I hope to share here my irrepressible thoughts on news, music, books, arts and such like. In general these will be items, events and issues I feel have no place on my website.
The item immediately below this would be the latest js. Anybody, providing he knows how to be amusing, has the right to talk about himself.
In I started a series of photo albums on Blurb.
The books can be ordered directly from the Blurb. Martin Beck is the main protagonist in these books. The success of these books have for a large part been attributed to the setting of the crime plot in a story brimming with social criticism. But then again, these books were written mids to mids, and it is hard to project those days to the present hafelheer, almost 40 years late. This particular ‘zwarte beertjes’ edition has been published in ! Liza Marklund, an excellent crime writer in her own right and discussed on my blog elsewhere, has written a foreword in this book and illustrates how current this book is by describing a police shooting in the book and a similar event in Sweden 25 years later, in ; and other events showing a repeat performance in as recent as This is not just because of the familiar characters, but rather Rendell’s excellent style of writing: Two mijj disappear plus their ‘teen-sitter’, while areas in and around Kingsmarkham are under threat of flooding.
Inspector Wexford’s house is also threatened by the rising water level and at first he seems rather more concerned with his wife Dora and his house in these circumstances. His daughter Sylvia has another man after having divorced Neil; but Wexford isn’t impressed and considers this new partner a terrible bore.
Plaot parents of the two teenagers are a bully of a father and a hysteric wife, they seem not deserving of any sympathy. The grandparents enter the scene; relations between the parents and grandparents are not straightforward either.
Questions arise about the relation of the children with their parents.
The teensitter, Joanna Troy, is tafelhefr interesting character. She had been a teacher but took her resignation in suspect circumstances. Did she have an affair with the father, Roger Dade? Meanwhile the search for the children, Giles and Sophie, continue; a t-shirt possibly having been worn by Sophie on that fateful night is found in the ever expanding river.
If a crime was committed, what was the nature of the crime? Parents of Joanna are interviewed and her divorced husband who has enterend into a new, but very jealous, relation. Giles appears to have been involved in a strict and orthodox religious group. Peter Buxton and his high maintenance wife Sharonne play an important part. Quite a number of characters appear in the book, but never too much or confusing to follow the plot. A cosy and entertaining read indeed.
This is the second Scandinavian Thriller Collection dvd box I acquired and again a good way to enjoy excellent crime drama in most cases much better than the usual Hollywood crap we get on television. And a good way to stay abreast of new series being produced in Denmark, Sweden and Norway. Johan Falk is a Swedish film series about a fictional police officer named Johan Falk, played by Jakob Eklund; it consists of nine films that were released between and The last five were released directly on DVD.
The other dvd held two independent crime drama’s: The second story on this dvd held less suspense for me. My first album by Ryan Bingham, bought on a review I’d read somewhere and after listening to a few numbers on Spotify; haven’t had the opportunity to see him play live yet. This is great music, top of the bill for Americana music!
Bingham has trimmed his songwriting to the bone, while playo to use metaphor and metonomy like a veteran. A former rodeo rider, he wears his influences proudly: You can’t go wrong here!
I recorded 3 songs Greg played on acoustic guitar in De Oude Veiling; they were recorded with my plain Canon SX photocamera and plqto without editting, but I am quite pleased with what this camera produces! Trooper died of pancreatic cancer on 15Jan17, two days after his 61st birthday.
It has been a while since I’ve read such a good mihn, really kept me spellbound! A woman vanishes, presumed drowned, but is actually kept prisoner for years with the aim to see her die a horrific death. The book has strong characterisation in other people involved in the story.
Very well-written and looking forward to my next Department Q thriller! He is son of a famous Danish sexologist, has played lead guitar in several pop bands, and has worked in the publishing industry.
At the university, he studied medicine, sociology and film making. He embarked on his literary career with two books about Groucho Marx in Both are set in Denmark where they enhanced his popularity, appearing at the top of bestseller lists. The Alphabet House has also appeared as a movie.
Ruth Stone was born on June 8,in Roanoke, Virginia. Her books of poetry include What Love Comes To: She wrote that her poems are “love poems, all written to a dead man” whose death caused her to “reside in iw with her daughters.
