GoodBye to Mr. Gil Scott Heron

Good Bye to Mr. Gil Scott Heron...my all time favorite spoken word poet and musician.....I went to see him in a concert with my friend Gary...where we were the only 2 non "African-Americans".....what an amazing Man....good bye Gil....


Gil Scott-Heron (born April 1, 1949 -- May 27, 2011) was an American poet, musician, and author known primarily for his late 1960s and early 1970s work as a spoken word soul performer and his collaborative work with musician Brian Jackson. His collaborative efforts with Jackson featured a musical fusion of jazz, blues and soul music, as well as lyrical content concerning social and political issues of the time, delivered in both rapping and melismatic vocal styles by Scott-Heron. The music of these albums, most notably Pieces of a Man and Winter in America in the early 1970s, influenced and helped engender later African-American music genres such as hip hop and neo soul. Scott-Heron's recording work is often associated with black militant activism and has received much critical acclaim for one of his most well-known compositions "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised". On his influence, a music writer later noted that "Scott-Heron's unique proto-rap style influenced a generation of hip-hop artists".

Winter in America is a studio album by American soul musician and poet Gil Scott-Heron and musician Brian Jackson, released in May 1974 on Strata-East Records. Recording sessions for the album took place on three recording dates in September and October of 1973 at D&B Sound Studio in Silver Springs, Maryland. The album served as the third collaboration effort by Scott-Heron and Jackson following the latter's contributions on Pieces of a Man and Free Will. As the first record produced by the two musicians, it was also the first of their work together to have Jackson receive co-billing for a release. The album features introspective and socially-conscious lyrical content by Scott-Heron and mellow instrumentation and soundscape stylistically rooted in jazz and the blues, which produced a fusion of bluesy jazz-based vocals and Jackson's free jazz arrangements. The album is also one of the earliest known studio releases to contain proto-rap elements such as a stripped-down production style and spoken word-vocalization.

Philly Open 2011


 The 2011 Philly open was held this weekend at Sedgely Woods in Fairmount Park in the City of Brotherly Love.  It was a sold out Tier -B event with over 100+ participants.  Maggotx competed in a very tough 10 man field of Advanced Grandmasters.  The rains ended and the weather was beautiful.....sunny mid 60's with a soft breeze.....awesome. 

After the first round I was on the Lead card and tied for first place.  It was a tough layout and my putting wasn't quite  stellar, however I managed to claw my way into first place and hold on to win 1st place by a stroke...!!!!.I also managed to take the CTP prize, a sweet Pro katana.....As always all of the players were a great crowd to play with.  I am very pleased with this win as I think this is probably my biggest disc golf win.  I'm feeling a little sore today after 40 long holes of disc golf but it was well worth it....

Philly Open 201  Prizes and Player package.  The player package was a t-shirt from Skyline Disc Golf and your choice of disc (I selected a Discraft Glide)....The winings were a $65.00 value disc selection of you got to pick out from the items for sale.  I selected a Buzz SS custom, an XL elite Z custom, an R-Pro Yeti Aviar Putter, and a Discraft X-Press......

  ...................and Last but not Least my 1st Place Trophy.....

Thanks to all the Players, Volunteers and organizers for all their hard work on this event.....

Just when you thought you'd seen it all in the Middle East....Iraq, Afghanistan, now Libya....not to be out done...it's announced THAT.....

Iran Claims They've Built A 'Flying Saucer'



The picture shown  above accompanied the release

An official state-run Iranian news agency claims that the country has created the world's first 'flying saucer.'
In the official announcement on Fars' website, the news agency claimed the craft was unveiled to Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamene in a special ceremony last week. The unmanned craft is aparently intended largely for aerial imaging.
The saucer, named "Zohal" (which translates to "Saturn" in Persian) is reportedly part of a "new generation of vertical flyers," according to the Daily Mail.

Zohal, designed and developed jointly by Farnas Aerospace Company and Iranian Aviation and Space Industries Association (IASIA), can be used for various missions, specially for aerial imaging.
The flying machine is equipped with an auto-pilot system, GPS (Global Positioning System) and two separate imaging systems with full HD 10 mega-pixel picture quality and is able to take and send images simultaneously.
Zohal uses a small, portable navigation and monitoring center for transmission of data and images and can fly in both outdoor and indoor spaces.



The picture shown  above accompanied the release, though it does not state that it's an actual picture of the machine. PopSci suggests that this alternate release, issued by the Iranian Students' News Agency has a more accurate depiction of the craft.

hey Mag,so has Cubby gone underground?Latest DG World vid even has a new voice.So Camdem,NJ has made news with the loss of half their police force.Crime/wild west scenery has returned to many of our cities,makes one want to find a nice safe cave.

The property surrounding it would have to have a few baskets,perhaps 9.Better yet would be a mini dgc inside that cave.Stay safe,mr ed.
