Sixto Rodriguez — Rich Folks Hoax, live at Highline Ballroom in New York City, August 31, 2012.
What’s on your mind?
Lost another “friend” to politics today. Oh well. ‘Baggers can’t stand to be called on their bullshit.
g’evening pups – how ya’ll doing tonight?
hey thatguy — that’s too bad dood. things have become so black and white that no one is seeing any gray anymore.
how’s the south bay tonight?
Cold. Been cold for days. I’m stunned I didn’t get sick from all that laying on cold concrete when I was working on my truck.
i finally got above freezing for the first time in several days — at forking midnight last night. i’m about 10 degrees warmer than i was – both highs and lows.
didja get the truck fixed?
Aloha, Suz and lln pups…! Great tune…!
aloha tut — how’s paradise tonight? someone played it in a late late thread one night and i can’t forking remember the who. it was an album cut and not this video but the same song
Yep, no more leaky leaky.
Hey, Suzanne! Most awesome song ……when there are no coincidences. I’m in a bit of a struggle..
and this is bringing me joy!
It’s about raising our vibrations. Our vibrations are our voice as Humans.
I’m here to drop a quarter.
Hi, evening all.
I got home about 6 this morning, still groggy, but, I didn’t have to go outside except to smoke a cig or two, Easy Money…! ;-)
hey openhope — how’s the sound tonight? so glad ya liked the tune… click on his name in the post — dood has an interesting history — his music was a idolized in south africa (where they thought he was dead) and he had no idea
hey wmd — fine quarter :) how’s it going tonight?
hey bev — how ya doing tonight?
you ended up there all night then? last i recalled, there was talk of sending ya down the mt early
Hi, doing good, rainy, cold (38 degrees)
Thought I’d drop by and see what was happening at LLN.
Spent a lot of time at the dentist today. Went well.
yay and yuck. how long is it gonna be like that?
usually spending a lotta time at the dentist isn’ a good thing dood. but if it went well, then :)
any nibbles yet?
I wish I knew – last weekend 70 degrees, next weekend cold for the Inaugural, but with the temp swings and no snow to speak of this year, I just don’t know. In the 90′s I could guarantee knee deep snow for months and temps under freezing for months.
inner city blues
nothing yet. I’m a bit slow moving on it, hard to find time away from work to look for new gig.
Sitting here doing my homework for next Monday’s Movie Night – The DVD of Tiki
weather is so fucked up everywhere. all the norms aren’t
do ya think its gonna be a repeat of the purple tunnel of doom or will it be better organized?
work does tend to do that to ya…
for fun – aloha tahiti show I found
well, I’ll be home watching it on tv, it is a federal holiday for DC workers, too many people for a normal work day.
armchair traveling! looks like a fun movie for sure bev
I’ve been trying to re-calibrate my sleep time by staying up all night studying Ufology . I’ve been rationalizing sitting on my butt with the time I spent every day during the Spring/Summer/Fall season to Food Growing and Preservation. Now i’m trying not to feel guilty for choosing intellectual growth, total immersion to grasp the concept. A strategy we/I did as “homeschoolers”. Immersion into an idea There was/is nothing more important to a human mind that’s grasping a concept than allowing that mind the luxury concept their imaging. It’s how creativity is made, imo.
Anyhoo, it’s becoming apparent that old women are not to be discarded. We are the bridge. We are the voice.
Let’s get this moving forward,…..this Thing that’s happening. This Peace and Humanity. This remembering.
after that whole bad experience so many folks had last time, and the disapointments of the past 4 years, maybe overcrowding isn’t gonna be so much of an issue this time around
CT I hope you can drop by Monday evening for Lisa’s Movie Night – would be nice to have an expert around.
A lot of local businesses are closing because of the crowds, don’t want their bathrooms overrun – in several ways (grin). I expect 200,000-300,000 probably. Enough to keep me home. I’ll bet Gregg is watching on TV too.
I have just entered my 6 week of Not Smoking Cigs. And I’m still alive and my loved ones haven’t abandoned me due to bad behavior and I have a bunch of money in the account that didn’t used to be there.
Now, I’m a recluse. Maybe next week I’ll be a self-righteous, non-smoking asshole.
One never knows with these things……………….
i certainly would not want to be out there… no matter what the weather. that’s way too many forking people
*standing on chair clapping wildly*
congratulations openhope — well done!!!
Hey wmd, well met! I was just thinking about you this afternoon as I was cleaning my chicken coop. For no particular reason except thinking about how you liked your chickens, as a random thought.
Hope all is well.
