leftover turkey w/ attitude(s)

Gosh, growing up gay in the midwest really left me with few outlets for entertainment - one being Attitudes on Lifetime. The opener for this show was how to use leftover turkey, but I used to like it when they'd do fashion shows, cause then I'd have an excuse to go to my mom's closet and try on all her (overly) shoulder-padded dresses and gold and silver high heel shoes. Let's just say it was a beautiful mixture of 70's Disco meets 80's Working Girl. Enjoy...

nessun dorma

Nessun Dorma is one of the best arias friend chris sent me this link which illustrates just how powerful the song is. Of course, more than half the people in the audience have no idea what the tenor is singing, so I've listed the lyrics (via wikipedia) in italian along with the english translation. Enjoy! (p.s., I don't watch tv, so I've no idea what this show is about)

Il principe ignoto:
Nessun dorma!... Tu pure, o Principessa,
Nella tua fredda stanza
Guardi le stelle
Che tremano d'amore e di speranza.
Ma il mio mistero è chiuso in me,
Il nome mio nessun saprà!
Solo quando la luce splenderà,
Sulla tua bocca lo dirò fremente!...
Ed il mio bacio scioglierà il silenzio
Che ti fa mia!...

Voci di donne:
Il nome suo nessun saprà...
E noi dovremo, ahimè, morir!...

Il principe ignoto:
Dilegua, o notte!... Tramontate, stelle!...
All'alba vincerò!...

The Prince:
Nobody shall sleep!... Nobody shall sleep!
Even you, o Princess, in your cold room,
watch the stars, that tremble with love and with hope.
But my secret is hidden within me,
my name no one shall know...
On your mouth I will tell it when the light shines.
And my kiss will dissolve the silence that makes you mine!...

The Chorus of women:
No one will know his name and we must, alas, die.

The Prince:
Vanish, o night!
Set, stars! Set, stars!
At dawn, I will win!
I will win!
I will win!

living with an italian, part due

How stupid of me to completely forget about Ms. Heather Parisi...the Italian/American superstar (who never made it big here) she is doing Disco Bambina!
