Browsed Neil Youngs autobiography at Barnes and Noble bookstore recently. I had his 'Decade' as a teenager and it was one of my favorites. Young begins his second chapter explaining his doctor noticed there is something growing in his brain and advised Young to quit marijuana smoking. Young said he is listening to his doctor and is quitting marijuana as well as alcohol. Both have influenced his songwriting, so he doesn't know what the future holds in that respect.

Wonder if it's a brain tumor that showeed up on an MRI or CT scan? I smoked marijuana heavily as a teen, and received a probable diagnosis of lung cancer in 2011. Pulmonologist (sp.?) recommended removing a section of the lung; "slowly enlarging" 1.3cm nodule too close to the diaphram for a needle biopsy, etc.(have explained all this before on this forum).

I don't know much about Lady Gaga as most the stuff I've seen her involved in is repulsive. Today she's on a CNN video explaining she was addicted to marijuana. Glad to hear someone famous saying that. Unfortunately, she goes on to say that for young people she believes marijuana is "the best of drugs to choose from". It would have been much better to leave it at marijuana is addictive.

Besides, it's not a huge revelation--pro-marijuana advocates will have to admit sooner or later that marijauna is addictive since most who smoke it know that. And people that know marijuana smokers know that it is addcitive for them. Not all people, but many if not most find marijuana addictive. I was paying $340/month before quitting in 1985. And that was when working minimum wage jobs taking home only about $700/month.

CNN has a commentary online today criticizing Miley Cyrus while pointing out the following:

"...But Lady Gaga has also used her fame for more than just self-promotion. This week while Miley Cyrus was smoking a joint on stage, Lady Gaga was opening up about her addiction to marijuana. She admitted that at one time she smoked 15-20 joints a day. She talked about her struggles in overcoming addiction.

Gaga offered a sobering cautionary tale for young people that marijuana may turn out to be more than recreational fun -- it could consume your life."

It's about time there is information to counter all the pro-marijuana propaganda. The last time I'd seen any (info countering pro-marijuana propaganda) was when Bill O'Reilly commented about Whitney Houston years ago.

Strange. Just found an obscure Michele Torr video from 1966--it's quite nice, though it doesn't show her singing--just images:

Le film est trop long

video by Gecavar

...I don't know French but it wasn't too hard to figure out the title means the film is too long.

Here's another one of hers--I've viewed it often over past 3-4 years, really love this video, hard to figure out why there are only 2,000+ views of it--may be due to it also being obscure:

The Michele Torr "Le Film Est Trop Long" is really good--just found that the other day and have listened to it often since then. Apparently it was a song by Sonny and Cher reworked into French.

I didn't like this the first time viewing it so have passed it up ever since then. Tried again, and turns out it's hilarious French ye-ye:

Katty Line - Les mots croisés (1967)

Yeah, that Katty Line Les mots croises sounded a little annoying on first try many months ago, gave up on it rather quickly. But it's quintessential French ye-ye; love that psychadelic strobe light effect when she's dancing, and her dancing cracks me up. My other favorite part is when she is facing the camera with her hands on her hips. Funny. It's all part of the ye ye schtick if you haven't happened to catch on.

Ooops...psychedelic, not "psychadelic".

Found this explanation online about Katty Line's 'Igor, Natacha':

"Igor, Natacha" is a cover of "Country dancing" which is written by Mike d'Abo during the days he was singer in Manfred Mann.

Manfred Mann recorded the song and put it on their album "Mighty Garvey!". The song was also recorded by Gene Pitney and put on his album "Something's gotten hold of my heart".

Mike never put this song on any of his solo recordings.

It's a catchy tune--seem to have heard it before but never knew where it came from....

This has a good sound; apparently it's from Katty Line's last album before her tragic car accident wherein her husband died when they crashed with a lorry while driving through mountains in France...

The inteersting things that are found on YouTube...came across Francoise Dorleac film videos...hadn't known of her...turns out she was Catherine Deneuve's elder sister. Here's the tragic paragraph about Francoise from her Wiki page:

"...Branching out into such non-French movies as Genghis Khan (1965), Where the Spies Are (1965) with David Niven, and The Billion Dollar Brain (1967) opposite Michael Caine, Françoise was on the brink of true international stardom when she died on 26 June 1967.

On that date, she lost control of the rented Renault 10 she was driving and hit a signpost ten kilometers from Nice at the Villeneuve-Loubet exit of the highway La Provençale. The car flipped over, and burst into flames. She had been en route to Nice airport and was afraid of missing her flight. Françoise was seen struggling to get out of the car, but was unable to open the door. Police later identified her body only from the fragment of a cheque book, a diary and her driver's licence."

Francoise Dorleac was only 25 years old when that happened.
