My little chestnuts,
Today we keep setting the scene for this Carmen Miranda week… And I’d like to introduce you to my officemate the awesomeRadiooooo
. So what is it ? Well Radiooooo
(with 5 ‘o’) is a website where you’ll be able to listen to music starting in September. Okay great thank you for the idea. No wait to hear for the full concept it’s great! The concept is geniously explained in the small video on the website (they’re also paper addict…). Well the concept is a map of the world on which you can choose the country and the decade from the 1900’s to nowadays. Gigantic musical archives, magical sound cure, there isn’t all the music of the world but only the best songs to them, they selected la crème de la crème for your ears. And it also is a social network where you can submit tunes, if you are (for instance) an expert in Poland music from the 40’s you can send them your gems and they put them in the relevant playlist.
Since we have to wait for September to listen to those rare sound gems, in the meantime Noémie
made us a fruited playlist to our special Carmen Miranda week. You can enjoy it here on Spotify
and you’ll see the list of the tunes with the associated video clip below, be prepared !
To make all of these paper fruits that you’ll see on the top of my head by the end of the week, rendez-vous on a really awesome american website: Mr Printables…
Happy Monday kitties !
I declare this special Miranda Carmen week open ! And it’s not Carmen Miranda even though I always make the mistake since the party at the Carmen with you guys… So I can hear you from here, who is Miranda Carmen ? Okay okay if you’re born in the 1900’s I forgive you but for the others it is a public matter for your good mood and spirit to know her! Miranda Carmen is an actress/singer whose nickname was the Brazilian bombshell, even though she was born in Portugal to me she is the symbol of the all-accomplished actress who dances and sings in the Fox’s musicals from the 40’s. A bit like Marilyn Monroe, she was often reduced to comical parts: a very funny scandalous brunette with her legendary fruits hats and her incredible Flamenco dresses with flounces… I advise you to re-watchBanana Split
, Week-end à la Havane
or Nuit à Rio
. So cool that they’ve become classics when you feel a little down… And Miranda Carmen is also very trendy right now, « Tropicalismo » is everywhere with the Brazil theme at Monoprix, the World Cup that will soon invade our TVs and the arrival of the Sun in our life!
Je vous embrasse fort and see you tomorrow!
