    NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS 

    No news is good news, except in a newspaper. –Evan Esar

    Sept. 11 is NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS DAY. This blog is not a newspaper, so today I will go with all the NO NEWS I know because I know NO NEWS is GOOD NEWS so far as NO NEWS being GOOD NEWS goes. Assuming you are with me so far, let’s see where in the world NO NEWS takes us:

    1. No noticias

    2. Icksnay ewsnay

    3. Nao noticias

    4. Nessuna notizia

    5. Keine nachrichten

    6. Pas de nouvelles

    7. Brak wiadomosci

    8. Habersiz kalmak

    9. Nihil nuntium

    How many of those “No news” languages do you think you recognized? Take a fun-guess. Remember, this is not a test, so….

    Just to prove I’m not going to hog all the answers, here’s a clue to #2:

    So much No News for now; let us revel in the Good News.

    Modo vincis, modo vinceris.

      Great, Scott! As the post’s last line says in Latin, “You win some, you lose some” — and you won a majority.

      Only 5 for sure … is 7 Polish?
      This post intro sounds a bit like Abbott and Costello’s “Who’s on first base”!

        You nailed the “Pole” position, Kate — 7 is indeed Polish. I already gave away Pig Latin as 2. Here’s how the rest line up:
        1. Spanish 3. Portuguese 4. Italian 5. German 6. French 8. Turkish 9. Latin

        Clam kate, That’s one of my favorite routines. Our local radio station would always play it on opening day when I was a kid.

        That clip is from ROAD TO RIO (1947), one of the better films in the famous Bing Crosby-Bob Hope “Road” series.

      Best song ever is from The Wiz sung by the wicked witch. “Don’t you bring me no bad news.” I think it is Trump’s theme song.

      No news is good news. Or may be good news. After all, no one plans a murder out loud.

        Funny you should mention “murder out loud,” as it reminded me of a film called MURDER, HE SAYS (starring Fred MacMurray, who was the subject of my Aug. 30 post titled MAC). Here’s a funny scene from that film:

      The Singing Sophomores is another new group you’ve introduced me to. I did an online search and was pleased to see they were quite famous back in the day, and rightly so.

    MER-SEA 

    In comments to aĀ Jan.2Ā Peach of a post titled Fallen Angel, I included links to BEYOND THE SEA andĀ LA MER (English andĀ French versions ofĀ the sameĀ song).Ā Diana Peach’s preternatural post & both songĀ links can be foundĀ here: https://mythsofthemirror.com/

    I bring this up because that song is just one ofĀ several ‘beautiful’ sea songs I recall, and I thought I’d take a stroll down memory lane — or should I say, memoryĀ beach.Ā IĀ invite youĀ to join me….that is, if you don’t mind gettingĀ sand —Ā as I don’t mindĀ getting….

    And now let us start our stroll:

    Of course, there is more than one way to see the sea — you canĀ join the Navy:

    You say the Navy’s not your cup of sea?Ā Then let us end our strollĀ like Mr. Bean,Ā oblivious to all else, bidding gloriousĀ adieu to….

    Mer-sea beaucoup.

      Muse there are other great sea songs like ‘I’ll Be Seeing You’, ‘C C Ryder’ and ‘Good Night Irene’ that has the line “I’ll see you in my dreams”. But that’s enough out of me. I’ll see you later.

        Don, “I’ll see you in my dreams” is actually a song in itself, written in 1924, pre-dating “Good Night Irene.” It was one of lyricist Gus Kahn’s biggest hits — so much so that it served as the title of the hokey 1951 biopic directed by Michael Curtiz, starring Danny Thomas as Gus Kahn. Here is the Mills Brothers’ version:

      Mornin’ mistermuse,
      Of course you must realize that I live on the sea bound coast. . .
      The first video mentioned the sand on Havana beaches – gorgeous! We’ve been to several around Cuba and they are, indeed, as good as the lady sings about. šŸ™‚
      Lovely song selections!
      (and you were worried I’d unleash a sea of slights)

        Good afternoon, Carmen. Not only do I remember that you live on the sea bound coast, but I think I mentioned in a comment a few years ago that I’ve been in your lovely neck of the woods (and coast) on vacation….when it was slightly warmer, of course.

        Glad you enjoyed the song selections. I think the last one (from the film MR. BEAN’S HOLIDAY) is a visual delight, as well as an auditory one.

        As for your last sentence, I wasn’t worried in the slightest. šŸ˜¦
