Song Lyric Sunday – “Lydia Purple”

Being Lydia!

First of all, I know it isn’t Sunday; however, my site has been under some behind-the-scenes reno’s and I haven’t been able to add new content until now.

Helen, over at This Thing Called Life One Word At A Time switched things up this week. Instead of a word theme, she gave us a topic. It is a song from an artist/singer who shares your name”.

Now I don’t know any singers or songwriters with the name Lydia, but I do know a song that means a lot to me. My sister is 8 years older than me and she had a real love of music, especially folk, rock, etc. She introduced me to the Beatles, Dave Clark Five, Gerry & the Pacemakers, and many more.

Amid the “more” was a band local to the Candian West Coast. At the time they called themselves the Collectors and they had…

Complications…

Cyranny's Cove

Fred had texted him early the same morning. “Show up a little earlier, man. I’ve got something to show you!” was all it said. Kevin wasn’t on the curious side, but he wondered what kind of surprise awaited him.

Sipping on his cup of strong black coffee, at the café just outside their office, he scanned down the crowd, trying to spot his old friend’s silhouette. He noticed his fingers tapping nervously on the wooden table, as Fred stopped by the counter to order his latté, before walking to him, throwing his bag and jacket on the banquette.

So, what’s with all the mystery, pal?

Frederic didn’t seem too eager to get talking, but they both knew they didn’t have much time before the monthly meeting with the company’s accountants.

When’s the last time you spoke to Laura, Kev?

He couldn’t believe he had rushed in earlier to talk about

A Song A Day in May: 80s Nuclear War Anxiety

Waldina

The Music I listened to and loved in the 80s had an influence on me, it’s undeniable. Along with the books I read, the television shows and movies I watched, the people I met, they all helped shape create the foundation of who I am today. Would I be me today if I hadn’t seen “The Day After” at a young age and had a near-obsession level of paranoia over my skin getting peeled off in a nuclear blast? Who’s to say? Did the artists of the music I listen to and their speaking out on political and social matters shape me? Absolutely.

I stumbled across Stereogum‘s list of 80s songs about nuclear war and it was nostalgia on full volume for me. Their list included songs I may not have realized at the time were as political as they were, but now with adult eyes and…

This is a VERY short post so no one worries about me, since it’s been almost a week since I last posted.

We are here in Clearwater Beach, FL having a WONDERFUL time.  I’m very frustrated at the moment though, because I just made my first little video of the moving Gulf water after sunset and the interesting patterns it was making, but even though it’s possible to post it here, it isn’t possible to remove my real name from the video (which I have never used on this blog).   So I won’t be able to post it after all.  Grrrr!    Trust me, it was very cool.   If I can find a way to remove my identifying info, I’ll definitely put it here.

I have about a gazillion photos, so I’ll be writing a longer post using some of those pictures in the next few days, or I just…
