The capital of Gaul.

Here are a few shots from my last week-end with Marine, who has just moved to Lyon. It was kind of quick since it was only a 2 days trip, but Lyon seems to be a really charming city. Sorry I don’t write more, but I have to pack for a trip in NYC departing in a few hours.

One night in Kødbyen, København.

It took us about two hours from downtown to Kødbyen while it usually take 20 minutes. Two hours of angriness, of tiredness, of being lost. But god it was worth it.

Kødbyen is the meat packing district of Copenhagen. It is where every butcher in town make business. Somehow, in the middle of all this meat industry and its warehouses, bars rise at night, and Kødbyen becomes the best place to party in the city.

There’s a room for everyone, whatever your style is. There are some metal bars, some more fancy like Karriere. We ended up in this little bar called Jolene. This bar used to be located in Nørrebro, but has been shut down by the authorities for excessive noise. The owners brought it back to life in this trendy neighborhood.

My friends and I use to stand in front of the door of bars, listen to the beat, and then decide if we go in. We got seduced by a very good Berlin inspired, bouncy but minimal electro beat. So we decided to step in. The first thing you notice when you enter is a writing on the wall: “We are not a fucking cocktail bar”.

The tone is set. This must be the place.

Let’s go back to Treasure Island.

When I first listened to the album For Kenny for the first time, I liked it. Just, I liked it. Not enough to declare it album of the decade, but enough to dig a bit around Charlotte O’Connor‘s universe.

I found this live video of Charlotte singing Treasure Island and I instantly loved it. Her voice is incredible and it’s really too bad we can’t feel how much potential it has when we listen to her studio album.

Charlotte O’Connor is signed on Drop In Music (Quiksilver records). Her new single Addicted will be out on May 12th 2012 (yes, tomorrow), and an EP should be available later this summer/fall.

Special merci to Marie :)

Did you say it?

Did you say it?
“I love you. I don’t ever want to live without you. You changed my life.”
Did you say it?
Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around.
Drink it in.
‘Cause this is it.
It might all be gone tomorrow.

Ride to freedom.

Candide Thovex, the best freeskier of all time (and I mean it) is back. Here’s the teaser of “Few words”, his movie, which is, in few words, the most beautiful ski video I’ve seen so far.
