  • Richard McLeod - 'Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)' - 31 July 2010 I've been sitting in with Laguna Beach busker Richard McLeod lately. Here's his interpretation of the Eurythmics hit... which I prefer to the melodramatic original. We were in the big alley off PCH, just south of the Toes To The Nose' surf shop. This is the first I'd heard Richard play this song, so I just played octave lines, rather than try to sort out the chord progression (in Ebm).. so I'm confused, and not playing very well here... and I hadn't quite tuned my guitar to his at this point... but I'll post this anyhow, because I really like the sound of Richard's singing and playing. We had his guitar temporarily jacked into my Roland Mobile Cube, which limned it with some nice reverb, as well as made it louder and brighter than usual. Video by sax-player and soundman Happy. Words and music by David A. Stewart and Annie Lennox.

Alongside vivid portraits of rivals from several generations including Jimmy Connors, Pete Sampras, and Roger Federer. He reveals a shattering loss of confidence and the challenges he faced on and off the court. Challenges that include drug use and his relationship with his father. Agassi recounts his spectacular resurrection, a comeback climaxing with his epic run at the 1999 French Open and his march to become the oldest man ever ranked number one.
  • Phantom Ship: A poem by: Dr Rafey Habib Phantom Ship (Lament for Islamic Knowledge) What treasure lay in her stores: Books, limned with gold and red, Farabi, Ghazzali, frayed scrolls of dead Wisdom, Ibn Hazm, papyrus weighed yellow Under age, and majesty of algebra, gilt-edged In symbols; poetry pure in blue Calligraphy, philosophy embossed, Circling outward on golden pages Of Medieval gloss; astronomy, the Heavens laid out in Arabic, myth, Apothegm. What intellect, apostasy Weighed her sails, sinking. Where did she go? Sailing From the Eastern sun, on Reddening seas, ploughing Shadow of silver-grey, her journey Just begun, when dark Lightning struck her sail: A thousand years Ago; gazing upon Al-Asharis stern face, she Fled beneath the waves. Forgotten, betrayed, Her beams rotting, she Dreams, from her depth, of the White surface.

  • Albéric Magnard - Symphony No. 2 Op. 6 - I. Ouverture. Assez animè (2/2) Albéric Magnard (1865-1914) Symphony No. 2 in E major, Op. 6 I. Ouverture. Assez animè II. Danses. Vif III. Chant variè. Très nuancè IV. Final. Vif et gai After halting first steps, Magnard hit his stride with amazing fullness as the decade of the '90s loomed -- his mid-twenties. In his influential French Music: From the death of Berlioz to the death of Fauré in 1951 Martin Cooper roundly declared, "The first two symphonies are apprentice's work" and most commentators have echoed him. It is better said that the Symphony No. 1 is Magnard's first masterpiece. The whole man is present in it -- intensity, relentless élan, contrapuntal thinking, complete and assured orchestral command (with its piquantly reed-limned tone colors), cogently if closely argued narrative unfolding, and the whole, couched in an arresting lyricism veering from the violent to the ecstatic, impelled toward a lofty goal. The First, too, features the first of those skirling scherzi that overtake a number of later works to seize one by the hair with a keen sense of perilous adventure. To these characteristic oddments the opening of the Second Symphony, composed over 1892-1893, adds Magnard's notorious brusquerie -- that coup de théâtre peremptoriness pointing up the essentially dramatic nature of his musical imagination. Commentators have also taken Magnard to task for his employment of "cyclic procedures" -- the recall of themes from previous movements after the manner of the last movement of Beethoven's ...

