Fiddle? Oct 12, 2020

Is this fiddle material, Alexandra? It was played every night at 8 pm during the lockdown applause for most of March, April and May. It seemed to be coming from the next block along. There were a couple of young girls down a bit on the opposite side of the street who weren't there at the beginning of lockdown, but after a while they were always waiting on the balcony at five minutes to eight for the dance music to start. Also much easier to dance to than La Macarena, without making a fool of you... See more

A fiddle would indeed work better than bagpipes Oct 12, 2020

My apologies, I was unaware of the connection between this song and the role it's played in boosting morale. Great idea! As far as I know we don't have such an anthem in Canada. It would be nice to think we don't need one but the angle of the curve seems to be indicating otherwise.

Yes, a fiddle would work quite well, you could play chords during the chorus, and perhaps a solo break here and there where a guitar would normally do that. Here's an example of fiddles incorporated nicely into a multi-piece band, playing an anthem-type tune, starting at 5:45 at the following link:

Yes, more CanCon (Canadian content)!

Home alone III (the Nespresso Scenario) Oct 13, 2020

"So”, I resumed, “let’s see if we can’t solve a few problems for the President of the United States of America.”

He raised a hand. “Great.”

“Yes, right, now what I was thinking was …”

“No, I mean Great as in the President of the United States of Great America. We’re gonna change the name of the country. Make America great again and all that, you know.”

"So”, I resumed, “let’s see if we can’t solve a few problems for the President of the United States of America.”

He raised a hand. “Great.”

“Yes, right, now what I was thinking was …”

“No, I mean Great as in the President of the United States of Great America. We’re gonna change the name of the country. Make America great again and all that, you know.”

Ah. The Offalburger comment that hadn’t rung true before was dawning on me now ...

“I see.” I thought about it. “Might be better as the Great United States of America. Flows better, I think.”

But he shook his head. “Nope. We did consider that. Or Offalskoffer did. It was his idea. If we call it the Great United States of America, that would make me POTGUS, and POTGUS sounds like you’re cooking it for Thanksgiving, so it’s gonna be the United States of Great America. Like Johnson’s Great Britain in London, England.”

“It does sound logical,” I agreed. “Although, with all the unrest recently it’s not so much making America great again as breaking American pate again.”

He slumped back in his chair in despondency again. "Yep, depressing all right, all the rioting recently. And then there's Mel. What can I do? I want to get her alone and just talk to her, but she just tosses her head all the time, and I don’t know how to approach her anymore.”

Do you know, as he got weaker, I got stronger. I could feel a strange kind of boldness and arrogance coming on, like the contact was allowing me to soak up all that Trumpishness. As I watched him bow his head and slap the desk, I knew it was time to grasp the situation with both hands:

“Don,” I said firmly, “you’ve come to the right address, because I’ve fooled a few women in my time.” I grimaced. “OK, OK, more than a few have fooled me too, and every last one of them rumbled me in the end, but in the short to medium term, mostly the short, I know what I’m doing here.”

I wrinkled my brow and thought hard:

“It’s coming to me now … right, now, you’ve got to make preparations for this, Donald. Make sure, yes, make sure you’re in the Oval Office, just the two of you, that’s important. And … this is something Offalskoffer or someone can sort out for you - you have to have a special switch or something on the desk, so that you can call up a special song for this, and the song is How you like me now? By an outfit called The Heavy. Has to be ready to play the second you throw the switch, got it?”

He nodded up and down, open-mouthed. Bloody Nora, I was getting into this, and no mistake:

“… but first, talk to her, you say you have to talk to her, first you have to talk, so, let’s see, let’s see, talk to her, talk, yes, talk the talk, so … you want to get her on side right away next time you’re alone, and yes, oh yes, I see it all now.”

I was looking off to the side for inspiration, but I could see him edging forward in his seat, reaching for pen and paper.

“So you want to get her smiling, smiling, smile, yes, smile, that’s crucial, so you could start off with something like, er, let’s see if I’ve got this right, yes, so you’re both standing by the desk in the office, and you say “Mel”, and you stand there and put your hands ever so gently and tenderly on her shoulders, and then you say …” (how the hell did it go, I wondered, oh yes, got it …): “Smile, an everlasting smile, a smile can bring you near to me …””

I looked up, and he was busy writing.

