quote life cyclical [05 Sep 2009|12:35pm]
Before myspace and facebook there was LJ. There is still LJ and I am impressed.

"Don't let the past, remind us of what we are not now"
CROSBY STILLS NASH (and Young)- Suite: Judy Blue Eyes (1969)

"You never change something by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete." Buckminster Fuller

Build to the future. We change and build new, which turns old, then a new, then a old, then a new, then a old. Life's cycle.

'Little Bit 'O Soul" 1967- Music Explosion [16 Oct 2008|11:08am]
The Music Explosion
The Music Explosion was a garage rock band from Mansfield, Ohio. Lead singer Jamie Lyons also recorded several solo singles on Laurie while still recording with the group. His first single, "Soul Struttin'" became a Northern Soul hit in several Northeast regions. Lyons died of heart failure at his home in Little River, SC on September 25, 2006. He was 57. They were discovered and signed by the producers Jerry Kasenetz and Jeff Katz. Kasenetz, Katz and Elliot Chiprut produced the song "Little Bit O'Soul", which paved the way for bubblegum pop bands like Ohio Express and 1910 Fruitgum Company.

"Little Bit O'Soul"
It was written by John Carter and Ken Lewis, who had previously written big hits for The Ivy League and Herman's Hermits.
Record Released 13th May, 1967, Laurie Records #3380, subsequently reissued on Buddah Records. The single peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It has been subsequently covered by several bands including The Ramones, Dodging Susan, and 2 Live Crew, who sampled the melody.

LYRICS
Now when you're feelin' low and the fish won't bite
You need a little bit o' soul to put you right
You gotta make like you wanna kneel and pray
And then a little bit of soul will come your way

Now when your girl is gone and you're broke in two
You need a little bit o' soul to see you through
And when you raise the roof with your rock'n'roll
You'll get a lot more kicks with a little bit o' soul

And when your party falls 'cause ain't nobody groovin'
A little bit of soul and it really starts movin', yeah

And when you're in a mess and you feel like cryin'
Just remember this little song of mine
And as you go through life tryin' to reach your goal
Just remember what I said about a little bit o'soul

A little bit o' soul, yeah (a little bit o' soul)

Come with me my love
To the sea, the sea of love
I want to tell you
How much I love you

Do you remember when we met
Thats the day I knew you were my pet
I want to tell you
How much I love you

Come with me
To the sea, of love

Do you remember when we met
Thats the day I knew you were my pet
I want to tell you
How much I love you

Come with me
To the sea, of love

Do you remember when we met
Thats the day I knew you were my pet
I want to tell you
How much I love you

I want to tell you
How much I love you
I want to tell you
How much I love you

Some day, when I'm awfully low,
When the world is cold,
I will feel a glow just thinking of you...
And the way you look tonight.

Yes you're lovely, with your smile so warm
And your cheeks so soft,
There is nothing for me but to love you,
And the way you look tonight.

With each word your tenderness grows,
Tearing my fear apart...
And that laugh that wrinkles your nose,
It touches my foolish heart.

Lovely ... Never, ever change.
Keep that breathless charm.
Won't you please arrange it ?
'Cause I love you ... Just the way you look tonight.

Mm, Mm, Mm, Mm,
Just the way you look to-night.

You Are Creepy

Serial killers would run away from you in a flash.


How You Life Your Life

You tend to deprive yourself of things you crave, for your own good.
You say whatever is on your mind. Other people's reactions don't phase you.
You prefer a variety of friends and tend to change friends quickly.
You tend to dream big, but you worry that your dreams aren't attainable.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - City Of Angels Lyrics [03 Sep 2005|11:48pm]
(I think I may have posted this a few years ago but here it is again, found at: http://www.seeklyrics.com)


Sometimes I feel like
I don't have a partner
Sometimes I feel like
My only friend
Is the city I live in the city of angels?
As lonely as I am, together we cry

I drive on the streets cuz
shes my companion
I walk through the hills cuz
She knows who I am
She sees my good deeds and
She kisses the wind and
I never worry
now that is a lie

