I've seriously seen it all at this point.

The whole concept seems kinda ridiculous to me... but then again, the author does have some impressive credentials and is backed by Brown University... so who knows?

Any takers?

Send your completed performance to LSB3, and we'll post your videotaped "one man play" immediately! LOL

Listening to Charles Manson speak for more than 5 consecutive minutes can result in "brain-warshin'". LOL.

Actually this looks kind of interesting. :)

This is my thought process:

In the middle of the night

go walking in my sleep From the mountains of faith

To a river so deep

I must be looking for something

Something sacred I lost

But the river is wide And it's too hard to cross

And even though I know the river is wide I walk down every evening and I stand on the shore And try to cross to the opposite side So I can finally find out what I've been looking for

In the middle of the night

I go walking in my sleep

Through the valley of fear

To a river so deep

And I've been searching for something

Taken out of my soul

Something I would never lose

Something somebody stole

I don't know why I go walking at night But now I'm tired and I don't want to walk anymore

I hope it doesn't take the rest of my life

Until I find what it is that I've been looking for

In the middle of the night I go walking in my sleep

Through the jungle of doubt To a river so deep

I know I'm searching for something

Something so undefined

That it can only be seen By the eyes of the blind

In the middle of the night

I'm not sure about a life after this God knows I've never been a spiritual man Baptized by the fire, I wade into the river That runs to the promised land

In the middle of the night I go walking in my sleep

Through the desert of truth To the river so deep

We all end in the ocean We all start in the streams We're all carried along By the river of dreams

In the middle of the night

The end of that video is Goodnight my Angel.

Here it is.

It is my lullaby to my son...

I never will be far away....

katie8753 said...

Goodnight my angel, time to close your eyes

And save these questions for another day

I think I know what you've been asking me

I think you know what I've been trying to say

I promised I would never leave you
Then you should always know
Wherever you may go, no matter where you are
I never will be far away

Goodnight my angel, now it's time to sleep

And still so many things I want to say
Remember all the songs you sang for me

When we went sailing on an emerald bay

And like a boat out on the ocean
I'm rocking you to sleep

The water's dark and deep, inside this ancient heart

You'll always be a part of me.

Goodnight my angel, now it's time to dream

And dream how wonderful your life will be

Someday your child may cry, and if you sing this lullaby

Then in your heart there will always be a part of me

Someday we'll all be gone
But lullabies go on and on
They never die

That's how you and I will be!!! :)

Beautiful, your child would be so happy to hear these words :)

I think William Shatner would be the best One Man play performer on this one....

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

Hi Purple... welcome to the blog.

I'm sorry it took your comment so long to post.
I'm having an exceptionally busy day today.


katie8753 said...

Hi Purple. Thanks!! :)

katie8753 said...

Dill, good suggestion. What about Johnny Depp? That guy can play anything.

Also Steve Railsback did a damn good job of playing Manson in the 70's Helter Skelter TV film.

katie8753 said...

Hey Dill, did you know that the mask Michael Myers wore in Halloween was William Shatner's face? LOL.

katie8753 said...

California Dreamin'. 1967.

Did everyone know that Roman boinked the girl on the left. She will be nameless, because she doesn't even matter. She was only in the band because of her husband.

She played the tambourine. Big fucking deal. A monkey could do that.

YEAH BUDDY. She was needed. By a horny dickwad. HA HA.

Mama Cass was the only female talent in that band.

Sharon found out about it. She was pissed off. Can you blame her?


katie8753 said...

This is the song that got me itching for California....

You all know the rest of the story.....Sigh!!! Whatever.

katie8753 said...

Dig those plastic white go-go boots! HA HA.

PURPLE said...

He would have been better off with Cilla, she could belt them out. A LOT better off. He would have been better off with so many others. What a fool.

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

I gotta go with Joe Pesci.

I think Joe Pesci would ROCK as Manson... for this one-man play!

And just think...
Pesci's the perfect height!!! LOL

katie8753 said...

Purple, I'm not familiar with Cilla. Is that an English singer???

I found where Paul McCartney sang one of her songs, Step Inside Love.

That's as far as I can go tonight. I'm bushed.

Cheers!!!! :)
