Blue lava in Indonesia
I hope Frau won’t mind my stepping on her toes here, but these are just too cool to pass up.
I add to this a musical selection: Le Moribond/Seasons In The Sun. Saith EBD: “Not only did Jacks‘ clumsy, Hallmark Card-esque redaction of the original lyrics effectively invert the narrative sentiment of the original, which was world-weary in a blithe, charming, characteristically Gallic way, but his metronomic, almost lobotomizing delivery of the melody managed to hammer Brel’s highly-adept, skipping-stone musical phrasing into a odorless, tasteless paste.”
Bien sure, c’est vrai. Zut alors. Tabarnac.
