*passes*

Well see, let's say I want to post a link for "the real slim shady" by eminem on youtube.

(and sometimes this is a gamble but it usually works)

I would go to google, type in "the real slim shady eminem youtube"

and it generally comes right up with the link to the song, so i just copy and paste that.

Well, duh.....I am really starting to get thick as a brick.

It is really starting to scare me.

I had gotten "better" in that regard for quite a while.

Anyway, yeah, I should have thought of that.

Ahhhh that metallica album reminds me of my first days on the net.

I used to listen to that album all night long...so much so that (though i cant read music or play a guitar) i was able to learn through hearing, the song "nothing else matters", and play a pretty good portion of it on the guitar.

That was the first metallica album i ever listened to...mind you this was around 95-96, after it'd been out quite a while.

Between Metallica, Joan Osborne, and Sublime, that pretty much made up every night of my life. I'd stay up all night long talking on the very first "chat room" i ever chatted on...I just thought it was the greatest thing in the world to sit for hours and talk with people around the world....the internet was the most amazing thing to me in those days....in those days I was not fortwynt, I was "godboy".....here is the very first chat room i ever talked in....of course in those days chat rooms were more like message boards, it wasnt till later they became more like Instant Message format type of thing...you used to have to post, then keep refreshing till you saw a respond...much like this.

talked in a room called "teen scene"....long since abandoned.

I'm a huge Sublime fan, you might have guessed that from my user name. I put a youtube video up of me doing the song "Badfish" but I realized I screwed up the lyrics so I took it down, I still have my rendition of "creep" up by radiohead, that is my big Karoke number, but on the vid I play the guitar with it.. and I just turned 50.
That's ok Brad Nowell would be forty now...man I wish and Bob marley were still around!!

Yes he does :-)

I have not listened to Pete Gabriel
in ages..these lyrics tell me he's
on the right track..least I think
so :-) More than this

More Than This

I woke up and the world outside was dark
All so quiet before the dawn
Opened up the door and walked outside
The ground was cold

I walked until I couldnt walk anymore
To a place Id never been
There was something stirring in the air
In front of me, I could see

More than this
More than this
So much more than this
There is something else there
When all that you had has all gone
And more than this
I stand
Feeling so connected
And Im all there
Right next to you

It started when I saw the ship go down
I saw them struggle in the sea
And suddenly the picture disappears
In front of me

Now were busy making all our busy plans
On foundations built to last
But nothing fades as fast as the future
And nothing clings like the past, until we can see

More than this
More than this
So much more than this
There is something out there
More than this
Its coming through
And more than this
I stand alone and so connected
And Im all there
Right next to you

Oh then its alright
When with every day another bit falls away
Oh but its still alright, alright, alright
And like words together we can make some sense

Much more than this
Way beyond imagination
Much more than this
Beyond the stars
With my head so full
So full of fractured pictures
And Im all there
Right next to you
So much more than this
There is something else there
When all that you had has all gone
And more than this
Im alone
Feeling so connected
And Im all there right next to you

More than this
More than this
More than this

Triumph

(by Devin Townsend)

Calling, it's calling, I can't stay here
...Knowing there's no higher
Going, I've gone for many years...
...Going makes me tired.
And they said it was this and they said...

But it's...

Call for me Jesus, I'm waiting here
Knowing I'm a liar
Knowing I've known more than half my share...
Knowing bade this triumph
...and they said it was this
...and they said it was that

But it's...
WHAT?!?!

Hooray for Dr. Young
Hooray for earth born and son
Hooray the time time has come...
We vanish once again

One word - Collective
Mankind - CONNECTED

Never going to die, we're always gonna live forever... ever... Every day
With my skies of grey. In my fields of green...

I've been all I've been
Only for the ego in me
Hide from the apocalypse around.


A friend introduced me to this artist today, and I particularly liked this song. Since the artist himself is bi-polar, I dedicate the song to graciesmom.

skip to 1:22 if you don't want to hear them ramble.


Wheel gull spin and glide... you've got no place to hide
'Cause you don't need one
All along the lee shore shells lie scattered in my sin
Winking up like shining eyes at me, from the sea
Here is one like sunrise older than you know
It's still lying there where some careless wave
Forgot it long ago
When I awoke this morning
Dove beneath my floating home
Down below her graceful side
In the turning tide
To watch the sea fish roam
And there I heard a story
From the sailors of the Sandra Marie
There's another isle a days' run away from here
It's empty and free
From here to Venezuela nothing more to see
Than a hundred thousand islands
Flung like jewels upon the sea
For you and me

Sunset smells of dinner
Women are calling at me to end my tales
But perhaps I'll see you the next quiet place
I furl my sails

WOW! Thanks for sharing that, Paul!

