Per Pam Mark Hall on FB, Line 6 gave the band an endorsement deal for the tour, thus the Variax's.

So this is a Variax with pickups too? Didn't know that was out there.

I've never played a VAX (I assume that's the insider lingo uou're using) but seen a few played at various shows. Steve Howe of Yes uses one to replace some of his more exotic instruments like the Coral electric Sitar, but I haven't seen one played as a main axe much.

So which puts more $ in DA pockets? Buying them from the Webstore or at the Show? Or are they about equal?

Thanks audoris for all your dedication, BTW.

Phoenix show 06-15-2011 16:42 Forum: General Discussion


HEY BIG DORK!

I'll be a the Phoenix show (maybe Tucson too if it happens) and dragging along a buddy of mine,whio liked _MBD_.

Also trying to get the word out to others who might have lost touch with DA after the Maranatha days.

I am really pumped as my first and only DA show was C2K, though I've seen the Dogs a number of times.

I notice the church they are gigging at in Phx looks a bit conservative in pictures. I hope they aren't afraid to rock it up still.

Nobel Laureate Poet Czeslaw Milosz Dies

Sat Aug 14,12:55 PM ET

By VANESSA GERA, Associated Press Writer

WARSAW, Poland - Polish poet and Nobel laureate Czeslaw Milosz, known for
his intellectual and emotional works about some of the worst cruelties of
the 20th century, died Saturday, his assistant said. He was 93.

Milosz died at his home in Krakow surrounded by his family, the assistant,
Agnieszka Kosinska, told The Associated Press by telephone. The exact cause
of death was not immediately known.

"It's death, simply death. It was his time — he was 93," Kosinska said.

Milosz had lived in Krakow since the fall of the Iron Curtain allowed him to
return home after almost 30 years in exile in France and the United States,
a time in which he became a prominent symbol for anti-communist dissidents.

He was awarded the Nobel prize in literature in 1980, an honor that
coincided with the emergence of the Solidarity worker protest movement that
shook communist rule in Poland.

Milosz's best-known works include "The Captive Mind," a study of the plight
of intellectuals under communist dictatorship. It brought him international
fame in the early 1950s.

Prime Minister Marek Belka called Milosz "a great Pole" Saturday.

"With his heart and pen he showed us the way, explained reality, and
prompted us to do good," Belka told the Polish news agency PAP.

Born to a noble family in what is now Lithuania, Milosz lived through the
World War II Nazi regime and the Stalinist tyranny that wiped out the
culture in which he grew up.

Once a diplomat for communist Poland, he broke with the regime and emigrated
to the United States, coming back to live in his native country only after
Poland won freedom in 1989.

He was "a witness to crucial and terrible events of the 20th century, and an
original and contrary thinker — and feeler — about them," said Robert Hass,
a University of California at Berkeley professor who translated Milosz's
poetry.

Milosz's poetry was praised for its enormous range of subject matter and
technique, and its mix of sensuousness and references to culture, religion
and philosophy.

He described his outlook this way:

"How do you write about suffering and still be able to approve of the world
at the same time? If you really think about the horror of the world, the
only suitable attitude seems to be to reject it," Milosz told the Polish
weekly Tygodnik Powszechny in 2001.

"I've always regretted that I'm made of contradictions. But, if
contradiction is impossible to overcome, we have to accept both its ends."

Milosz also carried the burden of being an intellectual in exile, one whose
poems were only published in his native country after he was awarded the
Nobel Prize.

"The birth of Solidarity and martial law made Milosz a myth, which he
couldn't entirely shake off — a myth of anti-communist militant, fighter for
freedom," said Milosz biographer Lukasz Stadnicki. "Even if he didn't want
it, he had to face the role of national prophet."

Exile and the feelings of being a foreigner intensified the theme of memory
in his work. He often explored the problem of roots in his writing.

"The Issa Valley," published in 1955, tells the story of the poet's
childhood. "A View of San Francisco Bay," published in 1969, traces the
poet's efforts to find his own place in the United States where, in his
words, he "remained an outcast."

