開けずに麺を引っ張り出せる吹きこぼれ防止フタ

「スチームケース」で知られるルクエ社(スペイン・バルセロナ)の
吹きこぼれ防止フタ「ノンスピル」が人気です。
日本では2013年1月初旬からデパート・ 大手雑貨店・量販店などの店頭に並び、
2月にテレビ番組で紹介されると人気が沸騰。
売り切れ店が続出し、供給が間に合わず、一時は欠品状態になっていた。
その後、順調に売り上げを伸ばし、5月20日現在で
当初の販売計画を上回る1万3000個を超えるヒットとなっている。




「ルクエ ノンスピル」

「ルクエ ノンスピル」2100円、直径270mm×高さ40mm、
カラーはクリア、レッド、ライム、ローズの4色。
プラチナシリコン製、耐熱温度220℃・耐冷温度マイナス30℃、
対応鍋サイズは直径18cm~25cm

使い方は簡単。
パスタなど麺類や米、サトイモ、牛乳など、吹きこぼれやすい食材を調理する際、
鍋に載せておくだけでOK。
火加減の調節は必要だが、それ以外は鍋に張り付いている必要もない。
差し水も不要なのでゆでる温度が下がらず、調理時間も短縮できる。
麺のゆで加減を見るときに調整口から麺を引っ張り出せて、フタを取らなくてすむ。
「沸騰すると4つの細長い調整口から泡が出てきますが、
それらが自然に回流して鍋の中に戻る仕組みで、
不思議な構造だと驚く人も多いです」
(ルクエ社・日本総輸入代理店・コラムジャパン広報担当)。

また、吹きこぼれ防止フタはほかにもあるが、シンプルで手入れが簡単、
デザインが洗練されていることなども、人気の理由のようです。
個人ブログには「麺を大量にゆでるときにすごく便利」
「直径が27cmで小さな鍋から比較的大きな鍋まで対応する点がいい」
「キッチンに映える」などの記述もある。

コラムジャパンには現在もメディア各社からの取材依頼が続いていて、
今後ますますヒットしそです。

これは便利ですよ

Today's song from the iTunes Library in

I Love You

Lyrics ,Music:Cole Porter

The song was publishe 1944.

As sung by big-voiced Wilbur Evans in the show,
‘I Love You’ quickly caught on, enabling Cole to win the wager while
adding still another number--the only one in Mexican Hayride
to become popular--to his long list of hit songs.”

Despite some harsh criticism of the show, the public succumbed
to its gaiety, and it ran for 481 performances.
It starred comic Bobby Clark as a numbers racketeer who flees to Mexico,
Wilbur Evans as a “charge d’affaires,” and June Havoc
as a lady bullfighter to whom Evans sings “I Love You.”

The song appears to have been overlooked by contemporary singers.
Although it has a long, beautiful verse,
the melody is not a particularly easy one.
Earlier vocalists such as Helen Merrill, Anita O’Day, Billy Eckstine,
and Irene Kral performed it.
Opera singer Jessye Norman recorded it in 1984,
and jazz vocalist Jay Clayton included it in her 1995 album
with pianist Fred Hersch, Beautiful Love.


Mexican Hayride (musical)


I love you
Hums the April breeze.
I love you
Echo the hills.
I love you
The golden dawn agrees
As once more she sees
Daffodils.
It's spring again
And birds on the wing again
Start to sing again
The old melody.
I love you,
That's the song of songs
And it all belongs
To you and me.

It's spring again
And birds on the wing again
Start to sing again
The old melody.
I love you,
That's the song of songs
And it all belongs
To you and me

都心の路地裏に誕生した正統派 日本料理店の雄

青山 仁
Aoyama Jin

青山通りから一歩入った路地の裏。
都会の喧騒がまるで嘘のように静かな住宅街の一角に
ポツンと灯る門灯の明かり……。
モダンな黒塀に茶室のにじり口を思わせる、やや低い木の戸口。
凛とした佇まいに、まだ見ぬ空間への期待は自ずと膨らんでいく。
ここが、割烹『青山 仁』。

引き戸を開ければ、お香がゆかしく薫る静謐な趣に、心がほっとほどけていくよう。
個室が並ぶ細い廊下の先には、小ぢんまりとしたカウンター席。
雪見障子のように仕切られた窓から見える坪庭が興をそそる。
聚楽(じゅらく)壁には花椿が一輪、清々しい栗の木のカウンターに
さり気なく置かれた茶道具が、店主のもてなしの心を物語っているようです。



