Vitalogy.....The marrying kind....

So today I thought
I would have some fun with Vitalogy...
this picture plate especially makes me laugh...
 A bit fuzzy - but it reads
"The woman who marries a man with physiognomy similar
to the above, the weak points in whose character are further described 
on page 184, is likely to have a life full of trouble and to rest in a 
premature grave.
Mothers caution your daughters."

What does Physiognomy mean?
Physiognomy (from the Gk. physis meaning "nature" and gnomon meaning "judge" or "interpreter") is the assessment of a person's character or personality from his outer appearance, especially the face. The term physiognomy can also refer to the general appearance of a person, object or terrain, without reference to its implied characteristics, as in the physiognomy of a plant community.
If you are dating, meet, or are married to 
someone who has
facial characteristics like the man above-
if you are a guy
who looks like that one...
you better go see a psychiatrist , 
get a nose job, 
or a serious makeover...
but according to the good doctor
you were just born a jerk!

Ha! This book continues to surprise me 
every time I turn a page! 

To go along with our theme today
here is Pearl Jam performing
an acoustic arrangement of 
at the Bridge School benefit 2010.
Take a listen....
it is a totally different arrangement of the song 
and I think you will be pleasantly surprised if you
have not heard this version.

Until next Saturday Vitalogy fans...
Have a Rockin' Day!

Photo Friday...Alice in Chains @ Isleta Ampitheatre

This Friday's photos
of Alice in Chains
fresh from the oven..
sent to me
by Frank Dolan...

He took these shots at the
Isleta Amphitheater
in Albuquerque, NM just a few days ago
on August 31st.

and before we go there....
I know AIC is a touchy subject for some...
If you agree or not about the decision to come back
years later
after Layne's passing...
I just want to say - this is about the fan experience.
NO one expects Layne to be replaced -
 he can't...
Frank said he had a great time - 
this was his first live AIC show...

 Mike Inez rockin' the hair and Jerry's new lack of .....

Frank also managed to come away with some nice

How cool is that?!

Frank has been following AIC for a long time. 
He thought that William DuVall was great and holds up with the band well. 
He said they put on an amazing show 
and Jerry was great 
to finally get to see play guitar live.

We're glad Frank had such an awesome experience!

I would just like to include a link to an interview Mike Inez
gave to The Columbian....
 and here is a bit from the interview about Layne's absence...
"I don't think there's closure, per se. That seems to me like the wrong word," Inez said. 
"You obviously move on and the world keeps spinning and the gigs keep coming and stuff like that, but sometimes, especially like on the tour bus late at night when there are no sounds going on and it's really silent, I start thinking about Layne and stuff like that, still to this day. And I don't ever want to stop thinking about Layne."

please read the whole article here

I personally think if you give the music
a chance - William is NOT trying to be Layne or imitate his
He and Jerry have found a way to harmonize 
and keep the same feel of Alice
You never hear William trying to copy Layne's nuance's.
When you hear him sing older Alice tunes I think
he is actually doing a beautiful tribute
to Layne in carrying the music on.

Frank also sent us this wonderful link
to a video he took of the
 band performing

 Thanks to Frank for sharing with us.
Alice in Chains is really making some great music again...
and Layne will forever be in our hearts and minds.
he is simply irreplaceable.

Why Not? Happy Birthday to the "Guru"

I usually don't
do the 
"Happy Birthday" stuff
but I thought today why the heck not?
Let's make it fun...

On this day back in
Rock n' Roll history

 Kim Thayil was born...
(taken from a crazy 90's comic and re-adjusted)

I have to admit
I have always loved Kim's sense of humor
very dry - and a lot of times
it seemed like interviewers had no idea when he
was being sarcastic because he pulled such a straight
face when doing it.
I'd watch the interviewer trying to figure where to go next
or actually trying to come back at him...
never realizing he was totally un-serious.
You'd finally see the smallest hint on his face
of satisfaction in knowing this person had NO idea
who they were really interviewing or why.
If you passed his test - then he really opened up.
Had a great vid to share and the damn thing won't load.
instead -
An old tune - recently played..
Slaves and Bulldozers
I love how it looks like it takes absolutely no effort from Kim....
So Happy Birthday Kim -
We're officially adding your
"mugshot" to the wall this week too!
Keep Rockin'...
