You know…

… That’s it! I’m off to finish writing a joke that has been formulating in my text files for years!

… To end this writing session on a high note.

Like 4 weeks ago.

That, of course, can be said about a bunch of things like surfing, panting or repairing a damaged monocle, without the risk of repeating yourself. YUNNAAYA. But then again, who of us is to say when to completely stop regarding your emotions, and purely rely on rules, that were probably written by some Belgian, several hundred years ago?

It just sounds funny.

What you’re about to hear is almost effortless guitar playing. Gee whiz!

Both of the guitar tracks are (almost) edit-free. Yours truly played ’em in on one take, and the takes you hear are also the first takes. This post contains more takes than the tune. Amazing!

Well, to be perfectly honest, on the first guitar, I kinda missed final beat, so I was forced to cut the track, and move the latter part a bit. This was the (almost) from the previous paragraph.

This ain’t no honky tonk or donkey konk. This is SPLONKY DONK.

Fab Feb.

Welcome to February!

What a fabulous month this is! 28 days placed perfectly inside 4 calendar weeks. My heart sings a merry song everytime this kind of occurrences happen.

Funfact: 29th of February is in Finland commonly known as “karkauspäivä” (=the day of escaping).

So, sorry for all of you, who are in dire need of getting away: You’ll have to wait until 2024.

Also, MAKING FACES.

Also 2, this post contains a hidden & very childish joke.

Complete transcript of KENT REVISED would be small leaves in a big tree.

Me:

– Me after shower: “Hmm, should I put moisturizer in my face? Nah, I’ll put some tomorrow.” Me: Puts moisturizer.

– Me in the grocery store: “I feel like cooking some healthy food. Maybe salad of some kind of a risotto?” Me: Picking up a ham-cheese-pepperoni-ham-n-spam frozen pizza.

– Me in the evening: “Hmm, movie or gaming? I think I’ll go with the movie. Me: Starts reading a book.

What’s this thing, and does it have a name? Like, when you make an absolute decision of mundane nature, and immediately switch it.

Switchision. Yeah, that works.

SERENDIPITY SERENADE was the result of: “I don’t feel like playing acoustic guitar today.”

Earworm 2020: Oldies but Goldies edition.

Lots of worming’s been going on.

Early in the year it was “A Visit From The Dead” by King Diamond. (Love that song!)

In the summer it was “Zig Zag Wanderer” by Captain Beefheart. (Love that song!)

However, two pieces by the Move are the clear winners here, the songs being: “Hello Susie” and “Looking On”. Both of them are first songs of their respective albums, both of which came out in 1970!

Man, they were working back then!

And yes, love those songs!

Also SAHKO.

See you in 2121!