(青山 仁)-1


(青山 仁)-2

控えめながらも凛とした
趣を醸す外観


(青山 仁)-3

店主の富井賢洋氏
32歳ながら数々の経験を持つ実力派


(青山 仁)-4

1.食事の最後には店主自らがお茶を点ててくれる


(青山 仁)-5

2.店内にはさり気なく風情が感じられる演出を


(青山 仁)-6

鯛と鯛の白子入り炊き込みご飯
鯛の出汁で炊いた逸品。
料理はすべてコースより


(青山 仁)-7

筍とウドとトリ貝のお碗
京都の大原野で掘った旬の味。
風味豊かで澄んだ味わいが広がる


(青山 仁)-8

八寸
手前からサヨリの昆布〆と叩きワラビ、
飯タコ、ホタルイカなど

「四季を通じて、さまざまな食材が巡っていく。
それをその時々で表現できることが和食の一番の魅力でしょうか。
できるだけ素材本来の持ち味を生かせる料理を、と心がけています」

真摯な姿勢でそう語るのはご主人の富井賢洋氏。
最初の修業先である鮨屋で魚のイロハをみっちりと叩きこまれ、
その後、銀座『うち山』、神宮前『一凛』で和食の技術を身につけ、
この2月に独立を果たした。

料理は正統派。
全10品前後からなるコースは
「冷たいものや似たような味が続かないように気をつけている」そうで、
例えば、毛蟹の土佐酢ゼリーなどが並ぶ八寸のあとに椀物。
旬の造りの次は温かい飯蒸しを出すといった按配。
シンプルを「旨」としつつも、鯛と鯛の白子入り炊き込みご飯など、
時には遊び心のある逸品も嬉しい限りです。

Goodbye

Lyrics ,Music:Gordon Jenkins

The song was publishe 1935.

A young Gordon Jenkins, fresh from working gigs on banjo
in St. Louis joints, was hired by the Isham Jones Orchestra in 1932
as staff arranger. Jones’ band, begun in 1920,
had become a well-respected, sophisticated dance orchestra
by the early 1930s.
Saxophonist Joe Bishop had written a composition entitled
“Blue Prelude,” and the Casa Loma Orchestra scooped Isham Jones
and recorded it in early 1933.
The Casa Loma record started getting attention,
and Jones was not happy that another band had found success
with a tune written by one of his sidemen,
so he quickly recorded his own version.
But before the music could be published it needed lyrics,
and Jones wanted them ASAP.
Jenkins volunteered, even though Bishop was dubious about
his skill as a lyricist.
Nevertheless, once the music was published it scored big,
and Bing Crosby’s version hit the charts.




I'll never forget you.
I'll never forget you.
I'll never forget how we promised one day,
To love one another forever that way.
We said we'd never say, "Good-bye."

But that was long ago.
Now you've forgotten, I know.
No use to wonder why.
Let's say farewell with a sigh.
Let love die.

But we'll go on living,
Our own way of living.
So you take the high road and I'll take the low.
It's time that we parted,
It's much better so.
But kiss me as you go.
Good-bye.

But that was long ago.
Now you've forgotten, I know.
No use to wonder why.
Let's say farewell with a sigh.
Let love die.

But we'll go on living,
Our own way of living.
So you take that high road and I'll take the low.
It's time that we parted,
It's much better so.
But kiss you as you go.
Good-bye. Good-bye. Good-bye.

2013年4月25日の発売以来、タカラトミーアーツ(東京都葛飾区)の
ビールグラス用台座「ソニックアワー」が人気です。
発売から約1カ月後の5月末時点で5万個を出荷。
当初の販売計画を上回る順調な売れ行きだという。

I Remember You

Lyrics:Johnny Mercer
Music:Victor Schertzinger

The song was publishe 1942.

This collaboration of Victor Schertzinger and Johnny Mercer
was introduced in the 1942 motion picture The Fleet’s In,
starring Dorothy Lamour, William Holden,
and Jimmy Dorsey’s Orchestra with vocalists Helen O’Connell
and Bob Eberly.
Dorsey’s recording, with a vocal by Eberly, made it into the charts.

Director Schertzinger was a multi-talented man, both a master of music
and the film arts.
He teamed with superb lyricist Johnny Mercer for the music
for The Fleet’s In, which would be Schertzinger’s last picture.
The two wrote “I Remember You,” ”Tangerine,”
and “Arthur Murray Taught Me Dancing in a Hurray,”
all three of which would be big hits for Jimmy Dorsey’s band.


The Fleet's In


I remember you
I remember you-ooh
You're the one who made my dreams come true
A few kisses ago

I remember you-ooh
You're the one who said "i love you, too"
Yes, I do, didn'tcha know?

