If we don't, we will have another civil war, which will give our REAL adversaries the advantages they wish to achieve.


What is see, no matter where I look (or listen) are groups of people being pitted against each other and it's sad because this country seems to have lost a great deal over the past four or five decades, fom what I can tell.

I love reading the old Foxfire series of books that were begun in the very early 1970s by a high school class in Macon County, Georgia. I don't know if anyone here is familiar with the series - I think that the set must be up to 20 volumes now - and it began as a project that would preserve the "folk ways" of the people living in the Appalachian region - mostly food preservation, crafts hunting and so on.

What I took away from the books, the undercurrent, is that feeling of community and caring that I don't see very much, especially up here in the northeast. That is probably too harsh, and too generalized a statement. know that when we're had agency techs up here from, say, Florida, they always said that we "movved too fast.....". I know that when living in the Midwest, or in Texas, that the pace was much slower and communities closer. But then again, that was over thirty years ago too.......
What the hell are we fighting for? Ah, just surrender and it won't hurt at all. You just got time to say your prayers. Yeah, while you're waiting for the hammer to fall. (Brian May of Queen)

While My Guitar Gently Weeps - George Harrison

Post by SETIsLady » 09-26-2010 12:43 AM

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7qpfGVU ... re=related

I look at you all
See the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know why nobody told you
How to unfold your love
I don't know how someone controlled you
They bought and sold you
I look at the world and I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps

With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know how you were diverted
You were perverted too
I don't know how you were inverted
No one alerted you
I look at you all see the love there that's
sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps

Look at you all...
Still my guitar gently weeps.

El Salvador ~ Peter, Paul and Mary

There’s a sunny little country south of mexico
Where the winds are gentle and the waters flow
But breezes aren’t the only things that blow
In el salvador

If you took the little lady for a moonlight drive
Odds are still good you’d come back alive
But everyone is innocent until they arrive
In el salvador

If the rebels take a bus on the grand highway
The government destroys a village miles away
The man on the radio says ’now we’ll play south of the border’
And in the morning the natives say,
We’re happy you have lived another day
Last night a thousand more passed away
In el salvador

There’s a television crew here from abc
Filming rio lempe and the refugees
Calling murdered children the ’tragedy’
Of el salvador

Before the government cameras 20 feet away
Another man is asking for continued aid
Food and medicine and hand grenades
For el salvador

There’s a thump, a rumble, and the buildings sway
A soldier fires the acid spray
The public address system starts to play south of the border
You run for cover and hide your eyes
You hear the screams from paradise
They’ve fallen further than you realize
In el salvador

Just like poland is ’protected’ by her russian friends
The junta is ’assisted’ by americans
And if 60 million dollars seems too much to spend
In el salvador

They say for half a billion they could do it right
Bomb all day, burn all night
Until there’s not a living thing upright
In el salvador

They’ll continue training troops in the usa
And watch the nuns that got away
And teach the military bands to play south of the border
And kill the people to set them free
Who put this price on their liberty?
Don’t you think it’s time to leave
El salvador?

"Loving The Alien" David Bowie

Watching them come and go
The Templars and the Saracens
They're travelling the holy land
Opening telegrams

Torture comes and torture goes
Knights who'd give you anything
They bear the cross of Coeur de Leon
Salvation for the mirror blind

But if you pray
all your sins are hooked upon the sky
Pray and the heathen lie will disappear
Prayers they hide
the saddest view
(Believing the strangest things,
loving the alien)

And your prayers they break the sky in two
(Believing the strangest things, loving the alien)

You pray til the break of dawn
(Believing the strangest things, loving the alien)

And you'll believe you're loving the alien
(Believing the strangest things, loving the alien)

Thinking of a different time
Palestine a modern problem
Bounty and your wealth in land
Terror in a best laid plan

Watching them come and go
Tomorrows and the yesterdays
Christians and the unbelievers
Hanging by the cross and nail

Brain Damage ~ Pink Floyd

Post by SETIsLady » 10-20-2010 12:44 AM

The lunatic is on the grass.
The lunatic is on the grass.
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs.
Got to keep the loonies on the path.

The lunatic is in the hall.
The lunatics are in my hall.
The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
And every day the paper boy brings more.

And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

The lunatic is in my head.
The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me 'til I'm sane.
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There's someone in my head but it's not me.

And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear.
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

Eclipse

All that you touch
and all that you see
All that you taste
All you feel.
and all that you love
and all that you hate
All you distrust
All you save.
and all that you give
and all that you deal
and all that you buy,
beg, borrow or steal.
and all you create
and all you destroy
and all that you do
and all that you say.
and all that you eat
And everyone you meet
and all that you slight
And everyone you fight.
and all that is now
and all that is gone
and all that's to come
and everything under the sun is in tune
but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

"There is no dark side of the moon, really. Matter of fact it's all dark."

Inspite of Ourselves - John Prine with Iris DeMent

Post by Glop » 10-20-2010 04:55 AM

She don't like her eggs all runny
She thinks crossin' her legs is funny
She looks down her nose at money
She gets it on like the Easter Bunny
She's my baby I'm her honey
I'm never gonna let her go

He ain't got laid in a month of Sundays
I caught him once and he was sniffin' my undies
He ain't too sharp but he gets things done
Drinks his beer like it's oxygen
He's my baby
And I'm his honey
Never gonna let him go

In spite of ourselves
We'll end up a'sittin' on a rainbow
Against all odds
Honey, we're the big door prize
We're gonna spite our noses
Right off of our faces
There won't be nothin' but big old hearts
Dancin' in our eyes.

She thinks all my jokes are corny
Convict movies make her horny
She likes ketchup on her scrambled eggs
Swears like a sailor when shaves her legs
She takes a lickin'
And keeps on tickin'
I'm never gonna let her go.

He's got more balls than a big brass monkey
He's a wacked out werido and a lovebug junkie
Sly as a fox and crazy as a loon
Payday comes and he's howlin' at the moon
He's my baby I don't mean maybe
Never gonna let him go

In spite of ourselves
We'll end up a'sittin' on a rainbow
Against all odds
Honey, we're the big door prize
We're gonna spite our noses
Right off of our faces
There won't be nothin' but big old hearts
Dancin' in our eyes.
There won't be nothin' but big old hearts
Dancin' in our eyes.

(spoken) In spite of ourselves

I heard this playing today, and can't it get out of my head...

"...are you gonna drop the bomb or not?"

Remember?

I'm not disputing the fact that The Clash was the only band that ever F***ing mattered, but this one (and the video) just sent me reeling through time.
