Muscle Shoals -2613 Jackson Highway, Sheffield, AL, USA

Independent Lens, NPT, showed a film tonight that knocked me off my feet.  It is about Rick Hall, FAME, and the Swampers foundation of the Muscle Shoals Sound Studios.  -EXCELLENT FILM- I’ll soon be 3 score and never knew of the fact that most of the great music I grew up with, had recordings of, whose artists concerts I attended, and have imprinted memories of…was recorded in a small modest studio just south of Sheffield, AL using an awesome NEVE8078 …at a place called Muscle Shoals.  Really feeling like I had slept through the ‘music listening’ part of my life, I watched this film tonight in awe.  I’ll be StartPageing the history and happenings of  Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, aka. FAME Recording Studios, off and on until I truly gain the as much of it’s richness as possible.  What is regretful is the fact that I worked on a project for almost 2 weeks just last year….right down the street from this epic gathering place and didn’t even know it was there!!  …argh!   If you really love ALL genre of music from the late sixties thru even today you will truly love clicking these links….and also watch the film yourselves.

This IS where it all happened, and where most began.

This story is true Americana musical history which brought artists from all over the world.  What is so unique about this story, as you will read below, is the fact of the four musicians who have played background and full arrangements for Grammy winning artists [some of whom were 'nobodies' until they went to Muscle Shoals].

Muscle Shoals Sound

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:  The Muscle Shoals Sound Studio was formed in Sheffield, Alabama, in 1969 when a group of four session musicians called The Swampers decided to leave the nearby FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals to create their own recording set-up.

The four, Barry Beckett (keyboards), Roger Hawkins (drums), Jimmy Johnson (guitar) and David Hood (bass), then became known as The Muscle Shoals Sound Rhythm Section and were the first rhythm section to own a studio and eventually run their own publishing and production companies.

Their backing and arrangements have been heard on many recordings, including major hits from Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin, and the Staple Singers, but a wide range of artists in popular music recorded hit songs and complete albums at the studio.

NEVE8078 in London, England…only 12 exist in the entire world.

The group first came together in 1967 and initially played sessions in New York and Nashville, as well as on recordings made at the Rick Hall‘s FAME facility. The initial successes in soul and R&B led to the arrival at the Muscle Shoals Sound studios of more mainstream rock and pop performers, including The Rolling Stones, Traffic, Elton John, Boz Scaggs, Willie Nelson, Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Dr. Hook, Elkie Brooks, Millie Jackson and Julian Lennon.

The studios at 3614 Jackson Highway were relocated to an updated and larger facility on Alabama Avenue in Sheffield in the late 1970s, but the original building still sees occasional use as a recording studio. The Black Keys album, Brothers, was recorded there in 2009 and achieved Grammy Award success in 2011. Recording equipment was brought into the former studio to make the album.

The original Muscle Shoals Sound Studios building is listed on The National Register of Historic Places.[1] In June 2013, it was sold by businessman Noel Webster, who kept the building maintained, to the Muscle Shoals Music Foundation. Their goal is to eventually make the historic building a music museum.[2]

The Alabama Avenue studios were sold in 1985 to the Jackson, Mississippi based soul and blues label, Malaco Records, which also bought the MSS publishing rights. Malaco used the Sheffield studios for their own artists, including Johnnie Taylor, Bobby Bland and Little Milton, as well as continuing to operate their own facility in Jackson. The building was bought by a film and television production company in 2005 after Malaco decided to close the studios, selling the two Neve sound desks to studios elsewhere in the U.S, according to an article in Billboard magazine.

Filmmaker Greg Camalier premiered his documentary Muscle Shoals at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2013. It is about Rick Hall, FAME, and the Swampers foundation of the Muscle Shoals Sound Studios, The film includes interviews with Bono, Alicia Keys, Mick Jagger, and Keith Richards.

