Woof, Baby!

tell me you've seen the sneak peek.... TELL ME YOU'VE SEEN THE SNEAKPEAK


(I was trying to catch up with my dash from this morning, but in light of having seen the sneak peek over on the tweeter just now I am abandoning that project in order to flail in the general dash flaility that I assume is already going on… many reblogs and things are likely to follow as soon as I post this and get back to the current spot on the dash…)

So Dean’s sitting in his room listening to music and drinking, with this look on his face:

He is so checked out right now.

We hear some quiet music in the background of this scene, and I don’t know exactly what it is, but the rhythm track sounds so much like When The Levee Breaks that I screamed wondering how they got the rights to a Led Zeppelin track, but it was originally a song from 1927 and the Led Zeppelin version was a cover of that Kansas Joe McCoy and Memphis Minnie song, so it absolutely could be a different cover version of that song… I don’t know if anyone else has already definitively identified it as something else, but I did have that Top 13 Zepp Traxx moment, so regardless I’m counting it as something…

So while Dean’s having his middle-distance-musical-stare-a-thon, Sam is introducing Jack to his human parent via Kelly’s video journal to him. Dean’s wallowing in past memories of someone he believes he will never see again, while Jack is learning of memories he’ll never be able to make about someone he will never see again.

Aah, love and love.

“Beyoncé is a thief! She ripped off Led Zeppelin’s "when the levee breaks” in her song “don’t hurt yourself”….she isn’t authentic, just another hip hop artist appropriating rock music to be edgy" K but Led Zeppelin ripped off Kansas Joe McCoy and Memphis Minnie(pictured) who wrote and recorded “when the levee breaks” in 1929, 42 years before Led Zeppelin put out their version.

 Your elitist, racist, misogynist bullshit badly masquerading as musical preferrence is showing. Anyways, contemporary rock music is bleached, processed and bastardized black music….don’t for one second think you have a more refined taste in music because you listen to led zeppelin, the beatles, the rolling stones etc (any other skinny white boys in guitar music(old or new))……they are to rock music what take away is to a home cooked meal from a family recipe. No comparison


When The Levee Breaks, 1929. Led Zep’s version probably outnumbers this Kansas Joe McCoy & Memphis Minnie original by at least twenty to one on tumblr. It’s one of many Zep “borrowed” from old blues masters as they made their name in the 60s and 70s. Jimmy Page blamed Robert Plant for not reworking the lyrics, telling Guitar World in 1993 that Plant had thus caused the band “grief” with lawsuits, saying his guitar work was too original to be “nailed” on, but with many of the old blues song lyrics basically unchanged, that wasn’t the case with the words. Personally, I like both versions of this song—Memphis Minnie’s guitar work is great, as is Jimmy Page’s—although in some instances (i.e. “Bring It On Home”) I definitely prefer the old to the new.
