  1. I have a niece that I called an old soul when she was a baby. She was just a tiny thing in a "bouncy seat", but she'd look at you like she knew everything about you already! Both of my nieces and my sister came over today, which is what made me happy. I had lots of quality time with my other niece-playing piano (just a few notes-I can't play but could plunk out what she asked me to-she can make up original melodies, which I never could, and she's a lovely singer), and talking to her while she drew me a picture. I'd be happy to spend every day with them. They go back to school Tuesday.
  2. We finally got Krispy Kremes up here several years ago, and then they closed all of them! But it's just as well, as I'm supposed to be eating low-fat. I have found Kemps fat free frozen yogurt, which to me tastes as good as regular ice cream, so I can still get my sugar fix.

    Oh CANADA!

    I don't know about the emoticons, but I've had trouble when I've tried to change font size, color, style or do bold type on here.

    Oh CANADA!

    I'm not Canadian, but I'm to the point where I wish I was. The people in this country (US) are freaking me out! If I had the money, I'd move there, ay. BTW-I love the movie "Canadian Bacon". It's hillarious.
  6. Night Train-Bruce Cockburn
  7. Morning Dew-Robert Plant
  8. Young Boy Blues-the Honeydrippers
  9. I wanted to go to Playing For Change when I heard they'll be here in Nov. But by the time they add fees it was almost $50/ticket. I can't afford that.
  10. Dancing in Heaven-Robert Plant
  11. I had a hard time deciding between Ten Years Gone & In the Light. I chose In The Light because of the meaning of the lyrics. I like the sound of Ten Years Gone best-definitely one of my favorite Zep songs. And PG is my favorite Zep album.
  12. Lay Your Hands On Me-Peter Gabriel
  13. Listening to many of my favorite songs, while I made some cds for my friend for her birthday.
  14. I am always torn with Big Log: part of me LOVES Robert's vocals, and another part HATES the drum machine clap. Sometimes I put it on & have to turn it off because the clap makes me want to SCREAM! Wouldn't it be great if someday music is released in a form that you could edit on your computer? They could have a default version (the arrangement the artist chooses to release) on the discs to protect copyright. I would definitely take that out of Big Log. And the little "click-click" in Ship of Fools. I could take all the screechy backing vocals and sloppy horn parts off my Bobby Darin cds. I wouldn't have given Raising Sand away, if I could have taken Al... Ok, everybody pile on-I asked for it!
  15. Early in the Morning-Harry Nilsson
  16. Hi: Is this thread just for discussing movies in theaters now, or for movies we like in general (I haven't gone to a movie theater for a long time)? Thanks.
  17. BEFORE I GO-John Hiatt I've been sleeping for some hours Just woke up and you were there Like the morning, like the flowers Sunlight whispering in my ears Red tail hawk shooting down the canyon Put me on that wind he rides I will be your true companion When we reach the other side I will try, I will stumble But I will fly, he told me so Proud and high or low and humble Many miles before I go Many miles before I go Can't decide which way to travel On the ground or in the sky All my schemes have come unraveled All that's left is you and I And I will try, but I will stumble And I will fly, he told me so Proud and high or low and humble Many miles before I go Many miles before I go Here I go Ghosts on the trees, there's Ghosts on the wires Asking questions and showing signs Shivering with truth, they're lighting fires Lighting fires all down the line And I will try, and I will stumble But I will fly, he told me so Proud and high or low and humble Many miles before I go Many miles before I go Proud and high or low and humble Many miles before I go Many miles before I go --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE RIVER KNOWS YOUR NAME-John Hiatt Oh the river knows your name And your tears falling like the rain All around you suffering and pain Oh the river knows your name And the river hears you cry As the lightning cracks the open sky As your momma sings a lullaby Oh the river she knows why Let the river wash you down Beneath the surface with a rushing sound Like a freight train passing through a town Let the river wash you down Let the river take away All the words you and I could never say In the silence darling let us pray Let the river take it all away Oh the river she knows your name From the brazos to the wabash to the seine No two journeys are ever quite the same But the river knows your name Oh the river knows your name ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DON'T FADE AWAY-Brendan Perry (Dead Can Dance) Don't fade away, my brown-eyed girl Come walk with me, i'll fill your heart with joy And we'll dance through our isolation. Seeking solace in the wisdom we bestow Turning thoughts to the here and ever after Consuming fears in our fiery halos Say what you mean, mean what you say I've heard that innocence has led us all astray But don't let them make you and break you The world is filled with their broken empty dreams Silence is their only virtue Locked away inside their silent screams But for now, let us dance away this starry night Filled with the glow of fiery stars And with the dawn our sun will rise Bringing a symphony of bird cries Don't bring me down now, let me stay here for awhile You know life's too short, let me bathe here in your smile I'm transcending the fall from the garden ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I SLEPT ALL NIGHT BY MY LOVER-Greg Brown Lookin out my window, glad to see another dawn A few cars strugglin through the snow It's so hard to believe it could all be here and gone So quickly that we wouldn't even know And I slept all night by my lover She trembles in her sleep, deep in a bad dream I touch her brow and she ceases shaking Why should I sleep with such a