Special Feature: Le Danse Macabre

We found this beautiful rendition of the Dance Macabre on YouTube…and though it would seem a natural pick to show at Halloween, it’s entirely too beautiful to keep to ourselves until then.

In a nutshell, the story of this musical piece is basically: on the eve of Halloween, “Death” plays a violin, beckoning the dead to rise from their graves on that night to dance for him until the rooster crows at dawn, then before the sun rises they must go back down into the grave and remain until the next year’s Halloween eve.

We liked the synced skeletons, dancing in unison and the music was especially nice.We got a little sad toward the end, knowing the spirits so enjoyed themselves, being free to dance— only to face the dawn — knowing it was over so soon…time to go back down. Just as in real life, it’s a pity when the party’s over.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…the work that this video’s creator put into this piece really shows.

Dance on, Friends!

If you happen to be in the Los Angeles area, you might be aware of the spectacular festivities that take place over at HOLLYWOOD FOREVER CEMETERY.

This is the 14th Annual L.A. Day of the Dead…I urge everyone to check out the link, at the very least…it is INCREDIBLE!  In fact, it’s a wonder any ‘official business’ (you know what I mean) is ever going on…judging from what I saw of the calendar of events,  The cemetery holds celebrities from the early days of Hollywood movies right up to the rock and roll age of the Ramones..it is a serious attraction for anyone who wants to tour the ‘Hollywoodland‘  area and maybe take in a movie or a concert, or Halloween event. 

HOLLYWOOD FOREVER appears to be a really lively place!

In fact, with thousands of folks celebrating until midnight, it’s enough to wake the dead!!

Eastern Lightning

Eastern Lightning, the Church of Almighty God was created because of the appearance and work of Almighty God, the second coming of the Lord Jesus, Christ of the last days. It is made up of all those who accept Almighty God’s work in the last days and are conquered and saved by His words. It was entirely founded by Almighty God personally and is led by Him as the Shepherd. It was definitely not created by a person. Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. God’s sheep hear God’s voice. As long as you read the words of Almighty God, you will see God has appeared.
