PI DAYS (+ LAST SUNDAY MINI REPORT).
aaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh !!!!!!! this Lyon town rules !
and by the way, last sunday was really nice and relax, mainly due to my pal Fred (and her sweet pregnant girl) (see, i did it, fred, uh...) who took care of me (well, sort of, if you except this train station story) (and i call him "pal"... pffff) while some big students event happened there in Lyon.
Vanyda ("l'immeuble d'en face", "l'annee du dragon"), Nancy Pena ("le cabinet chinois"), Guillaume Long ("comme un poisson dans l'huile", "les sardines sont cuites", and the soon to be published "Swimming Poule mouillee"), Nicolas Otero ("amerikkka") were there for an intra-comics mini festival, too, as the people taking care of the real cool zine called "Rhinoceros contre Elephant" ; watch these guys, many things to come from their own batcave, and on some of the best quality (paper, printing, look of it all...) indy books around here.
we spent the whole day hanging around the festival location, under the sun, which was cool. and even the 6 hours of train ride worth it. or is it ? 8)
well, for eastern french residents, here's something you don't wanna miss, which is a part of the Nuits Sonores, musical event of the year in the Lyon area.
