You, Sir, have gone beyond mere quantification into quantumification !
And, have done it with grace, wit, and style.
I remain one of millions who ... appreciate you.
«... thank the gods that they have made you superior to those events which they have not placed within your own control, rendered you accountable for that only which is within you own control For what, then, have they made you responsible? For that which is alone in your own power—a right use of things as they appear.» Discourses of Epictetus Book I:12
"Holy crap!?" I hear you thinking!
"What's this? After all these months a new episode of the SOTW? "
Well yes indeed! Now that I spend some time working for myself I have some more time to listen to music again (and post about it)
Also, I read that some people missed the SOTW, so here it is again!
To start of with this new season of SOTW we have Tuomas Holopainen of Nightwish fame.
I stumbled upon this song when I checked out some music from his new project, Auri.
Apparently, Tuomas has a solo album based on the Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck.
All I can say is Scrooge has a good taste in music
Yeah, Once is an amazing album and I've listened to it a couple of times these past few weeks (because of this song actually). It was pretty much on repeat when it came out
Other than that I don't really listen to Nightwish though.
As coincidence has it, my favorite hard rock and metal magazine, Aardschok, has a "classic album" column and this month's classic is Once
Sorry for the Farcebook link. Couldn't find any other reference...
Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant Anonymous - The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never tell if they're genuine Winston Churchill, 1944 - Never argue with a fool. Onlookers may not be able to tell the difference. Mark Twain
Yet despite their availability, people seem to either not know they exist, or cant be bothered to spend the £50.
So in this mega snow storm (mega for Britain anyway) I put the socks on to go out and get some photos.
Of the few cars that had ventured out, they were all in trouble. Either abandoned or struggling to get up tiny inclines. Yet here was I driving around, in drifts up to a few feet deep, up and down hills, without any problems. I font get it. Why the hell not buy snow socks?
