What’s Love Got to Do? Musical Theme for Friday, the 13th of December 2013.

So what’s love got to do with everything? Ask the very incredible Tina Turner, I’m sure she can do more than sing about it. But hear here we’re starting off with a song by an artist well-known for her Celtic treatments, Connie Dover.  Last Night By The River is decidedly not Celtic. It’s based on a Shoshone ‘song’ and it differs decidedly from all the other tracks on The Border of Heaven which offers other love songs, all of which have been sung by others elsewhere–except the song I’ve selected.

Last Night By The River ~ Connie Dover

*

Everything ~ The Doctor and River ~ artist Lifehouse ~ It’s River Song and The Doctor, do I really need to write anything else? I think not. I won’t. Well, yes, I will. Just a little bit. If you’re out of this romantic couple time loop–then you’re missing out on a fabulous love story across time and space.

The Road Home  ~ This is a story about the first couple that marries for love in a little rural village. It’s a very beautiful film visually, musically and story-wise. It often relies totally on music without lyrics.  A must for all hopeless romantics.

 The Road Home – Chinese Movie by Zhang Yimou – with Zhang Ziyi, Sun Honglei, Zheng Hao, Zhao Yuelin – Soundtrack composed by San Bao

Summer Kisses Winter Tears ~ Julee Cruise  ~ Laura Manuel’s description says a lot. Tears of the Black Tiger is also a love story. It’s different. It’s Thai. I love it. The song sings for itself. Oh there are wonderful waterlily images in this film which make it a must for visual artists. The clip does not do the imagery justice.

Laura Manuel :

Tears of the Black Tiger is a 2000 Thai western film written and directed by Wisit Sasanatieng.
With its loud acting style, exuberant sets and stunning shots in pastel colours, it´s one of my favorites movies. In this video i wanted to make a resume of Tears of Black Tiger’s atmosphere.
I made this! 🙂

 Les Temps de l’ Amour ~Francoise Hardy~Moonrise Kingdom ~ Young love, delightful, defiant and dedicated. Moonrise Kingdom is a treat for those of us who adore such things as Bruce Willis not acting in another die-hard flick. Yes, he can act. Who’d have thunk it. Love as an adventure–get packed, don’t forget the music, the books or the cat.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:
It’s time to love,
Time for friends and adventure.
When the time comes and goes,
Can not think of anything despite his injuries.
For the love of time
It is a long and short
It lasts forever, it will be remembered.

It is said that twenty years it is the king of the world
And there will be eternally in our eyes
All the blue sky.

It’s time to love,
Time for friends and adventure.
When the time comes and goes,
Can not think of anything despite his injuries.
For the love of time
It puts you in the heart
Much warmth and happiness.

One day it’s love and the heart beats faster,
Because life goes on
And we are quite happy to be in love.

It’s time to love,
Time for friends and adventure.
When the time comes and goes,
Cannot think of anything despite his injuries.
For the love of time
It is a long and short
It lasts forever, it will be remembered.

Oh, no, I’m not done yet. You’ve met Donne in the prompt post for this theme.  I wonder who would have the musical chops to set Donne’s love songs to music? Any suggestions?

More and Less. Or, Is It Supposed To Be Less or More? Musical Theme. An Open Invitation to Geese and More. Less War desired.

More and Less

Hm…ahhh yes, about that…more and less idea–hmm that’s a wide open invitation. This selection has gone through several incarnations from the wretched to the sublime–sort of –well, Calling All Angels is sublime, isn’t it? It’s not here. ONE got me going in another direction entirely, but this isn’t quite jelly by any means. The entire value concept of 1 the number impressed itself upon my grey matter long enough to get an evolution to unity.  Then, well, things took a few detours.  Mental distractions abound. The range here is from the individual to the national to the global–ha. Is that crazy or what? Plus, there are geese. Now, I don’t want to get into it about why those geese and their song are here. They are. Live with it. Accept it. Once they found their way into this blogcasa, they refused to leave. I refuse to herd them out. So the geese are here to stay. That’s all there is to it, folks. I like them. Of course you can argue that this is a Music Theme about More and Less and that you don’t see or hear how those geese qualify.  Make it easy on all of us and just consider them in the More category. Okay? They add a certain nonsensical ambiance which I require at the moment. Give them time and they’ll grow on you too. I’m sure of it.

