George Harrison - “Bangla Desh”

Recorded: 4 & 5 July 1971; released 28 July 1971

“The first-ever rock charity single predated ‘We Are The World’ and ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ by fourteen years […].

[Jim Horn recalled] ‘George was very, very gracious, very businesslike, and wanted to get all this stuff done properly. He asked me if I was aware of what was going on over there [in Bangladesh] and explained the whole story to me about Bangladesh and Ravi his friend. It was a real turning point for me, because we were doing something for a cause through one of the Beatles.’

Klaus Voormann also noted a different atmosphere: ‘From the moment people knew that whatever we did for Bangladesh was for nothing [unpaid], there was a different attitude, because the people didn’t feel they were there to earn money. They were there to have fun an do something good for a good cause.’” - While My Guitar Gently Weeps: The Music of George Harrison by Simon Leng

Lena Horne with her dresser on the set of Stormy Weather  (Andrew L. Stone, 1943), one of only 2 films in the 1930′s and 40′s in which Horne had a lead role. Otherwise, though under contract to MGM, she was cast in musical short subjects or, when part of a big MGM musical, she was in isolated numbers that could be easily edited out for films shown in the segregated South. 


I would like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all my followers who are in the US and the outlying US areas and to all celebrating worldwide. To my followers elsewhere I wish you many blessings today and peace and love as well. Below is my favorite quote from George, I feel it’s appropriate for this day of celebration. Be Here Now, enjoy life and be grateful for the experiences you have because life is a very precarious thing.

“It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one.”    - George

I think the reason why I’m so in love with Bull is because I find him a fascinating study of dichotomy. He’s a spy for the qunari and he’s a loud, brash, unforgiving sort of gent. He’s strong and bold but also loves nugs and pink. He’s confident and secure in his sexuality and person, but his sexuality revolves around giving others pleasure - which gives him pleasure in return. He prefers the simple, direct approach but he’s also very smart and good at strategy (he holds his own against Solas in mental chess.

He’s so complex but it masquerades as simplicity, and my writer’s fingers just want to jump into his character and find his motivations because his entire nature is so full of chaos and contradictions - but it still works. There’s only one fault I’ve ever found with Bull and that was that one bit of dialogue between him and Cole but the rest of him is accepting, comfortable in his skin and his sexuality and genuinely fun, if a little crude. Underneath it all, though, is this other layer, this deeper layer where he is a spy and is spying on the Inq and also using the Chargers as a cover to make people in Thedas more willing to work with him so he can study their political workings. 

And it’s that last bit that fascinates me, and it’s part that you only find out if you actually side with the qunari in Bull’s mission, because afterwards he tells the Inq that his relationship with the Chargers was effectively a lie. Now, I don’t think that’s as true as Bull wants it to be, but I think he definitely wants it to be the truth.

N is for Nosebleed

You feel equal parts guilty for violating the sanctity of your boyfriend’s office and excited at how much of a kick you and Jim are going to get out of pulling a mostly-harmless prank on your CMO. The two of you are in cahoots and have been playing practical jokes on the whole crew for days and now it’s finally Leonard’s turn to get pranked.

You hover by the door, your ear pressed to the pane, listening for any incoming footsteps as Jim places an air horn under the seat of the doctor’s chair, securing carefully into place and making sure it’s positioned properly so that it goes off when Leonard’s weight on the chair causes it to sink a fraction.

Once Jim gives you the okay, you rush away from the door and head for the small closet at the side of the office.  You open the door, grinning like a lunatic, and step inside, shifting over to leave just enough room for Jim.  He steps in beside you and you close the door – it’s close quarters but it’ll all be worth it when you two get to see the look on Leonard’s face when he sits down.

