Three little maids from school are we

Three little maids from school are we
Three Little Maids From School Are We

[YUM-YUM, PEEP-BO & PITTI-SING]
Three little maids from school are we
Pert as a school-girl well can be
Filled to the brim with girlish glee
Three little maids from school!

 

[YUM-YUM]
Everything is a source of fun. (chuckle)

[PEEP-BO]
Nobody’s safe, for we care for none! (chuckle)

[PITTI-SING]
Life is a joke that’s just begun! (chuckle)

[YUM-YUM, PEEP-BO & PITTI-SING]
Three little maids from school!
Three little maids who, all unwary
Come from a ladies’ seminary
Freed from its genius tutelary —
Three little maids from school
Three little maids from school!

[YUM-YUM]
One little maid is a bride, Yum-Yum —

[PEEP-BO]
Two little maids in attendance come —

[PITTI-SING]
Three little maids is the total sum

[YUM-YUM, PEEP-BO & PITTI-SING]
Three little maids from school!

[YUM-YUM]
From three little maids take one away

[PEEP-BO]
Two little maids remain, and they —

[PITTI-SING]
Won’t have to wait very long, they say —

[YUM-YUM, PEEP-BO & PITTI-SING]
Three little maids from school!

[Chorus]
Three little maids from school!

[ALL]
Three little maids who, all unwary
Come from a ladies’ seminary
Freed from its genius tutelary —

[YUM-YUM, PEEP-BO & PITTI-SING]
Three little maids from school!

[ALL]
Three little maids from school!

Note: Just as The Mikado has essentially nothing to do with then-contemporary Japanese culture, thus by no means were these ever intended to be actually based on Japanese names. Yum-yum is obviously “tasty”. Peep-Bo is just an inversion of Bo Peep. And Pitti-Sing is, um, a “pretty thing”.

Three Coins in a Fountain Movie

Three hopeful American secretaries visiting Italy — newcomer Maria (Maggie McNamara), romance-seeking Anita (Jean Peters) and the more mature Frances (Dorothy McGuire) — fling their coins into Rome’s Trevi Fountain, each making a wish. Soon, Maria is pursued by a dashing prince (Louis Jourdan), Anita finds herself involved with a forbidden coworker (Rossano Brazzi), and Frances receives a surprising proposal from her boss (Clifton Webb). All three women vow to one day return to Rome.

History in Rome of throwing three coins in the fountain
The throwing of coins into the Trevi Fountain in Rome is a popular ritual that tourists from all over the globe just love to take part in. The practice of throwing coins in to the Trevi Fountain comes from a couple of legends that explains why so many people are so keen on coin throwing.

 

The first is that the throwing of a coin from the right hand over the left shoulder will ensure that you will return to Rome in the future.
The second legend was the inspiration behind the film ” Three Coins in the Trevi Fountain“. This legend claims that you should throw three coins into the fountain. The first coin guarantees your return to Rome, the second will ensure a new romance, and the third will ensure marriage.The municipality of Rome collects the coins from the Trevi Fountain every day to prevent them from being stolen. They have also created a fund in order to finance a supermarket for the poor people of Rome with the help of Italy’s Red Cross charity.The Trevi Fountain is one of Rome’s most well-known monuments; it became even more famous thanks to the film ” La Dolce Vita”. The entire area around the fountain is steeped in history with incredible architecture. The area is a great place for visitors to stay and there are plenty of accommodation options that will suit all budgets. You can stay in a backpacker hostel or a Rome boutique hotel depending on your needs.

Planes Trains and Automobiles – Singing Three Coins in a Fountain – 2018

Planes Trains Automobiles 2018
Planes Trains and Automobiles - Singing Three Coins in a Fountain - 2018

Planes, Trains and Automobiles” is founded on the essential natures of its actors. It is perfectly cast and soundly constructed, and all else flows naturally. Steve Martin and John Candy don’t play characters; they embody themselves. That’s why the comedy, which begins securely planted in the twin genres of the road movie and the buddy picture, is able to reveal so much heart and truth.

Some movies are obviously great. Others gradually thrust their greatness upon us. When “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” was released in 1987, I enjoyed it immensely, gave it a favorable review and moved on. But the movie continued to live in my memory. Like certain other popular entertainments (“It’s a Wonderful Life,” “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial,” “Casablanca”) it not only contained a universal theme, but also matched it with the right actors and story, so that it shrugged off the other movies of its kind and stood above them in a kind of perfection. This is the only movie our family watches as a custom, most every Thanksgiving.

Juliana Hatfield Three – My Sister

Juliana Hatfield Three - My Sister
Juliana Hatfield Three – My Sister

Juliana Hatfield, an indie rocker who got her start with the Blake Babies in the late 1980s, has had a lengthy career as a solo artist since the early-’90s alt-rock explosion. But her greatest success came on the one album she recorded with her proper band, called the Juliana Hatfield Three, which scored an alternative hit with My Sister in 1994. (Another song, Spin the Bottle, appeared on the Gen X-approved Reality Bites soundtrack.) Now, the Three is back with a new album, Whatever, My Love, released Tuesday.

