@Uncle Michael
You are wrong about New Orleans. Take it from the husband of a daughter of a mother from New Or-le-ans.
It is absolutely pronounced with four syllables. Unless one pronounces if N'awlins. There is a class distinction here. Upper-four syllables; lower-2 syllables.

Don't think it was a screwup, Brian. The League of Nations was quite detailed in its desires. They landlocked Iraq intentionally. Al Stewart's song League of Notions, while whimsical, does have a good historical base to it.
Avatar Fri. 2/3/17 11:17am Doug Schulkind:

I emulate my dear mother-in-law. She was no high-class woman, but she pronounced New Orleans with four syllables. Just whatever you do, do not pronounce it New Orleens. It was only pronounced that way in song for the easy rhyming opportunities. No one in New Orleans pronounces it New Orleens.

Yes, he will turn 101 this September, Jah willing.

And so is Biermann.
Avatar Fri. 2/3/17 11:26am Doug Schulkind:

Aha! Biermann I didn't know was still with us. Wonderful!

The word "Neger" wasn't offensive when this was recorded -- that is very much no longer the case. This is a fascinating song. Hi folks! (Ah, we just heard the nasty n-word in the mouth of the bad guy -- there is no longer any difference.)
  Fri. 2/3/17 11:28am goyim in the am:

Biermann is still around and still performing.
Avatar Fri. 2/3/17 11:29am Doug Schulkind:

I see that Biermann was born in '36. I thought he was much older. Good day, goyim in the am!

Comedian Harmonists always welcome, and their experience always, and now urgently, instructive.

Doug, your German pronunciation is extremely good. Hut ab!

Faking it based on Yiddish pronunciation will generally impress someone whose German is Viennese, like me.

Yvonne Fair -- what a lovely name. I just looked her up and see that she died at 51. Man, that's harsh.

Goodbye Brian and dog. Hello, Parq!

@goyim, I have the iPhone app and cannot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/3/17 11:48am Parq:

Apparently, her death was shrouded in mystery. Mostly, it is reported as "unknown causes". A somewhat creepy thing; if you Google search Yvonne Fair cause of death", one of the searches it auto-suggests is "What types of drugs did James Brown use?" Yeesh.

Thanks, Carmichael. I figured my posting style is idiosyncratic enough that folks can tell I'm for real.

How disappointing. I thought maybe James was gearing up for the 'Thon with a well-deserved vacation.
