Song of the Day – Day 6 – Hozier – Take me to Church
download (3)

Before I start this post, I need to point out the obvious that I haven’t been on for a few days. I have been super busy in work as I am covering 2 people who are off as well as trying to do my own work.  Needless to say, I am struggling to post daily but I am going to post my songs of the day. They might not be posted on the right day but there will be one for every day in April none the less.

This song is song 6 and it is Hozier – Take me to Church.

This is a much more modern song than I usually post about but it is still one I love. This song written and released by Hozier in 2014. This was his debut single and was recorded in his attic after a bad breakup. He wasn’t signed at this point but the demo caught the eye of independent music label Rubyworks who then signed Hozier up and released the single.  The single got to number 1 in many countries including Austria, Czech Republic, Italy, and many others but only got to number 2 in the UK and the US but for a debut single that’s not too shabby.  It was also certified triple platinum in the UK and 5x Platinum in the US, as well as going platinum multiple times in 11 other countries and further 3 countries.

Here are the lyrics:

My lover’s got humour
She’s the giggle at a funeral
Knows everybody’s disapproval
I should’ve worshipped her sooner

If the heavens ever did speak
She’s the last true mouthpiece
Every Sunday’s getting more bleak
A fresh poison each week

“We were born sick,” you heard them say it

My church offers no absolutes
She tells me, “Worship in the bedroom.”
The only heaven I’ll be sent to
Is when I’m alone with you

I was born sick
But I love it
Command me to be well
Aaay. Amen. Amen. Amen.

[Chorus 2x:]
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

If I’m a pagan of the good times
My lover’s the sunlight
To keep the Goddess on my side
She demands a sacrifice

Drain the whole sea
Get something shiny
Something meaty for the main course
That’s a fine-looking high horse
What you got in the stable?
We’ve a lot of starving faithful

That looks tasty
That looks plenty
This is hungry work

[Chorus 2x:]
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me my deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

No Masters or Kings
When the Ritual begins
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin

In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
Only then I am human
Only then I am clean
Ooh oh. Amen. Amen. Amen.

[Chorus 2x:]
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

Covenant Alien Movie Releasing Soon
April 12, 2017

I am a big fan of alien movies for obvious reasons. It has the thrill and the stuff that I always wanted to check out. I wanted to see how this movie was coming out to be. I found out that based on spoilers this movie is going to have more questions than answers. So this can be worth watching. Based on the popularity around the trailers. I think this is going to be a good movie if you can see the performance of the fassbender from the last movie. It seems he just keeps getting better with each role that he is playing these days. In this article I just want to discuss what are some of the ways this movie is going to be playing out.

Warning the post may contain some spoilers.

Teraforming

It seems the people in the movie are into teraforming planet. And they are basically falling for the planet which was infected by the David from earlier movie. And this means this can be a good movie based on what we are seeing from previous aliens movies. I am not sure where is the Prometheus connecting with this. But it seems the terraforming seems to be main objective in the movie.

Violence

As this is another alien movie so you can expect some level of violence. And things are going to be gory. And this means the people who are in the movie may find new ways to die in this planet and on the ship. But it can be worth watching. As there is going to be a new type of the alien before we see the final one. I think it’d be worth noting how the movie is going to end as well. Based on trailer it seems it’ll have some nice ending.

Are you looking forward to this type of the alien movies?

Song of the Day – Day 5 – What a Wonderful World – Louis Armstrong
download (1)

What a wonderful World was written in 1967 by George Douglas and George David Weiss. It was first recorded and released by Louis Armstrong after Tony Bennet turned it down (I bet he regrets that). Strangely it was a bit of a flop in the US only selling 1000 copies but it was an instant hit in the UK getting to the top of the charts. At the time of release Louis Armstrong was 66 years old and the oldest male to reach the top spot in the UK. A record that was later broken. As well as reaching number 1 in the UK, it also reached number 1 in Austria, Number 2 in Denmark, and Ireland. It re-charted in 1976 in Italy at number 11 and again in 14 countries in 1988, peaking at number 1 in Austria and Belgium.

 

Here are the lyrics:

I see trees of green,
red roses too.
I see them bloom,
for me and you.
And I think to myself,
what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue,
And clouds of white.
The bright blessed day,
The dark sacred night.
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow,
So pretty in the sky.
Are also on the faces,
Of people going by,
I see friends shaking hands.
Saying, “How do you do?”
They’re really saying,
“I love you”.

I hear babies cry,
I watch them grow,
They’ll learn much more,
Than I’ll ever know.
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

Yes, I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

Oh yeah.

What are your thoughts on this song? It is an all time favourite of mine. I just love the positive vibe and happiness that the song is aiming to spread. Songs nowadays are old too negative or aggressive or just about sex. This is a perfect remedy for that.

