....and tibetan travellings!

really cool articles...
The Independent Online Edition > Travel: "It is tempting to stay in Lijiang for ever, but I still have a final frontier to probe. The end of Yunnan is where I'm heading, by bus: to a small town, north of Lijiang, 12,000 feet up in the Tibetan borderlands. When I disembark here, several hours later, a serious frost is in the air. This feels like Tibet all right. The local people are ruddy-cheeked Tibetans. Distant Tibetan mountains ring the valley. Tibetan yaks amble on street corners. A Tibetan monastery commands the heights on the edge of town."

Yunnan Province and tourism

The Independent Online Edition > Travel: "You might think of as the Dordogne of China, with its pleasant weather, rustic landscapes, picturesquely dressed minority peoples, and quaint old towns. But in consequence, the tourists are now coming. And boy, are they coming - affluent Chinese urbanites by the thousand. Some come on package tours, others come independently. Huge crowds of camera-clicking tourists zoom in on every spot of cultural or natural interest. The 'old' quarter of every town is a maelstrom of boutique shops and open-air restaurants."

Affaire CSDEM

Da webmaster blogz: "Résumé de la situation :

1) La CSDEM, au nom des 70 éditeurs qui la composent, nous demande de retirer les textes de nos sites Internet sous 15 jours.

2) Nous (webmasters) nous organisons et formons l'association ADPCI (Association pour la Diffusion des Paroles de Chansons sur Internet)

A ce jour, nous sommes 12 webmasters à s'être regroupés :
- bestofparoles.com
- ftpk.net

- paroles.net
- lesparoles.com
- fandemusique.com
- paroles-de-chansons.com

Notre but est simple : nous voulons discuter avec eux afin de trouver des accords techniques, légaux et financiers concernant la diffusion de paroles de chansons sur les sites Internet
(mise en place d'une base de données consolidée avec pour chaque titre, le ou les interprètes, le ou les éditeurs, le ou les auteurs)

3) La presse commence à relayer l'information, 01net a fait un papier peu convaincant, les autres donnent des infos qu'ils ne maîtrisent pas. "

Music Planet 2Nite: Susheela Raman-Nitin Sawhney

J'viens juste de regarder ça (c'était une émission d'arte), ça trainait sur le réseau de la résidence.
J'aime bien la musique indienne: les voix sont très belle (ça m'en donne des frissons) et la section rythmique est vraiment excellente. Et quand ils se mettent à faire des rythmes avec leur bouche, j'en tombe par terre, comme qui dirait.
Nitin Sawhney

Susheela Raman ("woman" lyrics)

Woman, where’s your dignity?
How can you lie there while the lover destroys you?
He doesn’t know your worth
But you bear his burden and make it yours
Why do you cry?

Woman, don’t be tortured by a madman
You’ve got to get out
The prison door is open

Woman, why do you rest here?
Is your love an ignorant sacrifice?
Roles you learned to play
Conspire against you and hold you down
Why don’t you fight
Um Krim Kali e Nama

As I sit and watch the snow fallin' down

NORAH JONES LYRICS - Don't Miss You At All
"As I sit and watch the snow
Fallin' down
I don't miss you at all
I hear children playin' laughin' so loud
I don't think of your smile

So if you never come to me
You'll stay a distant memory
Out my window I see light doing dark
Your dark eyes don't haunt me

And then I wonder who I am
Without the warm touch of your hand

And then I wonder who I am
Without the warm tough of your hand
As I sit and watch the snow
Fallin' down
I don't miss you at all"

Earthly Possessions

Kunming (for malaysian)

sativa skye: "My official impression of Kunming: colorful bustling city with breathtaking natural surrounding and beautiful places like Stone Forest and Western Hill.
My unofficial impression of Kunming: great shopping and young hot Tibetan men."

several nice personal posts on a short trip to kunming, by a journalist...

funny it mentions daniel (from london) living in Kunming which is also a blog i've found recently.... just need to read further to know more... it's called "Suitcasing"

sativa skye: Kuching Girl in Kunming (Part II): "Kunming has these bridges that allow bicycles to ride up to cross the road. And on top of these bridges - well, this particular one we used - there were peddlers selling handicrafts and fruits. One strawberry peddler was urging Pinky to buy in Mandarin. Pinky, being a Malay girl who doesn't understand a word of Mandarin, replied in English that she's not interested but would prefer his little rosy-cheeked son. There was one teenage girl who spoke English translated Pinky's words to the father. Pinky pointed to the son and naughtily said, 'Can I bring him home with me?'"

I'm going to...

Now the exam are just bad souvenirs, maybe i could comment on the new music on the radio.blog (you hear it, right?)