I remember, too, a distant bell and stars that fell
Like the rain out of the blue-ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo

When my life is through
And the angels ask me to recall
The thrill of it all
Then I will tell them I remember you-ooh

I remember, too, a distant bell and stars that fell
Just like the rain out of the blue-ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo

When my life is through
And the angels ask me to recall
The thrill of it all
Then I will tell them I remember, tell them I remember
Tell them I remember you

名刺入れにセットできる極細ペン「ミニモ」でどこでもメモ

相手と名刺交換をしたあと、
日付や相手の情報を名刺の裏などに書き込もうとしたところ、
手元に筆記具の持ち合わせがなく、
そうこうしているうちに記入するのを忘れてしまう場合がある。
こうした場合に役立つのが、名刺入れに入れて持ち歩ける極細ペン「ミニモ」です。




「ミニモ」-1

「ミニモ」パッケージ。
今回紹介しているのはシャープペンだが、ボールペンもラインアップしている。
いずれもボディカラーは各4色

ミニモは、直径はわずか3.3ミリという極細のシャープペン。
最大の特徴は、差込ホルダーが付属しており、
名刺入れにそのままセットできてしまうことです。
名刺と名刺の間に挟み込むだけなので、
多くの名刺入れと組み合わせて持ち歩くことができる。
長さは91ミリと、名刺の長辺とほぼ同等なので、
先端が名刺入れから外に飛び出すこともない。


「ミニモ」-2

ペン本体。
直径3.3ミリの細さだが、軸の強度はかなりのもの

もちろん名刺入れに限らず、財布やメモ帳などにもセットできるので、
いざというときに筆記具がなくて困らずに済む。
ふだん筆記具を持ち歩くことを習慣付けている人でも、
バッグを替えた際にうっかり置き忘れたり、
あるいは自分の席に置いたまま外出してしまったり、というケースはあるはずです。
こうした場合に使 える非常用の筆記具としても有用です。


「ミニモ」-3

ペンをスライド収納できるPP製の差込ホルダーが付属する


「ミニモ」-4 

名刺入れなどに差込ホルダーごと収納すれば、
手軽に携帯でき、必要な時にいつでも取り出せる

わざわざ筆記具を携帯しなくても、取りあえず名刺入れさえあれば
いざというときにメモが取れる安心感をもたらしてくれるミニモ。
いい意味で存在感がなく、 邪魔にならないのもうれしい。
今回紹介しているシャープペンだが、ボールペンもラインアップしているので、
用途に合わせて使ってみてはいかがだろう。

これは便利ですよ!

Nature Boy

Lyrics ,Music:Eden Ahbez

The song was publishe 1948.

The composer of “Nature Boy,” eden ahbez (no capitals per his request),
was born Alexander Aberle in Brooklyn in 1908.
The original sheet music of the song shows a photo of ahbez-long hair
and beard, an almost Christ-like figure, highly unusual for the 1940s.
In some respects, ahbez was the prototypical hippie twenty years ahead
of his time, for in addition to his appearance he lived a simple life,
wore a robe and sandals, was a vegetarian,
and even was reputed to be living with his wife under the “L”
letter of the famous “HOLLYWOOD” sign.

Early in his life Aberle and his 12 siblings were orphaned,
some sent to a foster home in Kansas.
Alexander didn’t stay long and embarked on a wandering life,
eventually ending up in Los Angeles.
In 1947 he left a tattered manuscript of his composition
“Nature Boy” backstage at a Nat “King” Cole performance.
Cole liked the tune and subsequently recorded it for Capitol.
The label’s executives, however, didn’t know what to think about it
and held off releasing the record.
Yet Cole believed in the song and its simple message,
and live performances proved the song’s appeal to the public.
Eventually the Capitol hierarchy released Cole’s recording
and the rest is history, as it’s said.




There was a boy
A very strange, enchanted boy
They say he wandered very far
Very far, over land and sea
A little shy and sad of eye
But very wise was he

And then one day,
One magic day he passed my way
While we spoke of many things
Fools and Kings
This he said to me

The greatest thing you'll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return

Exactly Like You

Lyrics:Dorothy Fields
Music:Jimmy McHugh

The song was publishe 1930.

Broadway was hard hit by the Great Depression,
and many shows like the International Revue closed after short runs.
Although well-funded and featuring a top-notch cast
(Gertrude Lawrence, Harry Richman, Jack Pearl, Anton Dolin,
and Argentinita) with choreography by master Busby Berkeley
and songs by McHugh/Fields, the musical was poorly scripted,
too long, and, in general, had little appeal for audiences or critics.

