Interview of a Singing Lizard.

I like that video because it kind of glow, like a glossy magazine.
And of course, I adore the voice of this singer.
Who is he?

The Lizard:
He is a baritone from Djibouti, making a hell of a carrier entertaining Somalian pirates with western education and targets!!!

What a program!
Poor, poor guy!
Does he do that all by himself?
Shouldn’t I give him a hand?

The Lizard:
Yeah! He needs a seriously bulletproof vest because apart from those pirates who don’t like his singing, he is mostly put in danger by NATO!!!…

O! I see.
Well, I think I do.
And I’ll think about it and I’ll try my hand at it.
Except that, for the moment, I try to help a Chinese who, for reasons unknown to me, is singing in English AND Greek.
Is there such a huge Chinese community in Greece?

There, I am a little silly because I know for a fact that Chinese companies manage a large part of the port of Piraeus.
It is their main stop in the Mediterranean.
I also know that major trade agreements are being made between China and Morocco.

The Lizard :
Yes there is, every year it’s growing bigger and bigger and we didn’t even had any colonies there!
Imagine if we had!!!
2,500 years ago Alexander the Great had reached up to Tajikistan and created a city there, Alexandria Eshati, todays Hojad (meaning in the Tajik language exacty what “Eshati” means too that is “the farther most”) but China?! Never!!!…

329 BC, to be exact, Alexander conquered Kabul and went through the gorges of the Hindu Kush.
He was in pursuit of Bessus that he captured near the river Oxos River in Uzbekistan.
He advances to Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, where the people still wears the same headgear that the ancient Macedonians.
Here he captured the Sogdian Rock, also known as the Rock of Ariamazes, a Sogdian fort.
And there he founded Alexandria Eshati in the Himalayas!

Thank you very much for the information!
That Iskander!

Info :
Arabic name of Alexander, in Turkish, is Iskender.
In fact, in the derivatives, I like Sacha, the most, but I’ve never heard anyone calling Alexander the Great, Sacha, while Iskander, yes, I did!
Quite often, in Morocco.

The Lizard :
He was a great strategist, a conquerer and mostly (it must have been right after he sung “Overcast Sunday” and “O Sole Mio” to the Babylonians I think) all the people of the East still remember him and cherish him almost like the best man who ever stepped on Earth!!!
Nobody can say the same for Bush, Blair, Cameron, Obama, Sarkozi, Merkel, Berluskoni, Zapatero, Papandreou and the rest of the NATO gang country leaders, isn’t that so!!!

Speechless, I am.
That’s an achievement!!!

Info :
Why am I speechless?
Because I know nothing about the singing talent of Iskander.
While I know since a tender age about his dad, and even more about his horse.
Called Bucephales as that poor thing was afraid of his own shadow.
And that clever boy, realised that.
Hence, the name which means 2 heads.
I know also, that, neither I, nor my partner in this, have abused substances.
Because he is at work and, well, I hate altered states.
However, doubt invades me …
Is there not some confusion here?
Unless this is some identification.
Desire, of probable conquests, but with a noble aim, maybe a conquest by music …
or, a reconquesta?
Never mind!

The Lizard:
As far as my knowledge about history serves me well, I think that it was the Egyprians who liked “I won’t go to the Concert Hall” more when Alexander first sung it at the temple of Ammon Ra for the shooting of the “Upper Egypt Got Talent” show!!!
Ancient historian Josephus notes that the 3 Egyptian Priests that were the judges of the talents parading on stage, raved about it!
After that they named him a Pharao and they gave him Egypt to rule!!!

his song, you know.
Where you told me:
“And then you can’t sing.
Come on!
You have a wonderful voice.
And a lot of crooked humor… hehe!”
And I answered:
“Yeah, I don’t doubt the fact that I can sing.
I just wish I had Pavarotti’s or Fragoulis’s voive + their elegance of expression.
But I suppose that I want too many things, don’t I?!…”
And the rest is history!

JESSO (a bit distract):
My Chinese-Greek is again in front of my wall.
Wall and China are 2 words which go together well, no?
I think he is stating something interesting.

No Lizardly answer.

O!I was not aware of such a troika…
Troika, aren’t they supposed to be voted?
Then, very poor, but happy me, hasn’t got a telly.
And I think this is the clue to my ignorance.

Silenced Lizard.

I thougt Egypt was only very high when it comes to movies.

Silence of the Lizard.

Trying to put this wonderful conversation back or in another context.
JESSO: Lol, are you a Belgian in disguise?
Because it looks very much like it to me.
And I should know.

The Lizard :
No I’m not!
I’m an Antarctic leopard seal in human disguise who loves warmth and light more than I love the white in the snow, the blue of the deep sea or the underwater sound of imperial penguin rib bones crashed by my teeth!!!
Anyway, it sucks when black, white and yellow feathers stuff your mouth instead of meat so red, almost feminine!!!

That old story about our ancestors being fish-y invading you mind is making me a bit afraid…
(I had this is mind while asking)

I blocked at that and I was nearly unable to fix my attention on the rest…
Black yellow meat, red, mine…
O! Like in Jessamine?

The Lizard:
Oh come on Jessamine!!!
It’s just the inspiration of the day!!!
Well, I must admit that sometimes I go too sureal, don’t I?!

JESSO: Lemme see!
In fact, Omar Kayam invented al Gebra!
But Belgians, whatever the Frenchies say, invented surrealism.
So, deep down, Belgians are Persians.

This Greek being sometimes a little like a Belgian, so perhaps he is also a bit like Persian, isn’t it?
Secondly, and by the way, I always or almost always, thought that the Parsifal of Wolfram von Eschenbach was Persian, too.

Lizardly silence.

Could you sing a song Arabian-like on our very own Lewis Carollian exchange of today?

Then, an inexplicable move in the discussion happens:
The Lizard:
As far as I’ve experienced in my visit in Wallonie, Belgians are in Western Europe literary by mistake!!!
I don’t know about the Flemish people but you Walloons are so warm people!!!!

Then, you should go to Scotland.
Boy, I love that folk.
I love the Flemishes too, you know.
Wouldn’t I be utterly masochist if I was not?
I learn their language, I holidayed with them, I live in their middle.
And so what the woman who understand me the best and reverse IS Flemish.
