Dazed and Confused

All I know is that you love me...in my dreams.”

 - Winnie-the-Pooh, as related by A. A. Milne
(18 Jan 1882 - 31 Jan 1956)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,  

   Today's theme is prompted by my state of mind for the past couple of weeks.....  

BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTsvs-pAGDc - Dazed and Confused - Jake Holmes, June 1967 (no video)

BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lkb1R_yif9I - Dazed and Confused - Led Zeppelin, Supershow, 1969


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dazed_and_Confused_%28song%29: 

"Dazed and Confused" is a song originally written and performed by Jake Holmes. It was covered by the Yardbirds, and later reworked by Led Zeppelin who hold a separate copyright on the song.[1]

Singer-songwriter Jake Holmes wrote and recorded "Dazed and Confused" for his debut solo album "The Above Ground Sound" of Jake Holmes, released in June 1967. Like the other tracks on the album, the song does not include any drums. It was recorded entirely with the trio of Holmes on guitar, keyboard and vocals, Ted Irwin on guitar and Rick Randle on bass.[2][3] The song has been incorrectly labelled as a tale about a bad acid trip. Holmes himself has confirmed that this is not the case. In 2001 he gave an interview to Shindig! magazine and said this about "Dazed and Confused":

I never took acid. I smoked grass and tripped on it, but I never took acid. I was afraid to take it. The song's about a girl who hasn't decided whether she wants to stay with me or not. It's pretty much one of those love songs.[4]

In June 2010, Jake Holmes sued Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page for copyright infringement, claiming to have written and recorded "Dazed and Confused" two years before it appeared on Led Zeppelin's debut album. In court documents Holmes cited a 1967 copyright registration for "Dazed and Confused" which was renewed in 1995.[5] This court case (Case No. CV10-4789-DMG-PJW) was "dismissed with prejudice", presumably because the parties settled out of court—in January 2012.[6]

..... The song is included in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.

   From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 02/02/13 - "absolutely brilliant VIDEO":

This is neat!

This is absolutely brilliant .......
Somebody had a lot of fun with this and spent hours putting these clips together. Most of the people in the clips were deceased before the Bee Gee's recorded "Stayin' Alive." Whether you are a Bee Gee's or Rita Hayworth fan or not...I think you are going to enjoy this!!! It shows one thing and that is the music may change but the moves are timeless.

   This is fabulous, Billy - thank you so much!


  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 02/02/13 - "1910":

I don't know if all these statistics are accurate but they are interesting. My dad was born in 1910 so of course they're interesting to me and maybe to some of you in my age bracket.

   Thank you, Joyce! I was unable to find out if this was true or not, either, but it's certainly fascinating!


    From the Head Flagtwirler of 1965, Janice McCain Rose of Northern VA - 02/02/13 - "TAKE MY A** TO JAIL!":

A Virginia State trooper pulled a car over on I-64 about 2 miles south of the Virginia/ West Virginia State line. When the trooper asked the driver why he was speeding, the driver said he was a Magician and Juggler and was on his way to Beckley, WV to do a show at the Shrine Circus. He didn't want to be late.

The trooper told the driver he was fascinated by juggling and said if the driver would do a little juggling for him then he wouldn't give him a ticket. He told the trooper he had sent his equipment ahead and didn't have anything to juggle.

The trooper said he had some flares in the trunk and asked if he could juggle them. The juggler said he could, so the trooper got 5 flares, lit them and handed them to him.

While the man was juggling, a car pulled in behind the patrol car. A drunken good old boy from West Virginia got out, watched the performance, then went over to the patrol car, opened the rear door and got in. The trooper observed him and went over to the patrol car, opened the door asking the drunk what he thought he was doing.

The drunk replied, 'You might as well take my a** to jail, cause there ain't no way I can pass that test.'

        Thanks, Janice!


  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 02/02/13 - "TO OLD FRIENDS":

TODAY IS THE OLDEST YOU'VE EVER BEEN, YET THE YOUNGEST YOU'LL EVER BE - SO - ENJOY THIS DAY WHILE IT LASTS.



~Your kids are becoming you......but your grandchildren are perfect!

~Going out is good.. Coming home is better!

~You forget names.... But it's OK because other people forgot they even knew you!!!

~You realize you're never going to be really good at anything.... especially Golf.

~The things you used to care to do, you no longer care to do, but you really do care that you don't care to do them anymore.

~You sleep better on a lounge chair with the TV blaring than in bed. It's called "pre-sleep".

~You miss the days when everything worked with just an "ON" and "OFF" Switch..

~You tend to use more 4 letter words ... "what?"..."when?"... ???

~Now that you can afford expensive jewelry, it's not safe to wear it anywhere.

~You notice everything they sell in stores is "sleeveless"?!!!

~What used to be freckles are now liver spots.

~Everybody whispers.

~You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet.... 2 of which you will never wear.

~~~But Old is good in some things: Old songs, Old movies, and best of all, OLD FRIENDS!!



Stay well, "OLD FRIEND!" Send this on to other "Old Friends!" and let them laugh in AGREEMENT!!!

It's Not What You Gather, But What You Scatter That Tells What Kind Of Life You Have Lived

 

   AMEN! Thanks again, Joyce!


BONUS VALENTINE CROCHET PATTERN (Wal, you wouldn't want a confusing pattern, would ja? ):

http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/tree-hearts - Linda Cyr's Tree Hearts - This was one of my favorite, most adaptable patterns from a while back; I also featured it here:

http://nnhs65.com/12-05-11-NNHS-The-First-Noel.html
 

     It's quite pretty made with worsted weight yarn, but when worked with two strands of #10 crochet thread held together using a size B crochet hook, it creates a very elegant heart - and as suitable for Valentine's Day as for Christmas!

   The design works up quickly. It takes me about an hour a heart - and I am a super-slow crocheter (despite 55 years of practice)! I used 1/4" white ribbon to trim these smaller versions, which are about 2'' high and 3" wide.

 
 


BONUS DAZED RECIPE:

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 02/02/13:

An obnoxious drunk stumbled into the front door of a bar and ordered a drink.

The bartender said, "No way, buddy, you're too drunk."

A few minutes later the drunk came in through the bathrooms. Again he slurred, "Give me a drink."

The bartender said, "No, man, I told you last time; you're too drunk."

Five minutes later the guy came in through the back door and ordered a drink.

Again the bartender said, "You're too drunk."

The drunk scratches his head and says "D___, I must be... the last two places said the same thing."

Dazed and Confused

Written and recorded by Jake Holmes, 1967
 (b. 28 Dec 1939)

Recorded by Led Zeppelin, 1969


Been dazed and confused for so long it's not true.
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you.
Lots of people talk and few of them know,
soul of a woman was created below.

You hurt and abuse tellin' all of your lies.
Run around sweet baby, Lord how they hypnotize.
Sweet little baby, I don't know where you've been.
Gonna love you baby, here I come again.

Every day I work so hard, bringin' home my hard earned pay
Try to love you baby, but you push me away.
Don't know where you're goin', only know just where you've been,
Sweet little baby, I want you again.

Been dazed and confused for so long, it's not true.
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you.
Take it easy baby, let them say what they will.
Will your tongue wag so much when I send you the bill?
