He is getting around with a walker a little better. He sees the doctor on Thursday. Hopefully the staples in his leg will come out then and the stitches on his forehead.

And yeah, he seriously looks like his dad, Randy

Good to hear he is doing better. I thought Mellencamp's name was John.

Hey Mouse, What happened to visiting Cosmic?

Howard Weamer came through Chico last year and did Poker NIght with Richard Pirrelli, at my buddy, Roland's place. He's an Ostrander institution and speaks fluent Japanese as I recall. We also have one of his framed photos of a grove of aspens prominently displayed in the very room I'm typing in.

Just got this clip from atop Mt U-tube from my brother's good pal and one of my NY birding buddies, Hannah Marcus. She also helps front the Wingdale Community Singers with writer, Rick Moody and occasional gigs with Godspeed You Black Emporer.

Just got back from nita's mom's christmas shindig. We did a couple of Christmas classics with her family with me ukulele.

Hope you like Hanna's song. She's very talented. And Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

Faith is the surrender of the mind; its the surrender of reason, its the surrender of the only thing that makes us different from other mammals.* Its our need to believe, and to surrender our skepticism and our reason, our yearning to discard that and put all our trust or faith in someone or something, that is the sinister thing to me. Of all the supposed virtues, faith must be the most overrated.--C.H.

*Call me a stupid monkey. But if I believe I have a soul and he does not believe he has one, that stupid monkey Hitchens doesn't have to worry about going to hell and he's no better-off than a monkey except for the shoes, etc. Gee, he sounds awfully well-read to be such a prick.

But in charity, I'll overlook it. He's the overrated one.

Alas, I think he's on to something. A prick for sure, but I gotta agree with him.

sinister is (among others) wicked or criminal or

giving the impression that something harmful or evil is happening or will happen

coming late to the discussion, does he give an explanation of the progression from faith to evil and what the actual consequences are?

zBrown I am not sure what Mellencamp's first name is as I don't think I know him. Perhaps Mouse knows. The name is familiar but I cannot remember if I ever met him.

Melon-head? Jawin' Cougar Melon-head, could've become the biggest realty magnate in the world, had he not embraced Pink Houses & small towns.

This is precious. It is barely conceiveable that an American of Gypsy's age doesn't even know who JCM is.
This is kind of his real self, here. His vocal style is what you might call distinctive. He does know rock, damn sure.

Still, if you need Pink, the best place to go is in New York.

Your friends have no problem with "camp."

When did you leave Santa Cruz, Gypsy, and for how long have you lived in Asheville? You probably said, but I forgot, if you did.

There was an excelllent all-woman band from Santa Cruz in the nineties, one of whom had spent time in W.Africa honing her drumming skills. One of their best songs was titled Big Girl, I think.--"I'm a big girl now..."
It was a quite large group of seven or eight.

Do you recall them?

BIG GRIN!

A song for your son, with his close call.

And I have been trying to find Pele Juju's name for months, now. THANKS.

Liz and I and Scott saw them and John Prine at the Music Festival up at Kennedy Meadows in '91 or '92. Liz loved them. I liked John Prine. We each bought tapes.

Amazing how changing to a minor key can also alter the song's meaning.

Hey mouse. Maybe you're thinking of High Sierra music fest when it used to be held at Leland Meadows. nita and I saw Prine there.

Just like Strawberry music festival, both quickly outgrew Leland Meadows. Strawberry remains at Camp Mather. High Sierra went to Bear Valley until a late snow year made it difficult so it moved to Quincy.

So I got it now Robbie; John C. Mellencamp is Randy's dad. Thanks mouse.

I don't know, just something about authority, it's always been sinister to me.

I will not work on Maggiore's farm any more

"Death is not an event in life: we do not live to experience death.
If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness,
then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present."

High Sierra went to Bear Valley until a late snow year made it difficult so it moved to Quincy.

I attended a High Sierra Music Festival with my wife and daughter about a decade ago. My daughter Hannah about 11/12 yrs. old at the time, remembers
it as the hippie festival.LOL
I'm a big Bruce Hornsby fan so I went to see him primarily but also enjoyed Leftover Salmon, Sting Cheese Incident and others.
Peace,Love,Dope!
