No matter what life hands you, no matter the curves thrown your way, no matter the obstacles … life is still beautiful.

All you need to do is surround yourself with Nature. This provides solace, peace and comfort.

In spite of it all, it is still “a wonderful world”.

~LYRICS~

I see trees of green, red roses, too,
I see them bloom, for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world.
I see skies of blue, and clouds of white,
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world.
The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky,
Are also on the faces of people going by.
I see friends shaking hands, sayin’, “How do you do?”
They’re really sayin’, “I love you.”
I hear babies cryin’. I watch them grow.
They’ll learn much more than I’ll ever know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world
Yes, I think to myself

At the end of the day …. “Ellen DeGeneres: Stunning Surprise Duet”!!

ELLEN, TOM AND JESSIE J

Ellen DeGeneres coordinates Jessie J duet with viral video cohort

The Ellen DeGeneres really can make dreams come true. The segment that aired on Thursday’s show, October 8, 2015,  is another example.

The titular host brought Tom Bleasby, a 19-year-old Englishman — and X Factor U.K. contestant — to the show. He created a video with himself and pop star Jessie J belting “Flashlight” from Pitch Perfect 2, via the app Sing! Karaoke by Smule.

When given the stage to sing the song by himself, DeGeneres cuts him off. “We’re missing something. Something’s missing,” she says. Then, Jessie J is revealed from a sliding wall, slipping through to hug Bleasby and wing their performance without practice.

THE HUNGER GAMES 

It’s no secret.

I’m an ardent fan and follower of both the trilogy books and the movies.

I read the books a while ago but the memories are still there.

Any movie hardly ever does justice to any book it’s based on.

However, the way these movies were made impressed me; particularly Jennifer Lawrence’s role.

All of the actors were excellent.

The last installment will be in theaters by November 20th.

I can’t hardly wait.

Will be somewhat saddened when it’s done; the same way I was when I finished the last book.

Hunting isn’t a sport.

It’s not a game either.

In a game both sides know they are playing for fun.

To call hunting “sport” is more than a misnomer: it’s an imprecision that has the effect of enlarging society’s acceptance of gun use generally.

When hunting is called “sport,” it becomes wrapped in the same benign mantle as our familiar, non-lethal games of athletic activity and physical competition.

ANY NEW, STRANGE THING

“What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability.

It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are.”

~Anthony Robbins~

GoldSwirl

Frances Eliza Hodgson Burnett (24 November 1849 – 29 October 1924) was an American-English writer of plays and prose fiction.

She is best known for the three children’s novels Little Lord Fauntleroy (published in 1885–1886), A Little Princess (1905), and The Secret Garden (1911).

ELLEN DEGENERES, ADELE, DRAKE AND LIONEL

Adele, Drake and Lionel Richie Have the Most Ridiculous Phone Conversations with Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen DeGeneres  is so popular, she gets phone calls from Adele, Drake and Lionel Richie …. all within the matter of minutes.

At least that’s how it looks in a must-see spoof on Thursday’s episode, October 28, 2015, of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Adele might have a throwback flip phone in the music video for “Hello,” but DeGeneres tops her with an old-school device that belongs in a 1980’s time capsule. The only problem: her reception isn’t that great, and she can’t understand what the singer is saying.

“The connection is bad.

Did you say you’re eating beets?”

Ellen deadpans – and that’s just the beginning of the ridiculousness.

Before we know it, DeGeneres is getting another call from Drake, who has a familiar complaint you’ll recognize from his new song “Hotline Bling“.

Just when DeGeneres thinks this crazy phone session is over, Richie calls with a pertinent question.

If you don’t want the star-studded conversation to end, check out the Adele-Richie mashup that’s gone viral.

~Ellen DeGeneres Spoofs Adele’s “Hello” Video~

~Published on Oct 29, 2015~

If Ellen doesn’t spoof your music video, did you really even make a music video? Her latest spoof project was Adele’s record breaking “Hello” music video and she did not disappoint.
Adele’s “Hello” video is beautiful, cus duh it’s Adele, but Ellen managed to spice it up with a little help from Drake, Lionel Ritchie, and some potato chips.
In the spoof, Ellen gets a call from Adele on this ancient 80’s phone and proceeds to talk to Adele except instead of her talking back, snippets of Adele’s video are used to carry on the convo.

BLine

Adele hangs up on Lionel Richie in this ‘Hello’
mashup video

If the first thought that came to your mind when listening to Adele’s new single “Hello” was, “How would Lionel Richie – whose 1984 song by the same name landed him two Grammy nominations – react?” then you’re not alone. While many celebs took an instant liking to the lead single off the British singer’s forthcoming album, Blend TV’s mashup of both “Hello” videos shows Richie getting the short end of Adele’s poor cell phone reception.

