― Ernest Hemingway

“The smallest feline is a masterpiece.”

Disregard dumb "look like humans" lists, this is THE human, looks familiar, don't you think? It could be your buddy, neighbor, local youth, ancestor, grandpa, grandpa's brother, your brother, even father. He's many people to everybody. To me, he bears resemblance to Anton Chekhov & Frank Zappa:

RR, what your cat really reminded me of was this, posted long ago on the now-defunct Capitol BB MB. Regrettably it's the spitting image of a colleague's then boyfriend, whom I'd met at a work get-together at the time:

Regrettably in this case means it's rather unfortunate
Ha! What's the difference? Idk, it doesn't seem big deal that some random guy - colleague's boyfriend! - looks like ugly dogman. Why care?

That's not a photoshopped image?
No - it's cat breed that's mixture of 2 pure breeds, hence the weirdness. The dog is clearly photoshopped. & why regret? It's not your boyfriend.

3D Btw, to mention my favorite show again, both Dali & Zappa guested in "What's My Line?". Type "what's my line [name]".

Regrettably in this case means it's rather unfortunate----that's all. No, it's not my boyfriend----it's not even my dog. Grin

This will cheer up everybody Cheesy

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGb84-nd4fw

I found what songs these people sing (google help)...BUT, the guy at 1:11, what's the problem with the way he says words? Is it even English? I could not decipher what the hell he sings. Can kind creature identify it? Right after that "mushmouth" chap, the lady at 1:45 plays piano & sings really nice tune. I'd like to know, it seems like piano standard. At 2:48, if the bed-ridden girl didn't laugh, I could hear words & find what she sings. Maybe smb. with super-sharp ears can get thru noisy laughter & hear them?

The bloke at 1:11 is trying, deperately, to sing "The Story of the Impossible". I can recognize bits and pieces but it's an unholy muddle. Here are the complete lyrics:

"Whatever happened to the great escape
The finest enemy.
Crafted with pride by monsters on the train.
The world is great to suckers

"We have the story of the impossible
A tale passed on so frail
One of make-belief
Maybe impossible to achieve
And really close

"Who sew the lion's hungry in the cage
With the confidance of a clown
The little man who rises on the stage
As he falls without a safety net

"We have the story of the impossible
A tale passed on so frail.
One of make-belief
Maybe impossible to achieve
And really close

"Whatever happened to the great escape
And all the plans we make
Crafted with pride by Monsters on the train.
The world is great to suckers.

"We have the story of the impossible
A tale passed on so frail.
One of make-belief
Maybe impossible to achieve
But oh so close"

This is the original by Peter Von Poehl:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdtVNxSPyws

The tune at 1:45 is "Edelweiss" from The Sound of Music:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bL2BCiFkTk

And for piano: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MUzX4tTy7FM

I can't make head or tail of what Laughing Girl is singing----maybe it'll come to me...

Hey thanks to quick reply! Well done. Thumbs Up I'm glad to find that my ears hear well: you too say it's "unholy muddle". There's many synonyms to "young boy", thanks to mention "bloke".

Did any cat fans, this thread attendees see "Street Cat Named Bob"? It's about real people - busker James Bowen & cat. I managed to download it recently, after many tries - liked it! Stars Luke Treadaway as Bowen. Cat Bob as Bob the Cat. What to expect? Cat close-ups from every angle Smiley (you'll be sitting with big smile looking at Bob's cute face), "people thru cat's eyes" camera work, cameo by real Bowen at the book signing at the end, rolling titles with picture slideshow with Bob & him, sweet elderly lady knitting tiny cat scarf (2 patterns). Bottom line: the must-see.

Last night, with the dog at my feet and Mr Fuzzy purring on my lap, I watched Carole King perform Tapestry at Hyde Park. At one point she stood up and said "This is what 74 looks like." She looked good and sounded great.
 following this was the Moody Blues performing some hits, then the whole of Days of Future Passed. I was trying to harmonize but sounded awful; thankfully kitty didn't attack me!
Maybe he fell asleep. :D Thanks to posting here, Liz. Smiley