  • - Open: An Autobiography by Andre Agassi From Andre Agassi, one of the most beloved athletes in history and one of the most gifted men ever to step onto a tennis court, a beautiful, haunting autobiography. Agassi's incredibly rigorous training begins when he is just a child. By the age of 13, he is banished to a Florida tennis camp that feels like a prison camp. Lonely, scared, a ninth-grade dropout, he rebels in ways that will soon make him a 1980s icon. He dyes his hair, pierces his ears, dresses like a punk rocker. By the time he turns pro at 16, his new look promises to change tennis forever, as does his lightning-fast return. And yet, despite his raw talent, he struggles early on. We feel his confusion as he loses to the world's best, his greater confusion as he starts to win. After stumbling in three Grand Slam finals, Agassi shocks the world, and himself, by capturing the 1992 Wimbledon. Overnight, he becomes a fan favorite and a media target. Agassi brings a near-photographic memory to every pivotal match and every relationship. Never before has the inner game of tennis and the outer game of fame been so precisely limned. Alongside vivid portraits of rivals from several generations - Jimmy Connors, Pete Sampras, Roger Federer - Agassi gives unstinting accounts of his brief time with Barbra Streisand and his doomed marriage to Brooke Shields. He reveals a shattering loss of confidence. And he recounts his spectacular resurrection, a comeback climaxing with his epic run at the 1999 French Open and his ...
  • Béla Bartók - String Quartet No. 4, III-IV String Quartet No. 4 in C major, Sz. 91, BB 95 (1928) I. Allegro II. Prestissimo, con sordino III. Non troppo lento IV. Allegretto pizzicato V. Allegro molto Novák Quartet Bartók's String Quartet No. 4 was written in the summer of 1928 and premiered that fall by the Kolisch Quartet, led by Arnold Schoenberg's brother-in-law, Rudolf Kolisch. The work represents both an intensification and relaxation of elements present in Bartók's previous quartet, completed a year before the fourth. While the radically dissonant harmonic language and rigorous motivic development found in the third string quartet are intensified in the fourth quartet, the third's tightly interwoven single-movement structure is, in the fourth, "opened out" into a more easily comprehended, five-movement span arranged in Bartók's characteristic "arch" form. The composer did point out, however, that the five movements functioned collectively according to the template of sonata form. Earlier commentators suggested that Bartók had ventured into a personal style of serialism or even complete atonality with this work, a conclusion that while not entirely accurate is understandable. The first movement presents in rapid succession three motive-groupings, small melodic cells that are expanded and embellished. The first is a dissonant giusto phrase in counterpoint, the second an emphatic, six-note declamation that twists upward a minor third and brusquely drops back down, and the third a longer, lyrical phrase that is ...

  • Dimmu Borgir - Architecture of a Genocidal Nature An awesome Dimmu Borgir song accompanied by old military footage. Lyrics: A dismal universal hiss, the sound of public scorn The brush that sweeps across the spectral fields This landscape is not without a sense of epic wonder A vast scale that places this sprawling underworld Into a realm of frames With a blood-storm fading into the distance Floating without directions over this smouldering landscape Caught in a moment of transformation These shades of anatomic malignant nature Approached on another in an unpleasant way Frozen in the act of speech, desperate to express it's state Created in a shape to accommodate a wide variety of demonic forms The realm of the benighted aristocracy of evil most pure This is where wounds of deadly hate have pierced so deep Emerged from the depths of the earth gasps It rages against mankind, to annihilate the earth and worse It spills the blood like rain, the beauty of death it represents Devouring their flesh with a razorblade smile Genes would still blindly carry on smouldering ember of hell Limned with gold leaf, the scarlet brush That sweep all traces of time, place and pattern Total death in every nation Monuments of vanquished civilization Just as brilliantly removed ruthlessly eliminated The cornerstone of human emotions Has now been drained away I saw death of a most uncommon nature

We are tied by fetters of past or future interactions, by manifestations of omnipotent causality.

  • GENE TIERNEY - NOCTURNE Music and Poem NOCTURNE The hood of night pulled 'cross my eyes, Does cloud the day in dark disguise, And screens events within the lids, Of images the day forbids. Bent back against affliction's crush, O'er plaintive twisting falls a hush. As trodden worm, I turn to lumber, And fall from grace into a slumber, If mercy comes and I awoken, A quickened spirit, bright, unbroken, Was from my eyes removed the potion, By tender fondling of devotion. So ringed by those who went before, I stop to gaze at them once more, Embedded pearls in weave of night, The pinpoint limned shafts of light. But, now I leave this earthly cluster, All human things have lost their luster. Released from darkness I do free, The breath of life that dwelled in me. -shanghaibenny2, May 2009 Impressions of the life of screen legend Gene Tierney who lived much of her life in the 'antechamber of hope'.
  • In the Name of Love In the Name of Love She could have been Deborah Kerr's sister— Deborah Kerr in From "Here to Eternity"— with that bobbed hair, hair that I never expected to like but then fell in love with. She had that quick-to-laugh way women have, some women, that most men associate with fun. A good time. And she had a white Chrysler when I met her. One day, she took me out on the backroads. She talked about what a dud Dave was— Dave was her husband. And she wanted me to know what a disappointment he was to her. How they'd gotten together young, how she wanted out. The radio was on. Down low, playing U2. Perfection is a white Chrysler with all the windows rolled down, a spring breeze blowing in. A long, glowing moment. Ohio isn't exactly Waikiki Beach on Oahu— the scene in the movie where Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr roll around in moonlight- limned surf was filmed there—but a road is, at least, a direction. This one was where my Deborah Kerr lookalike was who she was, and on her way to a separation and divorce. I was someone who'd listen. I did turn up the radio. Not to drown out a dull world— what lasts is always and forever kicking the hell and bejesus out of what doesn't— but because a piece of me knew that what we love may not love us back or in a way we can't accept or use. I wanted to play a song each of us might recall when we needed to, down the road somewhere. Copyright (c) 2010 Roy Bentley All rights reserved.

