Ok. First some weblogs I like, so you can see what this is all about :

kempa has a lot of wit, and his articles are great ! Check his Axl Rose things…

Nanette is this kind of girl you can only see on the internet, it seems they never exist in the real life. In my neighboorhood, at least, but america is such a strange country :).

Andre Torrez’ blog is more about his life that internet links, but it’s extremely funny and sweet.

Devon has good musical tastes. Check this out.

And Glenn’s weekly War Against Silence is one of the best music reviews online, established 1995 and still alive. Just search his web with words like ‘My so-called life’, ‘Tori Amos’ or ‘Guided by Voices’ to be amazed. He’s a prolific reviewer and has a lot of tenderness for his « victims ».

More later.

Hi there !

This is my first post, and this is a frightening thing, brothers and sisters…

So, why a weblog ? The first reason (the subconscious one) is that I’ve always planned to write something like, let’s say it, a « book » and it will prove me wether I’m able to deal with small bits of writing regularly or not. The other reasons include the facts that blogs are fun, that they may be standing for all the emails I forgot to answer to (so it may calm my friends’ anger down), and that keeping a weblog is way cooool, especially in countries like France, where it’s still a rarity.

Now, « Why a weblog in English ? » is the next pertinent question. First, I have to say that I will probably switch to French from times to times, when inspiration or enthusiasm will be lacking, when my posts will be specifically intended to French audiences, or… for dirty words if I feel like it. Anyway, 99% of the visitors should be French or French-speaking, so that shouldn’t matter that much.

Back to the point : English is the widespread #1 language on the internet, especially in the field of independent pop/rock music, which will without doubts be my favourite subject. And above that it’s a fucking great language that I truly love, yes sir ! Brushing it up will be beneficial anyway.

See you very soon. I’ll try to entertain you ; that may not work, but you know that’s because

… everybody’s weird !
