How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?
Arthur Conan Doyle (22 may 1859 - 1930) novelist, poet, physician
today we shine our spotlight on the body art of ray raymond a particularly gifted and delightfully entertaining slight of hand artist who was busking at the fair.
ray's ink is an eclectic array - and range from a visual ode to a favorite musical group (six feet deep and their song angry son) on one arm to an ethereal angel and dove on the other.
There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact. (acd)to celebrate fair season and the unofficial start of summer on the north coast, today's song is one of my all time favorites scarborough fair.
as in past years, the mouse offers a slide show of some of my photos from the 43rd annual hessler street fair - to view it click here.
this version is done by the incomparably talented eclectic group the imagined village. however, before the song gets really underway is four minutes of wonderfully entertaining prattle by billy bragg. i love billy and as far as i'm concerned he can prattle on forever. in this vid billy discusses his identification with marmite, his quest to define what is is to be english, along with all sorts of other interesting bits (including quoting one of billy and my heroes - woody guthrie).
