And now for something totally strange. Here is "Weird Al" Yankovic's tribute to Bob Dylan. Please notice that every line is a palindrome.

Bob
by Al Yankovic

I, man, am regal - a German am I
Never odd or even
If I had a hi-fi
Madam, I'm Adam
Too hot to hoot
No lemons, no melon
Too bad I hid a boot
Lisa Bonet ate no basil
Warsaw was raw
Was it a car or a cat I saw?

Rise to vote, sir
Do geese see God?
"Do nine men interpret?" "Nine men," I nod
Rats live on no evil star
Won't lovers revolt now?
Race fast, safe car
Pa's a sap
Ma is as selfless as I am
May a moody baby doom a yam?

Ah, Satan sees Natasha
No devil lived on
Lonely Tylenol
Not a banana baton
No "x" in "Nixon"
O, stone, be not so
O Geronimo, no minor ego
"Naomi," I moan
"A Toyota's a Toyota"
A dog, a panic in a pagoda

Oh no! Don Ho!
Nurse, I spy gypsies - run!
Senile felines
Now I see bees I won
UFO tofu
We panic in a pew
Oozy rat in a sanitary zoo
God! A red nugget! A fat egg under a dog!
Go hang a salami, I'm a lasagna hog

Watch the video here.

Yep, I think so too.

Here's one of my favorite songs from Blues Traveler, featuring the kick-butt harmonica playing of John Popper.

Blues Traveler - Hook Lyrics


It doesn't matter what I say
So long as I sing with inflection
That makes you feel I'll convey
Some inner truth or vast reflection
But I've said nothing so far
And I can keep it up for as long as it takes
And it don't matter who you are
If I'm doing my job then it's your resolve that breaks

Because the hook brings you back
I ain't tellin' you no lie
The hook brings you back
On that you can rely

There is something amiss
I am being insincere
In fact I don't mean any of this
Still my confession draws you near
To confuse the issue I refer
To familiar heroes from long ago
No matter how much Peter loved her
What made the Pan refuse to grow

Was that the hook brings you back
I ain't tellin' you no lie
The hook brings you back
On that you can rely

Suck it in suck it in suck it in
If you're Rin Tin Tin or Anne Boleyn
Make a desperate move or else you'll win
And then begin
To see
What you're doing to me this MTV is not for free
It's so PC it's killing me
So desperately I sing to thee
Of love
Sure but also rage and hate and pain and fear of self
And I can't keep these feeling on the shelf
I've tried well no in fact I lied
Could be financial suicide but I've got too much pride inside
To hide or slide
I'll do as I'll decide and let it ride till until I've died
And only then shall I abide by this tide
Of catchy little tunes
Of hip three minute ditties
I wanna bust all your ballons
I wanna burn of all your cities to the ground
But I've found
I will not mess around
Unless I play then hey
I will go on all day
Hear what I say
I have a prayer to pray
That's really all this was
And when I'm feeling stuck and need a buck
I don't rely on luck because

Because the hook brings you back
I ain't tellin' you no lie
The hook brings you back
On that you can rely

You can watch this one here.

haha that's hilarious miaree, i used to be sort-of obsessed with that song at a period in my life...for some reasons it seemed to have a profound message that was belied by it's tongue-in-cheek inference...it was one of those songs that i listened to, and then tried to explain the "message" to people who would then say "hmm i think you read too much into it".

anyway me and my friend by the same name used to sing it together, especially the really fast part near the end which I imagine we could still perform flawlessly.

I'm on a roll, I'm on a roll this time
I feel my luck could change
Kill me Sarah, kill me again with love
It's gonna be a glorious day

Pull me out of the aircrash
Pull me out of the lake
I'm your superhero
We are standing on the edge

The Head of State has called for me by name
But I don't have time for him
It's gonna be a glorious day
I feel my luck could change

Pull me out of the aircrash
Pull me out of the lake
I'm your superhero
We are standing on the edge

Jan lays down and wrestles in her sleep
Moonlight spills on comic books
And superstars in magazines
An old friend calls and tells us where to meet
Her plane takes off from Baltimore
And touches down on Bourbon Street

We sit outside and argue all night long
About a god we've never seen
But never fails to side with me
Sunday comes and all the papers say
Ma Teresa's joined the mob
And happy with her full time job

Do do do do doo do

Am I alive or thoughts that drift away?
Does summer come for everyone?
Can humans do as prophets say?
And if I die before I learn to speak
Can money pay for all the days I lived awake
But half asleep?

