Today’s music is Pray for Me by Canada’s The Weeknd & Kendrick Lamar, a song written for the cool new movie Black Panther, which I recently enjoyed, especially the fabulous costumes, being an artist & fashion designer:

Call Out My Name, another new  song by The Weekend:

Sometimes I like Justine Timberlake, like this video of Say Something, which was unexpected, a down-home duo with Chris Stapleton, something I’d never seen before; and then that 60-person choir and 12 musicians:

The video was shot live in one take by La Blogothèque director Arturo Perez Jr., inside the 1893 Bradbury Building in Los Angeles, which you might recognize from the original Blade Runner movie.

Today’s music is by Paul Simon, whose Homeward Bound Farewell Tour pulls into Vancouver on May 16. Always liked this video with Chevy Chase. The song was from his 1986 album Graceland:

Simon, now 77, has a career spanning six decades, beginning in 1964 as half the duo Simon & Garfunkel, which split up in 1970 at the peak of its popularity. They released this song in 1966, which has gone through my head every time I’ve sat waiting for a train:

Jazz pianist Cecil Taylor died this week. Not easy listening, but his improvisation pushed the boundaries of jazz. His music was once described as Bartok in reverse:

The Angel Easter Sale – 20% off Spring 2018 collection

The imagery of Easter is confusing. Why is it about Easter bunnies and eggs? Is it about rebirth, fertility, the resurrection of Jesus?

The Ancient Egyptians believed in a primeval egg from which the sun god hatched. An alternative theory, the sun was sometimes discussed as an egg itself, laid daily by the celestial goose, Seb, the god of the earth. The Phoenix is said to have emerged from this egg.  The photo to the left is Palm Sunday in Barcelona, which I took a few years ago while visiting Desigual’s headquarters.

But back to the eggs, bunnies and rebirth. That’s the imagery that the advertising world has given us. Here are a few vintage images of the Easter Bunny and Eggs mythology:
