took a long walk with 'rocks in our pockets' for the neighbors herd of dogs and we got to humming this song so when we got back I had to find the words and then thought I'd post here....showing my age, again....


"Flashback Blues" is track #1 on the album John Prine.

While window shopping through the past
I ran across a looking glass
Reflecting moments remaining in a burned out light
Tragic magic prayers of passion
Stay the same through changing fashions
They freeze my mind like water on a winter's night

Spent most of my youth
Out hobo cruising
And all I got for proof
Is rocks in my pockets and dirt in my shoes
So goodbye nonbeliever
Don't you know that I hate to leave here
So long babe, I got the flashback blues

Photographs show the laughs
Recorded in between the bad times
Happy sailors dancing on a sinking ship
Cloudy skies and dead fruit flies
Waving goodbye with tears in my eyes
Well, sure I made it but ya know it was as hell of a trip

Spent most of my youth
Out hobo cruising
And all I got for proof
Is rocks in my pockets and dirt in my shoes
And ten times what it grieves you
That's how much more I hate to leave you now
So long babe, I got the flashback blues

Spent most of my youth
Out hobo cruising
And all I got for proof
Is rocks in my pockets and dirt in my shoes
So goodbye nonbeliever
Don't you know that I hate to leave here
So long babe, I got the flashback blues

Songwriters
PRINE, JOHN

Lyrics © Warner/Chappell Music, Inc.






...and this one to inspire a generation or two
"Blow up your TV, throw away your paper
Go to the country, build you a home
Plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches
Try an' find Jesus on your own"

Leila, I love that one too! such an 'insider' chuckle.......'Illegal Smile'
....These are songs every good hippie should know..........kumbaya was day camp (10-12 years old) at the YWCA but John Prine songs were what we sang on our 'homestead' around the fire with some homebrew. I learned most of them before I ever heard all his records...one of the folks living with us knew most of them on his twelve string.

here's another........

It was pouring this morning. It cleared up but I was inside all day sweeping and dusting and organizing. I made sure to leave plenty of spider habitat, which is pretty much anything too far over my head. I've been listening to a lot of sludge and stoaner metal, most of which isn't metal.

Willy Wonka is not usually my day to day listening but I think I did manage to get subtext this time round.

My friend tried turning me onto this some time in the only slightly hazy past right about when Karma ran over my Dogma at Dharma.



One thing I will say about Baroness: They consistently have blow you away cover art.

Steve plays guitar and among a huge stack of music had these lyrics written out but we couldn't remember who wrote the song........thanks to the internet I found that it was a Leo Kottke song... we had just forgotten...thought of Tom Waits first actually....

'Jack Gets Up'
Everyday in the morning when you get up and you crawl out of bed
And you crawl out of bed and you crawl out of bed
Everyday in the morning when you get up and you crawl out of bed
And you look at the moon where the window is
And the stars shine, and the stars shine, and the stars shine
Everyday in the morning when you get up and you crawl out of bed

And way down below in the sun belt
And the telephones, and the telephone, and the telephones
And you look out the moon where the window is
Everyday in the morning when you get up and you crawl out of bed

And some of us breathe in the brown ground
Where the worms clown, where the worms clown, where the worms clown
Way down below in the sun belt
Everyday in the morning when you get up and you crawl out of bed

And every night when you lay down
You fall flat, you fall flat, you fall flat
Some of us breathe in the brown ground
Everyday in the morning when you get up and you crawl out of bed

So we're asleep in the same dream
In the snort fort, the snort fort, the snort fort
And every night when you lay down
Everyday in the morning when you get up and you crawl out of bed

Santa Claus modified snow peas
On the sun roofs, on the sun roofs, on the sun roofs
So we're asleep in the same dream
Everyday in the morning when you get up and you crawl out of bed

If you look in the mirror it's your father's face
And the thin grin, the thin grin, the thin grin
It's Santa Claus pulling up snow peas
Everyday in the morning when you get up and you crawl out of bed

And there's tears in the bank and the credit card
In the back yard, in the back yard, in the back yard
If you look in the mirror it's your father's face
Everyday in the morning when you get up and you crawl out of bed

