The Saturday Matinee – To All The U.S. Cubano Families Who Just Got Chumped

by

Yep. The American Flag now flies over the U.S. Embassy in a country dedicated to the abolishment of the one form of government that is guaranteed to bring its denizens out of poverty, i.e., capitalism.

I pity those who think that capitalism is a bad thing, for they’ve been deceived and lied to, and the people who suffered under Castro’s brutal and oppressive regime are unable to speak.

Except for a very few, and I’ve met some of them. They’re not happy about this at all because they remember what happened to themselves and their families when the communists took over.

So where do we go from here?

¡MUSICA CUBANO!

The Cuban sound is a mixture of Spanish, African and European styles, an eclectic mix that blends well. Meanwhile, here’s another great Cuban:

Steven Stills & Manassas. Stills wanted to become one of The Monkees prior to his days with CSN&Y, but he was rejected for contract conflicts. It probably had something to do with being a Cuban, like this orchestra:

In case you didn’t click the link last time around, that’s Prague’s Talichova Komorní Filharmonie in 2012 performing a classic song by the late Cuban composer Frank Zappa.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow.

    The Stephen Stills snark came from the vid title, and I ran with it because I was tired and short on time, hence the Zappa vid. Been busy in meatworld, and sometimes I find that I’m out of cleverosity with mere minutes to go.

    Lo siento. –Bunk
