What? There's only one discussion going on in the Pub?

That's definitely not enough. Barman! Another drink for me and the boys!

In the meantime I'll choose a song from the Jukebox:

Sharing this one here mostly for the name :-)  .... but the sound is quite nice ...

I caught this act on America's Got Talent. Like the judges and the audience, I thought this was going to be silly at best. He plays like this meditative guru and starts to do a deep Tibetan chant. The audience is booing and one judge gives him the X. And then he does something amazing! I don't think he actually does what it appears to be, but it is an amazing trick nonetheless.

Oh, yes, I saw that on TV last night.  I was feeling embarrassed for the guy, then enjoyed the way he wowed the audience (and the judges) with his trick.  It's actually an ancient trick, one performed by the fakirs in India.  Fun to see it show up here (though I thought the Hare Krishna / Tibetan yogi mash-up part of his act was pretty cheesy.)

Something about this crooked machinic polyphony feeds my crooked brain.


13 pages of music videos  but not a single mention of the greatest of all rocknroll bands of all times ?me thinks this

Since I just mentioned this song in another post:

Thanks, Max.  You're right -- it's hardly Happy Hour without a dose of the Stones!

"Something about this crooked machinic polyphony feeds my crooked brain."

Indeed, me too. It reminds me of many intros in Yes's songs, and motifs interspersed throughout them, alternating between this more crooked polyphony and more melodic and harmonic stuff. For example, this one.

One of my new fav tv shows is Continuum. At the end of the newest episode there is a haunting song, Chord Steps by Messy Shelters, following. Ignore the first 15 seconds of ad.

What paths lie ahead for religion and spirituality in the 21st Century? How might the insights of modernity and post-modernity impact and inform humanity's ancient wisdom traditions? How are we to enact, together, new spiritual visions – independently, or within our respective traditions – that can respond adequately to the challenges of our times?

This group is for anyone interested in exploring these questions and tracing out the horizons of an integral post-metaphysical spirituality.