As always I would love to hear your views so let me know what you think 🙂

5 Reasons Why I like Old Comedy Shows
April 11, 2017

12we

I think the days of old comedy are back again. I have found that new comedy shows have most of the bad stuff in them. And the amount of the content being bombarded at us makes it really not worth consuming. I have found that some of the old shows from around the world make such shows lot better. I think a lot of those shows if get comeback, then I am sure that will surely make things lot better. Because these days humor is more of drama than the humor itself. In this article I want to explain the 10 reasons why I find the old comedy shows lot better. That being said, let’s take a look at those 10 reasons.

1. Simple Humor

Earlier the humor was easy. You could find it in some easy places. You don’t have to do insult of other people. You don’t have to make fun of someone badly for the humor. For example charlie Chaplin humor was not racist and he was not typical stand up comedian. You still get the humor out of it. So that goes to show you how it worked.

2. Ageless Humor

Have you ever watched roast and comedy shows where they insult each other? You can see that roast is definitely not good for the kids and the people who are sensitive towards the profanity. And that is one reason I find the ageless humor in old times lot better. Why it is good because it takes into consideration of people of all ages. Say for example tom and jerry cartoon. It has ageless humor.

3. No profanity

Almost every comedy movie today has profanity and adult content. And that is not how the comedy should be. Because we are not growing with that sort of content. I don’t want to see my kids growing up in profanity as a norm. So it has to be controlled on many grounds. And one has to focus on the development of the content better. It should not allow the profanity to be something part of like that.

4. Racism

In real world we all are facing the racism. And we have known the effects of it. Many comedy shows make use of it in a wrong way. I think one has to use the racism in proper way to make comedy. Not hurting people in any way. I think modern comedy fails to do that these days. So surely that is not a good sign at all. I am sure there are people who know how to handle that but it is not easy.

5. Stereotype

I think many times the males in the show are stereotyped. And nobody talks about. As much as women are stereotyped and often get relief from it. You can find that males too go through this process. I think one has to manage the stereotype and not get washed up with it. Because that way things can be as bad as they can get. You can find most of the modern comedy make use of the stereotype and create comedy. And that in itself can be really bad. So that’s something worth checking out. You have to consider how that can help on lot of grounds.

These are some of my observations. I am sure with time things will change but for now I don’t see that happening anytime soon.

Posting your videos at Vimoe site

I have vimeo account and I like to post diy videos, or just things kids do

I like to share it with friends and family and sometimes the world to make fun only, 15 videos I have so far, and though I soped for sometime due to my work. Later I am going continue making more diy videos.

I do not know why some likes to steal other peoples work?

Luckily there is copyright laws in Vimeo and that make people happy that the site will catch and ban any person tries to take other peoples work. You figure out your way of making videos

What features Vimeo have

I like creating a channel name it what I want, feels like you own a tv station. There you put your tubes

I would like to comment on other videos, which they make for fun or to express an opinion, its really nice social media to communicate with other around the world and stuff like that do teach you little about other places

There I like to write sometimes about creative expression or when I do something at home like diy projects I like to see what the people think of it and if they have some comment

I did not become famous on vimeo but I have lots of followers. And posts videos twice a week or so, because I like communicating with the people that liked this channed. I like vimeo more than other video sharing sites. Why? it allows me to find out immediately when people rate my work. The only thing I hate there is the ads I hate it and I wish im able to choose the ads they are playing with my videos , I feel its the least of my rights? Am I right?  Vimeo is great learning and sharing your site for young and any age

Cath likes her hobby that and gives it all of her life but life surprise her with something that breaks the heart, and make her stop her hobby. She is starting another chapter of her life, its really hard ask for much power to adjust.

Then she meets Levi, the new boyfriend, he asks people to read books as he listen. Love starts gradually and the relationship doesn’t show at first. Cath in her new finding her self, try to concentrate on her goal that is why she doesn’t notice the love the one that make them see each other all the time.

There is also deep love that make simon and baz closer, this love story is written by cath her self. Yes it like you are watching two stories at same time so that is fangirl, have to say the author is good in choosing the name of the book, so unique.

Fangirl

Fangirl and just listen are new books that I finished and wanted to share with you these nice light books enjoyable anywhere

Feuds on Sets; How Actor’s Write Their Burn Notice
_95460799_knight_washington_getty

One of the problems with actors are their egos.   Each one thinks s/he is superior.   When the Star, the one people turn on to watch has this attitude, well, the little co-stars either accept or get fired.   When the co-stars believe they are more important than the star, they are gone so fast one doesn’t remember they were there.

The most obvious was on Star Trek, The Next Generation.

Just as it happened in the Original Series, the public focused on the ‘Alien’.   In The Original Series, (TOS) it was Mr. Spock.  He was played by Leonard Nimoy.  The Star was William Shatner, who played James T. Kirk.

As William Shatner knew it was the show that mattered, and liked Leonard Nimoy, the two got on, and stayed together, through Star Trek, into movies, and were friends until Leonard Nimoy died.

This was similar to the intellect exhibited by Robert Vaugn in relation to David McCallum on Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Illya Kuricham was supposed to be a temporary character, but the public loved him, so David McCallum moved up to co-star and stayed on the series until it ended, and Robert Vaugn was cool about that.

