An Apple a Day, takes... the stress away.

As a Macaddict, I am pleased to introduce you to...
the Apple Museum !

30 years of Apple in 2 minutes...

Take a look at the design and progression of Apple computers from the Apple II
to the current models.

This video shows the computers Frensleven has kept - for one reason or another -
morphing from one design to the next.

It's a little over 30 years in a little over 2 minutes.

Last Viswanadhan's "Retour aux Eléments"...

... to be featured at Centre Pompidou [salle ciné 2]
on June 29/2010 - 7:30 pm
- [90'].

sand, water, fire, air, ether...

A Méroe Films/Centre Pompidou co-production, in association with Arte-France
La Lucarne, with the support of CNC and Procirep

[Below, a few snaps taken on arte-tv].

In 1976, the painter Velu Viswanadhan began a cycle of films on the five elements: sand,
water, fire, air and ether - wich, according to Vedic principles, constitute the universe.
They are the starting point of a journey across mythical, historical and everyday's India.
Over thirty years later, this new film is
a flashback and a rediscovery of the premises, and a
statement of what India is nowadays. Viswanadhan filmed each element in itself : the eddies
of the Ganges, the lightning storm, the wind in the paddy fields... but also how humans use
these elements : fishermen casting their nets, blacksmiths clapping iron, tea merchants boiling
water... The sounds of nature and life are the sole film's soundtrack : the sound of the waves
dying on the shore and the crackling of a fire do replace speech. The repetition of images and
their slow pace let viewers immerse themselves in nature, in a sense of eternity.
[Translated from a text by Aamil/arte-video]

Thanks to all Viswa's fans,
yours faithful G@tto.

Viswanadhan interviewed at the 51st

A new sushi bar in my fief...

There was no crowd, but they had just opened tonight.

The place is pleasant, the food is fresh, the staff very kind and the menu
is classic, but their prices are competitive in this area.

Many bars in the Oberkampf area are equipped with huge

Graffiti Street in Paris/Belleville...

If you need a wall, (so you can escape)...
try this one in the Belleville Paris district.

This colorful corner of Belleville has obviously been identified and chosen for the
filming of 'Belleville Story' as well as other very peculiar spots in the neighborhood,
like this popular 'bazar' where everything is sold at 1 €

Adam wrote an interesting post about this street on his blog 'Invisible Paris'.
