‘Climate Change’ …. “🌎 It’s Real …. Has Been Known Since the 70’s …. Time’s Running Out 🌎 …. “!!


~~March 31, 2019~~

SAVE OUR PLANET 

That’s the title of one of many books I had when I was in college. I took an environmental class and immersed myself in the knowledge available at the time. 

This was back in the early 70’s … as I look at my books today, as I read about the changes in our planet, as I hear the current administration’s views, as I see the deregulation and degradation of the world’s resources, I wonder that will be left for future generations. 

I’m on the way out … hardly any steps have been taken since my college years .

I can only hope that this trend towards the cliff is halted!

I REMEMBER IT WELL

He did say it.

I was watching and listening.

Casualties: hope, kindness, civility, decency, reason, happiness, truth, joy.

And as he continues this path and foresee many other casualties.

NAME CALLING

I’d seen these pictures before. I hadn’t shared them because I thought a bit of decorum was needed.

Now all bets are off … glass houses?

“Got the smallest, thinnest neck I’ve ever seen,” Drumpf said, referring to Adam Schiff at a rally. “He’s not a bat hitter.”

Critics on Twitter mostly loved to snap back urging people to “Be Best” – Melania’s slogan mission to battle bullying and apparently aiming to bring civility back to America.

They also cautioned that it’s probably not a good idea to make fun of someone else’s neck when you may have issues of your own. Politico reported that shortly after he was elected, Drumpf complained during a meeting with media execs about unflattering photos of him – and indicated that pictures emphasizing his double chin were particularly unwelcome.

(Double chin? I think there’s a better description!)

Saturday Morning


‘When had I made everything so complicated?’ … Sarah McColl, “Joy Enough: A Memoir.” (January, 2019) …

Live & Learn

At night, crickets sawed outside the windows of my childhood bedroom, and I read sixteen years of old journals, turning their pages into the early morning hours, as if I did not know what would happen next. There I was, same as ever, a linked paper chain of self-replication, continuously through time, the very same shorthand for a simple, happy life: muffin tins, cross-country skis, a desk by an open window. When had I made everything so complicated?

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ …. “🎼🎼 Queen Street Drum Session Cover …. Way Cool 🎼🎼 …. “!!

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY

I’ve been a fan for a long time; even before the movie.

After the movie, I’ve found so many covers, in so many genres and so many styles. This one is impressive … it’s a drum street session in Pamplona, Navarra, Spain.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Bohemian Rhapsody” is a song by the British rock band Queen. It was written by Freddie Mercury for the band’s 1975 album ‘A Night at the Opera’. It’s a six minute suite, consisting of several sections without a chorus: an intro, a ballad segment. an operatic passage, a hard rock part and a reflective coda. The song is a more accessible take on the 1970’s progressive rock genre.

When it was released as a single, “Bohemian Rhapsody” became a commercial success , staying at the top of the UK Singles Chart for nine weeks and selling more than a million copies by the end of January 1976.

Alicia Keys …. “💞🎼 ‘Grammys 2019’ …. Songs She Wishes She Wrote …. Two Pianos 🎼💞 …. “!!

ALICIA KEYS AND TWO PIANOS

I watched the Grammys 2019 and what I most enjoyed was the raw, amazing talent that Alicia Keys portrays by the mere strength and spirituality of her presence.

She made me feel so much in tune with her spirit when she played the two pianos, spoke and sang about the songs she wished she had written.

There is a previous post about this but I found a better video of that performance.

I hope you enjoy it.

Midway into the 2019 Grammy Awards, the show’s host, Alicia Keys, sang a medley of songs that she wished she’d written. She kicked it off by playing Scott Joplin’s “The Maple Leaf Rag” on two grand pianos, one black, one white, sitting between them on a stool. “I wanna welcome you to Club Keys,” she said.
“I’ve been thinking so much about the people and the music that have inspired me, and I want to give a shout out to Hazel Scott because I always wanted to play two pianos. But back to the music. You know those songs that live inside of you and live inside of me, and you just love it so much, because it was done so well that you wish you wrote it. That’s how I feel about these songs.

I wish I wrote ’em.”


Then she dug into her pianos’ keys. “When I think about heartache and heartbreak, I think about this song,” she said before singing, Roberta Flack’s “Killing Me Softly.” “Or when it’s time to move on, this is the song,” she said, before singing Juice Wrld’s “Lucid Dreams,” which transitioned into Nat King Cole’s “Unforgettable.” Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner nodded along. “Now who didn’t wish they wrote this song? I know I do,” before singing Kings of Leon’s “Use Somebody.” A band joined her in on her rendition of Drake’s “In My Feelings.” And then she flipped over to the white piano for Lauren Hill’s “Doo-Wop (That Thing),” saying she wished she’d written the whole album. “Then finally, you write the song that you wish you wrote,” she said before singing “Empire State of Mind.” 

“For the music that lives in us all,” she said at the end, before bowing and blowing a kiss at the audience.
