I’m in a weird mood. I’m having fun with it. It’s probably vibrations of joy and contemplation from the recent Fleetwood Mac concert I attended. It takes me a while to process everything I took in that night. I’m also a bit stingy about sharing what I experienced. (I’ll work on that.) Here’s a gem: After singing Gold Dust Woman, Stevie Nicks swirled into gold dust and faded to black. The FX was so ingenious, I was compelled to turn and ask the nearest person, “Did you see that?!” 😆
I caught up on a few of my TV shows. I can’t wait for season 6 of Grace and Frankie to begin (next year.) I had a blast binge-watching it. I started over with Westworld. Season 3 airs soon, and I need at least one more viewing first. The show is lush with depth and detail. I’m learning so much about music from the soundtrack. When I heard the instrumental cover of Nirvana’s Heart-Shaped Box by Ramin Djawadi, I gasped from being smacked by genius. (It’s on Tidal.)
Now I need Amy Lee to record this song. Just her and a magnificent grand piano of her choosing under a foggy spotlight. And when you think it can’t get any better, enter Beyoncè singing the chorus and moving however the music takes her. Their haunting harmonies on the next verse hold us hostage until Jay Z walks in and starts freestyling, and the beat surfaces and swells.
Freeze on a 360° image that slowly pans around, revealing all three artists in an intense moment of complete release. Then resume at normal speed as they all meld into a beautiful, painful explosion of music so powerful it moves the world. And finally, cut to me in the ER, and a doctor is yelling, clear! Because my heart would explode like a heart-shaped box. Heh. Weird mood, indeed. 🙃
We got a fair amount of snow and some freezing rain on top. It was knee-high on my balcony, yesterday. Today it’s melting away, resulting in several icicles forming about a foot in front of (and above) the door. The temptation to jump up and slap them away is more significant than I’m willing to admit this far into my forties. Wait. Dammit, ego! Lay by your bowl! I’d do it if not for the icy landing zone. (I’m newly considerate of my hips years old.) I’m off to band practice. 💜✌🏽
