MOVING RENDITION

It’s been one year since the worse night that the city of Orlando, Florida, has experienced.

I could very easily could have been at Pulse that night.

This will never be forgotten.

~Dear Evan Hansen Song in Memory of the Orlando Victims~

In recognition of the one-year anniversary of the attack at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, where, on June 12, 2016, 49 people were killed and 53 others were wounded, the creators of mashup music videos #HAM4BEY have released their newest collaboration: a moving rendition of “You Will Be Found” from Dear Evan Hansen in memory of the victims.

The music video series was created by artist Michael Korte.

The performers featured are Mario Jose, Vincint, Danielle Withers, and Eric Lyn.

The track was arranged by David Rowen, with vocal production by Alexander Blake. The video was filmed and edited by Baxter Stapleton.

On June 12, 2016 – the same day as the Tony Awards – a gunman opened fire around 2 AM in Orlando’s Pulse gay nightclub, where more than 300 people were inside.

The attack marked one of the deadliest against the LGBTQ community in the nation’s history.

ASS-KISSING CONTEST 

Drumpf Cabinet Meeting Turned into a Bizarre Ass-Kissing Contest

Never seen in my lifetime, and believe you me, there are a lot of things I’ve seen in my many years.

Talk about decorum, self-respect, dignity, values, self-esteem, honor, morality, gravity, stateliness … where did they go?

On Monday, June 12, Drumpf took a break from yelling on Twitter about how the “fake media” is against him and found another way to stroke his pathological need for affection.

During a televised cabinet meeting, he said he had done as much as any president from FDR, then asked the assembled crew of billionaires, retired generals, and arch-conservative politicians what they thought the administration’s accomplishments thus far had been.

It was an exercise in attempting to satiate Drumpf’s insatiable ego, and all the officials took the opportunity to kiss as much presidential ass as possible.

ON THE WAY TO THE FINALS

I’m not really a baseball fan.

I didn’t know this championship was taking place until my dear friend Martin, from The Netherlands, made me aware.

Since then, he’s been keeping me informed and then I go look for info.

Last night was a very important game in many ways.

The main one for us, out countries were going head to head!

He told me …

“In 12 hours we know who plays final.

Good luck Puerto Rico, may the best ball player win!”

Thank you, Martin!

International Women’s Day

March 8 is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

International Women’s Day (IWD) has been observed since in the early 1900’s – a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies.

International Women’s Day is a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender parity.

No one government, NGO, charity, corporation, academic institution, women’s network or media hub is solely responsible for International Women’s Day.

Many organizations declare an annual IWD theme that supports their specific agenda or cause, and some of these are adopted more widely with relevance than others.

bline

“The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights,” says world-renowned feminist, journalist and social and political activist Gloria Steinem.

Thus International Women’s Day is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action – whatever that looks like globally at a local level. But one thing is for sure, International Women’s Day has been occurring for well over a century – and continue’s to grow from strength to strength.

One of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood attacked me!

Chosen by the HFPA Board of Directors, the Cecil B. deMille Award is given annually to a talented individual for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment

Meryl Streep was the recipient of the Cecil B. deMille Award of the 74th Golden Globes. With eight Golden Globes and 29 nominations, Meryl Streep is an icon of the performing arts.

She was honored with the 2017 Cecil B. deMille Award at the 74th Annual Golden Globe® Awards on Sunday, January 8, 2017, hosted by Jimmy Fallon. 

Lorenzo Soria, President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), made the announcement of Meryl Streep’s honor. Soria stated,

It’s no surprise that the HFPA has chosen Meryl Streep as the recipient of the 2017 Cecil B. DeMille Award.

Meryl’s enthralling body of work across a diverse set of genres has made her a role model over the past 40 years, and she will continue to do so for generations to come. She has always taken roles with strong female leads, creating art by showing vulnerability and portraying truth on the big screen.

Simply put, she is a trailblazer, having paved the way for women in television, film and stage.

For shattering gender and age barriers, all with finesse and grace, the HFPA is humbled to bestow this honor upon her.

… and she is ‘OVER-RATED’? 

Really?

For almost 40 years, Meryl Streep has portrayed an astonishing array of characters in a career that has cut its own unique path from the theater through film and television.

Streep was educated in the New Jersey public school system through high school, graduated cum laude from Vassar College, and received her MFA with honors from Yale University in 1975. She began her professional life on the New York stage, where she quickly established her signature versatility and verve as an actor. Within three years of graduation, she made her Broadway debut, won an Emmy (Holocaust) and received her first Oscar nomination (The Deer Hunter). In 2015, Streep was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for her role as The Witch in Into the Woods, marking her 29th recognition by the HFPA. In the same role, she earned her 19th Academy Award and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations. The three-time Academy Award-winner was recently seen in Stephen Frears’ Florence Foster Jenkins.

She is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and has been accorded a Commandeur de L’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Government and an honorary César. She received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Film Institute, a 2008 honor from the Film Society of Lincoln Center, and the 2010 National Medal of Arts from President Obama. In 2011, Streep received a Kennedy Center Honor, and in 2014 the Presidential Medal of Freedom. She holds honorary doctorates from Yale, Princeton, Harvard, Dartmouth Indiana Universities, the University Of New Hampshire, Lafayette, Middlebury, and Barnard Colleges.

The Presidential Medal of Freedom is an award bestowed by the President of the United States and is – along with the comparable Congressional Gold Medal – the highest civilian award of the United States.

It recognizes those individuals who have made “an especially meritorious contribution to the security or national interests of the United States, world peace, cultural or other significant public or private endeavors”.

The award is not limited to U.S. citizens and, while it is a civilian award, it can also be awarded to military personnel and worn on the uniform.

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.

A cappella group Pentatonix has dropped the music video for its powerful cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” which is featured on the vocal quintet’s new album, A Pentatonix Christmas.

Pentatonix chooses a subtle desert scene for the moving delivery of “Hallelujah.” The song is one of 11 tracks on the group’s latest LP, which was released on October 21.

PUERTO RICAN ICON

The Flamboyant Tree: A Puerto Rico Icon

The colors are amazing.

There’s a rainbow palette of them.

Driving through the local roads is an unforgettable experience.

Takes me back home!

HortyRex©

goldswirl

The Flamboyan Tree is a theme you will see throughout Puerto Rican art and is celebrated as a major iconic image of Puerto Rico. You will see images of the flamboyant in much of the local art and souvenirs when in Puerto Rico.

The Flamboyan is actually spelled Flamboyant, and is also known as Royal Poinciana, Flame Tree, Peacock Flower, and Gulmohar.
It produces large, fiery red or golden blooms that blossom from spring through summer. This fast-growing, deciduous tree develops fern like foliage and takes on a natural umbrella shape.

Its tolerance to poor soils and hard pruning make it an excellent selection for the drier areas of Puerto Rico, and even for bonsai!

Flamboyans were planted by the roadsides to shade people riding the roads on horseback. Originally from India, they thrive is dry climates and are most flamboyant on the south coast but still thrive in the wet forest.
