In the not too distant future -Earth is controlled by super Corporations, the largest of which is XS BS CORP – that sponsors the most popular TV program “Earth Idol”, where the weekly winner is determined by an online vote. When one horrible song keeps on winning everyone from the XSBS Sponsors to the current idol to the hopeful participants -believes the show to be rigged for different reasons. It turns out that a comet from Planet Haley has picked up the transmission and “Body Party (the winning song) is only thing that stops the constantly bickering Haliens from killing each other. So they vote en masse once a week (Tuesday at 9 PM PST). This leads to a most revealing First Contact where both civilizations must decide to trust one another -as one out of control comet hurtles towards Earth -Will the power of music realize peace in time.
In this amazing twist of fate: Dave and wife Karen were visitng two cousins in Israel (izzy Goedel and Dahlia Kovalsky) moslty in Tel Aviv -and at dinner the night before they were going to Jerusalem, cousin Izzy mentioned to Dave that he had another cousin living in Jerusalem that he should look up. He was a world-class horn player and sure enough these two cousins with the same great -grandfather Lipa Perlstein had an amazing “jam’ session. Shmulik Kovalsky is an amazing talent who has mastered the “wind-controller” (a midi-controller that plays any sound from a module with the wind of a reed instrument). Their mutual great-grandfather had a band back in 1923 in Poland – that played Movie houses before talkies -so witness and enjoy The Pearlstein Family Orchestra version 2.0.
And all of this is possible because for once Dave had his fancy digital camera properly charged and lovely wife Karen willing to film the proceedings. Thanks Karen, great job.

This is a movement to ignite pride in who we are as part of the bigger mix of all cultures – all contributing to the sciences, to the arts, to the great diversity of humans – how to encourage instead of discourage. It is all designed to focus on the self-evident beliefs in our Declaration of Independence, and celebrate “who cares who got here first!”
It is a video/song rant about an “Inequality Zoo” designed to “promote the vote” towards establishing a true majority rule.
