What are you listening to today?

Don't Stop by Fleetwood Mac.  It was my coming out song way back in Christmas 1977.  I play it every holiday season as I prepare to deal with Xmas homophobes.   I also listen to Foo Fighters  My Hero, for similar reasons.  Plenty of heroes on this site to keep inspiring me.

I love Queen,

 

Listening to Queen's first album an early favorite, really takes me back to '73 and the song "Keep yourself alive". The guitar work is fabulous.

I was born in 81 and too young at the time to appreciate the band and their work but the meaning of Bohemian Rhapsody is so powerful. Not to mention the song I Want to Break Free.

Turn It Up - Samantha Fish

 

and

They truly are, and 50 years later (or there about) it still sounds fantastic today. This music takes my mind to Hwy 101 I've just crossed over into Marin county, I'm northbound and I've got the top pulled down, the music is cookin' as I pass by her old haunts....

 

Hearing Janis "takes me there", and the Redwoods come into view....

I still can’t believe he is gone. It seems like yesterday he was still producing and vibrant.

Strangly enough I was just about to type. " I never really liked David Bowie"  But after some consideration and thinking about how i know the opening bars to Gene Genie, life on Mars, up to Fashion and Scary Monsters.  Still recall when this Skinny little fella came on Top of the pops My dad Looking at him and saying "Is that a Man or a Woman" Therefore i decided to retract my comment and say. Yes such a shame he had so much more to give this world and the pleasure we still get from the back catalogue. The memorys that fill you when you hear one of those old tracks still does it for me.

 

 

My listening pleasure today will mostly be Night Club, The album being, Scary World

 

 

Do we still call them Albums?

Yes they are still albums. Even if it’s digital media. I’ll always remember David for “The man who fell to earth”. Although weird and sometimes psychedelic, it was a study of how one can feel out of place in the world, even with success, and failing to find that fit can result in strange exploration, self destructive behavior, and ultimately realizing that what is missing is very simple. In that case it was the character realizing that going home to a dying world to be with their family was preferable to a meaningless life on earth. I’m still touched by the scenes of his family struggling without him and feeling lost on a desert world, and how powerless he felt so far away. 

 

As far as music goes he was a genius and still had it right to the end. As I grew up and revisited much of it I realized he was also a philosophical genius and I owe much of my introspection to his thoughts in various forms of art.

 

One of the reasons I grew to really like the Arcade Fire album “Reflektor” was due to his guidance as a coproducer. I liked them before but he helped them out refining the song “We exist” which is such an anthem for LGBTQ, it’s something I can truly identify with.

The post above took me back to walking the streets of Manchester in 04', the pubs, the clubs, the stadium, the Salford Quays and all

 

I really like David Bowie's last studio album before he left us "Dark Star", an amazing production.

 

Right now I'm listening to "The Fixx" greatest hits album, gosh this sounds good...

I have never been to Manchester as I am predominantly an East Coast girl, but I do remember video's of the Hacienda night club from  a few years ago. It had ( and maybe still has) cult status here.

You’re welcome! I like the album version better. It’s got these lyrics at the end (I swear David Bowie sang the cameo) 

 

“Maybe if you hang together
You can make the changes in our hearts
And if you hang together, you can change us
Just where should you start?”

 

 This repeats in several songs throughout the album.

 

Ashlee, have fun at the wedding! I wish I could have been there.

The news...  And not Huey Lewis and The News.  LOL  But yesterday I had some off site quiet time and the establishment I was had had on a 70's pop music play list and then a 90's hip hop play list.  It was honestly fun to listen too.  I enjoyed it so much I had a hard time finishing my work.

I recall the experience, when grocery shopping back in like the late 80's and I realized they were playing Jimi Hendrix 3rd Stone from the sun in the store, and I realized then, the music of my youth was now store music, oh no, that only means one thing 😅

 

Today I'm listening to Traffic, and the song "The Dealer"....

      Thank you. Because you like them here are some more. These pieces are to show courage. In the first one I chose pink because I wanted to show she was fighting for love.    Second piece she has a pink wolf. A wolf is suppose to be a vicious animal but when tamed my love it becomes a girl’s best friend.    Last piece I chose blue and red (red is my favorite color) Blue is for male and red is for female. The two are mixed but present together bring about harmony and strength.   I can’t take credit for the picture but I was the one who colored it. Enjoy!    Love   Tessa👩‍🦳
    • jo_g
      That's true, thanks.  I think I'll give them a call, but am hoping it'll be OK to shave sooner rather than later. 😂
    • jo_g
      Great news! Super happy for you.
    • MarcieMarie12
      Hi Jo-g, I will add everyones experience with laser and electrolysis is a bit different. I went through laser without lidocaine,. But for electrolysis I needed it since it took for ever. I did not worry about my body hair, as with HRT it turnedo ut less than most cis girls.   In regards to the not shaving, I was not told that in regards to laser for myself. But I can see they might have a reason for it. From not irritating the skin, to seeing how effective the treatment is. Your technician may also be worried about scarring. But in the end asking them about will tell you more, as they might also be trying to gauge the effectiveness of things.
    • SaraAW
      Naomi, I feel your pain. No matter how many different directions I shave in, I have a permanent very dark shadow. Within a couple of hours, you can use my face like coarse sand paper.  I’m torn between starting laser or electrolysis. Most of my hair is still really dark, with just a few patches of gray.    As for body hair, shaving or even using depilatories leaves me with insane ingrown hairs. I’ve actually started plucking chest hair to help with the GD, but it takes for ever. I might try waxing.    I wish you all luck in the quest for smooth hair free skin.    *hugs*

      A second hand makeup manual that I picked up some time ago suggests that liquids like mascara and liquid foundation are good for about 6 months, while pressed powders and the like should be good for up to 2 years with proper storage (though it bears frequently checking their viability during that time).

      They look great. Well done!

      Gosh Jackie that sounds like a genuine epiphany moment! It is not a bad thing to be able to forgive hurt, this world would be a much better and safer place if others could be as big hearted as you seem to be

    • SaraAW
      Welcome Lexi. I’m only a couple of years older than you and in a similar situation, without a child though.  It can definitely be stressful and worrying at times. But as I begin to learn to listen more to myself and what I feel inside, the better I am feeling.    I’m hoping to see a GT shortly, my GP is researching to help me find someone qualified in the area.    Lots of great people here, lots of information and many relatable stories.    Welcome.    *hugs*