  • Fievel Goes South (2009) "Ive been to the Agora", touts legendary indie film icon Kevan Coastner (Water World), in discussing his latest release, which bends the Prosciutto Arch into new and fascinating formatic cinemascapes. "When I birthed World", Coastner begins, via Skype from his yacht in the Bermuda Triangle (he claims, 'the sea is my muse'), I limned a visceral archipelago contextually". Fievel does not disappoint, on both subtextural and quasi-post neo-expressionistic levels. The latest release from tiny creative powerhouse Lighthouse Films is a contemporary American Tale. Fievel bites Ratatouille in its cinemascopic keister and churns up Stewart Little sentimentalist ennui in its raw and grainy urbanities. Special dedication to David Miller.

The First, too, features the first of those skirling scherzi that overtake a number of later works to seize one by the hair with a keen sense of perilous adventure. To these characteristic oddments the opening of the Second Symphony, composed over 1892-1893, adds Magnard's notorious brusquerie -- that coup de théâtre peremptoriness pointing up the essentially dramatic nature of his musical imagination. Commentators have also taken Magnard to task for his employment of "cyclic procedures" -- the recall of themes from previous movements after the manner of the last movement of Beethoven's ...
  • Albéric Magnard - Symphony No. 2 Op. 6 - I. Ouverture. Assez animè (1/2) Albéric Magnard (1865-1914) Symphony No. 2 in E major, Op. 6 I. Ouverture. Assez animè II. Danses. Vif III. Chant variè. Très nuancè IV. Final. Vif et gai After halting first steps, Magnard hit his stride with amazing fullness as the decade of the '90s loomed -- his mid-twenties. In his influential French Music: From the death of Berlioz to the death of Fauré in 1951 Martin Cooper roundly declared, "The first two symphonies are apprentice's work" and most commentators have echoed him. It is better said that the Symphony No. 1 is Magnard's first masterpiece. The whole man is present in it -- intensity, relentless élan, contrapuntal thinking, complete and assured orchestral command (with its piquantly reed-limned tone colors), cogently if closely argued narrative unfolding, and the whole, couched in an arresting lyricism veering from the violent to the ecstatic, impelled toward a lofty goal.

