Robert Cohn was once middleweight boxing champion of

Princeton. Do not think that I am very much impressed by that

as a boxing title, but it meant a lot to Cohn. He cared nothing for

boxing, in fact he disliked it, but he learned it painfully and

thoroughly to counteract the feeling of inferiority and shyness he

had felt on being treated as a Jew at Princeton. There was a cer-

tain inner comfort in knowing he could knock down anybody who

was snooty to him, although, being very shy and a thoroughly

nice boy, he never fought except in the gym. He was Spider

Kelly's star pupil. Spider Kelly taught all his young gentlemen to

box like featherweights, no matter whether they weighed one

hundred and five or two hundred and five pounds. But it seemed

to fit Cohn. He was really very fast. He was so good that Spider

promptly overmatched him and got his nose permanently flattened.

This increased Cohn's distaste for boxing, but it gave him a cer-

tain satisfaction of some strange sort, and it certainly improved his

nose. In his last year at Princeton he read too much and took to

wearing spectacles. I never met any one of his class who remem-

bered him. They did not even remember that he was

middle-weight boxing champion.

-Ernest Hemingway in The Sun Also Rises.

Several Vitas songs. the guy is good, and i can't stop looking up his videos. (for the record, i don't know word one of russian)

"Hide and Seek" by Imogen Heap

 

By the way, Я говорю по-русски чут-чут. (I speak a little Russian) So I can try to translate those songs by Vitas (emphasis on the try) and will post whatever I get whenever I get it in a new thread...

Tearing through these days I find the tolerance to strive and push on.

I know what lies beyond this life for me is already won.

No man can take away this blood that covers all of my faults.

Without the blood of perfect life I know I'm nothing at all.

So now I reign forever hallowed in eternity's hand.

No man can shake me from the everlasting ground that I stand.

I love Demon Hunter, they're awesome.

(Note: mild language.)

They carried him down the ladder and through the cloister and

across the rock to the most precipitous cliff--the one over which

the Ácoma women flung broken pots and such refuse as the turkeys

would not eat. There the people were assembled. They cut his

bonds, and taking him by the hands and feet, swung him out over the

rock-edge and back a few times. He was heavy, and perhaps they

thought this dangerous sport. No sound but hissing breath came

through his teeth. The four executioners took him up again from

the brink where they had laid him, and, after a few feints, dropped

him in mid-air.

-Willa Cather, Death Comes for the Archbishop

 

The lyrics in this song are a little weaker than some of Celldweller's other stuff, but it's still easily one of his best creations.

I do not know how many of you know this music video. This song is in French and is called "J'entends le loup le renard et la belette" by Manau.

 

Here is the translation of the chorus:

 

I hear the wolf, the fox and the weasel.

I hear the wolf and the fox singing.

I hear the wolf, the fox and the weasel.

I hear the wolf and the fox singing

 

 

 

Here is a song called Dirt Roads by Subseven:
