 "Come With Me... Into The Sea Of Love...!"
Hmm... who sang that, again?!? *lol* 

Aquaficionada Mermaid &

But to answer the original question...

Never mind who sang what; I have found my orchestra, at last!

Here it is:

November 4, 2009
Muses of Aqua
Luminous World Orchestra

Film-score composer Steven Chesne created the Luminous World Orchestra in order to merge the music of meditation and yoga with the sweeping, emotional, grand orchestral music he creates at his day job. The results on the LWO's debut, Deva, were astounding, and for their sophomore follow-up they do not disappoint, taking the same approach and going even deeper into the zone where mysticism and classicism combine and form new beautiful, new visions in the clearing mist. Utilizing orchestra music's potential for conjuring emotional responses, and with an ear for transcendence and beauty, the Luminous World Orchestra hums with inspired late-night brilliance. It’s the perfect soundtrack for meditations the night after a session of deep massage or acupuncture, when toxins and long-repressed emotions come suddenly pouring out in gushes of tears and grateful sighing.

Such a key moment is heard early on in the gorgeous "Grassland," which hovers in a field with beautiful woodwinds that sound slow and dreamy in an elegiac meditation over deep, supportive strings. A single flute rises softly above the rest for the high-end plaintive note before surrendering the center back to the strings, which roll over it all in a forgiving, cleansing sweep. "Beautiful Release" explores the Asian environment with the exotic erhu violin and chunky bells and harps rummaging amidst the strings supporting the crying erhu.

The mood of wistful sad reverie continues beautifully with the hypnotic mournfulness of "Twilight Flight," which lives up to its name. It’s a flight seeming to be going home from visiting a beautiful place and perhaps leaving the love of your life behind, with moody, deep string passages underwriting cycling acoustic guitar and, finally, uplifting flutes. Emotional and deeply satisfying on all levels, Muses of Aqua lives up to its exotic title, creating something at once both dizzyingly beautiful and hypnotic, all without ever being over the top or commanding attention with sharp, jagged atonal edges or sappy interludes. The Luminous World Orchestra is something you can play for your cool friends who blanche at more "earnest" New Age music, creating instead an ideal mood for writing long, sad letters to faraway lovers, or just gazing out the window on a cloudy day, as well as for meditation or healing work. With the LWO, there is no difference between art and illumination, and even the depths of the sea can feel your love in their soft, pulsating waves.

If you got here via the tortuous DC route (DC message boards = stripcreator luminous cartoon strips = luminous blog = and finally here!) - well... good!

I only want the ones capable of finding their way here to see this anyway! *lol*

AQUAMAN and his large extended supporting cast were of great interest to me once - and, as you will see reading this blog's entries, I had planned a long and entertaining saga for the Sea King!

Too bad that, when I did approach DC about it, thrilling tales of undersea adventure that would have repercussions (rippling waves, verily!) throughout the DCU were not of interest to the small-minded editors (who are no longer employed by DC, mind you...)

Still... who knows?
Maybe NOW my ideas have a chance to impress somebody...

If not AQUAMAN and DC per say - some other folks with some other aquatic epic (hint hint) that I keep under wraps... but no - not Namor! Never Namor! *lol*

For I have since developed my very own aquatic saga, yes...

The material found here though is what I had for AQUAMAN - exclusively.

My own babies - I always keep under wraps! It is called smart business! ;)

This may be only fan fiction hence - but the truth remains that it is better than 99% of the sanctioned, official, true-blue Aquaman stuff published by DC since the character's creation in 1941!

Yeah - I am that confident and I am that good!

As the other guy says - excelsior!
But I prefer to go - "woooooo!"

You hear music?
Tis aqua music!

Although the first track only really has some aquatic elements in the video (a whales swims by a number of times, in thin air... to see that, and to see all the videos, scroll down to the bottom of this page - not the bottom of the sea!).

The first track is a sort of anthem to the end of a dream... my childhood dream of writing AQUAMAN I guess!

Sure helps that Linkin Park and I share the same initials and attitude - otherwise, I don't identify much with these punks! *lol*

Track 2 is really some Atlantean content... check it out!

Next - the Renderers might render you numb... and maybe seasick as well, with "High Seas"!

Two funny tunes (and videos) follow - by Nova Mob and Phil Collins respectively. These two will take you back to 1911 and 1912. Memorable years for seamen...

Sebastian C (...) vaunts the merits of life beneath the waves next...

That is followed by a classic by good ol' Bobby D!

The British Sea Power come on next for a double bill (no invincible armada here, but still...!)

At that point, I hope the playlist has not hit a snag and is still moving full speed ahead...!

Sometimes it does not :(

If such is the case, click any title on the playlist to be taken to - and watch the ones you want one by one!