On this day in music history: May 22, 1975 - “Adventures In Paradise”, the third album by Minnie Riperton is released. Produced by Stewart Levine, Minnie Riperton and Richard Rudolph, it is recorded at Wally Heider 3 Studios in Los Angeles, CA from January - March 1975. Just as she is experiencing the breakthrough success of her second album “Perfect Angel” and the single “Lovin’ You” headed toward number one, Minnie Riperton begins working on the follow up album. With Stevie Wonder being pre-occupied with work on his magnum opus “Songs In The Key Of Life”, he is not able to co-produce with Riperton and her husband, musician Richard Rudolph. Instead, they work with Crusaders producer Stewart Levine on the new project. In between, Minnie meets singer and songwriter Leon Ware while both are working on Quincy Jones’ “Mellow Madness” album. Hitting it off immediately, Ware, Riperton and Rudolph write three songs together for Minnie’s new album. Co-producer Levine assembles an outstanding team of first call musicians to play on the sessions including Crusaders keyboardist Joe Sample, saxophonist Tom Scott, Jim Gordon (drums), Dean Parks, Larry Carlton (guitar), Jim Horn (saxophone), and Dorothy Ashby (harp). Released right on the heels of “Perfect Angel”, the jazzy, soulful, and sensual album becomes a favorite of Riperton’s fans, though it is less commercially successful than its predecessor. It spins off two singles including the classic “Inside My Love” (#26 R&B, #76 Pop), which meets with resistance from numerous radio stations feeling that it is “too suggestive” for daytime radio play. “Paradise” becomes a cult classic and highly sought after album in later years when A Tribe Called Quest samples the track “Baby This Love I Have” as the basis of their iconic single “Check The Rhime” in 1991. Minnie’s original version of “Inside My Love” is featured on the soundtrack to Quentin Tarantino’s film “Jackie Brown” in 1997, while R&B singer Chante Moore covers the song for the “New York Undercover” soundtrack two years earlier in 1995. R&B vocalist Trina Broussard also covers “Inside” for the “Love Jones” soundtrack in 1997. Timbaland also samples “Baby This Love” for Aaliyah’s song “Heartbroken” in 1996. Shortly after the album is released, a TV spot recreating the cover shot is filmed. Using a different lion than the one used previously, it jumps on Riperton, but she is unhurt in the incident. “Adventures In Paradise” peaks at number five on the Billboard R&B album chart, and number eighteen on the Top 200.

There was a numbness to him. Jim stared dully at the asphalt under his feet. This was a road… why was he standing on the road?

The voice in his head was telling him this is where he needed to be, but there was something strange about it. Stay there Jim….

A horn blared and Jim looked up, blinking slowly. A truck. It was coming towards him and Jim tried to move. His muscles weren’t obeying him. His mind a hazy fog that said… this is okay…. Stay here Jim… goodbye Jim.

Goodbye Jim? That didn’t sound right. He stared down the truck. It was thundering closer, yet he couldn’t move. Was this even real? Or another nightmare in which his life dangled so precariously….


Bullock’s voice tore through his thoughts. There was panic and fear in it. Why was his old partner afraid? He shouldn’t be afraid…. Jim turned his attention towards the source, seeing Harvey glancing between him and the oncoming vehicle before running at him.

Why was he- OH!

Harvey’s frame hit Jim, throwing them both out of the pathway of the truck as it swerved to avoid them. The blonde couldn’t quite breathe, having the air knocked out of his lungs from landing so hard. But he was alive and his body was obeying him again. The eerie voice in his mind had faded, replaced with a far more real one.

“What the hell is happening with you?! You got a death wish?” Harvey shook him by the shoulders and suddenly Jim shuddered.

“I… I don’t know. It’s like he’s in my head still… telling me what to do Harv…. I can’t stop it.” Jim’s voice broke. He was tired. This fight exhausted him and he had little energy in reserve to begin with.

Pity came over Harvey and Jim was tugged into his arms. “It’ll be okay Jim… we’ll figure this out. You and I… just like old times.”


This is so so powerful!  This is Jenny Horne, a Republican from Charleston and a descendant of Jefferson Davis.  Hear her impassioned speech for the removal of the Virginia/Tennessee Confederate Battle flag from the South Carolina Statehouse.  

Yeah but what if Jim buys an air horn and uses it all the time whenever he has anything to say and sherlock isn’t listening like he’s in the middle of going on about something on the Television and then Jim just pulls out an air horn and scares the crap out of Sherlock and says what he has to say and then just acts as if it never happens and goes back to casually reading whatever he’s reading and Sherlock just sits there like what happened Jim why did you do that
