J'apprends à mon chat à marcher sur les pattes de derrière

Et c'est sans espoir que j'apprends à mon chat à marcher sur les pattes de derrière.
La télé allumée j'apprends sur les pattes de derrière à mon chat à marcher.
Ça laisse un fond sonore assez fort pour couvrir la machine à laver.
"Très Chasse", "Histoires Naturelles", "Voisin Voisine" et "Le Prince de Bel Air", ce que je préfère, C'est apprendre à mon chat à marcher sur les pattes de derrière."
Style : Euro crunck (according to them, but I agree, fits them well)

Despite the "mysoginyst" lyrics (according to lodite), TTC are really my favorite french hip-hop act and probably one of my favorite hip-hop act after all (if you remove my MF Doom obsession). The wordplay, the diversity of the 3 MC's flow and the electronic beats just make everything crazy.
But the cherry on top is Teki Latex.... This guy....

Girls Girls Girls Girls, Cars I do adore

Now that I'm driving so much, I realized that there are a lot of pretty cars around here, that could cost me less than my Mustang obsession, or worse ! My Escalade/Navigator love. I now know that I need a coupe/rich color/with a spoiler.
En attendant mon mari riche , I'll try to survive with those , all between 15 000 -25 000 $

Yann Tiersen - Le Phare

Symply astonishing
I just got into Yann Tiersen again cause I felt like listening to some nice french folk music. I started with Amelie Poulain of course but then I remembered that he used to have some nice violin/piano melodies in his older works. I then got this album, especially cause it featured La Noyee & Le Fil, one of my favorites tracks off the soundtrack.
It was really nice rediscovering this sound, those dark violin and piano melodies. I think I found my soundtrack for the upcoming rainy days in New Jersey.

Funny preview

I screencapped my playcounts of the week because I thought the display of artists at this moment was rather funny/odd. On the top are only hip-hop artists , respectively, a producer, the new hot thing, the veteran, and the love/hate rapper . On the bottom are what I would label as "indie" artists. Anyway I just feel like doing a quick introduction as how I got into them, so here you go! I love to do that!!!
  1. Madlib . Well I decided to try his beats (even though I'm not really an "instrumental/beat" person) as he's one of the main producer working with MF Doom (my latest hip-hop obsession). I'm Very Impressed . Well not very impressed , I kinda foresaw it would be good based on his work with Doom.
  2. J.Cole : I was chit-chatting with this hip-hop head about music when he ordered me to try it out. I thought why not? Quite impressed . I mean his latest mixtape is almost album material.
  3. Q-Tip : His latest album was very well received in the hip-hop community. I don't really like Q-Tip cause I don't like nasal voices on guys, but the album really grew on me.Very impressed. Really nice beats, different from what you're usually listening on the radio.
  4. MF Doom & MF Grimm : Well this is a long story. I was browsing my regular forum when someone posted asked about songs with irregular beats. Along this came this video. I was hooked. I decided to try more of it. I cannot rate it cause I'm automatically biased with MF Doom.
  5. The Olivia Tremor Control : It started with The Instruments, a group part of the label Elephant 6. I decided to get more into this label, starting with the some of the most famous bands. Some highs and lows depending on my mood
  6. Grizzly Bear : More here
  7. Panda Bear : He's the main (most accessible) artist behind Animal Collective so I decided to give a try to his solo work. Very Impressed
  8. The Shins : Randomly got it when I was in my random period (it happens sometimes). Not impressed, rather generic band tbh.

Fierce !!! - Gucci Fall 2009

I love those ads, with all the models together, but let's be serious, what about the fashion behind it?
I've been dying to buy some animal prints myself but I've yet to find the print I'll fall in love with/dare to wear.

Anyway Sienna Miller for the GI Joe promo and Jessica Simpson on the cover of Glamour wore some pieces of the collection.

What do you guys think?

  • Do
  • Don't
  • Yes but not thoses (post link)

What the hell, a crocodile farm?

So I was reading an article about the fact that Jean Paul Gaultier might step down as a creative director from Hermes when they branched out to the fact that Hermes is barely touched by the gloal recession, and that they even stated they would open their crocodile farm to fit the demand.
Now this Birkin looks less yummy no?

  • I want my Birkin bag no matter what!
  • Yeah, who cares about crocodile anyway
  • I don't know, I feel it's wrong
  • Ewwwww

En passant, voici un site le fun que j'ai vu en cherchant des images: Birkin Watcher

My fair lady

I caught glimpses of what could be an excellent new korean drama! It's not like we'll get a revolutionary story but you can see for yourself, the fashion is to die for! I can't wait! @youtube

These Are My Twisted Words - new Radiohead song

So here's a new song, called 'These Are My Twisted Words'.
We've been recording for a while, and this was one of the first we finished.
We're pretty proud of it.
There's other stuff in various states of completion, but this is one we've been practicing, and which we'll probably play at this summer's concerts. Hope you like it.
To listen @deadairspace, image @flickr
I have to say that I was listening to this song while posting and I got a little afraid cause the intro was so long, I started to wonder if they kinda went instrumental. No nono can do! I need Thom Yorke's voice!

GI Joe didn't live up to the hype

But Sienna Miller makes a hot The Baroness!!!
Visually only, cause I didn't like her personality at all.
The movie was kinda cheezy overall. Too bad they could really have made it work!
