Me too. My favourite was when he characterised shellac as „Chinese fly shit“ (although I had always thought is was Indian)

I have nothing but admiration for people that could train the bugs to deposit an even,  uniform coating on an instrument, no matter from which continent they hail from.:lol:

That's nothing compared to the earwigs they trained in Markneukirchen to antique the instruments. Imagine being so small, and having to hold up a screwdriver to scratch at the varnish.

When I was a kid and heard adults discussing life behind the Iron Curtain, I developed a mental image in my head where nobody smiled with happiness, everything was devoid of color ( the whole Soviet Union was in utilitarian black and white) and the weather was always dreary, overcast at best.

My wife immigrated from there in 1988;  when I first met her, I asked jokingly what her first impression was of experiencing color.  She asked if I was dropped on my head at some point in my childhood. Natural selection was completed, and we were married a few years later.

Where is that, Ann Arbor?

Since you asked this about Ann Arbor, Ann Arbor happens to have more sunshiny days than Vienna. ;)

But I will send you a flashlight and a mirror, should you wish assistance contemplating your "nether regions". :D

Well, I see a lot of  bright colors in these photos, but joy and spontaneity are singularly muted.  Lest we forget.......... :ph34r:

Oh look, trained Marxist's walking to Beverly Hills to get their bail money :lol:

Why do I get the feeling that if you produce a big, thick, literary novel, Finnegan's Wake will have serious competition?  ;)
