Music, pop and MJ

A playlist of mine.

Photos by Jane Bown of Bjork, Bono (U2), John Lennon and Paul Mc Cartney (the Beatles), Liza Minnelli, Mick Jagger (the Rolling Stones), PJ Harvey and Sinead O’Connor.

– The Observer Music Monthly.

– John Lennon and the film Nowhere Boy. Please see also the categories at the end of the text.

Lennon. A page in the website of Pike Murdy about John Lennon.

26.12.09 – The “Godfather of Soul”. The Observer and James Brown. The very famous soul singer was laid to rest and there were at the ceremony – as I was informed by the online version of the Sunday newspaper – the famous rapper MC Hammer and the Rev Jesse Jackson. Other tags and categories at the end of this text or you may vote Brown’s or MC Hammer’s songs above.

– James Brown and a website, Kikachannel.tv – a video. I hope all is true.

Michael Jackson and… For a text referring to Brown, Chaka Khan and Reverend Al Sharpton, please click, instead, on the words “soul singer” in the next lines to go to an article by BBC News. Tim Neilson reported for this television service in a video with Michael Jackson and more. Harlem and the Apollo Theater.

James Brown and tourism. Augusta, Georgia, James Brown and tourism.

01.12.2008 I would like to remember here in this blog the soul singer James Brown who died on Christmas Day on 2006. The “Godfather of Soul” was 73 and made his debut at a venue. Moreover, the director Spike Lee would have thought of making a film about him and Brown would have approved the use of his own music on the soundtrack. The film should be directed in this year and the project should be overseen by the Oscar-winning producer of A beautiful Mind Brian Grazer.

There’s Nothin’ by the singer Sean Kingston featuring The DEY and Juelz Santana

Rap in French by another singer, Big Aly, and there is an “advertising” for an auto.

Soon as I get Home by Bobby Valentino (the sound is not very good).

Another playlist of mine with an empire and the sun, a former member of a boy band, a disco music star, British singers and “chatting”.

Lake Baikal in Russia.

Beyoncé and six Grammys. Well, what do you think of Beyoncé’s winning six Grammys? Four of them for the Song of the Year, Best R&B Song and Best Female R&B Vocal Performance  – Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) – and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for Halo…

R&B. Or do you like At Last or I am… Sasha Fierce and and are they worth the Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance or the Best Contemporary R&B Album? A video in an article by Sam Jones and Simone Whey, photos and these awards and UK charts.

Taylor Swift. Her single White Horse, female country vocal and country song.

Destiny’s Child and London. And what about Beyoncé Knowles’ group, the Destiny’s Child, or London’s Notting Hill Carnival? And there also should be a “bad advice” (“Though we shouldn’t forget that she also collected a hefty fee to perform for Colonel Gaddafi’s son on New Year’s Eve, perhaps the result of bad advice.”). This sentence is quoted from an article by The Guardian’s Music Blog by Rosie Swash.

Notting Hill carnival and Major Lazer. Diplo and Switch (aka Major Lazer) and the Notting Hill carnival (a video). Please do not see necessarily who is the sponsor…

31.01.10 – Grammy Awards. The Grammys on Sunday, January 31, from 8 pm on CBS.

Saint Petersburg. One of the “worst hotel” in Saint Petersburg? I would not travel to Russia… They should be helping Iran in building nuclear sites.

21.01.09 – Guantanamo and Obama. Guantanamo’s prison next to be closed? Easy or not? This is an interview by the Bbc to an ex-guard and a former prisoner and this is something about an Obama’s promise. He is trying to suspend the military trials related to the Cuban prison for 120 days.

– A military cartoon by a certain Smeltzer about hair and André Agassi, Bruce Willis, Michael Jordan and more. This military branch…

Barroso. The president of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso, is convinced of the necessity of  “multilateral responses to global challenges, from the financial and economic crises to peace and security, including in the Middle East, development challenges, and of course the defining struggle of our generation: to stop and reverse climate change”. The Usa, the E.U. and other countries like Russia, China, India and so on… Multilateral responses…

Youth Ball. Obama’s feast and his day have also meant the Youth Inaugural Ball with the singer Kanye West, a band, the actress Demi Moore and the actor Tobey Maguire. Moreover, there were also the rocker Kid Rock, R&B singer Usher and the presenters Sway and Rosario Dawson.

Inaugural: music, a choice and slaves. Obama‘s final steps to his journey to the White House mean music as well as we can hear in this Euronews’ report. And the new president of the United States does not plan to follow the choice between security and American ideals, as the Washington Post and the Guardian websites write. The British newspaper refers also to slavery and lets Obama become less “saviour” to me.

calogeromira.wordpress.come-mail

No news about Michael Jackson? Here there is a video of They Don’t Care About Us.