And once in a while when the wind blows
And the heart winds, and the heart winds, and the heart winds
There's tears in the bank and a credit card
Everyday in the morning when you get up and you crawl out of bed

But there's lint in the pocket and a breath mint
Or a car key, or a car key, or a car key
Once in a while when the wind blows
Everyday in the morning when you get up and you crawl out of bed

And your kid has a face like a walnut
From the ice cream, from the ice cream, from the ice cream
But there's lint in the pocket and a breath mint
Everyday in the morning when you get up and you crawl out of bed

Everyday in the morning when you get up and you crawl out of bed
Everyday in the morning when you get up and you crawl out of bed

These are my favorite Valentine's Day related songs:





Just a slight warning, there are topless men in the video. Out of context of the movie, this video seems kinda silly. Whatever, the music and idea behind the movie is beautiful!

From one of the sweetest movies I have watched, Were the World Mine. Very heartwarming.



Lastly, if any of these made you cry, here's a laugh:

some more delerium, cause they rock =)

they have lots of different styles. i like the early trance stuff they did the best, lots of drums, no lyrics....


or the later more orchestrated stuff, without lyrics, or very few words....


this one is interesting, especially the female vocalist. they are kinda amorphous, theres different people they have performing with them, not so much a band as a collection of different people at different times. but theres two main people...with different singers.

At the risk of offending everyone in the room or at least the western hemisphere. And probably Russia.

Penny - I really like that sound. The swinging twangy boppin' stuff. Neat sound. I've never heard of David Wilcox.
Dave - That's fuckin' sick. I never heard of the King Blues either and I'm sorta shocked by that. I'll have to check um out.

Speaking of awesome music...

Has anyone seen Jenn Fiorentino's latest cover?


I can't get it out of my head. The chorus is infectious and the song on whole is both haunting and sweet, even if the fact that she's decked out in my school colors is almost certainly pure coincidence.

She's gearing up to tour soon and has been working on a new album. I recommended the 'concert window' service to her and she's going to be playing a LIVE SHOW on tuesday april 14th @ 8pm EST. Who knows what sort of special guests might show up?

https://www.concertwindow.com/85350-jenn-fiorentino

Donations for admission.

I'm going to be there. How could I not be? 1 $ for a live show in the comfort of your home?!

That's an unbelievable deal, and I complain about the price of EVERYTHING

So that's at least two cool, flash, smart, hip, happening, with it folks for ya right there. Wanna be popular? Come on... It's invitation only!

Seriously, check her out! Tell everyone you know to check her out!

She writes her own music which is way better than her covers. And those speak for themselves. I'm really looking forward to the next album.

Hopefully she makes enough money to make the Journey back out west, she puts on a killer live show! She has spectacular stage presence! And that's coming from me, someone who used to go to two or three shows a night, some people just thrive as the center of attention I guess.

Talent needs to be supported and rewarded, damnit! Or that's my opinion anyway.

I had found out about The King Blues when I was perusing the Films For Action website. That website is one that I have recently added to my news sources because they write good articles and keep up to date with some the things going on in activist groups. I was kind of surprised that I enjoyed that song as much as I did, because the Blues and Rock are two music genres that I don't usually listen to. Though, maybe with growing up in Louisiana, it probably should not have surprised me that much. What I like more is the message carried in the song. I would have enjoyed it more if peaceful anarchy was implied instead of violent anarchy, but occasionally depending on situations, it does become necessary for the people to exercise their right to abolish a former government and reinstate a hopefully better one. For, the consent of the governed is the source of government power- power from the people invested into public officials. However, that is a discussion for another time in the Ulcer Factory or Politics subforums.

Judith, I absolutely love that Byrds album and every one of their first four albums. I think the Stones' country songs are underrated. Dead flowers? Awesome.

This is just such a sweet song, and the music video that goes with it is awesome!



Another great song. I found out about this song when it was playing on the radio at a store. That's one of the nice things about radio stations: you hear a variety of music and come across songs you that may not have listened to or heard about otherwise.

This is my live recording of the Irish Traditional group Goitse, an informal Gaelic Irish greeting meaning "come here". I went, and enjoyed them immensely.
