Everyone here is a a part of a larger organism that seeps into the soul. If you're looking for technical info about the songs, sorry. Which is to say that ITK- Rock the Casbah is the Real Deal. And for good measure, the Plunger/ITK/Plunger sandwich encore sent us spinning out into the snowy night still dancing a perma-grin jig. Perfect on-the-fly song selection, execution, and exploration. 1st show as well and have enjoyed every moment since then. I'm always a sucker for Miami Virtue, as it so often lends itself as a pliable launching pad, and this excursion is top notch. Yet, a fantastic and intimate show in a great, classic Wisconsin atmosphere. Great show on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (my alma mater). Kinda a strange venue, but this show will always hold a place in my heart, if only because (at the time) it was home. The tribute to spinal shaft was just rockin' best one yet. Written by Robbie Smith Now, when the first dance starts it ignites her flame Puttin the younger dancers to shame Don’t ask for her heart it’s out on loan She’s starting out from the top age unknown Well, she twirls on her heels as she tweaks her skirt Never too late for a wink and a flirt Her hair is down though her kids are grown She’s starting out from the top age unknown Well she’s got no fixed address – no set time No nervous alarm goin’ off at nine No pressing need to please someone else Sweep aside the photos on that ol’ mantle shelf Well, she spent all her younger days in care Sharing all that was hers to share Now she’s time on her hands to call her own She’s starting out from the top age unknown (yodel break) Gotta love her Gotta love her Gotta love her Gotta love her Gotta love her Gotta love her – hey Gotta love her Gotta love her Gotta love her Gotta love her Gotta love her Gotta love her Well, she’s slipped the reins of her menial toil She’s found joy even love can’t spoil No longer a slave in the comfort zone She’s starting out from the top age unknown Well she’s got no fixed address – no set time Don’t have to be home and in bed by nine No pressing need to be someone else Sweep aside the photos on that ol’ mantle shelf Instra verse Gotta Love her part Now she flashes her eyes her smile shines through Fresh love in her blood – it all seems new New people to meet new skills to hone She’s starting out from the top age unknown (yodel break) tag She’s starting out from the top age unknown Written by Robbie Smith and Chett Buchanan Hearing the school bell wise guys & fools, well, it’s the SAME OLD THING Tormenting the teacher, trying to reach her – it’s the SAME OLD THING Why do we do it? Too far gone – Hey I’m-ah too far gone Too far gone for close-ups I’m just too far gone And I’m too far gone – and I’m too far gone Too far gone for close-ups – I’m just too far gone [1st voice] Too far gone [2nd voice] too far gone [both voices in unison] Too far gone [both voices in harmony] Hey I’m- a too far gone Too far gone – Hey I’m-a too far gone Too far gone for close-ups – I’m just too far gone Too far gone – too far gone Too far gone for close-ups I’m just too far gone And I’m too far – too far too far too far…We live and lose it over and over again Grasping the bars and reaching for the stars Through life’s window pain. Same kind of fears same kind of doubt We just need some help to figure it out We do… too far gone Too far gone for close-ups – I’m just too far…
She is an absolutely perfectly gaited mare (which is why we bred her) that was never able to race due to a botched surgery.

Now, no one believes me when I tell them that they played it (that was not at the show) - please get these facts updated on the site - Thank You!!!! the jimmys in this are off the chainwax They won me over. That Higgins was awesome with the Thunderstruck jam. Standing in front of me is a girl in a tank top and an Umphrey's Mc Gee hat. An incredibly small, intimate venue with superb sound in a breathtakingly beautiful corner of this troubled planet? By set break, I was already satiated up to my eyeballs.
Ringo was on point, jam started off slow and teased so hard...they just let it rip. Also, in the Song archives, it is stated that it was only played by UM one time -- 12 years ago! Absolutely worth the drive back and forth from Chicago and the lack of sleep that resulted. I was hoping for Attachments, and they opened with it. It was as if the guys were anticipating a lot of people who hadn't seen them before and decided to give them a potpourri- Puppet String, Nemo, Ringo, Higgins, AIT (of course! At the end of the 2nd set, Much Obliged with another special jam into an inspired Glory. also its an april fools day show, this shit is fire, divisions with jake on vocals needs to be relived again one of these days. Met some awesome folks though and look forward to more UM every chance I get.