Next one in line is strongly recommended too: TIDAL WAVE by a band called LONGWAVE.

If you will bow your heads (and shake you head in disapproval of the pollution of our seas we are responsible of...) you will want to "Pray for the Fish" with Randy Travis...

Row Da Boat is there only as a joke... worry not...

Beck's "Lost Cause" is there to reflect that the opinion of many may be affecting DC's handling of AQUAMAN... and sure would affect AQUAMAN himself, were he not a fictional character...!

I had to have a track by HOOTIE & THE BLOWFISH...

(Sorry though - no Fishbone! I never liked their stuff!)

Alanis sounds like Atlantis, so... *LOL* Just kidding... her "Thank You" video makes me think of "Splash"... A naked nymph on the streets of a big city... and not half as ditzy as Daryl Hannah was in the movie in question either...!

(Still - Alanis has nothing of a deity - y'hear me, Kevin Smith? No - I didn't like everything about Dogma...)

Ozzy's No More Tears - well... the girl is weeping an ocean, clearly...!
Plus - I am not crying over lost opportunities - NEVER AGAIN!

I reserve the right to run the gamut of OTHER EMOTIONS about it though - just like Marillion and surely Aquaman would too - hence the MAN OF A THOUSAND FACES track...
(Well, Marillion has a name of predilection too... of course...)

Next, more about me than about Aquaman too, is the track "In The Crossfire" by STARSAILOR...

The Ocean Blue is another little-known great band - their song "Drifting And Falling" proves it without a doubt, I believe...

The Seahorses are like AQUAMAN... and like me too... TONS OF POTENTIAL... and no one gives them (us) a really good chance...!


NEXT - We had to hit THE SHORE... eventually!
I could have done worse - I could have sought something by Dinah Shore! *lol*

Back to the brine we go with Dan Dyer (although he is singing on the beach - it is as close as he can get to the GREAT OCEAN... I guess!)

Bizarroid Bjork's OCEANIA follows...

The excellent ballad OCEAN by Hanna-McEuen comes after that (again - if the playlist doesn't act up!)

Another bizarre band - called "Swallow" - is next; with their Oceans And Blue Skies
(highly reminiscent of "Snow" by the forgotten Electric Circus...)

Tori Amos makes it to this list, simply because of 1,000 OCEANS (it took that many to convince me - yes... though a redhead, she is no contender to play Mera - and she is as bizarre as Bjork is - in her own way! But I am digressing...)

Ol' Captain Crowe himself... or should I say Captain Jack Aubrey "Master and Commander" of the sea (is he?) - is next! He acts - he sings - he does it all... Sure, he was believable as an old sea dog... as a virtual maniac (in Virtuosity)... as The Insider... as A Beautiful Mind... as Gladiator... maybe even as Cinderella Man (!)
But for me, he'll always be the neo-nazi of Romper Stomper - who bites the... sand in the end!

Josh Groban's Oceano - LIVE! - is up next...

An... ocean away is Fastball's "You're An Ocean"

Two trailers (hoping both work) for AQUANOX follow...

The AQUABATS (an amalgam of Aquaman's power with Batman's zanyness? Hmm... maybe!) had to make the cut here - for levity's sake!

Aqualung just has the name that fits with this blog - his tune could be an ode to the Aquaman-Mera love story though (instead of one to Kutcher's tryst with the umpteenth on-screen love we see in the video - or even his fascinating love story with the sexy older woman Demi! Heh-heh-heh...) ;)

That's it - that's all - THAT'S ENOUGH!

Enjoy the music...
and, most of all, the reading material here!

Some nice visuals to look at as well, in the archives and all over, to get everyone in the mood for marine activities...

Too bad you can't take this to the beach with you, hmm?
(You might, but... I doubt you will!)

Blessings through all the tidings!

Were I able to add exactly the videos I wanted here... the "aqua" quotient would REALLY be met full throttle and head on!

Toad The Wet Sprocket's "Walk on the Water" as appetizer (!)

Donovan (either helped out by Medieval Chicks - or not!) and his "Atlantis" classic is a must... of course...

Genesis' "Home By The Sea"
Enigma's "Out From The Deep"
In Tua Nua's "Seven Into The Sea"

Sting's "Island of Souls" (although, honestly, I am not even sure they made a video for that one!)

Sarah McLachlan's "Drawn To The Rhythm of the Sea"

Sarah Brightman's "Captain Nemo"

The Tragically Hip's "Nautical Disaster" (a tad better than Phil Collins' "Hang In Long Enough", I think...)

Rush's "Force Ten"

The Who's "I Am The Sea"
("Sea And Sand" too...).

