General Discussion Forum / Cassandra Wilson - Jazz Vocalist
« on: March 04, 2012, 09:55:31 PM »
Guys.............had intended to mention this earlier this weekend, but Mrs. Strike and I saw Cassandra Wilson in performance at the Nashville Symphony Hall, accompanied on three selections by the Nashville Symphony Orchestra.  She performed selections across the gamut of her musical output, with three selections from my absolute favorite CD of hers, New Moon Daughter.   To say that I have been damn near MESMERIZED by this CD over the last 15 years or so is an understatement.  :)

And you can imagine my damn near SHOCK when only the second selection of the nite was my ABSOLUTE favorite recording of hers, Harvest Moon from NMD CD, and she was accompanied by the Nashville Symphony.  It was absolutely an almost ethereal experience for me, and your humble poster was damn near shaking I was so moved.  Mrs. Strike is very familiar AND understanding of my affection for this lady as an artist, as I have often stated to Mrs. Strike that she is my dear wife, but Cassandra is my "girl".  ;D

Also performed from New Moon Daughter was Love is Blindness, and I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry.  As you can probably tell, it was quite a nite for me, although your humble poster was a "tad" disappointed that the total performance time was just short of an hour.   :(

General Discussion Forum / Davy Jones (The Monkees)

 :(...............I'm sorry, but no love from you onnidan peeps on the passing of Davy Jones? ???

Surely, some of you "mature" Meac ladies considered 5ft-3inches Davy a "heartthrob" back in the day.  And you "mature" bruhs have to admit that you were at a lost to understand how lil Davy could get so much play back then.  ;D

"........Cheer up, sleepy Jean, oh what can it mean
To a daydream believer and a homecoming queen..."


RIP, Davy Jones.

On the Sidelines and In The Stands / Discussion about the FAMU band
« on: December 12, 2011, 10:41:32 AM »
Moderator(s) and board:

Your humble poster is a tad technologically challenged, so it took me awhile to discover that the thread started by j1908 which is an article in the AJC about the "culture" of hazing at FAMU has been locked.

That may explain the sudden disappearance or, more accurately, lack of activity on the other FAMU band threads.

No doubt this has been a very contentious issue, generating some VERY passionate comments from FAMU friends and detractors alike.  But I am concerned when it "appears" to me that those who run this board think that certain topics should not even be discussed.

Guys, trust, your humble poster is NOT trying to initiate another heated debate. But what happened to the FAMU drum major, even given all we DO know, is a topic that SHOULD be discussed as it has broader implications for HBCU's everywhere.

Ok, end of sermon.
