  • #2 - Skins

    25 July 2009 ( #TV Shows )

    Skins is a British TV show about a group of friends, all students in Bristol. It's quite different from what already exists on the life of adolescents/adultescents because: - It's British, so the accent is adorable, the phrases are different (bummer!)...

  • #3 - Kings

    26 July 2009 ( #TV Shows )

    NBC's TV show Kings is "a contemporary re-telling of the timeless tale of David and Goliath. This series is an epic story of greed and power, war and romance, forbidden loves and secret alliances -- and a young hero who rises to power in a modern-day...

  • #4 - One Fifth Avenue

    03 August 2009 ( #Books )

    I've just finished reading One Fifth Avenue from Candace Bushnell (author of Sex & The City, Lipstick Jungle...). I had never read any of C. Bushnell's bestsellers, so I was quite surprised to read some very graphic content from time to time, but otherwise...

  • #5 - DIY Geekily - Music

    05 August 2009 ( #Technology )

    I've just found out about a new "website" on GeekSugar this morning. It's called Drum Set. Basically, you use your keyboard to make drum-like sounds. It's a very cool website you quickly become addicted to... I've just spend 20 minutes inventing tunes...

  • #6 - Millenium

    17 August 2009 ( #Books )

    I just finished the Millenium trilogy , and I must say it had been a while I hadn't been that obsessed with a story. The first book has already been turned into a movie, which is really, really good. The cast is perfect, the sounds, images and atmosphere...

  • #7 - Duplicity

    19 August 2009 ( #Films )

    The other day I discovered Duplicity, with Julia Roberts & Clive Owen. I loved it, for many reasons: - I like stories about spies. - Julia Roberts. There's something about her, she always has had an effect on me. - Hello, trust issues! - It reminded me...

  • #8 - GI Joe - The Rise of Cobra

    21 August 2009 ( #Films )

    Being a fan of Marvel/DC Comics action movies that involve super powers (XMen, Superman Returns, Spiderman 1... but most of all Transformers 1 & 2) I went to see G.I. Joe - The Rise Of Cobra yesterday. I was not disappointed because I was not expecting...

  • #80 - Last Night

    23 February 2011 ( #Films )

    Indecipherable. My state of mind after seeing Last Night was indecipherable. It took me several days to determine whether I had liked the film or not. Now I know I did like the film. But I'm still trying to put a finger on why I liked it. It is a troubling...

  • #10 - Why The Elderly Impress Me...

    29 August 2009 ( #Music )

    ... It's not just because they're cleverer and wiser than I am, with my 24 years on this planet. It's not just because they've seen so many things and lived so many different times, with different values and wars and everything. No, really, old people...

  • #11 - Damages

    30 August 2009 ( #TV Shows )

    I discovered Damages in DVD last week, and the first season was fascinating. Glenn Close's character, a machiavelic defense attorney who manipulates everyone (and I mean everyone, including her partners, clients, family, judge...) is extremely interesting...

  • #12 - Up

    01 September 2009 ( #Films )

    This weekend I went to the cinema to see Up, the latest Disney/Pixar film. While it's old news in Northern America, it's only been out in France for a few weeks. I saw it with special 3D effects (they give you special googles and all... it's like IMAX...

  • #13 - Inglourious Basterds

    12 September 2009 ( #Films )

    I'm just back from the cinema where I saw Inglourious Basterds, the latest piece by Tarantino. I wasn't disappointed, I really liked the whole movie. Two words are enough to describe the 2:30 hours the film contains: Politically Incorrect . It's really...

  • #14 - Wajd - Amhara

    13 September 2009 ( #Music )

    Recherche d'autres artistes comme WAJD sur Myspace Music Just discovered this tune today. I haven't found any album from Wajd yet but I'll make sure to keep that artist slash band in mind... And if you click on wajd you'll access his other uploads which...

  • #15 - The Season Premieres season

    25 September 2009 ( #TV Shows )

    It's season premiere time right now, so as a TV show geek it's quite normal for me to be caught up in the returning shows' craziness. Well, as usual, I've been disappointed by some shows and am thrilled by others. Let's talk about the good stuff first:...

  • #16 - The September Issue

    10 October 2009 ( #Films )

    She's tiny, she's minuscule, and even though she's 50 she looks childish, yet she runs an empire, the empire of fashion. Meet Anna Wintour, Editor in Chief of Vogue magazine. Every year in September, Vogue issues the most read, most important, heaviest...

  • #17 - The Proposal

    14 October 2009 ( #Films )

    Yesterday I saw The Proposal in theaters (in France it only went out a couple of weeks ago), and exited 2 hrs later all giggly, and with that refreshing feeling I have when I get captivated by a comedy. On the one side, there's dear Ryan Reynolds, who...

  • #18 - 500 Days Of Summer

    22 October 2009 ( #Films )

    I saw 500 days of Summer a couple of weeks ago and, as much as I usually like a lot stories about love, even those who fail and are not meant to be, I didn't enjoy the 500 Days of Summer experience. Firstly I should say that the main character, Tom, played...

  • #19 - Fame

    13 November 2009 ( #Films )

    Out of boredom slash there's-nothing-else-out-right-now, I saw Fame two weeks ago. Since I wasn't expecting anything (good) of it, I enjoyed the movie. The music was good, the dance pieces were good, the atmosphere between the characters plausible......

  • #20 - Away We Go

    13 November 2009 ( #Films )

    I wasn't really supposed to see this movie, I went to the cinema with two friends ready for the 2012 blast but there were no seats left when we arrived so we chose the least repulsing movie available at this time and ended up buying tickets for Away We...

  • #21 - New Moon

    19 November 2009 ( #Films )

    WARNING: If you haven't read the books or seen the trailer and hate to be told what's going on in a movie you haven't watched yet, mind the spoilers in this article! Yesterday I saw New Moon, the second opus in Stephanie Meyer's Twilight series, in theaters....

  • #22 - FreddeGredde returns...

    24 November 2009 ( #Music )

    ... with an original song this time. I love his medley, which I have in my iPod and listen to quite often, and his other contributions are amazing. He uploaded a new song on YouTube recently, a song he composed and as usual he's playing it all except...

  • #23 - Use Your Handwriting

    24 November 2009 ( #Technology )

    What's with all the new technologies, computers at work, laptops at home, and SmartPhones everywhere else, we barerly hold a pen in our hands anymore. Have you ever experienced this weird feeling, when you were still a student, that you could hardly take...

  • #24 - Arthur & the Revenge of Maltazard

    17 December 2009 ( #Films )

    Having adored the 1st episode of Luc Besson's Arthur series, I was much eager to see the sequel to Arthur and the Invisibles. It began really well, with good jokes, good acting, good story, good music, a perfect imaginary world... the spirit of the first...

  • #25 - Avatar

    21 December 2009 ( #Films )

    This weekend I saw Avatar with special 3D goggles (exactly like when I saw Up this summer) and it was… AWESOME! First of, we had taken our tickets at 4PM for the 08:50PM show, and it was almost sold out. Then we queued for 40min and there were already...

  • #26 - It's Complicated

    10 January 2010 ( #Films )

    "It's complicated" is the story of a 50-something couple with three children who got a nasty divorce 10 years ago and who try the "divorced with benefits" experience. The ex-husband got remarried, and the ex-wife redesigned her whole life by opening up...
