Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilisations, to boldly go where no man has gone before. Have you ever been to neuroleptic ladyland? Defiant Donald Trump confirms US will recognise Jerusalem as capital of Israel. Jerusalem, a city mentioned in 3 holy books: the Torah, the Bible and the Quran. How come nobody agreed to make Jerusalem a city open on the Middle East world? I guess that move from Trump is just a way to show Israelis that the USA cares about the situation. I’m sure America got their own troubles and they are planning a major overhaul of their relationship with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Some will say this is a swan song, a metaphorical phrase for a final gesture, effort, or performance given just before death or retirement. Now, the song of the day about communication and potential problems arising from its breakdown.

Such an ego, you get the picture! We do not count ourselves among you, narcissistic perverts who are the fool of World War 2 and the 1970s. Examining the superb will be key and it will open the door to that love shack in the forest.

Please Mr Postman, the Song

Californication is the seventh studio album by American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers. It was released on June 8, 1999, on Warner Bros. Records and was produced by Rick Rubin. Californication marked the return of John Frusciante, who had previously appeared on Mother’s Milk and Blood Sugar Sex Magik, to replace Dave Navarro as the band’s guitarist. Frusciante’s return was credited with changing the band’s sound altogether, producing a notable shift in style from the music recorded with Navarro. The album’s subject material incorporated various sexual innuendos commonly associated with the band, but also contained more varied themes than previous outings, including lust, death, contemplations of suicide, California, drugs, globalization, and travel. Californication is the Chili Peppers’ most commercially successful studio release internationally, with over 15 million copies sold worldwide, and more than 6 million in the United States alone.

As of 2002, the album had sold over 4 million copies in Europe. The record marked a significant change in style for the band: Rolling Stone’s Greg Tate noted that “while all previous Chili Peppers projects have been highly spirited, Californication dares to be spiritual and epiphanic”. Another critic, Billboard’s Paul Verna, mentioned that the album brought out “the group’s softer, melodic side,” as opposed to their previous six albums. In 1984, the Red Hot Chili Peppers started off as a “funk-punk band, driven by Kiedis’s exuberant rapping and Flea’s manic slap-bass” (Sanneh, 2002). Guitarist John Frusciante left the band in the middle of a 1992 tour that promoted their critically acclaimed album Blood Sugar Sex Magik. In the years following his departure from the Chili Peppers, Frusciante had developed a vicious addiction to both heroin and cocaine that left him in poverty and near death. Friends convinced him to enter drug rehabilitation in January 1998.

This album marked the reunion of the band that produced “Blood Sugar Sex Magik”. You can feel the Red Hot Chili Peppers maturing in their interests, and we are following them. Sexual innuendos but also lust, death, contemplations of suicide, California, drugs, globalization, and travel. Unspoken words were understood! Themes include lust, death, contemplations of suicide, California, drugs, globalization, and travel.

In April 1998, following Frusciante’s three-month completion, Flea visited his former band-mate and openly invited him to re-join the band, an invitation Frusciante readily accepted. Within the week, and for the first time in six years, the foursome gathered to play and jump-started the newly reunited Red Hot Chili Peppers. There was a transition from the group’s “funk-punk” selves into a more “mellow-progressive rock act” for Californication. Much of the album was written in the band members’ homes in the summer of 1998. Kiedis and Frusciante often spent days together discussing song creation, guitar riffs and lyrical content. Bass and percussion aspects of the record were constructed through jam sessions and the individual work of Flea and Smith.

Most of the material and lyrics throughout the songs in the album came from the “personal and professional turmoil” that different members of the band went through/were currently going through at the time. This resulted in the “sensitive approach that one might not expect from a band whose followers are skate-punks and fraternity boys”. Anthony Kiedis’s main point behind this album was to “tell tales of wondering souls who’ve lost their way searching for the American dream in California”. About “Purple Stain”: the lyrics to this song contain vague pop culture references. I like this song because of a simple verse: “unspoken words were understood”. When it comes to communication, what’s important is what you don’t say. Of course, I also like the fact he makes a link with success and your neighbourhood.

Back to Bedlam, aka Almeria

I swear I don’t have a gun, so come as you are. Humanity is lost in 1945, 1973 or 1979. Stupid ingrate people trying to explain the subject of fights. One thing we can be sure of is that rest and digest will be complicated, like a relationship on Facebook.

Who needs Trump when you got Netanyahu? And who needs peace when you got war? And who needs disinformation when you got Allosaurus Fragilis? Allosaurus is a genus of large theropod dinosaur that lived 155 to 150 million years ago during the late Jurassic period (Kimmeridgian to early Tithonian). The name “Allosaurus” means “different lizard”. We always talk about the peace process or how to prevent wars, but everybody forgot about the Cretaceous–Tertiary (K–T) extinction, a mass extinction of some three-quarters of the plant and animal species on Earth that occurred over a geologically short period of time, approximately 66 million years ago.

