  1. A playlist I find myself listening to more and more often on Spotify is COFFEE + CHILL . Great for morning chilling and driving. Has A lot of Acoustic and artists like Angus and Julia Stone:
    Example on today’s playlist

    The only time I have ever been in a Tesla, I was impressed with the built-in Spotify that responds when one tells it what to play…this was the first time that I had encountered this feature. How nice to just say the name of a song and have it come out through that amazing sound system. The Tesla’s price is a bit of a turn-off, though. Maybe if I win Lotto….

        No. If you don’t know what a Tesla is, google it. I am surprised that you would confuse it with a Ford Telstar.

          Ignore Blazer Kitty, s/he is up to their usual tricks. I’d love to take a Tesla for a spin myself…

            The way they start up is great fun-it’s like a ride at the fair. One second you’re not moving, the next you’re going 60 (or 100, but we were not somewhere where that could happen) Needless to say that a few rude words are heard 😀

    • I love Spotify and I’d be keen to run it through a Tesla. ❤️

        If I win Lotto tonight, we can go for a spin in my Tesla and play whatever we like.

        ‘Oh, Tesla, dear, do play………. for us.’

  3. Be still my heart.

    Thank Hughie for that Aaron Smith. All is forgiven. Have as many toilet assignations as you like.

    This kid is one helluva musician. Does covers of all sorts, this is one of my favs…

      Another from Doug Hanson. The original of is a lot heavier, but this version does it justice IMHO. How he can master the drumming, bass, & three guitar parts, then dub them all together perfectly is almost unbelievable. Much respect…

    I posted an instrumental version of this last night, and the original just ‘popped up’ on autoplay. A great, really meaningful song, and an excellent music video, that reminds me why I love my ‘ataahua wahine’. Enjoy…

    We all have a weakness
    Some of ours are easier to identify
    Look me in the eye

    And ask for forgiveness
    We’ll make a pact to never speak that word again
    Yes, you are my friend

    We all have something that digs at us
    At least we dig each other
    So when weakness turns my ego up
    I know you’ll count on the me from yesterday

    If I turn into another
    Dig me up from under what is covering
    The better part of me

    Sing this song
    Remind me that we’ll always have each other
    When everything else is gone
    Oh, oh, oh

    We all have a sickness
    That cleverly attaches and multiplies
    No matter how we try

    We all have someone that digs at us
    At least we dig each other, oh
    So when sickness churns my ego up
    I know you’ll act as a clever medicine

    If I turn into another
    Dig me up from under what is covering
    The better part of me

    Sing this song
    Remind me that we’ll always have each other
    When everything else is gone
    Oh, each other when everything else is gone

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    If I turn into another
    Dig me up from under what is covering
    The better part of me

    Sing this song
    Remind me that we’ll always have each other
    When everything else is gone
    Oh, each other (sing this song) when everything else is gone
    Oh, each other, when everything else is gone

    Something different, for the night owls. The special effects in this clip are nothing short of amazing. A cartoon done in ‘real world’, but obviously not the real world.
