Preferred song for my funeral

Although not original, but certainly, when I happen to hand over my spoon (hopefully not too soon 🙂 ):

Simon and Garfunkel – The Sound Of Silence

P.S. And while I am at it – definitely cremated.

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turn my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never shared
No one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

"Fools," said I, "you do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you"
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sound of silence

Snow white and seven dwarfs

Old, but one of the best clips I have seen. Poor dwarfs.

Digital photo journal

A nice project of some friends from Latvia. If I will have the wish to publish photos someday, will do it that way 🙂

I know, it uses flash which sucks etc. But it looks cool and is really user friendly.

Meteorite crate in Latvia – update – fake

Update – even if it still made out to be a big story, it was all a big joke most probably 🙂

Heard the big news yesterday evening, that a meteorite fell down nearby Mazsalaca, Latvia.

Some guys have managed to get the site on tape. Looks impressive.

The location, Mazsalaca, Latvia:

P.S. Maybe Latvia has got her own Superman now 😉

Google cache

Just lost a post (most probably) due to a move between servers for the database. Have to thank Google cache for backup.

Move to girts.niedra.org

So, I have moved to http://girts.niedra.org/ . With the moving, as usually, you have to change the wallpaper, move the stuff from the old place, etc.

I will write more than I did before.
