In a recent interview with @RollingStone, Stephen King revealed that he used to listen to Lou Bega's "Mambo No. 5" while he worked. “My wife threatened to divorce me. I played that a lot. I had the dance mix. I loved those extended play things, and I played both sides of it," said the writer, who also discussed his new novel, "Holly," AI and COVID-19 in the wide-ranging interview. What do you listen to while you work?

What caught my attention with the two songs above, are two cultural(?) differences between the Latin American (1: Yo vengo a ofrecer mi ❤️) and the European (2: ¡Resistiré!) project.

In contrast to the Latin American one, in the European project, there is not a single female instrumentalist and not a single child.

Did you notice?

What do *you* think?

Mere coincidence?
Or are we "first world people" only half as advanced, mindful and inclusive as we think?

No fue hombre, no fue parte de la movida punk de los 70, no quiso ser rica ni famosa. Luchó por sus colegas negros y LGTBQ+ antes de que existiera la sigla. Pero sí se arrepintió de algo: de haberles seguido la corriente, de haberse “descarriado” cuando ganó todos esos premios, todo ese dinero… Sinéad O’Connor se fue cuando quiso, homenajeando a su propio disco: I’m Not Bossy, I’m The Boss.

Last weekend, I went for a stroll to the Museum of #FineArts in #Valencia, in addition to taking refuge a bit from the heat wave 🔥 😳
.
Although I have seen some of these works 🎨 many times, I never get tired of these paintings. My favorite part of the building is the one that shows #traditional local #clothing from the late 19th and early 20th centuries

[FranceInfo] - #Désintox. Non, la Palme d’or n'a pas été "biberonnée" à l’argent public.

#JustineTriet, la réalisatrice de la palme d’or, « Anatomie d’une chute » a fait à Cannes un discours remarqué contre la politique du gouvernement où beaucoup l’ont jugé déplacé, en raison des aides accordées par l’État au cinéma français.

Ancient artefacts should ideally be returned to their country of origin. I'm sharing here so that more people can see it.

From Bristol Museum.

The first is:
Jar in shape of the maize god
Clay
When: Between 650-1,100 years ago
Where: Chimú culture, Peru, South America

The second isn't ancient so seems fine to be to be in England. It is:
Face chullu
About 30 years ago
Cusco region, Peru
