Hawaiian War Chant

Hawaiian War Chant
(Ta-Hu-Wa-Hu-Wai)
51a-lakGBqL._SX300_
There’s a sunny little, funny little melody
That was started by a native down in Waikiki
He would gather a crowd down beside the sea
And together they’d play his gay Hawaiian Chant
Soon the other little natives started singin’ it
And the hula hula maidens starting swingin’ it
Like a tropical storm that’s the way it hit
Funny little gay Hawaiian chant
Hawaiian War
Au we ta huala
Au we ta huala
Tho it started on an island down Hawaii way
It’s as popular in Tennessee or Ioway
If you wander into any cabaret
You will hear this gay Hawaiian chant

TIME! A YEAR IN THE LIFE…

 

TIME! A YEAR IN THE LIFE… and Death.

NOTE: Here’s another draft from the past. We started this Blog before we received the news that two of our old friends died suddenly and unexpectedly over the space of two weeks, giving this Blog a whole new perspective. We left this one alone for a short time, tributes to Ann and Mario (of blessed memory) are in other Blog posts, and we returned and changed this around to make it something new, and then it sat again until today, when we finally published it. Take a moment in time and think about your life.

“Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time…..”

Yesterday was the two year anniversary of the death of another good friend, and we also received word that another old friend from our past took his own life rather than face an uncertain surgery. He had no next of kin.

“TIME”– Pink Floyd (from Dark Side of The Moon)
DAVID JON GILMOUR, NICHOLAS BERKELEY MASON,
GEORGE ROGER WATERS, RICHARD WILLIAM WRIGHT

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it’s sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way but you’re older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over
Thought I’d something more to say

Home/Home again/I like to be here/When I can
When I come home/Cold and tired
It’s good to warm my bones/Beside the fire
Far away/Across the field
Tolling on the iron bell/Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spell

All that you touch And all that you see
All that you taste All you feel
And all that you love And all that you hate
All you distrust All you save
And all that you give And all that you deal
And all that you buy, beg, borrow or steal
And all you create And all you destroy
And all that you do And all that you say
And all that you eat And everyone you meet
And all that you slight And everyone you fight
And all that is now And all that is gone
And all that’s to come
and everything under the sun is in tune
but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.
Pink Floyd “Eclipse” from “Dark Side of the Moon”

Quadrophenia! LIVE at the Greek Theatre in Griffith Park on Saturday Night!

Pete Townshend’s “Classic Quadrophenia!”

LIVE at the Greek Theatre in Griffith Park on Saturday Night!

21557675_1960331927326697_6529528150602405574_n

Saturday night’s alright for “Quadrophenia”!

NOTE: Still working on the “Road Trip” and “Burning Man” Blogs, but we decided to spend the money and see a LIVE show at the Greek Theatre on Saturday night.

Parking SUCKS at the Greek Theatre (and it always has). We tried to park at the “Offsite Parking Lot” for $10 and wanted to take the shuttle, but were greeted with “Unfortunately……”

It was explained by a lackey in orange vest that unless you paid online, they weren’t letting people pay cash and park because they didn’t have enough parking.
Because Griffith Park is TOO F*CKING SMALL AND DOESN’T HAVE ENOUGH SPACE TO PARK EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO PARK OFFSITE!
JUST ANOTHER City of Los Angeles FAIL.
(just count on the City to FAIL everytime)

So we drove around and then up the hill to the Greek Theatre, with traffic on Los Feliz and Vermont, and paid $25 to park on the grass on a hillside above the theatre. At least they had rows of cars instead of just “stack parking” and packing them in like the old days.

21687863_1963199950373228_2200522469238820206_n

It cost us an extra $15. We didn’t have to offsite park or take the shuttle and then we walked over to WillCall and picked up our $100 ticket ($79.50 + $18.80 fees). We bought a $5 bottled water so the price tag for the evening was ~$130 + gas (and another $10 for a cocktail + tip later on the way home).

The Greek Theatre in Griffith Park is a very nice venue once you get past the parking.

 

Here’s a handy seating chart and aerial view of the Greek Theatre (not my pics):

 

Our $100 ticket was for Sec B, Row U, Seat 13 – an okay seat on the $$$ price scale. For another $25 we could have been more center, and for a couple hundred dollars more we could have been in Sec A or front of Terrace (Loge seats), but WHY?

21617884_1963026027057287_2751455438734631724_n

Quadrophenia!

With Pete Townshend, Alfie Boe, Billy Idol, an orchestra and a choir!

