Fête de la Musique in Paris

June 22, 2014

111461-la-fete-de-la-musique-2014-a-paris-et-en-ile-de-france-2Fête de la Musique means literally Party of Music and it happens once a year in many French cities and probably somewhere else… they just play live music on every corner… Masses attend to big shows (a friend told me one year they had U2 playing for free in Palais Royal), and yesterday there was Lana de Rey playing somewhere else as well. So there’s always a big fish playing. But if you ever thought Paris is quite crowdy, wait to see Paris a day like yesterday…

If you have the chance to be here next year I would recommend you to pick a program (which are everywhere a week before) and check best options at the closest  “arrondissements”, just in case there something you don’t want to miss… but if you have tendence to stress yourself when there are many shows to choose, or you’re simply too lazy to decide you can do as I did. Join to a group next to the river, drink, talk, decide later…

If you just want to run away from crowds, good luck to find a room for a nice and quite picnic… hard but possible at the 16eme arrondissement.

I hope my little experience about this big day in Paris helps you a little for next editions.

Big Kisses!!!

 

The Pequeños Monsters

December 20, 2010

I remember that day like it was yesterday… It was 9am, I was on the train on my way to work and I started reading facebook updates… everybody was posting they were already in the line, or that they had people in line keeping a place for them… I freaked out and I called my brother (who was in bed yet), I asked him to wake up and go there!!!

He found people camping out there… and running like crazy to “fake door opennings”…

In the line we found some Tokio Hotel fans, and they said organisation then was wide better, many cops controlling crazy teenagers 😮

We saw some of “Fisica y Quimica” (spanish series) cast member… of course I can’t tell you his name ‘cas I don’t even watch it (and I don’t remember)… I just know he’s one of the gays (don’t ask me which ¬¬)

  The Best part is feeling that thousands of souls are waiting for the same thing…. wavessss, wavesss, wavessss….

 Here we are with Catalan Gagas

And Ren goofing with his fancy crayon glasses (inspired on cigarrettes glasses Gaga wears on Telephone’s video) that’s what I call originality 😉

Lady Gaga in Barcelona

December 20, 2010

An hour ago Lady Gaga posted on Facebook they had to cancel tonight’s concert in Paris… that reminded me I hadn’t posted anything from her concert here in Barcelona, last Dec 7th

As you can see I was kinda far… but that didn’t stop us for dancing her world wide known singles or master pieces of her last album “Monster Fame”… we trully had the time of our lives, but I wish screans were a little bigger ¬¬ so I’ll post only what my “powerfull” camara zoom could take 😉

 

 

She said We all were born Superstars (and I agree)

She said I don’t care about money, I don’t care about cars, I DO care about fashion… (I agree as well) ¬¬

Stop the Clocks by Oasis

November 1, 2010

You gotta think I’m an idiot for buying a CD in these times… but I had to ¬¬

It’s been YEARS since last time… A month ago I went to FNAC with my bro (who stills buying them) and I saw The Oasis Definitive Collection

They were my favorite band when I was 12. A flashback came to my mind: Me LOVING Liam Gallagher to death (and his wild Manchester accent)… yes I used to think Manchester was the coolest place ever!!! (just like Beatles fans with Liverpool)

Anyway that’s why I couldn’t help buying this Collection… When I’d got home I was so freaking happy and guess what??? my laptop couldn’t read them (any!!! ¬¬) That was too much!!! 

I’m posting this now ‘cas Today, after a month, I’m playing them 😀 and I can say again:

 90’s BRIT POP RULES!!!

 

Even I’m so happy with my old new toy, they forgot VERY important songs from third album!!! C ‘mon!!! BE HERE NOW!!!!: D’ you know what I mean?, Don’t go away, Stand by me…

Waking up in Vegas

October 31, 2010

Happy Halloween!!!

I found a song I used to sing last year…  and I’ll be singing in two weeks wooohooo!!!

Shut up and put your money where your mouth is
That’s what you get for waking up in Vegas
Get up and shake the glitter off your clothes now
That’s what you get for waking up in Vegas

I also had a Britney fantasy ;)

September 29, 2010

Hello everybody!!! I survived to a General Strike today, and my reward was watch Britney/Brittany Glee’s episode, yeeaahh!!!

