jsut wondering what everyone else’s interpretation of a "green mind" actually is. I always figured it was about an alternate state of mind experienced after smoking the herb. It seems to have several references in that direction. But I’d really love to hear what you all think the "green mind" is. So…post away!

Here here, Tonyman… Couldn’t have put it any better myself… [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img]October 1, 2001 at 9:34 am #56712
yeah…nice! I had definately picked up on the social viewpoints/attitudes expressed and his evalution/re-evaluation of thoughts and opinions. (just thought they were realized/ understood after a puff) but I guess that part isn’t necessary. The "green" threw me off. I’ve never heard it used like that (better start consulting Mr. Webster more often [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img] ).
on the outside- other veiwpoints
come to my side and i’ll introduce you to- thoughts within his own head
I always thought of "them" as being other people but it totally makes since that "them is other people’s thoughts/ideas/views as well as other people [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]
I like it Tones, thanx for the perspective [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]
Maybe we should start a specialized disecting unit dedicated to the sole purpose of breaking down and interpreting each Dino song word for word until we can cole to an agreeable conclusion as to what each means [img]images/smiles/converted/cool.gif[/img]
side note-back to the blob-he definately could be talking about the real movie "blob"- but the song is still more about someone he associates with it rather than the actual "blob" itself. what do you think?

well then we’re in agreeance! any thoughts as to what the "glove" is in keep the glove and your interpretation of that song? [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]October 2, 2001 at 8:35 pm #56714
I know exaclty where your coming from. I’ve definately seen the bottom of the barrel and met with the most elite in my quests. The worst was always playing the "waiting game". Sometimes it would last for days, but I was always willing to play. Got onto a lot of harder things, too, so I’ve seen a lot. The week long trips, the all weekend long binges where sleep was just a far off place that I’d never get to, the emotions running high and out of control…Still enjoy the occasional puff but not like I used to…every now and then is more than enough. Alas, it’s just not for me anymore, guess that’s what happens when you grow up. It was fun for a while, but there’s just too much at risk in it now. all the people I’ve hurt…family, friends, girlfriends…The scum you have to associate with, pimps, skanks, jail time, property seizures, guns, beatings, maybe even the loss of your life. (I know a guy who had his face completely rearranged with a 2×4, they needed a picture to reconstruct it, all over a several hundred dollar owed debt…some people don’t fuck around) it’s just not worth it…not anymore…probably, no, surely never was worth it. Definately a case of youthful innocence lost. But I’m smarter and better because of it now. Try to live our lives in the most productive ways possible I guess. Live and learn. Thank god J was there too support me through it all…
the dreams keep me awake…the feelings hard to shake
your not going to get me through this are you?
starting to see why J means so much to me?
damn, what a moment of re/inflection…thanx tones [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img]October 2, 2001 at 8:50 pm #56715
in a 1991 sebadoh interview lou says that j recently started smoking pot, but we know what lou went through with j at that period, so this info should be taken as a grain of salt. but: why not? [img]images/smiles/converted/smile.gif[/img]October 2, 2001 at 8:57 pm #56716
okay, okay, donÂ´t blame me for this, honestly i think this is a very interesting subject, but the song titles that come to mind are amazing:
puke & cry – something that DOES infact happen sometimes from smoking pot
blowing it – BONG!
flying cloud (….anyway….)
water (pot gets you very very thirsty)
thumb (wash your hands afterwards)
pebbles & WEEDs
okay. i hope i wonÂ´t get banned for this & honestly: i donÂ´t like what pot does to me. [img]images/smiles/converted/rolleyes.gif[/img]October 3, 2001 at 3:19 am #56717
THE SONG GREEN MIND
IS ABOUT SONIC YOUTH!!!!!
HOW HE FEELS HE DOESN’T FIT
IN WITH THEM.
J SAID SO HIMSELFOctober 3, 2001 at 9:46 am #56718
well…now that we know who the "who" is he doesn’t fit in with, I’d say we’ve done a pretty good job at tearing Green Mind apart. Thanx for confirming conclusions we had come to Uma’s Cow! [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]
Militant mo fos shooting up the place! That’s the kind a crap I’m talking about, just not for me (little too crazy)
( i think this one may have fit better under AGAP’s horrible/ tragic occurence thread [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img] )

I can’t for the life of me understand the "frogs" part of the Green Mind lyrics, namely
<BLOCKQUOTE><font>quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by braineater:
<STRONG>So the frogs’ll hang
They’ll always be hangin’
Could someone try to explain what "frogs" refer to, is it some sort of american slang I haven’t heard b4? Are the frogs Sonic Youth?October 3, 2001 at 6:32 pm #56720
Hey kerb-dogma, didn’t know there’s a band called the Frogs. Are they any good, i.e. worth checking out?October 3, 2001 at 6:42 pm #56721
I `ve seen a Frogs cd around,I did some reading on them and found that they were formed in 1980,there`s 2 of them,two brothers,I guess they`re like Ween by the sound of it,wacky stuff,I also heard that Nirvana,Pearl Jam,and the Smashing Pumpkins are fans.
I have`nt heard anything by them so I can`t recommend anything.I don`t think J was refering to them,I think frogs was a metaphor maybe for SY or people he feels he has nothing in common with.October 3, 2001 at 8:48 pm #56722
i always thought the frogs was just that, frogs. you know, a place of solitude he goes to to get away from it all and just think by himself…next to a river, a brdge over a pond etc.. He says "come to my side and I’ll introduce you to…some of their kind…might be with them tonight…" Hanging with the frogs i.e. hanging with HIS ideas. "Some of their kind" being the thoughts he has rather than everyone else’s.
Here’s another part though that I think tweed is involved cuz’ he says "gotta unfry ‘fore I take it up with you." He has to come down off his buzz and get away from his thought’s (back to reality) to focus in on other things.
I don’t think pond song was about drugs but the one two songs before it is…Yeah We Know
push too far…feel the skin begin to scar-needle tracks
got no clue we just know what we do-just needing that fix
take it in…wait and see…if it’s enough just cuz’ it’s free-jumping on a free buzz, and if it’s enough he won’t have to buy any more to get that fix
there’s a few other lines that made me think but I can’t remember what they are and the cd’s in my car so this post stops there.
Get back to ya on "the glove" when I have more time. (trying to cram a 10 week physics course into 5 days…hopefully I can test out of it so I don’t have to take it [img]images/smiles/converted/cool.gif[/img] )October 4, 2001 at 9:56 am #56723
