Audrey Hepburn - "Moon River" [Lyrics]
I can't think of another woman who I consider more beautiful or classy
than Audrey Hepburn. This is Audrey's voice with pictures provided
in a very well done fan tribute.
This is a great
staged and choreographed movie from the Depression era. I actually
bought a copy of the movie soundtrack a long time ago. The three clips below are my favorite
Berkeley productions in the movie. If you liked those, also check
Ruby Keeler &
Dick Powell in Honeymoon Hotel. Shanghai Lil' is my favorite
a shorter 78 version by Gene Kardos.) from the movie, and By Water Fall is
one of the most remarkable musical productions of all time. The
patterns the the beautiful swimmers make at times looks like chromosomes splitting.
Kaoruko is modern Japanese artist that I would place (rightly or wrongly) in the
Superflat movement. I really love her playful themes, colors and
her girls just being girls. Here is how she described her work in an
My portrayals of women are of scenes where one would reveal to another
woman, but never to a man. Portraits of a woman sitting in a toilet or
playing video game in their underwear, the situations are various, but no
matter how close one may be to a man, these situations are never ever
revealed to the opposite sex. The drawings are of every day life, almost
something you do subconsciously when a woman is alone or with another
woman. It’s like peeping in to that scene.
This is my Favorite Painting by Kaoruko (Tokyoko 2007)
Here's her bio from the same article. Kaoruko also make animations
and some wonderful
objects too. There are also a few more examples of her work on
Kaoruko, known artistically as TOKYOKO, a fresh face from Japan's
exciting young art scene asks her viewer's the question - "In a city
like Tokyo, what kind of life style do most women live?" In Japan,
women are expected to fulfill the Japanese ideal figure with a
beautiful, modest and gentle manner. But is it their real style?
Through her paintings, drawings and sculptures, TOKYOKO wants to show
the real world of the Tokyo Girl we only see behind closed doors.
Formerly a teen Pop-Star, and her imagery is widely known in Tokyo's
young art and pop scene. In addition to her exhibitions of artwork, she
has produced music videos for top selling artists, created animated
characters and titles for hit Japanese television shows on Nippon
Television and Television Tokyo and in 2004, TOKYOKO produced and
directed the independent short film "Indie Wars" for Nippon Television.
This is a pretty clever site. I'm sure most everybody by now has seen the
cowbell sketch, with Bruce Dickenson. Now you can add more
cowbell and Bruce to your favorite MP3 recording. Below is the MP3
that I uploaded. Please don't ask where I got that song from - LOL!
I blogged Daniel Lim a few years and decided to see what she is up to
lately. What I found on her site were the 1000 charming and
affordable colored pencil, pastel and acrylic drawings. I really
think a lot of the drawings are great, and for $100 I plan to pick one up
for myself. Daniel also has more detailed art item for sale
here, e.g., Hold Me below.
Freddie King -
Boogie Funk and
Have You Ever Loved A Woman [Lyrics]
Freddie King is another great Blues Guitar legend. His excellent
guitar playing is highlighted in this 1973 version of the instrumental
Boogie Funk followed by King's singing on his 1960 hit song Have
You Ever Loved A Woman. If I could only play 1/10 as good as
Freddie, I run out and buy a
Fender Stratocaster tomorrow! I know that's not the same brand
that King's using, but that's the axe I'd buy!
