Survivors of the Holiday


Not what I was out looking for, really, but there they were all around me:
the ones that got away, from the 2019 Thanksgiving Massacree!

(Tip of the hat to Alice and Arlo)

And a 13 second 4K clip of this guy and some fellow "G-plus refugees" (Gobble gobble gobble +)

Talking about some great bands that sort of got lost in the mix of history. With some great songs, too.
Here's a great example. Not only the song I was looking for, but an album section, so pure and such a great sample. Enjoy.

MOODY BLUES: "In The Beginning"- "Lovely To See You"- "Dear Diary"- w/Lyrics


In the Beginning

I think, I think I am, therefore I am, I think.
[Establishment:] Of course you are my bright little star,
I've miles
And miles
Of files
Pretty files of your forefather's fruit
And now to suit our
Great computer,
You're magnetic ink.

[Inner Man:] I'm more than that, I know I am, at least, I think I must be.


It riles them to believe that you perceive the web they weave.
And keep on thinking free...

Lovely to See You
Lovely to see you again my friend
Walk along with me to the next bend.....

...

Dear Diary,

It's over, will tomorrow be the same?
I know that they're really not to blame
If they weren't so blind then surely they'd see
There's a much better way for them to be
Inside me, yours truly, dear Diary

Money for nothing..... "I want my MTV!"

Money for Nothing - Dire Straits


LYRICS
Now look at them yo-yo's, that's the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Money for nothin' and your chicks for free
Now that ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Lemme tell ya, them guys ain't dumb
Maybe get a blister on your little finger
Maybe get a blister on your thumb
We got to install microwave ovens, custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators, we gotta move these color TV's
See the little faggot with the earring and the make up
Yeah buddy that's his own hair
That little faggot got his own jet airplane
That little faggot he's a millionaire
We got to install microwave ovens, custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators, we gotta move these color TV's
We got to install microwave ovens, custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators, we gotta move these color TV's
I shoulda learned to play the guitar
I shoulda learned to play them drums
Look at that mama she got it stickin' in the camera man
We could have some-
And he's up there, what's that?
Hawaiian noises?
Bangin' on the bongos like a chimpanzee
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Get your money for nothin', get your chicks for free
We got to install microwave ovens, custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators, we gotta move these color TV's
Listen here
Now that ain't workin' that's the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV
That ain't workin', that's the way you do it
Money for nothin' and chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' get your chicks for free
Money for nothin' and the chicks for free
Money for nothin' and the chicks for free
Look at that, look at that
Money for nothin' chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
Money for nothin' chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
Money for nothin' chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
Money for nothin' chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
Easy, easy money for nothin' (I want my, I want my MTV)
Easy, easy chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
Easy, easy money for nothin' (I want my, I want my MTV)
Chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
That ain't workin'

Dazed and Confused - Jimmy Page and his "Dragon" Guitar

Winner (guessed whose this was): @tomgrz :))

This is the Telecaster (1959; hand-painted by Jimmy Page, 1967)
Catalog Notes: Ash body, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, two single-coil pickups.

"Jimmy Page received this guitar from Jeff Beck and used it for his 1967 work with the Yardbirds, playing it with a violin bow on experimental live versions of 'Dazed and Confused'. After the Yardbirds disbanded, he used it to record all of Led Zeppelin (1968)"

Here's a classic concert clip where you can see & hear it in use:

Beatles: Ticket to Ride

That's John Lennon's Rickenbacker Model # 325, used throughout The Beatles' 1964 and on A Hard Day's Night.
You can hear its sound right at the beginning of this iconic song:

Timely, i-Ching pull from a rescued "tape"..... and a great album probably little known. Sting, ripe and pithy. Lyrics below.

We Work The Black Seam | Sting

LYRICS

This place has changed for good
Your economic theory said it would
It's hard for us to understand
We can't give up our jobs the way we should

Our blood has stained the coal
We tunneled deep inside the nation's soul
We matter more than pounds and pence
Your economic theory makes no sense

One day in a nuclear age
They may understand our rage
They build machines that they can't control
And bury the waste in a great big hole
Power was to become cheap and clean
Grimy faces were never seen
But deadly for twelve thousand years is carbon fourteen
We work the black seam together

The seam lies underground
Three million years of pressure packed it down
We walk through ancient forest lands
And light a thousand cities with our hands

Your dark satanic mills
Have made redundant all our mining skills
You can't exchange a six inch band
For all the poisoned streams in Cumberland

One day in a nuclear age
They may understand our rage
They build machines that they can't control
And bury the waste in a great big hole
Power was to become cheap and clean
Grimy faces were never seen
But deadly for twelve thousand years is carbon fourteen
We work the black seam together

Our conscious lives run deep
You cling onto your mountain while we sleep
This way of life is part of me
The is no price so only let me be

And should the children weep
The turning world will sing their souls to sleep
When you have sunk without a trace
The universe will suck me into place

One day in a nuclear age
They may understand our rage
They build machines that they can't control
And bury the waste in a great big hole
Power was to become cheap and clean
Grimy faces were never seen
But deadly for twelve thousand years is carbon fourteen
We work the black seam together

Sigh.. The weekend is over for their "civilized" cousins who are and back to work and "civilized life".
This image is actually from long ago, scanned anew from Kodachrome slide / diapositive / ISO 200 KPL "film".