The Depression hit the recording industry, too,
and once the initial popularity of a tune wore off,
the public was on to something new.
As swing became progressively more popular,
big band leaders resurrected a number of older hits.
The Benny Goodman Trio’s version of “Exactly Like You”
from August, 1936, was the first recorded vocal
by vibraphonist/drummer Lionel Hampton,
and the disc hit the charts, rekindling the momentum
that would lead to it becoming a jazz standard.




Exactly Like You

I know why I've waited
Know why I've been blue
I pray each night for someone
Exactly like you

Why should we spend some money
On a show or two
No one plays those love scenes
Exactly like you

You make me feel so grand
I wanna give the world to you
You make me understand
Every foolish little dream I'm dreaming
Every scheme I'm scheming

I know why my mother
Taught me to be true
She meant me for someone
Exactly like you

I know why I've waited
Know why I've been blue
I pray each night for someone
Exactly like you

Why should we spend some money
On a show or two
No one plays those love scenes
Exactly like you

You make me feel so grand
I wanna give the world to you
You make me understand
Every foolish little dream I'm dreaming
Every scheme I'm scheming

I know why my mother
Taught me to be true
She meant me for someone
My baby, exactly like you

For All We Know

Lyrics:Sam M. Lewis
Music:J. Fred Coots

The song was publishe 1934.

Composer J. Fred Coots and lyricist Sam Lewis,
both of whom enjoyed success on Broadway,
wrote “For All We Know” in 1934.
Vocalist Morton Downey, the “Irish Thrush” who was voted
best male vocalist on the air in 1932,
introduced it on his popular radio show.

It was recorded by the early bands of Kay Kyser and Guy Lombardo
and by Nina Simone in 1959, but it didn’t chart again
until 1962 when singer Dinah Washington took it to number 88.
Many jazz instrumentalists recorded the song as well as
vocalists Billie Holiday, June Christy and Nat “King” Cole.
New recordings include those of the Clayton/Hamilton Jazz Orchestra,
pianists Cyrus Chestnut and Monty Alexander, vocalists Freddy Cole,
Arild Andersen, and Eden Atwood,
and, in 2006, British pianist Stan Tracey.




For all we know
We may never meet again
Before we go
Make this moment live again
We won't say goodbye
Until the last minute
I'll hold out my hand
And my heart will be in it

For all we know
This might only be a dream
We come and we go
Like the ripples, like the ripples in the stream
So baby, love me, love me tonight
Tomorrow was made for some
Oh, but tomorrow
But tomorrow may never, never come
For all we know
Yes, tomorrow may never, never come
For all we know

寝ぐせを瞬く間に整える「寝ぐせバスター」

朝起きたら髪が爆発、
直すのに時間がかかって遅刻寸前……という人は多いだろう。
これを解決するアイテム、「寝ぐせバスター」が登場。
男子学生を中心に人気を集めている。
シャワーキャップのような形状の寝ぐせバスター(本体)の中に、
コップ1杯の水を入れて頭にかぶり5秒もむと、それだけで寝ぐせがとれる。




「寝ぐせバスター」

寝ぐせバスター 2980円。
使用後は軽く絞り裏返しにして乾かせば、繰り返し30回は使える。

販売元のスマートライフ研究所(横浜市青葉区)によると、
2013年4月19日の発売後、ラジオなどで紹介され、
大手量販店から1日50件を超える問い合わせがあったという。

この商品を開発したのは、米国の名門ブラウン大学を卒業したばかりの
若きエンジニア、マックス・バルベルデさん。
自身の経験から「洗面台や洋服を水浸しにせず、鏡にも水しぶきが飛び散らずに
効率良く寝ぐせを直せる方法はないか」と考えた。
キャップの内側に、高い吸水性を持つ特殊ポリウレタン素材を使用した ことで、
水分と湿気を微妙にコントロールしながらも外部には
水がこぼれないようになっている。
シャワーもタオルも使わずに、ビショビショになることもな く、
さっと直せるのが人気の理由です。
寝ぐせの悩みは世界共通らしく、現在25カ国で発売されているという。

主な購買層は中学・高校の男子学生で、
「毎朝寝ぐせを直すのに時間をとられて遅刻を繰り返していたが、
早く家を出られるようになった」(高校生男子)などの声が届いている。
また、「毎朝小学生の子ども3人の寝ぐせ直しに悪戦苦闘していた」という

Today's song from the iTunes Library in

Posted by Azumi on   0 comments

Mack the Knife

Lyrics:Marc Blitzstein ,Bertolt Brecht
Music:Kurt Weill

The song was publishe 1928.

