Some of you witnessed Nola Roux whelp her 5 pups the Night, well the first Night of Hurricane Issac's fury here August 28 thru the morning of the 29th.


Far removed from 7 years ago to the day K struck, we saw Life spring forth in the Midst of Natures fury.

It was a quiet stillness amidst the roar of a Hurricane.



Surely the Universal Creator smiles on some,and brings calamity to others.


We welcomed the Spirit of Life and it calmed us to the Fray outside.

Here now are the fruit of that Night outside for the first time today.

Also Martha Jo's 6 week old lil ones as well.


Enjoy.

Good to find you back again.
I kinda figured Led Zeppelin was the best band ever but I liked Mick and Keith Richards as well. I don't worry how old these guys get. Can they still
"get it together?"
Sometimes.
It's just fine tonight here. K

'Celebration Day' movie shows re-formed Led Zeppelin still has it


By John J. Moser, Of The Morning Call
7:35 p.m. EDT, October 19, 2012

Watching Led Zeppelin play its first song in "Celebration Day," the new film of its 2007 reunion concert at London's 02 stadium, my initial reaction was to cringe.

Playing together publicly for the first time in 22 years, what was once the greatest rock band in the world looked startlingly older as it dove into "Good Times, Bad Times": Singer Robert Plant like The Wizard of Oz's Cowardly Lion, with a marcelled mane; guitar whiz Jimmy Page like a mad professor with a shock of white hair. The band sounded older, too: maybe more expressive, but certainly far less precise than in its prime.

But over the film's 2-hour-and-4-minute running time (a full two hours of which is concert footage; more about that later), something wonderful happens.

Over 16 songs, the band just gets better and better, until my reaction changed to "man, I wish these guys would tour again."


"Celebration Day," which was screened in Philadelphia for two days this week as part of a 40-market world showing to promote its upcoming release in audio and video formats, captures Led Zeppelin's lightning-in-a-bottle performance not only as a historical document, but as evidence it still literally could be the world's greatest band.

It's nothing short of amazing that Plant, Page, bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones and drummer Jason Bonham, filling in for his late father, John, could have pulled off such a performance after just two lackluster shows (at 1985's Live Aid and 1988's Atlantic Records 40th anniversary) since breaking up in 1980.

If, indeed, as the band has said, it will not tour again, "Celebration Day" is a fine swan song for Led Zeppelin.

The concert film is just that: It captures the complete 16-song set list from the Dec. 10 concert that was presented in tribute to the late Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, shot entirely onstage with 14 cameras, and little else. It starts with a 3-minute historic introduction and there are a precious few fleeting shots of the audience. But that's it.

The more cinematic minded may find that stifling or even boring, but for the music fan it works: cutting all the fat from a concert that set a Guinness Book record for highest ticket demand. There are in-your-face (or the band members' faces) close-ups, and the quality is pristine.

The film's real strength is the music. While all of the songs are at least 36 years old (there are no cuts from albums after 1976's "Presence"), this is emphatically no oldies show.

Despite not having played together, Led Zeppelin clearly has evolved. Perhaps the band, its original members ages 64-68, is no longer the cocksure force it once was, but it's a force for sure, and incredibly tight.

Page remains a maestro — and inventive, as on "Trampled Under Foot," a song released in 1975 that still sounds fresh. "Nobody's Fault But Mine" should school generations of bands in subtlety.

The latter song is a turning point in the film. During it, there's a wonderful exchange of glances between Jones and Page — they know they're nailing the performance.

The concert includes the first public performance of "For Your Life" from "Presence," and it's one of those songs that lets you appreciate Led Zeppelin strictly for its music. There also are the obvious rockers ("Black Dog" comes out early) and sensitive songs such as "Ramble On" have the right feel.

But the best known songs got the best reaction from the crowd at the preview screening. For "No Quarter," the audience reacted as if it was at a concert, and with good reason: It captured Led Zeppelin's mystical air. And there was "The Song Remains the Same," "Misty Mountain Hop" and, of course, a nine-minute "Stairway to Heaven" for which the preview audience applauded.

