Music of the Night

Nighttime sharpens, heightens each sensation
Darkness stirs and wakes imagination
Silently the senses abandon their defences...

Slowly, gently, night unfurls its splendour
Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender
Turn your face away from the garish light of day
Turn your face away from cold, unfeeling light
And listen to the music of the night...

Close you eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams
Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before
Close your eyes, let your spirit start to soar
And you'll live as you've never lived before...

Softly, deftly, music shall caress you
Hear it, feel it, secretly possess you
Open up your mind, let your fantasies unwind
In this darkness which you know you cannot fight
The darkness of the music of the night...

Let your mind start a journey through a strange, new world
Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before
Let your soul take you where you long to go
Only then can you belong to me...

Floating, falling, sweet intoxication
Touch me, trust me, savour each sensation
Let the dream begin, let your darker side give in
To the harmony which dreams alone can write
The power of the music of the night...

You alone can make my song take flight
Help me make the music of the night...

Satan Takes a Holiday...

Trapezoid Cake: Photo of a previous celebratory pastry.

The Commemoration of the Anniversary of the Nativity of The Black Dragon was spent in great revery this day, in the day and year of Our Lord Satan February 1st, XL Anno Satanas.

First stop...

* Trader Joes, or "The Addams Family Food Shoppe": How I enjoy these forays to this alternative foode establishment, a veritable alienesque source of provisional indulgences. Sparsely populated and roomy, open from 9am - 9pm, shelves filled with products from around the world, and with a pleasant atmosphere to boot, you won't find Coca-Cola, Cheetos, or Budweiser here, only choice and specialty items for the discerning palate.


* Trader Joe's Double-Cream Brie: Devilish soft cheese overwhelming the senses with waves of culinary bliss. Excellent on bagels, croissants, and crackers. Although earlier this evening I invented a new confection called a "Briezza" {pronounced "breetzah"} which consists of a pizza of your choice, with brie and avocado chunks added as an extra topping - it's magically devilicious! I purchased an entire brie wheel, considering that it shall be enjoyed for days to come.

* Blackthorn Cider: I was compelled to pick up a 1 litre bottle of My namesake {sans the "e"} when I spied it displayed so majestically on the shelf - I thought it rather infernal providence, as it were, and might have regretted not purchasing it, so now it joins My collection of rare beverages along with the Logan Fils Absinthe.

Trader Joe's Old Fashioned Cheesecake: A three-pound cheesecake delight stacked about 9" high. Its round surface will provide a perfect template for a Baphomet design. A photo will be provided when developed.

* Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate covered Espresso Beans: Name says it all. Perfect for those late-day periods of work, and overall natural stimulant.

Then it was off to the theatre to catch The Phantom of The Opera, and it was a perfect time too - the theatre seemed virtually completely vacant, a veritable haunted total environment {considering each individual theatre is cast in a different historical theme}, which was pleasantly eerie: LB and I practically had the entire establishment to ourselves, and it really felt like one's private viewing room. A review of this film shall be produced soon, but as of now, I can write that I grant it a 3/5 rating.
