05/23/18 - NNHS Newsletter - Spiderwebs

Humanity is like a giant spiderweb. If you touch it anywhere, you set the whole thing trembling. As we move around this world
and as we act with kindness, perhaps, or with indifference, or with hostility, toward the people we meet, we too are setting
the great spider web a-tremble. The life that I touch for good or ill will touch another life, and that in turn another,
until who knows where the trembling stops or in what far place and time my touch will be felt. Our lives are linked.
No man is an island.

(b. 11 July 1926)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Today's Newsletter theme was no doubt prompted by the tremendously huge spider which showed up in our bathroom and contaminated my dreams as well as my home.  Thanks a lot, Giant Spider!

BONUS - Spiderwebs - No Doubt, 1995


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

"Spiderwebs" is a ska punk song written by Gwen Stefani and Tony Kanal for No Doubt's third studio album Tragic Kingdom (1995). It was released as the album's second single in 1995 (see 1995 in music).

The song debuted at number 10 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart and peaked at number 5 after three weeks of its release. The song's lyrics are about a man who had been calling Gwen at all hours to recite bad poetry to her.[1] Musically, the song uses a drum for the beat and various brass instruments, such as a trombone to build up the crescendos in the chorus...

Spiderwebs

Written by Gwen Stefani (b. 03 Oct 1969) and Tony Kanal (b. 27 Aug 1970)

Recorded by No Doubt, 1995
 

Your words walk right through my ears
Presuming I like what I hear
And now I'm stuck in the
The web you're spinning
You've got me for your prey

(Yeah) Sorry I'm not home right now
I'm walking into spiderwebs
So leave a message
And I'll call you back
A likely story, but (Yeah) leave a message
And I'll call you back

You're intruding on what's mine
And you're taking up my time
Don't have the courage inside me
To tell you please let me be

Communication, a telephonic invasion
I'm planning my escape...

(Yeah) Sorry I'm not home right now
I'm walking into spiderwebs
So leave a message
And I'll call you back
A likely story, but (Yeah) leave a message
And I'll call you back

And it's all your fault
I screen my phone calls
No matter who calls
I gotta screen my phone calls

Now it's gone to deep (Now, it's gone too deep)
You wake me in my sleep (Wake me in my sleep)
My dreams become nightmares (Dreams become nightmares)
'Cause you're ringing in my ears

(Yeah) Sorry I'm not home right now
I'm walking into spiderwebs
So leave a message
And I'll call you back
A likely story, but (Yeah) leave a message
And I'll call you back

And it's all your fault
I screen my phone calls
No matter-matter-matter-matter who calls
I gotta screen my phone calls

Oooh, the spiderwebs
Leave a message and I'll call you back
I'm walking into spiderwebs
So, leave a message and I'll call you back
I'm walking into spiderwebs
It's all your fault, no matter who calls
I gotta screen my phone calls
It's all your fault, it's all your fault
No matter who calls, no matter who calls

I'm walking into spiderwebs so,
Leave a message and I'll call you back
I'm walking into spiderwebs so,
Leave a message and I'll call you back
