via astro-gnome thanks!
What is your favorite album? Why?
Yes - Tales from Topographic Oceans because it’s mine all mine and makes me feel secluded and floaty
Are you religious?
Noooo very athetits
Have you lived in any country other than the current one you live in now?
How many languages do you speak? What are they?
I say officially 4 but it’s like: english, russian; french ok, spanish not really at all tbh
Favorite art movement?
Uhhmmmmm is early 20th century illustration like Edmund Dulac and JC Leyendecker and such a movement? Or the 70s scifi illustration movement. And islamic art/architecture. I hate art deco
Can you sew? Knit? Crochet?
No and honestly I don’t really get the point of it, mainly because I get the opposite of excited about knitwear, it looks boring and more importantly it’s too warm. I can see why it would be fun/calming to do but why would I want to make things that make me warm
Do you put any value in daily horoscopes, or astrology, taro, etc?
No but I still generally identify with my sign and skim my horoscope in the metro newspaper every day bc I’m lame. Yesterday it said “The only way you are going to get what you desire is to communicate with those who can help. Co-operate with them fully and make sure their and your needs are catered to”. Yesterday I also went for an initial appointment at a new mental health place which was mostly ok. The nurse said I have “extremely distorted and destructive thoughts” and low self-esteem and I’m finally hopeful because I feel like finally someone might acknowledge the fact that my mind is rly messed up and actually do something about it. Protip: ditch your gatekeeper shrink as soon as possible and get a proper one
Ever seen a ghost?
No and I don’t believe in that but I would try to be nice to one just in case
How do you take your coffee/tea?
I like iced coffee a lot lately because it’s better for my eternal problems of thirst/hot
Hot tho I like it with creams and sugars and stuff and I loove lattes and that kind of junk, but if I’m ordering regular then double-double is enough and doesn’t make me feel like I’ll get judged for putting too much shit in it.
Tea I only ever have the standard supremely diluted russian variety which I’m too lazy to keep around so I only have it when I go back to fam house but there it’s like a few times a day, with 2 sugars and a lemon slice. Sometimes I drink green tea if there’s nothing else.
Choose one: The Beatles, The Kinks, The Stones, The Who, The Beach Boys. Go!

I’m not tagging anyone I’m not embarrassing myself
Past Present & Future
@1973 UK Pressing (early 80s pressing)
Past, Present and Future is Al Stewart’s fifth studio album, released in October 1973 in the UK and in May 1974 in the US. This album is considered Stewart’s first “major album” and it reached #133 on the Billboard Rock Album chart in 1974. He had taken on a different approach from his previous, folkier work, an approach that would stay with him for most of his career. All songs on this record have historical themes, each song representing a decade of the 20th century. The final song, “Nostradamus,” is about the famous supposed prophet and his prophecies.
In the programme for the U.K. concert tour that promoted the album, Stewart is quoted as saying “My first four albums have been, for me, an apprenticeship. The new album…..is my thesis”. It states that the album “is set for release on CBS in early October. ‘Terminal Eyes’ is released as a single on September 28th.”
