Hermes -I had the pleasure of seeing Leonard Cohen the last time he was in Detroit, which was about 5 years ago...show was at the Fox Theatre, and my wife and I had first row seats in the balcony, and it was one of the best shows I've ever attended.
....

Father, I would have loved to see him perform. What a memory.

down to zero


love and affection

show some emotion

Back in the day I went along with some friends to see a surf movie at the opera house.  I remember Down to Zero and slow mo' barrels. 

I didn't become a Joan adherent, I was open but she seemed to be mostly ordinary.
These three songs though, 9,10, 11 on an album, pretty sweet I think.

I've been a fan and admirer of the pianist George Winston since I was in my late teens, and have listened to him consistently since that time...few things in life never change, whether for good or bad, but his music always brings peace, relaxation.

We had family get together over the weekend, and after we had dinner we were all sitting around talking and I put this album on and for a short time the room got quite as everyone recognize the melody, and then my oldest sister looked over at me and gave me a smile and nod of her head. It was her who introduced me to the music so long ago and the beauty of it is something we've shared over the years.


I highly recommend adding this entire album to your collection...

This is the full album.

One of my favorites, and I play this on the guitar is, "Variations on the Kanon" (Track 9)
Every taco is hand rolled with exotic Mexican spices by genuine Mayan Virgins.
Or. Carlos, depending on who's available.

I really, really hate anti-semantics.

I found this music video.
I like it, I'm sure some of you will hate it.
It might not be appropriate for those with a weak constitution.
Here it is:


“I've had several "spiritual" or numinous experiences over the years, but never felt that they were the product of anything but the workings of my own mind in reaction to the universe.” ~Recusant

"Color me fascinated..." ~Asmodean, The Gray God.

Mags, That was a seriously weird video.  Have you been into the sauce in a serious way?

The beginning of Part 2 of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. Such sweet, gorgeous, yet delightfully ominous dissonance. (Well, obviously the subject matter of the ballet is not so delightful, but that music)

I was fortunate enough to get play the whole piece on bassoon, I dream of getting to do it again with oboe and English horn.

That piece, and Stravinsky as a whole always remind me of "Bugs Bunny at the Symphony"  ;D..."Kill De Rabbit"!

Anyway congratulation on getting to play Harmonie, that's very cool. 8)



In a slightly different vein the following young artist who goes by the name of "Alice Phoebe Lou" is also very cool, and I'm really enjoying her music...she's my new fav.

This song "She" is very, very cool indeed,... and I also like her rendition of Lou Reed's, "Walk on the Wild Side". I highly, highly recommend giving these a listen to, don't think you'll be disappointed!

"She"

Lol. "Kill De Rabbit" is actually set to Wagner, Ride of the Valkyries. I'm not super familiar with the opera/set of operas it comes from (The Ring), but I'm pretty sure the episode you linked to is all about that opera cycle, as Bugs Bunny is referred to as "Brunehilda" and that's a character from the opera cycle.