Who needs the Middle East when you got dinosaurs? Israel suffers from island gigantism, surrounded by mean Arabs that are their cousins. Sadly, in Lebanon, crazy old neighbours have been watching us. And now, the only thing we watch is music. Where did we sleep last night exactly? I slept in a lake of fire, voices still calling across the years. Crazy old neighbour said I was crazy and old. And then, he put a hand in his underpants and went back watching a show like The Bold and the Beautiful or playing Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six on a giant screen. No doubt we could put humanity to a better use: 1-hour daily of astronomy for 7.6 billion people.

These emotions are holding us back, that’s why we have to make sure to remain in the acceptable zone. People don’t know about this but red alert means nothing until you hit purple alert: a room full of mirrors and an angry star.

Trump was elected to do something but, by now, he should have realised what not to do! Jerusalem was cited in 3 holy books then it seems fair that this city should be open to Christians, Muslims and Jews. And then, maybe we can open a coffee shop there and people would meet and get to know each other better. Suddenly, they don’t want to fight anymore and start to dance like Iggy Pop. At some point, I was wondering if I should form a band with a Muslim and a Jew. We would call the band: the Near Peace Experience. Your life passes before your eyes and you realise how little it needs to accomplish a glorious thing. If it’s not a complicated task, how come we delay it? All these emotions are preventing us to do it: that’s alright, I still have my guitar! Bang, bang! Bibi shot us down. I was 56 and he was 65 and we were in charge. Let’s remember how fragile we are, for all those born beneath an angry star.

Cruel winter leaving me on my own. Who needs action when you got words? Famous last words of the influence that is pissing me off was: “There must be something we can do!”

You mean peace in the Middle East? Jerusalem, city of Judaism, Christianity and Islam? Everybody says I don’t want to fight that way anymore… What did you expect? 4 years from now, Trump will build a library in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and it will be filled with Playboy, Penthouse and other dirty magazine. A schoolboy’s dream. Of course, the polar bear and the ozone layer should not be neglected. This is bold as love, queen jealousy (a clever mix of sadness, anger, frustration and disgust) is lurking and we will eventually have a knee in the river of nightmares. This is bad news for Israel because everybody knows that the US is sick and tired of standing back. From Gagarin’s point of view, space is the final frontier. And Donald Trump is the new frontier: who is in charge of keeping score and who will display it?

I got to ride that lonesome train; my heart is heavy and constantly changing. As if all was fair in love, people started to have expectations about you and me. Best you can do is stay on the safe side of love.

This mission of mercy, giving the news a musical insight, is very demanding. Use your allusions! Everybody knows that hawkish Netanyahu wants to make Eretz Israel and they decided to manipulate their US ally. Come, baby come, baby baby, come, come! As far as I’m concerned, I’ll agree with anyone who is able to send me on holiday. I’m not ashamed to stand by the Jews if I can get a fucking week of rest! Otherwise, I’ll have to dig into my record collection and hit one or two songs: unspoken words were understood! Knock on wood because we all live in Bollywood, with Dracula and Robin Hood. To me, the new frontier would be to prevent that kind of incident. The driver made a big, big accident on the road to heaven. There were sharks everywhere and he thought God was dead. Consider this: if the hit of the century can bring you to your knees, can America’s recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel also bring you to your knees?

To finger paint is not a sin
I put my middle finger in
Your monthly blood is what I win
I’m in your house now let me spin

Python power straight from Monty
Celluloid loves got a John Frusciante
Spread your head and spread the blanket
She’s too free and I’m the patient

Black and white a red and blue
Things that look good on you
And if I scream don’t let me go
A purple stain I know

Knock on wood we all stay good
‘Cause we all live in Hollywood
With Dracula and Darla Hood
Unspoken words were understood

Up to my ass in alligators
Let’s get it on with the alligator haters
Did what you did did what you said
What’s the point yo what’s the spread

Black and white a red and blue
Things that look good on you
And if I scream don’t let me go
A purple stain I know
And if I call for you to stay
Come hit the funk on your way
It’s way out there but I don’t care
‘Cause this is where I go

Knock on wood we all stay good
‘Cause we all live in Hollywood
With Dracula and Darla Hood
Unspoken words were understood

It’s way out there but I don’t care
‘Cause this is what I want to wear

Knock on wood we all stay good
‘Cause we all live in Hollywood

To finger paint is not a sin
I put my middle finger in
Your monthly blood is what I win
I’m in your house now let me spin

Feather light but you can’t a move this
Farley is an angel and I can prove this
Purple is a stain upon my pillow
Let’s sleep weeping willow

Black and white a red and blue
Things that look good on you
And if I scream don’t let me go
A purple stain I know
And if I call for you to stay
Come hit the funk on your way
It’s way out there but I don’t care
‘Cause this is where I go

Knock on wood we all stay good
‘Cause we all live in Hollywood
With Dracula and Darla Hood
Unspoken words were understood

It’s way out there but I don’t care
‘Cause this is what I want to wear

I've been listening to music for more than 20 years, trying to get a message in each of the 5000 songs I listened to. I'm interested in all topics (sports, art, science, philosophy, health, travel). I connect the dots with contemporary music. This blog will be the result of more than 20 years of work on humanity (ripples in the curvature of spacetime).
