The Nice Crowd

A few days ago I was honoured by one of now quite rare visits by relatives. My only nephew and one of my four nieces spent a couple of hours chatting over a spartan meal here in my flat.

They are both nice and friendly, hard working people, married and middle aged. We talked about their family and work – and also, of course, the indubitable fact that I have far too many book stashed away in my small flat.

Inquiring about plans for the upcoming summer vacation I almost choked on my coffee when learning, that my nephew and his young wife and their two young kids – one being only 18 months – plan to spend a week in mid July in Nice, the not so nice town in the southernmost part of France.

However, if you like it hot, and if you think you can handle your kids safely in the scorching heat of ‘le Medi’, you might of course defend this place as being super for an ‘exotic’ vacation?

Still I find the plan slightly strange, and can’t help wondering if someone, and then who exactly, may have put this idea into their heads?

Of course I’m burdened by a general knowledge about the large metropolitan centres of le Medi being hotspots for mafia, paedophilia, kidnappings of children and all sorts of secret service shenanigans. Anyone can read about it, f.i. on http://aanirfan.blogspot.com .

However I nearly forgot about this conumdrum until last tuesday morning (June 12), when I woke up from an obviously clairvoyant, although seemingly somewhat confused dream-vision, going approx. like this:

“I was examining a page from our family history and thus found that my grandfather ‘O.’ had had yet another daughter, that however only lived to be 2 y.o.a.

“I asked my big sister, sitting nearby, if she was aware of this fourteenth(!) child of our grandparents, that only lived to be 2.

“She said: Yes, I think she was called Mary.

As I said, a vision apparently a bit confused (for thirdparties), whence necessary to transmute it into plain language.

As a general rule (clairvoyant) dream visions hold their information in a compressed as well as coded form. You might perhaps also compare such visions to holograms, that release additional information when you shift your viewpoint slightly.

Exposition:

1. My grandfather O. has several great-granddaughters but only one great-grandson, also called O., my above mentioned nephew.

2. It’s not my grandfather, but his father, my great-grandfather that begot 13 children. His name was J.O.

3. The name of my nephew’s baby son is also J.O., he is now 18 months of age.

4. The name of my newphew’s young daughter is Mary, she is now 9 years of age.

And summing up:

5. The following names are heard/seen in the vision: O., J.O. and Mary.

6. Someone called O. apparently has progeny (two young childs), that isn’t supposed to live long.

7. One of said progeny is a girl named Mary, supposed to live only to be 2 y.o.a.

8. But as Mary is already 9 y.o.a. the 2 year-lifespan might more likely apply to the baby son, called J.O., who is now 1-1/2 y.o.a.

I’ve mentioned before, I’m sure, that my clairvoyant (dream)visions are, if not exclusively then mostly telepathic. Whence I have to presume that ‘someone’ have been discussing plans somewhat in accordance with above exposition.

Today is Saturday, and another very nice day here in downtown Copenhagen. But waking up this morning, I remembered two clairvoyant visions.

One: I saw a lanky, strong young man with a thin black beard and tatoos on his arms. He was sitting in a city bus, but ‘backwards’, indicating the Line 5C, often used by me Saturday mornings to or fro the fleamarkets. Hence I evaded the Line 5C today.

Two: I was helping someone upstairs clearing discarded bathroom fittings and the like. It could possibly indicate someone upstairs intends to move out? Obviously Mossad would very much like to move into a flat almost directly above mine.

Why is this perhaps, or even probably, considered of great inportance? To try and answer this, we need to go back a few days, when I reposted these two tweets:

27.Feb.2018 At abt. 3 AM had clairvoyant vision of small girl held captive in crate, and scared witless. I guess the SecretPolice/Intel.Services would like to #kidnap my nephews kids? I wonder if to be locked-up in suspected Mossad-safe-house nearby?

https://blocnotesimma.wordpress.com/2017/08/27/charlie-hebdo-or-death-by-black-magic/

15.May.2018 Have just learned that suspected Mossad safe-house in our neighbourhood has recently had sound-proof room installed. Ideal for confining and torturing #kidnapped: A Mossad specialty?

https://blocnotesimma.wordpress.com/2018/04/11/the-gussian-gold-a-satire/

So why may it be so important for Mossad to have access to ‘secure premises’ real close to where I live?

The answer probably may be found in the techniques of the Psychic Attacs of the Satanists?

