haha, no just on this Cohen trip. By the way, this guy in office gave me this movie called, Stoned, the life of Brian Jones. Supposed to be damn cool.

No he is pretty good. His songs make up for his voice.

Nooo way! I have been dying to see that movie man. Also try "Gimme Shelter", the movie on the Stones' 1969 US tour. It has that infamous Meredith Hunter stabbing scene which took place at Altamont free concert. Probably the best rock documentary ever along with "Dont Look Back".

inexile: Pennyroyal Tea! I need to taste some.

whitelight: He's the singer that really doesn't matter, and on the other hand, he does so much. His songs are very powerful. The words are bitter, the music of an old fashion time.

Dude will see it and let you know how it is, i'm told its bloody cool. Gimme Shelter is the next he'll give me. Who doesn't know Altamont man! Hell's Angel, just born in the wrong world on a wrong time! Just a shot away!

whitelight: you're right (rhymes, strangely). how the Stones killed the day.

Carmalin: You haven't explained.

CC: Yes. Neruda's on the way. Neruda is there already, and then I have to study him for the final year, so it gets better.
