Still breathing? Well, get yourself settled down … it’s dark and spooky time…

I’ve always been fascinated by true crime stories, especially the unsolved cases. The most famous example is the original ‘Jack the Ripper’ who terrorized London’s Whitechapel district in the late 1800s. Who was he? How did he avoid detection? Why did the murders suddenly stop? The case has baffled amateur and professional sleuths for more than a century. There are numerous books on the murders, and on Jack, the most interesting of which is the so-called ‘Diary of Jack the Ripper’ which names the killer and thus definitely solves the Ripper case. In keeping with the season, we’re off on a bloody murder tangent with a set of vids and links for Ripper fans to enjoy. The rest of youse can scroll down to the bottom for today’s ‘Halloween Fix’. 🙂

    • Thanks, SoFar! I had a few of the Glastonbury vids uploaded in the Concert Video Gallery but I’m not sure which set is there at present. So nice to see people uploading live shows. I’m swamped, as usual, and therefore late in responding to some of the comments here at Fixes. My apologies for nearly missing this one. Ack. 😦 HUGS!

  1. I love the Southern, scorching vibe of this song. Nick is sizzling hot here and we shouldn’t forget about Blixa, he changed his usual dreamy gaze into a quite shady one here! A sin on his mind indeed 😉
