Fuck, I wasn't ready for this today. 💔😢 Rest in peace Daniel Johnston. 😭 My wedding song:

 

 

 

A child-like purity, despite all of his trials.  He will be missed.

"All my life I've been waiting for,

I've been praying for,

for the people to say

'That we don't wanna fight no more.

There'll be no more war.' 

And our children will play.

One day

One day

One day"

Saw him in Vancouver around 2 years ago now... amazing show.

 

Very fortunate to have seen such a legend at my age.

speaking of synthesis...

 

 

Claypool can do wrong. My biggest inspiration for ever picking up a bass.

Suffering from a cold and a headache, today I felt strangely compelled to listen to some old Madonna songs, including her popular "Miss American Pie." As I wasn't quite sure what the lyrics meant, I decided to do some searches and learned not only that I was not the only one with that issue, but also something I am sure most of you American bums are already well aware of:

 

This song was first presented by Don McLean in 1971 and reached the first place in the charts of the US and of other countries, despite its considerable lenght of eight-and-a-half minutes. More importantly, it reflected the changes in mentality from the beautiful, unspoilt world of the 50's to the growing dissatisfaction and social criticism of the 60's, climaxing in the revolutionary spirit and invocation of Anarchism at the end of that decade.

 

 

Moreover the song made me wonder, what are we (in Western society) at now? Did the music really die - and that's that? Or are we writing yet another song?

 

Thoughts?
