    24 heures d’écriture – lettre de motivation

    Posted on by

    Le lyrisme suinte de la réalité. Mais quand le jour se lève, que le radio-réveil s’excite et qu’il faut, bon gré mal gré, se lever, généralement de mauvaise humeur, esquiver les objets machiavéliques qui veulent blesser  la plante du pied, se faire un café, rouler une cigarette, s’extirper de ces songes merveilleux où le monde, bigarré de… Read more »

    KONY 2012 – April 2012

    Posted on by

    I wasn’t born when Franco died. And my parents before me didn’t have to witness the Nazi horrors. I’m white, I’m agnostic and I’m middle class. I have no problems to speak of. There is a roof over my head, a comfy bed to sleep in and a fridge nicely filled with organic produces. And… Read more »

    Tapas Etiquette – March 2012

    Posted on by

    British subtleties, for the non-initiated (that is: anyone who is not British), are not that easy to grasp. A simple “I’ll bear it in mind”, from which most would assume we’ll make an effort to remember, actually signifies that we’ve already forgotten about it! Such things like “If it’s ok with everyone else” does not… Read more »

    Love and Dependency – February 2012

    Posted on by

    This is a letter I received from a reader who felt like sharing his pain. I find it ludicrous.   The quietness surrounding me is piercing cold. As I sit in the here and now, soon to be the there and then, I wonder about what has gone wrong. My spirit seems to have been… Read more »

    Maria (censored) – January 2012

    Posted on by

    Spain’s traditions and especially Spain’s fiestas have always remained a mystery to me. I’m not one to complain about days off work for obscure reasons and even less about long bank holiday weekends but all these virgins are making me dizzy. There is the virgen del pilar, virgen del almudena, virgen de no se que… Read more »

    A Christmas Carol – January 2012

    Posted on by

    In a world where knowledge has been brought to a whole new level, where, by a simple touch of the canonized thumb, you can order whatever you may possibly not need by apps, the good old nights in front of the telly are no longer a peaceful, stress-free deliverance. You settle in front of the… Read more »

    One For Sorrow – December 2011

    For the Audio Version, Click on the Play Button thingy!  [Audio clip: view full post to listen] Apocalypse, Armageddon, the end is nigh…or so they say. I have to admit that until recently I had been quite dubious with this end of the world nonsense. It would take more than a bunch of lazy Mayans… Read more »

    Dramatisation – November 2011

    Posted on by

    Being the good Brit that I am, I am not one for confrontations. I pose my demands in a nice and articulated manner and expect the recipient to respond with the same civility. And if everything else fails, I rely on a good old cup of tea to fix the problem. (Is there anything a… Read more »

    Christian Guilt Trip 2:2 – September 2011

    Posted on by

    By Leo “Majo” Drape There I was, shivering, impatiently waiting the result of a test that would change my life forever. I could feel a dribble of sweat making its way down my forehead. Next to me, Jerome was reading Proust (Like the pretentious A-hole that he is), unfazed – his chakras nicely aligned. A… Read more »

    Christian Guilt Trip 1:2 – August 2011

    Posted on by

    By Leo “Majo” Drape As a child, I was innocence wrapped with white ribbons. I did my chores without being asked and helped old ladies cross the street. I went to church every Sunday and I confessed my sins on a regular basis. Sins which mostly involved watching too much TV and lying about brushing… Read more »
