abandoned pools for rock( the remedy is really good)

billy talent for punk

  Nina Simone is fantastic. I love her version, as well as anything she's done. Sinner Man (it was in the end scene of the newer "Thomas Crown Affair") and Feeling Good are mind boggling fantastic.

  you know, I saw the new animals play, with Eric Burdon. They played don't let me be misunderstood, and kinds of other great stuff, but you just KNEW that people wanted to hear rising sun. and then they were all 'okay, thanks, bye' and lotsa people left being all grumbly. and then, when about half the people were gone, they came back and played it. it was way cool. coz I was still there. And that song is very special to me. My dad used to travel a lot, especially to Japan, and when he had to do Karaoke (hey man, he had to be polite and sociable with the Japanese people, he ate a live eel once...) that was his Karaoke song. so it reminds me of my dad. its our bond kinda thing. coz he's a cyborg, and doesn't have emotions, so we bond via musical data.

that's really sad and cool at the same time, Ms. Oh

But you know me, I'm an emotional sap.
Lately, reading some of the posts written here about death, beatings, separations, etc..., I get all mushy inside and just want to give (as puck is wont to do) everyone a great big hug. Even chanz, who would prolly hit me over the head for doing it : )

  it is a bit sad. but he shows his love in other ways. he used to clean our schoolshoes for us. and i found out that my friend, who has a dad who is also an electrical engineer/cyborg, also had her shoes cleans as a gesture of love.

Is that Bobby D's Sara? I love that song, makes me feel so good,


on a darker note Bobs version of Man of consdtant sorrow is weak, to be fair it is on his first album which is in general pretty weak and he was like 19/20 when he did it.


Any fans of Joan Baez?

  The House Of The Rising Sun
by The Animals

There is a house in New Orleans,
They call the rising sun.
It's been the ruin of many a poor Boy,
and God I know I'm one.

My mother was a tailor,
she sewed my new blue jeans.
My father was a gamblin' man,
down in New Orleans.
Now the only thing a gambler needs is
a suitcase and a trunk.
And the only time he'll be satisfied
Is when he's on a drug.

Oh mother, tell your children,
Not to do what I have done.
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the house of the Rising Sun.

With one foot on the platform,
the other on the train.
I'm goin down to New Orleans to wear that ball and chain.....

There is a house in New Orleans
They call the rising sun
Its been the ruin
of many a-poor boys
And god I know I'm one
