She's got a good strong voice. Somehow she bores me, and not sure why. Nice voice, though.

I do like listening to this one ...

Hi everyone! And there's new people too, yayyyyy!

I loved the cartoon for Tetra, that was very sweet!

Sao, wandering bookshops in London *sigh* that sounds so very lovely.

Awesome pic, Mesa! What a great thing to witness! What will you do at the park? I hope you take a couple pix of the nature for us!

bim, once I bought a pink tinsel tabletop Christmas tree and once I bought a little tree made out of fresh rosemary from whole foods... That way I could celebrate without having it look like our Christmas trees growing up. Bc I have similar issues like you spoke of..

Freddie Mercury.... Mmmm mmm mmm. A legend. The live at Wembley Under Pressure vid where he takes the crowd through his vocal warm up exercises... It's mesmerizing. I really want to go full drag sometime and dress up in his outfit... White matador pants with the red stripes and the yellow jacket. I want a moustache for it, too.

Mr. Potamus loves this song ...



He got me hooked on it one time. Couldn't get it outta my head

That's Kimbra singing with Gotye.

I thought they were brilliant together.

Lunar, are you a roaring Potamus?

I think that hippo is smiling as it roars - happy & loud, shouting out to the world.

Thanks for that Alvin Lee, lunar.

I was listening to some of his early stuff yesterday, but too drug/alcohol infused for me to feel good posting it here. He could make that guitar cry, though. That's Hendrix isn't it?

He doesn't actually look too "well" in that video. :-/

Lunar, I like that squeal he gives right before a guitar riff.

Putting up the tree later. This will be the second attempt. The first I chucked the idea. I am having a hard to getting there. Even bought the smelly pines cones to get me in the mood.
Hi! That all sounds very very good, my ears perked up at the pork roast! I won't be mad if you post a pic!!

And I got a chuckle out of the wording 'even bought the smelly pine cones to get me in the mood.' That is so funny! I can picture someone staring at a Christmas tree laying on the floor, and then burying their face in an armful of pine cones to become infused with the holiday spirit for decorating strength!

I hope they work their smelly magic!

From this ...



To this ...



Despite the flack, gotta admit this band is pretty stellar and versatile. Will never forget Achtung Baby and Zooropa releases during high school years.

I used this song in a parody of Hamlet I wrote and performed my senior year Was a minor celebrity for a few days, lol.

HAHAHA well now that you paint the picture it does sound funny.

I think the chair and tea will win out for a third day. Sunday mornings are a better time to do that sorta thing. Not a dreary saturday. Plus I did all my other chores today so there is nothing left for tomorrow.

Thanks for the chuckle!!