I dont ever wanna feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way
I dont ever wanna feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way

Its hard to believe that
Theres nobody out there
Its hard to believe
That I'm all alone
At least I have heard her
The city she loves me
As lonely as I am, together we cry

I dont ever wanna feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way
I dont ever wanna feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way, yeah

founder of NTWH (National Theatre Workshop of the Handicapped) [11 Aug 2005|02:33pm]
http://abcnews.go.com/WNT/PersonOfWeek/story?id=1012860&page=1
Aug. 5, 2005 — Rick Curry is the founder of The National Theatre Workshop of the Handicapped. The company is rehearsing for a variety show premiering next week in New York City.

"A lot of people think that becoming an actor is costuming and makeup, a hiding behind things," said Curry, "but the disabled have an even greater difficulty because to expose themselves as exactly what they are in — their own brokenness — is something that's an extraordinary opportunity for them."

Like any other theater workshop, Curry's group teaches acting, voice, writing, improvisation, comedy and even dance.

"If you look upon dance as something Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers do, well, then we wouldn't be included in that," said Curry. "But if you think of dance as moving your body to music, hey, we're in. Not only are we in, we're going to show you how we do it."

How does someone have the foresight to found a theater group for the disabled? Curry always saw his handicap as a blessing, one that led him to the theater.

"I think the greatest gift that I've ever been given in all my life is that I was born with only one arm," he said.


Curry's Early Beginnings

Curry, who grew up in Philadelphia, was never coddled by his family.

"It was an Irish Catholic family, and there were many topics that we didn't discuss and me being born with one arm was one of them," he said.

Curry's father kindled his love of the theater and the healing power of performance when he enrolled Rick in the Bessie V. Hicks School of Drama.

"When I got into improvisation classes," said Curry, "I realized that I really could become anything that I wanted to become. I was able to speak, and to get people to react to me in a positive way. I was smitten for life."

Because of his upbringing, Curry hadn't dealt with discrimination. But that changed when he went on an audition while in graduate school.

"I showed up all revved up to do this audition for a mouthwash," he said, "and the receptionist thought I'd been sent up as a practical joke. She kept pointing at my arm and laughing hysterical. When I realized that she wasn't kidding, that she was dead serious, that I'd met this blatant form of prejudice, this kind of ignorance, it absolutely threw me for a loop. I was so angry and so hurt."

That anger and hurt spurred him to action. Soon after, he started the workshop. For 28 years, he has been teaching, directing, and helping the disabled. Curry says that part is a joy — the difficulty is convincing the able-bodied of its value.



"It's a struggle to convince the giving community that the arts are absolutely imperative for the disabled person to be able to speak for themselves," Curry said. "That's what wears me out. "

acting and disability [11 Aug 2005|02:30pm]
Screen Actors Guild: ³The Employment of Performers with Disabilities in the
Entertainment Industry²

The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) has just released a report on disabled
performers to mark the 15th anniversary of the Americans With Disability Act
(ADA). According to the report ³ 54 million Americans (20 percent of all
Americans) are living with a mental or physical disability, yet less than 2
percent of TV show characters display a disability and only 0.5 percent have
speaking roles. General findings show that performers with disabilities are
more than 50 percent more likely to experience workplace discrimination than
Americans without disabilities.²

These findings are hardly surprising, but will be a useful tool for to
expanding the opportunities available in the entertainment industry for
disabled performers. Until now little data existed on the experiences and
representation of disabled performers. The annual Casting Data Report
tallies opportunities in film and television solely by race, ethnicity,
gender and age. The report can be downloaded from http://

"Puttin' On The Ritz" Irving Berlin, version done by artist: Taco [11 Aug 2005|02:28pm]
Have you seen the well to do?
Up and down Park Avenue?
On that famous thoroughfare,
With their noses in the air?
High hats and arrowed collars,
Wide spats and fifteen dollars.
Spending every dime,
For a wonderful time!