The Muscle Shoals Sound Rhythm Section are referred to as “the Swampers” in the lyrics of Sweet Home Alabama by Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Military Suicide …outnumbers casualties

Mar 4, 2014 5:42PM ET /

The Military’s Suicide Rate Is Much More Complicated Than Combat Stress

Suicide rates have historically been lower in the military, because recruiting tends to weed out some at-risk people (like elderly men, for example, who have

Support the TROOPS….NOT the WARS

a higher suicide rate than the population at large). That changed in 2008, when the number of military suicides surged ahead. The suicide rate for civilians of similar age and demographics to the Army has remained relatively level at around 19 per 100,000 people. But during the last decade of war, that’s changed. In 2013, the Department of Veterans Affairs released the startling figure that 22 veterans were killing themselves every day, or one soldier every 65 minutes.  That’s 8030 in 2013!  …or over 15 times more than in 2012!!
524 suicides in 2012:
by Alan Zarembo
LA Times, June 17, 2013

In data compiled by the Defense Department on military suicides, perhaps the most surprising statistic is that between 2008 and 2011, 52% of service members who took their own lives had never been deployed to Afghanistan or Iraq.
That figure, which challenges the popular belief that exposure to war is the primary driver of a surge in suicides, became the basis for an L.A. Times story Sunday.
But another statistic in the story also deserves attention: 524.
That is the number of suicides in the military in 2012.
To those who have followed the issue, it may seem like a misprint. The Pentagon recently announced that the 2012 total was 349.
The Defense Department, however, has only tracked suicides of military personnel who were on active duty when they died.

SUICIDE CONTEST: Study Reveals Game Among Army Commanders to See Who Could Abuse their Subordinates the Worst

Former Army Anthropologist Looking at Suicide Causes Found Numerous Cases of Army Leaders Who Held Competitions to See Who Could “Smoke” their Troops the Worst … and Push them the Brink of Suicide

by Daniel Zwerdling
National Public Radio, Feb. 6, 2014

*Editor’s Note – This story perhaps explains better than any so far in the reporting of military culture, and why so many young men and women would rather die than continue serving in the military. The “toxic leader” issue has been mostly ignored by reporters and experts examining the circumstances behind military suicide. This report is shocking, and in this writer’s opinion, reveals criminal behavior among Army leaders charged with the health and welfare of their subordinates.

USA -a Country Run by Idiots..

...Just saying

…Just saying

By Junius P. Long
Food For Thought
 
If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without
a license, but not for being in the country illegally …
you might live in a country run by idiots.

If you have to get your parents permission to go on
a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get
an abortion …
You might live in a country run by idiots.

If you have to show identification to board an airplane,
cash a check, buy liquor or check out a library book,
but not to vote for who runs the government …
You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
If the government wants to ban stable, law-abiding
citizens from owning gun magazines with more than
ten rounds, but gives 20- F-16 fighter jets to the crazy
new leaders in Egypt ….
You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
If, in the largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas,
but not a 24-ounce soda because 24-ounces of a
sugary drink might make you fat …
You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
If an 80-year-old woman in a wheel chair can be stripped searched
by the TSA but a woman in a hijab is only subject to
having her neck and head searched …
You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
If your government believes that the best way to
eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions
more …
You might live in a country run by idiots.

If a seven year old boy can be thrown out of school
for saying his teachers “cute,” but hosting a sexual
exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable …
You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
If hard work and success are met with higher taxes
and more government intrusion, while not working
is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid,
subsidized housing and free cell phones …
You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
If the government’s plan for getting people back to
work is to incentivize NOT working with 99 weeks
of unemployment checks and no requirement to
prove they applied but can’t find work …
You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself
makes you more “safe” according to the government …
You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
 
If you are offended by this article, I’ll bet you voted
for the idiots who are running, and ruining our great country today.

Obama Funds Insurers, Dumps Insured

Obama lets insurers keep more profit, pay less for care | The Daily Caller.

Obama LIES.... again!

