What the Manolo Is…

Manolo says, it is Tuesday, time to see what the Manolo is…

Reading…

Watching…

Listening to…

The workings of the human mind are truly the mystery, no?

For several days now two songs have been playing continuously–round, round, baby, right round–in the Manolo’s mind. The first is the marvelously hummable “The Brotherhood of Man,” from the the quintessential 1960′s workplace musical comedy, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

The second is, inexplicably, the opening few chords from Dolly Parton’s “Why’d You Come in Here Lookin’ Like That.“.

The mysterious brain part is that, as far as the Manolo knows, he has not heard either of these songs in the past few weeks, and yet there they are, on the continual reply loop in his head. And so, the Manolo has decided that the best therapy is to see the movie and listen to the Dolly, not exactly the onerous tasks.

P.S. When the Manolo hears “Why’d You Come In Here Lookin’ Like That,” in his head, these are NOT the mental images that accompany it…

    That video was profoundly disturbing.

    Christ on a bike! The video was ever-so-frightening.

    And yet? It made me laugh… in particular the booty shot.

    The Dolly, she is unfortunately underrated due to her, ummm, other assets.

    May The Zarba humbly recommend the new release from Sugarland, “Love on The Inside”. Ms. Nettles has the most beautiful, twangy voice. The CD also includes a cover of The Dream Academy’s “Life in a Northern Town” that is phenomenal, along with a most humorous ode to Steve Earle.

    The Manolo, he is the best friends with the Kathy Griffin?
