Friday Fun Trifecta #7

If you remember a while back, we did a segment here on SDMcKinley.com called Friday Fun Links. Fun links have evolved into Friday Fun Trifecta, where I will feature one thing of each – music, book and visual arts. Welcome to Friday Fun Trifecta #7, in appreciation for artwork. I’m a bit late on this post – and, as someone once told me, “If you can’t get here on time, just get here when you can.”

These are not frivolous activities! Although, they might be frivolous woman hoops.

Music:

[ Lyrics @ Genuis.com ]

This BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge really is one of the best things, ever. Artists covering artists, supporting each others work. Spiraling each other until greatness. It’s the best when the covers come out arguably better than the originals. Hey. You win some and lose some, right?

Book:

The Essays: A Selection by M.E. De Montaigne. I heard about this book via Ryan Holiday.

“I am afraid that our eyes are bigger than our stomachs, and that we have more curiosity than understanding. We grasp at everything, but catch nothing except wind.”
― Michel de Montaigne, The Complete Essays

Bonus:

I composed this around 2016, Bring on the Rain, by yours truly. It wasn’t 100 percent original composure, as a loop was used to produce the main growl, starting around 1:00 minute in. All other things, beginning melody, drums and etc. are 100 percent original. While I admit, nothing extra special, it surely is something.

Guys and gals, until next time – may you find all the happiness that your life can fit in it’s happy spot – S.D. McKinley.

Absolutely. We live in such a disposable world in relation to media, I love traveling back in time so-to-speak to enjoy some timeless music. It’s hard to fathom sometimes that Drake is actually a master at his trade and someone else can come along and polish it in a way that makes it shine in a different light! Cheers Neon. 🤠

Thank you, fraggle. 🤠 Glad you could take a listen. Muse is great. I haven’t done a deep dive into their stuff, but Starlight comes to mind when I hear Muse.
