Thanks. I'm used to it being cursive (translit. "kursiv"). Where you live you say "italics". It's fine. Misunderstandings take place.

Yet the film internationally - "Sorcerer's Stone". Strange. What do you think about "coffee table books"? Many say it's useless - pics with minimal to zilch written info, mentioning "too heavy to carry".

It suits this thread. Thanks. Incidentally, that band never been favorite. I find their songs really abrasive, ear-attacking, singer's voice very not my cup of tea.

I said book titles in cursive ("The Great Gatsby" & "Little Women"). Don't use it, folks. Smiley If you graciously listen to this humble plea, I shall try not to use "text speak" (c) sth. & smb. that lotta people said in pm's & publicly over years that it really annoyed/s them big time. Deally deal? Wink

To rephrase previous question - how can I be sure that, when I'm in U.S. book shop, I picked book without changes? Does it point to it in books - "This is book without changes, the way the writer intended it to be written as"? Or shall I wade thru many editions, sit down & read each to find out? Why not make it easy to readers & simply leave books as they are? Sorry but it's highly ridiculous to change it due to people not being familiar with slangs. Now what kinda reason it is really? Gee wilkers. So, people don't know what's "bilge" when Jo March repeats it. &? It's easy to get by context what she says, i.e. same as "damn" / "rubbish"/ b-word/ s-word.

Ha yes, suspected that's why the namecheck. Didn't work, heh. Idk, say, 80% famous people. :D Anyhoo, what's really excellent about it, can't you tell?

Annoying. Leave the book AS IS. I'm extremely against this revisionism. Do they even indicate the changes made that I pick the real deal written by writer?

NB This cursive book title stylizing really is sickening. Cheesy

I saw a TV adaptation of this (the one with Colin Firth).
Never seen it. What's it like? I see the cast includes Joanna David who played Girl in "Rebecca", TV mini-series with great Jeremy Brett. Literally she's single name I recognize in that cast.

Also, what's the difference which edition? Content's the same, yes? Case would be made if it's different translations we talked here.

This thread fits General Music. Mods, combine it with thread linked by Rocker. Thanks in advance.

Revisiting this page to tell it stays big favorite. I'm glad to see that the video been saved in flash drive I retrieved today. Really cool visuals, like 5D.  It would be cool if in big shopping houses they played this song loud & it'd give really cool shopping time adding cool frightful scenery whilst walking in it. People who didn't listen to it & see - listen to it & see, by any means, even when the ears disobey to listen to it & eyes to see it. You'll enjoy.

You mean SBonilla's ava's "popular album"? By who?
9  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: The Beach Boys on SiriusXM 2019 on: May 18, 2019, 04:48:24 PM
It would be bad decision to get channel permanent. The BBs this time could be right. Tbh, I wish they don't repeat it this year. Besides, I can't even access it, Sirius is U.S. station.

Either film listed by either is boring.
Edit: Except maybe "Twist & Shout"/ Beatles lipsync scene & everybody dances in the Ferris film.

2 SBonilla - what's in the ava image? It says, if the eyes see it well, "caca de la uaca". Thanks in advance.

Quarantine here means when schools shut down, 1-9 grade kids don't attend it few weeks due to winter degrees starting with -45 C & due to illness (typically serious flu wave). What does it mean towards pets?
13  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Anyone here who can draw caricatures? on: May 17, 2019, 06:27:54 AM
Micha can't draw, didn't post in years.
Ditto dellydel.
pixletwin will not be good help either.
Not sure about Emdeeh & rab2591.
Anyhoo, I did send Rocker message hour back. Check inbox.

Ta, good tips. Will fly with cat companion. Didn't check if it's OK to do but, since people travel with their Yorkshire terriers & stuff, cats should too. If cats disallowed, it'd be "pet discrimination".
15  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: RIP Doris Day on: May 14, 2019, 06:16:39 PM
I honestly genuinely meant that Bruce must have been saddened by the passing of Doris, blimey - After all he must have had an awful lot of contact through the years with his lengthy association with her son Terry Melcher and also not withstanding his very successful compilation of Doris out takes a few years ago AND the fact that they have been near neighbours in Carmel SO YES he would have been saddened at the news
I got it at face value, that you genuinely meant Bruce will be sad, not as some elaborate hint at "surfing Doris Days" phrase which didn't even match what you said, else you'd say it in joking manner. Thanks to confirm I got it right, Mr. Dean.

Re: Doris cutting 2 yrs to seem young - actually, it isn't the case:

Quote
For most of her life, Day reportedly believed she had been born in 1924 and reported her age accordingly; it was not until her 95th birthday when the Associated Press found her birth certificate, showing a 1922 date of birth that she learned otherwise.

Everybody says San Fran is beautiful. You now say it - thanks! Which sightseeings you advise to visit in it?

Yes, I read about it. Here's lovely info about shop cats in SF :D: https://medium.com/@chrisarvin/the-beloved-store-cats-of-san-francisco-992bebda45ce
17  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: RIP Doris Day on: May 14, 2019, 02:33:32 AM
I didn't find Mr. Dean's reply cruel. Care to explain?

Btw, when I read she passed at 97, I calculated it should be 95 & been thinking "Is 97 typo?". Since her birth year previously stated clearly "1924". But now, it says "1922" huh? Bizarre.
18  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: So what did we all do today? on: May 13, 2019, 04:46:05 PM
SF. L.A. isn't in N. CA.

Like I said, few weeks. 2, maybe 3. What do you mean by "tourist traps"? I've not game plan yet but decided to visit less banal & uber-popular with tourists places. I shall buy useful house goods, food (various chocolates they don't sell here, chocolate chip cookies, cat food), cat items, souvenirs, greeting cards & stuff.
You been in SF?
19  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: So what did we all do today? on: May 13, 2019, 08:03:12 AM
Yes, saved money since 2012 to travel to U.S. Pity the flight's really lengthy. Thing I like about flying by plane is take-off & landing when you get dizzy, ears get deaf & cool noises surround. Why you ask - wanna give me free few weeks' stay in your house? :D That would be cool, wouldn't it? But, I'm going to book the cheap hotel/ inn room. Like tourists do.

"Retrousse Profile In The Kitchen Sink Reflection" by Contaminated Tap (chromatic)
"Draped" by Bulki & Pelmeni (major)
"Who Asks? Yoda" by Kasha Malashka (melodic)

Ta. Smb. else sings the song, looks like.
22  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: So what did we all do today? on: May 13, 2019, 04:49:59 AM
Well won't you tell almond flour's U.S. price? I'm going to visit it this summer, you see.

Funny you mention cauliflower - recently read page "pizza based at cauliflower". Meh. Instead liked the page "pizza dip" - cook any sauce to dip mini plain croissants into it.

Hello. Woodstock can draw, maybe try to ask him: http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php?action=profile;u=5792

This is really interesting read. Thanks to guitarfool & Ian! I didn't even suspect that BBs been at frequent demand by that time when they're deemed "unhip". Pity it seems the shows with BBs didn't survive. Would be especially interesting to see them at Joey Bishop. He's really funny as guest panelist in What's My Line?.

Agree.
