Won, there is a song that I do not know the name or the artist, but I would like to know both. Maybe you know or can find it. It has this wierd yell and the words are something about the land of Ice and snow, I think. ;)

With that description, I am sure it will be a challenge, unless you already know the song. ;)

Hi Jennie Rae and Deanie!

Deanie, what is the genre, or what sort of melody does the song have?

Btw, a good tip to find songs:
Go to google and type the wors lyrics and then some of the lyrics you caught from the song. It usually gives you the song you’re looking for ;) I’ve used this method countless times and worked for me almost, if not every, time. Sometimes if the lyrics are very common you need to try to input some more lyrics, or try some of the different results, but Google usually works really well to find songs :) Also, it helps to do a search for song and wherever you heard it (a movie, a popular show, etc). Hope this is useful in the future! ;D

Felipe, Yes! That is the song. The beat is really what caught me, but I did not know how to describe it other than galloping, I suppose it is more of a fast canter. ;)

Thank you. I have found very old songs through Google before, but nothing newer than the 1950’s. And never with a video on YouTube. ;)

I was trying to find Bill Cosby’s “Why is There Air?” bit from one of his very old albums. I did not find that one, but I did find the whole “Noah” act (audio only). My parents had those albums, but I have no idea what happened to them. ;)

I think I need to eat and I know I need to run a load of laundry and pay some bills. ;)

Bbl, if bill paying doesn’t leave me unfit for human company. ;)

Glad I was of help, Deanie! ;) Led Zeppelin is amazing ;D

Before I go, I have a little something to share with you all, if you’re interested and have some time to spare. I’m an eccentric, especially when it comes to music, and I like many different things. One of the albums I grew up listening, thanks to my mom :-D is Rick Wakeman’s Journey to the Center of the Earth. Rick Wakeman is an amazing keyboard player who was in the band Yes. Now, I’m not completely sure I’m correct, but I would call this Rick’s interpretation, or his soundtrack, to the book by Jules Verne. Anyways, it an incredible 70s orchestral composition with rock flare, complete with choir singers and even parts narrated. I would call it a full blown opera. The entire thing is quite long; it’s a full album. But I’m just putting it on here because I really like it and wanted to share it with y’all. A lot of people won’t care for it and that’s perfectly fine ;) You can say so too :-P LOL! Anyways, here is the entire thing (in 5 parts) for your listening pleasure:
Part 1 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcUgVY-Jq-8
Part 2 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKxT4I_jhuA
Part 3 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdRa1ysZMZg
Part 4 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfAcppMAHPk
Part 5 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGeBHy2fyaM

Now I bid you all goodnight and may you enjoy a deep, peaceful slumber! :-)

BBT!

Hello all! Just passing through on my way to bed.

I ended up going to Foxwoods (casino, in Connecticut) with my dad tonight. I broke even, so I consider that a successful trip, especially since I had enough points on my card for a free dinner. :)

I wanted to just crawl into bed when I got home, but the club is open…ugh, they must be trying to open on Thursdays for the summer. They did this last year too, though it didn’t last too long; I hope it goes away just as quickly this year. They should be closing any minute; I’m pretty sure 1am is the city’s rule on a weeknight…at least, that’s what I’m hoping. I’m going to get into bed and even if they don’t close, hope that I’m tired enough to fall asleep anyway.

Talk to you tomorrow. Good night!

Good night, Castle buddies… I’m back from my meeting, which was great even though I felt barely conscious for it. It’s a very good thing the DS drove me there and back. sigh These meds may not do too much for the pain but they sure do make me SLEEPY.

I know I had stuff to say but I can’t think of a single one, so I will just hope everyone had a good day and that I am more clear tomorrow.:) Thanks for all the healing spells! I do think they’re working.

XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOX

Hey, Guys.
I wrote an entire post, but it was eaten by Microsoft Word. Oh, how I hate Word…
Okay, quickly, let’s see if I remember anything…

Wolfie, I was really surprised to hear that you’re heading home so quickly. Enjoy your few days off. Now you’ll be able to see HBP in the theaters with your family! Yay!
(And I found it extremely cool that part of your family were gypsies way back when.)

Exactly, Molly! I actually find them interesting/amusing, too. And I know what you mean! Jo’s story and plot are constantly trying to find a spot in MY story – I can’t get them out of my head to write properly!
(I’m also very aware of my use of “that” now, too.)

Oh, heck yes, Deanie Figg…it has a nice ring to it.
And that Zeppelin song is brilliant. Good catch, *Felipe**!

…which brings me to: Felipe, that concert sounds great. I think your mom – or whole family – would love it. I know how much you love that band. Good idea.

Aargh! I know there was so much more. Curses!
Oh well, it’s 2:30 AM, so I really ought to go.
Goodnight – morning – all!

