Agua de Beber Al Jarreau

Standard

The earth has lost another musical great, Al Jarreau. To me, he made music in its purest form, creating the most beautiful and interesting sounds using his body as an instrument, limited only by his vast imagination. For me, he is a forerunner to such artists as Bobby McFerrin, (in my opinion, another genius and innovator in a similar space) and the brilliant Pentatonix. Music literally lived within him and his music is now within me. For that I’m grateful. Rest in peace, Al Jarreau.

your love is rain
my heart a flower

the in crowd

Standard

If Mars formed life, then life on Earth could have been seeded by life on Mars, making every life form on Earth descended from Martians. – Neil Degrasse Tyson

oxygen is all the rage on earth
that is
if you want to live
but on mars
breathing is not as popular
at least not with oxygen

while you’re here on earth though
stay in with the in crowd
breathe the ever loving air