Republican Tennessee Rep. Diane Black says that the Obama administration’s most recent Obamacare rule change will result in insurance companies keeping more profits while paying less for customers’ health care needs.

“I am writing to express my concern with the proposed rule change released on Friday, March 14th that would allow insurance companies to keep an additional two percent of premiums for purposes other than medical care…your department is now proposing to increase the amount of money that insurance companies will be allowed to retain for profit,” Black wrote in a letter Tuesday to Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, which was obtained by The Daily Caller.

HHS’ Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services quietly introduced the new rule Friday, which relieves insurance companies of some of the damage about to be levied on them by Obamacare-related administrative costs.

“In the proposed rules, you have indicated that this adjustment in the ‘medical loss ratio’, or 80/20 rule, is due to the possibility of increased administrative costs in 2015. However, adjusting the percentage that insurance providers are required to spend on medical care by two percent would have the combined impact of reducing the amount that insurance providers will be required to pay for people’s medical care while increasing the amount that insurance companies are allowed to retain for profit and for executive pay,” Black wrote.

“This is deeply concerning, as it could result in higher out of pocket costs for consumers solely for the benefit of the insurance industry.”

EARTHSHIP … Garbage Warrior

I watched ‘Collective-Evolution‘ tonight followed by ‘Garbage Warrior‘.  All that I can say at this point is ….that I have been so caught up in hammering at the elitists, learning about chemtrails / aspartame / derivatives / false flags / Morgan / Rothschild and others….. filling my days with trying to stay on top of what they are up to, filling my mind with ways to try to expose them……I have not been able to see the forest because all that I thought I saw was the trees!!!

Earthship Biotecture

The film ‘Garbage Warrior‘ truly awakened my open, resourceful, inventive mind that has truly been dormant.  Since awakening to the TRUTH [2005] my time has been spent keeping up with the evil lurking all around us instead of moving ahead and beyond its control.  Seeing  the documentary film ‘Gargage Warrior’ tonight seems to have taken a burden weighing a ton off of my shoulders.  Having spent a short career in architecture, I gave up because of the bureaucracy involved in trying to develop true design.  I did accomplish building a few designs that were not the norm, but I let the system win and folded just before 911.  I am seeing now, that I have mainly been wandering around with my career and personal life since, without even realizing it.  Michael Reynolds, renegade New Mexico architect, ….I have read your message -Loud and Clear.

I don’t normally get personal on this site…. but seeing both of these films on the same nite has seemed to set a ‘restore point’ in my internal hard drive….  I must think, I must sleep …and I must dream for now.  I have been way too personal on this post…….

Preparedness Manual

..the link for the [PDF] 509 page manual is at the bottom of this article.

Normalcy Bias: the idea that people believe nothing bad will happen because it hasn’t happened before. It’s also known as analysis paralysis, incredulity response or the ostrich effect. Of course, that last one refers to someone behaving like an ostrich who puts its head in the sand.

Situational Awareness: paying attention to your environment and those around you. And you don’t have to be on a survival camping trek in the wilderness to put this into practice.

‘I won’t say it, I won’t see it, I won’t hear it’ …it will just go way.

Most Americans, sadly enough, practice the first of the above mental attitudes.  It doesn’t seem to matter how many natural disasters occur or how many toxins are announced in our foods or how many tic-tac-toe sessions appear in the sky above or how many disclaimers appear at the end of a Big Pharma drug ad or how many fiat dollars are taken from us to be given to the Wall Street crowd or untouchable global banks… the average American seems to think that he/she shall awaken in the morning and all shall be as it always is.  This attitude is truly the most dangerous situation in our world today, leading to the negative issues that impose upon our cultures, personal lives, families, and our world’s future.