I listened Glee’s versions. They are all good, and my very fave is Toxic!!! 

You all know my devotion for Britney, so I enjoyed a lot with this episode… But If I have to be a little critical, I think I would say they were trying to clean up her image A LOT!!! 

However, they said something it’s true!!! She makes you feel Stronger (than yesterday, lol), She’s been an inspiration for a whole generation: BRITNEY IS POP CULTURE!!!

makes you dream… DREAM BIG!!!

Personally I think everybody needs a Britney fantasy, just like Glee’s 😉

it’ll make you feel FREE!!!!

groove slam, work it back, filter that, baby bump that track

May 5, 2010

I couldn’t believe it, but it’s truth!!! LadyGaGa will be in da Haus, I mean , in Barcelona… in december, my favourite month for obvious reasons (birthdays, christmas, holidays and ‘cas new years means renew urself), anyway, the thing is that this will be another reason to love this december 2010.

Let me tell you my story with Lady GaGa… it was july of 2008 and my brother made me listen Poker Face and Beautiful, Dirty, Rich… and I didn’t pay attention to him at all… I thought It was just another “one hit wonder”, the thing is that I went to London that september, and guess what… I fall in love with the UK’s number one lists GaGa queen… When I came back home, I told my brother about it to download some of her music, and he said: I have the whole album months ago…

So my advice for you guys is to listen ur brother or sister when they say you’re in front of new pop’s phenomenon, or monster (except Kesha, I hate her)***

and my second advice is to get a ticket for this music freak as soon as possible!!!

Sueño de Morfeo @ Hard Rock Cafe

April 14, 2010

I’ve just got from a free concert at Hard Rock Cafe… This is not another spanish pop group… well it is, but their songs talk about feelings in every level… I’m glad I’d stayed… couple beers alone, and reading a book… I’m sure people around me thought I was a freak… and I am… LoL

Finally I found Raquel at the restroom, and I took a pic with her… I don’t look great, but I didn’t have an opportunity to do another shoot…

Jagged Little Pill

April 11, 2010

I know this record is very old… but I can’t help it, my favourite in the world, I promise… It reminds me childhood, love (baby blue), family(Monica), friends (Pia, LoL)… don’t miss this 90’s classic. Probably you remember songs like Ironic, Hand in my pocket or You ougtha Know… but trust me when I say the whole album is unbelievable.

Other very good ones: Head Over Feet, All I Realy Want, Forgiven… wow I like them all, I’m sorry (LoL)   

Britney singing “You ougtha know” on her Tour:

Lyrics of an hymn:

I want you to know, that I’m happy for you
I wish nothing but the best for you both
An older version of me
Is she perverted like me
Would she go down on you in a theatre
Does she speak eloquently
And would she have your baby
I’m sure she’d make a really excellent mother

’cause the love that you gave that we made wasn’t able
To make it enough for you to be open wide, no
And every time you speak her name
Does she know how you told me you’d hold me
Until you died, till you died
But you’re still alive

And I’m here to remind you
Of the mess you left when you went away
It’s not fair to deny me
Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
You, you, you oughta know

You seem very well, things look peaceful
I’m not quite as well, I thought you should know
Did you forget about me Mr. Duplicity
I hate to bug you in the middle of dinner
It was a slap in the face how quickly I was replaced
Are you thinking of me when you fuck her?

’cause the love that you gave that we made wasn’t able
To make it enough for you to be open wide, no
And every time you speak her name
Does she know how you told me you’d hold me
Until you died, til you died
But you’re still alive

And I’m here to remind you
Of the mess you left when you went away
It’s not fair to deny me
Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
You, you, you oughta know

’cause the joke that you laid on the bed that was me
And I’m not gonna fade
As soon as you close your eyes and you know it
And every time I scratch my nails down someone else’s back
I hope you feel it…well can you feel it

Well, I’m here to remind you
Of the mess you left when you went away
It’s not fair to deny me
Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
You, you, you oughta know

This is a pic of the band: Planeta imaginario. It was a very intimate concert. My favourite part was the name of the songs… they were really funny. But what really matters, I mean the music, was very smart. The piano and saxophone were splendid. But I “oOOhhHed” like crazy for the bass… Anyway I took a lot of pics but there weren’t  very good.I’m sorry!!!!
