• Happy F***sgiving!

    Sticks and stones may break your bones, but picks and pokes can make a joke1. It is Thanksgiving today in Trumpland — a celebration of harvest and gratitude. Over here, in France, it's a bit the opposite: we celebrate our ungratefulness for blossoming taxes while the government reaps what we sowed.

    Last Friday, Nicola Sirkis of Indochine paid a special tribute to the President of The United States (POTUS) of whom he's a big fan during a live broadcast of their show at the Accor Hotels Arena in Paris, introducing "Trump le monde" (Trump the world), a song he wrote in his honour and which was unfortunately (or conveniently) replaced by commercials. However, Nico's fingers did manage to fall through the censors' net. So if you can use a VPN (or live in France), you may want to watch this “censored” part while still available online HERE.

    Now you may wonder about the remainder — the two less glorious raised fingers pictured above: Thom Yorke's was directed at activists of the anti-Israelian BDS movement, while Noel Gallagher's was aimed at Thom Yorke... among others.

    After Halloween, what about celebrating F***sgiving too? Then on the next day, we'd have Johnny's Friday2 for “Black is black, there's no turning back”. Alternatively, we can always have Beaujolais nouveau as a consolation. And the month of sundays to stay in bed after drinking ourselves to death.
