Trying to explain "Mozart Requiem" and the link to "The Supermarket Guy 3: Supermarket Dominium"

It was a part around just after the mid point of the book. I thought of a scenario, where a very important, thrilling, music was needed for a background piece to move the action along. To make things interesting.

It had to be classical music. After all, isn't that was where all the modern music we all listen to today takes its roots from?  As my English instructor once told me, there are only so many plots that we can take and make a story out of, and it all originated from Shakespeare. Interesting concepts. Are we just expanding on what was then?

Here is a link to the Mozarts Requiem from a St. Matthews choirs internet page.

Very strong words, and it was indeed Mozarts last work. He did not have time to finish it, from how the story goes from Wikipedia, but it was completed by a different artist over time.

In reading the words, it directs you to a poignant, straight, get to the point to a kind of a last stand. The end. A funeral mass. A point of transition from life to death, perhaps.

Maybe you can see something different in there. All I know, is that it fit in a good place with the book. A humor book, of all things. The life and death struggle that occurs when the piece is played, and is referred to 3 times in my book, during 3 such satirical struggles.

I was taken aback on how randomly choosing a song of such transition for someone who passed away, and how it does somehow powerfully fit with the theme of the book and the severity of the situations at hand.

I began to study the piece of music I chose, from a list of Mozarts music I knew not, that I typed in before even knowing the words or meaning to it.

I then realized it was meant to be placed in there, that it fitted exactly where it should be, like destiny or fate as they meshed intrinsically together like the stone work in a mausoleum for the defeated in battle.

Till next time...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
