Today I am Monsieur des Rameaux. Too bad my local library's NetLibrary account dropped all of its Pimsleur titles (a dispute with the publisher, perhaps?), and I cannot learn to ask "What would you like to drink?" in French (for free, that is).
However, we can all enjoy (if you choose to enjoy) "Bastille Day" by the Canadian rock band Rush:
You gotta love a rock trio made of three virtuoso instrumentalists who checked their egos at the door, a polarizing vocalist, and a drummer who writes the lyrics. It's a bizarre combo, and it is awesome.
