The next time someone tells you they think 1930s music is lame and tame, you let them listen to this little ditty by Patricia Norman, accompanied by Eddy Duchin and his band.
Warning: Explicit language.
That’s right, explicit language. If you don’t like it in your music, please don’t listen. You’ve been warned!
This was the first known song which had the F word in it, and it was absolutely scandalous when it first came out in 1938. In fact, it not only uses the F word, it uses it repeatedly. Read the lyrics and you’ll see why! Too bad there wasn’t a TV performance like the spectacular one by Betty Hutton, albeit to tamer lyrics, at the end of this post.
Until December 6th, there is a global campaign on Facebook where people replace their profile pictures with their favourite cartoon character/s, then encourage their friends to do the same. Now this campaign I like! Too bad it’s way too short but it’s gone viral globally after just a day’s notice!
I’ve got over 250 cartoon pictures made for Facebook profile pics at the bottom, arranged in alphabetical order with names, which include some modern and some old cartoons.
I did not create these, but I got them on Facebook and cannot determine their creators on the Net so I don’t have links to their sources. I did touch them up to give more contrast, line-up a few things, remove advertisements from sites which stole them and advertised themselves on them, and so on. These are better than their originals. As for theme, these are Japanese anime and manga posters, but those with humans in them rather than other creatures.

Bleach or Burīchi (ブリーチ)
Final Fantasy or Fainaru Fantajī (ファイナルファンタジー)
Merubura (メルブラ ), sometimes known as Melty Blood (メルティブラッド Meruti Buraddo)
Street Fighters or SF (ストリートファイター Sutorīto Faitā)
Tekken or Iron Fist (鉄拳)
The first is Bleach or Burīchi(ブリーチ).
The second is Final Fantasy or Fainaru Fantajī (ファイナルファンタジー. I’ll let you figure out what it’s about if you don’t know and/or can’t guess. 🙂 )
The third is a Merubura (メルブラ ) set that is sometimes known in English as Melty Blood, as per the Wikipedia entry (メルティブラッド Meruti Buraddo), is a visual novel and fighting game, co-developed by dōjin circles Type-Moon and French-Bread, originally released at Comiket on December 2002. That English name somehow just seems like a very poor translation.
The fourth is the Street Fighter or SF (ストリートファイター Sutorīto Faitā) set. Guess what it’s about? Of course, I should mention there are Japanese themes not about fighting and war, like the ever gentle Hello Kitty.
The final one is a Tekken or Iron Fist (鉄拳) set. It, too, is a fighting video game.