The Satanist Black Magicians teach (read le Vey or Crowley, f.i.) that the power of a malicious psychic attack or assassination attempt can be very much enhanced by torturing and/or murdering someone more or less close to the target while performing the Black Magic ‘Sermon’ of the psychic attack.

Furthermore, that the distance between the attacker(s) and the target is significant. The shorter the distance, the better (read f.i. a great story of the Canadian Th. Illion traveling incognito in Tibet before the war; he visited a secret underground monastry obviously run by satanists, and barely escaped with his life).

No doubt it’s a real big problem for the moneyed elite and their black magicians that they have not yet been able to ‘do me in’ with their evil psychic attacks. It’s quite unusual, no doubt.

But let’s leave these sick minds alone for a while and return to a very nice Saturday afternoon. And, importantly – today is also the very last day of the ongoing cycle at the permanent dutch book sale here in central Copenhagen (on the Coal Market – Kultorvet).

The price is 5 kr (80 cents) per volume. Usually I haul about 40 volumes on ‘the last day’. Today I made do with 36 – i.e. a measurable improvement! Frankly most of the 36 volumes are intended as gifts for friends and family. But let’s take a quick look on some of them.

1. PIERROT. Erling Schroeder fortæller om Karen Blixen. Rhodos, Copenhagen, 1984, 52 p., hardbound.

The author, one Erling Schroeder about whom I shamefully know nothing, apparently knew Karen Blixen the last 20 years of her life. I.e. until 1962.

Although I lived in and around Rungsted from 1959 and up through the sixties, I only saw her once, must have been in 1960-61. I was biking from Rungsted Torv – possibly from Villa Jomsborg where we lived in those days – down to the beach one blazing hot summer day. Being young and sunburned and biking without a shirt, something she seemed to appreciate.

The book is adorned with the likenesses of Blixen and author Schroeder. Both photographed by the well known portraitist Rie Nissen (now deceased). I was once the fortunate owner of a Linhof camera, that had belonged to Rie Nissen.

I’m looking forward to reading this slim volume.

2. ROTTEN REJECTIONS. A Literary Companion. Edited by André Bernard. Introduction by Bill Henderson. Pushcart Press, Wainscott, NY, 1990. 101 p., hardbound, w. original dust cover.

Another slim volume easily overlooked in the chaotic shelves af the final days of a sale. I suspect, however, that it’s in fact a small gem, that may even be well worth the price of all 36 volumes? Here are a couple of specimens of the authors ‘rotten rejections’.

‘Northanger Abbey’ – by Jane Austen. 1818. ‘We are willing to return the manuscript for the same (advance) as we paid for it’.

Memo from George Bernard Shaw…
‘I finished my first book seventy-six years ago. I offered it to every publisher on the english-speaking earth I had ever heard of. Their refusals were unanimous: and it did not get into print until, fifty years later, publishers would publish anything that had my name on it…

‘I object to publishers: the one service they have done me is to teach me to do without them. They combine commercial rascality with artistic touchiness and pettishness, without being either good business men or fine judges of literature. All that is necessary in the production of a book is an author and a bookseller, without the intermediate parasite.’

The state of affairs, as so ably put forth here by mr. Shaw, may explain why it’s so important for the Global power brokers to disrupt and destroy as many independent blog portals as at all possible. Compare my tweet from a few days ago:

(16.3.2018/12.6.2018) Sadly the DeepState has eventually succeded in disrupting and virtually destroying the 2 only independent Danish blog-portals: smartlog.dk (f.e. imma.smartlog.dk – gone!) and litteratursiden.dk (f.e. litteratursiden.dk/blogs/gert-pedersen – gone!)

3. VOLTAIRE. By K.F.Plesner. Munksgaard, Copenhagen, 1965. 79 p. paperback.

Another slim volume, easily overlooked when browsing the well stocked bookcases. Mr. Plesner was a well known literary critic and connoisseur of french literature. I also bought George Brandes two volume edition of his work on Voltaire (I already own vol. two in a splendid first edition, but thought I might as well buy the whole set at paltry 10 kr – more later). Mr. Plesners slim volume may conceivably be useful as an introduction to Mr. Brandes’ massive volumes.

Perhaps I should remark, that I’m the fortunate owner of Voltaire’s collected works in a splendid French edition from the mid nineteenth century (Two-and-thirty volumes or something like that)?

4. A GLOSSARY OF JOHN DRYDEN’S CRITICAL TERMS. By H.James Jensen, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, 1969, 135 p. nicely bound in cloth.

