But in the meantime, you can get a good quality solo version here:

She also played Rainwalk Song at the Fryeburg, Maine show a couple of months ago. Not sure if anyone recorded anything.


Yikes, I'm missing some serious set lists then!
Here are the Rainwalk recordings I know of (an easy search in TengBase):

New seed idea. It's insane, but it might work......

I was thinking about having a concert featuring Vienna in the Liberty Theatre in Astoria, Oregon Check this link. The singing Hobbit would look super hot in this venue. http://www.liberty-theater.org/

Now something super cool to raffle off and I have discovered this place is for sale near Cannon Beach, Oregon.
http://www.innatarchcape.com It is for sale by the way. The ad I saw was
http://www.loopnet.com/Listing/15989816/31950-E-Ocean-Lane-Arch-Cape-OR/

Maybe three nights of concert to generate the sales. Maybe Vienna write a song about weird capitalism or something. It's late, I need a diet coke.

Stop the presses. I just realized that property is not for sale anymore. Venue change now to this place on Whidbey Island, WA. I thought it was some sort of meeting places for witches and warlocks at first but it is a concert venue
http://www.wicaonline.com/ and the B&B on Whidbey Island is this super cool looking one that is to be auctioned off with ticket sales.

Thank goodness for diet coke........

Still looking for seed ideas? Here is another one.

It's just my personal interpretation, but there may be an underlying red thread throughout a considerable part of Vienna's lyrics that might be called The Rhythms of Life. I think I picked up one end of the thread in the lines "Breathe In - Breathe Out - Exhale and Inhale -..." in trying to understand "Feather Moon". The thread can be traced from a very small, personal and intimate scale to a really grand scale, e.g. exhaling/inhaling; maternity, birth, coming of age and death (and rebirth?); finding and losing the one very special person, and after that starting all over again; good-bye and return; the rhythms of the sea; and finally the rise and fall of political systems, civilization and life itself. The songs referred to are probably very obvious to you so that I won't have to name them.

A rhythm that defines animal life, including human life, and a rhythm that lends itself to musical as well as lyrical transformation is: Heartbeat. So this is my seed idea for today.

The next seed idea is a wink to Feather Moon with "breathe in breathe out / exhale and inhale", but in a less poetic way with environmental issues :

Maybe have Vienna write a song about Anger Management inspired by this hilarious clip of right wing talk show host Bill O'Reilly going certifiably insane. *warning: O'Reilly swears and curses a lot* and really seems to have an anger management problem.

Seed Idea this week would feature a song by Vienna discussing economics. Since she seems to have a large German fanbase I would suggest she use this article in the New York Times and spin a song out of it. Economics was not one of my more favorite subjects in college but Vienna was always reading economic books for fun. (is that humanly possible?) Obviously she has magical powers. Here is the article. What stood out to me is that the hourly pay for Germans increased nearly 30% from 1985 on where as American workers increased only 6%. There unemployement rate is 6.1 percent, ours is 9.1. They did not have a housing bubble like the U.S. and their children do better in math and science. Absolutely fascinating. Here is the article.

New seed idea on healthcare based on this. To think we could save from 142-371 billion dollars a year just by centralizing health care records.
Here's the official Harvard study that contends United States health care is the "world's most inefficient information enterprise."
The study claims adoption of a centralized electronic records system would save between $142 - $371 billion per year:

Next, we hear a significant segment of the health care provider community crying "poverty" -- they claim "we can't afford electronic medical records."
Yet, their CEOs become BILLIONAIRES.
Next, we have FREE open source software available for that very purpose:

Not all the news is bad Walking Stranger. The good people of the state of Vermont will be the first in the U.S. to institute a single payer health care system based on the Canadian version. http://economix.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/06/06/vermonts-move-toward-single-payer-health-insurance/This could be the domino that starts the other states to follow suit, especially if the quality of care is good and the costs associated with it go down and save the state money. Vermont, will be the experiment. Other states such as Oregon and Hawaii have talked about doing the same thing as well I hope they do it also.

Sure, not all the news are bad.
Some are repeated to increase fear and some are not even chosen by the mainstream media :

Well, whatever will happen, happens !

"Bulletin" - "Die schönsten Gedichte von Hermann Hesse" - Diogenes, Zürich, 1996.

"[...] Wie schwer wir uns doch dieses Leben machen,
Und wissen ja, wie kurz es ist und nichtig,
Und nehmen es doch so verzweifelt wichtig !
Es ist zum Weinen, Freund, es ist zum Lachen. [...] "

Oh combien difficile nous rendons cette vie
Et la sachant qu'elle est courte et vouée au néant
Et quelle importance désespérée nous lui accordons !
C'est à en pleurer, l'ami, c'est à en rire.

How difficult we make this life
And how well we know it's short and void
And we give it so desperated importance !
It makes just cry, my friend, it makes just laugh.


Have a nice week-end VT forumites !

More good news: The NY State Assembly has passed Marriage Equality, and it looks like there is a reasonable chance it will pass the State Senate, too. There is one Republican who will vote for it; one more is needed and there is a possible one from Staten Island. Gov. Cuomo is committed, and hopefully he'll find the inducement to bring the one needed vote into line in the next few days (some project to benefit Staten Island, presumably).

I have never had the good fortune to meet Vienna Teng or watch her perform in concert live, but I have studied photos, studied the posted video's on youtube, have read her answers here on the forum to our many questions, and have studied the other forumites amazing stories of their encounters with her, etc. I have imagined being her realtor in a strange way and I have posted many houses that I thought would be suitable for her because I would know better than any actual realtor of what her dwelling should be like. I kind of relate to that story in the Bible where I think James and John could not heal a person who was sick. Jesus shows up and heals the person instantly. James and John ask,
Why could we not heal this person?
and Jesus responds saying,
This kind requires prayer and fasting

Anyhow this house I found through prayer and fasting. I fasted for two hours. I would have gone longer, but I got hungry. Anyhow I recalled reading one of Vienna's comments where she and Mr. Cheng had gone to a Mexican restaurant and had a great meal. This came back to me as I was searching for the perfect house for her. Like all the other perfect houses I have posted here, I think this is the one. It is called CASA MUSICA I am telling you, I think my fast paid off. check out this video!