This ballad was part of composer Kurt Weill’s The Threepenny Opera
which was an adaptation of The Beggar’s Opera (1728) by John Gay,
English playwright and societal satirist (1685-1732).
The lead character of Gay’s opera is named Captain MacHeath,
a gentleman who prefers the company of cutthroats and whores.
The central theme of The Beggar’s Opera,
the most popular play of the 18th century,
is that the same characters inhabit prisons
and governmental positions.

In the 1920’s Europe was recovering from World War I
and Kurt Weill was interested in the Music for the People movement.
He teamed with Marxist poet Bertolt Brecht to translate into German, adapt,
and update The Beggar’s Opera with MacHeath
becoming a gangster named Mackie Messier or Mack the Knife.
“The Ballad of Mack the Knife” was originally entitled “Moritat,”
meaning “murder song”
(“mord” meaning murder and “tat” meaning deed),
and it was positioned just after the Overture so as to establish Mack’s
evil nature early on in the production.
It was sung by a street singer who pointed to images of the crimes
Mackie has committed such as arson, rape and murder.


The Threepenny Opera


Oh, the shark has pretty teeth, dear
And he shows 'em, pearly white
Just a jack knife has Macheath, dear
And he keeps it, keeps it way out of sight

When that shark bites with his teeth, dear
Scarlet billows, they begin to spread
Fancy white gloves though has Macheath, dear
So there's rarely, never one trace of red

On the sidewalk, one Sunday mornin'
Lies a body oozin' life
Someone's sneaking 'round the corner
Could that someone, perhaps, perchance, be Mack the Knife?

From a tugboat on the river goin' slow
A cement bag, it is dropping down
Yeah, the cement is just for the weight, dear
You can make a large bet Macheath is back in town

My man Louie Miller, he split the scene, babe
After drawin' out all the bread from his stash
Now Macheath spends just like a pimp, babe
Do you suppose that our boy, he did something rash?

Ah, old Satchmo, Louis Armstrong, Bobby Darrin
They did this song nice, Lady Ella too
They all sang it, with so much feeling
That Old Blue Eyes, he ain't gonna add nothing new

But with Quincy's big band, right behind me
Swinging hard, Jack, I know I can't lose
When I tell you, all about Mack the Knife babe
It's an offer, you can never refuse

We got George Benson, we got Newman & Foster
We got the Brecker Brothers, and Hampton's bringing up the rear
All these bad cats, and more, are in the band now
They make the greatest sounds, you ever gonna hear

Hey Sookie Taudry, Jenny Diver, Polly Peachum, Old Miss Lulu Brown
Oh the line forms, on the right dear
Now that Macheath, I mean that man Macheath
Yeah he's bad, mercy mercy
Yeah he's badder than old Leroy Brown
You better lock your door, and call the law
Because Macheath's, that bum,
He's back in town

Avalon

Lyrics ,Music:Al Jolson ,BG De Sylva ,Vincent Rose

The song was publishe 1920.

From his first hit record in 1912 until the decline
of his career in the 1930s, almost anything Jolson performed
turned to gold.
Just his name associated with a song almost guaranteed success.
Jolson was one of the first artists to capitalize on his popularity,
cutting in on composer credits and royalties--
hence the reason Jolson gets top billing on the credits to “Avalon.”

Most likely Vincent Rose deserves credit for the music, but not completely.
The opening melody of the tune is actually a lift from Giacomo Puccini’s aria
“E Lucevan Le Stelle,” from the opera Tosca.
Rose merely changed the melody from minor to major
and added some melody bits of his own.
But it was an obvious enough lift that Puccini’s publishers,
G. Rocordi, sued the composers and the publisher in 1921
and were awarded $25,000 in punitive damages and all future royalties.




I found my love in Avalon
Beside the bay.
I left my love in Avalon
And I sailed away.
I dream of her in Avalon
From dusk till dawn.
So I think I'll travel on
To Avalon.

Every morn' my memories stray
Across the sea where flying fishes play.
And as the night is falling
I find that I'm recalling
That blissful all-enthralling day.

Beside the bay.
And I sailed away.
I dream of her in Avalon
From dusk till dawn.
So I think I'll travel on
To Avalon.

I Thought About You

Lyrics:Johnny Mercer
Music:Jimmy Van Heusen

The song was publishe 1939.

