    I once bought an Ethan Mordden book, a Harry Potter and a Tebaldi recital.

    Next time I logged in, I was being recommended Dr Seuss, Andrea Bocelli, and a load of porn.

    Well, clearly “artificial intelligence” is improving by leaps and bounds. Or perhaps it was the “coq” that tipped Amazon off!

    The Rameau is a dead giveaway. It was a DVD, after all. All those ballet boys.

  • Zeke

    Well, he did buy a RIMsky-Korsakov. harhar.

  • Which brings us back to… wait for it… “Penetrating Wagner’s Ring” Isn’t it great how everything brings me back to that? To quote Famous Quickly, I could sing Le Coq D’or tomorrow -- it’s just a matter of color and tessitura.

    Well isn’t Platee about cross dressing?

    Whilst that is most amusing (it’s funny because it’s true), what tickled me more is the description you get of the book when you click on the item. Apparently it’s to inspire you to feel healthy and happy, and look forward to the vitality of the summer days ahead. Funny, I’m sure it would inspire me, and yet possibly not in that particular direction.

    Last time I looked at my Amazon recommendations, it was Marni Nixon’s autobiography, a book called ‘What would Barbra Do?’, something about Julie Andrews and book penned by Donna McKechnie.

    Apparently, I am that stereotype.

    MARNI NIXON’S AUTOBIOGRAPHY? WHY DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS?

    *wishlist*

    Marnie Nixon’s autobiog? Surely Audrey Hepburn ghosted it….

    i grow many cacti and succulents, and once i did a google search (early in the days before google got big) on succulents and one of the hits i got was “succulent girls of sweden” or something like that. how lucky was i?????

    sanford, i think you’d rather do something else than sing le coq. i can think of other verbs you’d do to it.

  • Lucky Pierre, you are so right! Alhough, at the rate I’m going, I’m never going to see another live one again. Thank my higher power for internet porn!

    sanford, in my neighborhood (very caribbean), they sell soup packets in groceries that are labeled “cock-flavored” (as to avoid any confusion, there’s a drawing of a rooster). should i get you a box????
