An existential cry of a singularity in a bewildering Multiverse ! An eclectic collection of my life events, thoughts and vistas through my Nikon a Biro and sometimes inspiration from others I meet on my journey!
If you are wondering; “Die Seinsfrage” is a famous philosophical question, “the question of being”, posed by Martin Heidegger; who was reflecting on Edmund’s Hurrserl maxim “to things themselves !”
I hope to explore and reflect on in the coming posts and rants, as well as sharing some of my life experiences and vistas !

At 19, I read a sentence that re-terraformed my head: “The level of matter in the universe has been constant since the Big Bang.”
In all the aeons we have lost nothing, we have gained nothing - not a speck, not a grain, not a breath. The universe is simply a sealed, twisting kaleidoscope that has reordered itself a trillion trillion trillion times over.
Each baby, then, is a unique collision - a cocktail, a remix - of all that has come before: made from molecules of Napoleon and stardust and comets and whale tooth; colloidal mercury and Cleopatra’s breath: and with the same darkness that is between the stars between, and inside, our own atoms.
When you know this, you suddenly see the crowded top deck of the bus, in the rain, as a miracle: this collection of people is by way of a starburst constellation. Families are bright, irregular-shaped nebulae. Finding a person you love is like galaxies colliding. We are all peculiar, unrepeatable, perambulating micro-universes - we have never been before and we will never be again. Oh God, the sheer exuberant, unlikely face of our existences. The honour of being alive. They will never be able to make you again. Don’t you dare waste a second of it thinking something better will happen when it ends. Don’t you dare By Caitlin Moran (via falltospring)

More musings of unshackled minds

27 Nov 1942 - 18 Sept 1970 
Just if he were alive today
Still sorely missed but constantly remembered !
If only you were playing for us today

Despite some claims, I do not believe Jimi pressed a self destruct button, he (and we) paid the price of his genius - A genius that led to him being vulnerable and excessive. Wine and narcotics have never made the greatest bed fellows, no matter how good the trip was !
Unbelievably, 40 years on and there are those of us who still adore and admire his virtuosity and originality, which, ironically is so often “copied” nowadays.
RIP Jimi - your memory and music lives on for all of us.

Reliving the past - Part 2

Well, I played Aqualung and was not disappointed, except this was a anniversary version with strange and bonus tracks and an interview. I like the re-mastering but do we really need old random tracks ?
Having enjoyed rekindling my friendship with Tull I focussed my ear on Genesis. Then there were Three, well what a mixture of unengaging, flat, lifeless, banal musak, Wind and Wuthering is slightly better ! I will play both, but as background music as neither really demand my attention.These latter albums are really poor compared to earlier masterpieces of Selling England by the Pound, Tresspass, Nursery Cryme, Trick of the Tail, Foxtrot, etc.
The tracks on the latter albums pale into insignificance compared to those classic, theatrical and engaging gems such as Firth of Fifth, Music Box, Battle of Epping Forest, Watcher of the Skies, Robbery, Assault and Battery, Return of the Giant Hogweed, Get em out by Friday, etc. All these add to my aural enjoyment, which is topped off with the seminal Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. That completes my collection !


Next, well I think may revisit a little known progressive Norwegian Rock band from the early seventies; Tassavallen Presidenti ! II saw them at the Chez Club (AKA the Red Lion) Leytonstone High Road).
