A Kadazan version of the song Dayung Sampan by a female singer.

This song is the same singer.

"Mary Poppins Returns", which I quite liked. A big plus: Disney finally managed to stop smothering the singing voices in Autotune. So my ears say equal parts "Thank you" and "It's about time". [:D] :roll:

Happy 2019! Let's hœp it's a good'un!!!!! [:D]

Been listening to old Taiwanese pop music. Just kind of randomly stumbled upon on it on YouTube. I've heard music like this before at Asian markets, but never paid much attention to it until now:

龍飄飄 - 聽說你要走

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Whrps1L6RX0

There's just something very pleasant about it.

Is anyone else watching "The Orville"?

But it never gets any more true,
So close your eyes once more and once more believe
That they all still believe in you.

Wow - Wow - WHOA - æ!

Thanks, LSD!

Very noice! [:'(]
this ditty from ole Ry Cooder sounds like a molto mæstuoso version of variations on the bridge of Old Black Water by the Doobie Brothers.

Aboslutely [<3] [<3] [<3] [<3] [<3] Ry Cooder, especially his thirsty, rusty, yearning Tatooinesque soundscapes on Buena Vista Social Club, and even as far back as the warm smoldering fire of his layered acoustic guitarwerk on the Monkees (yes… the Monkees') As We Go Along).

I see ur Ry Cooder, and raise you a laid back instrumental Doobie Bros~

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ax5P383dZ2c
hœp it doesn't offend ur æsthetics!

And an instrumental (!) version of As we go along
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_EoDABkK9Y

Old Black Water, keep on rolling…

[:)]

PS:
Okay, although it goes against my take on the recentmost schneefall outside, here's
Chan Chan from Buena Vista Social Club w/ Ry Cooder's snaky, hypnotic slide guitar, along with a Justice League's worth of late great Cuban lost-but-found Superestrellas:

Gawd, I wish! [:S]
Looks pretty darn funny!! But also good in a serious/coherent storytelling way, too. [:D]

A worthy Star Trek successor ? :wat:

I'd definitely say so. It reminds me a lot of ST:TNG, but with a big dollop of funny. I think they've managed to balance the type and amount of humour with the kind of sci-fi they were aiming for as well (exploring not just space, but also various social issues). They've covered life on a generation ship (where the inhabitants don't realise they're on one), a planet being ripped apart by the expansion of its host star, another planet that phases in and out of our universe and another, 2D space, a society ruled by "upvotes" and "downvotes", the effects of relatively low gravity on an individual's health, gender issues, "cultural contamination" (I think that's actually a Star Trek term), parenting, relationships, etc. Funny, but gets you thinking as well.

A number of people who have worked on The Orville also worked in some way on various Star Trek series (mostly TNG, ENT, DS9 and VOY). For example, Brannon Braga and David Goodman are executive producers, as well as writing alongside André Bormanis, and directing with Jonathan Frakes, Robert Duncan McNeill, and James Conway. I think MacFarlane has also said in several interviews that he was a fan of Star Trek, and has managed to work with the cast of TNG several times on Family Guy and American Dad. Throw that together and you can kind of see why The Orville has a distinctly 90s/00s Star Trek feel to it.

I found that Star Trek: Discovery felt more like the more recent films (heavy lens flare, dark lighting, all about the fast action and big explosions, but in space), so if you're a fan of 90s/00s Star Trek you might end up feeling that The Orville feels more like Star Trek than the current Star Trek series.

It's about time a scifi series tackles 'interacting' sort of with the Second Dimension.

Has the new series of Doctor Who ever done so?

YES! Definitely a Galaxy Quest feel to it, but I think it walks the line of sci-fi and comedy a bit better. I'd recommend it either way, and I almost never recommend TV series.

As far as I know, New Who hasn't really tackled any sort of "different number of dimensions" beyond mentioning that being the way the TARDIS being bigger on the inside works. When New Who tends to mention "dimensions" it's more along the lines of pocket universes or alternate timelines.

Oo, actually, there were the Boneless, from Capaldi's run as Twelve, but I can't remember much about them other than "3D lifeforms can't survive in a 2D form, because of course they can't".

"Homecoming"

[it's annoying, though: I think Richter needs to hold back slightly in a few places that I think he rushes through too quickly... but in every other respect he's so much better than any other recording that once you've heard his version it's hard to tolerate all the others...]

on the road again
find in yourself the measurement of the whole universe…
I had been on a tour of England and Wales with my College Choir, the "Ca the Yowes" Tour of 1990, and we were cramped in a tour bus being silly, and someone took a pic of me contorted into almost the same pose, but with what looks like me crawling out from out of the triangle of my legs. Very M.C. Escher!

Heia…
Oh, to have that pic once more!
Oh oh, to be able to contort like that once more!
Oh, Ca those yowes once more
from flinty Bishhopstœn strands of yore!
Bend back to years that I adored~

Heia…