21463305_1960323627327527_2379044140966233658_n

21371276_1960392873987269_1084271538943205810_n

It wasn’t a rock concert. We knew that going in. It was a classical performance piece with full orchestra and a large choir. They performed the entire double album’s music beautifully and it rocked, but it wasn’t a rock concert and some people didn’t get it.

We really enjoyed the music, it’s one of our favorite WHO albums, and it was great to see it performed live with the orchestra and choir. The sound was really good at the Greek, and with the exception of the audience, it was a very good show.

EXIT (Stage Left): So, we waited for the Greek to empty out and there still was a line to get out of the GATED AREA. It is a VERY DANGEROUS EXIT because if there were an emergency, people would get crushed trying to escape. They didn’t have the large gates open, so everyone had to funnel into and out through the entrance point.

Drive through Griffith Park at night!

We walked back to our car and waited for the parking lot to empty, and the line at the restrooms to clear, then instead of driving down the hill back to Los Feliz, we drove through the park and then down to Western Avenue. There are great views of the city and Downtown Los Angeles from the road through the park, but the only pictures we took were in the tunnel because of the traffic and people walking to their cars.

21463252_1960308257329064_6959534644950835692_n

Tunnel Vision! Drive Through Griffith Park!

Saturday Night! We drove through Ferndell to Los Feliz and down Western to Hollywood Blvd. We got on the 101 freeway and headed back to the valley, and decided to stop for a post-show drink at the Chimneysweep Lounge in Sherman Oaks on the way home. It used to be a real “hole-in-the-wall” dive bar, but then it was taken over by hipsters…

We got a seat at the bar and enjoyed a Stoli rocks with a lime (our first and only drink of the evening). We people watched for a bit but they weren’t interesting people, decided we didn’t want to hang, so we headed home and ate some food before going to bed. It was a pretty fun night and we certainly enjoyed the music.

Working Man Blues – Merle Haggard

It’s a big job just gettin’ by with nine kids and a wife
I been a workin’ man dang near all my life
I’ll be working long as my two hands are fit to use
I’ll drink my beer in a tavern,
Sing a little bit of these working man blues

I keep my nose on the grindstone, I work hard every day
Might get a little tired on the weekend, after I draw my pay
But I’ll go back workin, come Monday morning I’m right back with the crew
I’ll drink a little beer that evening,
Sing a little bit of these working man blues

Hey hey, the working man, the working man like me
I ain’t never been on welfare, that’s one place I won’t be
Cause I’ll be working long as my two hands are fit to use
I drink a little beer that evening
Sing a little bit of these working man blues

Sometimes I think about leaving, do a little bummin around
I wanna throw my bills out the window catch a train to another town
But I go back working I gotta buy my kids a brand new pair of shoes
Yeah drink a little beer that evening,
Cry a little bit of these working man blues

Hey hey, the working man, the working man like me
I ain’t never been on welfare, that’s one place I won’t be
Cause I’ll be working long as my two hands are fit to use
I drink a little beer that evening
Sing a little bit of these working man blues
Yeah drink a little beer that evening,
Cry a little bit of these working man blues

LOVECATS

LOVECATS
by The Cure

thinking of you (“We missed you hissed the love cats”)

941760_654207744605795_1961126983_n

LOVECATS

We move like cagey tigers
We couldn’t get closer than this
The way we walk
The way we talk
The way we stalk
The way we kiss
We slip through the streets
While everyone sleeps
Getting bigger and sleeker
And wider and brighter
We bite and scratch and scream all night
Let’s go and throw
All the songs we know

Into the sea
You and me
All these years and no one heard
I’ll show you in spring
It’s a treacherous thing
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats

We’re so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully
Wonderfully pretty!
Oh you know that I’d do anything for you
We should have each other to tea huh?
We should have each other with cream
Then curl up by the fire
And sleep for awhile
It’s the grooviest thing
It’s the perfect dream

Into the sea
You and me
All these years and no one heard
I’ll show you in spring
It’s a treacherous thing
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats

We’re so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully
Wonderfully pretty!
You know that I’d do anything for you
We should have each other to dinner
We should have each other with cream
Then curl up in the fire
Get up for awhile
It’s the grooviest thing
It’s the perfect dream

Hand in hand
Is the only way to land
And always the right way round
Not broken in pieces
Like hated little meeces
How could we miss
Someone as dumb as this?

I love you, let’s go
Oh, solid gone
How could we miss 
Someone as dumb as this?

Music Makin’ Mama from Memphis!

Hank Snow – Music Makin’ Mama from Memphis!

The Canadian country music star who brought you great hits like “I’ve Been Everywhere!”, “The City of New Orleans” and the “Rhumba Boogie”!
(see our previous Blog post I’ve Been Everywhere, Man!)

