  1. Since today there is a small Olympus-toy (WSM 550M in blue) hanging around my neck in order to collecting all the ideas that are necessary to achieve a TONY. If not I´ll buy a SONY.

  2. I like Fela Kuti's sound to dance with in parties. The monotony can be enjoyable while dancing. But often it is awful monotonous music even while dancing. Let's hope that the musical features some of the better pieces.

    In the 70-ies there was an african beat band whose name was Mombasa. But I can't find any remaining trace of them in the internet.
