My Take on the 2018 EuroTrash Song Contest

Posted on Updated on

Snapshot_46

This is the best that EuroTrash from the false EU can produce. What a horrible joke. I was gobsmacked by the banality. Give me the Old Europe (the Real Europe) any day — the producer of Bach, Vivaldi, Telemann, Zelenka, Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Mendelsohn, Schubert, Brahms, Bruckner, Mahler, etc. How far we have strayed!  Read the rest of this entry »

Mahler’s Crazy Rondo Burleske

Posted on

I KNOW MOST OF YOU PROBABLY DO NOT HAVE THE TIME to listen to a complete Mahler symphony (lasting between 1 and 1½ hours!). You are far too busy and important people to be wasting your life infusing yourselves with divine musical nectar from one of the most deep and spiritual composers to have graced this planet. 😉 But could I tempt you to set aside your super-busy-ness to spend just 12 minutes of your life listening to one little part of his 9th Symphony? Actually, this particular part (or “movement” as it’s called) is especially relevant to “super-busy-ness”. Shockingly so. Let me explain: Read the rest of this entry »

LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #30: “Love-Dust Dream”

Posted on Updated on

 

Been living underground;
there, water’s deep and most of me drowned.
It’s of no consequence;
tore down some walls — undid all pretence
[climbed off the fence]

I have no table here;
walked on hot coals and burned away fear.
For I’ve lost everything
except this dreamful song that I sing
[flowers I bring]

Shadows of Daddyo, Part 1 [song lyric]

Posted on Updated on

You think when you’re controlling
the random things unfolding
along the frozen path you tread (so dead)
that somehow you’ll defend your
imagined roundyourself wall
which you’ve built up with years of pain (insane)

[Refrain]
I’ve felt the sting of your bite.
I wonder who it was stole your delight?

You long for no adventure!
That invite that he sent ya
just made you stop dead in your tracks (that’s a fact!)
You’re frightened of commitment
you don’t have the equipment
to handle what it takes to blend (surrender)
