The Fuzz Factory Returns Tonight

Don’t call it a comeback! I’ve been here for years!

Holiday break has ended and school is back in session. That means the Fuzz Factory is back too. Tune in tonight for two hours of great rock & roll (www.scadatlantaradio.org).

Tonight’s compare/contrast feature is Deftones and Primus. Two heavy bands with a touch of the weird. Sounds good to me.

Sounds like a good way to start 2018.

 

Move On Up In 2018

Far too many people are struggling. Far too many of my friends, the people I care about most, are going through difficult times. I do what I can to help, but I’m always wishing I could do more.

I can be a negative person from time to time, but those are just moments. My overall outlook is quite positive. It likely due to my tenacious spirit. I keep going. One thing that keeps me going is music. I like finding meaning in the right song at the right time. That’s what this post is all about. I send this song out to everyone I know that needs a little help in any way. Happy New Year to you, especially to you. Stay strong in 2018. Stay uplifted as best you can. Don’t let the bastards get you down.

Hush now child, and don’t you cry
Your folks might understand you, by and by
Move on up, toward your destination
You may find from time to time
Complication

Bight your lip, and take a trip
Though there may be wet road ahead
And you cannot slip
So move on up for peace will find
Into the steeple of beautiful people
Where there’s only one kind

So hush now child, and don’t you cry
Your folks might understand you, by and by
Move on up, and keep on wishing
Remember your dream is your only scheme
So keep on pushing

Take nothing less – than the second best
Do not obey – you must keep your say
You can past the test
Just move on up, to a greater day
With just a little faith if you put your mind to it you can surely do it

Just move on up
Move on up
But move on up
Oh child, but just move on up
But move on up
Move on up
