I have no recourse apparently even if I no idea what I have done to breach the copyright law or my alleged violation of said laws. I have supported live music all my life in many shapes and form. I have a vast record collection still in use, I see 20 to 25 live acts a year and attend at least 3 or 4 major music festivals. I have contributed quite healthily to several kickstart and bandcamp start up albums too. If I could pay Tumblr dough for music mistakenly posted that needs it's copyright royalty paid I would do so...but it seems there is no recourse I am to be given the boot now. I want to thank you all for so very much for words, thoughts prayers and blessings....now if the boot doesn't come...
Looks like this is it…….this came first and I still have no idea which tune it is in reference too. I have been careful and followed copyright guides as I can find them with my tune postings. but…..they have bots to comb the files and I don’t I guess….

We talked about a million things…seemingly all at ones. those late night calls from Toronto to the west coast of Australia….how we loved sad songs on good days that were filled with sunny blue and the counterpoint of that sadness to remind…then the calls got fewer and fewer…read your last letter saying you were through with the marriage…then a postcard from Nepal and strange Christmas card two months after Christmas from Jaipur…..now I clutch in my hand a note from your 89 year old mother that you won’t be meeting me for that threatened glass of wine on the 40 anniversary of our break up. So lovers stay in your heart and blood forever….even after that love you burned is gone! For this and all of that I play what you called your favourite saddest song!
I heard this on late yesterday after sitting in the little cafe that adjoins Kings College Hosp. One of the medicos who looks after me was playing it on the little portable speaker for her iPhone…it was something like listening to a band from the 80;s underwater and on some kind of downer drug….but I liked it! I’m not sure how long this collection of two London lads will last out there but I like this whole album they’ve put out in the music universe! So it’s the Friday Fresh Outta the Box selection from the Flimwell Papers’ Music Corner. Peace, love and pass the hooka y’all!
Now this song is one that the little gal from that picture and I used to sing while driving down the backroads to my folks place in rural Ontario…..the smell of new cut hay in the fields, twilight glimmer over the land and a warm humming of summer at sunset kissing one’s ears as we sang and drove along……
'Cause I wanted to shot my nerve endings today…'cause I found this bit of overwrought Gothic sentiment just the ticket for my battle with the little cancer cells that are eating my nerve endings….it's a weird song to be singing along to in the big white tube that is MRI scan thing…..but hey…I came out the other end laughing….Gunshot yeah…..The Wednesday Got Weird selection from the Flimwell Papers' Music Corner. And you know what HST said about the weird….when the going gets tough the weird turn pro….
You can see it…there stretching off into the infinite horizon! The spirit road is there and I can see it well these days for when you reach this vantage point it’s often that you really can see how to pass by the wreckage of ones life and seek that path…I have the love, I have the eyes and some of the wisdom…..now the road to take my soul to peace….
"There’s a long highway in your mind The spirit road that you must find To get you home to peace again Where you belong my love lost friend….”
Chris has a great vocal style and the guitar here rings clear and fine…band cooks along too! Just a fine song that reminds me of being on the riverside in the Deep South with a party on both the front and back veranda when just that little bit of twilight hangin’ on….and you should be goin’ hone with the one that brought you! It’s the Monday Got the Blues selection from the Flimwell Papers Music Corner. For all the Good Ol’Bears out there…Redjeep…you might like this one!
Strange fact of my life, number 7, Dad never drove a car after he was about 17 years of age. I had my two aunts and my Uncle Valentine teach me….but this song just bops me back to dancing out at the “Pav” on a Saturday night and the long rides along the lakeshore road home with good gal pal…..and thanks to all who send those mighty fine words, Honey-Rider, Puffy Pie and so many others!
I was deep into a casual read of my Sunday morning newspaper only slightly aware of surrounding conversations. I suffer from acutely good hearing and I have to work at not hearing things sometimes....all of sudden it was a tone, an insisting or pleading note that hit. "Go on ask someone, I don't think you can, never, the voice continued, " not in a place like this to vanilla no one baited for it here."
I peered up over my specs as if on cue....and now facing me having turned right around in the rickety stools that pass for seating in my little java fix haunt was a very tousled haired young face almost blushing he stumbled over a the first word words of this put-up-to question, " DoyoumindifIask......"
"No not at all," with my best old professorial tones in gear I answered.
."...ok right thanks oh my name is Alex and this Dee," he waved a palm outstretched gesture over his right shoulder..."we wondering if you can ask just anyone what the...or their most weird sex ever was...er...like what is the weirdest time you ever had related to sex...."
"Oh, I see....", the long musing pause by myself.....
I think because I’ve been suffering some side-effects to the mojo meds, one being a return of tinnitus though more virulently plaguing this time around, I have restored to listening to only a few of my favourites on very long and on vinyl. My beloved headphones are removed from bedside and deskside….but I was boppin’; around to this one today and just love a song that makes you forget everything but tappin’ your toes. So here goes it as The Saturday Got Soul selection from the Flimwell Papers’ Music Corner! Peace, love and spag bol, y’all!
More noted for some rather spectral incursions into the land of Rock Legend myth and being a good live album of a special tour….the Joni Mitchell revelations about Zombie like folk stumbling around backstage in London with dripping blood from nasal orifices ruptured by bad coke is a not to make even this lover of CSN&Y turn off the track…but I have to agree with my amigo Alex Petrides that this album makes the point they were just about the greatest sound around pre-Punk giants of the stage and the harmony! More in another space…enjoy this one as it felt like a brand new one of Neil and the gang tonight to my ears. Peace, love and pass the music, y’all! Yes I bought the box set!
Part poetry, more than song….and if fits with how I think about bridges and building them. Reaching out and over all the troubles that life can hurl at one, put in one’s way, or just the sheer poetry of overcoming with the assist of a bridge…from another soul, a friend, a love one….a stranger! I fight with a smile and a bridge from my heart to all those who love bridges. It seems now so appropriate and not chance that my dear mother and father gave me a ticket and a bus trip to the city for my 15th birthday to see The Man in Black live. It has a lot to do know with who I am and what I feel about life. Blessings be yours this week coming, fully!
