'A man [complains about] how indignant he is with

this or that in A, in B, in C, and so on, angers him.
He has not an inkling that he is simply talking about
his own characteristics. This peculiarity in human
beings was never so widespread as it is today.
And those who believe they are free of it, are the
greatest culprits. (Steiner, Berne, 1919)

"ich bin ein tier UND ein mensch" a member of two worlds i am, and leads the other--weaving--into and out of glory. i am storm, and i am star; yet here i stand above me, and tiller the rudder through what greets me in life. it is i am that decides; and loses it with disuse, when i do not follow it.

fifty mix CDs made for friends - in the course of making them, i did actually go out and BUY over 500 CDs. i support musicians, go to concerts, and i buy their music - i advise all those who recieve these samples from me to do the same. if you like what you hear, support them! buy some of their music; or go to a show. if you don't think this is fair-use, then know ye that you be grievous to the life of music, and begone!!

for any stuff on these pages that is my own (much of the photography, and the design for the covers) -- this is all copyleft -- so go read gnu, open-source will outlast proprietary formats.