Monument Valley

Most tend to fill their lives with sports stats, the latest gadget that the most popular movie star is possessing… or worst of all, most think that a fulfilling life is all about going to a J.O.B for 10 hours a day / 50 weeks a year,  then going to DisneyWorld for 2 weeks spending most of the money saved over those 50 weeks.  Before you know it, …your kids are grown, your partner is someone else, your physical health has deteriorated.  We send our kids to soccer, ballet class, winter camp, summer camp, public schools and more without ever simply taking the time to sit down as a family, teaching and sharing the basic skills needed to survive in our world.  The media and systems in place create the environment which lends most of us to detach from the basic practices that once abounded in our world and expanded individual thinking / cultural progress.

Sierra Nevada

Crime rates soar, belief and faith in our Creator diminishes, the ‘family’ slowly disappears, empathy becomes sympathy ….as Normalcy Bias takes over.  The tendency of narcissism is a normal trait for the 2-6 year old child, NOT an adult.  Narcissism in adulthood creates failing personal achievement and a society that forgets about its elderly and poor.

T R U T H N O W defines preparedness as: having the capability of

fertile valley

providing yourself and those around you with the wonderfulness of life and living in whatever environment you choose to live in and under any natural or imposed change in that environment that may occur.  Preparedness is a word that many misunderstand.  Preparedness is not all about hoarding guns, ammo, bunkers, and batteries.

There is looming threat lurking in our immediate future of an occurrence which would literally send our world back in time.  No electricity, no internet, no ATM machines, empty grocery shelves, no police protection…..a CME [coronal mass ejection] has happened before and shall happen again, not a question of ‘if’ rather a question of ‘when’.  The CME of 1859 was an event that was

CME

documented world-wide.  At that time, the main method of communication was telegraph and the ‘Pony-Express’.  People grew their own food, made their own clothes, were aware of natural homeopathy medicines… were essentially self reliant.  The CME event set telegraph wires and poles aflame and even electrocuted the operators.  It was also documented as a most spectacular light show in the night skies.  …..TODAY is another story.  Some figures put 90% of our world population have little if no knowledge of growing food or simple first-aid.  The US power grid relies upon roughly 350 mainframe power generators that, during a CME, would be lifeless for months if not years.  This would send us back into 17th-18th century environments.  …Not ‘IF’, but ‘WHEN’.

It is written in books of old, of many faiths, of many cultures that knowledge of such events happening and the frequency of them is practically a given.  Many scientists and theologians understand that it is a point of ‘WHEN’ and not ‘if’.  WAKE UP PEOPLE!  The choice is yours to hone skills and knowledge that have been used throughout the ages ….which have disappeared for almost 90% of mankind.  Are YOU one of them?

simple canning skills

The PDF link below is a voluminous work of providing you with the awareness and knowledge needed in the event of a CME, or in a worst case man-created EMP which would devastate most of our way of life, EITHER of which would cause

Woodworking

complete social chaos and violence, specifically in heavily populated areas as people would be at the mercy of their own survival knowledge.

We have no idea as to ‘When’ an event may occur, although history simply proves to us that it Shall Occur.  Some feel that techno is good and it very well is, in most respects.  BUT, techno is NOT an assured permanent way of life.

Vineyard

Personal knowledge and skills in art, planting & growing food, using tools, dressing game, teaching others, etc. are abilities that have always and shall always perpetuate the citizens of Earth.

Please read, enjoy and share this wonderful reference which is useful at any age and in any era. I am not affiliated with the LDS church [contributors of the document], but you will find that this reference is packed with knowledge, links, and methods that can keep you and those you care about alive and protected during a life-changing event.

Justina Pelletier …update

GREAT news for the Pelletier family.

02/28/2014 | 10:48 AM

Mass. agency says it is actively working to return Justina Pelletier to Connecticut

By Patricia Wen / Globe Staff

Massachusetts child protection officials are actively working to return 15-year-old Justina Pelletier, the teenager involved in a year-long custody fight that’s drawn national attention, to her home state of Connecticut, a spokesman for the state Department of Children and Families said Friday in the agency’s first public comment on the case.

