ABHAY’S EARTH ANTHEM 

Amazing! I’ve just learned about this today!

Let the music, the lyrics and the song take you to where your heart wants to go.

GoldSwirl

The Earth Anthem penned by poet-diplomat Abhay K was translated into Portuguese and launched in Brasilia to commemorate World Environment Day.

Abhay had written the anthem in 2008, inspired by the Upanishads and the image of the Earth taken by the Apollo 17 crew. He penned it in Russia’s St Petersburg and so far it has been translated into 30 languages.

According to IANS, he said,

“Whichever country we come from, we all have our planet in common. A tribute to her in the form of an anthem, therefore, should be able to find favour with people from all countries. Such an anthem will not only connect all of us across the world through a common musical thread but will also inspire the next generation to put the planet before themselves.”

For his Earth Anthem, he was termed ‘inspiring’ by UNESCO, Habitat for Humanity, and many others. He has plans of continuing the the Earth Anthem project by collaborating with the world’s leading musicians and singers to create consecutive editions.

TRIP DOWN HISTORY LANE

HOW DID IT BEGIN?

It seems that a lot of effort has been placed in the celebration of our planet, Mother Earth.

In the United States, the ‘Environmental Protection Agency‘ was created to assure that norms and regulations were put in place to do this country’s part in the worldwide effort to protect this planet.

At the time of this writing, it looks like all those efforts are in the process of dismantling by the current EPA top official in association with the Executive branch of the current government.

That cannot be allowed. Grassroot efforts must be undertaken once again to assure that Mother Earth is protected.

In this instance, history MUST repeat itself.

Remember, there is no ‘Planet B’!

 “We need the tonic of wildness – to wade sometimes in marshes where the bittern and the meadow-hen lurk, and hear the booming of the snipe; to smell the whispering sedge where only some wilder and more solitary fowl builds her nest, and the mink crawls with its belly close to the ground. At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be infinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”

EARTH DAY 2018

~THERE’S A LOT DO TO STILL~

I was 20 years old in 1970.

I remember the establishment of this day. I took a summer class in college all about the environment in my country, Puerto Rico. I bought books, I read them all. I became aware of Bill McKibben (The End of Nature), Jeffrey Hollender (How To Make the World a Better Place), The Earthworks Group (50 Simple Things You Can Do series) and many more.

I was young, idealistic adult and a believer that my generation would change things.

As I look back today, it saddens me to see that I was wrong.

More than ever, there’s a lot of work to do today.

Here are some of my ‘green books’!! 

img_8875 Earth Day 1970, an event to increase public awareness of the world’s environmental problems, is celebrated in the United States for the first time.

Millions of Americans, including students from thousands of colleges and universities, participated in rallies, marches, and educational programs.

Earth Day was the brainchild of Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin, a staunch environmentalist who hoped to provide unity to the grassroots environmental movement and increase ecological awareness.

“The objective was to get a nationwide demonstration of concern for the environment so large that it would shake the political establishment out of its lethargy,” Senator Nelson said, “and, finally, force this issue permanently onto the national political agenda.”

Earth Day indeed increased environmental awareness in America, and in July of that year the Environmental Protection Agency was established by special executive order to regulate and enforce national pollution legislation.

Martin Luther King Jr., an American clergyman and civil rights leader, was shot at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee, on April 4, 1968.

He was rushed to St. Joseph’s Hospital, and was pronounced dead at 7:05 p.m. CST. He was a prominent leader of the Civil Rights Movement and a Nobel Peace Prize laureate who was known for his use of nonviolence and civil disobedience.

MLK52

Martin Luther King Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1954 through 1968.

He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights by using the tactics of nonviolence and civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs and inspired by the nonviolent activism of Mahatma Gandhi.

King led the 1955 Montgomery bus boycott and in 1957 became the first president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). With the SCLC, he led an unsuccessful 1962 struggle against segregation in Albany, Georgia, and helped organize the nonviolent 1963 protests in Birmingham, Alabama.

He also helped organize the 1963 March on Washington, where he delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech.

Prolific poet and writer Maya Angelou would’ve turned 90 on Wednesday, April 4, 2018.
To honor and celebrate the phenomenal woman who penned the powerful “Still I Rise,” Google has dedicated the day’s doodle on its search homepage to Angelou, who died in 2014 at age 86.

The doodle is accompanied by an animated reading of “Still I Rise,” featuring the voices of celebrities she influenced, including Oprah Winfrey, Alicia Keys, America Ferrera and Laverne Cox. Her only son, Guy Johnson, also lends his voice.

“Maya Angelou is not what she has done or written or spoken, it’s how she did it all,” Winfrey told Google.

