So you always have wanted to understand and, have probably heard someone mentioned, this mysterious form of human folly/illness still resistant or immune to science and medical cure called 'romantic syndrome' [melancholy]? Well, it would be pretentious of me to claim to know exactly what this is, let alone being able to prescribe the right dose of remedy!
That said, there is this rather feverish [if misplaced] rumour circulating on social media of late that School of Vice is no longer quite as romantic, and therefore has been cured of the syndrome. This presumption is largely based on the recent 'Golden memories' postings where [completely out of character?] happier and generally more cheerful songs have been selected instead! School of Vice wishes to put this unfounded rumour to rest by reassuring readers and the public alike that the aforementioned syndrome has not been cured, nor is there the desire to be rid of it! Just sample the latest tune posted below and you will agree. Shall I leave you with a quote from the ancient Greeks about the agelessness of 'love'? Well, being perspicacious and perceptive that most of you readers are [otherwise you wouldn't be regular tuners to this forum, eh?], I suppose there's no need for me to write down the full quote here ....
On a serious note, may I [on behalf of the admins] wish you and all your family and loved ones a bright new year filled with all the blessings of a righteous life and the harmonious smile of an innocent, pure heart.
NB: We have appreciated readers' concern about their preference for keeping their comments anonymous or have them posted anonymously, and have therefore decided to keep the comment posting option accessible to all albeit via a moderated mode. This means that anyone could post either without first registering, registered or anonymously. Most comments posted will be held for a little while [this is because School of Vice drinks endless cups of tea and coffee...] or be held longer [this is because, yes you guessed it, School of Vice is offline, sleeping like a log!], but most comments will be posted - eventually. So please stay patient and wait for your posted comment[s] to be published instead of posting multiple posts of the same comments.
With kindest thoughts and sincerest wishes,
