Designed/developed IT systems in finance, but had a stroke in 2016, aged 48. Returned to developing mainly health-related software from home, plus do some voluntary work. Married, with a grown-up, left-home daughter.
Peter was desperate. Why could he not find himself a girlfriend? Admittedly, he was excitable, but wasn’t that just his enthusiasm shining through? So, when his workmate, Paul, mentioned a friend, Peter jumped at the chance, and a blind date was arranged. Would this finally be the woman of his dreams?
It blows me away that every new song nowadays seems to come with a well-produced video, where I remember the first music videos accompanying tracks as an optional extra.
Earlier, KK posted her “New Music Monday” track on our new blog, Songshine Sounds, and this is no exception. This was released just in the last week, but I guess a lot more time went into producing that video.
Does your spirit crave the new? I know mine does. So every Monday, I will feature a new song that wasn’t even in existence the week before. Yes, it’s true. Great new music is still being made every week. I will mix up the genres and artists to keep the surprises coming.
Indie-Rock band, Sleater-Kinney is known for their sharp, clashing punk rock music, but this week, the band released a much more mellow track. “Worry With You” has a psychedelic, breezy highway kinda-feel. The band’s upcoming tenth studio album, Path of Wellness, will be their first self-produced album and it promises to be one that captures the relationship ups and downs we’ve all been experiencing during Covid. Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker sing in unison during the chorus, “Let’s get lost baby/And take a wrong turn/That’s the life, that’s the life/We never ever wanna get burned.”
In response to Fandango’s Who Won the Week post, I have been looking at my own newsfeeds.
I’ll warn you, this is quite a long post, but maybe you’d like to ponder the rights and wrongs of this situation?
Last Tuesday, an inquest into an event called the Ballymurphy Massacre, which occurred during The Troubles of Northern Ireland, found that none of the victims had done anything which would have justified their shooting.
It doesn’t sound much, does it? Innocent? But these victims, who were all civilians, were hitherto dismissed as Irish Republican Army (IRA) gunmen. So to their families, it was a big deal, to have their names cleared.