I read the lyrics before I watched the video, and as I read them, I was thinking, "This is VERY 'David Crosby'-like!"

Then I clicked on the video link, and, voila!

Enjoyed the rambling, as well! CSN (and Y) are still one of my top 10 favorites!

Yes, David has an amazing voice. I think they still hold up well today.

I don't know if this has been posted here.
It's a song I want to learn.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=037uSAIahho

He deals the cards as a meditation
And those he plays never suspect
He doesnt play for the money he wins
He doesnt play for the respect
He deals the cards to find the answer
The sacred geometry of chance
The hidden law of probable outcome
The numbers lead a dance

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But thats not the shape of my heart

He may play the jack of diamonds
He may lay the queen of spades
He may conceal a king in his hand
While the memory of it fades

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But thats not the shape of my heart
Thats not the shape, the shape of my heart

And if I told you that I loved you
Youd maybe think theres something wrong
Im not a man of too many faces
The mask I wear is one
Those who speak know nothing
And find out to their cost
Like those who curse their luck in too many places
And those who smile are lost

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But thats not the shape of my heart
Thats not the shape of my heart

This is for Nancy Lyon!


HANDS



If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we're all OK
And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these

I won't be made useless
I won't be idle with despair
I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear

My hands are small, I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken

Poverty stole your golden shoes
It didn't steal your laughter
And heartache came to visit me
But I knew it wasn't ever after

We'll fight, not out of spite
For someone must stand up for what's right
'Cause where there's a man who has no voice
There ours shall go singing

My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken

In the end only kindness matters
In the end only kindness matters

I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray

My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken

We are never broken
We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's mind
We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's heart
We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's eyes
We are God's hands
We are God's hands


(by Jewel)

Hmm reminds me of my younger years, at least in terms of the drug use, and ever prevalent amounts of prescription drugs thrown at me on a regular basis.

Oh certainly SW...certainly.

I indeed chose to use chemical means to help me escape a life of frayed nerves and high social anxiety...and there were certainly no shortage of folks willing to help me in that particular endeavor.

Only problem is that now, without those substances, I typically have a rough time mustering the resolve to rise above those old feelings...literally having to force myself into situations that make me uncomfortable...I have become quite proficient in this, but the feelings are still there though I may be good at keeping a good poker face.

As I mentioned on the "R.I.P." thread about Michael Jackson, I have had this song on my mind today, relative to Michael's life and career. Even though it's not one of his songs, I dedicate it to his memory, and hope he no longer feels anything like this.


Hero of the Day

Mamma, they try and break me.
The window burns to light the way back home
A light that warms no matter where they've gone
They're off to find the hero of the day
But what if they should fall by someone's wicked way?

Still the window burns, time so slowly turns
Someone there is sighing
Keepers of the flames, do you feel your names?
Do you hear your babies crying?

Mama they try and break me
Still they try and break me

'Scuse me while I tend to how I feel
These things return to me that still seem real
Now deservingly this easy chair
But the rocking's stopped by wheels of despair
Don't want your aid
But the fist I've made for years can't hold or feel
No, I'm not all me
So please excuse me while I tend to how I feel

But now the dreams and waking screams that ever last through the night
So build the wall behind it crawl and hide until it's light
Can you hear your babies crying now?

Still the window burns
Time so slowly turns
And someone there is sighing
Keepers of the flames, can't you feel your names?
Can't you hear your babies crying?

But now the dreams and waking screams that
ever last the night
So build a wall behind it crawl
And hide until it's light
So can't you hear your babies crying now?
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try mama they try
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try Mama they try

OMG, I did not know she had done a cover of this song!!!!!

Of course I like the original Henley version better, but Lisa's version is just too appropriate.





