Meningkat Tiga Metode DEFINISI Metode Tiga Naik Pola bullish candlestick yang digunakan untuk memprediksi kelanjutan dari uptrend saat ini. Pola ini terbentuk saat candlesticks memenuhi karakteristik berikut: 1. Lilin pertama dalam pola adalah candlestick putih panjang dalam uptrend yang ditentukan. 2. Serangkaian lilin bertubuh kecil bertubuh kecil yang berdagang dalam kisaran candlestick pertama. 3. Sebuah candlestick putih panjang menciptakan tinggi baru, yang menunjukkan bahwa bullish kembali mengendalikan arah. BREAKING DOWN Rising Three Methods Serangkaian candlestick bertubuh kecil dianggap sebagai periode konsolidasi sebelum uptrend mampu melanjutkan. Pola ini penting karena menunjukkan pedagang bahwa penjual masih belum memiliki keyakinan yang cukup untuk membalikkan tren dan digunakan oleh beberapa trader aktif sebagai sinyal untuk menambah posisi mereka. Lagu ini adalah komentar ketenaran. Dengan garis, Ketika semua orang mencintaiku, saya tidak akan pernah kesepian, penandatangan utama Adam Duritz menyatakan - dengan lebih dari sekedar sentuhan sarkasme - ketenaran itu akan membuat segalanya lebih baik (tidak pernah sepi diulang untuk mengantarkan pesan: Orang ini Adalah delusional). Ketika menjadi hit pertama bagi band ini, Duritz tiba-tiba dikenali di seantero Amerika, yang ia temukan tidak nyaman. Ketenaran yang baru ditemukan mengirimnya ke dalam funk yang berkepanjangan tiba-tiba dia mendapati dirinya menyanyikan sebuah lagu tentang memimpikan ketenaran saat dia sangat pahit tentang hal itu. Dengan lagu yang beresonansi, dia menjadi enggan menyanyikannya. Duritz berhenti menulis lebih dari setahun, dan album kedua Counting Crows, Recovering the Satellites. Bukankah dirilis sampai tiga tahun setelah debut mereka. Melihat kembali lagu tersebut dalam wawancara kami tahun 2013 dengan Adam Duritz. Dia menjelaskan bahwa meskipun bodoh jika menganggap ketenaran akan memecahkan masalah Anda, sulit untuk ditolak. Kata Duritz: Seharusnya kau melihat pria itu: Ketika semua orang mencintaiku, aku tidak akan pernah kesepian. Anda seharusnya tahu itu tidak benar. Untuk satu hal, tidak ada yang namanya semua orang mencintaiku. Tidak ada yang tahu Anda dalam kasus itu. Jadi aku tahu itu tidak akan terjadi seperti itu. Tapi Anda tetap menginginkannya: Anda ingin kehidupan menjadi lebih mudah, Anda ingin menjadi bintang rock sehingga lebih mudah untuk berbicara dengan seorang gadis. Orang gila yang sama duduk di sana bersama gadis itu nanti. Jadi tidak memperbaiki semuanya. Jones adalah Marty Jones, teman vokalis Adam Duritz. Sebelum Duritz bergabung dengan Counting Crows, mereka berada di sebuah band yang disebut The Himalayans. Ini ditulis oleh vokalis Adam Duritz dan gitaris David Bryson (tiga anggota band lainnya juga mendapat kredit komposer). Pada sebuah episode dari Pendeta VH1. Adam menjelaskan: Ini benar-benar lagu tentang temanku Marty dan aku. Suatu malam kami pergi untuk menyaksikan ayahnya bermain, ayahnya adalah seorang pemain gitar Flamenco yang tinggal di Spanyol (David Serva), dan dia berada di San Francisco dalam misi tersebut. Bermain dengan rombongan Flamenco lamanya. Dan setelah pertunjukan, kami semua pergi ke bar ini yang disebut New Amsterdam di San Francisco di Columbus dan kami benar-benar mabuk. Dan Marty dan aku duduk di bar sambil menatap kedua gadis itu, berharap ada jalan lain untuk bisa berbicara dengan mereka, tapi kami terlalu pemalu. Kami terus bercanda satu sama lain bahwa jika kita adalah bintang rock besar, bukan pecundang, musisi beranggaran rendah, ini akan mudah. Saya pulang malam itu dan saya menulis lagu tentang hal itu. Aku bercanda tentang apa tentang, cerita itu. Tapi itu benar-benar sebuah lagu tentang semua impian dan semua hal yang membuat Anda ingin melakukan apa pun yang merebut hati Anda, entah itu bintang rock atau menjadi dokter atau apalah. Hal-hal berjalan dari semua hal ini yang telah saya sembunyikan dalam diri saya hingga saya ingin bertemu dengan anak perempuan karena saya bosan tidak dapat melakukannya. Ini adalah banyak hal, tentang semua mimpi itu, tapi juga semacam peringatan karena tentang betapa sesat Anda mungkin tentang beberapa hal itu dan betapa berongganya mereka juga. Seperti karakter dalam lagu yang terus berkata, Ketika semua orang mencintaiku, aku tidak akan pernah kesepian, dan kamu seharusnya tahu bahwa itu bukan jalannya. Aku tahu itu saat itu juga. Dan ini adalah lagu tentang mimpiku. Duritz kemudian mengungkapkan bahwa pria di bar yang mendapatkan gadis-gadis itu adalah Kenney Dale Johnson, yang merupakan drummer Chris Isaaks. Banyak orang mengira Mr. Jones adalah referensi karakter Bob Dylan dalam lagu Ballad of Thin Man. Dylan mengatakan bahwa saya ingin menjadi Bob Dylan, Mr. Jones berharap dia adalah seseorang yang sedikit lebih funky. The Beatles memang menyebut karakter Bob Dylans dalam lagu mereka Yer Blues. Garis itu Merasa sangat bunuh diri, sama seperti Dylans Mr. Jones. Adam Duritz: Ini adalah lagu yang telah disalahartikan sangat, untuk sedikitnya. Saya pikir orang terlalu sering mencari simbolisme dalam lagu saat mereka lebih sederhana dari penampilan mereka. Ini, khususnya, jauh lebih sederhana daripada yang harus dilihat banyak orang. Saya telah mendengar semuanya dari sini tentang beberapa pria blues kuno yang mengajari saya untuk