Paulita
Suppose you said that shortly before Boca Jrs 3-1 defeat, was this a premonition somehow??????Speaky I think said he would be away in France for a few days but dont worry It will warm up soon

paulita said...

no voy a hacer declaraciones

:)

pipita said...

Paulita!! Come on, you cant even bring yourself to write in English... Okay, its clear that you are a true "hincha" and as such, your entitled to feel miserable...But, Im a true "hincha" as well, and look at my team's performance this year, yours at least is still in with a chance in both copa and clausura. What have things come to... Im consolating a bostera...Re-loco

paulita said...

hola pipita

your sympathy can't fool me, you sound perky...

pipita said...

Paulita, perky te voy a dar......

offsideintahiti said...

How fast can we fill this with a thousand comments?

offsideintahiti said...

I'd say, quickly enough, if we really get to work on it...

Ebren said...

I'll delete you, dog help me, I'll do it!

offsideintahiti said...

If you delete me, I'll go on strike. You know what happens, then.

paulita said...

what?

I go away for 2 seconds, because, really, what could possibly happen in 2 seconds?

everything. everything happens when you leave.

so close to meeting ZZ...

offsideintahiti said...

Don't worry, Paulita, nothing really happened. The whole of reality has just shifted five inches to the left of itself.

paulita said...

jean paul offside

rob smyth is talking galacticos and ZZ 'orgiastic football' in the other place.

offsideintahiti said...

Paulita, I'm not going on a blog where people call zz a show pony.

I think your purist friend might need rescuing. He seems to be lost in cyberspace and panicking too...

marcela said...

oh my dog!!

i've been living in the wrong planet for donkey's years!

i didn't know about ANY of this.

need a tonic to soothe my nerves.

paulita - me podríás haber avisado que tenías tu propio 'place' :)

offsideintahiti said...

Marcela,

I'd be glad to buy you a tonic. If only we had a taproom (or considering it's summer, a beer garden). I hope our favourite barman returns soon from his evangelical mission.

pipita said...

Paulita, may I??? Hi all, Im taking a rest from Marcelita's GU blog. Must confess the thread has gone a bit "funny" over there. I feel Ive made some of the most uninspiring comments since my relationship with GU blogging commenced

marcela said...

well, let's move the taproom here and to hell with it!!

i think pipita's cold because it's snowing over her chair. but it's clement enough over here, even possible to sit outside 'n all.

offy, since you're buying i'll have a double. whatever. pakalolo??

or do you call it d'herb these days?

only 983 to go :)

pipita said...

Marcela, "think pipita's cold because it's snowing over her chair." What you on about?? Confused me with Paulita by any chance??, or is this you getting muddled up with gender

marcela said...

yes. you're right. i confused you with paulita.
i'll try again.

marcela said...

i think paulita's cold because it's snowing over her chair.

marcela said...

22 down. 978 to go.

marcela said...

LOL

paulita said...

someone get marcela something to drink and stop counting

DoctorShoot said...

hmm
er..
tap a tap a tappy tap...
helloo
...

is this thing on?..

DoctorShoot said...

oooh look a jukeboxie thing..
let's try:

and I'll have a double jamaican overproof, two of those truffle chocolates and a nice creamy havana cigar over by the banana grove seats thanks...

Zeph said...

But where is Speaktruth? He was unhappy at being shut out of his Thread of a Thousand Posts, all the usual Pseuds taproom denizens have turned up here but he must be still wandering about out there somewhere...

Should a search party be sent out?

offside said...

Alas, poor speaktruth...

I shouldn't be making fun. He sounded genuinely distraught on Ebren's thread yesterday. I trust he'll find his way here eventually. I wonder how he'll react when he finds out that his cosy chat room has been turned into a Tango Taproom.

Paulita, what are you planning for entertainment here?

Zeph said...

This, maybe?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEe2j43X-Ms

offside said...

Zeph, that's lovely but I hope you're not planning to try anything like that with me. We'd be picking up pieces of cruciate ligaments off the floor before the music is over.

Speaktruth said...

Che Paulita

send me an email:

speaktruth001@yahoo.co.uk.

Zeph said...

Speaktruth, you got here! Perhaps the rest of us should clear off now and let Paulita have her thread back?

Offside: only in a parallel universe..

Speaktruth said...

Hola Zeph

No no.

For the greater good, this place should stay as it is.

Cant start making exclusion zones.

And I hate rules and restrictions :)

smoking bans and such like.

Zeph said...