lovely watch to keep In an hour or so the children will be waking And I slept all night by my lover Madmen with guns stalk the deer at night And bring down the dark the whole world over Even in my dreams I see their shining eyes And they pierce me and leave me with no cover And I slept all night by my lover ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ HEAVEN THAT I'M MAKING-Neil Finn (Crowded House) Plead with my saint Wash his hands and feet Find his complaint Make his world complete And this heaven that I'm making It can't come quickly enough And the big wave that I'm taking It feels like I'm just waking up Mind out don't think I can't get used to it Right on the brink I end up losing it And this heaven that I'm makin It can't come quickly enough And the big wave that I'm taking It feels like I'm just waking up And I'll be there If all of creation is kind Each conversation I hear As I'm walking in though the crowd As if I could float though the air This heaven This is heaven that I'm makin This is heaven It can't come quickly enough And this big boat that I'm taking Can't come by quickly enough If there is hell on earth There must be heaven too Both in one place And not a second to lose
  18. Here's some Prine-I haven't seen him live yet, but REALLY want to. I could come up with an entire t-shirt collection using his lyrics (Hiatt's also): "Adam and Eve and Lucy and Ricky Bit the big apple and got a little sticky, Esmerelda and the hunchback of Notre Dame They humped each other like they had no shame, They paused as they posed for a polaroid photo, She whispered in his ear... Exactliodo Quasimodo" (from THE SINS OF MEMPHISTO) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SOME HUMANS AIN'T HUMAN: Some humans ain't human Some people ain't kind You open up their hearts And here's what you'll find A few frozen pizzas Some ice cubes with hair A broken Popsicle You don't want to go there Some humans ain't human Though they walk like we do They live and they breathe Just to turn the old screw They screw you when you're sleeping They try to screw you blind Some humans ain't human Some people ain't kind You might go to church And sit down in a pew Those humans who ain't human Could be sittin' right next to you They talk about your family They talk about your clothes When they don't know their own ass From their own elbows Jealousy and stupidity Don't equal harmony Jealousy and stupidity Don't equal harmony Spoken: Have you ever noticed When you're feeling really good There's always a pigeon That'll come shit on your hood Or you're feeling your freedom And the world's off your back Some cowboy from Texas Starts his own war in Iraq Some humans ain't human Some people ain't kind They lie through their teeth With their head up their behind You open up their hearts And here's what you'll find Some humans ain't human Some people ain't kind ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- JESUS, THE MISSING YEARS: It was raining. It was cold West Bethlehem was no place for a twelve year old So he packed his bags and he headed out To find out what the world's about He went to France. He went to Spain He found love. He found pain. He found stores so he started to shop But he had no money so he got in trouble with a cop Kids in trouble with the cops From Israel didn't have no home So he cut his hair and moved to Rome It was there he met his Irish bride And they rented a flat on the lower east side of Rome... Italy that is Music publishers, book binders, Bible belters, Money Changers, Spoon Benders and lots of pretty Italian chicks. Chorus: Charley bought some popcorn Billy bought a car Someone almost bought the farm But they didn't go that far Things shut down at midnight At least around here they do Cause we all reside down the block Inside at ....23 Skidoo. Wine was flowing so were beers So Jesus found his missing years So He went to a dance and said "This don't move me" He hiked up his pants and he went to a movie On his thirteenth birthday he saw "Rebel without a Cause" He went straight on home and invented Santa Claus Who gave him a gift and he responded in kind He gave the gift of love and went out of his mind You see him and the wife wasn't getting along So he took out his guitar and he wrote a song Called "The Dove of Love Fell Off the Perch" But he couldn't get divorced in the Catholic Church At least not back then anyhow Jesus was a good guy he didn't need this shit So he took a pill with a bag of peanuts and A Coca-Cola and he swallowed it. He discovered the Beatles And he recorded with the Stones Once He even opened up a three-way package In Southern California for old George Jones Repeat Chorus: The years went by like sweet little days With babies crying pork chops and beaujolais When he woke up he was seventeen The world was angry. The world was mean. Why the man down the street and the kid on the stoop All agreed that life stank. All the world smelled like poop Baby poop that is ..the worst kind So he grew his hair long and threw away his comb And headed back to Jerusalem to find Mom, Dad and home But when he got there the cupboard was bare Except for an old black man with a fishing rod He said "Whatcha gonna be when you grow up?" Jesus said "God" Oh my God, what have I gotten myself into? I'm a human corkscrew and all my wine is blood They're gonna kill me Mama. They don't like me Bud. So Jesus went to Heaven and he went there awful quick All them people killed him and he wasn't even sick So come and gather around me my contemporary peers And I'll tell you all the story of Jesus...The Missing Years Repeat Chorus: We all reside down the block Inside at ....23 Skidoo. (I copied the lyrics from a site called the Prine Shrine, but I noticed they have a few words he didn't sing on the recording) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- and the one that may wind up engraved on my urn someday: "send my mouth way down south and kiss my ass goodbye" (from "PLEASE DON'T BURY ME") This could go on forever......