Hank_Snow_1970

Hank Snow, the Singing Ranger

Hank Snow on the Perry Como Show in 1952:

Music Makin’ Mama from Memphis!
by Hank Snow

Listen to a story about a gal I know
She’s my music makin’ mama, I’m her hillbilly beau
She’s sweeter than the music when she tickles the strings
Sweeter than the flowers down in New Orleans
She’s my Music Makin’ Mama from Memphis, Tennessee.

She’ll play a little rhythm, do the boogie up right
A Tennessee polka, maybe blues in the night
Ever’body travels from near and far
To hear her when she picks it on that old guitar
My Music Makin’ Mama from Memphis, Tennessee.

You can hear her in the ev’nin’, when the sun sinks low
A-singin’ and a-pickin on that old banjo
You wanta jive when the words roll out of her mouth
Ever’body’s callin’ her the Queen of the South
She’s my fiddle playin’ mama from Memphis, Tennessee.

You gotta start dancin’ when she gets in the groove
Picks a big bass fiddle or yodels the blues
Plays a downbeat, offbeat, any old beat
A breakdown, a hoedown and does it up neat
She’s my bass pickin’ baby from Memphis, Tennessee.

You can tell when my baby is a-comin’ to town
All the jive-jumpin’ jitterbugs, they gather around
They keep a-yellin’ to my sweetie, now, honey, let’s go
My baby starts pickin’ and a pickin’ down low
My Music Makin’ Mama from Memphis, Tennessee.

She’ll play a little rhythm, do the boogie up right
A Tennessee polka, maybe blues in the night
Ever’body travels from near and far
To hear her when she picks it on that old guitar
My Music Makin’ Mama from Memphis, Tennessee.

LOVE YOUR MOTHER EARTH!

Earth (AKA “the World” or “the Globe”) is the third planet from the Sun and is the birthplace of humanity and the cradle of human civilization.

earth-day-2017-5650394117046272-s‘s Earth Day Doodle!

Earth is approximately 4.6 billion years old. The oldest known rocks are about 4 billion years old (rocks older than 3 billion years are rare) and the oldest fossils of living organisms are less than 3.9 billion years old. With a radius of 3,959 miles, Earth is the biggest of the known terrestrial planets, and the fifth largest in our solar system.

Planet Earth, Sol System, Milky Way Galaxy, Universe

71 Percent of the Earth’s surface is covered with water. Earth’s atmosphere is 77% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, with traces of argon, carbon dioxide and water (H20). Earth’s oceans have an average depth of about 2.5 miles and contains 97 percent of the planet’s water. Earth has a central (inner and outer) core, a rocky mantle and a solid crust.

The name “Earth” is at least 1,000 years old and it is the only planet whose name doesn’t come from from Greek or Roman mythology. The name is from Old English and Germanic origins and means “ground”.

Earth orbits the sun and completes one daily rotation every 23.9 hours. It takes 365.25 days to complete a one year trip around the sun.  The Earth’s axis is tilted 23.4 degrees to the plane of the planet’s orbit around the sun and this causes the cycle of seasons.

Earth is the only known planet that has a single moon. The moon is (an average distance of) 238,855 miles away from Earth.

We Can Run
by John Barlow & Brent Mydland

We don’t own this place though we act as if we did
It belongs to the children of our children’s kids
The actual owners haven’t even been born yet

But we never tend the garden and we rarely pay the rent
Most of it is broken and the rest of it is bent
Put it all on plastic and I wonder where we’ll be when the bills hit

We can run but we can’t hide from it
Of all possible worlds we only got one, we gotta ride on it
Whatever we’ve done we’ll never get far from what we leave behind
Baby we can run, run, run but we can’t hide

Well I’m dumping my trash in your back yard
Making certain you don’t notice really isn’t so hard
You’re so busy with your guns and all of your excuses to use them

Well it’s oil for the rich and babies for the poor
We’ve got everyone believing that more is more
If a reckoning comes maybe we’ll know what to do then

We can run but we can’t hide from it
Of all possible worlds we only got one, we gotta ride on it
Whatever we’ve done we’ll never get far from what we leave behind
Baby we can run, run, run but we can’t hide

All these complications seem to leave no choice
I heard the tongues of billions speak with just one voice
Saying just leave all the rest to me, I need it worse than you, you see
Then I heard the sound of one child crying

Today I went out walking in the amber wind
There’s a hole in the sky where the light pours in
I remember the days when I wasn’t afraid of the sunshine

But now it beats down on the ashphalt land
Like a hammering blow from God’s left hand
What little still grows
Cringes in the shade till the night-time

We can run but we can’t hide from it
Of all possible worlds we only got one, we gotta ride on it
Whatever we’ve done we’ll never get far from what we leave behind
Baby we can run, run, run but we can’t hide (….no, we can’t hide.)

