Michael Jackson WBSS Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’ Victory Tour Live In Kansas 1984 High Definition

“Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” is a song by American songwriter and recording artist Michael Jackson. “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” was released on May 8, 1983, by Epic Records as the fourth single from Jackson’s sixth studio album Thriller in 1982. The song was written by Jackson and produced by Jackson and Quincy Jones. The song’s lyrics pertain to strangers spreading rumors to begin or start an argument just for no reason. Musically, “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” has a cross-cultural disco theme, similar to Jackson’s material from his previous album Off the Wall in 1979. The song’s rhythm arrangement consists of interweaving drum-machine patterns, while the horn arrangement is brassy and precise. “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” has been covered and sampled by multiple recording artists since its release. Aside from Thriller, “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” appears on multiple compilation and greatest hits albums by Jackson.

“Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” was generally well received by contemporary music critics. The song was also commercially successful, charting within the top twenty and top thirty in multiple countries. The song became Jackson’s fifth consecutive top ten single in the United States on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking within the top ten at number five. The song re-entered charts in 2008 after the release of Thriller 25. Following Jackson’s death in June 2009, the song re-entered music charts worldwide, mainly due to digital download sales. Unlike previous singles from Thriller, “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” did not have a music video to accompany it, but was performed by Jackson on world concert tours, as both a member of The Jacksons and as a solo artist.

As part of the release of Thriller 25, a remix of “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'”, entitled “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’ 2008”, was recorded with Akon, and released as the second single from the album. The song was commercially successful, mainly charting within the top ten in six countries, as well as the top twenty in several territories worldwide. The song was more successful internationally than in the United States, having peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 at number eighty-one, which was the song’s lowest charting position.

Snoop Dogg – Ain’t No Fun – (feat. Nate Dogg, Kurupt & Warren G)

May 31st, 2010 25 comments

Snoop Dogg: Ain’t No Fun (If the Homies Can’t Have None)
Feat: Nate Dogg, Kurupt & Warren G
Song Producer: Dr. Dre
Album: “Doggystyle”
Recorded: 1992-1993
Date of Release: 11/23/1993
Record Label: Death Row/Interscope/Atlantic
Album Producers: Suge Knight (Executive); Dr. Dre; Daz Dillenger; Emanuel “Porkchop” Dean; Warren G
Sub-genre: Gangsta/Hardcore/G-Funk (West Coast)
**Snoop Dogg came to attention of the music industry in 1992, through his vocal contributions on Dre’s The Chronic. That album is considered to have “transformed the entire sound of West Coast rap” by its development of what later became known as the “G-funk” sound. The Chronic expanded gangsta rap with profanity, violent lyrics, basic beats, anti-authoritarian lyrics and multi-layered samples taken from 1970’s P-Funk records. Snoop Dogg contributed vocals to Dre’s solo single, “Deep Cover”, which lead to a high degree of anticipation amongst hip hop for the release of his own solo album.
-Doggystyle and The Chronic are associated with each other mainly because each prominently featured Snoop Dogg and because both contain G-funk style production from Dr. Dre. The two releases are linked by the high number of vocal contributions from Death Row Records artists, including Tha Dogg Pound, RBX, The Lady of Rage, while both contain a high density misogynistic lyrics and profanity in their lyrics. In addition, the two albums are each viewed by critics as early “G-funk classics”, and have been described as “joined at the hip”.
-Gangsta rap has been criticized for its extreme lyrics, which are often accused of glamorizing gang violence and black-on-black crime. The Gangsta rappers responded that they were simply describing the realities of life in places such as Compton, California, and Long Beach, California. Describing Doggystyle in 1993, Snoop Dogg likewise points to the album’s realism, and the extent to which it is based on his personal experience. He said, “I can’t rap about something I don’t know. You’ll never hear me rapping about no bachelor’s degree. It’s only what I know and that’s that street life. It’s all everyday life, reality.” Explaining his intentions, Snoop Dogg claims he feels he is a role model to many young black men, and that his songs are designed to relate to their concerns. “For little kids growing up in the ghettos,” he said, “it’s easy to get into the wrong types of things, especially gangbanging and selling drugs. I’ve seen what that was like, and I don’t glorify it, but I don’t preach. I bring it to them rather than have them go find out about it for themselves.” He further explained the “dream” that he would pursue after making the album: “I’m going to try to eliminate the gang violence. I’ll be on a mission for peace. I know I have a lot of power. I know if I say, ‘Don’t kill,’ niggas won’t kill”.**

