BRIAN KING JOSEPH 

~Season 2018 of  America’s Got Talent has begun~

I’m amazed at this performer’s talent and his personal story.

He started playing the violin as a child. He showed incredible talent and continued down his musical path.

As life has it, as an adult, he has been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy.

His hands and feet are affected by this chronic condition.

He doesn’t know how long he will be able to continue playing the violin.

These performances have caught my heart!

He auditioned and was selected at the Judges Cut for the live shows. 

Hope you enjoy it!

JAXON WILLARD

~WORLD OF DANCE 2018~

The 2018 season is at the duels portion.

This  young, talented kid is out of this world.

As J-Lo said ‘god has given him wings to fly’.

Jaxon Willard brought the ‘World of Dance’ judges to tears with this routine about his anger towards his birth mother

“It’s about my feelings towards my birth mom and how I was angry and felt abandoned by her,” said teenager Jaxon Willard about what inspired his contemporary solo routine during The Duels on “World of Dance.”

The black competitor, who was adopted into a white family, has struggled with his feelings about the family he came from and how to express those feelings to the family he now has, but he channeled those feelings into the highest scoring performance of the night.

~Ne-Yo~

“I’m looking around at the crowd – you got people in here crying, brother … [Jaxon’s adoptive mother] should be so proud of this guy. I understand the concept of being humble, and I can tell you’re so humble and there’s so much humility in you. But I need you to walk with your chest out and your back straight, brother. There is so much power in you. Listen, I’ll get into the performance now. You are the epitome of power and vulnerability. It’s like you jump in the air and you float. It’s like an effortless thing for you. You are amazing at what you do. I need you to walk in that.”

~Jennifer Lopéz~

“For me, God gives us a set of circumstances in life. Everybody has their story, but then he gives you so much. He gave you so much talent. Honestly he gave you the ability to fly. He gave you wings on your back by giving you your mom, by giving you your family, by giving you this talent, and without your story you wouldn’t be able to be the artist that you are today. There is an elegance to the way you dance, and it is just an honor to watch it.”

~Derek Hough~

“Jaxon, you are a master storyteller. Your ability to own a moment in stillness is unbelievable. You are in tune with yourself, and when you’re in tune with yourself you can create magic, and that’s exactly what you did on this stage. Thank you so much for that performance.”

I’LL BE AWAY FOR A FEW DAYS

I’m going away for a bit.

There’s a trip I’m going on.

I’m going back home for a few days.

I won’t be able to post as usual. I won’t be able to reblog either … my phone and my iPad don’t have the ‘reblog button’ anymore.

Don’t know why!

Anyway, I will be looking in every so often to check up on my dear friends.

I will miss all of you.

Maria

On the morning of Wednesday, September 20, 2017, Hurricane María struck Puerto Rico, devastating the island and plunging all of its 3.4 million residents into a desperate humanitarian crisis.

I will never forget.

I’m going to see family and friends.

I want to drive around and see what is happening 8 months after this disaster.

RedLineBJason deCaires Taylor (born 12 August 1974 in Dover) is a British sculptor and creator of the world’s first underwater sculpture park – the Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park – and underwater museum.

He is best known for installing site-specific underwater sculptures which develop into artificial coral reefs integrating his skills as a sculptor, marine conservationist, underwater photographer and scuba diving instructor.

His works in Grenada have been listed among the Top 25 Wonders of the World by National Geographic. His most ambitious projects to date are the creation of the world’s largest underwater sculpture museum, the Cancún Underwater Museum, situated off the coast between Cancún and Isla Mujeres, Mexico and Ocean Atlas (2014), a 5-metre tall, 60-ton sculpture off the Bahamas. Taylor is currently based on the island of Lanzarote, Spain, working on a major new underwater museum for the Atlantic Ocean.

RedLineBJason deCaires Taylor’s New Sculpture “Nest” Unveiled
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, July 31, 2017

The new work by underwater sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor – called “Nest” – has been completed with the installation of the final figures.

The sculptor describes the work thus: “‘Nest’ creates a new habitat space, a nucleus of protection and support. The circular formation evokes time and continuum, an echo of the circle of life.”

Now open to the public, the new sculpture, which is comprised of 48 life-size human figures, is situated near the island of Gili Meno, one of the three Gili Islands found between Bali and Lombok.

