Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and best wishes during this festive season. May all your dreams come true. Enjoy your time away from work, your time with family and friends and think of warmer days
You may not have realized but this is my third year of posting my musical Seasons Greetings. You can find the one for 2012 click here1 and the one from 2011 click here2
A few years ago I used to use music for my slideshows but was tagged with copyright infringment. I got notices from Sony/Columbia records and EMI so ever since that time I have been careful not to use identifiable music so what better way than to just sing yourself. I also had a problem with instrumentals where you would sing along, like in Karaoke. I was at a party with a Karaoke machine and people were singing to the music. I posted the video and the video got tagged and the music was removed by Youtube. Now I generally record street music when on vacation and just use the soundtrack. For my own projects I just sing to myself
I didn't mean to leave anyone out but I quickly selected some random photos from my cross Continent trip from Pacific to Atlantic to Pacific this Summer 2013 and presented them in random order. I get great satisfaction to see where I've been and think of all the people who welcomed me. There are also those who I had planned to meet but wasn't able due to some unforseen circumstances. There are those who are truly adventurers and able to be by themselves for weeks or months at a time. I am not one of those. While I can endure a week or so alone on the road, after that I long for company and companionship and I look forward to meeting up with others whist on the road. I met many for an hour or so, and with some I stayed for a couple of days. It's all good
This was Take 1 and recorded without practising
I don't wish to issue a Challenge but it would be nice if a few of you could work on something similar. It's not the voice, nor how well you can sing. It's the thought . . .
Merry Christmas to you all. Till we meet again . . .
