1er Avril…2005

Vendredi, avril 1st, 2005

(The Angels in Paris 1981-pics J.Y.Legras;

Today the Angels inspire me a lot of “Poissons d’avril” (April Scherz and April joke ?). I don’t know if this tradition runs around the world or if it’s typically European but the joke during the whole day is to tell somebody the most enormous thing it’s possible with the art to made this thing credible.
I want to play a little game with you : some things I wrote are true, other things are “Poisson d’Avril”:
1 - I got an e-mail this morning from the Angels with the following declaration : We, the Angels band, Buzz, John, Rick and Chris, promise on their honour to their French fans, they will play their famous song “Marseille” in Marseille maybe this year 2005, anyway before the end of the summer 2006.
2 - Doc Neeson their ex-vocalist sang this song during enough years with such a pleasure that he promises to come too.
3 - Buzz the drummer wrote to me he will come this week-end to Marseille to plan the concert.
4 - Their manager sent me the last version of Marseille to take my blues away because I learned Buzz can’t come now.
5 - John sings better the song “Marseille” than Doc because he wrote the lyrics and lives himself the story.
6 - The Angels always are a great band after thirty years.
7 - I have the blues because the Angels don’t play this week-end in Marseille and I must wait and I hate to wait.
You can vote : T for true, P for “Poisson d’avril” ! (The Angels themselves can play too). I will give the answers in the next podcast !

3/03/05 Riders on the storm

Jeudi, mars 3rd, 2005

Hey Hey ! Nobody wanted to write a word in English today…didn’t you want to spring in the water before the storm arrives ?
It’s time now ! Look at the nice sky in Marseille captured by my digital eyes :

This afternoon Ralf and I visited the CG13 establishment to introduce Eurocircle and Meltingpod projects to a politician we met together more than 10 years ago. We are trying to build a new European network as always.

I’m fighting with sound softwares to record something for you.
Meanwhile, here is a very good and clear article about the birth of podcasting:la radio personnelle, in French…aaaah ! (thanks to Luc Saint-Elie for the translation) and the link to the original text from TidBits newsletter in English.
