Farewell and Tears

Like everybody reasonable else the Tiny Talk Charitable Trust bids farewell to Prince Rogers Nelson who died this morning at his estate.

Thanks to the art of recording many memories will be presevered pretty faithfully. Still, knowing that musicians' greatest sounds happen outside the public sphere, we feel urged to quote one Roy Beatty: All those moments will be lost in time like tears in rain. ..... Time to die.

Just be patient 4 3 minutes & 28 seconds and watch him playing 4 angel George and all the rest of them & us. You the man. God speed.

And now 4 the final march & dirge.

One last thing, Prince, do not forget to say hallo to Whitney. It's not right, but's ok.

Adam Yauch 1964-2012 R.I.P

Yesterday a great musician, rapper, activist and director, Adam "MCA" Yauch, founding member of the Beastie Boys and also of the Milarepa Foundation passed away in his native New York City after a years long battle with a rare form of cancer. A man under 50 years of age. All too young to go!

We have already (unaptly) tried to express our fandom in this little piece here of our topic "Great Jewish Songs and Lyrics".

Farewell, Jack Tramiel

Many Papers had it today. Jack Tramiel died at age 83. We always had him in our hero list for the fact that he was one of the few people in the industry who were really willing and able to make computing and personal devices for it dirt cheap and for all. Not only in North America, but also, and more importantly so for us, in good ole Europe.

2 Less Sung Big Heroes of the PC Revolution

And while Mr. Jobs was not one of them, the VC-20 and C-64s were the Apple IIs we could afford then here in babana land. Thank you Jack! And for the 64k of RAM 'n' sprites 'n' 2 busses too.

Finished Early

Not many people here in good ole Europe might have noticed, but today the last specimen of the most advanced and most senseless fighter plane that humanity - a small elite part of the US engineering elite part of humanity that is - has built so far, rolled of the assembly line. And most probably nobody will build the like of it again for the forseeable future. It is simply without sensible application.

Lockheed F-22 Raptor

Requiescat in pace, F-22 Raptor. You were and are one hell of a dangerous an' expensive toy 4 far 2 few.