Márta Sebestyén: traditional magyar.... Hungary, Eastern Europe... I have feelings for this music (which is however not the easiest and which will surely reject some). If I know it, it's thanks to the Ghibli studio in Japan: it was part of the musics of the film Omohide Poroporo (1991 - japanese animation - "only yesterday" - "souvenirs goute à goute"), and more than playing it, they are talking about it in the movie.
mondomix.com (interview, videos, reportage)

About Stornelli, the traditionnal italian song, it's "coming" from the same manga. moreover, it's a song my italian grandmother knew and that we are sometimes listenning to when we go and visit (now i do it each time, it's an old vinyl, of course old....). i already post about this song!

next to Márta Sebestyén, here is another good stuff from eastern europe: Goran Bregovic of course. I've putted on the radio.blog the anthem of this page "mesecina, mesecina, joj joj, joj joj" from the movie underground. i have to modify the words (that are permanently on this page, just up the porco rosso picture), they are not exactly the same, i think. you can't find those words easily on the web i think, (at least, i had some difficulty) and there sometimes people coming on this blog because of these lyrics.

ouilleyouilleyouille, grosse panique.....
je me suis dis qu'il fallait que j'essaie quand même ce fameux firefox.... et bien, je m'en rappelerai!
d'abord, le rendu de ce blog est completement different sur Firefox, et forcement, ce n'est pas en mieux. il va falloir que je me replonge dans mon template (qui me semblait parfait!) pour les nombreux (si j'ai bien compris) utilisateurs de Fireprout (pour me venger, je dirais qu'ils ont succombé à la propagande Mozilla.... propagande diffusé par le peuple certes, mais propagande tout de même, et la pire...). car moi c'est decidé, je ne "switch" pas! "switch today".... c'est ça ouais!
dois-je préciser qu'il (l'affreux) a fait planter mon ordi! un plantage comme ça faisait longtemps que ça ne m'était pas arrivé (et en tout cas pas avec IE).

[update] Jeudi 12 mai..... from china
non, je ne voulais pas le dire, mais un peu d'honneteté ne fait pas de mal dans ce monde de brute! voilà, bien que j'ai gardé IE dans un coin, je n'utilise désormais que Firefox. J'ai succombé. Il faut dire qu'il n'est pas si facile de "switcher"!
je suis complètement addict de la navigation par onglet avec le clique sur la roulette de la souris!!!!!!! ça limite le nombre de fenêtre ouverte en bas et on peut cliquer sur des liens pour charger les pages sans pour autant les afficher tous de suite!
j'ai du bidouiller un peu pour réimporter mes raccourcis d'internet explorer (qui avait évolué depuis mon essai de switch).
Ce qui m'a décider à changer, c'est la barre de google qui est disponible sur firefox (mais pas par google apparement, je ne l'avais pas trouvé avant....). ainsi, j'ai mon bouton 'blog this' dont je ne peux me passer.
pour terminer, je preciserais qu'il faut garder IE, pour par exemple accéder au msn.space, et pour updater son msn.space si on en a un.

Southwest China's attractions (for kiwis)

The New Zealand Herald: "Not only are the attractions and food first-class but getting to them can be just as absorbing - from busing hundreds of kilometres on new expressways to cramming on a China Eastern jetliner, while rubbing shoulders with People's Liberation Army officers and loud, pushy domestic Chinese tourists."

"To visit the cities of Kunming, Chongqing and Chengdu is to experience first-hand the extraordinary changes sweeping the country. Blazing economic growth of 9 per cent is transforming the landscape."

"Chinese people thirst for development and that trend can be seen everywhere. Our Chengdu guide proudly told us the Chinese have two aspirations: a home phone (many have now realised that and also have cellphones) and a car.

The hundreds of construction cranes are another indication of growth."

"My favourite memory of Kunming is of a cart pulled by a donkey competing at a motorway interchange with every type of vehicle you can imagine."

"In Kunming's busy areas, stallholders selling souvenirs harassed us, calling out "hollo", the only English they seemed to know. Their hard-sell techniques are off-putting at first but bargaining can be fun."

"In one case we asked to see a "real" rural village and were taken to place near the stone carvings of Dazu. It has been hosting tourists since the early 1980s."

"These days in China you have to go quite a distance to really get off the beaten track. And a basic grasp of Mandarin is essential because few locals speak English."

