Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
So to finish off a Friday night, another DVD, also with Ewan McGregor, this time "Young Adam." Now, there was no character named Adam, and I'm a bit undone by not being able to figure out why this was the title. But I'll research it a bit.

Also another fabulous tune, by David Byrne. The Great Western Road. I adore David Byrne. I loved "True Stories" and not just because I lived awhile in Texas. The soundtrack was perfect. If you haven't seen the film, I recommend it.

'tis strange I should be old and neither wise nor valiant. From "The Maid's Tragedy" by Beaumont & Fletcher

ah now that brings up one of the tracks I would have in my desert Island selection David Byrne and Brian Eno's Jezebel Spirit. (which I keep thinking I'll put together for Helens diary.)

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

Yes, that was what I had thought you meant. And that the comments should be in response to the diarist's selections, right?  I'm still making my way through listening to all of your pieces before commenting, and before I even consider peeking at Strange Fruit by Frank.
