Miss Doodle Metro Overdose


Copyright ©estandrea - All rights reserved
Miss Doodle's Secretary is adjusting to this new, relatively white paper she uses, and it's rough quality, (compared with the very smooth and yellowish paper of the Moleskine notebooks she used before). The colors show up nicely, it's the white background which feels 'wrong" at the beginning.
While portraying Miss Doodle and this round tourist Lady, the secretary thought of a silly song she heard as a child (in 1961, she was 4:), sung by an American singer who was quite famous in Germany at that time, Bill Ramsey. I wonder if he ever had any success in the US but in Germany he really was very very popular. It went like that: "Das ist die Zuckerpuppe aus der Bauchtanztruppe von der ganz Marokko spricht..." which means: "That's the sweetie of the belly-dance company everybody in Marokko is talking about"....
You don't know if you should cry or laugh, if you hear this...If you'd like to get a glimpse into the state of lobotomized mind Germany found itself in during the 60ies, you can find the song on youtube.....:)

Never heard of this singer. And i wonder why there are only 5 more days of metro. interesting about the paper and I notice Miss Doodle's copyright came through. wow.

I don't know this singer, either. I do have to say, though, I love this term "the lobotomized mind". Sometimes, I feel like I have a lobotomized mind!

I like the way these paintings are looking on this paper, though, Secretary! It is different, but it is nice and bright, too.

You hang in there Miss Doodle...it is not too long yet until you can have a change in pace! Just think you will not even have to look at a metro station for a few weeks! :-)

Wonderful paintings...I love these!

Never heard of the song or artist. Sound cute.

I have missed Miss Doodle. So glad she made an appearance and I came visit. She must be very, very busy -- with her book, perhaps?
