Julia Holter! One of the real great concerts last year.
... and Barbara Lewis anyway.
Good morning Jeffrey!

Mornin', RevRab. Wet and cold all over the neighbourhood this a.m..www.intellicast.com...

- not impossible (...cough - whisper...) - the white stuff could be sighted here today they say ; I'm sure it's below freezing in the air above
...yerknow Sem - lookin' @ Googlemaps or such, I thot I were about 1/2-way & a touch to the Left twixt yerseslf & FMU-land - but looking @ a flat map in my hands, it looks that'd put you in Maine & you're surely further...perhaps I will figure this out...
Avatar Sat. 11/1/14 6:58am Sem Chumbo:

Eastport, ME is handy enough to Digby Neck, that southwest peninsula of basalt which looks like it wants to separate from Nova Scotia...

Feliz Día de los Muertos a todos. Not sorry to say gbye to Rocktober (i live near Salem, MA)

Hard to believe, but i'm sitting on my balcony. Well, very unusual autumn temperatures here.
Avatar Sat. 11/1/14 7:04am Sem Chumbo:

@Guido: how I envy that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/1/14 7:08am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...okay - I'm 275.9 mi to FMU-land as the car flies reportedly

...that Charalambides - wow; anybody thinks such 'minimal' delicate interaction easy I invite them to try; reminds me a tiny bit of 'It Was a Pleasure Then' by essentially the Velvets on Nico solo...
Avatar Sat. 11/1/14 7:15am Sem Chumbo:

@RevRab: for a car which does not fly, the route from here to Monty Hawww.google.ca...!3m1!4b1!4m13!4m12!1m5!1m1!1s0x4ca9cc47c465f2a3:0xce24ab5253fab107!2m2!1d-66.3547365!2d44.2617409!1m5!1m1!1s0x89c250ca6a196a99:0x7c9547c5a2e32919!2m2!1d-74.0553167!2d40.7209776ll, FYI:

Mornin'. Darkness lifting in NYC.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/1/14 7:17am doca:

Hi, all. Happy All Saints' Day for all! (For some reason I love the liturgical calendar). It's a lazy overcast Saturday morning here and I've already decided I'm not going to do anything useful today. Yay!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/1/14 7:17am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...& I'm 530.5 mi to Digby Neck as the car & presumably ferry fly: granted, a fairly circuitous route ! ; say rather - ? - I'm closer to FMU's Longitude & your Latitude (neither quite) - being the landlocked outpost in the hills of a triangle we make...lemme check your link here...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/1/14 7:18am doca:

I'm on the antipodae
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/1/14 7:21am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@doca: Being into Astrology & such - I see All Saints as a later appropriation of earlier observances (Samhain, Dia de los Muertos, &tc.) - so my argument would be we respond to the Ancient & the Natural Cycles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/1/14 7:22am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...of course - closer to the Equator (?) - Seasons mean less ! (?) ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/1/14 7:23am doca:

@RRN63: Yeah all those Catholic feasts are appropriations of earlier pagan stuff (or even things later, like some feasts on Latin America which are translations of things the Incas and Mayas did). But what I like is that the days have names and they are suppposedly different from each other, each having its own rituals and observances. It's a different concept of time from our own in which each day is just continuing the previous day and an anticipation of the next one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/1/14 7:27am TDK60:

Should be a heart next to my name. But, the post office has screwed up lots of my letters lately. They disappear! Bad service.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/1/14 7:28am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- but of course each Culture had it's own Calendar, & thus it's own Astrology - it's own way of relating Society to the Heavens. Some of the ones in Mexico & South America were easily among the most remarkable & well-developed of the Ancient World - & already had all that in spades (entire Cities - & more - arranged in alignment to the Sky) - all Traditions largely decimated by the Conquistadors, of course.

...btw: fantastic pickers DJ JD !
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/1/14 7:36am doca:

How can a guitar produce so much SOUND?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/1/14 7:39am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...12 strings, 10 fingers, 20+ frets - & overtones beyond number...The Guitar is quite a strange little device !
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/1/14 7:40am Ken From Hyde Park:

Good morning, Halloween survivors!
Avatar Sat. 11/1/14 7:43am Sem Chumbo:

@KfHP:Halloween here is just the same since the trick and treaters stopped burning wooden covered bridges and tipping over outhouses ;-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/1/14 7:44am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

On Dia de los Muertos - we should perhaps remember, commune w/, & honor those who have passed. Every culture in the World believed this time here in ♏Scorpio was when the veil between worlds was thinnest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/1/14 7:45am TDK60:

I love 12-string guitars. I've played them, a bit difficult with more to deal with.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/1/14 7:51am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- 12s = twice as much tuning ! - & 2xs the finger pressure...John McLaughlin sure machine-gunned notes out of 'em...sheesh.
- Fantastic set here !

♏Scorpio more or less represents what's unexpressed in the subconscious - so various things come out - be it aggro / Social discontent, eros (the Halloween as Sexy debate) or spirituality...it's all in there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/1/14 7:53am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...the one time I fiddled w/ a sitar - my cheap acoustic 6-string afterwords sure seemed like a dumb brick ! ...
Avatar Sat. 11/1/14 7:54am Sem Chumbo:

@ RevRab, of course one of the truly great explorations of the Day of the Dead, and the issues you cite above, and quite a few more, are all contained in the Lowry novel, Under the Volcano. Layer upon layer upon layer of reference, allusion,mythology...still reading it again and again after all these years.
Avatar Sat. 11/1/14 7:55am JohnEBGood:

I love songs like this. It sounds like me grooving on a 6 string. Or is it Pete Townshend. "Is it me for a moment?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/1/14 7:58am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- argh ! Too much to read !! : )
- I'm a Wh♂ nut ; Pete touches something in the Collective - doesn't he ?
- Nice to have the day bookended w/ Xylouris White ! ...
  Sat. 11/1/14 8:15am Jack:

Morning, folks! Got up late. In re: Under the Volcano. Wiki sez: The novel was the inspiration for the 1971 song "The Consul At Sunset" by Jack Bruce and Pete Brown.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/1/14 8:17am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I'm gonna ☆ this episode ! : it's just delivered too well already w/ pickers & songsters & moods !
...then I'm gonna get ready fer Werk & leave some damn oxygen on the Comments here for others ! : )

  Sat. 11/1/14 8:50am Jack:

Sem, thanks for the book recommendation. It's on my list.

That O'Death is eerie! Suppose it should be with that name. Fits this gray Day of the Dead.
