Led zeppelin- "Immigrant Song" (Page, Plant) - 1970
Ah,ah Ah,ah
We come from the land of the ice and snow,from the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
The hammer of the gods
Will drive our ships to new lands,
To fight the horde, singing and crying ..
Valhalla, I am coming!
On we sweep with threshing oar,
Our only goal will be the western shore.
Ah,ah Ah,ah
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
from the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
How soft your fields so green,
Can whisper tales of gore,
Of how we calmed the tides of war.
We are your overlords.
On we sweep with threshing oar,
Our only goal will be the western shore.
So now youd better stop and rebuild all your ruins,
For peace and trust can win the day
Despite of all your losing.

"Going to California"?!?!

As Immigrants, we always have choices... and this makes Going to California so beautiful...

"Going to California" is the penultimate song performed by the English rock band Led Zeppelin on their fourth album, released in 1971.

Spend my days with a woman unkind
Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine
Made up my mind, make a new start
Goin' to California with an achin' in my heart
Someone told me there's a girl out there
With love in her eyes and flowers in her hair

Took my chances on a big jet-plane
Never let 'em tell ya that they're aw-ooh-all the same
Hoh, the sea was red and the sky was grey
I wonder how tomorrow could ever follow today-hee
Mountains and the canyons start to tremble and shake
The children of the sun begin to awake
Watch out

It seems that the wrath of the gods got a punch on the nose
And it's startin' to flow, I think I might be sinkin'
Throw me a line, if I reach it in time
Meet you up there where the path runs straight and high

Find a queen without a king
They say she plays guitar and cries and sings, la-la-la-la
Ride a white mare in the footsteps of dawn
Tryin' to find a woman who's never, never, never been born
Standin' on a hill in the mountain of dreams
Tellin' myself it's not as hard, hard, hard as it seems

Disrupt IT

"Kashmir" - I am a traveler of both time and space

Oh let the sun beat down upon my face
With stars to fill my dream.
I am a traveler of both time and space
To be where I have been.

To sit with elders of a gentle race
This world has seldom seen.
They talk of days for which they sit and wait
When all will be revealed.

Talk an' song from tongues of lilting grace
Whose sounds caress my ear.
But not a word I heard could I relate
The story was quite clear.

Oh baby, I've been flyin'
Oh mama there
Ain't no denyin'

I've been flyin'
Ain't no denyin'
No denyin'-uh

All I see turns to brown
As the sun burns the ground.
And my eyes fill with sand
As I scan this wasted land.
Tryin' to find
Tryin' to find
Where I've been.

Oh pilot of the storm who leaves no trace
Like thoughts inside a dream
Who hid the path that led me to that place
Of yellow desert screen.

"Kashmir" is a song by the English rock band Led Zeppelin from their sixth album Physical Graffiti, released in 1975. It was written by Jimmy Page and Robert Plant (with contributions from John Bonham) over a period of three years, with the lyrics dating back to 1973.

Californians should migrate here

The earthquake risk is much lower...everything is much lower...except the pollution factor...easy to fix that...just let the trees take over :)

Land of the FREE?

I wish I had my camera today--on most weekend days you can see Rich, a Vietnam war veteran stationed on West 14th at the Steelyard round-about, with his End War sign. 

Land of the Free--Home of the Brave??

Ask Rich...