It’s the first time that Taylor has situated a work in the Asia region; his sprawling masterpiece, “Museo Atlántico,” is located off the Spanish island of Lanzarote.

Commissioned by the luxury resort developer BASK, the new sculpture sits in just 13 feet of water, so it’s possible for snorkelers as well as divers to visit the installation.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again …. “🎼🎼 I Kissed The Teacher …. Lyric Video 🎼🎼 …. “!!

I JUST KISSED THE TEACHER

MAMMA MIA

 I can’t tell you how much the movie Mamma Mia means to me.

I’ve lost counts of the many time I went to watch on the big screen. I even went to the ‘sing-a-long’ version!

ABBA’s music takes me to a very happy time in my young life.

I bought the DVD and every so often watch it at home again.

After the movie, there was a theater production in town which I also saw. After the movie, although the play as good, it was kinda of like a let-down.

Maybe I should’ve seen the theater production first!

Anyway, I’m so excited that a Mamma Mia 2 is coming out this summer.

You can’t bet I’ll be there!

It seems that Meryl Streep won’t be in the movie (that’s a bummer) but Cher comes in to play the grandma! 

Check the video out.

The first song off of the upcoming Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again movie, due out in theaters in July, has just been released

When I Kissed the Teacher” is an ABBA deep cut from 1976 album Arrival; old school fans of the Swedish pop superstars will know it, but everyone else should quickly catch on to the signature upbeat vibe and playful singalong lyrics. And, yes, it’s about kissing a teacher. The accompanying video shows off Cinderella actress Lily James – who’s starring in the movie sequel as a young Donna – singing and dancing enthusiastically through a school graduation ceremony, backed up by the other two ladies of the singing group the Dynamos.

ABBA’s own Benny Andersson is credited with producing and arranging the movie’s soundtrack, so you know they’re sticking to the group’s roots. But fans also received good news last week, when ABBA announced they’ve recorded two brand-new songs set for release soon, their first new music in over three decades.

‘This Is America’ …. “🎼🎼 Childish Gambino …. Did you Catch all the Themes? 🎼🎼 …. “!!

THIS IS AMERICA VIDEO … IN A NUTSHELL

Did you catch all the themes in Childish Gambino’s “This is America”?

Quite a strong message.

The title is right on target:

This IS America!

Be forewarned.

Some content may be offensive to some who may shy away from the sad reality.

I had to look up the lyrics to get the full meaning.

How Childish Gambino’s ‘This Is America’ Indicts and Challenges Its Audience
The controversial new music video by Donald Glover and Hiro Murai has amassed millions of YouTube views while exposing viewers to the horrors of the black experience in America.

~IRA MADISON III~

Have you ever been grateful for something that you find aesthetically revolting?

The caustically violent “This Is America,” Donald Glover’s latest single and video under his musical moniker Childish Gambino, is exactly that.

The song, which blends jazz, hip-hop, and South African melodies to deliver a scheming-up mantra of “get your money, black man,” takes on an entirely different tone when paired with its Hiro Murai-directed music video that depicts Glover maniacally dancing while simultaneously murdering black people in pastoral tableaus.

Informative video but there were some other things I picked up/read about:

1. His pants are supposed to be similar to the basics of confederate army uniforms
2. SZA (the women at the end) is representing lady liberty passively watching this all going on, which is ironic since she’s the symbol of freedom.
3. The horse followed by the police car is a biblical reference “And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.” – Revelation 6:8 “
4. The cars shown in the video are all 80s-90s make. They’re not like the typical rap cars you see in videos.
5. Kids on their cellphones represent how passive we are when things happen in front of us. There has been many occasions when something fatal could have been stopped, but people were too busy recording it on their phones.
Anyways! That’s a few takeaways I’ve had.

Good art always provokes thought and conversation.

I love how this video has done that.

~RISE~

Inspired by a true story, a working-class community is awakened when its high school theater program takes on an unconventional new leader

As dedicated teacher and family man Lou Mazzuchelli takes over the lagging department, he encourages his students to unleash their creativity and explore new means of self-expression.

Rise - Season 1

But even though the students discover talents and ambitions they never knew they had, not everyone in town is thrilled. Upset by challenges brought by change, enraged faculty and skeptical parents contest Mr. Mazzu’s galvanizing efforts.

But with passionate fervor running through the town’s veins, no one can deny a revolution is underway.
