Mountain Mama Twisted

Hi there … and welcome to Mountain Mama’s Earth Music … home grown and twisted

1) Twisted, The Wood Brothers 4:09

Manzanita by Gary Snyder

Before dawn the coyotes
weave medicine songs
dream nets -- spirit baskets --
milky way music
they cook young girls with
to be woman;
or the whirling dance of
striped boys --

At moon-set the pines are gold-purple
Just before sunrise.

The dog hastens into the undergrowth
Comes back panting
Huge, on the small dry flowers.

A woodpecker
Drums and echoes
Across the still meadow

One man draws, and releases an arrow
Humming, flat,
Misses a gray stump, and splitting
A smooth red twisty manzanita bough.

Manzanita the tips in fruit,
Clusters of hard green berries
The longer you look
The bigger they seem,

`little apples'

2) Little Plastic Castle, Ani DeFranco 4:03
3) The Piano Has Been Drinking, Dan Hicks 3:30

Barbie, Her Identity as an Extraterrestrial Finally
Suspected, Bravely Battles the Interrogation of
the Pentagon Task Force Who's Captured Her
By Denise Duhamel

Don't bother looking for my belly button, boys--

Next Speakeasy: Save Explorit

The Feb. 24 edition of "Speakeasy" features Peter Willson and Keith Banks of the Explorit Science Center discussing the Save Explorit campaign. Due to a "perfect storm" of real estate values plummeting and donations falling, our community's science center finds itself in the unfortunate state of needing to raise $600,000 before Aug. 1. The interview details what's happening with the campaign and highlights some of Explorit's progams and community partnerships. This was taped in the studio for DCTV, with audio supplied for the KDRT show.

False sense of sober security

complete opposite from last week's aggression, this show lures you into a heavy, false sense of the name of love.

A Supermarket in California by Allen Ginsberg

What thoughts I have of you tonight, Walt Whitman, for I walked
down the sidestreets under the trees with a headache self-conscious looking at the full moon.
In my hungry fatigue, and shopping for images, I went into the neon
fruit supermarket, dreaming of your enumerations!
What peaches and what penumbras! Whole families shopping at
night! Aisles full of husbands! Wives in the avocados, babies in the tomatoes!
--and you, García Lorca, what were you doing down by the watermelons?

I saw you, Walt Whitman, childless, lonely old grubber, poking
among the meats in the refrigerator and eyeing the grocery boys.
I heard you asking questions of each: Who killed the pork chops?
What price bananas? Are you my Angel?
I wandered in and out of the brilliant stacks of cans following you,
and followed in my imagination by the store detective.

Something New Under the Sun by Steve Scafidi
It would have to shine. And burn. And be
a sign of something infinite and turn things
and people nearby into their wilder selves
and be dangerous to the ordinary nature of
signs and glow like a tiny hole in space

to which a god presses his eye and stares.
Or her eye. Some divine impossible stretch
of the imagination where you and I are one.
It would have to be something Martin Buber
would say and, seeing it, point and rejoice.

It could be the mouth of a Coca-Cola bottle
or two snakes rolling down a mountain trail.
It would have to leap up out of the darkness
of a theater and sing the high silky operatic
note of someone in love. And run naked

slender fingers through the hair of a stranger,
or your mother or father, or grandfather, or
a grassy hill in West Virginia. It would live
on berries and moss like a deer and roam

The Golden Road Salutes Dr. Strangely Strange


Like Pigpen used to sing, "I asked my doctor, just what I had..." And what was the eternal answer? "All you need...all you really need is GOOD LOVE!" Well, that and some good healing vibes to the good Dr. Strangely Strange.

Ol' Doc Strange took a spill and will be on the mend for a spell. When he's ready, we'll get him back on the air here at The Dirt. In the meantime, this edition of The Golden Road is dedicated to him with all the bells, whistles and transportational sounds that you might expect from us crazy's down here at the station. We begin on Earth, and then sail off for another land in the distant galaxy.

Be well, Doc...see you on the flip side!