If you're heading east expect a soaking rain event Sunday, followed by subzero readings over New England next week as the same brutal airmass pushes east. In today's edition of Climate Matters we track violent storms slamming into the British Isles, record warmth for southern California, air stagnation in the Bay area (where the dry, sunny rut continues) and glaze ice headaches for much of Lower Michigan in the wake of last weekend's "Solstice Storm". Old Man Winter is (temporarily) tiring of flinging subzero airmasses south of the Canadian border. The WHO recommends exposure of no more than 25 over a 24-hour period for particles smaller than 2.5 microns in diameter that are more dangerous than other particulate matter. Kennedy, NOAA’s deputy under secretary for operations, during a press briefing today at the American Geophysical Union annual meeting in San Francisco.
Expect a Eureka Moment today & Friday as temperatures soar into the mid-30s(! Soaking rains are likely along the eastern seaboard by Sunday, followed by one of the coldest outbreaks of winter for the northern third of the USA next week. The 84-hour NAM model from NOAA shows a plowable snowfall downwind of Lakes Erie and Ontario, with heavy snow for northern New England and upstate Maine; otherwise the map shows a lack of major snowfall into the weekend. A brief respite is likely into Saturday across the northern tier of the USA; 3 pm temperatures showing readings above freezing south of a line from Hartford to Wilkes Barre, South Bend, the Twi Cities and Bismarck. A Fleeting Temperature Break - Then Arctic Reality Sets In. After enjoying a thaw Friday and again Saturday temperatures drop as much as 40-45 degrees Sunday into Monday morning. Tourists wear protective masks while walking at the Bund under heavy haze in Shanghail, China, Thursday, Dec. Shanghai warned children, the elderly and people suffering from heart or lung disease to stay indoors as smog engulfed the city Bimby: Your Own Personal Robotic Kitchen Helper. “But the relatively cool year in some parts of the Arctic does little to offset the long-term trend of the last 30 years: the Arctic is warming rapidly, becoming greener and experiencing a variety of changes, affecting people, the physical environment, and marine and land ecosystems Reframing Climate Change: A Public Health-Based Climate Change Framework.
We live and lose it over and over again Bearing the scars from reaching for the stars through love’s Window pain… Got the same love deep down inside Feel the same ebb and flow of the tide We do… You’re right everything’s wrong It’s that old party line and that same tired song If I had a cent for every dollar they’ve spent on themselves I’d get us all out of debt & put the bank-ledgers back on the shelves Well, the old boys in power had just about counted him out And in most of their minds the outcome was hardly in doubt But – lo and behold – when all of the casting was done He’d been voted in by a majority – good lord he had won And from that day forth whenever people complained Whenever scandal-clouds broke and heavy fallout rained Each time his party seemed posed for an imminent fall He’d face his constituents and explain to them all…
Love’s window pain You crack your whip now, I bite my lip now it’s the SAME OLD THING Livin’ past glories – stretchin’ the sto-o-o-ries – it’s the SAME OLD THING Why do we do it? if I asked you now – now now – would you Would you live it all again… Break No spirits aching – no black and blue No hearts breaking let’s just say that we’re through Cause we’re both thinkin’ what new lovers do Your engine’s revved now – and so is mine Cancel the flowers, no valentines Head anywhere where the sun really shines Your special friend has already showed You made your choice at the fork in the road The gravel’s flying – time to lighten my load You don’t want me and I don’t love you Who’s turn is it now to… We’re too wrapped up in what new lovers do You don’t want me and I don’t love you Who’s turn is it now to… We’ve both been thinkin what new lovers do Both busy thinking what new lovers do But, say, let’s keep in touch like old lovers do…(Huh? we do have a lot in common Feel the same joy feel the same pain Goin in circles again and again We do… You’re wrong everything’s right The future looks prosperous rosey and bright Things have never been better and we did it together my friends And they lived un-happily ever after cause this isn’t just a song It’s the truth – and that’s how it ends Written by Robbie Smith I went in search of freedom just found a larger cage I followed doves of peace ’til they flew into a rage I dulled my common senses to not notice what was real And I placed my youthful future upon a roulette wheel I played my cards of truth against a pack of lies They dealt the hand I clutched – every loser always tries The fear that once protected me prevented me from flyin’ And when I looked at Lady Luck – her eyes were in decline Fate Fate let me make just one more stand Before