    Quotes You Love

    lol I can't remember all the quotes I have posted, and my quote book seems to have been packed up as part of the moving process. So forgive me for any repeats! Civil government, so far as it is instituted for the security of property, is in reality instituted for the defense of the rich against the poor, or of those who have some property against those who have none at all. -Adam Smith, Wealth of Nations (1776) The rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion. – Adam Smith, Wealth of Nations (1776) I believe Gandhi is the only person who knew about real democracy — not democracy as the right to go and buy what you want, but democracy as the responsibility to be accountable to everyone around you. Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred. To me, those are the real freedoms on the basis of which good human societies are based. -Vandana Shiva As usual, in every scheme that worsens the position of the poor, it is the poor who are invoked as beneficiaries. -Vandana Shiva I believe that there will be ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those who do the oppressing. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice and equality for everyone and those who want to continue the system of exploitation. I believe that there will be that kind of clash, but I don't think it will be based on the color of the skin. -Malcolm X, January 1965 Speech (1 month before his murder)

    I could not possibly have anticipated how freaky this video would be lol: Here's a bit more normalcy lol (the best songs on any album are almost never the singles)

    Let's see..... my wife is in the white jacket. My best man is the one who turned around and said "Fresh tracks, bro! Ya'll gonna get some pow today?" lol He's the one who lives in Shasta, so we all stayed with him.... makes a big difference cost-wise when you can stay for free! His long-term girlfriend is in the turquoise jacket, she went to college with us. The other guy, with the black and red jacket, is our roommate from college..... I am an online ordained minister, and performed his wedding last year in Costa Rica, but his wife wasn't down for skiing lol. Black and red jacket guy, his birthday is March 18th, and mine is March 20th, so we decided to make it a dual-birthday-trip..... all 3 couples met up in Tahoe for 1 day of skiing and a concert, then all headed to Shasta to chill and ski for the week.

    Necro warning!!!! I am reviving an old thread...... so be cautious!!! lol This past week I had the extreme pleasure of visiting both Tahoe and Shasta Mountain in Northern California..... very fun!!! The wife had never been skiing, and I hadn't been in over 10 years, so we were both pretty much at square 1 lol. Here is some video of the view from near the top of Emigrant Peak (you can tell it's windy!), with Lake Tahoe in the background: While we were in Shasta, we got ~12 inches of snow overnight. Really made for amazing skiing! Here are some pictures from before and after the snow:

    Thanks for the B-day wishes, @Wicked Wulf !!! It was a blast! Wife and I took a lesson at Squaw Valley, then went and saw String Cheese at the Crystal Bay Club/Casino in Lake Tahoe.... it was amazing!! Great set list, great venue (much smaller than they normally play), great gambling afterward lol Cheese was on fire..... high-energy, dope show. Got a Colorado Bluebird Sky to close the first set.... then the second set went off, with Dirk, Restless Wind, Close Your Eyes, Rollover, and the encore was a nearly-10-minute-long cover of Naive Melody..... AMAZING! And of course, Uncle Cid showed up, and the whole thing went off the chain lol Here's Restless Wind (but from a different show).... this video also shows Michael Kang's versatility, as he plays mandolin, fiddle, and electric guitar in this song: Here's a video from the show.... not the greatest quality, but you can get a feel for the venue.... it's a bit trance-y at first, but the energy really picks up toward the end!

    Oh for sure..... my wife is a habitual pees-a-bit-when-she-laughs-real-hard type of chick lol Of course, typically not the amount that it appeared Fergie let out lol Shannon Hoon once intentionally peed on the stage and crowd lol The fact that she peed herself on stage really has nothing to do with why I don't think she's hot...... it's just fun to mention it lol Nah, something about her face puts me off..... I dunno if it's too wide, or too much surgery, or what.... just not crazy about it. But she's not ugly by any means..... just not my type.

    I think it's a Yonder Mountain day....... I was there at All Good, on Marvin's Mountain, for this Crazy Train....... it was about 4:20AM (imagine that?), and it was NUTS! If you see a dude holding up a neon green trident, that's me! lol This performance blew our minds....... But if you ain't got none, and if I ain't got none, we'll just go find some other head. Find out what they're holding, get down and start rolling, and smoke what they're holding instead!!!

    lol Fun fact..... they were writing a song called $ex on the Beach, and the Swedish producers they were working with kept mis-translating it, and calling it Cake by the Ocean (on the beach = by the ocean.... not sure how $ex = Cake lol, maybe the Swedish words are similar?). The band thought that was pretty freakin funny, and decided to go with it.
