#4M Sci-Fi Movie or TV Show Mewsic

 

Thank you for including me in your Monday, kittens & dawgs and for joining m for the best dance party in Blogosphere with the “Monday’s Music Moves Me” that I co-host along with these incredible ladies, Marie, Stacy, and Colette.  This week’s theme is “Sci-Fi Movie or TV Show Mewsic”



 

 

 

I opened with A Place in Time used for the popular short-run TV series, The 4400.  I love this song and I own.  Today, I’m sharing with you theme mewsic for some of my favorite sci-fi TV series.  All of these programs are available on Netflix streaming other than my last selection and it’s on Amazon Prime.

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed my sci-fi picks and I can’t wait to listen to your selections.

What sci-fi mewsic moves you? ?

Thank you for joining me today. The past couple of weeks have been a bit stressful and with DH’s eye surgery last Thursday then I’m really wiped out! He’s doing good after his retina re-attachment surgery but we learned he’ll more than likely need cataract surgery in that eye within six months and there’s always the possibility for a retina detachment reoccurrence in the same eye. Please remember DH in your prayers. Alrighty, folks the rest of the week I’m preparing for the A2Z challenge and won’t be hanging out in Blogosphere but I hope you’ll decide to you join me on Saturday for Art Sketching Through the Alphabet!

A Place in Time #AmandaAbizaid #music

Amanda was born in Beirut, Lebanon to an American mother and Mexican/Lebanese father. All before her 10th birthday, she traveled the Middle East and Europe with her family before moving to the United States with her mother, brother, and four sisters. She and her sisters formed a band. That’s where she developed a talent for harmony. Her exposure to music comprises of a Middle Eastern flavor influenced by late 70s American sounds of Alice Cooper, Elton John, Crosby, Stills, and Nash, and The Beatles. The singer – songwriter vocals are best known for The 4400 opening theme song.

 

The song that peaked my curiosity, A Place in Time….

 

 

I’m really hooked on this tune so much so that I had to download it from iTunes. Her interesting sound captured my attention and I wanted explore more of her music. I invite you to dance this way for a little ear candy.

The 4400 complete series is on Netflix. We just started watching the show. Are you familiar with the USANetwork sci-fi program?

What appears to be a comet slows, hovers and stops, then bursts forth to reveal 4,400 people who were presumed dead or missing over the past 50 years. They look exactly the same as the moment they disappeared, but some of the returnees now have special powers.

In 2011, Amanda released Be in Love that includes 8 original songs. This morning, I’m sharing with you the first track, Be In Love With Me Again

I listened to all of the songs and narrowed it down two other tracks worth mentioning This Woman Stays & Goodbye For Now and I invite you to listen to.

Moving on, I found this song while surfing YouTube. Oddly, I couldn’t find it on iTunes. It’s possible it’s an oversight on my part, but listen to Dreams in Ashes.

This past April, Someday Girl,Vol 2 (available on iTunes) released. Amanda captures a similar essence to The 4400 theme song, as well a kinda jazzy overtone which I liked a lot. If there is a volume 2 then there has to be a volume 1, but iTunes didn’t have Someday Girl, Vol 1 listed, but I found it on YouTube.  So, all is good and so is the album.

Anywho, here is She Runs from Someday Girl, Vol 2!

NEW book release A Silent Soliloquy by #LGKeltner

First off many apologizes L for not getting this out yesterday. I swear, my attention span is of a gnat. Anywho, kittens and dawgs I’m wanna pitch her latest book set to release July 6th!

Final Silent Soliloquy Cover

Cover by Devross

 

What’s it about? Here’s a nibble for you…

 

TIPPIE was created to be a weapon. By all appearances, she’s an ordinary girl of 18, and she uses that to her advantage in her work for The Facility. What no one sees is that there’s another girl buried deep inside. She can’t speak or control the movements of the body she inhabits. As TIPPIE’s silent passenger, she can only observe. She uses the details she learns from TIPPIE’s work to reconstruct the stories of other people’s lives. It helps her feel a little more connected to the world she can only watch.

When TIPPIE’s work leads her to David, a young man with a haunted past and information that The Facility wants, TIPPIE uses her skills to earn his trust. The silent girl beneath the surface knows that TIPPIE is only going to hurt him, but she can’t help but feel for him. Those feelings only grow, but she knows all too well that TIPPIE’s work will soon come to an end.

 

Are you curious about the author? I like for you to meet my new friend…L.G. Keltner!

L is like many of us, she spends most of her time trying to write while also cleaning up after her crazy but wonderful kids and hanging out with her husband. Her favorite genre of all time is science fiction, and she’s been trying to write novels since the age of six. Needless to say, those earliest attempts weren’t all that good. Her non-writing hobbies include astronomy and playing Trivial Pursuit.  You can typically find L.G. lurking around her blog, on Twitter, or on her Facebook page.

 

Did A Silent Soliloquy snippet leave you wanting more? I hope you’re saying yes because L tells me that you can pre-order a copy of her intriguing Sci-Fi book at either Amazon US or  Amazon UK.

 

 

You can do a huge favor for L by simply sharing this mews and on her behalf I’ll say, thank-you my lovelies for being the very bestest!
