Acts of vile heinosity require equally powerful acts of removal from our environs.

They have agendas deep and wrong. Only then can we truly have peace.

I am not an atheist, by the way. I believe in the force, that all things are sentient and connected by the force. Sorry about the name. I suppose I could use Æther or something, but it’s not adequate for describing the force.

Nice piece of work, this.

Might see this inside my mind. The chaos. The discord. Thoughts by the million. All together, now.

Was better as a young boy. But some one or some thing, or ones or things, at some point, tore everything down.

Repair crews are occasionally entertained. Some of their salves are alright for awhile.

Ah. Too late, Nathan.

If You Open a Watermelon and See This, Throw It Out!

Published on Feb 10, 2018

How to choose a good watermelon? If you buy a watermelon that has cracks inside, throw it out! If you decide to eat it anyway, it can do some serious damage to your health.

I was intrigued… so here it is.

Definitely worth the time, in my humble opinion.

Especially concerning the bit about volk mit diabetes being able to eat it, as that’s me and I l o v e (and miss) watermelon.

I was taken by the most pleasant surprise when this musical genius friended me on youtube.

I was horrified to learn later that he had fallen on extremely hard times but never did find out what happened whilst in amazement that no one was helping him. Did anyone ever tell Peter?

REVIEW/AMG Joe Viglione

This solo album from Fleetwood Mac singer/songwriter Daniel David Kirwan has the future producer for Human League and Buzzcocks, Martin Rushent, utilizing those skills here, as well as engineering.

The sound is crystal clear, and a feather in the cap for Rushent as well as Kirwan. It starts off with an uncharacteristic “Ram Jam City,” which has more Lindsey Buckingham sounds than one would expect, especially since the two guitarists come from two different musical worlds.

“Odds and Ends” is more lighthearted, the kind of music Paul McCartney toyed with on The White Album’s “Rocky Raccoon.” What Second Chapter immediately sets forth is the importance of Kirwan as a pop artist, and how, despite Fleetwood Mac’s success after he left, his sounds could still have been beneficial to that supergroup. “Hot Summers Day” is a fine example of that, a beautiful song that could offset Buckingham’s gritty ramblings. It would have made a nice counterpoint as Stevie Nicks complemented Christine McVie’s tunes with her adventures, bringing an important change of pace to that popular band’s hits. The jacket looks like a dusty old family album-style book holding Kirwan’s Second Chapter. And the music reflects that old-world feel in titles like “Skip a Dee Doo” and “Falling in Love with You.”

Three of the best songs on this excellent outing are “Love Can Always Bring You Happiness,” “Second Chapter,” and a sleepy and beautiful number called “Silver Streams.” Kirwan’s tune is haunting as well with its lilting “all you need is love to show you the way from here” chorus. As on a follow-up album, he tends to sound a little like the group America, the vocals with that same America tone and warmth. They very well could have covered “Silver Stream” or “Cascades,” the album’s final track.

This material was crafted right in the middle of America’s run of hits, and maybe they should have replaced Dan Peek with Dan D. Kirwan? The artist’s three solo discs cut in the ’70s make for a very pleasant and thought-provoking listening experience, and that this collection is so good only shows he kicked his departure from the big band off with a vengeance.

This here’s my current 2-track, a long-discontinued ML-9600 (gen 1, even!).


And the one I’d like to get.


It’s kiester.


QUAD Elite series, kiester shot of one of my dream thingies, the QMP Mono monoblock power amplifier. Sweetness.

Trivia for ya… the company name has nothing to do with the number four in any way. An acronym, it stands for Quality Unit Amplifier, Domestic. Hey, it was 1936. Way different time than now.


Always had a thing for QUAD, like McIntosh, Ampex and a few others, you know… stuff that “sez wut it duz and duz wut it sez.”


Due to internal deficiencies these types of things have always been and will likely always be far above the level of availability to an ignitoid lifeform.


But great fodder for dreaming.


Oo, the deliciousness.
