LEGEND SOCCER COMPANY
Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

THE BIRTH OF A WOODEN HOUSE

No nails or screws were used, only hand tools, plus a treasure trove of knowledge that he gathered himself, and a helluva lot of muscle. Truly a work of 3-D art. Beautiful and awesome work.

I want one just like it.

YES!!! Nice one; I love Pentatonix so much.

I've been listening to their Christmas albums all season long:

Flyngirl, do you have the Christmas album with this song? If so, I have a question. There are 5 singers and this version of the song has 5 verses. One singer doesn't sing a verse and one verse is missing from the song the way they sing it.

I was wondering if they actually included the missing verse on the album but omitted it from YouTube because it is sexual in nature. I listened to Jeff Buckley at YouTube and he does include the missing verse, but these are his lyrics so that may make a difference.


Here are the lyrics:

https://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/jeffb...allelujah.html


and here is Jeff Buckley singing Hallelujah. He hits the fourth verse at about 3 minutes 50 seconds:

I thought it was a Rufus Wainwright (sp?) tune... yeah, I have all 3 albums (this is on the latest one, "A Pentatonix Christmas") and that verse is omitted from the album too. I actually never cared for that verse... thought it took away from the message of the song (at least, the way I've interpreted it). It didn't need the sexual component, and the other part of the verse is redundant, taking away from the poignancy of the final verse. There's my deep thought. Lol

So it was definitely the group who chose to leave it out.

It's a beautiful song, but SNL/Kate McKinnon completely ruined it for me with her sappy tribute to Clinton in the cold opening after the election.

It was Leonard Cohen that actually wrote the original. Here are the lyrics to his version. About midway it starts to differ:

https://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/leona...allelujah.html



Apparently Jeff Buckley decided to do it his way and changed it quite a bit. Pentatonix sing his version, except for the 4th verse.


Now, have you heard this version:

And since we're on a music high, perhaps you have missed this - though it's still delightful:

The other song is nice too -- I never realized quite how many Starbuck montages had been put to music on YouTube! LOL... I guess Dirk does have one of those faces that inspires a montage.

This little person has to be the reincarnation of a very talented person.
He's captivating, and nothing short of phenomenal. When the camera is
in front of him, you can see the audience clearly; the
orchestra and the music are secondary to the kid.
OH EM GEE, he is a joy to watch. Especially near the end.



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v436...e#t=588.846439

There are more videos of him.