TELL ME WHY …. ANOTHER VERSION

Several days ago, I started the day with the original version of “Tell Me Why” sung by a very young Declan Galbraith. The first video was uploaded in 2006. By 2012, a new version was posted which included a duo.

Declan was born Dec. 19, 1991 … he’s 26 years old now.

Doudou, a teen Chinese girl who made a name by singing the Beijing Olympic theme song “You and Me”.

Tonight, I would like to share with you this other version. Hope you enjoy it.

We see that our world reality hasn’t changed since then.

If anything, it’s gotten worse.

The lyrics apply today as much as they did back then.

Can anyone tell me why?

Twelve-year-old girl Doudou announced her Olympics concert in London, Light up the World, in Beijing on July 11, 2012.

(currently Doudou is 15 years old)

Doudou, who became well-known as the singer of the Beijing Olympics’ theme song You and Me in 2008, held the concert in London.

Declan Galbraith, an English singer will appear alongside Doudou in the concert.

LYRICS

In my dream, children sing
a song of love for every boy and girl
The sky is blue
and fields are green
and laughter is the language of the world
Then I wake and all I see,
is a world full of people in need

Chorus
Tell me why (why) does it have to be like this?
Tell me why (why) is there something I have missed?
Tell me why (why) cos I don’t understand
When so many need somebody,
we don’t give a helping hand
Tell me why?

Everyday I ask myself,
what will I have to do to be a man?
Do I have to stand and fight,
to prove to everybody who I am?
Is this what my life is for,
to waste in a world full of war?

Chorus
Tell me why (why) does it have to be like this?
Tell me why (why) is there something I have missed?
Tell me why (why) cos I don’t understand
When so many need somebody,
we don’t give a helping hand
Tell me why?

Chorus
(children) tell me why? (Declan) tell me why?
(children) tell me why? (Declan) tell me why?
(together) just tell me why, why, why?

Chorus
Tell me why (why) does it have to be like this?
Tell me why (why) is there something I have missed?
Tell me why (why) cos I don’t understand
When so many need somebody,
we don’t give a helping hand
Tell me why?

Chorus
(why, why, does the tiger run)
Tell me why (why, why do we shoot the gun)
Tell me why (why, why do we never learn)
Can someone tell us why we let the forest burn?
(why, why do we say we care)
Tell me why (why, why do we stand and stare)
Tell me why (why, why do the dolphin cry)
Can some one tell us why we let the ocean die?
(why, why if we’re all the same)
Tell me why (why, why do we pass the blame)
Tell me why (why, why does it never end)
Can some one tell us why we cannot just be friends?

(why, why do we close our eyes?)
(why, why do the greedy lie?)
(why, why do we fight for land?)
(can someone tell us why cos we don’t understand?)
(why, why?)

HELLO

You knew it was coming, and here it is: Adele’s first new song in three years, “Hello,” has arrived just days after being teased during British X Factor.

As promised, it comes complete with a video directed by Xavier Dolan and co-starring Tristan Wilds (yes, from The Wire). It’s the first single off her long-awaited third album, 25, which Adele will officially bless us with on November 20.

Breathe!

Also, dive into our exploration of why Adele rebuffs technology in the song and its video.

When Adele’s new video for “Hello” was released on Friday, Oct. 23, plenty of fans had the same question:

Why does she have a flip phone?

As emotional and poignant as the video is, some viewers couldn’t help but zero in on the outdated piece of technology — with jokes like “It’s not just Adele’s comeback.

It’s the flip phone’s comeback too” and “A flip phone, Adele? Explains the lack of tweets.”

Director Xavier Dolan has a simple explanation for his choice to use a flip phone in the visual treatment for the song, which is the first single from Adele’s upcoming album 25.

Adele’s ‘Hello‘ music video director: ‘She deserves it all’

“I could see the GIF’s on Twitter,” he tells the Los Angeles Times. “I’m like, ‘Guys, get over it. It doesn’t matter.’

But the real explanation is that I never like filming modern phones or cars.

They’re so implanted in our lives that when you see them in movies you’re reminded you’re in reality.”

“If you see an iPhone or a Toyota in a movie, they’re anti-narrative, they take you out of the story,” Dolan continues. “If I put an iPhone or a modern car in a movie it feels like I’m making a commercial.”

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi ( 2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948) was the preeminent leader of the Indian independence movement in British-ruled India. Employing nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world.

The honorific Mahatma (Sanskrit: “high-souled”, “venerable”) — applied to him first in 1914 in South Africa — is now used worldwide.
