The Queen looks at you with her impala eyes

Dominique Jackson is probably the most elegant queen in America. When you watch her walking in the street or doing the catwalk in the ball room in “Pose” you’d better surrender to her charm, say nothing and admire her womanhood.

Yesterday, Ms Jackson- Elektra Abundance– made me understand the lyrics of “Private dancer” as she was doing her job in a peep show.

Private Dancer
Tina Turner

All the men come in these places
And the men are all the same
You don’t look at their faces
And you don’t ask their names
You don’t think of them as human
You don’t think of them at all
You keep your mind on the money
Keeping your eyes on the wall

I’m your private dancer, a dancer for money
I’ll do what you want me to do
I’m your private dancer, a dancer for money
And any old music will do

I want to make a million dollars
I want to live out by the sea
Have a husband and some children
Yeah, I guess I want a family

All the men come in these places
And the men are all the same
You don’t look at their faces
And you don’t ask their names
I’m your private dancer, a dancer for money
I’ll do what you want me to do
I’m your private dancer, a dancer for money
And any old…

Captain Hook (J.M.Barrie, Peter Pan)

He was never more sinister

than when he was most polite,

which is probably the truest test of breeding;

and the elegance of his diction,

even when he was swearing,

no less than the distinction of his demeanor,

showed him one of a different cast from his crew

James Barrie, Peter Pan

“The types of suit every man should own” (Fashion Beans)

Extract of the article 

“The types of suit every man should own”

by

Fashion Beans editors

“There are few guys who don’t aspire to one day own a walk-in wardrobe filled with every type of suit, but we’re often in the dark as to how to get there. For the remainder, suits are a necessary evil: an insurance policy for professional and social occasions that you want to spend the bare minimum on.” (…)

2/the Plain Grey two-button suit

3/the Dark Double-breasted suit

4/the Dinner suit

5/the Summer suit

6/the Check suit

i ´ ve got a crush on language mannerisms

25 May 2017

i ´  ve got a crush on language mannerisms like these:

What are … Proverbs, Sayings, Aphorisms, Idioms, Puns, etc.

via smart-words.org

Here is a list of definitions (with examples), which helps to understand the difference between these terms.

It is common to find different words existing in English to represent similar ideas. It is an frequent characteristic of a language with a long history. There are a number of specific types of saying, of which proverb is probably the best known. However, the distinction between them is often pretty vague.

Adage.- An aphorism that has that has gained credit through long use.

Example: Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

Aphorism.-A tersely, memorable phrased statement of a truth or opinion; an adage.

[from Greek aphorismos, from aphorizein, to delimit, define. Apo- (1. Away from; off; Separate. 2. Without 3. Related to) + Horizein (limit, boundary)]

Example: He’s a fool who cannot conceal his wisdom.

Cliché.- An overly commonplace, banal or trite saying, expression or idea. Sometimes the terms stereotype or platitude are used as a synonym.

Clichés can be defined as preconceived twists, hackneyed and worn out by too frequent use of images, modes of expression, speech and thought patterns. These are often used thoughtlessly and without individual conviction.

Example: All Americans are very open.

Epigram.- A concise, clever, often paradoxical statement, thought or observation; sometimes expressed as a short, witty poem.

Example: The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it.

Epithet.- A descriptive term (= word or phrase) used to characterize a person or thing, that has become popular is commonly understood.

Example: The Great Emancipator — as a term for Abraham Lincoln. (…)
