What is Slovenia Known For? May 17, 2011

Posted by Retired Geezer in Music, Women Ranting.

If you said “Petra Majdič”, Olympic Cross-country skiing bronze winner or Lipizzan Stallions, you would only be partly correct.
This is what I think of when I think of Slovenia:

You might even remember this.
You can go see them if you live in Wisconsin, they will appear at the Zelazo Center of the Performing Arts on June 18th, Milwaukee WI.

Normally I don’t like Acapella Music.
OK, I really hate it.

This I liked.

I liked their version of Africa by Toto better but Michael posted it 2 years ago.

They dont compare to the Maccabeats:

Hi Robert! I’ve seen you before.

It’s nice to have a Jewish lurker here. I’ve been to Israel a few times and, like you, loved the place.

Was that racist?

4. Michael - May 17, 2011

An Israeli acquaintance of mine once said to me that, but for the conflicts that are exaggerated by the news, Israel would be the top tourist destination on earth. According to him, you would have to take a number to get into the country, if the region were peaceful.

I think he was right. Because of the food, the scenery, the sacred ground for three major religions, and the ridiculous abundance of hot women.

Jeebers. Those IDF girls I saw manage to look really hot in their uniforms. There are now websites devoted to them. The girls out of uniform were way above the international average. Does a kosher diet cause big boobs?

Israel would be a great place if we just took Jews and Arabs and politics and racial grievances out of the equation and sold the property to Disney World or Six Flags. The whole tiny country should be managed by professionals as a combination of Epcot Center and The Vatican. Israel should be a theme park.

LOL no you have to try harder to be racist LOL!!!! 🙂

OH it certainly would be the top tourist destination on earth. You have religion, history, beaches, parties and lots of booze….not to mention the hot women – usually packing machine guns LOL.

Oh the women in uniforms packing heat…nothing like it anywhere! LOL

And really if you just focus on Tel Aviv the politics really doesn’t get in the way…not in the way of the parties going on in the Tel Aviv Port and beachfront.

When I was in Tel Aviv, it was like an entirely separate country vs when I was at the Golan, Jerusalem or Nazerth. The news and current events and conflict with their neighbors never registered. Even during the war in Lebanon or Cast Lead the party just went on. I heard this from friends and to even get a taste of it in a movie – I recommend Waltz with Bashir. It highlights the disconnect.

not in the way of the parties going on in the Tel Aviv Port and beachfront.

What interested me about those parties on the Tel Aviv beach is that it was not just young people getting drunk, like on beaches everywhere.

It was mostly families. You could see a group that was three generations, dancing in the sand. Further down the beach, another family.

Israelis may not be religious, but they are crazy devoted to family.

8. Robert - May 18, 2011

Well that’s because everybody is just about related to everyone else…unless you are a new Oleh.

Interesting story…we were driving up from Tel Aviv to Nazareth and on one of the main freeways a military jeep pulled up pretty close to us. Our Tour guide saw the solider in the passenger seat trying to light a cigerrate (unsuccessfully) so our tour guide jumped out the car…ran over to the jeep and light to soldier’s cigarette then came back to our car.

We just kinda looked at him..with a perplexed look which he obviously noted and he explained himself. That guy, while he might not know him..he might know his aunt..or his brother..or mother. They are all family.

Bones, everyone is probably drunk and hung over at Rosetta’s

I heard that the world is supposed to end on Saturday.

Saturday works for me. If the world ends then, it will save me 12+ hours of drive time back to O hi O.

14. daveintexas - May 20, 2011

I know where the shit’s gonna START on Saturday.

15. kevlarchick - May 20, 2011

It’s supposed to be at 6pm. So I’ll be gone before Geezer and most of you. I’ll send vibes from the other side so we can regroup there.

16. kevlarchick - May 20, 2011

I’ll be chillin in the NINTH circle of Hell, so don’t go to the sixth or fourth circle expecting a big hug from me.

As soon as I figure one out.
