Frank Zappa — Bolero, Barcelona, May 17, 1988.
What’s on your mind?
Zapped the Zed…?
Excellent choice of video.
Here’s The Waters of March in Portuguese.
nice one tut — aloha — how’s paradise tonight?
that’s mr why — how was your day?
Aloha, Suz…! A soggy day today, but, I’ve got my flat…! ;-)
soggy off and on here too — a flat? are you moving?
*heh* My corned beef for tomorrow’s festivities… I was bummed that they only had 3-3 1/2 lb flats left…!
*light bulb glowing*
ahhhh so not as much as you were planning on
Got a ticket for being stupid. Wish that there was a stupid meter so we could hand out tickets for imperiling the public while being stupid.
Sweet! I so miss Zappa.
BTW this is a PERFECT example (Bolero) of a musical technique; Ostinato [Italian for Obstinate]
It never changes. Never changes key (cept for the very lastest part for a minute), never changes tempo, never changes the underlying rhythm. It just adds layers and parts, and is relentless.
Yes, I just love that!
aw crap. tix suck — i’ve been on both the issuing and the receiving side.
hey kelly — how’s denver tonight? glad ya liked it
Denver is warm, and weird. Got tulips coming up and crocus. Spinach seeds in the tubs, so count 60 days and should have some nice greens.
And STRAWBERRIES! LOL! The strawberry plant we rescued from my Russkis? It’s spread to something like a 5×5 foot plot. Vile weed!
Mostly on the issuing part tho, right…? ;-)
the search that led me to the zappa bolero started with stumbling across this
sweet…. unless of course, it snows next week
yup, mostly issuing but i have received :(
Strawberries, spinach and peas are very happy with the odd snow on them here. They don’t seem to mind a bit, and just do what they do.
And belch’s gramma always preferred “snow kissed” peas to other later peas.
makes ‘em sweeter is what i heard
Did ya’ll have quotas to meet…? It seems that HPD has quotas to meet, several cops I’ve worked with in the Guard said they did and every month, towards the end, sobriety checkpoints and speed traps are always set up, and, they’re quick to pull vehicles over…! 8-(
nope, no quotas. we had performance standards — which meant were each of us issuing citations at about the same rate as other officers on the same shift and in the same area of town.
I think you sit around and watch the clock to be sure to be z.
hey pellora — feeling any better today?
*heh* I just know the routine, Pel…! Aloha, M’dear…! ;-)
that tune got me to this one and it was via that cover that i went down the road looking for other covers and found the zappa
Well, since I didn’t take any Nyquil until right at bed, the cough hit before the meds did – and that was no fun. So today I took a couple of doses… and will again in a bit so I’ll be dosed before I get in bed. I feel better every day, but the cough is sure persistent. : ( Tired of it.
How are you? Rainy you say? It was cloudy here, but no rain. The snow level last night was pretty low though – just above the highest houses on the foothills. I have plants starting their spring growth though. We might get snow in valley on Friday… but the weatherpeoples’ guesses this time of year are commonly wrong.
Orchestra Led Zep – All of My Love
i saw the tahoe snowfall on my local weather tonight… looked like the skiers will be happy
the cough is always the last thing to go :( staying ahead of it is the best way to fight it
Aloha! I still say you plan your evening to be the early bird!
Skiers are having great fun! There’s lots of snow up at Tahoe!
It’s a weird little cough… except if it gets going. Then it’s hard to stop it. Lozenges help too.
brick in the wall from the album classic and acoustic
hola sunny — how ya doing tonight?
Beatles – She Loves You Yeah Yeah Yeah, Baroque Style
Someday I hope to Ski Tahoe, and, Mammoth… Someday…!
Hi joining peeps!
royal brass — eleanor
Heh! Only Frank would conduct and smoke at the same time.
reminds me of the old dean martin video where he is singing with a smoke going…
the royal philharmonic does queen
Heh. The Royal Phil HAS to – they work for, wait for it….THE QUEEN! LOL!
You’ll love every minute of it too! I’ve never skied Mammoth. Have up a Tahoe though. Skiing great – but the views from the tops to The Lake! wowweee zoweee!
The symphonic “Sympathy For the Devil” sure does remind me of the movie Fantasia “Night on Bald Mountain”
hehehehehe i was so tempted to toss a ‘the’ in there
hey strato — how ya doing tonight? here’s your bald mountain
Zappa Orchestral Music – “Bogus Pomp” which really is. You know why?
Because it’s fucking “Billy The Mountain” for Those Who Are Not Paying Attention.
Torvill and Dean do Bolero 1984
Charo does “Bolero”
I had never known that she had any talent whatsoever
oh my — she’s good
Doing well… Household improvements continue apace. Selected replacement carpet with crossed fingers. Easy for me to screw up color choices.
How are Token and the kitteh?
She IS good!
token is snoozing on the rug and bailey cat is under the wood stove. they are doing well :) fingers and toes crossed that your color selection was perfect
Disney’s got bosoms! Sure they’re fiery hot, hell-spawned demon bosoms, but …
evening, Suzzzz, firegods
For a bunch of Brits, they sure know how to strum…! ;-)
hey ppd — how ya doing tonight?
when i hear the ukes, i always think of the zimmers
Kelly! It’s been a while since our thread presence coincided.
