1: What did you do in 2016 that you’d never done before?

-I finished my first complete comics series. One that didn’t get dropped before the entire story was told. That was certainly a first.
-Oh yeah I joined a comics authors’ union (and it didn’t go too well, in the sense that I was pretty useless there)
-I tried to go vegetarian, or at least flexitarian. It’s not all completely going according to plan, but I’m making a lot of efforts. I cut off dairy products as well, more for digestion reasons than anything else, and that at least was a success.
-shotgun convention, where I made a fanzine, printed only a limited number of copies out, and sold everything in one day at a convention. It was the best idea ever.
-X-rayed my feet
-got sort of hit on in an onsen in Japan by a drunken lady ; it was really funny
-Also I obtained my 10-years immigration card !
-And there was a certain trip I went on but more on that below

2: Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

To tell the truth I kept none of them. One of them was : be more responsible, and I really don’t think I’ve achieved that. Also, « keep my bedroom clean as much as possible » and… hahaha. Yeah. No.

3: Did anyone close to you give birth?

OMG yes and it was the weirdest shit ever. Because it was a childhood friend to whom I can’t say I’m super close, exactly, but we get along really well, we’re somehow very alike and we’ve followed very similar paths in life… up to this point. So when her baby was born I was super weirded out, because it felt like it was something that had happened to me in an alternate universe, and on some level I felt sorry for me ? Like, the alternate universe me who had a baby ? Because I’m pretty sure it ruined her life as much as it would have ruined mine. Anyway. Super bizarre.

4: Did anyone close to you die?

No

5: What countries did you visit?

JAPAN. Trip of a lifetime. Felt a little weird at first because of all the expectations and fantasies I used to have about it. And when I arrived I didn’t take enough time to recover from jetlag so in the first few days I was kind of tired and depressed, but in retrospect it was a very good trip, even the times where I was off my tits with jetlag


I also went back to Mauritius in the summer but that’s not really the important part, that was just the usual with my family doing their best to get on my nerves.

6: What would you like to have in 2017 that you lacked in 2016?

Enough money to clear my debts… ? Also a published book, I didn’t have one this year.

7: What dates from 2016 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?

18th of April, in Japan, where HunterxHunter was published in the Shônen Jump. It was very emotional for me.
And the few days I spent in Miyajima. It was so magical and out of this world.

8: What was your biggest achievement of the year?

Definitely completing my comics series Rhapsody, and also the third volume of Geek & Girly. It was huge for me. And that fanzine I managed to print and sell almost all by myself.

9: What was your biggest failure?

Completely failed to be more responsible as I said before
Haven’t sent my novel to a publisher, haven’t finished my other novel either. I haven’t lost hope or will to do so, I just need more time.

10: Did you suffer illness or injury?

In March I hurt my back pretty badly somehow, just before going to Japan which, if I hadn’t met the very best physiotherapist in Paris who completely cured me after only a few sessions, the whole trip would have been a real goddamn bitch, what with all the horrible futons I had to sleep on throughout the country.
In Miyajima I managed to hurt my knee while climbing down a mountain, which again would have been a bitch for the rest of my trip if I hadn’t gone to see a Japanese physical therapist who didn’t speak a word of English. The conversation in my shitty Japanese and gibberish will be something I’ll remember for the years to come (here’s another first : going to see the doctor in Japan)

Dans la série "j'ai retrouvé des vieux machins sur mon DD", voici un poème en prose que j'ai écrit en première ou en terminale. Il s'agissait d'écrire une élégie à partir de la phrase d'Orphée (selon Cocteau, je crois?): "C'est trop long d'attendre le matin. C'est trop long d'attendre d'être vieux." En le relisant, je l'aime encore bien.

C'est trop long d'attendre le matin. C'est trop long d'attendre d'être vieux.
Quand, au lever du jour, je te verrai, éclaboussée par le soleil glauque, crois-tu qu'alors nous pourrons vivre?
Vivre, c'est offrir au poignard sa poitrine dénudée
C'est se jeter d'une falaise en croyant s'envoler
La vie est une eau qui coule, fluide, entre nos doigts écartés. Écarte-les davantage, qu'elle t'échappe, ne l'étouffe pas dans un poing serré. Et quand la dernière goutte glissera à son tour dans le néant, tu pourras dire "j'ai vécu" sans en douter un seul instant.
La vie est une eau, Eurydice, laisse-la couler entre tes doigts roses et fins.
Elle n'est pas une attente.
Trop de gens attendent. Ils ne font que ça.
Attente du matin...
Attente d'un vrai bonheur aussi incertain qu'éphémère...
Attente des rides et de la mort - car attendre, c'est aussi se résigner. Ne te résigne jamais; affronte, préviens, va au-devant de tout et de la Mort elle-même: vis, aime-moi, meurs, tout embrasée par la passion, car c'est ainsi que je t'aime - brûlée vive.
Interdisons-nous la tiédeur d'un bonheur tranquille et usé.
Laisse-moi, mon Eurydice... laisse-moi te regarder.

In France, we call bachelorette parties "enterrement de vie de jeune fille", which literally means, "maiden's life burial".
I was part of the organization for a friend's, and so we spent the afternoon at the Père Lachaise cemetery to bury her symbolically (amongst many other things, boy that day was a very busy day)
In this picture I am Death incarnate, the "maiden" sitting on the bench is (was) the bachelorette in question.

