thrusting one man bands from down under into the spotlight

Juzzie Smith - Train Ride


Alone at the end of my cord now
almost giving in but not, still refusing to

not letting it get to me not held by depression,
old age staring back from the mirror

I hang dependant on those who would deny my existence
I no longer know who they are and they say that they don't know me

I took a life's path away from there,
took a different trail, bushwacked the way
away from where I had the cold stone wired
from where other's opinions mattered

finding the fun of it is really the exploration
the finding good stone, new rock to climb
finding that there is good rock everywhere

going up the road of life looking
going exploring for fresh climbing
looking for new rock
finding new things to climb up

Finding good rock here
at the side of the long road home
has been fun and rewarding

I've hankered to protest
to jest
to climb a bit in this new welted form.
My feet don't do it happily any more
not worth the pain from a day of a short hundred feet

I still have it, the obsession; the gnawing
A need to go and give it a look-see
to go explore that contour

still feel the need to retreat into the cathedral
A need to document now because back when
then no one did

More to the point We will remain Un-sung ~
Our Diquent youth is preserved!
Not that anyone was climbing there
Climbing in NJ is again banned!

worm pembroke

twas this chap was always broke
who always wore a silver cloak
we called him worm that was no joke
our every idea with holes he’d poke
while scratching at some poison oak

the worm finished his artichoke
and then leaned in to light a smoke
turning away to cough and choke
he was after all the kind of bloke
who said stay awhile and have a toke

twas all in the way he often spoke
that classic need to pause and evoke
on classical music but never baroque
before heading to the loo to soak
in obligatory lines of coke

for he fancied he would oft invoke
an argument that’s how he spoke
an antagonist at every stroke
the worm did relish to unyoke
our reveries his masterstroke

twas a chap was always broke
we called him worm that was no joke
till years went by and he did provoke
the powers that be to cool his stoke
and snuff him with a massive stroke

I was and I went - I saw and I sent

rock called to me, I could depend on it,
permanence enticed me,
I could return again and again
finding the same thing

I got to share in the climbing
doing some of the earliest accents
of now-classic lines

Too - also, I bathed In far-flung streams and springs
shared magic places, sang songs of our own
 experienced Oasis
and went trippin' to the oasis
of the group mind of rock climbing

I climbed and partied with many of the best that ever were
as Galen said, we knew we were lucky
-taking off from real life, at least for a while,
there would a comeuppance for all the up cometh
(if we lived long enough)

getting to drive into ends of the canyons, getting blitzed too
All metaphors; we all slept in the dirt
bellow objectives we tried to send in a non-stop long day

Rocks and mountain chains we have in common
redemption, Validation only Good Yo-Yo`s
Only good Yo-yos Ever Needed to go
so only good Yo-yos ever applied
Only the good Yo-yos went to those places

They call it a Harp Guitar ?
A monstrosity of wood 'n strings
sounds cool must weigh a good bit

One Way Out

And Lord, your neighbors, no they won't be
Talking that stuff that they don't know
Lord, I'm foolish to be here in the first place

Too much of nothing
Can make a man feel ill at ease
One man's temper might rise
While another man's temper might freeze
In the day of confession
We cannot mock a soul
Oh, when there's too much of nothing
No one has control

Say hello to Valerie
Say hello to Vivian
Give them all my salary
On the waters of oblivion

When there's too much of nothing
It can 'cause a man to weep
He can walk the streets and boast like most
Of what it's like to keep
But it's all been done before
It's all written in the book
And when there's too much of nothing
Nobody should look

Say hello to Valerie
Say hello to Vivian
Give them all my salary
On the waters of oblivion

And too much of nothing
Can make a man a liar
It can 'cause one man to sleep on nails
It can 'cause others to eat fire
Everybody's doin' somethin'
I heard it in a dream
But when there's too much of nothing
It just makes a fella mean

Say hello to Valerie
Say hello to Vivian
Give them all my salary
On the waters of oblivion

Over the years the deformity has taken on a sort of strange set of symptoms.
 thick callused' 'hoods' of skin overlapping the base of the toenail
that then after being in hot tight sweaty shoes for a few hundred feet of climbing softens-up and rubs raw(ish)
This spot softens and tears, a 'micro-flapper', leaving a small 'avulsion'
I get a 'nasty hole' in the top edge of my little toe where the nail meets the thick callus.

(thinking of adding a picture, this thread needs pictures)

I've been tied to a rope from the time that I could almost walk; at the age of 3 or 4.
by 5 I was climbing, at 8 swinging leads in a sort of way; taking the last 10-40 feet.
 leading off the top of things, even setting the rap.

As a rule, I'm not necessarily a fan of the bossman. Especially, considering recent changes in the climate. Still, there should be exceptions to rules.... .

Bruce is a great performer

Puts his heart into it

The only good fish is a Sam Fish

And not fish

As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect.”

