After a while I realized I had heard Fink's voice before, on one of my other music sources: Stargate Universe

I believe I was impressed by at least one song on each episode of SGU. This is an entire album by Fink with the song I remember, played first and the title song: Sort of Revolution, followed by Move on Me

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGz7O8JGDTc
I've just listened to the entire album and I'd like to share some of my thoughts and feelings. The Fink's voice sounds sometimes like a Sting's one to me. Overall character of the songs also reminds me somehow the mood of "The Police", in some songs there we can hear reggae rhythm, in others we hear blues or even soul.

Summing all of these up, it was a great pleasure to listen to the Fink's album. Smile

Referring to "harvest" I have something what may be interesting to some of you from the historical and music points of view. Wink

For the comparison, harvest in Poland in 1974 and 2013. Both videos are accompanied by melodies that in my opinion fit very well to them:
  1. ImageImageImage Maryla Rodowicz - Urodzajny rok (A Fecund Year)
  2. ImageImageImage Rudimental ft. Ella Eyre - Waiting All Night

You are exactly in the age of my mother then, the same generation. Smile


The Math is strong with you! I had the same disagreement with people about when the 20th century ended. I said after Dec 31 2000! My position was that the "first" year of our current counting system was year '1' Therefore, 1st century ended after year 100. Not involving Pope Gregory XIII.

Physically, just turned 60; Mentally, early 20's.

Once again, thanks for Tanita Tikaram recommendation! I've been listening to at least one song each day. Each song different, yet equally pleasing.

That's fantastic if you feel this way. As you may have noticed, we all here were a bit surprised by your (metrical) age because your mind / soul seems to be so "hungry" of new (music) impressions... Wink

I'm glad you like her songs. She has got a very unique and uncommon timbre of voice. Smile

YONG, I think that farrier is only 60-61 years old because he told that he "just began" the 7th decade of life.

The 7th decade of life spans from the beginning of 60 till the end of 69.

0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 y.o. - 1st decade of life
Haha ... I misunderstood farrier's meaning. Razz

However, I think we need to be very specific about the cut-off dates:

1st decade = [date of birth, 10th birthday]
2nd decade = [10th birthday, 20th birthday]
3rd decade = [20th birthday, 30th birthday]
...
7th decade = [60th birthday, 70th birthday]

Urodzajny rok 1974 "A Fertile Year" is a perfect example of late 60's early 70's feel good rock, really enjoyed it. The video looks like our little part of the world. Corn harvest mostly done; currently rice and soybeans; and soon, cotton and sorghum. For most it's been a good growing season. We can grow just about anything in the topsoil left behind by millions of years of the Mississippi river flooding!

I don't want to go too deep into details but if you want to split one's lifetime with an accuracy of one day (not an hour, minute or second) you should decide to which of neighboring decades belongs the day of 10th, 20th etc. birthday.

Otherwise it may lead to a paradox, for example: 10th birthday would belong as well to the first decade of life as to the second one.

The partition proposed by you consists of closed intervals [a, b] where the more proper would be use of right half-open intervals [a, b). If we would use right half-open intervals we could avoid of improperly classified bordering dates belonging to two consecutive intervals, so we should write it this way:
Quote:
1st decade = [date of birth, 10th birthday)
2nd decade = [10th birthday, 20th birthday)
3rd decade = [20th birthday, 30th birthday)
...
7th decade = [60th birthday, 70th birthday)
what can be denoted in other way using closed intervals and days preceding "10*k-th birthdays" (where k = 1, 2, 3, ...) which we can name as 10*k-th birthday eve:
Quote:
1st decade = [date of birth, 10th birthday eve]
2nd decade = [10th birthday, 20th birthday eve]
3rd decade = [20th birthday, 30th birthday eve]
...
7th decade = [60th birthday, 70th birthday eve]

This song is awesome, I like its enchanting atmosphere. I found an excellent, poetic translation of the lyrics to Polish made by Małgorzata Skibińska:

http://poema.pl/publikacja/108730-taniec-kolednikow-the-mummers-dance

http://www.tekstowo.pl/piosenka,loreena_mckennitt,the_mummers_dance.html

The style of versification, the rhythm of the poem somehow reminds me of the style the great Polish poet Bolesław Leśmian (1877-1937):

Very Happy Cool It used to be even better before everything grown around here has been genetically modified to resist Glyphosate "RoundUp" We could grow a garden with enough food to feed ourselves and all the neighbors, but if you try to grow tomatoes, beans, squash, or any typical vegetables, they will be burned or curled up. Glyphosate has just about eliminated the need to cultivate the land after planting, which saves big bucks and eliminates most erosion, but it will kill almost everything not GM.

My family grew up dirt poor in the hills above the Mississippi Delta, and moved to the Delta to farm in the late 1940's. Now we are buying places back in the hills to escape the chemicals and grow a garden. Also much quieter! I still live in the middle of a corn field, last year it was a cotton field, year before that, a soybean field.
