憶兒時  (Waiting for yesterday)

憶兒時 (Waiting for yesterday)
Composer: W. S. Hays
Sung by Xena Crystal LCH #146

春去秋來 歲月如流 遊子傷漂泊
回憶兒時 家居嬉戲 光景宛如昨
茅屋三椽 老梅一樹 樹底迷藏捉
高枝啼鳥 小川游魚 曾把閒情託
兒時歡樂 斯樂不可作
兒時歡樂 斯樂不可作

Crystal Huang @Valerie, I thought about that too. Fecund? ( I saw quadruplet before) ?? Maybe her sisters-in-law asked her to babysit a couple of rambunctious kids for a a while ? That could motivate her to be the best entertainer for herself and babies' sake?

酒 は 涙 か 溜 息 か Is Sake tears or sighs? (a Japanese oldie)

Composer: 古賀政男
Lyricist : 高橋掬太郎 
Singer: Xena LCH #142

酒は涙か 溜息か
心のうさの 捨てどころ

遠いえにしの かの人に
夜毎の夢の 切なさよ

酒は涙か 溜息か
かなしい恋の 捨てどころ

忘れた筈 の かの人に
のこる心を なんとしょう


ここに幸あり / 幸福在這裡 (Happiness Found, Japanese and Taiwanese Mandarin versions)

Singer: Xena LCH #143

嵐も吹けば 雨も降る 女の道よ なぜ険し
君を頼りに 私は生きる ここに幸あり 青い空

誰にもいえぬ 爪のあと 心にうけた 恋の鳥
ないてのがれて さまよい行けば 夜の巷の 風かなし

命のかぎり 呼びかける こだまのはてに 待つは誰
君によりそい 明るく仰ぐ ここに幸あり 白い雲

作詞:易鳴 ; 編曲:黃瑩, 陳飛午

我的幸福在這裡 因為這裡有你 從此不再尋萬里 我不願再分離

雖然遠方更壯麗 我只要和你相依 秀麗的遠方不及 和你在一起

我的愛情在這裡 因為這裡有你 從此不再走天涯 我不願再分離

雖然彼岸更美麗 我只願和你相依 明媚的彼岸不及 和你在一起

Aug. 11 (T), 2015. Have you even seen 1-dimensional men?

What kind of society would bring up the greatest happiness?

A short note: Undeniably, utilizing modern tech is an important part of my life (one of my majors). There are many manifest functions, unanticipated functions (potentially positive and negative) embedded in this Gigantic Leviathan.

Postmodern Information technology absorbs the extra man-power left over from the unemployed/underemployed of the industrial societies, including knowledge and culture industries. Technocratic thinking and consumption replace critical reasoning capacity, functioning like opiate of the masses - embracing repressive consumption in a pleasant way, like me in the above photo :)!

July 31 (F), 2015 This time, Not Cecil-the-Lion, but Cecil-the-Suffering Pigs-in-the-Truck...

Crystal Huang shared Best Video You Will Ever See's video.
48 mins · Edited ·

A very touching yet short video: (What is humanity?)
These youngsters just did what they could! Under the heat, in the crowded truck, before their death, these will-be-slaughtered pigs were suffering from thirst, pains, and agony. A young lady found that nothing else she could do except giving one of the dying pigs last care and comfort heart emoticon! I think they are either vegetarians or vegans ?

(Note: Cooking without the flavor of non-human sentient beings added is very tasty and healthy to me. Many delicious recipes provide important nutrients and wonderful tastes without adding other non-human life forms. It is hard to imagine why consuming other lives' agony, pains, and suffering is necessary to human health/ethics. Without hurting the meat industries, there are many alternative ways to create proper profits and humane/healthy diet for most of human beings.)



Best Video You Will Ever See uploaded a new video.

It's hard to believe that humanity supports this reality.
Shameful. Outrageous. Inexcusable.

Crystal Huang @Susan, sometimes, it can refer to supply and demand. If no demand, there will be hard to supply. Some artificial consumption is based on man-made ideology to reinforce the meaningless and heartless consumption. Yes, we need to wake up through collective voices and actions!

Crystal Huang @Susan, I cannot watch either. Just know the info... I do sense a great magnitude of awareness from people via positive usage of social media to inspire good things to happen. Note, I tend to post this type of info gingerly, because a couple groups of my fb friends feel "offensive"...

Coincidentally, I Just found a picture matching my Blog post well. So posted here too. In addition to Cecil-the-beloved-Lion, there are millions of Cecil-the-suffering-sentient-beings devoured by human-sentient-beings...

Crystal Huang Do you know how many Factory/Farm non-human-sentient-beings are consumed annually? Meat is tasty, too, and most importantly, very very Irresistible... to please and satisfy the meat industries' wants (not needs).
