Anywhere you go

I had played on another branch of Niklas’ and Oliv’s track already, so I took my bass from there to see if it would also fit on Anne’s wonderful song… here you go…

As always, thanks to my friends for all the fun, and for their wonderful music. And thanks to you for listening.

Love forever feat. Mark Z.

I added fishi’s sweet sax and also my upright to a wonderful Canadian/German/Welsh and with the sax also American love song:

As always, merci, danke and thanks to my friends from Wikiloops, and thanks to you for listening.

Happy tenth anniversary Wikiloops :)

Thanks for everything, and my best wishes for the next ten years…

Danke Richard! And thanks et merci to all the moderators as well 🙂 And to those who support and contribute daily… 🙂

Rest in peace, Tuna

Oh man – it’s so hard to write this…

On Saturday, March 13th, 2021 at 10:30am, our little furry friend of 11 years passed away.

Tuna (which was the name Zuleikha gave her) chose us as her family, not vice versa. She must have “belonged” to someone else before since she had a flea collar when in July of 2010 I took the first photo of her sitting on our fence like this:

About three months later she came in, ate, slept, and stayed pretty much forever. Until that Saturday 2 weeks ago.

I have countless photos and also some videos of her, some of which are in an album on Flickr, so go there if you want to see them. For here, and for now, I’ll only show you our “Easter Greeting” photo from last year:

And the one which is still my background wallpaper on this Debian Linux machine on which I’m currently typing this, and also the company’s work notebook which runs Red Hat Linux. It’s Tuna on a hot day on our veranda, taken with my 25mm lens wide open:

We buried her last Wednesday at an animal cemetery in Frankfurt Rödelheim, which is the closest to us with a distance of about 20km.

I’ll add a photo of the grave when it has a surrounding like the others.

Don’t know what else to say except that I’m deeply grateful for the 11 wonderful years that she’s spent with us. Thank you my little friend, and rest in peace…

Farewell

What a nice track from Martin, couldn’t resist to play around with it a bit…

As always, thanks for listening.

Last and first portraits, and a radio show

Three “killer covers” videos

Today I linked three videos into the “killer covers” thread in Wikiloops. Just in case you don’t want to see them there, here they are as well:

She Gives You Chills with her cover of I Will, also by Devin Angelet

and – last not least –

CLASSIC POP COVER SONGS- “Walk On By” (Alan Curtis Cover), by Alan Curtis Music featuring Shi

Enjoy. And thanks for watching and listening.