bermain musik, yang sama sekali menggelikan, tapi seperti fantasi film somebodys. Saya juga pernah mendengar tentang penisku, yang bahkan lebih menggelikan. Saat kami melakukan wawancara untuk Rolling Stone. Aku berjalan dengan David Wilde ke Musee dOrsay di Paris suatu hari dan hal pertama yang terjadi adalah kedua anak ini berlari menghampiri kami dan berkata, Hei Youre orang dari Counting Crows, benar Dan aku berkata, yeah. Dan dia berkata, Apakah Tuan Jones tentang penis Anda, saya ingin membunuh orang itu karena saya tahu di mana itu akan berakhir, yang merupakan paragraf pertama artikel di Rolling Stone. Ini adalah single pertama yang dirilis oleh Counting Crows dan juga hit terbesar mereka. Nama band mengacu pada frase Counting Crows yang berarti tidak ada gunanya, seperti dalam, Itu sama berharganya dengan menghitung gagak. Saran kredit: Robb - Pittsburgh, PA Semua anggota band adalah penggemar besar grup Big Star. Saat membawakan lagu ini di Saturday Night Live. Duritz mengubah garis Saya Ingin menjadi Bob Dylan untuk Saya Ingin Menjadi Alex Chilton. Alex Chilton adalah vokalis Big Star, dan Alex Chilton adalah nama lagu The Replacements. Dalam lagu Replacements mereka menyebutnya sebagai An tak terlihat dengan suara yang sangat terlihat. Saran pujian: Steve - Chino Hills, CA Lagu ini mengacu pada seorang wanita menari bernama Maria: Potong Maria, tunjukkan salah satu dari mereka tarian Spanyol. Karakter ini muncul dalam banyak lagu mereka. Dia adalah subjek utama single kedua mereka, Round Here: Maria mengatakan bahwa dia sekarat, melalui pintu depan saya melihat dia menangis, dan Maria datang dari Nashville dengan sebuah koper di tangannya. Di Mrs. Potters Lullabye, Duritz bernyanyi, ada sepotong Maria dalam setiap lagu yang saya nyanyikan. Dia juga disebutkan di latar belakang menulis di sampul Agustus Dan Segalanya Sesudahnya. Identitas Maria tidak pernah terungkap, yang membuat banyak orang percaya bahwa dia bukan orang sungguhan, tapi simbol untuk kesepian, keinginan, atau sesuatu yang serupa. Saran pujian: Alden - College Park, MD Seperti beberapa hit besar pada pertengahan 90an, lagu ini tidak dirilis sebagai single di Amerika, yang menyimpannya dari chart Billboard Hot 100, namun berarti bahwa penggemar harus membeli keseluruhan Album untuk mendengarnya Taktiknya berhasil, dengan penjualan Agustus dan Segalanya Setelah mencapai 7 juta. Lagu ini mencapai 5 di tangga lagu Billboard's Airplay, yang diintegrasikan ke dalam Hot 100 pada tahun 1998. Lagu hit lainnya dari era yang dirilis dengan nada sebagai single antara lain Dont Speak oleh No Doubt and Torn oleh Natalie Imbruglia. Duritz dituduh mengangkat sha-la-la-la-la dari klasik Van Morrisons Brown Eyed Girl. Yang jauh dari kebenaran, dia mengatakan kepada Entertainment Weekly. Saya sudah mendapat banyak flack ini, katanya. Saya melemparkan satu sha la la sebagai lelucon yang tercatat. Hal berikutnya yang saya ketahui adalah kedatangan kedua Cowboy Belfast sebagai julukan Morrison. Saya tidak mengerti Saya bisa melihat dari mana saya belajar dari nyanyiannya. Tapi semua penulis lain melompat ke sana sebagai referensi yang mudah. Komentar: 59 Saya selalu menganggap Mr. Jones sebagai tipe yang jahat. Anda tahu siapa yang menjadi sahabat terbaik dan memiliki apa yang Anda sebut sebagai niat terbaik namun membantu atau memungkinkan Anda untuk menyesatkan dengan benar Secara lisan, ini memiliki pengertian spiritual atau metafisik dengan lirik Mr. Jones dan saya menatap ke masa depan dan saling memberi tahu dongeng. Sebagian besar seperti perjalanan yang menyenangkan tentang dewa dan makna Ricky Nelson yang saya yakini. Ketika semua orang mencintaiku, aku tidak akan pernah kesepian dengan baik bagaimana dengan kalian mencintai dirimu sendiri cukup untuk menyadari tidak ada yang akan kesepian. Ketakutan rahasia semua adalah sendirian. Seperti lagu gliserin dari periode waktu yang sama dengan semak. Kita hidup di roda di mana semua orang mencuri saat Anda menyadari seperti Strawberry Fields. Tidak ada yang bisa digantungi dengan benar Hidup itu mudah dengan mata setengah tertutup, salah paham dengan semua yang Anda lihat. Menjadi sulit untuk menjadi seseorang tapi semuanya berhasil. John Doe - Tulsa, Ok Apakah ada yang tahu tentang penyanyi back-up yang bisa didengar di paruh terakhir lagu Great susunan vokal mereka. Lagu abadi Bocknobby - Toronto, On Biarkan saya mengawali komentar ini dengan pernyataan berikut: Saya mengerti bahwa ini bukan maksud yang dimaksudkan oleh penulis, hanya bagaimana nyanyiannya berbicara kepada saya. Yang mengatakan, here goes nothing. Saya baru saja mencari iman, dan menyadari bahwa keyakinan saya sendiri paling lemah. Saya berusaha keras untuk menemukan kebenaran namun terus-menerus terganggu oleh keinginan duniawi saya dan meskipun saya sering merasa bahwa Tuhan berbicara kepada saya, dalam keangkuhan saya, saya akhirnya berusaha untuk memuji kemuliaan-Nya. Lagu ini terasa seperti cerita itu bagiku. Saya sedang duduk di sebuah bar sambil minum dan berkabung setelah seorang wanita, ketika semangat Yesus (Mr. Jones) mulai berbicara kepada hati seorang wanita bernama Maria (Mary). Dia mulai menari saat ayah Mr. Jones (Tuhan) memainkan musik (gitar) untuknya, dan tiba-tiba saya menyadari betapa cantiknya dirinya - dan saya berharap