Avant gardening. Proudly I present my first zucchini plant almost in bloom. Recipes follow when ripe for cooking.

Fuck it I am not apologizing again that my posting is barely and irregular. It’s the feel and energy. I am busy all day avant gardening, constructing, organizing plus some traveling. Don’t even have spare time pushing the pedals. My last bikecycle ride was half a year ago. So how do you expect me making time for posting. On my older age but still feeling 16 I need some sleep too. In the past I often criticized people about wasting time with sleeping. “Life is too short to sleep” I quoted. After being awake for 30 years I am now catching up and take at least 8 of the 24 hours for resting.
Traveling: It was good to see some snow on mountain tops instead of windmills, aerials, bunkers and satellite dishes. The latter is what they put on tops in Portugal, probably because of the lack of snow. After a long climb by hike or bike you finally reach the great view spoiled by industrial architecture. More about this trip upcoming posts.
Music: The Shina festival is ‘shaping’. More about this soon also. Still working on a new video plus some surprising free downloads in the download section. Soon, soon soon.
Did someone recently ‘show’ me 70ties footage of the Mahavishnu Orchestar (John McLaughlin). The poor guy didn’t know me. “This is not music” I yelled at him. What could he know? This guitar wanker McLaughlin gives me a headache. I tried his music. Went to Mahavishnu shows in the 70ties 4 times just to figure out what people ‘hear’ in this. I walked out of every gig after 20 minutes with a huge headache and I am somebody who barely suffers this brain-pain unless it is after a night of serious drinking. I did found out why McLaughlin always gave me a headache: It is no music. All people attending McLaughlin shows, buying his records/cd’s, downloading his tracks, linking on YouTube don’t like music! They don’t know what music is, at least they know what is NOT music: John McLaughlin. So what is John M? Fairly, I can only guess. Sports? An ‘Olympic’ competition in ‘how many notes can I play in one minute’? Or just bored people wasting their time strumming strings. Ahaa, someone told me its ‘jazz’. Ohhhh, what does that mean? Jazz is music, at least all jazz I listen too. But let that be an answer: There seem to be a non-musical jazz: John McLaughlin!
