This is my entry into this month’s PHC Top 3 contest.
This months topic is Road Trip!!
Road trips isn't something I get to do often with the kids. Actually, just traveling to the next town over seems like a mini road trip. But when we do go, as a parent and traveling with the kids, I have to make it enjoyable and make it an illusion so it doesn't seem like the traveling is the longest thing in the world, hoping to avoid the never ending "are we there yet". (Although I usually just answer that with, "I dunno, is the car parked and we're getting out?" "No" "Then drop it because we aren't there yet!")
|Once a year (This is going to be my 3rd year) I bring the kids to the Jocko Point Nipissing Pow Wow. It is the time of year that I am always extremely excited for. The grandmother drum banging strong in our hearts, the singing making our spirits dance, the regalia showing how beautiful each tribe is and that it is to be honored for its duty for healing, waking up the earth or sharing a story and prayer. So when we go, I get the kids all excited when we get close. It takes us 3.5 hrs to get there so the last hour, I crank up the volume and play this song and the kids just go crazy! Heads bobbing arms moving, bodies bouncing and feet tapping to the drum. I love it! This is why this track is my number 1 for road trips.|
|This is the one that usually follows the first one during the same road trip. I especially wanted to show you this as you get a sneak peak view of a Pow Wow. Love how strong this beat is and the style I think goes hand in hand with the first one. Another one of the kids favorite as well.|
|No 3||Now from time to time I do enjoy getting out on my own. Whether it be for walks, hikes, sitting by the water stream or even driving to do errands, and when that occasion strikes, I take full advantage of my time and I listen to the music that takes the other half of me. When driving, this is one track I play to the fullest! I even sing along and thank god no one is there to shut it off cause my singing, especially this style, would break some ears. Now before you say this is horrible music, I say first understand it. Now if you can't understand it, look up the lyrics and find the meaning to the song. This is one group of musicians that can really come up with things that need to be heard. Well, heard loud in this case :p But it brings power to the lyrics, it gives the feeling that he is trying to give off. Dani Filth, even though there are some that don't like him, is a very talented person with his vocals, from deep sounds to high pitch and a mean rawr. I love it! And the guitar riffs and, and, and, it just comes to get you! ♪ Tonight in flames, tonight the world will fear our names. Tonight in flaaaaaaaaaaaames, stay my feeble heart. Our deaths will be the start of something glorious and vain. Tonight in FLAAAAAAAAAAAAMES! Ner nenenerrr nener ner ner nenenerrr 🎸|
