Music is Love in Search of a Word #93

Quiet Hollers - Mont Blanc

now I take precautions for my peace of mind 
I don't know what difference it might make 
to hang on any longer 
but I cut the tree across the drive 
spend the daylight hours inside 
trying to make the place look empty 
so as no-one comes around 

I thought I saw them again last night 
those same distant headlights 
sweeping back and forth across 
the empty shells of the summer homes 
and if the bastards ever come 
promise me you'll take the kids and run 
I may be weak and I may be frail 
but I can throw them off your trail 

and I used to worry what clothes I had on 
the school recitals and the manicured lawns 
and I had a laundry-list of people 
I could count on if it all went wrong... 
and then the bomb 

shed a tear for the books I shoulda read"

Filme: What Happened, Miss Simone? (2015)

Obrigatório ver. 


"On stage Nina Simone was known for her utterly free, uninhibited musical expression, which enthralled audiences and attracted life-long fans. But amid the violent, haunting, and senseless day-to-day of the civil rights era in 1960s America, Simone struggled to reconcile her artistic identity and ambition with her devotion to a movement. Culled from hours of autobiographical tapes, this new film unveils the unmitigated ego of a brilliant artist and the absurdities of her time. At the height of her fame Simone walked away from her family, country, career and fans, to move to Liberia and give up performing. The story of her life leading up to that event poses the question, 'how does royalty stomp around in the mud and still walk with grace?"

Série: The Divide (2014)


Principal dúvida que fica: Porquê é que foi cancelada? 

The Divide is an exploration of personal morality and how all people – especially ambitious people – struggle with the shades of gray found in the absence of a simple, ordered moral universe. The show probes how truth coexists in the modern justice system alongside ambition, ethics, politics and race. As an impassioned case worker with The Innocence Initiative, Christine Rosa (Marin Ireland) delves into the case of a death-row inmate she believes was wrongly convicted of a young family’s heinous murder 11 years earlier. She chases down new evidence in a search for the truth and confronts an equally passionate district attorney, Adam Page (Damon Gupton), whose view of justice is colored by shades of gray. Throughout the journey, Christine and Adam’s pasts resurface as they are faced with the question of one man’s guilt or innocence intertwined with their own personal histories.
