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:

I was listening to the original of this song today on the radio and some lyrics hit me for the first time:

That kind of luxe just ain't for us
We crave a different kind of buzz

Which reminded me of how Rifkin depicts the next generation's, and some of us old-schooler's, values here.

Yeah, it's a really nice collaboration.  The group she's collaborating with, Pentatonix, does some excellent a cappella covers of popular songs.  I like their version of Lorde's Royals (original here):



Fallon is quite a talent. One of my favorites was Tebowie:

Waking up to some Nepali rock:

Only had time for the first one this morning but loved it. I'm going to steal it for my blog, thanks.

Recent posts on the fold reminded me of this classic:

This is a live concert recording of my band back in the '80s, playing a song the guitarist, Jimmy Thornton, wrote as part of a soundtrack he was working on for his brother Billy Bob's forthcoming movie, Slingblade.  Not sure what to call the genre: unhinged bluegrass punk?

What was your role in the band?

I played the bass (and wrote some lyrics for a couple of the songs).  In this recording, we were playing at a battle of the bands at a club in Houston -- and eventually got kicked out for being too loud!

I just came across this "long lost" recording, and also found some interesting acoustic songs by Jimmy.  I plan on digitalizing them soon and may post them here.

Here's another song from the tape I am digitalizing.  This is an acoustic song by Jimmy -- a kind of dirge, remembering his former bandmates and band (The Jones).  The lyrics are quite good, in my opinion, if you have the patience to listen (and the end gets pretty intense).

I was really glad when he got clean.

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.