I make my living off the evening news
Just give me something-something I can use
People love it when you lose
They love dirty laundry

Well, I coulda been an actor, but I wound up here
I just have to look good, I don't have to be clear
Come and whisper in my ear
Give us dirty laundry

Kick em when they're up
Kick em when they're down
Kick em when they're up
Kick em when they're down
Kick em when they're up
Kick em when they're down
Kick em when they're up
Kick em all around

We got the bubble-headed-bleach-blonde
Comes on at five
She can tell you 'bout the plane crash with a gleam in her eye
It's interesting when people die-
Give us dirty laundry

Can we film the operation?
Is the head dead yet?
You know, the boys in the newsroom
Got a running bet
Get the widow on the set!
We need dirty laundry

You don't really need to find out what's going on
You don't really want to know just how far it's gone
Just leave well enough alone
Eat your dirty laundry

Kick em when they're up
Kick em when they're down
Kick em when they're up
Kick em when they're down

Kick em when they're up
Kick em when they're down
Kick em when they're stiff
Kick em all around

Dirty little secrets
Dirty little lies
We got our dirty little fingers in everybody's pie
We love to cut you down to size
We love dirty laundry

We can do the innuendo
We can dance and sing
When its said and done we havent told you a thing
We all know that crap is king
Give us dirty laundry!

Kick em when they're up
Kick em when they're down
Kick em when they're up
Kick em when they're down

Kick em when they're up
Kick em when they're down
Kick em when they're up
Kick em when they're down

Golden Momenta


Now if all my golden moments
Could be rolled into one
They would shine just like the sun
For a Summer day
And after it was over
We could have it back again

For striking out the rain (very clean)
And all it really needed
Was the proper point of view

No one's gonna bring me down
No one's gonna stop me now

Now I gathered up my sorrows
And I sold them all for gold
And I gathered up the gold
And I threw it all away
It all went for a good time and a song (come on)
The laughter was like music
It did float my soul along for awhile
And all it really needed
Was the proper point of view

No one's gonna reach me here
No one's gonna know I'm gone

You may think I must be crazy
And I guess you must be right
But I know the way I feel today is out of sight
I do not trust my senses
To remember your name
Without corrective lenses
Things are never twice the same anyway
And all it really needed
Was the proper point of view

No one's gonna bring me down
No one's gonna stop me now
No one's gonna reach me here
No one's gonna know I'm gone

Why does it feel like night today?
Something in here's not right today.
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoia's all I got left
I don't know what stressed me first
Or how the pressure was fed
But I know just what it feels like
To have a voice in the back of my head
It's like a face that I hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face watches every time I lie
A face that laughs every time I fall
(And watches everything)
So I know that when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is hearing me
Right underneath my skin

It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

I know I've got a face in me
Points out all my mistakes to me
You've got a face on the inside too and
Your paranoia's probably worse
I don't know what set me off first but I know what I can't stand
Everybody acts like the fact of the matter is
I can't add up to what you can but
Everybody has a face that they hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face watches every time they lie
A face that laughs every time they fall
(And watches everything)
So you know that when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is watching you too
Right inside your skin

Chorus

The face inside is right beneath your skin

I watch how the moon sits in the sky
On a dark night shining with the light from the sun
The sun doesn't give light to the moon
Assuming the moon's gonna owe it one

It makes me think of how you act to me
You do favors then rapidly
just turn around and start asking me about
Things that you want back from me

I'm sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest

I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head

Maybe someday I'll be just like you, and
Step on people like you do and
Run away all the people I thought I knew
I remember back then who you were
You used to be calm, used to be strong
Used to be generous, but you should've known
That you'd wear out your welcome
Now you see how quiet it is, all alone

I post this for fortwynt......




First, I want to say...

I have been through 3...yes, I said THREE...copies ON VINYL....of the "Pyramid" album.

Unfortunately, unlike several other albums of which I have bought multiple copies, I did not save the original copy, with the original insert with the lyrics. I cannot believe I threw the original (or at least, the insert) away.

The very last verse (or is is a "bridge"?), is all over the internet as being one set of words, which I am CERTAIN is incorrect.

I have been completely anal retentive about lyrics, all my life. So, I cannot believe (and until I can be proved wrong) that I have "mis-remembered" the lyrics.



I am posting what I originally learned. In my opinion, it is much more appropriate to the context and subject of the song; besides, it is the CORRECT lyrics.

Either way....when contemplating the importance of daily events....even the "big" ones.....this concept is important to remember.


(AND, the animations on this video are amazing. He has even made the characters dance in time with the music!)


Voyager/What Goes Up


What goes up, must come down
What must rise, must fall
And what goes on in your life
Is writing on the wall
If all things must fall
Why build a miracle at all
If all things must pass
Even a miracle won't last

What goes up, must come down
What must stand alone?
And what goes on in your mind
Is turning you to stone

If all things must fall
Why build a miracle at all?
If all things must pass
Even a pyramid won't last

How can you be so sure?
How do you know what the earth will endure?
How can you be so sure
That the wonders you've made
In your life won't be seen
By the millions who follow
To be just a sign of defeat?

