Bela canção tradicional Irlandesa do século XVII, frequentemente cantada, tanto na Irlanda como na Escócia, no final de encontros entre amigos.

 

 

 

Of all the money that e'er I spent 
I've spent it in good company 
And all the harm that ever I did 
Alas it was to none but me 
And all I've done for want of wit 
To memory now I can't recall 
So fill to me the parting glass 
Good night and joy be with you all

If I had money enough to spend 
And leisure to sit awhile
There is a fair maid in the town 
That sorely has my heart beguiled 
Her rosy cheeks and ruby lips 
I own she has my heart enthralled 
So fill to me the parting glass 
Good night and joy be with you all

Oh, all the comrades that e'er I had 
They're sorry for my going away 
And all the sweethearts that e'er I had 
They'd wish me one more day to stay 
But since it falls unto my lot 
That I should rise and you should not 
I'll gently rise and softly call 
Good night and joy be with you all

 

The Parting Glass (popular Irish song, 17th century)

Todo o bom dinheiro

Que eu tinha

Gastei-o em boa companhia, sim

E todo o mal

Que alguma vez fiz

Acabou por ser mal

Apenas para mim

E tudo o que fiz

Por falta de discernimento

Já não consigo agora recordar

Então, enche-me

O copo da despedida

Boa noite e alegria para todos vocês

(…)

Mas já que a mim

Cabe a função

Devo ir embora

E vocês não

Levanto-me calmamente

E digo devagar

Boa noite e alegria para todos vocês

Então a mim

Cabe a função

Devo ir embora

E vocês não

Levanto simplesmente

O meu copo e digo

Boa noite e alegria…

E tudo o que fiz

Por falta de discernimento

Já não consigo agora recordar

Então enche-me

O copo da despedida

Boa noite e…

Alegria para todos vocês

Em 31 de outubro de 1975

foi lançado o tema Bohemian Rapsody dos QUEEN.

 

Este tema fantástico é formado por três partes principais:

um segmento de balada que termina com um solo de guitarra,

uma passagem operática e uma secção de hard rock.

 

Quanto à composição, o tema consiste em seis secções:

1. introdução

2. balada

3. solo de guitarra

4. ópera

5. hard rock

6. conclusão

Um formato com mudanças abruptas de estilo, tom e andamento,

que não era comum em músicas de rock.

 

Freddie Mercury escreveu a maior parte de Bohemian Rhapsody 

em sua casa,no oeste de Londres. Aliás, começou a desenvolver

o tema já no final da década de 1960.

 

 

* * * 

BOHEMIAN RAPSODY FAZ HOJE 40 ANOS!

 

 

* * * 

 

O jornal The New York Times comentou que "a característica mais distintiva da música é a letra fatalista". Freddie Mercury recusou-se a explicar a sua composição, dizendo apenas que se tratava de relacionamentos; a banda ainda protege o segredo da música, apesar de Brian May apoiar ideias que sugerem que o tema possui referências veladas a traumas pessoais de Freddie Mercury, relembrando que "Freddie era uma pessoa muito complexa: irreverente e engraçada no exterior, mas escondia inseguranças e problemas com sua vida e sua infância. Ele nunca explicou a letra, mas eu acho que ele colocou muito de si mesmo naquela música" 

 

Num documentário da BBC Three sobre o making of de Bohemian Rhapsody, Roger Taylor afirmou que o verdadeiro significado da música é "bastante auto-explicativo, apenas com um pouco de nonsense no meio".

"Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide,
No escape from reality.

Open your eyes,
Look up to the skies and see,
I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy,
Because I'm easy come, easy go,
Little high, little low,
Anyway the wind blows doesn't really matter to me, to me.

Mama, just killed a man,
Put a gun against his head,
Pulled my trigger, now he's dead.
Mama, life had just begun,
But now I've gone and thrown it all away.

Mama, ooh,
Didn't mean to make you cry,
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow,
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters.

Too late, my time has come,
Sent shivers down my spine,
Body's aching all the time.
Goodbye, everybody, I've got to go,
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth.

Mama, ooh (anyway the wind blows),
I don't wanna die,
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all.

I see a little silhouetto of a man,
Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango?
Thunderbolt and lightning,
Very, very frightening me.
(Galileo) Galileo.
(Galileo) Galileo,
Galileo Figaro
Magnifico.

I'm just a poor boy, nobody loves me.
He's just a poor boy from a poor family,
Spare him his life from this monstrosity.

Easy come, easy go, will you let me go?
Bismillah! No, we will not let you go. (Let him go!)
Bismillah! We will not let you go. (Let him go!)
Bismillah! We will not let you go. (Let me go!)
Will not let you go. (Let me go!)
Never, never let you go
Never let me go, oh.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
Oh, mama mia, mama mia (Mama mia, let me go.)
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me.

