Weekend Music: Imagine

I was gonna wax eloquent about Queen and other things today. Thank your lucky stars I decided not to inflict that on you, and enjoy the video.

Have a good weekend, and rest assured there’s more to come.

Always more to come with this blog.

Deep thought: Before a thing that hasn’t existed ever before can become real, someone must imagine it. That’s the first step.

Now clap your hands if you believe in fairies.

Hand-clapping on the thread is an approved method of interaction today.

Also good: Finger-snapping, I’ll take finger-snaps all day long. You classroom-managers KNOW what I’m talking about. Mass finger-snapping is one of the most beautiful phenomena in all of creation. It’s quiet and busy at the same time. That is a killer combination.

Keep blogging, people. Just. Keep. Blogging.

Weekend Music: Queen, Wembley, 1986

In my opinion, this show is one of the greatest live performances in the history of rock and roll. If I ever have a time machine of my very own, I’m attending both days of it right after I witness the Big Bang and have an epic conversation with Lorenzo di Medici.

This was a good day.

I can’t think of many people in the entire history of Rock and Roll who had the kind of stage presence Freddie Mercury had, and the Wembley ’86 concert is a touchstone moment for me. I watch videos from it often, and the crowd amazes me. Here’s the finale. I wish I’d been able to see Queen live.

So, I posted three times today because this blog needed some words. The content was out-of-balance, and the three posts were sort of like giving a swimming pool a shock treatment. I’m gratified by the response. It seems that Twitter is confusing to more people than me. I’ll keep sharing what I know about it. No blogging about Twitter tomorrow, though. Tomorrow is a big day.

We celebrate our 6-month blogiversary on the morrow, and since this is a mostly-everyday blog produced by people with day jobs and personal creative projects, I consider posting every day for six months to be a real accomplishment. Celebratory posts both here and at The Writing Catalog are in order.

Thank you, sincerely, for reading, voting, commenting, tweeting with me. For liking and favoriting our posts wherever you find them in the wilds of social media. Thank you, most of all, for your kindness, friendship, and encouragement. I feel like a member of the WordPress family, and I hope our little band of miscreants is here to stay.

Under Pressure

For the many people I know are experiencing final exams this week.

David Bowie and Annie Lennox rehearsing for the Freddie Mercury tribute concert in 1992. The actual performance is good, but I think this is better.
