17. Living My Life

We don’t have a cassette player in the house, but we do in the car. Occasionally a cassette will finds it’s way into the house. Grace Jones - Living My Life (1982) was a tape called a 1+1, a pre-recorded album on one side with the ability to record another album of your choice on the other side.

A different country, another attic. We found this cassette of Donna Summer’s greatest hits when we moved in. We hadn’t unpacked our music so we played it on a borrowed boombox and danced around the empty house. It found it’s way to the attic where it became covered in sawdust while the house was re-roofed.

Having a good ol’ dig around the attic, I stumbled across my Dad’s reel to reel player. These things used to be the dog’s business back in the day… or so my Dad says. None of these little devices that store thousands of tracks… this beast uses 2 reels for one album!

Most of the world sees nothing above but the sun

Tuesday, 11th of October, 2005 @ 6:12am

"Most of the world sees nothing above but the sun, [...] They know not the horsehead nebula, the collars of Saturn like metal coils around the neck of a Benin princess, the vast black sinks of imploded matter like drain holes in outer space, the throbbing light of pulsars, atomizing suns, dwarf stars heavy beyond belief, red giants, the uncoiling galaxies. I am not talking about the jingoistic bus ride to the moon or the doggies woofing in weightless capsules among the planetary detritus, the petty and costly face slaps of the pudding powers. [...] No, the study of space unwraps the strangest and most exotic realities the human mind can ever encounter. [...] Nothing seems impossible in space. Nothing is impossible. All is strange and wondrous in that nonhuman void. This is why astronomers do not seek the company of any but their fellows, for no one else has seen the mysteries as they have. Theirs is a ghastly joy felt in exploding stars, in galactic death. They know the dim light of a star filtering through our filthy, polluted sky has been on its way to that moment for a thousand years. [...] Look into the sky and you are looking into time and nothing that you see is now – it is all so remote and ancient that the human mind quails and shrinks as it approaches. Listen, extinction is the fate of all species, including ours. But before we go maybe we’ll get a quick look at a blinding light.”

First ever picture of Earth and Moon from space.

This picture of a crescent-shaped Earth and Moon—the first of its kind ever taken by a spacecraft—was recorded Sept. 18, 1977, by NASA’s Voyager 1 when it was 7.25 million miles (11.66 million kilometers) from Earth. The Moon is at the top of the picture and beyond the Earth as viewed by Voyager.

+ REAL PHYSICAL PRESSURE?

Tuesday, 11th of October, 2005 @ 4:51am

image image image

Playing with the psp, our sensations are limited to the strain of ones eyes and brain… a few erratic muscle twitches. But nothing that can account for being aware of ones physicality, both in oneself and against ones opponent. A real future of unused bodies does not seem that far fetched really!

What if we combine 2 games:  psp v psp + human v human

THIS LI’L POEM IS FOR THOSE OF US WHO ARE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO VALUE OUR LIBERTY & FREEDOM >>>

LISTEN TO HER SINGING DON’T LET HER SING IN VAIN
IF YOU LISTEN CLEARLY YOU’LL SURELY FEEL THE PAIN
SINGING FOR HER FREEDOM SINGING FOR ANOTHER
IF YOU’RE PURE AT HEART YOU KNOW YOU WILL DISCOVER
WHY THE CAGED BIRD SINGS THE SADDEST SONG
HER SPIRIT ONCE FLEW FREELY THE JOY OF A NEW TOMORROW
HER HEART NOW IS CHAINED HER MIND FILLED WITH SORROW
SINGING SONGS OF FREEDOM SHE SINGS AWAY HER FEARS
IF YOU’RE PURE AT HEART YOUR SURLY TASTE THE TEARS
OF THE CAGED BIRD WHILE SHE SINGS THE SADDEST SONG
RAINBOWS ARE FOR DREAMERS SOMETIMES ANGELS FALL
YOU CAN MOVE A MOUNTAIN YOU CAN STILL STAND TALL
SINGING OUT FOR YOUR FREEDOM SING FROM HIGH ABOVE
IF YOUR PURE AT HEART YOU’LL SURELY FIND PURE LOVE
STILL THE CAGED BIRD SINGS THE SADDEST SONG

Keith Harris

Monday, 10th of October, 2005 @ 6:54am

In the 1980s, a ventriloquist named Keith Harris was a nationally known name in Britain. He had his own TV show, largely aimed at children, on which he co-starred with his two ‘talking’ soft toy creations, Orville and Cuddles. Eventually, his career began to wane, and he fell back on live appearances. But nothing could bring him back to his former glories, desperate remedies were required. Harris finally joined a touring bill of look-alikes. The twist was that Harris went on stage as a look-alike of himself.

A comment to Onkar’s Loaf Me Tender recipe. Try to replace the white bread with pre-toasted bread found at London Borough Market.