Juliana Hatfield Three My Sister

Lyrics

My sister
My sister
My sister.
I hate my sister, she’s such a bitch.
She acts as if she doesn’t even know that I exist.
But I would do anything to let her know I care.
But I am only talking to myself ’cause she isn’t there.
My sister, I love my sister, she’s the best.
She’s cooler than any other girl that I have ever met.
She had the greatest band, she had the greatest guy.
She’s good at everything and doesn’t even try.
She’s got a wall around her nobody can climb.
She lets her ladder down for those who really shine.
I tried to scale it, but to me she’s blind.
So I lit a firecracker, went off in my eye.
I miss my sister, why’d she go ?
She’s the one who would have taken me
To my first all-ages show.
It was the violent femmes and the del fuegos,
Before they had a record out.
Before they went gold,
And started to grow.
I miss my sister.
I miss my sister.
I miss my sister.
I really miss her.

Call Them by Their True Names
Rebecca Solnit
Rebecca Solnit

Precision, accuracy, and clarity matter, as gestures of respect toward those to whom you speak; toward the subject, whether it’s an individual or the earth itself; and toward the historical record. It’s also a kind of self-respect… The search for meaning is in how you live your life but also in how you describe it and what else is around you.

Casual Trump, Rally Trump and Prompter Trump

The Three Types of Trump Voters – Dave Pell
The 3 Personas of Donald Trump-Morning Joe MSNBC Oct 2018 MSNBC

A clip from Morning Joe on MSNBC interviewing Anthony Atamanuik on the key to playing Donald Trump in Comedy Central’s The President Show.  Anthony reveals:

  1. Physically Trump  has three main body postures;  act like you have no gravity, keep your arms up, moving and waving all the time, and when you turn crane stiffly like an animal.
  2. Mentally you should abandon all logic, morality, and any sense of order.
  3. His three main personas are Casual Trump, Rally Trump and Prompter Trump.

The Three Types of Trump Voters

The Three Types of Trump Voters
The Three Types of Trump Voters

“And how worried you should be about each of them.”

  • The Apprentices

  • Canaries in the Coal Mine

  • The Enraged

The Apprentices: These folks admire Trump’s celebrity, his certainty, and his bluster. They don’t know much about the issues, so Trump’s habitual lying and refusal to learn the basic details about even a single subject is not something they particularly care about (or understand). He says he can solve the problems. Sounds good. They are, in a way, the voters America deserves. Celebrity-obsessed near-imbeciles who want Trump to win because he’s TV’s best show (although it was a lot funnier before they got rid of Little Marco and replaced him with that fat guy who just stands in the background looking like he’s about to throw up). He’s the show they can’t stop binge-watching. And come on, having Melania as the co-star is a major plus. For these voters, Trump’s presidency will be measured not against history, but against other forms of televised entertainment. And by that standard, there’s little doubt this will be the highest rated show on TV.

Danger Level: The existence of these folks can’t come as much of a surprise. Yes, the awareness of them depresses you every election season, but you can usually repress the bulk of your memories by Thanksgiving, and forget they even exist by Christmas. And fortunately, they can be easily distracted by other shiny objects. Worst case, we need to find someone funnier and with better cutdowns. Think President Jeffrey Ross.

Canaries in the Coal Mine: These folks have watched their fellow Americans on the coasts ride a tech, finance and real estate rocket ship, while their mortgages are underwater, their jobs have gone overseas or been automated, and the awareness of their critical value to the country has been systematically diminished. I’m a coal miner from Wyoming or West Virginia. For generations, my family has been powering America; literally providing the fuel that drove economic revolutions. And now, not only is my business shrinking, I’m being told by all the environmentalists, billionaires, and Hollywood types that my industry has been poisoning the world. That my sacrifices, my hard work and health risks, my father and grandfather, are all part of some historic wrongdoing. You have no damn idea how the rest of your country lives and works. You’re worried about climate change? I’m worried about dinner.

Danger Level: These people actually have a point. They’re just expressing that point through the wrong candidate.

The Enraged: These folks are pissed. You got your black community-organizing president. But then you had to stick it in their faces with the gay marriage, the political correctness, the stories that make our cops look bad and our criminals look like victims. F you and your political correctness, your self-righteousness, your gender BS, your Academy Award racial obsession, your thin skin, your campus trigger warnings, and all that shit about Caitlyn Jenner. This has gone far enough. Close the borders. Build the wall. And let’s remind everyone whose damn country this is. In general, these folks run the gamut from harboring an unconscious negative disposition towards members of certain demographics, to a whole-hearted embrace of good old-fashioned racism. In other words, they fall along a spectrum that runs from Archie Bunker to Benito Mussolini.

Danger Level: Look, I’m not gonna kid you here. Steam is escaping the pot, and it’s not unthinkable that the lid could blow off. And let’s be clear; Mitt Romney and David Brooks are not going to convince these folks with calm, reasoned arguments. You can’t push people to the limit for three decades and then reel them back in with a few speeches. It wasn’t unpredictable that we’d see a backlash to the historic breakthrough of the first black president and the long-overdue adoption of more progressive social values. It’s less predictable how that backlash will play out in the long run.