Do do do do doo do (2 times)

A life is time, they teach us growing up
The seconds ticking killed us all
A million years before the fall
You ride the waves and don't ask where they go
You swim like lions through the crest
And bathe yourself on zebra flesh

I've been downhearted baby,
I've been downhearted baby,
Ever since the day we met

He will be missed.


By the way, Buddie, did I understand you to say above that you don't like Sting?????

OK, I didn't know until today, that this song was written by Carole King/Gerry Goffin.

Anyway, instead of posting a lame Monkees video, I found the one below. It's amazing how the video for one song, goes perfectly with music and lyrics of another!


Pleasant Valley Sunday



The local rock group down the street
Is trying hard to learn their song
They seranade the weekend squire
who just came out to mow his lawn

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Charcoal burning everywhere
Rows of houses that are all the same
And no one seems to care

See Mrs. gray she's proud today
because her roses are in bloom
Mr. green he's so serene
he's got a TV in every room

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Here in status symbol land
Mothers complain about how hard life is
And the kids just don't understand

Creature comfort goals
They only numb my soul
and make it hard for me to see
My thoughts all seem to stray
to places far away
I need a change of scenery

Ta ta ta...

Another pleasant valley sunday
Charcoal burning everywhere
Another pleasant valley sunday
Here in status symbol land

Another pleasant valley sunday...

"In the end, only kindness matters."

You got my attention again!

I LOVE being introduced to new music! I have not heard of him before!

I like him! He is clever as all get-out! I like his sound and his sense of humor!

Thanks, buddie! I will be watching his videos!


Like this one a lot:

Truck Got Stuck



He is very tongue-in-cheek!

He reminds me a lot of Arlo Guthrie!

NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS LYRICS

"People Ain't No Good"

People just ain't no good
I think that's welll understood
You can see it everywhere you look
People just ain't no good

We were married under cherry trees
Under blossom we made pour vows
All the blossoms come sailing down
Through the streets and through the playgrounds

The sun would stream on the sheets
Awoken by the morning bird
We'd buy the Sunday newspapers
And never read a single word

People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good

Seasons came, Seasons went
The winter stripped the blossoms bare
A different tree now lines the streets
Shaking its fists in the air
The winter slammed us like a fist
The windows rattling in the gales
To which she drew the curtains
Made out of her wedding veils

People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good at all

To our love send a dozen white lilies
To our love send a coffin of wood
To our love let aal the pink-eyed pigeons coo
That people they just ain't no good
To our love send back all the letters
To our love a valentine of blood
To our love let all the jilted lovers cry
That people they just ain't no good

It ain't that in their hearts they're bad
They can comfort you, some even try
They nurse you when you're ill of health
They bury you when you go and die
It ain't that in their hearts they're bad
They'd stick by you if they could
But that's just bullsh*t
People just ain't no good

People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good at all


Listen.

Slide and Smother..
I can't believe I've never heard
of Sunny Landreth .. I've now
checked out all his you tubes.
Thanks Flux btw your tag line also
strikes a 'cord' :-)

Mahalla thank you for playing Coldplay..
I especially Love Yellow and Fix You
and have been thinking of listening to
them both in recent days :-)

:-) Thankie..
Do you know Chris wrote Fix You
for Gweneth after her Dad died ?
How sweet is that :-)
I watched the video and I think
it's filmed in the tunnel
where Princes Dianna crashed..
They live in London so Paris is
next door.. I remember watching
sooo much footage about the car
crash.. That would be a bonus..

I LOVE THIS THREAD!!!!



I LOVE Frank & MR!!!!! I hadn't listened to "Strange Dreams" in a long time......since months ago, when another conversation on this very thread about guitar gods got me started on YouTube!


I also did not know about Landreth. Looks like I will be listening to youtube for a while tonight, as well!!! TY, flux!


And I SO love coldplay! And yes, those two are also my favorites of their songs, buddie!

I was a little slow to warm up to them, but now....well, I just love them to pieces!!!


Hugs, everybody!

Everybody's talking and no one says a word

Everybody's making love and no one really cares

There's nazis in the bathroom just below the stairs.
Always something happening and nothing going on

There's always something happening cooking and nothing in the pot

They're starving back in China so finish what you got.
They're starving back in China so finish what you got.
Nobody told me there'd be days like these

Nobody told me there'd be days like these

Nobody told me there'd be days like these

Strange days indeed
strange days indeed.
Everybody's runnin' and no one makes a move

Everyone's a winner
and no one seems to lose.
There's a little yellow idol to the north of Katmandu.
Everybody's flying and no one leaves the ground

Everybody's crying and no one makes a sound.
There's a place for us in movies you just gotta stay around.

