god Concentration Moon
Over the camp in the valley
Concentration Moon
Wish I was back in the alley
With all of my friends still running free
Hair growing out every hole in me

American Way,
How did it start?
Thousands of creeps,
Killed in the park
American Way,
Try and explain
Scab of a nation,
Driven insane

Don't cry,
Gotta go, Bye-bye
Suddenly die, die
(Cop kill a creep: Pow Pow Pow)

GARY KELLGREN: Tomorrow I get to do another Frank Zappa creation . . . and the day after that . . . and the day after that . . . also at the same time I get to work with The Velvet Underground which is as shitty a group as Frank Zappa's group

JCB: Hi, boys & girls, I'm Jimmy Carl Black, and I'm the Indian of the group

Concentration Moon
Over the camp in the valley
Concentration Moon
Wish I was back in the alley
With all of my friends still running free
Hair growing out every hole in me

American Way,
Threatened by us
Drag a few creeps,
Away in a bus
American Way,
Prisonerólock
Smash every creep,
In the face with a rock

Don't cry,
Gotta go, Bye-bye
Suddenly die, die
(Cop kill a creep: Pow Pow Pow)

Dafremen Silly Taurus do0d! Heheheh knock it off man!

Please see: Appreciation

I had another one of those weird intuition gushers(epiphanies?! shudder). I saw more into what it is that fools us and keeps us from seeing the reality of what is all around us.

We humans ARE pretty friggin silly looking do0d. I can only hope that we're the only ones that are capable of seeing HOW silly looking. (Don't count on it though.)

Dafremen Holy crap do0d, I just saw my kid watching T.V. The brain is pampering itself with some Disney(I did NOT have anything to do with the selection, that was her choice) and a tasty apple, not bad...long as the exercise gets in there for the other body parts.

Entertainers...highly paid because they.....entertain the brains.

Think about it. Stimulate the brain baby. That's what we're doing. We're not on a quest for discovery...we're on an exodus from boredom. Why though? There's so much to do, so much to enjoy and be excited by, afraid of, delighted by....if we didn't make everything so gawddamned SAFE and known and destroy whatever might throw little variety into the mix. Somewhere between absolute rule and absolute anarchy lies the way. I am almost certain that it doesn't begin with tolerance or compassion first.

I don't think empathy is it, but it don't hurt to have some. I'm pretty sure it begins with something as simple as respect.

Respect for one another and a demand of respect from one another.

Respect for our goals, common AND divided.

Respect of the right of each man to have those goals regardless of their alignment to our own.

Respect for ourselves and the things around us, without which there would be no show. By all means, look around you without a moment's thought to your own desires at the time. Appreciate the scenery, if it sucks, move on...

Ohh yea concentration moon has soon shone it's last and the moonset looks as though it's going to be a glorious one. Strange times ahead T.J. change ahead. Scary times, but glorious days ahead after that, it's gunna rock br0.
Enjoy the show! : )

Teenage Jesus You always give me so much to think about; I can never get all my thoughts into this box (in spite of the scroll bar.) The Taurus full moon was indeed a glorious one. (I got to view it for a bit when I took out the trash last night.)

Your citation of respect as a basis for living well is a good one. If you think about it, once you commit to respect, exercising it really doesn't take much effort. It just happens.

One of the underlying themes that comes through in your writing (and correct me if I'm wrong) is responsibility for one's self. And by the same token, one's inherent lack of responsibility/control of others (a good thing!) This to me (aside form some asthetic qualities) is where a great deal of our affinity lies.

Basically "get your own shit together, man." This simple philosophy (along with my healthy Taurus hedonism) has guided my path for a little over 15 years. It's amazing how everything seems to fall into place.

Strange times indeed. The funny thing about this Psy Op is the unabashed gaul of those pulling it off. I don't know who they are. I do end up wasting my time thinking about the details. It's really more of a fascination with all the seeminly unbelievable details...like reading a good book. "Soylent Green IS PEOPLE!!"

Anyway, that's history. One big Psy Op. I believe in everyone's ability to break free. It's a simple case of "I'm not playing your game anymore. I'm going to play my game with others who are playing theirs. Your's is no fun, and plus you cheat."

I gave up being an activist about this (if I cannot whoop it, I will go down)a long time ago. Whether we like it or not, we, as we live, serve as examples...in template form, not specifics. This is how eventually, evolution will make it's choices. Living for anything other than right now for this reason is wasteful madness.

I would add also that (and I don't care one bit about what anybody thinks about this) love is an extremely important element. I can't explain it; I just know it's true.

You're right. It's all scenery, when you get down to it. I think this would be more understood if folks knew more about physics.

Do the Voodoo
View the Doodoo
See the Shit

...and as you say, if you don't like it, move on. In the coming Good Times (which started 5 minutes ago!) we can all be Rawk Gawds!

angie blue moon
you saw me stading alone
without a dream in my heart
without a love of my own
blue moon
you knew just what i was there for
you heard me saying a prayer for
someone i really could care for
then in the midst appeared before me
the only one my arms could ever hold
i heard somebody whisper 'please adore me'
and when i looked the moon had turned to gold
blue moon
now im no longer alone
without a dream in my heart
without a love of my own

I sang that song...
The first time I met you
I sang that song for you
I was so nervous...and intimidated.
I wonder what you thought of me.
Such an odd beginning...
To something that could have such a wonderful ending
If you just let it.
If you just call me.
You are everywhere...In my dreams...In the moon...Everywhere.
Just be here now.
