First of all I like to push for the Netflix series “This is Pop” – actually really good. And of course for people in France, who think I am strange, episode 3 about the Swedish music wonder.
Not only a fantastic story about the Cheiron studios in the 90s but also explains a lot why Swedes in social situations are plain Swedish and behave like we do. Even I got an epiphany from it.
But even more, the big news yesterday… Mylène Farmer will go on tour again. Ticket release in October 2021 for the shows in the summer 2023. So now my main goals will be to manage to buy tickets (only 2 shows advertised), and remember that 3 weeks of Mylène in 2019 sold out in a few hours (but then it was one venue for all Europe).
Even Geneva is on the tour plan so I guess I have to start to spread the world also for my colleagues in Switzerland. But back to the goals, get tickets (save the September paycheck to afford them) and stay alive until June 2023!
And also from yesterday, Financial Times, the UK reacted on the Governmental crisis in Sweden and did it in a very accurate way really…
But to be honest I have not seen the article in the Times, so I can’t verify it actually was in yesterdays edition. Why I’m not sure? Do a magazine like Financial Times misspell a name like this? Lofven? His name is Löfvèn – To not have 100% knowledge about å, ä and ö, I buy that, but when they write names they usually get things right…
In any case, true or not, it’s very accurate and true. But they missed the part to explain that his choice to bring the Green party in to the Government must be his mistake of a life time. It’s actually more them the Swedes want gone than Löfvèn (even if I am happy if both leaves). But he has a week to try to find a solution to stay and believe me they will try.
Story of the badge. I arrived back home from work yesterday and the door code box was brand new… Shiny and silverly and now 1 2 3 was on the top row, and whatever I tried the famous “click” when the door unlocks never came. After a while the gardienne came out and told me the code been changed, and not only a new code – we are with “Badge”. Lovely, cause I never remember the code, its muscle memory open the door when I am involved.
So waiting to sign the “I received my 2 badges” form I got an envelope with the badges, and actually not thought more about it until I decided to test the badge this morning. Cause perfect time, no one is up when I am on my way to work so I could test and be an idiot without anyone knowing.
So I opened the envelope prepared to find two badges size like a 2 euro coin and out fell two badges huge as a lap top heavy as hell. Humongous badges, maybe made to hide behind if someone chase you. I don’t want that on my key chain, I have a lovely Mylène Farmer key chain for heavens sake.
Well… It is a French thing to take a good idea and tweak just a bit, just enough to make non French wonder, WTF? And act normal about it. Some things made the same way:
Doors opening “in”, drive on the right side but all pedestrian activities is left, call a baugette a she and not produce any 1.5 btl of sprakling water.
The passed night at 00h01 Mylène Farmer released a new single, a really good one… She also released a new film but only on Amazon, why? Hopefully we will be able to see it on other platforms or as DVD later on. At least on her own website.
Today, have no idea from what time (can’t find the info) for the release of the tickets to Myléne Farmer 2019 – The film in November 2019.
I struggle… Buy or not, for heavens sake the film will be released on DVD and I have seen the show twice already, I kind of between two bales of hay or maybe a rock and a hard place.
Again it is a once in a lifetime experience but for a movie? Really Mr Björn, think think think
Beside this it is another major hot fantastic day in Paris. And of course it’s never fun to work when it’s extremely hot and the Paris Metro ligne 13 smells extra nice when people sweat as pigs but still… It’s summer, it’s hot, it’s amazing.
Remember this in February when winter never seems to end, whatever Greta Thunberg say.
After visiting the Defense Arena twice to enjoy the Mylène Farmer concert I received pictures from the concert on the 18th of June when Sting actually joined Mylène, not only as a hologram… He was there live… Bummer.
It’s obvious that my friends don’t understand me, or more they do not understand the meaning of life… My former colleague Agustina entered her work without a clue who Mylène Farmer is… I tried to update her on the obvious: “Take Beatles, ABBA, Rollings Stones, Mozart, Beyoncè and Madonna” and morph them into one person and you will end up with Mylène Farmer.
From my point of view a perfect and very true statement something my next former colleague Sèbastien kind of thought was “en peu” outside real life but at least he admitted that she is a French icon.
So, yesterday I received my ticket for the First Concert in June 2019, yes the FIRST of (I think 7 all together) which i gladly shared on the social media at my disposal and the reaction from my envious friends was – NADA! NIENTE! NONE! AUCUN!
Don’t you understand how jealous you all need to be? Whats wrong with you guys?
So, I only announce this once, I will try to get tickets to at least 2 more of the Concert dates but cheaper seats, “Da Girl is expensive to watch live”
