Bonne fête aux Ava !

In short, at a time when they could be exploring how more efficiency and better prices could be obtained... a few gigantic corporations have decided to increase prices in ruthless disregard of their public responsibilities.

Le jeu de l'entre deux tours

Le Figaro propose un petit jeu consistant à évaluer les chances des candidats restant en fonction des taux d'abstention ou de report de voix des électeurs ayant choisi les outsiders au premier tour…

"It's all in the reflexes" est le titre d'un album de musique 8-bit créé en hommage à John Carpenter. C'est gratuit.

Bonne fête aux Anthime, Zita ...et surtout bon anniversaire à Kty !

I was writing all kinds of positive and negative canons and weird inverted this and retrograde that and getting as spaced-out mathematically as I could and I was going "Wait a minute (laughs), who cares about that stuff?" I had always liked rhythm and blues so here I was stuck between the slide rule and the gut bucket somewhere and I decided that I would opt for a third road someplace in between.
Frank Zappa (From an 1972 interview to Martin Perlich. On giving up writing serial music.)

Bonne fête aux Alda, Paschase, Riquier !

Everyone likes to say Hitler did this and Hitler did that. But the truth is Hitler did very little. He was a world class asshole, but the evil actually done, from the death camps to World War Two, was all done by citizens who were afraid to question if what they were told by their government was the truth or not, and who because they did not want to admit to themselves that they were afraid to question the government, refused to see the truth behind the Reichstag Fire, refused to see the invasion by Poland was a staged fake, and followed Hitler into national disaster.

In the consciousness of the truth he has perceived, man now sees everywhere only the awfulness or the absurdity of existence and loathing seizes him.

Vivian Maier

Filed under: Galeries — admin @ 00:00:52

On sait peu de choses sur Vivian Maier.

De mère Française et de père Autrichien, elle est née aux Etats-Unis où elle a passé le gros de sa vie à s'occuper d'enfants, tout en s'adonnant, quand elle en avait le temps à la photographie.

Ce n'est qu'après son décès, en 2009, qu'on a mis la main sur un lot de 30'000 négatifs qui font depuis la joie des esthètes:

Bonne fête aux Adalbert, Egide, Georges !

It's impossible, Lois could never have Superman's baby. Do you think her fallopian tubes could handle the sperm? I guarantee you he blows a load like a shotgun right through her back. What about her womb? Do you think it's strong enough to carry her child?

Bonne fête aux Alexandre, Caïus, Epipode, Léonide, Opportune, Sôter !

Interviewer:
The notion of a "guitar solo" has preconceptions based on it; people automatically refute it because it's supposed to be self-indulgent or "for musicians." It's almost like things become iconographic and somehow lose their value for outsiders.
Zappa:
Well, who's fault is that? That's what _writers_ do. Musicians don't do that. The average person doesn't sit around thinking about "iconographic problems of a guitar solo."
