Rock is still Young

Remember this old standard from AC/DC : T.N.T ? I was very young then, but I bet it was a shock to many:

I'm dirty, mean and mighty unclean
I'm a wanted man
Public enemy number one

OK, it is still possible now to play dirty and mighty unclean. Look at this SFU cover:

Rock is still young... except it is now coated in Metal.

Tattoo Queen

One week ago, I visited a Tattoo convention with my cousin Elise in Belfort... and I shot some photographs. This is one of my favs :

In case you are interested by various skulls and flowers artistically painted on some previously creamy white skin, the whole set is here.

By the way, you may ask how did I manage to take photographs without any camera ? I finally decided not to wait until I had been fully reimbursed and bought another one...

Doomed by Bristish Airways (contd)

Remember my first post about my digital camera being stolen on a British Airways flight from Phoenix to Paris ? This is not the end of it...

According to the Montreal Convention, air carriers are strictly liable for proven damages up to 100,000 Special Drawing Rights (about 1200 euros). So BA was responsible for the loss of my camera, and I sent a mail to BA asking them to reimburse me.

Of course, they replied this (translated in English) :
I am sincerely sorry to learn about the loss of your camera, and I thank you for informing me about it.

We take extra care of our passengers personal belongings, but each checked luggage must go under the hands of a lot of different people before being checked in on the plane or checked out after the flight. In the unlikely cases were some articles are lost, it is almost impossible to determine the cause, and because of that, we always recommend to keep in the cabin the objects of value.

I regret not being able to indemnify you for the loss of your camera(...).

Of course, this is not the end of it, as they are trying to escape their responsibilities. And as for the extra care, they lost more luggage per passenger than any other carriers in 2006.

Hotness Prevails

Time for April fools, folks...

"This is me, half naked, because its extremely hot there. It's also extremely hot because I turned on my light, and my lamp, to the highest brightness level because this camera doesn't pick-up light very well, and I had to light myself up. And I...feel like I'm lightning myself up on FIRE".

There is no such thing as an emo person, because every time someone has called someone else an emo, they always deny, even though they listen to emo and their whole culture is emo. If you're calling them emo, they're like : No, I'm not emo, no, no, NO, NO !! There is no actual emo person, it's like a stereotype.

This man is really crazy. This video won the best commentary for youtube 2007 first video awards. To look at all his acts, go to winekone.
