Excellent, a music thread! One of my favorite guitarists of all time,
the mystical notes of Steve Hackett with Spectral Mornings and
Sierra Quemada.

David McGown from the Center for an Informed America would like to
present to you the first in a long series of essays called Wagging the
Moondoggie.


tgII invites you to participate in this series of essays and to make your
reading pleasure more intensely rewarding, he has linked a few of his
favorite hits from the past corresponding to that very weird surreal
period of time in our collective memory when we all flicked on the
television and watched men land a foil rapped contraption that looked
more like a Christmas present on the moon.

And now, without further delay, let the music begin and your reading
commence:




Wagging the Moondoggie, Part I
October 1, 2009
by David McGowan

“It is commonly believed that man will fly directly from the earth to the moon, but to do this, we would require a vehicle of such gigantic proportions that it would prove an economic impossibility. It would have to develop sufficient speed to penetrate the atmosphere and overcome the earth’s gravity and, having traveled all the way to the moon, it must still have enough fuel to land safely and make the return trip to earth. Furthermore, in order to give the expedition a margin of safety, we would not use one ship alone, but a minimum of three … each rocket ship would be taller than New York’s Empire State Building [almost ¼ mile high] and weigh about ten times the tonnage of the Queen Mary, or some 800,000 tons.”

Wernher von Braun, the father of the Apollo space program, writing in Conquest of the Moon

I can see all of you scratching your heads out there and I know exactly what it is that you are thinking: “Why the hell are we taking this detour to the Moon? What happened to Laurel Canyon? Have you completely lost your mind?”

*Sigh*

It all began a few months ago, when I became very busy at my day job as well as with family drama and with what turned out to be a very time-consuming side project, all of which made it increasingly difficult for me to carve out chunks of time to work on the remaining chapters in the series. Over the next two months or so, I pretty much lost all momentum and soon found it hard to motivate myself to write even when I could find the time.

That happens sometimes. Though it sounds rather cliché, ‘writer’s block’ is a very real phenomenon. There are many times when I can sit down at the keyboard and the words flow out of my head faster than I can get them down on the page. But there are also times when producing just one halfway decent sentence seems a near impossible task. This was one of those times. http://davesweb.cnchost.com/Apollo1.html



Of all of Dave McGowan's readers the world over, tgII was the only reader
of Dave's essays who correctly guessed who Dave McGowan was when he
was ten years-old from a picture taken when he was in elementary school.

U know the cure many writers from the past used to counter "writers block"
Open another bottle , sniff some more powder or seek the sanctuary of the velvet glove
Chemical ingestion or sexual ejaculation

That st vitus sounds like early black sabbath

Thanks for that, Flames, very nice.

Don't know why, but Jack Rose sparked memories of Harry Chapin.

Very introspective music - i like much, different music hits so many different areas of the emotives , ive never heard of 10 years after, thought id sought out most of the 60s 70s stuff
can see the harrison genes right there, striking m good tune too, bits of it reminded me of broken dream for some reason
