"Pongáio" was the name my Aunt Mona gave to a long, green, cool room where we gathered at her home —
replete with comfy chairs, a rocker, sewing machine, sewing goods, beautiful beads, shelves, books, bibelots, photographs, odds'n'ends, mementos of a life, treasures —
a gathering of all the useful & 'useless' things that so make life a pleasure.

Les Revenants

This week finished watching the season of the series, "Les Revenants", (The Returned).
As is the new usual, googled it and found interesting info, including that it's only about a year old! So, very new!
I ususally get excited about some music, tv or movie, only to find out it's quite some years old.

One of the best parts, or "characters", due to its presence and contribution to the impact of the series, is its music/soundtrack. Like in Fargo, which would not be the movie it is without its soundtrack.

A little more googling and found the soundtrack...

A group, Mogwai, that (as explained above) I hadn't heard of, composed the music specially for the soundtrack.
Gizmo, the Mogwai
(see those almost gross-out fingers and toes?
I believe they're human ones, but weird over all)

A Mogwai to me was, up to this date, the furry, overtly cute but somewhat-off-putting (those weird fingers), creature from which the Gremlins were spawned in the 1984 movie.
(Well, that certainly dates me!)

I'm in the direct replay mode for this album; quite enjoying it.
Does nicely as a soundtrack for trying to working on my accounts.
