  1. Under The Covers

    by , 08-08-2016 at 04:28 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    There I was in Starbucks about six o’clock this morning when I noticed that they were playing more covers, bad covers, mostly of mediocre songs. I asked a barista about it and was simply told that they had to play Starbucks playlists. The employees used to play some of their own CD’s, but that was banned. Apparently there is a problem with royalties. If Starbucks is trying to minimize royalties, then their playlists are only slightly successful, because they still have to pay the songwriter’s ...

    Peace be on all.

    According to my understanding, Muslim countries and their cherished clergies neither understand true Islamic teaching nor do they want. They deny Spiritual Reformer Imam sent by Allah the Exalted ...

  3. It's Too Noisy

    by , 08-02-2016 at 03:53 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    I am becoming progressively less willing to accept noise, and the level of noise around me has been increasing for decades. To a large degree, the noise snuck up; it kept increasing a little bit at a time, and new things, devices, machines, etc. that made more noise were being devised all the time. Often they were more effective than earlier versions, so the noise was acceptable, but it has gotten so bad that I have to yell at the servers in Starbucks, because the machinery behind the counter makes ...

    So. Just as Iíve come in, put my keys down and taken my hood off thereís a knock at the door. What? Is it those guys? I should really let them have it if it is but Iíll be too shy and anxious to actually do so. Or is it the neighbour? Is this going to be a thing?
    No. It was Napoleon. He had to pee before getting to business.
    Heís just come straight from a job, incidentally doing some work on a womanís roof, which is why he didnít ...

    So about this point is where I arrived on the scene. Heís asked for Napoleonís number so that he can try to talk to him about this important work that needs to be done, since mum hasnít gotten through. He doesnít know that Napoleon is a builder or who he is in relation to us, but husband or some trusted/authoritative kind of figure would be the obvious guess. So Iím there just as she gives him Napoleonís phone number and Iím thinking what ...