Now I’m fairly certain the Mores and Lesses are self-explanatory. If they’re not, please feel free to place an inquiry in the comments boxes below the posting. Yes, down there. No, you don’t have to go to Australia to get down under the post. But you can if you really feel the need.

More love, compassion and kindness.  No geese, just a little hound.

Less, less, less all around. Oh 1989 may seem outdated to some folks, but I think memories need refreshing just as much as computer pages.  The organizers of this bid for freedom paid a high price in general. So much for the free world . . . .. Geese are leaving this to the Peking ducks.

Less of all the issues regarding the handling of this event. I think the video maker is very clear about those issues. Offended? Well, isn’t that the point? These aren’t the only people left to hang out to dry by the people who ought to help them.  They represent so many others around the world affected by callous indifference of their government leaders.  Geese are steering clear for the moment.

La Tierra Del Olvido   ~ Playing for Change

PlayingForChange

http://playingforchange.com – Today we are proud to share a new video titled, “La Tierra Del Olvido” (The Land of The Forgotten), featured on our PFC 2 CD/DVD.

More, more, more — no music, well a little,  just Urban Farming Guys in Action showing what CAN be done. Yes, it’s not just a world of abstract possibilities. It’s a world of concrete manifestation too. That’s why the Urban Farming Guys are ‘here’.  When they make a music video I’ll share it.  Yeah, um, do they do geese? I’ll check.

The Revolutions of 1989 – Yes, plural–in case you weren’t paying attention at the time or marooned in a part of the usa which does not concern itself with a damn thing beyond the gravel county line road, the events of 1989 in other parts of the world might have escaped your notice. Or you may not have been born yet, in order to pay attention or to care about paying attention now. A sad but true state of mind affairs for some folks.  Hence, an offering of a very brief historical capsule w/ background music.

The San Patricios Battalion

Sung By: David Rovics http://www.davidrovics.com/

SAN PATRICIOS – THE IRISHMEN WHO DIED FOR MEXICO
Saint Patrick’s Battalion, “The San Patricios,” a notable arm of the Mexican Army during the Mexican-American War of 1846-1848.

Dubious about why they were fighting a Catholic country and fed up with mistreatment by their Anglo-Protestant officers, hundreds of Irish, German and other immigrants deserted Taylor’s army and joined forces with Mexico.

Led by Capt. John Riley of Co. Galway, they called themselves the St. Patrick’s Battalion (in Spanish, the San Patricios) and fought against their former comrades in all the major campaigns of the war.

The history of the San Patricios is a woeful tale of angry, bewildered, naive, or calculating young men, from varied backgrounds, who deserted for a myriad of reasons and paid a fearful price.

The San Patricios, in the words of one Mexican general, “deserved the highest praise, because they fought with daring bravery.” But eventually, Mexico surrendered, ceding almost half its territory to the United States.

Each San Patricio who deserted from the US side was interned after the war in Mexico and subsequently given an individual court-martial trial. Many of the Irish were set free, but some paid the ultimate price. Roughly half of the San Patricio defectors who were executed by the US for desertion were Irish

No, I’m not going to tell you the name of the song. Guess or watch the video online to find out. Raspberries for everyone. Both kinds. All kinds.

For the moment…yeah there’s more dawning/coming.  So much change everywhere.

Freedom To Be Free ~ Who Said There Could Be Music?

freedom

being free

is a not a package bought in a store

mental, physical, political, social, spiritual, emotional . . .

wars in many forms

outworn hearts torn

open

freedom

if everyone wants to be free

why aren’t we?

Poland’s Dirge  by Chopin

myyellowlabfan

Chopin left Poland around 1830, just before the uprising of the Polish people against the government… This song, which was never meant to be published, was one of the songs that he composed for friends and private occasions, or just for himself… although it was not dated, I think it was about the tragic end to that uprising, when he was afraid for his family and friends still in Poland, and for the Polish people, and their hopes for freedom… Aleksandra Kurzak sings this patriotic song with a lovely legato line and a heartbreaking and exquisite sensitivity to the text and music…
Nelson Goerner is her excellent accompanist.

The words are important – here they are in English

Tree, so free and noble, fast thy leaves are falling!
From the grave a bird with mournful note is calling:
O! Poland misfortune hate thy home o’ertaken,
thy truehearted children from death shall never waken,
Ev’ ry town and village lonely watch is keeping,
Through the fields deserted wander women weeping,
All the sturdy reapers hath the wartime needed,
And the corn, fully ripened drop the grains unheeded

Warsaw saw the banners which our youths unfolded
Free united Poland shall in glorious form be molded.
And they fought in winter, fought when suns were burning
and the autumn found us still for freedom yearning
All in vain for freedom strove our valiant brothers
None were left to comfort Poland’s mourning mothers.