“Then you go on with, er, “Don’t ever let me find you down, … “‘cos that would bring a tear to me.” Yes, and it rhymes, too, so that’s good. Right, and, and then …” … “Mel, this world has lost its glory, let’s start a brand new story now, … my love”, erm, and then “Right now, there’ll be no other time”, mm, “and I can show you how, my love …”

Still busy writing, nodding, tongue out the side of his mouth. It was going better than I’d hoped.

I went on talking like a man possessed. “And then … “Talk in everlasting words, and dedicate them all to me” … yes, and then it’s “And I will give you all my life. I’m here if you should call to me.”

“And then you just take her in your arms, your strong, manly, presidential arms, and say, “Melania, Mel, you think that I don’t even mean a single word I say. It’s only words. But words are all I have, to, er, take your heart away.” How we doing, Don?”

Bloody hell, I was even beginning to talk like him …

“Hey, that’s A-OK, man. That’ll go down a …”

“Just a minute, just a second, there’s more, you’ve just said you had Words, so you have to follow through with more Words.” God, I was definitely warming to it now. What the hell was the matter with me? I’d created a monster. “Then, then you move in softly, and you kind of tilt her down a little over the desk, you know, in that kind of swooning move the bloke does with the girl during a tango (I curved my hands and leaned to one side to illustrate), hold her there so her face is inches from yours, look straight into her eyes and say very calmly and firmly, “You are the First Lady. And I am The Man. Whenever you reach for me, er, I’ll do all that I can. We’re heading … yes, we’re heading for something, er, somewhere that I’ve never been. Sometimes I am frightened, but, mm, I am ready to learn … of The Power of Love.” “And say it like that, too, The Power of Love, in capitals,” I added.

“Capitals? How the hecking heck can I say it …. ah, hey, joke, right, man?”

“Sorry, yes,” I apologised. “It’s a thing I have. Can’t help it.”

“Way to go!” he enthused. “The Power of Love. Right on!”

At that point I remembered just whom I was talking to. “You could swap that last bit for “The Love of Power” if you like, too. Kind of fits the situation, if you don’t mind me saying so. The downside is that it files away most of that romantic edge.”

“And so,” I went on eagerly, “picture the scene, Don, picture the scene as one of the most powerful men in the entire world (and then, because I could see the beginnings of a scowl there) … THE most powerful man in the entire world, I mean, holding the First Lady, a beautiful former model, over a desk at the White House, reaches over and throws that music switch.”

“Got it, got it, man. And then? What do I do then?”

“Then? Then? Then, Don, there would be what George Clooney would call a Nespresso Moment.”

He shook his head. “Don’t follow you there. Nespresso Moment?”

“What that means, Don, and pardon my French, is that you then proceed to roger her six ways from Sunday. What else?”

Phew. I was breathing a little heavily by now. Looking up, I could see he was too. Had I gone too far? Would the next sounds I heard be a sudden roar of engines outside the building, reducing to the dull monotone fla-fla-fla-fla-fla-fla-fla of the blades of a helicopter hovering in mid-air, the smashing of glass as two Seals in full combat gear, faces smeared in animal droppings and nostrils still eagerly flared even after all these years with the smell of Bin Laden’s blood, came crashing through the window, dropping to the ground and rolling, whilst another two blew open the front door in a minutely planned two-pronged attack?

I wasn’t scared for myself, though. It was the Basques I was worried about. I could just see them, pressed up against the wall, screaming: “We know what you’re here for, so just take it, take it, will you, and leave us be! But you’ll have to tie up the fish pan on the stove with cord and take the cod as-is, because bacalao a la vizcaína and tupperware just don’t mix. It’s the tomato, don’t you get it? Hake in green parsley and garlic sauce is fine, you can do what you like with it, with or without the clams, but tell the pilot to look sharp, because either of them start to go off at altitudes of over five hundred feet …”

What is it with the Basques? Why does it all relate to food? You say Good morning, and they say Ah! Nothing like our little green Gernika peppers. You ask What time is it, and they say I’ll stick my neck out for Tolosa beans against all comers. You say Better get going for my appointment with the doctor, and they say Baby squid should always be cooked gently, never rushed. And if it’s not food, there they are, chopping away with an axe at the huge log of wood they’re standing on, or sawing an even huger log between two of them back and forth, or lifting 300+ kg stones up and down, or standing on a stage, hands in pockets, singing out their amusing spontaneous “bertso” rhymes in Euskera.

