Freddie Matthews writes from London 49 year old Canadian singer-songwriter Ron Sexsmith returns with his 13 album in 22 years of releasing albums.

Granted, not all of these are actual new studio recordings but I’m making the point that Sexsmith is no new boy on the music scene.

 The Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (Russian: Ру́сская Правосла́вная Це́рковь Заграни́цей, Russkaya Pravoslavnaya Tserkov' Zagranitsey), also called the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad, ROCA, or ROCOR, is a semi-autonomous part of the Russian Orthodox Church.

ROCOR was formed as a jurisdiction of Eastern Orthodoxy as a response against the policy of Bolsheviks with respect to religion in the Soviet Union soon after the Russian Revolution of 1917, and separated from the Russian Church of the Moscow Patriarchate in 1927 after an imprisoned Patriarch Sergius I of Moscow pledged the Church’s qualified loyalty to the Bolshevik state.

 The Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia officially signed the Act of Canonical Communion with the Moscow Patriarchate on May 17, 2007 restoring the canonical link between the churches. Critics of the reunification argue that the issue of KGB infiltration of the Moscow Patriarchate church hierarchy has not been addressed by the Russian Orthodox Church.

 The Church has over 400 parishes worldwide, and an estimated membership of over 15,000 people. Within the ROCOR there are 13 hierarchs, and also monasteries and nunneries in the United States.
Here we go again: Britain is dragged into another war. But at least there's no talk of freedom and democracy this time.

Game of Thrones
Sword and sorcery is a sub-genre of fantasy and historical fantasy, generally characterized by sword-wielding heroes engaged in exciting and violent conflicts. An element of romance is often present, as is an element of magic and the supernatural. Unlike works of high fantasy, the tales, though dramatic, focus mainly on personal battles rather than world-endangering matters. A film genre tangentially related to sword and sorcery, at least in name, is sword-and-sandal, though its subjects are generally oriented to biblical times and history instead of fantasy first used in 1961 by British author Michael Moorcock in the fanzine Amara a proposed epic fantasy.

American sword and sorcery author Fritz Leiber responded to Michael in a different  journal called Ancalagon in April 1961  creating sword-and-sorcery as a potential catchphrase for the field". He expanded on this in the July 1961 issue of Amra, commenting: I feel more certain than ever that this field should be called the sword-and-sorcery story.The Warrior and the Sorceress is a 1984 Argentine-American fantasy action film directed by John C. Broderick and starring David Carradine and María Socas.
The Warrior and the Sorceress

 It was written by Broderick (story and screenplay) and William Stout. The Warrior and the Sorceress is a version of the classic Kurosawa film Yojimbo. The film is noted chiefly for containing extensive nudity and violence, being one of the more extreme examples of the sword-and-sorcery genre. On a distant galaxy lies the desert planet of Ura, which has two sons. There, two rival warlords, Zeg and Bal Caz, constantly fight against each other in a battle over the village's only wellspring. The mercenary warrior Kain emerges and announces that his skills are for hire to the highest bidder. A beautiful sorceress appears and is taken captive, changing Kain's purpose to take the well for himself, and instead choosing to save the sorceress and the village people. Kain starts entangling the situation, and by taking advantage of the ongoing feud, he seeks to debilitate the rival warlords and defeat them.

North Korea is lead by The Democratic People's Republic of Korea this is how you pronounce it Chosŏn'gŭl and it looks like this 조선민주주의인민공화국. In 1896, Korea was redivided into thirteen provinces, and the two districts were merged to re-form Kangwŏn Province.

Although Wonju rejoined Kangwŏn province, the provincial capital was moved to Chuncheon. In 1945 was divided into Soviet and American zones in the north and south. The Empire of Japan changed back in 1945 after losing the war there land was devided up by American admin and U.S. military forces and the Soviet military forces.

In todays post Saul Bedakker writes from Japan Tokyo about how China is frightened of North Korea and how this effects South Korea. The Republic of Korea (South Korea) a sovereign state in the Korean Peninsula. Korea original title goes back as far as the Goryeo Middle Ages dynasty. Neighbours are China to the west, Japan to the east, North Korea to the north, and the Korea Strait to the south.

Interestingly Saul mentions Israel and suggests a simple message for Bibi Netanyahu in regards to North Korea combined with the things going on there in Israel and what Isreal can learn from the capital of North Korea Pyongyang. The US, Japan, China and anyone else to shove their sanction regime up you know what then tell us what is. What’s further caused the Far East flutter is North Korea’s insistence that the nuclear test is in defiance of Pyongyang  the United States sanctions created a new level of control in the state. The UN Security Council condemned the launch by the North Koreans magic mushroom ballistic missile and do not want to hear or read about a nuclear warhead creating more magic mushroom clouds.

Mongolia–North Korea relations are the historic and current bilateral relations between Mongolia and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. The two countries have established diplomatic relations between them on October 15, 1948. Mongolia became the second country to recognise North Korea after the Soviet Union. Although Mongolia did not directly participate in the Korean War, it expressed ideological support for North Korea and supported them with animals to survive and  material to keep the war-orphaned children alive.

 In 1956, North Korean leader Kim Il-sung visited Mongolia and expressed his appreciation of Mongolia’s support during wartime; Mongolian leader Yumjaagiin Tsedenbal paid a reciprocal visit to Pyongyang later that year. At that time, the two countries signed the Agreement on Economic and Cultural Cooperation and in the following year began to conduct bilateral trade. The two countries signed their first friendship and cooperation treaty in 1986. The White House  and President Obama with spokesman.

So what about China announced this week that they have to always monitor stuff from Beijing China and have to add it to the sanction list. North Korean and this nuclear test in 2006 created a massive magic mushroom in the sky. Shroom: The Cultural History of the Magic Mushroom is a book by Andy Letcher.

The border map of China. Its neighbours are Russia, India and Pakistan – each a nuclear power and each a spoken or unspoken threat. The other border is with North Korea. It is not in China’s interest to have her final neighbour as a developing nuclear weapons once it gets the real magic mushroom business moving. North Korea wants some of that respect the underground monitors report the big bang Magic mushroom from Pyongyang. The magic mushroom is also psilocybin and psilocin and both have psychedelic effects proved to create anxiety and panic attacks, depression and paranoid delusions. The Imperial College of London and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine  said can also be an anti-depressant according to results viewed of various brain scans of people who were tested. Of course today's post has nothing to do with any of this, this post is more about Magic Mushroom warheads, much more difficult to understand or measure.
