I love this man.



And, please folks. Learn the phrase Sturm und Drang. It will serve you well as you go through life. That and Bildungsroman.

Seeing Sturm and Drang in print and then hearing it spoken - I just wouldn't have equated the two. Thing is, there were no word in that that I didn't understand - okay, the fake wood thing would have thrown me. I was thinking 'it looks like a what kind of frog?'

Why, a wooden frog, of course.

I love that everyone in the clip gets thrown by consternation. OK, it's not in my everyday vocabulary, but it's not THAT unusual.

I'm thinking that maybe fashion designers don't read too many novels?

Yup, faux bois was a new one to me, too. The rest? Big deal. Those folks were merely betraying the depths of their ignorance.

I use "sturm und drang" constantly. CONSTANTLY. It's like my favorite three words.

heh.
