reading and listening

2 01 2009

I have 2 new things in my cultural life at the moment: a new music album and a new book….

Les hommes qui n'aiment pas les feemes1-  I am listening to Elbow – The Seldom seen kid. I posted one of their song a while ago called Audience with the pope. I love their CD and I want to discover their others. It is just slow pop music with hot voices. Really peaceful. Just try.

 

Elbow2- It is the first time I read in French since I am in London i.e. april 2006! And I read. My book shelves are full and I don’t know where to store my new ones. My parents talked to me so much about this book that I had to read it but unfortunately they have not all been translated from Swedish to English I believe. the write is Stieg Larsson and the first novel is ‘Les hommes qui n’aiment pas les femmes‘ – the english one is called ‘the girl with the dragon tatoo’. This is the first of a trilogy called Millenium.  In England, the 2nd will be published in Jan 09 and the 3rd in Jan 10!!! I can’t wait. They are all already out in France. So I read in French. I will tell you once I finished the first book.

Song of the day: Rule the world by Take That – since their come back, they are playing this song everywhere

orpheus risingI am currently reading Orpheus Rising Love, Rockets & a bloody great fish by Colin Bateman. That is an intresting book. Well written but a bit slow. Surprising from the being. It wont be my favourite but will be part of my discovery. Please give me some idea about what to read!!!!!

BTW, I go to Paris this week end. I had a free ticket from last year because I had more than an 1hrs delay! 🙂





When flying to Milan tomorrow…

the overlook by Michael ConnellySong of the day: Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol

As you may be aware by now I love reading… especially reading while riding the train on my way to work. I have just finished another book (I read a few during my holidays onwards but can’t list them all). It is from one of my favorite author Michael Connelly and it’s called The Overlook.

On another matter, I had my sister over for the long week end including remembrance day (which for your information isn’t a bank holidays here but only 2 minutes of silence in the country…). It was pissing rain, it cold and windy but we had a great time. I am really happy she came visit me. She wil be always welcome, as welcome as you by the way! Please visit me more often! 😛

Lisa, I’ll see you for Xmas! 😉 Thanks again for your visit!

My friends showed me this video on YouTube: 70m viewers. If you speak English, you’re going to be dead laughing on the floor. It is Ahmed the dead terrorist… and silence or I’ll kill you! AHAHAHAHAH! 😀

Song of the day: Out of the Ghetto from Isaac Hayes – he is dead but he was such a great singer!

I finished my book beginning of this week (Emporium by Robert Harris) and I have started Run by Jeff Abbott. I have just discovered that it is called collision in the US… Isn’t that weird??? Both countries speak the same language but the title of the book is different… :-\

Anyway, this book seems really good but I can only read on my way to work in the train these days. I am so busy at work and I am on the early shift this week that is 7 to 17 for me… 😦 but in less than 1 month I will be on holidays! YAY!!! 😛
