Since I was unable to find much visual information on this musical I have used video clips of the dances of this era. The Girl Friend is a musical comedy with music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Lorenz Hart and book by Herbert Fields. This was the longest running show to date for the trio. The Girl Friend opened on Broadway at the Vanderbilt Theatre on March 17, 1926 and closed on December 27, 1926 after 301 performances. Produced by Lew Fields (Herbert's father), staged by John Harwood with musical staging by Jack Haskell, the cast starred Sammy White, Eva Puck and June Cochrane. White and Puck were married and well-known vaudeville performers of the time. Reviewers praised the humor, dancing, and the "captivating music." A cyclist trains on a wheel connected to a butter churn on his dairy farm. He is in love with the daughter of a professional cyclist. He is urged to enter a six-day race by questionable cycling promoter. Various gamblers try to cause him to lose, but he wins the race and the girl.
I think we had enough Winter :-) So I am sharing my personal photos from May of last year of the beautiful flowers at the Presby Iris Gardens in Montclair, NJ. Enjoy these moments of Spring ♥ The Essex County Presby Memorial Iris Gardens was established in 1927 to honor Frank H. Presby of Montclair, a leading horticulturalist and a founder of The American Iris Society. This living museum, listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Sites, offers a spectacular display of thousands of iris varieties to visitors from all over the world.

Sparrows(1926) was a film Mary Pickford starred and produced. Although quite dark, it is considered one of Pickford's best films and one of the best films ever made during the silent era. Evil Mr.Grimes keeps a rag-tag bunch of orphans on his farm deep in a swamp in the US South. He forces them to work in his garden and treats them like slaves. They are watched over by the eldest, Molly. A gang in league with Mr. Grimes kidnaps Doris, the beautiful little daughter of a rich man, and hides her out on Grimes' farm, awaiting ransom. When Mr. Grimes threatens to throw Doris into the bottomless mire, Molly must lead her little flock out through the alligator-infested swamp.

http://www.jamendo.com/en/list/a88019/at-the-gates-of-dawn Music~~~Light Among Shadows Chasing leftover of the warmth that exists no more two bodies clashing in a struggle to entwine their souls again The passion, sunk in an ocean too deep to explore What's gone won't become anything but grief and pain The key to salvation lies within our ourselves Through wastelands we wander trying to restore what was lost blinded and afraid of our own A dark void swallows everything that we touch Our dreams collapse as our heartbeats break apart Our hands feel no warmth without the will to go on a last glance in your eyes, there is nothing to fight for Through wastelands we wander trying to forget what was lost blinded and afraid on our own After the storm a still calm awaits no pain, no grief, no hope any more no hope anymore we are all alone Through wastelands we wander trying to restore what was lost blinded and afraid on our own

Time does change everything and not always for the better. Time does not always heal the pain of the people gone from our lives but serves to make the heart emptier. ╭☆╮....♥...╭☆╮....♥ ╭☆╮╭☆╮....♥...╭☆╮....♥ ╭☆╮ Nyctalgia was founded in winter 2007. The first demo called "Time Changed Everything" was released on 20th August 2009 and contains five songs of ambient and classical influenced Post-rock.
"Red Moon" talks about a man who experiences the consequences of his wrong decisions. He is completely abandoned and as not being able to find the real love, he talks to the moon and believes that the moon pays attention. At the same time, he warns the moon about the shadow of his vulnerable side and he tries to protect it. Although the man has made many wrong decisions in his life, he still keeps purity in his heart. This part of his heart was always well kept and never under negotiation for any reason. The hero of this story could be male or female, of any origin, social status and profession, it doesn’t matter. What’s important in this story is the moonlight, when it reveals the hidden wounds in order to expose or heal them, once and for all.

Blessed Samhain to my friends...Let Spirit speak to you and bring peace at this blessed season. )0( Samhain, (pronounced sow-in, ) means "End of Summer", and is the third and final Harvest. The dark winter half of the year commences on this Sabbat. Samhain is the beginning of the spiritual new year. It is time to release what is no longer needed, bring peace to your heart and soul. Celebrate renewal and transformation. Originating in ancient Europe as a Celtic Fire festival, Samhain is now celebrated worldwide. It is generally celebrated on October 31st, but some traditions prefer November 1st. It is one of the two "spirit-nights" each year, the other being Beltane. It is a magical interval when the mundane laws of time and space are temporarily suspended, and the Thin Veil between the worlds is lifted. Communicating with ancestors and departed loved ones is easy at this time, for they journey through this world on their way to the Summerlands.
I am featuring a romantic dance duet from the film You Were Never Lovelier a 1942 Hollywood musical comedy film, set in Buenos Aires. It stars Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth. This, the second of Astaire's outings with Hayworth, avoids wartime themes, and benefits from lavish production values – a consequence of the box-office success of the earlier You'll Never Get Rich. Kern here created a memorable standard with "I'm Old Fashioned", and there is a faultless trio of classic dance routines. Although Hayworth had a fine voice, Harry Cohn insisted on her singing being dubbed throughout by Nan Wynn. The film follows the usual conventions established by Astaire in his earlier musicals, such as an anti-romantic first meeting between the two leads, a virtuoso dance solo for Astaire, a playful dance duet and a romantic dance duet. Vocal by Nan Wynn....

Full Moon pictures & Ocean film clips are from my personal collection. Music~La Luna~By Zero Project Happy Full Moon Weekend! The full Moon is Friday, October 18.... October is the month of the Full Hunter's Moon. This is the first Full Moon following the Harvest Moon last month. Some Native American tribes referred to this Moon as the Full Hunter's Moon, as it was the time to go hunting in preparation for winter. It rises around sunset and sets around sunrise, the only night in the month when the Moon is in the sky all night long. This full Moon is also called the Travel Moon and the Dying Grass Moon.
A White Lady is a type of female ghost reportedly seen in rural areas and associated with some local legend of tragedy. White Lady legends are found around the world. Common to many of them is the theme of losing or being betrayed by a husband or fiancé. They are often associated with an individual family line. This video is made of photos from my personal collection (with overlays of fantasy images) from Ringwood Manor and the Shepard's Lake Area of Northwestern NJ, both locations of which the spirit world is existing according to area legends.
