CAROLINA CAROL BELA

CAROLINA CAROL BELA by Toquinho and Jorge Ben.

Let's ease into Monday shall we? I haven't posted anything from Brazil in awhile, and I feel bad for that. Yes, it's in a different language, but (to overgeneralize wildly) Brazilian music is some of the sweetest, most accessible music in the world.

Carolina Carol Bela is sweet and accessible indeed. Toquinho isn't exactly an obscure figure, but nothing compared to Jorge Ben, whom even us poor Okies have heard of! I have copies of the song on three different albums/compilations, and it's well enough known to have a big D&B single built around it, and a Youtube video! So I'm not giving you anything totally rare (that will come later in the week), but something you can listen to and enjoy any time.

LISTEN.

With the remains of that pile at the curb, it seems someone is trying to honor your blog with a truck. A good sports blog, albeit a bit risque.. http://withleather.com/post.phtml?pk=4151

Gotta be glad the Sooners won despite playing badly, on the road, in a trap game, and 40% of the top ten losing, blah blah blah blah BLAH! I just wish Auburn had made it 50% on the road v the less smiles hillbilly cajuns...

The pile is still there? that's a bummer. True we won but seems we got pushed back a bit in the polls for not putting up 50.

The last two bundles are at the curb and should be picked up today. It does seem as though we got treated harshly for winning not big enough. Bad news, bye week this week may treat us harshly again. OK, though, all we can do is take care of biness and hope for a breakthrough...
