Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.
1. Which comedians entertain you or not? Why?
Okay, well, I guess there’s not much point in translating my answer to this question? I mean, there could be, but my answer was
les Robins des Bois, and you’re quite unlikely to know them if you’re reading this.
2. What could persuade you to go and see a movie you weren’t interested in?
Being invited. Or having a monthly pass and nothing else to do. Or hearing everyone I know tell me how great the movie is. Well, whichever, I’d need to be invited, considering the sorry state of my bank account.
3. How do you view productions like Pop Idol or Popstars?
I won’t translate the specifics here, because they’re as relevant as my answers to question 1. Let’s say I’ve got nothing against real-TV (when it’s done well, and it’s not often, but even when it’s done badly, like the French Big Brother, I can still watch regularly), and nothing against fabricating recording artists (when it’s done well, too, which isn’t always the case, either).
4. If you had the power to erase an event or a period of your life, how would you use it?
A period? Then can I say from zero to twenty-seven? Alright, let’s say I’d stop at twenty-six, because that’s the year I created my blog, and it’s quite a constructive move. (And, no, I’m not really ironic and, yes, it’s all the more pathetic.)
However, I’ve always very sincerely believed in
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Truly. So I wouldn’t seriously want to erase everything, since I survived all that (or at least it seems, maybe I haven’t been notified?) and it contributed to make me what I am now. But if I could erase all that’s coming afterwards…
5. How would you react if you found out someone close to you is doing drugs?
Well, it happens that, if you don’t count my best friend, who doesn’t drink doesn’t smoke doesn’t do drugs, the other two people I spend most time talking to are, at least, somewhat heavy drinkers.
I’d like to go all soap morals, say how bad it is to alienate oneself and stuff, but… well, it doesn’t fit.
I wondered once what I could tell a friend who wants to kill themselves (which is more or less the same thing). And I came to the conclusion that, considering my current situation and my past experiences, I wouldn’t have that many convincing things to say.
Is it too late yet to skip that question?
6. When was the last time you felt unsafe? In retrospect, was that feeling justified?
I don’t know, probably in the subway at midning… But I’m not one who panics. That’s my fatalistic side: if I must get slaughtered someday, it’ll just happen, whether I panic or not, so I might as well wait quietly and look the other way so as not to provoke fate.
No, seriously, I’m not kidding, that’s really what I do. (Well, I don’t act like a complete unconscious jerk who doesn’t realize what risks he’s taking: I’m careful in desert streets, I make up karate moves in my mind when I’m in a train car with suspicous people, etc.)
7. Have you ever stolen something?
Yes, I have. And although it’s been a long time ago, I’m not gonna go into the specifics. But it was just one time, and I regretted it for months. Not that I was discovered, but that’s the way I am, I feel remorse when I do something bad. Oh, yeah, it does suck, and my life would be so much simpler if I could behave like a dirty bastard. But life is not supposed to be simple, is it?
