An American Spaniard in France or: How I Learned to Make an Ass of Myself in Three Cultures

The Internet’s just messing with me now


I don’t even know what this means, but the day after I wrote about ren dez vez, this thing popped up on Twitter.


This reminds me

When the 80s cover version of “Lean On Me” was popular, I couldn’t find it at record stores. I was looking for a group called Club Nevo based on what my local DJs said. Many years later, I got an 80s compilation CD as a gift and there it was, “Lean On Me” by Club Nouveau. Oy vey.
