what day is it? no, Willie's molie is well posted but I had quickly scanned these before and not done anything with them - it's hectic here, the credit crunch effect!
the nude didn't scan well - I got some new polychromos. got tired of the standard tin acid house assortment so went and got some individual colours, lots of greys, sanguine, and dull green. a much improved collection but downside is they don't scan so well.
I discovered that Hector Zazou has died (no, I didn't know who he was either - apparently the french's world music version of Paul Simon and Peter Gabriel). I also discovered that the Zazous were a post-war French youth cult, with a penchant for heavy outdoor clothes, big shoes, swing and bebop music, Clark Gable moustaches (women optional), and rolled-up umbrellas. Not only that but the delightfully named Edelweiss Piraten (pirates) were a pre-war youth cult evolved as a liberal alternative and in opposition to the strict conformity of the Hitler Youth. Sadly, they were severely persecuted in turn by the Third Reich and then the Soviet victors. The Piraten liked fresh air, mixed company, skimpy shorts and camp-fire music. Don't say Moleskine Exchange isn't educational! ha ha.
footnote: those readers thinking of forming bands might want to know that The Edelweiss Pirates has been used for three separate bands already but, as far as I know, The Zazous is still up for grabs!