What goes up, must come down
What goes round, must come round
What's been lost, must be found

Well they say time loves a hero
But only time will tell
If he's real, he's a legend from heaven
If he ain't he was sent here from hell

Hear me well
Seein' ain't always believin'
Just make sure it's the truth that you're seein'
Eyes sometimes lie
They can be real deceivin'

I got an Uncle in Puerto Rico
Spends his days in the sun
His nights in the casinos
He left the States many years ago
Took a fishin' boat to Puerto Rico
Now my aunt, she is sad and lonely
She'll never know that she drove him away As a coward, I admire his courageous ways

Well they say time loves a hero
But only time will tell
If he's real, he's a legend from heaven
If he ain't he was sent here from hell

Some say my uncle, that he's a zero
His life is as a shell, he left it back at Stateside
I'd say he's doin' pretty well without his shell
Bumming 'round the beaches of Puerto Rico

The beauty of the sunrise and sunset
To his friends he wish he could tell
They're at home still runnin' for bells
Better San Juan than that blue collar hell

Well they say time loves a hero
But only time will tell
If he's real, he's a legend from heaven
If he ain't he was sent here from hell

Mine, too, allen!

The version I posted IS the original live version, from the 1978 Waiting For Columbus live LP.

If one doesn't know that album really well, one would not be able to tell that it was live, because the youtube person had to cut it off before it segued into the next song.

It is my favorite Feat album! It is just killer. Every song on it is killer! MAN, do I ever have some good memories around that album!!!

Though all the band were/are talented as hell, I miss Lowell so much!


I've posted quite a few Feat songs here on this here thread!

Tower of Power horns in the background, just great!
I don't think they ever reached that level again once Lowell passed. "Day at the Dog Races" is a special song too. A truly great band.

I saw the "TOP" play twice; once with "War" in the mid-70s, and once with (don't laugh) Huey Lewis & The News! (That's the POWER of love!)

Where you been, flux????


Man, that was TASTY! I have now listened to three of their songs! Egggscellent! I LOVE obscurities!!!



OK....here's a good obscurity for ya'll!

Saw this band in concert (as one of the opening acts) two different times in the early 70s. Mindblowing!

This is the first side of their first album. The sound quality, and the stereo separation, is really excellent.....well, at least, it is on my speakers! (I have 4 speakers hooked up to my computer. Plus, I like to tweak the sound when listening, using windows "Multi-channel Sound Manager".)

Listen to it all. Listen to it more than once. You will like it!

It started with a low light,
Next thing I knew they ripped me from my bed
And then they took my blood type
It left a strange impression in my head.
You know that I was hoping,
That I could leave this
star-crossed world behind
But when they cut me open,
I guess I changed my mind.

And you know I might
Have just flown too far from
the floor this time
Cause they're calling me by my name
And the zipping white light beams
Disregarding bombs and satellites

That was the turning point
That was one lonely night

The storm maker says, "It ain´t so bad"
The dream maker's gonna make you mad
The spaceman says, "Everybody look down
it´s all in your mind"

Well now I´m back at home, and
I´m looking forward to this life I live
You know it´s gonna haunt me
So hesitation to this life I give.
You think you might cross over,
you´re caught between the devil
and the deep blue sea
You better look it over,
Before you make that leap

And you know I´m fine,
But I hear those voices at night sometimes-
They justify my claim,
And the public don´t dwell on my transmission
Cause it wasn´t televised

But, it was the turning point,
Oh what a lonely night

The storm maker says, "It ain´t so bad"
The dream maker's gonna make you mad
The spaceman says, "Everybody look down
it´s all in your mind"

The storm maker says, "It ain´t so bad"
The dream maker's gonna make you mad;
The spaceman says, "Everybody look down
it´s all in your mind"

My global position systems
are vocally addressed
They say the Nile used to
run from East to West,
They say the Nile used to run...
From East to West.

I´m fine
But I hear those voices at night
Sometime...

The storm maker says, "It ain´t so bad"
The dream maker's gonna make you mad
The spaceman says, "Everybody look down
it´s all in your mind"
The star maker says, "It ain´t so bad"
The dream maker's gonna make you mad;
The spaceman says, "Everybody look down
it´s all in your mind"

It´s all in my mind
it´s all in my mind

This song fits my mood tonight: Who Will Answer?

