Night Owl…Jukebox pt.2

DJ LP’s heavy rotation pt.2


Late edition to the music thread….

Evening Night Owls. No rhyme or reason, hopefully something for everybody. Songs from my teen years that my friend’s parents would rock… that we then latched on too, and some more recent tunes from high school-present.  Chat on…

    I was sad to read the comment on the previous thread that people in the Inauguration audience expressed their dislike or distaste for the poem read. I listened and watched on TV and was impressed….both by the poem and the poet. Sometimes, watching on TV gives a better view than in person at such a large event. I thought it expressed some very important ideas, and for such an event, you don’t write a fourteen line sonnet. I felt the entire poem matched the solemnity and importance of the occasion, and I’ve been delighted with what I’ve read about the poet.
    I believe that not a lot of people are truly attuned to listening to poetry…..one has to listen with heart and mind.

    • July 1, 2013 at 11:41 pm

      Yes, sitting by a nice warm fire is an advantage for poetry. I enjoyed it again more on YouTube after reading about the poet. It added to Pres. Obama’s speech about equal rights for gays.

    • July 1, 2013 at 11:49 pm

      I thought the poem and the reading were both wonderful. Hence why I included it.

      Ok, now I’m really going to bed.

      I agree, carolyn. (I’m also following Richard Blanco on Twitter and his website … he doesn’t tweet or post much, which I think means he’s keeping busy, but he just seems like he’s got so much going for him, to me!)

      Ms. Dudette, you are just remarkable!
      No words can express your repertoire of music!
      Where did this all begin? How did you acquire such a variety of appreciation for the good stuff!
      Stay out of my head……but always close to my heart with your acquired taste.
      You are too much for words.

    Can’t think of a president who’s ever had to navigate so much turmoil/sadness at home/abroad..EVER! Not even including the AZ firefighters

    Stopping by to give “Thanks” to Chips and all her wonderful helpers…What a ride to the Mother Land!!
    This song is dedicated to you all…and to the leader of the free world President Obama for putting Africa on the map..like never seen before in history… We are grateful beyond imagination…I can tell my grandchildren who “truly”t cared for us (no handouts) and his name is.. well we would probably call him “His Majesty Barack Obama” :-):-) All I can say..I am truly blessed to be alive…
    Again my heartfelt thanks for this blog and Chips…Truly a blessing:-)

        Kasai, my dear, I have been in tears bursting with pride. I just could not help reflect how proud PBO’s father would have been so proud of him. Yes, we all know that he was not around to raise him and only HIS father knows the reasons why. He was a smart intelligent man despite everything else, he was his father and maybe, just maybe it was fate for the two of them to be set a part.
        I do remember reading that his father came back to Africa to try to make a difference and was disappointed with the corruption and disparity among the nations. (reminds of the Repubs in Congress) I can only imagine what that can do to an intelligent man’s self respect, pride and ego.(reminds me how my father, brothers and uncles had to deal with racism in the south while raising their families).
        I am so proud of the people of Africa in the love they showed for our President and their Ambassador.

          Too bad his father didn’t stick around to see the goodness of his son…

    • July 2, 2013 at 2:21 am

      Oh Kasai … that is just so special. Thank you. I was about to log out but could not resist watching and am so glad I have. Such a positive way to rest and awake to a new day of a world in which Barack Obama is President and one of the most empathetic leaders to have ever graced humanity.

      Wow, Kasai, what a truly beautiful tribute to Africa and the Africans. I am bursting with so much much pride. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this. I wish this video could be shared with young Americans of all races who have not yet internalized the negative image of Africa. Between you, Zizi, and Chips’ magnificent coverage of the President’s trip to Africa, TOD members have been exposed to the positive side of Africa that many Americans rarely ever see.

      Aww, thanks for that, Dudette. My mother and I were visiting my aunt at the time of the royal wedding, and I remember we all got up at 5 a.m. to watch it on TV. The next time I lost sleep over her, unfortunately, was the night Brian Williams announced on NBC that she had been in the car accident … I stayed awake that entire night to watch the coverage. Tragic. She’d be so proud of her two sons, today, and would be welcoming her first grandchild!

      • 68 Dudette
        July 2, 2013 at 2:24 am

        I skipped studying for an exam so I could watch the wedding. It was so beautiful.

        Was visiting a friend in NC when she did, we just couldn’t believe. So tragic. Just awful. I remember bawling like she’d been a member of my family. Tears welling up now, thinking of her two boys. I’m sure she’d be proud of the fine young men they’ve become though. I see so much her in Prince William.

          The boys, now men – and their participation in her funeral – got me the most, as well. Sad, sad, sad.

    Aside from the fact that I’m a Doo Wop fanatic, the guy, Cleveland Still, who is leading this song was 70 years old in 2007 when the group “The Dubs” performed and I watched on PBS. So for all the old timers who love pure harmony…..

      BTW, did anyone share video of the First Ladies session? I was curious to hear the former first lady in a discussion session. Will check back MUCH later to see if anyone answered this question.

      Good Morning, one and all. I am confident I can count on you, or a member of the village, catching the power plant speech. Toodle-di dooo!

        Beautiful response to him!

        Not sure how and when I found out he was on Twitter and started to follow him … but who isn’t on Twitter these days? The Pope, the Queen, greatgrandmothers, etc., we’re all there!

        It made me so glad to see Archbishop Tutu with President Obama. (Truth be told, the last time I saw him was on a PBS World special – I think it was – where he was visiting his friend Richard Branson’s home. Didn’t know they were friends, so that was surprising. And the second surprising thing was that both of them were swimming in Richard’s pool, during his visit. Okay, believe me, that wasn’t a pretty sight – yes, a very, very shallow thing for me to write, and I hope it didn’t sound too disrespectful, but now I must work on getting their images in the pool out of my mind.)

    I haven’t been one of the ones staying up all night, to catch the President’s events live in Africa, so I’m not sure if this has been the case each day. But CNN TV is about to go live in covering the President’s visit to Tanzania. Wow. Shocked, in any case.

      cokie roberts is one of the most extreme propagandists of our generation. it’s such a shame the brilliant obamas HAVE TO cater to dishonest fools such as cokie in order to win elections for themselves and for the democratic party. how they can deal with this rats’ nest of liars and play their games in order to still win elections, just goes to show the brilliance of the obama family…as if we needed any more proof.
