We did make it to the KPC zen center yesterday. Which of course just served to make me realize how un-zen I am living my life right now. Catty? Check. Holding on to petty resentments? Check. Letting little things get to me? Check.

But in happy news, I cooked dinner! I don't know if baking the tilapia (in a slight amount of oil and a possibly generous amount of butter) is worse for you than going ahead and sauteeing it up in a pan with a pat of butter, but I could make three at the same time and that's what is important. It tasted the same as the frying pan method.

I need to go to the office supply store and get:
1. a binder and sheet protectors for storing loose recipes
2. an alphabetical accordion folder for lyrics & tabs

I need a new bass amp.

And here is my big exciting news for the day: I have to go to Reno, NV in less than 4 weeks for the Wild West vet conference. Um, yay?

I have a big bass amp for my Rhodes piano. Makes for a fat, rich left hand.

On The Simsons last night Bart became a drummer. Phil Collins jokes were made! I thought of you.

Not Dualistic

Three Zen students came out of a Dharma talk.

"What did you think of Roshi's talk today?" one of them asked. "When he talked about true and false practice, I thought that was kind of dualistic, wasn't it?"

"Ah," said the second, "but your even saying that is dualistic itself, don't you see?"

"Look who's talking," said the third. "I'm glad I'm not dualistic like you guys!"

I came here because you know more about Genesis than anyone else I am aware of. Why does Carpet Crawlers share a common melody ( albeit pitched a little higher ) with the middle of The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway ( ~2:35 - 3:15 )? Are both from the same album? Is the pattern a reference to a third separate piece of music?

Carpet Crawlers is indeed from the Lamb Lies Down on Broadway album. If that particular section is repeated anywhere else on the album, I'm not sure! But many bits of the Lamb are melodies and riffs that the group had been carrying around and working on since the early 70s, so for example Lilywhite Lilith is something you can hear as a completely different song in really old concert bootlegs.

If you're not listening to the whole double album together you should give it a try! :)

Hello! Thank you!

Unfortunately I only have these songs on "Platinum", the three CD set, but I will keep my eyes open for the double. Platinum is a great compilaton, but I only ever really listen to the last CD.

You're absolutely welcome!

As someone who owns two copies of the Platinum collection... :) (one for home and one for work) I completely agree. I listen to all three discs but I think 2 is the most listened to. Since the Lamb is a concept album, it's really good to experience the whole thing, even though it really doesn't make a whole lot of sense. If you want, I'll find a cheap used copy and send it to you. I'd be happy to.
