Hot Eve at La Bellevilloise!

Tonight, June 15th, was the end of 'Paris Onze Bouge' Festival...
[Paris 11 or Paris onze, gives 'on se bouge', for let's move, let's swing...
In short,
let's say
Swinging Eleven !

FireTongue featured at La Bellevilloise tonight with 9 other
very good musicians
and... the whole concert was like a hellish
ride on a motor unit,
with the brass section embroidering their
phrases around
the leading beat which rumbled through your
stomach from the beginning
until the end !

Unfortunately, no one seems to have published a video of the performance, nor did I
because of memory card problems... but the atmosphere is the same in the following
videos. Enjoy it.

page, go to African Path.


in a whirl outside !
... just before the concert.

About Irish NO to the EU Treaty...

Why nobody asks the essential question :
Ireland would it be alone now rejecting the
Lisbon treaty if this one had been submitted
to a referendum in the other countries ?

Probably not.

French people said no in 2005, when asked by referendum and so did
These people are not against European Union, they just refuse
anti-democratic European Constitution, now called Treaty to be more
easily accepted.

"You don't say yes to something you don't understand" said
Hugo Brady, analyst at the Centre for European Reform thinktank.

John Barrys' point of view.

Fashion in NY streets

All style waistcoats & vests in NY streets.

For once, the new unisex fashion trend
seems to spread spontaneously
out of any fashion dictat.

A fashion addict view...

Catwalking on a Bottle Line !

G@tto's fond of feline records, especially from vintage shots !

17 year old Bianca Passarge of Hamburg dresses up as a cat,
complete with furry tail, and dances on wine bottles.
[June 1958].

Her performance was based on a dream and she practiced for
eight hours every day in order to perfect her dance.

What else ? Oh, yes, the Pasłęka (Passarge is as German as Bianca)
is also a river of the north of Poland !

Torino hosts the Coffee Roots...

An open air exhibition in Piazza San Carlo, Torino,
presents the work of 3 photographers who followed
the coffee trail... and made a book with the pictures
of their fabulous journey.

(ptoto by Fabrizio)

You're free to take a look to the Coffee Roots book, promoted by Lavazza.
I did it - in my quality of coffee lover - and found something curious in the Indonesian
coffee, the kopi
*luwak brand.

The Coffee Critic tells you the story.
You maybe want to fly to Java tomorrow and taste it. If you like it, there are two possibilities:
ou breed a luwak at home for your daily kopi or, which is easier but more expensive, you
buy your kopi at AnimalCoffee,

*Kopi luwak is a unique gourmet coffee
that is processed in the stomach of a wild
animal, after which it is hand collected
from the floor of the Sumatran jungle.

Hey, follow G@tto to the Polka gallery...

... in the nicest Oberkampf passage, the Cité du Figuier.
go straight ahead, but slowly, 'cause you are in a typical 11th district's passage,
full of french-slyle lofts, where many painters and sculptors live and work.

Here you are at the alley's bottom, on your left the Polka Gallery
with great pictures by Caron, Rizzo, McCullin and so on...

(Sorry, the gallery moved)...

... and that's all folks, for the moment.
Visit another Paris 11 alley : the cité Durmar...

Maybe The Times They Are A-Changin'

as Dylan said in 1967
and today...
Obama Wins Historic Presidential Nomination

By the way, both candidates, a "Woman" and an "African American" represent a real turning
point in american history.
Obama for President and Clinton as vice President could be the good choice to forget the
disaster of the Bush administration and restore the former US reputation.

Now let's wait and see what's going to happen in November...
