Bookish Matters

The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.

Sundry Sunday—Spanish Music Videos

I spent last summer hiking across Spain (if you're interested, posts tagged "Spain"). I spent a lot of times in bars, either alone or with others, not necessarily for drinking, just that most consuming happens at bars. Sometimes they'd have TVs and a sort of hispano hablante MTV would play. The music videos fascinated me, and also kept me company. So picture me, a scruffy worn-out pilgrim, sitting alone in a bar with a plate of tortilla and a beer watching these videos.

This video I saw three times in Spain. It became a motif for my trip. I love the outfits, the catchy tune, and the fact that there are yellow arrows. On El Camino de Santiago, the yellow arrow is way important.

This one I find amusing and funny:

I like the simplicity of this one, and there's something charming about the faces that keeps me from looking away. This is the song that lately I find myself singing a lot.