But it was just a momentary picture going through my mind, as I bowed my head, expecting the worst. When I looked up, the President was sitting there staring at me, drumming the desk with those big fingers. Finally he spoke. Just one word:

“Roger …”

Well, I knew he’d understood, but I babbled anyway:

“Yes, it might not be used much Stateside, the verb to roger, but it’s rather popular where I come from. It … it means …”

He cut me off right away. Jaw set and raising up that arrogant chin of his, you know the way he does:

“Oh, I know what roger means, pal.” He paused.

I half-turned in my chair to look at the window behind me. “Any second now,” I thought. Then he spoke again:

“But it means something else too, doesn’t it?”

My brow furrowed. “Er, … something else?”

“Sure it does.” There was a twinkle in his eye now. “It means, like, “OK”, “over and out”. Understood. Roger. I get it, I get it. You’re on the team, pal. You’re so on the team. You. Are. So. On. The. Team. I got this, I do. Yowser! I done got it for sure, I’ll tell the world. I know what I have to do about that now. So what can we do about these darned elections ...?”

... consuelo de tontos.

As they say. It's always rather comforting but idiotic to find out that someone's in the same plight as you. And it looks like that Second Wave is rising up in France, the UK, Portugal, Germany, the Netherlands ... everywhere. So that's a very, very, very small hooray.

I'm getting mighty tired of the sea of face masks, even though, like most people here, I probably spend much less time than others in Bilbao out and about seeing all those masks.

I'm getting mighty tired of the sea of face masks, even though, like most people here, I probably spend much less time than others in Bilbao out and about seeing all those masks. On the other hand, that could be the reason I notice them much more, and if I were taking the metro and doing a lot of walking around, I would get so used to them I wouldn't even notice. Like in the Blues Brothers film, when two or three inner-city trains roar past in quick succession outside the miserable Chicago bedsit Elwood Blues brings his brother Jake to when he gets out of prison, and the entire bedsit shudders:

Jake: "So how often does the train go past?"
Elwood: "So often you won't even notice."

Scaled-down version of the "Hispanidad" public holiday yesterday - a mini military parade in Madrid with the King and Queen and daughters in attendance. Plus a motley crew on the sidelines heckling against Sánchez and Co. And a rather embarrassing flyover at the event by a row of air force fighter planes, with vapour trails in the colours of the Spanish flag, except that one of them was trailing white vapour instead of yellow, which spoiled it a little. I also saw on TV that a soldier parachuted into the square too, but smashed into a tree on the way down. Not sure now if that was yesterday, or footage from last year. Last year's parade, though, definitely featured another mishap - another paratrooper's initially heroic descent with flags and all, which started off gloriously, but finished ingloriously. Still, they did applaud him last year:

... And so I turned my mind to helping POTUS out with his re-election. Still and all, I had to admit it wasn’t looking good for him:

“It’s a toughie, Mr Trump. Plus they’re wondering about your health now, whether you’re up to the job.”

That elicited a bitter laugh.

“Well, that one backfired on me for sure. Know what? I don’t even have the bug. Neither does Mel. I never did. Neither did she. Fake noos,” he guffawed, “only it didn’t work.”

The things you hear about direct from the shadowy corridors of power. My quizzical look told him some kind of explanation was required:

“It was a PR thing. It was looking too much like Slimy Joe might have a chance of slithering his way into the presidency with that Camel woman. Well, she’s a capable girl all right, I must say. Dangerously capable. Especially when you line her up against my Mikey. Little Mike’s all I’ve got, but what can I say, he’s a bit of a Boy Scout. No backbone,” he added, rolling his eyes.

“So one of the brainstormers came up with the Covid scenario. We leak some terrible news. The stricken President, get it? The stricken First Lady. Both of them stricken. A whole lot of strickening going on. Then they spin all the heroic guff about me staying at the helm of the nation despite serious illness, right before the elections. Remember that squad of doctors reporting on me? Only one of them was actually a doctor, the one at the front, so he could do the medical blurb, but the rest were all actors. Clint Eastwood rounded them up for me, because I can count on Clint. Now there’s an all-American guy. A patriot. You can’t ask the likes of moody old De Niro or that un-American traitor Clooney, of course. Or Martin Sheen either.”

