Cruise ships seem very Americana.

- Not built in America
- Not designed in America
- Not crewed by Americans (well, not from the United States, anyway)

Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for thirty years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance.

Yeah, he gives all his videos awful clickbait titles, but they are mostly wholesome videos of people being really happy to hear their native language from an unexpected source.

As a native English speaker it's kind of sad that I'll never really experience that. Otoh, it's all the better for being the one doing the nice surprise.

The fact that he learns dialects so fast is the best part for me, like the Chinese-new-year vid was him going to town after loving around with Fujianese for like a week with a friend who was DECENT at it, just asking "what's the word for 'candy'?" and then, poof he's asking street vendors for candy and fireworks and they're like "OH.

They drove down from Canada through Oregon, then I think got greyhounds the rest of the way starting at San Francisco.

I don't think I've done a post in here about the Americana of Townes Van Zandt.

Townes was a dude very, very, VERY troubled in many ways about many lovely things in America and the story Americans told themselves long before our current self-hating zeitgeist. He wrote a lot of things from the 1970's (including a track called Pancho and Lefty that was covered several times over the coming decades), all the way until the 1990's.

Townes straight up drifted around the US, living in and playing in dive hotels and bars until his his demons caught up with him on New Years Day 1997. To this day he still has a cult following among Songwriters, Musicians, and Fans.

Sure, they're visually impressive, but a lot of posters find large avatars physically uncomfortable. Furthermore, the owners of large avatars often rely on their size alone and don't bother to develop more refined posting techniques.

Nah I have heard the name before, although I wasn't alive when they were a going concern. Didn't expect to see it on a random billboard of a street shot from someone who visited from abroad in the 70s though.
