A possible new job for Charles JohnsonPosted: June 25, 2011
Charles Johnson clearly needs a new career. His musician days are over, his web design career is toast and his blog is a joke. It’s a safe bet to assume still has his Jazz guitar playing talents. If so, he’s in luck! A program has begun in Colombia, where American Jazz musicians are giving lessons to youths in the city of Medellin.
The Americans, all students of the prestigious Julliard School, UMass Amherst, and the University of New Orleans, arrived in Medellin Wednesday where 45 children, aged 15 to 18, are learning the fundamental melodies, rhythms, and improvisation styles of jazz music.
As John “Freddy” Vahos, a director of the camp told Colombia Reports, the program’s objective is to “create more sensible, culturally engaged people, while keeping them off of the streets.” Freddy added that students from low class areas “don’t have to worry about gangs, violence, or drugs” when they are participating in extracurricular music programs or band camps.
The program was made possible by U.S. and Colombian social programs, the Colombo Americano language institute and Medellin’s Music School Network that is internationally recognized for using music to keep children out of gangs.
Charles should seriously consider participating in this program. He can utilize his skills, make some money and do some good. Currently he makes a fool out of himself by peddling conspiracy theories. Chucky Dumpty’s newest theory is that blogger Jim Hoft is the editor of the Fox Nation website!
Charles, go down to Colombia and do some good. You’re really making a fool of yourself. Grow up and do something production. You’re 58, it’s still not too late to be a man.
