sixth track from rock and roll band the Rolling Stones' 1978 album Some Girls
...yeah, this is a cool tune and cool footage of Mick, Keith and the boys doing it for the cameras and, yeah, on a day like today w/ a sky blue autumn sky on ThanksGiving 2008, well, I hope you dig it and feel it as much as I do ... This is one of my favorite Stones' albums since I was a young lad and still one of my favorite tunes ...
For 2 days in Decenber 1968 the Rolling Stones put on their "The Rolling Stones Rock & Roll Circus", with Jethro Tull, The Who, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithful, John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Eric Clapton, Mitch Mitchell, and a host of other Pioneers in Rock History.

come light the way
come on now mystify me
ignite my world
there's a bad moon risin'
over this corrupt day
inside your bed at night
i learn the words to say ...
some kind of change is due
inside studios and living rooms
grabbed by what came over me
oh, let it come (over you)
let it come (over you)
over you, over you, over you

Subject: Stars "Quitting Acting" on ShowBiz Tonight ...

Dear AJ and Brooke:
I really enjoyed the Stars "Quitting Acting" piece on ShowBiz Tonight ...
Big name stars like Oscar-nominated actor Joaquin Phoenix, Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Kevin Spacey quitting acting is certainly an attention grabber and ...
Wow, I dig it = "like a rolling stone, like a rolling stone - like the FBI, CIA, BBC, BB KING and Dorris Day - Mac Bugbee = Dig it, dig it, dig it..."
... as John Lennon sang inbetween tracks on Let It Be.
Maybe musicians are natural born rebels compared to actors or maybe it's that musicians, or these musicians I'm thinking of, have written their own material - unlike actors who are spoonfed words and then, well, act = Which, by no means, am I belittling acting as some actors are transformational figures and inspire transformation in others and inspire communion with something bigger than self.
But look at Jim Morrison who fled L.A. and the states for Paris and never came back; the Beatles walked away - and, in film, so did Eddie from Eddie and the Cruisers.
At any rate, I'm fascinated by this and I hope you keep us updated. (Psychoanalytically speaking = it's a wet dream - and I'd love to read any kind of poetry from any of these actors who quit and walk away or see or read any interview w/ them or listen to their music or see some of their artwork or just talk to them like the everyday people from stardust we are = real human be-ings).

KATHMANDU (AFP) – A young man believed by followers to be a reincarnation of Buddha has returned to Nepal's jungles to meditate alone, police said Saturday, as scholars cast doubt on his supporters' claims.
Known as the "Buddha Boy," Ram Bahadur Bomjam, 18, became famous in 2005 after supporters said he could meditate motionless for months without water, food or sleep.
"Bomjam went back into the jungle late Friday and all the devotees have left," police officer Gobinda Kushwaha told AFP from Neejgad, a town in Bara District, 60 kilometres (37.5 miles) south of Kathmandu.
The "Buddha Boy" reappeared earlier this month after supporters said in March 2007 that he was going to meditate for three years in an underground bunker, although he was spotted on two occasions.
For the last 10 days, he has been blessing thousands of devotees who came daily to the site in dense jungle close to Neejgad.
The president of the Nepal Buddhist Council said claims by his supporters that he was a reincarnation of Siddartha Gautama, the founder of Buddhism, were not credible.
