I finally figured it out

and it was not hard at all. I was waiting and waiting for when I felt real smart until I thought I would attempt to do a Youtube video on the site. Well, I found this one old song I had been looking for and the movie that went with it, The music is really what I wanted. SO, I just thought, I am going to figure this out. Well, it was so simple and it was staring me in the face every time I was on Youtube, I just never noticed it because it is small and no one ever told me about it.

Anyway, I have my first videos on the site now and I am very very happy. I have always wanted to do them when they were first beign done, but, I was afraid of the coding and embedding and this and that, I was unaware it was so simple. Please listen to the new music one I have up. it is titled "Eternally" and is the original music Charlie Chaplin wrote for his movie Limelight in 1952. It is a dear dear movie and a must to see. I did find the trailer to it, so that is up with the song. I am very happy now.

It is on my home page right on top. Oh, and an article about permaculture if you are into that...off the grid communities...I will have more up on those soon. Free energy and off the grid tools you need to live.
Just go to the index which is simply this url

Thanks, I am happy and feel like I am beginning to do things I have wanted to do for sharing for a long time.

Hey, I just noticed that ad looking thing, is that a real poster ad for Hillary for President to vote for her? Is she in Oz too making speeches or is this a google ad or what? I am confused here. I thought I was away from America here on the Grail with the Grailians (ryme with aliens).

That is a lovely piece of music, Colette, and I wish I could watch your video but I'm still on a dial-up service and that makes it impossible. Good luck with it anyway.

Oh thank you, I am so glad you like the music.wow it is so wonderful.

The music has a story behind it for me going back to me growing up in Vegas around all of the lovely music we had and me being a musician. I am a classical flautist. I still play and I play piano and guitar, but, not as much these days, did studio work and hung out in LA many years with many of the older artists.....Burton Cummings, Roger Pope, Quelib Quaye....wow, lots....Joe Pollard ( he invented syndrums) .....music is a big big part of my life and what was the main thing that helped me in understanding mathematical patterns or maybe I have a brain that works that way , but, music is part of the work I do on sympathetic vibrations....yak yak yak...I love Music.

This piece is very dear to me and reminds me of my grandmother's house. I got to go now to my doctor and will be gone all day and into the night. I may be able to write late tonight or tomorrow. But, I want to tell you about this music. It is soooooooooo beautiful and I am so happy I found the original scoring of it. There is nothing like music to take you places you want to go. I am a nostalgic and sentimental person.

It made me want to see that movie.

I mean, any movie in which a man gets to SLAP an hysterical woman should be worth watching, right?? ;-)

yes that Charlie Chaplin was gifted.
i remember in high school we used to go downtown a few times every month and buy albumns, i remember purchasing a neil sedaka albumn - since i like the oldies and that was the first time i hear song "smile" - at least his version of it.

i just loved the meaningfull lyrics in that song along with the harmony. i saw it was written by charlie chaplin but i thought it was another person with same name.

years later i found out it was him and and was truely impressed by how talented he was, shame how he force to leave the usa.

but neil sedaka did a wonderfull version of "smile", karen carpentar did a good one.

i looked on you tube - but you tube doesnt have the neil sedaka version - hopefully one day it will be there - otherwise i got to pull out the old albulmns out of storage.

but Charlie Chaplin was gifted in more ways that one.

its surprising that some of these actors are really talented in a few ways - one thing comes to mind like that movie samson and Delilah - movie with victor mature and Hedy Lamarr.

Hedy Lamarr also she co-invented "Spread-spectrum"
a key invention key in developing wireless that we all enjoy today - she wasnt just another pretty face.

seeing hows the site is called the holy grail - victor mature played in another great movie "the robe"

Charlie slapped TErry to get her to ehr senses so she would dance, so that kind of slap is oK and maybe some times needed-right?
HI, real quick until the morning -got home late, too tired to write.
I did not know Charlie wrote Smile, but, you know it does make sense. He had such a magnificent heart and intellect for spirit. He wrote from his heart that was filled with spirit and was able to be because his mind was filled with wisdom and he had the knowledge of technical , reading, writing, film, camera and so on to know how to produce a film using all of his abilities. Such a man----Interesting about Heddy, but,no I did not know that either about her physics mind. I like Victor Mature. I have the movie the Robe, taped it off the Turner Classic movies year s ago.
Hey, I was thinking of Jason and the Argonauts. They have that on youTube, the skeleton scene.Oh my god, that still horrifies me to see it. Jesus is it scary. Jesus,,,ooooph
Victor played Samson.....he played in those Italian moives too about swords and greek gods and beautifl women in chiffon castle dresses and cone hats (related to the EGyptian pharaohs! Needed to wear hats liek that to cover their elongated skulls)and tails flying in the wind. Oh, majic carpets. All of that, great stuff. The boy who flew on teh flying carpet, I forget hisname, Saboo? Something???

