Now can some please explain why my old CD version of Oxygene 8 (.wma, right click "save as"), and that I have had for years, is completely different from that at amazon.com or any of the ones on YouTube ? I myself haven't the foggiest. (And no, there is no my mistaking the Oxygene 8 label on my CD and its track on this end.)
Real organized crime is not Mugsy, Lefty and Don Corleone; rather it is this person or persons in a position of enormous wealth and power; who has last or ultimate say over what is or isn't approved of in business or society, and yet who lives (more or less) anonymously and answers to no one else but a ghost he confides in.
It has been a point of contention among admirers and devotees of the beautiful whether it is more desirable for flowers and gardens to suit geometry and human ideals of beauty, or else to encourage a more free appearance, that is one we think of as being more natural or semi-natural as opposed to artificial. Yet by far the more important thing to bear in mind is that such considerations and distinctions as to what is more beautiful are utterly trivial or irrelevant so long as extreme injustice, literal war, and gross social inequality continue to exist or transpire in our midst.
He may be poor materially but at least he knows the value of things (including in this people and animals.)

I don't recall being a Blondie fan myself, but they actually had more good songs then some of us remember. And despite what might seem to have been the band's dumb blonde image, Debby Harry, aside from having a solid and creative singing voice, is if you listen to her in interviews (also on YouTube) a quite intelligent and inspired, if not very formally educated, person.

A world famous scientist, artist, statesman, author, or other benefactor to mankind should be seen as an artisan, say as a baker who bakes fine bread, a tailor who makes fine clothes, or a carpenter who adroitly works and fashions wood. True, an eminent scientist, artist, statesman, or author's contribution might, in a given instance, be more profound than the work of an more ordinary artisan, say a baker, tailor, or carpenter, but what profundity is or might be in his (or her) work comes from God, and he, at bottom, is really no more gifted or important, or no less gifted or less important, than a highly skilled artisan.
Long ago and far away...What memories such places evoke to someone visiting them today, I myself could only guess; though I would think that for an informed and imaginative person the experience must be haunting but also intriguing to the soul.

Just to illustrate my earlier point about how rotten these people are, they wouldn't even let me have the Roger Miller deal the latter gets as shown in this video...