Had no idea you guys were chatting away chez Paulita all this time, it's like suddenly finding out your favourite pub has another bar next door...

marcela said...

i'm pretty sure i saw my favourite sign hanging above the bar at this joint.

it reads:

this is a smoking zone. if your persist in non-smoking you may be required to leave

:)

che paulita... hope you're doing everything necessary to make our boy romi live up to expectations

here we go now... wey hey...

HighPlainsDrifter said...

STRANGER:
Well shucks y'all

hope y dont mind me bustin in here...

(Taking a swig of whiskey) To your feet ma'am. They're almost as big as your mouth.

BILLY BORDERS: Flea bitten range bums don't usually stop in Lago. Life here's a little too quick for them. Maybe you think you're fast enough to keep up with us, huh?

STRANGER: A lot faster than you'll ever live to be...

spits...
coughs....
looks around...

...these all your brothers and sisters then?..

DoctorShoot said...

DFrinkers hush,.. the piano stops, drifter leaps onto the bar:

"Here Chernobyl Prize for Splitting the Atom:

1.2.3.4.
Chernobyl Chernobyl
when will we ever dwell
freee from the smell of
extermination...
5.6.7.8.

Chernobyl Windscale
Chernobyl Chernobyl
sure no bull
sure no bell
saw no bell
heard no bell of warning
(except the one which are ringing now)
no bell
just the dawning of another deadly cloud.

Chernobyl Chernobyl
your three-mile cloud of death,
your rain of fear is the big first prize;
no surprise...

Sure no building will collapse
sure no building will be ciollapsed, but
no building
no buying will occur
after such a deadly Marilingerer reign;
after such a rain only hot rocks -
radiators for a coild planet.

Chernobyl Chernobyl Roxby Roxby
Nurrungar Pine Gap -
the Honeymoon is over -
Chernobyl is everywhere -
Shut down Roxby Downs..."

marcela said...

i may be working alone here... trying to make it to 1000. but i don't care.


paulita - sub 20; feelings?

Paulita said...

I never really asked for a place of my own, you know?

to host, so much pressure...

marcela

I'm not compromising my feelings with international football. for a while.
although, brazil's already been eliminated...

DoctorShoot said...

sorry Paulita, Marcela,..

have taken High Plains Drifter out and given him a good talking to in a dark alley...

Probably came into the wrong taproom...

I have put him on a train (along with Julio Baptista, Daniel Alves, (and Roberto Ayala) bound for...) no only joking sorry... unlucky Argentina unlucky... just one of those games where crossbars, the luck of own goals, and offsides seem to go against you for no good reason.

Zeph said...

Paulita, you must have been doing something right to get 1000+ posts on your other thread.

Or was it just that people wouldn't leave ? :)

Here's a nice song for bruised Argentina supporters...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLipHoBSbJY

DoctorShoot said...

...and of course the aussie socceroos just squeaked into the second round of the Asian Cup with a 4 - 0 win over Thailand...
Michael Beauchamp once, Mark Viduka twice and Harry Kewell once...

what a relief...

now we play Japan

marcela said...

ay paulita, paulita... all the things we don't ask for and get anyways.

where to start??

some good, some not so good.

your place is great.

it's not even too crowded, and the music - so far - seems ok.

here's one from the olden days, paulita.

doc might know it :)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6N5YmQWmfw

luckily those french geezers are off drinking togethr in the real world so we don't even have to down caipirinhas. fernet branca from everyone?

DoctorShoot said...

beautiful and stylish link Marcela...

my Spanish is woeful but I love the music...

hannibalbrooks said...

I couldn't fil to live up to my reputation by not sharing this little gem by the legendary Hank Jones with you all ...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04rox_89XxQ

This is what he used to do back in his youth ...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MVGxY-mnz4

marcela said...

doc, that's spinetta in 1983 playing one of his much much earlier songs - from a group he had called almendra.

i love the song, although it's kind of crass to say so.

girl, paper eyes
where are you going?
stay until dawn

girl, small feet
don't run any more
stay until dawn

and i dream a dream slowly
between my hands
until through the window
the sun comes up

girl, rayon skin
don't run anymore
your time is today

don't talk anymore, girl
heart of chalk
when everyone else sleeps
i'll steel a colour for you

...

it goes on.

a bit naff that badia, the tv presenter whose show he was on, kinda gets in the way of the tears and the little knot in my throat that was building up.

youtube's great. but not perfect.

marcela said...

wey hey.

sirol.

there IS light at the end of the tunnel.

will listen to your suggestions INMEDIATAMENTE!

but first mujst get a little more flaco spinetta off my chest:

singing at the presidential pink house more recently:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQ7ySR2s1VU&mode=related&search=

same song, different recording:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVwhbHMD2s0&mode=related&search=

DoctorShoot said...

hannibal
first link couldn't get the sound with it?? second link absolute cream... finest of the Prez, Hank and co... though the sound seemed to be off sync eg in drum solos but sweet listening...
I was a big MJQ fan back in the late 60s... how old am I!!??