Well, got to go, in morning with coffee will write about music and grandma and things that are sentimental to me . I love music and films. Did a lot of film work in LA too. Acting, storyboards, painted screen sets at Culver City studios, bits parts and all....some costuming. It was great fun and so artful.
Modern day actors and actresses do not have the multiple skills of the early Californian Hollywood mogul grade studio stars. They were brought up being taught to dance and sing and to do many things. Now days, if a person can half way say a few lines but they look handsome or pretty doing it, they qualify. NOT Good. Better movies from the old days. Although there are the classics like Zhivago and Laurence of Arabia....wow and the scores to those films, incredible...incredible.

I have TO BE or NOT TO BE with Laurnce Oliveir speaking it, you can grasp the Shakspear real well as he speaks it plain and unaffected like some SHakespear Theater actors in a bouncing rythm. Olivier was very good. DO you know he and Vivian Leigh lived in an Abbey for their home and estate? I forget the name of it. I am not good with names - hum me a tune and I can tell you what it is, but the name - rarely.

Got to sleep ......maye have real nice dream now if I listen to that soft and lovely song......

Vegas was a town of flamingos, stars and the Milky Way and when you were lucky you would find yourself inside a casino lounge listening to the best music in the world. I would sit and watch the musicians in their tuxedos and think they were the most glamorous people in all of show business. Stand up bases and string sections were in savvy with flutes and saxophones, trumpets and trombones....trap sets...playing swing to orchestrated standards of a by gone era. There were always pretty ladies dancing around in their voluptuous evening dresses and men sipping martinis and looking suave. It was always a treat for me to listen to the music and I would dream of far away places and see James Mason or my other favorite movie stars in my mind. I wanted to be grown up so I could play the music and dance too - I wanted to have James Mason kiss me and take me to the center of the earth.

Grandma always prepared her food with great love and care. Her chicken soup was the best and my favorite and I could eat 3 bowls of it. When she would make fruit salad she would let me lick the whip cream out of the bowl before I cleaned it and make sure the beaters were licked free of all sweet cream too. My little room was all mine and my brothers were rarely in it. It was really her sewing room, but, had a bed in it that was mine and pictures on the wall of Paris and other places I could day dream to. She had beautiful jewelry and when I would be sad she would placed me on her bed in her room to sift through the jewels and that would calm me down. I would stare into the diamonds and they glistened and I wondered how did they do that and I would place my eyes close to the facets and try to see other images in the reflections. I wanted to be grown up and I listened to the music. The music that was playing was always Vegas music, the greatest music in the world.

When I was near 13 years old I suppose I was spending more time with grandma because my parents were separated. My father was in the Bahamas managing casinos and my mother was managing her wedding chapel. I wanted to be an adult. I wanted to be a lady in a nice dress and dance. I wanted to be able to play that music I heard that took me to far away places in my mind. I practiced my flute and piano daily. I was a protégé in the Las Vegas Youth Band and at that time sat first chair even though I was 7 years junior of the other flautists. We played 1812 Overture, Souza marches and love ballads, such as Laura and others of classical, standards and swing.

The one summer I sat in my room and looked at that picture of Paris and listened to the music I was determined to travel the world, play beautiful music and dance. It was THIS song I was listening to. I remember humming to it. Over and over in mind I kept wondering what lady was this that such a song could be written that was so apparent of beautiful sorrow and love? I asked grandma about this song and told her I would always remember it and it would be my song forever. I was going to be the lady in it and live out the song. I was going to go to Paris, I was going to dance and be in love. She told me it was "Eternally."