bisa menjadi cantik itu. Jadi saya berjuang dengan kesunyian dalam pikiran saya sendiri (tidak adanya roh kudus dalam hidup saya) melalui malam metaforis sampai fajar (kesadaran bahwa saya membutuhkan Kristus dalam hidup saya). Jadi saya meminta Maria untuk terus menari untuk saya, sehingga saya dapat belajar bagaimana meniru pengabdiannya yang menyenangkan di dalam Tuhan - dan meminta Yesus untuk memberi saya botol (isi saya dengan Roh Kudus). Saya memohon kepada Tuhan untuk percaya kepada saya, karena saya menyadari bahwa saya tidak benar-benar mempercayai apapun (termasuk saya sendiri), dan saya ingin menjadi seseorang yang percaya. Yesus dan saya berjalan bersama dan berbicara tentang hal-hal yang saya pikir saya percaya (dongeng), dan kita menatap wanita cantik, Dia dengan semangat mereka, saya di tubuh mereka. Naluri saya mengatakan kepada saya bahwa mereka melihat Dia, tapi kesombongan saya mengatakan tidak, tidak, mereka menatap saya. Saya menatap ke dalam cahaya yang datang dari dua arah yang berbeda (lampu fisik dari benda-benda duniawi, dan cahaya spiritual dari Kebenaran Allah), saya tahu bahwa ketika semua orang mengasihi Anda (Kristus) tidak akan pernah ada yang kesepian lagi. Saya melukis gambar hidup saya, saya melukis diri saya dengan warna biru (sedih) dan merah (marah) dan hitam (kegelapan, potensi jahat) dan abu-abu (berpotensi untuk kebaikan, cacat oleh sifat berdosa saya). Saya tahu bahwa semua hal itu diperlukan untuk pertumbuhan hidup saya, dan karena itu bermakna dan indah, tapi kelabu (potensi saya untuk kebaikan) adalah aspek favorit saya dari diri saya sendiri. Saya tahu bahwa jika saya berdiri di hadapan orang-orang dan berbicara, bahwa saya akan menjadi simbol bagi mereka, namun saya belum dapat melakukan apa yang benar. Jika bisa, saya akan menemukan seseorang yang bisa melihat keindahan ciptaan melalui kekacauan realitas dan belajar dari mereka (seperti Picasso), jika saya dapat melakukan itu, saya akan berdiri di hadapan Tuhan dan setiap orang dan bermainlah Gitar, sambil tetap mengingat ketidaksempurnaan saya sendiri. Yesus dan saya, melihat masa depan hidup saya, kita menatap wanita cantik (sama seperti di atas) dan sekali lagi saya mencoba untuk memuji kemuliaanNya. Saya berdiri di depan kerumunan (dalam sorotan), akhirnya saya tahu bagaimana cara berbicara dengan benar (gitar abu-abu saya), tapi saya gagal lagi karena saya mencoba untuk menerima pujian lagi dengan mengatakan bahwa ketika semua orang mencintai AKU, saya tidak akan pernah menjadi Kesepian saya tidak akan pernah kesepian tidak saya tidak akan pernah, kesepian Semakin saya mencoba meyakinkan diri sendiri bahwa saya akan menjadi orang yang membuat diri saya bahagia, semakin saya menjadi sadar bahwa itu hanya akan datang melalui Tuhan. Saya ingin sekali berbicara tentang Kebenaran dengan otoritas sejati (seperti singa), sepertinya semua orang di sekitar saya puas lulus sebagai kucing (hanya kemunculan otoritas), kita semua ingin menjadi hebat - adalah sifat kita untuk mencari kebesaran. - Tapi kita semua memiliki alasan yang berbeda (beberapa untuk membantu diri mereka sendiri, beberapa untuk membantu orang lain, beberapa untuk melayani Tuhan). Sekali lagi saya memohon kepada Tuhan untuk percaya kepada saya, karena saya masih tidak benar-benar percaya akan kebebasan Kristus (sebagaimana dibuktikan dengan kegagalan saya yang terus-menerus untuk memberi dia pujian atas berkat saya), dan saya ingin menjadi seseorang yang dapat dipercaya orang. Yesus dan saya melewati jalan-jalan kotor bario bersama-sama, kita masih menatap wanita cantik, tapi sekarang akhirnya saya mengerti bahwa mereka sempurna untuk Kristus, dan saya tahu bahwa harus ada seseorang yang tepat untuk saya. Saya ingin menjadi seorang pendongeng yang menyentuh kehidupan masyarakat (seperti bob Dylan), Kristus berharap Dia adalah seseorang yang sedikit lebih funky (begitu banyak orang membayangkan Kristus tegang, tapi Dia berjalan bersama kita bahkan melalui rintangan kehidupan kita), Tuhan berkata Dia (ah, Nak) bahwa Dia sama asyiknya, karena setiap orang mengasihi Dia. Kristus dan saya melihat video hidup saya bersama, ketika saya menontonnya bersama Dia, saya ingin bisa melihat langsung ke mata saya sendiri sambil menatap tanpa malu-malu. Kita semua ingin menjadi hebat - kita hanya tidak tahu bagaimana mendapatkannya, atau bahkan mengapa kita menginginkannya, tapi ketika saya menjadi seperti Kristus, dan semua orang mencintaiku, akhirnya aku akan bahagia seperti saya. Yesus dan saya, akan menjadi bintang besar. Saya harap penafsiran ini tidak menyinggung siapapun - saya tidak bermaksud demikian. Saya berharap jika Anda mencari seperti saya bahwa lagu ini berbicara kepada Anda sedalam yang saya lakukan dan membantu Anda dalam perjalanan Anda. Keith - Goose Creek, Sc Saya selalu melihat lagu ini memiliki makna yang lebih dalam dan bahwa penulis membenci hal itu sedikit mengecewakan. Apapun, saya rasa para seniman tidak harus lebih valid daripada pendengar sehingga saya tidak bisa memberikannya: Lagunya sederhana, hanya tentang aspirasi, dan kesadaran bahwa hidup lebih dari sekedar kesuksesan profesional. Tapi saya juga mendapatkan getaran yang mengomentari Tuhan melalui Mr. Jones. Saya tidak bisa memilih mengapa, begitulah cara saya menafsirkannya. Kyle - St. Louis, Il