Wishing for a better new week ahead than the last one (for many of us) - and into a better future! Happy #monkeymonday

2 Fly-by Aircraft

Hawai'ian Islands


Both of the planes above are in the Hawai'ian Islands, among many military aircraft of all types, plus the carriers (think: Pearl Harbor)

So image # 1 (or two) is a huge Lockheed C-5 Galaxy transport plane (the biggest still, maybe), lumbering over our tiny "puddle jumper" Cessna over the pacific, our tiny plane crossing the channel to Moloka'i.

Image # 2 (or 1 - YMMV) is a ?? . Not the ideal shot (un-cropped here) but it was the view I had standing by a waterfall (in Hilo) and being shaken by the sound of this. I don't know what it is, but... it definitely has propellers!

~

More images from many of the Hawai'ian islands, from the Moloka'i peninsula to the Volcanos of Kilauea and Mt. Haleakala, plus my own music video of Moloka'i featuring locally made music, flowers, and sunsets - no more fly-bys, @ www.fenichel.com/hawaii2.shtml







Haleakala Silversword, endemic to the very top of Mt. Haleakala Volcano, at 10,023 feet (3,055 meters) above sea level.

Some say "a picture is worth 1000 words", "every picture tells a story", etc. Many more pictures @ fenichel.com Aloha!

Bethesda Fountain # 2 (Central Park)


One more look - from a longer/wider perspective - at Bethesda Fountain in its entirety, with people sitting, selfie-ing, etc. As you can see, as of mid-October, the trees are just getting tinged with yellow, later each year in fully changing colors (peaking) so it seems.

This is the view, atop Bethesda Terrace, or on the fountain level, walking down the stairs which are atop a very elegant arcade, where performers are often found (and wedding photographers). The stairs themselves are fascinating, with carvings depicting the "early birds" of the park on the eastern (sunrise) side of the stairs, while the western side features daytime and evening creatures.

Off to the right the Boathouse (restaurant) and rowboat rentals. Behind the trees, to the left here, is the larger expanse of pond and Bow Bridge. Nearby also, Imagine (the mosaic), the Bandshell, and Strawberry Fields.

You can see more images of autumn (in full fury) and Bow Bridge at

Central Park Boathouse - Revisited October 2019


This is more of a little gazebo (the big "clubhouse" is where one rents the rowboats). I took a photo of a couple and their rowboat, stopped at this exact spot, many years ago. That became a book cover! I re-visited this favorite spot a few years ago in the height of autumn and you what that looks like here .. with a link to the original photo as well, and to many more photos of Central Park.

"Donut Taste Good"

Well, it's a different type of donut than Dunkin or Tastee Creme! More like whole wheat, simple, no frostings or anything. But warm.
At 14,110 feet elevation (4300m) it is a challenge to leaven dough!

Sadly, my "Colorado" collection on G+ was exterminated by #evilgoogle. With Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, Manitou, etc.

I have yet to replicate that collection "here" or on my own site, but a few samples are on flickr.

And here is a chunk of my Google posts, still available (to me at least, and probably anyone with access to Photos, or anyone at all).

A last "summer day" in Central Park. (Unofficial)

Tricolor Heron


Darker than a Great Blue, and a little smaller, but also quite similar in appearance. The tricolor has patches of rust and white in addition to the blue. Hard to see here in profile, except the "rusty" neck and a bit of the unique white stripe down the neck, like a necktie.

Something for Caturday


Making amends for never having posted to any #caturday tags or collections - since the invention of things like social media.

So here's a "two-fur".

One is an image of two cats in Galicia, near Pontedeume.
The second is "Classic Broadway" (I took a series for a "record cover"), which is on a web page I made in the mid 00's.

Happy Caturday! Hope it's approximately purr-fect.

Stick, 2019

Simone Leigh


From the Biennial Exhibit at the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York)

"A trained ceramist who has long engaged with radical Black feminist thought, Leigh has fashioned a multivalent response to outmoded notions of the female body as a vessel. Using sensuously textured materials—here, ceramic and bronze—she examines ways in which objects embody and communicate specific cultural traditions and histories through both material and form."

Blowin' Smoke (in B Flat)


And, in color.

This is the "companion shot" of an image I took and posted about a week ago - in monochrome. That one is my own pick, compositionally, as there is more of the store window, with guitars, and sign ("Chelsea Guitars").

Well, I printed that one and this one and asked people (from friends to total strangers) which they preferred and why. Most picked the b&w but several people were intrigued by this one. Why? The smoke, and/or the mannequin detail. OK, "different strokes..."

And color too. Posted the monochrome to a b&w event (film emulation: Acros-r, Fuji-X)
But the color version (Provia) pops. Either way, caution, respect and distance are advised.

@Shantha
I sure don't know everything! I'm "enlightened" enough to know what I know and what I don't, and that others are similar in the option to explore or simply accept.
My point was precisely that arrogance of the "know it all" is really ignorance.

