A relaxed frame of mind ensured by the musical trio ensemble’s soothing music permeated Ottawa’s popular Rideau Center’s main floor as shoppers milled about meanwhile, an exclusive few registered at counter verifying that they were invited guests.
They all came for the exclusive event hailing an addition of a new wing to the huge Center and were met by pleasant greeters directing them to register at the special counter meanwhile, wonderful music filled the air.
Afterwards, a special buffet, show, and prepared speeches awaited them in the closed off area that the general public could not enter because of the hired security guards.
Unfortunately, I was not invited and I can’t comment much about what really happened behind the closed off area.

Witness the fact, one member of this Jazz musical group takes his hearing seriously enough to wear ear protection (light orange ear plugs) while performing with the troupe.
According to health authorities, playing loud music can have serious health implications like deafness because of sound level and duration being exposed to it.
The same is true for the fans listening to the loud music, who more than likely, are blasted by sound from the huge loudspeakers placed near the stage and set at maximum level.
Notably, those “rock” and “heavy metal” concerts are probably the worst offenders that destroy many loyal fans hearing producing generations of deaf adults in their wake.
The sax player in middle, forefront is also protecting his eyes from the very bright sun during the very bright and sunny July day when playing at the Heineken Place beer tent during the recent 2016 Montreal International Jazz Festival.

A dramatic news development today…Darth Vader enters race for US president in the upcoming presidential election being held on Tuesday, November 8, 2016.
Strong rumors have been flying ever since a recent video emerged where Vader indicated he is ready for White House.
Darth Vader says he can do better, a lot better, than outgoing president Obama, whom he described as a total failure and an imposter occupying the White House for the profit and gain of the special interests at the expense of the struggling American people.
Vader also described Hillary Clinton as a loser too incompetent and corrupt to be president however, Vader had nicer words for Donald Trump, whom he described as a good opponent to defeat easily because Trump lacks political experience. As for Alice Cooper, Vader called him a court jester good for a laugh.
Vader’s campaign slogan is “No Free Lunch, No Insiders, No Nonsense!”

Feeding was obvious because of the way this racoon behaved near human visitors to the huge Cote-des-Neiges Cemetery nestled on top of Montreal’s Mount Royal Park.
While visiting the sprawling historic cemetery I came across a man feeding this racoon with some “snack food”, I don’t recall what type it was however, I did approach the man to clue him that what he was doing was wrong.
I informed him that feeding these animals makes them dependent on humans for their survival moreover, he was exposing himself to rabies or other nasty bugs should that wild animal be infected.

After learning the awful truth galactic master and total overlord Darth Vader decided being president of the United States of America very sure he can fix things right because he is the best and only truly qualified candidate for the country.
Vader is a very patient ruler however, when he saw what was happening in the years leading up to 2008 and what has followed since, he decided that Americans deserve better and he can make it happen.
Absolute obedience and respect are the only things Vader expects in return heck, he doesn’t need wealth or power like the Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump or even Alice Cooper because he already has enough.

All eyes..well most of them, concentrated on the West Trainz “train” act going on just when this tall, gorgeous, princess passed by waving her hand wishing all her loyal subjects a wonderful day at the 2016 Montreal International Jazz Festival.
As my picture shows the princess, a young woman busker on stilts, in regal colours of white and violet-purple satin dress with a matching colors head garland, long gloves, and necklace stopped momentarily allowing me to take her picture.
As all regals, or royalty do, she majestically waved at me meanwhile, in the background, the WestTrainz five-member troupe blasted away with their exciting, unique, music and entertained their growing crowd of fans, mostly tourists in town for the Jazz Festival.

Hollywood created youth depicts typical shlock produced by this international propaganda center gift-wrapped as some sort of comedy-reality that borders on pill-popping neurosis about to morph into psychosis.
My mashup follows youth from early pre-puberty individuals to young adults engaged in an orgy of drugs, sex, and rock and roll finally ending with their inevitable downfall.
We witness when they wake up from their drug induced stupor and realize they are now the property of..well you know.. he doesn’t exist right???

Playing tune wearing a ‘coon’ hat is rare especially on a hot sunny day in July however, this trumpet player wearing bright red plastic sunglasses delighted the Place Heineken (Beer Tent) bringing cheers from the appreciative crowd while doing a brief solo.
The 2016 Montreal International Jazz Festival is now history however, memories of that event continue and my pictures taken remind me of the fun that I had enjoying great music and meeting wonderful people.
This picture of that musician in his distinct racoon “Davy Crockett” hat certainly brings a chuckle although his band, the Gruv’n Brass, certainly played some groovy music.

Beware of moon, although humans have ‘conquered’ it when Neil Armstrong set foot on it in 1969 it may be not as harmless as believed.
My mashup has all the elements of a Hollywood “Doomsday” visiting mankind because of our experimentation with what we think we can handle, believing we know it and yet really haven’t a clue about it.
The universe is massive and our moon just a tiny speck still an unknown to us even after centuries observing it shining on Earth keeping its secret danger lurking ready to destroy those foolish failing to give it proper respect.
