Depeche Mode's new single Heaven came out last week. I'm in love with Heaven. Musically DM has moved from synth to rock, and rock to synth...changing their tempo and tone. Having listened to their last album "Sounds of the Universe"non-stop since its release, I notice that DM enjoys changing their music. Changing it in ways that really keeps their original style and evolves into something uniquely their own, while playing homage to the blues genre. Heaven is another piece of art in the same evolutionary style. Heaven plays beautifully with such deep passion. It's a song that is hard to leave after you hear it.
The new Depeche Mode album is called Delta Machine and is available on 3.26.13

“I admire Walt Disney, I am charmed by Walt Disney, and I decided my career inspired by Walt Disney. And I met him in New York, or, I should say, I just walked past him. On the opening day of New York World’s Fair, https://www.google.com/culturalinstitute/beta/entity/m01vl17?categoryId=artist I was lucky enough to get a chance to talk to him. I came across him leaving the stage just after delivering the speech. I got nervous but somehow introduced myself to him. ‘I am a head of a Japanese animation studio.’ ‘Nice to have you here.’ ‘I am the one who made Astro Boy.’ ‘Really? I know Astro Boy. I saw the work in Los Angeles. It’s a great work.” ‘Thank you very much. My staff would be honored. Well, may I have your comment about the work?’ ‘It’s a very interesting Sci-Fi story. Future children are looking toward the space. So I, myself, think about making Sci Fi, too. If you have time, visit me in Burbank.’ (by Tezuka Osamu) Li
Poet and novelist May Sarton on letting go: "I think of the trees and how simply they let go, let fall the riches of a season, how without grief (it seems) they can let go and go deep into their roots for renewal and sleep... Imitate the trees. Learn to lose in order to recover, and remember that nothing stays the same for long, not even pain, psychic pain. Sit it out. Let it all pass. Let it go."
