OPETH Releases Lyric Video For New Song 'The Wilde Flowers'
Swedish progressive metallers OPETH, can be seen below. The track is featured on the band's highly anticipated twelfth studio album, "Sorceress", which is scheduled for release on September 30 via the band's imprint label Moderbolaget Records with Nuclear Blast.
Speaking with Metal Hammer, OPETH vocalist Mikael Åkerfeldt said about "The Wilde Flowers": "This was the first song I wrote for this album. It's kind of an OPETH standard, in a way, like from the last two albums. It's very dynamic. It has a chorus, I guess. Then there's a big QUEEN-sounding bit in the middle just before this massive solo… oh, and harps! They're hidden in the mix but they're there. The title comes from the band CARAVAN – they were originally called WILDE FLOWERS. I always liked those weird spellings."For "Sorceress", OPETH returned to Rockfield Studios in Wales, also home to pivotal releases from QUEEN, RUSH and JUDAS PRIEST, where the Swedes had tracked "Pale Communion" in 2014 with Tom Dalgety. The band spent twelve days recording at the countryside venue among its serene and inspiring surroundings. The result is nothing short of a powerful and intriguing record that will add yet another layer to the ba... (BLABBERMOUTH.NET)Jul 14, 2016
Mass for St. Patrick's pastor set for Friday
Seminary in Oregon. Prior to his assignment at St. Patrick’s, he served as assistant pastor at St. George Parish in Stockton, St. Jude Parish in Ceres, Our Lady of Fatima in Modesto, and St. Catherine of Sienna in Phoenix, Arizona. For many years, he also did missionary work in Malinasco, Mexico. At St. Patrick’s in Ripon, he built the Chapel of the Holy Angels next to the rectory “through prayer, sacrifice and the help of the (parish) community.” Under his watch, the parish also purchased the 22-acre property next to the chapel in anticipation of the church’s future expansion, or when Highway 120 would be widened thereby affecting the present church building.Father Carota attended Watsonville High School and graduated from Carleton University in Canada. Prior to entering the seminary as a late vocation, he was a successful Realtor in Santa Cruz. He also served as a missionary in Brazil. While living in Santa Cruz, he started the St. Francis Catholic Soup Kitchen as well as Jesus, Mary, and Joseph Housing Shelter. It was his work with the poor which planted the seed for his late vocation, he said in an interview with the Manteca Bulletin shortly before his sabbatical. As a volunteer, he was often mistaken as a priest by many of the people he met and served.One website described Father Carota as “a good priest and shepherd of his flock that sacrificed his life for the poor, the sick and the marginalized.”

Unscripted: From Brandon Flowers to Gaga, Bowie inspired countless artists
Bowie’s “Slow Burn” for The Killers’ “All These Things That I Have Done.” Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I suppose.
Annie Clark, better known as St. Vincent, has always been open about Bowie’s enormous influence on her creative endeavors. In January 2015, Clark discussed Bowie’s music and fashion at The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago’s “David Bowie Is” exhibit.
Clark, a natural dark brunette, dyed her curly locks a mystical lavender hue around the time of her self-titled “St. Vincent” album. She says part of her inspiration for such a drastic makeover was inspired by Bowie’s orange ‘do on the cover of 1975’s “Young Americans.”
Gaga’s outrageous fashion choices —meat dress, anyone? — are in part inspired by Bowie’s extraterrestrial allure.
Just days before Bowie’s death, Gaga (born Stefani Germanotta) spoke on a podcast interview with The Hollywood Reporter about Bowie’s influence on her.
“When I fell in love with David Bowie, when I was living on the Lower East Side, I always felt that his glamour was something he was using to express a message to people that was very healing for their souls,” Gaga said. “He is a true, true artist and I don’t know if I ever went, ‘Oh, I’m going to be that way like this,’ or if I arrived upon it slowly, realizing it was my calling and that’s what drew me to him.’’
I love sad songs, so naturally, I love Morrissey. The Smiths frontman says that when he was a teenager he deeply admired Bowie.
“Manchester then was full of bootboys and skinheads and macho-macho thugs,” Morrissey told the BBC. “I saw Bowie’s appearance as the ultimate bravery. He was so important to me because his vocal melodies were so strong and his appearance was so confrontational.”
Once Morrissey rose to his own stardom, he actually had some bad blood with Bowie. It seemed to begin when Morrissey quit just before he was supposed to begin as the opening act of the European leg of Bowie’s 1995 tour. The pair squabbled again when Morrissey wanted to use an unreleased photo of them on an album cover, but Bowie wouldn’t let him.
I’d rather remember the happier times the pair had, like this fun exchange over breakfast that Morrissey shares in his autobiography.
“David quietly tells me, ‘You know, I’ve had so much sex and drugs that I can’t believe I’m still alive,’ and I loudly tell him, ‘You know, I’ve had SO LITTLE sex and drugs I can’t believe I’m still alive,’ ” Morrissey wrote.

Village Project helps feed cancer patients and their families
Harrell had been human resources director for 14 years, offered the group kitchen space for its first years. The project is modeled after the Ceres Community Project in Sebastopol, California, and taps high school students as cooks, under the supervision of adults. Even younger student volunteers are put to use by tending an organic garden that supplies vegetables and fresh flowers.
“The transformation in all these kids is phenomenal,” Harrell says. “They learn to respect that when they are here, they are serving a purpose.”
To help ensure that goal, kitchen workers are not paired with their friends, but with students in other grades. Six students work in the kitchen at a time, three days a week. Schedules are juggled around extracurricular activities so there is a steady supply of workers.
No charge for meals
The Village Project quickly outgrew its quarters at Bay Presbyterian Church and has moved to a new Bay Village location on West Oviatt Road. About 500 volunteers give their time for the project — 80 are high school students.
“We recently hit our highest meal day ever, 45 individuals, 20 homes,” Harrell says. “What that means is each person in the family receives food. They receive three full meals for each person, side dishes and a dessert. So that means on that day, 135 meals went out of our kitchen.”
While the Village Project originally served only Bay Village, Avon Lake, Rocky River and Westlake have been added to its service area. Clients receive food for 12 weeks for free. After that, if they would like to continue, they are asked to donate cash if they can.
“If they can, great. If they can’t, we will continue to feed them,” Harrell says.
Supporting the effort
A few generous donors helped with seed money to start the Village Project, and fundraising efforts helped the organization net money to purchase food.
“The first year, 75 percent of our money came from individuals,” Harrell says. “Now it has changed a little bit; we are receiving help from more foundations.”
Harrell particularly appreciates support from the Community West Foundation.
“I just applied for our third grant,” she says. “They gave us $15,000 the first year, then $20,000, and this year we applied for a little bit more.”
Project Pedal, a multigenerational charitable ride through Bay Village, raised $25,000 in its first year. Volunteers, including high school students, helped develop the project. Another drive is Project Leaf, in which students offer to rake residents’ leaves for donations.
As for what’s next, Harrell says demand is ever-increasing, and the organizations facilities are being maxed out. The number of clients has grown 400 percent since the organization began.