We are very very tired. My daughter was thrilled with the show but after it was over wanted to know why we took her on a school night. She could hardly stay awake to get home and get into bed. I understand the theatre was trying to fill the theatre on a weeknight by giving children’s tickets free with an adult ticket. They started the show a half hour early. I’m sure it was rough on all the kids.

I’m sure I will have much more to say later but now I have to go get cleaned up, take my daughter to school, go to the chiropractor and to the hospital for my subcommittee meeting. I should be back before lunchtime.

It’s also my youngest brother’s birthday today too. Seems like I remember this from last year. Lol

Felipe, Is this concert on Sunday? Perhaps you could make it a “date” for just you and your Mom?

I know that most mothers enjoy such things with their grown children. I suppose that it is usually after the child has moved out, though. ;)

Good morning Leaky friends.

I was thinking this morning about DH. I still feel rather frustrated with it.

For instance, had Hermione placed the beaded-bag spell on Harry’s backpack or Hagrid have given him the bag with the same spell before his birthday, Harry might not have lost his Firebolt or Hedwig. I realize it was a device for JKR to strip Harry of all of his magical devices, but still. . .

I was also thinking about “the trace”. It seems to me that this is a simple name that could have been introduced earlier in the series.

And lastly, I don’t know why Hermione was suddenly made to be so stupid. This is the girl who had “Hogwars, a History” memorized. Was there nothing in there about RR’s diadem? She knew that Harry was seeking objects belonging to the Founders. She didn’t even recognize the term when XLovegood mentioned it. Why didn’t she know about this? She knows everything!

Sorry Just ranting.

Rhiannon Maybe Hermione was afraid that she would be forced to move to Ravenclaw House, so she made a point not to know about Rowena. In OotP she does admit that the Sorting Hat considered putting her there.

Harry would not have made any effort to learn about Salazar Slytherin, but the knowledge that was mostly forced on him. ;)

Then, Rowena pretended that she still had the diadem until she died. It was found to be missing after her death. Her daughter never told anyone except TR and Harry the truth about it.

So the most Hermione could have learned about it was that it had been missing for centuries. no one even knew for sure when it disappeared.

Remember hermione believed in books and history. It was missing since well before TRs birth and subsequent years at Hogwarts, so to Hermione, it was not involved.

That is just another function of her closed-mindedness. ;)

At the end of HBP, why did Seamus’ mother need to find a bed in Hogsmead? Couldn’t she have gone home or to the Leaky Cauldron or some other town and just apparate in on the morning of the funeral?

We know that it is possible to apparate into and out of Hogsmead. The school could have sent the thestral drawn coaches to collect people and save them the walk up to the school in their somber dress robes. ;)

Deanie, the concert is in around two weeks (Friday May 29th). I’m gonna go ahead and buy the 4 tickets anyways.

Rhi and Deanie, regarding Hermione, think that she wasn’t on top of her game during DH. The stress, Ron, being on the run, etc.

Then about Seamus’s mom, maybe she wanted to be closer to her son?

As my daughter came home with the news of knowing she made an A on her math test yesterday we used an impromtu celebratory treat as an excuse to leave home after her father came in from work. She wanted to know why I was dressed up and I told her since she was wearing a dress (from her lunch out with the principal) that I thought I would wear a dress as well.

We managed to get to downtown Memphis before she revolted and demanded we tell her where we were going. When we wouldn’t tell her she decided we were headed to the Orpheum to see FIDDLER ON THE ROOF. We arrived in time for her to have her face painted and to wander the lobby, scarfing down candy, etc.

I won’t go into a long winded review. It was FIDDLER ON THE ROOF and Topol was the star. The music is lovely and sentimental.

The cast was competent and talented but not magnificent. I was hoping for glorious but the show road on the shoulders of the lovely familiar music and on the back of Topol.

If my life depended on it I could not hum or even recognize a song from THE COLOR PURPLE I saw last month but I can say that cast was magnificent, glorious and supremely talented but it is NOT my favorite show. FIDDLER ON THE ROOF is an emotional favorite for me but I have seen better individual performances in most of the roles in other productions.

Strangely enough, my acid test of quality of one character is for a small role, a young Russian who sings a long wailing note in the pub in TO LIFE ! TO LIFE! LA CHIAM!!!. The best singer I have ever heard perform that small piece was a student in a high school production 30 years ago. I have never heard an adult actor come close to meeting the standard set by that teenage boy.

The actress who played Grandmother Tzeitel in this production was excellent.

At any rate the performance was enjoyable and we were glad we attended. Anything I say is nitpicking detail.

I will be standing up to watch it tonight. There will be no seats for the ushers. Maybe I will have more incite after tonight. I was spending a lot of time watching my daughter’s reactions.
