Car l'étoile du berger, Said the Gramophone, a posté ses cent premiers chansons de 2010. Je les digère depuis cinq jours mais je dégotte toujours des pierreries (en fait, je n'avais jamais entendu les trois en tête...). J'avais fait l'acquisition des cinq chansons suivants pendant le cours de 2010 grâce aux mecs STG. Quelques ne figurent pas dans sa liste mais je les choisis parce qu'elles demontrent UNE veine/sonne que j'aime de Said The Gramophone: l'éther. Des chansons qui sont aériennes et floue mais sont, aux même temps, inflammables et enivrant...
A morbid, now regrettable, flight of fancy lead me to Google the word eunuch earlier. Reading soon snowballed into listening to 'Ave Maria' as sung by Allesandro Moreschi, 'the last castrato'. An internal organ shrivelled.
On screen, Dick Van Dyke has been rescued from untimely death by flying cars and magical nannies. Off screen, the veteran star of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Mary Poppins had to rely on the help of a pod of porpoises after apparently dozing off aboard his surfboard. "I'm not kidding," he said afterwards.
Van Dyke's ordeal began during an ill-fated trip to his local beach. "I woke up out of sight of land," the 84-year-old actor told Craig Ferguson on his TV chat show. "I started paddling with the swells and I started seeing fins swimming around me and I thought 'I'm dead!'"
Van Dyke was wrong. "They turned out to be porpoises," he said. "And they pushed me all the way to shore." The porpoises were unavailable for comment.
