“Good Morning”

Published May 3, 2018 by lynn k scott

I mentioned on a previous post that I would be sharing more music that I listen to.  While I primarily listen to contemporary Christian music, don’t let that stop you from watching the videos.

Today, I’m sharing Good Morning by Mandisa.  What I didn’t realize, is that Toby Mac and Mandisa have collaborated on quite a few songs and they compliment each other very well.  As I have become a huge Toby Mac fan recently, only right to share (an older) video of the two of them.

One thing that stood out to me about this song, besides how upbeat it is, watch both singers and how happy they both are.  They obviously love what they are doing and it shows.

So enjoy the song/video and have a wonderful day!

“Long Black Train”

Published January 14, 2016 by lynn k scott

I’ve decided, I’m going to post some of my favorite music videos and why I like them.  My taste in music varies greatly.  I like some Heavy Metal, Pop, Rock, Country, Native American, etc.  We won’t discuss it will also give me daily writing material.  That’s besides the point.

Music has played such an integral part in my life.  It’s been there when I have truly been alone.  It’s tied me to more memories, good and bad, than I can count and there’s nothing better than getting in the car, turning up the volume and just driving.

Over the last decade or so, I’ve come to appreciate and like Country music.  My mom loved country music when I was growing up. Country music, gives me a genuine feeling.  There’s just an honesty behind a lot a Country songs; situations that people can relate to.  We’ll start with Josh Turner’s, “Long Black Train“. If you haven’t heard it before, click the link and see what you think.

Besides the obvious metaphorical references to the song, this is the first Josh Turner song I ever heard.  It immediately reminded me of Country songs from the 1980s.  My mother’s favorite band back then was, The Oakridge Boys.  They were a gospel quartet and Richard Sterben sang bass.   Now don’t confuse that with ‘Daddy sang bass’.  I know, I dated myself with that reference.  Some of you are probably scratching your head and going, “Huh”???

Josh just reminded me of Richard was all.  He was also easy on the eyes.  Anyway, this song gave me comfort every time I used to listen to it.  I’ve chosen the wrong path many times throughout my life.  I’ve made some horrible decisions.  Yet, I’m still here and trying to make up for those bad choices.

For me, I also like that the song can reference God and still make it to mainstream radio and not have everyone so PC as to be judgmental about the lyrics.  I won’t be opting to ride the Long Black Train any time soon.  There’s still too much I have left to do.  Years ago, I don’t know if I could have said that, but time changes perspectives and outlooks.

I’d love to hear your perspective on the music links.  If you know this song or have just listened to it for the first time, what are your thoughts?

Video Game Revenge

Published December 2, 2015 by lynn k scott

My daughter is slightly oppressed, just ask her, she’ll tell you.  I am a mean mom because I don’t think a soon-to-be 10-year old needs her own phone.  She is never somewhere that an adult can’t contact me, if she’s not with me.

That being said, I do allow some phone borrowing to occur.  I download some games for her to play and she is allowed to borrow my phone to play them, providing chores, homework, etc. has been completed (another version of mean mom).

Every so often, these games will send me a notification.  I get a kick out of them.  Later, I will update my daughter on the “news” of her game status.

Pirate Kings is her latest game to pass the time.  I admit, I don’t know much about it, other than what my daughter tells me.  The gist of it is, you spin a wheel, get coins, buy an pirate stuff for your island; boat, castle, mermaid….Everything a good pirate would need.  The game also allows you to attack other pirate islands.  They aren’t angels after all.  Some pillaging is a pirate’s prerogative.  ARRRRRR

This morning, the “alert” came though that part of her island was destroyed.  While I was pumping gas, the lil miss dealt with her loss; someone had attacked her.  This game is devious.  It’s bad enough to lose your stuff in an attack, this game will tell you who attacked you.  After all, exacting revenge is expected.

I return to the car, where she informs me the person who attacked her no longer has a castle.  She destroyed it.  “They think they can attack me and I won’t attack back?  If I don’t have a castle, then they don’t have one anymore either.”  The was so serious, it was laughable.

I have to say, this is more amusing than the Subway Surfer updates I used to get.  With those, she would just tell me what city or country she was skating in.

I like the pirates…they are good for moms too…yo ho ho and a bottle of rum, right?

A Stroke In Time

Published November 22, 2015 by lynn k scott

I considered myself honored to be friends with professional artist, Dan Angeles, who allows the opportunity to see some of his work before they are publicly unveiled at an art exhibit.  One reason I cherish this privilege is because this was something my sister, Kathi, used to do.  After she passed, Dan allowed me the opportunity of these special previews.

I can hardly begin to express my admiration when I view these pieces.  I have yet to find any of his work not to my liking.  In every new exhibit, there are pieces that move me to tears.  I see my past and my family in his art.  I see promise, comfort, friendship and inspiration as well.  I see a gift that will one day be the topic of discussion wherever art is being taught.

In Dan’s own words, he said about his latest work:

I compiled the new body of work into a video for you to view, if you would like. I paired my paintings with the beautiful song “Titanium” performed by Madilyn Bailey, which for me speaks to the way I constantly battle my own insecurities and doubts about my work or ideas. It also explains how I face these fears head on and overcome them. The actual work itself is all about accepting change in all of it’s many forms while growing and moving forward in life, with them. I hope that you enjoy the work and the experience of viewing it with song.

I encourage all of you to view this video.  I was very moved when I first saw it.  I will be turning 44 in just a few weeks.  I have vowed on my 50th birthday to own one of Dan’s paintings.

Dan and I often joke how we are constantly making each other cry; good tears, mind you.  We have never officially met, didn’t grow up in the same geographical area, but we have shared similarities, have uncanny ties to certain pieces of his work and we shared a love for my sister that will bind us for all times.

My goal is have to have Dan showcased in San Francisco.  Besides sharing his work, in person, on the West Coast, I would actually be able to attend his exhibit, and meet my talented friend in person.

Please feel free to share this video.  I’d love to hear your feedback after watching it.  If you would like to check out more of Dan’s work, please visit artbydangles.
