I went to a #dropkickmurphys concert in 2007 around Saint Patrick's Day. The Celtic melodies and Punk rhyhms appealed to my teenage angst, especially about not wallowing in it. They would remain on my playlist for a few more albums until I drifted away from music for a while.
Fast forward to #blackturtlepub in #belgrade where I heard #rosetattoo for the first time. I couldn't believe I missed this song when it came out. Thankfully I heard it about 10 times in 1 week. Serbs seem to like their celtic punk!
I intitially only wanted to learn the opening lick. One minute led to another and i tried the whole thing. Lots of intricacies to this song. I'm still amazed how many layers weave in and out as i relisten to the recording. I tried incorporating the banjo parts when the mandolin was silent to make the vid slightly less boring 😹
Maybe I'll fade out of music again, but this song will be tattooed in my mind for a long time.
Jupiter ♃ Mercury ☿ and Virtue
Artist: Dosso Dossi, 1524
The painting depicts Jupiter sitting at the easel and painting butterflies. Behind him there is Mercury, who
is turned towards the approaching Virtue and who is making a gesture ordering her to be silent so as not
to disturb the god who is preoccupied with his work.
The artist took the theme from the dialogue of the gods, placed in Virtus, a work of Leon Battista Alberti.
Virtue wants to complain about Fortune and the plight of the humans, but Jupiter does not listen to her, as
he does not want to enter into a dispute with Fortune.
