Brilliant. A trippy 5.5 minutes of the cube nailing it. Brilliant, again.

This party is old and uninviting
Participants all in black and white
You enter in fullblown technicolor
Nothing is the same after tonight

If the world would fall apart
In a fiction worthy wind
I wouldn’t change a thing
Now that you’re here

Yeah, love is a verb here in my room
Here in my room, here in my room

You enter and close the door behind you
Now show me the world as seen from the stars
If only the lights would dim a little
I’m weary of eyes upon my scars

Pink tractor beam into your incision
Head spinning as free as dervishs’ whirl
I came here expecting next to nothing
So thank you for being that kind of girl
That kind of girl

What exactly is a “collie man”? Off of the “Live and Direct” cd, this song delivers to all listeners. Relaxing, simple, and re-list-en-able. A Californian band with a great mix of acoustic, reggae, blues, rock, hip-hop, and funk, check them out.

lyrics

And some man live his life
For profits alone
That very same man
He lives his life all alone
And the road to life
Yes it goes up and down
Doesn’t really matter
As long as the music goes on
Hey mister collie man
Why don’t you come round no more
Hey mister collie collie man
Don’t you hear me troubled call
Hey mister collie man
Look i didn’t come to disturb
You best not be come ’round here
Unless you’ve got me sensi herb
I never needed any
Reason for me to say
Through all them troubled times
Yes me love you any way
And the roughest path
You know the rocky rocky road
You know that
Life and love is a
Heavy heavy load
Hey mister collie man
Why don’t you come ’round no more
Hey mister collie collie man
Dont you hear me troubled call
Hey mister collie man
Look i didn’t come to disturb
You best not be come round here
Unless you’ve got me sensi herb
You best not be come round here
Unless you’ve got me sensi herb

One of the most relaxing songs ever. Could listen to it on repeat for hours. Short and sweet though. Last song off the “Road Apples” record. I’m kinda a Hip fan…enjoy

I often think about what it’d be like if we never lost Jim Morrison at such an early age. The guy would only be turning 66 this December. Man oh man, what a huge loss. In my minds eye, I can see him, still in his worn out leather pants, more fragile nowadays and Dylan-isque up on stage doing some creative solo rendition of “The End” with some cool bongo player in the back adding some percussion. Or maybe he’d be performing with Ray Manzarek, Rob Kreiger and the rest of the Doors collecting royalties off of so many countless platninum albums through the 70s, 80, 90s, and 2000s. His music surely would have evolved with times. Morrison was just way too talented to be making boring records. Experimentation with folk, electric, rock, techno, industrial, country, and hip hop would surely be something the then acid-rocker would have dabbled in. Our whole musical culture would have certainly been different. Imagine The Doors doing an MTV Unplugged show matching something reminescent of Nirvana. You were the Lizard King, and You could Do Anything…Why’d you have to hit the bottle so hard?

Arguably the top band ever to come from the North Country. Gord Downie’s haunting lyrics along with his echoing voice have made the Hip a staple in any true Canadians list of bands. To see the Hip play live anywhere 100 miles away from the Canadian border is a spectacle for any fan. When I saw them in Boston at the House of Blues this past spring, I was standing litterally 10 feet away from the legend known as Gord Downie as he whaled out a setlist of 25+ songs. The new album, We Are The Same, released in 2009, has many hidden gems that will just add to the continuing success of these indie-Canadian rockers. This happens to be my favorite of many off the album…and go figures, they opened with it that night and I was stuck in a cab trying to give the goddamn cabbie directions to the venue. Luckily, I also have the bootleg from the show. Enjoy the Studio version for now. I’m shutting it down for the night. I’m Beat. Keep on rocking and smoke em if you got em.

Who are youuuuuuuu
Who are yooooooooouuuuuu
Who are youuuuuuuuuuuuu

GENIUS!

 

Man, this is some freaky shit but this guy, Buckethead, is legit tapped. Check out this guitar lesson of the former guitarist of Guns N’ Roses. You can actually hear his talent on Chinese Democracy but I don’t think he ever fit into the band the way someone should be filling Slash’s shoes, Nonetheless the guy (or robot) is amazingly gifted. The monster thats on his hand is named Herbie. No joke.

You may have seen him a few years back on the show Intervention. Then struggling with his crystal meth addiction, Travis looked like death. A still young rockstar, with no money and his only goal to find out how to get his next high. Imagine being as successul as him and having to go back home to live with his mom. Was a sad episode to watch. This guy was 17 years old with hits such as “Shelf in the Room” and “Touch Peel and Stand” and he pissed it all away. Nonetheless, rumors in the industry say he’s planing a comeback album, but is it too late? This song here, “Die Born” Is off of the Days of the New III album and was by far my favorite track. You can tell from the video how much his drug abuse has taken a toll on his appearance. Nonetheless, an amazing song and in some way kind of inspiring. In college, I even tried to get this tune as background music to a highlight end-of-the-year film, but the geeks who were editing the video didn’t think it was upbeat enough. Fuckin idiots!