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye?
So you think you can love me and leave me to die?
Oh, baby, can't do this to me, baby,
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here.

(Oh, yeah, oh yeah)

Nothing really matters,
Anyone can see,
Nothing really matters,
Nothing really matters to me.

Anyway the wind blows."

"I'm going to shatter some illusions," he smiles. "It was just one of those pieces I wrote for the album: just writing my batch of songs. In its early stages I almost rejected it, but then it grew. We started deciding on a single about halfway through. There were a few contenders - we were thinking of 'The Prophet's Song' at one point - but then 'Bohemian Rhapsody' seemed the one. There was a time when the others wanted to chop it around a bit, but I refused. If it was going to be released, it would be in its entirety. We knew it was very risky, but we had so much confidence in that song - I did anyway. I felt, underneath it all, that if it was successful it would earn a lot of respect."

He takes a fresh breath and continues. "People were all going, You're joking, they'll never play it, you'll only hear the first few bars and then they'll fade it out. We had numerous rows. EMI were shocked - A six-minute single? You must be joking! The same in America - Oh, you just got away with it in Britain."

"Se te comparo a um dia de verão
És por certo mais belo e mais ameno
O vento espalha as folhas pelo chão
E o tempo do verão é bem pequeno.

Ás vezes brilha o Sol em demasia
Outras vezes desmaia com frieza;
O que é belo declina num só dia,
Na terna mutação da natureza.

Mas em ti o verão será eterno,
E a beleza que tens não perderás;
Nem chegarás da morte ao triste inverno:

Nestas linhas com o tempo crescerás.
E enquanto nesta terra houver um ser,
Meus versos vivos te farão viver."

 

 

William Shakespeare, Soneto 18

"Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date:


"Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimm'd;


But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,


When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st;
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee."

Hoje finalmente encontrei este tema!

Só o ouvi uma vez, há vários anos.

 

E há vários anos que o procurava, mas não sabia o titulo nem o autor.

Mesmo assim, procurei das mais variadas formas. E nada!

 

Eu sabia que o encontraria. 

Nos últimos dias, estava constantemente a lembrar-me dele,

e com a sensação estranhamente boa que o encontraria em breve.


E sim! Foi hoje!


O tema veio ter comigo! Literalmente!

Na Rádio Nostalgia​, ao início da noite, na edição da"Idade da inocência" de Luis Ferreira de Almeida.

Eu estava a conduzir, e quando ouvi as primeiras notas e me pareceu o tema que eu tanto procurei,

tive que parar o carro para ouvir! Eu sei, é estranho, mas é verdade!


Foi um momento muito feliz para mim.

Obrigada Rádio Nostalgia! 

Obrigada Luis Ferreira de Almeida por ter escolhido precisamente este tema, entre tantos outros,

para homenagear Richard Harris.

 

'Slides' de Richard Harris!!!

 

Muito bom. Encontrei-o!

Encontrei-o, finalmente!

"Morning chaps.

I’d like to welcome you back to the third form of your years,

I trust you’ll thrive in here.

Others in the past have come alive in here.

Happy to say they found their way.

You recall I asked, back when I saw you last,

that you’d consult my list of books for summer reading.

We’ll go over those and others

you’ll be needing for the coming year, if I’m still here.

I suppose you heard the word that’s going about,

my superiors doubt I’m fit to teach you.

Have a nip before the game and they’ll impeach you.

Forget about the fact that I reach you.

I reach you.

Well, enough of that.

Lets get on with it.

I’ve arranged to show some slides that might amuse you.

And if, of course, you’re bored, then I’ll excuse you.

Though what you’re about to see,

in times of sickness, is my cure,

living well is my best revenge, you can be sure.

This is the Grand Canyon, in the great State of Arizona.

See there, the magnificent blend of all the colours of the rainbow.

It is virtually unphotographable at any given point to so vast.

The Colorado River trickles through its base like a deeply buried brook.

Geologists say that with time and erosion the Pacific Ocean,

some 300 miles West, will one day reach the Canyon and flow through there.

I camped here, see?

Right there.

Oh, what peace I found.

The only sounds I heard were the sounds I made.

No-no, it is true.

And here beyond, on a remote roadside stand,

an Indian boy planted himself arms folded beneath a sign 

that said “seashells should lead the world”.

This is a hobo, a dying bread.

A pity.

He claimed that an inheritance fortune

awaited him in a bank back East but he couldn’t care less.

There’s more of them.

The one with the umbrella claimed to be the real Mr. Bojangles.

