Vanilla Gershwin Grand ~ Turbolid Custom Covers

Vanilla Turbo Lid
Behold the Vanilla Gershwin Grand, my personal choice of Turbolid combination.
All my life I have taught people a blessed miracle of music, that whence the passion of creativity resides within one, an orchestra can be painted from a pallette of only three colours.

This is one reason I prefer the ten hole Blues Harp over the grander twelve hole Chromatic Harmonicas.

At least it certainly has become so ever since I discovered ‘Country Tuning’, a gentle change in pitch of the 5 draw to a sharp note, creating a Major 7th chord in 2nd position. Miraculously, this simple change in the pitch of a single reed actually harbours, unto the dedicated artist, a whole library of jazz chords and phrases.

Yet the reason I am writing today, is to spread the word about a fabulous company in the USA, Turbo Harp, who, amongst their many revolutionary innovations in harmonica evolution, created the Turbo Lid, a specially shaped ergonomic cover lid for your ten hole blues harmonica.

Ghost ~ Dice For Two & Who?

Ghost ~ A Yahtzee type game by Simon Jepps
Ghost
A spooky kind of Yahtzee game, by Simon Jepps
Prepare thine self for a challenge of ghouls,
Hence a hand by chance worthy only of fools,
For this ancient game art greater than its host,
Play not one or two, but three, play the Ghost!

The heart beckons, aye, yet again I was drawn to the simplicity of the dice and the myriad of labyrinths kept hidden within their faces.

Simple and yet beautiful aren’t they? How many games have been invented with only a handful of dice? Only the roaring oceans of sailors gone before could possibly know.

Here then is another game of my own.

This game dawned on me in a kind of “eureka” moment. I was thinking very deeply about the game of Yahtzee and pondering over its limitations.

I wanted to somehow bring an extra dimension of strategy to what is quite simply a game of mere dice.

Whence the moment of realisation struck I was actually quite awestruck to have worked it out. Perhaps it was a premonition, perhaps it was divination, or perhaps… it was my Ghost.

Zouterterrestrial & Extraterrestrial ~ Ye Galearthéan Wanderers

GIOFESTThe Galearthéan Institute Of Flat Earth Science & Technology
Read our Mission Statement

GIOFEST would like to introduce the Zouterterrestrial and a new definition of Extraterrestrial unto our world scientific terminology and academic community.

Zouterterrestrial: noun; sentient being, organism or artefact originating from the outer cosmos, or the near spacial realms above the Galearthéan planar disc; a spacial alien.

Extraterrestrial: noun; sentient being, organism or artefact originating from the extra planar terrain beyond Antarctica; a planar alien.

It is a firmly held Galearthéan belief that the term “Extraterrestrial” was invented and popularised by certain powers, such as NASA, because they who control the academic indoctrination of society know for a fact that our world is flat and that 99% of these beings who visit our world come from the EXTRA terrain found beyond Antarctica.

Thus the term Zouterterrestrial is actually more appropriate since it defines “those beings out of this world”.

It is alas, extremely unlikely that our world would be visited by sentient beings from beyond the stars, because voyaging to Galearthéa from the stars is akin to travelling between two galaxies.

However, there may indeed be sentient beings living on nearby planets orbiting within our own galactic bulge, such as Venus, Mars, or even Saturn, and these beings would likewise be called Zouterterrestrials, but as of yet their existence has not been confirmed.

Meanwhile and until that monumental time arrives, please embrace the Galearthéan galplanological terms Zouterterrestrial and Extraterrestrial.
