#1. This is a GREAT SONG!!! It’s by Florence and the Machine. I heard it while driving.
That’s the only way I hear ‘new’ music nowadays
#2. Weird, when I was a teenager,
I used to be the one who found stuff before anyone else, well, a few elses.
It’s hard ‘growing up’. Meaning, I can’t sit and listen to music all day.
It’s hard growing up, meaning,
I’m not really grown up, just in a different dimension.
THIS SONG kinda sums it up.
As I was listening to it I was thinking,
Damn them, for being so happy, not fair.
I wonder what it feels like?
And then I thought, what if I could make myself
and those around me happy?
I thought, what if I could decide to be happy?
and make this song come true?
What a dream, a beautiful, wonderful, perfect dream of HAPPY!!!
I hope you love it as much as I do.
One of my favorite bands and one of my favorite songs by them. I found out some interesting facts about the song also. Robert Plant’s lyrics were inspired by the book The Hobbit! too cool!
This evolved from the Yardbirds song “White Summer,” an acoustic solo by Jimmy Page. Many of the same riffs and chords are in it. After The Yardbirds broke up, Led Zeppelin continued to play “White Summer” live. >>
This was one of the few Led Zeppelin songs released as a single in the US. It made it only to #51.
The music was inspired by Jimmy Page’s Celtic ancestry.
This began as an instrumental. Robert Plant came up with backing tracks then lyrics.
Page and Plant started writing this in 1970 at Bron-yr-Aur, the cottage in Wales they went to after a grueling US tour. It had no electricity or running water.
There’s an old English song called “Over The Hills And Far Away” that dates back to the 18th century (It appears in John Gay’s play The Beggar’s Opera). This might be where the band got the title. >>
If you listen closely, you can hear an acoustic guitar playing throughout the song.
*All I can say is as a woman and an American, I am disgusted and embarrassed to see and read what these vile women ranted at this ‘March for Women’.
Which women was this march meant to empower and defend?
Certainly NOT THIS woman. IMHO, they were a disgrace to women everywhere.
They claimed to be speaking for ALL women?
In fact, any and ALL Pro-Life women were EXCLUDED from this so-called all-inclusive march for women.
And for what reason exactly were they marching??? the Unfair treatment of women?
Perhaps they would have been better served protesting at the Saudi embassy?
or Bill Clinton’s doorstep?
Also, from what I’ve read, over 50 of the groups associated with this ‘protest’ were affiliated and funded by George Soros.
I consider myself a true feminist and a free-thinker.
I refuse to be brainwashed by the media or follow the PC crowd like some mindless puppet.
I have respect for those who disagree with me. I know I’m not 100% right about everything. I value the opposing opinions of others and am open to learning, always.
I have many close friendships with some amazing women who strongly disagree with me politically. They are as passionate as I in their beliefs and I love that they are. I adore and respect them even more because they choose to see beyond what separates us and instead see what connects us. THAT’S true friendship.
I have ZERO respect for those women, those hypocrites who preach morality and wail and moan like screeching, self-righteous sirens calling Donald Trump a vile human being on Twitter while skulking around committing adultery and writing/posting photos of porn as poetry. Disgusting.
Yes, I’m judging you.
Put your money where your mouth, practice what you preach, or SHUT yer PieHole, Mata Horny.
Yes, I get upset too, just like you.
No, I don’t hate you, I just hate your hypocrisy.
To all women, EDUCATE yourself, as women, as human beings.
EDUCATE yourself and THINK for yourself. My mantra for myself and my daughters and my son.
I want to make certain that my children are able to live in a world where stupidity and fascism are not considered the norm.
I cannot sit idly by and not speak out when I see so much garbage being spewed.
As always, this is my opinion and thank you for reading me and the article/links below. 🙂
Bomb threats don’t Trump hate:
PIERS MORGAN on the day Madonna and a bunch of famous, foul-mouthed nasty women let down ladies everywhere
It was all going so well.
Millions of women around the world proudly marching to protest about President Donald Trump.
‘End the hate!’ screamed the signs. ‘Love Trumps hate!’
They wore pink pussy hats, and the mood was one of celebration; a joyous gathering of the female gender to make a stand against a hateful man.
