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…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