I heed your call Fate Fate deal me one more winning hand One more… I fall (before I fall) In what was once my home I found him in my place Not very much had changed – just the joker’s face Another voice had spoken the vows I’d planned to make Another hand was strumming – trying not to make mistakes Too many sad reminders of those sullied broken vows Too many reasons why I know I shouldn’t be there now Don’t waste your life a-reasoning with dogs that have gone mad And women left reliving the love they thought they had. I fall The friendships I once valued have silently gone cold I carry guilt around me like deathly desert gold Seems all my limitations together have been reached And the walls for my protection are bracing to be breached A gambler’s life in shambles I make my swift retreat I forage now in dumpsters for songs still incomplete But Fate your writing’s clearer now and to it I resign And I bequeath to you now all that once…
An odd year, but then again Minnesota's weather is rarely average. California is experiencing the driest year in state history - it's unusual to be tracking wildfires in late December (when storms should be sweeping in off the Pacific). Shanghai warned children and the elderly to stay indoors as smog enveloped China’s commercial hub, sending levels of the worst pollutants surging to more than 15 times World Health Organization guidelines. Yet there continued to be regional extremes, including record low May snow cover in Eurasia and record high summer temperatures in Alaska.
I don't see any big storms brewing close to home between now and the end of next week - good news for New Year's travel plans. The level of PM2.5 pollutants reached 395.7 micrograms per cubic meter at 3 p.m., the city’s environmental monitoring center said. “The Arctic caught a bit of a break in 2013 from the recent string of record-breaking warmth and ice melt of the last decade,” said David M.
We live and lose it over and over again Bearing the scars from reaching for the stars through life’s Window pain… if I asked you now right now now would you Would you live it all again… Your mind it’s off in some other space My mind has already ditched this place How long has it been since our last embrace? Break We had our moments we shared some fun But we both know it’s time to cut and run No sense in doin’ what we’ve already done We sensed it coming we already knew We squeezed the dream but it wouldn’t come true Saw thru each other saw what new lovers do I can’t you know I can’t re-train my brain No marriage counselor could stand the strain The future’s callin’ us like some distant train We’ve reached a point now of no return If we keep driving now we’ll crash and we’ll burn Our friends can stop saying “you’ll never learn” You’ll never learn I think we’ve learned (pause then extra bar drum build-up) You don’t want me and I don’t love you Who’s turn is it now to… ) Written by Robbie Smith Somewhere far are the stars beyond all measure Further yet are the secrets of forever In the distance are the rainbows you might follow Somewhere near I’m just here – here to love you Somewhere far are the questions that you ponder Amid the misty dreamscapes that you wander But then dreams aren’t fulfilling they’re just hollow Somewhere near I’m just here – here to love you Somewhere far are the mysteries of the ages And the wisdom and the teachings of the sages Somewhere far – the pages of tomorrow Somewhere near I’m just here – here to love you Somewhere far are the highest of the mountains And life-renewing legendary fountains; Mighty empires that rise and fall and crumble Somewhere near I’m just here – here to love you Somewhere far…the universal splendor Where celestial bodies dance and then surrender Where satellites and suns and planets tumble Somewhere near I’m just here – here to love you As we get older we have less and less Fewer dreams we’re living for But I’m still holding on to one I confess… Neath the same moon neath the same sky Feel the same sun that shines in our eyes We do… Fate Fate let me make just one more stand Before I heed your call Fate Fate deal me one more… was mine Written by Robbie Smith and Anne Smith He wrote a tune and played it for the river The silver wavelets gleaming in the sun The gentle melody drifted o’er the waters Where the green hued slender salmon run She wrote a poem and read it to the forest The lacey branches swaying in the air Her simple rhyming drifted through the treetops To the music made by the singing sparrows there And a song came together of the forest and the sky Of the earth and the changing sea A song of the love of living on this world The way love is meant to be They wrote a song and sang it to the mountains The snowy summits glowing from afar Of loving, sighing, drifting into morning And a baby born by the light of a star And a song had come together of the forest and the sky Of the earth and the changing sea A song of a life of loving on this world The way life is meant to be Written by Robert S.
