As a matter of fact, the music is from Guem's Le Serpent
(The Snake). I knew him in the 70th
as the Zaka Percussion's
at the American Center, and I still have pics of them
in my records

(by Anxo)

This is the latter Guem, but I remember the former Guem acting exactly
the same... in 1978.

Mona Lisa, aka Lady Lisa del Giocondo

Giorgio Vasari seems to have been right when, in 1550,
he called La Gioconda "Lisa Gherardini del Giocondo",
wife of Francesco del Giocondo.
According to some 1503 records found at the Heidelberg
University by Armin Schlechter, Mona Lisa identity
is eventually confirmed.

Leonardo da Vinci, La Joconde,
77x53cm - Paris, Musée du Louvre.

But the mistery still seems unfolded...

... following a Feb 3/2011 update :

Italian researchers who specialise in resolving art mysteries, pretend the disputed identity
of the model for Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa... was a man.

Suppositions on a film concerning Dylan.
(Todd Haynes, 2007)

Bob Dylan's life burst open through...
Marcus Carl Franklin /Woody Guthrie (this boy got a future)
Cate Blanchett /Jude Quinn (the gal is a chameleon!)
Christian Bale /Jack Rollins
Heath Ledger /Robbie Clark
Ben Whishaw /Arthur Rimbaud (because "Je est un autre")
Richard Gere /Billy the Kid (gosh, such an icon has nothing to do there, even as Billy the Kid)

Be trendy, marry a president.

Une tendance qui semble s'affirmer.

You are an ex-top model ?
Marry a president !
Look around you, there are still many left.

- Bruni, former top model, then singer, then the Elysée...

- Campbell, former top model, then journalist and then... Miraflores?

Traitement des ordures à l'Italienne.

Prodi : "L'emergenza rifiuti è una vergogna..."

Mais entretemps un autre ferry-poubelle est parti pour Olbia (Sardaigne) où l'accueil sera
sans doute aussi chaleureux qu'à Cagliari et un autre chargement est prévu vers la Sicile.

A Cagliari, les opposants à ce type de livraison ont assiège toute la nuit la villa du président
de la Région autonome sarde, Renato Soru, qui affirme ne pas avoir eu peur.
Je suppose toutefois qu'il a
eu chaud...

Sightseeing tour in Naples or "see Naples and die".

An attractive idea: visit Naples by night !

"Coup de Cœur" at 4 am...

... because a friend's friend invited an Inuit family to spend 1 month in Paris.
The two daughters will probably sing traditional throat songs, katadjak, in my fief,
maybe at "La Locandiera" (145, rue Oberkampf, Paris XI) - If it snows...
which is possible this winter.


(Isuma Prod)

Katadjak, or throat-singing, is a form of vocal-verbal art common to many (but not all)
Inuit (Eskimo) cultures.
Inuit throat-singing is done in the following way (click...).
