It would all be in good fun if it didn’t mean so much to us.
Having been nine and a half up six weeks ago and now down a half a game and knowing the Dodgers are down by a sh*t-ton to the Tigers in Detroit right now, it’s motivating. (Man, I hate interleague). If we can get the win tonight we can erase that nagging half game.
I identify with Steve Miller whom wiki describes thus:
“In 1965, when Miller returned from New York, he was disappointed by the state of the Chicago blues scene, so he moved to Texas in hopes of finishing his education at the University of Texas at Austin.
“He was disenchanted with academic politics at the University, so he took a Volkswagen Bus his father had given him and headed to San Francisco. Upon arrival, he used his last $5 to see the Butterfield Blues Band and Jefferson Airplane at the Fillmore Auditorium
“Miller fell in love with the vibrant San Francisco music scene and decided to stay.”
The last voyage of the Space Shuttle Endeavor to the San Francisco Bay Area, brought a whole lot of people out to see it pass overhead. Just as we were setting up to record at the Marin Headlands, the craft suddenly flew into view over my shoulder!
This is in 1080HD so make sure and set it to that on the player. Thanks to J. Oppenheim for driving and camerawork.
And here’s just the Flyover through the Golden Gate Bridge:
We were on our way to the SF Giants game last week and saw these immense pilings going deep underwater and into the soil for impending building. This is the very beginning of the huge new public space planned for these unused piers – project approved last year by the Interim Mayor and Board.
Incredible to see the specificity with which these long pipes were being placed – two men on a raft floating near the top of the deeply placed piles, as a surveyor takes readings for their placement and an operator swings the long boom of the crane.
Jesse Strickman, of the band Dear Indugu, on guitar/lead vocal giving us a smileworthy eve at the ice cream shoppe (harmony, Leiya Mahoney).
“Let’s sleep together every night
any bed, any floor, any where’s all right
let’s let our bodies reunite
stay up on pills
just talking til daylight
“let’s whisper on train rides
and metal birds in the sky
let’s be madly honest
yeah, let’s keep every promise
“Let’s go out and see the world
and just try to understand
how this mess unfurled
“let’s make reality swirl
laugh until we hurl
“You can teach me your languages
I can teach you chord changes
“We can just do whatever forever and ever
and never get tired whatsoever
“Don’t wanna have a brilliant ballad
’bout a girl who got away
I’d rather write a simple song
about a girl who came to stay.”
[is what I heard. and my favorite harmony is “ality swirl”]