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!, Hallelujah!

From the canyons of the mind,
We wander on and stumble blindly
Through the often-tangled maze
Of starless nights and sunless days,
While asking for some kind of clue
Or road to lead us to the truth,
But who will answer?

Side by side two people stand,
Together vowing, hand-in-hand
That love's imbedded in their hearts,
But soon an empty feeling starts
To overwhelm their hollow lives,
And when they seek the hows and whys,
Who will answer?

On a strange and distant hill,
A young man's lying very still.
His arms will never hold his child,
Because a bullet running wild
Has struck him down. And now we cry,
"Dear God, Oh, why, oh, why?"
But who will answer?

High upon a lonely ledge,
a figure teeters near the edge,
And jeering crowds collect below
To egg him on with, "Go, man, go!"
But who will ask what led him
To his private day of doom,
And who will answer?

(Chorus)

If the soul is darkened
By a fear it cannot name,
If the mind is baffled
When the rules don't fit the game,
Who will answer? Who will answer? Who will answer?
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!, Hallelujah!

In the rooms of dark and shades,
The scent of sandalwood pervades.
The colored thoughts in muddled heads
Reclining in the rumpled beds
Of unmade dreams that can't come true,
And when we ask what we should do,
Who... Who will answer?

'Neath the spreading mushroom tree,
The world revolves in apathy
As overhead, a row of specks
Roars on, drowned out by discotheques,
And if a secret button's pressed
Because one man has been outguessed,
Who will answer?

Is our hope in walnut shells
Worn 'round the neck with temple bells,
Or deep within some cloistered walls
Where hooded figures pray in halls?
Or crumbled books on dusty shelves,
Or in our stars, or in ourselves,
Who will answer?

(Repeat Chorus Below)

If the soul is darkened
By a fear it cannot name,
If the mind is baffled
When the rules don't fit the game,
Who will answer? Who will answer? Who will answer?
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!, Hallelujah!

This one is for fortwynt.

I rarely buy CDs anymore, but I plan to go out and by eminem's new CD, in your honor.



BEAUTIFUL


Lately I've been hard to reach
I've been too long on my own
Everybody has a private world
Where they can be alone
Are you calling me?
Are you trying to get through?
Are you reaching out for me?
I'm reaching out for you

I'm just so fin' depressed
I just can seem to get out this slump
If I could just get over this hump
But I need something to pull me out this dump
I took my bruises, took my lumps
Fell down and I got right back up
But I need that spark to get psyched back up
In order for me to pick that mic back up

I don't know how or why or when
I ended up in this position I'm in
I'm starting to feel distant again
So I decided just to pick this pen
Up and tried to make an attempt to vent
But I just can't admit or come to grips
With the fact that I may be done with rap
I need a new outlet

I know some s**t's so hard to swallow
And I just can't sit back and wallow
In my own sorrow, but I know one fact
I'll be one tough act to follow
One tough act to follow
One tough act to follow
Here today, gone tomorrow
But you have to walk a thousand miles

In my shoes, just to see
What it's like, to be me
I'll be you, let's trade shoes
Just to see what I'd be like to
Feel your pain, you feel mine
Go inside each other's mind
Just to see what we find
Look at s**t through each other's eyes

But don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful
They can all get f'd.
Just stay true to you
Don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful
They can all get f'dd.
Just stay true to you

I think I'm starting to lose my sense of humor
Everything is so tense and gloom
I almost feel like I gotta check
the temperature in the room
just as soon as I walk in
It's like all eyes on me
So I try to avoid any eye contact
Cause if I do that then it opens a door to conversation, like I want that
I'm not looking for extra attention
I just want to be just like you
Blend in with the rest of the room
Maybe just point me to the closest restroom
I don't need f'ing man servant
Tryin' to follow me around, and wipe my a**
Laugh at every single joke I crack
And half of them ain't even funny like
Ahh Marshall, you're so funny man, you should be a comedian, g** d***
Unfortunately I am
I just hide behind the tears of a clown
So why don't you all sit down
Listen to the tale I'm about to tell
Hell, we don't have to trade our shoes
And you don't have to walk no thousand miles

In my shoes, just to see
What it's like, to be me
I'll be you, let's trade shoes
Just to see what it'd be like to
Feel your pain, you feel mine
Go inside each other's mind
Just to see what we find
Look at s**t through each other's eyes

