A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

@Trouble: You did hand stamping? How were the kids when you did it? Most kids I dealt with didn’t want that stamp anywhere near them.
Avatar Thu. 5/4/17 9:44am Trouble:

@ jake gould: kids meaning teens? or little ones: lil ones want it all over the place. nobody refused. but then i didn't ask if they wanted it. i told them
  Thu. 5/4/17 9:46am JakeGould:

@Trouble: Interesting. Not teens but little kids. More than few had no desire to get stamped. The teens were just judgey as they should be.

Avatar Thu. 5/4/17 10:12am Fernando M Pacheco:

Hello Trouble and everybody.
Got some Belchior for us? Im still sad by his passing last sunday. His recordings from the 70s are great and Elis Regina also recorded some of his best known songs like Mucuripe, Como Nossos Pais and Roupa Velha Colorida. RIP Belchior
  Thu. 5/4/17 10:12am sugarwolf:

Oh I just offered to stamp little kids. They were more into it than some of the adults. Maybe next year at the ticket booth they should tell people "here is your ticket, you will give it to the people over there and they will stamp you" some people seemed so confused.

Yes, Japanese

We only had one dude make a fuss about turning in the 3 day pass.
  Thu. 5/4/17 10:13am JakeGould:

@sugarwolf: People be people. Some just won’t get it. Maybe there should just be a sign that reads, “Get Your Cool Stamp Here!”
Avatar Thu. 5/4/17 10:13am northguineahills:

So, Alice Coltrane also went by Turiyasangitananda? Didn't she also go by Satchidananda?
Avatar Thu. 5/4/17 10:14am bobdoesthings:

is this song a specific Vedic mantra or from the Upanishads or something? anyone hip to that stuff?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/4/17 10:15am AndrewC.:

She was Turiya Alice Coltrane on the record she made with Carlos Santana.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/4/17 10:16am AndrewC.:

Satchidananda was her guru I think?
Avatar Thu. 5/4/17 10:17am Trouble:

@sugarwolf: yeah, we had several of those people making a fuss about the pass.

At risk of starting TROUBLE, this just in: under Ryancare your employer could cap your healthcare benefits by choosing the standards of a "waiver state" with limits.
