Being a record of the ruminations, ramblings and obsessions of a Hound of the noblest breed (or so His Lordship claims, anyway). The focus being on dark music and culture, style, spirituality and - naturally – Basset Hounds.
Welcome to the chronicles of Lord Bassington-Bassington, coming to you from Little Storping in the Swuff – a quaint place located somewhere between England’s Lake District and the outskirts of the Norwegian capital.
This is intended as a log of His explorations of music, books, films and so on. I, your humble chronicler, is merely His Lordship’s secretary.

...and so has the new year. And we here at Bassington Manor have finally succeeded in luring His Lordship from underneath the blankets where he's been hiding for the last month or so, snarling and snapping at anyone trying to rouse him from his semi-hibernation.
In other words, The Lord Bassington-Bassington Chronicles can commence publication again.
So what better way to greet the new year than with a picture of the finished version of Miss Jeanne Sophie Aas’ stained-glass Cthulhu? Isn’t it absolutely, mind-shatteringly beautiful?
Incidentally, Miss Aas is having her first exhibition this February, details can be found on the event's Facebook page. His Lordship kindly - yet forcefully, like a hungry Basset hound - suggests that you attend.
It will be a busy winter for us here at Bassington Manor. There's Café Grössenwahns to arrange, the first one featuring none other than Mr. Salvatori of Italian supremos Spiritual Front, a new Lovecraftian film festival to be held, not to mention that The Bassington-Bassington Chronicles will hold a small celebration with none other than Mr. B, Gentleman Rhymer making his first live appearance in Norway, and between all this there's full-time jobs to attend to and a collection of weird stories to be written. And there is about a million other projects to be managed.
A belated happy new year to you all, and thank you for your patience.