Did they fall in battle? Captive were they taken?
Did they haply wander homeless and forsaken?
Heaven itself hath left us, left us here to languish:
God and man desert us in our bitter anguish

O! unhappy Poland! unhappy Poland! O! Poland, O! Poland,
Were thy sons restored to us, could the brave that perished
Help once more afford us… All dismay and terror
from our breast would vanish, war no more our dear ones
from our homes would banish.

Though by hands of traitors, Poland’s freedom perish,
Still of Poland’s heroes shall the mem’ry flourish..

Breakfast Special, #31, “Mrs. Ling’s Office Supply Salvage Service at Your Disposal”

“Mrs. Ling’s Office Supply Salvage Service at Your Disposal”

*

*

DeeDee Ling was having another bonanza night regarding the treasures she was finding in nearly each and every office desk trash can on her floor this cleaning shift. This was her third red-letter trash find work shift this week. Usually the pickings were this good just maybe twice a month when payday rolled around for half the office workers. The neon green plastic recycle bag on her cart was overflowing with an abundance of reuseable office supplies running the gamut from several sheets of expensive high quality photography paper to a quarter full box of mini staples to the opened but full box of letter sized envelopes discarded, according to the writing on the box, since it could not be returned for a box of the desired envelopes because it was now a discontinued item.

DeeDee figured this was the universe’s way of repaying her for doing Rosa a good turn by letting her use the office machine she’d salvaged from the trash in order to make copies of the pages of a little grey book. Her own little home office supply shelves had been in serious need of replenishing on the day Rosa had come round asking about what her machine could do. Every work shift since Rosa’s visit had bought all sorts of excellent goodies DeeDee’s way. Her home office shelves were not only fully restocked with items salvaged from the office building’s trash bins, but there was overflow as well, an heretofore unknown state of affairs in her little workroom.

To insure more of this good fortune, DeeDee was giving serious consideration to the notion that it might be a good idea to inform Rosa that she was quite willing to provide any typing or other office service, including the use of the very versatile machine, for Rosa at no charge whenever she had need of it.  Finding not one, but two nearly full postage stamp dispensers, in the trash cans of two different offices, clinched the free deals for Rosa idea. Discovering unused stamps in the trash was as good as finding money straight up in DeeDee Ling’s mind. Two nearly full rolls inside two dispensers, one whose plastic casing had cracked in such a manner that prevented easy dispensing and removal of the roll, and the other one perfectly sound, giving DeeDee reason to think that it might simply have been the causality of some mindless autopilot desk cleaning, sealed the deal for her decision to provide Rosa with unlimited services and supplies. After all, there were nearly two hundred dollars in postage stamps sitting snug and neatly rolled inside a couple of cheap plastic holders. If this treasure find wasn’t a direct result of kindly sharing salvaged resources with neighborhood friends, then DeeDee Ling didn’t know what was.

*

*

Little did DeeDee know that this line of reasoning was not only going to bring her considerably more good fortune in diverse and unexpected forms, but would also provide her with a great deal of personal entertainment and vindication while doing Rosa a favor. She would have the means to create what she deemed an appropriate vehichle for exacting more than a tad of personal revenge for a certain sort of rampant bigotry expressed via questionable humor running amok amongst the people who occupied the offices from nine to five pm daily Monday through Friday. While it was clear to Mrs. Ling that not everyone on the fifth floor found the crass stereotypical Asian cartoons and jokes amusing, she deduced from the prominent display for sharing and commentary in many offices that the majority of the employees were indeed heartily amused at the expense of her own cultural heritage. Her offended sensibilities would soon prompt her to quite willingly join Rosa in a little spontaneous brainstorming session involving more than the trash can resources at her fingertips five nights a week: copy machines, bulk postage mail codes, access to the outgoing mail depository, typewriters, and a few other handy office gadgets that were no worse for the wear after a little night shift break time employment.

