Hop in! Where you headed?

I aim this blog at Hitchhiking stories, obviously. However, you can take that in the 'poetic' sense, as we are 'snakes' in time and the asphalt rivers take us to many places, as well as 'places'..

PLEASE REMEMBER TO READ PREVIOUS PAGES..
.... occasionally my own 'Road' spurs me to use this blog to communicate with someone I've 'travelled with' who holds a special meaning to me.

Interesting website: LUMOSITY

Before they passed on, my folks got me a little machine that had I think 100 or so New York Times crosswords on it... I never got a new card for it, because when I started on the hundred the second time, I realized I'd pretty much forgotten it, and now i'm sure they have a new format and I don't know if they still have to old cards...anyway, I found it worked like a cup of coffee in the morning, or with coffee to wake up my brain.
I just came across this website for perking up your brain in different ways.
It seems they have alot of good backers. After three days of mind improvement games, you can join, if it looks good to you.

Once you get an account, you play games every day to increase your abilities in different ways.

Local Yakima resident with the Jagger on SUPERHEAVY

THE SONG 'BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE' ON SUPERHEAVY, A GROUP WITH MICK JAGGER, FEATURES KEYBOARDIST BART RODERICK FROM YAKIMA, WA.


HE'S THE BROTHER OF AN OLD FRIEND OF MINE WHO I DROPPED IN ON THE OTHER DAY. WHEN THE CONVERSATION GOT AROUND TO BART, DAVID SAID, "DID YOU HEAR BART'S IN THE ROLLING STONES NOW?" I think bart teaches school in a neighboring town to yakima. I THOUGHT I'D THEN HEAR A STORY ABOUT A BUNCH OF OLD FARTS WHO 'CALL THEMSELVES' THE STONES. I WAS WRONG.

THE wAY DAVID TELLS THE TALE, PAUL ALLEN (SEATTLE EXPERIENCE MUSIC PROJECT) HEARD ABOUT BART'S TALENT ON THE KEYBOARDS [HE IS VERY ACCOMPLISHED], AND I THINK MET HIM IN SEATTLE AND JAMMED SOME WITH HIM, IF I REMEMBER DAVE'S VERSION RIGHT. THEN, LATER, PAUL CALLED BART AND ASKED HIM TO JOIN HIM ON HIS YACHT, WHICH HE WAS THEN MOORING OFF THE COAST OF ITALY. APPARENTLY BART (KEYBOARDS), PAUL ALLEN (GUITAR), AND A THIRD FELLOW (BASS, I BELIEVE)..(I APOLOGIZE IF I GOT ANY FACTS WRONG BUT THIS IS THE WAY I HEARD IT)... WERE THE ENTERTAINMENT FOR PAUL'S GUESTS.
I CAN ONLY IMAGINE THE TYPES OF PEOPLE ENJOYING THE PARTY, WINE GLASSES IN HAND. A LATE ARRIVAL WAS INTRODUCED TO BART, AND I GUESS THEY HIT IT OFF. THIS LATE ARRIVAL SHARED WITH BART HIS FRUSTRATION WITH A TUNE HE'D BEEN WORKING ON--FINDING A BRIDGE BETWEEN TWO PARTS, I BELIEVE... OH! DID I TELL YOU IT WAS MICk JAGGER?..SORRY, IT WAS.... WHEREUPON BART (AS DAVE TELLS IT) SAID, "WHAT ABOUT THIS?..." AND RAN HIS FINGERS OVER THE IVORIES.
IN SHORT, MICK WAS IMPRESSED. HE BROUGHT BART TO ABBEY ROAD , as dave told me [he might've been wrong about that detail], but on record the album was recorded at jim henson recording studios TO RECORD, WHAT I BELIEVE IS THIS SONG : BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE.

Hey all you beautiful people
Don’t let your life go by
Spark it up, live it up right now!
Hey all of you beautiful people
Don’t let ‘em dim us down
Don’t let ‘em dim you down!

Been stolen and been taken...
Barely cryptic while I’m singing this song for you
Singing this song for you right now!
So what you gonna do about it?

Hey all you beautiful people
Don’t let your life go by
Spark it up, live it up right now!
Hey all of you beautiful people
Don’t let ‘em dim us down
Don’t let ‘em dim you down!
Spark it up, live it up right now!

Watch where you step...
..on my spot...
..carrying loser that I ...
Go for creepy crawlers
Spiderman, Peter Parker...
Kingston London
Now you're a New Yorker...

Chorus:
Hey all of you beautiful people

Always On Your Side (Sheryl Crow)






"Always On Your Side"


My yesterdays are all boxed up and neatly put away
But every now and then you come to mind
Cause you were always waiting to be picked to play the game
But when your name was called, you found a place to hide
When you knew that I was always on your side

Well everything was easy then, so sweet and innocent
My demons and my angels reappear
Leavin' only traces of the man you thought I'd be
Too afraid to hear the words I always feared
Leavin' you with only questions all these years

But is there someplace far away, someplace where all is clear
Easy to start over with the ones you hold so dear
Or are you left to wonder, all alone, eternally
This isn't how it's really meant to be
No it isn't how it's really meant to be

Well they say that love is in the air, never is it clear,
How to pull it close and make it stay
Butterflies are free to fly, and so they fly away
And I'm left to carry on and wonder why
Even through it all, I'm always on your side

But is there someplace far away, someplace where all is clear
Easy to start over with the ones you hold so dear
Or are you left to wonder, all alone, eternally
This isn't how it's really meant to be
No it isn't how it's really meant to be

Well they say that love is in the air, never is it clear
How to pull it close and make it stay
Butterflies are free to fly, why do they fly away
Leavin' me to carry on and wonder why
Was it you that kept me wondering through this life
When you know that I was always on your side