Nobody told me there'd be days like these

Nobody told me there'd be days like these

Nobody told me there'd be days like these

Strange days indeed
most peculiar
Mama.
Everybody's smoking and no one's getting high

Everybody's flying and never touch the sky

There's Ufo's over New York and I ain't too surprised.
Nobody told me there'd be days like these

Nobody told me there'd be days like these

Nobody told me there'd be days like these

Strange days indeed
most peculiar. Mama.

if i told you he was your brother
you'd reminisce then you would go about your day
if said you oughta give him some of your water
you'd shake your canteen and walk away

and the perception that divides you from him, is a lie
for some reason you never asked why
this is not a black white world
you can't afford to believe in your side

this is not a black and white world
to be alive i say the colors must swirl
and i believe that maybe today
we will all get to appreciate
the beauty of grey

if i told you she was your mother
would you analyze the situation and be gone?
if i said you oughta give her some of your water
your eyes would light up like the dawn

and the perception that divides you from her, is a lie
for some reason we never asked why
this is not a black white world
you can't afford to believe in your side

this is not a black and white world
to be alive i say the colors must swirl

we will all get to appreciate

Thank you SC :-)

I love this little video it
has home footage ..

Mull of Kyntyre
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzs5aOYr8B4&feature=related

Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre oh mist rolling
in from, the sea my desire, is
always to be here, Oh Mull of Kintyre

Far have I travelled, and much
have I seen. Dark distant mountains
with valleys of green Past painted
deserts, the sun sets on fire
As he carries me home to, the Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre oh mist rolling in
from, the sea My desire, is always
to be here, Oh Mull of Kintyre

Sweep through the heather, like deer
in the glen Carry me back to the days
I knew then Nights when we sang like
a heavenly choir. Of the life and the
times of, the Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre oh mist rolling in from,
the sea My desire, is always to be here,
Oh Mull of Kintyre

Smiles in the sunshine and tears in
the rain Still take me back where my
memories remain. Flickering embers
grow higher and higher . As they
carry me back to, the Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre oh mist rolling in
from, the sea My desire, is always
to be here, Oh Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre oh mist rolling in
from, the sea My desire, is always
to be here, Oh Mull of Kintyre

Reminds Me So Muuuch of Cape Breton :-)

Welcome to Atmospheres, the program for songs and music videos that speak to the way we are feeling here at UC.

I'm your host for tonight, Second Wind.

The inspirations for the songs I have chosen are, of course, primarily my thoughts and emotions of Saturday However, these thoughts were primarily influenced by the general atmosphere here at UC, relative to our varied experiences in common, as well as the current "expectant", shall we say, vibe here of late.

It is my hope that you will enjoy the songs I have selected for you all tonight.


I'm starting the program off by acknowledging the intense feelings expressed by some of you, that there is.......

Something In The Air......

Call out the instigators
Because there's something in the air
We've got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution's here
And you know it's right
And you know that it's right

We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together now

Lock up the streets and houses
Because there's something in the air
We've got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution's here
And you know it's right
And you know that it's right

We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together now

Hand out the arms and ammo
We're going to blast our way through here
We've got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution's here
And you know it's right
And you know that it's right

We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together
Now




......but who knows?
Could it be Something's Coming?


Could be!
Who knows?
There's something due any day
I will know right away
Soon as it shows
It may come cannonballing
Down through the sky
Gleam in its eye
Bright as a rose

Who knows?
It's only just out of reach
Down the block, on a beach
Under a tree
I got a feeling there's a miracle due
Gonna come true
Coming to me

Could it be? Yes, it could.
Something's coming, something good
If I can wait
Something's coming
I don't know what it is
But it is gonna be great!

With a click, with a shock
Phone'll jingle, door'll knock
Open the latch
Something's coming
Don't know when, but it's soon
Catch the moon, one-handed catch

Around the corner
Or whistling down the river
Come on, deliver
To me

Will it be? Yes, it will
Maybe just by holding still
It'll be there
Come on, something
Come on in, don't be shy
Meet a guy, pull up a chair
The air is humming
And something great is coming

Who knows?
It's only just out of reach
Down the block, on a beach
Maybe tonight . . .




(Better put this next one one on full screen and crank it UP!!!)

It definitely feels like something's coming In The Air Tonight!

