“EU Sanctions Against Russian Elites Could Pose Existential Threat To Putin Regime”

I will only add supra that in light of a certain wider longterm view & taking into account the definitively LIMITED territorial loyalties of global financial elites, those mutually-rivalrous (NB) Russian oligarchs most likely to give la Putin a boot in the ass WILL be those with the widest & most far-reaching East Asian OR pan-Turkish business-connections & incentives.  [BW]

A Modest Confession

A Modest Confession

I truly, truly do NOT miss much of the 1960s North Atlantic world’s pop music of fifty (!) years ago, not really — but THESE young ‘uns make me wish I was young NOW & living in someplace like Switzerland or Slovenia!

You know what I mean, maybe? 

Christ, it’s just TRUE, listening to that bullshit rock & roll from when I was “young” on these dopey “oldies” stations is mostly an excuse TO THROW UP MY SHOESTRINGS & just plain does Continue Reading »

It is kind of the person to have asked & I am glad for the interest in this Death that is so suppressed everywhere among us, but all I can say, really, is that my effusions most usefully will be taken by anyone reading them as no more than so many ports de sortie into the Beyond.

It is all well & good to ‘want’ others to live…right up TO the point of coercion, even.

But in Love, my poesis altogether might be, well, just  a tad different say than ‘yours’, on learning that Death even now is walking about IN my house.

(As He indeed is in all of ours as we sit & read & fume & write…
