French

Aves le Temps

Avec le temps…
avec le temps, va, tout s’en va
on oublie le visage et l’on oublie la voix
le cœur, quand ça bat plus, c’est pas la peine d’aller
chercher plus loin, faut laisser faire et c’est très bien

avec le temps…
avec le temps, va, tout s’en va
l’autre qu’on adorait, qu’on cherchait sous la pluie
l’autre qu’on devinait au détour d’un regard
entre les mots, entre les lignes et sous le fard
d’un serment maquillé qui s’en va faire sa nuit

avec le temps tout s’évanouit

avec le temps…
avec le temps, va, tout s’en va
mêm’ les plus chouett’s souv’nirs ça t’as un’ de ces gueules
à la gal’rie j’farfouille dans les rayons d’la mort
le samedi soir quand la tendresse s’en va tout’ seule

avec le temps…
avec le temps, va, tout s’en va
l’autre à qui l’on croyait pour un rhume, pour un rien
l’autre à qui l’on donnait du vent et des bijoux
pour qui l’on eût vendu son âme pour quelques sous
devant quoi l’on s’traînait comme traînent les chiens
avec le temps, va, tout va bien

avec le temps…
avec le temps, va, tout s’en va
on oublie les passions et l’on oublie les voix
qui vous disaient tout bas les mots des pauvres gens
ne rentre pas trop tard, surtout ne prends pas froid

avec le temps…
avec le temps, va, tout s’en va
et l’on se sent blanchi comme un cheval fourbu
et l’on se sent glacé dans un lit de hasard
et l’on se sent tout seul peut-être mais peinard
et l’on se sent floué par les années perdues- alors vraiment
avec le temps on n’aime plus

Aves le Temps

With time …(in time)

Over time, goes, everything goes

We forget the face and forget the voice

The heart when it beats no more, it’s not worth going

Digging deeper, must leave it alone and that’s fine

With time …

Over time, goes, everything goes

The other one liked, we search in the rain

The other we guessed at the turn of a look

Between words, between the lines and under the fare

On oath that goes to sleep,

With time, everything disappears (vanishes)

With time …

Over time, goes, everything goes

Even the nicest memories that you got one of those mouths

At the gallery I rummaged in the death rays

Saturday night when the tenderness goes away only

With time …

Over time, goes, everything goes

The other who was believed for a cold, for nothing

The other to whom we gave wind and jewelry

To which one might have sold his soul for pennies

Before which it was crawling like training dogs

As time goes, so good

With time …

Over time, goes, everything goes

We forget the passions and forget the voices

You whispered the words of the poor people

Do not be too late, and to not get cold

With time …

Over time, goes, everything goes

And it feels like a lost horse bleached

And you feel stuck in a gambling

And you feel all alone, perhaps, but cushy

And one feels cheated by the lost years

So really

Over time we love no more.

Buona notte a te che sei lontana
(Good night, love

Louis Armstrong-Go Down Moses



Go down, Moses, way down in Egypt land
Tell old Pharaoh
To let my people go.

Now when Israel was in Egypt land
(Let my people go)
Oppressed so hard they could not stand
(Let my people go) 

So the Lord said:
Go down, Moses
way down in Egypt land
Tell old Pharaoh
To let my people go.

So Moses went to Egypt land
(Let my people go)
He made old Pharaoh understand
(Let my people go)

Yes the Lord said:
Go down, Moses
way down in Egypt land
Tell old Pharaoh
To let my people go.

Thus spoke the Lord, bold Moses said,
(Let my people go)
If not I’ll smite your firstborn dead
(Let my people go)

‘Cause the Lord said:
Go down Moses 
Way down in Egypt land
Tell old Pharaoh
To let my people go

Tell old Pharaoh to let my people go

Hugh Laurie – Saint James Infirmary


St. James Infirmary Blues” is an American folksong of anonymous origin, though sometimes credited to the songwriter Joe Primrose (a pseudonym for Irving Mills). Louis Armstrong made it famous in his influential 1928 recording.

I went down to St James Infirmary
Saw my baby there
She was stretched out on a long white table
So cold, so sweet, so sweet, so fair

Let her go, let her go, God bless her
Wherever she may be
She can search this whole wide world over
She won’t ever find another man like me

When I die, bury me in straight laced shoes,
A box backed suit and a Stetson hat
Put a 20 dollar gold piece on my watch chain;
So the boys’ll know I died standin’ pat 


Honeybee virus - Varroa mite spreads lethal disease (from BBC News)

Honeybee virus – Varroa mite spreads lethal disease (from BBC News)  (click to access the article and video)

A parasitic mite has helped a virus wipe out billions of honeybees throughout the globe, say scientists.

A team studying honeybees in Hawaii found that the Varroa mite helped spread a particularly nasty strain of a disease called deformed wing virus.

The mites act as tiny incubators of one deadly form of the disease, and inject it directly into the bees’ blood.

This has led to “one of the most widely-distributed and contagious insect viruses on the planet”.

Today’s Birthday: FRANCIS HARRY COMPTON CRICK (1916)


Francis Harry Compton Crick (1916)

While working in a research lab at Cambridge after WWII, Crick helped discover the molecular structure of DNA. It was one of the most important scientific findings of the century, and he shared the 1962 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his work. He also clarified how cells use DNA to build proteins. During WWII, he was deflected from his original course of research after a bomb hit his lab. Crick later said he had been studying “the dullest problem imaginable” at the time. What was it? More… Discuss
