debris4spike: (James - my name)
I have had a pretty good week - busy at work, but have made a determined effort to do "something" each day ... whether it is to write owing letters, or go shopping.  Procrastination and I are great friends!  As I have just said ina  recent icon post, even my artwork gets delayed.  I want to get back to some writing, as well as still wanting to decorate my bedroom in the next few weeks ... so have made a good effort this week.

I have had a shift each day and have worked on a variety of wards, so that I suppose, has made things interesting and kept me focussed.

But, yes, a good week.

And, as part of my focus I even said I would "meme" ... I still have the 5 character meme to finish but am finding my letter hard.  So [livejournal.com profile] curiouswombat I haven't forgotten.

Until then I have items to talk about that [livejournal.com profile] lupina78 has listed -

Great Britain
Family
Favourite Fandom
Music
Four-legged friends
James Marsters (you didn´t think I´d leave him out of this, did you? *gg*)

debris4spike: (Dr 10 - with sonic screwdriver)
I am slowly trying to catch up with memes - and although I still owe a couple, I thought I would do at least one of the two more recent ones.

[livejournal.com profile] slaymesoftly  gave me 5 words that she associates with me -
music
horses
English countryside
Spike/James
Angel

So ... what do I think about them? )

Wow, that was a long ramble - extra hugs to any who read it all!

2011 - Day 257

debris4spike: (Clarinet.)
After an early shift I got back to sunshine - and so gardened for 1/2 an hour.

Now I must practice - we have a concert in 10 days time (my last with the orchestra) and I need to concentrate. I won't do orchestra stuff tonight, though, but will "murder" Mozart ... his clarinet concerto is a beautiful piece of music (when played well!)

What a morning!  One of those times when I got up with plans to get a lot done.

So, started by my normal check e-mail, check LJ ... then thought while I had breakfast I would do a scan + defrag ... then noticed my anti-virus had managed to delete itself!  So, in re-loading that I managed to disconnect my pc from the internet, although according to all the lights, etc it was still working.

So, I restoed the pc back 3 days .... and had to re-load the anti-virus again!

So, 2 hours later than planned I'm back at my now scanned and functional pc to get some icons finishe - and to look at my fic.  Yes, it's my fault that there hasn't been an update.  The next chapter has been back from [livejournal.com profile] mabel_marsters  a couple of weeks, and I haven't opened it!

As I'm meant to be doing a lot of "stuff" today I thought I could do a music meme while I worked - so I snagged this from [livejournal.com profile] enigmaticblues 

 ZOMBIE MUSIC MEME

Put your media player of choice on shuffle.
I don't have any Christmas songs loaded, btw.

The first song is the overall theme for the Apocalypse 
          The Show Must Go On - Elton John

The second song is the one that plays during your first zombie kill
           Truth Is (a heavy stone) - James Marsters

The third song plays while you're getting chased by a Horde 
           Hound Dog - Elvis Presley

The fourth song plays when you're forced to kill your loved one 
           Another One Bites the Dust - Queen

The fifth song plays when you find your new love interest
           Young Americans - David Bowie

The sixth song plays when you make your final stand 
           Blue Suede Shoes - Elvis Presley

The seventh song plays when you (think you) make it through it all
           Falling Down - James Marsters

The eighth song plays when you discover a bite mark on you 
           Button Down Vandals - James Marsters

~~

That was, as ever, fun!  And, yes, I did get 3 of James' songs ... I didn't cheat!  One or two of those answers really did fit, didn't they?

So, now I must look at my fic, and see how much work needs to be done!

I just love this song - no other reason for sharing it, other than it was on the radio this morning, but not with the Everley Brothers ... so had to listen ... and had to share -

My Bible reading continues, and today took me to Psalm 46 ... which in turn, took me to The Dambusters March.

Whether you are a Pacifist, or not, The Dambusters "happened" ... and were an amazing boost to moral at the time (just ask my Dad!) ... when the film was made, again a brillaint film, with Richard Todd as Guy Gibson VC, and a brilliant March was written by Eric Coates.  We are opening the 2nd half of our September concert with this, btw.

For me it also brings backa  great school memory ... I first heard this piece played ona  piano when I was 11, by a boy called Ian.  He couldn't read music, and only ever learnt one piece of music ... this.  It is one of those stories that is hard to believe, but is true.

So, sit back and enjoy a great piece of music -




May all those who have died (or continue to suffer) for the cause of freedom receive peace ... Never forgotten.

Psalm 46 (King James Version) )
Back in the 1970's I lived in Essex, and for a short time attended a Church at Harold Wood, where Richard Bewes was the vicar (he's now at All Soul's Langham Place) ... during that time, he wrote a few hymns ... one of which isGod is our Strength and Refuge ... to the central part of the tune of The Dambusters March.

At our concert in September, Bude Orchestra is playing the version as in the top You Tube, but we are having a soloist to sing the hymn ... It's below the cut if you want to know what I'm talking about.

God is our Strength and Refuge )


I hoped you enjoyed a trip into my memories, a great tune, another lovely Psalm ... and the combination, turned into a hymn.

Hi - How are you all?

I spent yesterday with a friend from Church, and we went to visit a Stately Home ... photos to follow at some point, soon(ish).

Today has been a Jiffy morning - I took him to the vets, the long way to get exercise, had to cope with the emabarassement that is Jiffy's love of Marni - he tries to jump the queue! Then we got back and he had a bath - another of his favourite events.

This afternoon I did some housework, and went with Mum and Dad to look at wallpaper and borders ... Mum is re-decorating the breakfast room. Amazingly I ended up picking the border - Mum chose colours, I made the final vote on design!

Well, that's me up to date - as there's no news about work!

So, I now finish this scribble with a MEME that I snagged from [livejournal.com profile] lupina78 ... she has some brilliant memes, doesn't she?

Song MEME

Go HERE and change the number in the URL to reflect the year you graduated high school to get the top 100 songs of that year. Strike through the songs you hate(d). Bold the songs you love(d). Put the songs you like(d) in italics. Leave blank those you don’t care about or don’t remember.

This way for 1979 )

Thanks for those who updated me with their email address - just a reminder, if you missed it, my email address ahs changed, and I lost my contact list. Let me know if I did have your address - Thanks.

I realised that with all the songs I have listened to and thought about during this meme, one group I hadn't listed was one of those that I love the music of - and is a huge influence in the growth of the 60's ... and of "pop" music in general - The Beatles.

This song is one that I have always loved, but the accompaniament also reminds me of one of the Ghost of the Robots tracks, with the off-beat clapping.  So, here is "I Wanna Hold Your Hand"  (weird to notice the left handed playing by Paul McCartney!)
The song starts at 30secs -



 

As to a James song I haven't heard in a long time - it would have to be "Goodbye" whis was on the GotR EP Valerie, and I have on one CD that I don't often listen to!

~~~

So - That's all for this meme ... Hope you have enjoyed one or two of the songs I have picked over the 30 days.