On the inside of the dust cover you read:

‘Although John Dryden is, as Samuel Johnson described him, the father of modern criticism, his critical writings are difficult for twentieth-century readers to understand and appreciate.

‘Part of the problem lies in the fact that many of the critical terms which Dryden used have changed or expanded in meaning since his time…’

Surely a nice buy for 80 cents.

5. THE WORDSWORTH COMPANION TO LITERATURE IN ENGLISH. Ed. by Ian Ousby. Cambridge University Press, 1988/1992. 1036 p. Paperback.

Another great buy for 80 cents. Appears unused.

6. I DIGTERENS VÆRKSTED. Udvalgte Interviews fra ‘The Paris Review’. Med forord af Tom Kristensen. Rasmus Fischers Forlag, Copenhagen, 1964, 324 p., nicely bound in half cloth.

From the english/american ‘Writers At Work’ (which I own). In this Danish edition are interviews with Francois Mauriac, Ezra Pound, Eliot, Pasternak, Henry Miller, Kat. Anne Porter, Aldous Huxley, Thornton Wilder, Faulkner, Hemingway, Laurence Durrell, Sagan.

Nicely illustrated with photostats of selected manuscripts.

7. STUDIER I KOMPARATIV LITTERATUR. Af Paul Krüger. Gyldendal, Copenhagen, 1968, 265 p, paperback.

I already own this volume, but feel sure someone might appreciate it as a gift.

Mr. Krüger is, I believe perhaps the third most prominent literary critic of the 20. century – after Paul Rubow and Kai Friis Møller? In this volume he treats of Voltaire, Shakespeare, Beaumarchais, Hugo, Taine, Verlaine, Balzac, Holberg, H.C.Andersen, I.P.Jacobsen and George Brandes.

Once more you feel it almost incredible that no one but yourself want to spend 80 cents on this valuable volume. Only two hours before it would ultimately be discarded.

8. KUNSTEN AT SKRIVE OG ANDRE ESSAYS (AF PAUL RUBOW). I udvalg ved Hakon Stangerup. Gyldendal, paperback, 1964, 339 p.

I already own most of Mr. Rubow’s books, quite a few by the way. This compact volume is thus intented to be presented to a friend or relative.

Once more: It’s well nigh incredible no one has wanted to spend 80 cents on this selection of Mr. Rubows magnificent essays.

In my world Rubow takes the position as the foremost Danish literary critic of the 20. century. Mr.Kai Friis Møller comes close, but I feel Mr. Rubow takes the price on account of his freshness of style and his encyclopedic knowledge.

His knowledge of french history is likewise impressive. I just finished reading (most of) his history of the Sun King, Louis XIV. And I frankly now feel I need not read another book on Louis – Rubow is just that fresh, independent and informed.

It’s almost the same feeling you have after reading f.i. Palle Lauring’s essay on the (insane) Swedish King Carl XII.

9. LITTERATUR LEKSIKON. Af Folmer Christensen og Lotte Eskelund. Gjellerup, Copenhagen, 1969, 300 p. Hard bound.

There were two samples of this book on the sale, and I forgot to buy the second (both intended as gifts), that’s now probably discarded.

10. FRANCOIS DE VOLTAIRE. Af Georg Brandes. Copenhagen, Jespersen og Pio, 1967, 2 vols., paperback.

I already mentioned this title by our greatest critic of the 19. century. Both volumes are practically in condition like new.

11. SKRIBENTER OG BØGER. Af Kai Friis Møller. Copenhagen, Gyldendal, 1942. 359 p. Paperback.

A profusion of essays with literary critique by one of our two most prominent critics of the 20. century.

As a literary connoisseur he’s probably second to none of his period. Only Mr. Rubow gets my vote, perhaps on account of his irresistible ‘schutzpah’ and great historical knowledge?

Once again: Incredible no one want this almost inexhaustible trowe of knowledge and wisdom on literature and life, by one of our finest pens.

12. DANSK-ENGELSK ORDBOG. By Hermann Vinterberg og C.A.Bodelsen. 2.ed. revised and expanded. Gyldendal, Copenhagen, 1966., nicely bound in cloth.

Of course I own (at least) one specimen of this magnific dictionary (for translating the Danish into English), that I use regularly. But my actual sample is rather dogeared from use whence I want to exchange it for this specimen, that’s almost like new. Quite a buy for 10 kr!
