First snow arrived in my neck of the woods this week, so here we go again. It will be a while until it stays but winter is definitely on the way. Got my operation done a couple of days ago. Took two and a half hours (that I thankfully slept through) but I am back home and although I am a bit tired I feel good about the fact that it is done. I pretty much lost this summer and the to do list is frightening. Still, I can finally take care of things proper. In a sense, I begin a new season myself as well.

The blog is still good fun to have a go at every now and again and it is nice to see good traffic for old posts. This week I noted a big interest in a particular story, as the stats for the October 19 2018 post “Babymetal and the Led Zeppelin connection” went through the roof. Not sure if it was fans of Babymetal or Zeppelin, but somebody clearly linked to the blog.

There was also interest from a journalist in the States to do something with the August 20 2012 post on Ronnie James Dio (the big interview, I think the UFO part in particular). So we will see what happens there. I gave her my blessings, no reason not to.

Got Metal Hammer #327 in the mail (first of two versions, the other is on the way) and I have to say that the Babymetal interview by Eleanor Goodman AND the photography by Steve Brown for said story was top notch. Superb stuff. In a sense, they too (Babymetal) have entered a new season, a new chapter. Glad to follow them on this journey from afar, they bring so much joy. And we can all appreciate a bit of that in our lives.

And for the very same reason I just added a bunch of Fred Basset books (2012-2020 stuff from the Daily Mail in the UK) to the old collection, published by Summersdale Publishers Ltd. This is a rather wonderful cartoon and I will enjoy these books very much in the coming weeks.

Thank you for your continued interest in this little corner of our strange universe.
