in which jean valjean expresses the sentiments of every person who has ever read the brick
I agree with that, but I’ve also always wondered why “Dick” is short for “Richard”. At least, if the name was “Rickard” it’d make more sense already, and perhaps it initially came from that…but yeah… names logic, my friends….names logic…
Sharing a neat video of Canne de Combat & Bâton de Combat.
This is a demonstration of these lesser known martial arts, created in the 19th century, at a Martial Arts festival.
Fights are freestyle (the fighting style is naturally aesthetic, full of jumps and flourishes (it’s French)), but given the Stick fighters in this demonstration were unprotected, most of the assault is carried out in slow motion.
Stay until the end for double-wielding cane fighters!
via museumnerd This could be quite interesting. I put this into Austrian google and it offered me: ￼
“Museums are there for the masses”, “Museums are cathedrals for the modern era” and “Why are museums important?” Can anyone offer any other languages?
“Are museums free?”
“Museums are worlds”
“Are museums free in London?”
“Are museums the cemeteries of art?”
Both Google.ca and Google.fr return these same autocompleted queries.
Google.com results are a bit different, you also get:
“Museums are open from-“
“Are museums for sale?”

UGH I’M SO MAD
I am trying to find a song, but it’s French, and I can’t remember the lyrics at all
it was a song about a little kid who is going to bed and the mom and dad are like GOODNIGHT LOL and then he freaks out and starts imagining all these monsters
I remember the band was made up of this one dramatic guy with a bald head, and another guy who played the ukulele, and a lady, and they did children’s songs— and I don’t mean frére-jacques-type ditties that you remember from when you were four, I mean cool contemporary music that just so happens to be kinda childish
in hindsight it’s very very similar to Tally Hall’s Turn The Lights Off in attitude and style
god I will seriously do something cool for anybody who can provide me this song, maybe I’ll draw you something, I want this song so bad
I want it so bad I’m not tagging this post with #dumb shit just because I want everyone to see it
edit: GOD I REMEMBERED ANOTHER ONE there was one by some kind of boy band and they had a cute girl take most of her clothes off and throw yellow paint all over a really nice car in the music video
please someone help my French music quest I am losing my mind
if I get one more result for “Lady Gaga’s Monster” or “Big Yellow Taxi” i’m going to shit all over everything
Ok, ok, ok…. I don’t know these songs, but by the simple virtue of being a native French speaker, maybe I can dig these up using your clues.
Let’s see if I can do this for you…
*half an hour of Google-Fu ensues*
Alright! I think I got ‘em! Almost gave up on that first one but I’m pretty certain I nailed it now!
Hope these are what you were looking for!
Obligatory courtesy translation (I’m sure this would confound Google Translate anyways): “Ow ow ow <expletive> - my face hurts…”
YOU WOULD NEVER HAVE GUESSED. THAT WAS DEEP DIALOGUE.
