Above: Noh - Stéphane Barbery | Flicker

From Wiki:  ”There are four major categories of Noh performers:  shite, waki, kyōgen, and hayashi.

Shite (仕手, シテ). In plays where the shite appears first as a human and then as a ghost, the first role is known as the maeshite and the later as the nochishite.

  • Shitetsure (仕手連れ, シテヅレ). The shite’s companion. Sometimes shitetsure is abbreviated to tsure (連れ, ツレ), although this term refers to both the shitetsure and the wakitsure.
  • Kōken (後見) are stage hands, usually one to three people.
  • Jiutai (地謡) is the chorus, usually comprising six to eight people.

Waki (脇, ワキ) performs the role that is the counterpart or foil of the shite.

  • Wakitsure (脇連れ, ワキヅレ) or Waki-tsure is the companion of the waki.

Kyōgen (狂言) perform the aikyōgen (相狂言) interludes during plays. Kyōgen actors also perform in separate plays between individual noh plays.

Hayashi (囃子) or hayashi-kata (囃子方) are the instrumentalists who play the four instruments used in Noh theater: the transverse flute (笛 fue?), hip drum (大鼓 ōtsuzumi) or ōkawa (大皮), the shoulder-drum (小鼓 kotsuzumi?), and the stick-drum (太鼓 taiko ). The flute used for noh is specifically called nōkan or nohkan (能管).

A typical Noh play always involves the chorus, the orchestra, and at least one shite and one waki actor.”

The Temper trap - Sweet disposition


Album: Conditions
Year: 2009
Genre: Indie pop

That’s one of those songs you listen to in your car while coming home or going on a trip. You drive by the places and see faces, streets, buildings, all passing by you so fast, and each of them seeming like a small piece of your day that just needed to be there. You recall some moments of your own life. Some good ones, some bad ones. The wind hits your face harder now, you remember the things that you were sure would last forever, and you remember the beauty of everything that is ephemeral too. This is life, and you’re here just living it.

Florence and the machine - Dog days are over


Album: [between two] lungs
Year: 2010
Genre: Alternative pop


Aaaaahhh how I love this song! The energy and the bliss just builds up within you in such an awesome way! Definitely my favorite song for just about everybody needing a break from all the shit in life. We all need to turn to our problems eventually and just go like “Look at all the fucks I give”; it’s human nature and we need some time to just chill and sing our lungs out!

I rarely ever do this but she melts my heart. Poor little baby Hope was chained up, doused in kerosene and set on fire by her owner who has since been arrested. She may have some permanent eye damage but that is the least of her struggles. You can donate here to help with her medical expenses so she can receive the treatment she needs. Every little bit counts so even though they have surpassed their goal I still suggest you donate even a tiny amount. I have zero tolerance for people who hurt innocent animals they are just sick and disgusting. What could this precious little baby have done to deserve such a thing? All I can say is he will get his and I hope it’s just as painful for him as it is for her.
DONATE TO HELP HOPE’S RECOVERY
