Signature Backdrop

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 9:00 PM

"The Bitter End’s signature stage backdrop —
a bare 150-year-old brick wall — helped distinguish it from
other popular bohemian hangouts like the Village Gate  
and the Village Vanguard. It appeared on the cover of
Peter, Paul and Mary’s first album."

Game

The Game in the Ship cannot be approached as a job,
a vocation, a career, or a recreation. To the contrary,
it is Life and Death itself at work there. In the Inner Game,
we call the Game Dhum Welur , the Mind of God."
