H-E-Y!!! Please REMEMBER that you can order fantastic Zzaj Productions CD's from our HOMEMADEMUSIC site, at: http://www.homemademusic.com/~zzaj We are in URGENT need of your support, too, as we were caught in a "lay-off" situation (that was a direct result of the WTC affair). Wouldn't hurt (I suppose) if you remind them that the C-mas season is getting near, & a ZP CD makes a very nice gift for friends who love adventure in their music(s)
Now, HERE'S a first... there has NEVER been a Zzaj-rant (before) that wasn't written by Zzaj. Our (long-time) underground taping friend Chris Phinney sent me a comment or 3 on the rant I did about GREED in issue # 41... he volunteered to "extend" thee rant with a few of his own thoughts... & here it IS! THANKS, Chris!
Ahhhh,Yes GREED in AmeriKKKa !!!!
Those big houses! Yeah who needs that much space anyway ?
8,000 & 10,000 square feet huge friggin’monstrositys..
Hell, I work on some of these & let me tell ya,lots of these houses this size only 2 people live there,rolling around this huge place....Man I have a customer who said to me a few years back, "I dont know why I bought such a big house,(6,000 square) when its just me & my wife living here..." (bear in mind that they moved from a 3,500 square foot place).
All I could do was like bite my tongue man, to keep from saying - "status symbol... GREED man - GREED!
Lots of these monstro houses I have noticed hardly have any furniture in them & I have seen some that go for years with sheets tacked up for drapes....
You Catch My Drift ????
This also brings up the question of Why do you need a new car every 2 or 3 years? Whats wrong with the old ones? I could understand if it was a lemon or you dogged it or wrecked it, but just because you want it? Doesnt make any sense to me.My work Van is 22 years old & our family car is 12 years old.
This is just another prime example of GREED in AmeriKKKa!
People,why do you need that monster SUV when you only have 2 or 3 people or 4 people in your immediate family? Well its because you have been brainwashed into thinking that you need it or want it... But yet they are made for off road action but never see dirt, not a speck. Or all the 4 wheel drives that never ever leave the asphalt jungle...Well you know the answer !!!!
Folks,Why do you have that inground swimming pool in your backyard & never use it but maybe once a year ? I could understand it if you used it but....I know why - It looks nice, status, GREED thats why?
While I am venting here may as well lightly touch base on a few other vents,like Cell phones.I understand fully the need for - 1 for emergencies yeah,but to drive down the road & chat away & nearly run me off the road or run over parking breakers, curbs, hit poles & stuff? Stupid - All because you are just 2 busy chatting away about that TV show last night or little Johnnys soccer game..Forget it...
One more thing that really chaps my hide of late,not related to GREED,but that I feel the need to vent on is Why do you send me your CDs (I am glad to get them yes) & expect me to listen to it right away(I will as time permits), comment on it right away, but you wont get yourself a free mp3 player for your computer & listen to my new music, which wont be available on CD or tape for a while.Usually you dont even have to download it, just listen....
Ok enuff of that vent type stuff,thanx for listening!!!
