Enjoy … the Supremes at the Copa (1965)


“The Supremes at the Copa is a live album by Motown singing group The Supremes, recorded during their debut engagement at the prestigious Copacabana nightclub in New York City. Released in the late fall of 1965, At the Copa was the first live album issued by The Supremes, and the only live album issued by the group’s best-known lineup of Diana Ross, Florence Ballard, and Mary Wilson. Missing the Billboard LP Top 10 by a notch (#11), “The Supremes at the Copa” was a commercial success remaining on the album chart for 54 weeks.” (Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Supremes_at_the_Copa)

Ashes to ashes in France … or should one write : From French aces to asses (and “assises”) of Paris ?

Feu France

Paris brûle-t’il ?

Paris used to be one of the greatest cities of the world, France was one of the powerhouses of Europe, and some French were recognized as among the best and brightest people on earth.

Once upon an ancient time …

Some twit it deliciously short

Twittos of few words are (among) the best (geeks).


Picture: Rex Features

Jay Leno (April 28, 1950-) :
Politics is just show business for ugly people.’

Ambrose Bierce, author of The Devil’s Dictionary (1842-1913) :
War is God’s way of teaching Americans geography.’

Dorothy Parker (1893-1967) :
If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to.’

Woody Allen (1 December 1935-) :
Life is full of misery, loneliness, and suffering – and it’s all over much too soon.’

Never mind, it’s just the French (already) fighting again for Elysée Palace

General view of Hotel Matignon in Paris

Matignon Palace, Paris, France

The French have always loved red carpets, palaces, romance, and “grandeur” …

This explains why French would be visitors and politicians queue-up by the hundreds when the palace is open for public visits, or fight like starving living deads to get invited for cocktails, garden-parties or dinners at “The Elysée Palace”. http://renaudfavier.com/2012/09/15/les-journees-du-patrimoine-2012-en-france-et-en-europe-cest-maintenant/


This must be the reason why the French former leader Nicolas Sarkozy is coming back into the ring http://surlepouceparis.wordpress.com/2014/09/20/sarkome-back-les-vraies-raisons-du-retour-de-nicolas-sarkozy/

This must be why current French leader François Hollande has not resigned yet, in spire of disastrous polls http://renaudfavier.com/2014/09/20/france-la-foire-aux-petits-vains-honni-qui-aux-nains-y-pense-maintenant/

Good game, #Scotland … Same player shoot again #ScotlandIndependence …

In English, they say : Good Game, and her Majesty would add “We are amused”

In Germenglich, they say : Lieber s…tuffed like Salmond als savaged like Wallace

The Auld Allies in France say : C’est la vie (et l’avis de la majorité, pour cette fois)

De Gaulle would have said, in London, or Edinburgh  : “Vive l’Ecosse … libre !”

That’s all I have to say … for the time being.
