Colleague John Borland writes today about Wolfgang's Vault, a website with thousands of rare live performance cuts from the 1960s and 1970s, man.

We're talking streaming media, and we're talking free to the people, man.

Jimi Hendrix, Janis, and so much more man.

Right now I am listening to a live cut from the Fillmore Auditorium of the Great Society- that was Grace and them before the Jefferson Airplane - singing "Somebody To Love."

Grace Slick is so, like graceful,man. Love is so far out, man.  

And you know what else is groovy? 

Broadband, man.

I mean if I were listening to this site over dial-up man, it would like pause and skip just like that sucky eight-track player I have in my van, man.

And that would be a bummer.

So wanna know what would be so far out, man? If we tell the people about this broadband. Even the word is so cool. Band- that's what we are talking about here,right, music, can ya dig it?

And the first part of the word broadband makes me think about that far-out Heather Aprilblossom, you know the chick that hangs out at the market, with the hair down to...

Or just about being broad-minded, which you know the man hates when we are like that.

Oh, almost forgot what we were talking about. 

Let's print up some posters, and tell everyone about Wolfgang's Vault and tell them they gotta get broadband like Internet and so they can listen and hear the whole sound without it skipping and stuff.

What were we talking about?

Sorry man- I drifted off again there for a second.

OH, YEA.. like making some posters and telling the people about broadband and about Wolfgang's Vault, man. Where the music is free, like it oughta be.

What's that you just said, dude?

"Blog it, man."

Cool man. Far out.

But first let me fire one up.

I mean the blog authoring tool, man. Gotta tell the people, man.

Why are you giggling, brother?

I said fire up the blogging tool, man! What did you think I meant?

"Hey don't be hostile, man."

"I hear ya. No, it's cool. Just got to tell the people..." we put this on the Internet and we'll for sure get a lot of traffic.

"Traffic, you mean like "Dear Mister Fantasy, play us a tune..."

No man, page views, man.

"Affirmation. Cool."

    That I remember having inane conversations like that in my youth or that you can still compose thoughts that way Russell ;^)

    Excellent post - and all kidding aside, Wolfgang's Vault has been playing on my Tablet PC since I discovered it last week. Some truly amazing performances in that collection.
