Might need some clarification – “Wicked” can mean “evil” but to the Brits can also mean “mischievous”. In North America the term “trickster” is also used, partly to remember the tricksters of folk tales such as coyote, raven, brer rabbit, anansi, loki, etc., who play pranks on others for the purpose of enlightenment, or to teach an important lesson.
Brings back happy memories of grandma, who was the British form of wicked. 🙂
You missed another highly relevant meaning here.
– US —> really,very, extremely
– UK —> cool, good, great, funky
– France —> (as ‘terrible’) great
How could I forget? Thanks Ben!
And that’s an interesting comparison too.
just because he’s wicked doesn’t mean he’s not right 😀
A label is just that. Which is to say I do not disagree. For who am I after all? 🙂
Ah, what more can I say, Ms. Music? A nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse. 😉
Such significant gesture, scene, just like the well-known painting of the subject. Yes, dear Ray, to me, this is what the authentic ART means to me !!!
