thunderous sparks from the dark of the stadiums, the music and medicine you needed for comforting
a couple of days ago i was bemoaning the vocal presence of a karaoke bar below where i was staying. well a few hours ago it started up again, and i heard the unmelodic strains of a volunteer, channelling barry manilow, drift in through my open window. i'm confident that even the most rational among you would see this as acceptable provocation to jump out of the window, but my mind didn't follow those thoughts. instead i tried to think about where i'd heard oh mandy sung in a happier context. changing mandy to mindy i realised it was from a really old simpsons episode - the last temptation of homer - where homer has a crush on a co-worker called mindy. he sings to himself - to the tune of manilow's mandy - before he notices lisa is also in the room. i found a clip of the audio on youtube which regrettably cuts out before lisa can deliver her perfect analysis: "judging from your song you're infatuated with a woman named mindy... or a man named andy". i managed to find the whole episode online (google the title if you want to) and realised it was one of the best episodes they ever made (really, you should google it). how about that, a bad barry manilow cover ends up making me happy, i didn't see that one coming.

here's the original
Hola amigo, te felicito, me gusto mucho tu foto es la mejor foto que he visto de este castillo, yo vivo aquí en Cumaná y desde niño me ha gustado la fotografía, aunque no soy fotógrafo me gusta de vez en cuando tomar buenas fotos. Encontré tu foto en Tumblr y me llamo poderosamente la atención, con que programa editaste la foto ya que vi la original donde mencionas abajo del texto. Saludos...
