I just listened to this right now; this version is partly incredibly fast! Very creative take by Furtwängler there.

Indian Drivers…

…at night; driving without their lights on,
Straight, filthy roads with holes and dead cows and men,
Coloured neon-gadgets on their windshields,
Driving with glazed eyes towards Nirvana.

Between the worlds

Ikebukuro: Chinese immigrants playing Mahjong in the next room- shouting. The walls made of thin wood with broad slits at the bottom and the top- the smoke drifting through. I was reading a pulp called: 'Tale of a Bounty Hunter'.In the morning it got crowded in the communal shower-room. I stayed there for two weeks.

The markings of a man

On a recent trip to Sicily I have noted some features on many of those tough, bucolic but honourable people that spoke of the hardships and experiences of their adventuresome lives. They were: tattoos, scars, missing limbs and physical deformities like bent noses or lop-sided mouths that gave their expressions more impact. To those I would add prominent beards that are not typical on that particular island but elsewhere they could also mark the man of experience hardened in various battles and struggles against the forces of nature.
Two of those I happen to have myself already, but the older one gets, the more likely one is to accumulate others in the course of ones journey.

'To Tassle!'

As I have said earlier in this spot, I had played with the thought of getting some tassle loafers, so the other day I bought these at a local young and upcoming shoemaker's shop- in order to 'try them out'. Sofar I quite like that design- very confident and self-assertive!
