Отлично, константин, а т. др. проч. шведы – и не!

 

B.

Vita Sackville-West was married for 5 years and was a mother to 2 sons, when in April 1918 she suddenly fell passionately in love with seductive Violet Keppel (later Trefusis), a friend she knew since her 12 and Violet’s – 10yo. Violet was an older daughter of Alice Keppel, last official royal mistress of Edward VII* – not by her husband, The Hon. George Keppel, but by one of her earlier lovers, Ernest Beckett. 

Alice’s younger daughter, Sonia Rosemary Keppel, is the maternal grandmother of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall – whose life-long labors culminated in turning Prince of Wales from lover to a husband. Camilla attended today’s royal wedding ceremony for Prince Harry and his snowy-white-gowned bride: divorced, formerly-Jewish-by-marriage, mulatto American movie actress Megan Markle, –  wearing  a hat which one of the internet wits judged “inspired by The destruction of the Death Star…but pink”. Oh travesty!

Пшеминело з вятром/Gone with the wind:
Lwov and Warsawa nightlife and cabaret of 1920-30th. Note, more than half of the artists – singers, lyricists, musicians, composers – were Jews.

[I’m in a Lwow-nostalgic mood. It happened before; it’ll pass.]

А ведь так и во враги нынешнего народа попасть можно: какой такой украинский Богдан с барабаном? И Логан какой-то неразьяснённый…не говоря уже о пиндосской Синтии – ишь, сам признался -любовь, говорит, моя! И фамилия-то подозрительная: Паперный. Не Бумажный! А также не Стеклянный, не Оловянный, не Деревянный и главное, не Ватный!

Берегите себя, Лёша, очень вас прошу.

Deep bow

Незнакомой читательнице, приславшей неожиданное письмецо с приятными словами: спасибо и глубокий реверанс. Лукреция сегодняшним вечером поёт для вас!
To a stranger-fan who sent me an email with unexpected praise: thank you. Lucrecia sings for you tonight!

Темы всё повторяются. Можно поставить эту песню (“песню”? неадекватное слово) в ряд к двум постам: этому. И ещё этому. Они все overlap.

За истекший период ничего НОВОГО плохого не произошло.
Зато нашёлся, по ссылке friends-of-friends, забавный ролик г-на П. Короленко, отлично иллюстрирующий данную серию. Применять в качестве рефрена к каждому посту.

In memory of Whitney

Только сейчас заметила @2:25 мин: она поёт где-то на крышах НЙ, может даже на 4th of July party, at a roof garden – за спиной знакомо-подсвеченные Empire-State и Chrysler. Это был первый (и самый лучший) её клип, кот. я видела – и мы были почти ровесницы…

RIP, sparkle.

Farewell, Barefoot Diva

If you write me letter,…
I will write you back
If you forget me,…
I will forget you…

Until the day…
You come back

On December 17, 2011, Cesária Évora died in São Vicente, in her native Cape Verde, from cardiorespiratory insufficiency and hypertension.

Her voice has been a source of [sometimes the only] consolation and encouragement for me in the last three years.  I have a separate “station” set on Pandora radio named after her, so every time the ugly reality strikes me anew I can escape to a healing all-knowing saudade of her voice…2 days ago, in the middle of a very stressful day, full of anxiety, I happened to stumble into a brief conversation with somebody who just went to a Pink Martini concert and by natural association I recalled Cesaria and how I missed my chance to hear her in concert at Beacon theater in NY. “Never say “never”, – said my interlocutor, -“next time you’ll be more lucky”.

Now there never be next time. Rest In Peace.
