This Week

Reading: December Vogue, guest editted by model Gemma Ward (I'm not a fan of hers); still reading Gainsbourg by Gilles Verlant - it's big!
Watching: South Park. Oh how I love juvenile humour!
Eating: Healthy until the end of November. Brilliant tapas at Captain Torres last night.
Bought: eBay bargains - 2 fun Diane Von Furstenburg tops, Gharani Strok black skirt.
Listening To: Red, White And Crue, Motley Crue's Greatest Hits; You're Under Arrest, Gainsbourg, especially Mon Legionnaire.

Gainsbourg's version of Mon Legionnaire is superb. I could quote lines from it, but I would have to quote the entire song, as the words are so beautiful and moving. I want this picture on my wall (from the You're Under Arrest CD booklet):

Thanks for the Gainsbourg pic! He was such a cad, and so unattractive, but I'm just as nuts about him. Can I get this CD on Amazon?

Is the December Vogue the one that has the article on blogging, or was that the November issue? (nice to see that Vogue have finally jumped on that bandwagon)

La Dauphine, I actually find Gainsbourg really attractive, especially as he got older. Of course, it has something to do with his brilliance, his supreme intellect, but I go weak at the knees over images of him such as the cover of Mauvaises Nouvelles des Etoiles (http://www.gainsbourg.net/images/discography/mauvaises_nouvelles_des-etoiles_2001.jpg).

You can get all his CDs, including You're Under Arrest, at Amazon. It's his last album and it's quite melancolic (including the brilliant Gloomy Sunday/Sombre Dimanche).

Jules, this is the December issue. The article on blogging in the November issue was a yawn, nothing new or interesting. It was like they were introducing blogging to the readers (hey, most of us already know about it!) instead of highlighting the best, trends, etc.
