OMG, OMG... Look what else was done in tribute, recently too. A friend just shared... Perfect timing for BB King's 94th Birthday.

This is not BB Blues so much as some celestial brew & interpretation by my favorite child singer and family of musicians. "Different"

Isaac et Nora - The Thrill Is Gone

I think the lyrics are in order, given that this is such a totally different treatment than the blues-guitar-centric BB King version:

The thrill is gone
The thrill is gone away
The thrill is gone baby
The thrill is gone away
You know you done me wrong baby
And you'll be sorry someday
The thrill is gone
It's gone away from me
The thrill is gone baby
The thrill is gone away from me
Although, I'll still live on
But so lonely I'll be
The thrill is gone
It's gone away for good
The thrill is gone baby
It's gone away for good
Someday I know I'll be open armed baby
Just like I know a good man should
You know I'm free, free now baby
I'm free from your spell
Oh I'm free, free, free now
I'm free from your spell
And now that it's all over
All I can do is wish you well

Rest in Peace, Ric Ocasek (of the Cars)

From the local news today, in New York, where he died, age 75.
The story plus a clip of his recent life, as "a different kind of artist".

Put another record on!

Speaking of ...

Here's the "One More Time" Logo'd Wurlitzer in the cool lower Lounge at the Hotel Nacional.
(Casino, rock, and celebrity souvenirs too.) The 1950's and before, all exactly as they were.

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.
Don't Panic... It has passed years ago (though some may try to renew it!) Just another ...

Nice... #music, #rap, and #voices against the medieval dictator of #Turkiye #Turkey

Millions find their voice as Turkish rappers rise against oppression

Rap stars unite to speak out. I wish them well (seriously!), both in the effort to mobilize people, and to stay alive and out of jail, unlike a large proportion of journalists and opposition voices. I remember Turkey 1980's, happily joining the modern world, and honoring the spirit and vision of Atatürk as Turkey participated in modern ideas and social/cultural influences from around the free world.
Un plus / One more - music, wonderful live performance from Led Zep with beautiful video and LYRICS - in the video.

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)

Chelsea Guitars

At the Hotel Chelsea

I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
You were famous, your heart was a legend
You told me again you preferred handsome men
But for me you would make an exception
And clenching your fist for the ones like us
Who are oppressed by the figures of beauty
You fixed yourself, you said, "Well never mind,
We are ugly but we have the music"

From a conversation about great female vocalists.
One of my favorite albums is from 1973, Stevie Nicks here. (Hopefully the link will lead to the last 3 songs).

Buckingham Nicks

Beautiful songs, beautiful sound, in its day, and now. Best on big speakers or w/headphones. Sweet.

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.

Reminded that "we are all made of stars", I wish Good night/weekend/morning! Remember:

Everybody's A Star (Star Maker)

The Kinks, from their ground-breaking rock/life "Soap Opera" album/show - One of the first (great) 'rock operas' too.

I am a creator
Inventor and innovator
I observe the people
The ordinary people
No matter what your occupation is
Everybody's in showbiz
'Cos I'm a Star (gonna make you a star)
And I can make you a Star (gonna make you a star)
I believe that everybody's a celebrity
And we've all got personality
And individuality
We all read lines
And we all act a part
We all need a script
And an audience to play to
No matter what you do
Or who you are
Everybody's a star

I'm the magic maker
I'm the image maker
I'm the interior decorator

I can take any man
I see standing in the road
And put rouge on his cheeks
And put some powder on his nose
I'll teach him how to act
I'll remould and reshape him
I'll put him in a stage suit
And I'll teach him how to pose
I can turn the most ordinary man in the world into a star
I'm a starmaker (gonna make you a star)
Yes, I'm gonna make you a star (gonna make you a star)
No matter how dull or simple you are
Everybody's a star

Bevy of Birds on Broadway

One is an American Bittern (public art work), quite literally "On Broadway" - on New York's Upper West Side, near Zabar's.

The real (living) bird here is much smaller than the heron-sized bittern, and seems to be a native New Yorker bird doing its thing:
Pizza pizza!

I've been curious about this little guy; I've seen many now that I try to be more aware of birds. It's not quite a wren or sparrow.
As it turns out, it is not even a native New Yorker! In fact it is classified as an "invasive species". (Come here to eat our pizza, eh?)
I'm still learning #ornithology. :)) So I finally noticed I had no idea what this little iridescent thing is, everywhere, scurrying about...

And I've just now learned definitively: this is a European Starling in its iridescent summer plumage (like a glossy ibis!).

Who knew? O.K. then... thinking the Benson version would do nicely. After a long day, Cue up a mellow song and take a little walk....

On Broadway....

#newyork #NYC #UWS #Manhattan #birds #Broadway #starling #myphoto #myphotos #gplusrefugee #music #musique
Without a doubt one of the most iconic songs to a generation....
Been a while since listening &/or sharing this. Always feel a wave of hope & nostalgia for a better world here.
