"...now I can't be doing with religion, 'opiate of the masses', 'fodder for fools' etcetera, but I can understand spirituality, a connection with the earth the moon and the stars, and while I also think astrology has spawned into something akin to shopping TV, there is a glimmer of sense in the distant pagan history, for there is no denying the influence of the moon on all of us, the pull of the tides, the gateway to our wondering of the planets and the impact of the moons creation from that unique random event, that consequently reshaped and formed the earth we know of, resulting in, eventually, us, a constant visible reminder above our heads then, that we are all just Random Stuff..."

Interesting, yet, you know I see it a little differently...

"...as YouTube kick started the music industry back into life, releasing it from the stranglehold of the few and back to the many, are we now at the start of a renaissance for books too, for there has been no YouTube for them, but the technology is coming with i-things whizzing off the shelves..." splicing two old posts together the chameleon demonstrates "...and the beauty of live writing is that it can change on every edit, before every re-post, getting better and better, honed to perfection, whereas the book and the blog is set in stone, only the sequel, or annoying prequel allowed, with live writing whereas, you can ebb and flow, acquiring a bigger audience, a following, wherever you go, going forwards, breaking free, not trapped by convention, so, a franchise no, more like just musicians jamming using the same scales and notes in a pattern of unpredictability and impressions of self then..."

Il Divo’s charm works its magic



Il Divo perform at Amman Citadel as part of the Jordan Festival last Friday night








By Jean-Claude Elias

AMMAN - Was it the ultra-chic tuxedos they wore or the Elvis Presley looks of Spanish baritone Carlos Marin? Was it the warm, beautiful summer night and the picture-perfect outdoor setting of the Amman Citadel? Was it the smart choice of the well-known songs they interpreted? Or was it the excellent performance of the 24-member orchestra?

It was a little bit of all of the above, and foremost, the beauty of Il Divo’s voices combined with their charisma, stage presence, wit and youth that made their charm - a key word here - work as expected and even more during the quartet’s performance last Friday night in Amman as part of the Jordan Festival.

The festival must be in a multilingual spell, for this is the second group to sing in multiple languages (following Pink Martini), singing in English, French, Spanish and Italian.

“Il Divo” in Italian means the lead singer, or literally, the divine singer. Usually the term is reserved for a female opera singer who is called “Diva”. The group of four male singers includes tenors Urs Bںhler from Switzerland and David Miller from the USA, baritone Marin from Spain and French pop singer Sژbastien Izambard.

Il Divo sang Charles Aznavour’s hit “She”, “Bridge Over Troubled Water” by Simon and Garfunkel and “Unchained Melody”, the song made famous by the Righteous Brothers in the 1960s.

The group then moved on to the Moody Blues’ haunting “Nights in White Satin”, sung in Italian, “Without You” (by Nilsson) in Spanish, and to the audience’s delight, “Pour que tu m’aimes encore”, the song written by Jean-Jacques Goldman for the great Celine Dion. It, of course, was performed in French.

Between songs, each of Il Divo members stopped to say a nice word to a mesmerised, delighted audience. The quartet then sung “Every Time I Look at You”, “Hallelujah” (Leonard Cohen) before shifting to the classical “Adagio” by Albinoni and its moving harmonies.“Adagio” was the only classical piece in Friday’s repertoire, and Il Divo sang it very, very well.

Towards the end, the group performed “Caruso”, the Italian tribute to the great tenor from the early 20th century, a song that was originally recorded by Lucio Dalla. The talented, four-part harmony quartet closed with Frank Sinatra’s cosmic hit “My Way” sung in Spanish (A mi manera).

The audience managed to have Il Divo back for two encores. They sung “Amazing Grace” with the excellent orchestra recreating the sound of bagpipes, and then “The Impossible Dream”, saying goodbye for a second, final time.

The role of the orchestra was essential to recreate the classy pop sound, one of Il Divo’s trademarks. Particularly noticeable were the acoustic guitar and piano segments, with the latter mostly done on digital keyboards. The bass and drums worked remarkably well together and constituted a solid foundation, the section that made the difference between purely classical arrangements and pop.

Overall the sound system was good, except for a few brief moments, when the power of the four voices brought the system close to distortion.

The turnout for Il Divo, formed and managed by TV producer and presenter Simon Cowell, eclipsed that of Pink Martini last Sunday, practically a full house.

Delightfully Random you two, and in return then...

"...I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars, the rest I just squandered. George Best on cash..." he quotes having a nice cuppa tea now "...do you think humans just become their parents naturally slipping into middle age without noticing it while staring out of the window china in hand, glimpsing reminders of being young..." and then inexplicably wondering how she is now, Jats chuckles affectionately.

"...and how that reply reassures me so, having been banned for less..." Jats is happy for this marvellous audience then, looking into his box for the next emotion...

"...I'm sitting here thinking of those first times I held my boys in my arms, holding them, one by one, in their blanket close to my chest, to feel my heart, and taking them to the window, to show them the sun or the stars, to see the world for the first time through those beautiful big blue eyes. Reaching in for that tiny hand that held on to mine, and gripped so tightly, that reflex, it's just that, the Darwinian they say, but you know it's more than that, as all those feelings surge through you, the joy, the fear, oh the fear, of harm, or worse, coming their way, even though they have just said 'everythings fine, it's all ok' you know it could be tomorrow, next week, any day, it's fleeting, it's paralysing, that crippling fear, pushed away, and so you take that joy, feel that surge, nothing will ever take that away, and just hope and pray, and simply say 'Here it is, the big bad world, don't worry son, I will always be around, to hold your hand' come what may..."

Ah nation's rise and fall throughout the flow of time. Change is the spice of life and should be totally embraced. As for the stupidity and population proportion, well might as well treasure the moments you get talking to people who aren't completely bonkers

"...too true XXX, although the bonkers ones are often most entertaining and we have had plenty of them along with others like Hooke, Wren and Boyle who only three hundred or so years ago held the key to a wondrous new world yet it took young Halley whose comet helped make them see and persuaded Newton to work out the mathematical certainties before we discovered Gravitas and began our understanding of the planets..." the chameleon retrieves a quote "...like Newton then I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me, and so to some, to many, while I play child like here the fool is me while I just go by what I see, for my perception of nations and people, who like that last post then, from all the posts to choose from, brings you here now to revel in this controversy which could bind or divide now, but America will go on despite what lies ahead if only because of its unswaying blind patriotism, no matter what then..."

Damned Hippies...a little repost then from a couple of 'Gas Prices' threads...

"...I have been watching the Gas Prices thread with interest and it seems like you are catching up, £4 a gallon here in the UK, although we have it doled out in litres now, so, that's $6 dollars and 65 cents that we are paying, so I have to laugh then at your thread, and I chuckled at myself once when I paid for it in Saudi Riyals, straight from the source, and caught myself moaning when the prices went up from 17 to 20 cents a gallon, and even though that was a long time ago it's all relative as the only thing for sure is the price aint going down. Five years ago then, I noticed the trend, and got my truck converted to propane which sells at half the price of what you call 'gas' and we refer to as petrol, for sure, a temporary fix, but, it's paid for itself five times over, and the money I have saved, can go to the other energy bills that I can't afford to pay either. For my next trick then, it will be a diesel truck and run it on cooking oil, and with both kicking out zero emissions I am doing more than my fair share for the planet too, oh if only we all did this hey, then like this thread, many things would just disappear in a clean environmentally friendly puff of smoke..."

I am thinking "all men are created equal" & "all men are equal"
do not neccesarily hold the same meaning

I'm not sure what those sentiments think women are, it's not real clear on that either C9femist