If you're blue and you don't know,
Where to go to, why don't you go,
Where fashion sits?
Puttin' On The Ritz.
Different types, who wear a day,
Co-pants with stripes, and cut away,
Coat, perfect fits?
Puttin' On The Ritz.

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper,
Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper.
Super-duper!

Come, let's mix where Rockerfellas,
Walk with sticks, or umbrellas,
In their mitts.
Puttin' On The Ritz.
Spangled gowns upon a beauty of hand-me-downs, on clown and cutie,
All misfits.
Puttin' On The Ritz.

Tips his hat just like an English chappie,
To a lady with the wealthy happy.
Very Snappy!

You'll declare it's simply topping,
To be there, and hear them swapping,
Smart titbits.
Puttin' On The Ritz.
Puttin' On The Ritz.
Puttin' On The Ritz!!

"Break Out" Swing Out Sister, Music & Lyrics : Corinne Drewery - Jackson - Andrew Connell [11 Aug 2005|02:26pm]
When explanations make no sense
When ev'ry answer's wrong
You're fighting with lost confidence
All expectations gone
The time has come to make or break
Move on, don't hesitate
Break out

Don't stop to ask
Now you've found a break to make at last
You've got to find a way
Say what you want to say
Break out

When situations never change
Tomorrow looks unsure
Don't leave your destiny to chance
What are you waiting for
The time has come to make or break
Break out

Don't stop to ask
Now you've found a break to make at last
You've got to find a way
Say what you want to say
Break out

Don't stop to ask
Now you've found a break to make at last
You've got to find a way
Say what you want to say
Break out

Some people stop at nothing
If you're searching for something
Lay down the law
Shout out for more
Break out and shout
Day in day out
Break out

Don't stop to ask
Now you've found a break to make at last
You've got to find a way
Say what you want to say
Break out

Don't stop to ask
Now you've found a break to make at last
You've got to find a way
Say what you want to say
Break out

Don't stop to ask
Now you've found a break to make at last
You've got to find a way
Say what you want to say
Break out

Don't stop to ask
Now you've found a break to make at last
You've got to find a way
Say what you want to say
Break out

Shed a tear cause I'm missin you

Girl, I think bout you every day now
Was a time when I wasn't sure

All we need is just a little patience
(patience)

If I can't have you right now I'll wait dear
Sometimes I get so tense but I can't speed up the time
But you know love there's one more thing to consider

Said woman take it slow and things will be just fine
You and I'll just use a little patience
Said sugar take the time cause the lights are shining bright
You and I've got what it takes to make it
We won't fake it, I'll never break it
Cause I can't take it

I'VE BEEN WALKING THE STREETS AT NIGHT
JUST TRYING TO GET IT RIGHT

YOU KNOW I DON'T LIKE BEING STUCK IN THE CROWD
AND THE STREETS DON'T CHANGE
BUT MAYBE THE NAMES
I AIN'T GOT TIME FOR THE GAME CAUSE I NEED YOU
YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, CAUSE I NEED YOU
OOO I NEED YOU, WHOA I NEED YOU
OOOOH, ALL THIS TIME

"DO IT OR DIE" - Atlanta Rhythm Section [10 Aug 2005|10:09pm]
Don't let your troubles make you cry
Don't waste a moment wonderin' why
When ev'rything goes wrong
You have to go on
And do it or die
Do it or die now
Stand your ground

Don't let your bad breaks go gettin' you down
Even when times get rough
And you've had enough
You still gotta try
Do it no matter what the people say
They don't even know you

Die before you let them stand in your way
(Don't you know that)
You should know that life is a gamble all along
Winners or losers you keep rollin' on
So go on and roll the dice
You only live twice
So do it or die

Carpe Diem...section of poem I found in a chain mail [08 Aug 2005|06:08am]
If I knew it would be the last time
I would be there to share your day,
Well I'm sure you'll have so many more,
so I can let just this one slip away.

For surely there's always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight,
and we always get a second chance
to make everything just right.

But just in case I might be wrong,
and today is all I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you
and I hope we never forget.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance
I get to hold my loved ones tight.
