I was never a big fan of the stupid franco bashing that went on after they refused to back our invasion of Iraq. One of the worst things to come out of it was the ridiculous redubbing of French fries as freedom fries, French toast as freedom toast, etc. I hate that. So yeah, this friday I'm saying Fuck You to anyone that was in favor of freedom fries. Not that this is really relevant to current politics, but every now and again I still spot a "boycott france" bumper sticker, so Fuck those people.
Oh HEY, while I'm on the subject of France, I guess I can share this awesome song from the animated film Les Triplettes de Belleville.
Everything about this song is great. The guitar scratching is fantastic, the vocals all tiptoe back and forth between absurdly comic and straight up awesome. From what I've been told, the version in English isn't nearly as good either. Something about the flow of the French language just appeals to my ear musically.
