It's cold, rainy and windy... how to cope ?

Well, either you take the next flight to Bali...
or you take some brown rice OR bavette and
some frozen porcini mushrooms.
You mix them together in a pot and you stir...


or +
... you stir until you get this :


which is delicious but requires
half an hour,
or this :


which demands a shorter time and, holy c@tness, is maybe too good !
Now you'll probably forget the bad weather.

Got an iPhone ? Read this...

"How to catch an iPhone thief" is a modern "detective story", strictly linked to the Internet :

Sam had his 3GS iPhone stolen just as he was leaving his plane in
Los Angeles.

Since he knew who the thief was, but knowing he couldn't accuse
someone without evidence, Sam has conducted its own investigation.

His tools to locate the thief, once this one sneaked away, had been
Google, AT&T, MobileMe, White pages and USsearch.

<> back... but you'd better follow, step by step,
Sam's survey, full of noise and furor !

Look and think about... China today.

This movie was first released on Jan 21st 2010, and was banned 2 days later on all major
Chinese video websites.


DigiCha says : ... "Google’s recent moves in China have captured global attention about
censorship and Internet controls in China, eliciting protests from inside and outside China.
But there is a much more entertaining protest about China’s web controls circulating on the
Internet :
网瘾战争 War of Internet Addiction”. It is an hour long video, “shot” almost entirely with
in-game video from World of Warcraft, satirizing the government’s attempt to “harmonize”
China’s Internet with forced installations of “Green Dam Youth Escort” and the travails of
Chinese World of Warcraft players over the last several months.
It is quite brilliant".


(greatestyang)

This video contains a lot of Chinese history and pop culture references along with a lot
of internet meme only known to Chinese since this video is targeted at the Chinese
audience only.

500 Parisians in Anger...

About 500 people gathered on Saturday 16 in front of the Maison des Métallos
(a cultural institution) in Paris XI, in support to Rayhana
...


The actress and playwriter had been doused with gasoline on Tuesday 12, as
she walked into the theater to perform in her play
A mon âge, je me cache
encore pour fumer
(At my age, I still hide to smoke).

Despite the assault, Rayhana took the stage the same evening and kept acting
until the end, on January 16, as expected.

Since December 8, nine actresses appeared every night on stage at the Maison
des
Métallos, in the role of
nine Algerian women meeting in a hammam -
their
refuge against the world of men,
while conversing freely on their daily lives and
their difficulties in the Algerian society.



(berberia666)


The mayor of Paris Bertrand Delanoë, has told the Press this terrible event could
be linked to the subject of Rayhana's work.

___
I'm afraid this attack could also be related to the proximity with one of the most
fundamentalist mosques in Paris.

French New Wave has lost another of its founders

Eric Rohmer, 89, film director and writer, passed away.






A classic from Rohmer's "marivaudages"
Le genou de Claire (Claire's Knee), 1970



(okchicago)

Did I say "marivaudages" ?
"(le mot)... décrit un certain type de dialogue amoureux (dont les comédies
de Marivaux offrent le modèle), il renvoie à une certaine façon de vivre
l'échange sur le mode de la galanterie et du badinage. C'est dans ce sens
large que le mot est de nos jours le plus couramment employé pour désigner
une atmosphère enjouée et spirituelle, des rapports amoureux fondés sur le
jeux de la séduction, tels qu'on les trouve dans les films d'Eric Rohmer,
par exemple".

Eric Négrel, 1999, on "Le Jeu de l'Amour et du Hazard".
____

On January 14 Arte features Les Nuits de la Pleine Lune (Full Moon in Paris),
1984, with Pascale Ogier (that I met at a party in 1983).

More than Avatar's story, the 3D technology.

Eventually, a few days ago, I was dragged to see Avatar on a cold, very cold
evening. A Siberian wind was blowing on quai de Seine as we reached the MK2
movie theater, where we had to wait outdoor for twenty minutes prior to be
allowed inside.


It was so cold we even met a white bear, standing on a ridiculous but real
fragment of ice field
, floating on the Villette channel and he was shaking too,
his fur messed up with
the wind whirls.
My camera freezed in my hand, refusing to release the shutter,
so no bear
picture, sorry.


As a result, when I wanted a picture of the 3D spectacles, I had a blurry
effect
due to condensation, but I was there for special effects, after all.

Now, about Avatar... happily I was primarily attracted by the movie's 3D effects
which are fantastic and I can't wait this technology to be applied to interesting
issues
by a less commercial film director than Cameron and not necessarily
exploring virtual worlds.


Nonetheless, I liked the idea of avatars as a way to enter a virtual environment
and was charmed by those little creatures jellyfish-like, dancing in the air and
almost touching the audience in their seats, but
I disliked the antropomorphic
view of Pandora, where human feelings are copied and pasted on its inhabitants'
behaviour.
In short, the story is nothing but a fairy tale following the old good/evil
dichotomy,
with the final triumph of the good.

* Avatar massive launch through basic social media (Mashable).
* ... but hit by claims of racism (Telegraph)
* Have a scientific look at the film, with Copernicus' update.
* The year of 3D (boingboing).
* Latest 3D technology and LCD shutter glasses (engadget).
* 1935 anagliph 3D with red & cyan glasses was nice too...

One Easy Piece (and useful) from TechCrunch

(...) "Google launched its own DNS service last month, one of the main stated goals
behind the project was speed. The problem is that... G@tto... has no idea what a
DNS
server is, let alone how to configure one, or test how fast it is". (...)

Thomas Stromberg, a Google engineer based in Belgium, created Namebench,
a piece of software to find the fastest DNS server available for you to use.
The program is available for OS X, Windows, and Linux, and the entire thing has
been open sourced by Stromberg.


I'm sure this is enough to give you a reason to redirect you toward TechCrunch...
who knows better !

Yours faithful G@tto