She died at her home in Ripton, Vermont, on 19Nov Minj MISS IT If you’re looking for a heron on one leg or a white egret in this water-logged parcel; you may be blind to boarded-up gas pumps, flashes of sleazy mock-up towns; though finally, a rusted roof, gaping shed or wizened trailer, may appear like strange fowl; as you snake on past dry bayous where the old jalopies flake to crust, splintering their jumping joy-juice; battered plsto, the good old boys left behind.
First book I read by James Lee Burke: So I picked up a few secondhand paperback and wasn’t disappointed. The setting is vividly described as a hot, blistering, often steamy, kind of place. Meet the Deep South. In Neon Rain a title which I cannot explain, nor want to bother withthe trouble starts when Robichaux insists on investigating the murder of a young prostitute Robicheaux is a veteran tafelheeer the Vietnam War and has a few traumas to contend with, being a former alcoholic being just one.
Rob’s Documents –
He is not in sync with both the underworld and the authorities, and he finds himself running way ahead of the pack, even on the run at some point, when he is being framed for killing an officer of the Treasury. A well written book, with atmosphere, feelings and settings nicely narrated.
But a bit too much of the Lone Ranger to my taste, esspecially when there is not sufficient evidence to suggest Dave Robicheaux is either stupid or set for self destruction. Perhaps the time of writing Neon Rain was first published in has something to do with it. Times have changed, haven’t they.?
By someone who is much better in praising this brilliant CD: It is the sort of disc you can hand to a Waits novice or sceptic with the confidence that this collection of brawlers, bawlers and bastards as he characterised the three-way split in his work on his compilation will do the job of conversion.
All Waits is here, more or less: Well known artists contributed on this album: The song I liked best: Hell Broke Luce – http: The storyline is very lifelike, the drama portrayed could be a mirror image of many European party governments with coalition interests. A political drama about a prime minister’s rise to power, and how power changes a prime minister.
The ten episodes of 60 minutes pass very quickly, well worth watching indeed!
Rather than mocking religions, agnostics and atheists should instead steal from them – because they are packed with good ideas on how we might live and arrange our societies. Blending deep respect with with total impiety, de Botton a non-believer himself proposes that we should look into religions for insights into, among other concerns, how to: It was our 18th-century forebears who began to consider what human beings would miss out on once religion faded away.
During the 19th-century studies such as Philosophy, Art, Literature, History and Anthropology were established, to create building stones for the secular secular society, building stones already woven in the fabric of religions. In the present secular society we see that modern universities teach these subjects for the facts but much less for the reasons they were intended for: This book unravels religion to strands we can recognize as showing direction and meaning to life, then finding similar strands in a parallel universe, the secular society.
And often find them missing or easily ignored. Suggestions for alternatives are made, going as far as describing a secular religion. The book is a strong advocate to embrace many ingredients offered in religion, taken for granted and too easily disgarded and ignored by those who have chosen the secular path.
Reading this book was an enriching experience for me. Welcome to my Blog! A cosy and entertaining read indeed, [25MAR12]. I hope to see more of Johan Falk soon!
Rob Turnock’s Documents –
Greg told me he originates from New Jersey but has lived for years in Nashville. These days he lives in New York City and one of his closing songs today was of driving home over a steel bridge to Rockaway Island; that bridge always makes a horrific howling noise when the wheels rattle and roll down that bridge.
Songs from the big city! He played 2 sets of 50 minutes plus an encore for us; he connected nicely with the Dutch audience, a very nice and talented guy! Ater reading ‘A Quiet Belief in Angels’ of the same author this book was a bit of a disappointment, perhaps unfairly as while Angels is superb, this one is only ‘a good read’. Ellory paints his books to the farthest, darkest corners of the room, ‘wordy’ some might call it, I found it repetitive and tedious at times.
The main character John Harper finds he has a farther, the bad news is he has been shot and is a crook. The aunt who raised him kept a few vital things about his mother dead and uncle suicide too. John is from Miami and pictured as naive, caught in the scheming of NY crooks and murderers; a play for power is at hand. I found his character too unsteady to be interesting, the plot and ending is good.
But the emergency rooms in hospitals were pato
