N.E.R.D.’s new track “hypnotize u” is sexy, lazy, delicious

N.E.R.D. back with a sexy, slow, synth track produced by Daft Punk.

N.E.R.D. returns with this sexy track produced by Daft Punk. It’s a lazy, yet sexy, slow, synth track produced by none other than Daft Punk. It’s off their new album “Nothing”. My analysis: Pharrell, Chad and Shae have given us yet another genre-bender, accessible, hip dance songs. That is all.

Don Alney’s POV: Himachal Pradesh – a Dream from a Poem

Village Headman's Wife by Don Alney

My Himachal odyssey is complete, and I head for Chandigarh to catch my flight home.

I reflect on my fleeting sojourn through this state in India, and softly, very softly, like a paper lantern on a night wind, I relive my journey, my eyes feelin disconnected to my body, yet linked to my heart. I realise that I have been exposed to an awe-inspiring kaleidoscope of scenic splendour, serenity, and serendipity. I have seen the sparkle and heard the murmur of mountain streams. I have walked on narrow pathways through lush forests exploding in a thousand shades of green. I have watched glorious sunsets behind towering peaks. I have stood in ancient temples and heard the haunting whispers of their timeless silence. However, my most deeply cherished memories of Himachal are the laughter and camaraderie, the graciousness, and the warm hospitality of its gentle and happy people, which I was privileged to share.

And somewhere in Himachal, I lost my heart.

The Cove – Shocking, Saddening. Why are 23,000 dolphins being killed every year in Japan?

Watched “The Cove” last night. Shocking. Here’s a clip. I encourage you to watch it. It’s gut wrenching. Visceral. Saddening. Too many emotions to describe.

Through John Bragg’s Eyes: Vienna

Vienna by John Bragg

Vienna is a fantastic city.  Whether you want to visit a restaurant like Brezel-Gwölb that claims to have invented the pretzel, eat world-famous Sachertorte cake at the Sacher Café,  visit the 700 year old St. Stephen’s Cathedral, learn the history of the Lipizzaner Horses or tour the Schönbrunn Palace, there is plenty to see and do.  It’s a bustling, clean city that is very inviting and easy to get around by tram, buses, subway or your feet.

John Bragg travels the world. He’s a photographer by vocation. He’s a story teller who catalogs his encounters with architecture, food, and people. His work has been featured in national and international publications.
