I May Have Overreached This Time Around?

March 12th, 2017

I suspect that I may have overreached this time around (I’m not entirely convinced though, naturally)?

However, I’m not excluding the possibility that I may have crossed the border of “La répétition” this time?

The concept “rewind” make some people aggravated and at times even outright hostile. Although the reaction to the concept is not completely incomprehensible to me I would like to point out that they’re quite uncommon (publicly) and that they actually belong to a quite specialized practice.

Why would anyone even want to listen to the same intro 20 times in a row? Well, you would if it was an exceptionally good intro would you not? And besides that it is just culture. ; P.

And it is actually not entirely all my fault? Have you listened to the latest show yet? It is as a matter of fact nothing other than out-worldly good.

And yet “Melodifestivalen” airing/transmitted at the same time is supposed to be real? In the unreal world there are tracks called “Me show you” and “Don’t be stupid”? It is so confusing: “Melodifestivalen” or rinse.fm? What to choose? What is really, real now a days? What is the “real”? Point being? It is not a question that you should even be able to formulate*?

So, that is the parallel Universe that I’ve heard so much about?

That bass pressure? Seems real enough and I’m not sure I can handle it. I think I may surrender now. Decades later, I’m decisively not tougher than the rest… that’s concluded and all wrapped up now. Once and for all. I may simply have overreached.

London’s callin’ as always. But, it is the purpose re-education for the elderly or it is the gallows straight away?

* Mark Fisher. Unacceptable loss… what an absolute tragedy, pure talent lost, again… I will have to write something about that.

No, I have definitely overreached this time.
