    Happy Holidays

    Happy Holidays Everyone!!!

    I hope y'all have a safe, bike schwag-filled holiday season. Maybe I'll get to ride with some of you, and for some of you I hope to ride and build trails with you again.

    Again. I hope you all have a safe, happy holiday season.

    The Nativity Will Not Be Televised

    You will not be able to stay home, brother.
    You will not be able to plug in, turn on and cop out.
    You will not be able to lose yourself on skag and skip,
    Skip out for beer during commercials,
    Because the Nativity will not be televised.

    The Nativity will not be televised.
    The Nativity will not be brought to you by Xerox
    In 4 parts without commercial interruptions.
    The Nativity will not show you pictures of Nixon
    blowing a bugle and leading a charge by John
    Mitchell, General Abrams and Spiro Agnew to eat
    hog maws confiscated from a Harlem sanctuary.
    The Nativity will not be televised.

    The Nativity will not be brought to you by the
    Schaefer Award Theatre and will not star Natalie
    Woods and Steve McQueen or Bullwinkle and Julia.
    The Nativity will not give your mouth sex appeal.
    The Nativity will not get rid of the nubs.
    The Nativity will not make you look five pounds
    thinner, because the Nativity will not be televised, Brother.

    There will be no pictures of you and Willie May
    pushing that shopping cart down the block on the dead run,
    or trying to slide that color television into a stolen ambulance.
    NBC will not be able predict the winner at 8:32
    or report from 29 districts.
    The Nativity will not be televised.

    There will be no pictures of pigs shooting down
    brothers in the instant replay.
    There will be no pictures of pigs shooting down
    brothers in the instant replay.
    There will be no pictures of Whitney Young being
    run out of Harlem on a rail with a brand new process.
    There will be no slow motion or still life of Roy
    Wilkens strolling through Watts in a Red, Black and
    Green liberation jumpsuit that he had been saving
    For just the proper occasion.

    Green Acres, The Beverly Hillbillies, and Hooterville
    Junction will no longer be so damned relevant, and
    women will not care if Dick finally gets down with
    Jane on Search for Tomorrow because Black people
    will be in the street looking for a brighter day.
    The Nativity will not be televised.

    There will be no highlights on the eleven o'clock
    news and no pictures of hairy armed women
    liberationists and Jackie Onassis blowing her nose.
    The theme song will not be written by Jim Webb,
    Francis Scott Key, nor sung by Glen Campbell, Tom
    Jones, Johnny Cash, Englebert Humperdink, or the Rare Earth.
    The Nativity will not be televised.

    The Nativity will not be right back after a message
    about a white tornado, white lightning, or white people.
    You will not have to worry about a dove in your
    bedroom, a tiger in your tank, or the giant in your toilet bowl.
    The Nativity will not go better with Coke.
    The Nativity will not fight the germs that may cause bad breath.
    The Nativity will put you in the driver's seat.

    The Nativity will not be televised, will not be televised,
    will not be televised, will not be televised.
    The Nativity will be no re-run brothers;
    The Nativity will be live.
    Nobody cares what kind of bike you ride.

    Twisted, I'm guessing Allen Ginsberg or Lawrence Ferlighetti is the author of that poem.

    The revolution died in the 60s. We are now wired to tv, internet, twitter, I-pods, I-pads, smart phones, etc... It is hip to be tuned in every waking hour instead of tuned out. The Orwellian nightmare of 1984 is self imposed. The self induced brain washing is nearly complete. Please tell me how to act. Tell me what to buy. Tell me how to conform.

    None the less that Gil Scott is one cool cat. He would be fun to bring along on a long backcountry ride.