um. Maria adalah nama spanyol Menari flamenco adalah spanyol. Jadi kalau maria selalu ada di lagu mereka kenapa tidak menjadikannya nama penari. Dan ayahnya yang bermain gitar adalah teman bermain Adams sambil bermain sambil minum. Duhhhh Liv - Long Island, Ny Great song. Seluruh album ini hebat. Saya pertama kali masuk ke dalam gagak sekitar tahun 1996. Bertahun-tahun sebelum saya mengambil beberapa pelajaran gitar tapi saya tidak pernah benar-benar terjebak dengannya. Saya mengambil gitar saya lagi. Pada musim panas tahun 96 dan satu lagu yang akan saya dengar banyak adalah Mr. Jones. Saya menyadari bahwa itu telah dirilis 3 tahun sebelumnya, tetapi karena saya sekarang kembali bermain gitar, saya melihatnya lebih banyak setiap kali radio tersebut masuk. Saya mencintai Rythm dari lagu ini Pada musim gugur itulah aku telah mempelajari akord-akord. Ini adalah satu dari beberapa lagu yang pernah saya pelajari hanya dengan mendengarkannya. Begitu saya mengetahui akordnya, irama itulah yang paling saya latih. Saya sekarang telah melihat pelajaran untuk lagu ini di internet dan sering kali mereka memainkannya dengan gitar akustik. Lagu ini terdengar oke pada akustik tapi kedengarannya terbaik saat dimainkan seperti itu. Ada di album dengan gitar listrik yang menggunakan nada bersih. Ini adalah salah satu lagu terbaik dari 90s.What sebuah album yang hebat juga. Brian - Boston, Ma Dont tahu apakah ini telah diposting, tapi quotNew Amsterdamquot sekarang disebut quotInternational Sports Clubquot dan terletak di 1000 Columbus Avenue (titik temu dengan Taylor Street) di San Francisco.CA. Rupanya mereka melakukan happy hour dengan bir murah. Duduk di kursi Adam Duritz adalah opsional. Gazza - Buenos Aires, Argentina Orang, satu pertanyaan dalam kalimat: quotShe menari saat ayahnya bermain gitar.quot - Ayah siapa mereka berbicara tentang Bukankah seharusnya menjadi momok yang baik? Awalnya saya pikir penari Flamenco bisa menjadi anak dari ini. Quothis fatherquot, tapi kemudian Mr Jones tidak akan berbicara dengan seorang pria, benar SO penari flamenco adalah seorang gadis (juga karena tarian dia. Dia bertanya-tanya). Dapatkah seseorang membantu saya memahami ayah siapa lagu yang berbicara tentang ayah Tuan Jones. Heloisa Argentina - Crdoba, Argentina Tuhan lagu ini menjadi sangat tua sangat cepat Clay - Henagar, Al Saya pikir Mr. Jones adalah minuman dalam lagu tersebut. Xavier - Schenectady, Ny Nah, apapun yang Anda pilih, namanya, Mr. Jones adalah nama umum - bukan siapa-siapa. Nama yang umum akan berubah sewaktu seseorang mencapai ketenaran dan musik itu sendiri terkadang mengubah namanya saat pria itu menjadi seorang musisi terkenal. Terkadang musisi akan menyimpan namanya sendiri, tapi cukup sering berubah setelah heshe mencapai ketenaran. Atau jarang ada nama masing-masing nama band yang diketahui. Misalnya, kita tahu grup yang memainkan lagu tersebut sebagai quotCounting Crowsquot, tapi saya masih tidak bisa memberi tahu Anda masing-masing nama anggota band indvidual.- Semoga bisa membantu. Chad - Wilmington, De Untuk waktu yang lama, saya pikir Mr. Jones adalah sebuah metafora untuk kesepian. Masih lagu yang hebat Brad - Topeka, Ks Heres sebuah blog abou the New Amsterdam fitur dalam lagu: frazing.wordpress20081217google-streeview Fraser - Stirling, Inggris Saya pikir jelas bahwa lagu ini adalah tentang saat-saat ketika berpikir bahwa jika Anda akan menjadi Kaya dan terkenal, Anda akan mendapatkan semua yang Anda inginkan. Semua orang yang mengaku sebagai penggemar Counting Crows tahu bahwa penyanyi tersebut segera menyadari bahwa ini bukan kasusnya. Itulah mengapa, dalam versi live, liriknya berubah setiap saat, menghilangkan keadaan moodnya. Jan - Antwerp, - Saya sedikit kecewa karena Mr. Jones hanyalah teman yang diminumnya di bar. Saya selalu mengira Tuan Jones adalah seorang yang pintar karena iri hati dan keinginan seperti Im Jones untuk sesuatu atau mengikuti Jones. Di Jr. High School saya mempunyai teman bahwa saya akan menyelinap pergi dan merokok bersama dan dia akan selalu mengatakan Im Jones untuk orang yang merokok, Mr. Jones Today. Untuk menjawab posting lain, ada beberapa lagu bagus tentang heroin meski ini bukan satu. Bunga Mati oleh Batu adalah favorit saya tapi CCKMP oleh Steve Earle, White Freight Liner oleh Townes Van Zandt dan The Needle dan Damage Done oleh Neil Young adalah beberapa yang lain. Steve - Charlotte, Sc Maria adalah Adam Duritz seperti Mary kepada Bruce Springsteen. Ekristheh - Halath, Amerika Serikat Stuart, saya tidak tahu lagu Nazaret yang Anda maksudkan, jadi mungkin saja garisnya jadi Anda ingin menjadi bintang rocknroll. Dengarkan saja apa yang saya katakan Dapatkan gitar listrik dan luangkan waktu dan belajarlah Bermain muncul di dalamnya, tapi garis itu berasal dari lagu Jadi Anda Ingin Menjadi Bintang Rock and Roll oleh Byrds. Mungkin saja Nazaret mengutip lagu itu. Michael - Pittsburgh, Pa ok, jadi bagaimana sih lagu ini bisa jadi tentang hing dong hello jesus thats hanya aneh, ive tahu lagu ini selamanya dan cara saya menafsirkannya begini: cowok punya teman yang lebih waspada daripada dia dan keduanya Ingin menjadi terkenal dan mendapatkan anak perempuan, saya tahu ada lebih banyak cara untuk menafsirkan lagu, tapi serius, penis Sierra - Grand Forks, Nd saya benar-benar bertemu