(I read “Borges Y Yo” in Spanish 3 at Dartmouth, in its original Argentine; was my professor named Russell? And I found it recently, in English, at a good used book store near the Plaza in Santa Fe, New Mexico, which is part of the U.S., one of my favorite parts actually)
(I have a copy of “I and Thou” on my shelf but I admit I have not gotten very far with it — wonder what Freud would say about that)
“Matador” tv show, “the Moe Berg of Soccer” some wag says, starring Tony Bravo, who is either fictional or real, close enough for Plastic Alto.
The Merc also had a nice story about social media and Copa Mundial, which I should read into as follow up to my paen to World Cup Buzz the App.
I am repeating for emphasis: gotze cup?!
And I want to drag into this brouhaha the German stamp: they ran either five million of these or five million dollars worth, and were prepared to pulp them, make them a pulp fiction.
I also want to suss out the thing about “Bad Moon Rising” adapted to song by Argentinians; is that the same thing in Jere Longman “Your daddy is in the house/You have relinquished control to an authority figure”?
And: do White Stripes get any bounce from “7 Nation Army” being so ubiquitous?
