his book, “The Yellowstone National Park.”
Chittenden’s description is one of several in the historical record — as well as many more from popular anecdotal accounts — of strange sounds or “lake music” coming from the skies around Yellowstone Lake and Shoshone lake.
Chittenden was an accomplished engineer with rigorous scientific discipline who built roads and bridges in the park, as well as locks in Seattle’s Lake Washington Ship Canal. He was not given to idle speculation or unsubstantiated gossip about seemingly magical events.
But he is hardly the only — or even the first — prominent Yellowstone visitor to write about the strange and unexplained lake sounds. . . . Read Complete Report
