Todd Rundgren with I saw the Light. From the 1972 double album Something/Anything?, which he recorded partly at home. Multi-instrumentalist Rundgren also used a Putney VCS3 synthesizer, a portable coffer-like analog device favoured by Jean-Michel Jarre, King Crimson, Klaus Schulze, Roger Waters, Brian Eno and other illustrious names.

Hat tip OutlawDaughter. Btw, she's 16. Making daddy proud!

Michael McDonald with I keep forgettin'. From his 1982 debut solo album If that's what it takes.

Just like now and then a Black band will make rock music with balls, think Living Colour, now and then a White dude will make awesome soul.

Slaap wel. Thx for staying tuned, I hope I can resume 'normal' operations in a month or so.

Once again sorry for the very light blogging. Last summer, my main supplier went bust. Or as good as. Production was erratic from June to mid-September, and after that stopped entirely. In August, I was scrambling to find alternatives, and I found them, but deliveries of the new brands will only start in earnest next week - in other words three months later. The reason is precisely the dire situation my main supplier finds itself in, because as a result the competitors had to suddenly cope with an increased demand, resulting in longer delivery times. Since early September my company basically has had no income to speak of, and it's high time we resume normal operations. Just staying somewhat afloat financially consumes all my energy.

Anyway, thought I'd share this video with you, via Dutch pundit site GeenStijl. It's about a islam-themed playground in Berlin.

There's tons of news in my own country, very little of it good. But right now I'm too f*cked up to write decent posts.

Nite. Have a nice weekend.
