MUSICAL GIANTS

I think that every artist dreams of renewing the forms which came before, but I think very few can be considered to have achieved that.

We are all dwarves standing upon the shoulders of the giants who preceded us, and I think we must never forget that.

After all, even iconoclasts only exist with respect to that which they destroy.

James Corden …. “having a blast with …. MADONNA in NYC …. “!

JAMES CORDEN CARPOOL KARAOKE

Madonna Get Weird with James Corden on Carpool Karaoke

Eventually, it had to happen: the best-selling female artist of all time had to get in the passenger seat of James Corden’s car to help the well-loved TV host make his way through traffic.

But as with all things Madonna, nothing is ever quite what you expect; she is the master of spectacle, after all.

The Queen of Pop and the British comedian make quite a pair in Wednesday night’s (December 7), installment of Carpool Karaoke, running through a slew of Madonna’s greatest hits (with accompanying dance moves) and even getting into some salacious gossip.

(“What was it like to spend a night out – or in – with Michael Jackson?”

“So you want me to kiss and tell then, don’t you?” they banter.)

FIRST PERFECT SCORE

I know ‘my girl’ has it in her!

Last night was the proof.

Laurie and Val performed a sassy jazz routine to Michael Jackson’s ‘The Way You Make Me Feel’.

She’s young, vivacious, real, genuine and a delight to watch.

Totally in her corner!

‘DWTS’ Season 23: Laurie Hernández Dazzles, Earns Perfect Score in Week 4

In a special show last night, October 3, competitors on “Dancing With the Stars” performed routines that were all inspired by various Cirque du Soleil shows, and they were even joined on the ballroom floor by Cirque’s acrobats and other performers.

At the end of the night, Olympic gymnast Laurie Hernández topped and Val Chmerkovskiy the leaderboard with 30 points – earning not only the first 10s of the season but the season’s first perfect score.

~High Scorer~

The Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast channeled her inner Michael Jackson for a sassy jazz routine that electrified the ballroom audience and judges and earned her three 10’s for the first perfect score of the season.

During the judges’ critique Julianne Hough initially made amazed faces without speaking, then said:

“I literally have nothing to say other than the fact that Michael Jackson may be the king of pop but you are the queen of the ballroom!”

BLACK OR WHITE

IN MEMORY OF MICHAEL JACKSON

Michael Jackson had a birthday last month.

We all miss his presence, his music and his talent.

I found this video this morning as I scrolled through my Facebook Timeline.

Even though Michael’s birthday has already passed, this tribute is worth a look.

At the beginning of the video, several current worldwide events are shown.

Black against white, terror attacks, continued wars, military might, police brutality, abuse of power, political status.

Anti-racism is one of the most important.

~Happy Birthday Michael Jackson~

Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009) was an American singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer, and actor. Called the King of Pop, his contributions to music, dance, and fashion along with his publicized personal life made him a global figure in popular culture for over four decades.

Today, August 29, we celebrate the king of pop and everything he did for us. Michael wanted to spread good in our world trying to change the bad and heal the world for some of its problems.

Unfortunately the world is still in a troubling state.

In these times many people look at various links on social media and unfortunately react with fear, hatred and immediately close their arms. Instead we should open up our arms and look to solve the problems together.

There should be room for everyone in this world.

No matter what you look like, what religion you have or where you come from.

We are all one.

goldswirl

That’s the purpose of this video. To remind all of us how incredibly important love and freedom is and to put something good out into this world. Something that will unite people from all around the globe.

The world is beautiful.

We should all enjoy it together.

Humanity should be our race.

Love should be our religion.

Céline and Jimmy …. “Wheel of Musical Impressions …. Awesome fun”!!

~~July 22, 2016~~ 

GOOD TO SEE CELINE

It’s been a long week.

It’s been a myriad of feelings, an abundance of harsh comments, completely different view points.

At last the RNC is over.

René Angélil, Céline’s beloved husband died on January 14, 2016 after a long battle with cancer.

This is wholesome fun.

A treat, a relief from tension coming from different aspects of our lives and our world.

It’s good to see Céline enjoying herself with Jimmy. 

My face broke into a full, ear to ear smile, watching these two entertainers.

I hope you enjoy this posting and the video.

