IN MY DREAM by Drew Villegan

In my dream, I am sitting on a white chair at a white table. The floor is white, as is the ceiling. I room I am in is a kitchen. Everything is white. The room is glowing, full of light. There is no sound. All is calm as if at rest. To my left a door opens. A man surrounded in white light steps into the room. He is holding a guitar. He is bathed in white light. It is Stevie Ray Vaughn. He pulls up a chair across from me at the table. He begins to play the guitar. Sweet music fills the room. It’s as if the all the angels are singing together. My spirit soars as I am carried along by the music. After a while, that felt timeless, he stopped playing. As we sat there across the white table, in the white room, bathed in white light he spoke these words to me. "Music is Love. Love leads to Understanding. Understanding leads to Compassion." Then he got up from the table, turned and walked out through the door. I woke up a short time later his words repeating in my head, "Music is Love. Love leads to Understanding. Understanding leads to Compassion."

Mainstream archeologists claim that the Incas built Machu Picchu in the 15th-century.The citadel situated on a mountain ridge  7,970 ft (2,430metres)  above sea level is located in the Cusco Region in Peru, above the Sacred Valley, 50 mi  (80 kilometers ) northwest of Cuzco   They couldn't be more wrong. The real builders of Machu Pichuu left a little clue as to who they were. The first picture shows a section of terraced mountain top. In the background,  another mountain top.

2016 marks the 52nd consecutive year that I have played the guitar. My beginning as a musician actually goes back two years to 1962 when I took up playing Tenor Sax in the Jr High School Band. My first gig on guitar before a live audience was in May of 1964. The auditorium was packed with all 5th through 8th graders for the first annual Warren JHS Talent show. My partner in Rock & Roll was a fellow classmate, drummer "Mouse" Drabecki.

The first song we played was a 1950's hit, RamRod. I played it on sax. The crowd was visibly agitated, spontaneously tapping their toes and snapping their fingers. The song was followed by a solid round of applause. I then switched to guitar. The song we played was the ( still) all time guitar / drum line aka, WIPE OUT. Within seconds of launching into that classic riff dah dah dah  - dah dah dah  - dah dah dah  - dah dah..... the whole auditorium was on its' feet, clapping to the beat of the music.  When we finished the song the roar of the crowd was deafening... the teachers were the judges and no, we didn't win the competition, that went to a rich kid named Mc Farland, who played some crap on coronet!....

In celebration of 5 Decades of making music on guitar, I will be releasing various videos and music tracks from times before.  The first video is from 1993 recorded live on location at "Dance Across Texas, a ten thousand square foot Country Music  nightclub that reigned supreme in the early 1990's breaking such acts as, Brooks & Dunn, Pam Tillis, Jon Anderson, Selena and more. The song is a Hank Williams Jr cut entitled, "Good Friends Good Whiskey & Good Lovin'.

"Quote On"

"The only thing politicians love more than spending your money is taking more of it" - Dr. Ron Paul Texas, USA

 


 

“You walk into this room at your own risk, because it leads to the future; not a future that will be, but one that might be. This is not a new world: It is simply an extension of what began in the old one. It has patterned itself after every dictator who has ever planted the ripping imprint of a boot on the pages of history since the beginning of time. It has refinements, technological advances, and a more sophisticated approach to the destruction of human freedom. But like every one of the super states that preceded it, it has one iron rule: Logic is an enemy, and truth is a menace.”

Rod Sterling, The Obsolete Man.

Around 1998  here in Austin, TX, I started noticing persistent trails left by jets in the sky above me. I noticed that unlike normal jet contrails which only happened occasionally and lasted only a brief time, these trails not only stretched out across the sky from horizon to horizon, they spread out forming dense overcast conditions. Finally in 2007 I shot a video of what I was seeing.  The video has been viewed to date by 205, 420 people and is called

George Harrison - A Tribute

Bo Diddley was in Austin recently for a show at the Paramount Theater. His show was upbeat and lively despite a recent back operation and the loss of some toes to diabetes. He had his trademark square red guitar and led the audience through a  resounding "HEY BO DIDDLEY" call/ answer session. He also sang a new tune called "Wake Up America". Who would of thought that he would have such insight into current affairs...Thank You Bo Diddley!

Three new videos have been added to the RibTicklinVideo website. An early computer video called 9 Coronas, kind of a weird Al Yankovitch kind of thing and just out from The Jon Stewart Show, "What Is Bushs' Job?". And OVER THE TOP early JIM CAREY as FIRE MARSHALL BILL !!! TOO MUCH FUN....
