How do you call this sh*t ?

I call it commercial bullsh*t !

Here are some details, so if you are big fun of this performer,
your fan target just asking some money from you to meet with her.

So, just pay to me 400$ and you will get the opportunity to meet me.

Photo meeting, damn it !

I thought that usually bands and performers are doing photo sessions for fan-club members, for fans participated in raffle, etc.

But not in the way like that $$$. On one hand there is nothing bad in such practice, if you want additional $$$ let’s create some entertainment for users, but it immediately crosses the line for you as musician, it is brightly showing that music for you just way to get more cache, not art 😦

Just one note about great music

Recently we have watched one concert show, it is called P•U•L•S•E.

Well, I think it is useless to talk about the music, everyone knows Pink Floyd is Pink Floyd, who is familiar with Pink Floyd.

There is a set of separate movies, that are being shown together with performance, not just light show but movie show.

For example “Shine on Your Crazy Diamond” parallel movie idea,
firstly small boy is shown, which grows to man who is “reached the secret”. There are so many people around, who want to share his glory. Finally there is empty pool with that man alone, now all glory shareholders went to seek another victim. Man is cleaning large pool from previous glory flower petals. So simple scenes, but idea of the song shown clearly.

“Brain Damage” movie, especially first fragments with faces of the politicians and

The lunatic is on the grass
The lunatic is on the grass
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs
Got to keep the loonies on the path
The lunatic is in the hall
The lunatics are in my hall

no comments.

It remains to envy and wonder about authors imagination.

Something invaluable.

Sorry 23 minutes. just 23 minutes.

Unrepeatable passion.

If…

Then.

Tribute.

Originally this song is being supposed as tribute, but I cannot name this piece as a song, it is master piece. Classic. Like many other things from this band.

Lyrics,


Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now theres a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom, blown on the
Steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter, come on you stranger, you legend,
You martyr, and shine!

You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Well you wore out your welcome with random precision, rode on the
Steel breeze.
Come on you raver, you seer of visions, come on you painter, you piper,
You prisoner, and shine!

But lyrics, lyrics is just a part (just a smaaal part). When song starts and continues, the one thought comes in mind, “fantastic !!! music is fantastic!!!  waiting for lyrics, let’s hope they will not disturb music harmony”.

Because music is great. But it is not easy to notice when it starts “Remember when you were young..”.  Great peace, how could people create things like that ? That’s a question, I’ve used to ask different times, when I listen Pink Floyd music.

Ok, to be more precise, it is about concert versions (Pulse or The Delicate Sound of Thunder). Originally, song is from “Wish you were here” album, title of the album is also a tribute. Tribute to Syd Barrett (founder or co-founder of the band). I prefer Gilmour Waters Wright art more (it is closest to me). Pink Floyd music is great and Barrett is a part of it. Part of band that created diverse and deep music, that should stay for ages.

One negative thing, there were no any opportunity to visit their concerts in Golden years. So, DVD’s and other videos are alive.

The way to Helsinki ?

Finally, finally.

Today Latvian Pasts (Latvian Mail) delivered one letter for me. I found this thing inside
