Gee, a big week for birthdays, first week July. And Canada Day too!

So, to & from Debbie Harry, Ringo Starr, and half my family too, and some friends & colleagues as well.
Lift those masks, blow out the candles, and wash your hands as you sing it twice! :))

You say it's your Birthday ! ?

The music, if it's unclear is Paul McCartney - doing a live concert Moscow a few years back. I've seen the concert vid, and a now-gone vid with the a cartoon and original Beatles. But this will do nicely. Happy birthday all celebrating - and July 4th too! Stay Safe!

Because.... it's such a nice idea ("sailin' on a big ship") ... and this is one of my favorite songs authentically from Hawai'i. This laid-back show is recent-ish, but in the 80's the airwaves were ruled by Brother Noland and the Island Bad Boys. This AM hit song - the original (below) was a very tight island-reggae studio recording.

This here is a laid back live performance years later by some Hawaiian music masters - including Brother Noland, center with blue guitar. As the lion sleeps tonight, nearby....

Are We Ready? ;) Dreaming... Waiting.... Imagining

"I've got two tickets to paradise"

But the ship cannot dock.
(Complete lyrics on YT description)

I've got two tickets to paradise,
Won't you pack your bags, we'll leave tonight,
I've got two tickets to paradise

A different time and type of "social distancing". From none other than... Joni Mitchell.

Back in 1957
We had to dance a foot apart

Come in From the Cold

Back in 1957
We had to dance a foot apart
And they hawk-eyed us from the sidelines
Holding their rulers without a heart
And so with just a touch of our fingers
I could make our circuitry explode
All we ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Come in from the cold
(we were so young)
Oh come in
Come in from the cold

We really thought we had a purpose
We were so anxious to achieve
We had hope
The world held promise
For a slave to liberty
Freely I slaved away for something better
And I was bought and sold
And all I ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Come in from the cold
(we were so sure)
Oh come in
Come in from the cold

I feel your leg under the table
Leaning into mine
I feel renewed
I feel disabled
By these bonfires in my spine
I don't know who the arsonist was
Which incendiary soul
But all I ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Come in from the cold
(you were so warm)
Oh come in
Come in from the cold

I am not some stone commission
Like a statue in a park
I am flesh and blood and vision
I am howling in the dark
Long blue shadows of the jackals
Are falling on a pay phone by the road
Oh all they ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Come in from the cold
(I was so low)
Oh come in
Come in from the cold

Is this just vulgar electricity
Is this the edifying fire
(it was so pure)
Does your smile's covert complicity
Debase as it admires
(just a flu with a temperature)
Are you just checking out your mojo
Or am I just fighting off growing old
(just a high fever)
All I ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Come in from the cold
(it was so pure)
Oh come in
Come in from the cold

I know we never will be perfect
Never entirely clear
(when the moon shines)
We get hurt and we just panic
And we strike out
Out of fear
(you were only being kind)
I fear the sentence of this solitude
200 years on hold
(for my loving crime)
Oh and all we ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Come in from the cold
(when the moon shines)
Oh come in
Come in from the cold

When I thought life had some meaning
Then I thought I had some choice
(I was running blind)
And I made some value judgments
In a self-important voice
(I was outa line)
But then absurdity came over me
And I longed to lose control
(into no mind)
Oh all I ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Come in from the cold
(you were so kind)
Please come in
(so kind)
Come in from the cold
Come in come in
Come in from the cold....

Happy / Happier Summer!

Yes, it's summer. * In the Northern Hemisphere, and east of California. And by the time you read this - sum-sum-summertime.

Lesson learned: Don't ask Siri when summe begins I know it's confusing to keep track of days lately, but in theory it's summer!

Summertime, Summertime

A fly-by song.... hm, "Yes Please!" Upward!
To the beautiful skies and a return to travel, love, health, peace...

And/or a sailing off of the root cause for so much chaos and disaster today: #trumpvirus
A blast of 60's spirit from days of love, togetherness and hope.

A little earlier today....

