shortened by... too many curries.
But she promised to keep on blogging with their journey's details

Happily there is Le Mur/My Space...
because I didn't pass by for more than a month.
Here is the last one,
featured by S.M. & J.F. on December 13th...
but who performed the November 15th Mur ?
I don't know, so I asked My Space...
Japanese dancer Eita Hasegawa (center), lives in Griset when in Paris,
(as a makeup artist)...
... painter Megumi Terao, coming from a japanese advertising school,
lives in Paris since 2001. Here some work from her Gallery.
ANY FANS ? . . .

After two evening parties at Les Coulisses Club in Montmartre,
Funky Saturday moves to Paris Oberkampf area
L'Antirouille - 5, rue Moret - Paris XI
on Saturday, December 13th
as well as each 2nd Saturday of the month,
under the leadership of DJ Moar,
Seeing that I have : I thought I can try and see if by chance I can have
more... so I've put the new Blogger Followers widget just under the blog's header... see it ?
Now what is Following ?
"The Followers widget is a great tool to help you grow your blog's audience.
Readers often visit a blog and enjoy it but fail to return. With the followers
widget you can get all readers to return and become a fan".
You can then enter your desired title for your Following widget. Once you
have chosen a title, click the orange SAVE button. You have now added the Following widget

Once your readers become followers of your blog, their profile picture will be displayed in your

Your account 'ParisPointGriset' on entrecard.com
has been deleted.
The administrator gave the following reason:
Nudity is not permitted on Entrecard.
Prudish, prim and proper deep America, mixing up culture
and obscenity !
At first sight - reading the EC message, I thought they definitely got some
problem lately with all those tweets all around - then I've read the reason
why my account was deleted : nudity ! (see previous post).
As a matter of fact, they deleted G@ttoGiallo's account
which means its 2 blogs !
Effectively, due to Africa's extremely hot climate, G@tto's
African blog risks to feature some nudity as well...
yes, they got a problem at EC.
Feb. 14/2010 update :
PPG has never had as much
visits as since its post on Shibari
and since EntreCard kicked it out.
Curious enough, visitors mostly
came from France.

A fascinating sight of Japanese traditions and codes through the
looking glass of film maker Xavier Brillat.
His film, Haruki Yukimura & Nana-Chan, (2006/38mn), featured
in many film festivals and recently broadcasted by arte TV channel.
Master Haruki Yukimura and model Nana Chan featuring Shibari's knotting and
unknotting art in an intimate atmosphere made of soft sounds and impressive images.
Agnès Giard, a counterculture journalist
who focused on deviant art and japanese
erotic culture, here in a video interview
with Xavier Brillat about his film...
Search the web...
- Hojojutsu, (Hayanawa, Torinawa), martial art.
- Kimbaku, Shibari, bondage art.

I've already showed you Eva's Brocante Shop, last year (*).
Now you can visit her through a nice video, but you'd better
go there, when in Paris and discover the shop by yourselves.
