“Papa Don’t Take No Mess” is a funk song performed by James Brown. An edited version of the song released as a two-part single in 1974 was Brown’s final number one R&B hit and peaked at number thirty-one on the Hot 100. The full-length version, nearly 14 minutes long, appeared on the double album Hell.” Read more…
.I was looking for something else and I found this, wow… Sneak a peek at the true character of The Hardest Working Man In Showbusiness, as he was called in life. (James Brown passed away on December 25, 2006, after a weeklong battle with pneumonia. He was 73 years old. James Brown is unquestionably one of the most influential musical pioneers of the last half-century.)
There’s an ongoing piano solo by the man himself weaving through the last part (around 6:18) of the song. It’s a window into his soul if you will; It’s totally abstract: sometimes atonal, sometimes nonsensical, sometimes automatistic, always out of the box and always good. He’s much more playful than I ever thought he’d be, it’s crazy good. I recommend earphones…
I’m not certain what it means, I’m not an expert in Jive Culture, but I’m pretty sure it means that Papa won’t take crap off of anyone.
“Definition of Spring”
“Spring is one of the four temperate seasons. Spring marks the transition from winter into summer.”
“According to the astronomical definition, spring begins on the Vernal Equinox (usually March 21 in the Northern Hemisphere, and September 22 in the Southern Hemisphere), and lasts until the summer solstice (usually June 21 in the Northern Hemisphere and December 21 in the Southern Hemisphere). In 2009, Spring fell on March 20th in the Northern Hemisphere. According to this definition, therefore, the day called Midsummer’s Day in some traditions is the first day of Summer. Meteorologists generally define the beginning of spring as March 21 in the Northern Hemisphere and September 21 in the Southern Hemisphere.” read more from Wikipedia…

“In the Northern Hemisphere spring officially begins at 7:44 a.m. ET on Friday, March 20, 2009—the vernal equinox, or spring equinox [ (see vernal equinox pictures). ]
“But don’t be fooled by the old rumor that on the vernal equinox the length of day is exactly equal to the length of night.” read more from NationalGeographic.Com
