Getting into podcast mode

Well truth be told I have been neglecting my first born for quite awhile but I have been busy. In October 2005 I created F1 Prospects.Com to write about my other love, open wheel formula racing and all the young guns around the world trying to make it to Formula 1. Ya I know, quite the change but I have been a racing nut for almost as long as I have been a music nut and I just felt like doing something to support young racing drivers. As a result of course my writing for the Rock and Roll Report dropped off dramatically but I have not abandoned rock and roll for the race track as I am currently putting together the pieces for creating my first podcast called F1 Prospects Radio. How does this relate to rock and roll you ask? Well one of the things I plan to do is feature indie rock and roll (podcast safe of course) prominently in the podcast. The current plan, which is always in flux would be to feature a song at the beginning and end of the podcast. Eventually I would like to move those tunes over to a dedicated Rock and Roll Report podcast as I wouldn’t be able to play the whole thing at F1 Prospects so the two podcasts would hopefully feed off each other.

I am currently getting the equipment together and working on my format but if you are interested in submitting your music to be featured and your are not affiliated with the RIAA in any way contact me at and we’ll see what can be arranged.

Hopefully this will breath new life into the Rock and Roll Report and allow me to get my rock and roll and racing fix all at the same time. Let the adventure begin!

    Dan ces are born thanks to the group’s ties: in rituals, the Shaman assumes the role of main actor and through his knowledge and magic, gets to bring together the world they ignore (spiritual world) and the one they know (material world). Getting in a visionary trance, the Shaman tries to take control of nature and covers himself with animal hides to reach the spirit of the unknown. Hunting has to be favourable, so with gestures and rhythmic convulsions, a ritual dance is created, while the rest of the group is watching expectant and follows him with rhythmic moves and pitiful voices which have a kind of spiritual tone. This could perfectly be an image of the ritual dance our ancestors used to practice, whose style, with time, would be polished. Probably, they had different kinds of rites (just like today’s primitive tribes) concerning the introduction to hunting, wishes for good weather or the unknown world; other rites devoted to fertility, puberty, family unit ties or even funeral dances, dances to celebrate a good hunting, etcetera. Together with dancing, musical instruments are born, too. Probably, human voice was the first one; afterwards, men began to use percussion, air, etcetera.

    Nowadays, in our modern world, dance and music are the strongest ties among humanity, just like an ancestral spiritual aura, with no distinctions of race or nations. Ve


    A través de los lazos del grupo nace la Danza: El Chamán asume el papel de actor principal en el ritual, uniendo, con su conocimiento y su magia el mundo desconocido (espiritual) con el mundo conocido (material). El chamán, en trance visionario, intenta dominar a la naturaleza y se cubre de pieles de animales para apoderarse del espíritu de lo desconocido, la caza tiene que ser propicia, a trevés de gestos y convulsiones rítmicas se crea una danza ritual, mientras el grupo sigue expectante y al unísono con movimientos rítmicos y entrelazando voces lastimeras con un tono espiritual. Esta podría ser perfectamente una imagen de danza ritual practicada por nuestros ancestros, que seguramente se refinaría con el paso del tiempo. Es posible que tuvieran diferentes ritos ( como las tribus primitivas actuales ) de iniciación a la caza, a la fertilidad, a la pubertad, lazos de union familiar, augurios al buen tiempo, danzas funerarias, al mundo desconocido, danzas festivas por una buena cacería etc. Con la danza, nacen también los instrumentos de música, posiblemente la voz humana fué el primero, después vino la percución, el aire, etc.

    Actualmente en el mundo moderno como un halo espiritual ancestral, la danza y la música son los lazos que más unen a la humanidad sin distinciones de razas y pueblos. Verdejo