I can feel it coming
In the air tonight
Oh Lord
I've been waiting for this moment
For all my life
Oh Lord
Can you feel it coming
In the air tonight
Oh Lord, Oh Lord

Well if you told me you were drowning
I would not lend a hand
I've seen your face before my friend
But I don't know if you know who I am

Well I was there and I saw what you did
I saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe of that grin
I know where you've been
It's all been a pack of lies

I can feel it coming
In the air tonight
Oh Lord
I've been waiting for this moment
For all my life
Oh Lord, Oh Lord

Well I remember
I remember, don't worry
How could I ever forget?
It's the first time
The last time
We ever met
But I know the reason why
You keep me silenced up
No you don't fool me
Cause the hurt doesn't show
But the pain still grows
It's no stranger to you and me

I can feel it
Coming in the air tonight
Oh Lord
Ive been waiting for this moment
For all my life
Oh Lord, Oh Lord

I can feel it coming in the air
I can feel it coming in the air
I've been waiting for this moment
All my life
Been waiting for this moment
All my life
My life




OK, those are our opening selections for tonight.

On a side note, each one of these three songs can be interpreted in different ways, aside from any "original" context the artists had for them.

An interesting thing hit me about all three songs, bit especially the second and third songs. Listen to them, or just read the lyrics again, from the perspective of someone (like us) who has had a lifetime of weird experiences with "being taken"!!


--------

So, what's "in the air"? What's everybody anticipating?


Maybe what's coming depends on our wishes, desires, and our thoughts?

Could be! Who Knows?

And speaking of hearing a song from a whole new perspective......

I discovered this next piece by serendipity. When I was searching for Alien Abduction Videos, I certainly was not expecting to find this!

It is a mix of parts of an episode of "Unsolved Mysteries" on abductions, parts of the original music video of a Phil Collins Song, and, well, the rest, just watch and see!

Take Me Home!


Take that look of worry
I'm an ordinary man
They don't tell me nothing
So I find out what I can
There's a fire that's been burning
Right outside my door
I can't see, but I feel it
And it helps to keep me warm
So I, I don't mind
No I, I don't mind

Seems so long I've been waiting
Still don't know what for
There's no point escaping
I don't worry anymore
I can't come out to find you
I don't like to go outside
They can turn off my feelings
Like they're turning off a light
But I, I don't mind
No I, I don't mind
Oh I, I don't mind
No I, I don't mind

So take, take me home
'Cause I don't remember
Take, take me home
'Cause I don't remember
Take, take me home
'Cause I don't remember
Take, take me home, oh lord
'Cause I've been a prisoner all my life
And I can say to you

Take that look of worry
Mine's an ordinary life
Working when it's daylight
And sleeping when it's night
I've got no far horizons
I don't wish upon a star
They don't think that I listen
Oh, but I know who they are
And I, I don't mind
No I, I don't mind
Oh I, I don't mind
No I, I don't mind

So take, take me home
'Cause I don't remember
Take, take me home
'Cause I don't remember
Take, take me home
'Cause I don't remember
Take, take me home, oh lord
Well I've been a prisoner all my life
And I can say to you

But I don't remember
Take, take me home...




Ok, that's all for tonight/this morning.

I want to thank our sponsor, Unknown Country and Whitley Strieber, for making this show possible!

I hope you have enjoyed the show. Tune in next time for "Atmospheres", for more "Good & Juicy Music for The Psyche"!!

Sleep tight!

Here's how I think we all feel from time to time:

"Can't get it right today" - Joe Purdy

lyrics:
I just can't seem to get it right today
I just can't seem to get it right today
I just can't seem to get it right today
I guess I'm gonna give up
Oh, I guess I'm gonna give up

It's nearly been a year since he's been gone
And we still sing his goodbye songs
Goodness knows she should move on
But she just can't let him go
No, she just can't let him go

I'm sorry if I made you want to cry
I'm sorry if I made you want to cry
You should know, I never meant to hide
I just hate bringing you down
Oh, I just hate bringing you down

I just can't seem to get it right today
I just can't seem to get it right today
I just can't seem to get it right today
I guess I'm gonna give up
Oh, I guess I'm gonna give up

And I dropped my paintbrush in the dirt
Still remember just how much that hurt
I cut my hand and wait for it to work
But I just couldn't bring him back
No, I just couldn't bring him back

I just can't seem to get it right today
Oh, I just can't seem to get it right today
I just can't seem to get it right today
I guess I'm gonna give up
Oh, I guess I'm gonna give up
Oh I guess I'm gonna give up
Oh I guess I'm gonna give up
Oh I guess I'm gonna give up
Oh I guess I'm gonna give up
Oh Lord I said I guess I'm gonna give up
Oh Lord I said I guess I'm gonna give up


Listen and watch here. And may we all get it right tomorrow.