In return, one of the boys in Rosa’s care drew a cartoon in line with DeeDee’s thinking regarding the base nature of bigots everywhere. DeeDee supplied the cutting satiric caption herself after receiving Miguel’s more than adequate artistic interpretation of her desired images.  Another sort of payload arrived on the day the fusebox in her building blew thereby alerting everyone to the presence of over a foot of icy cold water in the basement. Not only had the very tall white man Rosa sent to deal with the blown fusebox fixed that longstanding problem, but he’d put the leaking water pipes to rights and then managed to get the water draining out of the basement using several garden hoses Mr. Ling borrowed from the neighbors. All he requested in return for his time and labor was the recipe for her favorite cookie. Mrs. Ling made him a copy in under ten seconds then taped it to the Tupperware container stuffed full of her very own special Szechuan Shrimp Lo Mein which he accepted with a surprised smile and a rather becoming streak of blush on his cheeks. Mrs. Ling did not waste any time debating about sharing the information that the services of a new gringo handyman in the neighborhood could be had for a very modest trade fee of shrimp and a recipe song.

Color, Music, and Emotion

GoogleTechTalks

June 30, 2011

Presented by Stephen E. Palmer
Professor of the Graduate School
Psychology & Cognitive Science
University of California, Berkeley

ABSTRACT

Arnheim (1986) once speculated that different aesthetic domains (e.g., color and music) might be related to each other through common emotional associations. We investigated this hypothesis by having participants pick from among an array of 37 colors the five colors that went best (and later the five that went worst) with each of a set of 18 brief samples of classical orchestral music that varied in composer (Bach/Mozart/Brahms), tempo (slow/medium/fast), and mode (major/minor). They also rated each musical selection and each color for its emotional associations (happy-sad, lively-dreary, strong-weak, angry-calm). Systematic mappings were found between the dimensions of color and music: faster music and major mode were associated with lighter, more saturated, yellower colors, whereas slower music and minor mode were associated with darker, desaturated, bluer colors. More precisely controlled musical stimuli (single-line melodies by Mozart on a synthesized piano) produced more refined relations between the music and the colors chosen to go with them. These color-music mappings are mediated by common emotional associations, because the correlation between emotional ratings of the musical selections and emotional ratings of the colors chosen to go with them were extremely high (.90 to .98) for all emotional dimensions studied (e.g., people picked happy colors to go with happy music and dreary colors to go with dreary music). The mediating role of emotion was established by obtaining analogous effects when people picked the colors that went best (and worst) with faces and body poses that expressed emotions (happy-sad and angry-calm). Similarly high correlations were obtained when the emotional ratings of the faces/gestures were compared with corresponding emotional ratings of the colors chosen to go with them. Further findings identify a stable aesthetic difference between people in terms of their level of “preference for harmony” across the domains of color combinations, musical compositions, shape preferences, and spatial composition within a rectangular frame.

Well, yeah, I got a little carried away with Johnny’s theme, Political/Activist–Musical Selections. I feel like I haven’t even scratched the surface here. There are so many ways to go with this theme.  Hmm.  Oh well, it is what it is.  Namaste.

Tibet:

“Tibetans  challenge XI Jinping – Gangnam Style.

Upload by   SFTHQ   http://www.youtube.com/user/SFTHQ?feature=watch

Published on Nov 7, 2012

On the eve of the CCP’s 18th Party Congress, Students for a Free Tibet and the International Tibet Network release a parody video titled “Tibetans challenge Xi Jinping – Gangnam Style.” A takeoff of Korean star Psy’s uber-popular Gangnam Style, the video features China’s heir apparent as a dimwit — a big-headed oaf whose only response to Tibetans’ growing resistance is to arrest, beat and torture protestors. But Xi — like the four generations of undemocratic CCP heads before him — cannot stop Tibetans who are moving beyond fear and challenging the very foundations of Chinese rule in Tibet. Ultimately, the joke is on Xi Jinping, the soon to be leader of the unfree world and a remnant of authoritarian rulers of the past. Xi: Resolve the Tibet crisis now or Tibet will soon become your biggest headache.

Join Tibet’s Xi Challenge:
http://www.xijinping-tibetchallenge.org/

About the making of this video: Using the power of humor and theater, this video highlights the cruelty and absurdity of the Chinese government’s colonial policies in Tibet that have driven 63 Tibetans to set themselves on fire in protest of Chinese rule; 50 this year alone. It also depicts some of the creative protest tactics being used by Tibetans to challenge China’s occupation, including a 2011 boycott of Chinese vegetable vendors. This video will be banned in China and Tibet but Beijing’s censors cannot stop the truth from spreading: Xi Jinping, China’s 5th generation leader will be the last to rule Tibet. Above all, this video is a call to action to the world, urging individuals and governments to help the Tibetan people in their nonviolent struggle for freedom.

