Philology and esoterica: scribblings, ravings and mutterings.

Have you all made note of the (formerly) secret underground Italian temples? Though the content is rather too hippy for my taste, I have to grant that the style and technical execution are bloody fine. It's good to know that humans can still produce quality and intricacy on a large scale; by modern standards it probably does indeed qualify as a wonder of the world.
Also inspiring is this unassuming fellow. I love the looks of pessimistic resignation and contempt from the judges and audience before they are blown away by secret talent and Puccini.
