After several busy days I finally managed to find some time to update this parallel reality with the fourth (of four) recordings by Саrmеn Мirаndа sent to me by José Serafim in form of Ademar rips.
While I was busy with other matters, several unpleasant happenings took place on the internet. First of all the usual “protectors of human rights, democracy and freedom of speech” who do not hesitate to enforce freedom of speech and democracy worldwide with bombs and guns in oil rich countries like Libya and heroin producing champions like Afghanistan, decided to censor the internet in a heavy (and clumsy) manner, under the pretext of protecting copyrighted files.
Luckily, they were forced to delay the voting in congress, but there is no doubt that sooner or later the internet will be a free place only for people living in independent countries of the free world, like Russia, China etc.
To prove that their intent is fighting piracy and not censorship, the censors just closed Megaupload and arrested the owners, charging them with all crimes in the book.
Unfortunately, I kept a number of my files on Megaupload and they are now lost.
I will probably upload them on another server, but there are some problems regarding this action. First of all, my slow upload speed, then the problem of checking all of my 800+ to find the links that lead to Megaupload.
The best solution is to rely on the visitors of Parallel Realities to write a comment under the post of an album they would like to have, but the link links to nothing & nowhere.
As it is probable that also other servers will face the fate of Megaupload, as well as lots of sites and blogs, I strongly advise all interested to download all that looks like something that is better to have than to have not as fast as possible.
Later might be too late.
While meditating upon these matters and downloading in a hamster like way, enjoy these sounds from a period forgotten and unaccessible to all except insiders:

PASS THE SALT, WALT!

Thanks! it is a great help for us all.
