    I was at The Belly Up Tavern to see Tom Morello (acoustic band, horsemen or some shit)
    Having a ball at the bar with a woman I'd just met.
    Morello stopped the music and told us to shut the fuck up.
    I told him to play on muthufucka, which he did.
    T'was a fantastic weekend with that gal.
    Totally unrelated to this thread, but enjoying tanq gin for breakfast right now.

    Take me home
    Country roads
    To the Place
    Where I belong. Aroooooooooh!

    Oh, not that one? How about: Sunshine On My Shoulders?

    I love me some John Denver when I am in the right mood. Gordon Lightfoot works well in that genre as well.

    It was Sunshine on my Shoulder. :D

    I was belting it out like Mariah Carey at the World Series. :crackup:

    In the interests of balance, I played some Sepultura afterwards. 6yo did her her best head banging impersonation!

    Few weeks ago, a pair of serendipitous events found me: a buddy sent me an old concert vid, then I got dropped (hard) by 'Rona and 5 days of quarantine/iso. These two occurrences sent me waaaaaay down a 4-decade Rush rabbit hole.

    Yes, I know. A polarizing band for sure, I get it. Plenty of acts mentioned upthread make me want to claw my eyeballs out.
    To each their own.

    Been a fun and fulfilling journey, catching up on back-catalogue stuff I'd overlooked for many, many years.

    Spun up 1993's "Counterparts" album on my morning drive.
    Fit my mood well, been humming those tunes for past 2 hrs.

    Kinda wondering how long I'm gonna be down here. I think I see a tiny spot of light far above.
    Wife & kid have been rolling their eyes and chuckling...not sorry.

    Have a nice weekend, folks.

    Probably the most outrageous quote from a musician came from Jeff. "I think I might be a better welder than guitar player."

    Something happened last week, can’t even remember what it was, but got me remembering the album Throwing Copper by Live. Tonight after getting home I was relaxing and the lyrics to “T.B.D.” started echoing in my head, so I looked the song up and read up on what it was all about. It recounts Aldous Huxley’s final moments, being loaded up with LSD and being read to from the Tibetan Book of the Dead.

    Which brought to mine just how ignorant of the world beyond my own minuscule little spot in it I was at 23, and how 29 years later I’m still completely fucking ignorant of the world beyond my slightly larger but still insignificant little spot in it.

    Makes me really wish I had more of an appreciation and thirst for reading when I was younger. Still can’t sit down and read without turning a dozen pages without remembering a fucking thing I’ve read, and soon thereafter I start snoring.

    So I’m gonna listen to Live. All you Leary-Heads drop some blotter in my honor.
