And the Winner is…MK Ultra Programming

Current times reveal that many things are covertly and overtly affecting us.  From chemtrails to television programs to music to marketing, psychological rape is at an all-time high.

Let’s start with 2017 Academy Awards blooper for ‘Best Picture’.  Humans make mistakes.  When tons of money, lobbyists and people of power are involved, we become especially careful. ‘La La Land’ wins. Two minutes later, the movie “Moonlight” wins.  I must say it was a very good film.  The writing, directing, cinematography, acting and story lines were rich and delivered well.  Yet, the Oscar wins signifies the lack of growth in Hollywood’s stance within a white supremacist system.  The story was about survival under extenuating challenges, first and foremost. A homosexual relationship between two Black teen males was secondary, maybe even tertiary. The mother was a prolific substance abuser. Her son’s mentor (who also was her main drug supplier) was a drug dealer. Many vile and seething circumstances prevailed itself, during the storytelling process of the film. The “rewarding” of the movie, Moonlight, was granted because it fuels the white supremacist system’s engine.  The reinforcement of negative imagery of Black people becomes a highly acclaimed “masterpiece of film”. Guess what?! That is an example of MK Ultra Programming.

For those that are unfamiliar, MK Ultra, sometimes referred to as the CIA’s mind control program – is the code name given to a program of experiments on human subjects, at times illegal, designed and undertaken by the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). As noted by US Supreme Court, MK Ultra was concerned with “the research and development of chemical, biological, and radiological materials capable of employment in clandestine operations to control human behavior.” (Wikipedia.org)  Whether one is taken into secret chambers or listen to commercial radio, it holds the same degree of torturous tactics to gain control of one’s mind and soul.

Now, let’s get to latest “hot beef”….Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj.  First and last of all, why should we care?  True adults handle their business privately. But, the general public is addicted to drama in entertainment.  Although I don’t know the details, I am certain that is a marketing strategy to revive Remy Ma’s career and make Nicki Minaj “relevant” again. This is child’s play.  Grown people behaving like 8th graders.  Why are these talented people allowing the thoroughly wicked Jew-run entertainment play them completely out?! In particular, so-called Blacks are allowing foul and stupid behaviours to validate their existence.  I am sure that all of the strong, resilient, proud, highly intelligent, sharp, dedicated Black American ancestors that faced multilevel discrimination are extremely proud of today’s prevalent idiocy.  Public “beefs” between fully grown celebrities and artistes are poor in taste and execution….several steps backward for civil rights movement of Black Americans.

People….many of us are casualties in technological warfare on humanity.  Learn to identify triggers, tactics, methods and manifestations of programming to dumb us down and decrease vigilance in standing for what is best.

The Funeral of Etaniel

Festive

Celebrating all he IS

Orange Blue Black

Soca music blaring

Afro-House compelling

Yes…letting the tears flow

But…mix in the cartwheels

Coupé Décalé, smiles and pleasantries

 

For the spirit has retired

Soul endured the fire

Because fires don’t consume dragons

Delectable brown body laid to rest

Weary eyes of trials by fire

Positively endless

Negatively temporal

Balance meets the area of grey

Quick Plugs for the History Books

Greetings Great Folks!

In America, February is observed as ‘Black History Month’.  My meditation and works move towards creating a legacy for following generations to glean.  Most of the masters in the Arts were not appreciated, during their time of creativity on planet Earth.  Many times I believe/feel as if I am underappreciated on a larger scale.  I do have a solid, core of supporters/admirers of my creative works.  I am quite grateful for this.

E as Poetlove Water will go down in the ‘Black Ourstory’ books.  For those in the Brooklyn, NY, you will have an opportunity to witness a monumental event before your glory-seeking eyes.  On Saturday, 21 February from 3-5 PM, ‘My Relation to the Sun’ Book Release and Party’ will commence.  Rebekah Frimpong, Brooklyn-based poet/filmmaker/artiste, will be celebrating her 1st published book release.  E as Poetlove Water is one of the featured poets for the evening.  A few pieces from the forthcoming book, The Cells of the Tissue That Should Feel, will be presented.  Additionally, E as Poetlove Water’s original jewelry will be available for admiration/purchase.

The event will be held at Joloff Restaurant, 1168 Bedford Avenue, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, NY. For more information, please contact E at me@easpoetlovewater.com.  Hope to see your face and feel your presences!!!

Moving Forward by Looking Back (The Sankofa Effect)

Art is life. Very necessary to existence of an artiste. Some of us enter this world through the maternal canal knowing the purpose for the Earthly visit. Others take a long while, maybe never realizing the meaning of their life. Fortunately, we possess a soul connected to willpower that provides the push to see things manifest.

There has been a strong correlation between social ills and great artistry. These external difficulties have made for internal genius output.  I wrote a song called “Journey Through the Present” that speaks on the aforementioned subject-matter.  Life is serious.  Life is fun.  Life is poignant.  Life is breezy.

There are two vintage video clips that have changed my life.  First is a live performance of Billie Holiday singing “Strange Fruit”. Her eyes, facial contortions, emotional pauses and soulful delivery equates to true artistic expression.  Second is a live performance of John Coltrane and his band performing “Naima”.  The pianist (McCoy Tyner) and the saxophonist (John Coltrane) performed in an otherworldly space in time.

In addition to this stellar performances, it is always great to hear/read a backstory to an artiste who is considered the master of their craft.  For example, I have always loved skillful and creative vocals.  This is how I KNOW that Jazz Vocalist will be studied in many schools posthumously.  The world is not ready for the gift she possesses.  Many considered the Late Luciano Pavarotti as the best Tenor that ever performed.  Operatic singing is quite difficult and highly technical.  The minimal training I’ve had in Classical Voice helped me to realize the importance of knowing what you are doing without hurting yourself (your vocal chords).  I thought Luciano was very good, until I heard Tenors from the 1920’s-1970’s.  Those guys sang from the bottom of their diaphragms WITHOUT fancy technology.  The Tenor that inspired Pavarotti was the Late Great Jussi Bjorling.  This guy’s phrasing, breath control, voice, range and focus was/is untouchable.  He is the first and only Tenor that I have heard perform “Nessun Dorma” without a slide into the highest belted note of the aria (“….vincero, vincero”).  Take a listen!

I strongly believe there is a fight to prove who you are, no matter the path or expression thereof.  The legendary artistes mentioned in this blog are great in their own rights.  They have persevered many obstacles to reach the point of greatness.  Let us do the same!!!

The Calls of the Drums

In many minds and many cultures, the drum is considered “the heartbeat”.  The bass is considered “the pulse”.  Drumming is innate to Afrakan and Indigenous peoples worldwide.  The drum is the instrument and conduit to the Spirit World.  The world that some beings can see in clear view.  Others, not so much.  The beats of the drum affords all to benefit from the entrance (or re-entrance) into the spirit realm.  Taking a journey into many segments of the Cosmos for refreshment, reverence, praise, honor, communications, release.  Whether it is a Voudun ceremony in Benin/Togo, Eskista dance in Ethiopia, Zulu ceremony in South Africa, Santeria in Cuba or Christian worship service at Black/African Pentecostal churches in the USA, we have an inherent need to express our spiritual heritage through dance/movement.