Rock & Hyde's tongue-in-cheek opus, "Dirty Water" (that is Paul Hyde - not Mr. Hyde!)

The Doobie Brothers' "Daughters of the Sea"

Shakespeare's Sister's "Run Silent, Run Deep"

This Mortal Coil's "Song To The Siren"

Red Rider's "Ocean Blue"

Some French flavor with
Marie Laforêt's "Mon Village Au Fond De L'Eau"
Marie-Claire Séguin's "L'Île"

The theme from ANTARCTICA

Basia's "Time And Tide"

Lena Horne's "Stormy Weather"

Simon & Garfunkel's "Like A Bridge Over Troubled Water" - of course!

The Lovemongers' (really Heart) "Battle of Evermore"
(video shot on the beach - if I recall correctly! Good enough for me!)

Peter Gabriel's "Here Comes The Flood" (or... "Red Rain"?)

Streetheart's "Walk On Water"

A-ha's "We're Looking For The Whales"

and Sting's "The Wild, Wild Sea"

did I forget anything here?

I think so - yes!

Since I have Hootie & The Blowfish's "Time" playing here - I simply would have to add the much smoother and lyrical "TIME" by Alan Parsons Project
(with lyrics such as "gone forever" and "to the sea" - you know you can't miss with this one!)

There will probably be more additions to this "wish list"...

But they will NOT include the themes of Sea Hunt... Jaws... Flipper... or SeaQuest DSV!


And just because Captain Crowe made it, it does not necessarily mean that Popeye will either...!


Aye - confiant et arrogant!
French use is still "in vogue" - correct?

If not... confident and impudent!
Happy now?

Thanks for providing such great informations about best acne treatment products.

1:03 AM  
Blogger Luminous (\ô/) Luciano™ said...

Aw, do not mention it, Debra...
No, really - DO NOT!

All of those wondrous ''acne products'' you speak of there

(... zenmed... ZENMED! They do have a name - and it is ZENMED!!! And they are actually for treatment of a variety of skin problems -rosacea and other stuff- not strictly ACNE! Unless you mean some other products there... hmm? I wouldn't know, you know; because I don't click on the links in my comments nor do I recommend anyone else does after me!)

they're gone... GONE from my blog!!!

And so is the playlist (including PYRAMID SONG by RADIOHEAD and DEPECHE MODE... with its PRECIOUS!)

But there is always YouTube for all that...

And water and soap for your skin!


6:34 PM  
Blogger Luminous (\ô/) Luciano™ said...

Aside from that...
Debra - are you an Aquaficionada?
Sure you are...


If nothing else -at all- these ''aqua musings', of mine have begotten these: the terms ''aquaficionado'' and, from there, with my luminous trilingual genius, the more popular, far curvier for sure, enthralling ''aquaficionada'' which adorns this blog from top to bottom!

What began as a mere cute -and luminous, surely- play on words has become emblematic of this blog, verily!

It is so true that, now, Aquaman and all the other aquatic heroes we speak of time and again have actually taken a backseat to the Aquaficionadas! It's Aquaficionada Mania - more than just a fad, it is a revolution! And, besides, this blog always professed to have muses in its depths, at its core; backing it, empowering it! What better form of that -heck, what better form of girl power - could there be than... an Aquaficionada!? The answer is obvious...

We are at work on various t-shirt designs to honor that already, as we... blog!

Hence, ultimately, who cares if all of our gizmos, zenmed ads, playlists go kaput here, over time?

It was odd to see playing tricks on us, though, for darn sure - whenever we use its damn codes!

Before it went completely AWOL, the playlist was most erratic indeed; what was supposed to be Linkin Park's "In The End" had turned into... Lindsay Lohan's "Over"

A sign of things to come!
But what truly odd about this though was that we liked it! We had come to like the switch! LL is a better singer than LP's! And we do not mean the lesbian singer who goes by the name LP now... That's another story! "Over" is a very good song!
Before it, we never knew Lohan could actually sing!

The version of it that we were imposed through Videocodezone shenanigans -plucked from YouTube feeds- was some fan-made montage which featured clips from some telenovela, by the looks of it; we have no idea who the actors on the video are - evidently the two protagonists of a suffocatingly-troubled love story on some soap opera time forgot... but the ensemble was good!
Very good!

A troubled love story that echoes the couple formed by Aquaman and Mera pretty darn well... (here's hoping they are not going in that direction with the film version starring Jason Momoa and Amber Heard! The buoyancy of the franchise might be ruined... resulting in no sequels!)

The unexpected switcharoo sure beat the alternative... temporarily though it was to be! For, as we know, the whole playlist would soon go "dead"! Snif, snif!

Same scenario unfolded with Deezer...

Eventually we were left only with YouTube indeed as a reliable source of media back-up!