Ha! zB





I had good reason to think it was THAT BOSS THOUGH:


a 17 SONG SHOW all Just Published on May 4, 2019

! ! ! !

 here are 3 or 4 OF 17 !
from a dude who has no quit

Bruce Springsteen performing an intro.
into "O Mary Don't You Weep",
live at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, 2006

 Open All Night",

Well, I had the carburetor, baby, cleaned and checked
With her line blown out she's hummin' like a turbojet
Propped her up in the backyard on concrete blocks
For a new clutch plate and a new set of shocks
Took her down to the carwash, check the plugs and points
Well, I'm goin' out tonight, I'm gonna rock that joint
Early north Jersey industrial skyline
I'm a all-set cobra jet creepin' through the nighttime
Gotta find a gas station, gotta find a pay phone
This turnpike sure is spooky at night when you're all alone
Gotta hit the gas, baby, I'm running late
This New Jersey in the mornin' like a lunar landscape
Now the boss don't dig me, so he put me on the night shift
It takes me two hours to get back to where my baby lives
In the wee wee hours your mind gets hazy
Radio relays towers, won't you lead me to my baby
Underneath the overpass, trooper hits his party light switch
Good night, good luck, one, two power shift
I met Wanda when she was employed
Behind the counter at Route 60 Bob's Big Boy
Fried chicken on the front seat, she's sitting in my lap
We're wiping our fingers on a Texaco road map
I remember Wanda up on scrap metal hill
With them big brown eyes that make your heart stand still
Hoo hoo, whoa!
Oh now, hey
Well at 5 a.m. oil pressure's sinking fast
I make a pit stop, wipe the windshield, check the gas
Gotta call my baby on the telephone
Let her know that her daddy's coming on home
Sit tight, little mama, I'm a-coming around
I got a three more hours but I'm covering ground
Your eyes get itchy in the wee wee hours
Sun's just a red ball rising over them refinery towers
Radio's jammed up with gospel stations
Lost souls calling long distance salvation
Hey mister deejay won't you hear my last prayer
Hey ho rock 'n roll deliver me from nowhere
Hey da da di da, di da da
Oh hey da da di da, di da da
Oh hey da da di da, di da da

Jacob's Ladder

Pay Me My Money Down
(Live at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, 2006)

This is the link to all 17 songs
A really powerful show from the master;
 this show coming just months after Hurricane Katrina wiped out 70% of New Orleans


Feelin' the times
A thing that needs to be heard here in this no place,
With a nod to Woody Guthrie, & a stage full of great musicians
Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band
with Tom Morello from the band 'Rage Against the Machine'
 Madison Square Garden, NYC - (R)October/29&30/2009
Published on Dec 29, 2009

- Ghost of Tom Joad

Men walking 'long the railroad tracks
Going someplace, there's no going back
Highway patrol choppers coming up over the ridge
Hot soup on a campfire under the bridge
Shelter line stretching 'round the corner
Welcome to the new world order
Families sleeping in the cars in the southwest
No home, no job, no peace, no rest
Well the highway is alive tonight
But nobody's kidding nobody about where it goes
I'm sitting down here in the campfire light
Searching for the ghost of Tom Joad
He pulls a prayer book out of his sleeping bag
Preacher lights up a butt and he takes a drag
Waiting for when the last shall be first and the first shall be last
In a cardboard box 'neath the underpass
You got a one-way ticket to the promised land
You got a hole in your belly and a gun in your hand
Sleeping on a pillow of solid rock
Bathing in the city's aqueduct
Well the highway is alive tonight
Where it's headed everybody knows
I'm sitting down here in the campfire light
Waiting on the ghost of Tom Joad
Now Tom said, "Mom, wherever there's a cop beating a guy
Wherever a hungry newborn baby cries
Where there's a fight against the blood and hatred in the air
Look for me, Mom, I'll be there
Wherever somebody's fighting for a place to stand
Or a decent job or a helping hand
Wherever somebody's struggling to be free
Look in their eyes, Ma, and you'll see me"
The highway is alive tonight
Where it's headed everybody knows
I'm sitting down here in the campfire light
With the ghost of old Tom Joad



zB gnows I've watched everyone of those
and I too have a hard time picking only three
(Really all of them are that great)
so 8 or 9 ? no problems hearin' it again
Itz what Does the trick
Shake 'Em on Down !

Along those Ry Cooder&David Lindley type lines

Acoustic Jorma & Jack from just a few days back

Hot Tuna Friday, April 5th 2019

So, this just happened & I was watching to see if was meant to be
A show I'd of gone to if the rains & the drive weren't combined

ya gnow I get sleepy
real narcoleptic driving the silly Prius-type thing

\a bloody golf-cart-like ride, not a growling active drive
lulls you to sleep if you can't keep the windows down
(& I stuck those cheesy plastic visors onto the chrome trim)

The place is one of those places, special, small
especially to see Jack & Jorma

It's so small you could fly paper airplanes around the place
from the balcony to the feet of the guy on base.

there aren't many places that still hold this sort of attraction
A great place to go to
to see a live show at any price
 never mind~

 a dime for beer

"~Don't go home yet~"
