For Ever, Ever, Ever And Ever?

Yes, for ever, ever, ever and ever.

Fabio & Grooverider on rinse.fm.

I can’t imagine a more beautiful thing on a crisp, bone-chilling Sunday in the very Northern regions of the civilised World.

Emperor Hadrianus was clearly a sensible man, he constructed the wall on an island mid-continental.

The unsurpassable Caeser left the Germanics to their own faith long before that, basically because he could not beat the bearded ones.

We’ve never even been close to seeing paved roads, any Romans or any others at all for that matter…

Mm, true I do not have a beard and the Germanics did drop by, but that was thousands of years later and as is a well known fact that they did not linger, here up north.

Sometimes you need to use capital spelled words… for ever, ever, ever and ever.

“‘Do not play that…’ [the track is called ‘Pistol Shot’], and even more somber times ahead, ‘seriously?’ ‘as the last tune, I got nothing that can follow that. I got nothing that can follow that.'” ‘That thing there…'”. I well better have a sit-down.

So, Twisted Individual is back? “Larry” that’s just more scarry than normal. The eternal breaks.

For ever.

11 (eleven) centigrade, still cold. There are some scholars that say it is due to the Gulf stream slowing down. If true then it will get even colder here up north or “You know nothing John Snow.”.

That is approx. 24 hrs worth of snow on my balcony rail. 100.00mm/3.93″ (and still falling).

I like this album a lot. It is so melancholic, it contains piano, cello and it is scaled down, yet dramatic.

I like the artwork, I like the label [sic!] and I like the (assumed) über-reference as well.

The title and the artist’s name must have been taken from the identically named 1960’s film directed by Jean-Luc Godard and starring Brigitte Bardot? Contempt (1963).

It is very strong word, in any language.
