  • Chorea sancti viti (Latin for "St. Vitus' dance") is an abnormal involuntary movement disorder, one of a group of neurological disorders called dyskinesias. The term chorea is derived from a Greek word khoreia (a kind of dance, see chorea), as the quick movements of the feet or hands are vaguely comparable to dancing or piano playing.

  • Listen to this song by the Italian songwriter Vinicio Capossela, with English translation of the lyrics.

  • I've already listened to this song about ten times. I love it! Thank you for including the lyrics in English.

    July 13, 2008

  • I'm happy you like it! I will suggest you another song soon.

    July 13, 2008

  • Yes, please do! I also included a link to the song in the comments section of yesterday's strip (the one with the little sad dog).

  • You have to say suggest to in English, Pro, ie. the ultimate recipient can't be a direct object. So:

    I will suggest another song to you. OR,

    I will suggest to you another song.

  • No bilby,

    you another song soon is the title. It's a Korean love song.

  • A likely story. As soon as your exam's over you plague our language with grammatical unpardonables.

  • Here's some Wing Music to listen to while you're packing, Pro.

    I'm thinking about including more music links for my strips. Theme music for the day! I love world music. Here's a Persian clip that I listen to often.

  • I just hope bilby's cupcakes are lactose flea.

    July 13, 2008

  • Prolagus, don't let bilby snow you. You do not have to say "suggest to", you can also say "suggest for".

    July 13, 2008

  • Wow! *dances in the snow*

    July 13, 2008

  • "I will suggest to you another song".

    sounds a bit archaic to me, too reminiscent of

    "Yea, verily, I will suggest unto you another song".

    I'd just omit the indirect object altogether; it's obvious from the context.

    July 13, 2008

  • Thank thee, sionnache.

    July 13, 2008

  • Bilby, where'd you get that cupcake? Has a surrogate cupcake bouncer been handing them out in my absence?

    *dancing excitedly*

  • It's dontcry. She's in full-on cupcake mode in the hope of exterminating every last whiff of marmite from her house.

    July 22, 2008

  • Okay, stand back, hot vanilla cupcakes coming out of the oven...

    Can you still smell it??

    July 22, 2008

  • What? No chocolate? ;->
