Shigeto: Lineage

Lineage Back Cover

Lineage Back CoverThe front cover includes a photo of Shigeto’s great grandfather’s house from 1916 in Hiroshima, Japan. The back cover includes a photo of his great grandfather, Shigeto Ohmura, at the Amache Internment Camp in Grenada, Colorado after his family was transfered from Tule Lake Internment Camp. Following the attack on Pearl Harbor and the subsequent declaration of war against Japan many Americans believed that the Japanese-Americans were spies or traitors. Thus, why Shigeto’s grandfather and other family members ended up in these camps. Layout, text and additional design created by Michael Cina.

The Minstrel Boy

I already really like this song – it’s one of the most rousing battle songs ever written – so it was a pleasure to hear it played during the end credits of Black Hawk Down (2001). This particular arrangement is one of my favorites.

Perfect Day

A perfect day begins with look at yourself.

Perfect Day – Lou Reed (1972)

Just A Perfect Day,
Drink Sangria In The Park,
And Then Later, When It Gets Dark,
We Go Home.
Just A Perfect Day,
Feed Animals In The Zoo
Then Later, A Movie, Too,
And Then Home.

Oh It’s Such A Perfect Day,
I’m Glad I Spent It With You.
Oh Such A Perfect Day,
You Just Keep Me Hanging On,
You Just Keep Me Hanging On.

Just A Perfect Day,
Problems All Left Alone,
Weekenders On Our Own.
It’s Such Fun.
Just A Perfect Day,
You Made Me Forget Myself.
I Thought I Was Someone Else,
Someone Good.

Oh It’s Such A Perfect Day,
I’m Glad I Spent It With You.
Oh Such A Perfect Day,
You Just Keep Me Hanging On,
You Just Keep Me Hanging On.

You’re Going To Reap Just What You Sow,
You’re Going To Reap Just What You Sow,
You’re Going To Reap Just What You Sow,
You’re Going To Reap Just What You Sow…

July in Argentina: The need for and nature sounds

Avenida 9 de Julio - Buenos Aires, Argentina


Samuel Barber – Adagio for Strings

Upload  for iffing

In Argentina, the second half has been very cold.
This means that I have held in the warmth of my home. There one can do many things. But the peace inevitably leads to reflection. In the important things in life.

Today I received a beautiful video of barryr666.
Finish expressing my mood.

The video corresponds to Adagio for Strings by Samuel Barber.
A sublime piece of compistor born in Pennsylvania in 1910 and fully implemented by the London Symphony Orchestra.

Work may fill us with melancholy feelings. Today I filled me with joy and strength to contemplate.

Let them enjoy it and serve.
