Sunday Music

Sunday Music, Monday Edition

Time flies, even when one is busily doing nothing.
Of course no one never does “nothing” – there is always something “done” : Places are visited, pictures are snapped. And if this computer would be so nice to recognise & accept my camera (as it easily did before all those “updates” by microschuft) I even could show some of the mentioned pictures to you, venerated reader.
But on the other hand, there may be deep wisdom in this non-accepting of an ancient digital camera – aren’t there more than enough digital pictures flooding the web ? Why should I add a straw to the heap ? Most likely because it would tickle my vanity, ach vanitas, vanitas vanitatum
Now let’s hear some nice music : Mr Sonny STITT (Ger., Eng.) plays a title called Blue Prelude, it is found on his 1959 lp Sonny Stitt blows the Blues (Eng.).
I hope you like the music – may we all, especially MsScarlet – have a relaxed and stress free week !

Sunday Music, on Tuesday

Actually I’m not here. Here is no where.
I am pretty happy that nothing happens.
The sun shines, the moon glows.
So Mssrs PIZZARELLI (Ger., Eng.) and VIGNOLA (Ger., Eng.) perform Moonglow.
I hope you like the music, may it be peaceful in your world.

According to the weatherpeople the high temperatures in the middle thirties (Celsius of course) will stay with us until Wednesday. This evening rain will fall & on Thursday the big bang will come with thunder, rain and anything fun, so that we’ll find us from Thursday onwards in the mid-twenties. Man darf gespannt sein …
Yesterday while driving through the Rhine valley the thermometer showed 40°C outside. When we stopped for a drink, we sat for a minute or so in the car while the engine was idling, before I switched it off. When I opened the door the proverbial brick of heat hit me. One could feel it working itself through the soles of the shoes, every inch of tarmac was reflecting heatwaves. We stood in the shadow of a nearby tree and drank some water, but quickly decided that we had baked enough, and that the best place would be inside the cooled cabin of my friend’s car.
Her visit in Switzerland already had come to an end. I went in Southern direction by train, she picked me up, I drove the car home. The South-North rhinevalley Autobahn was stuffed, the stretch of the West-East-connection, from (roughly) the Frankfurt region towards Nuremberg I used, also was crowded ; the last South-North-part on the other hand was remarkably quiet, even relaxing to drive. She has spent a good time in the Swiss wilderness, and we ended the day with some beer under a tree, far from any tarmac, all nice.
Now without further ado some friendly Sunday Music. The Anouar Brahem Quartet performs live at the festival Les Suds (Fr.) at Arles (Ger., Eng.) in July 2016, the title is Halfaouine. BRAHEM (Ger., Eng.) is a Tunisian oud player of his very own right.
I hope you like the music, you can cope with the heat – may it be a peaceful week.

Blam

Political bla ahead, just skip / ignore if you do not like to read my nonsensical ideas about that man.

 

Yes, I did not want to write about the little fuehrer again, but something changed.
In the usual mix of disport, amusement, plain horror, despair, and mostly, disgust, I feel when I look at the little fuehrer’s actions on a nationwide, and especially, an international level, a new feeling has crept in : I feel fear.
Because I think that the next level will be reached soon, and it means violence.
I think the little fuehrer now slowly realises that there is still something called “law”. The trial of his crony is going on – and as far as I can see, the emphasis is put on the machinations around the money this particular crony shoved around between Ukraine and “the West”. I am sure that sooner or later the Bank of Cyprus will raise its ugly head. Latest when another lawsuit against another crony will start – and it will – the little fuehrer will realise that there is no way out.
Except, he overthrows the whole damn system.
And because we know that the only thing the little fuehrer is interested in, is his own arse, he will do anything to save this arse of his own.
Either the little fuehrer will start a foreign war, or he will enable unrest within the nation.
Most likely candidate for “a little war” is now Iran, but I think it is not viable – if someone explains to the little fuehrer that such an action would seriously harm the interest of Vlad. Big no-no.
And “Little Rocket Man” is seemingly working according to plan, so nothing sellable there.
Leaves us with a little civil unrest.
You may find this scenario ridiculous, the idea that the elected president of the US would enable something like a “civil war light” just to protect his arse. Breaking up this already shaky society along the lines of race, North-South, GOd knows what – he does not have to, this is already done, when you look at it – and then using violence, or allowing violence, to break up the federal state. Just to make him “El Supremo” – creatures like his actual attorney general will find a form & formulation for this.
I think this is pretty much what the little fuehrer wants. This would make him the great fuehrer. Finally above the law.
