    Maleth:The Venitian Carnival is quite distinctive and maybe somber at times, but the costumes fit in so well with the ambiance and creates a wonderful experience.
    Yes, it's very beautiful, but definitely restrained. As a city Venice has been seen by certain authors as having a certain "sadness" to it, but given enough cold and rain, any city can seem "sad", not to mention the deterioration that has taken place over the centuries. That's not how I think of it, though. Like a lot of other Italian cities it spells "romance" to me. This is my favorite song about Venice. My parents used to dance so beautifully to it.


    Maleth:That dosent look so small Angela, very nice floats actually, its similar in Style with the local one and that of Acireale in Sicily
    I suppose I meant less well known than Venice or Brazil and so fewer tourists rather than "smaller". It's actually quite large...people spend all year preparing the floats. Yes, it's similar to those for which you provided a link. All of them are a far cry from Brazil or Mardi Gras in New Orleans, which as I've posted a couple of times before I absolutely loathed! Despite the thousands year old connection of Italians and wine, had I been around in 1920s America I probably would have voted for prohibition. Yes, yes, I know it didn't work!

    Music from Mardi Gras:

    Thank you for the links, very interesting, enjoyed that haha. I have read a little about the ancient Carnival which some of it can also be attributed to pre Chirstian era in some instances. Ancient carnival was more of full participation from the people without having much audience to watch a particular spectacle. Different regions develop their own themes. Though I agree with you with the general folly and shock effect. We have a different and spontaneous Carnival which is prefered with the younger generations on the Island of Gozo that probably is more authentic in style compared to the floats and parades to the Valletta one.

    Perhaps the sacrifices so far have not been acceptable?

    Here, instead, the Great Mother is happier.

    This was playing in MACY'S. "Toto, I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore."

    A few songs later, a more modern "Latino" song apparently:

    I think you've identified the problem, Angela. I should have been sacrificing daffodils instead of snowdrops. I probably just made things worse.

    I'm not familiar with either of those artists but they do seem like good representatives of the Goddess of Spring.

    Indeed.

    Gloria Estefan, the first one, came on the scene as part of a group called the Miami Sound Machine that had a lot of hits in the 80's. The original members were all Cuban born Cuban Americans. I guess you could say their music was Latin American influenced. Their big hits were in English, but they also did some Spanish language songs. They were pretty popular at the time for party or dance music, but even then it would never have been played in a department store, at least not in the northeastern U.S.! South Florida is another world. I never heard the second woman until just recently, again in a store. She's apparently "big" right now in the Latin music world.

    This was also a hit for them:

    I love listening to music from the past. It's almost like a portal to simpler days.

    No one knows of poor Amie Comeaux. A Cajun country musician.



    Prettiest eyes I've ever seen. And her blonde hair.

    Unfortunately she died in a car accident in December 1997 before her career really took off.

    She may have been a distant cousin of mine. ^^

    What a lovely song...Sometimes I feel as if I would like to be a stolen child too.

    I'll add it to my fantasy life...along with the absconding wife and mother.

    Did you ever see the movie Bread and Tulips? There's an English subtitled version. It's about an un-appreciated Italian wife and mother left at a highway rest stop who decides to run away to Venice. It's pretty amusing and rather sweet, if a little (or a lot) predictable.

    Another movie for me to look for. As for the video, when I tried to play it I got a note that the uploader hasn't made it available in my country. One of the problems of living in a remote northern country.

    I heard these two songs, among many, at a 60th wedding anniversary party this weekend. The couple is blessed not only in the longevity of their relationship, but in the quality of it. I thought the songs were appropriate to post in light of some of our recent discussions.

    Haven't heard this one since I was a kid. 1995 was a good year.

    nobody likes our weird Cajun French music it seems ... just recently discovered this pre-WWII stuff ... it's really intriguing stuff.

    For anyone stressed out by our recent discussions, I recommend a little Johan Pachelbel. It always works for me...
