Got some new CD's and loaded them up to all my devices. My music is always, always, always bought, paid for and very much appreciated and utilized. : )
A live version of a beautiful song!
And this popped up in my head
one night as an earworm. Darned thing woke me up out of a sound sleep!
My Dad took the family out for Easter dinner again this year. Its always so nice not to have to cook or clean up afterwards. So relaxing. At one point, my sister was saying something, I don't remember what, when her husband suddenly put his hand down on the table. She turned to him and asked him what it was she was saying that he could possibly be ob
For all my many tatooed nephews. I love you all.
So conflicted.....not! St. Valentine's Day comes on the second day of Lent. But the tradition will continue....the sixth posting of the annual St. Valentine's Day song! Ta Da! And May He Intercede On Our Behalf Today, His Day, And Send Us All The Lovin We Can Handle!
The devise qued up these serendipitious songs about men who are decidely not like my Daddy then JUMPS in and proposes an upbeat solution to their woes . : ) The shuffle feature is so much fun and I'm glad nobody reads these things because my MP3 is starting to sound downright Oedipal!
Croons like these, some of the best that touch so tender and sincere.
Where's my shillelagh? Gotta get it out from under the bed. Damn, this video crackles. Love those old guys.. really,.they can still snap a wire~
What is the possibility that I am going to be able to suppress the urge to howl when this begins? Zero.
Loyalty rests in the heart of a dog
Loyalty lifts and we donâ€™t know why
Loyalty lives and we donâ€™t know why
Say â€“ Banga
Loneliness lifts when you open the night
Say - Banga
Loyalty shifts if you carry a load
On the lonely night

So let's kick it up. Movin on .
Brass needs no amplification and David Byrne is as fresh as ever and a hell of a lot of fun. Saw Byrne and Annie Clark of St. Vincent at the Beacon last night. It was a great night of new music. We attended to mark our marriage anniversary. Been married now longer then we were not. How's about that!
Found some great photos on line: http://www.brooklynvegan.com/archives/2012/09/david_byrne_st_2.html
Here's a real review of their music and I can't say its not accurate. Its true, the two of them came from the same planet. Its a planet I like but I suggest listening to their CD..Love This Giant, and maybe St. Vincent's STrange Mercy before attending the concert...... St. Vincent can be an acquired taste.
"...... There's something spooky, too, about Love This Giant, the collaboration between David Byrne & St. Vincent (Sept. 25, Beacon Theatre). That's not surprising—both artists have something of a fascination with oddities and grotesques. In both his solo career and his work with Talking Heads, Byrne often obsessed over the unusualness and uncomfortability of being human. In Byrne's songs, the human condition is a nervous one—the body is often treated as alien and day-to-day life is treated with a kind of clammy unease. In "Making Flippy Floppy," from 1978's More Songs About Buildings and Food, he wheezes "Snap into position/ snap until you ache/…bring me a doctor, I have a hole in my head," before unconvincingly concluding, "They are just people, and I’m not afraid." St. Vincent—or, as she is known to her parents, Annie Clark—shares Byrne's concept of human-as-alien, but the characters in her songs often feel more malicious. In the video for "Cruel," the first single from her bewitchingly twisted 2011 album Strange Mercy, she is kidnapped and forced to play mother to a strange family in a remote, empty house. The video ends with her being buried alive in the backyard. So small wonder the record Byrne and Vincent made together is full of alienated people who are either unwilling or uninterested in joining the rest of the human race. As befitting such uncomfortable subject matter, the arrangements jab rudely, like elbows in a packed elevator. Ice pick guitars puncture bloated-belly brass, and vocal harmonies are stretched and distended until they sound more robotic than organic. It often sounds like a 50-piece marching band gamely attempting free jazz, an appropriately violent sound for such discomfiting subject ."
I'm not positive, but I think these guys are in my future.
Saw my cousin Saturday. Claimed he had 14,000 songs on his Ipod. I believe him. He's a big Talking Heads fan. He's a big fan....period.
Fresh from the interwebs....
There's going to be no getting away for us this year. Not even for the few days we've been accustomed to taking. We're on spending lock down because of the wedding and his looming retirement. The time away really charges my romantic batteries. But my imagination is going to have to do the job this year. Buck up, Annie. Its not the end of the world.
My list of desired discs is getting woefully long.

There is that.
This film is wonderful. Quirky and magical. Not for young children, I think because although it depicts a child's perspective it does it through an adult's eye. You might disagree. Still, the stage settings, props, camera work, acting, music, plot and costumes are wonderful to experience. Slices of time and place, fr
