Thursday, January 10, 2008That's five whole years, not counting its earlier 2001-3 incarnation as Unzen Koans
Perhaps the posts haven't been spilling from these pages as quickly as they once have, but if you believe the adage that each picture tells a thousand words, farkleberries has been as wordy as ever - if not more so. Lately I've let my trusty little digital camera describe the scenes and sights around me. This red C7 bulb, all fiery glow to warm a winter's night, is part of my latest photo series on Flickr.
Coincidentally, as of tomorrow (Jan 11th) my thirties will leave the building. I am oddly relieved.
The great thing about getting older is that you don't lose all the other ages you've been. ~Madeleine L'EngleAs fellow Capricorn Elvis always says, thanggyaverramuch....
The first forty years of life give us the text; the next thirty supply the commentary on it. ~Arthur Schopenhauer

Happy New Year, everyone...yes, I know it's a few days late, but you know how things get in the Midwestern Dead of Winter. It takes a few hot javas to melt the synapses. Enjoy this live version of XIII. Stoleti's "Elizabeth" from the 2003 Castle Party in its full 7:35 glory. A little less grand than the original, but more spontaneous - and Petr Stepán cuts loose with a rare guitar solo jam at the end. [Thanks to Torquemado for uploading the "Elizabeth" video to YouTube, and x4nthi for "Fatherland"]
