Poi Dog Pondering is an American musical group, noted for its cross-pollination of diverse musical genres, including various forms of acoustic folk music, and electronic music. Founded in Hawaii in 1985, the band moved to Austin, Texas in 1987, where they recorded their first three albums. In 1992, the band relocated once again, this time to Chicago, Illinois, and began to incorporate elements of house music into their style.
Famous quotes containing the words dog and/or pondering:
“The bite of conscience, like a dog biting a stone, is a stupidity.”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
“As for your friend, my prospective reader, I hope he ignores Fort Sumter, and Old Abe, and all that; for that is just the most fatal, and, indeed, the only fatal weapon you can direct against evil ever; for, as long as you know of it, you are particeps criminis. What business have you, if you are an angel of light, to be pondering over the deeds of darkness, reading the New York Herald, and the like.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
