Within the Liner Notes of my Mind.
This is an online journal about growing old with (good) people, looking dapper like Grandpa use to, my elders' wisdom and learning from my own mistakes, everyday madness, and momentary happiness. I'll share with you what's spinning on my turntables, what's cooking in my kitchen, and the happenings in my mind. Everyday is all about the sacrifice, the dreams, the torch and everything in between the contents of my mind.

Today In History We Honor Rubin “Hurricane” Carter
"Rubin Carter, professional boxer from New Jersey, was training for a shot at the world middleweight title, when he was wrongly convicted and imprisoned for a triple murder in 1964 for nearly two decades.
While incarcerated, Rubin published his autobiography, The 16th Round: From Number 1 Contender to Number 45472, to widespread acclaim. The story attracted the attention and support of many luminaries, including Muhammad Ali and Bob Dylan who wrote the song “Hurricane.”
A teenager from Broonklyn, NY name Lesra Martin read his autobiography and initiated a correspondence. Carter developed a relationship with Martin and his benefactors, Sam Chaiton, Terry Swinton, and Lisa Peters, who began to work with Carter’s legal defense team to seek a writ of habeas corpus from U.S. District Court Judge H. Lee Sarokin. In 1985, Sarokin handed down his decision to free Carter, stating that “The extensive record clearly demonstrates that [the] petitioners’ convictions were predicated upon an appeal to racism rather than reason, and concealment rather than disclosure.” via about.com

Pure Greatness: Jorge Ben - Africa Brasil.
Rightly listed by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the best Brazilian albums in history, and possibly of all time  (forgive me if my bias is showing), África Brasil is quite possibly the definitive album of Afro-Brasilian music legend Jorge Ben’s career. 
A heavy mixture of samba and funk, Jorge Ben so perfectly captures the iconic sound and essence associated with the Música Popular Brasileira post-Bossa Nova cultural movement in Brasil, and also pays tribute to the various African cultures (e.g. Mozambican, Congolese and Angolan) that have greatly influenced the fabric of Brasilian culture to this day.
Songs such as Ponta de Lança Africano (Umbabarauma), Cavaleiro do Cavalo Imaculado, África Brasil (Zumbi) and Xica da Silva all reference and/or pay tribute to Afro-Brasilian historical icons and Afro-Brasilian history.

We are the music makers
And we are the dreamers of dreams
Wandering by lone sea-breakers
And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.

                          - Arthur O’Shaughnessy


I want to grow old here
We are the music makers
And we are the dreamers of dreams
Wandering by lone sea-breakers
And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.
