Sunday Musings from Under the Steps: Talent Knows No Style

I think when two opposite forces, beings, cultures, styles collide something beautiful can come from it. I think the world of art and entertainment thrives on this.

Take Bing and Bowie as the perfect example...



Merry Christmas folks!

  1. It's weird but on paper Bing Crosby duetting with Bowie doesn't seem possible and yet look at this clip!! Wonderful! Take care

  2. I remember watching this show when it was first broadcast. As I recall, Bing Crosby died shortly after it was recorded.

    This is definitely a little Christmas treasure. It never fails to make me a little teary.

  3. A Holiday Thought...

    Aren't humans amazing? They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

    Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

    So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

    Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

    Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and once a year send out cards praying for "Peace on Earth."

  4. Old Kitty:I do love opposites in a match up. Hope your holiday went well!

    Dianne: I didn't know. I figured Bing was on in years in the clip. It really was a good, but odd match of talents.

    And...

    Anonymous: Humans truly are amazing. The acts of selflessness, bravery, ingenuity and kindness I have seen or heard of over the years gives me continued hope as to what the human race can accomplish and endure.

    What amazes me is how a person can be so short sighted to believe meat eaters are the cause of all the worlds woes. I am fairly certain there are plenty of radical folk who hide behind words like "compassion" to share this blame, my dear fellow human being.

    BTW, I like steak with my salad, leather to be soft and I'm an excellent shot. Cheers.
