“CRAZY QUESTIONS NO ONE ASKS” (Pt 2)

Back by popular demand,here, for your amusement(and possible head scratching and befuddlement) are some more “Crazy Questions No One Asks.” 1) I think most people would agree that “being hip” is not an easy status to achieve, or to define for that matter If this is true, then how can there be so many “hipsters?” […]

“THE NEW COLD WAR:RUSSIA IS THE ENEMY—-AGAIN?”

Seeing all the Anti Russia propaganda resurface in recent times has been a most unwelcome deja vu. To hear the mainstream media talk, you’d think that “Russia hacked our elections’,” invaded Syria and Ukraine” and is basically threatening us and all our allies all over the world. Well, I’m an American citizen, and I love […]

“A NOTE ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION & WHY IT NEEDS TO BE STOPPED”

Few issues have been more controversial in recent times than illegal immigration.Those who are opposed to it are often labelled as “racists” or “bigots”, but I would submit to you that if one really looks at this issue with emotion removed, one can see that it has been very damaging to the citizens of this […]

“ON GENDER FLUIDITY”

“PC JOKES” (Pt 1)

So, in the spirit of unity and ┬ábeing a non gender specific person who wants to accommodate my sense of humor to this new era of “Political Correctness”, […]

ON THE DANGER OF “THREE WORD SLOGANS”

Have you ever noticed┬áthat at many protests,many of the slogans that people chant contain 3 words (Or letters) or, contain 3 “sections”—–always with each word/letter accented? (Being a musician, I notice things like this.) A few examples: 1) “U—S—A! U—S—A!” 2) “BUILD—THAT—WALL! BUILD—THAT—-WALL! 3) “BLACK—LIVES—MATTER” 4) “NOT—MY—PRESIDENT” 5)”YES—WE—-CAN!” 6″THE PEOPLE—DIVIDED—CAN NEVER BE DEFEATED! THE PEOPLE—DIVIDED—CAN […]

“THEY LAY SOME MEEEEEAN PLUMMMMINNN” (A autobiographical story by Brian McCarthy)

Back in the year 1990, I was performing in a duo with a woman named Janet Foos. (She played Keyboards and sang, and I played Guitar and sang.) At one of our first gigs,we were playing in the Seattle/Tacoma area for a mostly white older crowd.(I don’t remember the venue, but I think it was […]
