The Jayhawks peform "Tiny Arrows" on Soundcheck in The Greene Space



Wandered through the desert
Looking for my way
Under rocks and houses
Snakes burn in the day
Coyote is howling
In the mountains far away

Dusty winters
Leave what's left behind
There are no reasons
To find what I call mine
Fences mean nothing
The sunrise disappears

Sit and watch the river flow
Try and touch the sky

And I don't mind
The sound of the song bird trying
Follow what you can find
Childhood washed away
Where did it go?
Where, where did it go?

The wind is whistling
Coats are buttoned high
Funny people
With nowhere left to hide
The canyon caravan
Rolls along

Sit and watch the river flow
Try and touch the sky

And I don't mind
The sound of the song bird trying
Follow what you can find
Childhood washed away
Where did it go?
Where, where did it go?

Didn't know those tiny arrows
Made of metal, pierced the heart
Didn't know those tiny arrows
Made of metal, pierced the heart
I didn't know those tiny arrows
Made of metal, pierced the heart

Sit and watch the river flow
Try and touch the sky

And I don't mind
The sound of the song bird trying
Follow what you can find
Childhood washed away
Where did it go?
Where, where did it go?

Where, where did it go?

Surfer rides 90 foot wave (World Record)



On his website, Garrett McNamara is a self-described "extreme surfer." Interestingly enough, this may be the understatement of the century. The American professional surfer broke the world record for "Largest Wave Surfed" by conquering a 90 foot behemoth. "Extreme" doesn't quite do this feat justice.

Cool.

so righteous & awesome = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3OUBKEQryM

To rise and fall
without the hands of gravity
to see it all
my hand to cover up my eyes
to move inside
suspended by my sense of self
along the line
the river flows and so do I

and Charles Atlas stands upon the beach
upon his head and says
I will not fall
I will not fall
I will not fall

to live the groove
is everything that I need
to see you move
when grace is just a simple wisdom
to feel
to live
to speak the truth at every junction
to be with you
and with myself and my suspicion

and Charles Atlas stands upon the beach
upon his head and says
I will not fall
I will not fall
I will not fall

and Charles Atlas stands upon the beach
upon his head and says
I will not fall
I will not fall
I will not fall

I, I, I, I, I will not fall

Interview with Jim Morrison's father and sister



"Whoever controls the media controls the mind" --- Jim Morrison

The Rolling Stones Before They Make Me Run San Diego 1994



This is about the Rock and Roll lifestyle that got Keith Richards in trouble. The song was recorded while he was out on bail after getting caught with heroin and arrested for drug trafficking in Toronto in 1977. He was found guilty of the lesser charge of heroin possession, and sentenced to probation.Richards sang lead and did the majority of the work on this song. With Keith's drug charges pending, Mick Jagger took a lot of control on the album, but this song was pretty much all Keith.The original title was "Rotten Roll."Richard's vocals were double-tracked to make them stand out.The first bit of the song is about the drug death of Richard's friend Gram Parsons.An engineer named Dave Jordan helped mix this song. He went on to work with groups like The Specials and The Pogues.