I FUCKING KNEW IT MUAHAHAHAHAA

Dude, gaydar is in perfect working order. AND I love being right.
sevenswells: (WTF (Big Bang Theory))
Experienced comedy club last night for the first time at a pub in Kingston. It was absolutely brilliant, and I discovered this Canadian comedian called Jason John Whitehead -- he was very funny, also kind of cute; if you ever get the chance to see one of his gigs, I'd recommend it wholeheartedly, I personally had a very good time in his company ^^ (here's a Youtube link to one of his TV appearances: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEz2Yl-l0Fo )

Although the prelude to that fantastic night was a very weird phone call I received in the afternoon (100% authentic):

ME:
Hello?
GUY ON THE PHONE WITH STRONG NORTHERN ACCENT: Hello, I'm David from BT. I'm phoning because--
ME: Yeah, I'm not the person living here, I'm her cousin. Maybe you'd prefer to leave a message or phone la--
"DAVID FROM BT": No, it's okay, I'll speak with you. *explains something about pigeons on the line. He speaks fast, I'm not sure if I understand well. He wants me to count pigeons on some line? Something like that? I have no idea.* Listen, do you have a pen?
ME, decidedly unhelpful and a bit irritated: No.
"DAVID FROM BT", decidedly not flustered and insisting: Can you get one?
ME, sighing heavily, I put the phone down, look for a pen and a piece of paper, come back to the phone, sigh again to signify I'm back.
"DAVID FROM BT": Have you got the pen?
ME: Yeah.
"DAVID FROM BT": And a piece of paper?
ME: Yeah.
"DAVID FROM BT": I'll give you some numbers, can you write them down? *starts enumerating a very, VERY long string of random numbers. I fight the urge to laugh, as the absurdity of the situation finally kicks in.* Did you get them all?
ME: Um. Yes...?
"DAVID FROM BT": Now can you tell me how many holes there are on the phone you're speaking from?
ME: ...I'm sorry what?
"DAVID FROM BT": On the phone you're speaking from. How many holes are there?

At that point I hung up, and he didn't phone back. I still don't know if it was a prank call or if the guy was nuts or if it was a genuine call from BT and I didn't understand anything although I doubt it; but if you heard that conversation on the radio yesterday, well that was me. Maybe it was a game where I could win a million pounds and I totally blew it, what the hell. All I know is that call was about as random as that time where a guy phoned my student residence during my uni years and said his TV company was conducting a survey to improve the quality of Sunday nights erotica films on TV and make them more adequate for the modern audience. I spent almost an hour with him on the phone building an improbable porn story by answering his multiple choice questions; in the end he didn't start laughing and tell me it was all a joke and what a pervert I was, he just thanked me and hung up, like it was indeed an official thing. A year later, another guy (or maybe it was the same guy...?) called for the same thing, same TV company. I told him that we'd already been through this, he didn't insist and didn't call back.

Is it only me who attracts complete randomness like that? I wonder.

Next post will be another Five Food Things, London Special.

Karmic retribution from the very good dream I had featuring Nine the other day: last night I had a weird nightmare where I was lost in the suburbs of London, without any map and the buses never took me where I wanted to go.
At some point I went through a strange funeral home that was nearby a river. Inside they stored luxury cars that were found in the river, and on the ground beside the cars were the bodies of politicians found in the vehicles. They had their hands and feet bound and lay in a fetal position.
The bodies and the cars were still wet.

It was a very nice dream. *sigh*

Perhaps you didn't know this, but the French are actually super strong in the field of animation. Recently some animators have tried to use mixed techniques in their projects, part live-action part 2D animation, and here below are some examples of those truly awesome experimentations that I wanted to share with you:

WTF. Why am I not sleeping? Sorry, I made another one. Maybe I have rabies or something. O____o

So this is kind of a running gag, a reference to these previous strips, and this one I just did.

I really need to go to sleep T____T )
sevenswells: (My fandom)
Originally, I intended to make up for the lack of Sunday Porn today, and I ended up making... this. I don't know, guys.

So we continue our exploration of the Sherlock fandom; this is just one strip, but it's a long one. Safe for work.

And you thought "world's only consulting detective" was random enough... )
sevenswells: (Stupid raisins stay out of my cookie)
I don't know what happened, but this week's episode in Top Chef France was pretty good! I've realized something though: when I watch cooking shows, I have the same behaviour as some people when they're watching a football game:

"NOOOO YOU DIPSHIT YOU DON'T MAKE A TARTARE TO GO WITH A SOFT DRINK, THE SODA'LL JUST RUIN THE TASTE AND WHO WILL NOTICE YOUR FANCY PISTACCHIO AND BLACK OLIVES THEN, HUH, ASSHAT?!"

"YES!!! SURF AND TURF, STÉPHANIE, WAY TO GO, THAT'S MY GIRL, THAT'S MY GIRL!!! YES, YES, EXACTLY: BITTERNESS TO COUNTER THE SWEETNESS OF THE SOFT DRINK, THAT IS SO CLEVER, YOU'RE AWESOME, STÉPHANIE, KEEP GOING!!"

"SHUT UP JUDGE, YOU'RE NOT MAKING ANY SENSE, OF COURSE ARTICHOKES CAN GO WITH CHAMPAGNE AS LONG AS THE ACIDITY IS KEPT IN CHECK, ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?? OH MAN... THIS IS BULLSHIT!! SHUT UP!!!" *throws something at TV*

"DO THAT SHORTBREAD AGAIN YOU WUSS IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU'VE BURNED IT TWICE ALREADY, START OVER!!! NOOOOO DON'T JUST TAKE OUT THE BURNED BITS AAAAAH I CAN'T WATCH THIS I CAN'T!!!"

And, apparently, it doesn't matter if I'm all alone in front of the TV or with friends: it's the exact same thing.

Yes, it scares me a little, too O____o
