Ivo Caprino, Norweigan puppet film maker, died this day 15 years ago aged 70.

 

Not a name I recognise. Hey, he's got a Wikipedia article.The titles there mean nothing to me, mind.

 

ETA: this reminds me of a remark Hugo Brandt Corstius (disguised as Piet Grijs) made about Norwegian playwright Ibsen: "Wrote plays in Norwegian. That didn't help; they got translated."

That's a euphemism, innit?
Yeah - and they're some etchings.

Indeed.  It should also be plural, if rendered in French:  "passerelles parisiennes"

 

Or it could be masculine, but must still be plural:  "trottoirs parisiens"

 

So very much simpler to stick with the English adjective "frogs".

No, no, no.  'Frogs' is a noun.

Moore was the only time I made it to the famous Apollo in Glasgow , night before my English 'o' grade in 1984. Actually that would make it my Higher.


Wasn't as good as I'd hoped , would've far preferred Rory...

So very much simpler to stick with the English adjective "Parisian".
