The Crossing by Cormac McCarthy (Book Review)

The Crossing, the second book in Cormac McCarthy’s the Border trilogy, continues the trend of self-reflection in the aftermath of grief. All 3 books may be depressing in some instances, but this also gives them room to engage in lots of soul-searching reflection on the meaning of life. 1,445 more words

"In a Big Country" - 來自蘇格蘭的風笛聲

聰叔叔:  聰叔叔與炯叔叔温叔叔識於微時,一起吃喝玩樂多年。中學後分道揚鑣勇闖美國加拿大英國,廿年後再聚首一堂。喜歡懷舊,但也樂於接受新事物;喜歡80年代音樂,但也不抗拒新時代音樂,因為不想變成一件老餅。

“In a Big Country”是一首正能量滿瀉的歌。

1983年推出的”In a Big Country”,是蘇格蘭搖滾樂隊Big Country的首張專輯”The Crossing”裡的第三張single,亦是他們最成功和最為人熟悉的一首歌。內容是關於主角如何去鼓勵身邊那位意志消沉的朋友,要他走出陰霾,重新振作,希望在明天。如果你有朋友需要你的開解和鼓勵,送他這首歌是一個不錯的選擇。論正氣的程度,此曲好比我們七、八十年代的「前程錦繡」、「一點燭光」、「喝采」等等,但加了一點點”型”。

歌中的每一句歌詞都是安撫和鼓勵人心的説話,看看其中一段:

So take that look out of here, it doesn’t fit you. 不要老是苦著臉,這個樣子並不適合你。 98 more words
