 sign of disputationTomorrow

If time is relative, then can it be 10 am tomorrow right now? I want the waiting over with.

Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
[…]*

Though I hope I’ll manage more than a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, tomorrow … or at least the right and convincing amount of sound and fury. Whether or not things signify anything we can argue about … .

(And I don’t even have any olives.)

* Tomorrow and …? what?
(Yes, that is a rap version of MacBeth. Shh…)

Coultergeist

I think that most everyone has a certain song, or a number of songs, that always (or most always) help them to improve their mood, or that one associates cheerfulness with, or safety, or mellowness, or any number of emotions. (And the same might be true for songs that never fail to make one sad). I know I certainly do have songs that can cheer me up, and today I just want to share one of them with you, rather randomly, and mostly because I’ve been listening to it on repeat on the way home just now.

It’s a comparatively recent find, and I came to it via the nationwide German classical radio station, Klassikradio.de.  It was composed by Phil Coulter and is called the Coultergeist. (And if I thought I had more time during the summer, I’d totally learn how to play it on the piano, as it does not sound unmanageable to me. Alas, sheetmusic is nowhere to be found, and I really ought to be doing other things. But anyway, I digress… .)

There are a number of interesting adaptations of the song on youtube, some better than others, but unfortunately none of them comes close to the original. But the internet is wide and varied, and if youtube does not have what you are looking for, some other video portal surely will.

Thus: if you’re so inclined, this way to the Coultergeist.