Marcela
I must confess I don't mind the lyrics at all, and stealing colours from the rayon skinned girl with the heart of chalk has a certain tense beauty...
will have a listen to your other Spinetta links now...

DoctorShoot said...

Marcela

Luis Alberto maturing like a fine wine...
exquisite...

DoctorShoot said...

...and just for the sheer pleasure of it, and because you deserve it, one from the boy from Winnipeg:

mimi said...

Thanks for inviting me over, Doc. Why didn't I know you were all hanging out here? And so much to listen to, but now I have to go to work, and will return later.

marcela said...

lovely way to start the day, doc :)

nice end to yesterday with hb's hank jones, too...

i just nipped into youtube to find a clip of another old favourite from neil and stumbled upon this modern day wideo montage...

still relevant, after all these years

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HuTkmVYyyyE

hope to reconvene with yous all later.

have a peaceful day

Paulita said...

'Stop children, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down'

Back in 1998, during that summer's World Cup, I was the resident DJ in a quite famous Liverpool club/bar. This place wasn't merely very trendy, it was the epitome of hip, at that time. The club music style bible Mixmag had recently described it as 'legendary' and responsible for starting a revolution in bar and club culture that had been copied by lots of national chains. I had been there from the begining, 6 years earlier, and they were very heady days.

During the month long football festival in France, while other bars in the city and around the country were just begining to capitalise on the popular combination of football and club culture and accompanying it with the predictably ubiquitous soundtrack of 'Three Lions' and 'Vindaloo', I had put together a soundtrack of my own, having been combining big football matches with cool music for a few years already.

This is the song that will always remind me and perhaps anybody who did France '98 at Baa Bar of those halcyon days ...

Chuck D, step up to the mic and tell these people what time it is ... boyeeee!

Zeph said...

There's one thing I don't like about Pseudscorner. Just one thing. It's the fact that you can't put a direct link from a comment to Youtube. This copy-and-paste-into-another-tab thing just downright spoils my enjoyment:)

That last one was great, Hannibal! Theme song for Pseuds maybe? Working my way up through the other links later..

hannibalbrooks said...

zeph

The links thing is quite easy and quick ...
highlight link/copy/open new tab/highlight address bar in new tab,right click, paste/refresh page ... voila! ... it takes only a couple of seconds to do, are you sure that you aren't making it over complicated for yourself?

Not sure about a Pseuds theme but Public Enemy never forgot how to put together a great tune from a simple sample ... WORD!

Zeph said...

Hannibal, I'm just really lazy! The Hank Jones is wonderful by the way.

munni said...

marcela said...

re public enemy he got game:
loved it.

offside said...

Howdy,

lots of good music here, but is there anything to drink?

marcela said...

orsay - do you want to join my round of this?
http://www.agenciaelvigia.com.ar/mate1.jpg

offside said...

Yes, please, Marcela.

Thank Dog you're here. Paulita is neglecting her hosts, busy that she is debating Basile's tactics with Eric on that thread of yours.

!Salud!

Paulita said...

'neglecting hosts' he says...

like marcela isn't enjoying the homemade vainishas... or like I'm complaining about the mate stains on the tablecloth...

if only boris didn't like him so much...

marcela said...

uh, uh.
sorry you too. let the mate go a bit cold there... minot distraction.
all yours now.

basile tactics, you say? didn't know there was such a thing.

thought it was YOU offy who had bogarted the thread to discuss minutae with guest :(

haven't checked in for too long...

won't hear a word against paulita's hosting skills. she just let's everyone get on with their own thing.

don't know that we can allow her to control the juke box, though.

sumo, paulita? i mean they're ok. heroin is quite funny. but really, your response to el flaco is sumo?

offside said...

Vainishas? What's that? Why didn't I get any? Paulita, you're a very gracious host but if it wasn't for Marcela I would have died of thirst by now.

And Marcela, yes, I don't know what came over me. I'm usually the one teasing guest and drawing 5000 word posts out of him, but yesterday, somehow, he just got to me. Not enough coffee, probably.

marcela said...

vainillas.
paulita's just prnouncing it a la criosha.

hard to explain, really. like langue de chat, but fatter. drier. delicious. you should dunk them in hot chocolate for extra impact.

but it's approaching cocktail time, non?

offside said...

