How far will you go to make your dreams come true?

Tonight we joined Denis, Hélios and Regina at Studio 28 for the avant-première of Woody Allen's latest film, Cassandra's Dream. If you don't have an answer to the question above then go see this movie ... and it's OK if you laugh ;-)

Incidentally, this was my first time to Studio 28 and it is quite a nice neighborhood cinema with very good champagne available at their bar. If you are in Paris and have never been I certainly suggest you stop by. Cheers!

Gui back in town ;-)

A nice surprise to see Gui back in town (and we're all having dinner together later). He was nice enough to gift us with another of his CDs, this one is "Live at Montreux" - one of his more ambitious outing ... and we love it!

You can listen to excepts here.

Paris ... jazzy

Some Paris strolling this afternoon and then joining Evelyne at the Jazz Cartoon cabaret to hear her new friend's warblings. Come on by if you're free ;-)

Lyon in music

I got a ride down to Lyon with Jean-Nöel yesterday since there is a massive, nationwide train strike since last night until mid-day tomorrow. I am teaching all day tomorrow at the IAE and, hopefully, my 8pm train back to Paris will be operating.

Tonight Bizet's "Les 8 mouvements de l'Arlésienne" (the music of the melodrama based on Daudet's short story in the book at left) performed by l'Orchestre de Lyon 3 right here on campus.

Wine Harvest Fireworks

I flew back from Toulouse tonight and then we went up to Montmartre to see our Brazilian friends and lucked out to see (up real close and personal) the annual fireworks for "la fête des vendanges" from Hélios' apartment (just below on the east side of Sacre Coeur - right side of the photo, just where you see the two lights).

Nuit Blanche N° 6

Tonight, from dusk until dawn tomorrow, the sixth annual "White Night" in Paris with over 150 artists with installations, performances, etc. all around town (new this year: a more "centralized" trajectory that follows the Métro line 14).

I know many friends will be out there wandering about all night - I, myself, will probably start around 8:30pm when they "set fire" to the Tuileries.

Let me know, dear Readers, if you plan to be there (for those far away you can participate, too ... via Second Life, just teleport your avatar to "Second Night"). So, see you there ... or there!

UPDATE: I went with Odile's sister to see the "2,000 points of lights" that were set along the central alley of the Tuileries Gardens. Really magique! Afterwards we walked to the Louvre, open free until almost midnight, and quite suprisingly fairly devoid of crowds, to admire the Mona Lisa and other works of the Italian artists of the period. Afterwards a nice dinner nearby at the Saint Honoré Café (with the French rugby win for dessert).