  • Not Another *** Movie Former MTV executive Joel Gallen makes his feature directorial debut with this broad spoof of the popular *** comedy genre, lampooning dozens of movies including American Pie (1999), American Beauty (1999), Bring It On (2000), Clueless (1995), She's All That (1999), Road Trip (2000), Can't Hardly Wait (1998), 10 Things I Hate About You (1999), Never Been Kissed (1999), and even the *** films of an earlier era such as The Breakfast Club (1985). At the aptly titled "John Hughes High School," aspiring artist Janey Briggs (Chyler Leigh) is an outcast because of her plain, bespectacled looks and paint-splattered overalls. Football hero Jake Wyler (Chris Evans) makes a bet that he can transform Janey into a gorgeous prom queen, a wager he may come to regret as he discovers Janey's true inner beauty. As their relationship blossoms, several other characters are limned, including a Nasty Cheerleader (Jaime Pressly), a Token Black Guy (Deon Richmond), a Stupid Fat Guy (Ron Lester), an Obsessed Best Friend (Eric Jungmann), an Undercover Reporter (Beverly Polcyn), the Cruelest Girl in School (Mia Kirshner), a ***y Blonde Guy (Eric Christian Olsen), and several others. A nod to the multiple films that inspired it, Not Another *** Movie (2001) was originally to have been entitled "Ten Things I Hate About Clueless Road Trips When I Can't Hardly Wait to Be Kissed."
  • Dimmu Borgir - Architecture of A Genocidal Nature [[STUDIO VERSION]] A dismal universal hiss, the sound of public scorn The brush that sweeps across the spectral fields This landscape is not without a sense of epic wonder A vast scale that places this sprawling underworld Into a realm of frames With a blood-storm fading into the distance Floating without directions over this smouldering landscape Caught in a moment of transformation These shades of anatomic malignant nature Approached on another in an unpleasant way Frozen in the act of speech, desperate to express it's state Created in a shape to accommodate a wide variety of demonic forms The realm of the benighted aristocracy of evil most pure This is where wounds of deadly hate have pierced so deep Emerged from the depths of the earth gasps It rages against mankind, to annihilate the earth and worse It spills the blood like rain, the beauty of death it represents Devouring their flesh with a razorblade smile Genes would still blindly carry on smouldering ember of hell Limned with gold leaf, the scarlet brush That sweep all traces of time, place and pattern Total death in every nation Monuments of vanquished civilization Just as brilliantly removed ruthlessly eliminated The cornerstone of human emotions Has now been drained away I saw death of a most uncommon nature
  • Blind - Original Song A folky little song about twisted love - this topic seems to be a favorite of mine! I know why you can't be with me You're afraid you might fall in love Everything will come crashing down The wall of pain that you hide behind Oh, the way the light hangs on you Spinning into that golden beam Angel dark with prismatic grace Pray to mercy it burns me blind Morning infinite opens out Into blood and fantastic sprawls Limned in effortless summer sun Draining into that virgin blue Oh, the song of your sweet descent Into valleys of longing deep There the worship those fearful gods Unintimidated by them When you walk, they come two by two From the storm of wrath unleashed Angel rise to give hope no life Climb to heaven and vouch for me I know why you can't stay with me You're afraid you might fall in love All the good you've done up in flames Pray to mercy it burns me blind
  • Taiwan OCAC: Painter Lee Mei-shu was a practitioner of the beauty of life 影片名稱:「Painter Lee Mei-shu was a practitioner of the beauty of life」 .tw Painter Lee Mei-shu painted the beautiful blue sky with a streak of orange and an arched bridge with the water underneath reflecting off the light of dawn, to make a portrait of Sanxia scenery. Her impressionistic paintings limned the local Taiwanese countryside while capturing the vivid lives of ordinary people. A visit to the Sanxia Lee Shu-mei Memorial Museum is like a trip down the memory lane, with each painting telling a different story from the past. Lee Mei-shu may be most praised for leading the reconstruction project of the Temple of SanXia. Many national treasure-level artists were invited to spend 30-plus years working on what some have called the "Eastern carving Hall of Fame". Lee Mei-shu's roots are in the countryside, thus she loves to present the sceneries of San Xia. Lee Mei-shu is a practitioner of beauty of life rather than just a painter!
  • Dragon Age Origins: Lost in Dreams. Fade Run, Part 6 Part 6 deals with completing A Templar's Nightmare, and freeing all of the Hero's companions before finally going on to tackle the Sloth Demon. A Templar's Nightmare is frustrating to many players, simply because of the sheer number of portals and mouse holes, leaving many to wander in circles literally; the core part of this island is divided into three sets of rooms in a circular arrangement. This video shows the easiest and fastest way through, whilst picking up all the bonuses and defeating all enemies for experience. The first bonus is through the mouse hole in the room adjacent to your starting point (video time 00:15). After that, when you reach the last room with the burning bookcase, do not use the beckoning purple-limned door. Instead, use the mouse hole next to it (video time 01:20). This takes you to the next section, with an Ogre in the same room. Golem form, and some more huffing and puffing as you duke it out with that Ogre; a nosy Rage Abonmination joins the fray, but a single Hurled boulder will deal with it whilst damaging the Ogre at the same time. Soon you'll come to the end of that section. The correct exit is the Spirit Door (video time 02:40), which is in the room guarded by a pair of Rage Abominations. The Door takes you into the third section of this island, and Rage Abominations pour in to welcome you. Use the Spirit Form's spells to land the first blows, then the Golem form's Hurl and Quake to send this greeting committee on their way ...