“She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence, and a fiery, fierce grace and abounding love.”

Wednesday also marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., a friend of the author’s.

For more than 30 years, in lieu of celebrating her birthday, Angelou sent flowers to Coretta Scott King on April 4.

JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR

O-M-G!

~Thy Rock ‘N’ Roll Holiness Electrifies In Amped Up Musical Event~

Yesterday, on Easter Sunday, I was visiting family to celebrate the occasion.
I had set my DVR in case I wasn’t home before the show began … and that was the case.

You see, back in 1970, when the LP was released, it became one of my favorite musical ever. I would stay in my room, lyrics in hand, headphones in place … till the wee hours in the morning listening to the music over and over.

Watching the show last night lead to many happy memories and moments of amazing flashbacks.

To my surprise, I remembered most of the lyrics.

For me, back then, the musical represented a state of the times … these being the times of Jesus Christ and the times when the musical production was released. To me, it was an attempt to explain the story of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, Judas, the Apostles and the politico-social reality of the era. It was also an attempt to bring humanity to the characters.

JC1

I found it quite interesting that 48 years after the initial release, the message still rang true and applied to the times we are currently living.

I definitely loved the concert.

I think the set, the musicians, the development concepts and the performances were beyond amazing.

John Legend, Sara Barielles, Alice Cooper and Brandon Victor Dixon were flawless. 

In other words, I loved it!

It’s great that I have it recorded and can watch it over and over and over.

I will buy the DVD for sure when it’s released!

Jesus Christ Superstar is a 1970 rock opera with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice. The musical started as a rock opera concept album before its Broadway debut in 1971.

The musical is mostly sung-through, with little spoken dialogue. The story is loosely based on the Gospels’ accounts of the last week of Jesus’s life, beginning with the preparation for the arrival of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem and ending with the crucifixion. It depicts political and interpersonal struggles between Judas Iscariot and Jesus that are not present in the Bible.

The work’s depiction offers a free interpretation of the psychology of Jesus and the other characters. A large part of the plot focuses on the character of Judas, who is depicted as a tragic figure dissatisfied with the direction in which Jesus steers his disciples. Contemporary attitudes and sensibilities (as well as slang) pervade the lyrics, and ironic allusions to modern life are scattered throughout the depiction of political events. Stage and film productions accordingly contain many intentional anachronisms.

Jc21

It’s only appropriate that NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert aired on Easter Sunday.

There is no better way to celebrate the Holy holiday than with an Easter egg hunt in the day and a live TV adaptation of an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical at night. And when it comes to NBC live musical events, Jesus Christ Superstar ranks at the top.

What could have felt like a dated rock opera was more like an uproarious arena concert filled with screaming fans, frenetic lights, blaring speakers, pyrotechnics and a group of musicians and performers fueled with the spirit of a chaotic electric guitar wildly flailing about – just how Jesus would have wanted it.

Samantha Bee …. “🇵🇷 The Great American Puerto Rico …. FRONTAL ENTERO 🇵🇷 …. “!!


~~March 31, 2018~~

SAMANTHA BEE

THE GREAT AMERICAN PUERTO RICO

Samantha Bee has become one of my favorite late night comedians.

The fact that she went to Puerto Rico, my country, in an attempt to put the spotlight back on the current status of Puerto Rico, makes he more dear to my heart.

The 45 minutes special is included below.

It’s very factual, interesting, educational and funny.

It speaks for itself.

Be prepared for an entertaining and true adventure!

Thanks so very much, Sam, for doing this!

RedLineB

Full Frontal aired a one-hour special from Puerto Rico in which Samantha Bee and her correspondents visit the island that was top-of-show news when Hurricane María hit months ago, leaving 1,000+ dead, about 10K homeless, and 3.4M without power.

The Great American Puerto Rico was taped in February 2018; 103K still were without power, Bee reported, calling it “shameful” given that Puerto Ricans are American citizens.

“If this happened in Connecticut, it would be front page news every day,” she said, adding,

“How did we f*ck this up so badly?!”

Bee says in the special she grabbed her correspondents and rushed to Puerto Rico “to find out what the hell was going on,” telling her crew “Let’s make America give a damn about Puerto Rico.”

During the special Bee announces she had moved her TBS late-night show’s T-shirt production to Puerto Rico, and challenged others to do same, most especially former The Daily Show colleague/current CBS Late Show host Stephen Colbert.

PRSam

Bee had first announced her Puerto Rico special back in January, during another Full Frontal special in which she sent her staff to race around, apologizing on behalf of the United States for all the things Drumpf had done at that point.
