“We were obsessed with capturing and killing human targets on lists and ignoring goals and missions. I believed if the public, particularly the American public, could see this it could spark a debate on the military and our foreign policy in general [that] might cause society to reconsider the need to engage in counter-terrorism while ignoring the human situation of the people we engaged with every day.”

Regina Spektor – Samson (Official Video) A replay: Because I felt like it (one of the best piece of music recently composed)


“Samson”
(By Regina Spektor)

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth
I have to go, I have to go
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
He ate a slice of wonder bread and went right back to bed
And history books forgot about us and the bible didn’t mention us
And the bible didn’t mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the stars came fallin’ on our heads
But they’re just old light, they’re just old light
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson came to my bed
Told me that my hair was red
Told me I was beautiful and came into my bed
Oh I cut his hair myself one night
A pair of dull scissors in the yellow light
And he told me that I’d done alright
And kissed me ’til the mornin’ light, the mornin’ light
And he kissed me ’til the mornin’ light

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
Ate a slice of wonderbread and went right back to bed
Oh, we couldn’t bring the columns down
Yeah we couldn’t destroy a single one
And history books forgot about us
And the bible didn’t mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first

Laughing with God
(By Regina Spektor)

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one’s laughing at God
When they’re starving or freezing or so very poor

No one laughs at God
When the doctor calls after some routine tests
No one’s laughing at God
When it’s gotten real late
And their kid’s not back from the party yet

No one laughs at God
When their airplane start to uncontrollably shake
No one’s laughing at God
When they see the one they love, hand in hand with someone else
And they hope that they’re mistaken

No one laughs at God
When the cops knock on their door
And they say we got some bad news, sir
No one’s laughing at God
When there’s a famine or fire or flood

*Chorus*
But God can be funny
At a cocktail party when listening to a good God-themed joke, or
Or when the crazies say He hates us
And they get so red in the head you think they’re ‘bout to choke
God can be funny,
When told he’ll give you money if you just pray the right way
And when presented like a genie who does magic like Houdini
Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus
God can be so hilarious
Ha ha
Ha ha

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one’s laughing at God
When they’ve lost all they’ve got
And they don’t know what for

No one laughs at God on the day they realize
That the last sight they’ll ever see is a pair of hateful eyes
No one’s laughing at God when they’re saying their goodbyes
But God can be funny
At a cocktail party when listening to a good God-themed joke, or
Or when the crazies say He hates us
And they get so red in the head you think they’re ‘bout to choke
God can be funny,
When told he’ll give you money if you just pray the right way
And when presented like a genie who does magic like Houdini
Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus
God can be so hilarious

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one laughing at God in hospital
No one’s laughing at God in a war
No one’s laughing at God when they’re starving or freezing or so very
poor

No one’s laughing at God
No one’s laughing at God
No one’s laughing at God
We’re all laughing with God

The Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minorK. 466, was written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1785. The first performance took place at the Mehlgrube Casino in Vienna on February 11, 1785, with the composer as the soloist.

A few days after the first performance, the composer’s father, Leopold, visiting in Vienna, wrote to his daughter Nannerl about her brother’s recent success: “[I heard] an excellent new piano concerto by Wolfgang, on which the copyist was still at work when we got there, and your brother didn’t even have time to play through the rondo because he had to oversee the copying operation.”[1]

It is written in the key of D minor. Other works by the composer in that key include the Fantasia K. 397 for piano, Requiem, a Kyrie, the aria “Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen” from the opera The Magic Flute and parts of the dark opera Don Giovanni. It is the first of two piano concertos written in a minor key (No. 24 in C minorbeing the other).

The young Ludwig van Beethoven admired this concerto and kept it in his repertoire.[1] Famed conductor Daniel Barenboim contends that this concerto was Joseph Stalin‘s favorite piece of music.[2] Famous composers who wrote cadenzas for this popular concerto include Beethoven (WoO 58), Charles-Valentin AlkanJohannes Brahms (WoO 16), Johann Nepomuk HummelFeruccio Busoni and Clara Schumann.

The concerto is scored for solo pianoflute, two oboes, two bassoons, two horns, two trumpetstimpani and strings. As is typical with concertos, it is in three movements:

  1. Allegro
  2. Romanze
  3. Allegro assai

The first movement starts off the concerto in the dark tonic key of D minor with the strings restlessly but quietly building up to a full forte. The theme is quickly taken up by the piano soloist and developed throughout the long movement. A slightly brighter mood exists in the second theme, but it never becomes jubilant. The timpani further heightens the tension in the coda before the cadenza. The movement ends on a quiet note.

The ‘Romanze’ second movement is a five-part rondo (ABACA)[3] with a coda.                                                               (Read More Here)

Recording Session at Abbey Roads Rachmaninoff Concerto #2 Mov.2 Valentina Lisitsa




The GOLDEN RULE

The start of the “endgame”.  Now will citizens wake up?  Will it be too late anyway?  How come there is money for warmongering?  You voted him in! How could you be so inept? Plenty of questions, few answers. At least it has been accomplished without blood in the streets, as happens overseas. Maybe that is still to come, which would be the reason for, (or  because of),  arming civil authorities, perhaps!

Cannot remember who said “the people get the government they deserve”, but it seems to be apt.  The most powerful nation in the modern world – reduced to a spent civilization. All because of greed  for money and power, and resources of course, but not for the people’s use.

The end of taxpayer funds. From now on just more printed paper or computer records, until the US dollar is hyper-inflated until worthless.  I sincerely hope I am wrong.

TOday’s Birthday: MARCUS VALERIUS MARTIALIS, AKA MARTIAL (C. 38 CE)


Marcus Valerius Martialis, AKA Martial (c. 38 CE)

Born in what is now Spain, Martial went as a young man to Rome, where he associated with prominent figures and won fame for his wit and poetry. He is renowned for his 12 books of epigrams—short, pithy sayings, often with a satiric or paradoxical twist. Pointed and often obscene, the poems provide a picture of Roman society during the early empire that is remarkable for its accurate portrayal of human foibles. In one verse, he accuses a man of burning down his own house for what reason? More… Discuss

This Day in the Yesteryear: PEACE CORPS ESTABLISHED (1961)


Peace Corps Established (1961)

In his inaugural address, US President John F. Kennedy famously tasked Americans to “ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” Months later, he gave them the opportunity. Kennedy created the Peace Corps to promote diplomacy and counter foreign stereotypes of Americans by sending skilled volunteers to serve abroad, and since 1961, more than 200,000 people have served in nearly 140 countries.

STRETCHY BATTERY A PROMISING POWER SOURCE


Stretchy Battery a Promising Power Source

In recent years, engineers have made great strides in the fields offlexible and stretchable electronics. However, their progress has been somewhat hampered by a lack of similarly flexible battery technology—that is, until now. Researchers have successfully demonstrated a flat, stretchable battery that maintains its power and performance even when extended to three times its original size. The battery can also be charged wirelessly, meaning it could someday be used to power implantable medical devices, among other things. More… Discuss

ABOLISHED MONARCHIES


Abolished Monarchies

In 2008, the last king of Nepal left the royal palace in Kathmandu, having been given 15 days to vacate by the Nepalese legislature. The year before, the last lifetime ruler of Samoa died, and rather than replace him, the country became a republic. Scores of countries have shed their monarchies in the past century, intentionally or not. Some have simply ceased to exist along with their rulers.
