[reading] Знатокам Адамса

Два вопроса:

  1. Имеет ли Ford Prefect какое-либо отношение к программному продукту Word Perfect?
  2. Имеет ли super-fly, об изобретении которого рассказывается в самом конце "So long…", какое-либо отношение к suepahfly, обессмерченному великим Джо?

[music] Brain's smartass on Tibet

Jonathan Dean, The Brain's reviewer, wrote in the recent issue:

It has never been more clear that David Tibet lives in a completely idiosyncratic sphere of his own. Perhaps this is true for everyone, but Tibet's world seems particularly out of step with current trends in music, culture and thought. There is something terribly admirable and beguiling about that. Hypnagogue beautifully proves that Current 93 is continuing in its tangential orbit, and exists solely as the outlet for Tibet's poetic musings on Christ, cats, children, dreams, piety, horror, death, dread, decay and apocalypse. You're not going to find any concessions to glitch-pop or retro-electro here. <…> Like many of Current 93's recent works, it's impossible to rate this album based on the music alone, which is mostly incidental. The main focus is on the poetry, and if the listener is not willing to carefully absorb Tibet's linguistic imagery, the point of the music is lost.


[music] Очередная посылочка из Канады

Прибыли три альбома do make say think. Ура! Начинаю грабить, само собой, с opus magnum под впечатляющим названием "goodbye enemy airship the landlord is dead".

А в другую посылочку злобные гады с CheapThrills невзначай забыли положить Зорна и set fire to flames. А денег взять в полном объёме, само собой, не забыли. Ща напишу сукам гневное письмо.

Update: "goodbye enemy airship the landlord is dead" просто-таки обжигает по-взрослому. Как dummitri и обещал, за что ему спасибо.