In The Way


no you didn't just leave
I actually kicked you out
I couldn't hardly believe
that the words came out my mouth
you couldn't hardly believe
what you heard yourself discuss
and you packed up all your things
and you said goodbye to us

tell me what is in the way
in the way of my love for you?
tell me what is in the way
in the way of my love for you?
hafta get it outta of the way of my love
hafta get it outta of the way of my love

and now there's nothing left to lose,
and the screen just says 'Fini'
and each night in separate rooms
we cry separately
and every day we yell
down each other's holes
two slippery strippers
swinging round two poles

tell me what is in the way
in the way of my love for you?
tell me what is in the way
in the way of my love for you?
yeah there's something in the way of my love for you
yeah there's something in the way of my love

so we took down all the pictures
and then we took down all the walls
packed up our expectations
piled them in the hall
yeah we bagged our future
kicked it to the curb
and then we stood there unencumbered
and we stood there undeterred
cause we were done clinging
to the things we were afraid to lose
and the only thing left
was a breathtaking view
you looked at me
and I looked at you
and we said, 'How about now,
'what you wanna do?'

now there's something in the way
in the way of my love for you
now there's something in the way
in the way of my love for you
I have to get it out the way
out the way of my love for you
I have to get it out the way
out the way of my love for you

no you didn't just leave
no you didn't just leave
no you didn't just leave
no you didn't just leave"

Forever Suffering

Lycos Music | James Brown - The Payback: "On the harrowing, bluesy 'Forever Suffering,' Brown sings of separation and loneliness, asking how long the suffering will continue. As the tune progresses, he sings with unsettling detail of the lengths to which his pain drives him. After repeated vows to beat his head against the wall, it becomes clear that the emotions being expressed here, and on the rest of THE PAYBACK, are very real. Fortunately, an artist of Brown's caliber is capable of channeling these feelings into great art. "

Hayao Miyazaki by Margaret Talbot

The New Yorker: "He's very worried about kids consuming too much media, and thinks that they should watch a movie like 'Totoro' no more than once a year. "

"He's a big critic of our dependence on virtual reality—computer games, TV, and animation, too. He complained, when I met him, that so much in our culture is "thin and shallow and fake." He's also an environmentalist, of a somewhat dark and apocalyptic variety. He's said, not entirely jokingly, that he looks forward to the time when Tokyo is submerged by the ocean and the NTV tower becomes an island, when the human population plummets and there are no more high-rises."

"My feeling was that he was, by intellect and temperament, perhaps a pessimistic person, but that he has great vitality and a great respect and fondness for children, and that he wants them to make their own judgments about the world. He doesn’t want to swamp them with premature cynicism."

Voluntarily in China: Typepad, Blogs.com fall victim to meddling bureaucrats: "Sounds like blogging is a tough hobbie to keep up in China."

Blogspot Now Blocked From China: "Sites hosted at Blogspot.com have joined geocities in being blocked from china. After talking to other blogspot users in China it seems that the ban is present throughout the entire country. If you have a blogspot blog, it is possible to edit and update the blog through the blogger.com site, but after you update only people outside of China can read it."

Trio world music

Jean-Marie, Victor and Houssein, trio world music! Posted by Hello

Tonight, at the open-mic of the foundation of the US, Cité Internationale, Paris

Thursday, January 13, 2005


About the music in the radio.blog...
I won't speak about Keren Ann and Jamiroquai who are singing about not knowing where they are heading to but about the other hits you can listen on this page! (it's magic, it's radio.blog)

Stanley Clarke and Tony williams are known musician in the jazz/jazz-rock environment. This is from a brilliant album "stanley clarke" 1974... the drums (tony) is amazing. I just love it. www
(oh yeah, it's my dad who were and still is listenning to that...)

Renaud Garcia-Fons (contre-basse) is doing some really pleasant albums, that you can find in the world music section. i don't know so much about him and all his music but this tune is great! www

Fela Kuti, incredible music! it's so african and so funky! here's something i should have put next, an old james brown with fred wesley and maceo parker... some jazz-funk, next to the african funk.
This tune, zombie, recorded in 75-78, was banned by the African government (my source, allmusic.com doesn't say which one, but it's nigeria, right?)

Kenny Garrett, amazing saxophonist! my favourite, he made me love jazz music with this tune "sing a song of song" on his album "Songbook". a turkish friend made me listen to it (i always remember that). in concert, it's so good. and the solo is just to beautifull (ok i stop) www
(This guy played with miles davis)

Porco Rosso.... it's the music from a manga (Miyazaki) composed by joe Hisaishi.... i love the piano part on this one.

Yoko Kanno is also japanese, and also composed for Anime... Cowboy Bebop is one of this jap animation very well done.
her music is so diverse, so cool, so old style sometimes, and so modern on other tune.
this one is a good example of what she is able to do. www

You know Jimmy Hendrix right? well, less known is the album called "blues" and this song is good stuff!