WFLX – Century Village Elevator Death

May 31st, 2010 1 comment

Monday, May 11, 2009

A worker has been crushed to death by an elevator at the West Palm Beach Century Village, authorities said.

About 10:20 this morning, 39-year-old Jason William Moyer, of West Palm Beach, was killed as he repaired an elevator at the Dover B unit of the complex, near Okeechobee Boulevard and Florida’s Turnpike, Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue Capt. Don DeLucia said.

The elevator came down on Moyer while he was in the shaft, deputy Eric Davis, a spokesman for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office, said this morning. He said Moyer was dead at the scene.

Marilyn Ducati, who lives on the second floor of the four-story building said she didn’t hear anything at the time of the accident and had not known about it.

An investigator for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration arrived about 2 p.m. from OSHA’s area office in Fort Lauderdale, area director Darlene Fossum said.

Moyer was employed by Xpert Elevator Services in Loxahatchee. Calls to the company’s office and a cell phone weren’t immediately returned.

OSHA records do not show any agency action or investigations of the company. Corporate records show it was incorporated in May 2007.

According to a state Department of Business and Professional Regulation report, the elevator that fell failed a private inspection on Feb. 25, 2008. During a follow-up review, the state agency cited the owner of the elevator for not having a current license and told the owners that they must show proof of a current inspection.

How should I start a speech that retells an act of treachery so heinous, it must never be forgotten?

May 31st, 2010 4 comments

The Tlatelolco massacre took place on the night of October 2, 1968, in the Plaza de las Tres Culturas in Tlatelolco, Mexico City.

The death toll remains uncertain: some estimates place the number of deaths in the thousands, but most sources report 200-300 deaths. Many more were wounded, along with several thousand arrests.

The massacre was preceded by months of political unrest in the Mexican capital, echoing student demonstrations and riots all over the world during 1968. The Mexican students wanted to exploit the attention focused on Mexico City for the 1968 Olympic Games. Mexican President Gustavo Díaz Ordaz, however, was determined to stop the demonstrations and, in September, he ordered the army to occupy the campus of the National Autonomous University of Mexico, the largest university in Latin America. Students were beaten and arrested indiscriminately.

Student demonstrators were not deterred, however. The demonstrations grew in size, until, on October 2, after student strikes lasting nine weeks, 15,000 students from various universities marched through the streets of Mexico City, carrying red carnations to protest the army’s occupation of the university campus. By nightfall, 5,000 students and workers, many of them with spouses and children, had congregated in the Plaza de las Tres Culturas in Tlatelolco.

The massacre began at sunset when army and police forces — equipped with armored cars and tanks — surrounded the square and began firing live rounds into the crowd, hitting not only the protestors, but also other people who were present for reasons unrelated to the demonstration. Demonstrators and passersby alike, including children, were caught in the fire, and soon, mounds of bodies lay on the ground.

The killing continued through the night, with soldiers carrying out mopping-up operations on a house-to-house basis in the apartment buildings adjacent to the square. Witnesses to the event claim that the bodies were later removed in garbage trucks.

The official government explanation of the incident was that armed provocateurs among the demonstrators, stationed in buildings overlooking the crowd, had begun the firefight. Suddenly finding themselves sniper targets, the security forces had simply returned fire in self-defense.

