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.

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).

J’ai reconnu Caryl Ferey, on a dû écouter le même…

Heureusement qu’il y avait Patti Smith à la fin pour sauver l’émission. 

J’ai par ailleurs découvert que je pouvais systématiquement avancer durant L’Encyclopédie pratique, le segment radiophonique qui donne le cancer.

“oh you wanted to install Marshmallow ? Please…


Indeed. Good news is that after I had checked each and every autorisation of each and every app on my phone, and uninstalled/reinstalled about half of them, most of the problems are gone. It seems one of the big problem was the overlay system, and especially my blue-light filter app (Twilight). I definitely have no more patience for this technological bullshit.

Border between Fribourg (Freiburg) and Vaud…

Kilometer or mileage? Or some other form of measurement?

That was my second hypothesis, but neither number make sense in that way (315 km or mi put you probably in France, Germany or Italy, and 1727 would get you to Poland, I believe). My third hypothesis was that was the date of erection of this milestone, but common sense would say that both side of the rock were done the same year, so… I have no idea. 

By the way, to understand the awful pun behind the choice of this Julie Depardieu’s cover of Patrick Hernandez, you have to know that in French, the word for milestone is borne.


Even if I tend to prefer Laibach’s original compositions (both from first and second generation), even if my favourite old-school Laibach’s videoclip is still Sympathy for the Devil, and my favourite cover is tied between Europe’s Final Countdown, Queen’s Geburt einer Nation, or Gainsbourg’s Love on the Beat, this Life is life is simultaneously glorious and delightful.
