The new George Harrison cd Brainwashed is wonderful . A lyric follows that is reminiscent of Ginsburg, Ferlinghetti and the many Ram's and Das's from days gone hence...
"And if you don't know where you are going,
Any road will take you there."

From "Any Road", the first cut on George Harrison's

And speaking of not knowing where you are going or what you are looking at ...

Dubya must be in search of GAY SPIDERMAN!

September reports in the New York Post and the Toronto Star, quoting parents' reviews of the Mattel Nimbus 2000 plastic-replica broomstick from the latest Harry Potter movie, highlighted its battery-powered special effect: vibration. Wrote a Texas mother, "I was surprised at how long (my daughter and her friends) can just sit in her room and play with this magic broomstick." Another said her daughter fights her son for it but complains that "the batteries drain too fast." A New Jersey mother, sensing a problem, said her daughter could keep playing with it, but "with the batteries removed." Still another mother said she enjoyed it as much as her daughter.

The meteors looked gosh darn sparkly last night under an almost full moon. Despite the bright moon, I saw them coming down one after the other there around 3:30 a.m. high desert time. Pretty dog-gone amazing. Tonight there is a partial eclipse of the full moon. And today, the new posthumously released George Harrison cd, "Brainwashed" is available.

This just in from cyberspace... A worldwide opinion survey was run by the U.N. The only question asked was:
"Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?"

The survey failed.

In Africa they didn't know what "food" meant.
In Eastern Europe they didn't know what "honest" meant.
In Western Europe they didn't know what "shortage" meant.
In China they didn't know what "opinion" meant.
In the Middle East they didn't know what "solution" meant.
And in the U.S. they didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant.

This lovely bit of freshchaos was among the photographs caught by Wayne Klick last night at the Gateway to Albuquerque's Knob Hill on Route 66 in a delightful little place called Stella Blue.
In a celebration truly fit for its opening night, the featured band was Jazz is Dead.

With amazingly cool Billy Cobham on drums, Little Feat's Kenny Gradney, a dude from the Dixie Dregs, and Jeff Pevaron on slide guitar and vocals.
So cool to see the big tour band bus out on Central in front of this tiny little dive.
And one of this deadhead's dreams was brought to life by receiving a handshake from the incredible Stanley Mouse who calmly doodled in the hallway and sold signed prints for hundred buck pops.

A fine night of FreshChaos was had by all right-cheer in little old Albuquerque.

Freshchaos Favorite Song of the Moment:
From Pearl Jam's latest cd entitled , RIOT ACT,
comes this ditty harkening back to some sort of sixties
approach to a fast-laned life in the here and now.

"I Am Mine"

The selfish they're all standing in line...
Faith in their hope and to buy themselves time.
Me, I figure as each breath goes by,
I only own my mind.

The north is to south what the clock is to time.
There's east and there's west and there everywhere life.
I know that I was born and I know that I'll die.
The in between is mine. I am mine.

And the feeling it gets left behind...
Oh the innocence broken with time...
We're different behind the eyes, there's no need to hide.
We're safe tonight.

The ocean is full cause everyone's crying,
The full moon is looking for friends at high tide.
The sorrow grows bigger when the sorrows denied.
I only know my mind. I am mine.

And the feeling it gets left behind...
Oh the innocence broken with time.
We're different between the lines, there's no need to hide...
Cause we're safe tonight.

And the feeling it gets left behind...
Oh the innocence broken with time.
We're different behind the eyes, there's no need to hide.

And the feeling it gets left behind...
Oh the innocence broken with lies.
We're different behind the eyes.
We're safe tonight.

These lyrics by Sarah McLachlan/Pierre Marchand tell a tale as we float and drift toward a war that will mark our time in history.

Fumbling Towards Ecstasy

All the fear has left me now
I'm not frightened anymore
It's my heart that pounds beneath my flesh
it's my mouth that pushes out this breath

and if I shed a tear I won't cage it
I won't fear love
and if I feel a rage I won't deny it
I won't fear love

Companion to our demons
they will dance
and we will play
With chairs candles and cloth
making darkness in the day
It will be easy to look in or out
upstream or down without a thought

and if I shed a tear I won't cage it
I won't fear love
and if I feel a rage I won't deny it
I won't fear love

Peace in the struggle
to find peace
comfort on the way
to comfort

and if I shed a tear I won't cage it
I won't fear love
if I feel a rage I won't deny it
I won't fear love
I won't fear love
I won't fear love...

ooohh...holy ghosts
This story is making the rounds of cyberspaciousness.