And to finnish, some things you may not find somewhere else!
First, "Muda Osva" is band from Angers, France. they are my studentmates.... so not so famous yet. but what do you think about this song?

and to finish, Josephines. it was a band playing in grenoble, france. "jump, jive and jazz", that was what they were doing and they were doing it the right way! Me and my parents went to see them so many times. what we really love was a tune called "caldonia": there was an amazing scat solo of fabien sanchez, the guitarist-singer of the band, every time different, every time brilliant!
Caldonia - Louis Jordan - (Fleecie Moore?)

"Walk with my baby
She got great big feet
She long, lean, lanky
An had nothin' to eat

She's my baby
I love her just the same
Yeah an I'm crazy 'bout this woman cause
Caldonia..., your name

Don't take your big head so hard?
I love ya
I love ya just the same
You know I'm crazy 'bout this woman because
Caldonia..., your name"

Not Going Anywhere (Keren Ann)

Keren Ann sings:
"This is why I always wonder
I'm a pond full of regrets
I always try to not remember rather than forget

This is why I always whisper
When vagabonds are passing by
I tend to keep myself away from their goodbyes

Tide will rise and fall along the bay
and I'm not going anywhere
I'm not going anywhere
People come and go and walk away
but I'm not going anywhere
I'm not going anywhere

This is why I always whisper
I'm a river with a spell
I like to hear but not to listen,
I like to say but not to tell

This is why I always wonder
There's nothing new under the sun
I won't go anywhere so give my love to everyone

Tide will rise and fall along the bay
and I'm not going anywhere
I'm not going anywhere
People come and go and walk away
but I'm not going anywhere
I'm not going anywhere"

j'ai l'impression d'avoir déjà posté ça....
site non officiel

"Drifting Along" (Jamiroquai)

Jamiroquai sings:
"Nowhere to go
But I'll still be cruising
I live this life long
Long long time

You know I'm drifting along (drifting along)
Can't see where I'm going
I will get to my destination

I' m feeling the pressure (pressure)
All around me crumble (man now)
But I won't be put down this time

I'm shifting along
Though I sing a sweet song (sweet song)
We'll murder in the streets where I be livin'

I'm closing my eyes (closing my eyes)
Don't want to see killin'
Gentle giants will roam forever

I'm cruising the street
Wondering who I will meet
Oh love has got to reign in our world

La la la la
La la la la la
I don't know where I am going to
(I don't know where I am going to)

La la la la
La la la la la
I don't know where I am going to
Drifting along

Drifting along
Closing up my ears to the sound
I don't want to hear, crying"

Mal de tête

Introduction au droit comparé - Roland Séroussi

Donne-moi une bière que je fasse mousser mon ego

Java’s Voyages(Allo la terre… Le contact est brouilly… je vous reçois que demis sur zinc…)
Voici le titi parigot qui pillave à tire larigo
Donne-moi une bière que je fasse mousser mon ego .
J'approche du cosmos éthylique bientôt le trou noir
Le space colique l'extra-terrestre des comptoirs
Mets le compte à rebours kro-nomètre les pulsions du jour
Huit six je nage le krol-enbourg
Et la brasserie latitude 1664
Coule en apnée çà y est c'est parti
Rampe de lancement réacteur transmutation
J'ai perdu connaissance normal c'est la pression
J'ai l'inspi qui se veski qui me traîne comme un uski
Je l'ai noyé dans le whisky comme bukowski et je dis
Bas les masques bois de la vinasse
Si t’en as marre d’être vivant,
Fais un virement de vin dans le ventre et vomis
Luc sky… un johnny walker nous nous embourbons
Faut colmater le foir à fond
Ya une fuite dans la vessie spatiale de la nasa, j'ai la nausée
Trop de kriktonic et de gintonic éjectés du cockpit
Exit direct vite et mon beat va te mettre en orbite
La bière de mars attaque martien un petit verre
Champagne dark valstar sabre au laser
Le boulaouane kenobi
Passes en cybière space sur cd rhum pulvérise l'atmosphère, comme Arletty
Boom zoom gros plan sur le clown
Un dernier alcool de poire et je tombe dans les pommes boom
Le lendemain je me réveille la tête entre les jambes
Je suis rentré du cosmos mais j'ai gardé le scaphandre
J'ai mis un pied sur la lune je me réveille mal luné
Un petit pas pour l'homme un grand pas pour l'ébriété

Refrain X2
Java c'est pas de la menthe à l'eau
Java c'est du rock'n roll
Java c'est le vrai son parigot
La devise sex accordéon et alcool

