    J MascisHickory Wind (The Byrds)  

    This is a phenomenal cover. The original, a basically perfect slice of country rock defined by Gram Parsons. A beautiful song evocative of place even if you’ve never been there.

    J does it justice, but by making it sound like it would have been the perfect b-side to Freak Scene.

  7. "Every American wants MORE MORE of the world and why not, you only live once. But the mistake made in America is persons accumulate more more dead matter, machinery, possessions & rugs & fact information at the expense of what really counts as more: feeling, good feeling, sex feeling, tenderness feeling, mutual feeling. You own twice as much rug if you’re twice as aware of the rug."
    — Allen Ginsberg (via thegoldeneternity)

  8. "A change of heart requires a great deal of courage and a great deal of compassion. The courage is to not avert our gaze, but instead to turn to the various sufferings in our own life or in the world around us and see them with the concern and compassionate eyes of the Buddha."

  11. "Nowadays I try not to allow myself to be influenced by anything external. I want to focus on coming up with new musical works based solely on what the demonic voices inside my head are constantly screaming about."

  12. "The observations and encounters of a devotee of solitude and silence are at once less distinct and more penetrating than those of the sociable man; his thoughts are weightier, stranger, and never without a tinge of sadness. Images and perceptions which might otherwise be easily dispelled by a glance, a laugh, an exchange of comments, concern him unduly, they sink into mute depths, take on significance, become experiences, adventures, emotions."
    — Thomas Mann - Death In Venice (via mfs)

    Beautiful pictures.


    These photos were made in the Camden (N. J. ) Music Fair. Joan Baez was the only performer on the billing; but she invited Bob Dylan up to perform with her, and their joint set occupied about 1/3 of the entire concert. These pictures are scanned from Ektachrome slides (hence some blurriness and dust); the personal computer had not yet been invented.
    I shot these witha Contax IIa or IIIa; the lens was either a Zeiss or a Nikon lens with a Contax mount.
