Some reflections on the 3rd anniversary of moving to Colorado, as narrated by Jerry Garcia:

"Mountains seem to answer an increasing imaginative need in the West. More and more people are discovering a desire for them, and a powerful solace in them. At bottom, mountains, like all wildernesses, challenge our complacent conviction - so easy to lapse into - that the world has been made for humans by humans. Most of us exist for most of the time in worlds which are humanly arranged, themed and controlled. One forgets that there are environments which do not respond to the flick of a switch or the twist of a dial, and which have their own rhythms and orders of existence. Mountains correct this amnesia. By speaking of greater forces than we can possibly invoke, and by confronting us with greater spans of time than we can possibly envisage, mountains refute our excessive trust in the man-made. They pose profound questions about our durability and the importance of our schemes. They induce, I suppose, a modesty in us."

LOVE this song!



And for the record, the only jacket I brought with me on my first 14er was cotton and was purchased at Goodwill. 8)

Here's something new from the electronic genre: Ultraista - Smalltalk
Amazing first album (dropped late 2012) from a trio that includes Radiohead's producer. Yes, you can obviously hear the Radiohead influence but it's Laura's vocals that steal the show.

Ha! I remember buying that No Alternative album back in the day for that Pumpkins song, and for the hidden Nirvana track. There's a few other good ones on that compilation as well.