Plant introduces "Dazed and Confused" by saying, "There are certain songs that have to be there, and this is one of them." The song stretches 12 minutes as Page uses a bow on his guitar strings.

That song and a couple of others contained some of the movie's few weak points. Zeppelin still can be indulgent, and some of the songs are overly long without needing to be. And oddly — don't know if it was the film or the theater — the sound was too low for the rock and roll experience it portrayed.

But the opening of "Kashmir," which closes the main set, actually drew squeals from the preview crowd, and Plant gave perhaps his best performance, with a loud, long scream.

The encore was, naturally, "Whole Lotta Love," then a second encore of "Rock and Roll," on which the theater audience sang along, and applauded at the end.

If that was the reaction to the movie "Celebration Day," imagine the reaction a live Led Zeppelin show would bring.

"Celebration Day" shows the band still could bring it. But until it does, the movie does just fine.

Her face is cracked from smiling, all the fears that she's been hiding,
And it seems pretty soon everybody's gonna know.
And her voice is sore from shouting, cheering winners who are losing,
And she worries if their days are few and soon they'll have to go.

*My, my, my, I'm so happy, I'm gonna join the band,
We are gonna dance and sing in celebration, We are in the promised land.

She hears them talk of new ways to protect the home she lives in,
Then she wonders what it's all about when they break down the door.

Her name is Brown or White or Black, you know her very well,
You hear her cries of mercy as the winners toll the bell.

* Chorus
There is a train that leaves the station heading for your destination,
But the price you pay to nowhere has increased a dollar more.
Yes, it has!
And if you walk you're gonna get there though it takes a little longer,
And when you see it in the distance you will wring your hands and moan

Baby, when you walk that sweet walk
Oh, you walk it good, yes you walk it good
Baby, when you talk that sweet talk
Oh, it sounds so good, oh so good

With a little bit of concentration
And a little bit of helpin' hands, yeah
And a little bit of raving madness
You know it makes me feel, baby
Both my feet are back on the ground

And when the rhythm takes me
It feels so good, oh so good
Baby if it keeps a-shaking
It will do you good, oh so much good

With a little bit of stop-a-shakin' shakin'
And a little bit of ?fly right down?
And a little bit of sweet con-carne
It makes me feel, makes me feel
I got my feet on the ground

Ooh now baby, when you move it makes me
Really feel so good, oh so good
And I'm so glad, so glad, so glad, so glad
And I'm good, oh, so good
With a little bit of concentration
And a little bit of helping hand
And a little bit of ?saving madness?
You know it makes me feel, baby
I'm back on the ground oh yes, sure does
It makes me feel back on the ground.

I'm feelin' good child!
Down on the ground.
Sha la la la...

Measuring a summer's day,
I only find it slips away to grey,
The hours, they bring me pain.

*Tangerine, Tangerine,
Living reflection from a dream;
I was her love, she was my queen,
And now a thousand years between.

Thinking how it used to be,
Does she still remember times like these?
To think of us again?
And I do.

* Chorus

Introducing "Sandy" performing at the Neutral Ground last night here in Uptown, New Orleans.

Shall We

Music/Lyrics: Sandy Chen

I don't know where to start
To find out your broken heart
I don't know what to say
To make you not go away

Sitting in the empty room
I feel my mind is seen through
You light up a cigarette
I don't know if you ever regret

Oh shall we talk
Or just walk away
Oh shall we listen
Or let it fall

You said that you've had enough
You're the one who tried so hard
Please take it easy on me
Coz I'm not the enemy

Oh shall we talk
Or just walk away
Oh shall we listen
Or just let it fall
Let it fall
Let it fall
Let it fall

Let it fall
Let it fall

Oh we should talk
And I'll say it's all my fault
Oh please don't talk
Coz my tears are gonna fall
Gonna fall

I don't know where to start
To find out my broken heart
I don't know what to say
Just to make you stay