“I Thought About You” was among the first tunes that lyricist
Johnny Mercer collaborated on with composer Jimmy Van Heusen.
Mercer had just become a partner with Edwin H. Morris
and formed Mercer-Morris.
In Gene Lees’ biography, Portrait of Johnny:
The Life of John Herndon Mercer,
the author relates Mercer’s tale of writing the tune.
Van Heusen played the melody for Mercer,
who was leaving that evening for Chicago to appear
on a radio program with Benny Goodman.
Unable to sleep, Mercer found inspiration for the song
from the train trip, seeing the little towns, the moon
and landscape along the way.
Mercer admitted his writing style was to paint pictures with lyrics,
to “transport people to someplace they don’t know.”
The story is a marvelous example of how a fine lyricist
like Mercer could find inspiration in something many would
consider mundane, a train trip.




I took a trip on a train and I thought about you.
I passed a shadowy lane and I thought about you.
Two or three cars parked under the stars a winding stream.
Moon shining down on some little town
And with each beam the same old dream.

And every stop that we made I thought about you.
And when I pulled down the shade then I really felt blue.
I peaked through the crack and looked at the track,
The one going back to you and what did I do?
I thought about you.

There were two or three cars parked under the stars...
a windin' stream.
Moon shining down on some little town
And with each beam the same old dream.

And then I peaked through the crack and I looked at that track,
The one going back to you, and what did I do...
I thought about you.

The Very Thought of You

Lyrics ,Music:Ray Noble

The song was publishe 1934.

English composer/bandleader Ray Noble’s first big success,
“Good Night Sweetheart” (1931), had become a hit due
in part to an excellent Bing Crosby recording.
The tune soon became the closer for many bands,
undoubtedly one of the most oft-played tunes of the 1930s and ‘40s.
In 1932 Noble wrote “Love Is the Sweetest Thing,”
and his recording of the tune hit number one in the charts for 16 weeks.
“The Very Thought of You” did the very same thing in 1934.
Noble was soon getting offers from across the pond.

Noble’s bands were made up of English musicians
from other successful bands, such as those led by Lew Stone and Roy Fox.
Noble, a keen judge of talent, was basically a band organizer
even though his groups performed publicly on radio and on recordings.
Another “borrowed” band member was vocalist Al Bowlly,
who had a large following in England and even a fan-base in the U.S.




The very thought of you and I forget to do
The little ordinary things that everyone ought to do
I'm living in a kind of daydream
I'm happy as a king
And foolish though it may seem
To me that's everything

The mere idea of you, the longing here for you
You'll never know how slow the moments go till I'm near to you
I see your face in every flower
Your eyes in stars above
It's just the thought of you
The very thought of you, my love

The mere idea of you, the longing here for you
You'll never know how slow the moments go till I'm near to you
I see your face in every flower
Your eyes in stars above
It's just the thought of you
The very thought of you, my love

Stormy Weather (Keeps Rainin' All the Time)

Lyrics:Ted Koehler
Music:Harold Arlen

The song was publishe 1933.

“Stormy Weather” was originally written by Harold Arlen and Ted Koehler
for vocalist and bandleader Cab Calloway,
who, along with his fine big band, had been a fixture
at New York’s Cotton Club.
Calloway took over the prestigious slot from
Duke Ellington in February, 1931.
Before the 1933 Cotton Club Parade show went into production,
Calloway left the club and Ellington returned.
This left the show’s producers in tight spot since Ellington didn’t sing
and they needed a “name” to feature the tune.
In a fortuitous turn of events, vocalist Ethel Waters
returned to New York from Chicago.
The show’s producers and the tune’s composers met with Miss Waters,
and she agreed perform the song in the show,
her only appearance as part of the revue.


Stormy Weather


Don't know why
There's no sun up in the sky
Stormy weather
Since my man and I ain't together
Keeps raining all the time

Life is bare
Gloom and misery everywhere
Stormy weather
Just can't get my poor old self together
I'm weary all the time, the time
So weary all of the time

When he went away
The blues walked in and met me
If he stays away, old rocking chair will get me
All I do is pray
The lord above will let me
Walk in the sun once more

Can't go on
Everything I had is gone
Stormy weather
Since my man and I ain't together
Keeps raining all the time
Keeps raining all of the time

I walk around,
Heavy-hearted and sad
Night comes around
And I'm still feeling bad
Rain pourin' down
Blinding every hope I had
This pitter 'n patter 'n beatin' 'n spatterin' drivin' me mad

Love, love, love, love
This misery will be the end of me

(bridge)

When he went away
The blues walked in and met me
If he stays away, old rocking chair will get me
All I do is pray
The lord above will let me
Walk in the sun once more

Can't go on
Everything I had is gone
Stormy weather
Since my man and I ain't together
Keeps raining all the time, the time
Keeps raining all the time

