"The picture was named B&B."

That reminds me...... I haven't had lunch with that cutie lately!

Enclosed is a picture of a statue next to the restaurant where the picture was taken for you sophisticated Europeans that think will have no culture in Dallas Texas (or the Vienna of the South as we Culturati refer to it). Honest it really is, and yes that is water running out of his mouth.

PS

I should have claimed the Brando picture. it is much less scary..... Last Tango was one the most depressing movies ever made and I have never been able to look at a stick of butter without shuddering since seeing it many years ago.

The day anything "cultural" may come out of the US it'll probably be from the black community...

From a European point of view nothing ever remotely "cultural" ever came from the US...

Lest you call capitalism a culture?

Hmmm..maybe a culture of garbage? A culture nonetheless.;)

till 10th June 2003 09:49 PM

capitalism ? imported from amerika? not even this. i doubt this.

Did you read Charles Dickens? My impression is modern capitalism is from great britain. industrialisation.

Yes, sir.

My point however was that there's nothing "cultural" in the US to be found.

Shallowness abounds,;)

Europes Carnival Mirror
 
It seems that Europe has for years been looking across the pond at the US and been alarmed, appalled, and disgusted. No wonder, as they gaze at the US they see them selves, grotesquely distorted, but very much still themselves.

Donít like US political hegemony, well guess were it came from... both our faults and the best of our ideals.

Were not all that different, none of us however seem to like to admit it.

frank,
from the european standpoint i agree.

what a pitty, the european standpoint is worthless these days.


but you now how things go today: they name it culture, and so it is culture... its the same with presidents, WMDs, freedom, law, justice.

Aldous Huxley did forsee all this.

No, it isn't.

The American point of view is worthless though...both from poltical and human POV.

Anyway you care to look at it it's ultimately: shortsighted.

Sooner or later they're going to realise that,;)

Texas or BUST!
 
HaHaHa, thatís good guys.:D But really, tell us, what does the average European really think of the US?

From my own limited perspective...
 
I think that they may actualy be very fond of us.

till 10th June 2003 10:30 PM

You mean this is a good opportunity to say it, because it will last not long until the thread goes to texas?





If you want to know you MUST divide in what we think about the citizens, the politicians, and the amerikan myth. land of the free and so on.



I suspect we think the same about your goverment as the most intelligent americans do.
