Times They Are A Changing

154.365

Come gather ’round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’
Or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’.

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won’t come again
And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s still in spin
And there’s no tellin’ who
That it’s namin’.
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin’.

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside ragin’.
It’ll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’.

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don’t criticize
What you can’t understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin’.
Please get out of the new one
If you can’t lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin’.

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin’.
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin’.

Michelle

153.365


Michelle, ma belle.
These are words that go together well,
My Michelle.

Michelle, ma belle.
Sont les mots qui vont tres bien ensemble,
Tres bien ensemble.

I love you, I love you, I love you.
That’s all I want to say.
Until I find a way
I will say the only words I know that
You’ll understand.

I need you, I need you, I need you.
I need to make you see,
Oh, what you mean to me.
Until I do I’m hoping you will
Know what I mean.

I love you.

I want you, I want you, I want you.
I think you know by now
I’ll get to you somehow.
Until I do I’m telling you so
You’ll understand.

I will say the only words I know that
You’ll understand, my Michelle.

lyrics by The Beatles

from a slide taken back in 1985! taken at the Tucson zoo…which i have not been to since 1985!  i find zoo’s an awful place..how would a human do living caged and exhibited 24/7?

Doctor Robert

152.365

Ring my friend, I said you call Doctor Robert
Day or night he’ll be there any time at all, Doctor Robert
Doctor Robert, you’re a new and better man,
He helps you to understand
He does everything he can, Doctor Robert

If you’re down he’ll pick you up, Doctor Robert
Take a drink from his special cup, Doctor Robert
Doctor Robert, he’s a man you must believe,
Helping everyone in need
No one can succeed like Doctor Robert

Well, well, well, you’re feeling fine
Well, well, well, he’ll make you … Doctor Robert

My friend works for the national health, Doctor Robert
Don’t pay money just to see yourself with Doctor Robert
Doctor Robert, you’re a new and better man,
He helps you to understand
He does everything he can, Doctor Robert

Well, well, well, you’re feeling fine
Well, well, well, he’ll make you … Doctor Robert

lyrics by The Beatles

this was taken several years ago for a Pediatric Orthopedic surgeon doing a scoliosis spinal surgery on a teenage girl.  the surgery was a success…however…three months later she became pregnant!

Only A Northern Song

151.365


If you’re listening to this song
You may think the chords are going wrong
But they’re not;
He just wrote it like that.
It doesn’t really matter what chords I play
What words I say or time of day it is
As it’s only a Northern song
It doesn’t really matter what clothes I wear
Or how I fare or if my hair is brown
When it’s only a Northern song.
When you’re listening late at night
You may think the band are not quite right
But they are, they just play it like that
It doesn’t really matter what chords I play
What words I say or time of day it is
As it’s only a Northern song.
It doesn’t really matter what clothes I wear
Or how I fare or if my hair is brown
When it’s only a Northern song.
If you think the harmony
Is a little dark and out of key
You’re correct, there’s nobody there.
It doesn’t really matter what chords I play
What words I say or time of day it is
And I told you there’s no one there.

lyrics by The Beatles

What Do You Want From Life

150.365

What do you want from life
To kidnap an heiress
Or threaten her with a knife
What do you want from life
To get cable tv
And watch it every night

There you sit
A lump in your chair
Where do you sleep
And what do you wear
When you’re sleeping

What do you want from life
An indian guru
To show you the inner light
What do you want from life
A meaningless love affair
With a girl that you met tonight

How can you tell when you’re doin’ alright
Does your bank account swell
While you’re dreaming at night
How do know when you’re really in love
Do violins play when you’re touching the one
That you’re loving

What do you want from life
Someone to love
And somebody that you can trust
What do you want from life
To try and be happy
While you do the nasty things
You must

