The Explanation
(for those who require one)

And, of course, that is what all of this is -- all of this: the one song, ever changing, ever reincarnated, that speaks somehow from and to and for that which is ineffable within us and without us, that is both prayer and deliverance, folly and wisdom, that inspires us to dance or smile or simply to go on, senselessly, incomprehensibly, beatifically, in the face of mortality and the truth that our lives are more ill-writ, ill-rhymed and fleeting than any song, except perhaps those songs -- that song, endlesly reincarnated -- born of that truth, be it the moon and June of that truth, or the wordless blue moan, or the rotgut or the elegant poetry of it. That nameless black-hulled ship of Ulysses, that long black train, that Terraplane, that mystery train, that Rocket '88', that Buick 6 -- same journey, same miracle, same end and endlessness."
-- Nick Tosches, Where Dead Voices Gather

We ran another shot from this session in an earlier installment, but this one is even more, uh, close up.

It's true there is nothing like a Dame.

I'm a face man, myself… but the rest of her sure doesn't hurt the cause. Jeepers, what a dish.

Vanwall said...

Ah, another from The Diana Rigg Wing of the Sex Education building.

This is becoming a shrine to divine Diana! Not that I'm complaining...

Trader said...

It doesn't hurt having a second shot, I confirm... ;)

Certain people always get tons of comments on this blog, Diana Rigg is definately one of them, so is Ann-Margaret. We have to see about a poll of some sort one of these days.

Tom, thoughts?

Ann-Margret and Diana Rigg are in different categories, but both certainly at the top

Bye Bye Birdie.

I watched every episode of The Avengers on American TV when I was a kid. I couldn't tell you the plot to any of them. But that leather suit is burned onto my brain like a brand. Ah, young love!
