Better To Sing and Shout Then To Say Prayers




Hello my friends
Hello world

I said it once before
And I said it with no fear
For most of us here and now
The end is very near

But for regrets
This is neither the time
or the place
Better that we got out
with a little bit of style
And a little bit of grace
Like a climatic ending scene
Of an epic motion picture
We are all beautiful losers
And we are all beautiful sinners
In this global life drama
We are indeed among the last
Both planet and inhabitants
Destined for fatal crash
Better to sing and shout
Then to say prayers
Because we are not the audience
We are the players.

DJ Vibe feat Ithaka - You

Súplica


340ml - Shotgun

  
Tirem-nos tudo,
Mas deixem-nos a música!

Tirem-nos a terra em que nascemos,
Onde crescemos
E onde descobrimos pela primeira vez
que o mundo é assim:
um tabuleiro de xadrez...

tirem-nos a luz do sol que os aquece,
a lua lírica do shingombela
nas noites mulatas
da selva moçambicana
(essa lua que nos semeou no coração
a poesia que encontramos na vida)
tirem-nos a palhota – humilde cubata
onde vivemos e amamos,
tirem-nos a machamba que nos dá o pão,
tirem-nos o calor do lume
(que nos é quase tudo)
– mas não nos tirem a música!

Podem desterrar-nos,
Levar-nos
Para longes terras,
Vender-nos como mercadoria,
Acorrentar-nos
À terra, do sol à lua e da lua ao sol,
– mas seremos sempre livres
se nos deixarem a música!

Que onde estiver nossa canção,
Mesmo escravos, senhores seremos;
E mesmo mortos viveremos.
E no nosso lamento escravo
Estará a terra onde nascemos,
A luz do nosso sol,
A lua dos shingombelas,
O calor do lume,
A palhota onde vivemos,
A machamba que os dá o pão!

E tudo será novamente nosso,
Ainda que de cadeia nos pés
E azorrague no dorso...
E o nosso queixume
Será uma libertação
Derramada em nosso canto!

– por isso pedimos,
de joelhos pedimos:
tirem-nos tudo...
mas não nos tirem a vida,
não nos levem a musica!

L. Marques, 4/1/1949

Provocação* Religiosa #5


I have something to show you.


More pieces of the puzzle.


I couldn't believe it.I thought I was making it up in my head, that it could not be true.


- What?


What this is.


What the symbols spell out is a passage from the Koran.


Quyama...the day of final judgement.


On a spacecraft,teachings of the ancient prophet Mohammed?

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised


The Revolution Will Not Be Televised- Gil Scott Heron
Colocado por larsen42

You will not be able to stay home, brother.
You will not be able to plug in, turn on and cop out.
You will not be able to lose yourself on skag and skip,
Skip out for beer during commercials,
Because the revolution will not be televised.

The revolution will not be televised.
The revolution will not be brought to you by Xerox
In 4 parts without commercial interruptions.
The revolution will not show you pictures of Nixon
blowing a bugle and leading a charge by John
Mitchell, General Abrams and Spiro Agnew to eat
hog maws confiscated from a Harlem sanctuary.
The revolution will not be televised.

The revolution will not be brought to you by the
Schaefer Award Theatre and will not star Natalie
Woods and Steve McQueen or Bullwinkle and Julia.
The revolution will not give your mouth sex appeal.
The revolution will not get rid of the nubs.
The revolution will not make you look five pounds
thinner, because the revolution will not be televised, Brother.

There will be no pictures of you and Willie May
pushing that shopping cart down the block on the dead run,
or trying to slide that color television into a stolen ambulance.
NBC will not be able predict the winner at 8:32
or report from 29 districts.
The revolution will not be televised.

There will be no pictures of pigs shooting down
brothers in the instant replay.
There will be no pictures of pigs shooting down
brothers in the instant replay.
There will be no pictures of Whitney Young being
run out of Harlem on a rail with a brand new process.
There will be no slow motion or still life of Roy
Wilkens strolling through Watts in a Red, Black and
Green liberation jumpsuit that he had been saving
For just the proper occasion.

Green Acres, The Beverly Hillbillies, and Hooterville
Junction will no longer be so damned relevant, and
women will not care if Dick finally gets down with
Jane on Search for Tomorrow because Black people
will be in the street looking for a brighter day.
The revolution will not be televised.

There will be no highlights on the eleven o'clock
news and no pictures of hairy armed women
liberationists and Jackie Onassis blowing her nose.
The theme song will not be written by Jim Webb,
Francis Scott Key, nor sung by Glen Campbell, Tom
Jones, Johnny Cash, Englebert Humperdink, or the Rare Earth.
The revolution will not be televised.

The revolution will not be right back after a message
bbout a white tornado, white lightning, or white people.
You will not have to worry about a dove in your
bedroom, a tiger in your tank, or the giant in your toilet bowl.
The revolution will not go better with Coke.
The revolution will not fight the germs that may cause bad breath.
The revolution will put you in the driver's seat.

The revolution will not be televised, will not be televised,
will not be televised, will not be televised.
The revolution will be no re-run brothers;
The revolution will be live.

I am the boy your mother wanted you to meet
But I am broken and torn with halos at my feet
And with your purest light why don’t you shine on me
Oh, I should have been an angel, but I’m too dumb to speak

Querido Pai Natal

"Neste Natal não quero que gastes muito dinheiro comigo, portanto vou-te pedir uma prenda simbólica de custo reduzido mas que me fará, e aos que me rodeiam, muito feliz!

O que eu te vou pedir custa entre 1 a 2€uros e encontra-se em diferentes papelarias e outros estabelecimentos deste pequeno país chamado Portugal e por vezes até na Europa.

Gostava portanto de te pedir um bilhete premiado com o 1º (... vá 1º ou 2º) prémio do €uromilhões ou, se não for possível um bilhete premiado do totoloto. Julgo que te ficará em conta!"[F]

Lullatone Plays Pajama Pop Pour Vous


 


"Imagine if Sigur Ros and Architecture in Helsinki were planning on recording an album together, but the studio they was already double booked! Therefore they decided to record it in on of the member's bedroom on his cassette player. Just then Kahimi Karie called, so they said "Oh great, why don't you come over too? We'll have a slumber party tonight," and she said, "Ok." They started recording but it was getting late and they were afraid that their neighbors might complain if they were too loud, so they replaced all guitar parts with music boxes. About that time Kahimi showed up and said "Let's order a pizza, I'm starving." Next they were eating the pizza they got thirsty, but the only thing they had in the refrigerator was milk. Milk has that thing in it that makes you sleepy, so they all got a little sleepy, and then singer guy from Sigur Ros decided his voice was too high for this project, so he asked Kahimi to sing. She did and it sounded great! And then they all fell asleep. The End." - Shawn James Seymour

Lullatone - Bedroom Bossa Band

  
Excelentes melodias para relaxar e adormecer (muitos sonhos tive ao som de pajama pop),bela surpresa descoberta por acaso no início do ano, um álbum que me enche as medidas.
Os 3 primeiros álbuns encontram-se no Folktronica.