FYI, my reception has improved dramatically… no changes here, must be on your end. Congrats!
That was such a cool project… And all the Elders had a blast too…! ;-)
pretty good, thanks — I saw the google animation of Japan’s seismic swarm today — amazing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xylDxj6-9dY
i’m not sure why i associate those two groups – i musta heard or seen video of them around the same time is my best guess
and I became an official firegod today.
I figured Arianna neither needs nor deserves my clicks or shekels.
congratulations dood :)
i can’t believe she brought back that breitbart asshole to huffpo
Probably has something to do with the AOL buyout.
On another note, this should be the future of the music industry.
Hey folks. The folks at the Heritage foundation have explained it all for Their
Events unfolding in Japan ought to have no impact on the current U.S. reactor fleet or future plans to expand that fleet. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission does not need to regulate more in response to this. We need to remember that nuke plants are privately owned and that their owners have every incentive to maintain safe operations
hey hannibal — how ya doing tonight?
hey spocko — how was your day?
Suzzz — a 40 foot section of Highway 1 dropped into the ocean south of Rocky Point this afternoon — undermined by recent rain runoff probably http://www.ksbw.com/video/27221522/detail.html yikes!
woohoo! a day where ya can’t complain is a day to celebrate dood.
wow, down near big sur and not devils slide like i wudda expected
Hey spocko — Don’t get on the ship! To serve Mankind — It’s a COOKBOOK!
Better than yesterday. Although reading Digby’s post today about 50 something being out of work was hard.
The lack of hope of so many people is just terrible. Did you know in Marin yesterday an man held the BofA branch hostage wanting to talk to the CEO? He said that he was ripped
Off and wanted his money back.
The TV people kept saying how he was mentally I’ll.
hi Suz, everyone
Breitbart, eh? Makes sense. I knew that the sale to aol was just the beginning of the selling out.
That japan seismic vid was intense.
Perfectly set off by the music, too
geebus, i’d not heard about that spocko.
hey margot — how’s ohio tonight?
Hey y’all. Did any of you see the video from Australia of a bully getting what he had coming? As someone who was bullied as a kid, I loved the body slam.
hey that guy — how ya doing tonight?
Hi Sunny, PPD:)
Ohio has a horrible governor who wants to open up our parks for oil and gas drilling.
He’s like the bully kid in the neighborhood who knows what everyone’s favorite toy/posession is and he is Trying to take them away, gleefully.
i read the article but didn’t watch the video. saw too much real life in my previous job is my guess — just can’t watch anything with violence anymore
They mentioned his mental illness many times. It was as if they wanted people to know only crazy people would respond this way. I think of how many non crazy people he might represent.
Tired, another fill in gig, shitty money. Won’t be working with that band again.
on the ed show tonight, he had an ohio rep (i forget her name) and the show ended with her telling him that he needs to bring his show to ohio — and he agreed with her
I understand, Suz, but man, I think every person who’sever been bullied would appreciate the worm turning.
i bet there were a lotta folks who nodded their head yes in an ‘i’ve thought of doing that’ way
Yet another reason not to watch Battle: LA.
:( bummer dood but now you can use that time practicing with your band
i think the last movie i saw at the theater was shrek 2
Aloha, Margot…! Wtf is wrong with Kasich…? Announcing Medicaid cuts at an Elderly center, axing 99 tax collectors, upping the public pension payments from the individual public employees by $1.1 Billion… And, that is only part of it…! *gah*
Oh I hope he does, we need it. I wonder if it was Marcy Kaptur?
dont forget he wants to tax pensions too iirc
black woman from southern ohio is about all i remember. i think she may have been state rep???
Oh noes…! Not the 100…! ;-)
I put together a proposal for mayors against illegal guns last week where I wanted to track down and expose where the system fell apart when it comes to getting info about mentally ill and criminals into the NICS database. What astonished me was how many states provided no info so people with a history of violent mental illness could not legal buy a gun.
fuck — i fucking did it again — that’s two fucking nights in a fucking row
geebus… isn’t that against federal law for them not to be in compliance?
The HIPAA is also a factor too, spocko…!
It’s all part of the corporate plan, CT — this is a long read, but well worth it. This is America’s brain on drugs
my magic google powers are failing me. I’ll find out tomorrow when I can look at the Ed Show transcript.
i just looked at his site and its not up yet :(
I had a whole section on understanding where HIPAA fits into the reporting system. I wanted to get the health care providers on my side. I wanted to let them see that just like they have an obligation to report someone who may be a threat to themselves or others they need to report people who should not get guns. Its not just about killing others it’s about killing themselves too.
I see I’ve gotten dark again. Sorry.
’bout time for me to turn back into a pumpkin folks. thanks for letting me hang out with ya — and for all the conversations and music you shared
night, Suzzzz – night all, be well
Ray White, the assistant Bolero Enema Bandit, on cowbell
Pleasant Dreams, Suz and ya’ll…! *g*
