RE: ~flowers~

Have you been able to get a good copy of it? Flowers by the Emotions

I should be listening to something soothing about now.
I still have the songs you sent in my yahoo account.
good thing I still have them there, the ibook is a washout.

RE: ~flowers~

I'll try to grab it now ..
the song wouldn't be the same without the ending phrase.
the words could be about a lover but if you hear the ending
you know they are singing about their God not a lover.
.. then All the words take on a whole new meaning.
another similar [to me] song is by
The Clark Sisters called: You Brought The Sunshine Into My Life

a good dance tune by the Emotions is "[I] Don't Want To Lose Your Love"

try also Simply Red: "Do The Right Thing" {if you can stay seated while that song plays have someone call for a mortician cuz you're already dead!

RE: ~flowers~

The words go .. "you brought the sunshine into my life" by the Clark Sisters

sure, send them to my yahoo account?
I can't burn CD's without the ibook and this HD is very small.

I have a 6 hr vcr tape of music but unless I put images to it it may not play.
some vcrs won't play the master copy.
My cassette deck crapped out so I used the right and left line inputs for the vcr and ran them to the amplifier, taped the sound from there.
i got creative..
but it won't play if your vcr needs the picture too.
I had to dub it onto another vcr tape and add images to it.
If you can play the tape I made for you, "Berkeley in the 1960's" then
you can play the dubbed copy of the songs.
There is some of everything on that tape.
Jimmie Reed to Jimi Hendrix and everything in between.

Chambers Brothers, Iron Butterfly, Old 50's R&B, Motown, B.B. King, Janis Joplin,
Tina Turner, the Allman Brothers, even some punk rock!
It is a mix of everything I like that has soul.

Now I am in thehouse where all my music is!
The machines that still work need to be set up so I can make tapes.
I have to set up the two turn tables, the reel to reel and a (new) cassette deck.
I have a mixing board but I must build a cabinet for all these pieces of equipment.

I have the bar's amplifier too! :woohoo:
there is too much weighing over myhead for me to delve into any of that now.
I'm not sure how long I can stay in this house.
I have no money to buy anything.
Right now, the piles have piles!
all of what was in the albany house is puked up in the middle of this house.
sorting the gold from the garbage is next step
after I have found a renter and the other house is squared away.
right now, the do is in heat.
if she has puppies it means new life for me but it may mean moving again.
I don't know how long I can stay here even if I wanted to.
my income stops in 9 more years, then I'll surely have to sell something.
This house is too big and too expensive by comparison and the streets here are hills.
When I am old it will be better to live in the small house in the flat streets where (hopefully) I can walk to the bayshore.
They are changing the dog park again!
I have already lived too long!
I don't want to have anymore freedoms taken away! {so sick of life because of that

RE: ~flowers~

cheaper? where, the ghetto?!
there is No way I can buy a different house now.
The cost of the small house was 89,000 but now it wouldn't go for under 300,000

Even if you gave me a house out-right, the property tax would break my back!
It was about $1,200 a year, now it is over $4,000 a year and going up with each bond measure they pass.
in twenty more years it will have doubled a few more times.
I don't see how I will be able to keep up with it.
If I can hold out till I am about 65 I think I can defer the tax till I die,
then the county gets to sell the house for the money owed.

Getting another property in this area is not going to happen and I AM NOT LEAVING!
this is the most beautiful place and it has the best weather.

this area used to be blue collar /Italian
now it is little Asia!
the people who can buy these homes are commuters

not many locals can grow up and buy homes here anymore.

Down with the University of California! they are the reason Berkeley sucks!

RE: ~flowers~

this is very sad, to be born in a place you wont be able to afford.

the students strike is continuing here. this is the 24th day already.
the government want to raise the fee for education in universities, to 3250$. now its 2500 $ per year.
now they are threatening, "if you wont go back and study , you wont have grades" i feel like its one of those big brother movies like 1984.. fucking government

RE: ~flowers~

be careful they don't kick out all the dissenters, you among them.
my tuition at St. Mary's was $4,000 a semester in 1975-1976

go and hang out in the school's library so you show your dedication to your education.
I mention in the other thread, "what about being a teacher?"

You can use all you've learned and build something more with it.

