MISTAKES OF MEN

The delusion that individual advancement is made by crushing others.

The tendency to worry about things that cannot be changed or corrected.

Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it.

Refusing to set aside trivial preference.

Neglecting the development and refinement of the mind and so not acquiring the habit of reading and studying.

Attempting to compel other persons to believe and live as we do so.

Here is the show that I went to see on September 3rd.

In one of the videos, you can actually see me… However only me can see that it was me ! Fortunately, I didn’t go there to be seen, I would have been disappointed !

If you have time, watch all the little videos. They are not very long and they are worth your time !

Le festin de ma vie

Filed under: Feelings,Music — emimizolie @ 11:05 pm

Les rêves des amoureux sont comm’(e) le bon vin
Ils donn(ent) de la joie ou bien du chagrin
Affaibli par la faim je suis malheureux
Volant en chemin tout ce que je peux
Car rien n’est gratuit dans la vie

L’espoir est un plat bien trop vite consommé
A sauter les repas je suis habitué
Un voleur solitaire est triste Ă  nourrir
A un jeu si amer je n’peux réussir
Car rien n’est gratuit dans…

La vie… Jamais on ne me dira
Que la course aux étoiles; ça n’est pas pour moi
Laissez moi vous Ă©merveiller et prendre mon en vol
Nous allons en fin nous régaler

La fĂŞt(e) va enfin commencer
Sortez les bouteilles; finis les ennuis
Je dresse la table, de ma nouvell(e) vie
Je suis heureux à l’idée de ce nouveau destin
Une vie Ă  me cacher et puis libre enfin
Le festin est sur mon chemin

Une vie Ă  me cacher et puis libre enfin
Le festin est sur mon chemin

Here is the dream of many children… But you know what ? Today it’s miiiiiiiiiine !!!

A friend of mine and one of my sisters sent me this week an amount of candies that are not produced here!

For you to realise the scale on the pictures, I put a pair of (wonderful) shoes on it, so you can figure, how huge it is !

Ahahahan, you can see that they insisted on the Dragibus, Schtroumph and Crocodiles ! You know me so well !

The best in the story ? I don’t have to share ! You all are in France and I am in America ! Too bad !!! Is that the American dream ? I’m in ! oooo yeahhhhhh !

( You can notice that the shape represents an explosion of candies! )

Saturday Night Live

Those videos are hilarious ! Have a look !

Tina Fey plays wonderfully the role of Sarah Palin. Given the recent “exploits” of that latter, the exageration is very slight !

The first link refers to an interview Palin got and the second one is a caricature of Sarah Palin again, yet with Hilary Clinton.

When Apple “bites” you…

Filed under: Technology — emimizolie @ 12:09 am

As most of you know now, I’m leaving not physically (not yet!) but at least spiritually the dark side that Windows is! The most I learn from Mac, the most I literally melt for it!

Few days ago, I spent nothing less than 2 hours and half in the 5th Ave. MacStore, working on my user’s experience on a MacBook and enjoying the ease-of-use wave that keeps submerging me since a few months now.

Apple hit me once again today when I discovered the new range of notebook it released today. Although, it’s pretty obvious that I don’t have enough experience to compare the different versions, watching the Steve Jobs today’s keynote was almost enough to convince me!

Have a glance there:

http://events.apple.com.edgesuite.net/0810rtdws876/event/index.htm

The Mac’s Genesis is quite impressive even for a layman like me! I just have to remember how painful it is to carry my laptop in my school bag to understand the importance of those advances!

Of course, I’m not only referring to its weight. They add some features such as a fresh-invented graphic processors called GeForce 9400M ( yes I know what it is and its purpose, thank you!), an LED screen that contributes to better graphic performances, a new trackpad with glass surface and 4 new fingers’ functions, an illuminated keyboard ( much more important than you think !), and so on!

Even though my pc’s performances are not bad, its regular or about-to crashes scare me enough to wish a MacBook. No really, using a Mac is less stressful and the pleasure is greater, even more with the new versions. Far away from me the venture to influence you (:p) to switch for Mac, but if you get the opportunity, go into a MacStore to tease some of their products and you will see by yourself. Don’t make me start talking about their by-products as the Time Capsule for instance !!!

Staying in Apple releases, I’m not really convinced by the new Ipods Nano Chromatic. Although I like its general shape, its gaping screen gives to it a funny allure. I won’t give up mine, still number one in my heart!
