Bits and pieces

Jacques Brel sings “Madeleine”. Even for those who don’t speak French, I think this video (from Scopitones) of Brel singing his own song about a bloke who is perpetually stood up by his girlfriend, but thinks she still loves him, is really gripping.

On another much more important theme, I had missed the discussion of the proposed new User Info pages. I must make a heretical statement: I actually think the new version is an improvement over the current version. It would be nice to have some freedom of which bits get placed where, though. And I’m well aware that I have no taste at all in matters of graphic design.

One thought on “Bits and pieces

  1. In Marc Platt’s novel Cat’s Cradle: Time’s Crucible, Ace is exploring the Tardis and makes an interesting discovery: “In a dusty library, stacked with books and parchments, was a medieval manuscript entitled The Doctour of Science’s Tale. It was inscribed Fare ful wel, Doctour, and signed Geoffrey Chaucer. Year of our Lord, 1388.”

    I leave the fanfic explanation to others.