“Oh, most especially not Martin Sheen,” I agreed. “They say he got so into playing a Democrat President in The West Wing he got to thinking he WAS the President. It’s understandable – you have the best suit during filming, you have the best lines, the best bubbly, the best of everything - you walk in on set, all the other actors and actresses stand up and says Good morning, Mr President; you walk out, everyone stands up and says Good night, Mr President; you give somebody something - even if it’s the empty mug of coffee he brought you half an hour ago for him to take it away again like the skivvy he is - they say Thank you, Mr President; or somebody gives you something, and even then they say This is my way of saying thank you, Mr President, for taking care of my country, your country and our country; you’re looking downhearted, your PA says Don’t worry, Mr President, remember that the day is darkest before the dawn; you’re fretting about the reaction of the Commies, and your Chief of Staff says, Mr President, that guy might be the Commies’ President, but that don’t mean no more’n a hill of beans to us, Mr President, because, hot diggity, Mr President Sir, you’re OUR President, Sir, and doggone it, Sir, that’s all that matters to us, Mr President, Sir. Then Martin walks off set at the end of the day, slips on a dog turd in the street, gets shouted at by a bag woman, has to slum it home in the shitty stench of a smelly subway with the rest of them, and on the way his wife rings to tell him Charlie’s been a prat again, and she’s sending him back into detox. But most of the time Sheen thought he actually was POTUS, and he ended up with the delusion that nobody could do it better than him, especially a Republican President, and most especially … “ I trailed off as I saw a shadow pass over his face. His jaw rose a little, but it was only a kind of knee-jerk reaction with him, hearing something he didn’t like, and that jaw went straight down again, he stared at me, and then exhaled slowly and sadly.

“Yes, you can say it, it’s OK. Especially the likes of me, right? Yep, for sure. And that’s why I thought I could get in a little edge with the fake virus thing.”

I decided to give him a little reality shot.

“The thing is, Don,” I said slowly, “someone who pooh-poohed the virus for so long isn’t about to garner much of that hero worship now he’s got it himself. Even though he hasn’t got it. Maybe it’s time for a little introspection on your part, Don. And if you don’t know what introspection is, then maybe it’s time to take a long hard look at yourself.”

He gave a wry smile and nodded (well, that one fell flat, didn’t it? …). “Yep, I’m against the ropes all right. It’s kind of a spiral. It all started with my arrogance and my attitude to women, all the talk about the women I’ve been with, too. I could handle that. Got a little stormy a while back there, but most of that’s water under the bridge now.”

I had to smile. “Stormy?” I thought. “I heard he got more than a little Stormy. The way I heard it, he got all of her. Several times.” But I thought I’d let that one go …

He was still musing.

“I suppose you could say I paid the price for that (hmm, yes you did, about 130 grand, wasn’t it?), but nowadays they’re all on my back about police brutality against negroes, this virus and my taxes, or lack of them. I have the charisma, but it’s a kind of negative charisma sometimes, and I can feel it fading. If I was a bit younger, if we were living in different times, if I had broad popular support in times of change. Like Kennedy, you know ...”

Suddenly I could feel something stirring in my brain. The hair on the back of my neck began to rise. Could it be …? Surely not. Not after all these years. I stretched my neck up and rolled my head around.

“What … did you just say, Don?”

“I said, like Kennedy, I wish I could be like Kennedy. He was a Democrat, sure, but if only I could be like him. Yeah, like Kennedy. Say, you OK over there?”

“Don’t worry, Mr President,” I said, breathing hard. “Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.”

I could see him leaning forward. “What the hell’s gotten into you? All I said was like Kennedy.”

“Yes,” I finally growled. “Oh, yes indeed. Like Kennedy. Like John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Like JFK ...”

And just like that, the wavies were back:

Thanks for that spelling correction, Alexandra. This time it did come up in the spell check, but since I had no idea I just let it pass. Maybe I should have used "tagnabbit" instead.

As for grassy knoll duty, Chris, I'll keep you posted. Keep your powder dry.
