Life, photos but not the universe

For Christopher

The æther.  As you can see, it cannot be contained within the bounds of an internet browser.

An anagram of ætheric is cheatier.  Something to which not even Delia would stoop?

And “Aether” is a track from the 1998 album Lead and Aether by Finnish funeral doom metal band, Skepticism, among other things.  Sounds like lots of fun.

Oh well then.  Being slightly curious about “Finnish funeral doom metal” I found a You Tube recording of  Aether.  I didn’t listen to very much of it as it wasn’t fun though there was certainly lots.  And the first comment says it all but much quicker.  I didn’t look further but perhaps the other track was called “Lead”.

However, if you like doom-laden Finnish photography, there was some on the video for another of their tracks.  Nice with the sound off.

You can probably tell that I ought to be doing something else this evening.  F’ristance worrying about whether the bank really rang Barney when I was away baby minding or if we have now been cloned, tidying up after two days’ absence, deciding what to eat tomorrow and remembering what tasks I had decided to leave until I came back.

Ah!  And I didn’t realise that parts of the sidebar exist in the æther until I clicked on publish.  Oh well : )

(And then I had to shrink it a bit since I couldn’t see any of you any more)

  2. I don’t know about aether but I always had a soft spot for Phlogiston and wonder if it may make a comeback in the future.

  3. I did say nice with the sound off Mel : ) Well it’s always good to be able to say you’ve listened to something before you dismiss it.

    For a moment I thought you were talking about another band Rog. It would probably be livelier than funeral doom metal.

  4. Well, I listened, my son suggested I had time to make a cup of tea before it went anywhere (i.e. away) and he was quite right. I see they quote the Dies Irae plainchant. It was very brave of you even to mention it.

    (Sorry I didn’t reply immediately. I’ve been in Vienna.)

  5. Oh dear, I’m sorry Christopher – I didn’t mean the whole post was for you – I certainly didn’t mean you had to listen to any of the, um, sound.
    Oh well at least you had a cup of tea.