"I just can't seem to get it right today"



Yeah, Miaree, I certainly feel that way lately.

However, he also says:


"Oh I guess I'm gonna give up
Oh Lord I said I guess I'm gonna give up"



Give up? Not me!

However, I will, as always, pick my battles carefully. And I will always try my best to remind myself that sometimes, you just can't argue your way out of "Catch 22" situations.

And I will also check myself in the mirror each day, and remind myself that not EVERYTHING is ABOUT ME. I will make extra effort to be careful NOT to "read into things", that which is not there.

But I will NOT be "beaten" by those who do not wish me well, whether they are human or alien, or a combination of both.

Moving on.......



I have posted this before, probably more than once, because it's one of my favorite songs, and IMO, one of the most poignant lyrics ever written. I still fantasize about finding a friend or lover who will say these thing to me, and actually mean them, and "show it" in the long run.


Some people stay far away from the door
If there's a chance of it opening up
They hear a voice in the hall outside
And hope that it just passes by

Some people live with the fear of a touch
And the anger of having been a fool
They will not listen to anyone
So nobody tells them a lie

I know you're only protecting yourself
I know you're thinking of somebody else
Someone who hurt you

But I'm not above
Making up for the love
You've been denying you could ever feel
I'm not above doing anything
To restore your faith if I can

Some people see through the eyes of the old
Before they ever get a look at the young
I'm only willing to hear you cry
Because I am an innocent man
I am an innocent man
Oh yes I am

Some people say they will never believe
Another promise they hear in the dark
Because they only remember too well
They heard somebody tell them before

Some people sleep all alone every night
Instead of taking a lover to bed
Some people find that it's easier to hate
Than to wait anymore

I know you don't want to hear what I say
I know you're gonna keep turning away
But I've been there
And if I can survive, I can keep you alive
I'm not above going through it again
I'm not above being cool for a while
If you're cruel to me I'll understand

Some people run from a possible fight
Some people figure they can never win
And although this is a fight I can lose
The accused is an innocent man
I am an innocent man
Oh yes I am
An innocent man

You know you only hurt yourself out of spite
I guess you'd rather be a martyr tonight
That's your decision
But I'm not below
Anybody I know
If theres a chance of resurrecting a love
I'm not above going back to the start
To find out where the heartache began

Some people hope for a miracle cure
Some people just accept the world as it is
But I'm not willing to lay down and die
Because I am an innocent man

I am an innocent man
Oh yes I am
An innocent man


(Billy Joel)


I am most definitely a whole helluva lot like the person he is saying those compassionate and loving words to in this song.

Sadly, I fear that the kind of person who could live up to those words, is probably a rare exception to the rule. Sometimes, compassion for suffering, past or present, is just TOO MUCH WORK.

The Long and Winding Road

The long and winding road
That leads to your door
Will never disappear
Ive seen that road before
It always leads me here
Lead me to you door

The wild and windy night
That the rain washed away
Has left a pool of tears
Crying for the day
Why leave me standing here
Let me know the way

Many times Ive been alone
And many times Ive cried
Any way youll never know
The many ways Ive tried

But still they lead me back
To the long winding road
You left me standing here
A long long time ago
Dont leave me waiting here
Lead me to your door

But still they lead me back
To the long winding road
You left me standing here
A long long time ago
Dont leave me waiting here
Lead me to your door

Beatles

Has our conscience shown?
Has the sweet breeze blown?
Has all the kindness gone?
Hope still lingers on
I dream myself a newfound deity
Sitting alone in New York City
And I don't know why

Are we listening
To hymns of offering?
Have we eyes to see
That love is gathering?
All the words that I've been reading
Have now started the act of bleeding
Into one...into one...

So I walk up on high
And I step to the edge
To see my world below
And I laugh to myself
While the tears roll down
'Cause it's the world I know
Oh it's the world I know

The world is a vampire, sent to drain
secret destroyers, hold you up to the flames
and what do i get, for my pain
betrayed desires, and a piece of the game
even though i know-i suppose i'll show
all my cool and cold-like old job
despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage
then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage
now i'm naked, nothing but an animal
but can you fake it, for just one more show
and what do you want, i want to change
and what have you got
when you feel the same
even though i know-i suppose i'll show
all my cool and cold-like old job
despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage
then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage
tell me i'm the only one
tell me there's no other one
jesus was an only son
tell me i'm the chosen one
jesus was an only son for you
despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage
and i still believe that i cannot be saved

I could paint a picture with a pen
But a song will only scratch the skin
And there are still places I haven't been
Because I know what's in there is already in the air

