Oscars are somewhat disappointing, these days, aren’t they ?

From Pretoria to Hollywood, Oscars are disappointing, these days. Not just because cheap pizzas are less distinguished than French “Champagne and petits fours”, or due to Botox overdoses and disastrous haircuts. But some stars lack glamour.

Germany and France will celebrate the Golden Jubilee of their “Entente Cordiale” in Paris

Of course, it’s not as glamorous as a Queen’s Jubilee, and The Economist, French citizens from French speaking  London and other France, Germany, and/or Euroland bashers may smile at “la souris accouchée par la montagne franco-germanique”.

Bonus : some may like more glamorous (and British) Jubilees.

#Amour et #Haneke, toujours l’Amour et Haneke à #Cannes … : That’s All, Folks !

Some like the sun more hot than the stars in Cannes, the people more glamorous than oldschool politicians in France and the film more fun than real life in the world. But nobody desserved the 2012 Palme d’Or more than Haneke, that’s all, folks.

Glamour, toujours Glamour under the French Sun at the Festival de Cannes

The French have their own good taste, they call it … normal. The believe, for instance, that solar electricity must be overpaid and subsidized with the other hand. As long as Frenchonomics work and create sustainable jobs under French sun …

Food and Weather may seem Strange in #Paris, but French Diplomacy and Government are just #Normal

No panic, no need to close all French Facebook accounts to protect the IPO from the commies. Let G8 Leaders, diplomats and NATO people talk together before anybody decides to start a new war, be it economic, electronic or whatever new kind.

Et maintenant ? #Paris #Berlin and other places for President François #Hollande …

François Hollande is a pragmatic world leader who will fly in the afternoon to meet the German Chancellor Merkel for a new kind of encounter with a view to save Greece, boost Europe and … have a good dinner. Mr. Hollande is French, too.

#Cannes 2012 Selection : So Sexy, So Glamour ! vs #Paris 2012 #Election : So French, So … What ?

Nothing new under the French spotlights (the sun has gone elsewhere, these cold, grey, rainy days in Europe). Be it in Cannes or Paris, they just all wanna be loved by you, that’s all, folks. But it’s Casual Friday everywhere, #FF 😉 @all and poo poo pi doo !
