Memorial Day Weekend Dance Party!

In honor of our Warrior Queen Anne Marie in Philly, let’s have a Dance Party!

Klymaxx – Meeting In The Ladies Room – 1984

Vanity 6 – Nasty Girl – 1982

Sheila E. – The Glamorous Life – 1984

It’s been two years since I received that call and my heart sank. Today I remember the treasured moments I was blessed to spend with my dear blogger friend and how she lived her life to the fullest.
Anne Marie…you inspire me, I miss you and I love you. I still smile when I think of you. XO

To my Warrior Queen

Dear Anne Marie in Philly,

I sure do miss you. From wherever you are I do hope you enjoyed your Phillies winning the National League title over my Padres last year.
I sure wish we had been able to experience that here together, even though your team did win. But alas we weren’t, however I know I wasn’t alone and that we watched your team take the pennant each from our own dimension.
Tomorrow 3/30/23 is opening day here in San Diego as we begin another season. Your beloved Phillies are back at it as well.  I dedicate this post and the song below to you my dear Warrior Queen. May the best team win.

John Fogerty – Centerfield – 1985

Love Fearsome                                                                                                                                                            oh…and Go Padres! 😘

Christmas Time Is Here

A tradition that will continue is the playing of this tune to welcome Christmas into my home.
May yours be filled with peace, love and joy.
Merry Christmas…

Vince Guaraldi Trio – Christmas Time Is Here – 1965

…and in case you want to know a little more about this tune as well as the show from which it came:

Night four, a bonus post…

As featured here on FearsomeBeard on night one, Kurstin x Grohl are posting nightly to YouTube for Hanukkah. Tonight’s post features Violet Grohl and it took my breath away.
Then I read the comments.
Janis Ian who wrote and performed tonight’s piece was the top comment. She thanks them both for so beautifully performing her song and let’s them know how they are helping her in her own journey. I’m still grabbing tissues as I write this.

Kurstin x Grohl featuring Violet Grohl – At Seventeen – Janis Ian Cover – 2022

Janis’ original version is a big part of my childhood soundtrack. I feel the need to post it as well. The little boy in me adores it.

Janus Ian – At Seventeen – 1975

Thank you Greg, Dave & Violet for this beautiful night four performance. Thank you Janis for this song, this beautiful song.

Happy Hanukkah

It all starts at sundown this evening. Depending on where you are reading this, it may have already begun.
Whether you celebrate Hanukkah or not, may yours be joyful and bring you peace. To me, as a Goy myself, the holiday represents perseverance, miracles, light and freedom. I therefore I celebrate it in my own Goyish way.
