A few very bad gigs, surprisingly:

Among those I didn’t had the chance to see in live, here is a small selection of artist, who, in my point of view, have really interesting records.

  • The White Stripes
  • Aphex Twin
  • Portishead
  • Bon Iver
  • Elliott Smith
  • Ray LaMontagne
  • Tahiti 80
  • Rage Against The Machine

  • Rhinôcérôse
  • CocoRosie

Finally, here is a very short selection of book I have read in English, even if I am totally aware that those are best sellers. Being able to read them in the language of their author was far more pleasant than their french translation.

  • The Lord of the Rings
  • Dead Poets Society
  • Peter Principle