This, the March organizers constantly reminded us, was a PEACEFUL protest to prove that women don’t need VIOLENCE to make their point.
Then came Madonna, in her black pussy hat. And she just kept going lower
Then came Madonna, once the fresh, exciting Material Girl, now the bitter, cynical, ageing Vinegar Girl who can always be relied upon to sour anything she touches.
‘Welcome to the revolution of love!’ she shrieked as she took the stage in Washington.
She wore a black pussy hat and a top saying, ‘Feminism is the radical notion that women are people.’ (A quote first coined 30 years ago by feminist writer Marie Shear.)
‘Good did not win this election, but good will win in the end!’ she bellowed. ‘And to our detractors that insist this March will never add up to anything, F**K YOU.’
The crowd whooped, she smirked delightedly, and then repeated her audience-thrilling line: ‘F**K YOU!’
As they whooped even louder, she went even lower.
‘Yes, I’m angry. Yes, I’m outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot of blowing up the White House.’
Let me get this absolutely straight: Madonna, a multi-millionaire pop star with the means to finance any of her many warped desires, has thought ‘an awful lot’ about bombing the home of the President of the United States?
It’s a very serious criminal offence to make a bomb threat, let alone one to the life of the President.
If you, or I, were to say that in a public forum, then we would be almost certainly be arrested, charged and jailed.
Don’t believe me? Try tweeting a bomb threat or saying it as you board a plane. Even if you’re ‘joking’, you’ll be prosecuted.
The FBI is investigating the incident, but Madonna will get away with it. She always does.
How, though, does this disgusting comment sit with the theme of the Women’s March?
How does threatening to assassinate Donald Trump, and all his White House staff for that matter, play into the narrative of ‘End the hate!’ or ‘Love Trumps hate!’
In fact, it’s the complete opposite message. One that tells the world’s women the only way to stop a man you don’t agree with is by killing them.
In one short, disgraceful sentence, Madonna wrecked the Women’s March because she lifted the lid on the more repellent side of feminism: the vile, crude, man-hating, violent, nasty side.
Before I go further, let me self-identity as a feminist.
I love women and believe passionately in gender equality.
I support all women’s rights and have proven this point many times as an employer and promoter of women in the workplace.
But I can’t abide the feminazis, the radical, extreme feminists like Madonna.
Nor can I abide the likes of Kim Kardashian and Emily Ratajkowski when they hijack feminism to justify posting stupid, offensive bird-flipping topless selfies.
It’s about striving to be so good at what you do that your gender is irrelevant, then making sure you are rewarded in the same way as a man. That, surely, is true equality?
As new British Prime Minister Theresa May said yesterday when she was asked what anti-sexism message she would have for President Trump when they meet on Friday: ‘When I sit down, I think the biggest statement that will be made about the role of women is that I will be there as a female prime minister, talking directly to him about the interests we share.’
THAT is a strong, empowered woman.
Theresa May didn’t need to march for her rights as a woman; she let her ability do the talking by marching up the ladder of her profession so capably that she’s now the most powerful person in Britain.
As a result, she has put herself in a position to make the very decisions that will protect and further women’s rights.
Compare and contrast with what’s just happened in America.
Hillary Clinton lost the election because she wasn’t a very good candidate. Trump fought a more successful campaign.
There are many reasons why Hillary was so inept but one of them came from the mouth of one of her biggest supporters, Madeleine Albright.
Albright, too, had been Secretary of State.
During a speech to a group of young women in the primary stage of the US election two years ago, she urged them to vote Hillary by saying: ‘Just remember, there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.’
All Albright had to say, and should have said, was this: ‘I became secretary of state because I was the best candidate, not because I’m a woman. Hillary Clinton should be president because she’s the best candidate, not because she’s a woman.’
Instead, she confirmed many people’s suspicions that the main reason to vote Hillary was because she was a woman and would therefore be the first female president. A sentiment Hillary enthusiastically played up to by appearing on stage at the Democratic Convention to the backdrop of a glass ceiling breaking.
This didn’t just annoy men, it annoyed women.
Trump got 53% of the white female vote. In other words, significantly more white women in America voted for a man instead of the white woman candidate.
