Go for it Franco - the sun has set, which means it is officially not day-drinking, and you are not a wino.

Morton Gould does an achingly beautiful Summertime on his album of the same name. Slow and mournful and full of yearning. Good music to make a pie to.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm Candelarba:

Perhaps he's about to teach us the mating habits of toads?

Avatar 10:35pm Cp304:

that's too bad Franco, but interesting
Avatar 10:37pm Leland Meadows:

Well, that story makes complete sense to me!
Avatar 10:38pm Mr Fab:

I have that album too Franco, as well as several other Ruth Welcome albums. You've heard of guitar heroes? She's a zither-hero. Which should be a hit video game.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm coelacanth∅:

i quite like this album cover
Avatar 10:39pm Mr Fab:

That was like if Charles Bukowski wrote for romance pulps - it appeared to pretty much be about a horse race.
Avatar 10:41pm Leland Meadows:

That's about as funky as we will get here, the Tony Mottola bass breakdown lovers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm Candelarba:

If you get any more funky you'll have to bathe in some poo puree
Avatar 10:42pm Franco Twinkie:

Love Story Magazine, Ha! At a street vendor stand in front of a church in Rome I found a VHS tape that had a naked woman and a donkey in a heart frame on the box, I was tempted but thought about going through customs and put it down. Sure enough, coming home my backpack was dismantled by the goons in customs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43pm coelacanth∅:

ah, mon cherie i love it when you speak french
Avatar 10:43pm Constance De Witt:

Hey everyone
Avatar 10:49pm Franco Twinkie:

This actually happened to a friend of mine in India. She was by herself staying someplace and the woman running the place brought in a TV on a trolley and a tape of a woman having sex with a pig. She also said she had to take a shit on a oven pan through a hole in the floor, and a man came to pick it up in the morning in a wagon full of shit.

Be sure to shake the scorpions out of your shoes. They are indifferent to the fiery intensity of your love. And the hotel cleaning staff care even less. Love is on its own.
