I wasn't trying to tell wright from wrong,,,If the word american suits
country's name, it's fine with me I guess?,,,,,,(I lived in the states and
was constantly asked if I was American).......
I was refering to labeling terms, even in the US you have
Javier, Kimosabe!!!! It is friggin annoying isn't it? Constanly Labeling,
Constantly Bickering and Oh the Zenophobia of the lot of us.
AfricanAmericans versus Nubians, ClevelandAmericans vs ChineseAmerican vs
SinoAmericans and don't make the mistake of refrring to a human as Oriental,
I have told furniture can be Oriental but not carbon based units.
Back to the main point of this argument there should be more conciuosnes of
music's roots - specialy in music stores.
I see that point yet I would ponder that what lies ahead is just as
important if not more than what was in the past.
how bout finding Ratos de Porao in the Latin section!
The word latin does not represent all the music coming from Latin america.
Latin, for one does it really represent Mexico down to the South American
Border of Panama? Isn't Latin a language that you are forced to learn in
School up North? I dunno. The Romance Languages are based on Latin yet
would an Iberian consider it a offense to be referred to as an Latino. I am
confused and perplexed.
And Now for something Totally Differnt, Daytona Motorcycle Racing this
coming Sunday Delayed Broadcast on Speedvision with music by Moodorama,
Ponder that one, the sweet sound of Ducati and H-D Twins with great
Downtempo but then her comes those annoying arsche in-line Fours buzzing
like Sewing machines.
What is the title of that ending song of Monty Python's "Life of Brian"?
p.s.: May Aprilia Dominate World Superbike and may Sade and Maxwell have a
world Tour that stops nearby!!!!!!! "I have a Dream"!!!!!!!!
