A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20am Ken From Hyde Park:

NPR had a story on Duke Ellington. His dad was a butler and his parents dressed him in fancy clothes. His classmates teased him and called him Duke. Fortunately, he took it in stride and didn't become disillusioned and not start his music career.

@ghostofpeterfalk Did you see the video of Marcel Kittel and John Degenkolb trying to get up Jenkin Road in Sheffield? Terrifying!! road.cc...
Avatar 9:48am KP:

That was a great song but he is apparently not associated with the movie. As for that, it's one of the best ive ever seen of any type.
Avatar 9:57am KP:

Final detail, Jodorowsky's other son Brontis is in the documentary quite a bit. He was to play a big part in the doomed Dune and a tyke was featured in his father's cult classic El Topo.
Avatar 9:58am βrian:

I read "ignited" as if analogous with "detonated." That's a powerful dish!
Avatar 10:01am ghostofpeterfalk:

@Adrian...Ouch! That looks utterly horrendous!! Thank you for that. Puts my cycle in perspective and it's not flat here. As to the Tour, the region is salivating at the prospect of hosting Le Grand Depart. Should really be something. Empathy with tube strike fella.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01am Ken From Hyde Park:

I feel troubled when I see shark fin soup or swordfish on a menu. Those seem unsustainable.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04am Adrian in London:

@ghostofpeterfalk We had a Grand Depart in London a while back and it was great. Yes, the tube strike's bad but a tube without vital staff and ticket offices will be a hell of a lot worse.

Pantani and his drugs would have made mincemeat of it!!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08am Adrian in London:

Hah Brian, maybe, but that looks *such* a brutal climb. It's like the Mur de Huy but in Sheffield.

@Adrian, yes of course, sympathy all-round. @Brian, you could be right, a sad loss.

Dang, jealous. Wish we could get a grand start here in DC. There were rumors that Giro would start here 2015 or so but no dice.

Looking forward to the latest take on Boris Vian's wonderful book, L'ecume des Jours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49am Brian in UK:

@ghostofpeterfalk I remember taking my daughter to Sheffield uni for an interview and trying to get out to Kinder Scout whilst she was there but time beat me. As I came back I saw Record Collector, went in and casually asked if they had any Umajets CDs. The man went upstairs without checking and came back with two. Know your stock.
