Grace, dignity, and eloquence have long been hallmarks of Maya Angelou´s poetry. Her measured verses have stirred our souls, energized our minds, and healed our hearts. Whether offering hope in the darkest of nights or expressing sincere joy at the extraordinariness of the everyday, Maya Angelou has served as our common voice. Celebrations is a collection of timely and timeless poems that are an integral part of the global fabric. Several works have become nearly as iconic as Angelou herself: the inspiring ´´On the Pulse of Morning´´, read at President Bill Clinton´s 1993 inauguration; the heartening ´´Amazing Peace´´, presented at the 2005 lighting of the national Christmas tree at the White House; ´´A Brave and Startling Truth´´, which marked the 50th anniversary of the United Nations; and ´´Mother´´, which beautifully honors the first woman in our lives. Angelou writes of celebrations public and private; included in this volume are a bar mitzvah wish to her nephew and a birthday greeting to Oprah Winfrey. More than a writer, Angelou is a chronicler of history, an advocate for peace, and a champion for the planet, as well as a patriot, a mentor, and a friend. To be shared and cherished, the wisdom and poetry of Maya Angelou proves there is always cause for celebration. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Maya Angelou.

(2017/Grooveyard Records) 13 tracks - Way-kool 8th studio disc by Blindstone, a mega-awesome heavy guitar rock power trio from Denmark who dig in deep and pay serious musical homage on their outstanding ´´Tribute To The Blues´´ disc entitled ´´Blues-O-Delic Celebration´´. Includes 13 tracks (58 Mins) of excellent, powerful, bad-ass, Blindstone-ized, riffage, mojo & grooves that rock the house down and shine a bright light on their blues/rock musical roots. The ´´Blues-O-Delic Celebration´´ disc features a blistering set of way-kool ´´cover songs´´ by the following musical blues artists: The Three Kings: BB + Freddie + Albert, ZZ Top, Leslie West, Rocky Hill, Guitar Shorty, The Gales Brothers, Shuggie Otis, Peter Green and Jimi Hendrix. Many of the tracks are obscure and unknown, all landing rock solid killer and make for a truly excellent musical power trio ´´Blues-O-Delic Celebration´´. Blindstone is fronted by the incredible six string talents of Martin J. Andersen, a legit modern day guitar hero. The man is a bad-ass, mojo rippin´, riff:master who raises the bar and waves his heavy guitar freak flag high. MJA is a true ´´Six String Renegade´´ on a mission to ´´Keep the Rock alive´´, a bright new hope in the face of real guitar rock music. Not only is he an amazing guitarist, Brother Andersen is also an excellent, soul-powered vocalist who delivers some of his strongest vocal performances to date on the ´´B.O.D.C.´´ disc. Blindstone also feature the awesome musical talents of Jesper Bunk on low-end bottom kool bass and Sigurd Jøhnk-Jensen on kick-ass drums, both excellent players who lock in and nail down the bad-ass, heavy Blindstone monster groove machine. As an added bonus on the killer version of ´´Hey Joe´´ that ends the new disc, Martin invites his Dad Jens and Son Magnus to jam on their guitars with him at this classic track. The end result features three generations having some serious, musical fun, celebrating a song that has very special meaning to all three guitar playing Andersens. We hope that you will enjoy this special generational guitar rock family celebration. It´s time to dig deep and ´´Rock Your Blues Mojo On The Killing Floor´´ with Blindstone on the essential, guitar rockin´ ´´Blues-O-Delic Celebration´´ disc. Highly Recommended to fans of Hendrix, Robin Trower, Frank Marino, Leslie West, Eric Gales, Joe Bonamassa and to people who dig and appreciate serious, blues-based, heavy guitar rock music.
A fascinating collection of essays by renowned and emerging scholars exploring how everyday matters from farting to friendship reveal extraordinary aspects of early modern life, while seemingly exceptional acts and beliefs - such as those of ghosts, prophecies, and cannibalism - illuminate something of the routine experience of ordinary people.
