The last song on a cd we made in memory of Ron after he died. It was one of those songs that kind of grew on us the more we heard it.


The last video for tonight :)

Since binge watching Dexter t.v. series, the theme song runs through my head all the time. :coffee:

What does this mean??????? :shrug:

Should I get rid of all my cutlery, plastic sheeting and duct tape? :jedi:

How about my microscope slides? :rolleye:
What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

Frank Zappa

Warning - all sorts of dirty language.....Frank would be unhappy I told you so. Absolutely stellar guitar from Zappa, brilliant vocals from Ike Willis along with terrific playing from the entire rhythm section. For the goods skip to 8:31!!!

  • "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting oneself one protects others? By the pursuit, development, and cultivation of the four establishments of mindfulness. It is in such a way that by protecting oneself one protects others.

    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting others one protects oneself? By patience, harmlessness, goodwill, and sympathy. It is in such a way that by protecting others one protects oneself.

Frank was a genius... But actually, regarding the lyrics, you might find it interesting to read and/or watch the 1985 congressional hearings on lyrics, in part because it features a senator named Al Gore...
Frank Zappa wrote: If you consider that the public needs to be warned about the contents of the records, what better way than to let them see exactly what the songs say? That way you do not have to put any kind of subjective rating on the record. You do not have to call it R, X, D/A, anything. You can read it for yourself.

But in order for it to work properly, the lyrics should be on a uniform kind of a sheet. Maybe even the Government could print those sheets. Maybe it should even be paid for by the Government, if the Government is interested in making sure that people have consumer information in this regard.

This is Kawehi. She does original works, but her youtube channel has a lot of covers, each of which I like better than I do the originals. I like most of her songs, so I'm a bit indecisive. Sorry.

I wish I could have shared this music with my mom. I think she would have loved it.

Yes, I've seen them once or twice. I remember Frank being super arrogant (when wasn't he?), but I agreed with him nonetheless.

From William Orbit, one of the great ambient and downtempo artists. This one tends toward the latter.
