    Do I know this song? It's my anthem! It's my epitaph!
    But I learned it in nefariousness gatherings encased in memories
    deeply clouded but full of laughter.

    It was always followed by or preceded with "Don't Bogart that joint my friend."

    This is the first time I've heard a store bought version...worth every penny I'd say.

    I suppose this post earns a LOL? But it's undoubtedly in the eye of the holder be, err, beholder.

    I wonder if Youtube monitors your amount of DLing and gets stingy after a while? Kinda makes sense in this over monitored world?

    I'm thinking that MAYBE I heard this but was stoned and missed it way back when. It's very amusing and also hits the spot in truthfulness in a way I'm somewhat loathe to admit. Nolo Contendere, yer honor.

    Unfortunately it's not possible for the "regular audio video gear" equipped person to try to ascertain the validity of these videos. All I know is that if I witnessed the ones that were the most easily seen as unusual in person they would freak me the flock out.

    Your already freaked out! And who wouldn't be!

    But I'll add this the girl in the train/pushing hands...
    Watch again as you would as movie critic.

    I would debunk it as just plain bad acting.
    Watch the supposedly terrified men trying to look terrified.

    if this was in a movie I'd give it two stars. Why two, because any effort at all deserves at lest two starts.
    But this begs the real question. Are their forces at work in this world that are beyond our understanding...

    How best to get this across....

    You've heard of women right...?":O}

    Warsaw 1941
    Song by Johnny Clegg
    Lyrics
    Amambuka, amambuka azothengisa izwe lakithi, izwe lakithi
    He was taken in the night
    They came without any warning
    No time to hide or fight
    They came like bees aswarming
    The questions start to fly
    Will he break or will he defy?
    Can he withstand the worst that is to come?
    A child in a man's clothing
    Resisting the fascist' ploy
    The underground puts iron in the heart of any boy
    Swimming in a sea of pain, he knows this is the end
    He hears himself whisper the name of his best friend
    I never betrayed you, and I never betrayed the revolution
    I just didn't want to die alone, I needed you to see me home
    And if I could save you, and if I could find a solution
    I would die a thousand times, to get you out of here
    Sharing the same cold cell
    Betrayer and betrayed
    An island with two frightened castaways
    Not a word is spoken,
    How can he explain?
    Through swollen eyes they watch the dawn's first rays
    It's all over now
    They stand backs to the wall
    Waiting for the fascist's sword to fall
    In the desperation of a young life about to end
    He turns before the bullet
    And forgives a friend
    I never betrayed you, and I never betrayed the revolution
    I just didn't want to die alone, I needed you to see me home
    And if I could save you, and if I could find a solution
    I would die a thousand times, to get you out of here

    Maybe you found the secret to ridding oneself of dis-funktional links of the entertainment variety?

    Yes, but the men seem to "fly" from street level to a spot a couple of feet above up the side of that bus. Yet I find a lot of possible "bogusity" in that particular vid.

    Perhaps this sounded better in the early 70's. It's a great one imho.

    I've noticed that a lot of his work sounded great in the "70's"- not so much anymore. Another great one that failed the test of time

    This song rises from the deeps to break upon my shore.



    Love Is the Seventh Wave
    Sting
    In the empire of the senses
    You're the queen of all you survey
    All the cities all the nation
    Everything that falls your way
    There is a deeper world than this
    That you don't understand
    There is a deeper world that this
    Tugging at your hand
    Every ripple on the ocean
    Every leaf on every tree
    Every sand dune in the desert
    Every power we never see
    There is a deeper wave than this
    Swelling in the world
    There is a deeper wave than this
    Listen to me girl
    Feel it rising in the cities
    Feel it sweeping over land
    Over borders, over frontiers
    Nothing will its power withstand
    There is no deeper wave than this
    Rising in the world
    There is no deeper wave than this
    Listen to me girl
    All the bloodshed all the anger
    All the weapons all the greed
    All the armies all the missiles
    All the symbols of that fear
    There is a deeper wave than this
    Rising in the world
    There is a deeper wave than this
    Listen to me girl
    At the still point of destruction
    At the center of the fury
    All the angels all the devils
    All around us can't you see
    There is a deeper wave than this
    Rising in the land
    There is a deeper wave than this
    Nothing will withstand
    I say love is the seventh wave

    A tip from Harry Houdini

    " I never ask how they did that when I want to understand an illusion.
    I just ask how could I do that."

    Harry looked into every type of magic, talking to the dead, supposed telekinesis
    fortune telling. He publicly exposed them all.

    Harry wanted to believe. He just never allowed himself to be deceived.
    And he held in contempt those who preyed upon the superstitions and fears of those less well trained and less observant than himself.
