Hey YA! You will probably notice that things aren't working too well between diaspora and Redmatrix/Hubzilla since after the last diaspora update. We're waiting for diaspora devs to update again with the regression fix. If you add any new diaspora connections right now, you will have to remove them and add them again later, whenever diaspora releases a new version and all the pods get updated.

Hello dear Seth! Oh, thank you. I did not know that there are heavy fed probs now after the last update; actually, Giac o velho suggested that I should connect to the Anima Jazz channel and post in that forum directly from Diaspora (haven't tried it yet but, looks like that he did it yesterday as far as I saw). ok, so now I will remove the D* connections as you suggest and wait....

I hope that everything goes smoothly and well with you... "miss my" libertypod.org but here in Austria it takes ages to load...

and so I wish you some wonderful autumn and more ♥

It is a true Full Snow Moon – February
Since the heaviest snow usually falls during this month, native tribes of the north and east most often called February’s full Moon the Full Snow Moon. Some tribes also referred to this Moon as the Full Hunger Moon, since harsh weather conditions in their areas made hunting very difficult. #snow #moon #February

How to honor Aaron Swartz’s life
By Ben Wikler

Today is two years and a day after the suicide of Aaron Swartz.

Aaron was one of my closest friends. That night was the worst of my life.

In the weeks and months that followed, many of his friends and family — and many people that never knew him personally — asked themselves and each other the same question: what’s the best way to honor Aaron’s death?

Was it to reform the archaic laws (including the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, passed in the 80s during the hysteria around the fictional film War Games) that had been used to prosecute him? Was it to make academic research available freely to the public? Was it reforming the criminal justice system as a whole, and academia, and the political system?

Yes, yes, and yes — all of the above. But also something more than that — something personal: what I and others concluded was that the best way we could honor Aaron’s life and death was in the way we lived our own lives.

In short, by living to make the biggest difference we could. By staying focused on the big questions — and never letting ourselves grow satisfied that we had all the right answers or were doing enough.

Aaron left a guide for how to do this, both in his own writing and in how he led his life.

First: Stay curious. Read all the time. You’ll never know what’s out there, and what you can do to change it, if you’re not looking out at the world beyond. Aaron read more than anyone I know, often several books a week (his annual book summaries are amazing), but any of us can embrace our curiosity and find ways to seek new information and ideas.

Second: Don’t accept things as they are, or assume they’re that way for a good reason. Aaron questioned everything. Sometimes it got him into trouble. But the beauty of skepticism is that sometimes you see things everyone else is furiously ignoring. It was a foregone conclusion that SOPA, or something like it, would become law. But Aaron saw foregone conclusions not as a deterrent, but as a personal challenge. And we’re all better for it.

Third: Become good at something. And then use it to make a difference. Aaron was a genius computer programmer. He said it was like having magic powers: he could think of something and then make it real. He could have used that power to become obscenely wealthy. Instead, he used his magic to fight for justice. Most of us will never be as good at anything as he was at coding. But if you’re serious about making change, it helps to develop some skills — and then to apply them to problems that really matter.

Fourth: Ask yourself what you could do to make the biggest difference in the world. And then challenge your answers. A raft of psychological research tells us that humans generally do things first, and then come up with reasons for them afterwards. Aaron struggled brilliantly against this. He saw it as imperative that we actually ask the hard questions, and not accept easy answers. The job you’re in: is it really the most important thing you could be doing with your life? The new car: is it more important to you than the difference you could make if you donated the money? These questions can make us uncomfortable. But that’s a good kind of discomfort. It’s something we could all use a lot more of. Even if it doesn’t make life easy, it makes it meaningful.

And lastly: Stay alive. Aaron took life seriously. He worked hard to be good at it. (Read his series “Raw Nerve” for some brilliant insights on that front.) But then he ended his own. From the perspective of impact, of creating positive change in the world, this was the biggest mistake he could have made.

Don’t be surprised if at some point in your life, maybe at many points, you find yourself submerged in a darkness that seems infinite and eternal. It might seem to you like it’s always been that way, it will always be that way, and there’s only one way out.

You’re wrong. It will get better. But it will only get better if you find some way to survive.

Aaron constantly asked himself how he could do more to change the world, but on one terrible day, he ended his ability to contribute forever. Don’t do that.

We need you. We need all of us. There’s a lot of work to be done.

