Michele Torr looks like a cartoon character when she opens her mouth smiling near the end of (YouTube) video "La Grande Chanson 1966". Funny. That's my favorite part. Brings to mind how she looks like the Pink Panther when walking to the microphone in video "ESC-Luxembourg Michele Torr-Ce Soir Je T'Attendais (1966)". Her body is perfectly perpindicular; all relaxed and slinky like. Have mentioned that before, and how you almost expect to see Inspector Clousseau (sp.?) in the audience.

That is hilarious. I've been viewing Michele Torr's "Ce Soir Je T'Attendais" for the past three years or so without even knowing what the title meant let alone the lyrics. It may be my most favorite video of all--have probably viewed it more than any other. Lo and behold, an English version of hers has just been posted on YouTube:

Michèle Torr - Only Tears Are Left For Me

The lyrics make me laugh. Great find!

This version too is all the more enjoyable now having discovered the meaning of the song (have always liked how she begins this one singing the first part of the song delicately):

Now this one came up--hadn't viewed it in quite some time--it's got me cracking up. Just the thing, was quite unhappy today. Cheered me up:

That video of Stone singing Vive La France is very entertaining. Hard to imagine a patriotic song about the U.S. evoking love like that.

Listened to Michele Torr's Only Tears Are Left For Me a bunch more times today. Love her accent throughout the song. The music track behind it is funny too. Surprised there are no covers of the song--searched the title on YouTube and nothing but hers comes up. Original.

That might not be a music track; it's just kind of humorous though.

None of the submittals have appeared anywhere (above), and two submissions to online forums about AA did not make it past approval (when you submit the comment it says it will appear after approval but mine haven't appeared).

One other point, just re-read posts above, and meant to refer to the poor peoople at Little House as other poor people (including myself). Little House was a place I'd regulalry attended when in AA and living in Tucson in 1992-93.

Wow. Beautiful song/video; have always love this one by Gigliola Cinquetti but previously only available as audio video with photo of album cover:

Posted 'Dysfunction Junction...'(in part) last week on this website:

Concerning Problems Within AA
Mark Dombeck, Ph.D.

But it wasn't approved apparently--still doesn't show with the other comments. Found the site under a Google search of "Alcoholics Anonymous How It Works absolutism"--the link was on the third page.

The Gigliola Cinquetti Dommage, Dommage video is the one that runs for 2:46--there are two of them posted by the same name. This one is really good, and seems to have a funny intro (I don't speak French so don't know what they are saying)...

Here's one more in French--very enjoyable--looks like a young Gigliola Cinquetti:

Les Yeux Baisses

video by Elodie Guerandet

--Gigliola Ciquetti's voice sounds especially good in French for some reason. Maybe because it's higher pitched and delicate.

Looks like these French Gigliola Cinquetti videos were only recently released....the Dommage, Dommage is so good it's right up there with Le Couer Trop Tendre (have been viewing that one for past 3-4 years; Elodie Guerandet posted a new version of that with an improved picture--the b/w is sharper and clearer).

Distributed 'Dysfunction Junction...' at San Luis Obispo County Supervisors meeting yesterday. Spoke about it during public comment. The video of it comes up online on their website, just reviewed it and my comments are okay although I do refer to AA's "false teachings"--that was a little dogmatic of me, could have done without saying that. But overall speaking there seemed a good thing to do.

Tucson's AA newsletter for April does not yet appear online--unable to know if they published 'Dysfunction...'(submitted to them in the first week or so of March--they said they might publish it but seemed unsure). Hope so. Had posted it numerous times on the bulletin board at the Alano Club (where AA meetings are held) on Pima ave. but it kept getting removed.

My submission of 'Dysfunction Junction...' does not appear to be in April's Christianity Today when checking it online. Submitted first week of March. So far it doesn't appear anywhere, nor did my letter submissions to Arizona Daily Star and Arizona Republic appear.
