Wuhan virus outside China – SARS is Back!

It’s happening again! This time instead of Canada and the SARS scare of the early part of the 21st Century, it’s China, it’s in humans and it’s contagious and can be spread between humans. It has now spread to Thailand and Japan. The sky is falling… much like the Ebola Virus scare in Africa, this thing has gone (pardon the pun) viral!

SARS Outbreak

This is serious. No matter where you live, the threat of bacterial infection and contagious disease spread from one country to another through human contact has been the thing B-Movies have been made of for years. “Outbreak”, “Contagion”, “Apocalypse Now”…. no, wait…not that one. But it’s true. The simple story of someone visiting a third world country on vacation comes home with a cold that then turns out to be an incurable disease that eats flesh and rots the body from the inside. The Coronavirus as it is technically being called has started small with a mere 41 reported infections. Is that a world health crisis? Not quite. Is it something to be concerned about? Yes. Is it the end of the world as we know it? We’re about to find out.

There are rumors that China has hidden the ‘REAL’ outbreak numbers and could technically hide actual numbers of infections without the world knowing the truth. That certainly wouldn’t be the first time something like this has happened, but now the cat is virtually out of the bag, it will be harder to explain away the minimalist reality of how this could impact everyday life and travel around the world. Once this becomes the topic of the World Health Organization (WHO) as it now has, concerns have to be addressed by scientists and novice experimentalists trying to understand how disease and infection can change the human landscape in the days, months and years to come. Here we go!

Maybe the rumors will be dispelled as they were with Ebola in the past and contain the outbreak to a small sector of humanity, but it is too early to tell. Are we looking at the Zombie Apocalypse? Are we all going to die? YES! Eventually… but in the short term, we have to get on with our lives and pretend like this is not affecting any of us until it really does affect us. If you believe the Doomsday Preachers and End of Days Revolutionists then it’s all predicted and part of a bigger plan for the world to fall into decay and no one will survive. After all, isn’t that why the government has spent billions to get into space where the end will not affect those as they watch from far above? Could be… We’re just sayin’….

Who owns the music? Beats, Clips, Samples, Oh My!

It’s becoming more and more to the forefront… who owns the music… who owns the beat, the riff, the groove? Problem is, now it is getting real! Who recorded it first? Who has the rights? Who is the right person we can contribute and make them believe that we have and are the greatest thing that has ever happened to the life of human existence. Not us… but there is something that needs to be addressed… the real contribution to music and We’re not saying just beats, but real music…. now don’t get offended…..

ALMOST ALL of Modern Popular Music (Hip-Hop & Pop) is sampled. Surprise! Sure, there may be session musicians who are used to fill a void or enhance the machine sounding drones of synth and sampled recordings, but the majority of the sounds heard are not original or unique. If you believe they are, then maybe you’re hearing the different variations of the sounds that have already been created and not listening to the structure of the composition, Even vocals from your favorite singes are polished through AutoTune or another device that flavors the pitch, timber and resonance. Sure, maybe the words and rhymes themselves are the defining characteristic of the composition, but even some of them bend toward trite or words that spark outrage or emotion based on the words themselves and not the poetic resonance of the context.

This is not to say that real music isn’t being created in every part of the word, but it is true that the popularity of chart topping and earbud streams that turn tattoo faced wannabes into multimillionaires. How many other beat stealing, chord ripping and and tone robbing “so called” artists will get the next praise of the critics or “originality” when the majority of what is being created is not original or creative.

It’s unfortunate that sometimes the only real music these days can be heard in clubs and small venues that feature real people playing real instruments together. Sure…. we get it… samples and computers have taken over the world and times must change, and ever since the synthesizer’s invention samples have been added to music, but with purpose.

And yes… the world has to contend with the generations that follow the masses and choose to pander to the rhythmic reproduction of innovation so much so they cannot discern the truth from the sampled reproduction. It is true. Maybe it is a bit of nostalgia or the deep needed desire to crank the amp to 11 and blow away the masses with walls of Marshall stack amps… maybe it is the true vocal patterns of singers and not the over produced and washed drones in perfect pitch that long for the days of broken vocals and wavering voices made the nuances seem more real. Whatever may come, be prepared for the next wave of lawsuits claiming the hottest chart toppers stole the beats and rhythms from some underpaid struggling musician who without help could never be able to sue the dozens of lawyers backing the hit makers. No wonder … no wonder.

