CSI:Miami (Season 5)

Like their CSI counterparts in Las Vegas,
the CSI: Miami team
tackles the fascinating, compelling
approach to crime
known as forensic science.

Behind the sun, surf and palm trees
lurk captivating, spellbinding mysteries
and baffling clues.

Led by former homicide detective
Horatio Caine,
CSI: Miami follows
a Miami forensics unit
as they work to solve crimes
amid the steamy, tropical surroundings
and cultural crossroads
of Miami.

Caine leads an elite team
        that includes:
a bilingual Southern beauty
        with a specialty in ballistics;
a cocky yet disarming investigator
        who is well-connected on the street;
an underwater recovery expert
        who knows all the twists and turns of the Florida waterways;
a no-nonsense, know-it-all coroner;
Detective Yelena Sala –
        a frequent ally to the team.

these investigators
collect and analyze
the evidence
to solve the crimes
and to vindicate
those who often
cannot speak for themselves –
the victims.
Lead Criminalist Horatio Caine
is targeted by adversaries
old and new
in the fifth season of CSI: Miami.
As the danger grows for Caine
he and the rest of his team
must go the limit
to solve their biggest cases yet.

The Bands That Played at Woodstock

The bands that played at Woodstock, they were giants in their time,
and those too at Monterey.
All the old guard, from Woodstock to the Isle-of-Wright,
all they wanted was to play.

The bands that played at Woodstock, came armed with beaten Les Pauls
piped loud through towering stacks,
looked almost alien, decked out in their leather fringe,
hair flowing down their backs.

The bands that played at Woodstock, never cared much for being civil
though sang ’bout right and wrong
in folk and rock lessons with smashed up guitars and
youth’s nation sang along.

The bands that played at Woodstock, threw some anarchistic bombs
into that great body sea
that exploded back in waves and ripples of screaming love
and tie-dyed memory.

The bands that played at Woodstock, never thought of cashing in.
Back then who would dare foresee
members of their tribe turning rebel anthems of youth into
TV theme songs for a fee.

Pete Townsend, if you’ve got in you – STOP!
for the sake of memory,
Pete Townsend, we might have to skin you
for selling out history.

CSI is on! Sons and daughters come!
Out here in Fox Fields,
let’s heat up our meals.
Let’s get our backs
into our living
room sofas.

CSI is on! Sons and daughters come!
CSI is on. Let’s watch it and be numb.
