First, Nirvana with "In Bloom". We write 1992. It is the fourth and final single to be drawn from Nevermind.

Only recently did I learn that the song was produced by the somewhat legendary Butch Vig, who in the same time frame as In Bloom's release started with his own band, Garbage. Vig cut away parts of the original "In Bloom". His influence can also be heard in the way the guitars are layered. I do not know to what extent he had a hand in the video itself, which I always found pretty hilarious. The parodying of the sixties' decent boys outfits get me into a fold to this day, and Krist Novoselic' body language, Dave Grohl's wig and Kurt Cobain's facial expressions and glasses betray absolute genius.

The following track is called "The living sculptures of Pemberley" from the soundtrack of the movie "Pride and Prejudice" (2005), based on Jane Austen's novel of the same name. Composed by Dario Marianelli, it was performed by French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet and the English Chamber Orchestra. It is quite beautiful; if you are a romantic, sensitive, caring and somewhat sentimental individual like Miserable Fat Belgian Bastard, which is the other half of my schizophrenic personality, you will like it as well as the philm. Also, Jane Bennett, the blonde, Lizzie's sister, is quite hot. Hint: every motherf$cking immigrant who wants to become a decent citizen of the U of K should at least know who Jane Austen was, and preferably read at least one of her books.

That's all for today folks. The War On Islamic Terror re-begins at 1am Monday morning tops. Praise the Lord, damn the torpedoes, and pass the ammunition.
