    Wording Freedom

    The following words are taken from SPACEDOG RADIO interview in Seattle, Washington, celebrating my new album, SONGS, NAKED - THE LOST SONGS. I singled out this portion of the interview, since I rarely ever comment publically on such issues, but I was suddently given the spot and moment to do so, and I just used it. As a citizen of this world, and as an artist of words and music, I care deeply about the WORDING of freedom, as an extention of critical thinking and its freedom of expression. Usually I take the liberties in my song writing, and in this Hebrew blog only. But some times one has to scream louder and less poetically than that. The full interview can be heard on souncloud, but here is just the quirky bit:

     

    I probably should say something about peace, and the massacre in Syria, and the mess in Egypt, and the violent collapse of what was falsely perceived as the Arab Spring. But I'm not sure it's my place or THE place to say anything about it. So please feel free to edit this part out. I want to say something, and it's actually related to some core songs in this new album, like REEDOM NEVER COMES FOR FREE and TRIPPING FREE which has this line that goes:


    DREAMERS LOSE THEIR MIND FOREVER SUNLESS

    THEY START AS SAINTS, BUT END UP BEING HEARTLESS.

     

    I think the world, too generally speaking of course, is starting to lose its ability to think freely and independently and critically, under the totalitarian regime of the politically correct culture, and the radical multi-culturalism, which are too often hypocritically used and abused, under some sort of self righteous good doing. I mean, catching a situation by its superficial  sense or superficial, seeming state of affairs, rather than by the meaning and essence and deeper reality of it, the world is starting to lose it's sense of humour, it's spark of creativity, it's ability to say anything about anything, and ultimately it seem the world is practically  losing its mind. Thus, under this crippling regime, sometimes evil gets to thrive and goodness gets to be killed or threatened for hurting someone's feelings. And this contorted state of affairs seriously scares me. 'Cause it can take us all back to the age of darkness. And so I've become an avid fan of the critical free thinkers of the world, in all fields, such as Woody Allan, Tim Minchin, Jon Stewart, Lois Ck, Ricky Gervais, and Sarah Silverman, David E Kelly, Jonathan Kats, Larry David, Stephen Frys, The SouthPark creators,  and the late Christopher Hitchens, and there are plenty more. Again, since you've asked, I just want to drop these names of writers & contrarians & artists & comedians that I like anyway, and hail these kind of free voices. Because I do seriously  think they  make this world, or at least MY world,  a better, funnier, place.
