1. SUMMER of FUNK _ Red Hot Mama ~ Funkadelic - from “Standing on the Verge Of Getting It On" (1974)

    A luscious bitch she is, true
    But it’s not nice to fool mother nature
    The proud mother of god like all ho’s
    Is jealous of her own shadow
    Who is this young Vic Tanny bitch
    Who wish to be queen for a day?
    Who would sacrifice the great grandsons and daughters of her jealous mother
    By sucking their brain until their ability to think was amputated
    By pimping their instincts
    Until they were fat, horny and strung-out
    In a neurotic attempt to be queen of the universe
    Who is this bitch?
    Red hot mama from Louisiana
    Thumbin’ her way to Savannah
    She been cooped up too long
    Red hot mama lookin’ to the city
    Taxi dancers and big time spenders
    She’s been groovin’
    Red hot mama was gettin’ down
    Scoping the places where fun to be found
    She was smokin’
    Ride on, red hot mama
    Girl, you sure look good to me
    Ride on, red hot mama
    Girl, you sure look good to me
    Ride on, red hot mama
    Girl, you sure look good to me
    Ride on, red hot mama
    Girl, you sure look good to me
    Red hot mama was really bad
    She was badder than bad, bad as she want to be
    Red hot mama was a real gas
    Doin’ it good and doing it fast
    She was smokin’
    Whoa, {etc}!
    Ride on red hot mama
    Girl, you sure look good to me
    Ride on red hot mama
    Girl, you sure look good to me
    (Come on baby!)
    Ride on red hot mama
    Girl, you sure look good to me
    (Right on!)
    Ride on red hot mama
    Girl, you sure look good to me
    Be my dog!
    You look good, girl
    Carry on!
    Get funky?
    Hey baby
    Be my dog
    Come on, baby!
    Red hot mama
    Right on
    Play, boy-a

    This song is a remake of a song by the Parliaments. The title of this song has been spelled in three different ways on various Parliaments, Funkadelic, and Parliament releases that have featured a version of the song, with the final word being spelled as “Mama,” “Mamma,” or “Momma.”

    The song begins with a spoken word intro that seems to be describing a woman who has the effect of rendering a person unFunky (see P Funk mythology). This intro first appeared in the Funkadelic song “America Eats Its Young”, but in this song is played sped up, then slowed down. The second section is sung and includes the second quote above as the refrain. It is not clear whether the first woman is the same as the “Red Hot Mama” from the second section. It is said that Eddie Hazel was asked to play the solo like Jimi Hendrix. - Wikipedia

  5. "

    Praised be man, he is existing in milk
    and living in lilies -
    And his violin music takes place in milk
    and creamy emptiness -
    Praised be the unfolded inside petal
    flesh of tend’rest thought -
    (petrels on the follying
    wave-valleys idly
    sing themselves asleep) -
    Praised be delusion, the ripple -
    Praised be the Holy Ocean of Eternity -
    Praised be I, writing, dead already and
    dead again -
    Dipped in acid inkl
    the flamd
    of Tim
    the Anglo Oglo Saxon Maneuvers
    Of Old Poet-o’s -

    Praised be wood, it is milk -
    Praised be Honey at the Source -
    Praised be the embrace of soft sleep
    - the valor of angels in valleys
    of hell on earth below -
    Praised be the Non ending -
    Praised be the lights of earth-man -
    Praised be the watchers -
    Praised be my fellow man
    For dwelling in milk”

    Lisa Adams creates images that are often unsettling, sometimes melancholy or by turns uplifting, but always affecting and richly atmospheric. The scale on which she works affords her involved and tightly realised paintings an intimacy that echoes the personal nature of her subject matter. Indeed, she explores grand emotions on a humble scale so that the very act of looking at her paintings is a revelatory and ultimately rewarding experience. Adam’s emblematic paintings hold the promise of divested secrets and play with constructions of language through the incorporation of witty titles. (src.
