there has, apparently, been some controversy over the fact that i have not made any reference at all to the recent, and indeed sad, passing of Demis Roussos on this blog. well, look you see, i thought it would be appropriate to hand over this blog to Spiros for a befitting tribute.
Spiros has, understandably, wanted to take some time to collect, if not gather, his thoughts on the subject. he has now done this, and forwarded a tribute. here it is, entirely unedited bar the parts removed to comply with certain laws in respect of libel, morality and, in one of the more unusual passages of his tribute, bestiality.
I suppose it had to happen eventually. It snowed overnight in London. Everything has come to a standstill. It seems the heating at [TEXT REMOVED ON LEGAL ADVICE] was ahead of its time.
I prefer to think of it as my parting gift from Demis. The snow is after all about as light as some culturally retarded non-Hellenic ignoramus might describe the great man's talents. It is also virgin white - which is what you were sure to remain if you followed the great one's dress sense. In his final [TEXT MOST SERIOUSLY REMOVED ON LEGAL ADVICE] to austerity, he made it snow deeper in my yard than in the [TEXT REMOVED IN RESPECT OF COMPLIANCE WITH OBSCENITY LAWS] round the corner who I work with. I hope Bjorn Grindberg gets that message through to Merkel
so, there you have it. i am sure that Spiros has spoken for many in this regard, and i trust that this addresses the interest in me mentioning Demis on this blog.
be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