Ghost Riders in the Sky! A Cowboy Legend with Music & Lyrics!

Ghost Riders in the Sky (A Cowboy Legend)

cowboy-3

Ghost Riders in the Sky!

The song tells a folk tale of a cowboy who has a vision of red-eyed, steel-hooved cattle thundering across the sky, being chased by the spirits of damned cowboys. One of the riders warns him that if he doesn’t change his ways, he’ll be doomed to join them.

The song presents an image of cowboy hell with doomed riders destined to chase the Devil’s cattle for all eternity. Known by the different titles “Riders in the Sky“, “Ghost Riders“, “Ghost Riders in the Sky” and “A Cowboy Legend“, the song has become a Country & Western Classic!

(Ghost) Riders in the Sky: A Cowboy Legend” was written by Stan Jones in 1948.
Stan Jones said he heard the story when he was 12 years old from an old cowboy.
More than 50 performers have recorded their own cover versions of the song.

Burl Ives recorded the original version of the song in February, 1949:

Vaughn Monroe recorded the song in March, 1949 and it went to Number One on the Billboard charts. Here’s a live performance from 1965:

Ghost Riders in the Sky!

(Ghost) Riders in the Sky: A Cowboy Legend

An old cowboy went ridin’ out one dark and windy day
upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way
when all at once a mighty herd of red-eyed cows he saw
plowin’ through the ragged skies and up a cloudy draw

Their brands were still on fire and their hooves were made of steel
their horns were black and shiny and their hot breath he could feel
a bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky
for he saw the riders comin’ hard and he heard their mournful cries

chorus:
yippie i ohhh ohh ohh, yippie i aye ye ye
ghost riders in the sky

Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred
their shirts all soaked with sweat
he’s ridin’ hard to catch that herd
but he ain’t caught em yet
’cause they got to ride forever in that range up in the sky
on horses snortin’ fire as they ride on, hear their cries

As the riders loped on by him he heard one call his name
if you want to save your soul from hell a-ridin’ on our range
then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride
tryin’ to catch the devil’s herd across these endless skies

yippie i ohhh oh oh, yippie i aye ye ye
ghost riders in the sky, ghost riders in the sky, ghost riders in the sky…….

Ghost Rider in the Sky!

The Ventures made a surf rock cover of the song in 1961 and Dick Dale recorded a rockin’ version for his second album “King of the Surf Guitar” which was released in 1963.

The song inspired the 1949 Gene Autry film “Riders in the Sky”
and the film’s tag lines:
“Gene and Champion Ride To Glory!…
as the range echoes to the stirring strains of the great cowboy ballad!”

and
“A GREAT COWBOY BALLAD launches Gene on his most stirring adventure!”

Of course Gene Autry sings “Ghost Riders in the Sky”. A chance meeting with Stan Jones led Autry to buy the rights to the song, and he gave Jones a part in the film. Jones appears as a cowboy riding and singing along with Autry in the opening and closing scenes of the film. The song also inspired the 1953 film “Goldtown Ghost Riders” starring Gene Autry.

The song also inspired the horror-Western comic-book character the Ghost Rider. After Magazine Enterprises’ trademark ran out, Marvel Comics debuted its own version of the character in “Ghost Rider” #1 in February, 1967. The character was later renamed the Phantom Rider when Marvel debuted the demonic motorcyclist Ghost Rider.

The Doors “Riders on the Storm”

The Doors – Hollywood Walk of Fame

According to The Doors’ Robby Krieger, it inspired the classic song “Riders on the Storm”

It evolved out of a jam session when the band was messing around with “Ghost Riders In the Sky” and it was Jim Morrison’s idea to alter the title to “Riders On The Storm.” It was also the last song Jim recorded. He went to France and died a few weeks later. If you listen closely, you can hear Jim whispering the lyrics over his singing. Ray Manzarek told Uncut magazine in September 2011: “There’s a whisper voice on ‘Riders on the Storm,’ if you listen closely, a whispered overdub that Jim adds beneath his vocal. That’s the last thing he ever did. An ephemeral, whispered overdub.” The single was released in June 1971, shortly before Morrison’s death.

Doors drummer John Densmore wrote an auto-biographical book called
Riders On The Storm” about his life with Jim Morrison and The Doors.
