How do you say “Renaissance Man” in Chinese?

Chris Smither is one of our favorite people. Not only is he a talented musician, but he’s a fun guy to hang out with, AND he’s fluent in a bunch of languages. He’s also determined that OTHER people should be fluent in more than one language, too – which is why he’s doing a benefit show for the Pioneer Valley Chinese Immersion Charter School. He stops by the bunker to chat, play some tunes, and show off his Chinese. And French.

    You are showing a lot of pictures of the undisclosed location of the bunker! Calculating the sun angle and plants visible outside the window Id say you are somewhere in Northampton. Just a deduction of course.

    Before our PVCI 3rd grader was a twinkle in our eyes, I was a fan of Chris. Haven’t been to a smoky Somerville (?) club in years but have started listening to the cds again. Thanks Bill for keeping the local thing going!