超リアルな高額マグロ解体フィギュア

ホビー商品販売会社ホビーストック(東京都墨田区)は2013年4月16日より、
マグロの解体作業で切り分ける部位を正確に再現したフィギュア
解体フィギュア・黒マグロ」を発売した。
企画・製作を担当したのは、築地のまぐろ卸業者「山和」の代表者。
「山和」の代表者は仕事柄、マグロを売買する際にノートに書いて説明しているが、
部位や柵取りについての情報が伝わりにくいため、
説明のための立体フィギュアを思いついた。
また自身が大のおもちゃコレクターということもあり、
「こんなフィギュアが欲しい」と本気で思ったことも理由のひとつだそうです。




「解体フィギュア・黒マグロ」

「解体フィギュア・黒マグロ」2万9400円。
黒マグロ本体:全長330mm、体高120mm(ひれ含む)、体幅75mm。
セット内容は黒マグロ本体、下ろし台、下ろし台脚、ディスプレイ用台座、
ディスプレイ用台座脚、下ろし包丁、下ろし包丁鞘

開発段階で「山和」の代表者が細部にまで妥協せずにこだわったため、
どんどん予算がオーバー。
「この価値は必ず伝わる」という信念で商品化したが、
発売価格は約3 万円と高額になってしまった。
販売を担当したホビーストックでも「どれだけ売れるだろうか」と
不安を抱く社員が多い中での発売だったが、発売と同時に取材 が殺到。
ホビーストックの通販サイトなどインターネット通販のみの販売ながら、
1カ月間で3桁に届く勢いの売り上げで、関係者も驚いている。

「マグロのプロならではの再現度の高さや、
部位ごとに解体でき磁石でつながるなど今までにないギミック、
本物のような付属品などがお客様に響いたのでは」(同社広報担当者)

これはいいよね!

Undecided

Lyrics:Sid Robi
Music:Charles Shavers

The song was publishe 1939.

The 1930s and ‘40s were dominated by big swing
and dance bands capable of filling
the many large ballrooms across America.
But a significant number of nightclubs required smaller ensembles,
especially in cities like New York and Chicago.
One of these diminutive venues was the Onyx Club on New York’s 52nd Street which came to be known as “Swing Street”
for its many small jazz clubs.
Swinging violinist Stuff Smith’s group packed the club during 1936
and early 1937, only leaving the gig for a Hollywood movie appearance.

Bassist John Kirby, a veteran of the bands of Chick Webb
and Fletcher Henderson,
assembled a small group to take Smith’s place at the Onyx.
The group basically existed as a jam band until November,
1937, when trumpeter Charlie Shavers joined.
Shavers, a big band veteran and arranger,
began whipping the musicians into a tightly integrated ensemble,
playing arrangements of everything from popular songs
to interpretations of classics.
Shavers also began composing originals,
one of which was sent off to his publisher.
Receiving the untitled composition the publishers wired
Shavers for the name.
Shavers’ brief wired response was “UNDECIDED,”
which they mistakenly took to be the title.
Sid Robin wrote lyrics for the melody, basing them on a tempo
that was half of what Shavers had intended. Robin’s lyrics
work cleverly around the tune’s repeated melody,
telling the story of an on-again, off-again relationship.
The tune suited Ella Fitzgerald’s early style perfectly,
as though Robin had her in mind when writing the lyrics.




First you say you do
And then you don't
And then you say you will
And then you won't

You're undecided now
So what are you gonna do?

Now you want to play
And then it's no
And when you say you'll stay
That's when you go

You're undecided now
So what are you gonna do?

I've been sitting on a fence
And it doesn't make much sense
'Cause you keep me in suspense
And you know it

Then you promise to return
When you don't, I really burn
Well, I guess I'll never learn
And I show it

If you've got a heart
And if you're kind
Then don't keep us apart
Make up your mind

You're undecided now
So what are you gonna do?

I've been sitting on a fence
And it doesn't make much sense
'Cause you keep me in suspense
And you know it

Then you promise to return
When you don't, I really burn
Well, I guess I'll never learn
And I show it

If you've got a heart
And if you're kind
Then don't keep us apart
Make up your mind

You're undecided now
So what are you gonna do?

Now if you don't love me
I wish you'd say so
Our love is so much honey
I'd just got to know

I am just a fool for you
What are you gonna do?

Today's song from the iTunes Library in

Don't Get Around Much Anymore

Lyrics:Bob Russell
Music:Duke Ellington

The song was publishe 1942.

