Ken Kesey quotes plus music!

Just for a bit of early morning uplift:

I’d rather be a lightning rod than a seismograph.

Listen, wait, and be patient. Every shaman knows you have to deal with the fire that’s in your audience’s eye.

Loved. You can’t use it in the past tense. Death does not stop that love at all.

Man, when you lose your laugh you lose your footing.

Nowhere else in history has there ever been a flag that stands for the right to burn itself. This is the fractal of our flag. It stands for the right to destroy itself.

People think love is an emotion. Love is good sense.

Ritual is necessary for us to know anything.

Take what you can use and let the rest go by


Blogging the past, with thanks to

Now, some music.

Frank Zappa’s last interview:

Sweet home alabama

she’s buying a stairway

to california dreamin’

oh lord, won’t you buy me

a small circle of friends.

And that’s just the first verse!

    in your soul kitchen

    I was born in chicago

    in the ghetto

    now i’m on top of the world

    looking down at my generation

    oh lord it feels, like I’ve been tied to a whipping post