Yes indeed, free spirits are everywhere, remaining free, finding others to harmonize with, and simply existing... all kinds.

I will happily vote for your suggestion of a "Dept. of Skill Development". From the top down! ASAP please, from the "leaders" to the rulers, to the people living life.

The "new here" posts are public, and with public posts (at least on Pluspora) if you even "like" any comment, and if your settings (which you can adjust) allow for notifications of activity on posts you've made or commented on/liked, then you see all responses. I have seen some complaints about people commandeering public posts by extended personal back & forths, so that's what I'm trying to be sensitive to (Obi Wan Kenobee!) joking, as you portray me as teacher (honor, really)

OK, well, as a fellow deep-into G+ world survivor, one last thing "here" -
You may have seen discussions in the end-days of G+, about maybe MeWe and about various Federation "instances"/pods, things like Mastadon, Friendica, Pluspora, and diaspora* to name the main ones getting lots of recommendations.
So, I'm happy you've succeeded in finding another buddy, and hope you manage to connect to any meaningful peeps from the old world. One suggestion, when you post - especially if you are really looking for those you had ongoing sharing with: use the hashtag #gplusrefugee or #gplusexpat or #googleplusrefugee The first has the most recognition, but all these will definitely get your post seen in the streams of others who are searching or self-identifying with these hashtags. And you'll see the posts of these people. Add more hashtags for whatever it is you regularly shared, be it #recipes or #60sMusic, fashion, travel, #poetry, or whatever... and you increase the chances of being seen by your "ex"es from G+.

Another big issue for some is "aspects" vs "public", which is what G+ was actually modeled on, and is useful if you want to avoid tons of stuff in your daily feed. Also (suggestion), if you have in your profile something hugely broad like #music or #books you will be so buried in ongoing public posts you'll never find your friends' posts! So limit the noise by being targeted in what you put in your posts and profile tags. it's tough to get used to for many comfortable-with-G+ users, but you do have a lot of control - in terms of whether you post publicly (which, like G+, truly is public, and will get your posts listed in Google, so friends/public can find your public posts), or if you post to some or all "aspects" (circles). It's a balancing act, one I still deal with, here and elsewhere, as no one thing does what G+ did so easily and so well. Before it went total evil (or during it). Anyhow... Peace.

Led Zeppelin Rain Song with Lyrics


From the intro - en francais:
Jai créer Led Zeppelin non un groupe de musique mais une expérience ésotérique pour apaiser lâme, en effet dans ce vidéo vous sentirez un bien être intérieur surtout dans les moments difficile, une libération de la peine.

Translation (Jimmy Page's words): "I created Led Zeppelin not as a music band but as an esoteric experience to calm the soul." 'Indeed in this video you will feel a good inner being especially in difficult moments, a release of the pain. (Intro)

Yin Yu Tang - The Huang Home - Pt. 3


“Peabody, set the wayback machine back 200 years, to China’s southeastern Huizhou region, to the Huang home.”

Fast forward to now… The entire home complex is on display, bedrooms, courtyard and kitchen -
imported intact from China (like so much!) , now at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts.

Complicated Life


Complicated Life (Kinks) - LYRICS

Well I woke this morning with a pain in my neck,
A pain in my heart and a pain in my chest,
I went to the good doctor and the good doctor said,
You gotta slow down your life or you're gonna be dead,
Cut out the struggle and strife,
It only complicates your life.
Well I cut down women I cut out booze,
I stopped ironing my shirts, cleaning my shoes,
I stopped going to work, reading the news,
I'm sitting twiddling my thumbs 'cause I got nothing to do,
Minimal exercise,
To help un-complicate my life,
Gotta stand and face it life is so complicated,
La di dah di dahdah, la di dah di dah dah,
Got to get away from the complicated life son,
Life is overrated, life is complicated,
Must alleviate this, complicated life.
Like old Mother Hubbard
I got nothin' in the cupboard,
Got no dinner and I got no supper,
Holes in my shoes I got holes in my socks,
I can't go to work 'cause I can't get a job,
The bills are rising sky high,
It's such a complicated life,
Gotta stand and face it,
Life is so complicated.

Witches and Pilgrims and Graves, Oh My

From Salem, Mass., home of the (real) witch trials.
Here are a few images from "the Burial Point" for early colonial settlers (including from the Mayflower)....
Next to that is a burial grounds for the many convicted "witches" killed there in that dark historical place.

People say: Avoid Salem in October! Properly so, as it becomes a tourism mob scene around Halloween. Lucky to visit on a sunny day in late summer before the tourist tornado hits. So here is a taste without big crowds, far ahead of All Saints, Dia de los Muertos.

Pictured here: Large blue sign explaining the history of the Salem Witch Trials, and the end result, here; Image of the final protests and sworn innocence of accused "witches"; Gravestone of "Witch"; Gravestone of American forefather (Mayflower Pilgrim): Signs and sights of the "Burial Point". Ghosts and goblins may follow, as Halloween / Dia De Los Muertos approach, along with nightfall.
