"The hell with it." "AIl right. The hell with it, But we'll spend it and I think it's wonderful. You can V\-rite afterwards. That way we can have the fun before I have a baby for one thing.

The minute you're not going to do something it will probably ma.ke you want to do it." "Then write, stupid. You didn't say you wouldn't write. Nobody said anything about worrying if you wrote.

I don't have to leave you when you write do I?""But there would you like us to go now when people begin to come here?" "Anywhere you want to go. Will you do it, David?" "For how long?"

The waiter brought the Annagnac and the young man told him to bring a cold bottle of Perrier water instead' of the syphon. The waiter poured two largeAnnagnacs a~d the young man put ice in the big glasses and poured in the Perrier. 'This will fix us," he said. "It's a hell of a thing to drink before lunch though." The girl took a long sip. "It's good;" she said. "It has a fresh clean healthy ugly taste." She took another long sip, "I can really feel it, Can you?" "Yes," he said and took a deep breath.

PALE PENGUIN created a new topic DGR043 FOURTHSTATE-DREAMVISION in the forums.


RELEASE INFO
ARTIST: FOURTHSTATE
TITLE: “DREAMVISION”
FORMAT: MP3/WAV
LABEL: DEEP GARNET RECORDS
CAT. No: DGR043
RELEASE DATE: LATE SEPTEMBER
GENRE: Deep-Breaks
COVER DESIGN: 2.46 Design
MASTERED: By Scapo @Dirty Drop Studios

DEEP GARNET RECORDS is the new quality V.I.M.RECORDS sub-label specialized on Deep-Breaks sound. Highly influenced by the deeper end of Breaks the label will be focused on deep n’ darkish Tech and Acid breaks, by some of the most promising international producers, for radio airplay, home listening and early hours dj sets.

Three days later Joseph Dixon slid a closed-circuit message plate across the desk to his boss. “Here. You might be interested in this.” Reinhart picked the plate up slowly. “What is it? You came all the way here to show me this?” “That’s right.” “Why didn’t you vidscreen it?” Dixon smiled grimly. “You’ll understand when you decode it. It’s from Proxima Centaurus.” “Centaurus!” “Our counter-intelligence service. They sent it direct to me. Here, I’ll decode it for you. Save you the trouble.” Dixon came around behind Reinhart’s desk. He leaned over the Commissioner’s shoulder, taking hold of the plate and breaking the seal with his thumb nail. “Hang on,” Dixon said. “This is going to hit you hard. According to our agents on Armun, the Centauran High Council has called an emergency session to deal with the problem of Terra’s impending attack. Centauran relay couriers have reported to the High Council that the Terran bomb Icarus is virtually complete. Work on the bomb has been rushed through final stages in the underground laboratories under the Ural Range, directed by the Terran physicist Peter Sherikov.” “So I understand from Sherikov himself. Are you surprised the Centaurans know about the bomb? They have spies swarming over Terra. That’s no news.”

DEEP GARNET RECORDS ARTISTS PROMO
FOURTHSTATE
All species of garnets possess similar physical properties and crystal forms, but differ in chemical composition. FOURTHSTATE is also known as Schorlomite with the formula Ca3Ti4+2(Fe3+O4)2(SiO4). Is sometimes regarded as a titanium-rich variety of Andradite but it is recognized as a distinct mineral species. It's a rare member of the Garnet group and due to his vast titanium content is reffered as the “strong and Deep-Tech garnet”. His tracks were identified in some caves in Australia and were brought to DEEP GARNET RECORDS laboratories where they're examined carefully by our technicians. Is named “Schorlomite” for its resemblance to ther black Touemaline mineral Schorl. His first DEEP GARNET outcome is the rollin and Deep-Tech beauty of “Dreamvision” which will be priceless in a few years. Watch out for more undergrounf gems by him in the near future
