New year resolution number 3165084 : try to find some completely and futile titles for my posts on the blog. Will do my best, believe me.
in today's shit : parisian rendez-vous, US government sucks part. 32136584, mass-creation web-related information/visual art project, another nice book to read, parts of my life, and some... some of the greatest idea of 2005 ! Uh... so far...
- friday nite ! once again, for those parisians of you guys, here is some shit to do this very friday... which means, tonite !
What ? A night of Solid Steel... who Ammoncontact (see previous posts on this blog), Daedelus (LA represent, from the same galaxy as Busdriver or Radioinactive), and Jon More (from NinjaTune' mythic Coldcut) ; where ? Triptyque (142 rue de montmartre, m° bourse). When ? 9 pm. How much ? 10 euros before 11 pm, 13 after.
- for all of those who still don't know that US Government sucks hardcore, here's another proof, as US customs seized parody comics Stripburger :
"U.S. Customs seized copies of the anthology Stripburger (on their way to Top Shelf), charging that the stories "Richie Bush" by Peter Kuper and "Moj Stub" (translated from the Serbian as "My Pole") by Bojan Redzic constituted "clearly piratical copies" of registered and recorded copyrights.
The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund has retained counsel to challenge these seizures.
We'll have more to report on this soon. For the full story, click here". (thanks to Chris Starros from Top Shelf).
- "Every hour, 10x10 collects the 100 words and pictures that matter most on a global scale, and presents them as a single image, taken to encapsulate that moment in time. Over the course of days, months, and years, 10x10 leaves a trail of these hourly statements which, stitched together side by side, form a continuous patchwork tapestry of human life.
Each hour is presented as a picture postcard window, composed of 100 different frames, each of which holds the image of a single moment in time. Clicking on a single frame allows us to peer a bit deeper into the story that lies behind the image. In this way, we can dart in and out of the news, understanding both the individual stories and the ways in which they relate to each other.
10x10 runs with no human intervention, autonomously observing what a handful of leading international news sources are saying and showing... With no human editors and no regulation, 10x10 is open and free, raw and fresh, and consequently a unique way of following world events. In 10x10, we respond instinctively to patterns in the grid..." says some kind of nuclear freak constantly posting awesome shit on DPH. 8°
That's it. Oh, and because you all asked for it, here's the book of 2004 :
"Habitus" from James Flint ; yeah, i know, it's not exactly some 2004 book. Well, its french pocket version is a 2004 release, hotdammit ! 'Nuff said, go and read it.
I will not post this much in the very next days, but i gotta some pretty good reasons :
- First, i will get the opportunity to see one of my favorite movie ever at the cinema, in a real theater, in a real big armchair, and not on my cheap Ikea futon, in front of a real little tv.
"Some came running", from Vincente Minelli, 2 hours of pure genius' juice from 1958, finally come to my town in a new copy... Cool as fuck !
- In the same week, some stuff from Mankiewicz, Fellini, Kurosawa, R.Wise and F.Lang, a little try with experimental cinema with Paul Shartis, and finally those great 2004 movies i missed (or that i want to re-watch), courtesy of the annual Telerama festival. Right now, and because i'm a poor looser, i got something like 11 movies to (re-)watch from january the 19 to january the 26, including Sophia Coppola' "Lost in translation", Wong Kar Wai' "2046", Assayas' "Clean", Fatih Akin' "Head on", Nuri Bilge Ceylan' "Uzak", Jonathan Nossiter' "Mondovino", and finally Michel Gondry' "Eternel sunshine of the spotless mind", that i missed when's out cause there was only some french (bad ?) dubbed version... anyway.
- ...Cause after january the 26 comes this year Angoulême International Comics Festival.
- ... and cause i gotta 3 deadlines completely fucked up, including one for some north american project that i really wanna see, so if it means "no more bloggin' for the following days"... no more bloggin for the following days !
But wait, i gotta some kind of Subutex solution here : in a few days, some billions words from november/december 2004 that were never posted. Fresh and never-seen before ! yeah, it's some new fresh concept i'm creating right now : p o s t b l o g .
it's about posting something that is pretty old, or at least, pretty late, which means posting something that nobody cares, even less than the usual, current shit.
something like "oh, we hope we'll all have some fun for this Birthday party we do at home at mid-december !", but posting it, right here, right now.
or complaining that it's rainy in november, and posting it in july.
now it's a real fresh concept, i tell you !
more seriously : i just found some notes from back in november/december that i totally forgot to blog ; do i have to blog it or does anybody cares ? uh ? as Kylie says, what do i have to do ? hum.
readers ! YOU'll make the difference !
reader ! YOUR VOTE is IMPORTANT !
reader ! you'll CHOOSE !
reader ! i really, really GOTTA go to SLEEP right now. 8)
See you maybe before Angouleme, maybe while Angouleme, maybe after Angouleme. 8)
Peace, i'm out there.
