Sunday Music

I am very sorry to disturb you, venerated reader, by violating the “old order” that you are used to – and actually post a “Sunday Music” on Sundays !
I blame the weather. It is grey and cold, and rains and rains and rains.
If you’d ask me what I did last week, I could not tell one “important” thing I did. I read, I slept (a lot), looked out of the window, rode my bicycle a bit around the village, all terribly exciting. I think I’ll leave for Suebia tomorrow – why hang around alone, when one can hang around in company ?
There I will try to avoid the news, it is all too depressing. I do not want to watch ruthless ignorance rule, it makes no difference in what direction one looks. There is no need for daily “updates” on the behaviour of the ruling scum, it’s all too predictable and deeply disappointing.

So let’s turn around and look at pleasant things, like MsScarlet‘s collages : Do not hesitate to visit her site, read her blog, and inspect her wares. But the Devon dervish not only does a “Sunday Music” too, she and Dinahmow of More Idle Thoughts host July Map Month, this summer’s must-be-there-event.
This all was triggered by Mr Inexplicable DeVice’s treasure map.
If you feel lost – help yourself, draw a map ! Look at other people’s maps, over the coming weeks they should be available via the blogs I mentioned. All together, each & single map, will contribute to an Atlas of Everything – that of course never existed, exits or will ever exist. A hopeful continuation of our futility.
What reminds me that some days ago wordpress let me know that I registered at wordpress nine years ago ; in fact my first wordpress post was published in June 2010, while my first post at all came up a little bit earlier.
Anyway.
Let’s hear some nice music : Today it’s a title called Canadian Sunset (Eng.), here in the version of Hugo WINTERHALTER (Ger., Eng.) and his orchestra (1956) with composer Eddie HEYWOOD jr. (Ger., Eng.) at the piano.
I hope you like the music, may we have a relaxed, and peaceful week ahead.

Sunday Music. The Original – on Mondays

Devon darling MsScarlet is dissatisfied with the “consistency” of this Sunday Music “event” : Sunday Music on a Monday, or – GOd forbid ! – on Tuesdays is “JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH” ; hence she “stages an intervention” and “from now on will be the hostess” of this gathering, offering tea & one crumpet per person (!), and for starters something subterranean by The Jam. Read her diatribe here. She also threatens her frightened readership with re-enactments of the Battle of Hastings. This shall happen “EVERY SUNDAY” from now on, until eternity.
One may be inclined to harbour some diminutive doubts.
Given cherished MsScarlet’s well known consistency in abandoning projects, the gentle reader may wait for next Sunday “on tenterhooks”, anxiously : Will she “select an appropriate tune” ? Will she “say something fitting about the philosophy of baking products” ? Will she turn her blog into a knitting blog, like the early Infomaniac once was ? Will there be cream allowed to the lonely, single crumpet ? What about the butter-stick “incident” ?

Speaking of Cream (Ger., Eng.), here’s a little song they performed towards the end of their reunion concerts in 2005, aptly titled We’re Going Wrong.
I hope you like the music, even when it’s a bit longer than usual : May you not err from the promised path, may we face a gentle week.