Marty Jones saat menulis artikel majalah tentang pencarian Maria. Dia adalah orang yang sangat keren yang menceritakan latar belakang Mr. Jones dalam cerita: 801mag.orgcsContentServerchildpagename801Mag2FJRNContentC2FArticleDetailcJRNContentCp1165270039399pagenameJRN2F801Wrappercid1175372067481 Steve - New York, Ny Suara vokalis Counting Crows Adam Duritz adalah instrumen yang luar biasa. Mr Jones memperkenalkan penggemar musik ke fasilitas luar biasa Duritz dalam mendongeng dalam konteks sebuah lagu. Hanya mencoba untuk bernyanyi bersama pada Mr Jones dan setelah Anda selesai terengah-engah, Anda menyadari betapa fenomenal ini kinerja. Bertrand - Paris, Prancis Saya baru mendaftar hanya untuk memprotes sebuah komentar yang ditulis CARA di atas: Lagu tidak perlu rumit untuk menjadi baik. Lihat saja Rick Nelsons Garden Party. Sederhana dan murni, tapi flippin rock n roll yang hebat. - Tony, Boston, MA Penulis poinnya adalah untuk mengatakan bagaimana tidak ada arti yang lebih dalam untuk sebuah lagu agar bagus (yang saya setujui, karena saya menyukai lirik yang berarti) tapi sayangnya contoh pesta kebun tidak berhasil. - Pesta kebun dikemas dengan makna tersembunyi. Its semua tentang bagaimana kecewa Rick Nelson ketika ia bermain di sebuah konser dan tidak ada yang tertarik pada materi barunya, yang tidak SEBENARNYA tentang pergi ke pesta kebun sama sekali Its dikemas dengan metafora dan referensi Tapi kembali ke Mr.Jones, cinta lagu itu , Sebuah pukulan di seluruh dunia, saya pernah mendengarnya sesekali di klub-klub di Spanyol ketika saya tinggal di sana, dan itu adalah 2001-2005 Tidak percaya ppl berpikir tentang penisnya, saya bahkan tidak mengerti bagaimana hal itu akan berhasil. Charlie - Durham, Inggris Lagu ini tidak dihapus karena banyak orang masih menyukai lagu ini. Saya tahu saya melakukannya dari Counting Crows. Natalie - Chiago, Il Saya tidak tahu tentang Anda orang tapi saya suka lagu ini. J - Jackson, Ga aku tidak percaya lagu isnt tentang nya (dihapus). Saya benar-benar berpikir selama 13 tahun terakhir ini. Cory - Morden, Kanada Meskipun ini tentang Marty Jones dalam lagu ini, Bob Dylans Mr Jones dikabarkan akan menjadi Brian Jones dari Rolling Stones Ty - Indianapolis, In Jika Anda mendengarkan versi di Across A Wire - Live in New York album, lagu dimulai dengan lirik Jadi Anda ingin menjadi bintang rocknroll Hanya mendengarkan sekarang untuk apa yang saya katakan Dapatkan gitar listrik dan ambil beberapa waktu dan belajar bermain. Lirik ini dipinjam langsung dari lagu Nazaret Telegram. Stuart - Liverpool Inggris Semua orang terus tentang Maria menjadi orang yang nyata, tapi Adam Duritz cukup jelas mengatakan bahwa Shes bukan Shes yang bermaksud mewakili gadis. Tapi dia tampil dalam banyak lagu, dan lirik di sampul album adalah lagu Agustus dan Everything After yang hanya diputar secara live. Nicole xx Nicole - Derby, Inggris aw lagu ini sangat imut dan liriknya tumpul jadi berhenti mencoba menafsirkannya Kayla - Cary, Nc lagu ini juga dinyanyikan oleh Hidden In Plain View namun tidak di salah satu cd mereka yang mereka miliki. terbuat. Stephanie - Moreno Valley, Ca Ini hanyalah salah satu lagu hebat yang akan selalu dibawa keluar dari konteks. Adam Duritz menulis lagu ini sebagai kenangan akan percakapan yang menyenangkan dia dan temannya, Marty (Mr.) Jones pernah berada di sebuah bar. Sederhana seperti itu. Tidak lebih, tidak kurang. Sebuah lagu tidak perlu rumit untuk menjadi baik. Lihat saja Rick Nelsons Garden Party. Sederhana dan murni, tapi flippin rock n roll yang hebat. Tony - Boston, Ma Untuk mengatur ini lurus, idenya adalah untuk mendapatkan banyak anak ayam dan teman atau apapun dengan menjadi terkenal, seperti berada di band rock atau sejenisnya. Lagu yang bagus dengan lirik yang bagus, mudah dimainkan di band. Jo-c - Lima, Peru Saya pikir komentar heroin berulang ini adalah sebuah lelucon. Ini muncul di kolom komentar hampir setiap lagu yang telah saya teliti di Songfacts. Jika seseorang memposting songfact untuk Veni, Creator Spiritus atau Sister Janet Meads The Lords Prayer, seseorang pasti akan berkomentar Benar-benar sebuah lagu heroin. Paling tidak, begitulah menurut saya. Ekristheh - Halath, Amerika Serikat Saya merekomendasikan agar semua orang yang menikmati musik yang dinyanyikan oleh Adam dan didukung oleh tempramen band yang indah, paling baik didengar melalui Across A Wire - Live In New York City. Seperti yang dikatakan Adam paling baik di antara lagu-lagu yang memainkan beberapa lagu listrik ini karena mereka telah berubah banyak dan karena saya pikir kita benar-benar tahu bagaimana cara memainkannya sekarang. Jadi jika Anda ingin mendengar arti dari lagu yang Anda cintai (terutama Mr Jones), album ini merangkum begitu banyak niat saat ini. Anda benar-benar bisa merasakan suaranya bergetar karena emosi dan memperdalam dengan perasaan, itu mungkin hanya imajinasi saya tapi saya benar-benar bisa mendengar semua yang ingin mereka katakan. Saya ingin melihat lebih banyak album seperti ini. Sehubungan dengan Mr Jones, mengapa Anda memasukkan sebuah lagu ke detramen dengan menjelaskannya melalui dia yang menamai penisnya atau memberi kreativitas besar pada obat-obatan terlarang, biar menjadi seperti apa dan temukan keindahan dalam gambar yang diciptakannya. Pada akhir hari saya pikir