*****************

During the summer when Robert was here, we were on our way to see Caroline, a lady attorney friend of mine who is at the stage of her life where she could model my mother - but she has the love in her of my grandma. I love her very much. I always take Robert over to visit her and we have lunch and sit and yak. Well, it was during the time of the email frauds and working through some incredibly horrid times. I was very upset and sad, Robert was not doing well and he was nuts too. I walked into her office and she was playing music. This song was playing and I immediately jumped back into my room at my grandma's house and I felt safe and loved and that everything would be OK and a calm came over me and I melted. I asked her, "What is this song? What is this song? " and I was desperate to know as it was nagging me in my mind - a great feeling that I knew it so well and it was so very important to me, but, it had slipped by me as if oil were on my fingers tips and I just couldn't get a grip - the memory kept slipping away - I couldn't grasp the moment......She could not remember the name at the time and mentioned it was on a mix of tunes on her CD. We were in a hurry and had to leave for lunch as we were on a schedule. I was teary eyed and moody watching Caroline's actions and just adoring her for her grace and beauty. I was watching Robert. I was thinking and feeling many things - this song evoked so much feeling and thought from me. I began to realize I was a mature woman, this was the man in my life, this was what I was doing and I reflected on all of my travels and the things I had done in my life. I had visions of being in the recording studio, birthing my baby, of opening my first doctor office and going to Paris for the first time. There were moments I felt I had a good life and I did do some great things I was happy for and proud of. I was the lady I wanted to be when I was young.

Well, the lunch was Chinese with a bit of Irish because Bill was there to tell us of his childhood growing up in Ireland and we had a really flavorful chat. I wanted Robert to have a delightful time and I wanted to see laughter and smiles, I wanted to feel peace. We hurried back to the office. I kept playing that song in my mind and thinking of grandma and feeling as if something was right in front of me, but, I was looking through a transparency of my life and I was unable to see the true visions of what was in store for me to come. I only felt the impending pages, I could not read them. I spent the rest of the day with half my mind in a day dream humming the tune in my head over and over and allowing all of the feelings to erupt. It was cleansing and soothing and a calm came over me once the gargantuan tide of emotions came crashing over me. Time moved on and things drastically changed in my life the next few days to come. The song remained in my head haunting me and I used it as a focal point to maintain my rationale.

********************

A few days ago I went to Caroline's, I walked into her office and this song was playing. Tears came to my eyes, I asked her to pull the CD out of the player as I wanted to read the label to find out the name of the tune. There it was, "Eternally," - and I shot back into my little room at grandma's and I was looking at the picture of Paris and I was thinking about being a lady when I grew up and I was so overwhelmed by just how that little title could bring back so much and the promises I had made to myself. I thought once more of my life before I placed the CD back into the player........there was a pause and I asked Caroline,"Do you have any Neil Young?" There is this song, "A Man Needs a Maid," -it goes like this........"My life has changed in so many ways, I don't know who to trust any more. There's a shadow hanging over me like a beggar going from door to door......." and I cried. The smell of Caroline's perfume took me to gardens in Russia and I was far away again trying to find a calm. I thought of how fragrances can trigger memories as well........and then I got analytical....I was going to find out what "Eternally" was all about. "Caroline, what is it, what is it?" Caroline thought and said she remembered it to be known as Terry's Theme, but, that is all she could think of. I came home and did a search on the internet.

How was I to know "Eternally" was music to portray so closely my life? You see, I am that ballerina in Limelight who lost her legs and had a clown who.......

There is this song titled, "As Time Goes By" it.............

vegas - i havent been there for 20 years, was there 3 times in 80's - i hear its boomed and changed so much. i drove to grand canyon, valley of fire, saw a stray mule in middle of desert - nothin nearby - was wild- different terrain to say the least from az to death valley. and there was the thunderstorm - i couldnt believe how strong it was lol

i purchase one of those blue-stone indian necklaces in desert - i think near hover dam - my sister always worn it -and shes been so lucky -
but for me just be son of mom and dad is luck enough for me.

i think with life - everyone has there cross to carry, some bigger some smaller. and those of us that have been lucky to have given so much love are left with great pain in our hearts once its gone but lucky to have had the time with them.

but i know part of them lives on with us and that part with such strong roots should get us thru anything but the pain of them not around will never leave. i losted the closest ones dear to me too.

oh yes - and the part of the movies - old movies and old music truely does bring back memories, and a smile and does ease the pain

i think i was about 7 when i watch jason and the argos -
great flick - but those two creatures stealing the blind mans food scared me abit - but great scene with the army of bones. movies like ben hur, Ten Commandments just classics

you mention lawerenc o - he told her that he didnt think she was a great actress and then after gone with wind he admitted he was so wrong.