“Our primary goal has always been the health and well-being of Justina. We want the parents to be able to work with the providers and courts to ultimately move Justina back to her home state of Connecticut. That is the objective, and is consistent with our previous efforts to find an appropriate placement near her home,” said agency spokesman Alec Loftus.
If she were to live at her family’s home in West Hartford, Conn., child-protection officials in that state, who would likely oversee the case, would likely demand that the girl receive services at home or that she attend a day program.

Justina’s father, Lou Pelletier, reached by phone Friday morning as he was driving to the family’s weekly visit with Justina, said, “Obviously this is a step in the right direction.”

IRS Warns: Obamacare Tax Must Be Paid with Tax Return

Americans for Tax Reform : IRS Warns: Obamacare Tax Must Be Paid with Tax Return.

President Obama’s Internal Revenue Service today quietly released a series of Obama-care “Health Care Tax Tips” warning Americans that they must obtain “qualifying” health insurance – as defined by the federal government – or face a “shared responsibility payment” when filing their tax returns in 2015. The term “shared responsibility payment” refers to the Obama-care individual mandate tax, one of at least seven tax hikes in the healthcare law that directly hit families making less than $250,000 per year.

Justina Pelletier Now Sent to Foster Care; Now has Legal Defense

Linda Pelletier fainted in the corridor outside the Boston Juvenile Court and was taken away on a stretcher to a local hospital. Her husband, Lou Pelletier, occasionally erupted into angry shouts. Reporters were restricted from the fourth floor of the Brooke Courthouse, where a hearing on Justina’s case was held, but could see the Pelletiers from a fifth-floor balcony across the courthouse atrium.  Department of Children and Families wants to place their teenage daughter in foster care on Boston’s North Shore, according to a minister who represents the family.

According to a report issued by the US Department of Health & Human Services, Children’s Bureau, THEIR OWN STATISTICS show that although the rate is decreasing,  ‘…In 2011 there were approximately 742,000 instances of confirmed child maltreatment‘, while in foster care.

One issue before the judge in today’s hearing was whether Lou Pelletier should be held in contempt of court for violating a gag order. The teen’s father has recently given media interviews in which he expressed frustration with the quality of care his daughter is getting while in DCF custody, care that he has asserted has been nearly fatal for her.

The Pelletiers’ primary attorney declined comment, citing the gag order.  Mathew Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel, a conservative nonprofit legal group, said he now represents the Pelletiers in their effort to end the gag order imposed by the judge. He said the DCF was given two days to tell the judge whether they oppose allowing Staver to enter the case.  ….story posted @ boston.com

One year after Justina Pelletier was locked into a psychiatric ward at Boston Children’s Hospital, doctors, lawyers, and family members are still struggling to answer the question—is this teenager really in pain?      WWW.FREEJUSTINA.com

Free Justina Pelletier NOW !

Unbelievable abduction

15 year old Justina went to Boston Children’s Hospital to be treated for the flu and 10 months later she is still in the hospital. Her parents were escorted out of the hospital because they disagreed with the diagnosis. You see Justina has Mitrochondria but Children’s Hospital says that her problem is psychological which is in direct opposition with her doctor from Tufts Medical Center. They refused to let her parents take her to any other hospital. In the meantime, they are using her as a guinea pig and filling her with drugs. Justina‘s health has now deteriorated. She cannot walk but must be in a wheelchair.

After breaking a gag order and speaking to Glenn and TheBlaze on Monday, the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF) filed for Lou Pelletier, the father of 15-year-old Justina Pelletier who is being held against her parents’ will, to be held in contempt of court, a family source told TheBlaze.
Here is a video of the story.

http://vimeo.com/81280882

“I will tell you that in a meeting I had this morning, I said: I don’t care if only four people read the story. I want this to be the lead story on TheBlaze from hereon out.” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Find every reason to talk about it. Turn over every stone. Show me everything that people can do and are doing. Put it in there. I don’t care if nobody’s reading the story. This is the most important story to me because you have a chance. You have the opportunity to save a woman’s life.”
