And my record of the year for 2020: Witch ‘n’ Monk by the duo of Heidi Heidelberg and Mauricio Velasierra. As Brian Morton wrote: “Hard to imagine that voice, guitar and flute could groove so hard and deliver so much.”

On this collection of three long-form ambient music tracks for radio transmission environment, SJF creates tonal hues likening him to producers on the Subvert Central forum such as Formication ("Agnosia" EP, but much lighter) and ennui (but much less spacious).
With a fractal portent that yearns for patient listens, Simon James French has produced another installment of fine musical pieces that are as harmonious as they are beguiling. See the link for more information.

And The Time is wasted?
not copied and pasted
rather hastened and slim-waisted
falling like an evergreen curve
around the hips of a parabola
time may make us loners
but too much pride is for stoners
getting stoned to death
and stoned out of their heads
until ash comes out of their ears
and all they breathe is fears
not copied and pasted
rather gripped like life was chastised
tormented, trailed like an iron shackle
attached to the wrecking ball of days gone by.

A healthy, tasty meal that doesn't cost the Earth, provides nutrition and is easy to source.
Lay out the fish on the plate once cooked or ready to eat, crumble the Stilton alongside, spoon over the Jus and halve the
tomato and lay the pieces on a shape on the plate.
The flavour you will get from this is strong flowers, vegetables and quality meat, with the sauces giving necessary garnish.
