The Musings of an Eccentric Diva

Welcome to the Musings of an Eccentric Diva. My motto is: Giving Hollyweird movies the finger one movie at a time. Enter at your own risk (insert evil Vincent Price laughter here).
 

THE GODFATHER OF SOUL HAS BEEN CALLED HOMEJames Brown may not have been the most handsome or articulate man in the world but NO ONE with the exception of Otis Redding, could match his pure raw emotion and energy. Just look at old footage and watch his footwork, remarkable! I've never seen anyone move as fast as that man could, even in his golden years he was still a hard act to follow. The raw funk his music exuded was amazing. They called it funk for a reason, when you hear it your face instantly frowns up like you smell something "funky". That is always my reaction when I hear "Get Up Off That Thang", "The Payback", "The Funky Drummer", and many of his other classics. The media is a trip I swear. Upon the announcement of his death, the first thing they brought up was "drug user" and "prison time"and showed footage of his arrests and mugshots. Yes, I know James was no saint but are any of us? I'd like to remember the music immediately after his passing, not the misdeeds. James went out the way I hope to, he rode it until the wheels fell off. Rest in peace Godfather of Soul, this eccentric diva will certainly miss you.