intepretasi mengatakan lebih banyak tentang orang yang menafsirkannya daripada orang yang benar-benar lagu itu sebenarnya. Lisa - Perth, Australia Saya selalu mengira lagu itu tentang penisnya. Cherie - Ny, Ny saya setuju dengan siapapun yang mengatakan bahwa ini adalah salah satu lagu yang hebat karena Anda dapat menempatkan diri dan pengalaman Anda ke dalam lagu. Saya harus mengatakan bahwa mengatakan lagu ini adalah tentang heroin sedikit peregangan - terutama karena tidak ada bukti dalam lagu untuk mendukungnya. Tentu, ini berbicara tentang gitarnya, tapi itulah satu-satunya koneksi yang bisa saya buat antara argumen dan lagunya. Beth - Livonia, Mi Lagu yang bagus dengan lirik yang bagus favorit saya. Saya akan melukis gambar saya, Cat sendiri dengan warna biru dan merah dan hitam dan abu-abu Semua warna yang indah sangat sangat berarti. Dan - Columbia, Md Lucu, lagu ini membuatku teringat teman baikku saat masih muda. Pada saat kita benar-benar mulai mendengarkannya, banyak lirik menunjukkan kehidupan nyata kita. Empat baris pertama menunjuk pada pacar berambut pirangku (saat itu) dan juga gadis berambut hitam temanku berkencan, yang juga seorang penari. Dan garis Dia menari sementara ayahnya bermain gitar juga membuat kita memikirkan fakta bahwa ada familes yang dalam bisnis untuk waktu yang singkat. Aku benar-benar bisa masuk, tapi lagu yang bagus yang pastinya akan menjadi favoritku untuk sementara. John - Cleveland, Tn Lagu ini sangat dalam bagi saya. Ini mengingatkan saya pada perasaan saya saat anak perempuan dan saya putus, pada saat bersamaan gadis paman saya juga meninggalkannya. Kami berdua hanya berkumpul bersama untuk mabuk dan berbicara tinggi tentang wanita kami. Lagu ini adalah tentang dua orang yang merasa sendirian dan hanya membutuhkan seseorang untuk peduli dengan mereka. Untung pamanku dan aku berdua kembali bersama gadis-gadis kami. Lagu ini memungkinkan saya melihat betapa sepinya kita bisa berakhir. Dante - Di sini, Cina ini sebenarnya lagu yang sangat bagus. Sementara semua orang di sekitar mereka melompat ke kereta pop pop komersial, orang-orang ini memiliki keberanian untuk keluar dengan sebuah lagu yang benar-benar bermakna pada liriknya. Untuk ini, saya bertepuk tangan. Matt - Millbrae, Ca Saya pikir Mr Jones adalah Duritz mengubah ego dan ketika dia benar-benar mabuk atau tinggi atau apapun yang diungkapkan, itulah intepretasi saya untuk lagu itu. Fabian - Nogales, Meksiko lagu tersebut sepertinya juga bisa ikut bersamaan dengan drama kematian seorang salesman. Ben - Weymouth, Ma saya mengerti bagaimana lagu ini seharusnya tentang teman adams, tapi saya memiliki interperitasi yang berbeda. Aku tahu itu bukan apa yang adam dimaksudkan, tapi saya pikir itu sebagian mengapa mr. Jones adalah lagu yang luar biasa: setiap orang dapat menemukan cara untuk membuat lagu ini sangat pribadi bagi diri mereka sendiri. Namun lumpuh beberapa interperatations, jika mereka berarti sesuatu untuk orang itu, maka jadilah aku berharap ini dipertimbangkan Michelle - Montreal, Amerika Serikat saya dulu berpikir lagu ini adalah tentang seorang skizofrenia, yang menjadi orang lain saat dia kurang percaya diri. , Dan akhirnya percaya semua orang menyukai alter ego ini lebih dari dia. Ada versi akustik yang luar biasa dari ini, adalah untuk mati, kecuali kenyataan bahwa mereka menyingkirkan garis kesukaan saya: Mr. Jones dan mr, menatap videonya saat melihat televisi yang ingin saya lihat, menatapiku kembali. padaku. Pat - Montreal, Kanada Saya ingin tahu mengapa obat yang selalu dimiliki oleh lagu rock adalah pahlawan wanita. Ini bukan tentang pahlawan wanita. Saya sangat meragukan bahwa ada banyak lagu bagus tentang tokoh wanita. Brittany - Waverly, Ny Saya bertemu dengan Adam Duritiz pada tahun 200 ketika saya sedang bekerja di sebuah stasiun radio lokal, saya bertanya kepadanya tentang inspirasi untuk lagu ini dan Omaha. Ini tidak ada hubungannya dengan narkoba. MENGAPA, mengapa semua orang mengira Heroin adalah bassis untuk lagu ALL ROCK. Serriously, ketika seseorang mengatakan lagu ini adalah tentang heroin saya mengabaikan posting. Hei kamu tahu lagu itu, Selamat ulang tahun nya tentang Heroin. Ya mereka menulis tentang mengambil smack untuk pertama kalinya, Anda tahu ulang tahun Anda sebagai dan adict. Se betapa bodohnya suara Monty - Omaha, Ne aku mendengar satu teori dari seseorang yang menganggap Mr.Jones adalah merek minuman keras. Jadi jika Anda mendapatkan lirik itu sedikit salah, mungkin saya akan memberi saya sebotol Mr.Jones - dan kemudian ketika dia menyanyikan Mr. Jones untuk mengobrol dengan penari flamenco berambut hitam ini, dia benar-benar mabuk dan hanya minuman keras yang dibicarakannya. Hehe, tidak akan terlalu banyak memasukkannya ke dalam teori itu. Torbjrn - Trondheim, Norwegia apakah ada diantara kalian yang mendengar film wanita cantik. I dont kno ketika film atau lagu keluar tapi setelah saya melihat film saya yakin bahwa itu terhubung. Untuk satu, bar di mana mereka nongkrong adalah mr joness. Ketika mereka duduk di gedung itu, mereka berbicara tentang pria yang sedang jatuh cinta pada gadis itu dan dia bilang kita semua ingin somthing cantik. Nama filmnya adalah wanita cantik. Dan i dont kno persis di mana amsterdam baru tapi im cukup yakin yang di yankee teritory sehingga mungkin juga