Faubourg en Fleurs



I went down St-Jean Baptiste street today and it was the Faubourg en Fleurs event. It's a tradition in the neighborhood every year. The street is closed and all the shop have outside displays. The bars put their tables in the middle of the street, you can buy hot dogs and shish taouk sandwiches from some restaurants. Bands are playing along in the street (those little guys where playing some Metallica, Iron Maiden and AC/DC). I love where I live !


Flagr + Flickr



Ever since Geoblogger went down, I was looking for something similar. I found Flagr, a site you can use to put flags on a Google map. The brilliant thing is, you can then link those flags with your photos on Flickr. Simply add a Flagr icon in the photo's comments and the visitors can see where you took the photo. More info about all that in the Flagr::Sharewhere! group on Flickr.

Here's an exemple of a clickable Flagr icon: see it on a map

Homemade Stop-motion movie

While doing some cleaning on my hard drive, I found a video I made some time ago. I used my old Sony Mavica FD91 (that camera used floppy disks !!!) and Adobe Premiere. The soundtrack is by Misstress Barbara.

My 1984 book in Peru

Hahaha ! I've just received an email telling me that the book 1984 by George Orwell I've released in the wild was now in Peru. For those who don't know about BookCrossing, you can compare it to an everchanging virtual worldwide library. You release or catch a book in the wild, then enter a journal about it on the website. After you are done with the book, you release it in the wild again.

You can read the travel log of that book on BookCrossing.com.