Well, you can’t have that, but if you’re an american citizen you are entitled to:
A heated kidney shaped pool,
A microwave oven–don’t watch the food cook,
A dyna-gym–I’ll personally demonstrate it in the privacy of your own home,
A kingsize titanic unsinkable molly brown waterbed with polybendum,
A foolproof plan and an airtight alibi,
Real simulated indian jewelry,
A gucci shoetree,
A year’s supply of antibiotics,
A personally autographed picture of randy mantooth
And bob dylan’s new unlisted phone number,
A beautifully restored 3rd reich swizzle stick,
Rosemary’s baby,
A dream date in kneepads with paul williams,
A new matador,
A new mastadon,
A maverick,
A mustang,
A montego,
A merc montclair,
A mark iv,
A meteor,
A mercedes,
An mg,
Or a malibu,
A mort moriarty,
A maserati,
A mac truck,
A mazda,
A new monza,
Or a moped,
A winnebago–hell, a herd of winnebago’s we’re giving ’em away,
Or how about a mcculloch chainsaw,
A las vegas wedding,
A mexican divorce,
A solid gold kama sutra coffee pot,
Or a baby’s arm holding an apple?

lyrics by The Tubes

i used to love The Tubes back in the late 70′s…this particular song was my fave!  what does make one happy? the last line is a crack up..who’d a thunk that in todays world people would wait over twelve hours to get the new “iphone”4g (apple) in their hands!

I Should Have Known Better

149.365

I should have known better with a girl like you, that I
Would love everything that you do; and I do, hey, hey, hey, and I do.
Whoa, oh, I never realized what a kiss could be, this could
Only happen to me; can’t you see, can’t you see,
That when I tell you that I love you, oh, you’re gonna say
You love me too, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, oh,
And when I ask you to be mine, you’re gonna say you love me
Too. You love me too, you love me too.

another from my study of form/body as vessels….lyrics by The Beatles.

Hold Me Tight

148.365

It feels so right now, hold me tight,
Tell me I’m the only one,
And then I might,
Never be the lonely one.
So hold me tight, to-night, to-night,
It’s you,
You you you – oo-oo – oo-oo.
Hold me tight,
Let me go on loving you,
To-night to-night,
Making love to only you,
So hold me tight, to-night, to-night,
It’s you,
You you you – oo-oo – oo-oo.
Don’t know what it means to hold you tight,
Being here alone tonight with you,
It feels so right now, feels so right now.
Hold me tight,
Tell me I’m the only one,
And then I might,
Never be the only one,
So hold me tight, to-night, to-night,
It’s you,
You you you – oo-oo – oo-oo.
Don’t know what it means to hold you tight,
Being here alone tonight with you,
It feels so right now, feels so right now.
Hold me tight,
Let me go on loving you,
To-night, to-night,
Making love to only you,
So hold me tight, to-night, to-night,
It’s you,
You you you – oo-oo – oo-oo.

lyrics by The Beatles

my inspiration for this shoot came from my perception of our bodies as vessels…we have NO control over what we look like or how we utilize this precious human life at birth. we are NOT our bodies and we are not what you “see”.  we are many things and nothing…we may think we know who we are but is it truth, perception, ignorance in our understanding or holding onto this attachment of a body to feel “real”?

Helter Skelter

146.365


When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
Till I get to the bottom and I see you again.

Do you, don’t you want me to love you
I’m coming down fast but I’m miles above you
Tell me tell me tell me come on tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain’t no dancer.

Helter skelter helter skelter
Helter skelter.

Will you, won’t you want me to make you
I’m coming down fast but don’t let me break you
Tell me tell me tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain’t no dancer.

Look out helter skelter helter skelter
Helter skelter

Look out, cause here she comes.

When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
And I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
And I get to the bottom and I see you again

Well do you, don’t you want me to make you
I’m coming down fast but don’t let me break you
Tell me tell me tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain’t no dancer.

Look out helter skelter helter skelter
Helter skelter
Look out helter skelter
She’s coming down fast
Yes she is
Yes she is.

lyrics by The Beatles

this was taken by the UA…constant construction site!  this reminds me of how our city is always expanding and destroying countless sentient beings (insects, birds,lizards..) in its haste. mother nature does not seem to get a break..when does progress equate to cultural richness and not gentrification?  even with all our economic cut-backs to our public schools (nine schools closed this year) the UA tuition goes up, many cut-backs to programs…Arizona is ranked 49th out of 50 states in funding for education! this is NO joke!

is this progress?