In October 1997, the Mexican congress established a committee to investigate the Tlatelolco massacre. The committee interviewed many political players involved in the massacre, including Luis Echeverría Álvarez, a former president of Mexico who was Díaz Ordaz’s minister of the interior at the time of the massacre. Echeverría ADMITTED THAT THE STUDENTS HAD BEEN UNARMED, and also suggested that the military action was planned in advance, as a means to destroy the student movement.

In October 2003, the role of the US government in the massacre came to light when the National Security Archive at George Washington University published a series of records from the CIA, the Pentagon, the State Department, the FBI, and the White House released in response to the Freedom of Information Act.

The documents detail:

* that in response to Mexican government concerns over the security of the Olympic Games the Pentagon sent military radios, weapons, ammunition and riot control training material to Mexico before and during the crisis.

* that the CIA station in Mexico City produced almost daily reports tracking developments WITHIN the university community and the Mexican government from July to October. Six days before the confrontation at Tlatelolco, both Echeverría and head of Federal Security (DFS) Fernando Gutiérrez Barrios told the CIA that "the situation will be under complete control very shortly."

* that the Díaz Ordaz government "arranged" to have student leader Socrates Campos Lemus accuse dissident PRI politicians such as Carlos Madrazo of funding and orchestrating the student movement.

The events of that horrific day demonstrated the government’s brutal response to students, workers, campesinos and families who dared to participate in a DEMOCRATIC SOCIAL MOVEMENT. Hundreds were injured, crippled, murdered and disappeared, leaving behind only blood stained clothing, scattered shoes, and blood in the streets. Even today, the Mexican Government has refused to release political prisoners arrested for their involvement in these incidents.

This October 2nd marks the 40th anniversary of the Tlatelolco Massacre, an event that must not be forgotten, as we acknowledge the continuation of HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS IN MEXICO: constant assassinations, detentions, and torturing of political prisoners.

I’m writing the speech to be held at a vigil on the anniversary of the massacre, where I will say it aloud in English, then again in Spanish. My second language is Spanish, so I have no problems with the translations, just the actual beginning.

in case anyone was wondering here’s the info:


Where: Mexican Co

Where: Mexican Consulate, 2nd and Linberg in front of hospital, McAllen, TX

You could start with a poignant quote such as the one below

George Santayana:
Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

your essay next

In your conclusion you could relate the opening quote and just list some of atrocious human rights violations around the world eg Tiananmen Square etc etc and make some comment about how we haven’t really learned from history- or
you could ask what is it that we can learn from this…and that it must never be allowed to be repeated.

Free genealogy information?

Where can I find Texas birth records from 1900-present (targeting the 70s on, really) for free online. Before Roots Web was bought out, they listed birth information for free.

Also, can anyone find Louisiana birth and death records for free online (60s, on?).

Free? not that I know .. ancestry has Tx birth index but not free.
I really kind of scratch my head on them having that much. Birth records are particularly vulnerable to id theft and/or privacy laws, so it is curious that they would have those.
Same for Louisiana, but I don’t think ancestry has those.
All states legally restrict birth records to those who have immediate valid interest (the person or parents of a child).

Im looking for a website that you can look up public records for everything in any state.?

I want to be able to look up background checks and jail records and marriage and death records. If there is anyone that currently using a website that offers all of this that they know is legit please let me know what it is. Thank you and have a good day.

US Search is ok, but with most of those site for these records you have to pay for it. I believe you even have to pay if you go to a state website requesting this info.
As for any others, I would look into the state and then see what they recommend.

Do I have to be a Democrat to vote after I’m dead?

May 31st, 2010 8 comments

An analysis of state-wide records by the Poughkeepsie Journal reveals that 77,000 dead people remain on election rolls in New York State, and some 2,600 may have managed to vote after they had died. The study also found that Democrats are more successful at voting after death than Republicans, by a margin of four-to-one, largely because so many dead people seem to vote in Democrat-dominated New York City.

that is the easiest way.