Better than being a self-righteous, smoking asshole. (not that you ever were)
I was looking over the Chapter titles, sounds interesting…! I like how they have a chapter on Michener and another on Heyerdahl…! ;-)
Is it on the MLK monday…? Occupy Hilo is planning an ‘Occupy The Dream’ event…!
i think of you
Great job, open…! I really need to quit too…!
Congratulations! That is great.
senator! how’s sac tonight?
Not soooooo cold and still Sacramento.
same up here. weather dood made a joke today that we are having ca weather… overcast, chilly and foggy like sacramento in winter.
Yes, this coming Monday, 8pm ET / 5p PT. I’m watching the screener now, interesting history of the Tiki phenomenon and culture from Capt Cook discovering the islands to present day. Paradise and naked women, rum drinks, etc.
I liked being a Smokin’ asshole. I really miss cigarettes as a social support It’s brutal for an introvert. We’re designed for cigarettes and drugs in a social situation. I’m having difficulties accepting normal Behavior. :)
Paradise and naked women, rum drinks, etc.
*heh* Then those damned Puritans arrived and ruined the whole party…! ;-)
its always naked women and rum…. why doesn’t rum cause men to take off their clothing and dance in the waves….
ya’ll had it good until they arrived dood
The black velvet paintings that are laughed at today (Elvis), started with the Tiki movement in the 40s. Vintage painting
I just had a window open for me and I dove through. I would rather smoke then try to force a quit without a window opening. I’ve been there 5,000 tims. I actually wasn’t that much of an asshole this time. And, in reality, it’s a matter of finances at this point, not health. And not letting anyone have an opinion about my Quit. It was NOT their issue If they wanted to wrap their love around my quit than we would discuss their issues and figure out a game plan. This is the stuff Family Silence is made of. :)
i did not know that. i’ve always thought velvet paintings were a southern thing
Congratulations on stopping smoking. I had a big problem with predation o my chickens this fall, but it’s all good again.
headed to sleep now. Good night all.
That sounds intriguing. Right up my alley!
and rum drinks – started with Beachcomber / Trader Vic’s clubs, it was the cheapest liquor after Prohibition (5 cents/bottle). These clubs invented all the rum drinks we have now, such as Mai Tai, and Zombie.
have a good evening.
rum and coca cola
Predation being hawks, owls, coyote?
Glad to see your fonts.
What most people don’t realize is that Hula was strictly a male tradition until the early 1900′s with the advent of tourism and the cruise ship trade…! ;-)
Love that version!
the original by lord invader
Is that from the warrior dances? I’ve seen the New Zealand dancers.
Never heard that version, guessing 1920s?
The Haka is part of it, but, it was also the main means of relating their Oral History…! The Hawaiians had never developed a written history until the White Man arrived…!
very early for sure….. the first rum video had a link in the more info to this version…
Well, that explains the Hip Thrusting
The men were the keepers of the oral tradition?
This has been fun, but it’s after 2am here, time to turn in, 8a comes early. Take Care, have a great evening out west!
sorry pups.. my pain pill has kicked in and i’m all woozy. i’m gonna head offline for the night.
thanks for letting me hang out with ya tonight.
Yes, it was a an extremely rigid Patriarchal society…!
Sweet dreams, Bev…!
Sweet dreams, Suz…!
Unh, fuck,fuck and coca….have you seen the documentary about Coke’s horrific desimation of the communities in central america? I was such a dismal human when I was engaged with Peace Activists in getting Young People to engage in Anti-war activities/pro-peace shit.
This wonderful young high-school age Latino was helping us try to reach the young people, 4 years ago. He spoke in workable English about the his Father and hie Uncles fighting Coke in their homeland. I was so ignorant that I had nothing to offer him that day, the day he stuck his neck out.
Now I know about Coke and I wish I could find him and apologise for being a stupid and ineffectual alley because of my breeding and prejudices.
I’ve been immersing myself in Ufology interviews and all these past 5 days. Once I happened on the information and incredible people speaking out, I couldn’t go back.
So, now I’m kind of screwed. As an atheist.
When I dedicated time to researching the MOTU, I didn’t expect this. I was happy half way thru the search with the stories of David Rockefeller picking the “Presidents” for decades…………..
Then the ET’s and shit that rings true started surfacing and I’m grateful to Project Camelot and Project Avalon for their quest to be Awake and Aware.
Be awake in your quest for knowledge.
OOps. Sorry. I miss edit, but the stories are real. I have a problem with good stories expressed in a clumsy way,…sorry.