But don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful
They can all get f'd
Just stay true to you
Don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful
They can all get f'd
Just stay true to you

Nobody asked for life to deal us
With these bulls**t hands they've delt
We have to take these cards ourselves
And flip them, don't expect no help
Now I could have either just
Sat on my a** and pissed and moaned
But take this situation in which I'm placed in
And get up and get my own

I was never the type of kid
To wait by the door and pack his bags
Or sat on the porch and hoped and prayed
For his dad to show up who never did
I just wanted to fit in
Every single place
Every school I went
I dreamed of being that cool kid
Even if it meant acting stupid
Aunt Edna always told me
Keep making that face, it'll get stuck like that

Meanwhile I'm just standing there
Holding my tongue, trying to talk like "this"
Till I stuck my tongue on the frozen stop sign pole at 8 years old
I learned my lesson then, cause
I wasn't tryin to impress my friends no more

But I already told you my whole life story
Not just based on my description
Cause where you see it from where you're sitting
It's probably 110% different
I guess we would have to walk a mile
In each other's shoes, at least
What size you wear? I wear 10s
Let's see if you can fit your feet

In my shoes, just to see
What it's like, to be me
I'll be you, let's trade shoes
Just to see what it'd be like to
Feel your pain, you feel mine
Go inside each other's minds
Just to see what we find
Look at s**t through each other's eyes

But don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful
They can all get f'd
Just stay true to you
Don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful
They can all get f'd
Just stay true to you

Lately I've been hard to reach
I've been too long on my own
Everybody has a private world
Where they can be alone
Are you calling me?
Are you trying to get through?
Are you reaching out for me
I'm reaching out for you

Yea... To my babies. Stay strong.
Daddy will be home soon
And to the rest of the world,
God gave you them shoes to fit you
So put 'em on and wear 'em
And be yourself man, be proud of who you are
Even if it sounds corny,
Don't ever let no one tell you, you ain't beautiful





God, that is an amazing song.......




and I am so freakin' sad.

I love my Papa.

Although I have mentioned elsewhere as to Jon Anderson, with his transcendental romanticism and positive consciousness lyrics, being a mentor of mine, it is Papa that is my favorite musical artist of all time. Mr. Papathanassiou that is. Otherwise known as Vangelis, middle name aptly that of Odyssey.

Back in the day, my musical collection was once comprised – (estimating here) – of hundreds or more of CDs. For a brief while, after the fall of '04 I had zip. By the summer of 2007, I had re-acquired much of what I had lost due to my stupid impulsiveness, and am still re-collecting, losing some, gaining others, thanks to used-record shops in and around my area, where even hard-to-find CDs can be found for a few bucks.

My eclectic taste in music ranges in and out of many genres and eras, such as techno-tribal (e.g. Deep Forest), ethnic fusion, electro-acoustic (e.g. Tangerine Dream), World, Bossa Nova, back to Doo Wop and through to even 1930s' ditties.

Save for country-pop, which is the devil's music in my opinion.

Yet, throughout, it is Vangelis that reigns supreme over them all, weaving his spellbinding cast upon me high atop his podium surrounded by synthesizers. Although I love all his albums, the following are my favorites, my recommendations, my capsule reviews...

1983, CHINA ****/*****

Your passport is required for this one. “Chung Kuo”: close your eyes, and end up in the East. “The Long March”: delicate and dainty piano piece. “The Tao Of Love”: true amorousness is wordless. And I love the little narration heard in “The Little Fete.” When this transporting album is over, you re-awaken back in your own country, saddened at having to return to the world of unromantic, extroverted, rough, Western garrulousness. (Me, I'm fragile.)

1988, DIRECT ****/*****

Love the telepathic album cover, and check out those lips – remind you of any visitors? These atmospheric instrumentals flow into one another effortlessly. Become a musical galactic voyager by imagining yourself as one while attentively listening to these mesmerizing, otherworldly, shimmering soundscapes that sparkle and glitter, as you waft through a cosmic jewelry store full of emerald colored stars, multi-colored space dust and swirling appegio effects. “Elsewhere” is particularly ethereal. The last track is most noteworthy: alternately moody, haunting, and then, by the end, following a jazzy segue in which those on brass bend and sway, why, a sunrise!, and a ... “great morning, man.”

