A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

a wonderful exhibit. love chicken iris! enjoying the music this morning.
  Thu. 8/31/17 10:47am soulchap:

Dear Trubble...I would say that Sick-uh-duh is technically correct, if you follow the "rules" of spoken Englerish. The standard is that the pre-penultimate syllable, which would be the first syllable in that word. I have no idea why the "official" pronunciation is accepted. Growing up in Pittsburgh, we used to say chick-Ay-duh.
I could not, for the life of me, remember the word syllable...

Dvorak would be happy
  Thu. 8/31/17 10:55am soulchap:

Oh, heck, missing part of sentence = the stressed syllable is usually the next-to-next-to-last (in-Term-in-a-ble should really be in-term-In-a-ble, but that just sounds weird).
Dang I missed the Dead Mauriacs. I adore Discrepant and Gonzo. Glad you're onto that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/31/17 11:00am BronwynB:

interesting that in english the antepenultimate is the stressed syllable. i'd never heard that but it explains the way the british (who invented the language and are always a bit more "proper") pronounce things. in spanish it's the penultimate syllable unless there's an accent.
  Thu. 8/31/17 11:07am soulchap:

Ah, antepenultimate. Thanks, BronwynB. My brain is on hold but the music is good.

Nice. "Las Grecas was a Spanish musical duo of Flamenco - rock formed in 1973 by two romani sisters, Carmela Muñoz Barrull (Valladolid, July 19, 1954), and Edelina Muñoz Barrull (Madrid, February 17, 1957 - Aranjuez, January 30, 1995), better known as Tina. They had a huge initial success with the theme "Te estoy amando locamente" (I love you madly) which sold 500,000 copies.
