Join Ra as he explains how the correct environment nourishes you from the outside and eliminates resistance in your life.

I haven’t found it yet

Blain L. Reininger had a fairly rough time of it getting solo shows together after the move to Brussels – the incident that the song and album Broken Fingers refers to happened after one of them – but the two shows that provided the tracks for Live in Brussels found him perhaps at his jive solo peak. The help of his soon-to-be-dismissed backing band didn’t hurt, making this both an unintentional farewell and a distinct calling card for all involved. Though a short album is originally released and reworked slightly in studio after the fact, live in Brussels hits the ground running with a winner, the brawling “Volo Vivace” (Reininger’s hyperactive violin is fiat-out marvelous) and after that makes its’ sometimes bemusing way. “Night Air” walks a slightly uneasy balance between a too pristine recreation and a fiery instrumental break, while the introduction to “Uptown” in particular comes across as a personal tribute to Tom Waits that veers between the sharp and the silly, but on the whole the performances are mighty fine, with Alain Goutier’s work on keyboards of special note. Reininger’s occasional drawling interjections make for a nice personal touch as well- check his introduction to “The Birthday Song” for a prime example. LTM’s 2004 reissue once again does the expected killer job – right from the start, as the otherwise unreleased instrumental “Intro” shows. A lovely meditation focused on a central keyboard melody and Reininger’s part-drone violin work, it could almost be his own contribution to Brian Eno’s On land, Four other songs from the shows appear as bonuses. There’s one further addition, a take on “Mystery and Confusion” from a French show a year later. – Blaine L. Reininger : Live in Brussels 02/1986

Chain Oilers research

3 very interesting links and viewpoints:

http://earth-roamers.blogspot.com/2015/03/fitting-tutoro-chain-oiler.html

It really seems the Tutoro is the way to go. As it gives off about a drop a minute when you ride, and only when you ride. Full stop in traffic-jams during rush hour or in front of traffic lights it does not give off any oil (or perhaps 1 drop). The Scottoiler connected to the engines vacuum would give off oil whenever the engine runs.

With Cobrra, Osco and Loobman, once the plunger is pressed or pulled or swiveled a quarter turn, oil will come, and relatively a lot of oil all at once, so you need to be driving at a given speed for it to work properly. If you need to stop shortly after activation, oil will run off the sprocket/chain onto either the ground or your tire.

Also the timing of a certain amount of oil every once in a while is better than using spray bottles, but dosage is more accurately administered with the Tutoro, 1 drop a minute, only when you drive. And in heavy rains one can adjust say 1/4 or 1/2 turn more oil/drips per minute.

Space and the Judge

“The judge will attack your experience of space from different directions:”So you are feeling emptiness in your head You numskull, that means you are stupid! … If you start losing your sense of boundaries, you are asking for trouble…. Quit spacing out and get to work! What do you mean, you don’t feel guilty about what happened? Don’t bother trying to sense yourself; there’s nothing there-and that’s your problem!” Until you begin to recognize spaciousness for what it is-the authentic presence of your beingness without any content-your judge will easily distract you from experiences of open emptiness. All it has to do is call up the image of something missing and you will fill up the space with searching and worrying!

Spaciousness has its own particular power in relation to the judge. It is what is in between and around words, objects, and ideas. The more you are aware of space as an experiential quality, the more you are focused on the open field in which everything arises. This is the opposite of content, of the narrow, focused engagement with the judge.The judge’s message is seductive compared to other content, but compared to empty space, it is no more powerful than a TV commercial and considerably less pleasant than a nice piece of music.When you are feeling spacious, the judge is not right in your face, even if it is present, so it can’t exert its usual degree of pressure. In fact, spacious means space to choose, space to ignore, or space to go around. Feeling spacious brings elements ofour experience back into proper proportion, and the judge’s significance rapidly diminishes.

Post Kiron: Lights, Camera, Action

3-Post-Kiron

The post-Kironian phase is about the fulfillment of life as a passenger. We are passengers in a vehicle, and if we honor the form, the passenger inside the vehicle is liberated. The post-Kironian phase, as the result of Strategy and Authority, allows for the differentiation of the passenger consciousness and through this, our awareness and outer Authority will be demonstrated.

The Greatest Recording Studio In The World

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2492916

 

A documentary that celebrates Rick Hall, the founder of FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, and the signature sound he developed in songs such as “I’ll Take You There”, “Brown Sugar”, and “When a Man Loves a Woman”. Located alongside the Tennessee River, Muscle Shoals, Alabama is the unlikely breeding ground for some of America’s most creative and defiant music. Under the spiritual influence of the ‘Singing River’ as Native Americans called it, the music of Muscle Shoals changed the world and sold millions upon millions of copies. At its heart is Rick Hall who founded FAME Studios. Overcoming crushing poverty and staggering tragedies, he brought black and white together in Alabama’s cauldron of racial hostility to create music for the generations while giving birth to the ‘Muscle Shoals Sound’ and ‘The Swampers’. Others bear witness to Muscle Shoals’ magnetism, mystery, and why it remains influential today.

Director: Greg ‘Freddy’ Camalier
Stars: Rick Hall, Barry Beckett, Roger Hawkins, David Hood, Jimmy Johnson, Pete Carr, Spooner Oldham, Albert S. Lowe Jr., Clayton Ivey, Randy McCormick, and Will McFarlane
