Online radio

The radio show just finished a couple of minutes ago and I'm already looking forward to listening to it again, next Sunday (from home!!!).

le masque et la plume  which radio host is Jérôme Garcin.

It's been aired way before I was born and underwent multiple changes over the decades, I guess, but it's the same principle: theater and movies hence the mask, books hence the plume (feather?).

Radio manages something that TV has never, or so rarely, in spite of the visual in addition to the audio: it captures, it grabs attention by the very nature of what the subject is about.

There used to be (I think he semi-retired a couple of years ago) a show on TV B.Pivot hosted but it never got my attention as much as this radio program does; tension due to cameras around maybe.

Plus they really don't hesitate to tell their mind about anything: if what they saw or read sucked, they do let know, there and then but it's never vulgar and always documented and argued.

They disagree with one another too. But there again it never turns into a fight.

I'd like to attend a show some day. It's recorded in public on Thursdays and at la maison de la radio  at Paris (of course).

It's a pledge.

In the mean time, I record and listen to podcasts (hence) in loop. Because, like with movies  or songs, I'm never tired of listening to same programs again and again.

Benefit of having no memory, I guess ^_^

PC vs MAC second season (or is it?)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBSrRYe8-68I liked the first series a lot. This one has a different tone though… but I like it too.

this old man

Why did that tune come to mind? What made me think of it?

This old man, he played one
He played knick-knack on my thumb
With a knick-knack paddywhack, give a dog a bone
This old man came rolling home

This old man, he played two
He played knick-knack on my shoe
With a knick-knack paddywhack…

I was thinking of the french version of course but couldn't remember the lyrics, neither could EN here in finnish. KL and LP respectively from Northern Ireland and USA immediately took the cue and sang along as I hummed it.

Wait…

I've recently read here and there posts and comments that rather go against my philosophy of blogging.

Respect is the key word.

Let's not forget one important factor: anybody reads this because I chose so. If we were in real life, so to speak, it would be as if my doors were open and my windows had no curtains.

You don't like what you see? Tell me then. I'm eager to learn and correct if need be. You still persist in saying I insulted you. You're welcome to leave, I'll show you the door.

Let's not forget that I  invited you, it's for me to decide who I let in not the opposite.

Now if for some reason one of my LJ friends, whose friendship BTW hopefully goes beyond what LJ permitted, decides to shut me off because of some argument he has with someone else I barely know I don't understand.

I'm the looser here. Do I deserve it?
