Music Thingy

Here's a music question thingy I stoled from Stephanie.

Of all the bands & artists in your collection, of which one do you own the most albums? The Grateful Dead- by a lot. Between the 36 Volumes of Dick's Picks, and the downloaded stuff(not to mention the studio stuff and the other "official" live recordings), I might be in the hundreds. Obsessive ? Not me.

* What was the last song you listened to? Not Dark Yet- Bob Dylan

* What’s in your CD player right now? In The cd player in our living room has 5 cd's of songs I put together that my twins might like to dance to, my personal music is on an IPod, I'm currently listening to a playlist called "Don't Harsh My Mellow"

* What are your favorite instruments? The keytar...Kidding. I guess I'm a guitar guy.

* Who’s your favorite local artist/band? We live in Florida now, Tom Petty is originally from here, does that count ?

* What was the last show you attended? Bob Dylan & Merle Haggard in Chicago.

* What was the greatest show you’ve ever been to? the Jerry Garcia Band at the Lunt-Fontaine Theater on Broadway in NYC.
I wrote about it here.
The Springsteen and all other Grateful Dead/Jerry Garcia Band/Phile lesh & Friends shows I've been to would be a close second.

* What’s the worst band you’ve ever seen in concert? 10,000 Maniacs- very boring. the only highlight was Natalie Merchant playing a solo piano version of "Verdi Cries", and slamming her hands down on the keys and saying "Good night" when someone yelled out "Peace Train" !!

* What band do you love musically but hate the members of? Definitely the River Bottom Nightmare Band- those guys were jerks, but they rocked that talent show and beat Emmit Otter's Jug Band fair and square.

* What is the most musically involved you have ever been? Drunkenly reciting my "poetry" over a guitar and bass at a party.

* What show are you looking forward to? I hear that Phil is on the mend and might be touring this summer, if he decides to come anywhere near here, that would be nice.

* What is your favorite band shirt? I had this BRIGHT orange tie-dye of a skeleton surfing on the state of California that I wore until it fell apart. Currently, I have a shirt that has a Grateful Dead Steal Your face logo with a NY Mets symbol in the middle.

* What musician would you like to hang out with for a day? Jerome John Garcia.

* What musician would you like to be in love with you for a day? Liz Phair

* What was your last musical “phase” before you wised up? I don't know that I ever "wised up".

* Sabbath or solo Ozzy? Is this even a question ? Black Sabbath

* Did you know that filling out this meme makes you a music geek? I don't think filling this out made me a music geek. I think I've been a music geek for a very long time, and I'm okay with that.

* What was the greatest decade for music? The 70's- a great period for the Grateful Dead, Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, Bob Dylan,some criminally underrated Stones music-it wasn't all disco.

* What is your favorite movie soundtrack? The Harder They Come

* Who is your favorite artist who is much better live than on a recording? It's almost a cliche now, but the Grateful Dead. Though I am one who actually enjoys their studio work quite a bit, nothing compares to hearing the boys live.

* Do you have a hidden desire to be a popular musician? Of course.

* Have you ever used drugs to enhance the music experience? How else can you find a way to enjoy "Dark Star" coming out of only one speaker ?

* What was the last song you heard that gave you a chill? I think That would be "Over Yonder(Jonathon's Song)" by Steve Earle- It's about a guy who's going to be executed. This part always gets me
"The world will turn around without me
The sun'll come up in the East
Shining down on all of them that hate me
I hope my going brings 'em peace"

* Where would you be without music? I could not even begin to answer that. I simply don't want to know.

I could enjoy Dark Star if Steve was singing it through a tin can. I love that song.

I want Ripple played at my funeral.

PS: Those mushroom things taste like ass...but you forget that after a little while.

PPS: Did you happen to see my shirt in the field anywhere? I can't remember where or at what point I lost it.

Who the hell is Steve??

Steph- Amen to that.

Miss Ann- it was not a dis on Dark Star at all- My sophomore year of college I had a tape player wired through a 20 year old record player, and one of the speakers gave out, and my recording of Dark Star was on two channels, so I only heard half of it-one night on thought it was the greatest thing we had ever heard.
I always thought of "Mission in The Rain" at my funeral. But "Ripple" would be good too. maybe I'll have to make a funeral mix for myself.
Amen on the mushrooms. Putting them in applesauce sometimes worked.
I think i saw your shirt over by that chick who was by that dude with the dog.

Mark- I was guessing Steve Parish.

Ripple is my all time favorite song!

Making tea with the shrooms is how I was taught to avoid the funky taste.

Definitely worked for us :)

A bank is a financial institution that accepts deposits and channels those deposits into lending activities. Banks primarily provide financial services to customers while enriching investors. Government restrictions on financial activities by banks vary over time and location. Bank are important players in financial markets and offer services such as investment funds and loans. In some countries such as Germany, banks have historically owned major stakes in industrial corporations while in other countries such as the United States bank are prohibited from owning non-financial companies. In Japan, banks are usually the nexus of a cross-share holding entity known as the keiretsu. In France, bancassurance is prevalent, as most banks offer insurance services (and now real estate services) to their clients.

The level of government regulation of the banking industry varies widely, with countries such as Iceland, having relatively light regulation of the banking sector, and countries such as China having a wide variety of regulations but no systematic process that can be followed typical of a communist system.[url=]CLICK HERE[/url]
