笑 忘 書 Bookʂ oƒ laughing and forgetting _ Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat: 銅 面 The copper top ƒrom Everything'ʂ getting older 萬 物 逐 漸 老 去, 2OII

Aidan John Moffat ( 10 Apr. 1973- Falkirk, Scotland)

The bar's busier than it should be on a weekday afternoon as the door swings shut behind me, but I'm the only one wearing a suit. No-one seems to notice my entrance though, I suppose they must be used to mourners in the nearest pub to the crematorium. I don't think I could've coped with the wake, I had to make ...a quick exit to be alone with my memories, I was sick of hearing everyone else's. I buy a pint and sit down.

"See, the trouble with you is that you're top heavy", said the tailor as he measured me up. They don't get asked much for three-piece suits these days, so my choice was limited. I went for all-purpose black, or 'charcoal grey' as he called it. Looks black to me. This is the second time I've worn it, the first was a wedding and there's a christening next week so I might as well get my money's worth. Birth, love and death: the only reasons to get dressed up. I loosen my tie.

Halfway through my pint and a text message from John says he's waiting outside, sooner than I'd expected. I down what's left and step out into the bright afternoon and get in the car. I look up and see the pub's once brilliant copper roof has oxidized over the years and it's now a dull, pastel green. Everything's getting older.

.. It’s “ the funeral you’ve worked your whole life for.”

◎ 愛無處路上的轉圜 Corners on the Road of Love Leads Nowhere‧給可人兒的死亡出租車. The Postal Service 郵政. The Shins 小腿骨. Broken Bells 碎鈴. Club Smith 史密斯俱樂部. Crocus 番紅花

角的告示 說今晚 The SmithsFelt 在酒吧開唱
看到當下 心裡上上下下 其實要惦估好幾遍
倒是下班路上 轉角的酒吧說:
Death Cab For CutieThe Shins 有演唱會
就不用顧忌那麼多了。 走進去不必照會心情
他們玩的是音樂 不必看得太認真; 唱歌是這朋友的工作 有幾支代表作 有興趣聽聽; 不想刻意聽 他也不欲藉音樂勉強灌輸什麼 但走近他 當也可以說聲嗨 把音樂當成用聊的

不過時間在今天下班後 這些都是不可能..
說愁的詩人 時間稱了他 早乘鶴做古
原本近距離的朋友隨時間給了知名度紅了 進場排隊還要預約
若下班路上 還能順性晃進酒吧聽到歌
那名字寫上的是 Club SmithCrocus
新名字 有夠吵 但很好
沒有朋友 離舞台最遠的角落
愛的路上他的湮隱 暫時待過片刻 那沒人認得的停留

肩 並 肩 ‧Shoulder To Shoulder ɓy ▅ 實 驗 部 門 Test Dept. with South Wales Striking Miners Choir ▅ 南威爾斯罷業礦工合音團 ‧I985

.. people's mindsets were better under Margaret Thatcher because she was a figure people could rally against, and the dark times for the working classes under her meant a lot of cultural revolt which led to some fantastic music. Mike Aram wrote on nme.com

Test Dept.'s involvement in the Miners' Strike is recorded in the now deleted 1985 LP, Shoulder to Shoulder, recorded with the South Wales Striking Miners Choir, all profits from which went to support the strike.TD & SWSMC performed throughout the country to raise money and awareness, and on the record they appear both on several separate tracks, and one collaboration, Comrades 夥 伴.

在被思旅淹沒的氣嚥裡 , 我輕觸你時間光幻的手 - ROME Die Æsthetik der Herrschafts- freiheit , a trilogy: 2 o ɪ 2

drowning in the endless thoughts of travelling, asphyxiatedly I lightly touch the hands of yours in time of hypotyposis.

.Wanderer, your footsteps are
the road, and nothing more;
wanderer, there is no road,
the road is made by walking.
By walking one makes the road,
and upon glancing behind
one sees the path
that never will be trod again.
Wanderer, there is no road -
Only wakes upon the sea.

Traveller, there is no pathway, there is only traveling itself.
Antonio Machado ( 26 julio 1875– 22 febrero 1939). Luigi Nono
( 29 gennaio 1924– 8 maggio 1990)
