Alien Invasion…

DLR / Tech / / 128 Comments

dave-globeA couple of subjects. They do relate although initially they may not seem like it.

I want to deal with the issue of sensitivity though historically, I have been dramatically insensitive as a means of drawing attention to those who are overly sensitive. I am sensitive and I feel that I’ve seen something that would bear a sensitive comment. There’s a documentary that you can now see on YouTube in regards to an island that is flooding– Vanuatu or Micronesia or some such. They followed around the tribespeople as they’ve done in New Guinea and the Amazon. These indigenous folks, at one point in history, were cannibals.

As a means of a linear historical documentary, they had a Millennial pair up with a great-grandfather (one of the oldsters). To me, he looked like he was in his 80’s. The great-grandfather taught him the ancient ways: building a canoe, crafting tiki, cooking, etc. Seemingly it was impromptu, the young fella who spoke English, asked the great-grandfather, “When are you going to teach me about cannibalism?” The old man laughed and put it off for a while. The young man coaxed it out of him until the old man said, “I’ll demonstrate as opposed to describing.” The kid was joking around and asked, “How would I find dinner?” The man said, “Come I will show you.” They went and hid to the side of a path outside the village. (This was all carefully filmed.) They sat in the bushes. One of the village women came walking by in a mufti and a wrap around her head, a larger woman. The kid says, “Should we grab this one?” The old man laughs and says, “You’ll have a heart attack before you’re 50. That’s not the way you go.” Another woman comes walking down the path, normal size. Kid says, “Would you have grabbed this one?” Man says, “No, there’s no meat on her bones.” Right behind her was one of the production assistants clearly there for the documentary. She was a hot number, like a Naomi Campbell, and the kid says, “Would you have eaten her?” The old man says to the boy, “No, this one we would take home and then we would eat mom.”

There are so many sub-groups that you cannot be insensitive toward. I felt this might have been one that I could describe. Sensitive people are already pulling out there hammer and tongs for even relaying something to you that I have seen or… may have seen. This compels an even greater question. A lot of folks are talking about climate change and global warming. (It’s just a matter of minutes before the polar bears are knocking on your kitchen window looking for a handout.) I think that there are even greater consternations heading our way. I, of course, am talking about an alien invasion.

My old friend Art Buchwald wrote about this when I was 13. I think the subject is even more poignant today and I’d like to remix it. It all falls under the empirical umbrella of sensitivity. Empathy is what separates us from other animals… I think. We think. I do have a few concerns because clearly extraterrestrial, superior intelligence isn’t going to just land in the parking lot. More importantly, it’s going to land in our schools and playgrounds. I got nothing against little green men. I think interaction and contact is healthy, especially for the kids. I do have concerns. If a superior intelligence is able to levitate, do you really want your little girl running against that being in track & field at school? I say it’s an unfair advantage. You want your son getting plowed over on the football field by little purple kids who have harnessed the power of the sun and can travel at light speed? I’m just saying… think about it. I say it might be a little unfair and there needs to be structure. If we let it continue unattended before you know it the whole goddamned basketball team is going to be green. I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “Dave, the Incredible Hulk is green.” Yeah, yeah… but he’s in show business.

 

Postscript: I thought I’d be able to attack both of these sub-groups insensitively and have a field day to at least compel some questions towards the super sensitivity that seems to govern a lot of our blogging and internetting and websiting, etc. I thought I was on safe ground attacking cannibals and little green men. At least until this morning when I received a very angry email from attorneys representing the Incredible Hulk…

    Pps …. three days later Sammy Hagar arrived with the claims of his friends – the aliens. Just at that moment some cannibals climbed over the Berlin wall. After an appreciative look they grabbed Sammy, marinated him in Tequila … and held a five-day banquet on the terrace.

    Truth is we are all aliens, we just don’t know it. And we have been cannibalizing ourselves, on this island we exist on.

    All Out There living lives here, as a human. Out There we are all kinds of beings, here we are all one kind of being. That for a reason.

    The aliens are hot, depending on which part of Mercury they’re from. If they’re from the northern region, yeah they’re gonna be hot. And they’re gonna bring good music too, so there’s something we can all enjoy. Oh and the food will be good too. You know, Tex-Merc is my favorite type of food.

    David : I want to apologize to you because last March 19 I left a message in the wrong place, following a response that you gave to another user in this article. The correct thing would have been to write it here, followed by the last intervention. I stayed as if in a dialogue between two people a third appeared to get in without being invited. This was not my intention and only later I realized. When I saw him with a new message on the blog, after months without news I gained the urge to write to greet him. It was the first time I wrote here in language that is not mine. My native language is Spanish. Everything expressed in that message is sincere. I wish you the best for this year and look forward to it with your new articles, videos and music projects. Greetings from Montevideo, Uruguay: Claudia B. Mendietta Diaz

    Discovered VH and DLR just recently…son thinks I’m addled….usta think he was smart.
    Been using most of my current free time getting current…from ’78 to the last post here. Can NOT believe what all you’ve done, where you’ve been and how MANY times you’ve changed up everything!.
    I’m also new to music generally. During all that time you and the rest of the R&Rs were making history, I was keeping my kids alive…genetic disorder..but I digress.
    I am probably your oldest newest fan, being in that sixth decade also, but I am simply awestruck by the sheer audacity of your career. In fact, I bought my one and only R&R fanmerch; the original logo keychain. Son kinda chokes whenever he sees it…life is good.
    FWIW, being a natural-born paranoid, I see the stark difference between everything before October and..well, NOW and noticing that there’s nothing from you at all…hope you’re not ill…frankly, I’ve had enough of loving someone (even just fanlove) and having to let go. If you’re going away permanently, give us a little advance warning, ok….?

