great, difficult poll

princess of hell (BradNelson), Thursday, 19 July 2018 13:46 (one year ago) link

Both are of immense personal importance to me and have become staples of my vernacular (as they have within the Roothead circles in which I travel). The feelings they each evoke are similar in intensity but vastly different in vibe. Each feeling is indescribable but, once felt, inseparable from my essential state of being.

Welcome to the Rust side, my friend.

Rusted was a collective of prophets. Even though this song was recorded many years ago, it's clearly about the glory of vaping synthetic weed.

I beg you to listen to it, my friend. You will be transmogrified by the Root, elevated to states of being you had never before dreamed of. What may have once sounded to you like the marble-mouthed scatting of a hippie burnout will morph into (tooooooooke) the ululations of a sage.

I had a friend who was a Rusted Root fan in high school. We were driving around getting high and I was like "can we listen to something else? I really don't like the lyrics." And she was offended, like, "what's so bad about seemoobadeeyah?"

how's life, Thursday, 19 July 2018 15:04 (one year ago) link

it was a struggle but i went with "seemoobadeeyah"

princess of hell (BradNelson), Thursday, 19 July 2018 15:05 (one year ago) link

lot to think about...in fact even the name itself is such a contradiction...Rusted Root...I mean roots are parts of plants, not made of metal, so how could a root rust?
I don't know, just a lot to think about....

listened to this song a couple times again just now, and i can't figure out which lyrics he's referring to cause all the lyrics kinda sound like "seemoobadeeyah" or "oombayseeyou"

Sounds good, check. Feels right, check. What more do you need? Phonetic spelling is just, like, a construct man. A wisp. A phantom. A contradiction. Not unlike...a rusted root.

I find it vaguely fascinating to consider the confluence of events that resulted in this band making it any further than the freshman dorm of the drummer's cousin who popped by one of their underattended shows with a tape recorder and later blew the minds of his suitemates after they heavily partook from a carton of whippets. Like, this was actually on the radio, nationwide.

i mainly associate this song with movie trailers in the '90s (*camera pans across mountainside as "send me on my way" plays and jonathan taylor thomas gets into some shenanigans*) and matilda

idk if that first impression is accurate, it's just the way the song lives in my memory xp

My wife and her sister worked in the same food coop as some of them, back in the 90s. I have been that close to genius.

It's been decades since I've heard this. It now sounds like U2's "Bad" played by the Talking Heads.

I'm pretty sure many of these vowels can't be properly transcribed in the absence of the "e with three dots" character, so I propose we suspend this poll until the Unicode Consortium stops ignoring the rightful demands of a certain lobby.

I appreciate their absolute nothing of a Wikipedia entry. These are the only two paragraphs, the rest is basically stats stuff -- discography, membership, etc.

Rusted Root is an American worldbeat rock band formed in 1990 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, by singer-guitarist Michael Glabicki, bassist Patrick Norman and percussionist Liz Berlin. The band got its start as the house band playing a weekly gig in Jack's Back Room on Pittsburgh's South Side. The band achieved fame in 1994 with its platinum-selling album When I Woke, which included the hit single "Send Me on My Way". The song has been featured prominently in many films and commercials. Rusted Root has sold more than three million albums.

The band is known for its fusion of acoustic, rock, world and other styles of music, with a strong percussion section that draws from African, Latin American, and Native American influences. Michael Glabicki has acknowledged the popular success of Peter Gabriel's 1986 album So as an influence on his decision to incorporate worldbeat into his own music. The band's lyrical content varies but often talks about Christianity and Judaism.

So, are you saying you feel a little bit of distance from the Rusted Root material, a lot of which was written when you were in your early 20s?

Yeah, there’s been moments on stage when I’m like, “What am I doing?” Like, “I don’t know what this is.” But, then, luckily, I’m fortunate enough that the music was so open-ended and wasn’t written about a certain time in my life. It was sort of like this collection of images and it was more tonal than it was lyrical. “Send Me on My Way” had “moobahdesee, moobahdeyah,” which aren’t even words, so now I can just sort of like adapt the tone to where I’m at now. It’s more ritualistic at this point for the audience and for myself, and improvising in it and opening it up, there’s a lot more in it to find.

əkoostik hookah released an album called 'dubbabuddah' in 1994, strengthing my increasing suspicion that jam band culture is underpinned by a pontypool-style virus which erodes the language centres of the brains of those affected

lowkey goatsed on the styx (bizarro gazzara), Saturday, 24 August 2019 20:07 (ten months ago) link

'dubbahbuddah' features an tune called - wait for it - "Harmonic Convergence", which is definitely in the upper echelon of mid-'90s Widespread Panic-adjacent ephemera. Imagine if your college classmate - the one equally adept with making hemp necklaces as they are with the way-too-nice guitar courtesy of their Big-Pharma executive dad - took the chord progression of the intro of Bowie's "Panic in Detroit" and made that into an entire song, with (of course) lots of harmonics.

I used to think it would be even better if they pushed the tempo a few BPM, ditched the adult-contempo piano for some thrashing solos on the acoustic - oh, sorry, əkoostik - guitar, added more percussion tracks, then tied it together with better backup vocals. However, there's no need for Hookah to do this, because I'm basically describing the Rusted Root song "Ecstasy".

Rusted Root - solving our least-salient problems since 1994.

Some people eventually sober up and realize that the ideas they had while under the influence of mind-altering substances weren't nearly as profound as they seemed at the time. Others keep the party going indefinitely and utilize their major label record contracts as a means of foisting those ill-informed thoughts and expressions upon the public-at-large. Rusted Root et al are basically the margins of a high school stoner's geometry notebook made flesh.
