    I still like the Seekers. Saw them live in Dunedin in my youth and have the autographs of all the original members.

    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    Johaan Joseph Fux I love his hairstyle and his name sounds German - a few things common with Trump. The scene on the jacket looks like a combo of birth at Bethlehem and King Herod's child killers - can you clear it up?

    Baroque is not my favourite style - they sort of never get the gloves on and break out of their own limitations and develop into a free-for-all like Beethoven's piano concertos. Like chess players too afraid to play the Sicilian.