setting film. Ada lebih banyak hal tapi saya tidak melihat film ini dalam beberapa saat, ada orang lain yang melihat hubungan Katie - Royston, Ga Duritz juga mengganti Dave Lowery dari Cracker untuk Bob Dylan dalam pertunjukan TV lain, Duritz juga mengenakan kaos Cracker selama pertunjukan ini. Nick - Arlington Heights, saya tidak peduli dengan siapa dia mengatakannya. Mr Jones adalah Lester Bangs. Matt - Durham, Nh Adam tahu dia menatapku. Dan saya pergi dan berbicara (dan membuat diri saya sangat bodoh) dengan yang saya perhatikan. Tapi mungkin kalau aku jadi bintang rock. Marty - Eugene, atau ive membawa pasangan ini david yang percaya bahwa lagu Mr Jones oleh Counting Crows adalah sampul yang aneh demi crist. Saya harap ini dan entri lainnya di internet dan tvpublications sama akan membuatnya lurus. SONG yang BAIK dan ditulis oleh Adam Duritz dan Counting Crows Rod - Ipswich, Australia Saya menyukai gagasan Mr. Jones sebagai Adams alter ego. Saya pikir itu benar-benar menunjukkan perbedaan antara orang yang sadar, dan orang yang tinggi atau mabuk (Mr. Jones). Either way sebuah lagu yang bagus yang tidak pernah mendapat penghargaan yang pantas. Matt - St Charles, Mo jeffq yang diposting komentar pertama adalah obviosly bingung. Saya ingin tahu di mana Anda mendengar bahwa Adam memiliki kecanduan herion dan menggadaikan gitarnya sebelum pertunjukan. Anda tahu betapa konyolnya suara Anda Katy - Eden Prairie, Mn Ini tentang kecanduan heroin selebriti Adam Duritz. Jones adalah agennya, dan kesulitan menjadi pecandu heroin. Band ini diberi nama setelah hobi favoritnya saat terbang tinggi dari heroin yang menghitung gagak. Dia biasanya akan pion dari gitarnya untuk mendapatkan uang obat bius dan anggota band lainnya harus membelinya kembali sebelum setiap pertunjukan. Jeffq - Nekoosa, Wi Adam Duritz mengatakan pada VH1 Storytellers bahwa lagunya ditulis saat dia dan seorang teman sedang mendengarkan teman temannya (yang adalah pemain gitar flamenco) bermain di sebuah bar bernama New Amsterdam. Ada semua gadis cantik di bar ini, dan menari mengikuti musik. Jones dan Adam sedang minum dan berbicara tentang bagaimana mereka berani berbicara dengan wanita-wanita ini jika mereka terkenal. Mereka kemudian terus bermimpi tentang bagaimana semua masalah mereka akan terpecahkan jika mereka terkenal. Jeremy - Gonzales, La bisa menjadi apa yang dia inginkan tapi takut untuk mencoba Jaffa - Auckland, Selandia Baru Jones bisa berarti gairah, keasyikan, kecanduan atau keinginan. Mr Jones adalah penyanyi alt-ego. Siapa yang mendambakan ketenaran itu akan memberinya cinta dan kebahagiaan. Penyanyi ini tidak yakin bagaimana orang melihat dia, apakah mereka melihat dia yang sebenarnya atau ketenarannya. Shes melihatmu, kurasa tidak. Shes menatapku. Terima kasih kepada Bill karena telah menjelaskan hal ini kepada saya, sebuah lagu yang bagus Karen :-) Karen - Virginia Beach, Va Mr. Jones tidak terinspirasi oleh Mr. Jones dalam lagu Dylan. Its about Marty Jones one of Adams friends from the Bay Area. Check any Crows press ever to back this up. Richard - Nederland, Tx Could Mr. Jones be what the singer turns into when hes drunk. somebody check it. Pass me the bottle Mr. Jones.

The narrator, a young teenager, splits her time between caring for a drug-addicted mother and navigating her own desire for understanding. With no one to look after her, she finds herself enmeshed in her mothers lavish parties and becomes the object of affection of an older man. After discovering her father in an affair, she becomes obsessed with her fathers mistress. What follows is a sweet, but unseemly, relationship between the two females and a devastating tragedy that changes the family forever. Written in dark, lyrical prose, Rooms for Ghosts takes us on a journey that is rife with longing and confusion as the narrator searches for the love that seems to elude her. quotAuthor Terra Brigando plunges us into an experience where loneliness can result in going to the edge and wondering if there is a way back. The innocence of adolescence is demolished and the world turns in a very short time. Executed with graceful and memorable language, a textured and languid narrative, and compelling insight into the gnarly confusion of adolescence, Brigando layers the story delicately and deeply, plunging the reader into the truths and dares of this young girls search for love.quot --Elmaz Abinader, author of This House, My Bones quot Rooms for Ghosts is a riveting story about a fourteen-year-old girl undergoing unexpected rites of passage during a summer vacation that introduces her to drugs, alcohol, sex, and the inchoate longing that every teenager feels when she is not quite grownup, but no longer a child either. Brigando sets a blistering pace that never lets up. Her story is filled with glittering images and an envious sense of timing that belies the fact that this is her first novel. Ghosts is a dazzling coming of age narrative dense with stunning descriptions that are sometimes tender and loving, but sometimes shockingly brutal as well. Edgy, in your face, the author never holds back, never flinches, even though some timorous readers might wish she had.quot --Duff Brenna, AWP Novel Award winner for The Book of Mamie ABOUT THE AUTHOR Terra Brigando lives in Oakland, California.