BULGARIA 1988 very rare video. full concert.
Paco deLucia & Group in concert, in Bulgaria circa 1988. This is a very interesting performance. It's good, but what's most interesting is the body language he exhibits towards the sound engineers. There's a recurrent issue with feedback, on and off, throughout the performance, to which Paco looks towards the sides of the stage like he wants to bludgeon them to death with his guitar.

Celebrating the original hobo, bluesman David "Honeyboy" Edwards, whose death in 2011, severed a vital link to the music, memories and imagination that infuses all blues music.

American based music journalist and broadcaster Gianluca Tramontana conjures the "Wild and tangled forests, the broad, unhasting river flows, somewhere 'twixt Memphis and Tupelo", to the heart and home of Honeyboy.

Honeyboy Edwards was among the first generation of pre-war Mississippi blues musicians that rambled the countryside playing juke joints, picnics, house parties: anywhere music was needed.

He knew the first blues musicians to be recorded, such as Charlie Patton, and travelled with the founding fathers of blues music including Robert Johnson.

Honeyboy was one of hundreds of thousands teenagers hopping freight trains during the Great Depression. He travelled in search of work - to play music, but his weakness for gambling, wine and women often got him into trouble.

After the war he settled in Chicago where his reputation as the greatest country blues musician took hold.

Honeyboy's death in 2011 marked the end of an era, that lives in the hearts of music lovers around the world. His life story is mostly untold, but it's a crucial slice of American history that has been in the shadows.

Tramontana hobos across the country - taking in Chicago, New York, Mississippi and the National Hobo Convention in Iowa - to understand the world and ways of a different type of American hero.

I suspect sunrises in most open spaces can be magical. I lurrrrrrrvz Sunrise. In fact I love it so much I usually wake up when it is still dark, before the birds, though, not the rooster (which crows for who knows what reason at any time of day or night). I love watching the light change and then listening for which of the birds wakes up first.

1974 Atmospherics a Notre Dame

#^Nico & Tangerine Dream - 1974 Atmospherics a Notre Dame
by Eddie Essence on YouTube

Atmospherics a Notre-Dame, Reims France
December 13, 1974

This is obviously a split live album by Tangerine Dream and Nico. There never was a collaboration. Nico came into force on 12.13.1974 on unaccompanied as a preliminary of Tangerine Dream Reims, nothing more.

If there have been such a concert in France, I do not know. In any case, I know the recording of a concert by TD at the Royal Albert Hall in London from '75, where it in the voice could very well be Nico who recites a poem, and indeed in "Semblance at the Mysterious beach of Nightmares "(Phaedra).

This FM broadcast of Nico at Reims mostly focuses on Nico and her harmonium, probably with the exception of the final track, Atmospherics, which features Tangerine Dream and their space rock. Of the six tracks, three are from Nico's 1970 Desertshore album, while two come from 1974's The End. Nico is gracious but it is that melancholic, Eastern European touch (brought to full bloom by Arvo Part) that comes through, especially on her cover of The End. Years later, under the sponsorship of filmmaker David Lynch, Jocelyn Montgomery would try and rethread the path taken earlier by Nico. But within the confines of the Reims cathedral, the sincerity in Nico's delivery cannot be fudged or mistaken for anything else.

Nico's voice echoes in the cathedral of ice in a (religious) surrounded by silence, wrapped in depths as deep as synthesizers and organ. To freeze the veins..

Review Beehive Candy 2010:

This is Nico & Tangerine Dream recorded live at the Cathedrale Notre-Dame, Reims, France, way back on the 13th December 1974.

This recording was sourced from the a broadcast of the event on France Inter Radio and has been widely circulated as a silver CD boot. The majority of this recording is of Nico performing solo with a Harmonium (she was the supporting artist) however over time Tangerine Dream seem to have been 'upped' considerably in the credits. The venues audio characteristics along with Nico's haunting style have a significant effect on this recording that as a result produced music of a timeless and fascinating nature.

About.com included this event in a list of 10 Infamous Concerts and had the following to say: 'Tangerine Dream —those krautrock innovators turned new-age synth wallpaperists - picked an amazing venue for a show in December, 1974: Notre-Dame de Reims Cathedral; which had historically hosted the coronations of French Kings. Unfortunately, the promoter of the gig got a little swept up in the grandeur, overselling the show so blatantly that the crowd, when eventually crammed in, couldn't move; leading to audience members urinating where they stood. The Catholic Church was apoplectic, and banned concert events in Cathedrals for eternity. The show's legacy grows over the years thanks to a bootleg of opener Nico, playing her haunted, pump-organ dirges in a house whose natural reverb makes them sound like the ghostliest hymns'.