    Belated Happy Birthday!
    I did not forget your great day. Of course not. How could the 10.10. be forgotten. The 283. day of the year. The day on which the Fiji Islands became British crown colony in 1874, the Fiji Islands obtained their complete independence from Great Britain in 1970, the day on which the Treaty Banning Nuclear Weapons Tests in the Atmosphere, in Outer Space and Under Water went into effect in 1963. Guiseppe Verdi and a rock star were born on this day. Maybe you know him? David Lee Roth. We haven`t heard much from him for a long time. It seems he`s busy, has no time for a new blog.
    So I read Alien Invation… again. From then on my thoughts revolve around cannibals in Middle Europe, minorities and their rights, Art Buchwald and the State of Liberty. She`s still crying. About walls built around a State that belonged to a minority, about wars and cruelty, about the world. Today the State of Liberty is highly suicidal.

    Sorry Dave, but this Dragon really don’t look nice or friendly or like a source/symbol of good luck, strength, generosity, benevolent or wise – this Dragon on your back look angry, aggressive, unpredictable, dissatisfied, evil and unfortunate – also that “strange ugly looking cards” on your chest. The only nice kinds of tattoos are these flowers – but it is much too much and that’s why I think it’s ugly / awfull and a shame for your nice body and skin and I thing it brings you just misfortune, no good luck, no good charisma or karma.
    And I tell you what: I think that these huge parts of ugly tattoos was the idea of other people whom persuaded you to do that and got their own crazy idea this like a flea in your ear. I could be wrong in my thoughts and opinion, but I think that I’m right with my feelings and thoughts also in the case of you, and I felt and thought it like that from the beginning. Many people have a strange twisted perception and apparently can not distinguish between negative and positive! If an animal growls at me, its teeth bared and bites, then this is just as little to indicate as positive – but a sign of anger, fear, aggression or aversion and to interpret as a warning signal – and the same example would be when I would a evil-looking demon, horrible grimace, or beast let tattooed / stung on the skin of my body – and it’s always a sign of who or what you identify with or what you want to express! You did not show good taste with these tattoos. But I think that certainly all Asian and Japanese find you irresistible now – and that is most important to you. It was ultimately your own decision and now you has to live with it for the rest of your life. Dave, I am sorry, but you are now estranged from me, you are there like a stranger to me, when I see you there, then I no longer see that kind of David Lee Roth, whom I liked so much, because when I look at you now then I can only see just a stranger Japanese man (it is as if his Jewish (Russian, French) soul had been assimilated and devoured by the Japanese soul. I think that the souls can change completely. Some people are happier when they spiritually stunted and withered like a plant and say goodbye to their spiritual source and identity. But it is your life. Every human being has the right to deny his spiritual, physical and psychological roots and betray himself and deceive himself. The one I always miss will never come back. Since that time my inner connection to you is disappeared. I think it’s time now to finish and try to end my passion/dedication and obsession for you. People like me just want to see what they like in special people like you, and what they wanna see, but that is not the reallity, I know 😔😞 <3 ) . Best wishes and greetings

      Dear Stephanie, I respect your opinion. I will not refer here your analysis about tattoos. But keep in mind that Eastern culture is in your life from the beginning with martial arts of about 12 years old. It is not from now on this harvest.
      Perhaps David feels more complete or enriched as person with this spirituality, etc. Just because you are not on the same line does not mean that it is something negative, it is different. And as humans we are universal and we can be a cultural plurality without abandoning our original roots. Multicultural In fact, there is the syncretism of cultures. Why can not human beings feed from different sources? And do not apologize for not feeling the same way, you’re right. Greetings.

I am looking forward to those long days of summer and the adventures they will bring, that was a great idea about the sports equipment bags you put out there on that survival show you did, I tried to get some at dicks sporting goods, but they were all out… then I asked them “Hey! Why don’t you guys have a T shirt for your store that says I love dicks?” Then they tossed me out…

    It’s a given that you’re the best showman ever to step on stage. But what frustrates me is that you don’t get any kudos as a lyricist. And that’s too bad because I’m a songwriter in fact I am the nephew of Max D. Barnes legendary country music songwriter… so I pride myself on knowing a thing or two about lyrics. You’ve been overlooked as a lyricist (but not by me). Scotty Emmerick wasn’t the guy to write songs with. He didn’t understand you. I do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQjNBNE7wfw&t=4s Kim Kardashian had my song on her website on her website until she did a revamp of her website. However it is still one of her 15 YouTube Fav’s.
