And now, a musical intermission

Roll away the dew…

From your eyes.

From your mind.

And wake up to find out!

—-

The clean break is what most is most scary and frightening for people. Some might even go so far as to say it is traumatic. Most Psychotherapy is based upon the premise the we can be lead incrementally to change. But in actuality, the change itself– when the dew falls away, is rolled away from the viewing, is a clean break.

Most people will fight to the bitter end to avoid this clean break.

What is the break towards which we face ?

The Luckiest.

It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

I don’t get many things right the first time,
That I am, I am, I am, the luckiest
What if I had been born fifty years before you
And I know
That I am, I am, I am, the luckiest
I love you more then have
Next door there’s an old man who lived to his nineties and one day
I’m sorry I know that’s a strange way to tell you that I know we belong,
That I know
That I am, I am, I am, the luckiest

Discussions about popular music? How absurd.

this is totally amazing to me.

I’ve known for a long time that Frank Zappa was a very smart guy; an incredible musician but I also knew he was really smart.

I was never really into his music very much even though, but I could appreciate it.

but just page through this interview on the TV show that he had in 1972. and then reflect on our times; if there’s any sort of discussion about any sort of music now days it is entirely superficial and usually plagued with sound bytes about some sort of political statement, all of which probably last about 10 seconds. Basically, Zappa predicted that just by talking about situation with music back then.

and, yes, it’s a bunch of white people on the show speaking intellectually.

do you think any of our music stars nowadays would open themselves up to such free discussion about whatever a group of people want to pose for them?

oh, and check out if anything 24 minutes into it. so perfect and insightful.

do you think any of our popular music stars can even formulate an opinion with such substance, let alone elaborate upon that opinion for like 40 minutes.

like, “gag me with a spoon!”
