Furia: Cavallo del West

Firefoxy

Yesterday was the limit. After Kenneth posted his comment on my Gadget post I tried replying. I wanted to tell Kenneth that I had watched the Borat film and that it was good. I wanted to crack a stale joke about his second post scriptum which reminded me of Playstation. But I could not. My Blog would not let me post comments. I tried using Camino, Safari, Firefox and ultimately even IE – all to no avail (aside – what’s an “avail” anyway?). So having enough spare time this morning I revised the whole J’accuse script and guess what… it seems to be working.

Ladies and Gentlemen, comments may now be left at your leisure. The blog no longer rules… and I am back in command. I have this nagging feeling that this month no great technological enterprises should be begun. Until now I have only had a run of bad luck with all things technological so I will wait for a few days for the dark technological jinx to pass. Meanwhile let me end this technical note with a few reading and viewing suggestions:

At the cinema:
Watch Borat’s film with a long-winded name. It’s a great laugh that exposes Duh!merica’s finest moments. It’s out in Luxembourg so it should be out in Malta soon. I expect some protests by the anti-penis league when people find out that there are one or two penises that are visible in the film. No tits though… but that does not meant that you should not go watch… it’s wildly entertaining and offers some cringeworthy moments when some of Borat’s interlocutors bring out the best (or worst) of themselves. Jagshemash.

On DVD:
I belatedly watched Benigni’s La Tigre e la Neve… another great film by the master. Buy, rent and enjoy.

On Hardbound Books:
Wintersmith by Pratchett. It’s a Pratchett book for heaven’s sake… do you need to know anything else before you go out and buy it?

On Softer Books:
“The Religon”. A gripping book that’s full of shit (literally). It’s based around the Great Siege of Malta but gives itself the licence to wander in and out of the historical thread. Story’s cool. In war there are no winners or losers – even more so in a war between two fanatical regimes who think they are right and divinely inspired. Take Bush vs Saddam/Osama, replace them with Knights of St John vs Janissaries and Ottomans and you get the ticket. I will not spoil any parts of the story like some reviewer for Lifestyle magazine managed to do… Buy it. Oh yes, the author is a crazy looking guy called Tim Willocks.

On Tape:
Dug out some old tapes from my early “rave” period. Recordings from Radio Agrigento Centrale and other Italian stations back in the days when Radio 101 was just a nightmare in the making. Dj’s Albertino, Molella and Zappala. I particularly cherish the rave mix of “Furia Cavallo del West” – the irony of the fast beat mixing with the lyrics “furia cavallo del west che beve solo cafe” always made me chuckle. Not to mention “che lava i denti col seltz”. Only for the intiated. But hey… some people like Morrissey 🙂

Here’s the lyrics for your delectation:

Furia Cavallo del West
authors: Albertelli – De Angelis
sung by: Mal

Furia a cavallo del west
che va piu’ forte di un jet
quando fa il pieno di fieno
se no non sta in pie’

Furia a cavallo del west
che beve solo caffe’
per mantenere il suo pelo
il piu’ nero che c’e’
io vorrei salire con te
e con te mezz’ora sarei
il capo dei banditi
prima io son piccolo io
tocca a me giocare con te
sono lo sceriffo io
tu sta zitto sono il capo dei banditi
sono lo sceriffo io
ma su Furia si sta anche in tre

Furia a cavallo del west
che lava i denti col seltz
per poi sorridere bene in fondo e’ sul set
viva la Furia del west
cintura di karate’
per sgominare la banda
piu’ in gamba che c’e’
io vorrei salire con te
e con te mezz’ora sarei
il capo dei Moicani
prima io son piccolo io
tocca a me giocare con te
sono Davy Crockett io
tu sta zitto sono il capo dei Moicani
sono davy crockett io
ma su Furia si sta anche in tre

Furia a cavallo del west
che va piu’ forte di un jet
quando fa il pieno di fieno
se no non sta in pie’

Furia a cavallo del west
che beve solo caffe’
per mantenere il suo pelo
ilpiu’ nero che c’e’

Furia a cavallo del west
che lava i denti col seltz
per poi sorridere bene in fondo e’ sul set
viva la Furia del west
cintura di karate’
per sgominare la banda
piu’ in gamba che c’e’

Furia a cavallo del west
che va piu’ forte di un jet
quando fa il pieno di fieno
se no non sta in pie’

Furia a cavallo del west
che beve solo caffe’
per mantenere il suo pelo
il piu’ nero che c’e’