Those vainillas sound good.

I don't know about the cocktails, I'm only a customer here. Since my associate is gone... By the way, did greengrass really take Ingrid with him to Lapland?

marcela said...

greengrass is in lapland?!

here.
try this:

Paulita said...

marcela

I just don't let el flaco wander around when my bed's warm and the gate to the unconscious's still open. sumo for 7 AM, el flaco for 7 PM, especially:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSaob_Cdrdw

if this is the time when offside shows his loincloth, I'd better take boris away.

offside said...

Shame, those links don't work.

Lapland is what I heard on the gravepine but, for all I know, he could be in Bora Bora.

DoctorShoot said...

Hannibal
your 11.25 honourable link indeed and more power to your sword, I mean pen...

I think it had a chance for about three weeks and, though fun while it lasted, failed,.. but worth another chance one hopes...

marcela said...

jeeeeze, paulita...

i was undecided whether to post some pappo's blues for you, or ilya kuryaki y los valderramas.

i have opted for this instead:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRdOHfizYG8&mode=related&search=

for something completely differente :)

DoctorShoot said...

an Archie post from 17 years ago and made in hope, with walk ins from jim barnes, tim fin etc...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tjx7X35cMkA

hope springs eternal when the children come back...

marcela said...

wow, doc.

that kinda makes me want to try change the world.
and i am getting THIS close to believing all i we can hope for is improving our neighborhood :)

beautiful.

thank you.
have a hug (0)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WaLqr5XqUCo

DoctorShoot said...

Marcela
what an extraordinary musician is Astor Piazzolla!!
thanks for the introduction...

love the hugs... though I am such a big ugly bear that I'd likely scare off prospective participants...

Zeph said...

Doc, Doc, this is the taproom, no-one is ugly - like the MC says in Cabaret "Here everyone is beautiful. The girls are beautiful. Even the orchestra - beautiful.."

Thought bears were good at hugs anyway?

hannibalbrooks said...

A bit of high brow footy music from Sir Dudley of Dagenham.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GazlqD4mLvw

DoctorShoot said...

..and some lowbrow from cleese and lowe - the crossword - brilliant...

pipita said...

Paulita, Offy's right, you can't go wandering off to debate endlessly with a fellow countrman and leave your taproom unattended...Vamo querida, what kind of host are you??
After Argentina´s catastrophic defeat and certain retlesness after intense debating in Marcela's blog, I decided to take a rest and cross the river to Colonia in neighbouring Uruguay. No pakalolo around in these beaches, they havent heard about Offside either, but plenty of wintery sunshine and soothing uruguayan siesta atmosphere here. Think I'll order some martini's and picada a-la-Coco Basile

munni said...

For a complete change of pace:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26qczSkLip8&mode=related&search=

Doc, most thought provoking, the Archie Roach, in a few different directions. Reminded me also of the film Rabbit Proof Fence, which I recommend to anyone who hasn't seen it - harrowing but excellent.

Pipita, winter beaches - I'm jealous.

DoctorShoot said...

munni
cheers
I absolutely recommend '100 conoes' if you get the chance...

loved the link v funny... so many times the contralto of her voice comes from the fourth beer after the football has finished and tells me of the kids to feed and...

my wobbly bass responds that if she'd been the millionairess I planned to marry we could be living in the taj mahal and she could have all the help she needs and...

but dropping a cube of ice on her head seems somewhat like unnecessary cruelty...

though maybe it was about something else...

Sidney Greenstreet said...

Fifth beer after the game finishes hallucination blues:

the bar attendant gave a start
and pointing
cried out: "jute alors
his frothy glass is occupied
with instructions and pleas from her indoors"

her tense contralto rose pleading hard
to get home now and feed the kids
and mow the lawn and clean the yard and
tried to separate me from my taproom cobbers; put me on the skids...

but my clear bass response was: "darl
the football'sh only jusht finished on the screen
and if you were rich we'd have the taj mahal
and all the help you need" but it seems

my mate slipped across and dropped ice on her head
which was bound to make things worse...
now I'm off in the taxi and soon I'll be dead
(or at the very least) banned from the matrimonial bed which is, possibly, worse...

AstoundedBarman said...

Jute alors??!!

this was on the jukebox:

www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mrS0kywfwk

'ten canoes' not 100 conoes

less rum and more rhumba for me I think...
