This reference to the Dead Weather (and the Stripes, to boot) gave me a chuckle-- http://www.ninersnat...rs-front-office The things with which people associate song lyrics never cease to be fascinating ;)


as far as the white stripes reference, that guy is tasteless, cretinous boor

"I LUV U!!!!!1 <3!111."

I find it really disheartening when a "professional" writer uses that type of "language."

Looook, a whole Dead Weather set is on youtube! It's from some concert in Montreux from July 2010.

This is the first song, the rest is on youtube!

As well as the Meg thing, did he just wonder if a black guy with a Nigerian name/ancestry was "a secret cannibal"? What century is he from? Jesus J Christ on a Segway...

the live show at the Roxy is filmed with such precision and expertise that i have to ask if anyone knows who produced it



you can see the fans clearly and the details of Dean's work as well as getting some seriously unique Jack footage

Jack's scary in a damned good way at the end of that performance and I truly do love that song, but I'd still debate that it's the best thing they've done. Don't forget about this--

No Hassle Night is often a dirge, though. That was a particularly fiery one. My favorite is Bone House. I hear the song as if from a black-hearted, dark-side obsessed witch carrying a powerful man's child for some nefarious purpose, like a twisted Bene Gesserit. She's gloating over the baby she's making, "I build a road for your mind...I put your heart in a vault...I build a house for your bones...I build a bone house."

Turning a phrase around like "house for your bones - a bone house" so that it means two different things seems to be an Alison specialty. I wish I had the knack myself.




They did a similar thing with it to the NHN/IJWMLTY above when I saw them in LA, but the jam didn't go as far and anyway, my cellphone video of it is terrrible.

edit: apparently I don't know how to post a video. Sorry.

Yes, it was my comment. Not only do I not know how to post a video, I apparently can't do so without changing the size of the text. And thanks! :)

that's a very interesting perspective, Elixir- I like it!
last fall/winter I was extremely preoccupied with this song & started researching the concept of "bone houses". here are some of the best examples I've found, http://www.panoramio.../photo/45259040, from the Istre Cemetery in Morse, LA. See also, http://www.katc.com/...e-house-legends. although there is some speculation as to why these 'houses' came about and, also, why the practice of building them died out, it appears families usually got to work building the house right around the time of their relatives death, as a shelter for the 'bones' (shelter from 'dead weather'?)
personally I've always thought of 'Bone House' as a twisted view of marriage/relationships, or kind of along the lines of "you've got her in your pocket"

i really think its interesting that someone started a series of 'houses' in our public park last year that looked a lot like bone houses ... they looked like this

the bone house is really a way of understanding the intimate nature of the soul and where it lives as a place that is retaining things that should not be scavenged by wild animals or tilled under in the rush to make more and build more with no respect to our ancestors intentions .... some cultures believe that it takes time for the soul to make sense of things and choose its path from there

vietnam had a big problem with the lack of proper housing for all its dead as bones ... the lyrics of the song and the mind of the will

this is a building by Gaudi who builds many structures which are biomorphic and bone like

not sure i even want to fully get into the psychology of those 5 dead fred heads batting those ideas around

ymagirl, those bone houses are great! I've never really thought of a place built for one set of bones to play cards and drink coffee. I've seen mausoleums, and I've seen the thousand year bone piles that monks build, like this one. You've opened something up for me.

Generally i think the idea is that there are some people who need a place to hold onto things and those people create an atmosphere of control derived from the ambition to lock in meaningful commitments that stifle a free soul.... the bone house is the sort of offering made to spirits that are not going anywhere or choosing to leave the material world of belongings and defined self

but thats mostly a spiritual notion associated with social constructs that rely on accountable predictability

&quot;Poor man's mausoleum&quot; was the first thing I thought on seeing that. They are indeed very cool, though I don't quite understand why the folks making that documentary felt there was a question that needed to be answered. Seems self-explanatory to me.

Saw this on a travelogue show recently and it looks to be just as amazing as the Catacombs of Paris-- http://www.artgraphi...bone-church.htm




A bone house devoted to prayer.
