What the Manolo Is…

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

Reading…

Listening to…

Watching…

The Manolo commends to you the oeuvre of the French prankster Rémi Gaillard, who is sort of like Johnny Knoxville only more impish and surreal, and much, much funnier. For the example, the last minute of this video made the Manolo laugh so hard that he had to wipe away the tears…

And the next prank is so irresistibly sweet and funny…

But, for the Manolo, Rémi is always at his best when he is tweaking les flics.

..and especially when he does so with the soccer ball…

But, if you go look at the entirety of Rémi Gaillard’s work you will soon realize that he is not only one of the greatest pranksters of all time, but also the utterly magnificent, utterly fearless physical comedian.

    But why is the Manolo reading the field guide to North American birds? Although it’s a lovely book, I thought the Manolo now lived in South America?

    The Manolo returned to North America in the early summer of last year, and now resides in the California, although he dreams continually of returning to Buenos Aires soon. It is such the beautiful, livable city where the people are so gracious and cultured.

    Of the course, this is not to say that the Manolo does not also love California, and New York, and Spain, and Paris, and, and, and….

    And this is the problem, we are granted only one life time and there is so much that must be done before we die, so many places to see and enjoy, so many things to experience, so many wonderful people we must meet and grow to love.

    That was a lovely and inspiring reply. I’m going to go out and experience some new things right now.
