Today’s Holiday: Burning the Clavie

Today’s Holiday:
Burning the Clavie

The Burning of the Clavie takes place in Burghead, a fishing village in the region of Moray, Scotland, on January 11. Local residents make the clavie by sawing a tar barrel in two, breaking the larger half into pieces and stuffing it inside the smaller half with tinder and tar. At dusk, the Clavie King sets the clavie on fire and leads a procession through town to a high headland along the coast, where the flames ignite a huge bonfire. At the end of the festivities, townsfolk gather pieces of the clavie to light a New Year fire, which is believed to keep witches and evil spirits away for a year.

Article of the Day:
Frisbee Dog

Disc dog, or Frisbee dog, is a sport that showcases speedy, high-flying dogs catching discs thrown by their human teammates. It got its start in the early 1970s, but its popularity was boosted in 1974, when 19-year-old college student Alex Stein ran onto the field during a nationally broadcast baseball game and began throwing discs to his dog, Ashley Whippet. The game was stopped, and the pair proceeded to entertain the crowd for how long before Stein was escorted off the field and arrested?

Watch “Sting – Shape of My Heart (Leon)” on YouTube

  1. 2 of 5
    He deals the cards as a meditation
    And those he plays never suspect
    He doesn’t play for the money he wins
    He don’t play for respect

    He deals the cards to find the answer
    The sacred geometry of chance
    The hidden law of a probable outcome
    The numbers lead a dance

    I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
    I know that the clubs are weapons of war
    I know that diamonds mean money for this art
    But that’s not the shape of my heart

    He may play the jack of diamonds
    He may lay the queen of spades
    He may conceal a king in his hand
    While the memory of it fades

    I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
    I know that the clubs are weapons of war
    I know that diamonds mean money for this art
    But that’s not the shape of my heart
    That’s not the shape
    The shape of my heart

    If I told her that I loved you
    You’d maybe think there’s something wrong
    I’m not a man of too many faces
    The mask I wear is one

    But those who speak know nothing
    And find out to their cost
    Like those who curse their luck in too many places
    And those who fear are lost

    I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
    I know that the clubs are weapons of war
    I know that diamonds mean money for this art
    But that’s not the shape of my heart
    That’s not the shape of my heart
    That’s not the shape
    The shape of my heart

Watch “Nouela – The Sound of Silence (Amazing cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s song)” on YouTube

Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence
And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence
“Fools, ” said I, “You do not know
Silence, like a cancer, grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you”
But my words, like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells, of silence
And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, “The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls”
And whispered in the sounds of silence
Give it nice and loud for Mister Myles Kennedy

Watch “Bob Dylan The Times They Are A Changin’ 1964” on YouTube

Come gather ’round people Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon You’ll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to youIs worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’
Or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’.
Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside
And it is ragin’.
It’ll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’.
Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don’t criticize
What you can’t understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin’.
Please get out of the new one
If you can’t lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin’.