On Star Trek, The Next Generation, Denise Crosby (Tasha Yar) felt that Michael Dorn, (Worf) was getting too much attention and she should get more.  No one cared about her or her character, so she was killed off, and Michael Dorn has continued to play Worf until the end of The Next Generation, into Deep Space Nine, into the various movies.   Denise Crosby disappeared.

On The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, everyone tuned in to see Will Smith.  He was the star.   The female actress who played Aunt Viv in the first three seasons, Janet Hubert, was annoyed that Will Smith got so much air time and she so little.   She was replaced in the third season and went into oblivion.

On the Good Wife,  Julianna Margulies, the star was the best friend of Archie Panjabi.   In the show, the characters had an argument, and stopped being friends.    This was real, and because the two could function, and the plot could function, Panjabi stayed until the sixth season although she and Margulies never appeared together on screen.

One of the most memorable was that between Isaiah Washington and TR Knight. On Grey’s Anatomy.   Washington, had made an anti-gay comment during a heated argument on set.

Washington played Doctor Preston Burke who later married Christine Yang (Sandra Oh).    Knight played intern George O’Malley.

After the argument,  Burke walked out on Yang at their wedding, and George was killed soon thereafter.  Thus ending the ‘conflict’.    Katherine Heigl, who had played Izzie Stephens got into an argument over money, and she was gone as well.   No one much noticed the absence of these ‘stars’.

In fact, if I didn’t mention it, you would not remember them either.

Raven-Symoné and My Take on TV Talk Shows
tinker bell

Do you remember little Raven-Symoné? Little cutie first introduced to us on the popular TV series, “The Bill Cosby Show”.

 

(BTW: Really sorry to hear about what Bill Cosby is going through with the various allegations about sexual misconduct or criminal acts. Such a great talent and he made quite a mark in the entertainment business. However, if it’s true that he did what they say he did? Nail him!)

 

Raven ThisIsMyTimeBut I digress. This post is about Raven-Symoné of “That’s So Raven”. She was also the voice of Iridessa, one of Tinker Bell’s tiny fairy friends in the popular animation films about Disney Fairies. She was also one of the original Cheetah girls. Could go on and on about this lady. But here’s the bottom line, by the time she was about 25 years old, she didn’t need to work any more cause she was stinking filthy rich! She was an icon!! The girl has her own clothing line and dolls!!

 

June 2015, the buzz was that she was picked to be a co-host of the TV talk show “The View”.  That is evidently BIG! Good for her. “The View” is only a talk show that I never watch and now that she’ll be co-hosting it will still NOT be on my watch list.

 

Fact is, TV talk shows really aren’t my thing. American TV talks shows, that is. Rather like the foreign ones though. Like Koffee with DD . 🙂 

 

Actually, to be fair, back in the day (as in throwback) on US television when there were awesome guys like Dick Cavett and David Frost ~   those were real talk shows.  Don’t know what happened but the interest in those kinds of shows has diminished for me.

 

If I were going to recommend a talk show as of today, April 2017, it would have to be Tavis Smiley . His show airs on PBS (Public Broadcasting Service) and even though I am not a regular viewer, whenever I do tune in, it’s not time wasted.

 

Do you have a favorite TV talk show that you really enjoy because it keeps you informed about your favorite celebrities or because the host invites guests who have an opinion about “large life matters” ~ current events and problems facing the world today ~ and who can express themselves clearly with facts to back up their ideas and thoughts?

 

 

 

Learning How To Pace Yourself Watching Television Programs Online
Tricks to Watching Television Series online_Some Shows You Shouldn't Watch_A Vital Hint When You Watch T.V. Online

You are sitting in front of your television set.  The show you are watching ends with a cliff hanger.  You don’t know what happens next.  And you either have to wait until next week or next season.   Now that’s kind of a bummer.

It is like being hungry, getting your food, and it falling on the floor.

When you watch television serials on line you can avoid this ‘having to wait until next week/season’ to see what happens, IF you pace yourself.

If you don’t, you are in the same position you would be watching the show on television.  You have to wait.

When a show ran five seasons and ended, fine, you can sit in front of your computer and watch marathons.  For when you hit the last episode, it IS the last episode.   But when you are watching  a show which is still producing new episodes you must stay two seasons behind so as to avoid that ‘cliff hanger’ and that waiting.

For example, I began to watch Blue Bloods less than a year ago.  There are Seven seasons and twenty two episodes in each.   That is one hundred and fifty four episodes.

If one is foolish, as I was, one will do a marathon. Even watching only one episode a day, in six months I’ve finished the series, and am waiting for the next episode.  Just like everyone else.

Had I been wiser, I would have watched an episode every few days so would still be in season six, and when seven turns into eight, would just be completing six and starting seven when the show was three quarters through eight, so that I would not have to wait until next week to see what happens.

When a series is new, and there are only two seasons (so far) one should be careful not to complete them too quickly.  Or else they join the cadre of shows one has to wait for.
