  1. MISSING YOU HERMIT!!! Hoping you and yours have a happy and peaceful holiday season!


  2. His Holiness The 17th Karmapa's arrival in the US makes me happy. Young Spiritual Leader Arrives in New York, Ready to Teach and Be Taught May 16, 2008 The 22-year-old living Buddha seemed joyfully aware to feel no jet lag whatsoever. So far. “Maybe tonight,” he said in English on Thursday. “But not yet.” He had just arrived at a Midtown hotel with his security detail after a 14-hour flight from New Delhi to Newark. Ugyen Trinley Dorje, 22, widely admired as an enlightened being, arrived in New York to start an 18-day American tour. “It is the first time I’ve ever visited the United States, and it’s a bit like a dream,” said His Holiness, the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa Ugyen Trinley Dorje, one of the most important leaders in Tibetan Buddhism. Despite his youth, he is revered by followers as a master teacher, and on Thursday he began his whirlwind tour of the United States, an 18-day visit to New York, New Jersey, Boulder, Colo., and Seattle. Yes, he is that Karmapa: the young master who made headlines across the world at age 14 with his daring escape from China to India across the Himalayas in 1999. His followers regard him not only as the reincarnation of his predecessor, the 16th Karmapa, Rangjung Rigpe Dorje, who died in 1981, but also as the 17th incarnation of the first Karmapa in the 12th century, in an unbroken lineage going back 900 years. They revere him as leader of the Kagyu sect — called the black hat or black crown sect — one of the four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism. *source: NY Times* Eh Ma Ho!! [How Wondrous!]
  3. thanks for covering for me with drunk while i was off...couldnt have said it better...

  4. Seeing *http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKax7euEM5Q* in concert made me happy today. ..so did getting tickets to see * (Al DiMeola, Chick Corea, Lenny White, & Stanley Clarke) on June 8th!
  5. You've seen Robert Fripp smile.. and laugh? No way!! A "warmup gig", eh? Cool! That means a tour is forthcoming. I shall keep my eyes/ears open for ticket announcements! Thanks for the heads up! Adrian Belew is touring with The AB Power Trio right up until July 5th. I guess he'll have a couple of weeks to rest up, and a couple weeks of practice with King Crimson, and then.. off they go!
  6. Sweet! ..and only $25?! Wow! *goes looking for Seattle dates* none yet. [i just bought *http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKax7euEM5Q* tickets though. ]
  7. *crossover from other thread as this seem the more proper (original) place for KC discussion* Yeah,.. Discipline is my favorite of the 3 too. If you dig (Three Of A Perfect Pair pun intended ) Discipline as much as I do.. as it seems you do.. then I highly suggest you get 'ConstruKtion Of Light', 'The Power To Believe', and 'Eyes Wide Open' (DVD). Kick-ass King Crimson! Fwiw.. although I like In The Court Of The Crimson King quite abit, and some of the other earlier material.., my KC interest is mostly from Discipline and thereafter (1981 - present). My first experience of KC was the Fripp, Belew, Bruford, and Levin lineup and that's the lineup that's always been the nearest and dearest to my KC heart. Having saisd that, I also really dig the lineup with Trey Gunn and Pat Mastelotto too. They jam! You can imagine how thrilled I was in 1994 when I saw the "double-trio" lineup of Belew, Fripp, Levin, Gunn, Bruford, and Mastelotto! -->
  8. Why the secret as to what state you live in? I dont get it. Its not like anyone will know where you live. I live in E Rochester, NY

  9. Thank Buddah you are back!

    I count on you being here!!

    YaY Hermit!



  10. Miss yah, kiddo

  11. I was so glad you returned after that long absence, only to have you snatched away from us. A keen mind, a quick wit, and a sometimes sharp tongue... couldn't ask for more.

  12. May the road rise to meet you, Hermit. Your presence is deeply missed!

  13. Hermit, I dont' know what to say. There's no excuse for your being banned from here. You are sorely missed mate.

  14. This is another UNSOLICITED comment--we need Hermit back! It's disgraceful that a member like you should be banned!

  15. I miss you, my little friend. (sniff)

    This place is really, really different without you, it's a pity you've been forced to leave.
