Do You Know What I Mean ? - Lee Michaels- 1971



He closed a show I saw at Norfolk Scope in Virginia in 1970 or 1971 , I think Loggins & Messina were headliner on 2nd , and opener was the Checkmates but it was long ago . Nobody knew who he was but the hippies I was with , and me ! So many people were worn out and left , Shame he was really good but pissed off he was closing and very vocal about it and people leaving . Yet , he did a good show , all the people who stayed gave him a encore but you could tell he was a bit saddened .

Grace - Devastating blow to The TRUMP Campaign ?



The Donald is really a disgusting human being , and those of you supporting a guy who mocks disabled people and how would you feel if you were Grace's Parents or your son or daughter was a Disabled VET , your going to tell me you want to vote for this Piece o' Shite , and you want to get fleas ? Cause when you lay doen with dogs , you come up with Fleas ! And they tend to bite you in ur ass ! Just like The Donald will do to our Country if your votes don't stop him , and tell him " Hey Donald , your not fired , you just ain't even gettin' hired !"

Get Michael Pineda out of Yankees rotation right now | New York Post

Get Michael Pineda out of Yankees rotation right now | New York Post
I totally agree with the Post writer , as a matter of fact , I thought this was necessary after Pineda\s last start !
One other thing about him , he always appeared to me to be a Bad - Ass kinda guy but those guys are grinders and work their way out
of jams. Pineda gets pissed-off at the whole stadium and seems to go into ,I don't give in I give up mode. Yes he does have the potential to be great but its a game of Talent and you want to win you need HEART too. And as the writer pointed out TRUST and Pineda is not earning it , in any way shape or form.Nor is he playing with heart in my opinion.I think the MONEY may go to some player's heads , Who knows if he can regain it from Joe and others ; but its June and its getting too late to keep trying to see him turn it around !

VIDEO - Connecticut Woman Mistaken for Transgender and Harassed in Walma...



My Dad was from N.Carolina , and never spoke bad about People , he felt there were only 2 kinds of people , Good or Bad , and nothing else should matter on how we should judge others ! You did Good Girl , glad you shared how dumb some people can be !

Paul Pena - Jet Airliner (The Original)

The Wizard loves the fact that he still is learning something new every day @69, although not as frequently as when I was in my youth ! I like many people out there never knew this bit of Trivia , that Stevie Guitar Miller did not pen JET AIRLINER ! So here is the Original , with a interesting story behind it , A real shame this guy's music was not released ,especially this his 2nd Album with this huge hit by Steve Miller.

Medical Cannabis and Its Impact on Human Health a Cannabis Documentary (...



Someone should sue this LAW , first its racist intention is proven by Prison racial differences to Population of Country ! and 2nd , too many people who have used it for illnesses it helps , category1 is a lie as science already has proven and I myself have diabetes 2 and weed gets my leg inflammation to retract , which anti-inflammatories in pill form give no help !

Medical Marijuana Has Just Been Legalized On The Entire Continent Of Australia! - Higher Perspective

Medical Marijuana Has Just Been Legalized On The Entire Continent Of Australia! - Higher Perspective:
Good News for my Aussie Buddies but the USA needs to lead , so they can get the money into our Infrastructure, Medical & Educational Programs , which will create lotta Jobs and more taxes collected from more employees , who also are spending monies in their town .Plus when we cover enough , we will need to import somethings from say Thailand or Jamaica and hopefully Mexican Oaxacan Sinsemilia  and Acopolco Gold they were very special herbs in the '70s , must be even crazier nowadays , with choices for what ails ya BUD !!
Please share to educate the Naysayers who don't know it was another LIE by their Fed.Govt. ! It started when Prohibition was repealed ! Not for any real problem but just like on 9/11 , the fear of Weed came from a Movie made to associate Mass Insanity and Hell raising and Murdering POT Heads , all the lives ruined for over 60 years , so they could get Payoffs from Big Pharma, whoever got them to condemn hemp which doesn't get you high but looks similar I guess a relative , but now u know why paper was replaced with Plastic for Payoffs too ! During WW2 was allowed to be grown for War effort , hemp was ok'd then back off after the War , So Dumb !

You're Watching Last Week Tonight with John Oliver Season 2 Episode 30

You're Watching Last Week Tonight with John Oliver Season 2 Episode 30

John Oliver is quickly becoming a Comedic Ralph Nader as each week he gives us incredible stories on things in this World , that just ain't right ! I do kn ow he takes a lot of flack ,for commenting on USA based stories , the nerve of a POME telling US Yanks , that something in our Country isn't Kosher ! 
Just Sayin" , I'm a NY Brooklynite and even I will tell you that this guy is hitting the Nail right on the Head ! At least with some of our problems and the rest of the polluted World too ! This Week , John tells us about where ISIS buys its Favorite Transport or the Oil Biz in N.Dakota , un-real , not at all ! Deja Vu , for sure !!!

2016 Induction Ceremony | The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum

2016 Induction Ceremony | The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum
The Wizard is just sayin' :
There are 5 Nominees who have no Business in this Nominations for 2016 , when you still have no Nominees named  Jethro Tull or the Moody Blues Inducted ... or How about The Doobie Brothers or Charlie Daniels who pioneered Rock Country Music over 40 years ago. On all my social places the people think the R&R HoF is a joke. Instead of deserving Bands , you nominate from All Genres to expand your audience , not to Hail ,Hail Rock and Roll , the Generations now growing up saying , why is Grandpa or Grandmas Music so much better then today's ! That's why these Bands you fail to induct , have people thinking you have sold out the Hall to try to expand your visitations at the Hall and get bigger Audiences for the Induction Ceremonies on TV , to make Money !
    If these Five Bands are over-looked and one Artist as either a Solo or Band , and the other Non-R&R Nominees get inducted , as the only thing R&R Lovers liked about Janet Jackson , was her TiT popping out at the Super Bowl Halftime Show , years ago ! The Spinners were great , but it wasn't R&R but I liked it! 2016 YES ,Chicago ,Deep Purple , Cheap Trick and the Cars but I 'm not sure if Steve Miller is up Solo or as the Steve Miller Band.
    You will be losing People as long as you keep ignoring what so many people are saying about your Nominating this year : Janet, Chaka Khan and NWA a rapper group ! Los Lobos deserving but Nine Inch Nails what's the rush ! Poor Joe Cocker's Rolling Over not Stoned in his grave , as you passover him , the guy everyone loves singing With a Little Help from My Friends , better then Ringo's Beatles version ...its just a great song and Joe made us all feel him ! As he did on all his hits and duets ! Cocker was a Soul Man ! Well , I will copy this and pass ,I mean Post it around !
So pls share this and maybe the Hall of Shame will Shake ,Rattle and Roll , then wake up Little Susie and They will, They will ROCK YOU !
Sorry my Meds are kicking in on my 68th , also John Lennon's Birthday too !

The 25th Anniversary Rock And Roll Hall 2009 full



The Wizard Got to see Smokey Robinson& The Miracles, when his wife was also part of the Miracles on back-up vocals , they were so Good ! I did see Little Stevie Wonder doing Fingertips #1 and # 2 , both were performing in Brooklyn at # MurraytheKR&RRevues #TheBrooklynFOX ! Then the #BritishInvasion shook everything up big time ! It also got more recognition for Black Artists especially with the Brits who all wanted to be Bluesmen , turning on the youth of the World onto Many greats like #BBKING , then #Slowhand or #EricClapton if you prefer and he goes Big Time with #Cream and
#Derek&The Dominoes . Most people may never heard of Hendrix if he had not gone to England and as they believe , discovered Jimi !