Céline Dion did work, work, work, work, work on “The Tonight Show” Thursday, July 21.

During a game of “Musical Impressions,” the singer broke out a little bit of Cher and  Michael Jackson, but pulled out all the stops when Rihanna came up.

(Come Mr. DJ song pon de replay.)

Dion sang “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” to the tune of Rihanna’s “Work” before reaching her final form and twerking. 

It’s not necessarily a staccato twerk, but we’ll give it to her.

(P.S. This post doesn’t even mention Dion’s Sia impression. This one’s all about the twerk, twerk, twerk, twerk, twerk.)

Flint, Michigan ….”They Don’t Care About Us”!!

~~February 9, 2016~~ 

“THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT US”

THE TWO MICHAELS

If you haven’t heard about the situation in Flint, Michigan, where the town’s drinking water has been contaminated with lead and other chemicals, you have really been living under a rock.

This is a major health issue, a major political scandal, a major “blaming you, not me” scenario.

Flint, Michigan has a population of roughly 100,000 residents.

Of these, roughly 10,000 are children.

They all have been exposed to water contaminated with corrosive materials and lead.

Many times, songs are vehicles of expression for the people.

I found this video through Michael Moore‘s Facebook page.

I’m sure the “King of Pop” wasn’t thinking about Flint, yet, how “right on target” are this song’s lyrics.

To make matters worse, it seems that Flint isn’t the only city with major water problems.

It seems it could happen anywhere where community policies are driven by greed.

BLine

The Flint water crisis is a drinking water contamination crisis in Flint, Michigan, United States that started in April 2014.

After Flint changed its water source from treated Detroit Water and Sewerage Department water (which was sourced from Lake Huron as well as the Detroit River) to the Flint River, its drinking water had a series of problems that culminated with lead contamination, creating a serious public health danger.

The corrosive Flint River water caused lead from aging pipes to leach into the water supply, causing extremely elevated levels of lead. In Flint, between 6,000 and 12,000 children have been exposed to drinking water with high levels of lead and they may experience a range of serious health problems. The water change is also a possible cause of an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease in the county that has killed 10 people and affected another 77.

“They Don’t Care About Us”

~Published on Feb 5, 2016~

Flint Water Crisis (Michael Moore)

In 2011, the Governor of Michigan took over the city of Flint, a majority-African American city where almost half the population lives below the poverty line. He installed an un-elected “financial manager” to run the city for him.

In 2014, the Governor decided to switch Flint’s drinking water system from the Great Lakes to the toxic Flint River.

This is for the 102,000 men, women and children of Flint who are still being poisoned and lied to.

The Bottle Boys Make Music With Beer Bottles

Meet the Bottle Boys, AKA Flaskedregene. They’re a group of musicians out of Copenhagen who play covers of famous songs on, you guessed it, beer bottles!

Although the act of blowing into an empty bottle to make music is not really new, these guys have taken bottle music to a professional level, and are busy touring and doing concerts around Europe and the rest of the world.

Their website (at the time of writing this) is still under construction, but you can find the Bottle Boys on YouTube or Facebook.

This video is a medley of our favorite movie themes!

For this one we collaborated with Budapest Art Orchestra in Hungary where we recorded the orchestral parts and shot some of the video.

Then we recorded the bottles (and more video) in our own studio in Copenhagen when we got back.

BLine

List of themes

00:34 – 20th Century Fox Theme
00:55 – Hobbit Theme (LoTR)
01:17 – Terminator 2
02:08 – Game of Thrones
02:26 – Pirates of the Caribbean
02:54 – Harry Potter
03:00 – Empire March (Star Wars)
03:22 – Jurassic Park
03:40 – Gremlins
03:53 – Indiana Jones

It’s been one of the biggest video projects we have ever done and we’re really proud of the result and hope you will enjoy it and share it with your friends!

~Nerd Talk~
Music

The orchestral part was recorded on a SSL in Hungary and the bottle music is recorded with an Apogee Quartet Audio Interface and miked with some Neumann km184’s and some Sm57’s for the Terminator trash-percussion. The trailer voice is miked with a Neumann U87.
Graphics

We did everything ourselves including the 20th Century Fox animation in the beginning (using Blender and the Fox model made by Yoshi Twilight/MarioDash2000 (aka IcePony64 on DeviantArt).
