Edelweiss Post

I'm an Italian girl who loves XVIII century and this is the blog in which I'll post my personal things!
Look what I found, papa!
Our readers

It’s for my novel world …

I’m searching for a good tune that can be chime-able from a clock tower (A bit of the tune is rang by the bell, then the hour chimes comes … like the Big Ben, but with a Jacobin twist!): I have a rather decent idea on which the piece may be if we chose Classical Music (It’s either “Singt der Grossen Bassa Lieder” or “Ein Madchen oder ein Webchen”, both by Mozart: come on! Does any music scream “XVIII Century!” more than happy Mozart tune?). I wanted to be the clock tower a little more … French.

Can you suggest me a pretty obscure song from the French Revolution (“Ah ça ira” and “La Carmagnole” could be used as last resources!) that could be good for that?

Did I really loose a few followers because I posted Mr. Feeny? I feel like people either don’t know, because they’re too young or just don’t remember how amazing this man truly is.

He is the perfect teacher. He doesn’t try to be their friend, although he is friendly with his kids. He is there to guide them, to protect them and encourage them. Sometimes that means he has to make the tough decisions, but it’s for them. His kids. So they can learn and grow. He believe in all of them.

Even on those who many people would have given up on. Like Shawn who was a trouble maker, but was really smart and creative. Or like Eric who seems to be stupid, but is really loving and dedicated to what he believes in. Mr. Feeny helped all of them grow and reach their potential.

Mr. Feeny may be seen as the old fuddy duddy at times because he wasn’t hip like Mr. Turner. But Mr. Feeny actually taught them life long lessons. It wasn’t just math problems to get them to pass the test. He taught them to have faith. In themselves and in each other. To always try, even if you couldn’t be perfect. And to never give up, because life is hard and bad things will happen, but it’s through those experiences that you pick yourself up and grow.

Mr. Feeny was also friggin hilarious. Some of the shit he had to put up with. He was just 1000% done with these idiots. He wasn’t always just a teacher. He was a person just like everybody else. And his sense of humor was great. Seriously. Watch the show. It’s gold.

I fucking love Mr. Feeny and Goddamn I always wished I’d had a teacher like him.

Mr. Feeny reminds me of my High School English teacher … we had her for only a couple of years, but she transformed her lessons in Class Therapy Group (we told her all our problems) and - even now that I’m at University - she’s always ready to give you good advice and make you giggle. 

Citoyens, Vouliez-vous une révolution, sans révolution?

Parody of the Historical Interviews to the French, following the line of my novel (Robespierre part removed for sensible audiences).

When I was upset or suffering from a terrible day, nothing cheered me up more, even for a minute, than watching this man’s films or watching his interviews online. There is no way you could not laugh or crack a smile and his comedic nature. Thank you Robin.