Through the years that playlist (simply titled ''AQUA'' - what else) expanded, as YT finally succumbed to public pressure to stop limiting the playlists at ''merely'' 200 videos... This one is nearing a 500 videos total now; with some homemade productions in the mix that feature Aquaficionadas, sure... but not only that!


6:11 AM  
Blogger Luminous (\ô/) Luciano™ said...

(continued from above - darn 4096 character-limit on Blogger comments...!!! How odd is that too; why not 5000 characters, dammit?!? Anyway...)

And as we saw the Zenmed ad campaign run its course (the aqua rug was pulled from under our feet, really!) just as Poseidon vanished (!) from the bottom of the blog... Heck, even our precious adopted virtual pet Lutchy threatened to swim away at some point... (thanks a lot, bunnyherolabs - what's your next move? A virtual ransom note?) we came to the realization that everything is ephemeral indeed - even when it pertains to aqua musings!

The tides will take it all away - one day!

And whether we are Luminous Luciano, an aquaficionado, Aquaman himself, Poseidon, Glaucus Bioluminescence or whatever else we would love to be known as...

We are not eternal - not in this medium at any rate!

What happened to the friendly rival ''Aquaman Shrine'' recently proves that...

Imagine that; just as Aquaman is experiencing his most popular time in all of media... that so-called shrine goes belly up.

We don't even want to know what this entails for the third ''Aqua-obsessed'' site out there - that which belongs to a certain Eskimo Girl...

We are afraid to go there!

Best of luck to all, in all future endeavors - that is all that we can say!

As for ''aqua musings'' here -
we will continue to update, monthly...

Even though Aquaman is published bi-monthly now! He even had three series for a while! Peak times for the character, we told ya!

AQUA A.N.N. is a fixture here -
and yet another Aquaficionada!

She should get her own Blogger account though! LOL

Luminous Luciano - the sire of the luminous Aquaficionada (and father to aquaficionados too; like it or not, down under!) will continue to update it as well - as long as the waters are pleasant to do so...!

We're not going anywhere!

We have many other aqua projects -and adventures - in the works besides this blog, after all...!

Blogger Luminous (\ô/) Luciano ™ has more to say yet...

Make that "Pundit Bandit Of A Blogger Moi"...!

Mercy Reef has sunk like the Titanic - but nothing's ever "all bad", nope!
(That was way back in 2006... I do believe?)

Indeed, it never is "all bad news" here or in life in general, I assure thee - never!

The Mercy Reef postponement can and should logically lead to a feature film, with an A-list actor to play A-Man too! (At the time it occurred, all indications pointed at the casting of, most probably of all, Paul Walker - unless you were one of those who believed Dicrapio was to be it, as IMDB listed for the longest time?)

The buzz ''MERCY REEF'' generated on the web (leading to sales on iTunes and the creation of a special issue on DVD, to be "given away" along with a Smallville DVD set... Ha!) is very real "buzz" - as real as any "buzz" can ever hope to be!

But, as it usually is with huge corporations or entertainment conglomerates, they were slow to realize it... or act on it...

The movie to be directed by James Wan with an all-star cast that appears to be rock-solid too (no pun intended; as there are no cameos planned by either that Rock guy nor the Batty one!) is set - it will take place...

And it will be somewhat of a HORROR film - taking full advantage of the ALLURE OF THE SEAS and ATLANTIS...

That was MY TAKE ON IT - years ago!

I would be remiss, also, not to mention that it is amazing to note how aqua musings and its constant stance of opposing AQUA to BATTY has influenced DC so damn much that they paired them up together as THE marquee team-up on the cartoony farce that they made out of THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD, first of all - and then pitted the two constantly at every other turn...

Will I get residual income now, DC?

Or at least a tidbit of credit - like Mort & Bob?


9:23 AM  
Blogger Luminous (\ô/) Luciano™ said...

First few ''comments'' here were, obviously, additional words of welcome, as you could easily assess by yourselves, folks...!

I deleted some of them, as they addressed things that were only ''actual'' five or even ten years ago...!

One thing that remains forevermore though: the quest to assemble the complete AQUA soundtrack! Two playlist providers failed us before, over that timespan - YouTube has not! And in the ever-expanding (neverending?) playlist embedded here, we have got pretty much every single tune from our must-have list:



VODA - Elitza Todorova & Stoyan Yankulov


FLOOD II - Sisters of Mercy



OCEAN FLOOR - Audio Adrenaline


DIVE - Tycho

STILL WATER - Daniel Lanois

OCEANS - Hillsong United

BEACHED - Orbital

AQUALUNG - Jethro Tull



Verily, the quest continues...
Lest it is the scavenging?
