A generous friend who is moving to France gave me this antique lithograph a couple weeks ago. According to Oxy's website this poster hung in almost every bar in France, and it inspired Picasso, who had a copy hanging in his studio.

Also the term "Pontarlier glass" was coined by Frenchman Phil based on this poster.

This has always been my favorite absinthe poster, and since it was a surprise gift from my friend, it makes it very special to me. I will look at it and think of how I miss him when he moves. I hung it next to the pressed spoon copper pieces that Kirk gave me. heart.gif

I've always liked that painting, especially for the louche of the absinthe. The painter didn't lie, either:

Spoon-licking good. Pernod from shortly before the Great War. I can taste it in my brain after, I don't know, must be almost ten years.

I was wondering who else some of had those.

They're quite striking.

Someday I want to try out this "having friends" thing. You're a lucky guy, that's a beautiful poster. I'm jealous.

And I some of what want Pro's good grammar makes too.

My friend has been living in San Francisco 4 years I think. 2 or 3 years ago he said he sent me a PM at WWS and I completely blew him off, because, you know, WWS. I don't even remember that. I was finally encouraged to meet him by sbmac like 3 months ago, and we have met several times since then to drink and gossip and eat. We actually have a lot in common, even though he is less than half my age. Now he's moving to France in 3 weeks and I am really kicking myself for not making an effort to meet him earlier. He has become a good friend and I will miss him like hell. And I was really touched and surprised when he gave me such an amazing gift! The only consolation is, I will get to see him (and his super nice French partner) next time I'm in France.

Not even for a moment did I consider it might be Crosby moving to France. Some things are completely inconceivable.

C'est juste, certaines personnes apprécient la saucisson Viennoise.
