Minds Music Monday – Someone Somewhere (In Summertime) – Live

Today is the Winter Solstice. The shortest day in the northern hemisphere. Also Jupiter and Saturn align tonight to make what is deemed the “Christmas Star” – a once in 400 year alignment. And there promises to be clear skies over Glasgow this evening. Fingers crossed.

Meanwhile, as we see in the Winter Solstice today, it means the days north of the equator incrementally get longer. Moving forward to brighter days – not just geographically and meteorologically, but with the metaphorical sense too that better days are coming!

With that in mind, today’s MMM couldn’t be anything else but, Someone Somewhere (In Summertime).

I couldn’t decide which performance I wanted to link to – so like our own Christmas Star alignment of Jupiter and Saturn, I’ve linked to both. Jim is divine in both of them!

All That Glisters…

….can be gold.

I wrote this about this one on my Priptona Art FB page…

Don’t know whether the “mojo” is back…but if not, well…I just love that clip and it usually ends up inspiring something in me. And I just love that little action he makes right at the point he says “gold of day” in that clip. Closes his eyes, his brow furrows, his lips purse, puts his arms together, closes his hands into a grasping fist and softly beats them to his chest and then delivers that line (albeit miming it).
It’s just a beautiful little nano second of time…

I Wish I Was There…

Leeds, 2018. Don’t mean to be maudlin, but…

To hear the “burning slow” lines return to the song during the Grandslam part of the tour – I was sssooo, so happy. They are the most beautiful, romantic lines.

There was “soft rain” falling that night in Leeds too. And after all that had gone on in the month or so prior to that night…I felt back “home”.

It was a gorgeous night. How I wish it was happening again tonight.

OGWT Gems – Yeah, My Lips Were Whistling Alright!

I have been subscribed to this person’s YT account for a while – but a certain Mr Machray beat me to seeing this gem first.

I had seen the SSIS footage before but had never seen the Hunter And The Hunted clip from it…Just a few little gifs taken from it going back years ago. Both clips are in wonderful condition. I’m pretty sure the SSIS clip is shorter than the one I have seen previously.

OMFG! The Kerr deliciousness on offer! Fuck me! Looks to camera, licking lips, tongue poking out. I think my ovaries imploded this time, rather than exploded! Dare I offer a critique and say his singing seems…a little flat in it? Like he’s worried about being too loud or something…but frigging hell, he’s fucking beautiful!

Ya damn wet MY whistle, that’s for sure! Lol. Maybe OGWT should now stand for Old Grey’s Wet Test? 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

HELP ME! 😜😜😂😂😂

I may be some time…excuse me…

UPDATE: April 20 – I thought the clip would get taken down – so I had a backup plan!

The Return Of SSIS Video From Belgian TV

This clip was around on YouTube last year and then shortly after disappeared. I was GUTTED when it disappeared. I only got a few screengrabs from it and although I made a bit of art from it as a result, I missed being able to watch the clip. I just love it…and I adore Jim in it.

So this time, I made sure it will NEVER, EVER disappear from me EVER again! Hopefully the Belgian station will always allow the clip to be viewable on their site..but if it ever disappears, I have my own copy of it saved now.
