Heaven Can Wait

joe jackson - breaking us in two

This song was very important to me once and one of my top 10 most-played vinyl LPs. Joe Jackson was very much against the early MTV video movement. I'm guessing that this is where he throws in the towel.

Kelly Corsino

Some time ago I met my dear friend Kelly Corsino...she has an amazing voice and has been singing in the industry for awhile now...I was delighted to see she is doing some very cool PSA spots on very important issues. I love this kind of thing...people doing something extra special..beyond themselves. So wonderful, and wanted to share her lovely voice...

I was missing Manic

Riding my bike...

green and dumb - roger clyne

Daisies stand up on their tip-toes Clouds tumble over themselves in the sky And all the pretty horses come runnin’ to her And even the dust devils pray That they'll catch her eye I haunt her house from the outside I watch her bake cornbread and talk on the phone And the wireless on the inside plays a sad sweet song A mute moonlit statue am I, she waltzes alone But baby, baby, I could call you baby If I weren’t so empty in the head and tied up in the tongue And baby, baby, I could call you baby If I weren’t so green and dumb The wind ain’t stopped blowin’ since morning It’s got me froze up on the inside And I could get warm in the bunk house And thaw out on coffee and bread But baby, baby, I could call you baby If I weren’t so empty in the head and tied up in the tongue But baby, baby, I could call you baby If I weren’t so green and dumb I need your government warning like I need a hole in my head Well, I won’t shoot your coyotes And I won’t burn your weeds Your paycheck won’t fill up this hollow It won't dull all the aching But baby, baby, I could call you baby If I weren’t so empty in the head and tied up in the tongue But baby, baby, I could call you baby If I weren’t so green & dumb If I weren’t so green & dumb If I weren’t so green & dumb If I weren’t so green & dumb ****************************** Sorry for my long absence. I've been trying to find a good video clip of Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, my favourite band for a couple of years now, but being an indie band it's hard to find a video with clean sound and decent visuals! This song is awesome with the whole band, but here it is with just Roger. Enjoy!

i ♥ joni mitchell...i hope you do too...

sleeps with the fishes

Soon I'll be sleeping and my party will be over. I used to finish my parties with "Good Night" from the Beatles as António Sérgio used to do in a bar in 80's. This time I present you another piece that only AS could let me hear. It is "After The Call" by Pieter Nooten and Michael Brook from 1987 album "Sleeps with the Fishes".

Enjoy! Good night! Sleep tight! :-)

... it's my party ...

... and I like this a lot and I don't care. :p

Things which happen out of time are not subjected to consensus they stay deep down while the remainder lose. Packaged knowledges serves the present status, Stood apart and embargoed by the majority. If out of time and present time could be related and assimilated we wouldn't need cosmotic trips. Theories would be noticed but intelligence restricts human autonomy.

keep rock and rolling ...

in cold war ending spirit

Pass the Kings Ketchup Please :D

Happy Birthday Peras!

Lavender Moon for a Birthday King

This is my favourite song by my favourite band Los Lobos. They are from East LA and I have been following them since 1985. They are so, so good and David Hidalgo is so sensitive and talented. This is my favourite song by them and I made a painting to this song and will find and show on another occasion. I post this for the March Fish I know you will like this song ;)

check check check

party is open :-)

the star of the sea

Numa noite em que o céu tinha um brilho mais forte .. e em que o sono parecia disposto a não vir .. fui estender-me na praia sozinho ao relento .. e ali longe do tempo acabei por dormir . . Acordei com o toque suave de um beijo .. e uma cara sardenta encheu-me o olhar .. ainda meio a sonhar perguntei-lhe quem era .. ela riu-se e disse baixinho: estrela do mar . . Sou a estrela do mar .. só a ele obedeço, só ele me conhece .. só ele sabe quem sou no princípio e no fim .. só a ele sou fiel e é ele quem me protege .. quando alguém quer à força .. ser dono de mim . . Não sei se era maior o desejo ou o espanto .. mas sei que por instantes deixei de pensar .. uma chama invisível incendiou-me o peito .. qualquer coisa impossível fez-me acreditar . . Em silêncio trocámos segredos e abraços .. inscrevemos no espaço um novo alfabeto .. já passaram mil anos sobre o nosso encontro .. mas mil anos são pouco ou nada para a estrela do mar
It was a night with a brighter sky .. and sleep seemed unwilling to come .. I dwell on the beach alone under the sky .. and there far from the time I ended up sleeping . . I woke up with the soft touch of a kiss .. and a freckled face filled my sight .. still half dreaming I asked her who she was .. and she laughed and said quietly .. I'm the sea star . . I'm the sea star .. I just obey the sea .. only he knows me .. only he knows who I am .. in the beginning and in the end .. I am loyal only to him .. and he is who protects me .. when someone wants to own me by force . . I don't know if it was bigger my desire or my amazement .. but I know that for a moment I stopped thinking .. and an invisible flame burned my chest .. something impossible made me believe . . In silence we shared secrets and hugs .. and we signed up in space a new alphabet .. One thousand years have passed since our meeting .. But one thousand years are little or nothing to the Sea Star . . I'm the sea star...
