No Secret At All

Am găsit întâmplător explicaţia de mai jos:

Fly on the wall

Alludes to the position of being able to freely observe a situation without being oneself noticed.
This is an American phrase that originated there in the 1920s. The first citation of it that I can find is from The Oakland Tribune, February 1921:
"I'd just love to be a fly on the wall when the Right Man comes along."
It is now most often used in relation to 'fly on the wall documentaries', which are films of real life situations supposedly made without affecting the behaviour of the participants. It is de rigeur for participants in such films to comment along the lines of 'We just got used to the camera crew and after a while we just ignored them'. Well, maybe. I must say that if I had half a dozen strangers trooping around my house I think I would know that they were there.
Evident, nu de la asta a plecat denumirea acestui blog. Ci de la un vers dintr-o melodie U2 pe care l-am considerat perfect pentru pseudonimul meu şi pentru semnificaţia acestor pagini, care îmi prezintă gândurile, sentimentele şi diverse preferinţe artistice sau de altă natură, precum o expoziţie pe un perete.
Acestea fiind spuse, gotta go gotta go gotta go gotta go gotta go gotta go gotta go.....