Brian Wilson - from home, just performed “the greatest pop song ever written” (Paul McCartney said), God Only Knows.
That's not onlinet, but these words are how he ended it on-air, and to me it is essence of Brian - and for all of us.

If this link works.... here are his words, his song, powerful medicine for the soul:

Love and Mercy

I totally agree. I am seeing this. I am feeling this. We all are.
The waiting is the hardest part

The Waiting

Every day you get one more yard
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part

In the spirit(s)....

Seeing many memes and mentions about wine and beer mostly.
There are many beer and whiskey songs in particular and some I can recall about wine.
But here's a favorite from the Kinks, who note that for some, any will do. (Lyrics below):


"Don't let this happen to you!" All around: #Staysafe - not necessarily sober (24/7), but safe - and mindful - in these times!


Here is a story about a sinner,
He used to be a winner who enjoyed a life of prominence and position,
But the pressures at the office and his socialite engagements,
And his selfish wife's fanatical ambition,
It turned him to the booze,
And he got mixed up with a floosie
And she led him to a life of indecision.
The floosie made him spend his dole
She left him lying on Skid Row
A drunken lag in some Salvation Army Mission.
It's such a shame.
Oh demon alcohol,
Sad memories I cannot recall,
Who thought I would say,
Damn it all and blow it all,
Oh demon alcohol,
Memories I cannot recall,
Who thought I would fall a slave to demon alcohol.
Barley wine pink gin,
He'll drink anything,
Port, Pernod or tequila,
Rum, scotch, vodka on the rocks,
As long as all his troubles disappeared.
But he messed up his life and he beat up his wife,
And the floosie's gone and found another sucker
She's gonna turn him on to drink
She's gonna lead him to the brink
And when his money's gone,
She'll leave him in the gutter,
It's such a shame.
Oh demon alcohol,
Sad memories I cannot recall,
Who thought I would fall,
A slave to demon alcohol.

I'd seen an earlier "4 stages" of quarantine, featuring the ever-popular Mona Lisa.
A few weeks later, now she's "on a roll" (or tray of rolls) , in some other familiar "stages", ranging from hair-play to strait jacket.

Poor Mona Lisa.... "why is everybody always picking on me?"
To think this renowned face of serenity has become poster child for a time of pandemic quarantines?

Hawaii Playlist – Great Music by Musicians from Hawaii

Viewfinder Travel Blog: Hawaii Playlist - Great Music by Musicians from Hawaii | Expedia Viewfinder (Expedia)

A lot of people suffering the beginnings of a new Great Depression, but first... we need to listen to the facts & scientists.
Please listen to the experts! Understand the facts. #staysafe Other than that... NRBQ says it must be....

Some Kind of Blues

Psychologists are seeing all sorts of .... "blues" ... Even among those who are safe. Despair.
A suggestion is stay on the side of togetherness, and facts, and reality, knowing that all of us share the problem and solution.
Many are isolated & or stressed. As one U.Penn psych explained that's called normal human stress and everybody on earth has it.

Sarah Jarosz - Johnny (Official Audio)

Johnny's on the back porch drinkin' red wine
He knows that it could be the very last time
He raises the glass up to his lips and wonders
How could a boy from a little bay town
Grow up to be a man, fly the whole world round
Then end back up on the same damn ground he started
You might not get what you pay for
You know that nothing's for sure
And an open heart looks a lot like the wilderness
Lately he's been thinking 'bout the meaning of time
The small amount we're given must be some sort of crime
Yet the little we have feels like too much most of the time
He takes another sip of that blood red wine
Just waiting on the stars that will never align
A little luck, a little love
A little light and you'll be doing just fine
But you might not get what you pay for
You know that nothing's for sure
And an open heart looks a lot like the wilderness
So open up your heart
Take it out, and put it back in
Signs are all around you
Let it begin
You might not get what you pay for
You know that nothing's for sure
And an open heart looks a lot like the wilderness
You might not get what you pay for
You know that nothing's for sure
And an open heart looks a lot like the wilderness

Speaking of OMG (Tull song of course), and rolling baby rolling (Doors, Rawhide, and TP)....

