    Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: "Prologue/Ride To Roswell/Call To Mulder" from "The X-Files", episode "My Struggle" (2016). Production of the new season, that will hit the screens in 2018, has already begun. As with last year's limited event series, there will only be two episodes evolving around the story arc. The remaining episodes will be stand-alone episodes again. While Mark Snow often used the stand-alone episodes to experiment musically, the story arc episodes had the musical concept pretty much set. The music is minimalistic, with some little musical motifs. This is also true for "My Struggle", the first episode of the limited event series. The music is very percussive with its pulsating rhythms. This concept was further developed by Snow in the final episode of the event series, "My Struggle II". The music from the limited event series was released on a 2CD set by La-La Land Records, limited to 3.000 copies. Enjoy!

    Meaning of Your Name

    Ok, it's all good fun. Smith, such a common name! Here goes... Interesting, I'd always assumed it was something to do with Blacksmiths, which is the medieval term for metal workers. Join me down at the river for a blood letting ceremony and I'll tell you more.... Are we all sitting comfortably? Good. Then I'll begin... I don't know about any blacksmiths or metal workers in the family, but on my father's side of the family and according to word of mouth, apparently a few generations back (great, great, great grandfather or so), a young lad ran away from school in South Africa after being beaten by his teacher for spilling some ink. He stowed away on a sailing ship and when eventually he was discovered out at sea, they took a liking to him and he became the captain's cabin boy. The story goes that he grew up on the ship and became an apprentice ship's carpenter and learnt his trade. Years later, he came to England and met a nurse, got married and stayed here. Somehow the family came to live in Birmingham. My grandad who is 97, moved from Birmingham to North Wales when my dad and his brother were boys. He was a steam train driver, which was apparently a high paid job back then. He just came home from work one night and told his wife and kids they were all moving to North Wales, and he took a demotion to work on the rail tracks, which apparently was unheard of. One son became a joiner (aka carpenter), the other a long distance lorry (truck) driver. Now both have grand-children. No sign of any metal workers though, as far as I know.

    Meaning of Your Name

    Discover the meaning and history behind your last name https://www.ancestry.com/learn/facts?o_xid=67028&o_lid=67028&o_sch=Content+Marketing My maiden name is "Chase," so here's that info. Please post yours. I look forward to reading them. My mother's family (both sides) were from Czechoslovakia with the last name of "Strbak" (Starbuck or Sterbuck in English). No meaning of the name was found, just statistics. They were from a town at the Czech Northern border named, "Strba." Wonder if there's a connection.

    It's a shame the show was cancelled and we didn't have closure. I thought it was good. Thrills me to say that I am a proud owner of this album. Thanks again Alex.