Sicily. The rustic farmhouse Galassia in Patti Marina, not very far from Messina, in Sicily. I have read about this place in the Guardian Cottages & Villas at Cottageselection.co.uk.

Ibiza, Bali and snorkelling. How are Ibiza, the White Isle and the Rough Guide to this town? And Indonesia, Bali and the island of Gili Trawangan? Maybe it should not be very far from Lombok and the Padang area of Sumatra and, so far as I know, snorkelling may be practiced there.

The Observer. And have you ever been to the bungalows of the Dream Village or have you read this article in the Observer by Iain Stewart?  In the first case I haven’t…

Music. A playlist of mine.

Middle East. Have you ever been to the Medina in Saudi Arabia and its fez? Here a photo and another one or a third one about a fez (I hope – and am sure – the author was not wrong!).

Spain. Here also a blog (O Sanxirole) in Spanish by Carlos with the texts, “Y con esta, van doscientas” and “Las cinco de la tarde“. Furthermore, another blog  is the chronicles by a man, Dan – and here one of his pages. Another blog in Spanish is Bostezando cuerpecitos.

A visit to Sicily and oranges. The following photos were taken in Sicily in Agrigento (one of its temples and another one), Palermo (maybe the Cathedral and the Palatine Chapel – photo one and two), Monreale (photo one and two), the Dome , the Greek Theatre and a pushcart with oranges in Syracuse or the San Domenico Church in Noto.

– A Brazilian-Italian friar, brother Sidival Fila. And furthermore, the Italian singer Alessandra Celletti. Brazil, Canoa Quebrada, tourism and a blog.

The visit in Noto also includes an image of the San Nicolò Church and a view with some palms. In the very East of Sicily there is also a point of view of Ragusa and completely on the other side of Sicily – Western side near Trapani – a temple in Selinunte,  another one in Segesta and salt mills in Mozia. Besides, in Sicily there is always an occasion to see a Madonna and there are also other Sicilian photos, but… another time.

Indonesia… Which fruits are these?!

15.08.09 – Competitions. Deadline is Saturday, August 15… Have you already taken part to the Europe-wide photo competition about safety and health among Europe’s citizens? An on-line public vote will follow and, then, there will be a winner and three further prizes assigned by a jury…

31.07.09 – “European” photos. Do you like this photo or this one?  The author took part to a photo competition by the PES Group (Party of the European Socialists), which includes the most important European centre-right movements and parties.

You may apply for another photo competition with the deadline fixed for the 31st July. Anyway, you have to be of an age between 11 and 25.

– A European project about artists.

Piana degli Albanesi. Trip Advisor, Stephen Bowdon from Cheshire and Sant’Agata Agriturismo in Piana degli Albanesi, near Palermo. The travel agency Open Sicily and this farmhouse in Piana degli Alabensi for one week off-peak (448 pounds or 560 euros) and peak (504 pounds or 630 euros).

Singing. A music playlist of mine.

Tasting and enjoying Italian food. 25 Italian restaurant words from Rd.com and a playlist of mine about the Reader’s Digest.

Mediterranean diet and diabetes. Do you follow the Mediterranean diet or do you know anyone who’s diagnosed with type 2 diabetes? And have you read this article in the Reader’s Digest by Janis Graham?

Mediterranean eating. Eating plans and the Mediterranean plan for the Guardian Eat Right by the Observer. Yoghurt with fruit and nuts, salmon with roast vegetables, pasta salad and fruit and crackers and hummus…

Madagascar and Africa. The website of Madagascar National Tourism Board. South Africa for 15 nights with the supplier Riviera Travel for 1499 pounds and the Nile for seven nights from 649 pounds with another supplier, Discover Egypt.

Australia and Oceania. Australia and tourism.

Orange and lemon. Do you like blood orange or lemon juices and taroc? And essential oils? And where are they from? From Termini Imerese in Sicily or…?

Leona Lewis. The video of Leona Lewis’ I Got You and a playlist of mine about this singer.

This video is popular in the UK and Spain and you may find something about these two countries below.

I have found it through Plurk. Thanks to this social network.

Internet and Asian Britain. My profiles in PlurkI Like, Bebo, Friendfeed, Twitter and Facebook. And do you listen to BBC Asian Network (videos)?

No sound for Asian Britain? Save the BBC Asian Network! From a blog and a deejay:

Trust has received 1000 complaints to keep Asian Network open. This is ridiculous. The station is key to the Asian music scene.  Seems apathy has reared its ugly head in regards to Save BBC Asian Network. Come on everyone, we can do better than 1000 complaints. EMAIL srconsultation@bbc.co.uk NOW to Save BBC Asian Network. Just be honest. Keep it simple or state your reasons for not closing it down.