Je suis un fossile antique de l'âge néothylique
Un rescapé du bal musette sur internet
Bok à l'inter cuttystartrek
Astérohash, fulgurojoint, camouflage soufflette
J'refoule le boulot autant que du goulot j'suis pas un cadeau
Le club chômage ma vie mes locaux coco
J'ai pourtant eu tous les diplômes à la fac
J'suis bac plus zinc et licence 4
Un grand sportif garçon un ballon sors le carton rouge
Me mets pas sur la touche j'absorbe comme un tampon
Sers à la louche sur la Tourtel j'ai fait le grand pont
Tu peux toujours me décrocher du comptoir je sors mes crampons
Un vétéran hors-jeu sorti des vestiaires
Entre la gnôle de saturne et la planète jupiler
Au bar le penalty tout le monde parle de mon transfert
Au Bayern de Munich pour la fête de la bière
Alerte rouge l'alcool-naute a perdu le contrôle
Je quitte l'univers à pied pour l'unique verre de gnôle
Contrôle anti-dopage j'suis bon pour la touche
Mon taux d'alcoolémie a crevé le ballon d'un souffle
La partie finie entre deux alca-selzer pour un zéro
J'ai la barre transversale plantée dans mon cerveau
J'ai mis un pied sur la lune je me réveille mal luné
Un petit pas pour l'homme un grand pas pour l'ébriété


J'arrose tout le monde ça finit toujours en dessous de table
Vote pour mon estomac en ballottage favorable
Je fais du mal au colon le conquistador du terroir
Partout où je passe s'établit un comptoir
De l'ordre du poireau je veux que mon nez soit décoré
Qu’on m'enterre au Panthéon je servirai de pilier
Sous le signe du verseau j'étais pourtant bien parti
Mais tous mes atouts sont tombés à l'eau de vie
Fallait bien que je me démerde pour vous soutirer du blé
J'ai écrit cette chanson après une étude marché
Je la dédicace à tous les alcooliques
C'est sûr qu'au moins en France je toucherai un large public.

The Queen And The Soldier

Rusted Pipe: The Queen And The Soldier

The soldier came knocking upon the queen's door
He said, "I am not fighting for you any more"
The queen knew she'd seen his face someplace before
And slowly she let him inside.

He said, "I've watched your palace up here on the hill
And I've wondered who's the woman for whom we all kill
But I am leaving tomorrow and you can do what you will
Only first I am asking you why."

Down in the long narrow hall he was led
Into her rooms with her tapestries red
And she never once took the crown from her head
She asked him there to sit down.

He said, "I see you now, and you are so very young
But I've seen more battles lost than I have battles won
And I've got this intuition, says it's all for your fun
And now will you tell me why?"

The young queen, she fixed him with an arrogant eye
She said, "You won't understand, and you may as well not try"
But her face was a child's, and he thought she would cry
But she closed herself up like a fan.

And she said, "I've swallowed a secret burning thread
It cuts me inside, and often I've bled"
He laid his hand then on top of her head
And he bowed her down to the ground.

"Tell me how hungry are you? How weak you must feel
As you are living here alone, and you are never revealed
But I won't march again on your battlefield"
And he took her to the window to see.

And the sun, it was gold, though the sky, it was gray
And she wanted more than she ever could say
But she knew how it frightened her, and she turned away
And would not look at his face again.

And he said, "I want to live as an honest man
To get all I deserve and to give all I can
And to love a young woman who I don't understand
Your highness, your ways are very strange."

But the crown, it had fallen, and she thought she would break
And she stood there, ashamed of the way her heart ached
She took him to the doorstep and she asked him to wait
She would only be a moment inside.

Out in the distance her order was heard
And the soldier was killed, still waiting for her word
And while the queen went on strangeling in the solitude she preferred
The battle continued on

stooding up to object to a state's electoral college votes

In the Clearing Stands a Boxer... a letter from Michael Moore: "I was blown away when Representative Maxine Waters took to the floor and said, 'Mr. Speaker and members, I dedicate my objection to Ohio's electoral votes to Mr. Michael Moore, the producer of the documentary '9/11' and I thank him for educating the world on the threats to our democracy and the proceedings of this house on the acceptance of the electoral college votes for the 2000 presidential election.'"

L'homme qui marche: "il y a des chants pour de nombreuses circonstances, la plupart sont pour favoriser la guérison, tous pour retrouver l'Harmonie perdue, principe de la spiritualité navajo. J'aime cette idée que ce qui peut clocher c'est le manque d'harmonie, ou l'avoir perdue. N'est-ce pas le cas bien souvent? On ne vit plus en harmonie avec les choses, avec le monde, et ça cloche, on vit mal, on tombe malade."
