Idiots from Indonesia

1,822 visitors, all from Indonesia, today left 902 times the same idiotic spam.
While deleting the 902 unknowns, giorginas, maddox pax, broklyn hazard, lehman kartojo, i gede putut and adhe donat, accidently I did also delete the latest comments on "Plethora & Wastefulness".

Sorry Mark and Andrew.

Laughing Lhursday*

Ah, yes, I see.
* [For first time visitors]:
Typo in the title?
Nah.
It's just that I would not let a tiny T spoil an avantgardistic alliteration.

Saturday Night Music



Dmitri  Hvorostovsky 16 October 1962 – 22 November 2017

On Sunday, May 7, Dmitri Hvorostovsky who after being diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2015 had had a hiatus, performed “Cortigiani, vil razza dannata” from Verdi’s Rigoletto before an adoring crowd, in Metropolitan Opera, New York.
It's so sad seeing him so weak. But his voice!

And here the "same", performed but four years earlier, on 19 August 2013

In 80 Words Around A Year


While perverse bastards felt fancy to call the war they started the year with "Operation Olive Branch"; while worldwide many people built walls around their heart; while there were natural, moral and ethical disasters galore, I was allowed to enjoy the best year of my life, so far, on this planet. And now I am looking forward what we shall make of 2019, the first months of which I am going to live and write in Spain. Happy New Year!
