Two Rivers

 

 

Something I threw together for all of you and none of you…this is from an album that came out in 1987 called Up on the Sun, by the Meat Puppets. Some of you may be familiar, many of you are not. Probably one of the most underexposed yet highly influential bands in relation to anything after the mid to late 1980’s. Curt Kirkwood is a brilliant, brilliant lyricist. It is said that they sometimes played/play live shows in natural enclaves out in the desert that make the acoustics come alive. To describe them would be to say something like maybe… psychedelic rock art poetry… something like that, but those are just my words. Enjoy the vid. Thanks for watching/reading. If you don’t know, inform yourself. If you know, share. If you like it, share it as well, and if you hate it…

well fuck you…cheers.

Love to all.

Future Islands Seasons on Dave Letterman

 

WOW…what a great performance. In case you missed it, some old friends of mine from college made a huge debut on the Late Show with Dave Letterman. These guys started out as Art Lord and the Self Portraits, then later evolved into what is now Future Islands. (<<<CLICK<<<) They have a healthy archive of music to check out too going back 10 years…in case you are new to the band. Be sure to look up and listen to their music. It’s brilliant. I’m lucky to have called these guy my friends at one time and it is truly a gift to the world that they now have global exposure. It’s all about love, music is the 4th dimensional goo that helps hold humanity together. Look into my archive for more on music, time, and the 4th dimension. In the meantime, enjoy the song/show above, share, connect. More to come as the seconds tick off faster and faster and faster. Wide eyes open. Love to all.

Before the Bridge

Just the latest in my music video collection. As I said before, these will only be songs that I personally like, and this one is unique in that I am friends with this band…. Future Islands   We all went to college at the same time, parties where they played in the corners of houses. There was a place called Peasant’s. Those were good times. 

 James Dean  happens to be a great actor, one of personal favorites other than Jack Nicholson. Too bad he died way too young, in such a horrible manner too… ouch. As did Natalie Wood , and you can click on everything in blue to read more. Rebel Without a Cause  is/was/ and always will be a great movie. If you haven’t seen it before, WATCH IT. Everyone should see it at least once. 

So, in the spirit of creativity, I combined the song with clips from the movie. It’s a song we can all relate to, and a movie we can all relate to, so let’s relate together. Thx for watching/reading. Share if you like. More to come. Wide eyes open. Love to all.