Sunset.

Another sunset.

I know it looks undistinguishable from the last but I remember the difference.

Vancouver, British Columbia.

I spent some time there at a ski lodge.

Something so healthy and wholesome about skiers.

Like this one.

She always seemed to appear when I took a slip

on the slops where I had no business being.

But I’d look up and there she’d be.

And soon it happen that whenever she’d turned and look up, there I’d be.

The chalet.

Inside there, by a warm fire, is where my mind has want to wander now.

To the scent of pine and the taste of wine.

You’re too young for wine now but make a note of it.

There she is again.

We rented those horses for a day.

See mine? His name was...

Oh what was it now? I forget. Oh yes, it was sugar.

And there’s my friend again.

She looks rather sad there.

It seems that everyday, well, she always had some special plan for us.

And this, this is a beautiful Indian girl.

Look at her!

She and her secret mysterious ways.

The pride of her people.

Our sunshine, the said of her.

This was the road South into Oregon.

This is how logs are transported, long rafts that trail the northwest rivers.

Big Sur, California.

An old Spanish Mission.

Carmel, California.

Those trees seemed frozen against the landscape.

They remind me of a book I once heard of called The Cypresses Believe in God.

This was near the end of my adventure.

The clock in my head told me it was time to leave.

So that I was more concerned with seeing

what I could first hand

rather then rush for the camera.

I find that travelling alone is somehow more realistic then with others.

You find yourself in a new place all alone and you deal with it

as oppose to when you’re with others who are familiar to you

and in a sense shelter you from situations you would otherwise meet head on.

You know what I mean?

Besides, if your loved ones are with you, you have no one to go home to."

Comemora-se hoje o 108º aniversário de Hannah Arendt.

Nascida em  Linden, Alemanha, a 14 de outubro de 1906. Viria a falecer em Nova Iorque, Estados Unidos, a 4 de dezembro de 1975.

Hannah Arendt foi uma filósofa política alemã de origem judaica, uma das mais influentes do século XX. 

 

 

 

* * *

HANNAH ARENDT - 108 ANIVERSARIO 

 

* * *

 

"Haverá talvez verdades que ficam além da linguagem e que podem ser de grande relevância para o homem no singular, isto é, para o homem que, seja o que for, não é um ser político. Mas os homens no plural, isto é, os homens que vivem e se movem e agem neste mundo, só podem experimentar o significado das coisas por poderem falar e ser inteligíveis entre si e consigo mesmos.
        Mais próximo e talvez igualmente decisivo é outro acontecimento não menos ameaçador: o advento da automação, que dentro de algumas décadas provavelmente esvaziará as fábricas e libertará a humanidade do seu fardo mais antigo e mais natural, o fardo do trabalho e da sujeição à necessidade. Mais uma vez, trata-se de um aspecto fundamental da condição humana; mas a rebelião contra esse aspecto, o desejo de libertação das 'fadigas e penas' do trabalho é tão antigo como a história de que se tem registo. Por si, a isenção do trabalho não é novidade: já foi um dos mais arraigados privilégios de uma minoria. Neste segundo caso, parece que o progresso científico e as conquistas da técnica serviram apenas para a realização de algo com que todas as eras anteriores sonharam e nenhuma pôde realizar. (...) O que se nos depara, portanto, é a possibilidade de uma sociedade de trabalhadores sem trabalho, isto é, sem a única actividade que lhes resta. Certamente nada poderia ser pior."

Quando vocês estiverem tristes, pensem em coisas lindas:
Balas, travessuras, carinho, carrinho, beijo de mãe,
Brincadeira de queimado, árvore de natal,
Árvore de jabuticaba, céu amarelo, bolas azuis,
Risadas, colo de pai, história de avó...
Quando vocês forem grandes e acharem que a vida não é linda,
Pensem em coisas lindas.
Mas pensem com força, com muita força,
Porque aí o céu vai ficar cheio de vacas gordas amarelas,
Cachorro bonzinho, bruxa simpática,
Sorvete de chocolate, caramelos e amigos
Vamos, vamos lá! vamos pensar só em coisas lindas!
Brincar na chuva, boneca nova, boneca velha, bola grande,
Mar verde, submarino amarelo, fruta molhada, banho de rio,
Guerra de travesseiro, boneco de areia, princesas,
Heróis, cavalos voadores...

