A silly video with fish in it

Death by Sushi’ Fish can kill me. When I was very small (maybe 3 or 4 years old) my grandfather, who lost the sight of one eye from a bullet fired by a German sniper (fortunately not a very good one) during the Battle of the Somme in World War 1, wiped my face with the corner of his apron, an apron he had used to wipe his filleting knife on. He was a grocery shopkeeper who specialized in wet fish. I think I am an artist (?)

A misogynist is a person who hates or doesn’t trust women


Misogynist is from Greek misogyn?s, from the prefix miso- “hatred” plus gyn? “a woman.” The English suffix -ist means “person who does something.” Can also mean entrenched prejudices against women.

This is the latest track to be released by This Window

Was a good day, a good day for the fish

 

Original sin: Ancestral sin, is the Christian doctrine of humanity’s state of sin resulting from the fall of man, stemming from Adam’s rebellion in the Garden of Eden. This condition has been characterized in many ways, ranging from something as insignificant as a slight deficiency, or a tendency toward sin yet without collective guilt, referred to as a “sin nature”, to something as drastic as total depravity or automatic guilt of all humans through collective guilt. Guilt is a pointless emotion, we all steal (I’ll steal any creative idea if I want to make it mine) lust (I adore your arse) and indirectly murder – I don’t give a shit about sin (maybe?) so fucking sue me.

Knossos – taught the Romans all they knew

Loved visiting Crete, great food, great beaches and the place where civilisation was born (maybe?).

If you put ‘art’ into a chronology, then without a doubt the skills and realistic / mythical design and output of the Cretians is far more advanced than any other civilisation that was about at the time. Their representation of the real world was fluid and not as primitive as other civilisations at the time.

Knossos Is an inspiring place for the artist and engineer.

The site was discovered in 1878 by Minos Kalokairinos. The excavations in Knossos began in AD 1900 by the English archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans (1851–1941) and his team, and they continued for 35 years. The palace was excavated and partially restored under the direction of Arthur Evans in the earliest years of the 20th century. Its size far exceeded his original expectations, as did the discovery of two ancient scripts, which he termed Linear A and Linear B, to distinguish their writing from the pictographs also present. From the layering of the palace Evans developed de novo an archaeological concept of the civilization that used it, which he called Minoan, following the pre-existing custom of labelling all objects from the location Minoan.

The palace of Knossos was undoubtedly the ceremonial and political centre of the Minoan civilization and culture. It appears as a maze of workrooms, living spaces, and storerooms close to a central square. An approximate graphic view of some aspects of Cretan life in the Bronze Age is provided by restorations of the palace’s indoor and outdoor murals, as it is also by the decorative motifs of the pottery and the insignia on the seals and sealings.

The palace was abandoned at some unknown time at the end of the Late Bronze Age, c. 1380–1100 BC. The occasion is not known for certain, but one of the many disasters that befell the palace is generally put forward. The abandoning population were probably Mycenaean Greeks, who had earlier occupied the city-state, and were using Linear B as its administrative script, as opposed to Linear A, the previous administrative script. The hill was never again a settlement or civic site, although squatters may have used it for a time.

Windows 10 is a surprise #windows10 #Windows10fail

Self Portrait taken with iPad

There are a lot of privacy issues with the new Windows 10 but if you go beyond this it is actually pretty good. A bit like updating from Windows 95 to Windows 98 – at the time this was a massive improvement and I hate to say this…

Windows 10 makes using a Microsoft operating system as easy and as economical as using an iMac (God forgive me).

I uploaded 10 to my workhorse that ran 7. This computer has non available Mac programs on it and is one that I use to create, monitor and SEO client’s websites on. It was always a little sluggish and layout / design retrospective. The new system is quick and looks modern and is app driven – the new workspace is clean and slick.

Am I converted?

Review – Finish The Story – The Sampler #05

“…now their inclusion had been settled five Finish The Story tracks. ‘Playing At Life’ is even better with a mean throb, and more of his sublimely catchy, nagging guitar with Nicola’s unusually piercing vocals and a weirdly spooky synth. ‘Solace’ is more relaxed, actually far more towards the This Window style, being like ambient bellows, billowing………..and there’s an intriguing little slice called ‘Ripples In The Water’ at the end too.
