OK. I’m a child of the fifties, but I grew up through the sixties, seventies and eighties, finally getting married on the cusp of the nineties, but I’ve never been one to enjoy karaoke. All of my musical icons are from the sixties (the Beatles), seventies (Led Zeppelin), eighties (Eurythmics),… Continue reading
I loved his first video ‘Gangnam Style’ as well.
There’s nothing deep or thought provoking about either of these videos. They’re just good, laugh out loud FUN!
I, for one, love the moments when I can just be silly or watch someone else be silly and get a… Continue reading
Over the past few weeks, there has been increasingly negative, rather offensive media coverage of Justin Bieber. Although it shows him in a distinctly negative light, I couldn’t help wondering how much of this coverage was being engineered by his public relations team.

Well, my daughter Erin and her boyfriend decided to invest in VERY expensive tickets to the week-long Shambhala music festival in British Columbia this week and just returned home yesterday.
This festival has become so popular, but it’s definitely… Continue reading
At points throughout these ceremonies I sang, laughed – and cried.
I sang when music that is so familiar and that I have so loved could be heard interspersed among the poetry, prose and drama of the opening ceremonies. Music reverberated from such artists as the London Symphonic Orchestra conducted… Continue reading
I’ve always loved Adele, since the first time I saw her perform on ‘Ugly Betty’ of all places, my favorite show at the time. I had no idea she was only 19 at the time. What a shock.
