Flying through the Valley Separating Day and Night

Dedicated to Gil Scott-Heron. R.I.P.

in the ruins of another mans life
Or flying through the valley
separating day and night
I am am Death,
Cried the Vulture,
for the people of the light...

so if you see the vulture coming
flying circles in your mind
remember their is no escaping
for he will follow close behind

only promise me a battle
a battle
for your soul and mine...

This is where the dragons went.

They lie...not dead, not asleep, but... dormant.

And although the space they occupy isn't like normal space, nevertheless they are packed in tightly.

They could put you in mind of a can of sardines, if you thought sardines were huge and scally.

And presumably, somewhere, there's a key...

It's Midsummer Night.No time for dreaming.

This is space. It's sometimes called the final frontier.(Except that of course you can't have a final frontier, because there'd be nothing for it to be a frontier to, but as frontier go, it's pretty penultimate...)

The Discworld is as unreal as it is possible to be while still being just real enuff to exist.

There's a saying that there is a saying that all roads lead to Ankh-Morpork. And it's wrong. All roads lead away from Ankh-Morpork, but sometimes people just walk along them the wrong way.

The universe contains any amount of horrible ways to be woken up, such as the noise of the mob breaking down the front door, the scream of fire engines, or the realization that today is the Monday which on Friday night was a comfortably way off.

Death is missing - presumed.....er....gone.Which leads to the kind of chaos you always get when an important public service is withdrawn. Meanwhile, on a little farm, far, far away, a tall dark stranger is turning out to be really good with the scythe. There's a harvest to be gathered in....

A working Class Hero is Something to Be!!!

In these past few weeks we have heard a lot about the "real economy" (the production and circulation of goods) and the – how should we call it? unreal? – economy which is the source of all evils, in that its agents had become "irresponsible", "irrational" and "predatory" – fuelling, first rapaciously, then in a panic, the now formless mass of stocks, securities and currencies. The return to the real cannot be a movement leading from bad "irrational" speculation back to healthy production. It is the return to the immediate and reflective life of all those who inhabit this world. It is from that vantage-point that one can observe capitalism without flinching, including the disaster movie that it is currently inflicting upon us. The real is not this movie, but its audience.
