Review; Maroon 5: “Red Pill Blues”

What's So Special About Music Anyways?

“Best 4 U” starts with a simple melodic figure through instrumentation and electronics that establish a faint groove that holds firm throughout the whole song. Vocals for the first verse join in quickly after, and these vocals emulate the relaxed vibe that the instrumental section has previously introduced. Throughout the selection, the band toys with the adding and subtracting of instruments; however, the instrumental part of this selection is primarily minimal so the vocals are clearly heard, and the vibe can remain mellow.

“What Lovers Do” features SZA, and it starts with a small, single tone motive that leads into the first verse that has a more upbeat back-track compared to the precious track. The background music to this song is minimal; however, it supplies a thicker groove that helps it to remain upbeat throughout the entire work. The lyrics of this song aren’t overly comprehensive, but they are quite…

My sister Phillo is heartbroken today. David Cassidy was her teenage idol. She had posters of him all over the bedroom wall and on the ceiling.  Da used to go mad at her for ripping the paint off  with the sellotape…

David Cassidy 2

Wednesday’s Word

Fearless

Wednesday’s word is…….wait for it………thanksgiving! 🦃🦃❤️❤️

I like this quote: “Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.” — Cicero

(According to Wikipedia, Marcus Tullius Cicero was a Roman politician and lawyer, who served as consul in the year 63 BC. He came from a wealthy municipal family of the Roman equestrian order, and is considered one of Rome’s greatest orators and prose stylists.)

One of the email devotions I read on a daily basis is from the Ravi Zacharias international ministries. I wanted to share today’s post by Margeret Manning Schull titled “Finding Gratitude”.

“Interestingly, recent studies have concluded that the expression of gratitude can have profound and positive effects on health, mood, and social connections. In one study on gratitude, researchers randomly assigned participants to groups given one of three tasks. Each week, participants kept a short journal. One group…

Which Leper Are You This Thanksgiving?

The Light Breaks Through

lightstock_370168_small_byrene_haneyOn the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Samaria and Galilee. And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance and lifted their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” When he saw, them he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed. Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. Then Jesus answered, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” And he said to him, “Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.” Luke 17:11-17

Let Me Just Check…

As some of you no doubt know (and if not why not!? I’ve blogged about it enough) we’ve just got back from America. Well, not just, but recently enough for me not to have prepared any new blog posts lately  – that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it. So here’s one that I did the first time we whizzed off to see Kate’s clan over in Huston back in 2015. As you’ll see there was a different guy in charge back then so I’m safe from abuse by Twitter if Nelly The Elephant doesn’t like this blog.

Pardon – oh, Nelly The Elephant? Trump, Trump, Trump. Really, don’t you pay attention to anything I write? I might as well delete all my previous blogs right now!

Anyway, as I was saying – obviously this time things went according to plan (yeah right, you know me too well!) but first…

Letter never sent…

Cyranny's cove

Words unspoken,

feelings never admitted,

bad timing, perhaps.

Confessions carefully laid

kept like a treasure, precious

yet a secret that might not get to be told…

Love wrapped in a perfect letter

never sent, waiting for a chance

meeting again, maybe, someday.

Movie Review: Justice League

The Pink Herald's Blog

Let me premise this review with I am not a comic-reading individual.  My knowledge of the Justice League characters come from Saturday morning cartoons (35+ years ago) and various movies that I have seen over the years.

That being said, last night I took my 11-year old daughter to see the Justice League movie.  It wasn’t a movie I would have gone to on my own.  I’ve never been a comic book fan or even cared about the different aspects of the progression of say, Superman or Batman.

Without having multiple backstories, character knowledge or development, we enjoyed the movie.  I won’t go into too many details, as I won’t be a spoiler to those who have yet to see the movie.

I would actually give the movie 4 out of 5 stars.  Hold your horses comic lovers.  My rating is based on the following criteria:  My 11-year old LOVED…
