Simple Minds…and their *Electronic* Revolution…

SimpleMinds.com, their new pic inboxed to me with material ImageProxyWell, SIMPLE MINDS, are back again and not…so simple!

They inboxed me today, alerting me on their new album, new single, and new UK/European 2015 tour…

The new album, entitled BIG MUSIC will be released on November 3, 2014…It is the 16th studio album by Scottish Rock/Pop band, Simple Minds, and their first album of brand new material in 5 years! In the meantime, *Blindfolded* is the first single. More Fall records, falling out… lol (;o)*

Listening to *Blindfolded*, I am quite impressed on the change of style…A long way from their NEW GOLD DREAM days! I have always liked Simple Minds, and also had the opportunity to interview them, talk with Jim Kerr (personally), and have also seen many of their live performances. On one hand, I am very impressed, on the other, somewhat surprised, for this electronic trip. They’ve done it before, in the past, and for sure there will be someone (some Fan) who will not like this *new* direction. I like the uptempo Music of this track, and I also like the technological perspective of the video. They do sound a bit like Depeche Mode… ***Somewhere out there…you’ll never see…***

I wish them the Best of Luck, on this new evolution and…revolution!

Ticket details: I mentioned before that they’ll be embarking on a major UK/European tour, in 2015, touching many cities in Portugal, Spain, France, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and the UK.

There will be a special UK ticket and album bundle with a presale at http://www.simpleminds.com, from 10.00 a.m. Wednesday (September 24). The UK tickets, along with the European tickets will be available, for general release to the public from 10:00 a.m., Friday (September 26).

Here is official video of *Blindfolded*:

Atrocities around the Universe… Where is the Peace?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GLKou8GI2Y

 

My thoughts on a story published by CNN:  http://edition.cnn.com/2014/05/15/world/africa/sudan-christian-woman-apostasy/index.html?sr=fb051614faithsentence1030aVODtopPhoto

This is so sad…I have no words… :'(  So many atrocious acts caused by…mankind.

 

Reading this whole story brought tears, and then I started thinking of the past and making some comparisons…The Christians in the days of Nero, were probably *treated better*, although facing lions…  Now, in these days (modern year 2014!), here are other people–supposedly called *human beings*–who are sentencing other human beings (and this particular case is about a pregnant woman…OMG) to death, to amputation, to being stoned to death, etc., etc…

 

Where is the Love?  where is compassion?  where is respect?  Sudan *high ups* and so called big wheels, YOU make me sick…

 

Sudan is one of the most awful places in this universe for religious status:  you’re either a Muslim or you are in dire danger…

I hope the humanitarian associations around the world will be able to *talk some sense and humanity* into these people…I really do! (but I have my doubts, reading the story…)

Mercy mercy on this poor Lady…and all the others who are suffering.    Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, I am (we are) with You!

The Mystery of Life…by Melody Fox d(*_*)b (aka the Princess of Rock)

Peace in my loft... 2014.3.30Sun 033

The mystery of life…everything seems to be so perfect, everything exactly where it should be!

How?  Who?  Why?

God?  just one almighty?  or various Gods?  I’ve always wondered:   ever since I was a teenager…  I often look at the sky, what perfection!  I was just looking at the silhouette of the moon–and then I decided to write this–and it’s early afternoon. (will put out picture too)  What triggered its positioning?  a clockwork status, a time clock, or what?  Who gave instructions?  or does it just happen? 

 

This is amazing…and it happens every day, with natural synchronization…and it will continue to *happen* and be there until the end of time…  The moon, the stars, the planets, the whole immense galaxy…and mankind. 

 

Whereas, the situation for human beings is different, in a way, yet the same…  There’s a life span for each person:  everyone has a life that folds out in front of them, day by day.  Are we really the masters of our destinies?  When I was in my early teens, I got into thinking that God (or some Great Wizard or a scientific Entity of Light) had a huge book showing the beginning of each person (and the end too), often wondering if I would want to see or know how my life ended.  Would you?  would you want to know?  I don’t think so…  I personally came to the conclusion, a very long time ago, that NO, that would not be a good idea…Can you imagine?  We’d be too scared to live!  and some (or most) would be in total misery… 

Many scientists, experts, etc., think they have the answer…maybe, for some things, but certainly not on the circle of life.  It’s an infinite incognito…  Quite frankly, over the years, I’ve thought of death and how my life will end… Now that I’m older, I wonder even more, and am a little frightened on meeting with Death…we know not what’s on the other side, and if there is one, as a matter of fact.  I’m a little frightened, because I don’t want to be alone, and be immersed in darkness…More than just a *little frightened* actually…quite

Love Peace Music (until the end of time and…beyond)

Boot-shaped Italy…(~_*) by Melody Fox (aka the Princess of Rock)

While I was looking at the statistics page here on my WordPress blog (which I have been using a little more in the past three days or so), and viewing the visitors of countries, I was thinking to myself what a wonderful landscape, looking from above…What really strikes me though, is the shape of Italy (I got visitors from there too, today–at the time of writing, it is April 29, 2014–) which is an amazing Boot!  and it looks exactly like a boot:  a boot-shaped peninsula!  Of course, I knew about it before, but it’s just so interesting, that I looked at it again and again.  And, the boot (Italy) seems to be kicking an island! lol (;o)*  That’s really funny…  just sayin’! 

I wonder if the Italians are proud of that?  I’ve never heard anyone saying anything…

With a shape like that, the Italians should be able to overcome all their problems, especially the political lunatics who seem to run the country (or rather…outrun it!)…Strong, powerful, bold, with principles rooted in those boots.  Instead, its reality is totally different.  Oh well…Good luck in getting that boot to walk over all the cr** that’s going on, and overcome all the negativity…

Image

This is so cute!  lovely green boot!

 

No other song comes to mind, but this one, which is most appropriate, considering the political situation in Italy (one of these days these *boots* are gonna walk all over you…and dump all those sh**y and greedy politicians:

*The Wanderer* by Melody Fox (km©copyright)

*The Wanderer* by Melody Fox (km©copyright)

He came from very far His only companion a wandering star,

The idea was to settle down somewhere,

The big problem, though, was where…

Years of travelling were taking their toll,

Yet this guy still had not set a goal.

He was also silently hoping for the right *One*,

To keep him from always being on the run. 

He came from ever so far, His only companion a lonely star. 

I wonder if he’ll ever find where *You* are…

Time…

Time…
by Melody Fox (km©copyright)

Time is not on our side,

Wish I could hide…

The sadness in people’s lives,

So that they can smile with their eyes,

And look with hope into the skies

Whether they are gray or blue,

As long as each person stays to their dreams true.
