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

too bad most of you didn't have a chance to see him on an Italian TV series (now coming to a conclusion after its 7th season), where he played a country priest who solves mysteries à la Father Brown.

Love Terence Hill! As a French speaker who grew up in the 80s, I'll forever associate him with Bud Spencer in those cartoonish action movies (I saw one not too long ago and was awed by Hill's grace in the fight scenes, which of course is such a contrast to Bud Spencer's bearish style). <3

He also made a great Lucky Luke (too bad the script was crappy).
