Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ah!  Then I offer you the following Vangelis piece, I didn't put it in the diary because the connection was: hypnotism, an italian group called Hypnosis, who did a piece that was then re-worked by Vangelis.  This is the piece--the moments of special pleasure for me come one after the other.  It's all a fantasy in space with a Vangelis soundtrack, but at 3:50 there's a--for me--evocative shot of the astronaut on a foreign planet in his or her spacesuit, with just the subtlest of blue glows around the head casing--that blue strip where we live, carried to farthest space--and then, immediately afterwards (3:58) the ship taking off, the huge brown smog-cloud as it accelerates up and away from the planet, the sheer power described by that wall of exhaust!  And the final scenes, with the speaking clock...
