tefonik - The 46664 Break (dedicated to Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela)
“I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic & free society in which all persons will live together in harmony & with equal opportunities. It is an ideal for which I hope to live for and to see realised. But, My Lord, if it needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.” - Nelson Mandela, June 12, 1964, South Africa, upon being sentenced to life in prison.
Giorgio Moroder at 73 decides to have some fun and tour with a DJ set of house remixes of his legendary disco and 80’s movie soundtrack hits:
“My name is Hansgeorg … I took the name Giovanni Giorgio… This is my music.” I can’t translate the rest since I don’t speak German Vocoder, but perhaps someone can help out.
We must beware of the Past, mustn’t we? I mean that any fixing of the mind on old evils beyond what is absolutely necessary for repenting our own sins and forgiving those of others is certainly useless and usually bad for us. Notice in Dante that the lost souls are entirely concerned with their past. Not so the saved. This is one of the dangers of being, like you and me, old. There’s so much past, now, isn’t there? And so little else. But we must try very hard not to keep on endlessly chewing the cud. We must look forward more eagerly to sloughing that old skin off forever—metaphors getting a bit mixed here, but you know what I mean.
