Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah …. “Pentatonix …. “!!


pent

~~November 14, 2016~~ 

COHEN’S HALLELUJAH.

I’ve heard this song before.

Events have come together these past days that have brought it to my mind’s forefront.

I’ll never hear it again without the associated memory of Kate McKinnon playing it on Saturday Night Live as the somber way to end the skits about Hillary Clinton’s run for the presidency.

Here you have a cover by Pentatonix.

Angelika, my oldest grand-daughter, made me aware of this cover today.

Enjoy!

Nothing about Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” – the original version of the song Cohen recorded for his 1984 album “Various Positions” – leads you to conclude that it would go on to become one of pop music’s most durable compositions.

Not the rinky-dink keyboard tone. Not the singer’s low, dry croak. And certainly not the lyric full of stark biblical imagery.

Yet in the years leading up to Cohen’s death this week at age 82, “Hallelujah” attained the kind of pop-cultural saturation we more commonly associate with songs by the likes of Justin Timberlake, to name one star who quickly mourned Cohen’s passing on social media.

“A spirit and soul beyond compare,” Timberlake tweeted.

 I AM BACK

Welcome autumn!

http://www.pocoyo.com

I was a wonderful week spent up north.

I took Angelika, my oldest grand child with me.

She had her “fall break”, not to be confused with “spring brake”.

This is the first time I heard about this kind of school brake.

We were visiting family and it was quality time for all.

I missed the blogosphere.

I missed all of you!

Now I’m back to the usual grind!!

NO WORRIES

All is good.

It’s only for a few days.

I’m going away with Angelika, my oldest grand-daughter.

She’s on “fall break” this coming week.

We will be going up north.

I will keep an eye on interesting postings from bloggers I follow but won’t be able to post myself unless it’s something very simple.

No computer access up there.

But I will be back.

‘FEEL THE LIGHT’

My oldest grand-daughter, Angelika, started taking vocal lessons recently.

She chose this song to practice with her teacher.

We needed to print the lyrics for her.

This is way I found this beautifully amazing video by Jennifer López.

I liked the movie, loved this song.

Just found the video today.

Enjoy!

KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS

On this rainy day, Angelika, my oldest grand-daughter, got out of school a noon.

We’ve been meaning to do something together.

This movie was on our “must see” list.

Off we went and we had a great time.

We both loved the movie.

Here’s some info and the trailer for it.

Enjoy!

Kubo and the Two Strings is a 2016 American 3D stop-motion fantasy action adventure film, directed by Travis Knight, written by Marc Haimes and Chris Butler, and produced by Laika.

The film features the voices of Art Parkinson, Charlize Theron, Matthew McConaughey, Ralph Fiennes, Rooney Mara and George Takei.

~PLOT~

In ancient Japan, Kubo (Art Parkinson) is a young boy who lives with his ill mother, Sariatu (Charlize Theron), in a cave on top of a mountain. Every day he goes out to a nearby village to tell stories by manipulating pieces of paper that form into origami that moves under music played from Kubo’s shamisen.

He tells tales of great warriors seeking revenge while battling monsters, primarily of a samurai warrior named Hanzo, who is Kubo’s missing father. Every day he quickly returns to his mother when the town bell chimes signaling sunset. She instructs him not to stay outside after dark or her Sisters (his aunts) and his grandfather, the Moon King, will come to take his remaining eye, as they took the other when he was a baby.

One day, Kubo learns of a ceremony where family members communicate with deceased loved ones (Obon). He arrives at a cemetery and tries to speak to his father, but he leaves in anger when his father does not respond to him. Because Kubo has stayed outside after sundown, his mother’s Sisters (Rooney Mara) find him and try to take his eye. After they destroy the village, his mother arrives to fend off her Sisters.

His mother sends Kubo away by touching a beetle crest on his robe which gives him wings, forcing him to fly away from his mother. She tells him to find his father’s armor in order to protect Kubo from his grandfather’s evil spirits. He takes a piece of her hair before she is seemingly killed by her Sisters.

GoldSwirlHortAngGoldSwirl

Upon his return to the village, he is able to reclaim the helmet and puts it on. He is greeted by Raiden (Ralph Fiennes), the ghost that appeared to Kubo in his dream. Raiden is revealed to be his grandfather, the Moon King. The Moon King, who needs Kubo’s eye to rid Kubo of all his powers and memories, transforms into the “Moon Beast” and fights Kubo. Kubo is defeated and tossed into the cemetery where the Moon King corners him as well as the surviving villagers.

Kubo retaliates by taking off the armor and repairs his shamisen using the hair of his mother, his father’s bowstring, and one of his own hairs. He uses its magic to recruit the spirits of the villagers’ deceased, showing that memories are the strongest form of magic and can never be destroyed. The Moon King is defeated and becomes mortal, and in his human form has no recollection of who or what he was.

The villagers make him believe that he is a good man. After the villagers set their lanterns near a lake, Kubo is able to speak with his parents and make peace with them, saying that he is happy he was able to go on a journey with them.

They then appear beside him in the form of spirits.

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

You can find Michelle here: http://mchelsmusings.wordpress.com/

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
