Mines a tale that cant be told, My freedom I hold dear; How years ago in days of old When magic filled the air, Twas in the darkest depths of mordor I met a girl so fair, But gollum, and the evil one crept up And slipped away with her. Her, her....yea. Aint nothing I can do, no. Ramble on, And nows the time, the time is now To sing my song. Im goin round the world, I got to find my girl, on my way.

  9. A devotee once complained to the great nineteenth-century saint Sri Ramakrishna about not having had any deep experiences of God. Sri Ramakrishna took him by the hand and led him to the ashram's bathing pond. They both walked into the water until they were about waist deep, and Sri Ramakrishna then pushed the man's head underwater with great force and held him there for nearly a minute. The man struggled and struggled, and finally the saint released his grip and the man emerged urgently from the water, gasping for breath. Sri Ramakrishna said to him, "When you want God as much as you wanted that next breath, you will see God. " - Bo Lozoff
  10. Oh man, my buddy was busting up the whole time...I have practice, I'll sit and listen to anyone's story, much to the chagrin of my wife and friends....hee hee....
  11. It was tough, being a bit buzzed helped ! there was much more that I didn't post, she also told me that she had been abducted by a UFO. To call her crazy would be an understatment, anything is possible, but you can always tell when someone is nuts.....
  12. Love the scary music! What a crock o' crap...but its old news for all of us veteran Led Heads. I remember when all that garbage was at it's height among ultra religious types in the early 80's .But that sort of slander is not reserved to a specific group. I never told this story here before, but I had an encounter with a woman who claims to have traveled with the boys in the 70's and that all the Beelzebub business was true : DISCLAIMER ( I am only recounting a story, I do not believe any of it ! ) It was 1991; my wife, myself and some friends had spent the day hiking Point Reyes, in Northern California. We got a room for the evening and found ourselves a nice little bar that had great seafood, good ale and a big, roaring fireplace. We all noticed an older woman who was staring at us from across the room, we were all happy to be out of the January cold and a bit loud, but no louder than anyone else in the bar. It was making us all a tad uneasy because it was so obvious, but being drunken idiots we all decided the only course of action was to stare back. She got up , approached the table and introduced herself as "Butterfly"... (bear with me folks; this is Northern California after all.) She had long, obviously dyed black hair and a lot of make up. She was dressed in that “New Age Hippy” style that was popular in the early 90’s. She said the reason she had been staring was the Led Zeppelin t-shirt I was wearing, she also said that she knew the boys personally. I invited her to sit down, much to the horror of my wife and friends, I'm always engaging weird folks in conversation, something everyone who knows me HATES . She proceeded to tell us that she was a prominent witch in a large coven in Marin County and met Jimmy in the late 60's. She also said that Jimmy had invited her to travel with Zeppelin on two occasions, and she knew first hand that the pact with Satan was in fact true, they had all, including Jonesy sold their souls. She went on to tell us that Robert was able to escape the contract because he had traveled the world and sought the protection of various shaman, holy men and the like....AND because he had the "purest" soul in the band. By this time we’re all rolling our eyes, and it was at this point I told her, while I appreciated the entertainment, I thought she was full of shit. Needless to say that comment upset her a bit and said that she should have known better than to open up to a “ bunch of fools”. She was obviously crazy, to put it mildly, with that she got up, walked over to the bar and had a couple more drinks before leaving. Everyone at the table was happy to see her go and asked me to please have any future conversations with psychopaths far away from them. Again, I never believed a word she said, just thought it would be a funny story to share with you all here. I’ve always believed that Zeppelin made some of the most “spiritual” , positive music ever. I’ll have to dig up my “Zep Prayer” and re-post it , I tied together some lyrics to show just how positive and beautiful their music is.

  16. So great to see the underdogs get one over on the "invincible" Patriots ! My hat is off to Eli, what a courageous performance, and the Giants D ! I always said if you hit Brady in the mouth enough, he'll fold . Tom Brady and Coach Cheater showed their true colors by leaving the field with their tails between their legs. A true champion is humble in victory and gracious in defeat...they looked like two spoiled children ! Way to go Giants !!!!
  17. Great quote ! You're a wise man Delbert.... ( Dude, I need to not post when I've been drinking )