.. thanks for the tunes, I am hearing simply redd [in my head] daily now ..
I wish you'd mail them to my web mail, I can't get it off the desktop!
the only way I can pull the song off this small hard drive is with a travel drive
and then, I have no where to put it, no way to burn it.
the songs you sent me a year ago are still in the yahoo account, even though the computer I had them on is totally useless, the songs are intact in yaboo's web mail.

get an old vcr so you can receive the tape I made!

RE: ~flowers~

in the song Do the Right Thing:
"it's getting harder now .. I feel like sinking farther down" ..
"get up off your back boy! Do the right thing!"


It is so hard to keep motivated, the more I see the more disenchanted I become.
I have to remind myself, the challenge is to remain true to myself
for there is no way to win the game of life, we all lose it in the end.

Quoting Janis Joplin: Do Not Compromise Yourself, It's All you Got

I'm telling your little man in the sketch to "pull himself together" = retain his identity and hold on to those dreams!
otherwise what?
is there even a choice?

RE: ~flowers~

"Love is a flower from God above.." getting in touch with that emotion is the best that it gets.

I get it from my dogs.
For as many minutes, hours, days I can be in that moment, I have succeeded.

I was always "on-the-way-to the next moment, not fully present .. always thinking of what is next {that was a mistake because the future never works out according to plan

"let that flower bloom all over you, all over the world" { if I am blissful, I project that and I pass it on.
^That is how to make things better.

the end is missing from Flowers
It should say: Be Not Dismayed What 'Ere the Tide .. God Will Take Care Of You"

there's something in the way they say the words that makes me trust and believe them.

Do you know, some people manage to get through life without ever feeling love for anything outside themselves?
It is my opinion that unless someone has felt love for something living they have not really been alive.

RE: ~flowers~

.. what if all we have to do to fight against "evil" is to be happy?
"resist ye not evil, lest you give it a foot-hold"
It helps to suppose there is another arena, a bigger picture, where good will out weigh evil.
Aloksave's blog had a story about "tapestry" and how it looks like a mess from underneath;
the pattern is only dissernable from above.

"I'm telling your little man in the sketch to "pull himself together" = retain his identity and hold on to those dreams!

this is so true, without the dreams and ideals , one is nothing.

i cant imagine a human who all his life never felt love to anyone else.
love is a biological evolutionary thing, we all have it.
if such person exist , he should be called handicapped, love-handicapped

did you ever see janis live?
she is one of my top favorite, she is full of life. i wish she is still alive.
what is your favorite song by her?
mine is summertime , the one in the "Live At Winterland" album in particular
i can send it to you if you want

btw i did send you the files to your yahoo account, and not as links
the email subject is songs and i wrote "not links this time" look for it in your inbox

and he needs every part of himself if he wants to realize those dreams.
giving up parts of one's self to fit in is
what I think of as "compromising your self" too much.

that would be Charles' biggest handicap {in my eyes.
He says he loves my dog but his actions scream otherwise.
He walks right by the dog 90% of the time like he isn't there!
He comes to greet the dog when he is in the mood to suck up some affection, then he seems to forget all about the poor guy!
Last week we had a picnic for the dog's 13th birthday. Charles got up and left the yard, the dog freaks out and goes looking for him. Blind and half deaf, Charles is upstairs and the dog can't figure that out. As he comes downstairs he headed out the door without a glance back to the dog!
I had to ask him to come in and say goodbye to him!
The poor dog sees Charles go by and ignore him most of the time.
We don't live there now and he misses Charles a lot.
It is inconceivable to me HOW can he say he loves this dog and not take into concideration his feelings?
There are too many people who have not ever loved in the sense I mean the word.

I saw her at Winterland after she left Big Brother & the Holding co.
I think it was then called The Kosmic Blues Band
That album she did [before] with Big Brother was her at her best.
The cuts I like off that are I Need a Man, Piece of My Heart and Ball and Chain.
By the time I saw her again she was with a different band, her last one.
It was end of the summer of 1970, she was at the santa clara fair grounds. I drove my 57 chevy, the one that was always gettinng me stranded.. I went alone, misssed the turn and found myself in the santa cruz mountains! I turned around, got to the concert and "sat" [there were no seats] about 5 people back from the front of the stage. I had a good view, too good ..
her face was so pock-marked, it was like she'd had small pox!
She was belting down Southern Comfort & coke out of a 16 oz dixy cup.
She could still jump up and kick for those finales but her eyes looked like they were "all pupil" {very dialated.
she looked zonked.
Colleen saw her in the daylight once. Janis was at the pound looking for her dog.
I remember at the time, people thought Janis was buring the candle at both ends.
Her voice [it was said] was going, nodules on her vocal cords or something.
It was starting to sound like she gargled with Draino.
Way back when, Eda said Jim saw Janis hanging out on Telegraph Ave with her guitar, a nobody, before her record Bye Bye Baby came out.
the other woman singer of that time was Grace Slick.
have a look at her lately?
it'd scare me to imagine what Janis'd be like now. :smellie_fear:

Oh Goody! It will be a while longer before I can think about spending money on that ibook.
The songs should be safe in yahoo.

