    Red Vermin V Brown Sugar? Name The Curs! 


    A good start by one newspaper…

    How woke trolls silenced Brown Sugar: Activists targeted Rolling Stones devotees by infiltrating their online fan club and swaying debate over song’s lyrics

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-10117969/How-woke-trolls-silenced-Brown-Sugar-infiltrating-Rolling-Stones-online-fan-club.html

    …given that so many media these days…

    Dirty Asses Need Exposed, Again! 

    ….abhor investigative journalism.

    But a bit more digging should be done.

    Shame! Stones Pander To Woke-Whiners! 

    .

    The woke-weasel ‘trolls’ are cultural marxists…

    ..or at best fellow-travellers.

    They should be named, identified as the subversive running-dogs they are…

    .

     

    ..

    ..and I could say shamed…

    .

    .

    …except that red woke vermin have no shame!

      It’s time these wokers were described properly.
      They are cultural marxists.

      Well put.
      Johnson and other so-called ‘conservatives’ who agree with him that it’s ‘ok to be woke’ should be told over and over that they are giving the nod to marxIsm.
      As if they didn’t know.

    Shame! Stones Pander To Woke-Whiners! 


    I have been a fan of the Rolling Stones for VERY many years….

    .

    .

    …so am deeply disappointed to read that they have knuckled under…

    American single label

    Brown Sugar Cancelled! 

    ….to slimy woko-weasels who slither out of bed each day desperate to be offended by ANYTHING!

    People who can actually read are surely obliged to concur with Piers Morgan, who has explained that “Brown Sugar is demonstrably a song aimed at defending and supporting black women, not one that seeks to denigrate them or make light of slavery.. “ https://sg.news.yahoo.com/piers-morgan-rolling-stones-brown-sugar-143415565.html

    Frankly, I expected better of them, or at least of Mick Jagger, who despite youthful excesses…

    • =
    • Mick with Tina Turner! I can remember a Uni Xmas Ball at which my partner’s dusky allure, similar to Tina’s, was celebrated by the DJ playing ‘Brown Sugar’ in her honour!
    • oooooooooo

    ….always seemed to show –

    A – a healthy enthusiasm for women..

    and

    B – a capacity for rational thought.

    However, I draw some small consolation from Mick’s refusal to rule out the excellent song for future tours.

      I think I’m a bit younger than you but after all the years since they started singing it, Brown Sugar is still a great song.
      Who listens to the words anyway?
      It’s a great song

    Mars And Parsley! Why Grovel To An Addled Brat? 


    “We all heard Greta,” Parkin told the Guardian. “Greta is right… “

    https://www.theguardian.com/business/2021/oct/05/corporate-net-zero-pledges-climate-crisis-mars-ceo

    Thus ranted a Man from Mars, the candy company, a flunkey echoing his boss, and isn’t it a sad sight to see, all this bowing and scraping to The Addled Swede Brat?

      The Addled Swede Brat.

    =========

    There was a time that, whenever we thought of Mars Bars, we thought of the delicious Marianne Faithfull.

    … 

    ==
    She was a ‘close friend’ of at least one member of the Rolling Stones and we teen fan-fellows envied Mick Jagger ferociously.
    Among other interesting aspects of their ‘scene’ was an urban legend (vigorously denied by all concerned!) concerning Mars Bars…

    Mars-Bar Marianne Disses Brits -‘Dreadful People!’ .

    …but alas, her physical appeal was not at all matched by cerebral prowess, in terms of which, arguably, she did NOT age well!

    Nevertheless, I’ll wager that, even as a near octogenarian, she must be more attractive than the grotty grumpy Swede, whose mental health is surely not being improved…

        Sorry, Uncle Oz, I was working on another post when your comment came in. I had to edit out one or two of your more colourful comments and got the post and the comment mixed up.
        I do agree with you, though, on both what you said and what I had to omit!

    One Stone Less…RIP Charlie Watts! 


    I’ve been a Stones fan for many, many years, and took the offspring to see them live at Wembley…

    .

    .

    …back when I lived in The Old Country.

    So it’s sad to record the passing of Charlie Watts.

    No depressing picture of Charlie at age 80 on my page tonight.

