Why would someone soldering use a welding helmet?
‘Dansband’ (Dance band) music is Sweden’s answer to USA country music. There is a whole book made from photos of 60’s dansbandmusiker (you can translate that easily enough) clothing. As I said, it had to be so bizarre that there was no chance it could be worn anywhere but on stage. Google ‘Gert Jonnys’ for more.
Wow, Gert Jonnys’ stage clothing. They had to be that weird so they would count as ‘scenkläder’ and be tax deductible.
Do we ever find out what happened to January?
Pippi is anything but stereotypical, she stands out, which was the whole point at the time. The early french translations toned her down a bit, she was just too much for them.
Pippi Långstrump is a swedish childrens book, written by Astrid Lindgren in the late 1940’s. Pippi Longstocking in English. Astrid didn’t mean anything by it, but those children were unhappy about it. And then there’s Pippi’s father.
It is racist. That’s just how it is. You may think it’s harmless, ok. But here’s the thing, it can be understood to be demeaning. Like the two little chinese girls who were a little upset about Pippi Långstrump saying that chinese people say ‘ching chong’. “We don’t talk like that” they said, “We don’t say ching chong”. Pippi would apologize, I’m sure, and so can anyone who cares about fomenting peace, love, and understanding. That said, I have participated in many chinese fire drills without reflecting over this. Live and learn.
I have a copy of Gene Autry’s Cowboy Code on the cork board. Not surprising that Earl chooses kindness and compassion if he follows the Code.
Lachschlaganfall? German for Laughter-induced syncope. This happens to me sometimes.
No, they do not see you like that. That image of you is reversed.
