Met up with a few fellow frenchmen yesterday… went to a small bar in shibuya for a few beers.
Nordine’s new shaved head look was quite reminiscent of a Palestinian militant on the run. Of course, the pose he took for the pictures did not help either…
Anyway, here are the pics (touched up a bit in Photoshop) and I’ve got his address in tokyo, just in case the Mossad is interested.

taken with my lovely little digital camera (impossible to whip it out without prompting a strident kawaiiiiii-ne! from every single female in a 10 feet radius)…

Anyway, these are from some small dinner parties at the house last week and a recent outing to some izakaya in Kamata. Elena going back to Brazil, the discovery of a pretty damn good bottle of California red, and the fact we just felt like it, were respectively deemed sufficient reasons for these bouts of partying.

You can see the whole lot here.

because every once in a while, I dip in my rather, ahem, eclectic collection of music and put whatever I get my hands on first (sometimes it can be atmospheric d’n’b, other times chopin), I was listening to some old Led Zeppelin stuff and through a brief association of thoughts, ended up reminiscing about a rather random party snapshot from a few years back…

Ok, thanks to a conjunction of events, such as: no special plans to go out, no work tomorrow morning, some leftover brown substance donated by a friend and a mood for cooking…
I decided to make magic brownies

Yes, I sound like I have a bit too much time on my hands…

But of course, I also cooked a large batch of regular brownies, to share with a few people. They both had a lot of success.

Quite baked right now…

Well anyway, the combination of brownies and Apocalypse Now redux was quite a success…

right now, I’m the litterary equivalent of the drunk frat-boy sticking his head out of the prom limo to yell at the passerbys. So I’ll stop here…
