i worked on some art today, watched and posted some videos on here, played with Gizmo, ate mostly healthy food i bought yesterday, worked out with some 5 pound weights, tried singing a bunch of songs on karaoke on demand, in order to see what songs i can sing, and practice. i am happy to say that "white rabit" by jefferson airplane was one of the songs i sound okay on, so i am going to practice that. i really love that song. it gives me all kinds of memories.
it's funny how that song came out when my parents were teenagers, but that it was just as much a part of my teen years (if not more... my parents weren't really into them)

To be honest, the first time i ever heard Jefferson Airplane was when they were Jefferson Starship in the 80's and they did that sucky song "we built this city on rock and roll" which i had a single of... not on CD, not on vinyl, not on tape, not on 8 track, but on a special tape for my pocket rocker.

pocket rockers rocked. i used to take them with me when i went ice skating.
anyway... in 1992 i was re-introduced to Jefferson Airplane when i did the play "Go Ask Alice". We used 2 versions of that song in the play. First the original, and then, at the end we wrote in an extra scene which was basically an acid trip where me and this girl played ring around the rosey, singing in loud whiney voices, while this kid in a tux takes out the podium and reads the poem "Jabberwocky" from Alice in Wonderland in a very serios tone, and the straightedge hardcore version of White Rabit by Slapshot is playing. It was very cool.

under the cut are a few random videos with the song White Rabit
1. the jefferson airplane video
2. a sort of slashy star trek fan video version
3. a version to disney's alice in wonderland
i could not find the slapshot cover unfortunatly

i've always preferred jefferson airplane over jefferson starship - music and lyrics were better...

they arent even comparable really, you know? i mean, jefferson airplane were fuckin awesome and jefferson starship sucked ass.
they were much better on acid than on coke.

i was just joking with the acid/coke comment. but true they were good. have you evr heard the song with grace slick and linda perry from the 4 non blondes (who helped produce pink's albums and others?) It is a duet with those 2 women. The song is called Knock Me Out and was on The Crow City of Angels soundtrack
