article: Porgy and Bess (Summertime with Miles Davis Porgy and Bess 1958)


Porgy and Bess

The folk opera Porgy and Bess is American composer George Gershwin’s most ambitious work. Controversial since its release in 1935 for its depiction of African Americans, it tells the story of Porgy, a crippled black man living in the slums of Charleston, South Carolina, and his attempts to rescue Bess from Crown, her pimp, and Sportin’ Life, a drug dealer. Which song from the show is one of the most popular cover songs ever, with an estimated 30,000 different versions recorded? More… Discuss

PARIS – François Hollande a prévenu vendredi que “la France n’en a pas terminé avec les menaces dont elle est la cible”, lors d’une allocution télévisée après le dénouement des deux prises d’otages.

La France, même si elle consciente d’avoir fait face, même si elle sait qu’elle peut disposer, avec les forces de sécurité, d’hommes et de femmes capables de courage et de bravoure, n’en a pas terminé avec les menaces dont elle est la cible. Je veux vous appeler à la vigilance, à l’unité et à la mobilisation”, a déclaré le président de la République.

today’s holiday: Newport Harbor Christmas Boat Parade (2014)


Newport Harbor Christmas Boat Parade (2014)

The Newport Harbor Christmas Boat Parade is a nightly parade of boats at Newport Beach, California. More than 150 boats of all kinds, wildly decorated with lights depicting Santa Claus, snowmen, and other symbols of winter, join the parade. Some boats carry huge inflated figures, and many play music. The floating parades started in 1908 as a Fourth of July spectacular. In 1946, the city put a tree and carolers on a barge and towed it around the harbor, and that began the current December parades. Today, about a million spectators watch them during the festival.

Narcolepsy


Narcolepsy

Narcolepsy is a disorder characterized by sudden, uncontrollable, and often brief attacks of sleep, sometimes accompanied by paralysis and hallucinations. Its cause is unknown, it has no cure, but it is fairly common—the US alone is home to some 200,000 narcoleptics. People with narcolepsy may abruptly fall asleep at any time, including while talking or even walking. The attacks can range from embarrassing and inconvenient to severely disruptive of daily life. How is narcolepsy diagnosed? More… Discuss

The glory days are over for this former celebrity home (Screenshot via YouTube)

A video provides a tour through the abandoned Minnelli mansion in Beverly Hills, once occupied by Liza Minnelli‘s father, Vincent Minnelli.

The 5,800-square-foot house sits on Crescent Drive in Beverly Hills. It was built in 1925 and redesigned by John Elgin Woolf, a well-known Hollywood architect, Curbed LA reports. As the story goes, director Vincent Minnelli moved into the home after his divorce from Judy Garland, who he met directing 1944’s Meet Me In St. Louis. Minnelli and Garland didn’t have a particularly long marriage: they married in 1945 and divorced only six years later in 1951. Their only child, Liza, was born in 1946.

Minnelli died in July of 1986 when he was 83 after struggling with emphysema and pneumonia.

Leonard Cohen – In My Secret Life lyrics plus: make music part of your life series (“…Looked through the paper. Makes you want to cry. Nobody cares if the people Live or die…”)


“In My Secret Life”

I saw you this morning.
You were moving so fast.
Can’t seem to loosen my grip
On the past.
And I miss you so much.
There’s no one in sight.
And we’re still making love
In My Secret Life.

I smile when I’m angry.
I cheat and I lie.
I do what I have to do
To get by.
But I know what is wrong,
And I know what is right.
And I’d die for the truth
In My Secret Life.

Hold on, hold on, my brother.
My sister, hold on tight.
I finally got my orders.
I’ll be marching through the morning,
Marching through the night,
Moving cross the borders
Of My Secret Life.

Looked through the paper.
Makes you want to cry.
Nobody cares if the people
Live or die.
And the dealer wants you thinking
That it’s either black or white.
Thank G-d it’s not that simple
In My Secret Life.

I bite my lip.
I buy what I’m told:
From the latest hit,
To the wisdom of old.
But I’m always alone.
And my heart is like ice.
And it’s crowded and cold
In My Secret Life.

today’s holiday: White Sunday


White Sunday

Children are honored on this special day celebrated in Christian churches of both American Samoa and the country of Samoa. Each child dresses in white and wears a crown of white frangipani blossoms. They line up and walk to church, carrying banners and singing hymns, while their parents wait for them inside. The children present short dramatizations of Bible stories, such as the good Samaritan, Noah’s ark, and the prodigal son. After the performance is over, the children return to their homes, and their parents serve them a feast that includes roast pig, bananas, taro, coconuts, and cakes. More… Discuss

Writers and readers go mobile and social at Wattpad

Allen Lau considers himself living proof that love of good writing is alive and well in the age of streaming video and terse text messages.

He offers as further evidence the 32 million people who each month visit online literature social network Wattpad, which he and Ivan Yuen launched eight years ago as an online venue for writers and readers to connect.

“Wattpad is the world’s largest community for reading and writing,” Lau told AFP during a recent visit to San Francisco to meet with investors in the Toronto-based startup.

“We’ve created a mobile and social storytelling experience.”

Of the more than nine billion minutes spent monthly reading at Wattpad, about 85 percent is done using smartphones or tablet computers, according to Lau.

More than a million Wattpad users are writers, who typically upload a chapter at a time while readers tune in the way they might watch episodes of a television series.

“We make story telling very different and unique,” Lau said.

- Readers shape stories -

Readers share feelings, thoughts and criticisms with one another and authors at the social network, sometimes shaping fates of characters or directions of stories.

“Writing and reading have traditionally been very solitary experiences,” Lau said.

“In this case, writers get constant feedback from readers in real time; and from the reader perspective it is almost like watching a TV show with 10 million people all at once.”

Readers are free to wait until books are complete and then binge on chapter after chapter, but that is rarely the case at Wattpad. The most common question fired off at the service was said to be “When will the next chapter be released?”

After Wattpad noticed writers providing links to music videos to listen to as background for reading, the social network added a way to embed YouTube clips.

“It has been so widely used, if you go to YouTube and search ‘Wattpad’ you will find millions of videos,” Lau said.

“The writing is the main actor, but we have supporting characters: video and sound.”

Wattpad sees a quarter of a million chapters uploaded daily, with about 24 hours worth of reading arriving at the service each minute.

Less than half the visits to Wattpad come from the United States, and the service is growing strong in an array of countries including Turkey, Italy, Britain, and Spain.

“Not everyone has an e-book store, a library, or a regular book store, but everyone will be on the Internet and everyone will have a smartphone,” Lau reasoned.

“I am the walking proof that it is rubbish people aren’t reading as much; the Internet is helping people to read and write more.”

- Writers find fame -

The Wattpad mobile application is free, as is access to work uploaded by writers. More than half the stories on Wattpad were written on mobile devices.

Wattpad writers don’t get paid, but exposure at the social network provides opportunities for them to make money.