RE: ~flowers~

seeing Janis after she left Big Brother & the Holding Co. was a downer.
I really didn't get off on her sound with that band she formed.
Songs like Me and Bobby McGee just don't light my fire.
I liked the one about the Mercedes Benz ..
"dialing for dollars is trying to find me" {that was a hoot!

Grace Slick went to the high school my Mom taught at.
I don't think Grace was in her class, my Mom taught the smart ones ..
When her band was called Jefferson AIrplane, I liked them.
The first/best song is "Somebody to Love"
the time I saw them "live" they did songs from their album "Bless It's Pointed Little Head"
Bear Melt, Rock me baby, the entire album is good and should be played start to finish.
How about Creedence Clearwater? they were from here too.
Keep on Chooglin' is a long song, so is Suzie Q
I think the album [I have] is called Green River.

another album I can play the whole thing, both sides, is The Fresh Cream's first one: Disraeli Gears
That is one to trip out on!
I love Sunshine of Your Love!
and so funny at the end, "my baby has gone down the drainpipe"{a child's song
They have a double album called wheels of fire and then they changed their name to Blind faith. their best record was called Do What You Like

there are not too many records I can stand to hear played front and back.
Usually they might have one or two good songs only.
Stevie wonder's album "songs in the key of life" {that is an exception!
I like to play "IF it's magic" and "As" in a mix with "Flowers" and sometimes I add in Love's Light in Flight {from Stevie's sound track to the movie Woman in Red w/Kelly Le Brock
she was so hot, standing on that air grating in the beginning of the flick.
Another one to hear front to back is Freak Out by the Mothers of Invention
Have you heard Buffalo Springfield's "for What IT's Worth"?
that is very political.
It came out at the end of 66, beginning of 67 {that is when the music changed
Underground stations on the FM band began playing songs with a message, songs longer than about 2 1/2 minutes were not played on A.M. radio.

RE: ~flowers~

I saw Jimi Hendrix at the Oakland Coliseum, a sit-down venue, not the usual type of place for him to play.
Maybe that gave him "attitude"? I don't know, some one yelled out to him:
"Hey Man, You're GREAT!" his reply seemd really rude
"I Know" {he said it so conceeded! it fostered in me and Eda an instant dislike for him.

Lucky to have been here, yes.
I was just a bit too young to drive, my parents had to take us to the concert.
By the time I could drive, The Avalon Ballroom was closed.
All that was left were the places run by Bill Graham

I read Bill Graham was a prick, interested in money more than the music.
Chet Helms was "the father of the era" but somehow I went without knowing who he was till he died 2 years ago!

have you seen the movie Monterey Pop?
that was the first, the better "woodstock"
the 'end' was when the stones played at Altamont and the hell's angels let someone get stabbed.
People seemed to have gotten Nutty!
we were all cool at those concerts with no designated seating but
later on the people stomped on each other! now that kind off "general seating" is not allowed.
One might ask, why the last woodstock festival turned into such a mud bath?!
is it the drugs that has changed the people? Speed? Crack?
acid isn't the same any more, they've screwed the recipe up!
Peter Coyote said, "it was speed that ruined the haight.
speed freaks are paranoid and they are rip-off artists.
Is it a government plot that it is easier to get crack than pot? {I do!
Sibyl's brother got into crack, she swears this is true:
Once someone uses crack they are lost, they don't ever come back from it.

RE: ~flowers~

the fact that you could drive when the party was over sucks!
i love janis singing me and boby, she give it a nice soul addition , and the summertime version in winterland was really good. do you remember it?
the new guitar player was better than with big brother company i feel.

and yeh, i heard about hendrix personality, i heard an interview with someone close to him saying hendrix didnt like playing in concerts after a while he just had enough, he stopped playing for the love of music, and started doing that for the audience demand.

did you ever see dylan? or baez? ray charles? james brown?
