I was kinda jovial with the last client on the line - at least she laughed at my jokes :)

Mood: in between :-) and :-(

[*] posted on 18-9-2022 at 22:25


Just came home from my first concert / watching a movie on the big screen experience, since all that covid mess started.
It was the original Nosferatu movie from 1922 accompanied by young german jazz pianist Michael Wollny together with members of the Norwegian wind ensemble. The music was entirely improvised and sounded less jazz than more like modern chamber music. There were lots of moments when i was sucked completely into the movie and forgot totally that the music just happened live.
Fun fact: The last concert I attended before covid, was the local radio symphonic orchestra accompanying the original King Kong movie from 1933 ;-)

Reading a book called "L'engrenage" (in French) by Seguei Jirov.
That guy worked in the KGB and he knew Putin.
And he doesn't like him a bit.

Every bad things I think about that ashole reveals to be true...

What do you mean? There should be! Hope it has nothing to do with the recent outage - I can't ask dad for help, he's busy getting his book published.

Edit: there's an edit post below the editor when you edit your post. It should work.

You're right. It works when it's in the text it seems. I tried once to correct a title and it didn't work. (maybe a temporary bug...). The button "Edit Post" could be renamed to "Submit Post" to avoid the impression of being caught in a loop of edit. Maybe it's just me. . .

I agree it's weird Mij, but once you get used to it, it's not difficult.

Went on another outing to the thrift store and bought a Flipsiders game - never thought I'd flind one! They're pretty cool in that late 80s-early 90s style - travel board games that are styled like a cassette. There are mini magnetic pawns in a little section at the top, a board folds out the bottom and there's a switch on the side you can pull back and let go so it makes a very satisfying VRRR! sound while the gears spin to show you how many steps you may move.

Unfortunately the spring is missing on mine - technically, since the game only has numbers 1-6 on the gears, you could use dice to play it, but where's the fun in that?

I have three of them now - one was actually my sister's, Chopper Chase, and the other was mine called Pyramid Adventure. When we looked up the rules like 10 years ago and played them again, we found that Chopper Chase stood the test of time and was still good fun. Pyramid Adventure - not as much. Dragon Master looks like it's nothing but dice rolling (cog spinning), so I think chopper chase still has the edge.

Cool! I hope I'll find that someday - however this was like the first time in more than ten years I found a Flipsider at a thrift store.

BF came back from his work in Mannheim - unfortunately my sister decided to drop by unexpectedly so the house is rather full - Í'm making a run for it and leaving with the BF earlier than expected.

Not quite, the Pompeblaere have a different shape. They're supposed to be leaves but their similarity to hearts has been noticed.

Personally, I prefer the other association with Friesland:

Today I found out that Dove Grey died in July. I was really surprised and sad. She sent me some ZPZ souvenirs when they weren't touring Omaha and I remember chatting with her way back when in Zappa Chat. :(

Bugger indeed!! I’ve never met her personally, but she’s been a voice in my life for a long time. I’m very saddened to hear this.