1990, THE CITY *****/*****

“Dawn”: oooooh oooooh ... that lulling electronic trumpet; what a nocturne if there ever was one! “Is this city open? Got any morning papers yet? Too early. A sandwich? Thanks.” Classic line, delivered spot-on. “Morning Papers”: tip-toe across a celestial xylophone. “Side Streets”: get on your motorbike and hit the open benighted desert highway, wind in your hair, the neon-lit insular cityscape up ahead. “Good To See You”: that l-u-l-l-i-n-g, sultry electronic sax. By this time your motorbike has magically transformed itself into a baby crib on wheels. “Procession”: slowly it builds; enticing, climaxing, exploding into tiny slow-motion particles ... fading ... fading ... into DEJA-VU. The album is timeless; it never ages.

1995, VOICES *****/*****

A coincidental title for a clairaudient listener such as I. Join in with the marching heavenly chorus of the first track! ... up! ... uplifting we go! ... soaring! ... humming and heping all the way, this paean! “Echoes”: sedative...sedative...sedative. “Ask The Mountains”: answer me this: doesn't Stina Nordenstam have one of the most whispery, angelical voices you've ever heard? “Messages”: a lateral back-and-forth-ing, tic-tocking, self-hypnotic-induced snooze atop a flute-shaped simulacrum home to an invisible choir. “Dream In An Open Place”: another lallation – dreamy, gentle, nostalgic-inducing; both a life's reflection and storybook closure. Makes the eyes moisten at times.

1996, OCEANIC *****/*****

Breathe in the fresh-smelling sea spray and feel the softly cheek-splashing waves named Littoral, Alluvion, and Cat's-paw caressing your face as we set sea and receive a cymbal-clashing “Bon Voyage.” Entering coral reefs and pretty mermaid territory with the euphonious, sweeping “Sirens' Whispering.” These aquatic women with come-hither vocals. The water is warm, immaculately clean, and crystal azure. Listen for the octopus spirit playing the harp. “Fields Of Coral”: how one entering a ripple dissolve must feel. “Song Of The Seas”: perfect album capper: this balmy melody and allayer of stress is as relaxing as sunbathing at the beach. (Memo to mom who took one look at the album cover and thought it degrading to women: It's a film still taken from an Esther Williams movie, and you love Esther Williams! you silly.)

Oh, by the way, being this is a website mainly devoted to all things UFO, also recommended are Michael Stearns' Encounter & the even better Phil Thornton Alien Encounter albums.

Or, feel like going on one cool musical space mission? Then check out Amin Bhatia's The Interstellar Suite. Track #5 is my personal favorite and it plays best with the volume turned up. For all you VRs out there, you might like the artwork found in Bhatia’s follow-up album, Virtuality. Bhatia also had provided some music for The Ray Bradbury Theater television series, my favorite television show of all time, alongside both the original – and its successor – The Outer Limits series.

I love this. I am a water person. Born under a water sign, maiden name Waters...my backyard
is the water. I did water ballet when I was younger. The water may have flooded me out but
I love it nonetheless. Now, I'll go sit
by the water and commune.

I'm holding on so tightly now
My insides scream so loud
They keep watching, watching me drown.
How did it come to this?

How did it come to this?
How did I know it was you?
It was a bad dream, asphyxiated, watch me bleed.
The life support was cut, but now its too tight.
They push and pull me, but they know they'll never win


Throw it all away!!
Throw it all away!!
I keep on screaming, but theres really nothing left to say.
So get away!!
Just get away!!
I keep on fighting, but i can't keep going on this way
Can't keep going,
can't keep going, on like this, they make me sick.


And I get so sick of it.
'Cause they won't let me
they won't let me breathe.
Why can't they let me be?

Why can't they let me be?
Why don't I know what I am?
I force this hate into my heart 'cause it's my only friend.
My lips are sewn shut, I watch myself bleed.
They push and pull me and it's killing me within.


Throw it all away!!
Throw it all away!!
I keep on screaming, but theres really nothing left to say
So get away!!
Just get away!!
I keep fighting, but i cant keep going on this way
I can't keep going,
can't keep going, on this way.
I can't keep going,
can't keep going, on this way.


My heartbeat stumbles, and my back bone crumbles
I feel, is it real? - as the lynch mob doubles.
They want blood and they'll kill for it.
Drain me and they'll kneel for it.
Burn me at the stake
now the devil made the deal for it.
Guillotine dreams, yeah their guillotine gleams
their blood of their enemies.
Watch it while they sentence me.
Sentence ceased, sentence deceased.
Watch me bask in the glory of their holy disease.