    Instead, I’m sure you prefer that photo of the whole band in their youthful prime!

    Mars-Bar Marianne Disses Brits -‘Dreadful People!’ 


    How many of you are old enough to remember ‘Sixties legend Marianne Faithfull?’
    ==
    ==
    She was a ‘close friend’ of at least one member of the Rolling Stones and we teen fan-fellows envied Mick Jagger ferociously.
    Among other interesting aspects of their ‘scene’ was an urban legend ( vigorously denied by all concerned!) concerning Mars Bars…
    ….
    …………
    … which I won’t go into for fear of the Indonesian censors. She was the daughter of an Austrian aristocrat, which gave her an added exotic appeal.
    One hopes, assuming she’s still blonde, she minds how she goes when re-visiting the parental home-land. 

    One might also wish she’d mind her manners when talking of the people of the land which made her famous and fairly rich.
    She’s certainly old enough to know better than to insult all those Brits – the majority – who think differently from herself on the future of their country  – by abusing them as ‘dreadful people.’.
      oooooooo
     “It is a disaster. I feel sick and very sad. We are back to where it used to be, the right-wing racist Little England, those dreadful people, they’ve always been there.
    =========
    ———–
    Cheeky cow!
    She ought to apologise to the British majority for deploying this hate speech against them.

      I was too young to appreciate Marianne but I have heard the Mars tales, Ross. She is a cheeky cow, though. Who does she think she is, telling us we’re dreadful.people. Over half the country, dreadful? I hope she doesn’t live in England anymore, rubbing shoulders with such a terrible race as the English.

      If she does, she won’t be mixing with the working class, not like she used to when Mick and the other Stones were on the rise. I suppose she thought it was cool to slum it.
      Am I right to say Mick was on the people’s side in the referendum?
      He may have riches and fame like her, but he’s no bloody snob like her!

      I enjoyed the photograph and searched for the Mars Bar story and that was very enjoyable too. She has denied it as you wrote but she did give the raiding London police a quick flash, she says herself..Very interesting post so thanks.
      But did you know that the Austrian noble family she descends from are the Sacher Masochs.
      It was one of them who invented masochism, You would think crunchy bars not mars bars!

      Oh yes I can remember the scandal.
      I think the sales of Mars bars shot up at the time, although I was too young to understand. Kids were a lot more innocent then.

    PRJ, SPG, Plus Indiana Whiskey – Jakarta ‘Stoner’ Gems! 


     

     

    I’ve liked the Stones for years and years, took my offspring to see them in London about a quarter of a century ago, so would be truly happy if they included Indonesia in their next World Tour.

    However, that is a possible event, not at all guaranteed.

    ————

    SAM_9138

    ———–

    So yesterday, as always, every year, I undertook the long trek to the Jakarta Fair – to see the ‘Tribut Rolling Stones!’ 

    As it says in the Good Book, ‘blessed are they that expecteth nothing, for they shall not be disappointed.’

    Actually, it doesn’t say that, but there is more than a grain of truth there, especially in Jakarta!

    Not knowing how good or bad the tribute might be, I settled down at the Panggung Gambir, in the oldest part of the PRJ complex, and at 8pm the show began.  

    ===========

    SAM_9135 SPGs!.

    ooooooooo

    I should mention I was footsore by that time, having wandered round and round, admiring the Sales Promotion Girls, of whom the above are splendid examples.

    But to the music.

    It wasn’t bad at all. And all the other fans in the audience agreed. Apparently there are many here who appreciate the Stones – these afficionados call themselves ‘Stoners.’ 

    There were four bands, of varying qualities, so I will only name the best.

    Indiana Whiskey, whose singer, pictured on-stage further up the page, has perfected his imitation of Sir Mick Jagger’s stance, gestures and gyrations.

    His colleagues complement his performance ably.

    And that band did more of my fave Stones’ hits than any of the others. ‘Brown Sugar,’ ‘Satisfaction…’

     

    —–

    ….and the song I love best, ‘Ruby Tuesday. ‘

    I doubt any of them read my writings, but I will make one modest suggestion for improvement. 

    Get the words right!

    Instead of finishing RT with its third verse, said singer simply repeated the second.

    But that’s okay.