Ellington’s 1940 band represented a pinnacle
in his 15-year band-leading career.
Now referred to as the “Webster-Blanton” band
(for tenor saxophonist Ben Webster and string bassist Jimmy Blanton),
the group was a tightly-knit unit comprised of some fabulous jazz talent. Ellington’s recordings and compositions from this period are readily acknowledged classics, enlivened by the great playing of musicians
like Webster and Blanton but also by Barney Bigard (clarinet),
Cootie Williams (trumpet), Harry Carney (baritone sax)
and Johnny Hodges (alto sax).
Duke’s “Never No Lament” was an instrumental feature for Hodges.
But Duke, ever mindful that a hit record would help ease
the financial burden of running a big band,
was open to suggestions on the commercial possibilities
of his compositions.
Consequently, several of his instrumentals from this period had lyrics
retrofitted to them by Bob Russell,
and “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore” is arguably
one of Russell’s best efforts.




Missed the Saturday dance
Heard they crowded the floor
Couldn't bear it without you
Don't get around much anymore

Thought I'd visit the club
Got as far as the door
They'd have asked me about you
Don't get around much anymore

Oh, Darling I guess my mind's more at ease
But nevertheless, why stir up memories

Been invited on dates
Might have gone but what for
Awfully different without you
Don't get around much anymore

Today's song from the iTunes Library in

My Foolish Heart

Lyrics:Ned Washington
Music:Victor Young

The song was publishe 1949.

Composer Victor Young wrote this song as the title piece
for the film My Foolish Heart for which he also wrote the score.
Long-time collaborator Ned Washington wrote the lyrics,
and the song was introduced by vocalist Martha Mears,
dubbing for actress Susan Hayward.
“My Foolish Heart” was nominated for a Best Song Oscar in 1950.

Victor Young is considered by many to be among the cadre of best film music writers of the 20th century. Although not a composer of sweeping, symphonic-type scores like Miklos Rosza, Dimitri Tiomkin or Bernard Hermann, Young had a marvelous knack for creating supreme melodies--
not really surprising since his writing career
began with popular songs.
“He wrote music from the heart,” music editor
and associate Bill Stinson said of Young.
“He had so much melody within him.
He may have been the best melody writer we ever had in Hollywood.”
But even by the early 1930s he had a reputation as one
of the music business’ top arrangers, too.


My Foolish Heart


The night is like a lovely tune
Beware my foolish heart
How white the ever constant moon
Take care my foolish heart

There's a line between love and fascination
That's hard to see on an evening such as this
For they both give the very same sensation
When your lost in the magic of a kiss
Her lips are much too close to mine
Beware my foolish heart

But should our eager lips combine
Then let the fire start
For this time it isn't fascination
Or a dream that will fade and fall apart
It's love, this time it's love
My foolish heart

For this time it isn't fascination
Or a dream that will fade and fall apart
It's love, this time it's love
My foolish heart

Everything Happens to Me

Lyrics:Thomas Adair
Music:Matt Dennis

The song was publishe 1941.

“Ol’ Blue Eyes,” Frank Sinatra, introduced
“Everything Happens to Me” in 1941 with Tommy Dorsey’s orchestra,
and their rendition rose to number nine on the charts.

Composer Matt Dennis became acquainted
with Dorsey through his friend, vocalist Jo Stafford.
He went to see her perform with the bandleader
at the Hollywood Palladium in December, 1940.
Stafford introduced Dennis to Dorsey, who asked to hear some of his tunes. Dorsey liked what he heard, remarking,
“They’re wonderful! How would you like to write for me?
We’ll record them.”




Black cats creep across my path
Until Im almost mad
I must have roused the devils wrath
'cause all my luck is bad

I make a date for golf – and you can bet your life it rains.
I try to give a party - but the guy upstairs complains.
I guess I'll go thru life just catching colds and missing trains;
Everything happens to me.

I never miss a thing - I've had measles and the mumps.
And every time I play my ace my partner always trumps.
I guess I'm just a fool who never looks before he jumps;
Everything happens to me.

At first my heart thought you could break this jinx for me.
That love would turn the trick to end despair.
But now, I just can't fool this head that thinks for me.
I've mortgaged all my castles in the air.

I telegraphed and phoned, sent an Air Mail Special, too;
You answer was goodbye - there was even postage due.
I fell in love just once, and then it had to be with you,
Everything happens to me.

I've never drawn a sweepstake, or a bank night at a show.
I thought perhaps this time I'd won, but Lady Luck said no.
And though it breaks my heart, I'm not surprised to see you go,
Everything happens to me,
Everything happens to me.
