julesG Don't even know why I picked this trilogy for 21 - I know there is a scene where the MCs are in the desert, neither knowing who they are. 4w
BarbaraBB Well played! 😘 4w

“What matters is what we write: that is what we are, not some puppet made up by those who talk and enclose us in a prison so different from our dreams.”

Cinfhen I‘m always creeped out by ventriloquist puppets 😳 1mo
Cathythoughts They really scare me too 😱 1mo
LiterRohde @Cinfhen @Cathythoughts But it‘s a great quote possibly from the introduction to the tagged book that looks to be a great collection of short stories from an Argentinian author. 1mo

I know a lot of people hated Madonna in Evita, but I enjoyed the movie. #DontCryForMeArgentina isn't my favorite song from the movie, my favorite is "You Must Love Me", which brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it.

#WanderingJune @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB

Leftcoastzen I love that one too! My obsession with Evita began way before the play or film. I had a stamp collection as a kid, saw her on the stamp and wanted to know who this beautiful woman was.Pre internet days , had to use encyclopedia ,Libraries and such.😀 1mo
annahenke I remember performing Don't Cry for Me at a recital for voice lessons back in the day. Love that tune. 1mo
erzascarletbookgasm I don‘t hate her in Evita 🙂 1mo
Cinfhen I thought she was wonderful in the film and even Antonio Banderas grew on me 🎶💕 1mo

(Day 23 - #DontCryForMeArgentina)

*I cannot hear this title without immediately thinking of Madonna. When I was (much) younger, the publication of “Sex” by Madonna caused a furor that I‘ll never forget. Now she writes children‘s books . . . who‘d a thunk it?

BarbaraBB She does? Somehow I wouldn‘t trust het with my kids 😂😂 1mo
gradcat @BarbaraBB Surprised me as well. I only found out when I looked her up to find out the full name of her photo book (and whaddya know—it‘s all of one word!). She‘s written several, and from what I‘ve gleaned, she does fairly well with them, especially in the UK. Apparently, she started righting them for Lourdes. I have to say, I was shocked to learn about them, and shocked again to realize that I‘d never heard about her writing children‘s books! 😂 1mo

I was stuck with a book for the #DontCryForMeArgentina prompt as Argentina is another country missing from my bookshelves. Then I remembered this travelogue & that the author learned to tango in San Francisco then went to Buenos Aries to dance there. It's a short chapter in the book but she decides there is too much restraint & not enough fun in the tango for her but no crying was involved--at least not in Argentina.💃🏻🕺🏻🤷🏼‍♀️

Cinfhen ❤️🌹 1mo
Cinfhen Beautiful collage 1mo
BarbaraBB Look at them! The tango is sooo sexy 💕 (edited) 1mo

It won't be easy, you'll think it strange
When I try to explain how I feel
That I still need your love after all that I've done🎶

#dontcryformeargentina #wanderingjune @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB

Cinfhen 🎶You won't believe me
All you will see is a girl you once knew
Although she's dressed up to the nines
At sixes and sevens with you🎶