I wonder how many of the women marching in America yesterday actually bothered to even vote for Hillary?
It’s a bit late to stop Trump now he’s won. The time to protest was at the ballot box.
No, this March wasn’t about women’s rights.
At its core, it was about Trump-hating and resentment that he won and Hillary lost.
It’s perfectly democratic to march and protest. But it’s not so perfectly democratic to march and protest against the result of a free, democratic election just because the man won.
There’s also blatant hypocrisy at play too. If the sexual morals of a president are so important, where were the marches over Bill Clinton’s treatment of a young intern Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office?
And when it comes to the high moral bar, why was Madonna allowed to offer ‘free blowjobs to anyone who votes Hillary’ without censure from the sisterhood?
Or, if coarse sexual language is so taboo, to tell President Trump to ‘suck a d**k’ on Saturday?
Madonna wasn’t the only celebrity to embarrass herself –
Actress Ashley Judd read out a young poet’s attack on Trump, branding him the Devil and Hitler, mocking his hair and complexion, and cracking a crude ‘wet dreams infused with your own dreams’ incest joke about him and his daughter Ivanka.
Trump may deserve such ridicule for his inappropriate remarks about women.
But where’s the feminism in mocking a hard-working, talented young mother-of-three in this way, just because her father became President?
‘I’m a nasty woman,’ chanted Judd at the end of her address.
Yep, you can say that again.
Madonna wasn’t the only celebrity to embarrass herself during the March.
This March turned from a defense of Women’s Rights into a celebration of Women’s Wrongs – a procession of high profile female celebrities just spewing bile.
When I tweeted my criticism of it, I myself was promptly bombarded by with the most appalling foul-mouthed abuse and death threats by women from all over the world.
I’m big enough, and as they gleefully pointed out, ugly enough, to handle it.
But this wasn’t feminism.
This was nasty women being nasty, whipped into a man-hating frenzy by some very nasty women on a stage.
Love was Trumped by hate and bomb threats.
Ladies, I love you. But if you let the nasty women win, you lose.
(concerning the ‘pu$$y’ comment and the reason for their Pink Pu$$y Hats and the Pu$$y HYSTERIA… )
…All, of course, as their pink-hatted heads attested, were offended that Trump is an old-fashioned guy who is open (and, indeed, vulgar) about his sexual passion for women. I mean, it’s bad enough that he’s unapologetically cis-gendered. It’s worse that he actually talks about sex in a “guy” way.
I should note here that I am in complete accord with the Canadian vlogger who, having watched the entire Billy Bush videotape, concluded that Trump did not boast about mauling women but, instead, made an admittedly vulgar, but otherwise non-specific, and probably completely accurate, wisecrack about what rich men can theoretically can away with. Aside from getting baited into somewhat vulgar badinage in a guys’ locker room kind of way, his behavior was impeccable.
*Do I find that kind of talk/banter offensive?
Yes! Very much so, it’s appalling and disrespectful,
but do I believe it makes someone
a rapist or a misogynistic monster?
No, that’s ridiculous.
ACTIONS speak LOUDER than WORDS… remember that catchy little phrase?
I would point to someone like Joe Biden. This is a career politician, butter melts in his mouth and, in countless videos he is GROPING CHILDREN and women.
This PERVERT gropes and tries to fondle and kiss ANY female he can get his grubby, sleazy lips and hands on.
I have seen ZERO women’s marches protesting him or protesting Bill Clinton’s deplorable treatment of women.
Because the majority of these women’s marchers are puppets brainwashed by the MSM.
They HATE Donald Trump and Conservatism, bottom line
and their ‘Women’s March’ doesn’t give a DAMN about women mistreated by LIBERAL politicians
THAT is the ULTIMATE in hypocrisy.
End of Story
“Love, the poet said, is woman’s whole existence.”
~ Virginia Woolf, Orlando
I was her
Seems so long ago,
selling my soul to others
losing my heart
I am her
Still feeling alone
when I forget to be still
and listen to the wind
I am him
wanting to save the world
wanting to heal the broken
waiting to be healed within
I am you
Seeking a Peace and Love
that I forget to see
