If any of my more ordinary 'followers' or 'friends' have the slightest inclination towards self-improvement they will get over to http://www.saatchi-gallery.co.uk/blogon/ the on-line Saatchi magazine, to see, on the front page - no clicking required- a video of dozens of famous portraits of beautiful women morphed into one 'shot'. And this over one of the Bach Suites for un-accompanied cello. (If the musical credit is wrong please don't tell me, my memory is in serious decline after 12 years in this god-forsaken land of the gods that is modern Greece.)
Seriously, please do this for me if you can, and don't dare trying to find my miserable page in this wonderful Gallery. After about 15 years to hear this music again, suddenly and without warning, was like meeting one of my daughters in person as she was at the age of 5, still bubbling over with affection and wonder.
Does anyone remember the old Lyle's Golden Syrup logo with the picture of the stinking corpse of a lion in which bees had made a nest, and were presumably making honey? Just occured to me thinking of a great gallery with the name Saatchi over it. Don't know why.
I needed a quite good night's sleep after blundering into a site by some people who believe that UFO sightings are proof, yes proof of vehicles of extra-terrestials - that they mean us no harm - that they are deliberately restraining from making actual contact with us until they have established the sanity or whatever (I forget) of earthlings. I hope they are good at holding their breath.
There is no earthling alive who more wants to believe that beings from another system have found this most beautiful of planets, and will one day make a landing, having learnt the language or actually conscripted a few lucky humans to introduce them in the flesh. Just one point. If, as some people want us to believe, ETs have been intelligent enough to subduct, re-educate, and return people without tangible, physical, evidence in a plastic shopping bag with the name of their planet on it, then they are (un)intelligent enough to land and mingle happily, especially with Americans...
Who, after all, are by a very long chalk the only ones on earth with minds open enough to embrace visitors from elsewhere, and with the facilities to deal with the PR. Another thing, ETs will not attempt to improve our morality, teach any new virtues or anything, not if they know what happened to Jesus. Right?
I am still being serious when I point out that enough is known about the universe, about the certainty of millions, yes millions of galaxies like our 'milky way' ('gala' = milk) where the non-occurence of hundreds of thousands of planetary systems just like ours is statistically almost impossible. Sorry about the sentance. There are just too many suns the same size as ours, and debris of all the materials it takes to create planets like ours floating around in space, for the earth to be unique. Sadly, light, and electro-magnetic stuff is all that can travel between galaxies. There are better sites than this to learn about astronomy, art or music, but one does what one must.
