I was not directly lazy over the last week. At least I went to the library two times searched for articles, found and scanned some; in vain at last, because it was for a small project that flitted by and vanished very fast – it was a nice idea but on further inspection we found people already working on it; so, good luck and thanks for the coffee.
I stumbled into the institute where I have spent some years studying, working, peeping out of my jacket in a silly way – and that was that, some things simply are over: A cup of coffee and a little gossip – well, yes, thank you and good luck and all.
Finally one of my customers was reachable and promised to send over some bucks – decent fellow! Kohle, Asche, Patte, Kies, Moos, Schmeer, Knete, Kröten, Mäuse – in short: Penunze (Ger., Eng.), or radix malorum (Eng.). The other customer was not reachable, or at least could not be brought to declare when they’d finally would be willing to cough up. Sadly my try to land the lottery win failed again this weekend, so I’m in no position to spit in the dust and ride into the sunset, every inch a proud independent cowboy – what I’d never do by the way. I find spitting absolutely disgusting and I have no experience with horses whatsoever, the lovely animal would carry me anyplace it would like. I’d prefer a modest journey with a donkey in the Cevennes (Ger., Eng.).
A nice place to be and waste time through last week was youtube. This Sunday Music is no gentle foxtrot, but something from the fusion-jazz-corner. 40 years ago the master drummer from Panama Billy COBHAM (Ger., Eng.) published the album Spectrum (Eng., not the ZX (Eng.)), where we find a song called Stratus (Ger. Eng., on fog). COBHAM earlier played with Miles DAVIES, and in the first Mahavishnu (Eng.) Orchestra (Ger., Eng., book) of John MCLAUGHLIN (Ger., Eng.).
Last year the gentlemen Scott HENDERSON (guitar) (Ger., Eng., fan site), Jeff BERLIN (bass) (Ger., Eng.) and Dennis CHAMBERS (drums) (Ger., Eng.) published their version. It needs a bit of volume I think. I hope you enjoy it, and have a peaceful week!