Madison, WI, USA:

Two Weeks In Madison WI, A Tribute, The music is “Wander My Friends” by Bear McCreary

TheVoiceOfWisconsin

BEFORE there was “Occupy”  the people of Wisconsin occupied the Capital Building in protest.  This ongoing event was IGNORED by most of mainstream media in the United States.  Other countries sent reporters to cover what was happening in Madison while the major networks in the USA did their best to ignore it. Democracy Now! was one of the few American news outlets that provided coverage. Students, teachers, firefighters, farmers and people from every social economic class in WI joined together with the Wisconsin 14 who did the only thing they could to stop The Bill–they exiled themselves from the state of WI.

“Tell Me What Democracy Looks: This is What Democracy Looks Like” —Inside the Capital building in Madison–this was not a fifteen minute protest. This continued for days on end until Gov. Scot Walker found ways to keep the people out of the building. Enlarge the video to full screen and watch for the round ‘food’ tray, I think it’s bread, come to the drummers through the crowd.

Idle No More

Bullet Proof

No Time For Apathy

Fair Use – For Educational Purposes Only (feel free to mirror)I do not own any of the material (music, images & video).Watch in HD/Full Screen and read the following before starting the video.The following video tries to cover 1200 years of History (from my perception, I live in BC so there is a couple of issues that are close to my heart that are represented), relating to the indigenous peoples of North America from the Viking, Spanish and British invasions, to current. It is an attempt to cover a long time frame in a short period of time and I mean no disrespect to anyone. It is a show of support for the “Idle No More” campaign, and to show my support towards peaceful protests. The images and videos used are meant to portray a general overview and are not meant to cast all non indigenous individuals in a bad light. I believe most human beings are on the same page when it comes to equality and fair treatment.It is a little blunt, but sometimes there is no way around it…..Music:”Titanium” – David Guetta cover by: Boyce Avenue

I know I should decide on a version of the same song but I can’t.  So take your pick. The first offers the incredible live crowd. The second offers images from the film “Cry Freedom”.

Occupy Oakland Port Shut down   “Be My Own Radio”

sftimecap

Bay musical group we dont know their name provides musical context for the joy and pride felt by of all those present at the Port of Oakland Shut Down, today, 11.2.11. This non-violent action was done in the most peaceful and loving way in the HISTORY OF MANKIND! The people of Oakland, CA have showed the rest of us how to stand together and continue this move towards true democracy and true economic repair of the chronic and cynical damage inflicted on the 99 by the greed of the 1%.

To provide a sense of the number of people involved, here is Helicopter ‘music’ from the air view provided by a news cam. Soon after there would be no more of these views as the local television stations ceased reporting to the public the huge turnout. Probably in an effort to NOT inform and encourage others to participate. The main coverage was via people live-streaming the event on the ground via smart phones and laptops to online  livestream sites where thousands more people watched on the world wide web.

Occupy Oakland called for a general strike on the Port of Oakland, the 5th Largest port in the United States. They held the Port for 20+ hours stopping out incoming and outgoing cargo trucks.

Everything about the Earth and the environment is now Political–there’s no getting around it–the issues with pollution, food, water, destruction of our environment all comes down to the influence of corporations on politics. So–there’s no way I could not go here to people and the planet.

Space ~ what’s between your ears?

Hey folks, this post is the result of a brainstorm shared with bearspawprint. We’re both posting music connected to Space–as in “the final frontier”–actually I think the final frontier entails an exploration of interior space, but that’s not on the docket today. Except a little, yeah, it’s here too. Bearspawprint will also post her choices for Space today  –>> http://bearspawprint.wordpress.com/   & here –>>  http://bearspawprint.wordpress.com/music-themes-space/   .

You are cordially invited to explore all this SPACE to your ears’ content–or dispute. Please share your own favorite music connected to Space at will..

Star Trek travels in one direction while Babylon 5, well, it was/is Babylon 5.  Over the years any science fiction fan has seen and heard any number of battles in space. What would any of these be like without powerful music? So take this for what its worth–dramatic images of a battle in space with solid strong music that brings the action to life–of all things. Imagine that.
