Posted on 06/29/2012 5:59:14 PM PDT by AZamericonnie
I was outside Fox News this morning for their All-American Summer Concert Series, featuring Pat Benatar (woo hoo!).
Had a little video camera, and despite checking it, I had to change the batteries once early on. I thought enough to bring a spare pair of double A's. Here are some of the songs she performed:
Pat Benatar, "Love is a Battlefield"
If you caught "Love is a Battlefield" live on Fox and Friends, I was right there in the audience, near the camera.

Our Flag Flying Proudly One Nation Under God

Lord, Please Bless Our Troops, They're fighting for our Freedom.

God Bless Our Republic
I pledge allegiance to the Flag
of the United States of America,
and to the Republic, for which it stands;
one nation UNDER GOD,
with liberty and justice for all.
Prayers going up
Some people avoid going to the doctor because they dont want to find out that anything is wrong with them. Some people avoid going to church for the same reason. But ignorance of our sickness doesnt make us healthy, and ignorance of our sin doesnt make us innocent
Roman law is considered to be the source of the idea that ignorance of the law excuses no one. But the concept originated much earlier. When God gave the law to Israel, He established that even unintentional sin required a sacrifice for forgiveness (Lev. 4; Ezek. 45:18-20).
In his letter to Christians living in Rome, the apostle Paul addressed the issue of ignorance or lack of understanding. When people were ignorant of Gods righteousness, they made up their own (Rom. 10:3). When we live according to our own standards of right and wrong, we might feel good about ourselves, but that doesnt make us spiritually healthy. Only when we are measured by Gods standard of righteousness (Jesus) do we know the condition of our spiritual health.
None of us can achieve the righteousness of Christ, but thankfully we dont have to. He shares His righteousness with us (5:21). The good news about finding out whats wrong with us is that the Great Physician can make us well.
Read: Romans 5:12-21
27 seconds is a very long time, apparently.

Good evening TMS & great to see you! *Hugs*
Did you get a little trailer or something yet to homestead?
First, there was the mess created by the divorce of Joseph and Amalie Joachim. Joseph had filed on grounds of adultery, and Amalie waved her character reference from Brahms in the face of the court and the public. She won, and Joseph viewed the character reference as a betrayal. Despite this, he would still pick up his violin and give a magnificent performance of a Brahms piece. The two would converse by letter, but Joseph didnt want to be in the same room with his old friend
For the summer of 1884, Brahms tried yet another resort town, this time in the Austrian Alps, with the awkward name of Mürzzuschlag. The main event of this summer was the composition of the first two movements of another symphony.
In the summer of 1885, at the age of 52, Brahms finished his Fourth Symphony at the same resort. His friends did not understand the piece, and some suggested suppressing it. But Brahms lurched gamely ahead to Meiningen, where Hans von Bülow would wield the baton. It turned out to be a hit, but Brahms wasnt sure why.
Lisl and Heinz von Herzogenberg had moved from Leipzig to Berlin where the professor had landed a gig at Joachims music school. The couple was blown away by Joachims conducting the symphony. Even Clara Schumann loved it when she heard it in a piano arrangement, although Claras hearing was on the wane. Vienna applauded it in 1886, but Brahms wasnt sure why.
It starts somberly. Its no coincidence that the last piece of music Brahms composed a decade later, a song with a biblical text, starts with the same melody, but set to the words, O death, O death. The second subject at 2:28 is only a bit sunnier. Brahms doesnt repeat his exposition but plunges into his development at 3:58. At 7:32 Brahms pulls out of this dark well and recaps smack in the middle of the first subject where you dont expect it. Listeners would have expected him to find a way to resolve it in a major key, but at the end, Brahms goes for the uncompromising.
The slow movement starts with horns, not in E Major, but in E Phrygian, an archaic mode that hints at a medieval scene from Wagner.
For the first time in a symphony, Brahms opts for a scherzo, rather than an intermezzo. Its a full blooded movement in duple time in C Major, and its the perfect foil for what comes last.
The finale is a turn back to Bach. Its a chaconne, a ground bass underlying an eight bar theme which is varied no fewer than thirty times over the course of the movement. It caps a symphony that progresses from a troubling twilight to the darkest night.
Yes, yes she is.

From a preview single off their new 2012 album, their first in I believe sixteen years, Mazzy Star - Lay Myself Down
The sound of Mazzy Star is best described as atmospheric, psychedelic country/folk pop, sort of dreamlike, obviously hard to categorize, lol. The band is best known for 1993’s “Fade Into You,” with lead singer Hope Sandoval going on to form her own band, Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions, prior to the recent reunion of Mazzy Star.
I’ve always liked tbe sound of her voice, whatever the iteration.
Aloha Bigs! This is the first time in all these years I’ve seen you change your tagline! Well done! *Hugs*
How in the world are you? Enjoying your summer? It's hotter than blazes here! *Hugs*
I am going shopping this weekend for one. Then in Aug. I’ll get my truck. I’ll post photos on FB when I get it.
The early cello sonata from decades before was a problematic piece that never became all that popular. The new sonata he wrote in Switzerland has become one of the staples of the repertory, and every cellist worth his salt works to master it. Its a lot more fun that its predecessor.
The first movement starts off with Brahms grabbing the listener by the scruff of the neck with a theme that simply soars. The second theme at 1:02 is beautiful. This recording observes the repeat of the exposition, and its welcome. Development starts at 3:53, and its quite dark. The light returns at 6:00 with the recapitulation, and the coda is breathtaking.
The slow movement is in the remote key of F# Major with a walking bass line played first on the cello and then on the piano. This is a beautiful, heartfelt movement.
The third movement is a scherzo in F minor that is one of Brahms very best. The middle (trio) section is exceptional, with the piano dancing around the cello line.
All is satisfaction at the finale, returning to the key of F in rondo format.
Hiya Biggirl & good to see you. *Hugs*
Hope you have a loverly weekend!
Good evening, Cindy, and thanks for the video tunes for the troops to enjoy. ((HUGS))
I LOVE the Fifes and Drums!!!!
Good to be here! (((hugs)))
Thanks for opening the Canteen tonight with awesome tunes! :)
Oops! My bad!
Could you ask for a better and sweeter first subject? The violin just soars. The second subject in E Major is just as sweet, but with a touch of rue. Joachim must have been captivated. The development is mostly in minor keys, so the return to A Major is welcome.
The second movement combines slow movement and scherzo in a manner reminiscent of Dvorak.
The finale is mostly sweetness and light.
It's Tunes For Our Troops!
Thanks so much for helping Grammie! I really appreciate it! *Hugs*
Way back in the Thirties, there was a pianist named Zez Confrey who was known as “kitten on the keys”.
Well, that’s interesting to know. I think I remember a song
by that name, too. :)
You’re posting lots of good stuff tonight, Maestro! :)
