I wanted to bring some photographs; yesterday I was walking “the high way” (YES! For you, XL.) and saw some things that looked very nice (mostly leaves, and branches, some views), but I did not carry an apparatus. Today I trullered too long in the morning – and what a gorgeous morning it was: Clear sky, marvellous colours, well some wind, still warm – and around midday large dark clouds started to roll in. It seemed to be the better choice to take “the short way” to avoid rain, and yes, the way back home in the early afternoon (by car) was rain-swept all in all.
Later in the afternoon I all of a sudden felt the need to re-organise my bookmarks. I found it frustrating when I went to some sites (not only blogs) and found no new posts – could not a kind of automated thingy take care of this? I never used the much hyped google thing that was abandoned lately; in fact I always used a list, either on my blog (on my blogger blog it was published until some mean person started to work down that list and make harmful comments) or in my browser, but it grows. So a “reader” or something would be nice. I found the “goodnoows“-reader by ZN working nicely, it accepts my blogs too – originally, as the name implies, it’s made for news sites. I find it works fast.
So I started to organise this, takes still a little time, but I guess it will be a working and comfortable solution. And I get rid of all these lists of blogs, news-sites. etcetc.pp. that fill different bars on my screen, things I would have to click on to see whether something changed or (mostly) not – now things will get delivered.
And then Lou REED (Ger., Eng., obit.) died. XL told me about it. It is a bit disenheartening … does my LP-collection slowly turn into a cemetery? A gallery of dead “heroes”? I mean Rory GALLAGHER (Ger., Eng.) is dead, J.J. CALE (Ger., Eng., obit) went this year, Wilko JOHNSON (Eng.) is not feeling well … the fat man (Ger., Eng.) from CrosbyStills’nNash (without Young! He killed all the harmony.) survived his liver transplant very well, DYLAN (Ger., Eng.) is doing well, the Stones are seemingly alive and kicking – but, yeah, die Einschläge kommen näher.
So the real important themes never go away – sex and death – and how to avoid them, HA! – and our little escapes become more and more precious. “These few Golden days”, as Lou REED sings here.
Hope you enjoy the song, and have a good week – and yeah, let’s survive it, a good aim in my actual mood. We need more Kirsche, at least tonight.
And by the way, please wish me luck, I have to write a pretty bitter email.