22.11.09 – Thailand. Have you ever travelled to Thailand and Bangkok? Would you like to travel there? Please see below as well.

Mediterranean countries for “The Observer” and more

Italian… “Agriturismi” in Italy? Here there is an article by The Observer about Castellabate, the Cilento national park not very far from Naples, fried fresh anchovies with bread, olives and tomatoes and linguine with baby squid and broad beans. Should I write more about “agriturismi”? I am really addressing this question to tourists, and not to tourist operators…

Cancun, Mexico, Central America and Asia. Have you ever been to Cancun in Mexico or Thailand? And maybe from Sweden? Which are the flights? And where have you been?

Sitges. September in Spain from the UK? In Sitges? Do you know salsa music? Or maybe do you like to eat in tapas restaurants?

Again Italy. Do you like whales or dolphins in the Ligurian Sea or maybe Basilicata with southern Apennines and “bread from bakeries in Matera, wine from Aglianico and cheese from the mountains”? And do you like this list by The Observer?

An island. Sardinia‘s Supramonte Mountains and plateau, Sorgente Su Gologone and the Lanaittu Valley or a Nuraghic village. Any help needed by the Association for Tourist Services, Culture and Environment in Orgosolo or the Agrituristica Guthiddai? Would you like to taste boiled sheep, roasted pork, bread and salami or cheese, local wine and olive oil?

Going on with food, would you feel like eating almonds, carob, olive, pistachio and walnut trees? In Can Marti – Ibiza, Spain, with Swiss owners… Furthermore there is “homemade bread with local jam and honey”…

Spain and France. And what about Cortes de la Frontera in Spain and a lot of place in France like Béziers, the Languedoc, the Canal du Midi and Carcassonne? Or the vineyards of Minervois, Ventenac and the Cathar castle at Lastours? A wind farm there…

Burgundy and gay naturism. A gay naturist retreat in Burgundy by Citronniers with a price of 80 euros per night per person with a 3-course evening meal, full English breakfast, lunch and all drinks included.

– Morris’ blog about late breaking gays.

Marche. And would you like mountains’ cycling holidays in Alpujarras, Spain, as the second page of the article offers? Or an agriturismo in Le Marche, Italy? Here more information…

Cycling and eating. Do you know the village of Bérchules and the Alpujarras? And the Sierra Nevada above Granada and the Mulhacén in Spain? Do you like mountains’ cycling and picnicking? You should pay 630 euros a week.

Farming. A country house and organically run farm in Le Marche, Italy… What? A five-course evening meal?! Incredible… And “heating is solar-powered and there’s a wood-fired stove fuelled by coppicing from the farm woods”. Plus truffle-hunting not very far from Rimini, Urbino and Ancona. Doubles from €110 including breakfast.

Ssese’s Islands. Do you know where the tropical Ssese’s Islands are? If you would like to know it, please see this reportage by Richard Eilers for The Observer… Sands, forest walks, a lake, fried tilapia, above all the rapids and Bob Marley… And, moreover, as for names, Kampala, the MS Kalangala from Entebbe to Bugala, Lutoboka, Kibale Forest national park and the Bassese and, as for animals, gorillas and chimpanzees…

The Nile. And do you know what mzungu means, who Idi Amin is and where Jinja and the Bujagali Falls are? Clues for my question are the Nile and the lakes Nyinambuga and Victoria… Last, but not least, have you ever been to the Ssese Islands Beach Hotel, the Haven, the Ndali Lodge and to the Gately on Nile? Have you ever met South Africans or Americans?

Aircraft. You can fly to Entebbe from Brussels with Brussels Airlines on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 10.40 to 19.35; from Amsterdam and from London Heathrow to Entebbe  with KLM. Among the other national parks in Uganda there would be the Bwindi Impenetrable national park in the south-west, Murchison Falls and Queen Elizabeth national parks and “the Foreign Office advises against travel to the Karamoja region, in the north-east”.

Difficult situation for Less tourists in Ireland with visitors from Britain down by 22.8 per cent or from other parts of Europe by 20 per cent. Sad situation, but let’s hope…

Southern Italy. What follows is not an ad and I know my readers should be very intelligent. So I add this link to a project for 122 two and three bed villas and townhouses near Sciacca, Sicily, Italy.

Northern and Central Italy. Do you like Castel Fidardo, near Ancona? And Vicobarone Ziano Piacentino, near Piacenza in Emilia Romagna?
