blake's poem is indelibly united with the Fugs great song of his words. I cannot find it on the internets. god bless tuli kupferberg, wherever he may be.

I now have Paul Weller stuck in my head.

So for a great shot and a great song, you get a highlight.

Steve says:

Or at least you would if I could find the button.

Sorry.

swamprose says:

I am out of the highlight business. Let the new kids get them. but thank you, compliments always accepted.

and Paul Weller is nowhere near as good as the Fugs, if I could find them...

swamprose says:

viv, I have not gone private. have I? I read that if you don't want highlights, you just choose 'registered users' ..which means private?? well. I was just trying to get out of highlights...I don't need a closed blog for privacy. but I don't want highlights.

sRose, anything except completely public "anyone can see, comment, etc." is a private blog.

I'd have highlighted the top one also. As is, I faved it. Great shot. :)

swamprose says:

uh, caine. I get it.

and thanks b'elf. There are moonflowers in my neighbourhood. They remind me of you.

Great swamprose!!

I disagree about no HL.
Anybody should take a look at that gorgeous top one. The sense of the HL is: we share the beauty. Only that, but it is not a pelting thing (the beauty, I mean).

Wendle says:

Wow. So so gorgeous. I faved them both :)

These are so beautiful. Not often am I swayed by photographs of flowers. So abstract, and I like it.

swamprose says:

thanks all.
mara, you have a good point.
I need to think about this.

Sumptuous images. The second draws you into the interior of the flower.

Both beautiful and both faved

swamprose says:

minush--urca!!what does it mean? sounds great. is it like eureka?

hari--tuli is all over the net. he was old when I saw him, and he's still going. the fugs were the fathers of captain beefheart, the holy modal rounders etc...but all I want from them is ah, sunflower, weary of time...blakes's poem which they set to music. think I have to hit up some of the vinyl collections around here.

nige says:

glad you let this one out for the world to see.

mara says:

me too.

urca is wow or great but more funny, it's typical of north Italy, obsolete and onomatopoeic.

12th Sep 2009, 09:37

swamprose says:

mara, thanks. a lovely definition. I am going to keep urca to use myself now.
