This blog is about computer software (and other things that come to mind to keep it interesting) --- my fascination with it as something with an almost "divine" potential, almost in the same way I see music. Also, it's a glimpse into something that is probably foreign to you and that you wouldn't know about otherwise. Somewhere in the dark corners where I hide. You see I am the last philosopher. And the only reason why I allow this at all is because I made a kind of mistake in my life and also realized kabbalah (which made clear to me that whatever I'm doing in this life, however solemn, is relatively unimportant), so interesting turn of events since I deviated from my path to the stars and ended up here. I'm shamelessly promoting myself until I'm capable of an old seriousness and can look back on this to see what it meant. (also to try blogging and experimenting with socializing a bit to see what I'd not have any other way or reason to find out about)

The Cream Of Clapton

Eric Clapton. ―Do you know about him?  Well just in case you don't there's this band that he and some guys formed a while ago (Derek and the Dominos) that wasn't really noticed at first but later became a big deal/legend, produced only one album, and it's listed on the greatest albums of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine. 

There's a lot of great songs on this album.  I like these (*) songs:
I Looked Away *
Bell Bottom Blues *
Keen On Growing *
Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out
I Am Yours *
Anyday *
Key To The Highway
Tell The Truth *
Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad? *
Have You Ever Loved A Woman
Little Wing *
It's Too Late *
Layla *
Thorn Tree In The Garden *

That epic end to the song Layla was written by a guy named Jim Gordon, who was really a popular session drummer In high demand in the 60s/70s.  He later killed his own mother in a psychotic episode, an apparently undiagnosed schizophrenic.  Because of recent changes in California law he wasn't allowed to plead insanity, but has so far spent most of his life sentence in a hospital (  He recalls it like if it was someone else…. (

You should also know about Cream ― the first supergroup according to Rolling Stone (Jann Wenner). 

Hear this:

"I feel free."
I feel free when I listen to this song.

And that song that sounds like In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida (the riff part) is excellent. 

Oh and this.
