who's yer daddyCasey said just before he died,There're two more roads I would like to ride.The fireman said, Which ones can they be?Oh the Northern Pacific and the Santa Fe.Mrs. Jones sat at her bed a-sighingJust to hear the news that her Casey was dying.Hush up children, and quit your cryin',For you've got another poppa on the Salt Lake Line.Casey Jones - got another poppa.Casey Jones - on the Salt Lake Line.Casey Jones - got another poppa.For you've got another poppa on the Salt Lake Line.
Bells and Whistles"Reich: Does "Casey Jones" grate on you when you hear it sometimes? Garcia: Sometimes, but that's what it's supposed to do. (laughs) Reich: It's such a sing-songy thing... Garcia: Right. And it's got a split-second little delay, which sounds very mechanical, like a typewriter almost, on the vocal, which is like a little bit jangly, and the whole thing is, well...I always thought it's a pretty good musical picture of what cocaine is like. A little bit evil. And hard-edged. And also that sing-songy thing, because that's what it is, a sing-songy thing, a little melody that gets in your head."--p. 96.
As paintings they are questionable, as photographs-wow. Isn't that funny?I can't tell you why that is, but the process to get them here is really fascinating. Painters are furiously painting from photos, video stills, dioramas. miniature models, 3-d computer programs. photographers are photographing miniature sets, putting finishing touches on photoshop, using the elaborate set constructions of big budget movies and theatres. I see a trend culminating in....??? ---the race to the finish line??
I forgot to include photoshop in the painters furiously painting from .. category.
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come / When we have shuffled off this mortal coil."I'm living but I'm feeling numb, can see it in my stareI wear a mask so falsely numb, and I don't know who I amDespite the worlds inside of me, thwarting me awayI've noticed in other eyes, time's closing inBut when the thunder breaks, it breaks for you and meTarantula, tarantula, tarantula, tarantulaThe future's looking rather grim, strange black tideDecisions lie with stupid men, alone with my lifeThat choking and the hype in me, expecting me to fallBut only if I'm threatened will the tables turnBut when the thunder breaks, it breaks for you and meTarantula, tarantula, tarantula, tarantulaMy world's under a sentence of death, I was born undergroundBut when the pressure gets too much for me, I bite
these are quite stunning as photos...but i get he feeling that that isnt the morning fog but instead the haze of irony?
nice photograph - it would be lame if someone made a painting of it
