Linear Notes.

  1. In 1972 the publishers of the highly-lucrative Psychology Today, purchased the Saturday Review. At considerable expense, they moved the editorial offices from NYC to San Francisco where I lived at the time. My editor at the Saturday Review gave me a generous advance to cover the World Series of Rodeo then in Oklahoma City.  Covering a solid week of bull riding etc. changed my life. For the uninitiated, George Strait’s lyrics may require a gloss. “Well I’ll be looking for eight when they pull that gate/” Eight refers to the rules for scoring a bull ride. The perfect score is 100. Fifty for the rider. Fifty for the bull. The meaner the bull, the better the score. However, in order to receive a score, the rider must stay on the bull for eight seconds. Hence: “I’ll be looking for eight when they pull that gate/” Try it sometime.
  2. Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya (Sanskrit) is one of the mantras of the evocation of Krishna. OM is the interdimensional vibration permeates everything and everyone. NAMO: salute or reverence to divine power. BHAGAVATE: Respect the Lord. VASUDEVAYA: Vasudeva is the name of the family that created carnal Krishna. The Ya adds at the end means the active (male) feature of the mantra. When someone does this complete mantra evokes Krishna as a man who also lived here on earth and know the difficulties that all face. –About section, YouTube.
