Knock – Knock: Daves Not Here!

Hey.. How’s it going? My name’s Dave… Uh.. .hehe.. “Daves not here” hehe..  Yeah yeah…’

It’s a cheech and chong joke that I been hearing for years.  “Dave’s not here” hehe…

And your right… I ain’t been here for a bit… I like to take a hiatus from posting on this blog… Just because I own it and I can post as little or as much as I want… You know?

What does that have to do with “Dave’s not here”? Nothing…. Check out more »

The Flintstones Theme Song

I like theme song’s for  TV show’s. They are  well written and very catchy. One of my fave’s is the song for The Flintstones.

I just like The Flintstone’s. Even the one with the silly alien that came to be their friend. The Great Gazoo  was his name… I think. He was always helping them out of trouble. Rather they wanted him to or not.

Anyways I was surfing the TV the other day and it happened to come on and I was checking out the theme song. I was following the the songs words.

Let’s ride with the family down the street.
thoo tha la da da la ca ta ta eet.

What? Uh I didn’t quite get that?

Throo tha la da da la ca ta ta eet.

It’s one of those song’s ya know?

I just can’t seem to make out the words. This has been an issue of mine my ENTIRE LIFE! Knowing a song well… But there is a lyric in it I just can’t make out…I’ll think about it for a minute. Then it goes away and I don’t think about it anymore.

Then I hear the song again!  I’m BACK.. What did he say?

Sure I could Google it. But what fun would that be?
(Heck) Couldn’t help myself. Wait, I found the original theme song.

Was Pink Floyd the Pioneers of Space Music?

I have always enjoyed “space sounding music… And I am guessing that Pink Floyd was the first to do it.. Or do it right… The first record…Piper at the gates of dawn is really a spacey sounding record… Campy too…

It was recorded at the same time as The Beatles Sgt Peppers lonely hearts club band.  In my “hip opinion” it is a better record.

So the space music? Well listen to it… The opening song Astronomy Domine is just about as spacey as it gets…Then right into Intersteller Overdrive… Come on!?!

I heard Roger Waters say one tome that “nobody invented space music” Well, I dunno… His first guitar player Syd was certainly one of the first right? That guy is kinna a trip…  A tortured genius…. But then Syd Barrett was on a whole other level…

Many people I have talked to over the years are into Pink Floyd.. The later stuff… I try to turn them on to the Barrett recordings but many consider it just too freaking “weird”  It is that…. WAY out… In SPACE….

Give it a listen sometime…With an open mind….
