MY HOMEMADE AMATEUR VIDEO RECORDINGS

***********************************************************
***********************************************************
Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

For the best effect, please enjoy watching, in "FULL SCREEN" mode, this automated video series of a collection of my homemade amateur video recordings of ME (!) performing MY ORIGINAL COMPOSITIONS, consisting mostly of songs and poetry I wrote, with a wee attempt at a bit of comedy thrown in.



For the best effect, please enjoy watching, in "FULL SCREEN" mode, this automated video series of a collection of my homemade amateur video recordings of ME (!) performing some of my ASSORTED FAVORITE SONGS that other people wrote and recorded.



On each of these collections of my homemade amateur video recordings, you have the option of either watching the entire series, as it automatically plays one video right after the other, and/or watch only selected individual homemade amateur video recording(s) by merely specifically choosing any one (01) or more of my homemade amateur video recording(s) in that collection.

If you watch my homemade amateur video recordings at the YOU TUBE web site, you'll be able to see the lyrics posted in the space directly below each of my posted homemade amateur video recordings.

These homemade amateur video recordings are not in any particular order, but are all mixed up.

Folks, I'm merely an unknown amateur, and I don't make any money from any of this.

I reckon if it weren't for the invention of personal computers and the establishment of the Internet (which I personally regard as divine gifts from our Almighty God), no one would ever hear my songs. 

Thank you for watching.

"THE SOUNDS OF SILENCE"

Composed by: PAUL SIMON

                 (1964)

Hello darkness, my old friend.
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sounds of silence.

In restless dreams, I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone.
'Neath the halo of a streetlamp,
I turned my collar to the cold and damp,
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sounds of silence.

In the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more;
People talking without speaking,
People hearing without listening,
People writing songs that voices never share.
No one dare
Disturb the sounds of silence.

"Fools", said I, "You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you.
Take my arms that I might reach you."
But, my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence.

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made,
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming,
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls,
And whispered in the sounds of silence."

ALMA CAPPS MALLERNEE (1917 - 2017)

ALMA CAPPS MALLERNEE

Comrades in Arms:

Attached to this very sad e-mail message is a 1.05 megabytes color photograph, in JPEG format, of my father, Master Sergeant William Vincent Mallernee, United States Army (Retired), and my stepmother, Alma Capps Mallernee, who was numbered among the FIRST (!), as she was the one hundred and fourth female to enlist in the United States Army's newly created Women's Auxilliary Army Corps, where she served honorably throughout the Second World War, watching the skies over Florida for enemy aircraft.

Please click on this Internet link, "MY STEPMOTHER, ALMA CAPPS MALLERNEE ! ! !", to read about the life of Alma Capps Mallernee.


DADDY AND ALMA

This morning, I received a telephone call from Glenn Capps in Fayetteville, North Carolina, a cousin of Alma Capps Mallernee, informing me that she had passed away in her sleep this very morning, Sunday 19 February 2017.

Her funeral, with full military honors, is expected to be Wednesday or Thursday of this week, with burial alongside of Daddy and Mama in the Riverview Memorial Gardens at Spring Lake, North Carolina.

A genuine American heroine, Alma Capps Mallernee, who resided at Heritage Place in Fayetteville, North Carolina, is a recipient of the Good Conduct Medal, the Women's Army Corps Medal, the American Campaign Medal, and the World War II Victory Medal.

In only one more month, she would have become one hundred years old, and boy, was I ever planning a BIG fuss over her, with a party, and presents, and coverage by television and newspapers!

Unfortunately, due to my own physical infirmities, I'll be unable to attend her funeral.

Please share this information with other military veterans.

Thank you.

At Your Service,
