Two of my favorite Sufjan songs. Together, in new clothes. Sure, the voice failed at times. Of course: it's real. Music as it should be: continuously recreated, moving, inspirational, emotional. 

(It is a pity he is not coming to Portugal this time. The last time he did a great concert.)

The endless quest to improve sound quality... it's like the holy Grail: I never get there.

The vertical airports - II

"The vertical airports" is a concept that has been on my mind for some time now (at least since I watch the storks, as in the image of my last post). I was curious and googled it. Result:

New Song

This is a song about the way Nature can surprise us and amaze our lives.

"Lord, teach me 
That I must have an end, 
And my life has a purpose, 
and I must accept this."
(from Brahms' Requiem)


"Everyone suffers; life is pain; and death is the final punctuation at the end of that sentence, so deal with it."
(Sufjan Stevens, here.)

Like the songs, the lyrics presented in this blog are mere snapshots of something that is in a developing process. They grow, stop, grow again, change, fade, eventually die and/or generate offspring. A bit like life itself. Here is a snapshot:

To Explore!

Oh to explore!
The universe and beyond!
Life on Earth and elsewhere!
To search and research!
Infinite Multiverses!
Oh Awe!

What's the time?
No! What is Time?
And God?
What are we?
And why do I wonder?

Oh to Discover!
You, in verse
And to uncover
A universe of you. 


You are welcome to explore further the song/lyrics...

One of the earliest influences of this blogger. Rest in peace, Steve.

Every thing is connected

I was going to say that this garage band blog is getting very hermetic, because even I could not understand my last post written just a few hours ago. Then the idea was to google a picture from Moebius' Garage Hermetique as an illustration and what did I find? Moebius drawing Titeuf, whom I saw every day for years (it was drawn on my mousepad). And what is the drawing's title? And what is my last post's title? And do I really need to link my last post everytime I mention it? Yes: everything is linked!

P.S. - And, oddly enough, the images in the two posts are also visually and semantically related. OK, here is the secret, less hermetically put:

joining multiple pictures of a city's "Titeuf's hair" (glass reflections at sunset), taken in different days and/or from slightly different places, in a single picture or movie, should be a pretty sight.

It may not be the first of a few great ideas, but what the heck... tell it to your friends, tell it to your father, tell it to your sister too...

Shhh, I'll tell you a secret:

Different every time, every day and every place. Join them.

Oh, I completely get it (i think... I will... in March...)
