Hal R: Re Tzokay Tibetan chanting

The throat singers of Tuva do two tone singing.
The Tibetan monks do Tzokay style chanting, which accomplishes three tones.

Ok, so I don't watch many movies or watch tv, so I am kind of behind the times. Loved this movie using Beatle's songs. The way it starts out so innocent and too sweet and moves on to the turmoils of the later 60's is right on. And the trip with Dr. Roberts is quite a trip, wow. The guy driving Dr. Roberts bus looks like Kesey, anyone else notice that?

two tone singing

I've been to several concerts with Tibetan monks doing the two tone singing, it is amazing and seems to just get inside you in a very deep place.

Garcia

Hey now, Trish!!

Garcia film IS in the works!

the rights to two bios were legally obtained, (Captain Trips is one) and some may be surprised to learn, the dude Justin Berfield who used to playe Reese in in that schlock TV show Malcolm in the Middle is involved.. Jason Felts is another guy involved with the project, his dad was a deadhead...

MAYBE the movie will focus on Garcia's recovery from the diabetic coma, when he had to re-learn the guitar... according to rumours in LaLa land, the film will also include scenes of Garcia in the army and how he met Phil and the other members of the band...

about a year ago, a few top notch people got involved to produce this, Eric Eisner among others.

Hollywoodland is SLOW!!!! keep patient. I've seen unreleased copies of a treatment for this, should be good! who will play Garcia??? TOP SECET!!!

peace.

Gengis Blues

Oh My! I wanna see that one. Have been fascinated by that two tone singing in Mongolian folk music for a couple of years now, ever since a saw a group perform in Paris. Found it one of the most incredible things had seen in a while, and the music was soo peaceful-eastern yet familiar to western ears. One of the musicials told me that the sound of the music is inspired from nature-like horse's hoofbeats on the tundra, blowing wind, etc. Sorry, I digressed, but to see someone else mentioning that double tone singing was a great suprise!

Am looking out for that film now! That vid is just...wow!

Capitalism: A Love Story

Michael Moore's film about the origins of the current banking crisis and the movement of American workers to retake the rights previously afforded to them is excellent. It opens with Louis Louie playing as a gang of 5 rob a bank and goes through the life of families being evicted from their homes. The scene with the black sheriff of Wayne County (Detroit) declaring in a news conference that he is suspending all home evictions is poignant, as are Moore's revelations about big corporations buying life insurance policies on it's rank & file employees - it's called dead peasant insurance. Guess what? The corporations don't help out the poor workers survivors.

Bob & Phil need to see this movie. It exposes how the biggest campaign contrbutors to Barak Obama were the big banks, Goldman being the #1. I dare anybody to just let go of their preconceptions about Micael Moore and go see this movie. It'll make you mad as hell (and possibly ready to stick up for your rights).

after doing a little checking...

I see that Paul used to open for Jerry and Merl at the Keystone. Recorded an album with them called New Train that wasn't released until 2000. He opened for Bobby and Ratdog in 2001, and passed away in 2005 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

Genghis Blues

v/-LYc06l2gGo

It's been out 10 years but if you haven't seen Genghis Blues this Oscar- nominated film is the story of a blind blues musician and his triumphant trek to the forgotten land of Tuva and the mysterious art of Khoomei, or throat singing, a seemingly impossible form of singing that produces multiple vocal tone simultaneously. Paul Pena, who has played with the likes of Bonnie Raitt, T-Bone Walker, John Lee Hooker, Jerry Garcia, Muddy Waters, and BB King travels to Tuva to live among the descendants of Genghis Khan and compete in their triennial Khoomei contest. I loved this documentary, there's a picture of Jerry near the start, I wonder if Sirius has any of those tapes? Amazing story, beautiful film.