Iran – Iran So Far Away

Well… unless you’re from the 80’s or nostalgic for that time, the title doesn’t make much sense. But in today’s political turmoil, it makes sense to being it back to the forefront. Does it make sense to make fun of a country that has potentially the nuclear capability to destroy its neighbors and send the world into chaos? Sure. So let’s delve into a few of the crazy Iranian history lessons with the United States and around the Middle East that have led us to the predicament we are in today.

Over thousands of years the tension in the mid eastern countries has gone on from barbaric and torturous to monumental and spiritual. Run forward another thousand years an get your history from Lawrence of Arabia, then maybe you can see where the in-fighting and tribalism came from until the white imperialists stuck their nose into their world and wanted to take over, divide and section off years of history and somewhat misunderstood confusion.

So how did we get here? Greed? Power? Oil? Gold? Money and Power… all of the above. Oh, yea… forgetting religious and world domination…. NOT!

Whether you call it a HOLY WAR or WWIII, it shouldn’t really matter. Idealists and imperialists set on world domination through deception, lies, torture and covert operations in countries around the world with the intent to destroy those who disagree with their ideology is the basis for what this is all about. And don’t think We’re only talking bout one side of the fence here… its’ every side. Think about that for a minute… every side. Do you really think fences only have 2 sides? Sure, we get it… one side keeping the other side out or able to go to the other side, but there is truly more to it than most everyone sees.

U.S. Defense Secretary: We expect Iran ‘will retaliate’

And they do… rockets flying in the dark of night… bombs exploding in plain sight… death and destruction from glorious intention. What is the next fight that can bring the brink of destruction to the forefront of everyone’s lips? Maybe IMPEACHMENT? Why not? Squirrels! If you’re not looking in the right direction than you are looking at the only distraction that feeds the curiosity of deception and enlightenment. How much more can you take? I know we’re looking forward toward the impending distractions… can’t wait.

What The Hell? Someone Out There Doesn’t Like You!

It’s going on 10 years and you would think we would have learned out lesson a few times ago… For months the CruelWord.com website has been down because of reasons that can only be explained as intentional dismantling of the posts meant to bring enlightenment and opinion to the world. Yes… we we’re hacked again! This was the 4th time in 10 years that words have been removed and although no “Hate Speech” was intended or intentionally published (only portions of the truth), some have decided to jump on the attack and spread the filth of denial. So again we have decided to move servers, find new providers and give it a shot again. This time we’re watching you and we know who you are, where you live and they will find you…. Just be warned… the dark web is a scary place and with the help of internet goons who know your every move, you may be concerned. Then again, maybe not. You never know.

Don’t think for one minute that someone doesn’t know everything about you and what you do. Why are there so many homeless living off the grid? Is it to avoid being caught on the online world that dominates the very fiber of today’s existence? Maybe if you took a moment to look into the eyes of deception and understand that the world around you doesn’t really revolve around you, it might be possible to understand the rantings of a lunatic that decides to publish dribble online and spend every waking hour updating their digital lifestyle with even more frivolous content to suck you into their demented world. Just a thought.

So now we move on again. We keep moving forward, pushing the envelope of tradition and exercising the right to prove no one really knows what the hell they are doing. Including us! So now we start. Rantings and ravings that mean nothing to some and everything to others. Deep and insightful delving of misconceptions and misdirection on topics that leave a blind spot on the existence of human society.

You’re welcome! You’re welcome to post, comment and rant as well. There are some restrictions but if you don’t know what they are you will find out as you go along and we build this again. Take your time… relax… bend your mentality into where it may have never been and understand that not everything you read on the internet is what you should believe or even comprehend. Get over it. It is going to happen to you – so keep an eye on your wallet and the other (if you have two eyes) on the direction your’e not going. Maybe you can actually learn something.