Oh yeah, there's a storm on the way
There's a storm on the way, alright
There's a storm on the way, uh huh
And it's comin' no matter what I say
(And I come, I come, I come, I come)

Hey, hey, hey, there's truth in the thunder
Love in the lightning, the feeling is frightening
Yeah, isn't it exciting?
I'm something like stormy weather
If I weren't we would never
Huddle together, do I have to tell you
That I'm also the sunlight, that shines shortly after?
I just rain cause I have to, on to another chapter
I wish you lots of laughter
Til the next time you see me
Just remember you need me, I'm the storm coming
(And I come, I come, I come, I come)
Oh C'mon (And I come, I come, I come, I come), c'mon

Run towards the hills to avoid the high flood
I can do a dance that'll make the sky cry blood
Skills provoke, and seals will be broken open
All that's left to do is try my love, wooooooh

When I sing it's a cyclone
I'm writing a raging sea
Searching for a sign of life
Is it safe to say it's me?
Listen to our lives
The wind will whisper the way it is
I am going to happen, what a lovely day it is
Don't ask why
Just live, and, die

***clears lump in throat***

Dang, fortwynt! You have left me breathless and amazed, with my mouth agape and my chin on the floor, I kid you not. SO completely appropriate!

The Collective Soul song is one of my favorites......love, love, love them.

I am going to look on youtube for the other two songs. I know the artists, but I don't think I have heard the songs.

Thank you for sharing these songs.

***WHEW***

:-) I'm glad you enjoyed my choices SW.

Definitely check out the other two, I perceive you will enjoy them. The S.P. one is a little loud and metal-ish, but intense and emotional...the second is just poetically powerful and metaphorically appropriate, in a manner of speaking.

In a very dark place today, thinking of this song.
Aug. 15th, 2001 at approximately 2205Z (6:05 p.m.) a flight of 5 UH60 National Guard (unmarked) helicoptors came over my house almost busting the windows from the west. 20 minutes later 2224Z (6:24 p.m.) another 6 UH60s came over at 3300 ft. They were flying VFR (visual flight rules), not instrument approach.

Sorry they are messing with you, Mahalla.

Been there, done that. Thankfully, it's been a long time. (About 3 years), and I have never had more than a single copter fly over me at the house I have been in since Dec. 2006.

The blackhawks you saw were the copters that overflew me in the past, and hovered, several times, for several minutes; and circled numerous times, super low.

I also had trouble with crop-dusters, both planes and helicopters.

Today is my wedding anniversary, and I am offering a song that always reminds me of my late husband:

When You Say Nothing At All

Alison Krauss & Union Station

It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart
Without saying a word you can light up the dark
Try as I may I could never explain
What I hear when you don't say a thing

The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes sayin' you'll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all

All day long I can hear people talking out loud
But when you hold me near, you drown out the crowd
Old Mr. Webster could never define
What's being said between your heart and mine

The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes sayin' you'll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all

The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes sayin' you'll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all


To listen to the song, go here.

Both are beautiful! I love Allison and Union Station so much!


And "The Prayer" is also a work of art! I have lost some of my interest in Celine, but Andrea gives me chills and brings tears to my eyes!

I also like Celine and Josh Groban's version. The first time I ever heard Josh, was in a performance with her, of that song.


And speaking of Josh:

Don't Give Up, You Are Loved
"In the end, only kindness matters."

And now, for something completely dark......here's a little ditty about "experimentation".......



Cover me when I run
Cover me through the fire
Something knocked me out' the trees
Now I'm on my knees
Cover me, darling please
Monkey, monkey, monkey
Don't you know you're gonna
shock the monkey

Fox the fox
Rat on the rat
You can ape the ape
I know about that
There is one thing you must be sure of
I can't take any more
Darling, don't you monkey with the monkey

Monkey, monkey, monkey
Don't you know you're gonna
shock the monkey

Wheels keep turning
Something's burning
Don't like it but I guess I'm learning

Shock!
Shock!
Shock!
Watch the monkey get hurt!
Monkey

Cover me, when I sleep
Cover me, when I breathe
You throw your pearls before the swine
Make the monkey blind
Cover me, darling please

Monkey
Too much at stake
Monkey
Ground beneath me shake
Monkey
And the news is breaking

Shock!
Watch the monkey get hurt, monkey

Shock the monkey
Shock the monkey
Shock the monkey to life!



Shock The Monkey
"In the end, only kindness matters."

