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.

That new one is a lot tidier and cleaner - then again I like black text on a white background with a simple layout!

Madeleine can be found in English translation on the soundtrack of _Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris_.

THANK YOU. You have joined myself and sunnysky. And you're also a Jacques Brel fan. You continue to climb in my book.

Have you heard Acda en de Munnik's version of "(De stad) Amsterdam"?
