PALE BLUE ALERT! (vaguely climbing-referenced remarks)

"If the fight gets hot, the songs get hotter. If the fight gets tough, the songs get toughter."

"It don't pay to organize unless you are organized."

"There's several ways of saying what's on your mind. And in states and counties where it aint't too healthy to talk too loud, speak your mind, or even vote like you want to, folks have found other ways of getting the word around. One of the mainest ways is by singing....No matter who makkes it up, no matter who sings it and who don't, if it talks the lingo of the people, it's a cinch to catch on, and will be sung here and yonder for a long time after you've cashed inyour chips."

"When the going gets weird, the weird get going."

"The bagpipe music got me jonesing for a single malt so I got some."

Which of the quotes above is not from WBraun? (Merry's quote)

Which one is bogus? (WBraun's)

Which one is not the quote you were seeking? (all the above)

Which one is Weird Al's? (who?)

Which is Bob Dylan's favorite? (not a clue)

Case in point, when I Muvrini first started singing and writing songs (around 1979-80) the French government tried to put a stop to them saying they were subversive and seeking revolution merely because they were singing in Corsican not French. They used to be met by the gendarmes and the mayor of the town before they could set up their stages. The people got wind of it and they would all congregate somewhere else and thus the French government's ban on their performances actually increased I Muvrini's popularity. Now, they are a supergroup, and one of the most popular bands in Europe They play stadiums where thousands of people come to see them.

And one of my favorite songs from their new album for which I did the photography.

Gnawa trance music of Morocco

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYOFHm8gXeg

and one of the most beautiful songs of the Berber people

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHaFzkgk_Bs

and another song of revolution and the fall of Spanish fascism

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4g_Og3EiUM

and it would have been songs such as this that gave I Muvrini their "ribellu" status

In other words, how to stay out of Werner's hair.

Everybody that goes to the Valley goes for a reason.

But nobody wants to stay just one season.

Why, that rhymes with Phil Gleason!

Happy Pholidays, Hill!

Woe. Torn.

We'll see. Who is my name?

What I am trying to say is that PG was one of those question marks in my/our understanding of who was just exactly who and what were they doing here? Intricacies of partnership, levels of accomplishment, it don't mean ship unless you put your ghosts to rest.

And entertain myth.

Marie's former house at Derby & Piedmont





Not Marie, Maria Sabina (Curandera)




In 1955, Gordon Wasson and Allan Richardson, made history by becoming the first documented --- or at least widely publicized --- white men KNOWN to have participated officially in the nocturnal mushroom ceremony. Under the guidance of Maria Sabina, Wasson and Richardson each consumed six pairs of the mushroom Psilocybe caerulescens var. mazatecorum after which they began to feel the effects, manifesting visions of geometric patterns, palaces, and architectural vistas. The results of that experience was published in Life Magazine, May 13 1957, in an article titled "Seeking the Magic Mushroom." That article is considered the inspiration for Dr. Timothy Leary and others to try similar mushrooms and halucinogens.


Waitin' for the tie in? Don't rush me big boyz and girlz. But here's a little tip for youze: The Walrus was Paul and where there's someone been smoking there was once a Flame.
