The Ten Plagues of The Europe

Manolo says, ayyyyy! Day two of the Eurovision Song Contest and already it worse than the ten plagues that the angry Yahweh meted out to the unjust Pharoah and the Egyptians. Look at the comparison.

First Plague…Danish pop doofuses

Second plague…the vocal stylings of Croatia’s own Boris and the Belly Buttons.

Third… Norwegian Village People glam rockers.

Number four…Andorra?

Five… caterwauling Portagees!

Ayyyyy! What awaits us as we sink through the inky depths of Hell. The locusts, and the frogs, and the boils, they are nothing compared to this!

Fragonard’s Swing

Wills Fancy Billy Shoes

Manolo says, these shoes from the Will’s Fancy, they are the sort of pretty Rococo slipper that might be kicked into the air from the delicate foot of the beautiful girl.

Napoleon XIV

Manolo says, here on the top you see, with the beautiful Eva Herzigova, the freaky little fashion troll John Galliano.

There on the bottom, you see the Mr. Galliano in the more formal attire.

By the way, this it confirms the Manolo’s premise that, in the general, the designing of the fashion, it appeals most to those who are themselves not possessed of the physical beauty.

Manolo says, these one-band slides with the buckle from the Ellen Tracy they have the classic looks that appeal to the Manolo. If you were to insist on wearing something in the khaki, these, with the faux crocodile, they would give you the touch of African safari mystery.

The Plague!

Manolo says, Ayyyyyyy! The symptoms they are presenting…

First the rash of the Scandanavian Abba-wanna-be’s…

…then the itchy Austrian oompah-rockers…

…followed by the painful Eastern European gypsy-accordian-rock ensembles…

…next the Hungarians, always, and inexplicably, the Hungarians…

And finally, the act that wowed them in Minsk!

Manolo says, this it can only mean one thing!

Live from Kiev! It is the loathsome pestilence known as the Eurovision Song Contest!

The Manolo he has made his contribution to this project, it begins…

The search for the super fantastic shoes, it sometimes takes the Manolo into places of unsavoriness. Thus it was, years ago, when the Manolo found himself in the backroom of the half-caste bordello on the outskirts of Mumbai.

Eagerly awaiting the release of…

It is perhaps not well known that the Manolo he is the connoisseur of the cowboy movies, from the worst to the best. Sadly, this genre, it mostly went the way of the open range.

However, there is the Deadwood and this weekend the Manolo he purchased the first season, at the behest of the friend who had recommend this to the Manolo. The Manolo he does not have the HBO, so he had not seen this show.

After the watching of only the first two of the episodes the Manolo he is ready to say that the Deadwood, it is the masterwork of sorts. Alternately horrific and hilarious, it has the ring of truth to it. The Manolo he cannot wait to see the rest of the episodes.
