Swirling. We just made a tree. Between the lofi and the wifi, off beyond us. Close by, just in the other room. Every swipe, type, space, "ENTER" - in fact, every parenthetical "DELETE" -Shift- '"'backspace backspace backspace'"' had made a thing come into being. And when you stood up and walked into the next room they were there already - several fully-leaved, potted trees packaged nursery-style and ten feet tall, already bearing honeydew-colored and honeydew-sized, teardrop-shaped and pleasantly heft fruits.

One of my FAVORITE Fireflight rock albums, the EPIC 2012 record "NOW" with lots of great songs, including "Stay Close"
Lead singer Dawn Michele is a gem, and IMO the best rock singer on record of the past decade in the selected genre (and the general rock genre as well!) - a too often overlooked band!
Check Fireflight out today!...
Fireflight - Unbreakable album
Excellent set of songs from this great group with lead singer Dawn Michele! Love it! Fireflight #music

"Lady of Light" I say (I.E. the real Galadriel)! And so, before we move on to the next fantastic concert (Best Kept Secret Festival) of Summer 2017, we briefly revisit Bergenfest for the post-appearance Tweets, which were awesome - Starting with AURORA herself, the "Viking princess or old wizard?" She assures us "You will know, in the next episode." [ 614 more words ]

Thank you Miley for promoting LOVE
Miley Cyrus performed a short but significant concert for Pride Day 2017 June 11th setting Summer on course for youth, representation, activism, pride and acceptance during these times of political hatred, rivarly and cultural confusion. The Happy Hippie exhibited again how amazingly comfortable she is on stage and in her own skin, how vocally professional she is, singing perfectly and without a hitch. [ 866 more words ]
Shoegazing MY BLOODY VALENTINE 1991 & Ringo Deathstarr 2017 It’s ALL Good “…Under The Sun.”
Read iconiclight's "critique of the critics"
"I guess what makes the biggest difference when trying to juxtapose an old sound with a new sound, and what WINS the day is, that Ringo Deathstarr is MORE CURRENT (Pure Mood, 2015!), which My Bloody Valentine could’ve been by just releasing a record every couple of years which they just refused to do (or could not do for whatever reason) fo...r two decades! I can’t even imagine that MBV are even still “together” really, and it’s clear that the individual members mostly just abandoned MBV and engaged in other projects after ’91 anyway. IT WAS 22 years between Loveless and their most recent album MBV (2013). Naturally, there’s much to be said for having made such an impact (in retrospect) that a new album is “anxiously awaited” for 22 years! So, no doubt, MBV deserves quasi-legendary status. Nevertheless, in regards to RDS, my biggest argument for rejecting the unfair criticisms of Ringo Deathstarr vs. My Bloody Valentine is for the same reason I still cringe when I read snarky comments about the legendary Jeff Lynne of ELO. Okay so he’s “unforgivably Beatlesque” … well he’s also a brilliant composer and producer. LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED! It’s all good. Just enjoy!"