Throw it all away!!
Throw it all away!!
I keep on screaming, but theres really nothing left to say
So get away!!
Just get away!!
I keep on fighting, but i cant keep going on this way
I keep on running, I keep on running, I keep on running
but i cant keep going on this way
I keep on running, I keep on running, I keep on running
but i cant keep going on this way!!

By the rivers dark
I wandered on.
I lived my life
in Babylon.

And I did forget
My holy song:
And I had no strength
In Babylon.

By the rivers dark
Where I could not see
Who was waiting there
Who was hunting me.

And he cut my lip
And he cut my heart.
So I could not drink
From the river dark.

And he covered me,
And I saw within,
My lawless heart
And my wedding ring,

I did not know
And I could not see
Who was waiting there,
Who was hunting me.

By the rivers dark
I panicked on.
I belonged at last
to Babylon.

Then he struck my heart
With a deadly force,
And he said,This heart
It is not yours.

And he gave the wind
My wedding ring;
And he circled us
With everything.

By the rivers dark,
In a wounded dawn,
I live my life
In Babylon.

Though I take my song
From a withered limb,
Both song and tree,
They sing for him.

Be the truth unsaid
And the blessing gone,
If I forget
My Babylon.

I did not know
And I could not see
Who was waiting there,
Who was hunting me.

By the rivers dark,
Where it all goes on;
By the rivers dark
In Babylon.

Native this is one interpretation of the
song you posted. I play this song often.

This song is a retelling of Psalm 137.

The Psalm is written by an Israelite mourning having been dragged into the Babylonian exile, and having lost Jerusalem. In the Psalm he and the other Israelites sit down by the rivers of Babylon and weep over the loss of Jerusalem and of the Temple, and the captors mock them asking for a holy song (presumably what would be sung in the Temple) and the writer pleads, "How can we sing the LORD's song in a foreign land?" And then he says that if he forgets Jerusalem, his right hand should lose his skill (of playing the lyre) and his tongue should cleave to the roof of his mouth (so he can't sing anymore) and he has a fantasy about taking back Jerusalem and slamming the children of his captors against a rock.

But it all ties in perfectly with this song. Instead, the singer is trapped in Babylon, and has been for some time. Long enough that he has "lived his life in Babylon" and has "forgot his holy song." This could be seen as losing faith or giving into sin. Then he is hunted by, I would presume, his conscience or God. His heart is struck and what is revealed is lawless (torahless) and his wedding ring, to Babylon. He runs from the realization, and truly becomes a citizen of Babylon by rejecting the Lord and his ways. But he is captured by God and his wedding ring is tossed away.

I realize this song is about drug use....but it's also about deeper things.....and it has been an earworm in my mind ever since I heard the news about Ft. Hood.

Of course, the Ft. Hood tragedy is just "another brick in the wall", or another "straw on the camel's back" or whatever cliche' you prefer.



Gotta get off, gonna get
Have to get off from this ride
Gotta get hold, gonna get
Need to get hold of my pride

When did I get, where did I
How was I caught in this game
When will I know, where will I
How will I think of my name

When did I stop feeling sure, feeling safe
And start wondering why, wondering why
Is this a dream, am I here, where are you
What's in back of the sky, why do we cry

Gotta get off, gonna get
Out of this merry-go-round
Gotta get off, gonna get
Need to get on where I'm bound

When did I get, where did I
Why am I lost as a lamb
When will I know, where will I
How will I learn who I am

Is this a dream, am I here, where are you
Tell me, when will I know, how will I know
When will I know why?

"In the end, only kindness matters."

I find that I am very often connected to number sequences. 11 is one of the ones I connect with most often.

Didn't blood, sweat, and tears do a cover of an eric satie piece?

(my new favorite song)}

The paranoia is in bloom, the PR
The transmissions will resume
They’ll try to push drugs
Keep us all dumbed down
and hope that
We will never see the truth around
(So come on!)

Another promise, another scene, another
A package not to keep us trapped in greed
With all the green belts wrapped around our minds
And endless red tape to keep the truth confined
(So come on!)

Chorus
They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious


Interchanging mind control
Come let the revolution take its toll
if you could
Flick the switch and open your third eye,
you’d see that
We should never be afraid to die
(So come on!)

Rise up and take the power back, it’s time that
The fat cats had a heart attack,
you know that
Their time is coming to an end
We have to
unify and watch our flag ascend

Chorus
They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious
