Yellow River – Blue Grass


Cantonese and bluegrass go together like beer and Sichuan food. It all started in Hainan last Christmas when I met some 86 year-old-geezers playing the saxophone near the beach. One of them had started only two years earlier and he was great!

That’s when I decided to take up the banjo, not realising how incredibly heavy this light-looking instrument is. But I love banjo and I love Cantonese, so here we go!

    “…the passive onrolkeos unable to intervene.”It should have read “…the passive (cowardly) onrolkeos, UNWILLING to intervene.” It’s a choice folks.I witnessed something similar many years ago, it was broad daylight, Sunday afternoon, naked bloody woman, man dragging her against her will, large Canadian city.There were tons of “passive” onrolkeos, families, fathers & mothers with their children sitting in their cars watching but not one person tried to help until we got there.Make no mistake, the cowards will let you be murdered right in front of them and not lift a finger or raise a voice.That was the day I lost all faith in humanity. It scarred me for life . I am a card carrying misanthrope now but at least I can say I intervened for someone in distress.Be prepared to defend yourself because you can’t count on anyone else to help you.
