I must qualify my review by stating that at the time these music genres were recorded they were accepted as ground breaking music. Today, however, the sound is dated and leaves a bit of wanting for a change. Technically, however, it is well played and recorded.

This review is from: Captain Fingers (Audio CD)
I am a fan and, as such, have most of his CDs. This particular one is of an era when funk and the wowow guitar sound were “in.” There is just too much of it and, if you do not like that type of music it will tire you rather quickly. Technically, however, it is well played and recorded.

This review is from: 6 String Theory (Audio CD)
Nice compilation of guitar artistry from several top guitarists from around the world. You get a sample of different approaches or interpretations of standards and some new compositions. It is the type of CD that you play when you are full of energy, brim and happiness.

More of the same exploratory “fusion” music as the other CDs of that time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A movie not to be missed., February 5, 2015

This review is from: La Grande Bouffe (DVD)
A farce to end all farces! This story is about a group of highly accomplished bachelors that are bored with life and decide that the ultimate thrill would be to eat the most delicious foods until they die. But not to die alone because they bring prostitutes and a school teacher to help the debauchery. The cast is headed by Marcello Mastroanni, Phille Noiret, Michel Piccoli and Ugo Tognazi.

The original version is in French but the US version has subtitles…so, read fast, really fast, especially when Mastroianni meets the
“ ladies of pleasure!”

Enjoy and saludos, Rolando

5.0 out of 5 stars her voice can be girlish and happy or forceful as in "The Witch”, February 5, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Raven (Audio CD)
Ms. Pidgeon has a very distinct voice that is smooth, clear, and in some songs haunting. At times and depending on the song, her voice can be girlish and happy or forceful as in "The Witch”. One song that stands out as a sample of her talent and artistry is “Spanish Harlem.” The delivery is slow, melancholic, but deliberate. In fact, Chesky uses this song as a sample of what a well made recording sounds like.

This review would not be fair or complete if I did not acknowledge the recording craftsmanship of David Merrill, Perter Cho and Suzie Hollander and, of course, the top tier musicians and backup vocals.
Saludos, Rolando


Democratic Delusions: The Initiative Process in America
Democratic Delusions: The Initiative Process in America
by Richard Ellis
Edition: Paperback
Price: $19.95
54 used & new from $0.01

4.0 out of 5 stars Don’t Be Fooled By The Voter Initiatives, February 4, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It is a great primer on the now common American initiative process. It is a well structured analytic book that show us how we have been deluded into thinking that we can bypass the “system.” The system in this case is that group that shapes the initiatives and how they confound us with the way they word them; specifically, how they design the initiatives in a way designed to confuse the voter. This is where “no” actually means “yes” and “yes” means “no.”

A useful book that voters should read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Here is a book to help us write better arguments, February 4, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a good but dry “how to book.” It clinically teaches you to various steps in analyzing and writing arguments. It is a good reference book when in need to study an argument and how to structure a clear and concise retort.