Milosz was born on June 30, 1911, in Szetejnie, now Lithuania, and studied
law at the University in Vilnius. There, he published his first book of
poems, "Three Winters," in 1936.

The themes of his early poetry were a portent of his later works, a
historical perspective combined with individual experience of the world,
expressed in simple images of the idyllic and the apocalyptic.

After World War II, Milosz served in communist Poland's diplomatic service
as a cultural attache in New York and Paris. In 1951, he severed ties with
the government and sought political asylum in France, entering into
cooperation with a Paris-based institute that specialized in Polish emigre
literature.

The Cold War peak of the early 1950s was a period of great loneliness for
him, during which he said he often thought about suicide. His works, written
in Polish, did not reach his native country because of communist censorship,
and he was unknown to foreign readers.

In 1960, Milosz left France for California, where he spent more than 20
years as Professor of Slavic Languages and Literature at Berkeley.
English-speaking audiences got access to his poetry only in 1973, when some
of his work was translated in "Selected Poems."

At 90, Milosz said he was still up at night writing poems.

"It's not possible to be sated with the world. I'm still insatiable," he
said. "At my age, I'm still looking for a form, for a language to express
the world."

Milosz is survived by two sons. His first wife, Janina, died in 1986. His
second wife, Carol, a U.S.-born historian, died in 2003.

Funeral arrangements were pending.

Well Jeffrey, I'm glad you were able to get it.

I posted the info on the board here instead of the DADL cuz I wanted the chances that fan would get it to be higher (there are some dealer type folks on the DADL and while I don't neccssarily mind what they do I thought it better that a fan get the disc).

If you do end up with it Jeffrey, I think that would be great since you have demonstrated your commitemnt to this music by putting your mula and efforts behind Lost Dogs, Adam Again etc.

Hmmm, from his "about me" page,

he at least expresses a desire to help bands out. He claims he is trying to raise money to help them re-releae older material.

You never know with people on-line (it'e easy to lie) but he doesn't sounds like such a terrible guy.

Nah, I don't see anything wrong with it. In fact, if anything, I would tend to think less of the person who *spent* the $139 - seems like he could do a lot more good in the world with that money than snag a CDset, regardless of how wonderful it might be.

If I was Terry, (or rather, if I personally produced something that sold way over the original price on eBay) I wouldn't care one way or the other. These are two autonomous human beings who made a bargain and it's between them and their conscience (or God) to determine what they do with their money - it's basically none of my business, as far as I'm concerned.

Out of curiosity Joey, I am wondering why it would make you mad (at either party)? You are welcome to try and change my mind.... Smile

I figure the price paid is between the buyer and the seller - if they are both happy with it, then what's the problem? If the seller feels bad he can donate some of the excess to Terry or charity. Whether he feels he should do that or not, is between him and God. Either way Terry and the boys made what they expected to make when they sold it originally.

All the time! That is how I found out about DA!
I miss that rag! Crying


I loved that rag! It turned my head around for Christian rock in the late 80's. I was into "Jesus Music" back in the 70's (including the originla DA, BTW) but I lost track and interest in it (CCM - ack! what a horrible label) during the 80's - very bland or silly metal stuff. But I saw a copy of HRS in 1988 or so and BQN turned me on to The Choir, Adam Again, DA (again), Sam Phillips, Mark Heard 9again) etc. and I will be forever thankful.

I remember what grabbed me first was his editorial in the first issue I picked up and he was using the climactic scene on the roof from _Blade Runner_ to make some point about Christianity and I was hooked. Most people at my church thought the movie was evil or something and to see him quote it so casually really spoke volumes.

That's my testimony. Amen?

I actually made a CDr of this one for backup, just in case.

I remember one guy on the DADL confessing that he had back-up copy CDrs made of the rarest CDs and kept the originals in a fire proof safe in his house. I actually thought about doing this but figured it might be a little too obsessive. Smile

_Rock Around the World_
_Boot level_
_Live at Flevo_
_Orphans of God_
_Alternative Worship_
_Happy Christmas Vol 2_


All the rest I seem to have in best available format, so there! Tongue
