From my Running Commentary page 2, when I got immersed in posting some covers.
My comment there...
Okay, covers... There's lots. And a it's deadly fusion.
Because these are some of my fav stellar eastern performers, covering some fav familiar music.
Some with moods that the west is so good at.
Deadly in a good way, eh? Because of the emotions elicited. But I get caught by surprise.
And want to fall to my knees and cry. Right there on the street, walking in the fall warm sun.
Who will pick me up?
These covers i'm posting here....
Lift the top of my head off, I swear, and I feel my cells dispersing. Up.
So I throw in a grounding vibe, here and there, on my playlist.
Like Zico, who can always bring me back to earth.
I pull myself together and return, in case he's here.
So this is not a cover, but a take-a-Zico-moment.
We artists, baby! Randomding.
Zico picks me up.....
Ready to go again?
Hoppipolla, changing my life. With their slow pace.
Jeezus. How long do I have to fxxking wait for the next note.?
Fine. I'll change gears. Shift to slow mo.
I'm practiced...it's kinda like my trance state. (useful skills)
This group, Hoppipolla, how did I first find them?
My vibe slows to match. And my mood changes.
Yep, there's a cello. These guys play instruments.
This talent, from the group. Ha Hyunsang.
With Harry Styles Falling
Love watching the micro movements in his face, expressing...
Another one from Hyunsang. In a duet with Day 6's YoungK. Lauv cover, Never Not
Nice nice nice.
And maybe random here, but let's not do a Cover page without Lewis Capaldi's Someone I Loved with A.C.E's ... Chan, Jun, and Donghun.
I love their feeling it. So it sounds like the feeling...
Skilled! And can I say adorable?
I want to squeeze them...
Sweet. So many sweet songs. And these sweet perfomers.
Filling me with a mist of bliss. Seeping out my eyes.
Take a breath.
This guy. Showed up in a YouTube mix. Why?
Thankful. Lots of moments of pleasure, listening, every note hits. And watching. So fun to watch Kihyun sing, and move.
Now I always pick him out, in the Monsta X MV's.
Dang I pick all of them out. They all good. That's another story...
I love it when singers are on these mics.
Looks intimate. Wut? Why?
Kiyhun, expressing. Handsign me....
Imagine Dragons cover, Natural
Kihyun, in an ocean environment.
The coloring spectacular. Kihyun wicked. I mean sweet.
Tom Grennan's cover, Little Bit of Love
I'll leave it here for now.
But let's leave us with this... Creep
See it as a theatre piece. (I mean, "creep"? Doesn't that imply a bit of drama?)
Really long spaces between the notes. See what I mean?
I like the way this group builds to a climax. In their songs. Often.
Hit the high notes, darlin.
I'll whisper "You are special" in your ear...
I gotta get outta here.
This just now, this second, showed up beside my search.
I'm done. In. Spinning from a day of music.
Hey, that's a lotta sweetness and feel.
All in one day.
Most pages here on Meme Dreams are compiled from several different sites I've created over the years. All pulled together here, in various stages.
The most recent page is "Mischief", a journal of mood and music as I make my way through a grief journey. Missing loved ones. Especially G.
I love ya.
I wanna get down...

In psychology, there are two popular conceptions of happiness: hedonic and eudaimonic.
Hedonic happiness is achieved through experiences of pleasure and enjoyment,
while eudaimonic happiness is achieved through experiences of meaning and purpose.
That's a little simplified :), but a useful distinction.
Not pursuing happiness as in waiting, creating it as in now.
A greeting card with this quote, found early, followed me through the years. Chosen as a guiding principle. Lifelong...
For me, there is only the traveling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse it full length - and there I travel, looking breathlessly.
Carols Cstaneda, The Teachings of Don Jaun: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge
Oh ya? You've done that? Well...kind of. In a relaxed kind of traverse. That counts?