NELSON MANDELA 1
 

 

Prodigal Son
Mandela was born on July 18, 1918, in the village of Mviza in South Africa’s Eastern Cape. His father was a counselor to a local king. He chose for his son the name Rolihlahla, which translated from Xhosa means literally “pulling a branch off a tree” — or, more colloquially, “troublemaker.” A schoolteacher would confer upon him the name Nelson. [TIME World]

 NELSON MANDELA 2

 

Fighting the Law
Mandela and other co-defendants appear at the famous Treason Trial in Johannesburg, 1956. Mandela, along with his longtime ally Oliver Thambo and 154 others, was charged with treason. The case, which dragged on for five years, by which time all were acquitted, brought the struggle of the ANC to international attention. [TIME World]

NELSON MANDELA 3

 

The Long Wait
Mandela sews prison clothes by the shore in 1964. He was sent to the infamous jail at Robben Island, a barren rock off the coast near Cape Town, in 1963 in part for his activities supporting the ANC’s militant wing, Umkhonto we Sizwe (the Spear of the Nation). His 27-year-long imprisonment made him the world’s most famous political prisoner. [TIME World]

Valentina Tereshkova

 

At the age of 26,  she was the first woman in Space.

 

 

 

 

* * *

 

 

 

* * *

 

 

 

First woman in space: Valentina

 

 

Valentina Tereshkova
 
 
 
16 June 2013
 
 

Valentina Tereshkova was born in Maslennikovo, near Yaroslavl, in Russia on 6 March 1937. Her father was a tractor driver and her mother worked in a textile factory. Interested in parachuting from a young age, Tereshkova began skydiving at a local flying club, making her first jump at the age of 22 in May 1959. At the time of her selection as a cosmonaut, she was working as a textile worker in a local factory.

After the first human spaceflight by Yuri Gagarin, the selection of female cosmonaut trainees was authorised by the Soviet government, with the aim of ensuring the first woman in space was a Soviet citizen.

On 16 February 1962, out of more than 400 applicants, five women were selected to join the cosmonaut corps: Tatyana Kuznetsova, Irina Solovyova, Zhanna Yorkina, Valentina Ponomaryova and Valentina Tereshkova. The group spent several months in training, which included weightless flights, isolation tests, centrifuge tests, 120 parachute jumps and pilot training in jet aircraft.

Four candidates passed the final examinations in November 1962, after which they were commissioned as lieutenants in the Soviet air force (meaning Tereshkova also became the first civilian to fly in space, since technically these were only honorary ranks).

Originally a joint mission was planned that would see two women launched on solo Vostok flights on consecutive days in March or April 1963. Tereshkova, Solovyova and Ponomaryova were the leading candidates. It was intended that Tereshkova would be launched first in Vostok 5, with Ponomaryova following her in Vostok 6.

However, this plan was changed in March 1963: Vostok 5 would carry a male cosmonaut, Valeri Bykovsky, flying the mission with a woman in Vostok 6 in June. The Russian space authorities nominated Tereshkova to make the joint flight.

 

 

Flight of the ‘Seagull’

 

Valentina Tereshkova
 
 

After watching the launch of Vostok 5 at Baikonur Cosmodrome on 14 June, Tereshkova completed preparations for her own flight. On the morning of 16 June, Tereshkova and her backup Solovyova both dressed in spacesuits and were taken to the launch pad by bus. After completing checks of communication and life support systems, she was sealed inside her spacecraft. 

After a two-hour countdown, Vostok 6 lifted off without fault and, within hours, she was in communication with Bykovsky in Vostok 5, marking the second time that two manned spacecraft were in space at the same time. With the radio call sign ‘Chaika’ (‘seagull’), Tereshkova had become the first woman in space. She was 26. 

Tereshkova’s televised image was broadcast throughout the Soviet Union and she spoke to Khrushchev by radio. She maintained a flight log and performed various tests to collect data on her body’s reaction to spaceflight. Her photographs of Earth and the horizon were later used to identify aerosol layers within the atmosphere.

Her mission lasted just under three days (two days, 23 hours, and 12 minutes). With a single flight, she had logged more flight time than the all the US Mercury astronauts who had flown to that date combined. Both Tereshkova and Bykovsky were record-holders. Bykovsky had spent nearly five days in orbit and even today he retains the record for having spent the longest period of time in space alone.

O meu desejo é que todos tenham Natal.

 

*

 

"Feliz, feliz é o Natal, que faz com que nos lembremos das ilusões de nossa infância, que faz o avô recordar as alegrias de sua juventude, e que leva o viajante a sua chaminé e ao seu doce lar!"

 

Charles Dickens

 

*

"Honrarei o Natal em meu coração e tentarei conservá-lo durante todo o ano."

 

Charles Dickens

"O Natal não é um momento nem uma estação, é um estado de espírito. Valorizar a paz, a generosidade e o perdão é compreender o verdadeiro significado do Natal."

 

Calvin Coolidge