Read the story below before you go to the link. Apparently the owners of this house had been seeing images and hearing voices for quite a while. They found that a lady once lived in the
house that lost her husband during the civil war.
She used to sit at the table and look
across the fields for her loved one returning home. He never came.
They caught this photo of what they claim to be her. If you have volume, turn it up as you can hear
some faint murmurings after about 20 seconds which they say is the ghost talking.
Be patient. Squinting helps. Give it 20 seconds if you dare!

Election Non-Events
All of the efforts to legalize pot failed...DUH...In other smoking news...Florida bans it all over the place; Arizona residents increase their cig taxes.
Oklahomans voted to ban cockfighting leaving New Mexico and Louisiana as the only states in the union where you watch two or more big cocks go at it (legally that is).
Speaking of cocks, Nevada voted to continue their long-standing ban on homosexual marriages of any kind or flavor.
Massachusetts has voted to eliminate bi-lingual education. GO ANGLOS! Just say ˇNO, AMIGOS!
Can't beat your gambling habit??? Well, you gotta move to Hawaii or Utah to remain in a gambling free zone. All other of our states are now united in their legalized need to gamble.
Yo César...New Mexico and Colorado refuse to release their employees to celebrate the now not-a-holiday César Chávez Day.
Oregon rejects Healthcare for All and the sadistic labeling of genetically modified food.
Those Bastards!

Strange to hear that one of the serial snipers spent some time in Tacoma,Washington. So did Ted Bundy. In fact, so did I. Obviously, not everyone from Tacoma is a Big Fat bikini clad turkey...

Many of Tacoma's finest now follow the most incredible band to hit the rainy Northwest in over three months. Their first cd cover shows them in action as The Believers. Wish I could give you their website address but they ain't got one. I am sure though, that we will be hearing more from these fine young men soon. Go BELIEVE.

There are two cd's of primarily cover tunes that I have liked lately. One is Robert Plant's recent Dreamland. The other is this release by The Believers of Tacoma, Washington.
It is filled with just good old plain and simple rock and roll harmonica/guitar/& wonderfully renditioned vocals. The 'covers' include songs I would love to hear more often but this being the twenty first century, these are not songs you hear on today's playlists. Kind of reminds me of, well, a bunch of stuff and times gone by...

A few of the covers include: Mustang Sally, Route 66, Polk Salad Annie, Secret Agent Man, Hot Rod Lincoln, Good Lovin', 16 Tons, Runaway, 20 Fight Rock. Sorry, it's not available nor seen on TV.
Three originals by Tacoma Poet/Writer/Musician, Mike Lewandoski are also featured. And btw, he is one mean-assed harmonica blower. The rest of the group consists of Joe Cannon-lead vocals, Terry Daly-guitar, Rocky Stephenson-bass, and Ken Charboneau-drums.

Fo-Mo-Info and to order a CD, Email Mike at . You Gotta Believe, man.

Here are some thoughts and words of Don Miguel Ruiz
to get us through this the CHAOS of ELECTION WEEK...


Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean.
Avoid using the word to speak against yourself
or to gossip about others. Use the power of your
word in the direction of truth and love.

Nothing others do is because of you. What
others say and do is a projection of their own
reality, their own dream. When you are immune
to the opinions and actions of others, you won't
be the victim of needless suffering.

Find the courage to ask questions and to express
what you really want. Communicate with others
as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings,
sadness, and drama. With just this one agree-
ment, you can completely transform your life.

Your best is going to change from moment to
moment; it will be different when you are
healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circum-
stance, simply do your best, and you will avoid
self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.

I've been thinking that TV is unwatchable until after the elections, but then last night the good old boob tube produced these gems:

Regarding the Prez running around the country campaigning for the GOP, Craig Kilborn offered this, "Experts are worried that campaigning will take the President away from ruining the economy and starting WWIII."

In a repeat featuring Sideshow Bob in election chaos premonitory of Y2K, Bart Simpson exclaimed, "Oh no! The dead have risen from the grave and are voting Republican!"

Vote on, America!

Like Fireworks? A glorious Elfin friend sent us this link...
Fireworks Go Boom!
No green fireworks today in SouthBend, where the screaming Irish lost their lucky charms. Who will still be undefeated come Monday?

Another Stirring of the Political Pot
Michael Moore is in the news (and views of friends) this week...
Here are two links sent in by a staunch, fresh-born Republican:
I feel compelled once again to give you another perspective on Michael Moore's contentions. In fact I'll give you two.
anti-Mr. Moore link1

Speaking of Pol Pot... Las Vegas, Nevada will vote this week on whether or not its hardy citizens can have on hand up top three ounces of marijuana for personal use/abuse. It is "Question Number Nine" on the ballot... Number 9, Number 9, Number 9...
