I was talking to a new friend the other day about music. One of those, “What type of music do you listen to conversations…?” I mentioned that through the 90s up until today I like a lot of the woman singers out there.
Might of had a crush on Stevie Nicks back in the day. Maybe Heart…
But as an adult I was impressed with the Alanis Morissette and Avril Lavigne type.
Today I was out surfing blogs and stopped in at one of my favorites, Harsh Reality. (This place always makes me laugh. Love the opinions of the Opinionated Man). He had the following video up of Christina Perri:
Christina is one of my latest favorites. I just love her “look”. The tattoos, combat boots with the wedding dress. But mostly her teeth. I know. That’s a weird comment. I don’t have any teeth fetishes (not sure if there is even a tooth fetish?) But the fact that her bottom teeth are crooked. It just adds to her imperfections which in my opinion, make her attractive. I’m a screwed up mess, what can I say?
Your gonna catch a cold from the ice inside of your soul.
Power, thought provoking, deep? Or maybe just my tooth fetish?
My father, literary genius and published author, always sends out an email each year. Instead of telling you about it, I will repost it. All credit goes to my father, Terry.
As has become my custom in relatively recent years, I again provide my annual public service by attaching the lyrics to “Auld Lang Syne” complete with a modern translation.
Brother Robert Burns, the prophet of international brotherhood, was a poet, patriot, Mason, and song writer. He died in Dumfries, Scotland at the age of 37 on 21 July, 1796. Some 12,000 people from all walks of life attended his funeral. Burns had not only the vision of a better world, but the capacity to articulate that message. He was a revolutionary reformer, a vigorous and tireless opponent of oppression, privilege, hypocrisy, and racism. He is not only for Scotland, but for all the world; he was one of that small band who wrote for all time and for all people. He left to the world teachings of brotherhood, honesty, pride, and the interdependence of love and friendship. He voiced the spirit of equality and was unswerving in his devotion to liberty. If only political parties, commercial organizations, and individuals would adopt his personal credo: “Whatever mitigates the woes, or increases the happiness of others, this is my criterion of goodness, and whatever injures society at large, or any individual in it, this is my measure of iniquity!”
So lift a “guide willie waught” and bring in 2015 singing boldly and fervently this age old hymn of love and friendship. It is my wish for you and yours a most happy and prosperous new year.