HOLY MOLY.... Remember Mungo Jerry? "In the summertime when the weather was fine"....

School Years for many, middle/high school or first jobs, summer dates, cars and radios?

HE'S BA-ACK!! Mungo -f'n Jerry, mutton-chop burns looking good as every, and he's got lots of people's blues.

50 Summers Later..... THE CORONA VIRUS BLUES -"Mungo Jerry (!)

And a blues song for this is a summer erased. With a 50 salute to his summer anthem.

We've all got the blues, corona
He woke up coughing, and he woke up sneezing,
And he woke up sweating, hallucinating... and corona,
Corona Virus Blues

Can't go to work, can't go to school,
Can't go nowhere, it's all over the news
Corona... Corona Virus Blues

The whole world's on lockdown with the Corona Virus Blues.

"Ah but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now..."

My Back Pages

Crimson flames tied through my ears, rollin' high and mighty traps
Pounced with fire on flaming roads using ideas as my maps
"We'll meet on edges, soon, " said I, proud 'neath heated brow
Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now
Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth, "rip down all hate, " I screamed
Lies that life is black and white spoke from my skull, I dreamed
Romantic facts of musketeers foundationed deep, somehow
Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now
Girls' faces formed the forward path from phony jealousy
To memorizing politics of ancient history
Flung down by corpse evangelists, unthought of, though somehow
Ah, but I was so much older then. I'm younger than that now
A self-ordained professor's tongue too serious to fool
Spouted out that liberty is just equality in school
"Equality, " I spoke the word as if a wedding vow
Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now
In a soldier's stance, I aimed my hand at the mongrel dogs who teach
Fearing not that I'd become my enemy in the instant that I preach
My existence led by confusion boats, mutiny from stern to bow
Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now
Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats too noble to neglect
Deceived me into thinking I had something to protect
Good and bad, I define these terms quite clear, no doubt, somehow
Ah, but I was so much older then I'm younger than that now
- Bob Dylan

I can't believe this hasn't become a big theme song - and I've not even seen it in parodies or theme-meme posts!
But it just occurred to me that this popped into my head for a reason. A worthy objective, and... So.... here goes.

This needs to be job #1 for most of the world now. Stay Safe!!
Stay home for now, listen to the scientists, and for news of testing, treatment, and vaccine... if Plan A is

New from Bob Dylan:

I Contain Multitudes

As a super Dylanology discussion is saying basically, it is a time for Dylan, for some focused and clear retrospection.

I Contain Multitudes
Today, and tomorrow, and yesterday, too
The flowers are dyin' like all things do
Follow me close, I’m going to Bally-na-Lee
I'll lose my mind if you don't come with me
I fuss with my hair, and I fight blood feuds
I contain multitudes

Got a tell-tale heart like Mr. Poe
Got skeletons in the walls of people you know
I’ll drink to the truth and the things we said
I'll drink to the man that shares your bed
I paint landscapes, and I paint nudes
I contain multitudes

A red Cadillac and a black mustache
Rings on my fingers that sparkle and flash
Tell me, what's next? What shall we do?
Half my soul, baby, belongs to you
I rollick and I frolic with all the young dudes
I contain multitudes

I'm just like Anne Frank, like Indiana Jones
And them British bad boys, The Rolling Stones
I go right to the edge, I go right to the end
I go right where all things lost are made good again
I sing the songs of experience like William Blake
I have no apologies to make
Everything's flowing all at the same time
I live on a boulevard of crime
I drive fast cars, and I eat fast foods
I contain multitudes

--Bob Dylan

From a Brooklyn Duo! A Billie Eilish cover, no less - and with cello! This was all a surprise to me. But beautiful.
Apparently requested by a million people. Who knew all this? What - am I, locked in a cage? ( Oh... yeah... maybe so.)
Enjoy the weekend & stay safe & sane, kind & mindful.
