  1. I saw LC's Post.


    Well, for New Year's Eve, there is a possible chance, in Vienna. Or watch on T.V.. Or, get tickets there.

    This is part symphony orchestra show, and who knows who else will perform.


    It will be on channel 50 KOCE, which is a PBS affiliate. At 8:00 PM. PST.

    Other start times might be a different  hour, or the same time at eight.


    In their own words, not mine, they said the show will feature,

    [ but not limited to ] the music of Johan Strauss and family,

    with an emphasis this year on the work of Joseph Strauss.

    The conductor is Daniel Barrenboim, and Julie Andrew Hosts.


    Wel, l.... if anyone knows someone at the show, here's a chance,

    possibly to perform before a worldwide crowd, they said.

  2. Congratulations Eric, on the swift 10,000 th and more listeners.


    They are shaking your shoulders...Eric...Eric... they await for more.

    Like the times of the past.  It's your time again !


    Now, you are feeling the Ying-Yang.

    When you do something, there is a positive result.

    When any of us is doing less, something else is Always happening

  3. The song is great, Eric!

    I first saw your post, four days ago, but I'm glad I waited to reply, now

    I will listen more.


    I  listened mostly to the music, then it hit me.

    The song does what Brian's songs do.

    You become a part of the music,

    and the music become part of the words.

    Brian will put alto sax, and play the same notes he sings.


    Our design , when there is no partner.

    Women, enjoy family , friends, and their home, and are fulfilled.

    Men are design to get fulfillment through work, family.

    So, we move on.

    Going to read at bookstores, cafe's, etc. To expand our social circles.


    Philosophical now.

    I learned about this, in a class I'm in.

    the palm of my hand facing up is Ying. Turned down ibecomes Yang


    Life is like Ying and Yang. Once one turns or moves, it creates a working affect.

    The silence you experienced caused that affect. From nothing, to something. Or, to a positive result.


    So is the universe. Like strings attached to the sun, it looks like nothing is happening.

    Then you see the planets moving. Imagine strings attached to the sun.

    Something is always happening.



    I used to joke with a friend saying, "it's been a record shafting year!

    Someone got the goldmine, and someone got the shaft.

    Even that is ying and yand affect !



    So it was the silence, that finally helped to  move you !

    From Ying....to Yang ! I guess, from cause...to effect !

  4. Marianne Faithfull. The first disc has synthesizers and bass. The second is more guitar. A funky  post gem, they said, from 1979. 


    Harry Nilsson. 17 CD's from 14 album, with three CD's being outtakes.


    Sly and The Family Stone. Four Discs.


    Public Image, Ltd. Sex Pistols John Lydon's post-sex pistols album.


    Laraaji. New Age Music.


    And more. Maybe look up new re-issued music.  Or remastered music.


  5. It's also availabe on a two disc CD set, I saw yesterday while shopping.

    I bought the 40th anniversary collection of Bruce Lee's, "Enter The Dragon".

    My master, now a grandmaster, is Bruce's double in that movie.He performed stunts,  

    and appearing in other  spots in his most famous movie.

    But, I will definitely get the CD, sometime


    It was written-up in todays Calender section, under "Pop and Hiss" .


    ...With  Guitar riffs,choruses, screams, guitar solos, etc,, of the early jams.

    Plus between song banter, radio bumpers, etc.

    Check out "Hippy-Hippy-Shake" to uncover the power of music.





  6. Kelly is promoting her very highly regarded album, "Wrapped In Red".

    With T.V. guests: Danica Patrick, Robin Williams, Blake Shelton, Heidi Klum, and Whoopi Goldberg.


    Rod Stewart has a Christmas album.

    A song called, "Merry Christmas, Baby" has been playing, alot, on the radio.


    And don't forget the new movies.

  7. I am surprised that Jim Croce isn't in. What a writer and musician.


    I heard Linda Ronstadt talk, on a radio interview. She sounds great, with no weakness at all to her voice.

    It sounds like a normal person would sound like, to me.


    Kiss is bringing Arena Football to Anaheim, California. Along with their friends, one of them said.


    Hall and Oates are working on another single record.

  8. It was just announced that Billy will add another show to his first Ever!! Hollywood Bowl show, on May 17th and 22nd.


    Speaking of shows, there were giveaways to Celine Dion's show and Elton John.

    Front seats and meet-and-greet.  Elton went another step, giving away a tablet, a selected piano,  front row seats and meet- and- greet.

    Oh, his rehearsal piano player has an incredible Christmas song out. He is the only person that Elton trusts to get the band ready

    for live performances. I'll have to look up his name.


    I should have said that the song was first recorded by Billy, then Helen.  Otherwise, it looks like he didn't sing it, also. 


    That was difficult for me to write, since I'm a fan, too.

    I was trying to get that Billy style in the writing. Trying to get a little humour there, too.

    If he knew me, I joke around, but all in a light way. 

  9. At least once per month, starting in January, 2014.

    He's keeping the faith.  Helen Reddy recorded his song once, but he didn't like the way it turned out, in th 70's.   That reminds me to write new words to the same song, A little fun with his song.


    Keeping The Faith:



    I told the world, i didn't like Helen's singing

    She called  me right up,

    With a strong-worded pace

    And never sang my songs again


    All the fussing, and that song didn't chart

    It barely got a fifty dollar start

    From way back when

    It didn't make top ten


    All the nights drinking shakes with some drive-thru tacos

    I couldn't stay skinny all my life

    That was fake

    Could I become a vegetarian?


    My thoughts about that  were too few

    And three was better than two

    -Repeated again. Oh, yeah!


    Bridge of song:


    Then I changed from the fried foods and cookies

    And remembered the lean times and goodies

    With a half glass of wine, I can handle


    'Cause, your fans all remember 

    The songs that you did

    Not for your imperfect sad days




    Every dollar that I spent

    For those happy hours

    Can't be replaced with cool clothes and shades

    And remembering every single day


    Tossed in my mind is the past

    And changing like the wind in a mast

    I'm sailing again

    -Looking forward, again
