“Virtual Embrace” (from my album, “The Key”)

Posted on Updated on

 

The relationship one has with one’s songs is always interesting, as each contains a little piece of one’s heart. But there are some which have a special place in there. Out of the 300 or so songs which I’ve written over the years, “Virtual Embrace”, is still in my top five personal favourites. I was so happy in the studio when it got the treatment it needed from producer, Otto Wellton (who also played the very tasteful piano part), and the arrangement for the Stockholm Concert Orchestra (oh, those sweet, sweet strings!) by their director, Johan Ahlin, and that “submarine” bass from Samuel Laxberg. The song recounts an occasion when I met an old friend after many years and we each pretended that we were happy when we weren’t. “How are you?” Pause. “Fine”. Familiar scene. But between us there was a virtual embrace which awaited fulfilment. A snapshot of truth. Please click on the link above to listen. Here are the lyrics:

She looked me in the eye and said “My dreams are satisfied”
but something else was screaming from inside.
The smile upon her face didn’t match her mournful gaze —
I saw through her disguise Read the rest of this entry »

LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #34: “My Rocketship, ‘Apocalypse’”

Posted on Updated on

LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #34: “My Rocketship, ‘Apocalypse’”. Here’s another raw video of a song I just wrote. It’s just a very personal (if somewhat surrealistic) take on some old situations and their consequences in my life, and my being freed from them. It contains 4 verses, 4 refrains and a vocal bridge. (There will also be an article related to this on my new website specially designed for articles later this month, entitled “Truth Attracts Lies & We All Know Why!”). I hope that it speaks [sings] to you. Living-Room Videos are made of songs I just wrote. They are not professional grade but raw and acoustic, filmed on a webcam in my living-room. If this was in a live concert, there would be a full band, synthesizer and orchestral instruments. Here are the lyrics: Read the rest of this entry »

Introduction: The Myth of a Matriarchy

Any analysis of the workings of satanic activity in society would be incomplete if it did not investigate the influences of modern feminism, especially in relation to its claims about the existence of a so-called “patriarchy” and the parallel favourable referencing of an alleged benign matriarchy in ancient societies which many feminists wish to see reinstated today and which they allege will completely change the world.

In my book, “Narrow Gate ~ Pathway Strait”,  I referred a number of times to the unique vulnerability of women in relation to spiritual influences and their susceptibility to wacky spiritual notions and dark deceptions swathed in false light which therefore make them sound benevolent to the naïve or over-zealous. I have seen this happen many times and received many anecdotes about it. No doubt a number will accuse me of rampant “sexism” here. Such an accusation is merely a convenient way of bypassing reality by hiding behind a made-up label concocted in support of an ideology. Despite my great love for women (especially those who are truly liberated), I have to be honest about what I have observed to be true. So, in this paper, let us crack wide open the misplaced notion of an oppressive “patriarchy” and the myth of a magnanimous “matriarchy”. Read the rest of this entry »

💥70 is the New 50!💥 (and other news…)

Posted on Updated on

70 Photoshoot 1a

💥 70 – I S – T H E – N E W – 50! 💥 (and other news too, for which see below) At each measured age, we think that we’ve reached a pinnacle and are at the top of our game; but it’s nothing compared to the future pinnacles which we’ll achieve later down the line. Each imagined “pinnacle” is just a stepping-stone to the next. I feel as if I’ve got more energy, verve, zest or vim today at seventy years old than I had twenty years ago, when I was a mere fledgling and comparative ignoramus in relation to who I am now (and in each single moment I am a total ignoramus compared to the next! 🙂 ). I certainly have more boldness today than ever before and am continually filled with a “nothing-left-to-lose” mindset. For some years previous to this one —having allowed myself to be way too daunted by adverse circumstances — I’d felt as if I was “underground” or Read the rest of this entry »

The Self-Awareness Song (from my album, “The Key”)

Posted on Updated on


Here is a sample song from my most recent album, “The Key”. You can click on the “Play” button above to hear it. The lyrics are, I believe, most apposite for the world as it is today. So many of us speak and act without any self-awareness whatsoever. Neither do we consider what might be the consequences. This song is a wake-up call from our sleepwalking. It is in a classic early music style, with lute, drums and various classical instruments from the Stockholm Concert Orchestra, playing without vibrato to add to the authentic early music effect. Here are the lyrics: Read the rest of this entry »

“Veni, Creator Spiritus!” from Mahler’s 8th Symphony. A Powerful Invocation…

Posted on Updated on

WHEN MUSIC AND A PRAYER TO THE CREATOR OF THE COSMOS COME TOGETHER, anything can happen! Just try this 9th century Latin prayer of invocation to the Holy Spirit, “Veni, Creator Spiritus!” (Come, Creator Spirit of God!), set to music as the first part of Gustav Mahler’s 8th Symphony. The whole symphony (which plays in the concert hall for between 80 and 90 minutes!) was written in less than two months between June and August 1906. This link is just for the first part of the symphony, which lasts for 25 minutes. Mahler wrote about it: “I saw the whole piece immediately before my eyes, and Read the rest of this entry »

BREXIT: A Théâtre de l’Absurde Contrivance

I WAS GOING TO WRITE ANOTHER ARTICLE about the théâtre de l’absurde contrivance known by its portmanteau word, “Brexit”. But, being in a playful 🤪 geeky 🤓 frame of mind today, I created an image instead. Feel free to share…