Every official that comes in
Cripples us leaves us maimed
Silent and tamed
And with our flesh and bones
He builds his homes

Southern fist
Rise through tha jungle mist
Clenched to smash power so cancerous
A black flag and a red star
A rising sun loomin' over Los Angeles
Cause for Raza livin in La La
Is like Gaza on to tha dawn of Intifada
Reach for tha lessons tha masked pass on
And seize the metropolis
It's you that it's built on

Everything can change on a new years day
As everything changed on a new years day
War within a breath
It's land or death

Their existence is a crime
Their seat their robe their tie
Their land deeds
Their hired guns
They're the crime

Shots heard underground round the rapture
Tha world's eye captured
At last in a Mexican pasture
Tha masked screaming land or death
Within a breath
A war from the depth of time


R.A.T.M.-War Within a Breath
Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?

Galatians 4:16

Easily let's get carried away
Easily let's get married today
Shao Lin shouted a rose
From his troat
Everything must go
A lickin' stick is thicker
When you break it to show
Everything must go

The story of a woman on the morning of a war
Remind me if you will exactly what we're fighting for

Calling calling for something in the air
Calling calling I know you must be there

Easily let's get caught in a wave
Easily we won't get caught in a cave
Shao Lin's shakin' for the sake
Of his soul-Everything must go
Lookin' mighty tired of
All the things that you own
Everything must go

I can't tell you who to idolize
You think it's almost over
But it's only on the rise
Calling calling
For something in the air
Calling calling I know you must be there

The story of a woman on the morning of a war
Remind me if you will exactly what we're fighting for

Throw me to the wolves
Because there's order in the pack
Throw me to the sky
Because I know I'm coming back

Shao Lin's shakin' for the sake
Of his soul-Everything must go
Lookin' mighty tired of
All the things that you own
Everything must go

The story of a woman on the morning of a war
Remind me if you will exactly what we're fighting for

Calling calling for something in the air
Calling calling I know you must be there

I don't want to be your little research monkey boy
The creature that I am is only going to destroy

Throw me to the wolves
Because there's order in the pack
Throw me to the sky
Because I know I'm coming back


Easily---Red Hot Chili Peppers
Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?

Yeah! Chili Peppers!!!! That is one of my favorite songs, from my favorite RHCP album!

Another of my favorites from that album is:



Velvet Glove


Close to my skin
I'm falling in
Someone who's been

Sittin' by the phone
I'm left alone
In another zone

John says to live above hell
My will is well

No one is waiting
For me to fail
My will could sail yeah

It's such a waste to be wasted
In the first place
I want to taste the taste of
Being face to face with common grace
To meditate on the warmest dream
And when I walk alone I listen
To our secret theme

Your solar eyes are like
Nothing I have ever seen
Somebody close
That can see right through
I'd take a fall and you know
That I'd do anything
I will for you

Sailin' for the sun
'Cause there is One
Knows where I'm from

I care for you
I really do I really do

Come closer now
So you can lie
Right by my side

Sit alone in the sun
I wrote a letter to you
Getting over myself

Your solar eyes are like
Nothing I have ever seen
Somebody close
That can see right through
I'd take a fall and you know
That I'd do anything
I will for you

Your solar eyes are like
Nothing I have ever seen
Somebody close
That was made for you
I'd take a fall and you know
That I'd do anything
I will for you

Close to my skin
Someone who's been
I'm a falling in

Disasters are
Just another star
Falling in my yard

John says to live above hell
My will is well

Long to be with
Someone to tell
I love your smell

"In the end, only kindness matters."

Not Ready to Make Nice

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I'm not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I'm still waiting

I'm through with doubt
There's nothing left for me to figure out
I've paid a price
And I'll keep paying

I'm not ready to make nice
I'm not ready to back down
I'm still mad as hell and
I don't have time to go round
and round and round
It's too late to make it right
I probably wouldn't if I could
'Cause I'm mad as hell
Can't bring myself to do what
it is you think I should

I know you said
Can't you just get over it
It turned my whole world around
And I kind of like it

I made my bed and I sleep like a baby
With no regrets and I don't mind sayin'
It's a sad sad story when a mother will
teach her Daughter that she ought to hate
a perfect stranger And how in the world
can the words that I said Send somebody
so over the edge
That they'd write me a letter
Sayin' that I better shut up and sing
Or my life will be over

I'm not ready to make nice
I'm not ready to back down
I'm still mad as hell and
I don't have time to go round and
round and round
It's too late to make it right
I probably wouldn't if I could
'Cause I'm mad as hell
Can't bring myself to do what it
is you think I should

