I wish you an excellent New Year, full of grace, joy, peace, health and prosperity. 

So here’s Philippe Léotard chanting Arthur Rimbaud’s Le Bateau îvre

Manu Manuréva
Où es-tu Manu Manuréva
Bateau fantôme toi qui rêvas
Des îles et qui jamais n’arriva
Là-bas

Où es-tu Manu Manuréva
Portée disparue Manuréva
Des jours et des jours tu dérivas
Mais jamais jamais tu n’arrivas
Là-bas

As-tu abordé les côtes de Jamaïca
Oh héroïque Manuréva
Es-tu sur les récifs de Santiago de Cuba
Où es-tu Manuréva
Dans les glaces de l’Alaska

Où es-tu Manu Manuréva
Tu es parti oh Manuréva
A la dérive Manuréva
Là-bas

As-tu aperçu les lumières de Nouméa
Oh héroïque Manuréva
Aurais-tu sombré au large de Bora Bora
Où es-tu Manuréva
Dans les glaces de l’Alaska

Où es-tu Manu Manuréva
Portée disparue Manuréva
Des jours et des jours tu dérivas
Mais jamais jamais tu n’arrivas
Là-bas

Manuréva pourquoi ?

Which is wildly appropriate for Léotard, being himself quite the drunkard (think French Bukowski, if Bukowski was an actor and the brother of one ot the most important French politician of the 80s).

Sadly, I have to report we underwent a spike of crime in my town this year. #switzerland #thuglife

Shame on you for stealing the Christmas Tree’s big star.

Certainly not my favourite, nor my best, but the most popular posts of 2015. I seriously don’t know what to do with this blog, sometimes, but it seems that cows are the new cats, and I should probably just post pictures of cows and gun porn to be successful.  

2015 was a neutral year, not exactly a complete loss of time (since thanks to @backfromcamden I’m working my German) but without any kind of serious accomplishment neither.

Since it’s that time of the year (and even if I truely believe that gloomy, dark, depressing heart of winter can’t be seriously the beginning of the year, prefering instead the old April 1st as the first day of the new year, but that’s another story), I’d really like to thanks all my followers (particulary the nice ones that regularly interact with me and/or my mutuals : @shmurnoff, @grrizzli,@tracesetsignes, @alte-hase, @jeep42willys,@bright-green-gloves,@johanvandemerwe, @descampsdavid,@sof1976, @lvnbrg, @wynfrith, @1-of-these-days, @profetosama@backfromcamden,@unsisypheheureux, @themazette@alexrpcornish@flecktarn…), the people that randomly like my pictures, even when said photos are trashy, OCD-triggering (shout-out to @euroremont), and too quickly made – and yes, including the robot porn blogs because it’s the holidays and even annoying robots deserve a bit of love.

Under the break, as usual at the end of the month, you’ll find an updated list of all my tags, that may be useful to navigate smartly my archives :

This 2015 Désalpe de l’Étivaz was quite a big event and pretty well organized, apart from the system of public transportation. It was so frustrating I decided to stop wasting my time at the bus stop and went back to my car by walking. I’m very glad to have chose this option since the weather was perfect for a little walk (about an hour) and the road was exquisite.

ALFA Romeo Spider Coda tronca. Prettiest ALFA ever…

what about the 2000 gtv from 1972?

Of course it’s very pretty. But I’d put it in another category of ALFA, the very masculine and muscular ones, like the 75 or il mostro SZ. This Spider, it only got two contenders in my view, the sublime Montreal and the subtle early nineties’ Spider.
