1. All guns are always loaded / toutes les armes…

Don’t forget…“know your target and what lies beyond it”

I agree 100 % with you. To justify my choice not to include that part of the rule, it’s not canonical and, for me, it’s part of the commentary about the rule.

Song of a gun (1) – Des armes, une chanson de Léo Ferré interprétée par Noir Désir.

Guns, nice and glossy,

that you need to carress as for pleasure

that you need to clean often for pleasure

the other one, of which the little girls are dreaming

Guns, blue like Earth

Guns that you have to keep warm in the depth of the soul

In the eyes, in the heart, into a woman’s arms

Guns that you keep inside you, as if you keep a riddle

Guns in the days of hiding

Under the grass, in the sky, also on the paper,

Guns that make you daydream very late while reading

and put some poetry in the speeches

Guns, guns, guns,

and on-duty poets with fingers on the trigger

to put fire at the last cigarette

at the end of a french sentence

bright as a tear

The band is Noir Désir, whose singer is know for having killed his girlfriend in a drunken fistfight and the poem is by Léo Ferré, Monte-Carlo official’s anarchist. It’s mostly about bizarre sexual perversions, resistance to oppression and litterature.

For being French-Swiss your commentary on America is strangely accurate.

For the better or the worse I’m exposed to a lot of American culture. By the way, we have the same kind of weasels here.


wynfrith hat auf deinen Eintrag geantwortet: My favourite legal case ever : United States…

Netflix has a documentary film of it, if it is the case I am thinking of…

I was thinking something less of a documentary, but more of a very weird movie, beginning like a traditionnal courtroom drama but quickly evolving to David Lynch territories when an animated dinosaur skeleton will answer the questions of the public attorney.



Ouaip ^^ Je dois avouer, au risque de me faire des ennemis, que je ne suis pas très fana de bière, étant plutôt un buveur d’alcools blancs, et plus spécifiquement de rhum.

Pour citer l’autre (de mémoire), c’est que je déteste le vin, le cognac et toutes ces saletés. Je préfère la vodka. Elle est blanche, elle est sûrement intelligente.

Mais oui, l’Orval est probablement ma bière favorite (en tenant compte du fait que je préfère une tétrapétée d’autres alcools à l’Orval). Rochefort était ma troisième trappiste (sur les six belges), après Westvleteren et Orval.

Excellent choix. Va visiter l’abbaye à l’occasion, ça devrait te plaire niveau archi

C’est vrai que c’est joli.


wynfrith hat auf deine Bilderserie geantwortet“You may remember that I made a quick review of Caran d’Ache Alchemix…”

I thought you liked and used the 849 as your carry pen? Also over the long term a fountain pen with a converter and bottled ink will cost less. It is not disposable, bottled ink versus ballpoint refills ounce to ounce is no question of which is cheaper, plenty of inexpensive fountain pens that work well, and can customize to what ink and nib you prefer. Just a thought.

I like my old 849 like I like an old Mercedes 200 (123) – it’s a workhorse. But recent ones are not as well made, and honestly I’ve been dissapointed by a lot of recent Caran d’Ache products (the worse was the Alchemix…). But the Goliath ink cartridge is not up to date compared to the competition. What was still state of the art at the beginning of the naughties is feeling like a gritty Bic Cristal now, when you have so many inkgel, rollerball, pressured cartridges, etc. available. I really like both my Kaküno and Pluminix from Pilot, but they are not efficient writing tool when I’m outside, and certainly not GMP-approved.

Mac Mini is what I want! How is it?

You’ll have to wait about a week to have a serious answer. I have it only for three days, and I only found the correct screen adaptator yesterday, and I’m working almost non stop till monday, when I’ll have the time to really play with it. I have three goals for it : scanning my old negatives, make another dropbox point and video editing (my current computer is driving me crazy). But the first impression is very good, it’s quite fast and it’s not as frustrating as iOS to use. (Note à mes lecteurs francophones : un point bonus pour vous si vous être capable de me dire pourquoi j’ai choisi Cayenne de Parabellum pour illustrer  cet article).




I’m stuck with Windows 7 at work, and i have a brief encounter with the later iterations and I can say I 8 them very much.
Honestly, Ubuntu is not the perfection nor an all-around solution (still some quirks to fix before considering taking over the consumer market) but it’s honestly not that bad.
I’m rediscovering OS X since @descampsdavid gave me a Mac Mini.
Anyway, for 95 % of applications, all computers are good enough, including these cheap ChromeOS übernetbooks that cost the price of a meal in a good restaurant.



Quand on est habitué à une température moyenne annuelle de 7°C, passé 15°C ça devient tropical. D’ailleurs, c’est le moment où les problèmes reviennent : les gamins jouent dans les jardins en braillant comme des ânes en rut, les mouches reviennent, il y a plein de tracteurs sur les routes, et la boue, la boue, toujours la boue…