A mad swordsman inside a poet-seer, McKinney dares to locate what resembles, in my reading, spirit laid bare. In this truly elegant book, the remnant of our language negotiates a shadow world--that space between life and death--which is life on this earth. Inside sword we find word, indeed. A truly courageous book. --Claudia Keelan, author of Missing Her quotJoshua McKinney tells of two masters: one who liked to write while walking in a place unblurred by interruption and one who preferred uneven ground. When I think of McKinneys work, I see him as the second master--clearing a new path, or, as Pound said of Whitman, the one who broke the new wood. In McKinneys post-bucolic interstitial landscape, flowers stand as ostiaries, the heat index reduces the Earths archives to ash, and the spirit trembles like a leaf. What I thought beautiful was what died astray. Though he leads us through foreboding realms of the imagination, McKinneys gentle-edged Taoist generosity is exceedingly redemptive, assuring, pointing us skyward and crying, look. Here is a poet who has earned the title of master. -- D.A. Powell, author of Useless Landscape, or a Guide for Boys quotIn an era of distress and shrillness, it takes courage and, more than courage, Grace, to speak out boldly. unguardedly, for Balance. In the literal body of these new poems, Joshua McKinney articulates the mortal grandeur and (this is more poignant than I can rightly say) the tragedy of Balance. McKinney simply will not relinquish either past or present, love or bereavement, intellect or animal anguish, merely to accommodate the shrill urgings of our moment. Mad Cursive is therefore, and shall remain, a heroic collection.quot --Donald Revell, author of The Bitter Withy quot Mad Cursive is an excellent use of poetry as a vehicle for real thought: a good read.quot --San Francisco Book Review, Sept. 2012 ABOUT THE AUTHOR Joshua McKinney is the author of two previous collections of poetry: Saunter . co-winner of the University of Georgia Press Poetry Series Open Competition in 2001, and The Novice Mourner, winner of the Dorothy Brunsman Poetry Prize in 2005.

SUDDEN DEATH OVER TIME Stories by John Rember ISBN: 978-1-877655-79-1, LCN: 2012938178 First Trade Paperback, 6 X 9, 146 pgs. 143.50 sh Front cover art: quotFind Your Rainbow,quot Diane Labombarge, courtesy Back cover art: quotSeamless Crows,quot Indigocrow, courtesy Title page collage: David Memmott, images courtesy iStockphoto Cover design: Kristin Summers, redbatdesign Interior design: David Memmott Sudden Death Over Time does what only good satire can--tear down the artificial and the irrelevant to get to what is human. The stories are funny, insightful, disturbing, sad, and always entertaining. They emerge from the uncertainty of our time, amid failing infrastructures, moral ambiguity, corruption, and tenured disinterest of an academic system that perhaps like our political system needs to slough its skin and renew itself every ten years as Thomas Jefferson once suggested. Rembers talent in bringing interesting characters to life and letting them stumble on their humanity in places at the same time common and extreme give these stories an energy that sparks on every page until they conflagrate into a controlled burn. quotJohn Rember tears your heart out and replaces it with his own. No one I know of comes close to his mastery of the short story. Read him and weep.quot --TIM SANDLIN, author of the GroVont Quartet quotI couldnt get enough of the stories in Sudden Death Over Time . John Rembers wit is as sharp as the edge of a well-hone ski and his prose is as smooth and perfect as a Deans finest scotch. Reading these stories made me feel as though Id come upon Richard Russo and Thomas McGuane swapping smart and wicked tales in front of a hot pub fire with cold drinks in hand. The book is that skillful, and that funny.quot --ALYSON HAGY, author of Ghosts of Wyoming quotRembers deft touches, the concrete language and careful craftsmanship he displays discloses a powerful writer at the summit of his game, a wordsmith who knows how to spin a yarn in such a winning way that those who read his stories are carried along with ineffable ease, perhaps seldom aware of the simple beauty of the style, the prose, its concision: never a word out of place, never a phrase without its distinctive, unfaltering Rember rhythm. Sudden Death Over Time is consummate literature--a dazzling achievement.quot --DUFF BRENNA, from his Introduction About the Author JOHN REMBER was born in Sun Valley, Idaho.

He makes this book a personal gift to every reader.quot --Rachel J. Richards, The Portland Book Review quotDuff Brenna is exploring--unsparingly, unflinchingly, but above all fairly, with balance and breathtaking honesty--the humanity of a group of people born into and continually creating a kind of hell in which they thrash around without a clue as to how to get out.quot --THOMAS E. KENNEDY, author of In the Company of Angels, and Fallling Sideways Read review in San Diegos East County Magazine quotWith plenty of humor and poignancy, Murdering the Mom, is an excellent pick for memoir collections, very highly recommended.quot -- Midwest Book Review quotDuff Brenna childhood and coming of age are as harrowing as Maxim Gorkis, but where Gorkis calls for a Soviet revolution to free underlcasses from the cycle of brutality, Brennas celebrates our common humanity, complexity, and resilience, revolution within. His accounts of being brutalized and loved by his stepfatherare both horrific and comic. This is a memoir remarkable for its ironic acceptance of outrages. quot quot Murdering the Mom is wonderful I just finished it a minute ago.

Like the sky, the scope of the poetry is wide, primarily a sweeping vision of spaces and eras specific to the West -- Oregon, New Mexico, deserts, mountains, ocean shores, the land and its people. The tone of voice, maintained almost consistently throughout the book, is filled with the sort of longing that beauty and wonder always occasion. Loss and searching, treated honestly and straighforwardly through human events and earthly, are Dieffenbachers major themes. quotOn the rim of the canyonI have come to find you.quot --Pattiann Rogers, author of Wayfare and Generations These gentle, well-considered poems travel American landscapes of the domestic, historic and prehistoric.

Kennedy, The Literary Review quotIn swift language woven with sparkling metaphors, Lees wry, sometimes zany observations dissect the human comedy in ways that are ironic but seldom bitter or satirical. Lee has a big heart, and he sees the good in almost everything or if not the good, at least the humor. If there is one thing we need more of in this sadly fracturing world, it is laughter.

Stationed in 1877 at Vancouver Barracks near Portland, General Howard grants Wood the privilege of exploring Alaska, then recalls him to fight in the tragic Nez Perce War. Part II features Woods transcribed diary from this period, a text enriched by Woods drawings leaked to the New York pressmdashthe only eye-witness images of the Nez Perce conflict. Part III traces Woods lifetime of prose and poetry defending Chief Joseph and finally opposing General Howard. The book concludes by documenting three 1990s events in the Wood familys legacy of friendship and respect for the Nez Perces: a joint exhibition, the gift of a stallion, and a reconciliation ceremony. With nearly two hundred notes and forty additional 19th century images, Soldier to Advocate shows us that history is the nightmare from which we should all try to awake. quotI highly recommend that any serious student of the Nez Perce Campaign read this excellent and rich piece of work.