I'm not ready to make nice
I'm not ready to back down
I'm still mad as hell and
I don't have time to go round
and round and round
It's too late to make it right
I probably wouldn't if I could
'Cause I'm mad as hell
Can't bring myself to do what it
is you think I should

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I'm not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I'm still waiting

It’s the same kind of story
That seems to come down from long ago
Two friends having coffee together
When something flies by their window
It might be out on that lawn
Which is wide, at least half of a playing field
Because there’s no explaining what your imagination
Can make you see and feel

Seems like a dream (when your body means nothing)
(they) got me hypnotized

Now it’s not a meaningless question
To ask if they’ve been and gone
I remember a talk about North Carolina
And a strange, strange pond
You see the sides were like glass
In the thick of a forest without a road
And if any man’s ever made that land
Then I think it would’ve showed

That's why it seems like a dream
(they) got me hypnotized

They say there’s a place down in Mexico
Where a man can fly over mountains and hills
And he don’t need an airplane or some kind of engine
And he never will
Now you know it’s a meaningless question to ask If those stories are right
’cause what matters most if the feeling you get
When you’re hypnotized

If it seems like a dream
They got you hypnotized
When your body means nothing
then you're hypnotized......


Hypnotized

.....and another tasty Early-Mac Morsel:

Oh, Well

I can't help it 'bout the shape I'm in
I can't sing, I ain't pretty, and my legs are thin
But don't ask me what I think of you
I might not give the answer that you want me to

Oh, Well

Now, when I talked to God, I knew he'd understand
He said stick by me, and I'll be your guiding hand
But don't ask me what I think of you
I might not give the answer that you want me to

Oh, Well
"In the end, only kindness matters."

A mass of hands press on
the market window
Ghosts of progress
Dressed in slow death
Feeding on hunger
And glaring through the promise
Upon the food that rots
slowly in the aisle

A mass of nameless at the oasis
That hides the graves
beneath the masters hill
Buried for drinking
The rivers water
While shackled to the line
At the empty well

This is the new sound
Just like the old sound
Just like the noose wound
Over the new ground

Listen to the fascist sing
Take hope here
War is elsewhere
You were chosen
This is god's land
Soon well be free
Of blot and mixture
Seeds planted by our
Forefathers hand

A mass of promises
Begin to rupture
Like the pockets
Of the new world kings
Like swollen stomachs
In Appalachia
Like the priests that **** you
As they whisper holy things
A mass of tears have
transformed to stones now
Sharpened on suffering
Woven into slings
Hope lies in the rubble of
this rich fortress
Taking today what
tomorrow never brings

This is the new sound
Just like the old sound
Just like the noose wound
Over the new ground

aint the new sound
just like the old sound
just like the noose wound
over the new ground

aint the new sound
just like the old sound
look at the noose now
over the over the
over the burning ground

Aint it funny how the
factories doors close
Round the time that the
school doors close
Round the time that the
doors of the jail cells
Open up to greet you like the reaper
Aint it funny how the
factories doors close
Round the time that the
school doors close
Round the time that a hundred
thousand jail cells
Open up to greet you like the reaper

This is the new sound
Just like the old sound
Just like the noose wound
Over the new ground

Like ashes in the fall

I spin off and lose my head
Throwing stray a spark instead
Gather strength down in my heel
And dig it in the world I peel

Way down deep within my heart
Lies a soul that's torn apart
Tell me, tell me what your after
I just want to get there faster

I don't live - I inhale
I don't give - I unveil
Don't want to live in your misery
I don't live - I inhale

Sprinkle all my kisses on your head
Stars full of wishes fill our beds
She said, "I'm dead"

All this pain smothers me
Like a bomb that you can't see
Tell me, tell me what your after
I just want to get there faster

I don't live - I inhale
I don't give - I unveil
I don't live - I inhale
I don't live

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sweep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing
Now the old king is dead, long live the king!
One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt, and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
Once you'd go there was never,
never an honest word
That was when I ruled the world

It was the wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldn't believe what I'd become
Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh, who would ever wanna be king

I hear Jerusalem bells were ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs were singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
I know St. Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world


Bridge:
Whoaaa (x4)

Bridge and Chorus mix:
(Whoa...) Here Jerusalem bells were ringing
(Whoa...) Roman Cavalry choirs were singing
(Whoa...) Be my mirror, my sword and shield
(Whoa...) My missionaries in a foreign field
(Whoa...) For some reason I can't explain
(Whoa...) I know St. Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world


Viva La Vida-Coldplay
Love says "I am everything". Wisdom says "I am nothing". Between the two, my life flows.
