Paris Hearthrob, Femme Frog or Poet?

June 10, 2008

In Buenos Aires, when I interview club owners or designers a number of them express a vision of “elegant trash” that they’re looking to project. This video nailed it with the cabaret ho models in the street car-styled tour bus.  Don’t get shook by this strange choice of still from Youtube – this guy is the least attractive thing in the video.

Raphael’s song isn’t bad either, with his ode to Serge Gainsbourg. He was recently interviewed on CNN where he explained that even though he speaks English well enough, he dreams and thinks in French, his poetry doesn’t happen in other languages, so no English songs. He could go Gogol Bordello on us anglophones and bring the ESL noise.
